As I inch closer to my due date, I often find myself reflecting on the incredible capacity of the female body. I cannot believe that I’ve created, nourished and housed a little human! It hasn’t been an easy process – I’ve cried many tears and cursed my aching body countless times. However, I have never loved or respected myself more than I do now. This #internationalwomensday is a particularly meaningful one for me. I am truly in awe of all those who have taken the journey of motherhood before me, and I feel so excited to be joining their ranks. I’m also reminded of the incredible strength that women possess, which extends far beyond having children. Every day I see examples of kind women, passionate women, intelligent women, driven women. I am endlessly inspired by ladies I know and love as well as by those I’ve never even met. Thank you to all the women in my life – and to women everywhere – for never ceasing to amaze me.

In October, she announced her pregnancy writing:

“My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude,” she wrote alongside the pregnancy announcement.

My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude. You never forget the deep pain of loss. It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences. Our loss earlier this year was the darkest moment of my life. Yet, it made me infinitely more thankful for the precious baby growing inside me today. I want to take a moment to acknowledge all those struggling with miscarriage, infertility or any of the difficulties that come with bringing new life into the world. I know that these announcements can hurt. I’ve felt it all. My heart is with you and I pray that our story gives you hope. Thank you all so much for your love and support – I can’t wait to share this journey with you.

The 2019 AMAS Were All About Statements and Nostalgia

Published

on

“Less is more” was the takeaway of the 2019 American Music Awards.

The night celebrated the years most popular songs and artists, but it was the oldies that made the show resonate with audiences both inside the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles and watching worldwide.

There was plenty of nostalgia going around starting with Kesha’s first performance in 6 years that included her latest single “Raising Hell” but also her 2011 hit “Tik Tok.”

She was finally granted permission to sing her old songs following a public battle with Sony and producer Dr. Luke.

The crowd also had warm reactions to these oldies but goodies: “Green Day’s 1994 “Basket Case,” Toni Braxton’s 1996 “Unbreak My Heart,” and Shania Twain’s 1997 classic “I Feel Like a Woman.”

Plenty of statements were also made at the AMAs as artists proved that they were no longer afraid to stand up to the status quo.

The biggest statements of the night came from the three pop powerhouses, Taylor Swift, Halsey, and Kesha.

All three ladies aimed their jabs at the music industry.

Halsey’s powerful speech shaded the GRAMMY Awards following her absence from the nominees that were announced early last week.

“I am so thankful to the AMA’s because they are the world’s largest fan-voted awards show,” she said emphasizing the fan aspect.

Dynasty’s Adam Huber on Liam’s Amnesia, #Falliam Future & That Kid Storyline

Adam Huber as Liam Ridley Interview

Adam Huber plays the uber dreamy Liam Ridley, the latest addition to the Dynasty cast.

Huber scored the title of series regular ahead of Dynasty Season 3.

But even without the coveted upgrade, the heartthrob has been a fan favorite since his debut on Dynasty Season 1 Episode 15, you know, the episode where he married Fallon, a complete stranger, on a whim.

Since then, Fallon and Liam have had a tumultuous yet epic relationship.

Nothing about their relationship has been conventional.

After they overcame a love triangle with Culhane, a messy situation with Liam’s uncle, a divorce, and Fallon’s attempts at winning him back from Ashley, it seemed liked things were going to work out.

Dynasty Season 3 Episode 1 Review: Guilt Trip To Alaska

Fallon proposed to him on the Carrington lake, and despite losing the ring in the water, Liam still said ‘yes.”

But their happiness was short-lived when her tyrannical brother, Adam, clobbered Liam upside the head and locked him in the pool closet.

After regaining consciousness, Liam crawled over to the pool, fell in, and woke up with amnesia, which is where we left off when I spoke with Huber.

Huber dished about Liam’s amnesia, what’s next for their relationship, his possible revenge on Adam, and the storyline he’s dying like to explore.

Dynasty is back and with it returns all of that Carrington craziness!

Sure.

Amidst all of that, you’ve been up to series regular. Congrats. Were you expecting it? 

No, I honestly wasn’t.

There have been other people. Wakeema, whose on the show and plays Monica Colby. You know, me and her were kind of doing the same thing we were just recurring, and you kind of go until you book another show or they give you a contract.

The Epic Kiss - Dynasty

And I was testing actually on another show, NYPD Blue is doing a reboot. I got very close to that. And right around the same time, they asked me to be a series regular.

So, you know, it worked out well. I wasn’t getting on PD Blue, so they had me a series regular. No, I was expecting it. I was just kind of chilling. I was just happy to be there.

It’s a great role to have. 

Right?

Has the way you approach and prepare for the character changed now that he does have a deeper storyline and is so loved by audiences?

I have been putting, I think, more work into it. I mean, I’ve always put work into it, and definitely just trying to stay fresh and just trying to understand him.

We’re very similar, but we’re also different. You want to keep his story fresh. I have a journal that I do character journaling in.

I take what I know, and then just create a story around him.

Like, what was the relationship like with my dad? What is the relationship like with my uncle who is on the show played by C. Thomas Howell? And I do that with all the other people in his life. Does that make sense?
