Contrary to popular belief, regular exercise is encouraged by doctors for expecting moms because it can help a woman stay healthy and alleviate some of the discomforts like stiffness, back pain, leg cramping, or constipation. I love how the following famous females are staying active during their pregnancy but not overdoing it. Let's see who they are!
Last week we brought you all kinds of Twitter pics, including Margherita Missoni, Coco Rocha, and Rachel Zoe sharing a slice of their life on Twitter. This week showed loads of fun, from Ashley Greene's dog getting into her leopard bag to Anna Dello Russo and Stefano Gabbana showing how headgear is done to some Lara Stone gorgeous, then and now. Click our slideshow to see.
The always chic and stylish Nicole Richie is known for her boho chic vibe and trendsetting style. Her milkmaid braids – also seen on Heidi Klum and Lauren Conrad – look cute and easy enough to try at home, so we asked her Celebrity Secret Weapon, hairstylist Byron Williams at the Byron & Tracey Salon, to show us how to get her signature hairstyle.
Lisa Loeb is not only a talented singer, songwriter and actress (she has a new album coming out on Tuesday), but she's much more tech savvy then I would have ever imagined — BlackBerrys and MacBooks and iPods, oh my! AOL's Switched recently chatted with her about all her tech habits — including her favorite websites (Facebook made the list), her love for her MacBook Pro and BlackBerry Curve, and how she is a big fan of puzzles like the Rubik's cube! Here are some of the highlights from the interview:
- On what cell she is using now and why she loves it or hates it: "I use the BlackBerry Curve. I love that I can e-mail, take photos, send and receive e-mail, type on real buttons, not a virtual keypad. I love that it's sleek. I especially love taking photos with it, but I hate that it's difficult to get the photos onto my MacBook Pro."
- Discussing whether or not she'll get an iPhone: "Not yet. I'm waiting on a flash, on a keypad that I can turn sideways, and to come to terms with the virtual keyboard."
- And finally, if she is a Mac or PC kinda gal: "I use a Mac mainly because it's really user-friendly. Also, ever since I was a kid I've used an Apple. Ross Perot provided our school with Apple II computers when they came out. We used to program them and play Lemonade."
I always knew that people tend to look like their pets, but I had no idea that there are so many people who looked like videogame characters (with the exception of Ron Jeremy looking like Mario, did I honestly just say that?). Here is Daxter, the character from the Jak and Daxter series, with his twin DJ Qualls, the hilarious guy from Roadtrip. You can check out the entire gallery at gamerhelp, which includes celebs like Carrot Top and Chyna.
This past weekend Heroes star Hayden Panettiere stepped out in true geeky fashion for the 2007 National Big Apple Comic Book, Art, Toy, and Sci-Fi Expo convention. This three day annual event, now in its eleventh year, hosts more than three hundred dealers and exhibitors, and showcases comics, toys, action figures, original art, videos, autographs, non-sports cards, TV and movie memorabilia—making it the ultimate place to buy, sell or trade your collectibles!
Kristen Bell from Veronica Mars was also in attendance to join Hayden in greeting fans and taking pictures. Too bad Kristen was no where in sight for the photo-op with Star Wars characters White Stormtrooper and Blackhole Stormtrooper!
Recently, AOL's Switched had the pleasure of talking with gadget goddess Emmy Rossum. While busy on the road, Emmy always makes sure she has her BlackBerry and iPod on hand to keep her company. Just like the rest of us, she sometimes forgets to lock her cell phone and ends up calling the last number she dialed—oops! Here are some of the highlights from the interview:
- On what cell phone she has right now and what she loves/hates about it? "I have the new LG ENV. I love the keyboard (as it makes texting so fast and fun), the high quality camera and camcorder! I like downloading ring tones to my phone of whatever song I'm loving at the moment."
- Is she a Mac or PC girl? "Mac. I love iTunes, iPhoto and the laptop built-in camera is great for "seeing" friends and family when I travel."
- On what gadget she would take with her on a stranded island: "Probably an iPhone. I would have music, movies, and contact with my friends on instant messenger while calling to be rescued! "
Recently, AOL's Switched had the pleasure of talking with Hilary Duff about gadgets, gaming, and her net surfing habits. Who knew that this actress-turned-popstar was such a techie diva? During the interview, Duff shares her obsession with BlackBerries, the infamous and yet-to-be-released iPhone and - this is the bit that totally surprised me - how she can't wait to get a Slingbox, the new TV streaming device that lets you watch all your fave TV shows on your laptop. I must say, just knowing that Duff is into Slingbox makes me respect her a whole lot more. Here are some of the highlights from the interview:
- On what cell she is using now and why she loves it or hates it: "The T-Mobile BlackBerry 8700, I moved from the Sidekick because the Sidekick was big and more like a toy. I like the BlackBerry, it has a cool pin system for BlackBerry-to-BlackBerry communication."
- Discussing whether or not she'll get an iPhone: "I'll wait and see how people like it. The first of anything always has glitches and kinks to work out."
- What she wishes her iPod, cell phone, or laptop could do that it doesn't do now: "I wish my cell phone could play my favorite TV shows on voice demand. It would be cool if my laptop could go to applications and iTunes by voice command, too."
