Keith Olbermann rounds up tabloid and entertainment news every night on “Keeping Tabs.” On Monday, Nov. 20 he said this:
Spears loses her pants
Britney Spears is moving from a parasitic low that, would be Kevin Federline, to another a parasitic low life, that would be Paris Hilton. The pair of them, and by that we mean Ms. Spears and Ms. Hilton, were seeing hoofing it up at a Club Tryst at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas over the weekend, smoking, laughing, busting a move on the dance floor.
The merriment too much, apparently, for Ms. Spears to bear while fully clothed. Here she is early in the evening, wearing a shirt and pants, and a little later on in the night, shirt in tact, but pants mysteriously absent. You can’t buy class or maybe she’s just a fan of the cable series, Pants-off Dance-off.
Ripa not a Claymate
Speaking of classy, lesson number one if you’re filling in as a guest co-host on a popular TV show and you ever want to come back, do not cheese off the talent. Lesson learned the hard way by American Idol contestant Clay Aiken, when he sat in on Regis Philbin’s chair on Friday’s edition of Live With Regis and Kelly. According to TMZ.com, the taping did not go well because the host Kelly Ripa felt that Mr. Aiken wasn’t, "respectful in any way," an opinion solidified when Mr. Aiken tried to stop her talking during one of the interviews.

KELLY RIPA, HOST, "LIVE WITH REGIS AND KELLY" : Oh that’s a no, no.
CLAY AIKEN, "AMERICAN IDOL" STAR: Oh, I’m in trouble, I should just sit here.
RIPA: No, I just don’t—I don’t know where that hand has been, honey.
