Bulgari Reveals Two Movies for 2019 Tribeca Film Festival: ‘Celestial’ and ‘The 4th Wave’

THE SEVENTH ART: Bulgari owes a lot to the film industry.
That’s according to chief executive officer Jean-Christophe Babin who, speaking on a recent afternoon from the Bulgari offices in New York, said movies played a huge role in contributing to the company’s popularity in the Sixties and Seventies.
“We were a tiny family company then,” he explained. “Actors and producers from the U.S. came to Rome, spent months here and discovered the store on Via Dei Condotti. It was a side they’d never seen before, made of contrast, of volume, Cabochon — it totally defined the new rules of jewelry.”
Bulgari’s wares — which actresses like Elizabeth Taylor and Sharon Stone coveted — created a style which established contact between the Hollywood community working on movies at Cinecittà Studios in Rome. Word of mouth gradually drove the global development of the company.
It makes sense, then, that Bulgari would participate in the realm of filmmaking today. For 2019, the brand is continuing this tradition of working alongside the arts as artisans, as the official jeweler of the Tribeca Film Festival, Bulgari has partnered with Tribeca Studios on two short films — part of their multiyear series highlighting trailblazing women working in

Teen Mom OG Star Bristol Palin Reveals She’s Had a Stalker for 10 Years

There’s a scary reason behind Bristol Palin’s new-home jitters.

In a sneak peek of Monday’s episode of Teen Mom OG, Bristol shows off her new house in Austin to her sister Piper over FaceTime before revealing that her ex-husband Dakota Meyer’s Kentucky house was recently broken into.

“So last night was my first night in the house, and I got a text message pretty late from Dakota saying that his house had got broken into,” Bristol, 28, explains. “His Kentucky house. I swear to God, it was the stalker.”

When Piper, 17, asks her if she’s positive it was her stalker, Bristol responds “for sure,” because Meyer has it on camera.

“I get maybe four hours of sleep as it is because I’ve had this constant threat for 10 years,” Bristol continues.

“The guy’s on the freakin’ loose,” Piper responds. “That is so scary.”

Bristol also reflects on moving out with her three kids: Tripp, 9, Sailor, 2, and Atlee, 1. “It’s scary starting over, but it’s exciting at the same time,” she says.

Bristol had previously lived with Meyer in Austin. During the Oct. 22 episode of Teen Mom, she detailed how how he had moved her things out of their shared bedroom while she was in California after their breakup.

The pair called off their first wedding in May 2015 but later reunited and got married in June 2016. Meyer filed for divorce in February, and they finalized it earlier this summer. While Bristol shares her two daughters with Meyer, she shares son Tripp with her ex-fiancé Levi Johnston

Teen Mom OG airs Mondays (9 p.m. ET) on MTV.

Padma Lakshmi Reveals Speaking Out About Her Rape Prompted One Woman’s Attacker to Apologize

Padma Lakshmi‘s op-ed in the New York Times was not only a way for her to speak her truth, it was a way for others to realize the truth about their own actions.

The Top Chef host, 48, spoke at the Open Endoscopy Forum on Friday — just three days after she wrote a powerful in a piece for the Times in which she revealed she was raped by her 23-year-old boyfriend when she was 16.

Speaking at the forum held at that Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Lakshmi told the audience that she had one woman approach her to tell the host how she was personally impacted by the op-ed.

“There was this woman that came up to me and said, ‘I read your piece and I wanna thank you and it was really moving,’” she recalls of her interaction.

The woman then went on to explain that she received “an email from someone I haven’t seen since high school, and it was the boy who assaulted me. And he sent me the link to the article and he said, ‘I’m sorry. I didn’t know then what I know now and I shouldn’t have ever done that to you. And I apologize.’”

While Lakshmi explained that the past week has been a whirlwind and difficult to process, she has no regrets of sharing her story.

“I’m very glad I did it,” she said. “The stories women and men have shared with me have become some of the most moving things I have read, felt, discussed in my life.”

“I had a family write to me yesterday morning about their daughter who was raped last week on campus. And she went to campus police and did all of the things you need to do: rape kit, examined,” she explained. “And then her father wrote to me because he said she was having second thoughts about pressing charges. I don’t blame her and I don’t think anybody can blame her. It certainly underlined the truth.”

Lakshmi also told the audience on Friday that she felt compelled to write the op-ed in light of the inquiry into the sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, calling it “an emergency situation.”

“I was just so incensed,” she said. “I think what helped was that it was a time sensitive issue. When I wrote it, I thought the vote was gonna be Monday so I knew I had to act fast. The emergency of that forced my hand.”

“Since then, the stories I’ve heard have been — I don’t even know how to verbalize how I feel yet,” she continued. “It has been compelling and it’s like a hundred times magnified feeling that I felt when I first shared my saga with endometriosis.”

The author has been a longtime advocate of raising awareness for endometriosis since being diagnosed as a teen. She previously revealed to PEOPLE that her health condition left her bedridden “once a week, every month.”

“No one wants to talk about their period. It’s not my nature to go on TV and talk about my vagina, but it was such a good cause,” she told PEOPLE in March. “I saw how much better my life was after I had surgery and got the proper treatment. I was like, ‘Oh! This is what normal people feel like.’”

Lakshmi, who co-founded of the Endometriosis Foundation of America in 2009, also touched upon the “emotional disease” during her appearance at MIT and encouraged women to share their experiences, which often go unspoken about.

“It’s quite a foreign thing, especially for women,” she told the audience. “Anything to do with our sexual organs or reproduction system has been pushed away and not been talked about. We have not been encouraged to share our experience.”

Added Lakshmi: “If I think about my adult life in the last 20 years, I would say that the most significant moments of my life have always sprung from when I have shared some story when I have listened to a story from someone else.”

Meghan Markle Reveals the Secret Way Her Wedding Veil Honored Her First Date with Prince Harry

It doesn’t get more romantic than this.

In a sneak peek from the upcoming HBO documentary Queen of the World, Meghan Markle opens up about the secret tribute to her first date with Prince Harry hidden within her spectacular 16-foot wedding veil.

While getting a chance to see her dress for the first time after tying the knot in May, Meghan, 37, reveals the special significance behind a “piece of blue fabric” stitched inside.

“Somewhere in here there’s a piece of blue fabric that’s stitched inside — it was my something blue,” Meghan remarks while inspecting the veil in the video above.

Sweetly, she adds, “It’s fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date.”

Of course, the cathedral-length veil also represented a special connection to the Commonwealth.

The bride’s headpiece, made from silk tulle, featured a trim of hand-embroidered flowers from each of the 53 counties in the Commonwealth, the family of nations linked to the U.K., in threads and organza.

“I’m really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together,” Meghan says in another clip. “And I think the other members of the family had a similar reaction and just appreciation for the fact that we understand how important this is for us and the role that we play, and the work that we’re going to continue to do within the Commonwealth countries.”

Meghan adds: “It was good news all around, I think, so I hope people like it as much as I liked helping to create it.”

Designer Clare Waight Keller previously told PEOPLE that the idea came to her after several conversations with Meghan about what “story” she wanted to tell with the celebration.

“There was a conversation early on about the story that we were going to tell through this wedding,” she said. “Part of what I wanted to do was talk to her about what type of stories they could be. The fact that her and Prince Harry will be working a lot in the Commonwealth was something that I thought was really intriguing and could be something built on to be part of the day.”

“We had different conversations back and forth and I came up with the idea of maybe representing each of the countries, the 53 countries of the Commonwealth, through their flora and fauna,” she added. “We both loved the story of that. It also meant that single one of those countries also journeyed up the aisle with her. It was a really poetic moment.”

A palace source previously told PEOPLE that Meghan takes part in “a conversation, a stand-up chat” for the film. The series will also feature appearances from Harry, Prince Charles and Prince William.

Pregnant Carrie Underwood Reveals She Suffered 3 Miscarriages in Last 2 Years: ‘I Got Mad’

Carrie Underwood has revealed that she suffered from three miscarriages in the last two years.

Underwood — who shares Isaiah, 3, with hockey player husband Mike Fisher, 38, and has a baby on the way — opened up about her challenging fertility struggles in an interview on CBS Sunday Morning, saying she experienced the first miscarriage in 2017.

“I’d kind of planned that 2017 was, you know, going to be the year that I work on new music, and I have a baby,” Underwood said. “We got pregnant early 2017, and didn’t work out.”

Underwood says she leaned into her faith at the time. “And that was the thing, in the beginning, it was like, ‘Okay, God, we know this is, just wasn’t Your timing. And that is all right. We will bounce back and figure our way through it.’”

After suffering a second miscarriage in 2017 and a third in 2018, “at that point, it was just kind of like, ‘Okay, like, what’s the deal? What is all of this?’” said Underwood.

“I had always been afraid to be angry,” Underwood explained of her reaction to the heartbreak on CBS. “Because we are so blessed. And my son, Isaiah, is the sweetest thing. And he’s the best thing in the world. And I’m like, ‘If we can never have any other kids, that’s okay, because he’s amazing.’ And I have this amazing life. Like, really, what can I complain about? I can’t. I have an incredible husband, incredible friends, an incredible job, an incredible kid. Can I be mad? No.”

One of her most emotional moments came as she cuddled with her son and thought, “Why on Earth do I keep getting pregnant if I can’t have a kid? Like, what is this? Shut the door. Like, do something. Either shut the door or let me have a kid.”

“And for the first time, I feel like I actually I told God how I felt,” she added. “That was like a Saturday — and the Monday I went to the doctor to, like, confirm, another miscarriage. And they told me everything was great!”

She said, “He heard me.”

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

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson just knew.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bachelor in Paradise’s Ashley Iaconetti Reveals If She and Jared Haibon Would Get Married on TV

Much of Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon‘s love story has played out on the small screen — so it only makes sense that their wedding probably will, too.

The newly engaged Iaconetti opened up about the couple’s relationship and plans for the future on the latest episode of iHeartRadio’s Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous podcast, and it’s safe to say they’re fully basking in the honeymoon phase.

“Since we’ve been dating in March, we haven’t had any sort of fight,” she revealed. “I feel like Jared and I kind of did it in reverse. We had all our challenges — as not a couple — in the beginning, and now we’ve entered this honeymoon phase which is so weird, because normally the honeymoon phase happens for Bachelor couples on the show, which it was definitely not for us.”

The Bachelor in Paradise alum also confirmed that their engagement will play out on the upcoming season 5 this summer. As for whether she saw the proposal coming?

“I had an inkling — I was like, 50/50,” she said. “I thought it was going to happen for a couple of weeks leading up to it, and then the week of everyone was throwing me off. So I knew that Jared would ask my dad — he always said he would ask my dad — but I talked to my parents and they were like, ‘Ashley, he did not call.’ Total straight faces. He did call; my parents are apparently really good actors. So is my sister!”

Now, Iaconetti says she’s “the happiest ever” — and is anxiously awaiting her Neil Lane ring to get sized.

“Oh my god — it’s perfect, perfect, perfect,” she gushed. “It’s exactly what I always imagined on my finger. Jared and my sister kind of worked together on putting it together.”

“I think we’re both down , but our caveat is that we want as many guests as we want and we don’t want to be limited to that,” she said. “So I think if we couldn’t have it the way we imagined is the only reason we wouldn’t do it. We want it!”

RHONY’s Luann de Lesseps Reveals She Ate a Bologna Sandwich in Prison: ‘It Was So Sad’

Luann de Lesseps‘ Christmas Eve arrest in Palm Beach, Florida was a frightening experience for the mother of two. But months later, de Lesseps’ has been able to look back on the experience and find humor in some of her lowest moments — even laughing at the meal she was given during the night she spent in jail.

On Wednesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, de Lesseps recounted her darkest day to fellow Housewife Dorinda Medley, peeling back the curtain as to what happened after she was arrested.

“I had a sundress on, I had no shoes, no blanket, no water, no nothing,” she recalled. “They threw me a bologna sandwich, which was so crazy. You know the last time I had a bologna sandwich? Probably 40 years ago!”

“I took a big bite out of that and inside was the mustard packet,” de Lesseps said, with a laugh. “I pull out, it was almost like a dead fish hanging out of my mouth. It was just so pathetic and so sad.”

De Lesseps was visiting Palm Springs for the holidays when she was discovered trespassing in a hotel room with an unidentified man. The pair had entered the wrong room at the Colony Hotel due to one too many cocktails and a mixup of what floor they were on, she said. When authorities approached her and asked her to leave, de Lesseps got confused and defiant.

Police said Lesseps slammed a door and kicked at least one officer. “Officer O’Leary then attempted to detain de Lesseps and remove her from the bathroom, at which time De Lesseps shoved Officer O’Leary with an open palm to the chest, then slammed the door on Officer O’Leary face, striking him in the forehead. While de Lesseps was being placed in handcuffs she resisted by pushing and pulling away from Officer O’Leary and I,” the police report stated.

The incident, shown on the Bravo program in video that was captured by officers from the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Department on the scene, was a tough one to watch.

“Don’t touch me,” de Lesseps can be heard yelling at one officer. “I’m gonna kill you. I’ll kill you. I will kill you.”

She was charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant (de Lesseps’ since pleaded not guilty and rejected a plea deal in February).

After de Lesseps’ arrest, she told PEOPLE that that being in Palm Beach nearly a year after she wed now-ex Tom D’Agostino in the Florida destination “brought up long-buried emotions.”

It didn’t help that the Colony Hotel was the same place she had her wedding brunch after saying her “I dos.”

Now sober after a 21-day stint in an alcohol treatment facility, de Lesseps revealed on an episode of RHONY earlier this month that she was grateful the experience pushed her to slow down.

“I’m not proud of what happened,” she said. “But I’m learning a lot about myself. I found the right place to be to take care of myself. I’m finally dealing with what I was trying to drink myself out of — which is dealing with my emotions from the marriage to Tom. I knew that I needed help to get that under control, but I didn’t ask for it. And you know what? I hit a wall. I just wish it wouldn’t have been a brick wall.”

She told similar things in to PEOPLE in April, saying that despite losing friends, she’s found a silver lining in her arrest.

“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.”

“When I was probably in the fifth grade, I didn’t like being a Boy Scout. I wanted to be a Girl Scout. My mom said, ‘You can’t be in the Girl Scouts. That’s for girls, you’re a boy.’ And that’s when I told my mom that I wanted to be a girl,” she says. “I don’t think she really took me seriously at first, but some months later her and my father both realized that something was wrong or different about me. And unfortunately they went to the Church and asked for guidance, and the Church recommended conversation therapy.”

“And then a childhood nightmare began for me, for about a year,” she tells the camera in an interview.

JAY-Z Reveals ‘the Most Beautiful Thing’ Daughter Blue Ivy Has Ever Told Him

JAY-Z is opening up about his close relationship with his daughter Blue Ivy.

The 48-year-old rapper will appear on David Letterman‘s new Netflix show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, on Friday. In a sneak peek of the episode, which Today premiered on Wednesday, the father of three recounted one of his favorite moments he’s shared with his eldest child.

“I told her to get in the car the other day because she was asking a thousand questions and we had to leave for school,” he told the talk show host. “So we’re driving, and I hear a little voice. ‘Dad?’ I turn around and she said, ‘I didn’t like when you told me to get in the car the way you told me. It hurt my feelings.’ ”

Though she’s only 6, JAY-Z was proud of his little girl for speaking her mind and standing up for herself. “That’s the most beautiful thing you’ve ever said to me,” he said.

JAY-Z’s chat with Letterman is filled with candid confessions.

In a clip released Monday, the Roc Nation founder opened up about the time his mother Gloria Carter came out to him — a conversation that he said left him weeping tears of joy.

“Imagine having to live your life as someone else and you think you’re protecting your kids. And for my mother to have to live as someone that she wasn’t and hide and protect her kids … didn’t want to embarrass her kids for all this time. And for her to sit in front of me and say, ‘I think I love someone…’ I mean, I really cried. That’s a real story,” JAY-Z said.

“I cried because I was so happy for her that she was free,” he continued, explaining that he later celebrated her sexuality in a duet titled “Smile,” from his June album, 4:44. “This happened eight months ago when the album was being made. She told me. I made the song the next day.”

He also described the distinct qualities individual rappers bring to the table, proving his point with impressions of Snoop Dogg and Eminem.

“You can have a great voice, and you can just almost say anything,” JAY-Z said. “I think Snoop Dogg has a great voice — he can say ‘One-two-three and to the four.’ I was like ‘Oh my God.’ It just sounds good, right?”

“Or you can be someone like Eminem and just have amazing cadence and syncopation,” he said, imitating the rapper’s style. “There’s percussion inside the music, so there’s multiple ways to be really good. Some people just have it all.”

Sam Smith Reveals He Used to ‘Weigh Himself Every Day’

Sam Smith used to have an unhealthy relationship with his weight.

In the new issue of V magazine, during an interview with his friend and long-time fan Sarah Jessica Parker, the 25-year-old singer revealed that at the start of his music career, he spent a lot of time obsessing over his body.

“When I was shooting my first music videos, I just wasn’t happy with the way I looked, so I was trying to control the way the camera moved,” Smith said. “I got a bit obsessive. I was constantly looking in the mirror, pinching my waist, weighing myself every day.”

But the Brit added that these days he’d “gotten to a place where I really love my stretch marks and I just enjoy my body.”

The “Too Good at Goodbyes” singer went on to say that even though he’s embraced body positivity, sometimes he still gets sick of himself.

“My job is very self-indulgent: I have to listen to my voice daily, I make decisions on what tour posters or album covers look like, I look at my face while sitting in the makeup chair. I get kind of sick of myself, so I trust my team,” Smith continued.

But no matter how much he’s learned to love himself, Smith feels like “my body image is always going to be an issue.”

“I need to constantly train myself to watch the right sort of films, to not look at certain ads and think that’s how my stomach should look. It’s something that I’m fighting every day,” he said, adding that he thinks body image struggles are something “men should talk about” more frequently.
