myleene loads on single parenthood.
I don't know the details but I admire her for not jumping straight in to a new relationship. I doubt she's short of offers or opportunity.

I've been a lone parent 4 years now and I'm very proud of it. The lifestyle my dds have is down to me - good social life, positive role models, holidays, days out, activities and adequate clothes and toys, healthy lifestyle physically and emotionally. I have provided and not just in the financial sense - it's about much more than that.

I will be looking out for myleene's doc on tv.

I know I might get flamed for this but I get the impression she is not much of a sharer when it comes to their children...
And she has had relationships...

Ahh just as Peter loves his kids myleene is the first good single mother in her own eyes

FiveGoMadInDorset Sun 24-Apr-16 19:38:48

Yep it has been a real hardship for her being a single mother

Claraoswald36 Sun 24-Apr-16 19:40:42

I'd love to be her! Actually I'd get a bit bored. Was just interested in others opinions

aww must be so hard for her being able to afford childcare having a social life a job fronting a program about single moms on benefits poor baby hmm i mean being worth 11 million having foreign holidays she must struggle loads just like someone on benefits and would be able to empathise loads

Obviously lone parenthood must be hard on anybody but she is pretty well off and has a lot of help so can't really compare that to a mother who struggles daily alone and with limited finances, Myleene is neighbours with one my of relatives and I can't say I've heard good things

I've been a single Mum for 17 years can I go on the tv

Hermagsjesty Sun 24-Apr-16 19:44:45

I don't have a strong opinion on Myleene Klass but she really doesn't come over well in that article - did she mean to compare herself to a cockroach?!

plimsolls Sun 24-Apr-16 19:45:04

I can't bear her.

SwedishEdith Sun 24-Apr-16 19:51:35

What on earth does "owning single parenthood" mean? Don't most just get on with it?

'Despite saying she initially struggled with the idea of raising her children alone, she now loves being a single parent and the family are often seen jetting off on holidays together'

I'm sure that makes "owning single parenthood" a little easier. - whatever that is.

Portia that made me laugh!

Palomb Sun 24-Apr-16 19:56:00

Yeah it must be such a challenge being a single parent when your rich as shit and you get paid a huge amount for not very fucking much!

PortiaCastis Sun 24-Apr-16 20:00:20

I was a teenage Mum I had dd at 18 I was on the bennies.
All good material for a channel 5 car crash doc

She won't call a Diet Coke a Diet Coke?

What a twat. She needs to fuck right off.

What a load of patronising fucking shite. She owns being a single parent? Her ex fucked off with someone else - she didn't kick him out! He left! Evidently HER perception of single parents is they're all on benefits and wearing trackie bums, hence why she feels she's qualified to tell it better.

Stupid bitch. That's made me really cross. Urgh she's a smug cow.

When MK started having children she was everywhere talking about pregnancy and then parenting. It feels a bit like she monetises each life stage she reaches and turns it into her next career-defining arc. So, now that she's a single-parent, she'll want to be the go-to celebrity example of single parenthood. Seems a bit mercenary.

Vaara Sun 24-Apr-16 20:08:35

She's selling her life cause she's got nothing else. No different to KK or KP, just more middle class.

I'm pregnant! I'll write a book! No one else can do it like I can! I'm getting married! I'll write an article! No one else has ever thought of doing this! Oh fuck I'm a single parent, that's a bit shit....... No wait! I'm the best single parent ever!! I'm owning it!!

It's fucking tragic.

HermioneWeasley Sun 24-Apr-16 20:14:13

She always comes across as thinking she's the only woman to ever have been pregnant/had a baby/been married/ been divorced etc


Tiggeryoubastard Sun 24-Apr-16 20:16:22

There's something just so unlikeable about you her, OP. No, I wouldn't like to watch the documentary. Feeding off the less fortunate isn't my thing.

StealthPolarBear Sun 24-Apr-16 20:18:11

How does she thibk she represents single mothers on benefits exactly?

starry0ne Sun 24-Apr-16 20:30:35

I have owned been a parent much longer than her.. I mean I just got on with it .. She does actually remind me of something KP said about if she could do it anybody could.. eer no...I have no support and so need to be available for my Ds..

LP hood has its own challenges no matter what financial position you are in.. but I suspect this Doc will not be looking at how we make it work and full of admiration for LP's
