You know that you’ve made a name for yourself as a celebrity, when your life and habits are discussed in press releases by “experts” who don’t know you. That is what has happened to our beloved Britney Spears.
Upper East Side internist Holly Phillips (and Ford model) lectured Britney in the release, which offered the doctor for interviews. “Spotting midterm is grounds for a high-risk pregnancy, Britney may need to be put on ‘pelvic rest,’ which may include full-time bed rest and no sex.” “Spears needs to slow down on the heavy fast food, and remove herself from the potential damage of second-hand smoke from her husband. Britney’s pregnancy can be adversely affected by smoking and second-hand smoke. She should focus on ultimate health and relaxation.”
Good free advice perhaps, but Spears’ PR rep sounded decidedly ungrateful. “No one asked for her opinion,” Leslie Sloane Zelnik told me, adding that the 23-year-old Spears is living and eating healthily – and that her televised boast, “I had sex three times today,” probably was filmed before her pregnancy. “This doctor should mind her own business, shut her trap and get a life,” Sloane Zelnik advised.
Does Ms. Phillips want to become a doctor, or does she want to become an on air commentator?
