Britney’s loved ones: ‘Rock bottom’ near 

As Britney Spears’ hard-partying spree continues to spiral out of control, fans are wondering what those close to Britney are doing to help. Now the troubled "Toxic" singer’s former assistant has spoken out, reportedly saying in a poignant online message that she’s "crushed/saddened/heartsick by the way [Britney’s] life is unfolding."

You might remember Felicia Culotta, 41, if you were one of the handful of viewers to sit through an episode of Britney’s "Chaotic" reality show. The pop diva’s long-suffering lackey has parted ways with her former employer … but she hasn’t given up on her.

Felicia assures fans, "WE (as in her Family and nearest and dearest-ALL of whom are NOT on the payroll anymore!!) are doing EVERYTHING in our power to get help for Britney … so when she does indeed hit rock bottom, she’ll stand up and walk away from this whole fiasco a new, confident, changed, career-driven Britney like we all knew and loved."

Good to hear. The question is when and if Britney will accept that she needs help.

New ‘Heroes’ Heartthrob

Looking for love is a whole lot easier when you’re on a hit TV show, as breakout "Heroes" star Masi Oka has recently discovered. "I’ve been going on dates a lot," the actor recently confided in People magazine. "I make it a point to get out and just meet people."

However, that doesn’t mean he’s just looking for a hook-up: "Hopefully, I’ll find someone I can share the rest of my life with."

But there’s one road to romance that actually gets rockier when you’re famous: Internet dating. Masi says you won’t see his profile online anytime soon: "It’s a little bit hard, especially now with the lack of anonymity I have. If I post up my pictures, who knows what I’m going to get?"

Most likely, a lot of people who think you’re impersonating Masi Oka.

Latest Anna Nicole News

(AP Photo/Lou Toman, Pool) Virgie Arthur, mother of Anna Nicole Smith, listens to court arguments about embalming her daughter's remains.

The battle about Anna Nicole Smith’s body continues, as lawyers wrangle over DNA testing of her remains as well as their ultimate resting place.

On Thursday, a judge OK’d analysis of a DNA sample from Anna’s body on behalf of her ex-boyfriend Larry Birkhead — who claims he’s the father of her 5-month-old baby, Dannielynn — to assuage fears that existing DNA samples could be switched to produce misleading paternity test results.

But the final fate of Anna’s body is still to be decided, as her mother, Virgie Arthur, wishes her to be buried in her home state of Texas, while her partner, Howard K. Stern, wants her laid to rest near her late son, Daniel, in the Bahamas.

Meanwhile, Web site unearthed possibly illegal prescriptions for the drugs methadone and Demerol, which Anna may have taken while eight months pregnant, endangering her unborn daughter. The site’s source claimed Anna’s drug use during pregnancy was a factor in her split with Larry … while Howard, on the other hand, enabled it.

With every day that goes by, we’re more worried about little Dannielynn.

‘Friends’ With Benefits?

Courteney Cox has revealed the intimate details of her upcoming onscreen kiss with Jennifer Aniston, using four words that will crush legions of admirers: "There is no tongue."

Courteney’s real-life BFF and former "Friends" co-star will appear on the March 27 season finale of "Dirt" to give her a much-touted smooch. But if you expect more than a "peck," don’t get your hopes up, Courteney says.

"I am not saying don’t tune in to watch Jennifer on the show, because she is fantastic and you get to see us together again. But if you think it is just about a major make-out session, you will be disappointed."

All in all, the so-called lesbian lip-lock is "really not a big deal," Courteney avows.

Says her! We’ll be the judge of that, thank you very much.
