Is Jamie Lynn Spears the Next Britney?

Apparently, the apple doesn’t fall far from the, uh, bigger apple.

The New York Post says that insiders close to Jamie Lynn Spears—who popped out her first young’un, Maddie Briann Aldridge, last month at the tender age of 17—could be following in Britney’s chaotic footsteps.

“She only has Diet Coke in the house. How redneck is that?” the newspaper’s source reveals.

Uh, dude? She just had a baby, and is probably trying to drop her pregnancy pounds. You think that’s going to happen if she fills her fridge with regular Coke?

Either way, it’s nice to know there’ll be plenty of car-crashing, head-shaving, suicide-attempting zaniness to look forward to in the years to come.

In these uncertain times, some things can still be depended on.
