Britney Spears: Adopting Chinese Twins???

  • Amy Winehouse was seen pulling something from her bra (not her beehive) and snorting it at a concert in London on Thursday. Think it was nasal spray? [Gatecrasher]

  • Oprah Winfrey is the subject of an exposé. A man claims to have tapes in which an office manager speaks about Oprah's private life and business practices and reveal "what they don't want the public to know about [Oprah]." And yet he can't find a publisher for this project, hmm. [Page Six]
  • Meanwhile, Oprah made a "secret trip" to South Africa Sunday and met with the student who claims to have been abused by a dorm matron and her parents. "Oprah looked beautiful and was so easy to talk to. It went very smoothly," the girl's father says. [People]
  • At the 20-year celebration of The Princess Bride, actress Robin Wright Penn "looked phenomenal" while former costar Cary Elwes was unrecognizable. Maybe he should have walked around saying, "As you wish!" [Page Six]

  • Us magazine asked Loveline host Dr. Drew Pinsky about Britney, and he says the fallen star is "a drug addict. We know that she is a drug addict because she's been admitted to a treatment center. You can't be admitted unless you've met criteria for addiction." He also says "It is hard to get through the sycophants who are enabling her and be able to find people around Britney who are willing to potentially sacrifice either their salary or their access to her by bringing her into treatment." [MSNBC]
