Kate Hudson to Write a Book for New Moms

Kate Hudson is planning to write a book for new moms, and will focus on addressing those self loathing "I feel like a fat cow!" post-partum feelings that plague many new mothers.

“Part of that is the way your body feels, not necessarily how it looks —
especially after you’ve gained 70 pounds,” Hudson says, reports the London Sun.
“I was depressed. I was the happiest, jolliest pregnant woman, then I had the
baby and then I was just fat. ... I didn’t lose any weight delivering. You’re
breastfeeding and you’re starving and looking at yourself in the mirror going:
‘I don’t feel good about myself.’ That is not a good feeling for any

Please. Why would anyone want to buy a book to read about how much new moms hate their bodies when there are, like, ten gazillion free blogs about it on the internet? I guess the big sell is that it's Kate Hudson talking about how fat she feels and not some anonymous mom in Suburbia, U.S.A.

Then again, some of these celebrity mommy books can be funny. Jenny McCarthy's cracked me up.

I read Jenny's book at B&N one day when the kids were playing trains. It WAS funny, but I didn't buy it. I just kept reading a little more each time I visited B&N until I finished it. But it was written well, do you know if she wrote that herself or had a ghostwriter do it for her?

But I also think the reason that book was so popular was BECAUSE it was written by Jenny McCarthy. I don't think I would have even noticed the book if it were written by no one I've ever heard of.
