Britney's Disastrous

Photo Shoot

7/23/2007 8:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0723_britney_ok_01_ex-1TMZ has learned that Britney's self-arranged photo shoot and interview with OK! Magazine was a complete disaster. We're told that the photos are so bad, execs at the magazine are, at this moment, trying to decide whether to report what actually happened -- or sanitize the truth to protect the pop train wreck.

According to multiple sources, Britney's behavior during the interview was "nothing less than a meltdown." She was, according to our sources, "completely out of it" during the shoot. The photos are "so bad" we've learned, that to publish them could "kill her career."

Apparently, Brit Brit's eyes rolled back in her head at one point, causing her to look half dead. Her mood, we're told, was extremely erratic. She took frequent bathroom breaks our source says, and each time she returned her mood would change. She was also completely paranoid during the entire interview, fearing at one point the ceiling was about to cave in on her. Out of control y'all!

We've also learned that Brit had some issues with hygiene on the set as well. At one point, Britney ordered up some fried chicken to munch on. We're told after she chowed down, she wiped her hands on a several thousand dollar dress that she was wearing for the shoot, staining it with grease. Yuck! One of her dogs also needed some assistance in the housebreaking department. Our on-set spy says that the dog pooped all over the floor, and Brit used (what else?) -- a dress to clean it up! How trashtastic!

As for how Brit looked for the photos, another nightmare. We've learned that OK! hired two of the best hair and makeup artists in L.A. to transform the once-bald beauty into something more presentable, but she wasn't havin' none of that. She refused to let the hired help touch her, opting instead for her "skanky friends" to do her hair and makeup. No wonder she always looks so fantastic!

And if you're wondering where her mom/publicist/lawyer/friend/ANYONE was to help her out, we're told that even her cousin Alli (who until recently was working as her personal assistant) couldn't deal, and is "done" with Miss Spears.

We'll see when OK! hits the stands this week -- if they actually have the balls to print the truth about what happened. We're guessing they don't!

A call to Brit's rep was not immediately returned. A rep for OK! would not discuss the upcoming issue.

Although the shoot may not have gone smooth, im sure they deal with a lot of celebs who are not robots and make things difficult for them. TMZ/AOL/ and is it People mag they own? and other media outlets resent that OK got the gig in the first place. Come on people question things a bit. Could this story have turned out any other way? of course it had to be mayhem and chaotic, just horrible I'm sure and OK is going to clean it all up lol.You mean the way you did for Paris TMZ?

Finally exposed - shes a wierdo    

Typical Slut-ney. Wiping up her dog's poop with someone else's $1000 chanel dress; she's total trailer trash, always has been, always will be. She's alienated her family, management and record company, so she's got no one to turn to. No one can now protect her from the media reporting what she's become: a sad, pathetic, mentally diseased waste of life.

So, slut-ney fans, like what your girl has become? Think she's a good role model for your kids or friends? Think your money is well spent on her pretend singing and her 10 minute concerts? Your girl is insane; it's time to move on to someone who has talent & is worthy of your adoration...

no sympathy for her here, this is proof that all the money in the world won't make you happy if your not fulfilled from within.

I saw on the news today that she had taken the children out on a boat without LIFEJACKETS. They did have a bodyguard and he was behind one of them who was climbing up steps wearing a diaper. They remarked it only took seconds, though, for a child to fall overboard and drown.

I feel sorry for this poor puppy and hope the bodyguard is looking after it.

THIS IS TRAGIC TO WATCH. And, don't think these habits are exclusively Britney's. I can name too many stars who emulate her that came before her, and are idolized by many. Marlon Brando, Barbra Streisand, are examples of filthy pigs with food all over the floor in their homes, and trash all around, dirty and unkempt, and they aren't the only ones. I was in their homes so I KNOW, so I don't talk frivolously. THIS IS SAD ABOUT BRITNEY AND WE ARE WATCHING HER IMPLODE. SOMEONE SHOULD STEP IN AND STOP HER. If hre parents were any good at all, she would not have reached this level, so they are not good parents, just used her for her money. Truly I pray she will soar instead of diving so low. This is pathetic we know so much about her. It makes me sad for her.

Cindy - you are 100% right with the Vanilla Ice analogy - Brits career is over and with some good investing, hell even bad investing, the 100 million or so she has right now would allow her to live an amazing life. She need to just focus on being a Mom and getting mentally healthy. I wish her the best, because it's looking like she could even lose her kids now. Its also obvious that she is on some type of drugs - a very drinks don't make you act that way.

Good God, wiping up poo with Chanel! I'm horrified, but not surprised.

What a downward spiral!

I just can't feel sorry for someone so unwilling to take any personal responsibility. I do hope she gets off of whatever she is on before she ends up dead. But she had everything and threw it away,hard to feel any compassion for her at all.

It's like a scab you can't stop picking!

Stay away from the press for a couple of months brit, or even a couple of days, till your head is cleared. Don't complain about the invasive press, then arrange a photoshoot interview with Ok.

STOP MAKING FUN OF HER. Britney has been used by her parents and not provided the love and direction she needed. She's worked through her entire childhood and beyond. This is frightful and tragic. PLEASE REACH OUT TO HER WITH LOVE AND DON'T MAKE FUN OF HER LIKE YOU HAVE IN THESE POSTS. Britney is having a meltdown no doubt, but didn't it occur to you with the right parenting, she and some of these other young stars would have never reached the lowest levels they have. PRAY FOR BRITNEY AND TRY TO HELP HER. DON'T PUT HER DOWN AND MAKE FUN OF SOMEONE WHO HAS WORKED SO HARD AND ISN'T BAD, JUST SICK NOW AND OVERWHELMED. She's in pain and emotionally unstable. DO NOT MAKE FUN OF SICK PEOPLE .. it proves who you are, and you are then worse. I'm sad for her.

Britney is just a woman trying to live her life.
She is beautiful.
The stress is so great on her because of all the negative comments about her.
Artists are eccentric, she has talent.
Why are people so hateful to this person? The bad attitudes toward her just cause her more problems.

I've never been a fan of Britney Spears, and even laughed at some of her blunders, but I think TMZ has become extremely malicious towards celebrities. Obviously this girl needs help and she's not getting it...so I guess TMZ would rather kick her when she's down rather than do anything else.

Talk about Trashy Harvey Levin, TMZ is definitely the trashiest.
