Exclusive 'The Dead Don't Die' Clip: I'm Thinking Zombies -- What?!

When strange, deadly things begin happening in the quiet, peaceful community of Centerville in Jim Jarmusch's horror-comedy The Dead Don't Die, local law enforcement officials are flummoxed, to say the least. Sheriff Cliff Robertson (Bill Murray) and his deputies, including the loyal Ronnie Peterson (Adam Driver), can clearly see that abnormal, disturbing things are happening – things they could never have imagined before, especially in their quiet little town.

So, in our exclusive…

Kevin Durant’s Mom Defends Son from Trolls: ‘You Don’t Know Him’

One thing we have probably all figured out by now is that moms will never stop being moms. They don’t care if you’re 30 seconds or 30 years old. They also don’t care if you’re a basketball star by the name of Kevin Durant.  Now, Kevin is probably used to trash talk from fans, but mama Durant had something to say to anyone with negative things to say about her son.

Wanda Durant took to Twitter on Tuesday morning and announced, “For ALL of you who question my son as a Man, question his Heart, question his Integrity and question his LOVE for the game of basketball, you DON’T know him.”

Wanda added, “He has a heart of a true Warrior! This too shall pass. God Bless you ALL.”

She’s responding to critics who questioned Durant’s dedication to his team after missing the first 4 games of the series between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors.

KD came back Monday night for game 5, and was doing great! But during the 2nd quarter an achilles injury took him out of the game. The Warriors ended up winning by one-point and will still get a shot at the Championship with Game 6 back in Oakland this Thursday at Oracle Arena.

It’s unclear if Durant will be able to make a return this season, but just knowing what we know about achilles injuries….it’s a slim chance.

The NBA Has Plenty of Drama Right Now. But Don’t Forget About the Finals

Now to the basketball game.

Remember basketball? The sport with the dribbling and the passing and defense, in which Stephen Curry buries shots from all impossible angles, and Kawhi Leonard earns comparisons to Michael Jordan with minimal scoffing from a certain generation of fans who hold His Airness in the same regard as any deity? The NBA Finals, between the back-to-back defending champion Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors, who are representing Canada in the championship series for the first time, begin on Thursday.

You might have forgotten about this opening tip, given that all anyone wants to talk about these days, it seems, is the off-court drama involving a bad team that’s decidedly not in the Finals.

You can almost imagine Draymond Green, Golden State’s extremely extroverted forward, waving his hand from Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena, as if stranded at sea. “Hello! Hello! Look over here. We’re playing.” He might add an expletive.

But on ESPN Tuesday night, during a program supposedly meant to preview the championship series, former Los Angeles Lakers President of Basketball Operations Magic Johnson, man of the hour, was responding to an ESPN story in which current and former Lakers employees accused Johnson of bullying behavior during his two-year front office tenure, which ended with his resignation hours before the team’s final game of the regular season. Johnson denied the accusations. But once again, the bureaucratic shenanigans of the Lakers — a franchise that’s won 16 NBA championships, currently employs LeBron James, and is one of the most storied teams in American sports — were stealing all the headlines.

This wasn’t the first time the NBA’s off-court machinations, much of it involving the Lakers, have overshadowed the actual basketball. A little more than a week ago, during the conference finals, Johnson caused a conniption when he declared, during another ESPN interview, that current Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka backstabbed him. (Pelinka, in an attempt to motivate LA’s players, also reportedly fabricated a story about his client Kobe Bryant meeting Heath Ledger for dinner, after Bryant saw The Dark Knight. Bryant, according to Pelinka, wanted to pick Ledger’s brain about his intense preparation to play The Joker. Ledger, however, died six months before the movie’s release. So yeah, the Lakers have some issues.)

Earlier this year, news that New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis had requested a trade, with the Lakers as a possible deal partner, trumped the Super Bowl — the Super Bowl — as a sports TV talking point.

Jerry Seinfeld once joked about one of the oddities of sports fandom: we love athletes when they wear our favorite uniform, then loathe them when they switch jerseys, due to a trade or desertion in free agency. At the end of the day, we’re getting all worked up about laundry.

In the NBA, the laundry beat is red hot.

Which has its benefits. Leagues strive to reach young people in the sped-up digital news cycle. The trades and firings and backstabbing accusations keep basketball in the social media conversation, in effect acting as a marketing tool for the NBA. But the on-court product needs its hype too. NBA Finals ratings have slid a bit the last few seasons, which is largely due to Golden State winning in relatively easy fashion: the Warriors beat Cleveland Cavaliers in five games in 2017, and they swept Cleveland last year. And for the first time since 2010, James isn’t playing in the Finals. With the NBA’s biggest celebrity sitting this one out, will as many fans tune in?

They’ll miss some great basketball if they don’t. The Warriors are the Warriors, always an aesthetically pleasing team that moves without the ball, makes all the right passes, and sinks all the timely shots. The team hasn’t lost a playoff game since Kevin Durant left Game 5 of Golden State’s second round series, against Houston, with a calf injury. Durant’s potential return — he’s out for Game 1 but traveled with the team to Toronto — could mess with Golden State’s winning formula. The offense runs just fine through Curry. But the Warriors have an 8-1 record in NBA Finals games with Durant. He could render them entire unbeatable.

Toronto, however, finished with a better regular season record than Golden State, giving the Raptors home court advantage — something LeBron’s Cavs never enjoyed the past four years. Leonard, who’s averaging 31.2 points per game in these playoffs, might not be as good as Jordan. But he plays like him, with relentless energy on both ends of the floor. His build, his athleticism, his desire to take the big shot all call to mind His Airness.

Leonard’s supporting cast is strong. Kyle Lowry has appeared in five straight All-Star games. Pascal Siakam, a rangy 6’9″ forward, had a breakout year; he’s a finalist for the NBA’s Most Improved Player award. Big-man Marc Gasol, who arrived in Toronto via a mid-season trade, might not be putting up the type of All-Star numbers we once saw in Memphis. But he’s a still a talented veteran hungry for his first title. Off the bench, Fred VanVleet found his shooting touch in the conference finals against Milwaukee.

Today’s NBA is obsessed with “load management” — the hip term for managing a player’s minutes to prevent fatigue. Toronto coach Nick Nurse, however, has employed a tight playoff rotation featuring only eight players, reminiscent of times when a player’s post-game recovery routine consisted of beer. Three Raptors — Leonard, Lowry, and Siakam — lead the NBA in post-season minutes. Will Toronto wear out?

The Finals schedule, however, does Nurse some favors. There are two off-days between all the games, except between Games 3 and 4 in Oakland, which has one off-day. Plus, Nurse held Leonard out of 14 games during the regular season, for “load management.” He’s certainly played fresh these playoffs.

These Finals feature an additional wrinkle: an entire country rallying behind one team. Cities around Ontario have planned to replicate “Jurassic Park,” the raucous outdoor viewing area outside Toronto’s home arena, in their own town squares. Even fans in Vancouver, which lost an NBA team to Memphis back in 2002, are filling sports bars on game nights to cheer the Raptors. A title would be a long-time coming for Canada. After all, Dr. James Naismith, creator of the game, was born in Almonte, Ontario.

Whether Golden State pulls off the rare three-peat or Toronto waves the Canadian flag after clinching its first title, these Finals will give hoops fans something to remember. And then forget, once free agency picks up this summer. Will Durant stay or go? Will anyone sign with those Lakers?

Stay tuned. There’s more laundry to unload.

Rihanna Talks New Music, Says She Doesn’t Plan to Collaborate with Drake ‘Anytime Soon’: ‘I Don’t See It Happening’

In a wide-ranging new interview with the New York Times focused on her Fenty luxury fashion line, Rih took a moment and touched on her new music.

As expected, Rihanna confirmed that her long-awaited next project will be a reggae album.

Check out a few excerpts from the interview:

H: I’m not in the Navy,29 but I am Navy adjacent. So I have to ask some questions I saw floating around the message boards.

RF: O.K. [Laughs.]

JH: Is it true you are doing a reggae album?

RF: Yeah.

JH: You are? O.K., are you collaborating with Lady Gaga?

RF: No.

JH: Oh, they think you’re doing a collaboration with Lady Gaga.

RF: Maybe because she followed me on Instagram. It’s not in the books right now, but I’m not against it.

JH: Are you going to collaborate with Drake again?30

RF: Not anytime soon, I don’t see it happening. Not on this album, that’s for sure.

JH: What is the album called?

RF: Uh, I don’t know yet.

JH: If you don’t know yet, then you probably don’t know when it’s coming out?

RF: I don’t.

JH: Do you have any names under consideration?

RF: No, so far it’s just been R9,31 thanks to the Navy. I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this “R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?” How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?

JH: It’s this gift to the fans who have been most hungry for it.

RF: That would be cute.

Well…at least we know the album is coming. Eventually. Read the rest of Rih’s interview here.

Choose Classics When the Trends Don’t Work

V-necklines are prolific this season. They are all over tops, knitwear, dresses and jumpsuits. It’s high time fashion made a statement with them because they’ve been scarce at retail for years. I am THRILLED for those who enjoy wearing V-necks. They are visually fabulous on larger busts, shorter necks, shorter waists, broader shoulders and petites. No matter how often I see it, I’m regularly in awe at how magically a V-neckline can minimize the size of the bust and lengthen the neck.

The V-neckline trend might be great for you, but it’s not for me. I have the opposite of the body type that wears V-necks well: a regular bust, regular waist, narrow shoulders and a very long neck. My short hair makes my neck look even longer. The higher the neckline, the better it’s suited to my body type. I can wear a V-neckline when it’s a structured shirt collar with a few of the top buttons left open, because the collar adds coverage to my long neck and shoulder neck point, especially when I pop the collar.

As I’m refreshing my wardrobe for Spring and Summer, I’m rejecting all sorts of potentially fabulous on-trend tops and dresses because their V-necklines are deal-breakers (unless they are shirt collars). The V-neck trend is against me, so it’s on to plan B. Reverting back to classics.

I enjoy modern classics full stop. And many of their necklines work well with my body type. This season I’m back in classic silk and cotton blouses, body-con knit tops, and pullovers with polo collars — all of which I haven’t worn for ages as I favoured more trendy styles. I’m thoroughly enjoying my new classic tops because they’ve changed things up, and layer well under jackets in arctic air conditioning. The collection below shows the exact items I’ve bought to refresh my tops capsule with for Spring & Summer.

The fluid cotton and cashmere crew neck pullovers in the collection are classics I wear every season despite trends. These versions are shorter because that’s how fashion is at the moment. That trendy detail is fine because shorter tops work well with exposed high rises and skirts, both of which I wear and enjoy.

Don’t Rush By These Glaring Signs Of An Unhealthy Relationship

Don't worry, we will solve the problem together!

Source: skynesher / Getty

The early days of new love can send you into a heady tailspin as you get caught up in the rush of chemistry and hormones. Because of the intensity of early dating, we may brush by important signs that a relationship is not right for you.

Katie Hood, the CEO of the One Love Foundation, told Business Insider that there are warning signs of an unhealthy relationship that you can catch catch early if you’re paying attention. Here are a few:

Too Intense Too Quickly

Don’t get too flattered when someone says, “I think you are the one,” after the first date.

“It’s not how a relationship starts that matters,” Hood said. “It’s how it evolves.” Just because your new boo is calling you crazy and bombarding you with attention in the early days does not mean they are perfect match for you. In fact, some people “love bomb” you so hard so that you ignore their character flaws. Take your time and find out who this person is. A person isn’t what they say, they are how they consistently behave.

They Diss Your Support System

Unhealthy partners love to isolate their victims–and the best way to do that is to cut you off from the people you love the most.

“Healthy love includes independence,” Hood said. They will often accuse your friends/family of things or diminish them.

 “Why do you want to hang out with them? They’re such losers,” Hood gave as an example.

Jealousy

A little bit of jealousy that doesn’t affect your relationship is fine, but if your partner is crazy possessive or doesn’t trust you, keep an eye out.

“Jealousy is a part of any human relationship, but extreme jealousy is different,” Hood said. “There’s a threatening, desperate, and angry edge to it.”

Use Words As Weapons

Emotional abuse is insidious because there aren’t signs of it that people can see. But words can hurt just as much as physical harm.

“In unhealthy love, words are used as weapons,” Hood said. “Conversations that used to be fun and lighthearted turn mean and embarrassing.”

Don’t Panic! Watch Taylor Swift’s Whimsical Music Video for ‘ME!’

Sorry, the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now. Why? ‘Cause the new era of Taylor Swift is here!

The Grammy winner, 29, dropped her first single and music video for “ME!” from her upcoming seventh album at midnight on Friday, April 26. The song, which features Brendon Urie from Panic! at the Disco, is all about being proud of who you are. “I’m the only one of me, that’s the fun of me,” she sings.

The video kicks off with a scary snake slithering through the street. However, the snake then turns into butterflies. While the first moments feature Urie and Swift screaming at each other in a different language — in front of her cats, of course — the rest of the video is much happier and has a whimsical tone.

YouTube

The 1989 artist announced the name of the single, as well as her rock star collaborator in an interview with Robin Roberts on Thursday, April 25, during the 2019 NFL draft.

The “Blank Space” songstress teased the tune on April 13 by posting a mysterious countdown clock on her Instagram Stories. Swift spent the following days uploading pastel-colored pictures of jewelry, cats, flowers and more, all with the caption, “4.26.”

On Thursday, April 25, the Valentine’s Day actress made a surprise appearance at The Gulch in Nashville, where she had artist Kelsey Montague create a special mural in honor of the music. “So… @kelseymontagueart helped me pull off the best surprise clue reveal today in Nashville,” Swift captioned a picture of herself standing in front of a colorful painting of butterfly wings. “Thank you to everyone who showed up, I’ve never been more proud of your FBI level detective skills.”

The illustration features 13 hearts, in honor of the singer-songwriter’s lucky number, and the other symbols represent her favorite things: cats, rainbows, flowers and more. It also has the word “ME!” printed in bold, black letters at the center of the wings.

Fans have been speculating about new music for several months. On February 24, they noticed that Swift posted an Instagram picture of seven palm trees beneath a turquoise sky filled with 61 stars, and did not provide any details. Some Swifties thought the photo symbolized a shift in tone for her seventh studio album, as well as a countdown to April 26, exactly 61 days from the date it was posted.

The upcoming musical creation will be the “Love Story” singer’s first since Reputation, which was released in November 2017. The CD went triple Platinum and was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 61st annual Grammy Awards.

These Queer Women Don’t Care That Pete Buttigieg Is Gay—They Want a Female President

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos Getty

He makes jokes about Grindr. He embraces his husband in public. He talks about coming out. It’s no surprise that Pete Buttigieg, the Democratic candidate running to be the first openly gay U.S. president, has earned support from across the LGBTQ spectrum. But for some queer women, the primary star is just another white man running for president.

With a record-breaking six women running in 2020, and Hillary Clinton’s bitter defeat still fresh on their tongues, a number of LGBTQ women told The Daily Beast they would simply prefer a female candidate.

“For me, being queer or lesbian, nominating a young, inexperienced white gay man is not my priority,” Duke University professor Ara Wilson told The Daily Beast. “The fact that we have not had women in that high office is, to me, much more marked, much more dramatic, and much more moving.”

Tom Arnold: My Trump Addiction Is Destroying My Career and I Don’t Care

“If you want to be a fucking smart ass, then why don’t you call me back? I wouldn’t have even called you or texted you because you’re a pussy who hasn’t done shit…So fuck you!”

Tom Arnold is inside the Regency Bar and Grill in Manhattan, yelling into the phone of a freelance sound mixer he believes has incriminating audio tapes of President Trump. The mixer worked on The Apprentice and then on Arnold’s short-lived Vice show, The Hunt for the Trump Tapes. Arnold believes Vice sent him on a wild goose chase for recordings one of their own had in their possession all along. (Vice declined to comment.)

Setting his phone down next to a half-eaten cheeseburger, he sighs, adjusts his glasses, and looks at me.

‘Daily Show’s’ Trevor Noah Hammers Fox News’ Mueller Hypocrisy: You ‘Don’t Get to Say Shit!’

Comedy Central

Fox News’ biggest stars are accusing Democrats of pushing conspiracy theories about Robert Mueller after he gave President Trump a pass on collusion. The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah doesn’t think we should let them get away with that.

“Over at Trump TV, they all agree that this was a terrible, terrible thing,” Noah said of the investigation during his opening segment Tuesday night. “And they want revenge.”

Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity—Fox’s entire primetime lineup—have spent the past couple of days going after anyone of the left who has even suggested Trump may have done something wrong. “We will hold every liar, every propagandist, every conspiracy theorist accountable!” Hannity told viewers with no sense of irony.

Don’t Let Just Anyone Handle Your Money: Use Caution When Choosing a Financial Adviser

African Americans may do well to check out a financial adviser’s credentials thoroughly before hiring one to manage their investments. New data shows what you need to know before choosing a financial adviser.

Some 48% of Americans mistakenly believe all financial advisers are required by law to always act in their clients’ best interest, a new survey by digital wealth manager Personal Capital shows. The finding comes after the Securities and Exchange Commission this month settled charges against 79 investment advisers who must return over $ 125 million to clients tied to mutual fund sales, with a large chunk of the money going to retail investors, DI Media reports.

The Personal Capital 2019 Financial Trust Report further disclosed that 65% of investors who work with a financial adviser incorrectly believe that financial advisers only make recommendations that are in a client’s best interest, a rise from 46% in 2017.

A startling discovery was that just 44% of Americans know the fee amounts they pay on all their investment accounts. And 20% do not know how their adviser is paid. Personal Capital claims hidden fees can add up to more than an eye-popping $ 400,000 in an investor’s lifetime.

This report stemmed from a CARAVAN survey by Engine among a sample of 2,007 adults—1,004 men and 1,003 women—18 years of age and older. The online interviews were conducted in December 2018 and entailed responses from 202 African Americans.

Though 30% surveyed think a financial adviser is likely to take advantage of a consumer, 97% trust that their own financial adviser will act in their best interests.

A Lack of Awareness When Choosing a Financial Adviser

Accentuating the lack of awareness pertaining to advisers’ legal obligations to clients, 18% were unable to identify if their adviser is a broker/dealer or a fiduciary. The 26% who indicated their advisers are broker/dealers should reconsider if they are receiving unbiased financial advice, Personal Capital says.

Questioned about who they would trust their money with, 28% said a registered investment adviser, 21% a big bank/brokerage firm, 14% a local advisory company, 8% an online platform. Thirty-three of the respondents said none of the above.

On the loyalty front, millennials surprisingly were the most devoted with 80% declaring they would follow an adviser to a new firm. Seventy percent of Gen Xers and 66% of baby boomers felt that way. Respondents reflected on the usefulness of technology in financial services and cybersecurity concerns.

The overall findings come after years of public debate among regulatory bodies over the fate of the fiduciary rule focused on arguing the definition of “best interest,” which Personal Capital claims may be contributing to the increased public confusion.

“While we hope all financial services professionals and firms are working with Americans’ best interests in mind regardless of fiduciary designations, this simply isn’t the case,” said Jay Shah, CEO of Personal Capital. “When it comes to wealth management, anything less than advice that meets the fiduciary standard simply isn’t acceptable. Investors deserve more.”

How to Find a Reputable Adviser

Responding to the Personal Capital report, Kevin Mayeux, CEO of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, said, “Broker-dealers and their registered representatives provide affordable, trustworthy financial services and products to clients at all income levels, from the wealthy to those with more modest means.” The NAIFA is the nation’s largest membership association of insurance and financial professionals.

Mayeux added,  “Fiduciary regulations, such as one imposed by the U.S. Department of Labor before it was struck down by a federal court, can create burdensome and costly requirements that make it difficult or impossible for advisers to provide individualized, human-on-human advice and services to middle- and lower-income consumers. Many registered investment advisers charge fees and require account minimums of $ 200,000 to $ 1 million or more while relegating people who cannot maintain those balances or afford those fees to one-size-fits-all computerized models or call-centers.”

“The truth is, insurance and financial advisers are highly-trained and licensed professionals. They are governed by state and federal securities laws, and every securities transaction they complete with a client is subject to compliance reviews by their broker-dealers and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.”

Mayeux pointed out NAIFA members agree to abide by a code of ethics that includes a promise to promote their clients’ interests. He says the vast majority of these advisers build and maintain enduring relationships with clients that often last decades and would not be possible if the advisers were not looking out for the best interests of their clients.

“Nonetheless, NAIFA supports an ongoing effort by the Securities and Exchange Commission that would further require advisers to serve in the best interests of their clients and is working with the SEC to ensure that the final rule benefits consumers of all income levels and allows them to continue to receive needed services and advice.”

A “Staunch Advocate”

Geoffrey Brown, CEO of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors, said the findings from Personal Capital’s 2019 Financial Trust Report are not surprising. He said because of efforts to mislead and confuse the public by non-fiduciary financial services professionals, consumers often don’t have the clarity needed to evaluate the relationship they have with their chosen professional.

He added this leads to a lack of understanding about the true cost of the engagement and the duties owed to the client under the law. Since its inception, Brown claims NAPFA has been a staunch advocate for fiduciary principles, something he maintains is the most transparent way of serving the public. The NAPFA calls itself the country’s leading professional association of fee-only financial advisers.

“In today’s marketplace, it’s virtually impossible to distinguish a salesperson from an adviser, or between those advisers who are legally obligated to provide advice under a fiduciary standard versus those who are not. When working with an adviser or salesperson, consumers need to be clear about the nature of the relationship,” Brown says.

‘Don’t Be Tardy’ Recap: Kim Calls Kroy ‘Stupid’ for Being With Her

Age is just a number! Just prior to turning 40 last May, Kim Zolciak Biermann was not happy about it and opened up about her aging grievances on the Friday, March 8, episode of ‘Don’t Be Tardy.’

Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s Best Comebacks

“Do you ever get mad at him for being 32?” Personal chef Tracey Bloom bluntly confronted Kim about her and husband Kroy Biermann’s age difference ahead of Kim’s 40th birthday, chuckling that the former NFL player had “eight more years” before he turned 40. Without a beat, Kim replied, “Why would you marry someone that’s so much older than you? That’s so stupid. You could have married some 22-year-old teeny bopper.”

In a light-hearted testimonial shot with husband Kroy, Kim joked, “I’m very vain. Everything’s getting older. Like, at 60 my titties are gonna sag, but he’ll pick ‘em up for me.” When Tracey then asked if Kim had any reason to look forward to getting older, the mother of six replied bluntly, “No. What is there to look forward to?” She then joked, “Because you get ‘wiser’? No, I’m good.”

The episode also followed the Biermanns as they made their way to a food truck festival while researching their newest business venture, a coffee truck. The family’s initial excitement was brutally knocked down to reality when Kim and Kroy talked with successful food truck owners who lamented their 20-hour work weeks. One owner opened up about suffering a heart attack while working, which appeared to be the final straw for Kroy.

Dont Be Tardy Recap Brielle Bierman Ariana Double Date
Brielle Bierman on ‘Don’t Be Tardy.’

Former ‘RHOA’ Stars: Where Are They Now?

Kroy, who’s taken a step back since his high profile football career, opened up about his next move, saying, “Playing football in the NFL was really a huge time commitment.” He added that if he worked long hours again he would, “miss my kids’ life. … 20 hours and heart attacks? We’re not doing that.” Kim agreed that putting the coffee truck idea on hold was for the best, saying, “I know we’re gonna be successful. Whatever we touch turns to gold, but, I’m also a realist.”

Brielle Biermann spent the majority of the episode opening up about her dating life following her March 2018 split with baseball player Michael Kopech. Brielle shared a flirty burger date with high school ex-boyfriend, Slade Osborne, and even went on a trampoline double date with younger sister Ariana’s boyfriend’s older brother, Parker.

‘Real Housewives’ Kids, Then and Now

While sparks weren’t exactly flying with Parker, the busy 21-year-old teased the idea of reuniting with Slade, saying, “I never go back, always go forward, but I don’t know if that will be the case with Slade.” When Slade asked Brielle about her breakup with Michael, Brielle opened up saying, “We literally have not talked since the day we broke up.” She added brightly, “I did not like him near as much as I liked you.”

‘Don’t Be Tardy’ airs on Bravo Fridays at 9 p.m. ET.

Kim Kardashian Slams Theory She’s Selling Her Looks to Fashion Nova Ahead of Time: ‘I Don’t Support What These Companies Are Doing’ [Video]

Kim Kardashian has been accused of selling her high-end designer looks to fast-fashion brands like Fashion Nova to make a profit — but the reality star says that’s not the case.

Earlier this week, Kim wore a vintage one-of-a-king Mugler dress. The following day, a knock-off version appeared on Fashion Nova’s website with a waitlist ready for purchase.

According to Kim, Fashion Nova (and other fast-fashion retailers) simply work fast in effort to capitalize on what she wore.

There’s a twist though — days before Kim wore the dress, a Fashion Nova model posted pictures of herself at a photo shoot for the knock-off version. The photos on the screen appear to be labeled labeled ‘Kim Dress.’

UPDATE: See stories for a screenshot of the date of the Capture One session (it’s labeled 02-14-19). Fashion Nova Mugler knockoff shot 4 days before Kim wore it on 02/18/19. Kim, you’ll never fess up to your sneaky lil collaborations, but we got all the receipts ?. • ????????? At some point recently, a fast fashion photo shoot happened featuring a vintage Mugler dress that @kimkardashian just happened to wear on Sunday night to the Hollywood Beauty Awards…and yes, it appears to be a real dress, not photoshop. Ahead of Fashion Nova releasing the dress at 9pm EST tonight, house model Yodit Yemane may or may not have accidentally leaked a story 2.5 hours earlier of photo options from her shoot featuring the Mugler replica. The file names were even labeled “Kim dress” while it’s now being called “Winning Beauty Cut Out Gown” lol. This begs the question: Did Fashion Nova whip up the dress overnight in their Los Angeles atelier after seeing Kim in it or is she peddling her vintage finds to mass retailers ahead of debuting them for a calculated, timely release? ????????? • ? : Getty • #kimkardashian #mugler #thierrymugler #manfredthierrymugler #bodycon #cutout #barelythere #strappy #straps #black #vintage #dress #velvet #fashionnova #wiwt #ootd #kuwtk #hollywood #beauty #kkwbeauty #kardashian #ecommerce #shady #smh #photoshoot #model #fashionmodel #dietprada

Dear Howard Schultz, You Don’t Understand the American Dream

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast

The term “American Dream” gets tossed around a lot. Politicians promise to deliver it. Pollsters poke and prod it, asking for the public’s opinion on its attainability. The American Dream is a handy metaphor for journalists writing on a subject’s upward ascent, and the concept gets namechecked in countless songs across every genre, often with an overtone of aspiration or braggadocio. Yet no matter who’s invoking the American Dream, they almost always misuse it by framing it in material terms: two cars in every garage; exceeding the previous generation’s wealth—owning a home is a perennial favorite, too.

Only last week, former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who’s thinking of running for president, provided a fine example of our collective conception of this idea, telling the Morning Joe crew, “I’m self-made. I grew up in the projects in Brooklyn, New York… I thought that was the American Dream.”

Schultz—and most of us—thought wrong, because the original American Dream—that is, the term’s first usage, in author James Truslow Adams’ 1931 history The Epic of America—was far more nuanced, and far more radical, too.

People Share Why They Don’t Use Financial Advisers; Some Alternative Ways to Get Financial Help

Many people just do not want to meet with a financial adviser despite the fact that using one may provide numerous financial advantages. Financial advisers provide objectivity of financial situations and give advice to help establish a more secure financial position.

A few personal finance professionals, authors, teachers and bloggers, from the Elevate Community, dedicated to uplifting people of color financially, shared their perspectives:

“Just Not Ready”

Just like weight loss, financial wellness is one of the top three new year resolutions and personal goals. Most people generally know what to do to improve their financial situation, but some are just not ready to do it.

“We like comfort!” says Andre Albritton of The Millennials Next Door. “A financial adviser will give recommendations outside of our comfort zone which can be a frightening experience.”

Money mantras like “save more and spend less” and “pay yourself first” have been stated by every financial expert. The reality is if a person is not mentally ready, they will not execute any plan.

Cost

On television, rich and famous people seem to be the only ones talking about meeting with financial advisers. This creates the perception that it takes thousands or millions of dollars to work with a financial adviser. The consumers living paycheck to paycheck with minimal or no assets (like a home, investments, etc.) may presume it is too expensive to meet with a financial adviser.

Many middle-class Americans are working hard to pay their bills and make ends meet. Paying to meet with a financial adviser may seem premature or unrealistic.

Denial

“People put off seeing a financial adviser for the same reason they avoid going to the doctor or dentist” shares Alfred Edmond Jr., BLACK ENTERPRISE Your Money Your Life Podcast host and co-author of Loving in the Grownzone. “They don’t want to deal with the choices, remedies, or lifestyle changes that will likely be necessary to improve their condition.”

People that practice avoidance in the hope that the problems will go away, or correct itself will deny the problem, and chose not to deal with the financial situation. Unfortunately, avoiding the dis-ease in the bank account will leave a person vulnerable to more financial hardships.

“People are embarrassed about their current (financial) situation and believe their choices got them in that predicament” explains Atiya Brown of Live Financially Savvy Podcast. “Since they don’t know the extent, they may tend to ignore and avoid.”

Pride

Almost 10 years ago, my pride almost put me in the poor house. I remember being ashamed to admit my major money mistakes and felt like a failure. I locked myself in a self-inflicted private prison of shame.

People suffer in silence because of their pride and the shame they feel because of making money mistakes. Making the decision to let go of the shame and ask for guidance will help to release the guilt.

Product Pushers

Julien Saunders of rich & REGULAR states, “Some financial advisers have a tendency to be pushy. Although well-intended, some (financial advisers) can make a person feel pressured. Consumers must fully understand the implications, alternatives, or cost to them as the investor.”

Some financial advisers are perceived as product pushers. Product pushing financial professionals turn off and scare away many consumers. Even though consumers know that financial advisers sell products, they do not want to feel pressured into purchasing products they don’t understand.

Stranger Danger

People do business with people they like, know, and trust. Sharing secret financial skeletons with  someone you don’t know can be extremely uncomfortable. It is even more frightening to give control of your money and assets to that stranger.

Patrina K. Dixon of It’$ My Money says, “Some people have trust issues. Therefore, if they do not trust the financial advisor, they will not be safe to share relevant information the adviser may need to assist the client.

 

Some Alternative Options to Using Financial Advisers 

Many are not ready for the financial commitment to meet or work with a financial adviser. Here are some alternative options and resources to help you “start where you are.”

Financial Blogs and Podcasts

Financial blogs are an excellent resource for free money tips and strategies. Here are a few blogs and podcasts to check out.

Tanya Rapley’s My Fab Finance Blog teaches millennial women of color how to regain control of their finances, overcome financial challenges, and pay off debt.

Talaat and Tai McNeely host the His And Her Money Podcast. Their podcast and blog aim to help married couples reach their financial goals together.

Marsha Barnes’ The Finance Bar Blog connects individuals to their financial wellness. She offers one-on-one coaching and an app that shows where your money is going.

Online Financial Tribes

John Hope Bryant, the founder of Operation Hope stated, “If you hang around nine broke people, you will be the tenth.” Connecting with people who have similar financial goals or have achieved the success desired is essential to financial success. Here are a few online financial tribes to check out.

The Live Richer Academy founded by Tiffany Aliche, who is known as The Budgetnista, is a membership-based online platform that offers courses designed to help participants take their finances to the next level.

Founded by Sandy Smith, of Yes I Am Cheap blog, Hustle Crew is a private Facebook group community that provides resources on entrepreneurship and starting a side hustle.

Financial Coaches

Financial coaches educate clients on the basics of money and credit management. They help their clients establish financial goals and create a customized plan to reach those goals. Financial coaches act as accountability partners to encourage and challenge their clients to success.

Financial coaching services range free through a non-profit programs to a few hundred dollars per hour to work with popular financial coaches privately.

Scholars of British politics cannot quite believe it. No leader before has survived such a parliamentary drubbing, described by many as “the worst in history.” But May has. How?

Mike Pence: I Don’t Know Which Ex Presidents Told Trump to Build a Border Wall

NBC

Oops.

When Vice President Mike Pence was asked to name exactly which of President Trump’s predecessors supported his border-wall plan, the former Indiana governor came up empty.

On Friday, Trump stated: “This should have been done by all of the presidents that preceded me. And they all know it. Some of them have told me that we should have done it.”

Nurse Alice: Don’t Ignore this Kotex Tampon Recall

While some of you may cringe that we’re talking about tampons this is a serious matter. No matter how much you despise Auntie Flo, this is one recall you should not ignore. Some Kotex tampons have been recalled after reports that the feminine-care product was unraveling and coming apart inside consumers’ bodies.

Kimberly-Clark, which manufacturers personal-care products, announced last Tuesday that the regular absorbency U by Kotex Sleek Tampons have been recalled in the United States, and Canada, because of “a quality-related defect,” explaining that some consumers reported having to seek medical attention “to remove tampon pieces left in the body.”

The company said in a news release that some consumers also reported irritation, infections, injuries and abdominal pain among other issues.

Women should be on high alert for symptoms of any retained tampon product. Unless the tampon has completely unraveled it may not be as obvious that all of its contents have not been removed. So please be sure to inspect the removed tampon to make sure it has been removed in its entirety. If the product has unraveled or come apart upon removal, please follow up immediately with a health professional who can inspect the area and remove any retained product. The provider can also inspect for any irritation, damage, injury, or infection that may be a result of remaining material.

In worse case scenarios, retention of tampon products can lead to Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). This is a rare lethal complication from a bacterial infection that creates toxins that overwhelm the body. TSS is treatable if recognized early. Signs and symptoms include sudden fever, nausea, vomiting, low blood pressure, confusion, muscle aches, and headache. Initial treatment includes a cocktail of antibiotics, medications to maintain adequate blood pressure, and IV fluids for dehydration and to flush out toxins.

The recall is limited to specific lots of U by Kotex Sleek Tampons, Regular Absorbency, that were manufactured Oct. 7, 2016 – Oct. 16, 2018, and distributed Oct. 17, 2016 – Oct. 23, 2018. Consumers can identify this product by looking for specific lot numbers found on the bottom of the package. A full list of recalled lot numbers is available on the U by Kotex website. Retailers have been alerted to remove the recalled lot numbers from shelves and post a notification in their stores.

No other U by Kotex-branded products are subject to this recall.

This airline banned puppies and kittens as emotional support animals—but don’t get mad yet

This airline banned puppies and kittens as emotional support animals—but don’t get mad yet


This airline banned puppies and kittens as emotional support animals—but don’t get mad yet

If you’ve traveled by air over the past few years, chances are you’ve encountered an emotional support animal or two. But while these cuddly companions can be a big comfort to passengers with anxiety and chronic health issues, they’ve also attracted a lot of criticism. Now, Delta Airlines is tightening the restrictions surrounding emotional support animals—starting with puppies and kittens.

According to CNN, starting on December 18th, passengers flying with Delta will not be allowed to bring emotional support animals younger than four months old. On flights longer than eight hours, emotional support animals of any age will be prohibited. A press release published by Delta on December 10th does note that if you bought your ticket before December 18th and have already requested a support animal, you’ll still be allowed to travel as originally planned—as long as you’re flying before February 1st.

The age restriction on traveling companions comes out of legitimate health concerns. The Center for Disease Control notes that dogs can’t be vaccinated for rabies before they’re three months old, while cats must wait until they’re two months old. Once an animal gets their shots, they are not considered officially immunized until a month later. Delta’s age restriction basically helps to ensure that animals on flights won’t be spreading a deadly infection.

Additionally, in its announcement, Delta wrote that from 2016 to 2017, there was an 84% increase in accidents involving service and support animals on flights—including animals relieving themselves on flights and biting passengers. The ban on emotional support animals on long flights is likely a change made in reaction to this.

John Laughter, Delta’s senior vice president of corporate safety, security, and compliance, said in the release that the airline would continue to review its policy.

“These updates support Delta’s commitment to safety and also protect the rights of customers with documented needs–such as veterans with disabilities–to travel with trained service and support animals,” he added in his statement.

For now, at least, it looks like we won’t be seeing any more emotional support puppies on Delta flights.

As an Afro-Latina, Gina Rodriguez’s Comments Don’t Surprise Me

First things first, Latina women can be and say racist things, too.

In many Central and Latin American countries and communities, black women — let’s just say what it is, black people — are often erased or seen as second-class citizens. That reality is the first thing that came to mind when I saw the uproar concerning Gina Rodriguez’ statement about African American women making more money than Latina women in Hollywood.

“I get so petrified in this space talking about equal pay, especially when you look at the intersectional aspect of it, right? Where white women get paid more than black women, black women get paid more than Asian women, Asian women get paid more than Latina women, and it’s like a very scary space to step into,” said Rodriquez during a recent roundtable discussion with fellow actresses Gabrielle Union, Emma Roberts, and Ellen Pompeo.

I honestly think it is difficult for Rodriguez to see black women win; given the fact this is not the first time she has spoken on the success of black people. I’m not sure why since black women set the standard for liberation and lead movements women of color and white women benefit beyond the ranks of entertainment. Black women have had an unparalleled journey in the film industry.

Need Rodriguez be reminded of the women who fought to integrate plays, films, and television shows and made history despite adversity? Or should we recall the history of black women being subjected to playing roles similar to the realities their mothers and grandmothers lived through as servants, during extreme moments of injustice, poverty, and racism?

And yes — I stretched before I reached on this one. I get the context of Rodriguez’ comment. But at the end of the day, she had no right to use black women as a point of reference or comparison to communicate her feelings about diversity and equal pay in Hollywood; invalid or not.



Somebody get her on the phone.

Instead of counting a black woman’s coins, she should find ways to partner and collaborate with us. As someone who has been given the label and responsibility of a said activist, she could be using her energy to uplift women across the Latin community. But then again, that would require her to see and put on for Afro-Latin women who make less than her as some of the most underrepresented women in general. But that’s an entirely different story.

I often pay homage to my late immigrant Garifuna Honduran grandmother whose name I carry and use in my byline. Today, I decided to channel her Latin spice to call Rodriguez out and charge her with the task of being more mindful of her position as a young Latina with power and privilege.

I want to see all women win and we can’t do that if we’re not helping one another build.

Don’t Want Turkey for Thanksgiving? Here are 5 Turkey Alternatives

Anyone else out there want another dish besides turkey for Thanksgiving? If so, believe it or not, you’re not alone. A recent Yahoo survey revealed many Americans are moving beyond making the turkey as the center of attraction. Why not try some of these turkey alternatives  this year?

Up in Michigan, we are always looking for new ways to eat our abundant cherries–dressed with pomegranate molasses and spooned over the lamb, they taste just as striking as they look, a perfect sweet and tangy balance to the rich meat.” (Source:Maureen Abood of Yahoo.com)

Draymond Green reportedly told Kevin Durant: ‘We don’t need you. We won without you. Leave’

Draymond Green got into an argument with Kevin Durant so feisty, it caused a Warriors player to predict Durant will now leave Golden State in free agency next summer. Green blurted to Durant something along the lines of, “We don’t need you. When Green and Durant bickered last year in a similar, though less heated, incident, it was claimed Green was using “reverse psychology” to motivate Durant.

Numbers Don’t Lie: ‘Today’ Ratings Improve Since Megyn Kelly’s Firing

Megyn Kelly’s firing from the 9am hour of the ‘Today’ show has been good for ratings.

via Page Six:

Variety reports that since Kelly was canned about three weeks ago, “viewership in the key demographic favored by advertisers in that time period is up around 10 percent.”

The news will perhaps not surprise NBC brass, who saw viewers abandon the time slot in droves after Kelly took over from Tamron Hall and Al Roker in 2017.

Anecdotally, “Today” also saw a spike in viewers after it fired Matt Lauer last November.

Maybe ‘Today’ should fire everyone and hire a slate of fresh, new, and diverse talent.

Mindy Kaling says people have trouble with “women who don’t hate themselves,” and it’s a sad truth

Mindy Kaling says people have trouble with “women who don’t hate themselves,” and it’s a sad truth


Mindy Kaling says people have trouble with “women who don’t hate themselves,” and it’s a sad truth

There’s no denying that Mindy Kaling is goals—she’s a show runner, actress, and best-selling author, and she seems to genuinely love the skin she’s in. Which—as she noted in a recent speech—isn’t always easy, or even encouraged, among women. During Glamour’s 2018 Women of the Year Summit on November 11th, the Mindy Project star noted that some people are “turned off” by her confidence.

“It’s not that I’m into myself,” she said. “It’s that I don’t hate myself. In my career, a lot of people have a problem with being around women who don’t hate themselves. Never hate yourself.”

We are so here for Kaling’s observation. Women are still socialized to downplay their accomplishments, to apologize before contributing in meetings, and to generally take up as little space in a room or situation as possible. And when they don’t? They’re hit with labels like “conceited,” “arrogant,” and, yes, “bitchy.” And it has got to stop.

Kaling’s advice for women looking to build their confidence and make their dreams come true is to always feel prepared. “I always just did the legwork, and it meant I never came to anything unprepared. The only reason I was able to be confident was because I literally couldn’t not be confident with the amount of research and preparation I did.”

Thank you for your wisdom, Mindy. We’re taking note.

Bill Maher on Being Targeted by Pro-Trump Mail Bomber: ‘They’re So Stupid, They Don’t Know Science’

HBO

This past week, we learned that in addition to shipping pipe bombs to the Obamas, the Clintons, Joe Biden, Rep. Maxine Waters, CNN, George Soros, Robert De Niro and a host of others, pro-Trump mail-bombing suspect Cesar Sayoc was also looking to target comedian Bill Maher, whose management firm was evacuated after it received a suspicious package addressed to him (it was thankfully a false alarm).

And on Friday night’s Real Time, the political satirist addressed the controversy as only he could.

Everybody has to vote,” announced Maher to cheers from his in-studio audience, before joking, “We have an election. Democrats, if you’re voting by mail, make sure there’s enough stamps on your thing, and Republicans, the same goes for your bombs.”
