Reactions To John Glenn’s Death: Astronaut Was A ‘True American Hero’

Reactions To John Glenns Death: Astronaut Was A True American Hero

The announcement of astronaut John Glenn’s death at the age of 95 sparked a flood of tributes on Thursday, including those from President Barack Obama, President-elect Donald Trump, and U.S. space agency NASA.

John Herschel Glenn Jr. was born on July 18, 1921 in Cambridge, Ohio, and spent his formative years in nearby New Concord. Unlike his fellow “Mercury Seven” astronauts, Glenn did not complete a science-based degree in college, and was also very close to the maximum age of 40 for astronaut candidacy. But he was still part of NASA’s first class of astronauts, and on February 20, 1962, he became the third American in space, and the first American to orbit the Earth.

The former World War II and Korean War veteran’s history-making flight was not without its share of danger. According to The Atlantic, Glenn orbited Earth three times in four hours and 56 minutes, but experienced a close call when he saw “a real fireball outside” as the Friendship 7 capsule reentered Earth’s atmosphere. Glenn was unharmed and safe when the capsule crash-landed into the Caribbean Sea.

As The Inquisitr noted in a report Thursday night, John Glenn entered the world of politics after retiring as an astronaut, serving for more than 25 years as an Ohio senator. He did, however, join six much younger astronauts in 1998, effectively becoming the oldest person in space at 77-years-old. The New York Times wrote that year that Glenn was to take part in aging-related experiments, though he had been removed from one of the experiments due to medical reasons.

With almost 55 years having passed since his historic flight, John Glenn’s death on Thursday had him recognized as a “true American hero,” as the movers and shakers in the world of politics, business, education, and space travel took time out to honor him. According to CBS News, these included NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, who posted a statement recognizing Glenn’s achievements.

“Glenn’s extraordinary courage, intellect, patriotism, and humanity were the hallmarks of a life of greatness. His missions have helped make possible everything our space program has since achieved and the human missions to an asteroid and Mars that we are striving toward now…. The entire NASA Family will be forever grateful for his outstanding service, commitment, and friendship.”

Both President Obama and President-elect Donald Trump also looked back on Glenn’s career with NASA, with Obama focusing in particular on his flight aboard Friendship 7 in 1962. John Glenn was, prior to his death, the last surviving member of the Mercury Seven class, following Scott Carpenter’s passing in October 2013.

“The last of America’s first astronauts has left us, but propelled by their example we know that our future here on Earth compels us to keep reaching for the heavens,” said Obama. “On behalf of a grateful nation, Godspeed, John Glenn.”

Trump was more succinct in his tribute, taking to Twitter and referring to John Glenn as a “great pioneer of air and space,” and someone who “inspired generations of future explorers.”

Tesla and SpaceX Chief Executive Elon Musk was among the more prominent business personalities who honored Glenn, saying he lived a “life well lived.”

Ed Harris, the actor who played John Glenn in the 1983 film The Right Stuff, issued his own statement, offering condolences to Glenn’s family, including Annie, his wife of 73 years.

“I never had the chance to meet him, have no idea what he thought of the film, but I mourn the passing of this decent and honorable man and send much love and all good thoughts to Annie and his family.”

As of this writing, there has been no confirmation on the cause of John Glenn’s death, but CNBC noted that the astronaut had suffered a stroke in 2014, and had recently been taken to the James Cancer Hospital at Ohio State University, where he had died on Thursday.

Ariel Winter Gets Cheeky By Pool For New ‘Elle’ Magazine Interview

9 December, by Carrie Parker[ —]

Ariel Winter in Elle Magazine photos

Actress Ariel Winter shared more cheeky photos this week in honor of her latest Elle magazine article. The 18-year-old posed next to a swimming pool in the shots tagged for Elle magazine. In one, the brunette looks back over her shoulder as she grins for the camera. Winter wears a pair of denim cut-offs and striped shirt in the flirty photo. A pair of blue heels lay behind her suggesting she kicked her shoes off and stuck her feet in the water spontaneously.

The second image has Ariel sitting on a diving board over the swimming pool as she perkily poses while wearing knee-high boots and fluffy pink wrap. In both captions, Winter has tagged Elle magazine and states she appreciates them for the recent article titled “The New Class.”

“@elleusa I love you and appreciate you so much for this, thank you.”


A photo posted by ARIEL WINTER (@arielwinter) on

The article discusses young, rising female stars and their power on social media. Elle chose four young ladies to honor in the article stating “they use their significant social media influence to control their own narratives.” In addition to Winter, the magazine highlights Keke Palmer, Skai Jackson, and Jordyn Woods.

The magazine dives into discussing each female, but let’s focus on what it said about Miss Winter. According to Elle, Ariel is unashamedly being herself and gets plenty of attention for just that — being Ariel Winter.

“Winter is merely being herself—which to some appears to be the most offensive thing of all.”

It’s no secret almost everything the young actress does comes under scrutiny. From what she wears and who she dates, Ariel is constantly in the headlines. However, what makes her special is the fact she doesn’t care what the public has to say about how she chooses to live, according to the magazine article.

“I don’t care what people say about me; I don’t care how people feel about the choices I make.”

And that’s been clear since Winter turned 18 and started breaking out of her Modern Family role.

Winter has been making news for her revealing outfits, for her body-positive posts, and for generally not giving a care when it comes to haters. She’s been making her own waves as she embraces her body and encourages all women to do the same, and for her risqué Instagram posts that fans go crazy over. Since undergoing a breast reduction in 2015, Winter has been outspoken when it comes to body acceptance.

With almost three million followers on Instagram, it’s no wonder Elle chose this budding actress and activist to be a part of its “New Class” article. In addition to the recognition in the magazine, Winter has teamed up with Dove for its Speak Beautiful campaign that targets bullying and promotes body acceptance. In an interview with People, Ariel discussed her work for the campaign and why she feels it’s important.

“I think it’s really incredible that Dove is working so hard to change that for young women everywhere — and young men — to be able to grow up feeling good about themselves and spreading positivity everywhere.”

Indeed, it seems young Ariel is in a prime position to promote body acceptance as fans continue to look to her photos and her message. Whether she’s posing in a cheeky bikini or a pair of Daisy Dukes, there’s always a message behind Winter’s photos. She told Elle just what that message is as she continues to live her life and post images the way she pleases despite what the public may say.

“At the end of the day, you’re not going to please anybody, and the only person you should be concerned with pleasing is yourself.”

‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 Release Date TBA, ‘The Defenders’ Crossover And Things To Expect

9 December, by Frank Yemi[ —]

luke cage mike colter simone missick

Marvel’s Luke Cage is officially coming back for Season 2 and you will get to see a lot more of Luke before the next season is released. It’s the third Netflix Marvel series to get the greenlight, following Daredevil and Jessica Jones, the latter in which the bulletproof Harlem native was introduced.

While Luke Cage Season 2 is yet to get an official release date, next up in Netflix’s Marvel Universe is Iron Fist and the first season of The Defenders, which will feature Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Iron Fish, and Luke Cage. It is also likely that the second season of Jessica Jones and Daredevil Season 3 will air before Season 2 of Luke Cage. Therefore, we may not get the second season until 2018.

Luke Cage’s symbolism as a bulletproof black man in a hoody and intricate storytelling helped make the first season a hit with fans and critics alike. It’s likely that The Defenders, which is coming out in 2017 will continue where the first season left off.

In the finale of Luke Cage, his new love interest Claire Temple tells him that she knows “a great lawyer,” which is the perfect setup for Luke meeting up with Daredevil. This suggests that we see how Luke gets out of prison in The Defenders, rather than the second season of Luke Cage.

In the comics, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage end up having a child. Therefore, we can look forward to their complicated relationship now that Luke is hooking up with Claire Temple and he will have to work with Jessica in The Defenders.

As for Luke Cage Season 2, the finale teased an upgraded Diamondback who shares a genetic relationship to Luke. Dr. Noah Burstein is going to attempt to recreate the abilities he gave Luke in Diamondback. We will have to wait for Season 2 to find out what Burstein makes of Willis Stryker or if he is the main antagonist.

Simone Missick who plays Misty Stone will also appear in The Defenders alongside Luke Cage. Missick has teased her character getting the bionic arm in an interview with IGN:

“I think it was a great kind of teaser for the fans you know because everyone wants Misty to have that arm,” Missick told IGN. “I’ve never seen anyone want me to lose an appendage more. So, I think that they wanted to play with that and give people the ‘Will it happen or will it not?'”

According to Inverse, the “Heroes for Hire” company with Luke Cage and Iron Fist may happen. Luke initially starts the organization on his own but ends up having a successful partnership with Iron Fist. Therefore, we may get some good chemistry between the Marvel heroes in The Defenders.

In the first episode of Luke Cage, after he gets lucky with Misty Knight she notices that he talks in his sleep and stated that he mentioned Shades and Comanche. The latter was briefly introduced in a scene in prison where Shades Alvarez and Comanche beat up Luke in prison. Comanche and Shades become “Hoodlums for Hire,” and have an epic feud in the comics. They are expected to get abilities from Ward Meachum, who will be introduced in Iron Fist. However, don’t get too excited as it is not clear how much Netflix is going to implement from the comics but they have many interesting angles they can take with the crossover Marvel heroes.

Luke Cage is the biggest hit in Netflix Marvel universe so far. Therefore, many fans are looking forward to an epic follow-up.

Who are your favorite characters on Luke Cage?

Nicki Minaj Posts Instagram Photos Of Steamy Swimsuit Getaway On Her Birthday

Nicki Minaj steamy swinsuit gateway on her birthday

Nicki Minaj recently celebrated her birthday and she just could not help but give her fans something to smile about by posting Instagram photos of her steamy swimsuit getaway on her birthday.

Minaj traveled to the Turks and Caicos Islands with her boyfriend Meek Mill to celebrate her birthday. Mill really outdid himself this time because he wanted his girl to have the best birthday experience. Minaj whose past few years in the music industry have been quite successful celebrated her 34th birthday in style and she posted the evidence on her Instagram, showing off her amazing curves.

The vacation images reveal Nicki Minaj wearing a gold studded Norma Kamali “Marissa” red swimsuit that hugs her body tightly, allowing her to flaunt her curvaceous body. The swimsuit had a low cut underarm, revealing a lot of side boob. The back side of the swimsuit also hugged her and slightly covered her derriere, thus revealing her ample backside. It is no doubt that the 34-year-old musician wanted to treat her fans to a lot of eye candy.

The brunette artist was also clad in some black leather high-heeled ankle boots to match the outfit and complement her sexy legs, though the photos were taken on a beach. It does not make sense that she was wearing heels at the beach. She should have been barefoot but then again she was probably wearing them for the vacation photo shoot. Whatever the case, her fans are just glad that she was kind enough to share those moments with them on Instagram.

Meek Mill was clearly excited for the birthday and he also took to the social media platform where he posted a photo in which the two were photographed together. Minaj smiled gracefully in the photo, while Mills was behind her, pointing at the camera. Nicki had a blonde weave in the recent post uploaded on Instagram by her boyfriend.

“Happy Birthday to my queen, Nicki Minaj. Stay bad and blessed up!” Meek Mills captioned on the Instagram post.

The female rapper received a lot of positive feedback on social media with most of them wishing her a happy birthday. Her rapper boyfriend also posted the photos he took of her in the red swimsuit on social media. One of the photos revealed the female artist posing for the photo while looking up on a very clear and sunny day. The sea on the background also appears very calm and blue. Meek Mill was obviously a very happy man taking photos of his curvaceous lady. Luckily the photos were shared on social media allowing the rest of humanity to salivate ogle at her stunning physique.

“Lord, I thank you for another year of life. #TurksAndCaicos Birthday vibes. Thanks for the u guys. Right back atcha,” Nicki captioned in one of her posts.

The artist was clearly grateful that she has gotten this far and the shout out to her friends was her way of showing appreciation for the love and respect that she gets from her fans. Other than celebrating her birthday, Minaj and Mills also took the opportunity to take some time off from their busy schedules.

The getaway also allowed them to take some time off from the prying eyes of the paparazzi so that they could enjoy a few days without being constantly bombarded by guys holding up cameras due to their celebrity status. It was also a good idea for the couple to take some time off so that they could focus on their relationship. Hopefully, the time off during Nicki Minaj’s birthday will allow them to relax and build up for yet another great year ahead.

WWE Is Done With John Cena, Three Superstars Who Will Replace Him

9 December, by Nikki Valenzuela[ —]

WWE is finally done with superstar John Cena

John Cena has been the face of wrestling for over a decade now and has won the company a legion of a new generation of fans. However, John Cena has been largely absent from the company stemming from outside ventures and various injuries.

It seemed like WWE is letting John Cena’s absence slide due to his massive contribution to the company. But now that reports have surfaced that Cena is planning to further extend his hiatus, the company is reportedly mad at the wrestling icon and is now looking for stars to replace him.

John Cena has a lot of opportunities outside of pro wrestling going for him. Cena definitely has that star appeal that could give him that could make him a potential crossover superstar. The future pro wrestling hall of famer is looking more like he wants to follow the footsteps of fellow WWE alumni Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who is currently one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood.

This has led him to forego some wrestling commitments and actively pursuing hosting gigs and other Hollywood endeavors. According to Flickering Myth, there is a good chance that John Cena will be out for the rest of next year putting him out of the WWE for some years now. And reports are saying that the WWE has had enough of John Cena and is looking to replace him as the face of wrestling. This will set off a big motion where the company will start moving on from Cena and will actively push another superstar in its programming. According to a report from Forbes, here are some of the superstars who the WWE could be cooking up to give the torch going forward and replace John Cena.

I did it for you my fans ???????? #wwe #backlash #ajstyles

AJ Styles

WWE’s latest acquisition has started calling himself “The Face That Runs the Place,” which could signal the creative teams intent on this guy replacing John Cena. Styles is now a heel and is still a favorite among WWE fans. What is quite striking is that John Cena’s popularity started with him as a heel before turning face.

Aj Styles also has that uncanny ability to get the fans riled up. This is also reminiscent of John Cena who is a pretty controversial love him or hate him figure. Whatever fans think of him, John Cena presents big figures and AJ Styles seems like the perfect candidate to replace him.

The Miz

The Miz had an amazing early WWE run but for some reason was cooled off by the company immediately. He languished in second tier storylines for some time after that. But The Miz is having a fantastic year and is set to have bigger storylines for him in 2017 especially now that Cena is gone. He definitely has the mic skills to trump Cena and the rest of the WWE roster.

Where the Miz can replace Cena is with the public relation aspect of the company. John Cena is known as one of the most hard working troopers of the WWE with all his outside work. The Miz is a pretty likable guy and could is reportedly just as hardworking as John Cena. Hopefully, the company can reward him further for this the same way they did for Cena.

Demon King won the very first WWE Universal Championship but sadly his time as a champion only lasted few hours as he had to give up the title and leave WWE for a period of time to rehab from his injury. Now there must be a new champion, is this the time for leader of the Roman Empire to takeover and become the face of Monday night RAW? Can he do it? or is it Seth Rollins who will gain the title? Comment below and let us know if you are with Reigns or Rollins! #love #romanreigns #wwe #me #smile #photooftheday #selfie #theshield #happy #picoftheday #instadaily #houndsofjustice #swag #amazing #YesMovement #fashion #RomanEmpire #sethrollins #deanambrose #instalike #bestoftheday #smile #like4like #believeinreigns #believeinromanreigns

Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns is that guy that the WWE loves to shove down fan’s throats. He has a great physique but inadequate mic skills and in-ring excitement. Those descriptions alone should remind fans of John Cena, who the company continuously to push despite a good chunk of fans getting really sick of him. Like it or not, Roman Reigns will still be the guy who the company is going to push to replace Cena.

John Cena looks like he is on the way out and this three stars certainly could replace all his contributions to the WWE. Hopefully, fans will still get to see John Cena do some part time work for the company.

‘The Vampire Diaries’ Finale: Everyone’s ‘Slightly In Denial’ According To Candice King

9 December, by Eunice Alcala[ —]

The Vampire Diaries season finale

It’s the final season of The Vampire Diaries and it’s understandable that everyone on the set will have a tough time saying goodbye to the show which they’ve worked on since 2009. Candice King described to TV Guide what it’s like to shoot the scenes knowing that this season’s their last.

It’s been a bit of a crazy year. I think we’ll start getting much more sentimental after the holidays. We always have pretty tough shooting schedules so we’re still just in the thick of the workload of the episodes. But I think it will be so wonderful after the holidays. All the episodes will be written and ready and all the actors will be rested and I think it will feel real. I think everyone’s slightly in denial still, myself included.”

Candice is grateful that the writers of The Vampire Diaries gave depth to her character. From a seemingly superficial woman in the first season, Caroline evolved into a strong character who’s now one of the show’s key players.

That’s what I’m most thankful about with this character. Eight years later on a supernatural, serialized TV show doing 22 episodes a season, and I just appreciate that this character has had so much growth and has gotten to have relationships and different things go on with her parents and her friends and also going on this big journey of who she is as a vampire and what that means.”

Stefan and Caroline’s fate is now bleak because of Cade’s presence in Season 8. Stefan’s deal with him derailed Steroline’s wedding plans and in an interview with MTV News, Candice said that while Caroline won’t give up on her fiancé, she is likewise clueless. “She has no idea how to help Stefan. Cade is not just another bad guy. How do you help when it’s the devil?” she explained.

It’s been quite a journey for “Vampire Barbie” especially after Nina Dobrev left the series. With Nina’s departure, the other characters needed to step up their games too. With the show’s looming finale, it is greatly possible that Nina will come back for one last episode. As reported by the Digital Spy, Julie has a “backup ending” that does not include Elena but she hopes to not use it.

“Her character was the centerpiece, the heart and soul of the series, for so long that it would feel incomplete. That being said, I could do it that way, I just would prefer not to. I do have an ending without Elena – but I hope I don’t have to use it.”

The cast members are already sharing thoughts on their ideal ending for The Vampire Diaries. Paul Wesley thinks that Stefan and Caroline will still end up tying the knot although for him, it’s nice to surprise viewers and do the unexpected.

As for Ian Somerhalder, nothing will make him happier than to restore humanity in Mystic Falls. He believes the town has suffered enough because of the supernatural characters that keep on wreaking havoc. The self-confessed “pro-human” thinks it’s only fair for Elena to wake up and be left alone by Stefan and Damon.

For him, the Salvatore brothers can simply get rid of their rings and be gone. While his preferred conclusion is fairly reasonable, it might not sit well with fans who are still yearning for a happy ending. The Vampire Diaries’ showrunners promise to revisit “a lot of dearly departed loved ones” before the show closes its curtain.

The Vampire Diaries airs every Friday on the CW. The series is set to conclude in March next year.

‘Sex And The City’ Reunion? Kristin Davis Feels Story Is Far From Finished

9 December, by Eunice Alcala[ —]

Sex and the City reunion soon?

Sex and the City loyalists might have a reason to rejoice as Kristin Davis, who plays the dainty and affectionate Charlotte, revealed that for her, the squad’s story isn’t over yet. In an interview with People, the 51-year-old said that at first, they never thought that Sex and the City would become a hit.

“The whole entire ride of Sex and the City has been one surprise after another surprise. We never thought we would really be a hit. We didn’t think we’d win an Emmy, we didn’t think we’d get to make one film, much less another film.”

Twelve years after the television series ended, Kristin is still not ready to finish the tale of the four girls. She is ready to reprise her role if the producers give the green light to a Sex and the City reunion. “I do feel inside like we’re not finished. I do feel like there’s another story. I would be up for anything Sarah Jessica Parker and Michael Patrick King think is the right thing,” she said.

She is not the only one who gave fans a little ray of hope. Last month, when Wendy Williams took to Twitter to beg for another Sex and the City movie, Kim Cattrall responded. Her tweet read, “Can’t WAIT 2 get back 2 the serious business of making u all laugh! Fingers x’d.”

Kim’s response delighted fans who thought that HBO’s planning a spinoff. However, Gossip Cop then debunked the report that Kim would star in a new Sex and the City project. It seems that like Kristin, Kim truly misses her character.

On Instagram, she recently shared her first Boomerang where she was seen flaunting a leopard print top paired with dangling earrings. Her caption read, “Channeling Ms. Samantha Jones once again.” Her makeup artist Nick Barose also uploaded a selfie revealing that they’re working on a “secret project.”

My 1st Boomerang, Honey! Channeling Ms Samantha Jones once again …..

A video posted by Kim Cattrall (@kimcattrall) on

Sarah Jessica also appears to fancy the idea of a Sex and the City reunion although not a lot of fans know that she nearly bailed on playing Carrie. In a previous appearance on Jimmy Kimmel’s show to promote her new HBO show Divorce, Sarah Jessica admitted to People that she almost did not commit to HBO’s offer after the pilot episode.

“I thought it was an interesting role and I loved the script then I completely forgot about it cause I went on to do a play or whatever. and I ran into someone on the street and they said ‘hey I saw your show’ and I said ‘what show?’ and they said ‘you did a show called Sex and the City‘ and I was like ‘oh right.'”

When Sex and the City’s first episode turned out to be a hit, HBO ordered a full season. It was her “wiser” friends who convinced her that it would be foolish to pass on the opportunity of giving life to such an iconic role.

Should there be a Sex and the City reunion, the only one who might need persuading is Cynthia Nixon. Cynthia, who played the role of Miranda, told The Edit via Daily Mail that Sex and the City made her feel pressured to stay “thin and look great all the time.”

She compared the show with Lena Dunham’s Girls in which women, she believed, are portrayed realistically.

“I think Girls is really important. When sex was bad on Sex and the City, it was funny. And the worse it was, the funnier it was. But when sex is bad on Girls, it can be really hard to watch, and it’s sometimes abusive, and it’s important to show that. Plus, in SATC we had to be thin and look great all the time; in Girls, they have permission to be more real and less airbrushed.”

What do you think of a Sex and the City reunion? Do you agree with Cynthia’s views that the two shows depicted women differently?

WWE News: Creative Plans For John Cena’s WWE Return And ‘Wrestlemania 33’ Match Revealed

9 December, by Will McCormick[ —]


John Cena hasn’t been featured on WWE television since WWE No Mercy back in October, but his return to WWE has been a hot topic of conversation of the WWE Universe because there have been some conflicting reports about his relationship with WWE recently. If you summed it up, there is some major concern about Cena’s WWE future because his commitments outside of the company are now taking even more time away.

It’s been confirmed and report that John Cena will return to WWE during a live event on December 26th in Madison Square Garden. He’ll be featured in a triple threat match against Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles. It will be his first match in almost three months, but it was recently revealed his hiatus from WWE television will be extended for a bit longer and his status for the WWE Royal Rumble is currently up in the air.

The expectation is that John Cena will win the WWE Royal Rumble match, which will lead to a WWE World Championship match at Wrestlemania 33 against AJ Styles or The Undertaker. It’s has been reported that Styles vs. Undertaker will take place at the event as well, and the winner will face Cena at Wrestlemania. All of the above was speculation until a recent report finally revealed the creative plans for Cena’s WWE return.

According to a new report, WWE officials have set their creative plans for WWE television in stone and their two main feuds for SmackDown heading into next year will be Ambrose vs. The Miz for the Intercontinental title and John Cena feuding with AJ Styles to become the sixteen time WWE World Champion and tie Ric Flair’s record. Simply put, Cena versus Styles will immediately resume as soon as Cena returns to WWE TV.

That’s not a surprise, but all the drama surrounding John Cena right now brings a lot of questions to WWE’s plans if he isn’t confirmed for the WWE Royal Rumble or WWE television after Wrestlemania 33. It was reported recently that Cena’s schedule in 2017 will only allow him to commit half the year to WWE. If that is the case, how will his next title reign be if he’s going to have such a limited schedule next year with WWE?

In reality, that also means the long anticipated and rumored match between John Cena and The Undertaker isn’t happening at Wrestlemania next year in Orlando. With Cena’s full schedule and Undertaker’s health issues, it may be for the best the match doesn’t happen on the grandest stage of them all, but a lot of people are still going to be disappointed, especially now that Undertaker’s match in Orlando is now a total mystery.

[Image by WWE]

The reports about there being tension between John Cena and WWE officials are claiming that the recent returns of Goldberg and Undertaker to WWE television are a major factor in their conflict. Apparently, both men are making great money on limited schedules with the company. While Cena is making more than they are with WWE, his limited schedule over the past year and for 2017 should mean a similar contract for him.

If WWE officials are welcoming back Cena with his third WWE Royal Rumble match victory and then his sixteenth WWE World title reign, it’s going to be a much better situation for WWE’s product if his schedule will allow him to defend the championship properly in 2017 and be taken care of behind the scenes.

Based on the rumors and news, there is a lot that WWE officials need to work out with John Cena before he is given the honor of tying Ric Flair’s record on the grandest stage of them all. Having said that, AJ Styles vs. John Cena at Wrestlemania was a dream match for many years, so we’ll be lucky to see it come to life. It’ll be a great match, but it’s not going to answer some of the big questions Cena will answer over the next year.

Kate Hudson Side Boob Show As She Attends Recode Interview

9 December, by Swati Goyal[ —]

Kate Hudson side boob show

Kate Hudson surprised tech junkies at Recode after she showed up braless for an interview with the tech site.

Hudson was scheduled for a business meeting with Recode as part of her interesting career as a commerce executive. That’s right, the 37-year-old surprisingly became a tech executive, which is a very rare career shift from her acting career. However, it appears that her celebrity styling also spilled over into her business career, which might not necessarily be a bad thing. The actress-turned commerce executive showed up at the meeting with the tech site Recode while clad in a see-through top and she also happened to be topless, thus showing a bit of side boob.

Kate wore a small tank top that revealed a bit of side boob due to the low-cut under arms. As if that was not enough, the tank top was see-through and Hudson did not have a bra underneath. Regardless of the braless option and the side boobs, her style was incredible. She matched the top with a pair of Prabal Gurung flare trousers accessorized with pearls running on the side. The pair of trousers is priced at almost £797.99.

Kate proved that she had a lot of takeaways from her acting career especially in terms of her fashion sense and she was not afraid to carry it over into her executive career. Hudson’s business meeting with Recode involved discussions about the future of TechStyle Fashion Group, which is the parent company to her athletics brand for women. The latter is known as Fabletics. During the meeting, they talked about the parent company going public.

“What’s the goal? The goal is to reach a certain IPO and then…” Hudson responded when asked about the company’s ultimate goal by Kara Swisher, the founder of Recode.

Adam Goldenberg, the CEO of TechStyle contributed to Hudson’s statement, adding that the goal was to grow bigger. He also added that they were still in the early stages of building the company. However, the decision about the company’s growth will not solely depend on Goldenberg and Hudson.

“I wish we still owned enough of the company that that was only our decision,” Goldman stated.

The CEO further pointed out that decisions have to be considered across the board especially to consider what investors want. This is with regards to the $300 million in funding that the company received from investors. This means that the decision-making process has to involve the investors since they have some controlling interest in the firm.

The only way that Hudson and Goldenberg would get a chance to make the influential decisions on behalf of the company is if they were the majority shareholders. Unfortunately, that is not the case and they thus have to consider the sentiments of the other investors. A report from Recode revealed that TechStyle Fashion Group expects sales figures for the current year to stand at $650 million. Hudson’s Fabletics brand will have contributed a significant amount to the annual figures with about $250 million in sales.

The Fabletics brand gets most of its revenue from $50 monthly membership fees. The membership structure has previously been the subject of controversy following complaints from users claiming that they did not know what they were subscribing to. Others had complained that canceling their memberships was too difficult. Goldman, however, reported that less than 0.5 percent of the company’s total user base had been experiencing problems.

Kate appears to be having a great time in the corporate world and her business is doing well. Her choice of attire for the Recode meeting clearly proves that Hudson does not take her work too seriously and she is not afraid to shine in her own way, though the side boob show might have been a bit overboard.

Kirk Douglas At 100: ‘I’m A Sonofab****, Plain And Simple!’

9 December, by Edward VKanty[ —]

Kirk Douglas, Spartacus, Stanley Kubrick

As Kirk Douglas turns 100 years old, the veteran actor and former leading man opens up about his Hollywood legacy with as many sordid tales about his womanizing past as he has about his silver screen triumphs. There has always been an interest in Douglas’ off-screen exploits, even in the heyday of his career, when he was the top Hollywood grosser and international sex symbol. Hinting that he was still a gentleman in some fashion, Kirk would never share the details of his sexual escapades. Now, as Mr. Douglas reaches his 100th birthday, he opens up about his leading ladies and his timeless cinematic hits.

In 1971, Dick Cavett cornered Kirk Douglas with questions about his leading ladies, and, as New York Post shares, the talk show host was very interested in getting Douglas to fess up about rumors that he had been running around with the likes of Kim Novak and Faye Dunaway. Though Kirk was there to discuss A Gunfight, which had just hit theaters at the time of the interview, Cavett pressed the actor and even went so far as to quote Alfred Hitchcock in an effort to put the actor at ease.

“(Alfred) Hitchcock said in an interview once that it’s very hard for the romance on screen not to carry over into the private lives of the actors,” Cavett said. “Have you found this true?”

Mr. Douglas responded with anger, though there might have been as much humor as genuine offense in his reply.

“An actor is supposed to immerse himself in the role!”

That was as far as Cavett was going to get with Kirk, but, years later, 71-year-old Douglas would write a memoir and confess much about his past, including his marriage infidelities. Kirk admits that he cheated on his first wife and mother of Michael Douglas, Diana Dill, as well as revealing that he had been unfaithful to his current wife, Anne Bydens.

“I’m a sonofab****, plain and simple,” Douglas shamelessly announces in the memoir, The Ragman’s Son.

Among the Hollywood starlets to have succumbed to Kirk’s charm, the Spartacus actor reveals that he had been intimate with Joan Crawford, Linda Darnell, Marlene Dietrich, Rita Hayworth, Evelyn Keyes, Marilyn Maxwell, Patricia Neal, Ann Sothern, and Gene Tierney.

“As I look back, I realize that somehow I was attracted to women who were neurotic,” says Mr. Douglas.

Variety reports Kirk Douglas began his acting career in 1946’s The Strange Love of Martha Ivers and continued acting up through 2008, making Empire State Building Murders, a TV movie, his last project. In between, Douglas made Hollywood history as an actor and as a producer, launching his own production company in 1955, Bryna Productions, which he used to negate the Hollywood blacklist.

Douglas brought in filmmaker Stanley Kubrick for the second film to be produced by his fledgling company, Paths of Glory, and the two headstrong men were soon butting heads. The conflict between Douglas and Kubrick began when Stanley took it upon himself to make major script changes without consulting Douglas. One would think that Douglas would vow to never again work with Kubrick after that first experience, but the opposite was true.

Kirk asked Stanley to direct Spartacus three years later.

“Difficult? He invented the word. But he was talented,” says Douglas. “So, we had lots of fights, but I always appreciated his talent. I always said he was a b—–d, but he was a talented, talented guy.”

The new film was not without further conflicts between Kubrick and Kirk, but the Spartacus producer loved Stanley’s directorial eye too much to part ways. Still, there were some things upon which Douglas held firm. One of those items was what has since turned out to be the most famous scene in the film and one which Kubrick was not particularly overjoyed with having to shoot.

Kirk insisted, however, and he was the boss.

That scene was the one in which Douglas shouts, “I am Spartacus!”

“He didn’t like that scene, but I insisted,” says Kirk. “We had a little argument.”

That was just one of a million memories for Mr. Douglas. It was called the Golden Age of Hollywood and there will never be another one like it, not for Kirk. He still keeps an eye on the entertainment industry, though he has been retired for many years, but Kirk no longer feels like he belongs. Many of the people Douglas once knew are either dead or have retired.

“I am now a hundred years old. I read about Hollywood, and I don’t know the people,” says Kirk Douglas. “Where is Burt? Where is Laurence Olivier? They’re all gone. I miss them. I feel lonely.”

Kirk isn’t always somber and nostalgic, but it’s his birthday and that kind of retrospective is permissible, especially on his 100th birthday.
