    She only get roles as long as she fuucks and sucks on Timberb!tch, that’s why they are together.
    His career is over and hers is working good this year but what’s next year? Timberb!tch’s popularity is sinking!
    Next year they both will be unemployed!

    @aka:

    SHUT UP! You’re talking as if Timberlame is so relevant, he himself is desperate for attention! Don’t forget he only has a career thanks to his high profile relationship with the biggest star in the world, Britney Spears. And we all know how he used that to get to where he is today. Karma is a b%tch and it will hit his a$$ soon for all the pain he caused her.

    Both him and this horse faced ugly dude deserve one another.

    great for her!! It’s Brodway they sure have good reasons to choose her and not someone else, so haters get out & get a life you don’t want to see her don’t watch her, waste your time anywhere else!!

    Timberlame is a nobody if he cant use Britney, her kids, her ex-husband or her family to sing or talk about. This was his plan to use her and her family his life long to get famous and rich. He thought this will always work.
    His acting career is lame just like himself. he’s worse as some z-list actors.

    Dont worry this is just another flop as usual that she will cause although she will give everything with her slimy ugly mouth and will scream as loud as she can.

    That’s great for her but I thought she did a Broadway show before? Either way, Broadway is tough – it’s not a movie where they can edit or or where you can keep doing takes until you get it right. Go Jessica!
