Sue’s Morning Stretch: Time for short hair if you’re named Jennifer

SHARE Sue’s Morning Stretch: Time for short hair if you’re named Jennifer

Short hair trends, Miranda Lambert and “egg agents” today.

  • Noticed a trend today: shorter hair on celebs named Jennifer. First it was Jennifer Aniston. Then Jennifer Lawrence. Now, this morning I see Jennifer Hudson with her short hair on “CBS This Morning” talking about her new movie, “Black Nativity.” All three look very sophisticated with shorter locks.
  • First tongues were wagging (ooh, that image makes me think of Miley Cyrus) that country singer Miranda Lambert was too fat. She said she dieted over the last six months — “watching what I ate” — and worked out and by the time she reached her 30th birthday on Nov. 10 her skinny jeans were baggy. But now rumors are spreading she lost the weight with the help of surgery, according to a story on “GMA.” She’s denying the rumors. Miranda Lambert has an amazing voice; but naturally we can’t focus on us because the Mean Girl Movement is pretty strong right now. Shut up, people. She looks great, sounds even better. People are just jealous she not rail thin but is married to hottie Black Shelton, that’s what I think.
  • Hey, here’s something women do for a lot of money: egg donation. Women who sell their eggs via an “egg agent” to couples wanting — but unable — to have children get $8,000 to $10,000 a pop, according to “Today.” Supposedly there’s a “controversy” (that’s a popular twist on morning TV talk shows), but honestly, they never really gave one. Win-win situation for the females and the couples.
