Courtney Love is nobody's saint, nor has she always been the most stable mother to Frances Bean, but she want everyone to know that, unlike some people, her hard partying took place before (and after) the first year of her daughter's life, not during. Extra caught up with C Love. at the Billboard Awards. Obviously Janice Dickenson had to chime in, too:
Courtney Love spilled the beans about her own love woes, after we commented on her stunning appearance.
???I look a little chunky,??? she confessed. ???I got depressed over a guy, and I ate angry menstrual ice cream.???
While she wouldn???t reveal the identity of the man who holds her heart, Courtney did had plenty to say about new mom Britney Spears??? recent late-night partying with Paris Hilton.
???Say what you will about me, and I'm not passing judgment, but when I had my daughter, I stayed home with her almost every night for the first year of her life,??? Love said.
Supermodel Janice Dickinson echoed those sentiments, and told ???Extra??? it???s time for the pop princess to hang up her party pants and be a mom.
???I mean, even I had give up my wild ways and buckle down and become a parent,??? Dickinson insisted. ???Paris is not the nanny; Britney should hang with the nannies and the children.???
Oh no they di'iiiiin't.
That is ridiculous..Brit has stayed home for over 2 years being a mom! She goes out for a couple nights and gets criticized! She is 25 years old, and has plenty of help at home..If it were the dad out every night partying nobody would criticze him! Brit keeep you head up girl
Sorry Britttt. I disagree with you a bit here. First off her oldest is only one so it hasn't been two years. Unless I guess if you count the time during her first pregnancy. Second, no one can replace the mother. Having all the nannies in the world doesn't give permission to be laissez faire with time spent with your kids. Third, I think everyone DID criticize Kevin when he was the one being photographed everywhere but at home. I'm a young mom too and there are just things you accept about your life when you have small children dependant on you. You're a role model, a caregiver. You don't have to stop being cool all together, but you do have to maintain a level of respect. I defended Britney during all her hard times recently because it seeme like she was just trying to be a good mom and everyone wanted her to be who she was before. But unfortunately her idea of a comeback is crotch flashing and hard partying. I had higher hopes I guess.
Hahaha, this is the best mother advice a jackal and a hyena could give a new mom! At least Britney's ex is still alive to father his kid a little.
Menstrual ice cream? Is that a new Ben & Jerry's flavor? Not a "best seller" I would guess.
If she's smoking, doing drugs and drinking, no way she's being a good mom. What Dear Abby says..
ARE YOU READY FOR PARENTHOOD?
(1) Can you support the child financially? Children are expensive. I always urge people to complete their education and delay parenthood until they are self-supporting, in case they should find themselves in the role of sole provider.
(2) Can you support the child emotionally? Babies are cute, but they are also completely helpless and emotionally needy. While some young women say they want a baby so they'll have someone to love them, the reality is it's the parent's responsibility to love and sacrifice for the child. In plain English, this means the end of a normal teenage social life because babies are extremely time-consuming.
(3) Are you prepared to be a consistent parent? Children learn by example -- both good and bad. Are you prepared to be a role model for the behaviors you want your child to mimic? Because mimic they do. They learn more from what they observe than what they're told.
(4) Have you read up on child development? Are your expectations of what a child should be able to accomplish as he or she reaches various chronological milestones realistic? Ditto for your partner, whether or not he or she is the child's biological parent.
(5) Are you prepared to put someone else's needs before your own for the next 18 to 21 years? Remember, babies can't be returned to the manufacturer for a refund if you're not 100 percent satisfied. Sometimes they come with serious challenges. Can you cope with those realities?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, I strongly advise postponing parenthood.
I like Courtney, and genuinely believe she loves her daughter, but she should know when to keep her mouth shut about some things. Frances seems to be normal and poised, but let's face it. Pot? It's kettle. You're black.
The above comment highlighting the dear Abby advise is SOOOOOOOOO TRUE! I am 21 and a single mother to a 10 month old. I love my son more than anything in this world. I'd kill for him, I'd die for him. The thing that perplexes me is that, like another comment above, NO ONE can replace Mommy...PERIOD. And I love Brit, and want to see her do good. It just hurts me for her kids. Any mother knows, when you look into your childs eyes you can see and feel that they need YOU! Not the nanny, not granny, not even daddy a lot of times. The mother is usually the only one that can TRULY and FULLY comfort her baby. And they diserve that! It just worries me that Brit can see that, no doubt, especially with a newborn, and still has been out just about every day the past 2 weeks...I still love her tho, LOL!
Ok...enough motherly advice for today!
Thanks for making me laugh!
dmumsie, I totally agree with you.
Babies aren't puppies that you just can leave with some relative or a friend. Even if you do employ a nanny, then, don't come over a few years later whining that your kid is out of control or doesn't obey you when you let someone else take control of his upbringing. Once you become a parent, you have to be selfless and put your child before yourself in every single circumstance. That's why you should think first before having a baby. If you're not ready to give up your wild, single partying days, then don't become a parent. Your poor baby shouldn't be paying for your selfishness.
