#PhilandoCastile and #AltonSterling: Celeb Moms Who’ve Spoken Out About Killings

candles

Tonight, we’ve reached a tipping point in America as several Dallas police officers were killed during a rally to protest recent police shootings. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of those men and women who put their lives at risk daily to protect and serve.

Here is a rundown of what sparked the rally followed by solidarity messages from celeb women we’ve featured on the blog:

Within 48 hours, two black men in “concealed weapon license to carry” states exercising their rights to have guns in their pockets were nonetheless shot and killed by police officers. Both killings, one execution style and the other in front of a 4-year old child during a routine traffic stop, has sparked outrage.

Alton Sterling was selling CDs outside of a grocery store in a high crime neighborhood and exercising his Second Amendment rights as an American, carried a weapon to protect himself. Someone reported to the police that Sterling had it out waving at people and after scuffle with the officers who arrived at the scene and eventually took Sterling down, another took out his revolver and emptied a couple of rounds into Sterling’s body before falling off the man’s chest and shooting a few more shots. The store owner and another eyewitness filmed the shootings on their smartphones and circulated it on social media. The outrage has been swift.

That same night, another man, Philando Castile, was driving with his girlfriend Diamond Reynolds and her 4-year old daughter in the backseat when he was pulled over for a busted tail light. Diamond turned on her Facebook Live and shared the incident as it happened with her followers on the social media site. The world was witness to the moments immediately after one officer shot him as he reached into his pocket to pull out his driver’s license as asked to do so by the officer, per Reynold’s account. The officer can be overheard on the video saying “ignorance”.

As with other past police killings of unarmed black men and boys, many parents have been shaken by the incident especially parents of young black boys. In social media, many have expressed fear that when their children grow up, they will be seen as menacing threats simply for being in the skin they were born in and could be the next hashtag.

I know personally, I’ve talked to my kids again as my husband and I do periodically throughout their lives to make sure they are aware what they need to do to escape a possible police encounter alive. My father in law is a retired veteran police detective and my husband’s uncle was a police officer. We fear for the lives of blue and believe Blue Lives Matter as well, but at the same time, we are frightened by the pattern of brutality among some officers.

BET Awards Arrivals, Beyonce and DJ Khaled’s Pregnant Fiance

BET White carpet

The BET Awards went down last night, June 26, at  the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. The celebration included awards, performances and several tributes to the late great pop icon Prince.

Instead of a red carpet, stars like our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Fantasia, Tia Mowry, Alicia Keys and Eva Marcille walked the white carpet in some very fashion forward designs.

A blog fave Beyonce hit the stage to perform her song “Freedom” off of her last project Lemonade. She was joined by rapper Kenderick Lamar. The two opened the show and shut it down at the same time! It was the best performance of the night in my opinion.

Finally, we peeped Mrs. Knowles tour mate DJ Khaled with his longtime girlfriend and now fiance Nicole Tuck who is in her second trimester pregnant with the couple’s first child. Tuck, a wardrobe stylist, and the famous recording artist reside in Miami.

That 4Moms Origami Stroller is a Celebrity Fave

origami stroller

It’s been a long while since I last did my most expensive baby stroller post and since then the market has exploded with some amazing strollers.

One of the top strollers known and widely loved by tech aficionados is the  4moms Origami Stroller. It’s loved because it take the  stress out of traveling about with your kid. I mean it folds and unfolds automatically when you press a button and comes equipped with tech features like a built-in phone charger, thermometer, mileage counter, and LED headlights. If you had any doubt that this is the Rolex of strollers, the Origami Stroller even charges itself as you walk!

It’s on the pricey side but if you can afford it you’ll join the likes of a bunch of celebs who have been photographed out and about with their kids in them. about $850!

Kourtney Kardashian, Rachel Zoe, Tia Mowry, Kim Zolciak, Bethenny Frankel, Melanie Brown, Denise Richards, Kim Zolciak, Neil Patrick Harris and Mario Lopez all have been seen pushing their tots in it.

Is Aoki Lee What Happens When a Celeb Child Grows Being Called Ugly by Public?

aoki lee and ming lee simmons

Ming Lee and Aoki Lee Simmons plant a kiss on their dad Russell Simmons.

Kimora Lee Simmons first two children, daughters Aoki Lee and  Ming Lee have grown to be beautiful young ladies, but having grown in the overly critical public eye has not been easy. This is especially true considering the overemphasis of beauty for young women and how mean the public can be. Social media has been a blessing and curse for celebrities.

On one hand, it gives them access to fans and helps them prove their brand relevance and importance by enabling them to quantify fans.  It can be used as a tool to keep them famous and relevant. On the other hand, social media make it too easy to get direct contact with people in the public eye and along with the good of being able to show off their  filter-free and authentic selves, celebs also open a window and let in all the insecure, petty, jealous and downright meanies who love to troll and diss them too.

And people do not stop when it comes to commenting on the beauty of a celebrity child.

For example, I was doing some online research recently and bumped into Aoki Lee’s Instagram page. I immediately noticed that she doesn’t ever show her face in any of her photos. Now it could be because she wants to de-emphasize her looks seeing as though she is a self-described historian and coder on her page.

It is a contrast from her sister Ming who is as statuesque as their mom and is perfectly fine flossing and showing off her fab self and her fab life that goes with on her Instagram.

We like to drink tea ☕️ A photo posted by Ming Lee Simmons (@mingleesimmons) on

But then I thought that perhaps Aoki hides her face to shield herself from all the negativity that litters the comment section under celebrity social media pages. It’s the type of stuff that has led many to quit social media.

I remember bumping into a lot of shady comments about Kimora’s daughters’ looks on the gossip blogs.

simmons

Thus, there is no wonder some celebs elect to hide their children’s faces from the public. You’ve never even ever seen Kerry Washington or Eva Mendes’ children… ever.

And as I moved over to Ming Lee’s photo, I see that one of the first comments on a really beautiful beach photo comes from a couple of girls calling her ugly and talking bad about her looks.  Most people however reply about her beauty in most of her posts.

And that is a shame that all we care about is the attractiveness of famous people.

#truth.com

It also explains why Beyonce famously shielded her daughter Blue Ivy‘s face when she shared photos of her during her infancy to toddler years. Zoe Saldana is yet to share a photo of her twin boys, Cy and Bowie,  either. Over the pond, singer and TV presenter Rochelle Humes features many snaps of her daughter on Instagram but none of her face.

And those who do like Tia Mowry and Solange Knowles have found themselves having to snap back and put mean trolls in their place who called both their sons ugly, as recently as last year.

Celeb parents can do what they can as long as they can to shield their kids from public scrutiny for as long as possible. It is essential considering the kids never asked for the spotlight. But…the minute they grow into their own and open up their own social media account, they”ll have to face it on their own.

And Aoki’s faceless Instagram page could be an example of one outcome.
