LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans
Britney & Her Dance Crew: Britney released new photos of rehearsals for “The Circus Starring Britney Spears,” on Tuesday and the pics give fans a sneak peak of what appears to be one hot show. A dozen dancers surround Brit, striking various seductive poses. She’s also seen wearing a bikini top in one shot, looking better than ever. She might be rehearsing hard, but Brit is also taking some time to relax. “I had a nice, restful evening and got a great massage last night,” Britney wrote on her Twitter Monday night. We think Brit’s earned it! See more pics of her rehearsing HERE!
A Drew & Justin Reunion?: Speaking of comebacks, are former couple Drew Barrymore and Justin Long really just that into each other? People spotted the former duo earlier this week at LA’s new hotspot - h.wood - slow-dancing, hugging and laughing. “They looked like they were both genuinely happy to be with each other; they were super cute together,” an onlooker told the mag. But according to Drew, “Justin and I are absolutely just friends,” she told the mag. Convenient timing for their upcoming romantic comedy, “He’s Just Not That Into You.”
“City” Girl Wants To Be Real Actress: Reality TV is not exactly the best place to launch an acting career, with the exception of Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson, but Olivia Palermo from MTV’s “The City” is reportedly hoping her semi-scripted “Hills” spin-off helps her develop some real acting chops. “Olivia was talking about how she wants to be a serious actress but that acting is so much harder than she thought it would be,” a source told The New York Post’s Page Six. The NYC socialite confessed her big screen dreams to the paper, saying, “I’m shooting ‘The City’ to get used to being in front of the camera.” We ‘d like to direct Olivia’s attention to Audrina Patridge’s upcoming “Into The Blue 2,” as a window into her future.
No Lara Croft For Angelina: We can’t imagine Olivia Palermo battling bad guys as she searches for buried treasure, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, a new reboot of the “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” franchise will be searching for a new actress, as Angelina is out. The third installment of the popular video game-turned-blockbuster will reportedly introduce new missions, love interests and villains, but hopefully keeping Lara’s trademark hot-pants outfit… Megan Fox, are you busy?
