Adrienne Bailon had some harsh words for Britney Spears yesterday on her talk show The Real, saying that the pop singer cannot even hold a conversation.
Bailon noted that the star had the "ultimate meltdown," then went on to recall her stint as a backstage host on The X Factor and her interaction with Spears:
"I'm not going to lie to you, guys... she can't hold a conversation. They had someone who feeds her what she is supposed to say. Like, she can't hold a conversation."
Her co-hosts were sympathetic to Spears' plight, however.
"This is what I hear," said Tamar Braxton of Britney.
"Behind the scenes, she's trying to get it together."
Tamera Mowry-Housley added, "And we have to respect that."
Britney, who was famously hospitalized under a 5150 hold a la Amanda Bynes back in 2008, will not return for Season 3 of The X Factor on Fox.
She turned her career back around 180 degrees following that meltdown, selling out a wildly successful Circus tour and regaining custody of her kids.
Clearly, it's still a battle, but it appears she's winning it ...
