How Trump Made Dr. Ruth Break Her Political Silence: ‘It’s So Sad What’s Happening’

Dr. Ruth, the pocket-sized 91-year-old sex therapist, has officially put me on notice. “Be careful, journalist!” she shrieks in her thick German accent. “If anybody doesn’t write well [about me], I can still put five bullets into the little red circle!”

She’s kidding (I hope), but the 4-foot-7 sexpert is indeed handy with the steel, having briefly served as a sniper in the Haganah, a Jewish paramilitary force in then-British-controlled Palestine—that is, until an artillery shell exploded at her feet in 1948. The injuries she suffered to her legs were so bad it took her months of intensive physical therapy to regain the ability to walk.

“I was lucky, I never killed anybody…but I could have,” she tells me. “And I was so fortunate that the physician fixed me. I’m a black-diamond skier and can dance the whole night—if I find a good partner!”

Cardi B. Album Artist Launches Brand Calling Out Virgil Abloh’s Silence on Diversity

Nicky Chulo is a graphic designer who has helped create album covers for household names including Cardi B. However, he views his art as more than just work; it’s a vessel he uses to engage with contemporaries and create dialogue through creativity. For instance, his opinion about the lack of inclusion in the fashion industry and criticism about Virgil Abloh inspired him to create his own fashion brand.

As creative director at Louis Vuitton, Abloh has a high-ranking position in fashion. Last month, Abloh shared a behind-the-scenes look at a party for his brand Off-White. The footage sparked a firestorm of backlash on social media from critics who called the Off-White team too white and noted that there appeared to be no black art directors for a brand owned by a black man.

Chulo created his own apparel line called “Off-Black” in what he says is to call Abloh to task while using the proceeds to empower black creatives.

In an interview with BLACK ENTERPRISE, Chulo explained how art can be a conduit for purposeful dialogue.

Nicky Chulo

Nicky Chulo

 

BLACK ENTERPRISE: Describe your background as a designer and your progression into your current role.
Nicky Chulo: I’m currently an art director at Atlantic Records with a background in graphic design and typography. I’ve been a graphic designer for almost 10 years now and it’s been a very wild ride. To keep it short, I came up in Northern Virginia, went to college in Atlanta (SCAD), and jumped into the corporate side of my career in New York circa 2013.

 

What are some of your other most impactful projects to date?
 
I have two. I would have to say hands down Trap Karaoke is the most impactful project I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of. Trap Karaoke is a very black, very safe, and very wholesome place where everyone can have a good time. A quick sum up for those who don’t know: Trap Karaoke is an event where you can sign up to perform your favorite song on stage in front of a crowd whose sole purpose is to sing along with and encourage you. On a few occasions, we’ve had people performing their song and the musician who created said song would join them on stage and perform. It’s a really beautiful thing.

 

The second most impactful project to me was working with Sylvan LaCue on his Apologies In Advance album. I had the pleasure of working with Sylvan and his team to develop the concept and visuals. Apologies In Advance is about growth, acceptance, how to deal with hardships, and the list goes on. It’s about healing and becoming the best person you can be and as a millennial, I can say it’s a priceless project. Jay Z gives us free game in the form of witty classy lyricism and Sylvan gives us free band-aids in the form of honest, vulnerable words.

 

Off-White

Nicky Chulo’s Off-Black apparel line

 

What inspired you to create your latest t-shirt design “Off-Black”?
What inspired Off-Black is the lack of diversity on Virgil’s “Off-White” team. Even if he’s just the “face” of the brand I believe he has a responsibility to speak up on behalf of diversity. I’m not discrediting the talent at Off-White, but knowing how hard I worked, especially as a designer of color, to get to where I am, it hurt a bit. Blood, sweat, tears, relationships, lack of sleep, and having to be twice if not three times as good to be seen. Having to be ready for anything at all times. We need more people of color in the room. We need more people of color inside the room.

 

 What type of dialogue are you looking to create with the “Off-Black” merchandise?

I remember Virgil once tweeted “Design is the freshest scam” and I thought that was a very very cornball tweet. Design is purposeful always.

Why were you initially hesitant to release the apparel? 

I was definitely hesitant at first. I knew if I was going to do this I had to be all in. In the end, I found out that Virgil was blocking people who reached out to him in his Instagram messages with the #Diversity hashtag, which I think is dismissive and irresponsible. You have a platform and we want answers to a particular question, why not give them to us? Right or wrong, why not be transparent? Lastly, my girl was like “Baby, you know you want to do this” and I was like “Angel, you are 100% right,” and I got busy.

 

How has the culture rallied behind your message?
Man. I mean the culture pulled up with open arms, dollars, and megaphones.

 

What will you do with the proceeds? 
 
One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to The Whlgns for Leaders Amongst Leaders. I think the conversation we’ve started is equally, if not more important, than the money we’re raising. I hope to inspire black creatives with this Hail Mary of a project. I’m grateful I was in a position to take this on.

Total Silence or Gossip Central: How Close Should You Be With Your Hairstylist?

For some women raised on the feel-good ethos of Steel Magnolias and Legally Blonde, where salons were sacred spaces and the bond between stylist and client almost therapeutic, a hair appointment is more than just a cut or color.

“We’re the first ones to know about cheating, pregnancies, wedding plans, job interviews, health changes, doctors visits,” Devin Toth, a stylist at Salon SCK in New York’s Upper East Side, told The Daily Beast. “I see many of my clients more than I see my parents or best friends.”

This weekend, Lady Gaga walked the red carpet of The Daily Front Row awards with longtime hairstylist Frederic Aspiras on her arm. The newly-single Gaga and Aspiras mugged for the cameras like professionals, holding hands, cheek-kissing, and even dancing for the paparazzi.

Loose Women’s Stacey Solomon swore Joe Swash to silence over pregnancy news – and then told everyone

STACEY Solomon swore boyfriend Joe Swash to silence over their pregnancy news – and then told everyone herself.

The 29-year-old Loose Women star – who announced the couple’s pregnancy earlier today – laughed as Joe, 37, told today’s panel show how Stacey had laid down the law and then found herself unable to keep the news secret herself.

Stacey revealed the story on today’s Loose Women

He said: “She gave me ground rules about what I could and could not say and then I bumped into Alison Hammond and she gave me a big hug and said congratulations.”

Stacey also admitted she found herself confused about who she had told about the pregnancy.

She said: “I don’t know what to do. I’m so elated and excited. I can’t believe we’re so privileged to be having another child. I forgot who I told. I kept just doing this weird nod to people as if, ‘You know right?’

“We felt it was important to keep it to ourselves until we were safe. We didn’t find out until a certain point and then we had to let our families know and our children know. And there is a point when you just want to keep it to yourself.”

Joe revealed he is overjoyed with the baby news
The couple beamed with happiness about their news

Joe added: “It’s brilliant, I’m really chuffed. It’s just nice to have the secret out. We’ve had to keep it undercover and so it’s nice we can let people know.”

“We’re really blessed and excited. I can’t wait to see what our little kids going to look like.”

The couple both became emotional as they spoke about their future baby, with Stacey tearing up as she said: “I don’t know what to say, it’s such a massive thing and it’s happening to us so I just don’t know what to say.”

The celeb couple took to Instagram this morning to share the news with their followers.

Stacey shared a photo of the baby scan

Sharing a series of pictures of Stacey asleep, former EastEnders actor Joe, 37, was the first to make the exciting announcement on his social media page.

The star wrote: “Have been driving myself mad thinking that she’s bored senseless of me and can’t stand to be awake for longer than 10 minutes of my company…

“So you can imagine my delight to find out that she still loves me and my company very much she’s just been growing a baby.

“I can’t begin to describe how happy we are to be able to share this wonderful news. We’ve been so blessed with three incredible children that we’ve had the privilege of raising and we are forever grateful to have the chance to become parents to another wonderful child.

Emotional Stacey admitted that she can’t stop sobbing at their news

“It’s all very overwhelming and emotional and we couldn’t be happier right now.”

Emotional Stacey followed up with a picture of the scan, adding: “Every time I go to write anything I sob so… what he said @realjoeswashy”.

Taking to Twitter, the expectant star retweeted Joe’s message and added: “Words aren’t working for me right now so ditto @realjoeswash” alongside a crying and yellow heart emoji.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain shortly after making the announcement, Joe said of his girlfriend: “She’s all good, she’s excited.

“We just can’t wait for it to happen.”

When quizzed on the due date, Joe refused to give any details away – simply saying that he “can’t say now”.

Stacey and Joe first started dating in January 2016 and the former X Factor star is already mum to 10-year-old Zachary and six-year-old Leighton, who she shares with ex Dean Cox.

Meanwhile, Joe is dad to 11-year-old Harry who he shares with ex-fiancee Emma.

Earlier this week, Stacey alluded to the tiredness that she is suffering from in her pregnancy in a candid Instagram post.

The exhausted mum tickled her followers when she shared a photo of her two sons playing computer games on separate TVs while she watched Friends.

Stacey confessed that she had “totally given up on parenting” on the first day of half term, adding: “Feeling like I’ve been stripped of every ounce of energy for no reason at all today.”

Stacey tickled fans with this honest parenting post earlier this week

On Valentine’s Day, the pair prompted speculation that they had got engaged after Joe shared a sweet snap of the Loose Women star in bed with her left hand hidden.

Later in the day, both of the hands were in shot with no ring in sight – with Stacey saying just last month that she would accept a Poundland engagement ring from her husky-voiced beau.

But despite her marriage desires, Stacey recently teased that she and Joe are more likely to welcome a child together before they walk down the aisle.

This Valentine’s photo prompted speculation that the pair had got engaged last week


Writing in her New! column, the star said: “Joe and I have both spoken about it and neither of us are headstrong about having that marriage contract.

“We’re moving in together and probably want to have children before we get married.

“And when we’ve got through life and fed our children and they’re independent, that’s when I would think, ‘Should we get married?’”

Joe and Stacey moved in together in October last year.

‘I Thought It Was Fine.’ The Woman Behind the ‘I Made Queso’ Meme Breaks Her Silence About the Dip That Upset Everyone

Press secretaries are used to taking the heat, but it’s usually not about their cooking. So on Super Bowl 2019, George W. Bush’s former press secretary got a taste of a something a little different. Dana Perino was watching the New England Patriots’ lackluster battle against the Los Angeles Rams when she decided to share a photo of the bubbly queso she had made for the festivities.

“I made queso,” Perino, now a Fox News anchor, captioned her creation. A nice enough thing to do for a Super Bowl 53 party. But her detractors did not see it that way, and the “I made queso” meme was born.

Everyone seemed to agree: a good queso, this was not. The aesthetically unappetizing dish quickly inspired a ferocious meme offensive, the most prominent among them a macabre take from comedian Patton Oswalt.

It was the kind of moment that got thousands talking, pulling focus from the broadcast that millions were watching, but Perino didn’t even realize just how far her dip had spread until later.

“My dentist texted to say it was the best part of the Super Bowl,” she told TIME on Monday. “People were getting a good laugh about it all, but I didn’t realize the scope of it until the mid-day.

Perino, who now splits her time between anchoring FOX News’ The Daily Briefing and co-hosting The Five, admits that cooking is not her area of expertise.

The cheese dip may have looked awful to her harshest food critics online, but Perino insists it was a crowd pleaser.

“Well, I’m not much of a foodie, so I thought it was fine. Good with chips. My friend Russ Lucas ate three bowls of it.” She added that her girlfriends even said “it was quite good.”

As for Perino’s future contributions to parties? She may be retiring the pot.

“I think I’ll be asked only to bring wine to dinners in the future. And I will be happy to do that,” she said.
