Vanessa Williams is speaking out about the pressure that new moms face to get back into shape after giving birth. The mother of four tells the ‘Closer’ that her experience with weight loss after having kids differs from what women face today.
“When I had a child, I gave myself nine months to get back in shape because it took me nine months to gain the weight,” says Williams. “I think the pressure now is ridiculous. What’s in the magazines are all airbrushed, everyone is dieting like crazy, taking pictures and altering them.”
The star further explains, “My youngest is 14 and she’s right in the thick of image and pressure and trying to look like people that are featured in magazines and it’s unrealistic, unfair and damaging.”
So just what do Vanessa and her daughter do to stay in shape? “I try to do something everyday, whether it’s taking a class or jumping on the treadmill. Also, yoga, just trying to keep moving for sure.”
Vanessa Williams is the proud mother of three girls and one boy. Sasha, the star’s youngest child, is Vanessa’s daughter with former NBA player Rick Fox.

The star further explained, “If I have a post that I put up that has 300 and 50 comments on it, you best believe there’s going to be five talking about my weight, my hair, my dad, my mom, you know, who’s this, what’s that — it’s just expected. It’s a shame, it’s sad that we are subjected to it, but I guess that’s just what comes along with the game.”

Pilar Sanders must serve a week in the Collin county jail, after refusing to return her children to ex-husband Deion Sanders.
CBS News reports,
“A judge found her in contempt for failing to return their children as required by a custody agreement. The judge originally ordered her jailed for 30-days but suspended and probated the sentence, but as part of probation she must serve a week in the Collin county jail.”
Pilar recorded herself interacting with two officers from Collin county a few weeks ago.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and his co-star were two of many celebrities to attend the first day of the 11th Dubai International Film Festival last week.
It was just a few years ago that Adewale asked to be written off the hit series ‘Lost.’ At the time, the actor wanted to return to London to focus on career possibilities as a director.
Apparently those possibilities have rendered positive results as the star had a hand in creating an animated film that made its debut at this year’s Dubai festival. “It’s a traditional Arabic folklore legend that has been forgotten but is being brought to a modern audience in a new and exciting way,” said Adewale of the motion picture. “What you will see next year [when the film makes its public debut] is an animation that is really and truly pushing the bar on many levels. It’s almost as real as it can get without being real.”
Adewale’s film will focus on an ancient slave who lived a challenging life in the Middle East as a descendant of Africa. The little boy pictured will be playing a younger version of Akinnuoye in the animation. See more pictures of the Akinnuoye-Agbaje and his young co-star at the 11th Dubai International Film Festival below!
