Britney Spears "Great to Work with" on TV Set

There are reports that Britney's mother visited her in her trailer on the set of How I Met Your Mother, which has seen more publicity in the past three days than during the rest of its run combined. This is probably a large portion of the reason that star Josh Radnor is giving soundbites like this one:

"It pains me to report that on the first day of the shoot, Britney knew her lines better than I knew mine. She's been great to work with."

This may be true, because, as I understand it, Britney has a very small role on the show. She's probably only got a handful of lines anyway. And this is, like, the only thing she's had to do in many months. So, yeah, good for you, Brit.

Also, via Defamer, a report from a source on the Fox lot:

Saw That Chick Who Used To Be Married To K-Fed on the Fox lot today for her How I Met Your Mother guest spot.

Smoking like a chimney, and cup of coffee in hand. Girl cleaned up nice for TV. They had her in this kind of flowery blue/turquoise dress, and a pair of glasses. Granted, she's nowhere near the level of sexy she once was, but compared to what we've seen of her lately, she was looking pretty damn cute. Come to think of it, she kinda looked eerily like every picture I ever saw of (pre-preggo) Jamie Lynn.

So there you have it. I've done my Britney coverage for the day.
