Not another celebuspawn!

First Jessica Simpson, then Mindy McCready, now Kourtney Kardashian !  Holy unwed mothers!  No, I don’t keep up with the Kardashians, but Kourtney is now expecting baby number two.  Yes, another celebrity has touted their ability to reproduce and the world has fallen at their feet.  Kourtney tells us: “You’re supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.”

Twelve weeks, huh?  How about not telling us at all?           

Ok, I get it.  People somehow conceive babies.  It happens every day, but why in the name of God’s good graces, is this newsworthy? Think unemployment and illegal immigration are our nation’s most important issues?  No, the media chooses to make Beyonce’s “baby bump” (God, I hate that phrase) a leading story.

Remember when People magazine used to be about real people?   Go to People’s website right now!  Do it!  How many non-celebrity people stories do you see?  Probably not many, but I’m sure you’ll see a fertile actress or singer smugly stroking her burgeoning belly!

Maybe if more celebrities shared their fertility struggles, I wouldn’t feel like throwing my laptop across the room.  Yes, I’ve heard about Kourtney’s sister, Khloe (bet she’s feeling like a million bucks right now) and there are a few inspiring stories like Celine Dion’s (at least People did a cover story) and I suspect, many celebrities “in the closet” concerning their inability to conceive.

Here’s an idea, People Magazine:  put a couple of us infertiles on your cover!  Share our stories and our struggles!  Make us into celebrities, if only for a day!
