Lena Dunham Commemorates the 9-Month Anniversary of Her Hysterectomy with Nude Selfies

Today is National Leathercraft Day, National Relaxation Day and National Lemon Merengue Pie Day. It’s also the 9 month anniversary of my hysterectomy. I’ve never celebrated the 9 month anniversary of anything and I realized last night why that number feels so funny- I won’t ever do it the way I planned to. My body is mostly healed and every day I find a new bruise on my heart, but today I offer myself gratitude: from the most pained place, I somehow knew to choose myself. The purest glint of who we are and know we can be is always available to us, calm and true at our center. My friend Paul named my uterus Judy, and when she was being uppity we called her out, hence the tattoo on my ribs, which hurt like fuck even through the pain meds: #RIPJudy. Today I give thanks for Judy, for her graceful exit and for this body, which is stronger than I’ve ever given it credit for. Happy Giving Birth To Myself Day.

Lena Dunham is celebrating everything her body has accomplished in the nine months since having a hysterectomy to end her endometriosis pain.

The writer and actress, 32, shared three nude photos to commemorate the anniversary of her surgery. She specifically picked the nine-month mark because it’s how long she would have carried a child, if she still could.

“I’ve never celebrated the 9 month anniversary of anything and I realized last night why that number feels so funny — I won’t ever do it the way I planned to,” Dunham wrote on Instagram.

The Camping creator said that she’s feeling stronger physically but continues to work through the mental battles.

“My body is mostly healed and every day I find a new bruise on my heart, but today I offer myself gratitude: from the most pained place, I somehow knew to choose myself,” she wrote. “The purest glint of who we are and know we can be is always available to us, calm and true at our center.”

Dunham also revealed the nickname she gave her now-departed uterus.

“My friend Paul named my uterus Judy, and when she was being uppity we called her out, hence the tattoo on my ribs, which hurt like f— even through the pain meds: #RIPJudy. Today I give thanks for Judy, for her graceful exit and for this body, which is stronger than I’ve ever given it credit for,” she said. “Happy Giving Birth To Myself Day.”

Kylie Jenner Shows Off Her Massive Handbag Closet - and the Birkin Bag Shes Saving for Stormi

Kylie Jenner Shows Off Her Massive Handbag Closet - and the Birkin Bag Shes Saving for Stormi

Most celebrities have certain shelves dedicated to their favorite pieces (see Mariah Carey’s massive shoe wall), but it’s not every day we see a celebrity dedicate an entirely separate closet to their shopping addiction. Kylie Jenner just shared an intimate look inside her handbag closet — and the selection is so vast, it has it’s own room!

Jenner, 21, posted a new video to her YouTube channel of her purse palace, letting fans see her immense collection of Hermès Birkin bags (we spotted at least 23 Hermès pieces!), vintage Prada and the entire Louis Vuitton x Supreme collaboration she owns.

In the video, she reveals that the one purse she would save from her house during a fire would be her crocodile Hermès Birkin (calling her collection “investments”).

While she also calls out her Dalmatian-print and all-black Birkins as some of her favorites, one that has special meaning is the mini pink Birkin Kourtney gave her, because it’s going to be her 6-month-year-old daughter Stormi Webster‘s first purse.

“Kourtney gave me this, which I think is super cute. I was really surprised because I feel like Kourtney never really cares about Christmas gifts, so when she gave me this last year it was really special,” says Jenner. “This one I’m definitely going to let Stormi wear probably when she says, ‘Mommy I want to carry a purse.'”

Some many think it’s extravagant to gift a child a designer bag, but Jenner grew up carrying only the best. Throughout the video she shows off her mini Louis Vuitton and Prada bags her mom Kris Jenner gave her and sister Kendall Jenner as “super babies.” And Jenner revealed that she’s passing those down to Stormi as well.

She also shares other purses given to her by her family members, including a crystal Judith Leiber lipstick handbag sister Kim Kardashian West gave her and a matching mini lipstick clutch from her mom Kris. She says Kim’s bag is “special” to her and plans on wearing it out soon.

While she’s only been collection Birkin’s “for a minute,” her already robust collection will only grow from here —Forbes‘ just named her one of America’s richest self-made women thanks to her lip kit business which turned into a $900 million busin

All About Omarosas Husband John Allen Newman a Pastor Who Worked on President Obamas Campaign

As the shocking claims from Omarosa Manigault Newman new book about President Trump continue to make headlines, some are wondering about the man behind the woman — her husband, Pastor John Allen Newman.

Omarosa, 44, married John, her second husband, at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., in April of last year — and afterwards brought members of her 39-person bridal party to the White House for an impromptu wedding photo shoot.

Here are five things to know about Newman.

1. He is a pastor.

John is the head pastor at the Sanctuary of Mount Calvary baptist church in Jacksonville, Florida. It’s actually something the couple have in common: Omarosa told PEOPLE in 2016 that she was an assistant pastor at Weller Street Baptist Church in Los Angeles.

2. He’s a Democrat who worked for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.

John is a Democrat who worked on Jesse Jackson’s presidential campaign from 1984 to 1988, as well as former President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, according to his church’s website.

During Obama’s presidency, John remained in close contact with members of the White House staff and attended briefings with senior staffers as well as with President Obama, the website adds.

3. He proposed to Omarosa in front of his congregation.

John proposed to Omarosa in front of his congregation in July 2016. The couple, who met while Omarosa was teaching at Howard University, became engaged after dating for less than a year, Newsweek reported.

4. He popped the question with a 5-carat diamond engagement ring.

Omarosa showed the custom ring off to PEOPLE in 2016, calling it “magnificent” and “spectacular.”

“He got it designed by a friend and Atlanta-area jeweler. I said to him, ‘This is an engagement ring?!’ And he said, ‘That’s engagement, wedding band and anniversary!’ I know he really wanted to make a statement with the ring and he did.”

5. They make their relationship work by putting politics aside.

Omarosa told PEOPLE in 2016 that her relationship with John could be “very difficult” due to their political differences.

“We’re the most unique political couple in
