Britney definitely back on How I Met Your Mother

Britney SpearsWe knew it was coming. Since her first appearance on How I Met Your Mother broke ratings records for the series, it was inevitable that Britney Spears would return as crazy receptionist Abby. Last week we reported that Spears would be reprising her role on HIMYM. Today, CBS confirms the news and dishes about the episode that will mark the singer's return.

What's interesting about Britney's upcoming storyline in HIMYM is that she'll be paired with Neil Patrick Harris. If you recall the actor was recently misquoted saying that the show didn't need guest stars like Britney Spears.

Spoilers ahead!

Spears will return in episode "Everything Must Go" set to air on May 12. The episode, which will mostly focus on Lily's painting career, will have Abby (played by Spears) date Barney (played by Harris). The press release sent by CBS mentions that the duo will find out that they have one major thing in common: they hate Ted. "The couple decides to go to the bar to flaunt their new relationship in Ted's face. Desperate to get a rise out of his former pal, Barney pops a surprising question to Abby," reveals the press release.

This seems to be a fitting storyline for Spears' character and she may give yet another "not that bad" performance. As for why Barney ends up hating Ted, it'll be clearly explained in the May 5 episode titled "Rebound Bro."

Anyone else think NPH is getting punished somehow for being anti-Britney by them forcing his character to propose marriage to her? Because that is just WARPED.

To my defense, I wrote this post before last night's episode but it was posted after. Also, per spoilers the real blow up will come when Barney finds himself a new rebound bro.

Oh man, what if it was Sandy Struthers?!! That would be hilarious.
