Marc S. Malkin of The Insider is now reporting that Britney Spears has turned down a lucrative offer to replace Christina Applegate in Broadway’s Sweet Charity.
Malkin quotes a source as saying that Spears seriously considered the offer, but ultimately turned it down because she did not want to uproot her family to New York or make a long commitment.
It had been reported earlier by The Insider first, then Access Hollywood that Britney Spears was in negotiations to join the musical. The New York Post then reported that if Spears signed on, the entire production would be moved to the larger Hilton Theater.
Sweet Charity currently plays The Al Hirschfeld Theater and stars Christina Applegate, Denis O’Hare and Ernie Sabella.
Charity Hope Valentine is a taxi dancer with a heart of gold. She dreams of meeting the right man and settling down, but keeps waisting her affections on losers. Her luck starts to change when she meets a suave Italian movie star, but things really start to look up when she runs into a shy but sweet guy in a night-school elevator. Could this finally be her Prince Charming?

BRITNEY SPEARS’ one-time love rival SHAR JACKSON has lashed out at the paparazzi fascination surrounding her children – because it has turned them into kidnap targets.
Pictures of Spears’ stepchildren, KORI and KALEB, have appeared in tabloids throughout the world ever since their father, KEVIN FEDERLINE, started dating the pop superstar in April 2004 and the kids’ mother fears for their safety.
She says, “I was in the grocery store one day with Kori… and these two older women are behind us. All I hear is, ‘Oh my God, that’s Kori.’
“I turned around, like, ‘Are you for real?’ I was appalled.
“Paparazzi and other people decide that they want to take pictures and put them on the cover of magazines and things of that nature.
“In all honesty, it makes my children kidnap targets and all kinds of other stuff. People should not know what my babies look like.”

I went to a few stores today (HMV, Virgin Megastore, Woolworths, Sainsbury’s and Tesco) and none of them had a copy of “B In The Mix” in stock.
Apparently though, HMV and Virgin are both stocking it, but at an extremely high price. It’s £16.99 in HMV stores! I would recommend buying it online if you live in the UK.
Also, there has been nothing to update about over the last few days, but hopefully there will be some new stuff soon!
Britney Spears can’t wait to show off her new slimming body as she bounced back into shape after the birth of her son, Sean Preston.
Britney Spears is reportedly in negotiations to make a post-pregnancy fitness video, where she will proudly flaunt her flat tummy.
Britney Spears, who has allegedly shed a lot of her baby weight, wants to help other mums shift the pregnancy pounds.
Pop diva and is said to be lining up a host of celebrity mothers to star in the video.
“It’s a bit of a sparse class at the moment, so Brit’s desperately trying to find other well-known new mums to star in it,” Britney Spears’s sources shared with Daily Star (UK) newspaper.
Earlier this month Britney Spears slammed rumours that she had a tummy tuck to help her get back in shape.
Britney Spears, who is married to Kevin Federline whom she happily hugs in their first official post-pregnancy photos, has also dismissed speculation she is depressed.
“She is not depressed, nor has she had a tummy tuck. She is a 23-year-old mum who was in amazing shape before she got pregnant and was able to get back in shape after the baby arrived,” Leslie Sloane Zelnick, Britney Spears’s rep, was quoted as saying.

Note that this supposed “Britney source” told this to the Daily Star, one of the UK’s most infamous rumour mills!
The album is currently #12 on iTunes USA.
As you know, the album was also made available on iTunes UK on Monday. It is currently at #24, but rememeber, if you want Britney to get a high position in the official chart next week, you will need to buy the actual album when it’s released instead of downloading!
Forget the turkey. When Britney Spears and Kevin Federline prepared to host their families at their Malibu home for what the singer calls “a pretty traditional Thanksgiving dinner” this year, the star attraction was bound to be the couple’s own little butterball, 11-week-old Sean Preston. Britney’s plan for her first Thanksgiving as a mom? Plenty of resting. “We will probably watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade on TV in the morning,” says Spears, “and then spend the afternoon hanging out with family – and eating, of course!”
Alas, Sean Preston is a wee bit young to sink is gums into turkey and all the fixin’s. But the rest of the family are set to feast on a menu of “my favourite southern-style home cooked specialities,” says Louisiana native Spears – including cornbread dressing, giblet gravy, sweet potato crunch, broccoli casserole, sweet tea and pecan pie and New Orleans-style bread pudding with hot rum sauce.
The cozy holiday follows the family’s bustling trip to New York City Nov.17-19, during which Spears, 24, and Federline, 27, shopped, enjoyed a parents’ night out at hotspot Marquee and took in the Broadway musical “Sweet Charity”. (Spears has been offered the title role in the show. but neither she nor the show’s producers will comment.)
Back in Malibu, Spears’ current project, apart from motherhood, has been helping to set up the Spears Family Hurricane Relief Foundation to aid victims of Hurricane Katrina. “It will assist in the rebuilding of homes, removal of trees and debris, fixing roofs, support after-school programs and provide clothing,” says Spears, who was moved by accounts of friends and family in the region. She is also counting her blessings and already looking ahead to Sean Preston’s first Christmas. After the last of the pie has been polished off, “we will ask everyone to help us with the finishing touches with our Christmas decorations around the house,” she says. “I already started putting up a few of the decorations myself because I couldn’t wait!”

The group were at the gated beach area for less than 30 mins before getting into the couple’s new black Audi A8 Quattro car and headed off home back to their son.
