Video Shows Sophisticated Attack on David Ortiz, as Ex-Slugger Remains in Intensive Care

(SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic) — Dominican prosecutors say witnesses and security camera footage show that the attempt to kill former Red Sox star David Ortiz was carried out by two men on a motorcycle and two other groups of people in cars, indicating a new level of sophistication in the attack.

The details were contained in a court document obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Oliver Moisés Mirabal Acosta, who was captured Tuesday night in the town of Mao in the northern Dominican Republic, was driving a grey Hyundai Accent before mounting the bike driven by 25-year-old Eddy Vladimir Feliz García, the document said.

The document also said the two men were seen on security camera footage talking with other people in the Accent and another Hyundai in a nearby street before the shooting at 9:20 p.m. on Sunday.

“In one of the videos it was possible to observe both the accused and the shooter planning the commission of the incident right on Octavio Mejía Ricard Street, which is parallel to the place where the event took place,” prosecutors said.

The document also reveals ineptitude, saying the driver was captured after he skidded and fell off his bike as the pair tried to flee.

Feliz García’s lawyer says his client is an innocent motorcycle taxi driver who had no idea his passenger was going to commit a crime.

Ortiz is recovering from his wounds in intensive care in Boston.

Watch: Surveillance Video Shows Cuba Gooding Jr. DID Touch Groping Accuser’s Thigh and Breast [Video]

Cuba Gooding Jr. was captured on video with his hands on the thigh and breast of the woman accusing him of groping.

via TMZ:

Around 10:15 PM on Sunday, Gooding and his GF, Claudine De Niro, were sitting on a couch in the Magic Hour Rooftop Lounge in NYC … when the accuser sat down next to them. Almost immediately you see Gooding reach over Claudine and place his hand on the woman’s left thigh.

A few seconds later his hand moves up to her breast, and the accuser puts her hand on his. What happens next is open to interpretation — she either pushes his hand back toward him, or he pulls her hand to his mouth and kisses it.

Another man then walks over and stands in front of the group. He puts his hands on the shoulders of Gooding and the accuser, leans over and appears to be talking to the entire group.

Things get a little weird then … as the man gyrates, drawing attention to his crotch. It appears Gooding and his GF playfully paw at his crotch. The guy also takes a drink away from Gooding. A few more people join the group, and everyone’s casually chatting for a few more minutes. They all walk away — separately but in the same direction — about 3 minutes after the initial touching. There’s no argument. 

However, about 30 minutes later … Cuba and Claudine were downstairs lounging on a couch and making out. A man, who we’re told works security for the bar, was standing next to the couch when the accuser approached him and started arguing.

We’ve blurred her face to protect her identity, but she appears to say, “Yes, he did.” She repeated that after the security guard shook his head. It’s unclear if Cuba heard their conversation, but he got up, stumbled and then walked right past the accuser and left.

Claudine and the security guard followed right behind him. 

Check out the clips below. We don’t know what went on, but it certainly isn’t looking too good for Cuba. He was arrested Thursday and booked for misdemeanor forcible touching and sexual abuse in the third degree.

Scary Chic: Jeremy Scott Shows Monster Moschino Collection at Universal Studios Hollywood

In the era of fashion-as-entertainment, it’s amazing it took this long for a designer to stage a full-fledged runway extravaganza at an actual Hollywood studio.
Jeremy Scott did just that Friday night in Los Angeles, bringing a monster of a Moschino Resort collection to Universal Studios’ eerily blissful suburban Americana stand-in used for “Leave it To Beaver,” “The Munsters” and “Desperate Housewives.”
It was the culmination of a lifelong dream for the designer, who has ambitions to make a film of his own one day a la Tom Ford, and remembered the first time he visited Universal Studios from Kansas City at age 13 in typical aw-shucks fashion: “We stayed at the Sheraton. I was with my family, and I told the other people in the hot tub I was going to be a famous star one day…I didn’t really think I was going to be a fashion star.”
The show was scripted from the moment guests entered the gate of the studio, hallowed ground for Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg – and for Hollywood’s most prolific costume designer, Edith Head. With a short video of Scott as tour guide, guests took the backlot tour trams, rolling past sets for “Psycho” and “Jaws” and

Missy Elliott Shows Love To H-Town Hottie Megan Thee Stallion

Gunna Performs At Irving Plaza

She’s caught the love and attention of Drake and Trey Songz, and now it seems like another music legend is a fan of Hot Girl Meg.

On Thursday super producer and Missy Elliott posted a video of herself bopping to one of the rapper’s album cuts, Sex Talk.

“Y’all the mf goat @missymisdemeanorelliott bumping SEX TALK I damn near fainted,” Meg wrote on Instagram resharing the video.

2019 seems to be the year of the stallion as the Houston rapper continues to rise after the release of her debut album, Fever.

As we know Missy doesn’t hesitate to show love to the upcoming rap generation who are able to rise through the ranks because of her efforts.

Fever is a tribute to the blaxploitation era and places Meg as a Pam Grier like figure in the center of her own narrative of a raw, independent, savvy young woman who does what she wants with whom she wants.

Earlier in the week Meg and rapper Wolf Tyla had a heated exchange over one of the tracks on the album Simon Says, produced by Juicy J of Three 6 Mafia. It all came to a head when Tyla shared on social that she would have appreciated a shout out on the songwriting credits.

Meg, whose real name is Megan Pete has had a year with a range of emotions, from losing her momager Holly Peter in March, maintaining her studies as a junior at Texas Southern University, to the success of her album.

With all of her ups and downs in 2019, it seems that Meg is ready to ride off into superstardom.

Alabama’s ban of the Arthur gay wedding episode shows how many people still see queerness as perversion

Alabama’s ban of the Arthur gay wedding episode shows how many people still see queerness as perversion


Alabama’s ban of the <em>Arthur</em> gay wedding episode shows how many people still see queerness as perversion

Author Michael Arceneaux discusses Alabama Public Television’s decision to ban an episode of children’s program Arthur in which a gay wedding takes place. 

A month ago, after speaking at a panel during the National Antiracist Festival at American University, an elementary school teacher approached me and asked if I could recommend any LGBTQ children’s books featuring characters of color. She spoke of her struggles to not only implement LGBTQ-related material into her classwork, but to then find material that didn’t feature only white characters. I told her that, unfortunately, no books came to mind as such material remains difficult to find even for adults, but then I circled back to how challenging it must have been to get approval to discuss queerness and transness with children.

After she provided a few more specifics, my response was blunt. “See, they still look at it as perversion.”

Both of us recently recalled that exchange in light of reports that Alabama Public Television refused to air an episode of the children’s series Arthur because it featured a gay wedding. In the episode, which aired nationwide on May 13th, Arthur and his friends attend their teacher Mr. Ratburn’s ceremony to his partner. While others merely either shrugged their shoulders or told their timelines, “I knew that teacher was gay,” Mike McKenzie, the director of programming at APT, opted to throw a fit.

In an email to AL.com, McKenzie argued: “Parents have trusted Alabama Public Television for more than 50 years to provide children’s programs that entertain, educate and inspire. More importantly—although we strongly encourage parents to watch television with their children and talk about what they have learned afterwards—parents trust that their children can watch APT without their supervision. We also know that children who are younger than the ‘target’ audience for Arthur also watch the program.”

It appears that show creator WGBH and broadcaster PBS alerted local stations in April about the episode, titled “Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone.” My trouble with them alerting them of the episode in advance is that it gives the indication that there is something wrong with two consenting adults who love each other deciding to have a ceremony for what is effectively a contract that is perfectly legal, given it is recognized by the state.

Some would say, “Think of the children!” I would say in response, “Kudos to you for confirming you are a bigoted fool.”

WGBH and PBS should not have opened the door for Mike McKenzie to present his prejudices as an act of virtue, as though it is some great consideration of the precious minds of children. If the station felt the episode was inappropriate, they wouldn’t have made it—much less opted to air it. If Arthur and the crew were tipping to a wedding featuring two people of opposite genders, McKenzie would not have batted an eye.

McKenzie’s position is a testament to anti-queer biases and the ignorance that informs them. To wit, in 2005, this same station pulled an episode of Arthur that featured a bunny character named Bunny who had two mothers. Considering most of the gay parents in this country are in the South and predominately lesbian, the episode spoke to an obvious reality for many—especially those living ‘round their way.

However, Alabama Public Television’s executive then-director Allan Pizzato told AL.com at the time, “Our feeling is that we basically have a trust with parents about our programming. This program doesn’t fit into that.”

Consider all of the romance and innuendo children see in animated works. Then think about the violence, which you would think is far worse than two men getting married and a bunny rabbit having two mommies. Not so to self-righteous homophobes who don’t clutch their Bibles so much as they do the patriarchy.

What Alabama Public Television said then and is saying now is that there is only one way to be, and if a character differs from that, they do not make for appropriate viewing. Moreover, when it comes to homosexuality in particular, APT has reminded us that, no matter how mildly you present it, some folks’ minds will rush to sexual acts.

This is honestly no different than some former Indiana lawmaker and homophobic preacher recently arguing that Pete Buttigieg must denounce fisting and rimming in order to become the next president of the United States. Yes, seriously. In a blog entitled “Pete, Since You Brought It Up, How ‘Gay’ Are You?” Don Boys basically says Buttigieg needs to promise the country he doesn’t have AIDS, and that yes, he is gay, but not, like, really into the butt stuff.

“I don’t hate Pete or his lover or any other homosexual, but I will not give them a pass when they or others suggest that ‘gayness’ is not perversion, that it is normal, maybe even admirable,” Boys writes.

Boys sounds like an utter idiot, but he speaks to the mindset held by the same men who have banned two Arthur episodes with any queer characters. To these people, we are incapable of romance or subtlety; we solely exist through sexual acts which, by the way, are really, really icky, unnatural, ungodly, and not appropriate for anyone—much less for God’s precious children who already watch women get depicted as conquests in far too many fairy tales.

Those people literally thought Arthur’s gay teacher and that guest character’s mamas were going to stage a Godless gay orgy on PBS just to soil the minds of their kids. It’s easy to mock and rightfully stokes anger, but it’s also quite depressing. It is a reminder that, for a lot of us, our basic existence is inappropriate. No matter how we present ourselves as “just like the straight people”—even in a kiddie-crafted tone—their minds will take us to the gutter.

In their minds, we are perverts. When they see us, they hope their children don’t view us as anything other than wrong. Because they don’t want their children to become us. And we are going to spend all of our lives trying to prove otherwise—sometimes to no avail.

Megan Barton-Hanson’s terrifying Instagram post shows pal being attacked by thugs in London as she rages ‘This s*** needs to stop’

MEGAN Barton-Hanson shared harrowing footage of a close pal being brutally beaten on the streets of London, as she told fans “this s*** must stop!”

The Love Island star had been to a Ru Paul’s Drag Race event with her hair stylist before he was mugged near Oxford Circus.

Megan Barton-Hanson shared footage of a close pal being mugged on the streets of London

The 25-year-old TV personality shared footage of the attack – which she later clarified wasn’t filmed by herself – telling followers: “So this happened last night… My best friend that works f****ng hard for everything he owns got mugged… So disgusting. How safe our streets actually are?!”

In the traumatic clip, Megan’s friend can be seen in a yellow jumper as he lies helplessly on the floor in an attempt to defend himself from the attacking thugs.

After sharing the video, Megan told fans: “Makes me so angry! The amount of people carrying knives recently too, so lucky he just has bruises and a broken cheek.”

Telling followers that “this s*** needs to stop!”, Megan went on to discuss the recent burglary of her home.

Megan questioned the safety of London’s streets following the crime
Instagram

She ranted: “First people come into my home and rob everything I worked my arse off for. Nights stripping physically sweating and people come and steal diamond rings, Chanel bags but also the sentimental things that can never be replaced. Then my friend, minding his own damn business gets attacked by three men and gets mugged.”

Megan’s pal has since updated his own social media to reassure friends and clients on his condition.


Megan recently admitted to photoshopping a dramatic makeover snap that won praise by fans and celebrity pals.

Her photoshop admission comes after she told The Sun that she is so body conscious her Instagram pictures are edited by a team of professionals.

She said: “I spent the whole of last summer in a bikini on TV and I post sexy pictures on Instagram but they’re edited and photo shopped by professionals.”

New Study Shows Married Women Do More Housework Than Single Moms

Raising a responsible daughter.

Source: kate_sept2004 / Getty

One might assume having some assistance around the house may help moms have more time for work, rest or leisure, but unfortunately having a partner does not mean you have an extra set of hands to assist with chores.

A new study from sociologists at the University of Maryland, University of Texas, and University of Southern California found that married women end up doing more housework than single moms, Fortune reports.

Why? Put simply, men aren’t helping.

“Married mothers increase housework in part to meet expectations about home-cooked meals, clean clothes, and well-kept houses—behavior integral to contemporary definitions of appropriate behavior for wives and mothers,” authors Joanna Pepin, Liana C. Sayer, and Lynne M. Casper wrote in the study.

Even though people preach equality professionally, that sense of equal stake in the household hasn’t translated into our personal lives.

“Marriage remains a gendered institution that ratchets up the demand for housework and childcare through essentialist beliefs that women are naturally focused on home and hearth,” the authors write, leaving women drowning in housework over rest or sleep.

“The research is really showing that men are not necessarily contributing in ways that are bringing about equality in the home,” author Pepin of UT-Austin told Fortune.

It’s important to point out that sharing chores actually increases the sex lives and health of a couple’s relationship. A 2002 study found that “a division of household labor perceived to be fair ensures that partners feel respected while carrying out the tasks of daily life,” family ecology professor at the University of Alberta, Matt Johnson, explained in the research.

“Completing housework may or may not be enjoyable, but knowing that a partner is pulling his weight prevents anger and bitterness, creating more fertile ground in which a (satisfying) sexual encounter may occur.”

So it’s not just about who is in the house, it’s the contributions of that partner that help to create a healthy family environment, otherwise, your mate is just another person to take care of.

“Our findings suggest that it is not just an additional pair of hands that is important,” the authors write, “To whom those hands belong also matters.”

Beluga Whale

The PR team for Beluga whales is really killing it lately. In the span of 10 days we’ve seen two Beluga whale stories hit the news cycle for the most bizarre and incredulous of reasons. Just a few days ago, for instance, Norwegian officials revealed that they came into contact with a Beluga whale that may have been trained — by Russian naval forces — for spying missions.

If you have a tough time believing that story, you may have an even tougher time believing that a Beluga whale in Norway went diving after an iPhone someone accidentally dropped into the sea. What’s more, the whale managed to retrieve the iPhone and bring it back to the surface. Does it sound crazy? Of course. But not to worry, there’s actually video of the event which, naturally, has been blowing up all over Twitter and Reddit.

Spire.io – Over 50 Million Minutes of Calm Discovered!

Watching high-stress TV shows like Killing Eve calms me down. I decided to find out why

Watching high-stress TV shows like Killing Eve calms me down. I decided to find out why


Watching high-stress TV shows like <em>Killing Eve</em> calms me down. I decided to find out why

April is Stress Awareness Month. On HelloGiggles, we are talking about the routines, habits, and activities that unexpectedly keep us calm and grounded in a society where harmfulhigh levels of stress are dangerously normalized. (Trigger warning: This article discusses trauma from sexual assault.)

I was sitting next to my fiancée and we both had our eyes on the TV screen in front of us. Villanelle (Jodie Comer) had broken into Eve’s (Sandra Oh) home. Eve grabbed a knife; Villanelle, a trained and skilled assassin, obviously noticed and called her out on it. My fiancée and I eyed each other nervously throughout the scene, wondering if either woman would end up injured or dead. Eve ended the scene soaking wet and sweating—and I ended it feeling calmer and more in control than I had in days.

I started binging Killing Eve recently after reading about the show for several months on Autostraddle, my go-to resource on what queer women should be watching right now. It seemed like the perfect escape: We’d just recently finished You, the Lifetime psychological thriller that found new life on Netflix, and there was a high-stress media hole in my heart.

It may sound counterintuitive, but watching highly stressful media—horror movies like Jordan Peele’s Us, intense dramas like How to Get Away With Murder, and everyone’s favorite titular serial killer, Dexter—helps me relieve stress.

I’m not alone in feeling this way. According to research by Margee Kerr, a sociologist, fear researcher, and author of Scream: Chilling Adventures In the Science of Fear, a high-arousal negative stimuli, such as watching a horror movie or a show about murder, can improve mood significantly. Watching horror movies can also cause adrenaline levels to spike, resulting in viewers feeling less anxious or frustrated, according to a 2012 study.

“Viewing high-stress media can feel exhilarating and stress relieving,” says Dr. Allison Forti, an assistant professor at Wake Forest University’s Counseling and Human Services graduate program. “Two defense mechanisms, displacement and projection, can explain this. Rather than confront the co-worker who gossiped about you at work, your frustration and anger release through the serial killer’s violent acts in the movie.”

Consuming high-stress media can serve as a way to channel negative emotions like humiliation, rejection, shame, anger, regret, and spite.

This isn’t a universal experience. Kerr’s research only included people who wanted to voluntarily scare themselves, and Dr. Forti explains that some people experience serious psychological distress when they watch high-stress media: “The sympathetic nervous system activates and the body gears up to fight or flee.” So while someone like me, who loves fictional serial killers and haunted houses, might feel happier after a heart-racing experience, this probably won’t be true for people who hate those things.

It doesn’t entirely surprise me that the more I’ve been binge watching Killing Eve, the less stressed out I am.

My adoration for watching high-stress shows as a coping mechanism actually started after I was raped in college, when I found watching The Vampire Diaries and Dexter oddly cathartic. I felt like I’d lost my own sense of agency and control, and there was something comforting about actively choosing to make my heart pound instead of waiting for it to happen because I’d woken up from another nightmare about the attack.

“When our stress level is escalated, using coping strategies that have a similar intensity can often provide a sense of relief,” explains psychotherapist Beth Scarlett.

“Sometimes we feel anxious or stressed, and we have trouble pinpointing the source of it. An intense show gives our brains a ‘reason’ for being wound up, which actually gives a sense of relief.”


After I was assaulted, I found it hard to wake up in the morning and concentrate in my classes; I’d start thinking about what happened and feel overcome by a surge of panic or anger. I wanted a way to deal with my emotions that wasn’t overwhelming and wouldn’t completely consume me. In addition to going to a therapist weekly, I started binge watching high-stress TV series in my dorm room.

The characters always felt a sense of urgency: Maybe they were on the edge of being caught as a serial killer; maybe they were the one being hunted. It gave me the opportunity to safely process my trauma.

“High-stress media can be used to channel unconscious or conscious thoughts and feelings that are too psychologically risky to address in a healthier way,” explains Dr. Forti. I didn’t feel it was safe to confront my rapist, but I could channel my anger into Season 5 of Dexter, where the titular character helps a rape victim track down her assailants and kill them.

The impact of high-stress media can be even more powerful if it’s a rewatch, like Dexter was for me after I was assaulted. I’d already watched the show in its entirety in high school. “Many people find comfort in watching and re-watching movies where they know the sequence of the story,” explains psychotherapist Dr. Dana Dorfman. “This knowledge provides a sense of a mastery over scary material, and offers an escape and distraction from the unpredictability of real life.”

High-stress TV shows and movies can also serve as a safe way to expose yourself to something that scares you or makes you nervous, Dr. Dorfman explains.

“This gradual exposure desensitizes the person to the stimulus and reconditions the brain to respond differently,” she says, and the viewer retrains their brain to react more calmly to stressful content.

Watching scenes of Lumen surviving rape in Dexter’s fifth season helped me cope with the trauma of my own assault without leaving my twin XL bed. Seeing a main character onscreen dealing with the impacts of post-traumatic stress, like nightmares and panic attacks, helped me realize that I was capable of healing someday too—even without the help of a serial killer to literally murder my rapist.


It’s been seven years since the assault and my daily life is nowhere near as stressful. I’m planning a wedding with my partner and balancing my career and social life with my disability, but I also have a lot of support. I don’t feel the same sense of urgency every morning when I wake up as I did for months after I was assaulted. But I still reach for the remote to turn on shows like Killing Eve and You, which my partner and I finished almost immediately after starting it. Dr. Dorfman calls this perspective building, which is when viewers use high-stress media to help them keep the stress of everyday life in perspective.

My stress now is mainly over minor things like taking my cat to the vet because she has an infection or realizing when the day is almost over that I don’t have a key ingredient for dinner. But stress can still take a toll on me. A couple of weeks ago, my partner came home exhausted after several crises at work and I was drained after planning out an enormous project.

As soon as we sat down to eat dinner, I suggested Killing Eve, which we’d recently started watching. “You know killers always make us feel better,” I said, hovering over the Hulu play button next to Sandra Oh’s distressed expression and incredible hair.

She laughed. At the end of the episode, when we were met with an enthralling cliffhanger, she asked, “One more?”

Immune System Therapy Shows Wider Promise Against Cancer

(Anna Carlstrand via AP)

ATLANTA (AP) — A treatment that helps the immune system fight deadly blood cancers is showing early signs of promise against some solid tumors, giving hope that this approach might be extended to more common cancers in the future.

The treatment, called CAR-T therapy, involves genetically modifying some of a patient’s own cells to help them recognize and attack cancer. Richard Carlstrand of Long Key, Florida, had it more than a year ago for mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer of the lining of the lungs.

“We were going into unknown territories” to try this, he said, but now he shows no sign of cancer and “I couldn’t be happier.”

Results on his and other cases were discussed Sunday at an American Association for Cancer Research conference in Atlanta.

The first CAR-T therapies were approved in 2017 for some leukemias and lymphomas. After being altered in the lab, the modified immune system cells are returned to the patient through an IV, which puts them right where the cancer is — in the blood.

But that approach doesn’t work well if the cells have to travel far through the bloodstream to get to tumors in the lung, breast, colon, or other places.

“Solid tumors are notorious for not letting the immune cells enter,” and not enough may make it in to have an effect, said Dr. Prasad Adusumilli of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

A bigger worry is that the proteins on solid tumor cells that these therapies target also are found on normal cells at lower levels, so the therapy might harm them, too.

Adusumilli helped design a new CAR-T to try to avoid these problems and tested it on 19 patients with mesothelioma and two others with lung and breast cancer, respectively, that had spread to the chest lining. About 150,000 patients in the U.S. each year face this situation.

The modified cells were injected directly into the chest where the tumors were. A genetic safety switch was added so a medicine could be given to destroy the cells if they caused harm.

After the therapy, one patient was able to have surgery and radiation, and is doing well 20 months later with no further treatment. Fifteen others were well enough to start on a drug that boosts the immune system in a different way.

Eleven of the 15 have been studied long enough to report results. Two had signs of cancer disappear for about a year, although one later relapsed. Six saw their tumors shrink. Three saw their cancer worsen.

There were no severe side effects although some patients had temporarily low blood counts and fatigue.

Grants from the federal government and foundations paid for the work and a larger study is planned. Sloan Kettering has licensed the treatment to Atara Biotherapeutics and may get payments from it, as may Adusumilli.

A second study tested a different CAR-T therapy in 10 children and adults with advanced sarcomas — cancers that originate in various soft tissues or bones. Unlike other CAR-Ts that are usually given just once, this one was given multiple times, up to 15 in one patient’s case, if there were signs it was helping.

“From a single blood draw we make a large amount of the CAR-T cells and then we freeze them” and give them through an IV as needed, said Dr. Shoba Navai of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

Two of the 10 patients had all signs of cancer disappear, one for 17 months and the other for nearly three years, so far. Three others had their disease stabilized. Five worsened despite treatment.

Side effects were similar to the other study. The therapy seems safe “and we have early signs that this treatment approach may help,” Navai said.

Several foundations and charities paid for the work.

“These studies are showing there may be a path forward in solid tumors” with CAR-T therapies, said Dr. Louis Weiner, director of the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center and one of the conference leaders. It may hold promise for some cancers of the stomach, breast, colon, lung and other areas, he said.

Cost is a big issue — current CAR-T therapies are around $ 400,000 but can be made for far less than that in research centers. Doctors say they hope the cost will come down as more come on the market and find their way to wider use.

Oprah Announces New Shows to Air on Apple TV Plus

This past week in Cupertino, California, at Apple’s news release, Oprah Winfrey unveiled the content she plans to roll out onto Apple’s new streaming content service, Apple TV Plus.
Although not many details were disclosed, we do know the talk show maven will be bringing her book club to the screen by interviewing renowned authors who will broadcast on all Apple devices.  Additionally, two documentary projects are in the works. The first, “Toxic Labor,” will document the impact of workplace harassment, in a multipart series.

“The Apple platform has allowed me to do what I do in a whole new way,” said Winfrey, “connecting people and taking it to a whole new level because they have a billion pockets, y’all.”

Other prominent figures at the event included Steven Spielberg, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and J.J. Abrams.

The deal was announced in June of last year; but up until this point, the details have been pretty hush, hush. From a previous announcement, we do know Apple is investing $ 1 billion into original programming and planned on bringing on big-name producers in order to execute the tall order. “Ms. Winfrey will create original programs that embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world,” stated Apple in the release.

This fall, Apple will release its new TV streaming service, Apple TV Plus, in an effort to support the new content. The service will launch through the Apple Store and will include live streams across all Apple devices. In a statement, Apple says Apple TV Plus will be “the new home for the world’s most creative storytellers featuring exclusive original shows, movies, and documentaries.”

Apple is clearly positioning itself to be a Netflix competitor. It will be interesting to see how all of this pans out.

Beaming for the cameras the 30-year-old looked stunning as she sported a deep tan, which was complemented by her white silk crop top and cream bodycon skirt.

The former Miss Liverpool wore her long blonde hair down in loose waves, and added gold earrings and two gold necklaces that lay between her impressive cleavage.

Christine’s top appeared to be working overtime as the tie-front top struggled to contain her 32E chest.

The former model braved the cool spring night to go bare legged in the fitted cream ribbed skirt, which she teamed with gold strappy sandals.

New report shares early details about Apple’s first five original TV shows

Apple streaming service

We’re exactly one week away from Apple’s “show time” event at the Steve Jobs Theater, and although the company has yet to share any details about the event, the expectation is that the veil will be lifted on Apple’s streaming service. And now, thanks to a report from The New York Times, we know that five original series are already done filming, and will presumably be ready in time for the launch of the service later this year.

According to the report, five series have wrapped, with “around a half dozen more” on the verge of completion. But the people behind those shows reportedly have not been told when they can expect their shows to debut. All they’ve been told is that their shows will stream on the Apple service “later this year, probably fall.” This has, understandably, given some of the talent cause for concern, especially with a big reveal event just days away.

Iceberg, But Make It Fashion. Here Are 20 of Karl Lagerfeld’s Most Spectacular Chanel Fashion Shows

Legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld died at the age of 85 on Tuesday in Paris, leaving behind a larger-than-life legacy. Although the German-born Lagerfeld had his own eponymous line and was the creative director of Italian luxury label Fendi for over five decades, the name he’s most associated with is the French luxury house Chanel, where he served as their high-profile creative director since 1983.

During his time at Chanel, “the Kaiser” as he was nicknamed, helped transform the fashion and luxury industry as we know it, turning out collections that were as witty as they were elegant, a shining example of what it means to breathe new life into a legacy brand. To that end, Lagerfeld could draw as much inspiration from the life and times of Coco Chanel as he might from campy, colorful aspects of pop culture, as evidenced by his fantastical themes from Chanel shows that ranged from a full replica of the Eiffel Tower in the Grand Palais to a fully Chanel-branded grocery store, complete with shopping carts that show-goers stormed after the show.

In memory of Lagerfeld’s immense creative legacy, here’s a look back at his 20 most memorable Chanel shows of all time.

Fall/Winter RTW 2008: Chanel Carousel

For Chanel’s Fall/Winter RTW 2008 show, Lagerfeld constructed a full working carousel in the center of the Chanel runway, where models rode on larger-than-life replicas of the house’s famous quilted accessories after they took their turn on the runway. At the end of the show, Lagerfeld exited the rotating carousel to take his final bow.

Chanel Spring/Summer RTW 2009: 31 Rue Cambon

For Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2009 show, Lagerfeld recreated the iconic Chanel flagship store, 31 Rue Cambon, to-scale in the brand’s usual choice of venue, the Grand Palais. Lagerfeld’s wry sense of humor was on full display with the show’s soundtrack, a mix of Madness’ “Our House.”

Chanel Resort 2009: Synchronized Swimmers in Miami

Lagerfeld turned up the heat when he showed Chanel’s 2009 resort collection poolside at the Raleigh Hotel in South Beach, Miami. While the collection was beautiful, Karl might have upstaged his own designs by asking the U.S. synchronized swimming team to do a fantastic closing performance.

Chanel Spring/Summer RTW 2010: Bucolic Beauty

Lagerfeld once again held court at the stately Grand Palais, this time to transform it into a bucolic barnyard paradise, resplendent with a Chanel-themed barn, hay bales, rockabilly high fashion, and a surprise Lily Allen performance.

Chanel Fall/Winter RTW 2010: Iceberg, But Make It Fashion

What’s cooler than cool? How about an actual iceberg, the ultimate accessory for a Winter Wonderland set that matched the shaggy, fur-embellished designs that Lagerfeld sent down the runway.

Resort 2010: Chanel Takes the Venice Lido

Lagerfeld paid homage to Chanel’s namesake designer, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel when he staged his 2010 Resort show on a boardwalk runway along the romantic Venice Lido, an enviable destination fashion show.

Chanel Pre-Fall 2013: Linlithgow Palace

Scotland served as both the locale and the muse for Lagerfeld’s Pre-Fall collection, which he showed at the darkly beautiful Linlithgow Palace. The palace, which was the birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots, housed models who stomped down a blazing brazier-lit runway in tweeds and tartans, that honored the late monarch as much as they cheekily referenced Coco Chanel’s time spent in Scotland, with her lover, the Duke of Westminster.

CHanel Fall 2013 Couture: Post-Apocalypse Now

Science fiction took center stage at Lagerfeld’s post-apocalyptic theater for the 2013 Chanel couture show. Models walked out from a deconstructed center stage to walk between aisles of viewers who sat in theater seats in the Grand Palais.

Chanel Pre-Fall 2014: Everything’s Bigger in Texas

Full-fledged Americana might not seem like a fit for a French fashion house, but under Lagerfeld’s direction, Chanel’s annual Métiers d’Art show was one wild ride. Beginning with a drive-in movie before the show and ending with a mechanical bull at the after-party hosted at the Chanel saloon, Lagerfeld’s take on Texas was fit for a spaghetti Western, down to an unfortunate Native American headdress that drew wide criticism.

Chanel Fall/Winter RTW 2014: Grocery Shopping with Karl Lagerfeld

Going to the supermarket was no chore at the Fall/Winter 2014 Chanel show, where Karl Lagerfeld painstakingly recreated a fully-stocked grocery store with all Chanel-branded wares, ranging from household cleaning items to pasta. Following the presentation, during which models walked down “aisles” with Chanel shopping carts, attendees stormed the set to loot the grocery store’s Chanel offerings.

Spring/Summer RTW 2015: Vive la Chanel!

Lagerfeld took inspiration from protest culture with his showing for the Spring/Summer 2015 show. Models took to the Parisian “streets” of the Grand Palais for a final walk that manifested in a pseudo-protest (complete with signs that read: “He for She” and “Ladies First” as well as Jamie Bouchert leading chants with a megaphone) that brought to mind women’s liberation.

Fall 2015 Couture: Casino Chanel

Casino Royale? So last season. Welcome to Casino Chanel, where Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart, and mother-daughter duo Lily-Rose Depp and Vanessa Paradis all took to the roulette tables as models slinked around them. Lagerfeld’s trademark humor was at play, with the Chanel bride resembling a very chic Elvis Presley impersonator.

Spring/Summer RTW 2016: Fly Chanel Airlines

Attendees were invited to fly high — well, high fashion, that is — with Chanel airlines at the brand’s Spring/Summer 2016 show, where the Grand Palais became an airline terminal for the world’s most stylish jet setters (traveling, of course, with some seriously enviable Chanel luggage).

Fall/Winter RTW 2017: Chanel Conquers the Last Frontier

Leave it to the Kaiser to cap off a space-themed collection with the launch of custom Chanel rocket in the Grand Palais — all set to the dulcet tones of Elton John’s “Rocket Man,” of course.

Resort 2017: Chanel in Havana, Cuba

While Chanel was critiqued for the decision to show luxury fashion (including some questionable references, like military fatigues and Che Guevara-esque berets) in the political climate, the show coincided with doors being opened to the U.S. under the Obama administration after nearly five decades.

Chanel Fall 2017 Couture: Eiffel Tower

Lagerfeld recreated the Eiffel Tower to scale for his Fall 2017 couture show for Chanel, in what might be the most on-the-nose homage to the City of Love.

Chanel Fall/Winter RTW 2018: Into the Woods

Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2018 show was a return to nature — or rather, the idea of nature, as Lagerfeld recreated a lush autumnal forest within the confines of the Grand Palais for models to show off his fall collection.

Chanel Spring/Summer RTW 2019: His Beach Is Better

Life’s a beach — at least, according to Karl Lagerfeld, who brought the beach to Paris Fashion Week by recreating a tropical escape, complete with a sandy runway, real ocean waves and an on-duty lifeguard. Models even walked barefoot and carried their Chanel shoes, natch.

Chanel Spring 2019 Couture: Villa Chanel

For Chanel’s most recent show, they created a villa that would look completely at home in the Italian countryside, a lovely complement to the show’s Rococo influences. Models strutted down the park-inspired runways with David Bowie-esque pompadours, but it was Lagerfeld’s absence at the show due to tiredness that people latched onto most about this couture collection.

Phoebe English Shows Fall 2019 Collection in Exhibition Alongside 30 Marionettes

EXHIBITIONIST: Phoebe English showcased pieces from her fall 2019 women’s wear offering at the Morley Gallery in South London at an exhibition called “Inanimate, Animate. (Only) Half the Reflection,” a show in two parts, the second of which features 30 charming marionettes wearing to-scale pieces from her archive.
The person-sized clothes, which made their debut during the men’s shows last month in a presentation, were suspended from the ceiling on rotating mechanisms that afforded close-up inspection of the intricate techniques that have earned her a loyal following.
There was a black pinafore dress with T-shaped cuts outlined with wide satin stitch embroidery, and a delicate white mesh harness.
“We call this coat, ‘The Coat of Dreams (and of Nightmares)’,” said English, fondly nodding to a black topper made from a great many patches of recycled black fabric, each piece encased in fine silk tulle. The kind of deceptively simple, thing that a cursory glance sets the mind to thinking, “Right, black coat” but an up-close eye-ball reveals all its complexities.
The space was scented by Timothy Han, who used the aromas of birch tar and dry wheat from his “On the Road” fragrance to emphasize English’s focus on natural sustainable fabrics, and Johanna Burnheart performed

Gemma Collins’ mum Joan shows off her incredible collection of dolls on Instagram

AS far as hobbies go, Gemma Collins’ mum Joan sure has her hands full looking after her daughters ‘diva’ demands, but it turns out she has another hidden hobby- collecting vintage dolls!

The GC’s famous mum – who shares the same name as the Dynasty actress- has been showing off her impressive collection of dolls on Instagram lately.

Taking up a vast amount of space in Joan’s home, the dolls come in all shapes, sizes and styles.

When she’s not playing her part as Gemma’s agony aunt on Towie, Joan spends her time collecting antiques and vintage items to take centre stage in her Essex pad.

The Essex star even has names for some of her prized possessions, with one named Bella, another called Kitty Christmas and a third Tricksey Bell.

In a few images Joan even snaps photos which combine her love of gardening and the dolls, as she places them in her plant decorations.

However, one shot that divided her followers was of singular baby doll’s heads placed in a glass vase.

“That’s a wee bit creepy!” commented one fan.

Another said: “Erm what.”

A third praised Joan’s creativity, saying: “Fabulous idea.”

It’s not all about dolls over on Joan’s Instagram though, as she shared a video of herself and Gemma’s friends wearing masks of her face as they supported her on Dancing On Ice over the weekend.

Last weekend Gemma, 37, returned to the ice following a nasty fall during her performance the previous weekend that left her with painful injuries.

Now, Dan Whiston, the show’s associate creative director, exclusively told The Sun Online that he believes that this marked the beginning of a Dancing On Ice “curse”.

Ice skater Dan said of last week’s excessive injuries: “It was really, really awful. It was almost as if Gemma’s fall from last week’s show… it was a sign of things to come.

“Everyone was getting injured. She’s got black knees, they’re so bruised, she hurt her chest as well.

“People are pushing the boundaries so there are going to be these injuries.”

But it wasn’t just Gemma who has fallen in recent weeks, as her incident has seemed to have caused a domino effect among the other contestants.


Among the injured were Melody Thornton, who fell and hit her chin on the ice last week, Wes Nelson, who badly injured his knee during training, Jane Danson, who fainted during dress rehearsals, Ryan Sidebottom and most recently James Jordan.

But the creative director isn’t worried about the injuries putting the contestants off, adding: “They’re kind an army of robots this year, they’re not going to let anything get them down.

“Only the strongest will survive now as dramatic as that sounds.”

This London Exhibit Shows How Christian Dior Changed Fashion Forever

LONDON—The rich and powerful have long delighted in wearing Dior. At the Victoria and Albert Museum’s blockbuster exhibition, Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams, you can see the dresses worn by Princess Margaret, ballet dancer Margot Fonteyn, and several more recent designs shown off on the red carpet by actresses including Jennifer Lawrence.

“Christian Dior only designed for his ‘maison’ for ten years (owing to his sudden death in 1957),” said Oriole Cullen, the curator of the V&A’s biggest fashion exhibition since its blockbuster Alexander McQueen show, Savage Beauty, in 2015.

“Still, his name is known all over the world, speaking to the legacy of the six talented designers that have carried the name forward,” she added, referring to the half-dozen artistic directors that have succeeded Dior, including Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Raf Simons, Gianfranco Ferre, and, most strikingly, John Galliano, who was fired from Dior in 2011, after being caught on film shouting “I love Hitler,” and anti-Semitic slurs. (He is now creative director of Maison Margiela.)

Toya Wright Shows Off Her Toned Thighs And Calls Herself A ‘Classic’

Toya Wright’s latest photo has her fans in awe. She’s showing off a lot of skin, and her message is really bold, but fans agree with her words. Check out Toya’s latest photo here.

‘In a world full of trends, I want to remain a classic. 🏆’ Toya captioned her photo.

Someone told her, ‘You’re already a CLASSIC!!!’ and another follower said ‘I want my legs toned like that!!’

One other supporter wrote this: ‘I guess I’ll go to the gym now. I really wanted to sleep in, but Toya’s thigh muscle spoke to my spirit,’ and a person addressed Toya’s tattoo on her thigh: ‘I like you and your fam, please don’t take this the wrong way but the thigh tattoo is terrible.’

A commenter praised Toya and said ‘You are truly the only woman in the world I would love just to say hi to me. You’re so amazing from your voice to your beauty. Absolutely amazing.’

One of Toya’s fans noticed her pose: ‘@toyawright hunty your pose is your brand babe…..own it cause I can’t see another copping that….you go Queen😘

Toya recently had a big announcement for her fans and followers. She was more than proud and happy to announce her fans, or better said, Reign Rushing’s fans, that the cute bundle of joy is walking!

She will be celebrating her very first year soon, so this achievement comes just in time. Fans could hear Toya having tears in her voice.

Some TV shows are better off binged. Others, not so much.

In Binged, Mashable breaks down why we binge-watch, how we binge-watch, and what it does to us. Because binge-watching is the new normal.


Nothing against You, but as far as television shows go, it didn’t do great when it aired on Lifetime. The fun, pulpy show about a bookstore manager who becomes dangerously obsessed with a woman came and went in the summer of 2018 with barely a peep from Twitter or the TV cultural hive mind. It’s not surprising that Lifetime cancelled You, but in a savvy move from Netflix, the streaming giant picked up the show and renewed it for a second season.

When You showed up on Netflix, magic happened. It became an almost overnight hit, with a reported 40 million viewers of the first season. Outlets wrote extensively about its bonkers plot and characters, hashtags were born, and what had been an obscure network satire became must-see TV.  Read more…
