How Manuel Mendez Came to Style One of the Most Famous Kids in the World

Manuel Mendez is known to plan as many as 90 outfits at a time, all of which are for one very famous seven-year-old. Much like her contemporary North West, Blue Ivy, the eldest daughter of Beyoncé and Jay Z, has made headlines in recent years for establishing herself as a young fashionista. Last year she wore a custom Valery Kovalska tuxedo pantsuit to the Grammy Awards and a Billie Blush dress in Jay Z’s “Family Feud” video. In July, she appeared in the video for “Spirit” from Disney’s “The Lion King” remake, in which she wore a custom purple tulle dress by Microwave and matching Alejandro Collection top. Mendez is the fashion force behind these looks and others Blue has worn, as WWD confirmed last year, and has been quietly styling the young celebrity since before she was even born. He began his career with the Carters nearly a decade ago as Beyoncé’s personal assistant. In 2011, when the famed singer became pregnant with Blue, Mendez was tasked with keeping stock of and organizing the many gifts that poured in for the expecting mother. Eventually, that job turned into shopping for the newborn. “There were things I couldn’t find and couldn’t get, and

The Mandalorian: George Lucas Advised That Kids Are The Real Audience

Jon Favreau has revealed that he turned to George Lucas for a bit of guidance on the galaxy far, far away while shooting The Mandalorian TV series.

Showrunner Favreau has expressed his strong desire to return to the heart of the franchise, utilising the same storytelling principles established in the original saga, so he turned to the legendary Star Wars creator for some valuable advice on the best ways to move forward with this vision.

Moms on a Mission: Fighting Hunger and Teaching Kids to Be Thankful with ‘Turkey on the Table’

California moms April George and Kerry Maunus never dreamed a casual chat would lead them to spark a craze for a must-have Thanksgiving item, create a new holiday tradition – and help fight hunger at the same time.

It all started on an autumn day in 2013 when the new friends who bonded when George moved to the Bay area from Tennessee earlier that summer took a walk after dropping their kids off at school and happily discovered that Thanksgiving is their favorite holiday.

“We were talking about how it’s such a feel-good time when families gather together and how it’s so meaningful to understand how much you have to be thankful for,” says George, 46, who with Maunus, 42, is among PEOPLE’s 25 Women Changing the World.

The conversation turned to the importance of teaching kids to be grateful for what they have and to give back.

But how?

After weeks of brainstorming and online research, the answer came in the form of an adorable knit sweater-clad turkey with a Styrofoam body and attachable feathers for messages of gratitude.

Turkey on the Table, they called it, would look great as a Thanksgiving centerpiece and become a holiday tradition by encouraging those gathered around the table to talk about the very reason for the holiday: giving thanks.

“When we started to do the research on gratitude, we realized it’s not innate to be grateful,” says Maunus, who has three boys. “So the onus is on the family and the community to teach children about being grateful.”

For full coverage of PEOPLE’s 25 Women Changing the World, pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday

They also wanted to make sure a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the $ 39.99 turkey provide meals for those in need.

“We’re happy that this is bringing awareness to hunger in America,” says Maunus. “One in 8 people are food insecure, including single moms and people with jobs. Everyone should have access to food in this country.”

Instant Mompreneurs

Armed with a promising idea, the two stay-at-home moms had no clue how to get their idea from laptop to tabletop.

“We were two moms with zero experience in manufacturing and product design, but we thought this idea was too good not to do something with,” says George, who has two girls.

They made it work. “We learned to become very scrappy and figure things out, face challenges and work through them,” says Maunus, “We learned along the way.”

They found a factory in China to manufacture the turkeys and an artist to illustrate the tiny book Maunus wrote that comes with each one.

Before they knew it, “It became a full-time job,” says Maunus.

Two years later, in the fall of 2015, they were ready to sell their first batch.

“Initially we ordered 5,000 turkeys and friends said, ‘Girl, that’s a little aggressive. I don’t think you understand how many 5,000 is,’” says George. “But we were comfortable with that number.”

They threw a launch party to benefit their local food bank, donating a portion of proceeds from the fete to the charity – and told the people who came to spread the word.

“People bought them,” says Maunus. “Then, through the magic of Facebook and Instagram, word caught on quickly in Massachusetts and Indiana. That’s how we ended up with a handful of retailers.

“We sold out the Monday before Thanksgiving. We realized we were onto something.”

So were others.

The hunger relief organization Feeding America learned what the two moms were doing and offered to partner with them.

“We were shocked,” says George. “Partnering with Feeding America was the biggest miracle out of the sky.”

A New Reason to Give Thanks

Today, Turkey on the Table is sold online and in more than 1,500 retailers nationwide.

For each turkey sold, 10 meals are provided to people in need. To date, Turkey on the Table has provided 862,022 meals.

“Our goal is to reach the 1 million mark in 2018,” says Maunus.

They’re thrilled that Turkey on the Table is doing more than just helping to feed people.

“We’ve gotten letters from people saying thank you for helping us to create conversations about gratitude around our table,” says Maunus. “Knowing how many people we’ve helped keeps us going.”

COS Launches Official Kids’ Line

DRESSING UP: H&M-owned brand COS will now be catering to younger customers.
The Swedish label’s stores already carried clothes for children aged 1-4 years, but it didn’t have an official kids’ line.

The kids’ clothes feature the same block colors, luxe materials and graphic prints as the adult collections. COS Kids will also mark the brand’s first foray into baby wear.
Dropping Nov. 16, the baby line will comprise rompers, cardigans and blankets for ages 0-12 months. The unisex clothes are created in natural fabrics such as merino wool, cashmere and organic cotton, in a neutral color palette.
Both collections will feature accessories, books and toys, aiming to introduce children to art and design.

H&M Partners With WWF for Sustainable Kids’ Collection

SAVE THE SPECIES: Swedish retailer Hennes & Mauritz AB is collaborating with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) on a sustainable collection of children’s clothes, in its latest initiative designed to cement its green credentials in the eyes of increasingly eco-conscious consumers.
Launching Sept. 27, the line features items such as sweatshirts, leggings and hooded dresses in organic cotton, with 10 percent of each sale helping fund the wildlife conservation organization’s endangered species program.
Designs are printed with illustrations of at-risk species such as tigers, snow panthers, polar bears, elephants and penguins. WWF hopes the collection will raise awareness among the younger generation of consumers.

Celebrity Kids Are Getting in on Over-The-Top Dorm Room Trend: See Their Lavish College Digs

A simple bedspread and a poster stuck on the wall doesn’t cut it for college dorm decor anymore.

Today, incoming undergrads are upping their decorating agenda (and budget!) to give their dorms a more luxurious vibe. Many kids go all out, spending money on throw pillows, extra seating, beautiful storage and fun wall art to make their blank-slate digs feel like a Pinterest-perfect home.

In 2017, two Ole Miss students’ impeccably decorated dorm room went viral on social media. Their monogrammed pillows and tufted headboards looked incredibly high-end, but the girls did the whole thing on a budget, shopping at stores like TJ Maxx and Marshall’s to update their once-dreary space.

The same year, two freshmen at Texas State University showed off their lofted twin beds with canopies and faux brick wallpaper, which gave their room a city apartment vibe.

Now, celebrities’ kids are hopping on the trend of sprucing up their college living spaces.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards helped decorate her daughter Sophia Umansky’s suite-style dorm in Washington, D.C., with luxe velvet seating that doubles as shoe storage and gold wall fans that make it feel more like home.

“We really wanted this room to reflect her style so that she would feel like she was bringing a little piece of home with her here,” Kyle told PEOPLE of the space, which they decorated with pieces from HomeGoods. “It’s hard when you leave home, so we wanted her to feel comfy and just feel like it was her own personal space.”

“It’s not going to be a cookie-cutter dorm room where everybody’s room looks the same,” she said.

Umansky wanted a “retro glam” style, so the mother-daughter duo shopped with a blush and white color scheme in mind and added pops of gold.

Lisa Rinna‘s daughter Delilah Belle Hamlin moved into her first apartment in N.Y.C. in March ahead of her freshman year at New York University, where she starts in January. In decorating her two-bedroom, two-bathroom space, the 20-year-old runway model opted for youthful decorations like gold-accented bubble chairs suspending from the ceiling, furry millennial pink pillows and a delicate metal chandelier above her bed.

“Initially I wanted black, white, and gray, but the design team suggested a pop of color,” she told Town & Country in their August issue. “We went with pink, and I’m glad we did.”

Hamlin is hardly the first young celeb to forgo the college dorm experience for a swanky apartment. Before starting at NYU in 2004, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen reportedly dropped $ 7.3 million on four penthouse apartments in Greenwich village, turning them into a massive 5,725-square-foot abode. Although they decorated the space, the Olsens never lived in the apartment, instead choosing to live separately. Ultimately, they both dropped out of the university.

However, many celebrities and their children have opted for the traditional dorm route, and have even found ways to transform their hall-style rooms (with shared bathrooms for everyone!) into glam college crash pads. Boston University alumna Olivia Culpo teamed up with eBay for an affordable line of dorm decor to make college feel more like home.

“My dorm room showcased my personality with a cozy white rug and fresh flowers. I also tried pink wallpaper,” she told PEOPLE. “Now, would opt for a more minimal, clean look,” she said. “I might also add some gold accents to make it even more stylized.”

Tori Spelling Attends Movie Premiere with 3 of Her Kids in L.A.

Strike a pose!

On Monday, Tori Spelling took three of her kids out for a night on the town to attend the premiere of Disney’s Christopher Robin in Burbank, California. The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum posed for photos on the red carpet with daughters Stella, 10, Hattie, 6, and son Finn, 5.

Not in attendance was Spelling’s husband Dean McDermott and their two other kids, sons Liam, 11, and Beau, 1.

Spelling, 45, and McDermott, 51, celebrated their 12-year anniversary in May with a romantic trip to Hawaii. The getaway came two months after the couple made headlines for a series of domestic disturbance calls. On March 1, police were dispatched over a “disturbance” at the family home. LAPD Officer Drake Madison told PEOPLE the situation ended up being a “domestic incident” and that “no crime” was committed.

The couple went on to celebrate their son Beau’s first birthday on March 2, but six days later McDermott called the police to check on his wife after she left their house, according to TMZ. Police reportedly surrounded her doctor’s office in Thousand Oaks, California, before ultimately determining that both Spelling and the children were okay, according to the outlet.

A source told PEOPLE at the time that Spelling was “in a tough place” and “can get very stressed,” noting that it isn’t easy for her to juggle five young kids at home. But in the months since, Spelling and McDermott have been all smiles on social media.

“Had a great Saturday family date night with the entire family…” McDermott captioned a family photo on Instagram earlier this month. “Loving hard on my kiddos and my beautiful wife @torispelling I’m a lucky man! #family #familyfirst #love.”

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

Luann de Lesseps says she’s six months sober.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.”

Brad Pitt Spends Father’s Day in London with His Kids Amid Custody Dispute

It’s Father’s Day on the other side of the pond and Brad Pitt is celebrating with his children.

Last week, a judge presiding over Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s divorce proceedings established a detailed schedule for the actor to spend time with Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, who reside with Jolie as she films Maleficent 2 in London. The court papers obtained by PEOPLE stated, “the children not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them,” and that Jolie, 43, could lose full custody of the kids if she doesn’t allow them to grow their relationships with Pitt.

Maddox, 16, his oldest son isn’t included in the timetable. That’s because according to the court, Maddox is old enough to decide for himself how much time he wants to spend with his father.

“He is a great dad and always loved being with his kids,” a Pitt source says. “He doesn’t talk badly about Angie, but he feels it’s her fault that the kids don’t want to spend more time with him.”

RELATED VIDEO: Angelina Jolie Could Lose Primary Custody of Kids If Brad Pitt Isn’t Allowed Access: Report

Pitt has been in the U.K. since last week, when he was seen on Wednesday riding his bike across the Coworth Park hotel property, only a few miles from where Jolie and the kids stay in England.

When filming starts on his next movie, Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, later this summer, Pitt will balance his time between London and Los Angeles, where he maintains a “very busy schedule,” the insider says. “He often attends dinner parties, socializes with friends and attends events.”

For last year’s Father’s Day, Pitt celebrated one day early. Several of the kids were seen being dropped off at the Okja executive producer’s Los Angeles house in the morning, before flying out to France with their mom later that day.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor Highlights the ‘Wonders’ of Reading in New Memoir for Kids: See the Cover!

In 2013, Justice Sonia Sotomayor — the first Latina to attain a position on the Supreme Court — published her poignant memoir, My Beloved World, in which she describes growing up in drug-infested housing projects, her diabetes diagnosis at age 7, and her father’s death not long thereafter.

Her story struck a chord with readers, and prompted the New York City native to think about finding a way to share her inspiring journey with a younger demographic.

The 63-year-old has written a middle school version of her memoir, The Beloved World of Sonia Sotomayor, and a children’s book, Turning Pages: My Life Story — both out in September — and she’s given PEOPLE and People en Español the exclusive first look at the covers of the English and Spanish versions of Turning Pages.

“When I began thinking about creating a middle school version of my adult book, My Beloved World, I realized that I wanted to create a book for younger children that was also more accessible to them,” she tells PEOPLE in a statement. “A picture book seemed the perfect way to approach a younger generation.”

Both books reflect back on the strong women who raised her — and the importance of reading. They’re scheduled to publish concurrently on Sept. 4.

“Turning Pages is dedicated to my abuelita Mercedes, my mother Celina and all the women who have inspired me,” Sotomayor also says. “The book highlights most of the important moments of my life and explains how words in poetry, books, comic books, newspapers, magazines, and documents have shaped my life.”

For Sotomayor, the illustrations in Turning Pages are just as important as the story itself. The Justice chose Lulu Delacre as illustrator because she felt connected to the Puerto Rican-born artist, who has a background that’s similar to Sotomayor’s own. When she saw Delacre’s work for the first time it “shone bright” for her, Sotomayor explained.

The justice hopes that the children who read Turning Pages will feel the same excitement that she has “always felt in reading and learning about the world and all its mysteries, surprises, and wonders,” according to the statement. 

In her memoir, Sotomayor also reveals just how much reading has influenced her life. Though it was the show Perry Mason that inspired her to become a judge, her first dream to become a detective was influenced by the Nancy Drew books, according to the New York Times review of her memoir. As a young girl, she realized that her mind worked just like Nancy’s.

“I was a keen observer and listener. I picked up on clues. I figured things out logically, and I enjoyed puzzles,” she writes in My Beloved World, according to the Times. “I loved the clear, focused feeling that came when I concentrated on solving a problem and everything else faded out.”

The English and Spanish versions of Turning Pages go on sale Sept. 4.

Streetwear for New York’s Art Kids and Misfits

As streetwear continues to grow its mainstream appeal, New York artists are shifting their attentions to clothes as a wearable medium.
Their designs have become merch for the underground elite — those who look beyond mainstream brands like Supreme or Kith for logoed goods that speak to niche predilections.
For many artists, T-shirts, jewelry, sweatshirts and jackets — rather than posters or prints — are a new, tangible method for spreading a visual gospel. The onetime snobbery associated with commercialism has begun to subside, particularly following a recent burst bubble in the young artist market.
Clothes, a “lighthearted medium” as one artist described them, offer financial, marketing and community-building returns. “It’s like a walking billboard,” another artist noted.
The movement’s ripple effects were evident at art fairs across New York City last week, where exhibitors at NADA, Spring/Break and Independent broke with convention, and were seen selling wearable, artist-designed objects from their booths.

Newlywed Kelsea Ballerini Wants to Have Kids ‘One Day’ But Will Wait — Because ‘I’m 24!’

Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans are married now, but don’t expect the Nashville couple to expand their family any time soon.

“I’m 24, I’m not in a rush,” Ballerini tells PEOPLE. “It’s something we’re both stoked to do — one day down the track.”

The “Legends” singer and her fellow country crooner, 32, tied the knot Dec. 2 on the beach in an intimate ceremony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The wedding came at a particularly exciting and stressful time for the bride. The Grammy nominee spent much of 2017 on the road opening for Lady Antebellum, and in November, the star released her sophomore album, Unapologetically.

Watch People Weddings: Kelsea Ballerini & Morgan Evans, available now, on PeopleTV. Go to PeopleTV.com, or download the PeopleTV app on your favorite mobile or connected TV device.

“My album is like a chronological story, and it ends with the whole story of meeting him, and then being with him forever,” says Ballerini. “It’s very fitting that we got married and kind of end the story where the record ends it.”

But Ballerini and “Kiss Somebody” singer Evans’ story is just beginning, and the couple say they’re looking forward to “everything.”

For much more on Morgan Evans and Kelsea Ballerini’s wedding, including more exclusive photos, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands everywhere Friday.

“The great thing about both of us is we both wanted to be rock stars. That’s our dream, that’s our goal,” says Ballerini. “When I was younger I was dreaming about touring and stuff, and same with him. So I think it’s just been us making the dream together rather than having it separately and then combining it.”

Ballerini and Evans’s whirlwind romance began in March 2016. They cohosted the CMCs, an Australian country music award show, and sparks flew at the afterparty, where they shared their first kiss. They began dating as soon as they returned to Nashville, and nine months later, on Christmas Day, Evans popped the question.

For more coverage, follow our country magazine on Flipboard.

“Nine months seems like a short amount of time,” says Evans, but “it was pretty obvious something awesome was happening.”

Now with their wedding behind them, the pair look forward to an increasingly busy 2018, as both have jam-packed tour schedules. But distance won’t get them down.

“When you can do everything you want and then share it with someone,” says Ballerini, “that makes for a full life.”

My Cause, My Cleats: How Russell Wilson’s Shoes Are Inspiring Kids to Ask Themselves ‘Why Not You?’

Long before Russell Wilson led the Seattle Seahawks to a Super Bowl win in 2014, the athletically gifted future quarterback was drafted to the Colorado Rockies in the fourth round of the MLB draft on June 8, 2010. But just a day after the then-recent college graduate reached the milestone, his beloved father — Harrison Wilson III — passed away of complications from diabetes at the age of 55.

“Ever since that moment I knew I wanted to strive for something great,” Wilson, 28, who joined the Seahawks in 2012 after a short stint playing minor league baseball, tells PEOPLE. “I wanted to strive for something great. I wanted to be able to accomplish all the things I wanted to accomplish and the question, ‘why not you?’ kept coming up in my head.”

Wilson held on to that question — which his father asked him many times throughout keys points in his life — and in 2014, he formed the Why Not You Foundation, an organization focused on motivating and empowering today’s youth. Through the foundation, Wilson has become deeply involved with the Seattle Children’s Hospital, and was able to raise more than a million dollars for the medical facility and its Strong Against Cancer initiative last year.

As a part of the NFL’s “My Cause, My Cleats” campaign — which allows players to wear customized cleats that showcase their charitable causes — Wilson will be wearing specialized “Why Not You” cleats featuring designs submitted by kids from the Seattle Children’s Hospital during the Seahawks game this Sunday night against the Jaguars. About 1,000 players will be showcasing their causes during Week 13 games, according to the NFL, and players will be sharing pictures of their cleats and the stories behind them using the hashtag #mycausemycleats on social media.

Players who participate will be able to auction off their cleats to raise funds for their cause at NFL Auction after the game.

“Six kids from Seattle Children’s told us if they could dream one thing that could come true, one thing that could happen, what would that thing be?” Wilson says. “What would that why not you thing be? That’s what’s displayed on the cleats.”

The quarterback credits his parents with teaching him the importance of service, and it’s something Wilson wants to pass along to his daughter, Sienna Princess Wilson, whom he welcomed with his wife, Ciara, in April.

“I want my kids to know that this life is about serving others and loving others and giving back to others. That’s where the true reward is — making other peoples’ lives a little bit better,” Wilson says. “The mission of the Why Not You Foundation is to empower and change one individual, one child at a time.”

In many ways, the foundation is also helping to keep the spirit of Wilson’s father alive by striving to show children the potential in themselves that Harrison helped Wilson to see.

“He was always a big dreamer. He gave me an imagination, and he allowed me to dream,” Wilson says. “He used to ask me, ‘Why not you?’ and that was really the fundamental core question of my life, of my growth, and it still is today.”

Just like his father, Wilson is still dreaming big, and his next goal is to raise more than a billion dollars for Strong Against Cancer through his foundation.

For kids who are struggling to find motivation or confidence within themselves, Wilson has two suggestions for them: surrender and surround.

“Surrender to what you believe in, whether it’s your faith or what you want to be successful in. You have to strive for that every day. To be really great at something you have to strive for it every day and believe that you can make it,” he says. “And then surround yourself with those people who will encourage you.”

William H. Macy on Shameless Son’s Arrest for Alleged DUI: ‘Hollywood Is Tough on Kids’

 

William H. Macy is a concerned father — on- and off-screen.

The Shameless actor recently spoke out about his TV son Ethan Cutkosky’s arrest for an alleged DUI, acknowledging that growing up in the spotlight can be challenging for young actors.

“I love those guys,” he told TMZ of the Showtime series’ Gallagher brood, who struggle to raise themselves and deal with their alcoholic father, played by Macy.

“I worry about them,” he added. “A young person growing up as an actor — Hollywood is tough on kids.”

Of 18-year-old Cutkosky, who plays Carl Gallagher, Macy, 67, said he’s a “great guy.”

Cutkosky was arrested Wednesday in Los Angeles for allegedly driving under the influence, according to multiple reports.

Burbank police pulled Cutkosky’s vehicle over after it was allegedly spotted straddling traffic lines, the Associated Press reported. He was later arrested, with blood-alcohol test still pending.

Cutkosky, who was reportedly driving an orange BMW, was given a field sobriety test during the pull-over, TMZ reported. Sources told the outlet that Cutkosky allegedly admitted to smoking marijuana that night.

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.”

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.’ ”
