Lynne Spears to Write Parenting Book

Posted on October 26, 2007

Through the Storm by Lynne Spears
There's a new celebrity memoir coming out. Britney Spears' mother, Lynne Spears, is reportedly writing a book on parenting. Yes, that's right. Parenting.
Lynne Spears has inked a deal to pen a memoir focusing on her role as showbiz family matriarch, Curt Harding, a spokesman for the Christian book publisher Thomas Nelson Inc., told E! News Friday.

Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World has been marked for a May 11, 2008-Mother's Day-release.

Harding said that he has not yet seen a manuscript so he can't say how deeply the book will delve into the Spears' private lives or, more important, whether Lynne's viewpoint will encompass the current state of her daughter's career and high-profile lifestyle, both of which are obviously attracting a different caliber of headlines than they were a few years ago.

We hope the publisher knows to hold the presses until the last possible moment, because the Britney saga seems to change from minute to minute. Why, only today Britney replied to a reporter from Extra TV when he asked how she thought the custody proceedings were going: "Eat it, lick it, snort it, f--- it!"

Words to live by, as any good parent will tell you.

Update: The title of the book is Through the Storm. We like that much better than Pop Culture Mom. We added the cover above.
