Yesterday Minka Kelly was pretty much everywhere because of her being named Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive. While I was reading through the coverage I came across this headline from Star.
Minka Kelly: From Stripper's Daughter to Jeter's Girlfriend
So, basically Minka Kelly has nothing to be proud of in this world except for the fact that she managed to raise herself up from being the daughter of a stripper to the girlfriend of a baseball player. What is this saying to women? Hey, guess what, you have the chance to become a WAG. They make it seem like this should be the ultimate goal for a woman. WTF kind of headline is this?
Remember this is a story that should be highlighting the Esquire award and her acting, but instead the first paragraph says, "Minka Kelly's boyfriend is one of the highest paid major league baseball stars — and her various TV roles have pulled in a pretty penny — but growing up the only child of a stripper mom, money was often tight." So, the first thing they mention is Derek Jeter and how rich he is. Yes, they acknowledge her acting roles kind of, but they reinforce Derek in the next paragraph. "My mom lived a fast life," Derek Jeter’s brown-eyed gal pal tells Esquire."
We got it. She is Derek Jeter's girlfriend and she should feel lucky. Who wrote this? Even the picture they use (above) has Derek Jeter. Does Minka not have her own identity? Am I seeing things wrong?
