For a week now and running, everyone in the world has had something to say about the news of Britney’s divorce from Kevin Federline. Just about a week before the divorce announcement, the already much-maligned K-Fed was the topic of many a blog, including one on superficial.com which was entitled: “Kevin Federline Actually Believes He’s Somebody,” which took K-Fed to task for his interview with Entertainment Weekly and then concluded:
“What can you say about K-Fed that hasn’t already been said? I guess I could start a rumor that his penis is so small he’s technically a girl. But that’s not really a rumor. It’s a fact.”
How in the world can someone who doesn’t even know K-Fed personally make such a stupid statement? One of the more tame replies came from Jeremy1Esq but still had a rather angry tone to it:
“…If my daughter brought home a guy with kids by another woman of a different race he didn’t even marry, my daughter would be disowned or have so much sense shaken into her that such a relationship would not take place. Not Britney’s family. She could have married any kind of guy she wants and ends up with a guy that even the dumbest poorest trailer park family would not welcome. …”
Prejudiced much? In any event, Britney did marry the guy she wanted to marry. On another television blog that talked about Kevin’s acting ambitions, a poster called Zoe said:
I have to wonder if Kevin Federline is going to follow in the footsteps of Carlos Leon (remember him? Lourdes’ Dad?) and start showing up as Thug #1 and Convict #2 on Law and Order episodes too.
Way back in March 2006, Kevin Federline was quoted in the press as saying that he might as well put a bulleye on his back. If he stays home, he gets criticized for being a loafer; if he goes out and works, he gets ragged on for that, too. “I can’t win,” he said. Notice that I didn’t say “whined.” I don’t know Kevin Federline, but I have been in some no-win situations in my life. In fact, when I had my first child, I had to go back to work to make ends meet for a little while and my in-laws acted like I didn’t care about my own child. Then when I stopped working, I was treated like a first-class leech so I can at least recognize the truth of those sentiments.
The Soup’s Joel McHale delightedly mocked a clip showing pre-divorce remarks Kevin Federline made about the many many places where he and Britney live, as well as showing the clip showing Federline taping a reality television show and talking about Spears being his biggest fan – until he gets a text message. This clip has since had over one million hits on YouTube.
That’s all before the wags get on the topic of money. When they do, the remarks range from the proverbial gravy train being over to avid speculation over whether he will get more than the $300,000 that Kevin Federline is allegedly entitled to under the couple’s pre-nup. Will he get the spousal support he’s countersued for? Not if he waived alimony in the prenup, it’s been said.
After being bombarded with over a week’s worth of the latest on the Spears/Federline split online, in the papers and on TV, I just couldn’t help but begin to wonder what’s behind all the animosity toward Kevin Federline.
Kevin’s ex, Shar Jackson, told Insider Edition that she thinks people should stop treating him like a punching bag. “He’s made some mistakes, but everybody else doesn’t have the whole world pointing their finger at their mistakes, ” she said. This interview didn’t escape Joel McHale’s nonsensical (we can hardly call it scathing) ridicule either. True, he left Shar Jackson when she was pregnant with his child to go with Britney, but for all I know Shar gave him her blessing. Let’s face it, superstars don’t grow on trees these days.
When I add up everything that I do know about K-Fed myself, it’s just not enough to provoke the comments ranging from smirking to outright nasty that are floating around everywhere. I have to wonder how many working stiffs wouldn’t jump at the chance to even date a superstar, let alone marry one. It reminds me a little of the movie Indecent Proposal with Demi Moore where Robert Redford offers her a million dollars to sleep with him for one night. So many people said they wouldn’t do it, but you just knew they were full of shit. People will do a lot worse things than sleep with Robert Redford to get a million dollars. Of course, reports are still flying that if the prenup prevails, Kevin Federline will only get a third of that action and he had to sleep with Britney Spears repeatedly!
So what about it, fellas? If you were the next one that Britney made cow eyes at, how would you like to be the next Mr. Britney Spears?
