Britney Makes Unfunny Show Unfunnier

5/12/2008 4:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brit makes her second appearance on "How I Met Your Mother" tonight -- and while her acting skills still leave a bit to be desired, her chest does its best to serve as a distraction.

illinois, you are a frickin' retard. Cutting away, she doesn't know comedic timing?? Even the cast members said she knew her lines better than them and she has superb comedic timing. She's been performing professionally since age 8, was the star lead of a major off Broadway production at age 9, has sold more albums in the impossible American market in the last ten years than any other female musician - including Madonna - and you have the balls to make assinine comments like that?? From what vantage point?? The shallow end of the gene pool, no doubt. A$$hole.

Stop Blaming the Paps For Everything Brit Does    

Hi there, Hello Kitty and zmt. I think you are both right. I know that seems inconsistent, but consider this: There are TWO conservatorships here. One is a conservatorship of the person of Britney Jean Spears (i.e., a guardianship), the other is a conservatorship of the estate of Britney (her assets). California Probate Code section 1801 covers both of these, but there is a different standard for appointing each type of conservator. For the "person" type of conservatorship, section 1801(a) provides: "A conservator of the person may be appointed for a person who is unable to provide properly for his or her personal needs for physical health, food, clothing, or shelter ... ." This sort of suggests that one must have some kind of mental or physical problem. Now, Brit was taking pretty good care of procuring food, shelter and clothing for herself (well, perhaps not all of the clothing she should have), so it's a pretty safe bet that the court was persuaded that Brit was not properly able to care for her health. Maybe the court found there was persuasive evidence of some mental health concern, as she was twice admitted under psychiatric holds in January. The court does not have to make a final finding of metal illness unless and until it is presented with evidence at a hearing for a permanent conservatorship. The current conservatorship is just temporary.

For the "estate" type of conservatorship, section 1801(b) provides: "A conservator of the estate may be appointed for a person who is substantially unable to manage his or her own financial resources or resist fraud or undue influence." KInda sounds like the situation with Britney's "trusted" manager, Sam Lutfi, doesn't it?

Hope that's the answer you were looking for!

And, just to cover all the bases, section 1801(c) provides: "A conservator of the person and estate may be appointed for a person described in subdivisions (a) and (b)." Rather superfluous, but the legislature no doubt thought it should be said.

Gee whuz The big star of television will be on shortly. We all need to sit and watch Britney show us her talent!! The comeback was a big flop and her television acting is worse than her singing and dancing. We can all hope she will have a fit on the show and we can watch her meltdown!!! The show will be 30 minutes of crap!!!!!

I LOVE MY 3 CHILDREN THAT I DID NOT MURDER!!    

This show is stupid...I haven't even tried to watch it....I know Neil is gay, therefore, it is too hard to try and picture him now as a stright man on any t.v. show, and adding britney in it only makes the show even less attractive. Neil your gay, now you cant be taken seriously on a show as this one. You need to change the show to "How I met your father". To which then it will be about gay guys so I still wont watch it, there is enough of those shows on t.v. already that I can't stand to watch. Why do I want to watch big flaming, sissy men (if thats what u want to call them) trying to pass as women? Get over it!!! Attention gays!!

I, by accident, watched 2 or 3 munites of the talented Britney on television. The poor lady cannot sing nor can she dance and now we find out she sucks at acting. Britney might want to make a porn movie because no real acting talent is required to make the porno movie.

Regis where did you hear that the cast members said that Britney knows her lines better than them and that she has superb comedic timing? Tell us so we can see and read about this for ourselves.

He's just another Idiot    

PLEASE, TMZ, no more comments about Britney. She's on the road to recovery so leave her alone. If you insist on writing nasty news about people, write about the real deadbeat, money mooching, untalented morons in Hollywood like K-Fed and Denise Richards. Also, Heather Mills, Alec Baldwin, Star Jones, Rosie O'Donnell and Paris Hilton are all sleazy people we love to hate. Take a break from Britney. . . please.
