Britney

To Pen Tell-All

4/28/2007 4:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A stint in rehab, a bitter divorce, a bizarre run-in with hair clippers -- Britney Spears' story has all the makings of a sensational novel. Those waiting to read about Britney's turbulent life in print, y'all, wait no more. Spears is gearing up to write a tell-all about life with ex-hubby/mooch Kevin Federline, in which she claims that the "Popozao" singer nearly drove her to suicide. Us too, Brit, us too. Spears has yet to settle on a publisher, but the book is expected to earn her more than $10 million.

Tyra Banks: No Dine and Dash!

Call it misadventures in babysitting: Earlier this week Tyra Banks joined Russell Simmons, along with his children Ming, 7, and Aoki, 4, at the Brooklyn Diner in midtown Manhattan, and accidentally skipped out on the tab. Tyra's misstep was reported in the Daily News on Wednesday, and Tyra was confronted about it by "The View" co-host Joy Behar on Thursday. To hear Tyra explain it, it was simply a misunderstanding: Tyra thought Russell was paying, and Russell thought she was paying. Tyra returned to the resto at the end of the week to pay the bill, and handed waiter Guillermo Marquez a $100 tip.

Simon: I Taunt Paula

Snarky "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell mercilessly taunts practically every "Idol" performer -- and co-judge Paula Abdul. In fact, he's so busy bothering Abdul during the show, that he often has no idea what contestants' actual performances sound like, reports People.

On an episode of "The Ellen Degeneres Show," set to air this Monday, Simon confesses that "I watch the dress run so I actually hear much, much easier what they really do sound like." His favorites? Jordin Sparks and Melinda Doolittle.

As for poor Paula? "I'm taunting Paula throughout the performance," he says smugly, glibly telling her to "say something interesting."

Party Favors...Kanye a Naughty Teen...Scotty Actor Gets Beamed Up

Kanye West's mother, Donda West, reveals in her new memoir, "Raising Kanye," that the "Jesus Walks" rapper was more than a little into porn as an adolescent. She tells of the time that he was caught bringing a raunchy magazine to school, and recounts West's teenage fascination with X-rated films. ... If all goes as planned, the remains of James Doohan, who played "Scotty" on the long-running sci-fi series "Star Trek," will sail into space today. Doohan, who died in July 2005, will join "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddeberry, whose remains were rocketed into space in 1997.

I agree with Montana Mike--she blames everyone for everything that's wrong. She chose to marry Kevin, chose to have his children. I can't imagine living with her would be any kind of picnic!!! Most people are sooooooo sick of this woman, who would pay to read more about her screwed up life?

Now wait a minute...

It's ok for a mother to write a book saying the father of her children nearly drove her to suicide; and at the same time we are kicking Alec Baldwin for calling his kid a pig?
Alec was wrong but Britney is "wrongER". (Sorry about the Bushism)

More junk from the files of TMZ.
Hey Harvey, you really scraped the bottom of the barrel when you put up this tabloid site, and chose your staff.
You're looking to create news, not investigate and report.
How lazy can you people be at TMZ?

This information about the Britney tell all comes from Star Magazine so it's probably not even true. If it is, she's even sicker then I thought. Why should it be possible when a celebrity divorces the non-celebrity spouse has to sign papers that they won't talk about the marriage but the celebrity can? Something sounds fishy to me. Why does anyone care about Britney anymore? She never could sing except when she was 10 years old. She always lipsyncs. Probably still will. She's suppose to do three concerts at the house of blues in california at the beginning of may under the name the m &m's. I'll lay odds a vocal track will be doing all the work. Who wants to pay to see that? I know I don't.

Does anyone know if there's going to be a " Hillbilly to English" translation book to go along with it ? It's going to be hard to understand a book with "smacks" and "pops" after every other word.

Brittneys' kids have enough problems with their parents public drunk'in displays of ups and downs. They don't need their mother bashing their father in a "tell-all" book. Britney should just take responsiblity for her own actions and choices and prove she can better herself. Maybe K-fed was bad for her but she choose to have 2 kids with him. People make mistakes and bad relationships can make people crazy but we're still responsible for our own actions regardless.

I will be interested to read about Britney Spears' many three ways with other women, especially those with socialites such as Melissa-Mindy Trump Hilton and Tinsley Mortimer and the notorious lesbian model Ingrid Casales.

I'am so tired of hearing about Britney. She is the one that went after Kevin when he was
in a relationship with Shar.She wasn't concerned about Shar's feelings.This going on
now with Britney is called Karma.
She is fortunate to have those sweet little boys,but she doesn't seem to realize that. As
far as her "comeback" I can't see it. There are too many better singers around.To name
a few:Alicia Keys.Christina A. Joss Stone.These women are serious about their careers
and don't make fools of themselves.BTW. Britney is not the Pop Princess anymore,those
days are over.

You are wrong--Britney is making comments about an adult. Alec abused his helpless, innocent child.. if you don't see the difference, I hope you don't have children!

Oy vey, I would be happy if we never heard about Britney again. Please, Kevin drove me to suicide, wah wah wah. She didn't seem to have a problem on their show Chaotic with him or buying him presents or taking him away from Shar Jackson. PLEASE. I just think because SHE made the mistake, she doesn't want to take responsibility. Plus I don't believe one can change right after going to rehab. If Britney did have post-partum depression shouldn't she have continued to party,drink whatever she did. For her kids sake she should have seen a doctor. Does anyone really care about their kids these days?

If she's trying to say Kevin is much like Bobby Brown, sorry I don't believe that. Kevin looked like father of the year compared to what Britney was doing. anything this girl says, i'm sorry i just cant and won't believe.

THERE'S SOMETHING TERRIBLY WRONG WHEN GOOD AUTHORS CANNOT GET THEIR WORKS EVEN CONSIDERED, LET ALONE PUBLISHED, YET THIS NAUSEATING PIECE OF CRAP IS GETTING HER STORY INTO PRINT, LIKE ANYONE GIVES A RAT'S ASS ABOUT HER. I WOULDN'T READ HER BIOGRAPHY--BUT I'D SURE ENJOY READING HER OBITUARY.
