Understanding Britney’s Wacky Behavior


On The Early Show this morning, the executive director of the Wonderland Center (where La Lohan sometimes likes to chill) Dr. Howard Samuels offered up an explanation for Britney’s erratic checking in and out of rehab.

“Then they’re hit with intense feelings — intense emotions of shame, guilt, the things that they’ve done,” he said. “And they either deal with those feelings, or they run. And I think that that’s what’s happening in this case; is that she’s running.”

Basically, what the good doctor is saying is that Brit’s probably walking into the center, still intoxicated. But once she’s had some time to sober up, the whole thing is a little too real to deal with. And it’s these first hours that she hasn’t been able to weather just yet that are the most crucial.

“The most important issue is the first 72 hours,” he said. “That’s where it’s most important. Because it’s in that time frame where the person’s either going to stay and make a commitment and deal with their emotions and the shame and guilt that they’ve gone through, or they’re going to run.”

OK, I can accept that. It’s coming from a credible source and sounds logical. But I’ve yet to hear a good excuse for the way she’s been dressing for the past two and a half years.
