And somebody lost her luggage!

You can't blame everything on the papparazzi or the media. There are some celebs we hear about all the time, and some we don't. Why? The people who stay at home or act like they've got sense when they're out in public, don't have anything to worry about. You can buy glass, but you can't buy class!

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

Do you really think she even cares? If she does, do you honestly believe she takes the responsibility of her children before partying?
Let's face it, there are times when we all need a "break" from our everyday living...but to be out so often makes me wonder when is "mommy time"
Britney is usually hanging out with other gals ( are any of them mothers besides her) other men ( are they fathers?) and an entourage of wanna be's
A nanny isn't supposed to nurture and love your child (children) the way parents do. However, I see more and more "celebrities" doing this and doing that while "another woman" raises their children. A nanny is supposed to HELP ...I repeat HELP ...not RAISE your children...that is where parents go wrong...they have the children...but pass responsibility onto another. SHAME on THEM!

Come on, Brit is a nice piece of stock!!! All she needs is someone to give her a good banging and everything will be fine. I'll volunteer!!!!

Let's get Rosie involved here. She'll get to the bottom of it all. No, I won't bang her. That is the job of The Donald, and he can't wait to get at it!

The reason for bringing up the spelling errors? How about because it sometimes can be quite dificult to decipher what people are trying to say.
It's not a matter of being educated or not...it's a matter of having something right at your fingertips and being too damn lazy to use it!

Britney has been ill for a long time, deranged even. Remember that Las Vegas wedding ? After the annulment, she meets K-Fed and following a too short "courtship" , bang then another wedding, to a man already a father of a young daughter and his girlfriend pregnant. I knew from the start that Britney was heading for big trouble and I am no genius. Why oh why did she go and have those two babies, poor angels. Now, please people, stop being cruel and stop the name-calling. Britney needs medical help and soon. Let's hope her mother will intervene and have a court order Britney to seek help ASAP, this is an emergency. As for people calling her all kinds of terrible names, this is horrible, maybe you too need medical attention.

Is Britney's Baby in Danger?

It's been a year since Britney Spears caused world-wide controversy after she failed to put her son Sean Preston in a car seat while trying to escape the paparazzi, and in true form the 25-year-old pop star decided to celebrate the milestone this year -- with more car seat drama.

On February 12, Spears was spotted in the backseat of a car in Manhattan with her two sons; Sean Preston, 17 months, and Jayden James, 5 months. While she no longer drives around with her sons on her lap, one expert insists she's still not getting it.

"She has 5-month-old Jayden James forward facing," child safety seat advocate Alisa Baer of thecarseatlady.com tells Usmagazine.com.

"To decrease the risk of serious spinal cord injury and death, kids must be at least 1 year old and at least 20 pounds before riding forward facing. It also appears that Sean Preston's straps are way too loose -- they appear to have slipped down to his elbows -- again the same mistake she made earlier with him."

Sorry, but you've been taken for a ride...

When representatives for Britney were contacted, they said, flat out, that rumors that she checked into rehab are just plain false and untrue. Did the individual at TMZ.com who wrote this story, even try to find out the truth? Apparently, he/she was only interested in getting their weekly Mercedes Benz payment! LOL!!

I'm actually a little confused. What is she on is she an alcoholic or a drug addict? I honestly dont think she belong's in rehab. Maybe she just like's to drink. I was told that anyone who consume's more than 2 alcoholic drinks a week can be labeled an alcoholic. I was labeled alcohol dependent by a doctor but I go month's without drinking. Honestly she alway's look's sober she doesn't act all that drunk to me. I dont see any evidence that she is an alcoholic or a drug addict. I think people want to blame her behavior and look's on something so they blame it on some drugs or alcohol. She actually act's preety normal. She does dress kind of trashy. But her body is not that bad she's not obese her skin is really smooth. Her face is very fat but I think she's one of those people that when she gains weight it go's straight to her face. I think she look's better than Beyonce, and Sandra Oh and Jennifer Aniston those women have more uglyness than her.
