Britney Spears stepped out for a rare red carpet appearance with boyfriend Jason Trawick Wednesday night as she presented an evening of "Southern Style" for The St. Bernard Project in Beverly Hills.
Arriving in a stunning, skin-tight green mini, the Louisiana native played host to the evening of "Southern Style." Spears is an ambassador to The St. Bernard Project organization, whose efforts are helping to rebuild Louisiana after the devastating effects of 2005's Hurricane Katrina.
Britney's father, Jamie Spears, had a special hand in the preparing the event's cuisine, as evidenced in this picture Britney tweeted out that night. Jamie treated guests to traditional-style dishes from his very own kitchen.
Hilary Duff, who is also a southern native, brought husband Mike Comrie, and was "very excited" to get a taste of Jamie's special cuisine. Kelly Osbourne said that she "hadn't eaten all day" in anticipation of the night's home-style dishes.

Bristol Palin recently fessed up to a corrective procedure done on her jaw that had many speculating she had cosmetic surgery, and in light of the recent speculation, we asked fellow "Dancing with the Stars" alumnus and reality show co-star, Kyle Massey, what he thought about Bristol's new look.
Massey says he keeps in touch with Bristol "every now and then," however he hadn't heard anything about the plastic surgery rumors. As it turns out, we were the first to show him the "before" and "after" pictures, and he confessed that he "didn't see the difference" between the two, and thinks "she looks the same" in the photos.
As for whether or not Bristol's mother Sarah Palin would make an appearance, Kyle says he "wouldn't rule it out."
The two have an upcoming reality series featuring Bristol Palin, Kyle Massey, and his brother Chris, for a reality show following the controversial single mom as she works at a small charity. The show will be on the BIO Channel, and BIO has already ordered ten half hour episodes of the currently untitled documentary series.
The show is set to air at the end of this year.
Back on May 12, 1998, Matt Damon and Edward Norton were competing in the World Series of Poker tournament right before the opening of their new film, 'Rounders.'
In the film, Damon plays a former gambler who now attends law school, but must return to the world of high stakes underground poker to help his friend, played by Norton, pay off loan sharks.
While Damon says he had experience playing poker with friends before filming 'Rounders,' he said that those games were much different than the tournament. "It's a totally different thing than this tournament," Damon said. "This is a lot more serious. The home game I used to play, people would feel guilty if someone lost too much money."
Check out the video to see this early interview with Damon and Norton.

The "Entourage" boys are back...for their eighth and final season, and our Brooke Anderson was there to get the scoop on the end of the series, and the beginnings of a possible big-screen franchise. "It's sad. Yeah, I am going to miss it. It's been fun," says Mr. Johnny Drama himself, Kevin Dillon. "I am going to miss the guys, the fun we've had on set." Those sentiments ring true for Kevin Connolly as well, "I am crying. Can you see me crying? I am teared up because this is terrible."
Through the eight seasons of the HBO show, many guest celebrities have come on lampooning their celeb personas and for the final season, "Entourage" has brought on comedian Andrew Dice Clay for a multi-episode arc as a co-star of Johnny Drama's (Dillon) animated series "Johnny's Bananas." The Diceman has been a fan, "I've been watching since the very beginning...I nearly did it the first season," he continues, "when the deal came in to do as much as I am doing I said, 'I can't even believe this.'" Andrew's son, Max, will also make an appearance on the show playing himself.
Though the show may be coming to a close, everyone is feeling confident that a movie isn't far behind. Kevin Connolly puts it best, "I am usually pretty pessimistic, but I am optimistic that we're going to do a movie." And what can we expect from a big-screen "Entourage?" "The bar has to be raised. The movie has to be better than an episode of the show. It's got to be the show on steroids." Kevin Dillon is equally confident, "There has been so much talk about it. I think it's probably going to happen...It will be 'Entourage' but bigger."
We'll have to wait and see if "Entourage" moves from the living room to theaters, but if so, based on what we're hearing, it will be huge.
ET caught up with Angelina Jolie and Jack Black at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival in France, as the two promoted their highly anticipated animated film 'Kung Fu Panda 2', out May 26.
Angelina shares that her six kids were a big factor in why she decided to do the sequel to the highly successful 'Kung Fu Panda', particularly her two daughters Shiloh, 4, and Zahara, 6.
"My kids love the first one so it was easy to say yes and try it another time," Angelina says about deciding to reprise her role as South China panda "Tigress". "The kids love kung fu. Two of my children are from Asia so they're very proud of the film in general. But my girls also really like having a tough girl. It's not about being a tough girl, but Tigress just happens to be quite a strong woman so they like her dolls and they like her...it just makes me that much more confident and [makes me] want to do it."
She also shares that she hopes her children will one day become writers, instead of following in the footsteps of their superstar parents. When asked if her children are already showing signs of wanting to be in the business, she says, "I don't think so yet, no...but it could just be wishful thinking." "I think I'm trying to encourage some writers if that makes any sense. Adventurers and writers is what I'm going for...but I'll probably end up with six actors," she smiles.
Check out the video to see more of our interview with Angelina at Cannes.
'Puss in Boots' co-stars Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek took Cannes by storm Wednesday, arriving on the water in a giant, 22-foot-high pair of black boots.
Flamenco dancers dressed in black set the scene on the red carpet, and then Antonio and Salma emerged from the boots to greet hundreds of fans, curious onlookers and the press.
"The interesting thing about 'Shrek,' and I think following in the tradition of 'Shrek' with 'Puss in Boots,' is that we make movies that not only are appealing for very young audiences, but to the [parents]," says Antonio, who voices the title character. "I think it's important to wink an eye at the parents too."
"Of course, Antonio made it extra attractive because I love working with him so much," says Salma, who plays the street-savvy Kitty Softpaws. "I have a child now, so I was very tickled by the idea of me being in one of those movies that she watches thousands of times. … It's very exciting to get rid of your body and just work with your voice."
The 3D animated 'Shrek' spinoff, which follows the infamous sword-wielding cat before he met Shrek in a plot to steal the famed goose that lays the golden eggs, struts into theaters and IMAX November 4.
TheInsider.com sits down with family attorney Robert Brandt to sort out the possibilities of a divorce between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver and explore whether the pair signed a prenuptial agreement before their storybook wedding in 1986.
"It could be massive if there is a divorce," Brandt said. "We are talking about a world famous actor who was making $20 million a movie before he became governor. We are talking about someone who is in the Kennedy family -- one of the most famous, wealthy families in the world. A case like this, if they don't work it out, could involve tremendous sums of money. We could be talking about upwards of a billion dollars in net worth."
"Under California law, all community property has to be equally divided. So if we are talking about a billion dollars in acquisitions -- from the date of marriage to the date of separation -- each one of them is going to end up with half a billion dollars, absolutely," Brandt said.
The attorney at the Feinberg, Mindel, Brandt & Klein law firm in Los Angeles said that while it has not been disclosed whether the famous couple signed a prenuptial agreement, he's sure they evaluated this carefully before the marriage. "I would have to think that considering she was from the Kennedy clan, and he had already done many, many movies and was extremely successful -- and he was an actor -- they certainly had to have thought about a prenuptial agreement."

Like father, like son. Romeo followed in the footsteps of dad Master P by being dismissed from "Dancing With the Stars" without the mirror ball in his possession.
Romeo hung in long enough to overcome his fear of dancing. "I didn't dance at my own prom," he revealed. "I turned down a lot of movies because I was terrified of dancing. Coming to this show and having a teacher like Chelsie [Hightower], it definitely opened my eyes up and I think only bettered my future."
Banished from the ballroom, Romeo is looking forward to shaking his hips with Chelsie in a salsa club. Proud of his growth on the show, the singer and actor boasted "we went out with a bang" after dancing what he considers to be his best dance on Monday night.
Ralph Macchio's injured knee was undoubtedly quivering until the very end when he and partner Karina Smirnoff learned viewers granted him the opportunity to heal and dance next week with extra zeal.

After terrorizing season 8 of "NCIS," the Port-to-Port Killer was finally revealed on Tuesday's episode.
Newcomer Lt. Jonas Cobb (Kerr Smith), who was brought on to help search for the Port-to-Port Killer, had his cover blown in the latest episode when Special Agent Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and his team discovered that Cobb was the murderer they've been after.
We visited the "NCIS" set in April, going behind the scenes as the cast filmed the ending to this dynamic plot line.
"You know what's interesting to me is when you get somebody that either looks or plays a good guy all the time, because it's more interesting [to see that actor] as a bad guy," said Kerr Smith, who might be best known for his clean-cut character Jack McPhee on "Dawson's Creek."
Watch the clip to see Mike Franks (Muse Watson) going head-to-head against Cobb. "NCIS" airs Tuesdays on CBS.

While accepting an award at the Skirball Cultural Center in honor of the 63rd Israeli Independence Day celebration, Arnold acknowledged his marital struggles and thanked everyone for the "tremendous amount of support" he's received.

The Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson visited "The Oprah Winfrey Show," leaking details on the emotional toll the royal wedding took on her, having been excluded from the ceremony.
"It was so difficult because I wanted to be there with my girls and to be getting them dressed and to go as a family," said Fergie, whose daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie turned heads with their fashion choices for Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding. "And also it was so hard because the last bride up that aisle was me."
Fergie wed Prince Andrew at Westminster Abbey in 1986. The couple divorced 10 years later.
As far as who's to blame for her exclusion, The Duchess spilled that she felt like she had been ostracized but not by the royal family.
"I felt that I had ostracized myself by my behavior, by my past, by living with all the regrets and my mistakes," said Fergie.
Click the video to hear what Fergie said about Princess Diana, and you can see the full interview on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" tomorrow, May 11.
"Saturday Night Live" cast member Jason Sudeikis has a few butterflies about his first time at the MTV Movie Awards, which is understandable considering he's hosting the ceremony.
"Falling down at some point," Jason said when asked what he feared the most about providing the entertainment for MTV's big night.
Fortunately for Jason, he had a few friends to call on for advice.
"I asked Sarah Silverman if I should do it," said Jason. "I asked Andy [Samberg] and he was like, 'Absolutely, you should do it.'"
Sarah emceed the event in 2007 while Andy took the helm in 2009. One tip the actor got from his famous friends was to book talent early if he came up with a casting idea for a sketch.
"Very showbizzy advice, I know," Jason admitted. "But helpful never the less."
Jason hasn't had a lot of time to focus on what he's most looking forward to, but he guessed that he'll "probably be really excited for that five minutes right after it's done."

With TV's long-awaited upfront presentations less than a week away, TheInsider.com gets a breakdown from TV Guide Magazine's senior critic Matt Roush on which shows are likely to return in the fall and which ones could be axed.
Among the shows Matt thinks are "on the bubble" this time around: ABC's drama "Brothers & Sisters," NBC's "The Event," "Law & Order: Los Angeles" and "Chuck." Those likely to return include: ABC's "Desperate Housewives," CBS's police drama "Blue Bloods" and NBC's "Harrys' Law" and "Parenthood."
At CBS, while the "CSI" crime drama franchise has been hugely successful, Matt said it might be the end of the road for the network's New York-themed show. "'CSI: NY' has been around awhile and CBS has a history of taking some of their long-running crime shows and just retiring them so they can bring new ones on the schedule, and that may happen to 'CSI: NY.' It just may be its time to go," he said. The CBS shows "The Defenders" and "$#*! My Dad Says" are also long shots to come back, according to Matt.

Of watching herself onscreen, Rosie confided, "It's very awkward. It seems like it's not a real movie to me when I'm in it."
She also explained that she hoped to use stand-up comedy as a stepping stone to acting: "I wanted to be more of a comedic actress more than a stand-up comic, and I thought stand-up comedy would provide me the opportunity to segue into acting, and thankfully it has done that," said Rosie.
With the recent announcement that former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are separating after 25 years of marriage, The Insider has footage of an undoubtedly happier time together – their wedding day on April 26, 1986 at the St. Francis Xavier Church in Hyannis, Massachusetts.

Hines hasn't exactly jumped on board with the idea of a "Cops" themed dance in light of last week's run in with the police, but with The Insider's Christina McLarty as instigator, Ward may just warm up to it eventually.
Ward considered Christina's proposition, conceding that a step in that direction may skyrocket his "bad boy" status to the likes of dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Romeo Miller and Chelsie Hightower both found the idea "awesome," and Ralph Macchio took it a step further with the suggestion that Hines incorporate handcuffs in his future routine.
