X-Factor judges give themselves a break.
“X-Factor” judge Demi Lovato’s sense of humor will certainly help her get through the next few weeks of recovery. The pop singer recently joked on Twitter about the cast on her broken right leg as a result of an accidental fall in her Los Angeles home. Her former co-judge, Britney Spears however, might be breaking a leg of a different kind as she is rumored to be very close to getting her own live show in Las Vegas. Spears’ ex-fiancé and former agent Jason Trawick, along with her manager Larry Rudolph are supposedly behind negotiations to feature a Britney show at Planet Hollywood. And if that falls through, Spears may well be headed over to one of the Caesar’s Palace casinos, despite a casino spokesperson reportedly denying the possibility. Sources are adding that while a Sin City Spears engagement may be a smart next step for the pop singer post-“X-Factor,” she won’t be receiving as hefty a payday nor be required to commit five nights a week as her possible Vegas neighbors – Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Rod Stewart and Elton John.

Bobby Kristina vs. Cissy?
Someone call Dr. Phil! There is a war brewing in the Houston family that is slowly simmering into a full blown verbal feud. In one corner, Cissy Houston, the late Whitney Houston’s mother, is dutifully doing the TV rounds, starting with a candid chat with Oprah Winfrey on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” last month to promote her book, Remembering Whitney: My Story of Love Loss and the Night the Music Stopped and, perhaps to exercise some healing after losing her only daughter. In the other corner, granddaughter Bobby Kristina is quite busy ‘respectfully’ denouncing her grandmother’s book as well as her right to write it, on Twitter.


Did Chris Brown pass up community service?
Singer Chris Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos is reportedly chewing out Los Angeles County District Attorney prosecutors for allegedly defaming his client when they filed a motion to revoke his probation for beating and choking singer and girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. The District Attorney is alleging that Brown violated his probation by lying about the amount of required community service he actually performed in Virginia and then submitting fraudulent records to support the lie. The D.A. is reportedly seeking another 180 days of community service labor to be performed by Brown. According to TMZ, it has also been revealed that on most of his community service days, Brown was reportedly minimally supervised at best. Brown recently made an appearance in Los Angeles County Court to face the allegations with a supportive Rihanna reportedly seated in the front row and blowing him kisses. Let no lawyer tear asunder what two singers have put together.

Whoa! Grammy dress code in effect!
A recent wardrobe advisory put out by the CBS Network’s standards and practices department is warning Grammy performers to cover up or else! According to a memo leaked by Deadline, celebs are being told to “be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered,” and that “thong type costumes are problematic.” As if that weren’t specific enough, the memo continues to go into detail, spelling out exactly what will not be tolerated (or back to the corner for you, you naughty celebrity!): “Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure.” Performers are also being cautioned to avoid flashing any commercial branding or foreign language symbols suggesting obscenity, however, nothing has yet been said about the provocative wardrobe march that is sure to sashay down the red carpet. The 55th Annual Grammy Awards will be held on February 10, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The show will be broadcast on CBS at 8:00 PM.

Barbara Walters itching to get back to The View.
Revered broadcaster and “The View” co-host Barbara Walters is still recovering from chicken pox and is said to be three weeks out from returning to her co-host’s chair at the popular morning television talk show. Walters was recently hospitalized for observation after suffering an accidental fall while attending a party on January 19 to celebrate U.S. President Barrack Obama’s second inauguration in Washington, DC. According to Walters’ statement three days later, her fall was a faint induced by the chicken pox which she was unaware she had and later learned she had contracted via contact with someone suffering with shingles.

Stressed-out Kim Kardashian?
Kim Kardashian’s (“Kourtney & Kim Take Miami”) 72-days of wedded un-bliss have been plaguing the reality star for well over a year. Now ex-hubby Kris Humphries is reportedly using her expectant mother status for boyfriend Kanyé West as the fodder for his latest claim that not only did Kardashian defraud him with their marriage, but that her unplanned pregnancy is merely a tactic to fast-track their divorce and bias the legal proceedings. Humphries has been steadfastly arguing for an annulment based on marriage fraud. Kardashian, meanwhile, is due to give birth in July and it would seem that the stress of the divorce wrangling is slowly taking a toll on her pregnancy – according to reports by Kardashian’s doctors, who allegedly were called in the middle of the night to Kardashian’s home to examine her for severe pain. Adding to the supposed stress is Kardashian’s reported fear of gaining too much weight during her pregnancy – sources say she heads to the gym for daily workouts with her personal trainer Tracy Anderson, whose celebrity clientele includes Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow.
