Zosia Mamet Admits to Serious Eating Disorder

Screen shot 2014-08-13 at 9.00.35 AM

In the September issue of Glamour, “Girls” star Zosia Mamet reveals she had and still deals with a serious eating disorder that has affected her whole life.

“I was told I was fat for the first time when I was eight.  I’m not fat; I’m never been fat.  But ever since then, there has been a monster in my brain that tells me I am – that convinces me my clothes don’t fit or that I’ve eating too much.”

The 26-year-old went on to say, “At times it has forced me to starves myself, to run extra miles, to abuse my body.”

It wasn’t until her dad made her get help that she realized her disease was affecting everyone, not just her.

“He came home one night from a party, took me by the shoulders, and said, ‘You’re not allowed to die’.  It was the first time I realized this wasn’t all about me.  I didn’t care if I died, but my family did.  That’s the thing about these kind of disorders: They’re consuming; they make you egocentric; they’re all you can see.”

Even though she has been to treatment, it is still a daily battle for her;

“Today I am at a healthy weight, though I realize that my obsession will always be with me in some way.”

New Trend: Eyelash Tinting Can Cause Blindness!

eye-lash-Tinting

Staying on top of the latest beauty trends can be a little tough, it seems like there is always something new; one week it’s eyelash extensions, now its eyelash tinting.

If your not hip to what eyelash tinting is, don’t feel bad. This is one beauty trend you may want to skip out on.  It can have some serious dangers. It sent one woman to the ER, thinking she may never be able to see again.

What exactly is Eyelash tinting?

Eyelash tinting is the process in which your eyelashes are dyed. It’s basically like having permanent mascara on. Dyed lashes enhance your eyes making them appear more noticeable.

However, the FDA states tha There is no dye on the market that is approved for eyelashes.  Putting any type of dye near, or around the eyes can cause blindness! Chemical burns can also occur on the skin around the eyes due to this tinting process. Hair follicles may not grow back as well, and you are at high risk of getting  a bacteria infection.

Dr. Oz, a well-known Surgeon and TV host says no one should ever get near your eyeballs with any dyes, tweezers or glue.

Both, eyelash tinting and eyelash extensions are illegal in New York and six other states, yet salons there still provide those services.

Here’s one womans horror story when her eyes were accidentally glued shut by a salon;

 “It was absolutely terrifying, I thought I was going blind. It was getting worse and worse–by Monday I couldn’t see anything and I couldn’t open my eyes at all. People said I looked like a monster. My eyes were really itchy and I looked like I had been crying.”

It took steroids, antibiotics and two weeks for this women to heal from this horror eyelash tinting experience.

A lot of women are going to great lengths to enhance their eyes with both eyelash tinting, and eyelash extensions without first considering the consequences.  Warning ladies! Ask yourselves, is it worth possibly compromising your eyesight over?

 

 

 

Alyssa Milano Refuses To Step On Scale While Pregnant

alyssa-milano-1-300x400

Alyssa Milano steps on the cover of Fit Pregnancy‘s August issue looking fabulous while pregnant.  The actress is pregnant with her second child, saying “it is such a cool thing to experience.”

While some stars find it easy to be pregnant in the public eye,  Alyssa is one of them that finds it to be difficult.

“A female body is not made to look good in a bikini.  It’s made to give birth and have a baby and be a cozy companion for it afterward. And for my body, that meant putting on a lot of weight.”

Of course, being pregnant means eating more, but Alyssa chooses to go the healthy way and not indulge in junk food.

 “I didn’t indulge in fast food or junk food, so I knew it was a healthy weight. I just realized: This is what my body needs to do to have a healthy baby.”

She continued,

“We don’t get hungry when we’re pregnant for no reason. You’re making a skeletal system. You’re making organs. I refuse to look at the scale. I didn’t look at the scale with Milo until the day I gave birth. It’s funny, my file was open at my appointment yesterday and there was a big Post-it note that said, ‘She does not want to know her weight.'”

Do you think a pregnant woman should be concerned about her weight? We would love to hear your thoughts, sound off below.

The video showcases herself and others becoming vulnerable and showing the world women in their natural state.

“Put your make-up on
Get your nails done
Curl your hair
Run the extra mile
Keep it slim so they like you, do they like you?

Get your sexy on
Don’t be shy, girl
Take it off
This is what you want, to belong, so they like you
Do you like you?

 You don’t have to try so hard

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing”

Screen shot 2014-07-21 at 8.35.32 AM

It’s rare that you hear world-known models being fired for being overweight but that is exactly what happened to 28-year-old Chrissy Teigen.

The Sports Illustrated model revealed in an interview with DuJour that she was fired for being “too fat” from none other than Forever 21.

“I was actually fired from a job.  Forever 21, they booked me directly when I was much younger.  I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo.  They shot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I’m sitting in the makeup chair, and they say, ‘You need to leave right now. They just said that you are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken.’ And I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly you’re the worst.”

Chrissy even shared the horrible news on Twitter.  A fan tweeted her, “saw something on E news that Forever 21 fired you for being fat?”

John Legends soon to be wife replied, “yep they suck and I hate them.”

Wow… But doesn’t Forever21 sell all sizes, even a  plus size line?

It seems like all celebrities do what they can to stay in shape and have a thin frame.  I mean… have you ever heard of a celebrity who doesn’t hit up the gym?  Well if you haven’t, now you have.

The former Hills star Lauren Conrad revealed to People Magazine that she doesn’t hit up the gym; in fact, she doesn’t even like going to the gym.

“I’m not a huge fan of the gym, to be honest.  When I have to go to the gym and put an hour in, I’m just staring at the clock.”

Instead she prefers going outside in the fresh air,

“I just like getting out, like going on a hike, going on the kayaks, going for a run on the beach.”

Conrad is set to marry law student William Tell, but just because she is getting married, don’t expect her to go on some major diet.

“I really love food… I’m not good at dieting.  I try to make smart choices but eat a little bit less.”

Well, there’s no doubt that Conrad has a naturally fabulous body, and that will only benefit her for her fabulous wedding!

Adrienne Bailon Gets Her Butt Tattoo Removed

Screen shot 2014-07-17 at 8.39.18 AM

Adrienne Bailon has been pretty open about how she regrets getting one tattoo in particular, on her butt. And Finally she is getting it removed! Lawd, I know she is happy to say bye-bye to her butt tattoo that says her x-boyfriend’s name “Rob Kardashian” (I know her new boyfriend is happy too.)

The Real talk show host once dated Rob Kardashian in a very public relationship it 2007. Their love for each other was so “real” that they both got matching tattoo’s of each others names (except Adrienne’s name is on Rob’s ribs). But, when the couple split 5 years ago in 2009, their tattoo’s have lived on way past their love expiration date .

Adrienne has tried to remove the tattoo before but tattoo removals are not as easy and are very painful. She explains;

 

“I’ve had really painful experiences before, doing laser tattoo removal. Really smelling like flesh burning. Ahh!..For me getting the tattoo was painful, and living for the last past six years with somebodies name on your body is a little weird, and a bit more painful to have to like you know (one day) explain that to my kids..”

 

She is determined to get the tattoo removed for good but in a safe way, trying a new laser procedure  called “Picosure” that will take 5 sessions.

“PicoSure is an FDA-cleared laser tattoo removal technology that—in contrast to earlier methods—uses much shorter light pulses to break up ink pigments with less residual heating of surrounding tissue. Also used to treat age spots and pigmented skin.”

Tattoo removals can cost anywhere from $75-$5,000 depending on the location of the tattoo, size, ink color, and how many sessions it take to be completely removed.

Justin Bieber Is Back In The Gym & Warns #DontBeScared

20140716-131410-47650515.jpg

Justin Bieber has been flexing on Instagram but warns his Beliebers #DontBeScared. He recently has been sporting his shirtless self around the Hollywood scene, exuding much confidence with his defined set of abs and pecks on display.

Justin likes to get a good workout in, in the gym but also outdoors. If he’s not doing crunches or doing bicep curls with his trainer @thepatricknilsson, he’s hiking the canyons or skateboarding around for the Paparazzi to see.

A 1 hour session on a skateboard can burn up to 300 calories, hiking 200 calories or more (depending on the incline & speed.)

Didn’t it seem like just yesterday when Justin was a little boy with a fish bowl hair cut and no tattoos? lol. Boy they sure do grow up fast!

Tyra Banks Thinks Beauty Will Be Perceived Differently In The Future

Screen shot 2014-07-15 at 6.51.02 AM

Tyra Banks is no stranger when it comes to being  ridiculed by the press and media for her looks, but that has never kept her from saying how she really feels. In 2007, the 40-year-old gained 30-pounds after retiring from her model career.  Tyra spoke out about the backlash she was receiving from the media at that time and even joined the “Fat Fight Talk” Campaign, which helps women and men reduce self-damaging words to themselves.

In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, the retired model talked about her perception of beauty and how the general definition of it will change in the future.  She says;

“In general, I believe, traditional beauty will be less valuable – and more uniqueness will be heralded.  People will be vying for that cutting-edge, distinct look in the way that today celebs reach for baby names that defy convention.”

She specifically states 10 predictions she see’s happening in the future, and one of them is getting plastic surgery will be as easy as walking into a drugstore.  But instead of the “cookie-cutter” look people crave now-a-days, everyone will be begging for a more unique and individual look.

Another prediction she has is that:

“Global warming will threaten our crops so natural food will be scarce. Hourglass, curvy bodies will be the aspirational beauty standard, representing that those women have access to bounties of fulfilling yet healthy food, which means they are affluent.”

She also says that since beauty will be so easy to attain, there will be no more prejudice on looks, but rather on your socioeconomic standing, and that if you do not desire plastic surgery, physical attributes (ex. certain shaped eyebrows and contoured cheekbones), will be accessible by “beauty ingestibles” such as active waters.

Even though Tyra made her living through modeling, she believes that robots and aviators will take the place of models in the future to sell products.

“Models will be as relevant as a horse and buggy.”
