From run-ins with famous friends to getting pulled over by the cops, this is Riverdale actress Cami Mendes’ New York Fashion Week video diary. 

 A Monday off from work isn’t typical for actress Camila Mendes—at least not in September. “We shoot #Riverdale nine months out of the year,” she tells ELLE.com. But when the actress who plays Manhattan fashionista Veronica Lodge was presented with the opportunity to attend her first ever New York Fashion Week, Mendes made it work. If only for two days, she was heading to NYC to take in the shows.

First up? Prabal Gurung. Excited for her “Kendall Jenner moment,” the actress went with a red turtleneck and pink trousers, making the most of her debut. 

On day two, she managed to squeeze in an appearance at a 12:00 p.m. Zimmermann show, before jetting off to the airport to make her 4 p.m. flight back to Vancouver—and back to the “no red lipstick rule” her character Veronica Lodge abides by.

Zac Posen Presents Spring — With a Little Help From Friends

Like lots of designers, Zac Posen wears many hats. In fact, he says it shakes out to 16 collections a year. He designs for Brooks Brothers; recently updated the uniforms at Delta Air Lines; released a cookbook; judges on “Project Runway,” and released a documentary. But it was his namesake label that started it all.
To present that collection for spring 2019, Posen is once again forgoing a traditional runway show — something he has done for several seasons — in favor of images and a film. The difference this season is that the film has a more narrative- and character-driven feeling. Gia Coppola shot the piece, with Maya Thurman Hawke as muse. To Posen, Hawke was more than just a subject — both she and Coppola are close personal friends, and Hawke, who was looped in and confirmed while he was still designing the collection, helped to influence his designs for the season. So spring 2019 was a family affair.
“The original Zac girl is a creative free spirit. When I think of my early muses, this collection has almost come full circle to that idea. It’s not grande dame, or overt glamour, there is a new side to it,” he

Friends is officially the most streamed TV show in the UK

Better luck next time, Stranger Things.

Though Ross and Rachel may (or may not have been) on a break, one thing’s for certain: the UK’s love for Friends has never waned. Ever since the noughties sitcom hit Netflix, it’s easier than ever to just fall down a rabbit hole on the weekend and stream hours of the gang’s antics – and well, a new survey has noticed. According to its results, Friends is actually the most streamed show in the UK – beating other in demand Netflix series like Stranger Things and The Crown.

Now, Netflix famously never releases its streaming data but Ofcom stepped in, did the groundwork and released a Media Nations Report. They surveyed 2,500 viewers about their viewing habits on services including Netflix, Amazon and NOW TV, ranking the most watched shows accordingly.

It seems like the newer kids on the block still have a lot to learn from Friends, as fourth fifths of those queried (1985 people) said they had streamed the show on Netflix. In contrast, the next most popular show Amazon’s The Grand Tour captured just under half of the audience with 911. Clearly, people can’t get enough of the American series and to be honest after reading those stats, it’s probably prime for that Friends reunion movie people keep hinting at. I mean, we already know what Monica’s apartment from Friends would look like now – we might as well keep the ball rolling.

A few Netflix originals managed to work their way onto the chart, with The Crown and Stranger Things neck and neck in third and fourth place respectively. It seems we’re not the only ones who have fallen for Cillian Murphy’s baby blues though as Peaky Blinders slid comfortably into fifth place. Some of our personal favourites, Brooklyn Nine Nine (which thankfully has been renewed) and The Good Place, also snapped up spots in the top ten.

The full ranking of shows is below, if you’re keen to see if your favourite made the cut:

2. The Grand Tour

3. The Crown

4. Stranger Things

6. Black Mirror

7. The Big Bang Theory

9. The Good Place

10. Vikings

14. Designated Survivor

15. Grey’s Anatomy

16. Breaking Bad

17. Homeland

18. Paw Patrol

19. Riverdale

20. Peppa Pig

As you can see above, shows that are either on Netflix or are bonafide Netflix originals tended to dominate the chart and their global takeover certainly doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. It’ll be interesting though to see what happens early next year when Disney releases its own competitor streaming service Disney Life.

Just imagine: every single Disney animated film, Marvel feature and Star Wars film ever all in one place. We’re saving up our annual leave for the binge fest to end all binge fests once it drops.

The Effect Close Friends Have on Your Life (And: How to Choose Your Friends)

There’s a famous quote about how you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. As I get older, I definitely have noticed this, both in good and bad ways. From a simple fashion perspective, if all your friends are buying $ 1,500 purses, you feel like you’re the thrifty one if your bag is only $ 500. Meanwhile, if your friends are all using bags they paid $ 20 for at Target a few years ago, spending more than $ 100 on a bag feels insane. From a business/career perspective, people whose friends are all coming up with ideas for businesses seem much more inclined to go out and pitch VCs and angel investors and then immediately spend the 5, 6, or 7 figures they get, making tons of hires and leasing office space. On the flip side, if all your friends are choosing to stay home to raise their kids, that choice starts to look much more realistic and doable. This even makes a difference from a health perspective — if your closest friends eat and drink to excess, odds are really high that you will as well. (There was even a study about how your friends and family influence your weight!)the effect close friends have on your life - and how to choose friends wisely

So, while we’ve talked before about how to make friends as an adult, and how to make time for friends when you work a lot, we haven’t really discussed this. If friends = destiny, how do you assess the current people you’re spending time with, and possibly find new people to add to your mix? How do you do all this when you’re not totally sure what you want your destiny to BE? For example, at 27, my answer to “Where I want to be at age 37?” would have been totally different than my answer to that question at age 32 or 37 (or to the question, at a later age, “Where would it have been really great to be at 37?”). (Of course, this is getting into our question from almost 5 years ago now: where do you see yourself in 5 years? I’m still trying to figure out how we should update that one — I’ve opened comments on it again if anyone wants to update their original comment now!)

In terms of choosing friends wisely, I don’t know what the answers are, and I’m curious to hear what you guys think. For my $ .02 I think it comes down to recognizing which friends are bad influences, and purposely seeking out friends that are better influences — looking for friends at your gym or workout class if you’re health-focused, pushing yourself to attend Meetups or talks on things you’d like to have in your life in a perfect world. If you’re dating, of course, choosing your partner is a huge factor here — go in with your eyes as open as possible to the effect she or he will have on your future life.

Let’s hear from you guys – what effect do you think close friends have on your life? How do you surround yourself with people who will propel you forward and challenge you in great ways? Do you lurch forward on your own, in activities that sound interesting to you, and then aggressively try to make friends while there? Do you try to sway your friends to come with you? For friends whom you absolutely love but who aren’t necessarily where you want to be (e.g., a SAHM friend, a bad-influence happy-hour friend, etc.), how do you STAY friends while also finding new ones?

Porsha Williams Is Rocking A Black Outfit & Her Pink Hair At A Friend’s Baby Shower – There’s No Sign Of A Baby Bump

Porsha Williams attended one of her BFF’s baby shower and congratulated the future mom. She also documented the party on her social media account, and she let her fans know she was with her boo at the party.

Porsha wore an all-black outfit, and we have to admit that there’s no sign of a baby bump.

She became surrounded with all these pregnancy rumors after she posted on Instagram that she’s got baby fever and her fans went crazy with excitement saying that she is definitely pregnant.

They have been searching for all kinds of signs that would point out the fact that she’s expecting a child, but it may not be the case.

‘#SWIPE💙👶🏽Congratulations baby cuz @ladytford I can’t wait to meet your prince!! 🎉💙 #BabySeason #Blessings #BabyShower fam,’ Porsha captioned her post which includes lots of pics from the baby shower.

‘HEY PORSHA! Huge fan of yours and I would love to be of service to you when you come to my hometown, Jackson, MS.. please check out my work and hopefully we will be in touch. ❤’ one of her fans said in the comments section.

‘Needless to say, we are competitive af! 😂 I & bae refuse to lose… BUT we lost that day lol #CoupleBabyShowerGames @ladytford 👶🏽💙 #ImSoAggressive’ – this is how Porsha captioned another post in which she’s playing a game at the baby shower with her BF.

Michelle Wolf as Kirstjen Nielsen Compares ICE to ISIS, Freaks Out ‘Fox & Friends’

Netflix/screengrab

“Are you worried about your country?” the voiceover begins. “Do you feel like your land is being invaded by foreign intruders who want to change your culture?” A series of serious-looking agents look into the camera and say what “ICE is” to them.

For the first minute or so, you could be forgiven for thinking the pitch is a real, if heavy-handed, public service announcement for ICE. Then comedian Michelle Wolf appears as Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in an explosion of flames.

“It’s popular nowadays to say ICE is bad,” Wolf says in a new sketch for her Netflix show The Break. “But there’s no better representation of American values right now than ICE is.” As an “equal opportunity employer,” she says the organization accepts “all levels of experience and education, from low to very low, and actively welcome those with diagnosed anger issues.”

Spots to see in NY for “Friends” lovers

ADVERTISEMENT


So no one told life was gonna be this way? Nope, us neither. Especially when we learned that Friends was finally set to come to an end back in 2004. The show first aired nearly 25 years ago but we still can’t help but scream “PIVOT!” and dream of the Joey special whenever we get the chance. So if you’re heading to New York, don’t forget to add these Friends spots to your itinerary.

The Pulitzer Fountain

There is no better place to start than at the beginning is there? So here we are. The opening credits would be nothing without that iconic fountain scene that made so many of us want to grab our friends and get dancing. But don’t hold your breath. The actual fountain they used is in a studio in California. However, it was designed off this very fountain. Move out kiddos – we’re coming for our turn, and you’re in the splash zone.

The Plaza Hotel

This hotel must be one of the most famous buildings in the world thanks to its many movie and TV show appearances. However, we aren’t here to talk about the contenders; we want the main man. The Plaza Hotel is where Chandler and Monica toast to their engagement, so why not take a visit to the very walls where the famous scenes were shot? If you really want to push the boat out, you could even book a night or two to take in the atmosphere fully.

The apartment

Although the actual filming inside may have taken place on the other side of the country, the apartment building was shot loud and proud in New York. Now you too can take in the sights as you track down the very apartment building that made it all happen. Thankfully, the neighbors are all fully dressed meaning you can take in the view in peace. After all, you couldn’t go to New York and not see the Friends apartment, could you?

The American Museum of Natural History

Surely Friends must have used a real museum for Ross? Nope, you’re out of luck again. Although the New York Museum of Prehistoric History may not exist, there is the perfect replacement when it comes to getting all your dino needs. The museum has a huge prehistoric section on offer, and you can enjoy it all in peace and quiet without the deafening screams of a moist maker in the background. Perfect.

Grab a coffee

Sadly, beneath the apartment blocks lays a restaurant. And the commemorative Central Perk that popped up for the show’s 20th anniversary has since disappeared. However, New Yorkers are known for their love of coffee, and there are so many coffee shops on offer all around the city. Why not spice it up and take one to go so you can enjoy the views of Central Park with your beverage? This way you can have the best of both worlds. We can almost taste it now!

Friends has been, always was, and always will be one of the best shows in existence. Period. And as much as they try and tell us it’s over, we will keep bringing the legendary show back to life! So next time you take a trip to the Big Apple don’t forget all these awesome spots for any Friends lovers out there.

#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.

Niall’s friends ‘can’t get hold of him’ after his shock Love Island exit

Here’s what we know so far…

Love Island series 4 is only in its second week, and we’re already obsessed.

Why did Kendall have to be the first to go? Are Danni and Jack in it for the long haul? And, will Alex find love?

There are so many questions already, and we are deeply invested.

This week has been dominated however by the shock departure of one of the public’s top favourite Islanders, 23-year-old Niall Aslam, with his unexpected exit breaking the hearts of Love Island viewers, and his ‘rainbow fish’, Georgia.

‘Niall has left the villa for personal reason,’ ITV announced in a statement, something that fellow islander Alex later confirmed to the group.

‘For personal reasons unfortunately Niall can’t continue or come back to the villa,’ Alex announced to the islanders. ‘I’m obviously sad that Niall’s left the villa. We got on really, really well. He’s such a great guy. And I look forward to catching up with him and having some fun with him outside.’

While ITV is staying tight-lipped about the 23-year-old construction worker’s departure from the show, it has been reported by the Mirror Online, that the decision was down to health reasons, made jointly by Niall and the Love Island bosses.

Causing further concern, The Sun Online reported that Niall’s friends were unable to get hold of him after his departure, with one friend reportedly telling the publication, ‘We don’t know what’s gone on and we haven’t spoken to him so we’re in the dark.’

‘We are as shocked as everyone else is,’ another reportedly added. It’s a shame as he was doing really well and taking the show by storm.’

‘Obviously I was coupled up with him so obviously I came closer to him than most people in here,’ his Love Island other half Georgia explained of Niall after his exit. ‘But it wasn’t just that. He was actually my friend, my buddy.’

Niall has yet to speak out about his exit.

We’re sending him our thoughts.

SPECIAL DISCOUNT UPDATE:

I’ve lost friends because of my postpartum depression

by

Becky Vieira

posted in Life

I’ve lost friends since my son was born. We didn’t grow apart. It’s not something I’m imagining. The relationships are simply no longer there.

Sure, I expected things to change. That I’d have less time to talk or see people as I adjusted to motherhood. But I never thought anyone would exit my life.

Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened after I was diagnosed with postpartum depression.

I stopped worrying about maintaining friendships and focused on maintaining my will to live. It sounds dramatic — trust me, I know — but that’s what happened. I was depressed. Contemplating leaving my husband and newborn child. Thinking about ending my life. Things were dark for me.

I ignored calls and texts. Begged off requests to visit. Which led me to being even more depressed, convinced my friends hated me. Finally I got help. Medication and therapy. Began to see a semblance of my old life once again.

Mom with PPD lays on floor

My friends were wonderful. Supportive and understanding. Never pushed. 

Then I had a relapse and disappeared. Again. I eventually felt stronger and reached out. Reconnected. But it continued to happen. Three, four, now five times.

I wish I could say that I’ve reconnected with all my friends each time. But unfortunately that’s no longer the case. Every time I come up for air I seem to have lost another friend. It breaks my heart. But I understand.

Maintaining a friendship with someone who’s fighting a mental illness isn’t easy. I’m present. Gone. I stop responding to calls, texts and emails. Can’t be relied upon for anything. Fall into the darkness with no way to know when I’ll be back again. If ever.

When I’m able to return to the light I expect life to pick up where I left off. But life for everyone else moves on. Unfortunately, that’s also meant that some people have moved on and away from me.

My son is now 20 months-old, and I know it’s hard to understand how I “still” have PPD. People don’t know that this awful beast can continue to control me.

To all my lost friends, please know this: When I said I couldn’t have visitors because I had a cold, that wasn’t entirely true. I hadn’t slept for 26 hours and threw everything from my linen closet onto the floor in a rage when I couldn’t find something.

When I missed your birthday party it wasn’t because my son was teething. I’d been hysterically crying for so long that my eyes were swollen shut.

And I didn’t ignore your text. I read it. Tried to reply so many times but my clouded mind couldn’t put words together. The longer I waited the more my anxiety grew. Until I deleted it out of fear that you’d hate me. A self-fulfilling prophecy, it turns out.

Mother and toddler son next to statue at zoo

I understand that being my friend is tough. I just want you to know why I fall off the radar. And help you understand what’s going on with me. I’m sure you wonder why I don’t simply tell you when it happens. Because I told you when I was diagnosed. Why have I stopped talking or hiding again?

My mind lies to me. It takes everything in me just to get out of bed and care for my son. I value you and our friendship. But somedays I just can’t do it. 

In this case, the cliche is true. It’s not you… it’s me.

If you think you may be suffering from postpartum depression, don’t wonder. Speak up. Talk to you doctor, partner, family and friends. If you are scared or worried about the stigma (I get it… we shouldn’t be concerned about that but of course we often are) and would rather talk to someone outside of your circle, you can call Postpartum Support International at 1.800.944.4773. If you just need a fellow mom to validate you and listen to your fears, find me on Instagram and reach out.

Anxious, overwhelmed, unhappy, or scared by how you feel? If you’re struggling emotionally, you could be depressed. Take this 10-question quiz to find out.

Did you lose friendships after your children were born? If you had PPD do you think that played a role?

Meghan Markle basically just called Kate Middleton one of her best friends

Despite the rumors you may have heard, Meghan Markle, the newly minted Duchess of Sussex, and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, get on famously. Not only are they friends, but a recent overture from Prince Harry’s new bride has led us to believe that their friendship is next-level, aka they are best friends.

According to People, Markle gifted her closest pals a custom-made “Kensington” bracelet ahead of the royal wedding. The Zofia Day piece, a simple gold chain anchored by a matching flattened disc, is also now available for purchase — meaning you can be one of Meghan Markle’s best friends, whether she likes it or not. It’s no diamond tiara, but we think the delicate chain is enough to make us commoners feel sufficiently royal (or, you know, royal-adjacent).

The bracelet was given to six of Meghan’s closest friends, including Benita Litt and Jessica Mulroney, whose respective children served as bridesmaids and page boys during the ceremony.

How and why I made all my new mom friends on social media

by

Becky Vieira

posted in Parenting

I’m still waiting for a book that actually talks about the real realities of new motherhood. How the early days of breastfeeding don’t just hurt, it feels like your nipple is being inserted into a pencil sharpener. How you won’t just be tired, you’ll feel as if you’re the subject of a sleep-deprivation study performed by sadists.

You’ll also be lonely. True, the population of your household will increase by at least one. Friends and family members will be visiting. Your partner may even be home on family leave. There will be more people around you than usual. Yet you’ll feel like you’re stranded atop a glacier in the middle of the ocean. Alone, with no one in sight.

There’s a cure. It’s mentioned, but I found its importance was glossed over. It should be written in bold and surrounded by flashing lights: moms need other moms friends. It’s imperative to our survival as new moms — no, just as moms at any stage. As humans, too.

Two moms each hold a baby on lap and smile at one another

And while befriending any person who is or has been responsible for raising a tiny human, one who’s doing so at roughly the same stage as you is even better. There is something magical about telling a friend, “My child screams like a howler monkey the second we step inside a restaurant,” and hearing “Same here!” in response.

Sounds pretty great, right? It is. However, making those mom friends is difficult. At least it was for me.

I moved in my third trimester and went on bedrest a week later. Sure, I tried to catch the eye of other pregnant women in the waiting room of my ob-gyn’s office or in birthing class. But my haphazard efforts weren’t successful. I gave birth friendless. 

Yes, my husband and parents were around. No, it’s not the same.

During the first few weeks of my son’s life I had insomnia. I was nursing a newborn every 2-3 hours and wide awake in between. Despite knowing that screen time would feed my inability to sleep, I logged on. Often.

I was desperate to do online what I couldn’t do in my daily life: make mom friends. 

Buoyed by exhaustion masquerading as confidence, I made a bold decision. Choosing full transparency and honesty I came clean on my Instagram account (my social media platform of choice). “I’m lonely,” I explained, in a photo caption. “Scared, with no idea what I’m doing as a new mom. And I need friends. Anyone interested?”

I was flooded with excitement and anticipation when my inbox began filling up. People commented. Introduced me to their friends. I started my journey, albeit a non-traditional one, toward making mom friends.

With a growing confidence I went on Facebook. The BabyCenter Community boards. I began commenting, engaging, responding. I soon had a new group of virtual mom friends. I was blown away by how many others were in my situation and were more than happy to connect.

Instagram became, and still is, my lifeline. I’ve also helped other moms connect there as well. I’ve been supported in the dark days of my PPD journey. I’ve had others celebrate with me, cry alongside of me. And never let me feel alone.

Due to geography I haven’t been able to convert all of my virtual friends into “in person” pals. Most are in other states, a few are even in other countries. Distance has never impacted our connection or friendship.

But I’ve been able to meet up with quite a few. Some even attended my son’s birthday party. It makes me smile when I’m asked how me met and I answer, “on Instagram.” It’s a sign of the times. Our connection, virtual. Yet somehow more real than many other relationships in my life that are face-to-face.

There’s something unspoken that two women share once they become moms. We know. We’ve felt it, thought it, laughed or cried about it. And are happy to be there for others as they experience it, too.

I could have been consumed by loneliness and fear. Yes, I had friends. Some were moms. But none were in the same trench at the same time I was. So I took what was at my disposal at the time — the internet — and made it work for me. 

Toddler boys play in water with backs to camera

I didn’t have many other options at 3 a.m. in the midst of a cluster feeding session. It’s not conventional. But it turned my life around.

My husband and I recently moved again. This time I went straight to social media to announce our plans and solicit friends in our new area. I actually had play dates arranged within days of our arrival. 

Sure, social media has its downfalls. But it’s also really good sometimes, too. Great, in fact. 

Just ask me and my mom friends.

Have you ever used social media to make friends? How did you meet your mom friends?

‘MAFS’ Recap: Ryan Ditches Jaclyn to Go Drink With His Friends

It’s scary to commit to forever – especially when you’re Married at First Sight. On the Tuesday, March 20, episode of the relationship reality show, the three couples struggled with what it meant to make their marriages the real deal. Some couples navigated the rocky waters with skill, while others were on the verge of sinking.

Shawniece and Jephte Make Up, Again

Jephte was so upset at the prospect of having to surrender his phone to Shawniece that he walked out. She refused to chase him. After getting some (good) advice from his friend, he left her a few roses as an apology. Later, they discussed their five-year plan and surprisingly, seemed to be on the same page when it came to career, travel and kids.

Molly and Jonathan Still Haven’t had Sex

Molly was committed to showing Jonathan more physical affection. Instead, though, she gave him a gift card to his favorite story for his birthday. Apparently, that did the trick, though! No man has ever been more excited for a gift card.

Jaclyn and Ryan Hit a Rough Patch

During a boys’ night out with Jonathan, Jephte, and Pastor Cal, Ryan revealed that he and Jaclyn were feeling tension about her desire to live a “gypsy” lifestyle, which he wasn’t feeling. Pastor Cal reasoned that she might just want some extended vacations, but Ryan argued that she wanted to move abroad. Instead of going home to Jaclyn (who was sick), Ryan opted to leave the boys’ night to hang with a friend. Jaclyn later told the camera that Ryan was drunk and she was feeling a bit over the marriage.

They talked it out the next night. The conversation was civil, but she revealed that she was worried he wasn’t making space for her in his life. He asked for more slack and she asked him if he just didn’t want to be married at all. He insisted he wanted to be married and they hugged it out … for now.

Kirby’s Friends We Know and Hope to See in ‘Kirby Star Allies’

I know what you’re thinking. In Kirby Star Allies, by way of Kirby’s classic ability to inhale and assimilate enemies, isn’t every character your ally? Isn’t this even moreso the case with Kirby’s new ability to charm enemies by throwing hearts at them?

There’s a difference between Kirby allies and Kirby friends. Kirby friends are the equivalent of helpers — enemies you can turn into friends to use their abilities throughout the level. They’re tools. Kirby allies are moreso actual characters, intended for fans to fall in love with and pine for their cameos in new versions. Kinda like this!

Given the nature of Kirby games, the list of allies is quite similar to the list of villains. It’s normal for characters on either side of the line to swap allegiances for a short time. So you’ll forgive us if we include Meta Knight just because he’s awesome and cute. Nobody’s a full-time villain here.

The names are similarly … similar. With monikers from Lololo to Lalala to Dedede, you’d be forgiven for thinking the naming of Kirby characters fell to an executive’s three month-old child. Tsk, tsk. Nepotism.

We know there are some animal friend cameos planned from the likes of Nago, Pitch, and ChuChu. But which of these strings of repeated syllables do we hope to see in Kirby Star Allies? For that we’ll have to reach back across the franchise for our favourites.


Kirby Star Allies Meta Knight

Meta Knight

Friend or foe? You never really know. Meta Knight, leader of the meta knights (because that’s so meta), looks very much like an armoured version of Kirby. His motivations have always been mysterious, and despite breaking his mask, we’ve never seen his face.

Even when Meta Knight is fighting against Kirby though, you have to respect him. He’s nothing if not honourable, and will offer Kirby a sword to make the fight fair.

We hope to see more of this character both because he’s a fan favourite, and because we want to know more about him. His mystery is part of his charm, but throughout the series each appearance has revealed something new.

In Meta Knightmare Ultra we learned he’s on a quest to become the greatest warrior in the galaxy. In Revenge of the Meta Knight we learned he hates laziness. And in the anime, we learn that Meta Knight does take into account the greater good, which is ultimately his reason for helping Kirby.


Kirby Star Allies Chef Kawasaki

Chef Kawasaki

Racking up what must be the most appearances in the Kirby series (yes, other than Kirby, you pedantic scoundrel) is Chef Kawasaki, another villain-turned-friend.

Kawasaki is the perfect compliment to Kirby. On one hand, we have a hero who can’t stop eating. On the other, we have an ally who can’t stop cooking. Boom.

Kawasaki is also the source of one of Kirby’s most powerful abilities: Cook.

Don’t let the understated name fool you. This effectively clears the entire screen of enemies other than bosses. Due to its power, this is one of the few Copy Abilities that only gives you one use.

Kirby Star Allies has a lot of powerups just floating around mid-level, so we’re not sure the game has much use for a character that would dole out tasty treats for Kirby’s benefit. The level design itself is already quite liberally sprinkled with things for Kirby to eat.

Even if we don’t see Chef Kawasaki, it’d be great to see some continuation of the robotisation of characters, a la Mecha Kawasaki.


Kirby Star Allies Adeleine

Adeleine

The child painter who could bring her creations to life, we don’t just hope to see a Kirby Star Allies Adeleine, we hope to see more Adeleine in general.

She can be sweet and paint into reality items or creatures to help Kirby. But the last time we saw her she was possessed by Dark Matter, turning on Kirby. Adeleine as an enemy is extremely dangerous, bringing a conga line of past bosses into existence with a flick of her brush.

This is an idea that could use a lot more exploring, both thematically and in terms of gameplay. If Drawn to Life can animate whatever pixel art abominations we put together, imagine the same idea with the backing of Nintendo.

Whether or not we’re controlling her, and whether or not she’s on our side, it’s a super cool ability that deserves more screen time.


Kirby Star Allies Angie

Angie

There’s a lot of potential for newer characters from Kirby’s Epic Yarn to make a jump into more traditional 3D cartoon graphics, and we think a great candidate would be Angie. Even moreso than Prince Fluff.

This smiley angel would carry you to your teammate whenever you wished, and would save you from fatal falls — at the cost of a few beads. It’s a similar role to Lakitu in Mario Kart.

We haven’t seen any of Angie so far in the promotional material, and we probably would have if she played a major “saving Kirby’s bacon” kind of role. But this is a series that loves cameos. Anything’s possible.

We could see all or none of the above allies. But we are slowly building a list of all the friends (and their abilities) for you to assimilate in Kirby Star Allies. Check it out here.

Study Shows Black People Support Family, Friends More Than Other Groups

African Americans do not just care about their finances, they also care about the communities they live in—and the people they live around.

For African Americans, community begins with friends and family—and sometimes money. A new survey reveals that a whopping 80% of African Americans agree that community involvement is important compared to only 66% of whites.

“Throughout history, African Americans have had to rely on each other, oftentimes to survive,” said Evan Taylor, African American market director, MassMutual, in a press release. “Therefore it is not surprising that helping each other lies at the heart of their beliefs about community and finances. Although no strangers to tough economic times, sacrificing to support each other, particularly family and friends, is a huge part of black culture and community.”

Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. said it conducted the nationwide survey to explore the intersection of community involvement and financial well-being.

While the survey reveals that both blacks and whites are equally anxious about their current financial well-being, the differentiating factor are the views African Americans have toward financially supporting others. In spite of these financial concerns, 90% believe it is important to look out for one another. More than 60% have supported someone else in times of financial need and almost a third have been supported by someone else.

“What this shows is what people care about and the philanthropic role of finances in their lives,” said Taylor. “There is significant opportunity to adopt new attitudes, habits, and actions to strengthen personal financial health as a way to build what can be shared with the communities most important to them.”

Participants ranked family, friends, and schools as their top three when asked to define communities. Religion, children, professional networks, and towns/city or region are also important, in that order.

“This indicates there is a need for African Americans to open up dialogue with each other and their communities about the steps necessary to build strong financial foundations and create generational wealth that can help the larger community in the long-term,” Taylor added.

The survey also reveals that only 32% of African Americans share information about their finances with other people compared to 55% of whites.

12 Bridesmaid Dresses Your Friends Will Actually Wear Again

Last Saturday night, a moment of pure elation came over me. My best friend arrived for dinner wearing an oversize gray turtleneck layered over a silky silver maxi dress and sneakers. I applauded her impeccably chic outfit and inquired in that red carpet way, “Darling, who are you wearing?” Her answer brought as much pleasure to me as it did to her: “Judith, it’s my bridesmaid dress—from your wedding!”

Coco Rocha told her friends about pregnancy on social media

OHMYGOSSIP — Coco Rocha revealed her pregnancy to her friends for the first time on social media.
The 29-year-old model announced she was expecting her second child with her artist husband James Conran on Instagram last week to the delight of her fans and she has now revealed she even told some of her nearest and dearest the same way.
She told the New York Post’s Page Six column: “It is easier announcing my pregnancy on social media instead of calling people – but on the other hand some friends and family members want to make sure you call them and get that respect of being called first. There are haters out there, so you either shut them down or remove them from out of your life.”
Coco announced her pregnancy by posting a video on Instagram of herself standing in a nursery wearing a full-length, fitted, black evening dress and holding her stomach and standing next to her daughter Ioni Conran.
Two-year-old Ioni then jumps out from behind her and shouts: “Surprise! There’s a baby in mummy’s tummy!”
Coco captioned the video: “Your attention please! @ioniconran has a very important announcement to make!! #babyconran2. (sic)”
Coco had recently admitted she is a lot more selective about the modelling jobs she takes on now she is a mother.
She said: “Now that I’m a mom, when it comes to campaigns and editorials, I look at the bigger story. I ask if that’s a good fit for the Coco brand, should I work with every editorial that comes my way, every brand. It’s about pinpointing what’s good … I didn’t want to be consumed by my career. Now we have a baby girl and that’s what grounds me. I travel as much as I can with my family. My hair and make-up team are people that I absolutely love, who make me laugh. We’re not curing cancer. We’re going to do our jobs, doing it well, and realise we can have fun.”

Joe Jonas’ Friends & Family ‘Thrilled’ About Engagement to Sophie Turner: ‘She Was Just the One’

The Jonas Brothers — and wives.

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are engaged, and the singer’s family couldn’t be more welcoming to their new addition. “Everybody’s very, very happy for them and their family and friends are all thrilled. Everyone loves them together,” a source tells PEOPLE of the exciting news.

Adds the insider, “She’s young but is beyond her years and is crazy, crazy mature. He’s never been like this with a girl.”

“He was such a dater before her but their relationship was much different from the start. She was just the one for him.”

The couple shared the happy news with corresponding Instagram posts on Sunday. They each posted an image of the Game of Thrones star with her hand on top of the singer’s, showing off the stunning engagement ring against their black clothes.

“I said yes,” Turner, 21, captioned the photo. Meanwhile, the 28-year-old singer wrote, “She said yes.”

The DNCE frontman’s brothers, Nick and Kevin Jonas, were among the first to congratulate the couple.

“YES!!!” Nick wrote, while Kevin similarly chimed in with, “Yeah!!!!!!!”

Nick, 25, then shared the photo of the ring on his own Twitter page to further congratulate the couple. “Ahh! Congratulations to my brother… and sister in law to be on your engagement,” he said. “I love you both so much.”

Jonas and Turner have been dating since last November, after they were spotted acting cozy at a concert in the Netherlands — although the duo didn’t become Instagram official until January.

Since then, the couple has been going steady — they even share an adorable Siberian Husky puppy together named Porky Basquiat — and were recently snapped sharing some sweet PDA while out and about in Los Angeles.

RELATED VIDEO: Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner Are Engaged

As PEOPLE exclusively reported in June, a source close to the musician said that Sophie is “different from the other girls has dated.”

The couple have kept fairly tight-lipped about their romance. “I’m in a relationship, but it’s a very private relationship,” Turner told the U.K.’s Sunday Times in July.

“I very much isolated myself for a while and forgot what was fun. Going out with friends, going out to eat, not really having a care,” she told the publication. “And people I’ve met recently in my life have drawn me out of that.”

She continued, “It really helps you own those insecurities. The things I tortured myself about before, I can forget about.”

According to the British starlet, she’s in a much more positive place in life than she was before. “I’m happier than I’ve been in a very long time,” she said.

Turner also opened up to InStyle this past spring about her high-profile relationship. “I found it easier to date someone who understands the industry or is in that world,” she said.

Friends may have left our screens over 12 years ago but us millennials still want to be Rachel Green more than anything.

During the series, we all tried desperately to look like Jennifer Aniston, whether it involved wearing her 90s wardrobe, going for a neutral make up palette or following her varied hair trends, mimicking her look over the 10 seasons.

Too many of us opted for ‘The Rachel’ bob, before realising that it’s actually quite a hard look to pull off. We’ve all felt that hair regret.

While 12 years may have passed since Friends graced our screens, Jennifer Aniston just reignited our teenage dreams, revealing how to actually get Rachel Green’s look.

In a recent interview with Glamour, the 48-year-old actress revealed the lipstick brand and shade she used to perfect her trademark Rachel Green look over the series.

The answer? Paramount by MAC.

‘They’re always sort of regurgitating trends,’ she explained in the interview, offering, ‘How about MAC’s Paramount lipstick? It was a browny brick. I remember that was my go-to colour when I was doing Friends.’

So not only do we now know Rachel Green’s beauty secrets, we can also actually get our hands on it, with Paramount by MAC still sold across the world.

While discussing the revival of 90s looks, Jennifer Aniston also spoke about the 90s trend that she hopes won’t return – tiny sunglasses.

‘I just think they’re ridiculous,’ she explained. ‘I’m not a fan of those little tiny spectacles. I’m a fan of classic sunglasses. That was very ’90s, wasn’t it? When you would see those little tiny frames, those were brought back from the John Lennon days.’

We’ll just stick to the lipstick then.
