Pregnant Jennifer Love Hewitt quits Twitter

Jennifer Love Hewitt takes a stroll in Beverly Hills with fiance Brian Hallisay

After over 5,000 tweets and amassing over 600,000 followers, actress and mom-to-be Jennifer Love Hewitt has quit Twitter.

Last Wednesday, she tweeted the following last words before taking a self-imposed break:
Unfortunately with all the negativity people choose to send on twitter as well as threats to there (sic) own well being. I'm sad to say twitter is... no longer for me. I have enjoyed all the kindness and love that came my way, as well as support.

But this break is needed. Life should be filled with positivity and holding each other up, not making threats and sending bad vibes. To those of you who made it a joy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
She won't be the first celeb to end a relationship with the social media site which connects stars with their fans and critics. Currently, Lady GaGa is on a self-imposed hiatus. Chris Brown, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and others have had to take a time out too.

While Twitter is great to get unfiltered access to celebrities and a peak into their true selves, it is also a medium for some pretty mean, angry and unhappy people who enjoy poking at, cyberbullying and in their eyes "bringing celebrities down to size" via some of the spiteful and intentionally or recklessly hurtful things they say.

So while you need a tough skin to live in the public limelight, you also don't have to take verbal abuse.

Tamar Braxton-Herbert: "You don't fall in love with your newborn immediately, Somebody lied"

Tamar Braxton Herbet said she didn't immediately fall in love with her son after delivery as everyone says to be expected.

She talked baby and her new daytime talk show The Real with CocoaFab TV's CNikky during the 2013 BET Awards weekend at one of the TV show's gifting suite.

"Immediately everything changes but immediately you don’t fall in love, but I heard that you do but they lied," Tamar said. "Somebody lied."

Alrighty then. Some of the moms commenting on the video at couldn't understand how a new first time mom wouldn't immediately fall in love with her kid from birth while others came to her defense. Some admitted suffering from Baby Blues and not feeling that maternal instinct immediately either.

Realistically, there are plenty of mothers, some who develop post-partum depression immediately after giving birth and others never really form a bond or connection. They feel ostracized if they don't express what all moms are supposed to. Most deal with their feelings alone. And over time, they may feel more connected. 

All moms are different. Kudos to Tamar for setting the record straight and speaking out on behalf of some moms out there who have felt the same as she did.

The rest of the interview:
On her son Logan and if it was love at first sight
Logan is everything. He is so yummy. Immediately everything changes but immediately you don’t fall in love, but I heard that you do but they lied. Somebody lied. Just like you fall in love with a little person, its just like that. You fall in love with little people. He is so yummy.

On one of the best moments she’s had with Logan so far
Watching Vince and the baby interact. It’s so beautiful. This is like his next of kin in the family, [Vince] doesn’t have any parents so, watching them together bond [is amazing]. They look alike its so crazy, they act alike. [Logan] is very fair, but everything else is Vincent Herbert.

On The Real
I get to be a real grown up [laughs]. The Real is like The View but its from a younger perspective and opinions that we care about. You know what I mean? It’s so great and it’s so positive. We just started shooting it last week and it’s the most amazing experience I’ve ever been a part of.

[The View] is almost like listening to your great aunt or great grandmother, without being disrespectful, but The Real is like your girlfriends, your sister, your cousin. Somebody’s opinion that you respect, but you can agree to disagree. Like Tamera and I have totally different opinions, but we real cool [laughs]. It’s like come check in with your girlfriends on The Real.

On whether she will be returning to Tiny Tonight
I was never signed on to be a part of the whole series, just the two episodes. It was really fun. Tiny is still my best friend. We still have a blast together but this is something that is totally different.

On when Tamar and Vince returns
September 6th. Logan is on it. You see the whole transformation from Tamar to mommy Tae-Tae. You see the whole album come together and how we kind of balance the two. After that, The Braxtons Family Values come back.

Kate Middleton urged to let paparrazi photograph her breastfeeding

Breastfeeding advocates are putting pressure on encouraging Kate Middleton to breastfeed the little Royal on the way to promote the practice among moms. All know that celebrities and people in the public light have tremendous influence on the general public.

In response to statistics which show that about 5,700 fewer women breastfed their babies in the UK in 2012-13 compared to the year before, British TV personality Beverley Turner wrote a strongly-worded opinion piece in The Telegraph stating: "We need women with power and influence to get their milky bosoms out and feed smiling in paparazzi pictures."

She added, "as if there wasn’t enough pressure on her already, what we really need is The Duchess of Cambridge to get her Royal orbs out to feed our future monarch. And to be applauded – not seethed at – for doing so."
Miranda Kerr
She wouldn't be the first celebrity to promote breastfeeding either willingly or subconsciously.  Not everyone can look as sexy as model Miranda Kerr did when this tweeted a photo of herself breastfeeding her daughter in between costume changes during a photo shoot. She even posted a more intimate image on her personal website.

Last January, Babble did a post featuring over 10 celebrity women who were caught breastfeeding their babies in public, some by paparazzi, including Gwen Stefani, Maggie Gyenhall, Angelina Jolie and Xena the Warrior Princess actress Lucy Lawless who was photographed (above) for World Breastfeeding Week in 2002.

Singer P!nk  shared a photo of herself breastfeeding via her Instagram account. And although no images have been seen publicly, onlookers spotted Beyonce nursing Baby Blue in NYC.

What do you think? Should Kate Middleton succumb to Turner's suggestion to promote nursing among new mothers or is she pressured enough and shouldn't bow to share something she may not be comfortable doing?

Jessica Simpson welcomes son, Ace Knute

Congratulations to Jessica Simpson and fiance Eric Johnson on the birth of their second child, a son today, June 30 via c-section, US Weekly reports.

The couple named their son Ace Knute. The middle name honors Eric's Swedish paternal grandfather Knute Johnson. 

And you know they had to explain that unique name because of our healthy obsession with the um "different" names celebrities choose to give their children.  But er um some may say that genealogy lesson about the middle name still doesn't explain a first name which some usually associate with a fun nickname folks from the My Three Sons era might've called their buddy but whatever. 

Welcome Ace!

Kate Middleton: The Royal Duchess' due date keeps the bookie business booming

Kate Middleton's impending delivery of her and Prince William's first child is driving up the Bookie biz! 

A popular guess is July 17. Although the gender is not known (or not revealed to be known), many are hedging bets she is having a girl. 

If the baby is a girl, Betters think she will be named Diana after William's mom the late Lady Di with Alexandra, Charlotte and Elizabeth coming in behind that name. 

Meanwhile, the favored name for a boy is George.

Some gamblers are guessing a different time period thinking that the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince may be fudging the due date for privacy reasons because Princess Diana delivered 10 days before her due date.

However, real moms and the medical community know very well that babies don't always arrive on their due date.

Time will tell...and pay! ha!

Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian a $700,000 PUSH gift NOT an Engagement Ring

Kanye West reportedly gave Kim Kardashian a $770,000 black and tiger-striped diamond ring as a Push present after she gave birth to their child, North, last week. Some news outlets mistakenly reported that the ring was an engagement ring and that he proposed to his girlfriend. A source told People magazine that he had not proposed though plans to soon.

Push presents are a fairly recent phenomenon which for the average couple usually entails a spouse or partner giving the woman who spent 40 weeks carrying then delivering their child a gift. Traditionally, it's a pendant, a bracelet or ring and usually jewelry. A bracelet with the name of the baby, mom-to-be, the name or family name add an extra nice touch.

Other times, it is a vacation or some other luxury amenity. Those with loads of cash and want to get fancy with it could get diamond studs with the initials of the baby lasered within them. Flamboyant and extravagant, maybe.

Of course many feminists do not like the trend because to them it is an archaic gesture. They say the concept of push gifts send women back to the days where they are courted and presented with gifts by men. They also believe it is establishing and limiting the value of women to her role as child bearer.

Also many women who have had C-Sections dislike the term because they did not "push" anything out but nonetheless they endured 40 weeks and more undergoing surgery to deliver a baby.

It is after all, another invention of the jewelry industry to bilk new dads out of some cash and one that has gotten great returns as these days more and more first time moms are expecting "push" presents from their spouses.
