I realized this morning that it’s been a while since I’ve done a post about Britney Spears. Of course, that’s probably because she isn’t out creating chaos at all hours of the day and night. I’m so happy I have good news to report this time.
There’s one person we can thank for this much needed sanity – Britney’s dad, Jamie Spears. Once a wayward father, he has stepped up to the plate better than anyone else in Britney’s life.
Sources say it’s Jamie Spears’ tough love that has put her back on track. Naysayers can hoot ‘n’ holler all they want about whether Britney really needs someone to make decisions for her or whether Jamie’s just in it for the $2,500 weekly allowance…
• The Odd Couple: Britney’s got a roommate now that Jamie’s moved in to keep the demons out. “Jamie feels like this is his last chance to save his daughter,” a family insider tells E! News. “He knows he’s not perfect and hasn’t always been there, but he is determined not to make the same mistakes and take care of her. He knows Britney well enough to know he needs to be there or she will fall into bad habits.”
• 26 Going On 16: We hear Britney has a 10 p.m. curfew, meaning, no more midnight shopping or…whatever the heck else she was doing at all hours while in meltdown mode. Jamie’s also monitoring his little girl’s medication schedule, phone calls, her visits with her sons and at-home therapy sessions. And just as getting good grades in a normal house means getting to stay out till all hours on prom night, behaving in Britney’s house means trips to Dominick’s, text messages with Alli Sims and all the dance rehearsals she can handle.

Hooray for Jamie Spears! Keep up the good work!
