squeaver · 20/10/2009 10:40

Is that the bottom of a barrel that I hear being scraped?

Katie Price?! Kate Moss?! Colleen Nolan (didn't she book a prostitute for her sons 16th b'day or something?

Tillyscoutsmum · 20/10/2009 10:43

Bloody hell - that is slim pickings

I think I'd go for Holly out of that lot - at least she hasn't immediately shrunk to skinny, has bf'd and doesn't do millions of "interviews" and photo shoots as though she is the only woman in the world to ever have given birth (a la Myleene Klass)

Ewe · 20/10/2009 10:43

Geri, Sam Cam and Holly Willoughby seem ok.

Katie Price is a bloody joke though!

notnowbernard · 20/10/2009 10:44

Isn't HW's baby about 4 mins old?

Tillyscoutsmum · 20/10/2009 10:46

He was born in May I think

posieparker · 20/10/2009 10:46

Samantha Cameron? Jeez louise...... why not a Mum that has actually been a good role model for Mothers? Perhaps a hands on mother who either has taken a good career break or one that has juggled well?
I don't need to comment on most of list as will do.

Jujubean77 · 20/10/2009 10:46

Kate moss lol

FlameHasAnotherChick · 20/10/2009 10:46

Holly is working constantly though

posieparker · 20/10/2009 10:47

I'd like to have seen the winner bf in public! At least that would be a good message to mothers, what about Billie Piper?

TheFrumiousBandersnatch · 20/10/2009 10:47

The only one vaguely worthy of the accolade is Samantha Cameron.

Holly Willoughby has only been a mum for a few months and I'm not sure leaving her little boy to go back on the telly at 4 months qualifies as good parenting (my opinion).

The rest are desperate fame whores who pimp their kids out for the right price and drag them through the tabloids.

BratleyEatsBrainsForBreakfast · 20/10/2009 10:48

Oh dear God.

Holly would have to get my vote, if my arm was twisted.

KP?? Seriously though?

I won't lose any sleep over it though, can go in the pile along with the other 'rubbish awards of the year'.

Ewe · 20/10/2009 10:58

I would vote for Sam Cam too, I think she is a far more worthy role model than any of the others.

squeaver · 20/10/2009 10:59

Yes, I very much doubt there's been an official nominations process overseen by the Electoral Commission.

Just them all sitting around going "who's going to get the most column inches??"

What - no Posh? No Kerry Katona?

Samantha Cameron is surely the only one even vaguely worthy of the title - and I'm sure she's had a very difficult year follwoing the loss of her son Ivan.

paisleyleaf · 20/10/2009 11:04

Hasn't that list been set up exactly so that Samantha Cameron will win celebrity mum of the year?

monkeypinkmonkey · 20/10/2009 11:11

This would be my list for 'bad celeb mum of the year' bar HW and SC.
I wonder what qualifies them..

introduce your dc to new man in your life asap, then ditch them then introduce to new man in your life again, then ditch them...

pleasechange · 20/10/2009 11:15

silly list - fgs how does anyone know how good a mother anyone is (except obviously for the likes of kp and kk!)

I don't think basing the decision on who works and who doesn't is exactly a good criterion!

tulpe · 20/10/2009 14:37

what a totally stupid waste of time & energy.

How are we able to judge the parenting skills of any sleb (or indeed any other mother in general) not personally known to us?

We don't see them in their role as mother unless its a photo op. It's as though the organisers say "Oh that person is a sleb and a mother. She can be on the list".


Nancy66 · 20/10/2009 19:39

they missed off Courtney Love

BalloonSlayer · 20/10/2009 20:33

Approaching this from the other direction, Samantha Cameron (like Michele Obama, don't start me on her) is only famous because of who she is married to.

She's not a "celebrity" in her own right, she is a political WAG.
