It's not been a good month for poor old Britney Spears, whose joy at confirming the pregnancy we've all been suspecting for weeks quickly turned to tears as her parenting of the baby she already has was heavily criticized.
First of all, Britney was pictured driving with Sean Preston strapped into a front-facing baby seat – something not recommended for young babies. Bizarrely, Brit was also wearing curlers in her hair – another frantic dash from the paparazzi, or just a bit of forgetfulness? Who knows….
Just to make matters worse, Britney then stumbled and almost dropped poor Sean whilst exiting her car in New York City. A quick-acting bodyguard stepped in to prevent disaster, but Britney was heard muttering "This is why I need a gun" and was later pictures in tears, clearly distressed by the incident.
Elsewhere in Hollywood, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise were out and about at yet another ball game. Katie, whose low-cut jeans gave spectators a flash of the baby-belly she's apparently determined to lose before her summer wedding, looked healthy after the birth of baby Suri, but rumours have been circulating that all is not well in the TomKat household, with Katie said to suffering a bout of post-natal depression.
Tom's eldest two kids, meanwhile, are probably feeling pretty depressed themselves after dad banned them from watching TV or playing computer games – ever. Apparently Isabella and Connor are still allowed to watch movies ("within reason") and read books – thank goodness for that, then! Just to restore some balance to the universe, Princes William and Harry admitted to being addicted to "trash TV" this week – much to dad Prince Charles's horror.
Ashlee Simpson is still refusing to confirm whether or not she's had a nose job, although recent pictures of the star would seem to confirm the rumors to be true. Sister Jessica, meanwhile, may be disturbed to hear that soon-to-be-ex husband, Nick Lachey, has been seen getting cosy with Brit stat Natasha Beddingfield.
Meanwhile, over in the UK, Paul McCartney announced his separation from second wife Heather Mills this week. Not so interesting, you might think – until you consider that, as one of the richest men in the world, Heather could stand to walk away with a cool $400,000 million payout. Now that's what you get when you refuse to sign a prenup…
Good news, finally, for Nicole Kidman. She finally announced her engagement to country singer and fellow Aussie Keith Urban this month – and has never looked happier.
