David E. Kelley Would Support an ‘Ally McBeal’ Reboot, but With a Female Showrunner

When “Ally McBeal” premiered in the late ’90s, many critics applauded the legal drama for its portrayal of a flawed, complex woman in a central role. The show also sparked a national conversation when Time magazine infamously put Calista Flockhart’s face on its cover next to Susan B. Anthony, Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem, asking, […]

Sweet Home’s Jennifer Welch Would ‘Never Hire’ BFF Angie ‘Pumps’ Sullivan: ‘She’d Be a Nightmare’

Jennifer Welch gets by with a little help from her friends — but she knows where to draw the line.

The interior designer and star of Bravo’s Sweet Home Oklahoma is back with a new series, Sweet Home, which follows the Oklahoma City business owner and the employees at her company, Jennifer Welch Designs, as they navigate the ups and downs (and literal tornadoes!) of transforming lackluster homes and offices into luxurious new spaces.

PEOPLE has an exclusive clip from the show ahead of its debut on Nov. 2.

This time around, Welsh has brought on a trio of millennial women to work alongside her, including office manager Sabah Khan, interior design associate Sarah Moll, and project manager Alex Hodges. And while her staff has changed, her closest companions have not: quirky best friend (and fellow Bravo star) Angie “Pumps” Sullivan is back with her signature humor, as well as Welsh’s ex-husband Josh, with whom she lives and co-parents their two sons.

“Pumps is still Pumps,” the design guru says affectionately of her longtime best friend in the clip. “We are like sisters.”

Despite their close bond and the design jargon that Pumps has proudly picked up, Welch, who has 20 years of experience in the field, is determined to keep her bestie separate from her business.

“I would never hire Pumps,” she swears. “She would take her bra off in client meetings, she would have to go out and have 95,000 smokes… she’d be a nightmare,” Welsh deadpans, as Pumps nods her head in agreement beside her.

“I think it’s better that we have our separate careers,” Pumps chimes in. “I agree,” Welsh adds.

With her ride-or-die on board for moral support and comic relief, Welch continues to tackle “bigger and better projects,” ranging from mansions to law firms to oil companies. Each episode centers on a unique space, which Welch and her team reimagine and revitalize.

Sweet Home is one of three new design shows Bravo is launching this fall. All will air on their new Friday block of shows.

Buying it Blind follows six couples who buy and renovate their new home without ever setting foot inside with help from a team of experts, and Get a Room with Carson & Thom is a makeover series lead by Queer Eye for the Straight Guy alums Carson Kressley and Thom Filicia.

Sweet Home premieres Friday, Nov. 2 (10 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

Justin Bieber’s Manager Says He Once Feared Singer Would Die from ‘So Much Crap in His System’

Scooter Braun says that he once thought Justin Bieber would die in his sleep.

The music manager, 37, opened up about the “What Do You Mean?” singer’s dark past in a wide-ranging interview on Van Lathan’s The Red Pill podcast.

“I thought he was going to die,” Braun said candidly about Bieber, 24, in the discussion released Wednesday. “I thought he was going to go to sleep one night and have so much crap in his system that he would not wake up the next morning.”

Braun explained, “There was a time where I would go to sleep almost every night, when he had the money to fly away from me, and I was worried every night that I was going to lose him.”

Braun said he tried to save Bieber by keeping him from his music. “That was the time where I was telling him he’s not allowed to work,” Braun recalled. “And he used to yell and scream at me. He wanted to put music out, he wanted to tour, but I thought if he did that, he would die. So I just refused. We weren’t making any money … I didn’t want him to work because I wanted him to get healthy.”

Braun says that Bieber, who is engaged to Hailey Baldwin, is now in a much healthier place, all thanks to Bieber’s own determination. “I think that he made a conscious choice for himself to change,” Braun shared. “It wasn’t until one day he woke up and said, ‘Hey, I need to talk to you. I don’t want to be this person anymore.’ He made the decision to change and actually put that into action. The result is who he’s become today.”

In March 2013, after a week in which Bieber was treated for shortness of breath mid-show and lunged at a photographer, a source told PEOPLE, “He’s wildin’ out. On a scale of hot sauce, he’s a mild, but his money is so hot, it can get him anything.”

The next month, police raided Bieber’s tour bus in Sweden and confiscated drugs.

Then, in January 2014, Bieber’s home was raided by police after he allegedly threw eggs at a neighbor’s house.

Weeks later, he was arrested in Miami for DUI. “Mr. Bieber made a statement that he had consumed some alcohol, and that he had been smoking marijuana and had consumed some prescription medication,” a Miami Beach Police spokesperson said at the time.

“The people close to him try, but he’s a mess,” an industry source told PEOPLE in 2014. “He acts as though he’s never heard the word ‘no’ and he thinks he’s God.”

RELATED: Justin Bieber’s Manager Scooter Braun Shows Off the Home Ellen DeGeneres Convinced Him to Buy

Speaking on Lathan’s The Red Pill podcast, Braun reflected on the scrutiny Bieber’s behavior received. “I think Justin is an extraordinary young man who has been given an extraordinary life, and because of that he cannot complain that he’s held to extraordinary standards,” Braun said. “He used to complain, he used to fight it, and that’s kind of what got him into a dark place.”

Braun continued, “But when he accepted his responsibility and took a hard look at himself and not what everyone else was doing, that’s when he owned it, and he got healthy, and he got better, and he made the choice to change.”

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

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

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

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

RELATED: Ashley Iaconetti Celebrates Bachelor in Paradise Success Rate as Jared Haibon Says He Wants Babies

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

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

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

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

And last but not least, Iaconetti confirmed that she and Haibon are definitely interested in televising their nuptials — under one condition.

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

Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise premieres Aug. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

John Cena & Nikki Bella: Inside Their Canceled Nuptials on What Would Have Been Their Wedding Day

May 5 would have been John Cena and Nikki Bella‘s wedding day.

However, Bella, 34, called off the engagement three weeks before the WWE pair would walk down the aisle during their destination ceremony. Sources previously told PEOPLE that her decision to break up was due to their differing stances on marriage and having kids.

The nuptials would’ve occurred over a year after Cena, 40, proposed to Bella on live TV during WrestleMania 33 in April 2017. And there was even a TV special planned about their wedding set to air in July, but the concept was scrapped after they split after six years together.

RELATED: John Cena’s ‘Ups and Downs’ with Ex-Fiancée Nikki Bella — in His Own Words

While Cena and Bella will not be going ahead with their “I dos,” here are all the wedding details they had shared with their fans and viewers of Total Bella and Total Divas.

The Dress

The same month she accepted Cena’s proposal, Bella was already in full wedding mode as she spoke candidly about what she envisioned for her big day.

“I’m kind of happy I’m getting married in my 30s, because in my 20s I would’ve had something obnoxious, princess-like Kate Middleton. I want lace I think. I want something very classy, like classic and sexy. Something classic, form-fitting. I do want a veil,” Bella told PEOPLE in April 2017, jokingly adding, “Who am I without cleavage?”

Also in April 2017, Bella took a trip to New York Bridal Fashion Week to look at wedding dresses from Romona Keveza and Marchesa. In August 2017, Bella revealed hints about her gown, telling PEOPLE Now, “I can say that it’s a Marchesa.”

During an episode of Total Divas that aired in January 2018, Brie Bella surprised her twin sister with a bridal shopping trip, during which Nikki tried on multiple dress options.

Meanwhile, Cena did not opt for a custom look.

“I also have a few decent-looking tuxes in the wardrobe already, so depending on the colors and the schemes of the wedding and the theme, I might already have something,” he told PEOPLE in July 2017. “I have a few tailors that I work with, just because I’m not exactly somebody who can buy a suit off the rack.”

Wedding Planning

Following the engagement, Bella and Cena expressed their excitement for their wedding.

“I think everyone’s going to think I’m a bridezilla. I really do. I think I’m just so happy to be engaged and that John decided he wanted to get married. I just want to take this in and make it fun and happy,” Bella told PEOPLE in April 2017. “The minute it’s not fun, it’s like why are we doing this? This is why he didn’t want to do it, right? So I want to make it easy and romantic and intimate. Make it for us, no one else but us.”

In July 2017, Bella announced that Brie would be matron of honor.

Meanwhile, Cena told PEOPLE he doesn’t need all the pomp and circumstance.

“I’ve stressed to Nicole that I would really like to get it done because I guess it took me so long to ask, now that I’ve made the commitment I really just want to get married,” he said in July 2017.

“I want it yesterday, but we have a date,” Cena said in April, shortly before their breakup. “I’m excited, but I also have great perspective that I want the day to be important for Nicole.”

He added, “All that information rests on her shoulders. I’m involved in every single step of the process, but I am like the last checkpoint. So, let’s say, décor will be chosen. And then I’ll be given three options but be nudged to like number two. I will politely agree to number two, but I am very much actively a part of the process.”

In October 2017, Bella, who was competing on Dancing with the Stars at the time, revealed that the wedding date was pushed back. “We changed the date and location,” she said, adding that the adjustment was spurred by “schedules” as well as their many responsibilities and commitments.

Bachelorette Party — But No Bachelor Party

In March, Nikki celebrated with a nine-day bachelorette party in Paris with Brie and their closest friends.

Meanwhile, Cena said he had no interest in a stag night.

“No, I mean, why? Help me out. What is a bachelor party? I’m gonna skip it,” he told E! News in March.

The Big Day

While John and Nikki will not be tying the knot, Brie recently told PEOPLE that she will be there for her sister on their wedding date.

Brie said that she was considering planning a girls trip for her twin to keep their minds distracted. “I’m throwing some stuff out there to her. We might do something, we are deciding. There’s a part of her that just wants to be home,” she said in late April.

“I just told her, you lead the way and I’ll follow. … If it’s at home and eating pizza and devouring ice cream, I’m down for that or if want to escape to Napa and down a lot of wine, I’m down for that as well,” Brie added.

The mother of one also added that Total Bellas viewers will see everything that led up to the former couple’s separation.

“I have to give a lot of credit to John and Nicole. They really opened up their lives and they really wanted to close the curtain and be like this is it, we’re done,” she said. “My sister is really great with her fans in a way where she lets them connect with her. She lets them like go, ‘My life isn’t perfect and isn’t easy’ and lets them see the playbook of her life.”

Krystal Had Hoped Peter Kraus Would Be The Bachelor — and Hints That’s She’s Headed to Paradise

Ahead of Women Tell All, here’s  Krystal Tells All?

The Bachelor contestant – whom many dubbed this year’s “villain” – Krystal Nielson spilled on what was really happening on Arie Luyendyk Jr.‘s season with reality-obsessed producers of The Ellen DeGeneres Show after getting the boot during an infamous 2-on-1 date.

Turns out that like Bekah Martinez, Nielson appeared on the show hoping Peter Kraus, the fan favorite who made it to the final two on Rachel Lindsay‘s Bachelorette season, would be the guy handing out roses.

“You know, I was really pleasantly surprised,” the 30-year-old fitness coach said about Luyendyk Jr.. “I was really hoping it was going to be Peter. I wanted to give him a fair shot.”

She added, “Arie’s so different in a group setting versus one on one. In a group, he’s awkward and a little goofy and uncomfortable in a group setting. One on one, Arie’s completely different. He’s there for you. He’s very present.”

The reality star also addressed her breakdown after a group bowling date, when Luyendyk made a last-minute decision to bring all the women to the evening portion of the date despite previously saying that only the winning team of a bowling competition would have more time with him.

“The thing at the bowling alley was just my tipping point,” Nielson explained. “I’d been putting so much effort into him, and there was so much s– in the house and I was just there for Arie. When he changed his mind, some people think that’s an overreaction. I only had his word. I was pretty much done. I packed my bags that night.”

RELATED VIDEO: The Bachelor‘s Arie Luyendyk Jr. Says He Fell for Two Women on the Show: “I Didn’t Know I Was Capable of That”

Nielson added that she wasn’t the only woman upset by the sudden change but said no one publicly had her back.

She also said she wasn’t able to address comments she made on the bus ride back to the hotel after the date, which was spoken about by the cast but not caught on camera. However, she hinted that “it was a big f–ing deal.”

Nielson said that she felt “misunderstood” during filming but didn’t know that she would be portrayed so negatively when the show aired.

“It’s such an interesting dynamic that was really hard for me to navigate through because I’m there for Arie – I gave up so much of my life for this guy and this relationship, and that’s where my focus is,” she said. “It’s not summer camp, braiding hair and making girlfriends. That’s not what I signed up for. So that really separated me instantly.”

But have we seen the last of Nielson?

Although she wouldn’t confirm that she’s been tapped to appear on Bachelor in Paradise, she definitely didn’t deny it – and she had an idea of who she’d be looking for on the beach.

“It would have to be someone who definitely works for themselves. Entrepreneurial. Definitely health and fitness. And has to be a dog person,” Nielson said, immediately causing co-executive producer Corey Palent to respond, “That’s Peter!”

Ed Sheeran Says He Would Play Meghan and Harry’s First Dance at Their Wedding — If They Ask

If Meghan Markle and Prince Harry need a singer for their upcoming wedding, Ed Sheeran knows a guy…himself!

After the Grammy winner received an MBE, signifying he’s a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in recognition of his services to music and charity, on Thursday, he told reporters that the royal couple have not been in touch about serenading them for their first dance as husband and wife.

But should they ask, Sheeran’s down for the gig.

“Yeah, why not?!” he said.

After all, the 26-year-old does have some experience as a wedding singer — in 2015, he crashed the Sydney wedding of Kya and Matt Debono and performed his romantic hit “Thinking Out Loud” for their first dance.

Prince Charles bestowed the MBE honor to Sheeran on behalf of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. Because he was not made a “Sir” (or knight), the ceremony did not involve the traditional sword tap on the shoulder.

After the ceremony, Sheeran revealed that his grandfather was a fan of the monarchy and thought he would be proud that his grandson received such an honor.

“Do you know what I love, my grandfather was a massive royalist, he had all the commemorative plates and stuff, and he died on this day four years ago, so it’s actually quite a nice full circle thing, I guess he’d be pretty proud,” he told reporters.

Harry and Meghan’s wedding will be in May at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The couple’s Kensington Palace spokesman said the soon-to-be newlyweds are “extremely grateful following the warm public response” to their engagement.

“Windsor is a very special place for Prince Harry, and he and Ms. Markle have regularly spent time there during the last year,” said the spokesman. “They are delighted that the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple.”

The couple are also said to want a wedding cake made from bananas, a source told The Telegraph. And the reason why has a romantic twist.

In addition to Harry reportedly loving “anything with banana,” the fruit has also played a cheeky role in their relationship.

Just hours after their budding romance was confirmed in late October of last year, the former Suits actress posted a cryptic image of two cuddling bananas on her Instagram. Alongside the quirky romantic photo, she added the caption, “Sleep tight xx.”

The unexpected banana post sent royal watchers into a frenzy over the new couple’s relationship. And now, just one year later, they’re planning to celebrate their big day with a banana cake — which would be a first for a royal wedding.

South Park Creator ‘Would Love to Make a FPS’

After now having worked on two South Park role-playing games, series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker discussed what other genres they might like to explore.

“I would love to make a first-person shooter. I’m not even kidding,” Stone said in an interview with IGN. “Some sort of first-person, going through a 3D thing where you’re seeing characters.”

Stone went on to note how the role-playing genre is such a good fit for South Park, saying, “I love the way we do

and Stick of Truth where the whole conceit behind those is it looks like the show.” Parker also pointed out how “RPGs just play so well into… writing, and applying to characters,” which makes the genre such a good fit for South Park.

Shania Twain Was ‘Shattered’ by Divorce as She Battled Lyme Disease: ‘I Never Thought I Would Sing Again’

Shania Twain feared she would never sing again after a battle with Lyme disease affected her vocal cords and caused her to withdraw form the spotlight for over a decade.

The “That Don’t Impress Me Much” singer is opening up to 60 Minutes Australia about the toll the illness took on her, both physically and emotionally.

“I never thought I would sing again,” she said.

The 52-year-old singer had to fight to regain her singing voice from the damaging effects of dysphonia, the result of Lyme disease.

 

She also said that her divorce from Robert Lange after reports of infidelity left her “broken” as she fought for her health.

“I was shattered,” she said. “How many more traumatic moments can I take?’ she said.  “I wasn’t just broken, I was shattered.”

In July, Twain also opened up to PEOPLE about her battle with Lyme: “I was very scared for a little while that I wouldn’t sing again, ever. I went through that moment, but I found a way. I found a way to do it.”

Now, using her voice requires lengthy warmups and physical therapy that Twain described as “very, very difficult.”

Twain was away from the music scene for 15 years, as she worked to recover from the disease

Twain’s 2015 attempt at a final tour was plagued by health issues, as she was forced to cancel several dates due to a “respiratory infection.”

Firsts and Faves with Shania Twain

Now, the singer is making another comeback. Twain recently announced the release of her latest album Now — her first in 15 years. She previously told PEOPLE that the self-penned project isn’t a comback,  it’s “a continuation. This is an evolution,” she said.
“It’s all about reflecting on what I’ve been through, owning what I’ve been through, not ignoring it and saying ‘forget about it, move on,’ ” she told PEOPLE. “I don’t want to forget about it. It’s made me who I am.”
The full interview will air on 60 Minutes Australia on Sunday.

Hearthstone’s Frozen Throne: Everything Blizz Would Tell Us

Blizzard unveiled its next Hearthstone expansion yesterday, and boy, is it going to shake things up. Knights of the Frozen Throne is coming in August and will take players to Northrend and give them 135 new cards to play with, including a new type of card, the Hero card. There’s one of these per class and playing them sees the hero transform into a Death Knight version of themselves. An evil, undead version of themselves.

Rexxar, for instance, becomes Rexxar Darkstalker. Playing his card will gain you armour, do AOE damage and give you a new hero power that lets you stitch together hideous chimera-like creatures, via a double Discovery, where you choose two beasts and then they fuse into one, with all the stats combined, all the abilities represented and costing whatever the total mana cost is. (Mike Donais has clarified how this works a little. You’ll be offered Hunter and neutral beasts at equal rates, they’ll always be five mana or below and the first pick is cards with text, the second with keywords or vanilla.)

Chris Hemsworth Has No Doubt Wonder Woman Would ‘Kick Thor’s Ass’

With a record-breaking opening weekend and stellar reviews, Wonder Woman is certainly having a moment. And while some men nationwide are having temper tantrums about women-only screenings of the female-led film, other men are totally aware of how fantastic the film, and its leading lady, really are. So, who’s the newest dude to hop on the Wonder Woman train? None other than the one who plays Marvel Comics’ Thor, Chris Hemsworth.

Wonder Woman’s lead actress Gal Gadot paid a visit to Katie Couric, and used the opportunity to call out Hemsworth and ask him if he thinks her Wonder Woman would win a fight against his Thor. (Check it out in the video below.) 

Hemsworth responded accordingly on Twitter, saying that he thinks Wonder Woman would, in fact, “kick Thor’s a**.”

And the conversation didn’t stop there. Couric agreed and Gadot followed up, saying she “always knew” Hemsworth was a “smart guy,” and suggesting that their two worlds ought to collide. 

We’ll be waiting with the popcorn.

Here’s What The Beatles’ Best Album Would Look Like In 2017

Shirley Temple. Marilyn Monroe. Karl Marx. Edgar Allen Poe.

These were just a few of the famous people The Beatles chose to include on the cover of their album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” which celebrates a 50th anniversary Thursday.

After Paul McCartney proposed having a group of recognizable faces on the band’s cover, each Beatle suggested celebrities to include. Not every choice made the list ― such as John Lennon’s desire to have Adolf Hitler and Jesus ― but many dozen people from varying backgrounds had their 2-D likenesses grace the space surrounding The Beatles.

Now, 50 years later, it’s difficult to imagine that so many different celebrities could seem representative for the culture of the day. In 2017, one person dominates the conversation.

If The Beatles continued to wear yellow, pink, blue and red, the contemporary backdrop surrounding them would surely be orange.

A recent report from Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy claimed that Donald Trump has dominated the 2017 news at an unprecedented level.

“President Trump dominated media coverage in the outlets and programs analyzed, with Trump being the topic of 41 percent of all news stories—three times the amount of coverage received by previous presidents,” said the report, which focused on major American newspapers, television channels and a few international outlets.

As New York Times reporter Farhad Manjoo wrote in February, after he tried to actively avoid consuming Trump news and ultimately failed, “I could find almost no Trump-free part of the press.”

Trump has even dominated the coverage in publications that traditionally focus on pop culture ― a sign the current president has fully consumed other celebrities whole. The publication Digiday ran a story in April with the headline, “’Politics is pop culture news’: In the Trump era, political news is everyone’s beat.”

Sure, Beyoncé or Drake or Jennifer Lawrence or LeBron James can still become the subjects of a huge news story. But these days, the next Trump mishap or scandal or tweet that everyone wants to talk about is mere hours away.

You’re not just living in Trump’s America because he’s president, but because all conversations now lead back to him.

As such, HuffPost illustrator Damon Dahlen reimagined the cover art from The Beatles best album to reflect our new reality. Trump is not just a famous person of the day’s news, he is the day’s news. Every single day.

Dahlen had incredible attention to detail and you can find Trump’s face in even the tiniest of bodies featured within the original. It’s truly a nightmare-inducing masterpiece.

Perhaps this is a bit askew from The Beatles’ original vision. The living Beatles, Paul and Ringo Starr, have each subtly expressed that they’re anti-Trump in their own ways, but their original album art was barely a political statement. Still, separating music from the omnipresence of Trump in this age is impossible. When listening even to music from the past, Trump is still on your brain, or about to be.

A recent Paris Review article about this phenomenon concluded by quoting the music critic Greil Marcus. A fan had asked on the critic’s website, “What are the key issues for music criticism in 2017?” Here’s Marcus’ response:

I can’t speak for anyone but myself. For me, what’s crucial is not to write about music, or anything else, without a sense of tyranny surrounding any attempt at communication, expression, or free speech of any sort.

“Sgt. Pepper’s” ends with the song “A Day in the Life,” which lyrically begins with Lennon singing, “I read the news today, oh boy.”

In 2017, this line would undoubtedly refer to Trump. Every single day.

Real Brides Reveal: How I Would Do Over My Wedding Dress

For BRIDES, by Whitney C. Harris.

Your wedding dress is probably the most memorable piece of clothing you’ll ever put on (as an adult anyway). You wear it on one of the most important days of your life, and it’s a significant investment both emotionally and financially. So you want to make sure you get it right. Many brides often look back on their wedding dress and wish they could have a redo — whether it be a small element like an accessory or rethinking the whole thing. What else do women walking down the aisle wish they had known before picking out their dress? Here are 14 former brides who reveal what they might do differently.

“I would have gone simpler, lighter, and more classically elegant and choose an option in that category that is price-friendly. If I redid my gown, I would try on a couple of simple silk or satin A-lines and see how I feel versus going straight to the bigger and frillier dresses. The last thing I would want is not to be able to dance the night away.” —Natalie N.E., Philadelphia

“Looking back, I would have loved a dress that didn’t require so many alterations. I went a bit over my original budget and didn’t realize that I’d have to spend nearly $ 500 to add French bustles as well. I was able to cut costs by ordering a veil online and sticking to ballet flats, but that only helped so much.” —Meghan E., Richmond, Virginia

“If I could do it all over again, I would have gone with a 1960s bohemian/beatnik style, which was just ahead of trend when I was getting married six years ago and not easily found. Something with long sleeves and an open back for my early spring celebration would have been supercool but practical at the same time.” —Maggie N., Sleepy Hollow, New York

“I probably would’ve allowed for a smidge more breathing room or a bit more stretch, as my dress was very snug. I did want a form-fitting silhouette, but it would’ve been nice to not have to suck in all night!” —April H., Honolulu

“I wanted a classic style that wouldn’t look too dated in pictures and chose a strapless piece in ivory satin with a boned corset and slight detailing and gathering at the hip. I had purchased a dress to change into for the evening function, however I never used it as I wanted to keep my wedding dress on and keep the fairy tale going! In hindsight, I wish I had chosen something a bit more ornate and detailed had I known I was going to wear it all day and night. Something with delicate lace on the arms/shoulders or maybe a matching lace over shrug that I could have removed for the evening to make the dress appear different would have been nice. I would also go for a sleeker style that didn’t restrict my movement so much, as the train and skirt on my original dress was quite heavy and it was difficult to dance in!” —Charlotte F., Manchester, England

“I would love to have a wedding dress with cold shoulders and ruffles, two trends that have taken the fashion world by storm over the past year! If I had done it when I had gotten married two years ago, it might have looked less traditional and even tacky, but today, I can see how it would have made the gown so much more chic!” —Pratibha V., New York City

“I would have made sure I tied the corset tighter. As I bent over to fill the unity sand bottle (we had a beach wedding), the audience got a great view of my ‘chicken cutlets’! Oh, to have larger boobs… “ —Jenn W., New York City

“I strongly recommend brides choose something classic that will still be in style for many years to come and avoid trends. I got married in 1988, which was just a horrible year for fashion. My dress was plantation style—I wish I had chosen something more formfitting so years later I could look at pictures and see what a great body I had. But the worst thing was the veil. I chose a veil that was designed as a giant bow. So in all my pictures, which really are lovely, I have this giant bow on my head. Everyone who looks at my pictures just laughs, and for this reason I took down wedding pictures that were hanging in my house. It was a trend then, but I so regret it now.” —Paige E., Woodland Hills, California

“I still think about the dress that I tried on two years ago and let get away. The dress fit like a glove and had enough embellishment that a simple veil would’ve paired perfectly. At the time, it seemed above my budget but honestly might’ve been worth all the time I spent second-guessing my decision. Also, by the time I finished altering my ‘cheaper’ dress and buying its ornate veil, the price wasn’t that much less than the other. For the record, I loved my ‘second’ dress and so did my husband, but it didn’t compare to the Romona Keveza. My advice to brides: If you see something you absolutely love and can’t stop thinking about—and aren’t above pinching pennies if you have to—go for it. For most of us, it’s the one time to wear an amazing gown and feel like a princess.” —Lauren W., Memphis

Calif. Dad Who Tried to Kill Kids with Carbon Monoxide in Garage Says, ‘If I Could Try Again, I Would’

A Sacramento, California father, who allegedly attempted to kill himself and his two sons by poisoning them with car exhaust fumes pleaded guilty on Monday, PEOPLE confirms.

Charles Lee Ewers, 39, will be sentenced to 22 years to life in state prison after pleading guilty to two counts of attempted murder, and also admitting to causing great bodily injury and using of a deadly weapon, according to a statement from the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office.

Ewers is currently in Sacramento County Jail and is scheduled to be sentenced June 6.

His lawyer was unavailable for comment on Monday afternoon.

Authorities said they received a call on April 4, 2015 from Ewers’ estranged wife after her two sons didn’t return home from their visit with Ewers, according to the statement.

Deputies went to his home and heard the sound of a running car motor in the garage. The deputies forced entry and found yellow hoses attached from the exhaust pipe leading into a small opening through a window, according to the statement.

Inside the car, deputies found the two boys, ages 8 and 10, with “bloodied head and faces,” according to the statement.

Ewers was seated in the driver’s seat. A replica airsoft gun was by his side.

Ewers later admitted to deputies that he had drugged the two boys with Ambien with the goal of using carbon monoxide poisoning to suffocate them. However, the boys didn’t fall asleep so he beat them multiple times in the head with a mallet, causing them serious injury, the statement says.

After the beating, he forced them inside his running car and told them that they were all “going to Heaven,” according to the statement.

Ewers told police he was “sad” that his plan wasn’t successful.

“I am in control,” he allegedly told deputies. “I am not in a rage. I am in control and I am sad that it didn’t work out. If I could try again, I would.”

Ewers said that he had planned the killings for several months and was just waiting for the “right time.”

Fashion Deals Update:

Yep, Jake Johnson Would Be Sad To Say Goodbye To ‘New Girl,’ Too

For six years, Jake Johnson has showed off his comedic acting chops as Nick Miller on Fox’s “New Girl.” Now, with the Season 6 finale airing Tuesday, some fans (and even the stars of the show, according to Johnson) are wondering if the episode will also double as the sitcom’s series finale. Fox has yet to announce whether the show will return for a seventh season.

The question on a lot of fans’ minds is whether Nick and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) will end up together. For his part, Johnson just hopes longtime viewers are happy with the way “New Girl” ends, whenever that day comes. 

“What I really in my heart believe, I just want the core fan base, the people who love the show, I want them to be happy. And I don’t actually know what that ending is,” he told The Huffington Post, adding, “I just want this TV show to end in a way so that the people who have committed six years of their lives to it, who have cared about it — I don’t want to let them down.”

Below, HuffPost catches up with Johnson ahead of the Season 6 finale.

In last week’s episode, Jess says she’s going to tell Nick how she really feels about him. What can fans expect in the Season 6 finale on Tuesday?

If you’re a fan of Nick and Jess and it’s a relationship you care about, there’s a resolution ― either good or bad, the finale doesn’t stay away from it. It’s front and center. I think some finales like to — season finales, because we don’t know we might be back ― they will stay away from it. This show doesn’t stay away from it. Liz Meriwether, the creator of our show, tackles it. So good or bad, happy or sad, those two [Nick and Jess] kind of get in it.

Are you hoping for a Season 7?

Oh, I gotta say, I’ve really loved playing Nick. He’s a character who I think the writers have done a really nice job with. [I also love] being able to do TV, improv and have a comedic rhythm. And more than anything, I would be sad not to be able to act with my co-stars anymore because of the rhythm we have when Nick and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) interact and Nick and Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Nick and Jess. And Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) when he was around ― it was really sad not to do those scenes with him anymore. As an actor, that’s the thing that people don’t realize. The audience gets to watch it in terms of the stories and gets to see the characters as real. But they’re not real to us. These are characters we get to play, and one day Fox is going to tell us that we don’t get to play them anymore.

What have been some of your favorite scenes and moments to shoot?

I’ll do something and people will go, ‘Oh that’s very Nick Miller-ish,’ and I’ll go, ‘Sure, he talks and looks like me. There’s always going to be similarities.’ But I’ll probably never get to play that character again if Fox passes on him, and I like playing him a lot. I love it. What’s the most fun at times are certain rhythms I’ll get into with certain actors that are just ridiculous, like the “Gave Me Cookie, Got You Cookie” run … I like when Nick is funny in those episodes and I like when Nick is really stunted mentally but really emotional. And I like when he’s trying really hard but he doesn’t have the emotional tools to figure out what’s happening.

What’s it like to work with Max Greenfield, who plays Schmidt on the show?

When he and I are arguing but are emotional, it’s really fun to do. I say that but I don’t really want to discredit everyone else. I love the Nick and Jess scenes and I love shooting with Winston. We improvise with each other. Max and I, when we step in to a scene, we’ll just start improvising and I’ll know exactly where he’s going and vice versa as these characters. We know the reaction we’re going to get from the crew and it will be sad to be like, ‘Oh, I’ll never do that again?’ I’ve been doing that for six years, multiple days a week.

The Season 6 finale of “New Girl” airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. Jake Johnson will next star in “Win It All,” a new film debuting Friday on Netflix.

This Is What Trump’s White House Correspondents Dinner Would Look Like

Donald Trump will be the first president in 36 years to be absent at the White House Correspondents Association dinner ― an annual tradition where media figures, politicians and celebrities schmooze for a night.

And while he and his staff likely turned down their invitations because of the president’s deep hatred for the media and so-called “fake news,” the folks over at “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” have figured out how to get Trump to attend: Invite the Russians.

What would that dinner look like? In Trump’s mind (or “The Late Show’s” version of Trump’s mind), it would probably include a Russian man like “Boris Yacanovich” riffing on journalists.

It would feature jokes like:

A journalist criticized the administration. And he was shot dead in the street. In broad daylight.

And other knee-slappers, including:

Another journalist expressed dissent. And he was dropped out of window. Kaboom.

Fingers crossed that the actual WHCA dinner never ends up looking like this.

Teachers’ ‘Les Mis’ Flash Mob Parody Would Make Even Javert Smile

Going back to school after summer can be misérable. But not if you’re a student in West Des Moines, Iowa.

At a welcome-back meeting for the school district’s staff, the superintendent’s speech was cut short by a flash-mob of teachers performing a parody of “One Day More” from Les Misérables.

Including lyrics like “Do we known the common core?” and “Will my lesson be a bore?” the delightful — and extremely well-rehearsed — rendition of the Broadway classic perfectly captures the qualms and trepidations about returning to the classroom after summer vacation.

While these lyrics are on point, so are the performers. Seriously, they’re so good, and according to the video’s YouTube description, only 12 of these raw talents are music teachers.

The video was posted on YouTube on August 23 and has since racked up over 1 million views, as of Thursday.

Students in West Des Moines better be stoked to return to school after seeing this. With these fantastic educators by their side during the school year, they certainly won’t be on their own.

Bella Hadid on Her Early Modeling Days: “If I Didn’t Book a Job, I Would Cry”

There was a time when the world just knew Bella Hadid as little sister to Gigi, but, my, how things have changed. The raven-haired beauty has joined her sister on the Tom Ford runway and in a steamy Balmain campaign, while also notching her own accomplishments (like a CR Fashion Book spread and Botkier campaign). And while the girls have their own fashion vibes going on, there are plenty of similarities, including a propensity for putting lots of pressure on themselves.

“I’ve always been really hard on myself. If I didn’t book a job, I would cry,” Bella told Editorialist, also admitting to being “so nervous in the beginning.” And sister Gigi also dealt with the same pressure: before she was linked to Victoria’s Secret Pink, she had spent time being bummed out over not booking the lingerie giant’s famous runway show.

According to Bella, her off-duty style has led some people to think of her as a black sheep who rebels and does drugs but, in reality, it’s the furthest from the truth. “I promise I’m a good girl. I never do drugs. I literally order sushi, watch Law & Order, and go to sleep at 9 o’clock every night. I’m a grandmother.”

Plus, that rebellious style? It’s actually a product of moving to New York City and her mother, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster.

“In L.A. I did a lot of vintage flea market dresses and Doc Martens. My mom was like, ‘You’re going to need to tone it down with those floral dresses when you go to New York.'”

bella-hadid-new-york-style

Bella’s standard New York style, on display from earlier this summer, involves a lot of black and ’90s staples (think crop tops, high-waisted jeans, and tiny round sunglasses). Still, the model hasn’t totally abandoned her original style. When she touches down on the West Coast, it’s back to breezy dresses and clunky boots, as evidenced by the outfit she chose for a Beverly Hills stroll with her dad last week.

J.K. Rowling Reveals What Her Horcrux Would Be (If She Had To Make One)

Dear, sweet J.K. Rowling would never want to make a horcrux, of course.

The deed — if you remember from the Harry Potter book series — is accomplished through murder, which splits a wizard’s soul apart, allowing him to conceal a portion of it in an object of his choosing. Lord Voldemort, being a horrible git, created seven of them to achieve immortality. 

So, yes, Rowling would never want to make a horcrux. But if she did, we learned via Twitter on Friday, it’d probably be a tea bag.

Aww, Joanne. The author revealed her choice on the social media platform in a discussion with fans on tea-brewing. For the uncultured heathens non-Brits out there: Heat the kettle, not the mug. Add one tea bag per person, and one for the pot. Milk goes in last.

And never underestimate Rowling’s Twitter presence – she’s notoriously good at responding to fans. Especially if you’ve got a good pun.

Josh Gad Would ‘Jump At The Opportunity’ For A ‘Book Of Mormon’ Movie

A big-screen adaptation of  Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s riotous Broadway hit ”The Book of Mormon” has been rumored for several years, and while there’s nothing new to report on whether it’ll actually happen, Josh Gad would be totally down to take part.

Gad, who originated the role of Elder Cunningham in the play in 2011, dropped by HuffPost Live on Monday with director Chris Columbus to discuss their film “Pixels,” which opens July 24. During the conversation, a fan asked Gad whether he would reprise his part if a film happened, and the actor said he may have aged out of the character.

“Does this look like the face of an 18-year-old, sweetie?” Gad joked.

Answering the question more seriously, the actor said he would “jump at the opportunity” if Stone and Parker wanted him.

“I would actually love to,” he said. “I would read the phone book if Trey and Matt asked me to on film.”

Watch Gad discuss the possibility of a ”Book of Mormon'” adaptation in the video above, and click here to watch the full HuffPost Live conversation with Gad and Chris Columbus.

9 Wedding Vows Divorce Attorneys Would Write For You

They may not seem like die-hard romantics but divorce lawyers are surprisingly well-suited to the job of writing wedding vows. After all, they’ve seen firsthand the types of problems that can chip away at otherwise happy relationships — and know what it takes to stay out of their offices. 

With that in mind, we asked divorce attorneys around the country to share the wedding vows they’d write for engaged couples . See what they had to say below. 

“Watching our wedding video will serve to remind us of how much we want to be together in moments when we take each other for granted. Remembering happy occasions and how we felt that day will help us get through the difficult ones.” — Randall M. Kessler, an Atlanta, Georgia-based divorce attorney and the author of Divorce: Protect Yourself, Your Kids and Your Future

“We’re bound to have disagreements from time to time — but I vow to fight fair. Starting a fight at 2 a.m. when we are both exhausted is not fighting fair. Name calling, eye-rolling, and belittling each other in front of friends and family (or the future children!) is not fair. Physical violence of any sort is never fair (or acceptable.) If we have to fight, let’s at least fight civilly.” – Karen A. Covy, a Chicago, Illinois-based divorce attorney 

“Yes, we may have laughed about our different ideas on raising kids when we were dating, but when our children are born, I promise to work hard with you to develop a unified front on how we parent. Of course there will be some give and take in the process, but I promise to devote time to making sure we are consistent in discipline, diet and school with our kids. This way, I’ll never need to chastise you for your parenting style because there will only be one parenting style: Ours.” Christian Denmon, a Florida-based divorce attorney

“I promise to ride it out with you if life gets dull or boring and not automatically assume there’s something wrong with our marriage. Life is full of dull moments but it’s also full of a lot of fun moments. We’ll experience a little of each and learn to enjoy and embrace it all.” — Caroline Y. Choi, a San Diego, California-based divorce attorney 

 

“It may seem difficult at times but let’s respect each other’s families, including our parents. As imposing, opinionated or needy as some of our family members may be, they helped make us who we are — and showing respect will become even more important if we have kids.”  – Randall M. Kessler  

“Communication is the oxygen of marriage. If something is bothering you, I want you to be able to talk to me about it. (If we’re so afraid of causing a fight and we don’t address our problems as they crop up, our marriage will eventually explode like Mount Vesuvius.) Let’s agree that it’s best for both of us to deal with issues as they arise. I promise to listen to your problems, even if they don’t seem like such a big deal to me.”  – Karen A. Covy  

“Over time, we may have different responsibilities with money in our marriage. Regardless of how we define our roles, I promise to make sure we’re transparent with our finances. I’ll make sure that we both can see income, expenses, assets and debts at any given time. And if the financial numbers tell us a story we don’t like, we’ll do the hard work of working out a financial plan that we both can agree on. I will not allow us to put our heads in the sand until it’s too late.” — Christian Denmon 

“I know it seems counter-intuitive but if we both focus on meeting each other’s needs, we’ll each be happier and that will keep our marriage strong. If we put our future children’s needs first, our own needs will have to be put on backburner and our marriage will weaken. And just to be realistic, if we do end up divorcing, let’s then vow to put our kids’ needs front and center. Doing what is truly best for them and making their needs our top priority will help minimize the trauma of our split.”  – Karen A. Covy  

“Let’s agree to this: Threatening divorce to ‘scare’ each other into doing what we want is not the proper way to converse with each other.  If we use the word divorce, it should only be after all other efforts to resolve our differences have been exhausted. Even then, it should be discussed in a polite, non-confrontational and cooperative way. We each deserve that much.” – Randall M. Kessler

What Wedding Experts Would Have Done Differently For Their Own Big Days

by Jillian Kramer, BRIDES

2015-06-11-1434039356-6527706-toastglassesonplatter_brides_HarryHartman_CNP.jpg

Every bride worries she’ll regret some wedding decisions — and it turns out, even the pros look back on their big days with some regrets. So we asked four wedding planners to share what they’d change about their weddings so that you won’t make the same mistakes!

“I wish we’d splurged on a really kick-ass photographer.”
Janice Carnevale, owner of Bellwether Events, tied the knot on April 1 and embraced the quirky date with her own inventive touches — red and lime-colored linens, argyle-patterned invitations, and a cake iced in chocolate frosting. And while she doesn’t regret her eclectic choices, she does wish she’d spent more on a photographer “and paid for an album up front,” she advises.

“I wish that I had not been chewing gum for the reception.”
Michele Velazquez, co-owner of pop-up wedding planning company The Wedding Bomb, wed in a chic off-white and purple affair in Los Angeles, where a highlight was “these amazing artichoke appetizers filled with garlic,” she says, “so I put gum in my mouth to have fresh breath. But in our wedding video, you can see me chomping away — and I shriek every time I see it!” Velazquez now warns brides to find ways other than chewing gum to freshen breath.

“We didn’t hire a videographer, and I still regret it to this day.”
Courtney Wolf, wedding planner and marketing director of Invision Events, says her blush-hued, formal wedding “was the absolute most amazing day of my life.” But because she and her then-fiancé bore the brunt of the bill for their big day, they made cuts when they questioned whether something was “worth it” — including a videographer. “While our photographer blew us away with the effortless and perfect capture of our day, there is nothing that can compare to hearing our vows or me giggle while I’m getting ready or my husband’s emotion as the church doors open and he sees me as his bride, all in real time,” she says. “I do wish I had that piece of the puzzle, even three years later.”

“I would not have had sparklers!”
Victoria Canada, owner of Victoria Canada Weddings and Events, held a festive affair that featured a Mariachi band and margaritas. The party was so much fun, she recalls, she didn’t want to leave. “I would have kept the bar open and kept dancing,” she says, “but we had sparklers — and our guests had them lit and we pretty much had to run! Now, I actually discourage brides from them.” One thing she doesn’t regret? Saying “no” to an open bar. “Our goal was to have a great honeymoon, and that meant having to make some concessions,” she explains. “So, we did not have an open bar — we had beer, wine and margaritas. I think an extra week on the Mediterranean was worth my friends not having a vodka tonic!”

Teen Who Was Told She Would Never Speak Is Now A Talented Singer

This young woman has something to sing about.

Born with a birth defect, Amber Simone Chinn was not expected to breathe, much less speak, on her own. But now, the 19-year-old is a powerful singer, and a video of her performing has gone viral, WGRZ reported.

Chinn was born with craniosynostosis — a defect in which the joints between the skull bones close prematurely — which led to a procedure at the age of 6 months, from which she was not expected to fully recover, the news outlet reported. Chinn’s parents were told she would never talk, but she beat the odds, calling her recovery a miracle.

At a friend’s graduation party earlier this month, Chinn was caught on camera singing by the pool. The video of her performing “The Worst,” by Jhene Akio, was uploaded to Facebook and has received over 2 million views as of Tuesday.

“It’s hard to grasp,” Chinn told WGRZ. “I have confidence, but I never thought me sitting by the pool, a random video would be so viral.”

Now, the young musician is a student at SUNY Buffalo State and is working with local music producers on an original song. On her GoFundMe page to create a music label, Chinn cites her performance of “The Worst” as a “music video about women empowerment and the need to confront and walk away from domestic abuse.”

Last December, another young woman shared a small musical moment to address a larger issue. Single mom Kimberly Henson uploaded a video of herself singing Sam Smith’s version of Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know” to her baby daughter. Overnight, she reached more than 20 million people on Facebook alone, WLTX reported. In January, she released an original song called “Tiny Hearts” to share her experiences as a single parent.

“I may have taken a different path and missed little things here and there,” Henson told The Huffington Post. “But coming home and being a little person’s superhero means a lot of more in the end.”

This Bride Didn’t Think Her Sick Dad Would Make It To Her Wedding. But He Did.

Andre Pearson never thought he would make it to his daughter’s wedding.

The 61-year-old arrived at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, in March with heart and kidney failure, according to a press release from the hospital. At the time, doctors thought his condition was so bad that he only had one more year to live. He underwent surgery to repair his heart valve and dialysis treatments, which improved his health, but he was told he was still too sick to fly to his daughter Alexandra Price’s wedding. The plan was for him to watch the Palm Springs, California, ceremony Saturday on FaceTime.

But last week, Pearson’s medical team did a reevaluation and decided he was well enough to fly. They told him they were going to send him to the ceremony at Desert Ridge Estate in Indio so he could surprise his girl, according to local TV station KESQ.

“I really didn’t expect it. It came out of left field,” Pearson told The Huffington Post during a phone call Thursday. “I said, ‘No way this could be happening.’ The first thing I thought was Oprah coming out of the hallway. That would’ve been my next thought, that Oprah’s got a trip for me or something. But it was good.”

His surprise was only matched by his daughter’s, who burst into tears Friday when she opened the door of the house where she was staying and saw her father outside.

“Everybody was excited,” Pearson said. “Especially when I was rolled in the wheelchair into the house where she was at and she had no idea that it was coming, but it was all of a sudden tears everywhere. Tears of joy.”

Price was thrilled.

“I knew he wasn’t coming because I knew the circumstances and everything and I just feel shocked; it feels like a dream,” she told KESQ. “It was amazing since he wasn’t supposed to be here. It was just amazing to have him, sickness and all, here and it just made me feel really happy and whole and complete.”

Pearson, the brother of former Dallas Cowboy Drew Pearson, said his favorite part was getting to walk Price, who is his youngest daughter, down the aisle.

“I gave her away at the altar, that was very special, as well. Then I got a chance to go back to my seat and I started crying right there,” he said. Pearson also got a son that day, he said. “My wife and I never had any sons; we have all girls. I told [Price’s husband] that I just gained another son,” said Pearson, who has another son-in-law who lives in Texas. “Now I have two sons and I’m thankful for that. It’s wonderful that they’re the right guys and will take care of my girls, especially my youngest, my baby.”

After successful treatment at the Mayo Clinic, Pearson is now well enough to likely return home to Nebraska within the next month, according to the clinic’s press release.

Here’s What It Would Look Like If Inspirational Quotes Were Honest, Vol. 4

If a tree falls in the woods, and you’re not there to hear it, wouldn’t you want it to fall on that friend who posts WAY too many inspirational quotes on Facebook?

Ah, the inspirational quote. On social media, it’s like a language all its own. Whatever event is happening in someone’s life, their is an eye-catching image and some pretty-fonted words to express the emotion attached to that event. But sometimes these inspirational quotes reach just a bit too far, and they need to be brought back down to earth.

Here are some of those inspirational quotes you’re always sharing, and their more honest translations:

Would You Go on ‘The Briefcase’?

The Hunger Games was supposed to be fiction, but maybe it was prophetic. Now comes The Briefcase, CBS’s new reality show that pits desperate middle-class families against each other for financial survival. This seems more appropriate for dystopian science fiction than contemporary prime time, and the instinct is to kill the messenger: How dare CBS air this garbage?!

My problem with this and other so-called “poverty porn” shows isn’t that television networks are exploiting economic desperation for entertainment. My problem is that it no longer seems strange that middle-class families are a couple of bad breaks from poverty. Being broke is no longer just for the poor. Unless you’re one of the lucky few on the good side of the wealth divide, you could be in the middle class and just barely getting by, hoping to make it month to month.

The Briefcase is like Sophie’s Choice for the financially strapped. Every week, two families experiencing tough times are each handed a briefcase full of $ 101,000 — with one horrible condition. They have to decide how much to keep and how much to share with the other family.

Each family learns about the other’s hardships, so we witness a wrenching decision: However much each family keeps for its own survival is therefore denied to a family all-too-similar to theirs. All the while, the audience — Americans just like them — sits in voyeuristic judgment.

Poverty porn is not limited to our country or our age. Over in Great Britain, where the accents can fool you into thinking that they are made of better stuff, the BBC has a new reality show called Britain’s Hardest Grifter. Over five weeks, 25 unemployed and low-wage workers will compete by doing various jobs. The “least effective workers” will be eliminated after each episode, and the winners get £15,000, which is around $ 23,000.

The drama of watching poor people slug it out for cash prizes might be new to television but it’s been around for years. During the Great Depression, people also enjoyed watching their fellow struggling citizens entertain them by competing in dance marathons, six-day bicycle races, and flagpole sitting contests. The contestants won by enduring misery, but then didn’t everyone back then?

This was also about the time that escapist stories enjoyed a heyday, notably “Little Orphan Annie,” a comic strip that spawned a radio show and two film adaptations during the 1930s. And really, what is The Briefcase but a combination of the humiliation of publicly enduring pain for the promise of being rescued from financial ruin?

If modern-day poverty porn is just the reinvention of a dark period in American history, what’s different here is that the middle-class no longer represents safe harbor from the storm. It used to be that the American Dream was to buy a home, put your kids through college, and retire comfortably. Nowadays, good luck with that.

It’s more than a feeling of insecurity. The American middle class has not gotten a raise since the late 1990s, and the average family’s net worth is lower (adjusted for inflation) than it was in 1989. We’re closer to the edge than our parents were at this age, and it’s stressful. If this rings true to you, you’re not alone. A report by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis found that the middle class is better defined by stress and anxiety than stability and a solid income.

This rings true to me. I barely kept my business open during the Great Recession, but I ended up having to sell the house because the mortgage payments were too much. Things are better now, and debts are getting paid off, but I haven’t taken a deep breath since 2009. Maybe you know the feeling.

As easy as it is to sit in judgment of The Briefcase, it’s harder for me to sit at a remove and watch it happen to other people, because the problems the contestants face aren’t so different from mine that they can’t be solved by a pile of money. The conceit is disgusting and exploitative, but I can’t help wondering how many people like me would go on the show.

Would you?

9 Sex and the City Fashion Things That Would Never Fly in Real Life

While the Glamour staff loves Sex and the City as much as the next girl, we’re constantly chatting about characters’ outfits that made us want to throw the remote (like bra tops and hot pants on a cold fall day). Carrie and crew had some of TV’s best fashion moments, but that still won’t stop the ever-growing list of things that, though fantastic, were totally unrealistic. Nine things we’ve come up with so far:

04-rom-com-halloween-costumes-sex-and-the-city

#1. Small clutches working as everyday bags.
Take a look at the majority of all the ladies’ outfits (there are some priceless Carrie looks here and here) and you’ll notice that, more often than not, everyone’s got tiny clutches tucked under their arms. For most women, the petite size makes an appearance on nights out or at formal events since it’s only really suitable where you don’t need more than a credit card and cell phone. For day-to-day life? Please. Where’s the extra space for snacks, gym clothes, and reading material?

#2. Heels 24/7.
The entire world knows Carrie and the gals love heels, but still…there’s some practicality to consider (especially in New York City). A gorgeous stiletto definitely has its moment, but so do ballet flats, espadrilles, and comfy sneakers. In real life, they would slip on something easier every now and then, especially if the day involved skipping from uptown to down for meetings, shopping trips, and drinks with friends.

#3. A normal salary supporting that shopping habit.
Sure, if Carrie were a high-level investment banker or the CEO of some mega corporation, she could shop like crazy. But as a newspaper columnist? The ability to live alone in a spacious apartment on a tree-lined block, constantly shop for pricey shoes, and wear a designer wardrobe would never happen—even if she had access to all the sample sales in the world.

#4. Miranda’s lawyer clothes.
Viewers got it: Miranda was the serious one with a high-powered job. Still, she spent half the series in boxy suits with bad cuts and, let’s be real: if you had three BFFs who were as into style as her pals, you know someone would have given her some tough love and dragged her to Bloomingdale’s.

#5. Keeping clothes forever.
You know the glorious montage in the movie in which the girls judge as Carrie whips through the history of her closet, trying on all sorts of outfits? It was cute to watch but so not realistic. With the rise of resale and the physical introduction of new purchases, a girl’s forced to weed out stuff every now and then (and not in just one fell swoop).

#6. All the tummy action.
Crop tops are cool now, but back in SATC‘s heyday? Not as much. Between Carrie and Samantha, there was no shortage of midriff-flashing outfits, which, honestly, would have stuck out like a sore thumb.

#7. Absolutely no weather-appropriate shoes whatsoever.
No one ever acknowledged rain much more than opening an umbrella (or holding a newspaper over her head). Where are the wellies or, at the least, simple flats you wouldn’t mind tossing if they were destroyed? For a woman who loved her shoes as much as Carrie, she for sure would have been into taking better care of them. This doubles for snow boots for all four.

#8. Or cold-weather-ready coats.
Throughout all the show’s seasons, a cold winter would have definitely had to strike New York City, meaning the girls should have bundled up a lot more than anyone ever did. Carrie’s beloved fur makes frequent appearances, but paired with bare legs and flimsy dresses (and all the women were guilty of this). Fashion’s awesome, but sometimes a girl needs a long down coat.

#9. The lack of cross-pollination.
In real life, few women fit a style category quite as neatly as Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda did. It’s a storytelling conceit, but let’s be real: If four women spent as much time hanging together as they did, everyone would wind up picking and choosing from one another’s styles, inspired to try and mix it up a little.

This Is What The World Would Look Like If Men Got Periods

The world would be a lot different if dudes had menstrual cycles.

In honor of Menstrual Hygiene Day on May 28, WaterAid, a British organization that brings clean water, sanitation and hygiene to impoverished parts of the world, launched a new campaign called “If Men Had Periods.” As part of the campaign, they created two parodies reimagining the typical tampon commercials if dudes got their periods.

While the parodies have a lighter tone, the campaign hopes to highlight the 1.25 billion women who don’t have access to a toilet during their periods and the stigma women experience during their menstrual cycles.

“Men would brag about them on Facebook, #imonmyperiod would probably trend regularly on Twitter, and tampon adverts would be fronted by celebrities.”

“Every day 800 million women have their period, and yet most of us consider it an embarrassing and taboo subject,” WaterAid’s Chief Executive Officer Barbara Frost said in a press release. “There are even elaborate euphemisms to avoid saying the word ‘period.’ So we have had a bit of fun trying to imagine whether attitudes would be different if men had periods.”

WaterAid believes the universe would be a lot different if men had to experience a monthly period. “If men had periods it would be considered a sign of virility,” a WaterAid press release reads. “Men would brag about them on Facebook, #imonmyperiod would probably trend regularly on Twitter, and tampon adverts would be fronted by celebrities.”

WaterAid surveyed 2,000 people to find out what they thought the world would look like if men had their periods. Almost 80 percent of respondents thought the sports world would change if men had their periodS. Nearly 30 percent of people believed sports commentators would openly discuss how player’s menstrual cycles would affect performance.

Basically, if men had periods there would be nothing shameful about menstrual cycles.

“Menstruation is an important women’s issue. One in three women around the world do not have access to a toilet during their periods and having to find a safe place after dark is both undignified and risky,” Frost said. “Millions more suffer discrimination because of beliefs that they are ‘contaminated’ or ‘impure.’ Stigma about menstruation means women do not seek the help and information they need, while the lack of hygiene facilities in schools is a major reason for young girls dropping out of education when they reach puberty.”

In order to stop this stigma, WaterAid is encouraging people to sign their “Make It Happen” petition to help get everyone access to clean water and toilets around the world.

“Female representation in politics in many parts of the world is still low, so perhaps if men had periods this issue would get the attention that it deserves,” Frost said. “More needs to be done to ‘make it happen’ so that every women and girl has access to water, sanitation and hygiene by 2030.”

Here’s Which ‘Lost’ Character Damon Lindelof Would Send To ‘Tomorrowland’

In Disney’s “Tomorrowland,” Britt Robertson’s Casey discovers a pin that transports her to a futuristic world when she touches it. In the film, directed by Brad Bird (“Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”) and co-written by Damon Lindelof (“Lost”), Tomorrowland is faraway utopia created by the world’s top innovators, artists and scientists.

The Huffington Post asked Lindelof which “Lost” character he would send to Tomorrowland to better mankind’s future.

“I think that I’d probably send Hurley,” Lindelof told us. The fan favorite character would help Tomorrowland with his positive thinking, something largely essential to the movie’s plot, Lindelof explained.

“It’s always just nice to have someone around to lighten things up. He’s got a great sense of humor,” Lindelof said. Hurley “tended to always be the glass half full guy.”

We couldn’t agree more, and we bet Hurley would take full advantage of the jetpacks there.

While working on “Tomorrowland,” Lindelof also spent his time on the upcoming season of HBO’s “The Leftovers.” The series, co-created by Lindelof and inspired by Tom Perrotta’s novel of the same name, follows those who remain after the mysterious, sudden disappearance of two percent of the world’s population. It is one of the bleakest, most depressing shows on television, a stark contrast to the optimistic “Tomorrowland.”

Lindelof said the HBO show “was constantly threatening to infect” his latest Disney adventure. “The gravitational pull of that feeling, [that] darkness and depression, is so much more powerful than the optimistic and bright pull of ‘Tomorrowland,'” he said.

“When you spend time in a creative world like that, it does affect your mood. I was probably not the most pleasant person to live with,” he added.

When “The Leftovers” returns for its second season, at least we’ll have “Tomorrowland” to yank us out of our depression.

Or we can just think more like Hurley.

“Tomorrowland” is now playing in theaters.

Why Chris Harrison Would Never Go On ‘The Bachelor’

Sorry to dash your hopes “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” fans, but host Chris Harrison has no interest in being the next “Bachelor.”

In an interview with HuffPost Live Monday, the host of the ABC reality show said it doesn’t make sense for him to follow in the footsteps of Juan Pablo, Chris Soules and all the rest.

“Here’s the thing about being ‘The Bachelor’: I believe in it and I love the show,” he said. “But I have been producing this show — hosting it and been behind the curtain — for 13 years. To come on and act like I don’t have any knowledge of how this is put together — you have to have a little sense of naiveté and innocence coming into this. I just know a little too much.”

That said, Harrison admitted he hasn’t had much luck dating since splitting from college sweetheart Gwen in 2012. He called himself “tragically undateable” given his busy schedule. (Hey, we still believe in your journey for love, Chris.)

In an interview with GQ magazine earlier this year, the 43-year-old host entertained the idea of having his ex-wife appear as the next “Bachelorette.”

“Now, there’s an idea,” Harrison said. “There’s a part of me, the producer side, that knows it would be epic television, good or bad. It could be like the Hindenburg — the greatest disaster ever — but even then that would be great TV.”

What Tabloid Headlines Would Look Like Without The Sexism

Magazine tabloids tend to treat women like zoo animals instead of people.

Created by college students Erin Valentine and Ashley McGetrick, a new project called “Breaking News: Deconstructing Entertainment Journalism” highlights the rampant sexism in entertainment media by revealing what headlines would look like if tabloids treated female celebrities like real people.

The two seniors at Elon University created the project for their capstone course on women and gender in the media.

“By translating these headlines to be more feminist-friendly, we hoped to call out sexist and unequal cultural influences, especially of celebrities, in the media,” Valentine told The Huffington Post. “Sensationalized tabloid media preys on the female body and an idealized version of ‘womanhood.'”

Headlines involving female celebrities are notorious for objectifying women, Valentine said. From shaming women who go makeup-free to criticizing women for wearing gym clothes, tabloids subject women to a lot of sexism that men rarely experience.

“Whether in line at the grocery store, scrolling through Facebook or flipping through television channels, it is hard to miss headlines worshiping, critiquing or questioning the physiques and lifestyles of female public figures,” Valentine said. “While seemingly harmless, these hyped up headlines attack more than just the people pictured.”

It’s not only the headlines that are implicitly sexist, but the stories written about these female celebrities. Instead of writing about how hard-working Blake Lively is when she attends dozens of events in one day, stories are written about how many outfits she wore.

Valentine noted that consumers do have an impact on these headlines. “They should also acknowledge that they have the power to push back as viewers and as the audience to encourage more feminist-friendly entertainment journalism,” she said.

Check out some of Valentine’s and McGetrick’s feminist-friendly headlines below.

I’m In An Open Marriage And You Would Never Know It

By Gwen & Lark for YourTango

Everyone has a secret. Things we don’t want people to know because we are embarrassed, too proud or too private. We keep secrets because some things are too intimate and special for anyone else to know. But sometimes we keep secrets because we may feel like we will be harshly judged and don’t want to invite the criticism that may follow. Often, we just simply don’t know who we can trust with sensitive information because it might illicit unwanted gossip.

For example, you would never know I have an “open” marriage. I’m not the lady in the 4-inch heels at school pick up that wears skin-tight jeans or has DD implants. I don’t have wild parties where people stagger home with someone else’s spouse because they picked their car keys from a bowl on the coffee table. I’m just another mom who drives a sensible car, does the grocery shopping, wears clothes from Ann Taylor, goes jogging to stay fit — and occasionally has sex with men who are not my husband.

If I ever told you about this part of my life — which I probably wouldn’t unless you were an extremely close friend — your first reaction might be “What? How? But what about your kids?”

Surely, you already have an image in your mind about what an open marriage is.

It’s often mistaken for polygamy, where a man lives together with multiple women like the show Sister Wives or Big Love. Or you might think that it’s a convenient excuse for a husband to have sex with other women without losing the security of having a wife or the social complexities of having a mistress.

What most people who have never experienced an open marriage might not understand is that every open marriage is different. And it’s probably not what you think, unless you know someone personally who has one. (And you probably do, you just don’t know it yet!).

Not everyone in an open marriage is some kind of sex-addicted freak show. Between household duties, raising children and having a meaningful relationship with my husband, I do not have a lot of time to dedicate to having sex with other people, even if I wanted to.

I do not have sex with every man I meet. I do not want to steal your husband. I do not even want to have sex with your husband. I do not have sex at the grocery store or soccer practice or bring strange men into our home.

My open marriage did not start out as such. It was very much closed with a big, iron door and the thought of that ever changing never once crossed my mind in the first 13 years of our marriage. My husband, on the other hand, had been making threesome jokes for at least 10 of those 13 years and often wondered out loud about all the sex he missed out on in his youth.

He grew up in a very conservative family where sex before marriage was considered a sin. I had a similar upbringing but had secretly given in to my desires and had been with someone before I met my husband. I felt incredibly guilty about it because that’s not what “good” girls do.

But eventually the reasons against experimenting sexually with other people were overshadowed by the curiosity — and the exhausting requests by my husband.

We didn’t know exactly how this kind of thing worked, so we took a risk and asked some friends who we thought might know. It’s a delicate subject to broach, but we felt like a few conversations we had in the past left us with some clues that they were, if not in an open marriage, at least open-minded people when it came to sex.

Our hunch was right, and they told us about a place in town where we could go — what you might call a “Swingers Club”. After talking about it for so long, I was ready to at least go and have a look and was excited and nervous to see what it was like. The club itself was dark with a lot of scantily-clad women and sharply dressed men dancing or milling around the bar sipping drinks while lights flashed and stage smoke puffed up from the floor. Some people were sitting on the vinyl couches in a separate area behind the dance floor, chatting and caressing each other.

The beat of the music was pounding as hard as my heart was pumping in my chest. What am I doing here? Am I weird for wanting to know what happens here? Am I depraved? While most people hired a babysitter to go to dinner and a movie, we had left our children at home so we could watch come here and … what?

Pretty much anything goes in a club of that nature, but it’s different for everyone.

For our first foray, we stayed together and only exchanged touches with other couples. We had agreed in advance this was more of a reconnaissance mission than a full-blown invasion into open marriage. But that night things happened — I won’t go into detail out of respect for my husband — that sparked a change in what the both of us wanted and needed in our marriage. Our curiosity (and the subsequent desire to satisfy it) came from a place of safety and security in the relationship we had fostered over the last decade.

It has been a few years since our first visit to that club and our relationship has changed and grown with time, as all relationships tend to do. The rules of our open marriage have evolved and developed over time, where we now both understand what the other person needs ,and we feel comfortable with that.

The key for us is communication and respect. It also means that our relationship comes first. We spend quality time together, we date each other, we clean the house on Saturdays and take the kids to dance and soccer. And occasionally, if one of us is on a solo business trip or a night on the town with friends, that big iron door is flung open and we let ourselves have fun. We’re young(ish), good-looking and in good shape. And we enjoy it when it feels right and safe.

None of our outside experiences are kept private from each other.

We both know what the other spouse is doing, and sometimes we do it together. I’m happy to share with my spouse the details of any sexual adventure I might have, just as he would do for me if I asked (although we don’t always want to know). An open marriage for me means having new sexual experiences without guilt or shame.

As “open” as we are with each other about this aspect in our relationship, we are not open about it with our kids. Just like we don’t talk to them about the complexities of getting a mortgage, why and how we invest our money or what kind of birth control we use, we don’t talk to our kids about this small but delicate aspect to our marriage.

They’re too young to understand that if mom sleeps with the mailman (just kidding — he’s not my type) that that doesn’t mean Mom and Dad are getting a divorce. They don’t understand about commitment, unity or loyalty on the level required when discussing an open marriage. They’re kids — and they need to stay that way.

So they play with Barbies, Legos and fight with each other and don’t ever have to worry about whether Mom and Dad love each other. Because we show them every day when we eat breakfast together or dance around the kitchen or cheer them on that we’re a family and that’s never going to change.

But if the day comes when one of them says to me, “You know, Mom, this one time I heard a rumor… ” I’m not going to lie.

I will sit down with my child and answer any questions they might have and explain that for us, this lifestyle works. Maybe then they will be ready to grasp the idea that you can love someone, spend your life devoted to them emotionally, be best friends, lovers… and have sex with someone else on the side. But until that day comes, I’ll keep the secret between me, my husband and, well, you.

Unomum is our space to explore the many million issues of single motherhood, but it’s also for all the ladies — women stuck in shitty marriages, unfulfilled broads wishing for divorce, and happily coupled former single moms with a shit-ton of wisdom to share.

Lea Michele Remembers Cory Monteith On What Would Have Been His 33rd Birthday

Cory Monteith may be gone, but he’s not forgotten, not by Lea Michele, who is keeping his memory alive on what would have been his 33rd birthday.

On Monday, the former “Glee” actress shared a photo of Monteith sitting behind a drum kit:

Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on July 13, 2013, after he overdosed on a toxic mix of heroin and alcohol. The actor, who was 31 at the time, had been dating Michele for more than a year.

Here’s What It Would Look Like If Inspirational Quotes Were Honest, Vol. 3

You’re inspiring me to death!

There is such a thing as too many inspirational quotes. We’re talking about the scores of quote photos that your most annoying Facebook and Instagram friends incessantly post. At some point, you have to stop being inspired and go out and do that thing you’re inspired to do, right?

That being said, we’re not sure they’re all that effective anyway. If these quotes were being more honest, people would probably hesitate to share them as much. And we’re all for that.*

*Except for these. Definitely share the h-e-double-hockey-sticks out of these.

Aasif Mandvi Details How He Found Out Trevor Noah Would Be New ‘Daily Show’ Host

Longtime “Daily Show” correspondent Aasif Mandvi stopped by “The HuffPost Show” Friday night to talk about his new HBO series “The Brink,” his new web series “Halal in the Family,” and of course, all the changes at “The Daily Show.”

With Jon Stewart signing off in August, and Trevor Noah taking over the host’s desk soon after, Comedy Central’s flagship show will surely look different in the year to come. And as Mandvi put it, “daddy’s leaving, everyone’s kinda freaking out.”

As many people speculated that Mandvi would succeed Stewart as host, Roy Sekoff asked Mandvi how the show delivered the news that Noah had been picked.

“I found out the same way that everyone else on the show found out.” He went on, “You know I have a show, I’m doing ‘The Brink’ and I’m very excited about it, and so a) not even available to do it. I’m an actor at the end of the day and I love doing that. And I wish Trevor all the best.”

For more from Aasif Mandvi on “The Daily Show” changes, watch the video above.

Here’s Which ‘Game Of Thrones’ Character Snoop Dogg Would Smoke Weed With

It’s no surprise that Snoop Dogg is one of the biggest “Game of Thrones” fans outside of the Seven Kingdoms. He raps on the “Lannister’s Anthem” on the “Catch the Throne, Volume II” mixtape, and he even got stoned with Seth Rogen and recapped “GoT.”

But if the Snoop D-O-double-G could blaze with anyone in Westeros, who would it be?

The Daily Beast caught up with the rapper to find out. “Of course Tyrion Lannister! He knows how to party,” Snoop said. (And we totally agree.) Tyrion is also Snoop’s favorite character in the HBO series. But why, you ask? “Cuz he likes to have a good time and party with bad b**ches,” Snoop told the Daily Beast. Yup.

Although Snoop loves “Game of Thrones” with all of his heart, we’re not sure he knows the show is just a show. While talking about his upcoming album “Bush” with the New York Post, Snoop explained why he’s so into “GoT.”

I watch it for historic reasons to try to understand what this world was based on before I got here,” Snoop said. “I like to know how we got from there, to here, and the similarities between then and now.” Yes, that is an actual thing Snoop Dogg actually said about a TV show with dragons and frozen zombies.

But then again, author George R.R. Martin has said his books are heavily influenced by history, and the Red Wedding and even The Mountain vs. The Viper fight were historically based. So Snoop isn’t that far off.

“Game of Thrones” airs on Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET on HBO.

This Possible ‘Harry Potter’ Couple Would Ruin Harry Potter’s Childhood Even More

Harry Potter might want to keep away from the latest edition of The Quibbler.

Following a recent Instagram post, the online speculation is that Harry’s dad, James Potter, aka actor Robbie Jarvis, may be dating Luna Lovegood, aka actress Evanna Lynch. And if Harry’s childhood wasn’t ruined before, it definitely is now:




That photo isn’t all, though. Despite the fact that E! wasn’t given conformation from Jarvis’ reps that the two were dating, other cute photos just seem to add to the evidence. Take this one for example:

Trying on hats with @msevylynch. Which one of us looks better? #fancy

And check out this one where they apparently took Polyjuice Potion and transformed into owls. Nice try, James and Luna, but we know it’s you:

Owls!

A photo posted by Robbie (@awildrobbieattacks) on

So why is this such a big deal? OK, first, let’s skip past the fact that in “Harry Potter,” Luna came in during Ginny’s year and is younger than Harry. Just forget that. But didn’t Harry also take Luna to Professor Slughorn’s Christmas party? Now his dad might be taking her out? Oh, and what about Lily Potter, James? What about Lily?

Voldemort has done some pretty messed up things to Harry Potter before, but this might be crossing the line.

That being said, we wish all the happiness in the world to the potential couple because they are just actors and Harry Potter isn’t real. Or that’s what people want you to believe, anyway.

Representatives for the actors did not immediately respond to The Huffington Post’s requests for comment.

Jon Stewart Tells Dana Perino That Fox’s ‘The Five’ & ‘The Daily Show’ Would Make A ‘Sh*t Taco’

“The Daily Show” is not exactly known as friendly turf for Fox News hosts. But on Wednesday night, “The Five” co-host Dana Perino ventured into what many at her channel might regard as enemy territory.

When Jon Stewart explained that his team was “obsessed” with “The Five,” Perino suggested their programs join forces.

“It’s like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups — peanut butter and chocolate,” Perino said. “Maybe we could all get together here and have a mashup.”

“I think of it more as a shit taco,” Stewart replied. “I’m not saying who’s who. I’m just saying I don’t know that it’s necessarily two great tastes that go great together.”

As he mocked some of her co-hosts, Perino gamely played along. And when Stewart asked about the “dumb guy” on the “The Five,” Perino quickly asked, “Could you be more specific?”

Stewart was referring to Eric Bolling, who Perino noted had a dog named Freedom “after the Freedom Towers, ok, so watch the jokes.”

That elicited an eye roll from Stewart.

“My dog’s named Holocaust,” Stewart shot back. “I’m just saying, you want to have a dog tragedy-off, well, I think I’ve got that covered.”

See the full interview in the clip above.
