Danielle Harris Opens Up About Her ‘Near Death’ Experience During Delivery of Son Jagger

Almost a month after welcoming her baby boy, Danielle Harris is opening up about her difficult delivery.

Before sharing the story of her “traumatic” experience, the Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead star and famed scream queen, 41, wrote a sweet tribute to her 4-week-old son Jagger Maxwell — her second child with husband David Gross.

“Introducing … Jagger Maxwell Gross Born 10/8/2018 !!!!” she wrote on Instagram over the weekend, alongside the first photo the actress has shared of her bundle of joy.

“Mommy and Daddy are so lucky to be able to add you to our family. We are a fierce 4some now and can’t wait to watch you grow and live this life as our baby boy and little brother to the BEST big brother a boy could ask for!!” she continued, referring to the couple’s older son Carter Davis, 20 months.

Explaining why it took her so long to share her harrowing story — or even post a photo of her child — the mother of two wrote that she just needed a little time to herself.

“Giving birth is the most dangerous thing a woman can do in her lifetime … after my traumatic birth experience this time around, it took me a while to share a photo with the world,” Harris wrote. “Time was really needed to clear my head and bond with my baby just he and I in our own private little bubble.”

During the delivery, Harris had a “horrible eclampsia seizure on the operating table” and “blacked out,” missing the birth of her son.

“I saw moments of my life flashing before me in fast forward and I missed the birth of my baby,” she wrote. “Needless to say that was the closest to a near death experience as I’d ever come in real life.”

The Halloween franchise actress went on to share that she’s “forever grateful and blessed” to have made it out of the delivery room alive.

“Dying during childbirth was definitely not on my list of ways I thought I would leave this world and I’m glad to cross that possibility off my list,” she wrote.

“Women are warriors and I’m looking forward to being around many more years soaking up all these precious moments with my baby boys and family,” she continued. “After lots of tests I’m glad to say I have no damage to my brain and am ready to be the best mommy these boys could ask for.”

“Life is short. You never know when your number is gonna be up, so take time to enjoy what matters most,” Harris advised her followers. “Love one another and love yourself because the world wouldn’t be the same without you … ”

Patton Oswalt Recalls 2016 Emmys Win After Heartbreak of Wife’s Death: My Life Is ‘Pure Gold’ Now

What a difference two years has made for Patton Oswalt.

The comedian, 49, looked back on how his life has changed after Monday’s 2018 Emmy Awards, sharing touching side-by-side photos on Twitter.

One photo showed Oswalt after the 2016 Emmys, sitting alone with his trophy outside of an Arby’s.

Though he won his first Emmy that year — an outstanding writing for a variety special honor given to him in celebration of his Netflix special, Talking for Clapping — the star had a sullen expression on his face. The awards show followed not long after his late wife, crime writer Michelle McNamara, had died unexpectedly in her sleep in April 2016 at age 46.

Oswalt’s second photo was far more joyful. Sitting outside of the same Arby’s, he was lacking the Emmy — having lost at Monday’s show in the same category, where he was nominated for his Netflix special, Annihilation. But his wife Meredith Salenger sat beside him, locking lips with the star in the picture.

“Two years ago versus today,” Oswalt captioned the images. “No Emmy this time, but a life that’s turned pure gold thanks to @MeredthSalenger.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

RELATED: Patton Oswalt on Why He Remarried 18 Months After His Wife’s Sudden Death

Missing from the photo was Oswalt’s daughter Alice Rigney, 9 — his only child with McNamara. She was instrumental in helping Oswalt through his grief after McNamara’s passing.

“If I hadn’t had a daughter and my wife died, we wouldn’t be talking right now. I’m not saying I would be dead, but I would be a shut-in alcoholic,” he revealed in a 2017 interview with Playboy. “Everything would have shut down. I wouldn’t have been about anything. But with Alice, it was and is ‘You got to get up.’ ”

Both Alice and McNamara got a shout-out in Oswalt’s 2016 Emmy’s speech. “I want to share this with two people,” he said. “One of them is my daughter Alice, waiting at home. The other one is… waiting somewhere else, I hope.”

RELATED VIDEO: Patton Oswalt and His Daughter Introduce His New Wife to Her ‘First Ever’ Christmas Tree

Oswalt tied the knot with Salenger, 48, in November 2017, four months after their engagement. The duo had gone public with their romance that June.

“I’ve only ever felt that level of joy once before in my life, and it was so profound and perfect it felt greedy to ever wish for it again,” Oswalt told PEOPLE exclusively following the couple’s nuptials.

He added, “But I did, so now all I can do is show Meredith a level of gratitude and love that’s greater than the joy she’s brought me, and my daughter Alice. Because this is a new level of joy, and a new life, and I’ll always strive to deserve it.”

Princess Diana’s Friend Shares Rare Photo of the Royal Mid-Laugh on 21st Anniversary of Her Death

Princess Diana‘s legacy is often overshadowed by her untimely death — but her friends are remembering the happy times.

On Friday — which marks the 21st anniversary of the Paris car crash that took the lives of Diana, her romantic companion Dodi Fayed and driver Henri Paul — Rosa Monckton shared a touching tribute to her friend on Twitter. In the joyous photo, the royal looks relaxed and comfortable in a baggy sweatshirt, laughing with her eyes squeezed shut.

“Diana as I remember her,” Monckton captioned the rare image. “Not enough is written about her sense of fun and zest for life. Friend and wonderful godmother to Domenica. RIP.”

Monckton was a close friend and confidante to the late Princess of Wales — who was the godmother to Monckton’s daughter, Domenica. When Domenica was was born with Down syndrome in 1995, Diana provided the ultimate support.

“She said, ‘You just have to believe in her,’ ” the British jewelry executive, who met Diana through a mutual friend, told PEOPLE in 2016. “She said, ‘Believe in her, love her and I’ll be there every step of the way.’ She already had that vision of what Domenica could become, which I simply couldn’t see.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The princess “was a huge encouragement,” after Domenica’s birth, explained Monckton. “She came with me to appointments. She was very much by my side.”

Domenica, who is now 23, became the inspiration behind Team Domenica, a charity set up by her mother to help young adults with learning disabilities gain experience to break into the workplace.

Elizabeth Emanuel, who designed Diana’s wedding dress and remained friends with her, tells PEOPLE that even after over two decades, Diana still has an impact.

“The years have gone by so quickly. It’s still very, very sad,” Emanuel said wistfully. “She is still very much in peoples’ hearts and minds really — and that’s her legacy. After years and years people still remember her so well.”

The 36-year-old princess died in the early hours of August 31, 1997, when her car, which was being chased by paparazzi, crashed into a pillar in the Alma Tunnel.

Her bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones, was injured in the crash but survived.

There was an outpouring of mourning around the world, with flowers and tributes filling the grounds surrounding her London home, Kensington Palace. Diana’s funeral was attended by 2,000 people and watched by two billion more at home on television.

To mark the 20th anniversary of the tragedy last year, Prince WilliamKate Middleton and Prince Harry made a poignant walk through the breathtaking all-white garden created in memory of the “People’s Princess.”

William recalled that he remembered “seeing the pigeons and squirrels,” adding, “We used to come here a lot.”

Noting that he and Harry used to feed the fish in the garden’s pond, William said, “There never used to be this many in here” — before being told some of the koi carp are so old that they are the same ones from his youth.

William, Kate and Harry also met with representatives from eight charities closest to Diana’s heart, including the English National Ballet.

Death to Tennis Men’s Spring 2019

Summertime was the prevailing theme for William Watson and Vincent Oshin, the duo behind Death to Tennis. The designers, who are both British, were feeling nostalgic and a bit homesick so they looked to old beachside photographs to inform their lineup, which they said is one of their most colorful collections to date.
They leaned into the old and new, utilizing a color palette consisting of royal blue, purple, yellow, olive red and navy that brought to mind Ralph Lauren and Cross Colours from the Nineties.
These colors lent new life to core items such as graphic T-shirts, hoodies and the McCarthy jacket, which Justin Bieber popularized. They showed these signatures alongside cargo pants with minimal pockets, boxy button-up shirts, cotton parkas and shirt jackets. A long, hooded, colorblocked parka that grazed the ground was a standout.
The suit or matching set was another primary component. Models wore tracksuits, relaxed cotton suits and boxy shirts styled with slightly baggy pants. It was a nice take on tailored pieces that felt hip but not too trendy.
Death to Tennis is known for its original prints and this season it presented a camo pattern, a polo motif and a paint-splattered print.

Years After a High School Senior Was Nearly Beaten to Death, Hypnosis Helped Her ID the Suspect

For years, all Brittani Marcell knew was pain.

In September 2008, when she was a 17-year-old high school senior in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Marcell was nearly beaten to death in her home, according to the Albuquerque Journal. The attack was so vicious it left her blind in one eye and deaf in one ear.

She underwent more than a dozen surgeries in order to recover and had to re-learn how to walk and talk, the Journal reported earlier this year.

Though Marcell’s mother inadvertently walked in during part of the attack, calling 911, the assailant fled, according to the paper. Marcell had no memory of what happened to her, and authorities had few fruitful avenues to pursue.

And then, in 2016, a change. First Marcell recalled a man with whom she was acquainted while working at the mall. Then, according to the Journal, a name came to her: Justin Hansen.

Her revelations reportedly led to DNA testing that showed a drop of Hansen’s blood was at the scene of Marcell’s assault. Prosecutors said a witness reportedly further confirmed having seen Marcell speak with Hansen at the mall where she worked. He was indicted in July.

Local TV station KOB reported that in April — nearly a decade after Marcell was struck again and again by a shovel — Hansen pleaded no contest to two charges in the assault: first-degree attempted murder and aggravated burglary.

His change came days before he was set to stand trial and not long after an appeals court declined to weigh in on whether his indictment violated the statute of limitations, the Journal reported.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

Hansen faces up to 18 years in prison at his July sentencing, according to prosecutors.

Still, he maintains his innocence.

The case’s progression is traced on Friday night’s episode of ABC’s 20/20, which is exclusively previewed above, in a clip that explains how Marcell first decided to undergo hypnotherapy to aid law enforcement.

The episode features interviews with Marcell and her mother as well as investigators in the case and Hansen himself.

ABC says that Hansen, who does not have a previous criminal history, argues additional testing on the weapons at the scene in 2008 — now impossible due to a 2015 error resulting in their destruction — would have exonerated him.

But Marcell is certain of his guilt, and her family agrees.

“We knew in our hearts he did this when this came about and Brittani remembered his name, but he took responsibility today and that goes a long way, to say that ‘I did this,’ ” her sister Alicia Marcell told the Journal in April. “I think that’s where we start to have some closure and healing.”

20/20 airs Friday (10 p.m. ET) on ABC.

Pennsylvania Father Enjoys Skin-to-Skin Contact with Newborn Twins After Death of Toddler

After the tragic death of his 19-month-old daughter Victoria, Brennan Brackbill was more determined than ever to cherish special moments with his newborn twin sons.

Brennan and Lesa Brackbill, of Hershey, Pennsylvania, were devastated when Victoria died from Krabbe disease in March 2016. The couple had tried for nearly two years to have children and, after Victoria passed, were left “in a complete fog.”

“The whole thing was terrible,” Brennan tells PEOPLE. “We were taking care of a little girl for 19 months … It was weird because she just wasn’t there anymore. We wouldn’t be able to hold her anymore or talk to her.”

The couple was elated when they learned last September that Lesa was pregnant with twins. And Brennan tells PEOPLE he knew he wanted to have skin-to-skin contact with the babies the moment they were born, just as he did with Victoria.

“It was really important because that initial bond between baby and parent is good,” Brennan, 40, tells PEOPLE. “It was super important to us because of the experience we had with Tori. It just had to happen, and we made it happen.”

Isaiah and Caleb were born on April 24. Photos from just after the birth showed a shirtless Brennan holding the babies excitedly.

“It was probably one of the greatest experiences of my life,” the proud father says. “It was important for me to be there and have that first initial bonding time with my boys. It was a no-brainer, I’d do whatever I had to to make sure it happened.”

Brennan tells PEOPLE that life with the boys has been an “adventure” and although parenting twins has its “challenges,” the couple wouldn’t trade life with the boys for anything.

“It’s definitely a joy. We want what’s absolutely best for them,” he says. “We do what ever we can to make sure they’re comfortable and growing because, as we found out with Victoria, you never know what life’s gonna bring you.”

Brennan says that losing Victoria has helped the couple appreciate the twins in a profound way.

“We were blindsided by her disease. It was terrible,” he recalls. “When she was diagnosed, it was almost like the world came crashing down on us. She was perfectly happy for five months, then the disease took over. It was a death sentence for her.”

Krabbe disease is an incurable illness that attacks a child’s nervous system, according to the Mayo Clinic. Children with the illness usually do not live past the age of 2. Doctors told the Brackbills that Victoria wouldn’t make it to 13 months. She was nearly 20 months old when she died.

“We made a conscious decision to choose joy and to press on and to give the absolute best life we could until the day she passed away,” Brennan tells PEOPLE. “I think that’s why she lived as long as she did.”

Padma Lakshmi, José Andrés and More of Anthony Bourdain’s Close Friends Mourn His Death

The 61-year-old chef, TV host and author died of apparent suicide while in France Friday morning, a Strasbourg police spokesperson confirmed to PEOPLE.

Chef José Andrés mourned the loss of his friend on Twitter, writing: “I know you are on a Ferry going to somewhere amazing…” he wrote. “You still had so many places to show us, whispering to our souls the great possibilities beyond what we could see with our own eyes. You only saw beauty in all people. You will always travel with me.”

Andrés followed his tweet with a photo Bourdain posted on his own Twitter on May 30 of himself on a ferry in Hong Kong while filming a recent episode of CNN’s Parts Unknown.

On Sunday, Lefevre shared another heartfelt tribute to his friend, which featured a series of photos of the two of them together and the search to find his best memory with Tony. “There were so many moments, over the years. Never really thought about it before, but I was lucky enough to spend more than 100 days with Tony.” The chef detailed his experiences with Bourdain through work, including work on the shows The Taste and No Reservations. But ultimately, he said the best memories came from their “long talks,” learning drinking songs, meals, ping pong matches, getting matching tattoos, and chats about everything from politics to whiskey. “A minute has not gone by in the past two days when there hasn’t been a great memory rushing through my head. Tony, I want to personally thank you for all you did for so many people. Your spirit, drive and passion were infectious. You were such a brilliant mind. You changed the culinary world. I am honored to have been blessed to have you in my life. I am just sorry you could never say you won The Taste!”

Colmar, France, public prosecutor Christian de Rocquigny du Fayel told PEOPLE that Bourdain died by hanging at a luxury hotel in Kaysersberg called Le Chambard, noting “at this stage, nothing suggests the intervention of a third party.”

“It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain,” CNN said in a statement. “His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.”

If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), text “help” to the Crisis Text Line at 741-741 or go to suicidepreventionlifeline.org.

New Witnesses, New Questions in Natalie Wood’s Mysterious Death at Sea

The weekend outing was meant as a celebration of friendship.

Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood, the glamorous and youthful Hollywood couple, had invited the actor Christopher Walken to join them for an overnight sail off California’s Catalina Island on the couple’s yacht over Thanksgiving weekend 1981.

But there was tension throughout. And in the dark night of Nov. 28, Wood, 43, vanished from the boat. Her body was found floating the next morning clad only in a burgundy nightgown, blue socks and red down coat. It was the tragic realization of her oft-expressed fear of dark waters and drowning.

Authorities said at the time that her death was an accident: Officials theorized that Wood may have been trying to flee the boat on a dinghy and fallen into the water. But her death nonetheless fanned rumor and innuendo, and in 2011 authorities reopened the case.

The initial investigation 30 years earlier had revealed an alcohol-fueled night described by a fourth person on the boat, its captain, Dennis Davern. Indeed, the coroner found Wood had a “slightly intoxicated” blood-alcohol level when her body was found.

Wagner himself wrote in a 2008 memoir that he and Walken — Wood’s co-star in the film Brainstorm — had argued that night over Walken’s opinions about Wood’s career, to the point that Wagner grabbed a wine bottle, slammed and smashed it.

• For more on the new questions raised by the review of Natalie Wood’s “suspicious” 1981 deathsubscribe now to PEOPLE or pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday.

Yet the conflicts onboard — with an overheard argument so heated between Wagner and Wood that Davern feared an assault was taking place — have come into focus because of recent witness statements, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Lt. John Corina said recently.

The emergence of those witnesses “just opened up more questions,” Corina said, and those questions in turn “made us more suspicious.”

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

Wagner has long said he had no involvement in Wood’s death, and he has never been named a suspect. A sheriff’s department spokeswoman, Nicole Nishida, tells PEOPLE that the last time the office requested an interview with Wagner was late in 2012.

He refused to speak with investigators after they began to look again into the circumstances surrounding Wood’s death. His attorney has not responded to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

A source close to the Wagner family tells PEOPLE, “Robert Wagner has not been contacted by law enforcement in over five years nor has he been alerted that there has been any change in the status of the case. In addition, the so-called ‘new’ witnesses they are referring to are the same ones that they had years ago.”

But Corina says that in light of those witness statements, he wants to speak with Wagner again about Wood’s death.

“He’s a person of interest,” he says, “because he was the last person with her . . . on the back of the boat before everything went quiet.”

Man Charged in Death of Oregon Model Whose Dismembered Body Was Stuffed in Suitcases Inside BMW

Oregon authorities filed charges Wednesday against a man they allege murdered Sara Zghoul, the 28-year-old mother whose decapitated and dismembered body was found last Thursday stuffed inside two separate suitcases in the trunk of a BMW.

Jeremiah Johnston, 35, is being held without bail in the Washington County Jail on two criminal counts: murder and abuse of a corpse.

The arrest was confirmed in a press release issued late Wednesday. PEOPLE also accessed online court records that detail the charges against Johnston.

Property records obtained by PEOPLE show a listing for Johnston in a house owned by his parents close to Zghoul’s address in Aloha, Oregon.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

The remains of the print model and aspiring actress were recovered Jan. 25, from a car that was parked in a neighborhood in Aloha, Oregon.

Acting on a tip from an unnamed source, officers allegedly found a hysterical Johnston in the woods nearby, moments after he had allegedly attempted suicide.

According to investigators, Johnston cut his own throat and tried to slash his wrists as police were closing in on him.

Police have yet to discuss a possible motive for the grisly killing.

Investigators have allegedly established a link between Johnston and the BMW that was holding Zghoul’s remains, but have not said who owns the vehicle.

This week, family and friends remembered the young mother for her positive spirit and good nature.

Johnston has not entered a plea to the two charges, and has no attorney of record.

He does, however, have a record of convictions for identity theft and both gun and drug possession, online court records indicate.

• For more compelling true crime coverage, follow our Crime magazine on Flipboard.

According to court records, Johnston was sentenced in 2015 to 23 months in prison for delivery of cocaine, felon in possession of a firearm and possession of cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine.

This past August, he was arrested for cocaine possession — three months after being released from prison.

In September, he pleaded guilty to the charge and was placed on probation for 18 months. He was also allowed to enter a treatment program, court records confirm.

Anyone who may have information on this case is asked to contact Washington County Sheriff’s Office detectives at (503) 846-2700.

Mark Hamill Pays Tribute to Carrie Fisher One Year After Her Death: ‘No One’s Ever Really Gone’

Mark Hamill is remembering his late Star Wars costar one year after her death.

The actor, 66, posted a sweet tribute to Twitter early Wednesday honoring Carrie Fisher on the anniversary of her death at age 60.

“No one’s ever really gone..” the actor wrote, adding the hashtags “#AlwaysWithUs” and “#CarrieOnForever.” Hamill uploaded a picture of the two from their original Star Wars days, in addition to one of them from the latest movie The Last Jedi and a hilarious photo of Fisher drawn as a Goddess holding her beloved dog Gary with one hand and flashing her middle finger on the other.

Hamill and Fisher became close after meeting on the first Star Wars in 1977 when they were both rising stars. In PEOPLE’s new special issue Star Wars: The Ultimate Guide to The Last Jedi (on newsstands today) and an exclusive PeopleTV specialHamill opened up about Fisher’s final performance and the warmth and wit she brought to set.

“I’m selfishly mad that she’s not here to make me laugh. But I’m also grateful for all that she was able to give us while she was here. It has not been easy,” said Hamill.

RELATED VIDEO: Carrie Fisher Remembered by Her Star Wars Castmates

The onscreen siblings finally reunited in the latest movie where Fisher had several poignant moments with the whole cast, including her daughter Billie Lourd. The young actress has been appearing in more projects since making her acting debut in the 2015 Star Wars movie The Force Awakens alongside her mom.

Lourd, 25, posted a tribute to Fisher the day The Last Jedi came out earlier this month, marking Fisher’s last onscreen appearance.

Fisher was flying from London to Los Angeles on Dec. 23 last year when she went into cardiac arrest. Paramedics removed her from the flight and rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she was treated for a heart attack. She died in the hospital four days later.

Victoria Beckham, Nina Garcia and More from the Fashion World Mourn Death of Designer Azzedine Alaïa

Some of fashion’s biggest names paid tribute to Tunisian-born couturier and shoe designer Azzedine Alaïa, who died Saturday in a Paris hospital after experiencing a bad fall 10 days prior according to a French media report in Le Point. He was 77.

Dubbed “the King of Cling,” Alaïa made a name for himself for his distinctive takes on classic silhouettes, his garments often moulding the body into remarkable and eye-catching proportions.

“I don’t cut clothes for a board,” Alaïa told PEOPLE in 1982. “The body of a woman is sublime. I follow it.”

Alaïa began his career studying sculpture at the Institut Supérieur des Beaux Arts in Tunis. He entered into fashion as a dress-maker’s assistant — eventually moving to Paris in 1957 and working for Christian Dior. He would go on to work for Guy Laroche and Thierry Mugler before he broke out on his own and opened an atelier in the 1970s, dressing Hollywood stars in like Greta Garbo and Marie-Hélène de Rothschild.

 

It wasn’t until 1980 that he produced her first ready-to-wear collection, with couture leather-moulded pieces that would launch his name as a global brand. Over the years he would continue to make a name for himself for refusing to play by fashion’s rules, even eschewing the industry’s traditional seasonal collection calendars, which he retired from in 1992.

Still he was wildly popular with celebrities, including Kim Kardashian who often wore his designs. His last collection (and first since 2011) dropped in July, with Naomi Campbell making a rare catwalk appearance.

Victoria Beckham, Project Runway judge Nina Garcia, Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert, and Patrik Sandberg were just some of the names sharing memories of Alaïa on social media Saturday as news of his passing spread.

“A sad day. Rest in peace #azzedinealaia,” Beckham wrote on Twitter alongside a photo of Alaïa. “You were a true master and one of my biggest inspirations.”

“A fashion legend and true original. We will miss this creative genius,” Garcia said, sharing the same photo of Alaïa as Beckham.

Engelbert posted a series of photos of the two to Instagram. “Azzedine Rest in Peace, my N1 favorite,” she wrote in their caption. “My heart is broken, GENIUS #azzedinealaia @azzedinealaiaofficial. He is going to continue to make dresses for goddesses and Angels up in the sky now.”

Added Ines de la Fressange on Twitter of the 5-ft. 2-in. designer: “Small in size but huge in fashion. Farewell Azzedine Alaïa.”

Fashion World Mourns Death of Azzedine Alaïa

PARIS — Azzedine Alaïa, one of the most iconic couturiers of the modern era whose body-con designs defined Eighties fashion, has died in Paris of heart failure, his close friend Carla Sozzani told WWD.
The diminutive Tunisian-born designer was known for his structured, exacting tailoring and the way that he worked at his own pace.
He gained international fame in the Eighties because of the success of his evening dresses, snug knits and sculpted leathers, and he was nicknamed The King of Cling because his clothes fit like a second skin.
Alaïa counted Sozzani, founder of 10 Corso Como, and supermodel Naomi Campbell – who called him Papa – among his inner circle. Stars such as Tina Turner, Madonna, Michelle Obama, Grace Jones, Raquel Welch, Victoria Beckham, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus were among his customers.
Sozzani said Alaïa died peacefully and without suffering. The pair were out and about as recently as Nov. 7, when they attended the opening of an exhibition of Leïla Menchari’s window designs for Hermès at the Grand Palais. Alaïa had known Menchari, a fellow Tunisian, since arriving in Paris in the Fifties.

Star Trek: Shatner Thinks Nimoy ‘Cooked Up’ Spock’s Death

The death of Spock in the 1982 movie Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan is considered by many to be one of the most emotional and gripping sequences in the entire history of the long-running franchise—we placed it as our all-time favorite moment from the movies—but William Shatner has come to take a slightly different view of long-time friend Leonard Nimoy’s motivations behind the death.

In an interview with USA Today to celebrate Fantom Films’ theatrical re-airing of The Wrath of Khan on September 10 and 13—just in time for the movie’s 35th anniversary—Shatner reveals that he thinks Nimoy and producer Harve Bennett planned the whole story, from Spock’s death to his eventual resurrection, with the end goal being that as part of his return to the character, Nimoy could demand a directing deal for the sequel.

Instagram Reactions to Pierre Bergé’s Death

PARIS – Instagram was flooded with tributes and comments on Friday following the death of Pierre Bergé, Yves Saint Laurent’s former business partner, at the age of 86.
“Merci Pierre,” wrote Anthony Vaccarello, who took over as creative director of the Yves Saint Laurent brand in 2016. Bergé, who founded the house with the late couturier, was supportive of Vaccarello, in stark contrast with his criticism of predecessors such as Tom Ford and Stefano Pilati.

It’s been 20 years since The Notorious B.I.G.’s was killed in a drive-by shooting, but Sean “Diddy” Combs is still deeply affected by his friend’s death.

“That’s something that’s life-changing,” Combs, 47, tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue. “It’s a real heavy weight to wear on yourself.”

In 1993, the music mogul launched Bad Boy Records, and the duo’s careers skyrocketed after the release of Biggie Smalls‘ debut studio album Ready to Die.

Watch the full episode of Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs: Modern Mogul, Modern Dad,streaming now on People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go toPEOPLE.com/PEN, or download the app for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xumo, Chromecast, Xfinity, iOS and Android devices.

For much more on Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs’ life as a dad and his plans for the future, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

But just as Smalls (born Christopher Wallace) was gearing up for the release of his second album in early 1997, he was murdered on March 9 after leaving an industry after party with Combs, whose new film Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story (produced by Live Nation and available now on Apple Music) shares how Biggie’s death fueled the tight family at the label.

“You get guilt when you lose a friend,” says Combs, who’s a father of six. “It could’ve been you. You have to deal with that. It’s a heavy thing.”

Last month, the star hit the Billboard Music Awards stage with Wallace’s son, Christopher Jordan “C.J.” Wallace, 20, in Las Vegas to honor the late rapper and “was able to release” some of his burden.

“His son is grown up, mature, classy just a great person,” says Combs. “To see that we had a loss but it all worked out, it took some of the stress . I was able to pass the legacy to him and now he can carry it on.”

Milo Ventimiglia Talks Jack’s Death on This Is Us: ‘When the Answers Come, You’ll Be Satisfied’

This Is Us audiences don’t have all the answers — but when they do, Milo Ventimiglia believes they’ll be “satisfied.”

Since the heartbreaking season one finale aired in March, fans have been theorizing about the way in which Ventimiglia’s beloved character, Jack Pearson, passed away.

“The number one comment I get is, ‘tell me how you died,’ which stung a little bit when I would first get that question,” Ventimiglia, 39, told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle for the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview.

RELATED VIDEO: Milo Ventimiglia & Mandy Moore Talk the ‘This Is Us’ Finale: ‘There Was a Lot of Tension on Set’

The day after the finale was televised, Ventimiglia recalled a viewer asking about father of three Jack’s on-screen death, which shook the actor emotionally.

“I remember the first time it happened was the day after the finale and I was taking a meeting and I was walking across the studio lot and a guy said to me, ‘Hey man, great show. … I was a little bummed, though. Last night, we couldn’t see how you died,’ ” Ventimiglia remembered the man telling him.

At that moment, Ventimiglia “stopped and I walked over and I put my hand out and I said, ‘I’m Milo.’ He said, ‘Hey, I’m Jim.’ I said, ‘Jim, I want you to think about what you just said. You’re upset you didn’t see a man die. I’m that man. Think about that.’ ”

Watch The Jess Cagle Interview: Milo Ventimiglia, available now, on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to people.com/PEN, or download  the PEN app on your favorite mobile or connected  TV device.

While Ventimiglia understands that loyal fans want the mystery behind Jack’s death to be revealed sooner than later, he vows waiting for the answer to the burning question will be worth it.

“I get that it’s fresh because TV audiences are savvy. Especially in the world that we live in today — with social media and digital and internet — everybody wants all the information. They want it now,” he explained

“I feel like this show is getting back to that appointment television where you’re going to clock in once a week, you’re going to pay attention, and then guess what? You’re going to wait one more week, just seven days. So that information, that want to, that desire to say, ‘I want to know how Jack died,’ well, you’re just going to have to wait and be patient,” he said, and added, “Because when the answers come, you’ll be satisfied.”

This Is Us returns for season 2 this fall on NBC.

Cuba Gooding Jr. Breaks His Silence on His Father’s Death as He Returns to Work One Day Later

Cuba Gooding Jr. is staying strong.

The American Horror Story actor was spotted Friday on the Toronto set of his new film, Life in a Year, just one day after the death of his father, Cuba Gooding Sr.

Sporting a bright blue jacket, black pants, and grey sneakers, the Oscar-winner was seen with his costar, Jaden Smith, looking in good spirits as they walked and talked together.

Life in a Year follows the story of a 17-year-old boy who sets out to give his girlfriend an entire life after discovering that she is dying. Cara Delevingne will portray Smith’s girlfriend.

Also on Friday, Gooding Jr. broke his silence about his father’s death, sharing a photo of one of his father’s albums and writing simply, “Eternal.”

Gooding Sr., a popular soul singer in the 1970s, died Thursday at the age of 72. The singer was found slumped over in his silver Jaguar, which was parked on a street in Woodland Hills, CA, according to TMZ.

The fire department responded to the scene and attempted CPR, but could not resuscitate him.

 

Gooding Jr. spoke of his father during an episode of Inside the Actors Studio that aired earlier this year.

“I remember, one of my earliest memories … he would perform at Disneyland, and after his performances, they would close it off to the general public and all the performers’ kids would go on the rides as many times as they’d want,” Cuba remembered. “He would pull me up on stage with him and make me finish the song because I’d seen him perform all the time. It was a lot of feeling like, ‘I come from royalty.’”

Prince Harry Reveals How Counseling Helped Him Cope With Diana’s Death

In a surprisingly candid interview, Britain’s Prince Harry has revealed his struggles in the wake of Princess Diana’s death in 1997.

The 32-year-old prince told The Telegraph that his way of dealing with his mother’s sudden death in a car accident in Paris was to simply shut down his emotions.

“I can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but my work as well,” said Harry.

He added: “My way of dealing with it was sticking my head in the sand, refusing to ever think about my mum because why would that help? It’s only going to make you sad. It’s not going to bring her back.”

By the time he was in his 20s, Harry said he felt like he was going to explode.

“I have probably been very close to a complete breakdown on numerous occasions when all sorts of grief and sort of lies and misconceptions and everything are coming to you from every angle,” he said.

Harry spoke about his experiences as part of The Telegraph’s series of “Mad World” podcasts about how people grapple with mental health issues. The prince participated in order to battle the stigma surrounding opening up about personal problems and to encourage people to get help.

Harry and his brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have also set up the charity Heads Together to promote mental health.

Harry gained a reputation known as the wild brother, particularly after photos of his nude hijinks in a Las Vegas hotel room came to light in 2012. But now he’s involved in numerous charitable projects such as supporting the Invictus Games for wounded warriors, working to eliminate hidden land mines, encouraging HIV testing and helping to save elephants in Africa.

As for his emotional struggles, including two years of “total chaos,” Harry said he finally sought counseling at the age of 28 and started opening up about his feelings. He also said boxing lessons helped after he came very close to “punching someone.” Now, he’s in a “good place.”

Harry encouraged others to learn from his struggles.

“The experience I have had is that once you start talking about it, you realize that actually you’re part of quite a big club,” he said.

Heartbreaking Death Rocks ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Series Finale

Warning: Spoilers ahead for “The Vampire Diaries” series finale, “I Was Feeling Epic.”

The Vampire Diaries” showrunner Julie Plec told The Huffington Post that she and co-creator Kevin Williamson wanted the series finale to be both open-ended and set in stone, and after watching the episode unfurl, they accomplished just that. 

The finale, titled “I Was Feeling Epic,” was a heartbreaker, as former characters came back to say their final farewells, including Elena (Nina Dobrev), who was finally able to reunite with her one true love, Damon (Ian Somerhalder), after Bonnie figured out how to reverse the curse linking her life to Elena’s.

But the biggest, most devastating blow came when it was revealed that Stefan (Paul Wesley) made the ultimate sacrifice in order for his brother to have that epic reunion with Elena. He gave up a life with his new wife Caroline (Candice King) to give Damon, Elena, and his loved ones happiness. 

“We’ve had people die and come back to life, but there’s no coming back [now],” Wesley told HuffPost ahead of the finale. “This is the final episode, so whoever dies here is dead. I think that’s the difference.” 

The finale wrapped up many storylines, including the fate of all the couples. Although Bonnie and Enzo (Michael Malarkey), as well as Caroline and Stefan, don’t end up together, it’s known that, one day, they’ll be reunited again. Damon and Elena, however, tie the knot and live happily ever after, as humans ― eventually reuniting with their families. Bonnie travels; Matt stays in Mystic Falls; Alaric (Matthew Davis) and Caroline raise their girls; all is well. 

As for whether or not a spinoff or revival could be a possibility, Plec won’t rule it out. The show alluded to the idea that Caroline and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) could reunite, as he donated millions to the newly opened Salvatore boarding school. 

“I can’t make any promises for many reasons: One, because we don’t have a fifth season of ‘The Originals.’ Two, because while I love the world of the boarding school and all that it represents, that would be an entirely new show that I haven’t even begun to think about, but the doors were not left open unintentionally,” Plec told Entertainment Weekly

“I don’t have that plan right now,” she told HuffPost of a future “TVD” installment, “it’s just something that’s always living in the back of my brain as a future opportunity.” 

For now, we say so long, Mystic Falls. But, perhaps, we’ll see you again soon.

Michelle Obama Praised Mary Tyler Moore’s Influence Before Her Death

Former first lady Michelle Obama knows a role model when she sees one.

Months before Mary Tyler Moore died Wednesday at the age of 80, Obama talked about the influence the Emmy-winning actress had on her as a little girl.

Mary Richards, Moore’s unmarried, career-driven character on the beloved 1970s sitcom “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” showed Obama that she had choices.

She was one of the few single working women depicted on television at the time,” Obama told Variety in an August interview pointed out by Entertainment Weekly. “She wasn’t married. She wasn’t looking to get married. At no point did the series end in a happy ending with her finding a husband — which seemed to be the course you had to take as a woman. But she sort of bucked that. She worked in a newsroom, she had a tough boss and she stood up to him. She had close friends, never bemoaning the fact that she was a single. She was very proud and comfortable in that role.

“I was probably 10 or 11 when I saw that, and sort of started thinking, ‘You know what? Marriage is an option. Having a family is an option. And going to school and getting your education and building your career is another really viable option that can lead to happiness and fulfillment.”
