Okay, okay. She was formally charged with being a car-wreck, but still.
Remember back in early August, when Britney ran into a parked car in the Valley, and then walked away without leaving so much as a note? Remember how the paparazzi got it all on tape?
Well, here in America, we call that a hit and run, and it’s illegal. And apparently Britney didn’t have a valid CA license when she did it, either. So now Ms. Spears has been charged with one count of hit and run causing property damage and one count of driving without a valid California license. Both charges are misdemeanors, each carrying a maximum of 6 months in jail.
The victim filed a police report about the incident three days after it occurred — after learning about it from an Australian reporter who showed up at her door.
Just in case there’s anyone in this country who hasn’t seen Kim Kardashian naked yet, she’s doing Playboy. [Derek Hail]
You know what? Mariah Carey looks awesome. [popbytes]
Hey, shouldn’t “butt fingering” be hyphenated here? [Bossip]
Oh. Hell. Yes. Maureen McCormick’s writing a tell-all about her years on The Brady Bunch. And it apparently involves a lesbian love affair with Eve Plumb. This was totally worth a 30-year wait. [Agent Bedhead]
Jesus Christ, I’m going to have to start watching Gossip Girl, aren’t I? [Pajiba]
Katharine McPhee just keeps scoring movie deals. [GTS]
Oh my God. Zach Morris, what the fuck happened? [Holy Candy]
Hayden Panettiere’s either filming Heroes or auditioning for The Next Next Karate Kid. [The Blemish]
From the mailbag: “A casting call went out (about a month ago) for the ‘Sex and the City’ movie. They wanted two redheaded kids: a boy and his younger sister. So Miranda = full-on Brooklyn breeder now.” Oh, right, spoiler alert.
This makes Britney Spears’ VMA performance look really crisp and professional. I mean, you have to hand it to Britney: she may be all liquor and cocaine, but at least she’s managed not to hit the stage after snorting heroin.
BOOTYLICIOUS Kim Kardashian has a new man. The beauty has been out on the town with hunky actor Terrence Howard, who is separated from his wife of 14 years. A spy spotted the star of the new E! reality show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” arriving and “making out” with Howard at Tenjune and then Butter last week. “They were all over each other,” snitched the onlooker. “She was sitting on his lap and he was rubbing her butt.” A rep for Howard declined to comment.
Separated from his wife of 14 years? Someone’s taking moves straight outta the Paris Hilton playbook.
BTW, Terrence Howard plays the male lead in the new Jodie Foster film, The Brave One, which I saw last night and found to be terribly disappointing. It just didn’t work on so many levels, which is sad, because I was really excited for it. Oh well. Anyone else see it and feel differently?
