â€˜Hollywood Scandals: Britney Spears,â€™ TV review Reelz rewinds the frenzy about out-of-control singer's turmoil with romance and rehab by David Hinckley
"And then, hey, remember the time Britney Spears like almost killed herself? Best days ever! Thereâ€™s nothing like a famous person doing the Celebrity Meltdown, and then just when you thought sheâ€™d taken it to the limit, oops, she like did it again. So even though she wasnâ€™t exactly a â€œHollywood star,â€ unless you count the video of her bashing an SUV window with an umbrella, Reelz would have to be crazier than Charlie Sheen not to retell her story. It hardly seems like 10 years since she got married in Vegas and it lasted 55 hours and she checked in to rehab and it lasted 24 hours. But thatâ€™s how long itâ€™s been, and the point is that today thereâ€™s a whole generation of 10-year-olds who barely know all this history. It's like we owe it to them to keep it alive, dude. The folks at Reelz know that, too, so theyâ€™ve loaded this episode with expert commentators from all the authoritative celebrity websites to zero in on the most important moments. Like, who doesnâ€™t remember where they were the night Britney shaved off all her hair? That was the night, says the reporter from Radar Online, â€œwhen she went from being the biggest story in the world to being the only story in the world.â€ Okay, he adds that he meant the entertainment world, which is kind of weird. Like, was something else going on? What? The start of the recession? Bo-ring. No, this is the good stuff, like how Britney was making $40 million a year and then all of a sudden she went to a club and forgot her underwear. Someone said sheâ€™s still alive today, which is cool because it means she can like enjoy all these great memories along with the rest of us." Link to the article.
