Jennifer Aniston appears on the cover of the new issue of OK! magazine and reportedly, she is pregnant by her fiance Justin Theroux. To make matters worse, the tabloid is also reporting that she is set to raise their baby all by herself.
To put matters in a better perspective, a rich person raising a baby alone can be such a hardship — if it’s even true, right? Seriously, if Jennifer is really pregnant, she is going to be just fine. She already has a great support system in place (friends and family) and she has gobs and gobs of money.
Seriously, though. Who is buying all of these stories about Jennifer being pregnant and raising their baby all alone? Whoever you are, you are part of the problem, so please put down the tabloids and back away slowly.
Angelina Jolie covers this week’s edition of the National Enquirer with the reports that she is underweight and collapsed on the set of her new flick. She is reportedly weighing in at only 93 pounds and her fiance Brad Pitt thought she was having a heart attack. Seems legit, no?
What is really more likely is that on December 2nd when the cover photo was taken, she was acting out a movie role. One of which caused her to fall to the ground, perhaps? Either way, we’re guessing that the tabloid is taking things a little too far with this report.
Yes, Angelina has previously had some health problems, but we doubt that she is going to have a heart attack anytime soon. What do you think? Leave your thoughts about this situation in the comments section below.
Russell Brand really wanted to knock up Katy Perry while they were still married. In fact, the pressure that he put on her to get pregnant was one of the reasons why she divorced him. Who knew?!?
Russell and Katy were married in 2010 and he was super eager to get a family started. Despite that, she made it perfectly clear to him that she wasn’t ready to have kids. In effect, she told him that she was busy with her pop music career and wasn’t emotionally ready to become a mother.
In her interview with Marie Claire, she revealed, “I think it was a way of control. I think it was a part of, if I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice – I’d have to be at home more. I really wanted to [have children], but I knew I wasn’t ready for it. It wasn’t like, ‘Hey, let’s have a kid because we’re in love.’”
With regard to having a kid now with her boyfriend John Mayer, she added, “I’m definitely not there yet, and I can’t plan that far in advance. When I decide to have a family, I’ll just want to be mom for a little bit.”
Amanda Bynes covers this week’s edition of In Touch Weekly and inside they claim that she is lucky to be alive. Certainly that could be true, considering all that she has already been through. She has had a serious run-in with mental illness — which landed her in the psych ward for treatment. Prior to that, she has had run-ins with the police and brushes with drug use. All of that is not to even mention her crazy Twitter antics…
After her parents reined her in, she has gotten the help that she needs. She is apparently going to fashion school and is on her way to having her life back on track. Kudos to her for making her comeback. We just can’t wait for the time that she gets back on Twitter and starts blathering on about ugly people. That’s a win-win for everyone, don’t you think?
It feels bad to break someone’s heart. But it feels worse when your former lover deals with their grief by camping out in your bushes so they can peer into your home with a pair of binoculars. Stalkers are scary, and if you don’t know how to deal with them, it might leave you feeling paranoid and anxious all the time.
If you want to know how to handle a stalker, you should turn to people most experienced with avoiding them: celebrities. Their constant media exposure seems to attract unhinged weirdos from all over the country, so famous performers are typically pros at dealing with the unwanted attention of strangers with a warped sense of boundaries. Keira Knightley, star of the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, had to shake off no fewer than six stalkers during the course of her career.
If you’re worried about people who may be invading your life in ways that make you uncomfortable, keep these five tips in mind.
1) Perform A Background Check
How can you know if someone has a history of stalking behavior? It’s not like creepers wear signs that say “I can get crazy clingy, so watch out.”
One surefire method is by performing a criminal background check on your stalking suspect. Since criminal records are 100% available to the public, you can instantly learn if anyone was slapped with a restraining order or has been charged with domestic violence. If you discover through a background check that someone you know has a history of hurting others, you’ll know to stay far away.
2) Lock Your Doors
Just because you have lived in a safe neighborhood for years, doesn’t mean that you should be lulled into a naive sense of security. Earlier this year, J Lo learned the value of a secure home when a stalker waltzed into her house in the Hamptons and stayed there for six days before being caught. Don’t make it any easier to break into your home — deadbolt your door every time you leave the house.
3) Be Wary Of Who Follows You On Social Media
Not all stalkers are bold enough to follow you around in person. Some will simply gather details about your habits and whereabouts by checking out your Facebook or Twitter account. On social media, as the Instant Checkmate blog referenced, oversharing caused problems for several A-listers in 2008 and 2009 when they were robbed by “The Bling Ring.” This group of teenagers followed celebs like Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Lindsay Lohan on Facebook to track their habits. When the stars weren’t home, the young burglars broke into the celebrities’ houses and made off with their jewels, cash, and designer clothes.
Protect yourself from people who do reconnaissance on you through social media by limiting the amount of personal info you reveal online and only friending people you know in real life.
4) Stop Problems Before They Start
It doesn’t hurt to let your stalker know, in no uncertain terms, that their weird advances are not appreciated. According to private eye Mark Chinapen, who has helped many stars ward off stalkers, simply confronting a stalker and telling them to stop their behavior usually gets them to back off.
5) Get The Police Involved
Remember, stalking is a serious matter. If you feel that someone is harassing you, you should immediately inform the police just so they have a record of the incident on file. If your stalker is persistent, or worrying you, you could contact the authorities to get a temporary restraining order or Order of Protection. After a stalker broke into the home of pop singer Rihanna, she was granted a 100-yard temporary restraining order against the man. While the force of law should be enough to keep stalkers away, be aware that many have no qualms about violating a restraining order. A restraining order on file is no replacement for your own due diligence against the weirdos of the world.
The holidays might be over, but winter is still in full-swing. Cold temperatures and shorter days make it tougher to stay active, but keeping your routine of cardio exercises in the winter can help you stay healthy—physically and emotionally.
Do you still need more motivation to get out of your warm living room and out into the cold? Well lace up your running shoes, fill up your BlenderBottle®, and start putting foot to pavement! Here are 4 of Shape‘s top reasons to embrace cold weather cardio exercises:
1.It’s the ideal weather for running.
It might not be fun, huffing and puffing in below-freezing temperatures. But the fact is that the colder the weather, the less the heat stress on your body. Running naturally warms you up, so if you can get through the initial shock, you’ll warm up quickly… just keep moving!
2.Running is a great tool for preventing winter weight gain.
We’ve all fallen victim to winter weight gain. When it’s cold outside, nothing sounds more appealing than curling up in front of the fire. You can still do that—just balance it out with some cardio exercises. The only thing that feels better than a relaxing evening inside is a relaxing evening inside after a nice run.
3.Running can help prevent SAD.
As the days become darker and colder, lots of people suffer from Seasonal Affect Disorder (SAD). Studies show that running in the cold produces more than just happy thoughts of spring weather. It releases hormones in the body that combat depression, create positive mood states, and give you more energy.
4.Running will keep your metabolism going strong.
Ever feel like hibernating through January and February? We might not sleep through the winter like bears, but our bodies are programmed to operate with a slower metabolism. Staying active with a steady routine of winter cardio exercises actually “tricks” your body into keeping a higher metabolism rate.
Finally, don’t forget to warm up properly before you head out into the cold! Exercising in the cold has lots of benefits, but the cold shock can put a lot of strain on your muscles.
How do you stay active when the weather gets colder and less welcoming?

Music mogul Simon Cowell is expecting his first child with Lauren Silverman, but he doesn’t think that should get in the way of his nicotine habit!
In most impromptu photos and video interviews, Simon is usually seen puffing on a cancer stick. Now that he is getting ready to welcome a baby into the world, he doesn’t feel that should stop him from enjoying his cigarettes.
He said that when the baby arrives, he will have a room designated in their house as the smoking room. He revealed, “There are a lot of boring things that happen when you have a baby. [You have to get rid of] sharp edges, cigarettes, alcohol … then there’s [baby-proofing] the toilet. But I’ll have a smoking room!”
He went on to say, “I was just texting with [One Direction's] Louis Tomlinson last night because his mom is pregnant and is going to have the baby the same time as Lauren. So it’s like, who is going to go first? I think I am going to win.”
It seems rather selfish to continue smoking with a baby on the way, doesn’t it? What do you think? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
The e cigarette review site whichecigarette.com read this article and is willing to offer Simon a brand new starter kit.
