8 Famous Women Allegedly Fired For Getting Pregnant

Hilary Duff is pregnant—which is awesome. [My inner-Cathy disagrees! -- Editor] However, her pregnancy might have cost her a plum role in an indie flick. Hilary had been set to play bankrobber Bonnie Parker in “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde,” a re-imagining of the classic outlaw tale. This would have been a big deal, considering that the role was played by heavy-hitter Faye Dunaway in 1967. However, the makers of the new version say they are recasting, suspiciously close to when Hilary announced that she is preggers. A source with the film said, “Hilary won’t be available until next June. If we could wait we would.” Ouch. [Jezebel]

After the jump, other stars who allegedly lost work because they got knocked up.

Eating Placenta? It’s Mmm-Mmm-Good!

Several states have since enacted laws requiring a hospitals to fork over the placenta if a new mother wants to take it home. This is good news to the ears of “professional placenta preparers.” Mostly women, these folks usually have backgrounds in working as doulas and/or an interest raw food or vegan food. Many professional placenta preparers disintegrate the placenta into pill form, but there is also talk of placental shakes and placental jerky. (Apparently the placenta needs quite a bit of spices for flavor.)

But the question is: is eating a placenta good for you? Keep reading »
