Sorry, did not mean to offend any avid celeb fans....

you realize there are clauses, loopholes and such????? My mother is in a similar industry and things can change and mag articles are cancelled ALL the time....Believe it or not, contracts can be changed. She does not HAVE to do things. Sure a premiere here or there...
|You do realize that she can very easily take the baby with her to an interview, or even conduct interviews over the phone so that she doesn't even have to leave home. She can also bring the baby along to talk shows, photo shoots, etc.
Ummm, yes, did I say anything to contradict this. You apparently missed my point too. She said she would disappear, and it does not seem like she is........THAT IS ALL............I beginning to wish she would, I had no idea so many people were loving her so much. And got so defensive about her. WOW. Color me shocked.
|I've seen many more photos of Gwyneth holding Apple than I have of her using a stroller. She said on Oprah that she labored for some 70 hours and she really wanted to go all natural, but at 70 hours, they made her get an epidural. She's a huge advocate of breastfeeding, eating organic, and herbal medicine. She doesn't have a nanny, and she's obviously a very loving, caring mother.
Being that I am not a "celeb junkie," I cannot count the holding pics versus stroller pics...nor do I care. I am glad she does all the above, congrats to her...so do many other mothers. BUT THAT WAS NOT MY POINT!!!!!!!! I never said she was not a loving, caring mother (SHEESH, DOES EVERYTHING here need a disclaimer nowadays? everything has to be taken so personally? can nothing be snarky?????)
As for the nanny, the UK reports (and her baby just sits to the side while she spends hours interviewing and modeling for shoots??? and at premieres??? I do not know b/c I do not care) beg to differ but that is neither here nor there. B/C A nanny is not a bad thing if you need one.
[/QUOTE]I guess I'm just really confused as to why it's necessary to trash her or turn her into a bad mother. [/QUOTE]
I did not, missing my point again..........where did I or anyone say she is a bad mom??? I know nothing of her ACTUAL parenting skills.
|...why don't we support her and look up to her as a mother who embodies so many AP/NFL ideals instead of trying to focus on the negatives?
I guess I do not "look up" to celebs...I have real role models...I suppose part of me is turned off by celeb worship and the like--and that is a result of my feelings...And do you know her? How do you know she embodies all these ideals????? Just curious...
Not to be snarky, but seriously do not take it so personally. I just pointed out the obvious--it has been pointed out before in other threads, in the media. Don't shoot the messenger, sister!
BACK TO JULIA!!! Seriously! Intended home waterbirth!!!!!
