I was reading yet another bit of junk regarding TomKat (the Benniferesque name given to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes) and came across this wonderful bit regarding the Cruise vs Shields battle over the existence and treatment of post-partum depression:
Cruise wisely sidestepped any topics smacking of controversy during his "ET" sit-down (Jann Carl also avoided being labeled "glib"), but his point of view was still heard, as fellow Scientologist Leah Remini wrung the very last drop of publicity from the whole Brooke Shields anti-depressant post-partum debate.
"I was disturbed when I saw that interview with Brooke because I personally didn't have those feelings with my daughter," the "King of Queens" actress said during a segment on the show. "I wouldn't trust someone who had those feelings with a baby. Do I think she needs help? Yes. Can you take a pill for something that deep? That dark? The answer is no. I got through it, but I didn't get through it by taking a pill."
Well Leah, I wouldn't trust anyone dumb enough to not know that some people experience different physical effects from pregnancy and child birth than others. Leah, you said you didn't have those feelings for your daughter. That means you didn't have post-partum depression. What is it you got through?
That would be like me saying I wouldn't trust anyone who had a baby through c-section because it isn't "natural childbirth". I didn't have to have a c-section so why would I "trust" anyone who did? I got through childbirth without one.
I just get so infuriated with people who are so stupid they can't fathom that other people might be going through things far more powerful than they themselves have ever gone through. I say Tom has no credibility because he has no female organs and is apparently insane. Leah has no credibility because apparently she is an idiot.
