Parenting Coach to Britney: I'm Not a Potted Plant!

10/23/2007 2:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Britney Spears' parenting coach has submitted her report to the court, and it ain't pretty.

Sources say the two-and-a-half page report says Britney totally ignored the coach -- didn't even acknowledge her presence. The coach says she was unable to teach Britney anything, because Spears didn't want to listen.

The report, which was presented to the court yesterday and will be critical in determining if Spears should regain 50/50 custody, concludes that Britney often ignores her kids and lives in her own little world -- that Britney often disappeared and wasn't around the kids or the coach. We're told the coach has said Brit spends a lot of time on the phone and changing clothes.










And on another note y'all, that BritBrit paparazzo sock is still up for grabs on eBay!

Why FBI May Have Seized Copperfield's Stuff



David Copperfield is under the FBI microscope, and now TMZ may know why.

Last week, the FBI raided Copperfield's Las Vegas warehouse and seized digital camera equipment and a hard drive to a computer -- this, after a Seattle woman accused Copperfield of sexually assaulting her in the Bahamas.

Sources now tell TMZ Copperfield designed part of his show around "a system for picking up women." During his show, David goes into the audience and chooses women to come on stage. We're told that if David likes a girl, he'll use code words with assistants like "mama" and "secrecy." The assistants mark the women on a map of the inside of the Hollywood Theater at MGM Grand. After the show, the women are brought backstage -- and that's where the profiling begins.

The women are told that David may use them in his show when he comes to their hometown. They are then photographed with a digital camera, asked questions like, "What is your favorite men's cologne?" and "Where do you like to vacation?" We're told one of those vacation spots mentioned by staff is the Bahamas, where the accuser claims she was assaulted. Copperfield owns a cluster of islands in the Bahamas -- which he bought for $50 million.

This may explain the FBI's interest in David's camera system and hard drive. If the accuser is a woman who was brought on stage, the FBI would be interested in a possible M.O.

Copperfield's attorney re-issued his earlier statement in response to this story: "It is important these allegations be put into perspective. An unidentified woman has made serious allegations against David Copperfield. Although authorities have not revealed her identity to us, we know these allegations are false because David Copperfield has never forced himself on anyone."

Anderson Cooper: Armed and Fabulous



CNN golden boy Anderson Cooper is blowin' up -- literally!
Anderson Cooper
The 40-year-old news hottie showed up to a NYC screening of "Planet in Peril" this weekend, looking extra fit and buff. Check out those guns!

360 is not only the name of Coop's program -- it's also what he benches. Lift with the knees, Andy!



Heidi Montag on the Cheap


Heidi Montag: Click to watchUsually, the sight of a bikini-clad sexy blonde writhing around in the wet sand is hot ... somehow, Heidi Montag makes it ... hilarious.

Heidi and her unlovable boyfriend, Spencer Pratt, filmed her new music video last week -- with Spencer as sole cameraman to save money -- and it was appropriately cheesy! Our favorite is the boom box. Nice touch Spence.

Montag did some of her signature spastic Mariah Carey-wannabe hand movements -- while dancing around on a jetty -- a lone fisherman completely ignoring them as they filmed. You'll have to wait your turn to be oblivious.

I find it sad that someone who was once on top of the world has fallen to this level. Brittney is only an entertainer to me and I don't know her personally but she doesn't seem to be the same person that had so many fans not that long ago. I find it hard to believe that she could be the way she is now and have climbed to such fame. I can only hope that she finds a way to overcome the problems she is facing.

Britney isn't one of my favorite people. I personally have never cared for her. But I am a mother of four hcildren and I know how hard it is. Britney had no idea what she was getting into haveng two little ones so close together. I don't think she is a bad Mom. Just a young and inexperienced one. She does need help from this coach and I wish she would pay more attention, but I will NEVER say that she shouldn't be allowed partial custody of those boys. She is their mother. As immature and inexperienced as she is, she still loves them, and she is STILL and ALWAYS will be their mother. Unless she is abusive (physically or emotionally) she should be a part of their lives. Children need their Mothers.

She's rich, she doesn't need to run to Target to pick up tampons. She wants the attention, duh. It doesn't take a genius to figure out if you stay at home and lay low for awhile things will die down. The only thing sad about this whole situation is that she feels the need to recive negative attention.

sorry Brit I can see where your at with all of this, an unnnwelcome person now in your life it must be tough! Who does this person think she is a long lost friend? a family member? No she's a stranger !!!! and she feels like your mistreating her BOO HOO!!!! She should just sit back and watch and try to pretend she's not there, at the end of it all gracefully giveing you advice not running her ass back to the court telling the judge what he already knows. Yes I probably would treat her like a potted plant too... one that's sitting outside it's to bad she didnt like the treatment but working for the courts does not give her the right to make herself feel welcome into your home BUT if you treated the old hagg like a friend it would have gotten her and the judge off you that much sooner. Words of wisdom babe Have fun

OK, First of all, anybody who sticks up for Britney or admires her, deserves to get kicked in the face. Britney is trailor trash. She got her stupid self pregnant with two kids, who need a loving and caring mother. Thats not too much to ask for. But Britney being an attention whore, she dosen't give a crap for her poor boys. She puts herself in nice clothes, because it makes her feel better. Britney needs to get over herself, and stop wanting all the attention. Shes happy to get attention wether or not it's good or bad. Britney has no talent whatsoever, nor does she deserve those boys. I'm not a fan of K-FED, but I do agree that their most likely better off with him than stupid Britney. She needs to get her act together, and whoever is praying and whatnot for her need to stop. I don't give a crap about her, because shes digging her own hole. And sooner or later, shes going to go too far. I'm sure people could care less if she killed herself.
