Beyoncé Shows Off Twin Bump At Baby Shower

A very pregnant Beyoncé stripped down to a bikini top and long skirt during her Beverly Hills baby shower Saturday — with no qualms about showing off her twin-sized baby bump.

The 35-year-old mega-celebrity, who has yet to reveal the gender or due date of the babies-to-be, has decorated her massive belly with a large henna tattoo, as these photos from her star-studded shower show.

Guests included La La Anthony and tennis goddess Serena Williams, who is also pregnant. Beyoncé’s ex-Destiny’s Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, also attended.

Proud mom Tina Knowles Lawson led guests in hollering “Happy Carter push party!” — a shout-out to Beyoncé’s married name: Mrs. Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. The couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy, was born in 2012. Beyoncé caused a sensation when she announced in February — to her 92 million Instagram followers — that she is pregnant with twins.

Beyoncé and Jay Z have not revealed the sex of their babies, however, according to the singer’s father, Mathew Knowles, the couple may be expecting a boy and a girl.

“Blue Ivy’s going to have brothers and sisters,” the 65-year-old shared with CBS’s “The Insider” in February.

He then recovered from the slip, saying: “Oh, I don’t know. I just kinda threw that out, ’cause I didn’t know if it’s a boy or a girl so you have to say brother and sister.”

According to ET Online, the couple’s twins are reportedly due in June.

Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2 Episode 1 Recap

Have you missed the ladies of Potomac in their absence from our screens?

If so, then The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2 Episode 1 was most definitely the episode you were craving. It had it all: Catfights, Fashion and a whole lot of shade.

When the episode got underway, Gizelle Bryant was trying on a new wig and implying she knew better than Beyonce. “Becky and all of her good hair don’t have nothin’ on me.” Yeah, we believe you Gizelle. If that was not self-centered enough, Gizelle then pleaded with her hairdresser to let her speak about her new boyfriend.

“Can we talk about my man? … Kevin. … I dunno if we’re gonna mingle, but we’re at least gonna give it a shot.” Um, Gizelle, it sure seems like you don’t know much about your man. “If he comes in a short package, that’s fine. As long as not everything is short,” she concluded.

After that, we checked in with Charrisse — who was no longer reeling from the events that paved the way for her husband to ditch her. “Charrisse last year was a very unhappy person and holding onto damaged goods. … Charrisse don’t live here anymore.”

Charrisse also revealed that she sent a cease and desist letter to Charrisse for chatting smack about her to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.

Meanwhile, Ashley revealed that things between her and Michael were not good and part of that was down to their restaurant not doing good business.

“We’re eight months in, and it’s been a very difficult time. … People weren’t really digging our food.” She then opened up about their dire finances, saying, “Michael has invested over 1.5 million dollars, and he’s taking care of it until we make ends meet. It’s putting a strain on my relationship.”

That’s a whole lot of money to invest in something that appears to be failing. Ashley was not the only cast member struggling with dire straits on the financial side of things. Robyn revealed that things were not going well. “As a result of all of our financial challenges, our house ended up going into foreclosure.” She then opened up about her husband, Juan and his desire to become a couple again. “Juan wants us to be a couple again, but there’s a block up that’s preventing me from looking at our situation as a relationship.”

After that, Charisse revealed that her husband wanted to part ways with her. “He’s wanting a divorce.” She continued, “I decided that you know what? My children are what’s important. … We haven’t talked about it so much. … Hopefully, he gets a job.”

Later, Gizelle stirred up some drama for Charrisse. Robyn was trying to bring the feud to an end, but defended Charrisse in the process. “I don’t feel like she was calling you a whore. … Didn’t she say something like, ‘I’m not going around calling you a whore?’”

“You were wrong for putting her business out there.”

However, Robyn’s words were not enough to tone down Gizelle, who went forward with some more claims about her former friend. “She has told me she cheats on Eddie,” Gizelle claimed. Is she lying? We have no idea.

At the Manifest Your Destiny competition charity event, Gizelle tried to stir up some more drama. This time it was all down to a dancer named Teon who was grinding on Ashley. Ashley did win first place in the competition, but Charrisse was too busy turning her attentions to Gizelle.

“I did not call you a f–king whore. Don’t let the zip code fool you, baby.” Gizelle seemed to retreat, but is she just biding her time to ruin Charrisse’s life?

Mel B Claims Husband Stephen Belafonte Brutally Abused Her

Spice Girl Mel B claims her estranged husband punched, choked, berated and sexually exploited her — and got their nanny pregnant.

The former girl band member who was known as Scary Spice, whose real name is Melanie Brown, detailed the alleged abuse in a bombshell court filing that won her a temporary restraining order Monday against Stephen Belafonte.

She said Belafonte’s brutal attacks often coincided with her career success, such as her finale on “Dancing with the Stars” and her judging work on the UK and Australian versions of “X Factor.”

Brown, 41, said it was shortly after she placed runner-up on the fifth season of “DWTS” in November 2007 that Belafonte — her husband of only five months at that point — pounced on her minutes before a live television interview.

“He was in a rage and I had no idea why,” she wrote in her statement. “He placed both of his hands around my neck and began choking me. He then slammed me down onto the hardwood floor.”

She said Belafonte punched her with a closed fist in July 2012, causing her lip to split and swell, after she and recording artist Usher taped a promotional segment in New York for the Australian version of “X Factor.”

She said Belafonte accused her of triggering his furor by flirting with Usher and threatened to release sex tapes if she reported him.

“He told me that no one would believe me because everyone thinks I’m crazy. He called me a ‘f—ing monkey,’ told me I was dumb and said that I was a ‘derelict,'” she wrote.

Brown covered for the abuse by telling producers she had an allergic reaction to shellfish, she said.

The violence continued to escalate, she claimed, with Belafonte allegedly punching her in the face with a closed fist and pushing her facedown on a carpet after she performed with the Spice Girls at the London Olympics in August 2012.

“My face actually scabbed over the rug burns,” she wrote. “Because the injuries were so obvious, and because the media had snapped pictures of me with the facial injury, (Belafonte) forced me to ‘tweet’ out that I injured myself by running in 7-inch Christian Louboutin heels,” she wrote.

She said Belafonte’s “mind games” and violence became so overwhelming she attempted suicide in December 2014.

“In a moment of emotional and physical exhaustion, I took an entire bottle of aspirin,” she said. “I immediately regretted the action and tried to call 999 (England’s version of 911), and (Belafonte) blocked me from calling for help.”

She said he locked her in a bedroom without a phone and told her to “die bitch!”

“Each time I could pry the door open and try to squeeze out, (Belafonte) would slam the door on my head,” she claimed. “I kept telling him that I wanted to get my stomach pumped and I begged him to let me out.”

Brown said she initially fell for Belafonte during a vulnerable period when she was pregnant with her second child but no longer with the baby’s father.

“I was giving birth as a single mother, my self-esteem was very low and my hormones were out of balance due to the pregnancy,” she wrote.

She said Belafonte recognized her weakness and used kindness as his way of “grooming” her for marriage.

Brown said he later hired a “quite beautiful” 20-year-old exchange student from a small town in Germany as their nanny and began sleeping with the young woman.

In the Spring of 2014, Belafonte told Brown the nanny was pregnant with his child and he wanted to have the baby with everyone living under the same roof, Brown wrote.

“I was shocked and in disbelief,” she said. “(Belafonte) later demanded that Lorraine have an abortion.”

She said he paid the young woman $300,000 for three years of nanny services without her consent.

Brown further claimed Belafonte “demanded” that she join in sex acts with “random women” he brought back to their hotel rooms.

“If I objected to participating, he would threaten to release compromising videos of me,” she wrote.

Attempts to reach Belafonte were not immediately successful Tuesday.

In an interview with TMZ.com, he claimed he was hearing the accusations for the first time and was “distraught” and worried about how they might affect their daughters.

Brown has two daughters from previous relationships and a 5-year-old daughter named Madison with Belafonte.

Brown said she finally worked up the courage to divorce Belafonte after traveling back to London to see her sick father shortly before his death.

She claimed Belafonte almost caused her to miss the last days she spent with her ailing dad because he allegedly swiped her passport.

Under the protective order, Belafonte must stay at least 100 yards away from Brown and move out of the couple’s house in the Hollywood Hills.

Brown was granted custody of the couple’s daughter with Belafonte getting no visitation until a follow-up hearing.

The court denied a request by Brown to travel outside the U.S. with the 5-year-old girl.

Brown said she’s worried Belafonte might seek retribution after law enforcement served him with a search warrant Friday but failed to locate a gun at the family’s residence.

Belafonte is not allowed to have a gun due to a prior domestic violence conviction but he allegedly kept one in a lock box in the bedroom closet, Brown’s filing stated.

“I fear that with (Belafonte’s) character trait for violence, my prior physical beatings by him, his willingness to violate both federal and state laws by possessing a handgun — he knows no bounds,” she wrote. “I believe he is extremely dangerous.”
