Kourtney Kardashian: Home births are risky, not ‘as sanitary as a hospital’

kourtney fit

I ended up watching about 20 minutes of an episode of Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons last weekend (don’t ask!). I was reminded of something… Kourtney is the least interesting Kardashian, especially since she became a mom. I just think motherhood is her identity at this point, and to give her some credit, she seems like a very involved and loving mother. But that’s it – She only cares about her children, often to the exclusion of everything else. After watching part of that episode… it does seem like she’s an a—hole about everything else, especially Scott. I feel like she only keeps him around so she can keep on having babies. Anyway, she’s about to give birth to her third, so she got the December cover of Fit Pregnancy. It’s actually an interesting interview but that’s just because she’s talking about all of the hot-button mommy/birthing issues. Some highlights:

She wants to take care of her babies from the start: “I love doing everything myself at the beginning. I’m not getting a baby nurse. I take two months off and no one is allowed to bother me or talk to me about anything work-related — or maybe three months this time.”

Breastfeeding: “I nursed Mason for 14 months and Penelope for 16, and I loved it,” she shares. “It was built-in time that the two of us could share alone every day. I didn’t have any goals or expectations.”

Easy pregnancies & easy postpartum: “Both were really easy. I actually pulled both babies out of me! I was out of the hospital so fast both times because I just wanted to get home. I stayed in my pajamas for 30 days and kept the house really quiet. It’s the only time I feel I have that excuse to shut everyone out and shut everything off. That time is a gift.”

She’s all about a hospital birth: “I think it’s smarter and safer. I witnessed a home birth with my sister Khloé and, after seeing it, I felt it wasn’t for me. There was too much risk involved and it wasn’t as sanitary as a hospital.”

She wants her third birth to involve less people: “I really want a calm environment, and with too many people in the room, it’s hard to focus on what’s going on. This time I think I’ll have some calming music. Just no candles — I don’t want any fire situations.”

They know the sex of the baby but they’re keeping the nursery color scheme neutral: “The room is neutral now. It has lots of grays, which I think is pretty. We’ll probably just keep it the way it is.”

Mommy guilt: “After Mason was born, I’d feel guilty doing anything that wasn’t related to work. If it was a good friend’s birthday and I had to go to dinner, I’d think, ‘I don’t want to be here. I want to be at home.’ After my daughter was born, I made a promise to myself to live in the moment. Now, if I have to go to New York for work for one night, I’ll meet my friends for dinner and really enjoy it… Also, Mason and Penelope have each other now, so I don’t feel as guilty about leaving them occasionally.”

[From People Mag]

Some people have very extreme feelings about home births versus hospital births. I guess it’s bad form these days to say that every woman is different and you should just go with what makes you comfortable. I can’t decide if I think Kourtney is throwing shade on those women who do choose home-births or if Kourtney is just saying this is what makes sense for her. I’ve always said that if a baby was ever coming out of me, I would want those old-fashioned knock-out drugs in a hospital setting. I would need to be unconscious or on #AllTheDrugs to get through childbirth.

Sadie Robertson: The Duggars Are Awesome! It’s an Honor Being Compared to Them!

Duck Dynasty and Dancing With the Stars cast member Sadie Robertson isn’t shying away from media reports comparing her to the Duggar family members.

If anything, she welcomes being talked about in the same sentence.

The 17-year-old survived this week’s Dancing With the Stars results show and is on to the final four, where she will battle for the Mirror Ball trophy.

Given her upbringing and somewhat unorthodox road to stardom, Sadie Robertson is also sparking a great deal of media interest beyond her dancing abilities.

Specifically, some people want to compare her to the Duggar family.

If you watch Duck Dynasty or watch 19 Kids and Counting online, you know that both popular reality shows center around a conservative Christian family.

Both family patriarchs have sparked some controversy, as well.

Jim Bob Duggar is in the news for removing photos of same-sex couples kissing on their Facebook page, having invited married couples to send in such photos.

Sadie, whose grandfather Phil Robertson is no stranger to polarizing and outspoken views on same-sex marriage, was asked how she feels about this.

Despite the backlash – and the petition to cancel the Duggars’ show – Sadie is happy to be compared to the TLC family, who she considers “wonderful.”

“It doesn’t bother me at all,” she said. “I’ve actually met the Duggars and they’re great people. So to be compared to them is actually an honor, not anything bad.”

Sadie may not care about the Duggar family’s anti-gay beliefs because her family shares the values, even if the younger members are more diplomatic.

At this time, the petition to cancel 19 Kids and Counting has 43,000 signatures, but Sadie’s been there, and the allegations haven’t affected her feelings.

“They’re wonderful people,” she added of the Duggars.

“And I actually wish that I could hang out with them more because we actually do have a lot of the same values so it’s cool to be compared to them.”

They both stand by their convictions, that’s for sure.

To see Sadie in her element, you can watch Duck Dynasty online, and at least for the next week, check her out her skills on Dancing With the Stars too!

Benedict Cumberbatch covers Time Mag’s ‘Genius Issue’: otter realness?

bendy time

I’m sure there are twenty million new Benedict Cumberbatch interviews I’m ignoring, but what can I say? After a relative Cumberdearth for most of the year, we are being gifted with an Excess Batching. And the rumors were true – Benedict and an original Enigma machine cover the new issue of Time Magazine this week. It’s “The Genius Issue.” Time really loves Benedict, right? This is the second time he’s made the cover. Time hasn’t released their cover story online for non-subscribers, but if you do subscribe, go here to read the piece. I’m including one of the Time videos at the end of the post. I do like this cover – it’s not as OTTERFACE REALNESS as some of his other mag covers.

What else… the New York Times had a little write-up about Benedict, Harvey Weinstein, Charles Dance and Keira Knightley at the post-premiere party. Benedict is drinking, Keira is abstaining (probably because she’s totes preggo, at least in my mind), and Charles Dance was comparing her TIG character to Tywin Lannister. Harvey says that his wife, Georgina Chapman (of Marchesa!) thinks Benedict is “the hottest thing in the world.” Cough. Please God, do not let Benedict or Sophie wear any Marchesa.

And there’s this too – Us Weekly got an “exclusive” statement from Bendy about his wedding plans:

Sherlock may keep his wedding a complete secret! Benedict Cumberbatch briefly opened up about his impending nuptials to fiancee Sophie Hunter during the CNN Heroes event in NYC on Tuesday, Nov. 18.

“I think I’ll be having a very private wedding,” the 38-year-old told Us Weekly on the red carpet.

The soon-to-be spouses stepped out following the news for Cumberbatch’s Imitation Game NYC premiere on Nov. 17. There, Hunter showed off her eye-catching halo set diamond ring.

[From Us Weekly]

Well… yeah. I mean, what’s the alternative? A big, splashy public wedding? Otters do like to splash things… but no, he’s not going to, like, sell his wedding photos to People Magazine. But if they do marry, I bet it will be in London and I bet some paparazzi do get some shots.

You can see the behind-the-scenes Time Magazine videos here. Here’s a video of Bendy talking about TIG:

Benzino: FIRED From Love & Hip Hop Atlanta For Post-Reunion Death Threats!

Benzino has been fired from VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta after the infamous reunion show brawl, and for his alleged actions in the weeks that followed.

Benzino on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta

Apparently, death threats he made following the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta reunion fight triggered Benzino’s firing more than his role in the epic fracas itself.

According to TMZ, Benzino got the chop soon after the taping, too.

Multiple cast and crew members ended up in the hospital as a result of the melee, which you can watch Love & Hip Hop Atlanta online now to experience.

Criminal charges and an arrest warrant were even taken out against Joseline Hernandez, Stevie J’s partner and Benzino’s (former) co-star and rival.

It was Benzino, though, who had a problem letting the thing go.

Stevie J says he waged a campaign of terror, threatening the lives of himself and Joseline, producers and other staffers involved with the VH1 program.

“He said flat out he was going to kill us,” Stevie recalls.

The threats and elevated DefCon 3 tension levels were too much for the network, which cut ties with the cast member rather than risk anything escalating.

Benzino tells a different story than Stevie, shockingly.

“Stevie J is a habitual liar and VH1 has never given me a reason for being fired,” he adds, lamenting that “they wanted to keep the crackhead whore.”

That would be Hernandez. Reports have circulated that Joseline was on crack during the reunion, though Stevie has angrily denied those allegations.

In any case, Benzino did get fired, he concedes.

Will anyone else be axed from the cast next?

That remains to be seen, but expect this show to be back with a vengeance come 2014. Between that fight and the Mimi sex tape, ratings were sky high.

Higher than Joseline on … never mind.

Duchess Kate in Hobbs & Jenny Packham in London: mismatched or cute?

kate1

Here are some photos of Duchess Kate doing some royal work last night in London. This event – for Place2Be – was actually held at Kensington Palace, so Kate could probably walk to the room where this was being held. Place2Be is one of Kate’s patronages and the event was a celebration of the Child Champion Award – go here to read more. Kate is being identified as “four months pregnant” at the moment. She’s barely showing. It was like before though, wasn’t it? When she was pregnant with George, it wasn’t until month five or six that she really “popped.”

As for her fashion… this ensemble is awful. I’m sorry, but it is! It’s like she got dressed in the dark. She paired a black polka-dotted peplum top by Hobbs with a blue satin skirt by Jenny Packham. The two pieces simply don’t go together – this isn’t “power clashing” or whatever. This is just a woman with no “eye” for putting together a cocktail-dress-code outfit. Something nice: her hair looks pretty. We always have to praise her when she pulls it back!

I wonder how many events Kate is going to do between now and the NYC trip? It will be her first-ever trip to New York, you know. I wonder if she’ll be able to fit in a spot of shopping.

Kim Kardashian Show’s Nori’s “At Home” Face Vs “Paparazzi” Face

Kim kardashian daughter north west facesRemember when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West said they were going to keep their child out of the spotlight, back before little North West was even born? Well, I’m not sure if Nori’s made any appearances on ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ so far, but once they introduced her to the world by bringing her to fashion shows at Paris Fashion Week, it was clear that we were going to get to know their daughter. Now Kim shows how she’s taught Nori to have an expression just for the paparazzi. RELATED: Kim Kardashian carries her Nori-painted bag.

Kim posted these pics on Instagram. For the one with Nori’s adorable big smile, she wrote:

What we’re like at home…

For the one with Nori’s more solemn expression, Kim wrote:

What we’re like in front of the paparazzi…

Is it just me or does Nori definitely look like Kanye West’s daughter when she’s sporting her “paparazzi” face? LOL. Kim sounds like she’s missing her little one. She also posted a third pic of Nori with her cousins, Mason and Penelope, and wrote:

Missing these three sooooooo bad!!!!

Hopefully she’ll be back from Australia soon.

Sons of Anarchy Season 7 Episode 12 Teaser: What Will Jax Do?

Juice spilled everything on Sons of Anarchy Season 7 Episode 11, revealing to Jax every last detail of the night Tara was murdered.

The former SAMCRO member believes (and rightfully so, we bet) that this means his time is almost done, but the real question on the minds of fans everywhere centers around Gemma.

Will Jax actually kill his mother now that he knows the truth? Will he be able to go through with it?

Based on the teaser for Sons of Anarchy Season 7 Episode 12 – which is titled “Red Rose” and which airs on Tuesday, December 2 – Gemma will be in hiding, while Jax will have something else to worry about:

A meeting with the Indian Hills charter that could result in a Mayhem vote. And his subsequent death.

Might this be the way Sons of Anarchy goes out? With the death of Jax Teller?

Take a look above at scenes from next week and then watch Sons of Anarchy online via TV Fanatic right here and now:

Kathy Griffin Replacing Joan Rivers On ‘Fashion Police’?

joan rivers & kathy griffin (1)Has E! finally found a replacement for the late Joan Rivers? According to TMZ, the answer is “yes.” Rumor has it comedienne Kathy Griffin will replace Joan on ‘Fashion Police.’ RELATED: Will Melissa Rivers be forced to sue to uncover the details of how her mother died?

I remember when Kathy used to do the red carpet for E!. Then she made a joke about the then-child actress Dakota Fanning being in rehab. I believe that’s why the network let her go: she refused to apologize for the joke. Sounds like it’s water under the bridge now ;).

There hasn’t been an official announcement, but I think Kathy would be a great replacement. The show reportedly won’t be weekly but will air during special events, such as awards shows. Soon E! will announce if it is indeed Kathy who’s replacing Joan or someone else.

Anna Wintour Finally Opens Up About Kimye Vogue Cover

Foundation Louis Vuitton Opening - PhotocallAspiring fashion icon Kim Kardashian may have paid homage to Anna Wintour by dressing up as the iconic Vogue editor this past Halloween, but it sounds like Anna doesn’t reciprocate her affection. She relented and had Kim and Kanye West on the cover of Vogue last March; now she’s finally coming clean about the whole thing… and something tells me neither Kim nor Kanye will be happy about it. RELATED: Sarah Michelle Gellar unhappy about Kimye Vogue cover: are you with her?

Here’s what she said about the cover, which reportedly sold less than a typical issue with only 300,000 copies:

I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine.”

So if it’s boring to remain tasteful, then what does that make Kimye? OUCH. Anna added:

The first celebrity that I put on the cover was Madonna, and that was considered completely controversial at the time, too. Now and again one has to do things like that,” she said, explaining that otherwise, “nobody would talk about us. It’s very important that people talk about us.”

I see her reasoning, but still… OUCH. Something tells me Anna’s going to get a mention in Kanye’s next rant.
