Lifetime Sheds Light on Binge-drinking Party Girls

Sara Paxton, The Party Never Stops: Diary of a Binge Drinker

While real college freshmen labor to fit in and go with the flow, Sara Paxton is just pretending to struggle with classes, hangovers and peer pressure in The Party Never Stops: Diary of a Binge Drinker (premiering tonight at 9 pm/ET, on Lifetime). The 18-year-old star of Aquamarine didn't have to stretch her acting too far from her own self, knowing what it's like to feel clueless about the fatal dangers of drinking. Researching the statistics only made her want to spread the devastating facts even more. Paxton spoke with about the challenge she wanted to face with this role, the Hollywood club scene and talented celebrities who party too much. What made you decide to do this Lifetime movie?Sara Paxton: I th read more

Britney Exits Rehab, But K-Fed Won't "Reward" Her with Custody of Kids

Britney Spears has left rehab after a month-long stint — a 29-day improvement over her previous personal best, sure, but shy of the typical 45-day stay at her facility of choice. "[Britney] has been released by the Promises Malibu Treatment Center after successfully completing their program," her manager tells People in a statement. He has also asked that the press now respect her privacy. Spears voluntarily entered Promises — which tags you $48,000 for a month's stay — on Feb. 20, after a weekend romp capped by her shaving of her own purty melon. UPDATE: A source close to Kevin Federline tells TV's Extra that Brit's estranged husband and his attorney "are not about to return the kids [Sean Preston and Jayden James] as a reward for completing rehab. Kevin has had full custody for six weeks prior to her rehab... and will continue to have custody. [Spears] will have increased custody as long as she demonstrates she's living life with the best interests of her children." read more

P.I., Spy: The Andy Richter and Conan O'Brien Q&A

Andy Richter and Conan O'Brien

In an unbridled side-by-side Q&A, Andy Barker, P.I. star Andy Richter and series cocreator Conan O'Brien riff on their new NBC sitcom (premiering tonight at 9:30 pm/ET), Britney Spears jokes and the future of Late Night. TV Guide: In Andy Barker, P.I., Andy plays an accountant who acciden­tally becomes a detective. As your company developed it with NBC, Conan, how did you keep it so funny?Conan O'Brien: We really like it, which is usually a bad sign. One of the things that was nice about this project is that I've always thought it's such a crapshoot to make a good television show. So many read more

Music Vid Musings: Of Shakironcé, 3Xtina and ScarJo

It's no secret to anyone now that my exposure to contemporary music is limited to VH1's Jump Start and Top 20 Countdown, which I watch at the gym on weekend morns. That established, my attention was turned this past Saturday to a pair of vids that had me seeing double, if not triple — not that I'm at all complaining, given the content.First up, there was "Beautiful Liar," featuring what I consider to be the unlikely duet of Beyoncé (whose voice, frankly, I would not recognize in any other crowd of two) and Shakira. But as unexpected of collaborators as they are, the video's concept demonstrated what a fitting pairing they are, at least visually. Starting off in similar yet decidedly different outfits, each occupying their own spaces while crooning the tune, the ladies gradually start looking more and more like each other — Shakira finds a flat iron, Beyoncé bares her belly — until ultimately and rather astonishingly, the two are veritable doppelgangers for e... read more

Damien Fahey Invites Fans to Share the TRL Stage

TRL host Damien Fahey

Most of us remember when MTV was all about the music, the days when superstars didn't visit Sweet 16 parties, interns didn't live large in The Hills — or at least we didn't watch them doing that — and Laguna Beach surfers were just no-name wave riders. But times they are a-changin', and now even viewers get to take the mic and interview their favorites by entering in the MyTRL contest, where winners will get to host MTV's famous music-video request show. asked experienced TRL host Damien Fahey why kids are getting this chance, where he wants his career to go and who's on his int read more

Shocking Video Threatens "Big Trouble" for Brit

Britney Spears' wrongs continue, even as she tries to right herself in rehab. Not only are pics of the popstress' bare behind — taken Feb. 12 at New York's One club, as she and two dancers impulsively changed into bikinis — being auctioned off for upwards of $150,000, but corresponding security-camera footage of the gals allegedly shows them engaging in behavior so eyebrow-raising, it supposedly got Brit's pals fired from their jobs at the hotspot. While a rep for One denies to the New York Daily News that any such security camera exists nor were its dancers dismissed, a source tells the paper that if the video reaches the Internet, "There's going to be big trouble. It might be what they need to take [Spears'] kids away from her." read more

Random Thoughts, Featuring No Eddie Murphy Quotes

At the risk of evoking the great Larry King....• Now that the Oscars have come and gone, can I call for a moratorium on Eddie Murphy write-arounds? (A "write-around" is a feature offering not a single new quote from its very subject, but rather dusty, regurgitated sound bites and interviews with friends and friends-of-friends.) Entertainment Weekly offered a spectacular write-around at Globes time, but every single other one came across as inane filler.• Similarly, how about a cease-and-desist on running "goofy" Anna Nicole Smith headshots alongside serious updates on her death and baby girl's uncertain future? Good pics exist, so why are certain oulets avoiding them and instead going for giggles?• Speaking of Anna Nicole, what a sweeps it turned out to be for the network newscasts. Add in Britney's theater of the bizarre and a few Nor'easters and voila! Juicy headlines and promotional come-ons.• ABC's pre-Oscars red carpet special was, in a word, terrific. Not o... read more

Manager: Britney Is Not on Suicide Watch

As Britney Spears (presumably) breaks a personal record with her current rehab stay, which is now going on 30 hours, photos have surfaced in the New York Daily News (the one on the paper's cover can be found here) showing the skinheaded siren assaulting an empty car parked outside K-Fed's apartment with an umbrella — and not one of those wimpy Totes minis, either. The bizarre stop on Spears' train wreck was caught by paparazzi Wednesday evening, shortly after Federline had threatened his estranged (and growing estranger... ) wife with an emergency custody hearing concerning their two sons, whom she lovingly calls "Sean something" and "the littler one."UPDATE: In a statement to Extra, Spears' manager deems stories that his client is on suicide watch "absolutely untrue. She is in rehab, and it is very disappointing that various media outlets are running these false stories about her, as Britney tries to get better." As for speculation on who will get the first sit-down with Spear... read more

Mom Returns Britney to Rehab, Court Date Canceled

OK, maybe he isn't the worst dad ever after all. Today in L.A., Kevin Federline will be at an emergency court hearing that was called by him. The Associated Press was not able to learn why his attorneys requested the session, but c'mon, I think we all know. In related news, Us reports that since her last flight from rehab, Mrs. Federline hasn't gone near the kids. "She knows she is not well and she does not want to scare [older son] Preston," a source tells the mag. "She has no credit cards or cash. She is basically on the run at the moment." On the run with no credit cards? That won't get her far, especially since she's so frequently barefoot (never mind pregnant). Hope her cell battery still has enough juice to get a call in to Paris....UPDATE: With the two spied arguing and Brit at times curled up in a ball in the passenger seat, Lynne Spears drove her troubled daughter back to the Promises rehab center late Wednesday night. K-Fed's emergency custody hearing has since been cancel... read more
