Those sound like fightin' words! Adrienne Bailon kept things, well, real, on her daytime talk show The Real this week when the roundtable discussion turned to troubled former child stars. Bailon, who came to fame through her band 3LW and Disney Channel's "The Cheetah Girls," immediately jumped into the conversation by dissing "Ooh La La" singer Britney Spears, calling her the "pop princess who had the ultimate meltdown."
"Britney Spears needs to call Miley's stylist ASAP," the feisty talk show host said, as the now-infamous image of Spears shaving her own head popped up on the screen. But Bailon's snarky quips didn't end there.
"I've had to work with her on X Factor," Bailon explained. The singer served as a co-host for Pepsi's pre-show web series. "I would sit and do my interview with Demi [Lovato], I would do the behind-the-scenes stuff. [Britney] can't hold a conversation! Like, they have someone that feeds her what she's supposed to say. She can't hold a conversation.
As the audience gasped and clapped, fellow co-host Tamar Braxton chimed in to defend Spears' very public meltdown.
"I hear that behind the scenes, she's trying to get things back together," the reality star said. "They have a dry tour [where] you can't drink, you can't smoke … and I think that's appropriate, trying to stay clean and stay on the right track, and that's kind of cool."
Tamera Mowry-Housley agreed, noting that it was commendable that Spears was trying to get her life back on track. Comedienne Loni Love had a little less sympathy, however.
"Miss Britney Spears took a dude that was already with a girl that had babies," she pointed out, referring to Spears' ex Kevin Federline, who ditched his girlfriend Shar Jackson to be with the pop star (the pair had two kids together at the time). "And sometimes when you do that kind of stuff and take a dude, that's called karma."
