Britney Spears wants a $1,200 chandelier for her new baby’s room.
The pregnant crooner — or some prankster pretending to be her — has registered online for thousands of dollars worth of baby gifts at Petit Tresor, the swank L.A. kiddie store favored by celebs. “Oh, it’s not a fake, she’s having a baby shower soon and has told friends that they can order gifts from the site,” a source tells the Scoop, adding, “It’s not like she’s expecting her friends to buy everything for the baby. She’s already spent like $30,000 at the store.”
And the accessories and furniture strongly suggest that, as rumored, Spears is expecting a girl: although the chandelier features little airplanes, there’s a preponderance of pink and frilly goodies among the merchandise.
New claim to fameFaye Resnick is back.
The woman who gained notoriety as the best friend of the late Nicole Simpson has gotten into the interior decorating business, says a source, and has signed up several high profile clients, including work on Nicky Hilton’s new hotels. Paris Hilton’s kid sister is opening two hotels, both to be called the Nicky O, in Miami and Chicago.
“She’s got surprisingly good taste,” says a source. “I don’t know what she’s doing with the hotels, but I’ve seen some of her residential work and it’s contemporary and eclectic.”
Notes from all overElijah Blue Allman claims that back when his mom, Cher, was dating Val Kilmer, the moody actor gave him a scalp as a present. A Native American asked for the scalp to be returned so it could be buried properly, but Allman declined. ... Madonna is performing in Moscow, but will not — contrary to reports — be meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Russian reports have quoted Putin’s office flatly and emphatically denying articles claiming that the two would get together for a chat. ... Some Mariah Carey fans are grousing that when she played the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut recently her show lasted barely an hour — with time out for multiple costume changes. Then there was that diva moment when she told a crew member “Get that light off me you dummy.” Perhaps realizing that her microphone was on, she quickly added, “Oops, just kidding.”
