The rumors flying around Madonna seem to have panned out. She's adopting a toddler from Malawi who lost his mother and whose father/family approves of him moving up the opportunity ladder. Life outside an orphanage, regular meals, schooling... that dad is a loving and generous one, however despite all the glam, I sure would hate to be Madonna's kid. She doesn't even allow cola.
The real news behind this, because we all suspected the Angie factor in play already, was the infertility message.
Life & Style reports that Madge and Guy are definitely in the process of adopting a boy from Africa. An insider close to the star says the adoption follows three years of fertility treatments. "They just couldn't get pregnant again," the insider says.But then Perez had to add, "Congrats to Madonna. Whether its through adoption or having your own, babies are a beautiful thing!" Sorry, silly Perez, your sentiment was right on, but you missed the mark completely. Thanks, though, for at least being the only gossip blogger referencing Madonna, Guy, and infertility, as far as I could tell.
Shifting gears. Okay, Madonna put up with a week's worth of adoption rumors, but poor Sandra Bullock has been hounded about pregnancy since her marriage. Many times when this happens, when there's a little pooch, I worry that it is an ART-induced pooch and the questions are insult to injury, real injury in the form of fertility pills and potions. Sandra put that "Are you pregnant?" frustration into words this week:
Bullock whipped around, got right in the reporter’s face, and pointing her finger, yelled: “Oh my god that is just a disgusting question. And you know what? What if I couldn't have kids? You know what? That’s the way you make women feel when you ask them that question."Not only does she have a potential ART pooch, she has an ART mood!
Not usually a fav, she's growing on me.
ETA: How dare I neglect the J Lo angle, because contraception is everyone's business and Billy would not have asked this of Marc or if Marc was there, so it is sexist as well. J Lo was quite generous. Maybe Sandra makes house calls providing her coal raking services.
Billy Bush clearly doesn't think before he speaks. The Access Hollywood host made a total embarrassment of himself harassing Jeremy Piven at the Emmys, sending Eva to the hospital, and now awkwardly asking J Lo during an interview if she's "actively precaution free." Is he serious?
“What about children of your own?” Billy asked, “Slowing down the career and having that family … are you going to do it?”
“Yeah, yeah. I mean I do want to do it,” the 37-year-old superstar answered. “But I guess it’ll happen in its own time, naturally. I always say the same thing and we’ll see.”
“Is it up in the air?” Billy followed up, “Are you actively precaution free?”
Before Billy could add to the question, Jennifer began to laugh out loud, in mock disbelief.
“Did he say precaution free? If Marc was here, I’d be getting a signal like [cut it!],” she laughed.
