It's time for another installment of our thrice daily series: What is Britney up to? Sigh, well, the good thing is it's all decent news, considering how bad it has gotten of late. You all were surprisingly torn on whether or not having her family around is going to help Brit, but at the very least it sounds like Lynne is committed to giving her daughter some home cooked meals. Hey, anything is better than her usual fast food fare.
She needs all the good energy she can get, too, because she had her boys today. She missed the first scheduled visitation on Friday — at first the excuse was that her buzzer was broken, but rumor also has it that she knew the kids were outside and didn't want to answer because she doesn't think she needs the parenting coach. That would seem to be untrue, as she did have the coach with her today when she got together with her two kids.
The final bit of news about Miss Brit is that when she was out and about over the weekend, staying in her many hotels, she applied for a job as a bartender at The Viceroy. This doesn't come as much of a surprise considering she applied to be a waitress at Les Deux a few months ago (but I guess that job didn't pan out). We know that Brit's not hurting for cash these days and I kinda doubt that she's just bored and needing a new job. So, unfortunately, I feel like she's just being obnoxious. Boo.
Despite rumors otherwise, J Lo did not make the big baby announcement back in her hometown at Saturday night's MSG concert, nor was she ready to give away any details at TRL today. Though, after that very telling photo, plus her new found love for spandex and flowy shirts, we've pretty much already made up our minds about J Lo's pregnancy. Obviously this milestone in Jennifer and Marc's personal life was the topic of public discussion long before they intended it to be. J Lo recently talked to Giant Magazine about having her privacy violated by the paparazzi and watching other stars deal with the same problem. Here's more:
- "People wonder why Britney or Lindsay or Paris is acting crazy, but they don't know what it means not to be able to walk outside your house," says Lopez. " 'Oh, but she has $10 million!' they say, but that doesn't help when you can't ... feel good!"
- "I feel so bad when I see people going through the beginnings of it. Because it's not fun. You have to learn to navigate it 'cause if you don't, it will eat you up. ... It's a lot of pressure. And you gotta keep grounded and find a way to deal with it and hopefully have love in your life."
She sounds like Jennifer has the motherly instinct coming through as she gives young Hollywood women some advice. Now if only she'd make an announcement but perhaps she's learning from another young starlet who never made the obvious announcement.

Hayden and Milo spent some quality off-screen time together at the LA Kings hockey game over the weekend. We know their co-stars have denied that anything is going on, but this looks like a date night to us. All that laughing and gazing into each other's eyes is pretty telling. As for us, we're going to make tonight a date night with Heroes. Hopefully tonight will be less scary than last week, although the return of Sylar probably won't help our cause very much.
Earlier today we read Victoria Beckham's blog entry about the experience shooting her cover spread for Elle over the weekend, but I never imagined it would be this fabulous! It looks like she and the crew must have been keeping the paparazzi on their toes, shooting all over Paris. Sure, most of these outfits (and oh man, those shoes) are entirely unwearable, but Victoria (and only Victoria) can pull them all off. Fab wants to know which look you like best — and I think I'm going to have to go with the space age white dress. Girlfriend totally has a sense of humor about all the jokes people make about her.

Nicole hit the red carpet solo for the premiere of Margot at the Wedding, but Keith was back by her side to walk her around NYC this weekend. He looks all cleaned up since his motorcycle accident (certainly in better shape than post-crash Clooney), but maybe that's because the incident wasn't as bad as it seemed. Nicole claims the whole thing was blown out of proportion, saying, “He didn’t really have an accident at all. That was a bit of an exaggeration. It was a little mishap. He’s safe and sound.” Whatever the case may be, we're just happy to see that Keith didn't suffer any serious injuries.

While Victoria is busy with Paris Fashion Week and gearing up for her Spice Girls Reunion, David got to have a special boys' day out in LA yesterday. He took Brooklyn and Romeo to a fair and even braved a few of the rides. How much do you love seeing Becks looking effortlessly cool as he tries to blend in with the locals even with the geek BB clip? We wonder what other fun stuff he and the boys got into without Posh there to supervise.
Scarlett and Bradley Cooper looked very natural together filming a scene for He's Just Not That Into You in LA over the weekend. It's been so fun seeing all the unexpected couples in this movie, though Ben and Jen totally take the cake. Scarlett is a bit of a chameleon, gorgeous one day and not the next, but Bradley is always a favorite around these Sugar parts. So, he's no Matt Damon or even Jen and Violet, but he's enough of a treat to help wish Lisa (aka PopSugar) a very, very Happy Birthday! Here's to a day full of adorable celebrity babies (especially Katie, the cutest of all), a cleaner Britney (yeah, right) and absolutely no Sharon Stone! Happy, Happy Birthday, thank you for everything that you do!

Some of Hollywood's most promising young stars joined forces over the weekend for Variety's Power of Youth Benefit in LA. Vanessa Hudgens got right to work on improving her somewhat tainted image, joining fellow starlets Miley Cyrus and Emma Roberts on the red carpet. All of the proceeds went to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, so it's pretty great to see that Hollywood's teenagers are already getting into philanthropy and giving back. Hopefully they can keep it up as they continue their rise to fame.

Will You Keep Watching "The Next Iron Chef?" Here's a novel idea: Take eight ridiculously qualified chefs and make them compete against each other. Add a lot of over-the-top theatrics, a knowledgeable — if not slightly patronizing — host, throw in a beautiful backdrop, and you've got yourself the first episode of "The Next Iron Chef." [Warning, spoilers ahead].
