Is Britney Spears getting married?

Britney Spears accidentally called beau Jason Trawick her husband on a radio show last week, E! reports. Does this mean a wedding is in the works?

During a promo stop on U.K. radio station KISS FM last week, Britney, 29, discussed spending time with her boyfriend of two years (and her talent agent) and her sons, Preston, 6, and Jayden, 5.

Nervously wringing her hands throughout the interview, Brit talked about son Jayden’s recent Spiderman and Batman-themed birthday party.

'Playboy Club' to be replaced by Brian Williams

It was slammed by critics from the very first episode, so it’s no surprise that NBC’s “The Playboy Club” has been axed after just three episodes. CNN can confirm that “Rock Center with Brian Williams” will replace the sexy '60s drama.

Beginning October 31, the newsmagazine show will take over the failed show’s time slot. Until then, repeats of “Prime Suspect,” starring Maria Bello, will air on Mondays at 10 p.m.

Since “The Playboy Club” premiered September 20 to 5 million viewers, ratings have dropped consistently with each episode. The most recent episode had 3.2 million viewers, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
