Strike Struck: As Access reported yesterday, the writer's strike is officially over. Though we'll always love "Project Runway," "Top Chef," and "The Amazing Race," let the great scripted television commence!
Miley Proud Of Jamie Lynn: In a union of tween-solidarity, Miley Cyrus is speaking out about Jamie Lynn Spears. The "Hannah Montana" star tells Us Magazine, "She's now really excited, so I'm proud of her. I think she's done the best she can."
Brit Back In Class: For a second straight day, Britney Spears was teaching the kids of Los Angeles how to shake their groove things. She led another class of kids Tuesday at North Hollywood's Millennium Dance Complex, Us Magazine reports. They once again enjoyed some classic Madge, this time "Material Girl." A mom of one of Britney's pupils told Us that the pop star "welled up with tears" after the class. She also went on to say that Brit "is young and made some mistakes. It is obvious that she loves kids very much and that she is great with children. I will bring my daughter to every one of her classes." Brit is reportedly scheduled to teach another class on Thursday.
Brit Back To The Rack: In another possible good sign for Britney, the pop star and her mom, Lynne Spears, were spotted having a great time shopping together Tuesday at Miss Sixty shop in Los Angeles, Us reports. "Britney was in a great mood, trying things on her mom picked out," an eyewitness told the mag. The pop star reportedly bought a few tops and a pair of jeans, which she wore out of the store. Though it's not traditional therapy, retail therapy can do wonders. Keep shopping Brit!
