OK! Goes for It!!

7/24/2007 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In a surprising move, OK! Magazine says they're going to show Britney as she really was on the day of her disastrous photo shoot -- the good, the bad and the unbelievably ugly!

In an exclusive statement to TMZ, OK! Editor-in-Chief Sarah Ivens said, "OK! Magazine spent a heartbreaking day with Britney Spears and witnessed first-hand an emotional cry for help that will leave you shocked and sad. This week, on newsstands Friday, the truth will be told."

As TMZ first reported, Britney had a complete and total meltdown during the interview and photo shoot. OK! was faced with a huge decision; to run the horrifying photos as is and risk ruining their relationship with Brit (and potentially her career), or run a sanitized -- and untrue-- article.

In the end, it appears as if OK! chose journalism over Hollywood. OK! is OK!

The best thing that could happen to these girls (Lindsey, Brittney, et al) is for the media
to ignore them. No pictures, no videos, no news of any kind. I agree with many of these
posts that say so much focus and attention on their behavior makes america look stupid
to the rest of the world when there are so many more important issues and people to
follow. Plus if all this attention is contributing to their antics or problems give them the
break they are apparently needing and just leave them all alone. The public is sick of
them and feeding into their narcisism is only making them worse. We have become way too accepting of this kind of behavior; the constant DUI's, arrests, out of control
behavior....we need to return to a time where it wasn't cool to risk your life and the lives
of those around them. And when bad behavior had bad consequences.

My comment to #121 is that no matter where they live they will only take their problems with them. Both girls need major help and without their consent they will never make it. In other words they need want to get helped.

This just makes me so sad......I look at celebrity news in hopes to daydream about all the wonderful lives these people have and yet...it doesn't look so wonderful! Everytime I come on here something else sad has happened. I love this site, I just wish these people would get it together and get back to the old Hollywood feel!

No one is saying that she is a good or bad mother or person just that she has a definite problem. Maybe you could help her., but not by babying her yoiu must be tough and strong. I wish you all the luck in the world M.J.

That is what happens when you give trailer trash money. Parents who allow there daughter admire and follow Spears, Hilton, and Lohan should be ashame of themselves. Think would you like your teenage daughter be like this. As a mother of two girls I say HELL NO!

OK Skeptic    

Wait, am I confusing too many different stories this past week, or isn't OK! also the rag that bought and then buried the Nick & Vanessa explicit sex pix? Wow, those people are absolutely the height of gossip rag hypocrisy. But I guess you could also say they're sort of like a Ladbrokes oddsmaker on celebrity status. It would seem they've calculated that Ms. Spears is put-a-fork-in-her done for good, and they can diss her freely. While odd as it may seem, they would appear to be betting that Nick & 'Ness may yet wring a few more minutes from their fast-fading fame, out of which OK! will repay itself for burying the good stuff.

Who cares about Britney spears, lindsay lohan, or paris hilton? Is our society so depraved they seek personal gratification through women who are an embarrassment to everyone around them. Are they good role models for young women or mature women? hardly. They are three women who have a lot of money that obviously do not know how to handle it. If they wanted to gain positive attention, how about volunteering their time, donating some of their money to a good cause (e.g., ASPCA), or start a foundation for young women to help mentor them, get them through school, college and become contributing adults. These women are contributing nothing of any consequence. Regardless if they sing well or know how to manipulate the press, they have demeaded and demolished any good with their behavior. Thank you

What we have here is an emotionally immature 20 something that has been handled all her formative years by handlers without any guidance. A totally catered to child that has started to grow up chronologically showing no coping skills so they melt down or pursue drugs and alcohol.

The media perpetuates the story for ratings on the back of her breakdown like most child stars do, when the ride is almost over.

This poor kid with limited talent unless it is synthesized electronically now realizes it is almost over struggling for her life, yet the industry of child talent moves forever onward with out her - you would melt down too.

She is probably a nice kid - however - not prepared for life after the trip.
