Momlogic's Jenny:  No help? No drugs? No crazy diet? B.S.!

nicole kidman jennifer lopez halle berry celeb moms

Calling all Celebrity Mommies (Nicole K., J-Lo, Halle, etc.): Stop lying! Seriously. Stop lying. You've told us that you don't have nannies, that you swam in magical waters that made you fertile, and that you "gosh, golly" have no idea how you lost all that baby weight. Come on! We may be suffering from Momnesia, but we certainly haven't forgotten how hard being a mom actually is!  What we can't understand is why none of you actually say, "Yes! We have help (Uh, that's why I'm standing on this red carpet this evening!)" Or "Yes! I have a trainer. Otherwise I wouldn't have gotten $15 Million to make this next movie." Or "Yes! I did undergo infertility treatment because we tried for so long, and weren't having any luck."

Why is there so much shame in admitting that you are NORMAL???  We have nannies. We have baby weight to lose. We have problems getting pregnant. Why must you hide these aspects of your lives when so many women might actually relate to you? It would make you even more likable! We don't want to believe that "Stars are Just Like Us," just because they drink Starbucks or Sneeze in public. Big deal!  As moms, we want to know that you, like us, feel like fat asses after having a baby and have to work hard to get into your designer gown -- we are okay with you admitting that you're trainer has moved in with you and makes you work out for 6 hours a day. We want to know that your make up and hair didn't just magically do itself while you were caring for your newborn twins --  we are okay with you admitting that you had a team, literally A TEAM of stylists AND A NANNY (or two!) helping you get ready. Just. Admit. It.

Seriously, we know that most of you are "not of this world," but come on, stop with the "effortless" nonsense.  It's never easy being a mom, no matter how much help you have. So please, for the love of tight jeans, stop lying. You are making us feel bad.

Of course a celebrity doesn’t want to admit she is like the rest of us. That would mean that she would have to lower her status to that of a regular citizen (peasant!). I think that they really think that they have us fooled into thinking that they actually are better than us.

Actually, Halle Berry did admit to having a trainer help her get back into shape for her next movie. She also walks around without makeup. Salma Hayek is another celebrity who spoke about needing help to get her body back. The one who the post relates to the most is Jennifer Lopez.

AMEN to you Jenny! The celebs undermine all women by their blatant disregard for the priveledges they enjoy. If a multi-million dollar actor or model really thinks they somehow can compare to what everyday moms are going through they are only fooling themselves. Personally I do not look up to them as “role models” but rather the single mom, or spouse of someone in the military, who must support her family around the clock and can still manage to find an ounce of time to remain true to herself.

Um, Jennifer Lopez did a triathlon, so I don’t think she’s exactly hiding the fact that she ha, nor is that exactly an “effortless” way to lose the baby weight. It’s not like she said it just “fell off” from “breastfeeding” like many do.

Lizzette- Jennifer Lopez did a triathlon, so I don’t think she exactly lied or hid the fact she had a trainer and worked out. She hasn’t denied having a team of stylists either.

You know Angelina Jolie has nannies and nurse maids. Why do this people think we are so dumb?

And why shouldn’t these stars believe they are “above the norm”? They are worshipped by the media and fans until they believe their press. Then they want to tell us how to vote and run the country, when they barely know how to read a newspaper! And…people listen. Amazing. So all you moms who are struggling…you are the norm and you will survive the tough times and the soft belly and hips! Trust me.

In many cases I would say not just trainers, but lots of surgeries can help…

Let’s face it the playing field is never going to be equal.Some people have more help and money than others.

Some people have more desire(with no money) to get into shape and do the hard work. Either way,women are always hating on each other which is just making an excuse for themselves.

I work out for myself not for what the neighbor thinks about me working out and staying slim.

Why don’t we start excepting ourselves just the way we are (or not) then go from there? Instead we would rather hate on each other and not do a thing to change ourselves.

So what if they lie? Why are we so annoyed by women we will never meet and only impact us and our families if we allow.

We are most times our own worst enemy.
If we were more secure in who we REALLY are not who we think we are. We would have to bash the empty women who chose no to be real with themselves and the public they attempt to entertain.

I HAVE TO ADMIT I’VE SEEN INTERVIEWS WHERE HALLE, JOLO & NICOLE EACH ADMITTED TO HAVING HELP LOSING THE WEIGHT & THAT IT IS TERRIBLY HARD. NOW ANGELINA SAYS SHE HAS HELP ONLY DURING THE DAY(I REALLY DON’T BELIEVE THAT: OF COURSE SHE THINKS SHES ABOVE US “ORDINARY” MOM’S) I REALLY CAN’T STAND A LIAR. IF ACTRESS’ WOULD ONLY COME DOWN OFF THEIR PEDESTAL’S(NOT ALL ACT THIS WAY)THEY WOULD FIND WE WOULDN’T BE SO CRITICAL OF THEM.LOOK AT ANGELINA SHE STILL HAS A TERRIBLE ROLL AROUND HER WAIST.NICOLE(RITCHIE),CHRISTINA,KATE, ETC. LOOK GREAT & ADMIT TO TRAINERS & OUTSIDE HELP!LOOK AT LISA PRESLEY(GORGEOUS!)GOOD LUCK TO ALL NEW MOMMIE’S JUST LOVE & CHERISH YOUR PRECIOUS BUNDLES OF JOY!
