They may as well have called it "Everybody Loves Britney." Turns out MTV viewers either had a soft spot or a hard-on for the triple-Moonman-winning mama, who was onstage so often she shoulda just pulled up a chair next to the mic. The slimmed-down, sparkling pop star thanked God, her babies and her fans for her Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Best Video of the Year wins. Think it woulda been out of line to thank us?

It was the goss rags and bitchy blogs who kept the babe in business when she was on her Starbucks sabbatical. And most deserving of a shout-out? Stylist and Daily 10 regular Kim Vo, who finally made B.S.'s locks look not only presentable, but enviable. Damn if she didn't look more natural than the futuristic vamp look Christina Aguilera stole from Donatella Versace.

To obnoxiously pretty ourselves up for Sunday night's shenanigans, we checked out the Verizon Wireless Samsung Villa Gifting Suite at the Thompson Hotel in Bev Hills. Wannabes and wannabe scenesters came to check out the swag, including Hills-ite Stephanie Pratt, floating around the Dermologica tent, scooping up tons of her free skincare shiz. She looked blond and boring (blah-nd, more like it), like every other fair-haired femme in the joint. 'Course, the only thing that makes her special is her Spencer sib. When you're best known for your association with Spence, that's a bad sign—at least Heidi will always have her horrid music vids to define her.

While Stephy P. was enjoying her last five seconds of fame, Rex Lee (aka Entourage's Lloyd) was hanging in the corner with his own set of dandy dudes. Rex-doll sported a Mohawk while keepin' it casual in a tee and jeans. Ari would so not approve.

Oh, and also...

As R.L. was getting his drink on, Bai Ling stayed focused on the free goods at hand. The gal actually looked semidecent in a covering (by Bai's standards, that is) black minidress while perusing the glitzy, over-the-top jeweled purses and jeans. But it was when best-selling backstabber Tori Spelling, along with her fame-sucking hubby, Dean, made their grand entrance with both babies did the heads start turnin'.

'Course Tore showed up for some freebies—this is the same gal who had to have an estate sale to make up for her lack of fatherly funds. T.S. has slimmed like Brit since baby Stella's B-day, and she was looking super summer chic in a long, blue tie-dyed shirt thrown over a pair of skinny jeans. Her hub-unit donned some denim with a white tee left unbuttoned up top, all that man hair free to poke out. Such a Ricky Martin throwback. They were each on stroller duty, blocking the entrance/exit for a good five minutes with their fam, the cheesiest fire hazard we've ever seen, fer sure.
