Come on, you guys know I love it. I love it when a lady wants short hair and goes for it, I don’t need to go over it again. But I love it on Tia Mowry in particular. Ever since I told you guys about all those people who said that her baby is ugly, I’ve had a big ol’ soft spot for this girl, and I just think she looks radiant here, don’t you?
Turns out she didn’t quite think the same though:
“I cried! I’m just going to be honest with you, I definitely cried. I really wasn’t expecting the shock value. A lot of people ask me, ‘What advice would you give to women who want to chop it off?’ I said, ‘Don’t think about it because if you do you won’t do it.’ But it’s very liberating and it definitely saves time.”
In the same interview, she also talked about how she didn’t pull a Beyonce after the birth of her son:
“I was shocked that my belly didn’t completely go down. I was so used to seeing so many women in the media flaunting their bodies 4 weeks after having a baby — and kudos to those who have genes that they can get right back into shape 2 weeks, 4 weeks after having a baby. But that never happened to me, and I remember going to my doctor asking why. ‘Why didn’t my belly go down right away?’ And she was like, ‘Tia, it takes up to a year.’ So, I wish somebody would have been honest with me about that.”
But she did pull a Jessica Simpson:
“And it’s okay for you to not have to be in the gym every single day to try to lose your weight,” she added. “Because for me personally, I like to spend most of my time with my child [to] savor these moments because they’re not a little tiny baby forever.”
Is it ok if I go ahead and put this girl on the list of people to love forever? Because I think I’m going to put her on the list. What do you guys think?

Here’s an example of a comment found somewhere on the internet:
“You know I’m right, that baby is ugly. That’s why you’re all hyped up about it. Say what you want and don’t act like ugly babies don’t exist. It is what it is. Don’t be at mad me. And just b/c I said the baby was ugly, it doesn’t mean he’ll always be that way. Who knows, maybe the kid will eventually grow into his head.”
Comments like these are made frequently enough that Tia has heard about them, which indicates that a good amount of people are trash talking this kid. But does Tia Mowry appreciate that? No, she most certainly does not:
Appearing on Live From E! today, the Tia & Tamera star blasted online critics who have written what she said were “disgusting” comments about her 1-year-old son, Cree Taylor Hardrict, online.
“I really don’t understand why people feel the need to belittle a child, someone who doesn’t even have a voice yet to express themselves,” said Mowry. “I just think it’s disgusting—disgusting that we live in a society that focuses on looks.”
Mowry told the panel that she feels sympathy as well for fellow celebrities like Jessica Simpson who get so much flak for their post-pregnancy bodies.
“Guys, let’s get women time to get back to themselves. We just brought life into this world,” she added. “Some women bounce back quickly and some don’t…I’m not gonna be at a gym five days a week. I wanna spend time with my son.”
Of course, I totally agree with Tia here. Maybe in a few years, her little boy will start trying out new haircuts and clothing styles, maybe he’ll start to learn about accessorizing and personal styling, but right now I’m pretty sure he’s busy focusing on growing teeth and trying out solid food and learning how to talk so he can address the haters that don’t have anything better to do than to start discussions about someone’s baby’s attractiveness.
Seriously, he’s a baby. He’s a little one-year-old baby with chubby little cheeks and floppy baby hair and big baby eyes. He’s not Kelly Osbourne who made a dumb choice to bleach her eyebrows or Kim Kardashian who constantly offers up a wide variety of ass angles for us. You guys, he probably doesn’t even know who Kim Kardashian is. Do you really think he’s fair game?
Also, look at his little face!
How sweet is that face?

“I know that there are people out there who say that there is nothing sexy about being pregnant. Then there are some people who embrace the sexuality. I feel empowered; I feel sexy.”
Empowered, yes. Sexy? Fuck no. I don’t know how many of you guys have been pregnant in the past, but when I was pregnant, sexy was the last possible thing I felt. And I felt a lot. I felt bloating, cramping, swelling, the occasional Braxton-Hicks contractions, skin that was supposed to be glowing, but instead broke out like I was thirteen again, and oh, the best parts: sciatica, fat, sore feet and vomiting.
It’s just that I’m envious as shit is all.

The Sister, Sister star, 29, married her longtime boyfriend, actor Cory Hardrict, on Sunday at the Four Seasons in Santa Barbara.
Sister Tamera was the maid of honor.
I kind of love the Mowrys. I mean, they’re boring as all hell, but it’s refreshing to see child stars grow up and not be drug addicts. These two seem really grounded and continue to be positive role models. Good for them.

They got invited to an Emmy lounge.
What are they even doing these days? I feel like each of them should have like 4 kids by now. Have they done anything since Sister Sister? And wasn’t that like 25 years ago?
See, this is how the Olsen twins would have turned out if they weren’t anorexic and drug-addicted: irrelevant. So the next time you try to tell Mary-Kate to eat something, you remember this. You remember what became of those healthy, well-adjusted Mowry girls.
