Jason Momoa Details His Incredible Love Story with ‘Queen’ Lisa Bonet

 

Everyone remembers pining over their first celebrity crush — but when you’re Jason Momoa, you actually marry yours.

During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Thursday, the Justice League star opened up about his relationship with his longtime love, Lisa Bonet.

Last month, Momoa, 38, and Bonet, 49, wed in an intimate celebration. Although it was assumed that the couple, who share daughter Lola, 10, and son Nakoa-Wolf, 8, married in 2007, they officially tied the knot just weeks ago, a source confirmed to PEOPLE.

“Finally, man,” Momoa said with a laugh, showing off his ring and wedding present — a necklace that took four years to carve — to host James Corden.

“Ever since I was like, 8 years old and I saw her on the TV, I was like, ‘Mommy, I want that one,’ ” he said. “I’m like, ‘I’m going to stalk you for the rest of my life and I’m going to get you.’ ”

“I’m a full-fledged stalker,” he joked. “I didn’t tell her that until we had two babies, otherwise, I’d be creepy and weird. But yeah, just always wanted to meet her. She was a queen, always.”

Momoa and Bonet met in 2005 at a jazz club in New York City through mutual friends.

“We just happened to be in the right place at the right time,” he said. “I actually had dreaded my hair for her. I had dreadlocks, she had dreadlocks. I literally turned around and I see her and she goes, ‘I’m Lisa.’ I turned around to my friend and I . I had f—ing fireworks going off inside, man. I convinced her to take me home, because I was living in a hotel.”

The two shared a meal at Cafe 101 that night.

“We sat down, she ordered a Guinness, and that was it,” he said. “I beyond love Guinness. We had Guinness and grits, and the rest is history.”

Momoa is also stepdad to Bonet’s daughter, Zoë Kravitz, whom the insider told PEOPLE attended the recent nuptials.

On Thursday, Kravitz, 28, shared an adorable photo of her and Momoa.

“Love you papabear,” she captioned the shot.

South Park Creator ‘Would Love to Make a FPS’

After now having worked on two South Park role-playing games, series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker discussed what other genres they might like to explore.

“I would love to make a first-person shooter. I’m not even kidding,” Stone said in an interview with IGN. “Some sort of first-person, going through a 3D thing where you’re seeing characters.”

Stone went on to note how the role-playing genre is such a good fit for South Park, saying, “I love the way we do

and Stick of Truth where the whole conceit behind those is it looks like the show.” Parker also pointed out how “RPGs just play so well into… writing, and applying to characters,” which makes the genre such a good fit for South Park.

Love Is in the Air! Scott Disick and Sofia Richie Kiss Aboard Private Plane

 

Scott Disick and Sofia Richie are taking their relationship to new heights.

Ever since they confirmed their romance last month, Sofia, 19, and Disick, 34, haven’t wasted any time packing on the PDA. On Sunday, the two were aboard a private plane together when a pal snapped a photo of the couple holding hands and kissing, which Richie added to her Instagram stories.

The on-camera make-out is just the latest in a string of photos they’ve shared of each other on social media.

Last week, the two heavily documented their trip to Punta Mita, Mexico, while a source told PEOPLE that Sofia has been referring to Disick as “her boyfriend” and “thinks he’s the best.”

RELATED VIDEO: Scott Disick and Sofia Richie Get a Congratulations Dessert and Become Instagram Official

 

The couple first sparked speculation in May after they were pictured cuddling up aboard a yacht in the south of France during the Cannes Film Festival. At the time, Sofia — who previously dated Justin Bieber — adamantly denied anything romantic was going on, tweeting that the two were “just homies.”

The relationship has raised a few eyebrows, and a source recently told PEOPLE that Sofia’s father Lionel Richie isn’t too pleased about it.

“He thinks Scott is the worst person she could ever see and that he raised her better than that,” said the source of the American Idol judge’s reaction. “He thinks she should have more respect for herself as a young woman. Lionel knows Scott’s playboy ways and he doesn’t want to see his daughter get hurt.”

The insider also said Sofia is “much more invested in the relationship” than Disick, who shares three kids with his ex Kourtney Kardashian, 38.

“Scott isn’t treating this as a long-term relationship whatsoever,” said the source. “He is just having fun. Sofia wanted commitment from him, so he committed to be her ‘boyfriend.’ “

“He still has Kourtney at the top of his mind all the time, and he is still texting and flirting with other girls,” the source added. “Sofia is very young and naive and doesn’t know what she’s in for. She feels like she’s in the in-crowd right now and loves that Scott has swagger and money and that he loves to travel and party.”

Todd Chrisley Wishes Daughter Savannah a Happy Birthday With This Sweet Tribute: ‘How I Love This Girl’

Happy birthday, Savannah Chrisley!

Todd Chrisley‘s daughter celebrated her 20th birthday on Friday and received several well-wishes from her family members on Instagram.

Her father posted a sweet birthday message, complete with a photo gallery of the two, writing in the caption, “Oh how I love this girl @savannahchrisley Happy Birthday my sweet girl! I am so proud to be your dad! #cantbelieveyouare20 #happybirthday.”

Savannah’s boyfriend, Luke Kennard, also posted a birthday message on Instagram, even though it seemed the couple spent the day apart.

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Wish I was there to celebrate with you. I hope you have the best day and I can’t wait to see you again!” Kennard, 21, wrote in the caption.

The reality star spent the day with among friends, as seen on her Instagram.

Good friend Collins Bradshaw Cromie shared a touching message about Savannah, writing, “Most people only know you from afar and make assumptions about your heart, motives and personality.”

“I’m here to say that you have a heart of gold, the funniest, goofiest, most genuine personality and the purest of pure motives in everything you do,” Cromie continued. “To know you is to love you! Happy happy birthday @savannahchrisley !!!! I love you and can’t wait to celebrate you ALL DAY!”

Recently, Todd defended his daughter’s relationship with Kennard after reports that they had split.

“So proud of these two and how they NEVER listen to the noise,” he wrote. “@lukekennard5 @savannahchrisley I hope you guys are having an amazing time.”

Alongside the message, Todd shared a photo of the young couple, who are currently vacationing in the Cayman Islands for Savannah’s upcoming birthday.

Savannah — who stars on Chrisley Knows Best with her father and family — and Kennard confirmed they were dating back in June. Kennard was just selected by the Detroit Pistons as the 12th pick of the 2017 NBA draft.

Rachel Lindsay & Bryan Abasolo on Their Interracial Relationship: ‘Love Is Blind — We’re Just a Man & Woman in Love’

 

Even before her journey on The Bachelorette began, Rachel Lindsay made a personal commitment to stay true to her heart.

As the first black lead in Bachelor Nation history, Lindsay admittedly felt the pressure to choose a black man from her pool of contestants.

“It wasn’t always easy. It wasn’t. But I had to not let the pressure get to me,” Lindsay, 32, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “I had to rise above it to find my happy ending at the end of all of this.”

“I knew that people would be watching myself in this role for the first time, and there would be people who were positive and people who were negative, and I would feel pressure from certain audiences that would say you ‘had to pick a black man.’ And then I would have other audiences that didn’t care about that,” Lindsay shares.

“But for me, before I said yes to being the Bachelorette I had to get over . I had to realize that not everyone was going to be for me when it came to the decisions that I make. Not everyone was going to be happy about my decisions, but I needed to be selfish in this journey and find the one who was perfect for me,” Lindsay explains. “I couldn’t make a decision based on anyone else because I’m the one who’s going to have to live with it.”

And new fiancé Bryan Abasolo couldn’t be prouder of how the Dallas-born lawyer portrayed herself on the show. “Such strength, class and grace,” says Abasolo, who got down on one knee and proposed to Lindsay on Monday night’s season 13 finale.

For more on Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay’s engagement to Bryan Abasolo, including their thoughts on their big debut and plan for the future, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

Reflecting on their romance, the newly engaged couple says that race never played a factor in them falling in love.

“Love is blind,” says Miami-based chiropractor Abasolo.

“I’m not going to pick somebody because they look a certain way. I could’ve done that without doing the show. I really put my all in this because I was trying to find that one for me. I was trying to find my person — the person who I want to spend the rest of my life with — and I can’t let color dictate that,” says Lindsay. ”

“I can’t be blindsided by the fact that I have to choose this person because they look the same way that I do. That’s not fair. That’s not what love is about. That doesn’t define love. It’s not my definition of love,” she continues. “My definition of love is sitting right next to me. So it was really important for me to not do that. Everything else was background noise and I was just zeroed in on finding that person for me.”

Now that the couple no longer has to keep their engagement under wraps, and will now be able spend time with one another in public, they realize their lives will be propelled into spotlight.

Still, they’re not intimidated about being in a high-profile interracial relationship — or any criticism that may result from others’ biases.

“Honestly, we don’t even think about it or talk about it. I mean, we’re just a man and a woman in love. We just want to enjoy life,” Abasolo shares. “I just think we’re two mature adults, that we can handle anything moving forward. Communication is a big key.”

Adds Lindsay, “I think we’re both strong enough to rise above whatever criticism we may face by being an interracial couple. But between the two of us, we had those tough questions during the season. I know that he is capable of handling it, as am I. For us, we just love each other.”

Nick Cannon Is Not Looking for Love After Mariah Carey Split: ‘I’m Broken, I’m Shattered’

Three years after his split with Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon is still shattered.

At the Kids Choice Sports Awards on Thursday, Cannon, 36, told Entertainment Tonight that he is not currently looking to open up his heart to someone else.

“I’m broken. I’m shattered,” he said.

Cannon married the singing legend in 2008, but the couple broke up in 2014. They have two children together, 6-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.

On February 21, Cannon happily welcomed his third child, and first with former Miss Arizona U.S.A. Brittany Bell, even though they are no longer an item.

When Cannon first announced that he was expecting another baby, PEOPLE reported his saying that he does not consider Bell his “ex.” Rather, Carey was his last ex, and that “everybody else is people that I’ve known, loved and cared for.”

So although Cannon might not be involved in anything serious right now, he did admit that he’s “always dating.”

“Why not? I’m a single man. I’m supposed to date,” he said.

Carey, on the other hand, has been seen out with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Bryan Tanaka, swimming with sharks over the July 4th weekend. She had also been engaged to James Packer before they broke up in 2016.

Despite Cannon’s single status, he seems fond of Tanaka.

“He’s a nice guy,” Cannon shared.

And even though Carey has moved on, Cannon can still cherish the memories the two had together.

“That was a special time. It was, but we made some amazing children together, and so we’ll always be together,” he said.

Adopt Us! Cats Fell in Love at a Shelter and Hope to Find a New Home Together

Home: Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to an adoptable pet every week. Today, in honor of Adopt a Shelter Cat month, meet The Fox and Bunny, a bonded pair of kitties available through the CATS Cradle Shelter of Fargo, North Dakota.

These adorable adult kitties are both former strays who have struck up a friendship (romance?) at the shelter.

The Fox, as they call him, was blind in his left eye due to scarring/cataracts when he arrived there, but CATS Cradle helped him get the lens replacement surgery he needed, and now his vision is restored.

“His right eye is a little cloudy but he can see through it,” says a bio for the orange kitty. “Between being rescued, living indoors with plentiful food and attention, and his ‘new’ eyes, The Fox’s future looks much brighter all around.”

The apple of The Fox’s eye is Bunny, a female kitty who was quite skittish and lacked confidence when she came to the shelter. Over time though, she has adjusted to being held on “trusted laps” (in her kitty bed) and she’s also shown her affectionate side.

“She’s even taken naps with one of the volunteers,” says her bio. “She’s spending ever-increasing amounts of time out and about in her room, laying on the big bench or toward the front of the Kuranda tower.  She’s making great strides and we couldn’t be prouder of her!”

Because of the sweet relationship these two share — there are lots and lots of cuddles! — the shelter would love to see them get adopted together. If you’re interested in them, contact CATS Cradle at 701-356-7877.

Click here to meet last week’s adoptable pet, Oliver.

Adopting a pet is an amazing experience – and a big decision! Before bringing a pet into your home, it’s important to consider your family circumstances and do your research.

‘Turn to Love’: People Post Signs of Unity at London Bridge After Deadly Terror Attack

Just hours after a terror attack in and around London Bridge killed seven and injured nearly 50 people, mourners descended on the famous structure to post messages of hope and optimism.

Video posted to Twitter showed people posting signs that stated #TurntoLove #ForLondon and #ISISwillLose #LoveWillWin at the London Bridge cordon Sunday morning.

The gesture came the morning after three attackers careened a white van into pedestrians on London Bridge, in the heart of the British capital, Sunday evening. The men then pulled knives and got out at the crowded area of Borough Market and attacked victims on the street and at pubs, Commissioner for the Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick, said in a statement.

The latest violence come less than two weeks after a deadly terror attack outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester killed 22 people plus the attacker, and injured approximately 116 — included children and parents waiting to pick up their kids from the concert.

The London attack occurred just one day before Grande and other stars will take the stage for the Manchester One Love benefit in Manchester, and the pop star’s manager Scooter Braun vowed that the show will go on despite the latest attack in London.

“After the events last night in London, and those in Manchester just two weeks ago, we feel a sense of responsibility to honor those lost, injured and affected,” Braun said in a statement on Twitter Sunday. “We plan to honor them with courage, bravery, and defiance in the face of fear. Today’s One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater purpose,” Scooter Braun wrote on Twitter Sunday morning.

Meanwhile, as the world reels from yet another tragedy, stories of ordinary citizens stepping up to help the victims have emerged.

Witnesses told of people throwing glasses, chairs and other objects at the attackers to fend them off as they stormed into a pub in Borough Market in central London, threatening to kill people during an eight minute rampage.

Others offered free places to stay or to arrange rides for people who were stranded after the attack, reports The Telegraph, noting that the response mirrors the outpouring of support after Manchester.

The Sun reports that Sainsburys, a popular supermarket chain, delivered sandwiches to emergency worker at London Bridge.

In a statement made outside Downing Street Sunday morning, Prime Minister Theresa May praised “the courage of members of the public who defended themselves and others from attackers.”

She also declared that “we cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are.”

Happy Endings Abound In The ‘Love Actually’ Mini-Sequel

Love Actually” is still all around us, thanks to the mini-sequel that aired Thursday during NBC’s Red Nose Day charity special. We are now blessed with an update on most of the characters from the 2003 Christmas hit that continues to inspire obsession and vitriol around the world. 

It’s happy endings (mostly) all around. The couples formed in the film ― Natalie (Martine McCutcheon) and the prime minister (Hugh Grant), Jamie (Colin Firth) and Aurelia (Lucia Moniz), even Sam (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) and Joanna (Olivia Olson) ― are still together. Mark (Andrew Lincoln) is still showing up at Juliet’s (Keira Knightley) door while Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor) awaits her return, but now Mark is married to Kate Moss. Billy Mack’s (Bill Nighy) manager has died, but Billy is still recording half-baked publicity singles and giving cantankerous radio interviews. Rufus (Rowan Atkinson) is methodically packaging gifts at Walgreens, because product placement is real, and Daniel is inquiring about Sam’s life on that same waterfront bench (sans Claudia Schiffer). The happiest ending of all goes to Sarah (Laura Linney), who’s bagged a new fellow played by Patrick Dempsey. 

Cast members missing from the roster: Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman (who died in 2016), Rodrigo Santoro, Kris Marshall and the rest of Colin’s crew, and Martin Freeman and Joanna Page, who played the flirty body doubles.

How To Love The Broken

I stand before you… broken.

My heart has endured a level of pain that no words created for humanity can adequately capture. To understand the anguish, you must walk the road of the bereaved.

It’s as if my soul had been swallowed by an immense dark, deep and an endless black hole. The lack of light has left me unsure of which direction leads to the light, which passage takes me to rest and which corridor might offer hope.

In the darkness I am alone.

Regardless of how many people walk with me to the edge, only I can enter and navigate the emptiness. Only I can stand and stare into the vast, dark circle of my personal hell.

In time I re-emerge from the shadows as the cracks of light make their way into my stone cold heart and offer warmth, like a midsummer’s eve, soft and comfortable…a feeling I vaguely remember and deeply crave.

As I reenter you stand before me, offering to bring shelter to my weary and weak heart.

I stand before you… broken.

During my time in the darkness, I built walls.

The walls, constructed with steel beams and engineered taller than any building in history will be forever impermeable to you as an invader that might bring new emotion, new pain, and even new happiness. The walls are formed to keep you out because if I don’t let you in, I can’t get hurt. Feeling nothing is easier than ever going back to the pain of goodbye.

I’m sure I won’t let you in….ever. You aren’t worth the pain. You aren’t worth the days, weeks, months and even years of happiness, joy, togetherness on the off chance that your impending and unpredictable departure will take me back to the mouth of the beast and into the darkness.

He took me there….to the darkness and the pain. He departed after years of memories, children, days in the sun and nights in his arms feeling his genuine warmth. He left after a lifetime of happiness that didn’t last a lifetime. His memory sits with me, and I smile at all we created, all we shared. He was worth it.

I won’t let you return me to that place. I just keep telling myself you aren’t worth it.

Despite my distance, you aren’t deterred. You believe the walls will come down and my heart can beat again, full of vibrancy, rushing with new life, new hope, and new chances.

You stand before my wall, and you wait. You chip away at my defenses, and you slowly turn my heart from stone as the familiar sensation of possibility broaches my inner being. At times you knock down a wall, and I allow it to fall. Other times you hit a wall, and I rebuild it taller and stronger. I ask you to be patient with my uncertainty, and you are….you have to be if you want the parts of me that emerged after he departed.

If you are going to stay, I need you to understand a few things about loving me after being broken. My walls won’t ever come down unless I can live my truth and you won’t ever hold the places of my being you hope to inhabit.

You can’t fix me… don’t even try

When I say I’m broken, it’s not for you to fix. I don’t need a man to rescue and save the broken pieces of me. I have to save myself. I need to glue my heart back together, and I have to believe in my power to survive the unthinkable. Adding you to my story does not fix the past, and it doesn’t give me amnesia to what came before. On the days I’m broken, allow me to be broken. Don’t come to my wall with materials you think repair, instead, allow me to feel my emotions, tend to my heartbreak and just be.

Don’t be jealous of a ghost… he’s not your competition

Let me be forthright and upfront. I loved him then. I love him now. I will love him forever. You aren’t a replacement for him, and you aren’t taking his spot in my heart. People aren’t replaceable, and love is not mutually exclusive. I won’t compare him to you so you shouldn’t worry about his place in my heart. Help me create a new location that you hold and just like I gave him his spot for eternity, I may be able to do the same for you. I won’t know yet; love takes time, memories, experience and trust. Show me your desire for my loyalty, and I will show you the depths of my love. You see, when I entered the darkness of my personal black hole, I realized that with great pain comes great growth. I didn’t know love was so vast, extensive and breathtaking until I stepped into the abyss. Now I know it’s unlimited power and should I choose to share it with you, you may know it too.

His photos represent pieces of my history

Don’t ask me to put them away, take them down or hide them out of your view. Allow me to do what feels right with my memories. Hiding them away from your vision won’t hide them away from my soul, they are woven into the tapestry of all I have become. Death taught me that memories and the photos that captured the most meaningful moments of my life are treasured artifacts. Don’t expect me to forget what can’t be forgotten and don’t expect me to hide from you the important parts of who I am. My past shaped the person I have become. The very same person you are asking to love. Love all of me, even the parts that came before you because without that history, I am not be the woman you so desperately crave.

Allow me to say his name

I will talk about him from time to time. I will tell stories that make me laugh and occasionally cry. Like a living and breathing novel, my stories bring life to his memory. His name is not meant to harm you but to show you the true power love has over our individual journeys as they blend effortlessly with those who touch our heart. Should I bring down my walls and allow you to take place firmly in my being, you will be assured that your name, will also live with me forever, as part of our combined story.

Let me allow you to enter my heart slowly

I can’t rush this; I won’t. It’s not easy for me to let you in. The pain is raw, despite the time that has passed. It’s the kind of pain that sits with a soul forever. Pain that can be revisited quickly and a scab that never seems to heal fully. As you enter my walled city, move on my heart with gentle compassion. Any other form of entry will be thwarted with stronger defenses than before. If your approach is careful and thoughtful….you may be fortunate enough to find your place in my heart, forever safe in the deep crevasses my intricate heart offers.

Be confident in all you are and all we can create

I need you to be confident in yourself and all you bring to this adventure. You aren’t him. I don’t want you to be him. I want you to be you, and I want you to help us create our path. You aren’t completing the story I was writing; you are helping us write a new story with our timelines and our love. Be confident in that love, and I will be confident in it too.

I’ve asked a lot of you

I understand if this is all so much more than you can handle. It’s not easy to penetrate my walls. You can walk away if you aren’t strong enough for my reality. I’d rather you walk away than pretend you can be something that neither one of us need or want. I can’t forget my history, nor do I want to. Walk with me into the future, understand we are both shaped by all that came before. Otherwise, you may need to find someone that will be what you need; I am not her.

However, if you stay

If you stay, I can promise you that should our love grow and develop I have more to offer you than before I was broken. The broken pieces of me make me more interesting, more colorful and add to my depth.

I have the perspective of loss that shapes how I see the world now. I will treasure your touch, your time and your heart. I feel more deeply, see more clearly and live more fully than those who never walked in the darkness….alone. I know you aren’t mine forever, and by choosing to share our today, I will cherish the beauty of the moment. I can’t control how long we will share the oxygen that surrounds us but should I love you, it will be forever, and you will have been worth it.

I am making a choice to bring down my walls and risk the pain all over again because of our memories, pictures, and history are worth the pain.

In fact, it may be the only thing in life worth it at the end.

The darkness showed me the immense beauty of the light.

Gail Simmons’ First Cookbook Is a ‘Love Letter’ to the Chefs Who Taught Her to Cook—See the Cover

After years of working in the food industry and filming nearly 15 seasons of Top Chef, Gail Simmons is finally ready to put her massive collection of recipes into her first cookbook.

For an exclusive look at the cover of Bringing It Home: Favorite Recipes from a Life of Adventurous EatingSimmons tells PEOPLE the title really says it all.

“This book is about taking all of the inspiration from my whole life, starting with my childhood and into my adventures traveling, working with chefs, sitting beside them at judges’ table, exploring new cities, new towns, new nooks and crannies all over the world,” she says. “Whether it’s a flavor combination that I saw or discovered or an ingredient or a technique or just a piece of advice from a chef that inspired me to cook a different way—and bringing all of that inspiration home to my own home kitchen.”

Inside the book, which will be released October 24, are recipes dear to her heart including a dark chocolate licorice cake that she created for her father, and a spaghetti pie (pictured on the cover) inspired by the spaghetti sandwiches she adored eating while traveling through New Zealand over 20 years ago.

“Every recipe I think really has a twist or an ingredient or a little snippet of information that makes the recipe a little bit special,” says the Food & Wine contributor. “It’s a really approachable home-cook book.”

From Coinage: Here’s When It’s Worth to Buy Organic

In between the bountiful supply of “kitchen wisdom” she sprinkles throughout the book—like the best tool for peeling vegetables or the pantry items you need to up your cooking—are also dishes that serve as an “homage to a lot of the chefs and mentors I’ve had in my life,” says Simmons.

“There’s a recipe for Tom , there’s a recipe for Padma , there’s a recipe for Hugh Acheson and Marcus Samuelsson,” she says. “All of the chefs or people who have been mentors of mine and really taught me how to cook. So this is a little bit of a love letter to them.”

Oh, My God, You Need To Read Ryan Reynolds’ Love Letter To Blake Lively

Ryan Reynolds really loves Blake Lively. How much you ask? Well, enough to wax poetic about her virtues during the Met Gala on Sunday night, when he could have easily spent the extra three minutes gawking at Rihanna’s dress

The couple was stopped for a photo by Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind Humans of New York, a wildly popular photo series that collects portraits and interviews of New Yorkers around the city. 

Stanton typically elicits powerful and revealing statements from his subjects, whether they be a former president of the United States or the pharmacist at your local CVS. 

Reynolds took the opportunity to praise his wife and the mother of his two children for living her live with a deep compassion for humankind, which he says has changed him for the better. 

“She always responds with empathy. She meets anger with empathy. She meets hate with empathy. She’ll take the time to imagine what happened to a person when they were five or six years old,” Reynolds said. “And she’s made me a more empathetic person. I had a very fractured relationship with my father. Before he died, she made me remember things I didn’t want to remember. She made me remember the good times.”

The actor’s father, James Reynolds, died in October of 2015 after a 20-year battle with Parkinson’s disease. Reynolds had paid tribute to his dad with an old childhood photo of his father holding him as an infant. 

The couple’s first daughter James, who they welcomed in 2014, shares the same name as Reynolds’ father.

Blake Lively Trolls Ryan Reynolds With Her Undying Love For John Legend

All those years toiling away at the Constance Billard School for Girls among the Blair Waldorfs of the world have clearly paid off, because Blake Lively has mastered the art of the perfect burn. Her latest target? Husband and serial social media jokester Ryan Reynolds.

The “Deadpool” actor was named one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People this year among a list of honorees, including John Legend, who also scored one of the coveted magazine covers. 

To celebrate, Legend, Reynolds and their wives, Chrissy Teigen and Lively, gathered for a gala event with the other 98 honorees on Tuesday night. And that’s where things got interesting.

The “Love Me Now” singer was tapped to perform some of his hits to close out the night, and if you’ve ever heard Legend live before, you know that he’s essentially irresistible to anyone with a pulse in his 50-foot vicinity. 

Lively apparently got a little too close to the magic as she later jokingly shared a photo of her new crush to let Reynolds know he has some competition. 

“Congratulations to the most influential person in my life. The best man I know… you deserve this @time 100 honor,” she captioned a photo of Reynolds standing in front of Legend onstage. “If only my husband wasn’t blocking you in this shot. I’m so sorry @johnlegend.”

What can we say? She learned from the best.

Woman Takes Engagement Photos With Her One True Love: Popeyes Chicken

When it comes to being engaged, Elyse Chelsea Clark is throwing caution to the wind, er, wing.

The New Orleans bartender is such a fan of Popeyes Chicken that she decided to do a series of engagement photos with her favorite fast food.

Then she posted the poultry-centered pics on Facebook with this note: “I’m finally engaged!” 

The Popeyes engagement pics taken by photographer Whitney Tucker show Clark looking romantically at chicken boxes…

Strolling through the park with the object of her affection …

And smooching that box with the same passion that is typically reserved for love’s kiss.

Oh, and she likes the biscuits too.

The photos might be funny, but Clark’s passion for Popeyes is real and true.

“I have a really big love for Popeyes,” she told the New Orleans Times-Picayne. “I eat it all the time.”

The chain responded to Clark’s engagement spread with this tweet.

7 Moving Quotes From Dark-Skinned Women Who Are In Love With Their Melanin

The beauty of dark-skinned women has been atrociously understated for centuries. But fortunately, there’ve been a handful of celebrities and artists who have publicly reclaimed the regality of their brown skin, most recently “Chewing Gum” actress Michaela Coel. 

In an interview with Vibe published Monday, the actress not only declared an appreciation for black womanhood ― despite the setbacks it may present in Hollywood ― she also shared the pride she takes in her skin tone.

“I’m black, I’m dark and I’m f**king beautiful,” Coel said. “My skin is gorgeous, I love myself, people with good eyesight love me too, and the rest of the world can f**k themselves. I’m gonna have a little dark-skinned party over here. I’ll have a good time!”

In honor of Coel’s unabashed self-love, we’ve rounded up other empowering quotes from dark-skinned actresses, poets and musicians who take nothing but pride in their melanin:

(Disclaimer: Determining who qualifies as dark-skinned can be subjective. Most of the following quotes were excerpted from interview segments where the women were discussing the societal implications of being dark-skinned.)

1. “The one thing I feel is lacking in Hollywood today is an understanding of the beauty, the power, the sexuality, the uniqueness, the humor of being a regular black woman.” ― Viola Davis, ESSENCE

2. “I cannot run away from who I am and my complexion or the larger society, and how they may view that.” ― Lupita Nyong’o, Refinery29

3. “I am dripping melanin and honey. I am black without apology.” ― Upile Chisala

4. “That bubble of doubt within? It’s time to stick a pin in it. And wear your dark and lovely face with a grin on it.” ― Princess Latifah, “Pretty For a Dark Skin?

5. “I would tell my 20-year-old self, ‘You were fly, dope and amazing from birth. From the second you took your first breath you were worthwhile and valid and you have to find other ways to feel good about yourself that have nothing to do with being chosen by a man.’” ― Gabrielle Union, xoNecole

6. “Who hasn’t heard the obligatory, ‘You’re pretty for a dark-skin[ned] girl’? Or my personal favorite, ‘I usually don’t date dark-skin[ned] women, but you’re so beautiful.’ … Still, I always knew there were far too many other people who saw my beauty and embraced every part of me with open arms to think twice about what was said.” ― Tika Sumpter, Rolling Out via Hello Beautiful essay 

7. “I remember I went through a period where I didn’t embrace my ‘chocolatiness.’ I don’t know if that’s a word, but I didn’t embrace my chocolate lifestyle. Just being a chocolate, lovely brown-skin girl and being proud of that. I remember Tina Knowles, Bey’s mom, and I remember being out in the sun and I was trying to shield myself from the sun and she said, ‘Are you crazy?’ She said, ‘You are absolutely gorgeous,’ and she just told me how beautiful I was and how rare chocolate is and how gorgeous the skin is, all of this stuff. And I was just like, ‘Yeah!’ Like a light went off. So between her and my mother and then me sitting out in the sun a little more, just to be a little more chocolate. You just embrace it. You embrace everything that you are as a woman, even your flaws too.” ― Kelly Rowland, CNikky.com

11 Things To Know If You Fall In Love With A Teacher

You won’t meet a more dedicated, selfless person than an educator. That makes them a pretty solid choice for a life partner.

But before you settle down with someone who teaches, there are some things you need to know. Below, educators from around the country share 11 very important pointers. 

1. First rule of dating a teacher: Don’t talk about school on the weekend or during the summer. 

“Honor the code of silence. During breaks of any type (long weekends, winter, spring or summer breaks) do not initiate school talk unless the teacher brings it up first. We need these breaks to decompress from the rigors of dealing with 150 different personalities who are all trying to be grown. On a similar note, please change the station immediately when school commercials come on in July.” ― Dave Stieber, a high school social studies teacher in Chicago for 10 years

2. Have dinner ready on Friday night. 

“When your teacher partner walks through the door on Friday night and can’t bear to make one more decision, you’d better have her favorite taqueria on speed dial.” ― Jennifer Wolfe, a middle school teacher for 26 years 

3. And don’t make plans on a Sunday night. 

“Teachers think it’s adorable when people ask us to schedule things for Sunday afternoon. You may as well ask us to grow gills. The weekend officially ends for teachers at 11:59 AM on Sunday, at which point we fling ourselves into all the lesson planning and correcting. Yep, we get to do that while everyone else is binge-watching ‘Game of Thrones.’” ― Robert F. Walsh, a middle school English teacher for 18 years

4. Pretend not to see your teacher S.O. “stealing” supplies from home for school. 

“The supplies students bring in at the beginning of the year don’t last long. Don’t give your teacher a hard time about buying a couple packs of colored pencils each time she goes to the store or taking some of your own home supply. If you really want to make their day, bring them home a pack of glue sticks or pencils or a bag of Jolly Ranchers from the store.” ― Jessica Carlton, a teacher for 12 years 

5. Prepare for the history or math lesson at dinner. 

Forgive them the lectures at the dinner table. They can’t help themselves. You don’t have to listen. Just nod occasionally.”  ― Alan Singer, and director of secondary education social studies at Hofstra University and educator for 46 years  

6. Understand that you need to share your partner with the students.

“Teachers are naturally unselfish people and they are giving themselves all day long to their students and causes and things. Just as the teacher shares him or herself ― the person who loves them must be OK with sharing them with others. Don’t try to make them choose between who they are and loving you. There is enough love to go around.” ― Vicki Davis, a computer science teacher for 15 years 

7. When your S.O. is telling you about a nightmare parent-teacher conference, just listen. 

“In my first year of teaching, I came home many nights, ready to quit, and my wife sat down and listened to me patiently. At the end, she simply said that she was proud of me and asked ‘What can I do to help?’ She gave me opportunity to decompress and find the resilience to keep trying.” ― Owen Griffith, an educator for 12 years

8. It’s totally OK ― in fact, encouraged ― to buy them silly ties. 

“If your significant other is male, buy him funny ties as presents. His students will love them. The only problem is that your children will be embarrassed.” ― Alan Singer 

9. No need to tell your teacher boo “you look tired.” They are 100 percent tired, every day of the week. 

“Cut us some slack if we look sleepy. If a teacher is already looking tired on Monday, it is likely that they spent Sunday preparing for the week and grading papers.” ― Clara G. Herrera, a Texas elementary public school science teacher for five years  

10. Accept that when they say “my kids,” they mean their students, not your children together. 

“My partner and I are both teachers and we have two children of our own. We have learned to stop referring to our students as our kids because it created some confusing situations. Take this example. My partner: ‘Can you believe that one of my kids pulled the fire alarm today?’ Me: ‘Wait, what kid? One of our own children? Do you have other kids that you never told me about?! Oh, you mean one of your students…”  ― Dave Stieber 

11. Help them unwind at the end of the day.

“Teachers give all day long. We probably make between 1,000 and 1,500 decisions per day. We also wear many hats: we can be the school nurse, the principal, the parent and the social worker all in one day. We are constantly giving. We encourage, question, guide, discipline, talk and listen all day long. We rarely have enough time to eat lunch. At the end of the day, I hope you can help me recharge by doing little things: give me one hour at the end of the day to wind down, pick up or make dinner or simply run an errand that I cannot get to in time. Little things help me recharge, and they go a long way.” ― Robyn D. Shulman, an educator for 20 years

Sex-Positive Photos Will Inspire You To Give Your Butt The Love It Deserves

Warning: This article contains many images of butts. Many indeed. 

The Fader magazine recently recruited New York-based photographer Caroline Tompkins for a very serious mission: they needed butt photos and lots of them.

The photos were meant for the magazine’s Love & Sex issue, specifically a piece called “What a Butt Wants,” filled with ass-centric wisdom from experts including a personal trainer, an acupuncturist, and a licensed esthetician. 

It was 2014 that was playfully dubbed “The Year of the Butt” around the internet, honoring women like Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian as its patron saints. Yet many interpreted the designation ― which, in part, correlated to an increase in surgical butt enhancements ― as pop culture appropriating, fetishizing and exploiting black women’s bodies, long criticized for being curvaceous. 

Tompkins worked with Fader’s photo director Emily Keegin and fashion editor Shibon Kennedy to create the series, aptly titled “Butts,” featuring a gorgeous melange of derrieres mugging for the camera.

The series breaks with the exoticizing male gaze often employed by mainstream culture. Instead of privileging a “Platonic Ass,” Tompkins pictures a variety of rears from individuals of all ages, races, genders and sizes. Butts are flat and fat, furry and bare, shiny and matte ― the list goes on ― proving that butts are not a hot commodity or a passing trend, but a real, smushy, sexy body part that deserves love and attention. 

“[Fader] presented [the series] as one part fashion, one part service (how to make your butt happy), and one part just cool sexy butts,” Tompkins explained to website It’s Nice That. “I’ve been making a lot of personal work about female desire and sex lately, so it was super flattering for this assignment to become an extension of that.”

Tompkins asked friends and people she spotted on Instagram to take part in the shoot, enlisting a total of 12 models to rock 29 looks. “I got a lot of cool butt pics texted/emailed to me that week for sure,” she wrote in an email to The Huffington Post.

“We were mostly looking for variety ― size, shape, color, hair/no hair, etc. We were also really happy to get a couple in the mix, as we didn’t want to ask anyone to get down and dirty in anyone else’s butt unless they were already dating each other, you know?”

For the shoot itself, Tompkins took inspiration from artists including Whitney Hubbs, Collier Schorr, Jo Ann Callis and Harry Callahan, as well as snapshots culled from amateur porn archives.

The resulting spread features butts in pants, butts in skirts, butts in thongs, butts in the buff. There are also butts in leggings, butts in fishnets, butts with tattoos, and butts pressed against glass. A true visual butt buffet, the playful series lives where sexy meets silly, the two juxtaposed like cheeks on a rear. 

The images perfectly compliment Fader’s fruitful guide to butt love and maintenance. “My favorite is the last part about buttocks sugaring,” Tompkins added. “That’s all I’m going to say because y’all should check it out. Also, if you’re wondering how we made the butts shiny, it’s mostly baby oil and Vaseline.”

Head to The Fader for more butt play.

Exclusive: Calvin Klein Hosting God’s Love We Deliver Summer Party at Hamptons Home

Calvin Klein is set to host the annual God’s Love We Deliver Midsummer Night Drinks June 10 at his palatial Southampton, N.Y., waterfront home.
This will be the first time the designer has hosted the fund-raiser at his 10-acre seaside property, upon which he constructed a modern glass structure for a reported $ 75 million.
“It didn’t take much convincing since Calvin is such a strong supporter of the cause,” intimated a committee member of GLWD, which prepares and delivers nutritious meals to people living with advanced stages of HIV/AIDS in the New York area. “We’re all just thrilled to see the house,” added the insider.
On March 9, the organization raised $ 1.5 million at the Love Rocks NYC benefit concert at the Beacon Theatre. Emceed by Bill Murray, the sold-out show featured performances by Joe Walsh, Jackson Browne, Mavis Staples and Michael McDonald, among others.
“Play ‘Free Bird,’” shouted one rowdy concertgoer at GLWD President Karen Pearl’s speech ahead of a musical set that concluded with a rousing, yet predictable, rendition of “With a Little Help from My Friends,” featuring a house band led by “Late Show With David Letterman” alums Will Lee and Paul Shaffer.

This Is What It’s Like To Say ‘I Love You’ To Your Partner For The First Time

In every couple, one partner will inevitably be the brave soul to say those three magical words first: “I love you.”

Sometimes it’s totally romantic. Other times? Well, not so much. In a new WatchCut video posted to YouTube on Thursday, 10 couples were asked to describe the first time those words were uttered. 

Sometimes, the other partner said it back:

And sometimes they didn’t:

Austin Couple Turns Their Love of Ice Cream Into Sweet Success: ‘We Know How Happy It Makes People’

Ice cream has always played a sweet role in Chad Palmatier and Anthony Sobotik’s relationship.

In March 2005, when Chad, 43, introduced his then-new boyfriend Anthony, 35, to his family in Lancaster, Pa., the first thing they all did was head to their favorite ice cream corner shop to celebrate. And Sobotik, a self-taught chef, couldn’t get enough of the homemade treat.

“I was fascinated that they were using local ingredients and it was a family-run shop,” he tells PEOPLE.

Three years later, during a visit to Sobotik’s family home in Austin, the pair wanted to go out for ice cream again — but found only chain shops nearby. “And I was like, ‘Why isn’t anyone opening a shop here that uses local milk and cream and all the ingredients we have in Austin?’ ” recalls Sobotik.

So they did. In 2010, the couple sold their home in Ohio, moved to Austin, Texas, and opened Lock Honest Ice Creams with a mandate to use only wholesome ingredients from local farmers. “We want to support our local dairies and farmers,” Sobotik says. “That’s really important to us.”

With Sobotik dreaming up inventive flavors (Cilantro Lime, Texas Sheet Cake and Dewberry Corn Cobler), and Palmatier, a former store designer for Victoria’s Secret, focusing on branding, they’ve learned that starting a business with your partner can take a toll.

“The first year was so stressful,” says Palmatier. “Creating something together is all-consuming, and we were both just exhausted. But we’ve weathered every storm, it’s made us stronger as a couple.”

Three stores later (and a fourth opening this spring), it all comes back to the simple art of scooping. “We make a product that brings joy to people,” says Sobotik. “We know how happy it makes people.” And, of course, themselves. Adds Palmatier, “Anthony will still polish off a pint every now and then!”

How To Love A Messy Person When You’re A Neat Freak

Who cleans and tidies up the house matters in a relationship. In fact, a 2015 study from the University of Alberta found that couples who didn’t split chores had less relationship satisfaction and less sex than couples who divvied up their chores. (Yikes, time to start tidying up, y’all.)

Still, seeing eye-to-eye on chores is easier said than done when you’re hyper organized and your partner lives a life of complete chaos and clutter. How do you bridge that divide and keep your home spick–and–span? Below, marriage therapists and people in messy-organized relationships share their very best advice. 

1. Resist the urge to lecture the messy partner. 

“De-cluttering is so trendy right now, it’s easy to think people who drop their clothes on the floor or treat furniture as filing cabinets are morally inferior to those who crave order. But before you start in with your lecture on how messiness is the root of all evil, consider this: your need to have things tidy and organized might actually be making your partner anxious. How would you respond if your significant other accused you of having OCD? You’d probably feel misunderstood and not particularly motivated to relax your standards. Instead of lecturing, focus on finding ways to address your different needs.” ― Virginia Gilbert, a marriage and family therapist based in Los Angeles

2. Give the messy partner their own messy personal space, whether it’s a room or a drawer.

“If I left my pile of junk mail in the kitchen, my wife would get pretty frustrated, so I leave it in my office with the door closed. This way, the house stays clutter-free. I used to resist having a small space of my own because I thought it shouldn’t be a big deal to leave a few things lying around. Once I realized her cleanliness isn’t some sort of statement against me, it became much easier for each of us to reach a compromise.” ― Nick Pavlidis, author of Confessions Of A Terrible Husband: Lessons Learned from a Lumpy Couch 

3. Create a Google chore calendar. (Don’t forget to send notifications!)

”It’s common for couples to fight about when to take out the garbage or when to do the laundry ― timing issues. These can easily be fixed by having a chore chart or Google doc and letting the family, kids included, choose their own time to knock out their responsibilities.” ― Tina B. Tessina, a psychotherapist and author of How To Be A Couple And Still Be Free 

4. Remember: You love this person, messiness and all. 

“It’s simple: If you have a partner who supports you, loves you unconditionally, helps you take care of the kids and pay the bills, is kind to your mother and even does your Costco returns, cut them some slack for the underwear by the bed.” ― Galina Nemirovsky, writer at Hearts Everywhere

5. Make a joke out of it. 

“Don’t get stuck in the mud when you find yourself frustrated by the mess. Find humor in the situation. This is who you married. If you can, laugh with your partner about their disorganized ways.” ― Anne Crowley, a psychologist in Austin, Texas

6. Come to a clutter compromise.

“I’m the tidier spouse. To make our marriage last ― and we celebrate 15 years in 2017 ― we’ve had to agree to meet halfway on a number of issues. I no longer complain about the toilet paper roll not being replaced. I’m also less interested in changing her behavior now than I am in helping her understand that for me, to be happy at home there needs to be a base level of order. She, in turn, promised to not leave her cups of half empty tea scattered around the home ― I despise the smell of old tea ― and to respect the man my mother made me: a guy who can not relax if jackets are strewn about the sofa or shoes aren’t side-bye-side by the front door.”  ― Jeff Bogle, blogger at Out With The Kid

7. Ask your partner to be more organized and be OK with their version of neat. 

“I ask my neat and orderly clients to stand back and look at how they came up with the idea that things should be a certain way in the first place. I also tell them if messiness causes them anxiety, they have three choices that are healthy: One: Straighten up the place with a loving heart. Two: Make a request of your partner to be more organized, but be OK with whatever results from this. And lastly, learn to overcome any anxiety their rules are creating for them.” ― Becky Whetstone, a marriage family therapist in Little Rock, Arkansas

8. Recognize that your messy spouse may be set in his or her way. 

“As far as I’m concerned, everything has a place and there is a place for everything. When I need a pair of pliers or some Super Glue, I know where to find it almost instantly. My wife will open some packaged item with a pair of scissors and leave the scissors and package remains on the table and walk away. I know there is no way to change her; it’s either in her DNA, or it’s a can’t-teach-an-old -dog-new-tricks thing.” ― Bill Flanigin, writer and teacher

9. If you’re the messy partner, try to contain the chaos.

“My partner can sometimes be overwhelmed by all the stuff everywhere. Once a day, I shift my perspective and see the mess as my husband might. I spend 10 minutes consolidating the chaos, whether that be finishing the task, putting the shoes away or simply adding the paperwork to my ever-growing personal to-do pile. This goes a long way toward creating a peaceful space for my husband.” ― Kate Chapman, writer at The Life In Process

 10. Have a sense of humor about the situation.

“When I put away the clothes my partner has left hanging over a chair or on a banister or on the floor, I treat is like a rose-petal trail of sorts. A dirty, ragged, rose-petal trail. As I go through the house doing this I think to myself, ‘she left this in this very spot because she wants me to feel close to her even when I am not.’ Sure, most of the time she is eight feet away from me as I pick these things up but it can become quite the romantic adventure to think that one day, I’ll pick up a pair of socks, look up and see a candlelit dinner set out on top of the washing machine.” ― Mike Reynolds, blogger at Puzzling Posts

Warren Buffett Reveals Longstanding Love of Chinese Suit Maker

HONG KONG – Steve Jobs had Issey Miyake black turtlenecks. Warren Buffett has Trands suits.
Earlier this week, the American investor may have confessed that he’s “baffled by retail” but there was a time when he actually thought of venturing into the fashion business.
A long-standing love affair with suits made by Chinese company Dalian Dayang Trands had the Berkshire Hathaway chairman and chief executive officer “thinking of opening up a men’s clothing store.”
In a segment that aired on CNBC earlier this week, the 86-year-old businessman fielded a question from a viewer: “How many suits do you have at home?” The viewer estimated that the famously frugal investor, who still lives in his original Omaha, Nebraska home, had about five in his closet.
“He would be right except for the fact that I met a woman in Dalian, China many years ago, Madam Li,” Buffett answered.

He went on to describe his 2007 encounter with Li during a visit to the northeastern Chinese city. Li sent her staff to surprise Buffett at his hotel and to take his measurements so that she could gift him some suits. The move worked and he’s been a fan ever since, even getting

How Loving v. Virginia Blazed The Trail For Sweet Love Stories Like This One

When the historic Loving v. Virginia case legalized interracial marriage in America in 1967, it changed the lives of countless individuals ― many of whom wouldn’t realize it until decades later. Bryan Sells and Deneta Howland were children when the Lovings won their Supreme Court battle to legally marry, but the impact of the case would become deeply personal for the two in 2007.

Bryan and Deneta’s story begins in 1989, when they met in college. For Deneta, the friendship was simply platonic.

“I honestly thought, ‘Well, he’s a nice guy,’ but I wasn’t going to date outside my race,” she told “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in 2008. “I had these ideas about how I wanted my life to be: I knew I wanted brown babies and I was going to marry a black person.”

At first, Deneta’s life seemed as if could be headed in that direction. She and Bryan went their separate ways after graduation and began successful careers ― he became a civil rights attorney in Montgomery, Ala., and she became a doctor in Memphis, Tenn. But, 10 years later, Deneta had the urge to visit Montgomery to go on Civil Rights tours. So, she emailed Bryan out of the blue.

Upon reconnecting, Bryan planned out a weekend of Civil Rights tours for Deneta’s visit. When the two began exploring those historical sites, Deneta noticed something about her old friend.

“I guess I was surprised throughout our seeing all these different sites just how much they touched him personally,” Deneta says. “I saw a little piece of his heart.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.’s words began echoing in her head as well.

“When I think about Dr. King’s speeches and all the words that he said, the ones that keep coming back to me is his part in ‘I Have a Dream’ speech about being judged not by the color of our skin, but by the content of our character,” Deneta says. “I was attracted to Bryan’s character and attracted to who he was as a person, and realized I’d been judging him by the color of his skin for 10 years.”

Seven years after that visit, Bryan and Deneta wed.

“It was the Lovings,” Deneta said, “who blazed the trail.”

The ‘Love Actually’ Mini-Sequel Won’t Include Alan Rickman Or Emma Thompson

Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson’s storyline was perhaps the most heartbreaking of the 2003 ensemble “Love Actually.” When Harry (Rickman) attracts attention from his young secretary ― spoiler! ― his wife and the devoted mother of his children, Karen (Thompson), finds out after realizing a necklace he’d bought wasn’t a gift for her. Instead, she’d received instead a decidedly unsexy Joni Mitchell CD, and their marriage is left strained. 

Unfortunately for fans, the upcoming mini-sequel to the hit film won’t fill us in on what Harry and Karen have been up to.

According to director Richard Curtis, the new script won’t include Thompson or a tribute to Rickman, who died in 2016, per Digital Spy. It’s just too tough.

“You know, dealing with Alan is very complicated,” Curtis told the Press Association, so a tribute is “not really” part of the plan. He also confirmed the actress won’t be able to participate.

The project, announced last week, will be made in celebration of Red Nose Day, a biennial event that supports the British charity Comic Relief that Curtis co-founded in 1985. Original cast members including Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, Liam Neeson, Andrew Lincoln, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Rowan Atkinson are all set to appear ― so at least we’ll find out what happened after that creepy nighttime cue-card scene between Juliet (Knightley) and her husband’s best friend, Mark. (Lincoln, who played Mark, has said his character “is a stalker.”)

“It’ll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and recreating their characters 14 years later,” Curtis said in a statement last week.

It’s set to air March 24 on BBC One and May 25 on NBC.

Love Takes Action: An Astrological View

For the past two years, my HuffPost blogs have focused on astrology and the myriad ways this ancient art is helpful and meaningful for life today. I was galvanized by HuffPost’s call for articles under the heading #LoveTakesAction. It is an antidote to the swirling hate around us in these fractious and difficult times and I am happy to contribute. Personally, and in my astrology practice, I am encouraging people to focus on what they can do without becoming overwhelmed by the fray, the double talk, and polarization we find all around us.

The first category HuffPost suggested is ways people take action to show and even mobilize love. Each astrological sign takes action in different ways and hewing to your own resonant talents and ability will maximize your effectiveness and keep your energy balanced.

Aries: Leads the campaign and marches. He is a natural warrior for justice.

Taurus: Raises money for organizations that matter and promotes concrete goals towards tolerance and peace.

Gemini: Disseminates real information that encourages people to think and take action.

Cancer: Nurtures those who come across their path whether in a soup kitchen, shelter, or random encounters.

Leo: Dramatizes with very public and heartfelt performances which portray the world you want to live in.

Virgo: Analyzes and categorizes information to discern the actual facts and communicates this information clearly.

2017-02-13-1487000444-7693330-zodiacsigns.jpg

Libra: Engages with tact and diplomacy in relationships, action and dialogue that try to balance love and hate while taking a middle course.

Scorpio: Transforms him or herself with radical, personal actions that serve as a model for passionate tolerance of all the forms love can take.

Sagittarius: Teaches through conversation and ideas that laughter and good humor can overcome obstacles.

Capricorn: Organizes business structures based on responsible solutions and ecological solutions for all people.

Aquarius: Creates a circle of friends and common-minded people who act together on social projects.

Pisces: Works with charitable and religious organizations that reach out with compassion to the neediest.

These suggestions are calls to love action for each sign. I hope they resonate with you and enhance your quest for a more harmonious world.

21 Quotes That Show The Radical Power Of Love

For HuffPost’s #LoveTakesAction series, we’re telling stories of how people are standing up to hate and supporting those most threatened. What will you stand up for? Tell us with #LoveTakesAction.

Love has the power to create bonds, forge community, ignite a spark that galvanizes people into action. Writers, activists and thought leaders have long used words to light that spark. Through prose and speeches and essays, history and her chronologers have taught us that love is a force to be reckoned with. 

To honor the radical power of love this Valentine’s Day, The Huffington Post rounded up 21 of our favorite quotes about love to remind us that where there is love there is hope. 

1. “Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”

― Martin Luther King Jr., “Where Do We Go From Here?” Sermon (1967)

2. “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation and that is an act of political warfare.”

― Audre Lorde, A Burst Of Light: Essays (1988)

3. “Love is not a being word, it is an action word… When you see hate out there, understand that the challenge will never be the hate of some, but the silence, indifference and apathy of the many.”

― Sen. Cory Booker, Twitter (2017) 

4. “Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love.” 

― Leo Tolstoy, Where Love Is, God Is (1855)

5. “Here and now ― I love you, for this moment, you have my heart. But you are not entitled to my future  ―  you have no ownership of my past.”

― Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure (2013)

6. “I swear I couldn’t love you more than I do right now, and yet I know I will tomorrow.”

― Leo Christopher, Sleeping In Chairs (2015)

7. “Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic.”

― Marty McConnell, Frida Kahlo to Marty McConnell (2009)

8. “Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”

― Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum (2006)

9. “I have decided to stick to love… Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

― Martin Luther King Jr., “Where Do We Go From Here?” Sermon (1967)

10. “Love is our essential nutrient. Without it, life has little meaning. It’s the best thing we have to give and the most valuable thing we receive. It’s worthy of all the hullabaloo.”

― Cheryl Strayed, Dear Sugar column (2011)

11. “I am too full of life to be half-loved.”

― Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions For Ada (2015)

12. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”

― Martin Luther King Jr., “Love Your Enemies” Sermon (1957)

13. “You will learn a lot about yourself if you stretch in the direction of goodness, of bigness, of kindness, of forgiveness, of emotional bravery. Be a warrior for love.”

― Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice On Love And Life From Dear Sugar (2012)

14. “All religious institutions, despite different philosophical views, all have the same message ― a message of love.”

― Dalai Lama, WGNO speech on religious harmony (2013)

15. “We must discover the power of love, the power, the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that we will be able to make of this old world a new world. We will be able to make men better. Love is the only way.”

― Martin Luther King Jr., “Love Your Enemies” Sermon (1957)

16. “Her love was full-throated and all-encompassing and unadorned. Every day she blew through her entire reserve.”

― Cheryl Strayed, Wild (2013)

17. “We know what the world wants from us. We know we must decide whether to stay small, quiet, and uncomplicated or allow ourselves to grow as big, loud, and complex as we were made to be. Every girl must decide whether to be true to herself or true to the world. Every girl must decide whether to settle for adoration or fight for love.”

― Glennon Doyle Melton, Love Warrior: A Memoir (2016)

18. “Love trumps hate.”

― Hillary Clinton, Democratic Nominee Acceptance Speech (2016)
