Oh, my! Trouble in paradise already? From MSNBC:

"Is Britney Spears’ marriage already in trouble?

Only a year after the singer wed her back-up dancer Kevin Federline, reports are circulating that the two might be out of synch.

'Kevin has suddenly started partying like a single guy,' according to the new issue of In Touch Weekly. 'In addition to going out on several occasions without his wedding band on, he’s been hanging out with his old posse of pals and flying to Las Vegas for weekends of drinking, gambling — and even lap dances in strip clubs!'

What’s more, there’s word that Britney is re-thinking her stated eagerness to have children as soon as possible. Apparently, she’s more devoted to her pampered pooches than her hubby is.

'It has occurred to Britney that Kevin isn’t a great help in cleaning up after the dogs,' a source told Life & Style Weekly. 'And he might not be too eager to be on midnight diaper patrol either.'

The mag also reports that Spears spends so much time with her dogs — who sleep in their own nursery with sheets from Shabby Chic — that fitting children into her schedule doesn’t seem possible. 'The other night Britney was leaving with Kevin for a romantic meal, but Bit Bit [her Chihuahua] whined and whined and refused to be left,' the insider told the mag. 'Eventually, they stayed home and ordered takeout.'"

Jesus. I knew Britney was on a downward spiral, but I had no idea her life was this pathetic. It makes me kind of sad. She should be dancing on banquettes with Tara Reid, not worrying about Bit Bit or her yokel husband's partying, and she certainly shouldn't be buying sheets for anyone or anything from Shabby Chic! I know that's the look she's into, but someone should do an intervention before this gets serious.

In other non-news, Page Six reports that there's a feud a' brewin' among various porn historians. The fight is between Legs "No, I'm Not Kurt Loder!" McNeil and the geniuses from World of Wonder who made the new "Inside Deep Throat" documentary:

"Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, the makers of the new porn documentary 'Inside Deep Throat,' are trading blows with Legs McNeil, the horny historian behind 'The Other Hollywood: The Uncensored Oral History of the Porn Film Industry./

McNeil kicked off the carnal clash by trashing 'Inside Deep Throat' and charging that Bailey and Barbato ripped off his 2001 Court TV miniseries, 'Adults Only: The Secret History of the Other Hollywood.'

'They made a s- - -ty movie," McNeil told PAGE SIX. 'Those two gay guys are so smug. They made 'The Eyes of Tammy Faye Bakker.' They're putting her down. It's kind of disgusting. They're just stupid [bleep]holes. They're the reason why porn people think Hollywood is so sleazy. They just make fun of everybody . . . They copied us. And I don't wanna be associated with these guys.'

Bailey responded: 'If 'Inside Deep Throat' has legs, they won't be his. In 1999, we made a six-hour documentary series and published a tie-in book called 'Pornography: The Secret History of Civilization.' It aired in the U.K. on Channel 4 and on Trio in the U.S. We don't make fun of either Linda Lovelace or Tammy Faye and we have just completed a new film, 'Tammy Faye Death Defying,' with her full cooperation.'

Bailey added: "'He is right about one thing — we are gay.'"

What a jackhole Legs McNeil seems to be! Even though he co-wrote one of my all-time favorite books, Please Kill Me, that's no excuse for coming off like a total ass. I remember that he was constantly getting sued for sexual harrassment when he was editor of Spin magazine, and he is way off the mark when he accuses the WOW people of putting down Tammy Faye Bakker in "The Eyes of Tammy Faye"--as the proud owner of the DVD, I can assure those who haven't seen it that "The Eyes of Tammy Faye" is a moving tribute to the First Lady of TV Evangelists, and includes some very moving puppetry; also, why the hell does he have to mention that Bailey and Barbato are "gay guys"? What does that have to do with anything? Legs sounds like a lecherous homophobic turd. "Horny historian," indeed! Snort! Gag! Seriously, people, the man looks just like Kurt Loder--an older, waxier, closer-to-the-end-stages-of-rigor-mortis Kurt Loder. Blech!

Britney and Cletus have been married a YEAR? Jesus, I thought they just got married a few months ago... or maybe as long ago as this past summer. But a year? Really? Yikes!

And I couldn't agree more about the Shabby Chic crap. Yeccch. (Chills run up and down spine.) Although, I suppose it's fitting for her.
