Pregnant man's thunder stolen by Chaz Bono

Pregnant man Thomas Beatie reckons he should have been picked for this season’s “Dancing with the Stars”, but that he had his offer stolen off him by Chaz Bono – an American transgender advocate.

“Chaz Bono stole my thunder,” he tells TMZ, adding that he had contacted the show’s casting team a few months back in the hope of landing a spot, but never got a call back. But when DWTS announced they would be taking on Bono, Beatie decided it was time to speak up agaist the injustice.

Now, Beatie claims he was not picked because the transgender quota had already been filled and not because he has done nothing in the least bit extraordinary with his life other than get his breasts removed and get pregnant.

Chaz Bono stole Thomas Beatie's thunder

He says he understands why producers would not cast two famous transgender people side by side, but says he is pretty disappointed nonetheless. “I wanted to try my new body out. I’m an athlete and I know I would have excelled.”

Chaz Bono is the only child famous musical duo Sonny and Cher had together. Born Chastity Sun Bono, Chaz came out as a lesbian in 1995, not much to the initial appreciation of her gay icon mother. But Cher soon came around, and even started getting involved in LGBT rights campaign work alongside her daughter. Chaz’s father, however, was less tolerant, especially after he became a Republican Congressman.

In 2008, Bono began undergoing physical and social gender transition from female to male. The legal transition was completed in 2010. In the meanwhile, Chaz had a film made documenting his journey, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and the rights to which were later acquired by Oprah.

[adsense]In the same year as Bono began his transition, Thomas Beatie became the first “legally” pregnant man. Beatie, who had undergone the transition years previously but chose to retain his female reproductive organs, decided to have a child after it transpired that his wife Nancy was infertile. Since 2008, he has given birth to three children – two boy and a girl.

In 2010, Beatie was joined by Scott Moore – another transgender man to give birth.

Kelly Rowland hails Beyonce motherhood as strippers take over the world

Beyonce Knowles and her girls may think that they run the world but the big question now is how she’ll manage to pin down world leadership while breast-feeding her newborn lamb.

The pop mannequin is expecting her first born child which she hoped to do by the age of 30 (ambitious huh?) and rap star / producer / dullard husband Jay-Z has duly obliged her.

Having been the subject of false pregnancy rumours earlier this year Beyonce finally announced the official news on August 28th while attending the VMA Awards, with fellow pop wastrels such as Kelly Rowland gushing in the media about what a great mother Knowles will make.

It's official - Beyonce has irritable bowel syndrome.

“I have known for quite a while, and she’s happy, and Jay is happy, and that’s all that counts.”

“I think she’ll be an incredible mother, because she’s always been motherly,” she said. “I think that she takes after so many traits from her mother. I just think it’s going to be so natural for her. It’s natural for her now!”

[adsense]With such intelligent and well founded commentary as that, perhaps the running of the world will be in safe hands if Rowland deputises, while Beyonce changes nappies and tries to look her best with a rampant sprog gumming on her teet, although if she’s anything like Victoria Beckham she’ll dump the kid on someone else at five weeks of age in order to focus on eating disorders in a bid to look good for some award ceremony or fashion show of no consequence.

The hypocrisy surrounding mothering and releasing a song which intimates that women run the world is astounding. Certainly the women harried into prostitution or sold as sex slaves in third world or eastern European countries would argue that they don’t run the world, as would rape victims and those trapped in exploitative industries, and with Beyonce dressed and dancing like a stripper in her video there is some question as to whether girls do run the world or not.

Is it these girls that run the world Beyonce?

Its certainly been a man’s world until now and they’ve only managed to make a mess of it.

As a romantic notion the song is great; it’s a rallying call for women who have been oppressed or down-trodden in some way, a chance for them to feel empowered and find a modicum of bravery in their crushed hearts, but Beyonce the hypocrite isn’t that role model. Anyone who sells themselves with sex is not empowering women, they are degrading them further. Men won’t watch the video and think, “Wow, isn’t Beyonce empowering women with her pole dancing moves and skimpy outfits; I was so wrong to disrespect the opposite sex.”

Instead they’ll think, “I’d do her.”

She is of course not completely to blame. She is part of an industry that churns out sex toys on a daily basis and it’s clear that the lines between the music industry and the porn industry are slowly blurring. To make matters worse, Beyonce doesn’t even run her own world as that business is taken care of by her father.

Beyonce, how about these girls? Do they run the world?

There lies another issue of morality – what kind of father is happy to see his daughter dress like a hooker, be lusted after by low class men and spout such ridiculous nonsense as “ Boy I know you love it, How we’re smart enough to make these millions, Strong enough to bear the children, Then get back to business, See, you better not play me, Don’t come here baby, Hope you still like me, Fuck you , Pay me”?

Those conspiracy theories about a New World Order using the music, television, film, video gaming and porn industries to lower the standards of humanity are starting to look awfully convincing. It won’t be long before almost every video contains full frontal hardcore sex and society will quickly grow to accept it as the norm.

Music or porn video? You decide.

Where does it go after that? Newborn porn?

Beyonce is pregnant

Beyonce stole the show at the MTV Video Music Awards yesterday…by revealing her baby bump.

The 29-year-old star was photographed wearing a floaty orange gown and cradling her belly, while saying: “I have a surprise!”

Her rep later confirmed to People: “I’m happy to say it’s true.”

Beyonce is pragnant

During the show, Beyonce performed her new single, Love on Top. As an introduction to the song, she asked the crowd to stand up: “I want you to stand up on your feet. I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me,” she said.

After the performance, she unbuttoned her jacket and rubbed her stomach, much to the crowd’s delight.

“They told friends in the last month,” a source told People. “She’s never been happier. Seriously it’s all she’s been waiting for. And Jay is like an excited kid. They’re adorable.”

Beyonce has been married to 41-year-old rapper Jay-Z for the past three years. The pair were in a long-term relationship before tying the knot in a private ceremony in 2008. On Sunday, the singer cheered on her husband as he performed ‘Otis’ with Kanye West, before taking to the stage herself.

The announcement comes after a stellar summer for the Grammy-winner in which she headlined Glastonbury and released another hit album, 4.

[adsense]Beyonce has won a total of 16 Grammy awards and recently revealed that she felt it was time to put her career on the back burner and concentrate on her family. 

“Now I’m a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children.”

Just this June, Beyonce, who turns 30 on Sept. 4, told Piers Morgan in an interview, “I always said I would have a baby at 30,” adding, “But I also said I was going to retire at 30. So I don’t know…I am not retiring, I tell you.”

When questioned further by Morgan she said: “Only God knows, only God knows.”

Jennifer Garner pregnant again

Jennifer Garner is expecting her third child with husband and fellow actor Ben Affleck. The couple are already parents to five-year-old Violet and two-year-old Seraphina and have stated that they are ‘thrilled’ to be pregnant again.

Garner and Affleck, both 39, have always described themselves as hands-on parents. The actress has previously commented on how she has found juggling motherhood and her career difficult to handle.

Jennifer Garner is pregnant again

‘I fake it like any working mom, and I run out the door,” she told People magazine at the premiere of her latest film, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. “If you looked in my bag, there’s a sippy cup in there right now!’

‘[I] feel like half my brain is somewhere else all the time, but when the camera’s rolling, I pull it together and focus for two minutes,” she added, “and then I kind of turn back to a ditz again. I have a split personality.’

However, the challenges pale in comparison to the pride and love Garner feels towards her little girls. On the red carpet of the premiere, she showed friends photos of Seraphina on her phone. ‘She’s so smiley!’, the star gushed as she did an imitation of her youngest daughter. 

And apparently Garner’s colleagues have not caught wind of her struggles.  ‘She’s such a good mom. I admire her so much,’ costar Lacey Chabert told People. ‘Her little girl is so smart and you can tell she really spends time with her. I just admire her that she can balance all of it.’

[adsense]Garner started dating Ben Affleck in 2004, after her divorce from previous husband Scott Foley. The pair met on the set of Daredevil and made their first official appearance together as a couple at a Boston Red Sox game. Affleck proposed to the actress on her 33rd birthday with a Harry Winston diamond ring. They married in a private Carribean ceremony in 2005, while Garner was already 3 months pregnant with their first daughter.

Garner gave birth to Violet Anne Affleck in December 2005. Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck. was born in January 2009.

Giuliana Rancic trying to IVF one more time

E! News host Giuliana Rancic and her husband, Bill, have announced that they will try In Vitro Fertilization one more time in the near future after another unsuccessful round.

“One time sadly we miscarried and the other time didn’t work, so it’s been really tough,” said Guiliana during her Tuesday’s visit to the The Talk.

The couple had always been very open about their private lives and the quest to start a family. At the time of the miscarriage, they talked about their painful experience.

Giuliana Rancic soldiers on

“Both of us were in shock,” Bill, 39, told People. “Failure wasn’t an option!”

Giuliana, 36, says she was crushed by the news. “I said, ‘I’m not doing this again. I can’t.’ I was angry at life and at God.”

But that has now changed as the star has come to terms with her loss. “We’re going to do IVF another time in the near future because our doctor suggested, ‘I think I can get you pregnant,’” she said on The Talk.

Just in case the couple have bad luck on the third time trying, they are already looking into their other option – adoption.

“When we were in Italy recently I felt very connected to Naples, where I’m from. We thought it would be really wonderful to be able to adopt a child from where I’m from and give a child there some opportunity,” she said.

[adsense]This comment stirred quite a reaction on social networking site Twitter: “I got some Tweets … of people saying, ‘You should adopt from America’ and ‘A lot of kids need help’ and of course that’s true, but you know what? How can you tell a woman where she should adopt from?’” she questions. ”You’ve got to follow your heart. So if it’s a foreign country, if it’s in your backyard … A child is a child.”

Despite the difficult battle, the pair is staying positive: “Right now we’re doing a year of fun — we just needed time off,” she says. “You’ve got to look at the positive.”

Mariah Carey gives birth to human children SHOCKER

Just when I thought it was safe to go back into the world, it happened. What’s the worst possible thing that could happen in the celebrity universe, besides Gaga cloning herself or Madonna releasing another single? Yes, the most feared uterus in the history of showbiz has produced children.

Mariah Carey is now the mother of human twins. And not just the bloated, pendulous space hoppers that she has been swinging about in public since her career began, but proper human children.

Mariah Carey was aiming for an Easter birth

Mariah Carey does her best to display all four twins

The diva and husband Nick Cannon tried hard to keep the pregnancy as quiet and private as possible, by recently posing naked and pregnant for the cover of tasteless celebrity trash rag, Ok! Magazine. The kind of insipid periodical Carey would feel most at home in.

Scary Carey began having cuntractions reaching 8.7 on the Richter Scale (a little less than the earthquake that shook Chile in 2010, claiming hundreds of lives) and finally the unstoppable media hungry songstress was rushed into her own private bespoke hospital once her dilated uterus was clearly visible from space, and then finally extruded the hallowed progeny from her celebrity three-octave vagina at 12.07pm in LA.

In an interview with (not) OK! Magazine, the couple didn’t reportedly say that they didn’t care what gender their imminent progeny were, so long as they had high cheekbones, and could manage at least a 4-and-a-half octave vocal range and were human.

Mariah Carey's twins enjoy some pool time

Mariah Carey unexpectedly gave birth to human twins in a pool. They almost drowned in her bikini.

According to ‘sources’ the entertainer’s uterus is lined with the pelts of rare animals and includes a recording studio, home cinema and parking space for at least four vintage sports cars and a 4×4 for navigating the unpredictable terrain of LA’s highways.

Unfortunately, the cuntractions began so suddenly, that Mariah was unable to deliver her baby celebrities at a private audience for Gaddafi as hoped.

The twins, as yet unnamed, are hoping to tour the US in Fall in order to promote their first single and new range of diapers endorsed by their mother.

Tori Spelling tweets about her third pregnancy

Tori Spelling has announced that she’s expecting her third child. She broke the news via Twitter, saying that she and husband Dean McDermott are to be parents again.

“I know there’s been a lot of speculation, so I wanted everyone to hear from me … It’s official … Dean & I are PREGNANT!!!!” said her tweet.

While filming their new show for Oxygen, Tori & Dean: sTORIbook Weddings, the couple denied reports that Spelling was pregnant again, but having been seen with something of a bump while wearing a clingy black dress at the GLAAD awards in LA, the former actress has come clean.

Tori Spelling is pregnant with her third child

Spelling has also spoken to OK! Magazine, telling them that her first two children, four-year-old son Liam and two-year-old daughter Stella, constantly press their parents for another little brother or sister.

“Because they’re starting to understand when they see women with pregnant bellies and they’re like, ‘Mama, when are you going to have a baby in your belly?'” Spelling told journalists at the GLAAD Awards.

“I’ve gotten more wrinkles! It changes you because A) your life is no longer your own, and B) you couldn’t be happier about it,” Spelling explained to OK! Magazine when asked how being a mother had impacted on her life.

“It becomes so much more than about you. It’s these two little beings that you just want to share your life with and just do everything you can to give them the best life possible. And it’s kind of like reliving your life all over again and getting to do the things you loved in your childhood and getting to do the things you didn’t get to do in your childhood. You get to do it through their eyes so it’s amazing.”

Nicole Richie lashes out at "cruel" pregnany rumors

Nicole Richie, who recently tied the knot with long-term partner Joel Madden, is far from impressed with the rumors doing the rounds that she is pregnant and has made her thoughts about the media gossip very clear in a statement.

“Contrary to recent speculation, I am not pregnant”, the mother of two said to People.

“This irresponsible reporting continues to feed an atmosphere of self-doubt and insecurity.

“To publicly point out a change in anyone’s body is mean-spirited and cruel.

“People’s bodies change and change again. This is not newsworthy and is a waste of valuable media space that should be used for more important issues,” the 29 year old added.

The former reality star’s weight dropped to a worrying low in the past and when pictures of her looking rail thin in a bikini looking rail thin surface, specualtion that she was suffering from an eating disorder –which she has always vehemently denied — was rife.

“It was a little unfair to say someone has an eating disorder when they don’t,” Richie said in the March  2010 issue of Marie Claire UK.

[adsense] “It’s extremely insulting and irresponsible. An eating disorder is serious and it’s a disease,” she added.

Actress Keira Knightley is another celebrity who denies having an eating disorder, in spite of being very thin. Felicity Huffman, Thandie Newton and Paula Abdul, however, have all admitted to having suffered from anorexia or bulimia.
