I understand that human beings make mistakes. I know my outrage is nothing new, and Sasha Pasulka summed up a lot of folks’ feelings perfectly on HelloGiggles.
BUT– I am sickened by the way The Today Show is touting their big “get” this morning. Ann Curry just spoke with an 8-year-old girl whose mother brought her to the plaza like it was the cutest thing ever. This kid is EIGHT– and the women in her life today, both her mother and someone she sees on TV– are all telling her its okay to idolize someone who beat up his girlfriend.
I’m glad that Chris Rock made his opinion known on the Today appearance yesterday. What’s gross is the way the hosts are all laughing. I don’t get it. What’s funny?
Here is a photo of Ann Curry at a 2009 luncheon to help end domestic violence. Al Roker also attended.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic will appear on the Today Show to elaborate on what they’re already confirmed to E! News… they’re expecting a baby this summer via a gestational surrogate.
This celebrity baby announcement hits close to home. Giuliana and I went through IVF at the same time, and Beef and I even met with her Chicago doctor when we were preparing to switch offices. When she announced she was ALSO battling breast cancer, my heart broke for her. Wasn’t wrestling with infertility enough? Wasn’t MS enough for me, before I found out I had dried up old eggs?
I guess we both learned a lesson here. Let me be the first person to ever say- and to invent the phrase– Everything Happens for a Reason. I hope it catches on. I’m sure she would agree with me that neither one of us would take back any of the journey, because it led us to our little miracle babies. Miracle-Science babies, that is.
