I’m sorry, but Lynn Spears was letting her 16-year-old LIVE with her boyfriend. That’s just wrong, always wrong. I think the kids money runs that family and not the parents. Pat.
Crabby agrees with you that money has corrupted Lynn, that she is a very bad mommy. Although I am flummoxed why her book on motherhood has been cancelled. (Doesn’t “Whoops! I did it at 16”
seem like an appropriate chapter for a book entitled Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World?.”
But that does not mean that Jamie Lynn’s child will be condemned to a life of white-trash living, suicide, or drug addiction. Remember Brooke Shields’ mother had her posing nude at 12
in that awful movie about love in some lagoon. And Brooke turned out pretty well, post-partum depression and antidepressants nothwithstanding. Anything can happen to the developing
Spears fetus. I do not condone teens going out and getting pregnant. But Jamie is not an average 16-year-old. She was weaned on the golden honey of Hollywood. And thus she’ll never have to
pay for mistakes in the same way as the average American teenager who must seek education and social acceptance in order to support him or herself over a lifetime. Remember, Pat, this is
America, anything can happen in Tabloid World. And wouldn’t the strangest twist in this drama be for the kid to end up an Ivy Leaguer? Let’s keep our fingers crossed, Pat. Crabby.
