Aubrey O’Day Accuses Pauly D of Abuse and ‘Wishes Him Dead’ on Marriage Boot Camp

It is appears that Aubrey O’Day wants Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio out of her life — for good.

“Pauly, you can just communicate with me. You don’t have to make like little side jabs,” O’Day tells DelVecchio in PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek at Friday’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.

In the episode, O’Day, 34, finds DelVecchio, 38, speaking with fellow cast members Quani and Puma. During their discussion, the Jersey Shore star reveals that O’Day had wished him dead — a comment she is angered he didn’t confront her about privately.

“I didn’t bring up the topic, they did,” DelVecchio says in his defense.

“No, I’m saying you’re being aggressive and you’re starting to go in the wrong direction,” O’Day tells him. “Why don’t you just talk to me about what you felt? I understand that’s hard to hear; it’s also hard to be abused.”

But O’Day’s criticism is evidently taking a toll on her now ex-boyfriend, who admits to be being “really shut down right now” and “really hurt.”

“Somebody I’m going to spend the rest of my life with is someone I trust … and all that was broken down. Everything was thrown out the door the second I heard she wished I was dead,” he explains. “I would never in my entire life put any time and effort in someone that wishes me dead.”

DelVecchio and O’Day met in early 2016 while filming the E! relationship rehab series Famously Single, which chronicled their tumultuous relationship. In July 2017, PEOPLE confirmed that the pair had permanently split.

Earlier this month, DelVecchio opened up about his past relationship with O’Day, saying he has any regrets about the breakup.

“They’re so happy that I’m not in that relationship anymore and so am I,” DelVecchio told Page Six about his Jersey Shore: Family Vacation castmates.

Channing Tatum Wishes Ex Jenna Dewan ‘Happy Mother’s Day, Baby’ as Split Remains ‘Amicable’

No Mother’s Day drama here!

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan‘s post-split holiday was smooth sailing, with a source telling PEOPLE the stars are still “very amicable.”

“Evie spent Mother’s Day weekend with Jenna while Channing was traveling,” the insider says of their daughter Everly, who turns 5 later this month. 

Despite no longer being together, Tatum, 38, shared a message for Dewan, 37, on his Instagram Story, Sunday.

“Happy Mother’s Day everybody,” he said in a video taken in the desert, which he has called his “sanctuary” after the split. “Jenna, happy Mother’s Day, baby. Mama, happy Mother’s Day — I hope you’re enjoying this beautiful sunset. Love you guys.”

The holiday weekend came just six weeks after the former pair announced their separation following nearly nine years of marriage.

A reality insider previously told PEOPLE on April 23 that the split has “been hard for Channing.” Now, though, the first source says, “He’s adjusting better to the separation and is keeping busy with his friends and work.”

In addition to spending part of the holiday weekend at Buttonwillow Raceway Park outside of Los Angeles, Tatum, has “been traveling a ton between CinemaCon commitments and for his vodka company,” Born and Bred, the source says. 

As for his communication with Dewan, the source tells PEOPLE, “He and Jenna are still on the same page when it comes to their daughter and they’re always in touch about her.”

“Their relationship continues to be very amicable,” the source adds.

“We started out as friends, and I would say it was an instant recognition,” Dewan recently shared in the cover story for the 15th-anniversary issue of Vegas magazine — her first since the split.

“When we met , it felt like we had known each other for many years. Ultimately, no matter what Chan and I are doing, we’re really great friends. I think that will never change, no matter what,” she added.

Still, both are showing signs that they’re moving on. Three weeks after the pair announced their split, Dewan changed her name on social media from “Jenna Dewan Tatum” back to “Jenna Dewan.”

Twitter Wishes Election Night Had Gone More Like The Oscars

Sunday night’s Oscars turned into a real doozy when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway presented “La La Land” with the Best Picture award even though “Moonlight” was the real winer. 

Beatty was apparently handed the wrong envelope offstage, and PricewaterhouseCoopers ― the company behind the ballot counting ― apologized for the disappointing error in a statement.

“We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture,” the statement read. “The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected. We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred.”

Which got people on Twitter thinking: What if election night had gone the same way?

Ultimaya 1.0: The Trouble with the Wishes of Leopold Stokes

Ultimaya 1.0: The Trouble with the Wishes of Leopold Stokes

December, 1992. Leopold Stokes, a small town Carolina banker with big dreams, ambitions-and temper-springs for his first laptop from his old friend Charley Bass. On the computer is a software program Leo didn’t pay for: “Ultimaya 1.0,” which promises to “fulfill his deepest wishes.” Leo queries Charley, who encourages him to see what it’s all about. Leo can’t resist. He opens the program-and is soon hurtling into the adventure of a lifetime…His first foray into working with the mysterious program has a totally shocking result: a wish that Leo voices in anger at Nan, his housekeeper and longtime family friend, comes true and Leo realizes that Ultimaya 1.0 has tremendous powers to do exactly what it promises-but only for him. Shattered by what happened with Nan, but astounded by the possibilities the program offers, Leo desperately tries to get some kind of bargaining leverage with Ultimaya 1.0. But he continually fails. He consults with Charley, an enthusiastic experimenter with psychedelics in the 1960s and Eastern meditation in the 1970s. He repeatedly warns Leo of the karmic dangers of trying to exploit the program for his own ends. But for all his inhibitions and ambivalence in so much of his life-including his longtime, on-and-off romance with high school flame Constance Cunningham-Leo has a lust for power that Ultimaya talks to loud and clear. As he struggles to express his wishes and yet control the program, Leo gets taken deeper into mysterious coincidences he can’t understand. Finally, frustrated to the max, he throws caution to the winds and insists that Ultimaya 1.0 fulfill all his deepest wishes-immediately-but cannot, in his wildest dreams, imagine where that command will wind up taking him. Part Aladdin and His Magic Lamp with a computer for a genie, part Sorcerer’s Apprentice with no sorcerer to take command, and part modern-day Christmas Carol that keeps us guessing and sometimes wincing until the very end, Ultimaya 1.0 is a hip, hugely satisfying sci-fi

Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes

Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes

Get this: Cronus liked to eat babies. Narcissus probably should have just learned to masturbate. Odin got construction discounts with bestiality. Isis had bad taste in jewelry. Ganesh was the very definition of an unplanned pregnancy. And Abraham was totally cool about stabbing his kid in the face. All our lives, we’ve been fed watered-down, PC versions of the classic myths. In reality, mythology is more screwed up than a schizophrenic shaman doing hits of unidentifiedwait, it all makes sense now. In Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes, Cory O’Brien, creator of Myths RETOLD!, sets the stories straight. These are rude, crude, totally sacred texts told the way they were meant to be told: loudly, and with lots of four-letter words. Skeptical? Here are a few more gems to consider: Zeus once stuffed an unborn fetus inside his thigh to save its life after he exploded its mother by being too good in bed. The entire Egyptian universe was saved because Sekhmet just got too hammered to keep murdering everyone. The Hindu universe is run by a married couple who only stop murdering in order to throw sweet dance partieson the corpses of their enemies. The Norse goddess Freyja once consented to a four-dwarf gangbang in exchange for one shiny necklace. And there’s more dysfunctional goodness where that came from.

Gwen Stefani Wishes Her Divorce From Gavin Rossdale ‘Didn’t Happen’

Gwen Stefani opened up about her “unexpected” divorce from ex-husband Gavin Rossdale in yet another radio interview. 

The “Used To Love You” singer was on “The Tommy Show” Wednesday morning and talked about her 13-year marriage, hinting at the cheating rumors that have been swirling around. Rossdale allegedly cheated with the family nanny for three years, according to Us Weekly. 

“I feel like I go back and listen to a lot of that stuff, and I get sick,” said Stefani to the radio station. “You look at the song and you go ‘That was a red flag. That was a moment where I was feeling just as bad as I feel today and why did I keep it up?'” 

Stefani and Rossdale filed for divorce in August after nearly 20 years of being together. They have three children, sons Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 1. 

“I wish it didn’t happen, I wish that all of this wasn’t happening but at the same time, I feel like it was part of my life journey,” Stefani said on the radio show. “In my life I’ve had two really bad heartbreaks and I’ve written some incredible music out of it and I feel so lucky to have that and to be able to share it.” 

Stefani has previously admitted that her new single, “Used To Love You,” was written during a time period when her life was crumbling. 

“I had been writing because my life blew up,” the singer said during an interview with  KIIS FM’s JoJo Wright. ”Everybody knows that my life blew up last February. I’d just been dealing with that.” 

Stefani has since moved on with fellow “Voice” coach and country singer, Blake Shelton.

9 Things Your Hair Colorist Wishes You’d Stop Doing

The relationship we all have with our hair colorist is one of the most intimate we have outside of our family and friends. We trust them to conceal our roots or gray hair, and fix our bad at-home dye jobs (more on this later). 

At the end of the day, your hair colorist has a job to do, but there are some key things you can do to make his or her life easier. Here’s a couple of bad habits your colorist wishes you’d break — after all, this is a relationship worth saving. 

1. Don’t be late for your hair appointment. “Five to 10 minutes late is understandable,” says Kyle White, the lead colorist at Oscar Blandi Salon in New York City. “Life happens, there’s traffic or the babysitter was late. I totally get it, but when you are consistently 20 minutes late for your appointment, it says one thing to me. You think your time is way more valuable then mine, and every other client that will be kept waiting because of you.” The pro’s advice: If you are more than 15 minutes late, apologize profusely and reschedule.

2. Don’t be dishonest about your hair history. ”If there’s color on your hair or it’s chemically straightened, we need to know,” White says. “I promise we won’t think any less of you if your hair is not 100 percent natural or you had to see someone else while you were summering in the Hamptons.” A colorist may get angry if they use the incorrect dye formula because a client fibbed about their hair being “virgin” or using a box color the week prior, White explained. “Always be honest,” he says. “It could be the difference between beautiful hair and head full of straw.”

3. Don’t wear white or an expensive designer outfit to get your hair dyed. L’Oréal Paris celebrity colorist Kari Hill says, “When people come for hair color application dressed completely in white — makes me nervous!” White adds, “Also, I’m betting that you won’t care what color your hair is if we get a huge glob of bleach on that Birken!”

4. Don’t forget to bring a picture“You know the saying ‘A picture says a thousand words.’ Well, that’s never truer than when it comes to color,” says White. Pro trick: look for a photograph of someone with a similar skin tone, eye color and natural base hair color as your own because those shades will probably work best and be the most achievable.

5. Don’t show up with wet or dirty hair. Hill notes that you can’t color wet hair, so it wastes time having to blow dry it first and then apply color. “There’s also a false belief that it’s better to color on very dirty hair [but] an excessive amount of hair product residue on strands can impede color application,” she says.

6. Don’t move around while you are getting your hair colored. “I swear sometimes I think the clients are more interested in reading magazines and sipping cappuccinos then they are about getting their hair done right,” says White. “If you’re a moving target, things get messed up, highlights get placed incorrectly or a spot may be missed.”

7. Don’t distract your hairdresser by talking non-stop. “There’s no denying that there is a strong social aspect to a hair appointment, and many of my best friends started out as clients,” he says. “Keep in mind that intricate haircuts and color are complex procedures that require a reasonable amount of concentration.”

8. Don’t have unrealistic expectations about the outcome. Having black hair with a desire to go blonde in under an hour is impossible, according to Hill. “It doesn’t work time-wise, and you will never be totally pleased with rushed results,” she says.

9. Don’t forget to protect your fresh new hair color from the sun. “I’m tired of hearing clients tell me that they spent time in the sun and then complain about their color changing,” says Hill. “Hair oxidizes without the proper protection! I always advise on wearing hats or headscarves, limiting sun exposure and using products with UV filters.”

4 Wishes for the Class of 2015

The following speech was delivered on June 27, 2015 at the Tsinghua School of Economics & Management commencement in Beijing.

I am honored to be here today to address Dean Yingyi Qian, Tsinghua School of Economics and Management’s distinguished faculty, proud family members, supportive friends, and most importantly, the class of 2015. Unlike my boss, Mark Zuckerberg, I do not speak Chinese. For that I apologize. But he did ask me to pass along this message — zhuhe. I am thrilled to be here to congratulate this magnificent class on your graduation.

When Dean Qian invited me to speak today, I thought, come talk to a group of people way younger and cooler than I am? I can do that. I do that every day at Facebook, since Mark is 15 years younger than I am and many of our employees are more his contemporaries than mine. I like being surrounded by young people, except when they say to me, “What was it like being at university without a mobile phone?” or worse, “Sheryl, can you come here? We need to see what old people think of this feature.”

I graduated from college in 1991 and business school in 1995. This was not that long ago. But I can tell you: the world has changed an awful lot in just 25 years. My business school class tried to have our school’s first online class. We had to pass out a list of screen names because it was unthinkable to put your real name on the Internet. And it did not work because the system kept crashing — it just wasn’t possible for 90 people to communicate at once online.

But for a few brief moments in between crashes, we glimpsed the future — a future where technology would connect us to our colleagues, our relatives, our friends. The world we live in today is one I could not have imagined when I was sitting where you are. And 25 years from now, you will have helped shape your generation’s world.

As graduates of Tsinghua, you will be leaders not just in China, but globally. China is a world leader in terms of educational attainment and economic growth. It is not just political and business leaders that recognize the importance of China. Many American parents realize it as well; the hardest schools to get into in the San Francisco Bay area where I live are those that teach Chinese.

But the fact is countries don’t lead. People lead.

As you graduate today, you start your path toward leadership. What kind of leader will you be? How much impact on others will you have? What will be your mark on the world?

At Facebook, we have posters on our walls to remind us to think big — to challenge ourselves to do more each and every day. There are important leadership lessons reflected in these posters — and today, I want to cover four of them that I think can be meaningful for you.

First, fortune favors the bold.

Facebook exists because Mark believed that the world would be a better place if people could use technology to connect as individuals. He believed it so much that he dropped out of Harvard College to pursue that mission and he fought to hold onto it over the years. What Mark did was not lucky. It was bold.

It’s unusual to find your passion as early as Mark. It took me far longer to figure out what I wanted to do. When I was sitting in a graduation robe, I could not have considered a job at Facebook because the Internet did not exist — and Mark was only 11 years old. I thought I would only ever work for the government or a philanthropic organization because I believed these institutions made the world a better place while companies only worked towards profits. But when I was working at the U.S. Treasury Department, I saw from afar how much impact technology companies were having on the world and I changed my mind. So when my government job ended, I decided to move to Silicon Valley.

In retrospect, this seems like a shrewd move. But in 2001, it was questionable at best. The tech bubble had burst. Large companies were doing massive layoffs and small companies were going out of business. I gave myself four months to find a job. It took almost a year. In one of my first interviews, a tech company CEO said to me, “I took this meeting as a favor to a friend but I would never hire someone like you — people from the government can’t work in technology.”

Eventually, I persuaded someone to hire me, and 14 years later, I still love working in tech. It was not my original plan, but I got there — eventually.

I hope if you find yourself on one path but longing for something else, you find a way to get there. And if that isn’t right, try again. Try until you find something that stirs your passion, a job that matters to you and matters to others. It’s a luxury to combine passion and contribution. It’s also a clear path to happiness.

Second, feedback is a gift.

At Facebook, I knew that the most important determinant of my performance would be my relationship with Mark. When I joined, I asked Mark for a commitment that he would give me feedback every week so that anything that bothered him would be aired and discussed quickly. Mark not only said yes but immediately added that he wanted it to be reciprocal. For the first few years, we stuck to this routine and met every Friday afternoon to voice concerns big and small. As the years went by, sharing honest reactions became part of our relationship and we now do so in real time rather than waiting for the end of the week.

Getting feedback from your boss is one thing, but it’s every bit as important to get feedback from those who work for you. This is not an easy thing to do as employees are often eager to please those above them and don’t want to criticize or question their higher-ups.

One of my favorite examples of this comes from Wall Street. In 1990, Bob Rubin became the CEO of Goldman Sachs. At the end of his first week, he looked at Goldman’s books and noticed large investments in gold. He asked someone why. The answer? “That was you, sir.” “Me?” he replied. Apparently, the day before he had been walking around on the trading floor and he commented to someone that “gold looks interesting.” This got repeated as “Rubin likes gold” and someone spent hundreds of millions of dollars to make the new boss happy.

On a smaller scale, I have faced a similar challenge. When I joined Facebook, one of my tasks was to build the business side of the company — but without destroying the engineering-driven culture that made Facebook great. So one of the things I tried to do was discourage people from doing formal PowerPoint presentations for meetings with me. At first, I asked nicely. Everyone ignored me and kept doing their presentations. So about two years in, I said, “OK, I usually hate rules but I now have a rule: No more PowerPoint in my meetings.”

About a month later I was about to address our global sales team, when someone said to me, “Before you get on that stage, you really should know everyone’s pretty upset about the no PowerPoint with clients thing.” I was shocked. I had never banned these presentations for clients! I just did not want them in meetings with me. How could we present to our clients without PowerPoint? So I got on the stage and said, “One, I meant no PowerPoint with me. And two, next time you hear a bad idea — like not doing proper client presentations — speak up. Even if you think it is what I have asked for, tell me I am wrong!”

A good leader recognizes that most employees won’t feel comfortable challenging authority, so it falls upon authority to solicit feedback. I learned from my PowerPoint mistake. I now ask my colleagues “What could I do better?” And I always thank the person who has the guts to answer me honestly, often by praising them publicly. I firmly believe that you lead best when you walk side-by-side with your colleagues. When you don’t just talk but you also listen.

Third, nothing is someone’s else’s problem.

When I started my career, I observed people in leadership roles and thought, “They’re so lucky. They have so much control.” So imagine my surprise when I took a course in business school on leadership and was told that as you get more senior, you are more dependent on other people. At the time, I thought my professors were wrong.

They were right. I am dependent on my sales team… not the other way around. If they fall short, it is my mistake. As a leader, what I can accomplish is not just what I can do myself but what everyone on my team does.

Companies in every country operate in ways that are right for their cultures. But I believe that there are some principles of leadership that are universal — and one of those is that it is better to inspire than to direct. Yes, people will do what their bosses tell them to do in most organizations. But great leaders do not just want to secure compliance. They want to elicit genuine enthusiasm, complete trust, and real dedication. They don’t just win the minds of their teams, they win their hearts. If they believe in your organization’s mission and they believe in you, they will not only do their daily tasks well, but they will do them with true passion.

No one won more hearts than my beloved husband Dave Goldberg who passed away suddenly two months ago. Dave was a truly inspiring leader. He was kind. He was generous. He was thoughtful. He raised the level of performance of everyone around him. He did it as CEO of SurveyMonkey, an amazing company that he helped build. He did it for me and for our children.

A friend of ours named Bill Gurley, a leading venture capitalist in Silicon Valley, wrote a post where he urged others to “Be Like Dave.” Bill wrote, “Dave showed us all exactly what being a great human being looks like… But it was never frustrating because Dave’s greatness was not competitive or threatening. It was gentle, inspirational and egoless. He was the quintessential standard for the notion of leading by example.”

Harvard Business School Professor Frances Frei has said “leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.” Like Dave, you can do this for others over the course of your career.

Fourth, lean in.

As the Chinese proverb holds — “women hold up half the sky.” This is quoted all over the world and women have a special role in China’s history and present.

When the world has gathered to discuss the status and advancement of women, we’ve done it here in Beijing. In 1995, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action — which called for women’s full and equal participation in life and decision-making — was adopted by 189 governments. Last year, on the 20th anniversary of that historic declaration, leaders again gathered here to mobilize around what has become known as the promise of Beijing: equality for women and men.

Yet while we all acknowledge the importance and strength of women, when we look at leadership roles in every country, they are overwhelmingly held by men. In almost every country in the world — including the United States and China — less than 6 percent of the top companies are run by women. Women hold fewer leadership roles in every industry. This means that when it comes to making the decisions that affect all us, women’s voices are not heard equally.

There are many reasons for the gender leadership gap — outright discrimination, greater responsibilities at home, a lack of flexibility in the workplace, and importantly, our stereotypical expectations. While cultures differ all over the globe, our stereotypes of men and women are remarkably similar. Although the status of women is changing and evolving in China and many parts of the world, traditional expectations and stereotypes linger. To this day, in the U.S., in China, and everywhere, men are expected to lead, be assertive, succeed. Women are expected to share, be communal, acquiesce to others. We expect leadership from boys and men. But when a little girl leads, we call her “bossy” in English, or qiang shi in Chinese.

Other social barriers also hold women back. Women are often excluded from professional networks — like Guanxi — and both formal and informal socializing that is critical for job advancement. This is also true in the United States, where men often chose to mentor other men instead of women.

I believe that the world would be a better place if men ran half our homes and women ran half our institutions — and the good news is that we can change the stereotypes and get to real equality. We can support women who lead in the workforce. We can find more balance in the home by fathers helping mothers with housekeeping and childrearing; more equal marriages are happier and more active fathers raise more successful children. We can walk up to someone who calls a little girl “bossy,” and say instead, “That little girl is not bossy. That little girl has executive leadership skills.”

And I want to make this very clear: Equality is not just good for women. It’s good for everyone. Female participation in the workforce is a major driver of economic growth. Companies that recognize the full talents of the entire population outperform those that do not. AliBaba CEO Jack Ma, who stood here last year, has said that “one of the secret sauces for Alibaba’s success is that we have a lot of women… without women, there would be no Alibaba.” Women hold 40 percent of all jobs at Alibaba and 35 percent of senior positions — far more than most companies anywhere in the world.

Great leaders don’t just develop people like them, they develop everyone. If you want to be a great leader, you will develop the women — as well as the men — at your companies and on your teams.

Our peers can help us develop, too. When Lean In was published in 2013, we launched LeanIn.org, a nonprofit with a mission to empower all women to achieve their ambitions. LeanIn.Org helps form Lean In Circles, small peer groups who met regularly to share and learn together. There are now over 23,000 circles in more than 100 countries.

The first international Lean In Circle I ever met with was in Beijing — a group of young professional women who gathered to support each other’s professional ambitions and challenge the idea of “shengnu,” leftover women. In the past two years, they have built a network of Circles throughout China from working professionals to university students — women and men who come together to support equality. One of these Circles is at Tsinghua, and I met with them earlier this morning. I was inspired by their passion for their studies and their careers. As one member told me, “It was when I first joined Lean In Tsinghua that I began to fully understand the Chinese proverb, ‘A just cause enjoys abundant support.'”

I believe your generation will do a better job than mine at fixing the problem of gender inequality. So we turn to you. You are the promise for a more equal world.


Today is a day of celebration. A day to celebrate your accomplishments, the hard work that brought you to this moment.

This is a day of gratitude. A day to thank the people who helped you get here — the people who nurtured you, taught you, cheered you on and dried your tears. Today is a day of reflection. A day to think about what kind of leader you want to be.

I believe that you are the future leaders, not only of China but of the world. And for each of you, I wish four things:

1. That you are bold and have good fortune. Fortune favors the bold.

2. That you give and get the feedback you need. Feedback is a gift.

3. That you empower everyone. Nothing is somebody else’s problem.

4. That you support equality. Lean In!

I recently celebrated another birthday… thank you for your well-wishes. In the week since my birthday, I’ve received over a hundred “happy birthday” messages, many of them from people I haven’t spoken to in years.

Isn’t it funny how people seem to come out of the woodwork to wish you a happy birthday? Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great! It really makes you feel special to be inundated with well-wishes on your birthday, but the contrast is striking. Where are most of these people the other 364 days of the year? Some are like your great aunt Sue, sending a mass “happy holidays” message in December and a unique “happy birthday” message on your special day. Others are school friends who haven’t interacted with you since graduation day. There are the people you’re vaguely friends with, and those whom you’re surprised they know your birthday; but of course they do – Facebook told them.

There, I said it. The number of people who actually know when your birthday is, or have a sense of what month it’s in, can probably be counted on your fingers and toes. But thanks to Facebook, hundreds of people get reminders that prompt them to send the two words “happy birthday” en masse. Don’t believe it? Try changing the date on your Facebook account and see how many birthday messages you get on your listed fake birthday. (You’ll also see who actually knows when your birthday is by the few messages that say “I’m confused, I thought your birthday is in April” – go buy each of them a present, they deserve it.)

But are these prompted well-wishes bad? No. Everyone wants to feel loved on his or her birthday, and getting a plethora of birthday wishes reinforces that you are special. Remember, even with an automatic reminder, your friends and acquaintances are still choosing to send you a message. And let’s get real, we all have senior moments, no matter our age; even your closest friends who know when your birthday is need reminders sometimes – I’ve sent numerous belated birthday wishes to childhood friends whose birthdays I’ve known for decades but I forgot on the actual day.

Indeed, one of the most amusing things to me on my birthday was, amidst the onslaught of “happy birthday” messages, to get a text about something unrelated from a good friend who’s forgotten my birthday. Seems odd, no? It was an amusing variation from the theme of the day’s messages, and if someone is my friend 364 days of the year then I don’t mind if he or she forgets my birthday.

Try something new for a year: commit to reaching out every three months to each person you send a birthday wish to. That’s just four times a year, once a season. (Space them out so you don’t have to send all 200 messages on the same day.) But how will you remember if Facebook isn’t reminding you to message them? The same way we did before Facebook: Set a reminder in your calendar. (And how convenient, your phone or computer can automatically repeat the reminder every three months!) I assure you that if you do, at least a handful of these acquaintances will reply and a few will blossom into great friendships. And then on your birthday next year, they can be the ones who obliviously give you a laugh by forgetting it’s your special day!

Pedro Pascal Really Wishes He Were Still On ‘Game Of Thrones,’ Even In Small Part

Pedro Pascal isn’t that different from most “Game of Thrones” viewers — he wishes his character, the charismatic Oberyn Martell, was still on the HBO show.

Pascal was at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 24, to launch a new “Game of Thrones” beer from Brewery Ommegang. After a packed audience watched Pascal tap the first keg of the amber-brown Valar Morghulis beer, the actor talked to HuffPost TV about missing his “Game of Thrones” role, and dealing with people who want to squeeze his head.

HuffPost TV: How many of the people who walk up to you and want to say hello also want to squeeze your head?

Pedro Pascal: Like, they want to puncture my eyeballs? A lot of them. I would say more than half of the people who want to get a picture. I always feel a little guilty when I say, “How about I just smile?” Because I don’t want to have to re-create the moment over and over again.

Yeah, that’s a little troubling. You don’t want to have to go to that place again and again.

Yeah, I don’t want to have to re-live the trauma.

Would you rather still be on “Game of Thrones,” or would you rather have the impact that you had, as the character and the way he left?

I think that ultimately, selfishly, I would want to still be on “Game of Thrones,” only because they are the greatest people I’ve ever worked with. Ninety percent of the work is taken care of by the writing — more than that. Ninety-nine percent is taken care of by writing that is that good, and that’s not something that I’m used to. On top of that, it’s the best crew, the best design team and the greatest cast I’ve ever worked with. I had such a good time, and I’ve never been so challenged. Even if my part would shrink to a fraction of what it was, to get to be there and be around everybody and hang out, it’s probably what I would opt for.

I think I’m just going to guilt [executive producers] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss]. I’m just going to describe my depression to the point that they’re like, “All right! Ellaria is going to have a dream!” [laughs]

Is it your favorite role?

It’s the best role I’ve ever played on screen, without question.

You said it was challenging — what was the biggest challenge of playing Oberyn Martell?

I would say that the character had a confidence that was really important to portray. Any human being would have trouble feeling that level of confidence — a dangerous sort of confidence, you know? He sort of owns his overconfidence — with major consequences, as you could see. And then physically, it was a very challenging role.

Also, I was very aware of the series, as millions are. I was a big fan of the show, and it was the first time I was ever asked to be part of something I was so hyperaware of as an audience member. So there was a lot to battle internally there. But David and Dan made it so easy.

Even though you were aware of the show, were you prepared for the fandom and events like this and how the fans have been to you?

I think the best thing to do is to play stupid. [laughs] It’s all so exciting and you always want to be careful with your expectations and whether they’re negative or positive. So I just sort of played dumb and had a job to do, which was so easy to do — they loved the character so much, and that was on my side from the beginning. The writers and the directors, they loved on the character so hard. So there was that easy focus, and then it was not up to me in terms of how it would be received.

Interview: Dr. John’s Wishes for a Blessed Mardi Gras

Music legend Dr. John, also known as New Orleans native son Mac Rebennack, Jr., probably gets more phone calls on Mardi Gras Day than the whole rest of the year so I got mine in early. Before the revelry hits full gear, here are his wishes to everyone for Mardi Gras 2014, and some memories of the city’s neighborhood traditions.

KDB: I remember how Wardell Quezergue used to talk about the Bone Gangs waking the neighborhood up at the crack of dawn, and he’d run and hide. What’s the first time you saw them?”

Dr. John: One of the first things I remember about the Bone Gangs, my Pa took me out to look at them and I don’t remember the name of the bone gang in the Third Ward, I just remember that they scared the hell out of me. They was all talking about stuff that people could get killed doing so it was a good thing in its way, but as a little kid you just don’t know how to relate to that.

KDB: The North Side Skull and Bone Gang has those aprons that say: “You’re next.” That could be alarming.

Dr. John: Sunpie (Barnes) and some of the guys that was in the Bone Gangs, I like them as cats. But that was a lot later. The first thing I remember back in the game is them guys used to wear real bones with meat. And that was just a weird thing. They would wear them bones and have all that meat hanging off of it, it was just a trip.”

KDB: And then you’ve got the Baby Dolls with their bloomers and cigars, that’s another tradition

Dr. John:
The Baby Dolls, they was a lot easier to take than the Bone Gangs. Back then the Baby Dolls and the Gangster Molls, they was two gangs that had the (walking) sticks. They was all from somewhere like Perdido Street, and I used to see them come out. One year my Pa took me, and by the end I saw it all.

KDB: Of course there are the Mardi Gras Indians.

Dr. John
: There was so many great Mardi Gras Indians. I mean, I remember the Red White and Blues, and the Golden Blades. I remember I think that the Red White and Blues snuffed one of the Golden Blades and just left him hanging on the branch of a tree. That’s a long time ago though, probably in the ’40s.

KDB: Before Big Chief Tootie Montana came out against the fighting, and made it about the artistry.

Dr. John: If it wouldn’t have been for Tootie Montana, they would have still been doing all that stuff. Tootie had a beautiful way of trying to pull everything together. It’s funny how stuff like that will always stick in your memory banks, even when you don’t have memory banks left.”

KDB: You have a bank full. I love that your song Big Bass Drum (All on a Mardi Gras Day) gives a shout out to so many of the chiefs.

Dr. John: Certain guys stick out, like the guy they used to call Soulful Pete. He was the Big Chief I think of the Black Eagles, but boy they were hip. He always had all these different kind of patches that was like from ancient Egypt or all kinds of weird stuff that he would put on his patches. It wasn’t at all like the other guys’ patches. That guy had so many different names, about 20 that people would call him. But he was a bad sucker for sowing them patches, that’s what I remember.

KDB: It’s great that the traditions are still being handed down.

Dr. John: “Yeah, It’s like I know Big Chief Little Charles (Taylor) from the White Cloud Hunters, and the Spirit of the Fi Ya Ya, they all slammin things to me.

KDB: I’m glad New Orleans is holding onto that. I think a lot of towns would have lost part of that culture by now.

Dr. John: I think it’s a blessing to keep everything they can keep into the whole picture.

KDB: You rarely get to enjoy it here in New Orleans though, it seems like you’re always touring on Mardi Gras.

Dr. John: But I’ll tell you, more people have called me up to wish me a Mardi Gras, that’s kind of special.

KDB: What’s your wish to everyone on this Mardi Gras Day, 2014?

Dr. John: Well I hope they all have a blessed Mardi Gras and do something that will be fun for them. And don’t hurt nobody. Tootie would have like that.

KDB: Amen. It’s supposed to be a cold day outside, but we’ll be warming up our insides.

Dr. John: Hey, if they dress warm enough they’ll be warm.
