Celeb moms at 2015 People’s Choice Awards Red Carpet and Show

Tonight, not only did a Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum  co-host the People’s Choice Awards LIVE from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, California, but several were up for awards and took home statutes at the show controlled by viewers.
Bumpwatch alum Anna Farris and her Moms CBS co-star Allison Janney hosted the event which had our past featured moms up against one another. Scarlett Johansson, Kerry Washington, Zoe Saldana, Tina Fey, Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon, Emily Deschanel, Tea Leoni, Angelina Jolie, Mayim Bialik, Hayden Panattiere, Alyssa Milano, Kate Winslet, Carrie Underwood, Hillary Shelton’s “Lady Antebellum” and Ellen Pompeo were all up for awards in various categories. Lady Antebellum, Underwood and Pompeo won in their categories. While projects and shows starring Winslet (Divergent), Jolie (Maleficent) and Bialik (The Big Bang Theory) won as well.  See winners list here

Anna Farris looked sultry in a Juan Carlos Obando top and fishtail skirt, strappy Jimmy Choo heels, accented with Irene Neuwirth earrings and a Graziela Gems ring.
Anna Farris and Allison Janney, co star of the CBS show Moms coordinated well while hosting the show. Love the matching white pant suit. Very “Twins”-ish! ha!

Hillary Scott was looking fab and showing off leg in a Yigal Azrouel dress, worn with shoes by Ralph Lauren  and a Jimmy Choo purse. Her Lady Antebellum bandmates Dave Haywood  and Charles Kelley looked dapper as well, though Kelley explained on the red carpet to Giuliana Rancic that he had ripped his pants in the inseam on the car ride to the show. oops!

 

Hot Pink was the color Kristen Bell  chose to wear while making her first public appearance since giving birth to daughter Delta this past December. She was rocking an interesting layered  Monique Lhullier dress with silver  Christian Louboutin pumps and accented with  Neil Lane jewelry, and a Jimmy Choo clutch.

I personally loved Giulana Rancic in a mint green Tony Ward dress which gave me a retro 50’s feel and the hair is perfect to match.

Fashion shows’ pregnant celebrity hosts

A few years ago, we blogged about how female film stars were losing out on film projects once producers discovered they were pregnant. That’s why it was refreshing to catch a broadcast of Project Runway’s All-Star featuring a very pregnant Alyssa Milano as a host on the latest season of that show. She hosted it last year as well.
The franchise is quite pregnant lady friendly as creator and original host Heidi Klum was also very pregnant during one past season of the general Project Runway fashion designer contest show.
We also noticed that another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Vanessa Simmons started her gig on Project Runway Threads (the version for child-designers) right after giving birth to her daughter Ava Marie
 last February. 
It must be a thing with fashion shows because Kristin Cavallari starred in season one of the E!  show The Fabulist while she was expecting her second child. 
It’s all good news for the future of working pregnant moms in the industry. Well at least on the small screen.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary adds Baby Bump, Selfie, Hashtag, Tweep & Catfish

No Joke, the Merriam-Webster dictionary added 2nd time mom -to-be Alyssa Milano to its words roster!
Well, not really but it did today add the words “Selfie” and “Baby Bump” which is represented in the Mistresses star’s recent Instagram photo with the caption that included “hashtags” (“#shortpeoplecarrybig #noitsnottwins.”) among the 150 new words.  
It defines:

Baby Bump: the enlarged abdomen of a pregnant woman



Selfie: an image of oneself taken by oneself using a digital camera especially for posting on social networks
Hashtag: a word or phrase preceded by the symbol # that classifies or categorizes the accompanying text [such as a tweet]
Other fun, social media and tech words added and defined indlude:
Tweep: a person who uses the Twitter online message service to send and receive tweets


Catfish: a person who sets up a false social networking profile for deceptive purposes.
Crowdfunding: (pretty much what Kickstarter is) the practice of soliciting financial contributions from a large number of people especially from the online community. 
Social Networking:  the creation and maintenance of personal and business relationships especially online.
Cool. Now if only it can add “mansplaining” the circle would be complete.

L’Wren Scott’s Death: Celeb moms tweet respects to the late designer

Yesterday, former model, business mogul and designer L’Wren Scott  reportedly committed suicide in her New York City apartment. The news broke the afternoon of Monday, March 17 about the tragic loss of the talented fashion maven who also famously dated Rolling Stones‘ lead Mick Jagger for over a decade. She  was said to have been millions of dollars in debt and perhaps was motivated by the financial collapse of her fashion empire. Police are still investigating though they have ruled out foul play.
Meantime, as social media has become the new distribution system for statements from public figures, several of our current and past Bellyitch moms also took to Twitter and Instagram to share public words of support to Scott’s family and Jagger.

Among her closest friend was Nicole Kidman who wore Scott’s designs on the red carpet, and in movies like Eyes Wide Shut, reports US Weekly.
“Nicole and L’Wren were close friends for 25 years,” a spokesperson for Kidman told The Insider With Yahoo. “Nicole is heartbroken and in shock right now and unable to say anything.”
Scott’s death is the latest in a string of high profile suicides and comparable to Alexander McQueen, another notable and talent who also took his life in 2010.

MLK Day: Celeb moms social media share about Dr. King

Some of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch moms of the past few years took to social media this morning to pay homage and send out tweets about Martin Luther King, Jr‘s holiday in the United States today. It’s a federal holiday set aside to pay homage to the birth of a man who led the Civil Rights Movement and encouraged the US government to move towards equality for all its citizens in all regions of the country, regardless of race. He also sparked the movement by empowering people to take peaceful action, through boycotts and marches, to effectuate change.

Today, some who took time to remind their millions of followers of King and his dream, include:

After posting this precious photo of herself nursing her son, Eric Decker Jr., on her Instagram account, over 4,000 people have given their opinion on the act. Most of them are breastfeeding advocates though there is also the usual set that accuses her of doing it for pure vanity. You can check out the verbal sparring HERE.

Similar outcry and reaction happened HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE, over time.
