Looks Like Brittney is going to be the next Anna Nicole. She's headed down the same road, lets just hope KFed is really the father of her kids. I don't think the world can handle another Anna Nicole Soap Opera !!

Something is wrong with this chic...I think being married to Kevin Federline all this time made her a bit wacko...I think she's doing all of this for attention from a special old flame maybe...She need to wake up and and be a grown up. She's acting like a drunk teenager. Grow up and be an adult Britney

Please. Her MOM pimped her out for the cash. She's a pig as well. Skankney probably bolted when they told her she had to wash her hair and shower.

I have a little boy whom I love dearly and would give my life for. I agree that sometimes I do need a little "me" time, but this is ridiculous! How can you be a mother and do the things she is doing?! Everything she does is impacting those precious babies...I feel so sorry for them that they don't have a mommy to look up to.

I hope she goes back, I hope she will get to a point of knowing that there is help and that she has to do it for herself, not the press, not her friends or family. She just may not be ready, but I hope it's soon.

There is hope. Addiction for women NOT in the press is such a private hell, hers is public. I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

When your ready Britney, the help is there!

Brit sucks    

If she lives through this, she'll go to rehab and make comeback album about how she's changed and then not tour because she needs to tend to her boys. The best thing to happen is for her to kill herself like ANS. Then the children won't suffer as much
