    Come on, you know you've seen 'em.

    Britney Spears' private parts, that is. And if you haven't, you've seen a photo of her getting out of a car, a black line where her privates should be, on websites too nice to bare her all.

    But just because she spent some unfortunate time as an amateur flasher, that doesn't mean Spears is either a sexual harasser or a bad mom. Alas, she is, however, pretty rich...

    SPEARED: Britney's former bodyguard sues for sexual harassment, claiming she purposely showed him her genitals and said, "You know you liked it." (Weird, we were sure it was some nasty blogger out there who showed off Brit's bits and gloated about it...). The dude also says he witnessed some heinous mothering on her part, accusations that did not check out once upon a time when actual authorities looked into it, and Team Spears is out in full force. We're thinking Britney is legitimately back in business these days (minus the occasional hair disaster) and it must just be her turn for a spin on the Lindsay-Paris-Britney lazy Susan of trouble.

    L'AMOUR: Halle Berry and her Dark Tide costar Olivier Martinez spend time in Paris, looking snuggly. Ex Gabriel Aubry is also in town, spending time with their daughter. Don't cha wish your hook-up was hot like these?

    BALLOON BOY: Justin Bieber, who's 16, not 6, almost gets in trouble with the law for nailing a state trooper in the crotch with a water balloon at the Maryland State Fair. Almost.

    FAREWELLS: Robert Schimmel may have been too much for The Tonight Show but he was perfect for The Howard Stern Show, where he was a VIP. The comedian, a 60-year-old cancer survivor who was awaiting a liver transplant, dies of complications from injuries suffered in a car crash...Rich Cronin, lead singer of '90s pop-hop group LFO who penned the tune "Summer Girls," dies at 36 after a five-year battle with leukemia...Glenn Shadix, most memorable as a snooty decorator in Beetlejuice, dies at 58 after hitting his head in a fall.

    BACK ON TOP: Not that George Clooney was ever not on top in the hearts and minds of America, but his spy thriller, The American, while not a blockbuster is his first No. 1 movie at the box office since forever, minus the capers he's starred in with Brad Pitt, including Burn After Reading.

    A MIGHTY HEART: Angelina Jolie, in Pakistan earlier this week to meet with flood victims, is one of many who expresses outrage against a Florida preacher whose small congregation planned, on Sept. 11, to burn however many copies of the Quran they could get their hands on. After Jolie—and millions of others— expressed their disapproval, the madness is canceled.

    PASS INTERFERENCE: Tom Brady appears at practice looking fine not long after his Audi and a van collide in Boston, an accident that necessitated the Jaws of Life for the other guy. Witnesses are saying Brady was behind the wheel, not on-the-record authorities.

    PARIS MATCH: The winner of Paris Hilton's My New BFF, whom Hilton accused of turning into a fame whore, says it was Hilton's wild ways that were too much for her.
