Intervention for Britney? No Way!

12/1/2006 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney rocks on: Click to launch galleryBritney Spears has clearly gone off the rails after her split with K-Fed, and it's time for an intervention. But who's going to step in and stop this train wreck? Not a soul, sources tell TMZ.

The problem is, anyone who might be close enough to tell the 24-year-old Britney to get things in order (and put on some panties) is also on the Britster's gravy train, so they don't want to bite the hand that feeds them, we're told. Her mother Lynne, who's being supported by her daughter, has all but given up trying to get Brit to shape up and calm down, and can't even get in touch with her. And her father Jamie has always stayed mainly in the shadows. What's more, few people outside the family appear have much sway with Britney – except, by the look of things, Paris Hilton.

Believe it or not, it seems that the Fed-Ex may actually have been at least a steadying influence on Britney, even though he's hardly a paragon of upright citizenship himself. Ultimately, says one source close to the family, "The only person that can stop Britney is Britney."



Will Chris Rock Ditch The N-Word?

After Michael Richards' infamous rant prompted a ban on the N-word, TMZ went on the hunt to see whether comedian Chris Rock would be putting the kibosh on a staple of his act. Unfortunately, answers were hard to get. We called, we called, and we called, but his rep just couldn't get a reply out of Rock.

So the question is: Is Chris going to be cagey and not commit? If that's the case, it could be an incredibly smart move, because everybody in the world will be watching his next television special to see if he'll use the N-word.

And we're guessing that Michael Richards will be one of them.

Lindsay Lohan flipped out when she saw Jessica Biel at an event in L.A. the other night, because Jessica's assistant used to work for the freckled phenom – until a few months ago, when she quit.

Page Six reports that Lohan, upon seeing Biel and the woman at the GQ Men of the Year awards, screamed, "If she stays, I'm outta here! I can't look at that girl!" But Lindsay's tirade elicited not so much as a shrug from Jessica: "It was really uncalled for. Jessica and everyone else ignored her." Even more humiliating, says the Post, was Will Ferrell's reaction when he heard about Lindsay's tantrum. Turning to Leonardo DiCaprio, Al Gore, and Ben Affleck, Ferrell scoffed, "Who cares about that freak anymore, anyway?" eliciting laughter from the crowd. Lohan's rep said that the outburst didn't sound like Lindsay, and Biel's rep said, "Jessica is a professional." Snap.

A judge in Malawi ruled that human rights groups can monitor Madonna's parenting practices while she and husband Guy Ritchie wait for their adoption application for little David Banda to wend its way through the courts. David's birth dad, Yohane, said that he hoped the case would help make it easier for foreigners to adopt children in Malawi ... Sandra Bullock isn't pregnant, she tells People. The actress says that she and husband Jesse James "are not with child, but we are pregnant with ideas." All right, then. ... Director Martin Scorsese's next project might be an adaptation of the historical tome "The Last Duel: A True Story of Crime, Scandal, and Trial by Combat in Medieval France" for Paramount, reports Variety. It's the story of a government-sanctioned duel between two French knights ... Those Ralph Fiennes – Ellen Barkin rumors continue to heat up. The 43-year-old Fiennes, who's always had an eye for the mature ladies, was seen at Orso restaurant in New York with the 52-year-old Barkin, according to In Touch magazine, and then went to a play, where Ralph "couldn't take his eyes off" Ellen.

WTF?    

Who would have ever imagined that there would have been a day when K-Fed would be described as a steadying influence?

Maybe we were all too hard on that guy. Britney seems to be a frickin handful.....

MY GO PEOPLE....YOU ARE MAING BRITNEY SOUND LIKE SHE IS A HERIONE ADDICT AND NEEDS AN A&E INTERVENTION.

LEAVE HER ALONE FOR A HOT MINUTE.SHE HAS BEEN PREGANT FOR 2 YEARS AND JUST NEEDS TO BLOW OF SOME STEAM.1 WEEK OF PARTIES IS HARDLY A REASON FOR FAMILY INTERVENTION.SHE HAS PEOPLE TO TAKE CARE OF HER KIDS AND I AM SURE SHE SPENDS THE DAY WITH THEM.

IT'S NEVER ENOUGH RIGHT? IF SHE WAS HIDING IN HER HOUSE, LIKE SHE HAS BEEN THE LAST 2YRS...YOU WOULD BE SAYING "WHERE'S BRITNEY?" AND "BRITNEY HAS DEPRESSION". I CAN ACTUALLY SAY I WOULD NOT WANT TO BE HER. NO AMOUNT OF MONEY IS WORTH THE CONSTANT SCRUNITY!!

gotta love will ferrell.
for the most part, comedians are much more grounded and in touch than most actors who take themselves way too serious.
they're paid alot of scratch to pretend for a living, they should shutup & enjoy it.

I say, that Britney is a serious case of mental instability and her behaviour says it all.. She needs medical attention from some psychotherapists..

It looks like she hates her life right now, and believe me, after she will come out of this trance, another biography will hit the bookstores.. almost every celebrity end up writing a book after they rise above their dark places..just like Janet, Broke Shields to name a few.

She is hating herself for falling for the wrong guy and wasting all her energy trying to prove evryone wrong...She is probably going through post-natal depresion like Brooke Shields...and most likely she hates her 2nd son Jayden James..It seems she cares more about Sean Preston..

Britney is probably finding it hard to come to terms that she spent 2 years of her life locked up and pregnant back-to-back...

Well, we might just as well wait for Tomkat to come out of their honeymoon , so Mr Cruise can share his Scientology remedy !!!

I've NEVER heard Chris Rock yell at a member of the audience and call them a cracker or a n*gger. It baffles me what that has to do with Michael Richards. Richards verbally attacked an audience member with name calling....if you can give me the comedy act and date that Chris Rock did the same, then you have a point. Otherwise, STFU and stay on topic TMZ.

They about to get paid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    

she wanted to be pregnant back to back,when you open your legs,those things happen,so you know what they say,be careful what you ask for,you might get them.I am now swaying towards the k-thug camp for the kids,because as we can see she wont be a role modle for them,she only cares about her self,she cant even remember the babies name,britt is finished as a mother and a star,she will be broke in 5 years just like Mike Tyson,and Bobby Brown,doing side shows with a coffee can scraping up money to eat.I can get some change?

She's having fun and being stupid? Well, you got the STUPID part right! and NO! we ALL don't take our panties off in order to have "FUN!!" She's extremely nasty! She's a complete has-been that never WAS. I find it disgusting that her people around her can't give the whore a reality check simply because they benefit of the mess that she is. There is nothing wrong with a single mother going out and having a good time but she's gone completely overboard and doesn't need to be showing off her VA-JJ for the world to see... what a pig!!!!!

It's really sad that Brit's mom or mgr cannot help her get her priorities right. The past couple of weeks, she has done nothing more than be a MENACE TO SOCIETY. She needs to be forced to seek counseling or from what we've observed lately a mental institution. She is one who grew up in the spotlight with no experiences whatsoever to recognize common sense. To think she has a newborn and a toddler. Only someone on drugs acts that way directly after giving birth. Who knows what is in the works this weekend for her.

As far as Lindsay Hohan is concerned... I mean seriously who gives a rats ass about this overrated "actress". If Will Ferrell actually said that then he's totally moved up on my list of favorite comedians! I'm really over her always playing coy with a camera in her face and acting like a whore when the cameras are away. Another pig! Her mother should be real proud! Oh wait she's a pig too!

There is never anything good said about LL on this site. Why is that?

I personally think she's getting railroaded (at times) by the media. Other times she makes me scratch my head wondering what the heck she's thinking...

Lindsay Lohan better watch it. She is RIGHT on the edge of becoming, 'Lindsay WHO?' Her prima donna attitude is making people not want to work with her and also, making the public not want to watch her.
