Gossip Rag Thursday

People

This whole horrible case is going to end about as well as the Jon-Benet Ramsey case did. With about as much media coverage, it's suprising how many people I know who know nothing about this, though. Damn you Britney for stealing this family's thunder (especially when they actually deserve it).

For more gossip rag covers, follow the jump!

Yay! Angie might actually be pregnant, because when In Touch says she might be (and magically knows her weight) it's GOT to be true!

Lifenstyle

Or ... maybe she's not pregnant, but instead fighting with Brad and his friends. Hmmm.

Usmagazine

I'm seriously upset that the girls from The Hills are on the cover of the style issue. Maybe that makes me old.

Okmagazine

Ah, child exploitation! Gotta love it. As much as I think these kids are better off with the intervention that's happening in their lives, exploiting them is just so not cool.

So, Brit's hitting rock bottom just as her new single has hit #1 on ITunes and is busting up the Billboard charts like mad! I'm betting this girl isn't so much at rock bottom as she is hitting a strange new low plateau.

Whoa, and I was annoyed about the McCann cover story. Yes, it is dreadfully sad, but to me, I feel very strongly that this is a case of parental negligence and I'm surprised that they have gotten as much media attention as they have. Plus, there's something really fishy about her parents behavior surrounding the situation.

And yes, I'm as surprised by the media attention this case received as well as the Natalee Holloway case and the Jon Benet case.

Dear US Weekly,

ENOUGH with the girls from The Hills.

Thanks,

Kristabella

I'm from Leicester (where the McCanns live) and when I was home in May, it was all anybody could talk about. But the thing I noticed wasn't so much the tragedy of Madeleine being taken, it was the tragedy of how neglectful those parents were. The fact that they are white and middle-class speaks volumes on how they were treated by the media though. I bet if it was either (a) a single, low-income Mum or (b) a minority parent or family, there would be a bigger hue and cry about how those kids were left alone! The fact that they were at a swanky resort is just the same as if I left my kids alone to run down the street for a pack of smokes. Doesn't matter where you are or who you are.
I'm not saying it's not a tragedy, and I'm not heartless enough not to feel for the family, but Jesus, you don't leave your kids like that.

You just don't.

Marmite Breath beat me to my comment!

If these parents had been lower income or minority, there would be NO media attention given to them. It would be another set of neglectful trashy parents, let's all move on to Britney. The fact that they're white and middle class is the only reason the story is getting play.

Which is the same issue I had with Natalie Holloway and every other pretty white girl who gets lost or abducted.

If they hadn't been wealthy or if Madeline hadn't been adorable, the story wouldn't have gotten nearly this much air time.

Seriously---enough with the pretty white people who have bad things happen to them.

I've read up enough of the new-age benet story. Atleast the britney story is relative to my life as of recent haha :). JK

Robyn, you can't possibly be old because you recognize the girls from The Hills when you see them. Me? um, no.
