Guilty Pleasure

So I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I love celebrity news and gossip. When I worked at KinderCare everyone was hooked and I got hooked to. Every now and then I go to People.com to get my fix of news and gossip and yesterday I had a breakthrough.

In recent years adopting babies has become the thing for single celebrities. Hollywood has also had quite the baby boom in the last 5 years too. Yesterday there were two stories that really hit a point home for me. Halley Berry is pregnant and she has endured a lot in her marriages in the past and has aways talked about longing to be a Mom. In the announcement that she is now expecting she said something along the lines of how she has waited a long time to be where she is now. She is 41. There was also an article on Nicole Kidman who talked about how the night she won her Oscar was one of the most lonely nights of her life because she had no one to share it with.

It really made me realised that while these celebrities "have it all" in the worlds eye....all they really want is what I have. A man who loves me and that I love to be with and we have a great time together and 2 wonderful children. So the next time I have food in my hair and cant get a shower and don't have any clothes that don't have stains from my kids on them, I'm going to remember that the people who have the stylists and all the clothes in the world, really just want to be me.

I guess that is what makes you mentally healthy- I have never gotten into celebrity watching. I lived among some of them for a short time and didn't like any of them very much. Take your pleasure when and where you can get it (if it's not against the commandments) and celebrity watching isn't in the scriptures!

1) Celebrity gossip is also one of my guilty pleasures. As much as I tried to stay away from the whole Paris Hilton ordeal, I kept getting sucked in.

2) You are so so right! Thanks for reminding me that even on my bad days, I have the best life possible.
