Today’s blind item is about a famous actress and her concerns about her daughter’s education. Frankly speaking, it’s not really something that needed to be put into a blind item, but what the heck, it must have been a slow news day. There’s nothing wrong with a mother being so concerned about what her child is doing or how she’s doing in school. She has only one child, so it’s expected that she cares this much. Check out who Mumbai Mirror is talking about. By the way, just imagine as the child grows up and mummy starts attending all these school functions, all the other mummies will despise her even more. Know why? Because their husbands’ attention will be on her not on their children or them!
A leading lady isn’t being quite leading by example. Not at her child’s school, it seems. We hear mommy dearest, ever protective of her progeny, is over indulgent at school when pickup time is scheduled. The parents are expected to wait at the school’s gate while the kids line up for an orderly departure. But our star—simply because she is one—waits inside the school’s premises, with her bug’s-eye glasses on, picks up her child, and conducts a mini interview with the class teachers on the day’s progress. Of course, the other mums are seething, but they are forced to grumble under their breaths.
