Neil Jones wanted to protect wife Katya during Strictly kiss scandal

OHMYGOSSIP — Neil Jones’ first reaction when his wife Katya Jones told him she had kissed her ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ partner Seann Walsh was to make sure she was OK.
The ballroom professionals’ marriage was rocked last year when the Russian dancer was pictured locking lips with comedian Seann after a night out drinking in a pub, but Neil insists that when she told him what had happened his “natural” response was to want to protect his spouse.
In a joint interview on ITV show ‘Lorraine’, Neil, 36, said: “For me it was a major shock, and I appreciated that Katya told me before I saw it. ‘Strictly’ were fantastic with me and with us all, they were supporting us all and helping us.
“It was that shock factor, and then for me I was actually more worried about Katya because I could see what was going to happen, and I was like as long as she’s going to be OK. It was a natural reaction, of course [I love her] because we’ve been together for a long time.”
Katya, 29, accepts it was a tough moment in their relationship but insists she and Neil – who she married in August 2013 – are now stronger than ever.
She said: “There was lots of different emotions, of course, and we’ve gone through that. And I think now that we’ve moved on, you might even forgot how you felt at that moment … Look, 10 years of being together and that’s not for nothing. We’ve gone through so many things together.”
Neil added: “The trust is there.”
Katya has nothing but regret when she thinks about her kiss with Seann, 33, but insists it is time for people to move on from the smooch because she and Neil have.
She said: “[I regret it]. Of course, you just don’t realise the extent of the damage and the people you affect, families, my family, that moment you don’t. But then it’s the whole show, obviously that was horrible, all the professionals and dancers were constantly asked about it and that was unnecessary from me, absolutely.
“Even the fact that we’re still talking about it. It’s like, we’re over it, I think everyone else is over it, let’s just move on.”
Echoing his wife’s sentiment, Neil added: “I was getting messages on Instagram saying, ‘You’ve got to leave her’. But that’s what’s wrong, you know? I always feel that’s what’s wrong at the moment, everybody just looks at things, it’s a quick relationship, we’ve been together for 10 years. For me, it was just important, the understanding, I just needed to speak to Katya, I just needed to be with her in that moment. For me, I felt they overreacted.
“There’s worse things in the world going on at the moment. Every time it keeps coming up, anything happens and they mention it, I’m like, ‘Come on…’”
Asked by host Lorraine Kelly if she’s still in contact with Seann, Katya said: “No.”
To show the world that their marriage is very much on track, Neil and Katya are touring their own show ‘Somnium: A Dancer’s Dream’ which is inspired by their romance and their life together.
Explaining the inspiration behind the dance extravaganza, Neil said: “It’s based on our story. There’s moments in, within the story, it’s not about what happened there, it’s about a World Championships.”

Felicity Jones Talks Flying High at Dior’s Circus

ROLL UP, ROLL UP: One of the guests at the circus tent setting for the Christian Dior show Monday afternoon felt right at home. “Rogue One” actress Felicity Jones had just a week ago wrapped filming “The Aeronauts,” in which she plays a circus performer and hot air balloon pilot.
“It’s a real magical adventure story, so this is totally fitting,” she said. Even the acrobatics seen during the show were nothing to scare the rising performer — the role saw her shooting in a hot air balloon.
“It’s pretty amazing, actually, because you go up so gently it’s not quite as scary as you think it’s going to be because it’s a slow incline, but then suddenly you’re 2,000 feet up looking out of the balloon and thinking, ‘Wow, it is actually quite high up here.’”
Maria Grazia Chiuri had called on acrobatic troupe Mimbre to perform as part of the circus-inspired show, framing the models as they walked the runway. “She wanted Mimbre to come with a team of all-female acrobats,” Lina Johansson, artistic director and cofounder of the London-based company, who began work choreographing the project with 18 performers in November, explained backstage before the show.
“Maria Grazia is so inspiring

Shanae Jones is Using Herbalism and Hip-Hop to Change the Way You Think of Tea and Holistic Health

Meet Shanae Jones, an herbalist and the founder of Ivy’s Tea Co., an organic line of locally-sourced, handcrafted teas, tisanes, and herb-infused sweeteners. Inspired by childhood teatime with her grandmother, Jones launched Ivy’s Tea Co., and combined hip-hop and herbalism so she could teach herbalism in a fun and refreshing way—while making the holistic health and tea market more inclusive.

Consumers of Ivy’s Tea have purchased teas to help with a variety of ailments such as the flu and severe menstrual cramps:

“Our ‘Sister Sister 2’ tea relies on stinging nettles, a mineral-rich herb, to help women manage menstrual pain,” said Jones. “We’ve also had a customer use our ‘What the Flu?’ tea to make Elderberry syrup for herself and her daughter. ‘What the Flu?’ is a blend of elderberries, ginger root, and turmeric to help support the immune system, especially during the fall and winter seasons when we’re resting less, eating fewer leafy vegetables and getting much less sun than usual — these all help improve the immune system, too.”

In addition to selling herbal tea, Jones provides a wealth of online education and provides philanthropic support to make an impact on the lives of others—specifically in the black community. If Jones has her way, you’ll never look at a cup of tea the same way again. We caught up with Jones to talk tea culture, benefits, and holistic medicine myths and misconceptions.

herbalism

What makes Ivy’s Tea Co. so unique? 

Consider this: What if your hot beverage connected with your identity? Most of us cannot say that our experience buying tea (or coffee or kombucha or any other wellness beverage for that matter) really connects with who we are. Current herbal tea companies on the market are just not inclusive — at all. The others that verge outside of typical western herbal remedies bring to the market what I would call wellness porn — really pushing a strict and regimented lifestyle that includes hours of meditation, ritualism, and yoga, but some people just want herbal tea. And Ivy’s Tea Co. provides that. We’re committed to bringing -lack culture to the herbal tea company industry.

Beyond that, our teas are high quality, organic, and hand-blended by an herbalist. Many come to our site intrigued by the catchy product names (e.g., Green Bae, Pusha Tea, #TrapTea Holiday Gift Set) and funny product descriptions, but they all walk away informed about some aspect of herbalism and that’s what makes us so unique.

Our most popular selling tea is our staple tea and the first tea we brought to market, Rise & Grind, a black tea with coconut and vanilla. It’s a full leaf black tea full of flavor with a hint of coconut, the vanilla rounds out the sip.

Let’s talk about some of the myths or misconceptions of holistic medicine. If a person has a certain illness, like high blood pressure, do they have to choose holistic medicine in lieu of prescribed medicine? Or can they choose both?

Of course, you can choose both. That’s true holistic living — being balanced in accordance with your own body and lifestyle. With the right health care professional, an informed consumer will find that holistic medicine can work well with prescriptions from your doctor. Sometimes, there are contraindications between herbs and prescribed meds, which is why it’s so important to talk to your doctor before you begin any herbal medicine regimen. On the flip side, holistic medicine is not always taking herbal medicine, sometimes it’s meditation, journaling, spending more time with family and friends, taking a vacation, etc.

Ivy’s Tea

Ivy’s Tea

Does alternative medicine only offer placebo effects?

No way. I’ve seen alternative medicine work; not just for myself, but for others. It requires time, patience, and a lifestyle change. Take something like insomnia for example. Many people end up using herbs to treat the symptoms and not the cause. While you can use conventional medicine to treat symptoms, most times, herbal medicine just doesn’t work like that.

Can you share your perspectives on the importance of holistic medicine, especially in communities of color who suffer more from heart disease, diabetes, etc?

Holistic living, particularly as it pertains to simple dietary changes, for example, can make significant improvements in the lives of black and brown people. We’re not even talking about going to the health food store and spending money on expensive essential oils or superfood powders. We’re talking about eating more fresh fruits and vegetables, adding garlic and ginger to the diet, using more spices, etc. Holistic living can be one of the most affordable ways to improve the quality of life.

As it pertains to heart disease and obesity, your diet can change your DNA – your diet includes what you eat, but also what you see, what you speak, and what you feel. Making that change with holistic living from the inside out (or the outside in, depending on your circumstances) can be the biggest act of self-love and self-care.

Kim Jones Debuts Dior Men’s Spring Collection at Tokyo Pop-Up

BUZZING INTO TOKYO: Roughly 100 customers lined up outside Isetan’s men’s building in Shinjuku on Wednesday morning, waiting for the doors to open so they could get their hands on the spring 2019 men’s capsule collection that Kim Jones designed for Dior. It is the first offering released by the designer since he took over as artistic director.
For the capsule, Jones tapped New York-based artist Brian Donnelly, known professionally as Kaws, to reimagine the brand’s classic bee motif, as well as to create a new Dior logo specially for the collection.
At the pop-up, customers can purchase T-shirts to be customized in front of them with a spray gun that dispenses permanent ink in the chosen design. They are also printed with the date and the number of their purchase.
Exclusive to the Tokyo store are items that feature the Kaws bee in pink rather than yellow, including T-shirts, sweatshirts and small leather goods. Also available are Japanese selvedge denim jeans embroidered with the traditional boro method, and the iconic Dior Saddle bag, which Jones has reinterpreted for men for the first time.

Seann Walsh seen out for the first time since awkward run in with Neil Jones who banned wife Katya from speaking to him

SEANN Walsh was seen for the first time since his awkward run in with Neil Jones at a red carpet bash on Monday night.

The Strictly star, who was caught snogging Neil’s wife Katya earlier this month, headed out alone near his west London pad today – after The Sun revealed Neil had banned his spouse from speaking to him.

The comedian, 32, was all smiles as he enjoyed some downtime and grabbed a coffee.

After refuelling, Seann – who was booted out of Strictly on Sunday night – whizzed off on his bike.

The outing came after we revealed tensions were running high between Seann and Strictly pro Neil at the Pride of Britain awards earlier this week.

The dancer, 35, is still hurting from wife Katya’s betrayal after she was pictured kissing Seann during a night out at a London pub earlier this month.

And taking a stand, Neil blocked his dancer spouse from speaking to love rival Seann at the bash on Monday, telling her: “We’re not on Strictly now, don’t you dare.”

A source said: “Neil and Katya were half way up the carpet when Seann arrived.

“Katya said she was going to say hello but Neil held her back and told her ‘We’re not on Strictly now, don’t you dare’.

“An organiser foresaw a potential bust-up so held Seann back to ensure they were kept apart.

“Neil is still clearly very unhappy with Seann, but Katya clearly doesn’t want to cut ties.”

Seann clearly didn’t let the snub ruin his night as he was later seen enjoying the attention of fans on the red carpet and waitresses inside the venue.

Jason Garrett ‘talked about thought process’ behind OT punt with Jerry Jones

FRISCO, Texas — At the day-after analysis of the Dallas Cowboys’ 19-16 overtime loss to the Houston Texans, coach Jason Garrett on Monday explained his decision to punt on the first possession of overtime to owner and general manager Jerry Jones. After the game, Jones was critical of the decision to punt at the Houston 42 since the Cowboys did not regain possession and lost on a 36-yard field goal by Ka’imi Fairbairn with 1:50 to play in overtime. "We were being outplayed there, not out-efforted but we were outplayed," Jones said Sunday. "But it’s time for risk at that particular time. That’s not second-guessing, but we were taking some risk too at certain points in the game." After the game, Garrett defended the decision because he was relying on a defense that forced three punts, created two turnovers and gave up just two field goals in the second half. On Monday, Garrett relayed the message to Jones during their Monday meeting. "We…
