Tale of the texts: OMG! Brit -n- Pari$ chat

With the lightning speed so familiar in Hollywood relationships, Britney Spears ditched hubby-baby daddy Kevin Federline and took up with everybody’s favorite heiress, Paris Hilton. The career comeback so anticipated by Britney fans seemed put on hold as the mother-of-two commenced hitting the clubs with party girl Paris, flashing paparazzi with her panty-free bottom and even missing out on an important recording date in Miami.

So tight were the hot new BFFs (Best Friends Forever) that Britney and Paris even got matching hair extensions, and were slated to co-host the Billboard Music Awards on Dec. 4.

Then, faster than you can say “bad press,” it was over. Britney dropped out of the Billboard gig for undisclosed reasons. She and Paris were seen partying separately. Then Paris dropped Billboard too, allegedly because of the mean jokes she’d been asked to make about her friends.

But what really happened? And what about that evening they spent together with Paris’ notorious rival Lindsay Lohan? Could a hack into their text message transcripts reveal a clue? If so, what might fans find? Hmmmmmm …
