UPDATE: Britney Spears wants to spend the night with her kids


Britney Spears wants to have overnight visits with her children. Her lawyers will present their case at 8:30 AM PST and have urged Britney to actually show up for the hearing. TMZ reports:

We’ve also learned Spears has now had several clean drug tests. Brit’s lawyers will use these tests and other evidence to make their case. They’ve told Britney her presence will show the judge how much she cares about the kids — she finally gets it and plans to show.

Just in case you thought things were leveling out for this whole rag-tag bunch, TMZ had this to report:

Sources say the entire family — Britney, Kevin, Sean Preston and Jayden James — all have pink eye. That’s why K-Fed was wearing a K-Patch at the last hearing.

Well, they’re finally doing something together as a family. Granted it involves discharging pus from their eyes, I’d consider that an improvement for the Spears/Federline clan. At least you can cure this problem with antibiotics and eye drops. Sadly, you can’t cure Britney with anything short of a gastric bypass and frontal lobotomy. Both of which I volunteer to perform. I’m not a surgeon, per se, but I played the game Operation a lot as a kid. Don’t worry. Britney’s nose will beep bright red before I puncture her spleen. I saw that on the Discovery channel once – or was I watching Rudolph? Eh, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. Nurse, scalpel.

UPDATE: TMZ is reporting that Britney skipped the hearing. Either she really doesn’t want her kids back or Starbucks started adding bacon to Frappucinos today.
