Tori Spelling Lied About Baby Weight Loss

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: D-List, Television, Pregnancies,

Tori SpellingTori Spelling lied about her weight loss after giving birth.

The 40-year-old actress has admitted she wasn't honest about how she shed the pounds following the birth of her son Finn in August 2012, revealing she severely restricted her food intake rather than taking up exercise like she previously claimed. In April, Tori said she had taken up low-impact cardio and a healthy diet of fish and vegetables, but in her new autobiography Spelling It Like It Is, she wrote, "I really don't exercise much, period. So I took off my weight the old-fashioned way. I like to call it the 'Just Keep Your F**king Mouth Shut and Eat Air' diet. It's all the rage. My publicist had given me clear instructions about what to say about my weight loss. Women didn't want to know that I had lost weight through dieting, not exercising. I didn't want to be the a**hole who didn't work for it. So I said that I swam. It was sort of a bad choice. I can't do much more than a doggy paddle."

The actress - who also has son Liam, six, and daughters Stella, five, Hattie, two, with husband Dean McDermott - previously said she had taken up swimming to help lose weight and had substituted her husband's home cooked meals with lean sushi.

January Jones Eats Her Own Placenta

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Celebrity Babies,

January Jones with her son XanderJanuary Jones is eating her own placenta.

The Mad Men actress gave birth to son Xander last September and admits she has been dining on the ephemeral organ - which connects a baby to their mother while they are in the womb and delivered after the birth - in capsule form ever since.

"I have a great doula who makes sure I'm eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation. Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins. It's something I was very hesitant about, but we're the only mammals who don't ingest our own placentas. It's not witch-crafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!" she told People when asked how she copes with being a working mother.

January - who refuses to name Xander's father - went back to work soon after her son's birth but was grateful he was able to come to the Mad Men set with her: "I think I went back to set six or seven weeks after, so he was really little. I had the baby and the baby nurse in their own room so I could go back and feed him every two hours. If I felt like he needed me, or if he needed to eat, or even if I just needed a squeeze because I was having separation issues, I would go back and see him. It was such a blessing that I wasn't separated from him."

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne used to go days without eating. The 26-year-old star -- who lost over 50lbs in 18 months -- tried every possible way to lose weight without success, before settling on her current healthy eating and exercise plan.

"I've done everything - meal deliveries, milkshakes, diet pills, the juice diet, the maple syrup diet, even not eating at all. I'd do it for three days and if I didn't feel a drastic change, I'd be like, 'F**k this, I'm not doing that anymore.'"

Though she is much happier with her figure, Kelly admits she still sees a therapist about her mental attitudes to her weight and self-image. "I'm in therapy - it's helped me in all areas of my life. There's a huge mental factor in losing weight. It's not just about getting on the treadmill. It's about doing things to make you feel good about yourself," she admitted in an interview with Britain's Cosmopolitan

Kelly also relies on the support of her mother, TV star Sharon Osbourne, 58, who famously transformed her own shape after having a gastric band fitted: "Mum's been so supportive. She understood because she's been there. When you're a fat girl in Hollywood, it's not fun. You never get looked at the way skinny girls do."


Hilary Duff Regrets Her Skinny Phase

An extremely thin Hilary DuffHilary Duff regrets how thin she allowed herself to get when she was a teenager. The singer and actress paid too much attention to what other people thought of her appearance when she was younger and forced herself to keep to a strict diet of steamed vegetables and grilled chicken, even though she knew she was too thin.

"I got pretty skinny when I was between 17 and 19. At the time I was starting to become aware of what people said about me and how I looked in pictures. I regret it because I don't think I was happy then," she told Health magazine.

Hilary, now 23, said she was going through a difficult period at the time - dealing with her break-up from then boyfriend rocker Joel Madden - but eventually her now-husband, ice hockey player Mike Comrie, helped get her back on track. "It really helps to have a partner that loves everything about you and makes you feel really beautiful."

Renee Zellweger Swears By Carolina Herrera

Renee Zellweger in Harper's BazaarA-list actress always chooses gowns by the same designer for red carpet events.

The Oscar-winning actress admits that when it comes to big events, she always goes to Carolina Herrera, as she trusts the “classic” tailoring of the Venezuelan-born fashion designer.

“It’s classic. It’s beautifully tailored. No surprises.”

However, the 41-year-old star revealed she doesn’t select pieces by Carolina Herrera only for their aesthetic charm, but because she would feel too guilty if she had a whole host of designers creating pieces she would never end up wearing: “I can’t have 90 people making things for me that I might not wear. To have so many people expend so much effort potentially for nothing - I wouldn’t sleep at night.”

The slim star - who in the past has been known to stick to a strict macrobiotic diet of fish and vegetables - has reportedly put on 10lbs in recent months after boyfriend told her he likes women with “a little more meat on their bones.”

“She banned dairy a long time ago but Bradley loves ice cream and cheese and Renee’s started to join in. Potatoes are back on the menu, too. Bradley’s convinced her to loosen up and she’s loving it. Bradley’s been very vocal in telling her he’s more attracted to women with a little meat on their bones and Renee’s doing her best to oblige him.”


Elizabeth Hurley Reveals More Controversial Dieting Techniques

Elizabeth HurleyWant to look like ? The model-turned-actress claims that not eating breakfast keeps her slim.

The 45-year-old beauty has confessed she starts the day with mugs of hot water, followed later by a snack of oat cakes and an occasional espresso. After returning from holiday in France, she Tweeted, “My diet survived the onslaught of phenomenal vacation food-doctors disagree, but I swear by almost nothing for breakfast for adults. Mugs of hot water first thing, maybe an espresso and a few oat cakes mid morning.”

Earlier she had posted, “Another workout in the gym with the Australian and an awful lot of hot water. Sick of it now.”

Elizabeth, who is married to businessman Arun Nayar and has eight-year-old son Damian from a previous relationship, has been blasted by nutrition experts for her admission. “If you think that some hot water and a coffee is all you need to look like Liz Hurley, then I’m afraid you are wrong. This is not the breakfast that I would recommend to people with regular lives. First thing in the morning your body has not had any food or fuel all night and needs something to kick-start your day. The coffee will give you a kick but you will be relying on your body’s reserves and by mid-morning you would be more likely to snack on something unhealthy like a muffin,” said leading nutritionist Carina Norris.
