Tina Fey is pregnant! Yesterday, while promoting her new memoir Bossypants on “Oprah,” Tina Fey announced she is five months pregnant. The 40-year-old and her husband, Jeff Richmond, a composer for “30 Rock,” already have a five-year-old daughter, Alice. Damn, I am so irrationally excited about this and I’m not a woman who usually cares about what’s going on in a celeb’s uterus. Who else is psyched for the growing army of mini-Tina Feys that she is producing? BWAHAHAHA! I can’t wait to see how her pregnancy gets incorporated into a Liz Lemon storyline on “30 Rock.” Mazel tov, Tina! [People] Keep reading »
Will someone explain to me the impulse of pregnant celebs to pose naked? Mariah Carey posed nude for the cover of Life & Style, flaunting her pregnant belly carrying the twins — a boy and a girl — she’s expecting with hubby Nick Cannon. “I was feeling very vulnerable about taking pictures at all right now, but then I didn’t want to miss this opportunity to document this once-in-a-lifetime experience,” Mimi told Life & Style. “My ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans.” I’d love to be there, 1,000 years from now, when archeologists unearth these mags and wonder why, at one point in time, our society photographed our richest pregnant women naked. Should be fascinating. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
I’m all for celebrating the circle of life, but this is too much celebration for my taste. Let’s hope Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon don’t see this and get any crazy ideas. [The Clearly Dope] Keep reading »
Apparently, painting your belly when your pregnant is something that people do. Including people like Mariah Carey, who posted this photo to her Twitter and referred to the twins she is expecting as “dem babies” (which is also painted on her stomach). I’m relieved Mariah is due next month, as the enormity of that butterfly is scaring me. [ONTD] Keep reading »
Something is rotten in the state of Georgia: narcotics K-9 officer Ruth Hernandez was fired by the city of Thomsen, Georgia after getting pregnant.
According to WAGT-TV, Ruth Hernandez became pregnant with her second child and told her superiors that she couldn’t perform her duties until November 11 (eight months from now). Obviously if she is pregnant, it is ill-advised for her be in dangerous positions that cops can find themselves in. Fortunately, by federal law, if an employee cannot perform a duty because of a disability — which is how pregnancy is viewed by the law — the employer is supposed to try to find a similar job that he or she can do. For instance, Thomson, Georgia, was hiring for a secretary, which is a desk position, in its fire department. However, Ruth Hernandez says she was never offered the secretarial position. Nor did the city of Thomson offer her a leave. Instead, she was fired by Thomson PD, which said in a statement to WAGT, it was “unable to hold her position vacant for the length of time requested.” Her police car and her K-9 dog have been given to another officer and Ruth is now unemployed.
I call bulls**t. Keep reading »
