Madonna and Britney Tell-Alls

Holy crap. Can I place my order for the Madonna book NOW?!

MADONNA and Britney Spears are about to get socked with scandalous, tell-all books about their wild and crazy lives.

Madonna is sure to be the more betrayed. Her brother Christopher Ciccone, who had a falling-out with Her Madgesty several years ago, has collaborated with British journo Wendy Leigh on an exposé of his sister for Simon Spotlight Entertainment, an imprint of Simon & Schuster - and it's going to be "brutal."

"It's extremely graphic and devastating," said a source who declined to give details. "He wrote it on the sly without telling Madonna. They want to put it out before her lawyers can get a hold of it."

The book, due out next month, has a massive print run of 350,000.

A dismayed friend of Madonna said, "We'd heard rumors, but didn't realize he'd actually written it. He was there through the crazy years and has many stories to tell, I'm sure. He's seen it all. Oh, my."

Adam Rothberg, Simon & Schuster's fork-tongued flack, told us yesterday, "We don't have anything to say at this time" - but then gave the story to the AP. Madonna's rep declined to comment.

Ciccone - a gay decorator/chef once described by Rupert Everett in Everett's biography as "a solid raft for Madonna in the shark-infested waters" - was ditched by his sister after she hooked up with her now husband Guy Ritchie, who Everett said was "uncomfortable around queens."

Meanwhile, Spears is the subject of a tome by investigative reporter Ian Halperin, the author of "Hollywood Undercover: Revealing the Sordid Secrets of Tinseltown" and "Bad and Beautiful: Inside the Dazzling and Deadly World of Supermodels."

Halperin, who plans to offer "Stalking Britney: Under Siege with Britney Spears" to publishers next week, reveals "details of at least two suicide attempts by the troubled star," as well as allegations by a drug dealer about her substance abuse.
