Why is it every time I read about the Spears family I hear “Dueling Banjos”?

Jamie Lynn Spears, the 16-year-old sister of professional train wreck and head shaver Britney, is pregnant.

Yes, pregnant. The star of Nickelodeon’s Zoey 101 has told OK! magazine that she’s expecting a child with her boyfriend, Casey Aldridge.

“It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected,” she said. “I was in complete and total shock and so was he.” When asked by the mag what message this would send to other teens, Jamie Lynn said, “I definitely don’t think it’s something you should do; it’s better to wait. But I can’t be judgmental because it’s a position I put myself in.”

Nickelodeon released a statement that said, “We respect Jamie Lynn’s decision to take responsibility in this sensitive and personal situation. We know this is a very difficult time for her and her family, and our primary concern right now is for Jamie Lynn’s well being.”

This may take the attention off Britney for a bit, but just a bit. After all, Jamie Lynn’s just pregnant…Britney’s plain crazy.
