1. Stop the Western World. We want to get off. Because in our world, Victoria’s Secret models are held up as the epitome of female glamour. The look and body shape that every woman is supposed to aspire to. But if we’re supposed to aim to look like this, then there’s something seriously wrong:
Yep, that’s the stomach of a Victoria’s Secret model. The CONCAVE stomach of Candice Swanepoel, who posted this picture on her Instagram to show everyone how hard she’s been working out before the Victoria’s Secret fashion show next Wednesday.
Feeling bad about yourself now because your stomach doesn’t look like that? Please don’t – because NOBODY’S STOMACH LOOKS LIKE THAT. Unless they are a lingerie model who may or may not have eaten solid food in days, because they are planning to strut down a catwalk next week wearing a few scraps of fabric over their genitals along with a giant pair of angel wings .
And remember this. Regardless of how flat/concave their stomachs are – the models will still get airbrushed when they appear in print. Check out our gallery of Victoria’s Secret Angels before and after Photoshop, as well as other celebrities who have been Photoshopped:
Folds of skin along Kroes' side have been smoothed out (1), along with veins in the crook of her arm (2) and the area around her armpit (3). Shadows have been deleted from her abs, making them look less toned (4). The nude underwear is gone (5).
2. Last night was a reality television producer’s dream, when a romantic proposal played out live during the Big Brother finale.
BB housemate Benjamin Norris proposed to his boyfriend after it was announced that he had won the reality show.
Ben – who was one of 16 housemates on the show – won $250,000 and shocked audiences when, after leaving the house, got down on one knee to ask his partner to marry him. Watch this video of the proposal. It’s surprisingly moving……
“This was a diamond that my great grandfather bought for my great grandmother and it was worn by my parents on their wedding day so it’s something that is a part of my family,” Norris said.
“Since I’ve met Ben all I have wanted is for him to be a part of my family. And no-one is going to tell us that sitting on the couch together at the end of the day pretending that we’re married that we’re not married.”
3. Melissa George – former Home and Away actress and star of The Slap – has a new boyfriend, French millionaire Jean-David Blanc. The Aussie actress, who previously dated business magnate Russell Simmons, dismissed talk of marriage but was adamant children would be in her future. Speaking to news.com.au, she stated:
“I would love my own kids,” she said. “That stuff is obvious.
“I am going to be a mother, absolutely obvious no matter how, when, what. I really am picking the right father for my child.
“It’s very simple.”
4. We had a very exciting day at Mamamia HQ watching the US election yesterday. Which makes us a lot like these celebrities who were also keeping a very close eye on the proceedings. Check out their election tweets below:
