In an interview with People about her new book Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, Lynne Spears seems to be oblivious to the fact that Britney is a burden of the state and can’t see her kids without a SWAT team handy. How can I tell? She’d do this whole trainwreck again in a heartbeat:
“I think you have to let them follow their dreams,” she says in a new interview with PEOPLE. “I think it would be worse in the end if you didn’t.”
But she does express regrets about not listening to her “gut” at times: “Was I the perfect mom? No.”
Fortunately, one person thinks Lynne is the perfect mom: Her teenage daughter Jamie Lynn. You know, the one who had a baby at 17 to a redneck:
She says Britney and Bryan have yet to read it, but “Jamie Lynn loved the book. I started to cry because I told her, ‘I wanted so much for you to like it.’ And she got up and kissed me on the cheek and said, ‘Mama, thank you so much.’”
JAMIE LYNN: Mama, did y’all mean it when you said you gonna make a meal-yen dollahs off this here book?
LYNNE: I did, princess.
JAMIE LYNN: *runs off* Whoopee! I’m gonna have anotha bay-bee!
LYNNE: No, wait, Jamie Lynn. Don’t -
JAMIE LYNN: *hollers from her room* Too late!
