I love the world of celebrity high jinks as much as the next guy. Trash mags and E Entertainment aren’t below me. I keep up with the Bennifers and Brangelinas. I won’t deny it. However, up until recently I haven’t given much thought to Tom and Katie. Sure they’re strange, big whoop. But a few days ago I heard about this “Vow of Silence” they have taken in regards to the birth of their soon-coming child. And now, I am officially FREAKED.

Any woman who has birthed a baby knows the deal. There is no controlling yourself, especially the primal screaming that goes hand in hand with pushing a 10 pounder out of our body through a pretty small hold. If there were an option to experience no pain, no stress, and no noise during birth, we’d do it. Duh.

Katie, you, my dear are in for the rudest awakening of your life.

I was inspired and highly amused with something I saw at Cool Mom Picks. It seems I’m not alone in my concern. Check out these Tees. PRICELESS.

Out of all this, I only hope for one thing, that after Katie gives birth, her Tom and L. Ron illusions are smashed to bits and she has the courage of Brooke Shields to blow the lid off this crap and tell it like it REALLY is. Come on Katie, you can do it.

    They wrote this up on Blogging Baby, arguing whether that’s true or not.

    Either way, she’s been sucked into a very very bad vacuum.

    I screamed (okay, MOANED) the whole time. And I dare anyone to tell a laboring woman to shut up.

    Vow of silence? WTF?

    The whole Tom/Katie circus freaks me out. I go with the theory that she isn’t really pregnant and there is a whole ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ thing going on.

    Maybe I’m watching too much E!

    Kind of like the idea that you can “Control” the contraction? You know – and “not push”?


    Someone will be punching someone in the multi million dollar nads.
