Casting Agency Fail
The most amazing thing happened tonight. While I was being a diligent little Baby Guy, I received an email. Because they want me to “pass it along,” I will.
Clearly they don’t know who they sent this to. Here is my somewhat edited response back:
While I wish YOU success, I certainly don’t wish it for this show. Maybe you don’t realize who you sent this to, but I am a staunch opponent to this disaster. I know Rosie Pope, and don’t really have anything against her. I have HORRIBLE issues with the fact that no one is fact-checking her advice on this show. It is terribly dangerous and ill-informed. I actually wrote articles debunking the dangerous advice she doles out on this series during the first season, and I am actually quite repulsed that it was picked up for season 2….
I am enclosing a link to a summary of my feelings about this show, and I highly suggest you read it. Not to be rude, but the show is a MESS.
Don’t take this the wrong way, but this particular show has NO BUSINESS being on the air, and she has zero business giving advice to pregnant women.
Yes, the ellipses are in place of things I deleted for the sake of this post 😉
Since I first realized this wreck of a show was being picked up, I was appalled. Words cannot even describe how gross it is that this show has been picked up for a second season. One more season to dole out garbage, one more season for me to blog about it.
I take my job very seriously, so to see it made a mockery of is just repulsive. I feel quite blessed that expectant parents trust me to help them for several reasons, the LEAST of which is the fact that I don’t have kids. I love working with expectant and new families. I am nerd about baby gear. I am a nerd about making sure pregnant moms are taking care of themselves and their cargo. I am a nerd about helping people feel more confident in their ability to take care of this amazing new being in their life. I am sure Rosie
loves likes moms. I honestly do. I just don’t think EVERYONE who cares should be allowed to inform. Being a mother doesn’t make you an expert. I’ve worked in this business 6 years now, and I look forward to the next 50. Every day I read and strive to learn more and push my limits to do what I do.
And I feel very, VERY blessed to do so.
In other news, I am thinking of starting a newsletter. Thoughts?
