While the principals involved in the battle for Anna Nicole Smith's body duke it out in a Florida court, a stunning new video has surfaced showing a barely functional Anna Nicole Smith, stammering and stuttering, as Howard K. Stern rhapsodizes about how much money the clip will be worth.
The tape, which aired Monday night on Greta Van Susteren's show on FOX News Channel, shows an eight-months pregnant Smith, her face painted like a clown, and clearly stoned out of her mind. As she talks to a doll in a baby carriage as if it's real, Stern repeatedly says, "Is this a mushroom trip?" He then adds, "I'm kidding."

Britney - No Hair, Now Homeless?
Britney Spears is getting rid of everything she's got -- her hair, her dignity -- and now her home.
The Shaved One just bought a Beverly Hills mansion two months ago, and now she's looking to sell it, according to OK! magazine (via MSNBC). Sources tell the mag that 16-month-old Sean Preston liked living at their Malibu house better, so Brit may be moving back. She bought the six-bedroom spread for $7.2 million, and is offering it up for $7.5 million.
Meanwhile, the New York Daily News reports that Spears' new look is so radically different, that when she turned up at The Roxy on Sunday night, waiters ignored her as she sat alone in a booth. Before that, she spent some "intense discussion" time with her dad Jamie over cups of gumbo at a Cajun joint in Encino, Calif.
