Cardi B Gets Real About Motherhood – ‘You’ll Never Be Ready For Mommy Mode!’

The rapper is now a mom and is realizing what that really means. But while it’s definitely not easy and nothing can really prepare you for it beforehand, Cardi B wouldn’t have it any other way.

Cardi has been sacrificing her precious sleep ever since welcoming baby daughter Kulture, but that hasn’t dragged her down.

Today, she took to her social media to share a video with her followers in which she addressed her 10 MTV Video Music Awards nominations, something she was obviously really happy and grateful for.

She also went on to open up about motherhood, using a doll to talk to the fans as she apparently did not look a hundred percent at the time and did not want to show her face.

‘Thank you to everybody. I cannot believe that I got nominated for 10 VMA Awards. I’m just been so busy, so tired. Like, I’m in a different world, a different dimension. Now, let me get back to this mommy thing. Let me tell you something. No matter how many books you read or advice I get, y’all will never be ready for mommy mode,’ she said in the clip.

Before that post, she shared a pic that showed only half of her makeup-free face and wrote that she absolutely needed some sleep.

Yesterday, Cardi also posted a pic featuring her and hubby Offset at the doctor with their newborn for a routine checkup and she was not wearing any makeup in that one either.

Ain’t nobody got time for that when they have a bundle of joy to take care of!

As you may remember, Kulture was born on July 10 and the rapper couple is yet to post a pic of her.

Tiffany Haddish Gets All Ugly Face Over Tyler Perry During Laugh Factory Routine [Video]

(Photo credit: PR Photos)

According to Anita Bennett’s UrbanHollywood411, funny woman Tiffany Haddish not only brought the house down Saturday night at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles with laughter, but ended up breaking down in tears herself.

During her set at the famous Sunset Strip comedy club, Haddish joked about being thrifty, taking a sabbatical from sex, receiving a car from Tyler Perry and being gifted the wardrobe from her upcoming film, Night School, with Kevin Hart.

Haddish warned fans they’ll see the outfits over and over, because she believes in recycling.

She also joked about her role in Perry’s upcoming comedy, Nobody’s Fool. She said the director’s rapid-fire production method caught her off guard.

“We shot that whole movie in ten days. I don’t know if it’s gone be any good,” she said to laughter.

“I don’t know if this sh–’s gone be funny. I don’t know what the continuity is gonna look like,” she joked. “I don’t know if in one scene, I’m gonna have three hairdos. I don’t know.”

Then someone in the audience yelled, “Tell us about the car!”

For The First Time In Its 216-Year History, West Point Gets First Black Superintendent

West Point, America’s premier military college, which didn’t graduate its first black cadet until Reconstruction in 1877, now has its first black superintendent.

For the first time in its 216-year history, Lt. Gen. Darryl Williams, who has held high-ranking posts in Europe and Asia, will become the first black officer to command West Point. He will take over from Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen Jr. who is retiring after more than 40 years in the Army, also serving five years as West Point’s superintendent.

William’s appointment, according to the Associated Press, comes less than a year after cadet and Rhodes Scholar, Simone Askew, a black woman from Fairfax, Virginia, was selected as first captain of the Corps of Cadets last summer and graduated in May.

A 1983 graduate of the military college and native of Alexandria, Williams has served first, as deputy chief of staff for the Army in Europe and deputy commanding general for support for the 2nd Infantry Division in South Korea. Recently, he was the commander of NATO’s Allied Land Command in Turkey.

Founded in 1802 along the west bank of the Hudson River 50 miles north of New York, West Point didn’t graduate its first black cadet until 1877. Throughout the 20th century, the military college didn’t graduate another black cadet until Benjamin O. Davis Jr. arrived there in 1932. During his stay, Davis ate alone, roomed alone, and was shunned by fellow cadets because he was black. After his graduation in 1936, he would go on to command the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II, retiring as an Air Force general in 1970. West Point’s newest barracks, per AP, was named after Davis.

For the past couple of years, the U.S. has increasingly shifted its focus on diversifying its ranks, with policies that emphasized inclusion, and marketing campaigns that targeted underrepresented communities. Of the 1,200 incoming members of West Point’s class of 2020, 186 are African Americans.

Bonpoint Gets Guests Reminiscing About Childhood

HAPPY DAYS: Bonpoint’s show Wednesday afternoon at the Palais de Tokyo had guests musing about childhood. Appropriately so, it turns out: The venue was chosen so that guests could afterward meander through the “Another Banana Day for the Dream-fish” exhibition about childhood currently on show there, sponsored by the luxury children’s wear label.
Laure Hériard Dubreuil’s four-year-old son Marcel was walking the show for the first time. “I’m very nervous, much more nervous than he is,” she shared beforehand.
There was no need — most of the kids on the tree-lined runway looked to be having a ball, with two youngsters squirting each other with water pistols as they walked, another scooting around on a skateboard, his scuffed Vans proving that it was not just for show.
Hériard Dubreuil’s favorite childhood memories are of spending family time in the cognac region – her family produces the Rémy Martin brand. “Having lots of brothers and sisters and having a farm,” she said. “And getting drunk from the vapors of the cognac coming out of the barrels.”
For Lauren Santo Domingo, it was about being carefree. “Just being outdoors and free and unscheduled,” she said. “That would be nice.”

Hugh Grant Gets Candid About Becoming A Father And Finally Marrying At 57

After starring in a number of romantic comedies and falling in love on-screen, Hugh Grant has finally found romance off-screen and is happier than ever. The 57-year-old British actor exchanged vows with Anna Eberstein last month, and Grant says he regrets not getting married sooner.

During a recent appearance on The Today Show, the Notting Hill star joked, “You don’t think I’m too young?” He went on to say that it’s “really nice” being married, and he can’t pretend it isn’t. Grant also said he is lucky to have such a great wife, and he loves her.

On May 25th – two months after Eberstein gave birth to their third child – she and Grant exchanged vows in London. The couple also has a five-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter. Grant is also the father of a 6-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son with receptionist Tinglan Hong.

It’s not easy having five kids under the age of seven, and Grant told Savannah Guthrie that traveling poses some serious challenges. He said it is “unspeakable,” and you go through the dilemma of deciding if you actually travel with them or make an excuse, so they go with their mom or nanny.

Grant’s ex, Elizabeth Hurley, accidentally revealed back in March that Eberstein had given birth. When talking to E! News, she said that Grant is a great guy and she sees and speaks to him a lot. “He’s now a father of five, he has five kids, and he’s a great dad,” said Hurley.

Two days later, during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, she confirmed Grant and Eberstein’s baby news by saying they had another one, and he was “over 50 when he spawned them all.”

The Austin Powers star also said that she and Grant have been friends for 31 years, and he is still her “best friend in the whole world.” Hurley and Grant were together for 13 years, and they split in 2000.

As for his latest project, Grant recently starred as Jeremy Thorpe in the three-part Amazon series A Very English Scandal. Thorpe was a member of the British Parliament during the 1960s who went on trial for allegedly plotting to kill his former lover.

Hugh Grant’s latest project, A Very English Scandal is available for streaming on Amazon Prime.

Say What Now? Would-Be Robber Fall Throughs Convenience Store Ceiling, Gets Caught [Video]

Just because you may have seen something in an action movie, doesn’t always mean the same will work in real life.

Two would-be robbers found out the hard way.

via TMZ:

Where: Alberta, Canada
When: Earlier this week
Why: Two robbery suspects — a man and a woman — at a convenience store were attempting to flee from a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer.

Long story short … the cop busts out his taser to take down the guy. Meanwhile, his female friend tries to make a clean escape by running into the stockroom and climbing through the ceiling — y’know, ‘Mission: Impossible’ style. She almost made it. Almost.

This entire caper was captured by the store’s surveillance cameras. Thank God.

Gabrielle Union’s ‘L.A.’s Finest’ Gets The Greenlight At Charter

It ain’t over for Gabrielle Union’s police pilot. While Union’s drama, a spinoff from her Bad Boys 2 character co-starring Jessica Alba was rejected by NBC, it will live to see another day. Cable provider Charter Communications will pick up the drama as its first scripted show for this fall. It will run 13 episodes.

Shadow and Act reports:

“Charter has a strong passion for the project and we could not be more excited. Immediately we knew this innovative new platform was absolutely the right home for L.A.’s Finest,” said Jeff Frost, President of Sony Pictures.

“Charter is excited to partner with top producers Sony, (Jerry) Bruckheimer and the rest of the incredible team behind and in front of the camera on our first Spectrum Original Content endeavor. Our content partnerships offer us a great opportunity to provide Spectrum customers with the dynamic, authentic and unique programming that drives value for their Spectrum subscription,” said Katherine Pope, Senior Vice President, Head of Original Content, Charter Communications.“

Charter Communications also has original content deals with AMC Networks and Viacom and recently hired a seasoned TV exec, Katherine Pope, to head up original content. As Charter’s first move into this space, this is a big one. WIth high-caliber stars, recognizable continuity, its a key move for Spectrum’s space in high-end, premium content.

Arguably the most high-profile pilot of the season (with an expensive pilot said to cost $ 12M), NBC passing on the series was a shock as it features two movie stars and women of color. Union, who fronted the spinoff from the start, wanted to land a big name as her co-lead and personally sought Alba.

Shadow and Act spoke to Union about the pilot recently. “We’re really excited. And to be able to co-executive produce with Jessica Alba..it’s like, we feel like boss bitches. It just really feels good that two women of color are the leads, are the executive producers, put the whole thing together and that we know that we are deserving of this opportunity. That nobody gave it to us, we took it. So hopefully NBC agrees. No pressure, NBC (laughs)…but we really hope we are on the fall lineup.”

The series would see Union reprising her character, Special Agent Sydney “Syd” Burnett, from the second Bad Boys film. Burnett was an undercover DEA operative and sister of Martin Lawrence’s Marcus Burnett and love interest for Will Smith’s Mike Lowrey.

Lucas Portman Gets Flashbulbs Popping at Balmain

GENE POOL: He may have inherited his mother’s towering stature and model looks, but Natalia Vodianova’s eldest son Lucas Portman has no plans just yet to follow in his famous mom’s professional footsteps.
“I’m only in 10th grade, I’m 16,” said Portman at the Balmain show Sunday afternoon, where he got the flashbulbs popping just as much as more familiar front-row faces including Victor Cruz, Serge Ibaka, Virginie Ledoyen and Hu Bing.
The striking blond teenager, who had just gotten out of school for the summer and was looking forward to vacation, admitted that nevertheless, “I’m already looking for where I want to go and what I want to do.”
While he said he hadn’t yet decided on his plans for the future, his model and philanthropist mother is certainly an inspiration. “I know it’s a cliché, but my mom has always been an inspiration in everything she’s done.”
For her part, Ledoyen has just wrapped two movies, a made-for-television project, “Mélancolie Ouvrière,” (which translates as “workers’ melancholy”) and “Rémi Sans Famille” (or “Rémi the Orphan”), due out in December.
“They’re very different, one’s a trade unionist, the other’s an aristocrat, so the spectrum is very broad,” said the French actress of her characters in the

Teairra Mari’s Restraining Order Against 50 Cent Gets Denied By the Judge

Teairra Mari’s request for a restraining order against 50 Cent has been denied.

via TMZ:

As we reported … Teairra went after her ex, Akbar Abdul-Ahad, and his friend, 50, claiming they teamed up to spread images of her on Instagram that included Teairra with ejaculate all over her face.

She went to court to get a restraining order against them to stop sharing the photo … but the judge has now denied that motion. And according to Lisa Bloom, the judge denied the request “because she was not convinced that the photo 50 Cent posted, with ejaculate on our client’s face, showed her ‘engaging’ in a sexual act.”

Bloom also claims the judge wasn’t convinced 50 would post the photo again. Lisa took the judge to task saying, “Common sense dictates that photo of a woman with ejaculate on her face clearly depicts a sex act, and is the kind of humiliation the revenge porn law was designed to ban.”

As for Akbar, he’s scheduled to face the judge later this month. 

Whether she was ‘engaging’ or had ‘engaged’ in a sexual act is one heck of a technicality for the judge to get hung up on — wouldn’t you agree?

Olivia Munn Gets Real About Aaron Rodgers’ Estrangement From His Family

Olivia Munn may have moved on from Aaron Rodgers in many ways, but that doesn’t mean she’s not able to get honest about certain aspects of their relationship. More specifically, she’s letting people in on the real reason Rodgers has a strained relationship with his family and how that affected his relationship with Munn.

More: Aaron Rodgers Blames Olivia Munn Split Partly on “Inappropriate Connections”

During her appearance on Watch What Happens earlier this week, Munn discussed just how tough things were with Rodgers and his family right from the start of their relationship.

“He hadn’t spoken to the parents and one brother [Jordan], for, like, eight months before we started dating,” Munn explained to Cohen as a way of explaining away complaints that she was the source of trouble.

Munn also explained that she tried to help patch things up between Rodgers and his family a couple of times. “They had a nice conversation and then they started coming out my first year when I was in Green Bay in 2014. […] I just think it’s really important to try to mend things in a family and I encouraged that. But at the end of the day, I mean, um…”

“It was out of your control,” Cohen filled in for her.

More: Aaron Who? Olivia Munn Found Herself a Spanish Hunk

And while Munn states that she played peacemaker with Rodgers and his family as well as maintained a friendly relationship with his brother, Jordan Rodgers, it all seems to have been for naught. She hinted that the strained relationship between Aaron Rodgers and his family may have come from his fame as a major NFL star.

“I do believe that family and fame and success can be really complicated if their dreams are connected to your success,” she told Cohen, going on to explain, “[His family is] all in sports, and Aaron is one of the best if not the best quarterback to ever play the game. Their work has a direct connection to what he does. At the end of the day, there’s a lot of complications. I don’t think either side of the road is clean, but I do think it’s not OK when you try to stand on someone’s shoulders and then throw dirt in their face, which is what they did for him.”

More: Olivia Munn’s Quitting Aaron Rodgers Cold Turkey

The couple, who were together for three years, certainly went through some highs and lows. And while we always knew they were on a rocky journey as a couple, those private details came to the surface in bits and pieces back then; we never really had a clear picture of who was or wasn’t in the wrong in that situation. With Munn’s input, it sounds like Rodgers and his family have always had issues because of the way they’ve treated their very famous son.

Munn and Rodgers may have moved on from their relationship, but it’s kinda nice to see that Munn is still in his corner defending him.

Red Valentino’s London Flagship Gets a Makeover for ‘Chelsea in Bloom’

To pay homage to the “Summer of Love” theme for this year’s “Chelsea in Bloom” initiative, the label created a large-scale installation that spells the word “Love” and features on its window. It’s decorated with peonies, cestrum and dianthus — a selection of red flowers chosen by floral designer Larry Walshe.
The brand also got in the floral mood by lining their signature bouquet-printed clothing across its Chelsea boutique’s walls and joined forces with illustrator Ollie St Clair Terry to create a new red-and-blue floral print.

Sprint’s 55+ deal gets you two lines of unlimited for the cost of one Verizon line

Sprint Unlimited plan vs Verizon

It’s no secret that Sprint and T-Mobile undercut their competition on price — Sprint once set up an entire fake store to make the point — and one of the constant differences between Verizon (or AT&T) and the two smaller carriers are the frequent deals. If you pay attention, you can often get Sprint or T-Mobile service for significantly less than the sticker price, and some of the best deals are reserved for special groups like members of the military, or seniors.

The latter group is who Sprint is targeting with a new 55+ plan, which offers two lines of unlimited data, talk, and text for $ 70, or $ 35 per line. Given that Verizon’s cheapest Unlimited plan starts at $ 75 per month for one line, and AT&T’s cheapest unlimited plan is $ 65, it’s hard to argue that this isn’t a good deal.

Style Scenario: First Day it gets Hot (dressed up)

What are you going to wear? Sometimes it’s good to look at a few suggestions then add your own tweaks and ideas. That’s what these are for. Seems like most of the hemisphere has jumped straight from late winter to summer this year. And if you are lucky enough to be experiencing some sort of extended spring, you probably have had at least one heat spike already. Here’s one way to dress (up) for that first day the mercury climbs oddly high.

Style Scenario: First Day it gets Hot (dressed up) | Dappered.com

The Sportcoat: Bonobos Unconstructed Italian Wool Sportcoat in Marshall Grey Plaid – $ 360 w/ BLUEMOON ($ 450). An investment, but hot damn do they nail it with these things. Barely there construction. Strong feeling, yet lightweight and breezy Italian hopsack wool. Plus a pattern that’ll work great with light chinos now, and dark jeans or navy wool trousers in the fall. Note that the sportcoat at the top of the page is NOT this Bonobos sportcoat. It’s an old, sold out Brooks Brothers sportcoat. Want something closer in pattern? Try the recently mentioned Todd Snyder Canadian Made plaid linen sportcoat instead.

The Watch: Citizen Titanium Eco Drive Chrono – $ 207.98. One of their flagships. Been in production forever, and you can’t blame em’. Looks good in almost all situations. Lighter in weight, so if you’re an automatic / mechanical guy it might feel a bit light on the wrist, but most non mechanical fellas appreciate that lighter weight feel. Tons of functions. You’ll be reading the instruction manual.

The Shirt: Nordstrom Tech-Smart Trim Fit Stretch Solid Dress Shirt – $ 69.50Mostly cotton, but there’s 12% poly and 7% spandex woven in for quick-dry ability, good ventilation, and superior stretch. Ships and returns free since it’s Nordstrom.

The Sunglasses: J. Crew “Palma” Sunglasses – $ 59.50Surprisingly nice for the price, and does go up for codes sporadically. Retro frames that aren’t too over the top, and the blue lenses are a nice touch.

The Briefcase: Filson Original in Navy – $ 225 w/ BBSTYLE ($ 325). A made in the USA, tough as nails, classic rugged brief for just north of $ 200? Good luck trying to find that elsewhere without having to back a kickstarter or wait around for another pre-order.

The Shoes: Made in Italy Astorflex Patnoflex Loafer – $ 135. A bit of a risk here. They’re pretty casual as far as loafers, go, but they’re relatively inexpensive, made in Italy, and Astorflex knows how to make one hell of a comfy shoe. If they’re a bit too Bohemian/hippy looking for you, try the BR suede Waller wingtips.

The Belt: Jomers Made in the USA Macrame Cotton Belt – $ 20A perfect warm weather belt at an absurd price.

The Pants: J. Crew Factory Driggs Slim-Fit Lightweight Chino – $ 40ishA standard weight chino might get hot. Real hot. So look for lighter weight chinos like these from JCF. Want a pure white pair of chinos as is shown in the top image? You’ll pay through the nose for em’, but the Bonobos summerweight chino in white will work. Use the code BLUEMOON for 20% off.

Spoiler Alert: The ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Post-Credit Scene Gets Leaked Online

As Avengers: Infinity War hits American audiences today, the third instalment of the Avengers film franchise has already debuted in Asia. With numerous theories and post-credit explanation videos surfacing rapidly each day on the Internet, the Infinity War clip has leaked online.

BE WARNED SPOILERS LAY AHEAD.

The clip above shows a surprise appearance from sometimes SHIELD leaders Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) as they are driving around New York City after the attacks made by Thanos. As Fury tries to connect to Hawkeye, a car with no driver swerves and crashes in front of them. As the unexplainable disappearances continue, we see a suddenly unmanned helicopter crash into the side of a building. Fury turns to Hill, only to see that she too is fading away. Fury quickly takes out a device to send out a distress signal, but fades away. As the pager-like device falls the the ground, the star logo of Captain Marvel soon appears.

But what does this mean? This will set the stage for the upcoming Captain Marvel film and the still named Avengers 4 film. Brie Larson will debut as the hero — aka Carol Danvers — in her ’90s-set solo movie next year alongside Jackson, before playing a key role in the untitled Avengers 4. Watch it above.

Christina Aguilera Gets an Assist From Melissa McCarthy on Carpool Karaoke

When Christina Aguilera made her Carpool Karaoke debut, she didn’t come alone. The singer stopped by The Late Late Show on Monday night to sing some of her songs with James Corden.

Aguilera settled into the passenger seat and sang parts of some of her biggest hits like “Dirrty” and “Genie in a Bottle” alongside Corden, who managed to keep hold of the steering wheel while Aguilera showed off her impressive skills. When she got to “Fighter,” Corden couldn’t help but ask for a few tips on how to make his voice sound a little like hers. “That’s an angsty thing, you’ve got to get your fighter on,” she explained. Corden wasn’t sure he would be able to mimic her at his next karaoke party, though, because he sounded “like I’ve got something trapped in my throat.”

When the duo moved on to singing Aguilera’s 2002 single “Dirrty,” Aguilera revealed her secret weapon—Melissa McCarthy. The actress and comedian appeared in the back seat to deliver a fierce take on Redman’s featured rap, which appeared in the original song.

“You two know each other. You’ve known each other a while, yes?” Corden asked the two stars.

“We’ve known each other a while,” McCarthy said, nodding. “We did a picture together — Life of the Party.”

“Which we obviously are,” Aguilera added. No arguments here.

Congrats! Michelle Williams Gets Engaged To Pastor Chad Johnson

Michelle Williams and her longtime beau Chad Johnson announced their engagement to the world on Thursday!

Williams and Johnson spoke exclusively to People Magazine about their love story–revealing they’ve actually been secretly engaged for over a month.

 

Instagram Photo

 

“We could not contain this any longer!” Williams said to the outlet, clearly tinged with excitement!

The pair revealed that they got engaged on March 21 in Pebble Beach, California, almost a year after they first met. They plan to get married later this summer.

In March of 2017, the two were guests at a spiritual retreat in Arizona, run by Johnson. Johnson, 40, is a pastor and life coach who also serves as the chaplain for the Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Dodgers.

In a recent interview with “The Real” Williams, 37, shared that she was in the midst of a depression and had just ended a relationship prior to meeting her now-fiancee.

“I was in a horrible, dark place,” Williams said, 37. “I just needed to go somewhere where I could get a message of hope and restoration, rejuvenation — get connected to God.”

The two instantly connected, and remained in contact after Johnson’ close friend encouraged they keep in touch. But, a flirty text from Johnson almost ended the romance before it even began.

“I tried to roll in with some mac daddy game — and I tried to flirt a little bit and said something like, ‘How about you and I connect sometime?’ And right away, she texted right back with one word and six question marks behind it: ‘Connect??????’” Johnson said. “I thought she had dissed me. So I was embarrassed, and I didn’t reach back out to her because I thought I’d ruined the friendship.”

However, a week later Williams sent Johnson a DM, responding to an Instagram story Johnson posted him with his nephews.

“The rest is history,” Johnson said. Their texts morphed into calls and spending quality time together. The two went on to share their first kiss last July while in the Dominican Republic for a wedding. There Johnson revealed his true intentions for Williams.

“I told her, ‘I’ve been looking. I don’t want to look anymore. I’m done. My search is over,’” Johnson recalls of the magical moment.

“What kept drawing me and drawing me at first was I felt like I could be myself,” says Williams, who pointed out that Johnson refers to her by her birth name. “My first name is Tenitra; my middle name is Michelle. I felt like I could be Tenitra: just ratchet, I didn’t have to have on any makeup, if I had to have on my hair bonnet — he just made me feel very safe in being myself.”

Johnson planned the whole proposal secretly–earlier in March he flew to her hometown of Rockford, Illinois to ask for her family’s blessing and recorded the whole affair.

A few weeks later the two were enjoying time together in Pebble Beach when Johnson brought up their first failed text exchange.

“We were replaying the whole text message, recreating the moment,” Johnson says. “I was like, ‘Hey, what about if you and me connected?’ She sent me back a text saying, ‘I’ll check my availability.’ And I signaled over to the waiter, and she brought out the iPad and played the video of me being on the proposal tour.”

“I started weeping and wailing when I see all these special people,” Williams said after she watched the video of Johnson’s video with her family. “Towards the end of the video, something in my head said, ‘Pull yourself together! He’s about to propose! Stop all this crying!

Johnson presented Williams with a 5-carat diamond from  L.A. jeweler Denis Mahgerefteh.  “I was just losing it!” Williams said.

Both hope that their interracial love story inspires.

“I’m white, she’s black,” says Johnson. “What a special time for our relationship to be on display in that respect with the tension in the world and in our country.”

As far as whether Williams’ band mates make an appearance, the answer is definitely.

“We’re wanting all of our friends and family to be there. So it’s looking good!”

Congrats to the lovebirds!

Orlando Brown Gets Arrested And Shackled By Bounty Hunters

Orlando Brown 

This is so sad. Former Disney/”That’s So Raven” star Orlando Brown got busted for and outstanding warrant by bounty hunters. They found him in some man’s house in his underwear.

The footage, obtained by TMZ, is from a raid by “Lucky the Bounty Hunter” outfit. It went down in Las Vegas around 6:30am this morning (04-13-18). So yes, Friday the 13th was definitely unlucky for dude. Anyway, it starts with Lucky and his team trying to enter, but getting pushback from the homeowner, who claims they have no legal right

Here’s more from TMZ:

Lucky tells us he had legal paperwork and warrants so they were allowed to enter the home and look for Orlando … so they made it happen by force. After an intense search, they found Brown hiding in a bedroom closet in a t-shirt and boxers and made the arrest.

As we reported … a judge issued a warrant for Brown when he failed to appear in court last month for another case — for allegedly striking his girlfriend last year in Torrance. The owner of the Vegas home tells us he was letting Brown stay there as a favor for a music producer neighbor, but he got concerned about harboring Brown when his fiancee showed up Thursday night … saying he was a fugitive.

The homeowner’s pissed too … he believes his home was entered unlawfully and claims his door was damaged and his shoulder was injured. He plans on contacting authorities soon about the raid to see if his rights were violated.

Check out the footage of the arrest above and below. It’s sad and harrowing. He’s treated like an animal by the bounty hunters. We almost feel sorry for him, but he’s responsible for putting himself in this mess.

Here’s what we reported about that arrest warrant on March 22 …

*Former Disney star Orlando Brown is wanted by police after failing to show for court, reports TMZ.

Court sources say the former “That’s So Raven” star bailed on his scheduled court hearing Wednesday, so the judge issued a bench warrant for his arrest.

Brown’s hearing was for his arrest in January, when a family dispute led cops to discover there was a second active warrant for him, for allegedly striking his girlfriend last year in Torrance.

That arrest resulted in his infamous smiling mug shot.

Who Gets the Pets in a Divorce?

In the last few years, pet custody has become a matter of interest for many state governments. Pet owners, state representatives, and judiciary officials are deciding to treat pets more like children than property in instances of separation or divorce.

Differentiating pets from property in law is bit of a grey area because the debate is fairly new, but since 2017, several states have passed bills that focus on putting a pet’s best interest at the heart of a custody arrangement.

In this post, we’ll discuss how pet custody is handled in the U.S. currently and how it can be managed without going to court by using a Pet Agreement contract.

pet-agreement-kitten

 

American Legislation on Pet Custody

Historically, deciding the ownership of pets in separations and divorces was managed in a similar fashion to how possessions and assets (like valuables, furniture, etc.) were divided among the parties. Recently, that has started to change.

In January 2017, Alaska became the first American state to enact custody legislation specifically for pets, allowing courts to take an animal’s well-being into account during divorce proceedings. The act describes a pet as a “vertebrate living creature not a human being” rather than property (which is the case in most other states).

After the enactment of this legislation in Alaska, many states, such as Rhode Island, Wisconsin, and Illinois, are considering enacting laws that aim to treat pets like companions instead of household furniture in divorce and separation proceedings.

Regardless of legislation, there are still some finer points that need to be ironed out in regards to pet custody because there are some limitations, including:

  • The legislation typically only applies to pets that are considered marital assets, meaning the animal was purchased, adopted, or rescued by the couple once they were committed to one another (e.g. married or common law)
  • If a pet belonged to one person in the couple prior to a romantic commitment, the pet usually remains with that owner; however, visitation or a “joint ownership” can be argued if both parties have shared the responsibility of caring for the pet (e.g. walking the dog, paying for cat food, cleaning out the fish tank, etc.)
  • The legislation doesn’t apply to co-owners in platonic or familial relationships (like roommates or siblings)

pet-custody-agreement

 

Handling Custody with a Pet Agreement

Although there have been advances in pet custody-related legislation in some states, generally there is very little regulation for custody arrangements between separating or divorcing couples.

Creating a Pet Agreement allows spouses to maintain some control over the custody arrangements for their pets beyond what is covered by legislation

A Pet Agreement (sometimes called a pet custody agreement) is a contract that you can use to outline the terms of custody for your pet(s), including:

  • A visitation schedule
  • How costs for care will be divided (e.g. veterinary care, food, toys, litter, etc.)
  • Who the primary owner of the pet is (i.e. who takes care of the pet most of the time)
  • Important details about the pet (e.g. the date of their last visit to a veterinarian, medication lists and schedule)

This kind of agreement allows both parties to have their say in the care of their animal regardless of the parties’ relationship. Owners in any type of relationship (romantic or otherwise) can use this contract to sort out pet care and help avoid disputes and a possibly lengthy court battle.

For example, in 2000, Stanley and Linda Perkins fought for two years in court over custody of their pointer-greyhound mix, Gigi, resulting in close to $ 150,000 in legal fees. It’s likely they could have avoided court if they discussed how custody of their pet might work before their relationship ended.

In some particularly vicious divorce cases, people use their spouse’s emotional attachment to their pet to gain leverage in their separation or divorce proceeding. This problem can potentially be avoided by creating something like a Pet Agreement.

pet-custody-in-divorce

Putting Pet Welfare First

If the trend of animal custody legislation continues, animal welfare will potentially play a larger part in divorce and separation proceedings.

No one likes to think about the potential end of their marriage or relationship, but when your relationship status affects another living creature (like a pet), it’s wise to think about what might change in regards to their care and what’s best for them.

Would you consider creating a pet custody agreement?

“I am thrilled to be joining the board of directors of Netflix, a cutting-edge company whose leadership, high-quality productions, and unique culture I deeply admire,” said Rice.

Rice, 53, served under two presidents—first with the Bill Clinton administration from 1993 to 2007 and under President Barack Obama who appointed her as the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., making her the second youngest person and first African American woman to represent America at the U.N.

Rice began her career at Intellibridge as managing director before joining the Brookings Institute as a management consultant focused on U.S. foreign policy, national security issues, and global poverty. Rice left the Brookings Institute in 2008 to serve as then-candidate Barack Obama’s foreign policy advisor.

A contributing editor at The New York Times, Rice currently serves as Distinguished Visiting Research Fellow at American University’s School of International Service and as a non-resident senior fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

“We are delighted to welcome Ambassador Rice to the Netflix board,” said Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings. “For decades, she has tackled difficult, complex global issues with intelligence, integrity and insight and we look forward to benefiting from her experience and wisdom.”

While Michael B. Jordan announced just a week after the Oscars that he would be adopting the “inclusion rider,” Hastings, whose company is heralded as a prime example of diversity in broadcast programming said his company has no interest in doing such a thing.

Rice’s appointment comes in a month that has seen a number black women take board level roles in some of the world’s largest organizations. Etsy added Edith W. Cooper to its board. Richelle Parham also joined Best Buy’s board of directors and Intel added medical doctor Risa Lavizzo-Mourey to its board.

Rice previously held positions as U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs and as a Special Assistant to President Bill Clinton, as Senior Director, and Director of the National Security Council staff.

From 2009 to 2013, Rice served as U.S. Permanent Representative to the UN and as a cabinet member. In 2013, Rice directed the National Security Council staff, where she chaired the Cabinet-level National Security Principals committee providing daily national security briefings to President Obama. She was responsible for the formulation, coordination, and implementation of all aspects of the administration’s foreign and national security policy, intelligence and military efforts.

A Washington native, Rice is married to Ian Cameron, and they have two children.

Trump Gets the National Security Adviser McMaster Tried to Prevent

Florian Gaertner/Getty

H.R. McMaster went into Donald Trump’s White House an unexpected, out-of-place fit whom his security-field allies hoped would restrain the president. He exits it without an active military career and with his long-cultivated reputation for integrity tarnished by his tumultuous year working for Trump.

And McMaster turns his job over to a right-wing foreign policy expert considered all but bloodthirsty and eager to encourage Trump’s most hawkish instincts—exactly the sort of figure McMaster’s many allies in defense circles feared would rapidly emerge in the wake of McMaster’s departure.

Late Thursday afternoon, Trump finally pushed McMaster out, the culmination of an agonizing few weeks of humiliating leaks that the Army three-star general was a dead man walking.

The Note: Democrats’ ‘big tent’ gets big test in Illinois

The TAKE with Rick Klein

In this year of political turmoil — one that figures to be defined by the opposition to President Donald Trump — the first congressional incumbent to go down could well be a Democrat.

Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Ill., is in real danger of losing the nomination for his own seat in Tuesday’s Illinois primary.

Lipinski is a self-described “big tent party” Democrat who opposes abortion rights and didn’t support Obamacare or even President Barack Obama’s reelection. Marie Newman’s primary challenge has united outside groups like NARAL with some Obama campaign veterans and Sen. Bernie Sanders’ political operation — while isolating the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.

If Newman wins, cue the analyses of Democratic disarray and — to again quote Lipinski — whether there’s a “tea party of the left” set to rock politics — right?

Any incumbent losing a primary is a big deal. But this seat is almost certainly safely in…

Ivy League Doctor Gets 4 Years in Prison for Insys Opioid Kickbacks

A Rhode Island doctor who took kickbacks from Insys Therapeutics Inc. officials for prescribing the company’s highly addictive liquid version of the opioid painkiller Fentanyl was sentenced to more than four years in prison.

Jerrold Rosenberg, who lost his medical license and was ousted from his post as a Brown University professor, pleaded guilty to taking more than $ 188,000 in kickbacks disguised as speaker fees and creating false patient records to dupe insurers into covering Insys’s Subsys pain medication.

“You in effect sold your medical license to a pharmaceutical company,” U.S. District Judge John J. McConnell Jr. said Friday in federal court. “That’s intolerable.” The judge sentenced him to 51 months and ordered restitution of $ 754,000.

Rosenberg is the fourth doctor jailed over Insys bribes following a federal probe that resulted in the indictment of billionaire founder and Chief Executive Officer John Kapoor and six other executives. The group was charged with orchestrating an elaborate scheme to bribe doctors and defraud health-care providers.

Federal prosecutors told the court Rosenberg ignored and bullied patients who resisted staying on the powerful pain-killing spray. At least one of Rosenberg’s patients suffered an overdose and was “near death” as a result of his wrongdoing, the government said in court filings.

‘Grave Betrayal’

Rosenberg’s son was an Insys sales representative for a year and made “substantial commissions” from his father’s willingness to prescribe the drug, according to prosecutors. The son wasn’t charged in the case.

“The doctor’s conduct showed that he set his financial gain above his patients’ interests,” prosecutors said. “It represented a grave betrayal of the duty every physician owes to his or her patients.”

In a seven-page statement to the court, Rosenberg, 63, recounted his medical career and apologized for his crimes. “I have let a lot of people down including myself,” the doctor said. “I committed errors in judgment and allowed my integrity to be compromised.”

In February, Michigan pain-clinic doctor Gavin Awerbuch was sentenced to more than two years in prison after admitting he took sham speaker fees from Insys for prescribing Subsys for no legitimate medical purpose.

Alabama pain clinic doctor John Couch was sentenced last year to 20 years for racketeering after a jury found he took kickbacks for prescribing Subsys. Couch’s partner, Xiulu Ruan, also was sentenced to 21 years in prison for his role in the scheme.

The government contends that when Kapoor saw the bribes were generating more Subsys sales, he pumped more money into speakers’ fees. Prosecutors claim that Kapoor “tightly controlled” the scheme.

Kapoor, who is facing racketeering and conspiracy charges, is slated to go to trial in 2019. He and the other former Insys executives have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The cases are U.S. v. Rosenberg, 17-00009, U.S. District Court, Rhode Island, and U.S. v. Babich, 16-cr-10343, U.S. District Court, Massachusetts.

Danielle Staub Gets Engaged to Marty Caffrey on ‘RHONJ: Secrets Revealed’

There’s no such thing as oversharing – at least, not on The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Secrets Revealed. On the Tuesday, January 31 special episode, the gals all gathered with host Andy Cohen to review never-before-seen footage from the season. While some of the moments were sweet (like Danielle Staub getting engaged), most were … about sex.

Self-Love Never Hurt Anyone

In case you were wondering, Dolores Catania has never masturbated. She does, however, share an uncommonly close bond with her ex-husband, Frank. During a lunch date with Joe Gorga, Frank admitted his true feelings for Dolores. “Dolores is one of the most important people in my life,” he said before adding, “I’ll always be in love with Dolores.” When Joe asked him why they didn’t just get back together and make it official, Frank said he didn’t want to ruin what they had.

Siggy Bought Condoms for Her Son

All of the women seemed to believe that they had or would have very open discussions with their children about sex when the time was right. In fact, Siggy Flicker admitted that she not only had discussed sex with her 18-year-old son, but she had purchased condoms for him. He probably loved his mother announcing that on national TV.

Danielle Gets Engaged

Danielle got engaged, and it was all caught on camera. Teresa Giudice and Margaret Josephs were with Danielle when it happened, and she seemed genuinely shocked. Both Margaret and Teresa broke down in tears as they watched Danielle’s boyfriend propose.

Margaret had joined the mile-high club and Danielle had enjoyed a quickie at Melissa’s family restaurant opening. (No comment.)

Oh No Ma’am: Teen Suffering a Medical Condition Gets Her Wig Snatched Off at School, Family Plans to Prosecute Students Involved [Video]

16-year-old Lauren ‘Lulu’ Williams has turned her humiliation into triumph after classmates at Franklin High School in Tennessee filmed themselves ripping off her wig for a $ 5 bet.

Lauren suffers from psoriasis — a condition that causes severe scalp dryness and hair breakage and loss. She turned to wearing wigs to mask the condition.

The wig was glued and pinned to Lauren’s scalp. As the bully snatched it off, she was left with chunks of her hair missing. The torment didn’t stop there. Another student followed her into the bathroom with a camera as she tried to hide.

“She followed me in there, was laughing, videotaping me over the stall,” Lauren said.

Sadly, the incident was then shared on Snapchat with the caption ‘weave snatching’.

After regaining her composure, Lauren decided to shave her head completely in an effort to stand up against bullying and not thet them win.

“My hair was one of my biggest insecurities so I felt like he had taken my power and I wanted it back,” explained Lauren.  “When I walk around with a bald head he’ll know that he didn’t do anything but give me more power to speak out to other people.”

Her mother took to social to express her outrage and concern.

“Yesterday I received a call from my youngest daughter screaming and crying on the phone, for me to come and get her from school. 

Apparently, some boys had taken a $ 5 BET about pulling her wig off in front of everyone. Lulu has a scalp condition that causes severe dryness and hair breakage and loss, and had been so ashamed of her appearance that she had taken to wearing wigs in an effort to still feel beautiful. We all know how easy it is to feel insecure at age 16.

These kids not only tore her wig off in the middle of school, but video taped it. They followed her to the bathroom as she screamed and cried and proceeded to tape her OVER the stall as she cried and begged for her wig.

Later I had to take her to the hospital for abrasions and whiplash.

Lulu later decided to shave her hair off and not let these bullies win. She was not wanting to feel controlled by her hair any longer, and take back her control. I am only posting this with her permission but yesterday our entire family was angered and in tears about the way she was treated.

The teen suicide rate has now DOUBLED and bullying has played a HUGE Role.

If you have a teen in this situation, continue to uplift them and let them know that they are strong and beautiful and can own thier insecurities and take control rather than being controlled.

I admire the strength and beauty of my little Lulu and know that she will inspire many others even through this difficult time in her life.
#SayNoToShaming2018

Please share Lulu’s story if you have or know a teen who needs to know they are beautiful no matter what! Let’s empower other young girls to reclaim Thier Power!

Bullies will not win in 2018.”

Officials with Williamson County Schools released the following statement regarding the incident.

The Franklin High administration and the School Resource Officer immediately began investigating an incident when it was reported to them Friday afternoon. This type of behavior can never be tolerated at school. In addition to school discipline, WCS prosecutes delinquent behavior to the fullest extent of the law.

The Williams plan to prosecute the students involved to the fullest extent of the law. Check out Lauren’s mother’s post below.

World’s Smallest Baby Who Weighed the Same as a Candy Bar Finally Gets to Go Home — See How She’s Grown! [PHOTOS]

baby girl Manusi world's smallest baby born .88 lb header

Do you believe in miracles? Well, if not, meet the world’s smallest, BIGGEST fighter. Back in June of last year, a baby girl born at just 28 weeks old, entered the world weighing only 0.88 lb — the same as a large, Cardbury chocolate egg and 0.12 oz less than one pound! Named Manushi, her foot was the size of her dad’s thumbnail, and she became one of the world’s smallest babies to ever survive such extreme premature conditions.

During the time of her birth, Manushi, from Rajasthan, India, measured in at only only 8.6 inches long, not breathing, with “paper thin skin and underdeveloped organs.” Born to mother Seeta, 48, and father Giriraj, 50, Manushi was given a 0.5 percent chance of surviving without brain damage. However, doctors say she “appears intellectually normal,” thus far.

According to her doctors, Manushi actually lost weight the first few days of life, since she could not be fed adequately due to the immaturity of her digestive organs. She had to be placed on parenteral nutrition, which means giving her amino acids, lipids, minerals, multivitamins, etc. Baby girl also had to be placed on advanced respiratory support due to underdeveloped lungs, and also underwent blood transfusions.

Fast forward, and the married couple of 35 years are finally taking their daughter home after a six month hospital stay. Manushi currently weighs in at just 5.2 lbs, but seems to be showing steady progress.
