Did That All Really Happen?


Last week I went to New York to promote the book and shoot a short segment for the Bethenny show, which was perfect because I really needed a good night’s sleep away from my snoring husband and really, really needed a good haircut (Thank you, Ouidad!)


I sat on a panel with reality TV stars Tia Mowry and  Jenni Pulos to discuss “mommy issues of the day.” Please note Bethenny’s face below while listening to me babble about Lily critiquing my naked body.


(She did tell me I smelled good, so that’s something.)

And then Jenni Pulos started rapping about poop. And I wasn’t sure how I was supposed to respond since everyone else was bee-bopping and dancing in their seats, so I just sort of sat there like, is she really rapping about poop or am I imagining it? Proof that I wasn’t imagining it…        

And then I ran into Real Housewives of New Jersey star Kathy Wakile, and I informed her that she was really short in real life, which I’m sure she loves hearing. She also looks really young and I told her that, so maybe I made up for it?

I spent the train ride home ripping off the eyelash extensions that were applied in single strands, so if you didn’t know better, it would have looked as if I were ripping out actual eyelashes. Which is probably why the two people next to me got up and moved. At least I smelled good, folks!

So, that was my 24 hour trip to New York last week. And also why I really shouldn’t be allowed to leave the house.

    OH. MY. WORD!! A POOP RAP??? FOR REAL?!?!?

    I don’t think I would have known what to do, either? That really freaked me out. And I think that if I were a potty training child, that it would freak me the eff out and I would NEVER GO POO ON THE POTTY!!!

    By the way, you look totally smashing and awesome!

    You look fantastic as always!!!

    I’m sorry but she CAUGHT the poop???? Hold the kid over a toilet, hell just let him go on the floor. I’d much rather clean that up than have to wash that shit off my hands….blech!

    JILL!! You handled that rap perfectly. I love the respectfully amused expression on your face and the sort of half-dancing. I would have freaked out. Also have to tell you that the picture of you by the door is AMAZING!!! You look incredible. Beautiful smile, hair–EVERYTHING. (Love the eyelash details. Who knew!?)

    I actually thought the poop rap was kind of entertaining. And that was also my low mommy moment for the week.

    A mom rapping about poop? Guess my sense of humor has abandoned me this evening – 'cause I'm not laughing, chortling or even smirking. Maybe if my 6 & 8 year old adorable, but bodily-function obsessed, boys were rappin' it would be funny…nah, I'd still be embarrassed, tho' this time it would be for myself.
