SPORTS GAL'S RANT
If I were a single woman who wanted to start a family, I can't think of a better sperm donor than Tom Brady. That's what bugs me about this whole Bridget Moynahan thing. She's wealthy and beautiful and famous (I'd throw talented in there, but I saw "I Robot"), and now, she has a super-baby. But she doesn't have dignity. I was aghast when I saw the OK Magazine cover
with Bridget's sad face and the headline "Life Without Daddy." I'm not sure if she remembers reading the paper when it announced that she and Tom broke up because he wasn't interested in starting a family and she was. Or that she miraculously got pregnant a few weeks later. I don't like to think the worst of people, but yeeeesh.
How could anyone think Tom is the "bad guy" here? Let's say I didn't want to start trying for Baby No. 2 until after July '07 because I was in a friend's wedding that month, and I didn't want to be the potbellied, can't-drink-booze bridesmaid who pees every 45 minutes because she's drinking water to stay hydrated during a 90-degree outdoor ceremony. And let's say I wanted to have the kid during a non-busy sports time when Bill wasn't overwhelmed by NBA playoffs, March Madness or Red Sox-Yankees. And let's say Bill screwed up the timetable, so I carried a fetus during the hot L.A. summer and had the baby during the baseball playoffs. And let's say I stayed mad at Bill the whole time, even in the delivery room, so Bill showed up on OK Magazine holding our baby sadly with the cover, "My Wife Hates Me." Would that make me the bad guy? No!!!
Back to Bridget: I'd have more sympathy if Bill hadn't predicted back in February, "Watch what happens, she'll be in US holding her bump every week, then she'll sell the baby photos and play up the single Mom thing." Bingo and bingo. I hate when Bill's right. What makes me mad is that I defended her at the time because she's a woman and women defend other women with these things. Now I feel like a dummy. Look, Bridget, you are lucky to have a healthy, beautiful son. Just don't ask us to feel sympathetic when you used your pregnancy to make money and advance your own career. I'm surprised the baby's cord blood didn't end up on eBay. Uh-oh, I just gave you an idea.
