Six weeks after the birth of their second son, Jayden James, BRITNEY SPEARS and KEVIN FEDERLINE are getting back to business—and pleasure. While Dad was busy promoting his album in L.A. last week, Britney (with the kids and nanny in tow) headed to Las Vegas to work on her own album and enjoy some downtime. On Oct. 18 the slimmed-down singer caught the midnight show at Pure Nightclub’s Pussycat Dolls Lounge. The next day she holed up in a dance studio at Canyon Ranch Spa Club for hours—then kept the workout going at the Venetian’s Tao, where she grooved until early the next morning with a gal pal and two male dancers. Looks like Brit is back.


HUDSON flew to Australia Oct. 23 to film Fool’s Gold with MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY, but not before she raised the public profile of her romance with WILSON just a tiny bit: On Oct. 20 the couple were spotted engaging in their very first public snuggle session. Hitting Hollywood hot spot Les Deux, they spent most of the evening chatting with friends but stole away, says a clubgoer, to “nuzzle noses and kiss on the lips.” What will they do next—and when?


Ever since KELLY MONACO nearly lost her top during Dancing with the Stars’ first season, show costumer Randal Christensen has been warding off wardrobe malfunctions on a weekly basis:

After MONIQUE COLEMAN (above) pulled down her skirt with her heel doing the jive Sept. 26, “we made it mandatory to have an extra band of elastic,” he says.

In other rear views, “JOEY LAWRENCE split his black pants the first night—and he [had on] white underwear. We stitched them up during a break, but we kept black underwear on hand after that.”

In an off-camera scare, “WILLA FORD’s rumba dress wasn’t staying put during rehearsal. So I dyed a piece of fabric to [patch on]. We had to keep that bust in!”
