Britney Spears was back on How I Met Your Mother tonight. The show’s co-producer says this time around Britney did better than her previous performance and is definitely open to her coming back next year.

The father of American Idol contestant David Archuleta is apparently living up to his stage dad reputation. and the Associated Press are both reporting Heff Archuleta has been banned from Idol rehearsals, effective immediately. This came after David’s dad directly disobeyed show producers last week and had David make a change to the lyrics he was singing. David’s voice coach tried to clarify the situation saying, “He is just not allowed to go into the arranging sessions with David. It is more of a fairness issue than anything else, since the other two contestants don't have people on site to help with their arrangements. It is not a punishment."

STAR Artist Leona Lewis’ hit has now shattered another record. “Bleeding Love” has now been number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for four weeks now, no other British female solo artist has ever done that with a debut single.

On Friday I told you about the new movies that came out. And I also said you could see Iron Man if none of the new flicks impressed you that much. And so that’s what you did. The critically acclaimed and audience-beloved Iron Man maintained its number one spot this weekend earning another $50 million. Speed Racer debuted at a pathetic number 2, What Happens in Vegas’ entrance to the box office chart was right behind that at number 3. Iron Man’s box office strength will definitely be tested this coming weekend when The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian hits theaters.

A week or so ago I told you NBC would be making former SNL star Jimmy Fallon the official replacement of Conan O’Brien once Conan replaces Jay Leno. Today, it was made official. Fallon told us “It's a comedian's dream to get this job, to work with writers and try to be funny every night”. According to a Late Night producer, you’ll probably start seeing Jimmy in the host role next year.

John Travolta’s wife Kelly Preston told us yesterday that Miley Cyrus and her husband could be teaming up to sing together. They're both providing voices for the new animated movie Bolt. Kelly also told us she hasn’t seen Miley’s controversial photos from Vanity Fair but says she and John both know that Miley’s “a really good girl with a great head on her shoulders.”

According to E! Online Britney Spears has promised her sister Jamie Lynn she’ll come back home to Louisiana when Jamie Lynn gives birth. Probably to offer parenting skills. The Louisiana Department of Child Services better have a SWAT team of social workers standing by.

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and the entire family spent Mother’s Day checking out the soon-to-be new additions to the Jolie-Pitt family. According to a source close to the couple, "Angie was due for a scan and they thought it would be cool to do it on Mother's Day and take Maddox and Pax along to see the twins for themselves on the sonogram machine.”

Despite reports to the contrary, Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson are not engaged. Kate was spotted with a big honkin’ rock on her left ring finger. Her rep had a perfect explanation for the ring. It’s part of her new role she has in a movie called Bride Wars.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo gave possibly the worst performance ever of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" at Sunday’s Cubs game:
