Jamie Lynn Did Not Terminate Her ... Mom's Book

12/21/2007 3:58 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Christian publishers of Lynne Spears' "delayed indefinitely" memoir, "Pop Culture Mom," are going forward with the book, but insist it's not a parenting how-to -- it's a warning!
Lynne Spears and Jamie Lynn
Thomas Nelson publishing released a statement on their website saying, "Lynne's memoir will provide a window into the real-life world of fame and worldly success, including the toll it extracts (sic) from some who aspire to it. It will provide a much-needed corrective to a world obsessed with the wrong priorities." Sounds like a perfect gift for Britney.

The statement goes on to say, "We believe in redemption. Therefore, we are standing with Lynne and her family during this difficult time. Though the book has been delayed, we believe God is at work. The story is still being written, and we are confident in His ability to turn ashes into beauty. (Isaiah 61:3) " Maybe Jamie Lynn's pregnancy is a virgin birth!

While they are still going forward with the parenting how-not-to memoir, a rep for Thomas Nelson told TMZ, "(the) Book is still delayed indefinitely with no set release date."

SHE'S AN ATTENTION WHORE    

Now I've seen everything...

So, since momma spears has screwed the pooch on her book deal due to her terrible parenting skills, the publishers have changed the focus of the book. The original book was supposed to be about how to properly raise kids in today's culture, in a faith based manner. But, the author has shown herself to be one of the worst mothers of the century (she pimped out both her daughters into the entertainment industry so she can make money off of them, she killed off her own marriage by becoming their pimp (the father divorced her to get away from her), her 1st daughter is drug addicted & unmarried now with 2 kids & has mental problems, the 2nd daughter she allowed to date at age 11 & to live with an older man & become pregnant at 16). Since she obviously doesn't know how to parent correctly (she ought to take lessons from Dina Lohan, who sucks as a parent & pimps her daughter as well, but is still better than her), the publishers have decided that the only way to salvage this situation is to change the focus of the book to a "what not to do" or a "cautionary tale" book.

Just goes to show that just because the publishers are supposedly "Christian" doesn't mean they're honest; to me, they've cornered the market on lying & being hypocritical...

The hypocrisy of it all, This pop culture mom tells us how to raise children the right way and live a moral life
and yet this mom enrols her children in beauty pageants at a very young age almost as toddlers, did not
prioritize the completion of high school for Britney and did not set a stable home environment for her children.
And where is the father in all of this nowhere. And now a so called Christian publisher is going to fork over a
huge sum of money not because she knows hot to raise children but because she and Jamie Lynn are
"Christian" and they would know better anyway because of their so called faith and that just trumps anything.
If that mom was any kind of a good parent she would have cared enough to try to Britney, she has ignored her
and the father alone tried to get help for this "sick little girl", and since Jamie Lynn is pregnant at sixteen why
did the mom let her mess around unsupervised especially since Christians believe in abstinence until marriage.
This is just another case of the "do as I say not as I do" mentality of the Christian right.

calling it like i see it    

I am tired of all the bashing going on. This book was never about parenting. It was about a family in the spot light and how fame blew up in their face and caused a lot of problems. As far as Jamie Lynn goes, she is a child, a child who made a mistake, not like many other sixteen year olds who think they know it all. She is forced to deal with this in the public eye because of her fame. I am sure she is scared too death and very upset. For TMZ and other media outlets to call her names and joke about a very serious situation is not only immoral, it's just plain and simply not right. Report the facts and leave the name calling to the ignorant holy than thou people who make childish comments.

So these idiot publishers think that, since God is at work here, that Jamie Lynn got pregnant to help sell the book and God made her do it!!! These people are nuts!!!

There are four kinds of pregnancies in this world:

1.) Accidental

2.) Planned

3.) Forced

and…

4.) Those Planned For The Purpose Of Seeking Attention

In this case, it appears that it is number 4. Jamie Lynn Spears has been largely ignored by family members and friends…while older sister Britney has been on a spoiled brat fueled temper tantrum for years…bankrolled by hundreds of millions of dollars and encouraged by the accompanying press, and the almost non-stop focus of attention showered on Britney by her family members and family friends, etc., thanks to her selfishly dramatic antics.

Clearly, Jamie Lynn has felt ignored and lost in all this. In a short time, the Spears family has gone from a family member passing away of cancer (Britney and Jamie Lynn’s aunt)…almost a year ago…to Britney reacting to the impending tragedy for a couple of years…and now, the resulting tragedy of her aunt passing come to fruition…and the aftermath of that event.

Jamie Lynn has somehow been completely lost in the resulting mess as her sister Britney deals with the sadness through reckless relationships (sleeping around and hanging-out with suspect persons), having unwanted kids, using drugs, drinking, partying too much, and marrying the wrong people. There is a sense that she is trying to live hard and fast, fearing tomorrow isn’t promised. Well, that is a flawed view, especially if tomorrow does come…and you have destroyed your life, or that of others.

The divorce of Britney and Jamie Lynn’s parents hasn’t helped matters any…and Britney has emotionally pulled away from everyone in her life, including her baby sister…thus, leading Jamie Lynn into a pregnancy–one designed to shout out to her family, friends and business associates: “Hey, I’m alive!!! I matter too!!! And if I have to tear this whole house down and embarrass everybody, including myself, to get the attention that I deserve and have been so desperately missing–I will do so.” Hence the words… “Hey, Mom and Dad…I’m pregnant.”

Jamie Lynn is consciously and subconsciously trying to rebuild her family, by building a family of her own. She is desperate for attention…and this is a very sad call for help and acknowledgement in the face of her sister's overwhelming and choking fame.

Apparently, Lynn forgot to have that little "talk" every mom should have with their daughter(s).
