Justin Bieber’s Manager Says He Once Feared Singer Would Die from ‘So Much Crap in His System’

Scooter Braun says that he once thought Justin Bieber would die in his sleep.

The music manager, 37, opened up about the “What Do You Mean?” singer’s dark past in a wide-ranging interview on Van Lathan’s The Red Pill podcast.

“I thought he was going to die,” Braun said candidly about Bieber, 24, in the discussion released Wednesday. “I thought he was going to go to sleep one night and have so much crap in his system that he would not wake up the next morning.”

Braun explained, “There was a time where I would go to sleep almost every night, when he had the money to fly away from me, and I was worried every night that I was going to lose him.”

Braun said he tried to save Bieber by keeping him from his music. “That was the time where I was telling him he’s not allowed to work,” Braun recalled. “And he used to yell and scream at me. He wanted to put music out, he wanted to tour, but I thought if he did that, he would die. So I just refused. We weren’t making any money … I didn’t want him to work because I wanted him to get healthy.”

Braun says that Bieber, who is engaged to Hailey Baldwin, is now in a much healthier place, all thanks to Bieber’s own determination. “I think that he made a conscious choice for himself to change,” Braun shared. “It wasn’t until one day he woke up and said, ‘Hey, I need to talk to you. I don’t want to be this person anymore.’ He made the decision to change and actually put that into action. The result is who he’s become today.”

In March 2013, after a week in which Bieber was treated for shortness of breath mid-show and lunged at a photographer, a source told PEOPLE, “He’s wildin’ out. On a scale of hot sauce, he’s a mild, but his money is so hot, it can get him anything.”

The next month, police raided Bieber’s tour bus in Sweden and confiscated drugs.

Then, in January 2014, Bieber’s home was raided by police after he allegedly threw eggs at a neighbor’s house.

Weeks later, he was arrested in Miami for DUI. “Mr. Bieber made a statement that he had consumed some alcohol, and that he had been smoking marijuana and had consumed some prescription medication,” a Miami Beach Police spokesperson said at the time.

“The people close to him try, but he’s a mess,” an industry source told PEOPLE in 2014. “He acts as though he’s never heard the word ‘no’ and he thinks he’s God.”

Speaking on Lathan’s The Red Pill podcast, Braun reflected on the scrutiny Bieber’s behavior received. “I think Justin is an extraordinary young man who has been given an extraordinary life, and because of that he cannot complain that he’s held to extraordinary standards,” Braun said. “He used to complain, he used to fight it, and that’s kind of what got him into a dark place.”

Braun continued, “But when he accepted his responsibility and took a hard look at himself and not what everyone else was doing, that’s when he owned it, and he got healthy, and he got better, and he made the choice to change.”

N.J. Couple Accused of Spending Homeless Man’s GoFundMe Donations Could Be Indicted, Lawyer Says

An attorney for a New Jersey couple accused of spending thousands of a homeless man’s GoFundMe donations could be indicted, according to their lawyer, who has has filed a motion saying he and his firm may no longer be able to continue representation, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

What began as a feel-good story has turned into a criminal investigation after Johnny Bobbitt, a 35-year-old homeless veteran living in Philadelphia, accused Kate McClure, 28, and her 39-year-old boyfriend Mark D’Amico of spending the more than $ 400,000 they raised for him on GoFundMe on lavish vacations and a new BMW.

Now, the couple’s lawyer has told a Burlington County judge that he and his law firm could possibly step down from representing the pair, holding that either McClure, D’Amico, or both will likely be indicted in the headline-making case.

“Since it is expected that one or both of the Defendants will likely be indicted, my firm and I will no longer be able to continue our representation of them in this matter,” the couple’s attorney, Ernest Badway, wrote in a motion filed Friday in Burlington County Superior Court. “(However, we are not seeking that relief at this time, we merely wanted to make the Court aware of the potential future development.)”

Badway declined to comment on the motion, but indicates to PEOPLE that he is currently representing McClure and D’Amico.

He noted in the motion that D’Amico and McClure are “unable to defend themselves or respond in any meaningful way” to requests to know where the remaining funds went because their financial and business records have been seized by prosecutors.

The motion came to light in a deposition on Monday, but was dated Thursday, according to CBS News — the same day the Florence Police Department raided McClure and D’Amico’s home, and seized their BMW in what Burlington County Prosecutor Scott A. Coffina declared a “criminal investigation.”

RELATED STORY: GoFundMe Donors Speak Out as Couple Is Accused of Spending Homeless Man’s Money: ‘Despicable’

Officials with the prosecutors office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from PEOPLE. However, no charges have been filed against the couple, according to CBS.

Burlington County Superior Court Judge Paula Dow on Monday granted Badway’s request to stay the civil suit, halting legal proceedings through Dec. 7 due to the criminal investigation.

Bobbitt, originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, first met McClure last October, when her car ran out of gas on Interstate 95 in Philadelphia. Bobbitt famously spent his last $ 20 to buy gas for McClure. Moved by his kindness, she and D’Amico set up a GoFundMe page to help Bobbitt get back on his feet. More than 14,000 donated a total of $ 402,706 to the man.

The motion follows a string of twists in the case. Just days before police searched McClure and D’Amico’s home, an attorney for the couple told Dow that the remainder of Bobbitt’s massive sum is gone.

“It is safe to say that we were shocked and concerned when their lawyer told us Tuesday that there was no money left,” Bobbitt’s attorney, Jacqueline Promislo, previously told PEOPLE. “We are now doing some discovery on an emergency basis to try to figure out where the money went but at this time we have no further information.”

RELATED STORY: Homeless Vet Will Get $ 400K in GoFundMe Donations Despite Couple’s Alleged Fraud, Lawyer Says

The couple had been ordered to hand the money over to Bobbitt’s attorneys, but never did. In a complaint filed by his attorney and obtained by PEOPLE, Bobbitt accused the couple of fraud and conspiracy, alleging that the couple spent most of the funds on vacations to Las Vegas, Florida, and California, along with a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon and a new BMW for McClure.

McClure and D’Amico have denied the allegations and spoke about the incident last week on Megyn Kelly Today, claiming that they went above and beyond to track down the man’s birth certificate and get him identification.

“He was our family. He is our family. I still think, to this day, that he is our family,” McClure told Kelly. McClure spoke through tears as she claimed the couple’s been receiving death threats.

GoFundMe officials are working with authorities in the matter, and have set up an account with $ 20,000 with Bobbitt’s lawyers, according to Good Morning America. Officials with the fundraising site announced that Bobbitt will receive a portion of the donations as a result of their GoFundMe Guarantee program, a policy that ensures recipients receive their money, or those who have donated receive refunds in the event of “campaign misuse.”

Billie Jean King Says Serena Williams Is Treated Differently Than Male Athletes as WTA Backs Her

After Serena Williams‘ controversial loss to Japan’s Naomi Osaka at Saturday’s U.S. Open Women’s Final — during which Williams received three violations and confronted the chair umpire, whom she called a “thief” — tennis great Billie Jean King is addressing major factors that she says played a role in how the game transpired: Williams’ gender and race.

King, 74, writes in an op-ed The Washington Post published Sunday, “The ceiling that women of color face on their path to leadership never felt more impenetrable than it did at the women’s U.S. Open final on Saturday.”

Williams, 36, was fined $ 17,000 from her $ 1.85 million prize money for her three violations: $ 10,000 for verbally abusing the umpire, Carlos Ramos; $ 4,000 for receiving a warning about coaching; and $ 3,000 for breaking a racket. Critics called some of the punishments sexist, claiming that males exhibit the same emotion on the court without being penalized.

“What was supposed to be a memorable moment for tennis, with Serena Williams, perhaps the greatest player of all time, facing off against Naomi Osaka, the future of our sport, turned into another example of people in positions of power abusing that power,” argues King, the 39-time Grand Slam winner who was portrayed by Emma Stone in the 2017 biopic Battle of the Sexes.

RELATED: From Her Tough U.S. Open Loss to Battling Sexism: Serena Williams’ Hard Road to Tennis Fame

After receiving the game penalty for court violation, Williams told Ramos, “You will never, ever, ever be on another court of mine as long as you live. You are the liar. When are you going to give me my apology? You owe me an apology. Say it. Say you’re sorry. … And you stole a point from me. You’re a thief, too!”

As King sees it, Ramos treated Williams differently than how he would treat male tennis pros. “Women are treated differently in most arenas of life,” writes King for the Post. “This is especially true for women of color. And what played out on the court yesterday happens far too often. It happens in sports, in the office and in public service. Ultimately, a woman was penalized for standing up for herself. A woman faced down sexism, and the match went on.”

RELATED: Serena Williams Loses at U.S. Open, Lashes Out at Umpire Over Cheating Penalty: ‘You’re a Thief’

For King, Williams’ struggle — and the way she reacted to it — is a teachable moment for women. “I understand what motivated Williams to do what she did,” King writes for the Post. “And I hope every single girl and woman watching yesterday’s match realizes they should always stand up for themselves and for what they believe is right. Nothing will ever change if they don’t.”

On Saturday, Williams’ was given a third violation for illegal coaching from her player box during the first set against Osaka, 20. Williams told Ramos, “I don’t cheat to win, I’d rather lose. I’m just letting you know.”

“If tennis would catch up with the 21st century and allow coaching on every point, the situation on the court would never have escalated to the level of absurdity that it did,” writes King for the Post. “Every player, after all, still has to play the match — she has to execute on every point, and she should never be held responsible for the actions of a coach. Coaching happens all the time, at all levels of tennis. So why not just allow it?”

King cites her personal experience in the Post piece, explaining how she relates to Williams: “I found myself in similar situations in my career; once, I even walked off the court in protest. It wasn’t my proudest moment, but it may have been one of my more powerful ones.”

Ultimately, writes King in the Post, “Ramos crossed the line. He made himself part of the match. He involved himself in the end result. An umpire’s job is to keep control of the match, and he let it get out of control. The rules are what they are, but the umpire has discretion, and Ramos chose to give Williams very little latitude in a match where the stakes were highest.”

However, King notes in the Post, “Williams could have taken some responsibility and moved on after the first warning (and, speaking from experience, it’s debatable whether she knew this was a warning or not), and before the point and game penalties started flying.”

Another tennis great also came to Williams’ defense this past weekend: Novak Djokovic, 31, who won the U.S. Open Men’s Final on Sunday night. When asked what he thought about the incident between the 23-time Grand Slam winner and Ramos, he responded, “I have my personal opinion that maybe the chair umpire should not have pushed Serena to the limit, especially in a Grand Slam final … He did change the course of the match. It was, in my opinion, maybe unnecessary. We all go through our emotions, especially when you’re fighting for a Grand Slam trophy.”

As accusations of sexism continue to fly at tennis officials and institutions from players and fans alike, the Women’s Tennis Association elected to side with Williams. WTA CEO Steve Simon showed support in a statement released on the organization’s website.

“Yesterday also brought to the forefront the question of whether different standards are applied to men and women in the officiating of matches,” wrote Simon. “The WTA believes that there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men vs. women and is committed to working with the sport to ensure that all players are treated the same. We do not believe that this was done last night.”

Once the match concluded, Williams didn’t shake the umpire’s hand and she continued demanding an apology as the crowd roared with boos.

During the post-match trophy ceremony, Williams addressed the crowd, saying, “Well, I don’t want to be rude, I don’t want to do questions. played well, this is her first Grand Slam. I know you guys were here rooting. Let’s make this the best moment we can. Let’s not boo anymore. We’re gonna get through this and we’re gonna be positive. No more booing!”

Fighting back tears after the match, Osaka said, “I know that everybody was cheering for her. I’m sorry it had to end like this. I just want to say thank you for watching the match.”

King also showed support for Osaka in her Post piece, writing, “Lost in the craziness of the evening was the fact that Osaka played excellent tennis and won her first major title. Competing against her childhood idol, she summoned her A game and earned her championship — no need for any asterisk in the record book. She was the best player on the court Saturday.”

Ariana Grande Says Fiancé Pete Davidson ‘Ticks Every Box,’ Reveals They’ll Likely Marry in 2019

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson just knew.

In interview with Michael Strahan for Good Morning America on Wednesday, the singer, 25, revealed why she considers the Saturday Night Live star her soul mate.

“It’s just like a feeling, you know?” Grande told Strahan before laughing to herself, adding, “That’s so cheesy. People are always like, ‘When you know you know,’ and you’re like, ‘Yeah, okay, whatever.’ ”

Strahan further pressed the pop star, asking for specifics. “You just feel it… He just ticks every box, and it gets better every day,” she responded. “I’m very grateful for him. Life is beautiful.”

Grande also admitted she knows all eyes are on her and Davidson, 24, when they step out, saying, “We’re so annoying, huh?… It must be the worst.”

“We’re just grateful, enjoying every minute because life’s too short,” Grande added.

Up next for the couple? Wedding planning — though Grande told GMA the couple is “taking their time.”

“My friends and I, and my mom and everybody have been brainstorming and sharing ideas,” she said. “It’s really fun. I work so much I’ve never spent so much time planning something that’s personal, that feeds my soul so much and my heart. I’m gonna cry. I’m just so excited.”

Grande said that the pair won’t make their trek down the aisle soon, though, teasing, “It’s gonna be like, next year.”

The star also opened up about her new album, Sweetener, released on August 17, and the much-discussed track named after Davidson — a song, she told Strahan, she wrote as a “love letter.”

During the interview, Grande spoke with Strahan about grappling with the terrorist attack at her concert in Manchester in May 2017, which killed 22 people.

RELATED: Ariana Grande Breaks Down in Tears Over ‘Scary’ Manchester Attack: ‘Be There for Each Other’

“I wanted to kind of subliminally honor the Manchester victims,” she said about a track on her new album, “Get Well Soon.” Continued Grande, “I wanted to make the length of the song five minutes and 22 seconds as a way to celebrate and honor them and their lives, because that song is about healing. It’s supposed to be a great big musical hug for anybody going through anything dark.”

NORTH FACE’S NEW ASCENTS: Walls have all sorts of undertones, given the politically charged immigration debate. With its “Walls Are Meant for Climbing” initiative, The North Face is trying to get people to look at walls in a new way.
With this program and free climbing classes on Aug. 18’s Global Climbing Day, the company is trying to get people to look at walls as a way to unite people rather than divide them. The North Face is continuing its partnership with The Trust for Public Land to support the installation of public climbing walls in underserved communities. Last month, The North Face opened its first free, public bouldering wall in the Montbello Open Space Park near Denver. Last year’s Global Climbing Day featured 20,000 participants and this year’s goal is 100,000, according to Tom Herbst, global vice president of marketing at The North Face. “We want this day to be a reminder of the type of community we all want to live, work and play in — one that is inclusive, inspiring and unifying.”
The North Face has also signed up to sponsor Psicobloc, the 2018 Deep Water Solo Climbing Series, which starts this weekend in Park City, and continues Aug.

Mark Hamill Says His ‘Final Chapter’ of Star Wars Will Be ‘Bittersweet’ Without Carrie Fisher

Mark Hamill is paying tribute to Carrie Fisher before his return to Star Wars.

The 66-year-old actor Tweeted on Sunday about his return to the franchise and shared some pictures of his time with Fisher in the previous movies. The two starred as twins Luke and Leia through 5 previous Star Wars films.

“It’s bittersweet facing my final chapter without her-She is simply irreplaceable,” he wrote. “I’m finding solace in the fact that she won’t BE replaced & would love the worldwide outpouring of affection from those who loved her when they heard the news.”

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

On Friday, Disney and Lucasfilm revealed the official cast list for the ninth trip to a galaxy far, far away and it contained one major surprise: Fisher is back as Leia, despite her shocking death in 2016.

According to the studio’s online announcement, production on the newest Star Wars adventure is expected to commence on Aug. 1, and Fisher is among the listed cast members returning for the film, thanks to some unused footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  

Returning director J.J. Abrams, who co-wrote the script for Episode IX alongside Chris Terrio, said in a statement, “We desperately loved Carrie Fisher. Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honor Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.”

Fisher died December, 2016 at age 60 of a cardiac arrest.

Carole Radziwill Says She Walked Away from Something That Went Against Her Values After RHONY Exit

Carole Radziwill is asking fans what they would do if they were in her shoes.

On Friday, just days after announcing her departure from the Real Housewives of New York, the reality star polled her Instagram followers to see whether they would follow their hearts or put their bank accounts first.

In an Instagram Story, Radziwill, 54, posed a question to her fans, “If you were doing something that was forcing you to do things that went against your own value system would you walk away regardless of the pay? Its a tough decision.”

After fans overwhelming voted “yes” on her survey, the journalist wrote, “So 80% would walk away from something that went against their own values.”

It was a decision, she told fans, that she was forced to make recently.

“That’s how I felt this past year too. It’s difficult but life is long and you can’t always play the short game,” the star added.

It appears she is very happy with that decision, as the best-selling author was beaming in the photograph.

The smiling star looked chic but casual in a pair of ripped jeans and a white T-shirt as she soaked in some sun during her vacation in Aspen, Colorado.

“I am sure this does not come as a surprise to any of the viewers, all of whom have been supportive, encouraging, and kind. My original curiosity about reality television has waned over the years and I am focusing on TV and writing projects that better suit my more steady temperament,” Radziwill told PEOPLE in a statement on Wednesday.

PEOPLE learned that her ongoing feud with Bethenny Frankel also influenced her choice, as indicated by the portion of her statement in which she said she was “thrilled to leave frenemies behind.”

“They never seemed to be able to reconcile. The show couldn’t go on another season with both of them at each other’s throats. And Bethenny’s an OG. She’s been there since the beginning. She’s a , but she gives the show a lot of energy,” a source tells PEOPLE. “There’s no way they’re going to do it without her. Last time she left, the show went to hell.”

However, one production source insists that as far as producers are concerned, Radziwill could have chosen to stay: “She was not pushed to leave. She left on her own accord.”

RELATED ARTICLE: RHONY’s Dorinda Medley Predicted Luann de Lesseps’ Relapse: ‘She’ll Be Drinking in 3 Months’

She ended her statement with sincerity and wit. “I have worked with amazing producers, made great friends, and I’m thrilled to leave frenemies behind,” Radziwill wrote. “I will remember this entire experience with delight, humor, and a veracious accuracy. Next.”

In RHONY‘s tenth season, airing now, Radziwill has had a pretty epic fallout with Frankel, though she’s still friendly with Tinsley Mortimer, Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps.

On Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen Wednesday, Ramona Singer told Cohen she’s “sad” to see Radziwill go.

“I love Carole inside and out. I think she’s really warm, special, down to earth, truthful, giving, kind, supportive of women, genuine, smart fabulous. I’m like, ‘Wow.’ I’m going to miss not being with her doing the next season. It’s going to be a void,” Singer said, shaking her head. “This is going to be a void for me,” Singer added.

Luann de Lesseps Says She’s 6 Months Sober as She Reunites with First Husband and Kids

Luann de Lesseps says she’s six months sober.

The Real Housewives of New York City star took to Instagram to document the milestone day, which she spent in Sag Harbor, New York, with her first husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps and their two kids, Noel and Victoria.

“Greatest reunion ever!” she captioned a photo of her and the Count. “Wonderful to spend the weekend with the kids and The Count. Also counting my blessings! Celebrating 6 months of sobriety! Happy 4th of July, everyone! @noeldelesseps @victoriadelesseps #onedayatatime #lovemyfamily #grateful #rhony #countess.”

De Lesseps, 53, was arrested last Christmas Eve in Palm Beach, Florida, and charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant. (She’s since pleaded not guilty and rejected a plea deal in February.)

She later apologized for the incident, admitting that being back in Palm Beach for the first time since she tied the knot with Tom D’Agostino Jr. before divorcing him seventh months later had “brought up long-buried emotions.”

She entered a treatment facility and began focusing on her personal wellbeing.

Speaking to PEOPLE in April, the Bravo star opened up about how she explained the arrest to her kids.

“I told my children I did something that I am not proud of, and I asked them to forgive me,” she said. “They were like, ‘We don’t care about that. We don’t care about what people think. We know who you are, and we love you and we’re here.’ They were great.”

Along with her kids, de Lesseps said she could count on her fellow Housewives to be there for her — regardless of the drama always being stirred up on screen.

“The Housewives can be really bitchy sometimes, but when push comes to shove and you’re down and you need to be picked up, the ladies were right there for me,” she said.

Despite what the incident cost her, de Lesseps said she found a silver lining and hasn’t resumed drinking.

“Unless I was humiliated publicly, I don’t think I would have done anything,” she said. “This was a warning. It was meant to happen so that I could take a step back and look at myself in a different way. I’m grateful to the universe for making me change my life.”

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

Evangeline Lilly Says She Was Going Through ‘a Pretty Dark Time’ During Lost

Evangeline Lilly is known worldwide for her role on J.J. Abrams’ fan favorite show Lost. Despite its success and multiple Emmy wins, the British Columbia native didn’t have a blast during the making of it.

“I was never enamored by the idea of fame,” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, admitting she went through “a pretty dark time” coming to terms with being a public figure.

For more about Lilly, check out this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now.

In fact, she planned on retiring from acting after Lost ended in 2010, and for two years enjoyed life off the grid, moving to Hawaii with her partner, Norman Kali, who worked in film production and is now a stay-at-home dad.

She took up surfing and wrote scripts and children’s books. She also settled into the role of mom, having two sons.But when Peter Jackson offered her a role in The Hobbit movie, she couldn’t turn it down.

Lilly says she had to find a way to “make peace” with working in Hollywood and “embrace all the things that made me uncomfortable.”

That includes headlining her second Marvel movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp, out Friday.

“I had to find a place in which I could be happy,” she says. “And now I very much am.”

Volvo Says Americans Are Shifting Their Luxury Thinking

Are American consumers shifting their thinking of what luxury means?
Volvo Car USA thinks so. Volvo, which is repositioning the brand into the luxury space, partnered with The Harris Poll to get some insight on American attitudes on different themes, such as design, safety, technology and environment. The latest study on luxury indicates that Americans are rethinking their attitudes toward their possessions, looking to streamline and declutter their lives. The poll was conducted from April 26 to May 1, surveying more than 2,014 U.S. adults over the age of 18.
According to the study, 82 percent of Americans agree that people have too much stuff, while a slightly higher percentage at 85 percent said they are actively working to declutter and simplify their spaces. That includes 49 percent looking to declutter their bedrooms, while 34 percent are looking to streamline their wardrobes. Millennials in particular at 60 percent said they have more stuff than they did 10 years ago.
The study also found that respondents are saying they are shifting away from quantity, with 68 percent agreeing that “when it comes to modern luxury, less is more.” The latter has impacted purchase volumes and frequency in connection with how they spend for “modern

Twin Peaks Creator David Lynch Says Trump Could Be ‘One of the Greatest Presidents in History’

David Lynch thinks Donald Trump‘s presidency has disrupted the America’s political system in a good way.

The Twin Peaks creator and director spoke to The Guardian about his political leanings, revealing that he voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary and thinks he voted Libertarian in the election. But although he didn’t support Trump, he now feels the real estate mogul’s administration could change the country for the better.

“He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much,” Lynch said. “No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way.”

While Lynch says he supports an outsider changing things, he doesn’t think Trump is doing a good job himself. He just hopes his win opens the door to more options to serve as president.

“Our so-called leaders can’t take the country forward, can’t get anything done,” Lynch said. “Like children, they are. Trump has shown all this.

Serena Williams Says Daughter Olympia Inspires Her to Speak Out Against Domestic Violence

For tennis star Serena Williams, joining the fight against domestic and financial violence is crucial to not only being a strong role model, but to being a mother to 9-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia.

The athlete has teamed up with Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse initiative where she aims to be a powerful voice to speak up for others who may not be able to.

“These women probably can’t use their voice so it’s important for them to know that there are people out there that are using their voice and letting them know that there is a place, that we can do something about it,” the superstar said at an event for the initiative on Wednesday.

According to Allstate, one in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, with 99 percent of cases being financial abuse. As a new mother, these shocking statistics really hit home, Williams, 36, told PEOPLE.

“Having a daughter means that she’s one in four. Hopefully those stats don’t go up by the time she’s dating and meeting people, but they can if you don’t make people aware of it,” she said.

RELATED: Prepare to ‘Aww’: Inside the Cuddly Life of Serena Williams’ Daughter, Alexis Olympia

Williams recalled wanting to join Purple Purse after realizing how little she knew about the subject, figuring that many other people were in the dark about the issue as well.

“ is a subject that people are not really comfortable talking about, but sometimes talking about the uncomfortable is what we have to do,” Williams said. “We’re doing that now with Me Too, with Times Up, and I feel like we’re making those steps. We want to make this a movement.”

As a frequent advocate for women’s rights and equal pay in sports, Williams doesn’t shy away from reminding women that their voice deserves to be heard. The best advice she can give to both her daughter and women today is to “always speak up, and from the first day.”

“If you keep letting it go on, the situation gets worse and worse until you’re just completely downtrodden,” she added.

As an ambassador for the organization, Williams wants to bring awareness through education and social media. Last fall, the four-time Olympic gold medalist designed a purple purse in honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and is gearing up to unveil her new design for this year.

RELATED: New Mom Serena Williams Designed a Purple Purse in Honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month 

“When I designed it, that was kind of the mindset…for it to be enough for you to take just what you need, your essentials,” Williams told PEOPLE.

On Wednesday, Williams took part in unveiling Purple Purse’s first installment of six “Instagram-able” murals as part of a national campaign to educate the public on the issue of domestic abuse. The first work was done by local artist Isabel Castillo Guijarro in NYC, and five additional murals will be created by local female artists in Houston, Seattle, New Orleans, Los Angeles and Chicago.

Williams snapped a picture in front of the mural with Allstate’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Relations, Vicky Dinges, and is using her strong following on social media to help make the invisible weapon of financial abuse more visible to the world.

“By tapping into the growing popularity of free street art and turning it into a vehicle for social good, we hope these murals will bring financial abuse and domestic violence out of the shadows, and inspire a new network of allies for domestic violence survivors,” said Dinges.

 

As a mother to young Olympia, Williams expressed her strong belief in educating young boys about what is acceptable and not acceptable, and to know that they need to support the cause. “The key word for me is men,” says Williams, adding, “It’s a human rights issue. We should just want to be better humans.”

Kim Kardashian West Says Her Kids Don’t Know She’s Famous: They ‘Have No Clue’

She’s a household name all over the world — except in her very own home.

According to Kim Kardashian West, her three kids with husband Kanye West — daughters North, 5, Chicago, 5 months, and son Saint, 2½ — are pretty much in the dark about their mom and dad’s level of fame.

“It’s pretty intense, but at home I’m not known,” she recently told ITV’s This Morning. “My kids have no clue what’s going on. So I don’t really feel it — I spend most of my time at home.”

RELATED: Feel the Love! See Kim, Kanye, North, Saint & Chicago’s Cutest Pics

When it comes to her mom and sisters, however, 37-year-old Kardashian West said they do reflect on how much their lives have changed in recent years.

“We do talk about how crazy our life has been over the past decade,” she said. “And we’re so grateful. We’re so appreciative, and I mean, we’re still exactly the same.”

During the 10th anniversary special of Keeping Up with the Kardashians last year, Kardashian West and her family opened up about allowing their significant others and children to appear on camera, with Kourtney Kardashian, 39, noting that “the boundaries are always changing.”

“We’ll definitely go through moments where we’re like, ‘Cut the kids way back,’ ” she explained.

“It’s funny now that Mason is getting older,” said Khloé Kardashian, 33, of Kourtney and Scott Disick‘s 8-year-old son. “He knows. He doesn’t watch it, but I’ve heard him talk to his friends and say, ‘I’m on a TV show called Keeping Up with the Kardashians.’ I’m like, how does he know that?!”

“Mason calls the filmers,” said Kourtney. “He used to be like, ‘Are the filmers coming? I want to show them my Legos that I’m building.’ Now he’s in a phase where he’s like, ‘I don’t like when the filmers are over.’ ”

For her part, Kardashian West said appearing on KUWTK is “such a personal choice.”

“You can fall in love with someone, and it’s not their job to be on our show,” she said. “Kanye respects what I do and sometimes he’s on, if he happens to be there, or will let us film if we’re at a concert. At first we were like, ‘Our kids will never be on, my daughter is not going to be on.’ But she’s always around me and she’s so cute, so I just want people to see a little bit. It’s never a story revolving them or about them or anything too personal. We know that we signed up for this, but our kids did not.”

Teen Mom’s Kailyn Lowry Says She’d Rather Date Women as She Loses Partial Custody of Son Lux

Kailyn Lowry is opening up about her love life and turning her back on men (for the moment).

The mother of three revealed she wasn’t open to dating men after her relationship with longtime friend Chris Lopez fell apart. The two share 8-month-old son Lux Russell.

While speaking with friend Lindsie Chrisley and MTV producer J.C. before recording for their podcast, Lowry admitted she hadn’t wanted to date men since her break up with Lopez.

“Are you looking for a guy or a girl?” J.C. asked her.

“I just think that a girl would get me more — like they have more patience and whatever,” Lowry, 26, said. “But I also compare everyone to Chris, and right now, I just… every man is like Chris. I want nothing to do with you. I had been with girls before Chris.”

Lindsie asked, “But do you feel like you don’t want to be with a man because of him?”

“I just want to stay far away from men right now,” Lowry said.

During a podcast episode in November, Lowry revealed she was dating a woman, who fans speculated was her friend Dominique Potter.

“We were friends for a year and so it kind of just turned into ,” Lowry said. “So, it’s not like she was trying to wine and dine me to ask me to be her girlfriend, you know what I mean? It more or less just happened.”

Later in the episode, the MTV star became furious when Lopez took her to court after he filed for emergency visitation rights to see their son.

During a call with a friend, while driving away from the courthouse, Lowry unleashed her worries, saying, “I had to testify against Chris. He got supervised visits for the next four weeks, and then court again on the 29th. He gets to have the baby for five hours. The thing that pisses me off is that his aunt is now the one supervising the visits, so she has to be there.”

“Why can’t the person who supervises the visits be a neutral party? I don’t trust his family to be there,” she admitted.

“Nothing makes me feel better because this could all change on the 29th,” she continued. “I’m conflicted because I got what I wanted for Lux, which is supervised visits but I’m also upset, still. There’s no winning. At the end of the day, Lux still loses because he won’t have both parents.”

Lowry has two other sons from previous relationships. She shares her oldest son Isaac with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera, and second son Lincoln with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.

Prada’s Patrizio Bertelli Says Company is Not For Sale

VALVIGNA, Italy – Prada put rumors about a possible sale to rest on Friday. “Prada is not selling. Of course there are suitors looking at us, it’s normal but we are not selling and we will never sell,” said the group’s chief executive officer Patrizio Bertelli at the presentation of the company’s new Valvigna industrial complex here.
Asked about a Bloomberg report a day earlier on succession plans, Bertelli said, “Let’s see.” His son Lorenzo, 30, who, as reported joined the group last September as head of digital communication, is “acquiring knowhow and experience within the company in communication and is preparing to possibly helm the company if he will want to. We’ll see,” said a noncommittal and typically feisty Bertelli, who dismissed any idea of retiring. “Retirement is associated to a physical and mental state. It’s a silly myth in an old society.”

Scott Disick and Sofia Richie Break Up: He ‘Thinks She Might Change Her Mind,’ Says Source

Scott Disick and Sofia Richie are over, PEOPLE confirms.

According to a source, Richie, 19, ended the relationship with Disick, 35.

“Sofia broke up with Scott,” the insider tells PEOPLE, adding that Disick’s “old issues” contributed to the split.

“When Scott drinks, he is a sloppy mess and fools around,” the source says.

As for how Disick is dealing with the break up, “Scott seems fine,” the insider tells PEOPLE. “He even thinks she might change her mind. He isn’t really taking it seriously.”

The news comes amid heightened speculation about their relationship status after Disick was spotted looking flirty with a mystery woman at Kanye West‘s Ye listening party in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on Thursday night. Disick reportedly told guests that he and Richie were no longer together, according to TMZ.

Richie and Disick — who shares three kids with ex Kourtney Kardashian — first sparked romance 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, Richie — who previously dated Justin Bieber — adamantly denied anything romantic was going on, tweeting that the two were “just homies.”

Months later, the two had become “inseparable,” a source told PEOPLE in mid-September. They confirmed their romance shortly afterwards with friends in Miami, capping off the trip with a few PDA-packed days in Mexico.

In the months that followed, the couple spent much of their time traveling together, enjoying a romantic Italian getaway and another trip to Mexico. They also spent time together stateside and were regularly spotted in Los Angeles and New York City.

While a source previously told PEOPLE that Richie’s famous father Lionel wasn’t too pleased about the relationship — “Lionel knows Scott’s playboy ways, and he doesn’t want to see his daughter get hurt,” the insider said — the model had insisted that her dad was on board.

“He’s good — he’s been very nice,” she told E! News at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Patron of the Artists Awards in Beverly Hills in November.

“He’s been very cool,”  she added. “He’s very supportive, whatever that means,” she added as Lionel, 68, jokingly pointed a gun-shaped hand gesture at his head.

“I am into her business, and she’s trying to keep me out of her business,” he said.

Throughout their relationship, Disick and Richie’s went through ups and downs. A source told PEOPLE in early November that it was “starting to fizzle.”

“They’re starting to argue more, and it’s bothering Sofia,” said the source. “She thought he would be more serious about their relationship and is finding herself to be more frustrated with him as time goes on. Everything everyone has been telling her to look out for, she’s now starting to see for herself. It’s really upsetting for her, but she is trying to work through it.”

But just weeks later, another source told PEOPLE the two were “very serious” and that Richie has been a positive influence on Disick, who is known for his late nights out and has openly struggled with alcohol abuse.

“She’s been great for him,” the source said. “She’s made a big impact on his life and hasn’t partied at all since they met.”

“His friends adore her and nobody notices the age difference,” added the source. “She is very mature, she grew up in Hollywood and has always been in older situations. They seem really happy.”

Woody Harrelson Says Willie Nelson Convinced Him to Smoke Pot Again After a 2-Year Break

Peer pressure is real.

Woody Harrelson made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, where he opened up about what finally made him smoke pot again after quitting for several years.

“I quit for almost two years. No smoking, no vaping,” he said. “Every once in a while you’re going to have something edible. Let’s be real, I’m not a nun.”

But Harrelson said after running into Willie Nelson, who is known for his love of getting high, the temptation became harder than ever to resit.

“He was never comfortable with me quitting, it just bothered him,” he said. “I would always say, ‘Willie you know I’m not smoking,’ ” he continued. “He would always do the same thing like he was hearing it for the first time, ‘Oh really? Sorry!’ This happened like 500 times.”

After playing a game of poker with the musician, the actor and longtime marijuana advocate said he finally caved.

“I was in a celebratory mood and he hands me that pin and I was just snatched and it was like ‘ah, f— it,’ ” he said. “I take a big draw of it and he says ‘Welcome home, son.’ ”

Harrelson has a decades-long history supporting the legalization of marijuana and has even served on the advisory board of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.

In April 2016, Harrelson was one of the first to apply to open a medical marijuana dispensary in Hawaii months after the state’s Department of Health approved the production of medical marijuana — though his request was denied.

Harrelson previously said he decided to quit smoking because it was keeping him from being “emotionally available.”

“I am a party animal,” he said in March 2017. “But on the other hand, I’m now extremely moderate, and … I actually stopped smoking pot almost a year ago.”

Mom of Pregnant Gunshot Victim Who Stayed on Life Support for Weeks to Deliver Baby Says, ‘She Held on For Him’

The mother of a slain pregnant woman who stayed on life support for weeks after being shot so she could have her baby considers the child as a “blessing” even as she mourns her daughter’s loss.

Ohio mom Lindzie Wilson, 25, was shot on March 1 but stayed on life support through April 21, when doctors delivered her baby boy, Bailee. Lindzie, a mom of two other young boys, was subsequently taken off life support and died on April 24, authorities have said.

The fatal shooting, which took place outside of Lindzie’s Springfield home, is still unsolved.

Her mom, LeighAnne Roberts, tells PEOPLE she’s proud her daughter “fought hard for Bailee. She held on for him. She held on as long as she possibly could.”

Bailee was born at 24 weeks and is currently in an incubator in the neonatal intensive care unit, Roberts says, but his long-term prognosis is good: “He’s doing as good as he can” be, says Roberts, who will raise the child.

Roberts is looking forward to Aug. 15 — Lindzie’s due date — when Bailee is taken out of the incubator and she can hold him.

“He’s definitely a blessing,” she says. “I’m sure up there watching this and is happy about how things went.”

Roberts says that doctors described Bailee’s survival as a “miracle”: One of the bullets that struck Lindzie went through her shoulder and traveled diagonally to her opposite hip, narrowly avoiding her unborn child.

“I would have loved for the miracle for to survive it,” she says. “But there was no hope from day one.”

The choice to take Lindzie of life support, she says, was really no choice at all: It had been 54 days and Lindzie’s condition hadn’t improved.

Still, she says the decision to part with her only daughter brought her “indescribable pain. That’s all I can really say.”

Lindzie was an outgoing, generous person who had been accepted into the Naval Academy before her first pregnancy, her mom says. She loved country music and outdoor activities like dirt biking.

Most of all, she loved her children: She was a “hands-on” mom to her two sons Brendan, 8, and Bentley, 5, who are now being cared for by their father.

“She loved her kids deeply,” Roberts says, adding, “Her smile made you smile.”

Lindzie, says Roberts, had “the most gorgeous blue eyes” as well as blond hair — the latter a trait she shares with little Bailee.

The pain of her death is compounded by the fact that it’s still unsolved, says Roberts.

Police have not named a suspect in the attack, and in a recent press conference, Springfield Police Chief Lee Graf called on the public’s help in the investigation.

Graf declined to say whether police think Wilson knew her attacker.

The thought that Lindzie’s attacker is still at large is “very discouraging,” says Roberts.

Referencing Lindzie’s sons, Roberts says, “I want justice for them. All three of them have to grow up without their mom.”

Anyone with information on the shooting should call 937-324-7685 or 937-324-7716, police have said.

Ann Curry Says She Reported Matt Lauer for Sexual Harassment in 2012 on Behalf of a Colleague

Almost five months after he was terminated by NBC for alleged sexual misconduct, new allegations about former Today show anchor Matt Lauer are coming to light.

In a Washington Post report published Thursday, Lauer’s former co-anchor Ann Curry said she approached two members of NBC’s management team in 2012 after a female staffer at the network told her she was “sexually harassed physically” by Lauer.

The NBC staffer confirmed to the Post that she went to Curry with her complaint, but remained anonymous because she fears retaliation.

“A woman approached me and asked me tearfully if I could help her,” Curry told the newspaper. “She was afraid of losing her job … I believed her.”

Curry said the woman implored that she not reveal her name to anyone and she obliged — but she did specifically name Lauer in her conversation with management.

“I told management they had a problem and they needed to keep an eye on him and how he deals with women,” she said. (PEOPLE has reached out to Curry and Lauer for further comment.)

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

Curry, who reportedly has a non-disclosure agreement with the company, declined to name the management officials she says she approached. An NBC spokesman told the Post the company has no record of her warning and said there was no mention of it in Lauer’s personnel file, noting that current NBC News chairman Andy Lack was not at the network at the time.

After barely a year co-hosting Today with Lauer, Curry, 61, left the NBC morning show in 2012 — the same year she says she reported Lauer. Her exit was a painful ordeal that came complete with gossip-column speculation that her firing had been due in part to a lack of “chemistry” with Lauer, 60, and amid reports that he had played a part in forcing her out. (NBC sources have told PEOPLE falling ratings were to blame.)

Curry told the Post there was “pervasive verbal sexual harassment at NBC” but that she understands reluctance to report harassment.

“This is one of the problems when we talk about corporations with an HR department being under leadership of someone who might or might not be accused,” she said. “How are they going to complain about it if they are accusing someone who is overseeing the department that is supposed to protect them?”

“Do you have a system that allows those who feel they have been victimized to air their complaints without fear they will lose their jobs?” she added. “I don’t know a company that does.”

Lauer provided the newspaper with a statement on Wednesday, his first since he initially addressed his firing in November.

“I have made no public comments on the many false stories from anonymous or biased sources that have been reported about me over these past several months,” he said. “I remained silent in an attempt to protect my family from further embarrassment and to restore a small degree of the privacy they have lost.”

“But defending my family now requires me to speak up,” he continued. “I fully acknowledge that I acted inappropriately as a husband, father and principal at NBC. However I want to make it perfectly clear that any allegations or reports of coercive, aggressive or abusive actions on my part, at any time, are absolutely false.”

An insider previously told PEOPLE that Lauer was let go due to sexual misconduct throughout 2014 with a female staffer, including at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Women have also anonymously accused Lauer of sexual harassment and assault in reports published by Variety and The New York Times.

Since his termination, Lauer has been lying low in the Hamptons — and a source close to him recently told PEOPLE that he remains “truly devastated” over the situation that ended his career at NBC.

Speaking to PEOPLE in January, Curry opened up about her reaction to Lauer’s firing, saying she felt “outrage” that such alleged misconduct was tolerated and “tremendous empathy for the victims.”

But she certainly isn’t one to gloat, even amid the downfall of a man once depicted as her nemesis.

“I’m not a vengeful person,” she said. “I know what it’s like to be humiliated. I just don’t want to play a part in anyone else’s humiliation.”

“I wish I could say that I was celebrating,” she added. “But actually I immediately checked myself. Because I knew women had suffered.”

McKayla Maroney Says ‘Messed Up’ Gymnastics Culture Made Her Rely on Abuser Larry Nassar for Food

As McKayla Maroney trained at the 2012 London Olympics, she says it was now-convicted child molester Larry Nassar who would sneak food to her when the strict coaches weren’t looking — and used the “messed up” gymnastics culture as a way to further manipulate.

“I think I would’ve starved at the Olympics if I didn’t have him bring me food,” Maroney, 22, told NBC News, in an excerpt of an interview that aired on Today Thursday morning, adding that she felt like she “needed” Nassar. “Your coaches are just always watching you. And wanting to keep you skinny. There’s just other things about the culture that are also messed up that he used against us.”

Maroney says the former USA Gymnastics doctor would “buy me a loaf of bread” in an effort to groom her and take advantage of the unhealthy conditions.

The former Olympian spoke to Savannah Guthrie in her first-ever television interview about the abuse for a Dateline special airing this Sunday evening. The special also features the first-ever TV interview with famed gymnastics coaches Bela and Martha Karolyi about the Nassar scandal. An excerpt of Maroney’s interview also aired on Today Wednesday morning.

“He told me he was going to do a checkup on me, and that was the first day I was abused,” the Olympian said in the clip that aired Wednesday morning, alleging that Nassar molested her hundreds of times. “ every time I saw him.”

RELATED: Olympian McKayla Maroney Says Child Molester Larry Nassar Abused Her ‘Hundreds’ of Times

Officials with USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee have praised Maroney for her bravery. USA Gymnastics apologized to the athletes in a statement and said officials are “committed to doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again.”

Maroney initially revealed the alleged abuse in an October Twitter post, writing then that the abuse lasted until she left the sport.

“He said that nobody would understand this and the sacrifice that it takes to get to the Olympics, so you can’t tell people this,” Maroney recalled to NBC. “He didn’t say it in a way that was mean or anything like that.

“I actually was like, ‘That makes sense. I don’t want to tell anybody about this.’ And I didn’t believe that they would understand.”

Maroney isn’t the only athlete to open up about the conditions in the sport that enabled the child molester. In March, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman described the famous Karolyi Ranch as “disgusting” and told the Washington Post that there was a culture of fear at the world-famous training camp. Raisman has also filed suit against the USOC and USA Gymnastics, alleging that the organizations failed to implement safeguards at the Karolyi ranch, leaving the gymnasts vulnerable to abuse at Nassar’s hands.

“The shower smelled like eggs, and we would bring sandals to wear because it was so disgusting,” Raisman told the Post. “After you showered you were like, ‘I almost feel dirtier than before.’ ”

She added: “Nobody wanted to be the one who was difficult. Now that I’m away from the sport it makes me so angry that we were afraid to ask for soap.”

Earlier this year, the disgraced former gymnastics doctor received lengthy sentences in Michigan’s Eaton and Ingham counties for sexually abusing girls and women for several years. In both hearings, several victims read emotional impact statements to the court.

Nassar has been called “the most prolific child molester in history.”

More than 250 women and girls have accused Nassar of assault, including gymnasts Aly RaismanSimone BilesMcKayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas.

NeNe Leakes Says Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s ‘Lies Have Runneth Over’ After RHOA Costar Apologizes

Kim Zolciak-Biermann may be waving a white flag in her feud with NeNe Leakes, but the latter Housewife is seemingly still seeing red.

Hours after the two women faced off on The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 10 reunion part two, Zolciak-Biermann issued an apology hoping to end their war of words. Zolciak-Biermann vowed to stop engaging in battle with her former costar.

Her apology, though, came with the threat of a lawsuit against Leakes — one that Leakes, 50, seemingly encouraged Zolciak-Biermann, 39, start.

“Please file a lawsuit,” the former Fashion Police host wrote on Twitter in a series of impassioned tweets, never directly naming her frenemy but alluding to Zolciak-Biermann. She added, “Anytime you wanna go to court, I’m happy to see you there because your lies have runneth over.”

“You can never WIN when you play DIRTY so throw in the towel!” she also tweeted, before seemingly mocking Zolciak-Biermann’s lip injections. “I mean, throw in the lips!”

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

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

Leakes and Zolciak-Biermann both returned to RHOA for its tenth anniversary season after a long absence from the series, Leakes as a full-time Housewife and Zolciak-Biermann in the “Friend of the Housewives” role.

While the homecoming was supposed to be a triumphant one for the two former friends — who were original Atlanta Housewives when the show first premiered in October 2008 — they quickly butted heads throughout this season, with their fights often spilling over to social media.

The most explosive incident came when Zolciak-Biermann said Leakes was “sick and disgusting” and lived in a “roach nest,” a battle fans quickly dubbed “#RoachGate.” Leakes then responded with her own slams, calling Zolciak-Biermann “racist” and claiming she and her daughter Brielle “don’t like black people.”

RELATED: ‘Close Your Legs to Married Men’: A Brief History of Kim Zolciak-Biermann & NeNe Leakes’ Rocky Friendship

Zolciak-Biermann didn’t take Leakes’ claims lightly. Back in October, when their #RoachGate battle was playing out on social media, the mother of six obtained legal counsel against Leakes.

“She put #KKK on the Instagram post. I’ve hired legal counsel at this point. It’s just that bad,” Zolciak-Biermann told Larry King on Larry King Now. “It’s inappropriate. In this day and age, people are dying over racism. I’m on a show with all African-American women and I’m the only one that’s ever been on the show that’s Caucasian, so it’s the card that sometimes they play and it’s gross. And I won’t allow it.”

“I don’t take this lightly,” Zolciak-Biermann added to E!’s Daily Pop. “It’s one thing like I said to kind of banter back and forth and have an opinion. This is far beyond just having an opinion.”

She later revealed on RHOA that she received death threats after Leakes’ racist claims.

In her Instagram apology on Sunday night, Zolciak-Biermann told Leakes “we both know the truth.”

“We both know that if I wanted to, I could have a lawsuit for the lies you have spewed: tweeting out fake texts, implying I am racist, attacking me physically, claiming my daughter tweeted negative about you and your home – we both know these are lies,” she wrote.

Still, she ultimately apologized.

“I am so sorry for what has happened,” said Zolciak-Biermann. “I have reacted to it publicly and for that I am sorry. I should have risen above it. I personally will no longer engage with you on social media and perpetuate the hate. I am asking you to do the same. We are grown women with families. Enough is enough. I want us to move on.”

RELATED VIDEO: The Real Housewives of Atlanta Go Makeup-Free for PEOPLE’s Beautiful Issue

As for RHOA, don’t expect to see Zolciak-Biermann back on the hit Bravo show anytime soon.

Asked over the weekend by TMZ cameras if she would return to RHOA, Zolciak-Biermann said “never, never,” explaining it caused “too much stress — unneeded stress.” 

Executive producer Andy Cohen agreed. “I think she’s done, yeah,” the 49-year-old Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host told E! News, recounting the tension in filming the RHOA season 10 reunion. “ walked out of that reunion and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ve seen the last of that wig at these reunions.’ ”

The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion part 3 airs Sunday (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

Creutz, managing director and senior research analyst covering the media and entertainment sector at Cowen, told MarketWatch that the game has made more than blockbuster movies like Star Wars, and Gone With The Wind, which both brought in around $ 3 billion in theaters when adjusted for inflation. Creutz estimates that even with home entertainment sales, which he puts in the ballpark of $ 1 billion, the films don’t come close to Rockstar’s 2013 title.

Pregnant Khloé Kardashian Says She Misses Sister Kylie Jenner as She Nests in Cleveland

Earlier this week, a source told PEOPLE the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who is nearing the end of her third trimester, will remain in Ohio until the baby is born.

Lena Dunham Says She Has 19 People Ready to Stop Her from Tweeting

Keeping Lena Dunham out of trouble on social media isn’t a one-person job.

During a packed panel at South by Southwest in Austin on Saturday entitled “Authenticity and Media in 2018,” the often outspoken 31-year-old — who was making her first public appearance since her hysterectomy — revealed how she tries to keep herself out of hot water on social media.

Acknowledging her history of creating controversies — and then issuing public apologies — Dunham admitted during a talk with new Glamour editor-in-chief Samantha Barry that the pattern had become somewhat of a running joke (there’s even a Twitter bot called “Lena Dunham Apologizes”).

“These articles come out that say, ‘Lena Dunham apologies for like the 87th’ time,’ that was how I was raised,” she said. “We try and we fail and we try again. We think the problem from another angle and we grow.”

So how does she safeguard herself in the future from the backlash the apologies repeatedly stir up?

“I have about 19 people ready to stop me from tweeting. Many of them paid,” she joked.

RELATED: Lena Dunham Shares Topless Photo After Getting Candid About Her Recent Hysterectomy and Breakup

But while Dunham has been known to stir up controversy, she said that the “shame” from causing an uproar “goes away really fast.”

“I’ll have two moments. One is full of shame and like, ‘I should never have been let out of my house in the first place.’ Or like, ‘Nobody even deserves me or my truth.’ But it goes away really fast and it’s kind of the only thing that I know how to do,” she said.

RELATED: This Is Why Lena Dunham Had a Hysterectomy to Treat Her Endometriosis

Opening up about her recent hysterectomy, the Girls star noted how much the outpouring of support has meant to her — and how she wasn’t expecting it.

“The only person I’d heard of with hysterectomies was like my 67 year old grandmother, I just didn’t know that we were out there,” Dunham said.

“The amount of people I am having conversations about gynecological health with in public places is off the charts. But I like it,” she said. “I’d rather do that then exchange fake pleasantries. It was only three months ago.”

The often self-deprecating writer also poked fun of her own tousled hair style saying, “Well I hoped that the hairstyle would speak to the authenticity of this panel.”

Although Dunham went on to say that she doesn’t have “whatever the skill set is that allows you to program your own image from the outside and make calculated decisions about how you want to come across,” she pointed out that she didn’t think that was always such a bad thing.

“I think authenticity comes in many forms and it doesn’t just have to be that you didn’t just do your hair right. People confuse authentic with the idea of messy or broken and I think Anna Wintour is authentic and she’s had that haircut for a f— long time.”

RELATED: Friendly Exes Jack Antonoff & Lena Dunham Exchange Tweets About Geeking Out Over Molly Ringwald

Dunham also admitted that “a big part of” growing up for her has meant “moving away from this sense that I need to have an opinion about everything.”

“I didn’t get in to this to be a perfect celebrity model. I don’t know how to do it,” she said. “That is not where my skill set lies and I think a big part of my 30s is moving away from this sense that I need to have an opinion about everything and taking a moment to think before I speak,” she added.

“Now I find myself wanting to slow down and think about how I can give other women the platform that was given to me. How I can speak through my work. And I hope that this is maturing. I think it is. I can’t be sure. I still wear my hair like this.”

Nicole Richie Says Daughter Harlow ‘Loves’ Makeup: ‘She’s a Different Beast Than Me’

Nicole Richie has passed on her love of makeup to the next generation.

The face of Urban Decay’s Naked Petite Heat palette (available Feb. 22 on urbandecay.com) tells PEOPLE that her 10-year-old daughter Harlow Winter Kate “loves” makeup just like her mama, but she goes about her beauty routine in her own distinct way.

“She’s a different beast than me,” the 36-year-old star says. “She should have this campaign. She is like a glitter, a liner, a liquid liner, a blush, a lipstick, a YouTube tutorial video. She is in it.”

Richie recently described the power of makeup to PEOPLE. “You can transform yourself into another being, which I think is really amazing,” she explains. “I know women who feel most like themselves when they have a full face of makeup on and that makes them feel strong about themselves.”

“We as women have every tool that we need in order to feel our strongest, best self,” Richie adds. “I don’t think that makeup has to hide you. I think it can accentuate what you already have.”

Aside from staying on top of her beauty game, Harlow — Richie’s older child with Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden (the duo also share son Sparrow James Midnight, 8) — is also paying attention to the news and women’s rights.

The mother-daughter duo recently attended this year’s Women’s March, and Richie says Harlow herself voiced that she wanted to attend.

“She knew what it was, she heard about it last year. I went last year, a few of her friends went,” Richie explains. “Her and her friends had decided they wanted to go. It was their decision. Her and four friends came with us. I really loved it. I was so happy that she was there.”

When it comes to feminism, Richie hopes her daughter stays true to herself as she grows up.

“I want her to always feel confident in her decisions and I want her to own all of her feelings — whether they are hurtful to me or anybody,” she says of Harlow.

“I want her to be able to look at any adult male or female for the rest of her life and to be able to own how she feels and be able to tap into her instincts without ever feeling she has to protect anybody else or think about anybody other than her well being and her safety,” Richie adds. “I want her to have power in her voice and confidence with her voice and her feelings.”

John Leguizamo Says He’s Willing to Give Up Acting to Run for Office

John Leguizamo, creator of the Broadway show Latin History for Morons, has never shied away from using his immense platform to voice his opinions, especially to criticize the polices and actions of President Donald Trump. Now, the actor reveals his willingness to sacrifice his life’s passions —  acting and writing — to stand up for his beliefs by launching a political campaign.

Although the 53-year-old continues to add more projects to his plate, the Latino actor admitted that he would give up his decades-long career to thwart the advancement of the new political today: “You know, I love what I do. I would hate to give it up,” Leguizamo told DailyBeast.com. “But if I could I would run for office in Texas. I would run someplace heinous to make a difference.”

Leguizamo’s Broadway show, which chronicles the long, illustrious, often fraught history of Latinos in the U.S., serves as an inspiration for his political agenda. “I would run… to get rid of gerrymandering and to allow people to teach Latino history in Texas which is 39 percent Latino and around 12 percent black, so we people of color are the majority. Why are we so beaten down there?”

But the actor isn’t going to wait for his day in office. The Carlito’s Way star will use his current work to affect the change he wants to see in the world starting in November 2018. During the next election season, Leguizamo wants to take Latin History for Morons to major cities like Chicago, Denver, Miami and many more to galvanize Latinos to get involved: “Latinos need to be motivated to be re-motivated, and maybe even inspired for the first time to understand how much right they have to speak out and stand up for themselves,” he told the online magazine.

The Chainsmokers’ Alex Pall Says He’s ‘Miserable’ After Ex-Girlfriend Exposed Him for Cheating

Alex Pall, the DJ who makes up half of EDM-pop duo The Chainsmokers, has broken his silence after his now ex-girlfriend Tori Woodward released footage that appeared to show him kissing another girl.

TMZ caught the Grammy winner at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday, where the 32-year-old admitted he was happy to be jetting off for a show in Doha, Qatar.

“It’ll be good to get out of the country,” he said, sharing that he’s been feeling “miserable” since the public shaming and breakup.

Pall said of Woodward, “She deserves the best. I wish nothing but the best for her. She deserves a better guy than me.”

He also added that he’s learned to “be a better person and take care of those who love you.”

The pictures of Pall’s apparent infidelity were captured by CCTV at a residential location and posted to Woodward’s Instagram Stories in a series of snaps earlier this month.

“Alex is disgusting. Men are trash. Don’t ever forget it,” Woodward captioned one of the surveillance shots, which Woodward later accused Pall of reporting to Instagram after it was taken down by the social network site.

“They’ll look you in the eyes and tell you they love you. Then destroy you without a second thought,” she captioned another snap, which appeared to show Pall kissing an unknown woman outside the front door.

Reps for Pall and The Chainsmokers did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment about the incident, but Woodward — who has dated Pall since February 2014 — claimed this wasn’t the first time he had been unfaithful throughout their long relationship.

“After hours of begging him for scraps of honesty, I chipped away just enough to confirm that this is not the first time he’s remorsely cheated on me,” she wrote in another post, listing some of the other women she had questioned him about. “That ‘psycho bitch’ from Vegas, the ‘lame Instagram model’ caught on video and countless others he looked me in the eyes and swore on his life he never touched.”

According to Woodward, Pall allegedly gave her excuses for the infidelity.

“Consistent outright denial faded to him explaining that because all men do it, it’s not that bad. And in different words, that because he’s famous now, he had a different rulebook for decency,” she said. “What’s perhaps the most amazing is that he HASN’T EVEN APOLOGIZED.”

“What he has done is everything he possibly can to stop this from coming out, from looking the kind of person who does what he’s done,” she claimed. ” ‘You’re better than this.’ That’s right I am, but you’re not.”

The band, made up of Pall and Andrew Taggart, is nominated for a best pop duo/group performance Grammy at the 2018 awards for their collaboration with Coldplay, “Something Just Like This,” off their full-length album Memories … Do Not Open.

Ed Sheeran Says He Would Play Meghan and Harry’s First Dance at Their Wedding — If They Ask

If Meghan Markle and Prince Harry need a singer for their upcoming wedding, Ed Sheeran knows a guy…himself!

After the Grammy winner received an MBE, signifying he’s a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in recognition of his services to music and charity, on Thursday, he told reporters that the royal couple have not been in touch about serenading them for their first dance as husband and wife.

But should they ask, Sheeran’s down for the gig.

“Yeah, why not?!” he said.

After all, the 26-year-old does have some experience as a wedding singer — in 2015, he crashed the Sydney wedding of Kya and Matt Debono and performed his romantic hit “Thinking Out Loud” for their first dance.

Prince Charles bestowed the MBE honor to Sheeran on behalf of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. Because he was not made a “Sir” (or knight), the ceremony did not involve the traditional sword tap on the shoulder.

After the ceremony, Sheeran revealed that his grandfather was a fan of the monarchy and thought he would be proud that his grandson received such an honor.

“Do you know what I love, my grandfather was a massive royalist, he had all the commemorative plates and stuff, and he died on this day four years ago, so it’s actually quite a nice full circle thing, I guess he’d be pretty proud,” he told reporters.

RELATED VIDEO: The Sweet Reason Why Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Want a Banana Wedding Cake

Harry and Meghan’s wedding will be in May at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The couple’s Kensington Palace spokesman said the soon-to-be newlyweds are “extremely grateful following the warm public response” to their engagement.

“Windsor is a very special place for Prince Harry, and he and Ms. Markle have regularly spent time there during the last year,” said the spokesman. “They are delighted that the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple.”

The couple are also said to want a wedding cake made from bananas, a source told The Telegraph. And the reason why has a romantic twist.

In addition to Harry reportedly loving “anything with banana,” the fruit has also played a cheeky role in their relationship.

Just hours after their budding romance was confirmed in late October of last year, the former Suits actress posted a cryptic image of two cuddling bananas on her Instagram. Alongside the quirky romantic photo, she added the caption, “Sleep tight xx.”

The unexpected banana post sent royal watchers into a frenzy over the new couple’s relationship. And now, just one year later, they’re planning to celebrate their big day with a banana cake — which would be a first for a royal wedding.
