Notes from Hollyweird 

Britney “I think we should all, like, trust President Bush or whatev’” Spears will appear in an episode of “Will & Grace” (yes, it’s still on). The episode [will shoot Wednesday], and will air … well, who cares. Anyway, Brit, as I like to call her, was originally slated to play a christofascist. From ABC: “Jack’s fictional network, Out TV, is bought by a Christian TV network, leading to Spears contributing a cooking segment called ‘Cruci-fixin’s.’” Hilarity would have ensued, I’m sure, except … drama ensued instead!

Yes, friends, NBC execs – as a latte-sipping limousine liberal on set tells me – nixed the Christian angle. The execs had to put their foot down, they said, partly because of the “Book of Daniel” fiasco. Also, the execs stated that “Will & Grace” didn’t make fun of other groups, so it would be inappropriate to single out Christians. This Chardonnay-swillin’, brie-eatin’ member of the elite wonders if these execs have ever seen the show, which is predicated on poking fun at gays and Jews. Anyhoo, the writers, faced with a creative dilemma of epic proportions, invented an elegant solution: they decided to make Brit a hard-core conservative Republican. The insider told me the writers said, “‘Fine, we’ll just make all of the jokes about President Bush, then.’”

Score one for Hollyweird, bra!
