(Newser) – Oops, she popped pills again—and again, and again, reports the New York Post, describing the cocktail of 100 prescription pills pop spectacle Britney Spears washed down with a "Purple Monster" (a mix of vodka, Nyquil, and Red Bull) in the 36 hours leading up to her flip-out. Even Dr. Phil couldn't penetrate the haze.

The binge allegedly included 10 sleeping pills, 12 Vicodins, six Ritalins, and 10 Zantacs, sources told News of the World, as well as a crazed rant to kid sis Jamie Lynn. Brit was released on Saturday, shortly after Dr.Phil and his wife tried an intervention. "It'll be a cold day in hell before Britney goes on his show," said one source.
