Through the ($h!t) Storm: Lynne Spears' Memoir Set to Cash in On Scandalous Britney Spears Gossip

by at . Comments

For what was billed as an evangelical book about "parenting," Lynne Spears' widely-ridiculed much-anticipated memoir - Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World - is chock full of tawdry tales.

The New York Daily News reviewed a copy and shared some juicy tidbits:

  • Britney Spears took a liking to booze when she was just a 13-year-old Mouseketeer, then began experimenting with drugs at 15.
  • By 16, Britney's drug-fueled behavior stunned her family when the wild one was caught with coke and marijuana on a private jet.

  • Lynne Spears knew about, yet openly allowed 16-year-old Britney to sleep with boyfriend Justin Timberlake, her Mickey Mouse Club co-star.
  • Timberlake was misled about Brit's purity, as she had lost her virginity to a Kentwood, La., high school football player (Reg Jones) at 14.
  • As Spears' career began to take off, the All-American mom went along with the hoax that Britney was a virgin to boost her image.

Man, way to throw your daughter under the bus right as she's getting her train wreck life back together, Lynne Spears. Good to see you'd rather try to get rich than do what's best for Britney just once. Enjoy the weather where you're going, sellout.

As we said when we first learned about Through the Storm, we don't think the title and cover do it justice. Here are our proposed versions ...

Other quality titles conjured up by our interns, such as Milking the Ever-Loving Crap Out of Your Poor Kids, were rejected for not being catchy enough.

I would like to see Britney and Her sister Jamie to write about about their life with their mother. that book i will buy but i will not buy the book by their mother. It seems to me that Lynne Spears has major issues that it has effect her parentigt skills. if she was a good mother she would not have written the book. And to be Jealous that she not getting any money from Britney. i am glad her father has the control. he to me is the better parent. their mother wants to hurt them so why should she get control

Roda Monroe had an interview right after Lynne Speaars and she talked to her and she remarked on how self-absorbed Lynne is even when she's trying to be humble. No wonder her poor children are messed up royally.

Totally agree!. She is full of sh!t. Seriously she has got some cheek making originally a book about parenting!!!! And it's pretty horrible to tell the whole world about all of Britney's problems when she is actually doing ok for once. It's like when she finally gets back on track then her own mother publishes all this stuff about how she lost her virginity at 14 and how she was addicted to drugs at like 16 or something!! Seriously could she be any stupider!! Total waste of space! They would all be better off without her in their lives.

I THINK LYNNE SPEARS IS THE WORST MOTHER IN THE WORLD. NOT ONLY USES BRITNEY TO BE THE BREAD WINNER IN THE FAMILY EVER SINCE SHE WAS A LITTLE GIRL" FORCE TO GROW UP AND SUPPORT HER PARENTS ". LYNNE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HER SELF.SHE SUCH A HORRIBLE MOTHER WHO DOES NOT CARE ABOUT HER KIDS. WHAT HAPPENED TO BRITNEY AND JAIME LYNN IS 100% HER FAULT. THEY BETTER OFF WITHOUT A MOTHER. THE TITLE OF HER BOOK SHOULD BE'' TERRIBLE MOTHER MEMOIR'' BY LYNNE SPEARS IS FERFECTLY APPROPRIATE. NIKKA
