Just yesterday I was writing about how thrilled I was that Britney Spears could become her own woman at the end of the year by getting out from under her father’s conservatorship. And if anyone has doubts that Brit is thinking clearly about what’s good for her and her sons, this newest move will lay all fears to rest. Apparently, Britney has already made a major decision for her sons and it’s one that she’s willing to go to court over.
The issue is that Brit’s ex-husband, Kevin Federline, wants to do a reality show. Of course he does. Doesn’t everybody? Especially when you’re a nobody who married and divorced a somebody and all your money is running out? The problem, besides the fact that Federline could make network TV, is that he wants to include their boys, Sean Preston and Jayden James, in the television show. Oh, that sounds like a good idea, doesn’t it? Did K-Fed ever stop to consider that Britney is a child star herself and that she might know a few things about how awful it is? Apparently, he didn’t. But, Britney sure as heck did and now, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to stop it from happening. From Contact Music,
“BRITNEY SPEARS is set for legal action against her ex-husband KEVIN FEDERLINE – to stop their children appearing on his new TV show.
Federline hopes to land a deal to document his day-to-day life with his two sons and his new girlfriend, Victoria Prince, for a new reality series.
But his pop star ex is refusing to give permission for Sean Preston, three, and two-year-old Jayden James to appear on the programme – and is considering launching a legal battle to limit filming.
Spears and Federline famously allowed TV cameras into their lives in 2005 for the MTV series Britney & Kevin: Chaotic.”
I think even Britney haters realize that the only reason that Kevin has those children is because Britney took a ride on the crazy-train for a little while. It’s not because he’s some stellar parent and an upstanding role model. Wanting to put your children, who aren’t even 5 yet by the way, on television is just a bad, bad idea. Wanting to do it so that you can make money off of it though, is just such terrible parenting. I’m pretty sure that the only reason K-Fed wants to do a TV show at all is because he’s probably getting close to broke. And because no one really cares about Kevin Federline, he’s willing to use Britney’s children, because people might care about them just a little bit more.
I’m glad that Britney’s stopping it. And I think that it proves that she really does care about what’s best for her kids and has her head on straight enough that she can see to it that they get it.
