Dear Billy Bob Thornton. Your estranged wife would like her blood back.

According to the U.K. Sun, Angelina Jolie is suffering some regret over forking over five vials of her most vital fluids to her soon-to-be-ex, fearing that he might use them for some nefarious voodoo purpose.

"Angelina desperately wants the blood samples back," a "pal" of the actress tells the tabloid. "She fears he'll put a curse on her if she doesnt get them back."

The chatty buddy says Thornton once told Jolie that as long as he had her blood, a part of her would always belong to him.

"She wouldn't put it past him to try something [funny]," the friend blabs, "and it scares her to death."

At which point she won't have much use for her blood anyway.

The limits of lap dancing

"My personal take on lap dancing is, if you were out with the boys and you did it once -- or a few times -- it's no big deal. If you make it a steady habit, though, and you're spending more time [with the strippers] than with your family and your wife, then it's a problem."

Maternity chic

Kate Moss isn't the only supermodel with a superbun in her superoven. Claudia Schiffer, married just two months to film producer Matthew Vaughn, has announced that she is at least three months along the path to motherhood.

"We can confirm that Claudia is pregnant and is through her first trimester," Schiffer's spokeswoman told the press this week. "Matthew and Claudia are absolutely over the moon and think it is great news."

Hope she didn't drink too much champagne at the wedding.

Juicy bits

Speaking of celebrity babies, there's soon to be a whole new kind of racket in Pete Sampras' household. Sampras and his wife, actress Bridgette Wilson-Sampras, have announced that their first child is due at the end of the year. I know what they did last spring.

This just in: Britney Spears is human, and she's got the middle finger to prove it. The pesky pop star has apologized to fans in Mexico after she was caught on camera flipping the bird. (She further pissed them off by walking off the stage and abruptly ending a concert there after only five songs.) The gesture, she explains, was aimed not at fans, but at the paparazzi who were stalking her. "I'm human," she told the New York Daily News. "I get mad too." Who knew?
