The Drs: Pregnant Lingerie Model
The Doctors kicked off their Friday, March 13 episode with their Friday News Feed. They started by talking about a lingerie model named Sarah Stage who has been causing quite a controversy after showing off her incredibly fit pregnant body and tiny baby bump. She’s continued to model throughout her pregnancy but admitted that she still has some unhealthy cravings.
Sarah joined The Doctors and shared that she’s feeling great. She was eight and a half months pregnant and you could hardly tell. She shared that she gives in to her cravings occasionally, eating unhealthy food in moderation. She said she’s never known her body fat percentage and Dr Jennifer Ashton explained that they don’t track and don’t care what a pregnant woman’s body fat percentage is. She said they mainly look at the growth of the size of the uterus, which should roughly correspond with the number of weeks pregnant the woman is. They also keep track of maternal weight gain, and Sarah has gained roughly 20 pounds which is totally normal.
The Drs: Fit Pregnancy
Sarah said as a mom-to-be, a healthy baby is her number one priority. Dr Ashton said the only person’s business of how a pregnant woman looks is hers and her doctor’s. Dr Drew Ordon said to take it as a positive message to eat right and continue to work out, even when you’re pregnant. Dr Ashton said pregnancy is not a disease, so you don’t have to stop working.
The Drs: 50 Cent Son Modeling Contract
The Doctors then moved on to talk about how rapper 50 Cent‘s 2-year-old son recently signed a modeling contract worth $700,000. 50 Cent said the money would go into a trust until he’s 18 years old. His son recently walked the runway at L.A. Fashion Week with his mom, Daphne.
Dr Travis Stork said companies are doing anything possible to get their names out there, so it’s understandable why this happened. It also helps that his son is absolutely adorable. Dr Rachael Ross pointed out that 50 Cent is basically teaching his kid to earn his own money, and get a head start.
Dr Stork said that it would be a problem if the kid was overworked, but he could just be lending his image.
The Drs: R.I.P. Sam Simon
The Doctors moved on yet again to talk about the loss of Sam Simon, the nine-time Emmy Award winning comedy writer and executive producer of The Simpsons. He died at age 59 after battling terminal colon cancer since 2011. He was a devoted philanthropist and animal lover. Dr Stork shared that Simon actually gave away around $100 million because he said the one thing after he received the diagnosis that made him feel good, was helping others.
Dr Ashton said the lifetime risk for colon cancer is about one in 20 and 90% of colon cancers are diagnosed in people over the age of 50. It’s incredibly important to get tested for colon cancer, just like Dr Ordon recently did. The average age to begin screening is 50, but if you have a family history of colon cancer, often doctors will begin screening earlier.
The Drs: R.I.P. Richard Glatzer
The Doctors also shared that co-writer and director of Still Alice, Richard Glatzer, died at age 63 after battling ALS since 2011. Julianne Moore won an Oscar for her leading role in the movie. Glatzer is survived by his husband Wash Westmoreland, whom he worked with on the movie.
