the currys

Congratulations to Ayesha Curry who is reportedly expecting another baby girl with husband Golden State Warrior NBA champ Steph Curry. Last month, a source to US Weekly leaked the news that hasn’t yet been confirmed by the couple.

The Currys drew the adoration of the general public after their 2-year old daughter Riley was seen during Steph’s post-game events being mischievously cute. She made a second appearance at another event. Since then, it’s been all about the Currys.

Ayesha is in her final month of pregnancy and expecting soon. If the baby waits a little longer, she may arrive on the July 12th birth date of her big sister.

The countdown is on….

 

Tamera Mowry-Housley on why braids are best for Labor, Delivery and New Motherhood

 

tamera mowry braids

The other half of our fave celeb mom twins, Tamera Mowry-Housley is now sporting long box braids.

The actress, who co-stars as a panelist on the daytime talk show The Real,  this past Wednesday, July  1 welcomed her second child, daughter Ariah Talea, with husband FOX news correspondent Adam Housley.

This week, she posted a photo of herself when she was still pregnant rocking the protective style which is commonly worn among ethnic women.

Many pregnant women get their hair in braids right before giving birth because they know it will be a low maintenance style that is great to wear during labor and delivery. And afterwards,  when a new mom is busy with a newborn, braids are a no-fuss style. Those reasons are among the 5 Tamera explained why she got some gorgeous long box braids.

They’re not as long as the super butt-length braids her sister Tia Mowry Hardrict rocked recently.

Tamera had her own individual take and they  look great!

Christie Brinkley denies shading ex Billy Joel’s surprise wedding to his young pregnant girlfriend 

While entertaining friends at their annual Fourth of July party on Saturday, veteran musician Billy Joel and his pregnant longtime girlfriend, Alexis Roderick, had a surprise wedding.

Joel’s longtime friend New York Governor Mario Cuomo presided over the ceremony that took place at Joel’s Long Island estate.

Shortly after the news broke, Joel’s ex-wife Instagrammed a seemingly shade-filled congratulatory message.

“Congratulation to the glowing bride and groom,” she captioned a wedding photo of the newlyweds. ” And to my daughter Alexa, who has a wonderful friend in Alexis! Wishing the growing family every happiness!”

The ex-model, who was married to Joel for 9 years, have a now 29-year old daughter who is close in age to Roderick who is 34. Some interpreted the message as a jab.

This is Joel’s fourth marriage and the first for the former Morgan Stanley Investment banker’s first as well as her first child she is expecting this Summer.

This will be Joel’s second child.

His first marriage to his former music partner’s ex wife Elizabeth Webber Small produced no children and neither his 5-year marriage to columnist and TV host Katie Lee after his marriage with Brinkley.

After the all the press speculation of malice in Brinkley’s message, her publicist cleared the record, telling MailOnline :

There was by no means a cynical angle here and to say this is a backwards compliment, is not the truth nor was it the intention. Christie genuinely cares for Alexis, Billy’s new bride, and their daughter Alexa loves her, too. It was a happy and loving event and her Instagram reflected that sentiment.

Given the fact that Brinkley attended Joel’s wedding to Lee who was 23-years old at the time while Alexa, then 18, served as Maid-of-Honor, it’s pretty safe to say there indeed wasn’t any ill-intent to the well-wishing as the exes have remained good friends.

Brinkley has her hands full solo parenting a 17-year old son, Sailor, with fourth husband architect Peter Cook (Joel attended that ceremony) and 20-year old son, Jack, with her third husband, real estate developer Richard Taubman.

 

 

Fun Fact: Joel played his 65th show at Madison Square Garden last Wednesday — surpassing Elton John as the artist with the most concerts at the arena.

Study agrees with Kim Kardashian; Selfies are Empowering

selfish

CNN.com posted an article last week asking if selfies empowering or objectifying.

It was a question posed on the heels of the release second time mom-to-be Kim Kardashian‘s new book of selfies called, “Selfish“.

The sex-kitten is known for posting provocative photographs that tantalize her 37 million Instagram and 33 million Twitter followers.

At a recent event, Karadashian-West agreed that the selfies she take objectify her but that added that they are also empowering.

“I’ve taken them,” the business owner confessed. “I’m proud of them. There’s power in that. There’s a control. Even if I’m objectifying myself, I’m OK with that.”

CNN.com cited an expert who suggested that selfies can be damaging to women and young girls’ self-esteem because they cause women to be more critical of their own appearance and to self-critique. The article also pointed to an InStyle magazine survey that says young women who watch fashion magazines and spend a lot of time on Facebook compare themselves to others.

The InStyle research noted that “89% of women said getting a ‘like’ on Facebook or Instagram felt like a compliment, while 82% said that getting compliments on social media improved their self-esteem.”

I’ve definitely seen several examples of women who feel compelled to post more and more provocative photos of themselves in their search for as many likes as possible.

However, I tend to think it’s a reflection of already existing low self-esteem in a person. I am not sure whether selfies exacerbates the problem, either. It just provides a means and social media the forum for these young women and girls to get validation.

women social media

And  the final result of the InStyle survey is that social media actually help young women’s self-esteem.

“I think that it’s a really beautiful thing that anyone, anywhere can post a selfie and they don’t have to be a celebrity,”21-year old New York University student Valerie Kipnis is quoted as saying. “Selfies are going to reset the standards of beauty and how people view themselves.”

True.

Unlike traditional mass media where a few powerful magazines selected and picked who they felt were the most beautiful to be featured, social media lets anyone with a smart phone snap themselves and share it with the world.

Sefies posted in social media represent an injection of many more images of women who are beautiful in their own way. More exposure of different types of attractiveness can contribute to broader acceptance of those with features and looks that were once ostracized and rejected.

What do you think?

Are selfies good or bad for the self esteem?

Congratulations to one half of our favorite celebrity twins Tamera Mowry-Housley who welcomed her second child, daughter Ariah Talea Housley on Wednesday.

Tamera and her husband Adam Housley  confirmed the news to PEOPLE magazine.

“We are beyond overjoyed and blessed with our beautiful baby girl. Aden already made a welcome video for her,” they shared with the site.

The new arrival has the same initials as her 2 1/2-year old brother: Aden Tanner Housley.

It’s similar to the tradition her parents had of giving all their children the same initials: TDM.

The Real talk show co-host announced her pregnancy news in January and her hubby shared the gender live on air during the show, much to Tamera’s surprise as she had asked him to conceal the baby’s sex from her.

Adam and Tamera’s twin Tia Mowry Hardrict both tweeted out their own personal notes of glee about the delivery.

We are sure Ariah will be as gorgeous as her baby bro.

Aww! Congrats!

Inside Naya Rivera’s ‘Tee Pee’- inspired Nursery

Glee alum actress Naya Rivera showed off her neutral toned nursery inside an exclusive shoot for  MyDomaine.

The beautiful petite mom-to-be and her husband since July 2014 Ryan Dorsey are expecting their first child in a couple of months.

Rivera revealed in the feature that she built the entire nursery around a cute black and white Tee Pee she discovered at LandOfNod.

From there,the Devious Maids star added neutral elements, sentimental items, and other eclectic and unique pieces.

“I love so many things in the nursery, but my favorite would have to be the bird chandelier,” Rivera said about the copper wire piece hanging from the ceiling. “It’s so fun and adds a pop of color and youth!”

The black and white accessories like the Eivor throw from Ikea were added to accommodate the fact that babies see in black and white for the first few weeks of their lives.

She did add pops of color to mix up the black, white, cream and gray.

“My favorite item in the bookshelf is the photo of Ryan and I at our wedding, and the baby’s ultrasound picture,” Rivera shares. “You can see the baby’s face so clearly!”

Her designer Angelo Surmelis was going for a gender neutral design that was still kid-friendly.

Rivera posted a quick snippet of the behind the scenes video from the shoot on her Instagram account.

Everything works well though we think the patterned wall paper is a bit too much stimulation for a nursery where baby is supposed to be sleeping in and not playing. Perhaps she will tone it down later.
