Britney wants to promote manager to husband 

Things seem to be serious between Britney Spears and her manager-boyfriend Jason Trawick. Just one week after the pop star’s ex-husband, Kevin Federline, gave the couple his official “I think it’s great” blessing, the National Enquirer reports that Spears is ready to take a break from her life on the road and take her relationship with Trawick to the next level.

“(Britney) says she wants a man who loves her, who loves having a family, and who goes to work while she stays at home and cares for the children,” a source revealed.

Oh, and speaking of children, 3-year-old Sean Preston and 2-year-old Jayden James may not be the only kids Spears has in mind.

“Britney dreams of getting married to Jason and having his baby,” the insider added. “She would love to finally have a baby girl and be a stay-at-home mom and not to be on tour.”

According to the source, there’s just one problem with that plan — a big one. Mr. Right has a history of not making his way down the aisle.

“(Jason’s) last long-term relationship ended because he wouldn’t pop the question,” the source said.

Pitt denies ‘trouble in paradise’ rumorsThough new spins on the same old “trouble in paradise” rumors hit the headlines daily, Brad Pitt insists his relationship with Angelina Jolie is not only solid, it’s drama-free.

“The thing I am more aware of now is the passing of time — I don’t want to waste any of it, so (Angelina and I) don’t waste time arguing between us,” the actor explained to Reveal magazine. “I don’t know whether I have one day, 10 days, 10 years or another 44 years, so I don’t want to spend a moment on pettiness or bitterness.”

    TV star?

    Pitt starred on the short-lived Fox TV series "Glory Days." He played one of four high school buddies who start going in different directions, but who manage to maintain their friendship. The show lasted six episodes.

So where do all those tall tales of Brangelina battles come from? According to Pitt, the tabloids don’t require any real life actions from him or Jolie to round out the latest rumor mill.

“We just don’t really participate,” the “Inglourious Basterds” star recently told The Times of London. “It kind of goes on without us. It’s self-generating. When I was younger I would take it personally; it was such an injustice to me. As a man or as a woman I don’t know how they could sit there and do it. I mean, (the stories) are consciously fabricated and I don’t know how you could do that.”

Looking back on her public romance with married man Balthazar Getty, actress Sienna Miller is ready to admit it she regrets her actions. Well, sort of. “I do think sometimes people get morally superior without understanding situations,” she told Britain’s GQ magazine. “And the situation I got into was not ideal, but it happened and if I could go back and be more responsible, I would.” More responsible by, say, avoiding the relationship? No. “Well, I probably would be less naive about ignoring the fact that people care,” Miller clarified. … Music manager and reality TV fixture Sharon Osbourne believes her pre-plastic surgery looks landed her where she is today. “In the music business, in the '70s, girls were beautiful,” Osbourne explained in an interview with Psychologies magazine. “You were a performer, or you could be a girlfriend or groupie, but you still had to look good. I didn’t have the face or the body that opens doors… Not being beautiful was an education. My achievements are down to my looks, or lack of them… I’m not putting myself down, that’s the truth.”
