Britney Holds Auditions: Brit was back to work Wednesday auditioning dancers for her upcoming new video, “Womanizer” at the International Dance Academy in Hollywood, People reports. The video will start shooting “very soon,” a source told the mag. Following her search for dancers, Brit enjoyed dinner at the Little Door.

Denise Richards Renewed: Fear not Denise Richards reality show fans (we know you’re out there somewhere!) — “It’s Complicated,” Denise’s reality show is returning for a second season, Us Weekly reports. “It’s coming back for another season,” Denise said at the “Passion for Pink” pre-Emmy luxury suite in LA on Tuesday. “We start filming in a few months.” Phew! We were worried there would be a lack of celebrities in the reality TV world.

“Dark Knight” Star Spotted: Aaron Eckhart, who played Harvey Dent and Two Face in this year’s biggest blockbuster, “The Dark Knight,” was spotted by Access feeling the crunch at the pump at a gas station in Hollywood Wednesday afternoon. The actor looked casual in track pants and a UCLA baseball cap. We can guess which football team Aaron will be rooting for this weekend. Go Bruins!

Jerry Seinfeld Microsoft Ads Crt+Alt+Del’ed: It appears the rest of the country was as perplexed and disappointed with the Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Gates ads as we were — and Microsoft is moving the commercials to the recycle bin, Vallywag.com reports. “All along we said we were having a teaser campaign,” a rep for the software giant told Us Weekly. “We’re getting ready to start the second phase. This was the plan all along.” No word on Justin Long’s reaction (the Mac guy), but we’re assuming he’s making the “I told you so look,” right about now.
