What were on the Twitter feeds of celebrity moms this week? Many were tweeting their thoughts on the presidential debate… and Big Bird, of course! We also took a peek at Mariah Carey’s Twitter feed to get the inside scoop on that American Idol fight with Nicki Minaj. Celeb mom Jennie Garth needs a hashtag intervention, while Jamie Lynn Spears posts a photo of Maddie dressed up like Aunt Britney!
Celebrity moms (and a dad) on the presidential debate
Sherri Shepherd: If you were for Mitt b4 the #debates you’re still w Mitt… if you’re #TeamObama then despite tonight’s weaknesses your mind hasn’t changed
Taraji P. Henson: Who picks on Big Bird!!! #bulliesthatswho
[Henson’s response was referring to Mitt Romney saying he will cut programs funded by money borrowed from China, including PBS. He said, “I like PBS, I love Big Bird, but I’m not going to keep on spending money on things, to borrow money from China to pay for it.”]
Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Both are good men. #Debate2012 but we need a great president. #It’s not about liking Obama – It’s about needing Romney
LeAnn Rimes (pictured, right): Much respect for both parties in the debate tonight. I couldn’t imagine filling either one of their shoes.
Snooki: One follower wrote: “What do you think Mitt and Barack just said to each other?“
Snooki’s response? “Bring it on bi**h.”
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump: Wow presidential debate was pretty interesting, but think @BravoAndy should host the next one, then we could really get into it #hearthetruth
And one celebrity dad…
Chris Rock: Obama is waiting for the right moment to pull out Bin Laden’s skull from behind the podium. Wait for it. Wait for it… #debate#PresDebate
Celebrity mom Jennie Garth just may need a hashtag intervention. Case in point:
“my jam on my way to pitch our show! #blackkeys #dylanmckay #shesgone #staplescenterfridaynight #grateful,” she wrote.
For the Twitter novice, she is saying she is on her way to pitch a new sitcom with Luke Perry (aka Dylan McKay — his 90210 character) and she is listening to the Black Keys’ song “She’s Gone” — and they are apparently playing at the Staples Center on Friday night. Oh — she is also very grateful.
She also posted a photo of her daughter Luca with the tweet: “Ah teenagers these days. #multitasking #homeworkwhiletexting”
Jamie Lynn Spears
That’s right, the 4-year-old is dressed like Brit in her “Baby One More Time” video, with full-on Catholic school look including a plaid skirt, white tee, knee-high socks and sneakers.
Mariah Carey vs. Nicki Minaj
We took a peek at their Twitter pages to see if we could find any clues if they have patched things up.
“It’s been a loooong day, slippin’ into my favorite “shoes”!” tweeted Carey, with a photo of her feet in furry rabbit (or perhaps lamb?) slippers.
She also made a mention of her twin babies, Moroccan and Monroe, writing, “as promised, a video of #dembabies… they love music!!”
No mention of the tension between the two on her Twitter feed… Minaj’s page, on the other hand, has quite a few mentions!
“I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we’ve had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn,” Minaj tweeted. “Tried to keep quiet but let’s go!!!!”
“All I do is compliment u. That’s not enuff? Ur a legend, cheer up,” she later tweeted. ”U don’t have to run down ur resume or feel intimidated. Shady McGrady…”
The catfight begs the question: Are you Team Mariah or Team Nicki?
