What happens in Vegas…ends up on MTV.

In PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek at Thursday’s episode of Jersey Shore Family Vacation, Angelina Pivarnick and Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio get a little too close for comfort in the club.

“I mean, listen, I think Pauly is a great guy,” says Angelina, 32. “I think he’s cute, he’s tan, he’s got muscles, he’s got tattoos. You know what, if I was a single girl, I probably would bang Pauly.”

But when Pauly, 38, hoists her up and twirls her around, the rest of the roomies start to think the flirtation may be going too far.

“She’s cheating!” shrieks Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 30. “She’s going to lose her fiancé right now.” (Angelina got engaged to her boyfriend Chris Larangeira in January.)

“I’m sorry, but when you get engaged, you really don’t dance with a guy like that,” adds Snooki. “I definitely think Angelina loves her fiancé — but she doesn’t know when she crosses the line.”

But behind-the-scenes, it looks like all is well between Angelina and her hubby-to-be.

“This is my third engagement. Third time’s a charm!” she told PEOPLE in May. “I did not think I was going to get engaged again after my last engagement. It was toxic and it was terrible. But last summer, I went out to some big pool party in a backyard. I had known Chris for 14 years and he says the reason he never hit on me was because I always had a boyfriend. We both worked in the mall when we were younger, and he says he used to see me walk past with a different boyfriend every week.”

“But he asked me to come to this pool party and I went,” she continued. “We started hanging out from there and we’ve been together ever since!”

Dierks Bentley’s Dishes on Upcoming Seven Peaks Music Festival: ‘If Nobody Else Comes I’m Going to Have Fun’

For Dierks Bentley, all the magic is in the small details. So when planning his upcoming Seven Peaks music festival, he wanted authenticity in every component.

“If nobody else comes, I’m going to have fun,” Bentley tells PEOPLE. “That’s the goal — just me having fun and doing something really personal that has meaning for me.”

That’s why the “Burning Man” singer decided to return to Colorado — where he recorded his last studio album The Mountain — and host a music festival in the middle of the Rockies. “Selfishly, I set it there just because it gives me another excuse to go back to one of my favorite states in the country,” he admits.

However, in planning the inaugural festival, Bentley was everything but selfish. His fans were the priority when he was considering a campground that could fit his fans’ campers and cars (“some of these fans are going to drive the biggest vehicle they can find”), the stage design, and the musical lineup, which includes a kickoff ’90s night featuring headliner Clint Black and a special performance from Bentley’s cover band Hot Country Knights.

“When you’re making a festival that has your name on it you definitely want to include all those elements that make it your own, so having a ’90s night is right up my alley—very me, very my band,” Bentley says. “It’s wild what’s going on with that genre of music. We’ll throw a few of those songs into our set and you’ve got kids — 16, 17 year-olds — that are singing along to these songs that were made before they were born. There’s definitely a resurgence in that area of country music and we’re really excited to be the only festival that has a designated night for that genre.”

Alongside ’90s night on Friday, Aug. 31, Miranda Lambert‘s scheduled headlining performance on Saturday with Brothers Osborne among the openers, and Bentley’s closeout show on Sunday night, he also wanted to give fans multiple stages where they could enjoy music. The beach stage (complete with a lifeguard chair, sand and a lake in the middle of the campground) will be manned by a DJ and references the summertime vibes that go hand-in-hand with country music. The Whiskey Row stage, named after his franchise bar and restaurant, will feature upcoming artists and bluegrass musicians, which Bentley exclusively tells PEOPLE is the “lifeblood of the genre.”

That stage will feature acts Abby Anderson, Boy Named Banjo, Brown & Gray, Cody Canada, Dillon Carmichael, Travis Denning, Walker McGuire, Mipso and Rapidgrass.

Bentley was so invested in the fan experience of the festival he wanted to make sure there was easy access to sunblock, water and ice, and even went so far as to make sure there were more female port-a-potties than men’s because he “didn’t want to see girls waiting in line.”

“When you make a record your attention to detail isn’t so much for the fans sometimes as it’s more for you, just so you can sleep at night knowing that you gave it all you had,” Bentley says. “Whether that’s the type of fonts you’re using on your credits, the way you say thank you, how you list your name as a songwriter on a song. I list my name last—just these little details matter to me. It’s the same with this festival.”

Even though choosing a venue in Buena Vista, Colorado, held a personal tie, Bentley admits he also made the decision with the fans in mind because there are so many activities people can enjoy during the day, including biking, hiking and rafting.

“If I had to describe my best day it would be being outside,” Bentley says. “I’m curious to see how I’m going to hold up because I’m planning on doing all the stuff during the day and then jumping up on a lot of the stages, including the Whiskey Row stage. I also wanna jam and hang out with the campers at the campground and try to get some sort of festival jam session tradition started.”

But Bentley is no stranger to making the most of his life on the road. In late July, he went mountain climbing in Wyoming the same day he had a show in Boise, Idaho, and then flew to Palm Springs, California after his performance.

“It’s going to be an adventure for me on many levels — a marathon of sorts — but you know, I am not afraid to pack it all in,” Bentley tells PEOPLE.

As for what to bring to Seven Peaks over Labor Day weekend? All Bentley suggests is “positive vibes and an attitude where you’re open to having a lot of fun. Oh, and beer and ice are essential items.”

“This isn’t about making money,” Bentley says. “This is about trying to create a really genuine, authentic, awesome experience for the fans.”

Tickets for the Seven Peaks music festival are available here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Meghan Markle Is Going on Her First Solo Outing with the Queen!

Queen Elizabeth is taking Meghan Markle on a road trip!

On June 14, the newly minted Duchess of Sussex will carry out her first official royal outing with the monarch. Meghan, who is currently thought to be on her honeymoon with Prince Harry, will accompany the Queen on a visit to Chester, which is about 165 miles northwest of London.

The Queen, 92, is taking her new granddaughter-in-law to officially unveil a new bridge in Widnes, Cheshire, and open the Storyhouse Theatre before the royal pair sit down for lunch at Chester’s Town Hall.

While Meghan toured the U.K. alongside Harry in the run up to their May 19 wedding, this will be the first time she has joined the Queen on her own.

The royal engagement, which includes several stops in the area throughout the day, is often called an “away day” for the royals. It proves that Meghan, who has made no secret of her desire to “hit the ground running” after the royal wedding, is ready to kick off her public engagements — both alongside members of the royal family and on her own.

PEOPLE’s new commemorative edition The Royal Wedding of Meghan & Harry, a keepsake album with expanded coverage, is on sale now.

In March, Meghan joined Harry and other senior members of the royal family, including the Queen, for a church service celebrating Commonwealth Day at Westminster Abbey. And in December, Meghan debuted the perfect curtsy when she greeted Queen Elizabeth during Christmas Day church services.

FASHION HISTORY: Historic Royal Palaces, the charity that manages Kensington Palace, has been working toward adding new, never-before-seen garments for the reopening of the popular “Diana:Her Fashion Story” exhibition, later this month.
The exhibition charts the sartorial history of Princess Diana and highlights important moments in her life through her clothing.
Some of the outfits going on display include the Armani chinos and white shirt she wore to visit the landmine fields in Angola with the International Red Cross in 1997 and a violet body-hugging gown created by Gianni Versace, a dear friend of Diana’s, for a fund-raising dinner at the Museum of Natural History in Chicago.
The pink David Sassoon dress Princess Diana wore en route to her honeymoon with Prince Charles will also be exhibited, alongside pieces by Catherine Walker, Caroline Charles and Victor Edelstein, a leading London couturier in the Eighties.
Princess Diana was also known for championing local designer names during State visits, as illustrated by a cobalt blue pleated gown by the London-based Japanese-born designer, Yuki, worn to a State Dinner with Emperor Hirohito in Tokyo.

Star Wars: Gwendoline Christie on Going ‘Deeper’ with Captain Phasma in The Last Jedi

Captain Phasma may finally get to show why she’s the shiniest of Stormtroopers in The Last Jedi.

The character is back with a vengeance in Episode VIII and literally ready to fight. Phasma’s signature armor “was redesigned and made for movement,” says Gwendoline Christie, the 6-foot-3 Game of Thrones knight who has a gift for playing towering fighters. “It has been completely made-to-measure for me, and every part of my body, to make it as flexible as possible.”

Watch our full Star Wars: The Last Jedi special, streaming now on PeopleTV! Download the PeopleTV app on your favorite device or go to

That change is already clear in The Last Jedi scenes of Phasma’s rematch with her nemesis Finn (John Boyega), who forced her to shut down the shields to Starkiller Base near the end of The Force Awakens. Phasma moves fast and fierce.

But this time, Christie hints that the audience will see more of what’s under all that chrome in a “deeper” side of Phasma (could the character simply be a misunderstood phantom menace?).

“The dark side has very little humanity and empathy, so I’m looking forward to seeing the human ,” she says.

Will we see the actual human in Phasma, with Christie unmasked on screen? That’s difficult to see since always in motion the future is.

But for more clues to Episode VIII, pick up PEOPLE’s new special issue Star Wars: The Ultimate Guide to The Last Jedi (on newsstands now) and watch the exclusive PeopleTV special.

Texas Prosecutor Fired After Allegedly Berating Uber Driver: ‘Who Are They Going to Believe?’

Dallas County officials have fired a prosecutor after she allegedly berated an Uber driver and accused him of kidnapping her during a Friday ride that was captured on audio.

Jody Warner, 32, allegedly insulted and harassed 26-year-old Shaun Platt as he attempted to drive her home from a bar late that night.

“She actually hit me,” Platt recalled during an interview with ABC News. “It was not how I expected my night to go.”

Platt said Warner began yelling at friends out the window after he picked Warner up at Capitol Pub, the Dallas Morning News reports. He said she became upset when he tried to initiate small talk and grew angrier after she asked him to change directions.

The driver recorded the incident, and in the footage, a woman’s voice is heard calling plat “stupid,” “an idiot” and “a legitimate retard.”

“She kept saying she was the assistant D.A. Said, ‘Who are they gonna believe? You or me?’ ” Platt told ABC. “I said, ‘You know what? You’re kinda right.’ So I took out my phone and I recorded it.”

Platt recounted his story to the Dallas publication, noting that Warner allegedly threatened him by saying he was “Never going to work again,” and “Who are they going to believe? I’m a district attorney.”

In audio of the incident, the woman’s voice was heard saying, “I think this might be kidnapping right now, actually.” However, Platt is heard telling her she is free to leave and even asks her to leave the car.

Platt said he eventually called the police and an officer took Warner away. Dallas police did not immediately respond to a request for comment from PEOPLE.

Detective Who Berated Uber Driver Has Been Transferred

In a statement to ABC, Warner denied hitting Platt, but expressed regret over the incident.

“I cringe whenever I hear or think about the things that I said that night,” she said. “The audio doesn’t tell you that I was in a situation that made me feel very uncomfortable.”

On Monday, District Attorney Faith Johnson revealed the firing in a statement, announcing that a “thorough investigation” had been conducted.

“Although criminal charges have not been filed, behavior is contrary to this office’s core principle of integrity, and it will not be tolerated,” Johnson said.

Platt told ABC that he forgives Warner and wants the public to leave her alone.

“I’m sorry that it cost her her job. That was not my intent,” he said. “But you don’t treat people that way.”

Exclusive: Indian Designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee Is Going Global

HONG KONG — Much like the Indian weddings he often designs for, an outfit by Sabyasachi Mukherjee is a mélange of colors, intricate patterns and delight. Over the course of 16 years since he started his namesake couture label, the Kolkata native has become feted not just for his design sensibilities, but also for utilizing near forgotten arts-and-crafts traditions from around India.
On Nov. 2, Lane Crawford department store launched an exclusive collection of 29 ready-to-wear pieces from Mukherjee, a chance to get his aesthetic but in a more pared-down silhouette, accompanied by a display of 39 of his couture pieces. It is the first proper foray into East Asia for the designer, who is starting to make more noise globally.
Last month, he debuted a spikes-meets-sari collaboration of men’s and women’s shoes designed together with his friend Christian Louboutin. This most recent collaboration with Lane Crawford, however, was inspired by a visit to China Club, the members-only social establishment set up by the late David Tang.
“This is ready-to-wear with a sense of couture, all the finishings and labor-intensive [work] that couture requires, but in much simpler silhouettes,” Mukherjee told WWD, while visiting Hong Kong.

Leah Remini Still Struggles with Guilt for Going to Therapy — Because She Says Scientology Opposes It

Four years after abruptly leaving the controversial church of Scientology, Leah Remini says she’s still adjusting.

“You rebuild slowly. It doesn’t happen overnight,” the actress, 47, says in the new issue of PEOPLE. “It’s a learning process; it’s changing the way you think.”

Indeed, Remini was in the church for more than 30 years before she walked away in 2013 with husband Angelo Pagán, 59, daughter Sofia, 13, and mother Vicki. And her post-Scientology life has been challenging.

The star has been seeing a therapist now for two years, which she says is difficult because of how her former church views psychiatry.

“I have that guilty conscience,” Remini says. “If I make the most minor transgression” of a Scientology rule, like being rude or losing her temper, “I call my therapist and go, ‘I should be punished for this; I need you to reprimand me.’ She’s like, ‘No, that’s not what therapy is.’ ”

“We really have no debate with a psychologist. We do have issues with psychiatrists who subject patients, especially children, to dangerous procedures and drugs,” a Scientology spokesperson wrote in a statement to PEOPLE.

Last year, Remini launched the Emmy-nominated A&E docu-series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. Now in its second season, the show follows Remini as she shares fellow ex-Scientologists’ stories, including allegations of abuse within the church.

“It is Remini who is the attacker,” the Scientology spokesperson wrote. “Her whole anti-Scientology shtick was scripted and choreographed by her, casting herself in her drama as the ‘victim’ so she could cash in on her false narrative while savaging her friends and those who helped her most of her life.” (The Church’s full response is at

For more on Leah Remini and her battle against Scientology, pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

In addition to the A&E show, Remini will return to comedy this fall, reuniting with her King of Queens costar Kevin James in Kevin Can Wait on CBS Sept. 25. While she’s filming the show in her native New York City, her husband and daughter will stay in L.A. but make frequent visits to the east coast.

“If I didn’t have my family,” says Remini, “I don’t know what I would do.”

Blac Chyna on Trying to Keep Up with the Kardashians — & Why She Moved Out: ‘I Wasn’t Going to Be Disrespected’


Though they dated for more than a year and were engaged and welcomed a child together, Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian did not spend much of their relationship living under the same roof.

“We lived together for two months in the beginning, but he stressed me out every day,” Chyna tells PEOPLE of Kardashian, 30, in the current issue of PEOPLE. “And I said, ‘One thing you won’t do is stress me out with this baby in my belly.’ “

Sitting in the living room of her six-bedroom Los Angeles home, the model and Lashed Cosmetics entrepreneur opens up about her relationship with Kardashian and a period during which she moved in with him while he was living with his half-sister Kylie Jenner, who famously dated Tyga, the father of Chyna’s 4-year-old son King Cairo.

For more from Chyna — including a look at baby Dream’s first official photo shoot – pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

“About a month after Dream was born, I moved in with Rob at Kylie’s house for about a week. I put my pride aside — and I’m very prideful. I was like, ‘You know what? I actually want to be with this person. So guess what, Chyna, you need to go live in this lady’s house,’ which is his sister,” says Chyna. ” ‘There’s no bad blood or whatever, so be a family and figure it out.’ I moved in and one week later was like, ‘You know what? I don’t deserve this. I’m out. I’m not going to be disrespected.’ ”

Watch People Features: Blac Chyna, available now, on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to, or download the PEN app on your favorite mobile or connected TV device.

Chyna and Kardashian remained in each other’s lives after their split in December 2016 but after Kardashian took to Instagram and Twitter on July 5 to post nude photos of her and accuse her of cheating and using drugs, Chyna was granted a restraining order on July 10 and now says she will only be “co-parenting” with him in the future.

“I’m glad I’m relieved of , but damn, why did I have to get relief in this way?” she says. Though through it all, she thinks she’s found a silver lining: “I feel like God does certain things — not to hurt you, but to show you your true strength,” she says. “I feel like, if I can come out of this, I can come out of anything.”

Ryan Phillippe Shares Instagram Photo from Hospital Bed After Leg Injury: ‘I’m Going to Be Okay’

Ryan Phillippe is on the road to recovery.

The 42-year-old shared an Instagram photo on Monday, showing himself looking bruised in a hospital bed with his right leg wrapped in bandages.

“I’m going to be ok & i appreciate your concern –🖤me,” he wrote alongside the photo.

It is unclear what caused the injury, but Phillippe did his best to assure fans that he is all right, giving a thumbs-up in the photo.

He opened up about the hospital visit a bit more in posts to his Insta Story, sharing a shot of his damaged leg as he enjoyed a bowl of Jello.

“Not lit,” he wrote on the picture. He soon shared a photo of himself with his head in his right hand, writing, “not where/how i wanna be.”

As fans flooded the star’s Instagram with well wishes, Phillippe took to Twitter with a cryptic post.

“This sucks,” he tweeted.

The injury comes at a busy time for the actor. His new horror flick, Wish Upon, hit theaters last week and season 2 of USA‘s Shooter is set to premiere on Tuesday.

Alec Baldwin Opens Up About Suffering From Lyme Disease and Thinking He Was Going to Die

Alec Baldwin went from singing “Hallelujah” on the season finale of Saturday Night Live to jetting to balmy California to talk for the first time since a 2011 casual comment to the New York Times about having Lyme disease.

“They had me hiding in the bushes over there at a Lyme disease benefit,” Baldwin said as he went on the stage for the Bay Area Lyme Foundation ( LymeAid benefit for research at a private home in the woodsy enclave of Portola Valley, Ca outside Palo Alto on Sunday. “I have ticks all over me. I’m joking.”

Baldwin has been reluctant to talk about the disease, and Bay Area Lyme Foundation Executive Director Linda Giampa said that she has been trying for years to get him to come to their event. He finally agreed to do it last year, but then the appearance was almost derailed by Baldwin’s decision to do the SNL finale.

“We had already sold out the event for 350 people on that night when I was told. I asked if he would do it the next night and he graciously agreed,” Giampa said. “I think he just felt the time was right to talk about it.”

Baldwin said that he believed he had chronic Lyme disease even before he was diagnosed with it. He was bitten about 17 years ago, and got a shot. Then he was bitten again a few years later.

“I got the classic Lyme disease (symptoms) for each successive summer, for five years, every August, like this black lung, flu-like symptoms, sweating to death in my bed,” Baldwin said. “The first round (was the worst), and then it diminished, at least that’s how I perceived it.”

“The first time was the worst of all,” he recalled. “And I really thought this is it, I’m not going to live. I was alone, I wasn’t married at the time, I was divorced from my first wife. I was lying in bed saying, ‘I’m going to die of Lyme disease,’ in my bed and ‘I hope someone finds me and I’m not here for too long.’ ”

Baldwin went on to say that now he and his wife Hilaria constantly check their children for signs of tick bites.

“I want my kids to grow up riding horses and bikes and enjoying themselves every day and not have to spend every day with us going over them with a magnifying glass to make sure they don’t have any ticks on their body or their dogs, but that is part of the lifestyle of where I live,” he said.

He then lightened things up with his impersonation of President Trump and a joke about New York being a Red State. After an audience groan, he shot back, “I have Lyme disease. A little sympathy here.”

The benefit dinner and concert raised more than $ 8 Million, of which 100% will go directly to fund research for Lyme disease.

Here’s A Toad Wearing A Top Hat, Because What Else Do You Have Going On?

Chris Newsome, a 43-year-old from Alabama, knows how to make an amphibian feel fancy.

This past summer, a toad took up residence in Newsome’s flowerbed and would visit his porch every night.

Not only did Newsome decide to give his guest a proper name — Mr. Toad — he also decided to start making hats for the little critter in the hopes of making another small fry happy.

“I made hats to cheer up a friend’s son after his pet toad died,” Newsome told The Huffington Post. “He asked if my porch toad was still around, so I put some pictures of the toad with hats on Facebook to make him laugh.”

Newsome fashioned the hats out of foam paper, which he said seemed like “toad-friendly material.”

They’re also pretty small — perfect for a toad, but quite silly-looking on Newsome’s dog, Daisy, who is wearing the hat below for scale:

Newsome also told HuffPost that it seemed Mr. Toad wasn’t bothered by modeling the hats, either.

“Even after many hats and pictures, he still returned,” Newsome said. “Either he liked the hats or he couldn’t be fazed.”

Recently, Newsome decided to post the pictures of Mr. Toad working it in his fab hats on Reddit and the pictures soon went viral, receiving more than 1.1 million views.

“Hopefully, it or another toad will visit once the weather warms up,” Newsome said.

Here’s hopping that happens!

Why Men Hate Going to Church

Why Men Hate Going to Church

Reveals why men are the world’s largest unreached people group and what to do about it. It’s Sunday morning. Where are all the men? Golfing? Playing softball? Watching the tube? Mowing the lawn? Sleeping? One place you won”t find them is in church. Less than 40 percent of adults in most churches are men, and 20 to 25 percent of married churchgoing women attend without their husbands. And why are the men who do go to church so bored? Why won”t they let God change their hearts? David Murrow’s groundbreaking book has been completely revised and updated, with eye-opening research and a persuasive grasp on the facts, to explain the problem and offer hope and encouragement to women, pastors, and men. Why Men Hate Going to Church does not call men back to the church-it calls the church back to men.

Stephen Colbert Rips Trump For Finally Going ‘Too Far’ Over Meryl Streep

Who knew you could fit so many offensive things into just 140 characters? Time and time again, it seems to be the president-elect’s greatest strength, but in the eyes of Stephen Colbert, he’s finally gone “too far.”

In response to Meryl Streep’s speech at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards, in which she called out Donald Trump for making fun of a disabled reporter, the president-elect did the unthinkable: He called Streep “over-rated.”

Well, that didn’t sit right with Stephen Colbert.

“Meryl Streep, overrated? Have you seen ‘Sophie’s Choice’? Have you seen ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman’? Have you seen that one with the dead people that she’s even funny in that one?” said Colbert.

The “Late Show” host continued, “Look, Mr. Trump, you can refuse to release your taxes, you can call to ban an entire religion, you can play footsie with a dictator, but calling Meryl Streep ‘overrated’? No.”

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.

There Was Going to Be a Halo Mega Bloks Game

Back in 2013, now-defunct video game developer N-Space was working on a Mega Bloks game set in the Halo universe.

According to a recent video from PtoPOnline (thanks Polygon), the game, codenamed “Haggar” would’ve been a third-person action game for the Xbox 360 along the same lines as the popular LEGO games.

Footage from a leaked build of “Haggar” shows lengthy levels in which you’re fighting enemies using familiar weapons, building structures, driving in vehicle sections, and solving simple platforming puzzles. A co-op mode was also in development, along with “Besiege Mode,” where players would build up their base to defend it from waves on enemies.

“I’m going to eat!” she told reporters at the 18th annual InStyle and Warner Bros. Pictures Golden Globe After-Party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. “I’m going to eat some meat.”

She also talked about her supportive family and friends, particularly Tennon and their 6-year-old daughter Genesis.

“It’s having my husband, and people who love me, and people who have my back, and people who celebrate me, behind me,” she said of the best part of the night.

As for her daughter watching the win from home?

“I’m sure she’s screaming,” she said.

Davis beat out Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Nicole Kidman (Lion), Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures) and Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea). 

During her acceptance speech, the actress said, “This is my fifth nomination. I took all the pictures, went to the luncheon. But it’s right on time.”

After receiving some laughs, she delivered a heartfelt message to her costar, Washington.

“You know I’m a friend and a fan. Thank you for being an extraordinary leader, great actor, great director,” Davis said. “Thank you for saying ‘trust me’ and ‘remember the love.’ ”

In addition to her win, Davis provided a tribute to her former costar, friend and idol Meryl Streep, who took home the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

“That’s the first thing you notice about her: She tilts her head back with that sly suspicious smile,” she said of Streep. “And you think, ‘Do I have something in my teeth? Or does she want to kick my ass?’ Which is not going to happen.”

5 Powerful Questions to Ask When Things Seem to be Going Wrong

When things seem to be going wrong and you’re stuck in a pit of fear, start getting curious and ask yourself some of these questions:

1. What opportunity is this giving me for growth, healing, evolution, or learning?
2. What would happen If I didn’t label this as bad?
3. What meaning am I adding to what’s happening?
4. Am I letting this situation define me?
5. What action is this situation asking me to take?

Using awareness to respond instead of react to the situations of your life creates the magic, change, shift or transformation you desire. Keeping yourself awake inside a mindset of curiosity, positivity and possibility will guide you. The five questions above can be used when you feel stuck or paralyzed about something that’s happening and you want a fresh perspective.

If something happens to you and the reaction in your mind is negative, judgmental or otherwise gloomy, take a giant step back and observe what’s happening. There might be a better way to think, believe or act that’ll serve your desire for health and happiness. There’s a giant spectrum of intensity when it comes to life’s events and the reactions they invoke, but if you look at things with awareness and curiosity, you’ll begin to have the secret to your joy.

The questions above all create more awareness, which is how you’ll be able to choose different thoughts, beliefs or actions in response to a situation. I tend to look at most of my daily events, especially the ones that feel negative, with this kind of curiosity. When I begin to feel sad, depressed, angry, fearful or frustrated I know that’s a signal to slow down and get more curious. It’s the slowing down and feeling that’s the key here.

After speaking with my almost ex-husband on the phone the other day I found myself triggered by his words. Our conversations are strained. Attempting to sort out custody and financial issues after twenty years of marriage is enough to test both of us. But this time I found myself feeling different. Even though my little powerless girl was sitting inside, ready to run and hide when she was told she was wrong, my current day warrior goddess stood firm and used awareness as her weapon.

I asked myself, “What if you don’t react but just listen instead? What if you don’t need to be right today, but instead chose to be love?” I asked some powerful questions that instantly shifted the feeling of powerlessness to confidence. This was a game changer for me, and for our conversation, which actually ended abruptly when he hung up, frustrated with my unwillingness to back down.

A feeling fully felt is the pathway through that feeling to something better. If we shove it down, numb it up or ignore it chances are it’s just laying dormant waiting for the next opportunity to trigger us. So I’ve learned to stop and feel when certain emotions, feelings, or symptoms show up. Slowing down and feeling before I rush to react is magic when it comes to dealing with the most difficult situations.

Because most of us were taught in some way that we shouldn’t feel, or that we should tough it out or not cry – feeling has become very difficult. We associate feeling with weakness, when it’s really this very vulnerability that’s our strength. We avoid it at all costs and are embarrassed when we can’t help ourselves and the tears fall.

Reality is, when we’re brave enough to feel everything, we end up having the most direct path to healing and experiencing the relief, shift or transformation we seek. So looking at the tough situations as opportunities for brave healing is how I roll…because I know it’s what I need to do to gain a perspective everyone else is missing.

Asking big questions is one way to practice this badass kind of awareness. Rather than shouting out the first thing that comes to your mind, try getting more interested in the feeling you’re having, and asking some of these questions to help you shift your perspective. “Wow, this is making me really mad, I wonder what’s up with that?” Is one I ask myself a lot. Observing yourself and your thoughts this way really changes how you respond because you’re taking responsibility for how you feel.

When we label things as bad we put extra meaning on it that may not be the truth. Look to your situations and figure out when and where you do this the most. What are your worst triggers or patterns of unconscious behavior? When do you react without thinking? Where are you so boxed into your feelings you can’t slow down? What triggers you so badly you react without thinking?

Many times the events of our lives feel like defining moments. Something we achieved, or failed at becomes who we are. This’s a chance to step back and be curious. Is this (event, situation or result) really who I am? The answer will always be no. It’s your attachment to it that makes it feel that way. The roles we play and the successes or failures we experience become who we are and when that ceases to be the case, we fall apart. What if who we are is way more than these things? (Another powerful question).

And lastly, in many situations that seem wrong, bad or negative, we’re instantly paralyzed, feeling out of control in our lives, depressed about our lack of influence on our own situation and made to feel worthless. The problem here is we aren’t seeing the nudge for action. Many times fear takes over and we forget we can move through it just by using awareness, choosing different thoughts, calling a friend, journaling about it, meditating, breathing, or moving our butts.

Action is the magic potion for all desires and for all pain. The definition of action is what gets us confused. Sometimes action is just slowing down, clearing our minds, feeling our feelings and processing what’s happening in a more calm, grounded, centered way. That’s some powerful action. And sometimes it’s getting motivated to speak or express ourselves. Action can be about reaching out to someone and it can be about drawing or painting through your feelings.

When things are going wrong and you realize you’re stuck in a pit of desperation, sadness or fear; remember to get curious. Feel what’s there. Step outside of yourself and observe your thoughts. Start to ask questions that’ll shift your perspective, and create healthier ways to think, believe and act. Then make the most powerful move you can make; take positive, on-purpose, inspired action, and sit back and wait for the shift.

Join me in the comments and let me know what other big questions you like to use!

Sure Looks Like Grand Moff Tarkin Is Going To Be In ‘Rogue One’

At first glance, the biggest news regarding the newest “Rogue One” trailer would seem to be what sits underneath it on YouTube: an announcement that “Star Wars” fans can finally start ordering advanced tickets for the fast-approaching movie as of midnight. 

But around six seconds into the ad, which was released Sunday, we see an old man staring out at the Death Star for a moment so brief that you probably missed it. Here’s a screengrab for you to inspect. 

That blurry outline right there has “Star Wars” fans giddy, and that’s because we have good reason to believe the man standing there is Grand Moff Tarkin, the wonderfully villainous commander of the Death Star in the original “Star Wars” film, 1977’s “Episode IV ― A New Hope.”

Remember when the bad guys destroyed Princess Leia’s home planet of Alderaan? Yeah, that was Grand Moff Tarkin.

Grand Moff Tarkin ended up dying at the end of a “Episode IV” when Luke Skywalker blew up the Death Star, but that’s no issue here. “Rogue One” takes place between the events of “Episode III — Revenge of the Sith” and “Episode IV.” In fact, in “Rogue One,” the Rebels try to steal the design schematics of the Death Star, so it only makes sense that the weapon’s commander would be back.

The question then becomes, how? Peter Cushing, the man who played Grand Moff Tarkin, died in 1994. But last year, The Daily Mail reported that the Star Wars franchise might digitally recreate the late actor for the film. It seemed far-fetched at the time. But now? Much less so.

‘One Million Moms’ Is Going Totally Ballistic Over This New Zales Ad

Protesters in Standing Rock are being brutalized, white supremacists are rallying in Washington, D.C., and we’re hurtling toward a climate disaster. But don’t worry, anti-gay group One Million Moms is tackling the real problems facing our nation. Namely, a jewelry commercial showing a nice lesbian couple getting married.

The moral panic-enthusiasts released a statement this week decrying Zales for the new ad that, in a montage of couples and families, includes two women in wedding dresses happily exchanging vows.

“Zales is using public airwaves to subject families to the decay of morals and values, and belittle the sanctity of marriage in an attempt to redefine marriage,” wrote One Million Moms, apparently unaware that the actual definition of marriage already includes same-sex unions.

Their statement instructs fellow bigots to travel to Zales stores and tell managers (who surely have absolutely nothing to do with the company’s advertorial decisions) that they won’t shop there due to the commercial.

There are, of course, some legitimate reasons to criticize Zales, like promoting the huge scam of diamond engagement rings in the first place. But their inclusive commercial isn’t one of them.

Brace For Impact: The Kardashians Are Going To Cuba

America’s most popular export, the Kardashians, will travel to Cuba this week to film scenes for Season 12 of their reality show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” People reports. 

The family’s previous vacations abroad have allowed Kim, Kourtney and Khloe to have the chance to expand their cultural understanding of what it’s like to travel without a glam squad. Like that time Kim almost adopted a teenage girl in Thailand on a whim or when she lost her diamond earring in the waters of Bora Bora. 

According to Us Weekly, the family will fly out of Miami, where Kourtney is currently vacationing with her kids, Mason, Penelope and Reign. It’s unclear at this point who else besides the original trio will join.

Although the U.S. and Cuba restored full diplomatic relations under the guidance of President Barack Obama in July, travelers must still fall under 12 distinct categories, including visiting for religious activities, public performances, educational activities, athletic competitions and humanitarian projects. 

If we had to guess, the Kardashians will claim public performance as their reason for entry, because if the last decade with them has taught us anything it’s that these girls can put on a show.

Going for What I Need

Photo: I. Rimanoczy

When I was a pre-teenager I attended an “adults only” class in – German. The threshold was set at 16 and I was about 12, but they made an exception since they had no groups of my age and skill level. The downside was that the assignments were way over my head. I recall one paper we had to write that asked us to give our opinions about a statement of playwright Bertolt Brecht, “First the food, then the moral”. At my age, I was simply unable to ‘get it’. What was this all about? Many years later I learned that humans go through specific stages of moral development, and that some things that seem nonsensical at one age, become more relevant or meaningful sometime later in life.

What the German novelist was suggesting was that basic needs, like food, trump moral decisions. In other words, people can be ethical or fair only after they have met their basic needs. Not before.

This story was brought back to my mind by a news comment on how the California drought was causing farmers to dig deeper into the groundwater reservoirs. The reason is clear, as any farmer involved would explain: I simply need the water! If we have to dig a bit more, so be it. The crops are at stake. If we don’t water, they don’t grow. No crops, no business. No vegetables (or fruit, or wine, or raisins, or well fed cattle) to sell. No income. Consumers should see the point too. According to California law, anyone has the right to drill a well on their property and groundwater pumping is expected to replace 75 percent of the surface water deficit.

But something else is happening. With this increased sourcing of deeper groundwater, we are creating a vacuum in the deeper layers of the earth – and what happens when you take a brick out of a pile? The pile sinks. So the ground is sinking – at the scary rate of 2 inches a month in some places. This is two feet in a year.

Let me be share with you the candid question that I asked myself first: If my ground is higher or lower, what does it matter? Unless there is a sinkhole, of course. But those things don’t happen in California, only in Florida – (or do they?)

The answer came rapidly: sinking ground means that the very well sinks too. And so well owners just do what’s common sense – they dig deeper. “We are reaching into water levels that have been stored there for millions of years”, reflected Kim Hammond, a representative of Arthur and Orum Well Drilling Inc. in Fresno. It doesn’t stop there. Structures like roads and bridges also sink and break. This means that road safety is at stake, and insurance companies may take a look at this and, before going broke, review their premiums! Which may affect car owners and the trucking companies. In addition, the loss of roads will have an impact on transportation of goods, on the mobility of people, and on emergencies. Sinking grounds have exhumed pipelines that are supposed to be protected under the earth; moreover, the slope of the land can be altered, thus changing drainage patterns. Which can mean flooding. Which in turn can lead to the urgent necessity for additional money from tax payers. How much? No one knows. “No agency is tracking the sinking statewide, little public money has been put toward studying it and California allows agriculture businesses to keep crucial parts of their operations secret”, writes Nathan Halverson in Mother Jones.

And then, when the underground water sinks even a few inches upstream, it inhibits the flow downstream, making the picture even worse. Something I, as a Californian farmer, may not think of, since I am busy digging my well deeper because I need the water.

The big lesson that we are being taught is that thinking of what I need is never -ever- disconnected from considering what is best for us all. Until we learn this, we will be experiencing — and struggling to deal with — more and more systemic consequences.

You may call it moral or not. It’s simple connectedness, a law which we, self-centered as we are, cannot escape. The reason? That’s just how nature works.

Love Kim Kardashian West’s Style? This Budget-Friendly Line Is Going to Be Your Everything

Over the past few years something chic has been happening to Kim Kardashian West‘s style (and it may or may not have to do with the Kanye closet rehaul that left her in tears). Gone are the loud animal prints and sparkle of her 2009 closet, replaced by sleek, minimalistic outfits in neutral and monochrome palettes. And while the majority of Kim’s actual wardrobe is high-end designer, Australian label Bossa has captured the same vibe with wallet-friendly prices (and the brand ships to the U.S.!).


Last summer Kim lived in a bodysuit, showing favoritism to the American Apparel style she rocked several times. Bossa’s got an equally steamy version, plus an elongated faux suede pencil skirt that really finishes off the look (the entire outfit will run you a little over $ 150 in U.S. dollars).


Kim’s LBDs usually hit at her calf, and while some have plunging necklines, others are actually pretty covered up. She foreshadowed this fall’s favorite neckline (get ready for the turtleneck trend!) by rocking a slim-fitting frock with a mock neck. Bossa’s similar version is online here.


And while KKW loves her some pencil skirts and tight dresses, she’s also cut a stylish figure in wide-leg trousers. She covered up her creamy pair with a long vest in the same palette, but the look works in contrasting colors too. The Aussie brand created the same ensemble with a tank dress that doubles as a vest when worn open.

The coup de grace for Kim style lovers? There’s a high-gloss pink dress on offer that looks to be very much inspired by the latex looks she’s rocked.

Louis C.K. Debuts New Special Online Before Going On Hiatus

Louis C.K. announced Friday that he’ll be taking an “extended hiatus” from his much-loved series “Louie” in order to pursue other projects. But Saturday, the comic revealed a consolation prize for fans: He’s released a new special on his website called “Live at Madison Square Garden.”

Sure, it’s not all-new material. Some of the Madison Square Garden show, he explained in a letter to fans, was repeated from his last special, “Live at the Comedy Store.” BUT some of it wasn’t. So if you didn’t make it to New York City to watch any of the last three shows he did at MSG — most of you, probably — parts of it will be new to you. It costs whatever you feel like paying, anywhere from $ 1 to $ 85. 

Louis C.K. continued on in his letter to let us know he’s having a good summer, and feels pretty good about the world, even though parts of it are “a huge mess.”

“I hope you’re all relatively okay or better,” he wrote. “I hope that nobody shoots anybody today. What are the odds of that? Low. But I hope it.” Same.

Going Head-to-Head With Your Inner Enemy: Using ‘The Tools’ to Unlock Your Full Potential


Therapists Barry Michels and Phil Stutz are creators of “the Tools,” a set of practices to help you move past self-limiting behaviors and transform challenges into opportunities. Here’s how the Tools can help with that part of you–often referred to as the saboteur, the shadow, or your inner enemy–that Michels and Stutz call Part X.

Omega: You describe how people can use the Tools to do battle with Part X, also known as their inner enemy. Does there come a time in using the Tools where it feels less like a battle and more peaceful?

Phil: I have a saying that peace is an active state of mind. We’re trying to combine the sense of peace with the necessity for constant work. Peace was often defined as something languid and laid back, a state where you can fold your tent up, stop making an effort, and stop being vigilant. That’s not what peace is.

The only infinite thing about a human being is their ability to keep on struggling with no end point. If you’re willing to do that, you’ve tapped into an infinite part of yourself that can then connect to the infinite forces in the universe, and that is peace. As far as I’m concerned that’s the only peace. That’s why I say peace is an active state of mind.

Barry: I like to illustrate this with a triangle. The lower part of the triangle is an eternal battle between you and this inner saboteur. If you engage in the struggle and keep fighting it, what happens is the top of the triangle emerges and at the top of the triangle is your higher self. It’s a part of you that transcends the lower level and can view the struggle from a higher perspective and be at peace with it. These two levels happen simultaneously, the struggle and feeling integrated and completely at peace.

Omega: How can you be sure Part X hasn’t taken over the Tools and is using them for its own end, like posing as your Inner Authority?

Barry: Part X doesn’t want you to use tools at all. Its first strategy is to get you to forget them entirely. In my case, I was always amazed at how I could work all day with patients, exhorting them to use the tools, and then somehow “forget” to use them when I went home at night.

Once you come up with ways to remind yourself to use the tools, Part X still discourages you from using them. When you use them and you get a good outcome, it suggests you no longer need them. When you experience a failure or setback, it tells you they didn’t “work,” so there’s no point in using them.

If all else fails, it likes to pose as a powerful inner authority who knows you better than you know yourself. If you study it carefully, you’ll notice it uses a harsh, finger-pointing, punitive, judgmental tone. When we work with people, we try to shift that tone to one that is supportive of every effort you make — whether you succeed or fail.

Phil: If the voice inside you is telling you to quit, it’s almost definitely Part X. It’s either going to tell you that you don’t need to do it anymore, that you’ve got this solved, or you don’t have to make anymore effort because you or the situation is hopeless and helpless, so why bother.

Omega: Is it easy to learn how to use the Tools if you’re not used to being self-reflective or self-aware?

Phil: I try to focus on what someone wants to change and just bang on that over and over again. I try to give as little theory as I can and instead give them tasks that include what I like to call student study — I ask them to study themselves. I also get people to draw pictures. When I ask people to draw a picture of Part X, no one has ever said, “What the hell is that?”

Omega: What’s the biggest thing to watch out for with Part X?

Phil: There seem to be three basic rules in the universe: part of life is pain; part of life is uncertainty; and part of life is endless work. And none of these ever go away. What we see in almost everyone is the idea of a realm of illusion where you will be exonerated, or exempt from these three rules of the universe. I call this the “snapshot realm,” because we have a picture of this perfect place in our mind, but this place doesn’t exist. Part X wants you to believe that this illusory realm is real, and once it does it can pretty much have its way with you because it’s making you a false promise.

Barry: An example of the realm of illusion might be romantic relationships. Most young people go into romantic relationships expecting to walk hand-in-hand into the sunset with the music swelling. People expect this moment to last forever. But that’s Part X’s demonic way of inflating someone’s expectations to a point where they will inevitably be crushed. It’s like commercials for exercise equipment that tell you you’re going to lose weight just by buying a treadmill but don’t mention that you’re going to have to get yourself to use the treadmill. The Tools will get you to use the treadmill.

Almost Going to Jail Taught Me How to Give!

I have learned about giving through the experience of receiving. There have been a lot of people in my life that gave to me, when they didn’t have to, when there wasn’t anything in it for them.

I haven’t always known how to give in my life, I spent a lot of it, not knowing how to give love, not knowing how to give my gifts and talents not knowing I had anything to give.
I learned slowly from a few very special people in my life how to give.

My teachers come to mind. I’ve never really had a relationship with my father, he’s always seemed like a ghost, somewhere out there, but just out of my reach.

I think subconsciously I created a lot of my teachers to be men, strong healthy role models of the healthy masculine to heal the old father wound. They were all available, attentive and loving.

I needed that. It has been very healing for me.

I ran away from home as a really young teenager and moved to Hawaii. I never knew there were people out there that wanted to help me just because, just to help, when I ran away that wasn’t my experience. Everyone wanted something.

Before I found my calling God sent me an angel named Sean, I was struggling and had gotten into some trouble with the law, and I honestly didn’t know what was going to happen. Out of desperation, fear and intense emotional pain I started going anywhere spiritual!

I met Sean in a spiritual community, he took me under his wing.

Every time I went to court it was so demeaning and scary, everyone treated me like I was already guilty, but not Sean, he was an amazing loving teacher. He taught me how to sit with people, how to love them and be there for them when things got hard.

I remember telling him, I’m so scared, I don’t know if I’m going to jail! I have no idea what I could do to help another person right now!

He would say “Yeah just come with me, we’re all going to go sit and be with some people who are suffering, just talk from your heart and give them what you can in the way of love.”

I thought what’s wrong with him! Doesn’t he see I’m messed up! Doesn’t he see I’m the one that needs help!?

But I just kept showing up whenever there was an opportunity to talk with someone struggling with cancer, or a teenage girl who had been molested. I just showed up and tried to help.
It changed everything, I just couldn’t wait until Sean and our little team of helpers went out to be with another hurting soul. I suddenly felt I wasn’t an awful person, I wasn’t so lost.
It gave me a reason to live again.

When I first met Sean I was so worried about the case that I spent hours of many days crying on my bathroom floor, then Sean would call and say “Hey what are you doing, wanna sit with some hurting folks?”

I mean, I thought it couldn’t be any worse than sitting on my bathroom floor crying. That gift he gave me of being able to give love to another soul was like medicine for my spirit.

I began to feel like, Hey Ama, you might be able to really help people! And you Really love it!!!”
I started thinking less and less about my situation and more and more about the next time I could get back out there with Sean and the team!

A seed was planted in my soul.

I learned from Sean that no matter how much you are hurting inside, how dark things get, you can still give, that in fact that IS the medicine that will give you the will to live again! To bring meaning back into your life! That’s what happened to me.

I found that in life you can make mistakes and lose everything and in losing can be great winning.

I ended up taking a plea that the DA offered in my case, I was just too terrified to go to trial and gamble and maybe win but maybe lose.

I was on probation for awhile, lost all my money spending thousands of dollars defending myself and in fees.

I lost a lot of friends that couldn’t handle the intensity of my situation. But I wasn’t as focused on me and my situation anymore, I had found this new world of giving and being of service, and I couldn’t get enough!!!

I remember going to endless court hearings thinking, I can’t wait to get out of here and go sit with someone that’s hurting! It’s the only thing that saved me and kept me from the deepest despair and from giving up.

I kept going out with Sean and the team. I started to realize when I was sitting with hurting ones, I would get information about them, I had a gift, I could tell what was going to happen or what had happened to them before.

I would touch them on the hand or their head and they would start to feel better. I found that I knew how to talk with them and somehow they would be feeling better and filled with hope after we talked.

I began to find my calling as a healer.

The worst thing that I thought had ever happened to me, turned out to lead me to the best thing that ever happened… finding my gifts and my calling…. and the joy of being of service and giving!

That experience of receiving unconditional love from Sean taught me not to judge people too harshly, as you never know their story and how they got to be where they’re at.
Sean knew my situation but he chose to see something good in me, he chose to see that I had something to offer and I started to believe him!

He didn’t talk to me about giving, he made me go out and do it!

It was extraordinary! Sean taught me that the way to heal is to GIVE!

It was the most amazing thing, at my lowest point, I was asked to serve another human being and it healed MY hurting soul!

Yeah, I’ve learned a lot from my teachers. I’ve learned how to give, really give and the absolute joy that comes from giving is addictive!

Once you reach out to help another person, no matter what is going on for you in your life, you’ll never stop, and you’ll always know how to find your way back to yourself by reaching out and finding someone that needs your help. You’ll find that you’ll get hooked on that feeling of love and giving and you’ll never turn back!! I didn’t!

People Are Going Crazy for This Supermodel With Legs the Length of an Average 7-Year-Old


The world’s going crazy for Dong Lei, a model who was on Chinese reality show Supermodel and has legs that clock in at 45 inches—a.k.a. the approximate size of a seven-year-old girl. In China, the average height for a woman is 5’3″ (63 inches), meaning Lei’s legs would be over 70 percent of their total stature. In the U.S., the typical female is 65 inches.

To put those super stems in perspective, we present the below:

35 inches: The average height of a mature Great Dane, measured from shoulder to floor.
40 inches: Karlie Kloss’s legs.
53 inches: Tyrion Lanister (a.k.a. Peter Dinklage), fully standing.

NBC Told Marta Kauffman That ‘No One’s Going To Watch A Show About People In Their 20s’

Showrunner Marta Kauffman had to deal with quite a few obstacles in creating “Friends” (including, but not limited to, misogyny). One of the comments she received from NBC early on nearly nixed the now iconic setup for the cast.

“We were told by the network, ‘No one’s going to watch a show about people in their 20s,'” she said. “[They said], ‘You have to have an older person.'”

Of course, the show had nearly 25 million viewers in its first season. Though you, dear Internet, need no reminder of how beloved “Friends” was and always will be.

That concern from higher-ups was one of the reasons Kauffman almost had to bring in “Pat the Cop,” aka, as moderator Ben Blacker put it, “America’s favorite lost character.”

As the lore would have it, Pat was suggested by one executive as an older figure who would provide the characters with relationship advice.

Kauffman was vehemently against bringing on Pat or a similar figure — one of the other ideas was a “Coffee Joe” — and insisted that she could make audiences care about such a young set of characters without a more mature presence.

“We kept saying, ‘If the stories are universal enough, you don’t need it.'” She eventually met executives’ requests by bringing in Rachel Green’s parents. (Later, Monica’s and Ross’ parents were also a big presence.)

“It felt more natural,” Kauffman said. “That’s how we decided to deal with the note. And this is what I always tell writers: you’ve gotta deal with the note somehow.

R.I.P. Pat the Cop. May you live on forever in “Friends” trivia posts.

Natalie Portman Explains What She Learned Going Through ‘Dark Moments’ At Harvard

Attending Harvard University, said actress Natalie Portman, “changed the very questions I was asking.”

Portman, a 2003 graduate of Harvard, was the keynote speaker at Harvard College’s Class Day on Wednesday. Portman joked up front that she had wanted some comedy writers for her speech because at her Class Day, Will Ferrell was their hilarious speaker. She didn’t get anyone to help her craft jokes, she said, and so Portman’s speech largely focused on her explaining how she confronted her own doubts when she went to Harvard.

In high school, she was voted most likely to be a contestant on “Jeopardy,” which Portman said was “code for nerdy.” But when Portman came to Harvard, after the 1999 release of “Star Wars: Episode I” that she starred in, she was worried she’d be viewed as unworthy and only gotten in because of her fame.

“I got in only because I was famous — this is how others viewed me and how I viewed myself,” Portman admitted. Portman said she would have some “pretty dark moments” as a Harvard student.

“There were several occasions I started crying in meetings with professors, overwhelmed with what I was supposed to pull off when I could barely get out of bed in the morning,” she recounted.

class day

Bouncing between researching about underground groups for her role in “V for Vendetta” and making the stoner comedy “Your Highness,” among other films, Portman said she learned to find her own meaning and not have her success determined by box office receipts.

Portman learned as she studied for her role in “Black Swan” that “the only thing that separates you from others is your quirks, or even flaws.”

“There was a reason I was an actor,” Portman said, “because I love what I do and I saw from my peers and my mentors that was not only an acceptable reason, that was the best reason.”

Going to a Wedding? Don’t Be That Guest

‘Tis the season for attending weddings! Are you going to a wedding (or five) this summer? You too can flawlessly navigate the unspoken rules of weddings and avoid any guest gaffes with these tips from real-life brides and grooms.

Couple Conundrum: Late or Missing RSVP’s
Recent bride and groom, Emma and Adam, had large extended families and a wedding venue with a small capacity, meaning they weren’t able to include some friends on their original guest list simply because of space. When a sizeable chunk of RSVP’s failed to arrive, they assumed those guests weren’t planning to attend and decided to extend invitations to those they didn’t quite have room for originally. Unfortunately, their assumption was incorrect. More responses than they bargained for eventually rolled in and affected guest counts — which ultimately affected their budget and caused some serious stress with venue capacity.

Pro Tip: RSVP on Time
Do the couple a favor and RSVP as quickly as possible, and certainly before the requested date. The RSVP card is one of the most important planning tools the couple has, but they need your cooperation for it to be effective. Show your enthusiasm and excitement for their big day by responding promptly. Texting doesn’t count! And don’t assume you have a plus one, unless the invitation specifically says so.

Couple Conundrum: Duplicate Gifts
Last summer, brides-to-be Danielle and Stephanie spent weekend upon weekend meticulously curating their registries at various department stores, only to be gifted not one, but three of the same gift that wasn’t on their registry. After trying to return two of the three identical gifts, they discovered that the credit had been applied back to the gift-giver’s credit cards, much to their dismay…and embarrassment!

Pro Tip: Use the Registry
The registry is there for a reason. Stick with it to avoid putting the couple in a potentially awkward situation. If you can’t find the couple’s registry ask a member of the family or bridal party. There are exceptions, of course, like personal and meaningful gifts, gift cards and cash.

Couple Conundrum: Specific Dress Codes
When Becca was invited to an Indian wedding last year, she did her research on what to wear (at Indian weddings brighter is better!) and found a beautiful jewel-toned dress as opposed to something with a more neutral or conservative tone. She had an amazing time, felt beautiful and fit right in with the party. Three cheers for doing homework in advance!

Pro Tip: Do Your Homework
A wedding is not the place to flaunt your new avant-garde look! If you’re unsure of the dress code, use the season or the wedding venue as a cue. Be sure to do your research, too, in case there are any important cultural preferences you should be aware of. And if all else fails, just ask a bridesmaid! They can always give you the scoop.

Couple Conundrum: Unwanted Social Sharing
Facebook and Instagram may be great ways to share life’s special moments, but be careful. In many cultures it’s considered bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the wedding. Last fall one groom, John, unintentionally saw his bride, Juanita, before she walked down the aisle. One of Juanita’s bridesmaids had posted a photo of her getting ready on Instagram before the wedding had begun!

Pro Tip: Post with Caution While the overzealous bridesmaid certainly didn’t mean any harm, it’s a good lesson for us all. Be mindful with social media — especially at weddings — as posts can have unintended but serious consequences. Even though it’s tempting to post throughout the event, remember it’s the couple’s special day, so look for any guidelines. If you don’t see any instructions, just follow the couple’s lead!

Regardless of the situation, you can be sure that you don’t want to be that guest! You know the one. Avoid anything that makes you the center of attention. It’s never fun to have regrets the next morning. Pace yourself with the bubbly, participate in the activities, dance your heart out and have a blast celebrating. Just be sure to keep yourself in check. Soak in every moment of this special day and show your support for the newlyweds!

Why The Itsy Bitsy Bikini Trend Isn’t Going Anywhere Anytime Soon

Hawaii gets a lot of flak for being behind on trends, but when it comes to swimwear, the Aloha state is definitely ahead of the curve.

And we know something mainland beaches don’t: cheeky bikini bottoms are about to sweep the nation.

The Brazilian bikini bottom — the barely-there style of the ’80s — has been resurrected in new and more modest ways, and this time, bikini experts say, it’s here to stay.

“The [Brazilian bikini] trend is growing,” Debbie Wilson, owner and designer of Maui Girl Bikinis, told The Huffington Post. “I don’t see it losing popularity.”


You Can Thank/Blame Social Media

Wilson has been designing all types of bikinis for 30 years. When she first opened her boutique on Maui, Brazilian-cut and thong bikinis weren’t in much demand. Now, Wilson says, they make up 75 to 80 percent of her overall sales.

The resurgence has swept Hawaii over the past five years, and signs of it are just now beginning to pop up on the mainland. Victoria’s Secret, perhaps the most mainstream swimwear brand, has introduced an “Itsy” option as well as a “Cheeky” option, and San Lorenzo, the Hawaii-based boutique that specializes in the Brazilian-cut, has recently branched out with stores in Newport Beach and Malibu as well as a pop up shop in the Hamptons — the paragon of East Coast prep and propriety.

Those in the industry say the surge in popularity may be related to the rise of social media.

Sabra Krock, creative director for the swim boutique Everything But Water, told The Daily Beast that the recent “fitness craze” is to thank for the cheeky trend, “as well as the Instagram and selfie voyeurism that’s online,” she said.

“I definitely point to Instagram as a key reason for a desire to emulate celebrities,” she said.

The trend may have only recently reignited, but Mariella St. John, marketing director for San Lorenzo Bikinis, says that this style “is one that you can never go back on.”

Today’s line-up of Brazilian-cut bikinis offers more modest designs, making the style more accessible. While veterans and daredevils might still opt for super thin thongs or the showy v-line swimsuits of the late ’80s and ’90s, more modest options like cheeky boy shorts now exist.

These new designs, Wilson says, are “turning into g-strings again, but with more details, like a waistband, or shorts that still fit you in a way a [thong] would.”

Contrary to what you may think, Wilson explained, smaller bikini bottoms have a “slimming effect” on your rear end.

“Women are starting to realize that the [smaller cuts] are more flattering,” she said.

Finding Your Fit

When choosing the right cut, Emma Wo, fashion blogger at and Miss Hawaii 2015, says “it’s important to find a style that works well with your body type. Brazilian-cut bikinis can seem daunting at first,” she told HuffPost, “but if you’ve got curves, full-coverage bikinis can actually make you look wider.”

“When customers, who have never worn our bikinis, come into the store, we tell them, ‘We’re going to convert you,'” St. John said. When her customers find the right fit of a cheeky bikini and then go back to a traditional cut, they often tell her that the regular bottoms feel like a “diaper.”

For comparison, here’s a traditional cut next to a Brazilian cut on the same model at a San Lorenzo boutique:


If you’re shy about jumping in to a full Brazilian bikini, Naomi Newirth, co-designer of Acacia Swimwear, says to find somewhere in between and start there — “not full coverage and not a total Brazilian cut,” she told HuffPost, “no extra sag or fabric.”

Acacia Swimwear’s 2015 collection features cheeky bottoms that still maintain moderate coverage, like the ones featured below. Bikini model Chelsea Yamase also suggests Mikoh Bikinis, for a similar style.

If you’re still nervous about making the switch, bikini blogger Rebekah Steen of Gold Fish Kiss says, “Just give it a shot. At least once. Life’s short, try it out, and get some sun on your buns. You’ll be surprised how wearing just a little less fabric on your bum makes it look just that much better.”

Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best in-between cheeky bikinis so you can try the trend out for yourself.

All I care about is Paige now, I can’t help it. Well, also Henry. He’s is just the cutest, dumbest little brother that ever lived, and I should know because I have one. But Paige! I love that Elizabeth hates her church so much. Best quote? “Potluck, poster making, sing-a-long” is the best description of church groups I have ever heard.

And then the tension. Granny’s back. Stan is at Marthas. We are heading into a finale and the stakes are higher than ever before. Are we all having mini strokes every Wednesday? Here are some of my favorite freak outs:

I do hope they don’t kill Martha because they think she tattled. Next week is the finale and I don’t know if I’ll breathe during it all. But never fear, they’re already working on next year:

16 Shocking Allegations In Scientology Documentary ‘Going Clear’

The Church of Scientology has long been a controversial institution among both the religious community and entertainment business. But the latest documentary from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney, “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief,” explores the secrets of the organization through interviews with former high-ranking officials and former members in a way never seen before.

Based on the 2013 book of the same name by Lawrence Wright, “Going Clear” not only exposes details about Scientology but also serves as an in-depth explainer for those unfamiliar with the group. The Church has spoken out against the film (read their full statement here) as have its celebrity members. But whether you’ve studied Scientology closely or merely know it as “the religion with Tom Cruise,” watching “Going Clear” is a powerful, stunning and emotionally overwhelming experience that will likely leave you with your mouth agape. Here are the most shocking allegations put forth in “Going Clear,” which made its HBO debut on Sunday night:

1. L. Ron Hubbard’s Scientology creation story
When Scientologists reach level OT III, they are shown the “secret materials,” as director and former member Paul Haggis described them: Hubbard’s hand-written account of the creation myth. According to this, 75 million years ago a galactic dictator named Xenu froze people and dropped their bodies into volcanoes. From there, the disembodied spirits, or thetans, apparently jumped into newborns bodies. According to Hubbard, these multiple thetans crowded in our bodies are the source of our anxieties and fears.

2. Hubbard spent time in a black magic cult
Before founding Scientology, Hubbard befriended rocket and chemical engineer Jack Parsons who was a part of black magic cult Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO), which followed the teachings of Aleister Crowley. According to “Going Clear,” Hubbard became Parsons scribe and assistant on a magical operation to impregnate a goddess-like woman to create the anti-Christ.

3. Members were allegedly thrown overboard as punishment
Hubbard created Ethics, or punishments for his auditors who made mistakes during sessions. They were then pushed overboard on his ships into the water, which was “30 feet, 35 feet” below, according to Hana Whitfield, one of the original Sea Org members.

4. Hubbard told his second wife he murdered their daughter
When Sara Northup, Hubbard’s second wife, threatened to leave him unless he got psychiatric help, he reportedly kidnapped their daughter Alexis. According to written accounts from Northup, Hubbard told her he “cut [Alexis] into little pieces” and dropped her in a river. Then he would call back and tell Sara that their daughter was alive.

5. There was a Scientology “prison camp”
Former Church member Sylvia “Spanky” Taylor, who was once the liaison between the Church and John Travolta, was sent to the Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF), or what she described as the “prison camp where you’d go for re-indoctrination.” According to the film, when sent to the RPF, people would have to do hard labor for “30 hours on, 3 hours off,” eat table scraps and sleep on dirty, wet mattresses.


6. The FBI raid on the Church was the biggest in history at the time
On July 8, 1977, the FBI raided Scientology’s Los Angeles, Hollywood and Washington, D.C. locations, which at the time was the bureau’s biggest raid ever.

7. The Church stole government documents
According to the film, in the ’70s, many Scientologists were directed to get jobs in Department of Justice and IRS offices in order to steal documents against or relating to the Church.

8. The Church apparently has a blackmail folder on John Travolta
According to Wright in the film, when there were rumors of Travolta wanting to leave Scientology, the Church created a “black PR package” that has “all the damaging material” from his private auditing sessions. Travolta also reportedly refused to have his sessions video taped, but secret cameras were hidden anyway.

9. The Church investigated the IRS
One of the Church’s goals was to be recognized by the IRS as a fully tax-exempt religion, according to former senior executive of the Church Mark “Marty” Rathbun. Thousands of Scientologists reportedly filed 2,400 total lawsuits against IRS employees, and private investigators were sent to IRS conventions to obtain information. According to journalist Tony Ortega, Scientology leader David Miscavige told the IRS commissioner that the lawsuits would go away if the Church was given tax-exempt status. The Church was granted exemption in October 1993.

10. Tom Cruise and the Church allegedly wire-tapped Nicole Kidman’s phone
According to the film, the Church noticed Tom Cruise slipping away from Scientology during his marriage to Nicole Kidman. Cruise reportedly said he wanted to have Kidman’s phone wiretapped, which the Church did at his request.

11. Cruise may have had employees pimp his cars for 40 cents an hour
Sea Org members make 40 cents an hour, according to Ortega, who says, “I don’t think there’s any way Tom Cruise is not aware of that.” According to the film, they have “tricked out his cars and motorcycles” and hanger in Santa Monica, California, and installed the audiovisual equipment at his home.

12. The Church supposedly found Cruise a new girlfriend
According to Wright, Cruise was “overheard to complain that he needed a new girlfriend” when he was in Spain at the opening of a new Scientology center. The Church then found a young Scientologist, Nazanin Boniadi, and reportedly had her braces removed, bought her $ 20,000 of clothes and colored her hair “to Cruise’s liking.” She was then told she would be Cruise’ girlfriend, but the relationship soon ended. Boniadi apparently signed a non-disclosure agreement with the Church and has since become a well-known actress in “Homeland,” “Iron Man,” among other films and shows.

13. Paul Haggis left because of the the Church’s homophobic stance
Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis (“Crash,” “Casino Royale”) left Scientology in 2009 after 30 years when his two gay daughters told him how they were being treated and harassed by the Church. According to Church doctrines, the religion views homosexuality as a disease. Haggis then wrote a now-famous letter of his resignation from the Church.

14. Scientology’s book value is about $ 1.5 billion
Ortega obtained recent tax records that revealed the main three tiers of the Church (which is a non-profit organization) have a combined book value of $ 1.5 billion.

15. Sea Org members were allegedly tortured to the sounds of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”
In 2004, Miscaviage apparently ordered the top members of the Sea Org to live in what was known as The Hole in the Chuch’s secret Gold Base in California. In the film, former members say they were told to confess their crimes against the Church in order to leave The Hole. Beyond beatings and one man being ordered to “mop up the bathroom floor with his tongue,” another method of abuse was when members were forced to play musical chairs to “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Those participating were “fighting to stay” in the Church: whoever didn’t have a seat when the music stopped was expelled from the Church.

16. If members leave the Church their friends & family are forced to “disconnect”
The biggest reason to not leave the Church for many Scientologists is fear of “disconnection.” This is when all friends and family members still with the Church are told to cut ties with those who leave, or those deemed Potential Trouble Sources (PTS), or Suppressive Persons (SPs). Many former members included in the film haven’t seen or spoken to their family or friends since they left.

“Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief” airs again on Monday, March 30 at 9:00 p.m. ET on HBO.

The Loft Is So Much Better Than You Think It Is Going to Be

The Loft is a surprisingly entertaining film that keeps the audience in the dark as to its villain(s) until the very end. The fact the ending is logical and difficult to anticipate makes this movie an above average feature. There is also some solid acting from a cast not particularly known for the type of roles they are inhabiting.

The premise of the film is that five friends partner up to buy a loft where they can have complete privacy. Vincent (Karl Urban) is the man with the plan but his buddies Luke (Wentworth Miller), Marty (Eric Stonestreet) and Philip (Matthias Schoenaerts) eagerly commit to their share of payment and accept their keys. All of the men are married but this does not seem to be a problem except for Chris (James Marsden) who intends to be faithful to his wife (Rhona Mitra). His fidelity lasts until he meets Anne (Rachel Taylor) and falls completely in lust.

Now all five men are using the lift for their various trysts. Everything is going smoothly until one morning they discover a body in the bed. Since there is no sign of a break in and the alarm code has been entered they become suspicious of each other. Still all claim complete innocence, but in this film no one is who or what they claim to be.

Both Urban and Marsden have more screen time than the others so they could be considered the leads. However in this movie the supporting players get to have the meatier scenes. Stonestreet who is best known for his current role on Modern Family as Cameron, is a complete surprise here as the drunken, woman chasing Marty. Equally good is Miller, who once starred in the Fox series Prison Break. Here he is an intellectual and also a shy man.

The movie operates with a present day story interspersed with numerous flashbacks. In many movies this has proven to be an annoying way of telling a story and I generally prefer a linear approach. In this film, however, the back and forth storytelling works. Each flashback provides another peeling back of a layer of deception. There is one “aha” moment after another.

In The Loft movie the women are not the prominent players but Isabel Lucas and Taylor, who play Sarah and Anne, manage to make their presence known. Both are beautiful women and that adds to the validity of their roles.

The movie is rated R for violence, profanity and nudity.

The Loft arrived with little advance fanfare so it might not even be on your entertainment radar. If you like movies that keep you in the dark until the reveal then this is a movie you want to see. Believe me, it is so much better than you think it is going to be ,

I scored The Loft a high up 7 out of 10.

Can artists Procreate Without Going Bankrupt?

I’m a member of two different Facebook groups that have frequent postings; one of them is a group for moms, many of whom also happen to be artists. The other one is a forum for classical singers, a few of whom happen to be parents. There isn’t a lot of crossover topics between the two groups — but this week, unrelated to one another, I read a post on my classical singer group asking whether people who had kids felt that it affected their careers as singers, and another post on my mom’s page asking whether any artists that were also parents were managing to keep their artistic careers going while still staying afloat financially. Where the crossover between these two queries occurred was mostly in the comments section, where people who were artists and parents explained how they managed to keep from moving their families into cardboard boxes, and what sacrifices they had made in order to add children to their lives. Everyone said that whatever sacrifices they had made were worth it, and they wouldn’t change a thing. But almost all of the commenters with kids mentioned that either they or their spouses had moved into some sort of academia or other work in order to pay the bills and remain at least somewhat financially stable. The number of people who had moved in different directions than their original artistic intentions was almost everybody. Most people said they were content with where their choices had led them, but it lead my mom’s group to start a discussion about why it’s next to impossible to be an artist — and especially a couple in which both people are artists and self employed — and make a go of having a family.

For opera singing parents, the challenges are quite extraordinary. Because not only are there all the challenges of being a self-employed artist, whose income is sporadic and difficult to predict, and who has no health or retirement benefits from their job, but we must factor in the concern that our jobs require constant travel, which makes adding a child into the mix pretty insane. Not only do we have to arrange extra plane tickets and different accommodations than may be provided by the company for whom we are working — usually at our own expense — but we have to arrange childcare in a strange place, ahead of time, without even having a chance to meet with the candidates. So a mother must bring her child with her to a strange place, and the very next day leave them with a strange person while they go to rehearsal. Or we leave our child with someone back home for a long period of time. The fees of opera singers have notoriously dwindled in recent years, and the competition has made jobs less available and less frequent. After a singer pays a coach to help them learn their role, and lives in a strange city for several weeks without pay, they then get a lump sum for their performances, of which 10-20 percent gets paid to an agent, and another 15-30 percent should be set aside for taxes. After deducting the costs of monthly health insurance (probably at least $ 700-1000 per month for the singer and child) and any retirement that could be set aside (ha ha — we wish) that doesn’t leave the singer a lot to work with. And I’m not only talking about struggling singers, I’m talking about singers who sing in the major opera houses around the world. And if you’re adding onto that the extra expense of travel, accommodations and possibly childcare, you are left wondering why you bothered to leave your house in the first place. And while other types of artists have different challenges, almost all of them face rising expenses and dwindling profits, and share similar concerns to we opera singing parents.

Which leads me to the question; should artists even bother to procreate? Is it fair to our children that we lead such financially itinerant lifestyles? If someone wants to have a family, shouldn’t they just do the responsible thing and get a “real” job?

The problem with this line of questioning (which so many artists face from friends, family and strangers sitting next to us on airplanes and in coffee shops on a daily basis) is that it really does question whether being an artist is of value to a society at all. Because if having children is so impossible for someone who works as an artist — and I’m not even talking about a struggling “wannabe” artist, but someone who actually makes a living as one — then it suggests that it is not a career worth being compensated for, but merely an avocation for a young and untethered person who doesn’t mind living la vie boheme, using old chairs for firewood and eating sardine sandwiches.

I bring this up because there are other countries who consider these problems. There are countries who provide health care and education to all their citizens (Sweden, Denmark, Norway — most of Europe actually), who provide paid maternity leave to expecting mothers (and fathers) even if their jobs don’t (Canada), who give stipends to every family for each child they have (Germany), and who even have government sponsored excellent childcare as well as insurance for artists who are between jobs (France). Many of these countries also have state sponsored arts funding, coincidentally. So artists are paid pretty well, and don’t have to go around worrying all the time about how they are going to make ends meet. Artists are acknowledged as being participating, contributing members of society, and their worth isn’t taken for granted. Yes, the citizens of these countries also pay higher taxes — but not that much higher considering all the benefits they are offered.

So we’re back to the same question I ask so often in my blog posts — why doesn’t America value artists more and allow for them to continue to contribute without constantly worrying about financial collapse? I’m not talking about handouts — I’m talking about extensive tax breaks for childcare, and access to truly affordable health care, and community support to the organizations that create art so that they can pay artists fair wages. I’m talking about wage earning that is commensurate with education, and acknowledgement that arts organizations enrich communities both fiscally and socially.

Coming full circle back to my Facebook forums and where they intersect — parents all over this country are struggling to make ends meet because of things like childcare and healthcare. Artists all over this country are struggling because of lack of income, lack of jobs and lack of government support. In a way, artists are prepared to make excellent parents because they are used to finding creative solutions to financial hurdles, something most parents have to do many times in their child’s lives, regardless of their occupation. But this isn’t the only thing that can make artists great parents. Artistic parents can’t help but encourage artistically minded children, whether that means artists or merely arts supporters. And we desperately need more people who believe that creativity is a vital arm to our society. So we need artists to keep procreating so we can make a new generation of people who are willing to think creatively and who think of artists as necessary members of their community.

So I say to all artists; go forth and procreate. You are creative. You will figure out a way around the financial and logistical hurdles which you will encounter. And you will hopefully become part of the village so essential to other artists in your community also raising families.

And also; nothing inspires creativity quite like trying to have a conversation with a toddler.
