Jaclyn Stapp’s Blog: I’m in the Home Stretch of My Pregnancy – and (Hopefully) Headed to the Hospital Soon!

Jaclyn Stapp is going to be a mom – again!

The wife of Grammy winner Scott Stapp is currently expecting their third child and second son together, whom they plan to name Anthony. The couple are already parents to Daniel Issam, 7, plus daughter Milán Hayat, 10. Scott, 44, also has a 19-year-old son named Jagger.

The Creed and Art of Anarchy rocker recently wrapped a solo tour, and is writing new music during his downtime. Former Miss New York USA Jaclyn, 37, is focused on CHARM, her nonprofit charity that provides education and support to underprivileged children.

The spouses revealed to PEOPLE exclusively in June that they will welcome another baby into the family, and shared gorgeous photos from their elegant “Royal Prince”-themed baby shower in October.

You can follow Jaclyn on Instagram @jaclynstapp and Twitter @mrsjstapp.

Are we there yet? Well, not quite. I went from 1 centimeter to 2, and now it’s 3! “Three centimeters, do I hear 4? Four centimeters?” Sounds like an auction!

The numbers drive me nuts because they don’t match how I feel. While this sweet child wants out, his kicks and turns — not to mention his pressure on my bladder at 2 a.m. — remind me of how ready I feel to welcome him to the family.

But we’re not quite there yet. However, there is good news and very good news!

Good news is that the baby is healthy, Daddy and kids went through the drill with the hospital tour, everyone is manning their stations, the school is notified about Milán and Daniel’s pickup, we’ve called the pediatrician and we are now standing by, very ready for Sir Anthony’s arrival.

The very good news is that God almighty is great — I still have energy! How? I can’t explain it, but I have been packing and unpacking, sometimes over-packing, then repacking. It’s even funnier with big sister and brother helping me pack and sort out the baby’s clothes.

I could swear it wasn’t this complicated packing for our two-week vacation last year. The nursery is ready, the house is safe, everything is child- and drool-proofed again. It seems like the total interior of the house is padded. Lord help me when it’s time to remove the sticky padding or the cabinet locks that chipped my nails — and especially the fort-looking baby gates that the dogs hate!

Nonetheless, Anthony is sitting cozy, hugging me tight. I imagine he will suddenly decide at 3 a.m., just as I get back in bed positioned comfortably and fall asleep into deep REM, he will decide to make his grand entrance. It’s okay — I have been as ready as a fireman for that alarm. I’m on autopilot, ready to jump into my boots and head to the hospital. Just in case, I even have Uber on speed dial.

I have been called a rough tough cream puff, and I can do this. Right now, baby is holding on, taking his time, while I am ready to make time!

The excitement is building up, and family and friends are waiting for the ball — I mean baby — to drop! Aunts, uncles, cousins and Grandmom all want a piece of Anthony. He feels like a 10-pounder, so I am sure there will be enough of him to go around.

I am just hoping after he is born, my scale will reflect that 10 lbs. plus, and that I can learn to go back to eating for one again! I can’t wait to be able to look down and see my toes again.

Franchesca Ramsey Could Soon Shake Up Late Night TV With Her Own Show

YouTube star and activist Franchesca Ramsey could be getting her own late night show.

Comedy Central ordered a pilot for her untitled project, Vanity Fair reported Tuesday. The network hasn’t revealed many details about the show, but Ramsey told The Huffington Post that the project will explore identity.

“We just feel like there’s a great opportunity there to talk about different types of people that are part of this world and part of our nation and just really finding a way to separate ourselves from what we already see on television and I’m so excited that Comedy Central has faith in this to do that in a really compelling but also funny way,” she said.

Ramsey will be an executive producer on the pilot and work with her team from MTV’s “Decoded,” which she produces and hosts. The comedian, who was also a writer and contributor for “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore,” said the new show is an evolution of the work that she’s done on “Decoded” and her personal YouTube channel, which has more than 200,000 subscribers.

She said it’s a big deal that she could potentially be running her own show on late night television, which is notoriously white and male-dominated. 

“I’m just really excited to expose people to different identities, different conversations but also to kind of reframe how they think about black women just by being myself,” she said.

Ramsey’s pilot is one of nine pilots Comedy Central ordered. The network has yet to announce its run date or whether it will get picked up for a series, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed.

Netflix Predicts HBO Will Soon Take A Page From Its Binging Playbook

As Netflix smashed expectations, announcing Wednesday that it added just over 7 million subscribers in the last quarter of 2016, CEO Reed Hastings said he expects one rival might begin taking a cue from his company soon.

Noting in a letter to shareholders that the BBC is reportedly set to “go binge-first” with new seasons of certain shows, the Netflix exec said we can “presume HBO is not far behind.”

Although HBO has been in the premium TV game far longer, Netflix has been quickly catching up with buzzy shows like “Stranger Things,” “Orange Is the New Black” and a number of others, with their episodes released all at once.

“In short, it’s becoming an internet TV world,” Hastings wrote. 

Does that mean the rumored “Game of Thrones” spinoff might land online all at once? Maybe not. Cable viewers are still an important part of HBO’s business, and in that format episodes are best released one by one, week by week. And it clearly serves Netflix’s interests for its CEO to proclaim a new age of internet-friendly entertainment.

But as Netflix inches closer to 100 million subscribers across the world, traditional networks are undoubtedly paying attention.

Bikini Fit Hacks: 3 Things You Must Do as Soon You Put on Your Swimsuit

By Leah Melby, Glamour

2015-06-09-1433884111-5945457-Belussobikiniswimstringbikiniw724.jpg

According to bathing suit expert Kirsten Sarkisian, you never put on a bikini top only once. “First, you put it on–simply put it on your body,” the founder of Belusso swimwear tells Glamour, “but do not assume it’s ready to go at this point.”

Here’s why a perfect-fitting suit can require a little bit of adjusting–and three easy steps to making sure everything is shimmied into place.

Per Sarkisian, getting the perfect fit can be broken down into three quick steps.

1. Right away, handle the straps, making them tighter or looser so that they feel secure but aren’t digging into your skin.

2. Then, manually arrange your breasts by picking them up and pulling them gently toward the center of your torso–they should be fully enclosed by the structure of the bikini top.

3. Finish by checking yourself in a mirror to see if the top is riding up too high in the back or on the sides and make slight coordinating adjustments to the straps.

If you find you’re rarely pleased with how your curves look in a bikini, there could be a sneaky suspect to blame.

“Padding can sag when it gets wet and takes longer to dry than the rest of the suit,” Sarkisian said. “A suit with a little bit of it can be a good call for women with smaller breasts, but beware. Look for suits with removable pads so you can pull it out if need be.”

Why The Itsy Bitsy Bikini Trend Isn’t Going Anywhere Anytime Soon

Hawaii gets a lot of flak for being behind on trends, but when it comes to swimwear, the Aloha state is definitely ahead of the curve.

And we know something mainland beaches don’t: cheeky bikini bottoms are about to sweep the nation.

The Brazilian bikini bottom — the barely-there style of the ’80s — has been resurrected in new and more modest ways, and this time, bikini experts say, it’s here to stay.

“The [Brazilian bikini] trend is growing,” Debbie Wilson, owner and designer of Maui Girl Bikinis, told The Huffington Post. “I don’t see it losing popularity.”

everyone

You Can Thank/Blame Social Media

Wilson has been designing all types of bikinis for 30 years. When she first opened her boutique on Maui, Brazilian-cut and thong bikinis weren’t in much demand. Now, Wilson says, they make up 75 to 80 percent of her overall sales.

The resurgence has swept Hawaii over the past five years, and signs of it are just now beginning to pop up on the mainland. Victoria’s Secret, perhaps the most mainstream swimwear brand, has introduced an “Itsy” option as well as a “Cheeky” option, and San Lorenzo, the Hawaii-based boutique that specializes in the Brazilian-cut, has recently branched out with stores in Newport Beach and Malibu as well as a pop up shop in the Hamptons — the paragon of East Coast prep and propriety.

Those in the industry say the surge in popularity may be related to the rise of social media.

Sabra Krock, creative director for the swim boutique Everything But Water, told The Daily Beast that the recent “fitness craze” is to thank for the cheeky trend, “as well as the Instagram and selfie voyeurism that’s online,” she said.

“I definitely point to Instagram as a key reason for a desire to emulate celebrities,” she said.

Once You Try It…

The trend may have only recently reignited, but Mariella St. John, marketing director for San Lorenzo Bikinis, says that this style “is one that you can never go back on.”

Today’s line-up of Brazilian-cut bikinis offers more modest designs, making the style more accessible. While veterans and daredevils might still opt for super thin thongs or the showy v-line swimsuits of the late ’80s and ’90s, more modest options like cheeky boy shorts now exist.

These new designs, Wilson says, are “turning into g-strings again, but with more details, like a waistband, or shorts that still fit you in a way a [thong] would.”

Contrary to what you may think, Wilson explained, smaller bikini bottoms have a “slimming effect” on your rear end.

“Women are starting to realize that the [smaller cuts] are more flattering,” she said.



Finding Your Fit

When choosing the right cut, Emma Wo, fashion blogger at AlohaBabe.net and Miss Hawaii 2015, says “it’s important to find a style that works well with your body type. Brazilian-cut bikinis can seem daunting at first,” she told HuffPost, “but if you’ve got curves, full-coverage bikinis can actually make you look wider.”

“When customers, who have never worn our bikinis, come into the store, we tell them, ‘We’re going to convert you,'” St. John said. When her customers find the right fit of a cheeky bikini and then go back to a traditional cut, they often tell her that the regular bottoms feel like a “diaper.”

For comparison, here’s a traditional cut next to a Brazilian cut on the same model at a San Lorenzo boutique:

slbikini

If you’re shy about jumping in to a full Brazilian bikini, Naomi Newirth, co-designer of Acacia Swimwear, says to find somewhere in between and start there — “not full coverage and not a total Brazilian cut,” she told HuffPost, “no extra sag or fabric.”

Acacia Swimwear’s 2015 collection features cheeky bottoms that still maintain moderate coverage, like the ones featured below. Bikini model Chelsea Yamase also suggests Mikoh Bikinis, for a similar style.

If you’re still nervous about making the switch, bikini blogger Rebekah Steen of Gold Fish Kiss says, “Just give it a shot. At least once. Life’s short, try it out, and get some sun on your buns. You’ll be surprised how wearing just a little less fabric on your bum makes it look just that much better.”

Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best in-between cheeky bikinis so you can try the trend out for yourself.

Too Soon? Why No Joke Should Ever Be Off-Limits

Humor is the result of the clash of the incongruous.

It’s the intersection of two independent lines of thoughts, incapable of inhabiting the same space at the same time. (“A man walks into a bar. Ouch.”)

Every comedian knows this. And this is why comedy is so important, because it can function like society’s headlamp, effectively 3D-mapping our collective perception, showing the distances between what is and what we’ve convinced ourselves is.

This is another reason why many people in this world have such a difficult time with comedians, because comedians have always been watchdogs for bullshit. (Looking at you, Fox News.) And why topics like religion have always been comedic gold, because religion — just like politics or airline food — is, at its core, incongruous with reality.

That’s why there’s no such thing as “offensive” humor. Only a personal reaction to a concept or idea with a kernel of truth which some have made the conscious choice not to accept.

Humor, on the other hand, doesn’t care.

Because humor cannot exist without truth.

This is why comedy will always hold so much power. Because if a joke works — but you don’t like it or don’t agree with it — then ultimately it is your belief system that is dishonest; it’s your worldview that is what’s out of step with reality.

And that, to me, is offensive.

Calling All ‘Frozen’ Fanatics: An Elsa-Inspired Wedding Dress Can Soon Be Yours

If you’re a bride-to-be and Elsa the Snow Queen of Arendelle is your style icon, then you’re in luck.

Bridal designer Alfred Angelo is teaming up with Disney Consumer Products to create a wedding dress inspired by the sparkly blue gown Elsa dons in “Frozen.” The dress will be available in stores in January 2015, but we have a sketch to tide you over in the meantime:

The ice-blue sheath dress will feature dramatic beading to create a glistening effect, a sweetheart neckline and a Watteau train, which cascades from the upper back of the bodice down to the floor. And you just know that singing “Let It Go” at the top of your lungs would sound a hell of a lot better while wearing something like this.

You can check out more Alfred Angelo gowns inspired by your favorite Disney Princesses here.
