Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Jamie Lynn Spears will be starring in her own TLC special and this will be her first ever show since the Nickelodeon series “Zoey 101” ended.
According to new reports, the show will be for an hour and it will show how she has been since her show ended in 2008 following her announcement of being pregnant when she was only 16 years old.
The younger sister of Britney Spears will star in the special entitled “Jamie Lynn Spears: When the Lights Go Out.” The show will let the viewers know about how the media reaction about her teenage pregnancy affected her and will also show how she found her way out of the dark moments in her life to be a country music artist.
In the trailer for the special, Jamie was heard saying, “I’m not just a child star, and I’m not just someone’s sister, and I’m not just a teen mom. For the first time, this is the real story.”
Also heard in the trailer were the comments made by the media regarding her career and that being pregnant at such a young age was something she should have thought of. She was also heard saying,
“The child star who got pregnant. A lot of horrible, nasty things were said.” Jamie was seen crying in the trailer and her parents said that the following years after she gave birth was not her best years.
Jamie’s child, now seven, was also featured in some parts of the trailer. Her husband James Watson, who is not the father of her daughter, was not seen in the trailer but he is said to also be shown in the special.
The special will also show Jamie’s performance at the Grand Ole Opry where Britney introduced her to the audience.
This is not the first time that Jamie talked about her teenage pregnancy. Back in 2012, she was interviewed by Glamour and she shared, “Like many young girls…I was really scared to go to the doctor. And I was on a Nickelodeon show, and it [felt] especially embarrassing to ask someone to put me on birth control.”
“Jamie Lynn Spears: When the Lights Go Out” will air next month on June 26 at 10 P.M.
