To add more fuel to the teen pregnancy fire surrounding the Palin family, Jamie Lynn Spears thought it would be a nice gesture to send Bristol Palin, Sarah Palin's 17-year-old pregnant daughter, a baby gift with a card reading "hang in there." While I'm not one to judge these girls or their decisions to be young moms, I did think this was a little bizarre — they don't even know each other!
Jamie Lynn is no stranger to public scrutiny, so I have to ask why she'd turn the spotlight on Bristol and back onto herself. I could be overthinking this, but tell me: Do you think this is a situation where a young girl trying to support another young woman in the same position is a good idea? Or do you think her gesture caused more harm than good by bringing more unwanted publicity to her personal life?
Update - Turns out that Lynne Spears has denied any gifts were sent.
