Dr. Phil Cancels Britney-Themed Show

Dr. PhilFeigning concern for those involved, has canceled the show he was planning to dedicate to Britney Spears’ troubles.  Maybe it was because he actually started listening to his audience instead of preaching to them?

Here is a copy of the statement released through his own website:

“As was widely reported this weekend, at the request of concerned family members, I visited Britney Spears in the hospital. The details of that visit will, of course, remain private.

We had planned to tape a Dr. Phil Now show today, focusing not on the tabloid side of Britney’s latest problems, but instead on the very serious issues surrounding this case. Clearly, it is not just Britney’s family struggling to find a way to protect adult children who cannot be ordered or compelled to seek help.

Because the Spears situation is too intense at this time, and out of consideration to the family, I have made the decision not to move forward with the taping at this particular time.

Britney and her family are in our prayers, and we ask that they be in yours.”

Dr. Phil McGraw

You gotta wonder what momma mentor had to say about all this.  I’m pretty sure even she wouldn’t have stooped this low.

Dr. Phil, Britney Spears

UPDATE:  Dr. Phil has now decided against doing a show based on Britney.  You can read his statement here.

Despite being placed on what was believed to be a 72-hour hold, was quietly discharged from Cedars-Sinai this morning.  Although it is widely believed the troubled star should be forced to seek some type of help, the hospital had no choice but to release her.  They couldn’t keep Spears against her will unless they thought she might physically harm herself.  (She was not technically considered ‘suicidal’ when she was admitted to begin with.)

But fans concerned for her well-being shouldn’t worry— has taken it upon himself to make sure Britney knows people care.  The talk show host had a private conversation with the Spears this morning as she was being discharged from the hospital.  Here is the exclusive statement he made to :

“My meeting with Britney and some of her family members this morning in her room at Cedars leaves me convinced more than ever that she is in dire need of both medical and psychological intervention. She was released moments before my arrival and was packing when I entered the room. We visited for about an hour before I walked with her to her car. I am very concerned for her.”

More Details on Britney Spears’ Meltdown

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Gossip, News, Rumors,

Britney SpearsIt all begins now.  The never-ending details surrounding Britney Spears’ hospitalization last night.

First off, it turns out K-Fed’s bodyguards weren’t the ones responsible for reporting to the authorities.  It was Brit’s own court-appointed child monitor.  Preston was being prepped to return to dad’s house when his mother decided to lock herself up in the bedroom with Jayden.  Fearing the young child would be forced to choose between mom’s only two pairs of boots, the monitor called the cops for help.  (Of course, I kid.  Well, maybe.)

While Sean and Jayden are now seeking normalcy in their father’s home, Spears is in the middle of a mandatory 72-hour mental evaluation at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles.  Meanwhile, attorneys for both Britney and have been meeting at the courthouse to discuss the recent events.  (The matter really shouldn’t get any more attention than Brit gave to her deposition yesterday.  Why should it take more than 15 minutes to take the kids away from her?)

As sad as yesterday’s events were, this incident, ironically, may be the best thing to happen to the troubled pop star.  (I’m assuming this is rock bottom, right?) We can only hope that she is finally getting the rest - and help - she needs.

Britney Spears to Receive Mental Evaluation

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Gossip, News,

Britney SpearsIt only took three days into the New Year for to take back the spotlight from pregnant Jamie Lynn.

Earlier Thursday, the elder Spears finally decided to show up for a scheduled deposition with lawyers.  (Keep in mind, she had somehow managed to skip out on a million of these appointments prior to today.)  After arriving approximately 90 minutes late, she left 15 minutes later.  It seems she didn’t like how she was being treated. 

Now fast forward a few hours….

As of 11:45pm PT, there is a large police and medic presence outside the Spears home in Beverly Hills.  Apparently the authorities were called to the house around 8pm when Britney failed to comply with her parental visitation guidelines.  (Kevin Federline’s bodyguards tried to pick up her two boys - Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1 - as scheduled with no luck.)

After several hours of trying to resolve the matter “peacefully”, and now are reporting that Britney has been taken away on a gurney for a mental evaluation.  This decision came after the police reportedly found her under the influence of some unknown substance. 

Meanwhile, both boys are apparently safe and back with their father.

Be expecting more to come..
