Let's face it: Not every woman was meant to be a mom. Case in point? These celebrity moms. Sure, they probably mean well, but their constant antics get them recognized for things other than their excellent parenting skills.
We all know those women who would rather be a BFF to their children rather than a parent. Dina Lohan is the poster child for these types of women - she's constantly making excuses for the bad behavior of her daughter, Lindsay Lohan. What's worse? She's constantly going out with her daughters to clubs, even when they should be home reading a good book. Need proof that Dina needs to check herself? All you have to do is look at this photo from September 2011. Seriously - just, no.
Nadya Suleman - AKA The Octomom - has been making headlines since she gave birth to eight children a few years ago. Sure, other women have that many children at once, but the mother already had six other children at the time, bringing her total to 14.
Since then, The Octomom has been in the news - not for her parenting skills, but for her willingness to do pretty much anything to make cash (except porn, for now.) Most recently, Suleman has been in the news for her bankruptcy and the foreclosure proceedings going on her home in Orange County, Calif., along with her possible child neglect. It might be time to admit you need help, Nadya.
It's really hard to believe that someone as seemingly level-headed as Frances Bean Cobain came from perpetual Hollywood train wreck Courtney Love. You know it's bad when Cobain asks Twitter to ban her mother. The 19-year-old asked for the ban after her mother went on an odd Twitter rant claiming that Cobain was sleeping with her father's former Nirvana bandmate, the much-older Dave Grohl.
"While I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn. I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I'm in a monogamous relationship and very happy," Cobain said in a statement. "Twitter should ban my mother."
We agree, Frances.
"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star Kris Jenner isn't a controversial mother in the same way these other celeb mothers are, but she is scandalous. The reasons? She managed to parlay Kim Kardashian's sex tape with Ray J into a huge reality show business that includes a new three-year, $40 million television deal with E!. Some might call that savvy, but others don't think she should be constantly pimping out her family for cash.
At least her kids can buy therapy with the cash, right?More from this contributor
