Oh Noes! Britney’s Sister is Preggers!

I am so tired of people being called role models… just because someone is on TV it does not make them role models. The media is so two faced about the whole thing too, they are the one actually telling everyone that the girl is pregnant.

We live in a TMZ crazed society where even our kids are more interested about what celebrities are doing than who is going to be the next president of the country.

I personally say, who cares if she is pregnant or not… isn’t she an actress… the actors from when I was growing up had drug problems and even worse, but I did not find out until the True Hollywood story. I guess they ran out of material for that so instead of waiting until the person either crashes or redeems themselves we want the play by play.

Our addiction with celebrity voyeurism probably started when OJ’s chase was on TV and then the following trial… but I seriously think we need to just go to rehab and stop caring about what those people do with their lives. In the end, who cares… if you are not a mentor to your kid and chose to have the TV as a babysitter… turn off the TV and don’t expect Nickelodeon or any network to make the parenting decisions for you.

  1. Well, the only reason they are even called “role models” is because some parents, one way or another, teach their kids that those people and those things are to be looked up to. Society in general plays along but when fame and wealth are the things kids are taught to aspire to then the celebrity mentality will continue. The day that more people start telling their kids to look up to integrity, perseverence and love (things most of the celebrities fail to display), it will be a step in the right direction.

  2. Jamie Lynn who?

  3. Dead on with this post. Who cares, and it is not like her family does not have the resources, financially anyway, to raise the child.

    Too bad the family is a train wreck in progress.

  4. Amen to that brother! Unfortunately my mom is hooked on those mags (probably an obsessive compulsive thing because she feels guilty after buying them), but I think it’s all trash.

    If people followed us all over the place taking pictures and poking in our private lives they’d be called stalkers. I couldn’t give a crap which celebrities are gay, and quite frankly I’m not horrified by Angelina Jolie’s veiny arms (mine are veiny) or britney’s cellulite.

    The people who push this trash news must have such monumentally low self esteem that they can only sleep at night by making others feel worse, and they somehow believe that it’s ok if the person is a celebrity because they somehow make themselves an easy target. Like a hunter shooting a fireman and saying “I can’t be blamed, he was wearing bright yellow, he WANTED to be seen!”

    The whole thing makes me nauseous, so I’ll move on.

  5. Next thing you know, Mylee Cyrus will be pregnant! Oh, I hope not! My daughter loves her (Hannah Montana).

    I wish these so-called “stars” would just go away. Who cares? Apparently, we do, because we’re writing about it, but really… do we? I think not. Go away Spears sisters and all you other trampy kids with no values and morals. 16 and pregnant – it happens – so get off the TV and go take care of your baby. That’s how she can be a real role model.

  6. I have two thoughts on this:

    1. Given this girl’s financial status (from her parents AND from her famous sister, who is sure to help her out financially) I hope she deals with the consequences of her action maturely.

    2. I think this is an excellent opportunity, as others have noticed, for parents to open the lines of communication with their children – not just daughters – to talk about sex, contraception and the repercussions of their actions.
