Life Is Crazy These Days

I am so sorry for the lack of posts. I was hoping life would calm down some and I could focus on the blog more. Sadly, it has not. I am going to see my favorite college football team play this weekend and as a good wife I am trying to get everything ready to leave the hubby home for the first time without me since we married. We also have a dog who had his manhood removed about 2 weeks ago and he has been extra work with the cone thing he had to wear. (That gets removed while I am away.) So life is busy. I am also expecting company soon and holidays are fast approching.

As for the blogs future. I am hoping to get back into it hard core, but life seems to be making other plans. Please give me a week or so and check back to see if I have started posting again. I really hope you will not hate me for taking this break.

God Bless and thanks!

Lynne Spears Talks About Learning Of Jamie Lynn's Pregnancy At 16

In addition to discussing daughter Britney's disintegration, Lynne Spears also opened up on Wednesday's Today show about daughter Jamie Lynn getting pregnant at 16. Lynne recalled how she was planning to go out for lunch when Jamie Lynn called and told her to come home.

At home, Lynne found her daughter's boyfriend, Casey Aldridge, who avoided eye contact. Jamie Lynn then handed her mother a note and told her to go into her bedroom to read it. "It said she was pregnant and everything was going to be OK. She was going to raise it," Lynne told Meredith Vieira. "I thought it was a joke I was waiting for the punch line," Lynne added. "I was in shock. I think I was just truly in shock, and then I started to cry. And she started consoling me at that point."

Lynne -- who sold the story to OK! for $1 million -- added that she blamed herself for her children's personal dramas. "As a mother, don’t we always blame ourselves?" she said. "I took a lot of the blame. I took all the blame. The personality I have, it's always my fault."

Lynne told Al Roker in a later segment, "A mother is as happy as her most unhappy child. You kind of gravitate toward the one who needs you the most at that time ... It's a balancing act. Maybe I haven't done it as best as I could, but all I ever tell you is I tried." Referencing her book Through the Storm, Roker asked, "Are you through the storm?" "Oh, yes," Lynne said. "We’re through the storm and we're looking at the sunshine right now."

Could Harlow Madden have a little brother or sister soon? "If it happens, it happens," Nicole Richie told Extra Monday. She said she and Joel Madden are "just enjoying every day" raising eight-month-old daughter Harlow. "She is pulling herself up standing ... we don't have to burp her anymore," Nicole said. She's even beginning to form her first words. "She says 'mama' and 'dada,'" Joel said. "She says 'dada' when she wants to play. Wants to laugh. And 'mama' is everything else. When we walk into a place, she waves to everyone."

Nicole said she doesn't try to insulate Harlow from fame. "My priority is to make her unaware. She's eight months now. I can't put her in the infant seat and cover her. She'd definitely know something's going on ... she wants to experience life and, as a mother, that's important."

Nicole and Joel are also getting more involved in children's charity work. (The pair started the Richie-Madden Children's Foundation to help needy mothers last November.)
Their new initiative: Encouraging people to text "child" to 9-0999 ($5 will be donated to a children’s charity they sponsor). Being a parent, Joel said, "opens your eyes. Every child I look at reminds me of my child. And every mother I see reminds me of Nicole."

Brad And Angelina Start Charity In Zahara's Homeland Of Ethiopia

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have given $2 million to fund a children's health clinic in Ethiopia, where their 3-year-old daughter Zahara was born. The center, which will focus on serving children with tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS, will be run by the Global Health Committee. "It is our hope when Zahara is older she will take responsibility of the clinic and continue its mission," Brad said in a statement.

The Jolie-Pitts run a similar clinic in Cambodia - where their 7-year-old son Maddox was born - called Maddox Chivan Children's Center. "Our goal is to transfer the success we have had in Cambodia to Ethiopia where people are needlessly dying of tuberculosis, a curable disease, and HIV/AIDS, a treatable disease," Angelina said in a statement.


"The fact that poor people continue to die in our world today of TB, a curable disease, because of lack of access to drugs and care is unacceptable," Brad added. This week, the power couple ranked sixth on Parade magazine's list of the most generous celebrities. They gave $8.4 million in 2007.

Britney's New Album Titled Circus To Be Released On December 2

Britney Spears has arranged a wonderful birthday present for herself: her sixth studio album, Circus, due for release December 2 – the day she turns 27, her label announced Monday. Coming so soon after her triple victory – for video of the year, best female video and best pop video for "Piece of Me" – at MTV's Video Music Awards on Sept. 7, Circus follows up her well-received 2007 album Blackout and continues the upward spiral the sometimes-troubled pop star has been experiencing.

The Outsyders, described by Britney's label, Jive records, as an up-and-coming Atlanta production team, have produced the first single from the album, "Womanizer," which will drop Sept. 22. Other producers and writers with a hand in the album, according to Jive, include Dr. Luke (writer-producer of the title track, "Circus"), Danja, Max Martin, Bloodshy & Avant and Guy Sigsworth – who's collaborated with such other artists as Madonna, Alanis Morissette and Bjork.

In all, Britney has sold more than 62 million albums internationally, including 1999's Baby One More Time, 2000's Oops! … I Did It Again, 2001' Britney, 2003's In The Zone and the previously mentioned Blackout. Her sales records include eight No. 1 worldwide singles and four consecutive No. 1 albums. Also on Monday, Guinness World Records revealed another accolade for Britney: she has replaced Paris Hilton as the Most Searched Person on the Internet in 2007.

90210 Gets Juicy This Week With A Big Reveal
















The father of Kelly Taylor’s 4-year-old son Sammy will finally be revealed on Tuesday’s episode of 90210, PEOPLE has learned. And Brenda Walsh will be the one spilling the beans! Brenda (Shannen Doherty) and Kelly (Jennie Garth) will be having a serious conversation about Sammy’s dad when Brenda reveals his name. In another twist, the show’s executive producer Gabe Sachs told PEOPLE that there’s a “possibility” the baby’s father could appear on a future episode. Who it could be?

So far, Kelly has mentioned she knew him in high school and they have history together. The couple went their separate ways, but hooked up four years ago. Since then, he’s been out of the picture. In the series premiere, Kelly took a 3 a.m. phone call from Brandon who is now living in Belize. Their late-night talk was interrupted when Sammy walked in. Perhaps another clue?

Sachs and fellow executive producer Jeff Judah already know who they wanted to be the father, and also discussed it with Jennie. He said Shannen and Jennie were great about the news and had a lot of fun. “The two of them love being in on secrets,” he said. Fans will be in on the secret when it’s revealed Sept. 16, 8 p.m. ET on the CW.

Britney And Family Celebrate Sean Preston And Jayden's Birthdays
















Britney Spears revved up the celebration for sons Sean Preston and Jayden James on Saturday, throwing her sons a joint car and truck-themed birthday bash in Los Angeles. And the party was truly a family affair. Britney celebrated her boys' special days – Preston turns 3 on Sept. 14, and Jayden turned 2 on Sept. 12 – with sister Jamie Lynn Spears, her newborn niece Maddie Briann, dad Jamie and mom Lynne.

Held at close friend Adrienne Maloof-Nassif's Beverly Park house, the outdoor party drew some famous guests, including Jenny McCarthy with her son Evan, and Gwen Stefani's son Kingston, 2, who came to the bash from an equally starry affair: He celebrated Heidi Klum's son Henry's 3rd birthday at the model's Beverly Hills house along with all three of Victoria Beckham's sons.

But the guests of honor seemed to be having the best time. Preston and Jayden drove around the party in mini motorized cars, which were customized Ed Hardy by Christian Audigier. The cars featured tattoo-inspired decals, Ed Hardy air fresheners and personalized license plates. To keep with the party's theme, the cake was in shape of a yellow truck. "The boys received tons of birthday gifts," a source told PEOPLE. "Britney and her family really made the party special for the boys."
