Jillian Michaels and J.Lo: Celebrities who are annoying us today
The Biggest Loser's Jillian Michaels says in an interview with Women's Health that she would adopt a child over pregnancy because "I can't handle doing that to my body." As one of our Twitter followers @WhoaMomma said "she won't ruin her body with a pregnancy. However, a lot of pregnant women may ruin Jillian's body for that comment."
In fairness to the personal trainer for America's fattest game show contestants, that is quite a piece of art she's sculpted. But do people really put off childbirth for that reason? Priorities must take a beating during spin class.
And then there's Jennifer Lopez, at right with husband Marc Anthony and twins Max and Emme. She's aiming for a second act with a poorly reviewed romantic comedy The Backup Plan, while raising 2 year olds. She says in People of the whole career and motherhood scene: “It’s a balancing act,” she said at the film’s Hollywood premiere. “I wouldn’t say it was tough.”
Hmmm, I might agree with J.Lo if she'd send a few of her nannies my way. Maybe it's not that tough after all. Is it just me or does she come off as one of those fakey celebrities who act like they invented this working mother thing?
