A couple of months ago, right around the time that Jamie Lynn Spears was found out to be pregnant and there was a huge scandal, the Spears mother Lynn Spears had to indefinitely postpone the release of her book about how to be a great parent when your kids are wannabe celebrity pop stars. What a shame. Now that the horror has died down and Jamie Lynn’s boyfriend is sticking by her and now that Britney has stopped losing her mind in public for attention, the book seems to be back in the realm of possibility.
Before the “unpleasantness”, the book was to bear the essentially gentle title “Pop Culture Mom” and it was to talk about how she learned to be a good mother despite the pressures of Hollywood blah blah blah.
After the unpleasantness the title has been changed to Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World". Isn’t that just DARLING!? I also love that Lynn Spears is essentially marketing herself as a source of information about raising kids when it’s clear that the only time that Britney stopped freaking out was when her father took over everything and roped her in. Where’s his book? I would actually prefer for him to be writing that book.
Lynn Spears is, however, more than likely just another Dina Lohan but she knows to shut up more. Best quote ever from People Magazine:
Lynne never stopped working on it because she wants to express her love for her children and tell their stories through a mother's eyes.
Yes, that’s what she wants. [source]
