Poor Erica Packer

Image credit
I read in the Sun Herald at the weekend that Erica Packer (model and wife of billionaire James Packer) is "revelling in motherhood".

She is barely seen without her two toddlers in tow (Jackson aged 1 and Indigo aged 2) although she is accompanied by their nanny.

She is often seen visiting her mansion in Vaucluse where her children are having swimming lessons (no doubt with Ian Thorpe as the instructor) where she escapes from her multi-million dollar 'fishbowl' in Bondi.

She cherishes her time with her family (let's face it James is the 3rd richest guy in Australia and is hardly likely to have a 9-5 schedule) but they find time at the weekends to relax aboard Z Sydney, their $20 million, 46m Mangusta 165 motor yacht, or at Erica's favourite place, Ellerston, the family's Hunter Valley estate, where James and Indigo bond over horse riding.

She leads such a 'normal' stay-at-home Mum life, doesn't she?

Stories about celebrity moms always make me smirk a little. Just the other day I read about Gwyneth Paltrow giving parenting advice and I about fell out of my chair laughing. I mean she's a nice woman, but her level of empathy for most moms' situations is well below zero.

I would love to have a nanny to help me out with my stay at home duties.

Lucy said...

Bless. The heart bleeds.

I am kind of suspecting that she is not running a mental budget tally when she juggles the cost of school fees with the price of petrol or wondering whether how to pay the rego on the car?

Oh my, that is not really stay at home mum material. Who wouldn't revel in it when you have all of that.

Oh i agree! Nothing shits me more than people pretending they're hard done by when money is the least of their concerns.
Honestly i just wish these multi millionaries would stop and think of the less fortunate. People who struggle to afford groceries to feed their kids as well as make the rent, nevermind all the different houses they have and poor her having everyone watch her everwhere she goes. If only that were the least of my problems.

totally normal stay at home mum life...

But I have got to run, my Personal Trainer is calling and the 2nd Nanny can't seem to find the kid's stylist...

honestly, it is just one thing after the other, isn't it?

Celebrity mums don't piss me off, it's the media outlets that think it constitutes news. I used to enjoy reading mags for the gossip, but after 3 pregnancies, 3 kids and a full-time mummy load, I just don't have time for any of it. Blogs are far more fresh and interesting - real people with mostly daily updates. Can't beat it.
I don't care if Dannii Minogue looks hot after a baby. I would hope she has more pressing things to be concerned about with a bub under her care.

He he he... poor thing! A nanny and a massive income and she still can't get away from the little buggers!

Good Golly Miss Holly! said...

Fuck. Me. Don't know how the poor love manages ...

Hunter valley is one of the great natural beauty on the earth.It's a really good approach
to spend vacation in Hunter Valley.
But the question of accommodation comes up when you plan to stay there for a few days.

There's nothing wrong with being wealthy. Most wealthy people have worked hard to create their wealth. Wealthy mothers have to manage motherhood too. Sure, it's much easier for them as they have the money to hire help/cooks etc, but it doesn't lessen the fact that they too are tired, stressed and overwhelmed sometimes.

The issue is when wealthy mothers compare their lives to regular mothers' lives. It's non-comparable. THAT'S what irritates "us".

Maxabella said...

Ugh. Those 'celebrity mothers' annoy me no end. At least she's not being a Gwyneth Paltrow and advising us on what to do... for that I am grateful! x

Life In A Pink Fibro said...

She is just an average Stay-At-Mansion mum.

Mandy said...

Ah yes, the life of the rich and famous - such a difficult one ... I wonder, who changes the nappies - cleans their butts - wipes up sick ... probs the poor old nanny (although I suspect even the nanny gets paid more than me?) ...

Kymmie said...

Oh, I'm feeling pretty badly for this poor girl. Well, at least she's not moaning. I might just slap her around her head if she was! xx

Kelley @ magnetoboldtoo said...

It must be so damn hard.

I mean she might even have to take time away from her personal trainer to yell at the cook for not serving enough vegetables...

It is a hard hard life.

Heh
