Britney Groveling to Get Back With K-Fed?

2/2/2007 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney and K-Fed.Britney Spears has been making late-night phone calls to K-Fed in hope of a reconciliation, so say several of Kevin's close peeps. They tell TMZ that Britney's relationship with Isaac Cohen is a ruse to make Kevin jealous.

But other sources -- frankly, the ones that ring true for TMZ -- say Britney is so over him. They tell us that Brit and the Fed have very little contact, and when they do communicate, it's about their two kids.

By the way, according to these sources, the reports that Britney will ante up $25 mil to K-Fed to end their marriage are Hot Britney gallery: Click to launch photosridiculous. One connected source says the $25 million figure is grossly inflated, "by 25 times." In other words, the bad news is that K-Fed will be a millionaire. The good news -- just barely.











Jennifer Hudson: "Idol" Was Abusive


Heavy-Duty Idols gallery: Click to launch galleryNow that she's moved well beyond "American Idol" into Oscar-nominated fame, Jennifer Hudson is dissing the show that made her famous, calling it abusive, misleading, and brainwashing. She tells Essence magazine (via People) of her time on the show, "You go through this mental thing: you've got to get yourself back together. You've been abused, misled and brainwashed to believe whatever they want you to think." Hudson, who finished sixth during Season Three of the show, says that she was "the girl in the turkey wrapping," referring to a particularly bad wardrobe choice, and that to overcome the characterization, she had to "sing my way out of it." Meanwhile, Hudson scoffs at rumors that there was any tension on the set of "Dreamgirls" between her and Beyonce Knowles: "We clicked from day one."

Jess Lookalike Gets Nick in Trouble


Is there trouble in the heretofore blissful romance between Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo? A Rush & Molloy spy says the pair got into a loud tiff at Manhattan club Plumm - and it all started when a Jessica Simpson-lookalike tried to give Nick her digits. Vanessa spotted the attempted exchange and stormed out of the club, yelling, "We have to talk." Lachey followed, and even hailed her a cab, but it was too late - his galpal had already gotten her own cab and hightailed it away from the club. The pair has been inundated with rumors that they're already engaged, and they've been seen around New York looking generally lovey-dovey.

Mariah: Eminem's Obsessed with Me


Mariah Carey is really, truly concerned about rapper Eminem: "Something is clearly askew with him," she tells Playboy, "and I'm not quite sure what it is." Last year, when Carey publicly denied having had any relations with the rapper, he didn't like it -- he called her a liar and reserved some choice rhymes for her on his latest album, "The Re-Up." Mariah simply doesn't understand: "I'm curious as to why he's so obsessed with me." (Uh, Mariah, you're the one still talking about him.) Adds Mimi, "I never got an apology letter, by the way... then again, I wasn't exactly searching my mailbox for it."

Mariah is so full of herself.She should be thankful anyone would want to put her in a song.Just because she made an alleged comeback doesn't mean it's gonna last forever.How quickly she's forgotten about "Glitter".

1. Jennifer Hudson should NOT be so cocky. SHe lucked out that this role came up and she got it. How many other big movie roles will be coming up for her type? Not many. If she was smart she would have kept her complaining mouth shut - it just makes her look like an ingrate.

2. I think Britney's wild partying was just a ploy to get K-Fed's attention. I do believe that she calls him and would love to get back with his ass.

Jennifer Hudson tries so hard to act like beyonce(stupid name) , with her ghetto ways and talk, fame has gone to her head and no one is telling her what a fool she is making of herself, also by dissing American Idol shows how much class she has (class E act) , she IS a nobody and when her 15HOURS of fame is up she will be back on the streets where she belongs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The people that have won or gone far on Idol have no idea what real abuse is in the music business.....because of the time they had on Idol they got to by pass more b/s than anyone should have to deal with in one life time.It is much worse for women....because half the time people that want to help them want sex also and most of the time they are not who they say they are and are of no help...... I have been a guitarist/composer for most of my life and I can tell you first hand.....Simon is a pussycat compared to what I have seen at pro auditions .... I always prefer to handle a project that is mine with more compassion but sadly I am in the minority .....most are brutal if you can't cut it at a pro level.

K-who. Have we forgotten he left his pregnant wife and child for Brittany. Yes she is crazy for her outfits and drinking. I also can't imagine leaving my kids with nannies so I could party. He should not have anymore kids. She should take parenting classes!

Brit and K-fed. I think the rumors of her calling him are just a publicity stunt for him to still get some spot light time. Not working. That's ridiculous and why would anyone believe that? He's beggin' for a million, basically.
J. Hud. I don't doubt that the show is abusive and misleading. If you pay attention to other idol contestant's after stories the show and the after tours are nightmares. You have no say on anything, where as they give you a false sense of "control" over song choice and appearance. Look at the make overs, listen to the back and forth criticism of a man with a CLEAR superiority complex, another with a CLEAR inferiority complex - DAWG-, and a Junkie.
Vanessa, rip him a new one. It's not jealousy, it's mutual respect. Reverse the roles. Say she was talking to a man, getting his number and Nick saw it. Instead of reaming her everyone would be throwing another POOR NICK pity party. WIFE LEFT HIM GF CHEATS ON HIM...POOR THING. He should have told the girl he was NOT interested and to leave him alone. THEN introduced his GF to her.
Oh, and congrats on the twins Dreamy.

Mary if Vanessa was not insecure she would not be furious! Look at the differences in the pictures with Nick and Jessica & Nick and vanessa. Even vanessa sees the difference, she looks like Nick is walking his dog while w/ Jessica, she looks like a model. Jessica is a ditzy, annoying speaking, stupid moron of a person, but she can sure walk the red carpet, vanessa probably pees on the red carpet!

Hey, lay off Mariah. The kid has had a hard time of it, and her comeback has been brilliant and well-deserved. Gentlemen don't kiss and tell. But if Mariah says it didn't happen, that's good enough for me. Y'all need lives!
