Nick Cannon And Bernice Burgos Photographed Together In Matching Outfits – Are They Dating?

Bernice Burgos and Nick Cannon were photographed by the paparazzi going out to dinner together, and now people are wondering if T.I.’s alleged ex side-chick and Mariah Carey’s former husband are dating. The woman was the one to address the rumors, and it’s apparently not what you think.

According to her, their meeting at Nobu in Malibu was not for fun but for business.

At least that is what she said in the comment section of The Shade Room account, which shared the pics.

That being said, Bernice did not go into any detail as to what kind of project they are collabing on.

Nick is yet to talk about the rumors.

However, it totally makes sense that so many fans just assumed there is a romance going on between the two considering that the hotspot where they met is a very popular place for celebrities to go on dates.

While there was no PDA between them, Bernice and Nick did, coincidentally or not, wear pretty much the same thing – yellow T-shirts and jeans.

Meanwhile, other reports previously stated that Bernice is still hung up on T.I. and seeing him and Tiny making it work really broke her heart.

HollywoodLife reported via an insider that ‘When Bernice saw online  he was dancing and kissing Tiny this past weekend, it really stung.’

Another source told the outlet about Nick’s own love life as well, claiming that Mariah Carrey’s weight loss and increased confidence are changes he has noticed.

‘Now that she has her groove back, Nick is missing her like never before and thinks she is a total MILF.’

Big Brother’s Swaggy C, Bayleigh Plan to Move in Together

Big Brother’s Swaggy C and Bayleigh Dayton will soon be roommates once more. The couple — who began a showmance on the CBS show — also plan to live under the same roof in real-life.

“It’s crazy but we talked about moving in with each other after the show ends,” the day trader exclusively tells Us Weekly. “When you confide in someone and can put 100 percent trust in them it grows fast. You see them at their worst, you sleep with them every night, you see them at their best.”

Swaggy C (real name: Chris Williams) says that the pair had a four-hour conversation about their future the night before he was evicted. His backdoor was orchestrated by Head of Household Kaitlyn Herman and he lost to Winston Hines by a 8-4 vote.

It didn’t take long for Swaggy C, 23, and Bayleigh, 25, to align. In fact, the Bridgeport, Connecticut, native says they’ve used the “boyfriend and girlfriend” labels since day 10 in the house.

“It’s her personality,” he tells Us on what he loves most about the Atlanta-based flight attendant. “How much she actually cares for me, aside from the game, in terms of me bettering myself. She’s genuinely concerned about that and not so much her physical attraction, so that’s the main thing that attracted me to her.”

It’s way too early to discuss marriage, though. He adds: “That is obviously way far down the road.”

For more, read the rest of his Q&A below:

BIG BROTHER
BIG BROTHER Sonja FlemmingCBS

Us Weekly: What was going on in your head when Tyler Crispen used the Power of Veto on Scottie Salton?

Swaggy C: I’m looking at Fessy [Shafaat] and I see him pissed off and I’m looking across from me and I see Rockstar’s [Lantry] head’s down. Looking to my right and I see Kaitlyn is crying. I knew it was going to be me for some reason. I knew it before she ever said my name.

Us: Do you wish you had said something to Kaitlyn during the ceremony?

SC: No because I knew she could have broke the tie and I felt like if I flipped out on her then at the end of the day she probably wouldn’t have broke in my favor. So that’s why you saw me playing to her emotional side and her heart. If I knew the votes were going to be 8-4 and lopsided like that, I would have flipped out on every single person in that house before I left.

Us: Do you think she has too much blood on her hands now after nominating you?

SC: It’s going to backfire on her … I always said that I was going after Brett [Robinson], Winston, Angela [Rummans], and Rachel [Swindler] if I won HOH. They could have waited until I did that and then got me out but they did it too early. Now my side doesn’t like them as opposed to playing both sides and me keeping them safe and then letting me take the heat and be the threat and they could fly under the radar. But now their game is shown.

Us: How many personalized shirts did you bring into the house?

SC: I only brought seven in the house — or eight — and I left four in the house. Threw three in the crowd. I only got one on right now. I have a lot more at home but those are the one’s I brought to the show.

Us: When did you start making them?

SC: Literally a month ago I made them because I wanted this summer for me to only wear stuff that has my name on it. And then I did that and I got the call that said I was on Big Brother so I was like, you know what, let me just bring the shirts since I’m on the show. I didn’t make the shirts for the show. People think I made it for the show to sell it. No, I literally made it for myself.

 

Host Julie Chen interviews Chris Williams

Us: Did you know far in advance you were going to throw the shirts into the crowd before speaking with Julie Chen?

SC: I actually thought of it days before. I was like, alright if I ever get evicted I’ll just throw them out in the crowd. But my speech — I didn’t think of that until an hour beforehand. … I was literally thinking about it for maybe 5-10 minutes and then ran off with it.

Us: Do you usually give yourself pep talks the way you did on the show?

SC: Not pep talks but I do talk to myself from time to time, when I analyze things. Instead of thinking in my mind I kind of say it out loud.

Us: Where does your confidence come from?

SC: I always say that whether people love me or hate me, at the end of the day when they see me, their face makes a reaction. Whether it’s a good reaction or a bad reaction I’m not going to walk into a room and you’re just going to ignore me. I thrive off of that, which is why literally my high school yearbook quote was, “Whether you hate me or love me you’ll always remember me.” I live by that every day.

Us: What are three words to describe your BB experience?

SC: Greatest summer ever. Even though it was only 23 days it’s still great to be in that house.

Season 20 of Big Brother airs on CBS on Sundays and Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET and Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET.

Here are some of the most powerful images from today’s Families Belong Together marches

Today, Saturday, June 30th, people across the nation are challenging the Trump administration’s immigration policies as part of the Families Belong Together protests. The mobilization is spurred largely by the separation of more than 2,000 immigrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. The president signed an executive order on June 20th putting an end to the family separation practice, but the immigration policy itself remains intact — meaning that from now on, families will be detained together.

What’s more, most of the families already separated have yet to be reunited.

U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) announced the Families Belong Together protests on MSNBC’s All in with Chris Hayes on June 18th. The national march took place at 11 a.m. ET at Lafayette Park in Washington, D.C. Sister marches were also planned in more than 700 cities nationwide, including Los Angeles, Detroit, New York City, Chicago, and Kansas City, Missouri.

Donate to one of these deserving organizations dedicated to immigrant rights. Contact your elected officials to tell them how you feel about the administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy. And finally, don’t forget to vote — it’s one of the most important things you can do.

Lena Dunham, Joshua Jackson & Sia Among Stars Protesting Migrant Crisis in Texas: ‘Together We Rise’

While attending a protest in Tornillo, Texas — a city along the U.S.-Mexico border — a group of celebrities came together to voice their outrage over the thousands of migrant children who have been separated from their parents after crossing the Southern U.S. border illegally.

“We came to Tornillo, Texas, to show our solidarity with the families who have been separated, the children who are alone and the parents who are grieving and the undocumented Americans who are losing more than I can fathom,” Lena Dunham wrote alongside a group shot of many famous faces, including Amber Heard, Bella Thorne, Mira Sorvino and Sia.

In the group photo, many of the celebrities are carrying signs protesting the crisis. “This is about humanity,” read one of the signs, while another proclaimed “no one is illegal.”

“Thank you, Tornillo, for showing us a warm border welcome and reminding us that together we rise,” Dunham added.

Sharing his own photo from the protest, actor Joshua Jackson wrote, “This was 10:00 am in Tornillo, Texas. We were standing outside the detention facility where hundreds of children are being held in tents. It was already near 100 F out there.”

“These are not summer camps. These are not acceptable conditions for children. This is a humanitarian crisis of our own making,” he continued, adding the hashtags “ #stopseparatingfamilies#endfamilydetention.”

Imploring her fans to donate to Voto Latino, a civic organization that helped facilitate the peaceful protest, Sia also announced that she would be matching all donations up to $ 100,000.

Westworld actress Evan Rachel Wood also participated in a separate event, the Break Bread Not Families rally, which was held in McAllen, Texas, in front of a detention center.

Since May, Trump’s “zero tolerance policy” has resulted in 2,342 children being removed from their parents who crossed the Southern border and face prosecution for illegal entry.

Amid a massive backlash, Trump signed an executive order reversing the position on Wednesday.

On Saturday, the Department of Homeland Security said the U.S. government had reunited 522 migrant children who were separated from adults, saying in a statement outlining the reunification process that the government “knows the location of all children in its custody and is working to reunite them with their families.” 

While waiting for the parents to complete their deportation hearings, children will continue to be held in custody. The families will then either be reunited before getting deported, or after the parent is released from detention and applies to be the child’s sponsor.

While Trump’s executive order said the government would maintain a “zero tolerance” policy for illegal entry into the country, a senior U.S. official told The Washington Post on Thursday that Border Patrol agents have been told to stop referring parents with children for prosecution.

The Duchess and the Queen! Meghan Markle and Queen Elizabeth Step Out Together for First Time

The Duchess and the Queen have arrived!

Meghan Markle stepped out in northwest England on Thursday morning alongside the ultimate royal companion: Queen Elizabeth herself. The monarch wore a lime green suit dress by Stewart Parvin and a matching hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan, while Meghan wore a light beige pencil dress with a cape top by Givenchy (her wedding dress designer!).

The new Duchess of Sussex, 36, and the Queen, 92, disembarked in Cheshire, some 200 miles from London, via the royal train in Runcorn after spending the night aboard. The train is a favored travel option for the Queen and other senior royals because it allows them to work and relax en route.

Not even a month since Meghan married Prince Harry on May 19, this is the first occasion the Queen has taken her new granddaughter-in-law on an official visit. The joint outing is “happening at triple speed” compared to Meghan’s predecessor, Kate Middleton, royals author Ingrid Seward previously told PEOPLE.

First on the pair’s agenda: the Mersey Gateway Bridge, where Meghan and the Queen met architects, planners and community representatives. They also watched a performance by local school children before Elizabeth formally opened the bridge.

Their next stop is the Storyhouse in nearby Chester, where they were set to meet a Syrian settlement group, watch a performance by the Fallen Angels dance company and catch a medley of songs from a current production of A Little Night Music.

Their last appointment is set to be a lunch at Chester Town Hall with locals brought together by the council.

The outing is seen as the Queen’s way of helping immerse Meghan into public royal engagements. “It is the way of the royal family—all part of the training and getting used to being in public life and under public scrutiny,” Elizabeth’s former press secretary, Charles Anson, tells PEOPLE. “Showing people the ropes is a high priority for the Queen.”

Seward, author of the recent biography of the Queen and Prince Philip, My Husband & I, adds, “The Queen knows the potential pitfalls of not giving a guiding hand. She can’t expect Meghan to know everything without being shown. I’m sure she feels Meghan needs a steadying hand in these early days.”

Meghan returned to public royal outings shortly after her secret honeymoon with Harry, when she joined in the annual celebration of the Queen’s birthday, Trooping the Colour, on June 9.

Drake Brings the Cast of ‘Degrassi’ Back Together For “I’m Upset” Visual

Building up the hype around his upcoming Scorpion album, Drake recently released a high school reunion-themed music video for “I’m Upset.” Accompanying the reveal and release date announcement for his fifth studio album, the actor-turned-rapper brought back his co-stars from Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Directed by OVO collaborator Karena Evans, the video is set in the world of Degrassi a decade after Drake/Jimmy Brooks’ graduation. Starting off with Drake waking up on the floor of the Air Canada Centre, the 6 God gets a reminder for the Class of 2007 reunion at Degrassi Community School. After rushing to the tailors to get outfitted, Drake and castmate Shane Kippel hop in a yellow LaFerrari and make their way to the gathering. The reunion starts out pretty tame at first but as the partying kicks up, things get wilder. The video ends with a fire breaking out at the reunion with attendees evacuating the school and a cut to Jay and Silent Bob delivering their signature rap.

In case you missed it, Drake officially received a co-writing credit on Kanye West‘s “Yikes” record.

Edie Campbell and Liya Kebede Come Together for Alberta Ferretti’s Fall 2018 Campaign

Alberta Ferretti likes to keep us guessing when it comes to its advertising campaigns, never settling for a tried and tested formula. The Italian fashion label brought on photographer Steven Meisel for the Spring 2017 campaign, Tim Walker for Fall 2017 and Mario Sorrenti for Spring 2018. This season, it’s David Sims capturing the brand’s Fall 2018 campaign in his London studio with Vogue Paris fashion director Aleksandra Woroniecka on styling duties (replacing Carine Roitfeld). Gone is last season’s cast too, in favor of models Edie Campbell and Liya Kebede, starring in the dark and moody series of images.

Members of our forums were quick to sound off on the campaign. “Not surprised it looks so Vogue Paris since Aleksandra Woroniecka is fashion director at VP! I guess she brings some easiness and a sense of effortless French style to the brand. I like it,” approved elle_gb.

“I love it, very Vogue Paris,” echoed GERGIN.

“Reminds me way too much of VP, but Liya’s shot looks great,” Benn98 noted.

“Don’t know why but it’s giving me Isabel Marant vibes,” pointed out 333101. “But I’m pleased Liya is part of the cast!”

Forum member vetements also saw some hints of Isabel Marant. “Alberta Ferretti to me is just another pretty clothing brand that is wearable but this campaign is shot so beautifully it actually made me took notice, guess that’s how a successful campaign should be. It also gave me Isabel Marant vibes, I think probably those knee-high boots,” he said.

Perickles also showed Liya some love, writing, “Very nice! I love Liya Kebede’s shots, they look so retro and chic at the same time. Her hair and dark eyes are very intense.”

“Love Liya’s shot,” raved LustforFashion.

Gwyneth Paltrow Reveals She And Fiance Brad Falchuk Are Yet To Move In Together And More!

The actress got candid about her romance with Brad Falchuk. Gwyneth Paltrow stopped by Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show today, and she opened up about her upcoming marriage with the TV producer. She also explained the reason why she took the decision to give marriage a second chance.

As you may already know, she and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin divorced back in 2014.

About the concept of marriage following the split, Gwyneth said: ‘I think that I’d like to give it a proper shot … for myself. I think there is something really beautiful about marriage.’

‘I think Brad’s someone who’s really intelligent, he is very emotionally intelligent. I think he is a good person to try this with. He is very self-aware. He has got a lot of emotional maturity.’

In addition, the actress also shared that she and her fiance are yet to move in together and that she is not really thinking of signing a prenup.

She mentioned Falchuk’s super successful shows, such as 9-1-1 and American Horror Story, saying she is not really so sure she is earning more than him.

When Stern asked about the way the couple manages their joint expenses, she replied: ‘Well, I think we are just going to try to do it in our own way.’

One thing is certain, however – they both agree that they do not want kids together!

Gwyneth is a mother of two – 12 year old son Moses and 14 year old daughter Apple while Falchuk has two kids as well – son Brody and daughter Isabella.

‘Neither of us want more kids. We are on the same team.’

‘It’s always tricky with kids and trying to gently blend families, and it’s hard,’ but Falchuk is apparently great with her children.

How a Living Trust and Pour-Over Will Work Together

If you’ve already created a Living Trust as part of your estate plans, your assets will be distributed according to the instructions in your trust.

But what if you forget to include property in your trust, or you didn’t have a chance to include certain things before passing away? A Pour-Over Will can help you add those missing assets.

In this post, we explore how a Living Trust and a Pour-Over Will work together and how they are valuable as part of a complete trust-based estate plan.

What is a Pour-Over Will?

A Pour-Over Will is a special type of Last Will and Testament that works together with a Living Trust.

A Pour-Over Will transfers—or pours—any missed property into your Living Trust when you pass away. Basically, having this type of Will helps you cover all your bases and prevents any applicable property from being left out of your Living Trust.

What is Estate Planning?

When you pass away, you want to make sure that your family members and children are taken care of. An estate plan is basically a series of legal documents that outline your wishes for how your property is distributed, and how your family members or children will be cared for after death.

Generally, an estate plan includes documents like a Power of Attorney, Living Will, and a Last Will and Testament, but these are just a few examples. Depending on the type of estate plan you choose, the documents you need might be slightly different.

For instance, someone with a more complicated estate like a business owner might choose to use a Living Trust as it tends to work better for passing down ownership of a business.

If you do choose a Living Trust, that doesn’t mean you can’t or shouldn’t create a Last Will, like we mentioned in our blog post about Revocable Living Trust vs. Last Will. But it does mean that you have another option for a different type of Will, and that’s the Pour-Over Will.

Should I Use a Pour-Over Will or a Last Will and Testament?

A Pour-Over Will and Last Will both set out your wishes for how any dependent family members or children will be taken care of when you pass away by allowing you to name guardians to care for them. But since the Pour-Over Will has the extra function of transferring property into your Living Trust, it might work better for you if you are already using a Living Trust in your estate plans.

What is a Living Trust?

A Living Trust allows you to determine who will receive your property when you pass away. In a Living Trust, you name a series of individuals to manage, control, and otherwise have responsibility for the trust for when you pass away.

To create a Living Trust, you must fill out a Revocable Living Trust document (revocable just means that the trust can be cancelled or amended at any time).

How does a Living Trust and Pour-Over Will Work Together?

Since a Pour-Over Will catches any property that wasn’t included in a Living Trust, it works as a back-up plan, which is great in case any property was missed or couldn’t be added to your trust before you passed away.

That extra layer of protection in your estate plans may be exactly what you are looking for to give you peace of mind that your estate is handled even in the event of an oversight or mistake.

Have you created your estate plans? Let us know in the comments!

North and South Korea Didn’t March Together at the Paralympics Because They Couldn’t Agree on a Flag

North and South Korea marched together at the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, but a dispute over the unified flag drove them apart at the opening ceremony for the Paralympics on Friday.

The two nations decided to forgo the symbol of unity because of a tiny island chain that would have amounted to little more than a dot on the flag.

The show of division came on the same day that President Donald Trump announced that he agreed to meet face-to-face with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The two leaders have shared a strained relationship prior to the agreement, involving threats over nuclear capabilities and insults.

North Korea asked that the Dokdo Islands, which Japan now claims and calls Takeshima, be included on the flag, according to BBC. The unified flag, which was seen at the Winter Olympics, showed the Korean peninsula in blue against a white background. South Korea said putting the islands on the flag would violate the International Paralympics Committee’s recommendation not to politicize sports events.

North Korean officials said they do “not accept the fact that Dokdo cannot be marked due to political issues held in Korea,” Reuters reported.

The two Korean nations agreed to “respect each other’s stance and march separately” following the flag disagreement, BBC reported.

Despite the rift, South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported that the North Koreans were cheered when they entered the arena at the Paralympics opening ceremony on Friday.

Coming Together for Cancer Care and Treatment

Breast cancer patients find hope and inspiration in many places. For some, their “rock” can be found in a higher power. For others, it’s the data that suggests a positive outcome. Most people lean on their friends, family and caregivers. For Kaiser Permanente member Noelle Gross, her inspiration also comes from the wacky TV program, “Let’s Make a Deal.”

While receiving chemotherapy for breast cancer, Noelle watched her favorite TV game show. It was a breast cancer special, and many audience members were cancer survivors.

“Some had been free of that horrible disease five years, 15 years, and all looked healthy and fabulous. I was feeling awful at the time and vowed that I would be healthy enough to go on the show one year later,” she says.

Prevention and treatment

Jump to October 2017, and Noelle has indeed appeared on “Let’s Make a Deal,” accompanied by close pals carrying signs identifying themselves as “breast friend” and “breast sister.” Her prize, a Kia Soul automobile, will be delivered in a couple of months. (She hopes it’s pink.)

Noelle says, “that cancer stuff” — a single mastectomy and chemo — is behind her. Soon, she will undergo preventive removal of her other breast, then breast reconstruction. She’s feeling stronger and more hopeful every day.

Despite the obvious fear and anxiety of facing a breast cancer diagnosis, receiving care from Kaiser Permanente has been a good experience, she says.

“They made me feel like I was their only patient. They made it convenient and easy — words that don’t typically describe cancer care — and I was confident that I had a dedicated team of specialists in my corner, all in synch with one another.”

She’s referring to the Multidisciplinary Clinic (or MDC), an option for patients newly diagnosed with breast cancer.

A patient-centered approach

Phoebe Harvey, MD, is chief of hematology and oncology and medical director of Kaiser Permanente’s cancer services. The department is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer Comprehensive Community Cancer Program. She describes the clinic this way: “MDC is very patient centered. Patients meet with a surgical oncologist, medical oncologist and radiation oncologist, one at a time, in a single appointment.”

Immediately before meeting with the patient, a tumor board discusses each patient’s case and develops a path forward. The board is comprised of a team of cancer specialists, as well as pathologists, radiologists, nurses (including nurse navigators and research nurses), specialty care physician assistants, physical therapy clinicians, speech therapy clinicians, palliative care physicians, a tumor registry clinical coordinator, and specialty care residents.

“The preparation that goes into MDC, and the knowledge of having a plan in place helps patients to overcome the shell-shock that often comes with a breast cancer diagnosis,” says Dr. Harvey. “Patients get on their way to treatment quicker.”

The Northwest Region’s Breast Cancer Task Force received a Kaiser Permanente “Bring Your Best” care delivery award in 2015 for designing the clinic. The award says, “For outstanding work to improve patient outcomes and create the best care experiences for our members and their families.”

Committed and caring

Kaiser Permanente Northwest member Kathy Allen agrees.

“I can tell that my doctors take their commitment to their patients to the next level. It’s phenomenal to be able to meet with them at one appointment, instead of piecemeal over several weeks. The experience gave me the highest level of confidence in my care team.”

Compare the Multidisciplinary Clinic to the traditional approach to breast cancer care: After diagnosis, patients typically meet with a surgeon, then with other oncology specialists over the next several weeks. That means three days of lost work for the patient, three days of child care, three co-pays, and triple the stress, fear and anxiety.

Noelle’s husband and sister (a physician assistant) sat with her. They met Dr. Harvey, Katie Deming, MD, radiation oncologist; and Chris Moran, MD, surgical oncologist, each board-certified in their area of specialty.

“They knew about my case before they entered the room and everyone was on the same page, supportive, and compassionate. The appointment gave us a world of comfort and confidence,” says Noelle. “It was something upbeat and positive in an otherwise crummy year.”

Surrounded by her team

She’s thankful her care team offered her a clinical trial that studies the impact of adding an anti-estrogen medication called Everolimus versus placebo in addition to regular anti-estrogen therapy in women with high-risk estrogen positive breast cancer. This is just one of many clinical trials Kaiser Permanente offers patients.

Noelle stays in close contact with her nurse navigator, Rhonda Wirth, who removes any barriers and prevents gaps in care. Noelle also relies on a binder full of information about her breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and reconstruction. The binder has information on genetics, physical therapy, support services, medical leave and other topics.

“The more a patient understands what is happening and why, and knows what to expect, the more empowered they feel,” explains Dr. Harvey. “Empowerment doesn’t erase fear, but it gives back a sense of control over what’s happening to them.”

Noelle’s back at work, teaching kindergarten students and thriving with her husband and two young children by cheering on the Portland Timbers. And of course watching “Let’s Make a Deal.”

Lionel Richie and Daughter Sofia Richie Make First Red Carpet Appearance Together in 3 Years

Sofia Richie had not been spotted out with famous dad Lionel Richie since she confirmed her romance with Scott Disick in September.

But on Thursday, the father-daughter pair stepped out for their first red carpet appearance together in three years at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Patron of the Artists Awards in Beverly Hills, where he received the Recording Artists Inspiration Award for his philanthropic work.

“You’re gonna kill it tonight!” Sofia, 19, told the Grammy-winning patriarch, 68, in a video shared on her Instagram Story. “So proud of you @lionelrichie .. love you,” she also captioned a selfie of the pair.

The last event Lionel and Sofia were pictured at was the Topshop Topman New York City flagship opening dinner at Grand Central Terminal in November 2014.

RELATED LINK: Watch a 14-Year-Old Sofia Richie Talk Dating with Sister Nicole 4 Years Before Linking Up with Scott Disick

The father-daughter outing comes after Sofia’s recent trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where she enjoyed a getaway with 34-year-old Disick, who has three kids Mason, 7, Penelope, 5, and Reign, 2, with ex Kourtney Kardashian.

“ thinks Scott is the worst person she could ever see and that he raised her better than that,” a source told PEOPLE in October about the American Idol judge’s reaction to his daughter’s relationship.

“He thinks she should have more respect for herself as a young woman. Lionel knows Scott’s playboy ways and he doesn’t want to see his daughter get hurt,” the source said.

Sofia and Disick were first linked as a couple when they were spotted cuddling up aboard a yacht in the south of France during the Cannes Film Festival in May. At the time, Richie — who previously dated Justin Bieber — adamantly denied anything romantic was going on, tweeting that the two were “just homies.”

Then in mid-September, a source told PEOPLE they had become “inseparable.” The pair confirmed their romance via social media later that month, packing on the PDA during a trip to Punta Mita, Mexico.

Could You Scrape Together $400 If You Had To?

women investors

The other night my husband and I were watching PBS NewsHour (yes, we still watch it, though we still miss Gwen Ifill).

Paul Solman was interviewing Elizabeth White, author of the book, Fifty-five, Unemployed, and Faking Normal. She was inspired to write about her financial difficulties after reading an article in The Atlantic by Neal Gabler, who had stunned his readers by admitting that he would have difficulty scraping together $ 400 in an emergency.

That got my husband’s and my attention. Neal Gabler? The film critic on Channel 13? That would be like Van Jones saying he was financially strapped. We just figured that people in the public eye are managing their finances—and are earning enough money to manage!

 

Not Making Ends Meet

 

Gabler’s article is pretty astonishing. He hadn’t lived a frivolous life, though he had made some choices I wouldn’t have made.

But then I’ve made pretty imprudent choices of my own. I think it’s interesting that Gabler used the figure $ 400—because that’s the exact amount I couldn’t come up with at one point in my life. I ended up borrowing the money from my sister. It took me about 15 years to pay her back.

Hopefully, you can avoid the mistakes my husband and I made—and perhaps that Gabler made. At any rate, here are some tips you may find useful.

  • Work. I know that seems obvious, but for me, it really wasn’t. Once I had my son I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom. So I quit my job at a great company that had been providing the health benefits for my husband and me. I have admired the young women here at BE who have gotten married, had children, and come back to work. They seemed to understand the fundamental need to earn income which I had somehow failed to grasp. For years, our family paid for my unwillingness to work full time outside the home. Have a dream business idea? Want to pursue the freelance life? That’s fine—just keep your day job until your business can really support you.
  • Buy a house you can affordor keep renting. My husband and I bought a home in Rockland County—giving up our tiny but lovely apartment in Park Slope, Brooklyn—and now increased our monthly outlay in shelter and commuting costs by an unconscionable percentage. Not only that, but once we purchased the house we really couldn’t afford to do anything else—no more vacations for us! Had we purchased a two-family home, things might have been different—but no, we didn’t want to live with other people.
  • Live within your means. This is basic, old-fashioned, unsexy advice—but it works. There was a time when we paid tuition to have our children in Christian schools—money we could hardly afford. I met other parents who were also struggling financially but who believed so adamantly in keeping their kids in a Christian school that they went into debt to do it. Thankfully, that wasn’t us. Our finances forced us to learn about money management, and today…

I am happy and grateful to report that my husband and I are debt-free. We have more than $ 25,000 in savings. We are still married! And we still live within our means.

Back On? Scottie and Larsa Pippen Move to Los Angeles Together, Put Divorce on Hold [Video]

Scottie and Larsa Pippen are working things out — or at least they’re trying to.

The couple has moved to Los Angeles as a family to ‘figure things out.’

via TMZ:

In fact, the two are already having couples outings in Beverly Hills — where they got his and her manicures on Monday. Doesn’t get more “together” than that.

Here’s the deal …  it’s been almost a year since Scottie filed divorce docs after 19 years of marriage. Since then, the two have been on-again, off-again in an effort to work things out. 

It seemed things were finally dunzo in April when they mutually decided to move forward with the divorce — but once again, things changed. 

The two recently moved the family from Miami to L.A. — in part due to the fact their basketball star son Scotty has transferred to Sierra Canyon, one of the top basketball programs in the country. 

Fun Fact: Kenyon Martin‘s son also hoops at S.C. and it’s also where the country’s #1 high school player, Marvin Bagley, played ball. 

We’re told both Scottie and Larsa are really trying to make things work this time around.  

Does this mean there’s still hope for La La and Carmelo Anthony?

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are still living together despite their divorce

What does this mean?

Last week our worlds were shattered when news broke that everyone’s favourite comedic couple Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have split up.

The couple have decided to divorce after eight years of marriage, announcing the heartbreaking news by sharing a statement on their social media channels.

The statement read: ‘We are really sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.’

News of their split has left many devastated, including the couple’s close friend Patti Stranger who still has hope for a reunion between the two.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Patti revealed that Chris and Anna are in fact still living together following their separation and that gives her hope that the pair may be able to solve whatever issues they’re currently having.

‘I want them to get back together. So I’m not fixing them up – I would just be the counsellor between them and go, ‘what really is the issue here?’ Patti, who is known for her matchmaking abilities, said.

‘Because she’s living in the house, so someone threw out the curveball, maybe the publicist, I don’t know who… you just don’t really say something when they’re still living in the house together.

If Pratt’s still in the house, there’s hope. If the person doesn’t leave the house, there’s a lot of hope there.’ She added.

‘That means they still love each other… It’s just they don’t want to love each other. There’s a lot of best friend factor there. They’re very close as BFFs,’ explained Patti.

Well, we hope she’s right!

Friends who swipe together, stick together: How my best friend helps me navigate online dating

Friends who swipe together, stick together: How my best friend helps me navigate online dating


Friends who swipe together, stick together: How my best friend helps me navigate online dating

I sat on our hand-me-down couch as Sarah, my roommate and best friend, sat across from me, chanting, “Do it! Do it!” repetitively — she was encouraging me to download a dating app. I had heard horror stories about dating apps, but I’d also witnessed long lasting relationships grow from them. Her positivity and excitement convinced me to press “Install,” and I waited for it to download onto my screen.

I hit the gas pedal by downloading the app, but Sarah jumped into the driver’s seat full throttle, creating my account and profile for me. Sarah had already been on the app for a while before I joined the rest of the singles in my generation, so she was extremely qualified to be my guide for this online dating journey. She began by explaining the basics: how to match with guys, where to change my settings about what I’m looking for in a match, and most importantly, what photos to pick and what my bio should say. I felt extremely grateful that my guide was also my best friend. She knew all my good characteristics, and had no problem sharing them for me.

Sarah curated my profile to perfection, picking a range of photos: travel shots, full body pictures, a close-up selfie, and — of course — a photo of the two of us. She wrote a bio that was perfectly witty, short, and sweet. The reasoning for the ‘’less is more bio,” she said, was to leave the personal questions for when I start chatting with my matches.

Her expertise, coupled with our strong friendship, meant that my profile reflected me authentically — something I know I would have been too nervous to do on my own.

The first real connection I made on the app was with a boy named Brent. He was sweet, positive, and the perfect person for me to meet as someone new to online dating. He messaged me every morning, took me out for ice cream on our first date, and complimented me often, which I started getting comfortable with. During the time I was talking to Brent, Sarah matched with a guy, too. Our two matches were extremely different, but Sarah and I bonded over the similar situation. Both relationships lasted for a short amount of time, ending for various reasons — but Sarah and I grew closer as we both navigated these connections that had started virtually.

I thought this journey would be solely about finding love on a dating app — but in reality, the experience has also strengthened my friendship with Sarah.

Among the married and coupled-up friends surrounding us, we are single. And I have found that online dating can be extremely positive in a lot of ways, and negative in many others. Sarah has been there for me every time I’ve been unmatched, every time I’ve come home from an awkward date — and she’s been there for me during the ultimate dating downer: getting dumped.

Lauren Hedenkamp, friend
Lauren Hedenkamp/HelloGiggles

During this process of going on dates, messaging guys, and swiping among hundreds of dudes, I have read countless kinds of bios — some witty and cute, others empty or boring, some just purely entertaining, some offensive:

“Looking for a friend that likes to get eaten out. Midwest raised, desert living for less than a year. Gym Regular,” “White rapper. Too busy for you. Message me if you like orange juice in your tequila and it doesn’t burn when you pee.”

I usually send these kinds of bios to Sarah and we have a good laugh, but every so often, I start feeling down. Then, I can’t help but think of that Sex and the City episode where Miranda says she fears that men who are still single at their age are bad guys, and it’s just Darwinism weeding them out. When that episode creeps into my brain and I start questioning the entire online dating world — including the bad bios and guys that won’t commit — Sarah always brings me back from my self-destructive thought process.

Now, I understand that each online connection with a new guy is helping me grow, helping me learn what I desire in a relationship — but in reality, dating isn’t glamorous.

It has been exciting, and awkward, and, often times, heart breaking. Having my best friend by my side while online dating helps me feel less crazy. The bad or awkward moments can become funny stories to share with each other. Whenever I’m sad about dating, Sarah helps me remember not to give up on love. From the funny fuckboy memes that we text each other, to pre-date pep talks, to post-breakup therapy sessions, our friendship is why I’ve survived the non-glamorous parts.

I downloaded an online dating app to find love; I am still searching for that. But what I do know is that I’m not alone. I have a good friend by my side, walking a similar journey in the world of online dating. I feel stronger knowing that she is my cheerleader, encouraging me to maintain my standards and convictions as I try to find love among all of the unsolicited dick pics sent my way.

Josh Rosen ponders Alabama’s success if SAT requirement raised, says ‘football and school don’t go together’

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen discussed the academic challenges involved with being a college football player in a wide-ranging interview with Bleacher Report, saying "football and school don’t go together" and suggesting that Alabama would not be as successful if the Crimson Tide were to raise the SAT requirement. Rosen, who has been outspoken on the issue of amateurism in college sports, told Bleacher Report that "human beings don’t belong in school with our schedules." When asked about the inherent conflict of being a college student and a football player, Rosen referred to Alabama, which won four of the past eight national championships. "Look, football and school don’t go together," Rosen said. "They just don’t. Trying to do both is like trying to do two full-time jobs. There are guys who have no business being in school, but they’re here because this is the path to the NFL. There’s no other way. "Then there’s…

Yes, ‘alpha dog’ personalities can work well together

President Trump seems to prefer hiring men with alpha-dog personalities that, more or less, mirror his own — White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, chief of staff Reince Priebus and press secretary Sean Spicer. Yet in one 10-day period, all three were gone. Politics aside, this raises the question: Can people with alpha-dog personalities work…

‘Game Of Thrones’ Kit Harrington And Rose Leslie Are Moving In Together

Real-life “Game of Thrones” couple Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are taking their relationship to the next level: They’re moving in together. 

In the new issue of “Esquire,” Harington ― aka Jon Snow ― talked about the couple’s big move and why they haven’t said much about each other since making their red-carpet debut  as a pair in April 2016. 

The British actor told the mag he keeps details of the relationship private “because it’s as much [Leslie’s] relationship as it is mine and I can’t speak for both of us. But yeah, we are very, very happy. So that’s what I’ll say about that.”

Aww. 

Harington and Leslie, both 30, were first rumored to be dating in 2012. Here they are at the Olivier Awards in London this April, looking as happy and in love as Jon and Ygritte in a cave:

As tight-lipped as Harington was about Leslie to Esquire, he did let on that a move was imminent and that he and his roommate/writing partner Dan West are going through a “conscious uncoupling.” 

“He’s going off with his girlfriend, and I’m living with my girlfriend,” Harington said.

So where is the couple moving? Apparently, the actor’s phone kept going off during the interview because he and Leslie are working with real estate agents to find a place in Manhattan. Still, they’re not set on making the Big Apple their home.

“I’m the most fickle person,” Harington said of the house hunt. “Now I’m looking for a house in the English countryside; next week it will be Florida. Never take my word on what the f-ck I’m doing!”

Add “real estate” to the list of things Jon Snow knows nothing about.

‘Bachelor’ Stars Ben Higgins And Lauren Bushnell Split After Over A Year Together

Sadly, another “Bachelor” couple has ended their engagement. 

Ben Higgins, who starred on Season 20 of the ABC franchise, has officially called it quits with his fiancée, Lauren Bushnell, according to People. The two shared a statement on their split: 

It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision to go our separate ways. We feel fortunate for the time we had together, and will remain friends with much love and respect for one another. We wish nothing but the best for each other, and ask for your support and understanding at this time.

Cue lots of tears.

Higgins and Bushnell got engaged ahead of the season premiere of “The Bachelor” Season 20 in January 2016. Although they had to keep their relationship a secret while the season played out on the air, it was pretty clear that Higgins had a special bond with Bushnell right from the beginning. She beat out runner-up ― and future Bachelorette ― JoJo Fletcher for his heart and a Neil Lane diamond ring. 

Rumors of a split have been floating around for months, but Higgins shot down any speculation with an Instagram post in February. 

In October 2016, the couple revealed they were in couples therapy, with Higgins telling People at the time, “We’re not the perfect couple. Far from it! But we are trying really hard, and we love each other a lot … ’Bachelor’ or not, our life is not easy to navigate. We have our struggles. But we won’t give up. And for every argument, we’re stronger for it.”

The pair, who debuted their own reality series, “Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?,” on Freeform in October, moved in together last April in Denver, Colorado. (Clearly, the show won’t be back for a Season 2, but at least we still have the Ferguson twins!) 

Bushnell, who’s now a lifestyle blogger, hasn’t posted a photo of Higgins in a month. The former Bachelor, however, just shared a picture of his former love last week, writing, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. -Martin Luther King Jr.” @laurenbushnell continues to spread love while some feel it is their responsibility to spread hate, she is a light in this world. Proud of my gal, @laurenbushnell got me .”

Trump’s Tie Was Held Together With Tape At The Inauguration

In December, then-president-elect Donald Trump got a lot of flack after a photographer and an unfortunate breeze revealed that he held his tie together with sticky tape.

New photos from Friday’s inauguration reveal that the tape was not a one-time sartorial decision. The billionaire once again opted for holding his tie together with tape as he was sworn in to be president of the United States.

The tape wasn’t the only issue, though. Numerous people pointed out on social media that Trump’s tie was abnormally long.

Stephen Colbert also made fun of Trump’s tie length, saying, “You can use it for all sorts of things, for hiding an erection for instance, which I will not have for four years now.”

Couple Married 63 Years Dies Hours Apart: ‘I Know They Are Together’

After 63 years of marriage, Dolores and Trent Winstead of Nashville, Tennessee just couldn’t bear to be apart. 

On Dec. 9 at around 9 p.m., Dolores, 83, died after suffering a brain aneurysm; the following afternoon at 4 p.m., Trent, 88, died after his heart had weakened from kidney failure.

“I know they are together and happy for eternity, and that is a comfort to me,” the couple’s daughter Sheryl Winstead told Today. “But I never in a million years dreamed I would walk out of the hospital without either one of them.”

The pair would have celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary in January.

When Trent was hospitalized at St. Thomas West earlier this month for kidney failure, Dolores was seemingly in good health. One day at the hospital, she appeared to have fallen asleep in a chair at Trent’s bedside after complaining of a bad headache. It wasn’t until Sheryl tried to wake her up and couldn’t that the family realized something was wrong. Nurses tried to revive Dolores but her brain activity was gone after the aneurysm, according to the Washington Post. They hooked her up to a ventilator and eventually moved her and Trent into the same room. 

For their final hours together, the couple held hands as they laid in beds side by side.

The couple has two kids, three grandkids and eight great-grandkids. Their son Eddie was the one who told Trent that Dolores had died. 

“I had to lean down next to him, and just kind of tell him, ‘Mom has passed,’” Eddie told ABC affiliate WKRN. “When that happened, it was kind of like his whole spirit just changed.”

He continued, “I told him, I said, ‘Dad, if you want to go be with Mom, that’s quite alright with Sheryl and I.’”

Losing both Trent and Dolores in such a short span of time was undoubtedly difficult for the family, but knowing the couple didn’t have to live long without one another brought them some comfort. 

“It’s like God made their travel arrangements and they went together,” Sheryl told WKRN. “It’s just really sweet.”

Watch the video above for more on their story.

Here Are Gifs Of All The Times Alicia And Kalinda Drank Together On ‘The Good Wife’

Warning: This post contains spoilers from the first six seasons of “The Good Wife,” up to and including the season 6 finale.

When the sixth season of “The Good Wife” came to a close on May 10, it marked the end of one of TV’s most powerful, complicated relationships: Kalicia. Up until this point of the marvelous show, attorney Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) and investigator Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjabi) were alternately the best of friends and the bitterest of enemies. There were runs of episodes where they almost always shown together, and much longer runs where they were never in the same room. Gossip around Hollywood chalks the latter up to a vicious but completely mysterious fight between Margulies and Panjabi, which only makes the on-screen relationship between the two characters more fascinating.

Amidst all the turmoil, there was one thing you could count on with these two: They would drink. They loved drinking, a trait they share with several other powerful female protagonists on TV dramas.

So to commemorate their glorious friendship, The Huffington Post combed through six seasons of “The Good Wife” to find all the scenes where Kalicia drank together. Here they are.

2015-05-18-1431987861-8079182-Season1Episode1AliciaDrinking.gif

The ritual began in the show’s pilot, meaning it predates even the appearance of such staple characters of the show as Eli Gold (Alan Cumming) and David Lee (Zach Grenier). That’s how integral it is to the show! In this first episode, Alicia and Kalinda work together to crack a difficult murder case involving a faked carjacking. After Alicia presents their killer evidence, and the jury goes out to deliberate, Kalinda tells her that it’s a Stern Lockhart & Gardner tradition for lawyers to take tequila shots after their first jury trial.

2015-05-18-1431987898-1029929-Season1Episode1KalindaDrinking.gif

After Alicia takes her shot, Kalinda reveals that this was a trick: no such tradition exists. For a moment, it seems like Kalinda won’t drink her tequila. But then, of course, she does. Alicia smiles.

2015-05-18-1431987934-7707923-Season1Episode11KalindaDrinking.gif

The next nine episodes feature lots of interactions between Alicia and Kalinda, but none of them involve alcohol, sadly. They don’t drink together again until the 11th episode. Even then, it’s not in a bar, but in a room in their office: they drink beer and eat kettle corn while watching TV news related to the two cases of the week.

2015-05-18-1431988039-8472490-Season1Episode14KalindaDrinking.gif

In episode 14, though, Alicia and Kalinda hit the bar again, because they have some personal matters to discuss. (Glenn Childs has asked Kalinda to testify against Alicia’s husband Peter.) This time, Kalinda orders a dark beer…

2015-05-18-1431988092-6262329-Season1Episode14AliciaDrinking.gif

…while Alicia drinks what looks like tequila again. But she sips it instead of shooting it.

2015-05-18-1431988156-9689967-Season1Episode21AliciaDrinking.gif

This drinking session apparently goes well, because they go to another bar in episode 21. Alicia drinks what appears to be a martini with olives.

2015-05-18-1431988182-9482663-Season1Episode21KalindaDrinking.gif

Kalinda gets another dark beer.

2015-05-18-1431988228-9069830-Season1Episode22BothDrinking.gif

The very next episode, the second-to-last of season 1, opens with Alicia and Cary finding out that Alicia got the one full-time position they had been competing for all season. Kalinda waits for Alicia down the hall and, knowing that Alicia will likely feel crummy for beating out Cary, insists that they go to get drinks. They start by ordering two tequila shots in a row.

2015-05-18-1431988316-6076505-Season1Episode22AliciaDrinking.gif

They keep drinking, as is evident from the plethora of glasses that accumulate on the bar top.

2015-05-18-1431988346-6286008-Season1Episode22KalindaDrinking.gif

All that tequila gets them pretty wasted. A cute, younger guy hits on them, sending them into a giggle fit. He buys them yet another round of drinks.

2015-05-18-1431988373-3979951-Season1Episode22AliciaDrinkingAgain.gif

These extra drinks send them into the truthbomb-dropping stage of drunkenness, prompting Alicia to ask Kalinda whether she’s a lesbian.

Kalinda refuses to answer, much to Alicia’s chagrin. But then a call to Alicia’s cell phone saves her. Will tells Alicia she has to go see a client, so she composes herself and goes to Colin Sweeney’s house, where she finds him handcuffed to a dead female body. Alicia maintains admirable composure, considering her inebriation. Close call!

2015-05-18-1431988410-1505446-Season2Episode6KalindaDrinking.gif

Alicia and Kalinda next drink together in the sixth episode of season two, at an office party to celebrate a huge class action settlement. While drinking champagne, Alicia notes that Kalinda doesn’t look as happy as everyone else at the firm.

2015-05-18-1431988573-2916275-Season2Episode9AliciaDrinking.gif

Just three episodes later, in “Nine Hours,” one of the best episodes of the entire series, Alicia and Kalinda work on a stressful death row case from Alicia’s apartment. At a particularly trying moment, Alicia grabs them two beers out of the fridge.

2015-05-18-1431988636-9835993-Season2Episode9BothDrinking.gif

They drink them on Alicia’s bed. Slash fic alert!

2015-05-18-1431989198-858921-Season2Episode17BothDrinking.gif

They actually only visit a bar one time in the second season, in the 17th episode. They return to their beloved tequila shots.

A couple episodes later, Alicia discovers that Kalinda had slept with Peter, one time, many years ago, before they were friends. She’s completely furious. The revelation creates a rift between her and Peter — and, more importantly, between her and Kalinda. Throughout most of season 3, they only speak when work requires them to. Some have speculated that the real-life tiff between Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi first emerged around this time, though Margulies attributed the break to natural developments in the plot.

2015-05-18-1431989242-7090087-Season3Episode22KalindaDrinking.gif

In any case, they finally drink together again in the final episode of season 3. Though it begins as a kind of “Parent Trap” situation — Cary invited them both to the same bar — they actually manage to have a bit of fun.

2015-05-18-1431989277-8133208-Season3Episode22AliciaDrinking.gif

They even take tequila shots together!

2015-05-18-1431989347-2365038-Season4Episode6KalindaDrinking.gif

This bar visit sets off something of a renaissance in their friendship. They visit bars three times in the first half of season 4. They sip red wine and whiskey in episode 6.

2015-05-18-1431989381-2828868-Season4Episode9AliciaDrinking.gif

Cary joins them for some cocktails of an indeterminate nature in episode 9.

2015-05-18-1431989741-77136-Season4Episode10AliciaDrinking.gif

And then in episode 10, they go back to tequila shots. Kalinda is uncharacteristically late to the drinks in this episode, which worries Alicia.

2015-05-18-1431989768-8150781-Season4Episode10KalindaDrinking.gif

When she shows up, a few minutes after Alicia takes her first shot, she reveals that the drama surrounding her relationship with her erratic husband is over. What exactly happened to him is unclear, though when Kalinda says there’s no chance of his ever returning, it’s hard not to suspect that she killed him. He was a jerk, though, so this is an occasion for tequila.

2015-05-18-1431989799-8829444-Season4Episode11KalindaBringsWine.gif

One of the sweetest of their drinks sessions comes in the next episode, when Alicia is staying at a remote hotel while waiting to be allowed to depose a key witness in a case. Kalinda brings her fresh clothes — and a bottle of red wine.

2015-05-18-1431989853-9096019-Season4Episode11NeitherDrinking.gif

They lie in side-by-side beds glumly, chatting about this and that while drinking glasses of red wine. It’s cute. It seems like maybe they’re on track to be best friends again.

But then — nothing. In a big way.

Alicia and Kalinda see each other briefly in the next episode, but after that, don’t share a scene for more than two seasons after this hotel tryst. There’s no on-screen blowout to explain their bizarre separation, so this is when many (starting with Buzzfeed) speculated that Panjabi and Margulies got in some terrible fight. No one in the press has ever managed to figure out what transpired; it’s one of the best-kept secrets in Hollywood.

Whatever happened, though — and something must have happened — it kept Alicia and Kalinda apart right up until the very end of season 6.

2015-05-19-1432057374-1243209-Season6Episode21TugOfWar.gif

They sort of reunite in the season’s penultimate episode, after Kalinda has fled town to avoid being killed by Lemond Bishop, when Alicia thinks back to two times they’d met before. But the flashback scenes are either filmed in such a way that the two actresses may never have even been in the same room, or are repurposed footage from season 1. Fun fact, though: although this same tug-of-war over Alicia’s phone was shown in the drunken bar night in Season 1, Episode 22, the exact moment above is shot from two different camera angles in the two episodes.

2015-05-18-1431992398-6464942-Season6Episode22KalindaOrdering.gif

In the season 6 finale, they finally reunite for real. Kalinda surprises Alicia at a bar just before she leaves town for good. She orders two tequila shots for old time’s sake.

2015-05-18-1431992366-6225483-Season6Episode22AliciaDrinking.gif

Then, though, something curious happens: Most of the shots in the scene show only one of the two actresses clearly. For that reason, many people started to speculate that they hadn’t actually filmed most of it together.

2015-05-18-1431992454-480308-Season6Episode22BothDrinking.gif

On May 15, TVLine reported, based on some anonymous inside intel, that the scene had indeed been faked. The shots that show only one face clearly were filmed with body doubles filling in for the obscured actor, while Panjabi and Margulies filmed the shots that include both characters separately, and then the footage was merged together in post-production.

2015-05-18-1431992526-68236-Season6Episode22Goodbye.gif

The fact that Panjabi and Margulies couldn’t overcome their rumored enmity even for a day of filming made the parting — likely the last time these two characters ever see each other, since Kalinda is now officially on the lam — even sadder. Kalicia is, or, was, a friendship for the ages. These drinking buddies will live in our hearts and livers forever. And we look forward to revisiting the early season heyday of their relationship many times to come.

Get Your Sh*# Together When Everything Is Falling Apart

“He who does not get fun and enjoyment out of every day… needs to reorganize his life.” ― George M. Adams


The other morning was a hilarious train wreck. I started my day with deliberate calm by getting myself completely up and in my workout clothes, applying a little makeup, and spending a good 40-minutes in meditation and prayer. It was going to be a day of flow and ease!

But then my four-year-old, Elena, threw a fit because she wanted her hair to look like Queen Elsa when she is at her coronation, not like Elsa in her ice castle. My girls started fighting about their respective hair-dos and other “important” issues from the movie Frozen, and my blood pressure started rising. To top that dramatic scene off, my little guy had then a stinky diaper to change. Suddenly the clock said 8:12 and my eldest starts school at 8:15. I started yelling, “Get your shoes on! Get in the car!” My mood was quickly shifting from a calm and peaceful to a wild and stormy.

We got in the car and my phone said it was 8:32. What the heck? There was no way it had taken over 15 minutes to get from the house to the garage. Turns out my stove clock had somehow been changed and my second-grader was late for school.

By the time I got one child to elementary school and the other to preschool across town, there wasn’t enough time to head to the gym before my meeting at 10:00 a.m. Resigned, I dropped my son off with my nanny and headed to work in my gym clothes to get myself prepped for my 10 o’ clock meeting. I hadn’t confirmed my 10 o’ clock so she didn’t know we were having it. But I had it in my calendar! Seriously?!

After a few deep breaths and restraining the desire to throw something across the room, I shed a few tears and reprimanded myself, “Why can’t I get my sh*t together?!”

I got myself a fresh cup of coffee and went to grab my mail. Much to my surprise, there was a most stunning gift from one of my clients who has become a dear friend. I had to implement my own teachings on mood shifting. I lit candles, played some beautiful soothing music, and reached out to a close friend. Then…I was feeling empowered and ready to rock my business.

Ever have a day like this? You mustn’t feel alone because we all have. For me, there’s a sense of camaraderie in knowing I’m not alone that I am so grateful for. I keep re-learning that the important thing to do in these moments of uncontrollable insanity is try everything in my power to turn the tide of frustration and regain control.

I’ve listed 6 tips for avoiding or rebounding from days like this (and always want to know what works for you!):

1) Review your calendar at night or early in the morning so you have a clear idea of what your day entails. Schedule in 20 minutes before meetings so you can deliberately focus on being prepared and in the right mindset. I like to block out five minutes for meditating and another five for catching up on notes from our last meeting.

2) Do everything in your power to make your mornings flow and start your day right. Prepare your kids clothes the night before and wake up early enough to have yourself ready before everyone else. You will start your day rocking! I like to play fun music in the kitchen to get everyone in a good mood (obviously didn’t work this morning but it usually does!)

3) Sleep! The crazy kinds of days are much more frequent when you’re exhausted. We had a few friends over for dinner last night and my kids were up a little later than usual, hence the morning meltdowns. I am more prone to meltdowns when I’m tired too. Aren’t you?

4) Lean on your friends. After my debacle this morning, I called my dear friend to vent. It felt like confession, just getting off my chest how ridiculous my morning had gone. She helped me see the situation as funny, shared a similar morning from her experiences, and we laughed together. Talk about the ultimate mood shifter! That, combined with the stunning surprise gift that arrived, made me incredibly grateful for my amazing friends and family who give me the strength to rebound after the tough moments.

5) Organize your life. Everything will flow better when our lives are organized. At work, keep your emails, files, and notes in order and under control. Research how the businesswomen you admire keep their businesses organized, and try out their tactics. I keep trying various techniques and technologies, but I’ve got a system down (another blog coming on that!). The same goes for my home. The only way I can manage my burgeoning business as a single mom is to keep every aspect of my life as orderly as possible. Do what you can, and remember that each day is a chance to start over.

6) Pull yourself together aesthetically. Sounds silly, but it’s true. The days when I look disheveled, I experience more internal chaos. The more I feel sharp and put together, the more I am able to become am effective businesswoman and powerful, happy mama. Some days it’s as simple as lipstick! Other days require a shower, hair fixing, AND lipstick.

Sometimes we just have days that are more challenging – especially when kids are involved – and we simply need to go with the flow, doing everything in our power to keep calm and in a cheerful mood.

How do you keep your life “put together” and organized? Please share your tips with me and other readers. We’re all in this together!

Kim Gordon And Arcade Fire Are In A Short Film Together, Commence Collective Squee

It’s true, the noise rock woman of your dreams and members of that Canadian indie sextet that made disco cool again are in a short film together. It is, as one might expect, deliriously creepy and gorgeous.

With equal bits Dali and Dada, the short film by Marcel Dzama, titled “Une Danse Des Bouffons (The Jester’s Dance),” premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Kim Gordon stars in it, while Arcade Fire’s Will Butler, Jeremy Gara, and Tim Kingsbury helped score the black-and-white bit of silent cinema.

When this project came along, I thought maybe [Kim Gordon would] be interested and I asked her and she surprisingly said yes. So I was very happy,” Dzama explained to The Huffington Post last September. “There was actually a scene where I was going to have Kim sing a disco song in it. We made this whole disco song that was really great, but I got shy about asking Kim to sing. So then I didn’t put that part in the film.”

Well, we’re pretty sure the men of Arcade Fire can make up for the lack of Gordon-crooned disco in their own brand of ethereal soundscapes. Check out the trailer for the Dzama masterpiece below. The music will released as a 7″ via The Believer magazine. So we can all be excited about that.

You’re Married. Now What? How to Say ‘I Do’ to a Solid Financial Future Together

“I do.”

Remember when you spoke those words at your wedding? Perhaps it was in front of family and friends. Or maybe it was just the two of you on a beach or in front of a justice of the peace.

Do you recall the tears streaming down your face as you looked into your partner’s eyes, knowing that this was the person you’d committed to spend the rest of your life with, until death you do part?

At that moment, you probably weren’t thinking about savings and checking accounts, stocks and other investments or credit scores. You were thinking, “This is the happiest day of my life.”

Well, not so fast.

While being married has put you in a state of bliss, you need to come down off of your cloud for a minute and have a conversation with your partner about finances. In fact, I’d love to help you and your partner secure a solid and happy financial future together, now and forever. Just follow these tips.

How to Say “I Do” to a Solid Financial Future Together

1. Review bank accounts, credit scores and credit card statements.

Gather your bank statements, credit scores and credit card statements and compare notes. How much money do the both of you have? What are your credit scores? What are your credit card balances? Review all of this information. And if one of you has a lower credit score than the other, it’s a good idea to create a plan to raise the credit score. How? First, stop using your credit cards! Second, double your monthly payments, if you can. It’s important that you and your partner are on the same page when it comes to finances.

2. Create a monthly budget, and stick to it.

Creating a budget is super easy. You can either grab a pen and paper or use a software program. You’ll want to include the following:

  • Rent/mortgage
  • Insurance: car, home and/or renters
  • Expenses: utilities (gas, electric and water and sewer) and phone
  • Car payment (if any)
  • Grocery
  • Child support (if any)
  • Child’s school (if any)
  • Adult education
  • Entertainment
  • Cable (or another provider)
  • Internet
  • Cell/mobile phone
  • Other

After you’ve created your budget, review it together and make necessary adjustments. See where you can cut back. If you can’t adjust the figures, make sure you stick to your monthly budget, no matter what.

3. Review investment portfolios monthly.

If you have investment portfolios, sit down with your financial advisor/manager and discuss how you can make changes to increase your investments and/or diversify. For example, if you’ve been playing it safe, you may want to look into more aggressive stocks. On the flip side, if you’ve been too aggressive, you may want to rethink your strategy and be more conservative. Your financial manager will help you choose the best investment options.

4. Compare salaries and know when to ask for a raise.

How much do you make? If you’ve been working your way up the company ladder and earn a healthy salary, congratulations! But if you’ve been working and haven’t received a raise or don’t think you’ve received a raise that is worthy of you and your work, you may want to approach your boss and ask for a raise. While this may scare you, it can be done — the right way. Do not be confrontational. Point out your contributions and market value. If your boss pushes back, gently remind him/her of your results. If the answer is “No,” either accept it or look for another job.

5. Choose a monthly amount to deposit into a separate savings account.

Now, more than ever, it is important to have an emergency fund. Why? Because you don’t know what could happen now or in the future. You or your partner could get laid off from work, permanently lose your job, need to take care of an aging parent or sick child, or experience another life-altering event. Establishing a monthly amount to be deposited into a savings account that is not to be touched is a must. You may not want to do it, but you need to do this, now.

6. Live within your means.

Your mom and dad may have told you to live within your means. Did you listen? If not, it’s time to start listening. Whenever you’re about to purchase something, ask, “Do I need or want this?” If you don’t need (fill in the blank), why do you want it? Make sure you have a good answer. If you don’t need (fill in the blank), don’t buy it. Why? Because you may have buyer’s remorse or you could find a better deal at another store or online; keep your options open.

7. Start investing.

If you don’t have an investment portfolio, you and your partner may want to hire a financial advisor. It’s never too late to invest. Here’s a tip: Go through your home and look at the products you bought. Find the company and/or brand name and conduct an online search to see if they’re on the NYSE or NASDAQ. Research, i.e. has the stock gone up or down? Ask your financial advisor about the fluidity (money flows, hardly any debt) of the companies. If the companies are solid, consider purchasing their stock. You may want to look into real estate investing. However, you must be ready and prepared to be a landlord. You may consider “fixing and flipping” homes, but this takes some skill. Plus, when you start tearing down walls, you may find problems like faulty electrical work that you didn’t anticipate. Consult a professional real estate investor before you buy an investment property. But whatever you do, start investing, now.

8. Get a side job or start a business.

Okay, so you and your partner work 40 or more hours per week and may not have time for a side job. However, you can earn extra money doing what you love. For example, do you like to bake? Consider opening an online cupcake business. You could specialize in gluten-free and vegan cupcakes or offer customers specific cupcakes, e.g. red velvet and chocolate. Maybe your partner is a fantastic artist. He/she could create paintings and sell them online. You may find that both you and your partner have a knack for running your own business. You could eventually quit your day jobs.

9. Sell your stuff.

Now that you’re married, go through all of your stuff and get rid of what you haven’t used in a year or more. Toss out anything that is worn out, but sell everything that is gently used. Why? Because you can earn extra money and deposit it into your emergency savings account; every little bit helps.

10. Keep the lines of communication open.

Most important is to keep communicating with one another. Do not shut down if your partner makes a mistake, i.e. charges a pair of $ 500 shoes. Sure, you may not be happy about it, but it’s not the end of the world. Calmly speak about the importance of creating a solid financial future together. If you need help, seek counseling from a marriage or financial counselor or both. Whatever you do, do not throw your marriage away at the first bump you have. It won’t be 100 percent perfect all of the time. And remember: Sometimes, marriage isn’t like a merry-go-round; it’s more like a roller coaster. And if you think about it, what’s more fun? A ride that goes around and around or one that’s filled with thrills and chills?

To secure a solid financial future, you and your partner need to be willing to be honest about finances and hopefully were on the same page before you got married.

If you save $ 100, a month that’s $ 1,200 a year plus some interest; multiply that by two years and that’s $ 2,400 with some interest. After a few years, you could take some of the money, invest it and triple, maybe even quadruple your investment. Your financial manager can assist you with this.

Having a solid financial future together is closer to possible than you think.
