Kaplan said that the judge’s decision at last week’s ruling reflected an “improvement” in Spears’s condition. She spent full days, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., on both May 8th and Mother’s Day with her sons.
Asked about the current status of the relationship between the couple – including the rumor they would again star together on a TV show – Kaplan sidestepped any direct answers, instead saying that any potential reconciliation between Spears and Federline would be for the sake of their sons. (Britney makes her second appearance on CBS’s How I Met Your Mother Monday night.)
“If you’re going to have two parents participate in the lives of raising their children,” said Kaplan, “there has to be some camaraderie between them for that to be a meaningful expectation and reality.”
But are things better between the ex-husband and wife?
“When you go from where things were, when there was no visitation, to where they are now,” said Kaplan, “there will be some contact there’d be some ability to exchange a camaraderie that is necessary and a function of co-parenting together.”
