Jenna Jameson just answered all of your burning keto questions on instagram

Case in point: her newest Instagram post, where Jenna went ahead and answered the most common questions she gets from fans-and her fellow keto dieters should definitely take notes (she's lost 80 pounds since starting the diet in April, after all).

If you're on the keto diet and you're still not following Jenna Jameson on Instagram, IDK what you're doing, but you've gotta get on that.

Case in point: her newest Instagram post, where Jenna went ahead and answered the most common questions she gets from fans-and her fellow keto dieters should definitely take notes (she's lost 80 pounds since starting the diet in April, after all).

Here are all the deets: According to Jenna, she still intermittent fasts (6 p.m. to 11 a.m.)-but only for five days a week. And as for working out on the keto diet, Jenna says she definitely doesn't credit exercise for her weight loss-that's all keto. "I only began lifting weights and a bit of yoga this last month," she says.

 

When asked how long she plans to stay on keto, Jenna says the diet is a forever thing. "It makes me feel strong and sharp," she says. "Why would I want to go back to feeling like a sloth?"

But apparently even the keto queen herself has her vices-she loves "sweet cream Coffee-mate"-adding that her morning drink of choice is coffee with sugar-free Coffee-mate and stevia. (Jenna's definitely mentioned this coffee hack before in earlier diet breakdowns. Another one of Jenna's fave drinks? Fresca.)

Jenna's daughter Batelli also (albeit indirectly) came up in her post when she revealed readers often ask her if the keto diet affects her milk supply (she's currently nursing Batelli). "No, but I recommend not doing keto until your baby is eating solids and breastfeeding," she writes. "Just as a precaution. All mamas supplies and nursing journeys are different."

(That's actually pretty good advice, tbh-while it's not necessarily harmful for your baby to breastfeed on keto, that doesn't mean you should do it without also making sure they get their fair share of nutrients from other sources.)

Lastly, Jenna tackled the ever-popular question of plateaus-specifically what to do if you hit one (a.k.a., your weight loss has stalled) on the keto diet. "I cut out dairy for a few days and it works like a charm," she wrote.

Clearly, Jenna's got this keto diet thing down pat-and according to her plentiful before-and-after photos, it shows.

Taraba APC guber candidate receives 5,000 UDP defectors

The defectors, including local government and ward officials, had earlier left the APC and followed the former Minister of Women Affairs, Sen. Aisha Alhassan, to the UDP.

Alhaji Sani Abubakar, the All Progressives Party (APC) Governorship Candidate in Taraba, has received more than 5,000 members of the United Democratic Party (UDP) and other political parties in the state who defected to the APC.

The defectors, including local government and ward officials, had earlier left the APC and followed the former Minister of Women Affairs, Sen. Aisha Alhassan, to the UDP.

Receiving the defectors on Saturday in Jalingo, Abubakar said with the publication of the list of the party’s candidates for various positions, all issues and grievances arising from the recent primaries have been laid to rest.

He appealed to all party members to close ranks and face the task of delivering the party in 2019.

The governorship candidate said that the party had commenced the process of reconciliation by reaching out to some of the former governorship aspirants.

“With the publication of list of candidates, the issues surrounding our party primaries have now been resolved and we have already initiated the peace and reconciliation process,’’ he said.

He underscored the need for the party to take over governance to save the state from its present miserable situation of lack of development and disunity.

“It is good that you have realised your mistakes in time and have decided to return home in your numbers.

“Let me assure you that the task ahead of us is enormous; we should not be distracted by a UDP or anything else.

“I can assure you that most of the former aspirants are ready to work with us to rescue our dear state,” Abubakar said.

Former Secretary of the UDP, Alhaji Adamu Kata, who led the defectors, said they retraced their steps in the interest of the state and described UDP as a distraction from the task of rescuing the state.

He appealed to all party members who left for the UDP to return to APC because UDP has no future in the state.

PDP fires back at El-Rufai for calling Peter Obi a tribal bigot

PDP fires back at El-Rufai for calling Peter Obi a tribal bigot

In a statement which it issued on Twitter, the PDP asked El-Rufai not to heat up the country with his words.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has fired back at the Kaduna state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai for calling it Vice-Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, a tribal bigot.

The Kaduna state Governor, in a post on Twitter on Friday, November 9, 2018, said  “Peter Obi is a tribal bigot. He was widely quoted on national television that the SSS was right to detain me for 48 hours in an hotel in 2014 on the grounds that ”El-Rufai has no business being in Anambra State as it is not Katsina State”! I sued the SSS and awarded N4m damages.”

 

PDP reacts

In a statement which it issued on Twitter, the PDP asked El-Rufai not to heat up the country with his words.

The party said “Governor @elrufai should not attempt to export the kind of inciting and inflammatory statements that have led to conflagration and bloodletting in his Kaduna state to our national political firmament. @OfficialAPCNg.

“From @elrufai comment, Nigerians now know those behind the series of smear campaigns and spurious allegations against our Presidential candidate, @Atiku and his running mate, @PeterGregoryObi.

“Instead of fixating on our party and the soaring popularity of our Presidential candidate, @atiku we expect @elrufai to show remorse that he was part of those who brought in the @MBuhari administration, which has inflicted so much pain on Nigerians in the last 3 and 1/2;years.”

 

Face your problems

The PDP also called on El-Rufai to face “the myriad of problems he has caused in Kaduna state for which the people have resolved to vote him out and stop his attempt to further foul the nation’s political space by making comments capable of stoking religious and ethnic division.”

 

Doyin Okupe, the former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan also reacted to El-Rufai’s comment, calling him a rabid religious midget.

Hilary Duff drank her placenta in a smoothie—but you really shouldn’t do that

On the latest episode of Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy podcast, the 31-year-old opened up about what it was like to give birth-and that meant also talking about eating her post-birth placenta by putting it in a smoothie,

Hilary Duff recently welcomed her second baby and first daughter, Banks, with boyfriend Matthew Koma. And after giving birth, she did what tons of other celeb moms have done-she ate her placenta.

On the latest episode of Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy podcast, the 31-year-old opened up about what it was like to give birth-and that meant also talking about eating her post-birth placenta by putting it in a smoothie, according to E! News. (Apparently Hilary also added all sorts of berries and fruit juice to it to make it less…placenta-y.)

 

Turns out, actually delivering the placenta was "not that fun," but she went on to say that the placenta smoothie was the “most delightful smoothie [she's] ever had.” Hilary added, “I haven’t had a smoothie that delightful since I was 10 years old. It was calorie-filled with juice and fruit and everything delicious.”

The placenta talk didn’t stop there, as she said she also turned the placenta into ice cubes for future smoothies. (Note to Matthew and Hilary's 6-year-old son Luca: Check what you're grabbing out of the freezer, boys.)

 

Wait…should I eat my placenta too?

TBH, Hilary admitted being a little skeptical about eating her placenta at first. (Good instinct, girl.) But ultimately, rumors that consuming placenta could help with postpartum depression and bleeding convinced her to give it a try.

Unfortunately, there's really no proof that eating your placenta has any benefit at all. In fact, most doctors say eating your placenta is totally pointless-or, worse-case scenario, potentially harmful.

A 2016 case study released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention revealed that one 5-day-old infant became sick after the baby's mother took placenta pills (a.k.a., placenta that had been dried, ground up, and encapsulated). The baby contracted a bacterial infection called group B streptococcus (GBS) which is found in the vagina or rectum of one-quarter of healthy women.

Contamination is the main issue with ingesting post-birth placenta. "There is always concern for infection, and there are concerns about how the placenta is handled and stored post-birth," Kecia Gaither, M.D., previously told WomenesHealthMag.com-that's whether you ingest it in pill form or eat it in a smoothie.

Overall, Hilary said the scariest part of the birth was "surrendering" to the fact that she just wasn't in control anymore. "I had to keep reminding myself that my body was made for this and can do this," she said.

Good advice-but still, don't eat your placenta.

Noah Centineo was accused of ghosting–what is that again?

To make it all the more cringe-worthy, Busy told James Corden about Noah's not-so-great dating game…while Noah was sitting right next to her.

Brace yourselves-this one's going to sting. Netflix sweetheart and good guy Peter Kavinsky of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (a.k.a. Noah Centineo) has been accused of ghosting-and he did it to actress Busy Phillips' friend nonetheless.

To make it all the more cringe-worthy, Busy told James Corden about Noah's not-so-great dating game…while Noah was sitting right next to her.

It all went down on Wednesday when the pair appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden and the host asked Busy if she would ever pair one of her friends up with Noah.

 

That's when Busy dropped this bomb: "Actually, he was kind of chatting with a friend of mine, but then he ghosted her,” prompting a boo from the audience.

At first, Noah said he didn't know who she was referring to, but when she clarified it was "one of my writers on my show,” his reaction said it all. "Ahhh!" he said and the two laughed it off.

What is ghosting anyway?

Sure, it seems innocent enough-even kinda adorable-when the internet's boyfriend Noah Centineo cops to it. But if you've been ghosted before, well, then you know it totally sucks.

The New York Times noted in a 2015 article that the term, obviously, stems from the word "ghost." It's used as an explainer for someone who was once a regular in your life and goes MIA without any explanation.

And according to a 2014 poll by YouGov, more than 10 percent of 1,000 U.S. adults have ghosted someone as a means of breaking up with them.

Yeah, so, it blows.

What should you do if you've been ghosted?

The only real answer here is to straight-up move on. (You can read about these six women who ghosted their fiances if you want to feel better about your life, though.)

Rachel Sussman, L.C.S.W., previously told Women's Health that women should thank their lucky stars if they get ghosted-because it's probably a sign the guy wasn't worth your time anyway. (You're breaking my heart, Noah!) "Know that if you were in a relationship with that guy and there was a problem, he would probably handle it in the same way," she says.

If you're tempted to reach out-just to make sure your ghoster is still, you know, alive, Sussman recommends sending a casual text telling him you hope he's okay and that you'd like to see or hear from him again soon.

But if he doesn't reply within four days-move the eff on. If he reappears later on? Proceed with caution-but know that he's probably either bored or looking for a booty call, she says. Harsh, but if you've been there, you know it's so, so true.

Reminisce enjoying fatherhood in a pic showing his cute daughters

Reminisce enjoying fatherhood in a pic showing his cute daughters

Reminisce is in love with his daughters as one celebrates her birthday. It has been eight years being a father and he seems better for it.

Reminisce is having a great time being the father to two beautiful daughters.

Both are captured in a picture the rapper shared on Instagram celebrating the birthday of the pair.

"Happy 8th birthday Motunrayo!!!! I actually can't believe I have been a Father for 8years. Couldnt find a solo pic of You, and since I didn't post fatih on her 4th, I kuku just balance am.       I LOVE YOU GIRLS WAAAAAAY TOO MUCH."

 

Reminisce has received good reviews following his acting in Kemi Adetiba's 'King of Boys'.

Why Nollywood needs to put more rappers on the big screen

Reminisce's scene-stealing role as Makanaki, the underboss of the Lagos underworld, in Kemi Adetiba's 'King of Boys', highlights how rappers can be a resource pool for Nollywood if tapped properly.

While there has been no shortage of danger men in Nollywood, Reminisce's brings a fresh and authentic portrayal to it.

On his acting debut, the award-winning rapper (known on the streets as Alaga) might have just opened the door for Nigerian rappers to be on the big screen.

In the movie, iLLbliss gives a commendable performance as a street hustler who plugs Makanaki into a high-profile heist in Lagos.

Buhari, Tinubu, others to meet over bribery allegations against Oshiomhole

Buhari, Tinubu, others to meet over bribery allegations against Oshiomhole

Oshiomhole has been criticised by some APC members following the outcome of the party’s primaries held recently across the country.

President Buhari, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu and other party leaders are expected to meet to decide the fate of the ruling party’s chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.

Oshiomhole has been criticised by some APC members following the outcome of the party’s primaries held recently across the country.

Various groups in the ruling party have also called for his resignation.

Some state Governors have also accused Oshiomhole of working for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Bribery allegations

According to Vanguard, Oshiomhole was reportedly invited by the DSS for questioning on Sunday, November 4, 2018.

The daily also said that the spy agency told the APC chairman that some Governors wrote a petition against him.

The Cable reports that Oshiomhole was quizzed for nine hours on the allegations that he received bribe to manipulate the APC's primary elections across the country.

On the bribery allegation

Speaking to Punch, a member of the APC National Working Committee (NWC), said “The fact that Oshiomhole is under investigation for allegedly collecting money from aspirants is bad for the image of the APC government which claims to be fighting corruption.

“It is for this reason that the NWC members are being asked (by interested parties) to push for the suspension of the APC chairman pending the outcome of the probe. The President’s body language and actions in the coming days will determine Oshiomhole’s fate. For now, we are still considering it but we don’t want to make any hasty decision until we are sure that we have the President’s backing.”

Tinubu meets Oshiomhole in France

A source who also spoke with Punch, revealed that Tinubu went to France to meet with Oshiomhole on Thursday, November , 2018, ahead of the planned APC leaders’ meeting.

The source said , “Tinubu and Oshiomhole met in Paris on Thursday over attempts by governors and some members of the NWC to remove the party chairman. You will recall that it was Asiwaju who paved the way for the emergence of Oshiomhole as the chairman when Chief Oyegun wanted a tenure extension.

“Now that he has come under probe by the DSS and is being asked to step aside, he has run to Tinubu to save him. It remains unclear what their strategy will be to put a stop to the probe.”

Tinubu had publicly endorsed the leadership style of the embattled APC chairman, saying that he cannot be removed.

There had been reports in the media that some Governors were gathering the support of other top lawmakers to push for Oshiomhole’s sack.

Buhari is very interested

There are reports also, that President Buhari is very particular about solving the ongoing crisis in the ruling party.

According to the source, “The matter is receiving attention at the highest level. We cannot pretend, the situation involving our national chairman is already in public domain.

“His invitation and subsequent interrogation by the Department of State Services, is an indictment if you ask me; but you cannot pronounce a man guilty without giving him the right of fair hearing.

 “The leadership meeting will take place because as you know, we don’t have a Board of Trustees in place. Mr. President as the leader of the party, who in fact, has personally taken over the process of dealing with the post-primary crisis, is convening the meeting to deal with all these issues.”

Oshiomhole is back in town

In his reaction to reports that Oshiomhole might have absconded from Nigeria, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu said that the APC chairman has returned.

“The APC chairman is back in the country as scheduled. This is contrary to speculations that he was running away. He has been postponing the trip due to the party primaries and  submission of candidates’ names to INEC,” he added.

Adams Oshiomhole was reportedly asked to resign as the APC chairman by the DSS.

Reports say he refused to resign, saying that he still enjoys the confidence of President Buhari.

By-election: PDP recruiting thugs, fake observers — APC alleges

The APC made the allegation in a statement issued by Femi David, an official of the party in Omu-Aran on Saturday.

Ahead of the By-election for Ekiti/Irepodun/Isin/Oke-ero Federal Constituency in Kwara, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has allegedly accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of importing thugs to disrupt the exercise.

The APC made the allegation in a statement issued by Femi David, an official of the party in Omu-Aran on Saturday.

The APC also accused the PDP of recruiting fake election observers, monitors and officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

“In its desperation and characteristic manner to subvert the will of the people, the PDP has been recruiting thugs and fake election observers to disrupt the exercise.

“The thugs and fake election observers are to be strategically placed in the strong hold of the APC candidate, Mr Raheem Olawuyi AKA Ajulopin.

“The PDP has been importing thugs from Rivers, Delta and other neighbouring states to intimidate and harass voters in order to scuttle the exercise, having sensed imminent defeat in the by-election.’’

According to the APC, most of the thugs are presently being camped in one of the hotel owned by a stalwart of PDP with the full support of the state government.

The APC urged security agents, especially the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris to swing into action by mounting surveillance in and around the constituency to forestall the breakdown of law and order during the by-election.

“APC hereby put the people of the constituency on alert to report any suspicious move to the security agents in order to have a hitch free exercise..’’

It warned that no amount of intimidation, harassment and hooliganism would deter the people from voting out the PDP on November 17.

“The PDP no longer has hold on Kwara, the people must be allowed to exercise their franchise without any inhibition.

“The APC remains the party to beat in the election, importing thugs to scuttle the election will amount to an exercise in futility.’’

In a swift reaction, the PDP Chairman in Irepodun Local Government Area, Alhaji Saheed Oyelowo said that the allegations were mere fabrication and remained in the realms of speculation.

According to him, we are not in government at the national level, we are only controlling Kwara, so how can we mobilise thugs from other states.

He also reiterated PDP’s commitment to a credible and peaceful election.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has published the name of Senator Hope Uzodinma as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo state.

This is coming after the INEC published its provisional list which did not carry the name of any APC governorship candidate, according to Punch.

Vanguard reports that INEC published Uzodinma’s name following a decision by a court to strike out a suit filed by the Imo Governor, Rochas Okorocha’s faction.

A source who spoke to the daily also said “Immediately, the court struck out the order by the Okorocha’s faction stopping the name of Senator Uzodimma, from publishing as the candidate of the party.

“The judgement was taken to the National headquarters of INEC, and an order was given that the name of Hope should be pasted immediately.

“When the order came, to INEC in Owerri, the administrative head was not on sit but the legal adviser received the order from the National headquarters and he went on. “They have just acted not as in their own power but according to the power of the court.”

Uzodinma vs Nwosu

According to reports, the APC National Working Committee (NWC) had earlier submitted the name of Senator Uzodinma as the party’s governorship candidate to INEC.

The decision of the party to pick the Senator also caused rancour in the Imo state chapter of the APC, as the state Governor’s son-in-law, Uche Nwosu was dropped by the party’s leadership.

Nwosu has constantly declared that he is the authentic APC governorship candidate in Imo state.

He also revealed that he filed a court order restraining INEC from accepting any other name from the APC other than his name.

The APC NWC had earlier cancelled the governorship primary election which was conducted on October 1, 2018 by the Ahmed Gulak led  Election Committee, which saw Uzodinma emerge as winner.
