The Weird and Wonderful Dr. John Embodied New Orleans Music

Jonathan Bachman/Reuters

The career of New Orleans musician Dr. John, who passed on June 6 at the age of 78, lasted almost 65 years. Born Malcolm “Mac” Rebennack in New Orleans in 1941, Dr. John learned music from various family members, including his father, a record salesman for jukeboxes who exposed him to the latest sounds. At age 13, he met Professor Longhair, the seminal pianist/composer who helped invent New Orleans r&b and funk; his path was set.

Mac’s recording history is large and bewildering, with stellar discs scattered through a good part of his six-Grammy career. Here is a guide to his best work.

He began recording in the late ’50s, with the best of these sides collected on Storm Warning (What Records). In the early ’60s, drug trouble sent him to jail, then exile in Los Angeles, where he found work with New Orleans ex-pats, including Sonny and Cher’s musical director, Harold Battiste. They concocted a stage act based on a 19th-century voodoo priest named Dr. John Creaux. Mac wanted his friend the pianist/singer Ronnie Barron to lead the band. When he declined, Mac stepped in.

MOVIE APP UPDATE:

Ex–NFL Player John Urschel Gave up the Game for a Ph.D.—and a Life—in Math

One recent afternoon in Cambridge, Mass., John Urschel and I strolled along the Charles River on the way to his office at MIT, where he’s pursuing a Ph.D. in mathematics. We were passing some of the MIT athletic facilities when I asked Urschel a seemingly mundane question. Where’s the football field? Urschel’s response was quick: “You’re looking at it.”

Now, I’m no MIT math major. But I’m bright enough to know I was staring straight at a baseball diamond. Such a slip would have been innocent enough, if Urschel hadn’t spent three seasons as an offensive lineman for the Baltimore Ravens.

In the summer of 2017, Urschel announced he was retiring from the NFL, at age 26, to pursue his mathematics doctorate full time. His decision came two days after the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study showing that chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative disease, had been found in the brains of 110 of 111 ex–NFL players examined by Boston University researchers. Yes, the findings factored into Urschel’s decision. But he insists they didn’t tip the scales. He had been thinking hard about stepping away, as he was already taking classes at MIT. Still, the media painted Urschel’s choice as more evidence that smart young pros, fearing brain trauma, were fleeing the game. Urschel’s story proved irresistible: the MIT mathematician had calculated that the NFL just wasn’t worth it.

After I inform Urschel that no, he wasn’t looking at a football field, he smiles. “I just don’t pay attention,” he says. But Urschel doesn’t object when I cite his slip as a signal that he’s left football far behind. Nearly two years after retiring, he says that while he misses the paycheck—who wouldn’t?—he hasn’t felt a single pang of regret on football Sundays, when he’s wrestling with theorems instead of 300-lb. linemen. “It’s a pretty cool life,” he says. “I wake up in the morning, I walk to my office. I think all day.”

Urschel dedicates much of his new memoir, Mind and Matter: A Life in Math and Football—written with his partner, the journalist Louisa Thomas—to espousing the importance of problem-solving. “It’s a strange thing,” says Urschel in the living room of the Cambridge apartment he shares with Thomas and their year-old daughter, Joanna. “Some people will sort of joke about, ‘Oh, I was never good at math.’ But people don’t joke about being illiterate. Being mathematically illiterate is quite a dangerous thing.”

Growing up in Buffalo, n.y., Urschel began his love affair with numbers early. When his attorney mother took him shopping, she’d let him keep the change if he calculated the 8% sales tax before the cashier rang it up. The summer before eighth grade, he audited a calculus class at the University at Buffalo, where his dad, a surgeon, was pursuing a master’s in economics. Soon, the junior high kid was helping college students finish problem sets.

He also fell for football. Urschel writes that when he was in high school, he and his father, who played collegiately in Canada, banged helmets in the backyard. In today’s concussion-conscious world, doctors frown upon this kind of head-to-head contact. Even so, Urschel says, “These are actually some of my fondest moments with my dad.”

Urschel earned a football scholarship to Penn State, where he majored in math. By the time the Ravens selected him in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL draft, he had his master’s degree and had published a paper in a top linear-algebra journal. (Urschel specializes in graph theory, the branch of advanced math that studies the connectivity of networks.) After a rookie season in which he started three games, plus two in the playoffs, he felt ashamed that he was putting off his Ph.D. work until he finished pro football. “I felt like I was selling myself short,” he says. So he applied to MIT’s Ph.D. program and was accepted. The American Mathematical Society named a theorem after Urschel and his co-author. “Let G be a finite connected undirected weighted graph without self-loops …,” the Urschel-Zikatanov theorem begins.

Before the 2015 season, Urschel had suffered a concussion that left him unable to process high-level math for a few months, but he returned to the field. By the summer of 2017, he was weighing his options more closely. He was settling into Ph.D. life, and Thomas was pregnant. Pounding heads seemed unappealing. Then that CTE study was released. Two days later, he informed Baltimore coach John Harbaugh that he was retiring, thinking no one would notice. But his phone rang off the hook. He didn’t go outside for days. “It was one of the most unpleasant moments of my life,” he says.

A couple of years removed, Urschel insists he doesn’t worry that any potential symptoms of CTE—forgetfulness, mood swings, depression—will hinder his career. Sure, as an offensive lineman he absorbed hits to his head. But he points out that just because more than 99% of the brains examined in the study had CTE doesn’t mean more than 99% of all ex-players do. Such studies have a self-selection bias: many players offer up their brains because they think they may be damaged. So how many players does he suspect have CTE? “It’s not epsilon close to zero,” he says. “And it’s not some large constant fraction of 100. You know what I’m saying? It’s bounded away from both.”

Books with titles like Partial Differential Equations in Action and Hierarchical Matrices populate Urschel’s MIT office, along with the usual grad-student fare that fuels late-night research: cans of black beans, sardines and StarKist tuna. Urschel geeks out about the math department’s espresso machine and the equations that fill hallway chalkboards. Math can be as cutthroat as football: Urschel won’t share the subject of his dissertation, lest competition come after it. “But anything on the chalkboard,” he says in the hall, “is fair game.”

Sports teams, which have been staffing up their analytics operations, have come calling with offers. But academic life holds much more appeal. When I ask him to explain the math of the two-point conversion, he does with reluctance. “This is as low-level as you get,” he says. He draws a series of probability tree diagrams in chalk: let’s just say if your team’s down 14 with five minutes to go and scores a touchdown, the coach needs to go for two.

Urschel would rather spend his time promoting math. He visits classrooms around the country. In early May he spoke at the National Math Festival in D.C. He recommends books about calculus via his Twitter feed. “I could obsess over a problem for days, for weeks, thinking of nothing else, the way someone might obsess over a girl,” he writes in his own book. “But no girl I had ever met brought me the singular sense of engagement that I got from proving something difficult.”

He also wants athletes, at all levels, to know they don’t need to compromise their intellect. “The United States, more than any other culture, has the strange marriage of athletics and academics,” Urschel says. “I thought it was important to show that this is something that really can co-exist.” He’s 350 miles from Baltimore but might as well be 35,000. Urschel turns off the office lights, and heads home to eat dinner and finish up some work. More equations await.

John Singleton Will Have Private Funeral On Monday

John Singleton funeral and interment details have been released. We now know the date and location of his services and where he’ll be buried.

Singleton’s service will be observed this Monday at 10 a.m. at the Angelus Funeral Home on Crenshaw Blvd. in the Crenshaw District of South Los Angeles. If the Angelus Funeral Home name sounds familiar, that’s because you might recognize it as the same place that handled Nipsey Hussle’s funeral arrangements.

After services for Singleton, he will be interred at Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills. Yes, it’s the same place where Nipsey, along with numerous other celebrities, is buried.

Speaking of his interment, a family member told TMZ that Monday’s funeral will be closed off to the public. However, a larger event will be held on May 21, but at present the details haven’t been worked out.

In other news about Singleton’s death, TMZ is reporting that the late director’s will was filed in Los Angeles Friday. His oldest daughter, 26-year-old Justice, will get his estate which is valued at $ 3.8 million. The will was drafted in 1993, before his 6 other children were born. They could have a claim to split the assets 7 ways.

The report goes on to say that Singleton, who died of a stroke last month at 51, could also have a trust outside the will. His estate was reportedly valued at around $ 35 million, so the will may not be a full accounting of the assets he left behind.

John Singleton’s Daughter, Mother, Father And Girlfriend Set To Battle Over His Estate

Following the death of John Singleton on Monday at age 51 comes word that his family is set to battle for control of his estate.

Sources connected with the Singleton family tell TMZ that John’s mother, Shelia Ward, is not only up against John’s daughter, Cleopatra, but also his estranged father and girlfriend, the mother of his 1-year-old son.

Last week, Cleopatra filed a motion seeking to block her grandmother’s proposed conservatorship. She claims Ward wants to liquidate all of John’s assets and freeze out his 7 children, the report states.

Singleton’s estate is allegedly worth $ 35 million and Cleopatra fears Sheila will make it impossible for her and others in the family to access what they believe they are rightfully entitled to financially.

John’s mother is his longtime business manager, thus the reason why she filed for the conservatorship after he reportedly fell into a coma last week. But Ward denies plotting to cut her son’s children from his estate.

Cleopatra, meanwhile, doesn’t trust her grandmother and she’s suggesting John’s son, Maasai or his father, Danny be appointed conservators instead of Sheila.

The acclaimed director, who was the first Black male to receive an Oscar nomination, suffered a stroke after experiencing weakness in his legs, and was admitted to the hospital on April 17. He was taken off life support Monday and died a few hours later.

His family issued a statement, saying: “We are sad to relay that John Singleton has died. John passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family and friends. We want to thank the amazing doctors at Cedars-Sinai Hospital for their expert care and kindness and we again want thank all of John’s fans, friends and colleagues for all of the love and support they showed him during this difficult time.” — The Singleton Family.

Remembering the Legacy of Legendary Director John Singleton and his Classic Film “Boyz n the Hood”

Update: 4:45 p.m. EST

According to CNN, John Singleton died on April 29 at 51 years old. His family released the following statement:

“We are sad to relay that John Singleton has died. John passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family and friends. We want to thank the amazing doctors at Cedars-Sinai Hospital for their expert care and kindness and we again want thank all of John’s fans, friends and colleagues for all of the love and support they showed him during this difficult time.”


Hollywood trailblazer John Singleton, who suffered from a stroke and fell into a coma earlier this month, made history when he was just 24 years old with his iconic 1991 film Boyz n the Hood. The groundbreaking movie explored the plight of childhood friends growing up in an inner-city neighborhood stricken by gang violence in South Los Angeles. The film received two Academy Award nominations in 1992, making Singleton both the first African American and youngest person ever to be nominated for Best Director. It also received the nod for Best Original Screenplay. In addition, the film also helped launch the careers of stars like Angela Bassett, Morris Chestnut, and Cuba Gooding, Jr.

At the 2015 American Black Film Festival, Singleton revealed that he had hired a predominantly black crew to make the film as well as a mix of actors and non-actors, some from South LA. “Everyone from the neighborhood was invested in the film. The crew was 97% black,” said the USC School of Cinematic Arts graduate. He described making the film — which was inspired by his real-life friends and the challenges that they experienced in South Central — as “cathartic.” “I wanted to make a film that was quintessentially black American. I think we’ve gotten away from that as filmmakers. We’re too concerned with what others think, not about what’s culturally astute.”

Today, Boyz n the Hood is recognized as one of the most definitive movies of the 90s and an urban classic that continues to resonate with audiences almost 30 years later. “Everything that we dealt with in Boyz n the Hood is still relevant today,” Singleton said. “Black men still feel like they have to prove their masculinity. There’s so much pressure black women and men have to deal with. We’ve become time bombs.” Boyz n the Hood was added to the United States Library of Congress in 2002.

The screenwriter went on to direct a number of other notable films and television series throughout his career, including Poetic JusticeBaby Boy, 2 Fast 2 Furious, the FX crime drama Snowfall, and several episodes of Empire.

Back in 2011, Singleton told BLACK ENTERPRISE that there are fewer opportunities for black directors today to make big-picture films than there were at the start of his career. “I think there is less opportunity now in making big mainstream pictures [for] black filmmakers making films for black audiences,” he said. “It’s harder for us to get a movie made in that vein because they kind of compartmentalized and made it open for just a few people to make pictures.”

Tragically, Singleton suffered from a stroke on April 17 and was placed in intensive care. His mother and business manager, Shelia Ward, filed papers in court requesting conservatorship, stating that Singleton was “unable to provide for his personal needs” or “manage his financial resources,” according to The Associated Press. The court papers also claim that at the time of his stroke, Singleton was “engaged in several business deals” and in the process of signing “a lucrative settlement agreement.” Ward’s claims, however, were publicly refuted by Singleton’s daughter, Cleopatra Singleton, who also opposed the idea of giving her grandmother control over her father’s estate.

At the time of publishing, Singleton was reportedly still on life support and scheduled to be taken off April 29. In a statement, a family spokesperson revealed he had suffered from hypertension. “Like many African Americans, Singleton quietly struggled with hypertension. More than 40% of African American men and women have high blood pressure, which also develops earlier in life and is usually more severe.”

EMPLOYMENT SEARCH UPDATE:

John Singleton’s Boyz n the Hood Was Just the Start of a Fearless, Trailblazing Career

The Oscars So White debacle of 2015 opened a galvanizing conversation about how filmmakers of color might carve out greater opportunity in Hollywood. But John Singleton, who died Monday at age 51 following a stroke, was at the forefront of that battle long before we had a hashtag for it, ushering in a new era of creativity and boldness among black filmmakers. He showed through his work just how boundless the possibilities were.

Singleton’s 1991 debut Boyz n the Hood—starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ice Cube as young men coming of age in South Central Los Angeles, where Singleton himself grew up—dealt frankly with inner-city violence, facing the prevalence of guns and drugs head-on. But to say the movie is “about” violence is to grossly oversimplify it. Singleton, barely into his 20s when he wrote and directed the film, told a story about the tragedy of black men killing one another—but even that was only a small story within a bigger story. Boyz n the Hood is also about parents who strive to raise their kids with sturdy values, about neighborhoods where lawns are kept impeccably tidy as a point of pride. About young people who want to do what’s right, even when circumstances threaten to pull them in another direction. Although Boyz n the Hood is set in a specific time and place, it’s a story that’s universal—and so beautifully and astutely made that it still feels fresh nearly 30 years later.

Pool ARNAL/GARCIA/PICOT/Gamma-Rapho via Getty ImagesActor and rapper Ice Cube with John Singleton, director of ‘Boyz N the Hood’ at Cannes in May 1991 in France.

Boyz n the Hood screened in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes in 1991, where it received a 20-minute standing ovation. It was nominated for two Academy Awards, one for screenplay and one for direction. Singleton was the youngest person to be nominated for Best Director, and also the first African-American. As an emerging black filmmaker dealing with societal issues in the early 1990s, Singleton was hardly alone: Mario Van Peebles, Matty Rich, and Albert and Allen Hughes—among others—hit the scene at the same time, and Spike Lee had already broken through with his 1986 She’s Gotta Have It. But Singleton, unlike some of those other filmmakers (Lee one of the obvious exceptions), forged a long-lasting and varied career for himself as a director, writer and producer, both in film and, more recently, in television. He was one of the creators of Snowfall, set in the early days of the crack cocaine epidemic in Los Angeles in the 1980s.

He forged a career out of taking chances. In 2000 he mounted a remake of the blaxploitation favorite Shaft, starring Samuel L. Jackson, reworking the material into a brutal but effective vigilante story in which a spoiled white rich kid (Christian Bale) struts around thinking he can get away with murdering a black man, until the hero puts him straight. Singleton’s Shaft was a rough breath of fresh air in Rudy Giuliani’s New York—not a picture that pitted black against white, but a revenge fantasy that, in its blunt vision, showed how violence serves no one, and looking for one place (or one race) on which to lay blame is no solution at all.

John Singleton
Nick Ut—APDirector John Singleton touches his new star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2003.

Singleton was just as fearless as a producer of other filmmakers’ work, like Craig Brewer’s atmospheric 2005 love letter to Memphis, Hustle & Flow, starring Terrence Howard as a complex and not always likable small-time drug dealer and pimp. In 2007 Singleton went on to produce Brewer’s even more daring Black Snake Moan, in which Jackson plays a disillusioned, God-fearing juke-joint bluesman who sets out to redeem a sort of fallen angel, played by Christina Ricci. At one point, Jackson’s character chains Ricci’s to a radiator, as part of an effort to rid her of the demons that he believes plague her. That’s a pulpy, sensationalistic image, but once we’re lured in, we see the movie’s soul: This is really a fable about damaged people helping one another to become their best selves.

Singleton saw that kind of complexity everywhere. That’s because it was more important for him to see people than to just tackle issues. In an extraordinary scene from Boyz n the Hood, Laurence Fishburne’s Furious Styles, the father of Gooding’s character, Tre, drives Tre and his friend out to Compton and points out a billboard advertising “cash for your home.” Other young people from the neighborhood, and one old man, gather round as Furious—a veteran who’s now a businessman—uses the billboard to craft a lesson about gentrification and the importance of keeping black neighborhoods alive with black-owned businesses. He also explains how the white power structure distorts the reality of black communities to its benefit.

It’s one of those scenes that’s potentially deadly: Done wrong, it could be didactic and preachy. But Singleton’s conviction, channeled through Fishburne, is a rippling electric charge, and yet another indication of his fearlessness as a filmmaker. Singleton spoke volumes through his movies, and through the projects of others that he helped bring to life. But he also spoke like a man who knew how to listen—one who knew that listening, not just talking, is the way to keep the conversation going, and the only path to fixing a world that can sometimes feel irreparably broken.

John Singleton, ‘Boyz N the Hood’ Director, Dies at 51

REUTERS/Fred Prouser

Oscar-nominated director John Singleton, who is best known for such films as Boyz n the Hood and Poetic Justice, has died at the age of 51, his family said in a statement to The Associated Press.

The director had been in a medically-induced coma at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center since suffering a catastrophic stroke on April 17.

Singleton was the first black filmmaker ever nominated for an Oscar in the best director category—at the age of just 23. He was considered an influential member of a community of black filmmakers who turned the movie industry upside-down in the ’90s along with Spike Lee, Matty Rich, Julie Dash, and F. Gary Gray.

Legendary Director John Singleton Dead At 51

Photo Credit: / PRPhotos.com

NEW YORK (AP) — Director John Singleton, who made one of Hollywood’s most memorable debuts with the Oscar-nominated “Boyz N the Hood” and continued over the following decades to probe the lives of black communities in his native Los Angeles and beyond, has died. He was 51.

Singleton’s family said Monday that he died after being taken off life support, about two weeks after the director suffered a major stroke.

Singleton was in his early 20s, just out of the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, when he wrote, directed and produced “Boyz N the Hood.” Based on Singleton’s upbringing and shot in his old neighborhood, the low-budget production starred Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ice Cube and centered on three friends in South Central Los Angeles, where college aspirations competed with the pressures of gang life. “Boyz N the Hood” was a critical and commercial hit, given a 20-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival and praised as a groundbreaking extension of rap to the big screen, a realistic and compassionate take on race, class, peer pressure and family. Singleton would later call it a “rap album on film.”

For many, the 1991 release captured the explosive mood in Los Angeles in the months following the videotaped police beating of Rodney King. “Boyz N the Hood” also came out at a time when, thanks to the efforts to Spike Lee and others, black films were starting to get made by Hollywood after a long absence. Singleton became the first black director to receive an Academy Award nomination, an honor he would say was compensation for the academy’s snubbing Lee and “Do the Right Thing” two years earlier, and was nominated for best screenplay. (“The Silence of the Lambs” won in both categories). At 24, he was also the youngest director nominee in Oscar history.

[ione_media_gallery id=”759683″ overlay=”true”]

“I think I was living this film before I ever thought about making it,” Singleton told Vice in 2016. “As I started to think about what I wanted to do with my life, and cinema became an option, it was just natural that this was probably gonna be my first film. In fact, when I applied to USC Film School they had a thing that asked you to write three ideas for films. And one of them was called Summer of ’84, which was about growing up in South Central LA.”

In 2002, “Boyz N the Hood’ was added to the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, which called it “an innovative look at life and the tough choices present for kids growing up in South Central Los Angeles.”

None of Singleton’s subsequent movies received the acclaim of “Boyz N the Hood” and he was criticized at times for turning characters into mouthpieces for political and social messages. But he attracted talent ranging from Tupac Shakur to Don Cheadle and explored themes of creative expression (“Poetic Justice”), identity (“Higher Learning”) and the country’s racist past, notably in “Rosewood,” based on a murderous white rampage against a black community in Florida in 1923. He also made the coming-of-age story “Baby Boy,” a remake of the action film “Shaft” and an installment in the “Fast and Furious” franchise, “2 Fast 2 Furious.” More recent projects included the FX crime drama “Snowfall,” which he helped create. Starring Damson Idris, “Snowfall” returned Singleton to the Los Angeles of his youth and the destructive effects of the rise of crack cocaine.

“Drugs devastated a generation. It gave me something to write about, but I had to survive it first,” Singleton told the Guardian in 2017. “It made me a very angry young man. I didn’t understand why I was so angry, but I wasn’t someone who took my anger and applied it inward. I turned it into being a storyteller. I was on a kamikaze mission to really tell stories from my perspective — an authentic black perspective.”

Singleton was married twice, and had five children. Besides his career in movies, Singleton also directed the video for Michael Jackson’s “Remember the Time,” which included Eddie Murphy and Magic Johnson. He cast hip-hop artists and other musicians in many of his films, including Ice Cube in “Boyz N the Hood,” Janet Jackson and Shakur in “Poetic Justice” and Tyrese Gibson in “Baby Boy.”

Singleton’s early success didn’t shield him from creative conflicts or frustration with Hollywood studios. He blamed the commercial failure of “Rosewood” on lack of support from Warner Bros. He fought with producer Scott Rudin during the making of “Shaft” and was furious when Rudin brought in Richard Price to revise the script. He had planned to direct a biopic about Shakur, but quit after clashing with Morgan Creek Productions. In 2014, he chastised the industry for “refusing to let African-Americans direct black-themed films,” but Singleton was pleased in recent years by the emergence of Ava DuVernay, Barry Jenkins, Jordan Peele and others.

“There are these stacks of (films by non-black filmmakers) where black people have had to say, ‘OK, at least they tried,’” he told The Hollywood Reporter in 2018, adding that now blacks were making the films themselves. “What’s interesting when you see ‘Black Panther’ is you realize it couldn’t have been directed by anybody else but Ryan Coogler. It’s a great adventure movie and it works on all those different levels as entertainment, but it has this kind of cultural through-line that is so specific that it makes it universal.”

John Singleton’s Daughter: “My Father Is Not in a Coma”

The family of filmmaker John Singleton is reportedly fighting for control of his business affairs and estate following the 51-year-old movie director’s stroke last week. Singleton’s mother is seeking to be appointed as his temporary conservator and claims that he has fallen into a coma. Singleton’s daughter, however, is disputing that claim as well as her grandmother’s pursuit of conservatorship, which would grant her legal authority to make medical and financial decisions on Singleton’s behalf while he is incapacitated.

Singleton made history at 24 years old when he became both the first African American and youngest person ever to be nominated for Best Director at the 1992 Academy Awards for his debut film Boyz n the Hood (1991). The groundbreaking film also received an Oscars nod for Best Original Screenplay. The screenwriter went on to direct a number of notable films and television series throughout his career, including classics like Poetic Justice and Baby Boy, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and the recent FX crime drama Snowfall.

Earlier this month, it was reported that the South Los Angeles native suffered from a severe stroke on April 17 and was placed in intensive care. At the time, his family released a statement saying that he was under “great medical care.” His mother, Shelia Ward, filed papers in court on Thursday stating Singleton is “currently hospitalized in a coma and is unable to provide for his personal needs” or “manage his financial resources,” according to The Associated Press. The court papers also claim that at the time of his stroke, Singleton was “engaged in several business deals” and in the process of signing “a lucrative settlement agreement.” The papers added that he would take a huge financial loss if a conservator cannot sign the papers on his behalf.

Singleton’s daughter, Cleopatra Singleton, however, is publicly denying her grandmother’s claims, according to a report published in The New York Times Friday. “My father is not in a coma,” she told The NYT. “My father had a stroke on April 17, 2019, and at this point, we are optimistic about a full recovery.” She added that her siblings also oppose the idea of giving their grandmother control over their father’s estate, which is valued at $ 1.4 million. “Myself, several of my siblings, and my father’s father will oppose my grandmother’s application to be appointed my father’s legal conservator,” she said. She added that there will be a hearing “on whether or not my grandmother should become the temporary conservator over my father’s personal and business estate.”

This is not the first time Singleton’s family has been in conflict. Back in 2016, one of his sons wrote an open letter accusing Singleton’s mother of being “an overbearing, manipulative mother who is jealous of anyone else’s happiness.”

John Legend Teams With Beauty Brand Kiehl’s For ‘Made Better’ Campaign [Watch]

John Legend has joined forces with Kiehl’s for its “Made Better” campaign to help spread a vital message about taking care of the environment.

“Kiehl’s has been making wonderful products for years. Now, they’re committed to using more sustainable packaging, natural ingredients and to support environmental causes, which I am glad to see,” Legend tells PEOPLE.

To help bring awareness to the issue, Legend is promoting the brand’s top selling face mask.

“I’m really inspired by the story behind the main ingredient of the mask — Amazonian White Clay — which is fairly traded and collected by local families near the Amazon River in Northern Brazil,” he says. “Kiehl’s provides economic support to the community.”

The EGOT-winning musician says his two kids, 2-year-old daughter Luna and 10-month-old son Miles, inspired him to team up with Kiehl’s.

“This partnership is all about making choices today that leave the world a better place for my kids and future generations,” Legend says.

via PEOPLE:

Besides formulating the deep cleansing face mask with fairly traded ingredients, the brand also uses repurposed coffee bean bag fiber and post-consumer waste for the top label and 30 percent post-consumer recycled plastic for the jar. Plus, in honor of Earth Day 2019, Kiehl’s will donate 100 percent of net profits, up to $ 25,000, of the limited edition mask to theEarth Day Network, which will support the organization’s campaign, The Great Global Clean Up.

“Sustainability is making choices, big or small, every day that leave the planet healthier than we found it,” Legend says. “And it isn’t hard to be eco-conscious. We can make a big difference with the products we buy.”

He added, “Luna knows the word recycling already!” he says. “There’s a recycling bin right next to our trash can and she knows certain things go in the recycling bin, so people can use them again.”

Scroll up and watch Legend promote the campaign via the clip above.

John Oliver and Janet From The Good Place Warn About Mobile Homes on Last Week Tonight

“Mobile homes were perfected by humans, but invented by snails,” explained John Oliver on Last Week Tonight. And because 20 million Americans live in mobile homes he focused Sunday night’s episode on them.

Mobile homes cost significantly less than conventional homes, making them one of the last few affordable housing options around. “It can be hard to tell the difference between mobile homes and manufactured homes,” Oliver said. “Just like it’s hard to tell the difference between Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard. The difference is, like a mobile home, Bryce Dallas Howard is assembled off-site, then placed on wheels and moved to her permanent location.”

Also like Howard and Chastain, mobile homes are popular—so popular that they have become a target for private equity firms, who have started purchasing mobile home sites. As Oliver put it: “The homes of some the poorest people in America are being snapped up by some of the richest people in America.” Mobile home parks have earned a lot of money for the Carlyle Group and Warren Buffett, who owns Clayton mobile homes, which made $ 911 million pre-tax dollars last year. Those unlikely bedfellows have led to conflict in the form of rising rents and fees that have left already impoverished Americans with even fewer options.

For mobile homes owners, the “cars you live in” are reportedly an investment that always go down in value. They are an even worse investment if you don’t own the land that the mobile home is parked on, because “mobile homes are mobile about as much king crabs are actually kings,” said Oliver.

That lack of mobility of tenants is attractive to investors, because they quite literally have a captive audience. As Frank Rolfe, a mobile home investor, put it, buying a mobile home park is like owning “a Waffle House where everyone is chained to the booths,” which Oliver suggested was a good idea for Jordan Peele’s next horror movie.

To warn people about the risks of investing in a mobile home, Oliver and The Good Place’s D’Arcy Carden made an honest ad for potential home buyers.

John Oliver Body Slams WWE Ahead of ‘WrestleMania’

John Oliver put aside politics for Sunday night’s episode of Last Week Tonight, and focused on professional wrestling, or as he calls it, the “only good excuse to wear a onesie.” “That’s right babies, you’re not pulling it off,” Oliver said.

While it may come as a surprise, Oliver claims he is a fan of wrestling and the WWE, which he finds “generally entertaining.” He’s not alone: The WWE has a billion fans on social media and, as per Oliver, earned $ 930.2 million in revenue last year. WrestleMania, WWE’s flagship event, rakes in more viewers than baseball’s World Series.

While WWE is fun to watch, especially compared to every other show that isn’t “a guy exploding through a table,” Oliver says there is a very dark side to the franchise, including the “shockingly high” death rates of pro wrestlers. The figure is so high—even compared to NFL players—that Oliver jokes it’s like “test pilots who lied on their resumes” or “zookeepers who aren’t going to just let some f—ing baboon talk to them like that.” While Oliver doesn’t get into specifics about the early death rate for wrestlers, he does note that WWE founder and owner Vince McMahon doesn’t provide health insurance or worker’s compensation for the stars. That’s because, according to Oliver, the WWE wrestlers are independent contractors who have exclusive contracts with the WWE and can’t work for anyone else, but are not technically employees of the company.

As Oliver explains, it’s because “McMahon plays an a—hole on TV, but is also an a–hole in real life.” According to Oliver, when you take “independent contractors working in a monopolized industry largely free from meaningful oversight who are able to be fired at any time, you wind up with huge potential for unsafe conduct.” To back up the claim, Oliver showed interviews with former wrestlers who pushed themselves to work when they were sick or injured, because if they didn’t they would not be paid and could potentially be fired. According to Oliver, the WWE is now worse than the NFL when it comes to taking care of its athletes. “When you have lost the moral high ground to the f—ing NFL you are morally subterranean,“ Oliver said.

There might be hope, though. Wrestling fans have become increasingly vocal and they genuinely care about the wrestling stars. If fans want McMahon to take better care of his employees—or even recognize them as employees—WrestleMania is coming up and, Oliver pointed out that it could be a good place to fight for change. “The event is live, the crowd is miked, they won’t be able to cut the chants out,” Oliver said. And then to make sure his point was clear “in the preferred language of wrestling of fans,” Oliver played a WWE-style ad pressing for “all your favorite wrestlers” having access to retirement accounts, workers compensation and family and medical leave.

Pastor John Gray’s Alleged Mistress Says They Had More Than An ‘Emotional’ Affair

Source: Robin L Marshall / Getty

Pastor John Gray and his wife Aventer made headlines when it was revealed their seemingly happy marriage was tainted with infidelity. While Pastor Gray assured fans it was only an “emotional” affair, recently discovered audio recordings paint a different picture.

A woman, who remains anonymous, says she and Gray had a physical relationship during an interview with Larry Reid, She says Gray once booked her a room in the same hotel as his wife, but Aventer found out. He left the woman a voicemail warning her that venter had read their text messages. The mystery woman says that she and Gray had Facetime sex, where he would speak in tongues after climaxing. And yes, they two had sex.

She told Reid that she and Gray had been friends for years, but things changed after the woman went through a domestic violence incident that left her vulnerable.

“It started with him—he likes to say—breathing life into me. So he was just there as far as talking to me, pretty much pastoring me, ministering to me. And I called on him to do a favor to a person that I knew that was struggling with some addiction issues. And so I called upon him to help with that. It was an employee of mine. That employee actually wound up speaking with him and it got him on the straight and narrow. So I sent him a text message telling him thank you. And he said, ‘Whatever you need.’ And I was like ‘Well thank you.’ And he said, ‘I’m talking about you.’

John Gray allegedly also offered her financial help when she fell on hard times.

“He would say, ‘The Lord told me that you need some money so go ahead and check your cash app. I already put money in your account.”

He also allegedly confided in her about his marriage and claimed Aventer didn’t satisfy him.

“I ran into an issue financially and he was just like absolutely. and it was a big deal. It was a really big thing. From that moment on, it started from there. It snowballed into ‘I just love you so much. I always loved you. I always thought about you. I always cared about you,’ the woman shared.

“Then he was going through the stuff with his wife and he was saying how he didn’t like her, didn’t love her, that he was never attracted to her, that he only married her because she looked good on paper.”

The woman also had voicemails of what seemed to be John Gray’s voice.

“When you get this message, delete it. My wife saw our text messages from Friday. She knows you were in the same hotel as me and she does not know that I went to your room. She doesn’t remember me leaving. She’s got your number,” he said.

Gray told the public he was only guilty of being  “inappropriate” because he carried on an “emotional” affair. Clearly there’s more to the story.

Listen to her story, below.

John Boehner’s Weed Hypocrisy: D.C. Should ‘Get the Hell Out of the Way’

AUSTIN, Texas—John Boehner’s bizarre transformation into weed enthusiast/businessman reached its apex on Friday when the former Republican House Speaker spoke at South by Southwest.

CNBC Fast Money regular Tim Seymour moderated the early afternoon conversation between Boehner and Kevin Murphy, the founder and CEO of Acreage Holdings, a Canadian-based marijuana investment firm.

Boehner spent his entire tenure as the most powerful lawmaker in the country being “unalterably opposed” to the decriminalization of marijuana but now runs his own lobbying group that advocates “changing federal law to acknowledge states’ rights to regulate and manage cannabis policy.”

John Oliver Fights Back Against Robocalls on Last Week Tonight

John Oliver lashed out against automated phone calls on Sunday night’s episode of Last Week Tonight, suggesting that robocalls are so aggravating that “hatred of them may be the only thing that everyone in America agrees on right now.”

While Oliver admitted that some robocalls are useful, such as automated calls about school closings or prescription reminders, “the vast majority vary from irritating to outright illegal.” It’s not just small or disreputable companies using robocalls, either. According to Oliver, the top robocallers each year include Capital One, Comcast, and Wells Fargo, who use the technology to “chase debts.”

And it’s getting worse, too, according to Oliver, who cited statistics showing that the number of robocalls increased by 57% last year, reaching nearly 50 billion robocalls in total. Some pundits estimate that robocalls will soon account for half of American’s mobile phone calls, Oliver said. The dramatic escalation in the number of robocalls has reportedly made the obnoxious practice the No. 1 complaint to the FCC every year, totaling more than 500,000 complaints a year, about 60% of all complaints received by the FCC. “They are definitely aware of the problem,” Oliver said.

To alert the FCC to exactly how irate people are about the problem, Oliver set up a robocall to all five of its commissioners, including his frequent target FCC chairman Ajit Pai, urging them to address the scourge that is plaguing America’s phone lines. At the click of a big red button, FCC members’ phones began ringing every 90 minutes, playing a recorded message that said, in Oliver’s voice: “Hi, FCC! This is John from customer service. Congratulations! You’ve just won a chance to lower robocalls in America today. Sorry, but I am a live person. Robocalls are incredibly annoying, and the person who can stop them is you! Talk to you again in 90 minutes. Here’s some bagpipe music.”

John Oliver Gives Ivanka Trump a Serious Reality Check: You Got Nothing on ‘Merit’

HBO

On Sunday night, John Oliver dedicated the opening portion of Last Week Tonight to the “series of setbacks” for President Trump this week, from his failure of a summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to the congressional testimony of Trump’s former fixer (and ex-RNC deputy finance chair) Michael Cohen.

“Over the course of the hearing, Cohen described several possible crimes by his former boss, from suborning perjury to campaign-finance violations, and yet, the Republicans primarily used their time to attack Cohen’s credibility,” offered Oliver in a brief recap.

But the HBO host was most riled up by the revelation that President Trump is said to have ordered his former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly to grant Jared Kushner top-secret security clearance—despite the protestations of Kelly and national security officials.

John Oliver Exposes Trump’s ‘National Emergency’ Border Wall BS in ‘Last Week Tonight’ Return

HBO

We last left John Oliver on Nov. 18 of last year, when the Last Week Tonight host addressed the president’s outrageous comments on the sex life of Maureen Scalia, the widow of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. There were also flashy cameos from Gilbert Gottfried (reading portions of the draft Brexit agreement), Armie Hammer, and Oliver’s nemesis Russell Crowe.

So, after three months off, Oliver returned for the sixth season of his Emmy-winning HBO program and kicked things off by addressing President Trump’s national emergency declaration over his pet project, the border wall.

“The major drama since we left has been President Trump’s repeated attempts to get Congress to fund his border wall—including shutting the government down for nearly a month,” Oliver explained, before cutting to the national emergency news. “Yes, according to Trump, the border suddenly constitutes a ‘national emergency…and to be clear, there is zero actual emergency at the border right now. Illegal crossings have been declining for 20 years, and as we’ve talked about before on this show, a wall would be expensive and completely ineffective.”

John Oliver Returns to Explain Brexit on Last Week Tonight

Last Week Tonight returned from its hiatus just in time for John Oliver to explain Brexit, “the playful fun name that has been given to a disaster.” While the U.K. is not scheduled to leave the E.U. until mid-March, Oliver says the planned departure has already had an impact on the nation’s economy, causing the British Pound to drop almost 14%.

Prime Minister Theresa May has spent the last two years locking down the terms of the U.K.’s exit from the E.U., but when she put the details to vote, she was served the biggest defeat in commons history. According to Oliver, one of the main sticking points is Northern Ireland, which is part of the U.K., but shares a border and a long, tragic history with the Republic of Ireland. If you don’t know why a hard border with security checkpoints could reignite tensions between the two Irelands, Oliver suggests “Googling Bloody Sunday or Daniel Day Lewis’s 1990s film output” or playing the chorus of the Cranberries’ song “Zombie.” Based on interviews with experts, people are confident it will be a complete mess, which Oliver notes: “Usually if you think something is going to be that much of a disaster you need to see Will Smith in blue face.”

There is also a chance that the U.K. will be forced to leave the EU without a deal in place, the so-called “no-deal Brexit.” According to Oliver, a no-deal Brexit would result in some “manageable annoyances,” but could also lead to more challenging issues like shortages of medication. Medicine shortages are not a problem that Brits are used to having, as, according to Oliver, Brits’ problems are usually limited to hearing “Americans mispronouncing the word ‘vitamins’, not having enough beans for breakfast and having to wait 20 years for another royal wedding.”

Almost every form of Brexit is anticipated to have some negative impacts on Britain’s economy. According to reports cited by Oliver, Brexit under Theresa May’s plan would result in an economy that is 3.9% smaller, while a no-deal Brexit could result in an economy 9.3% smaller. Oliver points that Britain is opting for these scenarios. “Britain is basically Pompeii, if Pompeii had voted for the volcano,” he said.

Unfortunately, Oliver thinks a second referendum wouldn’t necessarily work, because the situation is too complex for a yes-no vote. Even the first referendum was a terrible idea, because the government punted it to the voters, which Oliver notes, is not their job. The voters elected people to make informed choices about difficult decisions on their behalf. It’s like if you went to the doctor and asked, “Should your appendix leave or remain?” Oliver said.

According to Oliver, the politicians need to admit that the first referendum was fatally flawed and Brexit should be cancelled. That is unlikely to happen, though, and England is determined to “step firmly down on the rake of history” and leave the E.U. with “a great deal of confusion about how horses can go on holiday.”

John Oliver Booed on Colbert for Admitting Trump Could Be Re-Elected in 2020

Scott Kowalchyk/CBS

Before he makes his long-awaited return to HBO this coming Sunday, John Oliver kicked off the week on Monday with a sit-down with his old Daily Show colleague Stephen Colbert.

Asked if he’s “feeling good” with high confidence heading into the new season, Oliver laughed and replied, “Confidence high? No. My confidence is never high. Self-loathing high, concern astronomic.” When Colbert noted that Oliver is returning just after what could be the halfway point of Donald Trump’s presidency—saying, “the end is in sight”—he elaborated on those feelings.

“I definitely don’t have that kind of optimism. To say we’re halfway through his presidency I think is to ignore the concept of second term possibility. We are two to six years away from the end his presidency,” Oliver said. As audience members began to boo, he added, “Oh, wow. Are there some big Trump 2024 fans in here?”

Before he makes his long-awaited return to HBO this coming Sunday, John Oliver kicked off the week on Monday with a sit-down with his old Daily Show colleague Stephen Colbert.

Asked if he’s “feeling good” with high confidence heading into the new season, Oliver laughed and replied, “Confidence high? No. My confidence is never high. Self-loathing high, concern astronomic.” When Colbert noted that Oliver is returning just after what could be the halfway point of Donald Trump’s presidency—saying, “the end is in sight”—he elaborated on those feelings.

“I definitely don’t have that kind of optimism. To say we’re halfway through his presidency I think is to ignore the concept of second term possibility. We are two to six years away from the end his presidency,” Oliver said. As audience members began to boo, he added, “Oh, wow. Are there some big Trump 2024 fans in here?”

Direct And Unfiltered: John Dingell’s Popular Health Care Tweets

Former Rep. John Dingell, who died Thursday, was known for his strong opinions during his nearly 60 years in Congress. And even after leaving Congress, he continued to express his views through a lively, partisan — and sometimes earthy — Twitter account that attracted a keen following of more than 265,000 supporters and critics.

Although his posts dealt with a wide variety of issues, Dingell’s longtime devotion to improving health care was a frequent topic.

Here is a small sampling of his musings on health care. Click on the examples to see the full post and retweets.

From his many years championing health reform in Congress, Dingell could offer a unique historical perspective of the efforts to expand coverage, a quest he said would make “my pop” proud.

Dingell took great pride in the passage of the Affordable Care Act. He acknowledged it wasn’t perfect. “The only perfect law was handed to Moses on stone tablets by God himself.”

He had no patience with Republican lawmakers’ efforts to repeal and replace the ACA.

And he didn’t take kindly to efforts by “knaves and know-nothings” in recent years to add work requirements to Medicaid programs.

He clearly enjoyed jousting with friends and foes on Twitter.

Emily Blunt recalled predictions that she would divorce John Krasinski

Say it isn’t so!

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are one of Hollywood’s golden couples, making our hearts melt on the regular.

And from their cheering each other on during award season to his sweet reaction to seeing her as Mary Poppins for the first time (according to Emily, ‘he’s still crying now’), these two are couple goals to the absolute max.

This week, the couple made news at the SAG awards, with Emily taking home the Supporting Actress gong for her role in A Quiet Place, John’s directional debut.

But while honouring her husband over her win, Emily also took the time to reminisce about the divorce predictions that people gave them on the news that they were doing a film together.

‘You go into this process not knowing what it’s going to be like,’ she explained of their joint project. ‘A lot of people were like, “You’re going to be divorced by the end of it,” but we were so much closer.’

‘I’m going to share this completely with my husband John Krasinski because this entire experience of doing this with you has completely pierced my heart directly,’ she announced in her acceptance speech. ‘You are a stunning filmmaker, I’m so lucky to be with you and to have done this film with you.

‘Thank you for giving me the part, you would have been in major trouble if you hadn’t, so you didn’t really have an option, but thank you,’ she continued. ‘And thank you to the two little poems in our life, our daughters Hazel and Violet, who will have to be at least 45 before they can see this film,’ she joked, ‘but they will be proud of you nonetheless.’

These two!

John Legend Untangles Chrissy Teigen’s Braid in the Cutest Insta

Just when we thought Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s marriage couldn’t get any more perfect, she posts a video and proves Us wrong.

On Sunday, January 20, Chrissy Teigen posted two Instagram stories that showed John standing behind her, completely focused on his task at hand: untangling his wife’s hair. In the videos, she’s seen sitting back at times laughing and at others cringing in pain.

“John gonna kill u,” she wrote in post directed at her hairstylist that created the look, Glen Coco (we assume named after the Mean Girls character). The super-secure ‘do was a half-up French braid that Teigen wore with her hair in long waves to Chicago West’s first birthday party.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend

Now get ready to cue the awwwwwwws. In the video, John says, “this is very difficult,” which she returns with a sweet, “I love you,” that he reciprocates. Could they be any more adorable?

“SORRY @johnlegend for always having to take out my complicated hairstyles,” the hairstylist wrote in his own Instagram post that showed Teigen in a long leopard-print coat and oversized shades behind Luna, who’s carrying stuffed animals and sporting a pair of Mini Mouse ears.

In the second video, the All of Me singer brings in reinforcements in the form of spray from family friend Jen Atkin’s hair product line, Ouai. He mists her hair and goes back in right before she calls out, “ow!”

This cute post-party hair dilemma is so relatable, if only we all had a John Legend-like husband to help in these moments of need. And if he wanted to serenade us while he did it, that would be OK with Us.

Pete Davidson Jokes About Suicide Threat With John Mulaney on SNL

NBC

When we last saw Pete Davidson on Saturday Night Live before the holidays, he was introducing Miley Cyrus as musical guest. It was the 25-year-old comedian’s way of letting viewers know that he was OK—and perhaps not yet ready to perform comedy—after threatening suicide on Instagram and prompting both the NYPD and ex-fiancée Ariana Grande to show up at 30 Rock to confirm he was safe.

Davidson was back in fighting shape this week on the show’s first episode of 2019, appearing in several sketches including the cold open next to Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump. But when he sat down for one of his frequent appearances on “Weekend Update” towards the end of the episode, he didn’t really want to talk about everything that went down.

“As you know, I’ve had a really crazy month and I want to talk about something that matters a lot to me,” Davidson said. When Colin Jost asked if he was talking about “mental health,” he said no. He wanted to talk about Clint Eastwood’s The Mule.

Spider-Man, John Wick 3, and all the other new movie trailers from this past week

New Trailers

Like I told you last week, the first half of January lacked any exciting trailers, but that was about to change. And that’s exactly what happened. In a matter of days, we saw not one, but two Spider-Man: Far From Home trailers — yes, the international version does count. Moreover, John Wick fans will be excited to see the first footage for Chapter 3. And then there’s the new Ghostbusters to talk about.

However, when it comes to new movies, it’s going to be a rather boring week at the box office, with M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass being the only blockbuster-sized movie launching this week.

Chrissy Teigen thanks John Legend for supporting her ‘Instagram dreams’

OHMYGOSSIP — Chrissy Teigen has thanked her husband John Legend for helping to make her “Instagram dreams” come true.
The 33-year-old model – who has kids Luna, two, and seven-month-old Miles with the chart-topping musician – has taken to the photo-sharing website to jokingly praise John for consistently helping her to capture perfect, Instagram-ready images.
Alongside a short video clip of John photographing her, Chrissy – who has more than 21 million followers on the platform – wrote: “thank u for always supporting my Instagram dreams. This train only moves because of you(r phone) .. you are the tracks that lay the foundation .. creating a direct path to hope and possibilities of likes and curated content. what u do is important. I will never take u for granted, my king (sic)”
Meanwhile, Chrissy previously claimed that the internet has changed her life.
The model admitted that her use of Twitter and other social media platforms has changed the public’s perception of her.
She shared: “Guys have always come up to me since I did Sports Illustrated. But now, they all say the same thing: ‘My girlfriend loves you.’ And I couldn’t be happier.”
Chrissy also claimed that one of the keys to her relationship with John is that they have contrasting personalities.
She explained: “He’s quieter than me, which isn’t saying much. But he’s more thoughtful, whereas I’m spur of the moment.
“I can’t hide things very well. If I feel it, you’ll see it on my face, but he’s better at covering. I was never that big into music. Still to this day, I’m very Top 40. And I’m more emotion-based than him. I can see everybody’s side of an argument.”

John Krasinski Was Emily Blunt’s Biggest Fan at the Golden Globes and This Cheering Meme Is Proof

Though neither John Krasinski nor Emily Blunt won awards at the 2019 Golden Globes, the married couple’s perfection still managed to shine through the television screen.

Blunt, who was nominated for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy at the 76th Golden Globes for her revival of Julia Andrews’ iconic character in Mary Poppins Returns, took the stage with the original film’s legendary Dick Van Dyke.

And when cameras panned the audience, they found Krasinski, cheering on his wife with the most enthusiasm. Blunt reacted with a sweet smile, capturing the hearts of everyone watching.

It’s not the first time a celebrity’s cheers from the audience have become sensational on the internet, though. It’s hard to forget the meme of Meryl Streep’s audience cheer from the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards, or her reenactment of the meme at the 2018 Oscars. Krasinski’s cheers for Blunt—who starred with Streep in The Devil Wears Prada—were easy to compare.

Twitter users immediately fell in love with Krasinski’s romantic and emphatic support. The pair got married in 2010, and have provided evidence to many fans that true love can exist in Hollywood.

Ravens want John Harbaugh back as sides continue contract talks

The Ravens and head coach John Harbaugh are continuing contract discussions, and all indications are that Baltimore wants him back, league sources told ESPN. But when the Ravens kicked off Sunday’s AFC wild-card game against the Chargers, no deal had been agreed to — and it will leave open the possibility that any of the eight NFL teams with head-coaching vacancies still could reach out to Baltimore to inquire about Harbaugh’s availability. In fact, two NFL teams with current head-coaching openings are strongly considering that possibility, according to a league source. But Baltimore has not given any indication it is willing to part ways with Harbaugh. The Ravens still are determined to try to work out a new deal this offseason for Harbaugh, whether that’s in a week or a month. If the sides can’t get a deal done, Harbaugh would enter the last year of his contract and then be on track to be a coaching free agent at this time next…

Sherlock Holmes, John Watson and a Christmas gift of friendship

Getty

Every year, at the close of the year, I read Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle,” and I ask myself a question: Have two characters in literature ever loved each other more than Sherlock Holmes and John Watson did? 

We often find the greatest potency in what I think of as semi-official capacities. An official capacity would be, say, your marriage. That person you are married to is meant to be, so we think, your main “go-to.” We assume there is potency in straightforward, forceful statement. But have you ever noticed that little in this life is more potent than a question, and that a question is always at least one statement? Usually it’s many statements at once. “Do you love me?” can also mean, “You might not love me now,” or “Maybe you once loved me and stopped doing so,” or “It’s conceivable that you’ve never loved me.” What if there’s no greater love than friendship, and it is friendship that is the root of any great love, no matter the form that love takes? These are other questions I ask myself when I read “The Adventures of the Blue Carbuncle” at Christmastime, and it leads to a statement: This is how the best of relationships ought to be.

If you’re not familiar with this story, let us imagine that we are sitting somewhere together—in a tavern, say—and you are about to learn something heartening. The story first appeared in the January 1892 edition of The Strand, Doyle’s standard stomping grounds for his Holmes tales, and was later collected in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes for book publication in October of that year.

Marketing Mogul Bozoma Saint John Gets New Docuseries

Bozoma Saint John is best known for displaying her marketing chops at massive corporations including, PepsiCo, Beats, Apple, Uber, and currently Endeavor. The chief marking officer will now grace our television screens in a completely different way, showcasing her own brand with a new documentary series on Starz Network entitled, Being Badass.

It is said to be “a mix between Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, Mister Rogers, and The Oprah Winfrey Show.” In a statement recently released to Fast Company, Saint John said the series’ underlying message is “to show up wholly as ourselves, especially for anyone who feels ‘other-ed’ and that you don’t have the allowance to be fully yourself.” She added, “I’ve had a lot of great feedback from different types of people who have said they appreciate that I’m able to be exactly who I am in all these spaces, even if I’m the one and only.”   

This show aims to be aspirational, inspirational, and motivational, but not without its highs and lows. Topics will span across her business and personal life and will showcase her love of fashion and address the challenges of being a single, working mother, and widowed. Saint John’s husband passed away over five years ago after a battle with cancer. Saint John, who graced the cover of BLACK ENTERPRISE last year, will interview folks in similar situations to gain their perspectives.

Papa John's

Bozoma Saint John (center) on the cover of the January/February 2017 edition of Black Enterprise Magazine

“I don’t agree with the line that says you walk into an office and you leave yourself outside,” Saint John continued. “I hope this show inspires people to celebrate all the parts of themselves that perhaps are rough around the edges. There’s something we can learn from each other, even if we’ve been through some things that are tough, or we love things that we think are frivolous. All those things are worthy of celebration and exploration.”

In addition to sharing her bold personal stories, there is also a tech element to this: Saint John will dive into her previous positions at Uber and Apple and where she believes innovation will happen next.

The show is set to air next year but is currently in production.

Pastor John Gray Defends Gifting His Wife A $200K Lamborghini For Their Anniversary

John Gray

Source: OWN

Ever since Lakewood pastor John Gray gifted his wife a $ 200,000 Lamborghini truck to celebrate their marriage vow renewal and anniversary, he’s been catching heat for it all over social media. Now he’s fighting back.

In an Instagram video taken at the celebration Sunday, Gray, now the pastor at Relentless Church in Greenville, South Carolina, led his wife to a bow-wrapped car and handed her the keys while saying “Lamborghini Urus.”

He wrote on Instagram Tuesday, “God helped me to make my wife’s dream come true. Why not? She’s made mine come true!” On Thursday in a Facebook Live video, Gray stated that vehicle was purchased with “not a nickel, not a penny” of his salary from the church or other church money.

He said he saved money for years and drew on a variety of sources financially including his second book deal and the fourth season of The Book Of John Gray, his television show on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN network to pay for the vehicle. He also shared the story of how on his honeymoon eight years ago, he and his wife Aventer were so broke that they had to share a shrimp cocktail.

Aventer defended her husband on Sunday on Instagram saying, “I don’t see anyone screaming about how basketball players drive what they do while you paying $ $ $ to see them play in arenas and on fields. We don’t live for people! We love for God!”

She added, “[He] gives away cars, full houses of furniture, clothes off his back!”

John Kelly Is Out As Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff

SAUL LOEB/AFP/Getty

After serving at the unsteady right hand of President Donald Trump for the past one-and-a-half years, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is leaving around the end of year, the president announced Saturday, concluding a tumultuous tenure as the administration’s “alpha dog” after the results of a midterm election put the president’s legislative agenda—and, potentially, his administration—in jeopardy.

In doing so, Kelly became the latest in a long string of casualties in a West Wing rife with dysfunction, hostility and vicious infighting between factions of the president’s senior staff.

Speaking to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House before leaving for the Army-Navy football game in Philadelphia, Trump announced that “John Kelly will be leaving toward the end of the year” adding that the former four-star general is a “great guy.”

TV’s Take on the Hit Podcast Dirty John Is a Dirty Shame

True crime never goes out of style, but only in recent years has it become such a highbrow form. By embedding interrogations of identity, psychology and institutional corruption in real mysteries, the makers of Serial, The Jinx and Making a Murderer unleashed a deluge of tawdry tales with redeeming social value — or at least a veneer of it. But Dirty John, last year’s hit podcast about a California con artist written and hosted by Los Angeles Times writer Christopher Goffard, always felt different. A gripping work of nonfiction storytelling laced with chilling archival audio, it was framed more as domestic noir than as an inquiry into any larger issue.

A better TV adaptation might have excavated the story’s ample subtext about romance, faith and the failure of law enforcement to protect women from dangerous partners. But Bravo’s Dirty John, premiering on Nov. 25, leans into the salaciousness, splitting the difference between soap opera and crime re-enactments in the hysterical style of America’s Most Wanted. Directed by Jeff Reiner (The Affair), from a script by Desperate Housewives alum Alexandra Cunningham, it may be a conscious attempt at camp. But the show doesn’t even succeed at that; its incompetence isn’t entertaining.

The great Connie Britton, whose participation in this project is mystifying, plays heroine Debra Newell, a wealthy, well-preserved, churchgoing Southern California interior designer pushing 60. Though she’s been divorced four times, Debbie is still seeking her soul mate — and she finds him, or so she thinks, in hunky anesthesiologist John Meehan (Eric Bana). Fresh off a streak of bad dates, she overlooks some strange behavior on his part and shrugs off the suspicions of her daughters, Veronica (Juno Temple) and Terra (Julia Garner). As John works to isolate Debbie from her family, they dig into his murky past. The picture of a double life that emerges, bit by bit, would turn Don Draper’s whiskey-fortified blood to ice.

But this isn’t Mad Men. Goffard’s story incorporates so many elements poorly suited to a visual medium — phone calls, correspondence, the reporter’s own reflections — that they seem to overwhelm the script, which often awkwardly copies and pastes exchanges from the source material. A heated email becomes a ridiculous confrontation. Flowery phrases lifted from Goffard’s narration issue from the mouths of characters who aren’t poets.

Cunningham could’ve expanded the podcast’s intriguing but limited psychological portraits of Debbie and John. Instead, she flattens every character: Terra’s babyish utterances defy belief; Veronica is a spoiled brat; John is pure evil. Forced to imitate Newell’s high-pitched purr, even Britton does little to complicate a heroine defined by gullibility. Blandly luxurious sets and scenes that feel rushed bolster the impression that no one involved in this production wanted to spend a second longer on it than necessary.

All true-crime stories have to contend with the perennial criticism that the genre is exploitative. The best ones justify their existence by raising awareness of injustice or even, like Errol Morris’ 1988 film The Thin Blue Line, ensuring that justice is served. The worst mine real people’s pain for profit.

Goffard evidently had enough compassion for his subjects to eschew full-on schlockiness. If the creative forces behind Bravo’s Dirty John had felt the same obligation, they might have ended up with a decent show. What they’ve made instead fails as TV, sure — but it also fails the women whose lives have been affected by predatory men.

John Oliver Exposes Acting AG Matt Whitaker’s ‘Completely Disqualifying’ Past

John Oliver typically starts his HBO show with a “quick recap of the week.” But the Last Week Tonight host spent longer than usual on Sunday digging into the man President Donald Trump has chosen to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

After running down some highlights from the midterm elections, Oliver explained that on Wednesday Trump “did the thing that we’ve all kind of been bracing for,” finally firing Sessions and appointing Matt Whitaker to be his acting replacement. “And everything about that appointment is weird,” Oliver said, noting that instead of promoting Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein he decided to “shove white Shrek into the job.”

“And that is troubling for any number of reasons,” he continued, “from the fact that he’s been a regular critic of the Mueller investigation to his questionable judicial philosophy.” But the “most eye-catching” thing in Whitaker’s background, Oliver said, was the patent company that he served on the advisory board for and is now under investigation by the FBI for allegedly defrauding its clients. “World Patent Marketing was a scam,” he declared.

DWTS’ John Schneider Gets Emotional Over His Strained Relationship with His Children

John Schneider is hoping he can mend his strained relationship with his three children.

In an exclusive clip of Monday’s Dancing with the Stars, the Dukes of Hazzard alum, who played Bo Duke on the comedy series from 1979-85, gets emotional while explaining how country music and DWTS has affected his life.

“What country music means to me is it’s three chords and the truth and it shines a light on things that happen in everyday life that are wonderful, not so wonderful, and that are heart-wrenching,” Schneider, 58, says.

“I’ve been going through a divorce now for four years and it’s awful. The worst part about it is that it’s wedged itself in between my three adult children and myself. Nothing I can do except hope one day one of my kids will call me up or show up. I look in the crowd every Monday thinking maybe tonight, maybe tonight.”

“If it weren’t for this music and now Dancing with the Stars, I don’t think I can survive it,” he admits. “It gives me great joy at a time where I desperately needed it.”

Earlier on in the season, Schneider briefly spoke towards his relationship with his children. whom he is not on speaking terms with.

“I’m hoping that I will do my family proud, I’ll do my love over there proud,” said Schneider told host Erin Andrews, referencing his girlfriend, Alicia, and added, “and maybe my children will speak to me again.”

After 21 years of marriage, Schneider’s estranged wife Elvira “Elly” Schneider filed for divorce in Los Angeles County on Nov. 14, 2014. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split, according to court documents.

In September 2016, Schneider — he shares adult children Leah, Chasen, and Karis with Elvira — was ordered to pay his ex $ 18,911 every month, TMZ reported.

But in June, Schneider was sentenced to three days behind bars in the Los Angeles County Jail in June for failure to pay more than $ 150,000 in owed alimony payments to Elvira. The actor was released on the same day as his initial booking because of California’s overcrowded prison system, but his legal woes were not done with that.

Schneider was also ordered to serve an additional 120 hours behind bars for contempt, but that sentence was suspended by the court on the condition that he fulfills a four-part list of conditions, including filing back taxes to help clear title to their property in Apple Valley so that it could be transferred to her, paying his ex half of his owed earnings from Maven Entertainment, and offering certain financial disclosures before the end of the year.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.

John Oliver Blasts the Trump Administration’s Immigration Policies as ‘Old-Timey Racism’

“Immigration is a system that brought you me!” John Oliver reminded his viewers on Sunday’s Last Week Tonight, but he promised it won’t happen again.

As the midterm elections approach, President Donald Trump has put immigration back in the spotlight, and pledged to send U.S. troops to the southern border because, as Oliver described it, “Young strong men were coming for our women.”

“That’s such old-timey racism that I’m genuinely amazed that it doesn’t turn black and white while he talks like Pleasantville in reverse,” Oliver said.

Instead of focusing on the soldiers, Oliver opted to look back at something Trump’s administration previously did—the family separation policy, which led to nearly 2,000 children being taken from their parents in a six-week period.

The policy, which even Trump called “so sad,” was even more “malicious and incompetent” than we knew, according to Oliver. He emphasized that government entities that were responsible for tracking and reuniting the children with their parents were “incomplete and inconsistent” and “vulnerable to human error.”

“You shouldn’t be able to lose children in a government system as easily as in a Chuck E. Cheese ball pit,” he said. According to Oliver, the government has admitted 220 children have yet to be reunited with their families. Just two weeks ago they “found 14 more” children who were missing and apparently no one in the government was aware. As Oliver notes, when 12 boys were stuck in a cave in Thailand, there were live cameras and Elon Musk “was sending submersibles and calling rescuers pedophiles.” While Oliver added that he was not advocating for a repeat of that scenario, he would like people to pay attention.

According to Oliver, the answer as to how the U.S. implemented this separations policy was “incompetently and cruelly,” and as for the why, he has an idea. Since the Trump administration claims that family separation was not implemented as a deterrent for immigration, Oliver has a different theory: “It’s a hard right turn toward demonizing immigration that some might call racist and some might be wrong about.”

According to Oliver, while immigrants are less likely to commit crimes once they cross a border, the Trump administration has characterized immigrants as “violent gang members, known criminals, and people from the Middle East.” Oliver suggested that the administration should just add to the list other things they hate, for instance “Planned Parenthood, gays who want wedding cakes, Black Santa, and a 30-foot Nancy Pelosi.”

As Trump orders troops to the border, he has also suggested he may re-implement the family separation policy. However, Oliver pointed out that while surrounding the border with “randomly firing flamethrowers and snakes that had been trained to stand up whenever anyone approached” might work to deter immigration, “we don’t do things like that because that’s not supposed to be who we f—- are.”
