as far as shaving her head is concerned....probably not a bad thing! I'm sure it was falling out by the handfull due to the excessive bleaching, coloring and hair extentions. Shave it off and give it a rest, it'll grow back.....low maintenance!

Britney, honey, you need help. Take some time away, talk to somebody, forget about Kevin and trying to impress the world!!! Do something you enjoy, take care of you!!! You have to love yourself first before others can love you. Just slow things down, and take some time out.

Social services where are you? Take the kids and let her go on her way to where ever! No one can force help on her unless she agrees..Taking those children to protect them may wake her up! But no matter they need to be taken away from her for their own protection and now!

Britney needs help. If she is careful - who knows she might be the next Anna Nicole Smith. Hopefully her family will become the missing link she is desperately in need of.

Britney,
Grow up your children need you they didn't ask to come into this world you wanted them. Act like a real mother before you lose them. If you need attention that bad
go to group therapy. All eyes will be centered on you.Enough already stop being an embarrassment to your family.

Brit needs help    

#27- Jessica,honey. Obviously Brit isn't just going out and blowing off some steam after being home with her children all day. There is a difference between going out OCCASIONALLY and being at different clubs every night doing the things that she obviously felt that she needed rehab for. Brit is definitely out of control for whatever reason. When you are dingle, yes you can go out and do whatever you want ot becuase you are single, but when you bring kids into the picture then your priorities should change. When you are a mom, you should be the one tucking your little ones in most nights not various nannys so, I am not judging her, but stating the facts form my own personaly experience. And if you are doing the same things and feel it is okay then maybe youand Brit should go in rehab together.

GEE.....I CAN'T IMAGINE A BETTER WAY TO GET SOME OF THE MEDIA COVERAGE OFF ANNA AND ON TO BRITNEY!
WHAT A LOAD...DID SHE HAPPEN TO LET HER " HEAD SHAVE " BE FILMED AHH, BY ACCIDENT..HOW ABOUT PULLING THE SHADES !!!
THE PUBLIC IS CONSTANTLY BEING USED BY THE RICH AND FAMOUS AS IF THEY AS DAFT AS ALOT OF YOU ACT.
SHE'S STRESSED, SHE'S OVERWHELMED? YEAH, YEAH, IT COMES WITH THE PAYCHECK...AND AS FAR AS THE CRUD ABOUT THE TWO BABIES UNDER THE AGE OF TWO..WELL, IT MUST HELP A WEEE BIT THAT THEY HAVE ROUND THE CLOCK NANNY'S TO HANDLE SUCH THINGS FOR THE RICH AND FAMOUS!!
HER POOR CHILDHOOD, THE RUSH TO GROW UP, THE YOUNG CHILDREN AT HOME, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH..MAYBE SHE SHOULD TRY DOING ALL THAT WITHOUT ALL THE MILLIONS AS A BUFFER!! SEE HOW SHE FAIRS THEN...IT'S CALLED THE REAL LIFE...
THE PUBLIC IS JUST BEING LED AROUND IN ANOTHER WHIRL OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS ....TAKING YOU FOR A RIDE. SOME MORE OF THE SAME RIDES WHICH ALLOW THEM THEIR BILLION DOLLAR MANSION WHILE YOU STRUGGLE TO MAKE YOUR RENT AND MORTGAGE PAYMENTS!
AT LEAST IT WAS SOMEONE WHO SHAVED HER HEAD AND CAN AFFORD THE 50,000 WIG FOR WHEN SHE NEXT MEETS THE REPORTERS WITH ANOTHER CHAPTER FOR YOU TO SINK YOUR TEETH INTO!!

She needs to grow up and think about the kids she wanted so badly. Shes making k fed look like a pretty good parent right now. Some one from childrens services should be taking a long hard look at the way shes behaving and think about the welfare of the kids since she doesnt seem to care

Its a good thing brits kids are being raised by the nannys instead of her. Maybe they have a chance at growing into decent human beings instead of trash like their mother. Where are brits parents in all of this? Dont they care that their grandchildren are being neglected by the one person who is supposed to be caring for them?

If i was her mother, i would put her in a car and drive her to rehab. She needs help. She should give Courtney love a call and see what to do next.
