CelebritiesDirt Bag

That third installment of Bridget Jones’ Diary that you long-ago heard was a possibility is happening, by the way — and you might as well go ahead and assume that the paparazzi are now officially on Renee Zellwegger Weight Gain Watch. No word on the plot, but in an older interview Colin Firth said he had an idea of the new story: “I can tell you that Bridget and Mark can’t have children, I think that’s the way it goes on. So then she makes the huge mistake of going back to Daniel Cleaver for long enough to get pregnant. And I think he dumps her, and she’s left stranded, and guess who comes back to rescue her?” Oh, silly Bridget! [EW]

People close to Britney Spearswill not allow her to have a phone, as they believe it will only lead to her self-destruction: “One of the rules is she gave up her cell phone. That helps them keep her under control.”
Meanwhile, Brit gave Jersey Shore‘s Pauly D a lap dance last night during her Femme Fatale tour. Pauly D tweeted a photo of the pair, saying “Wow Got On Stage With@britneySpears And She Gave Me A Lap Dance !!!!! #DJPaulyDSwagg” Pauly D Swagg, indeed. [Just Jared]

Breaking News! Sesame Street has taken to Facebook and responded to the petition to get Bert and Ernie hitched on-air. They maintain that the famous duo are truly “just friends”: “They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves. Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics … they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation.” [Facebook]
