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

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

‘The Real’s Loni Love Opens Up About The Miscarriage That Turned Her Off From Having Kids

loni-love-the-real-759x438

On Tuesday, March 21st episode of the daytime panel talk show The Real co-host Loni Love opened up about previously suffering a miscarriage and being quite emotionally scarred form the experience.

During a segment on the show, Love says the entire ordeal convinced her to never have children (or even attempt) because  she never wanted to experience that feeling again.

“I finally went to the doctor and I was pregnant,” she opens up. “And Imma tell you something, your body goes through so much. And then at that time I started processing ‘cause then I had to start saving for the baby. I had to start doing all this… And I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, what am I going to do?’ Right? And then it was like the dude that I was with, he was excited, but I was still like really really nervous. But then, eventually you know that nature takes over, you like, ‘You know what, there’s nothing I can do. I’m just gonna have to have this baby and I’m just going to deal with it.’ And sure enough as soon as I was like okay with it, about eight weeks, I miscarried.”

It appears from the audible gasp, and shocked reaction of her co-hosts Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Adrienne Bailon, that they were clueless. Love later exclaims that’s the real reason she doesn’t have children.

‘The Real’s Adrienne Bailon on Becoming a Stepmom

adrienne bailon

The U.S. Census estimates about 50% of families are some form of stepfamily. The stepfamily has become the modern family.

Today on the FOX daytime panel talk show, The REAL, during its “Girl Talk” segment, co-host Adrienne Bailon discussed becoming a stepmom to her fiancé Israel Houghton’s four children.

During the segment, Hougton (who is visiting but is shown off set to the side), shares what the kids call Adrienne (“A”)  and Jeannie Mai asks what the couple would prefer the kids call here.

“If someone were to say, ‘Who is she?’ What do they say?” Bailon asks Hougton who responds, “They would probably say, ‘My dad’s wife.’  Right, something like that?”

Adrienne disagrees with Loni Love‘s suggestion that the kids may tell their friends that Adrienne is their stepmom, because “it sounds mean,” Bailon states.

Tamera Mowry-Housley then asks Hougton would he be okay with Bailon disciplining the children.

According to our past post about 14 tips for making blended family work, our experts suggests, that the biological parent only should discipline his/her children and the stepparent would only discipline based on rules agreed upon and presented to kids as a couple.”

Adrienne is thus correct in her reply when she tells the audience that she has no intention on sending the kids to their room.

“No, I’m not doing that. We are going to be good cop, bad cop and I am the good one, okay!” she tells Houghton who agrees, ” She’s going to be the good cop.”

Tamera Mowry-Housley takes 2-Month Old Daughter Ariah to NYC (VIDEO)

tamera mowry lax bellyitchblog.com

New mom Tamera Mowry-Housley is not showing her new daughter Ariah’s face on social media even though her millions of fans and followers have been nagging her to.

Well, those who want a glimpse of the actress and TV host’s baby could get a glimpse of her in her Orbit baby infant travel system after leaving with her mom at LAX heading to New York City to do some promotional interviews in advance of the second season of her hit FOX TV panel show, The Real.

Even while bombarded with the flashing lights of the paparazzi, this new mom kept a smile on her face and was so cordial even stopping to respond to their questions.

Here is a video of the arrival, captured by the folks at X17 Online.

When asked what she thinks of Kanye West saying he wants to run for president in 2020, she says, “He’d have a lot to say!” And on being a mom for the second time: “It’s awesome!”

(The sneaky devils captured Ariah’s face and zoomed in on it in this video though! Doh! Bastards!)

Mowry-Housley was joined by other members of the cast in doing the promo rounds, including co-panelist Loni Love at the Sirius XM studios in New York for an interview with another Bellyitch alum Jenni McCarthy.

 

 



The next day, their fellow panelist and yet another Bellyitch alum Tamar Braxton-Herbert did some promo rounds hitting up ABC’s Good Morning America looking all cute in her short dark bob which fits her face perfectly! We see you, Tamar!

Tamar Braxton and Tamera Mowry-Housley’s “The Real” returns September 15 ( VIDEO TRAILER)

Sadly, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Bethenny Frankel lost her FOX channel reality TV show when it didn’t get renewed for a second season.

But on an upside, our other alums Tamar Braxton Herbert and Tamera Mowry-Housley will debut a full season of their new talk show The Real on the same network this September 15.

The new moms and their co-hosts had a successful  short test run in limited and select markets this past summer 2013 (NY, Philly, LA, D.C Phoenix, Houston and Tampa) that was ratings gold. The show got picked up for a full season and will have a nationwide run starting late Summer.

Actress and Singer Adrienne Bailon (The Cheetah Girls),  comedian Loni Love and  TV host Jeannie Mai (How do I Look) round off the other ladies in the multicultural and younger answer to ABC  channel’s The View. 





According  to a press release announcing the premiere date:

These women are all going through varied life experiences, including new motherhood, new marriages, dating or singledom, that relate to every woman’s own trials and tribulations. Unlike other talk shows, each of the five hosts is admittedly a “work in progress” and fearlessly invites the home audience into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion will turn the traditional talk show on its head. 

Fun! Are you excited about the new show launching? Catch a promo reel hear:
