Teri Hatcher wins court ruling in lip lawsuit
LOS ANGELES - Teri Hatcher has won a ruling in a feud between rival lip plumpers worthy of Wisteria Lane.
A judge ruled Monday that a $2 million lawsuit against the 43-year-old 'Desperate Housewives' star should be moved out of court and into arbitration.
The lawsuit from cosmetics company Hydroderm, filed late last year in Superior Court, claims that a 2005 endorsement agreement with Hatcher's production company stipulated that she would not pitch competing products.
Restraining order accuses man of drugging Spears
LOS ANGELES - A restraining order against the man who's been at Britney Spears' side during her downward spiral alleges that he drugged her, took over her finances and controlled the ravenous paparazzi 'like a general.'
The order against Sam Lutfi was based on a lengthy declaration from Spears' mother, Lynne, who says Spears met the 33-year-old in October and 'essentially moved into Britney's home and has purported to take control of her life, home and finances.'
The documents released by the court Tuesday ordered Lutfi to stay away from Spears. In a section of the order detailing previous harassment, Lynne Spears says Lutfi 'drugged Britney, he has cut Britney's home phone lines and removed her cell phone chargers. He yells at her. He claims to control everything - Britney's business manager, her attorneys and the security guards at the gate.'
