Britney Spears Had No Handlers For ‘Dateline’ Interview

June 19th, 2006 // 27 Comments

Well, that does explain a whole lot. The hair, the clothes, the don’t know when to stop talking part. Neither of her publicists were present, and Britney did her own hair and makeup, which was a very regrettable decision.

Spears, when asked about Kevin Federline being with a pregnant Shar Jackson when they first met, shot back, “Julia Roberts’ husband had a pregnant wife when he hooked up with Julia, but no one ever talked about that!” Spears wore flip-flops, a see-through tank and micro-mini jeans.

She does have a point there.

According to Popwatch, Entertainment Weekly’s blog, the interview could have been much better. Matt Lauer never followed up on Shar Jackson. Britney is in the same position right now that Shar was when Kevin left Shar Jackson for Britney. Popwatch makes some great points in hindsight.

Why Britney Needs Handlers [Page Six]

    She dont care so much about fashion but she is a beautiful girl, she is so funny and has a big heart. I’m glad she is happy with her husband and her cute baby. Do you know that she donated all the money from Sean first photo to the hurricane victims…you people need to stop bashing her like this because she deserve our respect or maybe you dont know the meaning of this word

  2. Candy

    Jamie Lynn?

  3. anonymous

    There’s got to be a joke about Express in there someplace.

  4. Teacher Teacher

    Roxi, did you by chance go to the same school as Britney? Please read your comment before you hit “post”…..or is the horrible grammar due to the fact that you’re “country?”

    Actually, as Matt explained in the show, Julia Roberts’ husband had no children when he left his wife for Julia. If I recall correctly, the “scandal” with that situation was that he had married his first wife only a short time before he left her for Julia.

  6. Jewels

    Vera – the ex-wife of Julia Roberts husband WAS NOT PREGNANT when he left her. Big differance, HUGE!

  7. roxi

    I’m from Romania and I know my english is not that good, but I’m practicing…OK I will leave this site because I see you all hate Britney so Bye-Bye

  8. Gigi

    Ummm… maybe I’m an ass for pointing this out, but Danny Moder (Julia Roberts’ husband) was married, but his now ex-wife was NOT pregnant. And besides, Julia DID get a lot of flack for that (not as much as Britney for K-fed leaving Shar, but still got flack nonetheless.)

    Call me crazy, but I think it’s a heck of a lot worse to leave a woman while she’s several months pregnant with your baby. Married or not, that’s a REALLY bad time to have second thoughts about your relationship. But, the bottom line is that there is WAY more wrong with K-fed than him leaving Shar while she was pregnant. That’s just one thing in a laundry list of problems.

    I am proud to say that I don’t need a handler!

    Take that!

  10. doofus

    roxi, your english skills aside (my romanian is non-existent…), why should we “respect” her?

    is it her timeless, classic music? is it her bad extensions? her gum smacking? her inability to dress like a young mother and not a hoochie? her affinity for putting her son’s life in danger? her act of taking up with another (pregnant) woman’s man? her appearing to be a total doormat for her user, cheating husband?

    or is it tendency to blame everyone BUT herself for the negatives in her life?

    Seriously, WHY does she deserve our respect?

    (watch out, anon…you’ll soon have the Limited Brand, Inc police after you…)

    I just hope Shar Jackson not only got a really great laugh out of that interview, but has decided to truly moved on with her life.

    I believe she has shown class in not participated in countless interviews in which she took the opportunity to bash Britney.

    She will, undoubtedly, have the last laugh.

  12. Green Eyed Angell

    Last laugh? She’s probably at home with her NO-dent-in-the head kids thanking her lucky stars!!

    PS. No handlers for me either!! LOL

  13. noodles

    well that explains a lot. chewing gum during the interview, the eyelashes falling off, the smeared eyeliner, the crazy outfit…

    her inner trailer park has been unleashed!

  14. urbancowgrl

    Vera Moder was recently quoted saying something like -I don’t think about Julia–my baby is the most important thing right now.

    When I read that I thought, good for her she noved on, had a baby. But is that baby Danny’s baby????

  15. Grphdesi23

    Britney “Kevin has a big heart.”

    For Kevin,

    Big heart=Big d*ck

    For Britney

    Big heart=Big breasts

  16. urbancowgrl

    Nope, not Danny’s. I just did a search on Vera and one site says that she hooked up with an old flame and is happier than ever. Good for her!

  17. urbancowgrl

    Nope, not Danny’s. I just did a search on Vera and one site says that she hooked up with an old flame and is happier than ever. Good for her!

  18. Sarah

    Teacher, Teacher you gave me the laugh of the day. Amen!

    As for Britney commenting about Julia, was her husband really a father-to-be at the time? I don’t think he had children. Can’t imagine Julia liked being brought into that interview. Hope we see media rag fireworks as a result.

  19. Drink the Kool-Aid

    “Julia Roberts stole her man from his pregnant wife so I can too?” Please. Regardless of what Julia Roberts did or did not do, and it was classless and immature of her to even bring it up.

  20. Cheesy

    First, Vera Moder wasn’t pregnant when her husband ran off with Julia Big-Teeth.

    Second, Julia took monster heat for running off with someone’s husband. And even if she didn’t get heat, it wouldn’t make it right. Just like, um, say riding on your daddy’s lap and driving the pickup when you’re 8 doesn’t make it right for you to drive with an 8 month old.

    Third, Brit Brit shouldn’t be out without a professional make-up person spackling on her warpaint. She looked like a hoochie mama with clown make-up.

    And lastly, I hope she enjoyed her career. Cuz it’s over.

  21. Jenny

    “Spackling on the war paint”. Cheesy, that was precious (not to mention true)!!

  22. amy

    i love britney…she deserves respect just like anyother human being!

  23. k

    The fake eyelashes falling off were killing me.

    And who says she deserves our respect? Respect is earned, like trust, it’s not a right.

    Britney’s behavior of late says to me that she isn’t respecting herself at the moment. Someone needs to take her aside, give her a hug, and then set her straight.

    She was foolish to think she could go on national TV and not expect people to pick on her. She should have thought about what has happened to Tom Cruise as a result of getting rid of his “handlers”.

  24. Suck

    Even Julia did that or not i think it is not right to compare yourself to others what happened to her? and pls. that chewing gum its so annoying is she nervous or what?

  25. ali

    It was pretty annoying that Britney had to keep on comparing herself to others in the interview…she sounded like a little girl..”well she did this, and that was ok”.

    The whole Shar/Kevin/Britney thing was messed up but seriously Shar should be thanking Britney for at least making her famous.

  26. toughcookie

    Just saw Scarborough Country on MSNBC and some film footage of Britney unlocking the door of her convertible while the top WAS DOWN!! How dumb can she be?!! I’m from Louisiana, have lived here all my life, and I just want people to know, that not all of us from Louisiana are that DUMB!!! The girl needs serious help, maybe she should do a show with Dr. Phill.

  27. egirl

    Just the fact that all of you people are sitting around spending your time discussing every detail of the girl’s life proves that she is a true star, and Im glad that its not just people with connections or plastic rich girls like Paris that can make it. It took some serious work to get where she is today, and if you question her innate talent check out the “Oops I Did It Again” video. She is a true performer and she has more money than all of you critics bank accounts put together and multiplied by 100. Why are you all sitting around and discussing her instead of something that really matters?
