ICYMI: Watch Jennifer Hudson Take Us to Church in Hairspray Live!

jhud

In case you missed it, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Jennifer Hudson brought the house down (and some say saved) the NBC’s live musical Hairspray Live that aired this week, on Wednesday, December 7.

The actress played Motormouth Maybelle and did justice to one of the most powerful numbers, I Know Where I’ve Been which required pipes! Of course the Academy Award-winning actress could pull it off. After all, she won her Oscar in a role in a Dreamgirls remake that featured the mom to one taking audiences to church.

The musical takes place in 1960s Baltimore and focuses on the Civil Rights Movement, and in context, the song  Hudson belted out gave some extra significance to the lyrics.

Will ‘The American Sniper’s fake baby cost it the Oscar?

Ok I find it hilarious that some are saying the Twitter uproar over The American Sniper ‘s use of a fake baby in an intense scene in the movie will make it lose the biggest award at the Academy Awards tomorrow night. I just spotted entertainment reporter Lisa Respers France‘s article in CNN on that theory. 
In the film which portrays the life of the most deadly sniper in American history, Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) and his wife (Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Sienna Miller) are having a convo in the baby nursery after Kyle returns home from the war. Kyle picks up and rocks back to sleep a very obviously plastic baby doll dressed in pink.
Twitter had a field day when the movie first opened and now there are several reports of conspiracy theorists hypothesis that this solitary reason will be why the film maybe won’t win in the Best Picture category tomorrow. The baby has its own Twitter account and there have been several spoofs since then. 
“That’s why, a lot of times, producers hire multiple babies —  you can’t always guarantee a happy baby ready for filming,” Toni Casala, founder of LosAngeles-based Children in Film told the  Washington Post. “And if one doesn’t show up, you’re definitely in trouble.”
American Sniper screenwriter Jason Hall explained just that on Twitter: “Real baby #1 showed up with a fever. Real baby #2 was a no-show.”
Check out the clip of the embarrassing use of a plastic baby in a $60M big budget movie:

Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Biel debunk pregnancy rumors at Oscar events

Last night, was also about debunking false reporting about pregnancy.

A tiny bump in a photo with Jared Lareto at a pre-Oscar party had a few people speculating that Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon was preggers with her second kid with husband Jim Toth.

But the actress, who is mom to  14-year old Ava and 10-year old Deacon with ex-hubby Ryan Phillipe and 1-year old Tennessee with Toth, showed up at the Vanity Fair post-Oscar party in West Hollywood wearing a mid-length sequinned asymmetrical BOSS number with a plunging neckline  revealing plenty cleavage, side boob and bare tummy.  The Walk the Line actress toted a Roger Vivier clutch and wore Irene Neuwirth jewels.
Jessica Biel also shut down pregnancy rumors as well in a Chanel Couture dress at the Academy Awards, worn with Tiffany jewels last night, and revealing a pretty small tiny waistline. This confirmed what her grandmom-in-law had said in the press about how Biel and new hubby Justin Timberlake are too busy for children. 


“They are married but they are so busy, both of them, it’s hard going,” Timberlake’s grandmom Sadie Bomar told The Sun. “I’m sure when it’s right to have children they will, but not now. They do love each other dearly but they are apart so much it’s going to be hard going for them . . . I think Jessica finds that really tough. She’s on her own a good deal.”
Awww. Bellytich and other outlets had reported  back this January that the super cute power couple were expecting. Oh well. False alarm!
