While many say that Britney Spears is getting what she deserves, I feel pretty bad for the gal. She has lived a life that is always in the spotlight and is attempting to undergo a divorce, raise 2 children, and bring back her singing career. All of this in the midst of trying to find herself. So yeah, I feel for her and wish her the best in rehab (last straw had to be the whole beating down the car with an umbrella ordeal). But just a couple weeks ago, at NYC Fashion Week, Britney was totally snubbed by fashion designer and model Lydia Hearst. Hearst had 100 bags to giveaway and when Brit asked for one, was completely denied.
A source told the New York Daily News: “Britney wanted to go backstage at the Heatherette fashion show during New York Fashion Week to collect a bag and promised to carry it to her front-row seat at where she would be photographed with it. But there were only 100 bags and her offer was politely declined.”
Hearst said: “I’m only giving the bag to accomplished young women who are doing something positive to affect the world around them. They are women I look up to and respect, like Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker and Anne Hathaway. They share the same high standards, and give back to the communities in which they live.”
After her request was turned down, Britney did not make an appearance at the Heatherette fashion show at all.
Leslie Sloane Zelnick, Britney’s overworked rep, denied reports and said: “It’s not true.”
