Dumb Celebs

To mere mortals, such as myself, celebrities seem to have it all: Money, beauty, great "freebies" from companies and designers...yet often times they make the stupidest choices. Like Britney Spears, for example. Her and her hunky (parasitic) husband, Kevin Federline, are broke BUT THEY KEEP SPENDING BIG MONEY. Now, according to Life & Style Weekly, they are bouncing checks.

Britney's latest big purchase is a third home, in England, for $6 million dollars. As for Kevin Federline, his recent "venture" is a multi-million dollar dance school he is building with Joe Jackson, Michael Jackson's father. So who has been taking care of the couple's newborn baby, Sean Preston Federline, while Britney and Kevin are out spending money they don't have? Britney's mom, Lynne Spears, of course! And Britney is hoping that her mother will "come to the rescue" financially as well, "to make sure Kevin doesn't spend all of (Britney's) money."

The other "major" crazy celeb, in my opinion, is Katie Holmes. I understand that Tom Cruise was her "childhood crush" and that she is now "living out (her) dreams" by being with him, but NO MAN is worth converting to Scientology for. I'm sorry, but this religion is just nuts. Amongst the religion's many controversial beliefs (aliens inhabiting the body, for one) is their "birthing beliefs." If poor Katie, who is pregnant with Tom's child, is going to follow the Scientologist's (Tom's) beliefs and practices, she will have to give birth (1) without any medication and (2) she can't scream out or cry. Of course the founder of this religion, L. Ron Hubbard, was a man -- no surprise there!

What is it with religion and misogyny? It seems like every religion -- at least the ones I know of -- hate women. I mean, not allowing the woman any medicine for giving birth AND not allowing them to scream or cry? That's horrible! Everyone I know who has given birth (I haven't done it, personally) says it was the most excruciating pain in their lives! If that is the case, I hope Katie goes ahead and takes the meds available to her. Poor thing. And from what I read and hear, her relationship with Tom and the whole "Scientology" thing is really putting a strain on her relationship with her family. I'll be praying for Katie Holmes -- and her family.

Someone *PLEASE* explain to me...

Why does everyone hate Kimora Lee Simmons? I have never figured that out. Is it because she is both filthy rich and extremely beautiful? Or because she is cute, perky, and outgoing? Or could it be because she has the most gorgeous daughter in the whole world, Ming Lee Simmons? (She also has another daughter, Aoki Lee Simmons, but she is ugly. Aoki looks identical to her father, Russell Simmons.)

I fell in love with Ming Lee Simmons the first time I saw her, in an ad campaign for her mother's clothing line, Baby Phat. She has always been stunning. As the daughter of Russell and Kimora, Ming has lived all of her short life in the spotlight. Yet no matter how many pictures have been taken of her, she has always looks impeccable. I have never seen a bad picture of Ming Lee Simmons. I hope that one day I can have a little girl as beautiful as she. In fact, I may just go ahead and adopt, just to make sure my future child(ren) is/are cute. Of course, I doubt any little girl can be as cute as Ming, but I want the "next best thing" if I can get it.
