Where do broken hearts go? To TMZ.com, of course! Over the past few months, the pap-blog has been documenting Whitney Houston‘s nights on the town (many of which with sex-tape vet Ray J, who’s 17 years her junior). Today, TMZ presents the latest installment in the Whitney Leaves Place cycle, taped Thursday night, as Whit and Ray left the Beverley Hills spot Crustacean. In this one, Whit is as surly as a sidewalk without its crack, telling the paps to move aside and then taking matters into her own hands and moving them herself. Rugged! The cameras then catch up with Ray J, who leaves in a separate car after refusing to answer questions about the nature of his relationship with Whit. Oooh, a cliffhanger. Love it! [TMZ.com]
Note to famous Scientologists: When you talk about other Scientologists, we don’t believe you. We know you have an agenda to seem as normal as possible, to make up for the aliens and niacin and such.
And so, it is with ease that I call bullstuff on Jenna Elfman‘s recent comments on her Scientologist brethren Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. "Honestly, they’re happy. They have a great life and they love each other. For some reason, the media cannot experience that. They must put in things other than the simplicity of it." These "things" include gossip like Tom ordering Katie to mommy school, Tom stalking Katie as she works, Tom’s general tyranny over the relationship, and mass speculation that the entire relationship is a sham (those pesky gay rumors!).
But anyway, as far as Jenna’s words go: Lies!

Britney’s comeback is happening faster than you might think. Fresh off whatever miracle diet/workout is available only to L.A. royalty, the disgraced former queen of teen pop is apparently on a House of Blues tour, starting next week in Anaheim. According to Interweb sources, she’ll be playing some old stuff and some new stuff, and she’s booked under the name the M + M’s. Is this because she loves junk food?
It’s no Celine Dion-Elvis duet — what is, though, really? — but it is Darth Vader strangling an obnoxious movie talker. There’s something extremely gratifying about that. Maybe it’s just that it’s Friday (so thanks, Rolling Stone.) Or maybe it’s that, geez, cellphones are irritating. What do you think?

Former Chili Pepper, Rock Star: Supernova star and Carmen Electra-doer Dave Navarro has announced plans to host his own weekly hour-long Internet show, which will premiere May 17. Called Spread Entertainment, Navarro described it as a “looser version of Donahue in a nightclub.” Yes, audience members will be able to ask guests questions. But guests will be chosen on the basis of their appeal, not whether or not they’re hawking a book, album or movie. “I want to use the Internet to support artists and see things that are out there that other corporate structures aren’t allowing us to see,” Navarro says. He’s not kidding. Check out his video playlist (after the jump). If you let it go awhile, you’ll get to see the ad he shot in night-vision where he’s trussed up and groaning with a ball-gag in his mouth. Just another day in the life.
