Speaking Of Placentas, Tori Spelling Is Pregnant Again


Tori Spelling announced yesterday that she was pregnant. I think she was upset that with bigger, higher profile celebrities announcing their pregnancy that no one was noticing that she also had a bump. I think people also forgot she had a baby and if they saw the bump just assumed she was still pregnant with whatever number baby she had before. So, to make sure everyone knew she is pregnant she went ahead and released a statement and now she is happy that she is the center of attention until someone who ranks higher than D list says they are also pregnant or Lindsay Lohan gets arrested, whatever comes first.

I'm still scarred from the nipple tweet. Be careful this time, Dean. Please.

kj said...

why does this remind me of the old groucho quip about his cigar?

timebob said...

maybe they think the more babies they have the more Candy Spelling will leave them in the will.

nolachickee said...

Does Dean have a pregnant lady fettish?

Was Tori scarred from growing up in that gargantuan mansion with only her parents and the one brother?

Majik said...

Jeezus, would people just stop having more than two kids???? The planet is too crowed...use some goddamned common sense!!It takes two of you to make one....you may have TWO, tops. If you're a single parent and want a biological child, you may have ONE (but in either case if you're adopting, you may adopt as many as you wish). I will never know why people are so damned arrogant to think their genetic material is sooooo important that it needs to be repeatedly perpetuated. Newsflash...it's not.

This is my life said...

That picture terrifies me! And that is all I have to say about this.

Majik said...

crowed=crowded

GrowFarmington said...

at least they can provide for their children, but yeah, zero population growth would be nice.

jgirl828 said...

Didn't she just have a baby a few months ago?
....sounds like this baby wasn't planned!

Court said...

Dean is lookin' rouuuuugh :-/

firebugDVM said...

Wasn't this a blind item recently? Woman wanted to leave her hubby and found out she was unexpectedly pregnant. They were the popular guess although the fact that they had a young baby was holding people back...

jbeebs said...

Dean looks exhausted. Too many kids too soon, is such a strain on a marriage.

:| raven |: said...

i used to think she was really pretty back in the day but her face looks more and more plastic every time i see her. @Court - agreed ... he is looking wiped out.

i agree w/ Majik ... stop having babies!!

there is nothing "unexpected" about getting pregnant if you're having sex without some form of birth control - he is as equally responsible.

oy!

chopchop said...

I cannot believe what I'm reading. People are upset because a married couple are having children?? Get a fucking grip.

Signed,
Mother of FOUR children

CandiCanee said...

@chopchop Cosigned by mother of two. Shes married & has the means to take care of her children why in the hell is it wrong for her to have 4 kids. Pretty sure this one isnt going to make us start putting ppl on the moon.

Davesmuse said...

I'm with you, Chop Chop. I wonder which of my three children would be deemed unneccessary. Damn busybodies.

meredith said...

Agree with the last several comments. I'm a married mama of 3.

Jasmine said...

This is what I wrote on fb when I heard about this yesterday:

Okay...I know this is gonna get me in trouble but I am always appalled when I read this type of stuff. Yes, there is nothing wrong with having kids but for gosh sakes- let your body HEAL first before having another! It just gives me vibes of old fashioned era ala when women were really seen as baby machine makers and little else. To pump out baby after baby in so short a period of time makes me feel like it's a step back for the women's movement where women are struggling to be seen as separate from their uterus. All she's really doing is ignoring her health and body to have more procreation happening. To me she is putting babies before her own mental/physical self. And that's ick nast.

AKM said...

Agree with the last four. Of all the things you could say about those two, I think it's pretty clear that they love being parents and they're pretty good at it. Their children are beautiful and they've got the means to take beyond-excellent care of them. Let 'em be.

Jasmine said...

Also, what you do with your body SHOULD and IS your business but we are all one human race living on one planet, and as such having too many kids (and yes I think 4 is too many)is just ignoring the current situation we're all in right now. Over developement/rain forests plowed back to make room for more people and more cows to feed more people/millions starving because not enough resources to go around/environment suffering etc....wanting people to procreate less is a matter of being culturally conscious as a whole, and I dont see anything wrong with that.

chopchop said...

See, Jasmine, this is what pisses me off about the whole women's movement. Why is it a bad thing if a woman wants to "churn out babies"? Just because *you* wouldn't want to have children that close together doesn't mean other women don't as well. Isn't the whole point of the women's movement to open up the possibilities for women? For women to be able to choose to work OR stay at home? It always has seemed to me that oftentimes women look down on those of us who choose to stay at home rather than work ... the whole point is that it's OUR CHOICE. Don't think of it as a step back. Think of it as SOMEONE ELSE'S DECISION. And support it because she's a woman and she made that choice for herself.

FS said...

Tori and Dean have decided it's up to them to single handedly make sure America stays a white majority country.


;)

Paisley said...

How do we know this one was planned? She just had a baby five months ago and is now on her way to having "Irish twins." A lot of people are under the impression that you can't get pregnant while breastfeeding. It's wrong and I have the cousins to prove it (born 11 months apart).

Principessa said...

Wasn't Tori the popular guess (or possibly even revealed as solved on the fb page) for the blind about the pregnant woman who was publicly consuming glass after glass of wine while the expectant father kept filling her up? Can't remember if that was her first or second pregnancy but there were FAS rumors after the child was born as well. If she's still doing that, then no, she doesn't need to constantly be getting pregnant. But they do seem to be comitted parents so I feel pretty meh about this. However, there are some folks who really need to stop having many, many kids. I don't think people should be "capped" at 1 or 2, after all I'm one of 3 kids, but if you can't afford em, stop birthing em. This is why there needs to be more funding for Planned Parenthood, so people have access to birth control, educations, and if necessary, yes, abortions.

Principessa said...

Sorry, to clarify, it was a Lainey blind from a few years ago, not an Enty blind.

yeahwhatever said...

Add me to the "bothered" list. I'm a mom of four kids and would like to think that I'm raising them to be environmentally conscious and productive citizens and caretakers of our Earth.

My husband is a photovoltaic engineer and serves on international panels responsible for setting the standards for development and implementation of technology in the solar industry. So, other than skipping showers, buying organic apples and recycling paper bags, what are *you* childless judgmental b*tches doing on a global scale to conserve resources and help reduce our dependency on fossil fuels??? Right, you're sitting on your arse, computer on lap and diligently refilling your BC Rx's. Bravo for being such a good steward of our planet.

I'm pretty sure I'm not in a position to judge whether another human being has a right to exist. I've known many parents with *one* child who seem, from my humble and limited perspective to be a waste of space and resources but the fact remains that I have ZERO ability or right to judge the usefulness of said person or family. Hopefully, my excessive "genetic contributions" will be kinder and more open-minded souls than many on here. At least they will grow up in a family of doers rather than talkers. Sheesh.

Anotheramy said...

I have no love for her, and dont know anything about him. I think shes probably about as ugly on the inside as she is on the outside. However, they're married, to each other. Double points. They get triple points for selling the mansion and moving into a "normal" house. If normal costs 2 million.

Spike Ghost said...

they both look exhausted... damn!

evergrey said...

I'm with @chopchop, @yeahwhatever etc. They're a married, their children actually seem happy and they look to be a normal family. Good for her.

I also highly doubt this one was planned but at least they are taking it in stride and making the best of it. Good for them and I wish them the best. The end.

Sherry said...

I thought the blind was about Jennifer Garner and Ben.

I too chose not to have kids due to the world being over populated. But I love that I had a choice.

Texshan said...

I think the "ZOMG the world is overpopulated already" people don't really understand the whole situation with world overpopulation.

The "world" isn't overpopulated. Certain parts of it are because of a lack of resources. Those parts do not include North America. North America has the food and other resources (if not the government programs) to support many, many more people than we currently have. It's places like Asia and Africa that are actually overpopulated.

You could argue that we as North Americans use up too much of the world's resources, but, with the exception of oil, that's not really the case. We overproduce food, for instance.

North Americans with the means to support their children aren't hurting anyone or anything by having large families. In fact, with today's declining birth rates, the few who decide to have more than two kids are actually helping "cover the losses" for people like me, who can't/don't have kids.

Finally, I'd be willing to bet that the same people who are pissed off at Tori and Dean are the same people who say that it's no one else's business if a woman chooses to have an abortion. You can't have it both ways -- if having an abortion is a private decision that no one else should get to have an opinion about, so is choosing to have a baby.

auntliddy said...

I think because she had lonely childhood she wants to have big happy family. Its their business, she seems to work hard, and they take good care of their children. I wish them well. Her having four babies is not going to cause a population shift for godsakes!!

Majik said...

@yeahwhatever....what am I doing on a global scale to conserve resources and help reduce our dependency on fossil fuels? Um, NOT HAVING CHILDREN reduces my carbon footprint more than anything you and your family do, can do, or will do.

~one childless judgmental Bitch.

Vicki Cupper said...

Good lord she's starting to look like Eric Stoltz in Mask.

Geebz said...

well as long as one owns the 'childless, judgmental bitchiness', you can't be mad!
;)

yeahwhatever said...

@Majik-

I'm not concerned whatsoever with what you do or don't do with your womb. I'm a "glass half full" sort of a gal and as a person with means I'd rather contribute educated young people to the planet who can assist in solving our problems as a species rather than just give up and go home.

Like somebody else already mentioned, much of the developed world has a declining birth rate while 3rd world countries have an increasing birth rate; these children often live in abject poverty and lack the means to receive the necessary education and opportunities that we have in North America to become problem SOLVERS. It's not simply a matter of reducing one's carbon footprint but those of us with the means should be working on creating and implementing ways of improving the quality of life for future generations, no?

Your choice is not global, it's individual and statistically meaningless. Most Americans who choose to remain childless have other overriding motivations for their choice and if they don't, they should, as they don't really understand the complexities of the issue. I'd not want to be born to a mother who felt guilty for my presence because her concern for her carbon footprint was so great. Neuroses that intense and motherhood do not a good combination make, so...I support your decision.

Let's call Tori and tell her not to feel shameful about her latest pregnancy on the grounds that you are choosing to remain childless, shall we?

yeahwhatever said...

forgot to say, i do actually appreciate when one self-identifies as a B*itch and has the balls to capitalize it. I like that in a person.

i'm also not opposed to population control. like, there is a surplus of "judgmental b*tches" right here in the U.S. and any plan to control the population is one I can get behind! hehe.

Maja. With a J. said...

I guess I just don't understand why anyone would want more than one, maybe two kids in their house. Seriously. I was just at the grocery store, and there were a bunch of tweens running around, smelling of dirty socks and making noise. It was terrifying, and quite gross.

That's the thing...they may be cute little things when they're small and you can dress them up like dolls and they can validate the shit out of you, but then puberty happens. And it's nasty. Imagine having two or three teenager AT THE SAME TIME *shudder*.

@yeahwhatever - great posts!

Monica said...

Totally agree with chop chop and yeahwhatever. Im a mom of 2 and i love every minute of it.

I wish people (male and female alike) would stop trying to tell other women what to do with our bodies. Have a baby or have an abortion - THATS MY BUSINESS.

yeahwhatever said...

Thanks. I have brief moments of clarity where I can articulate my thoughts in between waiting to be impregnated yet again so I can further destroy the planet. ;) The evil plotting takes a lot out of me but oh, the complete disregard for mother earth is SUCH A RUSH.

Anyway, my husband is in one of the aforementioned 3rd world countries working right now so producing my child army for personal validation will have to wait!

Chrissy Buns said...

Married mommy of four here (would have been 3, but those pesky twins!) We had more than 2 because we love and enjoy children, and we enjoy parenting. We don't think our DNA is superior or any such nonsense.

That being said, dayumn! Let your body heal Tori! I'm sure it was an unexpected pregnancy, but they know how the process works now, maybe they will get a handle on the situation ;)

Henriette said...

I agree with Chop Chop, Yeahwhatever, and Texshan. The overpopulation argument is faulty on many levels. Industrialized nations are having major population declines.

I also agree that you can't have it both ways, terminating a pregnancy versus having a child. These are suppose to be valid options for all. If I (politically and legally) allow another woman to terminate her pregnancy than that woman should be able to understand me having my child.

I don't buy that an accidental pregnancy, which this sounds like, is throwing women back to the stone age! That is a major stretch. Tori is not a Duggar yet. This is not her tenth kid.

Also, not all birth control works all the time. I know a lot of people who had accidental pregnancies due to malfunctioning birth control.

CandiCanee said...

@YeahWhatever - Somehow you expressed a lot of what I was thinking but was way too irritated to say. Im an "irish twin" & very thankful that my mother wasnt as concerned with destroying the planet by giving birth to me.

dia papaya said...

Here here sister friend!

You said this better than I could. No children for me. Why would I want to do that to myself? Get fat, stretch out important bits, alien parasite feeding off me??? Not appealing at all!

Fine - have 2, 3, 4 babies. I don't care. I'll be out having adventures while you're doing the diapers bit and saving for college.

I'm sure I'll get slammed for this too but wanted to support the other non-mothers.

yeahwhatever said...

oh my...

@dia papaya - I won't get into the miraculous wonder that is the vagina but I guarantee you that birthing a baby won't stretch out your lady parts beyond recognition or render you permanently fat or disfigured. I've birthed and nursed four "parasites" and am easily in better shape than most childless 25-year-olds and know a handful of other moms who are, too. I live in CA by the beach and still wear bikinis, hon. That's why I keep having kids - I look so irresistible, LOL. I've never breastfed an alien, though and am not into *that* - I'm sure it's different.

You can "do the diapers" after you've f*cked around long enough and had enough "adventures," I promise. I'v even had the pleasure of meeting mothers who were able to live happy and fulfilling lives when they became mothers earlier in life than they had planned. It's something called perspective and it comes with age and experience. The funny thing is that children are actually PEOPLE who don't stay in diapers for too long and will gladly accompany you on your adventures. You were once a child, too. Amazing, right?

Not all women who choose to become mothers are boring, ugly hags working 2 jobs to save for college. Maybe you can even be bright enough to have your parasites' college paid for before they are born like some of us have. Don't limit yourself.

I support my fellow childless ladies, too, like most of the mothers on this site. It's not a damn competition and there's no right or wrong way to live but parenthood is something to be respected- PERIOD. It's HARD and more rewarding than you have the ability to grasp at this point in your life, clearly.

I don't care if my own children choose to procreate or not but they better DAMN WELL show equal respect for women regardless and basing a decision to avoid motherhood due your own vanity is beyond me. Phew, girl. My son ever brings somebody like you home and I'll show you the door and slap him upside the head. (If you are between the ages of 17 and 23 like I suspect you are than I'll forgive your ignorance and be grateful most women your age are more evolved.)

When your last sentence reads, "I'm sure I'll get slammed..." that's a clue that everything written prior is likely garbage and you should delete it prior to looking a FOOL. FYI.

LynGBH said...

What yeahwhatever said...and this is, perhaps, the freakiest faced couple I've ever seen. Hers is all lumpy and weird and his looks strangely vertically stretched. Neither are hideously ugly...just, ya' know...strange.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I was only coming to make the Irish twin crack, but too late, huh?

In any event, I agree with chopchop, texshan, yeahwhatever (amazing schtuff, lady) etc.

Personally, I think it's my duty as a reasonably intelligent person to have children. We definitely don't want Idiocracy to become reality, now do we? I didn't think so.

Henriette said...

I think dia papaya is a troll. Don't feed it.

ooopsitsme said...

Nice.... You know I never get over how hard my jaw hits the ground when I hear a reasonably intelligent every day kind of person touting Eugenics bullshit.

There is enough food!

Simple fact, if the planet cannot support us, we would not be here.
People starve in poor countries because of man made boundaries, politics (power hungry warlords and dicktators and GREEDY RICH NATIONS.

Now how is it that people starve in yours?

Every person is of great worth,
say it with me now ... " I will love my own kind " I might even have room in my heart to love all of God's creatures but if that is too much for you at least love your own species

They look more shattered than life itself. He also looks shell-shocked. Which probably sums the entire thing up.

luckylass said...

ooopsitsme, "if the planet cannot support us, we would not be here" is not a completely accurate statement. In population ecology, there are things called time lags, in which a population does not respond immediately to something like lack of food, crowding, and widespread disease. All of the these above mentioned things (and more) are major impacts of populations when they come close or have exceeded their carrying capacity (google it). There are many examples of this occurring in nature and in lab conditions. Populations don't grow exponentially forever, eventually they fall, and oftentimes crash (depending how far they exceed carrying capacity) The question is, of course, have we exceeded our carrying capacity?. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Population_curve.svg

chopchop said...

God DAMN @yeahwhatever your posts are fucking AWESOME.

And LMFAO (the F stands for FAT) at people who assume I'm broke & bored because I have many children. Not quite, honey.

Melissa said...

@Maja, sorry about your frightening and disgusting encounter. Funny, I run into many more smelly ADULTS that are more apt to scare the hell out of me just entering a Walmart.

Having more than ONE TWEEN/TEENAGER AT A TIME! NO, say it isn't so! Yep, I'm a breeder and have three teenage boys...TRIPLETS, no less. They are neither smelly (usually) nor scary (ever). They are intelligent, talented, charming, polite, respectful and "hygienic" individuals that I am proud to claim as my sons and I enjoy spending time with them immensely. Usually more than I do with my adult friends and acquaintances. It's not that everyone shouldn't have multiple children, just those that allow them to grow up to be smelly and scary, right?

Generally, you raise your kids to be people you would enjoy being around, so fear not! If you had several kids, I'm sure you'd probably like a few of them. ;-o

Denise said...

Thank you. As a former "career girl" who gave thay up to be a stay at home mom, I can't believe the flack I get for it. The movement was about " choice."

if she is a good mother and can provide for her children and isnt concerned about resting her uterus, then good for her. What concerns me are the mothers of 2+ children on welfare wgo keep having children. I am all about welfare used for it how was designed, but stop having kids if you can't afford them. That's who is irresponsible, not Tori spelling. And I can't stand.the bitch.

luckylass said...

Denise, you said it very well and I couldn't agree more: "What concerns me are the mothers of 2+ children on welfare wgo keep having children. I am all about welfare used for it how was designed, but stop having kids if you can't afford them. That's who is irresponsible"

Get a damn clue will you!
that graph you pointed to is attached to the profoundly stupid comment of the total world population of all persons living past,present and future being 1.2 trillion. This appalling assumption is based on the same formula for guessing the number of german war tanks.IDIOTS!

and the way you flip flop like a dying fish with the " Yea dem single mums are bad, how dare they and their kids suck down my oxygen..... go back to sucking up to elitist scum, by the way your not on the tiny list of maybe 500 million out of 7 billion, to be saved (probably more like 100 million)

Whatever the future holds in store, we are in this together. That's how solutions need to be made and applied... TOGETHER.

I PERSONALLY WILL NEVER ACCEPT or buy into some bullshit elitist plan to mass murder on the hope of some utopian lie.

from The Population Bomb - revisited

Retrospectively, Ehrlich believes that The Population Bomb was "way too optimistic".[9]

However, many critics have disputed Ehrlich's central thesis about overpopulation and its effects on the environment and human society, his solutions, as well as some of his specific predictions, as presented in numerous books, articles and public appearances since the late 1960s.
Wheat yields in developing countries, 1950 to 2004, kg/HA baseline 500

One frequent criticism focuses on Ehrlich's allegedly alarmist tone and sensational statements.

Ehrlich has made a number of statements or "predictions" in a variety of settings that have turned out to be false. Ronald Bailey of Reason Magazine has called him an "irrepressible doomster ... who, as far as I can tell, has never been right in any of his forecasts of imminent catastrophe."[18]

On the first Earth Day in 1970, he warned that "[i]n ten years all important animal life in the sea will be extinct. Large areas of coastline will have to be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish."[18]

In a 1971 speech, he predicted that: "By the year 2000 the United Kingdom will be simply a small group of impoverished islands, inhabited by some 70 million hungry people ... If I were a gambler, I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000."[18]

When this scenario did not come to pass, he responded that "When you predict the future, you get things wrong. How wrong is another question. I would have lost if I had had taken the bet. However, if you look closely at England, what can I tell you? They're having all kinds of problems, just like everybody else."[18]

Ehrlich wrote in The Population Bomb that, "India couldn't possibly feed two hundred million more people by 1980."[13]

A common reply to this criticism is that it was precisely the alarmist rhetoric that prevented the catastrophes he warned of.

Carl Haub of the Population Reference Bureau has said, "It makes no sense that Ehrlich is now criticized as being alarmist because his dire warnings did not, in the main, come true. But it was because of such warnings from Ehrlich and others that countries took action to avoid potential disaster."[19]

In the 1960s and 70s when Ehrlich made many of his most alarming warnings, many respected population experts, politicians, and scientists agreed with even his most pessimistic estimates.

There was a widespread belief among experts that population growth presented an extremely serious threat to the future of human civilization,[12] although differences existed regarding the severity of the situation, and how to approach it.

Some have criticized Ehrlich's proposed solutions to the problems he describes. For example, Barry Commoner criticized his 1970 statement that "When you reach a point where you realize further efforts will be futile, you may as well look after yourself and your friends and enjoy what little time you have left. That point for me is 1972."[20]

Dan Gardner, among others,[14] has criticized him for endorsing the strategies to avoid the worst effects of famine that William and Paul Paddock proposed in their book Famine 1975! They had proposed a system of "triage" that would cut off food aid to "hopeless" countries such as India and Egypt. In Population Bomb

Ehrlich suggests that "there is no rational choice except to adopt some form of the Paddocks' strategy as far as food distribution is concerned." Had this strategy been implemented, in countries such as India and Egypt, which were reliant on food aid at that time, they would almost certainly have been plunged into famines.[12] As it turned out, both Egypt and India have greatly increased their food production and now feed much larger populations without reliance on food aid.[14]
