Britney Spears to remain under conservatorship; No divorce for Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt

By Liz Kelly

Britney Spears in 2009. (AP)
Friday

It's Britney's Sitch: Britney Spears, despite being of sound enough mind to make a splashy "Glee" guest appearance, is apparently not ready to handle her own finances. At a Thursday hearing, a judge ruled that Spears's financial affairs will remain in her dad's control indefinitely. Although judge Reva Goetz agreed that Spears seemed to be in good health, she remained "susceptible to undue influence." [BBC News]

Celebrity Beat: After 13 years, Heidi Klum breaks up with Victoria's Secret... Heidi Montag/Spencer Pratt divorce proceedings dismissed... Alec Baldwin wants to see Blake Lively naked... Leave it to Gilbert Gottfried to make the first tasteless joke about Greg Giraldo's death... Whoopi Goldberg defends pal Mel Gibson... Katie Holmes wears the least attractive dress ever... Bacon Kevin Bacon (no, it's not edible).

Rumor Mill: Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Seacrest feuding on "Idol" set?... Mel and Robyn Gibson close to divorce settlement... Oksana Grigorieva wants to sing, play piano for Oprah.

Comments

"After 13 years, Heidi Klum breaks up with Victoria's Secret" -- It's very amicable. Heidi gets the top half of the inventory and Victoria gets the bottom.

"Whoopi Goldberg defends pal Mel Gibson" -- Mel's agent was going through lists of Oscar winners trying to find a member of Hollywood royalty to stand behind him, and Marisa Tomei and Cuba Gooding, Jr. were just too busy.

"Katie Holmes wears the least attractive dress ever" -- Proving even country-style window valences can be repurposed.

"Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Seacrest feuding on 'Idol' set" -- Why? Some theories:

1) She accused him of sneaking into her dressing room and trying on her wardrobe and he said "No, I didn't -- and besides, your pants have so much room in the seat I could swim in there."

2) Due to budget cuts they have to share one teeth bleaching kit and she keeps stealing it between takes.

3) Everytime Ryan has to say her name, he gets the "Gigli"s and can only manage, "Fly Girl" instead.

4) She keeps calling him RSea and he said he is NO ONE's Royal Crown Cola. Anyway, his friends call him Ryan from the Block.

5) Planned AI "Selena Night" keeps getting sidetracked by Ryan's desire to do the entire show in Spanish and JLo complains his syntax is HORRIBLE.

6) Ryan said the last time one of her hits was on "American Top 40" Kasey Kasem was doing the voice for Scooby Doo.

7) When they met, Ryan told her how much he enjoyed her dancing on "In Living Colour" when he was a kid.

It's nice to see that Heincer will get another chance to make a go of their pathetic sham of a marriage. Good luck, kids.


Gilbert Gottfried wouldn't tweet anything about Greg Giraldo that he wouldn't say to his face. Not that he'd get a reaction that way, either...


"Katie Holmes wears the least attractive dress ever." It's the only way she could get Tom to say something along the lines of, "I'd really like to see you out of that dress."


"Bacon Kevin Bacon (no, it's not edible)." There's 'bacon' in the name TWICE and it's not edible? How f****** repulsive must the part in the middle BE?


"Oksana Grigorieva wants to sing, play piano for Oprah." ...and there ain't enough bacon on the planet to make that palatable.

Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Seacrest feud theory #8:

He said she was "too big for her britches." She said, "I don't act like that." He said, "I wasn't talking about the acting."

Oksana will sing and play the piano for Oprah. NOW we know what preceded Mel Gibson's rants.

I am amazed at how two talentless hacks keep finding ways to get their names in the news. And Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag managed to do it too.

Aaaaaaaaaaaah. I just found out that a friend from law school who has been working in Sudan gets to brief George Clooney today on the upcoming referendum. I am so jealous.

Thanks for bringing the old format back. It was missed!

Good Morning Ladies,

Happy Friday! Thanks for bringing back the old format. For the first time in over a week I can follow what's going on.

Perhaps the Kevin Bacon bacon bits head can be cremated with Greg Gerald so that the Greg can have some bacon bits to go over his roast.

I wonder if Oprah wants to see Oksana Grigorieva naked, playing the piano and singing.

Alec Baldwin has obviously let testosterone cloud his thinking. How could PETA use someone with the last name of Lively in a "Fur is Dead" campaign?

Question to Gilbert Gottfried: If Blake Lively were cremated, would she be a roast or a fur burger?

The judge dismissed Heincer when he should have sent them to detention.

And if you folks think that Katie Holmes dress is "interesting," you obviously did not scroll down the page to look at this:

Katie Holmes dress is astonishingly awful. And she is beautiful in it too. It's like they photoshopped her head onto the top one of my album photos from the 1987 Fall Formal.

epjd, can't you get in on your creds as Lizard Island General Counsel? Work that celebritology edge.

Liz, were you going to nix the Mix? Or was that just a one-day thing? I hope not, because I love it so. And truthfully, I just can't bring myself to read through all the comments on the others. So, as a reader/user, I love that wealth of fresh content, but I like to have one place that is a main landing pad for our little bloggy community. The Morning Mix has always fit that bill. You didn't ask, but there's my 2 cents about it.

I'm happy when you're happy. Happy Friday!

Thanks for bringing back the Morning Mix. I've felt its absence in the past week with the notable drop in Speidi coverage.

As bad as Katie Holmes' dress is - and it looks like the bedspread from a Holiday Inn, circa 1988 - it's better than Eva Mendes' dress. Are those the *actual* curtains from the Knicks front office? I did hear they redecorated this summer.

Britney Spears: not a girl, (still) not yet a functioning adult. Sad.

I'd rather de-brief him.

Turns out Seabiscuit is only 5 years younger than JLo, so unless he was a late bloomer he was no "kid" any more back then.


Mel and Robyn Gibson close to divorce settlement.

Speaking, as we were on yesterday afternoon's online chat, of wives who have conducted themselves with dignity during undignified divorces.


Katie Holmes wears the least attractive dress ever.

Preamble: I actually like print clothing from time to time, because solid colors can get boring after a while. That said, why would someone wear a dress from a luggage and purse maker? And doesn't Katie have a professional stylist to protect her from her worst instincts?

Whoopi Goldberg defends pal Mel Gibson..

"I can't defend someone who got angry like that," Goldberg said

Huh?

Not only is Katie's dress really ugly, it looks like it coming apart at the hem.

Thanks, Liz for bringing back the Morning Mix. All the best snark in one place.

Thanks too, for the link in yesterday's chat about your summer "vacation." Kudos to Mr. Liz for recognizing your problem and making sure you got the help you needed.

TD, there is a simple explantion for this. Ryan speaks the Castilian dialect and JLo speaks (of course) the Bronx dialect.

"Katie Holmes wears the least attractive dress ever" -- Proving even country-style window valences can be repurposed.

Valences? No, maybe a dust ruffle or a mattress pad liner

SPLOOT! Now I'm picturing Carol Burnett's green velvet drapery-dress in her parody of GWTW.
