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."

why?    

JAMIE CAN PULL THROUGH THIS AND BE A GOOD MOM TO HER CHILD. THERE ARE 2 PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR PREGNANCY, AND THAT IS THE TWO PEOPLE THAT MAKE THE BABY. JAMIE WAS WISE ENOUGH TO KNOW RIGHT AND WRONG. THE BOYFRIEND SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE ADULT, AND TOOK A COLD SHOWER. AS MUCH AS WE WOULD LIKE TO BLAME BRITNEY, SHE WAS MARRIED BEFORE SHE HAD 2 CHILDREN. SHE SEEMED TO BE DOING PRETTY GOOD WITH HER KIDS, UNTIL SHE WENT THROUGH THE SEPARATION OF HER MARRIAGE.

A "warning"? I can be much more concise: Don't Have Sex Without Protection Or You Might Get Pregnant. Ok, send me my millions.

didnt this lady recently say that she could not focus her attention on britney spears because she needed to focus on her underage daughter jamie lynn? So they are are Christian huh? They always get to bend the rules (sex/pregnancy before marriage, divorce, bad parenting) how ever way they see fit yet the rest of us are not good enough to go to heaven! Figures!

Will she cover the pitfalls of living off the sale of one's grandbabies photos? That woman is major trash. Her income is more important to her than her own children and grandchildren. Pregnant 16 year old daughter and her first thought is how do I get some cash from this.

God help us if Jamie Lynn’s baby is a girl. I’m praying for a boy, who won’t be sucked into this Spear’s legacy. Maybe then, this nonsense will end.

This has got to be the most dysfunctional family on the planet. Britney’s boys have no monetary value to her, because they can’t be turned into little underage girls to be “pimped-out” to loser males.

The last time Lynn Spears probably ever had sexual relations with her husband Jamie, was 9 months before Jamie Lynn’s birthday.

Lynn Spears’ book should never be published. She needs to get a waitress or sales clerk job to survive.

I don't know if this is a sign that the end times are upon us, but I am deeply concerned about a publishing house sending out a press release that misuses the word, "extracts," when it should have said, "exacts." A publishing house, for the love of all that is holy! It's almost as bad as using, "adverse," when you mean to say, "averse." *teeth grinding*

The chances that Jamie Lynn Spears and the father of this unborn child making a go of this relationship are just about zero. And who pays the price? the child. I read that Jamie has been with the guy since she was 13...what in the hell is a 13 year old doing with a 16 year old, much less dating? The parents of Jamie and Britney have really raised a couple of train wrecks...and one is ready to publish a book on parenting? Once again Paul Peterson of "A Minor Consideration" is so right. Kids in show business who end up a mess and the parents reaping the benefits of big bucks. Miss Spears may say she is keeping her baby and taking responsibility but who will really raise the child? Nanny's no doubt. And what happens when she finds out she wants to go out, have a ball and party like her big sister? Once again a child is not put first. She is far too young for any of this and given enough time, the boyfriend, who needs to be charged with statutory rape will seek greener pastures and leave a child in the dust. As far as the Disney company and Nickolodeon, don't they have morality clauses in the contracts? Neither of the Spears girls are fit to be role models for our young girls. And lets face it, young girls are very impressionable. Teen pregnancy is a huge problem and needs to be addressed honestly, not made to look like it is so wonderful. Babies having babies....if Jamie did not have a money making career, who would be footing the bills? Tax payers. It sure is a different world from when I was 16....it was a rare thing to see or hear of teen pregnancy before the sexual revolution. I am not sayong it didn't happen, it did but not on the level it has reached over the years. Eventually the Spears family will have played out their time in the likelight and will disappear. But what of the off spring. I even wonder about Federline....he plays the big hero of his 2 boys from Britney...what of the other 2 kids he has? He needs to tie his weenie in a knot! Or get a vasectomy! Lynn Spears and her book? Baloney! Check out "A Minor Consideration" and find out the real truth of putting your kids in show business.

Mom should advise her daughters' to SWALLOW or take it in the BACK DOOR so they won't get pregnant.

I hope Nick allows the situation grow its own legs. Jamie Lynne should become even more of a roll model now and use her celeb to show young people how to cope. It would be awful to see in this day and age that we just let Jamie Lynne ride off in the sunset. No body is allowing her sister too. Give them all a break.

Lynn Spears is an idiot, even a how not book from her is pathetic. What to expect in Hollywood... You couldn't handle raising your daughters in hollywood lady . The last person anyone would read advice from is you.
Instead of riding her daughters coat tails and making money off their name, why doesn't she help her daughter who needs her.
She came down to L.A to help her but than she announces the book deal while she is down... like what ? one day. Britney has so gotten worse since Lynn has arrived in socal.
The fact that she has a good relationship with Kevin , being a divorced woman herself, is so horrible. I m sure this makes Britney feel so confident and trusting. Just think of those dynamics its enough disfunction to send a sane person to therapy nevermind a troubled woman like Britney. As far as where she is with the boys, a young mom like britney would have needed her mother's direction, advice and guidance on how to raise the kids. Where is the role modeling there, where is the warning there Lynn. Go back to kentwood you hillbilly attention whore. She is a freakin Teacher by profession. she was present at the first monitored visit, and Britney is said to have been disconnected from her children and lacking attentiveness towards them. Hello, where was her warning then, any mother present right then would had given Britney a stern heads up...WARNING... so yes many Britney issues fall on LYNN this abusive neglectful attention whore.
