Victoria Beckham Slams Divorce Rumors as She Poses with David Beckham: ‘We’re Stronger Together’

Victoria Beckham isn’t concerned about the constant divorce rumors that plague her marriage.

The fashion designer and former singer appears on the latest cover of British Vogue along with husband David Beckham and their four kids: daughter Harper Seven, 7, and sons Cruz David, 13, Romeo James, 16, and Brooklyn Joseph, 19.

“People have been making things up about our relationship for 20 years, so David and I are pretty used to ignoring the nonsense and just carrying on as normal,” she said. “But these things have a wider effect on the people around us, and that’s unfair.”

Victoria and David married in July 1999 with four-month-old Brooklyn serving as ring bearer. They last faced split rumors earlier this summer, which their spokesperson quickly denied.

“We both realize that we are stronger together than we are as individuals,” Victoria continued. “Would either of us be in the position that we are in now had we not met and been together all those years ago? It’s all about the family unit. We are much stronger the six of us, than we would be if we were individuals. We respect that family bond and that is key.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Official Wedding Portraits Were Just Released!

Picture perfect!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are celebrating the end of their royal wedding weekend with the release of their official wedding portraits on Monday.

Taken in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle after the royal couple’s magical carriage procession, the portraits were shot by fashion photographer, Alexi Lubomirski, who took the couple’s dreamy engagement photos at Frogmore House in Windsor late last year.

The first photo is an epic gathering of the entire royal family (minus 4-week-old Prince Louis, who stayed home at the palace!), the little bridal party and Meghan’s proud mother, Doria Ragland.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding on Saturday. They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and also all those who watched the wedding on television across the U.K., Commonwealth, and around the world,” a Kensington Palace spokesperson said.

“Their Royal Highnesses are delighted with these official portraits taken by Alexi Lubomirski and are happy to be able to share them today. They would also like to say thank you for all of the generous messages of support they have received.”

Also featured in the photo set is a picture of just Harry and Meghan with their adorable page boys and bridesmaids. Led by the couple’s niece and nephew, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the eight other children include several of Harry and Meghan’s godchildren and children of their friends: Florence van Cutsem, 3; Remi Litt, 6 and her sister Rylan, 7; Ivy Mulroney, 4; Zalie Warren, 2; Jasper Dyer, 6; and twins Brian and John Mulroney, 7.

The bride and groom themselves posed for a romantic black-and-white photo featuring just the two of them. Taken just moments after they tied the knot, the love and happiness they felt on the day is evident on their smiling faces.

“It has been an incredible honor and privilege to document The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s inspiring journey of love, hope and family; from the engagement photos, all the way through to the official wedding and family portraits on Saturday,” Lubomirski said in a statement. “This has been a beautiful chapter in my career and life, that I will happily never forget.”

At the 2011 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the official portraits of the couple and the bridal party were taken by Hugo Burnand. Burnand was also on hand to shoot the official pictures for the wedding of Prince Charles to Camilla Parker-Bowles six years earlier.

Rachel Lindsay & Bryan Abasolo on Their Interracial Relationship: ‘Love Is Blind — We’re Just a Man & Woman in Love’

 

Even before her journey on The Bachelorette began, Rachel Lindsay made a personal commitment to stay true to her heart.

As the first black lead in Bachelor Nation history, Lindsay admittedly felt the pressure to choose a black man from her pool of contestants.

“It wasn’t always easy. It wasn’t. But I had to not let the pressure get to me,” Lindsay, 32, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “I had to rise above it to find my happy ending at the end of all of this.”

“I knew that people would be watching myself in this role for the first time, and there would be people who were positive and people who were negative, and I would feel pressure from certain audiences that would say you ‘had to pick a black man.’ And then I would have other audiences that didn’t care about that,” Lindsay shares.

“But for me, before I said yes to being the Bachelorette I had to get over . I had to realize that not everyone was going to be for me when it came to the decisions that I make. Not everyone was going to be happy about my decisions, but I needed to be selfish in this journey and find the one who was perfect for me,” Lindsay explains. “I couldn’t make a decision based on anyone else because I’m the one who’s going to have to live with it.”

And new fiancé Bryan Abasolo couldn’t be prouder of how the Dallas-born lawyer portrayed herself on the show. “Such strength, class and grace,” says Abasolo, who got down on one knee and proposed to Lindsay on Monday night’s season 13 finale.

For more on Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay’s engagement to Bryan Abasolo, including their thoughts on their big debut and plan for the future, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

Reflecting on their romance, the newly engaged couple says that race never played a factor in them falling in love.

“Love is blind,” says Miami-based chiropractor Abasolo.

“I’m not going to pick somebody because they look a certain way. I could’ve done that without doing the show. I really put my all in this because I was trying to find that one for me. I was trying to find my person — the person who I want to spend the rest of my life with — and I can’t let color dictate that,” says Lindsay. ”

“I can’t be blindsided by the fact that I have to choose this person because they look the same way that I do. That’s not fair. That’s not what love is about. That doesn’t define love. It’s not my definition of love,” she continues. “My definition of love is sitting right next to me. So it was really important for me to not do that. Everything else was background noise and I was just zeroed in on finding that person for me.”

Now that the couple no longer has to keep their engagement under wraps, and will now be able spend time with one another in public, they realize their lives will be propelled into spotlight.

Still, they’re not intimidated about being in a high-profile interracial relationship — or any criticism that may result from others’ biases.

“Honestly, we don’t even think about it or talk about it. I mean, we’re just a man and a woman in love. We just want to enjoy life,” Abasolo shares. “I just think we’re two mature adults, that we can handle anything moving forward. Communication is a big key.”

Adds Lindsay, “I think we’re both strong enough to rise above whatever criticism we may face by being an interracial couple. But between the two of us, we had those tough questions during the season. I know that he is capable of handling it, as am I. For us, we just love each other.”

George Clooney and Rande Gerber Were ‘Shocked’ at Offer to Sell Casamigos Tequila for $1 Billion

Rande Gerber says he and his business partner George Clooney were stunned when they were offered a whopping $ 1 billion to sell the tequila company they started just four years ago — and never expected it to gain so much popularity.

“We never planned on starting a tequila company. You know, we made Casamigos just for us to drink,” Gerber said during a phone interview with Good Morning America on Thursday. “Once we did launch the company, we thought, ‘Hey, if we could see a bottle or two, great. If not, at least we still get to drink our own tequila.’”

He added: “So, four years later when we’re offered a billion dollars to sell the company, yeah, we were kind of shocked.”

In a statement to PEOPLE on Wednesday, Clooney confirmed that he, Gerber and real estate mogul Mike Meldman will sell the alcohol brand to the European beverage company Diageo for the large sum.

Diageo announced the news in a press release which reveals that the deal is expected to close in the second half of calendar 2017. Officials said that the deal could stand to bring in $ 10 million, in addition to the $ 1 billion.

The celebrity pals started Casamigos in 2013 “by accident” after failing to find the perfect tequila on vacation in Mexico.

From Coinage: Why Does Chardonnay Cost So Much?

“I think the most important thing for us though is, we really love what we do, and we love what we made and we want to keep drinking it and keep the team together,” Gerber continued, adding that the trio will continue to run the company.

“George will keep his role … working on the marketing with me,” he said. “The great thing is we do everything in house so even though we were bought by Diageo … we’ll remain a standalone company. We’ll operate it as we have since day one.”

Much like everything else, Gerber said the taste of the tequila will remain the same and that they will “definitely not” change the formula.

Songs That Were Written in Honor of Mothers

In honor of Mother’s Day, we’re looking back at 12 unforgettable musical tributes from daughters and sons to the women who raised them.

Listen to the heartwarming and heart-wrenching tracks that will definitely inspire you to call your own mom.

1. Kanye West: “Hey Mama”

The rapper‘s adoring tribute to mom Donda West was included on his 2005 record Late Registration. Donda liked the song so much that she even reportedly used it as her ringtone.

A week after her 2007 death, West broke down in tears while attempting to introduce the track at a Paris concert.

2. Carrie Underwood: “Mama’s Song”

Underwood co-wrote the 2010 Play On song about the evolving relationship between mothers and daughters. ” ‘Mama’s Song’ definitely reflects my mom and I’s relationship. Hopefully a lot of moms and daughters can relate to this too,” the singer said in an interview on her YouTube channel. Underwood’s husband Mike Fisher and her mother, Carole Underwood, both appeared in the music video.

3. Taylor Swift: “The Best Day”

” ‘The Best Day’ is a song that I wrote without telling my mom,” Swift told Taste of Country of her 2008 Fearless track. “I wrote it in the summertime, and I recorded it secretly, too. I had this idea that I wanted to play it for her for Christmas. So when I got the track I synced up all of these home videos from when I was a little kid to go along with the song like a music video, and played it for her on Christmas Eve and she was crying her eyes out.”

4. Beyoncé: “Ring Off”

In 2014’s “Ring Off,” Beyoncé celebrates mom Tina Lawson‘s newfound independence following her divorce from Mathew Knowles. The song was included on the deluxe release of her self-titled album.

5. Blake Shelton: “The Baby”

” ‘The Baby’ is based on the true story of Michael White and the relationship he had with his mother. He wrote the song ,” Shelton told CMT of his 2003 tear-jerker hit. “As far as my life is concerned, it is true up until the part where the mother passes away. I am the baby of the family, and I moved away when I was 17, and I was away from home when I turned 21, and up until now it has paralleled my life.”

“But the one thing that it teaches me, and hopefully everyone who hears the song, is not to take your family for granted, and try to at least stay in touch with them,” he added.

6. Madonna: “Promise to Try”

The music icon co-wrote the somber Like a Prayer ballad about her mother Madonna Louis Ciccone, who died of breast cancer when the star was five. In her 1991 Rockumentary Madonna: Truth of Dare, “Promise to Try” plays as she visits her mother’s grave in Detroit.

7. Drake: “You & The 6”

Drake directly addresses mom Sandi Graham in “You & The 6,” off his 2015 album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. “The 6” refers to his hometown of Toronto.

8. Chance The Rapper: “Hey Ma”

“Hey Ma” gives Chance the opportunity to thank his own mother, Lisa Bennet, for surviving his adolescent misbehavior. The song comes off of the rapper’s 2012 mixtape 10 Day, which is named after the 10-day high school suspension during which he began working on the collection.

9. The Beatles: “Julia”

The White Album song was named after John Lennon’s mother, Julia Lennon, who died in a traffic accident when he was 17. The singer-songwriter’s 1970 track, “Mother,” also deals with his and Julia’s complicated relationship.

10. Mac Miller: “I’ll Be There”

Miller included an ode to his mother on 2011’s Best Day Ever. “My mom and I have been through a lot of s—. Me taking it upon myself to follow this dream, it caused a lot of problems with me and my mom on our day-to-day relationship. I feel like my mom is one of the best moms ever — how I’m sure everyone else feels. So I wanted to make a song speaking on that,” he said of “I’ll Be There,” he said, according to Genius.

11. Billy Joel: “Rosalinda’s Eye’s”

Joel‘s mother, Rosalind Nyman Joel, and their family history inspired this 52nd Street tune. Rosalind died in 2014 at 92 years old.

12. Bruce Springsteen: “The Wish”

Springsteen wrote “The Wish” about mom Adele Ann Springsteen. “Well tonight I’m takin’s requests here in the kitchen/ This one’s for you, Ma, let me come right out and say it,” he sings.

Spring doesn’t last long in New York City, but with it comes the Tribeca Film Festival. Kicking off Wednesday and continuing through April 30, this year marks the 16th iteration of Robert De Niro and producer Jane Rosenthal’s gala, founded to help revive downtown Manhattan after 9/11.

Tribeca’s television and virtual-reality lineups are a cut above most other festivals.

Additionally, the “Godfather” and “Reservoir Dogs” casts will reunite for anniversary retrospectives, and a handful of fascinating duos will sit down to discuss their craft, including Bruce Springsteen and Tom Hanks, Noah Baumbach and Dustin Hoffman, Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, and Barbra Streisand and Robert Rodriguez

Along the way, The Huffington Post will provide ongoing coverage of Tribeca’s buzziest movies, shows and events.

Carrie Fisher’s Daughter Wore A Princess Leia Tribute Dress And We’re Not Crying, You’re Crying

It’s not the “same jacket,” but it is a similar dress.

Actress Billie Lourd wore a custom mini version of her mom Carrie Fisher’s iconic Princess Leia gown Thursday at Star Wars Celebration, a four-day festival in Orlando dedicated to all things from a galaxy far, far away. 

Lourd collaborated with Tom Ford to design the chalk-colored dress with kimono sleeves, and it was a timely tribute: The event marked Lourd’s first public appearance since Fisher’s death in December

Lourd was on hand to help George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy debut a new video tribute to Fisher that premiered on the first day of the festival. She delivered a heartfelt speech to the crowd, recalling her mother’s love of the film and its dedicated fans.

“My mom, like Leia, wasn’t ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable, but not me and not you,” she said. “That was why she loved you, because you accepted and embraced all of her.” 

Lourd wrote on Instagram that she felt “the ultimate strength of the force from all the incredible fans at #starwarscelebration after our tribute to my #momby.”  

The force lives on through Lourd and her touching tributes ― spoken and sartorial.

We’re One Step Closer To Wearing Clothing Made From Poop

Man, you’re never going to believe what may soon be used to make clothes.

It’s a fabric made from cow poop. 

On April 6, the H&M Foundation tapped five fashion innovators for its Global Change Award, a roughly $ 1.06 million prize celebrating sustainability through “game-changing ideas that can help reinvent the entire industry.” 

One of those winners, Dutch artist and entrepreneur Jalila Essaidi, makes a textile jokingly referred to as “manure couture.” And yes, it’s exactly what you think it is. 

Essaidi’s revolutionary fabric, Mestic, is made from the cellulose found in the dry components of cow manure. The wet materials in cow manure also contain acids necessary “to transform the cellulose into a new material,” she explained in a 2016 interview, meaning there’s even less waste of waste. 

Essaidi explains on her website that the fabric serves as a way to reduce phosphate and nitrogen, two chemicals found in manure that harm the environment and, as of 2016, were in surplus in The Netherlands.

Refinery29 reports that the material itself does not smell like poop, and garments shown in a 2016 fashion show using Mestic really do look luxurious and wearable. 

Essaidi is also the creator of Bulletproof Skin, “a project that achieved bioengineered bulletproof human skin reinforced with synthetic spider silk.”

In other words, she’s a total badass. 

The prize money was awarded to “speed up the shift to a circular waste-free fashion industry,” according to a press release, and winners will participate in a year-long innovation accelerator to help them develop their ideas or products and connect them within the fashion industry. 

While it remains to be seen how close to market Mestic will be after the year-long accelerator program, Essaidi’s intentions are clear. “I just want people to give a shit about the planet,” she said at the award ceremony in Stockholm Thursday. 

While Mestic isn’t guaranteed to be sold at H&M or the company’s other retail businesses, a spokesperson told The Huffington Post that the point of the project is “to spur ideas that could have the potential to create a more sustainable fashion future,” adding, “Hopefully, they will be able to have an impact on the fashion industry as a whole.”

The future of fashion looks crappy, and we’re all for it.

DJ Duo Claim They Were Handcuffed and ‘Dragged Off Stage’ for Telling Frat Party ‘Put Yo Hands Up’

A DJ duo claim that they were handcuffed and dragged off stage at a University of Alabama frat party after telling revelers to “put yo’ hands up” during their performance.

Vicetone, real names Ruben Den Boer and Victor Pool, tweeted, “So I just got handcuffed and dragged off stage at this college party for ‘inciting a riot’ by yelling something like ‘put yo hands up.’ ”

The Dutch duo followed up the tweet at 1:15 a.m. Saturday by saying, “Obviously got released cause I did nothing wrong – also huge shoutout to University of Alabama for throwing down tonight.”

A video of the Tuscaloosa party posted on Twitter shows one of the duo on stage in a hospital gown drinking 4 Loko, which is a combination of malt liquor and caffeine.

A University of Alabama police officer told PEOPLE that neither Den Boer nor Pool were arrested, but said officers were called to the party for “crowd control.” She referred further questions to the university’s media relations department, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

One student tweeted an apology that police intervened at the show, “Sorry you guys had to go through that crap here. You guys were lit.”

It’s not clear whether anyone was arrested at the party.

Couples Were Asked If They’d Have A Threesome. Here’s What They Said

Like anything sex-related, you’ll never know if your partner is into threesomes unless you ask. 

In the video above, the team over at WatchCut got the conversation started, asking couples if they’d ever be down to share their partner in bed. Some of the pairs have already done it.

“We don’t do it with people we know,” one boyfriend explains. “No kissing! And no spending the night ― [it’s] a one and done kind of deal.” 

Some couples aren’t exactly on the same page.

“My wife is for me; I don’t want to share or be part of somebody else’s fantasy,” one husband says. “I’m just not that into that.” 

His wife, on the other hand, seems a bit curious about the possibility. 

“I don’t know about now but I probably would have before?” she says. “I don’t know! I’d definitely have to be drunk.”

We’re Already Getting A Miniseries About The 2016 Election

We are 26 days into Donald Trump’s presidency, and there’s already a miniseries about the 2016 election on the horizon.

That’s right, you can soon channel your crippling panic about America’s federal horror show via an eight- to 10-hour drama from “Zero Dark Thirty” scribe Mark Boal and producer Megan Ellison, according to Deadline. Boal, who won an Oscar for writing “The Hurt Locker,” is expected to make his directorial debut and pen part of the series.

Boal and Ellison will work with Hugo Lindgren, the former New York Times and Hollywood Reporter editor who in 2014 launched Page 1, a company that develops movies and TV series based on recent news stories. Lindgren is reportedly compiling a team of investigative journalists in New York and Washington, D.C., to work on the project. 

Whether or not a few months provides enough distance to process the nutty election we just endured is yet to be seen. It seems like this endeavor most closely resembles Game Change, the meticulously reported behind-the-scenes account of the 2008 election. Game Change started as a 2010 book and became an Emmy-winning HBO movie in 2012. 

There’s no network attached to Boal and Ellison’s series yet. Showtime has already contributed to the election postmortem with “Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time,” a documentary that aired Feb. 3. PBS also dedicated a January episode of “Frontline” to chronicling how the hell Trump made it all the way to the White House. It’s almost like the whole thing is so dreadful that no one can think of anything else! Fire up your Hillary Clinton casting wish list now.

Pink Puts Son Jameson Down When Daughter Willow Walks in the Room: She’s ‘a Little Weepy … We’re Working on It’

Is there a bit of sibling rivalry in Pink‘s household?

The 37-year-old singer, who recently welcomed her son Jameson Moon, opens up about life with two children during Tuesday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“He’s delicious,” Pink says of her 3-week-old baby boy during a phone call with DeGeneres.

And although the family is enjoying the new baby, Pink says she’s determined to make sure her 5-year-old daughter Willow Sage never feels left out.

“I literally put Jameson down when she walks in the room,” Pink tells the host. “ a little weepy these days so we’re working it out.”

The “Raise Your Glass” singer says she is putting forth her best efforts when it comes to keeping the peace between the brother-sister duo. She even threw Willow a “big sister party” in the wake of Jameson’s arrival.

“Congrats Big Sis! #bigsisterparty,” Pink captioned a photo of herself, a sleeping Jameson and a smiling Willow in front of a cluster of balloons.

Pink and Carey Hart Welcome Second Child Jameson Moon

Pink and her husband Carey Hart welcomed Jameson on Monday, Dec. 26. The singer broke the news via social media two days later.

Willow seemed to be welcoming the new baby just fine, as she was shown in an Instagram photo sporting a wide grin as she held her new brother. And she even spent time gearing up for the little boy’s arrival.

“Dry Runs,” Pink wrote alongside an Instagram photo of Willow diapering a baby doll.

If People Were Honest At New Year’s Eve Parties

There are two kinds of people in the world: Those of us who look forward to New Year’s Eve and those who know the night will inevitably end in disappointment. 

If you fall into the latter camp, you’ll appreciate the College Humor video above. In the sketch, guests wander around a house party and say exactly what’s on their mind. 

“I had to come to this party because everything I actually wanted to do was way too expensive,” one guest explains to the host as he walks in. 

“Also, you’re out of alcohol and it’s only 10 p.m.,” another dude says to her. “Sounds like your problem!” 

Yeah, we’re staying home this year.

SHOPPING DEALS UPDATE:


7 ‘If We’re Not Married By…’ Pacts That Actually Ended In Marriage

In “How I Met Your Mother,” Ted and Robin make an agreement that if they’re still single at 40, they’ll just marry each other. 

Spoiler alert: They do eventually end up together (with a whole lot of ups and downs in between). But to our surprise, this kind of thing isn’t just a pop culture trope; it happens in real life too.

Read on for seven stories of real couples who made similar “if we’re not married by…” pacts and actually ended up together. Some didn’t wait until the agreed-upon age, but that doesn’t make their love stories any less sweet. 

1. We made the pact as a joke in high school. At 30, we tied the knot.

“Brittany and I were in each other’s lives longer than my memory will go back. We were always good friends, but got really close in middle school and high school. Sometime in high school we started joking that if we were both single at 30, then we would get married. At 24 we started hanging out a lot. By 25 we were in an official relationship. And on our 30th birthday (yes, we share that) we were married. We didn’t force anything because of the pact we made. It all happened as it was supposed to. We celebrated our first ‘birthiversary’ earlier this month, and we are still madly in love!” ― Byron 

2. After some heart break, we made the marriage pact in jest. Now we’re 30 and planning a wedding.

“Rey and I met online and became good friends when we were both 23, and since we lived 2000 miles apart, it was only a friendship. After each of us had a few bad relationships and shared mutual heartaches, we jokingly made our pact; If by 30, if we were still single, I’d take the leap of faith, move across country and we would date for a year or two before getting married. We both tried dating others, but by 28, we reconnected through social media. Our friendship grew and when the pact was mentioned again, we both embraced it. I moved to Texas in 2014, and now at 30, we are happily engaged and planning a wedding for the spring of 2018.” ― Heather W.

3. We decided on age 33, but destiny couldn’t wait that long.

“Jason and I met in high school in 1996 (we were 17) and ended up going to senior prom together since neither of us had dates. We decided that we were such good friends that if we weren’t married to other people in 2011 by the time we turned 33 (our birthdays are five days apart) that we’d marry each other. Fast forward to 1997 when we had our first child before getting married on Valentine’s Day in 2000. We were both so scared of finding ‘the one’ so young that we fought it, but fate had plans for us and they couldn’t wait until 2011! We now have two children, 16 years of marriage and are looking forward to old age together. Even when we are angry with each other, we can find a laugh because our friendship is so strong. It’s pretty damn awesome.” ― Dawn-Maia S.

4. We agreed that if we were single at 30, we’d get together. At 34, we were married.

“I first met Burnill in fourth grade and didn’t like him one bit. When we were 13 we met again at a skating rink while I was on a date with his friend and he was on a blind date with my friend. We eventually started spending time together, and we became a couple at 16. We broke up and lost touch for about a year after, and ran into each other again when we were 18. That’s when we made our pact that if we weren’t both married at 30 then we would get married. After this I didn’t see him for about nine years until he found me on Facebook. At the time I was married and had two kids. About six years later, I was single and he contacted me again via Facebook. We got married at 34 and have one beautiful little boy together, along with my two older children.” ― Rae M.

5. We started out as best friends with an “if we’re still single at 30…” agreement. Six months later, we were husband and wife. 

“My best friend of 10 years said to me one day in a group conversation that if we weren’t with anyone by the time she was 30 (she was 25 at the time) that we would have to be together. As beautiful as she was/is, I never made a move because I used to date her best friend, so I thought the ‘girl code’ would halt my advances. Sure enough, once she said that, I was like, ‘Hold up, she’s possibly into me?!’ So I made the move! Six months after that conversation, we got married. It was a fairly easy transition. Currently married for three years with two children. I’m loving every moment of it.”― Korderius D.

6. We made the pact in college. Two years later we were married ― long before age 40.

“Sarah and I became best friends after working as EMTs on our college ambulance service. We were never single at the same time, so when I was 20 and she was 22 we made a pact to get married when I was 40 if we were both single. I made it to age 22 before asking her to marry me. Our wedding was in 2013 and it was a ton of fun ― she’s a private pilot and I’m in the Air Force so we had a formation flight before exchanging vows on the taxiway at the small airport where she learned to fly.” ― Ahmed H.

7. We agreed to be each other’s backup spouse if we weren’t married by 30. Just a few years later, we got married. 

“I met Sam in 2010 during our freshman year of college. At the time we were both seeing other people, but we became very good friends very quickly mostly because of our mutual interest in self deprecation. Sometime that year we were talking about the inevitability of our current partners giving up on us and decided we should probably have some sort of contingency plan so we didn’t die miserable and alone. We decided if we were both single when we were 30, we would give up on love and resign ourselves to lives of senseless banter. She and I were 18 and 19, respectively. We decided we did actually love each other, so we moved our timetable up a bit and got married in April of 2013.” ― Ethan W.

We’re Still Reeling After ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ Pulled A ‘Game Of Thrones’ Thursday Night

We hope you’re sitting down. 

If you’d lost interest in “How To Get Away With Murder” over the last season or two amid the spinning cheerleaders, dizzying flashbacks, flash forwards and those incestuous siblings who ruined Season 2, we forgive you. Things got pretty convoluted there.

But the ABC drama delivered one of its finest hours on Thursday night when it was finally revealed who was under the sheet and found dead in the fire that destroyed Annalise Keating’s home. 

SPOILER ALERT: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the midseason finale of “HTGAWM” titled “Who’s Dead?”

The tragic life of law student Wes Gibbins (Alfred Enoch) was cut short in Thursday night’s episode when his half-burned body was found in the fire during the closing moments of the midseason finale. No, seriously. Like Two-Face-Harvey-Dent-style kind of burned. 

This marks the most major death on the series to date since Annalise’s husband Sam was killed in Season 1. “HTGAWM” was always twisty, but we never expected them to off one of the main characters in such a gruesome fashion.

The audience was led to believe Wes was alive and well just two episodes before when we flashed forward to him seemingly selling Annalise out to detectives who were hellbent on pinning a murder on the law professor. But “HTGAWM” has always skillfully used time as disorienting plot device and revealed that this exchange occurred before the fire. 

To make matters even worse, we discovered Wes had been killed prior to the explosion, setting up a whole new mystery for the back half of Season 3. 

Oh, puppy, we hardly knew you. 

Fans promptly freaked out on social media to express their varying degrees of shook-ness after Shondaland claimed another beloved character to roam the TV afterlife with McDreamy and the rest of the “Grey’s Anatomy” cast. 

Watch HuffPost’s “Thursday on Friday” at 1 p.m. ET Friday to catch our interview with Alfred Enoch. 

“How To Get Away With Murder” returns Jan. 19.

Were the Beatles Right About Love?

Were the Beatles right? Is love really all you need for a good marriage? Actually that’s a terribly destructive myth.

Love at first sight is a popular notion. Some relationships begin this way and, as luck would have it, blossom into good marriages. But usually when people immediately think that they’ve found him (or her) at last, they’re in fantasy land. They are imagining a wonderful kind of life together with someone they barely know. If they marry impulsively, they may soon find that they have too little in common for a lifelong relationship. Consequently, the chemistry fades away and not much else if left to build on.

Leading with Your Brain

Love is essential for a good lasting relationship. But the brain, as well as the heart, needs to be engaged to keep (what the Righteous Brothers called) “that loving feeling” alive and growing. Singles who want to get married are often advised to make a list of ten qualities they are looking for in a mate. Doing so helps get beyond the “follow your heart” cliché and, instead, to put thought into the process of deciding who is a good prospect for marriage.

I’m a strong believer in friendship first. If you want your future husband to be your best friend as well as your lover, spend enough time with him to learn whether the two of you are likely to be compatible in the long run. You’re more likely to successfully test yourselves as friends if you act more like a friend than as a lover while getting to know him over a period of at least a few months.

What about sex?

Don’t feel bound to anyone’s time table for when the right time is to become sexually involved. You may have heard that men move on to look for someone else if “nothing happens” by the third date.

I think this may be true for men who feel entitled to sex, regardless of whether they want a noncommittal relationship or one that leads to marriage. If your goal is marriage, it makes sense to avoid getting sexually involved before you feel ready to do so both emotionally and mentally. You will want to have as much time as you need to test the relationship as objectively as possible and of course, and you may also be guided by your own value system based on what your religion’s teachings or those from another source.

Distinguishing Sex from Love

Are you able to distinguish between sex and love? Sex gets the hormones flowing, especially, in women, oxytocin, which has been called the “love hormone” — for good reason. It causes women to feel emotionally bonded and can blind them to the other person’s shortcomings that they would probably recognize if they hadn’t compromised their objectivity. By avoiding getting too physically involved too soon, you’ll give yourself time to see if a real friendship develops, and if the potential exists for spending a lifetime together.

It’s a mistake for a marriage minded woman to have sex because she feel pressured to in order to keep a man interested in her. That’s not love and it’s no basis for a friendship that might lead to marriage. A man who doesn’t respect your boundaries is not for you.

Keeping Love Flourishing in Your Marriage

If you are already married to someone who meets your basic requirements for a life partner, be grateful. But that is just the beginning. Love can grow or fade. If you want to keep love alive, it is up to you. You’ve taken the first step by choosing a partner with whom the chemistry is good and who shares enough of your interests, values and lifestyle preferences for the two of you to be compatible over time.

Benefits of Marriage Meetings

A great way to keep your relationship on track is by holding a weekly marriage meeting, which is a short, gentle conversation that cover all the basics, as described step by step in my book, Marriage Meetings for Lasting Love: 30 Minutes a Week to the Relationship You’ve Always Wanted. Marriage meetings foster romance, intimacy, teamwork, and smoother resolution of issues

By regularly investing a small amount of time and energy, you and your spouse can enjoy both love and a true friendship that lasts for a lifetime.

10 Moments From The ‘All That’ Reunion That Were All That

Ready yet? Get set. It’s the “All That” reunion! 

It’s been more than 20 years since the show first aired on Nickelodeon, and even after all that time, ’80s and ’90s kids still have a special place in their hearts for “All That.” Now, thanks to Nickelodeon’s “The Splat,” ’90s shows are coming back every night on TeenNick, so, in honor of that, the show’s cast, Kel Mitchell, Lori Beth Denberg, Danny Tamberelli and Josh Server, all reunited at New York Comic Con on Saturday to make our dreams come true.

Awwww here it goes! Here are 10 of the best moments:

 

1. Kel says he and Kenan have talked about bringing back “Good Burger.”

Mitchell already told The Huffington Post he and Kenan are working together again, but now we have more details. After being asked whether there would be more “All That” or “Good Burger,” Kel said he and Kenan have been talking.

 

2. Kel and the cast turned up. And made a video to prove it.

A video posted by Kel Mitchell (@iamkelmitchell) on

During the panel they talked about old sketches, their favorite characters and even how the got on the show. So, yeah, they turned up.

 

3. We finally know what happened to the Big Ear of Corn.

The big ear of corn was a key cast member on “All That,” perhaps the most important one of all. And now we know Danny takes care of its corn babies.

 

4. About 10 minutes in, Kel says he still loves orange soda.

Josh Server is surprised it took this long to happen.

 

5. Ed (Kel) finally shared the secret of the Good Burger sauce to Lester Oaks Construction Worker (Kenan).

Kenan was at “SNL” but Kel still shared this video of the two discussing the secret sauce.

 

6. Lori Beth Denberg gave us some vital information.

Watch out for that warm apple juice, people.

 

7. The cast says their favorite guest stars were Chris Farley, Aaliyah, TLC, Sinbad and the Spice Girls.

No argument.

 

8. Lori Beth and Danny talked about their slime PTSD.

“You have very little traction with slime in your butt crack,” said Denberg.

 

9. The cast says Chris Farley once wrecked the set so he’d only have to do the scene once.

Josh Server says it was awesome.

 

10. Oh, and this happened:

It is the best day.

16 Next-Generation Lip Glosses We’re Loving Now

Remember back in 2002 when, at any given moment, you had at least four different tubes of sticky, gloppy, blindingly shiny lip gloss nestled in your Dooney & Bourke purse, right next to your Sidekick phone?

But now’s the time to forget everything you know about lip gloss—and everything Paris Hilton ever said, for that matter. The new crop of formulas deliver shine, tint, and moisture in a whole new (way less sticky) way.

If The U.N. Global Goals Were A Spotify Playlist

The United Nations approved of a list of 17 Sustainable Development Goals aimed at tackling poverty, climate change and other issues. And now we’ve all got our work cut out for us. 

As Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated, the SDGs are a “to-do list for people and planet, and a blueprint for success.

If the SDGs seem a bit daunting, you’re not alone. So we at HuffPost Impact have developed an easy explainer for each SDG — as told by a Spotify playlist. Check it out below!  

 

If The U.N. Sustainable Development Goals Were A Spotify Playlist

GOAL 1: NO POVERTY

“Hands” by Jewel

Eradicating poverty, which is currently defined as people living on less than $ 1.25 a day, in all forms, everywhere. 

 

GOAL 2: ZERO HUNGER

This Theory Perfectly Explains Why ‘The Hobbit’ Movies Were So Bad

Look, some of us liked “The Hobbit” trilogy. They’re not the perfect movies, but it’s a perfect adventure. Oh, and there’s a dragon who’s a total baller.

Other people, however, didn’t really appreciate the films. In fact, they really hated them.

And that’s how frenemies are made.

The criticism has been that the movies were overly exaggerated, there was too much CGI and it didn’t need to be stretched into a trilogy. Now, a fan theory suggests the films were actually meant to be a little ridiculous and needlessly drawn out.

The Theory: “The Hobbit” films were bloated with CGI and long-winded because they represent Bilbo’s own exaggerated retellings of his adventure.

Redditor Questionbdp posed the idea as “internal justification” for why the movies were a “disappointment,” and it actually makes sense. The Redditor explains:

What Bilbo actually experienced during his adventure with the Dwarves was probably far less significant and monumental than the movies make it out to be, because the movies show how Bilbo retells his adventures, not how he actually lived them.

The theory goes on to say Bilbo probably felt bummed after he returned from his adventure to find all the other Hobbits didn’t care and were selling off all his stuff. (You nasty Hobbitses!) Because of this, he makes his story larger than life and “events which only filled a small book turned into three separate movies.”

Commenters called the theory “brilliant,” and one even joked, “Lol, Peter Jackson, is that you?”

Speaking of Jackson, even he says “The Hobbit” movies were meant to be a different tone than “Lord of the Rings,” but could this be the reason why?

In J. R. R. Tolkien‘s original stories, Bilbo authors his own memoir, There and Back Again, so it’s entirely possible that he embellished a bit. The dude was pretty good at making stuff up when explaining how he escaped the Goblin tunnels to his Dwarf bros, after all. And how else would you explain Legolas running up a crumbling tower?

Ugh … #SMH.

Jackson said he doesn’t have regrets when it comes to the films, so we’re thinking he either completely missed that Legolas scene, or perhaps there’s a bigger plan at work.

Please let there be a bigger plan at work.
