What ever happened to the old saying, “first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage?” With the onslaught of celebrity pregnancy announcements lately, I couldn’t help but notice just how many of them are not married. Do celebrities know how to use birth control? Here’s the rundown:
Natalie Portman: not married, engagement announcement came out the same day as pregnancy.
Marian Cottilard: not married.
Kate Hudson: not married.
Victoria Beckham: Whoo-hoo, she’s married!
Devon Aoki: not married, engagement announcement came out the same day as pregnancy.
Tia Mowry: Yay! She’s married.
Jane Krakowski: nope, not married… oh, but she’s engaged though.
Selma Blair: again, not married.
Jewel: married. so excited for her and hubby , Ty.
Kim Zolciak: after experiencing being a lesbian, she is now expecting with boyfriend, Kroy Bierman.
We’ll, add a guy in here… Owen Wilson: not married. Who even knew he had a girlfriend?
So there you have it, 3 out of 11 are married. Granted, I firmly believe that babies are a blessing, but come on folks. What is this teaching the younger generation? With the popularity of the MTV hit, 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, teenagers are seeing getting pregnant as the trendy thing to do. The “subjects” of that show are on covers of magazines and raking in the cash. In her latest court appearance, Teen Mom star, Amber Portwood admitted she made $280,000 last year… all from being on that show!
Celebrities need to realize they are role models to their younger fans and start acting a little more responsible… starting with birth control.

1 papaya, peeled, seeded, and cubed
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
1 red onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded, deribbed, and diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 2 limes
Salt and freshly ground pepper
8 flour tortillas
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) grated Asiago cheese
Combine the papaya, avocado, onion, bell pepper, garlic, olive oil, and lime juice in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Lay 1 tortilla in the pan and add a generous sprinkle of cheese. Top with another tortilla and cook, turning once or twice, until the tortilla is crisp and cheese is melted, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a metal spatula, transfer the tortilla to a cutting board and cut into 4 triangles. Keep warm in a low oven while cooking the remaining quesadillas. Serve on a warmed platter, with the papaya-avocado salsa in the center or alongside.

On the show, Gwyneth Paltrow played a Spanish teacher whose classroom lesson included the following: “Lindsay Lohan is totally crazy, right?” And, Gwyneth quizzed the class in Spanish, “How many times has Lindsay Lohan been to rehab?”
Sources say Lohan’s family thought it was tasteless.
Mommy Dina Lohan said, “Our lawyers are sending a letter to ‘Glee.’” Of course you are…

So, does anyone else find it a little too “coincidental” that Jessica Simpson got engaged just days after her ex, Nick Lachey proposed to Vanessa Minnillo? Jessica and new fiancé, Eric Johnson, have been together for 5 ½ months, while Nick and Vanessa have been together for 4 years.
Now, I of all people can’t judge an engagement after such a short period of time… I was engaged to my hubby after 3 ½ months. But, a few major differences stick out. One, neither of us had ever been married. Two, I was not jumping from relationship to relationship, proclaiming to everyone that this one was “the one”. Three, my significant other was not separated (hadn’t even filed for divorce) at the time we met.
According to US Weekly, a source close to Ms. Simpson says many of her friends don’t trust Johnson. He “was never that successful in the NFL, but he’s always wanted the celebrity-lifestyle,” they said. “I believe that Jessica is his way to get famous. He’s using her.” Adds a second insider, “Eric doesn’t have a job, he just follows her around. Her friends do not trust him.”
Jessica seems to be brushing off other people’s opinions of her new fiancé, gushing “He definitely makes me happy and makes me very comfortable being who I am,” she said. “It’s nice to be with somebody who praises you for all the right reasons.”
Her family has publically stated “how happy she is” and that “Eric is a great guy that makes her happy.” I’m pretty sure Papa Joe is just excited to see his girl getting a little more press as of late. Wonder how much he’ll try to sell the wedding pics for? One thing is for sure, I’m sure dear ol’ dad will make Eric sign a pre-nup!
As for the rings, let’s just say I’m digging Vanessa’s 4-carat asscher cut bauble quite a bit more than the ruby and diamond ring Jessica has been sporting. I’m quite surprised Jess’s isn’t a little larger… considering she probably had to buy it!
Wonder who the first one will be to hear the pitter-patter of little feet?
