Celeb in 5: Wednesday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. Mummy bloggers have declared war on Reese Witherspoon. Grab a cup of tea and gather round, ladies.

Oh good GOD NO.

Reese Witherspoon has angered ‘mummy bloggers’ after her speech at the Wall Street Journal’s 2017 Innovator Awards.

Upon being awarded ‘Entertainment Innovator of the Year’, the ‘champion of working women’ took the moment to speak out for more stories that show the “full spectrum of the female experience.”

Sounds about right… fairly run-of-the-mill, right? Very Reese. Very good.

“I’m not talking about mommy blogs and 14 ways to cook a turkey”, stating that women want “real substance and premium thought-provoking, well-made content.”

Oh. OH.

Naturally her words angered well… owners of mommy blogs and writers of turkey content ev-er-y-wh-er-e.

What do you think? Offensive, or totally, um, kosher?

2. Why Bec Judd’s Melbourne Cup outfit looked different to what we usually see from her.

For better or for worse, the Melbourne Cup is the most note-worthy, annual, spectacle of Aussie fashion.

Yes, on the first Tuesday of Novemeber each year, all eyes are trained on those in the Birdcage, and the custom-made head wear, and eye-catching fashions they choose to sport.


For this reason, most prepare months in advance and normally with the help of a trained stylist.

However, woman of the people, Bec Judd, went her own way.

Judd revealed to the Herald Sun, “I styled myself,” she said.

“I like to. I’m just too busy and it’s easier to do it myself. I saw this dress and bought it and I did the same for Derby Day.

“I’m just a simple chick. No frills.”


The style blogger, and mum of four is known for her chic, sharp and incredibly polished looks, but the soft scalloping on her symmetrical dress, and prairie-chic, wide-brimmed hat was a wonderfully, refreshing departure.

In the words of Fleetwood Mac, Bec Judd “you can go your own way”, and we’re cheering *applause emoji*.

Oh, and while we’re here, perhaps you fancy a listen of Bec Judd and Monique Bowley on The Bump, Mamamia’s pregnancy podcast. Post continues below.

3. Take a peek inside Taylor Swift’s totally V.I.P. “listening party”

Just in case you missed it, champion of girl gangs world wide, Taylor Swift help a VVIP preview party for 500 select fans for her upcoming album reputation.


There were tears, there were shrieks, someone probably fainted, and you can see everything here.

One fan exclaimed, “this is the best day in my entire life,” and you best believe she meant that whole-hardheartedly.


Swift had listening parties in London, Los Angeles, Nashville and Rhode Island, and while Sydney didn’t make the cut (rude), come November 10th this ol’ writer will be blasting the album on high volume much to the detriment of her fellow public transport patrons.


4. Guys, it’s okay. Sex and The City isn’t *completely* ruined.

It’s been quite a ride for the stars of Sex and the City after reports of their rumoured feud made headlines and across the world, proving none of us have hobbies and are too invested in fake friendships on-screen.

Anywho, it would appear not all love is lost between the stars, with Kristin Davis (aka Charlotte) posting a picture with Cynthia Nixon (aka Miranda) to Instagram overnight.


The duo posed in matching t-shirts for the Equal Rights movement.

Does an Instagram of two of the four mean the who crew is back on good terms, or is this the world’s best comeback PR photo in the world?

You decide.

5. We bet Ryan Reynolds is sleeping on the couch tonight.

Blake Lively is known for her glamorous red carpet looks and luscious blonde locks, but someone has taken hack to hair this week… for a role, of course.

Lively’s blonde locks have disappeared for her latest role in the upcoming thriller, The Rhythm Section – and so too has her characteristically sleek style.

The 30-year-old is playing a heroin addicted sex worker and husband, actor Ryan Reynolds, had a little bit to say about it, sharing a picture of his wife to Instagram with the caption #nofilter.

Put your couches out for one Ryan Reynolds. He may need one.
