Kim Of Queens premiers on Lifetime today, because what the world needs more than anything is another show where a mess of heavily made up women scream at awkward prepubescent girls about using their instrument and rising to the occasion and spray tanning. More

This weekend, I caught up with some extended family and was surprised to hear that I had gained celebrity status in the past month. Suddenly, my cousins and aunts were all really excited about my job. Turns out, Snooki tweeted at me a couple weeks ago when I suggested that sharing her post-birth stitch count was a little TMI! And she has a message for us here at Mommyish… More
Snooki has officially crossed the overshare line with new details about her son Lorenzo’s birth, included the post-delivery stitch count. Let’s not let this TMI detail be the newest Mommy Badge of Honor. More
There have been rumors for months that Kris Jenner was going to be getting into the daytime talk show game. We’ve been patiently giving these rumors the side eye, hoping they slink away back to the pit of D-List Celebrity Gossip where they belong. Instead, it looks like our fears are becoming reality. ‘Kris‘ is getting a test run this summer on Fox stations around the country. More
It looks like Jessica Simpson won’t be the only professionally pregnant celebrity out there! Snooki and JWoww are just as prepared to create their own little money-makers. After the wonderful success Snooks has had transforming her bad girl reputation into that of a humorous and relatable new mom, it shouldn’t be surprising that both of the Jersey Shore alums see motherhood as a solid career move.

I really wish these jerks would stop forcing me to defend Kate Gosselin. More
Listen, we’re not huge fans of the controversial reality mom Kate Gosselin around these corners. We don’t agree with everything she does. But that doesn’t mean that we’ll be hopping on the “Kate Gosselin beats her children” bandwagon anytime soon. Call us crazy, but child abuse isn’t really a joking matter to us. And it’s not the type of thing that you accept as fact when it’s reported by a source like Radar Online. More
I’m interested in babies and famous babies enough without needing a new show about z-list celebrities becoming neighbors and “keeping their sanity.” More
We’re a little confused in the Mommyish offices this morning. Just last month we learned that Holly Madison, former Girl Next Door and Hugh Hefner Girlfriend #1, was in the process of adopting a child. She told In Touch, “I love performing in the theater, and you can’t really do that when you’re pregnant,” while explaining that she would be bringing home a child from Africa or South Korea.
Last week, I received an interesting email from a casting agent for a reality television program. At first, I thought that I must have opened some new form of spam mail by accident. I looked for the tell-tale random link or sales pitch. But all I found was a request to speak about some of the pieces I’ve written in the past.
At first, I was curious about the show and the premise. Then I realized that there wasn’t a single mother on reality TV that I wanted to be like. In face, I find all of them universally troubling. More
Oh Bravo! The station that can find a million different way to market crazy, rich people is shaking up the cast of Real Housewives of New York. They’ve fired original cast members Jill Zarin and Alex McCord, as well as new-comers Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop. That means the only remaining ladies are Countess LuAnn, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. Apparently, the increasingly boring New York edition of Housewives needs a little spicing up.
I don’t know a single thing about the new ladies joining the remaining three housewives. But I’m pretty positive that it won’t make the show any more realistic or relatable for actual housewives. More
