‘Bachelor’ Alum, Shayne Lamas-Richie, Gets An Agent For Her Unborn Child
Wow. We here at Mommyish have always been a little uncomfortable with parents publicizing their fetus. From the unsettling trend of fetuses on FacebookÂ and the “I’m Expecting” option to Beyonce and her pregnancy mommyjacking the VMAs, I think we find that pregnancy is a wonderful experience that benefits from a little bit of privacy. I mean, sure, we share our crazy pregnancy stories around here, but I don’t think we’ll be posting any ultrasound pictures on the homepage.
Well, one couple just put every fetus Facebook page to shame. Shayne Lamas-Richie, who youÂ may (not) remember from one of the various seasons of The Bachelor, is in talks with a management company to rep her child,Â the oneÂ that is due to be born two months from now. Shayne and her husband, Nik Richie, are pretty positive that their child is destined for great things. After all, the contractÂ covers allÂ writing, performing, singing, or other work done in the entertainment industry. Hey, at least they have high goals set for their spawn.
In what may be the most fitting moniker ever for a child being pimped by it’s parents for publicity, the couple is apparently calling their child, “Press.” This seems like a pretty honest admission of their reason for having a baby, but I still feel bad that this little kid will have to grow up with a constant reminder of what their parents want from them.
We’ve talked before about minor celebrities who use their children to gain publicity and media coverage, but I would feel pretty terrible comparing a woman who posed pregnant for the cover of Life & Style to someone who started signing business documents for their child before it even made it out of the womb.
Shayne and Nik Lamas-Richie are using their soon-to-be infant in a vile and despicable way. I just feel bad for the poor child that will be caught in the middle of their cries for attention. Good Luck Press Lamas-Richie. I’m sorry to say, it looks like you’re going to need it.
