To want to vomit after reading the article "Hot Mama" in the style magazine - the new breed of trendy mums:sexy, hip and not the least bit embarassing.....

What a smug article, about Jo Whiley and mention of others who all seem to be skinny, have surplus cash, clothes and "young" hair. Ofcourse I realise the writer is just pushing products, but she does manage a quip early on at Fergie and her kids as being repellent?

Whiley has a good cool job - good for her but
apparently Whiley has never had a maternity nurse - good for her - so what, most of the women in the world have not had a maternity nurse, does that mean that someone who does have one is doing something wrong?

Utter hogwash or AIBU?

Nah its a load of bollox, designed to make women feel shit about themselves

<does embarrassing mum dance>

Thanks MamaG I agree

...I've posted the link before I go find pink wellies to wear and dance in... I might even sing along to the radio without any inhibitions...

Cowbag - nothing wrong with Fergie and her daughters. What an awful piece of writing. People starving in the world and it's all "oh wow, this person is better than this person because they wear these clothes". FFS. I think Fergie is beautiful, and so are her daughters.

Jimmy Choo Hunters? Fuck off. Anyone with an ounce of class wouldn't be seen dead in them.

MrKrabs Sun 21-Jun-09 11:47:31

they are all very sun damaged imo

What a cringy article. Urgh.

Anyone else think Jo Whiley has a permanent bad hair day, cool as she is? Or am i just showing my envyenvy age?wink

dxx

LadyofWaffle yes Jimmy Choo hunters made me puke too.

Yes and how about the mention of the fashion muse having achieved the major milestone, whereby "we still love her" for still looking banging in a leotard at the age of 49. Utter crap.

Oh please may the writer slip in the mud when she goes to "Glasto".

No doubt Jo Whiley is putting out a book about "how to have it all and juggle kids and a career" aimed at getting other women to part with their hard earned cash, so that she can buy another paid of gladiator sandals.

what a pile of pretentious poop.

MrKrabs Sun 21-Jun-09 13:08:09

i htink WIley is on a big PR thing atm as there is a feature in the Mailonline about her

TheCrackFox Sun 21-Jun-09 13:08:31

I personally think Jo Whiley has to be one of the dullest DJs going.

Yet another article designed to make women feel bad about ourselves so we go and spend a lot of money on crap ie. Jimmy Choo wellies (WTF?).

Does she want a medal for not having a maternity nurse? Still waiting for mine to arrive in the post. wink

scottishmummy Sun 21-Jun-09 13:28:38

i do love the way they seek plaudits for doing what the rest of us get on with doing.oh no maternity nurse how supa and so so brave.what a heroine

hehehe she must be so cool living the dream in NY MK with the Buckinghamshire massif

MrKrabs Sun 21-Jun-09 13:35:58

JulesJules Sun 21-Jun-09 13:55:52

Yuck. Utterly nauseating puff piece article. And how many 100s of times did she say 'Glasto'? Then you get right to the end and surprise, surprise, Jo 'cool mama' Whiley has a book out. But of course she has.

(pigtails, shorts, cowboy hat and designer wellies - wtf?)

cornsilk Sun 21-Jun-09 13:57:02

<<psst Jo - kerastase>>

JulesJules Sun 21-Jun-09 13:57:23

scottishmummy Sun 21-Jun-09 13:58:34
