Was Mel B’s ‘You Will Never Own Me’ VMA Dress Addressing Ex or Simon Cowell?

Mel B wore a personally designed dress with a bold message on it to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday: a sequinned dress with the words “You Will Never Own Me” hand-stitched along the front, according to US Weekly magazine.

“The former Spice Girl arrived at the award show in a sparkly gold body con dress from Discount Universe with spaghetti straps, a V-neckline, and the words “You Will Never Own Me” written in rainbow hues down the front,” Emily Patrick, writing for the site wrote. “She ditched all accessories, letting her statement shift shine, pairing it with bright red pumps, minimal makeup, and her asymmetrical haircut swept over to one side.”

There is speculation as to who that message is addressing.

She is embroiled in a contentious divorce and custody battle with her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte.

A court ordered the America’s Got Talent judge to pay her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte $40,000 per month in temporary spousal support as well as $140,000 in attorney fees and forensic fees on Belafonte’s behalf. The two share a 5-year old daughter Madison. 

But others have speculated that the message was addressed to co-judge on AGT, Simon Cowell, who took a jab at her failed marriage during a broadcast last week.

After an embarrassing technical malfunction on a magician contestant’s performance, Cowell quipped: “I kind of imagine this would be like Mel B’s wedding night. A lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.”

Afterwards, Brown jumped out of her seat, poured her glass of water onto Cowell’s lap and stormed off stage during the live taping.  throwing a glass of water at him, Brown stormed out of the studio despite it being a live taping.

At a red carpet event after that taping, Mel B said of the incident, “He should know that if he says something inappropriate,he is going to get stuff thrown at him.”

She was also already emotional from watching another contestant’s touching performance and hearing a personal backstory.

“[Evie Clair] really made me cry because it made me think about my dad, and my dad recently passed away from cancer also, with an almost eight to nine years struggle. So a story like that from such a young girl really touches my heart,” Mel B told E! News  “She just sounded so beautiful and I couldn’t stop crying, so I go from that to Simon saying something so rude and inappropriate.”

“When I first had Slate, I was driving myself crazy going to every ‘Mommy & Me’ class I could find online! If you know me, you know I can barely stand driving down the street, but I was determined to meet other likeminded moms,” she wrote in a post promoting the Peanut app and website in a sponsored post. “Luckily, I was eventually able to find my ‘mom tribe.’ And then when I got pregnant with Cruz, most of those mamas were expecting as well.”

If you know me, you know I can barely stand driving down the street, but I was determined to meet other likeminded moms.

Congratulations to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave woh announced last week that she is expecting her third child then took to the runway only 4 days later to walk in her co star Kyle Richards New York Fashion Week for her new fashion label and collaboration, Kyle & Shahida, co-designed by Shahida Clayton.

During the show, cast mates walked along seasoned models including former model Lisa Rinna,  Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, and Denise Richards.

Rinna, Mellencamp Arroyave and Richards herself walked, wearing daring bodysuits under bright floral floral robes. Girardi walked in a colorful tunic which is signature to her style under red silk wide leg pants while Kemsley rocked red pans wore red pants with a black tube top under a black blazer, and accented with Femmes Sans Peur heels.

A few days after the show Mellencamp Arroyave  had to defend herself against haters who slammed her walk during the runway show.

“Now, I am no model — I can barely walk down the street properly — but I walked out there feeling good and excite to support my friend,” the 4-time mom-to-be captioned an Instagram post on Thursday. “That quickly shifted when I was hit with the barrage of memes and insta comments throwing negativity at me and my walk.”

Last weekend I had the opportunity to walk in a fashion show during NYFW. Now, I am no model— I can barely walk down the street properly— but I walked out there feeling good and excited to support my friend. That quickly shifted when I was hit with the barrage of memes and insta comments throwing negativity at me and my walk. I can definitely make fun of myself and am in on most jokes but sometimes it just gets to be too much. So I had a big ole cry and felt truly embarrassed— until I remembered this @brenebrown quote: “If you aren’t in the arena getting your ass kicked, I’m not interested in your feedback.” And you know what, I am so damn proud of myself for having the courage to step out of my comfort zone, especially at 15-weeks pregnant in a flesh-colored bodysuit, and do my very best. We cannot control other’s actions, we can only control our own. So now, I’m just gonna smile brighter and keep on strutting. ?Shoutout to @kylerichards18 for absolutely killing it with @kyleandshahida! Such an amazing accomplishment ? #nyfw #babyonboard #bucketlist

A post shared by Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave (@teddimellencamp) on

She was referencing the mean comments that flooded her previous post of the media feedback of the Housewives’ presence during the show.

 

 

“I can definitely make fun of myself and am in on most jokes but sometimes it just gets to be too much,” Mellencamp’s response continued. “I am so damn proud of myself for having the courage to step out of my comfort zone, especially at 15-weeks pregnant in a flesh-colored bodysuit, and do my very best.”

The outfit she wore showed her growing baby bump which she showcased during her announcement last week:

She wasn’t the only person who is not familiar with modeling in the show. Richards also had her daughters, 19-year old Sophia Umansky and 23-year old Alexia Umansky walk in a striped yellow ruffled crop top and skirt with Femmes Sans Peur heels and a tiered ruffled maxi dress, respectively.

Mellencamp Arroyave and husband EdwinArroyave are parents to  5-ear old Cruz Arroyave , 6-year old Slate Arroyave, and 10-year old Isabella Arroyave, Edwin’s daughter from a previous relationship.

She previously shared that she had multiple miscarriages before conceiving her son via IVF

Academy Awards Timeline of Bumps on the Red Carpet

In 2012, Adele welcomed her first child, son Angelo, and the next year, she won an Oscar for Best Song for the and explained having to express breast milk in the bathroom to relieve her engorged breast.

The “Rolling in the Deep” singer missed out on having to be heavily pregnant on the red carpet like several of her fellow A-listers in year’s past.

Oscar has played host to several heavily pregnant

In 1992, Susan Sarandon was almost due with her son Miles

whom she welcomed (with then-beau Tim Robbins) when she was nominated for her role in Thelma & Louise at age 47. (She didn’t win but was nominated 5 times and won Best Actress in 1996 for her role in Dead Man Walking.)

In 1998, Glen Close was 8-months pregnant when nominated for Fatal Attraction.

In 2000, four-time Academy Award nominee Annette Bening was nominated for her role in American Beauty at almost 8 months pregnant with her fourth child with husband Warren Beatty, daughter Ella.

In 2003, Catherine Zeta-Jones accepted the award for Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Chicago while almost full term with daughter Cary with husband .

In 2004, Marcia Gay-Harden was nominated for her role in Mystic River, while pregnant with twins!

In 2006, Rachel Weisz was 7-months preggers with her and

then-boyfriend Darren Aronofsky when she won the Best Supporting Actress trophy for The Constant Gardner.

In 2011, Black Swan star Natalie Portman was 6 months pregnant with her and her choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied,  first son, Aleph when she accepted her Best Actress award.

In 2014, although Kerry Washington was not nominated for an Oscar, she did attend, cradling the baby bump from her first child, Isabelle.

That same year, Chris Hemsworth ’s wife, Elsa Pataky  in 2014 wore blue sequins but maybe made a fashion mistake of wearing it under and not on top of her belly.

Eva Longoria Honored with Walk Of Fame Star, Promotes New Movie On Kimmel

Yesterday, Desperate Housewives alum and first-time mom-to-be Eva Longoria was honored with a Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood, California.

Her good friend Victoria Beckham, who also designed Longoria’s wedding dress when she married media mogul Jose “Pepe” Baston, and her friend Ricky Martin, who sang is hit song “Livin La Vida Loca” at her wedding, attended the occasion along with her friend and Overboard film co star and our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, Anna Farris. 

 The Devious Maids alum recently stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote her role in Overboard, a gender flipped remake of the Kurt Russell/Goldie Hawa cult classic film. 

During the segment, while outfitted in a white bump hugging mini dress and a white duster, Longoria discussed her pregnancy and becoming a first-time mom.

“Yup, all I talk about nowadays is baby stuff,” Longoria, who is about two months away from having her first child with businessman Jose “Pepe” Baston, joked.

Although she says she has been “uncomfortable,” Longoria, who is also a step mom to Baston’s 20-year old son and 13-year old twins, says “feels great.”

 

“Everything’s uncomfortable,” she admitted. “Everything gets bigger. It’s not just your belly, like, I’ve never seen my thighs so big, and my boobs… they’re in the way of everything. It’s hard.”

Discomfort aside, Longoria admitted that she often does forget that she’s even expecting, a sentiment she also recently shared with ET.

“The other day, I was sleeping and the alarm went off, and I was gonna jump out of bed. And I was like, ‘What’s happening? I can’t get up!'” she quipped to Kimmel, adding that she also had another memory lapse recently when she suggested a ski trip to her husband.

“My husband and I were talking about going snow skiing, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, we should go next weekend, we’re free!'” she said. “And he goes, ‘No! You’re pregnant!'”

When the parents to be initially found out Longoria was pregnant, she said her husband was concerned about how they were “going to keep this under wraps.”

“I was like, ‘They’ve been saying I’m pregnant every month for the last 20 years of my life. It’ll be so easy,'” she admitted. “I had a burger, and they’re like, ‘Eva’s pregnant!’ And I had a pizza, and they’re like, ‘Baby bump!’ (we are guilty!)

And finally, the tabloids came out, and they’re like, ‘Eva’s gained weight.’ And I was like, ‘I am pregnant!'”

As for her delivery plans, she shared that both her and Baston’s “large families” will be coming out, though she doesn’t particularly want them to — and especially doesn’t want anyone in the delivery room.

“I don’t want anybody there. I need to absorb this moment by myself,” Longoria confessed. “I’ll end up taking care of them and cooking for them and making sure they’re OK. I don’t have time! But they’re coming.”

The Big Bang Theory’s Melissa Rauch Leads Pregnancy Loss Support PSA

Following up on penning personal essay for Glamour magazine about pregnancy and previous miscarriage from this summer, Big Bang Theory actress

Melissa Rauch is speaking out once again   about the heartbreak of miscarriages, generally to remind other women and their partners that they are not alone.

In that essay, published on July 11, Rauch pens. “Here is the only statement regarding my pregnancy that doesn’t make me feel like a complete fraud: Melissa is expecting her first child. She is extremely overjoyed, but if she’s being honest, due to the fact that she had a miscarriage the last time she was pregnant, she’s pretty much terrified at the moment that it will happen again. She feels weird even announcing this at all, and would rather wait until her child heads off to college to tell anyone, but she figures she should probably share this news before someone sees her waddling around with her midsection protruding and announces it first.’”

Ranch joined others to star in a public service announcement video about miscarriages to encourage dialogue about an experience which affects one out of every four pregnancies, yet still remains largely undiscussed, with many women feeling either too ashamed or alone to speak out about.

Kiele Sanchez (whose real-life miscarriage was written into the second season of Kingdom), Vanna White, June Diane Raphael, Nancy Kerrigan, and others, speak into the camera about how devastating the experience of a miscarriage can be, and how women should feel empowered to come together and support each other through one of life’s most difficult challenges.

 

Rauch’s pregnancy is being worked into the current season of The Big Bang Theory. She plays the character Bernadette’wife of actor Simon Helberg’s Howard Wolowitz

img_8427

Jimmy Kimmel has already tricked audiences into thinking he scored first awareness of Beyonce and Jay Z‘s twins official names when he released a fake story.

But he has taken the prank to the streets. This time, as part of his infamous man on The street interview with random Californians, his correspondent asked passerbys to send good wishes to the twins, adding made up names like Pantene and Neosporin and Zumba and Zika.

“Celebrity baby names are so unusual now,” Kimmel said while introducing the segment. “The rumor actually is JAY-Z and Beyoncé named their kids Rumi and Sir… I hope that’s not true, but we don’t know the names of the twins and I wanted to have some fun with that. So this afternoon we went out on the street and we asked people to congratulate Beyoncé and JAY-Z on their recent arrival with some baby names we made up.”

If 73-year old Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger can be expecting a child (his 8th) with is pregnant ballerina girlfriend, why can’t 60-year actor Mel Gibson be awaiting the birth of a child with his 26-year old girlfriend of two years, Rosalind Ross?

It’s not like anyone would be grilling them and giving them the second degree…as they do, hmmmm, let’s say a 50-year old celebrity woman who selects to have a baby at a later stage in life?  (sarcasm)

Speaking of Melanie, she looked very well about 7 weeks ago after posting a photo of herself on a beach on her Instagram page. I couldn’t help but get disgusted by the old arse surfer boy who commented about how her pregnancy was making her look fat! Ugh! I dislike people sometimes.
