Hollywood Moms Dish on Family in an Upcoming Book
There’s one thing you can say about the folks in Hollywood, they are never short of opinions. It’s interesting sometimes to see that celebs for all their fame and fortune go through pretty much the same trials and tribulations as the rest of us.
If you want to hear some Hollywood moms’ views on family then consider getting the book The Black Book of Hollywood Pregnancy Secrets. The celebs talk about keeping things grounded, being in the limelight and single parenthood. The book was written by Kym Douglas and Cindy Pearlman. To gather material they spoke to a number of celebs including Tina Fey, Kate Hudson, Katie Holmes and Angelina Jolie.
Kate Hudson, who spilt from her husband, The Black Crowes frontman, Chris Robinson in 2007, finds dating these days challenging. There are probably quite a few documented cases of other single parents having similar difficulties. Dating after divorce can be a pretty difficult, especially if there are kids in the picture. Hudson is mom to five-year-old, Ryder. “I’d rather be at home with my son cooking dinner than going out with a guy. My son is my man,” she said.
Funny-woman, Tina Fey says of parenting, “I don’t care how many covers you’re on. When you’re chasing a three-year-old around with a pull-up hoping she won’t poop on the floor, you’re just like every other mom on the planet.” The Golden Globe winner keeps things pretty busy with her work on TV’s 30 Rock, big screen movies and her recent guest spot on Saturday Night Live. I’m sure many working moms would agree with her about certain universal truths of motherhood.
Maybe the most famous Hollywood right now is Angelina Jolie. She gives some insights into her family life, and talks about celebrating Halloween in India. I’m not sure how much more we can learn about Angelina’s family, they are in fact one of the most covered by media in the world. Her fans however can get a copy to see if she offers anything new on raising children, especially with the brood she has and whether she plans to have any more.
The book will be on shelves in March of 2009.
