Hate defending Eva Longoria since she’s annoying as f&ck but this bump obsession is getting out of hand. First of all, it’s boring. Babies, pregnancy, ugh.

But of course, this is not a popular opinion. What’s popular is to zoom in on the belly and to declare pregnancy after a celebrity commits the unthinkable and eats pasta for dinner. What’s popular is to announce a baby after a flowing gown on a red carpet.

Eva Longoria has been at the centre of pregnancy speculation for weeks. Check her out at fashion week last night where she took the opportunity to deny once and for all that she’s not expecting.

“I’m not pregnant, I’m just fat”.

Needless to say, this is not fat.

But this is the only other option. These days, you’re either pregnant or you’re heavy and there’s no in between.

They say the fashion industry and the magazines perpetuate body images issues, subjecting women to unrealistic skinny standards that are often achieved with dangerous results.

But Anna Wintour isn’t the one who is bump obsessed. Anna Wintour isn’t the one accentuating slight weight gain and attributing it to a child and when it turns out not to be a child making the owner of the imaginary bump feel big.

Or not.

Maybe BumpWatch is totally harmless. Maybe it’s only annoying to me because I’m the child-hating frozen wombed shrew. Maybe I don’t know sh*t because I have no kids.

BumpWatch is good for girls?
