Soon celeb.s may design ‘pre-nup.’ agreements with those closest to them– their book-deal-hungry Bodyguards and Nannies. The STAR warns: HOLLWOOD HOUSEKEEPERS TELL ALL and alleges the Brangelina household to be piled with pizza boxes plus hair-dye on the walls. Tabloids are a price of fame, but I feel for Public Mothers.
Stories on Sandra Bullock quote ‘insiders’ saying Bullock is pouring her stepmother heartbreak into a ‘tell-all diary’ that may become a book. Motherhood is always a challenge; Public Mothering has unique perils. I have no problem with criticism of self-created celeb. Kate Gosselin for DWTS mis-steps and general lack of talent, but I felt for her when she and her ex were publically court-ordered into Parenting Class.
A-list star Moms face judgement too. Brangelina is not only dealing with pizza-box-pile-up but with fallout from an ex bodyguard of Angelina Jolie‘s. He claims that Angelina doesn’t live up to her super-mama image, allegedly laughing when her kids cry. Of course, as any Mom knows, sometimes laughing is all you can do to keep from crying yourself.
Paul McCartney’s ex wife Heather comes in for bashing from her once-trusted nanny, who details Heather’s alleged tantrums and stinginess. From Nannies to ‘insider’ snipers, celebrity Moms can trust no one. Do the new breed of backstabbing bodyguards go too far? Is discretion dead? And why are Celebrity Dads less often in line of fire?
