Star of teen nick's Zoey 101, Jamie Lynn Spears who was announced 12 weeks pregnant in December 2007 had launched a teen maternity line. The star has called her line "PREGteen by Jamie."
According to Spears, "Jamie's hot new line will be sold at JCpenny in the juniors section." This has erupted further controversy for Spears after she verbally stated that pregnancy for youngsters is better and more fun. The line includes skimpy skirts, strappy dresses and suggestive tee-shirts.
In an at-home-interview Jamie stated: "I'm so happy for me and my boyfriend, and no, I don't regret this...its great!"
Nickolodean was not so happy with Spears' decision. "She's stating that it's a good thing...but it's not." Nickolodean believes that if Jamie didn't want a goodie-two rep because of Zoey 101. she shouldn't have hit the big screen anyway.
Many little girls and young teen fans have been very disappointed by the move. Upon hearing about "PREGteen by Jamie" many parents have stopped their kids from watching Zoey 101, fearing it has a bad influence.
One stay home Louisiana mother, who had known Lynn Spears during her teens, stated "I can't believe that Lynn would let this happen, sorry to say, she's a bad role model for her kids." Another mother said "I don't think its right for her to encourage this behavior, I thought that Jamie and Britney were to separate people, but in behavior they're just the same. My daughter will not watch anything involving that wretched girl!"
Many fans and mothers were disappointed. In a survey, many moms and fans said that they thought that spears was regretful, but upon creating a line that encourages this kind of stuff she definitely doesn't regret anything.
Spears and her mother had went to visit Britney in rehab and upon hearing her rise to fame because of her line Britney stuttered saying "I-I-I'm so-o-o- pro-oud of y-y-ou" obviously that's no suprise.
"PREGteen by Jamie" will be sold at JCpenny only, prices ranging from $12.95 and $40.00
