Britney's Baby Bookby Albertina Rizzo
In the last two years pop superstar Britney Spears has gone from America's Sweetheart to America's favorite train wreck. While she has sold over 70 million albums and has her own #1 selling perfume, her smoking, drinking, Cheeto-eating, barefoot-in-public-restrooms lifestyle that has been immortalized by the tabloids has far outshone her career. Shortly after her sudden marriage to Kevin Federline, a former pizza delivery boy and unemployed back-up dancer, she announced a reality series-consisting of the couples' embarrassingly personal home videos-and her pregnancy. There is only thing that fascinates Americans more than a former Mouseketeer's downward spiral and that is a pregnant former Mouseketeer's downward spiral.
Britney's Baby Book, a hilarious parody of what the baby book for Britney and Kevin's buddle of joy would look like, is created with this image in mind. Each page contains handwritten reminiscences on the couple's relationship, the pregnancy, special moments, and their hopes and dreams for their new addition. Complete with drawings, doodles, keepsakes, and photos, this book perfectly lampoons the image of the couple America can't get enough of.
About the Authors: Albertina Rizzo was born and raised in New York City. She is the co-author of Hold My Gold: A White Girl's Guide to the Hip-Hop World, and was previously an editor for Seventeen and New Woman Magazines. Ms. Rizzo has a yearly subscription to Star magazine and once saw Britney at a party doing shots of Jagermeister, before being pushed in the face by Big Rob (Britney's security) and told that "Britney doesn't like strangers." Also, her brother sort of looks like Kevin Federline sometimes.
Amanda McCall was also born and raised in New York City and co-wrote Hold My Gold: A White Girl's Guide to the Hip-Hop World with Ms. Rizzo. She has worked at The Late Show with David Letterman. Dave has almost certainly met Britney Spears.

When my husband handed this book to me as a surprise, I shot him a look to kill because I absolutely can't stand Britney. How dare he put 1 cent of ours in to their pocket! But when he said 'No no, it's funny, check it out', I read it. It is so clever and so right on with the way Britney and Kev (tru luv 4 eva!) speak and conduct themselves. From the 'Your Future' page: 'You're dad will teach U really freakin' hott dance moovs + I will teach you Kabala-ish stuff + spirichool stuff + also how to believe your truth + B real + also not to not be fake so when people aren't real, you can be down 2 earth + not fake because everything else is whatever, ya'll!' A very funny read for anyone who shakes their head in disbelief at these two. (Amanda and Albertina, you have a fan for life! - Wutt! Wutt!)
