Mommy Tried it! Renzo’s Dissolvable Vitamins For Kids

Renzo's Iron

Giving your kids vitamins can be tricky because the ingredients, particularly sugar, can be suspect AF. The last thing any parent wants is for their children to be bouncing off the walls from something that was essentially supposed to be healthy. The other tricky part is getting your child, especially as a toddler, to actually swallow the pill or liquid or chew the gummy.

In my case, my 2.5-year-old’s pediatrician instructed me to start her on iron supplements so I went on the hunt for what I felt were good vitamins. First, I settled on a liquid brand. I figured that liquid would hit her system quickly and would be easy for her to take so that was a plus. We started out really well. I’d deliver the dose with a syringe and she would happily swallow the iron. But after a couple of weeks, in true toddler fashion, she started spitting the liquid out –not because she didn’t like it (I don’t think), but because she got fascinated by the concept of spitting liquid out (she starting doing this with water and milk too). As a toddler parent, I know there’s no point in questioning or trying to reason with her. The only other thing I could do was try to find a solution.

After doing some research I stumbled across Renzo’s Dissolvable Vitamins. The brand describes itself as being geared toward picky eaters and “making healthy easy.” The vitamins come in four different formulas: Multivitamin, Iron, B6 and D3. Each formulation is plant-based, non-GMO, and without animal products and added sugar. The website even breaks down what some of the more complicated sounding ingredients actually are and explains that its vitamins are easier to digest than most on the market. I was also intrigued by the fact that the vitamins are dissolvable.  

I thought they would be an instant hit with my daughter but I was wrong. She was freaked out at first by the texture and I thought all hope was lost, but I offered her the vitamins for about three days straight before she finally decided to try one and she liked it. She asked for more, which I obviously declined because the dosing says to give them one, but now she’s excited about taking her iron and actually requests them herself if I don’t remember.

I tested the vitamin myself and, as promised, it’s small, dissolves quickly, and actually tastes as good as an iron supplement can. I know that last part sounds suspect, but iron supplements all tend to have a hint of metal taste for obvious reasons. That can be off-putting for kids but with these, while there is that metallic hint, it’s not too strong and, again, the pills dissolve quickly so the taste can be washed away with water though my daughter never needs to wash it down. My daughter, who is a picky eater, consumes them like a champ and I plan to purchase more items from the range. I actually hope this brand considers creating adult vitamins because taking supplements never really gets easier, but more people would be more likely to comply if doing so could be as quick and painless as Renzo’s makes the process for kids.

RHONY Star Bethenny Frankel Reportedly Tried To Break Up With Dennis Shields One Week Before His Death

Bethenny Frankel is opening up about the final days in her relationship with the late Dennis Shields. In a shocking interview, the Real Housewives of New York star revealed that she attempted to cut ties with Shields weeks before his tragic death.

“I mean, it’s really brutal. He was really someone that I went to for everything,” Frankel confessed. “So him being gone is just a massive void and I really can’t believe he’s gone.”

Shields was found unresponsive in his New York City apartment this past summer. He is believed to have passed away from a prescription drug overdose. On the weekend prior to his death, Frankel revealed that she decided to end her relationship with Shields once and for all. After she learned about his passing, the RHONY star admitted that she felt a tremendous amount of guilt over what happened.

According to All About The Real Housewives, Frankel also revealed that Shields believed he was destined to be alone if their relationship did not work out. This is one reason why Frankel decided to remain friends with Shields even after they had broken up. But at the end of the day, she felt like it was time to cut ties with her on-and-off again boyfriend for the benefit of both parties.

Fortunately, Frankel was able to get professional help in the form of therapy in the days and weeks following Shield’s tragic death. In fact, Frankel revealed that she feels much better about the whole situation and understands now that Shields would want her to have some peace of mind as well.

In a previous episode of RHONY, Frankel told Dorinda Medley that Shields proposed to her last spring. The two ultimately decided to put the engagement on the back burner because things were too complicated in Frankel’s life. Frankel, of course, has since moved on and has a new man in her life.

Fans can watch Bethenny Frankel in action when new episodes of the Real Housewives of New York air Wednesday nights on Bravo.

“Why Did This Happen To Me?” R. Kelly’s Ex-Hair Braider Said Singer Tried To Force Oral Sex & Spat On Her

R. Kellys former hairstylist details alleged 2003 sexual assault

It might be hard to imagine that R. Kelly could find himself in even more trouble than he’s already in. But the reach of his hurt and pain is expansive. And just when you think we understand the full scope of it, there’s another woman who comes forward with another story.

This time, Kelly’s former hair stylist, Lanita Carter, who was once an anonymous accuser, revealed her identity today on “CBS This Morning.”

In her sit down interview, Carter spoke about the sexual assault she experienced at the hands of Kelly in 2003, when she was 24-years-old. Carter said she had been working as Kelly’s braider for a year and even defended him in 2002, when he was arrested on child pornography charges. Carter described Kelly with two words: “Perfect gentleman.”

“I would tell people, ‘Pray for him. I do his hair. He is nothing like what they say.’

But the next year, on February 18, 2003, Carter alleged that Kelly called her in to braid his hair. Later. he asked her to massage his head. She told him she didn’t do massages. “I laughed it off. I didn’t know he was for real. If I could change that day, I wouldn’t have been there.

Kelly allegedly yanked her head down by her braid and demanded that he perfom oral sex on her.

Carter said Kelly repeatedly told her, “Suck it for Daddy.”

Carter tried to shield herself from his body with her hand, pulling away from him. In response, Kelly started hawking up saliva, spitting on her.

Carter said the only thing that made him stop was someone knocking on the door.

“He didn’t open the door right away. He says, ‘Fix your face. Fix your muthaf*cking face.’ I knew that’ll be my last day there.”

Carter went to the bathroom and started questioning herself.

“I get to the bathroom and I grab the wall and it was a rose colored towel. I wipe my face. I’m not dressed no type of way. I look at myself in the mirror, I’m not a beauty queen. I didn’t perceive myself to be more than just his hair braider. And I just kept thinking to myself, why did this happen to me.”

Carter called authorities the same day to report the incident.

“They asked for my clothing and I gave them my favorite Tommy Hilfiger shirt and that’s where they found DNA evidence. Semen.”

For whatever reason, charges were not filed against Kelly in 2003. Carter offered her theory about the reason why this might have been so.

“Celebrities are powerful. Celebrities have support systems. I have no support system outside of my immediate family.”

Six months later, Carter signed a $ 650,000 settlement where Kelly denied any wrong doing and Carter agreed to keep quiet.

In 2009, R. Kelly released, “Hair Braider” a song about having sex with the woman who braids his hair.

Carter said there were references to her in the lyrics and music video. Kelly sings, “Zig zag braids, got em looking like spaghetti.”

Carter said, “That was one of the hair styles that I was known for doing. We were on the L shaped couch when the incident happened.”

The song led to another confidential settlement, this one for $ 100,000. In documents, Kelly denies any wrong doing but agreed never to perform it again or include it on any of his future albums.

After the documentary, Cook County State Attorney Kimberly Foxx asked that victims of Kelly come forward and share their stories.

Carter said, “I would be going on with my day, you turn on the news, here’s another R. Kelly victim. Another R. Kelly victim. Another R. Kelly victim. You just want to be there for them.”

Carter said that interestingly enough, Kelly’s interview with Gayle King that inspired her to come forward and tell her story publicly.

“I know that I love myself today. I know that I don’t care what anybody say about me. This is a release. I been carrying this since 2003. I don’t want to be in the public but this is my life. If I die tomorrow, I know that I told the truth.”

You can watch Carter’s interview in the video below.

How the Alleged New Zealand Terrorist Tried to Trick the World

Stringer .

The suspect in the New Zealand mosque shootings used disinformation to manipulate the media response and spreading white supremacist ideas long after the killing had stopped.

All he needed was a forum post, a rambling manifesto, some social media accounts, and a GoPro camera.

Other white supremacists killers, including Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof and Norwegian mass shooter Anders Breivik, have released their own manifestoes and littered social media platforms with clues about their motivations. But the suspect in the Christchurch terrorist attack went much further by trying to control the narrative about what he did.

Two weeks after an Instagram post that shocked fans, comedian and Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson returned to the stand-up stage in Boston on New Year’s Eve. And included in his set was some new material about fellow comic Louis C.K.

“I got a Harry Potter tattoo. Then the next day Alan Rickman, the guy who played Snape died, and I was like, oh, what a weird coincidence,” Davidson told the crowd, according to a report from E! “Then I got a Willy Wonka tattoo. Next day—Gene Wilder dies. Now I’m like, alright, that’s a coincidence, that’s weird. So I’m thinking of getting a tattoo of Louis C.K., what do you guys think?”

Davidson then tagged the bit with, “That joke used to be about Aziz Ansari, but Aziz has been nice to me recently.”

The View’s Meghan McCain Tried To Come For Stacey Abrams On Gun Laws, Promptly Gathered

2018 Essence Festival New Orleans

Meghan McCain didn’t know who she was dealing with. The View host questioned Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams about her stance on gun control and the Spelman and Yale grad swiftly and eloquently shut down the late Sen. McCain’s daughter. 

McCain asked Abrams, who is proud to have an F-rating from the NRA, if she was in favor of banning at infamous AR-15 assault rifle in the wake of the synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh. Abrams ably answered the leading question.

“So let’s be clear, I am not anti-gun. My great-grandmother taught me how to shoot when I was growing up in Mississippi,” said Abrams. “I like trap shooting, I like target shooting. I don’t hunt because I mostly eat chicken and that just seems mean.”

That latter portion of her answer elicited laughs, and McCain, who was trying to give the impression that Abrams wants to storm in and take everyone’s guns away, just wasn’t ready.

She added, “However, I know that the most responsible gun owners understand that they have the responsibility for the firearms, and making sure that only responsible people have those firearms. That’s I why I believe in a background check.”

She also got cheers when she said she believed weapons of mass destruction, like the AR-15, should not be in civilian hands.

Watch Abrams’ gathering, and her assertion that she believes in the 2nd amendment, in the clip below.
