Sam Lutfi somehow got hold of Barbara Walters this weekend -- and fiwwed her in on Britney's mental problems -- saying they are "treatable." Praise Jebus!

Brit's ersatz manager, via Babwa on today's episode of "The View," says Spears has visited a psychiatrist and is in touch with her mother -- who arrived in Los Angeles last night.
