Britney -- Hot for the Help, Again

She's had alleged dalliances with her manny, record producers and professional escorts, and now Britney Spears may be hooking up with a guy who serves her food.

Life & Style reports that Brit has fallen for one Michael Marchand, a waiter at L.A.'s Mirabelle restaurant. The mag says that Brit fell for Michael earlier in the month when she had dinner at the eatery, and that "the chemistry was immediate." Since that night, the two have been on "at least" one date at Brit's mansion, and went out together a couple nights ago, at Mirabelle.
