We have got to hand it to Britney Spears. Just when we've figured she's done her worst, she constantly eclipses herself with something amazing, like a white-trash phoenix from the ashes of celebrity disaster. Now, we've got Brit-Gate '08, the biggest and best incident yet. Today, Spears is hospitalized after police had to come to her home to retrieve her children, who were supposed to be with their father, after the reportedly intoxicated Britney refused to give them up.
Perhaps more shocking than the resolution to this situation is the pictures of the event, showing Britney being pulled from her home on a stretcher, alternately crying hysterically and smiling maniacally. She is now reportedly under suicide watch at Cedars Sinai hospital in Beverly Hills.
Wow. WOW! What a start to 2008.
