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.

Well    

Sounds like a recreation of a Gia photoshoot...except Gia always looked good. Sadly, Brit may die just like Gia did if she keeps this up.

The first step in getting help is admitting you have a problem...clearly she is in another state...of denial!! Her family cannot help her unless she wants to be helped. I'm beginning to wonder if she doesn't have a death wish of sorts. She won't make it to 40 at this rate!

What happens when she runs out of money? She obviously doesn't have the brains to get a real job. She is such a mess and never works, it is only a matter of time before the money runs out, especially the way she loves to spend. Someone needs to slap this little girl and get her back on the road to reality.

All of you that are putting TMZ to the dogs need to think about where you read this "crap" at. If you weren't on here reading this story you wouldn't have the need to make all the stupid comments you have.

Brit, I loved you when you made your first big hit , and I thought you were hot. Whatever happened to you, I wish you could see you REALLY need professional help, and maybe a year on a deserted island to gather your wits. Bless you girl!

I can't believe this really happening to her already - OK Mag, uh come on now - she wanted the interview, and now were hearing this, this is (well hopefully untrue) - or if this is true, then the bitch is done with her career, I hope kevin had nothing to do with this - if he did, I kill the bastard -

Britney is so out of control that I worry she will end up dead at an early age. I don't like her but do not wish that upon her. However, some stars shine bright for a moment and then they are out. Some of the most memorable celebrities have died an early age because of their poor choices that affected their behavior. Britney, for the sake of your children and family please seek help before the ones who love you are visiting your gravesite.

You snobs! Can't believe everyone's so upset about her dog's behavior, or her appetite for greasy fried chicken, or her skanky friends. All those things are perfectly acceptable back at her trailer, and everyone in the trailer park is real nice to her too.

It's unfortunate that being rich allows you to be much more self destructive than the average person. It seems that the public feeds on it. Britney is in need of serious help. No joke intended. She has spun out of control and it is possible she will meet tragic consequences soon. Her paranoia is real. But paranoia can lead to tragedy. Someone, most likely her mom needs to fight her for guardianship of her person and conservatorship of her estate. The problem is when you have a wealthy person like this, those close to her are afraid to put their foot down because they may be cut off financially. Britney is a good example of what is happening all over our country where alcohol and drugs are melting us down. This girl is wacked. But she's got resources. She doesn't have to sell her body to get her next high. She's not going to loose her job because she doesn't need one. And if you make her mad she'll bring out her lawyers who will fight you off rather than tell her the truth about her lifestyle. Britney is not at the end. She's rushing toward a final showdown with her life and it is coming soon. And she will be blaming everyone. She's sad and pathetic. One day someone will make a movie about her demise, just like Anna Nicole. The difference is with Britney her demise is happening in the public. Whoever protects children in California needs to get those kids. This woman is dangerous to herself and her kids. And pretty soon if she's not careful or doesn't already have some financial protection in place she's gonna be flat broke. Someone at OK magazine should have figured out how to get some of her urine and find out what she's on. Because I don't think it's just alcohol.

I believe that this is highly exaggerated and distorted. Do you know what Britney said? What was it that she reported about her mom? The narrative is approaching urban legend -- of the Pretty Baby variety... stage mom arranging "interviews" with the prepubescent child... echoes of Jon-Benet Ramsey, too.

It's tragic.

This sounds like the sequel to the Anna Nicole Smith story...Britney needs to "change" just like Paris did...LOL..speaking of Paris, I think both her and her ex BFF Britney have the same dog...how weird is that?
