People of Bravo TV Reality TV show stars use the increased exposure to massive audiences to launch new businesses all the time
Many pen cookbooks (Teresa Giudice), launch clothing labels, swimsuit lines (Dorit) create YouTube channels and exercise DVDs (Phaedra Parks).
Over the years, when they’re not hawking flat tummy tea and other obscure products on their social media accounts, many have partnered up to White Label products manufacturers to sell a variety of products as well, using their name and brand to bolster sales. No marketing needed when you have access to 1M + active and engaged following in social media. It is a no-brainer!
I’ve seen it all but usually the usual stuff: hair care products (Kenya Moore Of RHOA), make up (Robyn Dixon & Giselle Bryant of RHOP)
Kudos to Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams who branched out of the expecetes and sells $15 Sheet sets through her new Pampered by Porsha website.
The first-time mom-to-be recently starred in an ad campaign for her new brand, draping her belly in one of her red sheets.
Williams revealed recently during an episode of host Andy Cohen’s y’all show Watch What Happens Live After show that she is more than half way through her pregnancy.
She talked about her pregnancy while on the show.
“I am in my second trimester, so I am definitely more than halfway through the pregnancy,” Porsha shared. “I’ve been feeling good,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star adds.
Williams goes on to tell Shamari how her unborn daughter is developing inside of her mom’s stomach. “Baby PJ is so big,” Williams shares. “She’ll be really, really low, down towards my vagina at night, and then during the day, she’s like up high, to where I can’t really breathe.”
Congrats to Ayesha Curry and husband NBA MVP Steph Curry on the birth of their son Canon W. Jack
The cookbook and cooking show host announced the news on her Instagram page.
“Our beautiful baby boy Canon W.Jack Curry 7/2/2018,” she captioned a photo of her daughters Riley and Ryan cradling their baby brother. “He joined us earlier than we thought and we couldn’t be more excited and grateful. Family of 5!”
Third-time mom-to-be Ayesha Curry is no different.
Fresh off the success of a best-selling cook book, a Food channel network show and a retail kitchenware line, Curry has announced on her Instagram that she and her family are launching a wine business called Domaine Curry, and her restauranteur partnership with Chef Michael Mina are opening a new restaurant in their International Smoke chain in Houston.
She is also styling as she coasts into her last trimester in pregnancy and has time to cheer on her 5-year old daughter Riley who is a budding equestrian, and her husband Steph Curry who is 4-games deep into the Western conference NBA finals, and doing mommy and me fashion with her 2-year old daughter Ryan! Love it. Look:
This past weekend was a busy one with the BAFTA Awards, the Black Panther movie opening and the 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend.
A couple of our current Bellyitch Bumpwatch mamas showed up and out including third-time mom-to-be Ayesha Curry who rooted on her husband Goldenstate Warriors star player Steph Curry as he lead Team Curry. They lost to our Bellyitch alum Savannah Brinson James‘ husband LeBron James team but that didn’t stop Ayesha from bigging up her man in an instgram post.
“W my love celebrating last night. So proud of you,” the cook book author captioned a photo of herself in an AC/DC tee, casual sweats and a leather jacket with the 2017 NBA MVP crouching down giving her bump a kiss.
First time mom-to-be Khloe Kardashian attended the “Game is Everything” dinner kicking off the weekend with her beau Cleveland Cavalier Tristan Thompson.
LeBron James was named All-Star MVP for the third time in his career this past weekend at the 2018 NBA All-Star game. James handpicked his team and then carried it to victory in a win for “Team LeBron” over “Team Stephen” on Sunday.
Kevin Hart and his wife Eniko Parrish Hart and kids were there as was Beyonce taking selfies with daughter Blue Ivy Carter and mama Tina Lawson and her husband Richard Lawson nearby.
Ayesha Curry is not having a go at it this third pregnancy which makes me think she is having a baby boy this time.
The third-time mom-to-be posted a pregnancy update on her blog this week.
“I️ wish I️ could say I️ feel like a maternal goddess drifting through my pregnancy unscathed by acne, nausea and the occasional ‘oops I️ peed a little,’ but that would be a lie,” the cookbook author wrote. “I️ am a little over 4 months and basically almost halfway through my pregnancy.”
She added: “I️ still have nausea, can’t sleep, pee every 5 seconds and am just so darn tired. I️ have what docs call Hyperemesis. This basically means the nausea, incessant sickness and exhaustion probably won’t go away.”
Curry then compared her condition to the same one that hamstringed the Duchess of Cambridge Catherine.
”The only silver linings here are that my itty bitty baby is healthy and Princess Kate has suffered from the same condition during her pregnancies. Not feeling super royal though.”
My pregnancies with my boys were just as she described and my girl was a breeze. I think these different symptoms explains a lot. I may be wrong. We will see.
Curry, who also has a line do Home pedicure that sell at Target, has two daughters 5-year old Riley and 2-year old Ryan with husband, NBA Star Steph Curry.
TV Chef Ayesha Curry is no stranger to online criticism and she recently had to clap back once again, this time to mommy shamers who seemed to resent her for posting photos of her children and not her nanny. Right?!
While enjoying some down time with her husband during a quick vacay in the UK, the purveyor of the food delivery biz Homemade paused to show off a little slide show presentation of their excursions to her fans and followers in social media.
The positive feedback to the share was interrupted by a troll who asked,”Can the nanny get in the pic too?
He/She or It continued: “We know you aren’t doing the heavy lifting yourself. Wasn’t Riley in this outfit 2 days ago? This pic wasn’t from yesterday. Great on your bro for that free trip.”
While we usually shy away from giving shine to the few squeaky wheels that make the most loud and obnoxious noise for attention, it is really hard to avoid them because their toxicity and harshness can grate the nerves of even the most thick-skinned individual.
Not one to let all the negative ninnies get the last word, Curry clapped back:
“Definitely have a nanny and my mother helping me on the trip. I work a full-time job on top of being a mom like many women do every day. Love every second of it. It takes a village to raise children. Assuming you don’t have any with cryptic and presumptuous comments like these. Please carry on and try your best to do it with positivity and a smile. Women can be mama’s and working women and be great at both. Don’t box us in.”
