Britney's Publicist Confirms: Britney Is NOT Pregnant

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Despite what you may be reading on other websites, Britney Spears “is not pregnant”, her publicist, Leslie Sloane-Zelnick, confirms exclusively to PerezHilton.com.

A source very familiar to the situation tells us, “It is 99.99% unlikely that Britney is pregnant. If she is, she has kept it a secret from her mom and her family, which is very out of character for her. And, she more than likely did not tell anyone she was pregnant while shopping at a store recently, but if she did, she was probably just kidding or said that because she felt insecure after all the tabloids have been calling her fat.”

Elizabeth Arden Profits Surpass Targets Thanks To Britney

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — Cosmetics company Elizabeth Arden Inc. said Thursday that second-quarter profit rose to surpass both its own and Wall Street’s targets, helped by the launch of Britney Spears and 5th Avenue fragrances.

Arden (RDEN22.83, +1.35, +6.3%) , based in New York, saw its stock add 9% to $23.42 at one point early in the session. Shares closed up 6.3% at $22.83.

For the most recent quarter, the company said net income rose to $33.1 million, or $1.12 a share, from $31.7 million, or $1.06, a year ago. Excluding stock-option expense, earnings would have been $1.15 a share.

Sales for the three months ended Dec. 31 advanced 7.1% to $346 million from $323 million in last year’s second quarter.

Analysts polled by Thomson First Call forecast earnings, on average, of $1.07 on sales of $343.2 million.

“Better sales and operating margin drove the upside. Importantly, the company showed significant progress in reducing inventory,” said Goldman Sachs analyst Amy Low Chasen in a note to clients.

For the fiscal 2006, Arden forecast earnings of $1.20 to $1.26 a share, or $1.33 to $1.39, excluding stock-option expense. Analysts’ estimate stands at $1.23 a share.

Details About Britney's Night At The Screen Actors Guild Awards

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

The stars came out in droves for the 12th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards and the after party. The SAG Awards are a favorite of Hollywood’s acting community because since categories are voted on by peers rather than the sometimes stuffy Academy members or the mysterious Foreign Press. The SAGs are also considered good indicators for the Oscars, whose nominations will be announced tomorrow.

By 8pm, the awards had been handed out (see a rundown of the winners below) but the party was just getting started next door at the People Magazine-hosted post-show gala, where A-listers settled in and relaxed. George Clooney held court at the bar, while Nick Lachey conversed with Anna Farris, and the Desperate Housewives crew mingled throughout the beautifully-decorated tent. And despite the tremendous weight of the SAG trophy (almost 15 pounds!) winners like Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Oh and Felicity Huffman carried the prize around with pride, while Lost’s pint-sized Malcolm David Kelley struggled to hold on to his.

But the biggest buzz of the night came from the unexpected arrival of Britney Spears (with husband Kevin Federline and brother Bryan in tow) towards the party’s end. The eight-member posse lounged in a corner booth guarded by a wall of bodyguards while Britney and Kevin cutely nuzzled to themselves. Britney was feeling the music, all right, nodding her head along to songs by Prince, Gwen Stefani, and even her ex, Justin Timberlake. But it was the Pussycat Dolls’ “Don’t Cha” which got Britney off her seat and onto the dance floor (Kevin in hand), followed by her pal Madonna’s first hit, “Holiday.” Britney’s certainly got her groove back, but still made it an early night, leaving at 11:30. Awards season may be in full swing, but mommy duty beckons.

NEW YORK (AP) — Britney Spears will guest star on an episode of Will & Grace, NBC announced Tuesday.

The pop star will appear as a Christian conservative sidekick to Sean Hayes’ character, Jack, who hosts his own talk show, on the April 13 episode, the network said.

As a young girl, the 24-year-old Spears was a regular on The Mickey Mouse Club. After becoming a pop singer, she starred in the critically panned 2002 film Crossroads.
