The Bielankos Break Up

In news that will shock absolutely no one, click bait expert Monica Bielanko and her husband are separating.

For so long I’ve allowed myself to be this dysfunctional individual who struggles within a dysfunctional marriage, even going so far as to convince myself that couples who fight are normal, that Serge and I are charmingly dysfunctional…

Part of me doubts that Monica just came to her senses and turned into a rational adult all of a sudden, but she claims that’s pretty much what happened.

Several months ago, after another argument about who the hell knows what, it all just kind of bubbled up inside me…Our marriage sucks. And it has for a while now. I’ve been unhappy for a long time but have become so used to living this way I assumed this was it in life.

So it seems little Band-Aid Bielanko didn’t fix things after all. Does this mean they will finally close up their joint Babble column?

What I Wore Finally Announces Pregnancy

eyeroll

Jessica Quirk, running out of content, has finally publicly confirmed – she’s pregnant.

We’re expecting our first baby this summer! We could not be more thrilled with our happy news…On a hunch and a day late, I decided to run to the store to grab a pregnancy test on Christmas Eve – and that’s when we found out! What a happy holiday!!

I guess now that she can’t hide under big coats anymore she sort of HAD to announce it if she intends to continue doing What I Wore as a style blog. Saying “I’ll also be sharing some baby and pregnancy related posts from time to time” she explained that she was too tired for her first trimester to post outfit posts.

So at last Messica is pregnant and I think it’s highly likely that she will transition into lifestyle/mommy blogging. I’m sure the internet is eagerly awaiting What I Wore While Pregnant, and What My Baby Wore.

Love Taza Is Not Pregnant

Naomi, not pregnant, has announced on her blog that she is not pregnant, so everyone stop asking her.

why do people keep commenting on here and on instagram congratulating me on being pregnant or asking if i’m pregnant or trying to be the first person to discover that i’m pregnant?

i am not pregnant. i wish i was pregnant. but i am not pregnant.

Saying “winter was just really delicious”, she proceeded to empty her brain out over her keyboard in a long post that basically said it’s mean to speculate whether an extremely popular married mommy blogger is pregnant because, privacy.

i like to share, but then again, i also like being private…we women have a great power within us to build each other up, but sometimes human nature gets in the way and we kind of tear each other down through gossip or politics or critique instead…we’re all struggling with something, and we all deserve a kinder and gentler interaction with one another.

You know, a simple response of “nope, not pregnant!” to those who ask on instagram would suffice. Instead we get 5,000 words that basically tell people to be nice to her and respect her privacy. I’m sorry honey, but you sold your privacy up the river when you decided to turn your life into a “brand”. If you can’t handle speculation and gossip maybe it’s time to shut it down before you get even more famous.

“MOB Society” Will Tell You What Makes A Man

Uh, wut

MOB Society, a website for “moms of boys”, wants to remind you mothers that you shouldn’t chide your son for getting dirty – you should encourage it, because men are supposed to do all the dirty work.

What are men made of? The ability to handle dirt and hard jobs. Jobs most of us women don’t want to do…In Genesis I’m pretty sure that while Adam was off getting messy with the animals, Eve was getting a tan—after all no tan lines!

Saying “your future daughter-in-law will thank you some day” if you cheer your sons for “getting too dirty, yelling too loudly, or making a mess”, she reminds you ladies to “[t]hank your husband today for getting his hands dirty on you and your family’s behalf”. Because everyone knows real men love being loud and filthy, and women enjoy sunbathing and making babies, I guess.
