How All Those Beautiful People At The Met Gala Got Ready

13 Things You Need To Know About 13 Reason’s Why: A Mom’s Guide

If you have a teenager or a preteen, chances are you’ve heard about 13 Reasons Why and your kids are hounding you to watch it. If you haven’t heard about it, chances are, they’ve already watched it.  It’s what’s going on right now, so that’s just the reality.

Okay, that didn’t happen. It was something a time difference of six weeks or something. But my memory recalls the previous version because for years, I was positive that women like this only exist to make me feel like a sack of rotten bananas. It’s nothing personal against Heidi – she’s a beautiful woman blessed with the genes of a goddess. And there are plenty of other women just as evil (I’m looking at you, Blake.) But every once in a while, someone in the limelight is brave enough to remind us that no, that kind of post-maternity bounce back is NOT normal. Dancing with the Stars’ Petra Murgatroyd became one of them when she posted what her body looks like eight days after giving birth to her. Spoiler alert: It’s not the body you see on DWTS.
