As if the pregnancy rumors that plague her over and over again aren't enough of a pain in the rear end, would you believe that yet another rumor claims that Kate Middleton planted the pregnancy rumors herself?!?
(I know, that's quite the mouthful.)
Yes, there's really a story floating around insisting that Kate is responsible for trying to bring extra attention to her mid-section in an effort to take the focus away from other royal scandals, including the now infamous bare bum photo.
And while the thought of Kate wanting people to forget just how amazing her ass is really isn't all that hard to believe, do you honestly think she'd go so far as to make up stories about herself?!?
She's already hounded by the paparazzi enough as it is, so why on earth would she give them even more reason to follow her every move, hoping to get the first pic of a baby bump?
This is seriously so ridiculous, it's ... ridiculous.
I know she's in the public eye, which puts her at risk for people trying to tear her apart by any means possible, but man -- this is taking things too far.
It's almost like some folks can't resist making things up about Kate just for the sake of doing it, which makes me feel kind of bad for her. Yes, she leads a very privileged life. But something tells me being part of the royal family gets pretty old sometimes, especially when she has to worry about her every move embarrassing them in one way or another.
And while I highly doubt the Palace would take these rumors to heart for one second, it still doesn't bode well for Kate to have them circulating.
Honestly, the best hope she has for putting an end to all this crazy talk is to actually get knocked up for real. Everybody loves a baby, especially a royal one, so people will probably cut her a little slack once she's expecting again ... right? (Let's hope so.)
Do you think there is any chance that Kate planted the pregnancy rumors?
