Chrissy Teigen Asked Twitter for Parenting Advice

The results may make you cringe

Parenting might just be the toughest job out there (ok, maybe that’s a bit of a first world complaint, but still…).

Chrissy Teigen is the mother of beautiful 1-year-old baby Luna, and while their Instagram pictures usually portray a perfect mother-daughter relationship – babies will be babies.

Out of a cry of frustration, Teigen turned to Twitter for some help – considering Twitter fans are practically her psychologist.

Teigen asked her (over 7 million) fans to share with her the meanest things their kids did to them, to make herself feel better, of course.

The results are kind of hilarious, kind of horrific.

Take a look:

Kylie Jenner Pregnancy *Rumors*

The reality star is silent amidst rumors

Fans went crazy when gossip site TMZ announced that Kylie Jenner is pregnant, according to unexposed sources “close to her”.

Rumors went as far as to say that she and Travis Scot are expecting a baby girl, and that she has been telling all of her friends.

While it’s easy to brush off as simply rumors (every baggy shirt in Hollywood is considered an indicator of a pregnancy nowadays), Kris Jenner did not deny the rumors when asked about them, but rather gave a vague reply which says nothing at all.

It sounds like a case of a possible marketing hoax to raise ratings for the 10 year Kardashian reality anniversary, or it can also be real.

One thing is for sure – a pregnancy is nobody’s business but its bearer.

Can we please stop chasing rumors?

Whether or not they’re true – let’s leave the announcements to the only people who have the right to make them, and no, that does not include TMZ or anonymous “sources”.

How to Be More Productive In the Mornings

Simple changes to your morning routine and mindset can change your lifestyle

While some people complete their morning run and shower by 6 a.m., not all of us are early risers with a heap of motivation at the crack of dawn.

For others, waking up in the morning is mixed with feelings of anxiety, fatigue or simply a complete lack of motivation to begin another routine-fixed, monotonous day.

Have you ever noticed how easily you jump out of bed when you have a fun event or a vacation flight to catch?

However when you try to wake up at that same hour to work out or get errands done before work, you tend to linger in bed.

More than the impact of fatigue, we often suffer from the negative thoughts in our head.

A simple morning ritual reminding ourselves everything we have to be grateful for, and how much we will profit from the activities we get up early to do can set us on the right track to opening up extra hours in our day (which add up over time) to improve our lives.

Eliminating things that have long been on our to-do list can be one of the most gratifying decisions you make – and it will lead your life to be a fuller, more productive and happier one, in which you will appreciate yourself more and have more motivation to get up early the next day and begin another day full of accomplishments.

Adriana Lima Shares Her Workout Routine

This angel has been in shape with VS since 1999

Adriana Lima, who has been a Victoria’s Secret Angel for nearly two decades and is currently the mother of two, is still strutting a rock-hard physique down the runway with more confidence than most of her younger colleagues.

Lima reveals that she does not take time off from working out nor is it seasonal – she is ready to hit the runway all year long at a moment’s notice.

She works out every single day, and her routine primarily consists of boxing, along with alterations of weight lifting, jump roping, and workout classes.

And yes, she’s a pro at jump roping:

While working out every single day is probably not realistic for most working moms, when it’s your career – it makes sense.

However, one thing to learn from Lima’s routine is that you certainly need to enjoy it.

Whether you enjoy kickboxing or any other sport, make it your priority – as long as you’re moving, you are taking a giant leap forward in your journey to stay healthy.

Woman at the Center of Kevin Hart’s Cheating Scandal Speaks Out

It’s not his first scandal this past year

Kevin Hart’s public cheating scandal pretty much began when he turned to social media to publicly apologize to his pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish, and to his children from his previous marriage, about some undisclosed “mistakes” he has done.

Nobody really knew anything about these “mistakes” until Hart himself brought them to life, but the public apology was likely an attempt to show his extortioner that all has been revealed, and there is nothing left to blackmail him with.

Things got heated up, however, when the extortion attempt lead to the leaking of an unclear video allegedly featuring Kevin Hart and a mystery woman canoodling in a hotel room, and then getting dressed.

Not much was left to the imagination as to what Hart was apologizing to his pregnant wife for – although we can’t say we’re surprised, considering that he has already been caught in another videotaped alleged affair back in July, and considering his ex-wife claims that his current wife was his then-mistress before their divorce.

Now, amidst the drama, the woman at the center of the recent scandal has held a public press conference to say that she did have an affair with the actor, but she is not the one who videotaped nor tried to extort.

Take a look:

Stop Telling Women to Smile

IT’s annoying. And it’s sexist.

If you belong to the gender group which typically pees sitting down (although most of us talented ladies have also mastered the air-squat for public situations) – then you have probably received the order, or “suggestion” to smile quite a few times in your life.

No, we’re not talking about the moment you’re taking a group photo and everyone’s saying “cheese”.

We’re talking about the constant need for the human race to define how a woman should speak or act to look proper, respectful, but not too nice – because, of course, that’s already “asking for it”.

Women don’t need to fake emotions and they certainly don’t need to underexpress them either.

In fact, some of us were born with a resting bitch face and we love it – it’s actually a great way to relax your face and prevent wrinkles.

And some of us like to smile to be amiable to others – it doesn’t mean it’s an open invitation for whatever “it” is in the certain situation.

To summarize – next time you feel like telling a woman she needs to smile more or less, think twice about its meaning.

Selena Gomez Replaces Kylie Jenner As Face of Puma

She’s not wasting time getting back into the spotlight

Selena is busier than ever.

She has only recently recovered from having a kidney transplant due to her Lupus, and now she is already back in the spotlight picking up new, prestigious roles.

Adding to her recently-founded career with Coach, Gomez is now the face of Puma – as well as a designer on their team.

Officially a part of the fam @puma #pumapartner

A post shared by Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) on

Gomez’s boyfriend, The Weekend, also recently collaborated with Puma on a line of sneakers.

While Kylie Jenner received a lot of criticism for her role with Puma, with many fans claiming she was far from being athletic or a role model, do you think Gomez will enter this collaboration with full support?

So far, it looks like the huge mass of Gomez fans are lot letting through any noticeable backlash from haters – and there is still much more of the collaboration to be revealed.

Will she be designing a new clothing line for the brand? Maybe shoes?

Let’s wait and see what further surprises this Girly Warrior has in store for her fans.

For the Tenth Time, Jennifer Aniston is Fed Up With Pregnancy Rumors

This has gotten too far

After writing an open letter to the public which ultimately shamed the tabloids for having a party off of every picture they got of a slight belly bloat (yes, food babies) – Jennifer Aniston again had a thing or two to say about the topic of the (still) ongoing pregnancy rumors.

At the age of 48, it’s about time the tabloids relax and give Aniston her privacy to lead her life and make her own choices about her relationship, her lifestyle and her uterus.

As she already clarified last summer, a woman can be perfectly complete with or without a partner, and with or without children.

She recently told Glamour Magazine, “Having a child, as we know, is no one’s business except the couple or individual that’s going through it.”

Moreover, Aniston also emphasized during the interview the importance of giving more significant roles in Hollywood to women over 50.

She said: “I think we have to change our perspective. I don’t think life stops after 50—if anything, it gets more and more exciting.”

With Aniston still looking as healthy, happy and beautiful as the mischievous Rachel Green, we definitely agree that things don’t slow down nearing 50.

Angelina Jolie Says She’s “Stronger” After a Tough Year

The superwoman is heading back to work soon

Angelina Jolie’s divorce from Brad Pitt was a shock to their fans – but more importantly, it was likely a big shock to their family of six children.

Jolie spent the past year focusing on her children and has kept herself away from work for the time being.

Now, she told People that she is stronger and ready to go back to work.

As there are no directing projects which she currently feels passionate about, that would mean she’ll occupy herself with acting for now.

She clarified that most likely she will be working on the Maleficent sequel to begin with.

Going through such a public divorce has had a traumatic effect on Jolie but she is keeping her head held high and remaining strong as she has learned through so much adversity in her life.

Only the best can be wished for her beloved family, who, despite the split, have an amazing super-mom to learn from and aspire to.

Selena Gomez’s Friend is Grateful for Saving Her Life

Her sacrifice has giving a life back to her friend, and changed her own

Francia Raisa says that she feels “grateful” to have been able to give her friend her health back.

“The Secret Life of the American Teenager” star shared a touching photo of the two girls holding hands in their hospital beds after Gomez shared the news of the donation.

“I am beyond grateful that God would trust me with something that not only saved a life, but changed mine in the process,” Raisa said. “This was part of our story, and we will share it soon, but what is important now is that this is not the only story.”

Raisa also advocated for people to educate themselves on Lupus and on how they may help the cause – perhaps one of the underlying causes for the sudden spike in donations to the Lupus Research Alliance.

Since the news of the selfless donation were released, fans have become obsessed with this mysterious friendship which nobody even realize was so intensely strong and beautiful.

Francia Rais is one amazing Girly Warrior we admire.
