I thought I was really into these photos of Katherine Heigl having lunch with husband Josh Kelley yesterday. They’re cute, right? And there’s also something comforting about having someone who’s around to love you even if no one likes you. You could say it’s actually rather romantic.

So here they are, enjoying a romantic moment, and then...

I looked closer...

Oh. It’s her mother, AGAIN, sitting opposite, just, like, THERE, all the time, in the corner of the shot, hovering, present, ALWAYS.

Now you know, as a Chinese person, filial piety is a big deal in my life. So I get it that she’s tight with her ma. I’m tight with my ma too. Super tight. But dude, when my ma isn’t sick, I don’t need to be seeing her every day. And certainly not in the way that Heigl sees hers. Heigl’s mother is her manager. So, sure, they’re together a lot because they work together. Which makes it even more crazy to me that she’s there, at lunch with her husband, when like, she was there in the morning already. And she’ll be there in the afternoon. And I dunno, does she stick around for dinner?

Mother and daughter hair, mother and daughter careers, mother and daughter schedules...

Same, same, together, together, intertwined, intertwined...

I don’t get it. Tell me, please, that there’s nothing to get. That I am totally unreasonable. That you are good with this, honestly, and if that’s the case, I’ll try to fix it in my own head.
