Britney Gets into the Skin Trade

3/12/2008 8:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

For someone who's in need of constant supervision, Britney Spears' new sitcom spot is just a smidge ironic – she'll be working in a doctor's office.

"How I Met Your Mother" creator Craig Thomas tells Usmagazine.com that Brit is playing a receptionist at a dermatologist's office who falls in love with the main character, Ted, when he comes in to have a tattoo removed. Thomas says he and his writers rewrote the show in 40 minutes to work Brit into the story.

Meanwhile, what was "Mother" co-star Neil Patrick Harris' reaction to the news? "I was shocked that Madame Spears was willing to come and do some acting," he tells ET.

Lachey Gets Grip on Reality, Again


Looks like it's time for Nick Lachey to take a break from his day job – vacationing.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Nick's next project will be an MTV reality show that's inspired by the classic Eighties series "Fame." The unnamed show will feature the students at the School for Creative and Performing Arts in Cincinnati, where Lachey went to school.

SJP and Carmen Electra also went to the school. That's talent.

Your "y'all" comments are so unecessary. I don't know why you think she talks this way or if you think it is cute

Do you really need to say "yall" everytime you mention Britney Spears? That's about as lame as "ding, dang." TMZ, your writers really stink to high heaven.

Trophy wife Slim and Trim!!!!    

what is the truth about what happened at the Ivey last week?

i heard that Brittney was there but all eyes were on the latest round between Tara and Stedman...Although Dina wasn't there Stedman was at Ivey promoting some book he has written.. he was being interviewed by a German reporter from "In Touch"... Tara (I can't believe they seat her at Ivey) came over and repeatedly asked Stedman why he didn't call her. At least Tara didn't attack anyone in the resturant suring this visit. After her pleading with Stedman Tara walked over to Brittney's table....Brittney didn't know who she was!!!!!

This is just another lame attempt for idiotney to show she has some talent. I am lost as to why the producers would even consider having that disgusting useless waste of flesh on their show. Maybe she gave them a ride on the brit express. Why not, every other male in hollywood who is a loser has.
