Khloé Kardashian ‘Can’t Wait to Meet Her Little Girl’ Despite Tristan Thompson Cheating Scandal

Khloé Kardashian is staying strong for her baby on the way.

The reality star is due to give birth to her first child, a daughter, with boyfriend Tristan Thompson any day now — but the joyful occasion has been tainted by accusations that the NBA athlete has been unfaithful.

Still, the scandal “changes a lot of things, but it doesn’t change everything,” a family source tells PEOPLE. “It doesn’t change that Khloé has dreamed of becoming a mom, already loves her baby so much, and that soon her dream is going to come true.”

“She can’t wait to meet her little girl, can’t wait to hold her, and so for right now, the focus is just on getting to that day as safely and healthily as possible,” the source adds.

Mom Kris Jenner, 62, flew from Los Angeles to Cleveland, Ohio (where Khloé has been nesting in the home she shares with Thompson), to be by her daughter’s side for the birth, and a source told PEOPLE on Wednesday that sister Kim Kardashian West was also en route.

But insiders indicate as soon as Khloé welcomes her child, the Kardashians will do everything in their power to bring her and the baby girl back to L.A.

“The goal is to get Khloé out of there as fast as they can without jeopardizing the safety of the baby after she’s arrived,” a source told PEOPLE. “Khloé just wants to be home.”

On Tuesday, photos and videos surfaced of Thompson, 27, allegedly getting close to an unidentified woman at an N.Y.C. lounge over the weekend. TMZ also posted footage recorded in October 2017 allegedly depicting Thompson kissing one woman while a different woman groped him at the Darna hookah lounge outside of Washington D.C.

Khloé, 33, is nine months pregnant.

“Tristan has been consistently cheating on Khloé,” a source alleged to PEOPLE. “He’s a serial cheater.”

He is in Cleveland now and was booed as he took the court Wednesday night for the Cavaliers’ home game against the New York Knicks. The Cavs lost 98-110 to but are headed into the first round of the Eastern Conference against the Indiana Pacers.

The upcoming Sonic Forces features a new mode that allows players to become a hero of the game with a custom avatar, but the development team’s approach to the character creator is more simplistic.

As previously announced by Sega, players can choose one of seven animal archetypes to customize for their Hero Character. Sonic Forces Producer Shun Nakamura said, with the help of a translator, that the creator isn’t anywhere near as complex as something like Fallout, but said players will instead get to pick from set characteristics, kind of like a doll maker.

“What the team wanted to have people do is create a regular character that exists in the world and have that character go on this great adventure with classic and modern Sonic and become a hero,” Nakamura said.

When Families Can’t Afford Their Child’s Funeral, Patricia Quinn Is There to Help

For Philadelphia funeral director Patricia Quinn, helping bereaved families bury their children is tough enough.

But finding out they can’t afford to hold a funeral for their children, let alone bury them, was heartbreaking.

“It’s so devastating,” says Quinn, 49, the mother of a 15-year-old girl. “Most of the parents are young. They barely have insurance on themselves, let alone on their kid.”

So she decided to do something about it.

In March 2006, she founded Final Farewell (finalfarewell.org), a nonprofit that has so far paid for funerals, headstones, graves or urns for more than 500 children in Pennsylvania and across the country.

“She’s probably the single most dedicated human being I’ve ever met,” says Sylvia Urrata, a former bereavement care coordinator at the Philadelphia medical examiner’s office. “She’s never once declined to help with any child I had.”

The very first family Quinn helped was that of Eddie Lichtenhahn, the 9-year-old son of a Philadelphia police officer who died suddenly of a brain aneurysm in February 2006. She saw a flier for a ‘Beef ‘n Beer’ fundraiser for the boy’s funeral costs and knew she could help—ultimately negotiating a lower price for his headstone and then pitching in with a $ 500 donation.

“I couldn’t thank her enough,”  the child’s father, Ed, 59, tells PEOPLE. “It meant a lot to us and it always will. I’ve always said to her — whatever she needed, I’d be there for her.”

For the first couple of years Quinn had to seek out families to help through death notices in local newspapers. But after a while, she developed a network of social workers at local hospitals and the local medical examiner’s office who would contact her when they had someone in need, she says. Finances are often tight but Quinn refuses to turn anyone down.

“It’s just the right thing to do,” she says. “I cannot imagine having your child pass away.”

Diddy Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Shading Kendall And Kylie Jenner

Sean “Diddy” Combs is too pure for this world and we must protect him at all costs. 

The rapper and business mogul premiered his new documentary “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop,” which traces the legacy of his Bad Boy Records label, in Los Angeles Thursday night. The event boasted an impressive celebrity guest list, including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Madonna, and, yes, Kendall Jenner.

Diddy shared a slew of photos from the night, but one in particular caught the internet’s attention, a short video of him posing with the 21-year-old supermodel. 

“Last night @kyliejenner #cantstopwontstop #aboutlastnight,” he wrote in the caption, accidentally tagging Jenner’s sister, Kylie Jenner, instead of her. 

He quickly corrected his mistake and  apologized for the mixup in the comments after the internet was done thoroughly high-fiving and roasting him. 

“I’m human people. I make mistakes Sorry,” he wrote.

A post shared by Diddy (@diddy) on

Last month, Diddy brutally cropped the Jenner sisters out of a photo at the Met Gala, sparking the glorious hashtag #DiddyCrop. 

He can’t be stopped now, cause he’s bad boy for life.

Sworn to Secrecy! The Stranger Things Kids Can’t Even Share Their Season 2 Scripts with Family

 

The highly anticipated season 2 of Stranger Things is six months away — and sorry to break it to you, Upside Down fans, but things are going to remain shrouded in secrecy for a while.

Stars Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo are on the cover of the May issue of emmy magazine (out May 17), and PEOPLE can reveal an exclusive First Look at their interview, in which they open up about their top-secret work on the upcoming season of the cult favorite Netflix series.

Filming takes place in Atlanta at Screen Gems Studios — and while it may be sunny and hot outside, it’s dark and quiet on set, where only hair and makeup and a few key crew-members are permitted.

“My brother always asks me, ‘Gate, can you send me the script?’ ” says Matazarro, 14. “I’m like, ‘It’s a new season, and it’s a lot stricter than last year ’cause he read them last year, but this year he’s not able to ’cause we don’t want any, like, hacking interference.”

United in their shared secrets, the five costars have grown exceptionally close — and Brown, 13, who describes herself as “a real girl’s girl in pink and pearls and rings and necklaces,” has found her way to fit in with the boys by taking up whiffle ball.

In particular, she and Schnapp, 12, have grown particularly close.

“Noah comes around almost every weekend for sleepovers,” she says. “We watch really scary movies on Netflix like The Babadook and Hush.”

RELATED VIDEO: The Stranger Things Cast Reveals What it’s Really Like Working with a Demogorgon

 

In fact, watching movies was one of the ways the young actors initially prepared to take on their roles, with creators Ross and Matt Duffer assigning them a list of classics to watch, including E.T., The Goonies, Jaws and Poltergeist.

Schnapp also says his father helped school him on the mindset of the ’80s: “They were always outside,” says Schnapp. “It’s all phones and computers now.”

“You know, I kind of miss the ’80s. Even though I wasn’t alive,” he adds with a laugh.

Stranger Things season 2 hits Netflix on Oct. 31.

I Learned The Hard Way That You Can’t Take A Vacation From Grief

There are just some things you can’t take a vacation from: Grief is one of them.

In utter defiance of the advice proffered by friends and grief counselors, I have been determined to move myself and my two teenagers beyond the January death of my husband ― their dad. I’ve been especially eager to put emotional distance between us and the last year from Hell we spent as his caregivers. Because of my husband’s illness and mounting medical bills, we had not been on a vacation since forever. Which is how my son and I wound up in Washington, D.C., over spring break, trying to pretend we were unaffected by our recent loss.

The thing about grief is that it follows you. It goes where you go, even when you try to shake it off your tail. It causes you to be unfocused, forget things, not really be present in the moment. In our case, it led us to miss a flight, lose a credit card, blow up at strangers, have panic attacks in crowded places, forget valuables in the hotel, and the coup d’grace ― have no clue which airport parking lot we had left our car in. In other tell-tale signs that we packed our grief in our suitcase: We suffered claustrophobia in museums and had to leave, grew unmanageably impatient waiting in lines, overslept and missed events, had little energy to meet up with friends and pretty much never got our bearings. Was our vacation fun? No, not really. But in hindsight, it was funny. And yes, there was good that came of our trip: We recognized the toll that grief is taking on us despite our ― my ― best efforts to keep it at bay.

My greatest symptom of grieving has been an inability to focus. My days are not consumed with thoughts of my late husband. My days are not consumed with thoughts of anything. I just am, in a limbo-land where I can’t muster enough concentration to read a book, or apparently not even enough to read an airport sign or hear my name being called over the public address system announcing that the plane was about to take off.

We missed our outgoing flight because, as a good friend observed, I simply forgot why I was at the airport.

We had arrived to the gate on time. My son fell asleep in the chair next to me while I fooled around on my phone. I began texting with a friend in Philadelphia about the must-see sights of D.C. and I just never looked up from my screen. At one point, the line of people stepping around us became so annoying that we switched our seats so that the people ― in line to board the flight we were supposed to board too ― wouldn’t keep bumping me. And just like that, the plane left without us. We were there. On time. At the right gate. And grieving.

Nine hours later, we boarded the next available flight. We both had cramped center seats, but standby passengers can’t be choosy. Had I not been wedged in so tightly, I might have attempted a leap out on to the wing. The long delay plus the physical discomfort of a center seat put me squarely in the bull’s eye for a meltdown, and sure as Sherlock, I began to cry. Not ugly cry, but soft cry. The passengers on either side of me did an admirable job of giving me pretend privacy as I wept, although I think one of them assumed I had a fear of flying ― not in the Erica Jong sense ― because he put his hand over mine and assured me that we were just experiencing some temporary turbulence. I nodded in agreement, because what else is grief if not denial?

Arriving to a hotel with no one staffing the front desk at 1:15 a.m. did nothing to improve our moods. Nor did finding the night desk attendant rocking out with his headphones on in the storage area off the lobby 25 minutes later. We had called to say we’d be arriving late. Yet when I complained to the manager the next day, did I really have to go straight to nasty? I clung to righteous indignation and demanded financial recourse. I tossed around words like “incompetence,” “dangerous situation” and “customer service like this will be reported on Yelp.” I have never suffered fools graciously, but grief has armed me with a bazooka to shoot at mosquitos. Grief has cost me my understanding ― and in doing so, made me coarser.

Grief has also made me a space cadet. In my many years of marriage, I would ask my husband as we exited a restaurant whether he “got the credit card back?” The answer was always yes. The same wasn’t always true with his Tilley hat, but unlike credit cards, a Tilley can be replaced with minimal fuss.

For the first time in my life, I left my credit card at a restaurant on this trip. No alcohol was involved. I was well-rested. I just wasn’t present. My lack of focus cost me two Uber rides in traffic ― back and forth from the hotel to fetch the card. Yes, I consider myself lucky that the restaurant still had it. I profusely thanked the waiter, the manager and the bus boy who found the card where I had dropped it. But for reasons I don’t fully understand, I felt the need to blurt out to all three that I was recently widowed ― as if this was something they needed to know about me. I succeeded only in making them about as uncomfortable as a person can get when a stranger overshares. 

“You take care of yourself, ma’am,” the manager said to me, holding the door and ushering me out with his hand gently on my back. I think I hated his pity more than the fact that I left my card there. That’s grief for you.

Sadly, the vacation didn’t improve much from there. Lines were long as D.C. filled up with spring breakers, school trips and families who traveled great distances to see cherry blossoms. The crowds got to us. We couldn’t fully experience the solemnity of the U.S. Holocaust Museum with so many kids screaming, so we left. We stood in the rain for an hour to enter the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, only to be overwhelmed by the crowds inside, and so we left that too. We sniped at each other when we couldn’t agree which direction to walk to get to the White House and wound up at the Capitol instead. We carried cameras but took few photos and the ones we did take show us grimacing, not smiling.

Three days later, we were at Dulles airport for our journey home when my son realized he had left his eyeglasses back at the hotel, an hour’s drive away. I arranged to have them sent overnight so he’d have them for his much-anticipated behind-the-wheel driver’s license test (he passed!) and just swallowed hard when I heard the shipping cost. I simply ran out of the energy to be mad ― and I had lost any moral high ground by factor of the credit card left behind.

But then something wonderful happened. We both burst out laughing ― the kind of laughter that is so loud and maniacal that strangers stare. We just couldn’t stop. We listed everything that had gone awry and just cracked up. 

“Like what else bad could happen?” my son asked, gulping his words in between laugh spasms. He pointed at the TV in the airport waiting room, wanting me to read the news scroll at the bottom ― all the while laughing so hard that tears were running down his cheeks.

Delta had just canceled 3,000 flights. Thousands of travelers were having a worse vacation than ours.

“Mom, we aren’t on Delta, right?” my son asked, still laughing. 

Nope, we were not. At least on the scoreboard, we had denied grief a total shut-out. Can full recovery be far behind?

Nicole Kidman Just Can’t Stop Wearing Animal Dresses

Remember when Nicole Kidman showed up to the SAG Awards with parrots on her shoulders and we couldn’t stop chirping about her high-risk, higher-reward look?

Well, it appears the “Big Little Lies” star may have heard our praise. Or she just really, really loves animals. Either way, she wore yet another creature-adorned gown to the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas Sunday night.

The intricately beaded Alexander McQueen dress is decorated with leaves, flowers and ― if you can spot them ― a whole bunch of animals. We spy an owl, a squirrel, deer and various other little creatures we’re still trying to identify.

It’s a Where’s Waldo of nature, if you will! 

Kidman paired the wild look with a pair of stunning emerald earrings, and left her hands free enough of jewelry to clap normally this time around. 

Weird clapping be damned, this gown gets a standing ovation from us.

You Can’t Marry The Bachelor’s Nick Viall, But You Can Rent Vanessa Grimaldi’s Winning Dress

By now, if you don’t know who won The Bachelor last night, first of all, how are you even navigating the internet today let alone clicking on this article, but secondly, gird yourself for some major spoilers ahead. We’ll wait.

Ok, now that we’ve gotten rid of those Bachelor Nation fans with a day of DVR watching ahead of them, it feels safe to say, your newly-engaged winner is Vanessa Grimaldi. While finding out which lady would ultimately steal consummate runner-up Nick Viall‘s heart was a major part of the anticipation around last night’s finale, after the show’s stylist teased the dress options the girls were still choosing between, we were also heavily invested in finding out which gorgeous gown Vanessa and Raven Gates would wear. And now, not only do we know exactly what dress will go into The Bachelor history books, but you can go ahead and rent it for any potential upcoming proposals in your own life.

The gown Vanessa wore to accept Nick’s proposal was ultimately a simple, black Badgley Mischka fully sequined gown with a spaghetti strap, deep v-neckline and slight cutouts along the ribcage. A dress which also now happens to be available for your next black tie affair on Rent the Runway. That’s right, you can craft a rose-worthy ensemble of your very own at just a fraction of the full price tag, renting the dress for either four days at a super affordable $ 90, or 8 days for $ 144. And if you want to add the glittering gown to your evening wear collection for good, you can pre-order it now at Saks Fifth Avenue for $ 595.

While runner-up Raven’s dress was no less stunning, an ice-blue beaded Randi Rahm gown with a halter neckline, we really should have known Vanessa’s dress would be a guaranteed winner given that out of the last nine seasons of the show at least five winners wore black.

And although Rachel Lindsay‘s stint as next season’s Bachelorette is only just beginning production, the lawyer is already proving her season is going to seriously shake things up, ditching the show’s usual style M.O. and going for a bold jumpsuit over the traditional evening dress to meet all of her admiring suitors for the first time.

The jumpsuit in question by Jovani Fashion features a plunging neckline, split sleeves, and wide leg trousers, and is also still for sale and ready to make all of your meet-cute dreams come true. And we have a feeling, given Lindsay’s penchant for surprises so far, the latest Bachelorette has a whole lot more firsts in store for us next season.

What do you think of Vanessa’s winning dress? Would you rent it? And are you excited to see how Rachel switches things up for her season? Sound off below!

Emma Watson Can’t Help But Cringe While Watching Harry Potter Outtakes: ‘I Was Such a Loser!’

Emma Watson came to set prepared while filming Harry Potter — maybe a little too prepared.

The Beauty and the Beast actress, 26, stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday where she couldn’t help but cringe while watching an outtake clip from her early days on Harry Potter.

In the clip, Watson is seen mouthing Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint‘s lines during a take from Sorcerer’s Stone.

“This is actually quite traumatic for me,” she said as she burrowed her face in her hands. “I would ruin takes.”

She said she would learn everyone’s lines in a scene and accidentally catch herself saying their lines under her breath.

“ Chris  would be like, ‘Cut! Emma, you’re doing it again,’ ” Watson recalled. “I couldn’t help myself. I was such a loser.”

Watson said she was so was so obsessed with the Harry Potter growing up, that she inadvertently memorized nearly every line from the books.

“I really love those books,” she said. “I really wanted to do my job well and I kind of over did it.”

Twitter Can’t Believe Rihanna Invented Punk In Latest Photo Shoot

After her appearance at Harvard University this week, where she became the institution’s Humanitarian of the Year, Rihanna’s latest photo shoot went live on Paper magazine Friday. 

With a look that can properly be summed up as “bodega glam,” the shoot took place in New York in early February, and fans on social media were quick to voice support for the finished product in tones of awe.

Can you believe Rihanna invented punk? 

It was a popular sentiment

Stylist Shannon Stokes, who worked alongside Farren Fucci, said her team took inspiration from the singer’s “budding acting career” ― she’s set to appear with Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock and Anne Hathaway in the all-female “Ocean’s Eight.” The resulting imagery casts her “as a high fashion clerk in a bodega of the future.”

For those keeping track at home, Rihanna has also invented the practice of grocery shopping.

In her Harvard speech, Rihanna discussed her philosophy of charity as she accepted the honor for her work promoting healthcare and education in the Caribbean. The singer helped set up a state-of-the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine and funds a scholarship program to help Caribbean students attending U.S. schools.

“All you need to do is help one person, expecting nothing in return,” Rihanna stated. 

She just keeps giving.

Jessica Chastain Plays A Lobbyist In ‘Miss Sloane,’ But You Can’t Lobby Her To Watch ‘The Tree Of Life’

In “Miss Sloane,” Jessica Chastain plays a no-frills Washington lobbyist who’d sooner burn everyone in her path than fail. A fan of black power suits and pill-popping, Elizabeth Sloane is brash and intimidating ― the exact opposite of Chastain, whose 12-year career has lent her a reputation as one of the nice ones in Hollywood. 

Opening in limited release this weekend, “Miss Sloane” once again places Chastain in the middle of a congested Best Actress race. It would mark her third Oscar nomination, after “The Help” and “Zero Dark Thirty.” I sat down with Chastain last month to discuss the movie, women’s roles in the lobbying world, preparing to play Tammy Wynette and why she can’t watch “The Tree of Life.”

Elizabeth Sloane is like Olivia Pope from “Scandal” meets Carrie Mathieson from “Homeland.”

[Laughs] That’s a really interesting parallel to make. For me, “Sloane” is a story about addiction because she’s addicted to the win. I think Carrie is like that in “Homeland.” But also, too, it’s the example of the woman who is over-prepared, one step ahead of everyone else, which probably is the “Scandal” parallel. In our society, we sometimes have difficulty relating to women that are over-prepared and ambitious. I was really excited to explore playing a character like that.

It’s easy to determine that her urge to succeed stems from needing to work harder than her male counterparts to prove herself.

Exactly. Less than 10 percent of lobbyists in D.C. are women.

What did this role make you think of lobbyists who go against their own political interests in the name of big money?

It’s interesting because the film surrounds the gun debate, right? But actually, it could be around any issue. It could be about climate change or immigration right now because it’s an example of, “When you have a public majority that wants something, why is it so difficult to get a bill passed?”

I didn’t realize until I went to D.C. and did research on what was going on there. I had not realized that senators and congressmen, in many cases, go to three fundraisers a day. And then how can your priority be representing the people when your focus is on raising money to keep your seat in office? That means you’re being bought by whoever is giving you money. I think that is the situation we need to look at.

You’ve played a few characters with ties to political issues of the moment, particularly Maya in “Zero Dark Thirty.” Do you ever feel the need to assess what that does for you as a public figure, knowing performers are sometimes inextricably identified by their characters?

My goal is to create a discussion. I’m not here to tell people how to live their lives. I’m not here to lecture. I am nowhere near a perfect person and I don’t want to judge anyone else and I don’t want anyone to judge me. I’m very “live and let live.” But a few years ago I had this moment where I just thought, “What am I doing? How am I contributing in this world? I have the best job. I’m so lucky, I’m so grateful. But it’s like eating cake every day. I want to share the cake.” Now I’m trying to participate in projects that I’m acting in, and also the ones with my production company that I’m making but not even going to act in. What an incredible industry where we can inspire conversation.

What led you to that moment?

Well, I’ve had the moment before, but I can tell you what created action in me. I was at the Critics’ Choice Awards and I gave a speech about diversity. I’d won an award that was for a body of work instead of just one film, so I was like, “What do I talk about?” It was Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, so I thought, “I’m going to talk about diversity and the fact that we need it in the industry.” This was a few years ago, and then the next week I went to England to do some press on “A Most Violent Year,” and they said, “We loved your speech, but what are you going to do now?” And you’re like, “Oh, god, what am I going to do now? You’re right!”

It’s not enough to talk. We have to be accountable. If you are part of the industry, you’re part of the problem. If you’re part of society and there are people who are disenfranchised, you’re part of the problem because we’re all connected. I just looked at that and I said, “OK, I’m starting a production company.” I just started being active with more than just the roles I choose. I started asking what opportunities I could create for others.

Does ambition make you feel like you must always keep going, like Elizabeth?

Yeah, except I guess the difference that I don’t relate to at all in Sloane is about the kill, the win, the competition. I am the least competitive. I don’t play sports games. I like motocross and jet-skiing, but that’s when you’re by yourself. Even when we’re all together on Christmas and people say “let’s play a board game,” they make me very uncomfortable because I find that people’s feeling get hurt. I’m not like, “I won! I’m kicking your butt!” That’s not interesting to me. Even when I watch the World Series or the World Cup, I feel terrible for the team at the end that’s crying on the field. Oh god, my heart is breaking.

Another watershed for “Miss Sloane” is that you get to make a bad boy out of Jake Lacy, who plays an escort. 

Fine with me!

After “Obvious Child” and “Carol,” he was the eternal nice guy.

And “Girls.” I remember walking into that first scene, with him lying there with his shirt off, like, “Really? Are you kidding me?” My job is so funny. And he’s great in the movie. Thank God for those scenes because that’s when you really get to see her when she’s not working. It’s her only form of a relationship.

Tell me about developing Elizabeth’s look with John Madden, who also directed you in another political thriller, “The Debt.”

When I first read the script, I always assumed she’d look a certain way. I assumed she’d hardly have any makeup on and she’d be looking tired all the time. And then I went to D.C. and I met with all these lobbyists with black nail polish. I couldn’t believe what I saw and how they, working in an industry that’s all men, used their outfits as their uniform.

She can’t afford to look tired or checked out.

No, exactly. And when I came back and I was telling John about it and we did the camera test, it was so different from how we had discussed the character. It was this hair that looks like a shark’s tooth, and it’s a red that’s stronger than my natural color and eye makeup with suits was such a strong, aggressive look. I know to John it was like, “What is going on here?” But I said, “Please trust me. You just gotta trust me. I really feel like this is the way in.” And he did. 

What’s been the movie where your character most came to life after slipping on the costume?

Celia Foote [from “The Help”].

I knew that would be your answer. There’s so much in the essence of how she presents herself.

Right, and also people would relate to me differently. It changes your energy completely. I’ve never experienced this, but the entire crew ― you know, 100 people, mostly men, in films ― the way they would look at me when I was dressed as Celia Foote, and the energy that I would feel from them, and then I would go into the makeup trailer and take off the wig and take off the makeup and put on my sweats and walk out, and immediately there was this, “Huh.”

Were they more sympathetic to you as Celia?

As Celia, they were just more interested. More people were looking at me. They weren’t being mean to me when I wasn’t dressed, but you could see the power in that sexuality.

That’s interesting, considering Celia is someone who just wants to be liked by the other women in town.

Think of all of my characters. Think of Lucille from “Crimson Peak.” There’s definitely something about the way she dresses. You put it on and you go, [snaps her fingers] “OK.” The exterior is informed by what’s going on in the interior.

Celia Foote, her favorite actress is Marilyn Monroe. It says it in the book. I think someone, when she was a little girl, told her she looked like Marilyn Monroe, so she then wanted to project this. And Lucille, there’s a restraint to her. It’s almost like she’s in a straitjacket. She’s got this rage inside and this loneliness and this fear. You can see her being held back, but then at the end of the movie when she’s wearing her nightgown and there’s this freedom, she is batshit crazy. To me, it all goes hand in hand.

You’re good at playing people who have odd disconnects from others, either by choice or by an inability to see themselves for who they are. I’m picturing you unravelling in “Miss Julie.”

Yeah, it’s a long night for Miss Julie. That’s interesting. Recently someone asked me how many movies I’ve been in and I didn’t know, so I went to IMDb and I counted, just feature films in the cinema. It’s 27 films that I’ve done, which is shocking. If you think of Lucille, or Maya from “Zero Dark Thirty,” there are definitely characters who have difficulty being vulnerable with another person or connecting emotionally. But then I also have the characters that are the opposite. If you think of Celia Foote, she is just one ginormous beating heart.

She wants to connect with everyone, but she can’t quite figure out how.

But she just throws herself in. Minnie, Octavia Spencer’s character, is just like, “Girl, you need to play hard to get. You’re just throwing yourself right out there.” Or “Tree of Life,” where the character is just this angel of love. I think, for me, I want to play all different kinds of women. Or “Take Shelter.”

Oh yes, in “Take Shelter,” she’s desperate to connect with her husband.

And she’s all about love and compassion. Wait till you see “The Zookeeper’s Wife.” I love this movie so much. She has a huge heart too. She’s so loving, so gentle. She’s someone who works with animals. It’s a true story. You have to be very calm and grounded to be able to work with animals.

Have you gotten to see “Voyage of Time,” Terrence Malick’s documentary that uses footage from “The Tree of Life”?

I would be really happy to. From the very beginning, Terry had said “Voyage of Time” was supposed to come out at the same time as “Tree of Life,” so we were all prepared for that movie. I’ve been shooting in Santa Fe and I haven’t had an opportunity to see that movie, but “Tree of Life” is one of my favorite films. I haven’t been able to watch it since it came out because it’s so emotional for me. It was the high point of my life.

Because you were so young in your career?

That, and also I was playing a character who was the embodiment of love, so every day was just filled with so much joy. I was meditating on expanding my heart space and living with an open heart. Of course it affects you and how you treat other people. I loved those little boys so much, and I loved Terry so much. Watching the movie and seeing Mrs. O’Brien running through the streets with those little boys, I remember how wonderful it was. I’m heartsick for it.

You’re playing Tammy Wynette in a biopic soon. How are you preparing?

Oh, my god, I love Tammy Wynette. Well, there’s going to be some preparation in terms of music.

Are you singing?

Yeah.

Have we seen you sing before?

In “Crimson Peak,” I sing a really disturbing lullaby. But that’s not very earthy. Listen, I’m an actor who sings. I’m never going to go and open a band. I’m terrified about it. We’ll see how it goes when I go and start prep. Who knows? I may not sing. I’m leaving every option open. I read the daughter’s book, The Three of Us, which I found so interesting, and of course I’m watching a lot of videos. I’m just super excited to work with Josh Brolin. I can’t imagine anyone else playing George Jones. He’s so right for that. I don’t know if you’ve read the script, but it’s so dynamic and so exciting and sexy. They’re like the Sid and Nancy of the country scene.

This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity and length. “Miss Sloane” expands to wide release Dec. 9.

Cynthia Bailey Tells Estranged Husband Peter Thomas ‘I Just Can’t Be Married to You’ in Tearful RHOA Sneak Peek

 

An emotional Cynthia Bailey made the tough decision to begin divorce proceedings from husband Peter Thomas on the Real Housewives of Atlanta premiere. And on Sunday’s episode, the 48-year-old supermodel and her estranged husband come face to face for an emotional meeting.

In an exclusive sneak peek at the episode, Thomas tells Bailey that a hospital visit recently made him realize that she could no longer be his emergency contact. It’s a revelation that brings Bailey to tears.

“Just because we’re going through a divorce  mean I don’t care what happens to you,” she tells her ex, 56. “You’ve been my friend for eight years. You’ve been that person that I call.”

Like she had revealed to her lawyer previously, Bailey tells Thomas she wants their marriage to end peacefully.

“People say when you get divorced you can’t be friends and it’s going to be all this nasty stuff, like we’re gonna hate each other. And I don’t hate you. I don’t want to hate you,” she says. “I still want to be friends with you.”

Bailey even mentions her 17-year-old daughter Noelle Robinson, telling Thomas, “ still want you to have a relationship with Noelle — she’s know you since you were 8 years old. You’ve been like a second dad to her.”

“I love you, I respect you. I just can’t be married to you — that’s it,” she confesses.

She brings up a conversation the two had in their early days of dating. “When I first met you, we had that conversation about if we’re ever not happy, are you the kind of person to just settle to just be in something?” she said. “And you told me no.”

It’s a conversation that appears to give Thomas the motivation to move forward. “I do want to see you happy,” he tells her — before calling her lawyer, Daniel Meachum, and agreeing to sign off off on whatever he sends.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

The Summer Makeup Launches Allure Editors Can’t Wait to Try

Lazy weekends at the beach. Barbecues in the backyard. An excuse to indulge on sugary, tropical drinks at brunch without being judged: There’s a lot to get pumped about for summer. For hard-core beauty fans, however, summer also means a new crop of bright and bronzy makeup launches (and even a few updates on our favorite staples). Our editors picked out the ones they’ll be adding to their makeup bags this season.
The latest from allure.com
As you get older, acne fades and wrinkles form, but one skin concern lasts forever: blackheads. It’s like being an adult with an annoying roommate who’s always sprawled out in the middle of the living room right when you want to binge-watch Netflix. (Your living room is your nose, by the way.) We polled our editors on their go-to ways—products, tools, a mix of products and tools—to degunk their pores.

Daniel Radcliffe Can’t Stop Laughing During ‘Water War’ With Jimmy Fallon

Hopefully Harry Potter brought his gillyweed.

“Victor Frankenstein” star Daniel Radcliffe took on Jimmy Fallon in a “Water War” on Tuesday, and he just couldn’t keep it together. Radcliffe started laughing almost immediately, and once he got to dump water on Fallon, he pretty much didn’t stop. 

Radcliffe played a wizard for most of his childhood, so he’s used to doing pretty amazing things. Once he shocked people by pretending he was the receptionist at Nylon magazine, and during a previous visit on “The Tonight Show,” he expertly rapped the “Alphabet Aerobics.” But that stuff aside, seeing Harry Potter apparently get hit by a giggling charm is just as magical as anything.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.

The Annoying Kids’ Songs Parents Can’t Get Out Of Their Heads, Remixed

One unexpected consequence of raising little kids is the never-ending repetition of annoying kids’ songs that get stuck in your head and cause you to sing things like “Zooming through the sky, Little Einsteins” when you’re all alone.

In his latest “New Father Chronicles” video, dad La Guardia Cross put together a video of parents singing those irritatingly addictive songs, which have “brainwashed” them for life.  

It’s a delightful medley of lines like “This is the song that never ends,” “Doc McStuffins, Doc McStuffins” and “If you’re happy and you know it!”

Cross’ caption sums up this source of parental anguish: “These songs haunt our dreams. Help us.”

“You’re looking at me as if I can help but I seriously cannot even.”

“My shoes are made of paper and I can’t. Even.”

“Literally, look at me one more time because I seriously cannot even.”

“We’re the only two people in this bar and you choose to sit directly next to me, I cannot even.”

Hand-on-hip is the international sign of cannot even.

“This baby can’t even so I cannot be expected to.”

This lady, her monocle and her dachshunds cannot. Not today.

This sleeve is enormous and he cannot even with it.

Gertrude Stein can’t even.

“I’m trying to pretend that I can but I can’t even.”

Shhhh, half-naked angel. St. Francis can’t even.

Someone named Oswolt Krel cannot even.

Look into her eyes and feel how much she can’t even right now.

“Nothing about my expression should communicate that I can in any way, because I can’t even.”

Lol. She can’t.

Whatever is happening here they cannot, and they shouldn’t, even.

He’s done, guys. He can’t even.

8 Awkward Confessions From People Who Can’t Flirt To Save Their Lives

Sadly, we can’t all be as suave and debonair as dudes like Ryan Gosling. (If you’re like us, your flirting skills are better described as, “Michael Cera in pretty much every Michael Cera movie.”)

But hey, it helps to know you’re not alone. In the video above, BuzzFeed highlights some of the most awkward flirting confessions people have made on the secret-sharing app Whisper. 

 Our favorite: ”Met a really cute girl. She started to flirt with me and asked what my name was. My response? ‘I don’t know.'” 

 Yeah, that person definitely does not have Gosling-like game.

Michael Eisner Apparently Can’t Find Any Beautiful, Funny Women, But We Just Did

Last week at the Aspen Ideas Festival, former Disney CEO and clueless white man Michael Eisner reminded us that women aren’t usually funny because they’re too busy doing their makeup. Eisner was on stage interviewing actress Goldie Hawn about her experience as a woman in entertainment, The Atlantic reported. When Hawn mentioned that she didn’t grow up thinking she was pretty — but obviously got there, eventually — Eisner offered his own horrible theory behind our supposed dearth of picture-perfect comediennes.

“I know women who have been told they’re beautiful, they win Miss Arkansas, they don’t ever have to get attention other than with their looks,” Eisner stated. “So they don’t tell a joke. In the history of the motion-picture business, the number of beautiful, really beautiful women — a Lucille Ball — that are funny, is impossible to find.”

You know what’s also impossible to find? A smoking hot male comic who isn’t Chris Pratt. But we’re not complaining, because there’s nothing less relevant to comedy than how any one comic — male or female — looks. Mr. Eisner may be the only one who really cares.

If you’re out there, guy, we’d like to introduce you to just 32 of all the hilarious female comedians out there, and let you know we don’t give a sh-t whether they’re “really beautiful” or not. 

 

Amy Schumer

Her Comedy Central show is killing it, and her new feature film “Trainwreck” has already garnered some rave reviews. It premieres July 17.

Mindy Kaling

“The Mindy Project” may be moving off cable, but the author of “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” has a new book of personal essays due out Sept. 15

Kristen Wiig

We can’t wait for Paul Feig’s lady-centric “Ghostbusters” to hit theaters on July 22, 2016, but until then, you can catch Wiig on Netflix’s “Wet Hot American Summer,” premiering July 31.

Amy Poehler

There are too many reasons to love Amy, not least of all being her voice work as Joy in Pixar’s new “Inside Out.” (She’ll also appear on the upcoming ”Wet Hot American Summer” reboot on Netflix!)

Melissa McCarthy

We adored her as the lovable chef extraordinaire Sookie St. James in “Gilmore Girls,” and still today as the unlikely (yet badass) heroine in “Spy.”  

 

Tina Fey

If you haven’t yet watched “30 Rock,” it’s on Netflix for your binging pleasure. 

Jessica Williams 

She’s not taking over “The Daily Show” because she’s perfectly comfortable being one of our favorite-ever correspondents, thank you very much.

Ellie Kemper

“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” (created by Tina Fey) was one of the best things on Netflix in 2015. But of course, you may simply know Kemper as the innocent Erin Hannon on “The Office.”

Tracee Ellis Ross

Ross — starring as Bea on “Black-ish” — had some revealing things to say about women in entertainment in May’s round table discussion with The Hollywood Reporter.

Kate McKinnon

Get ready to see more of McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton spoofs on “Saturday Night Live” as the 2016 election season heats up. Oh, she’s also in that all-female “Ghostbusters” movie. 

Gina Rodriguez

The actress stars in “Jane the Virgin,” one of TV’s breakout comedy hits, which centers around a virgin who was artificially impregnated by mistake.

Chelsea Peretti

Oh, you don’t watch “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”? No bother, catch Peretti’s stand-up feature, “One of the Greats,” on Netflix.

 

Retta

Follow Retta on Twitter if you like both television and lols. 

Kristen Schaal

Schaal has some thoughts on Dadbods, but you might know her best as the Senior Women’s Correspondent of “The Daily Show.”

Jenny Slate

The voice of “Marcel the Shell” is also hilarious as the hopelessly self-absorbed Mona-Lisa in “Parks And Recreation.” And every weirdo she played on “The Kroll Show.”

Ilana Glazer

This list would be an utter failure without mentioning “Broad City” …

Abbi Jacobson

Which follows Ilana and Abbi on their pot-laced misadventures through New York City. It’s beautiful.

 

Elizabeth Banks

Banks has honed her comedy chops with supporting roles in a slew of TV shows and movies from “30 Rock” to “The Hunger Games” to “Pitch Perfect.”

Cecily Strong

She’s been on SNL since 2012, and did a fantastic job hosting the 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Miranda Hart

Her self-titled BBC sitcom is amazing, but so is her performance as McCarthy’s equally-unlikely sidekick in “Spy.” 

Vanessa Bayer

Another SNL cast member, we’re enjoying seeing Bayer in more silver screen roles — most recently alongside Schumer in “Trainwreck.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus

“Veep” is one of our favorites, but anyone without an HBO Go password can still catch her on “Seinfeld” reruns. (Now also on Hulu! Huzzah!)

Megan Mullally

Since “Will & Grace,” we’ve particularly enjoyed Mullally as the utterly batsh-t Tammy Two in “Parks and Recreation.”

Anna Kendrick

Equally talented at drama as she is in comedic roles, Kendrick is another lady you want to follow on Twitter

Carrie Brownstein

This “Portlandia” star is the reason we ask to see all our organic free-range chicken’s papers. She’s also got a book coming out.

Aparna Nancherla

We can only say that we hope to see a LOT more of Nancherla’s absurdist humor in the future. For now, we have these video clips on the Internet.

Iliza Shlesinger

The food-loving winner of 2008’s “Last Comic Standing” has a comedy special, “Freezing Hot,” up on Netflix. 

 

Tig Notaro

Known for a legendary 2012 set on her breast cancer diagnosis, Notaro runs a podcast, appears on “This American Life,” played Barb on “Transparent” and premiered a self-titled documentary at Sundance.

Kate Berlant

Berlant’s style has been dubbed “experimental” yet “magnetic” by The New York Times. Hear her make it weird with Pete Holmes on his podcast.

Nicole Byer

Here’s an Upright Citizens Brigade alum you can spot on MTV’s “Girl Code.” She’s also appeared in a Nestle commercial that only runs in Israel. 

Michelle Wolf

This Brooklyn girl made her first “Late Night with Seth Meyers” appearance last summer.

Megan Neuringer

Here’s another longtime UCB performer we hope to see a lot more of on the Internet. 

Did we leave your favorite off this far-from-exhaustive list? Let us know in the comments.

Incense & Cedrat Cologne by Jo Malone

2015-06-05-1433523482-3551534-2Malone.jpg

Jo Malone juxtaposes smoky incense with a luminous citrus accord to striking effect in this new release. Elegant and deeply sensual, this fragrance has an oriental air to it that won’t go unnoticed. In order to protect the Boswellia Sacra (Frankincense) tree, which has been harvested for incense for thousands of years, the brand employed a new technology called NaturePrint to capture the scent without harming the environment.

Oliver Peoples Box Set by Byredo

2015-06-05-1433528478-8607714-3Byredo.jpg

Cooler (potentially younger) dads will already know about niche fragrance house Byredo and optical enthusiasts Oliver Peoples. The two brands have collaborated in a “synesthetic” project that demonstrates the influence of color on smell.

The new Oliver Peoples box set includes a pair of limited edition specs along with a bottle of Byredo’s new eau de parfum (also named Oliver Peoples — natch). The specs are available in three different photochromic lens colors including Indigo, Champagne and Green; the bottle will match the lens color you chose. The idea here is that the color you pick out will invariably have an effect on what you smell most in the multi-faceted fragrance. Weird but true. You may pick out anything from the juniper berries and Californian Lemon in the top of the fragrance to the musks, warm sand and patchouli that are deeper in the mix. And if the sensory illusion is completely lost on you, you can always buy the fragrance separately — it smells just as good without tinted specs.

Michael B. Jordan Responds To Trolls Saying A Black Man Can’t Play Johnny Storm

Michael B. Jordan is responding to Internet trolls saying a black man can’t play Johnny Storm in the upcoming “Fantastic Four” film.

After online commenters expressed their displeasure over the fact that the actor is playing a character who was blond and blue-eyed in the comic, the “Friday Night Lights” and “Fruitvale Station” star penned an essay in Entertainment Weekly addressing the topic:

Sometimes you have to be the person who stands up and says, “I’ll be the one to shoulder all this hate. I’ll take the brunt for the next couple of generations.” I put that responsibility on myself. People are always going to see each other in terms of race, but maybe in the future we won’t talk about it as much. Maybe, if I set an example, Hollywood will start considering more people of color in other prominent roles, and maybe we can reach the people who are stuck in the mindset that “it has to be true to the comic book.” Or maybe we have to reach past them.

To the trolls on the Internet, I want to say: Get your head out of the computer. Go outside and walk around. Look at the people walking next to you. Look at your friends’ friends and who they’re interacting with. And just understand this is the world we live in. It’s okay to like it.

After the essay was published, Jordan took to Twitter to thank fans expressing their support:

“Fantastic Four” hits theaters Aug. 7. Head over to Entertainment Weekly to read Jordan’s insightful piece in full.

This Music Festival Knows It Can’t Stop People From Doing Drugs, So It’s Trying To Keep Them Safe Instead

The upcoming Lightning in a Bottle Music Festival, which starts Thursday in Bradley, California, is a drug-free event. But rather than pretend this label and any effort to enforce it will create a drug-repellant force field around the festival, organizers say they’re preparing for the inevitable: They know some drugs will find their way through security and into people’s bodies, so they’re offering a host of resources to help minimize the potential negative effects on users.

As part of this effort, Lightning in a Bottle and its coordinators at the Do Lab are partnering with two groups, DanceSafe — a health organization that focuses on harm reduction and education at music festivals and nightlife venues — and the Zendo Project — a program sponsored by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies that offers help to anyone going through a difficult experience while on psychedelic drugs.

Part of DanceSafe’s operation involves providing a judgment-free space to proactively address drug dangers before they emerge. The group believes educating people about potential problem signs associated with recreational drug use — often simple things like heat stroke, dehydration and even hyponatremia, a life-threatening condition brought on by drinking too much water — will help users seek treatment earlier rather than later. DanceSafe also offers condoms, earplugs, free water and an open line of communication to anyone who wants to talk about how they can make sure their good time doesn’t become a bad time.

Meanwhile, the Zendo Project offers what Stefanie Jones, nightlife community engagement manager for Drug Policy Alliance, a progressive nonprofit that advocates for drug policy reform, referred to as “mental health services” for people on psychedelic drugs. Anyone who may find themselves confused, upset, uncomfortable or in need of help anywhere else along their psychedelic trip can turn to one of the project’s trained therapists.

DanceSafe has also made a name for itself by offering on-site drug checking, which tells users which substances they actually have and how to use them responsibly. Jones told The Huffington Post that these services will not be available at Lightning in a Bottle due to concerns that organizers could be prosecuted under a federal law that prohibits the “maintaining of a drug-involved premise.”

Music festivals have attracted scrutiny in recent years following a spate of drug overdoses and drug-related deaths. With the growth of cheaper and ever-changing synthetic substances, the music festival drug market — where baggies of different colored powders and pills are often passed between strangers in porta-potties — is only getting harder and more risky to navigate.

Last year, a documentary filmmaker followed a group that offered drug testing services at popular festivals and found that 100 percent of the people who came to them thinking they had MDMA, also called “molly” or “ecstasy,” actually had bath salts, a term that has come to refer to any of a number of popular synthetic drugs. They also found examples of drugs being cut with powerful or dangerous adulterants that would almost certainly change a user’s predicted experience.

While these trends are frightening, they don’t mean fewer people are experimenting with drugs at festivals. This has led to some differing opinions on how to approach the problem.

In New York, the popular electronic music festival Electric Zoo rebooted in 2014, a year after two drug-related deaths made national headlines and forced the event to shut down a day early. Hoping to avoid another death or PR disaster, organizers opted for an enforcement-first approach. Here’s how Billboard described the scene:

In an effort to prevent against casualties, the festival has overcorrected and made widely known its use of high-tech cameras, drug-sniffing dogs and ramped-up security. The substance checkpoints are more thorough, requiring attendees to remove shoes, and cops — both in uniform and undercover — seemed to almost outnumber the fans.

Festival-goers were also required to watch an anti-drug PSA before attending, and organizers dispatched a group of medical students called “Zookeepers” to help with any emerging issues.

In past years, Lightning in a Bottle has also been targeted by intense drug enforcement activity. In 2013, when the event was held in Temecula, California, undercover officers arrested 58 people for drug-related offenses. Many of the suspects claimed they were coerced into selling drugs and accused officers of calling them “hippies” and “brain-dead retards.”

Organizers at Lightning in a Bottle have limited control over how law enforcement chooses to get involved with their event, but they are being more vocal than in years past about their harm-reduction policies.

While DanceSafe has been present at Lightning in a Bottle since 2013 and the Zendo Project joined last year, the festival is making a greater effort this time around to let attendees know that these services are available. They’ve built a “harm reduction” section into the festival’s official code of conduct and, according to DPA, will link to the page in a newsletter they send to attendees. The Zendo Project has also scheduled a basic training on Friday to tell attendees about its services.

After the festival ends, organizers will coordinate with Mutual Aid Response Services, a risk management consulting company, to evaluate the effectiveness of the services and the efforts to promote them, and to determine ways to better integrate these approaches into future events.

Harm reduction is one of many issues being championed by Lightning in a Bottle, which, according to its website, include encouraging people to think hard about whether they should wear a Native American headdress to the festival. To anyone coming from Coachella, the answer is no.

Jones said Lightning in a Bottle is one of the first festivals to get on board with DPA’s push to encourage groups to take more pragmatic approaches to drug use. A guide released by the group lays out the essential considerations and strategies for anyone planning a large-scale event.

And while Jones admitted there is still work to do to break the stigma surrounding drug use — including allowing for on-site drug checking so people can make sure they’re not about to eat rat poison — she praised Lightning in a Bottle for taking such an open and comprehensive stance to harm reduction.

“What they’re doing is a heroic,” Jones said. “They’re making every effort in a tough environment to keep their attendees safe.”

Fitness Loves Fashion: A New Collaboration We Can’t Wait to Shop!

athleta-derek-lam-10-crosby-collaboration

Whether or not there’s actual science to back it up, I know I’m a lot more likely to head to the gym if I’m excited to put on my workout clothes. The athletic market has been buzzing for a while now, and this morning brought news of a designer teaming up with a fitness brand for a three-season-long collaboration that’s gonna be rad. Drumroll, please…

Athleta and Derek Lam 10 Crosby are collaborating on a range that’ll first hit stores in September (collections will include fall 2015, winter 2015, and spring 2016). Pieces will incorporate the best of both brands, including the two-in-one functionality a lot of 10 Crosby’s garments have and the fabrics that make Athleta’s workout togs so fab; expect leggings, sweats, dresses, and custom sneakers that you can wear from gym to brunch, priced from $ 58 to $ 388.

I’d be excited regardless, but I’m especially jazzed right now. I just bought my first pair of Athleta leggings, and I love the fit and the fun fabric (I got stripes and sheer!).

How much attention do you pay to what you wear to the gym?

You Can’t Say That

It started with “moist.”

At first, it wasn’t so much the word itself, but the way it combined with other words to make them seem… inappropriate.

I would be talking with a cashier at Trader Joe’s and she might mention how must she enjoyed the “moistness” of the chocolate cake in my cart. And then all of a sudden, I was a 14-year-old boy in a Bart Simpson T-shirt, snickering behind my hand, uncomfortable and dirty images dancing in my head.

Hee hee, She said “moist.”

It was, needless to say, unseemly.

But really, “moist,” I realized, was just part of the longer series of words I found I was uncomfortable with.

I don’t know if it began when I had children, or when I went back to school or if I was just strange, but I soon realized I had a LIST of words I didn’t want to say. Or hear you say. Ever.

It was starting to become difficult to have conversations about certain subjects in which the offensively inoffensive words might suddenly surface. I soon realized I couldn’t talk about a friend’s new couch if she mentioned that it was “silky” or (barf) “plush,” and I had to surreptitiously swallow back some throw up that crept into my mouth.

I didn’t want to hear that a soup was “savory” or that you had been “pampered” at the salon.

Please. No.

Why?

And God forbid we discuss your health issues. I love you so much and I am the most supportive friend. Ask anyone. But THE WORDS TO DISCUSS YOUR BODY ARE GROSS. Really, really gross. I would be screaming ‘fucking stop it right now FOR THE LOVE OF GOD’ inside and yet nodding in support as you mentioned your husband’s “penile” swelling.

Speaking of swelling, can’t we figure out a synonym for “swollen”? It’s really awful. Let’s just say “larger and more reddish than normal” and call it day, son.

And please, no talk of “tissue” or “phlegm” or “examinations.” I have a weak stomach. And I have an active imagination. If you use those words, I will have images in my head of you that you do not want me to see. And they can not be unseen.

And don’t use words like “putrid” or “stench.” Don’t say “stockings” or (let me brace myself) “panties.” Let’s call them underwear. Or things you wear in areas I don’t want to think about you having. Better yet, let’s not even talk about them.

I’m a liberal girl. I believe in free speech and free love and free donuts. Lots of donuts.
Hell, I swear sometimes. You can express yourself in any way you please, but let’s agree that you should reconsider any word that makes me think of you naked, in the bathroom, or “snacking” on “milky froyo.”

STOP THE INSANITY.

These are, I realize, not reasonable requests.

And that I am possibly unstable.

I’m not asking for sympathy. I am just asking that you stop using words that make me have to throw up in my mouth.

But the things is— the more I discuss my issues with other people, the more I realize we all have words we do not want to hear in conversation.

You are ready to condemn me for my list of irrational irritations, and yet you cringe every time your uncle says he retired from “Ford’s.” Where exactly do you see the “S” there, Uncle Lester? You know who you are. Don’t judge me.

To eliminate the use of the biggest offender, I would suggest you (and you know who you are) consult this handy flow chart I’ve created about whether you can use the word “Moist” in conversation.

And remember one final thing, darling readers, before you begin a conversation in which you bandy these words about, potentially creating a feeling of illness and ill-will in your friends and co-workers:

Just because you CAN does not always mean you SHOULD.

Why You Can’t Help Turning Into Your Teenage Self When You Go Home For The Holidays

There’s a joke that captures the feeling of “regression” that many adults experience when they go home to spend the holidays with their families. It goes like this: For every day you’re home with your family, you lose five years. So you should keep your trip short enough that you’ll be old enough to drive away.

Many adult children know well that returning to the nest can be even more challenging than visiting your parents in another context. You might go home for the holidays and suddenly be surprised to find yourself behaving like a 16-year-old: You fight with your mom over doing chores or going out with your friends instead of participating in family activities. Maybe you’re still criticizing your little brother and his new girlfriend — or you return to that teenage insecurity of feeling like you can never do anything right.

“It’s variable. At different stages of your life you might regress more or less,” Nadine Kaslow, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist at Emory University and editor of the Journal of Family Psychology, told The Huffington Post. “Maybe you go back to your room, which may still be more decorated like a child’s room. You return to the patterns you had when you lived there. It’s challenging, especially early on, to find your way as an adult.”

While regressing doesn’t happen for everyone, it is a fairly common occurrence. And it’s most common among 20-somethings, according to Kaslow. There’s often more flexibility and ease in the relationship once children establish themselves as adults and perhaps start their own families.

But regression can persist until late in life. As psychologist and family counselor Marie Hartwell-Walker, EdD, wrote in a PsychCentral blog, old family roles die hard.

“Never underestimate the seductive draw of what is familiar,” Hartwell-Walker wrote. “It just feels natural to snap back into our well-rehearsed part. The ‘responsible one’ volunteers for more than she really wants to do. The ‘baby’ goes back to playing the cute card in spite of herself. When with her dad, the independent woman can slip once again into the ‘princess’ role she had as a child while her brother starts to swagger a bit like his former teenage jock self.”

Regression is most common when there’s a struggle to transition the parent-child relationship into an adult-adult relationship. Having a successful adult relationship with your parents requires that you feel able to be your own person, and that you’re able to assert yourself without arguments or power struggles, said Kaslow.

For instance, if you bring home a significant other and would like to sleep in the same bed together, but your parents won’t allow that, it’s important to negotiate the situation as adults.

“It might mean you have to get a hotel room … if you want to respect the family values,” said Kaslow. “If you just disrespect what they say, then you’re like a teenager. But if you just do it because they say so and not because it’s right for you, then you’re not really being an adult either.”

Unresolved family conflicts can also make it difficult for family members to break free from old roles and break out of old habits that no longer serve them. “Those families also have a harder time switching to developing those adult relationships,” said Kaslow.

In a healthy adult relationship, information and stories about one’s life are shared equally between parents and children. The parent and adult child can engage in shared activities together, but there is also a level of freedom for alone time.

In an unhealthy relationship, the parents are often critical or unwilling to adjust old traditions to bring in new ideas and traditions. But don’t confuse parental care, affection or doting for an unhealthy inability to change old habits — your parents will always see you as their child, and may enjoy the feeling of taking care of you.

Creating an adult relationship with your parents starts with taking responsibility yourself to make compromises and respect their wishes — even if it means dishing out the cash for that hotel room.

Explosion on Broadway: You Can’t Take It With You

Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play staged like a Feydeau farce! Doors slam on a boisterous set aclutter with tchotchkes and eccentrics as fireworks go off from the basement. Where there’s smoke, there’s… No, no, not revolutionary bombs! Scott Ellis’ revival of You Can’t Take It With You at the Longacre Theater sets the stage on fire!

But chemical petards aside, family values, class, and real life values provide the drama’s substance: Penny Sycamore is the epitome of unconditional love and acceptance. Kristine Nielson, the closest person to a bobble head figure I’ve ever seen, and who wowed everyone in last season’s Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, has reserves of unconditional love for her odd brood included grandpa, a wise James Earl Jones, her husband, the pyrotechnic Mark Linn Baker, dancer daughter Essie (Annaleigh Ashford, hilarious in Kinky Boots and Showtime’s Masters of Sex) who studies classical ballet with Boris Kolenkhov (Reg Rogers). The family generosity extends to a drunken Gay Wellington (Julie Halston). Daughter Alice, the delicate fine-boned Rose Byrne in her Broadway debut, loves the boss’s son (Fran Kranz), but fears that his rather proper upscale parents (Byron Jennings and Johanna Day) may not mesh well with her unruly kin. Class matters in this Depression era romp. But what can you say to a family that comes to a home-cooked dinner in black tie?

The ensemble, including a gorgeous Elizabeth Ashley as a down-on-her-heels Russian countess, adds hilarious gravitas to this production, done old school, with two intermissions. That’s just fine because you need a pause in the non-stop laughing.

Money Can’t Buy You Love

Money isn’t everything. These days, when people start complaining about their daily misfortunes, a friend or therapist might suggest that they sit down and draw up a “gratitude list” in order to better appreciate their assets and blessings which they so often take for granted.

While many people think of gratitude lists as an outgrowth of 12-step programs or the ever-expanding genre of self-help books, precious few are aware of their link to a 1946 hit musical with music and lyrics by Irving Berlin. One of the many songs made famous by Ethel Merman was Annie Oakley’s Act II production number entitled “I Got The Sun in the Mornin’ and the Moon at Night.” Here’s a clip of Merman performing the song during the Music Theatre of Lincoln Center’s 1966 revival of Annie Get Your Gun.

The Merm put her stamp on lots of songs by such Broadway titans as Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Vincent Youmans, Cole Porter, and Jule Styne. Ironically, one of the duets which she introduced in 1939’s Du Barry Was A Lady was given a second life when it was added to the score of a 1954 television version of Cole Porter’s Anything Goes that co-starred Frank Sinatra and Bert Lahr (Merman’s original partner from the stage version of DuBarry Was A Lady).

“Friendship” returned to the musical stage in a 1962 off-Broadway revival of Anything Goes that starred Eileen Rodgers. Since then, it has become an integral part of most productions of that beloved Broadway show.

* * * * * * * * * *

To my knowledge, there was no original cast recording of Cole Porter’s score for Du Barry Was A Lady. That’s a real shame because it glows with the songwriter’s mischievous wit in his lyrics for “It Ain’t Etiquette” and “But In The Morning, No!”

I’d never come across “When Loved Beckoned” and “Katie Went to Haiti,” but “Well, Did You Evah!” was recycled for the 1955 movie musical, High Society. In 1975, the song was used by Peter Bogdanovich in At Long Last Love. In the following clip it is performed by Cybill Shepherd, Madeline Kahn, Burt Reynolds, and Duilio Del Prete.

Another gem from Du Barry Was A Lady was “Give Him The Ooh-La-La.” Although Merman never recorded the number, Carol Burnett performed it in a 1956 segment of Omnibus.

San Francisco’s 42nd Street Moon recently revived Du Barry Was A Lady with Bruce Vilanch starring as Louie Blor (the role created by Bert Lahr on Broadway). The plot revolves around a simple device: Blor is the ladies washroom attendant at a nightclub who has won the lottery. Although he’s in love with singer May Daly, she’s in love with her friend Alice Barton’s brother, Alex.

When Louie’s replacement, Charley (Jordan Sidfield), suggests that Louie can succeed at wooing May by giving Alex a Mickey Finn, Blor gets distracted and forgets which drink is intended for Alex. After passing out, he dreams that he is really France’s King Louis XV and that May is the beautiful Madame Du Barry. Complications quickly ensue.

As it turns out, Louis XV’s chances of hooking up with Madame du Barry are equally dismal. But the show allows for some delightful costume work, visual sight gags, and a great deal of mugging on Vilanch’s part.

What becomes most apparent from watching Du Barry Was A Lady onstage is that they no longer write new musicals for actors with the kind of personality and stage appeal that a great comic like Bert Lahr developed while working in vaudeville and burlesque. Nor are there any unique voices around today (like Merman’s) which might inspire a Broadway composer to write a show with one particular singer in mind for the leading role.

It’s difficult to resist the bawdy charms of a script whose minor roles include Fondue, Paingrillé, La Marquise de Gruyere and La Comtesse de Roquefort. While Vilanch delighted the audience whenever he was onstage, 42nd Street Moon’s production of Du Barry Was A Lady benefitted handsomely from Ashley Rae Little’s brassy performance as May Daly as well as Zack Thomas Wilde’s direction and choreography.

As Alex, Jack Mosbacher scored strongly with Porter’s romantic ballad, “Do I Love You?” In supporting roles, Nicole Renée Chapman doubled as Alice Barton and Alisande de Vernay while Jordan Sidfield (whose toothy smile evokes memories of Robert Morse and Tommy Steele) drew comic relief as the streetwise Charley and the goofy Dauphin who has a fetish for taking apart watches. Others in the cast included company regulars Ryan Drummond, Rudy Guerrero, and Nathaniel Rothrock.

While this may not be Porter’s strongest score, it’s great to have a chance to see a Broadway hit that has fallen into oblivion (the 1943 film starring Red Skelton and Lucille Ball with a young Zero Mostel as “Rami the Swami” is a real clunker).

Don’t try to pigeonhole Eastern Boys, a new French film written and directed by Robin Campillo that was recently screened at the 2014 San Francisco International Film Festival. On one hand, it’s the story of an intergenerational relationship between a Frenchman in his 50s and a Ukrainian refugee who speaks no French. On the other hand, it’s hardly an idealized fairy-tale of an orphaned hustler who’s down on his luck but gets a second chance in life from a sugar daddy.

What Campillo does exceeding well is balance an atmosphere of increasing tension, suspense, physical danger, and gay politics in a narrative which will have some people on the edge of their seats and others wondering if the protagonist is the most gullible fool in Paris.

The truth is that Daniel (Olivier Rabourdin) obviously has enough money in the bank to survive having his condominium looted by a band of young thugs. Or perhaps he was just waiting for a reason to change the decor in his home from middle-aged gay chic to IKEA-style austerity.

The action begins as an overhead camera follows a group of young man making their way through the crowds in and around the Gare du Nord. These “Eastern boys” are under the leadership of their charismatic Boss (Danil Vorobyev), a Russian thug who takes great pride in his athletic body. Among the man’s charges is a young Ukrainian whose working name is Marek but (as the audience subsequently learns) whose real name is Rouslan.

It doesn’t take long for Marek to capture the attention of Daniel who, after a traditional cruising pattern of hide-and-seek, tries to negotiate a hookup. When Daniel gives the young man his address and sets a time and date to get together, one can almost sense the audience inwardly groaning at the sheer stupidity of his action. It’s like offering an open invitation to the modern equivalent of Fagin’s boys from Oliver Twist.

Daniel’s doorbell rings at the appointed time, but his condo is quickly filled with the Boss’s gang, who methodically loot the place of any item that could possibly have any value. As their shocked victim stands by, numbly calculating his losses, Marek appears, looking a bit sheepish.

2014-06-15-Eastern2.jpg

Marek returns the next evening, calmly telling Daniel “You want fuck me? Is all right. I don’t mind.” His fee of 50 Euros is once again agreed upon and a quick, loveless fuck follows. Soon Marek is dropping by two or three times a week and the cost of his visits has grown substantially.

There are, of course, risks and challenges. Marek (who is quickly learning French from Daniel) can’t let his Boss know about his extracurricular activities. As the young man begins to trust Daniel (and explains how he knows that his parents are dead), the Frenchman’s concern for the boy’s safety starts to grow into a mentor-like form of supervision. Soon, Daniel is insisting that Marek/Rouslan sleep in a separate room as he methodically embarks on a process to rescue his young friend from a life of crime.

Once the Boss catches Marek attempting to break into his locker at the hotel where the gang stays, Campillo’s film takes a hair-raising turn and quickly becomes a hostage situation whose resolution is aided by the hotel’s black concierge, Chelsea (Edéa Darcque). Rouslan’s rescue, escape, and the plot’s final pivot will leave viewers shocked, scared, and surprisingly satisfied.

Why? At the end of Eastern Boys, true love triumphs over treachery and lust. Here’s the trailer:

Why Chris Pratt And Anna Faris Can’t Get It On To Marvin Gaye

Once upon a time, Chris Pratt tried to make a sexy mix tape for him and wife Anna Faris. Unfortunately, it didn’t really get either of them in the mood.

We learned this on Wednesday when the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star told BuzzFeed Brews with “CBS This Morning” that he tried to make a playlist with songs by Al Green and Marvin Gaye, “but like, three minutes into the song, we were like, ‘OK, this shit is just corny.’”

Pratt also told host Whitney Jefferson that the music didn’t work because it didn’t match his, uh, preferred lovemaking tempo.

“I’m more of a ‘Everybody Dance Now,‘” he said. “I put in some C&C Music Factory, get the job done.”

Yet another reason to love this guy. Watch the video below.
