• Repless: Hours after Britney Spears's lawyer quits, her management at The Firm bails, too, saying, "We believe Britney is enormously talented, and has made a terrific record. But current circumstances have prevented us from properly doing our job." Circumstances are a bitch.
• Touchy, touchy: CBS Evening News has allegedly responded to several critical e-mails toward Katie Couric's coverage in Iraq with condescending replies: "Actually most intelligent people were very impressed by the quality of our reports from Iraq and Syria ... imagine you got your information from a blog somewhere..." Pshh, who reads blogs for news?
• Sexy slap: J.T. smacks at a photographer while entering a building with Jessica Biel. The blow doesn't injure the cameraman, so haters (including the stunned photographer) question Timberlake's manhood.
• Dirty magazines: Former Us Weekly staffer Jill Ishkanian has filed a $55 million lawsuit against Wenner Media, alleging her former bosses attempted to ruin her (in one claim, the former West Coast bureau chief allegedly threatened, "I will destroy you!") after leaving the magazine.
