Savannah or New Orleans for a mini-break?

Hi all, my husband and I are planning a 5 day mini break and want to go somewhere warm that is new to us. We are in the DC area, so hoping to stay within a 3 to 4 hour flight; we've already been to Puerto Rico a few times, as well as Miami and Charleston. Savannah and New Orleans are both on our list, but neither of us really have much of a pull to either place -- they are on the list because so many people have told us to visit once in our lives. Any advice, DL peeps? Or alternative suggestions? We're going the last week of March. We're both in our 50s -- active tourists, but not into being slutty or anything like that. TIA

F. Murray Abraham

He was raised in El Paso by a Syrian mechanic, who scrimped and saved to help his son pay tuition at The University of Texas.

After a rocky start, he finally established himself as a character actor, appearing in Serpico, All the Presidents Men, Marco Pollo, and Scarface. Then his life changed forever when Milos Forman cast him in the film Amadeus. There, he played a envious and conniving Salieri, which received him an Oscar and international acclaim. The next year he appeared in The Name of the Rose with Sean Connery. Then his career sank.

Then, he received a career resurgence; Last Action Hero, Mighty Aphrodite, and the terribly fun. 13 Ghosts. Then his career sank again. Then another resurgence with Inside Llewyn Davis, Homeland, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Isle of Dogs, Mythic Quest, and White Lotus.

He is F. Murray Abraham.

US airman sets himself on fire outside Israeli Embassy in Washington

In a video of the incident, obtained and reviewed by CNN, the man identifies himself as Aaron Bushnell and says, “I will no longer be complicit in genocide” before going on to say that what he’s about to do is minimal compared with the suffering of Palestinians.

He then sets the recording device on the ground before pouring an unknown liquid over himself and igniting it while yelling “Free Palestine” repeatedly. He eventually collapses as police officers rush to douse the flames with fire extinguishers.

Sorry that he did this to himself. But that's a hell of a lot of courage to bring the Israeli crime of genocide against the Palestinians to the forefront.

By request, a "To Tell the Truth" thread`

[quote]Do we need a separate TTTT thread or can we piggyback here? I'd like to discuss religious Bud Collyer, Tom Poston and his 17 yr old girlfriend, creepy Orson Bean, gracious Southern belle Kitty and Peggy Cass' weight fluctuations.

I also loved TTTT, from the 1950s version ("you'll get a carton of Salem cigarettes on your way out") through the groovy Pucci-inspired set and swingin' theme song of the 1960s.

Later iterations included a 1980s version variously hosted by Alex Trebek, Joe Garagiola, and Lynn Swann, as well as a dimly remembered 2000s remake with an all-gay panel.

The current version with Anthony Anderson is not worth mentioning or watching.

Did anyone see this? It was on NBC and was along the lines of Night Gallery. It was an anthology narrated by Sebastian Cabot as the mysterious owner of a hotel (for which they used as the exterior the Del Coronado in San Diego). It had very nigh quality direction and writing enacting--less violent and shocking than Night Gallery, but eerie and well done.

How in your right mind could you willingly inflict that pain on another parent? You are an old man who surely knows that all the killing in the world will never bring peace to ANYONE. ANYONE.

Your life is coming to its end s and you could leave this earth having done something courageous. At the very least having stopped the bloodshed that you have enabled.

Look deep into your heart.

Is this who you are?

What does your God tell you?

Since you are a churchgoer I am sure the first thing you must live by is "Do Unto Others..."

I send this message with hope that you summon the wisdom of your eighty something years and act from a place of wisdom and love.

Leave that legacy for Beau, yourself and all of humanity.

Man is mocked by his neighbour for having cheap wallpaper

Having grown up as an orphan in Croatia after his parents were hit by trains, Zoran had always dreamed of owning his own home. He had worked hard for years as a cargo pilot, saving every penny he could until he finally had enough to buy a modest two-bedroom house in the suburbs of Zagreb. He could have been much richer, but had spent the majority of his life earnings and savings on partying, gambling, bad investments, and child support for a kid he sired after one night stand fifteen years ago. He was so proud of his achievement, to be a home owner, even if it was just a terraced house in a bleak part of town. He couldn't wait to move in and decorate his new home.

He decided to start with the living room, where he wanted to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. He went to the local hardware store and browsed through the wallpaper section, looking for something that would suit his taste. He saw a roll of wallpaper that caught his eye: it had a pattern of blue and white flowers, with a hint of gold glitter. It looked elegant and classy, and it was on sale for a very low price. Zoran thought it was a bargain, and he bought enough rolls to cover his entire living room wall.

He spent the next weekend putting up the wallpaper, following the instructions carefully. He was very pleased with the result: the wallpaper brightened up the room, and it matched well with his furniture and curtains. He felt like he had made his house a home.

He was eager to show off his new living room to his neighbours, who he had met briefly when he moved in. They seemed friendly and welcoming, and he hoped to make some new friends. He invited them over for a housewarming party, and prepared some snacks and drinks.

The first to arrive was Burnice, a middle-aged woman who lived across the street. She was known as the neighbourhood gossip, always snooping around and spreading rumours. She had a loud and annoying voice, and a fake smile that never reached her eyes. She walked into Zoran's living room and gasped.

"Oh my, Zoran, what have you done?" she exclaimed, looking at the wallpaper with a mixture of horror and amusement.

"What do you mean?" Zoran asked, confused.

"This wallpaper, Zoran, this wallpaper!" Burnice said, pointing at the wall. "Don't you know what this is?"

Zoran felt a pang of anxiety. "What do you mean? It's just wallpaper. I liked the design, and it was on sale."

Burnice laughed mockingly. "On sale? Of course it was on sale, Zoran. This is the cheapest and tackiest wallpaper in the whole store. It's made of recycled paper and plastic, and it peels off easily. And the glitter? It's not gold, Zoran, it's fool's gold. It's pyrite, a worthless mineral that looks shiny but has no value. This wallpaper is a joke, Zoran, a joke!"

Zoran felt his face turn red. He couldn't believe what he was hearing. He had spent hours putting up the wallpaper, and he thought it looked beautiful. How could it be so cheap and worthless?

Corbin fischer's Connor alleged testimony after he was kicked out

¨I catfished him before, posing as someone that I knew Chaz admires and wanted to "work" with, and in private he doesn't identify as 100% straight. He doesn't consider himself fully bisexual either but he did admit he isn't completely straight. He said he was always told to say by the owner of CF whenever interviewed etc that he was completely straight, no matter what. He said that he DID identify as "straight" when he first started out at CF and didn't think he would ever do gay porn but the grooming process was gradual and began off-camera. They used other straight-leaning attractive, athletic guys at CF to get him comfortable with gay sex. After a while of doing gay porn he said he did realize that he could enjoy sex with guys and get turned on by them, but that he would never date a guy because he has no interest in that aspect of it. He has had sex with guys outside of porn and not for pay. He said most of the guys who start off as "straight" at CF eventually realize they are bisexual to some degree but they were all told in no uncertain terms to identify as straight publicly. He said that might have changed since he left. He was taught how to also groom other guys into having gay sex and make them feel comfortable doing it and to not feel all "gay" about it. The only model Chaz knew who always insisted even behind the scenes that he was completely straight but Chaz had a hard time believing it was Aiden (Kyle Buter). He said that Aiden was so adamant about it that it made it difficult for other guys to get along with Aiden sometimes and that's why Aiden never transitioned to production work like many of the other favorites there. He also said that the most bisexual/kinky one he worked with was Josh, and that Josh loved the taste of cum and identified as bisexual before he was even hired at CF which Chaz thought was cool.¨

Will this end in tears?

A younger friend of mine fell in love with a sociopath.

6 months ago a dashing 23 year small business owner met a charming 36 yr old former marine private car dealer. Things were bliss until my 23 yr old friend discovered the love of his was a violent alcoholic. The first sign Thanksgiving night where my friend, who we’ll call Joey, and the boyfriend, D, visited Joey’s family in the Carolinas. A heated card game got too competitive and D put Joey’s 2nd cousin in a chokehold. Things escalated from there. Occasional beatings and verbal abuse soon followed. One time a beating occurred after Joey revealed he wasn’t a fan of the meatloaf served at party they just attended. But the meatloaf was made by D’s mom. I suspect he might be a bipolar schizoid. My friend says the sex is too good to leave, but more importantly he sees D’s heart.

The final straw for me was when after a political debate D informed Joey that on Election Day Joey must vote for Biden and then he will take a polygraph test afterwards to confirm the vote. If he fails there will be punishment. I loathe Trump but that is a bit extreme. You see my friend comes from a prominent conservative family. To complicate matters I slept with D one night in the early stages of their relationship. And yes I occasionally fuck Joey. Yes we’re all whores.

Prince William releases impassioned statement about Gaza

Prince William's full statement reads:

"I remain deeply concerned about the terrible human cost of the conflict in the Middle East since the Hamas terrorist attack on October 7. Too many have been killed.

"I, like so many others, want to see an end to the fighting as soon as possible. There is a desperate need for increased humanitarian support to Gaza. It's critical that aid gets in and the hostages are released.

"Sometimes it is only when faced with the sheer scale of human suffering that the importance of permanent peace is brought home.

"Even in the darkest hour, we must not succumb to the counsel of despair. I continue to cling to the hope that a brighter future can be found and I refuse to give up on that."

How do you feel about guns and how do you defend yourself?

I’m accident prone and am not the type of person who should own a gun. I personally dislike guns and I dislike gun culture. For defense, I know some Taekwondo. I have brass knuckles, a bear spray gun, a baseball bat and a dog. I am a petite woman who lives alone in a densely populated suburb in the Midwest.

However, I’m not trying to ban all guns for everyone else.

Have your goddamned guns but for the love of Christ, let’s have some sensible gun laws passed. Gun culture is blind to nuance so I’m not holding my breath on common-sense gun legislation. Sick of hearing about mass shootings, and every time we have one, the gun nuts double down..

I’m in the process of losing two good friends right now. It’s painful and I’m ready for this stage to be over. It basically boils down to the fact that I liked them both more than they liked me. It was becoming evident that they wanted a little space from me, so I’m honoring that and detaching. I know one day it won’t be this painful, and I hold on to that.

Sammy Davis, Jr.

A 20th century sensation whom we rarely discuss. He was astonishingly talented, and could genuinely sing, dance (extraordinarily well), and act. He grew up as part of a black dance trio with his father and godfather. He went into the US Army where he said he got into a fistfight almost every other day because of white soldiers from the South picking on him, and he winded up with a permanently flattened nose. He later lost his eye in a car accident, an event which led to his conversion to Judaism. His marriage to the beautiful white Swedish actress May Britt in 1960 was considered scandalous by the racist standards of the time.

Audiences loved his high energy and his talent, and though critics panned his big Broadway show "Mr. Wonderful" in the mid 1950s it was a huge hit. Comedians loved to mock his bizarre appearance and tendency to indulge in personal self-pity on stage, and he inspired not just one but two of the most memorable parody characters on SCTV, Joe Flaherty's Sammy Maudlin and Martin Short's Jackie Rogers, Jr.

Is NextDoor Full of Unhinged People Where You Live?

I moved to an affluent suburb that is right outside a major metropolitan area in 2021. I joined NextDoor, mainly looking for recommendations for local services, like handymen and whatnot. At the time, about 90% of the posts were some variation of, "OMG, we are so lucky to live here!" It is a place of great natural beauty, coastal features, a mountain, hiking trails, you name it.

In the last year the discourse has devolved into people going off on each other. There are numerous complaints about entitled teens on e-bikes terrorizing seniors, the same teens stealing from the local Safeway and ruining the trails. Then there are endless threads about irresponsible dog walkers losing control of their dogs who then go on to attack small dogs.

‘Game Over’: MSNBC Legal Analyst Declares Fani Willis Case Against Trump DEAD

Legal analyst Caroline Polisi flatly declared on MSNBC that new testimony contradicting Fani Willis’ claims about her relationship with a colleague was “game over for her” in the election fraud trial against former President Donald Trump.

Polisi, who frequently appears on both MSNBC and CNN, did not hold back on how bad a day this is for the Fulton County DA.

“Don’t let the legalese fool you,” she opened. “This is epic. This is monumental. If things are going in the direction we think, Fani Willis lied to the court, it’s game over for her. She will be disqualified. If they had a relationship prior to when they represented truth to the court, it’s a huge deal. I can’t overstate.”

Polisi added further context in a statement to Mediaite, saying, “Willis will be disqualified, which means her entire office is disqualified, which means the case will have to be re-assigned and languish with the PAC of Georgia, effectively killing the case. Her credibility is completely shot.”

It remains unclear how this will affect the election fraud case Willis brought against the former president. It could mean, at the least, that Willis’s time leading the case is over, given the apparent revelation that she lied under oath about the timing of her affair with her deputy Nathan Wade.

------------------------ Also

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis was admonished by Judge Scott McAfee for not answering questions directly on the witness stand Thursday, who even threatened to strike her testimony from the record if she continued to be evasive.

The rebuke came during a back-and-forth about whether Nathan Wade — the man Willis was dating and hired to help conduct the prosecution of Donald Trump and his co-conspirators in a 2020 election case — visited her where she was living.

Weird things you found in your dead relative’s house

A few years ago, a friend’s uncle died. I helped him go through his uncle’s house (uncle had no other family and lived alone) to get it ready for the estate sale.

I remember the uncle had a really great set of vintage silverware and a silver tea service that I would’ve loved to have had. Some great old period furniture, too.

The weird stuff was in the attic. Actually, it was just this one old trunk in the corner that looked like it hadn’t been touched in decades. Inside were a couple of old guns and a machete (my friend was shocked because he’d never known his uncle to even like guns) and something that looked like a Halloween costume. The creepiest part was an old wallet and some car keys. There was a driver’s license still in the wallet (it was from the ‘60s, so definitely old) that I assumed was the uncle’s (I never met the guy) but my friend was a little spooked and said that wasn’t his uncle. He didn’t know who it was. My friend suddenly said to put it all back in the trunk and we carried it outside to go to the junk people who were coming the next day.

I wondered later if the uncle had a male lover and that’s who the license belonged to. I brought it up a few times, but my friend said no. The last time I mentioned it, he snapped at me to stop bringing it up. He was kinda mean about it, actually, and a bit scary. Maybe I touched a nerve?

Anyway. What are some weird things you’ve found when going through a dead relative’s things? Evidence of a secret homosexual affair?

Which youtubers are closeted gays?

Sometimes I think MrBeast is gay. He grew up in the bible belt and used the word fag often as a teen in his older youtube videos. I don't find that offensive but in some cases when men use these homophobic slurs, they do so in order to hide something... He also has a nasal voice, his relationship seems PR and he once showed a picture of himself after his weight loss journey and there you can observe that he has wide child bearing hips (according to scientific research, it means gay). Sometimes I think his friend and co-worker came out as trans recently only because that when you type in google "Mr beast gay" only his friend Chris(tina) appears in the search results (this actually happens despite the fact that trans has not much to do with being gay).

2. Anthony Padilla from smosh. I always thought he was gay but he said he was straight but the way he dresses and his hair style.......... It reminds me of the Scream 4 chad actor who came out as pansexual some time ago(which means bi btw). Anthony also had a nose job, yet his original nose was normal. Another sign of gayness?

3. There is a gaming channel called Hard4Games and the guy who owns it is called Tony. He is married with a child but he has gay face, gay voice and has a close gay friend. There is no evidence besides that. What do you think? (I linked a video of him)

4. Mark Dice. After I read the tumblr article "the similarities between closeted right-wingers and Chris Evans", I did even more research regarding rapepublicans. We already know that Steven Crowder is a closet case but sometimes I think Mark Dice is too. He also has a high pitched voice, he is rumored to be controlled opposition (which means he is an illuminati member allegedly and these people are basically sodom and gomorrah) and he doesn't seem to have a wife and kids despite spreading tradcon propaganda. I thought the same about Paul Joseph Watson too but he recently announced a child (Which seems as random as when Steven Crowder announced that he is expecting.... Because they both just showed the fetus ultrasound on their youtube channels but they never really seemed loving/romantic with their girlfriends... strange). It all gives Tim Scott vibes.

5. Is Hasan Piker bi? He dresses gay and has a nasal gay voice. He had a PR relationship with a porn star and one time there was an Asian lady that looked like a prostitute next to him while he was streaming on twitch. Hasan went to the toilet and this escort-like girl was alone with his audience in front of his PC and said something along the lines of "I can't wait to fuck him. To have his muscular dick inside me"... or something like that. And when Hasan came back he was like "why do you say something so perverted to my audience?". This incident was not just cringe but also seemed staged to me. He also once pretended to be in a relationship with another streamer called pokimane but I don't think she would date a brute like him. Also, he kinda pretends to be a chad and admittedly, many find him hot but so far I haven't seen one oopsie child and he lives in LA after all were everyone fucks! He is over 30 years old and is not wedded (despite saying he is pro islam, his family is muslim and he is from a traditional Turkish background) and instead of a wife/girlfriend, he has a dog (like Henry Cavill and other Hollywood closet cases) and he has a best friend called Austin who is a gay top and I wouldn't be surprised if they both happen to fuck twinks in threesomes... It's Just.. I live in a country with many Turkish people and these Turkish men are very often bi. Oh and before I forget. Hasan once bragged about using a brothel in Germany but aren't straight men usually ashamed of using such facilities and only men who think they have to prove something have to brag about stuff like that?

What do you think of my speculations and do you know other youtubers you suspect to be closeted? And b4 you come at me, sayingt that this is all wishful thinking on my part: I only find MrBeast cute.

Trump says Black voters like him more because of his indictments and mug shot

The GOP candidate tells a group of Black conservatives: ‘I’m being indicted for you, the Black population’

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Former President Trump sought to appeal to Black voters on Friday night in South Carolina by repeatedly citing the 91 felony charges he faces and comparing them to unfair treatment from the criminal justice system toward minorities in America.

“A lot of people said that’s why the Black people liked me, because they had been hurt so badly and discriminated against. And they actually viewed me as I’m being discriminated against … Maybe there’s something to it,” he said, right after talking about the charges.

He also cited his mug shot in Georgia — taken last summer after he was charged for trying to overturn the state’s election results — as a reason that Black voters would gravitate toward him in November. Trump said he now saw Black Americans wearing mug shots on their T-shirts.

“When I did the mug shot in Atlanta, that mug shot is number one,” Trump said. He added that the Black population “embraced it more than anyone else.”

He also said: “I’m being indicted for you, the Black population.”

Siena Poll: Majority of New York Jews to vote for Trump in presidential election

A staggering 53% of Jewish voters in New York state plan on voting for former President Donald Trump in the November election, a new Siena College poll found.

The spike in New York Jewish voters backing Trump has come in the wake of the murderous Oct. 7 Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel, with antisemitic hate crimes and anti-Israel protests surging in New York City. President Biden, meanwhile, has lashed out at Israel in its war against Hamas while the Democratic Party has come under fire for tolerating far-left lawmakers in its ranks who sympathize with terrorists, according to Democratic political consultant Hank Sheinkopf.

“The 11th commandment for Jews is ‘Thou shall vote Democrat.’ Now there’s a 12th commandment: ‘Maybe you should be a Republican, darling,'” Sheinkopf quipped.

The latest polls demonstrate a shift in the New York Jewish vote that is a “clear trend, long in the making,” Sam Markstein, national political director for the Republican Jewish Coalition, wrote on X.

Markstein cited Lee Zeldin’s failed 2022 gubernatorial race, with the former Long Island Representative receiving 46% of the Jewish vote after campaigning on defending yeshivas amid heightened scrutiny and bashing the state’s criminal justice reform laws.

New York Jews suddenly swinging for Republicans isn’t enough for a Trump victory though, according to the poll, which was released this week and had a margin of error of 4.2%. It found Biden trouncing the former president in the state 48% to 36%.

“All of Us Strangers” streaming in Hulu

I watched it the first time in the theater and last night at home streaming. It is an amazing movie and I got so much more of the subtle details and foreboding references this time. The intimate, conversational scenes are so beautiful - the actors are terrific and I paid attention more to Andrew Scott and his unspoken expressions and conveyances - he deserved all awards. The movie has such a mood to it, it’s heavy and dark and sad but somehow quite beautiful as well. I was emotionally spent afterwards. Definitely one of my favorite films.

Biden's brain is aging. Trump's brain is dementing

Phonemic paraphasias" —the substitution of non-words for words that sound similar—are not normally seen until a patient enters the moderate to severe stages of Alzheimer’s.

Some examples of Trump’s non-words: Beneficiaries becomes “benefishes.” Renovations become “renoversh.” Pivotal became “pivobal." Obama became “obamna.” Missiles became “mishiz.” Christmas became “Crissus.” Bipartisan became “bipars.”

Mexico City is months away from running out of water

Alejandro Gomez has been without proper running water for more than three months. Sometimes it comes on for an hour or two, but only a small trickle, barely enough to fill a couple of buckets. Then nothing for many days.

Gomez, who lives in Mexico City’s Tlalpan district, doesn’t have a big storage tank so can’t get water truck deliveries — there’s simply nowhere to store it. Instead, he and his family eke out what they can buy and store.

When they wash themselves, they capture the runoff to flush the toilet. It’s hard, he told CNN. “We need water, it’s essential for everything.”

Water shortages are not uncommon in this neighborhood, but this time feels different, Gomez said. “Right now, we are getting this hot weather. It’s even worse, things are more complicated.”

Mexico City, a sprawling metropolis of nearly 22 million people and one of the world’s biggest cities, is facing a severe water crisis as a tangle of problems — including geography, chaotic urban development and leaky infrastructure — are compounded by the impacts of climate change.

Years of abnormally low rainfall, longer dry periods and high temperatures have added stress to a water system already straining to cope with increased demand. Authorities have been forced to introduce significant restrictions on the water pumped from reservoirs.

“Several neighborhoods have suffered from a lack of water for weeks, and there are still four months left for the rains to start,” said Christian Domínguez Sarmiento, an atmospheric scientist at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

Politicians are downplaying any sense of crisis, but some experts say the situation has now reached such critical levels that Mexico City could be barreling towards “day zero” in a matter of months — where the taps run dry for huge swaths of the city.

Densely populated Mexico City stretches out across a high-altitude lake bed, around 7,300 feet above sea level. It was built on clay-rich soil — into which it is now sinking — and is prone to earthquakes and highly vulnerable to climate change. It’s perhaps one of the last places anyone would choose to build a megacity today.

The Aztecs chose this spot to build their city of Tenochtitlan in 1325, when it was a series of lakes. They built on an island, expanding the city outwards, constructing networks of canals and bridges to work with the water.

But when the Spanish arrived in the early 16th century, they tore down much of the city, drained the lakebed, filled in canals and ripped out forests. They saw “water as an enemy to overcome for the city to thrive,” said Jose Alfredo Ramirez, an architect and co-director of Groundlab, a design and policy research organization.

Their decision paved the way for many of Mexico City’s modern problems. Wetlands and rivers have been replaced with concrete and asphalt. In the rainy season, it floods. In the dry season, it’s parched.

Around 60% of Mexico City’s water comes from its underground aquifer, but this has been so over-extracted that the city is sinking at a frightening rate — around 20 inches a year, according to recent research. And the aquifer is not being replenished anywhere near fast enough. The rainwater rolls off the city’s hard, impermeable surfaces, rather than sinking into the ground.

The rest of the city’s water is pumped vast distances uphill from sources outside the city, in an incredibly inefficient process, during which around 40% of the water is lost through leaks.

The Cutzamala water system, a network of reservoirs, pumping stations, canals and tunnels, supplies about 25% of the water used by the Valley of Mexico, which includes Mexico City. But severe drought has taken its toll. Currently, at around 39% of capacity, it’s been languishing at a historic low.

“It’s almost half of the amount of water that we should have,” said Fabiola Sosa-Rodríguez, head of economic growth and environment at the Metropolitan Autonomous University.

The Julie Andrews Hour 1973

It was a big deal when ABC signed Julie Andrews to do a variety show. Andrews said she thought it would be an easy gig. Sing a couple of songs, tell some jokes and go home. She found out that it was the hardest job she ever had. The result was amazingly good. There were many variety shows on the air but Andrews' was as good as any of them. Her musical segments were fantastic and the comedy bits were as good as the Carol Burnett Show. It only lasted a season as it was very expensive to produce and never found an audience.

DL fave Angela Lansbury guest stars and does a Mae West and Ethel Merman impression. She also sings a bit from Madwoman. The interview portion is sort of a nod to Carol Burnett's Q&A but I like it.

Hi, this afternoon I went on a great date.

We initially were going to meet for coffee, but then we changed it to coffee and a walk around the park. It was wonderful.

I am an American law student in my last year of school and he is a resident physician from India. We are about the same age. We discussed our childhoods, our careers, the partition of India, Nehru, the British Empire, and Beethoven. We even ended up talking about past relationships and what we learned about ourselves and what we do/don't want in a relationship.

We didn't want the date to end, so we went back to my apartment, which is close to the park. We then listened to music and talked some more. He had to go to a dinner, but we kissed afterwards.

I'm really looking forward to a another date. I don't have any friends to share this with so I'm posting here.

Rebecca Grossman found guilty

Nancy Iskander arrived at the graves of her two young sons a few hours after a jury on Friday convicted Rebecca Grossman of murdering them.

It was the end of a wrenching day. Three years after Grossman sped through a Westlake Village crosswalk in her Mercedes, hitting Iskander's sons as she watched in horror, she had finally found some level of closure.

"Someone was held accountable for your murder sons. Sleep tight. Rest in peace," she wrote on X along with a dusk photo of the marble headstone.

It took jurors a little over one day to convict Rebecca Grossman on all charges.

In doing so, the jurors appeared to embrace the prosecution's case that Grossman — the scion of a prominent medical family — was reckless and impaired by margaritas and Valium when she plowed through the residential intersection and hit the children as they walked in a marked crosswalk.

The jury convicted Grossman on two counts of murder, two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter and one count of hit-and-run resulting in death. Those were the maximum charges sought by prosecutors. The jury could have opted for lesser charges, such as vehicular manslaughter with ordinary negligence.

For Iskander, it was a moment of satisfaction and grief. She had been bearing witness for her boys, testifying in court and demanding authorities take the case seriously.

“My family has been waiting for this for three and a half years now. I've been waiting for the trust of the justice system. So today we're just giving glory to God, the God of Mark and Jacob has been with us through that time and helped us through, carried us," she said outside of court.

She said sitting through the high-profile trial "felt like I am attending the funeral of the boys again, day after day. That's how it felt, seeing the defendant and defense attorneys.”

But with the conviction she felt, it was all worth it.

"We were trusting the justice system," she said. "We have a justice system you can trust from our experience. It's not a justice system where people get away with things just under the color of their skin or their wealth or anything. You commit a crime, you will be held accountable."

On Sept. 29, 2020, when Iskander and her three sons approached the crosswalk, wearing inline skates, she began to cross Triunfo Canyon Road at Saddle Mountain Drive. Her youngest son, Zachary, was next to her on his scooter. Mark, on a skateboard, and Jacob, also wearing inline skates, followed a little over arms length behind.

Prosecutors accused Grossman of reaching 81 mph before lightly braking and hitting the brothers at 73 mph, based on the car’s data recorder and the distance Mark was found from the crosswalk.

Prosecutors allege Grossman, 60, had cocktails with her then-boyfriend Scott Erickson, a former Dodgers pitcher, and then raced with him — he in his black Mercedes sport utility vehicle and she in her white Mercedes SUV — along Triunfo Canyon Road until they reached a crosswalk.

Prosecutors also have alleged that Grossman traveled a third of a mile after slamming into the children before safety features in her car automatically shut it down.

Iskander's witness testimony was a highly charged moment in the trial, as she described watching Grossman's SUV plowing into her sons.

“I heard the loud noise, and I heard the driver of that car kept going,” Iskander told jurors. “I started screaming, ‘I can’t find them.’"

“Nobody came back to help,” Iskander said. “She did not come back to the scene.”

“She killed my kids,” Iskander said of Grossman. “They aren’t at school. They are not playing sports. They are at the cemetery.”

Tyler Perry Puts $800M Studio Expansion on Hold, in Favor of AI: "Jobs Will Be Lost"

Over the past four years, Tyler Perry had been planning an $800 million expansion of his studio in Atlanta, which would have added 12 soundstages to the 330-acre property. Now, however, those ambitions are on hold — thanks to the rapid developments he’s seeing in the realm of artificial intelligence, including OpenAI’s text-to-video model Sora, which debuted Feb. 15 and stunned observers with its cinematic video outputs.

“Being told that it can do all of these things is one thing, but actually seeing the capabilities, it was mind-blowing,” he said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, noting that his productions might not have to travel to locations or build sets with the assistance of the technology.

As a business owner, Perry sees the opportunity in these developments, but as an employer, fellow actor and filmmaker, he also wants to raise the alarm. In an interview between shoots Thursday, Perry explained his concerns about the technology’s impact on labor and why he wants the industry to come together to tackle AI: “There’s got to be some sort of regulations in order to protect us. If not, I just don’t see how we survive.”

[quote] After seeing Sora, what are your current feelings about how fast AI technology is moving and how it might affect entertainment in the near term?

I have been watching AI very closely and watching the advancements very closely. I was in the middle of, and have been planning for the last four years, about an $800 million expansion at the studio, which would’ve increased the backlot a tremendous size — we were adding 12 more soundstages. All of that is currently and indefinitely on hold because of Sora and what I’m seeing. I had gotten word over the last year or so that this was coming, but I had no idea until I saw recently the demonstrations of what it’s able to do. It’s shocking to me.

[quote] in particular was shocking to you about its capabilities?

I no longer would have to travel to locations. If I wanted to be in the snow in Colorado, it’s text. If I wanted to write a scene on the moon, it’s text, and this AI can generate it like nothing. If I wanted to have two people in the living room in the mountains, I don’t have to build a set in the mountains, I don’t have to put a set on my lot. I can sit in an office and do this with a computer, which is shocking to me.

It makes me worry so much about all of the people in the business. Because as I was looking at it, I immediately started thinking of everyone in the industry who would be affected by this, including actors and grip and electric and transportation and sound and editors, and looking at this, I’m thinking this will touch every corner of our industry.

[quote] Are you currently implementing AI in any of your productions and/or do you plan to do so in the near future?

I just used AI in two films that are going to be announced soon. That kept me out of makeup for hours. In post and on set, I was able to use this AI technology to avoid ever having to sit through hours of aging makeup.

[quote] How are you thinking about approaching the threat that AI poses to certain job categories at your studio and on your productions?

Everything right now is so up in the air. It’s so malleable. The technology’s moving so quickly. I feel like everybody in the industry is running a hundred miles an hour to try and catch up, to try and put in guardrails and to try and put in safety belts to keep livelihoods afloat. But me, just like every other studio in town, we’re all trying to figure it all out. I think we’re all trying to find the answers as we go, and it’s changing every day — and it’s not just our industry, but it’s every industry that AI will be affecting, from accountants to architects. If you look at it across the world, how it’s changing so quickly, I’m hoping that there’s a whole government approach to help everyone be able to sustain.

Violent, diarrhea-inducing stomach bug spreads in Northeast: ‘Incredibly contagious’

It’s a noro-easter.

The norovirus, a hypercontagious stomach bug, is sweeping across the Northeast, causing schools to shutter and citizens to suffer from violent diarrhea and other alarming symptoms.

“It is incredibly contagious,” Dr. Alfred Sacchetti from Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden, NJ, told ABC News.

“Just one particle of the norovirus that you ingest will get you sick.”

Recent data from the U.S. Centers For Disease Control and Prevention shows that the Northeast — particularly Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York — has the highest positivity rate for the hypervirulent strain.

A staggering 14% of swab tests in the region came back positive for the gastrointestinal ailment at the beginning of February.

That was up from around 12% two weeks earlier and just 4% in November before the epidemic.

“My 2-year-old was dealing with some stomach issues last week; his whole daycare seems to be having issues,” said Cherry Hill, NJ, resident Jacob Joyner, whose household was stricken with the illness.

And it’s not just those portions of the mid-Atlantic region that have been plagued.

The norovirus is also on the rise nationwide, with 12% of tests returning positive, marking a 3% increase from November.

Unfortunately, the stomach bug — of which there are multiple varieties — is reportedly the leading cause of acute gastroenteritis — or gastrointestinal issues — in the US, resulting in 19 to 21 million cases every year, according to the CDC.

Cases generally spike around February and March when people are most likely to be holed up indoors and, therefore, are in close proximity to one another.

Sufferers commonly contract the virus by ingesting contaminated foods and liquids, touching tainted surfaces and interacting with people infected with the virus.

According to the CDC, people who get it from other people generally do so by caring for them, sharing food or eating utensils with them, or eating food handled by them.

Once infected, the patient can experience a host of alarming symptoms ranging from violent diarrhea to stomach pain and vomiting, which can cause significant fluid loss and eventual dehydration.

These complications begin within 12 to 48 hours after exposure and can persist for three days.

A norovirus is particularly insidious because of how easily it spreads from person to person.

It only takes a few particles to make someone sick while the infectees often remain contagious for weeks after their symptoms improve.

Children are especially likely to facilitate the spread of the contagion, which has ravaged several schools and day-care centers in the Northeast.

Earlier this month, Irving Primary School in Middlesex County, NJ, shuttered due to an outbreak of the stomach bug.

It has since reopened after undergoing a deep cleaning, ABC News reported.

Fortunately, people can mitigate the spread of the norovirus by rinsing fruits and vegetables and thoroughly cooking shellfish and, of course, washing one’s hands, per the CDC.

Unfortunately, unlike the coronavirus and some other bugs, the norovirus has a resistance to hand sanitizer.

“Purel and the alcohol-based stuff doesn’t get through the envelope of the virus, and it’s still contagious on your hands,” declared Sacchetti.

“Soap and water is the only thing that’ll really protect you from this.”

Meanwhile, those infected with the virus are advised to stay home and avoid preparing food for others while sick and for two days afterward.

They should also drink plenty of liquids to replace fluid lost from vomiting and diarrhea.

That will help stave dehydration — the ailment’s most potentially serious symptom.

national parks vs. national monuments

Isn't a national park considered higher up the ladder than a national monument in terms of prestige, funding, protection, etc.? If so, the Grand Canyon was already a national park. Why the need to also define it as a national monument? Yes, I know the link is 6 months old.

Elizabeth Debicki... why isn't she more hyped?

I've been following Her career since she was hand picked by baz luhrman to play Jordan Baker in the Great Gatsby opposite DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire despite having zero previous film experience.

She's got the proportions of a fashion model, the face of a Botticelli painting and girlfriend can act. Her Princess Diana was far and away more compelling and technically on point than any of the other recent portrayals we've seen. She's been working steadily but never really gotten the kind of hype that other actresses of her generation have been handed, and I'm not sure why.

I'm a big fan and I hope to see her finally receive the kind of attention she deserves

Feud: Diana Ross and Florence Ballard

Eldergays and Music Queens, tell us more about the relationship between Florence Ballard and Diana Ross, both of The Supremes.

Evidently, although Florence was considered a stronger singer than Diana Ross, she was slowly pushed aside as the group was rebranded around Ross. She left the group soon after, endured poverty and failure, and died right as she was finally staging a comeback years later. Diana Ross attended her funeral in full "Mahogany" splendor, fake-sobbing and being carried up the aisle by two enormous bodyguards.

They left out this sad ending when they turned The Supremes' story into "Dreamgirls."

So does this prove Diana Ross' enduring reputation of cuntery? Was it her fault Florence was pushed out? Did she fuck her way to the top of the charts? How does her homosexual fanbase feel about it all?

Trump allies prepare to infuse ‘Christian nationalism’ in second administration

An influential think tank close to Donald Trump is developing plans to infuse Christian nationalist ideas in his administration should the former president return to power, according to documents obtained by POLITICO.

Spearheading the effort is Russell Vought, who served as Trump’s director of the Office of Management and Budget during his first term and has remained close to him. Vought, who is frequently cited as a potential chief of staff in a second Trump White House, is president of The Center for Renewing America think tank, a leading group in a conservative consortium preparing for a second Trump term.

Christian nationalists in America believe that the country was founded as a Christian nation and that Christian values should be prioritized throughout government and public life. As the country has become less religious and more diverse, Vought has embraced the idea that Christians are under assault and has spoken of policies he might pursue in response.

One document drafted by CRA staff and fellows includes a list of top priorities for CRA in a second Trump term. “Christian nationalism” is one of the bullet points. Others include invoking the Insurrection Act on Day One to quash protests and refusing to spend authorized congressional funds on unwanted projects, a practice banned by lawmakers in the Nixon era.

CRA’s work fits into a broader effort by conservative, MAGA-leaning organizations to influence a future Trump White House. Two people familiar with the plans, who were granted anonymity to discuss internal matters, said that Vought hopes his proximity and regular contact with the former president — he and Trump speak at least once a month, according to one of the people — will elevate Christian nationalism as a focal point in a second Trump term.

The documents obtained by POLITICO do not outline specific Christian nationalist policies. But Vought has promoted a restrictionist immigration agenda, saying a person’s background doesn’t define who can enter the U.S., but rather, citing Biblical teachings, whether that person “accept[ed] Israel's God, laws and understanding of history."

Vought has a close affiliation with Christian nationalist William Wolfe, a former Trump administration official who has advocated for overturning same-sex marriage, ending abortion and reducing access to contraceptives.

Vought, who declined to comment, is advising Project 2025, a governing agenda that would usher in one of the most conservative executive branches in modern American history. The effort is made up of a constellation of conservative groups run by Trump allies who’ve constructed a detailed plan to dismantle or overhaul key agencies in a second term. Among other principles, the project’s “Mandate for Leadership” states that “freedom is defined by God, not man.”

The Trump campaign has said repeatedly that it alone is responsible for assembling a policy platform and staffing for a future administration. In response to various news articles about how conservatives are preparing for a second Trump term, campaign advisers Susie Wiles and Chris LaCivita said in a memo late last year: “Despite our being crystal clear, some ‘allies’ haven’t gotten the hint, and the media, in their anti-Trump zeal, has been all-too-willing to continue using anonymous sourcing and speculation about a second Trump administration in an effort to prevent a second Trump administration.”

Trump’s campaign declined to comment for this story.

Rachel Cauley, CRA’s communication director, said “the so-called reporting from POLITICO in this story is false and we told them so on multiple occasions.”

Trump is not a devout man of faith. But Christian Nationalists have been among his most reliable campaign activists and voting blocs. Trump formed a political alliance with evangelicals during his first run for office, delivered them a six to three conservative majority on the Supreme Court and is now espousing the Christian right’s long-running argument that Christians are so severely persecuted that it necessitates a federal response.

Does anyone have any inside gossip why Salem’s Lot (2023) was shelved

At last year's CinemaCon, Warner Bros. showed off the very first trailer for Gary Dauberman's 'Salem's Lot, an all-new adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel that was originally announced all the way back in April of 2020. Journalists in attendance flooded Twitter with their instant reactions to the footage, calling it "great," "terrifying," and "eerie, creepy, and full of Bill Camp!"

Dauberman's film was originally scheduled to hit theaters in September of 2022, only to be rescheduled to April of 2023. Just this past weekend, in fact. You may have noticed that WB opened a horror movie in theaters last weekend, and that it's doing quite well at the box office ... but you will also notice that film is not Gary Dauberman's 'Salem's Lot.

Today, Warner Bros. once again trotted out their robust slate of films at CinemaCon (if you're unfamiliar, CinemaCon is the big annual dog-and-pony show that the studios put on for theater owners; lots of celebrities, yet-to-be released trailers, and sometimes even full-blown screenings of upcoming movies factor into it). David Zaslav, the CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, appeared onstage early on, hammering home the point that WB has seen the error of its ways and would no longer be premiering films day and date on HBO Max (excuse me, Max) and celebrating the act of seeing new movies in theaters.

The panel went on for hours, showcasing everything from a brief glimpse at George Miller's Furiosa to Ben Wheatley's The Meg 2 (which sounds bananas) to Greta Gerwig's Barbie to Andy Muschietti's The Flash and everything in between. Curiously absent from this conversation: Gary Dauberman's 'Salem's Lot, which - despite having been given a rating by the MPAA in November of last year! - still does not have a release date.

We're talking about a modern adaptation of one of Stephen King's most iconic novels, with a respectable cast (in addition to the aforementioned Bill Camp, 'Salem's Lot also features Alfre Woodard, William Sadler, and Lewis Pullman, among others) and a director who's found plenty of success within the horror genre (Dauberman wrote all three Annabelle movies and both IT and IT: Chapter Two, the latter of which he executive produced), floating around in the ether at a time when horror is doing more than its fair share in terms of getting folks out of the house and into theaters.

So, what the hell is going on here?

For starters, it's possible that 'Salem's Lot is no longer getting a theatrical release. Were it still theatrical and simply being bumped to, say, September or October, it almost certainly would've been mentioned during WB's presentation ... unless, of course, the powers-that-be didn't want to risk embarrassment by selling the CinemaCon crowd on the same film two years in a row ("Wait, didn't we see this trailer last year?"). That's possible, but sending the film directly to Max in time for "spooky season" seems the most likely outcome here.

It's also possible, however unlikely, that they've either Batgirl'd the film or have taken stock and decided to do some reshoots. Given that the film has already received its MPAA rating, that would seem to be extremely likely ... but it's also not entirely out of the question. Stranger things have happened! And if reshoots are taking place, that'd mean getting a number of cast members back together, and many months after the production wrapped. That'd likely lead to scheduling issues (these people have moved on with their lives!), and those scheduling issues might create a substantial delay, the sort of delay that'd explain why WB has gone silent on 'Salem's Lot in the meantime.

Man Accuses NBA Star Dwight Howard Of Sexual Assault During Wild ‘Threesome’

In the lawsuit exhibits obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com, Howard’s Instagram handle and blue checkmark are on display. According to Stephen Harper, the two met on the social media site when the accuser slid into the basketball star’s DMs using his “secondary Instagram account” on May 29, 2021. “I gotchu papi also what are you into? you like freaky s—?” one text from Harper read, to which Howard allegedly responded, “Yes I’m into freaky s—. Now I want you to know I’m not gay or anything. I’m jus alil nasty sometimes. Ion wanna offend you.”

As RadarOnline.com reported, while Harper allegedly told Howard he didn’t want to have a threesome, he claimed that a man dressed as a woman called “Kitty” later showed up at the NBA star’s home. Harper alleged he told Howard he wanted to leave, but the NBA player convinced him to stay.

“Defendant stood up (towering over Mr. Harper), grabbed Mr. Harper by the thighs, forcibly removed Mr. Harper’s underwear, held Mr. Harper down, and performed nonconsensual oral sex on Mr. Harper,” the suit read. “Mr. Harper was in fear of imminent bodily harm when he was pinned down and forced to remain in place while Defendant continued to sexually assault him.”

“A Different World” Cast to Reunite for 10-City HBCU Tour

School is back in session for the cast of A Different World.

PEOPLE can exclusively reveal that the cast of the legendary NBC sitcom are reuniting this month to embark on a national 10-city tour of historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in celebration of the show's 35-year legacy.

Darryl M. Bell (Ronald 'Ron' Johnson), Charnele Brown (Kimberly 'Kim' Reese), Jasmine Guy (Whitley Marion Gilbert Wayne), Kadeem Hardison (Dwayne Cleophus Wayne), Dawnn Lewis (Jaleesa Vinson Taylor), Cree Summer (Winifred 'Freddie' Brooks), Glynn Turman (Col. Bradford 'Brad' Taylor) and Sinbad (Walter Oakes) will all participate in the tour, which will feature panels and other events.

Producers Susan Fales and Debbie Allen will also be included.

The tour will kick off Feb. 29 in Atlanta, Georgia at the prestigious Atlanta University Center — home to Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College and Spelman College.

A full slate will be announced soon, but other cities include Washington, DC (hosted by Howard University) and Montgomery, Alabama (hosted by Alabama State University and Tuskegee University), both in April.

A Different World ran on NBC for six seasons, from Sept. 24, 1987 to July 9, 1993. The series, a spin-off from The Cosby Show, centered on Denise Huxtable (Lisa Bonet) and the life of students at Hillman College, a fictional HBCU in Virginia.

Bonet left the show after the first season, as did Marisa Tomei and Loretta Devine. Future stars who appeared on the sitcom included Jada Pinkett Smith and Karen Malina White, among others.

The show was consistently ranked first or second among Black viewers during most of its run, and is often cited as the defining reason as to why many decided to attend a HBCU.

That's part of the reason the cast from A Different World is getting together now. The tour will not just be a nostalgic trip down memory lane for the Different World family, but also a chance to raise money for scholarship funds. Per the website, Cisco and premiere finance partner Wells Fargo will sponsor the tour "ensuring that more students can access the transformative experience of HBCUs."

"The cast of A Different World has come together to celebrate our 35 year legacy and make more history with today's HBCUs and tomorrow's leaders!" Darryl Bell tells PEOPLE.

"Our mission goes beyond nostalgia. We're on a quest to raise awareness and enrollment for HBCUs nationwide. By leveraging the star power and cultural impact of A Different World, we aim to inspire a new generation to choose HBCUs as their academic homes," the website states. "We're not just telling a story; we're rewriting the narrative."

Shane Gillis, Former ‘SNL’ Cast Member Fired for Racist Jokes Will Host Feb. 24 ‘SNL’

Shane Gillis, the comedian who was fired from “Saturday Night Live” after racist jokes of his resurfaced in 2019, is set to host “SNL” on Feb. 24 with musical guest 21 Savage.

Gillis was hired as a new cast member in September 2019, but was fired a week later after videos surfaced of the comedian using racial slurs in a September 2018 episode of his podcast. Soon after the clip was posted to Twitter, it went viral, leading to an outcry for “SNL” to fire Gillis. The comedian used slurs against Asians and the LGBTQ community in past episodes of his show.

“I’m a comedian who pushes boundaries,” Gillis said in a statement posted on Twitter shortly after the outcry. “I sometimes miss. If you got through my 10 years of comedy, most of it bad, you’re going to find a lot of misses. I’m happy to apologize to anyone who’s actually offended by anything I’ve said. My intention is never to hurt anyone but I am trying to be the best comedian I can be and sometimes that requires risks.”

Gillis released his first comedy special on YouTube in 2021 and his second special, “Shane Gillis: Beautiful Dogs” on Netflix in 2023.

News of Gillis hosting “SNL” was met by confusion and derision by some on X (formerly Twitter).

Bowen Yang Distances Himself From Dave Chappelle During ‘SNL’ Good Night Segment

Bowen Yang didn’t seem too thrilled when Dave Chappelle, for reasons unknown to the audience and apparently some of the SNL cast, jumped on stage during the cast’s good night segment at the end of Saturday’s show.

Chappelle, who has drawn considerable backlash from the LGBTQ+ community for what many perceive as transphobic jokes, had no on-screen role in Saturday’s episode, which was hosted by Dakota Johnson and featured musical guest Justin Timberlake. Shark Tank’s Mark Cuban and Barbara Corcoran took part in a sketch and so were invited to the good night segment, as was Jimmy Fallon, who had joined Timberlake in their Bee Gees impersonations.

But Chappelle just seems to hop up on stage for no reason, standing to the far left of guest host Johnson.

Yang, who is gay, stood unsmiling on the the far opposite side of the stage, his hands crossed at the waist and a distance of at least several feet from anyone else on stage until cast member Sarah Sherman walked over to him and seemed to engage in a brief conversation. After Yang said something to her, she craned her neck around to get a glimpse of Chappelle.

As Sherman looked over at Chappelle, Yang looked into the audience and seemed to say, “Oh,” at which point Sherman patted him on the back.

Chappelle’s last SNL hosting gig in 2022 reportedly angered some of the SNL writers, with some even threatening to boycott the episode. Yang, Sherman and non-binary Molly Kearney were not involved in the 2022 taping when Chappelle hosted.

Deadline has reached out to Yang and SNL for comment.

Ashlee Simpson Reveals Why She Decided To Lip-Synch On ‘SNL’ 20 Years Ago, And It’s A Solid Excuse

“I was like, ’Oh s**t … I’m losing my f**king voice. What am I going to do?” Simpson recalled. “And the next morning I woke up and I couldn’t speak.” Simpson said she immediately went to see a doctor and discovered she had “two nodules beating against each other.”

Simpson said she should have backed out of the gig, but was pressured into lip-synching two songs on the show by a label executive.

Simpson seamlessly synched her first song, “Pieces of Me.” But when she came back onstage later on in the show to perform her second song, “Autobiography,” her band began playing the right instrumentals, but the vocals played over the sound system were the opening lyrics of “Pieces of Me” — revealing the trick to the audience. Simpson did an awkward jig on stage as her band began to play “Pieces of Me,” but she eventually walked offstage and the show cut to commercial.

John Janssen ‘Interested’ in Alexis Bellino After Shannon Beador Split

Oh boy, Alexis Bellino needs Andy, a camera, and an orange immediately. It’s all going down while Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador is on tour with the Tres Amigas and “healing” from her DUI hit-and-run arrest.

Alexis was seen hanging out with Shannon’s ex John Janssen at The Quiet Woman of all places. An impromptu snap appeared on Instagram of Alexis and John side-by-side and you just know Shannon is silently rocking back and forth while counting her lemons in a corner somewhere.

Now the rumor mill is saying something might actually be happening between John and Alexis which might send Shan into the outer limits. Radar has the scoop.

Shannon’s former man is wasting no time getting back on the dating scene. Allegedly. While it seemed like the toxic twosome were going to reconcile their relationship, all bets were off when Shannon slammed into a house.

Funny thing, before the accident, Shannon and John were loudly arguing, according to sources. While they probably weren’t fighting about Alexis, Shannon had a run-in with Alexis at a restaurant in Newport Beach where she was indulging in adult beverages. Insiders said Shannon was “bitching” about the RHOC alum while at the eatery.

Welp, now John and Alexis might be chatting each other up. Insiders are saying John is “interested” in Alexis and luckily she just dumped her fiancée. “John and Alexis are talking,” said one spy. Also, John is supposedly “calling and texting” with Alexis after The Quiet Woman meet-up.

Someone else went ahead and said John and Alexis “are dating” which will most likely cause Shannon to completely implode. Despite the photo and the dating buzz, a source close to Shan said John is “an ass” and a “clout chaser,” which sounds about right. They also called John and Alexis’ situation “gross.”

It’s going to be a hot winter in Orange County with all of this going on. At this time, Shannon has made no comment – in public – about John’s new extra-curricular activities.

Canadian Fundie Family Moves to Russia to Escape Homos, Immediately Regrets It

These fuckin’ idiots!

They sold all their belongings and crowdsourced a buttload of cash to move their family of 10 to Russia, all to escape homosexuals and a secular society. The Russian government promised to set them up with a farm and business loans to restart their lives.

But when they arrived, the Russian bank into which they deposited their hoard immediately froze every ruble, due to the suspiciously large bank balance in such a poor country. The promises of free land also seem to have vanished, and the family is now stranded in a place where no one speaks their language and no one in the state bureaucracy will help them without a bribe. They briefly vented their frustrations online, but the husband posted a public apology afterward, lest he be drafted or fed a polonium smoothie for speaking against the regime.

So now they’re stranded, and their money is likely gone forever, and the dad and possibly the older sons can now be drafted to die in Ukraine. All because they hated gays and wanted to live amongst purer people.

MrBeast says he rakes in $700 million a year

Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson is notorious for shelling out hundreds of thousands of dollars (or even a Tesla) to subscribers, medical patients and folks who participate in his grandiose challenges.

But although the 25-year-old told TIME Magazine in a recent interview that he brings in around $700 million a year in revenue, he doesn’t consider himself rich.

“I mean, not right now,” he added. “I’m not naive; maybe one day.”

So, what exactly does he mean? Donaldson explained that he reinvests most of what he earns back into the company and continues to grow his brand, splurging on increasingly adventurous stunts and cash giveaways.

“It’s a never-ending treadmill for the content obviously,” he said. “It’s brutal. You’re always on, and it’s a lot of pressure. And this whole system is based around 200 million people just magically showing up and watching my next video.”

Donaldson isn’t afraid to cough up the cash in order to produce attention-grabbing content — he’d previously told Business Insider in 2022 that he spends upwards of $8 million a month on his business.

His most popular video, a $456,000 Squid Game Challenge, inspired by the eponymous Emmy-winning Korean TV show, has more than half a billion views on YouTube, while another video shows the YouTuber paying for the cataract surgery of 1,000 blind and near-blind people around the world.

“Each video does a couple million in ad revenue, a couple million in brand deals,” Donaldson told TIME. “I’ve reinvested everything to the point of — you could claim — stupidity, just believing that we would succeed. And it’s worked out.”

That doesn’t mean he isn’t holding onto any funds for himself — TIME reported that the multimillionaire has a personal chef and trainer.

However, he also admitted that he doesn't have access to his bank accounts, and that his mom is "the one who has access to the master bank account," though he also has a CFO.

MrBeast’s strategy is a sound one — and it’s similar to, say, reinvesting your cash dividends into purchasing more shares of a stock. Investors get to supercharge their long-term returns thanks to the power of compound interest.

Donaldson, who has sustained, and grown, a flourishing empire since going viral in 2017 could be looking at the long-term rewards too.

He told Business Insider he’s not concerned about compromising his financial future by splurging on content production. "The videos get views even if I don't upload, so if I really wanted to, I could just live off of the money that the views made," he said.

In a way, he understands the importance of diversification too, running smaller YouTube channels like "MrBeast Gaming” and “Beast Reacts”, dubbing videos in different languages and creating his own snack brand, Feastables.

He also has plans underway for creating digital products, like games and apps, with the aim of only promoting things the MrBeast brand owns in a year or two.

DL travelers: Should I go to the Amalfi coast?

I'm planning a trip to London in May and got the bug to book an excursion to Italy for 2.5 days. I'll be staying between Naples and Sorrento in Torre del Greco. One day will be spent in Naples, the other day in Sorrento/Amalfi, the half day will be devoted to Pompeii. About Amalfi, I've read horrible reviews about the bus ride to Positano, so the only option is to take an hour long ferry from Sorrento. I would like to take a taxi from Amalfi up to Ravello and walk down the 1000 steps back to Amalfi (my poor knees). But I wonder if it's all worth it. It looks like a tourist nightmare. I see some secluded hikes and beaches on the Sorrento peninsula I could go to instead.

Javier Bardem and Chloë Sevigny Join Season 2 of Monster as Mr. & Mrs. Menéndez

Ryan Murphy is done combing through Court TV archives to find his next true-crime subject. The second season of Netflix and Murphy’s hit anthology series, Monster, will follow the real-life story of the Menéndez brothers, convicted in 1996 of murdering their parents. Monsters: The Lyle and Erik Menéndez Story was announced on May 1 with a video that contains the 9-1-1 call a sobbing Lyle made on the night his parents died. Cooper Koch and Nicholas Alexander Chavez will play the brothers. Javier Bardem and Chloë Sevigny have signed on to play José and Mary Louise “Kitty” Menéndez, per Variety. Netflix plans to release an accompanying documentary that promises unprecedented access to the brothers, according to a press release.

The murders occurred in 1989, when José and Kitty Menéndez were fatally shot in their Beverly Hills home. Months later, police began investigating the brothers for their role in their parents death. Erik broke down and confessed to his psychologist, who told his mistress Judalon Smyth. The brothers were convicted only after they were tried together and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Prosecutors argued the brothers killed their parents to hasten their inheritance, while the defense maintained that the boys were the victims of years of mental and physical abuse. Court TV’s coverage of their first trial served as a precursor to our true-crime-obsessed culture today. Recent reevaluations of the case have taken Erik and Lyle’s claims of abuse more seriously, including a Peacock series that alleged Jose Menéndez sexual assaulted former Menudo member Roy Rosselló. Lyle and Erik remain incarcerated. Murphy’s latest fictionalized dive into true crime will air in 2024.

Today's SC primary

I've been watching live coverage of the SC primary on the cable news channels today. It's being reported as a 'record breaking turnout' for the republican primary (in most areas, not all) . It's nice to see these people going out and voting in the primary, so I give everyone credit for that. Everyone's voice needs to be heard.

The live interviews with these primary voters (especially the female and black voters) are mind-boggling, to say the least. There are some reasonable interviews with some of the voters who are backing a preferred candidate, but then there are those who totally bought into the 'stolen election'. What I'm not hearing from any Republican is what the policies of their candidate are which they are happy with, and voting for.

1985's "Hollywood Wives" on ABC - Joanna Cassidy ! Suzanne Somers! Candice Bergen! Stefanie Powers!

How many eldergays watched the 6 hour / 3 part miniseries "Hollywood Wives" when it aired on ABC 39 years ago this week during February sweeps ? It was based on the 1983 best-seller by author Jackie Collins, and she was credited as the 'creative consultant' (but Collins later said she had nothing to do with the mini-series and was disappointed in the actors who were cast). Speaking of the actors, it starred: Suzanne Somers! Candice Bergen ! Joanna Cassidy ! Angie Dickinson ! Roddy McDowall! Mary Crosby! Andrew Stevens! Rod Steiger! Robert Stack ! It was a ratings disappointment for ABC (ranking #7, #13, #2 for the three consecutive evenings it aired), and reviews were negative across the board. However, it became a campy cult favorite and released on DVD in 2015.

Is Bravo "ghosting" the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast?

Real Housewives of Atlanta has become an interesting case in Bravo’s lineup of Housewives programs and reality TV in general. Fans and producers saw RHOA Season 15 take a pretty intense nosedive in terms of viewership.

The Season 15 finale aired on September 10, 2023, over four months ago, and as of now, there’s still no word on when Season 16 might pick up filming. More importantly than that, fans still have no idea who might return for the new season.

Given how successful the Real Housewives of New York Season 14 soft reboot was, many have speculated on if Atlanta will get the same treatment. Andy Cohen admitted the show needs tweaking. In the meantime, Kandi Burruss has shared some thoughts on the matter.

In a recent Amazon Live, a fan asked Kandi what she could tell them about the anticipated RHOA Season 16. “Other than they still haven’t told everybody who they bringing back?” she asked. “They being real trippin’. They acting like people don’t have a life. People got lives around here. We gotta make plans for other things.”

In a separate Live, Kandi admitted, “They [Bravo] are still working on the new cast, so I can’t tell you anything.” She expressed that she would love to be able to tell fans more information but didn’t have anything beyond that. When these clips made their way to Instagram via @theneighborhoodtalk, fans had several opinions, none too great for Kandi.

“Kandi’s story has run its course. There’s no more we can get out of it and care,” one commenter opined. The commenter further expressed their desire for a full-on Atlanta reboot, similar to RHONY. Another commenter wrote, “She so boring, it’s time to give it up.” And one more commenter suggested Bravo get Kim Zolciak back on the show to renew interest.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is expected to return to Bravo before the end of 2024.

Wendy Williams diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia and apahasia

As rumors about Wendy Williams' health continue to swirl, her care team revealed that she's been diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia. A press release from Feb. 22, 2024 confirmed that “after undergoing a battery of medical tests,” Williams was diagnosed with both conditions in 2023.

Aphasia is a disorder that impacts communication, including speech, writing and the ability to understand language. Frontotemporal dementia, also known as FTD, is a progressive condition that effects cognitive function and tends to result in changes in behavior, speech and disposition. Both conditions, her team said, have “presented significant hurdles” in the star's’ life, acknowledging the ongoing speculation about Williams' health.

Not to wander too far into the weeds of out there kinks or things that are unacceptable to society....

I'm thinking more along the lines of something a friend of mine was into....he really had a fetish for guys who were suit and tie types and wore black dress socks. If he was with a guy and he took off the guy's dress shoes to find those sheer sort of black dress socks underneath, he'd literally blow his load right there.

So is there something very specific that turns you on? What is the specific thing? Again, nothing too out there, nothing illegal, thank you....

(Photo for illustrative purposes.....black socks are not my thing, personally)

Feud - Capote vs The Swanns - the incongruities

Yes, starting this thread as this is now all over the place. While enjoying the show, I am a little bit shocked at the liberties taken with real people’s lives:

Did Slim Keith had an affair with Bill Paley while Babe was dying of cancer? Never heard of it but it may have escaped me.

Lee Radzwill was not in Answered Prayers, so she kept being a friend of Capote until the lawsuit with Gore Vidal. In no way would she be leading the mov of swans against him from the start or giving him and Cz the evil eye in a restaurant just after it was published.

The swans, for all accounts, were not actually a group outside the pen ans mind of Truman. The show makes it look like every woman was friends with each other.

More seriously: Truman did not throw Anne Woodward . I don’t think she was even invited or was ever one of her Swans. The episode make Truman look particularly petty and awful. He was no Mother Theresa but that was a very nasty invention.

There is also no indication that Babe Paley was inclined to forgive him.

Trump and Republicans RUN AWAY from Alabama ruling on IVF

Trump says the Alabama Legislature needs to protect access to IVF. The Senate Campaign Committee urges all candidates to support IVF.

They will say they are “pro-family,” and that’s why they can support killing embryos if the goal is having a child, but the position inherently says either that human life does not really begin at fertilization after all, or that it’s okay to kill multiple unborn babies if you mean to give birth to another, which seems ultimately untenable.

Will they get away with having it both ways?

Vice-President Kristi Noem? Will Trump grab her by the pussy?

Donald Trump’s resilience in polls of the Republican presidential primary field is shifting attention to what, for the moment at least, is the only truly competitive national race for 2024: the contest to be his running mate.

Speculation over Trump’s potential vice president — a decision that would rest solely with him — has remained an undercurrent in the primary race as his rivals for the nomination, including former Gov. Nikki Haley and Sen. Tim Scott, a pair of South Carolina Republicans, regularly distance themselves from questions about their possible interest in the No. 2 job.

One Republican welcoming those questions has been Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota. She isn’t running for the White House, and she recently told Fox News that “of course” she would consider joining a ticket with Trump.

Sign up for The Morning newsletter from the New York Times

Noem, 51, fueled further vice-presidential conjecture by endorsing the former president at a rally Friday evening in her home state.

“Tonight, Mr. President, my message is clear: It is an honor to have you with us in South Dakota,” Noem said in front of a crowd of thousands in Rapid City. “You made America great again once. Let’s do it again.”

Trump took the stage, briefly hugging Noem and exchanging words. Then, for a quick second, a graphic reading “TRUMP NOEM 2024” flashed on the giant screen above the stage.

“Kristi is a warrior for American values,” Trump said, going on to compliment her handling of the coronavirus pandemic and her policies in South Dakota.

“I get endorsements, some good, some bad,” he said. “Some don’t mean anything. Hers means a lot.”

While South Dakota holds little sway in the Republican presidential primary contest — and even less in a general election — Noem’s endorsement is noteworthy because only eight of the nation’s 26 Republican governors have publicly picked sides so far.

Beyond Noem, just three — Mike Dunleavy of Alaska, Jim Justice of West Virginia and Henry McMaster of South Carolina — have backed Trump. Two others — Ron DeSantis of Florida and Doug Burgum of North Dakota — are running against him.

“Everybody should consider it,” Noem told Fox News about a potential vice-presidential slot. “If President Trump is going to be back in the White House, I’d do all I can to help him be successful.”

Still, Trump is said to be giving little direct thought to a running mate.

Some close to the former president said that was most likely rooted in superstition that such consideration would jeopardize his own nomination. Others said he had devalued the position, viewing it as little more than a White House staff position that carries little political sway with voters.

Trump raised eyebrows among some associates with private, offhand comments that Scott had not received much coverage for his performance during the first Republican presidential debate. Scott has been mentioned as a potential vice-presidential pick even though he is currently running against Trump, who didn’t participate in his party’s first debate.

Steven Cheung, a spokesperson for Trump, said the vice-presidential speculation showed that “everyone knows President Trump will be the nominee, and he continues to dominate every single poll.”

Along with Scott, other Republican candidates mentioned as potential running mates for Trump have included Haley and the businessman Vivek Ramaswamy. Trump’s two-time running mate, former Vice President Mike Pence, has split with the former president over the 2020 election results. This week, he cast Trump’s populism as “a road to ruin” for the party.

In a radio interview this week, Trump told Hugh Hewitt, a conservative talk show host, that he was unlikely to make an early decision on a vice president — brushing aside the idea that his running mate could help campaign in the spring when the former president is facing multiple criminal trials.

“There’s never been a vice president that got a president elected, because it doesn’t work that way,” Trump said. “It sounds good and everything, but the president gets himself elected.”

It's amazing to think of how many people were exposed to lethal doses of radiation during these tests.

This one linked is called "Castle Bravo," and it had double the impact of what the US Scientists predicted.

It was detonated near Bikini atoll, and the radioactive particles from the demolished coral reef rained down on the people living there, and poisoned them.

Watching the blasts are incredible, but reading about the after effects is quite scary.

Another far right anti-gay guy turns out to be a big huge homo

Michael Voris, founder and president of St. Michael’s Media and Church Militant, has resigned at the request of its board of directors, the Catholic media organization confirmed Tuesday afternoon. Reports of Voris’ ouster initially surfaced Tuesday morning.

“We understand this is a shock to you all, but our founder and former CEO is stepping aside and focusing on his personal health,” the statement added. “The Board of Directors has chosen not to disclose Michael’s private matters to the public. The apostolate will be praying for him, and we kindly ask you to do the same.”

Translation: he got caught being a big 'mo

More about this creep:

He’s hosted MTG for interviews in which the pair agreed that the Catholic Church is “satanic” under relatively moderate Pope Francis.

Voris last year also briefly employed fellow homocon “ex-gay” Milo Yiannopoulos to flog Catholic bric-a-brac on the site’s home shopping channel.

He declared that violence is always an option when dealing with the enemies of the Catholic Church.

Three University of Wyoming Swimmers Killed and Two Injured in Highway Crash

Three University of Wyoming swimming and diving team members were killed in a car crash Thursday afternoon near the Wyoming-Colorado border, the school said.

Sophomore Charlie Clark, 19, of Las Vegas; junior Luke Slabber, 21, of Cape Town, South Africa; and freshman Carson Muir, 18, of Birmingham, Alabama, died in the crash at the intersection of U.S. Highway 287 and Red Mountain Road between Livermore and Virginia Dale, Colorado, the university said in a news release.

“Initial indications are that the driver swerved, and the vehicle went off the road, rolling multiple times. The accident is under investigation,” the release said.

The Colorado State Patrol said Friday that no factors had been ruled out as the case for the crash, including but not limited to speed, impairment, or other distractions.

Two other members of the men’s swimming and diving team suffered non-life-threatening injuries and have been released from the hospital, the Colorado State Patrol said. One of the survivors was driving the vehicle. when it crashed just before 2:45 p.m.

The Toyota RAV4 with five people went off the left shoulder of a southbound lane and rolled multiple times, ejecting two people, according to CSP, which is investigating the accident.

Though the victims were all members of the university’s swimming team, they were not believed to be traveling for an official school function.

“We are heartsick at the news of this terrible tragedy for our university, our state, our student-athlete community and, most importantly, the families and friends of these young people,” UW President Ed Seidel said in a statement. “Words are insufficient to express our sadness.”

UW Director of Athletics Tom Burman said: “My thoughts and prayers are with our swimming and diving student-athletes, coaches, families and friends.”

“It is difficult to lose members of our University of Wyoming family, and we mourn the loss of these student-athletes. We have counseling services available to our student-athletes and coaches in our time of need,” he added.

Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon said he and his wife were “mourning this tragic loss.”

“We ask you to keep their families, friends and loved ones close to your hearts during this difficult time,” he said.

Porsha Williams Files for Divorce from Simon Guobadia After 15 Months of Marriage

Porsha Williams and Simon Guobadia's marriage is coming to an end over a year after they tied the knot.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum filed for divorce from Guobadia on Thursday in Atlanta, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

News of their split comes as rumors fly online about Guobadia's citizen status. However, a source tells PEOPLE the divorce is "unrelated to recent allegations involving Simon's past."

The cause of their split is an "ongoing matter," adds the insider.

Williams, 42, and Guobadia, 59, said "I do" in November 2022 in a Nigerian traditional native law and custom ceremony followed by an American ceremony in Atlanta.

The pair announced their engagement in May 2021 after one month of dating. "Yes we are crazy in love," Williams captioned a selfie with Guobadia. "I know it's fast but we are living life each day to its fullest. I choose happiness every morning and every night."

Guobadia echoed Williams' sentiments, telling his followers that he asked her to marry him "because we checked ALL of each other's boxes, and then some."

Earlier this month, the reality star-turned-entrepreneur — who's mom to 4-year-old daughter Pilar (from a previous relationship) — announced she is set to return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta for its upcoming sixteenth season after two years away from the Bravo series.

She also signed an overall scripted deal with NBCUniversal on "scripted project opportunities across the company's broadcast and streaming properties."

“I’m incredibly thankful for the vision and faith NBCUniversal has put in me to be a larger part of their family,” she said in a statement. “I’m looking forward to being back on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and showing the world my new world!"

Williams first joined RHOA back in its fifth season. After leaving the show in season 13, she and Guobadia appeared together on Real Housewives spinoff Porsha's Family Matters in 2021.

She last starred in the third season of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, which aired last year.

Heritage Foundation planning "Project 2025"

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Donald Trump has plans to radically reshape the federal government if he returns to the White House, from promising to deport millions of immigrants in the U.S. illegally to abolishing government agencies and firing tens of thousands of workers and replacing them with loyalists.

Liberal organizations in Washington are backing President Joe Biden and say they expect Trump to lose. But they're quietly trying to install roadblocks just in case.

A collection of activists, advocates and legal experts is promoting new federal rules to limit presidential power while urging Biden’s White House to do more to protect his accomplishments and limit Trump in a possible second term. All of that is happening with far less fanfare than plans by Trump supporters to create a conservative government-in-waiting via an effort known as “Project 2025.”

The Office of Personnel Management, the federal government’s chief human resources agency, proposed a rule against reclassifying tens of thousands of workers so they can be more easily fired. According to spokesperson Viet Tran, the office will finalize the rule in April. That means that a future administration would likely have to spend months — or even years — unwinding it if they want to try to do so.

Those supporting the effort are open about its limits.

“My impression is the Biden administration is taking very seriously that potential threat and is trying to do things now," said Michael Linden, a former executive associate director of the White House Office of Management and Budget under Biden. But he added, "Nobody should be under any illusion that there’s anything that this president can do in advance to prevent the next president from doing things that are very damaging, potentially catastrophically.”

“There isn't any magic bullet,” Linden said.

The White House is reluctant to talk about a second Trump term before Election Day, as that would imply it has plans for if Biden loses.

Trump "is already telegraphing plays straight out of the authoritarian playbook — gutting the civil service of people he deems disloyal and plotting revenge on his political enemies," said Kevin Munoz, a spokesman for Biden's campaign. "There’s one way of stopping Trump’s dangerous and un-American plans: reelecting President Biden.”

Still, Norm Eisen, who was chief ethics counselor to President Barack Obama, wants Biden to issue executive orders that could limit the use of the military domestically. Trump has talked about sending troops to the southern border or to Democrat-run cities dealing with rising crime rates.

“I understand the potential reluctance to signal any risk here as a political matter and that’s not an illegitimate consideration,” said Eisen, a senior fellow in governance studies at the left-leaning Brookings Institution. “But there are countervailing considerations given the threat that we face.”

Central both to Trump's plans and the Democratic efforts to impede him is deciding how many government workers can be removed by a new administration, potentially to be replaced with loyalists.

Trump at the end of his term sought to reclassify thousands of the more than 2 million federal employees, stripping them of job protections and making them at-will employees under a new classification known as “Schedule F.” Around 4,000 federal employees are now considered political appointees who typically change with each administration. Creating Schedule F could have increased that more than tenfold.

Biden revoked that order but Trump says he'll revive it should he win. And conservatives preparing thick policy books are strategizing on how to fire employees to make more room for Trump appointees.

Can you believe a new democracy would last for only a hundred years?

A hundred years ago all Americans were getting the vote, unionization was providing a living wage for workers, FDR was instituting social security for the aged, creating government jobs to pry us out of the Depression, taxing fairly the ultra rich vs the rising middle class. Then civil rights were front and center moving forward, equal rights for all: women, minorities, the disabled, the disenfranchised, government guaranteed loans for housing for those who never dreamed of it. Affordable healthcare, services for the indigent, sick, needy, children, food for the undernourished, education for all. Anything was possible and everything could be made right and then better. Share and share alike, do the right thing, even if it hurts a little. Hate, facism, bigotry, racism, you fought against. Everything you left the old country for was worth fighting for and changing in the new United States of America. And now.

Violent, diarrhea-inducing Norovirus stomach bug spreads in Northeast

The norovirus, a hypercontagious stomach bug, is sweeping across the Northeast, causing schools to shutter and citizens to suffer from violent diarrhea and other alarming symptoms.

“It is incredibly contagious,” Dr. Alfred Sacchetti from Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden, NJ, told ABC News.

“Just one particle of the norovirus that you ingest will get you sick.”

Recent data from the U.S. Centers For Disease Control and Prevention shows that the Northeast — particularly Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York — has the highest positivity rate for the hypervirulent strain.

A staggering 14% of swab tests in the region came back positive for the gastrointestinal ailment at the beginning of February.

That was up from around 12% two weeks earlier and just 4% in November before the epidemic.

“My 2-year-old was dealing with some stomach issues last week; his whole daycare seems to be having issues,” said Cherry Hill, NJ, resident Jacob Joyner, whose household was stricken with the illness.

And it’s not just those portions of the mid-Atlantic region that have been plagued.

The norovirus is also on the rise nationwide, with 12% of tests returning positive, marking a 3% increase from November.

Unfortunately, the stomach bug — of which there are multiple varieties — is reportedly the leading cause of acute gastroenteritis — or gastrointestinal issues — in the US, resulting in 19 to 21 million cases every year, according to the CDC.

Cases generally spike around February and March when people are most likely to be holed up indoors and, therefore, are in close proximity to one another.

Sufferers commonly contract the virus by ingesting contaminated foods and liquids, touching tainted surfaces and interacting with people infected with the virus.

According to the CDC, people who get it from other people generally do so by caring for them, sharing food or eating utensils with them, or eating food handled by them.

Once infected, the patient can experience a host of alarming symptoms ranging from violent diarrhea to stomach pain and vomiting, which can cause significant fluid loss and eventual dehydration.

These complications begin within 12 to 48 hours after exposure and can persist for three days.

A norovirus is particularly insidious because of how easily it spreads from person to person.

It only takes a few particles to make someone sick while the infectees often remain contagious for weeks after their symptoms improve.

Children are especially likely to facilitate the spread of the contagion, which has ravaged several schools and day-care centers in the Northeast.

Earlier this month, Irving Primary School in Middlesex County, NJ, shuttered due to an outbreak of the stomach bug.

It has since reopened after undergoing a deep cleaning, ABC News reported.

Fortunately, people can mitigate the spread of the norovirus by rinsing fruits and vegetables and thoroughly cooking shellfish and, of course, washing one’s hands, per the CDC.

Unfortunately, unlike the coronavirus and some other bugs, the norovirus has a resistance to hand sanitizer.

“Purel and the alcohol-based stuff doesn’t get through the envelope of the virus, and it’s still contagious on your hands,” declared Sacchetti.

“Soap and water is the only thing that’ll really protect you from this.”

Meanwhile, those infected with the virus are advised to stay home and avoid preparing food for others while sick and for two days afterward.

They should also drink plenty of liquids to replace fluid lost from vomiting and diarrhea.

That will help stave dehydration — the ailment’s most potentially serious symptom.

And this an era ended. NBC was about to cancel the show after this but the ratings for this two-parter ended up getting it renewed. And we got five more seasons as the show went further and further from its roots. (Not like it was ever slavishly devoted to the books anyhow…)

But with the intro of Albert, the slasher film like rape of Sylvia, the horrible tragedy of the School for the Blind fire (couldn’t they give Mary a break?) and then the apex of the nuttiness -Charles building an altar in the wilderness that God hits with lightning and restores comatose Jason Bateman to health, it was a bit much.

Obese struggling gay NYC based comic moves to LA and quickly becomes rich

Tim Dillon is originally from Long Island. He moved to Manhattan and was struggling to get by while working as a Double Decker bus tour guide at the same time as he was starting his stand-up comedy career.

A few years back, he decided to move out to LA. He started getting noticed quickly in the comedy world and developed a hard-core base of straight male fans even though he himself is an out gay male. His podcast numbers grew and grew. He started selling out his comedy shows whenever he traveled out of town to perform somewhere.

Now it seems he's over California and is moving back to NY. He has just put his Hollywood Hills estate on the market for five million dollars . Not bad for a schlubby loud-mouth formerly closeted gay guy who was a drug addict and whose mother (recently deceased) was confined to a mental institution.

I notice that I a becoming such an asshole and I want to stop.

On my walk to work this morning, a mack truck driver went to make a turn but was too late so the truck ended up sticking out in the middle of the road blocking the crosswalk. I had to go around and was a few inches away from traffic. My reaction was to make eye contact, give him two thumbs up, followed by some sarcastic clapping, and topped it off by calling him an asshole.

I feel like I have gotten really angry lately when dealing with the public. My job is very client-facing and I have noticed that requests I get that previously would have been "no problem" are now met with "ugh this fucker". Every trip on the subway is like pulling teeth and toenails because of the idiots that I have to interact with. I find that when I don't have to leave my apartment (nights and weekends) I don't leave my apartment.

This started well after I returned to work so I can't even blame it on the pandemic. I'm in my mid-forties...maybe it's andropause? I don't want to be a bitter old stereotype.....what can I do to be less of a raging bitch?

CNN pulls the plug on "CNN This Morning" with cute Phil Mattingly

When 'Morning Joe' gets to be too self-absorbed in the morning, I like to switch over to CNN and watch their morning show with Poppy Harlow and relatively new anchor Phil Mattingly. The show seems a little more lighter and refreshing, though they're covering the same headlines. Cute Mattingly took over the anchor spot this past summer, after Don Lemon was fired last April, and former host Kaitilan Collins moved to Prime Time.

Two weeks ago, CNN announced the 7am -9 am 'CNN This Morning' would be leaving soon, and they would be getting out of the 'morning news business' production in NYC. They've come in last place behind MSNBC, FOX, and the three network morning shows. Turns out today was the last day, as the cast bid their farewell at the end of the show. CNN says they will find places for Mattingly and Harlow on other news shows.

CNN will move “CNN News Central,” anchored by John Berman, Kate Bolduan and Sara Sidner, to a 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. slot, with Jim Acosta and Pamela Brown taking over new hours at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Black farmer looks to rethink stigma of picking cotton

Old images of African Americans picking cotton remind many of the oppression suffered by generations of Black slaves before the Emancipation Proclamation. For Black Americans in particular, their history with this famous crop, that helps clothe the world, is complicated.

Now Julius Tillery, a Black cotton farmer in North Carolina, is working to turn cotton’s painful story with Black Americans into an affirmation of the economic progress that his community has achieved over the years.

“If I don't create a new history for us, it will always be a bad history,” Tillery told ABC News. “So I think it's really important that the work I do to help and foster a better idea around cotton is important. We have to remember, cotton wasn't the oppressive thing. Cotton is just a plant, and it's a magical plant at that. It was people that were oppressive and made us work like machines.”

Tillery owns several hundred acres of farmland and has been teaching other farmers how to survive in a global economy.

The 37-year-old said it is important for him to see the Black farming community grow.

"It's not many of us. We're basically... extinct," he said. "It's less than 100 Black cotton farmers in the whole country."

Outside of his advocacy, Tillery started a side business, Black Cotton, in 2016. He promotes other cotton farmers across the South. The business has created and sold home décor, jewelry, and accessories handmade with cotton. The tagline for the company is: Cotton is Our Culture. Let's Grow Together.

The company also has partnered with shoemaker and clothing line Vans, which purchased 10,000 pounds of cotton from Black Cotton two years ago. Vans produces streetwear, including a T-shirt with a cotton flower logo that uses cotton from the company.

Vans said it plans to buy more cotton from Black Cotton this year.

Tillery said that he sometimes gets remarks from people who wonder how, as a Black man, he could be a cotton farmer. He said that he sees his work as a way for the community to grow.

"I'm a fifth-generation cotton farmer, and I emphasize that because that means five generations of free men decided to do this work," he said.

The Strange Ones (1957)

The Strange One is a 1957 American film noir about students faced with an ethical dilemma in a military college in the Southern United States. It was directed by Jack Garfein, produced by Sam Spiegel, and was adapted from a novel and stage play by Calder Willingham called End as a Man. It marked the film debut of Ben Gazzara, George Peppard and Julie Wilson. Gazzara, Pat Hingle, Mark Richman and Arthur Storch reprised their roles, after starring in the stage version. The film is noteworthy, due to the entire acting and technical staff being from the Actors Studio. It focuses on the dehumanization associated with the tradition of hazing within the college and is noteworthy for its portrayal of homoerotic themes – and at least one gay character – at a time when the Hays Code prohibited such expression.

Female Golf Instructor Georgia Ball gets "mansplained" on the driving range

Imagine this: You're an experienced golf professional working on your swing. Then, a man interrupts you to tell you what you're doing wrong and demands that you utilize his suggestions without allowing you to get a word in.

That's what happened to PGA certified instructor Georgia Ball, who happened to be recording herself at a range in Liverpool, England. She shared the clip on TikTok, where it amassed more than 10 million views and sparked a fair share of criticism toward the unidentified man.

The viral video shows Ball working on her swing before a voice is heard from the neighboring bay.

"Excuse me, what you're doing there — you shouldn't be doing that," the man says. "You're going too slow on the way up."

Ball attempts to calmly explain that she's exaggerating the motion as part of a swing change that she's going through, but the man continuously interrupts her to insist that she follow his directions because he's been playing golf for 20 years. "All you need to do is follow through," he adds.

Once the man demands that she "just hit one," Ball goes for a swing that looks just as pretty as her previous ones. But the man takes credit, saying, “See how much better that was?" She politely thanks him for his advice after another dismissed attempt to explain her expertise.

Ball's TikTok account, @georgiagolfcoach, has more than 170,000 followers. Seeing that she's posted countless tutorial videos, viewers didn't shy away from calling out their issues with the man's approach.

"Mansplaining at its finest," a user wrote in the video's most-liked comment.

"The NERVE of him to take credit for your next drive is infuriating!" another comment said.

Merriam-Webster defines mansplaining as "explaining something to a woman in a condescending way that assumes she has no knowledge about the topic."

In separate interviews with BBC and British talk show "This Morning," Ball said she sees the humor in it.

[quote] "Although it was an awkward conversation at the time, it's good that I can just look back at it and laugh," she said.

She emphasized that anyone interested in golf shouldn't be discouraged by the exchange, as it was an unusual one. "I have a lot of conversations and most of them are positive," she added.

As for why Ball chose not to mention her credentials during the exchange:

[quote] “As a humble person, it’s just not in me to say, ‘I’m a professional golfer. I know what I am doing,’” Ball said.

The Burning Bed: Mental Mama Murders FOUR Kids and THREE Dogs to Punish Her TWO Exes, Then offs Her ONE Self

This former Missouri Teacher of the Year killed her four kids, then set fire to the house, then offed herself. Three dogs also died in the fire. And wouldn't you know it? It's another Family Annihilator. Her ex-husband, who fathered her two elder kids, wanted her to move closer to the kids' school. She refused. Her ex-boyfriend, who fathered the two younger kids, agreed with the ex-husband and the two men supposedly "ganged up" on her to tell her she was housing her kids in a bad environment. She posted about it on Facebook before she lit the match.

And of course the shit-heap family has already started a GoFundMe to defend this lunatic and bury her four kids, with plans to spend the leftovers on a "Memorial Park" in Ferguson, Missouri.

It faces directly South, so the sun is constantly shining in my living room and heating it up.

With the thermostat off, it still gets up to nearly 80 degrees on cold days, because I keep my windows closed.

It's like a goddamned hot house!

George and Amal Clooney Move to $8.3 Million Estate in France

Amal Clooney had her hands full. Walking alongside husband George Clooney through the streets of Cotignac, a picturesque village in southeastern France, the human rights attorney bent down to pick up and carry her new puppy, Nelson, as the playful young Saint Bernard struggled with learning to walk on a leash. While exploring the little town with their furball, Amal and George also checked out an art exhibition and enjoyed a meal at Picotte restaurant.

But the couple weren’t on vacation. The village, it turns out, is just minutes away from the stunning estate the Clooneys now call home. “George and Amal are thrilled with their decision to relocate to France,” says a source, confirming that in recent months, the Lebanon-born British barrister, 46, and the Oscar-winning American actor-producer, 62, have settled in with their 6-year-old twins, Alexander and Ella, at Domaine du Canadel, a sprawling 18th-century property in France’s Provence region that they purchased for a reported $8.3 million in 2021. “It’s a beautiful setting and completely private, which is what the Clooneys were looking for. It’s a fresh start for their family.”

That’s something Amal wanted. “She was quite adamant about the move and had been suggesting it for years,” says the source. “She felt their home on Lake Como [in Italy] was too exposed, and she didn’t want the children going to school in L.A. or England.” It helps that the kids were well prepared: In 2022, George proudly revealed that Alexander and Ella are fluent in Italian and French! Amal also speaks French.

However, the Clooneys haven’t said au revoir to their other homes entirely. “They still have properties all over,” including their villa in Italy, George’s former bachelor pad in L.A., a NYC apartment, and an estate on the banks of the Thames River outside London. “But they’re making France their home base now.”

Their magnificent 25-room mansion on the shores of Italy’s Lake Como — where they met at a dinner party George hosted in the summer of 2013 — was their previous base on the European mainland. As an insider told In Touch in 2023, one of the drawbacks of living on Lake Como was how there wasn’t much of an extended community there, which meant that almost all of the Clooneys’ social life revolved around their home and hosting guests.

“In Provence, they have neighbors and friends they can interact with,” says the insider. “There’s much more of a community feeling.”

That doesn’t mean they won’t continue to welcome their Hollywood pals. In fact, says the source, the couple are looking forward to throwing dinner parties for A-list friends including Julia Roberts and Danny Moder, Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford, and Brad Pitt and girlfriend Ines de Ramon. Brad lives nearby, “so he’s given advice on the best little towns to visit and romantic restaurants to try on date nights, places where they can go ‘undercover’ and won’t be bothered, even if their famous pals tag along.”

“George and Amal’s lifestyle has really changed since the move,” says the source, noting that the Clooneys spend more time outdoors now. And when they venture into nearby villages, “they’re able to walk around town virtually unnoticed. They feel safe there.” And blissfully happy. “While George was hesitant about the move at first — he’s always adored his home on Lake Como — he’s come to love France,” says the source, adding that George also has more time to spend there now that he’s once again decided to step away from Hollywood.

As he admitted a few years ago, after taking a break from acting from 2016 to 2020, the roles he’s presented with just aren’t getting him excited like they used to. Though he’s still producing and will return to the big screen at some point, right now he and Amal “like exploring new places and frequently visit different areas of the countryside. They’re really carving out an idyllic life together in France.”

Gay adult film actor-turned-Proud Boy from Pasco gets jail time for Capitol riot

No I didn't do a search and don't give a shit if it is a duplicate thread.

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A Pasco County man described as a gay “adult film actor” and member of the Proud Boys, a far-right militant group, was sentenced to prison for his role in the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

The FBI arrested Steven Miles, 40, of Zephyrhills in April 2022 after he was caught on camera assaulting Capitol police officers with his fellow Proud Boys in an attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election

Miles was charged with assaulting, resisting, or impeding officers, civil disorder, engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or grounds with a dangerous weapon, and related offenses. In a D.C. courtroom on Friday, he was sentenced to two years in prison, a year of supervised release, and ordered to pay $2,000 in restitution.

He was tried alongside a codefendant, Matthew Lebrun of New Orleans, after the FBI received a tip from a woman who posed for a photo with the two men. She recalled the men saying, among other things, that they entered the Capitol building by breaking a window.

AIDS activist Hydeia Broadbent dies at 39

Hydeia Broadbent started speaking publicly about her experiences as someone with HIV/AIDS when she was a young child.

“I want people to know that we’re just normal people,” a 7-year-old Broadbent told Magic Johnson during a Nickelodeon news special that aired in March 1992, four months after the Lakers superstar announced he was retiring from basketball because he was HIV-positive.

Broadbent never stopped speaking out about the virus and disease — and Johnson thanked her for her courage.

A leading activist in HIV/AIDS awareness, Broadbent, who was born with HIV, died Wednesday at age 39, her father said in a Facebook post. The cause of death was not specified.

"With great sadness, I must inform you all that our beloved friend, mentor and daughter Hydeia, passed away today after living with AIDS since birth," Loren Broadbent wrote. "Despite facing numerous challenges throughout her life, Hydeia remained determined to spread hope and positivity through education around HIV/AIDS."

Johnson took to X (formerly Twitter) on Wednesday to pay tribute to his longtime friend. His post included a video clip of their interaction on "Nick News with Linda Ellerbee" as well as photos of the two of them together in the years since then.

"I’m devastated to hear about the passing of an incredible young woman, activist and hero Hydeia Broadbent," Johnson wrote. "In 1992, I did a Nickelodeon special called 'A Conversation with Magic', and 7-year-old Hydeia and I made an incredible impact. Hydeia changed the world with her bravery, speaking about how living with HIV affected her life since birth. She dedicated her life to activism and became a change agent in the HIV/AIDS fight.

"By speaking out at such a young age, she helped so many people, young and old, because she wasn’t afraid to share her story and allowed everyone to see that those living with HIV and AIDS were everyday people and should be treated with respect. Thanks to Hydeia, millions were educated, stigmas were broken, and attitudes about HIV/AIDs were changed. We will miss her powerful voice in this world. Cookie and I are praying for the Broadbent family and everyone that knew and loved Hydeia."

Broadbent was abandoned as a newborn at a Las Vegas hospital and adopted by her parents, Loren and Patricia, as an infant. They didn't know that Broadbent was born with HIV until she got seriously ill at 3. At that age, she was diagnosed as HIV-positive, and two years later, the virus developed into AIDS. Her biological mother was an intravenous drug addict.

Broadbent's public speaking career began when she was 6. Soon after, in March 1992, Broadbent was one of 13 children who appeared with Johnson and Ellerbee on Nickelodeon after Johnson shocked the world with his HIV announcement in November 1991.

Dealing with a parent who has dementia

How do you cope with a parent who has dementia? My mom was diagnosed with vascular dementia a few months ago. She's always been cantankerous and strong-willed to put it mildly, but lately she is aggressive and paranoid. She does not like the fact that I've taken more of a parental role and she is desperately grabbing for independence and power. She gets mad at me for providing help and insists she's independent but then will huff and puff if I don't instantly drop what I'm doing and help her. Lately, I can't even go to the bathroom without her being passive aggressive as she thinks I'm ignoring her if I don't instantly do her list of wants.

Unfortunately, to make this situation worse, my dad is not on the same page. He is slowly waking up to the fact that she has dementia but his goal is to make her happy instead of doing what she needs/what is best for her. I understand that somewhat as sometimes it is easier to keep the peace, but he needs to start not always deferring to her and letting her have her way especially as she progresses.

She thinks I'm trying to gain power and control and really I'm just trying to help take care of her.

“Life With Beth” starring Amy Schumer is pretty fucking stupid … anyone else watching???

It’s created and written by Schumer (aka she probably stole a bunch of it from someone else) like Trainwreck and it fits the same delusion that movie did. Amy Schumer gets the hotties but ends up being the one to settle for the average nerd (Bill Hader in Trainwreck, Michael Cera here). She is going through life trying to learn about herself and love etc.

It’s pretty bad, minus a few moments here and there. The episode with Jonathan Groff was good.

The only real highlight of the show is Michael Cera, surprisingly. He comes off very likable and charming in this, and looks pretty cute with the facial hair. Amy Schumer plays the same character she does in everything. I really don’t get how she’s a thing.

Married Baltimore rabbi found guilty of assaulting young boys at Orthodox Jewish summer camp

Rabbi Steven 'Shmuel' Krawatsky, 47, was accused of abusing the boys who were then between seven and eight-years-old at Camp Shoresh in 2014 and 2015.

Two of the victims claimed to have been anally raped, while another said the camp counselor offered him $100 to touch his genitals, according to the complaint which sought a $1.8 million payout.

Last week, a jury ruled that he committed assault against one child and battery against another, claims against the third child were not upheld. Each victim has now been awarded $1 in compensatory and $8,000 in punitive damages.

The accusations first surfaced in a 2017 in a post by sexual abuse survivor Chaim Levin and were later reported in a 2018 New York Jewish Week article.

The married rabbi then tried to sue Levin, the publication, its reporter and the parents over the accusations. The parents countersued for the abuse of their children and Krawatsky's claims were dismissed.

According to the lawsuit, Krawatsky would often host sleepovers with children at his house and would also dole out 'punishments' in the camp's pool changing room, without any other adults present. Krawatsky, of Pikesville, previously denied the allegations and has not faced any criminal charges, despite being interviewed by police and Child Protection Services who initially found indications of abuse according to the civil lawsuit against him.

British Sunday Roast Dinner - your favorite menu?

Have recently become aware of, and am now obsessed with, the "Sunday Roast" phenomenon after watching "Traitors".

I grew up in a large family in California in the 1960s-1970s and the only equivalent would be Thanksgiving, XMas, and Easter diners, but with "Diner Rolls" (boring) instead of Yorkshire Pudding. The potatoes were always mashed, not roasted in goose fat. Except for carrots and potatoes, we always had green vegetables, never root vegetables.

IIRC, my mom would occasionally cook a large hunk of animal on a Sunday (usually a chicken, sometimes pot roast, which all of us kids despised)... but there'd be GRAVY! = Graxy to us DL Eldergays. I don't really care for meat, but real gravy makes everything better, and I've never learned how to do it. Packaged and jarred gravy won't do.

America Ferrera scores another big gig after Oscar nom- set to produce and star in new series “Naked By The Window”

“ America Ferrera‘s hot streak continues, as the Barbie Oscar nom has been set to executive produce and star in Naked by the Window, a series adaptation of the book by Robert Katz, which has landed at Amazon MGM Studios for development following a bidding war.

Originally published in 1990, the book tells the true story of the groundbreaking Cuban artist Ana Mendieta, her formidable impact on the New York art scene, and the controversial trial of her sculptor husband, Carl Andre, for her sudden and tragic death.

Charise Castro Smith (Encanto) will write and exec produce the series, with Plan B also on board to executive produce.

Regarded as one of the most influential Cuban-American artists of the post-WWII era, Mendieta is celebrated for her groundbreaking work in the fields of performance art, sculpture, and land art. Known for works examining themes of identity, feminism, and the relationship between the human body and the earth, she saw the latter take particular focus in her well-known “Silueta” series, juxtaposing her silhouette with natural elements like earth, rocks, and fire. Mendieta died in 1985, when she fell from Andre’s 34th floor apartment. She was 36.

An Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award winner, Ferrera is currently enjoying a career high point, on the heels of an Oscar nomination for her role as Gloria in Warner Bros’ cultural phenomenon, Barbie. Currently developing her feature directorial debut I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter with Amazon MGM Studios’ Orion Pictures, Ferrera was also this week set to star opposite Matthew McConaughey in Paul Greengrass’s Apple drama The Lost Bus, about California’s deadly Camp Fire of 2018. Also coming up for her is Pixar’s Elio, in which she voices a key role.

Best known for co-writing and co-directing Disney’s Oscar-winning animated feature Encanto, Smith has also served on the writing and producing teams of series including Sweetbitter, The Haunting of Hill House and The Exorcist, prior to that writing on Devious Maids.

Overseen by Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, Plan B is currently in theaters with its Paramount musical drama Bob Marley: One Love, and has amongst its upcoming films Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, the Apple/Sony thriller Wolfs starring Pitt and George Clooney, Bong Joon Ho’s Mickey 17, Joseph Kosinski’s Pitt-led Formula One film for Apple, and Nia DaCosta’s Hedda, among others. The company also produces Netflix’s sci-fi series 3 Body Problem from Game of Thrones‘ David Benioff & D.B. Weiss and Alexander Woo, which bows on the platform on March 21st.“

Tom Sandoval slams Rachel Leviss after she blocks him on social media!

Tom Sandoval is determined to have the last laugh after Raquel Leviss revealed she blocked him on social media.

“When somebody said she blocked [me], I was like ‘Oh, OK, whatever. Maybe her parents were going to dock her allowance this week or something,’ but to post that on her story is pretty childish," Sandoval, 41, told Variety on Wednesday, September 13. “I just wished her a happy birthday. I didn’t think she had a lot of people reach out to her, so I wanted to. I mean, if she’s working on herself, I think it’s a little immature — it’s a little thirsty — to post that.”

The Vanderpump Rules costars made headlines in March after news of their affair broke, resulting in the Bravo show resuming season 10 filming. Sandoval and Ariana Madix, who dated for nearly a decade, subsequently called it quits as a result of his infidelity. As the drama played out publicly, Leviss, 29, issued an apology to Madix, 38, and announced plans to check into a mental health facility.

"I have begun counseling to end my unhealthy behavioral cycle, learn to set stronger emotional boundaries and learn to protect my mental health," she wrote via Instagram at the time. "I don't expect sympathy, understanding or forgiveness. Right now I must focus on my own health and well-being and as I strive to be a better person moving forward, I will prioritize my mental health and learn from my mistakes."

Leviss ultimately entered a 90-day program in a treatment center as her former coworkers filmed season 11 of Vanderpump Rules without her. After she left the facility, Leviss returned to social media and Sandoval surprised Bravo viewers with his public comment to a post.

"Rachel, I really hope ur finding peace and happiness. Miss u friend," he wrote on Tuesday, September 12, using her given name. Leviss then shared screenshots of Sandoval's Instagram account, which she now has blocked.

Weeks before publicly cutting Sandoval out of her life, Leviss broke her silence in a three-part podcast with Bethenny Frankel.

“Part of the reason why I wanted to take some time away is just because it was so chaotic and loud and there was such vitriol online. But then the other part of the reason why I wanted to go to a treatment facility was to understand my behaviors,” she said on iHeartRadio’s “ReWives” podcast in August. “And my goal was to really get down to the bottom of, ‘OK, why am I choosing men that are unavailable? Why do I keep finding myself in unhealthy relationships? What are the things that I need to change about my behavior?’ And in knowing that I needed to make a change, I first had to know what it was that leads to those behaviors.”

She added: “It took me a while to accept, but I learned about love addiction and it's a real thing. It's where you confuse intensity for intimacy. And those chemical changes in the brain are the same chemical changes that happen when you take drugs. So it is addictive, and it explains why I couldn't stop seeing this person, but it also doesn't excuse the fact that it happened. But now I know better.”

SandovaL took a different approach in addressing the aftermath of the affair, continuing to tour with his band, Tom Sandoval and the Most Extras, and resuming filming the next season of the hit Bravo series.

The restaurant owner also attempted to make his version of amends by joining Fox's Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test. “The whole country [is] pissed off at me,” he said in the season 2 trailer, which was released in August. “I had an affair and I want to take a beating.”

The company is citing a lease with unfavorable terms and high rent as reasoning for leaving the building, a former bank in which the company's Tony Kiser Theater has been housed since 1999.

Following the loss of the company's Off-Off-Broadway theatre on the Upper West Side last year, this move will leave Second Stage with just one dedicated venue, Broadway's Hayes Theater. The theatre company is nevertheless still planning to produce work Off-Broadway, at a new venue to be determined.

The move makes Second Stage the latest theatrical non-profit to announce major cutbacks, with many companies still struggling to recover from pandemic losses. In just the past few months, major cuts were revealed at Chicago's Steppenwolf and Lookingglass, Off-Broadway's The Public Theater and Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Los Angeles' Center Theatre Group.

And those cuts are only part of a rapidly changing landscape Off-Broadway. Backstage workers at Titaníque, a commercial Off-Broadway production, and Off-Broadway non-profit Atlantic Theater Company have both recently voted to unionize via IATSE, and many industry insiders are expecting similar votes at other companies to follow. While providing increased safety and wages for the workers, the shift has the potential to make a profound effect on the Off-Broadway business model.

The move also intensifies the moment of transition Second Stage was already in as a company. Longtime Artistic Director Carole Rothman revealed last year that she will leave the company this spring, and a search for a successor is currently underway.

The lease is reportedly set to expire at the end of 2024, though it remains unclear if any new productions will play the space going forward. The Tony Kiser Theater is currently hosting Kate Douglas' The Apiary through March 3. On Broadway, the company is currently running Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' Appropriate through March 3 at the Hayes. The production has become an audience favorite, and is getting a commercial extension that will begin March 25 at the Belasco, a transfer that could well bolster the company's financial standings. They are also producing Mother Play, a world premiere from Paula Vogel, at the Hayes beginning in April.“

America Ferrera cast as the lead opposite Matthew McConaughey in “The Lost Bus”

“ Ferrera has signed on to star in Oscar nominee Paul Greengrass’ upcoming drama “The Lost Bus” alongside Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey, Variety has learned exclusively.

Being developed, produced and distributed by Apple Original Films with an original script by Brad Inglesby (“Mare of Easttown”), the film is based on Lizzie Johnson’s book “Paradise: One Town’s Struggle to Survive an American Wildfire” about the devastating 2018 California wildfires that resulted in over 100 deaths and destroyed the majority of the town of Paradise. The fires were the deadliest in the state’s history. The movie centers on Kevin McKay (McConaughey) and Mary Ludwig (Ferrera), a bus driver and teacher who lead a school bus full of young students through the Camp Fire. The film will go into production this spring.”

Color me not shocked (except for the fact that Nauta was stupid enough to do this at the White House.) Trump's only real skill in life is zeroing in on stooges. So many stooges it boggles

[QUOTE]When Donald Trump invited his longtime White House valet, Walt Nauta, to join his post-presidential political operation in August 2021, he was hiring a body man with serious baggage.

[QUOTE]Weeks before Nauta—a Navy enlistee stationed with the White House Presidential Support Detail since 2012—traded Washington, D.C., for Palm Beach, Navy officials had escorted him off White House grounds, reassigned him to a new post, and docked his White House security clearance in response to accusations of fraternization, adultery, harassment, and other inappropriate sexual conduct, including “revenge porn,” two people with direct knowledge of the matter told The Daily Beast...

[QUOTE]Nauta, both sources said, was accused of violating this prohibition (fraternization) in multiple overlapping and emotionally abusive romantic relationships while he was married and assigned to the White House. The “revenge porn” included supposedly compromising images of women that Nauta had allegedly retained and threatened to make public, according to the sources.

Tesla stiffs baker/small business owner out of $16,000 by canceling at last moment and not paying

I posted the highlights (but not the entire article) preemptively so the perpetually aggrieved Great More Clicks for Murdoch™️ troll can stifle it.

She worked in good faith and got screwed badly. She apparently works with a lot of Silicon Valley companies and maybe doesn't take deposits on good faith that they can pay. Is it common for large companies besides Trump & Co to pull shit like this?

_______

A California bakery owner was left “high and dry” after electric car maker Tesla placed an order for $16,000 worth of pies — only to cancel just before the delivery went out the door.

Voahangy Rasetarinera, owner of The Giving Pies in San Jose, received the order on Valentine’s Day for 4,000 pies from a rep at the Elon Musk-owned company, she told NBC Bay Area.

The Tesla worker reportedly told the black business owner — beloved by other Silicon Valley heavyweights — that company wanted the pies delivered the following week for an event to commemorate Black History Month.

After taking on the heavier workload, Rasetarinera then said she received a text message from the Tesla rep, which read: “It unfortunately sounds like we will be changing plans and will not be needing this order. Thank you so much for your support I appreciate it.”

Rasetarinera said that her business suffered a loss in excess of $16,000 as a result of the last-minute cancellation.

This abrupt reversal left me reeling, realizing the extent of the impact on my small business,” Rasetarinera wrote on her Facebook page.

I had invested time, resources, and effort based on assurances from Tesla, only to be left high and dry.”

When she inquired with Tesla about the cancellation, she was told the decision came from upper management.

The “attempt to shift blame to upper management only compounded the betrayal I felt,” she said

Gayle King has made the CBS Mornings show into a daily discussion on race equality and education

I swear this show has become worse than CNN in how obsessed it is with race. They could barely bring themselves to have a mention of Pride month during all of June, with only periodic mentions of something that might be remotely relative to LGBT people. But every fucking day we get a race-based education. Today was no exception. Flamboyant, closeted gay Vlad Duthiers used half his segment to lament how Angela Bassett SHOULD have been given the Academy Award this year and how giving her an honorary Oscar is "patronizing. Gayle jumped-in to agree and the next couple of minutes was spent on gushing over Miss. Angela B. But wait, up next the author of "American WhiteLash" will be here to talk about the rage of white people and how the "forces of white power have retaliated against (President) Obama's victory". All this, at 7:30a.m. And no, I'm not wanting to watch GMA style mommy frau segments on home decorating. But this used to be a brilliant morning show. And Gayle King used to be a journalist.

Facing mounting debt, three-quarters of U.S. workers want to get paid every day

On-demand streaming, delivery, and, next up, on-demand compensation. The biweekly paycheck is on the cusp of disruption, although expansion plans have hit a snag among skeptical financial regulators.

Called earned wage access (EWA), these programs allow employees to collect their pay at the end of each workday. Major corporations such as Walmart and Amazon have already started offering in-house EWA programs for their employees, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced last month that it would be issuing federal guidance on EWA soon.

Increasing momentum around EWA is an encouraging sign for its proponents, who say that these programs could help scores of Americans who run out of money before the end of the standard two-week pay period in covering daily expenses such as food, gas, and utility bills.

But to hit the U.S. mass market, EWA advocates first have to convince regulators that they’re different from payday lenders—and that EWA is a tool to help Americans get out of debt, not the other way around.

EWA and payday loans do exhibit differences. Many EWA providers don’t charge interest to employees who collect pay early from an employer, and instead make money from contracts with businesses, similar to the way services such as ADP operate. But one factor working against widespread adoption is that some companies that brand themselves as EWA providers, such as MoneyLion and EarnIn, charge optional consumer fees for the service. These fees have drawn criticism and comparisons to payday lenders.

“We look at these products as a payday loan with a fintech veneer,” said Andrew Kushner, senior policy counsel for the Center for Responsible Lending, in an interview with CBS 8 San Diego.

Yet EWA has been rolled out successfully in Europe and the U.K.—97% of participating U.K. firms said that EWA programs improved their employees’ sense of financial security.

On this side of the pond, however, it’s been a tougher sell. Some 76% of American employees say they want to be able to collect their wages daily, but consumer-lending regulations are working against EWA programs, even if they don’t charge interest.

Short-term consumer lending doesn’t have the best reputation: High-interest payday loans burst onto the scene in the 1990s, taking advantage of a regulatory loophole to balloon into a $9 billion industry that’s been shown to send users, who trend low-income, into permanent debt spirals. The CFPB proposed federal-level rules in 2017, but states have taken on the majority of the regulatory responsibility, which has created a patchwork of state-level laws that make it complicated for EWA providers to get nationwide approval.

But that could be set to change, as EWA payroll providers call for federal-level regulations that would allow for widespread adoption of what they call a “no-brainer.”

“EWA is like a vaccine for financial wellness,” said CloudPay vice president Borja Perez in an interview with Fortune. “We’re just trying to empower employees to really manage the disease [of] financial stress.”

As household debt levels reach record highs, zero-interest EWA programs could provide relief for the more than 60% of Americans who live paycheck-to-paycheck. EWA gives employees a way to access compensation as soon as they’ve earned it, rather than having to wait multiple weeks for payday or shoulder interest on short-term loans or credit card bills.

Many payroll platforms that support EWA, such as CloudPay, work by giving employees the option to redeem payroll deposits at the end of every workday. Employees with access to these types of plans don’t pay any fees or interest to use the service.

Shaq to the rescue with size 23 sneakers for teen with big feet ""What's up big sexy ?"

he Independence teen who wears a size 23 shoe is finally comfortable thanks to the Kansas City community and one big-name celebrity.

Jor’el Bolden first sat down with KCTV 5 in January to discuss his struggle to find shoes.

To find a size 23, they would need custom-made shoes, which can cost more than a thousand dollars. Bolden’s mother, Tamika Neal, made a GoFundMe account to raise the money to buy her son shoes that didn’t hurt his feet.

After the story aired, Kansas City poured in donations. More than $11,000 so far.

“I’m overwhelmed and excited because [his foot size] is something I don’t have control over but as a parent not being able to provide something that your kid needs - it does something to you- so just having people reach out and pull through for us,” said Neal. “It was amazing.”

The story also garnered national attention.

“Entertainment Tonight, they messaged me and she was like ‘someone special wants to talk to you’,” Neal said.

That someone special was retired NBA Star, Shaquille O’Neal. Shaq wanted to speak with Bolden and send him a gift. He got the phone number and made a Facetime call.

“[Jor’el] didn’t have a shirt on,” Neal said. “I said, ‘I’m sorry he doesn’t have a shirt on’ and [Shaq] said ‘What’s up big sexy?’”

Stabbing on airplane to Las Vegas. Psycho shanks total stranger over gangstalking delusions.

A passenger aboard a Las Vegas-bound flight fashioned a weapon out of pens and rubber bands and stabbed a fellow passenger in a bloody, unprovoked attack, officials said Thursday. Julio Alvarez Lopez was charged with one count of assault with a deadly weapon stemming from the Jan. 24 attack aboard Alaska Airlines Flight 604, which had left Seattle at 6:10 a.m., authorities said. Lopez had been acting “fidgety,” a person sitting next to him told investigators, before he went to the bathroom late in the flight and returned to launch an attack on the man seated across the aisle, according to a complaint by FBI Special Agent Anthony Needler. There was “blood everywhere,” according to Lopez’s seat neighbor. Lopez eventually stopped the stabbing, dropped the homemade weapon, moved toward the front of the plane, yelled, “I’ll only talk to the FBI,” and took an empty seat, according to the complaint. Lopez had never met the victim, yet believed him to be a cartel agent following him, authorities said. “The defendant felt the Mafia had been chasing him the last few months,” the complaint said. The victim, identified only by the initials C.R., just happened to be a sworn law enforcement officer, though the complaint did not list the agency that employs him. The victim’s wife was also hurt in the attack as she was shielding the couple’s 7-year-old son, officials said.

Made for TV murder in Oz!

Murder, Gaga, dirty cop, flight attendant, TV personality, missing bodies, racist violence, a whiff of gay three-way sex... who gets the call: Ryan Murphy or Gloria Allred?

"An Australian police officer has been charged with the double murder of a TV presenter and his flight attendant boyfriend, whose bodies have yet to be found.

Beau Lamarre, a 28-year-old serving police constable, was detained after a high-profile three-day search across Sydney, Det Supt Danny Doherty said.

Earlier this week, the chance discovery of bloodied clothes in a suburban rubbish bin led detectives to the home of former red carpet host and entertainment journalist Jesse Baird, 26.

On searching Mr Baird’s inner-city flat, detectives said they found “a large amount of blood” and held “grave concerns” for both him and his boyfriend, Luke Davies, a 29-year-old Qantas flight attendant. Both are presumed dead.

A projectile found at the apartment matched that of a police-issue firearm, which has since been found inside a police station safe.

The accused officer had reportedly been with Mr Baird, a presenter on Australia’s Network Ten, but the relationship recently ended and on bad terms.

On Friday the officer turned himself in to Bondi Police Station, near the country’s famed beach.

Footage of the arrest shows him handcuffed and escorted into the building wearing a dark baseball cap and sneakers. He remains in custody and police will oppose granting bail.

Australian media reported that the suspect had been a celebrity chaser and blogger before joining the police force, and had been photographed with Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Ben Stiller and scores of others.

He was previously investigated over the aggressive tasering of an Aboriginal man in 2020, after video of the incident emerged online.

News reports from 2014 indicate that he came out publicly as gay by throwing a letter onstage at a Lady Gaga concert, which the star read out to a crowd that included his sister.

Mr Doherty added that the police focus was now on locating the bodies of the two missing men, whose remains are suspected to have been transported in a white van before being disposed of. Forensic examinations of the van are ongoing.

“It’s really important that we do locate the bodies, not only for the cause of death but also for answers for the family who are grieving,” said Mr Doherty."

Donna Summer's last Top 40 was released 35 years ago

On February 13, 1989, Donna Summer released what would be her last Top 40 single : "This Time I Know It's For Real". It was released as the first single from her 14th studio album, 'Another Place and Time', and was written and produced by the British team SAW, as was the rest of the album (though Summer had a hand in writing this first single).

The album was originally completed in 1988, as Summer's final product under her Geffen contract. Once again, David Geffen did not like the album and would not release it. At that point, he agreed to let Summer out of her contract and gave her the album back. Summer shopped it around to different labels for US release (as she was contracted under WB Records for outside the US). Atlantic Records decided to release it for her.

'This Time I Know It's For Real' took off like a rocket, and peaked at # 7 on June 24,1989, ten weeks after its release. It stayed on the Hot 100 for 17 weeks. It became Summer's biggest hit in the UK over the past decade, peaking at #3. It peaked at #7 in Canada, and hit the top 10 in most every country it was released in.

The album itself was released a month later (March 13)in the US, peaking at #53. (Many believe it would have charted higher, but because the US release was delayed, many fans had bought the UK import). The album peaked at #17 in the UK. A follow-up project for 1990 was never completed, as Summer didn't have time to travel back to the UK to record the tracks. SAW handed the project over to singer Lonnie Gordon.

America's gritty still affordable big cities : A Chicago versus Philadelphia comparison

Various opinions posted online-

Chicago beats Philly on a city vs city basis but Philly beats Chicago weather and location wise due to train access to the entire east coast.

Love Chicago. Love Philly. I think there’s a lot of crossover appeal. Both are amazing food cities. Arguably both top five in the US. Both are less transient than places like DC, NYC, or LA. They’re places where people stay for generations. This impacts the culture. Both are big sports cities. Big beer cities. Both have some great parks and nature inside city limits . And both have a certain tough exterior, but are filled with down-to-earth, good, working class people.

Chicago has good restaurants. Philly has the best restaurant culture in the US and it is completely underrated.

I think Chicago itself is better than Philadelphia, assuming both cities existed in empty vacuums. But Philadelphia has better location. There are no places near Chicago I would want to visit. But Philadelphia is near Baltimore, New York, and Boston.

I loved the small size and walk-ability of Philadelphia. The winters are better in Philly and I loved the 18th century housing stock. Rent was cheaper. People in Chicago are friendlier - Philly has a lot of aggro, which I got tired of dealing with. In general I like Chicago more than Philadelphia - it’s a kinder and gentler place .

Each has their ups and downs. The easy access to public transit - Philly has decent public transit. The light rail is good. Chicago gets the nod here however as overall Philly relies too much on buses. A bonus Philly DOES have however is that from Philly you can get a train to NYC (2 hours) or DC (3 hours). The lake - Philly does not have a lake, however it's only 2 hours from the New Jersey Shore. (nod Chicago). The affordability - Philly is more affordable than Chicago. The vibrant summers with so much to do are a huge plus. - Philadelphia also has great summers. (Philly gets the nod here however as the Philly winters are better than Chicago's) East Coast culture/social scene/mountains - Philly is 2 hours from the Poconos, and has more culture than you know what to do with. Lgbt friendly - Philly is very LGBT friendly.

I'm very glad that Morning Joe is featuring Chris Matthews more. Basically, they're bringing him out of obscurity. BUT, this morning, I noticed how thin Chris is. He is so thin that it made me wonder if he might be suffering from some sort of illness.

Letitia James says she's prepared to seize Trump's buildings

Four days after a judge ordered former President Donald Trump to pay $354 million in his civil fraud case, New York Attorney General Letitia James told ABC News that she is prepared to seize the former president's assets if he is unable to find the cash to cover the fine.

"If he does not have funds to pay off the judgment, then we will seek judgment enforcement mechanisms in court, and we will ask the judge to seize his assets," James said in an interview with ABC News' Aaron Katersky.

Trump was fined $354.8 million plus approximately $100 million in pre-judgment interest on Friday after Judge Arthur Engoron determined that he inflated his net worth in order get more favorable loan terms.

The former president has denied all wrongdoing and has said he will appeal.

Saying that she was "very confident" with the strength of her case on appeal, James reiterated that her office would not hesitate to seize Trump's assets -- mentioning Trump's 40 Wall Street skyscraper by name -- if the former president is unable to find the cash to cover the court-ordered disgorgement.

"We are prepared to make sure that the judgment is paid to New Yorkers, and yes, I look at 40 Wall Street each and every day," James said of the standard court process for collecting judgments in civil cases.

James directly countered Trump's allegation that the case lacked any victims, instead describing her case as vital to ensuring financial markets treat New Yorkers fairly.

"Financial frauds are not victimless crimes. He engaged in this massive amount of fraud. It wasn't just a simple mistake, a slight oversight, the variations are wildly exaggerated, and the extent of the fraud was staggering," James said. "If average New Yorkers went into a bank and submitted false documents, the government would throw the book at them, and the same should be true for former presidents."

James also rebuffed Trump's allegation that the case will prompt a mass exodus of business activity from New York.

"Last I checked tourism is up. Wall Street is doing just fine," James said.

With Trump losing two civil cases against columnist E. Jean Carroll, facing Georgia election interference charges from Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, and now losing his case against James, the New York AG concluded the interview with an observation about Trump's legal cases.

"Someone once told me if you want something done, give it to a woman," James said.

Fall in numbers brought end to Durrell run which previously featured Superman star Henry Cavill

Duwwell!

Dwindling numbers of participants and rising costs are the reasons why Durrell’s running challenge has been brought to an end after “nine brilliant years”.

Organisers announced on Tuesday that the Durrell Challenge, a 13km road run from Victoria Park to Jersey Zoo, would “no longer be held” from this year onward.

The event, which raised funds for wildlife conservation, took place every May and regularly attracted hundreds of runners.

But in a statement, organisers said that since 2020, when the world was gripped by a global pandemic, participant numbers had “dwindled” and “costs to put on an event of this kind” had risen.

Alexandra Shears, director of communications and fundraising at Durrell, said: “After nine brilliant years of the Durrell Challenge, we’ve made the tough decision to stop holding this event.

“This will allow us to put more energy and focus towards our other fundraising efforts, including the Durrell Dash, our other long-standing running event.

“Sadly, since 2020, participant numbers for the Durrell Challenge have dwindled, and with rising costs to put on an event of this kind, we felt it was the right time for the challenge to end.”

She continued: “We are extremely grateful to everyone who took part, fundraised, and donated towards our mission of saving species from extinction over the past nine years. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved along with our supporters through these fantastic events.”

The organisers have also encouraged Islanders to sign up for the Durrell Dash, a festive run which is due to take place on 1 December.

Super Bowl 58 - San Francisco 49'ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs will play the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl after each won in their respective conferences on Sunday.

The matchup features a David vs. Goliath story of quarterbacks, with 49ers rookie Brock Purdy up against two-time Super Bowl champ Patrick Mahomes on the Chiefs.

It's the Chiefs' fourth trip to the Bowl in the past five seasons, giving the defending champions a chance to be the first team to win consecutive Super Bowl championships since the New England Patriots did it almost two decades ago. The Chiefs have won three Super Bowls.

The 49ers have five Super Bowl wins, but haven't won since 1995. It was the Chiefs who stopped them from their last chance at the trophy in 2020.

The 2024 Super Bowl will be held on Feb. 11 at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nev. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS.

The Chiefs held off the Baltimore Ravens 17-10 to win the AFC championship on Sunday.

Quarterback Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce kept connecting to help push the Chiefs to the lead. Last week, the dynamic duo broke the record for most post-season touchdown passes between a quarterback and receiver, reported NPR member station KCUR, which was previously held by former Patriots Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski.

But credit goes to the Chiefs' defense for holding down the lead to win the ticket to the Super Bowl.

"Since the playoffs began this month, the Chiefs have quieted doubts over whether they could shake off their regular season weaknesses," KCUR reported.

In the NFC title game, the Lions put their top-ranked offense to work, but the Niners climbed out of a 17-point deficit in their third straight conference championship game, to beat the Detroit Lions 34-31.

San Francisco quarterback Purdy has come a long way from "Mr. Irrelevant." In only his second NFL season, he'll be the first rookie QB to start in a Super Bowl. It's Mahomes' fourth Super Bowl appearance.

Eldergays: Do you remember Kimberly Bergalis? And Dr. David Acer?

A revised look at the early 1990s vilified gay dentist in Florida and the woman who claimed he deliberately transmitted the virus to her—and other patients—during a dental procedure.

Steven Reigns: When I started doing HIV testing and counseling years ago, people had to wait two weeks for the results. But in 10 years, we had the 20-minute rapid test. I had a woman come in who was very concerned about the possibility of having gotten HIV from a dental visit. I told her it was very unlikely. But after she left, I remembered Kimberly Bergalis from [the early ’90s tabloid TV shows] A Current Affair and Inside Edition. As a young gay boy in the Midwest, I watched those shows because they had gay people on them. I remember thinking, “Oh, how did she get HIV from the dentist?” Years later, I did some research online, thinking, “How did this transmission happen, and what about this dentist?”

I found very little about him. But what I did find was steeped in AIDS-phobia and homophobia. It seemed like Bergalis’ claims of immaculate infection [because she claimed she could not have gotten HIV from sex because she was a virgin] went unquestioned. And Acer was known as “the dentist who gave patients HIV.” I thought, “What if that’s not true? Or even if it is, it couldn’t have been on purpose, and can we have empathy and understanding for him?”

Bradley Cooper reminisces on his “A Star Is Born” meeting with Beyonce at her mansion

Beyoncé was the original choice to star opposite Cooper in A Star Is Born, but her getting pregnant derailed her attachment to the project.

“I went to Beyoncé’s house and Jay-Z was watching Judge Judy, I still remember. I’m not kidding. And I was freaking [out],”

“She was incredible and so was he, and we developed it for like a year together. I mean, she’s one of the greatest people of all time. Then that fell through.”

After losing Beyonce, Cooper tried getting Adele to play his leading lady but she declined, and that’s when Gaga got the part.

Tucker Carlson Releases 2-Hour Interview With Vladimir Putin

It is Putin’s first formal interview with a Western media figure since he began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

The interview ― Putin’s first formal sit-down with a Western media figure since he began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine ― stretched more than two hours. Putin spent the first 30 minutes explaining the history of Russia and Ukraine at the end of World War II before calling American efforts to further fund Ukrainian defense a “cheap provocation” by the United States.

Putin said he remained open to negotiations with Ukraine to end the conflict but claimed the U.S. was using the country as a proxy and stymying efforts to find a resolution.

“We’re willing to negotiate,” the Russian president said. “It is the Western side, and Ukraine is obviously a satellite state of the U.S. It is evident.”
