Celebrity Pregnancies = Big Bucks

Celebrity Pregnancies = Big Bucks

The New York Times has a great piece on celebrity pregnancies and how it helped OK! magazine sell a record number of copies for it’s “Jamie Lynn Spears: I’m Pregnant” cover.

The exclusive Jamie Lynn issue sold nearly two million, roughly twice the usual number. The previous record issue was headlined “Britney’s Meltdown,” which sold 1.2 million copies.

“This is a family whose trajectory appears to be moving in the wrong direction, and they might actually not know where their next paycheck is coming from,” said Janice Min, the head honcho of US Weekly. “Money is money. [Jamie Lynn's pregnancy is the] ultimate example of one of these celebrities deciding ‘I’m tired of somebody else making money off of me, I’m going to make money off my own news.’”

# 8

She’ll be a good mommy.

The reason why it sold well was that it was an exclusive and it was TRUTH and not the usual made up tabloid stories. People ant the TRUTH!

I think it’s disgusting that they sold her pregnancy, they should have shut their mouths. It’s just shows how greedy and desperate Moma Sprears is and a clue as to whats really wrong with Britney.
This family is disgusting and I have a feeling that the selling of their babies is not the worst of it. How can she be a good parent? look at Britney Married, then have two kids which was a better start just to turn out like she did.
What is Jamie Lynn going to do when the baby is here, she will be without a man if they can’t keep paying Casey to hang around? because It seems the Spears can’t thrive without men attached to their hips.
Jamie Lynn is young she is going to want to hit the clubs and party like Britney. I just can’t believe better days are comming, she is just to young.

i heard on the news she was pregnant i wach her shows Zoey 101 sometimes i love it its just she beginging to be naughty like her sister Britney Spears!!

Lynn Spears has already shown she has no morals by selling the story so she can get money. So tell me again who is going to help raise the baby. I think Mr. Jamie Spears has better moral out of all of them.

Without words

Very Sad :(

I feel it’s the start of something bad. Nick should cancell it now.
I don’t allow my kids (10 & 12) to watch it any more. I’m surprise they don’t object. They know what’s going on and don’t really care to watch. I think it’s because so much else is out that they just tune into the other programs. Nick should put on cartoons or some other programs.

The boyfriend of it is a beast square
Who gave orders not to use condoms
she is very young to have a baby
she ruined her life
That neither the life of Britney
Believe I am a psychologist from brazil

aqule merda
parece um viadinho tentando arrumar um emprego de gigolo
(im Brazil)engravidando todas quando de na telha
não é assim
eu so to dizendo
ou essa familia toma geito
ou eu paro de comprar produtos dessa familia
isso serve pra voce Britney

Her father reportedly left Christmas dinner early because he was so disgusted with Lynn for selling the story. He never took money from either daughter and works for a living as a chef and doesn’t mooch off his children and pimp them.

I agree it is awful the ‘mother’ exploited and profited off something like this. One day JL will see her mother for what she is. I think the worst part of it is OK has exclusive rights to the first pics of the baby!!! They are glorifying and romanticizing teen pregnancy for goodness sake! That’s sick.

Janice Min needs to SHUTUP, her magazine is TRASHY and full of lies, also she paid BIG BUCKS for pics of Brangelina on a African Beach.

SO many celebs have sued US weekly

oow man, i cant believe , jamie you made a big mistake :o
dont go for the same way of your sister ! :/
