Britney Spears and Larry Rudolph Continue Their Ross/Rachel Romance

They’re on. They’re off. They’re on. She’s pregnant. Whatever.

Britney Spears and manager Larry Rudolph are back on. He’ll be managing her again.

You’ll recall, it was Larry who pushed to get Britney into rehab awhile back, and Britney spoke publicly about her hate for her, while father Jamie Spears rushed to his defense. I guess Jamie’s hired him again.

I think this is really good news for Britney. Things are back on track, baby!!!

Blind Item!

Which small-screen actress has been texting and fawning over and otherwise smothering her ’90s TV megastar boyfriend, just after her PR leaked the relationship to the press? At this rate, she might have to cast a new beau for next season.

We’re Going to Be Doing a Lot of This

Meet Dustin Milligan.

He’s the first cast-member from the 90210 remake to be officially revealed.

You’re going to be getting 90210 details up the wazoo until this thing airs.

More info:

Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, who penned the pilot, is bringing a whole new cast of characters to make Beverly Hills their playground.

Earlier, Thomas revealed that the pilot’s premise is about a former graduate of West Beverly who reluctantly returns from the Midwest, with his wife and two children, to become the next school’s principal. The principal’s mother is a former actress who is headed back to rehab.

Dustin will be playing an attractive, popular star athlete.

Charlie! Charlie! Charlie!

Charlie! Baby Shih-Tzu Puppy Dog Two Months Old Pictures, Photos

First: I would like to sincerely thank all of you who left me advice about puppy ownership on my first post about Charlie. I read all of the comments — more than once — and I genuinely appreciate the time some of you took to leave me thorough advice about raising and training Charlie. It’s been very useful.

Second: Yes. I am going to be one of those obnoxious people who blogs about their dog. Why? Because this is my blog and I am obsessed with this dog and I’ll blog about him if I see fit. If you don’t like it, skip that post.

In fact, I am rapidly becoming one of those obnoxious dog people in general. Charlie comes everywhere with me. I nearly had to reschedule my annual gynecologist appointment today because they wouldn’t let Charlie in the exam room. The secretary was like, “Um, Ma’am, you can’t take the dog in there with you.” And I was like “Why?” And she was like, “Look, it’s not that he’s not cute — he’s very cute — but we can’t allow dogs in the exam rooms.” And I was like, “Oh, he’s very well-behaved. He’ll be fine.” And she gives me this look that says, “Lady, they’re going to be putting metal objects inside your vagina in that room. Do you really want a fucking dog in there?” But instead she said “You can reschedule if you like.” And I thought about that, but then they won’t renew my birth control prescription and the guy I’m dating will have to wear a condom and his feelings about wearing condoms run somewhere parallel to my feelings about wearing nylons — I’ll do it if there’s a good reason, but I’m going to complain the whole damn time — so I agreed to leave Charlie outside.

They won’t let him in the grocery store, either. Something about health department regulations blah blah blah. The manager was basically like, “If he’s not a seeing-eye dog, he can’t come in.” Which gave me a brilliant idea. Once Charlie learns how to walk on a leash (we’re working on that), I’m going to get a pair of those ridiculous, huge dark eye-glasses that old blind people wear. Like the kind they give you when you get your eyes dilated. Then my little Shih-Tzu and I are going to waltz into the grocery store. And if the manager tries to say anything to me, I’m going to glance frantically around the room, like I’m trying to figure out what direction the voice is coming from, and be like, “Excuse me? I’m sorry, I’m not sure exactly where you are, but I rely on this dog to help me do the grocery shopping. I’ll starve to death if he can’t come in!” And we’ll see what the health department has to say about that.

Anyway.

Here’s more pics of Charlie.

And to celebrate these new photos, I’ve also included here the music video for *NSYNC’s “God Must Have Spent a Little More Time on You,” because that’s how I feel about little Charlie.

I am an obnoxious dog owner and I am loving it!

Take That, Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt already has his own production company. It’s called Plan B Productions. When it was originally founded, Jennifer Aniston was a partner. She split from the company after her marriage to Brad fell apart.

Now Jennifer has her own Plan B. I suppose Plan A was to be married, have a family, and live happily ever after. That didn’t work out so hot, so Jen just founded her own production company with friend Kristin Hahn. It’s called Echo Productions, and they’ve acquired the rights to the British bestseller Getting Rid of Matthew, among other projects.

Who needs a happy marriage or an Ethiopian baby when you can have your own production company?

Yay, women’s lib!

This Has to Be True Love

Okay: What is wrong with Rosie O’Donnell’s face?

Is this some sort of disease?

Or did she just break out with adult-onset freckles?

You have to truly love someone to stay with them when their face looks like that. Although I guess we could have said that about Rosie even before the weird freckle thing.

And check out her hands! Was she in a bar fight?

Anyway, here’s Rosie and wife Kelli at the Sherie Renee Scott benefit concert in NYC.
