Pregnant Malika Haqq Gets Heat For Promoting Plastic Surgeon

A few folks on the Internets were going after Malika Haqq for a post with a plastic surgeon before she gave birth.

In it, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians frequent guest, posed with famed celebrity doc to the stars Dr. Jason Diamond.

“Stopped by just to see my fav @drjasondiamond and I’m fully book(ed) for my post pregnancy makeover. I can’t wait!” Haqq, who is due to give birth next month, captioned the photo of the two of them smiling ear to ear.

The angry response from fans was swift encouraging her to “not do it”.

A few backed her decision but the next day after posting a series of underwater maternity photos, she clapped back.

“Who said  I was getting surgery?!” Haqq commented back. “I don’t need it. Never have boo boo.”

My thoughts:

1) it was probably a sponsored promotion with a partner that unfortunately, perhaps, failed to include the proper FTC disclosures.

In which case, there is no guarantee that she will actually have get work done right after having a baby and will skip attempting to snap back naturally.

2) If she didn’t intend to get surgery done to expedite the return to her pre-pregnancy shape, she would not be the first. As actress and tv personality Tia Mowry told me years ago at an expo for expecting moms, people were throwing money at her encouraging her to get surgery right after baby

A lot of them do it, I suspect but do not let anyone know about it and lie about dropping the weight by breastfeeding and doing yoga.

your thoughts? Hit me up on Bellyitch in social media  on IG, Twitter, Facebook  and Pinterest!

In the meantime, she was busy promoting Pretty Little Things in a cute underwater maternity shoot:

 

A Trademark Pirate Is Squatting on Kylie Jenner’s Stormi Couture Name

It is not uncommon for celebrities to file for trademarks associated with their children, but as what happened with Beyonce who has had trouble claiming Blue Ivy, Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kylie Jenner is facing a similar hurdle trying to capture the copyright of her daughter, Stormi.

Page Six reports that a company called Business Moves Consulting successfully trademarked the words “Stormi Couture” about a month after the birth of Jenner’s first child with ex Travis Scott in 2018.

It recently filed a challenge to Jenner’s application for that same term asserting that the dual trademark would likely confuse its own customers. The company also claimed that it doubted that Jenner actually had plans to use the mark and comply with the United States Patent and Trademark office’s requirement that the mark  have a “bona fide intent” to be used “in commerce for identified goods or services.”

Jenner has also filed for marks “Kylie Body” and “Kylie Body by Kylie Jenner” on Valentine’s Day. She already owns trademarks on “Kybow,” “Kyliner,” “Glitter Eyes,” “Kylie Baby,” “Lip Kit,” “Kylie Museum,” “Kylie Kon” among others.

The same company was also on the other side of a celebrity child name dispute when DJ Khaled sued it in 2018, claiming that it was selling clothing using his son Asahd’s name.

A Mississippi Brand strategist named Curtis Bordenave is the face behind the company and has successfully trademarked the words Sirius, Z100 and the call letters for a bunch of other radio stations. He trademarked but eventually lost his initial application and claim to Cardi B, Asahd, and the words Radio Station, Call Letters, Mansplain and Alternative Facts. 

According to a Clarion Ledger article about him, the married father of four travels to hair shows and teaches people how to manage their intellectual property.

DEBUNKED: No, Khloe Kardashian Didn’t Go Low Carb To Have a Tiny Baby

I saw an article by the UK Sun suggesting that Khloe Kardashian cut her carbs to have a small baby. It then talked to an expert who expressed concern that restricting your diet over fears of a big baby could have a negative impact on a pregnancy.

The Sun quoted Lorna Marsh, Associate Editor at BabyCentre, who told Fabulous Online: “It’s sad to hear of an influential celebrity endorsing any dieting in pregnancy, especially as it’s unlikely to affect a baby’s size, which depends on so many factors.”

When I looked into the context of the suggestion, I figured out that Khloe was actually watching her diet reasonably over concern about having to get a C-section which is common with babies that are too large to fit in the birth canal. Khloe said on an episode of her hit E! show Keeping Up with the Kardashians that she wanted to have a vaginal birth like her sisters.

“If I want a donut or cookies I’ll eat them, I’m not depriving myself,” she told her mom, Kris Jenner, who said she wanted to see Khloe eat more.  “Everything I’m doing is instructed by my doctor,” adding, “I would love to avoid a C-section if possible, but if my baby turns out to be really big, I’m gonna have to get a C-section.”

As a woman who suffered from gestational diabetes with her first child, I am going to jump on Khloe’s side on this one. It is a FACT that excessive eating, especially of carbohydrates and sweets can in fact cause your baby to be too big, but more importantly, it can cause the mom to develop GD, the temporary condition where mom and baby have diabetes during the pregnancy.

It goes away once mom gives birth. The body senses the baby as a foreign invader and stops making insulin as it should and that’s why it is not a permanent conditition, though after a woman gets it, her and her child are more prone to develop Type 2 Diabetes later in life or some other autoimmune condition. It’s serious stuff!

I’ve blogged this before, but I used to drink 7-11 Slurpees daily because I discovered they helped me stave off the 5 months of morning sickness I experienced all day while pregnant. All of that sugar not only caused me to get too big too soon (and the baby too), but it also contributed to my positive gestational diabetes diagnosis later on in my pregnancy.

I had to measure my blood sugar daily with a stick test and see a dietitian who instructed me to reduce my carbohydrate intake in order to keep myself healthy and to stop the baby from going too much larger.

As a preventative measure, for my following two pregnancies, I stuck to a diet that limited carbs because I did not want to get GD again! It was not fun poking my fingers all the time and also, it is a health risk to the baby.

The doctors and experts who criticize celebs without actually being their physician or caregiver are overstepping their bounds and in this case, giving out potentially bad advice.

So Khloe is right on this one, but I guess spinning it like she was going out of her way to have a tiny baby is better for selling papers! ha!

 

 

Khloe Kardashian’s Bestie Malika Haqq Gave her A ‘PUSH Present’



Traditionally, a “push gift” or “push present” is something a spouse, boyfriend, fiance or partner gives to the woman who gives birth to the couple’s child after delivery, but in the celebrity reality TV world, things are never traditional.

Khloe Kardashian‘s bestie Malika Haqq gave her a diamond personalized ring bearing the name of the youngest Kardashian’s daughter  with Kardsahian’s estranged beau NBA star Tristan Thompson.

“Diamonds are always a part of life’s most meaningful moments, which is why I wanted to give this sweet ring to Khloe to celebrate becoming a mom to baby True,” the model and actress captioned an Instagram photo of Kardashian wearing a diamond studded ring that spells out True.

She ended the quote: “Diamonds are also mother nature’s greatest gift, so it had to be something natural. I wanted something that will stand the test of time and is rare, precious and unique. It just seemed like an authentic way to remember this beautiful time in Khloe’s life and in our friendship,” before tagging a diamond producer trade association’s insta, Real is Rare Real is a Diamond.

The love is symbiotic. Haqq’s  post came a few days after Kardashian came to Celebrity Big Brother and Dash Dolls alum’s  defense after a troll left a mean comment on one of Haqq’s photos.

In the comment section to a cute pic of Haqq in an oversized shirt and thigh high boots, the fan commented: “GIRL BYE!!!!! If it wasn’t for Khloé you would be a nobody… wait who are you again [sic]” to that Khloe replied to the comment:

“We are all entitled to our own opinions,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star clapped back. “And yes, love, you may have yours. But no need to be cruel when life is negative enough. But if it wasn’t for Malika then who knows where I would be emotionally.”

She went on to write, “She’s been my BFF since we were children. Loyalty and love means more to me than anything else ever could. Fame is fleeting. Malika is not.”

Nice!

Kylie Jenner Hired a Nanny and Is Back to Sexy Selfies

Valentine’s Day 2018 is extra special for Kylie Jenner; She is celebrating the holiday of love with her littlest love

Two weeks ago, the 20-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians and social media star gave birth to a daughter, Stormi Webster, her and Travis Scott‘s first child. She announced the news on Instagram, marking her first confirmation that she had been pregnant, following multiple reports over the past few months. Kylie had also kept out of the spotlight during the later stages of her pregnancy. She has since resumed posting more regularly on social media and on Wednesday, Valentine’s Day, shared a mirror selfie of herself posing on the floor in a black sweatshirt and matching shorts and stiletto boots.

A post shared by Kylie ✨ (@kyliejenner) on

Kylie is “happy she can slowly emerge into the public again,” a source told E! News exclusively, saying, “Kylie is in a really good place right now, and is loving being a mom.”

“Her relationship with Travis has made huge strides since having baby Stormi, and they are back in a good place,” the source said. “Travis has been staying overnight at Kylie’s several times a week when he is not working or out of town and has also been giving Kylie her time to bond with the baby alone. Kylie is like a new person now; every move and every decision she makes, she takes Stormi into consideration. She is obsessed with her baby and the focus is all on Stormi.”

The source also said that she has had a lot of help with the baby from mom Kris Jenner and BFF Jordyn Woods and that “recently, Kylie hired a nurse/nanny to help her, which she didn’t think she was going to do at first.”

“All of her sisters are constantly checking in with her and coming over to the house to visit Stormi,” the source added. “Kylie asks for advice all the time. She did prepare for the baby with several specialists and took private classes so she was well-prepared beforehand.”

Before Kylie revealed Stormi’s name, many people speculated that her name was inspired by butterflies.

“When Travis and Kylie started dating, Kylie became obsessed with Travis’ song “Butterfly Effect”, and butterflies became ‘their thing’ to describe their relationship that was blossoming into something beautiful,” the source said. “Storm is somewhat related to the butterfly effect and that’s why they decided on the name.”

As for Kylie and Travis’ relationship, they are in no rush to walk down the aisle.

“Kylie is not engaged, however that ring she has been wearing is from Travis,” the source said. “He gave it to her when she was first pregnant and it has several emerald-cut diamonds. They are in no rush to get married or even engaged, and Stormi is their only priority right now.”

The source also talked about Kylie’s post-pregnancy health regimen.

“Her sisters have tried to get her to workout with them but she has never been a fan of it,” the source said. “Since having Stormi, she is still not super focused on the baby weight, and knows that majority of the weight will come off naturally. She has been eating healthier but she isn’t very strict like her sisters.”

Meanwhile, Stormi has been showered with gifts. Kylie had showcased many of Stormi’s outfits and shoes in her nursery in a pregnancy and baby reveal video.

“Kylie thinks it’s so fun to dress her every morning, and loves organizing Stormi’s baby closet,” the source said. “She has received SO many gifts from friends and family members, and Stormi basically takes up a huge chunk of her house now.”
