OK, this shit is nasty. For the last g-ddamned time, we are not animals, we should not eat each other, and we should definitely not chew our cud and feed our kids like f-cking birds. Or cows. Because? All together now: WE ARE NOT F-CKING ANIMALS.
Alicia Silverstone is under fire for posting this video of her, obviously, chewing up her food and spitting it into her son’s mouth. Doctors have immediately responded, saying that she’s gross and f-cked in the head and people should never, ever feed another person from their mouths:
Dr. Jennifer Landa, M.D Chief Medical Officer of BodyLogicMD, told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column, “There are those who think that a mom chewing a baby’s food provides helpful enzymes from her mouth but it doesn’t seem like a hygienic practice. Various viruses and bacteria, but especially herpes virus, may be passed from mother to baby.”
Alicia had this to say, as if this business is normal in most worlds:
“I just had a delicious breakfast of miso soup, collards and radish steamed and drizzled with flax oil, cast iron mochi with nori wrapped outside, and some grated daikon. Yum! I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup…from my mouth to his. It’s his favorite…and mine. He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I’m eating. This video was taken about a month or 2 ago when he was a bit wobbly. Now he is grabbing my mouth to get the food!”
First of all, I don’t even know what half of that food shit is. Second? Is this something we really want to be teaching a new generation, because I’m telling you right now – if some young shithead runs clear across a restaurant to attack my mouth while I’m eating because something I’ve got in there looks good, I don’t care who’s kid it is – they’re getting punched, dude.
But honestly. Messed up or not messed up? Does this chick have perfect teeth? No open sores in her mouth? No cavities, no chance that there could be any kind of infection or bacteria or disease breeding in there? Damn. Because if so, she’s got a leg to stand on (unless she wants to chew that up and spit it out, too), even though … never mind. No she doesn’t. This is flat-out disgusting and I just cannot wait to hear what the general response is going to be to this. Is this supposed to be part of her “famed” Kind Diet?
So much for dinner.

Sarah linked you to this story last afternoon, but I feel the need to go more in depth with this. I feel the need to talk about my feelings. Is that ok?
Alicia Silverstone recently gave birth to that baby she’s been toting around, and not a moment too soon. It was a healthy baby boy, everyone’s happy – great story, right? But no. Alicia had to twist this happy little story to ridiculousness by naming her child Bear Blu. Do you love it?
Here was my thought process when I saw this: “Bear Blu. Bear in the Big Blue House. Bear in the Big Blue House was a stupid show. Blue’s Clues, now that was a quality show. With Steve hosting, of course, not the other guy. Man, I had such a crush on Steve when I was a kid.” Here’s where I’ll stop, because you don’t need to know my further thoughts on the host of Blue’s Clues, but you see where I’m going with this? I just think it would be nice if the first thought that came to mind when you introduce your baby to the world was something more like “aww, baby!” and less like “Nickelodeon had some quality children’s programming” or “wait, isn’t that a nationality, not a name?”

So I know it’s, like, mad rude and really unfair to make fun of pregnant women, and I want to put it out there up front that that’s SO not what this post is about: it’s about me, of course, and how these pictures are positively great birth control for anyone who is not quite ready to have a (or in my case, another) child.
Alicia Silverstone, bless her heart, looks haggard, tired, and definitely not the blushing, rosy-cheeked mother earth that so many women claim they are during their pregnancies. And Alicia? I totally feel you. IT’S NORMAL. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I was bloated, swollen, cranky, tired, achy, and a whole cornucopia of other really wretched, probably hard-to-be-around things. And you know what, guys? I was happy as hell to no longer be pregnant after my sweet blessing of a daughter was born. I love children, my pregnancy was happily planned and executed, and I’m so thankful for the experience – but I am NOT one of those women who just thrives on being pregnant, and I never will be.
So this? For the family members who are out to get me pregnant by osmosis and won’t take the hint that I’M just not ready to host another living being inside my body for the next nine months? Is my birth control. End of story, I win, you lose.

It makes me feel really old that I feel like I have to explain to a younger generation who Alicia Silverstone is. Like, I swear, little kids, she used to be really, really relevant, and we all thought she was going to be a big movie star with staying power, like Meryl Streep or Demi Moore, and the she proceeded to piss it all away by making a mindblowingly large number of terrible movies all in a row. It’s actually possible that she hasn’t made a single good movie since Clueless. (I am not open to the possibility that Clueless was not a good movie. As if!)
Anyhoo, Alicia’s been a vegan, like, forever, and now she has a book about it. It’s called The Kind Diet, and it’s about subsisting on really, really good weed. No I’m kidding. That’s the book Jennifer Aniston’s working on. Alicia’s book is about eating vegan, which means no dairy or meat. It’s actually a very healthy way to eat and it is much kinder to animals and the environment. I ate a pure vegan diet for awhile, and it was the best I’ve ever felt in my whole life. And then I stopped and now I have pre-diabetes and I basically have to eat meat even though it completely grosses me out when I have to do so. Even fish. But apparently I’m going to die of insulin shock if I don’t eat meat; at least that’s what the doctors say.
If you don’t feel like you can spend money on a book Alicia Silverstone wrote about anything, try picking up The China Study instead. It’s a purely scientific book (i.e. no animal rights angle) about the physical and environmental benefits of a vegan diet.

I have to admit, I like this FunnyOrDie vid Alanis Morissette and Alicia Silverstone did poking fun at indie flicks. But you know what’s going to be even funnier? The actual feature film Alanis is doing with Lindsay Lohan. I’m just saying.

Oh, sadness upon sadness.
“I have heard nothing about this whatsoever,” said Silverstone’s publicist, Elizabeth Much. “I would certainly be very surprised if this rumor has any truth to it.”
But THEN they called Amy Heckerling’s rep — you’ll recall that Heckerling wrote the original Clueless and was rumored to be working with Alicia on the sequel — and she was a bit more mysterious: “Officially, no comment,” she said.
Hmmmm. Is this just Amy Heckerling trying to drum up some buzz for herself, or could there be an UNOFFICIAL draft in the works???
