The Big Question About Black Widow in Avengers: Endgame

Warning: This story contains FULL SPOILERS for Avengers: Endgame!

In order for the Avengers to secure all of the Infinity Stones to complete their “Time Heist,” it was inevitable that one of them would have to trade their life for the Soul Stone on Vormir, and it was Black Widow who chose to pay that price. In a sacrificial act to save her friends and restore the Vanished, Black Widow exchanged her soul so Hawkeye could return to the present with the Soul Stone and reunite with his family once they were resurrected.

But is that really the end of her story, especially considering there’s a Black Widow movie currently in the works? Let’s break it down.

Carine Roitfeld, CR Studio Curate Latest Veuve Clicquot Widow Series

WIDOW DRESSING: Carine Roitfeld and her content team at CR Studio will curate the third Veuve Clicquot Widow Series in London in October. Roitfeld follows Nick Knight, who worked on the inaugural series, and FKA Twigs who oversaw last year’s creative and cultural event.
The series honors the house’s founder Madame Clicquot, who was widowed in October 1805. She took on her late husband’s Champagne business and pioneered several industry innovations. Each year, the series taps a creative type who has “an unfulfilled desire or passion project” they want to bring to life.
“I’m a storyteller, that’s my job as an editor and stylist. This opportunity is completely different, and now my team at CR Studio and I have the opportunity to tell a story with the viewer actually experiencing the story as we tell it,” Roitfeld said. “It’s not a party, it’s a truly immersive experience, a different way of thinking.”
Jean-Marc Gallot, president of Maison Veuve Clicquot, said the house wanted Roitfeld for her “artistic yet audacious aesthetic” and fashion leadership over the decades. “We welcome another empowering woman into the house of Veuve Clicquot.”
Last year, FKA Twigs let her imagination run wild and curated “Rooms,” an immersive experience featuring 12

Shame On President Trump For Exploiting A Widow

The most emotionally charged moment of President Donald Trump’s speech to Congress on Tuesday belonged to Carryn Owens, the wife of Chief Petty Officer William (Ryan) Owens, the Navy SEAL killed in a commando raid that Trump authorized in January. The bi-partisan standing ovation that she drew lasted for several minutes as the widowed mother of three wept openly and, with eyes turned toward heaven, mouthed the words “I love you” to her dead husband.

Her husband’s sacrifice and her reaction broke through the partisan rancor that plagues Washington ― as well it should have.

But as a recent widow myself, I cringed on her behalf. By inviting her there, Trump exploited her and her husband’s death to score political points and to insulate himself from criticism about the raid in Yemen. Just earlier in the day, Trump ― the commander-in-chief ― shifted responsibility for the tragedy to the military. “They lost Ryan,” said the President, straight out of the blame-someone-else-on-the-playground handbook. Bill Owens, Ryan’s father, would have none of it. He has called for a full investigation into his son’s death and flat-out accused Trump of using the tragedy for political gain. 

But putting politics aside, the rawness of Ms. Owens’ loss caused that now-familiar knot in my widow’s gut to pull tighter. I recognize grief when I see it and hers was on full display in front of Congress, America and the rest of the world.

It was genuine, authentic, and very, very real. What wasn’t any of those things was the reason why she was there in the first place.

Why was she invited to watch the speech from the First Lady’s box, seated next to First Daughter Ivanka, whose polished coolness stood in stark contrast with the widow’s struggle to stay in control? Shouldn’t the first step in honoring her husband and recognizing her loss have been respecting her enough to not turn her into a spectacle?

I know that presidents since Ronald Reagan have given speeches where they spotlight individuals to make a point, vignette-style. But Carryn Owens was used, paraded out to deflect attention from the man who some hold responsible for her widowhood. It was a move Trump has used in the past. Remember when he lined up women who had accused Bill Clinton of rape after the “I grab their pussies” audio surfaced? As HuffPost’s Jessica Samakow pointed out at the time, Trump doesn’t care a whit about the sexual assault of women. And I’d be highly suspect that he cares a whit about Carryn Owens or her suffering. 

What he did to Carryn Owens was gross and manipulative. There is such a thing as a Widow’s Card ― when the inherent sympathies directed toward widows are used for someone’s gain. And while Owens may not have played that card, the President played it for her.

I know this because I have spent the past eight weeks watching how people respond to the news that my husband died. They want to show me kindness, give me things, help me. It’s human nature perhaps. I’ve seen it happen repeatedly. My plumber went out and bought me my very own toilet snake ― gratis, because you know, I’m a widow now. The mobile car detailing guy quoted me a price, but dropped it when he heard this was my dead husband’s car that I’m getting ready to sell. 

Nice gestures, yes, but quite honestly it makes my skin crawl a little. I’m not comfortable being on the receiving end of pity, and that’s what the Widow’s Card buys you. In the case of Carryn Owens, her card bought a round of applause born from sympathy. But it also bought praise for a man who cares very little for any human life outside of his own.

Victorian England is a man’s world. And no one knows this better than Phillipa Jones who must fight society’s conventions along with chauvinistic ship captains and a greedy yet undeniably handsome Viscount to keep her late husband’s shipping business afloat. Unfortunately, one moment of weakness and a case of mistaken identities will place her in a compromising position, which will see everything she’s worked for come to ruins including her reputation. TO MY READER: This is Koko’s first attempt at writing an historical erotic romance and hopefully I’ve allowed you to escape the doldrums of everyday life with my slice of fiction. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Ever since she was a child, Koko Brown has had a love for the written word. So much so, she decided to publish her own newspaper at the tender age of nine. Turning a tidy profit from the very first issue, the publication was quickly put out of business by KoKo’s grade school principal, who didn’t appreciate outside competition. Undaunted, Koko has never strayed too far from her “passion”, whether it was writing for her college’s literary magazine, bringing some “liveliness” to her local newspaper’s obituary page, writing web page content to attract visitors to Florida’s beautiful Space Coast or even trying her hand at erotic fiction. When not writing, this Florida native likes spending time with family and friends, riding her Yamaha 650 Classic, surfing the internet, traveling to exotic locales, thrift store shopping and having great conversations.

How This Widow Is Keeping Her Husband’s Memory Alive For Their Sons (VIDEO)

During the final season of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” Oprah and her team took the show — and one very lucky studio audience — to Australia for the adventure of a lifetime. There was an unprecedented look inside sacred caves, an encounter with some frisky koalas, Hugh Jackman on a zip line… and one particularly unforgettable Aussie couple.

Kristian and Rachel Anderson were college sweethearts living in a suburb of Sydney with their two young boys, Cody and Jakob. Not long before “The Oprah Show” arrived in Australia, Kristian had been diagnosed with liver and bowel cancer, and was literally in the fight of his life. Touched by the couple’s story (which gained attention after Kristian posted a loving video tribute to his wife on YouTube), Oprah had them join her for an episode at the Sydney Opera House and gave them a special surprise.

“We wanted them to spend every ounce of their energy being together and focused on getting well,” Oprah told the Opera House audience, before turning toward the couple. “You shouldn’t worry about the bills… because you will be getting a check for a quarter of a million dollars.”

Sadly, a year after that show, Kristian lost his battle with cancer at age 36. Now, almost three years after his death, Rachel tells “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” how she and their sons have been coping.

“Since we were on ‘The Oprah Show,’ life is… it’s pretty much turned upside down for us,” Rachel says. “In sad ways and good ways.”

With the $ 250,000 gift, the Andersons felt a great sense of relief and gratitude to be able to spend some incredible quality time together. “We booked a Disney cruise, and went to Disney World and Disney Land,” Rachel says, smiling. “[We] had the most magical time as a family.”

The Andersons made the most of their time together, and after Kristian passed, Rachel was devastated. “It was like living in a black hole,” she says quietly. “I remember waking up the first morning after he died. I remember lying there and seeing his wardrobe open and his clothes all there. Just realizing that was it. That was all that we had left. He was gone.”

In the midst of her grief, Rachel focused on her children, though she often struggled when either of her boys reached a childhood milestone. “About two weeks after [Kristian] died, Cody lost his first tooth and I just remember being devastated that Kristian had missed that,” she says. “It was horrible.”

Because Cody and Jakob were young when their father died, Rachel has remained fiercely dedicated to keeping Kristian’s memory alive. “I work very hard to make sure that he’s part of our day, still,” she says.

It’s something Kristian gave thought to as well. Just after he was diagnosed, Kristian started a blog that is now filled with reflections, stories, triumphs and fears. “It was one of his dying wishes that we would get his blog published so that we had something tangible for the children to have growing up,” Rachel says, holding up a book. “I now have this that the boys can sit down and read, and they can find out exactly how Daddy felt at every, single point in his journey.”

As for Rachel, the mother of two has begun a new chapter in her own journey. During an appearance she made on New Zealand television discussing the book, a man named Richard saw her and reached out. The two began communicating and, eventually, dating.

“He turned out to be the most incredible man,” Rachel says. “In January of this year, we got married. He has a daughter that’s in between the ages of my children, so between us, we have a 5-year-old, a 6-year-old and a 7-year-old.”

Cody and Jakob enjoy their stepdad. “The boys think the world of Richard. He’s a big kid, really,” Rachel says. “He’s just fantastic.”

As the children continue to grow and change each day, Rachel believes Kristian is proud and happy to see their lives continue with love and joy. “I honestly do think that Kristian is watching over us,” she says. “I honestly do think he gets these windows into our lives and gets to see what’s happening. [He’s] taking care of us.”

“Oprah: Where Are They Now?” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.

The Sari Shop Widow

The Sari Shop Widow

Pungent curry. sweet fried onions. incense. colorful beads. lush fabrics. Shobhan Bantwal’s compelling new novel is set on the streets of Edison, New Jersey’s Little India, where a young businesswoman rediscovers the magic of love and family. Since becoming a widow at age twenty-seven, Anjali Kapadia has devoted herself to transforming her parents’ sari shop into a chic boutique, brimming with exquisite jewelry and clothing. Now, ten years later, it stands out like a proud maharani amid Edison’s bustling Little India. But when Anjali learns the shop is on the brink of bankruptcy, she feels her world unraveling. To the rescue comes Anjali’s wealthy, dictatorial Uncle Jeevan and his business partner, Rishi Shah-a mysterious Londoner, complete with British accent, cool gray eyes, and skin so fair it makes it hard to believe he’s Indian. Rishi’s cool, foreign demeanor triggers distrust in Anjali and her mother. But for Anjali, he also stirs something else, a powerful attraction she hasn’t felt in a decade. And the feeling is mutual. Love disappointed Anjali once before and she’s vowed to live without it-though Rishi is slowly melting her resolve and, as the shop regains its footing, gaining her trust. But when a secret from Rishi’s past is revealed, Anjali must turn to her family and her strong cultural upbringing to guide her in finding the truth. Praise for Shobhan Bantwal and her novels. “Compelling and memorable.” -Mary Jo Putney on The Forbidden Daughter “Vivid, rich. expertly portrays a young woman caught between love and duty, hope and despair.” -Anjali Banerjee on The Dowry Bride “Splendidly depicts passion, brutality, and cultures in conflict.”-Dorothy Garlock on The Dowry Bride”The Dowry Bride is an eye-opener to the challenges many Indian women face in a culture few foreigners comprehend., 4 stars on The Dowry Bride “A beautifully written book.
