How Daughters Taught Her To Love Her Body – Hollywood Life

The actress reveals that she gained a new appreciation for her body through her children Rowan and Grier.

Brooke Shields is revealing how she taught her daughters to be comfortable in their own skin and how they, in turn, did the same for her. The 56-year-old has made no secret of her past struggles with body image, growing up in the spotlight as a child star. In contrast, she says that her daughters Rowan, 18, and Grier, 15, feel “proud” of their individuality.

“I think they’ve taught me more than I’ve taught them,” Brooke tells HollywoodLife. “I’ve tried to not have my insecurities spill over into them but, in order to do that, you actually have to walk the walk. In order for me to gain confidence, I focus on being as healthy and as fit as I can be. Also, just acknowledging how much my body has done for me over the past 56 years.

“I try to say to them [that] it’s not about a desired look as much as it’s a desired feel, that it involves being healthy. It’s not about weight as much as it’s about being fit and taking care of your body internally and exercising and sleeping; all those things that kids roll their eyes at when they’re younger.”

“I try to focus much more on that and they’re much more proud of their individual strengths and shapes,” Brooke adds. “And I think they’re more focused on their individuality, which I think is their generation more, from what I’ve witnessed with them.”

Brooke and her daughters created a buzz online on June 22 when the Blue Lagoon actress posted a photo of them wearing matching gingham swimsuits while vacationing in the Hamptons. The actress, who has paired up with Colgate to promote the brand’s Gum Renewal toothpaste, says that staying healthy and feeling good takes work. She insists that her teens have seen her “work really hard at” exercising and “eating right” without denying herself the food that she loves.

“I know when I work out, I eat better. I sleep better,” she says. “There’s a lot of things that [are] sort of the offshoot of that. That’s really the message for me – to celebrate who we are uniquely but also focus on health rather than a certain silhouette.”

Brooke’s beach photo with her daughters isn’t the first time that she and her offspring have delighted fans. Recently she was a proud mom, posing next to Rowan at the teen’s prom in a photo that she shared on Instagram. The actress was thrilled that the redhead decided to wear a strapless ruby red dress that she wore to the 1998 Golden Globes when she was nominated for her sitcom, Suddenly Susan.

“It was very emotional because she went down to the archive closet and picked it out herself,” Brooke says. “If I had suggested it, she’d never wear it. But, because she picked it out herself… She had no idea what the dress was. She just saw a red strapless dress and she thought that’s what she wanted to feel on her prom night. Then I told her the story and it became much more personal.”

Brooke says she has fond memories of that night that took place three years before she married Rowan and Grier’s dad, filmmaker Chris Henchy. “I felt like a ‘30s movie star,” she says of the gown that was made just for her. “I had a side part, smooth hairstyle and red lips. I felt special in it. So, the fact that she picked it out on her own was even more of serendipity and very touching.”

Who Is Fernanda Rocha? 5 Things About Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s New GF – Hollywood Life

Braunwyn Windham-Burke has found love with Fernanda Rocha, a fellow alum of ‘RHOC’. Here’s everything to know about Fernanda, including her career in fitness and close friendship with Tamra Judge.

Love is in the air for two alums of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who was just recently fired from the reality series after two seasons, has confirmed that she’s newly-dating Fernanda Rocha, 44, who appeared as a friend of the Housewives in season 6 of RHOC. The ex-Bravo stars, who are both out-and-proud lesbians, initially started out as friends, but are now a full-fledged couple. “We are close and she’s been an amazing support to me,” Braunwyn, 43, told E! News. “I’m glad I met her.”

So who is Fernanda Rocha? RHOC fans only got a glimpse into Fernanda’s life, but it’s fair to say that she’s got quite an interesting background. Here are are five key things to know about Fernanda.

Fernanda Rocha

Fernanda immigrated to the U.S. from Brazil at 23.

According to her website, Fernanda was born and raised in Brazil. After attending a top university to pursue a degree in Kinesiology, Fernanda left her native country for the United States at age 23 while she was unable to speak English. Over time, she adapted to her new country and began following her passion for fitness once she moved to Los Angeles.

Fernanda is a fitness instructor and gym owner.

Fernanda’s career in fitness began when she was employed at premiere health clubs in Hollywood and Beverly Hills, per her website. For the past 10 years, Fernanda has been the co-owner of the Art of Fitness Gym in Laguna Beach, Ca. In addition, she’s founded her very own “Fernanda Rocha Fitness” brand, which she’s used to create training programs.

Fernanda joined ‘RHOC’ as a close pal of Tamra Judge.

In 2011, Fernanda explored life on reality television when she joined season 6 of RHOC in a recurring capacity. Fernanda’s inclusion to the show was historic: she became the first openly gay cast member on the Bravo series. She was introduced at the start of the season by Tamra Judge, with whom she had a long-standing friendship with.

Fernanda’s close bond with Tamra was a prominent storyline on season 6. In one episode, Fernanda revealed to Lynne Curtin that she and Tamra, 53, kissed a year prior. Tamra later admitted that the make-out session happened, saying, “Okay, there might have been some tongue,” according to BravoTV. Sadly, Fernanda only lasted on RHOC for one season, and the current status of her relationship with Tamra is unclear.

Fernanda recently split from her wife of six years, Tessa.

While Braunwyn recently split from her girlfriend Kris and is still technically married to husband Sean Burke, Fernanda’s marriage to her wife of over six years, Tessa Rocha, officially came to an end in January 2021. According to The Sun, Tessa filed for divorce from Fernanda on Jan. 13. An insider told the outlet that Fernanda allegedly pursued a relationship with Braunwyn in October 2020 while she was still married to Tessa. Fernanda and Tessa’s divorce proceedings are ongoing, The Sun reported.

Prior to Tessa, Fernanda was in a relationship with photographer/stylist Leslie Matta. According to BravoTV, the couple announced their engagement in December 2013 but later split.

Fernanda fully embraces her sexuality.

As an out-and-proud lesbian, Fernanda is not afraid to flaunt her lifestyle on social media. Throughout this month, Fernanda has attended a number of events for Pride Month, which she’s documented on Instagram. “As a gay women, I felt so happy for being able to show my support to my LGBTQ+ community!” she wrote in one post from the Grand Marshal of Chicago Gay Pride event on June 3. “We come in all shape, colors, and sizes. It’s time to put down our blinders, stereo types, and look at each other from the inside out.”

Khloé Kardashian Responds To Shady Tweet Amid Tristan Thompson Split – Hollywood Life

Khloé Kardashian isn’t here for shady tweets about Tristan Thompson, thank you very much.

Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have reportedly, once again, called it quits. Just hours after Khloé, 36, confirmed she and the basketball player, 30, were back together on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reunion, a source told Page Six that the couple, who share 3-year-old daughter True together, amicably split a few weeks ago.

That same report claims Tristan was seen entering a private room with three women at a party in Los Angeles last week. But if the source’s claim is correct, then Tristan’s partying came after his breakup with Khloe.

Internet personality Tana Mongeau tweeted on June 20, “all i know to tweet about my birthday party last night is that tristan thompson was one of the first attendees.” She then referenced Tristan’s daughter and added, “like babe where’s true.” Tana’s tweet prompted a response from a fan who called on her to “shut the f*ck up.” The Twitter user wrote, “this screams attention-seeking at it’s finest bc you know damn well that man gon make headlines over anything pertaining to women. you’re a bird! don’t speak on True either.”

An eagle-eyed Twitter user then noticed that Khloé “liked” the tweet. So we can only assume Khloe wants everyone to mind their own business. And maybe their split wasn’t as dramatic as you might be thinking.

Khloe’s subtle reaction came after Page Six‘s source said the on-again, off-again couple split on relatively good terms. “They’re getting along. There is no drama,” the source told the outlet. “Everything is amicable and they are on the same page with co-parenting.”

The couple have been linked since August 2016. Khloé and Tristan welcomed their daughter True two years later in April 2018. Their relationship has long been troubled, spurred by Tristan’s infidelities during Khloé’s pregnancy. The two split in February 2019 due to Tristan’s relations with Jordyn Woods, but eventually rekindled their romance last August. During the KUWTK reunion that aired on June 20, the Good American founder explained the decision.

“We just really became genuine, great friends with one another and great co-parents,” she said. “He’s a great dad. It was just this natural progression. I’m not saying it’s what I would encourage other people to do, it’s just what naturally happened for him and I.” During the reunion, Khloé also revealed that she has forgiven Jordyn and harbors no ill will towards her.

“I personally don’t talk to her, but I think she’s doing really well in her personal life,” she said, later adding, “I don’t have any grudge against Jordyn. I think people make mistakes, people live, and they learn and I forgive both parties. How could I forgive Tristan and not Jordyn? That sounds asinine in my opinion.”
