Brooke bites back
Brooke Shields has hit back at Tom Cruise and his comments about women who take medication for post-natal depression. A 700 word essay written by the star was published in the New York Times last week, stating ?I’m going to take a wild guess and say that Mr Cruise has never suffered from postpartum depression. To suggest that I was wrong to take drugs to deal with my depression, and that instead I should have taken vitamins and exercised shows an utter lack of understanding about postpartum depression and childbirth in general. If any good can come of Mr. Cruise’s ridiculous rant, let’s hope that it gives much-needed attention to a serious disease.” The article continues: “Experts estimate that one in 10 women suffer, usually in silence, with this treatable disease. We are living in an era of so-called family values, yet because almost all of the postnatal focus is on the baby, mothers are overlooked and left behind to endure what can be very dark times.” You go girl!
Nicole’s chimp worthy performance
Nicole Kidman isn?t known for being the most endearing of stars, but her recent performance at the Los Angeles zoo might make us change her tune. She was fooling around pretending to be a chimpanzee for the amusement of her children Isabella and Connor. When onlookers realised they were witness to a performance from an Oscar winning actress, they started to pay more attention and quite a crowd gathered. “When people noticed it was Nicole quite a crowd started to gather,” a spy reveals. “She brought along a video camera to film the chimps and was clearly having lots of fun – as were the kids. But the chimps just ignored her.”
