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