Ever since Mommie Dearest outed Joan Crawford's wire hanger fetish (among other eccentricities, to put it kindly), celeb mommy memoirs -- the ones about moms, not by moms -- have almost certainly been regarded with a certain degree of terror by famous mothers. I mean, let's be honest here: We all have our bad days as parents, don't we? What mom in her right mind would want those less-than-flattering moments committed to the page for all eternity?
So I give Kate Gosselin a lot of credit for saying she'd be "really fine" with her kids writing a tell-all book someday: "I know everything they would write, you know? If they want to open their lives up someday, I wouldn’t count it out. If they wanted to say it, I say go for it."
To me, that means Gosselin mustn't have much to hide (although, to be fair, is anybody even left with anything to hide after starring on a reality show?). That's one of the things I've always admired about Goesslin: She's always, unapologetically, herself. You don't like it? Too bad!
Anyway, I'd definitely read a book about Kate written by any and all of the Gosselin kids. But she's far from the only star I'm secretly hoping gets the celeb mommy memoir treatment from her kids someday. Here are a few more fantasy titles on the bookshelf of my dreams:
1. A Load of GOOP by Apple Paltrow-Martin
2. The Beautiful People by Shiloh Jolie-Pitt
3. Drivin' on My Mama's Lap by Sean Preston Spears
4. Million-Dollar Onesies by Blue Ivy Carter
5. Teaching Mom About Tuna by Maxwell Drew Simpson Johnson
6. One Direction by North West
Who would you like to see get the celeb mommy memoir treatment someday?
