Britney / Anna Nicole: Rehab & A Shake

Britney Spears does a U-turn to rehab

The Spears family has pressed Britney's pause button: she checked into rehab again. She and her family are in my prayers. I hate seeing anybody go through the fire.

Like this columnist, I've wonder if postpartum depression is a factor. Check out the potential PPD red flags @ Julie's Health Club.

Steve Johnson @ Chicago Tribune has lots of Britney comments; some are so cold. Brit is only human. Makes me think of Princess Di.

If that's not disconcerting enough, footage has just surfaced of Anna Nicole Smith... out of it and wearing clown make up. Reeling like a zombie.

I saw the video last night. The only other image this bizarre is Samuel L. Jackson playing 'Gator' in "Jungle Fever."

Cult of personality? Or twisted virgin sacrifice? Why does Western culture push many of its cherished 'princesses' over the edge? Down the hot larnyx of some fire-spitting volcano.

Or into the arms of the beast?

I give up on this girl. She is in and out of rehab. She must really realize she needs help yet. I don't want to ear another news article about this confused soul. Leave her be until she figures herself out.
