Kirsten’s New Guy Speaks 

Despite a rumored breakup, Kirsten Dunst’s relationship with British rocker Johnny Borrell seems to be going strong. And he’s not letting the pressure of media attention hold back his feelings for the high-profile actress. "If you fall, you fall," the Razorlight frontman told People. "You follow the things that you can’t resist. … That’s falling in love." Awww!

More drinks, drama for Britney Spears

Britney Spears has completed rehab treatment, but she may not be out of the woods yet. According to recent reports, the troubled pop star has become estranged from her family— and is still knocking back drinks.

Sources told In Touch that the "Toxic" singer recently drank some wine at a pal’s Beverly Hills pad — and more at a nightclub that night. The next day, she allegedly had sake at a sushi restaurant.

"Brit feels like she can have a few drinks," an insider reportedly told the magazine. "She feels like as long as she’s having fun and not hurting anyone, she doesn’t need rehab."

So why aren’t loved ones reining her in? Since her father, Jamie Spears, publicly rebuked her for firing her manager, Britney has pulled away from her family, claims Us.

"She’s cut everyone out of her life," a source told the magazine. "She says she doesn’t want to see anyone from her past."

Uh-oh, we don’t like the sound of that. Britney needs a strong support system now!

Alec’s Exit?

Embattled actor Alec Baldwin announced on "The View" that he wants to leave "30 Rock," saying he wants "to devote myself to the cause of parental alienation" and has asked NBC to sever his contract.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Alec is under fire for a voicemail in which he berates daughter Ireland, 11 — an outburst he blames on frustration over an angry custody battle with ex-wife Kim Basinger.

The remorseful actor said he doesn’t want his actions to reflect badly on the TV show, and that rebuilding his relationship with his daughter is his top priority.

"If I never acted again, I couldn’t care less," Alec declared.

But early retirement may not be so easy. An NBC rep says that Alec — who, ironically, plays a heartless network exec on the hit series — "remains an important part of ‘30 Rock,’" adding that "we look forward to having him continue his role in the show."

Garner Gushes

Does Jennifer Garner have to rub it in? The former "Alias" star just can’t seem to stop gushing to us mere mortals about her charmed existence as wife of Ben Affleck and mother of Violet, 1.

In a recent In Style interview, Jen says she’s like a "love-struck teenager" when it comes to her daughter and feels "intoxicated" around her. "I don’t want to miss a second with Violet," she adds.

As for Ben, she calls him "a teddy bear of a guy." (Somewhere, Jennifer Lopez’s stomach is curdling.)

J.Gar goes on: "You know how as a kid you picture yourself with a tall, handsome husband, and you imagine him cuddling your baby? Ben is like that, like, on crack."

OK, Jennifer, we get it. Your life is perfect. We’re happy for you. But from now on, please keep it to yourself.

Harry Sidelined?

Despite official plans to the contrary, a report in the U.K.’s The Sun claims that the military is scheming to keep potential insurgency target Prince Harry off the battlefield when his unit deploys to Iraq next month.

"It’s very complicated," a source told the paper. "No one wants to gift a PR victory to the insurgents by withdrawing him. But there is a groundswell of opinion across senior ranks now that to allow Harry to serve in the open with his men will lead to an inevitable disaster."

A reversal of military plans could be humiliating — if perhaps life-

saving — for the 22-year-old second lieutenant. "There’s no way I’m going to … sit on my arse back home while my boys are out fighting for their country," Harry has said.

Britain’s Defense Ministry would not confirm the report but noted that "all operational deployments are under constant review."

Guess we’ll find out soon enough.
