The Challenge Host TJ Lavin Injured in BMX Accident in Vegas, Says He’s ’41 Still Having Fun’

The Challenge host TJ Lavin seriously injured himself in a BMX accident in Las Vegas over the weekend.

The 41-year-old opened up about the stunt-gone-wrong in a series of videos posted to his Instagram Story Monday.

“So I overshot the jump,” Lavin told the camera revealing his bloody face and a huge scar on his forehead.

“The new jump that I’ve been working on all month, I finally hit it… and overshot it by a lot,” Lavin said from his hospital bed, adding, “Yeah… 41, still having fun.”

Lavin wasn’t too shaken up over his mishap as he could be seen laughing and joking about the accident.

He later revealed he didn’t suffer any life-threatening injuries. “So, in case you were wondering, the cat scan was negative. No brain problems and the knee came back no knee problems,” he said. “So, just a little stitches here and there no worries. Keeping it real.”

Soon after, Lavin was released from the hospital and took viewers back to the scene of the accident to explain what happened moment-by-moment.

He also admitted he wasn’t wearing a helmet.

A rep for MTV did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

This is not the first time Lavin nearly lost his life.

In July, Lavin revealed he almost drowned in Costa Rica while filming The Challenge in 2010, months after crashing on his BMX bike yet again.

Nothing makes him more happy than being on his BMX bike. I get a lot of people ask how I deal with all the accidents, crashes (today’s crash). It’s simple. He absolutely loves to ride. When he doesn’t ride he’s miserable. Unless you’re an athlete or the wife/partner of them, it can be really hard to understand their mentality. I used to ask him to find another hobby or passion for fear of him hurting himself for good. But BMX is his passion, even if he can’t ride professionally. It’s hard when your body doesn’t do what your heart and mind still want it to do. The joy of being able to still ride out weighs the risks, in his mind. So he has a few more stitches, scars, aches, pains and let’s not get into my constant bloody white sheets. I love what he loves and most importantly, I want him to be happy ❤#bmx #tjlavin #bmxwife #marriage #husbandandwife #couple #supporteachother #love #rideordie #hestheone

“I almost drowned out there. There’s a nasty undertow, and I went out into the ocean like nothing, like I was good, and I was like, no problem. I’m just going to go out here and go swimming,” Lavin said on Las Vegas radio show Flip The Strip.

“Before I knew it I was like 100 yards off the coast,” Lavin recalled.

Luckily, his friend was also in the water. “He was surfing and he grabbed his surfboard and rushed out there and got me,” Lavin explained on the radio show.

Blake Shelton Is Gwen Stefani’s No. 1 Fan at Her Vegas Show: Details!

Her No. 1 fan! Gwen Stefani kicked off her Just a Girl residency at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on Wednesday, June 27, with a very special guest in the audience: her boyfriend, Blake Shelton.

The couple — who began dating in November 2015, as Us Weekly exclusively revealed — cozied up together on the red carpet before Stefani, 48, took the stage. Throughout the entire concert, Shelton, 42, held his girlfriend’s youngest son, Apollo, 4, on his lap. (She also shares sons Kingston, 12, and Zuma, 9, with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.)

“It was the sweetest thing ever,” an onlooker tells Us. “[Blake] looked like a total father figure to him. He is so smitten with Apollo, and Apollo seemed just obsessed with him. They all seem very much like a family. … [Apollo] was taking some of his snacks and feeding Blake. It was adorable.”

Stefani made several references to her relationship with the country singer during her show. While performing No Doubt’s “A Simple Kind of Life,” she strutted down the catwalk and pointed directly at her beau during the lyric, “You seem like you’d be a good dad.” Later in the evening, she told the audience, “You don’t know what it’s like to be able to wear a cowgirl costume right in front of Blake Shelton. It’s my dream come true. Thanks for sharing this with me.”

The pop star ran through 25 songs on Wednesday night. She opened her show with her 2004 single “Holdback Girl” before rocking out to No Doubt classics such as “Hella Good” and “Don’t Speak.” She also performed many of her biggest solo hits, including “What You Waiting For?” and “The Sweet Escape.”

“This is a crazy night because it’s the first night and one I will remember for the rest of my life,” she told the crowd. “You guys have a huge responsibility. … You are the first motherf–kers to go out and get a ticket.”

During one video interlude, Stefani referenced the aftermath of her 2016 divorce from Rossdale, 52. She admitted that she had been “unlucky in love” and once “felt like I was losing everything.” She added, “I lost my ability to have any confidence. … And when I look back at all the times that my heart was broken, it was always music that healed me. I realized I had to find that inside of me and find my gift again and find my confidence and get it back, and I needed to express all the pain and anger and betrayal that I was feeling, and I had to remind myself that there is a life and a purpose.”

The three-time Grammy winner paused her show at one point to bring a lesbian couple on stage. “One woman had on an ‘I’m Her Gwen’ hat and the other had an ‘I’m Her Blake’ hat,” a second concertgoer tells Us. “It was a cute moment, and Gwen was obviously very excited.”

Just a Girl concludes its 25-date run on March 16, 2019.

45 Great Moments in Black Business – No. 27: Don Barden’s $149 Million Acquisition of Three Vegas Casinos

This year, BLACK ENTERPRISE celebrates the 4th anniversary of its roster of the nation’s largest black-owned businesses—The BE 100s. To commemorate the significance of this collective’s widespread impact on black business and economic development as well as American industry over four decades, we have presented 45 milestones moments. As part of this tribute, we continue our yearlong countdown.  

Today we reveal No. 27 in the web series “Great Moments in Black Business.” 

2002: With the acquisition of three Fitzgeralds casinos for $ 149 million, Don Barden becomes the first African American to wholly own a casino in the nation’s gambling capital.

Rising from meager beginnings to become a self-made multimillionaire African American entrepreneur, the late Don Barden was a trailblazer in America’s gaming industry.

First-Ever Black Vegas Casino Operator

 

Barden made history when one of his companies acquired three Fitzgeralds casinos for $ 149 million, making him the first black to own casino operations in Las Vegas. The transaction placed his gaming enterprise in the industry’s largest U.S. market and at the same time, broke barriers within the sector.

Barden added to his empire—he had already owned casinos in Gary, Indiana; Tunica, Mississippi; and Black Hawk, Colorado—by purchasing the Fitzgeralds properties from bankruptcy court. In fact, Barden used $ 14 million of his own money and raised $ 150 million from 40 institutional investors to seal the deal and upgrade operations.

 

The daring entrepreneur’s big gamble paid off.  It bumped revenues of Barden Cos. Inc., placing it among the top 25 of BE Industrial/Service Companies in the early 2000s. Observers hailed Barden’s move as a major victory in bringing much-needed diversity to the industry. “It has the same ramification [for the Las Vegas gaming industry] that Jackie Robinson had to baseball,” Gene Collins, president of the Las Vegas chapter of the NAACP told the Las Vegas Sun at the time.” It opens all sorts of opportunities for African Americans because someone has to be first.”

First African American to Build an Urban-Based Cable TV Company

 

Making history was nothing new for Barden. In addition to being the first African American to own a casino corporation outright, he beat the odds by controlling multimillion-dollar companies in other industries that locked out blacks from ownership participation. As such, he would become the first black businessman to build a cable TV system for urban markets as well as a major player in commercial estate development over the course of his 40-year career.

He shared his deal-making philosophy in the BLACK ENTERPRISE book, Lessons From The Top: “I have learned to look for businesses that make money while I sleep. I like to acquire any business that doesn’t require an exorbitant amount of time and capital to turn it around. Yet, I want to be able to expand the core businesses. I have been able to do that with real estate, cable, and gaming. If you find viable businesses with solid management, you are not drained by the day-to-day operations. You can scope out other opportunities.”

The ninth of 13 children raised in Inkster, Michigan, he attended Central State University in Ohio with the goal of pursuing a legal career. But he ultimately turned to entrepreneurship. His first venture was a record store that he opened in Lorain, Ohio, at the age of 21 with $ 500 in savings. From there, he launched several businesses, including a real estate development firm, a nightclub, and a weekly newspaper, The Lorain County Times, in Lorain. He was also Lorain’s first elected black city council member.

 

(Barden featured in Black Enterprise magazine, May 1998)

 

By 1981, Barden bought an interest in a cable television station in Lorain and formed Barden Communications Inc. He expanded his cable system to include communities in his hometown of Inkster and the Detroit metro area, growing gross revenues from $ 600,000 to $ 91.2 million in a decade. By 1992, BCI earned the No. 5 position on the BE INDUSTRIAL/SERVICE 100 and BE 100s Company of the Year honors—for the first time. By 1994, he sold the company to Comcast Cable in 1994 for more than $ 100 million.

Two years later, he ventured into the casino gaming industry when he acquired and operated the Majestic Star Casino, a riverboat casino in Gary, Indiana. After an unsuccessful bid to buy a casino in Detroit, he acquired the Fitzgeralds properties. In 2003, BLACK ENTERPRISE named Barden Cos. as Company of the Year—the only entrepreneur to receive such recognition in two different industries within a 10-year span.

But not all of Barden’s ventures were proven winners. In 2009, the Majestic Star Casino was forced to file for bankruptcy protection.

Such setbacks, however, did not keep BLACK ENTERPRISE from heralding his myriad accomplishments. As part of its 40th-anniversary celebration in 2010—a year before Barden’s untimely death due to complications from lung cancer—it ranked him No. 21 on the roster of “Titans: The 40 Most Powerful African Americans in Business.” That same year, he also received the A.G. Gaston Lifetime Achievement Award, BE‘s top honor for business excellence. Barden left a legacy for being one of the most honored and respected black business leaders of his generation, and mentor to several generations of black professionals and entrepreneurs.

At toddler time in Las Vegas, a tiny ray of hope

by

Maggie Downs

posted in Parenting

On Thursday I attended a toddler time at a nature preserve, the kind of thing I’ve gone to a hundred times before – a brief storytime followed by an easy craft and a room full of spirited, exuberant kids.

But this time was different.

This time I was a visitor to Las Vegas in the wake of a mass shooting that took place just 9 miles away.

A shot of several casinos and a line of traffic along the Las Vegas Strip

 

So as families entered the room to the Stevie Wonder song, “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing,” the lyrics felt steeped with meaning. As the docent read, “The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything,” I couldn’t help but wonder if the title was supposed to transmit a message to the adults in the room. And as parents gave each other hugs that lingered a little too long, I understood.

It’s only by happenstance that I am in Vegas right now, a road trip that was planned a long time ago.

A toddler boy stands against one of the colorful boulders at Seven Magic Mountains, located outside Las Vegas

Of course I never imagined that I would be steering my son around memorials on The Strip or he would see me cry as a message about trauma counselors flashed across the glitzy, sparkly sign at the Mirage. But here I am anyway.

 

This was the first time many of these parents had seen each other in a week, and the relief was palpable — all these residents of a parched landscape, living in a preposterous desert city that defies the odds to even exist. Though it is a dismal, daunting time, they were here in this room for each other. I didn’t purposely eavesdrop on their conversations; they were just happening around me, and it was touching, intimate, and revealing.

“We just got back from Wisconsin last night,” one mom said.

“Oh good, you weren’t there,” said her friend. “I wondered.”

Another mom seemed to collapse into her friend. She said a mutual friend had been hurt and was critical. The two clung together there, in a room wild with markers and glue, shouts and song, like the calm eye in a fierce storm.

They didn’t clarify what they were talking about. They didn’t have to.

The classic Fabulous Las Vegas sign lit up at night

 

This community of parents was doing what we all do for our children.

They cloaked the terror and tragedy of the world by speaking around the subject.

Nobody at toddler time mentioned a shooter or guns or terrorism, but it was crystal clear what they were talking about. It was almost as if there was an unspoken code.

These parents also dared to find some semblance of normalcy during a time fraught with fear, anger, and uncertainty. They made their way out into the world, even while the town was still reeling from tragedy, because that’s how a community shows strength and courage.

And here’s the part that fills me with optimism:

They’ll do it next week too. The parents will show up again and again, week after week, bringing children together, in the hope that the future will somehow be better.

How do you navigate current events and tragedies with your children?

News Wrap: Las Vegas attacker reportedly researched other cities

JUDY WOODRUFF: There’s word that the gunman who mowed down concert-goers in Las Vegas may have considered other targets in other cities.

Stephen Paddock killed 58 people Sunday night, before taking his own life. Now it’s widely reported that he had booked a hotel room in Chicago overlooking the Lollapalooza music festival two months ago. Other reports say he also researched hotels near Fenway Park in Boston.

The National Rifle Association announced today it supports regulating so-called bump stocks. Investigators say the Las Vegas gunman apparently used the devices to convert semiautomatic rifles to even more lethal automatic fire. In a statement, the NRA called for a federal review.

At the White House, spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said President Trump would welcome that effort.

SARAH SANDERS, White House Press Secretary: We would like to see a clear understanding of the facts. And we’d like to see input from the victims’ families, from law enforcement, from policy-makers. And we’re expecting hearings and other important fact-finding efforts on that, and we want to be part of that discussion, and we’re certainly open to that moving forward.

JUDY WOODRUFF: House Speaker Paul Ryan joined a growing number of Republican leaders today, saying Congress needs to look into the issue.

A new tropical storm has formed off Nicaragua, and it could strike the U.S. Gulf Coast this weekend as a hurricane. Officials say the storm, dubbed Nate, is already blamed for 22 deaths in Central America. Forecasts show that it’s on track to cross Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula tomorrow night and reach the U.S. mainland by Sunday morning. Officials in Louisiana today began to order coastal evacuations.

In Puerto Rico, officials now say that power has been restored to about 9 percent of the island’s customers. This is two weeks after Hurricane Maria wrecked the island. Governor Ricardo Rossello said that he hopes to see service restored to 25 percent of customers within a month.

The U.S. House of Representatives today approved a Republican budget plan worth $ 4.1 trillion. It revives a plan to turn Medicare into a voucher-like program and to cut Medicaid by about $ 1 trillion over 10 years. The vote split largely down party lines, with Republicans and Democrats arguing over whether the plan does more harm than good.

REP. PAUL RYAN, R-Wis., Speaker of the House: This is a budget that reflects our first principles, freedom, free enterprise, a government accountable to the people it serves. It’s a budget that will help grow our economy and it’s a budget that will help rein in our debt. It strengthens our national defense. It supports our men and women in uniform.

REP. NANCY PELOSI, D-Calif., Minority Leader: This is a budget, their budget, that steals from the middle class, steals hundreds of billions of dollars from critical job-creating, wage-increasing investments in infrastructure, job training, and clean energy. It harms veterans. It cuts education. It abandons rural America.

JUDY WOODRUFF: The budget is intended to set the stage for the consideration of tax reform legislation. The Senate is expected to vote on a similar plan later this month.

This was deadline day for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children. They scrambled to renew their work permits and protection from being deported for another two years. Those benefits were granted under President Obama’s DACA program, which President Trump is ending.

California is now a so-called sanctuary state for undocumented immigrants. Governor Jerry Brown signed this into law today. It bars police from helping federal immigration officials or from asking about a person’s immigration status. The new law takes effect January 1.

In Iraq, government troops today recaptured one of the last towns held by Islamic State militants. ISIS fighters seized Hawija three years ago, as they rampaged across Northern Iraq. Today, Iraqi soldiers could be seen riding through the streets celebrating their victory. They’d been battling to liberate Hawija since late last month.

This year’s Nobel Prize in literature goes to British novelist Kazuo Ishiguro. The Japanese-born writer is known for works depicting British and Japanese life, including “The Remains of the Day” and “Never Let Me Go.”

In London today, he said he tries to speak to how nations remember their past and how they sometimes try to bury it.

KAZUO ISHIGURO, Winner, Nobel Prize for Literature: I hope that these kinds of themes will actually be in some small way helpful to the climate we have at the moment, because I think we have entered a very uncertain time in the world at the moment.

JUDY WOODRUFF: Ishiguro said he was caught off-guard when he heard he had won the Nobel before he was officially notified. He said he thought at first that it was fake news.

Republican Congressman Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania announced today that he’s resigning. The anti-abortion lawmaker admitted last month that he’d had an affair. This week came reports of text messages from Murphy’s phone urging his mistress to have an abortion, when he thought that she was pregnant.

All that infotainment tech in new cars and trucks, it turns out, is distracting drivers for dangerous periods of time. The AAA’s Foundation for Traffic Safety warned today that the systems are getting more complex, and taking more time to use. In the worst cases, they say, drivers were distracted an average of 40 seconds when programming GPS navigation systems or text messaging.

On Wall Street today, the Dow Jones industrial average gained more than 113 points to close at 22775. The Nasdaq rose 50, and the S&P 500 added 14.

Jason Aldean Ran from Stage When Las Vegas Gunman Opened Fire: ‘Tonight Has Been Beyond Horrific’

Video footage shows the harrowing moments country singer Jason Aldean ran from the stage during his Las Vegas show on Sunday after a gunman opened fire, killing 20 people and injuring at least 100.

A clip uploaded to Twitter by an attendant showed the 40-year-old singer performing as gunfire broke out at the country music festival. Soon, the music comes to an abrupt halt and Aldean is seen fleeing the stage.

“Tonight has been beyond horrific. I still dont know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that Me and my Crew are safe,” Aldean wrote in an Instagram post in the wake of the incident.

“My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight. It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night. #heartbroken#stopthehate.”

The shooting began just as Aldean kicked off his show on the final day of the three-day Route 91 Harvest Festival, the Washington Post reports.

Witnesses reported that a gunman opened fire – reportedly with a fully automatic weapon – from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino. Police later engaged the shooter and killed him, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said, according to NBC News.

Shortly after the shooting, Aldean’s wife, Brittany, reassured fans in an Instagram post, writing, “We are safe … our angels were definitely watching over us tonight. No words for what happened … Just horrific. Praying for everyone.”

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department announced Sunday night that an active shooter has been reported near the casino and advised people to avoid the area.

Authorities shut down the south end of the strip as well as freeway traffic on the I-15 from Tropicana to Russell Road. Some flights destined for McCarran Airport were also diverted due to the reported shooting, according to the airport.

A video posted by a Twitter user showed a crowd of people fleeing from a nearby music festival after the shots were reported. Police said they believe the shooting to be “a solo act” done by “a lone wolf attacker,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

NFL Player Michael Bennett Says He Was Assaulted by Las Vegas Police

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett says he was restrained and had a gun pointed at him by officers of the Las Vegas Police Department last month for no reason other than being black and being at the “wrong place at the wrong time.”

Bennett posted a message on social media describing the incident.

Bennett says he was in Las Vegas on Aug. 26 on his day off to attend the Floyd Mayweather–Conor McGregor fight. After the fight, Bennett says he headed back to his hotel when he heard what he thought were gunshots.

He says he ran away from the area seeking safety when he was confronted by a Las Vegas police officer who ordered him to the ground.

“All I could think of was ‘I’m going to die for no other reason than being black and my skin color is somehow a threat.’

“Terrified and confused by what was taking place, a second officer came over and forcefully jammed his knee into my back making it difficult for me to breathe,” Bennett wrote.

Bennett says his fingers went numb because the handcuffs were so tight. He repeatedly asks the officers what he did to be handcuffed.

Later, Bennett says he was placed into the back of a police car and only released when officers verified his name and that he was professional football player.

“The system failed me,” Bennett wrote. “I can only imagine what Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and Charleena Lyles felt.”

Bennett says he has hired an attorney to investigate the incident and that he plans to explore his legal options, including a potential civil suit for violation of his civil rights.

Bennett has said he plans to protest all season during the playing of the national anthem to shed a light on racial injustice in the United States.
