How I Met Britney’s British Side by phattyjboy

“How I Met Your Mother” marketing shot

By now everyone knows that Britney Spears is going to do a stint on “How I Met Your Mother.” She will supposedly play an secretary or assistant to someone that Ted’s character on the show is playing. Now we find out that she was supposed to play a secretary to a dermatologist who was supposed to be played by Alicia Silverstone. Ms. Silverstone, not relevant since the 90’s, has backed out because she does not want to be freaked out exposed to crazies overshadowed by Ms. Spears. So now Sarah Chalke of “Scrubs” fame has stepped in for one episode to play the ill-fated dermatologist.

First of all, Sarah Chalke confuses me. She came out waaaay before Katherine Heigl on “Grey’s Anatomy”, but somehow has played a Mad TV-esque spoof on Katherine in Scrubs. And she’s also very hot and bangable in some episodes, but then another day I don’t even want to look at her. Its like that okay-looking chick you banged last weekend and can’t stop having sex with even though she annoys you because no one else wants to touch you right now. You have her come over, slap your shit around, and then can’t wait for her to leave. But then when she doesn’t return your calls, you get all attached and shit.

What, you don’t do that? Whatever.

Neil Patrick Harris

I think this is a brilliant PR move by “How I Met Your Mother”. Britney will be completely atrocious, but everyone will tune in to see the disaster. Kind of like her MTV Awards appearance or the reason a gaper’s block forms on the road – you cannot look away even though you want to puke. In case you wanted to know what Neil Patrick Harris had to say (and it IS kind of funny), you can visit this site for an interview with Entertainment Tonight. He wonders what side of Britney we’ll see on the show and if she has a master plan and is just fooling us. I think Britney thinks that her British accent is just hotter than her southern one. Southern is waaaaaaay better.
