Glee Does Britney

This week, "Glee" did a Britney Spears episode.

I'm risking being hated for this, but I didn't love it. I am a Britney Spears fan, but I feel that the Glee cast did not do Britney's plasticky perfect music justice. Here's the thing, though - Britney's music is so processed that it's hard to match the perfection in real life. Practically no one can do it, even with the help of editing.

I did like that Britney did a guest spot on "Glee," and I liked that the cast took on her music. However, my favorite song of the episode was the Paramore song "The Only Exception."

I also enjoyed the Britney Spears references, like the use of the phrase, "It's Britney, Bitch" and "Leave Britney alone."

Michael and Chelsea were kicked off "Dancing With the Stars."

I would guess that this was due to a combination of not great dancing and not being a fan favorite. For example, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino could probably be really, really bad, but he'd stick around. I feel bad for Michael, though, because he looked devastated after learning that he'd been eliminated.

On "Teen Mom," Maci settled into her new home.

Maci struggled with being far from Ryan and having to take Bentley back to their hometown when Ryan wants to see him. Maci wants to co-parent with Ryan, but he makes it so difficult.

Amber was her usual angry, abusive self. Enough said.

Catelynn and Tyler dealt with not graduating from high school on time.

Farrah's lawyer got in touch with Kassy, who is the sister of Sophia's father. Kassy had gotten closer to accepting the idea of a paternity test. Farrah broke the news to her mom, who did not seem thrilled with Farrah reaching out to Derek's family, as she never liked them.

After that was said and done, Kassy reached out to Farrah and they agreed to meet up. Kassy showed up as planned and her daughter and Sophia got to meet. Kassy admitted that Derek really cared about Farrah, and presented Sophia with pictures of her father.

Kassy and Farrah seemed to take a good step in the right direction, but Farrah's mom brought Farrah right back down from the good place she found. I sometimes truly question her judgment.

I read in People magazine that Catelynn and Tyler, as of the interview in last week's magazine, are the only couple from "Teen Mom" that are still together. In her pictures, Catelynn looked great. She got a facial piercing and lost a ton of weight. Also according to the magazine, Amber's still studying for her GED, Maci's still seeing Kyle and Farrah's still single.

I definitely agree with you about Glee! They had some really great one liners, though, since they featured the character Britney S. Pierce, hahaha. She's so funny.
