Hooray for celebrity gossip
It's so much fun to stand in line at the supermarket. Where else can a woman who's battling infertility read no less than six different magazine covers telling her which celebrities have recently had babies (Christina Aguilera, Nicole Richie), which celebrities are expecting (Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew McConaughey), and which ones are trying again? (Britney? Oh sweetie, really?)
At least Halle, pregnant at 41, gives me hope... the rest of it is just annoying. Are people really this obsessed by celebs, that we need every magazine at eye level to be talking about pregnancy, pregnancy, pregnancy? Whatever happened to Kirstie Alley's battle with her weight?
Oh, and just to prove that I'm no better than anyone else in the celebrity-obsession department, has anyone else heard the rumor that Will Smith is now a scientologist? Say it ain't so, Will!
