Britney Spears‘ mama Lynne Spears appeared on Today this morning and chit chatted with Meredith Viera and Al Roker about how her family went from “there to here.” There being when daughters Britney and Jamie-Lynn were young, fresh-faced starlets and here being a distraught, disturbed mother-of two shaving her head and a pregnant teenager, respectively. Lynne blames the turmoil surrounding Britney’s life on her absence, but claims it wasn’t possible to be there. “Did I want to be there? Of course!” she said. “Was it feasible? It wasn’t.” Lynne equates sending Britney off into the shark infested waters of celebritydom as just like when, “Our kids go to college…Britney set off two years earlier to be a star.” At one time, Lynne claims when Britney wasn’t speaking to her, she considered resorting to scaling the fence of her gated community.
Lynne warned her girlfriends, “If you see my behind going over that wall into the Summit [Britney’s house], it’s me because it’s my last drastic measure.” Around the same time, then 16-year-old Jamie-Lynn gave her mom some shocking news in a way the high school junior felt was best- by passing a note. “It said she was pregnant and everything was going to be OK. She was going to raise it.” After the chaotic 2007 the Spears family endured, Lynne claims her relationship with her daughters is on the up and up, saying “We’re through the storm and we’re looking at the sunshine right now.”[Source:Us]
