This giveaway is closed. Chrystal who commented September 18, “I think in a way they are only because they are celebrities and have to worry more about stalkers” won the $50 VISA gift card! Diane Kleemann who commented September 23, “I think celebrity moms have a great deal more help than us regular moms” is the winner of the $25 VISA gift card!
Edited to add: The lovely folks at Mom Life are offering up a fun giveaway as part of this post and I have two VISA gift cards up for grabs! See the end of the post for details. Giveaway ends. Monday, Sept. 24.
Personal Trainer? Nope, unless you count my dogs who motivate me every morning with their tail wags when I put on my running shoes.
Chef? Nope, unless you count my hubby who is a fantastic cook.
Nanny? Hmmmm, how about my “manny,” my nearly 80-year-old dad who will babysit for me in a pinch but who will likely fall asleep in the recliner 10 minutes after I’ve left the house.
Driver? Um, that would most definitely be me.
Do celebrity moms with these celebrity perqs (that I definitely don’t have) really live that differently than the rest of us moms? Well, yes and no.
I had the fun opportunity to write a guest post on this topic over at Jen and Barb, Mom Life, a site which shares great videos about being in the trenches of motherhood. The topic this week is Are Celebrity Moms That Different Than Us?
Ali Landry, host of TV Guide’s show, “Hollywood Girl’s Night” and mother of two, is featured in this video about the ins and outs of being a famous mama.
Since I’m in Nashville, I though it would be fun to interview country music star and mom to two little ones Jo Dee Messina. Like me, Jo Dee is also featured regularly in The Tennessean’s Family section every month. She has a great blog called Fumbling Mom (I love that name as I can so relate.)
Check out the great video on Jen and Barb, Mom Life featuring Ali Landry and read my accompanying interview with Jo Dee who was gracious enough to offer her unfiltered look at the realities of juggling life on the road as a performer and being a mom. Thanks Jo Dee!
