Kylie Jenner’s Secret Pregnancy Gave Kris ‘Anxiety’ — But It Was a ‘Such a Positive Experience’

At long last, Kylie Jenner‘s pregnancy is being openly discussed on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Sunday’s episode chronicled the new mom welcoming her first child, daughter Stormi, with rapper Travis Scott on Feb. 1. When the day arrived, Kylie chose to have just her mom Kris Jenner and sister Khloé Kardashian in the delivery room with her, in addition to Scott. And while the other sisters may have been disappointed to be left out, they were mostly relieved that they wouldn’t be blamed if the secret got out. (Though PEOPLE first confirmed the news of the baby on the way in September 2017, Kylie, 21, didn’t publicly address it until after she gave birth.)

“Kylie is about to have her baby and it’s pretty crazy that it really hasn’t been confirmed,” said Kourtney, 39. “So I don’t want to be the one with the info, or getting blamed for someone finding out the secret.”

Kim, 37, marveled that her little sister had some amazing friends for having kept the news under wraps all those months.

“Can you believe that Kylie got out of the hospital with not one report?” she said. “Now Caitlyn can never say we have big mouths and we leak everything. We kept that a secret!”

Momager Kris, 62, admitted keeping a lid on the news wasn’t easy.

“That was a lot of anxiety for me,” she said. “People were saying, ‘We’re going to post, we’re going to announce,’ and I’m like, ‘No!’ But she did it perfectly and it was such a positive experience for her.”

“Totally,” Kim said. “Everyone was just like, ‘Okay, we get it. We get why you kept it private.’ … Kylie’s always wanted to be a mom, so this is really exciting for her. She just didn’t want anyone changing her happy moment and her happy pregnancy, so I’m really proud of her that she stuck to her guns and was able to tell her story her way.”

And Kylie, who said she was “really doing this for myself,” said the experience couldn’t have gone any better.

“I like ” she said. “I miss it. I had the easiest pregnancy ever. You never feel alone — I was really sad to not be pregnant anymore.”

At the end of the day, no one was more proud than Kris, who delivered the baby herself.

“It’s only been a couple of days since Kylie had baby Stormi, and I can already tell that Kylie is going to be the most amazing mom and is so in love with her baby,” she gushed.

But at the same time, the momager was going through a challenging time with a different daughter.

“My relationship with Kourtney over the years has been kind of fabulous, but lately there’s definitely a shift,” she said. “I really don’t know where this is coming from and it makes me really, really sad. I just wish she would make an effort to treat me the way I would love to be treated. I love her so much. She’s my firstborn daughter.”

As it turned out, the tension had started bubbling up after Kourtney’s therapist apparently informed her that she has an “issue with betrayal” because Kris cheated on her father, the late Robert Kardashian Sr., with soccer player Todd Waterman.

“Lately, in therapy, a lot of topics that have been coming up are about childhood issues and how that affects so many of my relationships today,” she said. “If I had a problem, I wouldn’t go to , ever. I would go to Dad. She was not my person that I found comforting.”

But Kris said Kourtney was “doted on” as a child.

“I think she’s going through a phase in life where she has some anger inside that I don’t quite understand,” she said. “I wish her dad was around to say, ‘You’ve had the best most magical childhood of any child, ever.’ That’s what we prided ourselves on.”

“She probably felt like she was always picking a side and it was always my dad’s,” remarked Khloé, 34. “In the divorce, she picked his. In the trial, she picked his. She wanted to live there over your house. She’s always picked his.”

Khloé said she wished her sister would communicate her feelings more openly with the family.

“I know Kourtney, for some reason, finds more comfort in talking to a stranger about family stuff, rather than talking to the source,” she said. “I would be fine with that if Kourtney took whatever her therapist talked about and then came to the source, but that’s the part we’re missing and that’s what’s frustrating to us all, because we never resolve something or work through something or just even fight about something if we don’t know what’s going on. It’s always us pulling teeth and guessing with her.”

Eventually, Kourtney decided she had to talk things through with Kris.

“If my going to therapy and figuring this all out is making me resentful towards my mom, which is not how I want to feel and it’s not how I want to treat her, then I feel like it is worth having a conversation with her, just to let her know that’s not my intention,” she said. “It’s really about me working on myself.”

“I’ve gone through a phase of being more sensitive to things,” she admitted. “It’s nothing bad, it’s just understanding and then understanding how that affects our current relationships. Like, if there’s certain behavior that Younes will do that’s similar to things that my mom would do, just subconsciously, it will just bring up similar issues. There is that uncomfortable place when you are growing, but I think it’s something that I have to just deal with myself.”

Sitting down with her mom, Kourtney did her best to explain where she was coming from.

“As you know, I’ve been gong to therapy lately and my therapist says your intimate relationships bring up childhood issues,” she said. “I just don’t think it’s fair if I’m not communicating it. I don’t want to go back in time … I feel like it has passed and I’m not feeling that way anymore, but I just wanted to explain that to you so you understand where it’s coming from.”

“What we usually do as a family is we criticize each other, we’re judgmental and we give each other an attitude and we’re bitchy,” she added. “So moving forward in life, I’ve made a point with my sisters already to not accept that anymore.”

Tearing up, Kris said all she wanted was “the best, most joyful, peaceful life” for her daughter.

“Whatever it takes for me to be part of that, that’s all I want,” she said. “That’s the joy of my life, is you guys. I have nothing else. I never want you to be disappointed in me, so if there’s something you want to say or something that you need to have me work on, I’m 100 percent ready to work on it because I love you so much. You’re my firstborn and I wouldn’t trade that for anything.”

The two of them hugged it out, and Kourtney agreed to work on things, too.

“Moving forward, I’m going to tell you if I don’t like something or if something is hurtful, instead of just being a bitch about it,” she promised.

“I think Kourtney and I have gotten through that rough patch and started a healing process,” said Kris. “That’s a really big step in the right direction, especially for her. She’s always going to hang onto the past a little bit, but what I am hopeful for is that we can look forward to an amazing future together because I love her more than anything.”

Here’s why everyone’s talking about Brad and Angelina’s ‘secret face to face meetings’

But what does it all mean?

Despite filing for divorce 27 months ago, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s custody battle is still ongoing – yes, really.

When Angelina Jolie originally filed for primary physical custody of their six children back in 2016, Brad Pitt kept a relatively low profile, and although we knew they were disputing over custody in court, little news has since emerged.

Then three months ago, the former couple’s divorce took a turn, with a court order issued over the custody of Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

The verdict? Angelina was reportedly required to give Brad more access to their children and help improve their relationship, with Brad given unrestricted phone rights and summer visitation.

Then it all got very messy, with Angelina claiming that Brad had yet to pay any meaningful child support, and Brad’s team calling it ‘a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage’.

This week however it emerged that the Pitt-Jolies could be moving forward, with it reported that the former couple had seen each other in ‘secret face to face meetings’.

The topic of these meetings? Well, according to Entertainment Tonight, they have focused on co-parenting amicably, with both parties reportedly keen to do what’s best for their children.

‘Brad and Angelina actually set up a secret meeting at her house,’ the source added. ‘It’s the first time they have truly gotten together to make things work since their group therapy with the children.’

And the verdict? ‘Brad and Angie’s meeting was a success. They are going to stay with the plan set forth through the courts.’

‘Angelina decided it was time to try to make things work and Brad was relieved and very ready for the offer,’ the source concluded. ‘Brad has been dedicated to making peace throughout the process and now it finally seems like they are at a point where they can create a calmer situation for the kids.’

Well, that sounds like it’s good news all around.

Secret Stuff Mark Wahlberg and the ‘Mile 22’ Cast Learned While Making the Movie

Mile 22 — directed by Peter Berg and starring Mark Wahlberg, Ronda Rousey, Iko Uwais, Lauren Cohan and John Malkovich — hits UK screens today. The film’s official synopsis is as follows…

An elite American intelligence officer, aided by a top-secret tactical command unit, tries to smuggle a mysterious police officer with sensitive information out of the country.

FANDOM has been talking to the film’s stars about trying to get information out of the CIA while making the movie. And what they discovered both shocked and surprised the cast.

Hiding, Hacking, and Struggling to Get Access

In the above video, Mark Wahlberg talks about struggling to get access to agents, with the actors visiting the American Embassy in Colombia, but failing to get into certain rooms.

“Thankfully our writer has had a lot of experience with the CIA, Ground Branch, Overwatch, organisations like that,” Wahlberg explains. “So when we went to the embassy in Bogota, we were like, ‘Oh, wow, now we’ll get to meet some guys who are out in the field’ and it was like, ‘No, not happening.’ But we had a couple of consultants who were involved with the CIA to some extent or another. All very unassuming guys.”

Ronda Rousey says it was exciting being near that embassy building and not knowing which people were the elite U.S. agents, but being aware that they were all around.

Lauren Cohan talks about learning how to disappear as part of her preparation for the film, The Walking Dead actress revealing that the cast was taught about agents who are ready for anything at any time.

And Peter Berg discusses the power of hacking, explaining “As technology continues to develop, a well-trained hacker can get into anything, whether it’s traffic light controls, power grid controls, eavesdropping, tracking, activating and shutting down car engines. There’s really no limit to what can be done with technology.”

Mile 22 is in UK cinemas today.

Lily Allen to reveal she had secret fling with bitter enemy Mike Skinner in her autobiography

LILY ALLEN will reveal in her forthcoming autobiography that she slept with bitter enemy Mike Skinner.

The F**k You singer is set to lift the lid on her very unlikely fling with The Streets star — a man she once claimed had a two-inch willy.

Lily Allen secretly bedded her rival The Streets Mike Skinner[/caption]

The warring pair, whose feud kicked off in 2008 and continued well into the following year, are understood to have had a one-night stand when they were both single.

The rapper later married Claire Le Marquand, the mother of his daughter, at a ceremony in France in 2010.

A source said: “Back in the day, Lily and Mike absolutely hated one another — it was one of the most legendary showbiz feuds of the Noughties.

Handout

Mike and Lily began feuding in 2008 and continued well into the following year[/caption]

“Their rows were mainly over social media, so by and large they managed to avoid direct confrontation.

“But what they managed to both keep out of the public domain was that they had once seen each other at a showbiz bash, got a bit tipsy . . .  and one thing led to another.

“It’s very interesting that when Lily decided to publicly bash Mike she decided to attack his manhood.”

Ten years ago the Dry Your Eyes singer called Lily a hypocrite for moaning about media attention while courting it.

Lilys dad Keith Allen is worried about what his daughter will say about him in the book[/caption]

She hit back by calling his music “boring”.

He later claimed on Twitter that the mum of two was “stalking” him, adding: “Now is not the time for d**k measuring.”

Lily responded: “Hmmmmm. That may be quite tricky. Do they make two-inch rulers?”

Ouch. Clearly it was a night they’d both rather forget.

Earlier this year The Sun on Sunday also revealed that in her no-holds-barred memoir My Thoughts Exactly, out next month, Brit winner Lily will tell all about a booze-filled tryst with Liam Gallagher.

WENN

Lily will also tell all about a booze-filled tryst with Liam Gallagher (pictured in 2007)[/caption]

Lily says the autobiography “won’t be written with shame”, and is described as “depicting a life of chaos” in which she “depended on drink, drugs and sex”.

Lily’s actor dad Keith admitted earlier this week that he’s worried to see what his daughter has written about him.

He’s not going to be the only one who needs to have concerns about Lily’s poison pen.

Last night, spokesmen for both Lily and Mike declined to comment.

Spears is a real Brit

BRITNEY SPEARS is used to having men falling for her – and it is no different when she’s performing.

This sparkly bra and pants get-up had one of her dancers at her feet, as she brought her Piece Of Me tour to London.

Brit was on fine form, even treating the crowd to her impressions of a British accent.

She could give Dick Van Dyke a run for his money.

LIFE working for Samantha Cameron – wife of former PM David – sounds just pants.

The businesswoman, who has launched fashion brand Cefinn, revealed: “I spend quite a lot of my day in my pants and bra testing out garments.

Vicky’s ice ‘n’ toned

THIS ice-cream pool- inflatable is as close as Vicky Pattison will be getting to a sweet treat – as she is currently enrolled at a gruelling boot camp.

Vicky Pattison has been showing off her toned body on Instagram

The I’m A Celeb winner signed up for a cleanse at the Jason Vale Juicy Oasis Retreat & Spa in Portugal, which involves plenty of hikes, yoga and a juice diet.

So it’s no wonder Vicky is keen to show off her toned bod in a selection of swimwear on her Instagram account.

We just hope she gets to tuck into the real thing, with chocolate sauce and sprinkles, very soon.

Ayda's scents of humour

EW. X Factor judge Ayda Field says she has to remind husband Robbie Williams and boss Simon Cowell to wash.

Despite being outnumbered by blokes on the panel, which is completed by former One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson, Ayda has come up with a novel way to ensure the men behave.

She said: “I am totally bringing female ferocity to the panel.

“A thousand per cent I’m keeping them in check.

“At the very least I need to make sure they are bathing and they put fragrance on, because they are pretty stinky as a bunch.”

Something tells us it’s a good job Ayda signed her contract first – although from what we hear, she and Robbie will be coming up smelling of roses as the show’s new additions.

#MeToo 007 moment for Gem

FORMER Bond girl Gemma Arterton didn’t exactly relish her role alongside 007 in Quantum Of Solace.

Gemma Arterton has re-imagined her Bond character in the #MeToo movement[/caption]

After admitting she wouldn’t accept the part in the 2008 film if she was offered it today, she has now written an essay re-imagining her character Strawberry Fields in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

Talking about her piece, called Woke Bond Woman, she said: “I wondered what would happen to my character in the post-MeToo world.

“In Quantum Of Solace, Bond asks my character up to a hotel room, and she sleeps with him and dies.

“Sort of interesting, obviously, with all the Harvey Weinstein stuff.

“So I made her empowered.”

Sounds like Bond producer Barbara Broccoli might be shaken and stirred when she reads it.

Kylie’s clearing her diary for love

Kylie has been busy this year with the release of her latest No1 album Golden, and has her UK tour kicking off in September.

We understand that at Christmas she’ll release single Music’s Too Sad Without You, a collaboration with Jack Savoretti, before her dance anthem with Sigala, What You Waiting For, lands in the new year.

After that, with the exception of a couple of carefully selected brand endorsements, Kylie will concentrate on making sweet music with Paul.

A source said: “Kylie and Paul are madly in love.

“She is in a lucky position where she can retreat from the spotlight, and they plan to spend their free time exploring the world.”

Send us a postcard, Kylie.

Either she had stumbled on a bargain denims warehouse sale, or she was promoting her venture with American Eagle Denim.

Apple’s streaming service might have a secret weapon to beat Netflix: Price

Apple Video Subscription Service

Apple is sure taking its time coming up with original content that could compete with the likes of Netflix, HBO, and Hulu. But when the service launches next year, it might be sold as a standalone product that could be even more affordable than Apple’s biggest rival when it comes to video streaming right now, Netflix.

Netflix’s cheapest plan starts at $ 11 per month in the US, which is a bargain considering the incredible number of original TV series and movies Netflix throws at users on top of a vast catalog of content licensed from others. But the price has been increasing ever since Netflix first launched, and Apple could sneak in and steal some Netflix customers if its own streaming service proves cheaper.

Howard University Graduate Was Treated Like She Wasn’t Worth A Damn At Victoria’s Secret

The list of racist retail incidents across the nation just got its latest addition after a Howard University graduate detailed the racial profiling horror — complete with handcuffs— that she was subjected to during a visit to a Victoria’s Secret in Tennessee this week.

Jovita Jones Cage previously bought a bra before bringing it back because its sensor wasn’t removed at the time of purchase. She went back to the store in the Carriage Crossing mall in Collierville Monday with her receipt, which an employee verified before removing the sensor. However, all hell broke loose when she then decided to do some browsing in the store before leaving, WREG Memphis reported.

A Collierville Police Officer decided to profile Cage while she was on her way to the store’s fitting room. Cage, who is a children’s tutor, was instantly accused of shoplifting and ordered to put both of her hands behind her back.

“The police officer walked straight up to me and slapped handcuffs on me. I think it was for the simple fact that I was black,” she said, adding that the store manager called the cops without speaking with her.

The horrific scene played out in front of store shoppers, which could have been friends or colleagues of Cage.

“I don’t know if one of the parents of the kids I tutor could’ve been there,” she added, touching on the stigma and embarrassment felt by people of color who are racially profiled. “I don’t know if one of my old professors could’ve been in there.”

The officer forcefully searched her purse before finally realizing that she hadn’t taken any merchandise. A crying Cage was escorted out of the store and banned from coming back. Really?

She later made a complaint to Victoria’s Secret corporate office, speaking with a representative who only offered a standard apology and a $ 100 gift card, which Cage turned down. The company later pulled out all the familiar stops: an executive’s phone call to Cage, investigation, termination of the employee involved in the incident and promise to better educate workers on the stores’ policies.

Cage was still dealing with the trauma over the incident, having reached out to the NAACP for help. The standard protocol for stores when employees are caught racial profiling doesn’t fully address the biases that prompt discriminatory behaviors.

“They’re going to have to do more,” Cage said. “I want justice not only for me, but for people everywhere. I hope after this, other victims of racial profiling will come forward. It’s solidarity. It’s not just about African-Americans. It’s about everyone being treated fairly.”

Willow Smith has moved to the beat of her own drum since we were introduced to her as a young child. But what no one knew, including her mom Jada Pinkett-Smith, is that she was struggling internally with something pretty heavy.

On the latest episode of Jada’s Facebook series, Red Table Talk, Willow revealed that at just 9 years old, and at the height her “Whip My Hair” success, she was self harming by cutting her wrists.

 

The transparency between Queen Jada and her princess is something most young Black folks still aspire to have with their families:

We’re just glad to see that our beloved Willow is still here with us and didn’t let the pressures of fame bring her down.

Well done, sis.

Nassar Victim: Michigan State Leader Offered Secret Payoff

John Engler, center, interim President of Michigan State University, tells Dan Martel, 21, President of MSU college democrats, that his allotted speaking time of five minutes is up during a university board meeting.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A sexual assault victim of former sports doctor Larry Nassar confronted Michigan State University officials on Friday, alleging the school’s interim leader offered a payoff to settle her lawsuit and pressured her to do so without her attorney present.

Kaylee Lorincz spoke during a contentious board of trustees meeting, where interim President John Engler expressed regret over the university’s response to another woman’s federal lawsuit over the schools handling of rape allegations involving basketball players. Lorincz, who has said Larry Nassar sexually assaulted her when she sought treatment for back pain, said Engler and his attorney offered her $ 250,000 when the teen and her mother were at the school a few weeks ago to sign up to speak at Friday’s meeting.

According to Lorincz, Engler said to her, “Right now if I wrote you a check for $ 250,000 would you take it?”

Lorincz said Engler also claimed another Nassar victim had given him an amount she would consider to settle with the university. Lorincz said she felt “bullied” by the encounter.

Engler didn’t immediately respond to her comments. His spokeswoman, Emily Guerrant, said she was in the room during the conversation and does not remember Engler offering a dollar figure.

“My interpretation of the discussion was not that he was saying, ‘I’m offering you $ 250,000,’” she said. “It was a discussion about the civil litigation and how it was going on.”

Amanda Thomashow, 28, left, and Alex Neil-Sevier, 29, wear silence gags while listening to the Michigan State University board meeting.

Lorincz addressed Engler in a room brimming with protesters, parents and sexual assault victims of Nassar, now serving decades in prison for molesting women and girls and for possessing child pornography. Lorincz was among roughly 250 women who gave statements earlier this year during Nassar’s sentencing hearings in two Michigan courtrooms.

In a separate case, a woman filed a lawsuit Monday saying the university’s counselors discouraged her from filing a police report after three Michigan State basketball players allegedly raped her in 2015. She accuses the school of violating Title IX protocol and claims staff made it clear that “she faced an uphill battle that would create anxiety and unwanted media attention” should she report her rape.

The university’s immediate response to reporters asking about the lawsuit was to decline comment. But on Wednesday it issued a lengthy statement that detailed staff interaction with the woman.

The university faced criticism over that response from people who say it violated privacy laws.

Engler acknowledged Friday that the school “provided an unnecessary amount of detail” about the case, saying some people saw the response as “violating privacy expectations.”

Valerie von Frank, right, of Okemos, Mich., holds a portrait of her daughter Grace French, a sexual abuse survivor.

Engler became interim president after Lou Anna Simon resigned in January hours after Nassar was sentenced to decades in prison for crimes involving Michigan State athletes. Students remain anxious over the future course of the university, which has yet to choose a permanent replacement for Simon.

In Friday’s board meeting, Engler attempted to steer focus toward celebrating milestones of the university’s graduating seniors but was frequently usurped by boos and jeers from a crowd clad in teal shirts with the phrase, “I stand with the sister survivors #MeTooMSU.” Some Nassar victims wrapped their mouths with black bands that had the phrase “Silenced” scrawled over them.

Parents of victims were left in the lobby downstairs because their posters of their children’s faces were considered “signs” and thus barred from the meeting room. Protesters who were able to attend instead held up cellphones with childhood pictures of victims.

During the meeting, Engler proposed a 2.97 percent tuition increase, the third lowest in 20 years. Earlier he had teased the possibility of heavy tuition increases should the school’s lawsuits over the Nassar controversy continue to snowball financially.

During public testimony, Engler and his board were castigated for how he handled the public fallout over the past few months and repeatedly told to resign.

“You sponsored my assault,” dancer Morgan McCaul, a Nassar victim, said. “Your time is up. Resign.”

As McCaul’s testimony concluded, the crowd joined her in chanting, “Shame on you,” at the board.

Who is Charity Dingle’s secret son on Emmerdale and what has she said about being raped by DI Bails?

EMMERDALE viewers were left reeling by emotional scenes which revealed that Charity Dingle has a secret son.

Here’s what you need to know about her child and the heartbreaking circumstances which led the character to give him up.

The revelation that Charity Dingle has a secret son left Emmerdale fans reeling

Who is Charity Dingle’s secret son on Emmerdale?

Emmerdale fans were left in tears when it was revealed that Charity Dingle has a secret son.

The character gave birth to her child after being raped as a teenager and was forced to give him up after her ordeal, but now it seems he’s going to track his mother down and arrive in the village.

It was first reported late last year that Charity’s secret son would be making an appearance to the Dales.

It’s thought she gave the baby up when he was just days old, as she couldn’t face keeping him under the circumstances in which he was conceived.

The revelation came when Charity chatted up a random man after an angry row with her partner Vanessa.

She gave him the boot, screaming that she wished every man “would be wiped off the face of the earth”, but then pretended to Vanessa that he was awaiting her upstairs.

However, Charity returned to her room alone, where she tearfully opened the box of baby clothes.

Charity told Vanessa she was raped by a policeman in emotional scenes

What did Charity say about her rape ordeal?

The confirmation of Charity’s secret child came the night after she revealed she had been raped, beaten and kept prisoner by a policeman at the age of 14.

After seeing the police officer DI Mark Bails on TV talking about the Phil Webb case, she tearfully told Vanessa the truth about her past in tearjerking scenes.

Charity recalled how the seemingly kind DI Bails had offered her a place to live when she was on the streets working as a prostitute.

She told Vanessa: ‘But I thought I was lucky because there was heating a fridge and a telly.”


But the first night she stayed at his flat the sick cop raped her, before keeping her imprisoned.

Charity managed to escape one night to call the police after he hit her.

Vanessa urged Charity to go to police, but she refused and said: “How are you supposed to report the man who raped you to the man who raped you?”

Furious at Vanessa’s persistence in trying to get her to report the crime, Charity threw her out of the house.

However, Vanessa ignored her partner’s wishes and called the police to report a “sexual abuse and rape”, leading to further tension between the pair.

Norway Crushed the Competition at the Winter Olympics. Here Is the Tiny Country’s Secret

Tore Ovrebo can be forgiven for having a little swagger as the 2018 Winter Olympic Games near their end in PyeongChang. Well, as much as swagger as is acceptable for a Norwegian. Ovrebo is the director of elite sport for the Olympiatoppen, an organization of scientists, trainers and nutritionists who work with Olympic athletes across Norway’s sports federations. And Norway is crushing the Winter Olympics. As of Friday Feb. 23, Norway has far more medals than any other country at the Winter Games, with 37 total medals. Canada is second, with 27 medals.The United States is currently fourth, with 21 Olympic medals.

Norway’s Olympic success is all the more impressive when you consider the team’s size. While the U.S. sent 242 athletes — the most in Winter Olympic history — to PyeongChang, Norway sent just 109. A team with less than half of America’s Olympic workforce won almost twice the number of medals. Norway was also tied with Germany for the most gold medals as of Friday, with 13.

Ovrebo’s contract running the Olympiatoppen, which is funded by Norway’s national lottery, is up soon. “I will probably keep my job,” he says Ovrebo when we met recently at the speedskating venue in Gangneung. “Though you shouldn’t quote me on that.”

Odd Andersen—AFP/Getty ImagesNorway’s Marit Bjorgen crosses the finish line first during the women’s 4x5km classic free style cross country relay on Feb. 17, 2018.

So what, exactly, is Norway’s Olympics secret (besides crazy curling pants)?

Ovrebo went out of his way to explain he didn’t want to come across as giving anyone, lest the United States, any advice. “I am not a tiny gorilla beating my chest telling you what to do because it’s not my position,” he says. “We do it this way, others do it another way.” He also admits Norway is blessed with many advantages for Winter Olympics dominance, like snow, a history of excellence in sports like biathlon and cross-country skiing, and free health care, which helps keep young athletic talent in good shape.

But a distinctly Norweigan rule for their youth sports may strike a particular chord with many Americans. (This one included: I’m a youth sports parent, and wrote a TIME cover story on the booming kid sports industry last summer).

Ovrebo says that in Norway, organized youth sports teams cannot keep score until they are 13. “We want to leave the kids alone,” says Ovrebo. “We want them to play. We want them to develop, and be focused on social skills. They learn a lot from sports. They learn a lot from playing. They learn a lot from not being anxious. They learn a lot from not being counted. They learn a lot from not being judged. And they feel better. And they tend to stay on for longer.”

I tell him that the U.S. operates in the polar opposite fashion. We crown nine-year-old national champions. There won’t be nine-year-old national champs in Norway any time soon.

The system, Norwegian athletes say, can really pay off. “The culture and the environment we grow up in, it’s great for us,” says Norwegian skier Ragnhild Mowinckel, silver medalist in the giant slalom and downhill races in PyeongChang.

Norway has other sports development quirks. Trainers don’t tell athletes how much they weigh. “It’s very dangerous,” says Ovrebo. “They can develop eating disorders.” Olympic athletes don’t receive prize money or bonuses from their federations. “We think prize money turns people into something they shouldn’t be,” says Ovrebo.

Norway also wants high-character performers on its teams. “No jerks,” says Ovrebo.

It seems, I tell Overbo, that Norway values the psychology of sports. “Your mind is where you experience your life, isn’t it?” Ovrebo says.

Sergei Bobylev—TASS/Getty ImagesGold medalists, Norway’s Martin Johnsrud Sundby and Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo during a victory ceremony for the men’s cross-country skiing team sprint free event at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

Norway’s philosophy has paid off. The Norwegian Olympians play cards and charades before their competitions. “We think it’s a good way building the team up, if you have fun with each other,” says Mowinckel. Now that they’re old enough to keep score, the athletes must outdo one another. “Everyone wants to show guys that they can take some medals,” says Martin Johnsrub Sundby, a cross-country skier who won gold in the team sprint event on Wednesday. His teammate, Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo, started celebrating before the finish like, like Usain Bolt.

Perhaps Norway’s Olympics swagger is starting to reach dangerous levels. “It’s a good feeling when there’s cake on the table every night,” says Johannes Thingnes Bo, a biathlete who has won gold and silver medals in PyeongChang. Apparently, Norway’s athletes get treated to dessert every time one of them earns a medal. “That’s why we have four chefs,” says Bo. “One can’t make all that cake.”

What Will Meghan Wear? Royal Wedding Dress A Top UK Secret

LONDON (AP) — Where does one shop for a wedding gown set to be the dress of the year — an outfit chic enough for a fashion-loving bride but suitable for a church so regal it’s the burial place of monarchs?

Everyone at London Fashion Week — and elsewhere — is dying to know.

With only three months to go before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s May 19 wedding at Windsor Castle, both the fashion and bridal worlds are abuzz with talk of who the bride will pick to design her dress and what kind of look she would go for.

It’s no wonder: There’s not been a bigger royal wedding since Harry’s brother Prince William married Kate Middleton in 2011 in an extravaganza broadcast around the world. Seven years later, Kate’s lacey, long-sleeved Alexander McQueen gown is still influencing bridal designs today.

“It’s going to be the greatest fashion commission of 2018. There’ll be millions of eyeballs on it,” said Jade Beer, editor at the British edition of Brides magazine. “It’s her major fashion moment.”

“She’ll definitely need an upgrade from the dress she wore for her first wedding,” Beer added, referring to the simple strapless white gown the American actress wore at her 2011 Jamaica beach wedding to film producer Trevor Engelson. The couple divorced in 2013.

While the design — as well as the designer — of the dress is a closely guarded secret, many are positive that Markle will choose a British designer.

Kate wasn’t the only bride in Britain’s extended royal family sticking with a British designer. Zara Phillips, Queen Elizabeth II’s second-eldest grandchild, wore royal couturier Stewart Parvin. In 1981, then-Lady Diana Spencer — the late mother of groom Harry — surprised many when she chose David and Elizabeth Emanuel, a pair of designers fresh out of college.

Front-runners for Markle’s choice include British-Canadian Erdem Moralioglu, known for his elegant, feminine styles; Ralph & Russo, the couture designers Markle chose for her engagement dress; heritage fashion powerhouse Burberry; as well as McQueen and Giles Deacon, who designed the wedding gown for Kate’s sister Pippa Middleton.

Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer on their wedding day at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

Victoria Beckham has denied rumors that she’s been asked. French designer Roland Mouret has also been cited as a possible pick.

“I mean, she could surprise us all and choose a Canadian brand — she was so loyal to them while she was filming up there,” said Miles Socha, editor-in-chief at Women’s Wear Daily, referring to the time Markle spent in Toronto filming the TV series “Suits.” ”But probably we would have to place our bets on a British designer.”

Some are hoping Markle will pick something less traditional because she has more leeway. After all, Harry is only fifth in line to the throne — and will be sixth after Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, gives birth to her third child in April. In addition, their wedding venue, St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, is less imposing than St. Paul’s Cathedral or Westminster Abbey in London.

“I really expect something different from her. Her style is so clean, really modern, and bridal has been so traditional in the past few years,” said London-based bridal designer Naomi Neoh. “I think — I hope — it would be clean, simple with beautiful detailing.”
Neoh hopes Markle will choose a dress that celebrates her individuality.

“Meghan’s very different from the English tradition. She’s got her career, she’s half-black,” she said. “She’s not going to be queen. It has to be respectful and appropriate of course, but it can be a bit more exciting with the cut and the lines. I think maybe a high neck, low back — that’d be demure enough.”

Still, it’s a dress that needs to live up to the grandeur of its surroundings. St. George’s Chapel is intimate only by royal proportions. It seats 800 guests and has a very important place in British history as the resting place of scores of kings and queens — including both of the queen’s parents.

“She’s going to be walking over dead monarchs on the way up the aisle,” said Beer. “There’s a huge sense of occasion.”

Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge stand outside Westminster Abbey after their Royal Wedding in London.

Markle has already signaled a break from the conservative styles that dominate British royal wardrobes, ditching stuffy frock coats for sleek trousers. Many admired the sharp trouser suit she wore to match Harry’s outfit at a recent official event.

The actress herself has offered some clues about her dream wedding dress.

In March 2016, before she met Harry, she told Glamour magazine that she favored “classic and simple” styles with “a modern twist,” and that she preferred “wedding dresses that are whimsical or subtly romantic.” She named Ellie Saab and J. Mendel among her favorite designers, and said her favorite celebrity wedding dress was the simple slip of a gown that Carolyn Besette Kennedy wore in 1996.

Circumstances have changed since then — but whatever style she picks, Markle’s choice will soon be seen in bridal salons everywhere.

Referring to Kate’s gown, Neoh said: “Literally the next day, everyone wanted long lace sleeves — the year after getting lace was impossible. It was bananas.”

Many say with Markle’s looks and the young royals’ popularity, she could get away with nearly anything.

“I think everybody here loves her so dearly,” said designer Jasper Conran. “She can wear a dishcloth and people won’t mind.”

Joe Jackson’s Secret Daughter Steps Out To Promote Memoir ‘Bastard Child’

The half-sister of Michael Jackson has a new tell-all book in which she details years of being treated coldly by the Jackson family, snubbed directly by the King of Pop and bullied at school because of her family ties.

Joh’Vonnie Jackson, born the day after Michael Jackson’s 16th birthday, is the product of a 25-year affair Joe Jackson had with her mom Cheryle Terrell, according to the Daily Mail.

“I was very aware that I was in the Jackson family growing up, I saw them on TV, I listened to their music,” she explains. “But I was hidden away, kept secret for years, not able to become part of that family. It was hurtful.”

Eventually Joe Jackson’s secret daughter was revealed to the rest of the family, but the Jacksons wouldn’t accept her, Joh’Vonnie claims. Now 43, Joh’Vonnie is still close to her father and to his credit he tried to integrate her into Jackson family life. But despite his best efforts she faced years of rejection by those she longed to be near.

“I have met every single last one of them, but for some reason there has always been something stopping them from accepting me, from being close to me,” she says. “Of course when I was around them there was a show of love, but once I was gone there was no phone calls asking how I’m doing or how is my daughter doing, it’s upsetting, real hurtful and I still feel rejected.

“Even when my mother died in 2014 the first person who called me was their mother Katherine, the only sibling to call was Rebbie, she’s the only one who really cares,” she said. “I later said to my brother Jermaine, ‘my mother died.’ He started stuttering and said, ‘I was gonna call.’ It was a wake up call, it let me know my position in the family. As far as I’m concerned they can all kiss my ass.”

Joh’Vonnie recalls meeting her older brother Michael at his Neverland Ranch in 2003, when she was 29. The entire Jackson family was there for a family reunion.

“It was a big moment for me,” Joh’Vonnie recalls, “but Michael was looking at me and seemed cold and standoffish, he just said hi and then he saw my daughter Yasmine, and he was just fascinated with her, in awe. He said ‘Hi Jasmine’ and I said, ‘No, Michael, her name is Yasmine with a Y,’ I had to correct him. He said ‘Okay, Yasmine with a Y,’ and then that was it. He never acknowledged that I was his sister, there was no hug or kiss, not even a hand shake, no physical contact at all. I wanted to embrace him, I thought that he would wanna go some place quiet and sit and talk with me and ask me about my life and get to know me a little better. It was very hurtful, he wasn’t interested at all.”

Instagram Photo

 

Joh’Vonnie’s heartache was compounded by Michael’s continued interest in his then eight-year-old niece: “With my daughter he was totally different, she got hugs and kisses, everything I didn’t get, I’m woman enough to admit I was jealous. We met outside by the movie theater, there was a bunch of people there. I never did get a chance to speak to Michael properly. At the time it was very hurtful, again there was this theme that I felt shut out.”

Joh’Vonnie stayed with her cousin at a hotel in Santa Barbara, California that night rather than on the sprawling 2,700 acre ranch. She returned to Neverland the next day with a renewed hope of achieving a break-through with her older brother.

“I didn’t see Michael all day, he was in the main house,” she said. “Yasmine and Paris [Michael’s daughter] were off playing for hours, she was playing with her little cousin, Paris is such a sweet girl. I sat with the rest of the family. Jermaine and Rebbie talked with me for a while. None of my other siblings acknowledged me much though.”

Joh’Vonnie said that she was constantly taunted in school because she was Michael Jackson’s sister.

Instagram Photo

 

“I got beat up every single day because I was Joh’Vonnie Jackson.”

Joh’Vonnie and her mother lived just five miles from the Jackson home and Joe would visit most days, lavishing Joh’Vonnie with gifts. This was made worse when Michael’s parents ended up living separate lives and Joh’Vonnie, then in her early 20s, moved in with Joe in Las Vegas and worked as a baggage handler at the airport.

Unusually Joh’Vonnie is no stranger to the Jackson family home in Encino, having been there with Joe several times. She is also on surprisingly friendly terms with Jackson matriarch Katherine and even calls her ‘mother’ like her siblings.

Katherine knew of Joe’s affair which began in the early-1970s but her devotion to the Jehovah’s Witness faith led her to forgive him and accept Joh’Vonnie.

But for her siblings, acceptance didn’t come so easy.

‘I would be shopping in an apartment store and would see LaToya, but I couldn’t go to talk with her because I didn’t feel she wanted to talk to me.

In LaToya’s book, ‘Growing Up in the Jackson Family’, the singer wrote that her mother Katherine had referred to Joh’Vonnie as a ‘bastard child’ – now the title of Joh’Vonnie’s own book.

She explained: ‘That’s just how LaToya is, she just likes to create drama, she was setting me up for failure, she wanted ultimately for me not to like her mother and for there to be issues. I hung on to that and then I met Katherine and I couldn’t even see her saying anything like that about me. She was really nice to me, I think she was very hurt at the time of the affair, that’s totally understandable. No woman likes for her husband to go cheating on her and produce a child, it was probably heart-breaking. But you know she had come out of that, she let me live in her home, me and my daughter, we didn’t have to pay any rent. I worked to support my daughter and I took care of her home when she was not there. We have cooked together with have had good conversations.”

For Joh’Vonnie, she wishes the rest of the family could take a leaf out of ‘Mother’s’ book. Other than Rebbie and Tito, she doesn’t feel comfortable in any of her other sibling’s presence.

“I’m not interested in having any of them over for Christmas dinner, in cooking anymore German chocolate cakes for anybody, or any peach cobbler, Jermaine likes for me to make those for him, I’m just not even… no I’m good.”

Joh’Vonnie works in the timeshare industry and lives in Las Vegas with her 23-year-old daughter Yasmine who is studying to be a nurse. She lives just a few miles from dad Joe, 89, and sees him at least once a week.

Joh’Vonnie’s book ‘Bastard Child’ is available for order from Amazon.

FASHION UPDATE:

Two new bottles with secret superpowers

by

Joyce Slaton

posted in Products

Spend some time on the bottle aisle in any drugstore or baby specialty store and you’ll soon realize one important fact: bottles are really hard to choose. Here you have your basic confusing product situation — shelves full of products that look pretty much alike, but each claim to be the very best on the market. And each, you will soon learn, claims to be the most like the breast: the widest nipple, the squishiest bottle, it goes on and on.

The best bottle for your baby is the one you can afford and your baby drinks from. That said, sometimes bottles emerge with cool qualities we want to call out, like these two newbies.

1. Nanobébé Breastmilk Bottles

If you see one of these bottles in the wild (i.e. out of its packaging), you’ll probably want to check it out, because of its unique shape. It’s domed, and has a depression on the bottom like one you’d see in a wine bottle. Nanobébé claims this makes the bottle easy to hold — depends on your hands or your baby’s hands, probably — and it also makes the milk easier to thaw, because instead of the milk being in one large clumped-together big icy mass, it’s spread out more thinly in the inside of the bottle. Faster thaw = easier for you (and, Nanobébé also says, more vitamins are preserved, which is probably also true but who knows what difference it ultimately makes).

Other Nanobébé upsides: the bottles stack for easy storage and you can pump directly into them. Each bottle comes with an adapter that works with just about any standard/narrow neck breast pumps (that means your Medela, Ameda, and Spectra pumps), so you can pump into the bottle, stack ’em up in the freezer, and then feed your infant from the same bottles — no need to transfer milk. Nanobébé sells its own bottle warmer, or you can just warm up the bottle in a pot or bowl of water like any other bottle.

Nanobébé also sells neat little zip-top-like storage bags, and an organizer for your freezer, to keep everything neat and organized.

You can’t pump directly into the bags, though. If you want to use them, you have to pump into bottles and then transfer over, which we all know ups the chance of spilling some of that liquid gold. We like the Nanobébé system, however, and think it looks neat and straightforward to use for pump-and-feed mamas; easy to store, carry, and defrost.

Buy it: Nanobébé 5 oz. Slow-Flow Breast Milk Bottle, $ 22; Nanobébé 25-Pack Breast Milk Storage Bags and Organizer, $ 27; Nanobébé Smart Warming Bowl, $ 26

2. Tommee Tippee Advanced Anti-Colic Baby Bottle

No one’s really sure what causes colic, but it does seem like certain bottles make sensitive babies have more gas. If you have one of those sensitive babies, Dr. Brown’s is usually the first anti-colic bottle parents try, but if that doesn’t work for them for some reason (or they can’t find it in stores), Tommee Tippee’s new anti-colic bottle may be the bottle of your dreams.

The name of the game in anti-colic bottles is venting air, and bottle makers do it in different ways, any of which may or may not work for your baby (this is fun, right?). Like Dr. Brown’s, the Tommee Tippee bottles vent the air with a central “straw” that comes in 3 pieces. But unlike Dr. Brown’s, the pieces are a little easier to clean, as you’ll see in the video below. You still have to, sigh, pull out your bottle brush (where did you put that thing, anyway?), but just for the central stem, not in quite as many nooks and crannies like for the Dr. Brown’s.

It’s a small point, but out of such small points, hassle or lack of it is born.

Buy it: Tommee Tippee Advanced Anti-Colic Baby Bottle, 5 ounce, 3 count, $ 26; Tommee Tippee Advanced Anti-Colic Baby Bottle, 9 ounce, 3 count, $ 25

Chaka Khan Gives A Makeup Tutorial For Vogue’s Beauty Secret Series

Music legend Chaka Khan shared her diva makeup ritual for Vogue’s YouTube Beauty Secrets series, peep the clip above.

The fashion and beauty icon is concerned about today’s makeup artists — mostly feminine males who overdo it with their makeup brushes, so she chooses to apply her own makeup these days.

“Mostly I taught myself. I have put my makeup on in the back of limousines, on the way to gigs,” she told Vogue magazine.

Chaka said the secret to achieving a proper balance of makeup is by accentuating different parts of her face.

In other words, don’t overdo it! Oftentimes, less is more, ladies.

As noted by essence.com, Chaka’s beauty tips include:

1. Skip false lashes. “I absolutely despise false eyelashes. I can’t work with them I sweat too much,” she says.

2. Forget red lipstick, opt for pink. “I’ve gone off reds and I do the hot pinks, they’re more youthful,” explains Chaka.

3. Never forget powder, ever. “Any time you put on foundation, be sure to go over it with powder,” the diva instructs.

4. Eyeliner can easily take you from day to night. “I’ll take a little more black [eyeliner] and it’s going to make it pop more and be really pretty,” she says.

5. Oh, and don’t forget perfume! “Always spray your favorite perfume, and always look your best,” the singer reminds.

Report: Pentagon Acknowledges Secret UFO Program

For the first time, the Pentagon has acknowledged the existence of a recent, secretive program to investigate reports of UFO sightings, The New York Times reports. While the Defense Department says it ended the mysterious Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program in 2012, Luis Elizondo, the former head of the program, told the Times it continues to operate with the help of officials from the Navy and CIA, albeit without federal funding. Elizondo said he appointed a successor to take over after his resignation in October. The program, which began as part of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2007, was launched with backing from former Senate majority leader Harry Reid and his longtime friend, Robert Bigelow. Bigelow’s company, Bigelow Aerospace, received just under $ 22 million in government funds from late 2008 until 2011, according to the report. The company used the funds to modify buildings for the storage of materials recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena and study people who’ve reported unexplained encounters. The program also collected video and audio recordings of reported UFO sightings, including one in which Navy pilots can be heard expressing shock as a “fleet” of rotating, glowing auras follow them at high speeds.

Wonderful secret villages in Europe

ADVERTISEMENT


Europe has got to be the greatest travel destination in the world. Not only is it incredibly progressive, but, it’s also full of stunning natural beauty and elegance. There is so much stunning architecture, and some incredible history entwined in many of the cities and countries in Europe. But, there are also some wonderful secrets that lie just beneath the surface, waiting for someone to come along and discover them.

If you’re after a few nights hidden away in a stunning but secretive village in Europe, you have a lot of choice. This is a great way of opening your eyes, and enhancing your experiences – and you will have discovered something esoteric, that only a select few people in the world have experienced. These secrets hold the heart and soul of a destination in their hands. Get beneath the surface, away from the wind-swept, tourist-covered streets, and check out these amazing secret villages.

Giornico, Switzerland

Upon first glance, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Giornico was taken from a Hans Christian Anderson story. This village in southern Switzerland feels like it’s a lost-in-time sort of place; like you’ve walked into the middle of some eerie, long forgotten fairytale. The small river that trickles through the village, and the stone bridge that sits astride it, perfectly define this 14th Century place. It’s such a small place that there are no hotels here, so you’ll have to stay nearby – but there are some delightful family-run restaurants.

Kotor, Montenegro

This wild, undiscovered coastal town nestled in the Gulf of Kotor is one of Europe’s true hidden gems. Peppered by stunning medieval architecture and staggering natural elegance, this place is slowly becoming popular with wealthy expats. Considered to be the southernmost fjord in Europe, the sprawling ocean and jutting cliffs give serene and peaceful surroundings. It has one of the best preserved medieval towns in the world and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Discover Montenegro the right way, by checking out Kodor.

Lavenham, England

England might not seem the most exotic of places, but there is so much wonderful beauty to be discovered here, you just have to know where to look. Lavenham is a tiny village in Suffolk, best-known for its 15th Century church, as well as the medieval cottages and scenic walks that are dotted throughout. Old-fashioned bric-a-brac stores and enchanting traditional tea rooms add to the charm of this wonderful settlement.

Norcia, Italy

To be honest, we could probably fill this list with secret Italian villages, so we’ve just gone and chosen our favorite. Norcia rests on the brow of a hill, in the sprawling countryside of southern Perugia. The surrounding area contributes so much to the delicious local foods on offer – such as Pecorino cheese. This is the Italy of long ago – salami hanging outside storefronts, shopkeepers hunched over counters of cheese, and local festivals with home-cooked cuisine. Magical.

As you can see Europe has so much secretive beauty, and you should try to make sure you check out some of them. The choices on this list are just a snapshot of some of the most amazing secret villages in Europe. These places are just brimming with culture, history, and wonderful food, and are aching to be discovered by intrepid visitors. What are you waiting for?!

Having sex before bed could be the secret to a good night’s sleep

sex

By Erin Mayer

From the editors of hellogiggles.com

Falling asleep (and staying asleep) can be a real struggle. Maybe you’ve tried everything, from counting sheep to guzzling sleepytime tea. Well, we have some good news! Having sex before bed could be the secret to a good night’s sleep — but only if you time it right.

There is new research to suggest that getting frisky immediately before bedtime could help you sleep.

According to Men’s Health, ‘Michele Lastella, Ph.D., a sleep researcher at Central Queensland University’s Appleton Institute for Behavioral Science in Adelaide, Australia, recently found that two thirds of people slept better after getting it on.’

We’re guilty of making plenty of pre-bedtime mistakes (like staring at our cell phones until the minute we turn out the light or suddenly remembering that serial killers exist as we close our eyes). But this sounds like the perfect distraction from all that.

It’s actually not the first time that a possible connection between sleep and sexy time has been pointed out.

Back in June, CNN reported on a different study that found ‘women over age 50 who get fewer than seven hours of sleep are less likely to report being sexually active than their peers who sleep more.’ It’s somewhat of a vicious cycle, since, as the CNN article reports, having sex can help you doze off.

See: Going To Work Without Sleeping Has The Same Effect As Turning Up Drunk

Unfortunately, the orgasm aspect appears to be key. The Advertiser (via Men’s Health) indicates that people who experience orgasms will have the best results. The reason for this is likely chemical — as CNN reports, ‘After orgasm, our bodies release significant amounts of the “cuddle hormone” oxytocin, which lowers levels of the stress hormone cortisol, resulting in deep relaxation.’

Considering that, as NBC reported, ‘While 75% of men always reach orgasm during sex, only 29% of women report the same,’ that could be frustrating to hear. But, on the bright side, it’s not all about the finish.

Lastella told The Advertiser (via Men’s Health), ‘When you’re engaging in sex, you’re not thinking about what to do the next day, you’re not going through your phones. It distracts you.’

So there you have it. Sex sets up you up for better sleep because it forces you to chill TF out. Who would’ve thought, right?

Emmerdale’s Tom Waterhouse’s secret to be exposed by Charity Dingle

CHARITY Dingle looks set to expose Tom Waterhouse’s secret in Emmerdale.

The pub landlady – who is played by actress Emma Atkins in the ITV soap – has finally noticed something suspicious about her daughter Debbie’s mysterious boyfriend, and she’s going to expose him.

Emmerdale: Debs gets herself all dolled up for a ‘business’ lunch with Tom, who pulls out all the stops and whisks her off to a surprise location
Tom has been wooing Debbie for as yet unknown nefarious reasons
ITV

Tom has remained away from the village while seducing Debbie as part of his bizarre scheme, but never one to shy away from a mystery, Charity became too intrigued to not meet him.

The conwoman convinced Debbie that she was worried about her being ashamed of her and felt that was why she hadn’t introduced multi-millionaire Tom to her.

It forced Debbie to convince Tom to come to the Christmas lights switch on in the village and make himself known.

But when Debbie revealed the good news and left to go home, Charity admitted her scheme was really about finding out who Tom is.

Emmerdale: Debbie tells Charity she wants nothing more to do with her
Charity isn’t one to hide from a mystery or a fight so could bring Tom down
ITV

Diane told her Debbie wouldn’t be ashamed of her, and Charity replied: “I never thought she was, I was just laying it on thick to be honest to make her feel bad to get her boyfriend to play ball.

“Worked a treat, eh?”

However, while Charity is preparing to face down Tom it could reveal the real reason he is so interested in Debbie, as his manservant Graham pointed out.

“Her mother, is that wise?” asked Graham, hinting that Charity could be the one to recognise Tom and his plan.



Graham added: “What about your other commitments? There’s a conflict of interests.”

But with Tom playing a round of indoor golf at the time, could Tom be behind the golf course deal that’s leaving the Dingles homeless?
