Will you be reading Lynne Spears' memoir?

Storm_lDid any of you happen to care see that the cover of Lynne Spears’ memoir was "revealed" on Monday (the book is due out Sept. 16)? The title — Through The Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World — suggests that the Spears matriarch is divulging just about everything that has gone on in her life since Brit Brit first stepped onto the Mickey Mouse Club stage.

But I just find that hard to believe, which is only furthering my intrigue with this so called tell-all. I mean, is she really going to tell us what she thought when Britney shaved her head? Or when Jamie Lynn announced she was preggers? What about when she first met K. Fed? Or if she ever knew about Britney being put on "suicide watch" by many of the gossip bloggers out there?

(Full disclosure: I’m in the middle of reading Tori Spelling’s book Stori Telling at the moment, so if you’re wondering where my desire for more scandal! more juice! and more truth! is coming from, now you know. And on that note: I recommend Donna Martin’s book to all; it’s great!)

What about you, Pop Watchers: Will you pick up Mama Spears’ book when it debuts next month? Or do you think it’s just another desperate attempt for publicity?

    Desperate attempt at publicity??? Do you have any other stupid questions for us this morning??

  • Patricia

    I think I’d rather poke my eyes out than read that. Or read it to know what NOT to do when I become a mother.

  • Nose

    No, no, no.
    Also, it makes me slightly angry that Tori Spelling can get a book deal and people like me have to struggle for years and years to get published.

    I have always been unimpressed with ANY of the Spears. All of these so called talents in the music business have nothing original to offer and have less talent than I think it takes to make it in the industry. Clearly the promoters would rather water down the pool than support real musical genius.

    yuck! she’s raised one of the worst celebrity families in Hollywood…why would I want to read about that? we all know what kind of mother Lynne is…

  • Tate

    Clearly it’s another attempt for publicity. The question that she needs to answer, really, is what was she doing while Britney was so out of control. She’s her fricking MOTHER, people! You step in and do whatever you have to do to protect your kids – no matter what age. Kudos to Brit’s Dad for having backbone. He may have saved her.

    What’s frightening is that there may be people who will read it and “feel” for this amazing woman, a mother who sacrificed so much, through the storm.
    Oh, wait. Didn’t the parents sort of create the storm?

    You know – after I read a book titled “How Not to Play Chess” I in fact played a much better game of chess. I would think Liz Taylor would give excellent advice on marriage by the fact that she has lived so many mistakes she could say what you should not do. Maybe the same can be said for Lynne Spears – if she had the chance with another child would she raise him/her the same as she did Britney or Britney’s sister? In any case she does have some lessons to teach parents of child stars even if they are mostly examples of what not to do.

    Frankie, I’d say “sort of” is a complete understatement. I hold Lynne completely responsible for Brit’s issues. Think back to 1999, if you will. I remember all of these 30+ year old guys sitting around a computer monitor at work. I walked up and saw what they were looking at. It was an extremely underaged Britney, standing next to a beach cruiser, in little pink shorts with “baby” written on the butt, all made up Jon-Benet style, with this “do me” look on her face. These old pervs were going nuts. Lynne let that happen. She obviously encouraged it. She’s a louse…

    I’ll definitely wait for the internet spoilers. I learned my lesson about celebrity memoirs when I read Lance Bass’s snoozer.

  • Catherine

    You’re kidding, right? Why would anybody want to encourage Lynn Spears to keep foisting herself on the world by purchasing her book?

  • Stephanie T.

    A bad parent and a stage mother. That’s her real bio.

  • Snarf

    More like a desperate attempt at a cash grab. With JL basically committing career suicide by getting pregnant at 16, Mother Spears had to think of something fast to keep those cheques rolling in.
