Candy to Britney: It's No Pap Smear

6/16/2007 4:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dear Britney:

You made me do it. I didn't plan to write another letter now. I took two weeks off from TMZ.com because I didn't feel strongly about what anyone was doing -- or else I couldn't decide which side to believe.

You've driven me back to my laptop to ask why, if you have to slither in and out of cars, do clumsy imitations of gymnasts and wear clothes that are just too tight, trashy or skimpy, do you have to pose in front of photographers all the time? We've seen the body parts, poses and clumsy attention-seeking tricks before. You're wearing out your welcome. Some people never can turn away from a train wreck, so who can blame the photographers for waiting for your next one? Do you really want captions such as TMZ's own "Victim of Pap Smear" and "Does Britney Change Clothes for Cash" to be your legacy? You can do much better.



Unlike some others who are famous for being famous, you initially earned the fame and respect you achieved. You were a giant star, a Mouseketeer, a singer whose song titles became part of everyone's vocabulary. You made some missteps. We all do. But, when you become more famous for hideous, irresponsible actions than accomplishments, it's time to step back and figure out where you want your life to go. So many young girls still see you as a role model. Give those kids a reason to look up to you. They're probably even tired of the endless speculation about what undergarments you may or may not be wearing. I know their parents would like you to move on and get dressed. Even the school uniform was more dignified.

You're doing all right with the wigs. I know the paparazzi have a bounty on your (wigless) head. I think it's great that you have a variety of wigs (some very stylish) when you go out in public. If you do feel you need to show how your hair is growing back, at least make a deal with a photographer to sell the photo and donate the money to charity. Do you know what a statement that would make?

Enough with the sorry grabs for attention. Deep down, especially for your sons, people want you to succeed. You can always get attention if you need it. Visit someone famous in jail and attract a zillion photographers if you're that addicted to fame. Americans like winners. We like those stories about what people do with second chances. How about a moratorium on train wrecks and some time out for paying back the fans who helped you succeed?

Best,

Candy Spelling

I think Candy Spelling is the voice of reason for hollwood because she is hollywood. she has money and clout, so many the celebrity type of people will listen to her.

i wish candy spelling would write letters and give advice every day. she is phenomenal.

Britney has a mental disease as an exhibitonist; the psychological need and pattern of a rare thrill carefully select their target audience and make the exposure brief, inconspicuous and apparently unintentional, but the flasher gains sexual gratification, above and beyond the sexual act itself, that is achieved by their daring bold behavior. This behavior is a fetish and to exhibit naked parts of the body to other people and the lewd conduct of shocking and having risky public sexual activity and/or bodily exposure which needs therepy treatment, maybe arrest for criminally lewd behavior.. or she's this way forever and whatever that means to her fans devotions when she doesn't improve, show some dignity and grow up, is up in the air. Ask Madonna, Lindsay, Paris and other skanky celebs if it is worth being labelled a ignorant repulsive slut.

Candy, don't you have anything better to do? If you really cared anything about Britney Spears at all you wouldn't be giving "holier than thou" advice in a public letter. You would be contacting her privately. A lot that you said in the letter is true, but how do you think this is going to help her? Britney needs some professional help and not just a rehab center.
Her constant "attention seeking behavior" and dependency on others needs some serious intervention, not a "preaching letter." Where is Britney's mother??????? Where is her father????????

Paige nest:
It's spelled RIDICULOUS. If you use the same word several times in one comment
a) Spell it correctly. May I recommend dictionary.com?
b) Consider getting a thesaurus or visiting thesaurus.com. Seriously, it may add some gravitas to the part about you being intellectual, which we still haven's seen anything of yet

And I think Candy is hilarious on so many levels. I don't think it's on purpose, which makes all the more entertaining. The best part is how she accuses Brit-brit of being an attention whore

If Candy Spelling REALLY wanted to help Britney, she'd send the letter directly to her instead of releasing it to a gossip site to be displayed for the world to read. Candy does make some sense (if she is really the one writing these), but it seems like she is desperate for some attention as well. Who can believe any of this crap anyway? Hollywood is a world of fake lying a-holes (and bad actors).

Too sad.... the path Britney has chosen to get her attention fix. Such a waste. Look outside yourself, use your celebrity for a greater purpose.

You know what Britney needs some motherly advise. Someone to tell her in public WEAR UNDERGARMENTS. Candy may not have been the best mother (we dont know what happens behind mansion doors) but atlest her daughter is respected (how do we know Deans marriage wasnt already over and they were together just for their child we dont know what happens behind their doors either)

You go Candy and I'm not sure if i missed it or no but did you put LiLo in her place too she needs a good "Mom" talking too to!!!!!

just asking    

Candy,
Please understand this doesn't help. If you care and want to give motherly advice to a woman who has a mother..., DON'T... This makes it worse.

She needs medical help with her ego, and selfesteem .....

She like her counterparts need to be out of the Hollywood scene for about 6months.

Go chill somewhere and do good for others. Get in tuned with the real world.

For God sake you have 2 children.

Tori wasn't the only one in that " relationship".

he knew he had a piece of paper saying that his di#$ belongs to the wifey and he CHOSE to get involved with tori " with his wife's belssings" to " futher his career or chance of staying on TORI'S show". So basically the old hoe tried to run game on the new hoe and in response BECAME the old hoe. Don't hate the game, big pimps. He took his flirting too far, but the wifey should have never put him in that position in the first place.

that's what she gets for sending her husband out there in hollywood trying to hustle somebody. she got hustled. buck up, move on, know better next time.

Thank you, Mrs. Spelling. Somebody had to say it. It is hard for me to believe how far Brit has fallen away from what is respectable. I suppose the earlier years were just an act, and now what we see is the REAL her. I do hope she gets a grip before her sons are old enough to be embarrassed and have their lives ruined by her.

x17 is like a britney fan site, each of her crotch and nipple stunts is published on this site as if it's a heroic act.....

no panties stunts: when she flashed her crotch to the paps at the gas station the paps were already there before her. it's likely she informed them in advance. why would a horde of paparazzi expect the trainwreck at a gas station getting her own gas?

They should start charging these celeb-sluts with public indecency. Any other person would be.
