Lynne Spears Hates Bristol Palin

by at . Comments

No, not personally - but Lynne Spears is miffed that people vilified pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears, then praised the knocked up Bristol Palin.

This wasn't just the hypocritical reaction of idiots like Bill O'Reilly, either. Most of the general public had a "totally different reaction" to the teen pregnancies of Jamie Lynn and Bristol, Lynne said in an interview with Newsweek.

Ballas and Palin

"It's as if [Sarah Palin] became celebrated," Lynne said.

"I mean, the mother was celebrated for this... Every woman in the world applauded her strength and convictions and poor Jamie Lynn, you saw how she was crucified - everybody did, firsthand. I just feel like it's been a very hypocritical situation."

We'd have to agree.

In December, Jamie Lynn Spears, then 16, announced her pregnancy. She got engaged to Casey Aldridge and gave birth to daughter Maddie Briann in June at age 17.

In August, Sarah Palin, the Alaska Governor and Republican V.P. candidate, revealed that her 17-year-old daughter, Bristol Palin, is expecting and engaged to Levi Johnston.

"Do I promote teen sex? Of course not," Lynne said. "Do I promote teen pregnancy? Of course not. But when it happens, you deal with it and you do the best you can do."

Britney Spears' mom added: "Jamie Lynn has done beautifully with what she's done. Could every other teenager do what Jamie Lynn has done? No, indeed."

Lynne also rebutted criticism that Jamie Lynn Spears glamorizes teen pregnancy.

"We don't want this said, 'cause this would be glamorizing, but I will tell you a secret: her baby does sleep all night," she said. "What do you think about those apples? Maddie is the best baby I have ever seen. She is like a little angel!"

Lynne, the author of a new, tell-all memoir titled Through the Storm, told Newsweek that she "really can't give advice" to Sarah Palin's family.

"Everybody's situation is different," she said.

"I would never tell anybody else what to do with their child. I would never attempt to make them think I knew more about their child. Even if they were to ask, I would tell them dig deep, what do you think?"

Are you kidding? Lynn Spears had the audacity to write a "parenting book" while her two girls set questionable examples (Britney's head shaving, breakdowns, and non-court appearances), and Jamie Lynn's claim to be a "Virgin, till married" to keep her reputation crystal clean! Gimme a B R E A K! Sarah Palin, admitted her daughter's situation, while not condoned, professed to be supportive. Good, God Lynn, get over yourself and your self-absorbed offspring!

Maybe we should elect Mrs. Spears as VP...she's probably traveled more than Mrs. Palin.

So what if Bristol was never a role model on nickelodean like Jamie was. That is no excuse for the massive hypocrisy some show when it comes to them. Jamie Lynn may be a role model but it's not her job to parent her fans. Their parents should be teaching them about sex not leaving it to a celeb.

I think people just want to critisize jamie because of her families background I honestly think is wrong all teen pregnancies are different. I had my son at 15 and was judge strongly by doctors and teachers and think is unfair how one teen pregnancy is considered ok and the other bad they both are going thru the same thing and everyone needs to leave Jamie ALONE!!! She hasn't done anything wrong and she wasn't advertising teen pregnancy! I honestly think she is doing a great job and setting an exsample for all the teen moms out there!!

you people can stop bashing lynn spears. her book is amazing and its wonderful that she had the nerve to write all that. everybody is more sympathetic to bristol because she was not on national tv. well let me say this, jamie lynn spears is a normal teenager, when she got pregnant to me she was just a normal young lady. she will never be the last teenager to get pregnant. so she was an actress, they had not right to bash her the way they did. the stuff that she has been through is awful. you guys need to seriously get a new hobby instead of bashing the spears sisters. get a life love
jamie lynn spears biggest fan and supporter
