Kemper and Koman have a 2-year-old son, James Miller Koman. Speculation that "The Office" alum could be pregnant first sparked last week when her personal stylist, Jessica Paster, described Kemper as a "beautiful mommy to be" on Instagram. Paster had styled her in a red snakeskin dress by The Kooples for the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Conversations with "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" event. "You ace it every time, Jess!!!" the 39-year-old star commented on the post. Seth Meyers sits down with Ellie Kemper and jokes around by showing Kemper in some embarrassing "roles."

AUSTIN — The pre-abortion drugs were kicking in, and the seven women in a light pink waiting room were coaching each other through dizziness and chills. “It’s OK, You’ve got this,” one woman said. “I’m drowsy,” said another, curled up in a comfy chair. About half of them had a blanket and a spot to curl up in at this point before the procedure. Elsa Vizcarra’s job that day was to try to interview to all of them. Vizcarra, a University of Texas researcher, spent the better part of a year sitting with nearly 600 abortion patients at a dozen clinics around Texas to understand what led the women to these waiting rooms and what barriers they faced to get there. This story is based on her account of some of those conversations and clinic visits — Vizcarra and UT withheld details on locations of the clinics, and on the women interviewed, to protect their privacy. Mostly, she was struck by their resilience — to drive more than … [Read more...] about This researcher interviewed 600 women at Texas abortion clinics. Here’s what she saw.
Don Markus Associated Press Published 10:06 PM EST Dec 13, 2018 Former Maryland coach D.J. Durkin could become the latest former Football Bowl Subdivision coach to rebuild his career at Alabama. According to a report published Thursday on AL.com, Durkin has been working with Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban’s football program in a “consultant-like capacity” for the past week. The 40-year-old Durkin was fired Oct. 31, one day after being reinstated by the University System of Maryland’s Board of Regents following nearly three months on paid administrative leave. Durkin lost his job in the aftermath of offensive lineman Jordan McNair’s death in mid-June and allegations of a “toxic” culture in the way he ran the football program during his 2 1/2 -year tenure at Maryland. Neither Durkin nor a spokesperson for Saban could be reached for comment. Durkin’s attorney, Jeffrey Klein, declined comment. Since Maryland announced Durkin was fired … [Read more...] about Thursday’s football: Durkin reportedly a consultant for Alabama
HUFFPOST PERSONAL 12/05/2018 08:30 am ET Updated 5 days ago Erin MoynihanGuest Writer Sex hurts. That’s what I’ve been told all my life. And if you have a vagina, you’ve probably been told that too. But just how much is it supposed to hurt? If you Google “is sex supposed to hurt,” as I have a billion times over the past four years, you’ll get lots of different answers. According to Psychology Today, it hurts for 1 in 3 women the first time, and according to Scarleteen and Seventeen Magazine, it’s not supposed to hurt at all, especially after the first time. Notably, most of the top results are blog posts and teen magazines. Well then, if sex isn’t supposed to hurt at all after the first time, then what in the world is wrong with me? The first time I had sex that involved sticking a penis in me was painful. Not just painful ― absolutely excruciating. To be honest, we couldn’t even get it in all the way, and I … [Read more...] about I Have Vaginismus And It Makes Sex So Painful It Feels Like ‘Shark Week’ In My Vagina
If there's one thing I've learned over the last decade-plus of blogging about medicine and alternative medicine, it's that any time there is an outbreak or pandemic of infectious disease, there will inevitably follow major conspiracy theories about it. It happened during the H1N1 pandemic in the 2009-2010 influenza season, the Ebola outbreak in late 2014, and the Disneyland measles outbreak last year, when cranks of many stripes claimed that either the outbreaks themselves were due to conspiracies (usually, but not limited to, conspiracies to promote the "depopulation" vaccination agenda of—who else?—Bill Gates) or that nefarious forces were seizing on the outbreak to take away our freedom. The second thing I've learned is that inevitably people will try to impose their ideology on to the disease and try to use outbreaks to push their own ideological agenda. Indeed, the Ebola outbreak, for example, was rapidly seized on by politicians to promote quarantines and to halt … [Read more...] about No, DDT won’t save us from the Zika virus
