Babytalk's 2007 'Stinky Diaper' awards take aim at Britney Spears
Unfortunately for Britney Spears, a nasty custody fight, stint(s) in rehab and various child-rearing no-no’s have landed her at the top of the list of ‘winners’ for 2007. Mom to 2-year-old Sean and 14 1/2-month-old Jayden, Britney was taken to task by the editors of Babytalk for "drinking and smoking around the kids; allegedly filling their bottles with soda and feeding them chewing gum (an obvious choking hazard); and stretching their bedtimes much too late."
Winner of the ‘Shut Your Blowhole’ award was Charlize Theron, who in 2007 told Parade magazine that she wasn’t excited by the notion of being pregnant because she doesn’t "really want to look like a whale."
Also receiving some flack is New England Patriot’s quarterback Tom Brady, who was criticized by Babytalk for his brief stay in California following the birth of his first son John, 3 1/2-months, with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan. According to the magazine, "despite having reportedly been granted a week’s leave by his team, Brady spent only a day with the two, hightailing it to North Carolina to suit up for a preseason game."
Real Time host Bill Maher — who received a ‘Stinky Diaper’ two years ago for calling pregnant women "unsexy" — is a winner yet again. This year, Babytalk railed on comments made by Bill in September that breastfeeding moms who nurse in public are "being too lazy to either plan ahead or cover up."
Finally, rounding out the awards was Virgie Arthur — the "cash-grubbing" maternal grandmother of 15-month-old Dannielynn Birkhead, the only surviving child of the late Anna Nicole Smith. According to Babytalk, which bestowed Virgie with the ‘Diapers for Dollars’ award, "Arthur’s every legal advance has been slapped by the courts, but if Dannielynn ever receives a share of the $472 million estate of Anna Nicole’s late husband, J. Howard Marshall II, Arthur is sure to be back."
