Star editorial-something Bonnie Fuller came out of crappy circulation-induced hiding today to blog a few words of gratitude to Britney Spears and Angelina Jolie, and not for providing the fodder that seven-figure salary packages and wardrobe allowances are made of! See, watching Britney and Angelina makes her feel like such a good mom! "Every time that our girl Brit cluelessly tries to whitestrip her toddler's teeth instead of brushing them or runs a red light with the court-appointed monitor and her two sons all strapped in her car," Bonnie writes, "[she] "lessens the burden of guilt for working mothers." As for Angie? "Oh, so maybe we didn't whip up homemade Halloween costumes, but at least we haven't schlepped our kids to three different pre-schools around the globe in the past year." Also: "my husband who actually raises my kids tells me he gets a similar sensation every time he stands in a line flipping through celebrity tabloids and he sees a lady hitting her kid. It makes him feel so much less guilty for buying sugar cereal! And if the lady is black he feels less guilty about slavery too."
Okay so I made up that last part. But you sorta get the gist!
