Britney Upstaged by Paris at B-Day Bash?

12/3/2007 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears had a little birthday party Saturday night -- but who should swoop in to steal the spotlight? None other than ex-BFF Paris Hilton!

OK! magazine reports that Brit landed at a Bel Air mansion for a private party, which she quickly turned into her own 26th birthday bash. Accompanied by a "handful of guests," a cake was brought out, and the bday song was sung. But it was lights out on the Brit-party once Paris arrived, getting more pap love than Spears did.

Turns out the pair actually decamped together to Brit's fave sauna-stop, the Four Seasons hotel, for more champagne and picture-posing. The universe, remarkably, is still intact.

Variety also says that Leno was "caught off guard" by staff anger when his penury was revealed.

I'm not sure what you seen TMZ that the rest of the world didn't see but I seen something totally different than you. I know you love your little sex kitten Paris and all but she walked behind Britney the entire night with her lip to the ground. She barely smiled and looked lost, yes Paris. Then the walk out to Britney's SUV, LOL, Britney got into her vehicle and shut the door on poor little Paris. BWAHAHAHAHAH
This is what the footage showed, spin it how you want to. Paris then ran to her SUV in tears and pretended to put on mascara. Well she didn't cry but it sounded great, I can lie if TMZ does. It's okay we all have our bad days Paris.

Why would Leno pay his writers? Why would any of them? They chose to go on strike, stopping shows from filming, and there are no consequences. What bargaining chip do they have if they aren't out any money? They could continue to go on with this stupid strike forever, being paid to sit at home. Crap! They should fire all of them, and rehire new ones, that aren't big babies. If you don't like your job, easy enough to find another one. Quit your bitching.

Jay Leno gives huge amounts of cash to charity. Everything he makes outside of his Tonight Show paycheck he donates.

So just because TMZ decides he owes his staff something for a strike he didn't cause doesn't make him cheap or selfish. His people should be POed at the studios and the union, not Jay.

So, why don't YOU pay them, Harvey? I have no doubt you'd pony up for YOUR staff, right?

of course she is happy without her kids. she's too selfish and sick in the head to care about anything but herself. i hope it comes back to haunt her, just like it comes back to anyone who acts this way. karma's just around the corner. paris needs to stay away from her and concetrate on making her life a positive one and i'm nota big paris fan per se.

SuziON, I love X17 also. To many angry people like to come to this site and argue and bash people for the hell of it. Britney will always have more fans than TMZ.

I miss the old days when stars were stars, and they had to work to get there. Today's society with Paris and Britney is just pathetic. No talent, morons get all the worlds attention. Something is really wrong, and what does this say about us as a society?
