Tupperware: SAD LAST DAYS

The iconic plastic kitchen storage container company has been circling the drain for quite some time.

Surprisingly, they still rely mainly on Tupperware Ladies to sell their product.

Problem is, nobody wants to be a Tupperware Lady anymore...let alone host a Tupperware party in their house, with a bunch of neighbor bitches they hate and who never return your Tupperware after they borrow it (and if they eventually do, it's missing the lid).

Is Tupperware going the way of S&H Green Stamps, Woolworth's, "diet pills" and so many other staples of 20th Century American housewifery? Or will people rediscover the old-fashioned charm of the Tupperware party?

If it goes away, will you miss it? Or will you switch to RubberMaid without missing a beat?

What say you, DL?

NBA Playoffs

It's a little early, but I enjoyed other sports threads on DL - especially the playoff/tournament threads.

Although it was a bad season for the Warriors, I think if they beat the Kings in this next game they are still a contender. I think Celtics are still a good bet, even after tonight. Philadelphia. Anyone but Suns.

And this being DL, I have to point out that the Nuggets rookie, Christian Braun, is cute as a button.

King Charles III to go hiking alone in Transylvania

The King will miss the Duke of Sussex’s visit to London next week as he plans to go hiking on his own in Transylvania, The Telegraph understands.

Prince Harry is returning to the High Court in early June as he takes Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) to court over allegations of phone hacking.

However the King’s solo trip to Romania, planned for five days over next week, will coincide with his son’s rare appearance in the UK, meaning the pair are unlikely to see one another.

It comes after the Duke’s flying visit to England for his father’s Coronation earlier this month, where he was in such a rush to get home to California that he was still wearing his medals and morning suit when he arrived for his return flight at Heathrow Airport.

It is understood that the Duke spent the night in Windsor at Frogmore Cottage but did not see his brother the Prince of Wales nor speak with his father or stepmother.

It also follows an earlier surprise trip that the Duke paid to the UK in late March for another phone hacking lawsuit claim, this one against the Daily Mail, during which he did not see the King, who was said to be too busy at Highgrove.

It is now understood that the King’s upcoming trip to Romania will fall next week, during which he will recuperate after his Coronation, and will see him stay in his home in rural Transylvania.

The Queen will not be accompanying him on the trip, preferring instead to remain in her Wiltshire home.

During his annual visits to his beloved Transylvania home, the King is understood to enjoy spending his days hiking in the hills and painting, as well as tucking into a book in the evenings.

King Charles has a long history with Romania, where he now owns at least 10 properties after purchasing his first, an 18th-century Saxon house nestled in the village of Viscri, in 2006.

The surrounding countryside of his Viscri home offers botanical excursions and wildflower meadows for the green-fingered monarch, as well as hiking trails and horseback riding.

There is no wifi, TV or radio in the King’s property, but the drawing room now has a “small hi-fi player with CDs”.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry is expected to give evidence in person at the MGN trial in London early next week, which will pitch him directly against former Mirror editor Piers Morgan, who has become one of the Sussexes’ most vocal critics.

Evidence in his claim is expected to take three days, including opening statements, his time in the witness box, when he will be cross-examined, and MGN’s witnesses.

He is one of a number of high-profile figures bringing damages claims against the newspaper group over alleged unlawful information gathering at its titles.

At the start of the trial, MGN said it accepted there had been unlawful information gathering in relation to the Duke, for which it “unreservedly apologises”.

It denies phone hacking, but said its past activities “warrant compensation” in his case.

The Picture of Dorian Farrow

He's a narcissist, right? Ronan, I mean.

He has always trolled for sex via Instagram, which isn't necessarily bad in any real way, but it has struck me as odd given his career-making hunting of horny men in the MeToo movement. Of course, taking down a rapist like Weinstein is not at all the same as just trolling for dick, but for a while MeToo did seem to be verging on a McCarthyism-type hunt looking for it next target and Ronan seemed all in.

Anyway, since then, Ronan seems to have quickly run out of stories of substance to report on and instead gravitated to the drag world, buddying up to Jinkx Monsoon and other drag queens, and going on various shows including Drag Race where he is always told on camera how beautiful he is.

He just shared this photo of himself, posted by his boyfriend, who captioned it "Get yourself a man who looks this fucking hot."

Ronan is NOT shy about publicizing others' comments about how supposedly hot he is.

I can't think of any other serious journalist who would present themselves this way publicly. Can you? Anderson Cooper did latch onto minor celebrities as a low-level starfucker, and he has posted plenty of 'thirst traps,' but he still feigns modesty and doesn't announce to the world that others find him hot.

It is just such a weird seeming juxtaposition to me, this Pulitzer Prize-winning New Yorker investigative reporter who gratuitously flatters himself online and who has cast a net various times on social media for hookups. I remember years ago, before MeToo, when he had a business trip to Australia and posted an IG story that he was going to be there for 24 or 48 hours and was looking for fun during his downtime and to DM him with pictures.

For one of the figureheads of MeToo, it just seems striking to me that he seems to be such a boldly public admirer of himself because that seems like the same personality type as all the men who put people in compromising situations...

Real Housewives of Atlanta returns on May 7

The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 15 trailer, which is more than three chaotic minutes long, dropped on March 30, 2023, revealing just a taste of the drama expected to unfold this season.

The trailer opens with our Housewives taking a relaxing sound bath, but it quickly turns to chaos. At around the 25-second mark, we see series vet Kandi Burruss shut down Marlo Hampton by saying, “The only reason why I’m crying right now is because I can’t choke your a--, b----h.” (It appears their last-season feud is continuing into season 15!)

The problems for Burruss don’t stop there. She later reveals she used to hook up with Kenya Moore’s current beau. When Moore reveals a pic of her new man, Burruss responds with, “I went on a date with him before. He popped my cherry.” Didn’t see that one coming!

Drew Sidora has plenty of drama this season, too, with the downfall of her marriage to Ralph Pittman. In the trailer, the two are seen going to couple’s therapy, with Sidora revealing that her husband has moved out of their bedroom. The cameras also document the aftermath of their dramatic filing, including the shocked reactions of the fellow Housewives and Sidora breaking down before a confessional, saying, “I can’t do this” when it comes time to talk about the split.

As of this writing, The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast for season 15 includes:

Kandi Burruss

The veteran of the series, she has been on the show for 14 consecutive seasons. The two-time Broadway producer, singer, actress and now podcast host is apparently aiming to achieve the coveted EGOT in season 15. Meanwhile, she still needs to find time for her personal life, while supporting business-partner and husband, Todd Tucker, in his quest to become a respected Hollywood filmmaker.

Kenya Moore

This season, Moore is looking to build on her hair-care mogul status by opening her own hair salon. Meanwhile, the newly-single lady is finalizing her divorce and trying to navigate the dating world at the same time.

Shereé Whitfield

Following the public humiliation caused by her last high-profile relationship, Whitfield is taking another shot at love this season with her new beau Martell Holt. An unexpected health issue throws a wrench in her plans and demands all of her attention, putting her relationship into question.

Drew Sidora

In the new season, Sidora and her husband, Ralph Pittman, are trying to save their failing marriage, until push comes to shove and it all comes to an end—as captured on camera. As her personal life hits a new low, Sidora releases her first album and continues to pursue a career in acting.

Marlo Hampton

This season, Hampton continues to establish her role as “Munty.” She sees a life coach while dealing with teenagers who are taking driving lessons and working summer jobs for the first time. Her dating life hits a snag when her nephews demand approval of any new man in her life.

Sanya Richards-Ross

Coming back for a second season, Richards-Ross is looking to expand both her business and her family, even with an already packed home of nine. Can she and her husband handle the drama that comes with that many people in one house?

Monyetta Shaw

Shaw is back as a Friend and this time she is looking to play matchmaker, specifically for the newly single Kenya Moore. She finds it tough to remain loyal to Kandi Burruss while attempting to building trust with the other ladies.

Courtney Rhodes

This season will see Rhodes joining our favorite cast as a Friend. She is a successful jewelry designer and brand-marketing expert who has a longstanding friendship with Shereé Whitfield. However, Whitfield is not the only Housewife she has ties to: She discovers that Drew Sidora’s estranged husband, Ralph, is her long-lost cousin.

Zoomer confesses: “I get paid a bomb salary to talk to no one, take breaks whenever I want and be an office baddie.”

Sitting around and getting paid to do nothing? A dream job at its finest!

A woman went viral on TikTok after claiming she gets paid the “big bucks” to sit around and do practically nothing at her office job.

The Tiktoker, who goes by the name Dani, bragged to viewers that her “‘lazy girl office job” is simply what she was born for — claiming she gets paid to talk to no one.

“I get paid a bomb salary to talk to no one, take breaks whenever I want and be an office baddie.”

The TikToker was not specific about what the job is or how much she makes.

Aside from boasting about her easy gig, Dani encouraged viewers to find their own “lazy” job.

“Get yourself an office job sis,” the influencer said in the video that’s now garnered over 1.6 million views.

Users under the viral clip flooded the comment section, where some could even attest to their experience working these types of office desk jobs.

“My first job ever and it was honestly the best. I loved being alone inputting invoices, organizing and stuff 😂,” a replier reminisced.

“This is me at my job. I appreciate my job so much 🤍,” another said.

Though for some, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows when it comes to working these “‘lazy girl office jobs” that others seem to love.

Susan Collins (R-ME) paid the price of being hoodwinked by Gorsuch and Kavanaugh? Yeah, she was upbraided by several pundits but her sharpest criticism was that their decisions were "inconsistent" with their testimony and the interviews she had with them.

Actor Danny Masterson Found Guilty Of Raping Two Women

This was the second trial for the 47-year-old actor and Scientologist. Prosecutors said Scientology officials protected Masterson for years after he drugged and sexually assaulted the women. The women, who were also Scientologists, testified that the church barred them from making reports to police.

Jurors deliberated for 8 days before returning their verdict. Minutes after it was read, Masterson was placed in handcuffs and removed from the courtroom while his wife, former actor and model Bijou Phillips, cried, according to the AP. The judge did not announce a sentencing date but said a hearing would be held on Aug. 4. Masterson must remain in jail without bail until then. He could be sentenced to 30 years to life in prison for the crimes.

Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck pay cash for massive $60 million Beverly Hills mansion.

They dropped some serious “Dinero.”

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck bought a massive mansion in Beverly Hills, Calif., for $60.85 million Wednesday after nearly two years of searching for their perfect love nest.

The couple’s 38,000-square-foot new home includes a whopping 12 bedrooms, 24 bathrooms and a full basketball court.

The “On the Floor” singer, 53, and the Oscar winner, 50, paid cash, according to TMZ, and actually snagged a deal, as the property had been listed for $135 million in 2018 before being dropped down to $75 million earlier this year.

The “newly rebuilt” manse sits on a five-acre estate and overlooks “magnificent mountain views,” according to its listing.

“Exquisitely designed and built with impeccable taste, the sophisticated and stylish estate infuses today’s technology with refined rooms,” it reads.

Since J.Lo is known for keeping up with her fitness, she may have been drawn to the residence’s “one-of-a-kind indoor sports complex,” which includes a full gym, basketball and pickleball courts, a boxing ring and a sports lounge and bar.

The home also has a zero-edge pool, a guest penthouse, a caretaker’s house, a 12-car garage and enough room to park a staggering 80 cars on the lot.

Another standout feature for the A-list stars is the security that the property offers, as it includes a two-bedroom guardhouse. The listing describes it as “one of the most private and secured estates in Beverly Hills.” Additionally, both entrances can only be accessed through private and gated streets.

The location is an added bonus, as the home sits just eight minutes from the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel and 20 minutes from the Van Nuys Airport, perfect for jet-setters like Lopez and Affleck.

The listing agent did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

Apparently, the pair couldn’t wait to move in, as paparazzi captured photos of swanky furniture being loaded into the house on the same day that the deal closed.

Lopez and Affleck eloped in Las Vegas in July 2022 and have since merged their families from previous marriages.

The “Shotgun Wedding” actress shares 15-year-old twins Max and Emme with her ex-husband Marc Anthony. Meanwhile, the “Argo” star and director shares three kids — Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 11 — with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner.

The pair’s big move signals that their longtime relationship is going well despite sparking concerns last month after they were seen having a tense conversation on a red carpet.

And a day prior, a grumpy-looking Affleck was caught slamming Lopez’s car door shut during a coffee run.

However, that same month, Lopez praised Affleck for being an “amazing” father.

“Oh, my God. He’s an amazing dad. It brings tears to my eyes,” the pop star said of her husband on “The View.”

She added, “He’s present, and that’s all you can ask: for a present, loving dad who cares and shows up every single day, and that’s who he is.”

His wife, Callie Richards, noticed her husband wake up early that Friday around 5 a.m., but when he did not return to their bedroom to get ready for work, she got up to check on him, according to Colby's cousin, Allison Fox.

"He wasn't in the house, so she checked the backyard … and she noticed that the back gate was open, which was atypical. He never leaves the house that way, and they would never leave the gate open anyway because they have a dog and two small children," Fox told Fox News Digital.

Callie almost immediately felt something was wrong and contacted authorities.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office deployed search teams to the area and "found a water bottle of his near the trailhead in the wooded area with trails and stuff behind where they live," Fox said.

Colby did not take his phone or wallet with him when he left his house that morning.

"Search and rescue, so far, has been out for several days. … We've had everything from people on foot, thermal drones, regular visual drones, people on ATVs, people on horseback and people driving around in their cars checking to see if there are security cameras or doorbell cameras that might have footage," Fox said. "And we've been trying to get the word out to everybody that if they see him, or they see anything out of the ordinary … to call the sheriff's department."

The Richards' home on Musgrove Place in Spring has a backyard with a gate that opens up to a street, and across that street is an entrance to a Greenway Trail where Colby's water bottle was found.

Fox said it was normal for Colby to wake up around 5 a.m. or 6 a.m. for work. He had recently started a part-time job at an engineering firm in the area but also works part-time as a baseball coach – something he's been doing for years.

He "did like to go out" onto the Greenway for walks, sometimes in the morning and sometimes after work, but it was not a regular occurrence, his cousin explained.

She added that the Woodlands is a generally safe area with certain small pockets that people avoid, and she does not believe Colby had issues with anyone who may have been watching or stalking him. "We don't really know," she said. "He's … a very nice guy, and the idea that somebody having a problem with him or whatever is pretty perplexing to us."

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office called off their search in the Woodlands area on Wednesday morning, according to the Richards family. They are continuing to organize volunteer searches in the area.

The family has created a GoFundMe page titled "Help us find Colby Richards" to raise funds for the volunteer search.

Colby was last seen wearing a T-shirt, black shorts and gray Under Armour sneakers.

All About Eve - Bill Simpson?

They just finished showing one of my favourites, "All About Eve" on TCM here. As the credits were rolling, I was surprised to read that Gary Merrill played "Bill Simpson". To my ears, he is clearly and consistently named "Bill Sampson" throughout the movie and also in both of the old-time radio versions I have on Audible (one with Bette Davis as Margo and the other with Tallulah Bankhead). This seems like quite an error (if I'm right, of course) for a big studio to make on an important picture. I took a picture of the end credits screen, but I don't know how to post it here.

Have any of you noticed this or have I been mishearing Simpson as Sampson all this time? I should have checked if "Birdie" (to me) is actually "Burpee" while I was at it!

Melissa McCarthy Reveals a ‘Hostile, Volatile’ Set Left Her ‘Physically Ill’ and the Crew ‘Weeping’

Halle Bailey recently praised her “The Little Mermaid” co-star Melissa McCarthy for teaching her how to speak up and say what works for her on set, but there was a time when McCarthy herself wasn’t always so vocal. In a recent interview with The Observer, McCarthy revealed she once became sick due to working on a toxic set that left many of the cast and crew “weeping.” The experience led McCarthy to realize she can’t remain quiet amid inappropriate working conditions.

“I did work for someone once who ran such a volatile, hostile set that it made me physically ill,” McCarthy said. “My eyes were swelling up, I was absorbing all of this nuttiness.”

“There were people weeping, visibly so upset by this one person,” she added. “And I think that’s why the manipulation worked, because to get to me this person would fire people I loved, which kept me quiet. It was very effective. Then one day, I was like, ‘It stops today!’ I just kept saying to them, it stops, it stops. And I know now I’ll never keep quiet again.”

McCarthy plays the sea witch Ursula in Disney’s live-action “The Little Mermaid.” It’s the Oscar nominee’s first big Hollywood musical. She’ll next return to comedy in a Christmas-themed movie for Peacock.

“It’s a fist fight to try to get comedies made right now. And I don’t know why, because we’ve never needed to laugh more,” McCarthy told The Observer. “Comedy allows you to sit next to somebody whose ideas don’t match up. And maybe you come out a little closer. I think that’s what I’m supposed to be doing in this world.”

“I can’t do a lot of useful things. I don’t know how to clean up the oceans or stop our violent tendencies. But I can hopefully give someone who’s had a bad day an hour and a half to go into a different world where bills or illness isn’t the top thing on their brain,” she added. “That’s the only skill set I really have. So I have to keep trying.”

‘General Hospital’ star Tyler Christopher arrested over ‘intoxicated’ airport nap: report.

Actor Tyler Christopher was arrested after allegedly passing out drunk at a South Carolina airport Friday.

The “General Hospital” star, 50, was handcuffed after cops received reports of a man snoozing on the ground at the American Airlines terminal, TMZ reports.

Cops told the outlet that the incident was alcohol-related, and officers proceeded to approach the actor and wake him.

He ultimately missed his flight and was booked for public intoxication, the outlet adds.

Christopher reportedly displayed clear signs of intoxication and was “unable to care for himself.”

Page Six has reached out to Christopher’s reps for comment.

It’s not the first time he’s had a run-in with the law for a similar instance.

In November 2019, he spent his 47th birthday behind bars when he was arrested for public intoxication at his residence in Martinsville, Indiana.

TMZ reported at the time that an Uber driver called the police after he dropped off Christopher at home, and the actor was allegedly passed out and urinated himself.

He was accused of “harassing, annoying or alarming another person” while in a state of intoxication caused by alcohol or a controlled substance.

It was his second public intoxication incident that month.

Christopher is best known for playing Nikolas Cassadine on “General Hospital” from 1996 to 2016. He is also known for his role of Stefan DiMera on “Days of Our Lives.”

Christopher is married to auto racing pit reporter Brienne Pedigo. They share a 10-year-old son, Greysun James, and a 4-year-old daughter, Boheme.

He was previously married to “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria from 2002 to 2004.

It comes just weeks after “General Hospital” star Haley Pullos was arrested after allegedly driving under the influence and causing a car accident that left one person severely injured.

The actress — known for playing Molly Lansing-Davis on the ABC show — drove into oncoming traffic on a freeway in Pasadena, Calif., on April 29, according to a police report obtained by TMZ.

She was reportedly going 60 mph when she swerved and flew over a barrier before hitting another car head-on.

Pullos, 24, was stuck inside her totaled vehicle and unable to exit when authorities arrived, according to the outlet.

by Anonymousreplies 51June 1, 2023 11:26 PM


A couple months ago a friend came down from a neighboring state to help me upgrade my filmed entertainment options. She installed the device she told me to buy and showed me everything I need to know and cooked our meals and was just an amazing help and companion for those few days.

I paid for her flight and all food and picked her up and dropped her off at the airport, which is approximately 1.5 hours away from where I live. I’m an alcoholic (sober for 38 years), while she was an active alcoholic at the time but is now sober, she tells me. When she was here she asked me to drive her to a liquor store so she could buy booze. She kinda sorta asked if that’d be okay and I said yes, because I told her she didn’t get sloppy when she drank so I wouldn’t mind. (I minded more than that because wtf, you can’t go a whole night sober out of respect for my sobriety in my own home, but I wanted peace and let it slide and it was fine. She holds her booze well.)

All of which is to say: I think we had an even deal.

Here’s the thing (tl;dr, I know). Since she left I have not been able to find my second-favorite coffee cup. I’ve even looked under the couch. It’s not in the microwave. I have the most bizarre suspicion that she took it.

I can’t think of a single way to approach the issue that isn’t just appalling. “Did you pilfer my coffee cup” seems to me to be an impossible sentence to ever utter. The cup is not irreplaceable. It’s from Denny’s and I have great affection for that chain because when I’m topped out with the amount of change and variables and unfamiliarity that are all natural parts of road trips, which I take all the time, I can go to a Denny’s and feel something a little like being “at home.” So, I like the cup. (Although it was second favorite to the cup that symbolizes my first lesbian relationship.)

Anyway, I guess I have to just shrug it off or go get a replacement, but I both do and don’t want to shrug off the friendship. If she stole the cup, she’s not a friend! But what if it’s still around here somewhere? Or what if she accidentally broke it and covered up the accident? If I ask her if she took it and she’s sane and innocent, the implication that I harbored suspicions that she isn’t sane and innocent would seem likely to blow our friendship to smithereens.

Fans slam ‘thirsty’ Kendall Jenner’s boob-baring dress: ‘No class’.

You can’t spell “classy” with a K.

Fans are calling Kendall Jenner “thirsty” for sporting a black David Koma minidress with a sheer bodice accented by a pair of strategically placed floral “pasties” while yachting in Europe.

After Jenner, 27, was spotted in the nearly nipple-freeing number on Wednesday, social media users sounded off on her skin-baring style.

“Why are these girls so needy?” one asked in response to a Page Six tweet showcasing Jenner’s look, as another called the 818 Tequila founder “thirsty.”

“No class or decorum,” a third critic wrote.

“In what world do people think this looks good?” a fourth critic questioned.

A fifth person even compared the look to Regina George’s cutout tank top from “Mean Girls.”

After Page Six shared a video of Jenner in the titillating LBD, commenters similarly dubbed the dress “ridiculous” and “unflattering.”

One person on Twitter compared the reality star’s ‘fit to Regina George’s in “Mean Girls.”

“IS THAT EVEN A DRESS or an UNDRESS?” one asked.

But not everyone disliked Jenner’s racy number.

“Stunning!!! Go queen,” one fan tweeted, while a second praised, “When Kendall eats she EATS.”

The mixed reviews surely won’t stop the reality star from continuing to take risks with her wardrobe. Jenner regularly rocks see-through styles, including during nights out with her rumored beau, Bad Bunny.

The “Me Porto Bonito” rapper seemingly likes Jenner’s sultry style, too. Just last month, the duo was spotted going on two different dates in coordinating outfits.

Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida was mingling with voters on Thursday after his first campaign stop in New Hampshire as a presidential candidate when a reporter asked him a question: “Governor, how come you’re not taking questions from voters?” Mr. DeSantis sharply disputed the premise of the reporter’s question. “People are coming up to me, talking to me,” he said. “What are you talking about?” But Mr. DeSantis did not leave it there. “Are you blind?” he asked. “Are you blind? OK, so people are coming up to me, talking to me whatever they want to talk to me about.”

I just started Ozempic. - Ask me anything

I am on week two of Ozempic. Brief history was always a fat kid, Low carb diet in my early 20s got me fit and weight training helped me build muscle. I switched to a keto diet while trying to go vegetarian. I have a history of high blood sugar and hypertension I have been able to control through diet but covid hit and I got fat. I inhaled carbs when and stopped working out until I went to the ER with a nosebleed that would not stop. My BP was sky high, by ac1 was 8 something. I went on BP meds and Metformin. The metformin did a number on my stomach and my shits were pretty much liquid from then on. I lost weight by picking up my low-carb life (keto and type 2 is not a good combo) and adding in Chicken and eggs as my protein source. I had small success but my blood sugar remained high, even when I was cutting out all sugars.

Enter Ozempic. It is fully covered by my insurance. I am still on my .25mg dose and on week two. So far no side effects other than I get full easily. So if you are curious ask me anything I and I will update this weekly with my progress. Two weeks in I am 12 pounds down from when I started. I am not trying so far. It's weird, I have had to fight my whole life to stay normal weight. Now it seems to be falling off without even trying.

TRANS MELTDOWN ON WHEELS: British Cycling decides that female events will be for females only

Miss Emily Bridges, formerly Zak Bridges, is most unhappy and has talked of LITERAL VIOLENCE AND GENOCIDE at not being allowed to compete in women's races and instead be eligible for the new trans inclusive "open" category alongside other male athletes.

Miss Emily Bridges said

[quote]This is a violent act. British Cycling are supporting this, they are furthering a genocide against us. Bans from sport is how it starts, look at what is going on in America. It starts with sports bans, then youth and general healthcare and then bans from public life through bathroom bans. Just look at the situation, and who is on your side. When literal Nazis, conspiracy theorists and those who want our eradication are on your side, surely that should give you pause?

It's a good day for all the women who have spoken out, and who made it clear last year they would not race with a male cyclist in their events.

HR closed a training loophole, and I'm partly to blame

We have that shitty training where you watch some dumb generic videos that talk about "our company" but never actually name our company. Then you take a test.

For years, I have used the hearing-impaired version, because you could go through the training much faster. And for years, I have been talked to by HR about my time spent in the courses being too short even though I passed all the tests the first time. HR would say that we may have to change it in the future if people like me didn't spend more time on a screen before moving on. And the inevitable response to my "but I passed the training each time" was "but did you actually learn it in a thoughtful way?" or some such nonsense.

This year, HR forced the length of the hearing-impaired version to match the regular audio and video version. No more fast training.

Hot Maryland dad beaten to death by angry mob for protecting his kids from bullies

Police secured arrest warrants for the angry mob accused of beating a doting Maryland dad to death while he protected his kids from bullies over a $30 dispute, a source told The New York Post.

A second source told the news outlet that the suspects could be charged some time this week.

The warrants stem from the brutal melee on Friday, May 19, when Christopher Wright, 43, suffered brain damage after three teenagers and two adults confronted his 14-year-old son at their Brooklyn Park, Maryland, home to continue a schoolyard fight.

He was rushed to a hospital and died the next day. Wright's fiancée, Tracy Karopchinsky, told 11 News that the attackers turned their attention on Wright after he refused to let them fight the boy. The group told Wright that if the boy would not fight, they would fight with him instead, she said.

Footage of the fatal fight reportedly shows Wright fending off the suspects before they threw him on the ground and pummeled him, according to The New York Post. First responders tried to save him on scene and rushed him to the hospital, but it was too late.

"Just looking at the damage, that wasn’t just punching that did that," his fiancée said. "Like, there’s no way that punching did that. The damage was done before the ambulance ever took him away.

"He’d had a seizure. It was done. There was nothing the hospital could do."

The school confirmed the fight to 11 News, and Karopchinsky told the outlet about how her 12-year-old had tried to run out into the street to help Wright, but it was "too late."

A neighbor told local newspaper Baltimore Banner that they heard one of Wright's other sons yelling, "Daddy!" while the suspects took off.

"That little kid’s scream is a scream that you’ll never forget," the resident said. "It was ear-piercing, his scream was. It was awful."

The whole ordeal was allegedly sparked by a $30 dispute, Karopchinsky told The New York Post.

Police listed the suspects as three to four White males in their mid-20s to mid-30s in age.

After the fight, Anne Arundel County Police spokesperson Marc Limansky said, "Anyone who assisted, who abetted or was an accomplice of the main suspect or the primary suspect will be culpable."

I really wish we had a BLOCK feature where if I blocked someone, I would no longer see their posts and they couldn’t see mine. Because they are really people I don’t want to interact with at all and I don’t want them seeing my posts anymore.

Muriel, can we get a proper block feature?

But since reading things here in threads where maybe one poster is posting half the comments and they are all ignored is frustrating, like listening to someone talk on the phone about something that involves you but you can only hear one side of the conversation.

So I’m considering unblocking all 195. I’ll release the Kraken!!

Please give me your advice. I’ll do what the poll tells me to do.

Lizzo is not trying to change her body; she’s trying to scroll social media without seeing disparaging comments about it.

Though that doesn’t seem like a hard ask, the Grammy winner, 35, often finds herself clapping back at trolls who use their small platforms to shame her for her weight.

Most recently, Lizzo went off on one specific hater who tweeted a video of her performing and wrote, “How is Lizzo THIS fat when she’s constantly moving this much on stage?! I wonder what she must be eating 🤣.”

“I JUST logged on [on this] app and this is the type of s–t I see about me on a daily basis,” the “Truth Hurts” singer replied Wednesday. “It’s really starting to make me hate the world.”

“Then someone in the comments said I eat ‘lots of fast food,'” she went on. “I LITERALLY STOPPED EATING FAST FOOD YEARS AGO.”

The Yitty shapewear line founder said she’s “tired of explaining” herself and “seeing [her] name in some bulls–t.”

In response to someone who claimed that Lizzo doesn’t want to change her appearance because her size is “her brand,” the hitmaker fired back, “I’m not trying to BE fat. I’m not trying to BE smaller. I’m literally just trying to live and be healthy. This is what my body looks like even when I’m eating super clean and working out!”

Brianna Keilar has a new show and she does not like seaweed

As a kid she had dreams of being a fighter pilot, and now Brianna Keilar is getting ready for takeoff with a new show at CNN.

Keilar is one of three anchors — alongside Boris Sanchez and Jim Sciutto — taking the helm of “CNN News Central,” the new 1 to 4 p.m. programming block making its debut on the network on April 17. CNN says the show will have the feel of its coverage on special election nights and will serve as the “core hub of the network’s best-in-class newsgathering operation during the day.”

Keilar, who had been on the early bird shift until late last year before the revamped show, “CNN This Morning” was launched, says she digs afternoon anchoring duties: “I really like it, especially as a Washington person, because so much is happening, and it feels like the news is alive and everything’s moving.”

—- What did you want to be when you were a kid? I wanted to be a fighter pilot — mid [1980s] I wanted to be a fighter pilot because I saw ‘Top Gun.’ By the time I was in high school, I didn’t realize this, but I actually looked back on some scholarship application… it said that I wanted to be a news anchor. Now I don’t know if I understood what news anchor versus reporter was. By the time I got to college, I was majoring in psychology and mass communications. I was sort of torn between being a psychologist and doing news, and I ended up interning at a television news station and loving it. It was like being struck by lightning, and so that’s what I was going to at least try to do.

Favorite hobby: I really like cooking. And I’m trying to get back into golf, which is something that I’ve done since I was a kid but has fallen by the wayside since I’ve had children. And I think it’s time that I get back out there.

— I have a fear of: Seaweed wrapping around my foot when I’m swimming in the ocean. It’s an intense fear and it’s lifelong: ‘What is that? Is that seaweed? Is that a fish? Is that Jaws?’ I actually do love the ocean … But weirdly I’m grossed out by very little. I’m here to kill a spider. I’m here to get dirty with my kids. Very little grosses me out, but that for some reason just really does a number on me.

[quote]The shocking confession was made during a Russian state press conference, where Reade was sitting next to alleged Kremlin spy—and pal—Maria Butina. Reade told the pro-Putin press the “very difficult” decision to move came after the realization that she no longer feels safe in Biden's America.

Fare thee well, Cameron...Search Called Off, he's presumed dead

A multi-day search for a Louisiana teen who jumped from a sunset cruise in the Bahamas has come to its tragic end -- and the last known sighting of him was caught on harrowing video.

Footage has surfaced showing 18-year-old Cameron Robbins -- who'd just graduated high school in Baton Rouge -- swimming in the open seas at night near Athol Island last week ... where he was on a sunset cruise with a bunch of his peers celebrating their achievement.

Word is Cameron went overboard on his own accord, and not just that -- but, apparently, it was on a dare. In the clip, you can kinda tell his buddies were getting a kick out of it.

That is until he vanished behind the boat and out of view of everyone, who began screaming at him to grab a life preserver that'd been thrown to him -- which was pretty far away, and he didn't end up reaching it. Once he disappeared, everyone began to panic.

Since he went missing, a multi-day search was undertaken by both Bahamian authorities and the U.S. Coast Guard -- but Robbins was never found, and the search has now been called off after several unsuccessful days of scouring the area for any sign of him.

It sounds like Cameron is presumed dead, as the Coast Guard issued a statement saying ... "We offer our sincerest condolences to Cameron Robbins' family and friends." His family flew into the Bahamas last week, and prayer vigils have been held for him for a few days now.

His family has also spoken out ... "The Bahamas government has called off the rescue for Cameron and we are returning to Baton Rouge. We want to thank the Bahamas government, the U.S. Coast Guard, the United Cajun Navy, and Congressman Garrett Graves for everything they have done for us. In this time of grief, we thank our family, friends, and well-wishers for granting us the privacy we need to properly remember our son and mourn his loss."

Can someone explain the Philip Schofield "Scandal" to me?

I'm American, but I've occasionally watched a clip from This Morning on YouTube when they've had a guest on whose interview I've been interested in (Miriam Margolyes, Dame Edna etc.)

I keep getting served endless articles about this British morning TV scandal on Facebook, but none of them really provide any detail on what's actually happened. In FB comments there are hundreds of comments from Brits insinuating that Schofield had done something... disreputable, potentially illegal. It reads like thinly veiled homophobia. I know his BROTHER was convicted of child abuse, but, as far as I can tell Phillip has no association with those crimes.

Is the scandal really just that two hosts had fallen out and that forced ITV to choose between them? THAT is what this is all about? Am I missing something??

Bill Cosby is being sued for another alleged sexual assault ... a woman says he forced himself on her after giving her two pills that made her feel helpless, but Cosby insists there are holes in her account.

According to a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, former Playboy model and noted Cosby accuser Victoria Valentino claims he took advantage of her back in 1969, when she was trying to make it in Hollywood.

Valentino says she first met Cosby in his studio trailer after an audition and told him about the recent death of her 6-year-old son. She says Cosby ran into her at a Los Angeles restaurant later that year, offering to pay for a spa treatment for her and her friend after noticing her crying at the dinner table.

n the docs, VV says Cosby told her and a friend he would treat them to dinner after their spa day ... but she says the dinner meeting turned into a nightmare.

She claims Cosby put pills next to their drinks and told the women the pills would make them feel better, pretending to ingest one himself. She says she and her friend took the pills, and it wasn't long before she was struggling to stay awake.

In her suit, Valentino says she told Cosby she wanted to go home and he escorted her and her friend to a car, offering to drive them home. She says she felt nauseated and dizzy in the backseat as Cosby instead drove them to his office, where she claims a sexual assault occurred.

Valentino says her friend passed out on a couch in Cosby's office and she sat down on another couch and closed her eyes ... and when she opened them she saw Cosby sitting next to her friend, staring with a "predatory intensity" and an erection.

Thoughts and prayers for TALLULAH WILLIS : diagnosed with borderline personality disorder

Tallulah Willis was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder after seeking in-patient treatment.

The “The Whole Ten Yards” actress wrote in an essay for Vogue that her parents, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, stepped in and sent her to Driftwood Recovery in Texas in June 2022 after her fiancé, Dillon Buss, ended their engagement and she started struggling with anorexia again.

It was there that she was diagnosed with BPD.

“I was introduced to a variety of therapies, my medication was retooled, and I was given a new diagnosis: Borderline Personality Disorder, an illness that impairs the ability to regulate emotions and find stability in relationships,” the 29-year-old explained.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, borderline personality disorder is a “mental health condition” that causes people to have “extreme mood swings, unstable relationships and trouble controlling their emotions.”

Tallulah said she was treated and left Texas four months later feeling “a lot better.”

“I realized that what I wanted more than harmony with my body was harmony with my family — to no longer worry them, to bring a levity to my sisters and my parents,” she explained.

Danny Masterson found guilty of two counts of rape in second trial

A Los Angeles jury found “That 70s Show” actor Danny Masterson guilty of two out of the three counts of rape on Wednesday.

Masterson, 47, was tried for a second time over charges he had had raped three women at his Hollywood Hills home in the early 2000s.

The jury deliberated for more than a week before reaching their verdict, finding him guilty in two instances but being hung on a third count.

Jurors convicted Masterson of sexually assulting victims Jen B. and N. Trout, but were unable to reach a verdict on the allegations against the actor’s former girlfriend, Christina Bixler.

Jurors in the first trial deadlocked in November but in the second trial, Judge Charlaine F. Olmedo allowed more evidence to be heard, including testimony that Masterson had drugged his victims before sexually assaulting them.

During the first trial, the accusation of drugging could only be implied when the women each testified they felt disoriented or lost consciousness.

Britney Spears Will Allow Sons to Move to Hawaii with Kevin Federline

Britney Spears has agreed to Kevin Federline's request to move with their sons.

The singer has "consented" to her children Sean Preston, 17, and Jayden James, 16, moving to Hawaii with their father, Federline's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan tells PEOPLE.

"It's an opportunity for Kevin and his wife, and the boys are ready to get away from the L.A. microscope," he says.

A source confirms to PEOPLE that the former dancer, 45, first reached out to his ex-wife, 41, earlier this month for permission to move. "Britney has always faithfully supported her children and wants them to be happy," says the source.

The boys, who reside with Federline, will move with their dad, wife Victoria Prince, and their two children — Peyton, 8, and Jordan, 11. Federline cites additional professional opportunities for himself as a result of the move and a job offer for Prince from a Hawaiian university.

The move is set to occur during the summer, with Preston graduating before it transpires. Jayden is able to finish his final year of high school remotely.

In a revealing interview with The Daily Mail in September, Jayden discussed his and his brother's mixed feelings about their relationship with their mom.

While things are complicated, Jayden said, "I 100 percent think this can be fixed."

"It's just going to take a lot of time and effort. I just want her to get better mentally," he continued. "When she gets better I really want to see her again."

Speaking directly to his mom, Jayden said, "I love you a lot, I hope for the best for you. Maybe one day we can sit down like this and talk again."

Vanderpump Rules’ Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix Split Amid Raquel Leviss Cheating Allegations

It's over. Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix split after nine years together, a source confirms to Life & Style. The couple sparked breakup speculation following rumors that Tom allegedly cheated with Raquel Leviss.

TMZ was the first to report the news on Friday, March 3. Tom, 39, and Ariana, 37, decided to call it quits shortly after finding out that the Schwartz & Sandy’s cofounder was allegedly unfaithful during their relationship and hooked up with Raquel, 28, the outlet reported. VPR producers heard about the pair’s breakup and documented the full cast’s reactions

Ariana appears to have deactivated her Instagram shortly after news broke of their split. Both Tom and Raquel's social media accounts, however, are still active.

Fellow VPR costar and Raquel’s ex-fiancé, James Kennedy, reacted to the news of Tom and Ariana's reported split via his own Instagram by resharing TMZ's article to his account.

"Hope you all feel as sick as I do. This explains everything," James, 31, wrote in a comment under his post. He then responded to a separate commenter, writing, "Read it and weep. Tom's a f—king creep!"

Pentagon leaders cancel drag show at a Nevada Air Force base

Defense Department leaders have stepped in to stop a drag show scheduled for Thursday at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, according to two defense officials and a U.S. official.

The show, which was in celebration of Pride Month, was approved by Air Force leaders, but Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, told the Air Force it is not Pentagon policy to fund drag shows on bases and the show should be canceled or moved off base.

Drag shows and events on military bases have become a politically contentious issue in recent months, with conservative politicians and pundits arguing the military should not be spending taxpayer money on them.

At a House Armed Services Committee hearing on March 29, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., angrily questioned Austin and Milley about drag queen story hours on bases around the world, including in Montana, Nevada, Virginia and Germany.

“Drag queen story hours is not something that the department funds,” Austin told the committee.

Milley chimed in, asking to see the flyers for the events Gaetz was referring to and saying he was not aware of such events and does not support their being held on military bases.

“I’d like to take a look at those, because I don’t agree with those,” Milley said.

When Milley was informed about the event this week, he was visibly angry about the decision to host the event on base, a U.S. official and a defense official said.

“Consistent with Secretary Austin’s congressional testimony, the Air Force will not host drag events at its installations or facilities. Commanders have been directed to either cancel or relocate these events to an off-base location,” an Air Force official said when asked about the Nellis event.

“Per DoD Joint Ethics Regulation (JER), certain criteria must be met for persons or organizations acting in non-Federal capacity to use DoD facilities and equipment. As Secretary Austin has said, the DOD will not host drag events at U.S. military installations or facilities. Hosting these types of events in federally funded facilities is not a suitable use of DOD resources,” deputy press secretary Sabrina Singh said in a statement.

The Nellis drag show was scheduled for Thursday, but the base commander was informed in the past few days that it must either be canceled or moved off base, the officials said.

“I can confirm the Nellis commander informed the private organization that the drag event would have to be canceled or relocated to an off-base location,” a source familiar with the matter said.

Nellis AFB hosted a Pride Month drag show in June 2021, named “Drag-u-Nellis.” A spokesperson for the base said in a statement that it was intended to promote inclusivity and diversity.

On May 23, Gaetz sent a letter about the issue to Austin and Milley, detailing six other cases of drag shows or events on bases or approved by the U.S. military. Gaetz asked the Pentagon leaders to provide information about the events and to say whether any punitive action has or will be taken against anyone who used taxpayer money on them.

Armie Hammer will not be charged with rape in L.A. County ... as the District Attorney's Office says it could not prove the allegation beyond a reasonable doubt.

As we've reported, this case has dragged on for more than 2 years as police said they were continuing to investigate -- but the D.A. says the case was just too murky, partially because of the "complexity of the relationship" between the accuser and Armie.

Prosecutors also say they couldn't "prove a non-consensual, forcible sexual encounter" had occurred between them. This has been going on since February 2021 ... when the accuser, Effie Angelova, first reported her allegations to police.

I have this childhood friend who now and then judges me or misconstrues my words, to the point other friends think it's odd. We'll have a good time and later I'll find out he said something weird behind my back.

I've dug up and kept my own tomato garden, so I don't know where the anger's from or what he's on about.

So, I had My First Visit by My New Pool Boy. There Might Be a Problem Here...

A few hours ago, I had my first visit from my new pool boy. Yes, he is very handsome. He's quite muscular and well-built. He's also a Personal Trainer. But that is not why I hired him. I hired him because of his professionalism, and he fit my budget... I think...

Anyway, he rang the doorbell to let me know that he had arrived and would get straight to work. Fine. I showed him to my pool and returned inside my house. About 10-15 minutes later as I peered out of my window to monitor his work I was taken aback because this young man (about 23-26 years old, I assume) had nearly totally stripped off all of his clothing and was wearing just a black low-cut thong! I didn't know what I should do! But I just stared and watched as he did his job. He was quite diligent and worked non-stop while only listening to his music as he worked. When he was done, he just put his clothes back on and not too long after my doorbell rang again. It was time to pay him.

Well... again, he was quite professional and let me know that he had finished and would I like to inspect the job. I told him no and that I trusted his work. I dare not mention his attire during the job. Therefore, I paid him and gave him a very large tip of which he was astonished by (and even mentioned that such generosity wasn't necessary) but I insisted. He was very appreciative. He then asked what type of service contract I would like. Would it be weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly? I honestly could not decide at that moment but requested that he book me for next week at about the same time and I would have an answer then. He professionally took out his phone, scheduled me, and told me that a confirmation will be coming my way via email and/or phone. Then he left smiling and letting me know that he will see me next week. If not, he knows how to get to the pool.

Here are my concerns;

-Should I mention to him about his dress while cleaning my pool?

-What will my neighbors think if they are on their second or third floors and peer out their windows while looking into my yard?

-Would I be reading too much into this if I thought this might just be a bait technique by an "escort" to lure people into requesting "additional" and more "expensive" "services"?

-Would it be too forward to offer him the use of my pool, in-house shower, etc if he wanted and/or needed it?

-Would I have to consistently pay him a generous tip?

There are just so many questions that I have! I don't know how to answer or approach them!

Do you folks have any suggestions?

Kylie Jenner caught lying about following safety protocols at makeup lab.

Kylie Jenner was caught defying safety protocols at her makeup manufacturing facility despite stating otherwise in August 2022.

During Thursday’s episode of Hulu’s show “The Kardashians,” the makeup mogul was visiting the facility located in Milan.

While in the lab, she was gloveless and her long hair was loose as she hand-mixed a Kylie Cosmetics concealer. At one point she even placed a beaker up to her lips and said, “I kind of want to drink it.”

In another instance, Jenner took used a spatula to smear a product on the back of her gloveless hands before placing the cross-contaminated tool back into the beaker.

Other employees at the lab could be seen observing the mom of two as they donned full lab gear, including hair nets and face masks.

The 25-year-old was previously put on blast after she posted Instagram photos at the manufacturing facility.

“In the lab creating new magic for you guys 💕 better than ever,” Jenner wrote via Instagram in August 2022 alongside photos of her in the facility.

Several followers expressed concerns that Jenner’s long, black hair would end up in their products.

Cosmetic developer Kevin James Bennett took to his own Instagram to slam Jenner and the manufacturing facility for allowing the makeup mogul to interact with products without following “proper sanitation protocols.”

In a since-deleted comment, Jenner defended herself on Bennett’s post, writing, “Kevin — this picture is not taken in a manufacturing facility. i would never bypass sanitary protocols and neither would any other celeb or beauty brand owner.”

However, Jenner seemed to confirm that she was, in fact, at the manufacturing facility in the latest episode of the Kar-Jenner reality show when she said, “I just think it’s really important to see my makeup being made.”

A source exclusively told Page Six at the time of the social media drama, however, that Jenner was not on the production floor when the pictures and videos were taken.

According to the insider, she was simply reviewing colors and ideating on new concepts.

“The Kardashians” airs Thursdays on Hulu.

Kim Kardashian Crosses Picket Line Into American Horror Story: WGA Strike

Kim, there’s people that are striking. Kim Kardashian reportedly crossed the Writers Guild of America picket line to film the upcoming season of American Horror Story. “Sad to report that Kim Kardashian crossed our midtown picket line today,” WGA strike captain Warren Leight tweeted on May 31. “Ushered past us into a freight elevator in her chauffeured Escalade. Writers aren’t keeping up, but Kim Krossed Our Line.” He later added that, though working actors are required to act through June 30, which means she is not scabbing (or, in her case, skabbing), Kardashian had leverage that she did not use. “We set up a line, she was driven past it into a waiting freight elevator,” Leight told the Daily Beast. “Building security guard put on a bulletproof vest, which seemed over the top.”

AHS creator Ryan Murphy has shown his support for the striking writers by contributing to a $1.7 million relief fund. The upcoming 12th season of AHS, which itself has been to the bargaining table when fans unionized, is subtitled Delicate and will be based on Danielle Valentine’s novel of the same name. The show has been filming in New York since April, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The WGA previously shut down production on the season on May 3, according to WGA member Kaitlin Fontana. Vulture reached out to Kardashian and FX for comment. If the reality star’s a SAG member, maybe she’ll be seen striking a pose on the front lines for its potential strike?

New York in movies

I love the aesthetic of Sweet Smell of Success and this long gone era of New York during that period. I guess Mad Men touched on it but reminded me more of a studio effort like The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit and The Best of Everything. I think Shadows captured the same mood and atmosphere as Sweet Smell of Success and one can imagine Steve Dallas and Susan Hunsecker hanging in the same circles as the characters in Shadows. I think The Greenwich Village Story from the 60s also managed to capture a similar mood.

Have there been any others? I love the smoky nightspots, the fashions- the long coats on the handsome well dressed men, Broadway after dark. In recent times I think Bright Lights, Big City also captured some of the mood I like too.

Harrison Ford, 80, and Calista Flockhart, 58, attend rarely seen son Liam’s graduation.

I remember when Calista adopted him. God, I feel old.

Harrison Ford’s youngest child is a college graduate!

The “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” star’s 22-year-old son, Liam, got his degree from Amherst College on Sunday.

The actor and wife Calista Flockhart dressed formally for the Massachusetts school’s ceremony over the weekend.

Ford, 80, sported a suit, while his 58-year-old partner rocked a white dress, a matching cardigan and ballet flats.

Liam, for his part, was photographed wearing a cap and gown while walking across the stage.

Flockhart adopted Liam in 2001, one year before she met Ford at the Golden Globe Awards.

The couple got engaged in 2009, tying the knot the following year in New Mexico. Ford subsequently adopted Liam.

The nuptials marked the Oscar nominee’s third marriage, as he previously wed Mary Marquardt and Melissa Mathison in 1964 and 1983, respectively.

Ford shares sons Ben, 55, and Willard, 54, with Marquardt as well as son Malcolm, 35, and daughter Georgia, 31, with Mathison.

“The truth is, I sometimes feel very much older than Harrison,” she told Closer Weekly of the gap, calling it a “non-issue.”

The Golden Globe winner said the same to Hello! Magazine back in 2003, joking she often “forget[s]” Ford is two decades older than her.

“It doesn’t factor into our relationship at all,” the “Ally McBeal” alum explained. “I like the way he looks first thing in the morning. It’s not handsome, it’s more cute. He looks like a little boy.”

Kevin McCarthy once suggested the president needs "soft food.” Now he's the one serving a "s**t sandwich" to his caucus.

During the debt limit standoff, McCarthy repeatedly said that by refusing to negotiate with Republicans, Biden was “bumbling” the U.S. toward a potentially catastrophic default. Even some Democrats criticized the president for not publicly engaging as much as McCarthy has in recent weeks. But as of Wednesday, default seemed unlikely, and the outlines of the deal appeared favorable to Democrats.

James Van Der Beek's Anti-Joe Biden Rant and DNC Takedown Earns Fox News Praise: Biden 'Has Declining Mental Faculties'

James Van Der Beek has became the talk of Fox News after posting a viral rant on TikTok in which he slammed the Democratic National Committe (DNC) for not planning to host a debate between Joe Biden and his Democratic opponents once he his bid for presidential re-election in 2024 is announced (via The Daily Beast). The DNC’s decision has been condemned by both media figures such as Joe Rogan and some of Biden’s Democratic challengers, including Robert F. Kennedy and Marianne Williamson.

Fox News’ Steve Doocy, who co-anchors the network’s morning show “Fox & Friends,” praised Van Der Beek for “ripping into” the DNC, saying, “I watched this video and I was like, this guy deserves to be sitting on a panel analyzing everything that’s going on right now.”

“I cannot get over the fact that the Democratic National Committee is saying there will not be a debate to decide the nominee for president,” Van Der Beek says in the video post. “Are you fucking kidding me? There’s no debate?…There’s no debate over an 80-year-old man who, if he lives, will be the oldest sitting president in the history of the country? And if he doesn’t live, has a vice president whose approval rating is worse than his?

“This guy has obviously declining mental faculties,” the “Dawson’s Creek” alum added about Biden. “You’re putting him up in front of a podium with flashcards telling him who to call on and what the questions are going to be. And you’re telling us there’s no debate? What about the will of the people?”

Conservative pundit Clay Travis was a guest on “Fox & Friends” and told Doocy, “I never would’ve believed that Dawson Leery from ‘Dawson’s Creek’ back in the day would make more sense analyzing the Democrat state of the presidential nomination fight than anyone on MSNBC or CNN combined.

Jury Duty on Freevee

This is a surprisingly hilarious show! The premise is that a documentary is being filmed focused on the people serving on a jury during a trial. In reality, everyone involved is an actor except one unsuspecting participant.

The unsuspecting participant is named Ronald and he is cute as hell. He has a naturally expressive face and seems like a genuinely nice and caring person. The improv actors playing all the other parts are a wild group of characters but are still believable in their eccentricities. James Marsden plays a version of himself and is very funny.

If you haven't checked it out it's worth doing so. Six of eight episodes have been released with the final two coming next Friday.

Nun’s body exhumed 4 years after death shows no signs of decay, sparks ‘miracle’ claims

The small rural Missouri town of Gower has become an unexpected pilgrimage destination after a nun’s exhumed body showed no visible signs of decomposition — four years after her burial.

Hundreds of people have been flocking to the town 40 miles north of Kansas City to marvel at the well-preserved body of Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster, with many calling it a “miracle in Missouri.”

Lancaster, when she was 70, founded the Benedictine Sisters of Mary, Queen of the Apostles.

She died in May 2019 at 95, according to the Catholic News Agency.

Last Thursday, Benedictine nuns dug up their foundress’ coffin to move it to beneath the altar in the convent’s chapel, which is customary.

“We were told by cemetery personnel to expect just bones in the conditions, as Sister Wilhelmina was buried without embalming and in a simple wood coffin,” one nun told Newsweek.

But when Mother Abbess Cecilia Snell looked through a crack in the coffin, she said she saw “a totally intact foot with the sock on, looking just like it did when we buried her.”

"The Life of the Party" goes overboard

A passenger on a Carnival Magic ship is missing after he fell overboard off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida, while on his first-ever cruise with his wife, authorities and family said Tuesday.

The 35-year-old passenger, identified by his wife as Ronnie Lee Peale Jr., ended up in the ocean about 185 miles east of Jacksonville early Monday, the US Coast Guard said.

Coast Guard aircraft and ships are being used in the search for the missing man.

Although officials have not formally named the passenger, Peale’s wife, Jennilyn Michelle Blosser, told Virginia news outlet WTKR that the man who went overboard is her husband.

According to the description of a GoFundMe campaign that Blosser launched Tuesday, she and her husband had gone on the cruise to celebrate her birthday.

The ship set out from Norfolk, Virginia, on May 25 and headed toward the Bahamas, bef

“This was Ronnie’s first cruise and thankfully he had a great time and made plenty of friends,” Blosser writes. “He is our social butterfly that was always on the move and loved to make friends with everyone.”

Blosser told WTRK that her husband is “the life of the party,” adding that he loved drinking, gambling and socializing on the ship.

The woman described herself as “devastated to say the least” by the unexpected incident.

Peale was reported missing late Monday afternoon. The Coast Guard statement said security footage on the ship shows that the man “leaned over the railing of his stateroom balcony and dropped into the water” at 4:10 a.m.

Carnival said the Coast Guard released the ship from search efforts and told the captain to return to port in Norfolk, Virginia, where it arrived as planned Tuesday.

Other passengers on the cruise reported hearing Carnival personnel asking for Peale over the intercom multiple times throughout the day Monday, but some said they only learned that he had gone overboard from Blosser’s Facebook post.

The ship can hold nearly 4,000 guests and is about 1,000 feet long.

According to KADN News 15, it was around 6:30 Thursday night when an employee walked inside the restaurant's freezer and discovered the lifeless body of a female. At this point, it's not known how long the woman was in the freezer, however, investigators believe it was an accident.

New Iberia Police Capt. Leland Laseter said, "A situation like this is unusual, so we're taking extra precautions during the investigation.

Thoughts & Prayers: Zoomers like to name their kids after "designer- brand influencers"

A TikToker is getting mixed reviews about her baby’s luxurious name, which was inspired by a designer brand.

The new mom, who goes by @thismisty online, shared her son’s moniker, Kartiyr, purportedly inspired by the brand Cartier, in a viral TikTok video.

Misty, 18, boasts 866,000 followers on the platform, regularly sharing footage of her and her son.

Celebrating nine months since his birth, Misty shared footage of her son online in a clip captioned, “My baby grownnnn’ upppp.”

The video, which scored 1 million views, garnered raucous feedback in the comments.

While some people praised the unique name, others cringed.

“Love him he’s so cute but the name is just crazy,” one user criticized. “Y’all forget we name adults too.”

“Oh lord this new generation and naming,” another chimed in.

“They b naming kids after items they wish for,” quipped someone else.

“You don’t love him naming him that,” one viewer wrote.

“I don’t get what is wrong with his name. I really think it’s unique and cute!” applauded one person.

“Yall hating on a baby is outrageous,” another defended the new mom. “I like his name.”

But Misty isn’t the only parent inspired by gilded luxury.

A study by the UK-based website JewelleryBox revealed just how popular designer-influencer names were among British and American newborns in nearly two decades, using national data from 2000 to 2018.

Armani took the crown with nearly 7,000 US parents opting for the Giorgio Armani namesake for their daughter during that time frame.

It was followed by commonly known brands such as Chanel, Dior, Nivea, Maybelline, Estee, Dove, Omega, Valentino and Cartier.

For baby boys, Armani also came in first with more than 8,000 babies bestowed with the moniker.

Other popular titles included Salvatore, Valentino, Kenzo, Cartier, Monolo, Dior, Omega, Yves and Klein.

High School Hottie Missing in the Bahamas

An 18-year-old went overboard in the Bahamas and is missing days after walking across the stage at his high school graduation, school officials said.

Cameron Robbins was a student at University Laboratory High School, a preparatory school through Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.

“Recent graduate of University High Lab School, 18-year-old Cameron Robbins is missing after he went overboard a boat last night in the Bahamas,” LSU spokesperson Abbi Rocha Laymoun told McClatchy News in an email on May 25. “School administrators are aware of the situation and are providing extra counselors for students and faculty who know him.”

Robbins was traveling with a group of seniors from multiple schools on a trip to Atlantis, in Paradise Island, LSU officials told BRProud.

Robbins graduated from high school on Sunday, May 21, The Advocate reported.

The U.S. Coast Guard said in a Facebook post that it is assisting the Royal Bahamas Defence Force with “search efforts for a missing U.S. citizen believed to have fallen overboard from a sunset cruise near Nassau, yesterday evening.”

The Royal Bahamas Police Force told WBRZ it is investigating a claim that Robbins jumped into the water on a dare and swam in the water next to the boat with a life jacket nearby.

“A 13-year kid here at U-High,” Lab School Director Kevin George told the outlet. “That’s a special kid that’s been here throughout his entire educational career. He’s an athlete, great kid, great smile, great head of hair. Just one of the kids you’re so proud of when they cross the stage.”

U-High administrators were in contact with local authorities and Robbins’ family, and told McClatchy News the search was ongoing in the Bahamas.

“The University Lab School Community is praying for the best possible outcome of this situation,” George told McClatchy News in an email. “In times like these we must come together and support each other. Words fall short of expressing the worry our entire school community is feeling. ... Our thoughts are with the Robbins family, and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts as well.”

Robbins is from Baton Rouge, The Advocate reported.

Kimberly Gargoyle threatens DeSantis : 'You Are Going to Get Hurt Badly'

Former Fox News employee Kimberly Guilfoyle has launched her own attack against Ron DeSantis for entering the 2024 election race.

"So, by the time Trump is done – we saw this before, 16 people, one after the next, fell off the stage – you're gonna end up in the junkyard, and you're not gonna be in good shape for 2028," she continued in her tirade.

Guilfoyle was also a prominent figure in the media and left Fox News in 2018 after being accused of sexual harassment by one of her assistants.

Camilla WILL become the Dowager Queen

Queen Camilla has gone through several title changes in a pretty short span of time: First she was Duchess Camilla due to being the wife of then-Prince Charles. And then once Queen Elizabeth passed away, she started being referred to as Queen Consort Camilla—with emphasis on the consort—presumably to show respect to Queen Elizabeth and make it clear that she didn't hold any sovereign power. But nowadays the whole ~consort~ thing has been dropped, and she's straight-up going by Queen Camilla. But even this will change should Camilla outlive her husband King Charles!

Once Prince William becomes King, his wife Kate Middleton will take up the role of Queen Consort—and likely be known as either Queen Kate or Queen Catherine (depending on how fancy the vibes are). So, where does that leave Queen Camilla?

According to The Mirror, she will officially be known as the Queen Dowager.

We dig into alllll the different types of Queen titles this way, but TLDR; a Queen Dowager is the official name for a widow of a king. If Camilla becomes a Queen Dowager, she'll retain all the importance and perks of her previous position as the consort, just without the title. She'll also likely be referred to as "The Queen Dowager," similarly to how Queen Elizabeth's mother was referred to as "The Queen Mother." Note: Queen Elizabeth's mother was technically also a queen dowager, but wasn't styled as such. Camilla won't be known as "Queen Mother" because she's not the biological mother of England's future monarch!

The last Queen styled as Queen Dowager was Queen Adelaide (the wife of King William IV), who used the title in 1837 after her husband passed away and Queen Victoria ascended the throne. In case you were wondering!

Memory Decline now Linked to Low Sexual Satisfaction

Can't get no satisfaction? Then you might be at risk for cognitive inaction.

According to a new study, low sexual satisfaction in middle age could be linked to memory loss later in life. Led by researchers from Pennsylvania State University, the study tracked 818 men over 12 years, from the ages of 56 to 68. Researchers tested and measured participants' memory and processing speed over time, and found that reported declines in erectile function and sexual satisfaction correlated to future memory loss.

"Research on sexual health has historically focused on quantifiable facets of sexuality like number of sexual partners or frequency of sexual activity," lead author and Penn State doctoral candidate Riki Slayday said in a news release. "What we were interested in is the perception of that activity, how someone feels about their sex life, and how that influences cognitive function, because multiple people could be in the same situation physically but experience completely different levels of satisfaction."

Subjects were followed beginning in middle age, because it represents a period when declines in cognition, sexual satisfaction and erectile function begin to emerge. Researchers say the strong correlation between the three variables point to a general connection between physical and psychological health.

"When we mapped the relationship over time, we found increases or decreases in erectile function and sexual satisfaction were associated with concurrent increases or decreases in cognitive function," Slayday said. "These associations survived adjustment for demographic and health factors, which tells us there is a clear connection between our sex lives and our cognition."

The study was published in the most recent issue of The Gerontologist, a peer-reviewed academic journal. Gerontology refers to the scientific study of aging.

Co-author and Penn State human development and family studies professor Martin Sliwinski says the research also builds on other studies that have found links between life satisfaction and cognitive performance.

"Scientists have found that if you have low satisfaction generally, you are at a higher risk for health problems like dementia, Alzheimer's disease, cardiovascular disease and other stress-related issues that can lead to cognitive decline," Sliwinski explained in the news release. "We tell people they should get more exercise and eat better foods. We’re showing that sexual satisfaction also has importance for our health and general quality of life."

Because the relationship between cardiovascular health and erectile function is well-understood, Sliwinski believes doctors should view erectile dysfunction as a warning sign for other health issues, including the risk of future cognitive decline.

"We already have a pill for treating erectile dysfunction," Sliwinski said. "What we don’t have is an effective treatment for memory loss. Instead of the conversation being about treating ED, we should see that as a leading indicator for other health problems and also focus on improving sexual satisfaction and overall well-being, not just treating the symptom."

Cute lawyer turns out to be serial rapist!

An attorney charged in a series of sexual assaults and kidnappings in Boston's Charlestown neighborhood in 2007 and 2008 has been suspended by the company where was hired earlier this year.

Matthew Nilo, who is due in a New Jersey court Thursday morning for an extradition hearing, was "suspended pending further investigation" by his employer, the cyber-insurance company Cowbell said in a statement Wednesday, a day after Nilo was arrested at his Weehawken apartment building across the Hudson River from Manhattan.

The 35-year-old was taken into custody at a waterfront apartment building on Harbor Boulevard by FBI agents and police, according to the warrant filed in court. The law enforcement agents had the front desk of his building call Nilo and say he had a package delivered that was too large to hold in the lobby, and he was arrested when he came down to pick up it up.

Nilo was hired in January after passing a background check, according to Cowbell.

He faces charges of aggravated rape, kidnapping, assault with intent to rape and indecent assault and battery in Boston, officials said Tuesday in announcing his arrest over attacks in the area of Terminal Street, which runs through an industrial part of Charlestown under the Tobin Bridge, on Aug. 18, 2007; Nov. 22, 2007; Aug. 5, 2008; and Dec. 23, 2008. Nilo was identified using investigative forensic genealogy, which linked his DNA to the cases.

Nilo's arrest highlights the increased use of forensic genetic genealogy by investigators.

"This really jumps us several generations ahead in terms of what we are able to do with DNA we might recover," said Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan, who has been one of the leaders in using this new technology.

"Homeless veterans" booted from NY hotels to make room for migrants were hired actors

"POUGHKEEPSIE — Three men currently staying at a homeless shelter in Poughkeepsie said they were among a group of 15 recruited a few days ago to portray homeless veterans displaced from upstate hotels by incoming migrants.

In interviews, the men said two people came to the shelter Wednesday saying they had work for 15 men between the ages of 40 and 60. They would be paid $100 for two or three hours of effort, and no heavy lifting would be involved....

Eventually, the recruits were taken in three vehicles to the Daily Planet Diner near Lagrangeville, where they were joined by Sharon Toney-Finch, CEO of the Yerik Israel Toney Foundation (YIT), an Orange County nonprofit formed to raise awareness of premature births and help homeless and low-income military service veterans. Toney-Finch had been the primary source for the initial story about veterans being displaced by migrants, which the New York Post published on May 12. That story has since been debunked."

Entrepreneur of the Year : ‘QAnon Shaman’ Jacob Chansley out of jail and selling his own 'Qult' Merchandise

“QAnon Shaman” Jacob Angeli Chansley is cashing in a day after being freed by selling mock movie posters, children’s clothes and pictures of himself, as he boasted in his first interview since jail that he tried to help other inmates and “taught a metaphysics class.”

Chansley — who captured headlines as the horned, shirtless, heavily tattooed figure among throngs of Jan. 6 Capitol protesters — was a free man Thursday after 27 months in a federal prison and two in a halfway house.

He was quick to go public with his website selling gift cards, mouse pads and phone cases, children’s clothes, T-shirts, sandals and aprons — some of which had already sold out by Friday afternoon.

Interested shoppers can choose from themed pictures, including a $99 mock movie poster of Chansley flanked by former President Trump and former national security adviser Michael Flynn in the style of the poster of the mob hit “GoodFellas.”

“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a patriot,” the movie poster states, along with the title, “QuItFellas”

It’s a small deviation from the cult-classic movie’s famous quote: “As far back as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a gangster.”

“Goodfellas” tells the story of Henry Hill’s upbringing and life in the mob, as he navigates crime, murder and the effects of his mafia lifestyle.

Chansley appears to also be offering courses and booking opportunities for him to speak through his “Forbidden Truth Academy.”

He has also since announced a podcast and a website and pushed several media appearances through a newly created Twitter account.

Federal prosecutors have obtained an audio recording of a summer 2021 meeting in which former President Donald Trump acknowledges he held onto a classified Pentagon document about a potential attack on Iran, multiple sources told CNN, undercutting his argument that he declassified everything.

The recording indicates Trump understood he retained classified material after leaving the White House, according to multiple sources familiar with the investigation. On the recording, Trump’s comments suggest he would like to share the information but he’s aware of limitations on his ability post-presidency to declassify records, two of the sources said.

Ok DL Doctors & Nurses, Diagnose Me

What presented about 6 weeks ago as sinus issues and then possibly into a sinus infection. Sinus headaches, swollen nasal passages. Teledoc said to try Flonase and Clairitin and also sent me for a PCR which came back negative.

Felt somewhat better, but two weeks later, got bad again and teledoc prescribed antibiotics. Midway through the course, tenderness around my left eye socket and more headache pain over the left eye, getting increasingly worse. Afrin doesn't help, ibuprofen or Naproxen doesn't help. I'm also in the middle of a short course of prednisone for a back issue which finishes tomorrow.

Last night, my left upper lip started to feel numb and my left eye was watering and I had pain behind it. Saw an ENT this morning who scoped my nose and checked ears and throat and could see no infection. He suspected migraine, even though I have no history. He prescribed Imitrex, which I took today and has done nothing. My upper left teeth are now numb, as well. No pain in the mouth, no swelling, no bleeding. I called my dentist to see if I needed to make an emergency visit and he never called me back.

ENT said if the Imitrex didn't work, we would do a CT scan of my head, but the first appt isn't for 2 weeks. I am in constant pain and I just want to figure out what this is and fix it. I'm reluctant to go to the ER even though I'm not sure I can take the pain much longer.

Anyone with any similar experiences? Obviously I'm not looking for a diagnosis in lieu of going to a doctor, but I'd love to hear that i'm not going to have to give away all my stuff. Thanks.

These are the 12 most common long COVID symptoms identified in a new study

The 12 key symptoms identified in the study were:

Loss of smell or taste

Post-exertional malaise

Chronic cough

Brain fog



Chest pain



Gastrointestinal issues

Issues with sexual desire or capacity

Abnormal movements, such as tremors, unintended movements, or rigidity

But those are not the only symptoms that define long COVID, the researchers said. Patients may have one of those symptoms, or many — or others not on the list — and suffer long-term consequences of the coronavirus.

“Sometimes I hear people say, ‘Oh, everybody’s a little tired,’ ” Dr. Leora Horwitz, co-principal investigator for the RECOVER Clinical Science Core at NYU Langone Health, said in the release. “No, there’s something different about people who have long COVID, and that’s important to know.”

Jensen Ackles Has Ideas For A Supernatural Revival

Jensen Ackles reveals he has ideas for a Supernatural revival, including a 10-episode series at HBO Max reuniting him with Jared Padalecki.

As the franchise gears up for its next chapter, Jensen Ackles reveals he has ideas for a potential Supernatural revival series at HBO Max. Ackles starred in the beloved CW series as Dean Winchester, older brother to Jared Padalecki's Sam, both of whom are regarded as the best monster hunters in America, and possibly the world. Supernatural initially chronicles their journey to find their missing monster hunter father, Jeffrey Dean Morgan's John, before ultimately becoming about the two tackling various cases across the country and protecting the world from apocalyptic threats.

[quote]"I kind of feel [Warner Bros.] were watching 15 years of a small-screen buddy comedy! I have this lofty dream of when, after things have settled, we'll tackle one more case as Sam and Dean. I've got a few ideas. [Maybe] a nice 10-episode short-order for HBO Max, I'm just saying. Like a whole True Detective meets Supernatural. It's right there."

Armie Hammer Will Not Face Sex Assault Charges in L.A. Case

The Los Angeles County D.A.’s office has decided not to file sexual assault charges against actor Armie Hammer, following a lengthy investigation by the LAPD.

In a statement, the D.A.’s office said it could not prove rape allegations beyond a reasonable doubt, in part due to the “complexity of the relationship” between Hammer and the accuser.

The accuser, who was previously identified as Effie, reported Hammer to the police in February 2021. She alleged that Hammer had been physically abusive during an on-and-off relationship that spanned four years, and said that he had violently raped her in 2017. Hammer vehemently denied her allegations.

Dissociative Identity Disorder: does it really exist?

The bestseller "Sybil" was released 50 years ago, and they're soon going to release the streaming series "The Crowded Room" about Billy Milligan, the serial rapist who was the first person to claim DID (which used to be known as multiple personality disorder) as an excuse in the courtroom (he actually got off for it).

I've yet to hear definitively as to whether this is a real condition or not. Following the success of "Sybil" (there's a story about that case in the NYTimes) as book and miniseries it became a popular diagnosis for a while, and I've even known someone who claimed to have it (she refered to herself as "a multiple"). Even Roseanne claimed to have it, and manifested her supposed multiple personalities on a talk show. But then after the discrediting of the real Sybil and her psychiatrist and many other cases (such as the subject of "The Three Faces of Eve"), you almost never heard about anyone claiming to have it anymore. But it still is in the DSM-5. So does it really exist, or not? Or is it just troubled patients pretending so as to to please their therapists who are looking for an interesting case to diagnose? (As was the case with the real "Sybil Dorset.")

Mike Pence to announce 2024 presidential campaign in Iowa next week

Former Vice President Mike Pence will enter the 2024 presidential race June 7 with a kickoff event in Iowa, The Post has learned.

Pence, 63, will mark his entrance to the GOP primary with a speech in Des Moines, a source familiar with the vice president’s plans said. He is also scheduled to take part in a CNN town hall the same day.

“We view this race as absolutely wide open, and Iowa is really going to solidify itself as the pivotal player,” a source close to the situation told NBC News.

“It’s a place that values Mike Pence’s principles — traditional conservative principles — deep-rooted faith and uncommon character.”

A super PAC supporting Pence, Committed to America, launched earlier this month.

Pence’s entrance will pit him against his former running mate, Donald Trump, as well as an increasingly crowded field of Republican candidates.

Pence broke with Trump, 76, over his claims the 2020 election was decided by fraud.

Change of heart ? Tina Turner to have 'small private funeral' instead of 'upstaging her rival Aretha Franklin'


RadarOnLine had earlier reported that Tina Turner planned her funeral after she had her kidney transplant, which was right around the time Aretha Franklin died. After Franklin had her 'big, final, farewell' , Turner started planning her own - and wanted to outdo her lifelong rival, Franklin.

They NEVER had a good relationship,” said a source. Another insider said Tina saw her “swan song as an opportunity to kick a little dirt on her rival’s grave.”

In 2018, a source said, “Tina’s picking out a designer wardrobe for her to wear while she’s lying in repose, a custom hearse, a string of top performers and an amazing gravesite that will overshadow Aretha’s! They were heated rivals in life, and Tina’s not about to let Aretha upstage her in death!””

“It will be Tina’s last and biggest show ever,” said the source. The insider said Tina wanted to make sure her send-off “eclipses Aretha’s!”

Five years later, it's being reported this week Turner wished to be cremated and have a small funeral, a very private affair. She wants a small service in Switzerland, with her manager and close friends attending. She didn't want any family members attending, either, according to Eddy Hampton ‘Armani’, who was Tina’s personal assistant for more than 20 years.

Florida man sets record for living underwater

KEY LARGO, Fla. (AP) — A university professor broke a record for the longest time living underwater without depressurization this weekend at a Florida Keys lodge for scuba divers.

Joseph Dituri’s 74th day residing in Jules’ Undersea Lodge, situated at the bottom of a 30-foot-deep lagoon in Key Largo, wasn’t much different than his previous days there since he submerged March 1.

Dituri, who also goes by the moniker “Dr. Deep Sea,” ate a protein-heavy meal of eggs and salmon prepared using a microwave, exercised with resistance bands, did his daily pushups and took an hour-long nap. Unlike a submarine, the lodge does not use technology to adjust for the increased underwater pressure.

The previous record of 73 days, two hours and 34 minutes was set by two Tennessee professors -- Bruce Cantrell and Jessica Fain -- at the same location in 2014.

But Dituri isn't just settling for the record and resurfacing: He plans to stay at the lodge until June 9, when he reaches 100 days and completes an underwater mission dubbed Project Neptune 100.

The mission combines medical and ocean research along with educational outreach and was organized by the Marine Resources Development Foundation, owner of the habitat.

“The record is a small bump and I really appreciate it,” said Dituri, a University of South Florida educator who holds a doctorate in biomedical engineering and is a retired U.S. Naval officer. “I’m honored to have it, but we still have more science to do.”

His research includes daily experiments in physiology to monitor how the human body responds to long-term exposure to extreme pressure.

“The idea here is to populate the world’s oceans, to take care of them by living in them and really treating them well,” Dituri said.

The outreach portion of Dituri’s mission includes conducting online classes and broadcast interviews from his digital studio beneath the sea. During the past 74 days, he has reached over 2,500 students through online classes in marine science and more with his regular biomedical engineering courses at the University of South Florida.

While he says he loves living under the ocean, there is one thing he really misses.

“The thing that I miss the most about being on the surface is literally the sun,” Dituri said. “The sun has been a major factor in my life – I usually go to the gym at five and then I come back out and watch the sunrise.”

MARINES were partying with teens on the beach before brawl broke out

The Marines brutally beaten by a group of up to 40 teenagers at a California beach over Memorial Day weekend are seen partying with a group before the incident in new videos obtained by The Post.

Hunter Antonino, one of the three off-duty Marines who were attacked, is seen among a rowdy crowd of at least 20 people on T-Street Beach in San Clemente on May 26.

The atmosphere appears friendly and he is seen wearing a cowboy hat as he plays cards with other members of the group.

He then hands a half-empty Fireball whiskey bottle to another member of the party, who takes a swig before handing it back.

Another video shows a chaotic scene with a large group of people gathered together closely around two of the Marines, who are shirtless.

Sources told The Post the two Marines were grappling with each other in a play fight for the crowd.

At one point, a Marine who appears to be Antonino briefly pushes a member of the group away from him, before the other quickly intervenes and grabs him.

Does anyone have any inside gossip why Salem’s Lot (2023) was shelved

At last year's CinemaCon, Warner Bros. showed off the very first trailer for Gary Dauberman's 'Salem's Lot, an all-new adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel that was originally announced all the way back in April of 2020. Journalists in attendance flooded Twitter with their instant reactions to the footage, calling it "great," "terrifying," and "eerie, creepy, and full of Bill Camp!"

Dauberman's film was originally scheduled to hit theaters in September of 2022, only to be rescheduled to April of 2023. Just this past weekend, in fact. You may have noticed that WB opened a horror movie in theaters last weekend, and that it's doing quite well at the box office ... but you will also notice that film is not Gary Dauberman's 'Salem's Lot.

Today, Warner Bros. once again trotted out their robust slate of films at CinemaCon (if you're unfamiliar, CinemaCon is the big annual dog-and-pony show that the studios put on for theater owners; lots of celebrities, yet-to-be released trailers, and sometimes even full-blown screenings of upcoming movies factor into it). David Zaslav, the CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, appeared onstage early on, hammering home the point that WB has seen the error of its ways and would no longer be premiering films day and date on HBO Max (excuse me, Max) and celebrating the act of seeing new movies in theaters.

The panel went on for hours, showcasing everything from a brief glimpse at George Miller's Furiosa to Ben Wheatley's The Meg 2 (which sounds bananas) to Greta Gerwig's Barbie to Andy Muschietti's The Flash and everything in between. Curiously absent from this conversation: Gary Dauberman's 'Salem's Lot, which - despite having been given a rating by the MPAA in November of last year! - still does not have a release date.

We're talking about a modern adaptation of one of Stephen King's most iconic novels, with a respectable cast (in addition to the aforementioned Bill Camp, 'Salem's Lot also features Alfre Woodard, William Sadler, and Lewis Pullman, among others) and a director who's found plenty of success within the horror genre (Dauberman wrote all three Annabelle movies and both IT and IT: Chapter Two, the latter of which he executive produced), floating around in the ether at a time when horror is doing more than its fair share in terms of getting folks out of the house and into theaters.

So, what the hell is going on here?

For starters, it's possible that 'Salem's Lot is no longer getting a theatrical release. Were it still theatrical and simply being bumped to, say, September or October, it almost certainly would've been mentioned during WB's presentation ... unless, of course, the powers-that-be didn't want to risk embarrassment by selling the CinemaCon crowd on the same film two years in a row ("Wait, didn't we see this trailer last year?"). That's possible, but sending the film directly to Max in time for "spooky season" seems the most likely outcome here.

It's also possible, however unlikely, that they've either Batgirl'd the film or have taken stock and decided to do some reshoots. Given that the film has already received its MPAA rating, that would seem to be extremely likely ... but it's also not entirely out of the question. Stranger things have happened! And if reshoots are taking place, that'd mean getting a number of cast members back together, and many months after the production wrapped. That'd likely lead to scheduling issues (these people have moved on with their lives!), and those scheduling issues might create a substantial delay, the sort of delay that'd explain why WB has gone silent on 'Salem's Lot in the meantime.

Another “Don’t Fuck with my Phone, Bitches!” Incident

Girl Charged with Burning School, 19 Children Dead, After Phone Was Taken Away

A 15-year-old girl has been accused of setting fire in a school dormitory in Guyana that resulted in the deaths of 18 schoolmates and a five-year-old boy.

The teen was charged on Monday with 19 counts of murder. She will be tried as an adult, a court near the capital of Georgetown decided, per Associated Press.

Police claim the girl purposely set fire on May 21 to Mahdia Secondary School in retaliation after a school official confiscated her mobile phone.

She was not allowed to submit a plea on the charges; her next court appearance will be held on July 5. If she is found guilty, the teen could face a lifetime in prison.

Per local authorities, the school blaze began shortly before midnight. Dozens of children were injured in addition to the 19 deaths. One victim was flown to a hospital in New York for special treatment.

Police say all five doors in the burned building were locked with keys from inside, per AP.

The dormitory administrator is said to have bolted all the doors as a precaution to prevent the female students -- ranging in age from 12-18 -- from covertly leaving to socialize with adult males in a nearby mining town.

The admin, aka "dorm mom", fumbled the keys in panic as the fire ripped through the building, said National Security Advisor Gerald Gouveia.

Moral Quandary re: Taxi Drivers in Distress

I know DL is not the place to turn to for solid moral advice, but I am interested in hearing other perspectives on this.

I live with my partner in a one bedroom apartment in one of New York's outer boroughs. One of the things I love most about my neighborhood is its proximity to Manhattan and an airport, despite how removed from the city I feel when I go home at the end of the day.

I travel by plane 2-3 times a year, making a point to fly in and out of the local airport because it never takes me any longer than 20 minutes from door to door in the worst traffic. I call an Uber from home to get me to the airport, but coming back I've found its easier to take a taxi from the line of cabs that are already there rather than calling an Uber, waiting around, and directing the driver through the confusing labyrinth of terminals and traffic.

Last week, I flew home after several days in Houston for work. I waited on line at the airport for a cab, and when it was my turn I told the the driver my address. He immediately started arguing with his superior: he didn't want to drive me because I lived too close to the airport and it wasn't worth his while to lose his place in line.

The argument didn't last long. His superior shut him down. The driver threw my suitcase in the trunk and we drove to my apartment with him sighing and shaking his head for the entire ride. (Sidenote: I can't remember the last time I didn't have to use my phone to give my taxi driver directions. They get upset if they even have to ask.)

I was home in less than ten minutes. The ride cost more than $30.00. I gave the guy a $20.00 tip for which he seemed very grateful. He gently took my suitcase out of the trunk, as a thank you.

A version of this interaction took place with little variation the past several times I've taken a taxi home from the airport.

I guess I'm looking for, if not validation, then perspective here. Am I taking advantage of a service that is not meant for me? Is it immoral to continue taking taxis when I can expect the driver to be distressed that I'm keeping him from making money that he obviously needs? Is the onus on him for making me uncomfortable, or on me for allowing myself to feel guilty and wanting a better overall experience? Help me, DL!!

Ben Platt flashes engagement ring from fiancé Noah Galvin: ‘He proposed back’

Ben Platt is engaged… again!

The Broadway star showed fans his diamond ring after revealing that his fiancé Noah Galvin popped the all-important question to him following their initial engagement in November.

Taking to his Instagram Story Monday, the 29-year-old said his beau proposed with a sapphire ring, which bears similarities to the ring he gave Galvin last year.

“He proposed back 💙,” the “Pitch Perfect” star wrote alongside a snap of his huge sparkler.

Platt later posted a sweet snap of their dog holding a red rose in his mouth.

“I said yes,” Platt wrote alongside the picture.

“GEORGE DID THE ASKING,” quipped Galvin, 29, who reposted both snaps on his Instagram Story.

The pair then celebrated the exciting occasion with pals, and even had a special cake made that read, “Gay marriage is cool.”

Platt later posted a sweet snap of him and Galvin embracing while wearing party hats and a “groom” sash.

The couple first announced their engagement in November 2022.

“He agreed to hang out forever,” Platt captioned a series of photos on Instagram from the proposal, which took place at a restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

“I said yeehaw and then cried for like 7 hours ,” Galvin added on his own account.

In one snap, the pair are surrounded by a stunning floral display adorned with candles, while another shows a close-up of Galvin’s engagement ring.

Platt and the “Good Doctor” star each played the lead role in the Broadway show “Dear Evan Hansen.”

After the Tony winner stepped down from the show, Galvin took over and the pair became close friends for years before turning their friendship into a romance.

I had to use my deadname on my marriage license. Now I'm getting divorced and have to use it again.

I remember looking at my marriage license on my wedding day and seeing my old name. I wasn't surprised; I knew it would be there. In the moment it felt sort of sweet, like the name had done all it could for me. Here it was one last time, carrying me forward into a happy ending.

When I saw that same name on my divorce documents, I balked. I hadn't seen the name in years, and on a document so official, each letter felt like a small sting. Here I am again: all the way at the beginning, deadname and all.

I thought that getting married was the last thing I would do as a woman, but it turns out I have to get divorced as one too.

I came out as trans while dating my ex-wife when I was 22. She was incredibly supportive; we used to joke that she knew I was a man before I did. I started taking hormones and then got top surgery in 2014.

I thought coming out would be the hard part, but what came next was, in some ways, even more difficult. Most trans people don't talk about how much administrative work is involved in transitioning. I knew that legally changing my name and gender on official documents would take time and a lot of effort.

My bank had a harder time with my name change than my 90-year-old grandmother, and she still thinks lesbianism is a communist conspiracy.

When we got married I had already started the name-change process, but I didn't have enough official identification to request a marriage license as a man. So I was forced to get married under my deadname.

It was weird having a beard and spelling out my girl name to the woman behind the desk at the Los Angeles County clerk's office, but she didn't seem to mind.

My divorce has been a kind one. My ex and I are still friendly after 10 years together; nothing big or bad happened between us. Our relationship just wound down and we decided to move forward apart. There is sadness there, but also a lot of relief.

But when I saw my deadname on the divorce papers, I imagined my younger self — my girl self — hovering over me as I scanned through all the documents outlining exactly what is mine and what is my ex's.

It's a name I haven't used in years — 12 years, in fact. I realized this divorce will be the last thing I do under this name. One last round of paperwork, and she's gone for good.

I was surprised to feel a pang of grief. I will never be the same person I was, as inauthentic as she was or as difficult as my life was as her. For me, there is so much joy in transitioning, but there is a little loss, too.

I don't regret a single thing about transitioning. I'm also proud of who I was before, though, and I'll miss some of the ways I got to be in the world as her. I never was a very convincing woman, but I don't want to erase that history or all the good things I did as that person.

Though there is a lot of joy in my transition, I'm now realizing through my divorce that it's OK to spend a little time with the grief too.

Benedict Cumberbatch and family attacked by an angry chef wielding a fish knife

Benedict Cumberbatch and his family were left shaken after a chef carrying a knife tried to attack their home.

Jack Bissell, a former chef at the five-star Beaumont Hotel in Mayfair, forcibly entered Cumberbatch's property in north London and threatened him and his family, a court heard, per The Times.

He kicked his way in through the garden gate and yelled: "I know you've moved here, I hope it burns down," per The Times.

He then uprooted a garden plant and tossed it at a garden wall, before spitting on the actor's intercom device, the outlet reported. Bissell then used a fish knife to dislodge the intercom.

The police were later able to retrieve Bissell's DNA from the intercom, and arrested him, The Times reported.

The "Sherlock" actor was at home with his wife and three young children during the incident. It is unclear when the attack took place, but Bissell appeared before a court on May 10, pleaded guilty to criminal damage and received a $310 fine. He's also been ordered by the court to stay away from the family for three years, per The Times.

A source close to the actor's family told the Daily Mail: "Naturally all of the family were absolutely terrified and thought this guy was going to get in and hurt them."

"Luckily it never went that far. Benedict and Sophie have had many sleepless nights since worrying that they may be targeted again," the source told the Daily Mail.

Bissell was previously convicted of theft and also had prior warnings on his record related to drug, property, and public order offenses, The Times reported.

Cumberbatch's representatives and Bissell did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment sent outside regular business hours.

DERP! Idiot Tourists Follow GPS Instructions Straight Into A Harbor!

A pair of tourists drove their car into a harbor after mistakenly following GPS directions in Hawaii, and appeared confused when the car started filling up with water.

The incident happened on Saturday at the Honokohau Small Boat Harbor in Kailua-Kona, a region on the west coast of Hawaii, per The Washington Post.

A video by Christie Hutchinson, a witness to the incident, showed the two women buckled into their Dodge Caravan while it was headlights deep in the murky water.

"I was just sitting there trying to seek shelter from the rain, and then the next thing, I saw a car drive directly past our boat straight into the harbor at a pretty decent speed," Hutchinson told The Post. "It was so confidently done, they didn't have a look of panic on their face. They were still smiling."

Hutchinson's video on Sunday shows the car's windshield wipers still moving as the car slowly tipped forwards, but the women did not appear to be panicking.

"And it took us a second to figure out what was going on because they didn't seem panicked or have any sense of urgency to get out of the car," she told Hawaii News Now.

"Pretty sure that wasn't supposed to happen," Hutchinson said in her video, while other witnesses shouted at the tourists to get out of the car.

Eventually, the tourists unbuckled themselves. The passenger climbed out through the window and waded out, while the driver sat on the window, seemingly unsure of how to escape.

The video also showed several men stepping in to try to save the women, and get the car out of the harbor. At one point, a man stepped in to help the driver get out of the vehicle, and onto dry land.

The video also captured the moment the car sank into the harbor — dipping into the water nose first, then disappearing beneath the surface.

The video was later hauled out of the water by tow crews, per Hawaii News Now.

Hutchinson told Insider that the tourists told her their car was not insured.

She added that she believed that the tourists were sisters, but that she did not have any other information on them. However, no one was hurt in the incident, she said.

When on land, the tourists said that they were on their way to a manta ray tour, Hutchinson told Insider.

"There are manta companies directly on either side of the ramp and I can see how such a mistake could happen in heavy rain perhaps," she said.

Samantha Tavares, an information specialist for Hawaii's Department of Transportation, told The Post that the occurrence was "kind of rare" because the GPS directions are usually accurate in the state.

Tavares gave advice for tourists in Hawaii, telling The Post: "If you see a body of water, don't drive towards it."

The Hawaii Police Department did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment sent outside of regular business hours.

Woman who threatened Nancy Pelosi with hanging during Capitol riot gets over 2 years in prison

A Pennsylvania restaurant owner who screamed death threats directed at then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi while storming the U.S. Capitol was sentenced on Tuesday to more than two years in prison.

Pauline Bauer was near Pelosi's office suite on Jan. 6, 2021, when she yelled at police officers to bring out the California Democrat so the mob of Donald Trump supporters could hang her.

In January, U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden convicted Bauer of riot-related charges after hearing trial testimony without a jury. The judge sentenced her to two years and three months of imprisonment, giving her credit for the several months she already has served in jail, court records show.

Prosecutors had recommended a prison sentence of six years and six months for Bauer, 55, of Kane, Pennsylvania.

Bauer was part of the mob that forced police officers on the East Plaza to retreat. After forcing her way into the Capitol, she accosted officers who were trying to secure the Rotunda, shoving one of them, and yelled at police to “bring them out or we’re coming in,” according to federal prosecutors.

“They’re criminals. They need to hang,” she screamed. “Bring Nancy Pelosi out here now. We want to hang (her). Bring her out."

Other rioters shouted threats against Pelosi while they roamed through the Capitol.

“Bauer’s threat to hang Speaker Pelosi was real, imminent, and placed the Speaker of the House in danger,” prosecutor James Peterson wrote in a court filing.

Bauer traveled from her north Pennsylvania home to attend then-President Donald Trump's “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington on Jan. 6. She had attended a “Stop the Steal” rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, a day earlier.

She came to Washington with at least five other people who have been charged in the Capitol riot, including co-defendant William Blauser, who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge. Last year, McFadden ordered Blauser to pay a $500 fine but didn’t sentence him to any term of incarceration or probation.

McFadden convicted Bauer of all five counts in her indictment, including a felony charge that she obstructed the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress that certified President Joe Biden’s 2020 electoral victory.

Defense attorney Komron Jon Maknoon said Bauer never intended to interfere with the process of certifying the Electoral College vote. She “genuinely regrets her past actions” and doesn't pose a threat to the public, her lawyer said.

"The international spotlight showcasing her at her worst has deeply affected her," Maknoon wrote.

Prosecutors said Bauer lied during her trial testimony, giving a bogus explanation for her confrontation with police and claiming she didn't remember threatening Pelosi.

Bauer has used “sovereign citizen” extremist rhetoric and filed “nonsense" court documents while defending herself, prosecutors said.

More than a year before the trial, McFadden ordered Bauer to be jailed for several months for violating conditions of her release. She had claimed the court has no authority over her and told the judge that she doesn’t want “any lawyering from the bench.”

During an interview in 2021, Bauer said her arrest on Capitol riot charges led to a mixed reaction from neighbors in Kane, a small town on the edge of the 517,000-acre Allegheny National Forest.

“A lot of people say that they’re proud of me for standing up for my rights,” she told The Associated Press.

Bauer said her restaurant, Bob’s Trading Post, was thriving before the COVID-19 pandemic. She became known in her hometown as an outspoken critic of lockdown measures that cost her business.

More than 1,000 people have been charged with federal crimes for their conduct on Jan. 6. More than 500 of them have been sentenced, with over half receiving terms of imprisonment ranging from one week to 18 years.

Ashley Graham is named Maxim's 'World's Sexiest Woman'

Ashley Graham is No. 1 on the list of "World's Sexiest Women," according to Maxim magazine, the cover of which she graces for the May/June 2023 "Hot 100" edition.

It isn't the first time that the 35-year-old has appeared on the publication's cover: Her debut with the brand was back in April 2016, when she posed with a white button-down shirt covering her otherwise nude body. As a second-time Maxim cover girl, however, she's celebrating recent accomplishments, including becoming a mother of three.

"Having children has given me more of a drive," she told the magazine, referring to her 3-year-old son and 1-year-old twin boys Roman and Malachi, all shared with husband Justin Ervin. "The first time I was on the cover of Maxim I did not have three kids, and this time I have three little babies. It makes you remember that 'hotness' is in so many scenarios, and comes in all shapes and sizes. I’ve always preached that, but after I saw my body change so much after having three kids back-to-back, it’s hard to wrap my head around accepting my body and where I am, and how new and different it looks. So, thanks, Maxim!"

The journey of body acceptance is one that Graham has spearheaded throughout her career as a model, although she admitted that she didn't know being in front of the camera was her destiny when she was scouted at a mall in Nebraska as a tween. "At 12 years old, do you really know who you want to be?" she said. "But I would say, I don’t know how else I would be able to have this platform if it weren’t for modeling—so God bless you, modeling."

Graham reflected on some of the biggest accomplishments of her career, including giving a TED Talk, getting her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover in 2016 and the creation of a Barbie made in her likeness. Many of these moments were "in the early days," she noted, which contributed to "the impact that they made" to the growing body positivity movement.

"We can look at everybody’s shapes and sizes, gender, ethnicity, and age as part of who they are; it doesn’t have to be a negative or a positive," she said. "It should be something that’s easily embraced, and we don’t need to be having these conversations all the time. Our bodies are always changing, and they’re always evolving. I’ve been using my own body as a tool to be able to talk about these feelings."

While this is the crux of Graham's career at this point, she still considers it "an honor" to use her story and her platform to make change in the fashion industry.

"[It] also comes with a lot of responsibility—responsibility I don’t take lightly," she continued. "It reminds me that if someone like me can be part of something that’s changing globally, we can all do it. In a lot of ways I look at myself as just a normal girl from Nebraska who just has a lot of drive and ambition, so why don’t we change the world together?"

'Bed Rotting' Is Hottest Self-Care Trend For Gen Z


"Bed rot" has gone viral.

While TikTok's latest self-care trend may have a repulsive-sounding name, "bed rotting" simply means laying in bed for lengthy periods of time -- something many a teenager across generations is familiar with.

Gen Z, of course, has taken it to a new level and branded "rotting" away in bed as a form of self-therapy -- and hundreds of millions of people are taking an interest in the practice.

Bed rot, with over 308 million views on TikTok, has it's own influencers and self-proclaimed experts.

The practice does not define what can or cannot be done while in bed in order to qualify as "rotting" -- cuddling, streaming TV shows, doom scrolling on your phone, and a myriad of other activities are all seen as acceptable as long as it takes place on a bed.

Men fighting over Megan Fox, in 2023?

‘Unhinged’ Machine Gun Kelly went ‘ballistic’ on All-American Rejects singer over Megan Fox

All-American Rejects singer Tyson Ritter claims Machine Gun Kelly went “ballistic” on him after he approached the rocker’s fiancée, Megan Fox, with a scene idea for their new movie, “Johnny & Clyde.”

“I go over [to Fox’s trailer] and there’s her man in there with her. This Colson guy, who you know as Machine Gun Kelly. I call him ‘Pistol Pete,’” Ritter, 39, said on Tuesday’s episode of the “Tuna on Toast with Stryker” podcast, referring to MGK’s real name: Colson Baker.

Ritter had told Fox, 37, that he wanted to put his fingers in her mouth during her death scene, explaining, “She’s like a villain, I’m like her henchman.”

“I was like, ‘Hey Megan, you know, I wanted to talk to you about this moment where when you die, because you’ve been teasing me, putting your fingers in my mouth, that when you’re dead, I put my fingers in your mouth,’” he recalled, adding, “And it’s sort of this resolution to my character, like getting his revenge.”

But MGK, 33, allegedly flipped out over Ritter’s acting suggestion for the Tom DeNucci-directed horror flick, which was released this month.

“Colson like just goes from zero to like rage and awesome, super angry,” Ritter said. “He was super bummed about me asking if I could put my fingers in Megan Fox’s mouth and I knew she was right there and he just went ballistic. He kind of went maniac mode.”

However, Ritter said that MGK’s alleged meltdown was the best thing that could have happened to him – as he used the episode as inspiration for the other film he was working on at the time.

“What happened after that was the greatest sort of gift for my role in the other film ‘Prisoner’s Daughter,’” he explained.

Ritter said that his character in “Prisoner’s Daughter” has a scene where he “goes from zero to ape s–t” and that he was “really struggling” with how to flip a switch and needed to “figure it out.”

“I remember when ‘Pistol Pete’ started going ape on me, I was like, ‘This is really confrontational, but also, like, thank you dude.’”

The lead vocalist suggested that MGK “might have been having a bad day” but that they never made up after their tense moment.

“No resolution. I was just like, I think the whole experience was like, what the actual f–k is happening?” Ritter recalled.

“He had this like baby’s arm of a joint dangling out of his mouth and he was fully unhinged and I was just like, ‘OK man, I’ll just receive you.’ ’Cause obviously it wasn’t gonna be anything crazy. But yeah that was … holy s–t. It was the greatest gift.”

As for how Fox handled the situation, Ritter said she was “such a sweetheart to work with.”

“It was kind of just a really singular moment. So yeah, that’s that story,” Ritter said.

One of the wittiest and sassiest first ladies in history.

Barbara ran the White House like she did her household- with a humorous iron fist.

She was a major activist for family literacy, education, mental healthy issues, historical preservation, gay and women's rights, and AIDS relief.

Despite being from a wealthy New England family, an education from Smith, and an affinity for the arts, Barbara was also down-to-Earth and relatable.

At the age of 24 he was given an opportunity granted to few and dreamed of by many, when he took over the maestro's baton of the Boston Symphony Orchestra in mid-concert after their conductor had fallen ill. Since then, flair and good looks have helped him gain international recognition. While his ambition to bring music to the people has made him something of a television star in the United States.

At 43, he was tapped to be the principal conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra and seven years later to lead the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra until his retirement in 2020. He loves all music and his admires love him. They call him the most exciting American conductor since Leonard Bernstein.

Jerry Hall's sister Rosy Hall has died

She was one of the original 7 Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders and quite a beauty in her own right.

I remember reading Marjorie Hall (Jerry's mom)'s obit years ago, and was surprised to see was HS valedictorian and seemed jarringly...normal.

Marjorie Sheffield Hall Chamberlain was born October 15, 1924 in Nixon, TX. She is preceded in death by her parents, Pearl and Oscar Sheffield, and one brother, Walter. She is survived by her husband, Frank Chamberlain; her five daughters, Linda Cain and husband, Clint, Cyndy Hill and husband, John, Rosy, Terry, and Jerry Hall; her stepchildren, Karen Guthrie and husband, Drew, Steve Chamberlain and wife, Pam, Gail Blair, Guy Chamberlain and wife, Martina, and Melody Chatham and husband, Mike; her 24 grandchildren; and 19 great-grandchildren. Marjorie was the valedictorian of Smiley High School and worked as a Medical Records Librarian for 34 years. She was recently awarded Senior Citizen of the Year for her charitable works with the Altrusa International of Garland. She loved painting, fishing, gardening, and dancing. Marjorie and Frank enjoyed raising cattle on their farm in East Texas; and she was a member of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. She passed away surrounded by her loving family. Funeral services will be held at 10:30AM Thursday, February 7, 2013 at New Liberty Baptist Church with Bro. Ken Ashlock officiating and interment to follow at Garland Memorial Park. The family will accept visitors from 6-9PM Wednesday evening at the Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Altrusa International of Garland. (www.altrusagarland.com)

Multiple personalities were all the rage back then, but 'Sybil' fell apart when it was revealed to be a collaboration between a writer who wanted attention and a doctor who was pretty crazy herself.

Alexandra Jacobs writes:

[quote]The book is a historical curiosity and [bold]a cautionary tale of mass cultural delusion that makes one wonder what current voguish diagnoses[/bold] — witness the “TikTok tics” — might warrant closer interrogation.

[quote]The notion of multiple personalities has remained big business.

What's happened to Marilyn (Boy George's former bff)

Back in 2016, he was clean, working on new music etc, doing interviews (e.g. this Classic Pop feature). Now, he seems to rely on fan donations via Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and Instagram. There are various stories, including that his mother won the lottery and gave him £1M, which either he burned through or which his then-boyfriend Adam burned through, before revealing himself to have been an escort all along and leaving Marilyn once the money was used up. Then there were rumours Marilyn had gone back on the gear (maybe crack this time, rather than heroin), but was then doing a medicated detox and trying to get clean again. There are Instagram videos in recent years where he seems to be high as a kite. During the lottery period, there were pictures of flashy cars and luxury flats in London and Margate. Now he seems to be filming himself in a dingy room with damp walls, possibly the spare bedroom at his ailing mother's house.

So just when are we going to get the album that, according to the Classic Pop interview, was meant to be imminent? Will Marilyn rise again and become a world-dominating star?

Cute off-duty Marine Hunter Antonino and other Marines attacked by teens on Calif. beach

Shocking video has captured a mob of up to 40 teens viciously beating a trio of off-duty Marines who say they’d merely asked them to stop lighting fireworks on a California beach.

The now-viral footage shows the Marines — enjoying time off for Memorial Day weekend — being followed by the baying mob while walking toward San Clemente Pier Bowl late Friday.

“We told them we were Marines so they would leave — but they didn’t. They just kept going at it,” one of the attacked servicemen, Hunter Antonino, told KCAL News.

As they start walking up some steps, some in the group behind yell for them to “get the f–k outta here” — before one runs up from behind and sucker-punches the trailing serviceman.

After a brief hesitation, the Marine drops what’s in his hand and charges at his attacker, knocking him down.

Instantly, the mob swarms around him, throwing wild punches and screaming abuse. “Get that f—er! Get that f—er! F–k that f—er up!” one repeatedly shouts.

The attacked Marine and one of his pals are left crunched into the fetal position on the ground, their hands and arms covering their heads as the mob continues to kick, punch and stamp them.

“What’s good n–ger,” one of the group asks, as others call them “p—ies” and the initial sucker-punching thug pours a drink over one of them.

The nearly minute-long clip shows the attack only ending when a man and woman rush in and scream at them to stop.

At least one other Marine was also attacked, although he was not seen in the clip.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department initially estimated 10 to 30 teens and young adults were involved — but footage from afar suggested way more, with seemingly at least 40 swarming the men on the beach.

The department vowed to investigate the attack “until all individuals responsible are identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

Bird flu...thoughts?

This video is really informative. She even explains why bird flu is always named H#N#, etc.

But the bottom line is that she says it's a real threat.

I remember a lot of pandemic scares throughout my life, and it always felt like Chicken Little...SARS, bird flu, swine flu, MERS, West Nile, Zika and so on.

None turned into a real pandemic of the level COVID did. But maybe that is because they were controlled. I remember that Obama asked Congress for $1 billion in emergency funding to combat Zika, and part of the response was that the CDC sprayed the southeast USA with an anti-mosquito poison, which then was criticized because it killed off a billion bees and potentially poisoned drinking water, and it turned out that 'indoor mosquitoes' spread Zika, anyway, and those mosquitoes mostly would not be exposed to outdoor poison sprays. Oops! Nevertheless, Zika did not catch on here.

Even after COVID, "bird flu" just doesn't sound really threatening because there have been several bird flu threats over several years that never rose to meet the levels of the hype.

And post-COVID, I feel really stupid for not buying into the hype because now I finally know why public-health experts panic over this stuff.

Years ago, I interviewed an antibiotics researcher from the CDC and she said one of the greatest threats to humanity is the threat of zoonotic infectious disease transfer from animals to humans combined with antimicrobial drug resistance caused not by overprescribing antibiotics to human beings, but because the animal-farming industry feeds unmeasured huge heaps of antibiotics to farm animals to accelerate their growth so they can be killed and sold as meat more quickly for bigger profit. She said the CDC and HHS have zero say over that practice because it falls under the departments of agriculture and commerce, even though it is a top public health threat. THAT scared me.

They really signed a new contract! Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello hold hands in NYC after Coachella PDA.

Another “Summer of Love” is on the horizon.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello were spotted holding hands Tuesday after sparking rumors that they have reconciled their romance.

The pair walked hand in hand in New York City after the “In My Blood” crooner picked up a coffee.

Mendes, 24, showed off his biceps and tattoos in a gray tank top, light-wash jeans and white sneakers, while the “Havana” songstress, 26, wore a black leather jacket over a cropped white shirt, loose-fitting

The outing comes one month after the “Señorita” collaborators reunited at the 2023 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, where fans caught them making out on video.

While a source told Page Six exclusively in April that Mendes and Cabello were “not back together” but simply “friends with a lot of love and history between them,” a second insider shared that the stars were “enjoying getting reacquainted and seeing where it goes.”

In addition, Cabello teased a song titled “June Gloom” on Instagram with lyrics seemingly inspired by her on-again beau: “Are you coming to Coachella? / If you don’t, it’s whatever / If you do, honey, it’ll be all I think about.”

However, neither has directly addressed the current status of their relationship.

The Grammy nominees previously dated from July 2019 to November 2021.

When they announced their breakup, they shared that they would “continue to be best friends” whose “love for one another as humans [was] stronger than ever.”

During their separation, Cabello dated Lox Club co-founder Austin Kevitch for eight months.

Mendes, for his part, was linked to chiropractor Jocelyne Miranda and actress-singer Sabrina Carpenter.

What is something you think straight people will never be able to understand about gay people?

Taken from a Reddit thread (linked below). Interested to see how DL responds in comparison since we tend to skew a tiny bit (cough, cough) older...

Top answer on Reddit was this - It’s pretty much a universal experience for gay people to instinctually feel extremely different, even like an alien, during puberty. It’s one of those things where everybody feels different during puberty, everyone talks about puberty being a “confusing” and “hormonal” time, but when you’re gay, you know you’re different and you know it’s not just about “your body going through changes” like what everyone else seems to be so concerned about.

OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR: NYC ‘Karen’ Placed on Leave After Viral CitiBike Incident

The white woman dubbed online as a "Karen" after she was seen allegedly attempting to steal a CitiBike from a Black man who had already rented it has been placed on leave by her employer. Video of the encounter went viral after it was shared on Saturday, showing the unidentified woman, wearing a NYC Health & Hospitals uniform, screaming for help while the man attempts to stop her from taking the bike. NYC Health + Hospitals confirmed to The Daily Beast that the woman, who works at Bellevue Hospital, has been placed on leave, pending review, after the “disturbing” video surfaced. It has since been viewed more than 40 million times. “We are aware of the video involving a health care provider off duty and away from the hospital campus. The incident in the video is disturbing,” a spokesperson for NYC Health + Hospitals said. “The provider is currently out on leave and will remain on leave pending a review. As a health system we are committed to providing an environment for our patients and staff that is free from discrimination of any kind.” A DCPI spokesperson told the Post “the NYPD is aware of the video circulating online but nothing was reported.”

Jan. 6 defendant who put foot on desk in Pelosi's office sentenced to 4 and a half years in prison

Washington — An Arkansas man who was photographed propping his foot on a desk in the House speaker's office during the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol was sentenced to 4 and a half years in prison on Wednesday, with a judge saying he had "not shown any acceptance of responsibility."

Richard "Bigo" Barnett was convicted on eight counts including civil disorder, obstruction of an official proceeding and theft of government property after a trial earlier this year. A photo showing him seated at a desk in then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office became one of the most indelible images of Jan. 6.

On Wednesday, he appeared in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia before Judge Christopher Cooper, who handed down his sentence of 54 months. Prosecutors had sought a prison term of more than seven years, noting that Barnett admitted to entering the Capitol wielding a stun gun and carrying an American flag. Cooper seemed skeptical of some of the government's arguments and imposed a shorter sentence.

Barnett addressed the court during Wednesday's sentencing hearing, saying he was "not proud" of his conduct but arguing it was not "threatening."

The East Coast is snippy. The West is largely uncut.

I just discovered this website that visualizes data on US maps.

This page shows circumcision rates by state. I am definitely an East Coaster through and through!

The site also visualizes data on infant mortality rates, maternal mortality rates, IQ, life expectancy, food stamp use, obesity, et. by state. Unsurprisingly, Republican states that are "pro-life" and force childbirths have the highest infant and maternal death rates by far, as a rule, and those states that oppose public social safety nets like food stamps of course have the highest rates of food stamp use.

The suicide rate map is interesting. It doesn't follow political lines so much—although those good Christians who regard suicide as an unforgivable sin ensuring condemnation in eternal hellfire do have the highest rates—but the common thread seems to be social isolation. Wyoming has the highest suicide rate and it and other less-dense populations have more suicides per capita than states with big cities and dense populations.

Biden, GOP Reach Tentative Deal To Raise Debt Ceiling, Avoid Calamitous US Default

The Democratic president and Republican speaker reached the agreement after the two spoke earlier Saturday evening.

President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy reached an “agreement in principle” to raise the nation’s legal debt ceiling late Saturday as they raced to strike a deal to limit federal spending and avert a potentially disastrous U.S. default.

However, the agreement risks angering both Democratic and Republican sides with the concessions made to reach it. Negotiators agreed to some Republican demands for increased work requirements for recipients of food stamps that had sparked an uproar from House Democrats as a nonstarter.

Lizzo Becomes First Black Woman Headliner at Napa Festival, Greeted With "Unkind Signs"

Lizzo made history as BottleRock Napa Valley festival’s first Black woman headliner. Unfortunately, what should’ve been a joyous moment was marred by unkind signs awaiting the singer as she arrived at the event’s venue. Before introducing her chart-topping fourth studio album, “Special,” the “Truth Hurts” singer had some words for the unfriendly reception.

“I saw some signs that were very unfriendly towards people like me,” Lizzo told fans on Saturday at the Jam Cellars Stage for her headlining set. “I saw signs talking about how they want to cancel people like me. Silence people like me. Choke people like me. And they right across the street. So we gonna sing this one more time so they can hear it because maybe they haven’t heard it in a long time.”

Although Lizzo didn’t confirm what the signs read according to the San Francisco Chronicle some stated, “Choke the Woke” and “Cancel Cancel Culture.” In true Lizzo fashion, she didn’t allow the haters to stop her from giving a high-energy performance. She still brought all the good vibes to the stage where she celebrated body positivity and freedom of self-expression. In addition, throughout her performance, she assured her fans that “this is a safe space.” The Grammy winner even paused her set for a meditation breathing exercise. At one point, she draped the LGBTQIA+ flag over herself and declared, “Drag is not a crime!”

Lizzo has come a long way since her breakthrough album, “Cuz I Love You,” back in 2019, which earned her eight Grammy nominations and three wins. She could do no wrong while on stage at BottleRock with her fierce ensemble all-female band, three backing vocalists, and the dynamic nine-member dance troupe, the Big Grrrls. Other artists to hit the stage at the sold-out event included Leon Bridges, Duran Duran, and Nile Rodger and Chic.

31 billionaires are worth more than the US Treasury has in cash

Cash levels at the US Treasury are tumbling toward a dangerously low level as Washington waits until the last minute to raise the debt ceiling.

As of the close of business on May 25, Treasury had just $38.8 billion in cash, according to the latest federal data. That’s down from more than $200 billion earlier this month and nearing the bare minimum level of $30 billion.

For context, 31 billionaires are each worth more than the federal government’s $38.8 billion in cash, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Some of them, like fashion mogul Bernard Arnault – are worth a lot more. Arnault, the chairman of luxury goods maker LVMH, has a net worth estimated at $193 billion. Tesla billionaire Elon Musk is worth $185 billion and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has a net worth of $144 billion.

Los Angeles - interesting spots

Heading to LA for a weekend in a few weeks.

Have been to downtown LA (which quite frankly was not impressive) and a few tourist spots (the Getty, Griffith Park), but this time will probably be trying to stay away from that.

Just wondering if there are any cute little streets/neighborhoods with cafes/record stores/bookstores etc. or any sort of old eldergay approved places to check out (little farmers markets, vintage stores, pie shops, so on).

Would love to hear about anything in/around LA. Coming in initially from near Pasadena.

Student Loan Payments are back on!! Debt Ceiling 2023!

uh oh. Part of the Debt Ceiling compromise. Even if Biden punts to SCOTUS the loans will be reinstated because of that whole 6-3 thing. What are people supposed to do who cannot pay the money back?

Republicans have long sought to reel back the Biden administration’s efforts to provide student loan relief and aid to millions of borrowers during the coronavirus pandemic. While the GOP proposal to rescind the White House’s plan to waive $10,000 to $20,000 in debt for nearly all borrowers failed to make it into the package, Biden agreed to put an end to the pause on student loan repayment.

Once Biden signs the package, the pause in student loan repayments would end within 60 days.

The fate of student loan relief, meanwhile, will be decided at the Supreme Court, which is dominated 6-3 by its conservative wing. During oral arguments in the case, several of the justices expressed deep skepticism about the legality of Biden’s plan. A decision is expected before the end of June.

“Places, Please” to star Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates?

“Places, Please” is centered on “Lillian Hall, an actress who is synonymous with Broadway. Throughout her long, illustrious career, she has never missed a performance—not for her daughter, not for illness, not for any reason. Yet in the rehearsals leading to her next Broadway production, her confidence is challenged. People and events conspire to take away her ability to do what she loves most. Suddenly, Hall is forced to reckon with the past and the price she has paid for the choices she made in her life and her art. Can she repair a lifetime of parental neglect? Can she reconcile herself to the demands of aging, its real and perceptual debilities? Can she navigate the shoals of self-doubt and loss, the betrayals of others and of her own body? Will she go down in the record books in a blaze of glory? Not without a fight.”

It seems Lange and Bates are attached to this. Although they aren’t yet listed on the film’s official IMDb Pro page, Robin Beauchesne and Chris Clark (XIII) have been credited as “Make-Up Artist to Jessica Lange” and “Hair Stylist to Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates,” respectively.

In 2021, Meryl Streep was set to star in this film, which is being directed by Michael Cristofer and was supposed to begin filming in New York during the summer of 2021. In 2022, Glenn Close replaced Streep, and Kathy Bates joined the cast, with filming set for January of this year.

“If she were a Democrat, she’d be on every fashion magazine … they would be making her to be the biggest deal. But because we’re conservative, we know that that’s not what happens. In reality, it will be the opposite, where they try to really attack,” DeSantis said on the Mark Levin Show.

The Governor went on to say Mrs. DeSantis is being attacked because “she is an incredibly effective First Lady.”

“She’s somebody that people look up to,” the Governor said. “Not just women, although many of the women in Florida who have gone through breast cancer look at her as a role model for how she handled it.”

“She’s made huge improvements to communities in Florida by helping underprivileged people,” he continued. “And she believes in the values of the country and she can articulate that in a way that people really get excited about.”

Shoppers bypass the meat aisle, as recession looms

Costco shoppers are reining back on pricier products, and it's a good indicator that they're prepping for a recession.

In a call with investors on Thursday, executives from the warehouse chain shared insights into how their members are shopping, what they're swapping into their baskets, and what's being left behind.

CFO Richard Galanti said that some of its customers are ditching pricier beef products for cheaper meats such as pork and chicken. This is a trend that has been common in previous recessions, he said.

Others are bypassing the fresh meat aisle entirely and opting for canned meat and fish products. These items cost less and have a longer shelf life.

There are other indicators showing that Costco's customers are feeling the pinch. For example, the portion of sales from Costco's private label brand — Kirkland — grew during the most recent quarter. These products cost less than national brands and are a quick way for customers to save money on their weekly shop.

Moreover, the average daily transaction at Costco was down 4.2% worldwide and 3.5% in the US during the quarter. Costco said this number was primarily impacted by the drop in sales of big-ticket nonfood items, such as TVs and fridges.

As food prices have stayed high, some higher-income shoppers have chosen to switch up their weekly shopping routine entirely.

Discount chains like Dollar Tree and Dollar General say they've been big beneficiaries of this and are seeing a new customer base come to their store to shop for groceries.

Vegas looking to fuck over everyone except for rich gamblers

Las Vegas casinos are stacking the deck, figuratively speaking, in a bid to cater more exclusively to high rollers amid a flood of visitors to the gaming mecca.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the industry believes it has so many gamblers coming to the Strip to lose their money that if can afford to weed out the undesirables by lowering the odds and shrinking the payoff.

“You’re kicking out the lowest end,” explained Caesars Entertainment CEO Tom Reeg during a call with analysts this month. “I see no reason that that needs to stop or would stop.”

Casinos in the city raked in a record $8.3 billion in revenue from card games, slot machines, and other forms of table betting like roulette last year, even as the number of visitors failed to reach the 2019 pre-pandemic levels.

Las Vegas is awash in revenue, allowing it to even finance a Major League Baseball stadium, after officials clinched a deal with Oakland Athletics owner John Fisher. It would be the second time the Bay Area city opposite San Francisco lost a professional sports team to Las Vegas.

With the draw of stars like Taylor Swift and K-pop sensation BTS playing in Allegiant Stadium, the new home of the Raiders NFL football team since 2020, casinos can apparently afford to be picky with the kind of gamblers they want.

“Reeg believes that these events are bringing in kind of a higher-tier clientele, if you will, that’s replacing maybe lower tiers or mid-tiers, and that’s what’s adding to the sustainability of these gaming revenue numbers,” Michael Lawton, a senior economic analyst with the Nevada Gaming Control Board, said earlier this month.

According to the WSJ, analysts at Vegas Advantage estimate that more than two-thirds of all blackjack tables on the Strip are now only offering only 6:5 payouts as opposed to more favorable 3:2 ratio they have historically offered when a player hits 21 on the first two cards.

That means a $10 bet only nets an additional two in winnings instead of the traditional five dollars—and it’s not just card games like blackjack that are exhibiting signs of deteriorating odds for gamblers.

Vegas Advantage also estimates the number of so-called “triple zero” roulette tables that feature an extra slot, thereby mathematically lowering the chance of winning, has soared. Whereas once these harder tables were a rarity with only a few in operation back in 2016, they hit 78 last year and are quickly encroaching on the 111 double-zero tables that are slightly more favorable for participants.

Finally, casinos are also shutting down table games, citing the rising costs for paying their dealers, in favor of more automated electronic games.

The good times may be over, at least temporarily. Fitch Ratings forecast in January a demand pullback in the U.S. following last year’s “exceptionally strong performance” for the industry that is traditionally led by Nevada and more specifically by the Strip.

Going forward, monthly comparisons will become tougher, as gaming revenue either hit an all-time high or marked its second best result ever. Data for March, the most recent period reported, showed Nevada gaming revenue edged lower by three-tenths of a percent on the back of lower intake from baccarat.

Lawton remains bullish thanks to convention attendance, special events, and sports teams moving to Las Vegas, which accounted for 95% of Nevada’s growth in gaming revenue in 2022.

“A year ago we had done 13 consecutive months [of $1 billion dollars in statewide revenue] and I was concerned about the sustainability,” he said. “And here we are now, we’re at 25, and it’s not a fluke, it looks like that is the new baseline.”

One of those high rollers the Strip wants to cater to could be LeBron James: Earlier this year the basketball star expressed interest in owning an NBA team in Las Vegas.

A scientist who created Ozempic explains how the drug works

Now you can stick a needle in your belly, and change your brain's appetite for food.

The injectable drugs Ozempic and Wegovy, and their generic counterpart semaglutide, have been hailed as blockbuster treatments for obesity and diabetes because they can often help people lose excess weight they've struggled with for years. In many cases, patients have said these drugs are succeeding where all other diets, exercise, and medicines have failed before.

Karin Conde-Knape, senior vice president of global drug discovery at Novo Nordisk, the company that makes the drugs, says the reason why these medications have such stunning results is simple. It's because the drugs change people's brains, regulating hunger signals in a whole new way.

Ozempic and Wegovy help people feel full while eating less "because of a direct effect on satiety," Conde-Knape explained on Wednesday during CNBC's Healthy Returns Summit. Patients report feeling satisfied with less food than they would have eaten before.

In addition to quantity of food, the drug also controls "the type of food that we are craving," Conde-Knape said, by "tackling a different part of the brain that also signals through the sensations of satisfaction when you eat certain types of foods."

Patients have said Ozempic makes them less interested in formerly favorite foods, like Chick-fil-A, coffee, alcohol and Kit Kats, and more into kale and smoothies.

Ozempic does this by mimicking a compound people produce naturally in our intestines, called GLP-1. GLP-1 is a hunger-regulating hormone, and it's similar to a compound Gila monsters harbor in their venom. But GLP-1 mimicking drugs "can last longer" and "have a more durable effect" than the natural hormones, Conde-Knape said.

In addition to its effects on the brain, Ozempic also slows down digestion, and can help regulate blood sugar, by slowing the production of glucose in the liver.

The most common side effects of Ozempic include stomach cramps, nausea, and other GI issues like diarrhea, vomiting, and constipation.

It might seem like weight loss is a simple energy in versus energy out equation, but "the brain regulation of energy intake and output is actually quite complex," Conde-Knape said.

Most obese patients have some kind of "genetic component" that is also driving their disease, she said, and then there are likely environmental factors at work, too, which are still not well understood.

"The GLP-1 that is secreted from the intestine signals through the brain in the specific areas that actually control how much hunger we have, but also how full we feel after we have a meal," Conde-Knape added. "And in individuals that maybe are suffering more with obesity, there is a deregulation in this."

But, just like a real hormone, Ozempic won't work to control your appetite once you stop taking it, which is why many patients regain much of the weight they lost within a few months or years, once they discontinue the medication.

"We are not yet able to redefine that body-wide setpoint," Conde-Knape said. "The quest in identifying better mechanisms for obesity is not over yet."

Independent consulting is too much hassle and weirdness!

Heads up, guys. I'm a 40 year old female independent financial analyst - glorified numbers cruncher. It's cake work and I'm just another competent person who can practically do this in my sleep. But there are so many self-important but small-fry nut jobs in my niche domaine and getting gigs and dealing with such freaks just isn't worth it anymore. I'm going back to corporate.

The heads up is about a creepy stalker who interviewed me the other day for some lousy, underpaid, couple months gig. Out of control OCD narcissist and apparently he posts on this forum. I'm straight and I've never heard of Datalounge but it looks like you have some fun.

Listen, if you run across this guy, you'll recognise the Fatal Attraction Alex Forrest vibe mixed with a Mommie Dearest "I'm mad at the dirt" distraction technique. (I love those movies!)

He's been stalking me for three weeks with emails and calls, and triangulating me among my peers and mutual contacts. I think he's cracked into confidential information and I'm upping my own online fire walls.

I finally decided to interview because it is well known in our domaine that this troll reacts violently to perceived disrespect and disinterest. I figured I could be polite but distant, give a poor presentation, and pray he would reject me and move on to his next victim.

Well, that was a mistake. The stalking has accelerated. I'm considering a restraining order.

If you have engaged with him, back away slowly with a smile on your face. Stay socially curteous because he has a stick up his needy and unfucked asshole about protocol rules, many invested by his royal self. I vaguely know his husband who is a nice guy and I can't imagine why he stays with this little insufferable tyrant.

And don't believe anything self-reported about him. He's 55 if he's a day, not "early forties", and he looks every miserable year of it. No amount of strip mall botox, Guerlain Terracotta, Everlane and sassy bro fragrances can mask this decrepit troll.

Ken Paxton, Texas attorney general, impeached by state House of Representatives

Austin, Texas — The GOP-led Texas House of Representatives on Saturday voted decisively to impeach Attorney General Ken Paxton, who had 20 articles of impeachment brought up against him earlier this week.

The final vote was 121 voting to impeach, with 23 voting against impeachment and two voting present. Paxton will now be immediately removed from his job pending a Senate trial.

The 20 articles of impeachment against Paxton included accusations of bribery, obstruction of justice and abuse of the public trust. Paxton has been under FBI investigation for years over accusations that he used his office to help a donor and was separately indicted on securities fraud charges in 2015.

Paxton released a statement immediately after the vote calling it an "ugly spectacle" and said it was a "politically motivated sham since the beginning."

"[House Speaker Dade] Phelan's coalition of Democrats and liberal Republicans is now in lockstep with the Biden Administration, the abortion industry, anti-gun zealots, and woke corporations to sabotage my work as Attorney General, including our ongoing litigation to stop illegal immigration, uphold the rule of law and protect the constitutional right of every Texan," Paxton said.

Paxton's wife, Angela Paxton, is a state senator and could preside over the trial.

‘Twilight’ star Rachelle Lefevre rips apart Target over 'erasing gay people'

“Twilight” star Rachelle Lefevre accused Target of “trying to erase” LGBTQ people after it removed its “PRIDE” collection from the front of its stores following backlash from conservatives.

The actress blasted the retailer for engaging in “performative allyship” that she said falsely gave her 7-year-old child a sense of acceptance upon seeing the front-of-store Pride Month display.

“I came in here two days ago and my 7-year-old, who’s nonbinary, saw it and said, ‘Look, Mom, it’s pride Look, they’re going to celebrate me,'” the Canadian actress said in an Instagram post while holding back tears.

“I can’t bring them here anymore, at least for the entire month of June, because if they walk in, and all the other people who walk in and go, ‘Where’d it go?’ are going to realize that they are being successful in trying to erase them.”

“We’re not supposed to negotiate with terrorists,” she added.

Target suffered a $9 billion market loss in just one week following an uproar over its LGBTQ-friendly clothing line, which featured “tuck-friendly” women’s swimsuits and rainbow-colored onesies for infants.

The backlash included several violent demonstrations in which conservatives — including one wearing a MAGA hat — stormed stores to tear down Pride signs, badger workers and even leave a case of Bud Light alongside the offending items.

The mega-retailer, fearing a “Bud Light situation,” rushed to move the “PRIDE” collection to the back of the store, or in some cases out of locations entirely.

In a follow-up video, Lefevre, who played the vampire Victoria in “Twilight,” encouraged LGBTQ individuals to find joy in their daily lives in spite of the criticism.

Sia reveals she’s on autism spectrum 2 years after ‘Music’ casting controversy

Sia revealed she has received a late diagnosis of autism.

“I’m on the spectrum, and I’m in recovery and whatever — there’s a lot of things,” the “Chandelier” singer said Thursday during a candid conversation with “Survivor” Season 44 finalist Carolyn Wiger on “Rob Has a Podcast,” noting that she is also sober.

Sia, 47, did not disclose when she was diagnosed with the developmental disability, which the CDC says can be “detected at 18 months of age or younger,” though she suggested it was recently.

“For 45 years, I was like … ‘I’ve got to go put my human suit on,'” she explained. “And only in the last two years have I become fully, fully myself.”

While relating to the quirks that made Wiger, 36, one of the most beloved “Survivor” contestants of all time, Sia shared that she has learned to accept herself unapologetically as of late.

“Nobody can ever know and love you when you’re filled with secrets and … living in shame,” she said, “and when we finally sit in a room full of strangers and tell them our deepest, darkest, most shameful secrets, and everybody laughs along with us, and we don’t feel like pieces of trash for the first time in our lives, and we feel seen for the first time in our lives for who we actually are, and then we can start going out into the world and just operating as humans and human beings with hearts and not pretending to be anything.”

Sia, whose full name is Sia Furler, made the revelation two years after coming under fire for casting Maddie Ziegler, who is neurotypical, as a nonverbal autistic girl in her movie “Music.”

The Grammy nominee defended herself at the time, tweeting that her “heart has always been in the right place” and urging critics to “watch my film before you judge it.”

She subsequently apologized to the autism community and added a “warning” to the beginning of the 2021 musical drama that read: “‘Music’ in no way condones or recommends the use of restraint on autistic people. There are autistic occupational therapists that specialize in sensory processing who can be consulted to explain safe ways to provide proprioceptive, deep-pressure feedback to help with meltdown safety.”

The backlash left a mark on Sia, though, as she said in a 2022 interview that she was suicidal, relapsed and went to rehab after the Razzie-nominated flick’s release.

Jennifer Garner takes daughter Seraphina, Jennifer Lopez’s child Emme to Disneyland.

Let’s get loud for this blended family.

Jennifer Garner spent part of her Memorial Day Weekend at Disneyland on Sunday, along with her and ex Ben Affleck’s youngest daughter, Seraphina, and Jennifer Lopez’s child Emme.

The trio was spotted enjoying several rides and, at one point, the “Elektra” actress even stopped to take pictures of the kids together.

Garner, 51, dressed casually for her fun-filled day, wearing a blue long-sleeved shirt with a yellow smiley face on the front, jeans and sneakers.

The mom of three shares Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and son Samuel, 10, with Affleck, who is now married to Lopez.

The “On The Floor” singer shares twins Max and Emme, both 15, with ex-husband Marc Anthony.

Lopez, 53, and the “Vivir Mi Vida” singer, 54, ended their marriage in 2011, while Garner and Affleck, 50, called it quits after a decade of marriage in 2015.

Affleck tied the knot with Lopez in July 2022 in Las Vegas.

At the time, the “Enough actress said she and Affleck stood in line for their marriage license along with four other couples.

Since reuniting at the altar, Lopez and Affleck have been candid about bringing their families together.

Earlier this month, the “Hustlers” actress revealed how Emme — who Lopez refers to with “they/them” pronouns — and Max really feel about their new stepdad.

“They love Ben,” she said on the “Today” show on May 3. “He’s a wonderful, wonderful father. And a father figure to them as well, because he has his own three beautiful children, and then there’s us.”

The following day, Lopez also gave insight into Affleck and Garner’s co-parenting style, noting that he is an “amazing dad” to his three children.

“It brings tears to my eyes, he is honestly the best dad I have ever seen,” she said during a May 4 appearance on “The View,” explaining that the “Good Will Hunting” star has taught her new things about how to interact with their children.

“He’s such a brilliant guy anyway, and you can tell that when he had his kids he must have read every book and everything that you could possibly learn about children, and he applies it.”

Clemente Del Vecchio, the world’s youngest billionaire.

Clemente Del Vecchio is one of the sons of Leonardo Del Vecchio and Sabina Grossi, founder of Luxottica and president of EssilorLuxottica, who died on June 27, 2022. At 18, he will turn 19 in May and is the youngest billionaire in the world. The world according to “Forbes”. Its capital should be around 3.5 billion dollars. Luxottica is a giant in the manufacture of lenses and eyeglasses, with its main factory in Agordo in the province of Belluno.

The well-known American business magazine Forbes reports that the average age of billionaires worldwide is 65, but there are very young heirs who find themselves making a fortune when their father dies. One of them is Clemente, the youngest son of the founder of Luxottica, the world’s largest manufacturer and seller of eyeglasses and lenses, with approximately 80,000 employees and more than 9,000 stores.

According to Forbes’ estimation last year, Leonardo’s legacy, who died in 2022, is $27.3 billion. Clemente is not an only child, he has five other brothers with whom he must share the inheritance. Therefore, his capital should be around 3.5 billion dollars. Clemente has five siblings. Clemente and Luca are the sons of Sabina Grossi and Leonardo Del Vecchio, who have two wives. From the first Luciana Nervo they had three children: Claudio, Marisa and Paola. With his second wife, Nicoletta Zampillo, he had a son: Leonardo Maria.

Target removes some LGBT merchandise amidst national backlash, violent confrontations, rumors of Satanist connection

NEW YORK (AP) — Target is removing certain items from its stores and making other changes to its LGBTQ merchandise nationwide ahead of Pride month, after an intense backlash from some customers including violent confrontations with its workers. “Since introducing this year’s collection, we’ve experienced threats impacting our team members’ sense of safety and well-being while at work,” Target said in a statement Tuesday. ”Given these volatile circumstances, we are making adjustments to our plans, including removing items that have been at the center of the most significant confrontational behavior.”

Part of the new “PRIDE” collection introduced by Target includes clothing made by a UK-based brand whose designer has expressed satanist views, according to a report.

Abprallen, a London-based company which is headed by a transgender man known as “Erik,” has reportedly been collaborating with Target for about a year, according to The Washington Examiner.

The collection includes sweatshirts and tote bags with messages that include “live laugh lesbian,” “cure transphobia not trans people,” “too queer for here,” and “we belong everywhere.”

Abprallen sells apparel that includes satanic imagery including pentagrams, horned skulls, and references to the devil.

One design found on the apparel maker’s T-shirts and pins has the message: “Satan respects pronouns.”

Last year, Erik wrote on the brand’s Instagram page: “Being called a demon is something I can cope with, and the idea of a trans demon is pretty damn cool, most of my work focusses [sic] on gothic or dark and satanic imagery juxtaposed with bright colours and LGBT+ positive messages.”

Your summer forecast, courtesy of the NYT

Forecasters are expecting a hotter summer in the Northeast because ocean temperatures near the coast are already much higher than usual. That might make for a pleasant swim at New England beaches; it will also increase the air temperature. Because coastal waters are a major factor in driving up temperatures, experts are less sure whether it will be a warmer summer inland, in places like western New York and Pennsylvania.

In the South, warmer weather is also likely, with a greater likelihood near the coasts. But the weather story of the summer may end up being the rain: In June, forecasters say, Florida and other southeastern states could be drenched, mainly because of some possible early-season tropical cyclones. It’s possible that the Midwest and Great Lakes also have a rainier summer than usual.

The Southwest will probably see above-average summer temperatures and below-average rainfall. That’s because the southwest monsoon — a seasonal shift of winds that help bring about rainstorms — is expected to have a sluggish start.

Forecasters predicted above-average temperatures for the West Coast, though they’re not as confident about it as they are for the East Coast. They are also expecting a drier-than-normal summer in the Northwest partly because El Niño, a Pacific weather pattern that is on the verge of forming in the summer, tends to lead to below-average rainfall.

Dear Brownsville: Please don't choose sculptor Hank Willis Thomas for Tina Turner statue !

The city Tina Turner once called home is planning to honor the music legend in a big way ... with a beautiful statue of her. Bill Rawls Jr., mayor of Brownsville, TN, tells TMZ ... he wants to prominently display the work of art, and he's getting a ton of support from local leaders. Mayor Rawls wants the piece placed in Brownsville's Heritage Park ... near Carver High School, which Tina attended. Tina was born in Brownsville and lived there during much her youth. Brownsville's already home to the Tina Turner Museum, so it seems fitting to have the piece smack dab in the middle of her hometown.

PLEASE DON'T CHOOSE HANK WILLIS THOMAS to do the honors. He's responsible for the MLK / Coretta Scott King sculpture in Boston titled 'Embrace' but more commonly known as 'Holding the Penis'.

Slate has a really interesting story today about auto dealers

Some interesting tidbits:

Auto dealers are one of the five most common professions among the top 0.1 percent of American earners. Car dealers, gas station owners, and building contractors, it turns out, make up the majority of the country’s 140,000 millionaires. Crunching numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau, data scientist and author Seth Stephens-Davidowitz found that over 20 percent of car dealerships in the U.S. have an owner banking more than $1.5 million per year.

And car dealers are not only one of the richest demographics in the United States. They’re also one of the most organized political factions—a conservative imperium giving millions of dollars to politicians at local, state, and national levels. They lobby through NADA, the organization staging the weekend’s festivities, and donate to Republicans at a rate of 6-to-1. Through those efforts, they’ve managed to write and rewrite laws to protect dealers and sponsor sympathetic politicians in all 50 states.

They spent a record $7 million on federal lobbying in 2022, far more than the National Rifle Association, and $25 million in 2020 just on federal elections, mostly to Republicans. The NADA PAC kicked in another $5 million.

Memorial Day gunfire erupts in Hollywood Beach, Florida

Four children, including a 1-year-old, were among nine people shot and wounded when gunfire erupted near a popular Florida beach packed with Memorial Day revelers, authorities said.

Gunfire erupted after two groups of men got into an altercation on the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, according to police and a witness.

Jamie Ward, who was on the Broadwalk, said several men were fighting in front of a row of stores when one pulled out a gun.

Some of the gunshot victims were caught in the crossfire, according to Hollywood police.

Authorities originally said one person was in custody and another suspect was being sought.

But during a follow-up press conference, Hollywood police said they were sending out photos of people they believe were involved in the shooting.

They did not say how many gunmen were involved as the probe is in the early stages.

The ages of the four minors shot range between 1 and 17, said Hollywood police spokesperson Deanna Bettineschi during the follow-up press conference streamed by NBC 6.

MEM'RIES: 18 years ago this weekend, Oprah hosted her 'Legends' Ball, with a star-studded guest list

How many of you attended "Oprah's Legends Ball" 18 years ago this weekend ? Ms. Winfrey, ever the gracious hostess kicked off the weekend that Friday afternoon with an elegant 'Legends Luncheon', held on her California 42 acre estate known as 'The Promised Land'. The celebration included the Friday luncheon, Saturday evening's white-tie ball, and Sunday's gospel brunch. Among the Legends being honored were also the 'legends on the rise' called 'the young'uns' by Oprah.

The 25 Legends who were honored were: Maya Angelou, Shirley Caesar, Diahann Carroll, Elizabeth Catlett, Ruby Dee, Katherine Dunham, Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin, Nikki Giovanni, Dorothy Height, Lena Horne, Coretta Scott King, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Toni Morrison, Rosa Parks, Leontyne Price, Della Reese, Diana Ross, Naomi Sims, Tina Turner, Cicely Tyson, Alice Walker, Dionne Warwick, and Nancy Wilson. (Lena Horne was unable to attend due to 'illness' ).

The "young'uns" invited included Alicia Keys, Ashanti, Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, Mary J. Blige, Brandy, Naomi Campbell, Mariah Carey, Natalie Cole, Kimberly Elise, Missy Elliott, Tyra Banks, Iman, Janet Jackson, Phylicia Rashad, Debbie Allen, Alfre Woodard, Yolanda Adams among others. Throughout the weekend, the "young'uns" paid homage to the "legends" for their great contributions.

After lunch, an army of waitstaff reappeared, this time carrying red alligator boxes. Oprah asked that all her guests open their gifts at once. There was a moment of silence. Then Angela Bassett let out a scream, Debbie Allen a fantastic shriek. Under her cloudlike hat, Cicely Tyson covered her face with her hands. Diahann Carroll stood up and exclaimed, "You have lost your incredible mind!" Inside each box was a pair of diamond earrings: A large hoop dripping with diamonds for the younger women, an elegant double teardrop for the Legends.

Barbara Walters, Barbra Streisand and her husband Jim Brolin, Nate Berkus, John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston, and a young Senator named Barack Obama and his wife Michele were all in attendance, as well. (Allegedly, it was this weekend when Oprah 'and others' pulled Obama aside and advised him to 'seriously consider running for the President in the next election.)

Talking to the press once the festivities were over, many of the attendees gave praise to their host and fellow guests.

"This is a magnificent thing, to bring these particular people together," Della Reese said. "This is love."

Diahann Carroll said Oprah pulled her aside with singer Diana Ross and asked them to join her in the kitchen. There, the two legends patched up their friendship which had broken nearly 35 years earlier, when Carroll accused Ross of stealing the movie 'Lady Sings The Blues' from her. (Ross always said she had nothing to do with it - it was Berry Gordy's idea). "It's been a long, long time" said Carroll to reporters, "but we made amends. We exchanged phone numbers and plan on meeting for dinner soon. A lot of time has past." Ross told the press she was happy to reconnect with Carroll after 'so many years wasted'.

The weekend did not go without criticism, though. Many reporters wanted to know why Whoopi Goldberg, Eartha Kitt and Donna Summer were not invited among others - all considered legends in Black Women History. (Oprah had no comment to the press about her guest list. Whoopi later said she felt 'slighted' but 'got over it', while Summer and Kitt had no comments).

Highlights from the weekend aired on ABC a year later.

Black Christmas (1974)

Omg why didn’t you sluts tell me about this gem? I’ve seen the 2006 and 2019 remakes but they both sucked (2006 was ok I guess) but never watched the original (didn’t even know about it until recently, I thought 2006 was an original) until recently and it is terrific. Omg.

I loved it. It’s one of the first slasher films ever, preceding Halloween and Friday the 13th. I love how the film still has a very strong Christmas atmosphere despite being a slasher. Gives the film a very unique quality and vibe.

I love Margot Kidder in this.

Asher Haynes Quits Helix


Dear Friends,

I would like to begin by expressing my heartfelt appreciation to all of you who have supported me and enjoyed my work in the adult entertainment industry. Your support has been invaluable, not only covering my essential living expenses but also enabling me to enjoy life's experiences.

However, today I am confronted with a difficult revelation about the studio where I've spent three years of my adult life. This is not an easy message to convey, but I find it crucial to do so: I have severed all ties with Helix Studios and distanced myself completely from anyone associated with them. Based on my personal experiences and observations, I am firmly convinced that this studio exploits vulnerable youth.

Recently, I received troubling information from a reliable source. I learned about alleged inappropriate interactions with minors that have occurred over the years, including grooming, coercion, and instances of date rape. I've also become increasingly uncomfortable with the circumstances surrounding the untimely deaths of some models during or after their affiliation with Helix.

In my view, Helix Studios has treated models as commodities, using them as resources and sources of income for their own benefit. Based on my own observations, I believe that Keith Miller, with the help of his staff, would give a nod of approval to those who offered substantial sums of money. These individuals were then permitted to manipulate and deceive models into meeting them, traveling to their locations, and subjecting them to unimaginable abuses.

Several years ago, I was threatened by a powerful man with considerable influence, connections, and wealth. I was warned that I might end up like Alex Riley if I didn't acquiesce to his demands. When I reported this to Keith Miller, the owner of Helix Studios, he reassured me that he had no connection with this man. Later, the same individual who threatened me showed me a conversation he'd had with Miller. The discussion was deeply unsettling. As I interpreted it, the models were spoken about in a predatory manner, which gave me the impression of discussions about sex trafficking.

The dialogue classified me, and every other model, into categories that made us feel disposable. Those of us who could not further involve ourselves in exchange for the coverage and income the studio offered for compliance were implicitly threatened. I firmly believe that the only reason I escaped harm was due to my standing within the studio, which afforded me more privileges than almost any other model, and my connections with influential people outside the adult entertainment industry.

I contend that many individuals, both male and female, lose their lives in this industry, and the contributing factors to their demise often go unnoticed. My hope is that this message will reach younger audiences contemplating a similar career path, so they might make a more informed decision.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Why are the kids so obsessed with doing donuts nowadays?

So pointless. Is this due to the increase in autism? “Oooh let’s make the car go around and around!”

Bitched Out By Bacall!!

Bitched Out By Bacall

Growing up I had pictures of her on my wall, Betty Jane Perske that was, a fatherless child with a smouldering stare: "The Look".

Years later I spent approximately a week's wages to attend a function at the Dorchester Hotel in London to hear her speak. I approached her at an appropriate moment, then timidly said "Ms. Bacall, I don't mean to bother you ...", to which she retorted "Well, DON'T then!" before imperiously sweeping past me. Which sounds all rather grand in retrospect but I was in tears. (That said, I was younger than anyone there by about half a century and she had just bitched in her address about "the younger generation" AND it was just after that panel at Cannes where she objected to Nicole Kidman being deemed a legend, so maybe it was all just down to unfortunate timing!) But still, Lauren?!? Oh, how I loved you! You hurt me more than any man ever has!

Have you ever been dissed by someone you've adored from afar?

Netflix Threatens To Purge Shows In UK To Avoid Falling Foul Of “Onerous” New Streamer Regulations

EXCLUSIVE: Netflix has threatened to preemptively remove films and TV shows from its UK library to avoid falling foul of new streamer regulations being introduced by the British government.

Ministers in the UK want media regulator Ofcom to police streaming giants in a similar way to traditional broadcasters, meaning the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video could be fined up to £250,000 ($310,000) for carrying harmful content.

In a submission to UK Parliament’s Culture, Media and Sport Committee, Netflix took a swipe at plans to introduce “due impartiality” rules for streamers under the Media Bill, calling draft legislation “nebulous” and potentially “onerous” for services to enforce.

The Media Bill states that major streamers must consider impartiality in the context of contemporary events, pointing specifically to “current public policy” and matters of “political or industrial controversy.”

Netflix said that staying on the right side of this rule would require it to keep its giant catalog of content under continual review, ensuring that it is “purging titles on a regular basis” regardless of when a show or film premiered.

“The range and variety of Netflix’s content, generally considered a strength of our offering in terms of maximising choice for British viewers, could equally become a potential source of risk from a compliance perspective if it fell within Ofcom’s remit,” Netflix said.

“Without considerably greater clarity around the scope and application of these provisions, it would inevitably be easier to remove content pre-emptively from our UK catalogue than risk an onerous compliance burden and potential liability.”

In its five-page document sent to the Culture, Media and Sport Committee, Netflix echoed language used last month by Benjamin King, the streamer’s head of policy in the UK. King said the impartiality rules could have a “chilling” effect on its appetite to make documentaries available to British audiences.

Netflix added that the legislative proposals also open up the risk of “complaint tourism,” meaning people outside of the UK could complain to Ofcom.

More broadly, Netflix said regulation of streaming services should be different from traditional broadcasters. Viewers make active decisions to watch Netflix content, the streamer said, whereas people may accidentally stumble across potentially harmful shows on linear TV.

Disney Echoes Netflix Concerns

Disney made the same argument in its four-page missive to the Culture, Media, and Sport Committee. The U.S. media giant said the audience protection measures it puts in place on Disney+, such as age ratings, means it is not proportionate to introduce blanket streaming regulation.

Disney said: “Given the differences between linear broadcasting and VoD , the robust audience protection measures put in place by most VoD services, the varying consumer propositions and brand promises made by different VoD services, it seems inappropriate to apply uniform rules on all VoD services, whether that is strict content rules or mandated ratings.”

Netflix is the most popular streaming service in the UK with an estimated 17M subscribers, according to Ofcom. Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ are the second and third most in-demand streamers.

In other evidence to the Culture, Media, and Sport Committee, Warner Bros. Discovery and Fremantle raised concerns about plans to allow Channel 4 to make its own shows.

Rock Hard, In "Seconds"

Rock Rocks in this underrated thriller. Arguably his best performance, and the last great outing for John Frankenheimer before he turned hack. Film so loathed by the critic at Canne, John refused to attend, even though he was 20 miles away filming Grand Prix....Needs a revival today, and a blu-ray treatment. Re-Rock-Able

Oscar Best Actress Battle Royale

This year’s Best Actress appeared to be sewn up with Cate Blanchett’s riveting turn as a classical music conductor in Todd Fields’ Tar. That was until Michelle Williams as Mitzi Fabelman premiered in Steven Speilberg’s latest at the Toronto International Film Festival. The Fabelmans won the Audience Award and Michelle has decided to go Lead, not Supporting where she had been considered a lock.

Will Cate win #3 and deprive Michelle of her first win after what will certainly be her fifth nomination?

This race is likely to keep DL’s Oscar queens in a tizzy through March.

Botched NYC butt lift left Texas man infected and depressed, suit claims

What a pain in the rear!

A Houston man claims an Upper East Side plastic surgeon botched his butt implant, sending him to the intensive care unit, according to a lawsuit.

Lewis Scott Brogan, 54, says his pre-procedure lab results showed he was in moderate kidney failure, but Park Avenue doc Douglas Steinbrech plowed ahead with the 11-hour procedure at Gotham Plastic Surgery on the Upper East Side while failing to insert a catheter, Brogan alleged in Manhattan Supreme Court papers.

Without the catheter, the physician couldn’t monitor Brogan’s “fluid intake and output,” and left the Texas entertainment executive with “significant” cardiac and pulmonary problems, until he was rushed to the ICU at Weill Cornell Medical Center from the December 2021 procedure.

Brogan claimed he was discharged from a seven-day hospital stay at Weill Cornell in “ongoing excruciating pain” from his implant and had a high white blood cell count, which indicated infection, according to the legal filing against Steinbrech, Gotham Plastic Surgery, Weill Cornell and others.

There were a few issues we believe that were departures from the standard of care,” said Brogan’s attorney, Gerald Grunsfeld. “It’s like one mistake compounding on each other.”

Brogan had sought out the surgery as a way to lift his spirits after an horrendous attack in his own home months earlier which left him “disfigured,” Grunsfeld said.

The implant had to be removed and Brogan said in the legal filing he was left with “severe depression and financial ruin.”
