Lisa Whelchel comes out of hiding to help Jamie Lynn Spears
Jamie Lynn Spears probably has a lot going through her head now that the whole world knows she is pregnant at 16 years old.
Her sister, Britney, probably isn't much support... Brit can't even take care of herself.
Coming to Jamie Lynn's defense -- Blair Warner from the 1980's sitcom "The Facts of Life."
That's right, Lisa Whelchel is speaking out in Jamie Lynn's defense.
"I'm very passionate about wanting to speak out on behalf of this young girl," Whelchel tells ABC News. "She is a role model, but it's not her responsibility to be a role model. That's so much pressure on a 16-year-old."
"I'm so proud of her for stepping up and being courageous and taking responsibility for her choices, and I believe she's being a good role model – a good role model in that situation, to choose to have the baby, and I am supportive of her in that situation," said Whelchel.
Since "The Facts of Life" bit the dust, Whelchel has written 12 Christian family books. Maybe she should be advising the Spears mommy, Lynne.
Lisa said when she spoke to her teenaged daughters about Jamie Lynn's pregnancy she quickly realized this was a wake up call for the parents not the kids.
