A celebrity checked into rehab to just mislead the public into believing that they were actually doing something about their drug problem, yet never intended to stay? I'm shocked and outraged.

She just needed rehab on her resume so she could be in Hollywood fashion. Or she had the date wrong on the invitation from Paris for the party there.

The Media killed Anna Nichole Smith, who never did anything to anyone except be annoying.
They are going to kill this chick too, for the same offense.

What I think happened was that she didn't want to get rid of K-Fed, but she listened to everyone anyway, and now she's miserable without him. She's on this self-destructive path because she's so miserable. I'm not going to judge whether Kevin was good for her or not, but we didn't see this side of Britney when she was with Kevin. I don't know. She's just a mess and she needs help. Sad, very sad.

Every day I turn more and more to Kevin being the better alternative for those two children.

I guess the prediction that she would be "the next Madonna" isn't really working out for her.

I'm wondering why K-Fed hasn't filed for custody of his kids. Surely Britney is not a fit mother. You can't help but compare her with ANS and wonder if she won't end up the same way. These Hollywood trash losers have no business cranking out children. They only think about themselves and their reckless lifestyles.
