2018 Billboard Awards (Quick Rundown)

Mom-to-be Cardi B was nominated for seven Billboard awards tonight at the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada and came away with a win for Top Rap Female artist award besting Nicki Minaj who was also nominated in that category.

Our other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Janet Jackson showed up on the red carpet looking youthful as ever. She was on hand to receive the Icon Award, the first Black Woman to be bestowed the honor. She also performed a medley of her hits including “Nasty”, “Throb” and “If.”

Kelly Clarkson hosted the event and also looked fabulous in a medley of her own of fab  outfits. She started the night addressing the latest school shooting in Texas with a heart felt plea to do something more than have “moments of silences” and “thoughts and prayers” each time there is a school shooting in America. “It’s time we had a moment of action, she pleaded before kicking off the night. Later Khalid and Shawn Mendes did a moving tribute backed by the choir from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the site of another school shooting earlier this year.

 Christina Alguilera performed a duet with Demi Lovato. Jennifer Lopez performed her song  “Dinero” but without Cardi who did not attend the show and perhaps was dealing with the stresses of her fiance Offset getting into a terrible car accident. 

Other celeb moms we’ve featured prominently on the blog in attendance included Jenna Dewan Tatum in Zuhair Murad, Padma Lakshmi, Tyra Banks, Mila Kunis in David Koma  and  Ciara in a body fitting sheer dress..

Fun times!

Et Tu Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ Host Posts Breastfeeding While Glamming Photo

Breastfeeding while getting glam has been done before and most recently,we learned that Padma Lakshmi did it too in a throwback Thursday post she made this week on her Instagram page.

“This is a shout out to working Moms everywhere!! #TBT” the Top Chef host captioned a photo of herself putting on mascara with curler in her hair while her then newborn daughter Krishna, who is now 8-years old. 

What makes hers different than the 12 other times celebrity women have shared a breastfeeding while working photo is that she was doing her own makeup. Go girl!

Also learned while researching this piece: she was not sure who her daughter’s father was at the time because she was romantically involved with both the late IMG CEO and billionaire Teddy Forstmann, who died in 2011 at age 71, and Adam Dell, brother of Dell Computer founder Michael. She admitted this fact a couple of years ago inside her memoir, “Love, Loss and What We Ate.”

rob and chyna

January Jones, Kim Zolciak, Alicia Silverstone, Padma Lakshmi, Mayim Bialik and Tamera Mowry did it and now Blac Chyna will be the next celebrity to eat her baby’s placenta after she gives birth.

The future Angela Kardashian revealed this tidbit during an interview on her BFF Amber Rose’s podcast, Play. It’s Loveline with Amber Rose on Wednesday, September 14.

“I feel like with my second baby, I’m more educated than the first one,” the former model told Rose “Just reading and knowing the pros of breast-feeding for your baby, and just recently I found out some new, cool stuff about not cutting the cord and sending your placenta; you can get these pills to take them after to make you and the baby healthy.”

She will also join company with her future sisters in law Kim Kardashian West and Kourtney Kardashian who also revealed that they took placenta pills.

Chyna is expecting her second child with fiance Rob Kardashian. She has a son named King with ex-fiance rapper Tyga, who coincidentally is currently dating her future sister-in-law Kylie Jenner.  See this neat E! Chart
