Ivana sue you, dahlink!

The Donald's ex gets litigious after a TV stunt drowns her dress; Britney shocked: U.K. tabloid got the sex-for-millions story all wrong! Plus: Hot mama! Sharon Stone to do "Basic Instinct 2"!

Topics: Michael Jackson, Celebrity, Survivor, Britney Spears, Donald Trump,

You’d think anyone who woke up next to Donald Trump for years would have to have a pretty good sense of humor — but, alas, it seems Ivana Trump is actually a bit of a wet blanket.

The developer’s ex has filed a $3 million lawsuit against an Italian TV station after its employees doused her with water during an appearance on a “Candid Camera”-like show last year.

“She was not treated with respect on that show,” Trump’s lawyer, Dan Harrington, told the Associated Press.

In court papers, Trump contends that the splashy surprise caused her “bodily harm, shock, chills, nervousness, high fever, nausea, embarrassment and severe emotional distress” and forced her to seek emergency medical treatment to the tune of $400.

What’s more, she claims, it ruined her $3,000 dress and resulted in the loss of a pair of $25,000 Harry Winston earrings.

And God knows how many thousands of dollars in makeup and hairspray …

Never mind the beady little eyes …

Like, totally untrue

Good rumors die hard. And so it is with considerable sadness (though not much surprise) that I must inform you that if a randy American businessman did, in fact, offer Britney Spears millions of dollars to sleep with him — as was reported in the U.K. Sun a few weeks back — it’s news to her virgin ears.

“Somebody just asked me … ‘Is it true that this guy offered you some $11 million to have sex with him?’” she told the Toronto Sun last week, “and I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’”

And what of her comment dubbing it “a disgusting offer” and suggesting the frisky fellow “go have a cold shower”?



Spears says she’s shocked that the U.K. paper “had me saying a quote, and I didn’t even know about it. Maybe this guy did do this, but no one told me about it.”

I mean, like, they could have at least given her the option …

Juicy bits

So much for maternity leave. New adoptive mama Sharon Stone has signed on to revive her role as panty-eschewing murder suspect Catherine Tramell in “Basic Instinct 2.” According to Variety, she’ll pocket about $15 million for her pains. Stone’s “Basic Instinct” costar, Michael Douglas, director Paul Verhoeven and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas will be absent from the sequel, but producers Mario Kassar and Andy Vajna, who were also behind the first flick, said Stone was indispensable. “The first film could not have been made without Sharon’s mesmerizing performance,” they said, “and we believe her return engagement will be even more exciting.” Cross, uncross, cross, uncross …

In other sequel news … Paul Hogan will start filming another installment of “Crocodile Dundee” in August. Barry Sonnenfeld is in talks to reteam with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones on a “Men in Black” sequel. A new “Superman” may be in the works. And Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg are chatting up “The Sixth Sense” writer/director M. Night Shyamalan about penning the script for a new “Indiana Jones” movie. Indy sees dead people?

At least one Backstreet Boy has quit playing games with the hearts of his fawning teenage fans. Kevin Richardson married his longtime girlfriend June 17 in a ceremony officiated by his minister brother back home in Kentucky. The couple met while working at a theme park, where she was a dancer in “Beauty and the Beast” and he was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. She coaxed him out of his shell.

Germany-based concert promoter Marcel Avram is suing Michael Jackson for $20 million for pulling out of two elaborate millennial concerts at the last minute — and he’s also got a message for the King of Pop. “There is nothing else we can do but to remind Michael Jackson of his responsibilities as an artist and businessman,” he said. “Saying ‘I love you’ is not enough.” Words to live by.
