‘Shah’s of Sunset’ MJ Javid Silences Her ‘Fake Pregnancy’ Trolls

Several celebs have been trolled by people on the internet who are convinced they are not really pregnant but faking it while a surrogate really carries their child. Beyonce, Danielle Jonas, Meghan Markle and Kenya Moore have had to dodge fake pregnancy rumors during and after delivery.

Bravo TV star of Shahs of Sunset Mercedes “MJ” Javid is the latest.

The 46-year old is pregnant with her first child, a son, after undergoing in vitro fertilization.

The real estate biz owner has been on bedrest for the most part of her later stages of pregnancy following a few complications but despite giving fans glimpses of her baby bump on her Instagram page, she is still routinely harassed by many to show a mirror selfie of it while standing up.

The maternity shoot which is featured exclusively in PEOPLE magazine today should do the trick to get them off her back, according to a recent post.

“Thank you @people for such beautiful coverage of our baby journey thus far,” she captioned a photo from the shoot which featured multiple images of her in lingerie, and with her belly bare and clearly visible. “As I continue to share my experience with families with whom I share this life goal, I hope my experience provides support, hope and positive thinking for others.”

She continued: “Today, I am grateful to my husband and family for the incredible support I’ve received in getting us this far. I know we have so much more ahead. I am blessed to work with incredible photographer, @shannonlaurine and my glam squad, @brandonliberati and @makeupbymarine all of which together we celebrate the female form during this incredible God given opportunity 🙏 #bumpalert

She addressed the body shaming and fake pregnancy accusations in the magazine.

“A lot of people on social [media] have already come at me for faking my pregnancy,” she says, saying for example, “My face doesn’t look pregnant, my nose doesn’t look swollen, my bump isn’t big enough, I am using a surrogate, I am making this up for attention.”

But she’s staying strong.

“I don’t mind the shaming, I just think it’s very odd that so many people would think a woman would make a choice to lie about something so important,” she explained. “I think if I get mom shamed, I’m not going to care … if anyone wants to mom shame or bully someone in general, they should bully me because I won’t be affected.”

You’d think that would be the end of it. Nope!

The photo garnered a lot of attention but did not stop folks in the comment section a.k.a. the peanut gallery from criticizing the photo edits, and some still said it wasn’t her real belly.

So..she felt the need to follow up with a non-glam bump photo for the haters.

“And a no filter, no make up, no suntan, at home baby bump selfie, to shut down all the haters who have a problem with a woman getting out of bed after 3 and a half months of bed rest to get a little hair and make up for her maternity photos. 😘” she captioned a selfie photo in sweats at home.

She previously addressed the hounding on an Instagram Live, ask me anything session with fans.

” My due date is on May 11 and people are saying ‘Why aren’t I showing, why I aren’t I showing?’ I think that it’s a combination of two things: the first thing is that people don’t always show when they’re only 19 weeks, which is where I’m at. Number two: I’m not stick thin,” she said. “I think that from the side I’m definitely thicker and that I’m getting there, but I don’t think that people always show that early.”

You cannot please people so it’s better off not trying. I don’t know how celebs do it being constantly judged and picked apart.

Wait until that baby comes. She can see how folks are tearing into new moms like Chrissy Teigen, Kenya Moore, Gabrielle Union and now Porsha Williams to get a taste at the levels of unsolicited advice and shaming in store.

Oy! Good luck, MJ!

Celebs Accused of Faking Their Pregnancy: Kenya Moore, Kim K, Beyonce, Danielle Jonas

Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, Kenya Moore Daly continues to be dogged with and by rumors that she is faking her pregnancy and it seems no matter how many bare bump photos or pics of her cast mates cradling her belly she posts, there are always people in her comments expressing disbelief that the 47-year old former Miss USA is really expecting her first child.

Even recently, when she posted a cute Instagram photo of her hubby restauranteur Marc Daly feeling her baby kicks, she still had haters decrying the authenticity of the moment. Ugh!

She was all smiles in the photo captioned, “#marcdaly wasn’t ready for #babydaly’s kicks today 😝❤️#babybump#babykicks #ThatsMrsDalyToYou.”

It is amazing to me. She is not the only one. Beyonce and Danielle Jonas both were trolled all Pregnancy and beyond when they each had their first kid.

Kim Kardashian was too and was  BravoTV‘s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills former cast member  Adrienne Maloof but way after the fact.

One season of the hit series focused on a rumor that Maloof had used a surrogate to birth her children so as not to “ruin” her body, but lied about actually being pregnant and going through labor and delivery to save face and not come off as being a superficial and vain person.

Meanwhile, who aren’t accused of faking their pregnancy?

Celeb women who barely look pregnant even at 5-months along like Remy Ma or who undergo an entire 40 weeks pregnant undetected and just crop up with a set of twins like Anna Kournikiva did!

It is quite interesting to me who gets the suspect treatment and who escapes it.

10 celebrities who enjoyed sponsored baby showers



Danielle Jonas and her husband Kevin celebrated a baby shower thrown by Fit Pregnancy magazine. The couple were featured in the magazine’s latest issue. This was their second baby shower. Earlier last month, the stars of  Married to Jonas shared the bounty of presents they scored at an initial baby shower thrown by family and friends. 
It is not uncommon for moms and dads-to-be to receive multiple baby showers. Often times, a family member or close friend will host one for close ties, the workplace will throw a work shower and if there is family in a remote location, there will be a shower thrown there so those back home can also celebrate and shower the new parents. 
For celebrities, often times brands and media organizations will also host a shower as the case with the Jonases. Below are pics from other brand-hosted showers thrown for celebrity moms-to-be:

Burt’s Bees was among the sponsors of Kourtney Kardashian’s baby shower when she was pregnant with daughter Penelope.

Le Bebe CoCo  was among Kristin Cavallari‘s baby shower sponsors

 
And  also Holly Madison‘s who donated her gifts to the charity Baby2Baby.

Target hosted Beverley Mitchell’s baby shower.

The Sopranos Jamie Lyn-Sigler donated some of her baby shower finds to the Baby Buggy charity.

 

Several liquor companies provided the libations for cocktails served up at Love and Hip Hop’s  Yandy Smith‘s baby shower.

Jaime King enjoyed some fab brand goodies at her shower. 
 Ecoya‘s Sweet Pea & Jasmine home fragrance collection, a pink Quinny Buzz Special Edition stroller, a mamaRoo baby swing, a pink Hoppop Bath tub, a pink Little Giraffe Luxe Blanket, a Timi and Leslie diaper bag and a 5 ft. custom-made giraffe by Melissa and Doug all contributed to Victoria Beckham‘s baby shower. 



Belly Bandit sponsored Jewel’s baby shower.

Pregnant Celebrities who don’t share bump progression pics accused of faking it: The Jwoww Case Study

So this week, Jersey Shore  reality TV star of the longtime MTV hit, Jenni “JWoww” Farley teased some of her 3.58 million Twitter followers on an upcoming bump photo. Since the Snooki and Jwoww star announced her pregnancy with fiance Roger Matthews last December, she is yet to share an all-out baby bump photo.
Interestingly enough, the comments to the post she linked with details about a teal one-shoulder Rissa of LaBling dress she wore October 2013 on Chelsea Handler‘s talk show this week piqued accusations that she isn’t really pregnant at all.
“Maybe she is not carrying the baby?? Maybe she has a surrogate?” one named Chloe questioned.
“I bet she faking a preg I think she adopting a baby!!” another named Joan added.
And thus the convo diverted to commentary about whether she is pretending to be pregnant as a publicity stunt.
Recall Danielle Jonas and Kevin Jonas‘ first pregnancy was similarly dogged by similar rumors and infamously Beyonce as well.
One might notice that a sure sign a celebrity woman is pregnant is when she ordinarily posts non-stop selfies of her full body on social media but suddenly shares only face pics. It could be she is uncomfortable with her changing body and not yet figured out how to dress her bump or she is just keeping the news under wraps until the critical first trimester passes.
It may very well be that Jwoww didn’t wait the three months and shared the news immediately and thus has not really started to show much. 
The speculation is unwarranted even if she is farther along because many women don’t show until well into their second trimester and others do a great job in hiding the bump under baggy or loose clothing.
This incident may reveal a new disturbing trend among baby bumpwatch fans and followers of celebrities who announce their pregnancy. If they don’t reveal a bump or show a “normal” progression, they may be dogged by fake pregnancy rumors.

What do you think?

Danielle and Kevin Jonas welcome daughter amidst Fake pregnancy rumors

Congratulations to Danielle Jonas and hubby Kevin Jonas of the Jonas Brothers on the birth of their daughter on Superbowl Sunday, February 2.
This is the first child for the former hairdresser turned reality TV star and eldest Jonas brother. The couple married in 2009 and announced last summer that they were expecting their first kid together.
Like Beyonce, the couple have been plagued with fake pregnancy and fake baby rumors as seen in this IB Times article and a  Crushable post which claims to break down how fake the baby is.
The Crushable article has managed to get a lot of people on board with the conspiracy theory but there are many clues in the article revealing that the author has never had a baby before. She questions a doctor visit with the baby’s heartbeat shared in Instagram because there is no video image of the baby, but dopplers take the baby’s heartbeat and have nothing to do with a video or video monitor. The monitor just happened to be sitting there. Thee photos she posted in IG where her tummy was flat were possibly old photos before the pregnancy. There are so many holes in the piece to go into that it’s not worth it. 
But what I did appreciate was the Instagram video Kevin shared with the baby moving inside Danielle’s tummy. That was THE best feeling during pregnancy inside and out. So cool of Kevin to catch that on video. 
The conspiracy theorists are wack! But um getting a baby detergent brand to sponsor your first photo release, hmmmm. Can’t knock the hustle. 
Congrats guys!
