Working mom Tina Fey knows it’s not easy to balance a busy work schedule with motherhood.
The 30 Rock star shared her struggles by writing a piece called “Confessions of a Juggler” in this week’s New Yorker. The mom of five-year-old daughter Alice – with husband Jeff Richmond – wrote:
“It is less dangerous to draw a cartoon of Allah French-kissing Uncle Sam. . . than it is to speak honestly about [working moms],” she said.
Fey who’s aware of the “accusatory eyes” of how she juggles both, adds:
“Sometimes I just hand them a juicy red apple I’ve poisoned in my working-mother witch cauldron and fly away,” she quips.
“There’s another great movie idea! Baby Versus Work: A hard-working baby looking for love (Kate Hudson) falls for a handsome pile of papers (Hugh Grant). I would play the ghost of a Victorian poetess who anachronistically tells Kate to ‘go for it.’”
“I know older men in comedy who can barely feed and clean themselves, and they still work,” she adds. “The women, though, they’re all ‘crazy.’ I have a suspicion that the definition of ‘crazy’ in show business is a woman who keeps talking even after no one wants to f**k her anymore.”
