What to Expect When You’re Expecting: The Movie

No really, this is happening.  A film based on What to Expect When You’re Expecting, that classic pregnancy manual, is in the works. There’s no news about the cast or director yet, but the screenwriter is the woman who wrote Whip It!, that roller derby movie with Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore, and the word is that it will have the same sort of structure as Love Actually and Valentine’s Day, revolving around five expecting couples.

I don’t feel good about this.  Have you guys read this book?  I did back when I was 10 and my sister got knocked up, mostly because I was told that I’d be helping take care of the baby and also because I read pretty much anything I could get my hands on.  I still remember a lot of the book (I was also the best, most knowledgeable aunt ever), but I don’t think I ever thought “you know what should happen to this book?  A dramatization.”  Somehow reading about the effects of different drugs and alcohol on a fetus and learning what an episiotomy was didn’t scream “rom com” to me.

What do you guys think?  Is this book too factual for an adaptation, or would you be willing to give the finished product a chance?

Kim Zolciak is Pregnant and Starting Shit With The Wrong Lesbian

Kim Zolciak is supposedly pregnant with Atlanta Falcons player Kroy Biermann’s baby. We know this because Kim asked her former lesbian lover DJ Tracy Young to raise the baby with her, and once she settled whatever fight she was having with Kroy, she dumped Tracy again, leaving her pissed and ready to talk to the press. Ugh. These people suck so brutally.

From Star:

Earlier this month, Tracy flew to Atlanta to reunite with Kim, four months after their bitter breakup. “She said she still loved me and wanted to tell me something important face to face,” Tracy tells Star exclusively in our Nov. 8 issue, on newsstands now.

Kim dropped the bombshell baby news and Tracy says, “When I asked her what she was going to do, she said, ‘I want you to stay and raise the baby with me, because Kroy doesn’t want to be involved.’” Little did Tracy know that only two days after Kim’s stunning announcement, her world would come crashing down as Kroy came back into the picture.

Wow. The presence of a harmless living being makes so many things that would normally just be trashy and uncomfortable flat-out unacceptable, huh?

Y’all have probably been more dedicated to this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta than I have, but what’s going on with Kim these days? She’s obviously no longer with Big Poppa, so she’s not making income from that. Her two daughters are getting older and less dependent on her, so perhaps she’s seeing the light at the end of the Child Support Tunnel and it’s freaking her out? Is that all this lady is good for? Pumping out other dude’s kids and picking up the checks? Yikes.

OK, So Justin Timberlake Can Definitely Still Sing

After I saw The Social Network, my first complaint was that I’m really over Justin Timberlake The Hollywood Actor. I loved him as a singer and while dabbling in the movie biz is expected for any multi-hyphenate these days, JT seems to have stuck around a little bit too long.

But his performance from last night that’s making the rounds on the Internet is even more proof that he needs to get back into the recording studio. It’s a mash-up/cover of “Cry Me a River” and “Ain’t No Sunshine” that he really sings the hell out of. His singing and his acting aren’t even in the same league, ya know? This is why we tolerated Justin in the first place. He’s mad sexy when he sings. Oh, girl and the dancing. Don’t you miss the dancing?

Come back to us, Original Justin Timberlake. We miss you.
