Expectant parents Britney Spears and Kevin Federline have been vacationing at the Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa in Paradise Valley, Ariz., but it’s not just a pleasure trip. They’re also finishing work on Britney & Kevin, their new reality show for UPN, which premieres May 17. The couple completed the voice-over narration of the home videos taken by Federline, so now it’s officially a wrap: “Their portion of the production is done,” a source says. But producers in Los Angeles are still editing some 20 hours of video, including scenes from Spears’s European tour and the couple’s wedding.
We just had to ask: Which reality show do celebrities think they could win?
Paula Abdul: I’d love to take part in The Amazing Race – that seems like it could be a lot of fun. I’d have to have the right partner. Definitely not Simon. That could never be. We wouldn’t make it five minutes.
Sylvester Stallone: I could probably win on Wife Swap. I would be a really tough mother and get the kids in line. I’d use Rambo tactics.
Brandy: It’s always been my dream to be a contestant on American Idol. I ask myself every day, “Could I really stand the pressure and really win American Idol“? I had the pleasure of guest judging, and that was a great experience.
David Duchovny: I could win The Apprentice as long as I didn’t have to sell ice cream on the street. That I couldn’t do. I can only sell movies.
Mark McGrath: The one I want to be on is The Surreal Life. I’m cheesy enough to say it. When you have Webster and MC Hammer sharing bunk beds, I want a part of that.
Caught in the Act
• Halle Berry, at a benefit event at the Los Angeles home of Dylan McDermott and wife Shiva Rose. The actress, wearing her hair pulled back in a ponytail and dressed simply in trousers and a leather jacket, joined the discussion presented by Artists for Amnesty (a group formed in Hollywood to support Amnesty International) about the plight of African women .
• David Arquette, Julianna Margulies, Christian Slater and other celebrities, hanging out at New York City’s Maritime Hotel for a post-premiere party celebrating the indie drama Slingshot. The partygoers mingled and drank the specialty of the night: the Tribecatini, made with Fris vodka.
