Kate Middleton The Duchess Stuns In Her LBD

The Duchess Of Cambridge Attends Action On Addiction DinnerClearly the morning sickness is getting better for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge! Here’s the former Kate Middleton on her third public engagement this week. She attended the Action on Addiction Autumn Gala Evening at L’Anima. RELATED: The Duchess makes her first public appearance since announcing her second pregnancy.

I feel redundant saying this, but again, as usual, I’m loving this dress. It’s a crochet dress by Temperley. If it hasn’t sold out yet, it will. This is a great LBD to have in your closet.

I’ve read people talking about her “tiny baby bump.” Sorry, I don’t see it- LOL. I’d never guess she was pregnant without the formal announcement. I’m not holding my breath, either, She wasn’t showing in her last pregnancy until practically her third trimester. My guess is she’s going to hide her baby bump in coat dresses, given the chilly London weather. Well, she’ll still look great ;).

Parenthood Season 6 Episode 5: The Fluid Scale of Affection

Amber started feeling a new crush and young Max received advice from Adam on how to talk to a girl at his school on last night’s Parenthood Season 6 Episode 5.

How did those developments, and the many others Thursday, play out?

In typical fashion, it was a genuine mix of uplifting and poignant tales.

Max’s crush on Dylan, one of the core stories this week, is just the latest part of a story that has played out as long as you watch Parenthood online.

How do parents reconcile their own dreams, and heartbreak, as they help raise and thus give so much of their own lives to those of their children?

Kristina and Adam’s responses to Max’s affection for Dylan is a prime example of this. He’s all for it, she’s much more reserved. Both are clearly moved.

In the end, the parents meet in the middle, urging Max to focus on his best self in a story that simultaneously manages to make you smile and almost cry.

Perhaps they should help out Crosby with this same approach.

The youngest of Zeek’s four kids is off the rails to the point where Jasmine physically locks up motorcycle so he can’t drive it around aimlessly.

Crosby is a total mess, yet the reasons why are not entirely clear.

Perhaps that realization was ironically made clear this week, as no one can quite figure this guy out. Often, this is the case in real life, but on TV?

Only on Parenthood would they attempt some of these things.

Now that Amber has decided to keep the baby, she’s going through a pretty serious transition as well, and it’s going to change the way she does everything.

Case in point? She likes a guy and doesn’t know whether or not to tell him she’s pregnant right away. Once again, Drew was the star of this storyline.

Encouraging her to be up front, then being there for her when it didn’t go well, Drew’s bond with Amber – strengthened by her pregnancy – is wonderful to watch.

Other relationships aren’t thriving as much as crumbling.

As Julia is dating Chris, she wonders how (if at all) she should integrate him into her kids’ lives, and when it does happen by happenstance, Joel is there.

Once again in typical Parenthood fashion, we have a situation where it’s impossible to truly hate, or unabashedly side with, Team Joel or Team Julia.

Isn’t that remarkably realistic in a sense?

So many things in life are not black and white. Parenthood is one of the few shows willing to give its stories the time and depth to venture into that gray area.

Reign Season 2 Episode 4 Recap: Like Lambs to the Slaughter

Thursday night on Reign Season 2 Episode 4, we saw the domestic impact of the constant struggle for institutional power takes place on the CW series.

The personal side of the political power struggle made for something of a departure from the norm, and perhaps most significantly, Greer took control.

Greer’s attraction to Leith is a key aspect of Reign Season 2 Episode 4, even if she concedes, openly and honestly, that she is uninterested in a life of great risk.

Just passion, which seems to trump great risk.

The christening of Francis and Lola’s child, an event which Catherine is planning to Lola’s great resentment, also played a role in this latest installment.

Lola nixes Catherine as a godparent, explaining “we have a long history of reasons why” and being remarkably polite about that given the circumstances.

Francis stands beside his wife quietly here.

Lola may be considered to be the “most powerful woman” as the king’s mistress, but with a total lack of transparency, that is marginally true at best.

Well, if you watch Reign online, you know she doesn’t always get a chance to fight back against this. Last night was the exception, and she loved it.

Mary had to summon her political strengths just to win an argument that was otherwise unwinnable, a fact that her rival seemed to quietly relish in.

Since Lola’s been pregnant, a lot of their interactions have seemed almost mundane, but not so here, where you could cut the tension with a knife.

Sadly, they reconciled remarkably quickly.

Hopefully it’s a dramatic battle to be fought another day, because that felt like a long time coming and clearly there’s a lot of pent up anger to go around.

Also fading away quickly was Mary’s brief pregnancy storyline, which saw her conceive and lose the baby in a very short period of screen time.

Her poignant blend of physical pain, emotional grief and regal resolve told the story though, and were perfectly in character for a woman of her stature.

Does she not feel? Of course she does.

But there is an expectation that the kingdom comes first and that her wants and needs – or at least feelings – are secondary. She is tragically guarded.

The whole second season so far has built up to situations with stark realities and complicated situations, even if Francis seems to still be consequence-free.

Where do we go from here? We can’t wait to find out. Follow the above links to watch this and past episodes for yourself and share your comments on it!

Shakira Shows Off Baby Bump, Gushes Over “New Favorite Accessory”

Her hips don’t lie. And neither does her Instagram account.

Shakira showed off her pregnancy progress online last night, sharing a new photo of herself, her baby bump and her long-time boyfriend, Gerard Piqué.

“Celebrated my partner Puig’s 100th Anniversary tonight, and wearing my new favorite accessory, #Rock!” the artist wrote as a caption to the following image.

Gerard Piqué and Shakira Pic

Shakira and Piqué are already parents to a son named Milan – and the sexy singer recently opened up to E! News about her second pregnancy.

“Now that I’m pregnant I’m trying, for the first time in my life, to not do so many things at the same time,” she said. “Although, it’s always difficult and issues get in the way even when you don’t want them to. But the majority of the time I do dedicate myself to taking care of my belly, my pregnancy, [and] Milan.”

Shakira added that she’ll start work on a Spanish album at some point in 2015, but not until her next child enters the world.

And she won’t be alone in becoming a new mother. Here’s a look at 11 famous females all expecting a precious package once the calendar flips:

Kate Middleton


Another royal baby is on the way! Kate Middleton and Prince William will welcome it into the world in April 2015.

Nashville Season 3 Episode 5 Recap: Truth Via Text

Well, that’s one way to tell someone they’re about to be a father.

On Nashville Season 3 Episode 5, Juliette couldn’t hide her pregnancy for much longer. Her tour outfits were too tight and she just wanted to lie on the couch all day, but Emily kept reminding her boss that Avery has a right to know about his child.

So Juliette texted him the news. Just like that.

He received the life-changing message while doing community service on the side of the highway and then screamed about it outside Juliette’s movie set trailer after she wouldn’t let him in.

Glenn, meanwhile, returned and dressed down Avery (with Juliette looking on in horror), telling the young man:

“Juliette was raised in chaos. There’s no way I’m gonna let the same thing happen to her child.”

Noah later assures Juliette that her secret is safe with him – and then also makes it obvious that he’s into her.

Later that same night, Juliette has difficulty breathing. She staggers off stage during the concert and Zoey takes over with the last verse of “Tell That Devil.” She slays it.

Due to Jeff’s pushing, Will asks his trainer to sign a non-disclosure agreement. This prompts a fight over their relationship (is it about sex or more than just sex?) and it also leads to Mr. Lexington getting beat up by some gay haters in a park.

Deacon is then at the hotel when Will arrives and pieces together that Lexington is gay. He tells Will he’s there if he wants to talk.

Back in Nashville, Layla wants Jeff to take her album more seriously. Could she even write some songs for it? No, he tells her. Just shut up already. So Layla cries, looks at the pills in her vanity and breaks a mirror.

On to Gunnar: we learn his ex, Kiley, has a nearly 10-year old son who must be Gunnar’s child. Gunnar begs her to tell him the truth about the boy. He cries over how he has no family left.

But Kiley mostly just responds by acting all nervous and mysterious.

Finally, Rayna and Luke bring their children to a commercial shoot. It doesn’t go well, especially when Daphne tells Rayna that she sucks. Once all of the hurt feelings and suspicions of parental inadequacy are addressed, the gang goes bowling. Naturally.

The next night, before a show, Rayna bawls over how she’s lost touch with her daughters (Maddie now has highlights?!?), but is able to pull herself together and take the stage when the time arises. This is why she’s the First Lady of Country Music.

What did you think about this week’s selection of Nashville music?

Zoe Saldana Stylish In Stripes

Pregnant Zoe Saldana Goes House-Hunting In Beverly HillsNow while Kate Middleton’s baby bump may not be all that evident yet, Zoe Saldana’s definitely is- LOL. You can tell she’s due pretty soon, and she’s pregnant with twins, no less, so there’s no hiding her belly. Love that striped shirt. Is it just me or are there are lot of stripes this season? RELATED: Zoe Saldana dishes on her pregnancy, including her due date!

Zoe and husband Marco Perego were checking out a house. Looks like they’re buying a home for their soon-to-be brood. I don’t envy Zoe trying to deal with welcoming kids (twins!) and get settled in a new house. Neither one of those things is easy on it’s own, and combining both of them? I feel exhausted just thinking about it.

Lucky for Zoe, I’m sure she’ll have plenty of help, though. That should make things easier. Somewhat.

Jill Duggar’s Walmart baby registry includes Gatorade, Purell: makes sense?

jill3

Confession: my town is really Jesus-y. I’m surrounded by Southern Baptists and I’m sort of fine with it. My new neighbors are this young Duggar-esque Baptist family with like four kids under the age of five. Last Christmas, I gave all of the kids holiday M&M packages and they were thrilled. This is my thought process: I probably don’t agree with any of their beliefs, but they make for great neighbors.

Anyway, since I’m surrounded by Southern Baptists, I spend too much time thinking about how professional religious people make a living. It’s actually pretty easy – Professional Christianity is a growth industry. There are books/publishing, lecture circuits, religious schools (nursery, K-12, college, graduate schools can all have religious affiliations), reality shows, Christian entertainment, plus the old stand-by: actually being employed by a church. I know the Duggar Family has a reality show, but with so many kids, that’s probably not the extent of their income. I would imagine that someone like Jill Duggar is also giving paid speeches, being paid to endorse certain campaigns or products, plus she probably has some other revenue streams (she’s studying to be a midwife). My point is that… I doubt Jill Duggar is rich, but she’s probably got enough money where she doesn’t need to do the baby registry at Walmart. And she definitely doesn’t have to include Gatorade on her baby registry.

Ask and you shall receive! Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are gearing up for their first baby by registering for gifts at their local Walmart! According to their wish list, the 19 Kids and Counting stars are asking for a mix of everyday items and a few splurges.

For example, the couple requests Purell hand sanitizer, Bounty paper towels, Arm & Hammer detergent, Boudreaux’s butt paste and even an eight-pack of orange flavored Gatorade. Hey, new moms need replenishing too. There are also several items friends and family can purchase at a higher price. The couple’s most expensive item is a $199 stroller followed by a newborn napper station at $159. As of Tuesday afternoon, already 64 gifts have been purchased as the couple eagerly waits for the March 24, 2015 due date.

“We are so excited for this new little blessing and look forward to the arrival of ‘Baby Dilly’ in March 2015,” the couple wrote on the registry. The TLC reality stars recently learned their firstborn will be a handsome boy. They discovered the news during a gender-revealing ultrasound Saturday.

“Oh yes, there was some screaming in the room,” Jill recalled to People magazine. “I thought all along we were having a girl. Everyone made their guesses.” Before the ultrasound, Derick admitted that he “was praying for a big, healthy baby.”

In the meantime, the happy couple is simply enjoying their pregnancy journey and not thinking too much about the baby’s name.

“We are not going to do a letter theme,” Jill shared. “But we may do some kind of theme, like family names.” And get ready, folks. This is likely the first of many kids for the happy family. “I have loved having lots of brothers and sisters and although Derick comes from a family with just one brother, both of us would love to have as many children as God will give us,” Jill shared with Page Six. Congrats to the happy couple. Now let’s start shopping!

[From E! News]

How common is it to put stuff like Gatorade and Purell on your baby registry? I really don’t know – I’ve never looked at a Walmart baby registry before today (I live a sheltered life, I know). If I was buying the gifts (and I AM NOT), I would just get them a gift certificate to Walmart and let them go wild with all of the Gatorade they could ever want (for the baby, obvs). Also: Walmart sells guns and I’m absolutely shocked that there are no weapons on the baby registry. You would think that a Duggar would have insisted on baby’s first shotgun.

Kate Middleton First Public Appearance Since Announcing Second Pregnancy

Prince William & Kate Watch The Horse Guards ParadeYesterday was a good day, health-wise, for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a. Kate Middleton). She was able to make her first public appearance since announcing her pregnancy. Kate joined Prince William in welcoming President of Singapore Tony Tan and his wife, Mary, when they arrived in London. RELATED: Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting baby #2 in April 2015!

The Duchess even felt comfortable enough to attend the Horse Guard Parade, which was part of the welcoming ceremony for the President and his wife. She looks fantastic, as always. Now I’m sure there will be people who can claim to see a baby bump, since she’s made it into her second trimester, but I’ll be honest: I don’t see it in this coatdress.

During her first pregnancy, Kate wasn’t showing until well into her second trimester, possibly the beginning of her third. She might start showing earlier this time, since the baby bump can show up a little earlier in subsequent pregnancies, but she’s so slim, I’m not holding my breath- LOL.
