A diva is the female version of a hustler. – Beyonce

There definitely are some who have it a little easier as they might come from wealth, or had a guaranteed foot in the door.

It seems as if every week a Hollywood star gives birth then pops up on a magazine cover or runway a few months later flaunting their slender frames and sleek abs. Although some women lose baby weight faster than others, here are 15 celebs that snapped back to their pre-baby bodies in no time.
Diva and R&B singer Mariah Carey shocked the world when she announced she married her husband rapper, actor and entertainer Nick Cannon. After struggling to conceive, the happy couple surprised everyone one more time when it was revealed that Carey was pregnant with twins. Once Monroe and Morocco were welcomed into the world, the “Butterfly” singer went to work right away to lose the baby weight. Because she gave birth via Cesarean, Carey was unable to exercise right away. The current “American Idol” judge signed on to be the spokesperson for Jenny Craig and ended up dropping 70 lbs. in six months. “I realize that 90 percent of losing weight is my diet,” Carey said in an interview with Shape magazine about how she lost the extra pounds.

Every now and then, sometimes you want to break from your mundane 9-5 to pursue a side passion in a different career. Some people become painters, create crafts, write novels, all while maintaining their current professions and celebrities are no different. We’ve done this post a few years back, now let’s add to it. Here’s how these celebrities get their hustle on once they’ve stepped out of the camera’s view.
Daniel Day-Lewis – Carpenter
The Oscar winning actor, who has appeared in such blockbusters like Kings of New York, There Will be Blood, and Lincoln has a passion of using his hands and carpentry. When’s he’s not appearing in great movies, or accepting awards for his roles, he’s off cobbling shoes and building things.

You’d think that celebs wouldn’t be half interested in any type of martial arts, especially considering the fact that all celebrities have a bodyguard crew to keep them save at all times. However, there are some stars who have ventured out into the martial arts world; some do it to stay in shape while others do it for self-defense. In any case, here are 15 celebs who could hold their own if needed.
Jessica Alba is a pretty face that could knock you off your feet with her taekwondo moves.
Greetings Noirette stylistas and fashionistas! To be honest with you, this hasn’t been the most exciting week for fashion. For the most part, a lot of celebs flew overseas to London and thought they’d make their best fashion statements there. Most folks were caught out looking underwhelming, but these four celebrities wore fits that at least caught our eye and kept our attention. Time to figure out if they stood out for being hot or a hot mess. Let’s get started.
Hey hey now! Kelly Rowland attended the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in London this week where she picked up a “Woman of the Year” accolade for being “Best TV personality.” She stunned on the red carpet in this black and white Maria Grachvogel dress. The halter dress was a sleek number that gave the singer/TV personality the chance to showcase her toned arms. She kept the hair straight and sleek as well, wore a simple bangle with a few rings and large hoops and showed folks how to do the statuesque look to a T. Loving the dress, loving the hair (though I probably would have worn it up), and she just looks all around fab. Check out the back too! Steal.
It was New York City’s biggest night in fashion as the stars hit the “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art last night. All kinds of materials and looks made their way on the red carpet from our favorite folks, and we’ve got a quick look back on all the hot pieces and the stars that wore them.
Talk about a stunner! Bey came through (sans Jay-Z) in this black see-through gown with a gorgeous black and purple train. All the detailing on this one, including the stones, the feathers, and all that mesh (her hands even seem to be covered in it), just make this a jaw-dropping stunner. Shout out to the good folks at the house of Givenchy for this look.
It’s a well-known fact that professional athletes date celebrities, and some athletes seem to have made a second career out of celebrity dating! Check out these 9 athletes that just love to love celebs!
1. Joe DiMaggio
Possibly the most famous athlete-celebrity pairing of all time, and perhaps the one that set the stage for all those to follow, was the marriage of baseball great Joe DiMaggio and Hollywood superstar Marilyn Monroe. Although they were only married for a short time in 1954, their love affair marks one of the first athlete and meja celeb couples. The sweet part is that although they divorced in 1954, DiMaggio re-entered her life in 1961, spawning rumours that the two were an item again. After Monroe died of an apparent overdose in 1962, DiMaggio sent a half-dozen roses three times a week to her headstone until his death in 1999. Aww!

Some call it snap-back, others call it good genes, and there are those of us that know it’s all about hard work. But whatever way you slice it, all women want to get their body back–or an even better body–after having a baby. Celebrities seem to have an easier time bouncing back into shape with their flexible schedules, access to the best trainers, gyms and meal plans, but once in a while there’s a “real mom” who has to put in real time and effort to feel and look like herself again.
