Pop queen Britney Spears has just sold her Beverly Hills home for $4.25 million. The mansion has been on sale since 2008 and was scheduled to be sold to the highest bidder, during a hearing set for today. But an anonymous buyer already offered over $ 1 million more than the starter price and the bidding was off. 2008 was a tough year for Britney Spears.

It has five bedrooms, a gorgeous master suite with two bathrooms, a fireplace and a maid’s quarter. The backyard is perfect for cocktails parties, with a pool and a garage.

It was probably expected, to some point, that their little bundle of joy, three-year old daughter Naleigh Moon, who came all the way from South Korea, was going to have a brother or a sister. Heigl has always thought about adopting. She comes from a family with a history in adoptions. Her older sister, Meg, was adopted three years before she was born, also from South Korea. Plus, Kelley was easy to convince! “Josh and I started talking about it before we were even engaged”, the actress told Scholastic Parent & Child magazine, back in February. “We have talked about having biological children as well, but we decided to adopt first. I just wanted to be a mom”, she explained. “So however we do that, it’s fine with me.

Brandy opens up about ED and how she overcame it

During an appearance on “Behind the Music”, aired on Wednesday, on VH1, R&B star Brandy opens up about an ED (eating disorder) that took away all the glamour a music star can enjoy. While talking about her new album, “Two Eleven”, the Grammy winner revealed that her obsession with staying thin was more important than the showbiz glory. “I wanted to be so thin”, Brandy recalls about her life in the late ‘90s. At the times she was on the peak of her career, winning a Grammy for the hit “The Boy Is Mine”, featuring Monica. Despite the fame, the fans and all the glam that comes with it, Brandy, now 33, remembers that staying thin was her “main thing”.” So I started not taking care of myself — not eating properly, not eating at all, diet pills, regurgitating, and all of these things that girls do”. Brandy, who is now the mother of a 9-year-old, says that being the hottest star is just façade. “I’m here to tell you I was making so much money — I was omnipresent — and I was the unhappiest teenager probably in the world.” She reveals that she had lost 20 pounds (from 125 to 105 pounds) and, at the time, she was weighing herself every five minutes. People were telling her she looked great, so that caused  an inner conflict. She...
