The feud brewing between Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, which was allegedly sparked after Paris passed right by the birthday girl at Brit's recent bash, just got a little nastier. According to the Daily Star, Britney is threatening Paris: Shape up as friend or pay the price.
“Britney and her pals wrote to Paris and told her they are hearing rumors of a new sex-tape scandal, similar to the ‘One Night In Paris’ footage her ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon put on the Web four years ago,” an insider told the Daily Star. “The letter also claims the tape shows footage of Paris locking lips with one of Britney’s female friends at a party.”
The correspondence wasn’t just FYI, as it warned Paris, “If she continues being rude to people, the footage will be leaked online.” The source added, “Britney and her pals also end their note by telling Paris they look forward to hearing back from her.”
But Paris isn’t exactly shaking in her stylish boots over the threat, a source close to the heiress assured DS. “It’s obvious Britney and her bratty pals are being silly. Paris laughed when she got the letter, supposedly from Britney and said it was ‘crap.’ ”
Chris Rock bashes Oprah’s pal
Oprah Winfrey’s best friend Gayle King caught a Chris Rock performance in Las Vegas, but she didn’t expect to be part of the act. The National Enquirer revealed that’s just what happened when Gayle brought a date along for the show.
“Chris went on for about 10-minutes about Gayle and her new friend Dean, who is considerably younger than her, and it go so bad she told her date she was leaving and they stormed out,” a source explained.

While it’s unlikely Oprah will make him disappear, the Queen of Talk isn’t happy with the funnyman. “Oprah understands it was all in good fun, but Chris hurt someone she cares about very much,” an insider told the Enquirer. “Oprah says she plans to talk to Chris about it, but the damage has been done, and even a heart-felt apology won’t erase Gayle’s humiliation.”
LiLo tells sis: ‘Don’t end up like me!’
With her own downward spiral behind her, Lindsay Lohan now fears for her little sister, Ali. Star Magazine reveals the rehabbed actress is worried about the example she’s set and is urging her sibling, “Don’t end up like me!”
“(Lindsay) knows that Ali idolizes her, but she also realizes that she was a bad influence on her for years,” Lindsay’s pal told Star. “Lindsay’s afraid that Ali will follow in more than just her footsteps onto the screen. She doesn’t want her to experience addiction, rehab or jail, like she did!”
Apparently recent photos of Ali, shot for mom Dina’s new E! reality show, concerned Lindsay. “She’s disturbed by how the makeup made Ali look 25,” the source said. “Lindsay wanted to know if their mom convinced her to take the sexy photos, but Ali told her that she loved the look.”
That coupled with Ali’s tiny diva demands for advice on personal assistants, stylists and an entourage left LiLo shocked. “Lindsay doesn’t fault Ali, since she’s just following everyone’s lead — the way Lindsay did — but she wants to fix this while there’s still a chance.”
