Kerry Washington Is Not Interested in Hiding Her baby Bump Taping Scandal Again

scandal abc

Kerry Washington didn’t appreciate all the ridiculous things she had to do to hide her pregnant belly while taping Scandal when she was pregnant with her daughter Isabelle Asomugha in 2013. This time, pregnant with her second child with her ex-NFLer husband Nnamdi Asomugha, she has told producers she won’t be returning until after she has delivered her baby.

I don’t blame her. The tricks and shenanigans executed by the production crew was the subject of a few humorous pieces by TVGuide.com, PEOPLE, E!Online, US Weekly and several other sites that jumped on the bandwagon.

Last time, her pregnancy shortened the season by 4 episodes. This times, it looks like it will shorten it by 12.

Congrats to Kerry Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha on expecting their second child, according to E! and Us Weekly.

This weekend, when I posted the red carpet from the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, I added a couple of lines referencing the fact that her face looked full and she looked pregnant especially wearing that A-Line dress.

I guess I wasn’t the only one brimming with suspicions.  This will be her second child with her ex-NFL player husband. They welcomed a daughter, Isabelle,

Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha on April 21, 2014.

Now that the secret is out, she can cusp her pregnant belly on the red carpet of tonight’s Met Gala. She is wearing Marc Jacobs.

2015 Prime Time Emmy Awards Red Carpet and Winners

 

emmy awards 2015

Watching the red carpet to the 67th Annual Primtime EmmyAwards at Microsoft Theater tonight, I must say I was really loving all the creative and different silhouettes, daring cutouts and experiments with texture on the styles of clothing.

Early photos I saw revealed a lot of prom and pageant-like dresses, and very full skirts and structured boring looks we’ve seen before on the Miss Universe stage, but then when I began to dig deep into the photo galleries and I was wowed by Amy Poehler‘s midriff revealing black Michael Kors Collection dress with spaghetti halter straps. Grrrrr!

And January Jones‘ emerald Ulyana Sergeenko jumpsuit with a starfish brooch at the hip was to die for!

Kerry Washington did not disappoint this time in a silver metallic Marc Jacobs with futuristic cap shoulders, Casadei pumps and Harry Winston jewels. Love Love!

Mad Men‘s Jessica Pare brought out the color in her pink Monse halter dress, accented with Fred Leighton jewels and Christian Louboutin heels.

Many were nominated and several took home awards like Julia Louis-Dreyfus who won again for the 4th straight year in a row as the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Veep.

And Congratulations to  Viola Davis for her historic win as the first African American woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for her role in How to Get Away With Murder tonight. Bravo! She rocked this stage in a righteous twist-out fro complemented nicely in a white with black print Carmen Marc Valvo gown, Stuart Weitzman shoes, and Neil Lane jewels.

viola davis wins

Congrats also to Regina King who played a protective Muslim mother in the mini-series drama American Crime and for her role on that version of the series nabbed the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series of Movie!

She took her son Ian to the ceremony and acknowledged him in her speech for a win she really didn’t expect, as she explained to ET!

 

 

These were big wins given the fact that historically in the US, there are not that many roles written and cast for black women to play so they can outshine their contemporaries at the time and earn wins.

Very Cool.

King looked nice though the color and frame of the dress was underwhelming for her powerful and strong body. The back was banging tho. Owww!

Maggie Gyllenhaal did the ball gown thing in Oscar de la Renta with Fred Leighton jewels. I don’t have enough words for Heidi Klum‘s  dress and I found the fit of Claire DanesPrada dress a bit off for her tonight.

Veep‘s Anna Chlumsky brought some glam in Bibhu Mohapatra and Chopard jewels and Sofia Vergara did the usual old Hollywood glam vixen figure-hugging fishtail look. Seen it before. It’s her signature and works for her I guess but she really should change things up.

Bellyitch Bumpwatch Alums Married to Professional Athletes

talls and smalls
Kristin Cavallari‘s second pregnancy with her husband Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler reminded us that many of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums are married and/or partners with professional athletes.

Like Cavallari, who is a shoe designer and TV host, Gisele Bundchen is also married to an NFL quarterback, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

It’s always interesting to note the height difference with some pairs, like: Adrienne Bosh and her husband Miami Heat NBA player Chris Bosh, Nashville actress Hayden Panattiere  and her fiance Heavyweight boxing champ Wladimir Klitschko, and Savannah Brinson and Cleveland Cavaliers NBA player LeBron “King” James (in article header).

kerry and kim
Scandal‘s Kerry Washington keeps her relationship and marriage to hunky former NFL cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha secret but when spotted out, they both look adorbs together, as do Kim Zolciack-Biermann  and her husband Troy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons. Though, the very gorgeous Biermanns are very public as can be seen up and down Kim’s Instagram page.

Soccer wives3
And the “other” footballers (soccer) from across the ocean include Caroline Berg Eriksen and her husband Norwegian Premier League football player Lars-Kristian Eriksen, and the very fashionable and chic A-List couple Victoria Beckham and her retired football star spouse David Beckham. 

hockey wives

Representing the Hockey League are Hilary Duff  and her Canadian professional hockey player estranged hubby Mike Comerie  (whom she is currently divorcing from) and Carrie Underwood with her NHL Nashville Predators hubby  Mike Fisher.

shannon and evelyn
 Finally, Monica Brown  and her ex NBA star hubby Shannon Brown have one of the most endearing relationships and a wonderful blended family. Same with Evelyn Lozada and her hubby LA Dodgers Major League  baseball star hubby Carl Crawford.

Beautiful people all around!

Weekend Red Carpet Roundup

Jennifer Lopes and Jennifer Nettles at the Tony Awards. SpikeTV Guy Awards nominee Taraji P. Henson

It’s been a busy couple of weekends for red carpet star-studded events starting with the June 2nd Glamour Women of the Year Awards at Berkeley Square Gardens in London, England.

We spotted several Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums like Kerry Washington killing it in a black David Komo bandeau top with gold embellished slim skirt with a deep split also by David Komo. Kate Hudson too was bringing this season’s plunging neckline trend to the forefront in her eye-catching Burnt Orange J.Mendel dress, accented with a gold Jimmy Choo clutch and Brian Atwood pumps. Rochelle Humes looked elegant as well.

Yesterday, at Spike TV‘s Guy Choice 2015 at Sony Picture Studios in Culver, City, we spotted Taraji P. Henson showcasing the white on white trend. With no surprise “Cookie” took home the Jean-Claude Ghad Dam award while another Bellyitch Bumpwatch babe Salma Hayek walked away with the much deserved Decade of Hotness award.

Tonight, at the Tony Awards, we saw a Jennifer Lopez was serving up the old Hollywood glam with the her wavy do in a darker shade than she’s been wearing lately. Her Valentino Couture  gown was elegant and perfectly accentuated with Harry Winston jewels, a Jimmy Choo purse and Christian Louboutin heels. Anna Chlumsky was also in the house in an eggplant colored form fitting Sophie Theallet dress.

I also adored what Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles wore too. She was gorg.

My fave look for the weekend was not worn by a mom but Vanessa Hudgens. I loved the big bold floral patterns in this with the deep plunging neckline Naeem Khan gown. She looked Amaze Balls!

Kerry Washington is on every cover on your newsstand

Well, not really, but still.

Our Bellyitch alum Kerry Washington has been having a great past few weeks. I see her everywhere on covers of lots of top magazines April and May issues.

Usually, you can tell which designers she is outfitted in during magazine spreads, but scoping her Twitter stream during the airing of her top ABC show Scandal last night,  I discovered that she also tweets out the designers who make the amazingly sharp and gorgeous clothes she wears on the show. It is usually in response to one of her Gladiators swooning and tweeting at her asking who made the clothing item.

Awesome! As a person who dabbles in content marketing and promotion, I think that is an excellent way to promote those labels as well. I hope she’s getting paid for it because I spotted a few pieces I’m coveting now myself. Tee hee!

Werk, Kerry!

Met Gala After Parties- Celeb Moms out Late

After the party is the after party.

Rather than head home following the glamorous celeb-studded Met Gala, some of the celeb moms we’ve followed in the past headed out to the various after parties.

Actress Kerry Washington was spotted at the official “China: Through The Looking Glass” Costume Institute Benefit Gala” After Party on May 4, 2015 at The Standard Hotel in New York City

Katie Holmes and Zac Posen posed up at the Michael Kors and iTunes After Party at The Mark Hotel on May 4, 2015 in New York City.

Solange Knowles was there too and she didn’t go home to change like the others. Last year around this time, everyone was talking about the infamous elevator ride fight video.
