Chelsea Clinton Shares Daughter’s Fave Book

When it comes to family time, Chelsea Clinton always makes it a priority.

Whether it’s supporting mom Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail or helping Former President Bill Clinton with the Clinton Initiative Project, Chelsea likes to keep her loved ones close.

So it should come as no surprise that when the author and activist celebrated her daughter’s first birthday over the weekend, it was family that was at the center of the fun.

“It was great. We had lots of balloons,” she told E! News exclusively. “[Charlotte] loves balloons, lots of bubbles and lots of books.”

Bill added, “The whole thing was a hoot. Oh my gosh, she is unbelievable.”

On Saturday evening, Chelsea even shared a candid snapshot of some mommy-daughter time that included a special story before bed. It’s the simple, but oh-so-sweet moments that Chelsea cherishes every day.

“It was actually “Where Is the Green Sheep?,” which at the moment is one of her favorite books,” the proud mom explained. “She loves to read, which as a mom just makes me so happy.”

In between parenting duties, the author of “It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going!” continues to make time to support the Clinton Global Initiative. As the nonprofit celebrates its 10-year anniversary, E! News’ Maria Menounos couldn’t help but ask about some of the many accomplishments the foundation has made.  

 

“One of the things I am most proud of is all the work the Haiti Action Network has done,” Chelsea explained. “We’re talking about the five million trees that have been planted, tens of thousands of women that have been educated, the 50 schools that now have solar energy.”

Bill added, “I believe the most important thing is we’ve changed the nature of philanthropy. For example, two years ago the Starkey Hearing Aid Foundation was giving out 50,000 hearing aids a year. This year, they are already over 200,000.”

And while the next few months may be extra busy for the Clintons—Decision 2016 anyone?—it certainly won’t stop the family from making a difference.

“I hope in the next 10 years the number of people that we’ve helped will be in the billions,” Bill shared.

Chelsea Clinton announces she is pregnant with first child

Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton is pregnant. She announced the news that she and her husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby during an event in New York today. She told friends and fans on her Facebook page that the baby is due in the fall.
“Marc and I are so thrilled to be expecting our first child in the fall!” she wrote on her Facebook fan page. “Thank you for all of the kind words!”
Chelsea and Mezvinsky, a hedge fund manager, married in 2010 in a dual denominational ceremony. This will be the first child for both. Chelsea’s dad, former President Bill Clinton once told  a crowd at the 2011 World Economic Forum that his wife Hillary Clinton won’t be happy until she becomes a grandmother, USA Today reported. “It’s something she wants more than she wanted to be president,” he said.
Now the question is whether and how will this baby impact Hillary’s 2016 run for the next President of the United States.
Congrats Chelsea! As has been said, is this like a Royal pregnancy for Democrats?

Heroin Chic Lives! Jaime King remembers Davide Sorrenti, heroin past, timely given Hoffman’s death (PHOTOS & VIDEO)

Controversial heroin-glorifying photo featuring Jaime King among famous dead drug addicted Rock icons

This is fitting in light of the heroin overdose death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman this weekend:

Yesterday, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Jaime King shared an image on her Instagram page in tribute to the anniversary of the death of her ex-boyfriend, famed Italian fashion photographer Davide Sorrenti.

“Because I could not stop for Death, he kindly stopped for me. In the Carriage held but just ourselves and Immortality.” –Emily Dickinson #DavideSorrenti #RestInPeace #SKE”  the actress and former model wrote in the revised caption.

In the original caption, however, the Hart of Dixie star used the hashtag #HeroinChic.

It is reference to a style of fashion photography and fashion industry styling that Sorrenti, who came from a family of talented photographers,  and a few other photographers of the late 1990s embraced and promoted as part of their stance of rejecting glossy & glamorous imagery promoted at the time. It was at the cusp of the grunge era.

They chose to instead to portray their reality and the darker elements of that world, which as we all know, often included drug abusing figures. One of Sorrenti’s most controversial photographs was of a strung out and super thin King, who had admitted to being a drug addict starting age 14. Around her in the photo for Hysteric Glamour were famous dead icons who were drug addicts: Kurt Cobain, Sid Vicious, and Jerry Garcia of Grateful Dead (see top). 
The term “Heroin Chic” has outlived Sorrenti, who died at the tender age of just 20-years old. It is reference to a look during the 90s grunge era that the fashion industry adopted as a “trend.” It included dark penciled under eye, emaciated appearance, pale skin, all to resemble the appearance of a heroin addict. 
Of course, the industry’s capitalizing and marketing the androgynous look of drug addiction and making it fashionable and cool caught the ire and outrage of many, leading magazines to apologize and pull entire spreads.
In 1997, US President Bill Clinton spoke out against  “heroin chic” in light of Sorrenti’s death and the industry responded by shifting gears.
But if you click the hashtag in Instagram, as we did after noticing it mentioned on King’s Instagram account, you can see clearly that the look lives on today and is remembered. 
It is almost reminiscent of Thinspiration and ProAna websites and imagery that glorify anorexia, bulimia and rail thinness as a goal among young girls and women. 
Polite society can condemn it all and attempt to quell its prevalence in the mainstream but in the background and underground, it moves around, thrives, finds new homes and fans and essentially lives on…..
