Nickelodeon‘s Teen Choice Awards went this weekend at The Forum on March 24, 2018 in Inglewood, California. The event isn’t just for teens but some of the stars they admire including adults.
Our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums who are among our fave celeb moms Kristen Bell, Heidi Klum and Tiffani Thiessen also walked the red carpet. Bell and Klum presented awards, and Klum and our other alum Mel B, both America’s Got Talent judges, got slimed.
Frequent featureGal Gadot won for Choice Film Actress.
Mel B posed on the carpet with her children, daughters 19-year oldPheonix Chi Gulzar, 10-year old Angel Iris Murphy Brown and 6-year old Madison Brown Belafonte, with ex-husband Stephen Belafonte‘s daughter Giselle. Melanie Brown wore a silver catsuit! Grrrrr!
Bell wore a top and skirt by Emilia Wickstead, Faris earrings, and Jimmy Choo shoes while carrying a Meli Melo bag. Klum wore a dress by Redemption, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry on the red carpet. While presenting, Heidi wore a Vatinika top, Rosacha pants, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, andLorraine Schwartz jewelry.
This week, one of our fave morning shows, “The Fam in the Morning” had a debate about whether one would hire an attractive babysitter, nanny or au pair. The female host, Danni Starr, said a pretty girl DM’d her in response to an Instagram post Starr shared asking for a nanny. Starr, whose ex-husband cheated on her with a stripper and had a baby with one of their sitters, said she did not reply to the DM because she was not interested in exposing her new boyfriend to the attractive girl. Things went left when the two male show hosts, DJ Quicksilva and DJ 5-9 invited the rejected DM girl on the show and the girl proceeded to call Starr insecure. The debate turned into an all out fight live on air and it ended with Starr storming out and later tweeting that she was looking for a new job.
It sadly happened today, on International Women’s Day. Anyway, the fight trended on Twitter in DC and eventually went international when several news outlets including the UK Daily Mailcovered the ambush and subsequent spat and on air melee.
It reminded me of an article several years ago by now-defunct parenting blog Momlogicwhere they explored the idea of hiring a hot nanny and queried women’s response to the suggestion.
Most recently, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Mel B was embroiled in a battle with ex over an affair he had with their nanny.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ben Affleck, the late Robin Williams, Rob Lowe, Jude Law and other famous men have been caught having affairs with the nanny or babysitter. There are quite a few men who actually left their wives for the nanny. Certainly, there are examples among regular families too.
The site gathered responses from readers and below are the gems:
One of our Moms says her occasional sitter is gorgeous. “I’m less concerned about a sitter’s appearance than her personality. If I felt like she ‘connected’ with my husband in other ways—I’d have to let her go.”
Another Mom’s answer was short and sweet. “No.”She eventually added, “It’s like when you’re on a diet and you don’t want chocolate cake in the house. I trust my husband. But I really don’t want to expose him to temptation if I can help it!”
One Mom said “I don’t want some hot nanny in my house, picking up toys with her young, tight, little ass. Nope. I don’t want it.”
Another Mom said she’s always had nannies who looked like supermodels. “The funny thing is, my husband always hired them.” Okay. Hmmm.
Mel B wore a personally designed dress with a bold message on it to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday: a sequinned dress with the words “You Will Never Own Me” hand-stitched along the front, according to US Weekly magazine.
“The former Spice Girl arrived at the award show in a sparkly gold body con dress from Discount Universe with spaghetti straps, a V-neckline, and the words “You Will Never Own Me” written in rainbow hues down the front,” Emily Patrick, writing for the site wrote. “She ditched all accessories, letting her statement shift shine, pairing it with bright red pumps, minimal makeup, and her asymmetrical haircut swept over to one side.”
There is speculation as to who that message is addressing.
She is embroiled in a contentious divorce and custody battle with her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte.
A court ordered the America’s Got Talent judge to pay her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte $40,000 per month in temporary spousal support as well as $140,000 in attorney fees and forensic fees on Belafonte’s behalf. The two share a 5-year old daughter Madison.
But others have speculated that the message was addressed to co-judge on AGT, Simon Cowell, who took a jab at her failed marriage during a broadcast last week.
After an embarrassing technical malfunction on a magician contestant’s performance, Cowell quipped: “I kind of imagine this would be like Mel B’s wedding night. A lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.”
Afterwards, Brown jumped out of her seat, poured her glass of water onto Cowell’s lap and stormed off stage during the live taping. throwing a glass of water at him, Brown stormed out of the studio despite it being a live taping.
At a red carpet event after that taping, Mel B said of the incident, “He should know that if he says something inappropriate,he is going to get stuff thrown at him.”
She was also already emotional from watching another contestant’s touching performance and hearing a personal backstory.
“[Evie Clair] really made me cry because it made me think about my dad, and my dad recently passed away from cancer also, with an almost eight to nine years struggle. So a story like that from such a young girl really touches my heart,” Mel B told E! News “She just sounded so beautiful and I couldn’t stop crying, so I go from that to Simon saying something so rude and inappropriate.”
Eudoxie Agnanand hubby Ludacris (real name Chris Bridges) are crusing through their honeymoon stage of their marriage and she is looking hawt on his arms on red carpets always. I did notice that she always wears black and never deviates but each time, she wears dresses with nice cuts that hug her curvaceous figure. I love the simplicity of the t-neck on this dress.
Heidi Klum always dresses like a pageant queen to me and tonight, she looked went with one of those trending lace see through dresses with a peekaboo cleavage, also a hot trend. I don’t like the color of that dress on her as I feel it washes her out and is too neutral and I don’t think it flatters her shape.
Pink (real name Alecia Beth Moore Hart) is being honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award tonight and to celebrate, she brought 3/4ths of her family along including husband, former motorcross professional Cary Hart and 5-year old daughter Willow. Eight month-old baby Jameson, her second child, is probably home with nana. They wore matching pen stripe man cut suits! Yup! Even little Willow! It was cute!
I’m not sure if Mel B was sending a message to her estranged soon-to-be ex husband with a colorful glittery pencil length dress that reads “You Will Never Own Me” or paying homage to Lesley Gore‘s 1967 song “You Don’t Own Me” or Grace’s hit cover, but it was eye catching and I loved it.
She wore her hair in a sandy brown blunt messy half bob and red pumps. She and Klum arrived at the show together, according to her Instagram feed.
Amber Rose threw everyone for a loop by ditching her signature blonde buzz cut for wavy auburn brown side swept hair. She wore a figure hugging sheer see-through gown. I was not feeling the deep burgundy lip but if she was going for sexy goth then it works!
In year’s past, we’ve recognized the celebrities that we followed most and we’ve even awarded superlatives. This year, while reviewing a year’s worth of posts, we are prepared to award the Bellyitch Bumpwatch Celebrity Mom-to-Be of the Year.
Why do they deserve special recognition over the 20 and 30-something millennial celebrities who also gave birth in 2016, you ask?
As women age, it becomes even more challenging to conceive without medical intervention and to carry a baby to term. Therefore, when it happens, there is even more reason to celebrate given the odds and hurdles that must be overcome to achieve success.
Gestational carrier, surrogacy, adoption and other medical methods like IVF and donor egg have made it possible for some. A few have been successful without medical assistance. Either way, our hats off to those who balanced career and family and still had the time, ability and inclination to want to welcome a new addition in 2016.
You guys are the real MVP!
And more veteran moms over 40 have been keeping up and showing out the younger ones by showing off super fit bods. Fergie, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Ripa, Mel B. and Halle Berryshared photos of themselves in social media with super toned and ripped physiques.
Granted, we know celebrity women have access to personal chefs, trainers and a team of assistants to help them out with their children so they can hit the gym regularly and often. Also, they work in an industry where it is essential for them to have their bodies snatched back into fit and trim shape, but it still takes harder work and more dedication to stay fit when your metabolism slows and it gets harder to shed pounds and keep it off.
Check out some other celeb over 40 women with bad bods at Pop Sugar here!

Also, they work in an industry where it is essential for them to have their bodies snatched back into fit and trim shape, but I’d still like to shout out those who are over 40 and are ripped to the core including our Bellyitch Bumpwatch babes Fergie, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Ripa, Mel B. and Halle Berry, who all recently posted photos of themselves in bikinis looking Ah-May-Zing!

The MaximHot 100 List for 2016 isn’t out yet, but the photos of the celebrities that attended its party to celebrate this year’s list is. On it, we spotted five of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums.
Each came dressed in their most sexy attire because if you’re on the list, you have to prove you have a reason to be there right.
I think Mel B won the award for the most revealing. Her wine colored dress had a slit that revealed her bikini line. Wowza.
Eva Marcillealso went with a wine colored House of CB dress only hers was made of the same latex type material as the Givenchy Couture dress Beyonce wore to the Met Gala this year. Talk about hot, right? Literally and figuratively.
Draya Michelle wins the award for the best post-baby bounceback. I mean, she just had her baby 5 months ago in April! Whoa, baby! She worked a black leather halter top and a floor length skirt with lace inset both by Lethicia and it too had a generous slit as well.
Nicole Murphywins the award for the mom with the most kids with an awesome body. Check out her Grecian low cut dress from Camille Flawless.
Last, but not least, Amber Rose showed up and showed out in a wig and large Jackie-O sunglasses with a black halter top jumpsuit. It was giving me dominatrix meets Bond girl, yes?
Yesterday was The 2015 ESPYS at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California and as usual, we spotted some of the celebrity women we have featured in the past on the Red Carpet before the show. Halle Berry, Britney Spears, Ciara, Mel B and Lisa Leslie all made a turn on the crimson strip.
Kim Kardashian West attended but did not walk the Red Carpet but did have a great seat with all of her family to witness her Step-Dad the former Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn Jenner, accept the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
Here is the rundown of what the five who walked the carpet wore:
I really dug the belted magenta ombre Elie Saab Fall 2014 goddess dress Ciara wore while accompanying her beau NFL’s Russell Wilson, quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. I thought her Jimmy Choo heels were hawt! She was working that side slit.
Oscar-winning actressHalle Berry was on hand to present the Pat Tillman Award for Service to Danielle Green, a former Notre Dame basketball player, Iraq war veteran, and Purple Heart recipient. She went with a fit and flare flirty black lace and leather mini dress with bell cuffs. It was cute. Not the best I’ve seen on her. I didn’t really dig the messy tussled hair with this outfit. I guess she was going for rocker edgy. Meh.
I did love her wrap around ankle Brian Atwood heels and the Sylva and Cie jewels.
Britney Spearsattended and presented the award to the Best Female Athlete. She looked cute but quite uncomfortable in a fringe sequined Davidson Zanine dress that looked like one of the numbers she wears in her Vegas show. All of the pics showed her with her hands covering her bum
America’s Got Talent judgeMel B (Melanie Brown) looked super gorge in a simple pencil length red hot dress with criscross bodice, red pumps, box clutch and cherry red lipstick. The slick back is perfect for this dress. It’s simple and elegant.
Former WNBA player Lisa Leslie was vibrant and bright in a sunflower draped dress. It contrasted perfectly against her skin. She accented it with a box clutch, gold arm asp, bracelets and fan earrings. The sports commentator went with ringlets but would have looked better if it was an updo. She didn’t present but is the only athlete among the bunch!
I saw this smokin’ hawt photo of Christina Milian today and thought boy is her ex singer/ mega producer The Dream missing out. The couple was one of several celebrity pairs to split in the middle of a pregnancy and BEFORE the baby was born.
Christina Milian was 8 months pregnant when she filed for divorce from The Dream in 2010.
Personally, I know of a few friends who wound up splitting with their boyfriend or spouse before having their baby and each of them say it was very challenging being pregnant and not at least having someone to help them through those challenging months. A few have said, in hindsight, they would’ve waited it out until baby was born. Oy! Here are four other celebrities who split before their child was born:
In 2004, four months before delivering her 1st child, son Leni, whose dad is billionaire Flavio Briatore, Heidi Klum started dated Seal, who she later married and had 3 kids with before they too split in 2012.
Rapper Nas and singer Kelis were in the middle of filming their MTV reality TV show when they split while she was 7 months pregnant with their first child together in 2009.
Alexis Knapp had to get Ryan Phillippe to submit to a paternity test to prove that the child she was carrying was his. The two split before Knapp confirmed she was pregnant in 2010.
Ex Spice Girl Melanie Brown too had to force comedian/actor Eddie Murphy to submit to a paternity test to prove he was the father to her then-soon-to-be born daughter Angel Iris born ironically on Murphy’s 47th birthday, April 3, 2007. The couple had split in 2006 and back then there was no way of proving paternity until the baby was born.
No one knows for sure who the dad is to Mad Men star January Jones’ first child, son Xander, but she announced she was pregnant in May 2011, five months after splitting with her boyfriend Saturday Night Live‘s Jason Sudeikis. Rumors swirled that Ashton Kutcher may have been the dad. The two are good friends.
Edited to Add: I found this post of 12 Celebrities that broke up before the baby was born that Crushable did a year ago which also includes Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen, Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan, Mary Louise Parker and Billy Crudup and Tiki and Ginny Barber which I so would have added to this list had I remembered about them too!
