I own all the content and pictures on this site, except where noted. If you steal anything from me, and
especially if you do anything mean or inappropriate with them, I will find you. Then I'll sue you for
theft, slander, libel and any other law that applies. Then I'll ridicule you in humiliating ways
here and everywhere else I contribute to. If you fuck with me, I'll get get all Gladiator on your ass
and unleash hell. Think I'm kidding? So did my a couple of my exes, my old neighbors, as well as
some assholes who ripped me off on Ebay, and last I heard, they were all still trying to undo the
damage I caused.
So I open up the paper this morning and what do I see? That the folks behind a reality TV show named "Hottest Mom in America" will be in Miami searching for "sexy, engaging, confident" mothers.
Or, as the president of the production company put it: "We're looking for moms that turn heads wherever they go -- the supermarket, the football stands or kindergarten."
In other words, people, they're looking for slutty moms.
They're looking for two kinds of women here: the mom with the low self-esteem who feels her self-worth is measured by the length of her skirt and her ability to look 18, despite the fact that she's had 3 kids and is pushing 40. You know the kind, the ones who refuse to accept that time keeps ticking and they're not getting any younger, but they can't handle it. If they're single, they borrow their teenage daughter's clothes and go clubbing with her; they usually don't miss the Friday-night happy hour at whatever the bar du jour happens to be; and they'll go to great lengths to tell you how "with it" and sexy they are even though they have kids.
They want the hot mom who didn't eat for two years after having her kids so that she could become skinnier than she'd ever been and feel proud of herself for fitting into girls' size 14; the one who wears a mini skirt and 4-inch heels to Publix and who somehow manages to always look perfectly done; the one who can actually be that hot because her husband earns $100K+ so she doesn't have to work, yet she has a full-time nanny, so her day basically revolves around the gym, the mall and the beauty salon. Then she shows up at the "football stand" looking hot, and you wonder, "wow, how does she do it?"
She does it because she does NO mothering!
Look, I'm the first to say that being a mother doesn't mean I can't be sexy or well put together or any of that good stuff. But do you really believe that TV show wants those of us who look good but are, you know, real people? The ones who get food and crap all over their clothes when their babies eat, who wear sneakers or flip-flops to do the groceries, who don't always look 100% put together, who will wear a sexy outfit but not one that shows ass/navel/extreme cleavage all at the same time?
These people don't want truly sexy moms. They want to perpetuate the notion so many of us already have that for women who have kids, being sexy and confident means going to sometimes-ridiculous, sometimes-desperate, often-sad extremes just to be noticed, appreciated and admired.
Seriously, they can kiss my ass. My sexy, but well-covered, ass.

Just what the world needs, another show that makes women look desperate.

You are completely right & there are plenty of them here. They hang out in expensive spas and shop at ritzy boutiques during the day while the rest of us work and take care of our kids.

Please... anyone can look like a swan or a mutt. You just have to be happy with yourself first!! Then all the true happiness will follow. Too many women complain all the time about nothing, get in others business and spend too much time chatting instead of making themselves and there men happy! If you spent alittle time meditating about being romantic and sexy your man will improve and so will his income, and then you can afford to stay home instead of working.
