Some celebrity moms have seen their families grow by having multiple children while these stars have closed up shop after having only one child.
When fans met Tamar Braxton as part of the hit reality show “Braxton Family Values,” she was adamant about not having a child at the time. Ready to finally kick off her solo career just right, the baby sibling of six wanted to focus on her singing even though husband Vince was ready to become a father. Last June, Tamar gave birth to her son Logan and insisted this will be her first, her last, and her only.

With a new year comes a whole new set of enviable Hollywood figures. While some of the lovely ladies on our list have become mainstays in the fashion, beauty and fitness worlds already, there are certainly a few new women the world should take notice of. And though staring at these gorgeous women might fill us with a little bit of jealousy, we’re also hoping it kicks us into high gear with our resolution to get it right, get it tight in 2014. So without further adieu, here’s a look at 2014’s hottest celebrity figures.
Talia Castellano, the makeup guru who became an honorary Cover Girl with the help of talk show host and comedienne Ellen Degeneres, passed away this morning at 13 years old.
Talia of Orlando Florida was fighting an aggressive, stage 4 cancer called neuroblastoma. That was in 2007 when she was 7 years old. She was in remission but for over a year but eventually the cancer came back. In 2012, the cancer spread to her bones and she developed leukemia.
During this time, Talia decided to stop wearing her wigs and rock her baldie and she used makeup to foster self confidence. Eventually Castellano started taping herself applying makeup and she became a YouTube star. One of her videos reached over 8 million views and several others over 500,000. In one of the YouTube videos Talia said that it was her dream to meet Ellen Degeneres and do her makeup. Talia asked her YouTube viewers to reach out to Ellen to help make her wish come true.
In 2012, it did. While on the show, Ellen announced that CoverGirl was inspired by Castellano’s story and decided to make her an honorary CoverGirl and also gave her a $20,000 check. That same year, Talia posted a video basically telling her YouTube followers that she had very very little chance of surviving.
She had this to say about her journey.
“Having cancer has been a gift, yet a horrible, horrible terrifying thing,” she added. “But I’ve gotten so many benefits from it … having a YouTube channel and having to inspire people and having people look up to me and explaining to you guys how I adore and love makeup — using it as my wig — and having so much self-confidence and going out to the grocery store without a wig. It’s amazing but the journey of having cancer was amazing but every journey has an end.”
Today, CoverGirl’s Ellen and Sofia Vergara shared their condolences for Talia’s family. Sofia wrote this message:
My heart and thoughts are with Talia, the most beautiful & inspiring @Covergirl ever and with her loving family and friends #RIPTalia.
We share that same sentiment. Rest in Peace Talia. Thanks for inspiring us.

Looking at celebrities, it’s quite easy to see the glitz and glam, but not the hard work it took to achieve success. There definitely are some who have it a little easier as they might come from wealth, or had a guaranteed foot in the door. There are, however, many who had to work hard to build their brand after failed ventures, personal struggles, or whatever else made their road to success bumpy.
The name of the game is longevity and it often comes by diversifying both your talents and reach. If you have been looking for ideas to grow your business opportunities, take a look at these celebs and how they grew their empires.
Celebrities seemingly live the good life with millions of adoring fans and millions more in the bank. When tragedy strikes their lives and they unexpectedly lose a loved one, we are reminded that stars are human after all and mourn just like us.
Rapper/singer/actress Queen Latifah suffered a personal loss during the early stages in her rap career. Back in 1992, the Newark native’s world was rocked when her older brother Lancelot was killed while riding the very same motorcycle his famous baby sister recently purchased for him. 20 years after his death, Queen Latifah, still struggles with her grief and said losing her brother “was like suffering an amputation.”
Most celebs are some good-looking folks. And while we enjoy their brand of attractive for as long as they’re in the spotlight, who is going to carry on that beautiful tradition in the years to come? Babies, babies and more babies. With news of some of Hollywood’s most attractive people hopping on the baby train in 2013, we decided to take a look at 15 wildly pretty couples who we can’t wait to bring a little one into the world. And no we’re not trying to perpetuate the whole baby mama/baby daddy phenomenon that’s going on, we’re just saying these folks will have some cute babes worth talking about whether they decide to put marriage before the carriage or not.

Being a curvy woman myself, I must admit that I love seeing healthy thick chicks doing their thing! As much as men like to swoon over women with a little extra to hold on to, most women appreciate ladies who can still be hot and desirable without being stick thin. We come in all shapes and sizes of sensuality, and when it comes to brick house bangers, here are 9 of my curvy girl crushes.
Colombian actress Sofia Vergara just turned 40, and her life keeps getting better and better. She celebrated her birthday with a luxurious weeklong Mexican getaway and is engaged to long-time boyfriend Nick Loeb. Her birthday celebration wouldn’t be complete without her multi-million dollar money game.
Forbes reports that her diverse and successful profile — along with $19 million in earnings between May 2011 and May 2012 – wins her the top spot on the list of the year’s highest-earning television actresses in the U.S. She beats Kim Kardashian, who came in second by $1 million.
You may have seen the actress in movies such as Four Brothers, and Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns and Madea Goes to Jail. But she shines on the ABC hit show Modern Family, which averages 12 million viewers in its third season. Vergara also reigns in Spanish and English endorsement and licensing deals and has a Kmart endorsed clothing line. Not to mention that LatinWE, the media company she cofounded in 1996, recently made $27 million in revenues.
In earning her millions, Vergara found love with American audiences without excluding her Latina roots; she also boasts a positive Q Score over twice that of the average celebrity. Forbes notes that she boasts an unrivaled appeal among Hispanics and is the biggest cross-over star since Desi Arnaz.
Vergara’s come a long way from her childhood roots on a farm in Barranquilla, Colombia. And she still has much on the table to accomplish. This summer she’s producing a reality dating show, Ready for Love, and the campy Devious Maids was already picked up by Lifetime. The show is an English adaptation of the Mexican telenovela Ellas son la Alegría del Hogar. It will star Latina leads Ana Ortiz from Ugly Betty, Judy Reyes from Scrubs and Dania Ramirez from Heroes.
