Psychiatrist has Britney Spears committed

Britney Spears restrained in ambulanceBritney Spears was rushed to hospital by ambulance early Thursday morning. Her manager, Sam Lufti, and her psychiatrist decided to call police because of her strange behavior, including her inability to sleep – she hadn’t slept since last Saturday. Britney, who was sitting on the floor drinking hot chocolate when paramedics arrived, did not resist, willingly being placed on a gurney. She’s been placed on a 5150 hold, which is a 72-hour confinement of a person deemed to be a danger to themselves or others. This is the second time this month Britney was taken by ambulance to hospital. Several weeks ago, she refused to hand over her sons to her ex-husband and locked herself in a bathroom with her youngest boy, Jayden James.

    Good Lord! She truly is coming apart at the seams! And people still defend this pathetic train wreck??

    She had her sons taken away from her because she a mentally ill unfit mother!!! And she is responsible for her own troubles and it is high time she took responsibility for her actions!! What part of that do you kids not understand???

  3. K • January 31, 2008 @ 1:20 PM

    WOW! About friggin’ time. Hopefully this time her and her family take this VERY seriously and resolve her issues once and for all. Maybe then we will never hear of her again in the headlines. Enough is enough! I’m sooo sick and tired of hearing about her. Everytime you change the channel it’s Britney.

    Who cares?! I’m too excited about the Hannah Montana concert movie to bother with Britney right now.

  5. Kevin Fe_DaMan • January 31, 2008 @ 1:46 PM

    Give me a break! Britney is a media whore to begin with, if she isn’t in the daily spotlight-good or bad, she probably figures out a way to get in it, FAST! Haven’t all of you noticed this often enough, there really are some celebrities who can’t stand it when they are NOT being talked about? I’m not going to say much about her current situation but I’ve often mentioned in the past to others, we don’t often hear of that many celebs who keep getting into so much trouble. Sure there are some but this one-Britney, seems to keep doing just enough to get her name in the spotlight.

    Who’da thunk K-Fed was the normal one huh?

  6. Karen • January 31, 2008 @ 2:12 PM

    Alrighty then….Hannah Montana? I should come back more often, this other Karen seems to like to be funny. Cute. Actually I do have a kid who likes her and at least I would only have to pay a movie price and not the prices I hear some scalpers are getting for her concert tickets! Who is stupid enough to pay 13,000 for four tickets anyways?

    I guess Summer came sooner than I thought it would. It was only a matter of time this happened to Spears. Now, where are those guys who love her so much? Its funny to read how they defend her all the time.

    I blame a lot of this on Brit herself. So I am not defending her. However, you have to admit that we have made her this way as well. If it were not for the fact that “WE” go out and buy the magazines and buy her albums and “WE” did not make such a big deal about her then this post would not even be happening. I do think that it is about time that she got the help that she needs. I just hope they keep her in there till she gets it!

  11. Derek • January 31, 2008 @ 5:25 PM

    Image this happening to you, your sister or brother, your Mom or Dad and maybe your best friend, husband or wife…

    My heart and prayers go out to anyone suffering from any form of addiction or mental illness.

    It’s the papparazzi, late night comedian talk show host (Davis letterman,Conan O’brien, Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimble and all other comedians & all forms of media or people that are making mal informed, ignorant, judgemental and un-Humanistic comments like laughing at her, because she has a mental illness?

    Come on all you people…What if you were afflicted with some kind of disease…How would you feel if someone made fun of you if you had an addiction illness (low life junky), a mental illness (what a crazy nut), any form of cancer (don’t you look funny, you lost all your hair…Now we can call you mr. Clean or Conehead), heart attack (You know you were just asking for it),ADD/or ADHD (Settle down you Hyperactive monkeys and try and stay still for two minutes), diabetic (You asked for it you fat cow). These comments wouldn’t make you feel very good, now would it?

    Where is your Mercy, where is your Compassion…Where is your Divine Love?

    for cryin’ out loud….let all the “experts” keep to themselves already, and stop writing all their expert books about their vast knowledge and brilliance with treatment …

    end result, like ledger, if she really doesn’t want to do anything about her situation, she never ever will. let nature take its course, one way or the other. but leave it alone otherwise. all the experts and all the cameras and all the dr phils sure aren’t going to fix it …

  15. tributegirl • January 31, 2008 @ 7:55 PM

    Wow, it’s about time they committed her. Unfortunately it’s only for 72 hours. I think she needs a LOT longer than that. What finally prompted the doc to do this? It should have been done long ago. Can you imagine sitting on your floor drinking hot chocolate, & the paramedics suddenly arrive? She didn’t resist, I’d be freaking!

  16. KJ • January 31, 2008 @ 9:02 PM

    Yeah, just like the rest of the world, I can’t get enough of Britney’s situation. Is it because we are fascinated by her success, and because of shear jealousy, we love to see her crash? Or,do we just like to say to ourselves “sure the fame would be great, but who needs the crap that comes with it?” so that we can feel better about our own lives? The bottome line is, she does (more than likely) have some kind of a mental illness. I am no expert, but not sleeping for 5 days is a symptom of a few mental illnesses. And if she is mental ill, it is something she will probably have the rest of her life. But let’s not forget, there are 100’s of thousands of people who suffer from mental illness, and some of these people are living in the streets for lack of financial support. I am sure she is in good hands, and I too feel great empathy for her. As I said before, with all her money…..I still wouldn’t want her life.

Now and more importantly she has lost the children she loves WHAT A WORLD WE LIVE IN !!!! my sympathies go out to her. get well soon Britany you were so much fun when you started out Get well and Good luck to You.

  21. Chris • February 1, 2008 @ 6:53 AM

    Britney clearly has some serious issues and although most of us should not make it our business to assess or judge her, it is more than likely that she SUFFERS from some sort of mental health issues. She clearly needs some help, but will not be able to do so until she decides that she wants it. That being said, I agree that the best interests of her children are important right now. I do hope that Britney and her children will be able to reunite when she is healthy enough to do so. In the mean time, I am empathetic towards Britney who is suffering right now, and under the public eye. I wish her all the best and hopes she feels better soon! For the rest of you who continue to make such ignorant comments, I hope wish you and your family the all the best and hope no one you knows ever suffers from a mental health issue, because clearly you do not understand. God bless.

  23. Ann • February 1, 2008 @ 7:09 AM

    Was Brittany ever checked out for post partum depression? Maybe a mix of that, the media hownding her her kids taken from her, and a divorce,it has to build up on a person. The girl couldnt go anywhere with her kids and she would be surrounded. I think the media cameras should be arrested for invasion of privacy, it is against the law to stalk people I thought.

  24. CHRIS • February 1, 2008 @ 7:18 AM

    This has become very very serious..After she had her Children I believe Britney starting to feel alot of post-partum depression.

    Fedeline didn’t help he was always out with his buddies and she had no support.

    She had enough and filed for divorce…

    Don’t make fun of her, Walk in her shoes, I suffer from depression and I used to drink to forget..but the next day is not pretty. I also couldn’t sleep because my mind was racing, my body was tired but my mind kept me up.

    I went to get help. Britney needs medication for her anxiety and for more serious problem.

    Britney..leave LA and go back to your family and get healthy.

    Have compasion because one day you might wake up and feel weird…My 30 year fight with Depression and Cronic Anxiety happened over night..and it has been one hell of a ride and I can’t have children because Im unstable at time.

    GET WELL BRITNEY!!! LEAVE LA AND GO HOME

    WITHOUT HEALTH YOU HAVE NOTHING, Money doesn’t make people happy.

  25. mar • February 1, 2008 @ 7:39 AM

    I think this whole ordeal is ridiculous, if her family would have stepped in a long time ago, then this would never have happened, you have a young adult making decisions that she is obiously not capable, her mother pushed her since she was little, to become this huge star, and look where it got her, Britneys mother should be charged and sent to jail for bad parenting and neglect, I think personally that Britney has post partum and it has been out of control since her first child,, K Fed is no better a parent, he is sitting back and laughing at all of this, this was probably his plan all along, the rest of us are along for the ride..

    You know it’s no wonder this girl has come apart! Other celebs have said it’s deplorable how the media treats her! The problem is she feeds off the cameras so in turn she’s turned herself into this media Liz Taylor type. Who’s just so outrageously over the top you can’t help but shake your head and worry for her.

    In all honesty I dont feel bad her to much. Silver spoon mouth? hmmm but I do however feel terrible for her boys. This media will live forever and when her kids are full grown they will have to deal with this whole ordeal. I mean I’m sure the media will be after them quickly asking questions “Do you remember the winter of 08? When your mother went crazy, I know you were young but what were you thinking?” something silly like that or the likes.

    It’s really to bad that it has gone this far for this poor girl. I have watched her each time she has come out with new songs & her videos were worse in the way she dressed. It was very noticeable she was getting in over head. So many people have tried to help her & she has refused help. You think when your close to have loosing your kids that you think twice about what you were doing. Well i just hope she finds help & accepts it if not she will end up like Heath Ledger. i hope that does not happen.

  34. LUROBERT RAHN • February 1, 2008 @ 8:39 AM

    This young woman needs to be in the hospital and have treatment for 6 months straight through without any early release,that is the only way for her to heal emotionally and mentally.
    Instead of making fun of her and slandering her, pray for her well being.

  35. Maria • February 1, 2008 @ 8:41 AM

    This is such a waste of a human life all created by the hollywood fame machine, us thy buying , watching public ,the paparazzi, rag mags and shows.If this was not taking place , day in and day out, this nice young girl would have made it just fine.Granted her actions at times have been wild and insane. But look at what the machine has told her year after , year in order to get that next $ out of her. The lack of compassion, empathy and concern for the welfare of another human being is just another sad statement to the statement of our sick and twisted society. That one takes pleasure in one’s troubles, train wreck behavior and can’t wait to see their next form of downfall. Why do you think we have split families, no moral ethics of right and wrong,kids killing kids, adults killing adults, conflicts in other regions of the world, bulling that is out of control in classrooms, workplaces, and in many of our movies and TV shows, the constant barrage of get and be rich it will solve anything, do whatever it takes mentality to get there and to hell with who is in your way ?!?! Yet people sit there on camera , poke fun at her, her family, and constantly make comments and ask such rediculous questions which are crass, rude and quite immature in order to get a ” great $ shot ” and leave to then go make up yet another fabrication in order to sell that paper or magazine. If people taught their kids about hope, honesty, empathy, hard work ethic and compassion for each other, there would be a significant drop in the amount of crap that goes on in this beautiful place we call home “earth”. I hope and pray that the professionals treat her and help her to cope better and have strategies to help her with her issues, so this does not happen in the future. I pray for her mental health recovery, the healing for her family and true friends and that she returns well again and contributes to society in a meaningful way. As she had been doing, like her camp for disadvantaged kids,and doing the job she loves to do making the music, videos and tours she loves to do. Good luck kiddo!

    Anyone with a mental illness should not be laughed at. One day you could wake up just like that so count your blessings and that you have such a “great life”. I hope she gets better and maybe she will come out of this a different person in the end.

  39. JK • February 1, 2008 @ 9:09 AM

    I feel bad for her. As a child I’m sure her parents pushed her into performing. Singing, Mickey Mouse Club, etc, etc. She’s been on a wild roller coaster since being a kid! She made tons of money, and earned it, she worked really hard with a lot of criticism. It’s a wonder she made it this far without a break down.
    As a mother myself, if something happened that my kids were taken from me, I’d be freakin’ mental case too. I can’t imagine spending a day away from my kids, let alone having them gone. I would be devastated..as I’m sure Britney is.

    It’s time for her to smarten up, grow up, and realise that it’s time to be a good role model for her boys. If she truly wants to be a part of their lives, she’s gonna have to finally put their lives before hers. She needs to move away from all the Paparazzi and press and limelight and just settle down into a ‘normal’ life.

    I hope she gets better and makes a full 180. Your boys need you Britney. Get yourself healthy, then have fun and enjoy being a mommy, and focus on being the best Mommy on the planet.
    Good luck.

    What do you expect from this girl….Her parents basically sold her into a business they were too busy counting the cash and forgot to give her the basic tools to be a successful human being. they used and abused her. and when she is starting come apart they take until now to take any action…..look at her parents and her management for someone to blame. Now the real fight begins will her parents or the manager get POA of the Money Cow is they have her deemed unfit. I hope somebody finally can get through and help her find peace and contentment and allow her to be a human being without those $$ signs.

    I have worked in california with mentally ill people, people that are really truely Crazy because of imbalances in their Brains. things like major depression, schitzophrenia etc is a disease that can only be managed with medication and therapies. and unfortunately most of these people dont even realize they are ill and have usually dont comply with their treatment. Britney really seems to fit the profile of a manic depressive. They have very bizarre behavior, have a grandiose view of themselves, can have feelings of paranoia and to top it off, because she is so saught after and constantly hounded and followed this can only make her illness 100 times worse!! If this actually is her problem, it is no fault of her own, these people have no control over what they do when they are not on medication. they cannot control their impulses, spend money like crazy, do drugs, engage in dangerous situations, go without sleep for days and days, dress promiscously…and the list goes on. i just hope that she gets the help she needs, and i hope that her poor kids get the care and love they deserve.

    Did anyone ever think to check her hormones. A lot of women do not come back to normal hormone level after having children. It plays havoc with their behaviour. Has anyone ever thought this could be her problem; for her odd behaviour. She just acted like a mother bear to protect her children a few weeks ago and got upset. Afterall at the bottom of it all we all do have animal instincts.

  45. Anonymous • February 1, 2008 @ 9:25 AM

    I understand that she needs help and I am worried about her. But what I don’t understand is why is she still in the top lines on daily news almost every day… There are more important things that media should pay more attention to… Also when she was taken to hospital many paramedics/policemans accompanied her, it seems like almost a crew of 50 people, is it really necessary to keep that many people busy for that operation which are all paid with valuable tax dollars? A couple of people can take her to hospital right? Anyways I hope she gets on her feet soon, she is going through tough times… I wish all the best for her.

  46. Shawn • February 1, 2008 @ 9:28 AM

    Exactly, Money can save alot of lives but also be a huge part of the problem. And having such money at a young age has had effects on her and everyone around her. It really makes you wonder. Most of us are middle class, have a decent job, a car or two, few kids possibly a god or cat a place to live, yet some of us complain still. Look at what you have and look at the alternative? It does not give us the right to poke fun at other people regardless of status. What makes us a good human being is showing compassion to others even if you think they don’t deserve it, that is what being human and compassionate is all about. I hope everyone can just think about it for a second. Everything you have in this life is meaningless, cars, houses, money, fame. Family, now that is forever meaningful.

    Britney is suffering from a mental illness. Until you have a family member suffering and realize how tumultous such an illness can effect every aspect of your life and those who care about you; then you shouldn’t judge. She needs help, it is clear. The fact that she is a star makes gettting help even worse. I dont believe she wants all the attention she is receiving. I believe it’s only enabling her mental illness to thrive. Everyone should be praying that she gets better, for the sake of her children and all her young fans.

    Sandra how do you really know she’s suffering from mental illness? and besides who cares.
    Do you think Britney would give a crap about me or you if we had issues, not so much.
    As I see it She left the media eye when she went off to have kids. She lost fame and respect for her actions surrounding it all and decided to come back expecting the public to love her all over again. Who wants to love and admire a washed up has bin who has never been a role model, except for maybe when she was on the Mickey Mouse club even thats questionable. She has done nothing but wear slutty clothes while singing.
    She probably is having all these breakdowns because she realizes the jig is up, she sucks and everyone else knows it!

    i think that brit should just go die in a hole now…i don’t get why anyone would still defend her. i think that the paramedics should have put her away long ago and that we should seriously keep her away, she is dangerous to everyone and she may even harm the kids, and talk about trailer trash, her sister at 16 got pregnant, jebus christ guys, just keep a look for the whole family, make sure that no one else gets knocked up again but trashbags who will eventually divorce or leave them

Is she really so evil that we cannot even feel something for her? What if you were in that senario. We really do not know what exactly is going on. Besides, who are we to judge others. Are we so perfect?

  59. Intrigued • February 1, 2008 @ 10:56 AM

    The long an short of it is, whatever Britney once was is gone. Britney has clearly lost many things in her life, including a sense of reality and values.
    She is unfit to do anything as far as I’m concerned until she resovles her problems, and that is best done by a combination of help and personal want.
    As far as blame or pity is concerned… we really aren’t involved enough in her life to really know are we? So quit making assumptions people.
    Let it go, and hopefully so will the media.

    I feel sorry for all the people out there who voiced there strongly negative opinions regarding this unfortunate young lady–yes she has money and yes she should be happy because she should have everything in the world going for her — but the fact is — she couldn’t handle it all – the fame, the fortune, the pressures, and last but not least raising two children while suffering from a mental illness. She needs her family, friends, and anyone else who cares enough about her to support her at this delicate time and to those of you who don’t give a ??? ???ss — wait until it happens to you or one of your loved ones one day and see just how it feels to be in her shoes.

    I can only imagine what it would feel like to have my babies taken away from me. As a Mother, you would feel like you have nothing left to live for. My heart goes out to her. I fear that something terrible is going to happen to Britney very soon and then the babies will have no Mommy for the rest of their lifes and that is so sad!

    I believe this K-Fed guy really helped Brittany to her state of mind. Ok here is the equation. CHIDHOOD TALENT (come on now we all liked at least one of her songs)+ GOOD LOOKS / LUCK = FAME. Now her FAME was HUGE…and her fame made others rich as well…right MR. Photographers following her around all the time. Ok only the lucky/incentive made money by leeching off this “Star’s Light.
    Its obvious Brittany had enough of the attention from the Star Suckers and needed some space. She needed time to deal with her child custody matters. Hey Mr. Photographer, if a swarm of insects buzzed around your face everywhere you went, wouldnt you be upset? Or would except the fact these flys are only trying to “make a living” off the matter they need the most. (Disclaimer) Not all paparazzi are crap Ok I’m off topic back to the Equation of K-Fed. Where were you Mr. Manager to protect Brittany from that guy?

    CHIDHOOD TALENT + GOOD LOOKS / LUCK = FAME (K-FED) (can any body see this guy was a plus for Brittany?) = STAR IN DISSTRESS. Really I believe this Kevin guy has a HUGE involvement in what we read about this Star today. If this once brilliant star loses all of her shine? Those petty paparazzi will most likely continue swarming another Star, until the Star ethers shines brighter, or fades away.

    Some day those beautiful boys will grow up and some one will have to tell them, their Daddy made Mommy what she is today. I hope Brittany gets her life back, but she truly needs her space with only the people whom truly wants to listen to her. Only than this Stars light can continue to shine.

    I think it is time the world started to pray for Brittany Spears and her family and friends.It is Gods will that this is happening and prayer will show the world’s support of people in this situation.
    Many in this world have this type of disorder. Science is working desperately to find a cure, it is open to all. Maybe God is trying to show the world how to accept this and show compassion and love. Open your eyes and be supportive. For those of you who think this is other than that, WE WILL PRAY FOR YOU ALSO.
    Get with it world. God is watching you.

  69. Gina Darago • February 1, 2008 @ 1:42 PM

    What many of the commenters of this board don’t seem to understand is that she’s made mistakes, and do you honestly think that you can judge her… being person yourself who has also made mistakes. Furthermore, is it really necessary to kick somebody whose down, its like the paparazzi they see she’s having trouble, and what do they do they pester her endlessly, is this going to help her condition? I DON’T THINK SO!

  72. Arnold • February 1, 2008 @ 2:48 PM

    Sitting on the floor drinking Chocolate milk. OUT OF CONTROL, SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN TASERED FOR THE PARAMEDICS SAFETY!!!!!

    LMFAO!!!!! ^^^Arnold, you are so friggin funny!

  74. valerie • February 1, 2008 @ 3:17 PM

    To walk a mile in Britts shoes seems exhausting at the best of times.

  75. cathy (from montreal,canada) • February 1, 2008 @ 4:28 PM

    Britney is a very sick girl,and the father of her kids is the one that made her sick, and I do not think that he should have the kids,because he does not love them,he loves the money that he will be getting for Britney, the courts should place these kids in a family that will love them (not in her family )GOOD LUCK BRITNEY.

  76. Reynold • February 1, 2008 @ 6:48 PM

    Wanda, don’t be so terrible. Give her a change.

  77. Velvet • February 1, 2008 @ 6:56 PM

    What society fails to recognize is that it is far easier to play the victim than it is to accept responsibility for one’s life. Every choice that Britney has made is what got her to where she is today. No one is to blame but her. That’s right, not Justin, Kevin F., her mother, paparazi, etc. Yes, they probably contributed but at the end of the day, she has to step up and own who she has become today.

    With the very sad and tragic death of Heath Ledger that apparently nobody saw coming, I’m still waiting for two headlines this year:
    1. “Britney Spears…found dead at 26”.
    2. “Amy Winehouse…heroine overdose, found dead”.

    I wish them no harm but what has been happening with them being constantly in the news in 2007 and 2008 appears to be shaping up to be just the same, it will eventually turn into another Anna Nicole Smith nightmare unless a miracle takes place.

    Narcicism and ego play a big role in the lives of celebrity. Too many people cater to their every wish because of either their looks, their fame or their money. If you are not grounded in your spirit and/or soul, then anyone can become vulnerable to fighting their inner demons.

    My hope is that Britney and Amy will get help and take the help quickly and willingly. If not, it’s just a matter of time before we hear of their tragic deaths on CNN, TMZ or ET.

    Someone can only heal themselves if first they admit to having a problem. So being truthful is the only stepping stone to true healing.

    Peace out. Live, love and laugh often.

  81. pat galas • February 2, 2008 @ 3:15 AM

    why don’t all you leave her alone. when is this country going to realize that mental illness is as serious as cancer. we would certainly treat her differently if she had cancer. a message to britney” we will pray for your speady recovery”

  82. Anonymous • February 2, 2008 @ 9:45 AM

    That is just sick.

  83. Wendy • February 2, 2008 @ 10:02 AM

    Yes Britney has been sick for a while and the media does not help watching her every move. I have read so many stories that blame her ex-husband Kevin. The media from the start has had it in for him and always writing stories about how he’s no good for her. She fell in love with him and they seemed to be happy for a while but the media always were finding something to blame him for. With the constant media in both of their lives putting the extra added tension on the marriage. That alone can break up a marriage. I can remember before she even had the 1st baby all you heard about was them getting a divorce.Now that they have and she has become sick we still want to blame Kevin. It’s not all his fault either. As for Britney she should leave the country to get help that is so despartley needed and just maybe the media won’t follow her so she can get her life back together and get her kids back. As much as everyone hates Kevin we really have to thank him for taking care of his own children until Britney gets better. I wish Britney the best of luck getting better and getting her children back.

  84. Arnold • February 2, 2008 @ 12:16 PM

    Dear Valerie. on February 1,
    Just to let you know I have walked a mile in Britts shoes.

    Unfortunately it was the time when she needed them to use the restroom at the gas station. Doh!

  85. David Witchard • February 2, 2008 @ 1:44 PM

    Britney, Stop smoking the crack and you will have no trouble sleeping. Just put down the pipe and say no.

  86. Poppa John • February 2, 2008 @ 9:00 PM

    HOW DARE YOU INTERRUPT MY HOT CHOCOLATE??? (ala Mr.Burns’s Lime Ricky episode)
    That is the question that begs to be answered…..

  87. theoriginalkaren • February 3, 2008 @ 2:33 AM

    So Michael Jackson is performing at the Super Bowl? Let’s hope there are no “wardrobe malfunctions…”

  88. Karen • February 3, 2008 @ 9:19 AM

    Thanks for the support, Anonymous. I’m really coming to despise that poster.

  89. tributegirl • February 3, 2008 @ 9:40 AM

    I agree Karen. I think Tribute should do something about it, maybe block the idiot or something. Maybe they should have a login thing where you can register your tribute name and no one else can use it. It is really annoying, but at least we all know your style, and that’s one thing that idiot CAN’T copy.

  90. Jane • February 3, 2008 @ 3:43 PM

    I feel sorry for someone so confused and mentally disturbed. I hope and pray that she regains her common sense. What a tragic story.

  91. no one • February 3, 2008 @ 5:42 PM

    maybe brintey & michael jackson should get together they are both nuts milllions does dum things for them

  92. Anonymous • February 4, 2008 @ 12:41 PM

    Ok, I know who is doing it Karen. And I’m quite surprised, it is one of our “regulars”, a male. Can you guess? Believe it or not, the “wanna-be” is none other than our very own Arnold. No joke.

  93. Nancy • February 4, 2008 @ 1:11 PM

    I’m not saying it is or isn’t, but what makes you say it is Arnold?

  94. Anonymous • February 4, 2008 @ 1:16 PM

    Investigative work. Thanks Tribute Techies!

  95. Nancy • February 4, 2008 @ 2:08 PM

    Prove it! I think it is you!! Ooops, sorry….this ‘double’ is not RUDE enough to be YOU!!!

    Investigative work….Ha ha ha….what a freakin’ joke!! What do you think Arnie??

  96. Arnold • February 4, 2008 @ 5:12 PM

    Although I think the double agent stuff is kind of mysterious and sexy It’s just not my thing.

    I don’t have the time or the intellect to keep track of all the sub personalities.

    Thanks for the support Nancy!

  97. xray • February 5, 2008 @ 12:34 AM

    to “ann” … post partum depression is a construct created by pfizer to market zoloft … just ask tom cruise … how could he every be wrong about anything?

  98. Anonymous • February 5, 2008 @ 1:36 AM

    Sure Arnold, remember when you were posting things too quickly? I checked the times, there were maybe 2 things in your name, and a few things in other peoples names during that time frame, and those other people all happened to be people who have been having trouble with YOU. I’ve checked this before, and it is definitely you. And no, it’s not mysterious or sexy, it’s stupid, so why don’t you just stop it?

  99. Karen • February 5, 2008 @ 1:37 AM

    A Britney-McCain ticket could be just the thing to save the White House for the Republicans.

  100. tributegirl • February 5, 2008 @ 2:23 PM

    Ok, this is weird. I thought we were here to talk about Britney. Anyway, whatever, if anonymous is right, then I’d be quite disappointed in Arnold, but I don’t think it is. He doesn’t seem the type. But then again, you never know. So if it is you Arnold, could you please stop? It is nice to know who you are arguing or agreeing with. And if it’s not you, good, but whoever it is, come on, knock it off and grow up. Ok now, back to Britney. Is she still in the padded room or has she gone home to her mother?

  101. Anonymous • February 10, 2008 @ 3:23 PM

    I think that Brit would probably get back to normal if the paparazzi would just leave her alone! If they didn’t follow her around everywhere and gave her a little privacy, maybe she wouldn’t be so nuts! Lay off the poor girl!
