Randy Jackson Quitting American Idol
Everything you know, love and hate about American Idol might soon be no more. No, they aren’t canceling America’s big reality competition, but it is getting a major facelift. All four judges, Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj, are rumored to be out. Randy actually confirmed that this is his last season.
Along with four new judges, Idol plans to throw out a lot of their format. No more Beatles nights, fans. This hasn’t been a great season for Idol. The cat fights and younger contestants are to blame for the switches. Contestants just don’t know the songs that they are supposed to be singing, said Hollywood Life Editor in Chief Bonnie Fuller.
There is rumor that Katy Perry is in talks to be on the new panel for next season. This could be the best decision for Idol in a long time.
Jessica Simpson & Angelina Jolie Most Powerful Moms In Hollywood
Jessica Simpson, Beyonce, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lopez are just some of Parenting magazine’s Most Powerful Moms. Simpson’s fashion empire is worth over $1 billion. Hollywood moms, like Jennifer Garner, are really prime examples of hard working and loving mothers.
Bonnie Fuller said that these moms set an example for everyday moms. They are glamorous and hardworking, but they do have a lot of help. A full staff and 24-hour nanny can’t make life very hard. Fuller said that actresses have to worry about losing work to have a family, but now Hollywood moms are the most-wanted commodity.
Pitocin Linked To Birth Complications & Lower APGAR Tests
A recent study has found that Pitocin, a drug used to induce and speed up child birth, is linked to some complications after birth. Births where Pitocin is used have produced babies that score lower on APGAR tests, tests used to check physical conditions of newborns and increased admissions to the neonatal ICU for full term babies. While there haven’t been signs of long term problems with Pitocin, concerned mommies are sounding off online.
Casi Densmore-Koon has five children under the age of 10. Pitocin was used in one of her deliveries because she was high risk. She said that the drug made her dizzy and unable to breathe between contractions.
“Pitocin is awful,” she said.
Julie Griglio used the drug with both of her pregnancies. She said it was great and would use it again. The drug company that makes Pitocin declined to comment.
This study makes a clear distinction that the symptoms are an association, not a cause and effect.
