What had ET readers buzzing this week?

1. Britney's Embarrassing Moment on 'The X Factor'

Britney Spears has proven herself to be candid and tough as a judge on the new season of The X Factor alongside Simon Cowell, but this week the pop icon said something with an unintended double meaning that completely embarrasses her.

Episode three of The X Factor visits Kansas City, San Francisco and Austin. After Britney tells a pair of contestants that their voices "are magical … and I wish you could wake me up in the morning," the audience starts to laugh and she quickly tries to clarify – "Singing! Singing!" Of course, Simon pounces on the comic opportunity, declaring, "Fiance in the house, awkward."

2. Tori Spelling Undergoes Emergency Surgery

ET has learned that Tori Spelling had emergency surgery due to complications from her recent childbirth.

A rep for the 39-year-old actress told ET Spelling underwent the procedure "due to complications from her C section." The star and her husband Dean McDermott welcomed a son, Finn Davey McDermott, on August 30.

The rep said on Tuesday the Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood star "remains in the hospital and is resting comfortably." No additional details were provided.

Finn -- who joined brother Liam, 5, and sisters Stella, 4, and 10-month-old Hattie in the family -- was a healthy 6 pounds, 6 ounces when delivered.

3. Amanda Bynes' Shocking Paparazzo Struggle

More trouble for Amanda Bynes… Only ET can show you exclusive footage of the embattled former teen star locked in a disturbing altercation with a paparazzo.

The struggle caught on tape began with Bynes walking down Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, shielding her face when she realized she was being photographed. Apparently the star didn't like the way she looked, and tried to reason with the paparazzo and flatter him into deleting the pics, agreeing to pose for a new set. What happens next turns ugly, as it appears there's a struggle over control of the camera.

The melee ends with the pap yelling that the star hurt him, with Bynes calmly saying, "I didn't touch you."

Bynes has become a paparazzi magnet ever since her car was impounded following a citation for driving on a suspended license – suspended after a series of fender benders and accused hit and runs in addition to a DUI charge for the star.

Bynes has pleaded not guilty to her charges, and has publicly refuted her hit-and-run accusations and DUI charges, tweeting about her innocence.

4. Is Doug Pitt Ready for a Brangelina Wedding?

Brad Pitt's younger brother Doug Pitt is getting a taste of the spotlight himself due to a hilarious Australian Virgin Mobile ad following his life as "the second most famous Pitt in the family" that quickly went viral, and he recently sat down with ET's Christina McLarty to talk about his newfound fame, his passion for charity work, and if he's prepared for what's sure to be one of the biggest celebrity weddings of all time -- the marriage of his brother Brad to Angelina Jolie.

"I had no idea it [the Virgin Mobile commercial] would hit the States to begin with -- only 10 people knew including my immediate family, so when the phone started ringing and emails started coming in, I did panic a little bit. That's the truth," Doug admits about all the attention the campaign has received. "But it's out there and luckily, people think it's funny, and they should."

Much like Brad, Doug is heavily involved in charity work, particularly the organization Care to Learn which provides immediate funding and action to meet any emergent health, hunger, or hygiene issue and restore a child’s self-respect so they can get back in the classroom. He is also involved in WorldServe International, which provides water and sanitation solutions in developing countries with its own Africa-based water resource development company. He was honored for his charity work and named Goodwill Ambassador of the United Republic of Tanzania by President Jakaya Kikwete in 2010.

"I think you gotta give mom and dad credit," he says about his and Brad's passion for charity work. "It's not one of those things where you kind of look at it, you turn the page and there it happened. I'm lucky that career-wise I've been able to baby-step into it, and you know, some things choose you too."

And while Doug remains carefully mum about the celebrity wedding everyone has been waiting for, he does say that he will be ready for the Brangelina nuptials whenever the time comes.

"No discussion, no plans, no details," he says about being kept in the dark about any possible wedding plans. "That's on their schedule ... you respond if they call."

Check out the video to hear his thoughts on the controversy his mom Jane caused when she penned an anti-gay marriage letter to a Missouri newspaper, and how you can get involved with his extensive charity work. Visit for more information.
