It’s Funny What Interests People

Out of all the stuff I have posted the last couple of days, I put up a pretty short one this morning before I left for work linking to this CNN report about Jamie Lynn Spears being pregnant.


I’ve had more hits today for that than anything else this week. So what, she’s pregnant. I like what Below the Beltway had to say though,

‘Because, ya know, we can’t figure out how this happened’.


That was in response to this:

NEW YORK (AP) — Another Spears baby is reportedly on the way — and it’s not Britney’s.

Jamie Lynn Spears, the 16-year-old “Zoey 101? star and sister of Britney, told OK! magazine that she’s pregnant and that the father is her boyfriend, Casey Aldridge.

“It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected,” she said. “I was in complete and total shock and so was he.”

Like I said this morning, put it in a sock.

Updated 10:55 PM – Apparently the paparazzi caught Britney Spears unawares at which point in time she denied that her sister was pregnant. What a way to find out that your 16-year-old sister is pregnant.

Jamie Lynn Spears told OK! Magazine that she plans on raising the baby at home in Louisiana away from the bright lights of show business. Somehow I don’t guess there is any place in Zoey 101’s world for a baby anyhow.

BlondeBlogger sees it a bit from Spear’s point of view. I was a pretty crappy teenager myself and never used condoms but that certainly doesn’t mean I will even remotely seem to condone it. My son made it to the Marine Corps a virgin and we are trying to instill the same values in our girls as we did with him. The fact is that if either of them make it to 18 a virgin I will consider myself lucky, but either way they are damn sure going to use protection for the simple fact that pregnancy aside, there is some mean shit to be caught out there. It’s not like it was 20+ years ago.

    Let’s start with the shocker of the day for me. Mississippi State BEAT Alabama by a score of 17-12. ‘Bama was ranked #22 and was expected to win this game handily. In the past the Bulldogs usually had one upset win a season and I thought they used …

  18. It will be interesting to see what Nickelodeon does about her show. I can’t see them trying to hide the pregnancy behind large handbags and houseplants!

  19. Part of the CNN article I quoted earlier stated that they had already filmed the fourth season. I don’t know if the writer’s strike affects Nick anyway, but if so that would probably put a bigger crimp in the schedule than her pregnancy
