Out a Day Later

TMZ is told that Britney checked in at the urging of riends and family, after being seen intoxicated in public places and was so "exhausted" on New Year's Eve she collapsed.

Britney spearsAccording to TMZ sources, Britney is on her way back to Los Angeles.

Do we really want Britney to be the next Anna Nicole? Britney was thought of as America's little sweetheart at one time (in the distant past). Most of us have watched her grow up. When she married the bad boy, we hoped she would soon come to her senses. When she finally did, everyone was happy for her (remember how cute she looked on Dave Letterman?).

But now... to see how she dresses, how she looks when she's out, watching her stumble around... it's just sad. Where is her family, her "people", her publicist, her real friends??? She could have turned this whole thing around... she could have been the cute young pop star again, being a loving and doting mother to her two precious babies, getting her life back on track, etc.

Sorry to ramble, but I'm just shocked and saddened by Britney's choices these days. I really hope that she doesn't end up like Anna Nicole.

all you people ragging on Britney are probably the same ones who talk sh!t about Anna Nicole. now if Britney ends up just like Anna, you'll all be saying r.i.p. blah blah blah. THINK ABOUT IT. some pretty mean comments come out of people with no obvious lives of their own.

In a way I feel sorry for Brits. She is shoveling happiness away w/ both hands.
All that really matters are those 2 beautiful kids she has.
But she is ending up like a E true hollywood kids story
Careful what you wish for...

I think she’s bonkers, has manic-depression/postpartum out the yingyang, not to mention massively screwed up priorities, but she knows exactly what she wants and how to get it.

Ladies and Gentlemen…she WANTS to lose her kids.

K-fed is history, she realized that she fucked up, that children were way more of a responsibility than she bargained for (instant self-gratification much?)she misses her old life and wants to party like its 2001 all over again, like nothing has changed.

Her children are the only thing the stand in the way, and this KILLS her, not too mention that she now has living breathing reminders of her mistake. She wants to get rid of them in a way that won’t make her look like a total bitch and blow her cover for world adoration, so her logic is to live it up, look like “Hot Mama”, get popular again, hang out with younger, newer starlets to reach a new and improved fan base, and wean herself away from her babies and vice versa.

She goes to divorce court, loses custody, and BINGO. They are now K-feds total responsibility and headache, which leaves her free to slither around with pythons and film more greasy videos.

Now she’s a edgy, controversial pop star, the sexy girl next store with a bad-girl streak. OOOH, she’s so WILD. She LOST HER KIDS.

Nice try Brit. You’re as transparent as your clothing.

#196..people were happy for her after she left k-fed..that you are right about..but now people could care less since she went around with no panties and has a pic of her crotch out on the net...her kids are going to see this somehow when they older and it's a damn crying shame.

Another member of the "i am a good mother crew." I am so sick of hearing how Anna Nicole was a good mother and was so abused by her mother. Now we have Britt following in ANS footsteps. IT IS ABUSIVE to subject children to a stoned out mother!!!!! Children depend on their mothers to take care of them not the other way around. Get a grip or give the children to someone who will give them what they need. Britt you look like shit!!!!

Personaly feel this was all a Publicity Gimick. She hasn't been the spotlight of massive attention since Anna's death.

Massive publicity for her having Checked in and Checked out of Rehab....and here we are 200 something posts later giving into her and making her NEWS!

Go to Rehab Spears, DO IT FOR YOUR KIDS, I don't know you, you might very well be a good mom, but when NOT on the Party scene. Lie in the Bed that you have made and take care of them 2 little cutie pies, THEY are your future!

My two cents    

If you ask me, this chick WANTS the courts to take away her kids -- she doesn't want to play mommy anymore. This way, she gets rid of the kids and blames it on her past troubles. I guess this beats drowning her kids.
