Britney's Hot Lawyer is Back!

6/24/2008 2:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Laura Wasser, Britney SpearsIt's official: Britney Spears is sane again. The lawyer who quit Brit when she was crazy is coming back, hot as ever.

Britney walked into court today with Laura Wasser -- who, you'll recall, is the one who scored joint custody for Brit even as she was melting down. Wasser quit the case after Spears repeatedly ignored her advice. For Wasser to return, it's a signal that the Brit ship is back on an even keel -- kinda sorta.

As for the hearing -- the Commish awarded Britney overnight visitation with her JJ and SPF. Pack your PJs, boys!

The Commish said he was pleased with the progress made on both sides.


Cribtastic!

Celebs sure know how to live it up in style. Check out some big pimpin' celebrity homes.

Linda Hogan Can't Even Call 911 Right

It takes a special kind of person to call 911 and get reprimanded by the operator who is trying to help you. Linda Hogan is just that special.

Hulk's soon-to-be ex called the cops back on May 22, claiming the Hulkster was camped outside her house, when a court order -- she claims -- prevented him from doing so. According to the police report, Linda was leaving her house when she spotted Hulk driving towards it -- so she decided to follow him!

So when she called 911, and explained she was following the man she claimed was harassing her, the 911 operator scolded her, saying, "Ma'am, ma'am -- stop following him!"

The case was closed on June 2 and no charges were filed.

Shaq Attacks Kobe: You Ruined My Marriage!

You've never seen a Shaq Attack like this.
Shaq: Click to watch
Shaquille O'Neal took the mic at a NYC club last night, unleashing a freestyle verbal assault directed at his arch-enemy Kobe Bryant -- blaming his former teammate for ruining his marriage and imploring him to "Tell me how my ass tastes."

After spending several verses shredding Kobe apart for losing in the NBA playoffs, Shaq drops the line, "I'm a horse, Kobe ratted me out, that's why I'm getting divorced."

Launch photosThe line most likely references a comment Kobe made during his infamous 2003 rape case, when he told Colorado police that he "Should have done what Shaq does ... Shaq would pay his women not to say anything." The two became famously bitter rivals after the incident.

Calls to Kobe's reps were not returned.


Violent Surfers Shred Paps Over McConaughey

Private security was hired to patrol the beach where Matthew McConaughey surfs -- but that didn't stop another brutal beach beatdown from taking place yesterday between a band of violent locals and the paparazzi.

On Sunday, after a beachgoer chucked a beer bottle at one of the paps on the shore, an all-out brawl took place by the water -- ending with some badly busted-up faces and a lot of ruined camera equipment. This followed a brawl on Saturday in which one photog had to use a tripod to defend himself.

Though the L.A. County Sheriffs Department eventually showed up, no arrests were made.

Celeb Shred Fest!

It's not just pro surf gods like Kelly Slater that are getting in on the board action. The stars -- when not being defended by pap-fighting beach goers -- wanna piece too. Click to see who's got skills and who just spills.

I have had enough of Britney. She is a mess, FAT and an unfit Mother. She shouldn't be allowed to have her children.

Well i think Birtney Spears is only putting on a good act really to get her kids back from Kevin she will do whatever it takes, and do good for now , but watch as soon as she gets them back she will go right back partying again and useing drugs i think.. I don't think she is stable really yet in the mind because look at her pics when her and her dad came back to the airport from being back home for her sisters new baby, at the airport she started to cry when the people all started to take pics of her, she could not handle it .. So what makes you think then if she could not handle that , she would be able to handle taking care of two kids as young as they are and so on for many years until they are 18 years old .. it's hard work to take care of kids and to be Britney Spears really .. Her life is soooo crazy !!! But then on the other hand i don't think the kids being with Kevin is any better really too... Those poor little boys ugh ...

I don't understand why Shaq is upset with Kobe for his wife divorcing him. Kobe spoke the truth and admitted everything. Even tho I feel Kobe's wife wouldnt have left him anyways with all that money he's makin and that big rock on her finger. Shaq would still be hiding behind the secret if Kobe did not say anything. Shaq is just mad cuz he got busted.

I got no love for Britney, but I hope she had received the counseling neccessary to realize that these young years of a childs life ARE THE BEST and you can never get them back. Once they go to school, it's not the same.

I don't think they should give the custody to brittany at all unless they really are 100% positive that she has changed. If I were the judge I'd probably just be on the safe side and leave the custody of the children alone for right now and just have kevin federline take care of them for right now. Just until this judge of the case sees that brittany has changed but he has to see it himself.
