Rumor: Marcus Morris left agent Rich Paul over backing out of Spurs deal to join Knicks

Thes are the facts on the ground: Powerful agent Rich Paul negotiated a two-year, $ 20 million contract for Marcus Morris with the Spurs, and he verbally agreed to it. The Spurs made a series of moves to clear out the cap space to honor that agreement. However, by the time the moratorium ended and players could sign deals, Morris had started to move on and soon reached a new, one-year, $ 15 million contract with the Knicks.

In honor of Taiwanese brand Shiatzy Chen’s 40th anniversary, friends and fans of the house took over the basement of the Palais de Tokyo, painted in vivid colors.

The opulent collection would fit right into Yeoh’s upcoming role as Eleanor Sung-Young in “Crazy Rich Asians,” directed by Jon M. Chu and adapted from Kevin Kwan’s best-selling novel of the same name. She will also star a comedy director and respected action choreographer’s Yuen Woo-Ping.

Alessandra Rich RTW Spring 2018

Alessandra Rich always concocts a charmingly daffy story, usually of a young girl with big dreams and questionable taste, within which to frame her ditzy-fab dresses. For spring it began with the iconic “V-J Day in Times Square” photo of a sailor impulsively kissing a nurse (she was actually a dental assistant) in celebration of the end of the Second World War. Rich had a new story for the nurse: “The young girl moved on, she still loves uniforms, matched with diamond brooches and huge jewel buttons, but now you’re going to have to fight to kiss her,” read the show notes, which were as fun and fanciful as the collection.
As the girl moved on, Rich did too, expanding beyond her standard repertoire of glam, gauche dresses with military-inspired tailoring and posh but plucky tweeds. A blue admirals jacket was done with rhinestone buttons instead of brass and a cheekier — literally — version was cut just below the bum and worn as a dress. Although worn with geek-chic glasses with gold chain-link lanyards, Rich’s tweed jackets were more suited to a day at the pool than the library as they came in candy colors and were worn with HotPants.

Running Rich: Dawn Patrol Is an Experience for the Senses

During the Monterey Classic Car Week, there’s one event on the Peninsula that invitees wake up before dawn to attend. Dawn Patrol is a curiosity, a stench of seaweed and fumes, a darkness in the light, the sun breaking through the clouds of Monterey Bay, over the shapes of what we’ve collectively deemed as automotive icons. It’s a gathering that once belonged to a small but merry band of masochists, but has since exploded: More and more are now willing to wake up at 4 or 5 a.m. and drive through the woods to the shores of Pebble Beach Golf Club so they can be among the first to see that year’s line-up of cars.

The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance gets crowded, after all; better get up early and check your Rolex.

Wake up when it’s still pitch black and it is a surreal feeling to watch the skinny trees pass by, lit up by the headlights. When you arrive there’s always more people than you expect. You’re in that zone of semi-awakening—too tired to stay alert, too awake to sleep if you needed to, but not willing to try.

And then the cars roll in. Roaring up the lawn, between the crowd, past the white ropes. The crowd curves around the ropes, directing the cars onto the lawn, reminiscent of the old Group B rallies where people moved out of the way for jumping Audi Quattros. The Ferraris fly past the crowd twelve cylinders barking while the coachbuilt Bentleys and prewar Rolls-Royces dazzle with their silence. Both equally impress, phones and cameras raised in the air. And the fog and the steam and the blue smoke and the exhaust fumes swirl around in the Monterey Bay, a tantalizing preview of what’s gonna happen for the next 12 hours.

But hey. For all of your sleep deprivation you get a free hat. When the fog burns off around noon you’re going to need it.

Rich Hilfiger Does Tango Hotel Brand

Rich Hilfiger, a recording artist and Tommy Hilfiger’s son, has caught the apparel bug.
Joining forces with Al-Baseer Holly (Bonic), a rapper turned visual artist, and pro skateboarder Stevie Williams, the longtime friends have launched a lifestyle brand built on “permanent vacation,” an ideal all three founders not only promote but live their lives by.
Named Tango Hotel, the Los Angeles company had a quiet launch last July in Miami (without any product to speak of), where it partnered with Agenda to host the trade show’s kickoff event at Raleigh Hotel, owned by Tommy Hilfiger, with a poolside performance by Travis Scott.
Tango Hotel was launched in select Macy’s stores across the country in June, with a collection of men’s designer socks and briefs featuring original artwork from both Rich Hilfiger and Holly.  It was also shipped to specialty boutiques and is being sold at Tangohotelbrand.com with prices starting at $ 12 for socks and $ 25 for briefs.
“The brand is all about the idea of Tango Hotel being a place of permanent vacation, a state of mind,” Holly said.
“The Tango fit is how underwear is supposed to fit, it feels like you have nothing on,” Hilfiger added. “We have the best looking waistband in

London Sunday Times Publishes Rich List, With Brexit a Big Wealth Factor

THE WEALTH DIARIES: The 2017 Sunday Times of London Rich List is out, ranking British — and international — billionaires and millionaires whose wealth reflects the shape-shifting world economy over the past 12 months.
The 29th annual edition of the list includes Britain’s 1,000 richest people, and the compilers argue that many of the 134 billionaires were able to amass even more wealth from the “post-Brexit boom” last year, which fueled the stock market and pushed down the value of the pound. New money, they said, came mainly from the city of London, property and manufacturing.
“While many of us worried about the outcome of the EU referendum, many of Britain’s richest people just kept calm and carried on making billions,” said Robert Watts, who compiled the list.
A sidebar to the main story is the International Rich List, which is even more interesting than the British one. At number one is the Walton family, owners of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., whose net worth is estimated to be 100.6 billion pounds, or $ 136.82 billion; at number four is Inditex owner Amancio Ortega, with a fortune of 63.5 billion pounds, or $ 86.36 billion; while at number 12, there’s Bernard Arnault, whose net worth is calculated to be 35.2

Rich Wife Loves to Play On the Side


I had to decide what to wear and then I got an idea. Jeremy was no longer around to get me ready to go out, I had let him go when Nathan had his own staff members start to take care of me. “I want you to get me ready to go out tonight.” I said to him as I straddled his lap. He thought for a moment and replied, “I think that would be a magnificent idea!” He said with a bigger grin. We went upstairs to my big walk-in closet filled with dresses from every hot designer that was available. I had a separate closet for my shoes and purses. A few days ago Nathan had returned from a business trip in Paris and had brought me back a lot of sexy lingerie, panties, bras and stockings with garters. I went to my drawer and opened it and told Nathan to pick out my panties, bra and stockings for me to wear for that night. He picked out a silk and lace pair of panties with the matching bra that went with it. He then pulled out a pair of black silk thigh high stockings with satin garters. He laid them out on the table for me in the closet. Nathan then walked into my closet and pulled out a tight pink and black silk dress with a plunging back and cut low enough in the front to see a good amount of my cleavage from my ample breasts. I hadn’t worn that dress yet, it was still in the plastic wrap from the boutique where Nathan had bought it for me the week we had met. It was the first dress he had bought for me on his own and brought it home to surprise me. I thought it was ironic that I would be wearing the first dress he had bought to go out to lure a young hot guy to me.

Apollo Theater Celebrates Its Rich Legacy With 10th Annual Spring Gala

Monday night marked the 10th anniversary of the Apollo Theater’s annual Spring Gala, which was met with much fanfare.

The event, which featured a celebratory benefit concert, was hosted by Extra TV correspondent AJ Calloway and featured star-studded performances from Nile Rodgers and his pioneering disco-funk group Chic, Ne-Yo, Luke James, Rosanne Cash, “The Voice” season 8 contestant Kimberly Nichole and South African a capella trio The Soil.

During his opening monologue, Calloway shared some of his personal experiences and memories of the Apollo.

“I used to sneak into the Apollo when I was in high school,” Calloway said. “I was in [New] Jersey, my parents didn’t know I was here, but I used to watch Amateur Night so I’m very happy to be on this stage. And I started my career here. The first time I was on this stage was ‘106 & Park’ and that was 15 years ago. So I’m really, really happy to be here.”

In addition to Calloway’s return to the Apollo stage, the event also served as a homecoming for Rodgers, who landed his second professional gig performing with the theater’s house band. Prior to taking to the stage to perform a medley of Chic’s biggest hits, Rodgers opened up to The Huffington Post about the significance of headlining this year’s annual gala.

“When I played here I was 19-years-old,” Rodgers said. “I had just finished a year with ‘Sesame Street,’ which was my first professional job. And I was just telling the band how it was the first time I walked out onto this stage. It’s amazing for me to be here now, all these years later playing my own music, which is crazy.”

For Apollo Theater President & CEO, Jonelle Procope the Gala has served as an important part in the theater’s growth for the past 10 years.

“Although the Apollo is now in its 81st year, we have only been a nonprofit since 1991 and I would say it has really been over the last 10 years that the institution has experienced tremendous growth as a nonprofit with expanded artistic, educational and community programs,” Procope said to the Huffington Post.

“The Gala, which is one of our largest fundraisers, has provided crucial support toward those initiatives. It also allows us to celebrate and honor the Apollo’s rich legacy as the musical home for so many legendary artists like Nile Rodgers and the opportunity to continue that legacy as an important springboard for the next generation of artists.”

The benefit, which raises funds for the theater’s education and community outreach programs, also honored James Dolan, President and CEO of Cablevision Systems Corporation and Executive Chairman of Madison Square Garden, who accepted the Corporate Award on behalf of The Madison Square Garden Company, and Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation, who accepted the Percy C. Sutton Civic Leadership Award on behalf of The Ford Foundation.

America Is Owned and Operated by Rich Douchebags

Many years ago, as I sat in the backyard of a comedy condo in Treasure Island Florida, a wild-eyed old hippy, with a broken down boat, suggested I read a book called A People’s History Of The United States by Howard Zinn. It sounded sort of subversive, so it interested me.

I went to the library and tried to track it down. Couldn’t find it. Probably had the title wrong or something. But it stuck in the back of my mind. Then recently, I was watching Tavis Smiley and he mentioned the book and the author. This time I found it and read it. Frankly, every American should read it, or a book like it. Something by Noam Chomsky would be close. In fact, Howard Zinn makes reference to Chomsky’s writing several times in A People’s History Of The United States.

Why is this book so important, you ask. Because it defines, in great detail the fact that this country is and always has been run by a small handful of very rich douchebags!

Now, you might say, “Rich douchebags?” that implies that just being rich makes someone a bad person. That is nothing more than class envy.

Wrong. These people really are douchebags. By almost anybody’s definition, except perhaps their own.

I’m not even going to accuse them of douchebaggery due to the fact that many of these people, including the Founding Fathers, owned slaves. Lets pretend that was just a societal aberration of their time. Like wearing powdered wigs and having syphilis.

So what made and makes the one percent of our population who own 40 percent of the nation’s wealth, so awful?

Well, for one thing, up until the last 80 or 90 years, they routinely ended any labor unrest, such as strikes or sit ins, with armed goons beating and shooting strikers. And these strikers would be people like children, working in coal mines and striking to shorten their 16 hour work days. After beatings and shootings and imprisonment, the bosses, many of whom were great heroes of American industry, like Andrew Carnegie and J.P. Morgan, would make sure that all strike organizers, who survived, would be fired and blacklisted.

In fact, all of the concessions won for labor by unions in the past century, came inch by inch with thousands of casualties along the way. It would be fair to say that the richest people in America were no more enthusiastic about the human rights of their workers than white Southerners were about giving black people their rights, during segregation.

It would also be fair to say that today’s robber barons earn the coveted Douchebag Award for outsourcing labor to sweatshops in the Third World, where the unsafe, inhuman conditions and the child labor of our past, still exist. Nike would be a good example of this, if you need one.
Now, you might say, oh yeah, but when there is a democrat in the White House, like that big Lefty Obama, certainly then things are better for the poor and disenfranchised.

Wrong. One might expect that a community organizer like Obama might cut military spending and beef up social programs benefitting the poor. You know, like he talked about when he was first running for president. Not the case. Our current annual military budget is estimated at $ 581 billion. That is more than the rest of the world combined spends on defense. If that seems absolutely insane, it’s because it is.

Imagine what half of that defense budget could do to improve our public schools, provide health care for the poor and middle class and create job training for people who need it the most.
Obama keeps talking about helping veterans, how about bringing back the G.I. Bill, to provide college educations for all veterans who want one.

As Zinn points out in his book, war has been used all along as a huge money maker and as a diversion for the poor and working classes, to keep them from thinking too much about how they are being treated. Lets all rally around the flag and not think too much about the fact that our boss makes hundreds of times what the average worker earns.

And this constant warfare has made us reviled all over the world. I will end this with a passage from A People’s History Of The United States.

Three years before the terrible events of September 11, 2001, a former lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force, Robert Bowman, who had flown 101 combat missions in Vietnam, and then had become a Catholic Bishop, commented on the terrorist bombings of U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. In an article in the National Catholic Reporter he wrote about the roots of terrorism:

We are not hated because we practice democracy, value freedom, or uphold human rights. We are hated because our government denies these things to people in Third World countries whose resources are coveted by multinational corporations. That hatred we have sown has come back to haunt us in the form of terrorism…. Instead of sending our sons and daughters around the world to kill Arabs so we can have the oil under their sand, we should send them to rebuild their infrastructure, supply clean water, and feed starving children…

In short, we should do good instead of evil. Who would try to stop us? Who would hate us? Who would want to bomb us? That is the truth the American people need to hear.

These beads hail from Mali, where women wear them around their waist, to help them hold their shape. Beads are 6x.5mm thick. Many of this style of bead are vintage, but these are newer strands. This is such a great color- and one that I have just seen! It’s a delicious berry-red color. There are HUNDREDS of beads on this 32″+/- strand. So perfect with the current TRIBAL and NEON fashion trends. Temporarily strung on thread, you could wear these beads as-is. Or why not cut them apart and make some vinyl magic of your own?

The Gender Gap Persists, Even Among Hollywood’s Most Rich And Powerful

Female actors in Hollywood are earning less than their male counterparts. On Friday, The Daily Beast released information from the Sony hack which reveals that Jennifer Lawrence received a smaller portion of the back-end compensation for “American Hustle” than her male co-stars, Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner.

But according to a recent graphic released by The Washington Post (via the New York Film Academy), Lawrence is not alone. In the year 2013, the 10 highest earning male actors earned between $ 32 million and $ 75 million dollars, while the 10 highest earning female actors earned between $ 11 million and $ 33 million.

The Washington Post also notes that the charts points to other forms of discrimination faced by women in Hollywood:

The chart also suggests that age is a bigger factor for female actresses: Their median age is 34.8, while the median age for male actors is 46.5 … Part of the pay gap is undoubtedly due to women’s lower representation overall: Less than a third of speaking characters in the top 500 films between 2007 and 2012 were women, and only 10.7 percent of movies featured a balanced cast where half of the characters were female.

Earlier this month, leaked data also revealed a gender gap among Sony executives: of the 17 employees at the company who earn $ 1 million or more per year, only one is a woman.

“What’s not to enjoy about a book full of monstrous egos, unimaginable sums of money, and the punishment of greed and shortsightedness?” Phenomenal reviews and sales greeted the hardcover publication of The Big Rich, New York Times bestselling author Bryan Burrough’s spellbinding chronicle of Texas oil. Weaving together the multigenerational sagas of the industry’s four wealthiest families, Burrough brings to life the men known in their day as the Big Four: Roy Cullen, H. L. Hunt, Clint Murchison, and Sid Richardson, all swaggering Texas oil tycoons who owned sprawling ranches and mingled with presidents and Hollywood stars. Seamlessly charting their collective rise and fall, The Big Rich is a hugely entertaining account that only a writer with Burrough’s abilities-and Texas upbringing-could have written.

His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich, is one of the best-selling books of all time. Hill’s works examined the power of personal beliefs, and the role they play in personal success. “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve” is one of Hill’s hallmark expressions.

Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians


“Crazy Rich Asians” is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season. When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn’t know is that Nick’s family home happens to look like a palace, that she’ll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia’s most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back. Initiated into a world of dynastic splendor beyond imagination, Rachel meets Astrid, the It Girl of Singapore society; Eddie, whose family practically lives in the pages of the Hong Kong socialite magazines; and Eleanor, Nick’s formidable mother, a woman who has very strong feelings about who her son should–and should not–marry. Uproarious, addictive, and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, “Crazy Rich Asians” is an insider’s look at the Asian JetSet; a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money; between Overseas Chinese and Mainland Chinese; and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love, and gloriously, “crazily” rich.
