Somehow we don't think this is what Britney Spears' camp envisioned when they booked her to host a (well-paid) soiree at Pure in Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas, to ring in 2007.
What was supposed to be a celebration turned in to the latest soap opera that is Britney Spears' life.
Shortly after midnight, Britney was whisked out of the club after she fainted.
Vegas nightlife institution Robin Leach reports that Spears and her entourage of 27 were having dinner at the Social House Asian themed restaurant in Treasure Island before her appearance at Pure.
She nibbled on Kobe beef burgers, lobster curry salad and chicken fried rice before heading down to Pure.
We wouldn't be surprised if the good ol' reliable "food poisoning" excuse is tossed around to explain her fainting in the club around 12:45 A.M.
Here's the nitty gritty of what went down.
Spears had been seated on a VIP tented-cabana bed overlooking the dance floor at 12:50AM talking with one of her male dancers. She intimated she wanted to leave and as she stood up, "she went into a dead faint and just fell right to the floor."
Her group pulled her up and lay her on the bed at the same time as her personal security asked for the club to provide at least 10 other security managers to "get her out as quickly as possible." They surrounded the stricken pop star in an attempt to screen her from all observers and the new years revelers on the crowded dance floor.
One woman in the Spears' entourage yelled, "Make sure nobody gets any photos. No photos anywhere."
When the 12-strong security phalanx was in place, two of her dancers wrapped Britney in what appeared to be a blanket-hooded poncho. Literally carrying her in both arms, they managed to propel her through the crowds and out of the club.
It appeared as if "she was being dragged as she wasn't walking under her own speed" said one eyewitness. "It looked as if they wanted to get her up to her hotel room as soon as possible."
At 2AM this morning, an ambulance was summoned to the hotel but it was totally unclear if it was brought to Caesars for Britney.
For the brief time that Britney was inside Pure, she seemed in great spirits.
She danced for the crowd to her song I'm A Slave For You and did not one but two countdowns - one outside and one inside.
Inside the club she yelled "What happens in Vegas always stays in Vegas" and after the countdown she wished everybody a Happy New Year.
Unfortunately for Brit, January 1st - and probably this whole week - will be anything BUT happy for Britney.
