Mean Betty: Way to Milk It, Katy Perry’s Mom!
Writing a memoir about your daughter’s boobs? So classy, Mama Perry.
Mean Betty is never surprised when a celebrity’s mom comes out of the shadows to cash in on their offspring’s major success. Mean Betty has seen it a hundred times (Dina Lohan, Kris Jenner, Tish Cyrus… need Mean Betty continue), so it’s no surprise that Katy Perry’s mommy dearest, Mary Perry Hudson, is suddenly popping up in the news.
However, Mean Betty is shocked at how Mama Perry is going about it. Get ready for this one, kittens, because it’s entirely tacky. And shameless.
According to the New York Post, Mary is shopping around a book proposal that’s basically about how embarrassing it is to be Katy’s mother (See, pets? Mean Betty warned you). Because Mary is a preacher, she apparently feels the need to openly denounce her own daughter’s racy costumes, enormous breasts, and her “foul-mouthed” fiancé, Russell Brand.
Here’s just a sample of the juicy goodness this memoir includes, should anyone be delusional enough to publish it:
“Katy stepped out from behind the changing doors in a tiny risqué costume. No mother wants to see the top of her daughter’s boobs . . . My first instinct was to order her back behind those doors and demand she put something else on . . . However, I had no problem letting my eyebrows say what I wouldn’t allow my mouth to utter.”
Oh, and Mean Betty just can’t get enough of this little gem:
“Oh, dear God, how can I save her from all this? The money, the fame, the network, the people surrounding her, how can I compete?”
Well, for starters, Mean Betty thinks you should probably say these things to your daughter IN PRIVATE before writing them down in a disturbingly public book proposal. Just a thought.
Nothing seems to faze Mean Betty anymore, but the lack of shame from Mama Perry actually does. Mean Betty’s poor, jaded heart goes out to Katy. Being famous already has a lot of crappy components to it, and Mean Betty’s sure being married to Russell Brand is no walk in the park – but when your own mother starts to milk you in such a lowlife manner, that has to do some irreversible damage.
After all, isn’t your mom supposed to be your number one, supportive fan? Mean Betty loathes to quote the Black Eyed Peas, but in this instance Mean Betty must ask, “Where’s the love?”
Let’s hope this book never sees the light of day and “Mom” Mary Perry Hudson retreats back to the evil shadows she came from, right poppets?
