I knew this day would come. I’ve been wondering when I would feel compelled to write about the “other” Megan Fox who is a part of my daily life whether I want her to be or not. Grocery store checkout girls gasp and giggle at the sight of my credit card, AT&T phone operators in India ask trepidatiously if I’m really HER. Several times a day, I hear, “Megan Fox? Like the movie star!” Why yes. Yes I am. I’m becoming like that poor guy named Donald Trump who is not Donald Trump but gets reservations anywhere he wants while disappointing countless hostesses. It’s mostly tiresome but sometimes funny. Recently, Fox (the other one) made the news for speaking truthfully about the state of her heart when it comes to making movies when she has small children at home:

“I’ve never been an extraordinarily ambitious girl or career-oriented, but especially once I got pregnant with my first son and now [having] my second, it’s so hard to be a working mom especially when your heart is not in your work, when your heart is with your family.”

Megan Fox is experiencing what most mothers feel the moment they set eyes on their tiny new child. Suddenly, everything else becomes less important, even when you’re a big time movie star. Regardless of what faux feminists tell women that they can “have it all” or they should never give up the rat race and press ahead by hiring nannies and using daycare, Fox isn’t falling for it, and neither do most of us. This is not to say there aren’t countless women who have to work who would rather not. They are in the same category as Fox. Necessity demands they work but deep down, here are the reasons they’d prefer not to.

5. Your giggling baby.

You never know what’s going to set them off. You don’t want to miss it when it happens.

It's amazing, isn't it?

It's seems yesterday that actress Megan Fox was a spectacularly immature and obnoxious movie starlet who was best known for sultry red-carpet poses, spectacular overexposure and peek-a-boo photo shoots in the magazines, outrageous statements in interviews, hints and allusions to bi-sexuality and her spectacular falling-out with director Michael Bay. The brainless, cheesecake movie roles were almost beside the point.

However, it seems that, at the same time, the private Megan Fox bore little resemblance to the Hollywood enfant terrible. She has let it slip out that she hates partying, has tried drugs and doesn't like them and has been with the same guy (now her husband), fellow actor Brian Austin Green (from the original "Beverly Hills: 90210" for those of a certain age) for a decade. Her current turn as "April O'Neil" in the reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise is her first work since she took up motherhood and domesticity. And she's clearly not too happy about taking time off from the mommy track.

Nature will out.

She's a sometime columnist on PJMedia, who (judging soley on the tiny photo PJMedia publishes) appears to be very pretty, and writes well.

She's also very good at annoying leftist librarians, so that's good.

Oh, and there's another one out there... somewhere. Some Hollywood bimbo...

I was at a park a while back with my children, and their playmate who was minded by a full time live in nanny. The nanny was regaling me with stories about how rich and important the people she worked for were. I didn't have much, one car and a small house, but my son picked that moment to run up to me and put his arms around me and give me a big kiss before plopping in my lab to eat his snack.
The nanny said, "You are far wealthier than they are".
