Amber Rose Shares Results of Breast Reduction, Cellulite Treatment

Amber Rose is nothing if not if not supremely confident, but she’s also a human being with an audience of millions scrutinizing her every selfie.

So it should come as no surprise that Amber is occasionally willing to go the surgical route in her efforts to fine-tune her appearance.

And because she’s far more forthcoming with her fan base than most celebrities, Amber is happy to discuss the details of her cosmetic procedures on social media.

In a candid Instagram live stream, Rose recently revealed to her millions of followers that she’s at home recovering from a breast reduction surgery:

“I’m still in the house recovering from my breast reduction surgery, and I just wanted to give you a little [update],” said the model and activist.

“So I’m really just letting my hair grow, letting my eyebrows grow out, and just trying to rest and relax and recover. And also of course, I wanted to give you an update on my new boobs.”

Rose first announced that she was considering a breast reduction back in August, but she didn’t say much about the decision process in the months since.

(Though at one point, she revealed that she was afraid of the possibility of “lollipop scars.”)

Discussing the possibility of going under the knife on Loveline, Rose stated:

“My boobs are stupid heavy, my back hurts and I can’t wear cute lil’ shirts without a grandma bra.”

And now that she’s gone through with it seems, she’s more than happy with the results:

“I really went down a lot. So I don’t know if you guys know, but I was like a 36H, I was really, really big, and I think now I might just be a D-cup, which is really small for me,” she said on Instagram.

“I’ve been online shopping, and getting my cute little shirts, and little strapless things, and I’m just so excited to be actually be able to wear an outfit without a huge bra,”

Rose also spoke of undergoing treatment to remove cellulite, which she says has had some painful after-effects.

“My legs are still really, really sore,” she told her followers.

Hopefully, she’ll be back on her feet for this year’s Slut Walk!

Get well soon, Amber!


Rose McGowan Tears Into Golden Globes, “Fake” Hollywood Activism

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards aired live from Los Angeles on Sunday night.

But talk afterward was less about big wins for Big Little Lies and more about the theme of nearly every speech, not to mention nearly every outfit:

Female empowerment in Hollywood.

As you can see in the photo gallery above, celebrities from all industries walked the red carpet in all-black, coming together to make a statement in support of the #MeToo Movement.

Speech after speech centered on this topic, which has been at the forefront of the entertainment world for months now, ever since producer Harvey Weinstein was exposed as a sexual predator.

There were multiple standing ovations.

There were many tears shed.

There was applause all around for the brave women (and men) who have spoken out against accusers and helped drive terrible people such as Kevin Spacey and Matt Lauer out of a job.

In other words:

This was the sort of night Rose McGowan has been waiting for her entire professional life, right?

The actress came out long ago with accusations of rape against Weinstein and has finally seen these allegations proven right.

So, why didn’t she do a figurative victory dance on Sunday?

Because McGowan doesn’t care about symbolism.

She cares about action.

The star took to Twitter to slam her acting peers in response to the following Tweet from Asia Argento, an actress and singer who also says Weinstein raped her.

“No one should forget that you were the first one who broke the silence,” she wrote to McGown, adding:

“Anyone who tries to diminish your work is a troll and an enemy of the movement. You gave me the courage to speak out. I am on your side until I die.”

Replied McGowan:

“And not one of those fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes would have lifted a finger had it not been so. I have no time for Hollywood fakery, but you I love, .@AsiaArgento #RoseArmy.”


Argento went on to note that neither she nor McGowan were invited to attend the Golden Globes.

This isn’t the first time McGowan has been critical of her fellow celebrities. She is nothing if not passionate and outspoken.

Late last year, for example, McGowan Tweeted about the idea for stars to wear black as a fashion/anti-harassment statement in a series of since-deleted posts.

“Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem,” she wrote at the time, adding:

“You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy.”

Shortly after McGowan’s comments, Streep told Entertainment Tonight that she was “hurt to be attacked by” McGowan and insisted she knew nothing at all about Weinstein’s bad reputation when it came to women.

“I did not know about Weinstein’s crimes, not in the ‘90s when he attacked her, or through subsequent decades when he proceeded to attack others,” Streep said in response.

“I wasn’t deliberately silent. I didn’t know. I don’t tacitly approve of rape. I didn’t know. I don’t like young women being assaulted. I didn’t know this was happening.”

For the record, and for what it’s worth, Streep attended Sunday night’s ceremony.

She wore a black gown and she took activist/the Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Ai-jen Poo, as her date.


Rose Marie Dies; Veteran Actress Was 94

Rose Marie, a veteran actress and show business legend best known for her role on The Dick Van Dyke Show, died Thursday at her home in California.

She was 94 years old.

The late star’s publicist has confirmed the sad news.

Marie’s extensive career started as a child singing sensation in the 1920s and 1930s.

In an interesting note, she was the last surviving entertainer to have charted a hit before World War II. Pretty cool, right?

The artist and actress landed her first major TV role in 1960 on the CBS sitcom My Sister Eileen, prior to rising to prominence alongside Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore.

Marie portrayed Sally Rogers on all five seasons of The Dick Van Dyke Show; she was nominated for an Emmy Award in 1963, 1964 and 1966.

“We were a tight-knit, hard-working crew,” she told The Hollywood Reporter in 2004, adding at the time:

“I couldn’t wait to get to the set each day.”

Marie appeared on several television shows and films, and was also became active in animal welfare issues as the years went on.

Born Rose Marie Mazetta on August 15, 1923, the multi-talented star began acting and singing at age three, performing on stage at New York’s Mecca Theater.

She was dubbed “Baby Rose Marie the Child Wonder” and was often heard on the NBC Radio Network.

In the 1930s, Marie toured in vaudeville; and in the 1940s, she performed in nightclubs and theaters, even becoming a co-headliner on opening night of the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas.

Later in life, Marie gained new fans as a frequent celebrity on Hollywood Squares. How frequent?

Marie appeared on 629 episodes of the game show!

She received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2001.


All in all, Marie’s amazing career spanned nine decades and was chronicled in the documentary “Wait for Your Laugh,” which was released earlier this year.

Tweeted Carl Reiner, who created The Dick Van Dyke Show, upon learning of Rose’s passing:

I was so sad to learn of the passing of Rosemarie. There’s never been a more engaging & multi-talented performer.

In a span of 90 years, since she was four, dear Rosie performed on radio, in vaudeville, night clubs, films, TV, & Vegas & always had audiences clamoring for “more!!”

May she rest in peace.


Meryl Streep to Rose McGowan: I Didn’t Know About Harvey Weinstein!

Rose McGowan has zero chill, and that’s usually a good thing. We love hearing her tear Harvey Weinstein a new one.

Sometimes, however, that admirable passion gets a little misplaced. The result is Rose McGowan slamming Meryl Streep, of all people, basically accusing her of having been complicit in Weinstein’s monstrous deeds.

Meryl Streep is speaking out, saying that she’s very hurt by Rose’s words, and endeavoring to make things clear.

Rose McGowan was outspoken in accusing Harvey Weinstein of rape — and she’s certainly not alone.

Too many actresses have come forward, identifying Weinstein as their harasser or their rapist.

Salma Hayek spoke of Weinstein as a “monster,” and says that she wonders if it was only her friendships with other influential members of Hollywood that prevented Weinstein from raping her.

Some times, a person escapes from a sexual predator because they have the right friends. Others just get lucky.

And others … unlucky.

Rose McGowan has spoken loud and clear against Weinstein. Unfortunately, some of her ire was misdirected at her fellow actresses.

“Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest.”

We would counter that, surely, they did not know. A lot of people have no idea that there’s a monster in their midst.

“YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change.”

All awards are fake, really.

“I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa.”

Marchesa, of course, is the clothing line by Weinstein’s wife. While many feel sorry for the woman who most assume never knew of her husband’s monstrous deeds, Rose McGowan has been less sympathetic.

Rose has since deleted the tweet.

Meryl Streep addressed Rose McGowan’s criticisms in a lengthy letter, published in The Huffington Post.

“It hurt to be attacked by Rose McGowan in banner headlines this weekend, but I want to let her know I did not know about Weinstein’s crimes, not in the ’90s when he attacked her, or through subsequent decades when he proceeded to attack others.”

That’s what we figured.

“I wasn’t deliberately silent. I didn’t know. I don’t tacitly approve of rape. I didn’t know. I don’t like young women being assaulted. I didn’t know this was happening.”

Sexual predators go to great lengths to cover up their crimes.

Meryl then goes on to explain how little contact she’s had with Weinstein.

“I don’t know where Harvey lives, nor has he ever been to my home.”

That’s good for her.

“I have never in my life been invited to his hotel room.”

For many actors, exchanging scripts and even auditioning in hotel rooms isn’t uncommon. Some wonder if, in light of these uncovered abuses, that should now change.

“I have been to his office once, for a meeting with Wes Craven for ‘Mustic of the Heart’ in 1998.”

That’s … nearly 20 years ago.

“HW distributed movies I made with other people.”

“HW was not a filmmaker; he was often a producer, primarily a marketer of films made by other people — some of them great, some not great.”

Weinstein did sometimes assume a hand-on role in films, but that makes him a demanding producer, not a filmmaker.

“But not every actor, actress, and director who made films that HW distributed knew he abused women, or that he raped Rose in the 90s, other women before and others after, until they told us. We did not know that women’s silence was purchased by him and his enablers.”

Sometimes, survivors are shocked to learn that other people didn’t know what happened to them. When something consumes your life, it’s hard to imagine that others could be so blind.

“HW needed us not to know this, because our association with him bought him credibility, an ability to lure young, aspiring women into circumstances where they would be hurt.”

Yes, predators have a vested interest in appearing innocent and personable.

“He needed me much more than I needed him and he made sure I didn’t know. Apparently he hired ex Mossad operators to protect this information from becoming public.”

We’ve heard about that.

“Rose and the scores of other victims of these powerful, moneyed, ruthless men face an adversary for whom Winning, at any and all costs, is the only acceptable outcome.”

Meryl then talks specifically about what people are doing to protect survivors from the wrath of the men who want them silenced.

“That’s why a legal defense fund for victims is currently being assembled to which hundreds of good hearted people in our business will contribute, to bring down the bastards, and help victims fight this scourge within.”

“Rose assumed and broadcast something untrue about me, and I wanted to let her know the truth.”

It’s clear that Meryl is speaking with compassion, here.

“Through friends who know her, I got my home phone number to her the minute I read the headlines.”

That was a good move to make.

“I sat by that phone all day yesterday and this morning, hoping to express both my deep respect for her and others’ bravery in exposing the monsters among us, and my sympathy for the untold, ongoing pain she suffers.”

Perhaps Rose McGowan was following Uma Thurman’s advice about waiting until she calms down before speaking up.

“No one can bring back what entitled bosses like Bill O’Reilly, Roger Ailes, and HW took from the women who endured attacks on their bodies and their ability to make a living.”

Sad but true.

“And I hoped that she would give me a hearing. She did not, but I hope she reads this.”

Meryl’s statement continues:

“I am truly sorry she sees me as an adversary, because we are both, together with all the women in our business, standing in defiance of the same implacable foe: a status quo that wants so badly to return to the bad old days, the old ways where women were used, abused and refused entry into the decision-making, top levels of the industry.”

And that, she says, is where the real problem lies.

“That’s where the cover-ups convene. Those rooms must be disinfected, and integrated, before anything even begins to change.”

Change can be a lengthy process, but it’s better to take your time than to rush and let horrible people slip through the cracks.
