As a gastroenterologist, Dr. Roshini Raj gets all sorts of crazy medical questions. She turned them into a book called “What the Yuck? The Freaky and Fabulous Truth About Your Body.”
Dr. Raj joined Ali to talk about some some common medical misconceptions, and the ladies got on the topic of shapewear. “I’m a mom of two,” the doctor said, “Shapewear is my best friend—at times, in limited doses.”
But, she said, shapewear can betray you if you wear it for extended periods.
“The truth is when you’re constricting everything in the abdominal area for too long, you can cause some problems.”
Among them? “Pain and discomfort, particularly for people with Irritable Bowel [Syndrome] who are prone to getting kinda gassy and bloated anyway.”
Another group that should exercise caution: people with acid reflux. “We always recommend that people wear looser clothing because if it’s too tight in the midline area, it...Read More »

Stacy Keibler has the entertainment world all aflutter after her high-profile split from George Clooney. Thankfully, Ali was quick to let the actress know that she’s better off without him.
Ali told the story about a Clooney sighting she had while having dinner with friends in Washington, D.C. They spotted each other, and George walked over to the table and kissed her. “He kissed me and I went ‘hmmm… not so great,” Ali confessed. “I don’t get hype.”
Ali wanted to make sure Stacy knew what a real connection felt like, so she grabbed her face and planted one on her. “That… that you stick with for life!” Ali proclaimed.
Stacy is already focusing on what’s ahead, namely her new Lifetime show Supermarket Superstar, which highlights aspiring food industry entrepreneurs pitching their recipe ideas to a panel of mentors. “They get the fast track to get all the tools they need to develop their product,” she says, “So they have a chance to wi...Read More »

Josh Duhamel is starring in the new movie “Scenic Route” which hits theaters this August, but the celeb is busy preparing for a different sort of role… being a dad.
The actor and his wife, singer Fergie, are expecting their first child soon. “It’s something that we’ve always wanted,” Josh says. “I’ve always had a real affinity for kids, but I’ve never had to keep them. I play with them, get them all riled up, and give them back.”
The beaming dad-to-be couldn’t be more proud about how great Fergie is doing. “My wife is handling the pregnancy amazingly well,” he says. “She looks so damn cute and she’s happy, she hasn’t been sick. It’s been really good.”
So has she had any weird cravings? “Yeah, but she had weird cravings before she was pregnant,” the actor joked. In reality, “she’s pretty conscious about what she eats and she’s stuck with it. She wanted to make sure she was feeding the baby good things.”

With a starring role in the Disney series Shake it Up, an impressive showing on Dancing with the Stars, a new album and a new book on the way, it seems like there’s nothing Zendaya can’t do. But the 16-year-old didn’t always plan to be an entertainer.
“At first I was supposed to be the first girl in the NBA,” says the 5'10" star. “That died quickly.”

She fell in love with the arts when her mom worked as a house manager at the California Shakespeare Theater. “I got captivated with it,” Zendaya says. “I was an 8-year-old who liked Shakespeare. That doesn’t usually happen.”
Her growing fame landed her a series on Disney and gave her the chance to compete on Dancing with the Stars as the show’s youngest-ever participant. She balanced schoolwork and practice and made it to the finals – finishing in second place.
While Ali said it seems like the Dancing’s sexy outfits are just held together with “crazy glue, duct tape and staples,” Zendaya insists she had...Read More »
He’s America’s most famous house flipper, and when it comes to renovating, Jeff Lewis knows what works. The Bravo star stopped by the Daily Shot studios to talk about the biggest renovation mistakes people make, and the best and worst design trends around.
First mistake? Spending too much of a renovation budget on one room. “They never get to finish the rest of the house,” Jeff says. “When you remodel a room, everything else starts to look bad. You have to make sure to spread that money evenly.”
The second mistake people make is furnishing the entire house from one store. “That’s the easy way out.” He says. “I like to mix up styles. You don’t want it to look like you just furnished your home out of a catalogue.”
Though it’s hard to keep up with the latest and greatest in design, Jeff says there are some great trends that are here to stay.
“Using sustainable materials. Things are being repurposed and I love that idea. They’re taking wood from ol...Read More »
