The ‘Real Housewife,’ who got engaged to her boyfriend Jason Hoppy earlier this month, announced on Twitter that she is pregnant with her first child. She would have kept it private longer, but Perez Hilton outed her first. We all know you can’t keep a secret for long in the Entertainment Industry.
Since I also had my pregnacy blasted to the public before I was ready, I totally understand when Bethany told People magazine, “It’s premature to be telling people this. I haven’t even gone through my first trimester. We haven’t even heard the heartbeat. My [fiance’s] parents didn’t even know.”
You have a enough crap to deal with when you and your partner first discover you’re having a baby. And not being able to announce it how and when you choose really sucks. It’s like finding out you’ve got the best present ever, but some stranger unwrapped it for you and already started playing with it. Oh, you’ll get it back, but now it’s covered in their grubby fingeprints and smells like sausage.
I hope that Bethany and Joe have a wonderful pregnancy and a great delivery. She’s always been one of my favorites and I loved her even back when she was on Martha Stewart’s lame version of “The Apprentice.” Since, she’s a natural foods chef, I’m sure the baby will have lots of tasty, yet healthy snacks to look forward too as they grow up.
And, if she wants to announce it herself, I’m sure all the other moms out there are willing to pretend that we never heard what stupid Perez said anyway.
