  • EXCLUSIVE: Jamie Lynn Spears looking at colleges, mom going to Jill Zarin for advice

    (OK Magazine)

    Lynn Spears and Jill Zarin had dinner in New York City this week, and Fox411.com has the exclusive on what they discussed.

    “Lynn and Jill have been friends for years, they have stayed in touch and they got together for a brief dinner at Kenmare [restaurant],” our source said. “There were definitely no cameras involved – you won’t see it on ‘The Real Housewives of New York’.”

    So what was the main topic of their top secret pow wow?

    Lynn Spears is about to have a daughter in college!

    Nineteen-year-old teen mom, Jamie Lynn Spears, is seriously considering going away to school.

    “Jamie Lynn is looking at colleges,” the insider told Fox411.com. “Jamie Lynn wants to go to college and Lynn needed some guidance. Jill and Lynn are friends and they end up talking a lot about what their daughters are up to. Jill’s daughter Ally is going away to school and Jill has been involved in the process every step of the way. Jill helped Ally write her application – she was hands on during the process.”

    This is uncharted territory for Lynn Spears, as neither sister Britney nor her brother Bryan attended college.

    “Lynn knows that Jill helped Ally and she has very little experience in this area,” the source said. “Jill knows all about the applications and follow-up and Lynn needed an idea of what to expect with Jamie Lynn doing it.”

    Jamie Lynn finished her high school education via online correspondence and received her GED two years ago. Since having baby Maddie when she was 16 years old, Jamie Lynn has been out of the spotlight and focused on her family.

    Jamie Lynn and Maddie used to live with Casey Aldridge, the child’s father, but the two split in February of this year.

    “Jamie Lynn is ready to continue her education. It was difficult being a young mom, but she’s doing it and she’s ready for a new challenge,” said the source, who did not know how Spears planned on taking care of Maddie while in school. “College would be great for her – she’s very smart. Lynn is so supportive of all of her kids, and she would love to see Jamie Lynn earn a college degree.”
