How nice of Britney Spears to let Lydia Hearst borrow one of her costumes from her Circus tour to rock it out in NYC last night! The Hearst heiress jumped on the first warm night of the year and sported this short metallic dress emblazoned with stars to the Nylon magazine 10th Anniversary party at the Thompson LES. She paired with a pair of heavy black platforms, and Lydia’s slender stems popped out from the itzy bitzy skirt while her curves held up ths strapless creation. Work it out!

Nick Cannon threw his wifey of almost one year, Mariah Carey, a luxurious 40th birthday party in Barbados. No expense was spared for Mariah and her guests, who attended an 11 person dinner party at Wispers on the Bay Friday night, where they downed Dom Perignon and noshed on salmon, sauteed asparagus, lemon rice, lamb, and angus beef.
“Because she’s been working extremely hard for the past few months recording new music for the album, it was impotant to Nick that the trip be a relaxing one, where Mariah and her friends could truly enjoy themselves,” a pal said.
In addition to celebrating her 40th birthday in Barbados, Mariah was spotted showing off her bikini body while frolicking with Nick in the water. [Source: People; Photo: Getty Images]
There’s something about certain Hollywood relationships that is so blahhhh. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony? Kinda yawn. Definitely no spark like when Lopez was half of Bennifer. And what does it say about New Bennifer, Ben Affleck and Jen Garner, that Violet Affleck is more entertaining than either of them?
But maybe the most boring relationship of all is Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban. After her A-list marriage and divorce from Tom Cruise, we all knew that Nic dealt with some major heartache, and we’re happy that she’s found love with Urban, but they just seem weird together, it’s a relationship that seemed to come out of nowhere. Urban recently told Ellen DeGeneres that the reason the couple named their 9-month-old daughter Sunday is because he always felt that, “Particularly when you don’t have someone in your life … in my experience, Sunday was the loneliest day.” Grrreat?
He clarified by saying, “It went from being sort of the most dreaded day of the week for us to being the most joyous day, because we just had a family.” We can appreciate that these guys are a bit more under the radar than they used to be and probably covet their privacy, but stories about naming your kid after your own loneliness is something we’d expect from Morrissey, maybe, but not Keith Urban.

Peaches Geldof has been a little quiet of late getting divorced and hanging out at Bungalow 8 in London, but she makes up for it in an interview with Grazia magazine, where we actually start to like her a little bit. (Yikes.) How can you fail to warm to a 20 year old who defends Madonna‘s choice of 22-year-old Jesus Luz by saying the Material Girl just fancied some “hot, young c*ck”? Or admits she fancies ranty chef Gordon Ramsay because of his “intense lines” and thinks she may have a chance because “he’s meant to be an adulterer, so who knows?” And who finally admits she hasn’t really done anything by saying, “I hope that one day I will do something that my family can all be proud of.” You’ve still got time, Peaches – just stop marrying boys in bands with stupid hair and launching pretentious magazines. That’ll be a start. [Photo: Splash News Online]

She’s already reportedly turned down advice from Jessica Simpson, but will Rihanna listen to her new friend Katy Perry? Apparently the two have recently become “inseparable” friends and have been out together on girlie nights. (When? Where? Hmmm.)
“Katy was there when Rihanna needed her the most and as terrible as the stuff with Chris is, at least one good thing has come of it,” it’s reported. Although we’ve seen little evidence (so far) of this friendship and Rihanna’s still behaving in a confusing manner after the Chris Brown scandal, surely someone as feisty and strong as La Perry can only be a good addition to the camp?

Notorious animal abuser Michael Vick has been out of the public eye for a while now, seeing as jail has him pretty occupied. But the former star quarterback, who is eligible for release on July 20th, is eager to get back into the game, according to his bankruptcy plan currently being reviewed by a judge.
He’s apparently reached a deal to be released by the Falcons by paying them $6.5 or $7.5 million for a “contract-breach grievance,” and according to papers filed in court, plans on repaying creditors by earning $10 million annually. That is – if he’s permitted back into the NFL. Vick was suspended back in 2007 after he plead guilty to felony charges stemming from dog fighting.
Earlier this month his attorney said that Vick, “has every reason to believe upon his release, he will be reinstated into the NFL, resume his career and be able to earn a substantial living.”
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had this to say (and he ultimately determines Vick’s fate) : “I think it’s clear he’s paid a price, but to a large extent he’s going to have to demonstrate to the larger community — not just to the NFL community and to me — that he has remorse for what he did and that he recognizes mistakes that he made.” [Photo: WireImage]
Finally, an explanation as to how Lindsay Lohan‘s been driving a $115,000 Maserati while making close to minimum wage selling spray tan. The starlet was hooked up by a slummy porn producer, Dennis DeSantis, and he’s apparently not even upset that she already knocked up the ride with $10,000 worth of damage.
Dennis is responsible for such cinema classics as Butt Sluts and Origami So Horny, while Linds hasn’t appeared in a film in over two years. Do ya think they’ve arranged some sort of trade, or is Lindsay just hanging out with people who eclipse her on the shady scale (a feat we once deemed impossible)? [Photo: Splash News Online]
Osbournes Reloaded comes to us courtesy of Fox, the network who brought us The Moment of Truth, Hell’s Kitchen, and Family Guy. The network isn’t really known for child-friendly programming, let’s face it, but from the previews we’ve seen, the Osbournes aren’t doing anything all that offensive. Stupid, maybe, but nothing that would make us earmuff the children. From what we gather it’s just Ozzy Osbourne and crew doing their same schtick as always, with a dumber title. (“They’re back and…they’re reloaded.” Blech.)
For some reason, though, the Osbourne clan gets the ire of one Fox affiliate who thinks they should go back to England. Panama City, Florida affiliate WPGX has decided not to air Osbournes Reloaded, which premieres tonight after American Idol. General Manager of the station David Cavileer says the show doesn’t reflect the “community standards.” Instead, the station will air an episode of The Simpsons in the show’s place. Cavileer said that he would have no problem airing the show after 10pm, but he doesn’t think airing it earlier would be appropriate for families. A Fox rep also issued a statement saying, “Osbournes Reloaded was thoroughly vetted by our standards and practices department to ensure it was appropriate for broadcast during the scheduled time period. If any network affiliate feels the programming may be inappropriate for its individual market, however, it has the right to pre-empt the program.”
Just to make sure we’re not crazy, we have to ask: dear families of Panama City, you know how to work the remote control, right? If you don’t think the show is appropriate for your kids, do you know you’re allowed to change the channel? We weren’t sure if there was a law in Panama City that forced you to watch Fox 24-7.
