What is it with recent celebrity baby names? First there was Gwyneth Paltrow’s Apple, now there is Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell’s baby girl, Bluebell Madonna, and now there’s Cherri Pie, courtesy of none other than Anna Nicole Smith, the fabulously ditzy former Guess girl and Playboy playmate who’s back in her skinny jeans thanks to TrimSpa.
Rumors are swirling that Anna Nicole has a bun in the oven. Personally, I’m ready for someone to step in and take the pressure off of Britney Spears. One of Anna Nicole’s toy pooches is named Sugar Pie so if the fruit of her loins is named Cherri Pie, I give her an F for originality. (Which would probably match her cup size…) Anna Nicole as a new mom would be absolutely fabulous tabloid and/or reality show fodder. We need this comic relief, people, what with the recent birth of Scientology’s most famous baby, Suri TomKat, and the impending birth of the Who Knew Saving the World Could Look So Sexy Celebrity Baby (Brangelina’s creation).
Cue up Warrant’s “She’s My Cherry Pie,” because here are my candidates for worst fictional baby names based on desserts.
And my favorite…Bourbon Balls.
I could stomach Cherri Pie, no pun intended, if it was shortened to Cherri. But the “Pie” is the icing on the cake. All I can think of is a really bad Warrant video.
p.s. On another related Anna Nicole note, I find it humorous that her lawyer’s name is Howard Stern.
