Mother of the Year

Mother of the Year

Talk about great timing and chutzpah! I guess it was just one strike too many for even a money-grubbing publisher to ignore. With the recent revelations that 16-year-old teen queen and virginal Nickelodeon star Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant, mother Lynne’s upcoming tome on raising children has been “delayed indefinitely.” What’s amazing is that the always classy behavior of older daughter Britney was not enough to dissuade the Tennessee publisher of religious books from a blockbuster release of “Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World.” It took the kid sister children’s-TV-star getting knocked up by her church-going teenage boyfriend to stop the presses. The world will be a much poorer place without the maternal wisdom and parenting skills of Lynne Spears’ being spread like the gospel–you know the “real” version could’ve been a fun and trashy read, admit it.
