Attorneys for Jordan McNair’s family receive information from investigation

Attorneys for the family of Jordan McNair received information about the investigation into the former Terrapins offensive lineman’s death late Thursday night, just hours before a board meeting to discuss the inquiry, a spokesperson for the board confirmed. The University System of Maryland board of regents sent information to the attorneys following a letter sent earlier Thursday by law firm Murphy, Falcon & Murphy saying the family had not been updated on the status of the report. McNair’s parents were looking for a chance to redact any private health information prior to the report’s public release, but decided against doing that once they had reviewed it, Hassan Murphy, a managing partner at the law firm, said Friday. "Jordan McNair’s family has had an opportunity to review the Walters report following our receipt of the documents late last night," Murphy wrote in an email to the office of the attorney general on Friday afternoon. "We believe…

Report: Kendall Jenner ‘Rips Caitlyn’ For ‘Turning Back’ on Family

ANGELA WEISS

There have long been reports and rumors of tension between Caitlyn Jenner and her kids with Kris Kardashian, Kylie and Kendall.

Earlier this year, Caitlyn herself said, without referring specifically to her Kardashian-blood kids, that she doesn’t see much of her family, saying, “I have a lot of children, but sometimes just because of circumstances, maintaining a close relationship with your kids is very tough. They all have lives. They’ve all moved on.”

And although Caitlyn was invited to Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday bash last month—an invite that caught some Kardashian analysts by surprise and was interpreted as a mellowing of the relationship—now comes a report that Kendall Jenner was reportedly seen “ripping Caitlyn a new one” during a tense argument at Nobu Malibu.

Aretha Franklin’s family criticizes eulogy, calling it ‘offensive and distasteful’

TwitterFacebook

Aretha Franklin’s family has criticized the eulogy delivered at her funeral last week, calling it “offensive and distasteful.”

Delivered by Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. in Detroit’s Greater Grace Temple on Friday, the marathon eulogy should have focused on the Queen of Soul’s life and legacy.

Instead, his 50-minute speech delved into topics like how children raised without a father at home is like an “abortion after birth.” 

The Atlanta pastor also said the Black Lives Matter movement wouldn’t matter “until black people start respecting black lives and stop killing ourselves.”  Read more…

Phaedra Parks And Tiffany ‘New York’ Pollard Join Traci Braxton On ‘Braxton Family Values’ Amid Boycott — ‘RHOA’ Fans Are In For A Special Treat

In a surprising twist of events, the “Braxton Family Values” boycott may end up being a treat for some reality TV fans. Phaedra Parks, Tiffany ‘New York’ Pollard, Kim Whytley, and Flava Flav will be making an appearance on the show.

As Celebrity Insider readers know, all of the Braxton family (with the exception of Traci Braxton) made the decision to not show up for filming in June in order to negotiate for higher wages and a bigger wardrobe budget.

Weeks ago, Traci Braxton and the “RHOA” alum popped up in a photo together teasing fans that there was something in the works. Now the secret project has been revealed.

The four celebrities mentioned above will be featured on the WE TV show on a road trip.

During an interview with “Good Day New York,” Traci explained: “Phaedra and I always — each other. So, when, you know, the show was on a little hiatus I continued to work and Phaedra was contacted. Phaedra was like ‘of course I would love to do some adventures with you’ so we got together and we’ve been having a ball since.”

There was also a sneak peek shown with a cameo of Flava Flav showing up to where New York, Phaedra, and Traci were at.

The new season of “BFV” premiered last Thursday and the network revealed that the season is currently being taped.

When asked what made her sisters decide to go back to filming, the singer responded: “I don’t get into their business and they don’t get into mine. “So they decided they was goin’ back. I don’t know what else is goin’ on. They only my sisters. When you put a lot of business things in a mixture of a family setting, it tends to be messy.”

What do you think about Phaedra Parks joining the show? Do you think her appearance will bring anything to the table?

Meghan Markle has just arrived in Toronto solo amid family drama

But what is the Duchess set to do there?

Rex

Meghan Markle has had a trying time in the run and up and since becoming a Duchess, and unfortunately for the former actress, it all seems to surround one side of her family – the Markles.

Ongoing drama has surrounded her father, Thomas Markle, since before her wedding, with the 74-year-old coming under fire for his repeated involvement with the press, this week even comparing the royal family to scientologists for their ‘cult-like’ behaviour.

Throw in Meghan’s estranged nephew, Tyler Dooley, landing his own MTV series after naming his cannabis company after her, and her estranged half-sister, Samantha Grant, rumoured to be appearing on Celebrity Big Brother in the coming weeks, and it’s safe to say that the Duchess of Sussex deserves a holiday.

Luckily, it looks like that time is here, with Meghan reportedly jetting off to her old home of Toronto on a solo trip, with The Mirror reporting that she flew Air Canada, adding that the airline was asked to protect her privacy.

Meghan Markle Effect

But what is Meghan doing in Toronto, and why isn’t Prince Harry with her?

Well, it would make sense for the Duchess to return to her old home to see her friends and family, especially considering she will be off soon on her first big royal tour with Prince Harry, set to visit Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga next month. It is therefore thought that the former Suits actress will spend the time now catching up with her friends and old cast mates.

It is unlikely that Meghan will be catching up with family while she’s there however, especially considering their most recent actions, but we’ll have to wait and see.

We hope Meghan gets the time off she needs and deserves.

7 Members of the Same Family Killed in Horror Crash: ‘My Heart Hurts Like It Never Hurt Before’

Seven family members were killed in a head-on car crash in eastern Oregon on Monday.

Erika Boquet, 29, her three children and Boquet’s stepmother Kyla Brown, 28, and her two children were all killed when a 1999 Toyota 4Runner driving on the other side of the road, crossed into their lane and smashed into their 2016 Toyota 4Runner, Oregan State Police confirmed.

Boquet, her children Isabella, 11, Elisabeth, 9, and Tytis, 6, as well as Brown and her children Arianna, 10, and Xavier, 2, were all pronounced dead at the scene, police said in a statement.

The lone driver of the 1999 Toyota 4Runner, Mark Robert Rundell, 48, also died in the collision.

The young family was on their way to Las Vegas from Washington during the time of the fatal accident, which took place at around 10 a.m.

Boquet’s father and Brown’s partner Louis Johnson was flying to Nevada to meet his family when tragedy struck.

The devastated father and grandfather posted on his Facebook that his “world came crashing down.”

“My heart hurts like it never hurt before. I have no answers to a 1000 whys,” he wrote, asking friends and family to join him at a vigil held Wednesday. “We lost 7 loved ones and the pain we feel is deep. I need to see the love I lost in you.”

Boquet’s brother Jessie Tate has set up a GoFundMe page in hopes of raising money to cover the funeral costs.

“Our family is at a complete loss. We are trying to come up with enough money to bring them home and give them the proper burial they deserve,” the GoFundMe page reads.

“Erika was kind and always giving to others. Her heart was big and full of compassion. Words can not describe how much Erika, Bella, Elisa and Tytis will be missed.”

So far, the page has raised over $ 30,000.

Tate also opened up to The Oregonian about his sister’s devastating death.

“It’s a tragedy I wouldn’t wish on anyone else,” Tate explained to the publication.

“She was outgoing, personable, made friends everywhere she went, and her kids took after her,” Tate continued.

“They all just cared about everyone around them.”

The accident remains under investigation.

Chrissy Teigen’s Daughter Luna Is Every 2-Year-Old in Family Photo

Toddlers aren’t exactly known for cooperating during photo sessions. As soon as a camera comes out they become stoic — or have a sudden urge to pick their nose. Chrissy Teigen understands this all too well. The model, who is vacationing in Bali, tried to get a cute shot with daughter, Luna, 2, and 12-week-old son Miles, on Monday, August 13, but it didn’t turn out the way she hoped.

In the picture posted on Instagram, the 32-year-old holds a sleeping Miles in her arms, while Luna, who is not having it, stares straight ahead. Teigen captioned the snap: “‘Luna. Luna please. Luna one smile. Please for mama. OK that’s fine you don’t have to. Don’t listen to people that tell you to smile. But please can you smile. No it’s OK, never mind. Maybe one smile?’”

Luna was in a better mood a few days earlier. The Lip Sync Battle cohost shared a video of her little girl giggling and admiring wildlife at Bali Safari Park. According to Teigen’s post, Luna “calls every animal mama or dad depending on how masculine or feminine they look.”

The Cravings: Hungry for More cookbook author and her husband, John Legend, have been documenting their family vacation on social media since late July. While the trip has been filled with cooking classes and playtime in the pool, it hasn’t been without drama. Teigen live-tweeted a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit an island 50 miles to the east of Bali. “Oh man. We are on stilts. It felt like a ride. 15 sold seconds of ‘hooooly sh—t this is happening,” she wrote on August 5. Later, she added: “I’m either still trembling or these little quakes won’t stop IM TRYING TO BE NORMAL HERE.”

Designer Space: All in the Family

Design and function combine to create a dream basement for a young family that loves to entertain.

CANADIAN HOME TRENDS CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE SPACE’S DESIGN AND THE LAYOUT?

STEPHEN MORGAN This design was based on the concept of creating the ultimate entertainment area for a very active and social family. The 2,200 square foot basement incorporates a theater room, custom wine cellar, complementary bar area, kids play section and additional lounging space with a fireplace. Both accountants by trade, they understand the value of spending money to create a difference rather than spending it where you would never notice.

As a result, the finished space features many gorgeous and thoughtful details like beautiful double barn doors that also allow the adults to keep track of their little ones playing within their own space. The wine cellar was also designed with both function and style in mind. Wall to wall glass with a key lock door keeps children out but allows full view of the stunning wine cellar.

CHT CAN YOU TALK ABOUT WHAT INSPIRED THE OVERALL DESIGN?

SM The Designer, Amy Bray, wanted to create a nature inspired space with a modern feel. The materials were selected from nature’s palette, including Silver Fox marble, walnut, pebble honed travertine, and Mother of Pearl polished slate.

CHT WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DESIGN ELEMENT IN THIS SPACE?

SM A favorite is the bar area which features 3D Mable and Quartz countertops, a mix of solid maple and painted cabinets and a Mother of Pearl Chevron backsplash. The bar is designed to utilize space under the staircase and creates multiple functioning areas including a cleaning space, mixed drink space and cooking area.

CHT WHAT IS A COMMON MISTAKE PEOPLE MAKE WHEN REMODELING?

SM People often focus more on what is beautiful than what is functional. As a designer or homeowner, you need to focus on practicality first, then add that designer touch. Without a functional space, your love for it can easily be tarnished. – Penguin Basements, www.basementscanada.com

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Marvin Gaye’s Family Hasn’t Signed Off On Dr. Dre For Biopic

 

Dr. Dre wants to bring the legend of Marvin Gaye to the big screen, but the late singer’s family wants him to pump the breaks on that.

Marvin Gaye III tells The Blast, “In regards to the announcement that was made in the media on June 18 as it pertains to a biopic about my father, the legendary iconic singer Marvin Gaye, that is being produced by Dr. Dre, I want to say that it was prematurely announced, therefore I denounce these statements.”

He’s referring to multiple reports claiming Gaye’s music had already been secured with Dr. Dre set to executive produce.

Gaye says, “I love and highly respect Dr. Dre, and we are currently in talks about his participation in the film. However, the movie rights have not been granted nor secured at this time from me as an heir. My hope is to have a group of capable and experienced film producers to be involved with the making of a wonderful masterpiece of my dad’s life.”

It’s pretty obvious that the son of the Motown legend ain’t having whatever Dre is trying to serve up.

He makes it clear, “I’m looking for nothing less than excellence in creating a compelling story of Marvin Gaye’s multi-faceted life. We are progressing steadily toward this very goal, and therefore don’t want any premature or false information out there.”

It’s possible both parties will be able to come to an agreement and get the Marvin Gaye biopic in production.

Family Financial Centers Franchise: A Great Investment for Owners and Communities

Jack Wilson / Chief Development Officer – Family Financial Centers

Until sitting down to speak with Jack Wilson, chief development officer of the Family Financial Centers franchise, I knew the “money” business was big, but not in excess of $ 100 billion. (yes, that with a “B”).  Wilson has been in the financial services industry for many years, and after learning more about the potential in serving the under and unbanked population in the US, he got on board with Family Financial Centers (FFC). FFC offers a full menu of financial services to their customers, which are typically middle-income working families. Their services include check cashing, money orders, wire transfer, electronic bill payment, pre-paid debit cards, gift card buyback programs, gold and precious metals purchasing, and a host of other financial related products. All with the look and feel of a neighborhood branch bank.

To better understand why owning a piece of the financial services industry is something you should be seriously considering, just look at the numbers. Wilson shared with me that while there are 13,000 financial services businesses across the US, they are supporting 30 million customers with 350 million transactions, resulting in $ 106 billion annually. In other words—there’s plenty to go around. A subset of that population is the un/under-banked. There are 17 million unbanked, and 51 million underbanked people living in the US. Family Financial recognized that the unbanked and underbanked were not only underserved, but the services provided needed to be enhanced and the standards raised. That means no predatory lending practices. Currently, FFC has 50 locations in 13 states. In 2017, FFC cashed approximately $ 330M in checks and conducted over 1 million transactions. 2018 estimates are even more impressive, with $ 450M in checks and over 1.5 million transactions.

Family Financial Centers

But why a franchise? This is a question I get frequently as it relates to an array of industries. However, when it comes to financial services, this question becomes much more critical. Financial services and the banking industry are very challenging to get into, due to the number of state and federal regulations. To provide certain banking services, you must be a U.S. citizen, no history of bankruptcy, and you must have a Money Banking Services (MBS) account. Qualifying for and securing an MBS account is exactly what FFC are experts in. They are one of only two firms franchising in the MSB industry. Doing this on your own as an independent is virtually impossible. Lastly, if you were successful in getting up and running and unknowingly skipped any steps (not knowing what you don’t know), a government inspector or auditor could come in and shut your business down immediately. FFC provides complete back-end support—including frequent reviews and audits, daily, monthly, quarterly, and annually.

Family Financial Centers

FFC has three primary models, each of which satisfies an array of investor profiles. Acquisition, Store-in-store, and Tellerless Check Cashing kiosks. Acquisitions are for the investor interested in owning a community-based financial service center, potentially expanding with multiple locations, and who wants a business that already has existing cash flow and has access to capital in the $ 350K–$ 450K range. Store-in-store is for investors that currently have a store location and want to provide additional service to their customers. Tellerless Check Cashing kiosks are the newest offering from FFC, which allows customers to cash a payroll check without having to interact with a live teller and can be placed in a variety of high traffic locations. Tellerless Check Cashing kiosks give a newer investor an opportunity to get into the financial services industry, passively, with about $ 50K.

Family Financial Centers

Wilson would like to see many more African Americans enter into the financial services business and hopes to facilitate that in his role at FFC. If the high revenue potential isn’t enough of a draw, being an FFC owner enables investors to provide much-needed services in a professional setting to our communities, as well as jobs. And ultimately, with its high rate of return, it’s the type of business that enables parents to build a family legacy for generations to come. A legacy goes beyond a mere inheritance. A legacy is something that continues to build and grow, year after year. Not only providing wealth but empowerment. Wilson’s biggest piece of advice? “If your gonna build a family legacy, do it in the $ 106B money service industry.”

Joe Jackson Brought as Much Talent to The Music World as He Did Havoc to His Family

He sired one of the most successful musical groups ever as well as the most famous entertainer of all time. The fame Joe Jackson obsessively pursued for his offspring eventually led to enormous wealth for the Jackson clan. Yet, in many ways, the Jacksons were plagued not only by seemingly emotional demons but financial ones as well.

At one point, the Jackson 5 had a fortune that was reported to be “only second to the Beatles.” By 2008, one of the Jackson brothers had a job stocking groceries, another repaired cars, and a third lived with Katherine and Joe who were in danger then of losing their mansion, ABC News reported at the time.

And of course, the fortune, as well as the debt Michael Jackson amassed, are legendary. At the time of his death in 2009, Michael’s net worth was estimated at $ 500 million. During the singer’s wrongful death trial, it was revealed he was $ 400 million–$ 500 million in debt and on the verge of bankruptcy.

Tito Jackson, better known as T.J., expressed financial hardship after his uncle Michael’s death. He was appointed as guardian (along with the Jackson matriarch Katherine) of Michael’s three children and said he could not afford the cost of their care and requested additional funds from the late singer’s estate.

And who can forget the reports of how ugly the battle for the estate’s money became between the family members? Although Jackson was in the red when he died, he earned the lurid distinction of becoming one of the world’s richest dead celebrities. Royalties from record sales and from the Beatles’ song catalog, which the singer purchased in 1985, earned the estate hundreds of millions of dollars.

The Daily Mail reported in 2012 that Michael’s brothers and sisters, angered over being left out of his will, turned their fury toward Katherine and the estate’s executors. The situation got so crazy and heated that there were rumors that Katherine, who had disappeared from public view for a time, had been drugged and kidnapped over the money. The police were called when Randy, Janet, and Jermaine caused a ruckus at one of the family’s compounds.

How could such a successful, rich family descend into such financial chaos? Many accounts state that Michael Jackson accumulated massive debt from out-of-control spending. Mental health experts assert that compulsive overspending is often a way to compensate for negative feelings—a form of self-medicating. “Most often, compulsive buyers experience a great deal of negative emotion, and the actual shopping isn’t the root of their problem,” wrote Ryan T. Howell, Ph.D. for Psychology Today.  

A drug addict, an accused child molester, at worst—a grown man extremely inappropriate with children, at least; not to mention the countless disfiguring surgical procedures signifying an individual in the deepest well of self-loathing—to call Michael troubled is an understatement.

Perhaps all of the sadness, tragedy, and financial woes of the Jacksons can be traced back to the patriarch. Joe Jackson’s abuse of his family was notorious. From WRTC 103; “Michael was so afraid of his father that he would become physically ill whenever he came near Michael. Michael was known to throw up or faint when his father came near him. He also refused to comfort his children. They weren’t allowed to hug him and they had to call him “Joseph,” not dad or daddy like normal children.” LaToya Jackson accused her father of molesting both her and her sister Rebbie.

There are endless interviews with Joe Jackson where he expresses no regret for his behavior and says he did it to make his children tough.

There are so many lessons to ponder after Joe Jackson’s death: what the cost of astronomical fame can be; the consequences of overspending, no matter how much money one makes; and the lifelong financial and emotional damage an abusive parent can inflict on their children. 

Joe Jackson had, some may say, the most significant hand in forming and then introducing incredible talent to the musical world. Yet, by all accounts, he was a tempest as a husband and father whose reported bouts of rage and domestic violence wreaked emotional—and perhaps financial—havoc in his children’s lives.

#JusticeForJunior: Family And Friends Mourn The Loss Of Bronx Teen

(Photo Credit: Feliz family)

On June 20, a Bronx teenager was dragged from a bodega, brutally beaten and stabbed by a group of men. That teen was 15-year-old Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, affectionately known as Junior.

According to the NYPD, surveillance video shows Junior trying to hide behind a deli counter, before he was dragged out of the store. He returns bleeding and appears to be told to leave. After the men fled the teen was able to walk himself to a nearby hospital, where he later died, CBS reports.

Junior’s death touched so many people and #JusticeForJunior is trending in his honor.

Thousands of people showed up to his funeral at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church to pay their respects on Wednesday. Pallbearers wore Yankee jerseys and wiped away tears as they carried his casket from the church. They were met with a crowd chanting “justice for Junior!”

Arrests have been made in the case and 7 of the 8 men suspected to be involved appeared in court on Wednesday. All of the suspects are being held without bail and will appear in court again on July 2. The suspects are reportedly members of the Dominican gang known as the Trinitarios. The NYPD has been watching and fighting them for years, ABC reports.

According to ABC, the memorial outside of the bodega where he was attacked has grown so large that officials have closed off the surrounding streets.

In addition to community support, celebrities have shown support to Junior’s family and demanded #JusticeForJunior.

Feminists Fought Back Against Family Separation in Los Angeles

Activists gathered Thursday to march around the Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles in response to the Trump administration’s policy of separation migrant parents and children detained at the border. Across the country, activists gathered at similar demonstrations in the last week to demand that the practice be reversed—and the families reunited. In Los Angeles, women formed the front line.

The Los Angeles event was organized by Children over Politics, United Healthcare Workers and The Coalition for Human Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA)—three women-led and women-centered organizations fighting for the rights of immigrant youth, women and families. Staff at CHIRLA are working on a daily basis within a number of communities to reverse the one-sided narrative the Trump administration has leveled against immigrants; Children over Politics provides a safe place where youth can access community, resources and help in making a difference around the issues that matter most to them; and United Healthcare Workers West is a local union housed under the larger Service Employees International Union (SEIU) fighting for immigrants afraid to access care due to the Trump administration’s hostile policies as well as the immigrants who can’t access it within its makeshift centers.

“Trauma lasts for generations,” Hortencia Armendariz, Community Division Director at United Healthcare Workers West, declared to Ms. at the march, noting that the U.S. already has a mental health crisis, and the lasting impacts of the Trump administration’s policies will undoubtedly compound it for another generation. Armendariz is also concerned about survivors of domestic violence that are seeking asylum in the U.S.—many of whom will now be effectively sentenced to death by another recent decision by the Trump administration closing its doors to asylum seekers facing such crimes across borders. 

“SEIU-UHW denounces the decision of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to restrict asylum to victims fleeing domestic violence in their home countries,” she told Ms. “Women and children seek protection under our country’s asylum laws based on the violence and abuse that they suffer at the hands of spouses and family members because their governments are unable or unwilling to control these persecutors. The ruling places the lives of thousands at risk of deportation, death or serious physical harm.”

“We are human at the end of the day, and we should be treated as such,” Belle Lopez, a Children Over Politics facilitator, told Ms. reporters at the protest. “The lawmakers have the power in their hands to make real changes.” Lopez intends to continue organizing young people and encouraging them to be more involved; she also wants to register more young adults to vote, organize more actions like this week’s march and help young people learn more about politics. 

Although the Trump administration, due to political pressure, reversed the so-called zero tolerance policy separating families along the border, it has not yet revealed a plan to reunite those already in detention. Thousands of traumatized children are being held in vacant Walmarts and tent cities, some sleeping in bunk beds within large metal cages and spending up to 22 hours a day indoors, pleading with officials to see their parents. Experts predict some will never see them again.

Activists have been demonstrating outside of federal and local government buildings and immigration detention centers for the last week, and nationwide protests of the Trump administration’s immigration policies are being organized as part of a day of action on June 30.

Feminists Have Zero Tolerance for the Trump Administration’s Family Separation Policy

The Trump administration’s so-called zero-tolerance immigration policies are ripping families apart—yet they refuse to accept blame for the chaos and national shame incurred by the horrifying and heart-wrenching scenes unfolding along the border.

Feminists won’t be fooled by the Trump administration’s misinformation campaigns attempting to eschew blame for the border crisis. Instead, they’re fed up and fighting back.

 

A protestor holds up a sign at the 2017 March for Undocumented Peoples’ Rights in Los Angeles. (Molly Adams)

Practices put into place by the Trump administration mandate that all adults entering the U.S. at its border with Mexico, including those looking to secure asylum, are detained and criminally prosecuted—and their children are taken from their arms and put in separate facilities. What’s worse, many families remain separated even after adults’ cases have processed—leaving hundreds of miles between parents and their children with no promise by the U.S. government of when they will be reunited. The Trump administration announced Wednesday that it is also contemplating constructing a “tent city” for detained children on a military base—effectively exempting the camp from licensing standards for care facilities.

In the last six weeks alone, nearly 2,000 minors have been seized from their parents and guardians by U.S. officials. MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff visited Casa Padre, a children’s detainment center in California, and witnessed children treated like prisoners—they ate in shifts like caged animals, slept packed five to a room in overcrowded cages and spent 22 hours a day inside. In a recording obtained by ProPublica, border patrol agents at the border can be heard mocking young children who are sobbing and crying out for their parents. in the wake of being ripped from their parents at the border.

“Trump is literally holding children hostage in an attempt to force Congress to pay a $ 25 billion ransom that will fund his border wall,” Eleanor Smeal, Feminist Majority President, said today in an email to members. “These children are scared and alone in facilities that look and feel like cages. It must stop. These children must be returned to their families.”

Smeal isn’t alone in her outrage. Women on every side of the aisle—including former First Ladies Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi—have spoken out in protest of the Trump administration’s inhumane border policies. Last week, feminist and human rights activists including Smeal and a slew of lawmakers protested family separation in Washington D.C. and rallied in support of Senator Dianne Feinstein’s Keep Families Together Act, which would prohibit the Department of Homeland Security from stripping children from their mothers and fathers to discourage these families from migrating to America “at or near the port of entry within 100 miles of the border.”

White House officials have repeatedly lied to mainstream media outlets as outrage has grown over the inhumane treatment of migrant families at the border, suggesting that Democrats are responsible for the family separation policy and attempting to hold them accountable for reversing it. But families reaching the border previously were very rarely separated—and no federal law requires or suggests the family separation policy. Now, Republicans in Congress and the Trump administration are using the family separation crisis as leverage to demand funding for a multi-billion-dollar border wall, demanding that lawmakers “compromise” and pass legislation in the House and Senate fundings its construction.

The Feminist Majority has launched a petition campaign demanding that Senators and Representatives support legislation protecting migrant families and reject bills funding a border wall—and calling on the President and Vice President to put an immediate end to the practice of separating families at the border.

“Trump can single-handedly end this separation policy today if he so chooses, but so far, he has cold-heartedly refused,” Smeal wrote to members in an email announcing the action. “That means Congress must use their oversight authority to stop separating families immediately.”

10 funny and totally universal truths about family vacations

by

Carolyn Robertson

posted in Parenting

We recently returned from a family vacation, a trip overseas to visit family that we’ve been planning for years. Everything went remarkably well: sunburns were kept to a minimum and no children were forgotten at the airport. Gold star for us!

Of course, we were back for all of three days before my daughter mentioned mournfully that her friend’s family went to the water slides while we were away. I never get to go to the water slides. Rather than point out the fact that we just took her to the freaking EIFFEL TOWER, I went downstairs to bury myself in the mountain of holiday laundry that is still waiting to be washed.

As wonderful as family vacations are, there are certain truths about traveling with your kids that cannot be denied. Here are 10 of the biggest ones, courtesy of some of my favorite funny parents on Twitter.

1. Your kids’ sleep routines will be out the window

2. You’ll realize that some things never change

3. Your picky eater will still be a picky eater

family vacation

4. Your 5-day road trip will require a U-Haul

5. You will never hear the end of it if there’s no pool

6. You won’t be the only parent losing her sh** at the beach

7. Your kids will always like the subway best

8. You will clean up SO MANY SPILLS

9. You’ll gain a newfound appreciation for your day job

10. You’ll be staring at that bag for months

Has your family been on vacation this year?

Kendall Jenner Shades Donald Trump While Playing Family Feud with Kanye West and the Kardashians

The Kardashian edition of Celebrity Family Feud got political when Kendall Jenner cracked a joke about President Donald Trump — whom her brother-in-law Kanye West ardently supports.

During Sunday night’s episode (which was taped in February), the Kardashians/Jenners faced off against the Wests while competing for $ 25,000 benefitting the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. And model Kendall had the whole family in stitches when she answered host Steve Harvey’s question: “If you had a wild party and everybody’s naked, who is someone you would hate to see show up?”

“Donald Trump,” said Kendall, 22, as everyone, including West, erupted into laughter. (She got the point, since Trump counts as a “celebrity,” one of the six answers.)

The 41-year-old rapper has praised Trump, 71, in controversial tweets, though wife Kim Kardashian West supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

Tips from a family of four who quit their jobs to travel the world full-time

ADVERTISEMENT


Family time is precious and can lead to plenty of new and exciting memories. These parents took their young family one step further. Prepare for the birth of the @bucketlistfamily! After packing their bags to head on the adventure of a lifetime, parents Jessica and Garett have plenty of tips on how they have made their traveling lives work by creating an online persona for themselves.

Stand out from the crowd

In a world of 7.4 billion people, it can be hard to stand out. However, these parents admit it is vital to find your selling point. Whether it is taking unique photos such as picturesque underwater shots, or traveling to a certain number of countries in a set time; to reach fame you need a selling point that will always keep people coming back for more. For this pair, it is their family life and adventures they share with their three children!

Using your skills

Jessica and Garett admit they have always had a love of journal keeping. So when it came time to decide on their online pages, they opted for a way they could capture all their precious memories forever while also pursuing careers. What skills do you possess? It could be blog writing, photography, or vlogs of your travels. It’s time to put those talents to good use and turn them into a real money maker.

Be yourself

After all, it will be much easier to keep up your online antics if you are just being you. These parents admit that in their vlogs they talk as if they are telling the stories to their friends and family back home. Your followers will love the honesty, and fall in love with your content thanks to its individuality. If you try and act as though you’re someone you’re not, you could find yourself losing out on potential business and upset your fans.

All about meaning

One of the most important parts of creating online pages is to create something that is meaningful to your family, according to Jessica and Garett. The parents admit they use Instagram as a way to hold onto the memories of the family adventures so will only post photos that capture their time together. If you aren’t in love with your content, then it may come across in your posts.

Reach out to the fans

The fans are the ones that will make your lives possible! Without a following, it may be hard to live a life on the road as traveling extraordinaires. Jessica and Garett state that it’s better to build up a relationship with a small following than it is to have thousands of fans that never interact with your content. This could be asking questions in your posts, setting up polls, or creating competitions. Whatever it is you choose to do, don’t forget about the people that make your lifestyle possible.

Find the brands

You may be surprised at how many brands are willing to team up with people that are building themselves on social media. If you know you want to work with a particular company, then look at the other content they are putting out there. Could you recreate it with your own unique spin? Brands may not start sponsoring you straight away, and you may just receive some free content in return for some promotions on your page. However, as your fan base continues to grow, the paychecks may just soon start rolling in.

It may sound daunting, but the @bucketlistfamily have shown the world how you can raise a young family while still getting to take in all the sights the world has to offer. Just imagine raising your family in a new country every month. Could you soon be booking your plane tickets to join them on this incredible adventure?

Matchy-matchy swimsuits for the whole family

by

Sabrina Garibian

posted in Products

You all know how much I love matchy-matchy matching with my kids. What better way to bring on summer than with matchy-matchy swimsuits for the whole family? Some of my friends would never in a million years put their kids in matching clothing, never mind matching their kids themselves. I love it though! There will be a day when no one is going to match with me or each other. I’m going to live up matchy-matchy world while I can!

matchy matchy swimsuits for the whole family

Snapper Rock is one of my favorite swimwear brands. The swimsuits are not cheap, but they last two seasons in size for my kids and still look brand new at the end. I have successfully passed down swimsuits that have been worn for five years and still have life in them. In this set I coordinate with the girls by wearing a plain black swimsuit and rocking a lemon green summer hat.

Pro tip: Size up on Snapper Rock.

Lemon Lovers

lemon lovers matching swimwear for the whole family
Kids’ Lemon Swimsuits: Snapper Rock (Amazon, $ 47)

This year Tea Collection used the same print on a swimsuit for boys, girls, and babies. I love when I can coordinate my kids without having them in the exact same outfit. Our toddler, who is more prone to sunburn, wears the rash guard and bottoms while our older daughter wears the one piece.

Pro tip: I rinse out and hand wash swimsuits immediately after the pool or beach and then hang them to dry. My favorite soap is quite easy to come by. I use dish soap! This helps the bathing suits last longer since they don’t sit in chlorine or get messed up from the washing machine and dryer.

Ocean Dreamers

Kids: Tea Collection Make Waves (Tea Collection, $ 35.50/swimsuit)
Women’s Swimsuit: Simply Slim in Sea Blue (Walmart, $ 28)

My kids all have different tastes so sometimes matchy-matchy doesn’t work perfectly. One those days we pick a theme and roll with it. I love this bright pink men’s swimsuit which will make my girls so happy. We pair it with all different pink bathing suits for the girls and the one set of board shorts my son has that has some pink in it. They all work together well!

Pro tip: Let your kids help pick out the matchy-matchy swimsuits and everyone will be happy. Each person helped pick these out.

Pink Explosion

pink explosion

Baby girl: Bubblegum print swimsuit (Mayoral, $ 31.25)
Toddler girl: Embroidered bikini in fuschia (Mayoral, $ 33.25)
Boys: Hurley Phantom 30 Brooks Board Shorts in Pink Flash (Nordstrom, $ 29.98)
Men: Hurley Phantom One Only in Hyper Pink (Amazon, $ 37.50)

Since my kids can get two years out of most swimsuits at this age, we get creative about matching up. Red, white, and blue is always a fun one for us since we usually spend the Fourth of July at the beach with family. I have worn the same swimsuit for a decade and finally updated. It’s easy to match on this one as long as you pick any two out of the three colors.

Pro tip: Plan ahead for your summer matches. I evaluate the kids’ closets at the beginning of the season to see what they might need. Then I try to coordinate or match as much as possible with each other before filling in the blanks.

Salute the Flag

salute the flag

Baby Boy: Cat & Jack Striped Swim Short (Target, $ 8)
Boys: Under Armour Americana Volley Shorts (Nordstrom, $ 35)
Baby Girls: Hello Kitty Stars and Stripes One Piece (Amazon, $ 24.99)
Girls: Cat & Jack Red Follow Your Rainbow Bikini (Target, $ 14)
Women’s Swimsuit: Off Shoulder Flounce Ruffled in Blue White Stripes (Amazon, $ 22.99)
Men’s Swimsuit: Goodfellow & Co. Red Spark Board Shorts (Target, $ 20)

Whether you’re into matchy-matchy swimsuits or not, you have to admit it’s fun! Happy summer!

Family friendly islands in Greece you should visit

ADVERTISEMENT


When it comes to booking your next family holiday, there is so much to think about – where it is, how long it will take to get there, what there is to do for the kids, what there is to do for the adults (when you need a stiff drink after looking after the kids for the whole day), how much it will cost, and what the place can offer you. It’s not easy. But luckily, Greece is made up of over 200 inhabited islands that make the perfect family destinations. Here are the five best Greek islands to visit if you have a family.

Rhodes

Rhodes is one of the most beautiful islands in Greece, and well away from the bright lights, bars, and clubs of many of the ‘party islands.’ This island offers 30-miles worth of white sandy beaches which are perfect for building sandcastles, glorious water which is perfect for splashing and learning how to swim, and some of the best all inclusive hotels in Greece. There are kids’ clubs, cafes, water sports and more to keep the kids entertained. And if you fancy taking in a few of the sights, Rhodes’ Old Town is full of cobbled streets, trinket shops, medieval architecture, and relics.

Naxos

The island of Naxos is the largest of the Cyclades Islands and an incredibly popular vacation destination for families with children. With some of the best and longest beaches in Greece, you could spend hours playing and relaxing on the white sand and swimming in the ocean. Because the beaches are the island’s main attraction, there are so many activities – from horseback riding along the beach to water sports, and pedalo boats, you won’t get bored. If you want to tire the kids out, take them for a hike through the beautiful farms and villages throughout Naxos.

Alonissos

The island of Alonissos is located in a remote area of the Sporades and well away from the tourist traps of Greece. Alonissos is perfect for families with slightly older kids who don’t mind spending most of their day checking out what the island has to offer – but don’t worry, the beaches are still incredible. With the huge Alonissos National Marine Park to explore, you can take the kids out for a boat trip or Kayak to catch a glimpse of the rare seabirds and the Mediterranean Monk Seal, as well as dolphins.

Corfu

If you want a mix of fun and the sun – then Corfu is the perfect option. Located in the Ionian Islands, Corfu is an eclectic mix of pebbled coves, luscious sandy beaches, UNESCO-listed Old Town, incredible rock formations and luscious green inland. As well as checking out all of the sights the island has to offer, you can also take the kids to the famous Aqualand Water Park, or take a trip to the open-air cinema.

Milos

Milos is one of the most unusual Greek Islands. Created by underwater volcanic rock formations, the coast of Milos is rife with smooth cliff edges, sea caves and little coves that are perfect for snorkeling and exploring. The longest beach in Milos consists of three different beaches merging together and merges yellow, pink and red pebbles. With warm underwater springs, the sea will always be the perfect temperature for your family holiday.

Paris Hilton admits she feels closer to fans than her family as ‘fame is lonely’

PARIS Hilton may be known all over the world – but she says fame has left her lonely.

The 37-year-old socialite says she knows her army of social media fans more than her friends and family and says she’s “becoming accustomed to being f***** over.”

Paris reveals how fame left her isolated and with major trust issues in new doc, American Meme
Instagram

Hotel heiress, Paris, revealed all in new documentary The American Meme which plays at Tribeca Film Festival in New York this month.

She became a household name after her  sex tape, called 1 Night in Paris, leaked online.

Paris also starred in reality series The Simple Life, which ran from 2003 to 2007, alongside Nicole Richie.

After her TV career, she tried her hand at music with her self-titled debut album Paris in 2006.

She also tried acting appearing in numerous films including Zoolander, House of Wax and The Bling Ring.

In a clip of the doc on The Hollywood Reporter, she says: “I’m constantly traveling; 250 days a year I’m on a plane, in a different country. So it gets really lonely sometimes.”

She added: “‘I love my fans just as much as they love me.

“I feel closer with them than I do most people that I know. They’re really like my family.”

The hotel heiress, who is worth £70 million, said: “I don’t really trust people. I’ve just grown accustomed to being fucked over.

There’s not a day that goes by that I’m not either texting or FaceTiming or emailing with my Little Hiltons [fans].

“I can truly be myself around them. I know they’re not judging me, they’re not trying to use me.

“They just genuinely love me.”

Last month we revealed how the heiress was left devastated after nearly losing her £1.4million engagement ring in the middle of a nightclub.


Her 20-carat diamond ring flew off her hand while partying with pals in Miami.

Paris, who was at the nightclub with hubby-to-be Chris Zylka, started a search party for the missing rock, while her fiancé started the search at nearby tables.

She revealed she and Chris are likely to marry THREE times in various global locations.

‘Braxton Family Values’ Recap: Season 6, Episode 3: ‘A Party That’s a Drag”

With this episode we find the Braxton sisters still in Las Vegas readying Toni Braxton’s big award day at the 2017 Soul Train Awards and her 50th birthday celebration. Daddy, Michael Braxton Sr., and brother, Michael Jr., are there too and ready to turn up at what’s supposed to be a fun party.

Frick and Frack, also known as Trina and Traci, really put their heads together to try to plan a fabulous birthday celebration that their sister would enjoy. Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite work out that way. Toni shows up to the dinner expecting a wow effect once she enters but, that wow effect is not there – and neither is the entire family. Toni notices the absence of certain individuals and asks “Where is everybody else?”

Towanda’s missing because she has prior obligations with her stage play. Toni’s man, Birdman, isn’t there because he also has a show, and baby sis Tamar is still MIA, probably somewhere with an attitude after hearing what Ms. E said to TMZ.

Not only did Tamar not show up for her sister’s dinner but, she’s also still not answering nor returning anyone’s phone calls. She does however show up at the Soul Train Awards like everything is fine and dandy and even does a little three-second duet with Toni during her set.

We’ll get into the details of that in a minute but first let’s go back to this birthday party/dinner that’s a complete drag.

Trina and Traci come up with the theme “Toni Braxton Through the Ages” and decorate the room with several photos of Toni and her many looks throughout her career. There’s a photo of short hair Toni, long hair Toni, red hair Toni and Toni wearing that unforgettable risqué Grammy 2013 gown that left very little to the imagination. (OK Toni!)

In addition to the photos, both Traci and Trina pay homage to their sister by choosing one Toni style to portray at dinner. The only issue – Toni has no clue that’s what they’re doing.

Trina is sitting next to Toni wearing a short black wig, fishnet pantyhose, and a white collared shirt with a red jacket on the side. Toni thinks she’s going out to do a show or something and wonders why she’s dressed like that. Trina pulls out the picture of Toni’s “Breathe Again” cover art to show her the look she’s trying to mimic.

Then Traci explains her outfit, which is supposed to be a replica of Toni’s “You’re Makin’ Me High.” Judging from Toni’s facial expressions, Traci missed the mark.

The girls aren’t the only ones playing dress up at Toni’s party. When Daddy makes an announcement that he brought along with him a special surprise guest for Toni, things go from “Where is everybody?” to “You can’t be serious.”

Braxton Sr. gets up from the table and leaves the room to go get the guest, and in anticipation you almost think he’s going to surprise her with Birdman, Ms. Wanda (his wife), or even Tamar. But NOPE! Daddy comes back in the room dressed in full drag, wearing a flowered muu muu dress, pearls around his neck and a short blonde wig.

He’s supposed to be dressed as the girls’ grandmother (his mother), Mother Eva. Ummmm….alright Daddy!

Luckily, Mother Eva only stays for a moment and then exits the building. As nicely as she possibly could say it, Toni lets the girls know that her party was a bust. But, as Tamar would say, if she actually showed for the party – They Tried It!

Larry King: Kardashian-Jenner Family Are ‘Uncomfortably Important’

Even Larry King can’t stop keeping up! The syndicated radio host opened up about the famous family’s influence during an exclusive interview with Us Weekly on Tuesday, April 3.

I think the Kardashian phenomena is a great example of something that is unimportantly important. Why do we care? What do they even do? No matter what people want to say about them, we’re clearly drawn to them,” King, 84, who received his seventh Emmy nomination for Larry King Now in March, explained.

Ryan Seacrest does such an amazing job producing that show,” said the TV veteran, who added that he’s met momager Kris Jenner “and I like her and all the kids.”

King explained that, while the reality star brood “don’t have these fantastic talents we relate to celebrity,” the world still has a “fantastic interest” in their lives. “It’s an overwhelming interest and a great example of the current state of pop culture in America,” he noted. “They don’t do much, but because of the paparazzi, TMZ and the way that we intake pop culture via social media, they are famous and we know about their lives. The Kardashians are the best example of the current state of pop culture in America that we are living in.”

The Larry King Live alum even compared the E! stars’ influence to a baseball legend. “Someone asked me who the best example of the roaring ‘20s was and I said Babe Ruth. He was living lavish, having an indulgent time with his life, eating everything and too much of it, but that was life during that time,” he said. “The Kardashians are the perfect example of the times we are living in right now. They share so much of their lives. We are constantly invited in to every aspect of their lives.”

Referencing his own children, sons Cannon, 17, and Chance, 19, he continued, “I have two teenage boys who spend all their time on their iPhone, consuming information and watching the seemingly mundane parts of people’s lives. That is a great indicator of our current state of pop culture. We like to be let into their lives and follow them in that way. It doesn’t need to be miraculous, there just needs to be a lot of openness, and there surely is that.”

King interviewed Kim Kardashian in August 2010 and he also sat down with one of the long-running series’ producers, Seacrest, 43, in March 2013.
