Hustling While Pregnant: Jenna Dewan is Hosting TV Shows and Penning Books



I love actress, dancer and producer Jenna Dewan who is currently expecting her first child with boyfriend of a year Steve Kazee, but is still proving pregnant women do not have to slow down when they are expecting.

I just peeped her new FOX television show Flirty Dancing, which is a US take on a popular UK dating dance show where singles learn a routine and then pair up and dance to see if their dance floor chemistry translates to the dating couch. In the US version, the single dances with two different partners and picks one.

 

The Step Up alum and featured guest star of medical drama The Resident was still quite pregnant in the early version I saw of the show.

This is not the only thing the former World of Dance host has cooking!

She also just released her first book, “Gracefully You” about self-love and self-actualization and has already done in-store appearances in places like Barnes and Noble.

And in between acting appearances in shows like Supergirl, Witches of East End and American Horror Story: Asylum, in June 2017, Dewan founded Everheart Productions, with a focus on producing female-centric stories for film, television and digital platforms. Dewan will star in the scripted musical drama television series  called Soundtrack this winter.

And she’s looking fabulous balancing it all…

The professional dancer is already mother to six-year-old Everly, whose father is Dewan’s ex-husband Channing Tatum.

Thank You Tamera Mowry-Housley for Raising Awareness About C-Section Postpartum Woes

Tamera Mowry-Housley shared some of her own personal insight into some of the pains that women who undergo a C-Section endure when viewers of her FOX panel talk show The Real started to reply to a segment today on the show.

One follower who replied to her general tweet about the realities of C-section especially when you’re nursing.

“I know sum1 whose c-section stitching came undone just from tryin to get out of the shower,” the Twitter user Eunice responded.

To that, The Real co-host said hers “came undone when” she “had to pick up” her son, Aden. Ouch!

Mowry-Housley and her husband FOX News Correspondent Adam Housley welcomed daughter Ariah Talea in July 2015 and son Aden Tanner in November 2012.

What followed was heartwarming and great for awareness building. Many other users offered their own stories which could elevate the understanding among those who have never had a C-section or have misconceptions about it.

I know personally,I could relate to the one about the guts on the tray. My husband almost passed out when she made the mistake of peering over the surgery screen and got an eyefull of entrails! Eeeek!

“Women don’t get enough credit for enduring this surgery(they put your organs on a tray, my Husband looked)&then going right into motherhood,” a woman named Dawn Venosa Mannix added to the discussion.

“It hurt to laugh, sneeze, cough, pee. Everything hurts,” chimed in user named Beach Bunni.  “We still have to care for our newborn while healing. It makes us stronger though.”

So true, sister!

Writing for HuffPo Parents, blogger Kate Auletta offers 9 things no one tells you about C-Section.

DURING THE SURGERY

1. That “mild tugging sensation” line was clearly first said by a man. Mild is perhaps the understatement of the century. You feel like the wind is being taken out of you as your teeth chatter from the anesthesia. This is not a surgery for claustrophobes, as you’re completely stuck on the table — arms pinned down — while the inability to breathe overwhelms you.

IN THE HOSPITAL

2. The catheter keeps you company in the days following birth because you can’t really walk to the bathroom without those trusty ab muscles helping you out (more on that below). And then, as in all cases with a catheter, you have to learn to pee again — the longer the catheter is in, it seems, the harder it is to remember how to pee. Also not fun when you have a nurse and some loved ones waiting outside the bathroom door and you feel like you’re 5 again.

3. Have someone teach you how to even get up and out of bed. Congratulations! Your ab muscles are completely non-existent now. The good news: Your arms are gonna get buff.

AT HOME

4. Do yourself a solid and go to your local drug store (or better yet, send someone else) to buy some big-ass high-waisted underwear. You’re not gonna want anything — zippers, buttons, elasticized underwear — coming near your stomach, especially the birth area, for a while.

5. Walking is a challenge. Your core is called your core for a reason. Go easy on yourself.

6. Those drugs are your best friend. Give yourself some time to wean off the heavy stuff. Stock up on Aleve, which you’ll also need daily, and be prepared to use it A LOT.

7. I’m getting really real here now: Get some Colace. Your first bowel movement will hurt that much more since you have no stomach muscles with which to push. But man, will you be proud when you walk out of that bathroom.

8. You can’t lift anything because of how it can affect your core, and you can’t really lean over to even empty the dishwasher. Basically, best case scenario is that you’re an immobile, milk-producing machine with a baby attached to your breast sideways cause you’re scared he or she will kick the scar.

9. Don’t worry. No matter how your child is born, it’ll still likely be the best thing that ever happens to you, you tired shell of your former self.

Thank you!

Blended Family Rules: ‘The Real’s Adrienne Bailon on Becoming a Stepmom

adrienne bailon

The U.S. Census estimates about 50% of families are some form of stepfamily. The stepfamily has become the modern family.

Today on the FOX daytime panel talk show, The REAL, during its “Girl Talk” segment, co-host Adrienne Bailon discussed becoming a stepmom to her fiancé Israel Houghton’s four children.

During the segment, Hougton (who is visiting but is shown off set to the side), shares what the kids call Adrienne (“A”)  and Jeannie Mai asks what the couple would prefer the kids call here.

“If someone were to say, ‘Who is she?’ What do they say?” Bailon asks Hougton who responds, “They would probably say, ‘My dad’s wife.’  Right, something like that?”

Adrienne disagrees with Loni Love‘s suggestion that the kids may tell their friends that Adrienne is their stepmom, because “it sounds mean,” Bailon states.

Tamera Mowry-Housley then asks Hougton would he be okay with Bailon disciplining the children.

According to our past post about 14 tips for making blended family work, our experts suggests, that the biological parent only should discipline his/her children and the stepparent would only discipline based on rules agreed upon and presented to kids as a couple.”

Adrienne is thus correct in her reply when she tells the audience that she has no intention on sending the kids to their room.

“No, I’m not doing that. We are going to be good cop, bad cop and I am the good one, okay!” she tells Houghton who agrees, ” She’s going to be the good cop.”

WATCH the exchange from this morning!

Cocoa Austin compares bump With hubby’s SVU co-star Kelli Giddish

cocoa austin pregnancy

While visiting the set of her husband Ice T‘s show Law and Order: SVU recently, talk show and reality TV star Coco Austin used the opportunity to update her Instagram fans on her pregnancy and catch up with fellow preggers SVU star, Kelli Giddish.

Of her pregnancy, the buxom host of FOX talk show Ice and Coco wrote in a photo of herself in a paisley halter maxi dress cupping her belly:

So u ask where is my baby bump? Well, basically its going ALL to my boobs.LOL almost 26 weeks & there is still little sight of #babychanel

Again I feel so blessed to be breezing through the stages of pregnancy and hope it doesn’t change. I do wear less heels but honesty my feet haven’t given me problems yet! Instead of working out 3-4 times a week I brought it down to maybe twice a week but then again fitness hasn’t even been a priority..I don’t really crave food that much and have only gained 5 pounds.. I’m not usually a sweets person but I do crave a little at night right before I go to bed now and lastly she’s kicking & moving around like crazy in my belly..I always joke, she’s practicing her yoga!! Haha….. Ok so there is your update. I’m on the set of Law&Order and had some downtime to fill you in

She also posed with Giddish (Det. Amanda Rollins on the show) who is 33 weeks along and who had a less glam, and more laid back natural barfeet boho look going on.

“I love my homegirl @kelligiddish its so cool were preggers at the same time!” Austin captioned the pic.  “LaborDay weekend fun! #svu

Kelli is #33weeks I am #26weeks”.

Giddish, who married husband  Lawrence Faulborn in an intimate ceremony on June 20, is also expecting her first child…just as Austin is with hubby of over a decade, rapper and actor Ice-T.

 

Cool! Looking good ladies!
