Khloe Kardashian On Co-Parenting with Tristan Thompson: ‘We’re Doing a Great Job’

By ALYSSA RAY

Khloe Kardashian knows you can’t believe she’s happily co-parenting with ex Tristan Thompson, because it “surprises the hell out of [her] too.”

Today, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star virtually stopped by Daily Pop and gave insight to E!’s Justin Sylvester about her cordial relationship with daughter True Thompson‘s dad.

“We’re doing a great job and I’m really grateful that we’re able to,” the Good American mogul noted.

As E! readers may recall, Khloe and Tristan welcomed their daughter into the world in April 2018. While the reality TV star and the NBA athlete are no longer a couple, they make an active effort to co-parent their now 2-year-old.

Most recently, the former flames celebrated the Fourth of July together at Tristan’s home, alongside Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian. And although that may seem odd to some, Khloe clarified it’s normal within the Kardashian-Jenner family.

She continued, “I come from a family that, you know, my mom and my dad they would have dinner once a week. And my stepdad and my dad would play golf once a week together. So, I come from a family that…just because people aren’t together doesn’t mean you have to be rude or they’re out of your life.”

Case in point: Two of Khloe‘s sisters, Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, have maintained friendly relationships with the fathers of their respective children.

“You share children with them and you want to kind of have this blended family,” Khloe added. “So, I’m just used to that. I’m sure it’s so weird to so many people.”

Later in the interview, Khloe noted that her ex has been “so amazing during this quarantine” as he’s “been so helpful.”

She expressed, “You know, when you can’t rely on so many other people’s help, it’s so great that you have like, essentially he’s your partner, he’s True’s dad. And I need his help more now.”

Furthermore, the E! personality noted that she and her ex have “been getting along,” which she described as “weirdly really good.”

And, with her ongoing battle with migraines, we’re sure the help has been appreciated.

During her exclusive chat with Justin, Khloe discussed her partnership with Nurtec ODT and their “Take Back Today” campaign. Khloe, who has suffered from migraines since “about the 6th grade,” sounded off on her experience with the pill.

“So many people suffer from migraines, predominantly women, and they really are something that can be debilitating,” she shared. “It’s a dissolvable pill, an oral dissolvable pill. Something I have been able to take that’s been one of the very few things that helped me with migraines, especially during quarantine.”

She did note that a listed side effect is nausea.

Welcome to the world, baby girl Culiner!

E! News can exclusively reveal that Daily Pop co-host Carissa Culiner and husband Shanon Culiner welcomed their second child, a daughter, on Tuesday, April 28 at 11:01 a.m. in Los Angeles.

Carissa and Shanon named their bundle of joy Zoey Grace Culiner. Too cute!

Carissa tells E! exclusively, “Delivery went extremely smoothly. I even got to do the Kourtney Kardashian thing and partly pull her out of me. It was the most amazing experience! We’re back home now, and mom and Zoey are doing great. Chase is loving being a big brother so far. He thinks Zoey is just the cutest thing!”

Carissa shared some exclusive first photos (which were edited with the help of Andrea Larison with Children At Play Photography) of baby Zoey Grace and we must say she’s beyond adorable!

During the Oct. 22 episode of Daily Pop, Carissa confirmed that she was pregnant with baby no. 2. Unsurprisingly, at the time, Carissa was “very excited” by her pregnancy news as they “wanted another baby.” It was during this episode that the E! personality confirmed she was due in April 2020.

Later in 2019, Carissa was joined by her family on the daytime chat show, where they learned they were expecting a little girl.

“I am so happy!” Carissa gushed in excitement. “I wanted a girl, I just thought it was going to be a boy.”

The TV personality and her husband are also parents to their son Chase, whom they welcomed back in November 2017.

“Chase arrived last night at 9:48p – 9lbs 13oz, 23 inches and a full head of hair!” Carissa previously shared in an exclusive statement to E! News. “Both of us are doing great!”

Looks like Chase is officially a big brother now.

Congratulations to the happy parents! Scroll down to see all the precious first pics of little Zoey Grace Culiner!

Here are the Strollers Celeb and Posh Moms Use

celebrity stroller

It has been 10 years since I last posted the annual Bellyitch Most Expensive Strollers post. It was a yearly blog post staple and used to get tons of traffic because, honestly, I think people, generally, are obsessed with knowing what baby items are used and coveted by the super wealthy and celebrities.

Since the last post, a few stroller companies have gone out of business. RIP to Orbit, Maclaren and newer brands 4Moms and iCandy, which were once considered “it” strollers in their day but no longer manufacture luxury strollers.

In 2013, I published the list as part of the Bellyitch 100, a book of the top crib makers, maternity wear designers, stroller makers and baby clothes brands.

You can get your Free Copy of The Bellyitch 100 here!

Anyway, so I used to publish the Most Expensive Strollers list at a time when I was raising a young family and brands would boast that they were on the list.

My social circle at the time included professional working women, stay-at-home moms, and mom bloggers, several who were affluent and looked at the stroller as a status symbol.

Here is another secret about what happens among moms at the park, at the school pick up lot, in the mall and other social places where mommies congregate. They check out what strollers they’re pushing a baby or child in and make judgments.

Yes, there is a definite hierarchy in quality of strollers and believe me when I tell you that certainly check out what stroller another mom’s child is being pushed in and make judgments.

When I was raising my children as a young lawyer, I went through 6 strollers, which is a low number considering many of my friends at the tiem had way more.

Our first stroller was a Peg Perego  which converts from a baby carriage or pram to a push stroller. At the time, it was among the best. Then, when my first born turned into a toddler, we ordered the Inglesina Swift umbrella stroller from the Italian stroller manufacturer. It had a great run!

To pair with the Inglesina, a sturdy Italian brand, we got a lower cost Combi umbrella stroller for travel, a stroller we could beat up which was so much less that so that we wouldn’t mind if it got lost by the airline or damaged during travel.

Then, when I was expecting baby #2, I got as an amazing shower gift from my co-workers at my old job: a Peg Prerego Aria double stroller!

By the time baby number 3 rolled around, the Inglesina had hit the dirt, we left the Combi on some island we visited for vacation once and we had loaned out the Peg Perego Buggy to relatives who didn’t take good care of it.

The wheels on the double gave out and we opted to give to Goodwill rather than try to fix it or get the company to repair it.

B.O.B.

We opted for a lesss expensive Graco Snug Ride for Baby #3 and a B.OB. jogging stroller (the air-filled jogger stroller with hand activated rear wheel brakes that can ride smooth on any terrain) when I was ready to get back in shape.

Now, while we didn’t get any of them to make a statement, I have had many moms and dads comment on the pricier high end ones while walking in the parks, malls etc. People are always looking for a status symbol and there is a preconception that most expensive means the best!

It’s no wonder, you can see celebrities strolling their children in many of those on this list. The celebrities know that too. That is why Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony sued Silver Cross from publishing on their website an unauthorized endorsement which featured a People magazine photo of them pushing their twins in two Silver Cross prams.

People flock to buy whatever celebrities purchase and that stroller companies know that endorsement mean lots for their bottom line.

Anyhoo, on to the list. Of course, as a disclaimer, this list is not exhaustive. As usual, this list is based on my own personal research and I urge readers to point out other vehicles that should grace this list. Certainly, I would amend the post to reflect corrections.

In the meantime, check out this year’s list of “it” strollers pushed by the most Poshest of moms and celebs out there (I’m updating this list with a few more after the initial post so come back and ping me on Twitter if you don’t see one you think should be on this list)

Celebs Dressed As Celebs For Halloween

As is the case in many Halloween seasons past, famous people loved to dress as other celebrities and this year was no different. The TODAY show and Good Morning America morning shows and Live with Kelly and Ryan had themes and dressed as multiple people. TODAY’s on air personalities did dance numbers and Good Morning America’s theme was. Kelly and Ryan did pop culture viral moments like Baby Shark and Old Town Road.

Here is a run down (updating as I bump into more)

Singer Normani channeled a 1979 Cher and a 1991 Naomi Campbell shoot  and killed both looks!

Ryan Secrest and Kelly Ripa dressed as Katy Perry and Taylor Swift’s food costumes from Swift’s “Calm Down” video.

Kourtney Kardashian dressed as Ariana Grande.

Her sister Kylie Jenner dressed as Marilyn Monroe and the Little Mermaid

TODAY show host Sheinelle Jones dressed as Janet Jackson from her “Rhythm Nation” Video

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Lisa Rinna dressed as J.Lo in her infamous dress.



Comedian Kevin Hart channeled DuaneThe Rock” Johnson’s  iconic 1990s photo.

What Gabrielle Union and Kenya Moore Daly Are Being ‘Mommy Shamed’ About Now

Celebrities get “Mommy Shamed” for every. little. thing. they. do! It comes with the territory of having millions of followers, being socially influential and having humans with all sorts of opinions following your every move!

Recently, brand new first-time moms to baby girls, Gabrielle Union and Kenya Moore Daly were warned about kissing their own newborns! Yup!

(There and Pro and Cons schools of thought on this issue)

(Also previously shamed for kissing a child on the lips in in social media: Amber Rose, Kourtney Kardashian, Dads David Beckham and Union’s husband Dwayne Wade, Olivia Wilde and Hillary Duff)

Union shared a video which got all the heat but she chose to reply to them, writing, in a subsequent post including a video of her daughter Kaavia James being examined by the doctor who gave a clean bill of health:

Cant stop, won’t stop. ???@kaaviajames ?❤????

Here’s a guide for happily enjoying my posts of our family. Trust that she is surrounded by medical and child care specialists. Know she is safe and watched closely at all times. Trust that I won’t post anything that puts my child in danger or opens me up to unsolicited online medical or parenting opinions ? @kaaviajames is loved. She will be kissed. She will be loved on by the people that love her. She will be safe. If and when I have questions (as a new mom I have tons) I will not hesitate to ask my online community for help and suggestions. But yall have never known me to hold my tongue so trust that I will ask for help. Sometimes publicly and sometimes privately. Its OK that every parent does things differently to suit their child’s needs. Every solution that works or worked for you may or may not work for me or my family or other folks. And that’s absolutely OK. If someone does things differently or does not take your advise or that advise doesnt pan out the way it did for you, that is NO indication that you are wrong or a bad parent. We all figure out what works for us, our children and our families. We dont all have to match. It’s ok to break from the norm and do what’s healthiest and safest for your child. No one is in your house or your family but YOU. We dont all need to be clones of each other to be doing OK. The goal is for us all to have happy healthy families and that journey looks different for every family. Let’s embrace that. Let’s get comfortable with that. Someone doing something different than us does not make us bad people or bad parents. Breathe and enjoy. There will be no mommy shaming on this page. I rebuke mommy shaming. For those STILLLLL clinging onto your fears about Kaav’s breathing and or whether my sweet kisses harmed my kid…feel free to swipe.

Moore just ignore them and let her fans clap back over criticism of her kissing her infant, Brooklyn Doris.

Sheesh! 

Kourtney Kardashian: the last Dash To Break the Internet

This latest season of Keeping Up with The Kardashians started with the eldest of the sisters Kourtney Kardashian in tears over being told by sister Kim that she (Kourt)is the least interesting to look at.

That was over 6 months ago when the show taped and since then, Kourtney has ”cougared” her way through at least two different romantic partners who were years her junior and had made up for being told she isn’t interesting by posting a series of super sexy photos in social media.

Before, I think I can fairly say she was the last Kardashian that a lot of regulars folksy moms could relate to. She kept it rated PG and mom-focused. 

The reality Tv star’s image rebrand worked to catch the eye of GQ Mexico editors, at least, who feature her in its double winter issue.

A post shared by Kourtney Kardashian (@kourtneykardash) on

And one particular photo shot by Michael Schwartz features the “assets” of the mom of three prominently!

In the photo, the 39-year old wears a long sleeve black turtleneck and no bottoms it appears. 

To say  the image, posted in IG,  took many of her 70 million fans and followers by surprise is an understatement!

While she got a lot of love in the comment section, I can say a  significant amount were body shaming ones and women expressing disappointment and stating the image will bring shame to her kids.

I don’t want to contribute too much to them by amplifying them so you can go to her post and read them for yourself. 

ETA: This is not the first time, Kourt has posted a nude photo of herself from a fashion spread. She did so in 2017and  while preggers in 2014 in Vanity Fair!

Still, this close up one is quite different.

What do you think!? Let’s talk about it in social! Find me @bellyitch on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram!

Celebrity Halloween 2018 Costumes (PHOTOS *UPDATED*)



Every year, celebrities go above and beyond to give superb portrayals for Halloween. This year did not disappoint. Here is a quick rundown of my faves including some from our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums like Ciara, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Jaime King and more.

Kylie Jenner recreated the Barbie in a box. It was one of several costumes she wore this season. She went as a Butterfly in a mommy and me photo with her daughter and as a Victoria Secret Angel group costume with her sisters. (see below)

The winner might be Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner killed as Gomez and Morticia Addams complete with Thing on his shoulder! Best hands down in my opinion this year!

oh I think Heidi Klum as Princess Fiona and Tom Kaulitz as Shrek as  is up there too!

Alicia Keys went over the top but in a good way as a Ninja. I mean, she had her entire costume as part of a movie poster and all with the credits including her children and husband.

Beyonce paid homage and tribute to Lil Kim last  year and this year, she went with another icon: Toni Braxton. She dressed as the pop crooner’s cover album for “Another Sad Love Song.

Actress, former model Jaime King dolled it up as Joan of Arc at Just Jared’s Halloween party presented by Carls Jr.

Ciara‘s costume portrayal of Black Panther heroine Nakia from Black Panther is 10X Levels Up! She did Wakanda right!

Crazy Rich Asians actor Harry Shum Jr. was boss as Eric Draven from the 1994 film The Crow,!

I wanted to go as Ariana Grande this year but I don’t think anyone did her better than Kourtney Kardashian did!

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend killed as Queen Elizabeth the II and Prince Phillip.

Winnie Harlowe as RuPaul

Padma Lakshmi at Heidi Klum’s 19th Annual Halloween Party as The Black Swan

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson as Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwazzeneger in “Twins”

Kelly Clarkson as a penguin and Jennifer Hudson as Catwoman

The Kardashian/Jenner girls were blessed to have Victoria’s Secret loan them actual angel wings so they can dress as true Angels for Halloween.

My fave is Kourt’s because she is tiny and the oldest

Bethenny Frankel could have joined the sisters because she too dressed as a Vicky Sec angel this year.

 

The Ladies of The Real TV talk show dressed up as iconic TV talk show hosts. Tamera Mowry-Housley was Tyra Banks. Jeannie Mae went as Ellen Degeneres. Loni Love dressed as Oprah Winfrey and Adrienne Houghton as Sally Jessy Raphael.

The TODAY show traditionally go all out for Halloween. This  year, I was thoroughly impressed by Al Roker and Dylan Dreyer dressed as Marty McFly and Doc Brown From Back to the Future.

Kelly Ripa is usually a show stopper wearing a variety of looks and costumes each Halloween with her hosts throughout the years, Regis, Michael Strahan and now with Ryan Secrest. They did a bunch of 80s TV show characters this year. She did it up as as Vicki the Robot From Small Wonder.

The two of them portrayed Jeannie and Major Nelson From I Dream of Jeannie.

And one of my fave shows: Laverne and Shirley‘s Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney.

Seacrest came out in a small model car like the one Ricky Stratton From Silver Spoons owned and drove in the opening sequence to that show.

Kelly Ripa, Ryan Seacrest, and Art More as a modern twist on the Friends Cast.

I loved Disney Channel stars Jenna Ortega and Asher Angel as Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson. I asked my husband to go as this duo to a Halloween party we were going to and he said no. Boo!

Monica is another celebrity that puts a lot of work into her Halloween costume every single year. She dressed as Johnny Depp‘s portrayal of the Mad Hatter.

Sarah Michelle Gellar looked hot as as Harley Quinn.

Adrienne Bosh could barely be made out in her Halloween Insta share as a Ghoulish Ghost.

One of my faves because of how close to the original it was is Madison Pettis from Nickelodeon‘s Cory in the House as Coachella Beyonce

Also loved Gwen Stefani as Sally From Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Speaking of which! Gabriel Union did a great job dressing as Stefani in No Doubt’s “Just a Girl” video before heading out to her birthday party.

No. Doubt. @gwenstefani

Trend: High Rise Swimsuits If You Dare, Many Won’t



If you’re a watcher of fashion trends, you may have noticed that high cut bikinis and bathing suits are all over. Several of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums like Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and others have sported this style of swimwear that is quite risque given how high up on the hip the suit goes. The Jenner sisters sell them as part of their fashion line.



If you’re brave enough to don one this summer, there are plenty of options and styles. Various brands, stores and design houses have made these suits available in a variety of colors, textures and materials.

Moms tend to prefer the high waisted ones or belted swim versions like the Out From Under Peek-A-Boo Ring One-Piece Swimsuit that Urban Outfitters sell for $69.00 or its Out From Under Alli Belted High Cut One-Piece Swimsuit $59.99.

Our team has curated their top picks below:





10 Kardashian Moms Weight Loss Tricks & Hacks

Now that four out of the five original Kardashian-Jenner women are moms and all super svelte and trim post baby delivery, we thought we would take a look at all the various weight loss gimmicks, tricks and hacks the ladies have shared on their social to their fans and followers.

Then I discovered that Cosmo already went thru and found about 13 of them

1. Flat Tummy Lollipops

On Instagram, Kim Kardashian-West  posted the #ad above promoting Flat Tummy Co’s appetite-suppressing lollipops, calling them “literally unreal.” (She later deleted it.) The manufacturer’s website claims these candies contain an active ingredient called Satiereal, “a clinically proven safe active ingredient extracted from natural plants.” Eating one to two pops per day in response to hunger is supposed to promote satiety to help control food intake, cravings, and weight, and help hold you over until your next meal, all according to the website.

2. Exercise in a Sauna suit

Khloé Kardashian says wearing this secret weapon(essentially a trash bag that contains body heat during workouts) makes her sweat two to three times as much. “I like wearing the sauna suit during cardio, but you burn more calories and break a sweat faster even if you’re lifting weights,” she wrote on her app. She also says she drinks two or three times as much to prevent dehydration.

3. Cut out dairy

Khloé has said she lost 11 pounds in a month and a half by eliminating dairy from her diet and replacing foods like cheese, milk, pizza, and ice cream with dairy-free items.

4. Give up Gluten

Khloé’s nutritionist cut gluten out of her diet — and Kourtney recently put herself and her kids on a gluten-free diet too, bringing dairy-free, gluten-free cookies to her brother Rob’s birthday party for her kids to eat instead of birthday cake.

5. Wear a Waist Trainer

Khloé has endorsed Fit Tea Wraps (in sponsored posts, FWIW). Essentially, they’re a sheet mask soaked in a special gel made with ingredients like green tea, cocoa extra, and a bunch of other stuff that’s difficult to pronounce. You apply it to an area like your stomach, wrap it in cellophane to soak in, and rub the excess gel into the skin to minimize the appearance of cellulite for a firmer, toned look.

Fashion Reigned Supreme at the 2018 CFDA Awards

The Council of Fashion Designers of America—in partnership with Swarovski for the 17th year—(CFDA) held its annual awards last night at the Brooklyn Museum which was hosted for the first time in 10-years by a woman, Insecure star, producer and writer Issa Rae. 

During the red carpet of the event, we noticed several of the celeb moms (and one mom-to-be) we have featured on the blog looking tres fashionable.
