Hollywood is Stoopid

16 Jan

Did you hear that Natalie Portman is Pregnant? Oh! So is Mariah Carey! And Selma Blair! And Alicia Silverstone! And Jane Krakowski! And Grey’s Anatomy spoiler alert: So’s Callie!

Is it just me or is there a pregnancy virus going around? Because if it is, please give me a piece of that action.

What kind of peeves me about these things is that all of these women are over thirty (with the exception of ms portman), and I’m pretty much convinced that at least some of them had a hell of a hard time conceiving. But nobody ever really talks about that, do they?

I read a couple of months back that lilly allen miscarried at 4 months. I’m not really a fan of hers but I was still devastated for her. But other than a small blurb about it, nobody talked about it. They were much more excited for the engagement ring she was sporting after the holidays.

Media: Oh look! Everybody is preggers and engaged! Happy happy fun times!

Me: Piss off.

I have to go back to Grey’s Anatomy again. I watch it. I have sort of a love-hate relationship with it. Since Sarah Drew became a part of the cast it’s more love than hate.

But I’m pissed at them. Meredith had a freakin’ miscarriage during the season finale. And they totally glossed over it. Everyone else’s trauma was talked about, but hers? Nope. Not really.

Now they have her obsessively POAS which is cute and all – but where was the grief? Dealing with the loss?

I think Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s exec producer) is a very sensitive strong woman, and I’m so incredibly disappointed with her handling of the subject.

I’m sure that MerDer’s TTC storyline will be very cute and all – but I don’t know, I just feel like it’s kind of missing half the point.

It’s bad enough I need to read about all of these over thirty celebrity women miraculously getting pregnant. Now my TV is betraying me.

End rant.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who was horrified at the Meredith storyline. I never even watched the finale, after I heard she’d m/c. I couldn’t deal. And then, aside from that one little joke about her uterus being hostile, nothing. She freaks out and tries to kill herself over everything else for the first six seasons, but a m/c is no big deal, because hey – at least Derek didn’t die on Cristina’s table.

    And now Callie’s pregnant? (I’m a few episodes behind.) Ew. Is it Mark’s?

      Oy – sorry for the spoiler! yes, it’s Mark’s. And it’s ridiculous. They’re doctors – you’d think they’d know about condoms.
      ick ick ick!

        You would think. But after all the people who you’d think would know about condoms in real life, I guess they’re just portraying reality. Sigh.

    On a slightly distracting side note: Natalie Portman is supposed to be producing and starring in Pride and prejudice and zombies. So just picture her taking down hordes of zombies instead of pregnant.

    I couldn’t agree more about how GA and Meredith’s miscarriage! I have been a fan since the very beginning of that show and I was extremely disappointed in how they handled it. And yes, I am also very irritated at the flux of pregnant women in Hollywood right now.

    Oh, I read somewhere yesterday that Natalie Portman’s dad is an infertility specialist and she is completely appreciative every second of her pregnancy for being able to be pregnant. So maybe we shouldn’t hate her tooo much. We can totally still hate her a little bit, though!

    […] back after you watch it, because you may well be just as ticked off as I am. I’ve already talked about how Grey’s ticked me off a couple of weeks back with their complete glossing over of […]
