Ashley Darby just gave birth to her baby boy, Dean, one month ago, but is she thinking about having more children? The Real Housewives of Potomac star sounds a little hesitant about it.
In an interview with Hollywood Life, Darby talked about her feelings of trying to make another baby. She and her husband, Michael, have had trouble conceiving in the past so there could be more difficulties in the future. As much as she would like to give little Dean a sibling, the new mom is approaching with serious caution.
“I would be lying to you if I said I wasn’t [scared], I’m trying to be present and in the moment and to savor all the things, the little smiles and everything like that,” Darby said. “But at the same time, of course I’m thinking about a sibling for him and you know, what that would look like. So it definitely scares me a little bit. Certainly, even with Dean, I was very nuts. I found myself just not completely able to really enjoy being pregnant for the first couple of months because I was just so scared that a rug was going to be ripped out from underneath me. And yeah, it was just really hard to emotionally invest myself the way that I wanted to, out of fear.”
As far as being a mom now, Darby said she’s loving every minute of it.
“I actually, I really love it. And it’s everything that I thought it would be and more,” she said.
The Kardashians remain a huge hit when it comes to the guys who date and one in particular some of us remember is when Khloe dated French Montana after her rocky split from Lamar Odom.
In an interview with Haute Living, Montana mentioned what it was like when he dated the Kardashian sister. Rumor had it that Khloe only dated him to help her get through her divorce, but the rapper said that he and Khloe had a wonderful relationship.
“Me and Khloe are always going to be friends, and the family still remains close,” Montana said. “I feel like we had a real dope relationship―there was no bad blood, nobody did something to somebody that we couldn’t come back from.”
“The love was real,” the rapper added. “When the love was like that, it’s going to be like that. Friendship after a relationship is something that’s real hard to do, and I’m glad we’ve been able to do it.”
From here on out, Montana said he’s going to live his life the way he wants to and that is by being happy. Sounds like a good plan. He is also choosing to be around people he has real love for.
“If you know somebody for 10 years and call them a friend, then you mean it unless you’re a real opportunist who has no f—ing soul; real recognizes real.”
Khloe was in a relationship with Tristan Thompson. They are parents to daughter, True Thompson, 1.
Dove Cameron really is all about showing “what a girl is.”
The singer took to her Instagram page on Wednesday to share a selfie in front of a mirror with her nipples exposed behind her shirt. She captioned the photo with a strong message about loving yourself as a woman.
“In such times as these, women are able to look at themselves with new concepts of value and brilliance. However you inhabit and express being Woman, embrace yourself in that way today!” Cameron wrote.
That’s right! It’s “all about what’s inside,” just like her song!
A number of followers loved the photo and her caption, including one who wrote, “Feeling empowered w/ no bra on rn bc of this.”
Cameron responded in a way that makes us incredibly proud that she went from child star to strong young woman.
“Take ur f–king bra off if you want,” she replied. “Don’t hide your natural body. People are weird. Just because it’s the ‘the norm’ now to be ashamed of nipples or your period doesn’t mean they are actually bad or embarrassing??? Women’s bodies are the literal coolest. Anyone who tells you to hide it slut-shames you or puts you down because of your gender can f–k RIGHT off. And I would say we should sit and explain it to them, but really, who has the time? Enjoy your life and empower others.”
You tell them, Dove! Be the inspiring new star that the world needs today.
The news spilled last week that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were calling it quits after less than a year of marriage. But is there a chance that they might reconcile?
On Thursday, E! News reported that Cyrus is feeling “sad and disappointed” about the split. And it sounds like she may want to work it out with Hemsworth.
“Miley has not been talking to an attorney or thinking about divorce,” a source told the site. “She wanted the marriage to work and is still willing to give it time. But going through this in the public eye has made things a lot messier and a lot more difficult. She doesn’t really know what to do or what will happen next.”
Apparently, things had been awry for a while, but Hemsworth wasn’t ready to come forward about it yet. Given the situation, it sounds like this is a lot for him to take.
“They were just taking a break, but now it is much more of a serious split,” a source said. “They were in a rough spot and their lifestyles were not aligning. But he had hope they would find a way to reconnect and hadn’t given up. This whole thing has taken things to a new level and really upset him. He was blindsided and extremely hurt by the allegations against him in the press. He had no idea any of this was coming.”
In actuality, if they are going their separate ways after only eight months of marriage, it’s probably for the best that they just move on. Obviously, it’s their life, but a short amount of time like this doesn’t exactly call for a better chance next time.
Oh! My! God! Friends is coming to the movies for three nights this fall and we couldn’t be more excited. After the success of I Love Lucy coming to theaters for Lucille Ball’s birthday on August 6, it sounds like a great idea to bring more classic TV shows to the moves. This gives fans more opportunities to laugh to their favorite moments on television while experiencing the joy with other fans sharing moments together.
The question is though- which episodes are going to air for the Friends celebration?
It was announced that 12 episodes would be shown (which is way more than I Love Lucy!). So which ones will they be? It’s too soon to know, but here are the ones that we can only hope will be shown!
The One With the Blackout
The gang is trapped in the dark during a blackout while Ross is about to confess his love to Rachel. In what was supposed to be a romantic setting, a cat jumps onto Ross and he tries to fight it off while the others are joyfully singing and being totally oblivious to the hysterical attack that’s happening behind them. Wouldn’t it be great to see this moment at the movies with all the other fans who can’t stop chuckling?
The One Where Ross Finds Out
“You’re over me? When were you…under me?” This episode had some great dialogue, but it was the moment at the end when Ross kisses Rachel in one of the most passionate moments of the series. It would be great to see this scene with everyone in the theater applauding and cheering all around.
The One With the Prom Video
Another big Ross and Rachel episode that ought to end with more cheers. “See? He’s her lobster!”
The One With the Giant Poking Device
Not even Chandler and Janice’s break-up scene could make this episode less funny! When the gang thinks that Ugly Naked Guy is dead, they create a poking stick to see if he’ll move only to find out he’s fine….”and yet, we’re still poking him…”
The One With the Football
The trophy in the form of a troll, the Dutch girl, Phoebe flashing Chandler and Rachel’s epic catch would be nothing short of perfect. “Cheater Cheater Compulsive Eater!”
The One With Phoebe’s Uterus
Only because of one number that gets said numerous times.
The One With the Embryos
Surprisingly, this episode is not called The One With the Trivia Game. Phoebe’s time at the clinic is pretty bland compared to the epic game the others play in a bet to win the girls’ apartment. “He’s a transpons-transponster!”
The One With All the Thanksgivings
The holiday that made a majority of the friends’ greatest memories is what made the show so special. And it all comes down to the time Monica accidentally cut off Chandler’s toe and then stuffing the turkey on her head causing Chandler to say “I love you.”
The One Where Everybody Finds Out
Everyone has officially found out about Chandler and Monica’s romance (Ross actually doesn’t find out till the very end of the episode). When Phoebe tries to mess with Chandler by pretending she’s interested in him, the game of Who Can Break Who the Fastest becomes one iconic journey the series has ever given us.
The One With the Routine
Ross and Monica’s ridiculously fun dance routine on New Year’s Eve is something that every Friends fan should witness on the big screen. “Trouble With Boys” will always be associated with our favorite brother-sister performance.
The One With Unagi
“Ahh…salmon skin roll.” Ross and his fascination to spread awareness to Phoebe and Rachel after they take a self-defense class is so bizarre. And it gets more hilarious as the three of them play cat-and-mouse.
The Last One
It may be one of the most heartbreaking episodes of the series, but it’s what concludes the show we will know and love forever. Throughout the laughter, we can smile through our tears as we get a glimpse of the apartment one last time.
It just wasn’t meant to be for Bella Hadid and The Weeknd…or so it seems. The two have called it quits for the second time, but is there a chance they might rekindle their romance in their future? Hadid’s friends seem to think so.
On Sunday, Hollywood Lifereported that the model and singer may try to work things out in the long run. Apparently, it was just their work and scheduling that drove them apart. But is that enough to keep them at a distance? It sounds like Hadid’s loved ones still see a spark in there somewhere.
“Bella’s family and friends are not convinced they’ve seen the end of her relationship with Abel,” a source told the site. “At this point only time will tell to see where their relationship is going because they truly believe she still loves him.”
For anyone who’s rooting for these two, you never know. Life is full of wonder and these two may fall back in love before we know it.
“Those closest to Bella know that deep down there are still true feelings there and those feelings don’t just go away overnight,” the source said. “They have broken up before and it was simply due to scheduling conflicts because she’s busy, focused on her career and she’s always on the go. So only time will tell, but there’s definitely a possibility things will work themselves out at some point.”
It might be a dream come true for fans to see these two stars work it out. But they’ve got some busy lives and promising careers ahead of them so if their relationship doesn’t work out for those reasons, then maybe so be it.
Also, Bella is 22. The Weeknd is 29. They have the rest of their lives ahead of them so all they should do is focus on themselves and move forward.
the good ol’ days of being 10-years-old and going to a friend’s
sleepover and deciding to give all your buddies a good scare? The
best way to do this was with the iconic horror series Scary
Stories to Tell in the Dark. These stories had some of the most
frightening tales filled with chills, thrills and jump scares. Now
the stories have been brought to life in the live-action film opening
in theaters on August 9.
Stories to Tell in the Dark takes place in 1968 in the small town
of Mill Valley where anything scary will come back to haunt its
residents. This doesn’t actually include ghouls; some characters have
their own unresolved conflicts that they’re dealing with. But little
do they know the real terror of what they’d be facing. On Halloween
night, teenagers Stella, Chuck, Auggie and Ramon make their way over
to a “haunted” house where a girl named Sarah Bellows used to
live hundreds of years ago. Rumor has it that she lived a terrifying
life and wrote creepy stories in a book. But when the teens discover
that book, they don’t realize that these stories are about to come to
life and all of them will be on a fight for their lives against
of the books will see memorable tales in the movie, including
“Harold,” “The Big Toe” and the disgustingly fun one “The
Red Spot.” The film’s director Andre Ovredal and screenplay writer
Guillermo del Toro added some creative details in these stories that
blend well with the books. The film’s stories don’t follow the exact
moments that happen in the books, but del Toro and Ovredal added in
unique elements to give these stories a new kind of twist. And
thankfully, it doesn’t take that much away from what fans remember
from the books.
Toro, who made a surprise appearance at the advanced screening in
Hollywood, California, said that he wanted to put something together
that horror fans would love whether it’s for an adult or a child.
wanted to do sort of a young adult equivalent in this movie for kids,
for families,” del Toro said. “I think there are three
generations who read this book. So Grandma, Dad, Mom, whoever wants
to come is fine to see the movie. It’s beautiful, it’s fun, it’s
makes this movie so terrifying is how grisly each ghoul is. Harold,
who fans might remember as the trotting scarecrow who lays skin out
to dry, has the face of nightmares. With his pumpkin head and bugs
crawling out of his face, that’s enough to give audiences a giant
shudder. But when his story begins in a similar way as to what
happens in the written story, that’s when the nightmare truly comes
of nightmares, readers may also be familiar with “The Dream-” the
story about the girl who sees a pale woman with long black hair in a
dark bedroom and eerily whispers “This is an evil place. Run away
while you still can.” Not only does the pale woman appear in the
movie, but she makes her presence so memorable that it’s almost too
much to handle.
every monster that shows up, one of the most talked about ones will
be the Jangly Man. He is technically a new character although he
makes a connection with one of the most chilling stories from the
original book. If the Jangly Man looks familiar at all, it’s because
he’s played by Troy James- the contortionist from America’s
who made audiences scream and gasp with his spine-tingling twists.
stars of the film ought to have promising careers ahead of them after
putting all their dedication in becoming horror icons. Zoe Margaret
Colletti plays Stella, the smart and shy girl who blossoms
beautifully as the film’s final girl. Michael Garza also does
splendidly as the leading man who stands up to bullies and knows when
to run from danger. Then there is Austin Zajur who plays Chuck, the
clown of the group and later finds himself in probably the most
harrowing scene of the movie with the pale woman. Natalie Ganzhorn
plays Ruth, the most typical 1968 girl one can imagine. Her big scene
with “The Red Spot” is incredibly bizarre as she tries to find
out what is happening with that red mark on her face. The second that
spider leg pops out, all hell breaks loose- kind of literally.
movie has a number of jump scenes that are frightening beyond belief.
But the film is not like watching horror that is simply meant to
cause panic and shock. This film is about the memories of being young
and having those scary sleepovers when youth was just starting to
appreciate horror. It’s those early moments that horror buffs will
appreciate as they see their favorite ghost stories brought to life
on the big screen. The film could’ve added some other classics from
the books (“What Do You Come For,” “The Girl Who Stood on a
Grave” or “The Bride”) even if it was just for a brief moment.
But the ones that were used were fun, nonetheless, and are bound to
give scary movie buffs a good time.
