Good choice or do you even watch anymore?

Get the tab, Brit
And that she will, AFTER she walked out….
Britney Spears got into hot water when reports surfaced that she’d left a California Cheesecake Factory on Sunday, with a to-go bag in hand and didn’t pay the bill!
To everyone’s surprise, Brit thought her body guard had gotten the tab and the body guard thought she had got the tab; and on and on.
Since the pop princess doesn’t like getting her hand cake in the cheesecake jar, she’s decided to pay the $30 bill and bring the waitress a $100 tip to boot.
Good girl Brit
