When asked by talk show host Chelsea Handler earlier this month if Khloe is pregnant yet, Odom responded, "Soon." And when Handler pushed and asked, "You planning on having a baby soon? You want to do that right away?" Odom responded, "I do."

A source tells PEOPLE, "Khloe's beyond loving married life. She loves Lamar, she loves her life, she loves just being with Lamar, and she can't wait to move into a huge house."

The home purchase was first reported by TMZ.

Carrie Underwood: I'm Not Moving In With Mike Fisher

After nearly one year of dating, Carrie Underwood says she has no plans to move in with hockey player Mike Fisher.

OK! magazine recently quoted a pal as saying that the country crooner, 26, "did clear out space in his closet and stocked his kitchen with her favorites!"

But on her official fan club site, Underwood writes: "I read something recently that a certain someone and I were moving in together. This is beyond not true...just another example of people making stuff up out of thin air!"

She goes on to say that "neither one of us would ever do that. I would never live with my boyfriend...not my style."

Still, things are getting serious.

She praises Fisher, 29, on the liner notes of her new album, Play On.

"Thank you #12," she writes, referring to the Ottawa Senator player's jersey number. "You are the most amazing addition to my life! You are such a wonderful person and have had such an amazing hand in the building of this album and in the growth of me as a person. I love you so much! You make my life better in every way! I thank God for you every day... xoxo, Carrie."

'Jon and Kate' Replaced by 'Cake Boss'

"Cake Boss" is officially replacing "Jon & Kate Plus 8," TLC has announced.

It begins airing in the reality family's Monday-night timeslot on Nov. 30.

The series finale of "Jon & Kate" will air Nov. 23. It will feature Jon and Kate sitting down "to provide new insights on their recent life events" and the future of their eight children, according to the New York Post.

TLC is developing another show for Kate, the paper reports, and Jon was recently in talks with Michael Lohan to appear in a reality series called, "The Divorced Dads Club."

Eddie Cibrian to Sue Life and Style

A rep for "CSI: Miami" star Eddie Cibrian tells "Extra" Life & Style Magazine has crossed the line by claiming he's cheating on LeAnn Rimes -- and he's going to take them to court.

Cibrian's rep tells "Extra" in a statement: "Unfortunately Life & Style Magazine has chosen to go out with a story filled with inaccuracies and deceitful lies, presumably to titillate sales, but clearly resulting in harm to Eddie Cibrian and others. This is irresponsible and wreckless journalism. Eddie has met with his attorneys and will be filing a suit for libel and other actionable grounds shortly. It's a shame that Life & Style resorted to a story of this nature and they will regretfully now have to face scrutiny of untruthful reporting in a court proceeding."

On Thursday, the magazine reported Cibrian recently started "seeing" an ex-girlfriend. Life & Style claimed Cibrian was bragging about hooking up with a "different" girl while shooting "CSI: Miami" in Florida, but the CBS series tapes in Manhattan Beach, Calif.

Kevin Federline's girlfriend, Victoria Prince, may be pregnant

Kevin Federline’s girlfriend may soon be sporting a baby bump to match the former rapper’s buzzed about Buddha belly.'

Pro-volleyball Victoria Prince is reportedly several weeks pregnant with what will be Federline’s fifth child, The National Enquirer has learned.

Last summer, Victoria quit working to accompany Kevin around the globe. After one pregnancy false alarm earlier this year, the athlete begin to suspect that she was pregnant after the couple spent two weeks in Las Vegas in late September.

Kevin — who will be whipping himself into shape on the new season of VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club – already has four children; daughter Kori, 7, and son Kaleb, 5, with ex Shar Jackson and sons Sean, 4, and Jayden, 3, with Britney; and was less than pleased with the idea of doing diaper duty with yet a third “baby mama.”

Nicole Richie Gets A Restraining Order Against Two Paparazzi

You know things are getting out of control when celebrities have to take it to this level! Nicole Richie obtained a restraining order against two paparazzi: Eduardo Arrivebene and Ivon Miguel. They have been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Nicole and her children, Harlow and Sparrow.

In her filing, Richie states that photographers Eduardo Arrivebene and Ivon Miguel daily "stalk" Richie and her family, and that they "sit outside my house, waiting for me to leave." She alleges that they "scream at me in an attempt to get my reaction, scare me, follow me, chase me in [their] vehicle," causing her "severe emotional distress."

What makes them different from all the other paparazzi, though? They reportedly rear-ended Nicole earlier this month. That's going WAY too far.

"I am fearful that [their] continued presence may cause yet another accident, this time with my infant children in the vehicle," Richie adds. She says that even after the accident, the pair continued to pursue her.

Hopefully this will send a message that there are LIMITS to what the paparazzi can do to get their pictures!

Kate Gosselin Says She Hasn't Received Money From Jon

And here we go. Yesterday, Jon Gosselin's attorney said Jon had returned the money (although he declined to say the exact dollar amount) to their joint banking account. Well, Kate's attorney said they haven't received the money.

So far only $28,500 has been returned, says Kate's lawyer, but at 1:23 p.m. he received an email from Jon's Pennsylvania attorney saying he had the remaining $152,000 he owes.

"We still haven't had that money wired to us," he told PEOPLE. "I have no doubt Jon's lawyer is making an accurate representation but I'm just waiting."

Kate's attorney said his client was only ordered to account for money she had spent.

"Kate has complied with the court order in advance of the date," he says, noting the reality mom was not ordered to return any money.

So much for keeping things private. In other news, Jon's rep denied that he was considering competing on either 'Survivor' or 'The Amazing Race.'

Nick Lachey "Upset" About Jessica Simpson's Dog



Nick Lachey is just as devastated as Jessica Simpson that their pooch was snatched by a coyote last month.

"I think a lot of people forget that Daisy was my dog too -- for years," Lachey, 35, who gifted the five-year-old maltipoo to his ex wife, 29, tells Access Hollywood.

Lachey -- who has been promoting his reverse auction site, Winnit.com -- admits he's been thinking about Simpson a lot after hearing about Daisy's fate.

"I didn't reach out to her," he says. "I'm sure she was upset ... I was upset ... It was sad to hear that happened, but it's part of the cycle of life."

After Simpson's pup was grabbed by the coyote near her Los Angeles home, she wrote on Twitter: "A coyote took my precious Daisy right in front of our eyes. HORROR! We are searching. Hoping. Please help!"

She also hired a professional dog finding service to contact 1,000 neighbors and offered a reward -- but called off the search within three days.

Tyler Perry Discusses Abusive Childhood

Tyler Perry explains why the movie 'Precious' moved him so much that he signed on as executive producer after seeing it at a film festival: because of his own experiences as an abused child.

"[A]s I child I always thought I would die before I grew up...

"My father came home, mad at the world," he writes. "He was drunk, as he was most of the time. He got the vacuum cleaner extension cord and trapped me in a room and beat me until the skin was coming off my back."

That's only one of the many horrific experiences Tyler recounts on his website. He also writes about watching his father beat his mother, his own experience being sexually abused by a friend's mother, and one time when his grandmother bathed him in ammonia.

Tyler wrote that any money he or Oprah Winfrey make from 'Precious' will be donated to charity and why he wants people to see this film.

I sat there in tears realizing that somehow, by the grace of God, I made it through. My tears were tears of joy, being thankful that I made it... It gave me so much hope after watching it. For everyone who has been a Precious, male or female, this movie will make you so glad you made it through.

Nicole Richie Taken to Hospital After Car Accident

Nicole Richie was being taken to a Los Angeles hospital on Monday after she was rear-ended by paparazzi, police confirm to PEOPLE.

"Ms. Richie was driving with a passenger around 2 p.m. when she was struck by two photographers driving in one vehicle behind her," said Lt. Tony Lee of the Beverly Hills Police. "She complained of pain, and her passenger is transporting her to a local hospital. Her car sustained moderate damage. No paramedics were called to the scene."

The driver who rear-ended Richie is being arrested and booked for being unlicensed because "officers could not verify his identification," Lt. Lee added. "He's being physically brought into the station. This will likely be a misdemeanor traffic violation, and the photographer's vehicle will be towed."

Richie's two children were not in the vehicle.

Cibrian's Ex: LeAnn is 'Single White Female-ing Me'

In the continuing saga of LeAnn Rimes' relationship with Eddie Cibrian, his ex, Brandi Glanville, is now claiming that Rimes is "invading my space."

Brandi dished to Us Weekly, "I have a new neighbor and her name is LeAnn Rimes. She's moved in a half a mile from my house and a block from my son's school. So she is completely space-invading me at the moment, so things are not cool," said Glanville from the anniversary celebration of TAO/LAVO in Las Vegas. "There is a point where she needs to have a sensitive side and back the F up."

Glanville, 34, is irate that she's been spotting LeAnn around her neighborhood -- and even in front of her son Mason's school. "Honestly, she's Single White Female-ing me. She wants my life," Glanville rants. "She wants my kids. She wants my husband. She can have most of everything, but just not my children or my family."

The model mom has two children with Cibrian, and added, "We definitely save face for the kids, absolutely. They're the most important thing in both of our lives."

Brandi and Eddie called it quits in July, after months of rumors that Cibrian was cheating on Glanville with Rimes.

David Letterman's Extortion, Sex Shockers

"Late Night" host David Letterman announced tonight that he was the victim of an extortion plot -- and had a sexual relationship with at least one of his employees.

A statement distributed by Letterman's reps claims that three weeks ago, David received a package from someone who told him they had information about Letterman's sexual relationship with one of his employees. The caller then threatened to go public with the alleged information unless the comedian forked over $2 million.

Letterman contacted the Manhattan District Attorney's Special Prosecution Bureau, who set up a sting operation. The operation included David handing a fake check to the individual, who was arrested on Thursday.

During the show, Letterman confessed to the audience that he had to testify in front of a grand jury this morning -- and that he had to admit he had sexual relations with his staffers. "My response to that is, yes I have. Would it be embarrassing if it were made public? Perhaps it would," Letterman said. "I feel like I need to protect these people -- I need to certainly protect my family."

A spokesperson for Letterman declined to comment further.

Taylor Swift Likes To Surprise People With Free Coffee

Taylor Swift likes being famous because she can surprise people with a free cup of coffee. The ‘Love Story’ singer insists she loves sharing her good fortune with other people, and particularly loves surprising strangers with her generosity.

“Now I’m in a better position to be a bigger tipper when I’m out at a restaurant. People don’t expect it and you can make their day. I like going through a Starbucks drive-through and paying for the person behind, just because it’s nice.”

That's so sweet. Small gestures make the biggest impact right?

Despite her fame, the 19-year-old singer insists she is still careful with her money and takes advice from her father on how to invest and save.

She added to Britain’s Daily Star newspaper:

“I think it’s crazy as a star that you get free stuff when you can afford it. I don’t spend a lot of money. My dad is a financial adviser and has given me a lot of advice.”

Sounds like Taylor isn't going to be one of those celebs who burn through their earnings by the time they hit 30.

Swayze Dies at 57

Patrick Swayze has died after a brave battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 57 years old.

The actor was born in Houston, Texas on August 18, 1952 -- son of choreographer/dancer Patricia "Patsy" Yvonne Helen and Jesse Wayne Swayze, an engineering draftsman. Swayze began dancing at a very young age, but didn't make his acting debut until 1979 in his role as Ace in "Skatetown, U.S.A."

His big break came in 1987 when he played dance instructor Johnny Castle opposite co-star Jennifer Grey in "Dirty Dancing." The low-budget film became a surprise hit and catapulted Swayze to international fame. Patrick snagged a Golden Globe nod for his role in the movie, and displayed his singing chops on the soundtrack by crooning "She's Like the Wind," which he also co-wrote. Swayze achieved box office success again -- along with another Golden Globe nod -- in 1990's "Ghost," co-starring Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg.

Patrick also starred in the cult classic "Point Break" in 1991 -- the same year he was named People magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive."

Swayze met his wife Lisa Niemi in 1970 -- when the actor was only 18 and she began taking dance lessons from Swayze's mother. They fell in love and married in 1975 --- and were inseparable.

During the '80s and '90s, Swayze struggled with alcohol addiction. In 1994, he entered rehab and took a break from show business to breed horses on his ranches in California, Las Vegas and New Mexico.

The actor was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January 2008, and began undergoing chemotherapy and other cancer treatments at Stanford University Medical Center. He was reportedly a heavy smoker.

During the summer of 2008, following treatment, Patrick defied all odds by filming "The Beast," an A&E series about a veteran FBI agent. The show premiered in 2009 on USA.

Swayze is survived by his wife of 34 years.

Kate Gosselin: "I've Lost Control in My Life"

Kate Gosselin wishes she could go back to being a regular mom.

At Ohio's second annual Cleveland Women's Show on Friday, the reality mom of eight, 34, told a crowd of mostly women, "I've lost a lot of control in my life."

She later went on, "At the beginning of all of this, you've heard me say before, I didn't want fans gawking, I didn't want people gawking, I just wanted to be myself, my family.

"I have learned, I appreciate your support, I need you, I love you, thank you."

Before exiting the stage, she also shared exercise and cooking tips with moms. But she stressed, "Moms don't just sit there cooking everyday and aren't always there to greet their kids at the school bus. Moms are as versatile as dads. If you're working you're also providing for your kids in a different way."

The evening's moment of comic relief came when a fan told Kate she wanted to offer babysitting services.

Kate shot back, "Get in line, honey!"

Taylor Swift: It was an 'Interesting Night'

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

After being upstaged by Kanye West as she accepted her award for Best Female Video, Taylor Swift admitted to reporters that it had been an "interesting night."

"Well, I was standing on stage because I was really excited because I had just won the award," the country cutie told reporters at the show. "And then I was really excited because Kanye West was on stage. And then I wasn't so excited anymore after that."

Taylor revealed that after the interruption by the hip-hop star to praise Beyoncé's video, she received kind words from fellow celebrities. "I've been getting so many text messages and everybody's been really nice. So I've had a really, really fun night. It's been interesting, definitely."

Swift, a fan of West, said that she harbors no bad feelings. "I don't know him, and I've never met him, so... I don't want to start anything because I had a great night tonight."

The "You Belong With Me" singer also thanked Beyoncé, who, after winning Video of the Year, graciously pulled Swift onstage so she could finish the acceptance speech that Kanye had interrupted. "They told me to stand by the side of the stage, and I didn't really know what was going to go down," Taylor explained. "But I thought it was so wonderful and gracious of her to do what she's always done. She's always been a great person before anything else. Before the talented artist, the superstar, she's always been a great person and I thought I couldn't love Beyoncé more tonight, than tonight."

Jon Gosselin Has A $22,000 Therapy Bill

Now that's a serious health bill! That's how much Jon Gosselin claims he has spent on therapy. He says he tried to get estranged wife Kate Gosselin to go, but she refused, according to Us Weekly.

"I learned about myself. If she's not going to therapy, she's not going to fix herself, then it's not going to work. It takes two people," he says. "I have a $22,000 therapy bill. I mean, I tried to have marriage counseling. I did it myself. She refused to go."

What does Jon think went wrong in his marriage?

"I felt maybe I was too passive. Maybe I didn't stand my grounds 10 years ago -- even to stick up for my kids. But it's gone. I can't get that back."

"I don't cry, I cried at my dad's funeral. That's it," he says, "but like, I've cried more now in the last, like, eight months than ... my whole entire life."

And how does Jon justify his behavior since he split from Kate?

"I just want to let the world know that I'm a real person with feelings," he says. "OK, I've made mistakes. Maybe it wasn't the best idea to go out to the clubs. But we all learn from mistakes, except mine are public."

Shawne Merriman of the San Diego Chargers was taken into custody by the San Diego County Sheriff's Department after an alleged altercation with Tila Tequila.

San Diego Sheriff's deputies responded to a call this morning at 3:45 AM. Tila claims she was "choked and physically restrained" by Merriman after she tried to leave his residence.

Merriman is accused of battery and false imprisonment.

UPDATE -- Tila Tequila has been released from the hospital.

UPDATE -- A lawyer for Merriman denied all charges and says Tila was "extremely inebriated" and that Merriman tried to stop her from leaving the home because he didn't feel it was safe for her to do so.

UPDATE -- A.J. Smith, the general manager of the San Diego Chargers, released this statement: "It's disappointing to hear about the issue involving Shawne Merriman. We'll continue to monitor the situation and let the legal process run its course."

DJ AM FOUND DEAD IN NYC APARTMENT

he NY Post is reporting that DJ AM (Adam Goldstein) was found dead in his apartment on Lafayette Street in Manhattan today.

Sources said drug paraphernalia was found in the apartment.

TMZ is unfortunately confirming the same news:

Law enforcement sources tell us he was found in his apartment at around 5:20 PM. We're told drug paraphernalia was found at the scene. We're told DJ AM had not been seen or heard from for a few days -- one of his friends went to check on him, but got no response after knocking on his apartment door.

On August 25th, Adam tweeted:

"New york, new york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems."

Perhaps everything wasn't as fine as it seemed from the outside. My heart goes out to his friends and family. Last year Adam and Travis Barker survived a deadly plane crash together. I can't help but think about what Travis must be feeling. They became very close after the incident.

The 36 year old was once engaged to Nicole Richie and dated Mandy Moore on and off for several years.

Tori Spelling’s Kids Play At The Park

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott enjoy dinner with their children at Tra Di Noi Restraunt and a visit to the park at Cross Creek in Malibu, Calif. on Wednesday (August 19).

The 36-year-old 90210 actress was a co-host for the Today Show last month, that helped her realize she may be interested in having her own talk show. “I would like to, if they would have me back,” Tori says. “I definitely like the format of the talk show, so I’d definitely love to do something like that in the future.”

Co-host Kathie Lee Gifford gave her some words of advice on the set. “Oh my gosh, she just said ‘be yourself, go for it,’” Tori told OK!. “That was her thing. Don’t hold back. I remember the first day, I was a little nervous, and I thought ‘OK, it’s Kathie Lee, she’s like an icon, she’s been doing this forever, I have to be so respectful.’ And then she was busting my balls, and I thought ‘oh, I can’t fire back.’ Then, we went to lunch that day and we completely bonded. We had the total two-hour girlfriend lunch, and the next day I came back firing at her. I just felt like I could do that. We were on the same level. And we had bonded – we were girlfriends. It’s so nice to have that compatibility, and we just totally clicked.”

Kenny Chesney launches laidback clothing line

For Kenny Chesney (and his fans), “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems” isn’t just a song, it’s a way of life. And now the country star is launching a clothing line, Blue Chair Bay, that captures his laidback style. The pieces — for men and women — are designed to look and feel like “that favorite T-shirt that you’ve washed a lot that is kind of sun bleached… your favorite khakis, and your shirt that you’ve had forever,” he tells People.

(Naturally, there are worn-in baseball caps, too.) Chesney was so involved in the design process that he even name-checks friends on some of the items. “I’ve got a shirt that says “Bob’s Charter” and Bob is a buddy of mine that’s been living in the islands for a long time.”

Sure, not everyone can live in the Caribbean like Chesney, but he hopes his new mid-priced line (ranging from $35 for a T-shirt to $72 for khakis) — which is currently being sold at Fast Buck Freddies in Key West, Ocean Eddie’s Resort Wear in Gulf Shores, Ala., and Levy’s in Nashville — prompts people to use their imagination. “Blue Chair Bay is kind of like the place we’d all like to go if we had no obligations or nowhere to be,” he says, “and that’s kind of what I want this clothing line to represent. These are the clothes I would pack to go to this place.” Count us in!

"I definitely want to reconcile with my mother, but that's the wrong word," Tori confessed to OK!. "There's nothing that really happened that made us fight. It's just time, distance and media that have come between my mom and me."

"I just think that as long as we both keep it private from here on out, reconciliation is imminent. It will totally happen and I hope that she wants that."

"I am proud of my kids, but I also want to make my mom proud of me. I'm still a momma's girl at the heart of the situation," Tori dished to OK!. "I look forward to the relationship that Liam and Stella will have with their grandmother one day and I'm confident that it will happen."

Kris Jenner: ‘We Are Truly Blessed’

Although the news that Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant with her first child came as a quite a surprise, her family is excited about their new addition.

“I am beyond thrilled and excited and cannot wait to meet my new grandchild!” mom Kris Jenner tells People exclusively. “We are truly blessed.”

A day after announcing her news, Kardashian revealed that her baby’s daddy is off-again, on-again boyfriend Scott Disick.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the close-knit Kardashian-Jenner clan, whose lives are chronicled on the E! Series Keeping up with the Kardashians, are supportive of Kourtney’s new adventure.

Her sister Kim Kardashian shared her excitement about the news on Twitter, writing: “CONGRATS to my sister Kourtney who is pregnant! I am going to be an auntie!!!! Aunti Kimmie!!!!”

Pregnant Kourtney Kardashian: I Forgot to Take "the Pill"

Pregnant Kourtney Kardashian says little sister Kim thought she'd be the first Kardashian sib to become a mom.

"She definitely thought it was going to be her first. Kim has, like, every baby name picked out," Kourtney said on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show this morning.

See photos of other stars who had surprise pregnancies.

"Kim...I don't think she was envious, but who knows," Kourtney went on of her sis, who recently split from Reggie Bush. "Kim gets mad if I get, like, the car that she wants. She, like, freaks out.

"Out of all of us, I was definitely the last one that was even thinking about it," Kourtney confessed, adding that she's due around Christmastime -- the same period as another E! reality star, Kendra Wilkinson.

Check out photos of moms in bikinis.

Kourtney says she had her sister Khloe tell the family she was expecting.

"I was just, like, so nervous," she said. Stepdad Bruce Jenner was "the most realistic," she says. "[He said], 'You guys are acting like you're getting a little puppy dog! You need to take this seriously'.... He freaks me out the most."

Check out Us' baby bump hall of fame.

Getting pregnant with Scott Disick -- with whom she recently reunited after splitting in February -- was unplanned.

"This probably sounds so dumb, but there's so many times I'll forget to take my pill and I don't think it's that big of a deal. It's just so stupid," she admitted.

Kourtney says she had an inkling she was pregnant after getting "really nauseous, like, suddenly...not just in the morning. I would have to eat Saltines at all times in the day."

On her new reality show -- Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami (premiering Sunday) -- she literally gets sick in a club, she said.

Her boobs also became "huge and they were so sore."

Now that she's about five months along, Kourtney explains how she dresses her bump: "I just wear jeans and keep them unbuttoned and wear a big shirt."

(She's also opening a new store in California "soon," she says: Dash for Babies.)

Kourtney says she's brainstorming names for either a boy or girl -- and dropping the "K" alliteration her siblings share.

Check out photos of secret star siblings.

"It's so hard. I'll think of something and it just goes away," she said. "And everyone is asking what we're doing with the last name: Kardashian or Disick. I don't know [if we're getting married]. We've talked about it. I feel like there's so much going on, but I don't know if I can even go there."

The baby may be incorporated into the second season of her reality show, she joked.

Seven VMA Nods: Crazy Britney Spears Being Lured as Ratings Bait Again?

It’s that time of the year again — last week nominations were released for MTV’s star-studded and notoriously controversial Video Music Awards. But who should score a whooping seven nods, including the top category for Video of the Year? Britney Spears, y’all.

The songstress will be up against 2009’s hottest acts, Beyonce and Lady Gaga for the coveted prize, prompting numerous industry insiders to question if she really deserved such a slew of nominations for her one and only music video this year, Womanizer, in which she suggestively caresses her seemingly naked body, photocopies her bottom after stomping around a corporate office in a black wig and gets raunchy in the back of a car in her secret-service inspired get-up.

“We were surprised she got so many nominations because she has been ‘lip synching’ and while she is talented, the terrain has changed so this may be sympathy nominations because she is getting well,” said a key industry insider. “Every network is hurting for eyeballs. Britney always draws an audience.”

But let’s not forget that it was because of the troubled Tinseltowner’s sedated-like opening performance in 2007 that the VMAs surged into a whole new ratings stratosphere.

“When I first saw it I started to panic,” an MTV advertising executive told Tarts at the time. “But I soon realized that this was great, it was obviously going to get a lot of attention around the world.”

Last year, Brit was ratings-gold for the VMAs (viewership was up 41 percent from two years prior) thanks to her over hyped ‘comeback’ - although this time she didn’t have to sing and dance, she just had to gratuitously accept three moonmen for her musical abilities. Interestingly, those three VMAs were the first Spears had ever won although she had previously received 16 nominations. Her 1999 debut album “Baby One More Time” remains the highest-selling album by a female pop artist of all time but even then she only scored three nominations.

So does Brit really now deserve seven nods or is MTV trying to not-so-subtly steer Spears back to the stage, for better or for worse?

Her former music producer and good friend, the Grammy winning Dallas Austin, even admitted she was quite “a singer.”

“Britney is very normal, very average. She’s fun, she likes to play games, it’s sad because Hollywood makes you into a person that you don’t want to be,” Austin told us. “She can sing, but it’s different than being a singer and a person who can sing. The average person can sing pretty much, you can sing along to it in the car and you’ll probably be in the same pitch. But then there’s people who can’t sing, and they’re tone deaf and they can’t hear the pitch that the song is in. That’s a different story. Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, Aaliyah - there are a lot of people with really great tones that aren’t going to sing like Celine Dion or Whitney Houston.”

The Secret to Britney’s New Bikini Body

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

As Britney Spears prepares to hit the road again next week for her second concert tour of North America in less than nine months, the pop superstar — and mother of two young sons— has managed to get her body looking the best it has since the days of “Ooops!… I Did It Again” and “I’m a Slave 4 U.” And Brit herself is thrilled with her own transformation.

A source tells OK! that Britney — who flaunted her toned physique in a barely there white Eres bikini for an Aug. 6 photo shoot in L.A. — is thrilled with her new figure.

“Britney used to hate her body when she looked in the mirror after having the boys,” a longtime pal of the singer tells OK!. “But last week she sent pictures home to [her mom] Lynne and wrote, ‘Look how good I look!’ ”

Melrose Place actor Ethan Erickson, who appears in Britney’s “Radar” music video and also worked on a Candie’s shoot with the performer, says she looked “dynamite” when they shot the company’s campaign several months ago. Of course, he’s even more impressed by her current bikini body. “I think the whole thing just screams, ‘I’m back,’ ” Ethan tells OK!.

The sexy mom of Sean, 3, and Jayden, 2, can credit her slamming new body in part to the Sunfare diet, a gourmet meal delivery company. Sunfare, which counts stars such as Eva Longoria Parker, Marcia cross and Khloe Kardashian among its fans, incorporates a balanced, low-carb approach of three big meals and two snacks per day, all documented through the delivery system.

“When Britney is on Sunfare, she consumes approximately 1,100 to 1,200 calories per day,” a source reveals to OK!.

The other major factor behind Brit’s renewed physique is good old-fashioned hard work in the dance studio and on stage.

“Her outlet is dance,” the longtime friend says. “She’s still dancing at least two hours a day and sometimes she’ll rehearse up to eight hours a day.”

Still, says another insider, “It didn’t come easy. It was a long, hard road. Britney dedicated herself in such a focused way. We are all so proud of her, not just for her physical achievements but also for her mental and emotional ones.”

Kourtney Kardashian Is Pregnant!

Kourtney Kardashian is going to be a mom!

While the E! reality star confirms she's pregnant with her first child, Ms. K isn't revealing too much right now. She's keeping mum on the daddy's identity and how far along she is.

But the happy news definitely sheds light on some of the things she told me yesterday during my chat with her sister Khloé...

Kourt, 30, refused to say if she and ex-boyfriend Scott Disick are back together. "You're going to have to see on the show," she said, referring to Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami, which debuts this Sunday.

Funny enough, the big question these days has been whether Kourtney has switched teams because of a kiss she shared with her bisexual friend Jackie during shooting of said reality show.

"I feel like I'm definitely into men," she said.

She's certainly proven that now.
