Britney Loses Her Mind, Kids

Well, this is just plain depressing. US Weekly is reporting that Britney Spears has lost custody of her children, at least temporarily:
A judge has decided that Kevin Federline will get custody of sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jaden James, 1, starting this Wednesday. At a hearing in the Federline v. Spears custody case in Los Angeles Monday, the court ordered that Federline take care of the children he shares with ex-wife Britney Spears until further order of the court.

Despite losing custody of her sons for the time being, the court specified that Spears must still adhere to the orders from a September 28th hearing, in which she was labeled a "habitual" user of controlled substances. Those orders include: attending counseling, meeting with a parenting coach and submitting to twice-weekly random drug tests.

OK, call me crazy, but I am a teensy bit surprised that this has happened. HEAR ME OUT, PEOPLE! STOP LAUGHING!

For reals, ya'll! The state is usually quite loathe to remove children from their mother's home, even in pretty extreme abuse cases, simply because most experts believe that children should be with their mom, period. I'm not saying that is always the right way to go, but I find it hard to believe that Britney's tooth-whitening, nude cavorting, and drunken/druggy trashy sad behavior is severe enough that they had to remove the kids from her care...unless, of course, there is a LOT o' crap going on in that house that our prying eyes are not privy to....Or is this a witch hunt of some kind? WHAT IS GOING ON?

Developing, obvs!

I don't know what is going on with her, but the sight of those little boys holding hands and looking sort of frightened in the backseat of her car (while she was being chased by paparazzi) would be enough for me to take those kids away from her. They are going to need SO much therapy.

I'm not saying they shouldn't have been taken away from her, I'm just sayin' that it's pretty unusual...and yes, they should maybe just start therapy now.

Yeah, I don't get it either, unless she's really doing some fucked up stuff that we don't know about. I mean, she's a crappy mom, but there's crappy moms all over the place. The big "no no" that everybody keeps talking about is that she was naked in front of her kids. Who isn't naked in front of their kids?
