So Kim Kardashian’s Baby Bump is Showing; WHO CARES?!

As I logged into my Yahoo! account yesterday to check my very important and serious email … there were the words … bitch-slapping me across my tender cheeks:

Kim Kardashian’s Baby Bump is Showing!

[Pause … for effect.]

When my eyes finally adjusted to the message, you know what words fluttered through my delicate brain?


‘Who the f– cares!’

I mean, really. I’m not trying to be a celeb grinch or anything, but how many women become pregnant each year? I’ll tell you (yes, I actually looked this up):

In the U.S. alone, nearly 4 MILLION births take place each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And that’s births. Can you imagine how many women actually become pregnant?

So Kim Kardashian’s baby bump is showing.

(Note: NOT “Kim Kardashian’s Baby is BORN,” or “Kim Kardashian in Custody Battle”)

Hmmm. To complement this fascinating, breaking, Pulitzer-worthy story, here are some other items that made headlines on Thursday, Jan. 24:



Quick, grab the camera! Light a fire! No, sound the tornado sirens! Hell, make it a nuke warning! Close the movies, call the President … hurry, someone get me a pedicure! STAT!

Meanwhile, I demand a headline of my own: “Shari Lopatin Drives Car.”

  1. The really sad thing would be to look up how many people click to read the riveting details of her baby bump showing vs. the number of people who click on the other headlines you mentioned that might truly matter to the planet. And I’m sorry….why is she famous again? Oh. Yeah.


    1. Couldn’t agree with you more. I’m actually a former daily newspaper reporter, and I get freakin’ depressed when I see the state of our media today, and what people care about. But that’s a WHOLE OTHER blog topic. 🙂


  2. Thank you!! The trash that passes for “news” is appalling. I’ve never understood why this woman is a celebrity. What has she contributed to the world??


C'mon, you MUST be thinking something.
