BabyTalk Magazine names 'Stinky Diaper Award' recipients

By_newbiz03_header_04 BabyTalk Magazine has gathered all the worst in pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting news to bring you the annual "Stinky Diaper Awards." This year’s winners include:

Bill Maher, for crushing pregnant women’s self-confidence. In the October issue of Men’s Health, Bill wrote, ”Being pregnant is sexy…You’re not sexy. You were sexy. That’s what got you pregnant."

Kevin Federline receives the "Dad got a Better Offer" award, for taking up with Britney Spears while Shar Jackson was still pregnant with her and Kevin’s son.

Elizabeth Hurley, for her post baby body ‘advice,’ which included her own personal regime of "eating very little breakfast, and not too much more lunch. [I only eat] tiny snacks in the day, like a banana or six raisins. The only meal I have is dinner."

Barbara Walters, for saying on the View that sitting near a nursing mother on an airplane made her "nervous and uncomfortable."

Jude Law, for being caught cheating on his fiancee with the nanny – by one of his own children!

And of course, this year’s big winner was Tom Cruise, for his "helpful critique" of women suffering from postpartum depression – particularly Brooke Shields – and their use of medications to help them regain their lives.

Do you agree or disagree with any of these? Like to add your own nominations?

Don’t even get me started on Bill Maher – there are so many reasons to give him a Stinky award; Kevin is the all-time golddigger and player; does he even REMEMBER he has children?; Elizabeth should have given more “healthy” advice, like eating, as an alternative to starvation; Barbara, who accepts and interviews just about anything/anyone but can’t handle a breastfeeding Mom?; Jude Law, a cheater busted by his own child – great parental example there, Jude; and, yes, the all-time Stinker IS Tom Cruise who has lost his mind, or never had it in the first place. I think the awards are right on the money! This is old news, but I would still put Billy Crudup in the running for leaving Mary-Louise Parker for Claire Danes while Mary was about to give birth to his child.
