Alli Sims and ... What the Funk?!

Alli Sims, blandish ex-assistant/Spears cousin, cruised to Tao Beach at the Venetian yesterday and copped some major swag. But- wait. Is that ... Shannon Funk?!?!? Now we're not certain... but it sure does look like Brit Brit's fired assistant who was served with papers in the ongoing custody debacle and who blabbed all over OK! Magazine. Don't fake the Funk?

Britney Jean was nowhere around -- maybe she was rehearsing.

Ooh gurrl... we love a mystery!
