I don’t dislike Jill Zarin. She’s really upset me this season of Real Housewives of New York City with her immature behavior, but she’s I generally think she’s an alright chick. Apparently Lynn Spears, Britney’s mama, thinks the same thing. The two were seen out to dinner in NYC last night and a little birdie (I’m so sure it wasn’t Mrs. Zarin herself) spilled the beans to Fox News about their conversation:
“Jamie Lynn is looking at colleges. Jamie Lynn wants to go to college and Lynn needed some guidance. Jill and Lynn are friends and they end up talking a lot about what their daughters are up to. Jill’s daughter Ally is going away to school and Jill has been involved in the process every step of the way. Jill helped Ally write her application – she was hands on during the process.”
“Lynn knows that Jill helped Ally and she has very little experience in this area. Jill knows all about the applications and follow-up and Lynn needed an idea of what to expect with Jamie Lynn doing it.”
“Jamie Lynn is ready to continue her education. It was difficult being a young mom, but she’s doing it and she’s ready for a new challenge. College would be great for her – she’s very smart. Lynn is so supportive of all of her kids, and she would love to see Jamie Lynn earn a college degree.”
Well, that’s great that Jamie Lynn wants to go to school. Sincerely. And I think that Jill could probably help out Lynn in a lot of ways, as long as she doesn’t go to her for advice on how to mend a broken friendship. MmmMmm! Jill can’t offer any advice about that, can she? (I know you’re reading this, Jill. I saw on the show that you get Google Alerts for your name. I hope you know that you’ve handled things with Bethenny all wrong and you really just need to get over yourself. I’m saying that as a fan. I love Bobby, BTW. Great man.)
Two guesses: it’s America’s favorite unwed teen mother that doesn’t have an asshat for a mom … oh, wait. Sorry, leading question — my bad!
Happy Birthday, Jamie Lynn Spears!
America’s first teen-pregnancy-Disney-princess turns a ripe, old nineteen today. I checked in to see if anything new was happening with the lovely Miss Spears, but the latest headlines were from two weeks ago when it looked like she might move on in with big sis, Britney. Guess that didn’t pan out all too well — and good for you, kid, good for you.
What’s the difference between Jesus and Jamie Lynn Spears? One of them had a career that was resurrected!
There was a lot of speculation about Jamie Lynn Spears’ ability to parent when the news first broke that she was pregnant. Not only was she a young teen, but she was Britney Spears’ sister. Neither of those things exactly scream “parent potential”. However, I am pleased to report after seeing these photos that Jamie Lynn has managed to keep her daughter Maddie alive. And they both look good! It seems like Jamie Lynn has adjusted well to life as a semi-normal Southern girl.
Jamie Lynn Spear’s is dating a new dude and the difference in their ages is almost as old as she was when she had her baby: 10 years.
After breaking it off with babydaddy Aldridge in December, she’s moved on to the 28 year old owner of a “communications company” from her hometown– which sounds grandiose, but could just mean he owns a store that sells cell phone accessories in the strip mall next to the Captain Video & Tanning.
The guy is only 28, but I keep forgetting that she’s only 18. That’s a huuuuuuge difference in maturity levels, but I can’t knock it completely– my own parents were 27 and 18 when they got hitched and had my sister (in that order, but just barely.)
My beautiful and amazing friend Ranae just posted this video on my Facebook page and I laughed so hard it hurt. Then I watched it again and laughed some more. I still can’t stop smiling. From what I can tell, this is an old-school episode of Nickelodeon’s All That — with Jamie-Lynn Spears, of course — that guest-starred Britney Spears. And this bit is really, really funny! Jamie-Lynn’s a talented little comedian. Too bad she went and got her ass knocked up. Seriously, though, this is really fantastic, and I had to share it with all of you. The good ole days!!! I wish we could still be so innocent …
Kelly reported this weekend that Jamie-Lynn Spears’ boyfriend (and baby daddy) Casey Aldridge was in the hospital after a serious car accident in Louisiana. Casey’s been charged with careless operation of a motor vehicle (a misdemeanor). TMZ has more info about the accident, and it’s all a little fishy:
Cops tell us while Casey was heading north on the 606 in Louisiana early this morning, he swerved off the right side of the road and into a ditch, then over-corrected his turn back onto the pavement, causing the car to flip. During the flip, 3 people — including Casey — were ejected from the car.
The two others who were ejected refused medical treatment at the scene — and as we previously reported, Casey was taken to the Riverside Medical Center in Ferriday, La. due to what cops called “moderate injuries.”
As for whether alcohol was a factor, cops tell us they didn’t speak to Casey for nearly four hours after the crash — due to his hospitalization — and when they did, they found no reason to suspect he had been drinking.
Casey was charged with careless operation of a motor vehicle — a misdemeanor — and is currently recovering from his injuries at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Miss.
Um … what the hell went on over there? Why was Casey swerving all over the road? Why were these people not wearing their seatbelts? Why did two of them refuse medical treatment at the scene???
