Hilaria Baldwin defends her body on social media 10 weeks after having her fourth child


Hilaria Baldwin Shared a Post-Baby Lingerie Selfie to 'Inspire' Other Moms to Eat 'Right' & Exercise

She wrote: '10 weeks, one day...it’s been a while since I posted an update photo like this. I do it to inspire feeding and exercising your body right.

'If it resonates with you, wonderful! If not, think of it as a bikini and scroll past'

Some posters accused her of photoshop. She responded by posting a clip this time:

'For those who are saying I photoshopped...how about this? If my ribs look funny, I apologize for them,'

The mom of four added:

'I’m the worst with technology anyway, so the idea of me altering an image is laughable. If you know me, I’m totally against all of that and have been an advocate for appearing natural."

Gordon Ramsay Wants to Teach Locals How to Cook Their Own Food

*OP note: read the replies to this Tweet. LOL

British Chef Gordon Ramsay has a new show in the works called Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted, slated to premiere next year on The National Geographic channel.

Premise: Ramsay will explore foreign food cultures, “discover the undiscovered”, and engage in a kitchen competition with the locals, where he will pit his own interpretations of local dishes against the traditional versions.

Public reactions have been great negative, so National Geographic issued a disclaimer statement of support:

“We are disappointed that the announcement of our upcoming series with Gordon Ramsay was taken out of context. With National Geographic’s storied history of exploration, our plan with this series is to celebrate and learn about local cultures around the world. In partnering with Ramsay — a well-known adventure enthusiast — we are going to fully immerse viewers and give them a glimpse into surprising and unexpected cultures and local flavors. We have not gone into production on the series yet, so this perspective is premature. We’re looking forward to working with Ramsay, who’s been making food and travel documentaries for well over a decade, to share the series when it premieres sometime next year.”

ONTD, do you miss Anthony Bourdain’s classier exploration of cultural cuisine?

Sam Heughan is NOT gay, but he's is honored that you think he is


Sam Heughan did an interview with NewNowNext and this is what he had to say:

A critic, or a troll, tweeted: “Mr. Heughan is one of the most boring homosexual actors out there.” Your retort: “Boring and homosexual never go together. But thank you for the compliment.x”

On if people sometimes mistake him as gay because he played many gay roles throughout his career:

"Yeah, I guess. I played a few gay parts and maybe people might make assumptions about me. I mean, it’s not true, but I don’t really care. I think, whatever, if that’s what you’re gonna pick out from someone’s performance. "

He thinks it's a compliment:

"I love that world. My makeup artist in the U.K. is very camp and she brings out the best camp side in me. "
