Brit May Club for a Living

4/17/2008 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources tell TMZ Britney Spears is in negotiations with Bally Total Fitness to be a frontwoman for the company -- and backwoman, too!


Here's what we know. Brit's parents have both been talking to Bally about making a deal. Daddy Jamie has the power as co-conservator to make it happen. It all happened because Larry Rudolph, who is coming back to manage the Britster, has a close friendship with John Wildman, the Chief Marketing Officer of Bally.

During the negotiations, Brit has been going to the club at least once a day and up to as many as three times a day. She's training with two of the company's top personal trainers -- we're guessing one for the front and one for the back. She's also working with the company's nutritionist, who has put Britney on five to six quality meals a day. No Taco Bell, no Fanta ... life can really suck.

As of now, there is no deal -- just negotiations. We're told she isn't getting any money yet, but she's working out for free. As a company insider put it to us, "We're more interested in Britney Spears' health than her $19."

If she is willing and able to get her life and career back on track, then more power to her. Suffering from severe bi-polar problems is not something that I would wish on anyone. Standing on the sidelines watching while she was acting out, being bizarre and blaming everyone for her troubles as well as denying the fact that she even had any sort of problems, was hard to take.

She fought the conservatorship, but it seems to be a positive step toward her mental health and future. I hope the kid makes it both for her and her children.

Boris, who posted early on, is quite a character. I think the company can also do well without his $19. If Britney became a whore, it was due to her illness. I would wonder what Boris' excuse is for being hyper-sexual...just being a male? Britney is gaining weight because she is on drugs for her emotional disorder that ALWAYS cause weight gain. We've seen it in Delta Burke, Tipper Gore, and many others who get wisecracks tossed at them because the are gaining weight. It's extremely hard to lose the weight brought on by antidepressants and antipsychotics. If Britney is successful, she will be an inspiration to many, many people. But the more important thing is that she stay on the drugs. Weight gain is one of the most common reasons patients come off medications.

She needs to visit a Health Club, not do a commercial for one. She's fat not phat.

Smart move for Britney!! The singing and dancing career is dead and she needs another source of income. NFL and NBA players make more doing commercial work than they do playing their sport.

To #75 Ani: No one knows for sure what mental illness Britney has or if she has one at all for that matter. She has been gaining weigh since before she had her first baby.

This doesn't sound right. Going to the gym everyday three times a day is unhealthy. I'm pretty sure they call it exercise bulimia or something like that. No professional would ask her to do that.

Yeah, good plan there, Bally. Use a skank who is filled with cottage cheese, c-section scars, smokes all the time, and has boobs with nipples pointing at the ground. This dried up slut is not a picture of fitness, she is a picture of what happens when you abuse your body. Effin Gross!!!!

#63 -- I concur. Britney already has some great 'before' pictures. But can she do the work and have the discipline to produce the necessary 'after' pictures?

As for "We're more interested in Britney Spears' health than her $19." -- My assumption is that the free publicity for Bally's (here, among other places) as a result of this would make the whole thing worthwhile, even if they never strike an endorsement deal.

All along, Britney has made more money from endorsements than her music -- Analysis suggests that her main source of income at present is her perfume deal with Elizabeth Arden (which generates a lot more income than music sales or royalties, surprisingly enough). However, given her recent public image, I find it difficult to beleive that that deal will get renewed when it expires (at the end of 2008?). I assume that's why Jamie is trying to get Britney into an income-producing gig ASAP -- because the present money well is about to dry up.

To Oh Britney (currently msg #86): The reason Britney is wearing her shades at the gym is because she _always_ wears them. She never takes them off. Ever. She sleeps with her shades on and takes showers in them and makes love with them on. In fact, they have now merged with the skin on her face, and they can no longer be removed. As we speak, Britney is mutating into a new species that has permanent sunglasses growing out of their faces ... and permanent weaves intertwined with their hair, and a permanent cigarette attached to their lips, and a permanent Frappuchino growing out of one of their hands.
