Sammi Giancola Planning On Returning To ‘Jersey Shore?’ – She’s Still Close With The Female Cast Members!

It turns out that Sammi Giancola is still pretty close with her former female Jersey Shore co-stars even though she refused to be part of the reboot. Is she considering a return nowadays?

The answer’s pretty clear as far as she’s concerned!

Sammi is not planning on coming back in Jersey Shore despite how close she still is with the rest of the female cast.

As fans know, she and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro dated for no less than five years, and their drama as a couple was pretty much a big part of the show.

That being said, the audience mostly rooted for them to make it work but in the end, they still broke up.

Sammi would not take him back, even if she were single, and similarly, she would never return as a cast member on Jersey Shore either.

One source shared with HollywoodLife that ‘Sammi wants nothing to do with Jersey Shore anymore other than the friendships she has built with her co-stars over the years. She’s extremely close with all of the females, especially Nicole (Polizzi) and Jenni (Farley). However, Sammi enjoys her private life off camera and has no interest whatsoever in returning to TV.’

Amid Ronnie’s terrible legal drama with baby mama Jen Harley, Sammi is very happy and in love with her significant other, Christian Biscardi.

They have been together since 2017, and he often appears on her social media platforms. He treats her like a queen, and their romance is just goals!

Last summer, he commented on a selfie of theirs that ‘I will always be the worst looking person in every picture we take and I am okay with it.’

In response, she wrote: ‘You’re my better half.’ So sweet!

The insider added that she really likes having a normal life now and she would not give up her privacy to be on the show again.

How Have Female Bosses Affected Your Career?

Here’s a career question for you all: How have female bosses affected your career? Do you notice differences in the way mentorship and sponsorship look when it’s coming from a female boss?  

I recently attended an event where an older woman shared with the group how she had inadvertently held back a woman’s career when she thought she was helping her. She explained that she saw the younger woman as a rockstar with potential to go far in their advertising company, so she put her on the biggest accounts and kept her off the smaller, more volatile accounts that involved more risk. But the younger woman came to her and pleaded, “Stop protecting me!” — because while the smaller accounts did involve more risk, she saw that her male cohorts would learn faster each time they failed. At first, the older woman was taken aback — she had meant to be sponsoring the woman! — but she realized that she was treating her as a mother would, instead of a boss.

That’s probably the best outcome I’ve heard of a woman inadvertently holding another woman back and then realizing the error of her ways — but I’ve also seen a lot of others where women bosses, in particular, think younger women should have to “pay their dues” — grunt work, long hours, sacrificing a social or family life, etc. — in order to be “worthy” of sponsorship. A lot has also been written about the Queen Bee syndrome, where sometimes women at the top actively hold back other women because they fear there’s only room for a few women. So I thought it would be a really interesting discussion here: How have female bosses affected your career? Can you point to anything the good mentor/sponsor bosses did that was specifically different than bosses that weren’t great mentors, or were actual adversaries? In general, do you feel like more men or women have been your sponsors in your life? For those of you a bit more advanced in your careers — as you’ve moved into more roles with responsibility, have you actively tried to mentor and sponsor other younger women?

Missy Elliott has long been viewed as one of music’s best talents across the board, and she is getting more recognition for that solid fact. She becomes the first female rapper to be inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, joining some other big and familiar names as well.

New York Daily News reports:

The famed rapper is one of the new inductees to the Songwriters Hall of Fame, making her the first female hip hop artist to receive the honor.

“I want to CONGRATULATE all the AMAZING songwriters who have been inducted into the 2019 ‘Song Writers Hall of Fame,” Elliott tweeted Saturday morning. “also those who were nominated because their body of work is AMAZING… I AM SO HUMBLY GRATEFUL to now be inducted also.”

Elliott, 47, was one of six new inductees. She’s joined in this year’s class by John Prine, Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens), Dallas Austin, Jack Tempchin and Tom T. Hall.

Among Elliott’s achievements, she is the proud owner of four Grammy Awards along with other nods.

In 2017, Jay-Z became the first rapper inducted into the hall, with Jermaine Dupri coming after in 2018.

The Best Resources and Blogs for Female Consultants

Best Resources and Blogs for Female ConsultantsWhen we rounded up the best blogs for women law students a few months ago, we got some reader requests to do a list of favorite resources and blogs for consultants, as well! It’s been far too long since we’ve had a guest post from Road Warriorette, so we reached out — Sarah has been a frequent business traveler for over a decade, flying around the world week after week, and in the past she’s advised Corporette readers about how to plan your FIRST business trip, as well as how to be comfortable on a long flight. Thank you so much for guest posting, Sarah! – Kat.  

Hello Corporette readers! I’m Sarah, and I write about business travel for women over at Road Warriorette. I’ve been a fan of Corporette for a looooong time, and I’m thrilled Kat has asked me to put together a list of my favorite blogs for consultants and other frequent business travelers.

Before we start, let me be straight with you. There just aren’t a ton of blogs written for women business travelers, whether they’re on the road all the time or only once in a while. That’s why I started Road Warriorette almost ten years ago! What I’ve put together below are helpful resources from a variety of perspectives, which have combined to make my life on the road easier. I hope they help you too!

Corporette

Clearly, if you’re reading this you understand how amazing Corporette is. When I first started traveling for work I would wear black pants and a black blouse and call it a day. Kat shared so many ideas about combining more colors and patterns, helping me create a travel wardrobe that was fun as well as functional.

Go Jane Go

Go Jane Go is a company that bills itself as “aligning industry with the woman business traveler,” and as part of that they have a great collection of essays about consultant and frequent traveler life. They also have a fairly active Facebook group where you can ask questions that only other traveling ladies can answer.

Best Resources and Blogs for Female Consultants

Travel Fashion Girl

Travel Fashion Girl has packing lists for all kinds of travel. Their business travel section is pretty thorough, and many of their general tips are applicable to business travelers as well.

Lady Light Travel

Lady Light Travel was a blog after my own heart. She wrote about traveling the world with a single carry on, with tips on toiletries, outfits, and more. Unfortunately she stopped writing last year, but her blog has plenty of great information and suggestions for frequent travelers.

Outfit Posts

Outfit Posts: The name of the blog says it all — most of her posts are literally pictures of her outfit for the day. As part of her job she is on the road a lot and has some great packing lists and suggestions for capsule wardrobes.

RoadWarrior.Blog

RoadWarrior.Blog is written by a couple of guys, and their take on packing is decidedly different from mine. However, they write some really interesting and helpful things about productivity and healthy travel, and I like their straightforward style.

The Points Guy

If you travel a lot, I highly recommend maximizing your points via strategic credit card use. The Points Guy can show you how to do it whether you want to travel for free or get cash back. The site also has tons of reviews of different flights, airlines, and individual airplanes, which I find especially helpful when planning international travel.

Random Articles For Female Consultants and Business Travelers

There are plenty of articles on regular career blogs that talk about business travel, and a couple I’ve really enjoyed are Road Warriors: The Ups and Downs of Jetsetting for a Job from The Everygirl and How to Manage Frequent Business Trips from FairyGodBoss.

Of course, I can’t leave without plugging Road Warriorette. I write about business travel from a woman’s perspective, primarily focused on packing, etiquette, and making travel easier for newbies.

While there aren’t many comprehensive sites designed just for frequent female business travelers, there are plenty of resources that offer helpful tips and advice. Happy travels!

Readers, what are your favorite blogs and resources for female consultants and business travelers? How often do you travel for business?

Simone Biles Now Tied for Most Decorated Female Gymnast Ever After Winning a Fourth Gold at Worlds

(DOHA, Qatar) — Simone Biles returned to training last November wondering if she could ever return to the form that made her an Olympic champion.

She doesn’t wonder anymore. Neither does anyone else.

The American star capped a remarkable 2018 world gymnastics championships by claiming gold on floor exercise and bronze on balance beam during event finals Saturday, giving her six medals for the meet and 20 overall in the world championships, tied with Russia’s Svetlana Khorkina for the most by a female gymnast.

“I think there’s a lot to be proud, but I’m most proud of that I’m here, I made all the event finals, medaled in all of the events and I survived,” Biles said.

Something that wasn’t a guarantee when the meet began. Biles spent the night before qualifying in the hospital dealing with pain from a kidney stone. The stone was too big to pass and she couldn’t take prescription pain medication because of doping regulations, forcing her to simply deal with it.

Biles did more than deal with it. She dominated. Just like always.

The 21-year-old will head home to Houston with gold medals from the team final, the all-around final, floor and vault as well as silver on uneven bars and bronze on beam. She became the first woman to earn a medal on all four events since Yelena Shushunova did it for the Soviet Union in 1987.

Biles believes it’s just the beginning. She’ll visit with doctors to treat the kidney stone, go on a short vacation and then point toward 2019.

“Hopefully I feel more confident next year going into all of the events,” she said. “We’ll see about upgrades. I’m not sure. We’ll see.”

Biles finished a busy 10 days by drilling her floor routine, which includes intricate tumbling runs that are as difficult as anything done by the men these days. Though she stepped out of bounds on her third pass, her score of 14.933 was a full point better than that of teammate Morgan Hurd, who earned her third medal of the meet by finishing with silver. Japan’s Mai Murakami took third.

Biles wasn’t quite as crisp on beam, an event that she’s struggled with recently. She wobbled during qualifying and fell off during the all-around finals. Though she managed to stay on during event finals, she found herself off balance on multiple occasions. Her score of 13.6 held up for bronze behind China’s Liu Tingting and Canada’s Ana Padurariu.

While allowing it wasn’t her best, Biles took to Twitter in between beam and floor exercise to chastise those who criticized her for not winning gold. It’s a move she felt was necessary.

“I think it’s upsetting to me whenever I see all the tweets after I do performances of how disappointed they are in me,” Biles said. “It’s not fair because they can’t set expectations on me. I have to set them for myself.”

And no one’s expectations are higher. Biles took herself to task after the all-around, unhappy with a series of uncharacteristic mistakes. She vowed to redeem herself in the event finals and responded by reaching the podium on each event.

“I’m really happy to be done,” Biles said. “Proud of my performances here. I wish some of them would have been better but I’m really proud of the outcome.”

So was Hurd, who won a team gold, bronze in the all-around and silver on floor, validating her breakthrough performance at the 2017 world championships when she became an unlikely champion.

“Oh, I wanted it so badly,” Hurd said. “Now I’ve got a full set.”

Five-time U.S. champion and two-time Olympian Sam Mikulak picked up the first world championship medal of his career when he finished third in the high bar final behind Epke Zonderland of the Netherlands and Japan’s Kohei Uchimura, who boosted his career medal at worlds to 21.

Mikulak will settle with having just one for now.

“I made a statement to the world that Sam isn’t some washed-out gymnast that’s holding on,” the 26-year-old Mikulak said. “He’s here to play and he’s here to get medals.”

North Korea’s Ri Se Gwang picked up his third world title on vault. Men’s all-around champion Artur Dalaloyan earned silver, with Japan’s Kenzo Shirai taking bronze. China’s Zou Jingyuan captured gold on parallel bars with a score of 16.433 — the highest on any apparatus by a man during the meet — while Oleg Verniaiev took silver and Dalaloyan bronze.

‘Suspiria’ is Essential Horror About Ruthless Female Power

Alessio Bolzoni/Amazon Studios

Last year, in the bowels of an abandoned Italian cinema, some lucky forager happened upon a 35mm print of Dario Argento’s 1977 Suspiria that had been left untouched since the late ‘70s. It was an eerie case of life imitating art; in the film’s finale, the burgeoning ballerina heroine is roving the underbelly corridors of her dance studio when she too finds something uncanny and bewitching.

The best compliment I can pay to Luca Guadagnino’s remake is that it could credibly pass as having been, like its antecedent, dug up out of a basement—or, more aptly, exhumed from the tombs of ‘70s arthouse horror. It is remarkably difficult, in 2018, to produce something anew that feels authentic to another era. Yet this is what Guadagnino has accomplished: a dark fantasy shimmering with the dusty luster of the past.

Long and digressive (Argento’s uncut print spanned six reels; Guadagnino’s would be pushing double digits), the new Suspiria takes the same general story—the dancers, the occult—and lends it a cool austerity. Like the original, the new Suspiria is a fable. Yet screenwriter David Kajganich and Guadagnino mutate the survival story into something spasmodic and at times inscrutable. They envision a mythic universe as expansive as that of Pan’s Labyrinth or The Shining (and poised to inspire just as many fan theories), but they make its defining attribute a fierce femininity. Here, women are strong, capable and powerful, sometimes ruthlessly so. Arriving one year after Me Too boomed through Hollywood, Suspiria holds a whispered decree: believe women. But also: don’t underestimate them.

Maya Gabeira Breaks GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ For The Largest Wave Surfed Unlimited (Female)

WSL PRESS RELEASE

Nazaré, Portugal (Monday, October 1, 2018) – Today, the World Surf League (WSL) proudly announced that Maya Gabeira (BRA) has claimed the inaugural Women’s XXL Biggest Wave Award and set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Largest wave surfed unlimited (female).

The 31-year old from Rio de Janeiro, Brasil successfully surfed a wave measuring 68 feet / 20.72 metres from trough to crest at the infamous big-wave break known as Praia do Norte in Nazaré, Portugal on January 18, 2018.

“To set the world record has been a dream of mine for many years,” said Gabeira. “But of course, after the accident in Nazaré 2013, it felt like a very distant dream. It took a lot of work to have a season like last year, to be 100% again, and to complete it with a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title is quite special.”

Gabeira’s incredible feat did not come without its challenges. In 2013, Gabeira suffered a serious injury at Nazaré, but her unwavering determination brought her back to the monstrous and dangerous wave to not only surf again, but set the women’s world record.

“It’s been quite a journey, but I can honestly say that in 2013 when I first came to Nazaré my life changed like never before,” continued Gabeira. “Of course, there was an accident, injuries and so on, but also I moved to Nazaré to be closer to the wave. I dedicated most of my time to the spot and I had years to focus on improving, on safety and on being around the best people to get where I wanted to be. That time was priceless, it taught me a lot and slowly I got back to my feet. Back to surfing at 100% and in a spot that I honestly consider the biggest and most challenging wave I ever surfed.”

“Congratulations to Maya Gabeira for her outstanding achievement,” said Sophie Goldschmidt, WSL CEO. “Maya exemplifies the courage, commitment, and progression of female athletes around the world and we are so proud to celebrate her today as the new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title holder for the Largest wave surfed unlimited (female).”

The achievement was announced at a special ceremony upon the grounds of the famous lighthouse that stands watch over the waves of Praia do Norte. An official Adjudicator of GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS presented Gabeira with a certificate declaring her as the current record holder for the Largest wave surfed unlimited (female).

Contenders for the women’s world record dated back through surfing history, but the frontrunners featured two-time Big Wave Tour Champion Paige Alms, big wave standouts Justine Dupont, Keala Kennelly, Andrea Moller, and surfing icon Bethany Hamilton.

Normally, the WSL’s Big Wave Awards declare the biggest and best waves of the year during the annual Big Wave Awards show in April.  As this was a special determination of the largest wave ridden to date – spanning the history of the sport – it was awarded in a unique setting at the start of the winter big wave season, and will now set the bar in the category going forward. The 2019 Big Wave Awards in April will now award two new categories: Women’s XXL Biggest Wave Award (where jet skis maybe be used) and the Women’s Biggest Paddle Award (wave caught with only arm power).
