Is Britney Spears the newest judge on The X Factor? The singer is reportedly in final talks to join Simon Cowell's singing competition show, reports The Hollywood Reporter. After a lackluster first season, judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were booted from the show. On paper, hosting an L.A.-based reality show is a good fit for the mother of two. Spears, who has sold 33 million albums, is undergoing extensive media training for the show. No word yet if she'll be able to command a huge salary like Jennifer Lopez's $20M American Idol paycheck. Spears isn't the first pop star approached to join the show. Janet Jackson has already passed, and it was rumored that before her death Whitney Houston was in talks with the show.
Though Spears' ex, Justin Timberlake, proposed to Jessica Biel over the holidays last year, we've yet to seen the engagement ring... until now. The couple, who lately have been shy with the press, finally went out in public with the ring — a "humongous square-cut diamond." Now we just have to wait for the wedding date.
Dennis Quaid's wife, Kimberly Buffington-Quaid has filed for divorce after 8 years. TMZ has the details of the divorce. Buffington claims the marriage "has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities ... that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation." While she gets to keep the main residence and Mercedes, Quaid is holding onto a Cadillac Escalade and condo. The two will share time with their twins... And the couple's Range Rover.
Angelina Jolie's right leg took the day off Thursday when Jolie attended the 3rd Annual Women in the World event at Lincoln Center in Manhattan. Jolie, a UNHCR ambassador, spoke about the plight of Somali refugees at the event.
And in celebrity ginger news, Lindsay Lohan is back to being a redhead.
