Take My Life, My Card . . . Puh-leeze!

That, apparently, is Britney's latest message to K-Fed. You see, the pop princess has, according to a report, given her aspiring rapper husband one gift that he won't leave home without -- a high-rolling Black American Express card -- just in case he wants to go buy his own airplane or something.



The American Express Centurion card, otherwise known as the Black AmEx, is friend and status symbol to potentates (and, now, aspiring rappers) worldwide, and, according to In Touch Weekly (via MSNBC), the Britster is bestowing the precious plastic on her husband because she wants to prove "how much she trusts him."

Meanwhile, the mag also reports that Britney is going to renew her vows with K-Fed after the birth of their second child in the fall. Apparently, she didn't want an elaborate ceremony the first time around when she and Kev tied the knot in September 2004, but they're ready to do it all over again. "She wants to show the world that she is happily married," an "insider" tells the magazine. Spears' rep says nothing is planned, however.

Lindsay Gets Boot From Chateau?

Could Lindsay Lohan's hard-charging ways be too much even for the Chateau Marmont? The legendary LA hotel – and enclave to the stars – might be giving La Lohan the eighty-six because her partying has become too "disruptive."

According to Page Six, the freckled phenom's behavior at the Chateau, where Hollywood royalty has indulged themselves for years in well-shielded privacy, has prompted management to consider a ban. "They are trying to kick her out. It is very disruptive with all of her friends coming in and out and her late nights," says one source. A rep for the hotel says the rumor isn't true.

And just as Lohan deals with the fallout from producer James G. Robinson's very public scolding, a crew member from the 2005 masterpiece "Herbie: Fully Loaded" has posted a letter on worldofwonder.net blasting Lindsay's work habits. The anonymous posting makes various charges not dissimilar to Robinson's, including the fact that Lohan "played the exhaustion card a couple of times."

But Lohan's rep slammed the faceless accuser, saying, "Stop hiding behind blind anonymity!" (Is there any other kind?)

HOV Takes on H20: Jay-Z Wants Better Water

He may be more a champagne man generally – Cristal or not – but Jay-Z's latest obsession appears to be something that doesn't just flow freely everywhere-water.

The mogul-artist announced yesterday at the UN that he's traveling to Africa for the first time ever to document the world water crisis for an MTV documentary called "Diary of Jay-Z: Water for Life," which will air November 24, say Rush & Molloy. Jay will be meeting children who, according to estimates, are amongst the more than 1 billion people around the world who don't have clean and safe drinking water.

"Every 15 seconds a child dies from not having access to clean water," the rapper told the press at the UN. "I want people to know that while they're having their Poland Spring at Cipriani." (Who knew they served Poland Spring at Cipriani?)

Christie's Mom Says Daughter Ain't Taking Hubby Back

Christie Brinkley's mother Marjorie Brinkley doesn't think there's going to be any kind of reconciliation between her daughter and her philandering husband Peter Cook.

In an interview with Star magazine (via the New York Daily News), Mrs. Brinkley says, "She is not wavering . . . or taking him back. She is not planning that." What's more, says Marjorie, the ex-supermodel has already been asked out by a few guys but isn't quite ready to start dating just yet. Brinkley's spokesman, the tireless Elliot Mintz, says, "I cannot confirm or deny that report."

The Daily News says that Brinkley hasn't been seen outside her Hamptons compound since Monday, when photogs caught her in a state of some distress.

No legs in Texas :(    

Kevin rarely goes on vacation w/ her, he's been recording his crap, I mean rap, spends alot more time with his friends and she hands him a credit card? This girl really has low self esteem. Does she really think she needs to bribe this guy to stay with her? She's only delaying the inevitable, he's gonna leave her and find another victim. Wake up girl and smell the rat!

Why does everyone think that Lindsey Lohan is so wonderful? She is a terrible actress and singer and has absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever. I would like to know how a 20 year old girl (and the rest of the underage actors out there) can get into these clubs, bars and rents rooms in hotels for that matter. She is underage and is let into all these places. Don't they card people still? Just because she has been in a few really bad movies doesn't mean she is a superstar. Good for her boss to spank her a little for being late to the set, staying out partying every night instead of staying home and getting some rest. Maybe she wouldn't be so exhausted. Oh and by the way, Dina Lohan, if you were any kind of good mother, you wouldn't let your daughter behave that way and then stick up for her when her boss gives her a set down. Maybe you are the problem.

Hopefully soon the star will fade for Lindsey Lohan because she truly just sucks!

God, how sick we all are with listening to the bull crap that is coming out of Britney Spears. Britney Spears has absolutely lost what little brains she had in that head of hers. First she marries a cheater, has a kid with him that he obviously didn't want, gives the cheatera ton of expensive toys to play wth then takes them away because she is mad at him (every other day), pays for him to sing in a recording studio (even though he sucks) takes him of vacation after vacation, gets knocked up again by the cheating bastard, cries to Matt Lauer how happy she is with the cheater while looking like crap and then gives him a Black Amex. She must really want to lose all the money she earned over the course of her now defunct career. There really is no coming back for her.
Britney, if you were smart you would dump this loser as soon as the other kid is born and cut your loses and move home to Louisiana to your mother. You still have time to look for a real man. Federline has ruined you and your career by being a low-life gold digger. (Britney, please read about Heather Mills, Paul McCartney's hopefully soon gold digging ex-wife) Too bad your kids have to have a father like that. Too bad you chose the wrong guy. But it is never too late to make a change.

Whatever    

Britney is bats to give that hustler one dime. Anyone that leaves their seven month pregnant girlfriend (and then lies about it) for fame and fortune is a real scumbag. K-fag spent his time in Vegas casinos gambling away her money while she was pregnant. The guy has no shame leeching off her and now thinks he's going to be a rapper? He is not a man he is a little bitch.

Britney needs a luncheon with Debbie Reynolds and Doris Day, throw in Joan Collins for the dessert and many after dinner cocktails.

Mr.Sponge-Spears better be ready for the abuse he is going to get each time he dares to pull out that card. How about just using the plastic you came with Kev? Oops, don't have any huh? May I recommend the David Lee Roth song that appears to peg you...."I'm just a Gigalo, and everwhere I go, people know the game I'm playin.'"

I would not be surprised to learn that he has been stashing her funds under some sort of alias, after HE dumps her for let's predict...Lindsay Lohan! Yeehaa, ride 'em cowboy! You heard it here first America!!!
