    Default Bonnie Fuller: Lynne & Jamie Spears - stop 'pimping out' your daughters now!

    Advice to Jamie and Lynne Spears — stop treating your celebrity daughters like cash registers! Do you think it's a coincidence that one of your girls has had to be committed to the mental ward of a hospital and that the other is 16 and six months pregnant?
    Could that have anything to do with the fact that they've been put to work from the moment they could sing and read a script? Has it occurred to you that they might feel more like bank machines than like precious members of a loving family?
    Now it's true that Britney was adorable and got rave reviews for her recent comeback performance on the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother. Yes, she seemed completely normal and cured and it has miraculously been only 12 weeks since she was strapped to a gurney after holding her son, Jayden James, hostage.
    But that's the point, it has only been a month and a half since she was released from the hospital a second time. And while Brit was sane and smiling on screen, apparently she was a mess off-screen while taping the show. The new issue of Star magazine reports that at one point she stood in a hallway in full hearing of other cast members and screamed on the phone to her younger sister, Jamie Lynn — "You're turning on me like everyone else. First Mama wanted to sleep with Kevin and now you're calling him. And you live in a house I paid for!"
    To me, the words "A house I paid for" are very revealing. I wouldn't be surprised if Britney feels angry about having had to bankroll the Spears family operation for her whole young life and yes, the house her mother and sister live in, in their hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana was paid for out of the proceeds of her tremendous success.
    And now almost the first thing that her "guardian" father, Jamie Spears, does once Britney is well enough to appear in public, without embarrassing herself, is to put her back on her work hamster wheel. "Britney could easily be asking herself 'Does my father want me to get well for me or because he wants me to work?'" points out psychiatrist Dr. Carole Lieberman, author of Bad Boys: Why We Love Them, How to Live With Them, and When to Leave Them.



    Imagine if you felt that your parents loved you only because you were a performer, not a person? You might well think you'd been exploited. You might well rebel against the image they had given you of being America's Little Miss Perfect.
    Psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow, author of Living the Truth, also worries that Britney's current situation — living with a parent (her dad, Jamie Spears) and going to work — is reproducing the exact same childhood situation that could have led to her mental issues. And it doesn't help that Jamie is now being paid $2500 a week from Britney's accounts to be the conservator of her affairs.
    "It's not OK to be her dad and her employee," warns the psychiatrist. Wouldn't it be great for her if he could just be her dad? And how about just letting her work on her psychological issues?
    Now, as for little sister Jamie Lynn, who derailed her promising career and is planning to marry her 18 year-old baby daddy, isn't it interesting that she also found a way to get off the Spears family moolah-making machine, at least for a while. "Both Britney and Jamie Lynn are doing things that get in the way of making money because they are angry that they aren't being loved for themselves," believes Dr. Lieberman. Their antics even managed to successfully squash their mother's ability to publish her own potentially-lucrative parenting book. Somehow, I don't think that is coincidental!
    So I say to Jamie and Lynne Spears, if you really want to prove your love to your daughters, how about trying to nix the reported deal to sell Jamie Lynn's upcoming baby pics for $1 million?
    Why not try to break the pattern of "pimping" the family's children out to make money starting NOW? That might really get through to your girls in a way they would truly appreciate. Bonnie Fuller: Lynne and Jamie Spears — You've Got To Stop "Pimping" Out Your Daughters Now! - Entertainment on The Huffington Post Bonnie Fuller was named executive vice president and chief editorial director of American Media, Inc. in July 2003, where she is charged with overseeing AMI’s 16 weekly, bi-weekly and monthly magazines, including Star magazine, and in April 2006 Fuller published her first book entitled The Joys of Much Too Much: Go for the Big Life.

    Under Fuller’s leadership at AMI, Star successfully re-launched from a tabloid to a glossy, and the magazine’s paid circulation increased to over 1.5 million. Fuller also oversaw the highly successful redesign of Shape’s cover and interior, resulting increased newsstand sales. Most recently, Fuller oversaw the re-launch of Star’s website, starmagazine.com, which averages almost 10 million page views per month.
    Prior to AMI, Fuller was the editor in chief of Us Weekly

    Bonnie Fuller is the editor of US mag and I'd say she should shut the fuck up until she spends more time taking care of her kids than making sure her newsstand sales are high. What a dumb cow.

    OT, but I thought Britney's weave on that show could've been better, but it's still not as bad as it usually is.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

    She used to be the editor of US Weekly (it's now Janice Min); she left US and is now the editor of Star magazine.

    I wonder if Jamie and Lynne have learned anything from this?

    ...

    Actually, never mind. I shouldn't ask for miracles like that.

    She got fired. Bonnie always gets fired. She is one of the most hated bitches in magazine publishing if not the most hated.
