I assume most kids of famous people will probably grow up and use some of the dollars in their trust fund on therapy visits. Some more than others. (I can’t be the only one who hopes a certain family of Calabasas has put aside at least a couple million for their kids’ future kouncelling sessions). And then there’s Halle Berry.
Halle recently spoke to E! News about her new film Kidnap, and she admitted she has some fears about raising her two kids, Nahla and Maceo. Specifically, that she’ll do something to send them to therapy. Halle Berry must have Memento syndrome. Because girl, that Thanksgiving morning throw-down between your children’s fathers is ground zero for future therapy.
“There’s fears as a mom that I’ll make a mistake, I fear that my kids will sit in therapy when they’re 25 and say, ‘Well, my mother, back in 2017, did bla bla bla.’ So I have fear that I don’t always get it right. And I hope that along the way I don’t do anything that’s too damaging to my children, that they won’t be able to deal with.”
I think Halle should assess situations when they come up. Like, the next time she wants to hiss at Gabriel Aubry or Olivier Martinez during a kid exchange, she should take a moment and think, “Okay, how many hours on a therapist’s couch will this be?” and go from there. If the answer is one or more, maybe save the fight for an email.
Here’s Halle looking like an extra from a budget made-for-TV remake of Waterworld at the premiere of Kidnap in Los Angeles on Monday night.
