YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Yes, children, it really has come to this. Buckle your safety belts and strap on your wind goggles while Your Mama dons our cloak of celebrity real estate shame because we really are going to discuss the home of a formerly quasi famous younger sister of a pop super star.
From 2005 to 2008, Jamie Lynn Spears–that would be Britney’s baby sister y’all–had a budding career starring on a boob-toob program for teens and tweens called Zoey 101. In late 2007, at the newly bloomed age of 16, the wee lassie turned up preggers. Shortly after the world learned there was a bun in Miss Spears’s teenage oven, she severed ties with Nickolodeon. Or they severed them with her. Or it was mutual. Or it was whatever, who cares?
It wasn’t long before she and her boy-beau cum baby daddy Casey Aldridge did the inevitable, they got engaged and went hunting for a house where they could bring up baby. In the early summer of 2008 they settled on a rural 5+ acre spread in Liberty, MS, not far from Baby Daddy’s parent’s and just up the road a piece from Grandma Spears’ estate in Kentwood, LA.
But alas, as so often happens with teenage parents, in March of 2009 gossip glossy and tabloid readers around the world learned that Teen Mom and Baby Daddy went splitsville but remained shacked up together for the sake of their toddler tot. Not surprisingly, in February of 2010 it was reported that Miss Spears and her baby moved out of the former couple’s crib in Liberty and back to Grandma Spear’s place in Kentwood. It was also reported that the barely legal single mommy is now dating a 28 year old bidnessman named James Watson, which is just ugly and dee-pressing on so many levels. But that’s another cradle robbing beef for another day.
Now, thanks to a covert communique from Loozeeanna Lenny Your Mama has learned Miss Spears has put her former home and love nest in Liberty on the market with an asking price of $250,000.
A long, bucolic driveway passes through a thick stand of trees and leads from the over-grown front gates to the house where a wide front porch spans the width of the house and looks out over the featureless and landscaping free front yard. Listing information for Miss Spears’ gated spread indicates the 2,528 square foot Acadian style house has 3 bedrooms–4 if you count the room tucked up in the eaves of the attic–and 2.5 poopers.
The red front door opens directly into the main living space, a wood beamed, open plan sort of thing the stretches from the front to the back of the house. The living area has hardwood floors, 8-paned windows that dip all the way to the floor and a fireplace. The kitchen/dining area has beige tile floors, large windows that look out towards the barns in the back yard, custom cabinetry, granite counter tops and what appears to be the same color red walls as in the master pooper.
About as much care and attention as went into the landscaping in front yard went into doing up the backyard where there is a shop/office with a half pooper attached to the house by a breeze way as well as a corral or two and a couple of additional outbuildings including a 40′ x 40′ horse barn and a 20′ x 30′ workshop.
What the future holds for these two teenagers who could not keep it in their pants or wear a damn condom is anyone’s guess but as our hard and loose living bestie Fiona Trambeau from Frisco frequently says, “It can only end in tears, it can only end in tears.”
