Eva Mendes talks babies and motherhood on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’

eva mendes ellen degeneres

Eva Mendes just welcomed her first child, a baby girl named Esmeralda, with boyfriend Ryan Gosling a couple of months ago and she’s finally talking about the whole thing – pregnancy and her reasons for being so secretive, motherhood, baby weight and the like – during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

Here’s what she had to say (via US Weekly):

“I think just early on, we decided it’s going to be so hard for her to have privacy,” Mendes said. “We thought this is the first opportunity we can give her to protect her and so that I had a nice calm pregnancy, which I did.”

While Mendes’ pregnancy was calm, her first two months of motherhood have been less relaxing. Asked whether baby Esmeralda, who was born on Sept. 12, is sleeping through the night, the Fast and Furious alum exclaimed, “No! No, God no. She’s 2 months! You know, we’re getting the hang of it, the sleeping thing, but yeah I’m exhausted and it’s the best.”

“Really, I’m so incredibly tired,” she added. “I thought I was tired before at times, but no. Nothing like this, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

“The whole bounce back thing… I’m like… ‘Oh gosh. Ease up. It’s okay. We don’t have to…’ you know?” she explained. “I mean, eventually maybe, but certainly not in a couple weeks.”

Despite her relaxed demeanor, Mendes already looks slim and gorgeous, which she attributes to a natural action, rather than hitting the gym for hours on end.

“I’m, you know, breastfeeding,” she spilled. “I’ve always heard it. It really does help to shrink your uterus back to normal size. It does! I know it’s a really weird thing to say, but it does. It’s the best. So it’s breastfeeding is really helping and then obviously you want to be healthy for the baby because she’s eating kind of what I’m eating, so you want to make good choices.”

Well, that’s all very exciting. I’ve never really understood the fascination with celebrity moms/how they’re raising their babies. Women have kids all the time – just because you happen to be rich doesn’t make the process any different, except that you can afford to hire help so that you can actually sleep and not stay up all night with a screaming infant. Happy they’re happy, though – I sound sarcastic, but I do mean it!

Never cross Taylor Swift or you’ll be sorry

Taylor Swift has been performing for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for a couple of years now and while some models didn’t think she was really right for the job since she’s isn’t conventionally sexy, she’s still there and giving a big f-you to anyone who doesn’t like her.

In fact, according to some reports, Taylor got back at her greatest detractor, model Jessica Hart, who said publicly that Taylor “didn’t fit” in with the Victoria’s Secret crowd, but “bless her heart”, anyway. Taylor apparently got Hart fired from this year’s Fashion Show in the ultimate act of revenge.

From The New York Daily News:

“It’s not been announced that Jessica is not walking, but it was a direct request from Taylor that this be the case if she were to go,” one well-placed Victoria’s Secret insider tells Confidenti@l. “No one can know that Taylor requested Ms. Hart not be in the show. They want to keep that under wraps, but that’s the facts.”

Our source says that behind closed doors the singer gave Hart a Swift kick in her perfectly sculpted butt. Taylor had her team remove the Australian stunner from the spectacular show during talks that again landed Swift the coveted gig at the event.

Huh. Victoria’s Secret have denied this, of course, and said that Hart is still working with them and did a campaign with them a few months back. Go figure. I don’t think this is true at all, of course, but it is a juicy little story, in any case. LOL to Taylor a) being so vengeful and b) so powerful. Riiiiight.

Bill Cosby is being sued for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old

bill cosby

Finally, one of Bill Cosby‘s alleged victims – and I say alleged not because I don’t believe that he’s guilty, but because legally a suspect is “innocent until proven guilty”, which is bullshit – has come forward and has pressed charges against him for abuse she experienced at Cosby’s hands in 1974… when she was only 15 years old.

Via The Associated Press:

Bill Cosby was sued Tuesday by a Southern California woman who claims the comedian molested her in a bedroom of the Playboy Mansion around 1974 when she was 15 years old.

Judy Huth’s sexual battery lawsuit does not specify how much she is seeking from Cosby, who has in recent weeks faced renewed accusations that he drugged and sexually assaulted more than a dozen women for many years.

Huth’s lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, however, is the first time a woman has gone public claiming Cosby abused her when she was underage. A second woman told Pittsburgh television station KDKA last month that Cosby drugged her to the point of unconsciousness in the 1980s when she was 15.

Huth’s lawsuit states that she and a 16-year-old friend first met Cosby at a Los Angeles-area film shoot and the comedian gave the girls drinks a week later at a tennis club.

The lawsuit states that Cosby took them to the Playboy Mansion after several drinks, and told the teenagers to lie and say they were 19 years old if asked. Her lawsuit states Cosby forced her to perform a sex act on him with her hand.

Dear God. Again, here’s yet another victim coming forward – and the first example of the fact that age was no issue to this pervert. I’m sure more and more of these stories will continue to come out, but again, I don’t think anything will come of it. When you have people like Jill Scott coming out and saying shit like that people are trying to destroy this wonderful man’s legacy, that goes to show that people are brainwashed into thinking he’s incapable of being so disgusting.

Lady Gaga reveals she was raped as a teenager

lady gaga howard stern

I feel like Lady Gaga has talked about being raped as a teenager before, but I must have been imagining that because she apparently made the revelation during an interview with Howard Stern this week, and everyone is going crazy. It’s messed up that she was raped, but people seem to be more interested in the fact that her abuser may have been none other than Dr. Luke.

“I wrote a song called ‘Swine.’ The song is about rape. The song is about demoralization. The song is about rage and fury and passion, and I had a lot of pain that I wanted to release. I said to myself, ‘I want to sing this song while I’m ripping hard on a drum kit, and then I want to get on a mechanical bull’—which is probably one of the most demoralizing things that you can put a female on in her underwear—’and I want this chick to throw up on me in front of the world so that I can tell them, you know what? You could never, ever degrade as much as I could degrade myself, and look how beautiful it is when I do.’”

“I went through some horrific things that I’m able to laugh [at] now, because I’ve gone through a lot of mental and physical therapy and emotional therapy to heal over the years. My music’s been wonderful for me. But, you know, I was a shell of my former self at one point. I was not myself. To be fair, I was about 19. I went to Catholic school and then all this crazy stuff happened, and I was going, ‘Oh, is this just the way adults are?’…I was very naïve.”

“You keep alluding to…were you raped by a record producer?” Stern asked.

“I don’t…I don’t want to…” Gaga replied. “Happy times! Let’s talk about happy things!”

Oh, shit. It’s Kesha‘s lawyer, Mark Geragos, that claims Dr. Luke is the record producer behind Gaga’s rape (and of course behind Kesha’s, as well), but both Dr. Luke’s and Gaga’s publicist are trying to clear up that shit storm real quick:

“Mark Geragos’ statement is completely false and defamatory,” a rep for Dr. Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, said in a statement obtained by E! News Tuesday. “Luke met Lady Gaga twice for less than half an hour total in those two meetings combined. He has never been alone with her and never touched her. Neither meeting was in that time frame reported.”

Gaga’s publicist tells E! News: “This ridiculous, manufactured link between Lady Gaga and the Kesha-Dr. Luke lawsuit is utterly incomprehensible. This simply isn’t true and how dare someone take advantage of such a sensitive matter.”

“I went through some horrific things that I’m able to laugh [at] now, because I’ve gone through a lot of mental and physical therapy and emotional therapy to heal over the years,” Gaga told Stern this morning. “My music’s been wonderful for me. But, you know, I was a shell of my former self at one point [after the assault]. I was not myself. To be fair, I was about 19. I went to Catholic school and then all this crazy stuff happened, and I was going, ‘Oh, is this just the way adults are?’…I was very naïve.”

Oh man, this is such a mess all around. Was it Dr. Luke? I mean, I wouldn’t be surprised, but who knows. If Gaga doesn’t want us to know, it’s not our business.

Kourtney Kardashian does the whole naked pregnancy photo shoot thing (again)

kourtney kardashian

I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time Kourtney Kardashian has stripped down in front of a camera before giving birth and, if she decides to let Scott Disick put another one in her in future, I’m sure she’ll do it again. It’s the Kardashian way – no shame in that. This time, some magazine called DuJour got the honours (?), as well as an interview.

The interview is a bit shit, of course, and didn’t really tell us anything we didn’t already know. Kourtney loves walking around naked and doesn’t think her body is anything to be ashamed of, so she’s comfortable letting everybody see all her bits… because why not? Sure, good for her. However, she says she wouldn’t do any nude shoots if she wasn’t pregnant, because the whole thing that’s interesting about this nudity is the baby growing inside of her… or whatever. But how does she hope these photos will be received?

How do you hope people will react to these pictures?

I don’t know. It’s what a woman’s body is made to do, so I hope it’s maybe seen as something that’s artistic. This was something that initially I did for myself just to capture the moment in my life, but these photos are beautiful and I’m happy to share them. And I like how raw they are. It’s my body: I’m not trying to impress anybody or be something that I’m not. But in general, I don’t really care that much about what people think. It doesn’t rule my world. I did this because I wanted to and it made me happy.

I’m trying super hard not to raise my eyebrow at the comment about how a woman’s body is apparently “made to” make babies, because HELLO, 19th century thinking, but whatevs. The woman loves having kids, so I’m gonna let her roll with that. I also enjoy (and believe) that she doesn’t actually give a single shit whether or not people like this, and I totally think she is doing it cos she felt like it, and that’s alright by me. Khloe has always been my favourite Kardashian just because of Kourtney’s bitch factor, but I have to admit, she is pretty likeable (sometimes).

The other two pics are behind the cut!

Gwen Stefani releases ‘Spark the Fire’ video

gwen stefani

Gwen Stefani is getting back in the swing of things as far as her music career goes, and her first offering to the world in several years is this: ‘Spark the Fire‘, a semi-shitty rap/pop whatever-the-hell you’d call it that’s… not very good. I mean, even Fergie’s comeback single is better than this shit.

I love Gwen and think she’s absolutely divinely beautiful, but I feel like she probably needs to give the music a rest. Your mileage may vary, of course… I’ll let you decide for yourself:
