It’s another end to another year. Most people like to look
back and reflect on what they did well in the past year, and what they could
better. Personally, I like to review the year a little differently. Who wants to review their own year when
reviewing someone else’s is so much more fun? And since celeb moms get so much flack just for being themselves,
foibles and all, I’m looking back at 2013 to see which celeb moms got it right.
She thinks there should be a law that all women breastfeed. I personally don’t
agree, but I do like that she puts her money where her baby’s mouth is. Oh, and my husband really liked her
breastfeeding/glamour photo. So did every other man in America.
Kate Middleton: I
can’t imagine being pregnant and having a baby with the whole world watching
and waiting, but Kate seems to have handled it all with the grace and charm
of…well, of a princess.
Kim Kardashian: Regardless
of what you think of Ms. Kardashian, she was on the tail-end of some serious
baby-weight brain criticism that reached a fever pitch. And despite having made a career out of
making her life public, she seems to be doing a good job of keeping her daughter’s
life private. At least, for now.
When her ex-husband’s passport was revoked and he was forced to move to Monaco,
an American judge ruled the couple’s two children should go to Monaco as well.
The only way Rutherford, an American actress, can see her children is to go
live in Monaco and not work or live in America and not see her kids. Instead of
giving up, she is relentlessly fighting to bring her children back to her. Go
Admitting her baby weight didn’t come off in labor and that for much of her
pregnancy, she didn’t feel a connection to her (then unborn) daughter, Kristen
Bell gives non-celeb moms everywhere a glimpse of reality by not sugar coating
her own life as a mom.
And the Award For The Best Celeb Mom Behavior goes to….
Denise Richards: Its not like raising 3 kids of her own isn’t
hard enough, but taking the 4-year-old twins of your ex-husband while his
ex-wife is in rehab? There should be an award for that, a seriously big award.
Amanda Bynes’ Mom:
She may not be a celeb in her own right, but her kid is. 2013 was the year of
cutie actress Amanda Bynes’ very public and often gut-wrenching meltdown, which
ended with months of rehab.
I can’t imagine what it was like for Amanda’s mom to have to
watch her daughter literally lose her mind via Twitter. Yet the Bynes’ have
stuck by thier daughter and kept her struggle private. If you’re like me, the
Amanda Bynes story this year wasn’t funny or even gossip-worthy. It was sad. Kudos to Amanda’s mom for sticking by her kid
and making sure she gets better.
