Keith Olbermann rounds up tabloid and entertainment news every night on “Keeping Tabs.” On Wednesday, Jan. 17 he said this:

There is breaking news to report: Britney Spears is not pregnant.  “In Touch Weekly” had reported she might be pregnant, according to friends, who said they were close to Miss Spears.  How could the friends tell she was pregnant?  She’s heavier, but that’s not it.  It’s the sparkle in her eye.  She always gets that sparkle when she’s pregnant. 

Early this afternoon, however, a Spears’ representative at Jibe Records told Spears is not pregnant.  Our sources, by the way, say the sparkle may be new contacts.  And breaking another big celebrity headline. 

This time it’s Lindsay Lohan and she’s going to rehab.  A representative confirms the trip to rehab in a written statement from Miss Lohan.  I have made a proactive decision to take care of my personal health.  I appreciate your well wishes and ask that you please respect my privacy at this time. 

She is using Proactive?  There is no mention of what she’s rehabbing from.  But last month it was Lohan’s mother who revealed her daughter was attending AA meetings. 

Speaking of inexplicable celebrities, with his tell all book, “If I Did It,” on the shelf, and not the book shelf, O.J. Simpson is now fueling offers for yet another tomb.  Simpson attorney Yale Gallanter telling ABC News that his phone has been ringing off the hook with offers since the cancellation of the Judith Regan, Harper Collins, “If I Did It” deal. 

This time Simpson wants to write a non-fiction account of his life with his murdered wife Nicole Brown.  According to attorney Gallanter, the proceeds of this book would go to the families of the victims, and "If we do this project, it will be done the right way, very tastefully."  Something new for Mr. Simpson.
