Britney's UPN Reality Show Faces the Axe (Singer in Counselling Sessions Over News)
Web India .com ^ | May 26, 2005 12:40:13PM

Posted on 05/26/2005 9:00:59 AM PDT by gopwinsin04

Britney Spears has been told that her new UPN network reality TV show faces the axe unless it attracts more viewers.

The pop diva is said to be so distraught by the news that she is now undergoing counselling sessions to 'come to terms' with her waning popularity reports the London Daily Star.

'The worst thing is that the viewing figures are so low, she's upset that her fans don't seem to care any more. It's painful for her that her fans have stopped listening to what she has to say,' a source was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, the 'Toxic' singer, age 23, has been rapped by her mother for revealing a series of intimate sex secrets on her show.

Her mother, Lynne Spears, called her daughter immediately after the show aired to protest the personal relevations as they set a bad example to Britney's teenage sister, Jamie Lynne.

Ya know,I've defended Britney on here for a while. But I have to say, she has just gone around the bend.

Being a has-been at 23, can't be easy. That's why I'm glad I'm a never-was! ;)

I was going to say the same thing. I was pretty clueless on that one. Then again I usually don't bother with UPN. Actually I don't bother with TV much any more.

"she's upset that her fans don't seem to care any more"

She debases herself to appeal to the lowest common denominator of society, then complains because they're shallow and fickle.

Ahhhh....you know, I wish I had her problems, well, some of them anyway.

If she hadnt married that skeeze...and, let's say, married a banker, lawyer, doctor, military guy. And then said, I am going to go back to college (because she married someone that actually told her she could better herself...taken a classier path, etc.) Had a reality show on that, things would have been a lot different. Still...she lived life like a star...few get that opportunity.

The day I stop getting fan mail for my inspired, sardonic and oh-so-witty posts on FR is the day that I decide that life is no longer worth living.

So keep those cards and letters coming, folks. It's the ONLY thing keeping me alive!

I bet that Britney appears nude in playboy or Hustler within the next few years. I had thought that she would be there by the time she's 25 and I will stick to that opinion.

that she is a skank was pretty much a given....

I was surfing the other evening and stumbled across this horrendous show. I must admit it was like driving by a car wreck and I sat and watched approximately 5 excruciating minutes of this garbage. I watched this white trash ho walk around asking all of her cronies..."What's yer favorite sex position?" As if the topic wasn't childish enough, she couldn't even ask it properly by saying SEXUAL position.

After many of her associates looked at her in disbelief and chose NOT to answer this asonine question in front of the handful of national viewers, the camera was turned on the trailer princess where she said... "Oh my gawd... mom don't watch theeis, (she probably wasn't from the ratings) then decided to not answer that question herself. 5 valuable minutes of my life wasted on this. Good riddance!

I always thought Britney was pretty and had a nice figure. She did go down faster than I thought, and I thought she would go down fast.

She is almost a model of that old image about fame corrupting one's morals. She was probably a nice girl at one time, but hanging around that crowd turned her into a slut then finally a skank as others have said.

I suggest that she should put on 40 pounds and grow a beard. It helped Algore to deal with his rejection.

Is that someone asking for her autograph as she enters the bathroom! Yuck!!!! I suppose that IS her fan base - the guy probably went and checked out the toilet after she left to see what he could sell on E-bay!

I feel a bit bad for her, in that this is a terrific example of what the Dixie Chicks experienced, as well as Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, et al...

These are people who have a job. That job is one that has a bunch of psychophants running around for one reason or another, and all these people do is tell the "celebrity" how wonderful they are, or how important they are. Eventually, these people begin to believe it. That's when bad things happen. I really liked the Dixie Chicks, and still listen to their music occasionally. But the only reason that I noticed them was their music (well, OK, the two sisters are cute too), and if I wanted political opinions, I'd go to FR or CSPAN. As soon as they started talking about politics, I just tuned them out. For some reason, they started believing that their opinions mattered more than their music, and while their opinions DO matter, they really only matter to them, and the people to whom they're close.

Ms Spears seems to have thought that since her life seems so amazing to her, it would to everyone else too. Especially given the "success" of that show by Paris and Nichole. What I don't think that she counted on was that (I believe) most of the people watching "The Simple Life" were watching it for the same reason people watch auto and train accidents. They just can't believe what they're seeing. And most people have a level of tolerance that's reached pretty quickly in these cases. How many times can you watch Paris Hilton be a skank? Unfortunately, however interesting her life seems to her, nobody else really gives a rat's rear end. And it seems that nobody ever really told her that while she may be talented and quite a special entertainer, that's how she should have left the relationship with her audience. And it seems that she's crushed by it.

It must be tough to have a show worse than Anna Nichole Smith's. Brit's appeal was her sport-f*** potential. Since she put her complete white-trash stupidity on display, got knocked up and married some redneck trailer trash, her sex appeal is greatly reduced.
