All 288 pages of it. Now, editors are scrambling to re-write. This book gushed about Sam and how their romance was a happily ever after fairy-tale. If she was going to cheat on Sam, why go to the lengths she did in the manuscript to heap praise on him and gush about what a wonderful influence he has been on her life. Does she not have any common sense?"

They were just stuck in that house making videos all the time as that's the thing that interests her. I think it's obvious that there are some serious issues in play. She is a damaged person and although she talks a lot about being a strong independent woman she remains damaged. It's very sad. Sam's a nice guy and I hear that he tried. The sensible people in her life will be sad that the marriage is over. The feeling was that he thought he could save her, but maybe there is no saving Britney.’’

Dear Fonseca,

My fiance and I just got a new puppy. She wants to name him after her late fiance. He passed away three years before we started dating. I think its totally weird and will think of this guy every time I pet my dog or say his name. She says it would mean a lot to her if I cave in and allow her to name our puppy Chris. I think it's disrespectful to ask me to do that. I can also see her point. My sister says my fiance is being ridiculous and needs to let this guy go. She can't believe she would ask me to make that kind of concession. Where do you stand on this? Should I allow her to name the dog after her late fiance?
