Britney Spears to guest star HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER

Britney Spears

No this is not a joke, according to Watch With Kristin, Britney spears will appear in an episode of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER. No details have been released yet about what part she will play, but Kristin might have the scoop:

And insiders tell us exclusively that the most likely role for Britney in that episode is “Abby,” a girl who works in Ted’s doctor’s office. She’s described as “sweet and friendly and scattered and a little nerdy—a female Michael Cera.”

Britney Spears is scheduled to appear on the 14th episode.

So I just lost a little bit of respect for How I Met Your Mother, seriously, Britney Spears?!!! that’s all they could think about to boost their ratings?

I will watch the episode just because I love How I Met Your Mother and I hope that they will not make the episode about Britney, but keep the essence of the show. So needless to say I am not happy about this news. At least we have Alicia Silverstone to make up for this.

Before I finish, I just want to play devil’s advocate for a second here. I do see the point of bringing Britney Spears for media attention and if that means that How I Met Your Mother gets another season because of it, then I’ll just suck it up. At least she’s not a regular and to be honest I have found her to be pretty decent on Saturday Night Live.
