Plus, what she wants to see in a 'Bad Moms' spinoff!
Battling Mom Guilt
CB!: What do you think of the mom-shaming culture celebrities face?
SS: Life is hard enough. There’s just something about social media, especially when you’re not identified, that just brings out the worst in people who clearly don’t have anything else going on in their lives and they just like to be negative. My daughter Eva [Amurri] has a really successful blog and and the times people shame her is shocking. We need to be together; moms need to stand with each other and give each other tips and congratulate each other. That happens so much on her blog, but every now and then someone will say, ‘What do you mean to have help?’ And she’ll say, ‘Well, I’m a working mother!'”
SS: It’s almost like a hobby that people have to be negative.
CH: When my daughter was in grade school, there was a sense of working moms versus stay-at-home moms. It was very strange because sometimes the stay-at-home moms would make the working moms feel like, ‘Well, if you really loved your kids, you wouldn’t be going to work.'” It was odd. Hopefully, all of that can be changed.
SS: I think it’s the minority. I think a lot of these people have voice they haven’t earned and it doesn’t come from a place of anything thought. It’s just so much easier to write something bad than something congratulatory. I don’t think you should pay attention to them.
