Britney Spears is hooked on the real thing.
The rehabbing pop tart has been popping up to a case of Coke every day while at Promises, according to Star. But all that caffeine is making Brit a less than exemplary patient, say Star sources: "She's been very demanding ... refuses to pick up after herself and even asked if she could hire a maid!"
Still, TMZ spoke exclusively yesterday to someone who might be helping Brit through the difficult times – new man-friend, musician Jason Filyaw. "I love her, I support her 100% and we are close," says Filyaw, who's been attending AA meetings with Spears.
Angelina Gets Her Man
Angelina Jolie's at it again. The earth mother left an orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City last night, and took with her a boy from the Tam Binh home. They got into a Toyota SUV which then sped over to the Department of Justice, where Jolie may have finished the paperwork for the adoption, reports the AP. Then, Jolie was expected to go to the US Consulate, where a passport could be arranged so the pair could go home. The adoption was fast-tracked by the Vietnamese government after Jolie and Brad Pitt visited the country last November and decided they would adopt another child.
Jolie was accompanied, as TMZ reported yesterday, by Cambodian-born son Maddox, and the pair were greeted at the orphanage by a welcoming party of 20 children dressed in traditional Vietnamese tunics.
Martha -- Sketchy and Rude
Martha Stewart is clearly still as bitter as strychnine over her ImClone legal mess of a couple years ago. During a taping of her show on Tuesday, the domestic diva spotted Shirley Shepard, the woman who did the sketches of her in court during her trial in 2004. According to Page Six, she pointed at Shepard and screeched, "I know you! She's the bad artist who did all those terrible sketches of me," and made a red-faced Shirley stand up for the crowd. Says Shepard's daughter Andrea, herself a sketch artist, "It was so rude and so embarrassing." Stewart's rep declined comment. You may remember that Stewart begged Shepard at her arraignment back in 2003 to make her "look prettier."
Senator Ah-nuld? It Could Happen
Calif. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is being courted for a run for the Senate, says Rush & Molloy, against incumbent Barbara Boxer in 2010. GOP officials "have expressed interest" to the Governator, and the GOP-sters think Schwarzenegger could "blow [Boxer] out of the water." Arnold hasn't yet proclaimed any desire to go to DC, but has said, "It would be boring if I knew what I would be doing four years from now. That's why I did movies and didn't do a TV series, where you know what happens." Pols point out, however, that Arnie might have an uphill battle against the popular Boxer.
