Tina Fey's Straight-Talk About Motherhood

Tina Fey doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to discussing the tenuous balance of career and motherhood. In an article she penned for this week’s New Yorker, the 30 Rock star talks about the myth of the perfect parent.

“It is less dangerous to draw a cartoon of Allah French-kissing Uncle Sam…than it is to speak honestly about [working moms],” writes Tina, who is mom to five-year-old daughter Alice with hubby Jeff Richmond

Tina says she constantly has to deal with the “accusatory eyes” of those who question her ability to juggle career and parenting. “Sometimes I just hand them a juicy red apple I’ve poisoned in my working-mother witch cauldron and fly away,” she quips. “There’s another great movie idea! Baby Versus Work: A hard-working baby looking for love (Kate Hudson) falls for a handsome pile of papers (Hugh Grant). I would play the ghost of a Victorian poetess who anachronistically tells Kate to ‘go for it.'”

The Emmy-winner also takes on the double-standard in Hollywood for women of a certain age. “I know older men in comedy who can barely feed and clean themselves, and they still work,” she writes. “The women, though, they’re all [considered] ‘crazy.’”

Jillian Michaels To Adopt From Africa

Jillian Michaels is one step closer to becoming a mother! The Biggest Loser trainer, who recently announced her decision to leave television to focus on starting a family, is knee-deep in the adoption process.

“I want to start a family,” she told Access Hollywood. “I’d like to take a year off of television and really focus on – I’m in the middle of the adoption process – and really focus on that and hopefully becoming a mother in the next year and putting all my energy into that for a while. And then back to TV later in 2012.”

Describing the process as “an incredible undertaking” the 36-year-old fitness guru explained that she’s currently trying to adopt from Africa:

I’ve completely all of my paperwork; I’ve had all my physicals; I’ve been check by the FBI – you have no idea! Now I wait for a referral. That could be anywhere from six months to a year. I’m in a pilot program for the Democratic Republic of Congo so we’ll see. Then you get your referral and then you have to try to bring your kid back home. So, it’s a process.. but I’m excited for it!

When asked if she’d like a son or a daughter, Jillian responded with a laugh, “I’m 36! Do you hear the clock ticking? As long as there’s a little teeny person with me, I’ll be good.”

In December, Jillian admitted that her work with children on her recently launched show, Losing It, provoked her desire to start her own family: “Shooting Losing It also had a big impact on me. Living with kids, I saw firsthand what I was missing.”

The celebrity stylist wore long thigh high stiletto boots and a belted shirt dress underneath a brown and beige leather jacket.

Zoe, who is expecting a boy in early April, recently said she doesn’t want the baby to come before the Oscars.

I have conversations with him on a daily basis, like, ‘You cannot go anywhere until after [the Oscars]. I have a lot coming up so he’s not allowed to go anywhere yet!”
