Eva Longoria Wants Everyone To Know She NEEDS GLASSES.

2013 NCLR ALMA Awards

I know the pics don’t show her in glasses, but don’t tell Eva Longoria that she’s faking her prescription lenses.

Recently, she teamed up with the Australian branch of Specsavers, an optometric company that sells eyeglasses, where she looked sexy in their spec.  But not all people dug the add- some called BS on the fact that the sexy Latina needs glasses.

Journalist Jenna Clarke from the Sydney Morning Herald actually criticized the actress for pretending to have poor eyesight just to sell bifocals. Obvi, this didn’t sit well with Eva. On Monday, she took to Twitter to SLAM the writer for her accusation:

“If you had done your journalistic duty (it’s actually not that hard, a more thorough google job, or one phone call to my camp and they could have provided you any documentation) you would see that I have been wearing READING glasses since May 3, 2013. Long before Specsavers @SpecsaversAustralia called me.”

She later explains why one doesn’t see many pics of her wearing glasses!

“The reason your lazy journalist research of “googling” didn’t turn up more pictures of me on the “red carpet” is because I don’t need glasses to see far, only to READ. So unless you are in bed with me at night, or in the morning at my breakfast table reading the morning newspaper, then you probably wont find a “paparazzi” shot of me.”‘

Then she provided some shots of her looking fine in glasses.  Sorry, Jenna. Eva wins this one.

Kate Winslet Preaches More Body Positivity


It’s hard to believe that Kate Winslet, grew up with a negative self-image, but she did. And she wants the cycle of body negativity to stop.

The British actress said on last night’s episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls that she was actually bullied at school for her body, feet and clothes, which she bought on a “shoestring” budget.

“I was chubby, always had big feet, the wrong shoes, bad hair,” she said. “When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life,” Winslet admitted, while traipsing about the mountains of Snowdonia, Wales with Grylls, 41. “I only heard negatives. That’s very damaging because then you’re programmed as a young woman to immediately scrutinize yourself and how you look.”

She talks more about this and how she inundates her daughter Mia with positivity HERE. We gotta say, we’re glad Winslet is speaking out!

Raven-Simone Needs To Stop Inserting Herself Into Other Peoples’ Politics

Logo's Trailblazer Honors 2015

Raven-Symone, can you just chill out already?

The Cosby star revealed on The View on Monday that she has some issues with Caitlyn Jenner and her new docuseries I Am Cait.  And her issues seem not only narrow-minded and defeatist, but also vague and judgemental. Nice work, Raven!

“I think it’s wonderful, and yes, it needs a light being shined on it,” Symone, 29, who came out herself last year, noted of the LGBTQ community. “When I came out, I didn’t go and go hardcore and be like, ‘I’m going to save the world for LGBT…’ You’ve got to learn it. You’ve got to learn it first, and she’s not, really.”

Yeah, you just made out with a ANTM contestant and were all shady about it.  Learn WHAT first, Raven?

“Well, I think you can be strategic before you come out as well,” the former Disney star responded. “Before [I came out], I was definitely repping the community, even when I wasn’t saying this is what I was. And I’m not faulting [Caitlyn], because yes, we need [her]. It’s too fast, too soon.”

And don’t call her an activist.

 “I can’t be,” Symone said. “I learned from the real gay rights activists. I can only do what I can.”

What does a “REAL” gay rights activist even mean? Seriously, I am NOT a fan of Raven, and I bet most LGBT individuals aren’t either. GTFO, RS.

Kate Winslet Didn’t Have A Lot of Good Role Models, Apparently.

Kate Winslet at The The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals in LA

Kate Winslet is getting REAL about body image struggles that young girls face!

In an interview on Running Wild With Bear Gryll, the actress tells Grylls on the NBC show that she had no positive body image reinforcement, only disparaging comments that made her very critical of her own looks.

“When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life,” she tells Grylls. “I only heard negatives. That’s very damaging, because then you’re programmed as a young woman to immediately scrutinize yourself and how you look.”

Winslet decided to take a different approach when raising her children, including her 14 year old daughter Mia.

“I stand in front of the mirror and say to Mia, ‘We are so lucky we have a shape. We’re so lucky we’re curvy. We’re so lucky we’ve got good bums,’” Winslet notes. “And she’ll say, ‘Mommy, I know, thank God.’”

Aw, that’s freaking adorable.

Watch the candid conversation now to hear more super inspiring body image talk care of one of my favorite actresses. And let’s keep this trend going!
