One of my favorite things about celebrities is how often they make announcements about making announcements. Probably my favorite example of this is that time that crazy Michael Lohan chose to make a statement saying that he would no longer be making statements about Lindsay, but Seal did this too, remember? He made his own statement to talk about why he keeps talking about his and Heidi‘s divorce. It’s crazy to me, but it always cracks me up.
On all the rumors: “I feel like I’m in the eye of the tornado. It’s emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. And then the outside world doing all this craziness—with you wanting it or not wanting it—is another tornado. But as hard as it is, so is life.”
On keeping quiet: “People don’t need to know who did what. I don’t want to talk positively or negatively about the ups and downs that we had. Every couple goes through things. Unfortunately, we’re in the public, so the highs are out there. But I don’t think it’s necessary—especially for our children—to have the lows being printed in magazines and talked about. I’m a lioness. I have four cubs. I’m a mom. I want to take care of my kids and protect them. I don’t want to talk about them, or him, or me.”
On when she feels the most beautiful: “To be honest, it’s with my children. In my job, people tell you that all the time: ‘This shoot was great. You look amazing.’ But you never know what they say when you turn away. But the kids don’t edit anything. When they kiss you and tell you they love you and say, ‘Mama, you’re the best’—that’s really the only thing you care about.”
On Seal’s recent behavior: “He’s a grown man. I can’t tell him what to do and what not to do. It’s hard.”
On her seemingly perfect marriage: “To the outside world, you don’t really share all the things that happen. You kind of share just the most amazing sides. But I don’t really want to get into any of that stuff. With my life, my family, my business — I want to go forward. I feel like already there are so many things being said about us — about him, about me. I’m not going to comment. Otherwise it makes you angry. You can’t always call and say, ‘This is not true, but this part is true.’”
I can’t believe I live in a world where I have to do this, but … Team Heidi! Ugh.
