Gabrielle Union Shares The Pain Of Her Struggle With Infertilty

Gabrielle Union seems to be the girl who has everything. She’s got a successful career, she’s got a wealthy, handsome husband, three bonus children and a great Instagram presence. But one thing she doesn’t have is a baby of her own.

In her book We’re Going To Need More Wine, Union revealed that her attempts to get pregnant led to multiple miscarriages. Rounds of IVF didn’t work and finally, she was diagnosed with adenomyosis, a situation akin to endometriosis where the uterine lining grows into the uterine wall, making pregnancy difficult.

Instagram Photo

 

On the Dr. Oz show, Union, often seeming close to tears, said that she wanted to go public with her pregnancy challenges so other women didn’t feel ashamed or defeated by infertility issues.

Watch the interview below:

Union will star as an L.A. police officer on the show LA’s Finest, which will have a 13 episode run on a Charter Communications channel.

Amy Adams’ Mane Man Shares His Summer Dry Shampoo Hacks

We are all about that hair — and makeup too! Here at Stylish, we’ve never seen a hairstyle or makeup trend we couldn’t talk about for days on end, so we started a podcast to dish on all the latest beauty news — from hits and misses on the red carpet to celebrity hair and makeup gurus’ dos and don’ts. Each week, Us Weekly beauty director Gwen Flamberg talks with some of the best in the biz about what’s new in hair, makeup and style in our Get Tressed With Us podcast. Listen above!

This week, Gwen and Us Weekly deputy beauty and style director Beth Shapouri welcomed a celebrity hair guru John D. (the man behind Amy Adams’ luscious locks) to talk all things summer styling — from the best dry shampoo hacks to the easiest summer styling tips and tricks.

While keeping hair looking bouncy and full during hot and humid temps can seem all but impossible, John, who is also a TRESemme celebrity stylist, is all about the dry shampoo. The brand offers an array of options (from volumizing to deodorizing to texturizing), and he recommends a spritz for guys and gals no matter their hair length or texture to keep tresses fresh and touchable while still maintaining shape and style.

Speaking of style, John believes in “practicality” during the summer months. Braids, ponytails and buns never fail to look cool and put together no matter how high the mercury rises. But if you still find yourself dealing with annoying flyaways or a frizzy hairline, he has a genius hack for that. John keeps a teeny tiny boar-bristle brush (a good ol’ fashion toothbrush works just as well!) in his kit at all times that he lightly sprays with hairspray or any holding mist to gently coax the errant strands into place.

And while it may be tempting to douse your mane in dry shampoo — or any product for that matter — when dealing with unruly tresses or after going a few nights in between washes, the mane man emphasizes that less is more. “Start with a little and build,” he shares of applying styling creams and sprays, “that way you never have to wash your hair and start over.”

Beyoncé Shares a Sweet Photo of Twins Rumi and Sir on Their Family Vacation in Europe

Beyoncé has pulled back the curtain on her family life a bit more by sharing a sweet photo of her twins.

The “Love on Top” singer, 36, shared the photo of herself holding her 13-month-old twins Rumi and Sir in her lap during a family trip to Europe on her website Wednesday.

In the photo, Beyoncé looks off to the side as she smiles, while her daughter Rumi follows her gaze and giggles. Her son, Sir, appears a bit more serious as he glances down in deep thought.

In a second photo, her husband JAY-Z is pictured on the deck of their yacht holding onto Rumi’s hand. The tot adorably was dressed in a little white tank top and a yellow ruffled skirt.

Beyoncé also posed with the couple’s 6-year-old daughter Blue Ivy in a cute photo in which they wore similar pink dresses.

This is not the first time a photo of the twins has made it onto the Internet: grandma Tina Knowles Lawson previously shared a photo of her grandchildren last month, and the “Halo” singer famously shared a stunning maternity portrait of the three of them one month after their births in July 2017.

The couple is famously private when it comes to their children, but in January, JAY-Z couldn’t help but gush about the newest additions to the Carter crew.

“We are in a beautiful time now because they are seven months and they can’t move,” the 48-year-old rapper joked in an interview with CNN’s Van Jones. “They can just coo … they just coo and you don’t have to, ‘Wait, wait, wait, wait.’ ”

The parents of three decided to bring their children on the road with them for their joint On the Run Tour II, which kicked off June 6 in Cardiff, U.K.

“They are incredibly excited. It took a lot of work to make this happen. It’s the best choice for their family,” a source told PEOPLE of the couple.

Cardi B Shares Reunion with Offset After His Arrest for Gun Possession: ‘Home’

Husband and wife have been reunited.

Offset returned home to Cardi B just one day after his arrest for gun and drug possession in Clayton County, Georgia. His arrest came just 10 days after he and Cardi B welcomed their first child together, daughter Kulture Kiari.

The new mother, 25, shared a Boomerang of herself and Offset, né Kiari Kendrell Cephus, on her Instagram Story on Saturday after his arraignment.

“Home,” she wrote in the caption as she sat on a chair and he stood over her in just a pair of yellow pants.

In another post, the “Be Careful” rapper set the record straight when it came to details of her husband’s arrest.

“For the record Offset is NOT ON PROBATION,” she wrote with an unamused emoji and an eye-rolling emoji.

The 26-year-old musician, who is a convicted felon, was pulled over in his 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera in Jonesboro, Georgia, on Friday. Officers spotted him performing an improper lane change, according to a police statement obtained by PEOPLE.

As officers approached his vehicle, they allegedly detected the smell of marijuana and proceeded to conduct a search. They found three handguns, less than an ounce of marijuana and more than $ 107,000 in cash.

Offset was charged with possession of marijuana (less than an ounce), possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime and an improper lane change.

He was held at the Clayton County Jail on bond, which has been posted, his lawyer Drew Findling told PEOPLE.

Findling said the rapper’s main priority was his wife and their newborn daughter.

Findling also said the Migos rapper was not guilty of any crime.

“He did not commit any traffic offense and he certainly was not in possession of any weapons,” Findling told PEOPLE. “This was an improper arrest and I believe in his innocence.”

The attorney added: “ holding up as best he can considering the circumstances and knows he has not broken any laws. He is going to have his day in court.”

She’s the first child for Cardi B and the fourth for Offset. He has three children from previous relationships: sons Jordan and Kody and daughter Kalea Marie.

Just five days ago, Offset was seen cuddling with Cardi B, born Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, during a doctor’s visit for Kulture.

Selena Gomez’s Mom Shares Video of the Singer as a Sassy 5-Year-Old: ‘Why Do They Grow Up?’

Selena Gomez‘s mother, Mandy Teefey, just shared a major throwback from the “Wolves” singer’s childhood.

Teefey, 42, shared an adorable video of the pop star, 25, from 1997 when the singer was just 5 years old. In the video, Gomez, wearing two pigtails, is seen showing off her sass as she talked to her mother on the phone and complained about homework.

@selenagomez talking to me on the phone when I was at work asking about her day at school,” Teefey wrote in the caption. “My sassy, independent, boss lady, adorable gigantic piece of my heart, first born love.”

“Gracie is exactly like this. Diabolical. XO,” the mother of two continued, referring to her second daughter, 5-year-old Gracie Elliot. “My girls are born leaders. Why do they grow up? Her sweet little eyes and massive eyelashes.”

In the footage, Gomez tells her mother about a homework assignment she had to do again at her teacher’s request.

“My teacher said I gotta do all this stuff again. I gotta do it by myself,” the tot said in the video. “I’m going crazy, you gotta help me over here! You better girl.”

Gomez’s father is Ricardo Joel Gomez. Teefey and Ricardo are divorced and Teffey married Brian Teefey in 2006 and shares Gracie Elliot with him.

In December, a source close to the family told PEOPLE the two had become estranged and not just because of Gomez’s then-reunion with Justin Bieber.

“It’s more complicated than just fighting over a guy,” the source said. “Mandy and Selena have had their ups and downs before. This isn’t the first time.”

While the two weren’t speaking, the insider said Gomez “also wants to give her mom some space.”

“When they fight, they fight hard,” the source said. “But when they love, they also love hard.”

Gomez reunited with Bieber last year and spent New Year’s with the “Sorry” singer in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico after she split with The Weeknd (née Abel Tesfaye) in October.

RELATED VIDEO: Selena Gomez Isn’t Currently Speaking to Mom Mandy Teefey and Wants to ‘Give Her Space’: Source

A source told PEOPLE at the time that the two were “doing great.”

Weeks later, Teefey admitted she was “not happy” about her daughter’s rekindled romance with Bieber during an interview with Gossip Cop.

She also revealed she had not spoken to Bieber in “years,” although she said she knew Gomez was old enough to “make her own choices.”

“Selena can live her life however she wants as long a she is happy, safe and healthy,” Teefey said. “She is 25-years-old and knows what is at stake with her health.”

But it seems mom knows best, as Gomez and Beiber’s relationship did not last. And now, not only has the Baby singer reunited with former-ex Hailey Baldwin, this week he proposed to her.

‘Bath Time!’ Chrissy Teigen Shares Adorable Video of Daughter Luna Covering Her Face in Bubbles

Chrissy Teigen‘s daughter certainly is a water baby!

Luna, 2, had fun during her bath time on Thursday night as she bathed alongside her mother, 32.

🛁,” Teigen wrote for the simple caption of a video of their water-filled adventure on Instagram.

The model couldn’t help but laugh in the video as Luna grabbed a handful of bubbles in her hands and wiped them off on Teigen’s face.

Before their dip in the black marble tub, Teigen shared a video of her daughter carrying a yellow tub of toys, which included a big rubber, yellow duck and the caption, “Bath Time!”

“Put your stuff in there!” Teigen told Luna as the little girl bent over her crate and tossed the duck inside of the bath tub.

The mom of two welcomed her second child, son Miles Theodore on May 16, with husband John Legend. Earlier this week, Teigen shared a sweet photo of her baby boy lounging on a yellow giraffe print pillow in a coordinating giraffe patterned onesie.

“Hey dudes,” Teigen captioned the photo.

The model conceived her two children through IVF, a process she told one fan in the comments section she was “all for talking about.”

“I know IVF was used for Luna was it used for baby brother also?” The follower asked her. Though other followers criticized that fan for the personal inquiry, Teigen did not shy away from talking about the process.

“I wasn’t offended by it — people are just curious and I think hearing success stories gives people hope. I’m all for talking about IVF,” the Lip Sync Battle star replied.

Teigen has been candid in the past about her and Legend’s struggle to conceive, even getting fielded with nonstop questions about starting a family since they got married in September 2013.

RELATED VIDEO: Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Share Their Son’s Name and Introduce Him in Adorable First Photo

The model previously told PEOPLE in February that she chose to undergo IVF again more than two years after choosing to implant a female embryo that resulted in the pregnancy with Luna.

“You do the whole process again to try to get as many embryos and eggs as possible,” Teigen explained of the artificial insemination. “Everyone is freezing everything. … For me, I just want to gather as many as possible. I don’t want to do this again for the rest of my life.”

In January, Teigen confirmed that she and Legend conceived Miles through IVF after she previously said “a little boy is next.”

Kaiser Permanente Psychiatrist Shares What Drives Him to Study Mental Health

We asked these five questions of Greg Simon, MD, MPH, psychiatrist, Kaiser Permanente Washington and a senior investigator at Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute.

What got you interested in mental health?

As a first-year medical student, I took a personality test that predicted I would end up a psychiatrist. I just laughed at how silly that was. But my clinical rotations convinced me that psychiatry really is the most interesting part of medicine, so the laugh ended up being on me.

What spurred you to do research about mental health?

I grew up in Louisiana, studied in Texas and North Carolina, and caught the public health research bug in the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars program at the University of Washington.

Dr. Simon (left) with his daughter and son on Mount Rainier.

Dr. Simon (left) with his daughter and son on Mount Rainier.

During that training program, I met Ed Wagner and Michael Von Korff at what was then the Center for Health Studies at Group Health Cooperative — later Group Health Research Institute and now Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute. Ed was the center’s founding director, and Michael is a senior investigator who became my close collaborator. Ed and Michael were some of the first people to imagine population-based mental health care — considering everyone in need of care rather than just people already receiving care.

I was drawn into that vision, and I’ve stayed for 27 years, developing and testing various population-based mental health programs for the members of Group Health and now Kaiser Permanente.

What excites you most about the research you’re doing now?

I am excited about doing the research our members need, and ensuring that our research findings are really changing practice. Our work on suicide prevention is probably the best example of that. Kaiser Permanente has become a national leader — in both research and quality improvement — in suicide prevention. And we’ve developed ways to provide flexible, patient-centered psychotherapy programs organized around peoples’ preferences and values and delivered using 21st-century tools, so patients can engage as they want to engage.

I’ve been leading the Mental Health Research Network for the past several years. The MHRN, part of the Health Care Systems Research Network, is national resource for research: a consortium of 13 health system research centers (including seven Kaiser Permanente centers), embedded in large and diverse health care systems.

Supported by the National Institute of Mental Health, the network is dedicated to improving patients’ mental health through research, practice and policy. Our multidisciplinary researchers have expertise not only in mental health research but also in epidemiology, health services, economics, disparities, pragmatic clinical trials, and outcomes and quality assessment. It’s all about collaboration, and we’re always ready to partner with new people and explore new ideas.

Dr. Simon on Silver Peak in the Cascade Range.

Dr. Simon on Silver Peak in the Cascade Range.

Any advice for the public around Mental Health Month?

Mental health and mental health care are less complicated and mysterious than most people think. Psychiatrists and therapists don’t read minds, so you do have to tell them what you’re thinking and feeling. The things they suggest won’t be a big surprise. It’s all about sticking with it.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I’m a skiing fanatic, so that puts me out of sync with most Seattleites’ weather woes. When it’s yet another rainy 40-degree day in the city, I’m eagerly checking how fast the snow is piling up in the mountains. That’s what cognitive therapists call a reframe.

‘U took ur belly photo down 😢 don’t let them haters get to u. Just shut off the comments,’ a disappointed fan noticed and advised Kenya not to care so much about the haters and their messages. It seems that she took the fan’s advice and shut down the comments.

We really hope that Kenya enjoys her pregnancy and has enough strength to not care about the haters and what they’re saying regarding her pregnancy.

Carrie Underwood Shares Selfie as She Performs at the Grand Ole Opry for First Time Since Accident

Carrie Underwood is returning to her roots.

The Grammy Award winner gave a rousing performance at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, on Friday night to celebrate her 10-year anniversary since she became a member of the legendary concert hall.

Underwood, 35, shared a selfie of herself on Instagram before taking the stage, writing in the caption, “10 year anniversary #OprySelfie @opry ❤❤❤.”

The Grand Ole Opry’s Instagram account also shared videos of the momentous occasion on its Instagram Story. As part of her set, the singer sang some of her hits including “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” “Cry Pretty” and “Temporary Home.” She also sang a Randy Travis classic, “An Old Pair of Shoes.”

To round out the night, Underwood was surprised by Travis himself onstage with a bouquet of flowers. It was a full circle moment as it was Travis who invited Underwood to join the institution during a show in March 2008.

In a photo of Travis and Underwood, the institution wrote in the caption, “A surprise visit from RANDY TRAVIS to celebrate!”

Another caption on the same photo read, “It was Randy Travis who invited @carrieunderwood to join the #Opry 10 years ago, and he made a surprise visit to celebrate with her tonight! ✨ #OnlyTheOpry.”

While onstage, Underwood told the cheering crowd, “This is my anniversary tonight. And we are very glad that you guys are here to celebrate with us!”

Underwood has been hard at work for her forthcoming album, titled Cry Pretty — her first work since she fell down the steps of her home and needed over 40 stitches on her face.

RELATED VIDEO: Carrie Underwood Details Accident for First Time — and Says She Wasn’t Hiding: ‘I’m Okay Talking About It!’

Last week, the mother of one released the music video for her album’s first single, “Cry Pretty,” in which the star can be seen crying in the shower before making a triumphant return to the stage and handling the pressures of fame.

She opened up to Today show’s Hoda Kotb about the accident and her recovery from the facial injuries and a broken wrist.

“Plain and simple, it was just kind of a freak accident,” Underwood told Kotb. “I just fell. I just tripped taking my dogs out to do their business. It could happen to anybody.”

She added, “I say if I would have fallen anywhere else, it wouldn’t have been a problem. There was one little step that I went to catch myself on and I missed.”

Roz Brooks Shares 5 Phenomenal Secrets from the C-Suite

Most of us hear words like taxation and either groan, panic, or doze off. But not Roslyn Brooks. This leader of PwC’s (PricewaterhouseCoopers) Government Regulatory Affairs & Public Policy office in Washington, DC, built her career in the firm’s tax practice, making a mighty impression even as a neophyte. More than a dozen years ago, Brooks leapt into the government and public policy arena where she continues to have high impact—and helps lead the world’s second-largest professional services firm.

How did she reach the top, and more importantly, how can you? Brooks wasn’t taxed by the question at all. She fired back with these tips:

5 Secrets from the C-suite

1. Don’t pick a lane—do you!

Brooks’ educational background demonstrates a passion for literature, science, and finance, as well as a refusal to pick just one. She holds a bachelor’s in English and Psychology from Stanford, a J.D. from the University of Michigan, and a master’s in taxation law.

2. Go with the flow.

By the time Brooks weathered the inherent transitions that came with the 1998 merger between accounting firms Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand, she had already shifted from a practice office to a technical office; from client service to internal firm service; and taken on assignments that required her to relocate from Detroit to New York to DC. In a global corporate universe driven by constant disruption, adaptability can be your most valuable skill. “My demonstrated ability to adapt to change has been instrumental to my success – and my sanity!” she says.

3. Do the extra credit.

Intellectual curiosity is an asset—use it! As a new associate tasked with preparing a tax return for a business with 10 subsidiaries, Brooks could have simply followed the template from the previous year. However, she wanted a detailed understanding of the numbers, even though that would take more time than the assigning partner had budgeted.

When he asked to meet with her, Brooks didn’t know what to expect. “He asked me to walk him through the return and questioned the rationale behind certain numbers,” she recalls. “When I was able to, he was surprised and wanted to know how I knew what I knew.”

After Brooks explained, that partner took an interest in her career development and became a much-valued sponsor. “Success takes more than just hard work and intellect,” she says. “It takes recognition, encouragement, and sponsorship. I don’t believe [he would have become my sponsor] if I simply had gotten it right but didn’t care to know why.”

4. Be a trailblazer.

Brooks didn’t set out to be one, but she didn’t blink when her consistent record of performance and leadership at PwC earned her a coveted place as the first black woman on the firm’s U.S. executive management team.

5. Stay ready, and stay hungry. No matter what you’ve achieved, you can always level up. It sometimes happens, however, that the higher we go, the more self-limiting we become. Picture the EVP who starts to coast, believing that the CEO slot is unattainable. Or the company founder who has a news-making exit and never starts another company, believing that lightning can’t strike twice.

“Once you obtain a promotion or hit a career milestone, it may be tempting to think, ‘I’m at a good place, I can relax,’” says Brooks. “This may be true especially as you juggle other commitments and interests that are important to you in life.” But fight the feeling, she insists, and stay focused on the biggest picture your imagination can concoct. “I think it’s just as important to keep your mind and eyes open to new opportunities that excite you. Stay ready and never give up on your own growth.”

Twinkie Clark Shares ‘Hallelujah’ The Stage Play On The Clark Sisters

Wendy Williams didn’t know what she nests she knocked on when she came for the Clark Sisters on her show. Fans were not pleased and handled it quickly. Twinkie Clark of the gospel group says Williams is welcomed to come to her stage play Hallelujah.

“It would be nice if she came out,” explained Twinkie. “It would certainly clear the air.” There’s a new stage play called Hallelujah that chronicles the life and career of the Clark Sisters.

“They call us the legendary Clark Sisters and I think that all that comes from the years that we’ve got into the music,” explained Twinkie. “How we started out with our father being the pastor of the church and my mother the director of the choir and the Lord had opened many doors to where we are now.”

Larry Clark, Twinkie’s nephew wrote the play and likens it to a Broadway show.

“It’s 7 decades and 2 hours long. From 1957 to 2018,” expressed Larry. “It’s a lot to cover…it’s sort of like Broadway, we move really quickly.”

If you’re in Detroit, check out the show on May 12-13.

Carrie Underwood Shares Close-Up Video of Face as She Jokes About Husband’s ‘Annoying’ Behavior

Carrie Underwood didn’t shy away from the cameras as she shared a video playfully documenting her husband’s “annoying” behavior on Saturday.

While driving in the car with her husband Mike Fisher, Underwood took a close-up video of her face — which is still healing from a scary accident in November that left her needing over 40 stitches — on her Instagram Story.

In the video, the 35-year-old singer looked directly at the camera and softly said, “Help me,” while her husband appeared to be making a squeaking noise over and over into his hands while driving.

“Must we? So annoying,” she wrote alongside the video.

RELATED: Carrie Underwood Shares Close-Up Photo of Her Face Revealing Her Scars Following Her Scary Fall

Opening up about her frightening fall for the first time last week, the American Idol winner revealed her accident happened when she was taking her dogs out for a quick walk.

“I was taking the dogs out to go pee one last time, and I just — I tripped,” she said on iHeartRadio’s The Bobby Bones Show. “There was one step, and I didn’t let go of the leashes! Priorities! So that’s why my left hand’s fine. But I went to catch myself and I just missed a step.”

“If I had fallen anywhere else, I would have been perfectly fine. But it was one step that messed everything up,” she added.

RELATED: Carrie Underwood Details Accident for First Time — and Says She Wasn’t Hiding: ‘I’m Okay Talking About It!’

The country star previously showed off her scars, which are located around her upper lip and chin, while supporting Fisher and his hockey team, the Nashville Predators, on April 21.

“Ready to cheer on the boys tonight! Especially that #12! I hear he’s alright! 😘 @mfisher1212 @predsnhl#LetsGoPreds,” Underwood captioned the snap.

A source close to Underwood previously told PEOPLE the singer — whose sixth studio album Cry Pretty drops Sept. 14 — looks “gorgeous in person.”

You honestly couldn’t see any scarring even up close,” said the source. “She had extensive reconstruction done around her mouth area and lips, but the doctors did a really great job obviously.”

Dean Unglert Shares Cryptic Message About Love After Lesley Murphy Split

Dean Unglert is doing some serious reflecting. The Bachelor Winter Games star wrote a cryptic Instagram post on Saturday, April 7, one day after the news broke that he had reportedly split from Bachelor alum Lesley Murphy.

Unglert, 26, and Murphy, 30, called it quits after four months together due to the distance between them, E! News reported. While the pair has not yet confirmed the news, The Bachelorette vet did hint at it on social media.

“Growing up as a kid I had a crude but utopian idea of what love is. I always had this idea that no matter what you did, no matter how you act, as long as you’re true to yourself and act in good conscious, your path would lead you to the one person on this planet you’re meant to be with,” Unglert captioned the photo of himself. “As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that although everyone DESERVES love, it’s not something we’re entitled to. Love takes work. Love is compromise. Love is earned. I still have a lot of work to do on myself, a lot to prove to myself, before I’m ready for something like that.”

Unglert started his TV journey for love during Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette then went on to Bachelor in Paradise where he found himself in a love triangle with Danielle Lombard and Kristina Schulman. However, he appeared to find real love during The Bachelor: Winter Games. Following the season, Unglert gave Murphy a key to his place.

Millennial Moves: Luvvie Ajayi shares some of her money lessons

If you’re serious about managing your money and taking actionable steps to reaching your financial goals, it might help to get some insight from Luvvie Ajayi. The New York Times best-selling author, advocate, blogger, TED speaker, award-winning writer, and now, podcaster, chatted finances on the “MAKERS Money” series last week, hosted by Sallie Krawcheck, CEO and co-Founder of Ellevest, the digital investment and planning company geared toward women.

Ajayi captured the attention of many after the instant success of her 2016 best-selling book, I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual, a series of her thoughtful and witty essays that dished up some much-needed social commentary and called out bad behavior in our current culture. Her straightforward and sassy voice attracted Oprah Winfrey, who selected her as part of the inaugural SuperSoul 100 list, and Shonda Rhimes, who in 2017 acquired the rights to Ajayi’s book in an effort to develop her first comedy series for cable TV.

Ajayi’s inspirational TED Talk on how to get comfortable with being uncomfortable has over 1 million views and counting. And recently, she also made headlines for co-creating blackwomeninpolitics.com, an online database of all the black women running for office in 2018.

 

With such an extensive list of accomplishments and a message that attracts the masses, we figured the BE audience would be interested in hearing what she has to say about managing finances. The women behind MAKERS were interested too.

“The future of women’s leadership is alive and well and there was no better way for us to showcase that leadership than to have a stand out like Luvvie Ajayi on the “MAKERS Money” series, said Nancy Armstrong,  executive producer of the “MAKERS Money” series and executive producer at MAKERS, the media platform that showcases the stories of trailblazing women. The series, created and produced by MAKERS and Yahoo Finance in partnership with Ellevest, features weekly advice for women from top female financial experts.

When given the opportunity to catch up with Ajayi in light of the “MAKERS Money” episode, which you can find here, we couldn’t say no. The influencer and thought-leader shared some of her personal experiences with money and why it’s important to gain and improve money management skills.

How important are money and financial health to you? Why?

Financial health is important because when you have a strong financial platform, that’s one less thing to worry about, especially when you’re running your own business.

You said the stupidest thing you did with your money was to keep it in a savings account. How so? And how did you change that?

We’ve been told too many times to put our money in a savings account, we say that’s all we need to do. But there the money is rarely growing, there’s a less than 1% growth. In that sense, it’s like you’re losing money and it’s not doing anything, it’s just stagnant and losing value. When I started making money I realized I could be doing more with it. When you’re investing your money, you can easily get a 4% return.

What would you say to the woman who is considering investing her money but is afraid to?
I would say get a financial adviser, you don’t have to jump into the well by yourself. If you’re not an expert at something you’re bound to feel less confident at doing it, so you want to get more educated and know what you’re putting your money into, know what it means to invest. A financial adviser will walk you through it easily.

You said the smartest thing you did with your money was to buy your own home. Why was that the smartest thing you did, and why is that so important to you?

It’s one of the biggest kinds of investments and it’s a commitment. I think it’s a goal people should strive for but I don’t necessarily think that not owning a home makes you a bad financial planner; it’s different for everybody.

As you were in your journey from being laid off to becoming the successful, influential person you are today, were there any money habits that you adhered to? How did you address the financial uncertainty that comes with transitions like that?

I tried to live below my means at that time. I tried to save for a time, putting some money away, and that’s the habit you need.

Who would you say is your best financial adviser?

There is not just one person, I did a lot of studying, read a lot of books, read a lot of websites. But it would probably be my mom—she’s always lived below her means too, so I probably got some of that from her. she was never wasteful.

Self-care and finances, do you see a correlation between the two? How can we use our finances and the habits we develop around our money as a form of self-care? 

[The money-saving habits] provide something less for you to worry about. You’ll have disposable income, you can then go get massages or facials on a regular basis. Everything is tied to money, especially self-care. And when you have disposable income, you have more room to do the things that might increase your value of life.

Why do you think that women should have conversations about money & finances?

I’m glad to have had the opportunity to talk about finances on MAKERS. A lot of times men are told how to grow and spend their money, and women are often left out of that conversation.

John Stamos Hilariously Shares Photo of Himself with a Faux Baby Bump: ‘Can’t Wait for Fatherhood’

John Stamos “can’t wait” to become a father as he shared a funny Instagram photo of himself wearing a fake baby bump.

The Fuller House actor couldn’t help but crack a joke with an old photo of himself on the set of Full House wearing a white T-shirt with the words “Bun in the Oven” written across it.

Stamos, 54, who is expecting his first child with wife Caitlin McHugh, expressed his humor and excitement at his impending fatherhood in a sweet caption, writing, “This is the longest 9 months of my life! #cantwait 4 #fatherhood.”

The couple tied the knot on Feb. 3 in Studio City, California, a source told PEOPLE. The reception was held at Stamos’ home in Beverly Hills.

Stamos proposed to McHugh after almost two years of dating in October 2017 at Disneyland — one of McHugh’s favorite places. She is an active Disneybounder, a superfan who dresses up in character at the amusement park.

“The happened. Then I said, I better have a ring on her finger because it’s the right thing to do, and I wanted to marry her anyway,” Stamos told PEOPLE exclusively in December. “So I called her parents to ask, and it was like, ‘You better!’”

“She loves Disneyland and , I got on my knee and asked her,” Stamos said. “I pulled the ring out. I don’t know how she did it, but she went to hug me and slipped her finger right in it. When the park closed, we ran around the park in our Disney onesies.”

Bella Hadid Shares Throwback Photo of Her and Kendall Jenner Taking a Topless Swim in the Ocean

What happens on vacation stays on vacation … unless you post the proof to social media!

On Saturday, Bella Hadid shared a throwback photo of herself and pal Kendall Jenner running out into the ocean for a little topless swim — with their bikini tops still in their hands.

In the risqué snap, the supermodel friends are joined by two of their mutual friends, singer Justine Skye and photographer Renell Medrano, all of whom were wearing cheeky pairs of thong bathing suit bottoms.

“Woke up missing this pureeee love. 💙🦋” Hadid, 21, wrote alongside the sun-filled snap.

While Hadid didn’t specify which vacation the shot was from, it could have taken on the tropical vacation the famous friends enjoyed together in May 2017. In photos documenting that fun-filled trip, the models appeared to be wearing very similar bathing suits to the ones they were (partly) wearing in Hadid’s throwback snap.

Tiffany Haddish Shares Dream of Hosting the Oscars One Day (VIDEO)

tiffany haddish

Tiffany Haddish has been killing it since her breakout role in 2017 summer hit, Girls Trip, recently hitting the Academy Awards stage to co-present an award alongside fellow funny lady, Maya Rudolph.

During a recent SXSW panel discussion, Variety reports the stand-up spoke of potentially hosting the industry’s most respected awards show one day, following in the footsteps of Whoopi Goldberg, Chris Rock and more.

“That would be a dream come true. I know my father would be extremely proud if I got to do that,” she said. “As long as I get a paycheck.”

 

Speaking of a paycheck, the South Central, Los Angeles comic admitted during the same discussion that she thought her recent Oscar appearance would come with compensation.

“In my mind, Maya [Rudolph] and I, we auditioned for the ultimate job because I thought we was getting paid for that presentation,” she said. “And then I found out we didn’t get paid, then I was like, ‘I heard about gift bags.’ And then they were like, ‘We don’t got no gift bags,’ and then I was like, ‘Well, what do I get?’ and they [said], ‘We got a bottle of wine that’s like $ 13.’ So, I had to buy the wine.”

Kylie Jenner shares first full picture of Stormi

OHMYGOSSIP — Kylie Jenner has shared the first full picture of her daughter Stormi.
The 20-year-old lip kit mogul welcomed her first child – whom she has with boyfriend Travis Scott – into the world just over a month ago on February 1, and on Snapchat on Saturday (03.03.18), the star showed fans what the tot looks like for the very first time.
Kylie has posted pictures of Stormi on social media before but they have always been obscured slightly, such as one picture which showed her hand holding Kylie’s thumb with her face out of focus in the background, and another where Kylie is holding her, with the tot facing away from the camera.
The ‘Life of Kylie’ star uploaded a short video clip to the photo sharing site on Saturday, which showed Stormi sucking on her pacifier.
Kylie wrote alongside it: “my pretty girl (sic)”
It comes after sources recently revealed the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star is “super hands-on” when it comes to parenting her tot, and although she does have help, she is “actively involved” in all aspects of motherhood, including changing diapers.
A source said: “Kylie is one month into being a mom and still loving it. It’s exhausting, but she loves that she’s a mom and is honestly really enjoying all the responsibility that has come along with it.
“She absolutely gets her hands dirty changing diapers on the regular and is really attentive and makes sure Stormi is eating and sleeping enough. Kylie is super hands-on and actively involved, but of course she has help.”
Kylie has been keeping fans up to date with Stormi’s first few weeks in the world since she was born, and has posted a handful of photos and videos of her baby on social media.
And recently, it was claimed the star is “completely in love” with Stormi and enjoying being a mother for the first time.
A source said: “It’s been a big adjustment for Kylie, but she’s loving be a mom and watching all of the little things that Stormi is doing each day. She’s exhausted and emotional, but she’s also completely in love.”

‘Insecure’ Star Langston Kerman Shares Life As ‘Rent-A-Boo’ Guy

Langston Kerman aka “Rent-A-Boo” from Insecure has a lot of hidden talents that most people would not know about him. He’s taught high school English, has a masters in poetry and is a stand up comedian!

“Yah it’s a waste of time don’t do it,” said Kerman of his masters degree. “If y’all were going to go back to school do something else.”

Being on Insecure has changed so many things and brought new opportunities for him. “It changed everything man. It really has,” expressed Kerman. “I am rent-a-boo for the rest of my life but it’s been a nice thing to have people recognize me.”

Most people are not familiar with Kerman’s stand up career but he hopes to change that.”But people don’t know I’m funny. I’ve been doing stand up for 8 years,” he said.

His type of comedy is more of a punchy approach. “I talk a lot of trash. I like to stir it up,” he laughed. “You just want to talk about the stuff you live as much as you can.”

He’ll be performing at Caroline’s on Broadway February 23-25.

Teen Mom Star Javi Marroquin Shares Apology to Ex-Wife Kailyn Lowry for Briana DeJesus Drama

Javi Marroquin is making amends with his ex-wife Kailyn Lowry, and he wants everybody to know about it.

On Saturday, the Teen Mom 2 star announced that he had apologized to Lowry for all the drama that occurred after he visited ex-girlfriend and costar Briana DeJesus in Miami.

“At the end of the day a good relationship with my sons mother will make Lincoln the happiest. I lost sight of that. This trip made me realize that and I’ve apologized to kail for my actions,” Marroquin wrote on social media Friday.

Showing that she accepted his apology, Lowry retweeted his message.

The formerly married couple co-parent their 4-year-old son Lincoln.

Although neither Marroquin nor Lowry has gone into detail about what happened during his visit with DeJesus as she underwent a series of plastic surgery procedures, he told RadarOnline, “I should’ve never went. I should’ve went to LA like I was supposed to. We broke up for a reason and yesterday reassured me that.”

Seemingly addressing the drama on social media Lowry wrote, “Everyone’s asking where the tea is at but javis been through enough so I’m not gona put him through more s—”

RELATED VIDEO: Teen Mom 2 Star Briana DeJesus Announces Split from Javi Marroquin

Marroquin’s apology comes just a week after DeJesus slammed her ex-boyfriend after he appeared on Lowry’s podcast with Lindsie Chrisley Coffee Convos and discussed their split.

Lowry, who filed for divorce from him in 2016 after almost three years of marriage, began the episode by asking Marroquin if it was true that he and DeJesus had broken up.

“As of right now it is,” he said, referring to the pair’s separation. “I don’t know what the future holds. There is a lot we have to discuss and talk about before we make any other decisions.”

But in a series of now-deleted tweets, DeJesus took aim at Lowry for seemingly attempting to cool down the tension between them and then going back on her words.

“1) Do not ever call my phone at 7am talking about we need to leave social media alone when it comes to our issues but you are the 1st one to use my name to gain listeners…2) don’t you ever text my man about me and think hes ok to bad mouth me cause thats when the line gets crossed,” DeJesus tweeted. “Don’t sit 15 feet away from me and talk s— indirectly cause I’ll approach u just like I did and do go crying in ur dressing room cause u couldn’t handle my mouth.”

“I am not the common denominator as to why y’all fail to co parent so don’t ever use my name in that matter again… and you are right, I’ll never say sorry cause I am not the one who started all this mess… you use ur kids as pawns and that is not my fault but ur own selfish reasoning’s.”

DeJesus also addressed Marroquin’s comments about not being sure “what the future holds” for them.

“Don’t say u don’t know what the future holds to someone but in my msgs saying u wanna marry me,” she wrote. “I don’t do that fake — say its about the kids but in reality u only care about ur feelings and not anyone elses… including ur kids.”

The Florida native also blamed Marroquin and Lowry for beginning their feud by mentioning her in Lowry’s podcast.

“I look like the crazy one now but just remember I tried to keep it off social media… u bitches so quick to call lawyers when they can’t handle the heat that they turned on… I am not the reason as to why people can’t get along… u left ur saltiness get in the way and now looks where u are.”

She added, “Call me ratchet, trashy all you want but don’t mention my name again and there will be no issues… U NOT KIM K SO SLOW UR ROLL… AND DONT SIT HERE TRYNA PLAY MIND GAMES WHEN THE REAL REASON WHY WE ARE HERE IS BECAUSE OF UR..JAVI.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Marroquin responded on Twitter, writing, “come on, you’re better than this. I know a different bri so i’ll never turn my back on you like I promised. you don’t do fake s— but you’re on here…you have my number, we’ve always talked about everything.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Lowry also seemingly responded, tweeting, “When you block their number and get a ‘llamame conyo’ email,” along with laughing and coffin emojis. She added, “Is mercury in retrograde or.”

Marroquin addressed the tension between Lowry and DeJesus on the podcast saying he was “trying to learn from my mistakes and not repeat those mistakes moving forward. I’m not gonna mix that.”

He also said he hoped the trio could all get along if he and DeJesus did reunite.

Lowry, on the other hand, thought differently: “It would never happen. We would never get along. You allowed her to disrespect me to my face, also on camera, also in text messages.”

She continued, “When I said what I had to say in a nice way, you defended her and not me. We raise a son together, you don’t raise a son with her.”

Jack Antonoff Shares Insight Into the Making of Taylor Swift’s ‘New Year’s Day’

Out of all the producers Taylor Swift teamed up with for her new album Reputation, one was the indie-pop favorite collaborator Jack Antonoff.

While Antonoff fronts his own band, Bleachers, he also is busy in the studio working with artists like Lorde and St. Vincent to bring their latest albums to life, too.

After Swift performed one of her Antonoff-co-written songs on Monday night’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to an emotional reception, the producer took to Twitter to share a little bit of the back story of the piano-driven ballad “New Year’s Day.”

“Taylor doing New Year’s Day on Fallon was beautiful,” Antonoff wrote. “That song means a lot to me. Happened so quickly at my apartment. We texted the next morning to make sure it wasn’t a dream.”

It’s the only ballad and the final track on the much-hyped album, detailing the decaying glitter of the day after a big party — and the tender nostalgia of everyday, through-thick-and-thin love. With specific references that paint a vivid, recognizable picture — “Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby / Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor” — it might also be one of her most relatable tracks on Reputation.

Pastor Otis Moss III Shares 3 Ways to Get Involved in the Green Revolution

moss

Chicago’s South Side gets more media coverage for its gun violence than for its gardens, but Trinity United Church of Christ is telling a different story. Trinity, a massive 8,500 member, five-generation, predominantly African-American church led by a visionary pastor, has joined the green church revolution in the heart of the South Side.

Their witness is a timely one. As the perils of climate change come to an ever-more furious boil, how the church responds is as much a matter of leadership as it is morality. Leadership, because it takes a mammoth effort to mobilize such a large community toward anything, and morality because the stakes are dangerously high.

Enter Rev. Dr. Otis Moss, III, the pastor of Trinity. Rev. Moss has helped lead the rising tide of Black churches speaking out for the environment. Under Moss’ leadership, Trinity has planted the George Washington Carver community vegetable garden (which teaches young people about gardening and science), started a Black farmer’s market in a food desert, swapped out toxic cleaning chemicals for non-toxic ones, and mobilized millions of dollars to build a green roof (a roof covered in vegetation that absorbs rainfall and regulates temperature and accommodates solar power).

Our planet is groaning for prophetic churches that can live resurrection truth in the midst of a warming climate. It’s why I was particularly eager to speak to Rev. Moss. Most of us may not be part of a church with thousands of people, but we do live on the same planet, and so we must all act.

I hoped to find out how we might be a part of this moral call to lift up our communities with an environmental response. Here are three key insights that came from my conversation with Pastor Moss to get the rest of us started:

Start with understanding your own experience.

Embedded in each person’s story are all of the elements needed to develop a care for the earth. It’s just a matter, as Jesus said, to have the “eyes to see.” Spend time outside? Care about health? Want global stability (or security) and peace? Want to fight racism? Eat food? All of these can be trail markers to discover a care for the earth, even if the term “environmentalist” is too loaded.

For Moss, his family’s experience in the rural South made the cause personal.

“The kernel for all of this [greening the church] really came from my childhood and witnessing my parents speak about their experience of the South, growing up, witnessing my mother and father being very conscious about food and food justice,” he said. “Then I went to Morehouse College, and I was part of a community of men and women who were very concerned about these issues.”

This concern wasn’t just for distant polar bears; this was for his community, for his family (indeed, Moss’ wife is a food justice advocate and has played a tremendous role in this effort), and for the future of Trinity. He leads not from the “concept” of good environmental ideas; rather, these efforts are a matter of personal identity and fundamental values.

Expect push back.

Moss stepped into a long lineage of beloved leadership at Trinity, and he pushed for greening the church while he was (relative to Trinity’s 56-year history) the new kid on the block. Launching this initiative was not easy.

“I received very typical church push back. I was the new pastor with the new idea, so people said, ‘We don’t know you, therefore if you make a suggestion we push back.’”

The first step was making sure that everyone was talking about the same thing. “Environmentalist,” “green,” and “sustainability” all are loaded words, and they resonated differently with Trinity’s elder members in particular.

“When I made the announcement to renovate Trinity’s roof to be a green roof, I went to the barber to hear what people were saying, because barbers hear a lot from the community,” Moss said. “He told me that one of the older members said, ‘That new young pastor wants to put green on top of the church!’”

To clarify vocabulary, Moss created small groups—especially with the seniors. Once he could sit down with ten people at a time to share the vision, the community came alive. Suddenly, elders were telling stories of their mother’s herbal remedy, or grandparents growing organic food on the land before “organic” was even a concept. The seniors—some of whom were previously opponents of the project—became evangelists for a green church.

From there, it was a matter of bringing in as many trusted voices to speak to as many groups of people that were in the church: inviting a local actress to speak to the youth; bringing in a medical professional to convince the congregation. Moss is a prolific preacher, but he counteracted resistance to this project not by speaking more, but by listening and bringing in a chorus of voices to do the “preaching” for him.

Talk about Jesus and be the church. 

While plenty of secular non-profits plant gardens and green roofs, the church uniquely offers to the healing of the planet a narrative (and power) of the Gospel and the tenacity of Gospel-people.

“The church has a unique location of being a village,” said Moss. “I know of no other institution that has the ability to bless a baby, care for an elder, fund a scholarship for a teenager, work with a couple on the verge of divorce, organize a neighborhood after a shooting, visit people in jail, advocate against mass incarceration, have a farmers market, employ people who come out of prison, and help people understand how all of that is related to what [theologian Paul] Tillich calls ’the ultimate concern,’ the love of Christ.”

Grounded in the liberating love of Jesus, the church can move powerfully into environmental spaces offering a completely unique witness.

Each of our communities faces an overburdened Creation. We have a difficult road ahead. Despite all of this weight, Moss’ last words of advice ring true for anyone getting desiring to defend God’s Creation: “I would suggest that whatever you start, do it with a deep sense of prayer and with laughter.”

About the Author:

Tyler Sit is pastor of New City Church, a community based in South Minneapolis that focuses on environmental justice. Both Moss and Sit are Fellows at the Forum for Theological Exploration (FTE).

With Amazon shares soaring, Jeff Bezos is now the world’s richest man

Jeff Bezos Wealth

Amazon yesterday released its third-quarter earnings results and completely blew away even the most optimistic of analyst expectations. When the dust settled, Amazon posted revenue of $ 43.7 billion, a cool $ 1 billion more than the $ 42.1 billion analysts on Wall St. expecting. Profit wise, Amazon continued to demonstrate that it can generate a profit, however small. For the quarter gone by, Amazon posted earnings per share of 52 cents, a solid figure relative to EPS expectations of 3 cents. All told, Amazon posted $ 256 million in profits.

In the wake of Amazon’s earnings report, shares of the company began climbing in after-hours trading. When trading opened up on Friday morning, the upward trajectory continued. By mid-afternoon, shares of Amazon were up 127 points, with the stock breaking the $ 1,1000 threshold for the first time. And with shares of Amazon going through the roof, CEO Jeff Bezos has since become the wealthiest person on the planet.

112-Year-Old Woman Celebrates Birthday with a Beer — and Shares Her Secret to Longevity

To celebrate a rare milestone, one supercentenarian who still knows how to party made sure she had one of her favorite things to mark the occasion: beer.

The Sunday before her 112th birthday on October 18, Lucy Trecasse—the eighth oldest living person in the United States—celebrated with friends and family at Lund Care Center in Cabot, Pennsylvania. Trecasse spends much of her time at the center knitting, sewing or playing bingo (her favorite). Yet, every so often, she’ll open a bottle of beer, just as she did for her birthday, sharing a glass with a friend. She has long been a fan of the adult beverage—her family even brewed beer to sell to friends during Prohibition—and when asked exactly how long she has liked it, Trecasse beams with excitement.

“All my life! 112!” Trecasse tells PEOPLE. “My dad gave me a taste of beer when I was a kid, he just gave me a taste and I liked it.”

Treccase was born in Foxburg, Pennsylvania, in 1905, the year Albert Einstein introduced his Theory of Relativity, Theodore Roosevelt was inaugurated as the 26th president of the United States and the life expectancy for a woman was just 50 years old.

“There were no automobiles then. We had nothing, just a horse and wagon,” Trecasse remembers. “People came around at 4:00 and lit the lanterns on the street corners. Lamps were all we had to see by and do our homework, no electricity. It was difficult, but I survived!”

Her family was one of the first households in her area to purchase a radio, which they used listened to the nation’s first commercial radio station, KDKA. Treccase still listens to the station and their host, Marty Griffin, almost every morning.

Trecasse graduated at the top of her class at Butler High and worked as a secretary at Standard Steel Car Co., according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, becoming one of the only people from her class to land a job out of high school (something she remains proud of to this day).

She married her husband, Joseph Treccase—a doctor and World War I veteran who had an office in Pennsylvania—in 1928. She still remembers the night she was at a friend’s party and Joseph was apprehensive to approach her.

“He asked my girlfriend how old I was—he thought I wasn’t old enough to party! He finally got up nerve enough to ask me to a date,” Trecasse says. “He said he was off on Wednesday afternoon and that he was free to take me on a ride in the country. I think he had an automobile, one of the few.”

Joseph later served in World War II, and the couple was married for 52 years until his death in 1980.

At 112, Trecasse—who also seems to love to color pink just as much as she loves beer—still has some tricks up her sleeve, like reciting the alphabet backward in a matter of seconds (and she does it right on cue over the phone).

“I started when I was 4 years old, my dad made me and my brother say it backward,” she recalls. “He was our teacher. He made us learn it backward and forwards.”

Having lived so long, Trecasse has been asked many times about her secret to a long life. When it comes to that, she has two key suggestions.

“Don’t smoke!” she says. “I did not smoke, we drank milk!”

Early in his career, Johnson appeared The Mummy Returns, which was a huge success, and then starred in the spin-off movie The Scorpion King, which was a more modest success. By the time he made his first appearance as Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs, first in Fast Five (2011), he was an established star who gave the Fast and Furious…

Chance the Rapper’s Intern Shares Tips and New Business Venture

chance

Since responding to Chance the Rapper’s tweet looking for an intern with a package that would impress even a Grammy-winning hiring manager, Negele “Hospey” Hospedales’ life has never been the same.


Not only did Hospey score an internship with the Chicago-based superstar, he gained an experience that he will never forget and that inspired him to build his own company.

In March, Chance tweeted what fans, including Hospey, thought was an unbelievable opportunity. “I didn’t take it too seriously at first, to be honest,” Hospey said. “Then, as soon as [Chance] tweeted out the link that said ‘this is the email you can send your applications and your decks to,’ then I was like ‘OK, he’s serious. I think I need to apply.’

Hospey immediately got to work. In less than five hours, he put together a website that included a creative cover letter, writing and design samples, his blog, and more.

The application went viral; Chance himself replied to his tweet and sent him an email. Three weeks later with a text from his new boss, his once-in-a-lifetime internship opportunity began. After his internship was completed, he decided to launch “Made By Hospey” and is looking to connect with creatives, artists, models and more that are looking to communicate their brand.

Black Enterprise had the opportunity to catch up with Hospey and hear his advice on how others can gain an internship and his new business endeavors.

When you saw Chance’s tweet, how did you come up with the idea to make a website?

I have a background in blogging and writing and I built my own WordPress blog in the past, so I figured that would be a great way to do this stuff. I knew a lot of people would be submitting pitch decks but I want to make this a little bit more exciting. 

I had the day off and I spent 4-5 hours building the website and filling in all the content. It was great because I was able to get it out the same exact day and get a little traffic behind it while some people were still conceptualizing. I think time management was a big factor.

 

It is one thing to get an internship, but another to keep it. Once you were on board, how were you able to sustain your role?

I came in prepared to work as hard as I could and do whatever I needed to do to help the team. I feel like the hardest part was adjusting to tour life; moving to a new city every two to three days, being able to work from an arena, etc. I eventually got comfortable with the people I was around and the space that I was in, knowing sometimes you do have to adjust to get certain things done. Seeing how others worked around me is something I took into consideration as well.

 

What made you want to start ‘Made By Hospey’ after the internship was over?

Being on the road with Chance especially, I looked at someone like him that has really elevated from just ‘the art’ to being a person (and brand) that people can relate to. I think that’s been a big part of his growth lately. I’m interested in is how people communicate themselves and how they can create sustainable brands that people can relate to.

I think there’s a stigma around the word ‘brand’ where you automatically think of big box brands and that type of stuff but personal branding is important. Young people and black creatives have been driving culture for such a long time that I think it’s finally time to start knowing our own value and creating our own value. Instead of always going and being the one who’s hired to work for a company to help them get shine, some people want to build their own personal brand, so that’s what I’m focusing on. I am helping people build their brand and obviously thinking about the metrics but more so how they’re communicating themselves.

What are three tips you would suggest for people aiming to score a highly sought after internship?

Be Unique

The key is to be unique. Be creative and show your personality because there are lots of skills lots of people can do at the end of the day, so your skill level may not be enough to set you apart. People look for personalities that will mesh with them, that will add something to the team, that will add another layer of dynamism.

Do the Unexpected

I definitely say being able to show that you can think outside of the box, that you can work fast, that you can bring something new to the table that they may not be expecting is crucial. If they’re expecting one thing and you’re able to deliver another thing, I think that’s a big part of how you will stand out.

Know that Anything is Possible

“Know that anything that you want is possible if you try for it. I always talk about this thing that I call ‘Dreamers Math.’ It says, everything only has two possibilities; either it will happen or it won’t happen. By my math that’s 50%. So anything you want, even if it’s the craziest thing possible, it either will happen or it won’t happen.

You’re already starting with a 50% chance that it’s going to happen and every skill that you teach yourself, every new connection you make, every piece of content you put out there all that’s doing is bettering your 50%.

I like to look at things that way. The harder I work, the closer I’ll get to that goal until 50% chance becomes a 60% and 75% and then all of a sudden, your craziest goals are attainable.

People get too caught up on stuff they don’t think are going to be realistic but at the end of the day, the craziest things can happen.

DWTS’ Victoria Arlen Shares Emotional Video About Re-Learning to Talk & Walk After 4 Years in a Vegetative State

 

Victoria Arlen is an ESPN personality and Paralympian swimmer and  who, at age 11, was diagnosed with a neurological condition and an autoimmune disease, which affected her spinal cord and left her in a vegetative state for four years. Arlen slowly regained the ability to speak, eat, walk, and move and now is competing on season 25 of Dancing with the Stars — and is blogging about her experience on the ABC reality show exclusively for PEOPLE. Follow Arlen, 22, and her partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy, 31, on Twitter!

When I was 10 years old, Dancing with the Stars premiered, and I told my mom, “I’m going to be on that show one day.” We, of course, had no idea that just a year later ,even surviving would seem almost impossible.

When I was sick, my parents would remember that dream and put DWTS on the TV so I could watch it. It was always a motivating factor to start my recovery but I never imagined I would actually do it.

WATCH: Interviews With Pros, Judges, Creators & More — Get Your Dancing with the Stars Fix!

When the opportunity came about to do the show, I thought about little Victoria and all the things that I’ve overcome, and I just thought this would be a really cool opportunity to show people that anything is possible.

I grew up doing tap, jazz and ballet, so I understand rhythm and movement and performing. But I’ve been out of the commission in the dancing realm for 11 years now, and learning to walk again was an incredible challenge, so I didn’t know how I would take to dancing again.

You know that feeling when your leg falls asleep and you can’t really feel it or move it? Well, that’s what my legs feel like all the time, so being fluid and graceful has been difficult. But rehearsals are going great. Val and I are having a lot of fun together. He’s an incredible dancer and teacher and friend, and he’s really helped me find my footing.

Still, it’s been a really intense and challenging experience so far. It’s been a reality check that my muscles are still really affected by my spinal cord injury, but it’s also been super empowering to see how much I’m capable of.

And there are some days I feel grateful that I can’t feel my legs, because those shoes are tearing up my feet. My arms are sore at the end of every day, but I’m lucky because I came into this very strong. I work out two to three hours a day, and being a professional athlete has helped with my endurance. My swimmer man-shoulders help.

PEOPLE’s special issue, 25 Seasons of Dancing with the Stars, is available now

With everything going on in my life, I’m really health-conscious, but dancing for hours each day has been a challenge. Well, challenge is an understatement. This is literally the hardest thing I’ve ever embarked on — and I’ve embarked on really challenging things! But it’s like climbing a mountain, you don’t stop halfway through and say, “Man, this is hard.” You just keep climbing and accept any challenge that comes along until you get to the top and get to enjoy the incredible view.

Going into tonight’s premiere, I’m nervous. But every cool thing I’ve done, I’ve been nervous, so that’s a good thing. I’m going to channel that into great energy when I get out there. It’s surreal for me to be here and emotional in this beautiful way. I hope I prove to myself and to everyone watching that anyone can accomplish anything.
