The Spears family

From the Department of Ironic punishment:
A book about parenting by Britney Spears's mother has been delayed indefinitely, her publisher said.

Lynne Spears's memoir was put on hold last week, Lindsey Nobles, a spokeswoman for Christian book publisher Thomas Nelson Inc, said. She declined to comment on whether the delay was connected to the revelation that Spears's 16-year-old daughter, Jamie Lynn, is pregnant.

"I can tell you that we are standing behind Lynne and supporting her decision to be with her family at this time," Nobles said.

'Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World was initially scheduled for release May 11, Mother's Day in the United States.

Spears, the mother of three children with ex-husband Jamie Spears, had been working with a Michigan-based freelancer since March on the memoir chronicling her experiences raising a family in the public eye.

Jamie Lynn Spears, star of Nickelodeon's Zoey 101 and sister of Britney, told OK! magazine in its new issue that she is expecting her first child and the father is boyfriend Casey Aldridge.

Nobles and representatives for Britney Spears said they did not know how Lynne Spears could be reached for comment about the status of her book.
I don't know what's worse - the fact that Lynne Spears could actually write a book about parenting... or the fact that it was going to be released by a Christian publishing company.
