Word of the Day Wednesday

I know I'm a day late, but found this article with my word, & even though it is NOT new word, it is one that in this context I think makes a HUGE  point for celebrities & us 'normal' people.

EXHAUSTION : which according to Merriam-Webster this means to tire extremely or completely.

The article I am referring to can be found here Hollywood's new code word: "Exhaustion" and it refers to celebrities use of the word 'exhaustion' as a means of getting hospitalized, getting out of work, and what else? Denying the fact that they have an alcohol or substance abuse problem?! *Shocker right!

I am absolutely disgusted at celebrities use of this word, like they would actually know what doing a hard day's labor consists of. Until you have worked 2 jobs (on the same day), clean a house, cared for 3 kids, & cooked dinner... all after having only about 4 hours of sleep "YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT EXHAUSTION IS!"

Can anyone else relate with me on fury that swells within me when someone who has EVERYTHING acts as if they know what it's like to be 'so tired that they are exhausted?"

The article states they have armies of 'helpers' to get them through these EXHAUSTING days here are the helpers: assistants, cooks, drivers, dog walkers, maids, manicurists, facialists, eyebrow shapers, hairstylists, makeup artists, clothing stylists, managers, publicists, agents, accountants.  

I think personally if I had THAT many people to cater to my every whim I would never be exhausted, I mean honestly you could even hire someone to chew your food for you if you wanted, lol!!

Okay now it's time to tell me what you think...How do you feel about celebrities using the word 'exhaustion' ? Do you think they are using in context or just to hide something like alcohol or substance abuse? What are your thoughts?


  1. haha I totally agree! Celebrities have no idea! I also hate how they go into hiding the last 3 months of their pregnancies, thus leading people to think that a regular-looking 6 month pg woman is "ready to pop"- and then people are so shocked to see an actual 9 month pg woman! Ugh! Celebrities ruin everything!

  2. I totally agree! Celebrities have NO idea what exhaustion is! I'm willing to bet that some of the ones with children don't either!
    I also hate how pregnant celebrities go into hiding the last 3 months of pregnancy- laeving the rest of the world to think that a 6 month pregnant woman "is about to pop" and a 9 month pregnant woman looks like a monster! haha

  3. They are most definately hiding something! Unless someone is on tour (maybe)...but they have tons of hired hands too. No one knows what tired is until they are a mom!

    Stopping by from MBC...I saw you were so close to 100 and now you are there...I just reached 100 today too! Congrats! Stop by and say hi...I love new followers! :)

  4. I'm visiting from MBC, I see you're at 100, great job! I'm 5 away from 50, and 100 is my next stop, come for a visit! I having a 50 follower contest!

    I love your blog, exhaustion...if us mom's gave into it there's a chance the world would stop spinning!

  5. Exhaus....see, I am actually too tired to type the whole word out. I am a mom to 3 girls, 4 years old, 2 years old and 1 month old. I've got the "Exhaustion Routine" down! They could learn some lessons from people like us!
    Great post! Following you from MBC
