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.

Naomi Osaka Just Won the Women’s US Open. Here’s What She’s Getting

When Naomi Osaka beat out Serena Williams in a controversial match, she became the women’s singles champion at the U.S. Open Saturday night. However, she walked off the court with more than just the prestige that comes with winning the nation’s most famous tennis tournament. She also got a $ 3.8 million check.

The prize, taken from a $ 53 million pool designated for this year’s event, is a record-breaker. It’s “the largest payout in U.S. Open history,” according to a news release. And even though Williams may have lost the match, she also got a piece of it: As the women’s singles runner-up, Williams received $ 1.85 million. (Semifinalists Madison Keys and Anastasija Sevastova, who got knocked out of the tournament on Thursday, each earned $ 925,000.)

The cash is sure to boost Osaka’s already rising status in the tennis world. According to the Women’s Tennis Association, the 20-year-old has earned over $ 3.2 million in prize money in her career so far. She’s picking up major brand deals, too: Osaka has appeared in ads for Adidas and is sponsored by Japanese TV station WOWOW and Cup Noodles maker Nissin.

The U.S. Open is known for awarding men and women equal pay — but it wasn’t always like that. The first modern U.S. Open, in 1968, gave its male winner $ 14,000, while its female winner got just $ 6,000, according to the New York Times.

Billie Jean King, the namesake of the tennis center where the U.S. Open is now played, fought for prize parity in the ’70s. King, fed up with pocketing thousands of dollars less than her male colleagues, told organizers of the 1973 U.S. Open she wasn’t going to participate unless competitors of all genders got equal pay. King even persuaded Ban deodorant to make up the $ 55,000 difference in the awards.

“Everyone thinks women should be thrilled when we get crumbs. I want women to have the cake, the icing, the cherry on top, too,” King said in 2016.

Coincidentally, it was Williams’ sister, Venus, who pushed the team behind the Wimbledon tournament to finally give men and women equal prizes in 2007. Both of the Williams women joined King earlier this year in calling for the gender pay gap to be eliminated in all jobs.

DARPA artificial intelligence

If North Korea’s dear leader wakes up tomorrow, takes a crazy pill and decides to lob a nuclear missile at the U.S. mainland, there’s a good chance the military will be relying on artificial intelligence to protect us.

Reuters reported earlier this summer on the existence of a secretive military effort — actually, of multiple classified programs in various stages that are all focused on the development of AI-reliant systems to help us anticipate the launch of a missile, as well as to track launchers. In North Korea and, of course, beyond.

Ellen DeGeneres Invites Demi Lovato To Live In Her House After Getting Out Of Rehab, Claims Latest Report

It seems that Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi really want to help Demi Lovato. They reportedly offered her their beach house once she gets out of rehab, so she can continue to recover from her July 24 overdose. The news was reported by August issue of OK!

Both Ellen and Portia have been heartbroken to find out what happened to Demi and they want to do anything they can in order to help her.

‘It’s no exaggeration to say Ellen adores Demi. It breaks her heart to see the singer this way,’ a source told OK!, according to Hollywood Life.

‘Ellen told Demi that their beach house [in Santa Barbra, Calif.] is hers whenever she wants it. It’s close to nature and the perfect place to escape the pressures of Hollywood. They’ve also extended an invitation for her to stay at their L.A. place,’ the same insider continued.

Ellen and Portia are offering Demi more than a place to stay.

The same source continued and said that Portia wants to introduce Demi to equestrian therapy and that, ‘Both she and Ellen are determined to help Demi recover.’

After what happened to Demi all Hollywood was there for her and more celebs offered to support and help her.

As it was previously reported, Demi was found unconscious in her Hollywood Hills home back on July 24. After that, she was rushed to Cedars Sinai Hospital. She was later released on August 4.

We wish Demi all the best and the strength and power of will to recover.

Is ‘Living Single’ Getting A New Life?

With all the reboots of classic TV shows, it was inevitable that someone would get around to Living Single, the Fox sitcom starring Erika Alexander, Queen Latifah, Kim Coles, T.C. Carson and John Henson that ran from 1993-1998. It covered a group of friends living in a Brooklyn brownstone and is one of the sitcoms including Girlfriends, The Cosby Show, Everybody Loves Chris and Martin that resonated with Black audiences.

Some hints of a possible reworking of the show have dropped from its stars. Queen Latifah said the cast was ‘working on it’ and Kim Coles told ET something “reboot-ish” was on the way.

“[Queen Latifah’s] been talking, listen what [I’d] love to say is that I have been neither contacted nor contracted,” Coles said. “However, something is happening next month that I cannot talk about and that’s all I’m gonna say. That’s all I can say. The six of us together; a reboot-ish. That’s all I can say.”

Latifah on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live earlier this year:

But Erika Alexander dropped a big hint on her Instagram page, although she didn’t provide any details either:

It’s Still Britney, Bitch: Growing Up and Getting Old With Britney Spears

Kevin Mazur/BCU18/Getty

I was quite hungover when I ran into Britney Spears’ manager in line for an Auntie Anne’s pretzel at a rest stop in New Jersey.

I couldn’t tell if he, Larry Rudolph, her manager through most of her career, was as well. Or if he could tell that I was staring, following him to his car, and peering in the window to see if Ms. Spears was there, too. After all, we were traveling from and to the same places: from the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, where the pop star just performed three shows in her Piece of Me tour, to New York City, where she will perform two nights at Radio City Music Hall.

I am sure she will be great there, but not as great as she was in Atlantic City. Because, you see, I have come to the decision that the perfect place to see Britney Spears in the year 2018 is Atlantic City.

Exclusive: Kenya Moore Is Being ‘Punished’ for Getting Married and Hiding Her Husband Last Season, Offered a 90% Pay Cut to Return to ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’

There’s been a lot of back and forth regarding Kenya Moore’s return to ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ and we’re here to tell you exactly what’s going on.

A source close to production exclusively tells lovebscott.com:

“Bravo execs are demanding Kenya film her pregnancy journey with her husband and stay on a full ‘housewife’ filming schedule, but punish her by cutting her salary 90% and paying her as a ‘friend’. We’re told her husband has agreed to film this season only to support Kenya but they won’t give her a fair contract. All this because they want to publicly humiliate Kenya for not getting married on TV and her husband for not filming the entire season.”

A source close to Kenya says She’s in talks with 3 networks to do a spin-off now if Bravo refuses to pay her what she deserves.

On a related note — it’s been a few weeks since cameras began rolling for ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ season 11 and the cast shake-up isn’t quite delivering what producers were hoping for.

Sources exclusively tell lovebscott.com that in terms of storylines we can expect more of the same.

As expected, NeNe Leakes’ primary focus thus far is Gregg’s cancer battle. The ladies are rallying around NeNe offering their support and she just doesn’t have time for drama.

Cynthia Bailey is dating a new man.

Porsha Williams is also ‘dating’ a new man. Our sources say he’s a drug dealer from Detroit.

Kandi Burruss has the most going on, but as always it’s business related. She and Todd are opening a new OLG and she’s still doing shows with Xscape.

Eva Marcille is said to be showing up high for every event and the girls are over it. Now that she has given birth, she’s busy planning her upcoming wedding to Michael Sterling.

A few months ago we exclusively told you that two new ladies were testing to join the group. Our sources say Tanya actually declined to sign the newly-revised ‘standard contract’ so she’s no longer filming. Shamari DID sign the new contract and she’s still testing. It’s too early to tell how important Shamari will be to the season or if she’ll even make the cut at all.

That’s all the tea we have for now. Be sure to listen and subscribe to ‘The B. Scott Show’ podcast for more on your favorite celebrities!

British Columbia road trip: the art of getting lost

The best road trips have few set plans. They’re about the thrill of discovery, of not knowing what comes next. Forget detailed itineraries that look like a shopping list. As Kerouac said: “There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep rolling under the stars.” That’s my kind of road trip.

This is why I was so excited to find out about overlanding, defined as self-reliant adventure travel, usually in 4×4 vehicles, where the journey is as important as the highlights visited along the way, and the emphasis is on exploration and the freedom of the back roads. It’s been big in Africa for years, but a new company, Hastings Overland, has just launched the concept in western Canada.

Hugh Grant, 57, is finally getting married at 57 – to his Swedish girlfriend, 39

HUGH Grant is finally getting married at 57, we can reveal.

The actor, one of Britain’s best-known bachelors, is to tie the knot with Swedish girlfriend Anna Eberstein, 39, later this month.

There is an 18 year age gap between Hugh Grant and Anna Eberstein
Fame Flynet

Grant played commitment-shy characters in comedy films Four Weddings And A Funeral and About A Boy.

The leading privacy campaigner, who wants to gag Press freedom, has had a number of high-profile relationships in real life.

The engagement emerged in wedding banns posted at Kensington and Chelsea register office, near the couple’s £10million home in West London.

The official notice of the forthcoming marriage was on display on screens in the office at Chelsea Old Town Hall.

Their names appeared on a screen in the RBKC register office
Kevin Dunnett

A source said: “This is a day none of Hugh’s friends ever thought would come.

“He will soon be a pensioner and has finally become a family man.”

The star, who has three kids with Anna and two with former flame Tinglan Hong, has dated a string of women.

Best known was his 13-year romance with actress and model Liz Hurley.

They split in 2000, five years after he was caught with Hollywood hooker Divine Brown.

Grant also dated socialite Jemima Khan for three years before she reportedly dumped him in 2007.

The actor was romantically linked to film co-stars Martine McCutcheon and Drew Barrymore, as well as posh PR girl — and former squeeze of Prince Andrew — Caroline Stanbury.

The wedding is thought to be taking place later this month
Kevin Dunnett

But after meeting retail director Anna in a London bar six years ago, Grant finally appears to have settled down.

Until now, it was always thought he would be an eternal bachelor — or, as he once put it, “a sad, lonely old man”.

Grant, who plays disgraced MP Jeremy Thorpe in A Very English Scandal, which starts on BBC1 tonight, said two years ago marriage was “unromantic”.

He added: “Do I think humans are meant to be in 40-year-long faithful relationships? No, No, No.”

But best pal Hurley says fatherhood has changed him.

She said in March: “Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person.”

Amazon Prime Members Are Getting New Discounts at Whole Foods

Amazon is trying to give its Prime members more reasons to shop at Whole Foods.

The company announced on Wednesday that it’s rolling out additional deals and discounts for members of its subscription service at the high-end grocer, which it acquired last year. Prime members will get an extra 10% off the hundreds of items already on sale throughout the store, and the company will offer a deep discount every week on best-selling items.

“That’s significant,” Whole Foods CEO John Mackey told Fortune. “What we’ve seen is when we do special deals for Prime members, we get a lot of traffic.”

The company is launching the new benefits in Florida on Wednesday–$ 10 a pound off on halibut, $ 2 off organic strawberries, for example–and will roll out the program nationally this summer. Prime members will receive these discounts by scanning a Whole Foods app at checkout.

Amazon has been implementing perks for its Prime members in Whole Foods since it acquired the grocery chain over the summer. The moves are, in part, meant to integrate the two companies and further immerse shoppers within the Prime ecosystem. Amazon has launched free two-hour delivery from Whole Foods through its Prime Now service in 10 cities, has Amazon lockers for package pick up at Whole Foods, and is selling Amazon products in stores.

The price cuts are part of effort to help Whole Foods shake its reputation as an expensive place to shop. “We’re going to to become increasingly more price competitive,” says Mackey. “That’s something that’s been a long-time dream of mine. Our merger with Amazon is helping to make that a reality.”

Mackey notes that it’s only been nine months since the acquisition and says the two companies are just now beginning to innovate together.

3 Things You Should Do Before Getting Remarried

If you’ve found your soulmate after a failed marriage, you’re probably anxious to move forward and turn over a new leaf in your life.

With new love in the air, you may also be thinking of getting remarried. If you are, you could be wondering if there is anything you should do to wrap up your previous marital matters and protect yourself, your family, and your future spouse in case things don’t go as planned.

In this post, find out three important things you should do before saying “I do” for the second time.

1. Make Sure You Are Divorced

This suggestion may seem absurd, but attempting to get married without being properly divorced can happen, especially because the distinction between separation and divorce in the eyes of the law can be unclear.

A separation typically means a couple is not together anymore but it doesn’t mean they’re legally divorced (and ergo, eligible to remarry). So, if you’ve tied the knot before, you’ll need to ensure you are actually divorced—and not just separated—before exchanging your vows with another person.

One way to check if your divorce was legitimate is to go to a vital record’s office in your state and attempt to pull a divorce decree (sometimes called a divorce certificate).

Likewise, individuals who divorce in a foreign country may find they are not actually divorced in the United States. This is because the rules and requirements regarding marriage and divorce in other countries can differ greatly from laws in the States, and other conditions, such as evidence that both spouses had an opportunity to be heard before the divorce was granted, may be required before the divorce can be properly recognized.

Similarly, you may want to check with your local records office to make sure everything is in order.

Weddings can be expensive, so before you say yes to the dress (or suit), pick your cake, and finalize your guest list, you should confirm your legal relationship status.

2. Protect Yourself with a Prenuptial Agreement

A Prenuptial Agreement (often called a prenup) can seem ominous in that it addresses what you and your husband or wife will do after your relationship has ended, but this agreement is actually very useful and is recommended if you:

  • Have children with someone else
  • Want to protect anything that personally belongs to you or belonged to you before your relationship, such as personal property, inheritances, businesses, or investments
  • Want to avoid certain disagreements or misunderstandings about current and future financial responsibilities

When you plan to remarry, it is understandable to not want to be bogged down by the thought of your current relationship failing, but prenups can save a lot of headaches (and heartaches) for you and your husband or wife in case things don’t go as planned.

3. Update Your Estate Plans

Depending on when you originally created your estate plans, your estate documents, like your Power of Attorney or Last Will and Testament, likely reference your previous relationship, and as you enter this new chapter of your life, you’ll want to update these documents.

It’s impossible to know when these documents will be needed, so to protect yourself, your family, and your future husband or wife, you should ensure your estate documents accurately reflect your current situation.

A good rule to follow is to update your estate documents after any major life events (including having or adopting a child, purchasing a home, and more).

Start Your Next Chapter Properly

Although we all want our fairy tale life to start sooner rather than later, without taking the appropriate steps before getting remarried, you can quickly end up the protagonist of your own tragic tale.

Confirming your relationship status, getting a prenup, and updating your estate plans are just three things you should do before getting remarried that can be essential to protecting yourself—and your family—from future problems or mishaps.

Is there anything else you would recommend to someone who’s getting remarried? Let us know in the comments!

Having my tattoo removed is twice as painful, and costly, as getting it done

by

Whitney Barthel

posted in Life

After shamefully apologizing to doctors and anesthesiologists poking around my back for years (hello, I have 5 children and have had several spinals and epidurals), I decided my tattoo had to go.

As a young and impulsive woman, I had rushed into getting what would later be termed a “tramp stamp.” About a month ago I underwent my first laser tattoo removal procedure.

Four short weeks ago I went in for a consultation and came out with one treatment under my belt. It was weird — I went in thinking I would talk to the people about my regretful tattoo and I would come out with a written plan and consent forms and health history papers and a future date to come back. Nope.

The doctor came in, told me it would be $ 250 per treatment and I would need between 5 and 15 treatments (how specific of him), and fired up the laser. And before I could even process all this information we were rolling.

I knew laser tattoo removal is expensive, so I was only slightly shocked by the price tag. What I was surprised by was how painful it actually is. I mean, it’s a laser. I was thinking it’s the same concept of those little pointers you see in business meetings and in cat toys, how painful could it be? Well, let me just say this: it’s about twice as painful as actually getting the tattoo.

tattoo removal

Thankfully, thankfully, getting a laser treatment was quick. My tattoo is semi-large and the whole procedure took probably about five minutes.

Here is another thing that surprised me: it takes around six weeks to see the full results of a treatment. SIX! Apparently your body needs time to soak up the ink broken up by the laser. Also, your skin needs time to heal because many people experience pus-filled blisters after the first couple of treatments. Surprise!

Clear signs of fading at 4 weeks post treatment. The butterfly looks like a big blurry mess, as apposed to a big normal mess thanks to those pus-filled blisters turning into scabs.

I like to look at this whole experience as symbolic so I don’t go crazy with regret. In the end, my tattoo cost $ 158 and took a couple of hours. Cleaning up this bad decision I made on a whim will take thousands of dollars and a year of lasers and blistered skin.

*Keep checking back for progress on my tattoo removal journey!

Basketball Wife Swap: Gloria Govan And Derek Fisher Are Getting Married

Ex-NBA star Derek Fisher popped the question to his girlfriend, former Basketball Wives star Gloria Govan — and she said, “YES!”
TMZ reports that 43-year-old Fisher got down on one knee during an intimate gathering at their Los Angeles-area home on April 7, surrounded by their kids and Gloria’s nephew.

Derek had some of Gloria’s friends take her out during the day so he could decorate the house while she was gone.
Derek and Gloria have been dating since 2015.

Both were previously married…. Gloria to Matt Barnes — which caused some legendary drama between Derek and his ex-Lakers teammate. But Barnes recently said the two are now cool. He also took to Instagram to let everyone know he’s “all for it” (Derek and Gloria’s engagement). That post has now been deleted and this one is in its place:

Barnes told The Breakfast Club that he and Derek were cool now and that his issue was not so much that he was dating Govan, but that he was living with Govan and his kids and hadn’t told him about it. Barnes said his twin boys told him about the relationship.

No word on when Derek and Gloria plan on officially tying the knot.

Meanwhile, Basketball Wives is returning to VH1 for another season of wig-snatching drama.

A few new girls are joining Evelyn Lozada, Shaunie O’Neal, Jennifer Williams, Malaysia Pargo, Tami Roman and Jackie Christie, who is still … Jackie, as evident from the trailer below.

Getting away from it all – 3 of the remotest places on earth

ADVERTISEMENT

Life is hectic. Sometimes you just want to get away from it all. From the traffic, from the noise, cell phones, email and social media. Maybe you want to walk out into the middle of the woods and be alone? But there are always other people! Maybe you want to just travel to another country? But it’s exactly the same thing there too but in a different language.

If you truly want to get away from it all, to completely disconnect and cut yourself off from all the hustle bustle and noise, you’re going to have to get somewhere far, far away. It won’t be easy, but it is definitely possible to do. Here are three of those places where you can just go and get away from it all.

Point Nemo

Do you love the ocean? Do you want to be on a ship by yourself with a close to 0 percent chance that you will be bothered by a passing ship or any human presence at all? Then Point Nemo is the place for you.

Point Nemo is the point in the southern Pacific ocean which is the farthest away from land in any direction. Named after the Latin word “no one,” the closest island is more than 1,600 miles away.

Just be warned that if you are indeed planning to go spend some time there on your ship, you will need to bring provisions. Due to the fact that the area is so remote (there isn’t anything underwater either!), the area is basically a dead zone without many fish inhabiting the area.

Additionally, whenever a space agency is finished with a satellite and wants to crash it into the earth, they usually crash it into Point Nemo to make sure that it won’t hit anyone. So if you do decide to go there, make sure no space junk is coming for your boat.

Tristan da Cunha

So maybe you want to be in a place with a little bit of land and not be threatened by getting hit by space debris. However, you still want to be completely disconnected, yet the idea of being around a few people doesn’t seem all that bad – so long as there is absolutely no traffic.

Maybe the island of Tristan da Cunha is the place for you! This British colony is the remotest island in the world, being 1,200 miles away from the nearest island and 1,500 miles away from the nearest continent! Tristan da Cunha only has about 290 people living on the island, and the only way to reach the island is from South Africa on either a polar exploring ship or one of two fishing boats. The trip takes about 6 days, and boats only stop on the island about 6-7 times a year.

But never fear! You will truly be alone as there is no cell phone coverage on the island, and the only place to get online is at one internet cafe. Even then, the internet is only fast enough to send emails.

Svalbard

So maybe you want to get away from it all, but you still want to have some way of getting out and going back home. Maybe you also want to be able to call your family to tell them that you are ok. But you still want that feeling of remoteness. Where should you go?

Maybe you can try Svalbard – a group of islands way north of Norway? There are only 2,500 people on the islands, a couple of roads, an airport, and a good amount of ports. It’s easy to just go up into the mountains and see literally no one, but still be able to come back a short while later for some R&R back in civilization.

Maybe you can memorize where the giant seed vault is on the islands. The seed vault holds thousands of seeds for just in case the world takes a turn for the worst and humanity needs to start over from scratch.

More teens than ever aren’t getting enough sleep

Researchers found that about 40 percent of adolescents in 2015 slept less than 7 hours a night, which is 58 percent more than in 1991 and 17 percent more than in 2009. They further learned that the more time young people reported spending online, the less sleep they got. Teens who spent 5 hours a day online were 50 percent more likely to not sleep enough than their peers who only spent an hour online each day.

Pregnant Chrissy Teigen ‘Saved’ by a Stranger from ‘Getting Run Over by a Cyclist’ in New York

Chrissy Teigen had a close call with a cyclist on Tuesday night while walking in New York City.

The pregnant mother of one was photographed stepping off a sidewalk with what initially appeared to be an overeager fan reach out towards her.

The photograph had a number of fans both concerned and bemused. One fan tweeted the photo at the model and jokingly wrote, “Hey @chrissyteigen this looks like you have strapped a very small man to your boob. Happy Thursday x.”

Teigen, who is due to welcome a son with husband John Legend in June, also joked back and wrote, “I had the baby.”

However, when another fan suggested the man was up to no good and called him a “creeper”, Teigen made it clear she is actually in his debt.

The model responded with, “Nah he actually saved me from getting run over by a cyclist. I should have looked before stepping out!”

“Hello it’s 10:10 and I have 10 million followers!” she wrote.

Teigen, 32, is in New York City with her husband, as he prepares to star in NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert on Easter Sunday.

RELATED: John Legend Opens Up About Playing Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar: He ‘Was a Bit of a Revolutionary’

The singer recently told PEOPLE that he and Teigen were “excited” to welcome their second child but joked that their daughter Luna, who turns 2 in April, might “have some moments where she regrets” having a little brother.

“I don’t think Luna has a concept of exactly what it means to have a little sibling yet,” Legend said. “She’ll figure it out sooner or later, and she’ll probably have some moments where she regrets it! But we’re excited.”

Legend also revealed that while his son’s birth is creeping closer and closer, he and Teigen are still nesting.

“We still have a little bit of work to do — we’ve got to get the new bedroom ready — but we have a few months to go,” he said. “I think after having one, there’s a lot of things you learn the first time that will be helpful this second time around. But I’m sure it’ll add a whole other layer of complexity with two at a time!”

Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert airs Easter Sunday, April 1 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

Black Panther’s Dora Milaje are Getting Comic Book Spin-Off

The Dora Milaje the female warriors who serve and protect the Wakanda kingdom and T’Challa are finally getting a comic book spinoff. Marvel editor Wil Moss announced on Friday that the elite force would appear in a collection of one-shot comics Wakanda Forever.

Nnedi Okorafor will write the comics. In an interview with Vogue Okorafor said of the female protectors, “Typically when you see them, they’re with T’Challa, representing and protecting him. Now you’re going to see the Dora Miljae for the first time as an independent entity; they’re not under the shadow of the throne.”

Alberto Alburquerque will do the art. The comics will follow Okoye, Ayo, Aneka and the Dora Milaje as their stories move through Amazing Spider-Man, Avengers and X-Men. The first issue will see the ladies head to New York with Peter Parker to “investigate a threat to national security.”

In a moment Okorafor said was “coming for a long time,” the first issue arrives in June, followed by X-Men: Wakanda Forever in July and Avengers: Wakanda Forever in August.

Dear Ricky Gervais and Other Comics, Your Caitlyn Jenner ‘Jokes’ Are Getting Old

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast

Stand-up comedy specials are strange beasts: They must at once capture a moment, delivering timely jokes on the hot topics of today, but years from now, they will also be the way we remember and revisit the best work of our favorite comic minds.

An hour of televised stand-up is to a comedian what a book is to an author or an album to a band: Part of their legacy. Something to be remembered by.

Which only makes it all the more baffling that so many of today’s most successful comedians—most recently British Office creator Ricky Gervais in his Netflix special Humanity—are wasting so much of their precious time on tired jokes about Caitlyn Jenner and other transgender people.

All Hail! Queen Elizabeth II’s Fashion Choices Are Getting Bolder

Queen Elizabeth II

All hail Her Royal Highness! Long before Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle captured our hearts with their fabulous royal style, Queen Elizabeth II has been nailing it with her sensible skirt suits and elegant handbags. But even the Queen can mix things up every once and while, and she appeared to be having a grand old time in a fuchsia ball gown at a dinner at Windsor Castle on Thursday, March 8, in honor of the Aga Khan’s diamond jubilee as Imam of the Shia Ismaili Muslim Community.

Ditching her preferred pastels, HRH looked radiant in a long-sleeved hot pink ball gown that subtlety nipped at the waist. The floor-length design included shimmering gold detailing, which the Queen further accented with her metallic accessories.

While we are used to seeing her majesty with her favorite structured black leather Launer handbag and matching pumps, she chose a shiny gold version of the traditional style for the evening’s festivities —which included a reception and private dinner — and coordinating pointy-toe heels.

Her bling was equally blinding, rocking a diamond necklace, earrings, bracelet and rings that we can only assume Kate and Meg will be clamoring to borrow. She finished off the look with her classic curled coif and a pretty pink lip.

Despite some six decades on the throne, the 91-year-old is still showing no sign of slowing down. She made history last month when she attended London Fashion Week for the first time of her reign wearing a beautiful blue, crystal-embellished Angela Kelly skirt and jacket to present the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design to Richard Quinn. And with Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge expecting their third child in April and Prince Harry set to marry Markle in May, we will likely be treated to many more fashionable appearances by the monarch!

Braxton Family Values Season 6: Somebody’s Getting Married!

There’s tension between the Braxton sisters over Toni Braxton‘s upcoming wedding to Birdmana new trailer for season six of WE tv’s Braxton Family Values has revealed.

The clip shows Toni, Tamar, Traci, Towanda, Trina and their mom Evelyn struggling to keep the peace at home after Toni reveals her hip-hop mogul popped the question

“I have an announcement to make,” she teased her family before yelling, “I’m engaged!” After showing off a massive diamond, she asks Tamar to plan her nuptials…. but their mama has another sister in mind for this task.

“I think Tamar is good, but I think Towanda is good also,” prompting Toni to yell out, “I’m breaking out in hives!”

As reported by E! News, Evelyn has praised the Cash Money Records co-founder in the past.

“I think he is a nice man,” she said in a radio interview in 2016. “I don’t care what others say about him. He is a nice man. He is full of respect…Ever since I’ve been knowing that man, he’s been phenomenal.”

Birdman and Toni first started dating in May 2016, making their first public appearance as a couple at the 2016 BET Awards last June.

Meanwhile, each of the Braxton ladies are dealing with their own personal struggles.

Towanda alludes to relationship issues, telling her mom, “Everything was cool until he found out I was seeing somebody.”

Tamar continues to grapple with the aftermath of her “very public divorce” from music manager Vincent Herbert.

The preview for the upcoming season also reveals that there’s an arrest, a bombshell media leak and a “shocking betrayal” that forces the sisters to “pick a side.”

We are ALL getting this present on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding day

It’s no bank holiday but it’s probably the next best thing…

Geoff Pugh/REX/Shutterstock

The countdown to the royal wedding is officially on, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set to wed on May 19th at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The past few months have been consumed by what we can expect from a Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wedding, with updates on everything from who will be Meghan Markle’s dress designer and how the couple are deciding on their seating plan to who will be performing at the reception – it’s looking like Elton John.

In fact, we know so much about how the royal couple and their guests will be spending the day that we’ve completely forgotten to work out how we will be marking the occasion ourselves.

When Prince William and Kate Middleton married on Friday 29th April 2011, the day was declared a bank holiday as a result, allowing us all to celebrate with street parties up and down the country. It seemed plausible therefore that we might get a day off work for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s nuptials.

kiss

Unfortunately, for, well, everyone, the couple have chosen to get married on a Saturday so there’s no chance of a day off or a bank holiday, but as a consolation the government has decided to give us all a present to make celebrating easier.

According to the Independent, Home Secretary Amber Rudd has announced that pubs across the UK will have their licensing hours extended over the royal wedding weekend – giving us more time to ‘join together and celebrate’.

‘As shown by the support for the proposal to extend licensing hours, it’s clear that the public back the idea of having more time to raise a glass to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on a day of national celebration,’ she announced.

Well that’s something we suppose.

2017 was a great year for T-Mobile, but things are only just getting started

T-Mobile Q4 2017

Last week, T-Mobile reported its results for the last quarter of 2017. Headlining the generally-excellent news was T-Mobile’s subscriber figures, which shows the company added 891,000 postpaid customers in Q4 2017, while keeping “churn” — the turnover of customers, where lower is better — to a Q4 record of just 1.18%.

With strong numbers like that, it’s easy to expect that 2018 will be a slightly flatter year for the company. In fact, T-Mobile’s own projections predict the company will add just 3 million new customers in 2018, down from 2017. But according to analysts’ notes seen by Fierce Wireless, the numbers don’t show T-Mobile slowing down any time soon.

Lindsey Vonn Had a Rough Time Getting to the Winter Olympics

Lindsey Vonn has waited a long time to represent Team USA once more at the Olympics — so a (very) delayed flight wasn’t going to bring her down. The athlete’s flight, which was scheduled to depart from Munich to Seoul at 4:10 p.m. local time, was held back because passengers were told that they needed a new document to fly.

According to ESPN, Vonn and her fellow passengers — which included other Olympic athletes — sat on the plane for three hours before having to get off to board another aircraft.

“I want to sleep so bad but I have to wait until we take off,” she wrote in a text, via ESPN. “You never know what’s going to happen.”

Luckily, the 33-year-old made it just in time for the Pyeongchang Games. “After over 6 hours of hanging out at the gate, we’re off!! See you in another 10 hours Korea!” she tweeted on Wednesday night. “We made it!!! It took exactly 24 hours… but we are here!!”

This is Vonn’s first time back at the Olympics in eight years. She had to miss the Sochi Olympics because of her knee injury. The opening ceremony kicks off on Friday, February 9, and her first scheduled event is the Super G on Saturday, February 17.

Lindsey Vonn Is Having Trouble Getting to South Korea for the Winter Olympics

Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn is on her way to South Korea for the Winter Olympics, but only after encountering a series of delays.

Vonn tweeted to her almost 1 million followers on Wednesday, writing that her Lufthansa plane sat on the runway for nearly two hours without taking off, and that it seemed like incorrect travel documents were to blame.

Two hours later she updated her Twitter feed, saying that the airline had passengers deplane while a new plane was being located.

Ever the prolific tweeter, Vonn also included a play-by-play of her experience on the delayed flight, telling her followers that she caught a man next to her discreetly trying to take a selfie with her when his camera flash accidentally gave him away.

About five hours after getting on the original plane, Vonn tweeted that she was finally on a new plane:

Vonn is trying to get to PyeongChang to participate in this year’s opening ceremony, which kicks off Feb. 9. The Olympics-bound athlete is the most accomplished female ski racer in history, with 78 World Cup wins under her belt.

She had to sit out the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, due to injury, so this will be her first Olympics in eight years. She said on social media that it will be especially emotional for her due to her grandfather’s passing, saying she would “make him proud.”

Getting Started with Crowdfunding: The Basics

crowdfunding

Crowdfunding has proven to be a popular way for content creators, individuals, or charities to raise money to either completely fund or contribute to a project or cause.

Although many crowdfunding websites make it easy for you to post your project, actually achieving your goal can be more difficult.

Before you get started, take a look at some of the most popular questions about crowdfunding to help you build a successful campaign.

How Does Crowdfunding Work?

Crowdfunding is when an idea or project – whether it be a product, invention, or business – is posted online to a crowdfunding website to gauge public interest. If someone is interested in seeing the idea come to fruition, the crowdfunding website provides a platform where that person (usually called a backer) can donate or pledge money to help the creator (the person or people running the project) realize their idea.

The creator generally provides the backer with some kind of incentive for their support, depending on what type of project they are crowdfunding for.

As an example, if the creator is showcasing a business, they might give backers special rates or discounts based on how much they donate or pledge to the project.

Is Crowdfunding a Good Idea?

Some content creators have found massive success from utilizing crowdfunding to make their idea a reality. In 2015 the comedy group Broken Lizard successfully funded a sequel to their hit movie Super Troopers through crowdfunding.

That being said, there is always a chance that your crowdfunding campaign will not be successful.

Thankfully, there’s little risk in trying since most websites allow you to try again after your campaign is over.

You can increase your chances of success by making sure that you have a solid foundation for your idea and you have clear identifiable outcomes so potential backers have confidence in your project.

Top crowdfunding websites, such as Kickstarter, gofundme, and indiegogo generally all have the same recommendations for what to include in your campaign:

  • An eye-catching title and headline. This will help to capture your target audience’s attention by being concise, direct, and including relevant keywords (keywords are certain words that appear often in a search engine like Google, and help your website show up when people search those keywords)
  • Quality images. High-quality images help showcase your product or explain your idea. Avoid using images that are blurry or hidden in too much text.
  • Campaign updates. Providing updates (such as when a milestone is reached) to your backers keeps them engaged and included in the creative process, providing an opportunity for them to see how their donations are helping the progress of the project.
  • Incentives. Giving rewards that your backers will receive once the project is complete provide an inventive to donate.

Which Crowdfunding Site Is the Best?

Choosing the best crowdfunding website depends on the nature of your project.

For example, Indiegogo’s website title states that they are “for entrepreneurs”, so they might be the better choice for business-related endeavors, while Kickstarter showcases more creative-focused projects, such as film, publishing, games, and even food.

If you are looking to promote something more personal or charitable, then gofundme may be a good choice.

How Long Should You Run a Crowdfunding Campaign?

Before you run your crowdfunding campaign, you should have a clear idea of when you will be able to provide your backers with updates or milestones for your project.

Of course, unexpected issues can happen during the course of a campaign, but it’s important that your audience and backers remain informed throughout the process, even if things don’t go as planned.

Kickstarter suggests that campaigns that last less than 60 days are generally the most successful, and recommends setting your campaign date at 30 days or less. However, it is important to note that at least with Kickstarter, once you’ve set the start and end date of your campaign, the dates cannot be changed and if your project is not successful, you do not receive any money from your backers.

Just like when you are choosing which crowdfunding website suits your project the best, it’s important to do research on what similar projects are doing, your target audience, etc. so you have the best chance of executing a successful campaign of your own.

Should I Make a Crowdfunding Campaign?

With little risk involved, it’s easy to see why crowdfunding is a popular choice for budding entrepreneurs, content creators, and charities. Crowdfunding provides an easy, accessible way for anyone to raise funds for countless types of projects, and also gives people the opportunity to contribute to projects that may have otherwise never had the chance to come to fruition.

William Carlos Williams’ plums in the icebox poem somehow became a meme, and it’s getting out of control

William Carlos Williams’ plums in the icebox poem somehow became a meme, and it’s getting out of control


William Carlos Williams’ plums in the icebox poem somehow became a meme, and it’s getting out of control

It seems as if Twitter is an endless meme machine. Meaning to say that now Twitter’s made even a William Carlos Williams poem go viral. Do we know why his famous “This Is Just To Say” poem was the latest meme to take over the Internet? No. But the plums in the icebox are suddenly everywhere. And, honestly, we’re kind of loving all the crazy tweets inspired by them.

With this newest Twitter meme, the best part is how it makes very little sense at face value. And how it seemed to come completely out of nowhere. That’s probably why Twitter loved it, to be honest. Everyone had their takes and everyone wanted to make sure they were heard. Some of the best, though, came from those users who decided the poem needed the musical treatment. From song lyrics to just questioning the sanity of the work itself, everyone seemed to have quite the take on William Carlos Williams’ infamous plums in the icebox poem. The main question, though, is why were there plums in the icebox at all? And why did someone put them there to save for breakfast?

Either way, Twitter had fun and didn’t exactly lighten up very quickly. They loved this poem and all the jokes they could make.

Because William Carlos Williams’ plums were just so sweet, so cold.

First, this user just didn’t want Jolene to eat her plums. Steal her man, that’s fine. Just not the plums.

But then, of course, there’s the initial telling your friend that you did, in fact, eat the plums.

And finally, the dreams this user had about a man and woman eating the plums while he was sick to his stomach. You know, because he’s the Mr. Brightside of plum loving.

People had all kinds of takes.

And they just couldn’t stop.

Overall, the memes are just incredible and yes, it is strange that suddenly a William Carlos Williams poem is back in the forefront of our minds. But this is Twitter after all.

Say What Now? Anti-LGBT Lawmaker Resigns After Getting Caught Having Sex with a Man in His Office

Wes Goodman, the Republican state legislator for Ohio, who is married to a woman that happens to be the assistant director of an annual anti-abortion rally known as March for Life, has resigned after being caught having sex with a man in his office.

Wes is locally known for his deep Christian faith and anti-LGBT viewpoints.

via The Independent:

The right-wing legislator, who pushed “family values”, was reportedly witnessed having sex with a man inside his office who was not employed by the legislator.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, the observer told Ohio House Chief of Staff Mike Dittoe what had happened on Tuesday afternoon. Mr Dittoe responded by telling House Speaker Republican Cliff Rosenberger who in turn met with Mr Goodman.

The 33-year-old, who has been branded the “conscience of the conservative movement”, resigned for “inappropriate conduct” shortly after the meeting took place.

Mr Goodman, whose Twitter biography describes him as “Christian. American. Conservative. Republican. Husband to @Beth1027”, has regularly claimed “natural marriage” occurs between a man and a woman. 

“Healthy, vibrant, thriving, values-driven families are the source of Ohio’s proud history and the key to Ohio’s future greatness,” reads his campaign website which has now been taken offline.

“The ideals of a loving father and mother, a committed natural marriage, and a caring community are well worth pursuing and protecting.”

Mr Goodman was elected to represent the 87th District, in north-central Ohio, just last year. Prior to that, he worked as an aide to US Representative Jim Jordan, a highly conservative, anti-LGBT Republican. 

The Human Rights Campaign, the largest LGBT advocacy group in the US, named Mr Jordan in their Hall of Shame in 2014 for attempting to block marriage equality in the District of Columbia.

Mr Goodman, whose Twitter is now private and whose Facebook page has been taken offline, expressed his commitment to so-called family values in a statement back in 2013. “Faith, family, service, stewardship, strong education, and investment in our local communities are what Ohioans value. My wife Bethany and I value those same things and are ready to get to work to serve you,” he said.

The lawmaker acknowledged he was stepping down in a statement. “We all bring our own struggles and our own trials into public life,” he said. 

“That has been true for me, and I sincerely regret that my actions and choices have kept me from serving my constituents and our state in a way that reflects the best ideals of public service,” he continued. “For those whom I have let down, I’m sorry. As I move onto the next chapter of my life, I sincerely ask for privacy for myself, my family, and my friends.”

“I was alerted to details yesterday afternoon regarding his involvement in inappropriate behaviour related to his state office,” Mr Rosenberger said in a statement. “I met with him later in the day where he acknowledged and confirmed the allegations. It became clear that his resignation was the most appropriate course of action for him, his family, the constituents of the 87th House District and this institution.”

When we first saw this headline we were hoping said lawmaker was Mike Pence — but unfortunately it wasn’t. Not this time.

Fancy getting your hands on a pair of Kate Moss’ shoes?

Ever dreamed of walking in a celeb’s shoes? Quick, now’s your chance to bid for them while helping children out of poverty

shoes

This year, Kate Moss, Emma Watson and Poppy Delevingne are just a handful of the celebrities who have stepped forward to donate their most treasured pair of shoes to be auctioned off for the Small Steps Project. With previous celebrity donors including Helena Christensen and Oprah Winfrey, this is an unmissable opportunity to get some celebrity-endorsed footwear.

The charity was founded by former showbiz journalist Amy Hanson, who quit her job to launch the charity after a life-changing visit to Cambodia seven years ago.

‘I had just turned 30 and was looking for something more meaningful to contribute in life,’ says Hanson. ‘After seeing so many homeless kids scavenging barefoot on rubbish dumps filled with broken glass and sharp objects on Cambodia’s largest landfill site, I was heartbroken and an idea just came to me. I thought, perhaps I could use the experience and contacts I have through my job to make a positive change to their lives.’

And from her bedroom in north London, the world’s biggest celebrity shoe auction was born.

Today, Amy spends her time travelling between various Small Steps projects in Nicaragua, Romania and Laos to oversee how the funds are spent. What began as just giving out shoes, has developed into providing children with what they need to make the small steps out of poverty and into education, breaking the crippling cycle of scavenging for survival.

‘Thousands of Manolos could have been gathering dust in celebrity wardrobes all over the world, but instead they’ve helped fund nurseries, mother and baby units, medical, nutrition and education programmes and really transform lives,’ says Hanson. ‘And we’re just getting started.’

Celebrities from all walks of life have been sharing their reasons for contributing to the project. Legendary fashion designer and eco-warrior Vivienne Westwood has voiced her backing for the Small Steps auction, saying, ‘I am proud and happy to be on board.’ Ed Sheeran added, ‘I am really proud to be able to support such a great charity that is not only close to the hearts of Glastonbury but to myself and the many artists that take a small step to help children with no shoes at all.’

The Small Steps Project #CelebrityShoeAuction runs until 21st November
Bid here NOW.

Here are just some of the celebrities who have taken part in previous years:

Kate Moss: ‘I’ve donated these mother of pearl heels because they are special and precious like the children that London charity Small Steps Project help. I love to support charities that are close the my heart and home.’

shoes

Natalie Portman: ‘These are vegan sneakers you can hike or play soccer or dance in – all my favourite activities.’

Sienna Miller: ‘I am happy to be donating my shoes once again to such an amazing charity that really makes a world of a difference in the lives of less fortunate children and their families.’

Helen Christensen:Small Steps is a wonderful organisation to be an ambassador for. I’ve been donating shoes for years. This year, I’m donating my favourite red Miu Miu heels.’

Here’s why my kids are only getting gifts cards this Christmas

by

Melissa Willets

posted in Parenting

See that featured photo above? That is what a typical Christmas in our house looks like. As in excess, excess, excess. As in, mountains of gifts my kids open, play with for a few hours, then throw in a pile.

Of course, we are beyond lucky to be able to give them Christmases of excess. But this year, I just don’t want to do the holiday this way.

Maybe it’s because we lost a baby this year, and I view everything through a different lens. Either way, this year, Christmas is about us together as a family, really being present and feeling grateful for what we have. Not tearing open gift after gift and then going on with our lives.

So this year, we are giving our kids an experience instead of gifts. We are taking them to Disney World.

But they still need something to open on Christmas morning; I get that. Thus, the lazy gift my husband and I decided upon: gift cards.

Christmas at Disney

Seriously, gift cards. That’s it.

There are so many reasons why giving our children gifts cards makes sense:

  1. They’re travel-friendly. And I’m not scrappy enough to figure out how to sneakily pack a bunch of gifts among my packed clothing to take on the plane.
  2. I don’t feel like going Christmas shopping. I’m just not up for it this season. The stores are already crowded and picked over. And in the past I’ve spent forever standing around in the aisles, figuring out who should get what, and deciding whether the kids are all getting an equal number of gifts, and on and on.
  3. My kids have a million, gazillion toys already. As stated above, seriously, enough already!
  4. Gift cards allow the kids to pick out their own gifts. And take the onus off of me to do it. They get what they want. Done.
  5. This season is meant to be more about what we already have. We have each other, and we are so fortunate. We don’t need to spend hours opening gifts to count our blessings.

Taking our kids to Disney this Christmas but not getting them gifts

We’re not depriving them or teaching them some life lesson about frugality by taking them to the Happiest Place on Earth for the holidays, I realize. But that’s not the point.

What I am aiming for is a holiday that focuses on family and being together instead of mountains of gifts. I want to be in those moments with my kids, on the rides or at a meal or at the hotel pool. I want to hear their giggles, see their delight, feel their hugs.

Opening gifts will be there whenever. But this time when the kids are little and we can be together as a family, and they want to be with us, is fleeting. And I plan to treasure it, rather than spend my time standing in store lines, and wrapping a zillion gifts, then sitting around for hours opening gifts on Christmas morning.

Besides, my kids think gift cards are credit cards, and feel like grown ups handing a store cashier their own forms of payment. So everybody wins!

Would you give your kids gift cards for Christmas?

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick Discuss Possibly Getting Married at 40

 

It’s summertime in Calabasas, which means new beginnings for all three of the Kardashian sisters.

On Sunday’s episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kim, 37, launched her KKW Beauty line, Khloé, 33, brought her boyfriend home for the summer, and Kourtney, 38, tried to set some boundaries with Scott Disick, 34, after he wasn’t invited to Khloé’s surprise birthday party.

Khloe’s homecoming

After spending the majority of the basketball season with her boyfriend, Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson, in Ohio, Khloé, reveals to Kim and Kourtney that she and the NBA star will be spending the summer in Los Angeles.

“I love that Tristan was like, ‘I want to be there this summer,’ ” Khloé explained to her sisters. “We’re always in Cleveland. He literally can’t come here and hang out with you guys. He’s like, ‘I want to be a part of your family and do stuff as a group.’ ”

The Good American founder continued, “He was like, ‘I want to be with your family more,’ and he really wants to hang out with all of us more. We’re going to be here, but we also want a house in the city.”

Khloé stresseed over finding a rental in Los Angeles for the pair to spend the summer so Thompson, 26, could be closer to UCLA, where he did twice-daily workouts. “Trust me, nobody in L.A. wants to sit in traffic for over two hours every single day,” she said.

The Revenge Body host added that she wanted to make sure Tristan was comfortable on her coast since he’d done the same for her in Cleveland. “Tristan has always gone out of his way to make me feel at home,” she said. “And in Cleveland he’s gone above and beyond, so in L.A. I want to do the same for him.”

Without the help from mom Kris — who was busy coordinating Khloé’s surprise birthday party with Thompson — Khloé ultimately decided to have Thompson live with her at her Calabasas home.

“After talking with Tristan we have come to the conclusion that I’m crazy,” she recounted. “I don’t know why I was stressing myself out when we have our beautiful home in Calabasas. All Tristan really wants is to be with me and for us to enjoy our summer together. That’s really all that matters.”

Party time!

Just as she settled on a living situation, Khloé got caught off guard when Thompson surprised her with a birthday party with her family and friends in L.A.

“I’ve never had a surprise party ever,” Khloé said. “We were at dinner and Tristan was so calm. He was as cool as a cucumber. He’s good at surprise parties because I had no clue.”

Thompson gave a sweet speech at the gathering and shouted out fellow basketball player Brandon Jennings, who originally set him up with Khloé on a blind date. “I’m very honored and glad to be a part of your journey,” Thompson told his girlfriend in front of the attendees.

Khloé was swept away by the touching evening he organized. “Tristan is just incredible,” she gushed. “I’ve never been this happy. I am so lucky to be with someone that is so thoughtful and so sweet.”

No invite for Scott

But Disick didn’t feel as satisfied with the evening since he wasn’t on the guest list.

“I didn’t even get invited to her birthday,” he complained to Kim and ex Kourtney. “I’m family!”

Knowing Kourtney was the reason he didn’t get to go, she offered him a weak excuse: “I didn’t want you to coming to the birthday and be photographed going in.”

“Photographed going in is your concern?” Disick responded. “My concern would be … to be there for your sister who I love and cared about for the past 10-12 years and been there for through thick and thin and marriages and all these different things.”

Kourtney had been adopting a positive outlook and later divulged to Khloé over a workout that she was taken aback by the confrontation.

“I’m a little bit caught off guard and I just said that I didn’t want to be photographed even though that’s really not what I meant,” Kourtney admitted. “I just try to be positive. And I didn’t want to say I just didn’t want you there. So if I can’t say anything nice, I just won’t say anything at all.”

With Khloé’s advice, Kourtney came clean to the father of her three kids about the real reason why she didn’t want him at the birthday affair. “There’s times when I want you to come and there’s times that I don’t,” she told Disick bluntly.

Disick understood and admitted hanging out with a string of various women in Cannes prior to the party wasn’t the best look. “Obviously I’m not able to handle everything that well,” he said. “I don’t have the best support team. I can try to f—ing be a better person, but it’s not the simplest thing.”

The conversation eventually took a lighter turn, and Disick joked, “When do you think were gonna get married by the way, like 40?”

Kourtney responded, “You think when I turn 40 I’m gonna go, hey I’ve been looking for this drunk guy and he has a bunch of dirty sh— stained underwear?”

Kim’s beautiful venture

Kim’s stressors didn’t come from the man in her life. In fact, she said husband Kanye West actually helped her plan the launch party for her KKW Beauty line.

“Kanye saw the plans and it was so helpful his input,” Kim said. “He called the florist and we made that whole flower rose room last minute, and that was honestly like the biggest attraction.”

Kim hosted beauty bloggers and industry titans at her house to support her cosmetics line, which she had announced at the Forbes Women’s Summit in June.

“It’s so exciting to do something on my own,” she said. “Basically for the past almost decade my sisters and I have always had a licensing deal but going from being a licensee to an owner is such a big deal and it’s so much more responsibility. I feel like this has been what I’ve been working for for 10 years.”

But the mother of two was nervous about doing the interview with Forbes’ editor-in-chief at the summit, as she was still easing into doing press after her October 2016 robbery.

“I’ve been like slowly taking my time to come back and this is a serious, sit-down, major interview,” Kim told Kris, 62. “This isn’t … I don’t know how something like this could go. If they want to ask me crazy questions, it’s Steve Forbes. It’s hard for me to get back out there.”

But in the end — after releasing new promotional images because fans thought she was wearing blackface in the originals — Kim was happy with how the launch party turned out. “There’s such amazing press on this launch party,” she gushes. “And I’m so happy we made so many changes so it would be perfect.”

The NYC attack shouldn’t lead to getting rid of the diversity lottery program

The NYC attack shouldn’t lead to getting rid of the diversity lottery program


The NYC attack shouldn’t lead to getting rid of the diversity lottery program

On Wednesday morning, President Trump tweeted that the New York City attacker arrived in the U.S. under the “diversity lottery program” and that his administration would seek to end it. But Trump is totally wrong about the diversity lottery program for a few reasons, the biggest one being that getting rid of the diversity lottery program wouldn’t have changed anything about the attack on Tuesday afternoon.

The Department of Homeland Security confirmed late Wednesday that the New York City attacker entered the U.S. in 2010 with a passport and a valid diversity immigrant visa, according to the Washington Post. But NYPD and law enforcement said in previous statements that he was radicalized after coming to the U.S., so for that very simple reason, changing the immigration policy wouldn’t have worked in this particular case. Aside from that, the diversity lottery program allows many immigrants to come to the U.S. who otherwise wouldn’t be able to, and closing those doors might not be the best thing for the country.

Trump said in a press conference, also Wednesday, that the diversity visa lottery program is not “nice.” “It sounds nice. It’s not nice. It’s not good,” he (sort of) explained. But it’s not like someone over at DHS spins some Bingo machine and randomly gives away free tickets to immigrants. It’s a lot more complicated than that.

The program was started in 1990 as a way to help immigrants come to the U.S. from countries that normally don’t have a lot of immigrants coming our way.

Recipients of the program come from countries that have fewer than 50,000 immigrants in the U.S. already and come from Africa, Asia, Europe, North America (other than Mexico), Oceania and South America, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean.

It’s supposed to fill in the gap for people who can’t get visas through employment or family connections. According to CNN, one million green cards are issued by the U.S. per year and last year, 45,664 of them were diversity visa recipients.

To even apply for the visa, they have to have at least a high school education or equivalent and have had at least two years of work experience that required training within five years of the application date. They also have to have an in-person interview and be “admissible” to the U.S., which means they have to disclose past criminal behavior, including associations with terrorists. They take fingerprint scans and require a medical check up, too.

Again, no one’s scratching some magic DHS lotto ticket in a foreign country and getting a free ride to the U.S.

It’s called a lottery because the odds of getting one, given the number of applicants, are worse than the odds of getting into Harvard University, according to Vice.

Trump wants to get rid of this path to citizenship entirely and make immigration solely “merit based.” But the requirements for a diversity visa are already pretty high. Instead of scrapping the program, the State department could also look into revising how they screen people coming in, especially since the political environment has changed a lot since President George H.W. Bush signed it into law.

There might be better ways to screen people, but blocking immigrants from smaller countries from coming here just because they already don’t have a job lined up or family members living somewhere in New Jersey just seems backwards. Think of all the talent and interesting human beings we’d be missing out on.

That being said, the diversity visa lottery program hasn’t always been popular and there have been a handful of terrorist plots associated with the program, though only Tuesday’s was fatal. The others are associated with the program only because there were very tangential actors in the plot who had the visa. Given the number of diversity visas given out every year, that seems more like probability than the visa program actual being a cause of terrorism.

Although the diversity visa lottery program was passed with bipartisan support back in 1990, there was a move by Democrats to overhaul immigration legislation back in 2013. Funny enough, New York Senator Chuck Schumer was a member the group who came up with an immigration reform package that would have eradicated the diversity visa program in the name of a 13-year pathway to citizenship for all immigrants.

On Wednesday, Trump seemed to have forgotten that part of immigration history, calling the diversity visa lottery a “Schumer beauty.” (Isn’t it nice to live in a world where the president erroneously blames the senator of the state that just experienced a terrorist attack? But anyway…)

Back in 2013, Politico reported that the bipartisan immigration reform bill would “revamp every corner of U.S. immigration law, establishing a 13-year pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants, with several security benchmarks that have to be met before they can obtain a green card.” The reform bill would have also required a mandatory workplace verification system for employers and increase security on the borders.

Obama lauded the reform bill as a perfect example of compromise. The measure would not only increases security along the border, but requires a mandatory workplace verification system for employers, trying to ensure no jobs are given to immigrants who are not authorized to work in the United States. As with so many other pieces of bipartisan legislation during the Obama era, the bill died in Congress.

Immigration reform and national security are important, nuanced issues that should be dealt with by Congress. But we shouldn’t allow emotions to take over and implement policies such as Trump’s elusive “extreme vetting” program (what does that even mean?) because of one single instance. Given that the most recent terrorist attacks in the U.S. were perpetrated by people who were radicalized after they moved here. Getting rid of the diversity visa lottery doesn’t address that one, very important aspect of terror attacks that happen here.

Getting Out More O. J.? The Juice Seen Having A Pepsi At A Wine Bar

We knew it was only a matter of time until O. J. Simpson got tired of staying in the shadows.

Earlier this week he did something about it. The former NFL running back, actor and now prison parolee after nine years, took a break from his not so bad private world of playing golf, etc and stepped out for some leisure time … with regular people.

Wednesday afternoon, he was spotted hanging out and posing for snaps with anyone who asked at Grape Street Cafe & Wine Bar in Downtown Summerlin, Nevada. And surprisingly, or not surprisingly, depending on one’s point of view, there was no shortage of people who wanted to rub shoulders with him.

One bar patron told The Blast that Simpson was a total gentleman when he asked the guy if he could grab the open seat next to him. The man says he quickly recognized Simpson, who even offered to take a photo with him, along with everyone else in the bar.

Simpson seemed very happy and spent a good amount of time bragging about his kids, according to another bar patron.

The story goes that The Juice sat with a few friends who kept ordering rounds of drinks, but O.J. mostly stuck to Pepsi. Lots and lots of Pepsi.

Bar sources say Simpson mentioned how rough it was not being able to drink Pepsi for 9 1/2 years.

Some speculate an endorsement deal could be imminent, but we’d be beyond shocked if Pepsi and OJ hooked up.
