Scoop: How Britney Spears got her shape back

Along with regaining her mind, Britney Spears has regained her killer body. Now she’s opening up to OK! magazine about how she got back into shape. Brace yourself — the days of frappucinos and McDonald’s drive-through food are over.

Along with doing “lots of cardio and weights” five days a week at the gym, Brit says she’s made over her diet with all healthy choices.

“I’m the healthiest I’ve been all my life,” the pop star proudly tells the tabloid. “My diet has a lot to do with my getting into shape. I have no sugar. I don’t eat fruit or even fruit juice because of the sugar. I eat chicken and salmon and rice. I eat avocados. I’ll have egg whites for breakfast and sometimes turkey burgers for lunch. I try to do just 1,200 calories a day. It may sound like it’s not much, but it’s actually a lot of food if you eat the right things.”

In other news, several Starbucks in the Malibu area have gone out of business. (We kid, we kid.)

Mommy Matt?

Are new parents Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves already arguing over how to raise infant son Levi? A report in Star claims the chiseled actor wants their household to remain nanny-free, while his baby mama could use a little help, thank you very much.

A source tells the tabloid that the shirt-averse star is a real hands-on dad … perhaps too much so: “If he could breast-feed the baby himself, he would.”

But Matt’s DIY approach is causing some chaos: “The house is getting messier, and neither of them is getting much sleep. Camila wants to hire someone, but Matthew really objects. At least for the first few months, Matthew wants the two of them and their families to be the only ones caring for Levi.”

Who knew laid-back Matthew would turn out to be such a Dadzilla? Let your girlfriend hire some help already. The poor woman was in labor for 60 hours — she’s done enough!

A-Rod’s Babes

His divorce was just set in motion, but Alex Rodriguez is evidently wasting no time finding new female companions. The New York Yankees’ slugger was spotted by New York Post spies last week with two different women.

First, A-Rod was seen at South Beach’s Dan Marino restaurant with an unidentified blonde. After enjoying dinner, the two adjourned to a nightspot.

But when confronted by photographers around 1 a.m., Alex ran across the street “trying to make out like he wasn’t with her,” then protested, “This is nothing. She’s an old friend of mine. Leave us alone.” Because nothing says innocent platonic relationship like running away to avoid being photographed with someone.

On Sunday, back in NYC, A-Rod’s moves were a little smoother: He left Soho House a few minutes apart from his date and reconnoitered with her in a hybrid SUV taxicab.

Hey, he may be a cad, but at least he’s eco-conscious!

‘90210’ Reunion

Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty famously clashed on the set of “90210” in the ’90s. Now that they’re reprising their roles on the hit show’s new incarnation, how did Jennie feel seeing her former nemesis on set again? Well, she isn’t exactly singing Shannen’s praises.

“It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be,” the former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant confessed to TV Guide.

“I’m not much of a small talker, and I don’t think she is either,” Jennie explained diplomatically. “I was a little nervous because I hadn’t seen or talked to her in 14 years. Everyone was making it out to be such a big deal that I think we both fell prey to having that affect us.”

What will the on-set relationship between the former teen queens be like? “I think it will be OK. We’re both grown women, both professionals. Once we were working, it felt like a good fit.”

Translation: We still don’t like each other, and we never will. But as long as we’re getting paid, we’ll play nice.
