Gabrielle Union Tells 'Redbook' Mag 'Penance For Being A Career Woman Is Barrenness'

Gabrielle Union is all smiles while posing for the cover of Redbook magazine’s October 2015 issue, hitting on newsstands on September 15th!

The 42-year-old actress takes the cover alongside Erin Andrews and Maria Menounos – Check out what she had to share with the mag below!

On the weird thing about being married to a younger man: “I realized his friends, his teammates, were conceived when I was, like, a senior in high school. I was in high school at the same time as their parents! Sometimes he’ll be like, ‘Oh, my God, he’s so old!’ about someone who’s 35. But, Dwyane‘s an old 33, and I’m a young 42, so it balances out.”

On how hard it is for working women with children: “The reality is that women are discriminated against in the workplace for being mothers. As much as there are strides being made – you get pregnant, your career takes a hit. You can’t have a bad day. Don’t you dare cry at work. Don’t raise your voice. Especially if you’re a black woman in corporate America – now you’re “the angry black woman.”

On IVF and the pressures of trying for a family later in life: “So far, it has not happened for us. A lot of my friends deal with this. There’s a certain amount of shame that is placed on women who have perhaps chosen a career over starting a family younger. The penance for being a career woman is barrenness. You feel like you’re wearing a scarlet letter.”

Also pictured: Gabrielle accepting the Closest Crush Award on stage during the 2015 Essence Street Style Block Party on Sunday (September 13) in New York City.

FYI: Gabrielle is wearing Marchesa with Alexandre Birman shoes at the event.

Julianne Hough & Maria Menounos Bring Their Dance Battles to TV Tonight!

We all know that Julianne Hough and Maria Menounos love to challenge each other to dance battles on social media during the holiday season, but now they are taking their fun to television!

The BFFs have co-executive produced #DanceBattle America, a new special for ABC, which will premiere tonight (September 14) right after Dancing With the Stars.

After the ladies challenged America to join in on their battles, eight teams were chosen to go through a week of training and battle it out on stage in front of the country.

“I love that my family and friends coming together to challenge the Houghs on social media turned into a chance for America to dance!” Maria said in a statement. “Ever since I left DWTS, I’ve always wanted to find a way to give others the magical experience I had. Watching the submissions for this show had me laughing, dancing or crying. It’s so inspirational and uplifting.”

“The number one question I get from fans is ‘When are they going to make a Dancing with the Stars for the average Joe?’ so the idea behind this is that these families, friends and co-workers get to come to L.A. to work with a choreographer and go through a small version of the transformation that the celebrities go through on DWTS,” Julianne added.

Watch a preview below and tune in tonight at 10pm on ABC!
