Let's play a little game. I'll give you a celebrity quotation, and you guess what she's talking about, okay? Ready?
Molly Sims told reporters on Friday, "It's literally the hardest thing I've ever done."
Your turn: What is "it"? Childbirth? Nope. Climbing Mount Everest? Negative. Surviving for a month on food stamps? Ha! Yeah right. In fact, M-Dog was talking about losing her baby weight. Explained Sims, "You have to think about a baby first, and you have to get off all of that fat and weight -- and that's a whole thing on its own." Okay. First of all, no one has to get off "all that fat and weight," though I understand it's a reasonable goal for many. But if that is literally the hardest thing she's ever done, then I am literally thrilled for her and hope that she literally never has to go through anything more grueling than her little diet. And before any mommies jump down my throat, know that I've been there (yes, I kiss my kid with this mouth). Sure, it isn't fun to worry about fitting into your clothes, and I was as motivated as the next person to get back to my pre-baby size. But can we can take it easy, Molly? Having a healthy child with whom you can spend time as you wish in between workouts for which you can afford to hire a babysitter sounds like pretty sweet privilege to me. Lest I be too harsh on her, though, I should point out that Molly offered this soundbite to reporters at the launch party for Tracy Anderson's DVD "The Pregnancy Project," as Tracy is Molly's trainer -- and that explains a lot. After all, Tracy Anderson is the nightmare who tells women to eat baby food and who recently said, "A lot of women use pregnancy as an excuse to let their bodies go, and that's the worst thing." Really? Is it LITERALLY the worst thing? It seems that Anderson has infected Sims not only with her affection for starvation but also with her misuse of superlatives. Money well spent, Molly!
