Britney Spears Can’t Count, Angered Patients with Cake and Likes to Text Message

January 8th, 2008 // 7 Comments

I can’t imagine how Britney is able to keep up her energy to generate all the Britney news she’s creating, since I can barely keep up just reading it. Details are now emerging as to why exactly Britney locked herself in the bathroom in the first place. Unsurprisingly, TMZ is reporting that it’s all over an argument over custody of the kids, with Britney misunderstanding the scheduling. She mistakenly believed that her deposition took place during her scheduled time with the boys–which it didn’t–and she wanted to keep the boys two extra hours last Thursday evening and that’s when the shit hit the fan.

Then, there was Britney’s stay in the hospital, which just seems to get stranger by the minute. According to In Touch Weekly, Britney inadvertently incited some outbursts at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center during her stay. The mother of one of the patients tried to celebrate her daughter’s birthday at the hospital with a cake, but was told that outside food was not allowed, causing the mother to yell, “If Britney brought the cake you’d let her.” At that point, she kicked Britney’s door and Brit yelled back. Gee, people acting crazy in a mental ward? Go figure.

And finally, Britney’s newest paparazzi friend, the photographer who gave her a lift after she ran into trouble with a flat tire, is dishing about his experience with Brit. Reportedly, during the ride to her home, she text messaged the whole time and she even invited him inside her home, telling him, “don’t be lame,” when he asked to take her picture. But the most shocking of all is his account of her home, which appeared to be immaculate. Whoah. Now, I would not have expected THAT.

    Britney’s house is cleaner than mine.

    I’ve got some serious thinking to do.

    She has the $$ for housekeepers, and she hadn’t yet been home to make a new mess! That’s the only thing that makes sense to me.

    He also said that her two little dogs were in her house all alone. So — who is feeding them and who is taking care of them?

    In severe manic phases, most bipolar patients have the energy to do just about anything, including staying awake for days on end. But this mental state is nothing to wish for. According to clients I’ve spoken with, this “energy level” can be extremely physically uncomfortable. One client likened it to being on crack for 3 days and feeling like she was going to jump out of her skin. In fact, she said she tries to isolate herself when she’s in that phase, because she knows she is likely to get into trouble and make terribly regretful decisions.

    I find it so interesting that there are so many people on this blog that work in the mental health field-I did for 20 years-I got out a couple of years ago, time for a break from listening to and solving everyone’s problems! I got into the field after my brother was diagnosed a chronic schizophrenic and I didn’t have much respect for how his case was handled or how his treatment progressed.
    Makes me wonder what it is about this particular blog that seems to attract those in the fields of psychology/psychiatry and social work…maybe its J. Harvey…hehehe.

    Hi Zekers!
    I think it’s just a genuine interest in human behavior — strange, normal, or otherwise;). In my case, it’s also usually a desire to defend the underdog in some way. It’s hard to listen to people kick someone when you know they’re already down, and something more is going on.

    Sorry to hear about your brother ;( The mental health field definitely hasn’t come far enough when it comes to SPMI.

    Hey T-Bone!

    That makes sense…the underdog champion…yes, that fits!

    The whole Hollywood fishbowl does make for some great observation opportunities!
