Oops, she's doing it again.

CBS' "How I Met Your Mother" begins production today on a new episode, guest-starring Britney Spears. The troubled pop star reprises her role as Abby, the dermatologist's assistant who had a crush on Ted (Josh Radnor) and is now dating ... wait for it ... Barney (Neil Patrick Harris).

20th Century Fox Television, which produces the show, issued a press release today about the new episode, which included a statement from co-creator Craig Thomas:  "We're all so thrilled to have Britney joining us once again. And just to head it off at the pass this time around: Yes, Mom, Britney's very nice and no, I can't get her autograph for you."

The episode will air on May 12.
