Thanksgiving is always a time to celebrate with family and friends. For Madonna, this year’s celebration was no different as she got to spend it in the company of her six children.

The 64-year-old is not fond of posting her family photos, but this year’s Thanksgiving was quite different as she wanted the world to know how grateful she is for her children. The pop star posted a collection of photos from her family’s holiday of Instagram, featuring her and the children, which she captioned, “What I’m thankful for.”

The first image on Madonna’s photo carousel was of her with her oldest child, Lourdes Leon, who is 26 years old, whom she shares with her ex-husband Carlos Leon. The second photo featured the actress appearing all glammed up alongside her 6 children, Lourdes, Rocco, David, Mercy, Stella, and Estere. The mother of six rocked an all-black lace corset dress posing alongside Leon, who wore a black outfit to the match.

Also, Rocco was in a suit, while David was seen donning a sky-blue turtleneck in the company of Mercy, who stands out in a green dress. The twins, Estere and Stella, who were adopted in 2012 in Malawi, were spotted playing with some DJ gear while spending time together at the family hangout.

Madonna adores her children

It is no secret that the Grammy winner admires her children and loves being a mother. To celebrate her children, she got her first tattoo in 2020 at the age of 62. Detailing the inking process on her Instagram, she revealed that the wrist tattoo contained the initials of each of her children.

Madonna has always wished for a large family and values her time with her children. The singer spoke candidly about her adoption process in a 2017 interview with People. “It’s inexplicable,” she explained how she felt meeting her adopted children. “It’s like saying, ‘Why do you fall in love with the people you fall in love with?’ You look into the eyes of somebody; you feel their soul, you feel touched by them – that’s it.”

“It’s like they were always here,” she disclosed how close her children are with her and themselves. “It didn’t take long for them to get acclimated. … And they’ve learned, in time, that I’m their mother and nothing is going to change that.”

Madonna supports her children’s career

Madonna continues to show undaunting support for her children’s chosen career path and even makes tough choices to allow them to grow. She had to relocate her whole family to Lisbon, Portugal to support David’s football passion.

“Any woman who is a soccer mom could say it kind of requires you to have no life in a way, because things change from week to week and games change from weekend to weekend — sometimes they’re in the city, sometimes they’re not, and we would never know until Thursday night whether they’re on Saturday or Sunday, if at 12 or later,” Madonna revealed to Vogue Italia in 2018 of the decision to relocate. “It’s impossible to make plans, and then you feel like you’re not being fair to your other kids, or being fair to me!”

Ellen once shared that she started watching Hallmark movies after her husband, Jack Bannon died in 2017.

Ellen explained, “I was away with John in Austria and all I did was talk about being on Hallmark. So when we got back, he called his agent and asked, ‘What do we have to do to get Ellen in a Hallmark movie? All she wants is one line.’” So, it finally happened! Ellen added about the experience, “I was so thrilled to do it. When I got there, everybody included me. People were so kind and respectful, and they knew everything I’d ever done. They weren’t even born when I was doing television!”

Thanksgiving marked a break for the country and a chance to gather around the table, enjoying good food and good company. But since eating is such an integral part of the festivities, Jeopardy! co-host Mayim Bialik used this opportunity to discuss body shaming and eating.

She shared a powerful and emotional discussion on TikTok in which she opens up about her own insecurities. Along the way, she encouraged her 3.7 million followers to enjoy themselves this holiday season, as it was meant to be enjoyed. Hear what she has to say here.

On November 17, a week ahead of the big Thanksgiving celebrations, Bialik took to Instagram with a candid video. The clip has the text “I see you’re going back for seconds” across it while Bialik is seen at her home wearing a plain black shirt and her signature glasses while her hair was cut short into a fluffy bob.

“Like many women in our culture, I struggle with body dysmorphia and many issues surrounding food,” she said in the video. Body dysmorphia refers to a mental condition where a person worries about their appearance and their perceived visual flaws. Both men and women of any age can be affected but it is particularly common in teens and young adults. Bialik continued, “You bringing it up doesn’t make it better and I’m going to enjoy seconds, yes, thank you.”

Bialik is no stranger to the spotlight thanks to her work on The Big Bang Theory. She’s also familiar with pressure through her neuroscience studies. But it is with a different kind of intensity she opens up about her doubts and hardships splitting Jeopardy! hosting responsibilities with Ken Jennings. The two are often compared, a fact she’s admitted to being very much aware of.

She also faces anxiety, a nervous disorder that causes excessive unease that can cause panic attacks. Meditating has become an important part of her routine to help combat some of her anxiety, along with small but important examples of self-care like enjoying tasty food and embracing music – and even creating music, even if it’s just whistling.

Patrick Duffy recently returned to the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful to reprise his role as Stephen Logan. To tease the upcoming episodes, he compared them to one of his most popular shows, Dallas. Patrick starred in Dallas as Bobby Ewing for years.

The 73-year-old explained, “It’s what we would have done as the season-ender. This is like the Oil Baron’s Ball fight, where everybody [destroys] the room, or everyone ending up in the swimming pool at Southfork. It’s a real clash of titans.”

Even more exciting, Patrick got to act alongside his real-life girlfriend, actress Linda Purl. Linda is playing his character’s love interest during his two-episode arc. The first episode aired on Wednesday and the final episode will premiere on Friday, Nov. 28.

While there will be a lot of drama surrounding his character, Patrick added that Stephen’s main goal is always being a good father. He shared, “Stephen’s primary goal, no matter what happens, is the welfare of his three daughters. The way I played that scene was ‘I’m here for you and he isn’t. Feel the difference between somebody who really does care for you and this person that’s putting you through this angst once again.’”

Patrick said he felt right at home on the set of the show, especially around his TV daughters. He concluded, “Back in the day, whenever I would walk into makeup, they would just squeal ‘Daddy! Daddy!’ and give me a hug. So I stepped into the makeup room, and it hadn’t changed. Kelly saw me in the mirror and went ‘Daddy!’ And in comes Heather and it’s ‘Daddy’s here!’ And Jennifer comes in… They’re like schoolgirls and it’s so refreshing.”

10 Disturbing Secrets About How Your Favorite Foods Are Made

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

UPDATED 11/28/2022

Food has become an increasingly hot topic in recent years. When it comes to nutritional facts and the overall level of organic utilization, these are things that people need to know. People want to eat as healthy and as wholesome as they can.

Of course, homemade recipes are the best because you know what’s going into your meals. But did you know even your ingredients might be suspect to questioning?

1. Shredded Cheese

Cheese reigns as one of those foods that one simply cannot do without. Did you know cheese is mixed with cellulose to keep it from clumping up? Cellulose meaning refined wood pulp, meaning you’re munching on super minuscule pieces of wood.

2. Oreos

Retired nutritionist Alissa Helton has publicly shared a little secret about the creme filling in Oreos. She states that Crisco is highly processed and made from ingredients that are genetically modified.

3. Bread

Bread typically contains L-cysteine, which is made from duck feathers, cow horns, and hog hair. It’s a preservative that allows your bread to last for more than a week.

4. Figs

Fig newtons, anybody? You may want to keep them indoors though. Wasps pollinate inside figs, the female births her larvae into the fig, and dies in there because the plant doesn’t allow an exit. The fig plant eventually digests the body of the wasp and all that’s left is remaining wasp protein. So, if you’ve eaten a fig, you’ve technically also eaten a wasp. Surprise!

5. Ranch dressing

The ingredient titanium dioxide is found in both ranch dressing AND sunscreen. I don’t know about you but I definitely don’t want sunscreen on my salad…

6. Maraschino cherries

Maraschino cherries aren’t exactly the freshest fruit, although they do make for an appealing, edible decoration. They aren’t farm to jar to table. They’re actually farm to vat of chemicals.

7. Steaks

Your butcher might actually be gluing your steaks together with a product called “meat glue.” It’s a powdery substance that is used to stick two pieces of beef together. It’s not thought to be dangerous, but some consumer groups are pushing supermarkets to label meats containing this glue.

8. Ice cream or gelato

What you have to do is grab the ice cream or gelato out of your freezer and take a look at the ingredients. You’ll probably see milk, sugar, and carrageenan. Wait, what is that word? Carrageenan is a setting agent found in ice creams that is derived from seaweed. According to holistic physical therapist Sally Morgan, carrageenan has been linked to a number of illnesses, including cancer. Not all ice creams and gelatos contain this ingredient, so it’s good to check next time you go grocery shopping!

Were you shocked at any of these shocking food secrets? Be sure to SHARE this article with your friends if you were!

9. Hot Dogs

Sorry to disappoint you, but hot dogs — one of our barbecue favorites — are made with what has been described as a “gloopy” combination of meat trimmings, starch, fat or “cereal filler.” Ballgames are never gonna be the same!

10. Ketchup and Pink-Colored Products

Whether you’re talking about ketchup, Yoplait yogurt or Ocean Spray Ruby Red Grapefruit, to give the products their distinctive color it turns out that they’re dyed with “cochineal extract,” also known as the bodies of very tiny crushed up insects. Ugh.

Clint Eastwood Seen In Rare Full Family Photo For Thanksgiving

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Those wanting to keep up with Clint Eastwood have very particular options that don’t include many direct lines of communication. Eastwood doesn’t have an Instagram account of his own, for instance. But his family members do and one recently shared a photo of Eastwood enjoying Thanksgiving with his extended family.

The person who shared this photo is Alison, one of at least eight children Eastwood has. Born in 1972, Alison has followed in her father’s footsteps and pursued acting; she appeared in 1997’s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil as a love interest to John Cusack’s character.

The accompanying photo shows Eastwood and much of his family, a rare sight given how little he is on social media and still busy working even at the age of 92. Someone’s feeling lucky, punk.

After several years of lockdown and social distancing, it was a sizable family reunion for Eastwood this Thanksgiving. He has famously had many affairs and relationships over the years and has been divorced twice. From these affairs, Eastwood has had an unknown amount of kids – and he refuses to confirm any official number.
