I saw a glimpse earlier and decided it just be her top. Now she is in another top -mint green, and I swear she's expecting. Anyone know? Curious!

I learned long ago never to ask this question. I worked at a thrift store that had a great maternity section. So when I saw an obviously pregnant woman, I thought I would be nice and direct her. Then she looked at me and said, "I'm not pregnant, I have a medical condition that causes me to be seriously bloated" and walked out.

During this past hour that she was on, yes, it looked like a little something there, whether pregnancy or bloatedness.

It was good to see her back again.

I think that's a hurtful thing to ask on a public message board. The scrapbooking community isn't that big; the comment is bound to get back to her.

If she isn't pregnant then she's being called out for putting on weight. If she is pregnant, it's HER decision about when she chooses to announce it.

Makes me so glad I'm just a nobody who isn't subject to public critique every day.

I agree with you. She can never win when it comes to her clothes. During her QVC days you could make bets that there would be a thread started about her clothes and was she pg.
I think she is darling & I'm really glad to see her back again! I hope that all the good threads about her returning are what she reads.

I didnt think she looked pregnant but I barely recognized Becky Higgins when they showed her photo!! I know that is off the subject a bit but I was just shocked.

I have had people ask when I was due and not been pregnant. They had confused me with my sister in laws sister. I wasnt offended at all.

Then when I was pregnant last year everyone thought I just got fat! Lol
I have a 10 week baby and people keep telling me they had no idea I was expecting and I was ENORMOUS. But I dont generally get upset about someone's opinion of me or my life because I dont answer to them and EVERYONE has an opinion.

Isn't she almost 50? She has kids in their 20s. I would really doubt she is pregnant.

Adding: I thought she looked great, healthy weight and happy.

I think that we are around the same age (48). To be honest, it was refreshing to see a scrapbook celebrity to have a body that actually looks like it has given birth to four kids and is middle age. As much as I want a skinny body, it's very hard to do at our age. As for myself, I tell people that I have a baby bump but no baby.

This wasn't a post to comment on her weight / I genuinely wonder if she is pregnant because of the long shirts she wore.... I know she loves having children and has many - as a Mormon it is part of her faith .... So just asking- no hurt intended!

Long tops and maxi length skirts are in fashion right now, but those pieces in certain materials are hard to wear on ANY body type.

But its' part of being in the public spotlight. If you put yourself out there, then you need to have tough enough skin to take questions and inquiries like this. She's a very smart and savvy business woman who has been on t.v. , on scrapbook pages for millions to see... for years.

I just don't see the guilt someone is "supposed" to feel for asking this question. She does look great, and I was wondering the same thing myself. If she is, great! Congrats! If she's not? Oops, no worries. Big deal.

TV also makes you look heavier than you appear.

Take that into consideration.

Because it's a comment on someone's physical appearance. I would be incredibly hurt if someone asked me if I'm pregnant. I would hear "Oh, you're looking kind of fat lately". I think that most women, if they AREN'T actually pregnant, would have the same reaction. And I think it's just rude in general to ask if someone is pregnant. It's a very personal thing.

Why is it that when someone has an opinion that something is hurtful that they are automatically labelled a handslapper? It's called a difference of opinion, not a handslap.

I don't think the question was hurtful. It was just an honet question to an observation.

I think for me it's just a long history here on Two Peas. I've never seen a scrapbook celebrity get so many comments about her clothes. Every single time she was on QVC there would be at least 1 thread, probably more about her clothes. It seemed like she could never wear the right thing that she was not being torn apart on here for her choice in clothes. I always thought she dressed so cute, if I remember right she wore a lot of peasant type tops back then. It just seemed like someone was always on here saying mean things about her clothes and that always led to was she pregnant. I know if you are going to be in the spotlight you have to have thick skin but geesh it would take a lot to read all of that and not be hurt.
This time around there were so many post about how glad we were to see her back and how we loved her scrapping on tv because she always shows us the pages and all. I was just hoping the comments about her choice in clothes would be gone this time, that's all.
I had one time in my life that someone asked me when I was due, even though the baby was in my shopping cart. It really hurt me bad that day, I guess new Mom hormones were kicking in. I've made it a point to never ever say that to anyone. I just don't want to hurt them. I've always had the feeling that talking about ones pregnancy is just not something I bring up. Gosh, I broke that rule last week and told a lady I was so glad to hear the news that she had a grandbaby on the way only to find out the Mom lost the baby . It reminded me again of why I never ever bring up a pregnancy until the other person mentions it. So many ways to hurt a person.

She posted this:

March 22nd, 2013

TGIF! Really - Thank goodness it’s Friday. That means there’s only a few more days until Project Life and many other exciting products will debut on “Papercrafting with Lisa Bearnson!” Yippee!

My dear pal, Loni Stevens (many of you know this name – an amazing scrapbooker and designer), has just opened an online clothing boutique. She has the cutest clothes and generously gave me this outfit to wear on HSN.

and then this:

In fact, many of the clothes I’ll be wearing on Monday, are from her adorable boutique. Its called Ruby Bloom Boutique. And – she generously is giving away TWO $50 gift certificates to two lucky winners to use in her online store.

I'm so sorry that happened to you. That would hurt regardless of new Mom hormones kicking in.

It wasn't a difference of opinion.. a difference of opinion is "I think Lisa is pregnant" and someone else says "No I don't think Lisa is pregnant"...

Someone stated that it was hurtful to ask that.. I wouldn't call that a difference of opinion, I would call it a hand slap.


I think the question is hurtful. You don't think the statement is hurtful. Call it a difference of opinion or a handslap; it's just semantics. My intent wasn't to "handslap" or admonish, rather just to say that I think it would be really hurtful to hear/read comments about your physical appearance.

The "they are a public person" argument doesn't work for me. People are people, and their feelings get hurt whether they are a celebrity or just a regular person. I can't understand how the fact that someone sells products on HSN so now everyone has free reign to say whatever they like about them. If you want to privately think negative things or talk to your friends in private about it, I can understand that. But to make statements like that publically just seems hurtful to me. I guess it's our culture though; I saw that the cover of US Weekly addresses this very issue with Kim Kardashian making comments that it hurts that people are commenting on her weight and calling her fat while she's pregnant.

Honestly, I'm a pretty judgemental person; probably more than an ordinary person if I'm being completely honest. I try really, really hard not to be but it's a hard habit to break, and it's something I really don't like about myself. If I saw Lisa B on HSN (I didn't watch), it's not unlikely that I would have had some kind of negative thought about her/the show. I've got two "rules" for myself. One that I've always had is not to say anything negative about anyone. I *think* mean, negative things all the time. I just try to keep them inside, and for the most part, I do pretty well with that. To combat thinking the negative thoughts, I recently (within the last month) any time I think something negative about something/someone, I make myself come up with three positive/nice things about them. It's helping a lot.

Sorry; that was really long and kind of wandered off point. I guess to summarize, it's totally normal to wonder if someone is pregnant, and the thought itself isn't remotely hurtful. It's normal human curiousity. But many (if not most) women are going to be very hurt if someone asks if they are pregnant when they aren't. If you think that a comment has the potential to hurt someone, why say it?

I can't believe you ladies! As someone who has been on the receiving end of that question more than once and who never had kids I can tell you it is absolutely hurtful!!!! I'm skinny but carry all my extra weight on my belly, and all it takes is one large lunch to make me look pregnant. And honestly it is probably THE most hurtful thing ever said to me. Forget curse words or any other insult, this is the absolute worst. And let's be real, if this was said to or about any if you, there would be a ten pager on NSBR already and everyone would agree it's rude!!!!

And while I do agree that Lisa B is a public persona, all I am trying to say is that the question is rude. You wouldn't ask her that to her face would ya? Didn't think so.

On a lighter note: Around Thanksgiving, a picture of my SIL was posted on FB and I immediatly turned to my DH and said "Your sister is either pregnant or she's getting fat." He said "I don't know. You want me to ask her if she's getting fat?"... seriously, sure, please call her and ask her THAT... MEN!

And, FYI, yes, she is pregnant,but didn't tell till much later, so I wasn't crazy and it's TWINS!

Well, I understood from her when I met her that she's the same age as I am...which is 49 turning 50 this year. So she wouldn't be pregnant...but on the up side, it's a compliment because it means she looks young enough to still be having kids!

To the OP, I truly thought the same thing at the midnight debut, when she wore the pink top and tan skirt! You're not the only one... I think Lisa is great and enjoyed hobby and craft day immensely. I think it was just the cut of the skirt, but you never know... Just wanted to share so you know you're not the only one that wondered about that!

Her kids were really cute and have cute names... it's not so terrible to wish there was another baby B coming!

I'm another one who carries my weight around my middle and have been asked by several people if I am expecting when I'm not. Sometimes you have to try to imagine what's behind the question (usually people are delighted to welcome a new baby into their circle) instead of just thinking of body image.

I think she absolutely looked the best she's ever looked. She looked really fit and trim to me - super healthy. I loved her outfits too. I would love to look half that good! Go Lisa!!!!! I loved seeing her back on tv.

I've had a small child ask me recently if I had a baby in my tummy. (Nope - I'm just chubby.) Trust me - it hurts. If you don't think it does - you've probably never had someone ask you that.

I'm sorry. I can't comprehend how any woman wouldn't think that's a hurtful question.

I'm curious how you responded since you were asked by a small child. It's a hurtful question, and you were dealing with that, but when it comes from a small child who doesn't understand not to ask those types of questions, it's a delicate situation. Just curious...

I didn't think she looked pregnant at all. I think she looks great for her age (which is not old) I was confused by the 5 kids she kept talking about? I think I figured it out that her husband was married before briefly and had a child that they are now raising. Has this been the case for awhile? I always just remembered her 4 children before.

Lisa's step-daughter must be in her upper 20's by now. She always looked much older than Lisa's other 4 kids in photos from the QVC days.

I thought Lisa looked great. Never once did I think she was pregnant. Lisa does such a great job of showing/explaining the products. So nice to see her back on the air.

BWHAHAHA! My husband asked me the same question. I thought it was widescreen distortion on our tv paired with the awful shape that skirt gave her.

I agree that it's not something you should ask a woman in person. But I think intent matters...when someone asks that in person their intention is almost definitely NOT to hurt your feelings. If you're asked that question and the answer is no, just assume you look a bit bloated but that you're glowing. It evens out.

I just don't see how it's as hurtful as people are making it out to be. It's not like the OP said "man I can't believe how fugly she is!" Or something similar. That would be hurtful and mean. This, not so much.

I thought she looked amazing, and still does a great job presenting products. I did notice a little "pooch", but most of us late 40's-50's boast at least a little pooch. I thought she looked normal for a middle-aged woman of 4 or 5 (forget how many kids she had). Made her seem human, just like the rest of us.

As far as the OP....I think perhaps it's perspective when reading the thread title. To me.... it seemed a little blunt, but you explained it was an honest question, so i believe you. I have no reason not to. Would I have asked that here knowing it will get back to the person.....no.

I'm curious how you responded since you were asked by a small child. It's a hurtful question, and you were dealing with that, but when it comes from a small child who doesn't understand not to ask those types of questions, it's a delicate situation. Just curious...

It was this little tiny four year old in my Sunday School class and she is a piece of work! She will not behave and we are astounded by how sassy she is but this was the first time she was there. I laughed my head off and I said back to her, "ha! No - I'm just chubby." or something like that. I said, "I need to work out and lose weight!" What else could I say? I don't think she said it to hurt me - she's just blunt and a little wildchild. But hey - that's why she needs to be in Sunday School so we can teach her right from wrong. It did make my face a little red though.
