Ashlee Simpson: Beautiful In Black

Pregnant Ashlee Simpson & Evan Ross Lunch In Studio City

Expectant mama Ashlee Simpson stepped out with husband Evan Ross for lunch in Studio City, Calif. on Tuesday (May 12). Looking beautiful in a black maxi maternity dress, the singer-reality star, 30, enjoyed some sushi during their outing.

The following day, the parents-to-be worked out at the Tracy Anderson gym in Studio City.

On Mother’s Day, the newlyweds were seen with Ashlee’s 6-year-old son Bronx. The trio stopped for a snack run at a gas station in Calabasas.

The couple – who were wed Aug. 2014 – are expecting a girl. Ashlee welcomed Bronx with her ex-husband, Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz.

Daphne Oz: The Baby Weight Isn’t Pouring Off

NovDecCover (1)

The Chew star Daphne Oz graces the November/December 2014 issue of Fitness and opens up about daughter Philomena, 7 months, her secrets for losing the baby weight in a healthy way, and her workout tips for instant energy.

On what surprised her the most after having her daughter: “That you still look six months pregnant once you’re home from the hospital. Your body does not instantly bounce back. I don’t own a scale, because it would make me neurotic, but I thought I knew where I’d be when I went for my first doctor appointment a few weeks after giving birth. I’d lost only 10 pounds!”

On not rushing to lose the baby weight: “It’s a priority, but it’s one of many. I’m breastfeeding, so my priorities include eating to nourish my baby, gaining muscle tone and feeling good. It’s about being back in charge of my body. The weight isn’t pouring off, but I figure that it takes nine months to have a baby and it’ll take at least that long for it to come off.”

On her workout routine as a new mom: “I figure out how much time I have and adjust my routine to fit. Philomena loves being in the stroller or carrier, so that’s how I’ll get a walk in. I run about four miles three to four times a week, and I intersperse that with half-hour online workouts. I love the Ballet Beautiful videos; they’re intense and strenuous but not hard on your joints. I also love Inhale Yoga With Steve Ross. And the Physique 57 DVDs, too. They’re great because I can work out while my daughter is in her bouncy seat.”

House Music Pioneer Frankie Knuckles Has Died

Frankie Knuckles, one of the pioneers of house music, died at his Chicago home on Monday afternoon, his longtime business partner, Frederick Dunson, confirmed to The Chicago Tribune. He was 59.

Knuckles was born in New York City, where he became a disco deejay in the 1970s. He moved to Chicago in the late ’70s and helped change the sound of dance music as the premiere deejay at the underground Warehouse nightclub. He is largely credited with helping to build house music – the electronic dance genre birthed in Chicago.

He opened up the dance club the Power Plant in 1983, and later traveled the U.K. to play and mix records at multiple clubs. He later formed Def Mix Productions with fellow deejay David Morales and produced mixes for pop stars, including Madonna, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and Diana Ross.

Knuckles released his first album, Beyond the Mix, in 1991 which spun the singles “Workout” and “The Whistle Song.” He won a Grammy in 1997 for remixer of the year, non-classical.

Knuckles continued to make deejay appearances throughout the 2000s, but had to slow down after being diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. According to Rolling Stone, his right foot was amputated in 2008 due to a bone disease exacerbated by diabetes.

Knuckle’s cause of death has not been released, but a statement is expected to be released Tuesday, according to NBC 5 in Chicago.
