Shannon Funk: Britney's Fired Assistant

Shannon Funk: Britney's Fired Assistant

Britney Spears pulled the plug yesterday on her latest blonde, Shannon Funk.

Britney felt a lot of her recent troubles started and stopped with Shannon,” an insider close to Britney tells Life & Style. “Britney thought she was talking badly about her. She was very rude and Britney felt she was letting business emails fall by the wayside.”

Britney fired assistant/cousin Alli Sims last month. She’s been going through assistants like nothing!

WOULD YOU WORK as Britney’s new assistant? She’s hiring!

    If she is paying a ridiculous amount of money to put up with her antics, I would. At least until I saved enough money to move on from the circus of Britney.

  • Barbara

    Yeah, Britney, really. It’s all her fault. Yep. Yep. She’s to blame for everything.

  • Blueskyeyes

    It really seems like Britney is spiraling out of control. I feel sorry for her and hope that someone comes around who will be honest with her, and who will lead her to the kind of care, support, and understanding that she needs. Peace.

  • Angie

    I wish the best for Brit, she deserves to be happy, and sorround herself only by people who truly care about her.

    You know what’s stupid, someone thinking Britney’s smart enough to make her employees sign anything. Especially when that workers an ‘Assistant’, which to Brit is nothing more than a friend to hangout with in front of photographers.

    Stupid..

  • gi

    Britney was just upset that this woman is thiner than her.
    Britney is such an arrogant b*itch, she upsets everyone, and blames
    everyone else for everything. It’s about time someone shut this vile w.hore up for good.

  • Ashley

    Can you get me the job I would

  • sam

    i think britney was dating her. i don’t think she was her assistant. And the girl never really acted like her assistant.

  • sheila

    I hope and pray that her next assistant can be someone who will give her unconditional LOVE and understand what she is going through. Someone who understand why she is behaving in such a way. Someone whom she can trust and help her get through these tough times. Girl, I am one of those crazy fans who still believe in you. Who have faith in YOU. We understand what you are going through. We know that you are trying to do the right things but sometimes what you thought was GOOD for you is not GOOD for other people, People who continue to judge you. Seems like they never get tired criticizing you. Without knowing what you are feeling and going through. Experiences is what molds a character and attitudes. And you are an extra ordinary girl who had experience a lot. Right now, you felt that you don’t know who you can trust because you don’t know what other people’s motives by being around you. Keep praying girl and your fans still cares for you and praying for you. God is the only one you can TRUST and He will lead you the way. You are a smart girl. You can do it without them.

    haha…#27

    Funk? Really? She must have picked that name in the ’70s when the word ‘funk’ had something to do with music. Has anyone told her that ‘funk’ means something completely different these days?

  • cat

    her parents are trying to stage a major intervention to save her life. my only question is what has taken them so long?

  • EvilLynn

    #28 Sheila — are you f.u.c.k.i.n.g JOKING? “Unconditional LOVE?” An assistant is an employee. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s a professional working relationship. Period. She’s not a therapist, a friend, a child-care expert, a support system or any of that other s.h.i.t. An assistant helps sync up your blackberry, manages your appointments, tasks, and schedule, maintains and manages contact databases and acts as a liason between the Boss and the rest of the staff. Crazy bosses who cross that line lose competent assistants and get stuck with mentally deficient sycophants.

    ..Britney probably fired the poor girl because she refused to go on a drug run…

  • gini

    yes!!! she’s more funny that my boss!!

  • Mmmmm

    Someone needs to fire Britney from show biz, tell her to pack it up and go back to the south and raise her family.

  • sparrow

    call a reputable employment agency and find a qualified assistant! Assistants are NOT paid friends. A good one will help Britney a lot.

    Britney should hire an experienced assistant. Oh yeah, one problem——-they probably don’t want to work for a nutcase like Britney. Part of Britneys’ problem is that she thinks she knows everything and doesn’t want to hear advice. One mark of some brains is knowing what you don’t know and getting the right people to help you.

    Look at Angelina Jolie, From all accounts she’s a pretty serious nutcase herself, but she’s hired the right people to help her have the image she wants in Hollywood. They protect her from the worst part of her weirdness. Same with Tom Cruise.

    But perhaps Britney has EXACTLY the image she wants. God isn’t that a scary thought?????????

    who gives a damn

  • Andie

    I am praying for her. She needs help; she is being hounded mercilessly by the press. K-Fed married her because she was his cash cow. We do not know the private details as to what creepy things K-Fed may have done to her emotionally, physically and sexually to help create her meltdown.

    I believe that she does not have a friend in the world save for her immediate family; they would love her for her.

    The others who she employs or hangs with are jealous of her money and will take it without conscience.

    I shudder to think that Britney could end up like Marilyn Monroe (drug providers, false friends and users) or Anna Nicole Smith (drug providers, false friends and users) or Princess Diana (paparazzi, false friends, users and being hounded) – if she has no caring intervention given to her. People who used and enabled these three (now dead) women were without a soul. All they cared about was what they could get out of these poor women. Could someone (like perhaps Oprah) help her privately and personally without any fanfare or paparazzi involvement?

    I feel for her. She is lost – but she could find herself.

    shannon funk is just as retarded as britney spears. i grew up with her – and she got me expelled from highschool because i laughed after the kid sitting in front of me in math class made fun of her nasty ass synthetic hair extensions. fuckin cry baby.

  • kaycee

    Um OK you don’t get kicked out of school for laughing.

    I wouldn’t want to work for Britney, at least not right now. She is STALKED by paparazzi mercilessly!

    I feel so bad for her. She can’t go anywhere without 50 paps pushing their way right in her face. Yes, she is a public figure. But she doesn’t deserve the harrassment she has to endure. People think it is their right to know every step she makes and it’s just not. It’s wrong for these people to do what they are doing to her.

    The media can make anyone look however they want when they have pictures of every move someone makes. If they want to make her look bad they will. I guarantee if she got all made up and looked great all the time they would not be painting this awful picture of her. Because she doesn’t get all made up she is a trainwreck. Whatever. If she loses her kids it will be because of the paparazzi. While it may be in the kids best interest, it is a crying shame because I do believe she is a good mother.

  • Idoits_on_this_website
