Though the party featured a live appearance from Diddy and plenty of gawking at arm-locked re-BFF?s Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton, talk was aflutter about pop chanteuse Britney Spears filing for divorce from her husband of two years, Kevin Federline. One reason for all the gossip included the presence of a slim Shar Jackson, former ?Moesha? star and mother to two other of K-Fed?s babies. Though Shar passed through the red carpet without giving interviews, she did tell Access Hollywood inside the event that despite the announcement she ?wasn?t going to miss the Playstation party.?So what did the stars have to say about the news of Britney?s split? Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean, who knows the singer and is also labelmates with her on Jive Records, offered words of encouragement. ?My advice to her is to pray about it and to reach out to family and friends and loved ones,? he said last night. ?Keep your head up. It?s not the end of the world and just look at yourself and go, ?You?re no better and you?re no worse than anyone else.? She?s a trooper. She?s a mom. If she can do that and still make a record right now, she can do anything and if she needs any advice or anything, give me a call.?A newcomer to the glare of the camera eye, ?Idol? runner up Katharine McPhee said she was pleased to see pictures of Britney looking trim and sprightly, skating at Rockefeller yesterday. ?I love it. I think it?s fabulous. I know she went through [a lot]. We all watched that interview she did with Matt Lauer and how difficult this whole thing has been with paparazzi so I think it?s great,? Katharine said. ?I think she needs to move on and find herself again.?Despite going through his own public split with now ex-wife, former Playmate Nikki Ziering, ?90210? star Ian Ziering was at a loss for words about the news. ?I have no advice,? he shrugged. ?Good luck [to her],? he added.A surprising figure at the event, political satirist Bill Maher, wondered aloud about the attention being focused on the split in the wake of the recent election. ?I think that on Election Day, it?s hilarious that you ask me that,? he smiled, before turning back to face Access Hollywood and adding, ?I wish her the best of luck.?Funnyman actor David Arquette, however, had the most impartial advice of the night. ?It?s crazy because all the Hollywood aside, they?re people and it?s a relationship and it?s always hard,? he said. ?There?s a lot of stuff people have to deal with so I wish them both the best
