Britney Spears wants to end her feud with Christina Aguilera. And it’s not just because she’s a nice girl, says a source.
The newlywed pop princess has written a letter to her rival, suggesting they become friends.
“The letter went on about how pretty and rested Aguilera looks lately,” says an insider, who adds that Spears may have an ulterior motive.
“Britney really wants to get into production and become a major music mogul,” says the insider. “She figures that a shrewd businesswoman needs all the friends she can get — and there’s no point having Christina as an enemy.”

Clooney shot off a letter, challenging O’Reilly to join him and the other celebs in the fundraiser. Yesterday, the “Ocean’s Twelve” star fired off another letter to O’Reilly, prodding him to sign on. “It’s as simple as this,” Clooney wrote. “You’re either with this joint effort or against it.”
O’Reilly’s rep says the second note was unnecessary and that the pundit had announced on his radio show that he planned to join the effort about two hours before Clooney’s second letter was sent. “Unfortunately,” Mr. Clooney will be in Los Angeles and I’ll be in New York,” the Fox man said on the “O’Reilly Factor” last night. “So we’ll just have to continue being long distance penpals — although he’s welcome on the Factor anytime.”
