I happen to like Maria Menounos. She has always made me laugh on Howard Stern, been very open about battling her weight and has succeeded greatly. Her body is amazing, which is why this upsets me so much. Maria is the spokesperson for a new product called Kellogg’s To Go breakfast shake. The idea is to get America not to skip breakfast, which I totally support. Here is where I have an issue, ready?
The ingredients: water, protein blend (water, nonfat milk, whey protein concentrate, soy protein isolate), sugar, contains two percent or less of polydextrose, maltodextrin, canola oil, natural and artificial flavors, magnesium phosphate, potassium citrate, tricalcium phosphate, gellan gum, celluose gum, soy lecithin, mono and diglycerides, ascorbic acid (vitamin c), salt, potassium phosphate, carrageenan, corn syrup solids, sucralose, vitamin e acetate, vitamin k1, acesulfame potassium, niacinamide, vitamin d3, calcium pantothenate, vitamin b12, zinc sulfate, vitamin a palmitate, ferric pyrophosphate, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin b6), roboflavin (vitamin b2), managnese sulfate, thiamin hydrochloride (vitamin b1), potassium iodide, folic acid, biotin, chromium chloride, sodium molybdate, sodium selenite.
I will just choose a few poisons: polydextrose, matodextrin, canola oil (always GMO), SUGAR, sucralose and corn syrup solids JUST TO NAME A FEW.
WHY would ANYONE in their right mind promote a product so obviously bad for you? One word kids: MONEY.
I still love her, but sometimes celebs (not just Maria, obvs) need to think things completely through and have SOME sort of moral compass. I beg of these celebs to think about the future, but maybe my plea is futile…..sigh
This is MASSIVE news! After being told she had 3-6 months to live due to terminal brain cancer, Valerie Harper combined Eastern medicines with Western and her doctor has just told her she is “close to remission!” They said it will never be gone and will have to be “managed” but this is just wondrous. That is how she is able to do Dancing With the Stars if you all were wondering the same thing I was after reading the interwebs with all of the rumors of the upcoming cast. OMG. I am so friggin happy for her.
It’s so amazing to see someone stand by their word. Usually in Showbiz (especially radio which isn’t showbiz), women are afraid to leave their posts to have a baby as ridiculous as this sounds, because their job may not be there when they return. That is NOT the case with Fearne Cotton and Celebrity Juice. Gotta love Leigh Francis, that man is amazing. Nice of Kelly Brook to keep her seat warm as well, but she was no Fearne.
Allegedly, but you know how this story goes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. I personally feel like this has been coming for quite some time now, don’t know why, I just felt it in me waters. It’s on the cover of People Magazine, not the Enquirer so you know the shit’s gotta be at least remotely true. The “source” said they are “taking a break.” If they do break up, the reports are that it’s going to be a HUGE divorce settlement and that only means one thing: ugly. Kids are involved here, that’s the worst bit. Hopefully they can keep them out of the drama, though they are old enough to know what’s going on. (via People)
