I'll tell you what is wrong with Britney. The reality of the life that she is created for herself has sunk in and she wishes she could turn back the hands of time. Yes: you are a mother who is responsible for two children and their father is a loser/whore and No: You are no longer a carefree, young, slim and attractive starlet. Your life will never be the same because of the poor choices that you made.

Glee (I'm baaaaack)    

about britney. she's
bloated and out of control
not a role model - someone you can look up to
not a hottie any longer - somone for the guys to lust after
no fashion sense - someone to spur sales
chosen to have fun over a serious career or good care for her babies/motherhood

why should we care any longer? I say we do leave her alone. for good.

HOW MANY TIMES CAN I SAY THIS    

She doesn't need rehab. She needs therapy. She's never made a single decision of her own in her whole life - she's emotionally about 8 years old. Not her fault entirely - she's been a saleable commodity since she was little and adults have always made her choices for her. Now that she's doing it herself, the choices suck, because they're the choices an 8-year-old would make. "I wanna stay up late!" "I wanna scream and jump on the bed!" "I don't wanna wear underpants!" Those are all things my 8-year-old has said - same thing.
She needs therapy, pure and simple, and she needs to get some coaching on how to grow up and be age-appropriate. It's not like she's making some screwups but is basically ok - she's literally not prepared, mentally, to make big choices and be responsible, because she's never had to be.
I hope she checked out because she realized that, but I doubt it. Girl, you need a psychiatrist. The drinking is just a symptom of what an unhappy little girl you are inside. Talk to Drew Barrymore - she's been there and she's doing great now. You two have a lot in common that way.

She wants to be herself and she is so trash bec she didn't have a child and teen ager's live like the other!SO SHE IS kind of over reacting and regressing!The prob is that bec she is famous this is damaging her carrer image and herself by the way!She must accept some help and if she doesn't she won't have any choice!If even with some family and people around she can't stay more than 2 days on reab so where are we going?A drugged Mother who is destroying herself in front of her 2 yung babies and the world???Who will be able to help her, exept professional people, the prob with cocaine is that you can become a rubish very quikly and loosing everything, your children, friends and family if they don't love you!So people stop attacking someone who is a victim!BEC the day it will happened to you or someone close to you by being so nasty you won't get any help!Britney now need really to stay in reab and her Mother looking after her babies the time she will find her balance and herself!If only JUSTIN COULD TRY TO DO SOMETHING!!!

Bye, Bye, Britt....you have ruined your image and I feel sorry for all the little girls who tried to be like you. Liquor and drugs brings one to his/her knees.
find another vocation.

she will end up like anna nicole if she doesn't get her damn life on track. i mean what the hell did k-fed do to her during the marriage for her to party party party and become a damn alcholic?! who takes care of her kids?? her career is down the toilet....now since she left k-fed that should have been a wake up call to focus on her kids and make an albumor somethingand prove that baby mommas aren't troublesome! but i guess she couldn't pull that off!

Debra - You are 100% right.

Let me add that she surrounded herself with ass kissers and "yes" men and women. She "talent" is limited and has run it's course. Her times as a "singer" are over and she can't handle that she's washed up.

Britney - Get cleaned up, invest your money wisely, fire all the leaches around you, learn how to take care of yourself and your kids. And PLEASE go AWAY!

Tabloid sh*t are so pathetic. Britney gets away from the spotlight a little and then you guys start pouncing on lies to put her in the spot light. It's funny that people say it's Britney fault because she's in the media, yet when she's away tabloid makes sh*tty lies to talk about her. It's probably because people only want to read about Britney. Look at the blog, when it's about Britney there are over 100 replies other celebs only get about ten.

If it were one of us ordinary people the authorities would have taken away the two kids right away Doesn't she classify as an unfit mother? I think so.
