Eva Longoria - Fat or Pregnant?



Is is really any of our business this early in the game?

Weeks ago during and interview Le Grand Journal with her husband Tony Parker, Eva Longoria Parker was asked if the was pregnant. People are still wondering and still asking.

"I'm just fat" was her reply. Funny thing is I get it - celeb lives tend to be open for public inquires and scrutiny. But really though, this line of questioning is a bit gauche.

Okay, here's a great tip on womanhood: Most women prefer to wait until they've completed their first trimester before making their pregnancy public. Some choose to do this for all sorts of medical reasons. Oh and this includes civilians - not just celebrity women.

So don't be shocked when folks just evade the question or out right pull an Ashlee Simpson and plain ol' lie (I knew she was pregnant!). Women have their "personal" reasons for wanting to hold off.

Etiquette Expert Opinion: If you come across someone who looks a bit pregnant (as Mrs. Parker does in the photo above) and they haven't taken the liberty to share it with you YET then for the moment it's none of your business. Keep that question to yourself and let them tell the good news when they're good and ready.

Oh and my girly opinion? We just have to wait aand see!

Jane Fonda has an Opps-a-Daisy Moment

Okay, so Meredith Vieira is interviewing Jane Fonda on the Today show along with Eve Ensler, the creator of the Vagina Monologues and the V-Day movement. She (Jane) tells Meredith that she originally did not want to be in the play because they wanted her "to do a monologue called c***" Watch the clip.




What I find is HILARIOUS how time has helped Jane go from not wanting to say that little word in a theater to feeling oh-so-comfortable enough to say it on national television to millions of viewers. Too funny!!!!

Okay, so yes it was one of those icky words and definitely the wrong time to say it. But how many times have we let something slip out of our mouths and before we could finish we realized it was a mistake? How about asking that girl friend if she's pregnant only to find out she's just gained a little weight around the middle? Mortifying huh? Well I do have a couple of tips to help you get out of on of those Opps-a-Daisey situations:

1. Take some sort of action immediately. Jane didn't realize her mistake while on air but on her way out of the studio when it was brought to her attention, she graciously apologized and kept it stepping. Had she not addressed it and went into hiding it'd be a bigger mess today. Which brings me to my next point:

2. Get over it quickly. Don't dwell on the blunder; you'll bring too much attention to it. That pregnancy comment I mentioned earlier? Once you apologize move on, the more you talk about it or keep apologizing the longer you actually stay on the subject. CHANGE IT!!! You'll all be the better for it.
