True story: I went to dinner in Beverly Hills tonight. I know I know, so did Britney. Did I see any paparazzi? No. Did I see any swarms of people? No. Did I see Britney? NO! What the hell. That place isn’t too big, where the hell was I?! I did end up bumping into Larry King, true story! I should have set up an interview for Britney right then and there. Crazy *** night huh? And it all ended by having rain poor down on me cause apparently sunny L.A. isn’t so sunny. Ok ok back to Britney. She is pictured here in a purple silk dress and black fur coat, accompanied by her father while out to dinner at Mastro’s in Beverly Hills.

After a three-hour visit with her sons on Saturday (her first since Jan. 3), Britney Spears continued her family time Saturday night, stepping out to Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills with her father, Jamie.
Just before 8 p.m., the pop star and her dad were joined by an assistant, a family friend and two bodyguards for dinner. Clad in a purple silk dress, Spears smiled and appeared in good spirits as she headed inside.
“Britney looked stunning and everyone turned around to get a glimpse of her,” says a witness at the restaurant, adding that the group lead Spears to a private dining room. “Everyone seemed extremely protective of Britney.”
The party of six dined on a seafood tower with lobster, steak, french fries and lobster mashed potatoes. But Spears’s good mood seemed to diminish over dinner. According to an observer, “She seemed quiet.” After numerous bathroom and cigarette breaks, Spears and co. left the restaurant around 9:30 p.m., making their way through a pack of photographers with the help of restaurant staff.
Asked if he’d ever helped a celebrity exit the restaurant, a chef told PEOPLE, “Never! It was like being in a war zone. I almost lost my [chef’s] hat.”
