Knock, Knock! Who’s There?
Blogger Amanda Lauren is an overnight ‘celebrity’ as she wrote not one, but two extremely controversial articles in the past 2 days. In the first one, Amanda basically says that she feels ‘blessed’ that her former (mentally ill) friend had died – you can read about it HERE. The second article written by the blogger and published on xoJane pertains more to our niche, as the newlywed says that the key to a successful marriage is ‘looking hot’. More from Daily Mail:
A woman has controversially claimed that a wife should ‘stay hot’ for her husband to maintain a successful marriage in return for expensive vacuum cleaners and extra leeway when running late. Amanda Lauren, who lives in Los Angeles, said in addition to her marriage vows at her recent wedding, she also made an additional promise – to look good for her husband.
In the essay, entitled Staying Hot For My Husband Is Essential To A Successful Marriage, she writes: ‘When we were married a few weeks ago in front of our families, friends and a Rabbi, I vowed to stay hot for [my] husband.’ Amanda, who did not comment on whether her husband has made a similar promise, said the ‘decline of your physical appearance’ can reflect badly on a relationship.
In one of her most controversial claims, she writes: ‘I’ve always wondered why so many women let themselves go in relationships. I see the look on my husband’s face when I come out of the bathroom, ready for a night out, or the way he checks out my butt on the way to Pilates class. Having an attractive wife makes him happy. They say “Happy wife, happy life,” but I’m happiest when my husband is happy. If men can’t help but be visual creatures, I need to oblige. And while I’m not sure if his friends are jealous so to say, they do acknowledge he has a hot wife.’

This is a first: Plus-size model Ashley Graham (29) plays Joe Jonas’ love interest in the new DNCE video ‘Toothbrush’. Check the steamy video below!
On how she got the job:
The DNCE team reached out to me and said that Joe personally selected me for the video and didn’t have anyone else in mind for the role. How could I say no to that?!
On playing the love interest as a plus-sized girl:
I work so hard to challenge conventional beauty standards. So often we see the typical “video girl,” who’s definitely not a size 14/16. It doesn’t accurately portray what our world looks like, especially because the average size woman is a size 14. It’s really important that all industries celebrate diversity, especially diverse body types.

On losing weight by eating mostly fruits and veggies and only 20% normal food:
“When I started on X-Men, I had been training and doing regular personal training and trying to eat in a healthy way. Losing weight was not the goal, but rather a byproduct of her desire to become healthier all around. “My intention was to just get as fit and as healthy as I could be, for myself…I started working out every single day, and then I also started getting into eating 20-80, where 80 percent of your diet is fruits and vegetables and 20 percent is whatever. So, that can be any kind of meats or breads or anything else, but mostly fruits and vegetables.”

‘Just because we’re plus size, doesn’t mean we have to prove that we’re healthy, just as someone who is smaller than us or average size doesn’t have to prove they are healthy. We should be able to exist in our bodies. I am technically healthy but my body is no more valid than someone’s who isn’t."

On being criticized for promoting unhealthy habits:
‘Just because we’re plus size, doesn’t mean we have to prove that we’re healthy, just as someone who is smaller than us or average size doesn’t have to prove they are healthy. We should be able to exist in our bodies. I am technically healthy but my body is no more valid than someone’s who isn’t.’
Tess also appeared on This Morning yesterday, where she stated:
I do believe health is not an indicator of size. Our body’s are our business, if I am unhealthy in 20 years that is my business. I guess I should be flattered people around the world are worried about my health, but I am happy and healthy.
