After 7 Member Melvin Edmonds Has Passed Away

After 7 Live In Concert

Sadly, one of the founding members of R&B group After 7 has passed away.  Melvin Edmonds,  brother of Kenneth “Babyface ” Edmonds, has passed away according to reports.  His cause of death is unknown.

Edmonds was 65-years-old.

His son, Jason Edmonds, confirmed his passing via Facebook.

“I’ve been receiving and reading everyone’s messages and texts about my Dad,” he posted. “I appreciate the kind words and I’ll have something to say in return. For now, I just need time to process.”

Edmonds stopped performing with After 7 after their 1995 album Reflections and was replaced by his son, Jason. He allegedly struggled with substance abuse throughout the years,  however that’s not the reason he left the group. His brother Kevon said he simply grew weary of the music business.

“Melvin grew tired of the business,” he told I Love Old School Music. “There are no checks and balances or safety nets or protections for you in this business. He still loves to sing but it’s the extra stuff that he reached his limit with.”

He reunited with Kevon and other group member Keith Mitchell for their 2016 album Timeless. 

“Since Melvin was no longer doing this, we checked in with him to see if he was game to work on the album, the group told Billboard about Melvin rejoining the group. “Without his voice in our signature sound, it would have been cheating our fans. Melvin is on throughout the album. He definitely stepped it up in the studio and gave us his all, bringing a great balance.”

After 7 is known for their hits “Ready or Not,” “Can’t Stop” and “Kickin’ It.”

Edmonds is survived by his four children Melvin, Jason, Courtney and Chris.

Prince William Gets Vulnerable, Talks ‘Pain Like No Other’ After Diana Died

No more stiff upper lip. Prince William opened up about the grief he experienced upon losing his mother, Princess Diana.

The royal, 36, sat down with soccer pros to discuss men’s mental health for BBC’s A Royal Team Talk: Tackling Mental Health, which will air on Sunday, May 19. “I think when you are bereaved at a very young age, anytime really, but particularly at a young age — I can resonate closely to that — you feel pain like no other pain. And you know that in your life it’s going to be very difficult to come across something that is going to be an even worse pain than that,” he said. “But it also brings you so close to all those other people out there who have been bereaved.”

William shared how his vulnerability is a comfort to those who have gone through similar trials. “So you instantly, when you talk to someone else, you can almost see it in their eyes sometimes. It’s a weird thing to say, but somebody — particularly me — someone who’s desperate to talk about bereavement, you can kind of pick up on it quite quickly,” he explained. “They want to talk about it. But they want you to go first, they want you to say, ‘It’s OK,’ they want to have your permission. In that particular conversation, one-on-one it’s OK to talk about bereavement.”

The Duke of Cambridge went on to point out that British people find this difficult because they are conditioned to hide how they truly feel. “I think particularly in Britain as well, we are nervous about our emotions. We are a bit embarrassed sometimes,” he reasoned. “The British stiff upper lip thing, that’s great and we need to have that occasionally when times are really hard. There has to be a moment for that. But otherwise, we’ve got to relax a little bit and be able to talk about our emotions because we’re not robots.”

Princess Diana died in August 1997 after being involved in a car crash in Paris. William was 15 at the time of his mother’s death, while Prince Harry was 12.

Nick Viall Defends Hannah B. After Ex Corinne Slams Her As Bachelorette

Defending her honor! Nick Viall’s ex-girlfriend Corinne Olympios may not be thrilled with ABC’s choice of Hannah Brown as the next Bachelorette, but the former Bachelor has other thoughts.

Viall, 38, commented on Us Weekly’s Instagram post in which Olympios said that “anyone” would’ve been a better choice as show lead.

“Hannah is going to prove many people wrong,” he wrote on Friday, May 10.

Viall Defends Hannah B Next Bachelorette

The businessman’s former flame, 27, was candid about her thoughts on the former beauty queen, 24, while speaking to Us earlier this week. “It’s just random. Like, why?” she asked about Brown’s new lead status. “It’s, like, there’s nothing there that would have made me be like, ‘I need to see her again on TV. I need to see her find love.’ Like, she wasn’t even someone that I was like, ‘I want her to find love.’”

She insisted: “Nobody loved her. When you hear someone being the Bachelor or the Bachelorette, it’s someone you loved and felt for on the season.”

The Bachelor in Paradise alum said she would still watch Brown’s search for companionship, however. “Am I interested in it? Absolutely not. Will I watch it? Absolutely yes,” she told Us.

Other Bachelor Nation alums have also expressed their doubt that the season 23 Bachelor contestant has what it takes to carry the show.

Season 13 Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay told Us in March that though she thinks Brown is “very, very nice,” she wasn’t her “first choice” or her “favorite.”

Ben Higgins, who starred on season 20 of the Bachelor, weighed in on Brown’s new venture to Us in April. “This is a little intimidating for her,” he said. “It’s a little scary, it’s a little wild and she isn’t prepped for it. Like, I don’t think she expected to be the Bachelorette, nor did she desire to be the Bachelorette after her season. So, this is all kind of a shock. … I’m really excited for her season.”

Season 11 Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe is in also in Brown’s corner: The “Off the Vine” podcast host sounded off in March about the backlash Brown received after she was announced as the Bachelorette: “People are giving her s–t, they’re being so mean to her, [saying] ‘She smiles too much,’ she said. “I’m like, really? That’s what you’re gonna pick her apart for? Smiling too much? What a psychopath! ‘Stop smiling, you psycho!’”

She concluded, “I’m so sorry that she was chosen as the Bachelorette and you don’t like her for these reasons that don’t make any sense to me, but give her a goddamn chance.”

Season 15 of The Bachelorette will premiere on ABC on Monday, May 13, at 8 p.m. ET.

Prince Harry shares his ultimate parenting tips days after the birth of royal baby Archie

Words by Maisie Bovingdon 

Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mounbatten-Windsor, into the world earlier this week.

Just days after the Duchess of Sussex gave birth, Harry jetted to the Netherlands for an engagement at The Hague for the Invictus Games 2020.

During his visit Harry had a heart to heart with former soldier Dennis van der Stroon, who has his sights set on competing in the games, about fatherhood.

Dennis recalled his conversation with the 34-year-old royal to Hello! magazine: ‘We talked about how my wife, Mireille, is 20 weeks pregnant with our first child, a girl, and he told me how special it was that his son has just been born.

‘Above all he said he was just amazed by the miracles in the world, and how his child has made a lot of people happy.

‘But he also told me not to make too many plans and that there’s no way you can plan for when the baby arrives.’

Harry has revealed his four-year-old son is ‘very quiet’.

Dennis added: ‘He also told me he’s really happy that his son is so far very quiet.’

The pair continued to bond over fatherhood, and losing a parent.  During the heart to heart Harry admitted he doesn’t feel ‘so alone’ when he speaks to other people who have loved and lost a close one.

Dennis continued: ‘Harry said missing a mother is like missing some kind of security, how you need that as a son and it falls away when you lose your mother. He said he meets a lot of people in his work who have lost a mother, father, sister, brother or relatives and when he hears their story, as he heard my story, he said he doesn’t feel so alone.’

We can’t deal.

After Banning Sex Toy at CES, Officials Reverse Course and Hand It An Innovation Award

The owner of CES has reversed course–again–and given the maker of a sex toy one of its CES 2019 Innovation Awards.

The Os?, an adult novelty from startup Lora DiCarlo, initially won a CES Innovation Award, but later had that award rescinded and later prohibited the product from exhibiting at the show. On Wednesday, the Consumer Technology Association admitted that was the wrong move.

“CTA did not handle this award properly,” said Jean Foster, CTA’s senior vice president of marketing and communications. “This prompted some important conversations internally and with external advisors and we look forward to taking these learnings to continue to improve the show.”

DiCarlo made sure media and CES attendees knew about the controversy. While she was not allowed on the show floor, she did exhibit at a popular media event that runs in conjunction with CES, where she had large signs on display blasting the CTA for its decision.

The decision to ban Os? from the show was especially curious, since adult novelty company OhMiBod has been a regular attendee for several years (and even won a Best of CES award in the the “Digital Health and Fitness Product” category in 2016).

Trojan condoms has also shown branded sex toys in years past. And Naughty America, an adult film studio, was on the CES show floor in 2019, albeit in a private meeting room in the back of the show floor.

Following this year’s controversy, some adult-themed companies told Fortune that they had been told they would not be allowed back to CES next year. It’s unclear if the CTA’s decision to give DeCarlo back the Innovation award will result in the group re-inviting those companies. The group said it will share “related policy updates” in the months leading up to CES 2020.

Sex and CES have always been strange bedfellows. For years, CES ran at the same time as the Adult Entertainment Expo. And from the 1980s through 1998, the show had an adult software section where porn stars and adult filmmakers mingled with show-goers.

“I am thankful that the CTA has reconsidered our eligibility for this award and validated the innovation our engineering team is responsible for,” said Lora Haddock, founder and CEO of Lora DiCarlo. “The incredible support and attention we’ve received in the wake of our experience highlights the need for meaningful changes and we are hopeful that our small company can continue to contribute meaningful progress toward making CES inclusive for all.”

Country House Wins Kentucky Derby After a Stunning Disqualification

(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) — Maximum Security led the Kentucky Derby every step of the way except for the last one — into the winner’s circle.

The colt became the first winner disqualified for interference in the Derby’s 145-year history, leading to an agonizing wait and an eventual stunning reversal that made 65-1 shot Country House the winner Saturday.

Country House finished second in the slop before objections were raised, causing a 22-minute delay while three stewards repeatedly reviewed different video angles before they unanimously elevated him into the winner’s circle.

That gave Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott his first Derby victory at age 65.

“It’s bittersweet. You always want to win with a clean trip and have everybody recognize the horse as the very good horse and great athlete that he is,” Mott said. “Due to the disqualification, I think some of that is diminished.”

Jockey Flavien Prat, one of two jockeys who originated the claim of foul, also won his first Derby.

“I’m kind of speechless right now,” Prat said, letting out a long sigh.

Country House paid $ 132.40 to win — the second-highest payout in Derby history. He was the least affected horse in the chain of events on the rain-soaked track, but the biggest beneficiary.

“Looking at the tote board there’s probably a lot of people that didn’t think we could win,” Mott said, “but that’s horse racing.”

Gary West, who owns Maximum Security with his wife, Mary, indicated they may pursue an appeal.

“I think this is the most egregious disqualification in the history of horse racing,” he told The Associated Press by phone, “and not just because it’s our horse.”

The victory was worth $ 1.8 million; Maximum Security earned nothing since only the top five finishers are paid.

Country House was dismissed as a long shot with a bad post on the far outside. It was only the chestnut colt’s second win in seven career starts and his first stakes victory.

Maybe this was one for his father: Lookin At Lucky got saddled with the dreaded No. 1 post in the 2010 Derby, where he got pinned to the rail and wound up sixth. He rebounded to win the Preakness two weeks later.

The disqualification was a crushing turn of events for Maximum Security trainer Jason Servis and jockey Luis Saez, who already had begun celebrating what they thought were their first Derby victories.

Instead, previously undefeated Maximum Security was dropped to 17th of 19 horses for veering out turning for home and stacking up War of Will, Long Range Toddy and Bodexpress (also owned by the Wests), according to Barbara Borden, chief steward of the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission. Country House, in turn, was brushed by Long Range Toddy.

Sent off as the 9-2 second choice, Maximum Security was placed behind all the horses that he bothered.

“I never put anybody in danger,” Saez said. “My horse shied away from the noise of the crowd and may have ducked out a little.”

Servis backed up his jockey, saying: “He’s right. He straightened him up right away and I didn’t think it affects the outcome of the race.”

Prat claimed that Maximum Security ducked out in the final turn and forced several horses to steady, including Long Range Toddy, whose jockey, Jon Court, also lodged an objection.

“I had to stop very abruptly,” Court said.

War of Will came perilously close to clipping heels with Maximum Security, which could have caused a chain-reaction accident.

“I checked pretty hard when the seven (Maximum Security) came out as far as he did,” said Tyler Gaffalione, aboard War of Will.

Mott said War of Will and Long Range Toddy “lost all chance” to win.

“They were in position at the time to hit the board,” the trainer said. “If what happened to us was the only thing they were looking at I don’t think you would have seen a disqualification.”

Mott said the incident was caused by Maximum Security’s action and not Saez’s riding tactics.

“I don’t think Luis Saez did anything intentionally,” he said. “My heart actually aches for them a little bit. That’s the way it is. I’ve been on the other end of it, just not in the Kentucky Derby.”

The stewards reviewed race footage and interviewed the affected jockeys while keeping the crowd of 150,729 and millions more watching on television and online in suspense, clutching their betting tickets. Trainers and jockeys involved stared at the closest video screen waiting for a result.

“I know the stewards had a very, very difficult decision,” Mott said. “I’m damn glad they put our number up.”

Code of Honor was moved up to second and Tacitus — also trained by Mott — was third.

Improbable was fourth and Game Winner fifth, two of trainer Bob Baffert’s trio of entries. His other horse, Roadster, was 15th.

The last claim of foul by a jockey in the Derby was unsuccessful. John Velazquez, aboard runner-up Invisible Ink in 2001, alleged interference at the quarter pole against Monarchos and Jorge Chavez, who crossed the finish line 4¾ lengths in front. The stewards didn’t change the result.

The only other disqualification in the Derby occurred long after the race in 1968. Dancer’s Image, the first-place finisher, tested positive for a prohibited medication, and Kentucky state racing officials ordered the purse money to be redistributed. Forward Pass got the winner’s share. A subsequent court challenge upheld the stewards’ decision.

Country House wore the garland of red roses, but it’s possible the situation doesn’t end here. There could be appeals to the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission or the courts.

“We are exploring our options to appeal,” West told the AP. “If we can’t appeal to the stewards, our other options are the state racing commission. If those don’t work, we might go to legal options.”

Mott hopes it doesn’t come to that.

“That’s a nightmare. It’s a no-win situation for anybody involved,” said Mott, who spoke with Servis after the reversal. “I didn’t get a hint of that from him. He’s been around long enough, and I’m sure he watched the films well enough. He knows what happened.”

The surprising flip threw a few bettors into a frenzy, too. Some who had wagered on Country House to win immediately tossed away their tickets at the finish, only to then scramble to the ground at Churchill Downs, frantically searching for their betting slips.

Master Fencer, the first Japan-bred to run in the Derby, was sixth. War of Will was seventh, followed by Plus Que Parfait, Win Win Win, Cutting Humor, By My Standards and Vekoma.

Bodexpress finished 13th, followed by Tax, Roadster, Long Range Toddy, Maximum Security, Spinoff and Gray Magician.

So Sad: Dad Allegedly Kills 1-Month-Old Son by Punching Him in Head After Losing at Video Game

Anthony Trice, of Kentucky, has been charged with murder for fatally punching his infant son in the head in frustration after losing a video game.

His bond has been raised to $ 1,000,000 full cash.

via People:

His son was initially listed in serious condition but later succumbed to his injuries, according to LMPD.

According to an arrest slip, Anthony Trice was home alone watching the child when he was playing video games. Trice started losing the game and became frustrated, throwing the controller and the punching his son in the head.

After punching the infant, police said Trice picked him up to try to quiet him and while carrying him into the kitchen, dropped the child.

Later, Trice made his son a bottle, set him upright and left him unattended to go to the bathroom. When he came back, he noticed the baby was in distress and called 911.

The boy was taken to Norton Children’s Hospital where he later died.

The child’s grandmother set up a GoFundMe account saying the child’s name is De’Anthony Trice. The GoFundMe says that none of the family saw this coming and the they need help for funeral costs. A picture of the De’Anthony Trice shows him connected to several breathing tubes in the hospital.

Ironically, child safety advocates released a new video on Monday that they hope will save lives in situations just like this one. This video created by Prevent Child Abuse of Kentucky will be distributed to every birthing center in Kentucky, which means it has the potential of being viewed by more than 50,000 parents each year, in more than 100 hospitals. The video educates caregivers about safe sleep practices and pediatric head trauma.

“I think it’s a much bigger problem than you might realize,” Dr. Kelly Duak from Norton Children’s Child Abuse Task Force said in the video. “I saw a statistic that an infant in the state of Kentucky is 70-times more likely to die from an abusive head trauma than they are from a motor vehicle accident.”

The video shares a personal story of a mother who opened up about her son who suffered pediatric abusive head trauma at the hands of a caregiver when he was an infant.

“We want to make sure that we understand that in a blink of an eye, we have the opportunity to impact a child’s life and with prevention and awareness we can stop tragedies from happening,” Jill Seyfred from Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky said.

Our hearts are breaking. Throw that man UNDER the jail!

Maximum Security’s Owners Are Considering an Appeal After Kentucky Derby Disqualification

(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) — Maximum Security co-owner Gary West criticized race stewards’ disqualification of his horse’s Kentucky Derby victory as “egregious” and said he was pondering his next step, including a possible appeal.

“I think this is the most egregious disqualification in the history of horse racing, and not just because it’s our horse,” West told The Associated Press by phone Saturday night.

Several hours earlier, Maximum Security appeared to back up his undefeated record with a 1¾-length victory in the slop over Country House in the Kentucky Derby. The victory was overturned 22 minutes later with a stunning decision by the stewards to disqualify the 9-2 second choice because of interference.

President Donald Trump weighed in on Sunday, tweeting that the decision was “not a good one.” He wrote: “Only in these days of political correctness could such an overturn occur. The best horse did NOT win the Kentucky Derby — not even close!”

Runner-up Country House, a 65-1 long shot, was elevated to the winner’s circle Saturday to the astonishment of Maximum Security’s team, which insisted the horse did not cut off his competitors.

West said his team is exploring options to appeal, starting with the stewards. The owner said stewards told him he can see a replay of the incident on Thursday.

Kentucky Horse Racing Commission chief steward Barbara Borden said the riders of Long Range Toddy and Country House lodged objections against Maximum Security for interference.

“We had a lengthy review of the race,” Borden said. “We interviewed affected riders. We determined that (Maximum Security) drifted out and impacted the progress of War of Will, in turn interfering with the 18 and 21. Those horses were all affected by the interference.”

Maximum Security was dropped to 17th of 19 horses, placed behind all the horses it was determined that he bothered.

Borden did not take questions and exited the news briefing to shouts from reporters about a lack of transparency. West said there wasn’t much jockey Luis Saez could do to control Maximum Security on a sloppy track.

“When you’re leg weary, you’re not going to run straight all the time,” he said. “Horses don’t either.”

Said Saez, “I never put anybody in danger.”

Trainer Jason Servis agreed with the jockey in the immediate aftermath and added, “He straightened him up right away and I didn’t think it affects the outcome of the race.”

The stewards disagreed, culminating in the first Derby winner being disqualified because of interference. The last objection in the Derby was filed in 2001 by jockey John Velasquez, who claimed interference by winner Monarchos and jockey Jorge Chavez. Stewards did not sustain the objection.

This time, they did.

The controversial finish capped an eventful weekend at Churchill Downs in two of the sport’s marquee races.

Friday’s Kentucky Oaks for fillies began with a scary spill at the start by Positive Spirit that dumped rider Manny Franco. Neither the horse nor rider was injured, and both walked off the track. Serengeti Empress won the race in her first start since pulling up early in March at Fair Grounds with external bleeding.

The incidents come soon after the industry enacted a raft of medication and safety rules changes following the deaths of 23 horses over three months at California’s Santa Anita.

For Maximum Security, the disappointing reversal spoiled what appeared to be his statement performance after 4-0 start.

The son of New Year’s Day and Lil Indy by Anasheed was coming off a 3½-length victory in the Grade 1 Florida Derby on March 30 that established him as the Derby’s only unbeaten horse.

For a brief moment, Maximum Security and his team appeared to bask in victory before the long wait and the disqualification, which might not be the final step.

“If we can’t appeal to the stewards,” West said, “our other options are the state racing commission. If those don’t work, we might go to legal options. … But we have not seen what they saw.”

Stop the Madness: Man in Custody After Posing as Ride-Share Driver and Sexually Assaulting a Woman at Knifepoint

A 41-year-old man is in custody after Delaware authorities say he pretended to be a ride-share driver and sexually assaulted a woman at knifepoint.

via NYDN:

The suspect, identified as Roberto Rodriguez, picked up the woman just after 1 a.m. on Saturday as she was walking in Newark, according to authorities. The man told her he drove for a ride-share service and offered her a lift in his GMC pick-up truck, but she had not ordered the ride.

After she entered the vehicle, Rodriguez pulled over and threatened her with a knife as he ordered her to perform a sexual act with him, according to Newark cops. He then continued to drive her, but she was later able to flee the vehicle.

Cops released surveillance video of the vehicle, and said Sunday morning that Rodriguez had been apprehended. He was hit with multiple charges, including first-degree rape and possession of a deadly weapon.

Rodriguez was also charged with malicious interference with emergency communications for taking the woman’s phone to prevent her from immediately calling the police.

The defendant was ordered to be held on $ 63,000 cash bail.

Last month a woman in Maryland was also sexually assaulted by a man who pretended to be a ride-share driver, and a college student was murdered in South Carolina earlier this year after getting into a vehicle she mistakenly believed was an Uber.

Jenelle Evans, Husband Investigated by Child Protective Services After Dog Killed

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans and her husband, David Eason, are being investigated by child protection officials after he shot and killed her dog, Us Weekly can confirm.

The Blast reports that someone made a call to the Columbus County Department of Social Services in North Carolina to complain that the children in the couple’s home could be in danger.

The person reportedly told authorities that they believed the children, including the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Ensley, and the MTV star’s two sons from previous relationships, Jace, 9, and Kaiser, 4, could develop PTSD, depression or other mental health problems. Us Weekly reached out to Evans’ rep, who denies the couple are under investigation.

As previously reported, Eason, 30, admitted to shooting and killing his wife’s French bulldog, Nugget, after he claimed it had bitten Ensley.

Evans, 27, fled the house with Kaiser and her toddler after police were called (her eldest son was away on a cruise with the reality TV star’s mom, Barbara Evans).

The JE Cosmetics founder told Us exclusively on Wednesday, May 1, that she is considering divorcing Eason, whom she married in September 2017, but “nothing is finalized.”

“At this time we are dealing with this rough situation,” she told Us. “I want to focus on what’s best for me and my kids.”

Evans admitted she was “still shocked and upset” over what happened and that Maryssa, Eason’s 11-year-old daughter with ex-wife Whitney Johnson, who was at the star’s home at the time of the incident, “immediately went to her room and didn’t come out all night until the next day.”

“David and I are not on talking terms,” the 16 and Pregnant alum added. “I’m too hurt and upset at the fact he did that. It’s taking time to get over this whole situation, and it’s making me feel he’s very cruel and doesn’t have a heart on many ends.”

Caster Semenya, Defiant After Race Win, Says She Won’t Take Hormone Reducing Drugs

Caster Semenya was defiant in every way at what very well could be her last 800 meter race.

Her raised fist at the start. Her unstoppable victory. And with her reply Friday to the big question of whether she will now submit to new testosterone regulations in track and field and take hormone-reducing medication.

“Hell no,” the Olympic champion from South Africa said.

Semenya responded to her defeat in a landmark court case against track and field’s governing body two days earlier with a resounding win in a place where she’s done nothing but win the last four years — over two laps of the track.

She won the 800 meters at the opening Diamond League meeting of the season in Doha, Qatar, with a meet record of 1 minute, 54.98 seconds. It was her fourth-fastest time ever. The only person ahead of her at any time during the race was the pacemaker.

Semenya’s nearest challenger, the Olympic silver medalist Francine Niyonsaba, was nearly three seconds and about 20 meters behind her — barely in the picture. Ajee Wilson of the United States was third.

It was Semenya’s first 800 meter race this year and first since losing her case against the IAAF this week.

“Actions speak louder than words,” Semenya told the BBC. “When you are a great champion, you always deliver.”

But Semenya’s four-year dominance over two laps — Friday’s win was her 30th straight in the 800 continuing a run that started in late 2015 — may now be at an end.

Ended not by another competitor, but by new regulations set to come into effect Wednesday. They require the South African star and other female athletes with high levels of natural testosterone to medically lower them to be eligible to compete in events ranging from 400 meters to the mile.

Semenya failed to overturn those rules in her appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Now, her career appears to be at a crossroads: Does she take medication to lower her testosterone? The medication will likely inhibit her athletic performance and could blunt her dominance. Or does she switch events and run in long-distance races not affected by the regulations?

She was emphatic when she told reporters after Friday’s race that she wouldn’t take the medication.

“That’s an illegal method,” she said.

But Semenya also didn’t give a clear idea of what she would do next. She said she wouldn’t move up to the 5,000 meters and she definitely wouldn’t retire.

“God has decided my career, God will end my career,” she said in the BBC interview. “No man, or any other human, can stop me from running. How am I going to retire when I’m 28? I still feel young, energetic. I still have 10 years or more in athletics.

“It doesn’t matter how I’m going to do it. What matters is I’ll still be here. I am never going anywhere.”

Semenya’s comments may foreshadow an appeal against the CAS ruling, aimed first at allowing Semenya to defend her 800 title at the world championships, also in Doha, in September and October while not taking the hormone-suppressing drugs.

But, if she keeps her promise not to lower her testosterone, there is a chance that Friday was the last time that Semenya runs in the 800, where she is a double Olympic and a three-time world champion, and arguably the best female athlete to run the distance in 40 years.

Her career, however, seems destined to be overshadowed by the testosterone debate, which has the potential for implications far beyond her own results.

Semenya gave away little on the track to indicate it might be her last race at the distance. She raised her right fist when announcers introduced her before the race.

She was presented with a bunch of flowers and tossed them to the crowd at the end. She then gave a thumbs-up to fans, flashed a brief smile, and walked off the track.

Verizon Looking to Sell Tumblr After Destroying It By Removing Adult Content, PornHub Interested in Buying and ‘Restoring It to Its Former Glory’

Late last year, Tumblr announced that it would start banning all adult content.

Late last year was also the last time most people logged into Tumblr.

According to The Wall Street Journal, that Verizon has approached other companies in recent weeks that may be interested in buying Tumblr.

via The Verge:

On Thursday evening, Pornhub VP Corey Price claimed in a statement to BuzzFeed News that his company is “extremely interested” in buying Tumblr and “very much looking forward to one day restoring it to its former glory with NSFW content.” The company did not say whether it has actually made any legitimate offer to Verizon, however.

Price is referring to a major change implemented late last year, when Tumblr took the controversial step of banning porn on its platform. The company has been using AI to detect and automatically block images and videos that contain certain adult content. Existing posts containing porn were made private and are no longer publicly accessible. The move resulted in harsh criticism toward the company and a steep decline in web traffic, but Tumblr has given no indication that it plans to reverse its decision. Pornhub quickly sought to attract those users that Tumblr drove away.Tumblr itself was acquired by Yahoo for $ 1.1 billion in 2013 during the Marissa Mayer era as an attempt to revitalize and steer new, younger users to the sinking internet staple. But Yahoo never really knew what to do with Tumblr, and the micro-blogging site — with its millions of personal blogs and some of the weirdest, best things on the internet — did nothing to reverse Yahoo’s business fortunes.

Verizon finalized its $ 4.5 billion acquisition of Yahoo in 2017, which led to it taking ownership of Tumblr. Tumblr is currently part of Verizon Media Group (formerly Oath), the umbrella brand for digital properties that Verizon ultimately controlled after its two buyouts of AOL and Yahoo. The Journal notes that Verizon’s attempt to offload Tumblr comes as it tries to make the best of its collective media business after a $ 4.6 billion write-down last year, which was essentially an acknowledgement that both deals had been a mistake. Verizon sold one of its Yahoo assets, Flickr, to SmugMug about a year ago. Guru Gowrappan, the executive put in charge of Verizon Media Group last year, later criticized that sell-off as too time-consuming without enough reward.

But publicly, Verizon executives remain committed to the properties despite layoffs that have affected some of the sites and entertainment divisions. “I hope there is no doubt about our commitment to Verizon Media Group and how it fits into our whole strategy,” CEO Hans Vestberg said earlier this week, according to the Journal. Tumblr, it seems, is not necessarily part of that strategy. But now the question becomes whether there’s even a viable buyer for the platform in 2019 that won’t let it slowly wither away.

Listen, we’re all adults here — PornHub stepping in wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Peter Mayhew dead – Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill lead tributes to Chewbacca actor after Star Wars icon passes away

HARRISON Ford and Mark Hamill have led the tributes to Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew after he died aged 74.

The 7ft 3in actor, who played the iconic Wookiee in five Star Wars movies, passed away “with his family by his side” on Tuesday.

Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in the iconic film series, remembered his co-star as the “gentlest of giants”.

He tweeted: “A big man with an even bigger heart who never failed to make me smile and a loyal friend who I loved dearly.

“I’m grateful for the memories we shared and I’m a better man for just having known him. Thanks Pete #RIPPeterMayhew #Heartbroken.”

Harrison Ford, who portrayed Han Solo in the franchise, paid a heartbreaking tribute to his Millennium Falcon co-pilot, saying: “I loved him”.

“Peter Mayhew was a kind and gentle man, possessed of great dignity and noble character,” he said.

“These aspects of his own personality, plus his wit and grace, he brought to Chewbacca.

“We were partners in film and friends in life for over 30 years and I loved him. He invested his soul in the character and brought great pleasure to the Star Wars audience.

“Chewbacca was an important part of the success of the films we made together. He knew how important the fans of the franchise were to its continued success and he was devoted to them.

“I and millions of others will never forget Peter and what he gave us all. My thoughts are with his dear wife Angie and his children. Rest easy, my dear friend.”

Fellow co-star Billy Dee Williams, who played Lando Calrissian in Star Wars, tweeted: “Much more than Chewie to me.

“My heart hurts…I will miss you my dear friend…thanks for the great memories! #RIPPeterMayhew #StarWars.”

George Lucas, creator of Star Wars, also paid tribute.

In a statement, he said: “Peter was a wonderful man. He was the closest any human being could be to a Wookiee: big heart, gentle nature – and I learned to always let him win. He was a good friend, and I’m saddened by his passing.”

Mayhew’s family has not revealed what the cause of his death was.

He played Chewbacca in Star Wars (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Return of the Jedi (1983), Revenge Of The Sith (2005) and The Force Awakens (2005).

During filming of The Force Awakens Mayhew shared his role with Finnish actor Joonas Suotamo.

His family said: “Peter was the man behind the mask of Chewbacca in the original Star Wars triology, episode 3 of the prequels and the New Triology.

“He fought his way back from being wheelchair-bound to stand tall and portray Chewbacca once more in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“He also consulted on The Last Jedi in an attempt to teach his successor.

“He put his heart and soul into the role of Chewbacca and it showed in every frame of the films from his knock kneed running, firing his bowcaster from the hip, his bright blue eyes, down to each subtle movement of his head and mouth.

“But, to him, the Star Wars family meant so much more to him than a role in the film.”

Mayhew got the role in the original Star Wars film after creator George Lucas needed a tall actor to play hairy alien Chewbacca.

David Prowse, who was 6ft 6ins, was originally in the frame but chose instead to play Darth Vader.

Lucas discovered Mayhew, who was chosen purely for his height.

Mayhew, from Surrey, was born with Marfan syndrome – a connective tissue disease that caused his great height.

He had undergone spinal surgery last July to try and improve his mobility.

Mayhew was much loved on the Star Wars convention circuit and wrote two books “Growing Up Giant” and “My Favourite Giant”.

‘GENTLE GIANT’

A statement said: “We are so very sad to have to inform you all that Peter Mayhew who was Chewbacca in the Star Wars films passed away last night at his home in Texas.

“Peter was a real gentle giant and a very quiet, shy and beautiful person! A one-off!

“The Chewbacca role was more Peter playing himself on screen and the question of how much of Peter is Chewie and how much of Chewie is Peter will never be worked out as they really were one and the same.

“Peter loved playing Chewbacca as he could put away his shyness and become a roaring Wookiee when he needed to be.”


He used his fame to support charitable work, ultimately setting up the Peter Mayhew Foundation to support a variety of causes.

That work will continue under the leadership of his wife, Angie.

Mayhew is also survived by his three children.

A memorial service for family and friends is planned for June 29, and a memorial for fans will take place in December at EmpireConLA.

His family said: “As he grew older he continued to ‘soldier on’ as he put it and was completely in his element around fans and supporters.

“He grew great strength from the energy of his family, friends and the fans he knew and loved.”

Cardi B Keeps It Real About Changing Her Body After Baby With The Help Of Plastic Surgery

2019 Billboard Music Awards - Arrivals

Source: Daniel Torok / Getty

Cardi B isn’t ashamed to say she’s gone the mommy makeover route after having daughter, Kulture.

The 26-year-old star, who just picked up six Billboard awards at the show on Wednesday night, opened up about her post-baby body nine months after welcoming Kulture.

“I feel good, and then sometimes I feel like not, you know?” she told Entertainment Tonight. “Your skin is more stretched out.”

Despite the stretching skin, Cardi has gone to different lengths to feel good in it. When asked about the rock-hard abs she’s been flaunting these days and what she has done to get them, Cardi coyly said, “Stuff.” And while she wanted to keep some things a secret, she wasn’t afraid to share that she’d recently had work done again on her breasts.

“I just got my boobs redone,” saying she’s fully healed from the experience. “My daughter f–ked me up! She did. She sure did.”

This revelation comes after Cardi revealed in an Instagram Live video last year that she was thinking about having some liposuction and getting her breasts done over, saying, “my body’s still not where I want it to be. I still got like a lot of love handles right here. They’re not much, but I’m used to having a real tight stomach, so it’s like seeing all this extra skin and sh-t — where the f–k did you came from? I might just get a little lipo, you know what I’m saying?”

“I will get my boobs done over,” she added. “I just don’t know when I’m gonna have the time to do it because I don’t think I got a whole month or three weeks for recovery.”

Well, seems like the star made time to recover just in time to be red carpet fresh for last night’s show.

This isn’t the first time she’s been honest about having work done. Cardi has spoken about having butt injections done during her time stripping, and getting work done on her breasts in the past. Being upfront about it all has seemingly given her the confidence to flaunt her curves, often doing so on social media and on stage. If you need some examples of this, hit the flip to check out more photos of Cardi showing off her body after baby.

Why You May Feel Nauseous After Sex

I can't even sleep through this pain

Source: PeopleImages / Getty

Right after you have an incredible orgasm, the last thing you want to feel is sick. But nausea post sex is a real thing for many women. If you have experienced an upset stomach right after intercourse, it may be caused by these things, according to Women’s Health.

Deep Penetration 

Is your partner a little, ahem….long? Going deep can be pleasurable but can also literally rattle your insides.

“Deep penetration manipulates the pelvic organs—like the uterus and cervix, specifically,” Erin Carey, MD, an assistant professor and the director of University of North Carolina’s Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery division told Women’s Health. “And any manipulation of that cervix can [result in] a vagal response, which can cause nausea.”

Motion Sickness

This one is a little shocking, but you can get motion sickness from sex the same way you would from a car or a plane. The up and down motions can shake your stomach up the same way rocking on a boat disturbs your equilibrium. Take your time with your partner, it may help relieve the queasiness.

Orgasms

Orgasms causing nausea is an unexpected downside, but “the uterus contracts [during] orgasms,” Carey said of the phenomenon. Even though it’s uncomfortable, it’s not uncommon. Taking advil or ibuprofen may help.

“I recommend these patients take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, like ibuprofen, before they have intercourse and orgasms to block that response,” Carey advises.

Fibroids Or An Ovarian Cyst

Nausea could be an indicator of a deeper problem–if your sexual partner is stroking a fibroid or cyst, it may be causing ripple effect in your body.

That sick feeling may come from penetration “irritating an ovarian cyst or hitting a fibroid or hitting something that you wouldn’t expect to be there,” Carey explains.

Get in contact with your gyro to schedule and exam/ultrasound. They will give you treatment options to alleviate the symptoms.

Emotional Pain

Even though a lot of physical symptoms are caused by physical things, emotions can make you feel sick after sex too. If you are being emotionally or verbally abused, or your relationship is in a bad spot, physical intimacy may trigger feelings of fear, abandonment or isolation. Feel free to talk to your partner about what may be going on in your heart that is affecting your ability to participate in the post-coital glow.

DANI Dyer has hinted that Love Island is fake after she’s moved on since her split from Jack Fincham.
The Essex girl met Jack on the hit ITV reality show last summer and they went on to win the show – launching her lucrative career as an influencer.
Dani Dyer has hinted Love Island is fake
Dani has always insisted that her feelings for Jack were real but now she’s hinted that Love Island isn’t “real life”.
She liked a fan’s tweet this evening that read: “Can’t believe how much stick @Dani_MasDyer  is getting just cause she moved on. People acting like Love Island is real life.”
Dani Dyer reportedly hit back at trolls who accused her of ‘double standards’ after getting back with her ex
Instagram

And the aspiring actress lashed out at those who claimed she had “double standards”.

Slamming her actions, a troll brought up the time Dani burst into tears when Jack’s ex Ellie Jones arrived at Love Island’s Casa Amor villa last summer.

They tweeted: “Double standards. You cried like a baby when Jack’s ex went into the villa.

“Then, as soon as you and Jack break up, you are with your ex!”

Dani said she and ex Jack Fincham were simply in a ‘love bubble’ on the show

Trevor Noah Goes After Trump Over ‘Ridiculous’ Twitter-Follower Complaints

Comedy Central

On Wednesday, the news broke that President Donald Trump had an Oval Office meeting with Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey, wherein he proceeded to badger the bearded tech bro over his follower count.

Trump, who boasts close to 60 million Twitter followers—far short of former President Obama’s 106 million-plus—reportedly argued that he’d lost a significant number of followers due to purges targeting conservatives. But Dorsey “had to explain to the president that like other Twitter users, @realDonaldTrump periodically loses followers when the site deletes fake or bot accounts,” reported The Daily Beast.

“That’s right, my friends: the President of the United States is upset because he feels he should have more Twitter followers,” said Trevor Noah. “This is absolutely ridiculous. Like, what’s next? He’s going to complain to Instagram because his thirst traps aren’t blowing up?”

Megan Fox Posts Throwback Pic of Shia After Confirming Past Romance

Reminiscing about an old flame? Megan Fox showed her nostalgia for days gone by with her ex-boyfriend and Transformers costar, Shia LaBeouf, with a goofy throwback.

“Once upon a time 13 summers ago,” the actress, 32, captioned a photo of the Even Stevens alum, also 32, on the set of their 2007 film. LaBeouf posed with a silly look on his face as he bared his midriff and leaned against a car — similar to her character’s infamous stance from the movie.

once upon a time 13 summers ago 🧡

A post shared by Megan Fox (@meganfox) on

The Honey Boy star and Fox starred as bot-battling couple Sam Witwicky and Mikaela Banes, respectively, in the flick and its 2009 follow-up, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. LaBeouf returned for the third film, 2011’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, though Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stepped in as his new love interest. The actor departed the franchise when Mark Wahlberg took over as its leading man.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actress finally acknowledged her relationship with her costar during a November 2018 appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. “Um, I mean, I would confirm it was romantic. I love him,” she admitted. “I’ve never been really private about that. I love him.”

Fox then replied “sure” when fellow guest Tyra Banks suggested that the two engaged in a “showmance.”

LaBeouf previously teased the pair’s sparks in an interview with Details. “Look, you’re on the set for six months, with someone who’s rooting to be attracted to you, and you’re rooting to be attracted to them,” he told the magazine in 2011. “I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing.”

Both stars have moved on since parting ways. Fox married Brian Austin Green in June 2010. The couple share Noah, 6, Bodhi, 5, and Journey, 2. Us Weekly confirmed in September 2018 that LaBeouf is dating FKA twigs after filing for divorce from Mia Goth, whom he wed in October 2016.

After all, not only is America the country he’s lived in all his life, his entire family is also here! The stakes are very high!

At this time, however, the situation doesn’t look too good for him after he lost his deportation appeal.

Now, one source close to the Giudice family shares with HollywoodLife that ‘Joe Giudice is absolutely heartbroken and devastated that his appeal in his deportation case was denied. However, he plans to keep fighting.’

Real Housewives of New Jersey star and Joe’s wife, Teresa Giudice has made it very clear before that she has no intention to move their four daughters to Italy just to be with him as a family.

She believes it’s best for the girls to continue their lives in the U.S. and Joe agrees.

‘He truly believes he does not deserve to go to Italy. He will stop at nothing until he can be home again with his girls and his family. He feels like he is truly living a nightmare and has never felt more miserable. The facility at ICE is way worse than in prison in Pennsylvania. Joe wasn’t expecting it to be as bad as it was. The one thing keeping him going right now are his daughters,’ the source went on to say.

Report: Jussie Smollett Loses Role In Broadway Play After Scandal

Jussie Smollett now has some new ish to worry about and it’s all because of his alleged hate crime situation in Chicago.

Specifically, his hate crime stunt looks to be the reason he’s out as the lead in the upcoming revival of the Broadway play Take Me Out.

The play’s originally run started in February, 2003 and had 355 performances. It also won a Tony Award for Best Play.

Fast forward to the present where Smollett, who is biracial and openly gay was supposed be the lead as  Darren Lemming, a mixed-race professional baseball player at the peak of his career who decides to come out of the closet.

The stage drama sounds like it was ripped from current headlines as it looks at issues like homophobia, racism, classism and toxic masculinity in men’s sports.

Wow. Sounds like the perfect role for Smollett. Or at least it would’ve been.

The story goes that Smollett auditioned for the role back in January, just 12 hours before he allegedly staged the faux hate crime involving two Nigerian brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo.

The Chicago Police Dept. alleged that the 33-year-old actor was lying and that he staged the hoax to boost his celebrity profile.

A source tells DailyMail that Smollett had already won the role in the play.

“Everything was set to go and the producers were planning to announce that Jussie and Zachary Quinto were starring in the play last month,” said one Broadway insider.

“Everyone was so supportive after the attack and then suddenly, everything shifted.”

Another DailyMail source close to the play said the events involving Smollett left them in shock.

“Here is a kid who is on a hit television show, has made a name for himself, and gets the chance of a lifetime.”

And whether Empire is cancelled or not, it would’ve been a great transition vehicle for Smollett.

“He would have come off the sixth season of Empire and kicked off the next leg of his career with a role on Broadway. And not just that, the lead role in one of the best plays of the century in his Broadway debut.”

That source then wondered what a lot of people are thinking about the actor:

“Why on earth would someone throw that all away?”

The DailyMail did add that a source involved in the production would only say that no casting had been announced or confirmed at this time. That individual also confirmed that Smollett took part in a reading of the play in January.

There was also no response from Smollett’s crisis manager, so it’s yet to be seen if Smollett may still make his Broadway debut.

After Donations For Notre Dame, Black Churches Burned In Louisiana Receive Over $1M In Aid To Rebuild

High Angle View Of Pews By Aisle At Church

After social media called out the blatant hypocrisy over Americans throwing their support and wallets behind the rebuilding of the Notre Dame Cathedral, a spike in donations received for three historically Black churches affected by a sting of fires has dramatically increased.

The GoFundMe page which was first launched on April 10 by the Seventh District Baptist Association, has seen a total of over $ 1.3 million in contributions, nearing its $ 1.8 million goal.

“The host of this campaign is the Seventh District Baptist Association, a 149 year old non-profit religious organization,” the host organization wrote on the crowdfunding page. The association is made up of over 60 Baptist churches across Louisiana.

“We are working with the Governor of Louisiana, local leaders, elected officials, the impacted churches and their pastors, other faith organizations and the community to ensure 100% of all funds raised will be evenly distributed to the three churches affected.”

The number is a drastic change from the $ 150,000 in donations it received prior to the Notre Dame fire, and was mostly due to the efforts of Black and brown social media users who pushed for financial support. Their voices raised in unison made it obvious that there was a disconnect over the emotion displayed for Notre Dame’s Cathedral in relation to what happened on U.S. soil.

Prominent figures such as Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton and Valerie Jarrett also shared the link for the page and or made donations, prompting more people to join in the effort.

The funds will help to rebuild three historically black churches in St. Landry Parish which were burned down over the course of 10 days: St. Mary Baptist Church on March 26, Greater Union Baptist Church on April 2 and Mount Pleasant Baptist Church on April 4. Officials have arrested Holden Matthews, 21, in connection with the fires. Matthews, a white man, is also the son of the deputy sheriff, and faces arson and hate crime charges in the case.

Ryan Seacrest After Being Spotted With Ex GF: ‘I’m Available’

Ryan Seacrest is still single! The American Idol host confirmed his relationship status on Wednesday, April 17, days after sparking speculation he was back with ex-girlfriend Shayna Taylor.

While discussing on Live With Kelly and Ryan how his cohost, Kelly Ripa, met her husband, Mark Consuelos, Seacrest, 44, said he would ike to enlist the person responsible for getting them together to help him find love.

“Listen, Goutman,” the Georgia native said into the camera, addressing award-winning producer Christopher Goutman, who orchestrated the aforementioned couple’s first meeting. “Next screen test, I’m unmarried, I’m available … if you’ve got any good casting.”

Seacrest’s nod to his availability comes days after he and Taylor, 27, were spotted taking a walk together in Beverly Hills on Saturday, April 13. The former twosome — who split in February after nearly three years together — were all smiles during their stroll.

Seacrest and Taylor were first linked in March 2013, but called it quits in December 2014. They later gave their relationship another shot in 2016 before splitting in February.

“We decided that we’re going to learn a few things — I call them pursuits — but we’re gonna learn a few things that are outside of work for me, right? ‘Cause I’m working all the time,” Seacrest explained to Us Weekly of his date nights with Taylor in September 2018. “Our first attempt is tango dancing. We’ve had two lessons. I’m starting to get the point where it’s frustrating, but I’m trying keep my cool. We will, on a date night, eventually attempt to do it somewhere for fun. Right now we’re just in the practice studio.”

Prior to his relationship with Taylor, Seacrest was in a nearly two year relationship with Dancing With the Stars alum Julianne Hough whom he split from in March 2013.

Just weeks after Rep. Steve King (R-IA) appeared to publicly defend the idea of white supremacy, he received a four-figure donation from a political group run by a controversial one-time colleague, disgraced former Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO).

Akin’s leadership PAC, Takin Back America PAC, donated $ 2,000 to King’s campaign on Feb. 2, according to a newly filed financial disclosure statement. That was less than a month after King, in an interview with The New York Times, asked, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization—how did that language become offensive?”

King also got a $ 2,000 contribution from the campaign of former Rep. Lamar Smith, who retired in January, about a week before King’s interview with the Times.

Kail Wants to Quit ‘Teen Mom 2’ After Jenelle’s Mom Jokes About Killing Her

Kailyn Lowry and Jenelle Evans have been through their fair share of drama – but it all came to a head in January when Jenelle and her mother, Barbara Evans, went on Instagram Live and made a joke about killing her. While filming a video with Brittany DeJesus, Barbara joked they should “all get lit, and we’ll go kill Kail.”

The comment almost immediately went viral and Kail, 27, quickly got word. “I heard Barb wants to kill me. … Are drunk words sober thoughts?” she tweeted at the time. The incident played out during the Monday, April 15, episode of Teen Mom 2 and was extremely intense.

During the episode, Jenelle and her mom went to Atlanta for a girls’ trip to destress. Even though David Eason wasn’t thrilled about Jenelle traveling without him, she needed a break from the real world and said that she was tired of hearing Kailyn talk about her on her podcast, so off they went.

After a day of shopping, Jenelle and Barbara broke out the wine and beer and went live on Instagram. She added Briana Dejesus’ sister to her stream, too. However, it all came crashing down when producer Kristen called Barbara while the stream was still going on.

Maternal Health Week: I Gave Stillbirth At 20 Weeks After Complaining For Weeks, Did I Receive Substandard Medical Care?

Source: Priska Neely / Priska Neely

Black Maternal Health week (April 11-17), founded and led by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance.

My stomach had been hurting all day but I could not possibly be going into labor — I was only at 20 weeks. My water had broken. I had explained these stomach pains to my doctor earlier that month, earlier that week, and even earlier that day. Each time I drove to Beverly Hills for my appointment, I was told I was fine. The bleeding? Just spotting, you’re fine. The cramps? They’re normal, you’re fine. My request to have tests done? “No need, you’re fine.”

Early in my pregnancy, I had begun to wonder if I was receiving substandard medical care. Could my doctor be dismissing me because I was an unmarried, pregnant Black women on Medi-Cal? I was convinced by medical staff that most of my concerns were just typical first-time mother over-worrying. I saw all the upper class Persian women get more attention and face-time with the doctor, while I was getting an average of 10 minutes each visit but I made justifications because I trusted my doctor and his expertise. If this was where many rich women were going for care, I figured I must be in good hands.

My water had definitely broken. When my now husband and I got to the nearest hospital, which was not where I was supposed to deliver, our parents were all there. We were told the baby’s lungs had not fully developed and he would not live outside of my womb. Still, I would have to push. I had to go through the labor and the delivery.

It was not until I delivered the baby, a boy who was stillborn, that I cried. I couldn’t stop screaming the words “no” and “please”. “No” was my disbelief. “Please” was my last appeal to God to change what just happened.

My nurse, an older Black woman, held my hand and treated me with so much care and compassion. My grief would not allow me to hold the baby but she held him for me and pressed him against my chest. I just put my hand on his very small body and held it there, unable to take him into my arms. Today, I wish I would have.

The loss of our first baby was devastating. Seven months later, we found out I was pregnant once again. This time, we switched medical providers.

By month five of my second pregnancy, I was having complications. My new medical staff was checking in with me so frequently that I almost got annoyed. They immediately put me on bedrest. Everyone made me feel like my pregnancy was their priority. It was one of the most difficult periods of my life but the level of care I received gave me hope. It also confirmed for me that although I had previously gone to one of the most coveted medical providers in one of the richest neighborhoods in Los Angeles for my care, I had received racially biased and subpar care.

Despite the excellent prenatal care I was receiving this time around, I spent two months in the hospital before having my son at 27 weeks — an experience that brought me back to the discrimination of my first delivery. I was ignored. I was overlooked. My life and the life of my child were both in danger.

This time, I was told that I couldn’t possibly be having contractions because they weren’t showing up on a monitor. I was feeling such extreme pain that I thought I was dying. After my nurse ignored several of my concerns, I physically grabbed her arms and pulled her down to me and demanded that she check between my legs because the baby was coming.

Alarms went off, nurses were running and a doctor jumped onto my bed and told me she had to stick her hand inside of me to keep my son’s umbilical cord inside. A nurse told me I needed to go under so they could get my baby out immediately. I had little time to think about any of this. I had to give consent although I was unsure and under informed. In seconds, I was unconscious.

I woke up an hour later with a scream. I was in so much pain. I opened my eyes to my mother who informed me that my son was born. “Is he perfect?” I asked. “So perfect.” she responded. Only two pounds and 12 ounces, but perfect.

Today, my son is a beautiful 6 year old who is becoming bilingual, loves dancing, sports and Black people. He has dressed as both Bobby Seale and Malcolm X for Halloween, and throws up the power fist for photos without prompt.

Now, after all of this drama, would you believe I went on to have another baby? Chile…But this time, I knew what my care should look like and that I wanted a full term, safe and happy pregnancy.

My mother had a friend named Rae Jones who ran an organization called Great Beginnings for Black Babies and it was from them that I received so much support and access to resources. I joined the Black Infant Health Program, a California statewide pregnancy education program for Black women, and learned more about my pregnancy and how to advocate for myself. I learned that Black women in America are 2 to 6 times more likely to die from complications of pregnancy and more than twice as likely to lose their babies than white women. My story was just one of many.

Though I did require another surgery to maintain my latest pregnancy, my daughter was born full term with no issues. I then devoted my life to ensuring that other Black women would never have to have three tries in order to get it right. We have so much work ahead of us but there are organizations around the country, most represented in an alliance called Black Mamas Matter, who are fighting to ensure that other Black women don’t experience what I did.

Black mamas, a safe and sacred pregnancy is your birthright and your legacy. Black women were successfully delivering babies back when hospitals wouldn’t even let us in. Connect to doulas and midwives who will assist in making sure your expectations and goals are met. There is a nationwide support system ready to love on you and the life you plan to bring forth. Despite the statistics, we can have the birth experiences that we deserve.

Dame Joan Collins is ‘very shaken’ but unhurt after a fire breaks out in her apartment

OHMYGOSSIP — Dame Joan Collins is “very shaken” after a fire broke out in her apartment.
The ‘Dynasty’ star and her husband Percy Gibson are both “unhurt” after the blaze took a hold of the guest suite at their London home on Saturday (13.04.19).
A representative for the actress told People magazine: “The fire broke out yesterday. They were both in the apartment. Joan smelt some smoke and Percy went out to investigate. They discovered that the guest suite was on fire. Percy had two of those fire extinguishers in the apartment so he rushed in to start putting the fire out and Joan called for the fire brigade to come.
“Percy had kind of controlled most of the fire. They escaped the fire unhurt, but obviously shaken up and distressed from the whole thing. Percy really saved the day. He was the one who put the fire out and took control until the fire brigade arrived. The couple are doing better today [and will be going back] to see exactly what damage has been done and how they can put everything back together again.”
And taking to social media, Joan has thanked the fire brigade for putting out the blaze and the ambulance crew who “comforted” her.
She wrote on Twitter: “THANK U from the bottom of my [heart] to the marvelous @LondonFire who attended to the terrifying fire yesterday in our flat. #threealarmfire My hero Percy had already doused the flames consuming the entire wall with handheld extinguisher (#donttakethisrisk). #gratitude #firefighters … And thanks also to the @NHSEnglandLDN #nhs #emt #Ambulance crew who took care of our smoke inhalation and comforted me. And the wonderful @metpoliceuk who kept the street closed and everyone safe. #gratitude (sic)”

Bud Konheim, Nicole Miller’s Chief Executive Officer, Dies at 84 After Biking Fall

Nicole Miller’s longtime business partner Bud Konheim died Saturday, after injuries sustained from a bicycle accident in Connecticut.
Konheim, chief executive officer of Nicole Miller Inc, died at the age of 84 at Norwalk Hospital in Norwalk, Conn., Saturday. The cause of death was not immediately known, Miller said.
Services will be held Friday at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel in New York City.
Konheim and Miller have been one of the fashion industry’s longest-standing power couples, having worked together for more than 40 years. “He always said, ‘I’ve never had a bad day.’ He loved life and he loved his job.” Miller said. “He just always had this positive attitude. He just loved what he did. He loved the business.”
The irrepressible straight talker Konheim was a big picture thinker who examined the fashion industry from a mile-high perspective. Rather than talk up his own company’s success or most recent news, Konheim was more inclined to first discuss at great length why old-school retail models and other aging business practices weren’t working. Rather than bemoan the state of things, Konheim would fire off a litany of possible solutions. An early adopter of technology for a variety of elements of sales and design,

Actress cast as Princess Diana in The Crown quit modelling after being told she was ‘too big’ for designer’s clothes

THE unknown actress who won the coveted role of Princess Diana in The Crown quit modelling after being told she was too big for the catwalk.

She said: “Why did the rejection of the modelling industry get to me so much?

“I think the answer is that these rejections were based on how I looked and I had always prided myself on a healthy amount of self-confidence which I was now rapidly losing.

“The real nail in the coffin was when I finally got through to a fitting for a show and the designer handed me a pair of breeches and I couldn’t get them past my calf muscles, which are pronounced because I’m a runner.

“The designer looked surprised and embarrassed as he said, “Sorry, it’s just we’re not used to girls who exercise”, implying that the models he was expecting dieted themselves in order to fit into his clothes.

Emma celebrated landing her biggest role by getting a dog and naming him Spencer, after Diana’s maiden name

“I could have slapped him.”

Cambridge graduate Emma revealed the incident in a blog called Cambridge Girl Talk.

The actress from Sevenoaks, Kent, is one of three children and comes from a wealthy background.

Speech therapist mum Juliette and businessman dad Christopher, 65, live in a six-bedroom home worth £2.5million.

Wendy Williams Files For Divorce From Kevin Hunter After 22 Years Of Marriage!

Stop the presses!! Wendy Williams apparently has finally awaken from her nightmare marriage and filed divorce papers on Kevin Hunter.

Williams’ attorney confirmed to Page Six on Thursday that it’s OVER and that Williams is divorcing her husband of 22 years. Williams, who filed in Essex County, NJ, served Hunter with divorce papers at 6:30 a.m, according to a source, the site says.

“Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time,” the personal representative for Williams told Page Six in a statement. “Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together.”

Here’s more via Page Six.

The split comes amid renewed rumors that Hunter has been cheating on Williams, 54, with a woman named Sharina Hudson, who gave birth to a baby suspected to be Hunter’s last month.

The divorce news comes after Williams notably flaunted her lack of a wedding bandearly Thursday on her hairstylist’s and makeup artist’s social media.

Rumors of infidelity have plagued the couple for a few years, though Williams never confirmed them. She vaguely addressed her marital woes on her show earlier this year, cryptically telling viewers after she returned from a two-month hiatus that her wedding ring would always stay on her hand.

“I’m still very much in love with my husband,” she said. “Don’t ask me about mine.” Pointing to her wedding ring, Williams added, “It ain’t going anywhere. Not in this lifetime.”

However, her ring apparently did go somewhere. On March 25, upon leaving the sober living facility where she has been staying after receiving help for addiction in Florida (though she previously told viewers she was seeking treatment for her Graves’ disease), the morning show host was spotted without her flashy jewelry. She appeared to put it back on to tape her show later that day, but an insider had told us it wasn’t her real ring.

Hunter’s infidelity wasn’t the only thing rumored to be wrong with Williams and Hunter’s marriage. Previous reports have have stated that Hunter’s allegedly abusive behavior ultimately led to the unraveling that prompted Williams to relapse.

She would hide in the bathroom and tell me to knock on the door when he left the office so she wouldn’t have to see him,” an intern from Williams’ former radio show told The Post, adding that it was common for Hunter to pull Williams into a private room and for staff to hear them fighting.

There’s MORE to the story and you can get it Page Six.

Lil Nas X Tops Billboard Hot 100 With ‘Old Town Road’ After Being Removed From Country Charts

Lil Nas X is redefining country music and causing people to ask serious questions about the genre’s racial roots with his song “Old Town Road.” The song originally entered music streaming sites under the country genre (with many defining it as country rap or Trap music) but was booted off the Billboard country charts. The song had been holding steady at number 15 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and has now jumped to number one.

After Billboard removed the song from country music charts controversy broke out. Celebrities weighed in including Justin Bieber and Will Smith. Miley Cyrus’ father ended up doing a remix of the song. It’s interesting to note that Miley Cyrus, the goddaughter of Dolly Parton, was once viewed as country music’s darling (especially with her rendition of Dolly’s Jolene), but then embraced hip-hop.

Miley sparked controversy with her country music fans when Mike WiLL Made-It released “23” featuring Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa & Juicy J. Now it is her own father, Billy Ray Cyrus, who not only defended Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road but sang several verses in the remix.

Now, fans have come forward to say that after Billboard removed the song from the country charts, they bought Lil Nas X’s original version, propelling it to climb the charts. “Old Town Road” knocked Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” from the top spot.

“Old Town Road” has become a viral hit and resulted in Lil Nas X getting signed with Columbia. The remix is just as popular and has introduced more country fans to country rap.

Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus are both active on social media sites and anyone who really wants to get into the discussion about the evolution of country music and whether “Old Town Road” is truly a country song will find plenty of people weighing in on social media.

Some have suggested that Lil Nas X is a one-hit wonder with his viral song but he adamantly states that he is not.

Billy Ray Cyrus had a number one hit with the viral-worthy song “Achy Breaky Heart.” Now that he has joined in on the remix, people are wondering if that song too will break into the charts and become another number one hit.ee

What do you think of Lil Nas X and “Old Town Road?” Are you surprised the song climbed to number one after being removed from the country music charts?

Felicity Huffman Adresses College Entrance Scandal After Pleading Guilty: ‘I’m Ashamed Of Pain I Caused My Daughter’

After pleading guilty in her massive college entrance fraud case, Desperate Housewives actress, Felicity Huffman opened up about the whole thing for the first time. Here’s what she had to say!

Huffman broke her silence on the drama and made it very clear that she accepts ‘full responsibility’ for what she’d done.

In an official statement the star released earlier today, she said: ‘I’m in full acceptance of my guilt, and with regret and shame over what I’ve done, I accept the full responsibility for my actions and I will accept all of the consequences that stem from those actions.’

Felicity went on to say that what causes her the most regret and shame is the hurt her daughter has been feeling because of her.

But of course, she is not the only one affected by the scandal, something the actress acknowledged by saying that ‘I am ashamed of the pain that I have caused my daughter, family, friends, colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and to all the students who work hard every single day to get into college, as well as to their parents who make immense sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly.’

As for whether or not her daughter was aware of the illegal way in which she managed to get into college, Felicity insisted that she knew nothing about it, which makes her feel even more like she’d ‘betrayed’ her.

She concluded her statement by expressing a deep regret that will stay with her forever: ‘This transgression toward her and the public I’ll carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is not an excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty.’

Nipsey Hussle’s Killer Fired Off More Shots After Rapper Talked Back

More details are emerging about the death of Nipsey Hussle and Eric Holder, the 29-year-old reportedly responsible for fatally shooting the beloved rap star outside his clothing store in Los Angeles last Sunday afternoon.

According to TMZ, Holder became enraged when Nipsey talked back to him after he fired off two shots that hit the L.A. native.

Via TMZ:

Sources at the scene of Nipsey’s murder tell us … after Eric Holder allegedly shot Nipsey twice and the rapper fell to the ground, Nipsey raised his head and said something to the effect of, “You shot me, you got me, I’m good.”

We’re told Holder — who had already started to walk away — turned around and walked back in Nipsey’s direction when he realized the rapper was still alive. That’s when Holder fired additional shots at Nipsey … those bullets, eyewitnesses believe, that killed him.

The surveillance video shows Nipsey raise his head after the first two shots. Holder approaches him and fires again, back off, then fire again. He then kicks Hussle before running into an alley.

The gunman was arrested two days after the incident and has been charged with 1 count of murder, 2 counts of attempted murder and 1 count of possession of a firearm by a felon. He pleaded not guilty Thursday and his
bond has been set at $ 5 million. Famed attorney Chris Darden is representing him.

According to the LA Times, the woman who drove the getaway car turned herself in to authorities and is said to be cooperating with investigators. At the time of this report, she had not been arrested.

Nipsey’s funeral will take place Thursday (April 11) at the Staples Center.

Holder returns to court May 10. He has been placed in solitary out of fear he’ll be killed by other inmates.

Rihanna Pulls ‘Geisha Chic’ Highlighter After Outcry

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty has pulled a highlighter from its collection after many slammed its name as racist and offensive.

The controversy began last week when the makeup brand announced that it would be launching a red highlighter called “Geisha Chic,” as part of its latest lineup of Killawatt highlighters.

The backlash over “Geisha Chic” lit up Fenty Beauty’s Instagram page, with many people calling the name disrespectful to people of Asian descent, TODAY reports.

“I think it’s really important that you all rethink this name, as there is a long oppressive history of geisha culture and the fetishization of it is something people need to move away from,” one person commented. “Please reconsider.”

As noted by msn.com, Geishas have a rich history in Japan, and clothes or products inspired by them are often considered examples of cultural appropriation.

Representatives for Fenty Beauty heard the consumer criticism loud and clear and swiftly pulled the highlighter “until it can be renamed.”

“We hear you, we have pulled the product until it can be renamed. We wanted to personally apologize. Thank you so much for educating us,” a rep told a Reddit user on Instagram.

“I like this reply: short, straightforward and with an actual apology,” Reddit user PinkChampagne wrote.

“Good for them, not only apologizing but taking action, and giving no excuses,” said Redditor 321ss.

“This is a good apology. It doesn’t side step or make excuses. I’m super happy,” Reddit user SwimmingCoyote said. “It’s also a good sign that Fenty is willing to eat the cost of pulling an almost-launched product. Even if it’s just renamed, that will require a lot of money to relabel. I appreciate that Fenty didn’t just go forward with the launch while saying that they’d do better next time.”

At the time of this post, Rihanna hasn’t commented directly on the “Geisha Chic” highlighter controversy.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen resigned from her position on Sunday evening, after serving sixteen months on the job.

Vitiello to head U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Homeland Security agency tasked with enforcing Trump’s border policy, in favor of a “tougher” nominee who has yet to be named.

Trump lambasted the current enforcement of American immigration laws for years, and as the nation’s top immigration and national security official, those laws and their implementation fell under Nielsen’s purview.
