Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Rehab Baby One More Time

Britney Spears, according to TMZ, has checked into rehab for the second time. A representative for Britney issued this statement today,

“Britney Spears has voluntarily checked herself into an undisclosed rehab facility today. We ask that the media respect her privacy as well as those of her family and friends at this time.”

Another former tween star heading to rehab. Shocker. This move is key to help Britney shake off the weird events of the last few months which have included flashing her goodies, taking her clothes off at clubs, forgetting that she has children, and shaving her head.

I’m wondering what Kevin Federline has to say about all of this. The girl is now in in-patient rehab. This doesn’t mean that she gets to bring her children to the center. I’ve watched a lot of “Judging Amy” and Amy Gray would totally have given Kevin custody A LONG time ago. I know her mother is taking care of these kids but according to my experiences watching this TV show (really I get most of my post-college education from daytime television) the Department of Children and Family Services usually takes away a parent’s custody once they enter rehab facilities.

I bet Kev is getting a lot of money to stay away from the media storm surrounding his ex and his kids. A LOT of money.

Wonder What Ever Happend to That O-Town Guy?

Remember Ashley Parker Angel? The O-Town guy who had his own MTV reality show, “There and Back?” He had a baby, he made an album, and he hit the charts with some forgettable single. I thought that was the run of this second shot at fame but now he is on Broadway in the hit musical, “Hairspray.” This guy essentially spent 5 years of his life on a reality TV show and I guess deep down he has always wanted to be a Broadway Baby. He joins Alexa Vega (from countless Lifetime TV movies and I guess some other stuff) in the Broadway company. Diana DeGarmo (from American Idol) just left and the un-cute Duff has also been in “Hairspray.”

So if you are in NYC and you are a big ole Ashley Parker Angel fan check him out on the great white way! Click here for his MySpace.

High Flying (Of the Sober Kind)

I love basketball, I really do. This weekend, I fully enjoyed the All Star festivities. If you missed the slam dunk competition, really the best part of the whole weekend, here are the highlights. Michael Jordan makes a rare appearance (as a judge) and the beginning of the video has some crazy NBA dance moves. I think it is amazing how these guys can jump so high. Sometimes all five feet of me imagines that I am a baller and that I can also dunk. The Beet knows, however, I’m lucky if I can get a free throw.

Also, Go Suns. Enjoy
Seriously, this is what happens when I try not to make fun of Britney Spears. I write about basketball. Come on Lindsay, do something fun. Date someone random. Go.

Monday Morning Music

I have to say that I really watch “Grey’s Anatomy” partially because they have amazing music. Here is a lovely song from Thursday’s episode. I love orchestral, atmospheric, piano driven pop music. I really can’t help myself. This song, “The Great Escape” is by Patrick Watson and up and coming Canadian singer/songwriter. This a perfect driving song and a really cool music video. Check it out and if you like it, it is available on itunes.

Brit Brit Goes Bald!

My lonliness is killing me and I…I must confesss I still believe, when your not with me I go insane I shave my head…Rehab baby one more time.

She actually looks kind of pretty with the shaved head but after watching this video the girl is really disturbed. Unless we want another Anna Nicole on our hands somebody needs to help this girl. I’m suprised she didn’t bring her babies to the tattoo parlor.


Rehab #2 Featuring Lindsay Lohan


Lindsay Lohan has checked out of the Wonderland treatment center she has called home for the past month. She is still going to be participating in outpatient therapy but now she is free to whore herself around at various Hollywood hotspots.

She is also now free to devote her full time to her movie “I Know Who Killed Me.” I guess its something about a girl with a dual personality. Didn’t she already play that part in “Freaky Friday?” Honestly my favorite Lindsay Lohan movie is “Mean Girls.”

I’m glad she did her 30 days inside rehab, even though if it was a bit rocky due to her need to be seen by the paparazzi shopping, goes out to clubs, ect…

Lets hope that she stays clean and sober!

Rehab is For Quitters

So the inevitable has happened…Britney Spears checked herself into rehab. Don’t get too excited yet, however, because she also has checked out of rehab. According to TMZ this rehab facility was out of the country. I was wondering where Britney had been for the past 2 days…I almost started to worry.

Evidently she is on her way back to LA. Sigh. I really hoped that she would disappear for a while and stage her big comeback. I need a new CD to work out to and Fergie isn’t cutting it. I really hope that Britney gets some help soon because her antics have gone from “breaking out of her shell” to “going buckwild insane” in the past few weeks.

Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton look really responsible in comparison. That is sad.
