Victoria Beckham Slams Divorce Rumors as She Poses with David Beckham: ‘We’re Stronger Together’

Victoria Beckham isn’t concerned about the constant divorce rumors that plague her marriage.

The fashion designer and former singer appears on the latest cover of British Vogue along with husband David Beckham and their four kids: daughter Harper Seven, 7, and sons Cruz David, 13, Romeo James, 16, and Brooklyn Joseph, 19.

“People have been making things up about our relationship for 20 years, so David and I are pretty used to ignoring the nonsense and just carrying on as normal,” she said. “But these things have a wider effect on the people around us, and that’s unfair.”

Victoria and David married in July 1999 with four-month-old Brooklyn serving as ring bearer. They last faced split rumors earlier this summer, which their spokesperson quickly denied.

“We both realize that we are stronger together than we are as individuals,” Victoria continued. “Would either of us be in the position that we are in now had we not met and been together all those years ago? It’s all about the family unit. We are much stronger the six of us, than we would be if we were individuals. We respect that family bond and that is key.”

In a second festive image, Romeo sat in front of a bunch of silver and white balloons (as well as a table piled high with presents!), while in another, she showed off the birthday boy’s tennis-themed cake.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Official Wedding Portraits Were Just Released!

Picture perfect!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are celebrating the end of their royal wedding weekend with the release of their official wedding portraits on Monday.

Taken in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle after the royal couple’s magical carriage procession, the portraits were shot by fashion photographer, Alexi Lubomirski, who took the couple’s dreamy engagement photos at Frogmore House in Windsor late last year.

The first photo is an epic gathering of the entire royal family (minus 4-week-old Prince Louis, who stayed home at the palace!), the little bridal party and Meghan’s proud mother, Doria Ragland.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding on Saturday. They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and also all those who watched the wedding on television across the U.K., Commonwealth, and around the world,” a Kensington Palace spokesperson said.

“Their Royal Highnesses are delighted with these official portraits taken by Alexi Lubomirski and are happy to be able to share them today. They would also like to say thank you for all of the generous messages of support they have received.”

Also featured in the photo set is a picture of just Harry and Meghan with their adorable page boys and bridesmaids. Led by the couple’s niece and nephew, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the eight other children include several of Harry and Meghan’s godchildren and children of their friends: Florence van Cutsem, 3; Remi Litt, 6 and her sister Rylan, 7; Ivy Mulroney, 4; Zalie Warren, 2; Jasper Dyer, 6; and twins Brian and John Mulroney, 7.

The bride and groom themselves posed for a romantic black-and-white photo featuring just the two of them. Taken just moments after they tied the knot, the love and happiness they felt on the day is evident on their smiling faces.

“It has been an incredible honor and privilege to document The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s inspiring journey of love, hope and family; from the engagement photos, all the way through to the official wedding and family portraits on Saturday,” Lubomirski said in a statement. “This has been a beautiful chapter in my career and life, that I will happily never forget.”

At the 2011 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the official portraits of the couple and the bridal party were taken by Hugo Burnand. Burnand was also on hand to shoot the official pictures for the wedding of Prince Charles to Camilla Parker-Bowles six years earlier.

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.

Watch People Cover Story – Bachelorette Finale: Rachel Lindsayavailable now, on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN).  Go to PEOPLE.com/PEN, or download the PEN app on your favorite mobile or connected TV device.

 

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.”

George Clooney and Rande Gerber Were ‘Shocked’ at Offer to Sell Casamigos Tequila for $1 Billion

Rande Gerber says he and his business partner George Clooney were stunned when they were offered a whopping $ 1 billion to sell the tequila company they started just four years ago — and never expected it to gain so much popularity.

“We never planned on starting a tequila company. You know, we made Casamigos just for us to drink,” Gerber said during a phone interview with Good Morning America on Thursday. “Once we did launch the company, we thought, ‘Hey, if we could see a bottle or two, great. If not, at least we still get to drink our own tequila.’”

He added: “So, four years later when we’re offered a billion dollars to sell the company, yeah, we were kind of shocked.”

In a statement to PEOPLE on Wednesday, Clooney confirmed that he, Gerber and real estate mogul Mike Meldman will sell the alcohol brand to the European beverage company Diageo for the large sum.

Diageo announced the news in a press release which reveals that the deal is expected to close in the second half of calendar 2017. Officials said that the deal could stand to bring in $ 10 million, in addition to the $ 1 billion.

The celebrity pals started Casamigos in 2013 “by accident” after failing to find the perfect tequila on vacation in Mexico.

From Coinage: Why Does Chardonnay Cost So Much?

“I think the most important thing for us though is, we really love what we do, and we love what we made and we want to keep drinking it and keep the team together,” Gerber continued, adding that the trio will continue to run the company.

RELATED: Frozen Wine Slushies Are as Pretty as They Are Delicious

“George will keep his role … working on the marketing with me,” he said. “The great thing is we do everything in house so even though we were bought by Diageo … we’ll remain a standalone company. We’ll operate it as we have since day one.”

Much like everything else, Gerber said the taste of the tequila will remain the same and that they will “definitely not” change the formula.

The Grateful Dead’s Wild Shows Were A Lot For Al Franken To Handle

The Grateful Dead’s legacy is rich enough to merit a four-hour documentary that includes an appearance from Al Franken, the former “Saturday Night Live” performer and current United States senator who didn’t “get” the druggy cult surrounding the band. HuffPost has an exclusive clip from “Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story of the Grateful Dead” in which Franken recalls dirty scenes at Grateful Dead shows with all the charm of a primo dad. 

“Long Strange Trip” opens May 26 in New York and Los Angeles, and premieres June 2 on Amazon Prime.

Songs That Were Written in Honor of Mothers

In honor of Mother’s Day, we’re looking back at 12 unforgettable musical tributes from daughters and sons to the women who raised them.

Listen to the heartwarming and heart-wrenching tracks that will definitely inspire you to call your own mom.

1. Kanye West: “Hey Mama”

The rapper‘s adoring tribute to mom Donda West was included on his 2005 record Late Registration. Donda liked the song so much that she even reportedly used it as her ringtone.

A week after her 2007 death, West broke down in tears while attempting to introduce the track at a Paris concert.

2. Carrie Underwood: “Mama’s Song”

Underwood co-wrote the 2010 Play On song about the evolving relationship between mothers and daughters. ” ‘Mama’s Song’ definitely reflects my mom and I’s relationship. Hopefully a lot of moms and daughters can relate to this too,” the singer said in an interview on her YouTube channel. Underwood’s husband Mike Fisher and her mother, Carole Underwood, both appeared in the music video.

3. Taylor Swift: “The Best Day”

” ‘The Best Day’ is a song that I wrote without telling my mom,” Swift told Taste of Country of her 2008 Fearless track. “I wrote it in the summertime, and I recorded it secretly, too. I had this idea that I wanted to play it for her for Christmas. So when I got the track I synced up all of these home videos from when I was a little kid to go along with the song like a music video, and played it for her on Christmas Eve and she was crying her eyes out.”

4. Beyoncé: “Ring Off”

In 2014’s “Ring Off,” Beyoncé celebrates mom Tina Lawson‘s newfound independence following her divorce from Mathew Knowles. The song was included on the deluxe release of her self-titled album.

5. Blake Shelton: “The Baby”

” ‘The Baby’ is based on the true story of Michael White and the relationship he had with his mother. He wrote the song ,” Shelton told CMT of his 2003 tear-jerker hit. “As far as my life is concerned, it is true up until the part where the mother passes away. I am the baby of the family, and I moved away when I was 17, and I was away from home when I turned 21, and up until now it has paralleled my life.”

“But the one thing that it teaches me, and hopefully everyone who hears the song, is not to take your family for granted, and try to at least stay in touch with them,” he added.

6. Madonna: “Promise to Try”

The music icon co-wrote the somber Like a Prayer ballad about her mother Madonna Louis Ciccone, who died of breast cancer when the star was five. In her 1991 Rockumentary Madonna: Truth of Dare, “Promise to Try” plays as she visits her mother’s grave in Detroit.

7. Drake: “You & The 6”

Drake directly addresses mom Sandi Graham in “You & The 6,” off his 2015 album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. “The 6” refers to his hometown of Toronto.

8. Chance The Rapper: “Hey Ma”

“Hey Ma” gives Chance the opportunity to thank his own mother, Lisa Bennet, for surviving his adolescent misbehavior. The song comes off of the rapper’s 2012 mixtape 10 Day, which is named after the 10-day high school suspension during which he began working on the collection.

9. The Beatles: “Julia”

The White Album song was named after John Lennon’s mother, Julia Lennon, who died in a traffic accident when he was 17. The singer-songwriter’s 1970 track, “Mother,” also deals with his and Julia’s complicated relationship.

10. Mac Miller: “I’ll Be There”

Miller included an ode to his mother on 2011’s Best Day Ever. “My mom and I have been through a lot of s—. Me taking it upon myself to follow this dream, it caused a lot of problems with me and my mom on our day-to-day relationship. I feel like my mom is one of the best moms ever — how I’m sure everyone else feels. So I wanted to make a song speaking on that,” he said of “I’ll Be There,” he said, according to Genius.

11. Billy Joel: “Rosalinda’s Eye’s”

Joel‘s mother, Rosalind Nyman Joel, and their family history inspired this 52nd Street tune. Rosalind died in 2014 at 92 years old.

12. Bruce Springsteen: “The Wish”

Springsteen wrote “The Wish” about mom Adele Ann Springsteen. “Well tonight I’m takin’s requests here in the kitchen/ This one’s for you, Ma, let me come right out and say it,” he sings.

The Best Looks At The MTV Awards Were Definitely The Wildest

There’s nothing better than a red carpet full of risk-takers. Perhaps that why we look forward to an MTV awards show so much. 

The network’s always playful events bring out a fun side in our favorite celebs, sometimes to failure and sometimes to major payoff. We saw mostly the latter at the MTV Movie and TV Awards in Los Angeles Sunday night: Chrissy Metz looked amazing in bold red latex, Taraji P. Henson slithered her way into a backless silver stunner and Cara Delevingne made a strong case for the summer 2017 buzzcut, just to name a few of our faves. 

Check out the best looks from the event below.

14 Movies We’re Thrilled To See At This Year’s Tribeca Film Festival

Spring doesn’t last long in New York City, but with it comes the Tribeca Film Festival. Kicking off Wednesday and continuing through April 30, this year marks the 16th iteration of Robert De Niro and producer Jane Rosenthal’s gala, founded to help revive downtown Manhattan after 9/11.

Tribeca’s television and virtual-reality lineups are a cut above most other festivals. Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” will premiere this week, and Ken Burns’ Vietnam War documentary series and the new season of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” are on tap for next week, as well as a slew of other titles. Additionally, the “Godfather” and “Reservoir Dogs” casts will reunite for anniversary retrospectives, and a handful of fascinating duos will sit down to discuss their craft, including Bruce Springsteen and Tom Hanks, Noah Baumbach and Dustin Hoffman, Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, and Barbra Streisand and Robert Rodriguez

Along the way, The Huffington Post will provide ongoing coverage of Tribeca’s buzziest movies, shows and events. It all starts with the opening-night premiere of the new Clive Davis documentary, followed by a concert featuring Aretha Franklin, Carly Simon, Barry Manilow, Jennifer Hudson, Dionne Warwick and Earth, Wind & Fire. Here’s a handful of titles that are on our radar over the next two weeks.

Carrie Fisher’s Daughter Wore A Princess Leia Tribute Dress And We’re Not Crying, You’re Crying

It’s not the “same jacket,” but it is a similar dress.

Actress Billie Lourd wore a custom mini version of her mom Carrie Fisher’s iconic Princess Leia gown Thursday at Star Wars Celebration, a four-day festival in Orlando dedicated to all things from a galaxy far, far away. 

Lourd collaborated with Tom Ford to design the chalk-colored dress with kimono sleeves, and it was a timely tribute: The event marked Lourd’s first public appearance since Fisher’s death in December

Lourd was on hand to help George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy debut a new video tribute to Fisher that premiered on the first day of the festival. She delivered a heartfelt speech to the crowd, recalling her mother’s love of the film and its dedicated fans.

“My mom, like Leia, wasn’t ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable, but not me and not you,” she said. “That was why she loved you, because you accepted and embraced all of her.” 

Lourd wrote on Instagram that she felt “the ultimate strength of the force from all the incredible fans at #starwarscelebration after our tribute to my #momby.”  

The force lives on through Lourd and her touching tributes ― spoken and sartorial.

We’re One Step Closer To Wearing Clothing Made From Poop

Man, you’re never going to believe what may soon be used to make clothes.

It’s a fabric made from cow poop. 

On April 6, the H&M Foundation tapped five fashion innovators for its Global Change Award, a roughly $ 1.06 million prize celebrating sustainability through “game-changing ideas that can help reinvent the entire industry.” 

One of those winners, Dutch artist and entrepreneur Jalila Essaidi, makes a textile jokingly referred to as “manure couture.” And yes, it’s exactly what you think it is. 

Essaidi’s revolutionary fabric, Mestic, is made from the cellulose found in the dry components of cow manure. The wet materials in cow manure also contain acids necessary “to transform the cellulose into a new material,” she explained in a 2016 interview, meaning there’s even less waste of waste. 

Essaidi explains on her website that the fabric serves as a way to reduce phosphate and nitrogen, two chemicals found in manure that harm the environment and, as of 2016, were in surplus in The Netherlands.

Refinery29 reports that the material itself does not smell like poop, and garments shown in a 2016 fashion show using Mestic really do look luxurious and wearable. 

Essaidi is also the creator of Bulletproof Skin, “a project that achieved bioengineered bulletproof human skin reinforced with synthetic spider silk.”

In other words, she’s a total badass. 

The prize money was awarded to “speed up the shift to a circular waste-free fashion industry,” according to a press release, and winners will participate in a year-long innovation accelerator to help them develop their ideas or products and connect them within the fashion industry. 

While it remains to be seen how close to market Mestic will be after the year-long accelerator program, Essaidi’s intentions are clear. “I just want people to give a shit about the planet,” she said at the award ceremony in Stockholm Thursday. 

While Mestic isn’t guaranteed to be sold at H&M or the company’s other retail businesses, a spokesperson told The Huffington Post that the point of the project is “to spur ideas that could have the potential to create a more sustainable fashion future,” adding, “Hopefully, they will be able to have an impact on the fashion industry as a whole.”

The future of fashion looks crappy, and we’re all for it.

DJ Duo Claim They Were Handcuffed and ‘Dragged Off Stage’ for Telling Frat Party ‘Put Yo Hands Up’

A DJ duo claim that they were handcuffed and dragged off stage at a University of Alabama frat party after telling revelers to “put yo’ hands up” during their performance.

Vicetone, real names Ruben Den Boer and Victor Pool, tweeted, “So I just got handcuffed and dragged off stage at this college party for ‘inciting a riot’ by yelling something like ‘put yo hands up.’ ”

The Dutch duo followed up the tweet at 1:15 a.m. Saturday by saying, “Obviously got released cause I did nothing wrong – also huge shoutout to University of Alabama for throwing down tonight.”

A video of the Tuscaloosa party posted on Twitter shows one of the duo on stage in a hospital gown drinking 4 Loko, which is a combination of malt liquor and caffeine.

A University of Alabama police officer told PEOPLE that neither Den Boer nor Pool were arrested, but said officers were called to the party for “crowd control.” She referred further questions to the university’s media relations department, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

One student tweeted an apology that police intervened at the show, “Sorry you guys had to go through that crap here. You guys were lit.”

It’s not clear whether anyone was arrested at the party.

Couples Were Asked If They’d Have A Threesome. Here’s What They Said

Like anything sex-related, you’ll never know if your partner is into threesomes unless you ask. 

In the video above, the team over at WatchCut got the conversation started, asking couples if they’d ever be down to share their partner in bed. Some of the pairs have already done it.

“We don’t do it with people we know,” one boyfriend explains. “No kissing! And no spending the night ― [it’s] a one and done kind of deal.” 

Some couples aren’t exactly on the same page.

“My wife is for me; I don’t want to share or be part of somebody else’s fantasy,” one husband says. “I’m just not that into that.” 

His wife, on the other hand, seems a bit curious about the possibility. 

“I don’t know about now but I probably would have before?” she says. “I don’t know! I’d definitely have to be drunk.”

We’re Already Getting A Miniseries About The 2016 Election

We are 26 days into Donald Trump’s presidency, and there’s already a miniseries about the 2016 election on the horizon.

That’s right, you can soon channel your crippling panic about America’s federal horror show via an eight- to 10-hour drama from “Zero Dark Thirty” scribe Mark Boal and producer Megan Ellison, according to Deadline. Boal, who won an Oscar for writing “The Hurt Locker,” is expected to make his directorial debut and pen part of the series.

Boal and Ellison will work with Hugo Lindgren, the former New York Times and Hollywood Reporter editor who in 2014 launched Page 1, a company that develops movies and TV series based on recent news stories. Lindgren is reportedly compiling a team of investigative journalists in New York and Washington, D.C., to work on the project. 

Whether or not a few months provides enough distance to process the nutty election we just endured is yet to be seen. It seems like this endeavor most closely resembles Game Change, the meticulously reported behind-the-scenes account of the 2008 election. Game Change started as a 2010 book and became an Emmy-winning HBO movie in 2012. 

There’s no network attached to Boal and Ellison’s series yet. Showtime has already contributed to the election postmortem with “Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time,” a documentary that aired Feb. 3. PBS also dedicated a January episode of “Frontline” to chronicling how the hell Trump made it all the way to the White House. It’s almost like the whole thing is so dreadful that no one can think of anything else! Fire up your Hillary Clinton casting wish list now.

Pink Puts Son Jameson Down When Daughter Willow Walks in the Room: She’s ‘a Little Weepy … We’re Working on It’

Is there a bit of sibling rivalry in Pink‘s household?

The 37-year-old singer, who recently welcomed her son Jameson Moon, opens up about life with two children during Tuesday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“He’s delicious,” Pink says of her 3-week-old baby boy during a phone call with DeGeneres.

And although the family is enjoying the new baby, Pink says she’s determined to make sure her 5-year-old daughter Willow Sage never feels left out.

“I literally put Jameson down when she walks in the room,” Pink tells the host. “ a little weepy these days so we’re working it out.”

The “Raise Your Glass” singer says she is putting forth her best efforts when it comes to keeping the peace between the brother-sister duo. She even threw Willow a “big sister party” in the wake of Jameson’s arrival.

“Congrats Big Sis! #bigsisterparty,” Pink captioned a photo of herself, a sleeping Jameson and a smiling Willow in front of a cluster of balloons.

Pink and Carey Hart Welcome Second Child Jameson Moon

Pink and her husband Carey Hart welcomed Jameson on Monday, Dec. 26. The singer broke the news via social media two days later.

Willow seemed to be welcoming the new baby just fine, as she was shown in an Instagram photo sporting a wide grin as she held her new brother. And she even spent time gearing up for the little boy’s arrival.

“Dry Runs,” Pink wrote alongside an Instagram photo of Willow diapering a baby doll.

7 ‘If We’re Not Married By…’ Pacts That Actually Ended In Marriage

In “How I Met Your Mother,” Ted and Robin make an agreement that if they’re still single at 40, they’ll just marry each other. 

Spoiler alert: They do eventually end up together (with a whole lot of ups and downs in between). But to our surprise, this kind of thing isn’t just a pop culture trope; it happens in real life too.

Read on for seven stories of real couples who made similar “if we’re not married by…” pacts and actually ended up together. Some didn’t wait until the agreed-upon age, but that doesn’t make their love stories any less sweet. 

1. We made the pact as a joke in high school. At 30, we tied the knot.

“Brittany and I were in each other’s lives longer than my memory will go back. We were always good friends, but got really close in middle school and high school. Sometime in high school we started joking that if we were both single at 30, then we would get married. At 24 we started hanging out a lot. By 25 we were in an official relationship. And on our 30th birthday (yes, we share that) we were married. We didn’t force anything because of the pact we made. It all happened as it was supposed to. We celebrated our first ‘birthiversary’ earlier this month, and we are still madly in love!” ― Byron 

2. After some heart break, we made the marriage pact in jest. Now we’re 30 and planning a wedding.

“Rey and I met online and became good friends when we were both 23, and since we lived 2000 miles apart, it was only a friendship. After each of us had a few bad relationships and shared mutual heartaches, we jokingly made our pact; If by 30, if we were still single, I’d take the leap of faith, move across country and we would date for a year or two before getting married. We both tried dating others, but by 28, we reconnected through social media. Our friendship grew and when the pact was mentioned again, we both embraced it. I moved to Texas in 2014, and now at 30, we are happily engaged and planning a wedding for the spring of 2018.” ― Heather W.

3. We decided on age 33, but destiny couldn’t wait that long.

“Jason and I met in high school in 1996 (we were 17) and ended up going to senior prom together since neither of us had dates. We decided that we were such good friends that if we weren’t married to other people in 2011 by the time we turned 33 (our birthdays are five days apart) that we’d marry each other. Fast forward to 1997 when we had our first child before getting married on Valentine’s Day in 2000. We were both so scared of finding ‘the one’ so young that we fought it, but fate had plans for us and they couldn’t wait until 2011! We now have two children, 16 years of marriage and are looking forward to old age together. Even when we are angry with each other, we can find a laugh because our friendship is so strong. It’s pretty damn awesome.” ― Dawn-Maia S.

4. We agreed that if we were single at 30, we’d get together. At 34, we were married.

“I first met Burnill in fourth grade and didn’t like him one bit. When we were 13 we met again at a skating rink while I was on a date with his friend and he was on a blind date with my friend. We eventually started spending time together, and we became a couple at 16. We broke up and lost touch for about a year after, and ran into each other again when we were 18. That’s when we made our pact that if we weren’t both married at 30 then we would get married. After this I didn’t see him for about nine years until he found me on Facebook. At the time I was married and had two kids. About six years later, I was single and he contacted me again via Facebook. We got married at 34 and have one beautiful little boy together, along with my two older children.” ― Rae M.

5. We started out as best friends with an “if we’re still single at 30…” agreement. Six months later, we were husband and wife. 

“My best friend of 10 years said to me one day in a group conversation that if we weren’t with anyone by the time she was 30 (she was 25 at the time) that we would have to be together. As beautiful as she was/is, I never made a move because I used to date her best friend, so I thought the ‘girl code’ would halt my advances. Sure enough, once she said that, I was like, ‘Hold up, she’s possibly into me?!’ So I made the move! Six months after that conversation, we got married. It was a fairly easy transition. Currently married for three years with two children. I’m loving every moment of it.”― Korderius D.

6. We made the pact in college. Two years later we were married ― long before age 40.

“Sarah and I became best friends after working as EMTs on our college ambulance service. We were never single at the same time, so when I was 20 and she was 22 we made a pact to get married when I was 40 if we were both single. I made it to age 22 before asking her to marry me. Our wedding was in 2013 and it was a ton of fun ― she’s a private pilot and I’m in the Air Force so we had a formation flight before exchanging vows on the taxiway at the small airport where she learned to fly.” ― Ahmed H.

7. We agreed to be each other’s backup spouse if we weren’t married by 30. Just a few years later, we got married. 

“I met Sam in 2010 during our freshman year of college. At the time we were both seeing other people, but we became very good friends very quickly mostly because of our mutual interest in self deprecation. Sometime that year we were talking about the inevitability of our current partners giving up on us and decided we should probably have some sort of contingency plan so we didn’t die miserable and alone. We decided if we were both single when we were 30, we would give up on love and resign ourselves to lives of senseless banter. She and I were 18 and 19, respectively. We decided we did actually love each other, so we moved our timetable up a bit and got married in April of 2013.” ― Ethan W.

SPECIAL TIP UPDATE!

We’re Still Reeling After ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ Pulled A ‘Game Of Thrones’ Thursday Night

We hope you’re sitting down. 

If you’d lost interest in “How To Get Away With Murder” over the last season or two amid the spinning cheerleaders, dizzying flashbacks, flash forwards and those incestuous siblings who ruined Season 2, we forgive you. Things got pretty convoluted there.

But the ABC drama delivered one of its finest hours on Thursday night when it was finally revealed who was under the sheet and found dead in the fire that destroyed Annalise Keating’s home. 

SPOILER ALERT: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the midseason finale of “HTGAWM” titled “Who’s Dead?”

The tragic life of law student Wes Gibbins (Alfred Enoch) was cut short in Thursday night’s episode when his half-burned body was found in the fire during the closing moments of the midseason finale. No, seriously. Like Two-Face-Harvey-Dent-style kind of burned. 

This marks the most major death on the series to date since Annalise’s husband Sam was killed in Season 1. “HTGAWM” was always twisty, but we never expected them to off one of the main characters in such a gruesome fashion.

The audience was led to believe Wes was alive and well just two episodes before when we flashed forward to him seemingly selling Annalise out to detectives who were hellbent on pinning a murder on the law professor. But “HTGAWM” has always skillfully used time as disorienting plot device and revealed that this exchange occurred before the fire. 

To make matters even worse, we discovered Wes had been killed prior to the explosion, setting up a whole new mystery for the back half of Season 3. 

Oh, puppy, we hardly knew you. 

Fans promptly freaked out on social media to express their varying degrees of shook-ness after Shondaland claimed another beloved character to roam the TV afterlife with McDreamy and the rest of the “Grey’s Anatomy” cast. 

Watch HuffPost’s “Thursday on Friday” at 1 p.m. ET Friday to catch our interview with Alfred Enoch. 

“How To Get Away With Murder” returns Jan. 19.

Were the Beatles Right About Love?

Were the Beatles right? Is love really all you need for a good marriage? Actually that’s a terribly destructive myth.

Love at first sight is a popular notion. Some relationships begin this way and, as luck would have it, blossom into good marriages. But usually when people immediately think that they’ve found him (or her) at last, they’re in fantasy land. They are imagining a wonderful kind of life together with someone they barely know. If they marry impulsively, they may soon find that they have too little in common for a lifelong relationship. Consequently, the chemistry fades away and not much else if left to build on.

Leading with Your Brain

Love is essential for a good lasting relationship. But the brain, as well as the heart, needs to be engaged to keep (what the Righteous Brothers called) “that loving feeling” alive and growing. Singles who want to get married are often advised to make a list of ten qualities they are looking for in a mate. Doing so helps get beyond the “follow your heart” cliché and, instead, to put thought into the process of deciding who is a good prospect for marriage.

I’m a strong believer in friendship first. If you want your future husband to be your best friend as well as your lover, spend enough time with him to learn whether the two of you are likely to be compatible in the long run. You’re more likely to successfully test yourselves as friends if you act more like a friend than as a lover while getting to know him over a period of at least a few months.

What about sex?

Don’t feel bound to anyone’s time table for when the right time is to become sexually involved. You may have heard that men move on to look for someone else if “nothing happens” by the third date.

I think this may be true for men who feel entitled to sex, regardless of whether they want a noncommittal relationship or one that leads to marriage. If your goal is marriage, it makes sense to avoid getting sexually involved before you feel ready to do so both emotionally and mentally. You will want to have as much time as you need to test the relationship as objectively as possible and of course, and you may also be guided by your own value system based on what your religion’s teachings or those from another source.

Distinguishing Sex from Love

Are you able to distinguish between sex and love? Sex gets the hormones flowing, especially, in women, oxytocin, which has been called the “love hormone” — for good reason. It causes women to feel emotionally bonded and can blind them to the other person’s shortcomings that they would probably recognize if they hadn’t compromised their objectivity. By avoiding getting too physically involved too soon, you’ll give yourself time to see if a real friendship develops, and if the potential exists for spending a lifetime together.

It’s a mistake for a marriage minded woman to have sex because she feel pressured to in order to keep a man interested in her. That’s not love and it’s no basis for a friendship that might lead to marriage. A man who doesn’t respect your boundaries is not for you.

Keeping Love Flourishing in Your Marriage

If you are already married to someone who meets your basic requirements for a life partner, be grateful. But that is just the beginning. Love can grow or fade. If you want to keep love alive, it is up to you. You’ve taken the first step by choosing a partner with whom the chemistry is good and who shares enough of your interests, values and lifestyle preferences for the two of you to be compatible over time.

Benefits of Marriage Meetings

A great way to keep your relationship on track is by holding a weekly marriage meeting, which is a short, gentle conversation that cover all the basics, as described step by step in my book, Marriage Meetings for Lasting Love: 30 Minutes a Week to the Relationship You’ve Always Wanted. Marriage meetings foster romance, intimacy, teamwork, and smoother resolution of issues

By regularly investing a small amount of time and energy, you and your spouse can enjoy both love and a true friendship that lasts for a lifetime.

10 Moments From The ‘All That’ Reunion That Were All That

Ready yet? Get set. It’s the “All That” reunion! 

It’s been more than 20 years since the show first aired on Nickelodeon, and even after all that time, ’80s and ’90s kids still have a special place in their hearts for “All That.” Now, thanks to Nickelodeon’s “The Splat,” ’90s shows are coming back every night on TeenNick, so, in honor of that, the show’s cast, Kel Mitchell, Lori Beth Denberg, Danny Tamberelli and Josh Server, all reunited at New York Comic Con on Saturday to make our dreams come true.

Awwww here it goes! Here are 10 of the best moments:

 

1. Kel says he and Kenan have talked about bringing back “Good Burger.”

Mitchell already told The Huffington Post he and Kenan are working together again, but now we have more details. After being asked whether there would be more “All That” or “Good Burger,” Kel said he and Kenan have been talking.

 

2. Kel and the cast turned up. And made a video to prove it.

A video posted by Kel Mitchell (@iamkelmitchell) on

During the panel they talked about old sketches, their favorite characters and even how the got on the show. So, yeah, they turned up.

 

3. We finally know what happened to the Big Ear of Corn.

The big ear of corn was a key cast member on “All That,” perhaps the most important one of all. And now we know Danny takes care of its corn babies.

 

4. About 10 minutes in, Kel says he still loves orange soda.

Josh Server is surprised it took this long to happen.

 

5. Ed (Kel) finally shared the secret of the Good Burger sauce to Lester Oaks Construction Worker (Kenan).

Kenan was at “SNL” but Kel still shared this video of the two discussing the secret sauce.

 

6. Lori Beth Denberg gave us some vital information.

Watch out for that warm apple juice, people.

 

7. The cast says their favorite guest stars were Chris Farley, Aaliyah, TLC, Sinbad and the Spice Girls.

No argument.

 

8. Lori Beth and Danny talked about their slime PTSD.

“You have very little traction with slime in your butt crack,” said Denberg.

 

9. The cast says Chris Farley once wrecked the set so he’d only have to do the scene once.

Josh Server says it was awesome.

 

10. Oh, and this happened:

It is the best day.

16 Next-Generation Lip Glosses We’re Loving Now

Remember back in 2002 when, at any given moment, you had at least four different tubes of sticky, gloppy, blindingly shiny lip gloss nestled in your Dooney & Bourke purse, right next to your Sidekick phone? That was a tough era to go outside, since you’d inevitably wind up with your hair stuck to your lips. But now’s the time to forget everything you know about lip gloss—and everything Paris Hilton ever said, for that matter. The new crop of formulas deliver shine, tint, and moisture in a whole new (way less sticky) way.

This Theory Perfectly Explains Why ‘The Hobbit’ Movies Were So Bad

Look, some of us liked “The Hobbit” trilogy. They’re not the perfect movies, but it’s a perfect adventure. Oh, and there’s a dragon who’s a total baller.

Other people, however, didn’t really appreciate the films. In fact, they really hated them.

And that’s how frenemies are made.

The criticism has been that the movies were overly exaggerated, there was too much CGI and it didn’t need to be stretched into a trilogy. Now, a fan theory suggests the films were actually meant to be a little ridiculous and needlessly drawn out.

The Theory: “The Hobbit” films were bloated with CGI and long-winded because they represent Bilbo’s own exaggerated retellings of his adventure.

Redditor Questionbdp posed the idea as “internal justification” for why the movies were a “disappointment,” and it actually makes sense. The Redditor explains:

What Bilbo actually experienced during his adventure with the Dwarves was probably far less significant and monumental than the movies make it out to be, because the movies show how Bilbo retells his adventures, not how he actually lived them.

The theory goes on to say Bilbo probably felt bummed after he returned from his adventure to find all the other Hobbits didn’t care and were selling off all his stuff. (You nasty Hobbitses!) Because of this, he makes his story larger than life and “events which only filled a small book turned into three separate movies.”

Commenters called the theory “brilliant,” and one even joked, “Lol, Peter Jackson, is that you?”

Speaking of Jackson, even he says “The Hobbit” movies were meant to be a different tone than “Lord of the Rings,” but could this be the reason why?

In J. R. R. Tolkien‘s original stories, Bilbo authors his own memoir, There and Back Again, so it’s entirely possible that he embellished a bit. The dude was pretty good at making stuff up when explaining how he escaped the Goblin tunnels to his Dwarf bros, after all. And how else would you explain Legolas running up a crumbling tower?

Image: YouTube/MakeAGif

Ugh … #SMH.

Jackson said he doesn’t have regrets when it comes to the films, so we’re thinking he either completely missed that Legolas scene, or perhaps there’s a bigger plan at work.

Please let there be a bigger plan at work.

Jon Stewart Proves Ridiculous Interviews Over The Years Were Real

Clear your schedule. You’re going to need a lot more than one moment of zen after this.

Jon Stewart says that a big question “The Daily Show” gets asked is, “Are the interviews they do real?” The show constantly seems to have ridiculous people who share polarizing views like denouncing the notion that President Obama is the Antichrist only because he is, in fact, the second coming of Hitler. You know, stuff like that. 

Surely, these can’t be serious, right?

Well, unfortunately …

Image: Tumblr

In order to prove the show didn’t distort peoples’ views, Stewart had Jessica Williams take a camera crew to contact past interviewees. And it looks like they’re still as ridiculous as ever.

The good news is at least person doesn’t think the president is the second coming of Hitler anymore. Now, he thinks he’s the son of Satan — which is pretty much back to the Antichrist theory again. So at least it’s nice everything is coming full circle.

Jon Stewart’s final “Daily Show” as host will air Thursday night, Aug. 6 at 11:00 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.

The Impact of Marriage Equality We’re Not Discussing, But Should

A quick scan of the cable news channels or the Twittersphere shows clearly that the recent Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage has drawn sharp feelings from both sides of the issue. Most of these reactions were easily predictable. People across all media are exhibiting their feelings loudly, as the issue touches on so many potent areas of life: the political, the ethical, the moral, the religious.

But as I sift through my own feelings, I find I have a different reaction than those that seem to be most loudly expressed. I am a therapist, and I see this issue through the lens of emotion. And homosexuality and gay marriage are highly emotional issues. And we therapists possess the privilege of a unique perspective on the emotional elements of most any issue. And the emotional elements are crucial in understanding the issue overall.

For I have sat across from the young man fighting against his truth, his gay-ness, with every fiber of his being. Because it will disappoint his parents. Because he won’t be accepted or loved, but rejected. Because he has been taught that who he knows himself to be is wrong. So he fights. He fights against his very nature. The resulting anxiety and depression run so very deep.

I have sat across from the teenage girl who recognizes who she is, but loathes the fact of it, and loathes herself as a result. Because it makes her life so hard, so odd, so weird. It estranges from people she once considered safe. Thoughts of suicide hover in the shadows all around her. And yet in every conceivable way, she is better-than-fine: bright, driven, beautiful, athletic, funny. And gay.

And I have sat across from the man who has lived a lie his entire life, hiding beneath the trappings of ‘normalcy’: wife, children, house, couple of dogs. Family man. But he is tortured nonetheless. For he is gay as well, and he and those around him, he projects, would find this to be unacceptable. And now an entire family is drawn into the dark.

Unfortunately, I could share countless other stories, all sharing this theme: to be gay, to be attracted to someone, to love them organically, is not just unacceptable, but shameful.

Shameful.

With just a moment’s reflection, we all know that the forced constriction of anything authentic and genuine in ourselves will prove to be incalculably damaging. We should live in a place where one’s truth carries not a hint of shame, but joy. Only joy.

And everyone, every single one of us, deserves that feeling.

So this ruling suggests another wave in a sea change. For many people, many of my own clients in fact, can now comfort themselves with the fact that what they sense and know about themselves, this undeniable core essence of their being, is now lawful and allowable and acceptable by society’s standards. And sure, that’s good.

But it goes beyond just that, right? Because for the majority of us, our loves and attractions are actually celebrated, from crushes to dates to proms to weddings. And we don’t really need to give it a thought. There is a wild emotional divide between private shame and public celebration, and it is critical.

I like to think that a generation from now, if our sons or daughters are drawn to someone, male or female, and fall in love with that someone, that we will want to share in the joy that love will bring to their lives, and to our own.

Making ourselves unavailable to that joy ensures, and has ensured, the opposite: fear and judgment and ego, enough to keep therapists like me flush with clients for generations, treating toxic, wholly unnecessary feelings of shame and depression and relentless anxiety about something that is organic and authentic and actually quite simple.

This Supreme Court ruling is another step toward the openness we need as a society, openness that will undoubtedly have strong legs. Fewer pills will be popped to numb unnecessary pain. Fewer people will be compelled to live a lie their entire lives. Fewer people will feel a need to shield their deep reality in shame. Fewer lives will end tragically. This is no small deal.

So I celebrate today, for the emotional well-being of every gay person, man or woman,
who has suffered their love in lieu of celebration. I celebrate the deep breath they can finally draw, and the joyful, well-appointed weddings on the horizon.

Of course, upon sober reflection, we all know that legislation does not flip a switch on feelings, attitudes and emotions. These biases lag well behind.

So if you are the parent, brother, sister, teacher or friend of a gay man or woman and you find yourself bitter today, let me encourage you to turn a page. Allow yourself to open your heart and mind to them, for them and for yourself. Because the train has left the station, and you can continue to be a part of the pain and anxiety and costly emotional heartache, or serve as part of the joy.

Because love truly IS love. Simple as that.

They Were Just Trying To Protect Their Kids, But This Couple Won Marriage Equality

April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse are one of the same-sex couples behind the Supreme Court’s historic ruling that all 50 states must allow gay marriage. But the two Michigan nurses barely thought about what they’re going to do for their own wedding.

“I do believe we have a wedding to plan and some kids to adopt,” DeBoer said, after learning of their victory Friday.

She and Rowse were at a live-streamed gathering in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with their lawyers and supporters, celebrating as other couples across the state headed to county clerks’ offices to obtain marriage licenses.

The two women, who started their legal battle in 2011, ultimately joined plaintiffs from Ohio, Tennessee and Kentucky in the combined case, now known as Obergefell v. Hodges, that the Supreme Court heard. Other couples were fighting to have their home states recognize marriages performed elsewhere. DeBoer and Rowse, however, were originally seeking changes to state adoption laws.

Four years ago, the couple met attorney Dana Nessel while trying to prepare wills that would protect their children. Michigan law doesn’t allow adoption by two same-sex parents, so each of DeBoer and Rowse’s four kids has only one legally recognized parent. Each woman has adopted two of their four children, who are all age 6 or younger.

When they filed their lawsuit, U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman encouraged them to expand the case to challenge the constitutionality of Michigan’s gay marriage ban. They did, and he ruled in their favor in 2014. Friedman, who had been appointed by President Ronald Reagan, reportedly cried as he told the Detroit News on Friday that he had been praying for the Supreme Court’s decision.

“We never could have in a million years anticipated that this case … would become a marriage case at all, let alone the seminal marriage case,” Nessel said.

The Supreme Court’s majority opinion notes that protecting children is a crucial element of the case for same-sex marriage. “April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse now ask whether Michigan may continue to deny them the certainty and stability all mothers desire to protect their children, and for them and their children the childhood years will pass all too soon,” it says.

Though their kids have always been the primary concern, that’s not to say that DeBoer and Rowse aren’t looking forward to the wedding. So are Ryanne, Rylee, Jacob and Nolan, who have been hearing about marriage for years. Ryanne, 5, is eager to dress up like a princess. Rylee, 2, wants to be the flower girl, though DeBoer jokingly worried that she will throw flowers at the guests.

“To my beautiful children, we did this for you,” DeBoer said.

Polls show that public opinion has shifted in favor of marriage equality since the voters passed Michigan’s same-sex marriage ban in 2004. In a statement Friday, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) urged the state to “focus on the values we share” and “respect the judicial process.”

“Our state government will follow the law and our state agencies will make the necessary changes to ensure that we will fully comply,” Snyder said. “As Michiganders we should move forward positively, embracing our state’s diversity and striving to treat everyone with the respect and dignity they deserve.”

The victory for marriage equality does not end the debate over lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights in Michigan, though, where it is still legal to fire someone based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Earlier this month, the governor signed a law that allows publicly funded, faith-based adoption agencies to cite religious beliefs as a reason to deny services to gay couples and others. And last week, a Republican state legislator introduced a bill that would require a member of the clergy to sign off on all marriages — a potential hardship for same-sex couples.

But on Friday, county clerks in Michigan performed gay wedding ceremonies with gusto.

DeBoer and Rowse hope their own wedding will take place before the end of the summer.

Nessel described her clients-turned-friends as “ordinary people who are all at once also extraordinary and who could not have represented this case or this cause with any more dignity — or any more humor, really — than anyone else that I know.”

The attorney not only scored a win for her clients, but also will benefit personally from the Supreme Court’s decision. Speaking Friday, she thanked her two sons for often going without her presence as she fought for other kids and she thanked fiancée Alanna Maguire. Nessel proposed in April, standing on a stepstool outside the court on the afternoon that the justices heard arguments in the marriage case.

“Meeting your future same-sex spouse during your fight for same-sex marriage is kind of the most awesome story ever,” Nessel said.

17 Timeless Books Our Dads Read To Us When We Were Young

Reading to a squirming child can be a bit of a chore, especially the kind of child who demands to hear Goodnight Moon five times every night for a year and a half. Still, it’s one of the most rewarding ways parents can spend time with their little ones: fostering a love of books, cuddling, and creating lifelong memories. For parents who spend their days at work, the bedtime story can be a particularly cherished tradition.

With Father’s Day on the horizon, we wanted to remember the times our dads took the time to read a favorite book to us when we were small. Some of our dads read us Seuss, and some read us sci-fi, but one thing is for sure — we all remember the books our fathers read with us, and the joy those story times brought to our childhoods.

Below, in no particular order, HuffPosters recall the books their dads shared with them growing up. Tell us about your favorite childhood memory of reading with your dad in the comments!

1. The Hobbit

hobbit

No offense to Andy Serkis, but you haven’t heard the true voice of Gollum unless you were there when my dad read The Hobbit and the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy aloud to my brothers and me when we were little. He’s an English professor, not a voice actor, but he got into the performance aspect with gusto, and even 20 years later, I can hear his Gollum impression in my mind’s ear. Unfortunately when he tried Watership Down, the bedtime reading tradition fell apart — we couldn’t get on board with warring bunnies — but I’ll always love that he looked at us three kids, all well under the age of 10, and thought, “Yep, it’s time to tell them a story about a faceless evil power bringing an end to life as we’d like to know it.” Thanks, Dad. -Claire Fallon, Culture Writer

2. Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel

mike mulligan

Before he retired, my dad was an electrician in New York City, a job that is full of tough guys doing physical labor. I wonder if him reading Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel to me and my siblings sticks out in my mind now because it gave a humanlike face and feelings to heavy-duty machinery, much like the kind I imagined my father working with all day. It brought my dad and his looming 6-foot-6-inch stature down to our level figuratively and literally, because I think we’d usually pile around him on one of our beds or the living room couch when a reading was happening. Today, I wonder if turning the beloved steam shovel into a furnace (spoilers!!!) really was the best plot resolution, but it still stands. Or that’s just my childhood nostalgia speaking. -Jillian Capewell, Entertainment News Editor

3. The Lorax

lorax

My dad used to read The Lorax to me all the time when I was little. I’m not entirely sure why we got so into it — it must’ve just been Dr. Seuss’s entrancing meter and repetition that kept bringing us back to it. To this day we’ll still sometimes say to each other “Those trees! Those trees! Those truffula trees!” -Alexandra Svokos, College & Education Fellow

4. Father and Daughter Tales

father daughter tales

My dad and I used to always read Father and Daughter Tales before I went to bed. When he was tired, he would sometimes skip parts of the story, but I had the entire book memorized, so I always caught him. When he would finish reading, he would always ask me, “So, what’s the moral of the story?” And sometimes, when we couldn’t track down Father and Daughter Tales he would read me Mother and Daughter Tales! -Michelle Persad, Fashion Editor

5. Hop On Pop

pop

When I was really little (2 to 4 years old) and learning to read, my dad and I would read Hop On Pop by Dr. Seuss. Well, he would read it me and use his finger to point to the words. I technically couldn’t actually read what was on the pages, but I memorized the book. Then, being inspired by the message of the book, I would subsequently attempt to hop on pop. -Eva Hill, Video Editor and Lead Animator

6. Miss Nelson Is Missing!

nelson

One of my fondest memories with my dad is when he used to read books to my sister, brother, and I. Some of the books that were a part of that childhood memory are Abiyoyo by Pete Seeger and Owl Moon by Jane Yolen, which both hold special places in my heart. But our ultimate favorite that Dad would read was Miss Nelson Is Missing! by Harry Allard. Why? Because as my dad puts it, “You guys were really surprised that the mean substitute teacher was Miss Nelson!” -Jacqueline Howard, Associate Editor, HuffPost Science

7. Officer Buckle and Gloria

gloria

When I was little, my dad would read to me every night before bed. One of my favorite books we read together was Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann. It’s the story of a police officer who tours the town of Napville teaching kids about safety. (The name “Napville” never struck me as odd before now … possibly because nap time was always a mandatory Williams family activity). Officer Buckle’s presentation receives a little spice with the addition of Gloria, a police dog with a penchant for dramatics. As Officer Buckle lists off his safety tips, Gloria acts out each potential catastrophe behind him, delighting their young audience. The story is funny, heartwarming, and features an acting dog, so basically I was in little-kid heaven. Even so, I’d often ask my dad to “read it funny,” at which point he’d go off-script and make up a nonsensical story, complete with voices and silly faces. I would laugh hysterically. And even after all this time, I still live by Officer Buckle’s Safety Tip #77: Never stand on a swivel chair. -Abigail Williams, Associate Social Media Editor

8. Frog and Toad Are Friends

frog

My dad would read Arnold Lobel’s Frog and Toad Are Friends to me and my sister — in particular the story “A Lost Button,” in which Toad loses a button off his jacket, and then he and Frog search for it. They find a bunch of buttons, but none of them are Toad’s. When my dad read us the story, he would read Toad’s dialogue with a mounting, apoplectic rage that I’m pretty sure Lobel didn’t include in the original version. “That is not my button,” my dad would snarl in Toad’s voice. “That button is SQUARE. My button is ROUND.” Obviously, hearing Toad grow closer and closer to snapping completely and murdering his best friend was, to me and my sister, the funniest thing in the world. -Alexander Eichler, News Editor

9. Tom Brown’s School Days

tom

My dad read a book out loud to me and my brother that no one has ever mentioned since to me: Tom Brown’s School Days. Never heard of it? That’s because your parent did not grow up in freshly independent India, in the shadow of the British Raj. Frankly, I don’t remember much about the actual story beyond a blur of boys and green fields. (A quick Wikipedia skim tells me the semi-autobiography was set in a country school in England — Rugby School — where in the early 1800s the book’s author, Thomas Hughes, got schooled). What I do remember is the Pavlovian thrill the sight of that worn and stark blue cover — no illustrations — stirred in me each night my dad brought it down from the shelf. This was the end of the day, the only time where I actually knew precisely where we all were for a stretch of time. It could have been any book. -Mallika Rao, Culture Reporter

10. The Napping House

napping house

My dad Kevin didn’t just read stories — The Napping House by Audrey Wood was always in the rotation — he was also amazing at making them up. “The Four Bears and The Red Bud Berries” was a favorite for my three siblings and me. Now he reads to and makes up stories for my kids, Eli and Henry, and man oh man, it melts my heart. -Katie Nelson, National Editor

11. Day of Infamy

infamy

I know what you’re thinking: A 1957 non-fiction book about the attack on Pearl Harbor isn’t exactly sentimental. Bear with me. My father, a surgeon, worked very long hours. But he always made time for me — on weekends, at nights before I went to sleep — and he liked nothing more than sharing his vast knowledge about history. He got that knowledge from books, most of which he kept in the library that was across the hallway from my bedroom.

It’s still there, with deep brown wood bookcases that go from floor to ceiling, only now he’s had to pile the books two deep in some places. He’d also taken over the shelves in another part of the house, much to my poor mother’s occasional dismay. But I get it. The library was the room that always made me happiest. I’d sit there for hours, plucking titles off the shelves and flipping through them in my father’s beat-up recliner chair.

Day of Infamy was one of the first “adult” books I could read as a kid. I must have gone through it a dozen times, which seems weird until you put yourself in the mind of an 11- or 12-year-old. Reading it made me feel grown-up. It made me feel like Dad. And that made me feel good. By the way, I’ve tried hard to carry on that tradition with my own two boys, both of whom hang out in my library and, before bed, demand that I give them history lessons. I’m not sure how much they like the history and how much they just like hanging out with me. But I don’t really care and I imagine my father has always felt the same way. -Jonathan Cohn, Senior National Correspondent

12. Make Way For Ducklings

duck

I have fond memories of reading a number of “vintage” books with my dad when I was little. One of our favorites was Make Way For Ducklings by Robert McCloskey. It’s a book that’s been around for a while, but the black-and-white drawings are still packed with action. I remember appreciating how the policemen went out of their way to assist the ducks and keep them safe during their journey to the pond. And when I visited Boston many years later, I was excited to see the statues of the Mallard family in Boston Common. Seeing them brought back memories of the many evenings my dad and I spent sharing the ducklings’ story together. -Sara Bondioli, Deputy Politics Editor

13. The Call of the Wild

wild

In middle school we had to read The Call of the Wild, which literally bored me to tears. To encourage me, my dad promised to read every chapter with me — he even took notes. At the end of the chapters we’d sit down and discuss what had happened and what we thought would happen next. Though it’s far from being one of my favorite books, I sort of like it, because without reading it, I would have never had that bonding experience with my dad. -Yagana Shah, Huff/Post50 Associate Editor

14. Into the Land of the Unicorns

unicorns

My dad demonstrated incredible patience in repeatedly reading first-grade me a novel called Into the Land of the Unicorns. It involved a young girl who got magically transported into a bizarre unicorn-inhabited land to deliver a secret message to the queen unicorn. Needless to say, this was probably not riveting reading material for a man in his 40s, but my dad persevered with enthusiasm and a (semi-limited) range of voices for different characters. -Hilary Hanson, Crime and Weird News Editor

15. Curious George Goes to an Ice Cream Shop

curious george

When I was little, I loved reading Curious George with my dad. The most memorable book from the series is Curious George Goes to an Ice Cream Shop. It indulged my love of ice cream while instilling the importance of patronizing local businesses, even if the owners are a little crabby. -Katelyn Bogucki, Multimedia Producer

16. Ender’s Game

ender

I never was that into science fiction (not much has changed), but somehow, when I was in elementary school, my dad coaxed me into reading Ender’s Game, one of the many Orson Scott Card books he read. I loved it, and have probably read it a dozen times since. Looking back, it’s no surprise a story about a student chosen for a special adventure to save the world appealed to a daydreamy, bookish kid — it’s actually just like Harry Potter, if Harry Potter had futuristic technology of the ‘80s instead of magic and a space station instead of a wizard school. At the time, I loved having something to bond over with my dad, and also read all of the (much more boring) sequels for that reason. Now, I’m grateful that he taught me the rewards of being adventurous in my reading and otherwise, pushed me to take chances on the unfamiliar and took the time to share something he genuinely loved with his daughter. -Kate Abbey-Lambertz, Detroit Editor

17. The Golden Compass

compass

I grew up in a family that loved science fiction and fantasy, so one of the first books that I remember bonding with my dad about with was The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. The protagonist Lyra was a fearless, talkative girl who was highly intelligent and loved adventure. That book was the beginning of our love for other fantasy and young adult books — including Harry Potter, Stargirl and The Lord of the Rings. Because Father’s Day and my birthday happen around the same time every year, it’s a special time for my dad and I to talk to each other about books and what we’re reading — as well as our love of reading. The written word has evolved from handwritten letters to words on a page to texting — and I wouldn’t trade the evolution of my relationship with my dad and our love of reading for anything. -Madeline Wahl, Blogs & Community Associate Editor

BONUS: Fermat’s Enigma: The Epic Quest to Solve the World’s Greatest Mathematical Problem

fermat

When I was about 11, my dad, an engineer with a sick sense of humor, informed me that if I wanted to return to camp that summer, I would have to read and report on Fermat’s Enigma: The Epic Quest to Solve the World’s Greatest Mathematical Problem, the scintillating, true tale of a mathematician doing … math stuff. I have no idea if my dad was actually trying to get me interested in something he enjoyed, or was just playing a cruel parenting joke. While I complained and put it off ’til the last minute, I did read the entire thing, and I think I understood it. I maybe even secretly enjoyed the historical drama parts, but now I can remember the taunting image of Fermat’s face on the cover of Simon Singh’s book better than I could explain what an + bn = cn means. Still, this story is one of my favorites about me and my dad, one of the most revealing about our relationship and bound to crack us up if we retell it. -Kate Abbey-Lambertz, Detroit Editor

If a tree falls in the woods, and you’re not there to hear it, wouldn’t you want it to fall on that friend who posts WAY too many inspirational quotes on Facebook?

Ah, the inspirational quote. On social media, it’s like a language all its own. Whatever event is happening in someone’s life, their is an eye-catching image and some pretty-fonted words to express the emotion attached to that event. But sometimes these inspirational quotes reach just a bit too far, and they need to be brought back down to earth.

The Six-Figure Club: 6 of the Most Expensive Handbags Ever Sold at Auction Were Hermes Birkins

Prepare to rethink what splurging on accessories can really mean. The most expensive bag to sell at auction hit the chopping block at Christie’s last week, going for $ 221,844 at an auction in Hong Kong. It was a pink crocodile Hermès Birkin studded with diamonds—and it was sold to an unnamed bidder over the phone.

The idea of a handbag bringing in big money is nothing new. Before last week’s sale, here were the top sells—believe it or not six of the seven most expensive handbags ever sold at auction were Birkins.

Not a Birkin for $ 218,500 in 2011: A diamond and gold style previously owned by Elizabeth Taylor takes the honor as the only non Birkin to make the list. The details reported by WSJ are scant, but a flick through the 2011 auction catalog that previewed her jewelry (the section where the high-rolling bag was included) show both a golden clutch and a Fred Leighton elephant bag that was gifted to Taylor from Michael Jackson as a birthday present.

Birkin for $ 203,150 in 2015: Before Monday’s record-setting sale, this was the most expensive Birkin to sell at auction.

Birkin for $ 185,000 in 2014: Last fall the below Birkin, made of Himalayan Nilo Crocodile and including a total of 9.84 carats of diamonds, sold in Beverly Hills.

hermes-birkin-python-gold-diamond-bag

Birkin for $ 113,525 in 2011: A blue croc Birkin went at the same Dallas auction the the previous record-setter did.

Birkin for $ 95,000 in 2011: Also in Dallas: a red croc Birkin.

Birkin for $ 80,663 in 2011: A third Hermès Birkin made bank at the same Dallas sale.

In case you’re curious, the world’s most expensive handbag is thought to be Mouawad’s “1001 Nights” purse. The 18-carat-gold bag has 4,517 yellow, pink, and colorless diamonds, combining for an impressive 381.92 carats, and has been estimated at $ 3.8 million.

Now, come meet another (non-Birkin) bag that’s super luxe and super covetable:

How We’re Reacting To Bath And Body Works Reissuing The Most Nostalgic Scents Of All Time

Body spray enthusiasts, rejoice!

Bath & Body Works, your favorite middle school hangout, announced Friday that it would reintroduce six of its most iconic scents, just in time for summer.

Cucumber Melon, Country Apple, Juniper Breeze, Pearberry, Plumeria and White Tea & Ginger will be available in-stores and online from June 8 – July 5. As Phuong Ireland, Director of Brand Development for Bath & Body Works shared, customers “have amazing memories and stories of” these scents.

While the fancy new packaging is nice, it would be pretty exciting if the old bottles (which you can still purchase online!) came along with the great news.

The brand’s Instagram, which boasts a cool (as a cucumber melon) one million followers, proves that people are just as committed to the brand now as they were in the ’90s and early 2000s.

With the return of these six classic scents, which Ireland calls “iconic to the Bath & Body Works heritage and what we were known for for a long time,” it’s safe to say the delightfully overpowering smell of White Tea & Ginger Body Spray will soon be invading an office building near you.

Which scent are you most excited for? Check out some of our favorite Bath & Body Works memories and reactions below, and share yours in the comments!

“I was obsessed with the Cucumber Melon lotion — I would put it on before every middle school mixer/dance (I went to an all girls’ school, so our monthly mixers were the only time we got to socialize with boys). Cucumber Melon lotion, mascara, pink shiny lip gloss, brightly-colored polo, jean skirt, and flip flops — it was a uniform. There was a sad moment at some point in 8th grade when I realized I had over-exposed myself to the smell and didn’t like it anymore…” Hollis Miller, Associate Social Editor, Voices

“I went through many bottles of Cucumber Melon body splash in middle school (and yes, it was BODY SPLASH, not a normal term like body spray). It’s now indelibly associated with the bathrooms where we’d all change after gym class. Our school did not have showers. Thank God the fruity smell of Cucumber Melon mingled perfectly with our B.O.” Claire Fallon, Books Editor

“Going to the mall with just your friends was the first step towards independence in suburbia, and my earliest mall hangs always included stops at Bath & Body Works. I would consistently try out all the different scents and then inevitably settle on Cucumber Melon. Satisfying every damn time.” Emma Gray, Senior Editor, Women

“Ah, what better place to linger the mall as a teen after I had already stocked up on various pairs of Limited Too sweatpants with “SPOILED” written across the ass. (But that’s another thinkpiece for another day?) I remember feeling compelled to buy the Cucumber Melon hand sanitizer with the blue beads in it because all the cool, pretty teachers compulsively put it on after accidentally making skin to skin contact with any of us.” Lauren Zupkus, Associate Social Editor, Entertainment

“Juniper Breeze was my jam. I thought it spelled so good, but I think the sheer AMOUNT I put on might’ve made it a boy-repellent (or maybe that was just my bangs + braces combo).” Carly Ledbetter, Associate Lifestyle Editor

“Not to be a debbie downer, but I HATE(D) Cucumber Melon. I used to slather my hands with Juniper Breeze hand sanitizer in high school, though. And if you were in my group of friends, you gave each other mini bottles of lotion before Christmas break as gifts. #besties4lyfe” Taylor Trudon, Senior Editor, Young Voices

“There was a theory going around my tiny Catholic middle school that boys liked you better if you smelled like apple pie. (circa 2006-2010) To this day I believe that my Country Apple body lotion secured me my first boyfriend.” Mia Fermindoza, Photo Operations Assistant

“I was driving to the mall when I was 16. My guy friend found my car stash of Plumeria and started spraying it all over the car. I turned my head to yell at him, rolled into the car in front of me at the stoplight, then paid off the man for hitting his car with a check for $ 75 (all but a penny of all my babysitting money,) so my parents didn’t find out I’d crashed into someone.” Janie Campbell, Senior Editor, Miami

The 2 Things Women Want In Bed That We’re Not Talking About

A month or so back, I found myself in a gay club dancing with lovely men who made me feel fun, sexy and beautiful, but had absolutely no interest in tempting me away from my domestic haven.

However, I came home from that experience feeling restless and mid-life crisis-y.

I realized my 17-year relationship (now-marriage) had some predictable sexual patterns, which happens in any long-term relationship. But suddenly, I felt a strong compulsion to break free of those patterns. (Could it be turning 50?)

Though I wanted to shake things up, I knew swinging, polyamory or, in turn-of-the-century Lady Mary/”Downton Abbey” vernacular, “taking a lover” would be the death knell of my treasured marriage, therefore not the kind of “shaking things up” I wanted to do.

So, I turned to my man for help.

What makes my husband so incredibly badass is that when I said, “I think I’m having a midlife crisis. I’m sexually bored.” He instantly replied, “Let’s do something about it!”

Realizing it was my issue, not his, I went to see my former font-of-wisdom (a.k.a. therapist) and admitted that I didn’t want the intimate, tender lovemaking that typified my bedroom. Instead, I found books and movies where women are sexually ravished and even aggressively taken exciting. And that I judged myself for it.

I’ve been a sex columnist, which suggests Sexual Libertine, but in many ways I’m repressed. I was raised Mormon, so my psychological, sexual landscape has definitely been impacted by the sexual repression in that culture leaving me to to frequent battle with the Morality Police, priggish Jacques and Ferrar, that live inside my head.

My therapist, who is often a place of temperate permission, explained that she believes, and I quote:

“The ravishment fantasy is most likely the rule for women, rather than the exception.”

 

She cited a recent documentary on the endangered big cat, the Canadian Lynx, where she described how aggressive the male is with the female during the mating ritual.

The male will bite the female’s neck, scratching her and holding her down forcefully. My doc surmised that humans most likely have a genetic or biological sexual impulse that is very similar to that of animals.

After my session, whilst googling the keyphrase: What do Women Want in Bed? I stumbled on a recent Ask Men article titled, 5 Things Women Secretly Want In Bed. Two of them made my Morality Police, irascible Jacques and Ferrar, take note.

The author wrote:

#1 Get Aggressive In Bed: Just about every woman I encountered had the words ‘more aggressive sex’ rolling off her tongue. From being tied up and spanked to having their hair pulled and being mildly asphyxiated, the women were quite enthusiastic about aggressive sex. Of course, I’m not implying that you should go home and smack your (lady) up, but instead, maybe a little roughing in the bedroom can work wonders for your sex life.

#3 Treat Her Like A Prostitute: (Shannon here: this language might offend the feminists in many of us. But I agree with the spirit of the note.)

Ah, fantasies, the beauty of them lies in the fact that many are not realized. But as one woman put it: ‘I am tired of being that precious lady in the bedroom. I’m tired of making love and doing things gently all the time.’ (Shannon quietly raises hand)

‘I want him to have raunchy sex with me and talk to me as though he just met me and cares nothing about what I want. I want him to ravish me like an animal and tell me to be quiet whenever I try to say something.’

I guess, in the end, there are plenty of women who want to be, for lack of a better word, slutty in the bedroom. They simply fear that if they behave in such a manner, then their men will think less of them, and some are even afraid that their men will mistakenly begin treating them differently outside the bedroom as well. All the same, many women are big fans of scenarios such as the one described.

In the last quote I particularly appreciate that the author has made a distinction between what women like in bed versus what they prefer in real life.

All of this is food for thought and a catalyst to ex-communicate the puritanical, prudish, Victorian Jacques and Ferrar with regards to my midlife ennui.

I recognize that my sexual relationship with my husband hasn’t stopped growing. It’s been stunted a bit by the last 13 years of raising children, but there is nothing that says we can’t pick up the reins and continue to grow and even surprise each other as the years unfold.

I think the ace we have up our sleeve is genuine goodwill toward each other and a willingness to communicate, even the trickiest most vulnerable, uncomfortable stuff.
