A Daughter’s Fight for Justice for Slayings of Her Mom & Grandma That Led to Her Dad’s Arrest

When Alison Dupras learned that her mother and grandmother had been found dead in December — both fatally shot at home and left for days — the name of the killer came immediately to mind.

“I know that my father did this, I knew that as soon as I knew what had happened,” Alison tells PEOPLE. “I knew it right away. Right then and there, I knew.”

She even confronted dad Alan Dupras and implored him to turn himself in, but to no avail. “That’s all I wanted was for him to confess, either to me or to the authorities,” Alison says, “and I just knew that wasn’t going to happen.”

Alison was in regular contact with authorities during their months-long investigation and kept up public pressure for an arrest. She reportedly held a protest at the district attorney’s office in late July.

“We are gathering silently and peacefully to let (the district attorney) know that we as a community cannot accept anything other than an arrest and full trial…” she said then, according to the Fresno Bee. “I have been told the detectives are certain of who has committed this atrocity and any jury would find the suspect guilty.”

Alan, 58, never went to the police. But on Sept. 25 — nine months after the double shooting of his estranged wife, retired elementary school principal Jennifer Dupras, 55, and her 88-year-old mother, Cynthia Houk — authorities came to him.

Arrested at his home in Kingsburg, California, Alan faces charges of murder as well as possession of assault weapons, vandalism and two counts of arson.

He has pleaded not guilty and his attorney, Mark Broughton, dismissed the case as “purely circumstantial,” without eyewitnesses, a murder weapon or a confession.

Investigators, however, said they discovered enough proof to believe he was responsible.

Speaking to reporters the same day as Alan’s arrest, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims cited “technology and digital data” that helped implicate him as well as evidence “received just this month” that was “needed to confirm that he was in fact the suspect.” Mims also said there was signs the slayings were premeditated.

“We do know that he suspected there was a relationship between Jennifer and another man,” she said of Alan, “and those are the possibilities that we’re looking at as far as motive.”

A search warrant and supporting affidavit released this summer, before Alan’s arrest, further detailed out a series of allegedly incriminating discoveries in the murder investigation. For example, in December, investigators said they learned from a relative of Alan’s that he drunkenly “bragged” about setting Houk’s car on fire the month before she was killed.

He’d also researched ways to disable the computer in his truck in order to hide its location while driving, the affidavit alleges.

Two Lives Cut Short

The bodies of Jennifer and her mother were found in Houk’s Fresno home on Dec. 11, two days after both had been shot. The homicides — unusual for the area — came just as Jennifer seemed to be getting everything in her life in order.

Having recently retired from a 26-year career in education, she moved in with her mom and filed for divorce from Alan, ending a troubled 26-year marriage.

“She told me she was the happiest she had ever been,” Jennifer’s friend Kelly Rosales tells PEOPLE. “You could see it. I ran into her at a restaurant one night and she had the biggest smile. She was just light. She was just airy.”

Jennifer had even recently started dating again.

“She found someone who was really sweet to her,” her daughter says. “I’m not surprised, because she’s so perfect.”

Alan, says Alison, had “turned into this person with no hobbies and no interests and no life of his own.” Alison also says he was a heavy drinker prone to aggression when intoxicated, but he had been sober for about seven years until Jennifer announced she was ending things.

Alison says that when her mom decided to leave him Alan “was like, ‘I don’t know how she can do this to me,’ very much taking the victim kind of stance. He was pretty delusional about the whole situation.”

After the slayings, Alison told police about alleged “incidents of domestic violence” that were never reported, according to the search warrant affidavit.

Alison tells PEOPLE the deaths of her mother and grandmother have made her even more aware of the complicated burden faced by women in abusive relationships. She urges others to be vigilant and take steps to protect themselves.

“That’s my biggest takeaway,” she says, “and my biggest message.”

Shannon Beador Spending ‘Low-Key’ Mother’s Day with Daughters Amid Contentious Divorce

Shannon Beador is keeping things causal this Mother’s Day.

The 54-year-old Real Housewives of Orange County star tells PEOPLE she’s spending the big day with her daughters, Sophie, 16, and twins Stella and Adeline, 13.

“This year, I’ll be a doing a low-key Mother’s day at home with my three daughters,” the reality star says. “Anytime I get to have time with my girls is quality time.” 

Want to keep up on the latest from PEOPLE? Sign up for our daily newsletter to get our best stories of the day delivered straight to your inbox.

It’s been a tough few months for Beador, who split from David Beador in September after 17 years of marriage.

The two have had a contentious divorce so far, with a source telling PEOPLE that David “spewed profanities” at Shannon back in March after she was awarded joint legal and physical custody of their three daughters as well as $ 22,500 per month for temporary non-taxable child and spousal support in their temporary settlement.

Weeks later, body-shaming texts David allegedly sent Shannon were exposed. He was accused of telling her, “You f—ing disgust me. F— you. What do you have to do? Eat? Because you can’t get off your fat ass.”

RELATED VIDEO: RHOC‘s Shannon Beador Reveals She Lost 15 Pounds and Has 25 Pounds to Go

David had no comment on his alleged courtroom behavior and texts, but Shannon told PEOPLE in a statement that she’s focused on moving forward.

“As David and I continue our divorce proceedings, I’m doing everything I can to move things efficiently along so that our three children are not subjected to unnecessary stress during an already difficult time,” she said. “I want to be as fair as possible. I remain focused on a clean resolution and have no interest in engaging in a war of words.”

Last month, Shannon debuted a new line of cooked, ready-to-eat meals on QVC called Real for Real Cuisine — a venture she credited in part to her split. “As a single mom, a lot of my friends say they go through this every night. We say, ‘Oh, if there was just an easy, healthy option for us to eat for dinner tonight,’ ” she told PEOPLE.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Her Twin Daughters Hit the Red Carpet — See the Adorable Photos

Sweeties in the city!

On Thursday, Sarah Jessica Parker brought two special guests with her to the New York City Ballet’s Spring Gala: 8-year-old twin daughters Tabitha and Marion!

The mother-daughter trio looked close as can be as they walked the red carpet, holding hands while posing for photographers.

Parker, 53, wore a cream-colored knee-length dress with sheer sleeves and a Peter Pan-collar, and pulled her long blonde locks up in a ballet-inspired bun. She paired the look with silver sparkly pumps.

Her twins each had their own floral dresses — one in white and the other in blue. They coordinated with matching bags, rose patterned shoes and headbands that held back their hair.

Parker’s husband Matthew Broderick and the couple’s 15-year-old son James Wilkie skipped the soiree, making the evening a girls’ night out.

Prior to the event, Parker shared photos of the gals getting ready on Instagram — zooming in on their hair and shoes.

“Special night @nycballet and my wee dates are getting ready,” she wrote. “Shoes moving toward @nycballet Spring gala. With my gals.”

Guests began the event sipping Ruinart champagne at a cocktail reception before sitting for a program that included two world premieres. An elegant seated supper ball followed.

Parker and Broderick both served on the NYCB’s  2018 Spring Gala Honorary Committee, which helped orchestrate the elegant fundraising event. Other celebrities on the panel included Annaleigh Ashford, Laura Benanti, Kristin Chenoweth, Sutton Foster, Victor Garber, Jake Gyllenhaal, Patti LuPone, Shirley MacLaine, Audra McDonald, Mandy Moore, Chita Rivera, Stephen Sondheim, Barbra Streisand, and Parker’s former Sex and the City costar Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Did Kris Jenner Reveal Kylie’s Daughter’s Name the Day After She Was Born?

Kris Jenner may have dropped a big clue about the name of her newest grandchild.

On Friday — the day after Kylie Jenner‘s baby girl made her debut in the world — the Keeping Up with the Kardashians matriarch, 62, shared a photo of her youngest daughter’s new seasonal beauty product.

“So cute! One of my favorite @kyliecosmetics shades!! Posie K is launching as a limited edition trio set to celebrate the second anniversary! Feb 5 on KylieCosmetics.com,” she captioned the pink-infused photograph.

At first glance, one may think it’s a sweet coincidence that Kylie, 20, gave birth to a baby girl near Valentine’s Day, and that the pink hues surrounding the holiday coincidentally fit.

RELATED VIDEO: Pregnant Kylie Jenner Has a Baby Name Picked Out for Her Daughter

For more coverage, follow our babies magazine on Flipboard.

But upon closer inspection, there is the possibility of the new addition‘s name. “Posie” could be short for Mariposa — a word used often as a name that is Spanish for “butterfly” — while K could point to either a middle initial or be a nod to Kylie’s Kardashian sisters.

Kylie is notably a fan of butterflies, wearing a sparkly pink diamond butterfly ring for a November photo shoot and getting matching ankle butterfly tattoos with boyfriend Travis Scott. One of the 25-year-old rapper’s most popular tracks, “Butterfly Effect,” also references the insect.

Scott also gave Kylie some butterfly-themed bling for her birthday in August: a gold choker-style necklace featuring five diamond-covered butterflies, as well as two mega-carat diamonds on either side of a large blue butterfly.

Kylie announced her first child’s birth with a social-media post and accompanying video montage Sunday, writing on Instagram, “I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world.”

She added, “I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how. There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned. I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.”

And hints aside, it’s likely that if Kylie reveals her daughter’s name, she will do so on her own terms. “She has a baby name ,” a source told PEOPLE ahead of the birth, adding, “She is not selling baby pictures.”

Reese Witherspoon and Steve Harvey Bring Daughters to Paris Ahead of Famed Debutante Ball

Reese Witherspoon and Steve Harvey brought their respective daughters, Ava Phillippe and Lori Harvey, to Paris this week for a traditional “coming out” prior to officially presenting them in society at Saturday’s 25th annual Bal des Debutantes.

Leading up to the “Le Bal” debutante presentation at the Peninsula Hotel, both families celebrated Thanksgiving in Paris — going shopping, visiting museums and taking in the local sights in the City of Light.

Witherspoon, 41, and Phillippe, 18, once again looked like twins when they were photographed wearing identical matching mother/daughter black outfits while catching a mix of Paris’ haute couture and boutique shopping (with stops at Chanel, A.P.C. and Gucci). Being in Paris, they also made an Eiffel Tower visit (natch).

On Thanksgiving Day, Phillippe accompanied Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth to the Centre Pompidou before taking a walk through the Tuilieries Garden, posting a photo of 5-year old brother Tennessee on a carousel.

On Friday, the mother/daughter duo attended the Bal des Debutantes’ traditional “day before” breakfast and run-through, with the teen trying her designer gown (she’ll wear Giambatttista Valli reportedly) while Lori, 20, practiced wearing a creation from Elie Saab — telling Madame Figaro, her nightmare “was probably falling.”

“My dress is very long, so I did a couple of try-ons this morning just to see that I didn’t get caught in the fabric,” she said.

After a few trials, Lori expressed confidence in her dress and had begun looking forward to Friday evening’s two-hour waltz rehearsal with her brother Wynton, 20, who’ll serve as her escort.

The dance instruction was also attended by Ava and her escort, Padmanabh Singh, the 19-year old Maharajah of Jaipur.

A polo playing acquaintance of Prince William, Singh’s dashing presence at Le Bal has attracted considerable press attention in Paris. Known to friends as “Pacho,” he’s a member of India’s national polo team — who told journalists he’d only asked friends show him the steps for the waltz (the ball’s traditional opening dance) in just the past few weeks. Besides Ava, he has a ready-made dance partner in his sister the Princess Gauravi Kumari of Jaipur, who is also making her debut this season.

RELATED VIDEO: Reese Witherspoon’s Daughter Ava Phillippe to Make Official Entrance into Society at Famed Debutante Ball in Paris

Inspired by the traditional “coming out” parties of centuries past, the annual white-tie and tails event has been held in Paris since 1992. Previous debutantes have included the daughters of Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood and Bruce Willis. Last year’s class included Ella Beatty, the daughter of Annette Bening and Warren Beatty.

Others making their debut this year include British model Stella Tennant’s daughter Cecily Lasnet, 17, (wearing Chanel) and Belgium’s Princess Natasha d’Arenberg, 20, who’ll dress in Belgian designer Frederic Luca Landi. Americans represent a third of this year’s 20 selected debutantes. Among them Lily Webster 17, (wearing Alexis Mabille) of Spartanburg, South Carolina; Charlotte Bell, 17, of New York City and Los Angeles, Jeanne Malle 16, (wearing Viviane Westwood) of New York City, and Laila Blavatnik 18, of London and New York City.

All Grown Up! Angelina Jolie Walks Hand-in-Hand with Older Daughters Shiloh and Zahara on the Red Carpet

Angelina Jolie hit the red carpet Friday night with two special ladies by her side: daughters Shiloh Jolie-Pitt and Zahara Jolie-Pitt.

The mother-daughter trio looked close as can be as they smiled and posed for photographers at the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres where The Breadwinner, the upcoming animated film about a headstrong young girl in Afghanistan who disguises herself as a boy in order to provide for her family, was having its Los Angeles premiere. (Jolie served as a producer on the film.)

Jolie, 42, wore a white Ulyana Sergeenko demi-couture crêpe dress with three-quarter length sleeves. The Oscar winner accessorized the look with a diamond ribbon brooch and cream pumps.

Shiloh, 11, wore an all-black ensemble  — which included a long-sleeve button-down collared shirt, vest, and slacks. The short-haired pre-teen carried a black backpack on her shoulders, and wore a two necklaces over her shirt.

Zahara also wore an all-black outfit. Her look was a flowing sheer asymmetrical gown which she wore over a black mini slip dress. The 12-year-old paired the frock with ankle-length lace-up boots.

Much has changed over the last year in Jolie’s life, but her dedication to her children has remained constant. After filing for divorce from Brad Pitt on Sept. 19, 2016, Jolie retreated from the spotlight to focus on her family as they worked to heal from the traumatic split.

“I have had my ups and downs. I guess I am a little bit stronger,” the actress, director and philanthropist told PEOPLE in September. “We all have our difficult times, but as a mother you also have a responsibility first and foremost towards the kids. They are going through their formative years and everything else comes second to that.”

RELATED VIDEO: Angelina Jolie Opens Up to PEOPLE About Her ‘Difficult’ Year: ‘I Am a Little Bit Stronger’

And while Jolie plans on taking on more acting roles in the future, including Maleficent 2, she said her priority remains her children (aside from Zahara and Shiloh, Jolie is also mother to Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Vivienne and Knox, 9).

“Everything will be around the children,” she said. “I haven’t worked for over a year now because they needed me home. Everything was just stopped. I’m really sitting and talking with them because everything affects them. Every location, every type of project, I’m going to have to adjust it to however much they can handle.”

The Breadwinner hits theaters Nov. 17.

Kellyanne Conway: Why I Told My Daughters It Was Okay to Support Hillary Clinton

Kellyanne Conway’s interview is part of TIME Firsts, a multimedia project featuring 46 groundbreaking women. Watch the rest of the videos at Time.com/Firsts. Buy the book at the TIME Shop.

2016 was a year of firsts for women in politics. Though she ultimately suffered a crushing loss to Donald TrumpHillary Clinton will nonetheless go down in history as the first female presidential nominee for a major party. On the other side of the aisle, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway earned her place as the first woman to run a winning presidential bid.

Though they fought on opposite sides in the election, Conway tells TIME now that she has great respect for Clinton’s presidential campaign — and that she shared that sentiment with her three elementary-school-aged daughters when she explained why she wasn’t supporting the history-making Democratic nominee.

“In explaining how I feel about one thing that Donald Trump said or did to my daughters, I would be remiss in not revealing the full conversation, which is also why Mommy, who’s a woman, did not support the first female presidential candidate for a major party,” Trump’s campaign manager turned White House counselor said in an interview for TIME’s new Firsts video series profiling groundbreaking women.

“I would tell them that I respect very much that Secretary Clinton was running for president, and it showed that in this country, anybody can do anything if they set their mind to it,” recalled Conway, who has four young children — three daughters and a son — with her husband, New York lawyer George T. Conway III. “At the same time, I tried to explain to them that you could be excited for someone with whom you disagree, and share in that moment in history as a proud American.”

RELATED VIDEO: Exclusive: Natasha Stoynoff Speaks Out: ‘I Don’t Want Women to Feel Afraid’

In the interview, Conway also discussed how she first made a name for herself as a Republican pollster — despite what she described as “an immediate source of curiosity” about her gender from many members of the GOP.

“In Republican politics, particularly 20 some years ago, there were few women. There were few women consultants, there were few women candidates, there were certainly few women congressmen and office-holders,” she said. “I’d walk into the RNC and I’d walk into other Republican political situations, which I have described as walking into the men’s locker room at the Elks Club holding a bachelor party.

“My comfort level came in learning how to think like a man and to behave like a lady,” Conway added.

Her strategy seems to have worked with Trump.

“I’m so pleased that I have his ear and his trust as campaign manager,” she said, “and now as I take on this role as counselor to the president — the highest ranking non-relative female in his White House.”

Grieving Dad Sobs After Hearing His Late Daughter’s Heartbeat in Organ Recipient: ‘It Works’

Bill Conner is honoring his late daughter Abigail with a 2,000-mile cross-country bike ride.

Abigail, 20, and her brother wwere found “unconscious, face down in chest deep water” in a resort pool in Cancun over winter break. Conner’s son survived, but sadly, Abigail didn’t make it.

“The loss of my daughter’s life is obviously beyond tragic, however, it has allowed four males from the ages of 20-60 to live because Abigail was an organ donor. Abigail’s eyes and tissues were also used, which means even more people are living better lives with her donations,” Conner wrote on a GoFundMe page.

Determined to honor Abigail and bring awareness to the impact of organ donation (and help him deal with his own grief), Conner is on a 2,000-mile bike read from his hometown of Madison, Wisconsin, to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Along the way, he stopped to meet with his daughter’s heart recipient, a 21-year-old Louisiana man who had a heart attack and desperately needed a transplant to survive.

In an emotional video posted to Donate Life Louisiana’s Facebook page, Conner is seen meeting Loumonth Jack Jr. for the first time.

The father, wearing his biking gear, hugs Jack tightly before listening to Abigail’s heart on a stethoscope. With tears in his eyes, he holds Jack and says, “Well, it’s working.”

Conner has raised over $ 20,000 for Donate Life America, with some funds used for his bike trip.

“Helping people and coming to their aid in a time of need, knowing that your child, spouse, family or your friends have allowed someone else to live due to their generosity will be a comforting moment in the midst of your own tragedy,” writes Conner on his GoFundMe page.

Christie Brinkley Lights Up Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue Party in Red Jumpsuit, Thanks Her Daughters for Sharing a ‘Body Positive Message’

There’s a reason we’re all still so obsessed with a particular generation of  iconic ‘80s/’90s supermodels. While they were obviously the definition of high-fashion glamour during their runway heyday, as the years have gone on, they’ve each demonstrated that while they were undeniably gorgeous then, they truly only get better with age. In case Naomi Campbell’s recent reminder that she can still wear lingerie better than any twenty-something, to say nothing of Kate Moss’ evergreen career and popularity, wasn’t proof enough, Christie Brinkley made her return to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition this year, this time with her two daughters in tow to show that age is really only a state of mind. A fact she confirmed yet again when she attended the magazine’s launch event in a form-fitting red jumpsuit on Thursday night.

After seeing the pictures in this year’s SI Swim issue featuring Brinkley reprising her role as a bikini model for the publication 36 years after scoring its coveted cover for the first time 1979, we really shouldn’t have been all that surprised that the model and her enviable physique have barely changed at all. But somehow the model’s exemption from the effects of time never fails to come as a surprise, particularly when she’s flanked by her 18 and 31-year-old daughters and fellow Sports Illustrated stars, and it becomes crystal clear just how powerful Christie’s girl-next-door genes really are.

RELATED PHOTOS: Christie Brinkley’s Daughters on Body-Shaming and Insecurity Before SIShoot: ‘I Grew Up Not Loving How I Looked’

To celebrate her return to the magazine that helped cement her decade-spanning career, Brinkley wore an appropriately attention-grabbing number, a fitted, fire engine red jumpsuit with a crewneck, bishop sleeve, and bootcut leg. She accessorized the look with a pair of silver and PVC cap-toe pumps, a small red box clutch, and a perfectly coordinated shade of red lipstick, wearing her iconic blonde bombshell hair down in loose waves. Clearly, we should all be so lucky to be an Uptown Girl.

Binkley’s daughters, Sailor Brinkley Cook and Alexa Ray Joel, celebrated their bikini-clad SI mag debut in true skin-baring style. Sailor selected a black cutout neckline ankle-grazing dress with feather trim, plus a bold red lip which coordinated with her mom’s jumpsuit. Alexa went for a silky leopard mini slip dress teamed with strappy black shoes, a draped leather jacket and black choker necklace.

“I think it’s wonderful that they’ve been so honest and shared their stories, because I know on my little Instagram I have a lot of mom’s writing to me saying, ‘Thank you to you and your daughters for this positive message,’ and I’ve been reading it to my daughters and they’re feeling so much better about themselves.’

All the Daughters By Penny Freedman (Paperback)


Overview In this explosive follow-up to This is a Dreadful Sentence, featuring Gina Gray and DCI Scott, a twelve-year-old girl is killed, pushed down the stairs at her home and beaten over the head with a golf club. Scott leads the investigation and finds himself crossing paths again with Gina, a university lecturer, linguistics expert, harassed daughter, mother and grandmother, and all-round know-all and busybody. Gina’s daughter, Ellie, was the dead girl’s teacher and when the police suspect her of involvement in the murder, Gina steps into the fray and launches her own parallel investigation. What she lacks in forensic evidence and IT wizardry she makes up for in linguistic acuteness, an extensive network of informants and sheer chutzpah. Scott is determined that she will be kept well away from the inquiry but a serious attempt on her life persuades him to work with her again and together they bring the case to a startling conclusion. Gina’s view of the world is often comic but the crime she unravels is as wicked as it is possible to be. Penny cites Susan Hill and Kate Atkinson among her inspirations. ‘I love murder mysteries,’ she says, ‘but there aren’t enough good female detectives, and those there are fail to convince as having the kinds of lives most women lead. There’s not enough multi-tasking!’ Product details Isbn-13: 9781780882772, 978-1780882772 Author: Penny Freedman Publisher: Troubador Publishing Publication date: 2012-10-01 About Wordery Wordery is one of the UK’s largest online booksellers.

Alistair Campbell‘s 6-year-old daughter, Charlotte, is deaf and recently got a cochlear implant for her right ear, the New Zealand Herald reported. But right before the 6-year-old from Taupo, New Zealand, received the device — her second — Campbell decided to get one as well in a show of solidarity. His, however, came in the form of a tattoo on his head. 

(Story continues below.) 

On Monday, the dedicated dad posted photos of himself sporting his new tattoo on social media — one of which included Charlotte alongside him with her implant for her left ear in plain view. The moving photo generated buzz across the Internet and was picked up by various media outlets.

It’s not difficult to understand why. 

“I shared the photos with my friends and family to see, I never expected this huge response,” Campbell told The Huffington Post. “I’m pleased I have helped to raise awareness for all cochlear implantees.”

Charlotte received her first implant back when she was 4 years old. The tattoo, Campbell says, is all about honoring his beloved daughter through the challenges she’s faced. 

“Charlotte’s journey has been quite a hard journey for her and for us,” the father told Stuff.co.nz. “The tattoo was a tribute — this was all about her, not me.”

The tattoo took about 45 minutes to complete, according to Buzzfeed News. As for the pain, Campbell said it was nothing he couldn’t handle. He’ll be letting his hair grow back, but is planning to shave it off, revealing the tattoo for special occasions or when his daughter requests to see it, the New Zealand Herald reported.

The dad told HuffPost that while his daughter doesn’t quite understand the tattoo as of yet, she will come to appreciate its significance as she gets older. 

Campbell’s support for his daughter doesn’t stop there.

In December, he’ll participate in a charity boxing event to raise money for Hear 4 Kidz Trust, a group that supports kids with hearing loss in Taupo.

There’s nothing matronly about Diana Ross’s mother-of-the-bride look.

At her daughter Chudney’s wedding in Maui, Hawaii on Sunday, the 71-year-old singer donned an ivory off-the-shoulder Vivienne Westwood Red Label gown that could turn heads.

2 Of B.B. King’s Daughters Think He Was Poisoned

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two B.B. King heirs who’ve been most outspoken about the blues legend’s final days are accusing King’s two closest aides of poisoning him.

Daughters Karen Williams and Patty King allege in documents provided by their lawyer to The Associated Press that King’s business manager, LaVerne Toney, and his personal assistant, Myron Johnson, killed their father.

Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg (FYOU’-den-berg) said Monday that an autopsy was performed Sunday on King’s embalmed body, and test results will take up to eight weeks.

Las Vegas police Lt. Ray Steiber confirmed that homicide detectives are investigating.

Toney and Johnson each declined to comment.

The coroner says King’s body has been returned to a mortuary, and the investigation shouldn’t delay planned memorials this week in Memphis, Tennessee, and Indianola, Mississippi.

Raising Brave Daughters

It seemed like a small miracle that my third grade daughter’s dance routine was the second act in the two-hour lineup of her school talent show. I let out a sigh of relief when I saw her name so close to the beginning, knowing that we were off the hook if (when?) our 3-year-old was unable to make it to the end of the show.

As I scanned the program, I saw that the final number was called “Brave,” and it featured nine 4th grade girls. I had a feeling it would be worthwhile for us to make it to the end of the talent show — for whatever reason, I just sensed it would be special.

Fortunately, with the assistance of an iPad on mute, several trips to the drinking fountain and a few seating adjustments, our preschooler made it through the entire show. We had moved to the very back of the auditorium to minimize any disruptions to those around us, and it was time for the final song. A line of girls wearing white T-shirts and holding large white poster board signs filed onto the stage, and the opening strains of Sara Bareilles’ “Brave” filled the room.

The first student held up her sign:

“You are amazing.”

Another sign came up:

“Stronger than you know.” I felt my eyes burning with tears.

And a third:

“More beautiful than you think.”

“Learning. Growing. Not Alone.” By now, tears were spilling down my face.

“Flawed. Whole. Scared. Brave.”

As the messages kept coming, the audience cheered on the girls, and Sara Bareilles’ beautiful words poured from the speakers. It was overwhelming, moving and powerful.

The very first girl to hold up her sign accidentally had it upside down. When she realized it and turned it around, everyone cheered her on. She got back up and kept going; it actually seemed to fit in perfectly with the message of their performance. At the end of the song, the girls donned hats and boas, picked up toy guitars and microphones, danced and did their thing. They showed all of us what it means to truly be yourself — flaws, silliness and all. I cheered and applauded with a lump in my throat, and I as returned to my seat, I saw that my friend had also been crying during the performance. Here we were, two 36-year-old women weeping at an elementary school talent show. And I suspected we weren’t the only ones.

Why was this message so powerful that it brought me to tears? As the mother of two little girls, the words of this song and the words on the girls’ signs encapsulate exactly what I hope my children are able to internalize as they navigate the world around them. I want them to believe in themselves. I want them to feel strong and proud. I want them to understand that it doesn’t matter if they look like the girls in the magazines or on TV — that they are more beautiful than they think.

The words on the signs came from an incredibly powerful poem called “You. Are. Amazing.” by Tia Sparkles Singh of Your Life, Your Way.

As we send our young daughters into the world, they are vulnerable and highly susceptible to insidious messages about what it means to be a girl in this world. You should be pretty. You should dress like all the other girls. You should be skinny. You should do whatever it takes to fit in. You should be like everybody else. When I was 10 years old, I certainly didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin, strong or brave.

Historically, girls have been socialized to be attractive, polite and good. But today’s girls are finally being given permission to transcend those roles. Of course we want them to be kind and considerate to others and to take pride in their appearance. But we also want them to be strong, to believe in themselves, to let their own unique light shine. To be brave.

When I asked how the girls got the idea for this performance, I discovered that it had actually been a few of their moms’ idea. I thought that was fantastic — it’s equally inspiring that these girls have mothers who are aware of the importance of this positive message. If we want our girls to embrace confidence, courage and self-acceptance, it’s going to have to start with us. As mothers, fathers and mentors, we have to teach our girls these values — they’re not likely to stumble on them on their own while being bombarded by other less-constructive messages from the world around them.

But the girls had their own ideas about the powerful message they had to share. Here’s what they had to say:

“It can inspire people to encourage others.”

“Spreading this message can make people more confident about themselves.”

“Help stop bullying.”

“Be yourself, not someone else.”

“I want to be liked for who I am.”

“We all have our own personalities.”

“Don’t be afraid to be yourself.”

“This message can change people’s lives and the whole world.”

This transitional age — from the tween years to the teen years — is absolutely transformative, and it is a crucial time to instill feelings of empowerment, security and a strong sense of self in our girls. What if we could really help them to believe and internalize these messages and to get that message to spread to other girls in the school, in the city and beyond? What would it take for parents, daughters and community members to join together to change the way we think about girls and women in the world? I don’t think there is any better gift we can give our daughters than to help them discover that they are powerful, valuable, and brave.

These girls threw a pebble, and it made ripples. They stood on stage in front of their entire school and shared who they are — quirky, kind, strong, beautiful, and confident. They were, in a word — brave.

Here’s What Happens When Daughters Try On Their Mom’s Wedding Gown

As a mom, seeing your daughter wearing your wedding dress can bring on a range of emotions — tears of joy, nostalgia and quite a few laughs too.

That was certainly the case for the three mothers in a BuzzFeed video posted to YouTube on Friday. One of the dresses was dated (“I just feel like like this looks like the nightgown of a queen in the 1700s” one daughter said), one was ill-fitting (“I could just…bust the whole thing open,” another said). But the last one, a strapless ball gown, was the best fit of the bunch.

“It was very emotional for me just to think that she might try on my dress,” the teary-eyed mom said. “It was just nerve-racking to think of this step in her life.”
