Mommy Blogger Gets 20 To Life

lacey

Lacey Spears, the mommy blogger accused of poisoning her 5 year old son with salt, has been convicted and sentenced to 20 years to life. Westchester County assistant district attorney Doreen Lloyd says Spears administered the final doses of salt into her son’s feeding tube while he was in hospital, and according to WFAA.com he suffered hours of “explosive bouts of diarrhea” when his body “tried to expel the poison”.

The BBC reports that Spears “administered salt into her son Garnett’s feeding tube from infancy while writing a blog about his illness”. Supreme Court Justice Robert Neary said Spears suffers from Munchausen by proxy syndrome and sentenced her to 20 years to life rather than the max 25 years, reducing the sentence due to her mental illness.

Weekands with tha Weegaaaanzz

Chris Wiegand, who brought us the amazing experience known as “American Blogger“, and his wife Casey, a blogger of course, are now starring in “Weekends With The Wiegands” on The Design Network.

There’s never a dull moment in the Wiegand household! Chris Wiegand, a filmmaker, and wife Casey, creator of the wildly popular Wiegands blog, have recently moved into a new house in Dallas where they’re eager to jump in and make it feel like home. Chris’s expert carpenter skills and wife Casey’s unique, artsy style are put to the test as they begin renovations.

Apparently these renovations include “a made-from-scratch chicken coop” so…yeah. Totally new stuff nobody else is doing. How do all these bloggers keep getting renovation shows? Didn’t we already go through this same thing with Jen Hatmaker?

Pink Peonies Had A Baby Shower And It Probably Cost More Than Your Wedding

Rachel Parcell, of the money tree Parcells, finally posted the details of her baby shower. It’s about as low key and tasteful as you’d expect from someone who thinks the ideal office space involves animal print rugs and pink high heels. Wearing her usual light touch of makeup and practical shoes, Rachel swept into the intimate gathering and began posing for the hired photographer.

The shower had about 9 gorillion acres of flower arrangements (pink and white peonies and roses of course), custom invitations, and a three course catered meal with a ‘gourmet’ bakery providing the requisite macarons.

Kim Kardashamormon held this baby bump blowout at her palatial Middlanowhere, UT estate, filling the grand ballroom with rented tables, chairs, and linens.  After putting away the gold, frankincense, and myrrh presented to her by her shower guests she tried to find something to do with all the flowers, settling on Bathroom and Purse Bouquets as the answer.

Open Post With Some WTF From The Intarwebs

For some reason this week felt way longer than it was – I feel like I haven’t posted in a month. You hamcats may or may not care, but my life lately is mostly a lot of dentist visits (hooray for insurance finally kicking in!) and then working 16 hour days to make up the days off. Between that and fitting in all the drinking the past three weeks have been something of a blur. But here are a few quick LOL WUTs for you to discuss. And it’s an open post – so bring up anything I missed in the comments if you’d like to front page discuss it.

Freelee the banana digestion machine is apparently in a legal war with another blogger/vlogger. I’m not 100% on what’s going on there other than apparently Freelee claims the Bikini Body chick is harming people with her diet ideas? I’m sure some of you Aussie hams can fill everyone in because I probably got that wrong.

The Disney Social Media Mom Celebration is underway and some moms want to tell those of you left out how to react. I lolsnorted pretty hard over the self-righteousness and superiority of this, but apparently it’s a big big deal for the Z list mommy bloggers.

Jordan Reid, of shillshackle sham ‘fame’, is moving to San Francisco Or Somewhere Around There. Evidently she’s finding the housing costs a total shocker, I assume because she doesn’t know how to use The Google, because everyone knows SF is more expensive than friggin NYC since it’s the ‘in’ place to live right now. Despite the fact that she is having zero luck finding the home she feels entitled to, she is explaining why she has to buy the home she wants.

And finally a source tells me that GOMI was a hot topic at the Texas Style Council. Saying bloggers were “acting like it was some badge of honor NOT to read the GOMI comments” the source went on to conclude “bloggers want to be celebrities yet don’t want any of the things that come with being a celebrity”. Well we know that, don’t we hams?!

So TGIF and YOLO hamflaps. Catch my pork filled buttocks on the gram! I’m about to start drinking so I’ll probably post my phone number there at some point. Or my feet. Or my cats. You really never know what will happen when I have a crap week ended with booze.

Kristen Howerton Invites You To Mock Your Children

umyeahasshole

Kristen Howerton, the wonderful human being behind “Rage Against The Minivan“, is cashing in on the latest parenting trend – shaming your children for comedic effect.

She has started up an instagram and a blog promoting her “A**hole Parents” hashtag. She put out a call on her own gram account, asking people to submit pictures. The images are basically children being children, because, ya know, how dare they. These pictures are then captioned by parents who are apparently tired of their little angels not being appropriately grateful or well-behaved 24/7.

I assume this is all supposed to be just hilarious to other parents, but it all comes off like a bunch of bitter martyrs wanting to whine about their kids refusing to act like adults. And I’m sure their kids will really appreciate being paraded as some kind of brat for the lols of the entire planet just so mommy could participate in a hashtag, but sure. Mommy solidarity or something.
