Celeb moms: Just because you're a mom now, doesn't mean we can relate to your pregnancy or childbirth tips. We can't.
Television host Nancy O'Dell recently came out with a pregnancy tip book and she isn't the only one: Jenny McCarthy has written about her experience, so has Jaime Presley and British "glamour model" Katie Price, aka Jordan. First of all, we didn't realize that being famous automatically makes one a writer capable of penning a novel. Then again let's face it, the only reason you're getting a book deal is because you're on TV. How annoying.
Second, it's likely that only a teensy percentage of the population will experience pregnancy and childbirth the way you have: In case you didn't know, we do not have trainers working us out during or after pregnancy, we do not have cooks preparing the healthiest meal for us and baby, we do not have an unlimited budget to prepare our nurseries and we certainly aren't going to receive special treatment at the hospital, let alone rent out the entire wing of a maternity ward. The pregnancy weight will not "magically" drop off two weeks after delivering our babies and a little nip tuck slash c-section? In our world, that's unheard of. We will have to gain and lose and be at home with our new baby all day and also cook, do the dishes, do the laundry and make our own beds. Our pregnancy weight will now become part of our new bodies. After all, who has time for a workout with all the new responsibilities?
So. We aren't the same, in fact we are very very different. How could you think that writing a pregnancy book about the ups and downs, weight gain, boob bloat (as if they're not already swollen from the silicone inside) is something we can relate to. What, you weren't able to get your monthly Botox during pregnancy? Awe.
Lastly, a "normal" new mom wouldn't have time to pen a book less than a year after a baby's born, go on a book tour while still holding down your daytime television job. That just shows ya, our lives are laughably different and therefore we really have no use or interest in your pregnancy tips. Sorry.
