Lynne Spears hopes for


Despite the letter Britney Spears handed to her last week, allegedly telling her to stay away from Brit's kids while she's on medication, Lynne Spears is hopeful that she and her daughter will reconcile, even telling reporters that she wants Britney to come back to her hometown of Kentwood, La., for the Fourth of July. However, Britney, who's enjoying the Hollywood nightlife with her girlfriends in LA, doesn't seem nearly as inclined to kiss and make up with her mother. "I'm praying for her right now. [I hope] she gets all the help she needs," says Britney. When asked about whether they'd reconcile, she shrugged, "In time, who knows what will happen?"
