Full House  star Candace Cameron Bure, who will reprieve her role as DJ Tanner in a much-anticipated Netflix b revival of the 90s show, will be one of the main panelists.

She will join a returning Joy Behar along with cast regular Whoopie Goldberg, Michelle Collins, and Raven-Symone and another new member Paula Faris of ABC News.

What a diverse cast!

Celebrity Mom Experts Backlash: Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Mama v. Critics

From Kristin Cavallari and Jenny McCarthy‘s vaccine stances, to Snooki’s expert book on parenting published within the same year of delivering her first baby to Jessica Alba‘s Honest company  to the numerous celebs who’ve launched maternity (Jessica Simpson, Heidi Klum, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Victoria Beckham) and baby clothing lines beyond, there seems to be a refreshed backlash against celebrity mom parenting experts of late.
Recently,  Gwyneth Paltrow and her controversial statements comparing Hollywood and 9-5 moms, and her reportedly pretentious stance on parenting were the subject of quite a few news articles.
And now, the latest celebrity mother to face the ire and snark of critics is Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Alicia Silverstone.
The Clueless star’s latest book “Kind Mama: A Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, A Radiant Pregnancy, A Sweeter Birth and a Healthier, More Beautiful Beginning” triggered such a visceral response from Herald Sun  writer Wendy Tuohy that she lashed out  against it and other celeb experts  in a commentary on the site. 
It starts: 

IN BREAKING news from Hollywood, parents who don’t sleep with their baby are guilty of borderline neglect, nappies are bad for babies (they should do their business “in the grass”), post-natal depression is what you get for doing your diet wrong — oh, and tampons can give you infertility.

And it doesn’t get kinder from there! Oy! Read the entire piece HERE
No doubt, because of their high profile and huge following, celebrity parents are able to use their strong brand presence among general audiences to secure clothing lines, book deals and command a platform to espouse whatever they wish. 
What are your thoughts generally? Understandable cashing in on their branding to make a living or exploiting their impressionable audiences for a quick buck?

Ciara confirms pregnancy on The View (VIDEO)

Twitter-Jenny McCarthy
R&B Pop princess Ciara confirmed on ABC’s The View what we and many others have suspected: she is pregnant with her first child with her fiance Hip Hop artist Future
When co-host Barbara Walters asked her if she wanted to confirm her pregnancy, Ciara replied, “Yes” then stood up to show off her big bump.
Co-host Jenny McCarthy tweeted the above photo of herself with Ciara after the segment.
Recently, Ciara had been only posting old photos or head only photos on her Instagram account for awhile now but really got people suspicious when she went to a charity event last December wearing a big baggy sweatshirt and sweatpants. 
The svelte sexy songstress is known for wearing snug and skin-baring outfits.
The Body Party singer and Future got engaged last October. The Atlanta-based recording artist proposed to the Ciara during a special birthday dinner for the 28-year-old pop star. Future has three kids from previous relationships. 
A television viewer captured the moment and shared it on his Instagram account:
