Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Drops ‘Dixie’ From Name, Citing ‘Changing Attitudes’

Dolly Parton‘s dinner show attractions are getting a name makeover.

Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede — which currently has performances in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and Branson, Missouri — are dropping the “Dixie” from their brand name to avoid negative connotations with the antebellum South ahead of the 2018 season. “Dixie” is a nickname for the 11 Confederate states that seceded from the country during the Civil War era.

“Our shows currently are identified by where they are located,” the country singer said in a statement through World Choice Investments, LLC, the attraction’s parent company. “Some examples are Smoky Mountain Adventures or Dixie Stampede. We also recognize that attitudes change and feel that by streamlining the names of our shows, it will remove any confusion or concerns about our shows and will help our efforts to expand into new cities.”

The show’s official website and sign on the Knoxville location have already been changed to reflect the new name, Dolly Parton’s Stampede.

An August 2017 Slate article criticized the performance as “a lily-white kitsch extravaganza that play-acts the Civil War but never once mentions slavery.” However, some say the change was a bend to political correctness.

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett told Knox News, “Well, like everybody else, I love Dolly, and I love all that she’s done for our community, which is her community, and I’m disappointed that they’re yielding to political correctness. What’s next? Are we going to change the name of Dixie cups and the Dixie sugar company? You know, I just hope they don’t change their Christmas program.”

“Don’t let the libs do this to your heritage!!! Don’t let them shame the heart of Dixie!” one wrote.

Another added, “Are y’all taking the nativity out of the show too? Screw all of you that had a part to play in changing the name and removing.”

Aaron Levant Retires From the Trade Show Business

Aaron Levant is ready for a new challenge. Levant, who founded the Agenda trade show when he was 19, is retiring from the business.
“There wasn’t an exit plan. It wasn’t something that I’ve contemplated for a long time. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for the past two or three months,” said Levant as he was arriving at the final Agenda Long Beach trade show that he will manage in California. “For me, it’s all about continuing to learn new stuff and take on new challenges, and as far as events and trade shows, I’ve learned everything that I can.”
Levant started Agenda, which is dedicated to the skate, surf and streetwear categories, in the back of a Thai restaurant in Long Beach in 2003. In 2013, Reed Exhibitions acquired the show for an undisclosed sum and Levant stayed on to help grow Agenda, oversee other shows and launch new ones.
For the past few years, Levant, who has said he believes the trade show category is dead, has transitioned Agenda from a business-to-business show to a more consumer-facing event. He introduced Agenda Festival last year, which included a two-day trade show followed by a one-day festival that was open to the

Pregnant Khloé Kardashian Shows Off ‘Special Gift’ Honoring Her Baby from BFFs Malika and Khadijah

Baby bling!

Mom-to-be Khloé Kardashian is already being showered with lots of love, only days after confirming she is pregnant and expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star took to Snapchat on Saturday night to show off a sweet present honoring the major milestone in her life from her best friends.

“Malika and Khadijah got me the most special gift,” she wrote over a photo of her ‘Mommy’ bracelet, adding a series of heart-eyed emojis.

In a second snap, Kardashian received a big bouquet of white roses that spelled out the word ‘Baby.’

Although PEOPLE confirmed the news that the couple are expecting a baby back in September, Kardashian didn’t officially announce the news until Wednesday when she shared a photo of her NBA boyfriend placing his hands over her belly.

“My greatest dream realized. We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient,” she captioned the black-and-white photo.

Continued Kardashian, “I still at times can’t believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!!”

The following day, proud mom Kris Jenner took to Instagram to share in the excitement.

“God is so good!! I am beyond excited! What a blessing!!!!!!” she wrote, reposting the same photo her daughter had posted the previous day.

Petition Demands Matt Damon’s Removal From Ocean’s 8 After Controversial Sexual Harassment Comments

Matt Damon’s recent controversial comments on Hollywood’s sexual harassment scandal has prompted a petition for his cameo to be removed from Ocean’s 8.

At the time of publication, the online petition had nearly 18,500 signatures calling for his removal.

Citing Damon’s alleged involvement in an attempt to kill a 2004 story about Harvey Weinstein’s history of sexual misconduct, the petition claims the actor’s inclusion in Ocean’s 8 would “trivialize the serious nature” of the allegations.

“Damon’s inclusion would trivialize the serious nature of the charges against sexual abusers like Weinstein — a show massive disrespect for the brave women speaking out,” read the petition.

Amid the mounting revelations of sexual harassment or abuse against Weinstein, The Wrap founder Sharon Waxman previously claimed Damon and Russell Crowe meddled in a 2004 story she was writing for the New York Times about behavior by Weinstein and the the-head of Miramax Italy, Fabrizio Lombardo. Waxman claimed Damon and Crowe called her “directly” to vouch for Lombardo. Her story was ultimately killed by the NYT.

Damon confirmed the call with Waxman to Deadline, but said Weinstein only told him that Waxman was writing a negative story about Lombardo and asked him to vouch for Lombardo professionally.

The all-female reboot, starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway Mindy Kaling and more, is “supposed to be an empowering film for women,” the petition says.

Damon “not only ignored but enabled his friend Harvey Weinstein’s inappropriate behavior,” the petition continues.

The actor has received criticism for his recent comments on the #MeToo movement. Late last week, Damon came under fire for suggesting that claims of sexual harassment should be viewed differently from allegations of sexual assault in an interview with ABC News’ “Popcorn with Peter Travers.

“There’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?” Damon said in the interview. “Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated, without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?”

The petition calls on Ocean’s 8 producers George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh to leave Damon’s cameo “on the cutting room floor.”

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.”

Al Franken Accuser Leeann Tweeden Does Not Want Him Driven From Office

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

Leeann Tweeden, the woman who spoke out Thursday to accuse Al Franken of kissing and groping her in 2006 without her consent, said Friday morning that she is not asking for the Minnesota Senator to be removed from office.

Tweeden, a TV host and sports broadcaster, sat down with ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday where she revealed to co-anchor Robin Roberts that she only came forward with her story so that other victims would be empowered to share their own experiences with sexual misconduct.

“I didn’t do this to have him step down. I think Al Franken does a lot of good things in the Senate,” Tweeden said when asked if he should resign. “You know, I think that’s for the people of Minnesota to decide. I’m not calling for him to step down. That was never my intention.

“I just wanted him to understand what he did was wrong and how he treated me and how abusers do that under the guise that it’s funny, or that ‘Oh, I can get away with it because I’m a comedian,’ Tweeden continued. “That’s never funny. When you shine a light on it, that’s the culture of it — that’s the chance we need to make.”

Though it’s been over 10 years since the alleged incident, Tweeden said she never let go of the negative feelings about it. “I stayed quiet, but I was angry,” Tweeden said on GMA, adding that she hadn’t spoken out about the alleged incident before because it was “a different time,” and that her now-husband had warned her she would face career consequences and would be “victimized.”

It wasn’t until California Rep. Jackie Speier shared her own account of sexual assault as a young congressional aide that Tweeden felt inspired to come forward.

“That happened to me … that was my sign, Tweeden said. “I think if I don’t speak up now, I’m going to forever hold that and keep it with me forever. That was my moment to speak up.”

She did so — telling her story in a blog post Thursday in which she claimed the Minnesota Democrat touched her breasts as she was sleeping while the two were on a USO Tour to entertain troops in December 2006.

“I’ve decided it’s time to tell my story. #MeToo,” Tweeden tweeted alongside the photo.

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

Franken, 66, quickly apologized for the incident in a statement obtained by PEOPLE, saying: “I certainly don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann. As to the photo, it was clearly intended to be funny but wasn’t. I shouldn’t have done it.”

The former Saturday Night Live star later issued a longer statement, also obtained by PEOPLE, in which he apologized again and said “there’s no excuse” for his actions in the photo. “I don’t know what was in my head when I took that picture, and it doesn’t matter,” he said. “There’s no excuse. I look at it now and I feel disgusted with myself. It isn’t funny. It’s completely inappropriate. It’s obvious how Leeann would feel violated by that picture.”

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

He also referenced the recent wave of sexual misconduct allegations that have been leveled against men of power in various industries, and said that it has forced men to think about the impact their actions have on women.

“Over the past few months, all of us — including and especially men who respect women — have been forced to take a good, hard look at our own actions and think (perhaps, shamefully, for the first time) about how those actions have affected women,” Franken said.

President Donald Trump, who has also been accused of sexually harassing numerous women over the years, also tweeted about the controversy Thursday night, writing “The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words. Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps? ….”

“.And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?”

RELATED VIDEO: PEOPLE Writer Natasha Stoynoff Breaks Silence, Accuses Donald Trump of Sexual Attack

Tweeden, who also gave a press conference on Thursday in which she said she accepted Franken’s apology and was not calling for him to step down, reiterated to GMA that she has forgiven him.

“The first apology sounded like a staffer. That was very quick yesterday morning when I first talked about it,” Tweeden said. ‘And I was like, ‘Yeah, okay, a two sentence apology. I accepted that as well politicians need to really get ahead of the game. ‘I apologize, that was inappropriate that wasn’t me,’ … ‘Alright.’ ”

“The second apology, I think once things started happening in the media, the second one was definitely heartfelt,” she added. “I do accept it. I think he realized how people felt about it and now it’s a different time. 2006 is not 2017.”

She also said that she had seen Franken over the years with her husband. “I was very cold to him then and he had a chance to apologize and never did,” she said.

“Honestly, after my Paris situation [when she was held at gunpoint and robbed], a lot of my friends would come over and bring me healing crystals, and I obviously knew what they were — it’s very L.A. and it’s very popular right now — but for me it meant something so different. I was sitting there and I’d get these collections of them and I started to really dig deeper into what they meant and the meanings behind them and started to go to these crystal warehouses in Culver City and downtown [L.A.],” said Kardashian.
Developing each scent was about “being calm and healing,” which are the two words Kardashian used to describe a newly zen approach she’s taken over the past year. The color variations of each

Texas Church Shooting 911 Caller Describes How 8-Year-Old Girl Emerged Alive from the Rampage

Soon after Kathleen Curnow called 911 on Sunday morning to report the sound of gunfire at the church across from her house in Sutherland Springs, Texas, her husband went over to investigate amid the gathering first responders.

“I kept waiting for people to come out but no one was coming out. … My husband went to the doors of the church. He’s a strong man, but he said, ‘What I saw I was not prepared for,’ ” she tells PEOPLE.

And then from inside the First Baptist Church — the site of what would become the deadliest mass shooting in modern Texas history — came an 8-year-old girl, brought out by authorities.

Curnow, 43, says the child was “covered in blood and human flesh,” with “a bruise on her forehead.” Curnow tended to her as the details of the rampage became more apparent.

“We kept her on the porch because she was nodding her head and I didn’t want to take her inside and not be able to get her out,” Curnow says.

She continued: “She lost everybody but her stepfather. He came out and he was very stunned and dazed. He saw her and there was a sigh of relief. Her aunt was one of the ones coming late to church. We were able to get them together. I told them to stay as long as they want.

“After that, there were not a lot of people walking out. I was very thankful to learn that many of the people actually escaped from the side or the back. They got to safety at a convenience store close by. If they had stayed, I guarantee they wouldn’t have made it.”

As authorities later detailed, a gunman in all-black tactical gear and armed with an assault rifle began shooting on First Baptist from outside, shortly before 11:30 a.m. Sunday during a worship service, before walking into the church and continuing to fire.

At least 26 people were killed and 20 more injured.

The shooter, identified as 26-year-old former Air Force member Devin Kelley, fled the scene after exchanging gunfire with a local resident outside the church. He died from a gunshot in a neighboring county, though it’s unclear how he received his wound.

No victims’ names have been confirmed or released as authorities continue to work the crime scene, Wilson County, Texas, Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt said during a Sunday afternoon news conference.

Children were among the victims, who ranged in ages from 5 to 72, according to authorities.

• PEOPLE’s special edition True Crime Stories: 35 Real Cases That Inspired the Show Law & Order is on sale now.

That morning, as Curnow was with the young girl on her porch before her relatives also re-emerged, she says she offered her aid and comfort.

“We were in the shade, I got her apple juice, I was trying to clean her up,” Curnow says. “I asked her, ‘Sweetie what’s your name? Where do you go to school? Do you have brothers and sisters? Do you live close to here? Do you remember any phone numbers?’

“I told her, ‘You’re very very brave.’ “

Corneliani’s Sets New Direction With Blessing From Investcorp

NEW YORK — There’s a new Corneliani in the offing.
Last June, the luxury Italian men’s brand sold a majority stake to Investcorp, the Bahrain-based investment group, in a deal estimated at around $ 100 million. Corneliani, founded in 1958 and still based in the northern town of Mantua, reported sales of more than 110 million euros in 2015.
Since the sale in mid-2016, the new owners have put together a whole new team — many of whom were poached from competitors — and the results are starting to become evident.
There’s a new creative director, head of North America and marketing chief, all of whom joined the brand over the past few months from Ermenegildo Zegna. In addition to a more-modern aesthetic in its collection, the re-branding campaign will include a new logo, packaging, the launch of an e-commerce site, a new retail concept and the return to the Pitti Uomo show after a decade.
“This is year zero,” said Stefano Gaudioso Tramonte, general merchandising manager and style director. “The challenges have been hard and heavy, but the idea is to make some enhancements to the brand and blow away the dust that has collected over the last 10 years.”

From the Grassy Knoll to Ted Cruz’s Dad: The Biggest JFK Assassination Conspiracy Theories and How They’ve Been (Mostly) Debunked

On Nov. 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated while riding through the streets of Dallas in an open-topped motorcade. With wife Jackie Kennedy by his side, the 46-year-old president was struck by two bullets — one in the head and one in the neck. Former U.S. Marine Lee Harvey Oswald was charged with the murder, and a presidential commission later found that the gunman had acted alone.

But that conclusion has hardly satisfied the public, with JFK’s assassination fueling conspiracy theories for decades to come.

On Thursday, nearly 54 years later, the government is expected to release thousands of long-blocked and classified documents about JFK’s assassination, in a move that could further inflame existing conspiracy theories — or spawn new ones.

Here are three of the top conspiracy theories about JFK’s murder — so far:

1. The grassy knoll

Some say the trajectory of the bullets that struck JFK didn’t align with Oswald’s position on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, spurring theories that a second gunman — perhaps on the grassy knoll of Dallas’ Dealey Plaza — participated in the shooting.

That theory was given a boost by none other than the U.S. House of Representatives, which voted in 1976 — in the wake of the Watergate scandal — to establish a Select Committee on Assassinations to reinvestigate JFK’s killing.

The House found no evidence of Soviet, Cuban or CIA involvement in Kennedy’s assassination, but did conclude that there was “probably” a conspiracy involving a second gunman on the “grassy knoll,” The Washington Post reported, while pointing out that the theory has since been discredited multiple times.

In 2008, a team of experts used high-tech tools including 3-D computer simulations, artificial human body surrogates and modern blood splatter analysis to determine that Oswald’s perch is the likely origin point of the bullet that killed Kennedy, NBC News reported.

2. LBJ or the CIA

According to other widespread conspiracy theories, JFK’s assassination was plotted by the CIA and/or then-Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, who was sworn in as president hours after Kennedy was shot.

Some speculate that LBJ plotted Kennedy’s assassination because the vice president feared being dropped from the Democratic ticket in the upcoming 1964 election.

Kennedy’s personal secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, said in her 1968 memoir that Kennedy had in fact planned to replace Johnson as vice president, and that he told Lincoln as much just three days before he was killed.

However, historians and scholars have scoffed at the theory that LBJ orchestrated his boss’s death. Larry Sabato, author of The Kennedy Half-Century, told the Daily Beast the theory has no “hard evidence” and is “ridiculous.”

Others believe the CIA had Kennedy killed because the agency opposed some of the president’s positions on Cuba and Communism, particularly his refusal to offer air support for the failed Bay of Pigs invasion, a CIA mission to overthrow Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro, Business Insider reported.

The new documents are expected to shed light on the CIA’s response to the assassination — and could finally put this conspiracy to rest.

Although this theory has been the hardest to disprove, Mark Fenster, author of Conspiracy Theories: Secrecy and Power in American Culture, told the Daily Beast he’s deeply skeptical of it because “I’m not convinced that the CIA of that era has shown itself as an organization to be exceptionally competent at doing anything but ruining other countries and people’s lives in openly secretive ways. Pulling off a JFK hit and keeping it secret this long would be the mark of an incredibly competent plot.”

3. Ted Cruz’s dad

A theory resurfaced by President Donald Trump on the campaign trail claims that Sen. Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, was somehow involved in JFK’s killing and had been spotted with Oswald before the shooting.

Taking aim at his 2016 rival’s father, Trump told Fox News in a telephone interview last year, “His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald being, you know, shot. I mean the whole thing is ridiculous. What is this? Right? Prior to his being shot. And nobody even brings it up. I mean, they don’t even talk about that — that was reported. And nobody talks about it.”

This theory has also been widely discredited, with FactCheck.org pointing out that Trump was citing a National Enquirer articleThe piece quotes a photo expert who said an unidentified man spotted handing out Fidel Castro leaflets with Oswald has “more similarity than dissimilarity” to the elder Cruz.

RELATED VIDEO: Story Behind the Story: Jackie Kennedy and JFK’s Legacy

Speculation over JFK’s assassination is so popular that the majority of Americans have actually bought into the theories. A 2013 Washington Post-ABC News poll found that 62 percent of Americans believe Kennedy’s murder was part of a broader plot.

Meanwhile, Jackie Kennedy’s former Secret Service agent, Clint Hill, told PEOPLE this week that he believes the former first lady would support the release of the long-secret documents in the name of transparency.

“It was my understanding that she wanted all the information released,” he said. “She wanted people to have as much information about what actually happened as possible.”

Christina El Moussa Returns to Work with Ex-Husband Tarek After Splitting from Boyfriend Doug Spedding

 

A year and a half after splitting, Christina and Tarek El Moussa still have a strong professional relationship.

The Flip or Flop stars were spotted working together in Yorba Linda, California, on Thursday, as news broke that Christina, 34, had split from her boyfriend Doug Spedding, 55.

In Touch first reported that Christina had ended her romance with the businessman, who has entered an in-patient rehabilitation center for addiction issues.

A source confirmed the breakup to PEOPLE, saying Christina “supports Doug’s decision to seek treatment and remains in contact to support his recovery.”

Christina and Spedding had been dating since this summer. In July, PEOPLE reported that the pair, who were linked before her marriage to Tarek, had reconnected.

“Their children are only a few years apart, so they’ve been doing a lot of activities with the kids: ice skating, swimming, BBQs, just low-key stuff at home,” a source said about Christina and Spedding, who is a father of six. “Christina respects that he is a great father; he’s always present when it comes to his children and isn’t distracted by his phone and social media. They’re just taking it slow and enjoying their time together.”

RELATED VIDEO: Christina and Tarek El Moussa’s Divorce Has Not Stopped Their Business Relationship

 

Christina and Tarek, 36, quietly separated in May 2016 following a bizarre incident involving a gun.

She submitted her divorce documents in August, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the breakup and requesting joint legal and physical custody of their two children: daughter Taylor, 6, and son Brayden, 2.

They continue to film Flip or Flop together.

The two are also co-executive producers on Chi-Town Flop, which follows husband-and-wife team Bryan and Maira Segal as they transform homes in the Windy City using the same model as Tarek and Christina’s successful series.

“We’ve been working together for a really long time,” Tarek told PEOPLE in August of the former couple’s dynamic as business partners. “It’s our job. Obviously, we know each other really well.”

‘It Feels Like A Bad Dream’: Las Vegas Concertgoer Recounts Escape From Concert Shooting

At first, Shaun Hoff dismissed the loud, successive pops he was hearing, thinking they were exploding fireworks. The Los Angeles casting director who escaped unscathed from the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas Sunday evening tells PEOPLE the blasts continued for more than 30 seconds before anyone realized their lives were on the line.

“My wife and I were right in front of the stage when someone started screaming, ‘Everybody down, get down,’ and we just hit the ground,” Hoff tells PEOPLE. “At that point, the music stopped and at the same time, the shooting stopped, but for about a minute. Then, it just kept going and going. The shooting lasted for 8 minutes, but it felt like it continued for 30 minutes.”

As he was realizing the gravity of the situation, Hoff says he watched a woman 10 feet away from him get shot and apparently die.

“It was insane,” Hoff recalls. “It’s unreal.”

At least 50 people have been killed and an estimated 406 were taken to area hospitals after a gunman opened fire on the country music festival Sunday night. The shooting surpasses the Pulse nightclub massacre of 2016 as the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

• 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 shooting started just as Jason Aldean began his set.

Police SWAT confronted the shooter — identified as Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nevada — after finding him on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said. Lombardo said Paddock likely died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Hoff — who attends the three-day country music festival in Las Vegas every year — and his wife laid motionless on the ground for 3 minutes, as people continued falling all around them.

“We waiting until there was a pause in the gunfire, and we ran,” Hoff explains. “We were just sprinting and then, the shooting started up again, and we dipped into a Porta Potty and hid in there until the shooting stopped again.”

When it did, Hoff says he and his wife continued with their escape, ducking behind cars whenever the shooting resumed.

“There were bodies all over the place…we were just through all of these bodies,” Hoff says. “It was nuts. There were people bleeding all over the place and you could not stop to help anyone because the gun shots were still going. No one had any idea this guy was in the hotel, because it actually sounded like the shooting was getting closer and closer.”

• PEOPLE’s special edition True Crime Stories: 35 Real Cases That Inspired the Show Law & Order is on sale now.

Hoff estimates he and his wife ran two miles before stopping in the parking lot at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. “We were there 10 minutes before someone started shouting that there was an active shooter at that hotel,” he says. “There was all kinds of miscommunication happening in those moments.”

The couple continued walking around Las Vegas in a daze before happening upon a parking garage. They met total strangers, and learned the strangers were about to leave town and head back to Ontario, California.

“So we hitchhiked with them, and once we got to Ontario, we Ubered it another hour to Los Angeles,” Hoff says. “We left everything behind in our room. We literally just left with the clothes on our backs.

Hoff says it wasn’t until he was halfway home that he realized he could have been killed.

“It feels like a bad dream,” he explains. “I am feeling incredibly lucky, especially after seeing all of the stuff that was around us. It’s something I’ll never be able to unsee.”

Better Days Unveils Inaugural Art Exhibition With Works From Maripol, Olaf Breuning and Others

DESIGN IN MIND: Despite sounding like a sign of these unsettling times, the restaurant formerly known as Happy Ending quietly reopened as Better Days earlier this month.
But the name change is meant to be an homage to New York City’s music incubators from the Seventies and Eighties. In its original incarnation, Better Days was a place for the disenfranchised to retreat and an escape for artists who danced away their troubles. Owner Oliver Stumm said he wants Better Days to be a neighborhood destination and haven for creatives, so featuring local artists was a natural step in fostering this type of environment.
With that in mind, an exhibition has been culled by Better Days owner Oliver Stumm, as well Rita Cruz, Luke Brown, Eddie Brannan and Skylar Pittman (whose day job is with Bruce Weber’s Studio Little Bear Inc.) The artists they selected are likely to be found at the dinery and downstairs club on any given day. Work from established ones like Jack Pierson, Maripol and Olaf Breuning are in the mix. On view through December, the exhibition will be featured in Better Days’ upstairs space. The downstairs lounge is slated to open Oct. 6.

Fergie Makes a Sexy Return to the Stage in Rio Following News of Split from Josh Duhamel

Fergie has returned to the music scene with a bang.

After the 42-year-old singer and Josh Duhamel, 44, revealed they have separated following eight years of marriage on Thursday, Fergie took the stage Saturday night to perform at the Rock in Rio Festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The former Black Eyed Peas singer sported a risqué black and white ensemble for the concert, featuring a body suit with lace-up details on the sides. Her mismatched over-the-knees boots read Double Dutchess, the name of her visual album due to drop Sept. 22.

Although it’s been 11 years since the release of her solo album The Dutchess, Fergie proved she hasn’t missed a step in her time away from the music scene. She combined her sexy dance moves with her hit songs like “Fergalicious.”

The singer met with a small group of lucky fans on Friday, during which she thanked them for their support following news of her split.

“I want to thank all of you in your different ways. Whether it be helping online with all the naysayers or just helping me with the fashion or just sometimes being there for me when I need to read something that’s filled with love,” Fergie told the fans as seen in footage shared on her Instagram Story.

“Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. I’m so glad this whole race has been to get here … I thank you so much, everybody, I appreciate you so much. I’m so blessed,” she said in a second video.

On Thursday, Duhamel was spotted out for the first time following the announcement of their separation and was noticeably not wearing his wedding ring.

Why Carrie Underwood Went from Working Out 6 Days a Week to Just 1 or 2: ‘That Just Kind of Has to Be Okay’

Only made it to the gym twice this week? Then you and Carrie Underwood have something in common.

Though the superstar singer is known for her sculpted legs, she admitted Thursday that she isn’t working out as much as she used to.

“I used to work out six days a week,” Underwood, 34, told E!. “But now that’s a little rare, sometimes it’s one or two times a week and that just kind of has to be okay. And it is okay because whatever I’m doing that’s keeping me out of the gym is important.”

And the Nashville crooner certainly has plenty on her plate. Along with her music, Underwood has her Calia by Carrie Underwood activewear line and a busy life with her husband Mike Fisher, who just retired from the NHL after making it to the Stanley Cup Finals, and their 2-year-old son Isaiah.

Underwood says she makes family time a priority over the gym, but when she does get in a workout, it often becomes a family affair — especially when Isaiah crashes her workouts.

“He probably will, 90% of the time, wander into my workout session,” she said. “But it’s nice to be able to stop and give him a kiss.”

Fisher will join in too, but even the former professional athlete can’t keep up with Underwood.

“Mainly, when we work out together, we’re just working out in the same space,” she said. “But I will say, the other day I was doing the ab wheel … and later on that day, Mike said something like, ‘I’m not ready for the ab wheel yet.’ ”

And along with her ab routine, Underwood will do sprints and lunges in her hilly neighborhood.

“I do a lot of squats, I do a lot of lunges, I do a lot of curtsy lunges, I do a lot of goblet squats, I use the leg press machine,” she said.

The singer recently launched a sneaker boot with Puma, and has also dropped a series of merchandise collections tied to his 2017 Starboy World Tour.

Brands Distancing Themselves From Louise Linton Instagram Post

Valentino has no qualms in denying any ties to Louise Linton after the new wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin posted on Instagram an image of herself exiting a government plane and provided a slew of designer hashtags.
A spokeswoman said plainly that “Louise Linton did not receive any gifted merchandise, compensation or loans from Valentino” when asked whether the company had any formal business interest in being tagged in a late Monday post by Linton.
The actress, whose most high-profile role to date is a 2007 appearance on “CSI: NY,” is also not affiliated in any way with and has received no free merchandise from Tom Ford, a brand she also mentioned in her post.
With tags like “#rolandmouret pants,” “#tomford sunnies,” “#hermesscarf,” and “#valentinorockstudheels #valentino,” it seemed like Linton was taking after the growing droves of digital influencers that are compensated for mentioning brands and their products on social media. Instagram is particularly popular for branded influencer-created content.

Representatives of Roland Mouret and Hermès could not be reached for comment on the post.
Linton has since deleted the post and made her account private after a response to an Instagram comment critical of

Mel B Opens Up on Being a Single Mom Again After Nasty Split from Stephen Belafonte

Melanie “Mel B” Brown says she’s adjusting to life as a single mom again, nearly six months after the nasty split from husband Stephen Belafonte

“My kids are great. 18, 10 and 5,” the America’s Got Talent judge told reporters after a taping of the show. “They’re all doing amazing and they’re all lovely.”

“I just make them all listen to me,” she said. “And they don’t always do.”

Brown added, “I was a single parent for a long time with Phoenix, so I kind of learned that way, and moms always know best.”

Phoenix, 18, is Brown’s daughter from her first marriage, to dancer Jimmy Gulzar. Brown and Gulzar split about a year after Phoenix was born.

The 42-year-old singer admits that there is no one rule when it comes to parenting as a single mom.

“There’s no advice that I could give. Every mother, every parent is different,” she said. “The number one rule is you show your kid lots of love and respect, and you treat your kid how you want them to treat other people.”

Brown filed for divorce from Belafonte in March after 10 years of marriage. In explosive court documents, she accused Belafonte – the father of Brown’s youngest child, Madison – of abuse. Belafonte denied the allegations and was awarded $ 40,000 a month in spousal support by a judge last month.

Brown also joked that she’s “so happy to be single right now” after a group of hunky a capella singers from the Air Force Academy finished their rendition of “Some Nights” on Monday night’s quarterfinal episode of America’s Got Talent.

When she’s not parenting, Brown likes to meditate and work on the art of Reiki, a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation.

“I do a lot of Reiki,” she said. “I listen to a lot of guided meditation, chakras and all that kind of stuff.”

Amandla Stenberg Learned of Trump’s Election Win From Actor in Nazi Uniform: ‘I Started Sobbing’

Amandla Stenberg heard the news of Donald Trump‘s presidency from a shocking source.

The 18-year-old actress is gracing the cover of Teen Vogue‘s Icons Issue. And in the story, she opened to Janelle Monáe about her experiences with racism in and out of Hollywood.

Stenberg was on set of her upcoming movie Where Hands Touch — where she plays a biracial girl growing up during the Holocaust — the night of the election.

“An actor playing a Nazi soldier took out his phone to refresh the news and announced that Trump was president,” Stenberg told Monáe. “I was actually seeing this come out of the mouth out of an actor dressed in a Nazi uniform.”

“Immediately, I excused myself because I felt like I couldn’t breathe anymore,” she added. “I started sobbing. It was shocking. It made me really question how we could reach a point where our country is so divided.”

RELATED VIDEO: Natasha Stoynoff Breaks Silence, Accuses Donald Trump of Sexual Attack

Stenberg recounted how the director of the film, Amma Asante, found her on set and offered words of comfort — telling Stenberg that “progress is like a coil you have to go down in order to circle back up again. That’s how it’s worked throughout history. That’s how it will continue to work.”

The Hunger Games actress also opened up about getting rid of her iPhone to make sure she’s in the right mental state.

“Amid all of the chaos in the world right now, it’s so important that everyone actively works to preserve their mental health so that we’re able to heal and create change,” Stenberg said. “I got rid of my iPhone, and that was essential in preserving my mental health. Now I have a flip phone that I just use to talk to people and hear their actual voices.”
