I cannot believe those lists. Liv Tyler is an enviable mom and so is J.K. Rowling. I think that Gwyneth and Kelly Ripa are not mom’s I envy. Gwyneth is always putting her foot in her mouth saying something bad about her country.

I contend most people are envious not of celebrities actual mothering skills but of their resources. I find it refreshing Gwyneth isn’t yet another prophet of false patriotism. All jingoists should start by balancing out our low recruitment levels. Fill the ranks cannon fodder!

I cannot believe that Courtney Love did not make list #2.

I envy Kelly Ripa. I think she’s a great mom. She’s always talking about things she’s done w/ her kids and I always see her in the mags out and about w/ them.

one I don’t envy is Angelina jolie for I wouldn’t want to lead the life she leads. I think it’s got to be hard to be her and I wouldn’t want all that attention. I am not talking about her mother skills I am just talking about the baggage that comes w/ it.

I think the only reason I envy Jen Garner is the fact she is married to Ben Afleck!! I do not envy Kelly Ripa at all. Maybe a little…okay…yeah, Mark Consuelos is a hottie. I envy Angelina Jolie the most though. I know she isn’t on either list, but I just think even with all the attention she gets she is amazing, has a great life, a great guy, and a great family. The only reason I would envy Brit at all is to be that young again! I can’t believe Liv Tyler made the not envied list!!!
