Eli Roth and Wife Lorenza Izzo Announce They’re Separating ‘So We Don’t F—ing Kill Each Other

Eli Roth and his wife Lorenza Izzo announced their separation with joint Instagram posts on Tuesday.

The director — best known for the Hostel series — and actress shared the statement in both English and Spanish, letting fans know they were ending their marriage after tying the knot in November 2014. Roth, 46, and Izzo, 28, married on the beach in her home country of Chile.

“It is with deep love and respect that we are choosing to separate as a couple,” the statement begins. “We’ve had an incredible journey together, we love each other very much, and will remain the best of friends. We are grateful for the six wonderful years together but have decided to go our own separate ways to have the most fulfilled, joyous lives we can.”

In a humorous note, they also added that they “wish to continue working together creatively and are ultimately separating so we don’t f—ing kill each other.”

The two have collaborated on projects like The Green Inferno, Knock, Knock and Hemlock Grove. Roth has turned to producing and directing in recent years while Izzo turned from modeling to acting in horror films.

This was the first marriage for the pair.

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.”

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Don’t Ask, Just Sell

‘Leadership, social consciousness, corporate vision. One could spend eons pondering their components. What wouldn’t cross the frontal lobe: burying one’s head in the sand in the face of uncomfortable questions.
Yet that, it seems, is the retail way, at least across broad swaths of the industry. In preparing a piece on the current state of the fur industry, published last Thursday, WWD approached 22 retailers around the world for their points of view. Only nine were willing to address the subject. Subtracting out the fur-free contingent, that number fell to four.
Those out of the fur business: YNAP, David Jones and Myer, by choice, and Maxfield and Fred Segal, by West Hollywood municipal mandate. Chief executive officer Allison Samek noted that Fred Segal has expanded the fur-free ethos to its other outlets as well. Dropping fur, everything from handbag charms to trimmed parkas to major outerwear, is a huge move. Whatever each organization’s specific arrival process, it must have also been a tough one that involved some loss of business. Yet all made and are at peace with their decisions.

Kourtney Kardashian Cracks Down on Scott Disick’s Behavior: ‘I Don’t Want the Kids to See Him Like This’

Kourtney Kardashian isn’t happy with Scott Disick‘s behavior on this season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

In a sneak peek at Sunday’s episode, Kourtney, 38, escapes Los Angeles for a California road trip with her sisters — but she can’t escape the ongoing drama with her ex.

In one scene, Khloé, 33, urges her sister to give Disick, 34, some “tough love.”

“I don’t want the kids to see him like this,” admits Kourtney, who shares three children with Disick: son Mason, 7, daughter Penelope, 5, and son Reign, 2.

This season, Kourtney and Disick — who were together for nine years before she officially ended things in 2015 — have been at odds over Disick’s partying, combined with his refusal to accept that Kourtney is moving on with her life.

“How is it that she’s allowed to throw up in bed and I have to go to rehab if I do something like that?” Disick — who has struggled with alcohol abuse — said in an earlier episode after his ex celebrated her birthday by taking a wild girls trip to Mexico in April.

“Kourtney having a good time makes me happy,” he said. “But of course, in the back of my heart and mind I get a little jealous, because I wish we could have had some of those times while we were together.”

RELATED VIDEO: Scott Disick Is ‘Jealous’ of Kourtney Kardashian Partying on Birthday Trip to Mexico

 

In the two and a half years since their split, Disick has regularly been spotted cozying up to different women in Los Angeles, New York City and abroad — most recently with 19-year-old Sofia Richie, whom a source recently told PEOPLE is calling Disick her “boyfriend.”

Kourtney, meanwhile, is dating 24-year-old Younes Bendjima — and in the KUWTK 10th anniversary special (which aired last month but was taped in April), she indicated that she and Disick aren’t likely to reconcile.

“I guess we’re co-parenting our kids and just trying to get along,” she said. “He’s family. But I mean, we’re definitely psychotic.”

“The debauchery that’s gone on has definitely closed the door several billion times,” she added. “He for a time period, he can’t be consistent.”

“Here’s the thing,” Disick said. “Every time I become too good of a person, she stops loving me, because she fell in love with a person who was a little bit f—ed up. I treat you like royalty, you don’t say hello to me. I spit in your face, you’re like, ‘Hey babe.’ ”

Angelina Jolie Opens Up in New Interview: ‘I Don’t Enjoy Being Single’

 

Angelina Jolie is opening up about life after her split from Brad Pitt.

In a new interview with the Sunday Telegraph, the 42-year-old star — who filed for divorce from Pitt last year after a 12-year relationship and two-year marriage — admits that the process has taken a heavy emotional toll on her.

“Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together,” she says. “But really I am just trying to get through my days.”

“I don’t enjoy being single,” she adds. “It’s not something I wanted. There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.”

Jolie, who underwent a preventive double mastectomy in 2013, had her ovaries removed in 2015 and last year, in addition to hypertension, developed Bell’s Palsy, says her health issues have also been weighing on her.

“Emotionally it’s been a very difficult year,” she says. “And I have some other health issues. So my health is something I have to monitor.”

“I feel sometimes that my body has taken a hit, but I try to laugh as much as possible,” she adds. “We tend to get so stressed that our children feel our stress when they need to feel our joy. Even if you are going through chemo, you need to find the ability to love and laugh. It may sound like a postcard, but it’s true.”

FROM PEN: Nicole Kidman Learned a ‘Great Life Lesson’ from Baz Luhrmann During Her Divorce

 

Jolie also discussed her latest directorial offering, First They Killed My Father, which premiered at the Telluride Film Festival on Saturday and received high praise.

The film is an adaptation of Loung Ung‘s 2000 memoir of the Khmer Rouge genocide, which was responsible for the class-driven murders of millions of Cambodians between 1975 and 1978. The story holds a special significance for Jolie and her eldest son Maddox, now 16, whom she adopted in Cambodia when he was three months old.

“Mad has known of Loung’s story his whole life, and I told him, ‘One day, son, you will be ready and you will tell me it’s time to go deeply into your country. But I need your help and you have to work and you have to be there every day and you can’t say no and that you are tired,’ ” Jolie recalls. “And one day he said, ‘I am ready.’ ”

Now, Jolie says she has no immediate plans for either acting or directing — but instead is focusing on life at home with her six children.

“I am going to cooking classes,” she says. “Cooking is one of those things you do when you are settled in your life and you can take the time. But somehow I am just very impatient and I am a little bit erratic.”

“But I am getting into it now,” she adds. “I feel like, if I cook, the kids can all hang out. Although they often take over and tell me that they can do it better.”

And kitchen skills aside, Jolie admits there is more she wants to work on.

“I think now I need to rediscover a little bit of the old me,” she says. “I think we lose our way a bit. I have had a lot happen in my life, from certain people passing to health issues to raising the children. And it’s been a very good time to absorb and develop and grow.”

“But maybe now that my kids are growing up I am starting to realize that my own sense of play has been put on hold for a while,” she continues. “And maybe them hitting their teens is going to bring out a little more fun in Mom. So maybe I am going back. It may be time.”

Texans Told to Evacuate Ahead of Hurricane Harvey as Massive Storm Approaches: ‘Don’t Take Any Chances’

Texas residents are being told to evacuate and take all necessary precautions as Hurricane Harvey is expected to touch down on Friday night, in the strongest hurricane to make landfall in the Texas Coastal Bend in nearly 50 years.

“I strongly urge all Texans to heed warnings from your local officials and I also urge that you immediately follow evacuation orders for all impacted counties — particularly in the Corpus Christi and Houston areas where the storm surges and flooding from Hurricane Harvey are most likely,” Gov. Greg Abott said in a statement.

Harvey, which is expected to touch down Friday night or early Saturday morning along the Texas Gulf Coast, is expected to bring up to 35 inches of rain, CNN reports. Flood waters and destructive waves could reach heights of up to 12 feet along the Texas coast.

The storm, currently Category 2, is expected to become a Category 3 hurricane by time it makes landfall with winds of more than 100 mph, CNN reports. As it strengthens, forecasters said Harvey will be the nation’s first Category 3 hurricane to make landfall in nearly 12 years, according to The Weather Channel.

Officials have labeled Harvey a “life-threatening storm” that will put millions of people in a “grave risk,” the Associated Press reports.

“Please take all necessary precautions to save your life and to minimize risks,” Gov. Abott added in the statement. “Don’t take any chances and evacuate when you are ordered.”

Now, local businesses in the storms path are shutting down and residents are clearing out grocery stores in preparation. Meanwhile, Corpus Christi’s Driscoll Children’s Hospital was airlifting 10 sick, premature babies from its neonatal intensive care unit to a hospital in Fort Worth, according to the AP.

The infants were expected to arrive at the hospital by early Friday and an official told the publication that hospital staff feared that power outages at the Corpus Christie hospital might disable the babies’ ventilators.

Daring Rescues in the Wake of Hurricane Matthew

Abott has requested that 700 National Guard members be activated for the storm and Ports of Corpus Christi and Galveston are closed, according to CNN.

Residents lined up during the week to catch buses to safer areas and roads were packed with backpack-carrying residents heading out of town.

“I’m shaking inside, but for them, I’m trying to be strong,” a Corpus Christi mother of two said, according to CNN.

Wife of American Barcelona Victim Speaks Out: ‘I Don’t Want to Wake Up Without Him Next to Me

The wife of the California man who died after a van attack in Barcelona, Spain, on Thursday said she feels “empty” without him.

In a sit-down with NBC News, Heidi Nunes-Tucker, 40, opened up about losing husband Jared Tucker, 42, during their first wedding anniversary trip through Italy, France and Spain.

“I’d found my person: truly the love of my life. That was obvious to anybody that knew us or saw us,” she said. “And I don’t know that you find that again, and I don’t know that I want to.”

Nunes-Tucker shared that she is struggling to cope with the fact that she won’t have her husband beside her for the everyday events.

“I don’t want to wake up without him next to me, and I don’t want to watch TV without him,” she explained. “All of it is just going to be a lot more empty.”

Nunes-Tucker said that the duo were stopping for sangria at a café on the popular street of La Rambla on their way to the beach. They separated when Tucker went to find a bathroom.

“No more than … 30 seconds to a minute after he left, all mayhem broke out and people were screaming and crying and running,” Nunes-Tucker said.

A van had begun plowing through pedestrians, ultimately killing 13 and injuring scores more.

She was pushed inside the souvenir kiosk and stayed there hiding until the chaos was over. Afterwards, she was unable to find Tucker.

Nunes-Tucker felt a sense of hope when she saw a photo of her husband after the attack appearing to receive helped by someone. However, that optimism shattered when she went to a police station and cops revealed Tucker had died in the attack.

“It’s hard not to be angry,” she said. “It’s confusing why anybody would want to hurt anybody like that. Why would you want to hurt strangers? Why would you want to hurt anybody?”

RELATED VIDEO: Missing California Man Was Killed In Barcelona Attack, Says Dad

Tucker, who was excited to share this special anniversary trip with his soul mate, never mentioned any hesitation about visiting Europe, despite it being the target of a series of deadly terror attacks in recent years, according to a close friend.

“He didn’t live a life afraid, he didn’t have fear of anything,” Billy Claraty told PEOPLE. “He took things head on all the time and thought he would get through it. They were just out to celebrate one year and have a great time and see some friends.”

In September of 2012 at an art and wine festival in Lafayette, California, Tucker opened his heart to Nunes, a teacher and the mother of a teenage son.

“When he met her, it was immediate, they both knew,” says Claraty. “Heidi was his total life, they had a great, amazing relationship. He had a bumpy road for awhile with past relationships and once he met Heidi that turned around for him.”

A website set up for his wedding to Nunes shows they were married on Aug. 6, 2016, after becoming engaged on Sept. 10, 2015.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by Tucker’s family to cover funeral costs and help raise money to go towards his daughters’ education.

Don’t Even Think About Sharing That Photo Of Jessica Chastain’s Wedding Dress

On Saturday, Jessica Chastain tied the knot with fashion executive (and down-low member of Italian royalty) Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo in a private ceremony at the groom’s family estate in northern Italy. The bride wore white; attendees included fellow actors Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt and Edgar Ramirez.

That’s about all the Oscar nominee wanted the public to know. But during the wedding, paparazzi photos were taken from helicopters without the actress’ consent, making the internet rounds and turning an intimate moment into gossip fodder. 

In response to this invasion of privacy, the “Zero Dark Thirty” star confirmed her marriage and slammed the paparazzi in a note shared on social media Tuesday night that included a special request to her followers. 

“Did you hear? I’m off the market,” Chastain wrote, alongside a longer statement. “Gianluca & I got married! We wanted privacy & aren’t selling photos but I’ll post something in the future.”

She continued:

Thank you for all the sweet comments about my wedding. I love you and it was a beautiful day. I am going to ask you to please stop sharing the photos. Helicopters disregarded a no-fly zone & took those pics during the ceremony. Every time I see them I’m reminded of the insensitivity of that moment. I promise that I will share pics with you in the future, but I would prefer to share photos that celebrate love, not intrusion. I’m off social media for a few weeks. Much love and happiness to all of you.

Chastain’s stance makes sense given that she’s remained incredibly private about her relationship with Passi de Preposulo up until this point. The two have dated for nearly five years, but the actress has only given snippets of information to media outlets here and there.

Aside from revealing that she’s “very, very happy” with Passi de Preposulo, she told Extra in 2013 that it’s “a wonderful thing when a career does so well and your personal life goes so well.”

So, to make a long story short, stop, drop and scrap that wedding photo collage you already made until official photos are released. If watching half of “Miss Sloane” before falling asleep on a transatlantic flight taught us anything, it is that you do not, under any circumstances, mess with Jessica Chastain.

Don’t Believe These Fake News Stories About The Ariana Grande Concert Attack

Fake news swept across the internet in the aftermath of a deadly explosion at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, on Monday night.

An attacker killed 22 people and injured dozens more, police say. Many used social media to offer and appeal for help, others used it as an opportunity to troll and put out false information.

Reports that a gunman was on the loose at a nearby hospital, that Grande had been injured in the blast and that she had immediately retired from music all circulated within hours of the explosion which British police are treating as a terrorist incident.

Here’s a round up of the fake news stories to watch out for so far:

Parents, Please Don’t Assume Your Kids Are Invited To The Wedding

The rules of wedding etiquette are constantly changing, making it difficult for modern brides, grooms and guests to find up-to-date and correct information. That’s why we launched #MannersMondays, a series in which we ask our followers on Facebook to submit their most burning etiquette-related questions. Then, with the help of our team of etiquette experts, we get you the right answers to your biggest Big Day dilemmas. Check out this week’s question below!

“What do I do about parents RSVPing with their children when it was specifically stated that only the parents are invited?” ― Travis 

Amber HarrisonWedding Papers Divas‘ resident etiquette expert — is here to help us answer this week’s question. Here’s what she had to say:

Unfortunately this is a situation that happens too often. As a refresher, the best way to clearly communicate which family members are invited is by listing each of their names on the invitation envelope. The omission of a child’s name means that it is an adult-only affair.

There are plenty of times when this subtle message goes unrecognized. If this happens to you, the best course of action is a phone call, and the sooner the better. While it might be uncomfortable for you, don’t put this one off. The longer you wait, the harder it will be for the parents to accept – and to make arrangements for childcare! Call these guests and explain candidly that the invitation was just meant for them. Once you’ve made a decision about kids at your wedding, stick with it. Exceptions will only cause questions and hurt feelings from other guests.

Jimmy Kimmel Shows Trumpcare Supporters Don’t Know A Lot About Trumpcare

It’s a good thing these people are into Trumpcare. They’re gonna need it after Jimmy Kimmel left them burned.

Health care has been a hot topic on Kimmel’s show recently, and it was a focus again with the House of Representatives passing the American Health Care Act, which many have been calling Trumpcare for short.

To address this, Kimmel sent his crew out to find people who are Trump supporters. After finding these people, the crew made up a bunch of awful-sounding provisions in Trumpcare to see what supporters would say.

Unsurprisingly, they’re into it. From veterinarians performing surgeries on people to Uber drivers taking people to hospitals, they’re all for it. 

All we gotta say is if an Uber driver is taking us to the hospital, they better have a 5-star rating.

Women In The U.S. Don’t Live In A Dystopian Hellscape. Yet.

You’d have to be fairly clueless about the current political moment not to feel a shiver of recognition watching “The Handmaid’s Tale,” the new dystopian drama on Hulu.

Based on Margaret Atwood’s bestselling novel, the show debuted Wednesday after weeks of politically fueled anticipation. The timing is apt. The action takes place in Gilead, a fictional future America that has been taken over by a fundamentalist group of men who systematically strip away women’s rights.

That description might remind viewers of President Donald Trump’s first Monday in office when, surrounded by other men, he signed off on the global gag rule ― an anti-abortion order that restricts women’s reproductive rights around the world. Or, perhaps it also brings to mind Vice President Mike Pence, who chooses not to socialize alone with women who are not his wife.

Even Trump fanatics saw the connection, calling the show anti-Trump propaganda.

But there’s plenty of reason to believe American women are not headed toward the extreme fate faced by their fictional counterparts, whose highest purpose is to serve their husbands and bear children ― and if they can’t do the latter, so-called handmaids are forced to serve as surrogates.

That’s not us. The resistance in the U.S. is very much alive and well. And in the first 100 days of the Trump administration, it’s been remarkably effective. Indeed, just last week ― under pressure from activists energized by the election ― Fox News was forced to oust longtime star news host Bill O’Reilly, who was under fire for sexually harassing women.

Other executives at the network seem to be headed for the chopping block, as well. It’s a sign that even at one of the most conservative, pro-Trump companies in the country, women are finally being heard.

Paradoxically, O’Reilly’s ouster seemed to be made possible by Trump’s election. Putting a man in office who’d been accused of sexual assault by more than a dozen women didn’t scare anyone into silence ― it sparked a massive wave of outrage, energy and activism.

So much so that Trump’s first nominee for labor secretary, Andy Puzder, was forced to withdraw his name from consideration after decades-old domestic violence allegations resurfaced.

The day after the inauguration, millions of women took to the streets in dozens of major cities around the world wearing pink pussy hats and decrying the patriarchy. The marches were largely peaceful.

There’s more: The first shot at Obamacare repeal ― which would have left so many women without health care ― didn’t work. His anti-immigration orders have been stopped by the courts, with the help of a huge number of female immigration lawyers, as New York magazine noted.

Emily’s List, the nonprofit progressive group that helps women run for office, says it has seen an “unprecedented” level in interest since November.

What is happening now in the United States is actually real progress for women. 

It’s easy to forget that up until the 1990s, it was still legal for a husband to rape his wife. Until the 1970s, a woman accusing someone of raping her wasn’t considered a reliable witness in court (a situation eerily recalled in a terrible courtroom scene in a later episode of the Hulu show). And we haven’t even noted how women’s rights are curtailed around the world. 

Of course, there’s no doubt that putting a misogynist in the Oval Office is an enormous setback. There’s not a single woman in Trump’s inner circle, aside from his daughter, Ivanka Trump, and a spokeswoman, Kellyanne Conway, who’s been recently silenced. Only 23 percent of his White House staff is female.

But he’s hardly alone. There are only 21 women who run Fortune 500 companies out of 500. Congress is 81 percent male

Despite progress, women in the U.S. still have a frighteningly long way to go. 

The overwhelming majority of married women in this country still take their husband’s names, some without questioning why. And only recently, a Republican state representative from Oklahoma referred to women as “hosts” for fetuses.

More troubling? A majority of white women voters went for Trump, an echo of “Handmaid’s Tale,” too. In the book, elite white women ― the wives of the new political leaders ― seem to be true believers in the new world. Internalized sexism is a modern-day plague.

“The Handmaid’s Tale” came out in 1985, a perfect comment for those times, when Reagan-era conservatives were working feverishly to restore “traditional” values, i.e., restricting women’s reproductive rights, demonizing single mothers (particularly ones of color) and generally making it harder for women to choose to work outside the home. The Hulu show got the green light before Trump’s candidacy turned real.

Atwood, for her part, based the book on real historical examples.

“One of my rules was that I would not put any events into the book that had not already happened in what James Joyce called the nightmare of history,” Atwood explained in the New York Times this year. She explains that she’s grounded the book and its setting in 17th century puritanical American values (remember those witch trials).

One of Atwood’s favorite signs at the Toronto women’s march read “I can’t believe I’m still holding this fucking sign,” the 77-year-old author told The New Yorker.

When asked whether her book is a prediction for our future, Atwood offers hope and a warning.

“No, it isn’t a prediction, because predicting the future isn’t really possible: There are too many variables and unforeseen possibilities,” she writes.  “Let’s say it’s an antiprediction: If this future can be described in detail, maybe it won’t happen. But such wishful thinking cannot be depended on either.”

Progress does not happen in a straight line. Setbacks are inevitable. What’s critical is what comes next.

John Oliver Warns France: ‘Don’t ‘F**k Up’ And Elect A French Trump

John Oliver wants Americans to care about next week’s election in France because the fate of Europe may hang in the balance.

“That’s right,” Oliver said on Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight.” “The fate of Europe rests in the hands of a country that looks at snails and says, ‘I have got to get you in my mouth.’”

Oliver profiled several of the candidates, including Marine Le Pen, head of the right-wing National Front and a candidate some have compared to President Donald Trump

“She is the main reason you should be invested in this election,” Oliver told his U.S. audience. 

Like Trump, Le Pen is running on an anti-immigration platform. Oliver showed a clip of her comparing immigrants to people who move into your home, remove the wallpaper, “steal your wallet and brutalize your wife.”

“Hold on,” Oliver said. “Brutalizing your wife and stealing your wallet, again, that’s just boilerplate racism. But ‘people are coming to take my wallpaper’ is something a crazy person says. No one wants your wallpaper, you catastrophically weird person.” 

Oliver also compared Le Pen to Trump:  

“A potentially destabilizing populist campaigning on anti-immigrant rhetoric who rages against the elites despite having a powerful father and inherited wealth even as all the experts reassure us that there is no way this could possibly happen.”

Oliver then made a special appeal to the people of France.

Check it out above.
