Britney Drops Dime in Rehab

3/27/2007 1:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Looks like rehab did more than good for Britney Spears' soul – she also dropped a surprising ten pounds during her stay in Promises, and got herself not just buff, but buffed with spa treatments.

That Other Blog tells us this morning that the pop princess lost at least 10 lbs. during her stay at Promises – a figure that's backed up by snaps from the weekend, which TMZ showed you yesterday. What's more, adds TOB, while inside she was treated to several spa treatments that included skin cleansing, helping to release toxins from her system.

And as TMZ's been told, Britney's made a real and significant turnaround since she checked in to the Malibu rehab facility.

Eminem and Ex-Wife Agree to Shut Up


Now this, folks, is real news. Eminem and his ex-wife Kim Mathers actually agreed not to trash each other in public – for the sake of their daughter. The couple made the decision during a court hearing in Michigan after Eminem (aka Marshall Mathers) filed a motion Friday to muzzle Kim, after she'd made numerous salacious comments about the rapper. Kim had told one TV interviewer that she'd been driven to attempt suicide by Eminem, and recently told a Detroit radio station that he was unfaithful and uncaring and said some uncomplimentary things about his sexual athleticism. Eminem didn't actually appear in court, except by phone, and his lawyer said, "We're happy the court was able to bring this matter to a just and equitable resolution."

Piven Gets Pissy, Again


Jeremy Piven may need to learn how to cook for himself pretty soon, as he's getting the ol' 86 from a growing slew of eateries. The "Entourage" star got into a tiff, reports Ben Widdicombe of the New York Daily News, with a hostess at an unnamed restaurant off Vine in Hollywood. It seems that Piven tried to get into the joint on Valentine's Day without a reservation, but when the hostess explained that they were booked solid, Jeremy exploded. "Believe it or not, he used the 'Don't you know who I am?' line," says Widdicombe's source. And then he got all Ari Gold on the hostess, humiliating her for working in a restaurant. This incident follows on allegations that Piven's been banned from Nobu restaurants across the world for his boorish behavior at the Aspen branch.

Party Favors: Jessica Simpson Gives Minivan to Mexicans ... Kumar Teaches Penn Kids About Movies ... Damon and Wahlberg Team Up for Boxing Flick


Remember when Jessica Simpson won a Chrysler Crossfire last fall and everyone was, like, "What does she need with a new car?" Well, turns out Jessica is giving it to someone who really needs it. Simpson exchanged the sports coupe for a minivan and donated it to a Mexican orphanage she supports, says People. ... Now his parents can finally tell the neighbors what he's up to: Kal Penn, he of Kumar of "Harold and Kumar" fame, will be teaching classes at -- where else -- the University of Pennsylvania as a special instructor. Penn will teach classes about teen movies and Asian-Americans in film. ... Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg will team up in "The Fighter," a boxing drama that is in talks now, as Variety reports, to be directed by "The Fountain's" Darren Aronofsky.

Re:Jeremy Piven at the "unnamed" restaurant, offVine.
As anybody who lives in Hollywood knows, Off Vine, on Leland, is the name of the restaurant,
popular with film executives and celebrities alike, who don't need the publicity afforded at the Ivy further west.
So much for TMZ's intimate knowledge of Tinseltown!

I cannot stand it when celebrities feel a need to let the whole world know when they have made a donation to charity. It is clearly done not out of the goodness of their heart, but to make sure their face stays in the spotlight. Can't they donate quietly and / or anonymously?

Instead, Jesisca Simpson makes sure SHE is the one driving the new minivan into the orphanage because she knew cameras would be snapping ( of course she knew...her camp alerted the media to make sure they were on hand ). She did not buy this minivan...she won it. Then she ( or her daddy ) cleverly decide to use this win as a strategy to make her appear charitable and saint worthy....and get her some much needed positive media exposure for damage control of her failing career.

They all need to go back to the bible and read Matthew 6: 1-4....which teaches about not tooting your horn when you do good works.

#2: You are acting exactly like Jeremy Piven with your name calling and insults. Are you too immature to see that??!!! It's so funny....you seem to hate this guy; but are just like him! Ha!! Just like the old saying goes, "The qualities you hate in others are the same qualities you hate about yourself ".

So, its okay for their daughter to hear the song where Eminem kills her mother, and I may be wrong here, but wasn't that on the same album as the song with Hailey on it? My dads gone crazy or something?

Looks like Kim was right in her interview I saw... Slim Shady can't stand anyone trash talking him... he can dish it but he can't take it....

Who is Jeremy Piven? I"ve never heard of him, and he doesn't look like anybody special, but everyone is special in some way.

Sam, Comment No. 3: I wholeheartedly agree with you. Had Jessica donated the van in a private manner, it would have been more thought of. She's just like the majority of celebrities---starved for attention.

I just cannot believe he (jp) would put the hostess down for working in a restaurant. He wasn't a star his whole life, that is just rude. At least she has a job and isn't living off welfare while the rest of us work.

Jeremy Piven needs to get over himself----- he isn't even close to being ALL THAT!. He just thinks he is. Get real, Jeremy---if you pulled that "don't you know who I am" crap with most people, they would laugh in your face!!!!

It's nice to see Britney out and about but I find it extraordinarily hard to believe that Britney has made a complete turnaround. I'm sorry but no one changes in 27 days. And while in rehab she was treated to spa treatments? Doesn't sound much like rehab to me. This place she went to almost sounds like a joke if they give spa treatments. How about a rehab place that teaches you a trade or something then pampering you at a time where you shouldn't be pampered but made to focus on getting better.

Has anyone even reported on if she's seen her kids? I haven't heard those stories.

Who cares about Jeremy Piven anyways?

And Jessica Simpson, oy vey, that girl is more in love with the camera than she is herself. So anything she can do to get more attention she'll do.

Why is it will all the homeless and the sick in the United States these starrs are so willing to spend their money on other countries instead of their own country. The United States has just as many sick and homeless as these other countries but they continue to support out side the country. Can you imagine how these people feel when they read about all the support other countries get and they get nothing. I think it is ashame we support these starres and they show there gratitude by sending money and gifts to other countries.
