I was bored out of my mind the other night by the relentless invasion of the Britney Spears/Kevin Federline custody battle into just about every news blurb on every channel. I mean come on, enough is enough. Every report was slanted to focus on Kevin's brave fight to wrestle custody of the couple's two, innocent, helpless children from the clutches of their deranged mother.
Please. Sure Britney has been a little wild lately but if you step back and look at her honestly you see a former child star who evolved into a pop diva (Poptart is a term I always liked) and who now is on the downward side of her career. And it hurts. She is more than likely so used to being the center of attention that she is having trouble adjusting to her role as a "former" superstar. After all, once you are married and getting a little wide in the hip and droopy in the boobs from a couple of pregnancies the old schoolgirl uniform just doesn't seem to fit as well and your 13-year-old market dries right up. That sucks for everyone who has ever experienced it but hey, life goes on.
Kevin on the other hand is simply a poor guy from the wrong side of the tracks who likes to dance and was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time to score very big in the marriage lottery (Man Ho is a term I always liked). He hooked up with a very rich girl. Of course, she is probably so self-centered and such an attention whore that living with her was a huge bitch for him. So he did what any self-respecting gold-digger would do and dumped her whiny ass almost as soon as the ink was dry on the marriage certificate.
Okay, he took the time to do a little breeding first and that is a good thing for him, really. After all, it won't take him long to burn his way through that 12 million dollar divorce settlement. What then? Where does a guy with very few marketable skills other than Man Ho go to find a six or seven figure income? Nowhere, is the answer to that question. Unless of course you have two little meal tickets in the form of children that you can grab control of and use to extract an amazing monthly child support check.
