Valerie Bertinelli: Botox changed the shape of my eyebrows, hated it
Valerie Bertinelli has been open about her struggle with weight and body image for many years. Shes spoken about realizing that she cant find happiness just from losing weight, and shes had her fair share of body-shamers on the internet. Shes responded to trolls in the past and called them out for being petty and cruel. Recently someone commented on one of Valeries TikToks, the Botox looks great, which was definitely meant as a snarky comment. So Valerie made a TikTok where she talked about why that type of comment hurts, and detailed her own experience with Botox. She had it before, but she didnt like how it turned out. Valerie comes across so genuine and sweet, it just makes me more annoyed that people are coming at her for the apparent crime of aging as a 62-year-old woman.

The ?One Day at a Time? alum posted a TikTok Sunday in response to a user who commented ?The Botox looks great? on one of her prior videos.

The Food Network star interpreted the comment as sarcasm, but decided to switch gears by responding to the mockery with mindfulness.

?I know you didn?t mean that as a compliment, but let?s talk about it, shall we?? Bertinelli began. ?I have tried Botox ? I hated it.?

The ?Hot in Cleveland? star then pulled up a photo of herself from six years ago when she did get Botox, and explained that the procedure ?changed the shape of my eyebrows? resulting in her not recognizing her own face.

?What I thought it was going to do was help me with my genetically puffy eyes,? Bertinelli explained. ?They?ve always annoyed me. I?ve always wanted those deep-set eyes. Don?t have ?em. Never going to get ?em. So, just live with it.?

But then Bertinelli got to the real reason why she wanted to talk about the comment.

?Because you?re trying to shame me, and you?re a woman. Like, what made you go out of your way to try to shame me?? Bertinelli said. ?And I?m not the first person to try to be shamed on TikTok or Instagram or any place. So, we?re women. We have to stick together, OK? Don?t shame somebody if they want to do something, anything, to make themselves feel better as they go out into this insane, flippin? crazy world, OK??

She then shattered any kind of stigma surrounding cosmetic procedures by admitting that if Botox helped her feel better about her appearance, she?d use it.

?Some people can do Botox, and it looks amazing on them,? she said. ?I am not one of them, unfortunately, or I would?ve kept doing it. But thankfully, it faded. I couldn?t wait for it to fade.?

[From The Huffington Post]

I wonder who told Valerie that Botox would help with puffy eyes because that just seems like bad advice. Botox in the forehead will slightly lift the tail of the brow in many cases, but it wont meaningfully change how your eye socket looks. Anyway, good for her for calling this person out. The stigma against women getting treatments like Botox is so annoying, and it does feel like women cant win. If they age naturally, people shame them, and if they get professional help, people shame them.

As for the person shaming her being a woman, Im not surprised at that. In my experience, women can shame each other worse than men sometimes. And I think women often shame each other because of envy, or because they feel threatened. I was raised in a very conservative church and I carried parts of modesty culture around with me even after I left the church. Id never say anything to other women, but I would judge them in my mind for wearing revealing clothes, and it would bother me so much. I had to examine why I was getting so activated, and I realized it was because I envied them. I wanted to be seen, I wanted to be desired, I wanted to own my femininity like they were. And the culture I was raised in told me I was a deviant and a Jezebel if I wanted any of those things, so I suppressed a lot of stuff. Now Im not triggered at all by other women wearing whatever the heck they want. In most cases when other women annoy me, its because theyre reflecting back something I havent accepted about myself. I think a similar dynamic is often at play when women shame each other for how they manage aging or treatments like Botox. Valerie has always looked great to me and I hope she doesnt let mean comments get to her.

I couldn't hear it that well so I cranked up the volume and had to shorten it for twitter. [1/2]

Joe Manganiello ended his marriage because he wanted to be a dad

Joe Manganiello ended his marriage because he wanted to be a dad
When Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara?s split was first announced this week, my first instinct/guess was ?I wonder if this was about kids.? Sofia was a young mother her son Manolo is already 31 years old. She has repeatedly expressed her lack of desire to do any of that again. Considering all of the crap she went through with Nick Loeb, I always assumed she put her cards on the table with Joe and let him know that she had no interest in having another kid.

Well, as TMZ reported, Joe was the one to file for divorce. His lawyer is Laura Wasser, there?s a prenup in place and neither party seems interested in contesting it. I would imagine there will be a minor fight over real estate, but overall this will probably be a pretty cut-and-dry divorce. At the end of TMZ?s piece, they noted: ?Speaking of kids, were hearing a big reason Joe has filed is their conflict over having children he wants them, she does not.? Page Sixs source said the same thing:

Joe Manganiello chose to end his seven-year marriage to Sofa Vergara because they disagreed on the topic of children, Page Six has learned. A source close to the ?True Blood? star, 46, tells us he?s always wanted to be a dad and that those feelings have only intensified in recent years.

It?s unclear where Vergara, 51, stood on the subject when the two said ?I do? in November 2015, but we?re told she may have been open to it at the time. The ?Modern Family? star is already mom to 31-year-old son Manolo, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Joe Gonzalez.

She was also dragged into a lengthy court battle over custody of two frozen embryos from her 2013 IVF treatments with then-fianc Nick Loeb, who sought to bring them to term. Though a judge ultimately ruled in the actress? favor in March 2021, we?re told the experience may have affected her view on having more kids.

Our insider tells us this disparity in the estranged couple?s relationship is the real reason for the split, noting that the ?irreconcilable differences? Manganiello cited in his divorce petition ? which he filed Wednesday ? is accurate. Despite reports claiming the actor?s longtime sobriety negatively impacted the marriage, our source does not believe that to be the case.

[From Page Six]

In case you?ve blocked out the Nick Loeb saga, that ahole kept dragging Sofia into court for years after she broke off their engagement. Loeb wanted ?custody? of the embryos they created while they were together he wanted to implant the embryos into another woman and raise Sofia?s biological children as a single father. It was truly bonkers. Loeb?s other aim was to be a nuisance, a thorn in Sofia?s side, and attempt to do damage to her marriage to Joe. If Sofia was originally open to having a kid with Joe, and then the Loeb stuff affected her, I don?t really blame her. Although, as I said at the beginning of the post, I kind of think Sofia was always done with having kids. That?s her right. And Joe can change his mind too.

Shakira is facing a second 'tax fraud case' in Spain but they haven't notified her

Shakira is facing a second 'tax fraud case' in Spain but they haven't notified her
Back when Shakira was with Gerard Pique, she owned a home in Barcelona and that was her main residence and where she raised her children. She also owns homes in her home country of Colombia, the US, Uruguay and other countries. Now that Shakira and Pique are over, she?s moved to Miami full-time and she?s cut her ties with Spain. Except the Spanish tax authorities are still trying to drag her to court over her time spent in Barcelona. This has been going on for a few years now and, from the beginning, it sounded like the Spanish tax authorities are the scammers, not Shakira. Even by the most basic Spanish reporting on the issue, Shakira paid what she owed plus interest. Shakira has also spoken about the tax issue at length in interviews, getting very specific about how many days a year she spent in Spain and how thorough her tax specialists are she?s worked with PricewaterhouseCoopers for years. Well, funny story?

Shakira is facing a second tax fraud case in Spain. Almost 10 months after the singer, 46, was ordered to stand trial in her $13.9 million tax evasion case in the country, she has now been hit with another investigation.

According to Reuters, a Spanish court said Thursday that it has started a new investigation against the Colombian star linked to alleged fraud on personal income tax and wealth tax in 2018. The court, which is in the town of Esplugues de Llobregat near Barcelona, said it had no information on how much money was in question, according to the Associated Press.

Per a translation from Spanish media outlet El Pais, the court opened a second case as a result of a complaint by the Barcelona Economic Crimes Prosecutor regarding Shakira allegedly defrauding the Tax Agency. Another local outlet, El Periodico, reported that the prosecutor?s office has filed a complaint for two alleged tax crimes.

A representative for Shakira told PEOPLE in a statement Thursday that she ?defends having always acted in accordance with the law and under the advice of the best tax experts. She is now focused on her life as an artist in Miami and is confident that there will be a favorable resolution of her tax issues.?

Her representative also said she is yet to receive any formal notification of the second probe regarding the 2018 financial year. The statement continued. ?The singers legal team will not make any comments until the notification reaches them through the official and legally established channels.?

?As it is publicly known, and as the Spanish Treasury was officially notified, Shakira is now living in Miami, so she must be notified personally at her new address, in strict accordance with the provisions of the Law.?

[From People]

I feel sorry for Shakira and I?m glad she got the hell out of Spain. They?re trying to make an example out of her, they?re trying to tie her up in court for years, they?re trying to wear her down and jam her up. It also looks like they?re mad that she left the country. It?s very Meghan Markle-coded, right? The anger towards a ?foreigner,? the otherizing, the need to make an example out of her. Shakira has been handling all of this the right way, in my opinion she?s been open about what they?re doing and she?s provided details through her reps and in her own interviews. She also believes that the Spanish government has executed a smear campaign against her, and it?s easy to see why she believes that.

Ariana Grande already has a new boyfriend & he's married with a baby at home

Ariana Grande already has a new boyfriend & he's married with a baby at home
I knew Ariana Grande had someone waiting in the wings as soon as she turned up at Wimbledon without her wedding ring, and within 24 hours, we found out that she was divorcing her husband of two years, Dalton Gomez. The only thing I was wrong about was my theory that the jumpoff was Andrew Garfield. It?s NOT Garfy!! Please, Ariana doesn?t have that kind of taste in men. She likes um, dudes who dont have the raw sexual magnetism of Andrew Garfield. Her jumpoff is very much her type, with a new twist. The new guy, as confirmed by TMZ and People, is Ethan Slater. Y?all, he?s married with a baby at home.

Ariana Grande is moving on after her split from husband Dalton Gomez. The ?Thank U, Next? singer, 30, is dating Broadway alum Ethan Slater, her costar in the upcoming film adaptation of Wicked, sources confirm to PEOPLE.

?Ariana and Dalton separated in January, one source says. She and Ethan recently began dating, and he is separated from his wife.

Reps for both stars have not returned multiple requests for comment. TMZ was first to report the news. Grande is set to play Glinda in Universal?s film adaptation of the beloved Broadway musical, while Slater, 31, will play Boq, the love interest of Elphaba?s sister Nessarose.

The movie began shooting in the U.K. last year and was scheduled for release in November 2024, though it remains unclear if the SAG-AFTRA strike will affect its premiere.

[From People]

Ariana basically moved to London late last year to work on Wicked, which is when (we now know) her marriage was pretty much over. Dalton apparently tried to win her back, but she was done with him. So? I wonder when Ari and Ethan Slater started? They?re established/comfortable enough of as a couple where Ari?s people are openly telling People Magazine that he left his wife. The same wife he gushed over just two months ago. The wife?s name is Lilly Jay. Lilly and Ethan married in 2018 they were high school sweethearts. Lilly gave birth to their son last year. This is giving me strong Miranda Lambert vibes!! Oh, Ariana, what the hell did you do???
