When my son was 7 months old, a complete stranger at the farmers' market asked me when I was due with my second kid. Granted, I was wearing a maxi dress with an empire waist, but still: I was not pregnant! What is one of the worst things someone said to you about your weight after Liam or Stella was born?


I talk in my new book MOMMYWOOD of the recurring dialogue of being called out as pregnant after baby is long out of belly! It just happens. It's always when you think that you've lost a little of the baby weight that someone steps in grabs a handful of a now sans baby soft belly and asks the inevitable "when are you due?". It happened to me quite a bit after both babies.


In your book sTORI-TELLING, you really opened up about some of the drama on set of the (original) 90210. Is it a totally different vibe now on the new set? Do you feel like the “elder,” that’s been there/done that?


So far no drama at all on new 90210 set that I know of. They all seem to really get along which is great. I have most of my scenes with Jennie Garth and I guess we do feel a bit like the elders. I say we are the older cast and Jennie reminds me to say "original" instead. It makes us laugh. But they are all young and experiencing this for the first time. It's a great time for them. Jennie and I sit around and talk babies!

I started watching her reality show while I was pregnant and she was pregnant with her second and I totally related to all her fears, some that I myself felt weird asking my own dr. I was crying when she was about to go in for her c-section because I was so afraid (about my pregnancy) and it made you realize your not the only one with those fears. All I have to say is I love her not because shes a celebrity but because shes a real person and has the same feelings as so many pregnant women have and is not afraid to let it be known.

I enjoyed this article. I must admit after watching her reality show it showed a different side to her. she is a regular individual. As regular as you can get despite her celeb status. Also my husband was all to happy to enlighten me about the DEED at the birth of our 2nd son. Yes I was a little surprised but hey, having a baby takes all the dignity and hang-ups you have away. Wishing them well!
