Jamie Lynn Spears sent Bristol Palin pink burpcloths (update: not true)


Those blabbermouths at Petit Tresor are getting press again by revealing maybe-fake celebrity purchases at their overpriced baby boutique. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes sent the LA store a cease and desist in May for telling Life & Style that they’d blown over $350k on baby goods for Suri. The Holmes-Cruise’s lawyers said it just wasn’t true and that it violated their confidentiality to even reveal they’d shopped there. The letter read in part “We also understand that you have informed other tabloids that our clients have purchased various items at your stores that they have not in fact purchased, and that they have shopped there at times that they have not.”

So take this latest news as either true and questionable on Jamie Lynn’s part or rather desperate on Petit Tresor’s part. Supposedly Jamie Lynn Spears, herself a famous young mother at 17, sent her latest teen pregnant tabloid replacement, Bristol Palin, also 17, pink burp cloths from the boutique. Does Jamie Lynn know that Bristol is having a girl? It seems more prudent to send blue stuff if the baby’s sex is unknown since Bristol has a little five month-old brother. Bristol is five months pregnant and due in December, so she could know the sex of the baby already. If this story is true, and that’s a giant IF in bright yellow sans serif, then maybe Jamie Lynn knows something the rest of the world doesn’t:

If there’s one person who gets a pregnant teen, it’s Jamie Lynn Spears.

Britney Spears’ little sis is reaching out to Bristol Palin, the 17-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin, John McCain’s vice presidential pick.

A source close to the Beverly Hills baby store Petit Tresor tells CelebTV.com exclusively that a gift from Plain Mary was sent to Bristol Palin on behalf of Jamie Lynn Spears.

An insider says it was actually Lynne Spears, Jamie Lynn’s mom, who called about the gift, and requested the gift come from her daughter.

“It was ordered by phone, and they asked what could be done for under $100. They spent $60 on pink burpcloths,” said the source.

Burpcloths should not cost $60. I was kind of flabbergasted at that price, but then I looked up burpcloths on Target.com and see that even at Target a nice set can run up to 1/2 that cost, which sounds about right if you’re looking at the cost of regular vs. designer goods.

How would Jamie Lynn Spears know Bristol Palin anyway? Could she maybe feel sorry for her because she knows what it’s like to be in the spotlight as a pregnant teen? Surely some pink burpcloths aren’t the way to express that kind of remote solidarity. She might not even be able to use them for all we know.

Update: According to Jamie Lynn’s rep, this story is not true at all. That was lame, Petit Tresor, although you did get a lot of press out of it.

    And I shall call this scandal “Juno-Lynn Palin” :roll:

  2. Bodhi says:

    :lol: Kaiser

    I guess it makes sences in the tabloid sort of way. But I SERIOUSLY doubt that JL pays a lick of attention to politics & what is going on

  3. Kaiser says:

    @Bodhi – Yep. JL probably just focused on the baby and the douchey baby-daddy. Her own, not Bristol’s.

  4. silentA says:

    Kaiser,
    You just made my day.
    Wonderful.

  5. Ron says:

    Jami should have sent her a subsciption to Cosmo, the girl obviously needs some sex ed since her Mom hasn’t done such a great job with that.

  6. l says:

    Petit Tresor also claimed Jamie Lynn shopped there and bought blue things for the boy she was going to have. Oops. And that time they said Jessica Alba shopped there and bought blue things for the boy she was going to have. Oops. They also “leaked” that Britney Spears’s first child would be a girl. Again, OOPS.

    That store, seriously, has a PR dept that gets press by making up these fake stories about any pregnant celeb in the news. Remember when they swore Ashlee and Pete had shopped there getting blue things? And then Ashlee and Pete were like, uh, no.

  7. Diva says:

    Hey Kaiser, lol, just to get the “Alaska” element in there, you should call in Juneau-Lynn Palin?

    :lol:

    Yeah, I made myself laugh… so what? lmao

  8. Bodhi says:

    haha! Thats terrible, but very funny Diva

  9. JaundiceMachine says:

    Nice double team, Kaiser and Diva.

  10. Strawberry In Disguise says:

    She should have used a ‘pink burp cloth’ whe jumping into bed with that creep. Who am I talking about..? Both I guess :D

  11. Syko says:

    Really? People spend that kind of money on burpcloths? Wow!

  12. kate says:

    “burpcloth” may be one of the ickiest words in the english language.

  13. Leo says:

    If that store keeps up with the fake news nonsense, it will be lucky if it gets any more celebrity clients.

  14. CeeJay says:

    Well, this brings the whole sensational story full circle. I find it kind of strange that of all people the Republican Party of America is supporting a 17 year old unwed mother. But, this post isn’t about politics so I’ll let it go.

  15. Diva says:

    That was very distasteful, chaz.

  16. Lauri says:

    @ceejay: as a proud republican, I just wanted to clarify since you asked the question.

    Yes, it is true that republicans generally think that pregnancy is best reserved for adults, especially ones in a marriage or at least stable, long term relationship.

    However, we are not stupid, and we are realistic. Once the deed is done, as in this case, the responsibility is to ensure that the young mother and her baby get the best possible start. Good prenatal care, parenting classes, a supportive, loving family…those are the things we hope for when an underaged minor child becomes pregnant.

    It’s not that we don’t want kids to have fun or that we want to control other people’s sex lives…but we DO want to see children that are brought into the world be given the best possible opportunities to be born into a stable and healthy environment.

    Who could argue with that?

  17. Kaiser says:

    Well played, Diva. :P

    This scandal shall be called Juneau-Lynn Palin.

    If any of you had to walk in these shoes there is no way you would survive. You can talk all you want, but unless you have gone through what these girls are going through you don’t have a leg to stand on. I do agree these situations aren’t ideal but leave them alone. They are owning up and taking care of their responsibilities! Age does not define how good a parent you are +

  19. Vermillion says:

    If any of you had to walk in these shoes there is no way you would survive.

    You mean having a good chunk of money from a hit TV show in one case, and a state governor for a mother in the other? Why, whatever would we do?

    Age does not define how good a parent you are +

    Uh, yeah it does, or at least it is a considerable factor. While I would agree there are bad parents of any age, I cannot seriously accept the pemise that a CHILD can successfully raise another CHILD without help from someone who has done it before.
