Please don’t forget about Eva Mendes. She’s more than Ryan Gosling’s good looking goo depository that he has yet to put a ring on. She has talent, but baby-mommahood is a challenge and it’s keeping her very busy. It’s like one day you go from all the guys wanting to stuff your cannoli with cream because you’re a hot piece of A-list ass to conspiracy theories suggesting you probably passed away since no one has seen your face in a movie in years. Eva is selling clothes now. The below H&M quality kind aimed at impulsive women who list “shopping” as an essential hobby on their Tinder profile. Mendes hasn’t found balance in her life between the kids, not acting, and selling clothes.
In a chat with ABC News surrounding her fall Eva Mendes Collection for New York & Co. launch, the 44-year-old mother of two admitted finding time for fashion while parenting daughters Amada Lee, 2, and Esmeralda Amada, 4, inspired her to add tees for her new collection because “sometimes it’s just a challenge to get dressed.”
“I just struggle like every other working mother. It’s so hard, and I haven’t figured out the balance at all,” Mendes said.
It’s insulting that Eva is comparing herself to other working mothers. I bet her children have always had Honest diapers hand signed by Jessica Alba or better their entire lives. You can’t compare yourself to the little woman until you’ve blocked a few babysitters that you’ve stiffed phone numbers because Enfamil isn’t cheap and you don’t get residual checks for Hitch and Training Day reruns on FX.
