Enjoying Mardi Gras festivities yesterday at home in New Orleans. Funny how the rags claim she’s starving and dying and shooting up – don’t know about you but this looks about as far from Britney as it gets. As for this weekend at the Oscars, though it seems unlikely they’ll attend, I received a fresh tip - not slamdunk gossip, still working on confirmation - that Laura Ziskin, who’s always had a decent relationship with Brad has called a few times gently asking about presenter duties. Full Story

Entertainment Tonight is reporting she left Promises this morning. It is not known however if she has chosen a more private facility, given that the international press is already aware of where she is. Makes sense to me. As for the possibility of her bailing for a fix… obviously possible. She’s a junkie after all. Full Story

As I mentioned earlier, everyone is talking now, sharing insider information on how out of control she was before finally going to Promises. There are reports that her breakdown was not only rootedin her disappointment over the breakdown of her marriage to that loser f&ck but also her struggle through years of family turmoil exacerbated by her aunt’s death a few weeks ago. Full Story

She exploits herself and she is exploited by everyone around her. Sigh. Sadness. Britney supposedly felt betrayed by all the men in her life: KFed, Justin, Isaac Cohen. Add to that list a long line of employees now coming forward to capitalise on her troubles. A former “potential” nanny has spoken and Us Weekly, of course, has all the details. Full Story

Dear Gossips, Lurid details of Britney’s disturbing weekend continue to pour in - sounds like her mother might be cutting her off in a desperate and dramatic attempt to force her hand. More below. On to something more cheerful, shall we? Oscars are only 5 days away. An exclusive new prize pack to be announced later today, stay tuned… Meanwhile, Tobey Maguire and Anne Hathaway have been added to the presenter slate joining an already star-studded list that includes: Clooney, Cam, Hanks, Reese, Bond, Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Ben Affleck, and the Gay Midget Dwarf. Needless to say, this does not include the nominees. Hopefully it’ll be a carpet to die for. Sunday night – get your ballots ready. Tuesday is media day, will be in and out so blogging on the fly, check back often for fresh posts. If you’re in Vancouver, tune in to Urban Rush – I’ll be joining Mike and Fiona today for Academy Award dish. Yours in gossip, Lainey PS. To Teresa O and Marco D of Mackenzie Financial – a little late but my congratulations nonetheless on the promotion! PPS. The Wrong Gender is not Jennifer Aniston. Jennifer Aniston can’t afford anything but hetero. This girl on the other hand has already disappointed the MiniVan Majority before, though I’m still not clear who she was exactly at the time. There are, apparently, several of her.

The Irresistible Drew Barrymore at the Much Love Animal Rescue at the weekend. Not sure if that"s Flossy, her pup that famously saved her from fire during the Tom Green days, but he/she"s a cutie, non? Many of you have been writing lately to express love for Drew. I totally agree. I do not agree however at some of your assertions that she should end up with Hugh Grant. Full Story

Seems like every young starlet these days is wearing the Dark Side like a new accessory. Anne Hathaway is the latest - says she"s been depressed, had to explore the Darkness, it made her more complete. Mandy Moore said the same thing a few weeks ago. The Darkness ate her too. And of course we all know about Lilo and the Olsens and the entire gaggle of child stars populating Hollywood - all no longer content to smile and look pretty and cuddle with their teddy bears. Full Story

My Gwyneth is going to the Oscars! My Gwyneth! And Jennifer Lopez too! Two Ben Affleck exes on the same carpet at the time... Awkward. Love.It. Also an abundance of ex GMD beards too. Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, the RoboBride on his arm...makes for some interesting PR maneuvering to avoid a collision, or perhaps Nicole and Keith will go in for the killer photo opp and pose together? Love. Full Story

There"s a movie I love called Married to the Mob - totally lite Sunday afternoon enjoyment but some of the performances are absolute gold. Like Mercedes Ruehl as the pyschotic possessive mafia wife, kills me every time I watch. So anyway, for many reasons, including Dangerous Liaisons and even Dangerous Minds, and for the quiet way she"s lived her life for the last decade, prioritising children over Hollywood, I adore Michelle Pfeiffer. Full Story
