Pathetic: Britney's "Pregnancy Test" Auctioned Online

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

OTTAWA, Canada – May 2 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — When pop-star icon Britney Spears recently confirmed her much-rumored pregnancy, it was inevitable that controversial media attention would soon follow. Now her alleged pregnancy test has been sold by a Canadian radio station to none other than GoldenPalace.com, the Internet casino most famous for their outrageous eBay purchases over the last few months.

Ottawa’s #1 Hit Music Station, The New Hot 89.9, scored the pregnancy test through a connection they have in the Los Angeles hotel where Britney and her husband Kevin Federline were staying a couple of months ago. The positive test was found in the trash can of the happy couple’s bathroom then sold to The Morning Hot Tub with Mauler, Rush, Laura & Josie. Although the station has had the test for a while now, they wanted to wait until the official announcement had been made by Mr. and Mrs. Spears.

Like many of the eccentric items the casino has bought, proceeds from this sale will go to charity. The two charities that will benefit are the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation which provides support to children with cancer and their families, and the Easter Seal Society which helps children with physical disabilities achieve their full individual potential and future independence.

“Although we love being in the headlines, we also jump at any opportunity to help out needy charities,” said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. “This way, everybody wins and the money goes where it is needed. We are very pleased that the Candlelighters Foundation and the Easter Seal Society will benefit from this sale.”

“It’s great that GoldenPalace.com took the pregnancy test off our hands,” said radio personality Jeff Mauler. “Not only are they helping out a couple of deserving charities, but they are also getting the pee out of our station. That’s always a good thing.”

What Has Britney Been Buying Lately?

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Paparazzi have been staking out a home in Paradise Valley. A very spoiled Chihuahua has been spotted at Hilton Village in Scottsdale. Britney Spears is in town, and she has been busy shopping, which means, of course, that it was my professional duty to see exactly what she bought. (The American celebrity obsession is a dangerous drug: I can’t dance like Britney Spears, but I can own the same candle.)

Everyone said she was so very nice, so totally showing, and so surprisingly scruffy in her omnipresent sweatpants, which meant she was rarely recognized until her assistant trotted out her credit card.

• She must be taking etiquette lessons, learning to wear shoes out in public and prepping to send thank-you notes. She bought stationery for eight, at the Willows’.

• Britney grabbed this Bella Mama Pregnant Belly Oil, $23 at Essentials and More, to rub all over her much-mimicked midriff.

• From Essentials and More, Britney picked up this Chester makeup case, $28.

• Brit’s got something in common with Oprah: a passion for gorgeously packaged Seda France candles, $28 at Essentials and More.

• Is it a boy? Everything Britney bought at the Willows’ was baby blue. (The shop staff says Britney told them it was a boy. Of course, at the time, they didn’t know whom they were asking.)

• Local designer Emily Austin just nabbed a famous new client. Spears bought one of Austin’s trademark Swarovski-crystal heart necklaces, $176 at the Willows’.

• Brit brought Bit Bit, her Chihuahua, to Mackie’s Parlour, a Pet Boutique, where she bought a Swarovski-crystal-trimmed dog vest, $66, and crown, $110. (Bit Bit also got a little doggie dress, which she left the store wearing.)

Jaimee Rose is officially offering Britney Spears her baby-shower party-planning services. She recently provided consulting services to a friend (there were petits fours on silver trays and even homemade gingham napkin rings fastened with twine and buttons). Brit, you can reach Jaimee at (602) 444-8923.

Rumour: Britney & Justin At Secret Meeting

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Star Magazine is claiming that Britney Spears’ relationship with her first love, Justin Timberlake, is not that innocent. According to the magazine, the pair recently had a secret rendezvous to discuss their problems with their current significant others. In March, they met at a Los Angeles hotel where Britney revealed her pregnancy. A source said, “Justin was totally blown away. He’d heard the rumors, but once he knew the truth, he was shocked.” Maybe the shock stemmed from the fact that many believe the couple has never gotten over each other. In fact, part of Justin’s revelation to Britney was that his mother does not like current girlfriend, Cameron Diaz. She was, however, always fond of Britney. Britney, on the other hand, likely told Justin of her worries about Kevin Federline’s abilities as a husband and father. Perhaps things have brightened up for Britney and Kevin over the last few weeks, though. Since announcing her pregnancy, they’ve been spotted looking quite cozy as they vacation in Florida and Arizona.

Remember that it’s STAR magazine which has printed this story…the same magazine which Britney bashed a month ago on her website. This is probably their way of getting back at her…

Rumour: Britney's Calorie-Laden Craving

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Britney Spears could be biting off more than she can chew with her latest food craving – Kendal Mint Cake.

The pregnant star has given up her normal diet of junk food but now apparently can’t get enough of the sweet treat.

The Cumbrian snack is normally reserved for keeping up the energy levels of mountaineers.

And as if the calorie-laden treat isn’t fattening enough, she’s covering it with peanut butter.

But with one miscarriage scare behind her, perhaps Britney just wants to keep her strength up.

Anyway, I was looking at the pics of the show and thought you might like to see them again too. If you didn’t see these pics.. you must see them – they’re probably the best ones taken during the whole tour!
