Your Weekly Celebrity Mom Roundup
Try as I might to ignore what celebrity moms are wearing, how they are mothering their kids and what they're eating (or not eating) - I cannot wish them away. Are you as hooked on the mama drama as I am? Good!
Here’s everything you need to know about what happened to the moms of Hollywood this week:
Celebrity moms we love: Jennifer Garner. Why? Because she is honest about her marriage- and doesn't attempt to pretend that it's all rainbows and unicorns. Case in point: After her husband Ben Affleck’s Oscar acceptance speech when he admitted that marriage is hard work but, “the best kind of work," people were calling Garner and asking if there was trouble in paradise. Garner responded, “I know Ben; I knew he meant it as the hugest, warmest compliment in the world. I think he was saying, ‘Look, what we have is really real and I value it above all and I’m in it with you and I know you are in it with me.’ That’s the way I took it.”
Celebrity moms-to-be we should take it easy on: Kim Kardashian (yes, the attention starved Kim Kardashian). Poor pregnant Kim may not be making the best maternity fashion choices - but being criticized for GAINING weight while she is pregnant - something that every woman is supposed to do in order to ensure the health of her fetus - well that is just downright bullying. Even model Helena Christensen called the growing number of stories over Kim's increasing waistline “public bullying” and “lower than low”. In fact Christensen was so incensed at the stories she wrote an open letter via the Huffington Post about it.
Celebrity moms who are TRULY supermoms: Heidi Klum. Our favorite “Project Runway” diva proved that even an ocean riptide is no match against her mama bear powers. During a leisurely day at the beach the supermodel and her boyfriend jumped into action and rescued her seven-year-old son Henry and two of their nannies when they got swept away in the ocean.
Celebrity single moms who are turning lemons into LEMONADE: After splitting with husband Peter Facinelli, Jennie Garth has shed 30 pounds and is reinventing herself. She is proof positive that life begins after 40!
