Jenny McCarthy posted a picture of her pregnant, 211 lbs. self over the weekend. The picture is from when she was pregnant with her son, Evan, back in 2002. She credits Weight Watchers for getting her back in shape. And how! She said after she had her son, she left the hospital weighing 200 pounds. She Tweeted this weekend, “For anyone that doubted my 211 lbs at pregnancy here is a photo I found! Meaty meaty ass! Whoa!”
Russell Brand didn’t Tweet about Amy Winehouse’s death, like so many stars. He actually took the time to sit down and write a letter on his website about his relationship with the troubled star. Russell, a recovering addict, knows about Amy’s situation all too well. He said:
When you love someone who suffers from the disease of addiction you await the phone call. There will be a phone call. The sincere hope is that the call will be from the addict themselves, telling you they’ve had enough, that they’re ready to stop, ready to try something new. Of course though, you fear the other call, the sad nocturnal chime from a friend or relative telling you it’s too late, she’s gone.
