There was a very personal dilemma Zonnique Pullins dreaded when she gave birth, which any mom delivering a baby can surely relate to. She didn’t want one specific bodily function to occur.
For first time mother Zonnique Pullins, part of giving birth was “nasty” because she was concentrating on not going number two during her number one experience in life. The muscles used during labor to push out a baby are the same ones used to defecate, and Z didn’t want her boyfriend Bandhunta Izzy to see her soil herself while delivering their baby daughter on Dec. 15. She got real about what labor is really like during as she returned to FOX Soul’s The Mix on Jan. 6, saying she willed herself into not pooping while giving birth.
Co-host Anton Peeples asked the 24-year-old to “Tell all the moms out there what the experience is really like?” and Z got real about the process of giving birth. “Um, the experience is…it is really nasty! We will start there. I didn’t want to sh*t the whole time. I was like, ‘Don’t sh*t, don’t sh*t!’ Cause I don’t even fart in front of my boyfriend in real life. Stuff like that is really nasty to me,” the “Patience” singer explained, adding about Bandhunta, “He’s just watching it and saying little comments and it is really nasty.”
Zonnique revealed that the delivery of her daughter wasn’t what she had envisioned. “So it wasn’t what I was expecting. I would say it was a lot easier than what I expected. My water broke, I was so happy about that ya’ll. I wanted my water to break. So um that was very exciting for me and um it was pretty smooth,” she detailed.
“I feel like my baby was like, you know very close down. I didn’t have to push for long but the epidural. Ladies! You need it, I am not even going to lie, like the epidural made me feel like, I mean the contractions hurt so bad ya’ll. The epidural made me feel a whole lot better, that is all I am going to say,” Z advised. Worrying about soiling herself aside, overall Zonnique did say of the birth, “It is a really beautiful experience.”
Now that her daughter is past the newborn stage, her looks are starting to become more defined. “The baby is just so precious guys, just so perfect. I am spoiling her already, I am trying not to spoil her but I can’t like help it! I want to say she looks like me but she is starting to look a lot like her dad, in that case,” Zonnique gushed.
Speaking of Bandhunta, he’s been there for Z as a great dad except there’s one thing he won’t do. “He’s been stepping it up, but he is not on diaper duty guys! I change all the diapers and you know he told me before she came into the world that he wasn’t going to change any diapers and I was like, ‘Oh no, you are going to change diapers!’ I haven’t got him to change one diaper!”
And of course she has the full support of her mom, Tiny Harris, 45, who is over the moon about her new granddaughter. “She is spoiling her to the max ya’ll. I call her the other day and I told her I miss her and she said, ‘Oh I miss my baby too!’ And I was like, ‘Well, she didn’t say she missed you, I miss you!’ So that is what is going on right now with my Mom. All she cares about right now is my baby!” As a first time grandmother, who can blame Tiny for being so doting!
First Lady Fashions: See Iconic Looks From Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Jackie O, & Now, Dr. Jill Biden
Dr. Jill Biden becomes first lady today, Jan. 20. And with that, she joins a league of fashionable FLOTUSes like Michelle Obama and Jackie Kennedy. See their most stunning outfits of all time.
Their influence in the White House rivals their husbands. And while they’re in office, first ladies take the opportunity to wear remarkable fashion with the world as their stage. Whether it’s glorious gowns (Michelle Obama), smart suits (Hillary Clinton), or pretty pumps (Jacqueline Kennedy), each FLOTUS has had their signature look. Now, Dr. Jill Biden joins their ranks.
There’s a reason she was called “The First Lady of Fashion.” Whatever she wears, Michelle kills it. During her eight years in the White House and in the years since, “Miche,” as husband Barack Obama calls her, changed up her style several times. Whether it’s athleisure, sleek leather looks, or subdued sheath dresses, her outfits were (and are) almost all winners. Just look at this red gown she wore to her husband’s second inauguration!
The nation let out a collective gasp when Michelle arrived at the inaugural ball following Barack’s 2013 swearing-in ceremony in a ruby red chiffon gown with velvet detailing and a halter neck. She paired the Jason Wu creation with sparkly bangles and those bangs. President Obama joked at the time that Michelle’s new hairdo was “the most significant event of his second inauguration.”
Dr. Biden isn’t known for her fashion prowess, but she’s never seen without a stylish outfit. The former second lady — now incoming first lady — loves a coordinating skirt suit or figure-hugging dress fit for the office. Jill turned heads at the October 23, 2020 presidential debate when she arrived in a floral Dolce & Gabbana dress to support her husband. She light blue cocktail dress with nude Jimmy Choo pumps and pearls. But what got people talking was her protective face mask. It was made out of the same fabric as her D&G outfit. How chic is that?

Rachel Uchitel has finally revealed what happened on the night that shocked the sporting world in the second and final part of HBO’s Tiger docuseries. In the Jan. 17 episode, Tiger Woods’ 45-year-old former mistress described what happened on Thanksgiving night 2009 when the golfer’s then wife, Elin Nordegren, discovered that the tabloid rumor about their affair was true.
Rachel admitted that, just days before, she and her lover “did everything to try and stop” a National Enquirer story exposing their secret romance. One of the tabloid’s reporters had spotted her going to visit Tiger’s room in a Melbourne hotel during the Australian Masters and – despite the couple’s best efforts – the magazine insisted on publishing the article.
At the time the secretly philandering golfer had a golden boy image. The father-of-two conspired with his mistress to convince Elin that there was no truth to the story. He even put the two women on the phone with each other, according to the documentary.
“We had an extensive, 30-minute conversation, Elin and I, convincing her that I was not having a sexual relationship with Tiger,” Rachel said. “We talked about how I knew Tiger, how I knew his friends, how and why I was in Australia.”
Elin appeared to believe Rachel and Tiger and, two days later, Rachel said she and the golfer wished each other a Happy Thanksgiving, relieved that they had gotten away with it.
“Between this stupid story and the phone call with Elin I remember thinking, oh my God, we’re going to slide right over this,” she said. “Two days later it was Thanksgiving. Tiger and I texted throughout the day, saying that we had a lot to be grateful for. We had gotten away unscathed in what could have been a complete nightmare.”
In fact, that night Rachel said Tiger sent her a text message saying, “You were the only one I ever loved.” “I remember just feeling that things had never been better between us and then he told me that he was taking an Ambien and going to sleep,” she said.
But then the night took a dramatic turn. “When I got another text from him, I was kind of surprised,” she said. “What came through was something like, ‘When am I gonna see you again?’ And then the phone rang. I answered saying something like, ‘Hey babe, I thought you went to sleep.’ And, instead of Tiger’s voice, it was Elin. And she said, ‘I knew it was you.’”
That night would become infamous after Tiger crashed his car into a fire hydrant near his Florida home and reports swirled that a marital bust-up had been the cause, with Elin using a golf club to smash his car window.
Tiger’s life spiraled out of control. He went into rehab for sex addiction, divorced Elin and became the butt of talk show comedians after numerous women came out of the woodwork, alleging they were his mistress too.
Rachel, who maintained her silence for more than a decade until this HBO documentary, was targeted by the paparazzi. “This story was so huge, this was the end of my life as I knew it,” she said. The two-part documentary, Tiger, is available on HBO and on the streaming service, HBO Max.
