Just got great news!!!! I am a type 2 diabetic nand in 2016-2017 & 2018 my blood pressure was 142/80 & my A1C (which measures blood sugar for the past three months) was 6.6 and the doctor put me on #metformin … today my blood pressure is 117/78 & my A1C is 5.4 . The doctor excitedly said “OHMYGOD what did you do? You’re not even prediabetic!” I know these numbers are because I have been off #sugar since March 2018. When my son Jeffrey asked “Mommy if you die who’s going to be my bodyguard” I knew I had to make lifestyle changes or I would die. I wanted to share this good news with you to say THANKYOU to each person who texted, posted and dm’d me encouragement throughout my road back to health. I feel so good right now I could scream. Just want to encourage you that this can be done. You have people who love you and need you to be here. Live for you! Live for them!♥♥ #thankyoujesus #joy #workinghard #sugarfree #sugarfreelife #sherrishepherd #feelsgoodtofeelgood #takingcontrolofmyhealth #nomoremetformin #healthiswealth #kickingdiabetesass

Australian Comedian Tommy Little Injures Hand During On-Air Stunt

Australian Comedian Tommy Little Injures Hand During On-Air Stunt

Well, that didn’t go as planned.

Comedian Tommy Little found himself the victim of a stunt gone during an appearance on the Australian daily news program The Project over the weekend.

Little attempted to break a plank of wood in two on the show but instead, walked away with a hurt hand.

“So I thought to finish off the rubdown, Hammish if you wouldn’t mind,” Little said before attempting to punch the wood.

When it didn’t break, Little immediately doubled over in pain.

“Do it again! One more time, come on!” said the co-hosts, prompting Little to throw one last punch.

Thanks for all your concerns about my stupidity on last night’s show. You can swipe to see my hand today (and a comparison shot of my left hand that’s not busted up). If it’s broken I might need a handjob to fix it but until then a few whiskeys seem to be doing the trick.

Again, the board remained uncracked and Little screamed out in pain.

Little shared a video of the incident on Instagram, showing off his injury.

“Thanks for all your concerns about my stupidity on last night’s show,” he wrote on Monday. “You can swipe to see my hand today (and a comparison shot of my left hand that’s not busted up).”

Little said he was still unsure if his hand was broken, but was treating it with the help of some alcohol.

“A few whiskeys seem to be doing the trick,” he added.

Cher to Launch Genderless Fragrance Her First Since 1987 It Completely Expresses Who I Am

Cher to Launch Genderless Fragrance Her First Since 1987 It Completely Expresses Who I Am

After more than 30 years, Cher is finally introducing a new fragrance to the world.

The Grammy Award-winning artist announced her latest endeavor with ScentBeauty, the world’s first multi-brand e-commerce platform for bespoke fragrances, the day after celebrating her 73rd birthday. Cher’s new signature fragrance, called Eau de Couture by Cher, marks the star’s big return to the industry after her Uninhibited perfume became discontinued in 1987. But this time, Cher took a different approach to selecting the perfect scent.

“This is a genderless scent. I made it for people who love perfume and want to smell good and for people who feel that it’s part of who they are,” she said in a press release of the fragrance, which features notes of vanilla, bergamot, neroli, jasmine and vetiver.

She added: “I like vanilla. It’s very touchy-feely. It makes you want to hold yourself.

Amy Schumer Addresses Critics Who Slammed Her for Returning to Work Two Weeks After Giving Birth

Amy Schumer Addresses Critics Who Slammed Her for Returning to Work Two Weeks After Giving Birth

Amy Schumer is dealing with mom shaming the way she handles many things in her life: by leveraging her signature humor.

The new mom — who gave birth to her first child, son Gene Attell, on May 5 — was at the receiving end of criticism from some of her social-media followers after she returned to the stage for the first time since Gene’s arrival and performed a stand-up set on Sunday night.

While most comments were positive and supportive toward Schumer, 37, others slammed the comedian for returning to work two weeks after giving birth.

“Already???? That’s insane!!! And inhumane. Contract or not you need to be allowed at least 6 weeks for maternity,” one comment read, while another fan posted a shocked-face emoji alongside the message, “Take some time.”

“I’m sorry. What?! Didn’t you birth a human like 5 minutes ago?” a third wrote.

While the Trainwreck star didn’t address any of the naysayers directly, she did respond to a few of her famous pals, like Jimmy Kimmel‘s wife, writer and producer Molly McNearney.

“And … here comes the mom shaming … ughhhhhhhhhhh,” wrote mother of two McNearney, 41, to which Schumer jokingly replied, “I’ve always wanted to be mom shamed!!!!”

“Every room is a pump room if you put your mind to it,” she further quipped in response to Jessica Yellin expressing that she “can only imagine what a pump room looks like at a comedy club.”

Another follower enthused, “You can’t keep a good woman down!” Schumer’s powerful response? “Oh no, you can’t.”
