Singer Ciara was one of the well-heeled attendees at the CFDA & Vogue Fashion Fund Celebration event in NYC last night. I recently spoke with an associate of Ciara’s who gave some insight into why Ciara doesn’t announce her pregnancy.
“She’s not making the announcement yet because she’s still working,” said the insider. He added: “No one will book her for concerts or nightclub appearances if they know she’s pregnant.”
That makes sense.

On Saturday, pregnant socialite Kim Kardashian Instagram’ed a photo of her swollen feet caused by mild edema.
Edema in pregnant women is a build up of fluids in the extremities (hands, arms, feet, legs and face). Pregnant women retain more water, especially in the late 2nd or early 3rd trimester.
Swelling in the feet can be caused by wearing constricting shoes and clothing; standing for long periods of time; consuming a diet high in salt (sodium) and caffeine. Eating a diet low in potassium.
Prevention of edema in pregnancy includes avoid standing for long periods of time; wear comfortable and loose-fitting clothing (maternity clothes); wear support hose to reduce swelling in feet; eat a healthy diet and drink lots of water (at least 8-10 glasses a day).
Notify your physician/OB/GYN if swelling in your arms, legs or face persist for more than 24 hours and doesn’t improve with rest or elevating the affected part.
According to an unsealed federal indictment, a Baltimore jail inmate has sired 5 babies with 4 female guards at the Baltimore City Detention Center, The Baltimore Sun reports. Those guards were named in the indictment, along with 9 of their co-workers, for enabling a prison gang’s drug trafficking and money laundering enterprise behind bars. Baltimore was the backdrop for the critically-acclaimed HBO TV series The Wire.
TV personality and Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson is down with the swirl. If you recall, Kendra was formerly one of Playboy magnate Hugh Hefner’s three girlfriends. But she dumped Hef (and his money) when a fine brother came along.
Not only did Kendra remove Philadelphia Eagles WR Hank Baskett from the dwindling pool of straight black men, but she got herself impregnated by him too.
But before you say she’s a smart gold digger, Kendra’s no ordinary run-of-the-mill jump off. She left behind Hefner’s untold millions for Baskett, who recently signed a $1.4 million one-year contract with the Eagles, thus making him one of the poorer wide receivers in the league — after his agent and accountant get their cuts.
At some point, Mr. Baskett, who will tie the knot with his baby mama later this Summer, will become known as “Mr. Wilkinson” since he’ll eventually be living off of her money anyway.
Congrats to the happy couple!
