Post #80: A Mother of 2: EXCELLENT post! I loved reading that one. Chrissy is obviously about 13 years old, and, as you said, has no clue.

Travis...She may not be a druggie, but she certainly is an alcoholic. No doubt about that.

There is an invention called spell check! Use it!!!!!    

ManBearPig Huntress ...Thank You...Thank You....THANK YOU!!! As I was reading the comments made by Chrissy, I thought to myself "why do you care about defending Britney?" Please Chrissy....for the love of Literacy....Use spell check!

As for Ms Spears....The term " The apple doesn't fall far from the tree" applies here.
Think of your children first and foremost....Use COMMON SENSE....Stop the abuse before it STOPS you.

when I was her age I partied my a** off. she is "blowin' off steam! unfortunately she has kids. hopefully they are being taken care of when she's out. young celebs are under such scrutiny and always getting cameras shoved in their faces. wouldn't you want to go wild? just to get away? I would leave her alone. rehab??? if you go to rehab because other people tell you to, it does NO good. You have to want to go. but a week? a month? that's not sufficient! you have to police your own actions. we ALL know right from wrong! ok, not just britney, lindsay, everybody. did anybody evre think "they" only go to look "good" to the public? in essence to save face, amd only for "looks" sound cynical, maybe. but i'll bet I'm not far off. Remember there is NO "bad" publicity if you stay in the headlines ...you stay "hott"

When are all of you "supporters" going to realize, that this person is just a manufactured "talent" as are so many of today's "artists". The cash cow will be milked until it is totally dry. As in, no more profit for the creators and investors. It's that simple. Get over it. She's becoming a liability to the corporate machine that enables her. It's almost over. It's just a shame, for the kids sake that she was able to breed.

My question? Where are the children? Child Protective Services needs to swoop in and take those children to a loving home. IF Britney were anything but a celebrity, it would have happened already. Shame on you for being such a SH**ty role model!
