Alli Sims, who's been riding her cousin's coattails to bits for quite some time now, chose to divulge the following to those new 3AM Girls while on the town ("sipping champagne cocktails" in the VIP section of LA's Avalon nightclub if you must know) after the Grammys: "Britney desperately wanted to come out with us to party tonight but we had to tell her 'no'... She needs to rein herself in. She needs to take a break from the limelight - from showbiz - and just concentrate on getting herself better, and being with her family. Every day's a struggle but Britney is getting a bit better day by day. I was with her today and, as a family, we take it in turns to be with her and watch over her 24/7. But it was just great that she was able to come out with us earlier - it's a small step but an important one. Britney is so anxious and so on-the-edge right now. She is incredibly keen to go out and doesn't understand when we tell her that it's not a good idea. But, at the same time, she desperately wants to be with her boys and be a great mother - and we want her to be as well. She just needs to have a break for as long as it takes until she's completely better. We are with her 100 per cent of the way." Dangling carrots.
