agreed with #3 !

Seriously I would break the kontakt with my mom or dad if they wrote about my privacy life like that!

I hate britneys mom, what an *******! I hope britney breaks the kontakt with that *****.

# 7

Yeah i agree.
Just because their CHILD is famous doesn’t make the parent(s) famous.

thats a shame that her mother is going to do that to her! I have never viewed her to have that type of upbringing and this will make people see her differently. People love to see her as he character and to believe she nails this role b/c she was brought up that way! She is a FANTASTIC ACTRESS BETTER THAT SERENA (over acts looks fake) but no matter what she over came her white trash upbringing and she is a fantastic actress!!! Her mother was and always will be TRASH for doing this to her! BOYCOTT THE BOOK IF YOU LOVE HER!!!!! WHY FEED HER MOTHERS DRUG HABBIT?????

If I were Leighton and my mother tried to cash in on my fame like that, I’m pretty sure I would cut her out of my life. What is it with these famous people’s mothers? Do they all go psycho and jealous as soon as their daughters become famous? There was Jennifer Aniston’s mother, Lynne Spears and now this!! It’s disgusting.

Thats horrible, Leighton is the one whose image is to be tarnished by her mothers airing out the family laundry. Some people need to think.
I however do still adore Leighton.

That’s a really awkward picture of her.

But her mom still needs to STFD.

NAY ! agreed with #3 too.

this is so wrong….for her mothers should have wanted to protect her not to damage her….
but i love leigh no matter what,..

according to the original article, leighton’s fine with the book being published but i have no idea how true this is. however i think it’s pretty ridiculous and ballsy of her mother to announce the book at this specific moment. even if she has been writing it for a few years now, it’s obvious that she is trying to use the current media attention her daughter is getting to up the prospective sales. at least wait a little longer until your daughters name weighs more than ‘blair waldorf’.

@love her: although i am immensely against this book being published, i think it ******* sucks how much you assume about leighton’s upbringing and her mother. did her parents make mistakes when they were younger? clearly. did she sit off the time in prison? yes, we know this now. but is she still involved in illegal activities? **** if we know. from all that i’ve heard of leighton growing up, she was nowhere near white trash, maybe slightly lower class, but that’s about was “trashy” as it gets. connie and doug meester tried to provide their children with a good surrounding to grow up in, so for you to just assume that leighton grew up in a trailer while her mum was out dealing drugs or whatever the **** you picture white trash to be, makes you just as bad as the people judging leighton by her mother’s doing.

That would be an interesting book even if her daughter wasn’t famous. It will probably be more about her own journey anyway, so Leighton could maintain her privacy.

i tried to ignore this *****, but actually she’s damn sexy

sewing machines.. remarcable!

Megan #11, pretty much says it all

That’s a really bad pic of her.


The mother is serious trash to attempt to cash in on her daughter.

The irony, no one will buy the book anyway, but the damage is already done. Leighton’s reputation is forevor altred. Good work mom.

As for Leighton, of course she released a statement of indifference. What choice is there?

Wow. Her mother should be ashamed of herself!
If I were Leighton, I would be furious!
Family life is PERSONAL. The fact that her mother would cash in on her family life is disgusting.
:( Poor Leighton.

Leighton rocks, as an actress and as a girl.
I don’t care about what her mother will write in the book.

i guess she just wants to get her 5 min of fame!

luv leighton though :)

This doesn’t change my view on Leighton. Your parents wrongdoings do not change your personality and I think Leighton grew up just fine. She seems like she’s such a sweet person and I’d love to meet her one day.

I don’t think I would buy the book.
