Why ‘Gawker’ has Been Trolling Kristin Cavallari for 500 days 

Third-time mom-to-be Kristin Cavallari is actively promoting the imminent release of her first book “Balancing in Heels” while waiting to soon deliver her first daughter with husband, Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler.

On the caption to a recent Instagram post, the shoe designer, most famously known for her role on the cast of the heavily scripted MTV reality TV show The Hills, wrote:

“It’s hard to believe I will be a mom of 3 in just a few short weeks…I owe so much to my babies…they have changed me in so many ways for the better.” 

Cavallari, who has had bit acting parts in a few TV series (CSI:NY, The Middle and The League)and has been a TV host (The Fabulist),  first announced the book‘s release to E News back in January.

She revealed then that the book will also cover fashion, beauty, health, fitness and cooking.

Also since then, Gawker‘s “Defamer” blog has been trolling the pretty blond with its “500 Days of Kristin Cavallari” series.

Periodically, Gawker writer Allie Jones posts a little trollish tidbit about Cavallari counting down the days until the book is released.

We suspect it has to do with Cavallari’s controversial stance on vaccinations which she thinks causes autism.

It’s free publicity for her but something tells us that after the book is published, the trolling will continue into the context of the book.

Oh boy!

?

The snarky coverage hasn’t stopped the football wife from pushing her various projects.

Cavallari has also been promoting the Fall Fashion Campaign for her shoe imprint with Chinese Laundry.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight this month promoting the new season’s fashion, the Laguna Beach alum admitted that having three children scares her but that she is excited about having a baby girl.

She said she is already getting the nursery ready and “getting all the pink and purple clothes.”

Fun! Keep on, keeping on, Kristin!

DWTS Alum, Model Elisabetta Canalis is having a Fabulously Fit Pregnancy (EXCLUSIVE INTVW)

Elisabetta Canalis567

When you last saw the leggy Italian beauty Elisabetta Canalis she was probably doing a pirouette with her dance partner on Season 13 of Dancing with the Stars. Too bad she didn’t make it too far in the competition, which included currently preggers Kristin Cavallari. Some have joked women were jealous that she had once dated George Clooney for a couple of years.

In any event, the actress and working model has moved up and on and these days can be seen looking fabulously preggers. She and her orthopedic surgeon husband Brian Perri are expecting their first child together.

Bellyitch nabbed an exclusive chat with the brand new Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF Italy to check in on her before she gives birth in a few weeks.

So far, she and hubby have not yet picked a baby a name and will do the unconventional thing and wait until they see her to decide.

“We have changed the name so many times” Canalis states. “My husband and I have different taste so we will decide  after looking  at her little face!”

Sounds like a plan and fortunately, from scanning her Instagram pics where she shares pregnancy with fans and followers, she looks like she is managing weight gain despite the fact she is craving “carbs and sugar.”

No one ever is lucky enough to crave something healthy like carrots and wheat grass, but Canalis is managing the cravings pretty well.

“I accept my cravings but I make compromises. If I eat cookies, tarts, cakes or pizza I cannot eat other carbs. For me, personally, I am happy this way. If you crave more pasta than other stuff, don’t eat sugar. Drink water!” she advises.

Staying healthy and fit on the Reformer in a Pilates Studio – Instagram

It may not matter anyway because Canalis stayed quite active during her first pregnancy and that’s usually a guaranteed way to drop baby weight. In IG pics she’s seen rowing and being pretty consistent and religious with Reformer Pilates, a machine we here love at Bellyitch.

She also tells us she goes to the gym twice a week, hikes, drinks plenty of fruit and veggie juicesto stay healthy, adding “I found that reducing the salt gives great benefits too!”

On handling unsolicited advice, Canalis says she takes it all in but will adhere to only certain ones, depending on the source.

” I get so much advice and I am happy to have friends who can tell me what is the best thing to do in any case,” she says. “For sure I will take the advice from friends whose children are raised to the way I want to raise mine. I had the chance to see  accomplishments and mistakes that many of my friends made  with their kids and I will use their examples.”

Friends’ stories can also pile onto existing fears and to avoid stressing over the horror stories Canalis recommends you stay away from YouTube.

She did watch “The Happiest Baby on the Block” and recommends at least one baby book though you’d have to understand Italian (or get a translated copy).

“There is a book I am reading that has been a blessing for some friends of mine, it is about understanding the difficulties that newborns generally have falling asleep and what the parents shouldn’t do! The names of the writers are Eduard Estivill and Sylvia de Bejar (Italian title Fate la nanna).”

It’s very common for children of celebrities to follow in their footsteps.  Canalis says won’t discourage her soon-to-be born daughter (who we know will be gorgeous) from going into the entertainment field.

“She will have to study first then she can try to do whatever she likes,” Canalis says then jokes, “she will have 2 kinds of examples at home, mine, working in the entertainment business, and her dad’s example of doing a serious job “.

She must not be serious because, although fabulous, the life of an actress and model can be taxing.

She has no time to chill and has to get back into shape soon after giving birth.

“I will start to work out and eat properly as soon as I’m be able to. I have to shoot a fashion campaign 2 months after I  deliver so…I won’t have that much time!”

Canalis has a very healthy attitude about sharing her pregnancy with her fans and followers on social media, she tell us:

Sometimes I just don’t want to bother people or my fans by saying how I don’t feel great during these 9 months for this and that…. Talking about back pain, carpal tunnel or about all the bad sides of pregnancy makes this moment only harder and…. there is always someone who feels worse than you.  I don’t even like the idea of taking sexy provocative pictures right now…But this is only about me. Demi More was stunning when she posed naked for a magazine cover during her pregnancy…. I would only look goofy trying to be like that!

Bravo! Bellissimo!

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!

Reality TV Moms who went from obscurity to Business Moguls

VH1.com  assembled a list of reality TV stars who were relatively unknown before and were able to parlay their appearances on docu series and become business moguls.  Moms dominated the list which included many current and past Bellyitch Bumpwatch moms!

Bethenny Frankel‘s Skinny Girl major distribution and buyout deal, Snooki‘s New York Times Best seller appearances, Kristin Cavallari‘s shoe line and subsequent E! TV hosting show and of course Kourtney and Kim Kardashian with all their Kardashian gold!

It left of the dozens or so who have launched websites, clothing, shoes and make up lines, books and videos. We’re thinking, Phaedra Parks with her multiple ventures like exercise DVDs and all the other housewives from various series,  VH1 own’s Love and Hip Hop stars Rasheeda and Yandy Smith, and several others who have clothing companies.

But still, that says a lot about the hustle of moms who were relatively unknown before and managed to use their stardom on a TV show and parlay that into lucrative business ventures for their families.

Yay moms! Happy Mother’s Day!

Fashion shows’ pregnant celebrity hosts

A few years ago, we blogged about how female film stars were losing out on film projects once producers discovered they were pregnant. That’s why it was refreshing to catch a broadcast of Project Runway’s All-Star featuring a very pregnant Alyssa Milano as a host on the latest season of that show. She hosted it last year as well.
The franchise is quite pregnant lady friendly as creator and original host Heidi Klum was also very pregnant during one past season of the general Project Runway fashion designer contest show.
We also noticed that another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Vanessa Simmons started her gig on Project Runway Threads (the version for child-designers) right after giving birth to her daughter Ava Marie
 last February. 
It must be a thing with fashion shows because Kristin Cavallari starred in season one of the E!  show The Fabulist while she was expecting her second child. 
It’s all good news for the future of working pregnant moms in the industry. Well at least on the small screen.

Celebrity Fall Maternity Styling Tutorial

This fall, if you aspire to look chic, trendy and stylish like some of our past Bellyitch Bumpwatch celebs, here are some tips to help you along.
1. Stick with basic solids. Black, White, Steel Gray, Red, Maroon, Pink, Beige are your go tos
2. Layer, layer, layer. You will be in various stages of feeling warm or cold anyway, so don’t put on too heavy clothes. Rather, start with a maternity tank, add a thin longsleeve jersey top over that, then top it with a sweater or blazer. Tights are good under skirts too. 


3. Accessories are your friend. Update or make trendy any basic style palette by adding whimsical scarves in fun patterns like leopard print or pucci to add a spark of color to your look. Malin Akerman above does it well while shopping.
4. Big bag. Will Travel. Carry a tote for several reasons. Not only because they can fit a lot of your junk but also, a tote in a structure style is a great fall look.
5. Oh what a Booty! Go with booties in low heel styles to give you a little lift but help you stay stylish. The ones Kristin Cavallari, Gwen Stefani and Kim Kardashian are wearing in the graphic above are great funky options.
6. It’s a Wrap.  Finally, instead of a thick overcoat or jacket, get a warm pashmina  or other oversized scarf to drape over your look. It will polish it off perfectly!

Good luck styling ladies!
