Lynne Spears, mother of Britney Spears and Jamie Lynn Spears, has always been known for her deep desire to cash in commitment to strong parenting.

Her memoir - yes, her f*%king memoir - which was delayed last winter amid Jamie Lynn getting knocked up at 16, will be now released this fall.

Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World is the title. We're serious. Sorry, we're a little thrown off by this.

The book will chronicle Lynne Spears' pimping out raising of Britney, 26, and Jamie Lynn, 17, and how she ruined their lives for the sake of money groomed them into stars while coming from small-town Louisiana.

Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears

"When Jamie Lynn Spears got pregnant, the book was put on hold," a representative for Spears' publisher, Thomas Nelson Inc., said.

"But Lynne never stopped working on it because she wants to express her love for CA$H her children and tell their stories through her eyes."

"[It] will not be a parenting book," the rep said of the book, which was originally set to be titled simply Pop Culture Mom.

"It's [Lynne Spears] telling her story of what it was like being a mom and raising two very famous people. It's a memoir."

This book should come with a noose - if you buy it, there's really no point in going on. At least the weather's warm where Lynne's going.

With Britney Spears embroiled in a seemingly never-ending custody battle and Jamie Lynn Spears expecting her first child in July, the May 2 wedding and baby shower for the latter provided some much-needed relaxation and fun!

"It was wonderful to be able to spend some time with her and just be girls again," Jamie Lynn Spears told OK! Magazine in an exclusive interview about seeing her train wreck big sister for the first time in months.

"We painted our nails and did stupid stuff."

Jamie Lynn, who has been laying low in their hometown of Kentwood, La., since Casey Aldridge knocked her up, was thankful for her privacy.

"To be able to be here in the privacy of our own home and just be sisters again was wonderful," she said.

Jamie Lynn Spears' and Britney Spears' mother, Lynne Spears, has turned to God in a desperate bid to keep those fat paychecks rolling in help her two troubled daughters stay strong in these difficult times.

Struggling Lynne has a lot on her mind these days - her eldest daughter has twice been hospitalized for mental illness, and 17-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant - with that baby bump growin' every day!

Britney Spears: Reverse Angle

But the matriarch is philosophical about the family's problems, revealing that she's hoping regular prayers will turn their fortunes around.

In an exclusive interview in the upcoming issue of Life & Style magazine, which surely didn't pay Lynne Spears anything for her insight, she says:

"All I can do is turn to God for money answers and just leave it in his hands."

Lynne Spears admits she was "a bit disappointed" when her youngest daughter got pregnant, but now she's resolved to the idea of becoming a grandmother again - and she thinks 17-year-old Jamie Lynn will make a great mom.

As for Britney Spears, Lynne is trying to stay just as positive.

"I pray for Britney every day to be a better mother," Lynne adds.

"She's gone through a lot of trauma, but she seems to be coming out of it - and it's showing in her relationship with [Sean Preston and Jayden James]. They're really bonding."

Those few hours together since December must have been so special.

As we know, Jamie Lynn Spears is now engaged to baby-daddy Casey Aldridge.

Well, that's all well and good - but her mom, Lynne Spears (whose penchant for digging for gold amongst her famous daughters would make Heather Mills so proud) been busy planning their prenuptial agreement.

According to In Touch Weekly, this does not seem like a big deal to Jamie Lynn Spears, but Lynne insists her daughters' fortunes must be protected.

"The contract is already drawn up and ready to go," a close source told In Touch. "Lynne's not sure marriage is a good idea, but she'll go along with that if that's what Jamie Lynn wants. As long as [Casey Aldridge] signs a contract."

Casey Aldridge and Jamie Lynn Spears, who are expecting their first child, are also engaged - and this isn't the first time Lynne Spears has insisted on a prenup.

Her oldest daughter, Britney Spears, tied the knot with old friend Jason Alexander in 2003 without one, but luckily, that was annulled 55 hours later.

So when Britney was set to marry Kevin Federline in 2004, Lynne made sure it would not happen again. Lynne rushed in with the paperwork before the two legally wed and probably saved Britney tens of millions in the process.

Of course, she's still paying over a million in legal fees.

Britney Spears joined her mom Lynne and her father Jamie for a bite to eat at the Paradise Cove Beach Café in Malibu, California, last night.

Lynne â€" who recently visited the set of CBS' How I Met Your Mother, which will mark Britney's return to TV next week â€" threw a coat over her eldest daughter's head to shield her from the swarm of celebrity news photographers.

Monday, Lynne (who is divorced from Jamie Spears) spent time with her two little grandchildren, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 17 months.

Meanwhile, the scourge of Britney Spears' life (and all of humanity), Sam Lutfi, filed papers objecting to the California Superior Court commissioner who ordered him to stay away from Britney Spears for another month.

Sam Lutfi, Britney Spears' Friend

The document, which was signed by Lutfi, did not reach the courtroom until after Monday's hearing, during which the restraining order barring Sam Lutfi from coming within 250 yards of Britney Spears was extended until April 16.

Sam Lutfi, who Lynne Spears accuses of demanding money from the singer and drugging her, is free to appear in court on April 16 to petition for a new judge.

The bad seed has two previous restraining orders against him for violent verbal and physical attacks for incidents not related to Britney Spears.

Britney Spears' mom, Lynne Spears, has been praising her ex-husband, Jamie Spears, who has taken control of their troubled daughter's affairs.

"Jamie had to change his whole routine. Lynne sings his praises. He has been such a rock. He has stepped up to the plate," a family friend says.

"Jamie has gathered a team of reputable people who are around [Britney Spears] now. She's not well, but for the first time in a long time she has people around her who really care about her."

As for how Lynne Spears is coping with having her daughter in and out of the hospital, the friend says, "She's up and down. It's a roller coaster ride as a mother."

On top of that, Lynne also has pregnant 16-year-old daughter, Jamie Lynn Spears, who lives in Kentwood, La., to take care of. Lynne, who has been shuttling between Louisiana and California, is currently back in Los Angeles.

Lynne and Jamie Spears also have a 30-year-old son, Bryan Spears.

"She has to spend time between L.A. and Kentwood. As a mother she feels needed in both places. She's doing whatever she can to help both girls. She's got that maternal instinct, and it's in high gear."

One big positive lately? The ostracizing of Sam Lutfi.

Another positive step for the family has been Britney Spears' recent visits with her sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.

"Lynne talked to Jamie, and he said it was a good visit," says the source. "[Britney] slipped into that motherly mode. They picked up right where they left off. She still has a long way to go [to get better], but that's what we hope and pray for ... Lynne and Jamie want their child to be whole again."

It's tough having a mentally ill daughter in L.A. and a second, pregnant one at home in Louisiana, but such is life for Lynne Spears these days.

Here's Lynne Spears getting ready to fly back to her hometown of Kentwood, La., where she's been taking care of her youngest child ever since Casey Aldridge got Jamie Lynn Spears pregnant at the age of 16.

Looks like she's having some trouble with her suitcase, but at least Lynne is lookin' good these days. Who would know she's in her 50s?

Just don't steal anything from the gift shop, Lynne. Even if your flight is late and you're real bored. That did not work out so well for Bai Ling, after all.

The mother of Jamie Lynn and Britney Spears will be laying low in the coming months, we're guessing, as JLS begins to show that baby bump.

Hey, if you've got blood-sucking leeches like Sam Lutfi trying to control your daughter's money and mind, Adnan Ghalib must seem downright normal.

After her release from UCLA and its psychiatric ward, Britney Spears spent her first night at home with her mom, dad and Adnan.

Word has it that it was civil and everyone got along nicely.

"From what I was told, everything was very civilized," a source close to Adnan Ghalib, a celebrity photographer, told People.

After Spears' unexpected release from UCLA Wednesday, "Britney called Adnan to meet her at the Beverly Hills Hotel. He had been talking with [parents] Lynne and Jamie Spears for the past few days," says the source.

Britney and Adnan had a meeting with lawyer Adam Streisand, who announced Thursday that he is off the case. The pair then met up with Jamie and Lynne.

Adnan Ghalib also confirmed in a posting on his celebrity photo agency's website (FinalPixx.com) that he had been in contact with her parents.

"As the day unraveled, they have all agreed to get Britney safely back to her home so she can get the medical care and love that she deserves," says a posting on FinalPixx.com about Spears and Ghalib.

"After spending most of the evening with The Spears [family] ... Adnan left and went back home at 2:30 a.m. to give the family some alone time."

Adnan Ghalib, who began seeing Britney in December, is married to AzLynn Berry, but has been separated for a year and was just served with divorce papers.

Lynne Spears left her daughter's home just after midnight Thursday, while Jamie Spears remained there through Thursday morning.

The folks were reportedly frustrated by Britney's early release and their lack of ability to enforce the court-ordered conservatorship that lets them control her medical treatment, as well as her legal and financial decisions.

In a six-page declaration filed by Lynne Spears in a restraining order against Sam Lutfi, she says she and the singer's father, Jamie Spears, went to Britney's  home on January 28 after hearing that Britney "was crying" after a fight with Lutfi.

She called Sam Lutfi "the man who has inserted himself into my daughter's life," (no, she doesn't mean it it that way, guys) as well as her home and finances.

You will not believe some of the $h!t Lynne Spears says about Sam Lutfi - who is now not allowed contact with Britney Spears as per a court order - in her account of that crazy night. We can't even begin to sum it up.

So here are accusations in Lynne Spears' own words:

"Sam told Britney that she was an unfit mother, a piece of trash, a whore. That she cares more about [Adnan Ghalib], her current boyfriend, than she cares about her kids, and that she does not deserve her own kids."

"Sam told Jackie [a family friend] and me that he grinds up Britney's pills, which were on the counter and included Risperdon and Seroquel."

Lynne Spears isn't exactly buddy-buddy with Britney's pal Sam Lutfi.

"Sam told us that he puts them in her food and that was the reason she has been quiet for the last three days (Britney, who has insomnia, had been sleeping). He told us that the doctor who is treating her is not trying to get her into a sleep-induced coma so that they could give her drugs to heal her brain."

"Sam then encouraged us to sit down on a sofa and to do tequila shots. Jackie said we did not want to. Britney seemed to follow our lead."

"Sam then gets some wine out and said, ‘Let's all do a toast.' Britney said that she didn't want to; she also wanted a pretty glass. Sam found a glass with a stem and poured the wine for Britney when we were not looking. Britney refused to drink her wine and asked to drink mine."

Britney Spears' seedy manager / friend, Sam Lutfi, says the singer's mental problems stem from her parents, Lynne and Jamie Spears.

"Oh boy, her family is crazy!" Lutfi told Us Weekly in an interview.

"It's funny, because that's what the doctors say when they meet the family," he added. "They always come back and say, ‘You know, [her problems] are inherited, right?' It's just so sad. It's shared equally from both of her parents."

When asked if Britney Spears trusts "a thing her parents say," Lutfi replied, "Not a g----n thing."

On Friday, Spears' parents went to L.A. Superior Court to seeking legal control of their daughter's finances and medical treatments.

Their requests were granted as a co-conservatorship was set up in their names, while Sam Lutfi was hit with a restraining order.

Now His Shadiness is speaking out, sharing his take on last week, when Britney's parents rushed to her assistance after her latest meltdown. 

Sam Lutfi is speaking out against Britney Spears' parents. 

When the singer heard Lynne arrived Sunday night, Sam Lutfi said Britney asked him, ‘Is my mom really here?' I said, ‘Yeah, she's here.' And she's like, ‘Oh great, you know they're up to something.'

"They show up to the house like hillbillies, texting me," Lutfi said.

"I find out that they're outside, and they go, ‘You better let me in the gate, you ass.' So I go, to Britney, ‘Your parents are here, let them come in and yell at you and scream at you. If anything else goes on, I'll throw you in my car and take you out of here.' She said, ‘OK, fine, baby.'

"I let them in. Instead of going to see how Britney is, they come bouncing through the doors. They scream at me, ‘Why the f--k are you talking to Barbara Walters?' I swear to God that's all they were saying.

"The dad pushed me in the chest and said, ‘Get the fâ€"k out of here.'

"The dad gave up and then the mom tried to talk to her, but Lynne was like, ‘I gotta get my beauty sleep, I gotta get my nails done, I gotta do my hair.' It was just so sick. We made the mom stay."

Sam Lutfi said the singer suffers from "mixed state bipolar" and has had it for "roughly five years." A person suffering from "mixed state bipolar" experiences symptoms of mania and depression at the same time.

He said he has told the singer, "‘Britney, do you see why people think you are crazy? Look at your mother and look at your father.'"
