Britney to Mom - No Time for You!

5/16/2007 8:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsThings have gotten so toxic between Britney Spears and her mom Lynne, that according to published reports, Brit wouldn't even visit her mother in the hospital -- on Mother's Day, no less.

The bewigged Brit, report the National Enquirer and Star (via MSNBC), has "cut off all communication with her mom" and is "flat-out refusing to speak" to Lynne, even ignoring her on Mom's Day when Mama Spears was hospitalized with pneumonia. That's not all -- Britney also reportedly didn't call her mom on her birthday, either.

Where's the beef? Brit is still "furious" that mom made her go to rehab, feels "betrayed" and "refuses to get over it," says a source.

Anna Nicole – Hated by Mama Virgie, Loved Implants


Speaking of mothers and daughters, Anna Nicole Smith's mom Virgie Arthur was "so jealous" of Anna that she hated her "so much," according to new excerpts from Smith's diaries. But if Anna's relationship with her mother was all about hatred, Anna loved -- loved -- her breast implants, writing that she was "so excited I could scream" just before she got her new silicone friends.

The diary clips were obtained by the AP, and are from the early years, 1992-94, including references to Smith's elderly oil tycoon husband, J. Howard Marshall. But most of the writing focuses on bad-boy boyfriends, rough sex, and in one poignant case, the fear of getting pregnant: "I'm so scared! How can this happen to me ... Cant do it!"

Paris – Watch Your Back in the Shower


There's more prison advice for Paris this morning, in the footsteps of open letters TMZ conveyed to Miss Hilton from Candy Spelling and Patty Hearst. Page Six spoke to Natalia McLennan, a former high-priced prostitute who served 26 days at New York's notorious Rikers Island, who tells the heiress, "It's the worst experience of your life." Among the indignities Paris will have to endure, says Natalia, are a full-body cavity search, being ogled by lesbian inmates, and "disgusting" food. "She'll want to make at least one good friend, like a Nicole Richie, to watch her back for her when she takes a shower," says McLennan. Uh, have you seen Nicole lately?

Party Favors: Kate Walsh Gets Engaged! ... John Mayer: Political Strategist? ... Gere and Shetty Cleared in India


Everything's just falling into place for "Grey's Anatomy" star Kate Walsh. First, she got her own spin-off series on ABC, "Private Practice," and now she's engaged -- to FOX exec Alex Young. Walsh revealed the big news to Usmagazine.com at Tuesday's upfronts, saying she was "on cloud nine." ... Pretty-boy rocker John Mayer is giving advice to none other than pretty-boy pol John Edwards, reports New York magazine. The younger John chatted with the slightly elder John at the recent Time 100 gala -- about how to reach out to "the youth" -- and how to watch YouTube videos that are longer than 20 seconds. The pair will be meeting again soon. ... Richard Gere and Shilpa Shetty are free after an Indian court dismissed the obscenity charges against them.

I don't understand the comment about Britney refusing to call her mother on her birthday - didn't she and her sister take her mother out to eat and Britney wore that trashy see through outfit? Their pictures were plastered all over. Just how many birthdays does Mama Spears have in one year?

The more dirt we dig up, the more we find out that Virgie is a rotten person. Howard, poor Anna, thank God you were there for her for 12 years and helped her through such a terrible and sad upbringing. Howard hopefully you are the one who can save Dannielynn from ever getting to know Virgie. Larry will need all your help. Larry, it doesn't matter what the Enquirer says about you, I am sure Virgie had something to do with paying Kerrick Ross for his story. What matters is that you can keep Dannielynn safe. I'm sure Larry and Howard can buy Virgie off. Any mother that sells all her photos of her daughter to Splash for 5,000.
will take money to go away. She doesn't care about Dannielynn. Virgie you make me sick.

Anna had breast augmentation so large that it was a source of pain for her. I'm sure her mother was not jealous of that, may of warned her against having that done to herself.
As a result of the implants Anna would have an excuse to take pain drugs and of course get hooked on these.
Anna was of age and her mother could only advise and sit back. Wait for the fall and hope she could be there to catch Anna.

This may be something young Britney Spears would learn from.

Most times a mother's love is like a net, the bad passes through not catching, the good is caught and the heart swells more with love for the child.

Brother Harold, S.J.    

WHY DOESN'T THIS BRITNEY BITCH HAVE A HUGE ARSENIC COCKTAIL AND PUT US ALL OUT OF OUR MISERY HAVING TO BE INFORMED OF HER COMINGS AND GOINGS (ESPECIALLY HER "COMINGS") AND HER OVERALL SLUTTISH BEHAVIOR. SHE'S UNMITIGATED TRASH, NO MORE THAN A CANCEROUS PIMPLE ON THE A**HOLE OF CIVILIZATION. (DITTO PARIS HILTON, LINDSAY LOHAN, AND ALL THOSE OTHER VOMITOUS TRAMPS THAT TMZ SEEMS TO EXPERIENCE SOME INEXPLICABLE THRILL METAPHORICALLY MASTURBATING OVER.) (AND YOU CAN THROW IN TOM CRUISE AND KINDRED GARBAGE.)

Jennifa O Jenny    

#63 - How did he rob Anna? Any proof of that? Do you really think Anna needed Howard's involvement to ask the shady doctors to put it under his name? If they're willing to prescribe her drugs she doesn't need to get high - I highly doubt they're above putting the prescription in Howard's name without Howard being involved in the transaction.

You have an extremely naive and overly simplistic viewpoint on the matter. Anna is the one to blame for how things turned out, period.

Thank Your viewpoint, in which you are entitled to as much as Iam to mine.
but if you do not know by now how H robbed her, then go and crawl under your shell again and please stay there.

A lawyer not having a clue as to why a bunch of highly addictive narcotics would be under his name?, no further comment

Stern has stated he dispensed the drugs to Anna. Why didn't he gradually wean her off, did he try. He either didn't want to or admit the drug abuse was beyond his capability .
I believe it was his source of control and lifestyle.

in the know    

It is normal for people to have disagreements with their parents. Britney is not a teenager any more. Her mother has acted as her manager, promoted her and gave her no chance to live a normal life as a kid and have friends. Her mother is reponsible for Britney's break down. Her loser father has never been around, thus Britney's poor choice in men and her desperate need for attention. I think Britney has done a wonderful job of coming around, with her kids as well as her constant dance lessons and recording. Have compassion for someone who never knew what it was like to be a kid and is still growing up.She made mistakes and she is dealing with them. She needs to grow up now and separate herself from her mother and become her own person.
