‘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!

On RHOA’s Nene Leake’s Verbal Attacks of Pregnant Co-Stars

Writer Victoria Uwumarogie over at MadameNoire is calling out Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes for making derogatory comments about two co-star nemesis when they were pregnant.

She pointed out that during the finale episode of the show this past Sunday on BravoTV, former castmate Kenya Moore attended an event celebrating the launch of Housewife Cynthia Bailey‘s Seagram’s cooler while close to 9 months pregnant, at the time.

Leakes threw patronizing jabs to Moore who arrived in a bump hugging bodycon dress.

“Oh, my God. Doesn’t she look amazing?! She looks amazing, honey. That body is beat, honey,” commenting on Moore’s size during the end of her pregnancy.

“She’s going to have a buffalo, isn’t she?” Leakes added.

Moore replied on live-tweeted the finale and called out the comments:

I’m having a buffalo… I’m going into labor. I’m pregnant what’s her excuse… So nasty so rude. #RHOA

— KENYA MOORE (@KenyaMoore) April 1, 2019

Also, an episode or two prior this season, after an altercation in her home, Leakes allegedly called Williams a “lying a– big fat hungry b—h” and “big piggy with the busted shape,” over text, telling her she needed to try dieting to lose weight.

Finally, during part one of the show’s reunion episodes, she referred to still heavily pregnant Williams, as “so big over there,” and called her “blimps.”

READ Uwumarogie ‘s take down here!

Leakes previously apologized for wishing rape on a heckler during her stand up tour in 2017 and that same year viciously verbal attacking former co-star Kim Zolciack Biermann‘s daughter Brielle Biermann after the then 17-year old took snapchat video of water bugs while visiting Leakes’ home during an event.

#RHOA’s Kenya Moore Welcomes Daughter, Brooklyn Doris Daly

Congratulations to Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star Kenya Moore and her husband restaurateur Marc Daly who welcomed their first child, a daughter, together tonight, Sunday, November 4, PEOPLE magazine reported.

The couple, married since June 2017, named their new arrival Brooklyn Doris Daly.

“Brooklyn because that’s where we met and fell in love, and Doris after my grandmother who passed away last year and who raised me,” Moore told People of the name’s significance.

According to the mag, “Brooklyn is very alert and active” and was born weighing at 5 lbs. and 12 oz.

Hours before welcoming her baby, Moore took to Instagram to give fans an update from the hospital.

“If you want to make God laugh have a plan… won’t be long now. Pray for us 🙏🏾 #babydaly #weloveyou #prayers,” Moore captioned her photo where she is seen smiling while lying in a hospital bed.

The former Miss USA  conceived through in vitro fertilization and gave birth via emergency cesarean section after she shared last week on Oct. 27 that she had tested positive for preeclampsia — a pregnancy complication.

Moore said the condition caused her to gain “17 lbs. in ONE week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine.”

She shared a photo of her swollen feet.

Last weekend, Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Kenya Moore and her husband Marc Daly celebrated the impending birth of their first child together at a  Wrinkle In Time -theme baby shower in Atlanta where guests were asked to dressed in elaborate costumes to reflect the theme similar to the Met Gala.

The seated plated event was held at the Historic Academy of Medicine building at George Tech University, a venue used often for lavish banquets, weddings and other formal events.

It was held in an intimate sized ornately decorated room, draped in lighted organza, green carpet, golden thrones and everything needed to resemble an enchanted forest.

Guests of the October 20th event included family, friends and former castmates Porsha Williams, Kandi Burrus, Cynthia Bailey, and Claudia Jordan along with “Real Housewives of Potomac” star Gizelle Bryant, Married to Medicine stars Toya Bush-Harris and Dr. Heavenly Kimes among others.

When the time was right, Moore Daly entered the red-carpet event after emerging from a luxury black SUV and joined her already gathered guests to an awaiting head table that included her aunt, hubby and several relatives.

The Dalys took a spin off of a very popular theme among celebs: Royal. It is one previously in the past including, Lil Kim, Jojo Simmons, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend,  Creed frontman Scott Stapp and his wife Jaclyn, and even Moore Daly’s  former co-star Eva Marcille earlier this month in March.

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.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams is Pregnant

Congratulations to Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Dennis McKinley.

The news came with trepidation because the stage actress suffered a previous miscarriage six years ago.

“When I found out I was pregnant, I was excited [but] I had mixed feelings. The other feeling that I had beside excitement was fear,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who suffered a miscarriage six years ago, told PEOPLE in an interview for the newest issue, out Friday.

“I’ve had a miscarriage before in my past, which I’ve also been open about because I suffer with fibroids and had to have a myomectomy…So just the fear of, ‘Is the baby going to be okay? Will I make it full term?’ All those questions that you ask if you’ve had a miscarriage before.”

She raves of him, “The thought of me getting that blessing after praying for it for so long and getting that blessing with someone who is just as excited as me — it’s Dennis’ first child, just like me — and it’s something we’ve both always wanted … It’s like a dream come true.”

“I believe he’s probably shed more tears during the process than me,” Williams tells PEOPLE of McKinley, whom she has known for years but only began dating this past year. “It’s just the sweetest moment of my life right now.”

The TV host joins fellows co stars Kenya Moore and Shamea Moore 

Congrats!
