New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s activist daughter, Michaela Kennedy-Cuomo, came out as demisexual during pride month. Here’s 5 things to know about her.

While New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was at the forefront to try and contain the spread of Coronavirus, he got some much needed help from his 23-year-old daughter, Michaela Kennedy-Cuomo. She proved herself to be an incredible role model for young people, joining her father, 62, during a message to New Yorkers. In the months since, she has also been open about her sexuality and her struggle with societal labels, revealing she identifies as demisexual. Here are five things you need to know about Michaela Kennedy-Cuomo.

1. Michaela came out as demisexual.

In honor of Pride Month, Michaela Kennedy Cuomo posted a selfie of herself with a background made up of rainbow flags, and opened up about her queer identity. She later offered some more insight about her sexual orientation during an Instagram Live with activist and author Donato Tramuto, revealing she identifies as demisexual. PFLAG describes it as individuals who only feel sexually attracted to someone when they have an emotional bond with the person. “When I was in elementary school, I feared that I was lesbian. When I was in middle school, I came out to my family and close friends as bisexual. When I was in high school, I discovered pansexuality and thought, ‘That’s the flag for me.’ ” Michaela explained. “I’ve recently learned more about demisexuality and have believed that that identity resonates with me most.”

2. She comes from a very prominent family.

Not only is Michaela the daughter of the New York Governor, her mother, Kerry Kennedy, is a celebrated human rights activist and author. Furthermore, Michaela’s family is connected to American politics and one of the most well known political families in the United States. Her maternal grandfather was United States Senator Robert F. Kennedy, making her great uncle President John F. Kennedy. On her father’s side, Michaela is the niece of CNN correspondent Chris Cuomo. Michaela has two older twin sisters, Cara Ethel Kennedy-Cuomo and Mariah Matilda Kennedy-Cuomo.

3. She attended an Ivy League school.

Prior to the Coronavirus pandemic, Michaela was wrapping up her final year at Brown University. She majored in Education and Human Development, with a focus on Social Inequality, according to her LinkedIn page. While attending Brown, Michaela wrote for the Brown Political Review as a Culture Writer.

4. She’s already embracing political activism.

While attending Brown, Michaela became one of the major leaders on her campus for the It’s On Us Campaign. The campaign began under the Obama administration and was a major tentpole for Vice President Joe Biden‘s time at the White House. It’s On Us combats sexual assault on college campuses by encouraging bystanders to horrific sexual crimes to speak up without penalty, empowering victims as well. Along with meeting Vice President Biden — and posting about it regularly on Instagram — she also shared images from It’s On Us week at her campus.

5. Michaela gets political online.

Apart from her Instagram, Michaela’s Twitter account also showcases some real activism. “Respect Existence or Expect Resistance,” reads the bio underneath her Twitter profile. In June 2019, Michaela used her Twitter account to speak out against former political candidate Roy Moore, Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and President Donald Trump for creating legislation “that protects privileged assailants at the expense of the survivor.”

Kamala Harris‘ stepdaughter Ella Emhoff and her boyfriend Sam Hine have taken their love to the French Riviera. The artist, 22, and her GQ editor boyfriend, 27, spent the day on a yacht in Saint-Tropez, France on June 29. The two were photographed toasting their drinks, sharing kisses, snapping some selfies, and enjoying the view on Tuesday. See the PICS HERE.

Ella — the daughter of Kamala’s husband and second gentleman Douglas Emhoff and his ex-wife —rocked a green bikini, a blue baseball cap, and black sunglasses for the outing, while her boyfriend opted for purple and red patterned swim trunks and blue-tinted sunglasses. On Tuesday, Ella shared more snapshots from her French getaway on Instagram, captioning the series of slides: “fun times in france.” The post featured hotel snapshots, food pics, and even a glimpse of her mom Kerstin Emhoff.

Ella and Sam first sparked romance rumors in February, just one month after her stepmom’s inauguration as the 49th vice president of the United States. The two have since been spotted out and about in New York various times, including dining together at a restaurant in Chinatown in February, holding hands in the West Village in March, and strolling Manhattan in May.

Ella first captured the attention of America when she arrived at the inauguration of stepmom Kamala and President Joe Biden in January; the Parsons School of Design graduate wore a Miu Miu coat that captivated fashion enthusiasts everywhere, resulting in her being hailed as the inauguration’s breakout fashion star.

The exposure has yielded many fashion ventures for the vice president’s stepdaughter. In late January, Ella signed a modeling contract with IMG Models, the agency that also reps Gigi Hadid and Barbara Palvin. Later that month, she made her debut at New York Fashion Week, modeling for Proenza Schouler’s fall 2021 show. Ella also released a collection of knitwear in February that quickly sold out. And in early June, Ella participated in her first Vogue photoshoot, rocking an “ugly-chic” mullet.

Kim Jackson: Georgia’s First LGBT State Senator Urges Other Women Like Her To Run For Office

Kim Jackson: Georgia’s First LGBT State Senator Urges Other Women Like Her To Run For Office

‘This isn’t your grandmother’s Georgia anymore.’ These are the words of Kim Jackson, who believes that none of the state’s new voter suppression laws will stop other progressives from getting elected there.

When Kim Jackson was growing up in a “one-stoplight town”, she never imagined that one day she would become the first queer state Senator in Georgia. But after her surprise win in a fairly conservative Georgia district in the 2020 elections, the reaction of one young woman from her former high school encapsulated for her why it was so important that she had run for office and succeeded.

The young woman “direct messaged me after my election and she said, ‘You know, I go to the high school you graduated from and it’s really homophobic even now. But seeing you get elected let me know that maybe something good can come out of our town, cause you did!’”

“I will always hold that message close to my heart”, Jackson told HollywoodLife in an exclusive interview. “Because I do think it exemplifies what so many young folks who come from places like I come from needed to see… I’m very grateful to be a hope bearer in that way for so many people.”

Jackson, who is also Black, is a hope bearer, especially since she managed to get elected in a Georgia district that is deeply religiously diverse. She succeeded she explains, through a very hands-on campaign of meeting her voters at meet and greets in their homes two or three nights a week before the pandemic. Then in numerous zoom meetings.

Kim, who is also an ordained minister, loved meeting the people that she would represent and talking to them about the issues that were important to them.

“It’s my job to sit in person with people and ask questions. That’s what gives me energy”, she enthuses.

But she absolutely believes that her election as a Black queer woman – along with the election of two Democratic senators, Ralphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff – and with President Joe Biden winning the state, “symbolizes that Georgia is not your grandmother’s Georgia.”

“So many people just have kind of written off Georgia as this kind of country place where white straight men are going to be the people who get to run this country and run the state. My election proved otherwise,” she confidently asserts. “Georgia is very capable and willing to elect an out Black queer woman. And while I may be the first, I won’t be the last.”

Good to hear her prediction, especially after Georgia, became infamously the first state to pass sweeping voter suppression and potentially voter nullification laws after the state “turned blue” in the 2020 election. Clearly, the white Republican men who had traditionally run the state were terrified by the prospect of losing their grip on power at the highest levels of the state government and they were determined to prevent that from happening again. It didn’t help that former President Trump pleaded in a phone call with Georgia Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, to somehow “find” him over 11,000 votes (that didn’t exist) so he could take Georgia’s Electoral College votes away from Biden and have them awarded to himself.

When Jackson was elected she thought she would be focused on passing legislation to improve the lives of families and women, in her district and state. “It’s really similar to how I came to do ministry. I felt very much called to make people’s lives a little better,” she recounts. In fact, she decided to run for the Senate after working with a group of other women to get legislation passed to get a huge backlog of rape kits in Georgia tested as evidence in rape cases.

“Tears were streaming down my face,” she remembers. However, she never expected that once elected, she would be spending her first months in office fighting Georgia’s proposed new laws that would ensure that  Black, minority, disabled and young people would find it much harder to vote in the state.

 

 

 

The new laws make it harder to vote by mail, to absentee vote, to use drop boxes for ballots and could shorten voting hours, close polling stations, and consolidate voting districts. It makes it illegal to provide free water and food to people waiting in lines, often for hours, to vote. As well and even more egregious than this, they could even allow the Republicans to overturn the results of Georgia elections if they don’t like them.

Jackson found herself fighting tooth and nail along with her other fellow Democrats in the Republican-dominated Legislature to at least get rid of the worst of the worst of the new laws, like a ban on Sunday voting which took direct aim at Black voters who historically voted in groups after attending church. She takes comfort in the fact that the final bill wasn’t as bad as it was originally.

“As a Black American in the South, anytime people make it more difficult for us to vote, we cannot help but remember the people who come before us, who literally bled and died trying to get access to the ballot”, she asserts. “I feel like I am carrying on the work of our ancestors and I stand in that legacy of making sure that we secure access to the ballot for everyone. I receive energy and hope from that legacy.”

Jackson talks about the steep hurdles that Black Americans have had to overcome historically in Southern states in order to cast their ballots, and yet they did overcome them. “There was a time when we had to open up literacy schools to teach people how to read so they could be able to vote because that was the requirement… and to teach people about the Constitution so they could pass these poll tests,” she points out. “So if we have to go inside buildings to get to drop boxes, these are hurdles that we are primed to jump over. Because we’ve already done things that were much more difficult.”

If Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and his Republican lawmakers think that by changing voting rules and restricting access to the polls that they will be able to retain total control of Georgia’s government, then he is seriously wrong according to Jackson. “They changed the rules because we were winning and we will keep winning”, she insists. “Georgia is increasingly a blue state. We will register more and more people to vote and we will get these folks to the polls”, she insists. “We will focus on educating people on how they can still go vote and making sure they know exactly where to go.”

Jackson also is passionate about passing gun safety laws in Georgia, as well as expanding Medicaid and more – but those will be tough battles in Georgia. Image Credit: Allison Shirreffs

Jackson explains that yes she is working with Stacey Abrams organization, Fair Fight, which has been responsible along with other progressive activist groups for registering thousands of minority and young voters to vote in Georgia’s elections and to educate them about how to do it. They will push forward on this work despite Georgia’s new laws, which also elicited widespread criticism from Atlanta-based corporations like Coca-Cola and Delta.

She believes that Kemp and the state Republicans have actually hurt, not helped themselves. “I think the laws have energized people. You know, it’s like when somebody hurts you. It makes you mad and you get right back up and fight. People will be going back to the ballot box out of revenge.”

Because of this, this first-time lawmaker is optimistic that Democrats will win all the state-wide elections in 2022, including the Governorship. Will Stacey Abrams run for governor again after losing in a very tight race in 2018? “We all hope, pray and believe that Stacey will be running for governor”, she responds. And will she win? “Absolutely, absolutely,” insists Jackson.

She also predicts that Raphael Warnock will be re-elected to his Senate seat, despite all the opposition efforts. But in the meantime, a determined Jackson has been working hard and across the aisle, to make life better and safer for her constituents. She succeeded in driving a bill into law that allows women to get out of their leases if they are being stalked. “It was really important for me to accomplish this because it will save women’s lives… if we can get women to safety, if we can get women out of the place where their stalker knows they live and they can have a fresh start, then we can save their lives”, she tells Hollywoodlife.

Jackson’s next priority is to get a bill passed that enables people who are victims of sexual assault, to get a protective order. Currently, you can only get one in Georgia if you are a victim of domestic violence (in other words, your assaulter is your domestic partner ), or you can get one if you are being stalked. But, if the person who assaults you isn’t your domestic partner (they could be someone that you dated casually or just knew), then you can’t get a restraining order. You fall through the cracks. Jackson wants to stop that.

And yes, she worked with Republicans to get her law allowing the breaking of a lease passed, and now she is working with one who will co-sign her protective order bill. “You can’t pass a bill in Georgia without Republicans”, she says matter-of-factly. She has also worked with Republicans on a criminal justice reform bill. “We’re able to find places where Republicans and Democrats can come together on issues like women’s safety and adoptions which are originating in the foster care system.

Not surprisingly, Jackson is proud that despite her position as a Democrat – the minority party in the state’s Senate and House of Representatives – she has been able to make positive change. And she hasn’t encountered any hostility or pushback from her Republican colleagues about the fact that she is queer. “My colleagues will say to me, ‘oh I know, I found out that you’re gay’ and they whisper the word ‘gay’. And then they are very quick to say ‘I’m cool about it’”, she recounts. “And it is often an opening for legislators to say to me ‘oh, you know my daughter is like you.’”

She believes that it’s because there are Republican colleagues who do have sons and daughters “like her”, that some “pretty terrible bills” that would have prevented same-sex couples from adopting, as well as a bill banning trans kids from participating in sports, have all quietly died.

Jackson may be the first Black female LGBT state senator in Georgia, but there are four others across the country. And what her success tells her is that others like her and other young women, in general, can run and get elected into political offices, despite what they think are long odds.

“I’m living proof that you can do it”, she tells HollywoodLife. When she began to think about running for office, she initially thought that she should wait 20 years, until she was older, but her mom stepped in and told her “why do something when you’re old when you can do it when you’re young?” Her advice pushed her to take the step to do what she felt “called” to do.

Then she received encouragement and concrete help from a progressive organization called Run For Something that gives training to progressive candidates running for political office at the state and local levels. “They were the very first organization to endorse me – they were the first to believe in me – a young Black woman who had never run for office”, she enthuses. “They gave me training and an advisor to talk through strategy. They really helped me as a first-time candidate.” She encourages other young progressives who are considering running for office to contact Run For Something. Or, if you would like to donate to Run Gor Something, click here.

Her other advice to aspiring political candidates counsels Jackson, who has been married to her partner for 10 years, is to “surround yourself with people who believe in you and will remind you that you can do it, when you may not believe in yourself.”

Jackson definitely listened, and look where she is now.

The Royal Ascot is back! The Queen was beaming as she arrived to the event, marking another public appearance without late husband Prince Philip by her side.

Queen Elizabeth, 95, looked so regal as she arrived to the annual Royal Ascot! The head of the royal family wore an elegant turquoise blue coat and matching hat for the event, held on Saturday, June 19. She was beaming as she stepped out of a car, smiling and laughing with other event attendees as she stood outdoors. In another photo, the equestrian appeared elated as she gazed at a beautiful horse — one of her favorite animals.

She paired the mint-colored ensemble with a black pair of low-heeled leather shoes that featured a gold buckle, accessorizing with a pearl necklace and a show-stopping brooch. The event was a momentous occasion for The Queen after she missed the event for the first time in 68 years during COVID-19. The 2020 event still took place, but without an audience due to social distancing measures that were in place. The Queen was still able to observe the the Ascot via her television at Windsor Castle.

The Royal Ascot is an annual event on the Royal social calendar since it was started by Queen Anne all the way back in 1711. It has always been held at the Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, England each June, and runs for a full five days. The event attracts the top racehorsers from around the globe to compete for coveted titles and, of course, prize money. A ticket is highly coveted to the exclusive event, which has a strict dress code: men must wear a full morning suit with a top hat, while women are required to wear a hat with a minimum base of four inches.

This year’s event occurred with some limitations still in place. All attendees were required to take a rapid COVID-19 test upon arrival, in addition two PCR tests on the day of the event and five days after. The Queen’s arrival also looked different: this year, the 95-year-old did not arrive by her usual carriage, which generally leads a procession with other members of her family.

The event marks one of Queen Elizabeth’s first public appearances since the death of her beloved husband Prince Philip, who passed in April at the age of 99. Just a week ago, was hosting a reception for President Joe Biden, 78, and First Lady Jill Biden, 70, during the G7 Leader Summit.

President Joe Biden was speaking at the U.S-Russia summit in Geneva when he accidentally referred to Vladimir Putin as Donald Trump, but quickly corrected himself.

Joe Biden, 78, made a minor snafu when speaking at the U.S.-Russia summit in Geneva, Switzerland on Wednesday, June 15. The president was delivering a speech at the podium when, on accident, he briefly referred to Russian President Vladimir Putin as former U.S. President Donald Trump. “I caught part of President Trum…uh, Putin’s press conference,” Biden said. Video of Biden’s gaffe was shared by users on Twitter, which you can see below.

Biden met with Putin, 68, on June 16 as part of his first trip abroad since being inaugurated as the 46th U.S. president in January. The political leaders spoke at the lakeside Villa La Grange for nearly four hours, according to Reuters. Discussions at the meeting reportedly centered on cyber attacks, the imprisonment of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, and more.

Ahead of the meeting, Biden called Putin a “worthy adversary,” according to USA Today. After the meeting, Biden reportedly told reporters, “I did what I came to do.” Biden departed for the overseas trip on June 9 and has already attended the Group of Seven meeting in the United Kingdom and the NATO summit in Belgium.

Biden’s relationship with Putin strongly contrasts to that of Trump’s. While in office, Trump, 75, was criticized for cozying up to Putin and refusing to accept evidence that there was Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. In a recent interview with NBC News, Putin said that Trump was “an extraordinary individual, talented individual.”

Trump has kept a low profile since leaving office in January — largely due to being banned from multiple social media platforms. He made an appearance at a rally in North Carolina on June 5, during which he was criticized for apparently wearing his trousers backwards. Joy Behar of The View was among the many to mock the 45th president. “This guy’s running around with pants that looked like he pooped in them or something!” Behar, 78, joked to her co-hosts. “It’s weird.” Trump did not respond to the buzz.

Less than a year after Kanye West announced he was running for president, Caitlyn Jenner has her sights set on becoming the governor of California!

Caitlyn Jenner, 71, and  Kanye West, 44, have both announced political ambitions in the last year — but the I Am Cait star doesn’t plan to an endorsement or tips from the Yeezy designer. “Caitlyn and Kanye don’t really speak anymore, so she has no plans to reach out to Kanye for an endorsement of her run for governor,” a source close to the Olympic gold medalist tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. Caitlyn formally filed paperwork for her gubernatorial campaign on April 23, while Kanye took to Twitter to announce his intention to run in the 2020 presidential election — later won by Joe Biden — last July.

While Caitlyn and Kanye previously had a close relationship, the rapper’s ongoing divorce from Kim Kardashian, 40, has put a strain on things. “They always got along really well, but when Kim and Kanye split, it affected their relationship. It became difficult for the family because they didn’t want to take sides,” the source added. “They have always had respect for one another, but Caitlyn wants to ensure she doesn’t overstep any boundaries with Kim. [Kim and Kanye’s] divorce changed things between them,” they explained.

As for the rest of her family — including daughters Kendall, 25, and Kylie, 23, and step-children via ex-wife Kris JennerKourtney, 42, Kim, 40, Khloe, 36, and Rob, 34 — Caitlyn had made it clear she doesn’t wsnt public support. “I did speak with all my children and I said, ‘Hey, I don’t want one tweet, I don’t want you—this is my deal,’” Caitlyn during a May 26 interview on CBS This Morning. “[I told them] not to be involved whatsoever….I said if anybody asks any questions in the media — because obviously they are in the media — I just said, say ‘no comment,’ address your comment to me,” she explained.

Our source echoed that politics is “off-limits” during family dinners, but Kendall and Kylie support their dad no matter what. “Kendall and Kylie support Caitlyn and remain extremely close to her. The family is divided when it comes to politics, so they really all just try to keep that separate. It’s sort of an off-limits topic at the dinner table,” they told HL. Both Caitlyn and Kanye’s political runs haven’t been without controversy: Kanye caused a stir at a rally in North Carolina where he said, “I almost killed my daughter” in reference to a conversation he and Kim had about aborting her pregnancy with North West, 7. Caitlyn has also ruffled feathers with comments, including her stance that “biological boys” who are trans competing on “girls’ sports” teams isn’t “fair.”

“Caitlyn would love her family to stand behind her but doesn’t expect her family to participate in any serious way in this campaign,” our source also said. “She hopes things will change because she has always had political aspirations and could truly use the support. She knows how much power her family has when it comes to future votes,” they explained.

Prince Charles, Justin Trudeau and Boris Johnson were also in attendance at an outdoor royal reception amid the G7 leader summit.

Queen Elizabeth, 95, welcomed President Joe Biden, 78, and First Lady Jill Biden, 70, in the United Kingdom! The reigning monarch hosted a reception for the Group Seven world leaders Eden Project botanical garden on Friday, June 11. Queen Elizabeth was beaming as she wore a white and pink floral patterned dress, perfect for the late Spring season. The ensemble fell past her knees, showing off her black leather shoes. The 95-year-old also sported her usual white gloves and black leather handbag.

Jill stunned in a beige colored trench coat — a nod to legendary British design house Burberry — accessorizing with a blue clutch and suede shoes. Jill smiled warmly during a conversation with the Queen, with Joe by her side. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, 49, was also in attendance, sporting a light gray suit with a pink tie. In other photos, Joe and Jill could be seen chatting with United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie, as well as talking to Prince Charles, 71. “Joe and I are both looking forward to meeting the Queen,” Jill said ahead of the trip, marking their first overseas visit since Joe became president. “That’s an exciting part of the visit for us,” she added.

The president and first lady have had a jam packed schedule since touching down in the U.K. Earlier the same day, Jill met up with Kate Middleton, 39, who at Connor Downs Academy in Hayle, West Cornwall. The Duchess of Cambridge and Jill were offered a tour of the primary school as they caught up, matching in pink outfits! Kate stunned in a gorgeous fuchsia midi dress designed by Alexander McQueen and carried a L.K. Bennett handbag, while Jill opted for a light pink blazer.

The previous evening, Jill and Joe also enjoyed some time alone! The couple went for a stroll before sitting down in an outdoor area of the Tregenna Castle Hotel in St. Ives. Jill swapped out her heels and dresses for casual (and more practical) sneakers and jeans. “I’m enjoying it — we’re enjoying our walk,” Joe said to the media, speaking loudly over his security team. “I’ll tell ya, it’s so beautiful here, it doesn’t even need the sun,” he added, referencing the somewhat cloudy weather.

Joe Biden reflected on son Beau — who died at age 46 after a battle with brain cancer — in a deeply moving speech to mark Memorial Day.

Joe Biden, 78, visited the grave of his late son Beau with his grandson Hunter, 15. The two shared a touching moment as Joe embraced Beau’s younger child as they walked side by side in photos captured on Sunday, May 30th. Joe and Hunter were joined by First Lady Jill Biden, 69, and the president’s daughter Ashley, 39, as they marked the sixth anniversary of Beau’s death in Wilmington, Delaware. In the photos, Joe looked sombre as the glanced at his teenage grandson, who kept his face hidden behind a black face mask.

Joe spoke candidly about Beau, who lost his battle to brain cancer in 2015 at just 46 years old, after a visit to St. Joseph’s church — also Beau’s burial site. “As many of you know this is a hard day for us. Six years ago today, Hunter lost his dad and I lost my son,” Joe said at at Memorial Day service at the Veterans Memorial Park. “If he were here, he would be here as well paying his respects to all those who gave so much for our country. A lot of time passes, but you all know as well as I do that the moment that we celebrate it is the toughest day of the year. We’re honored but it’s a tough day,” he said in the deeply emotional address.

“Brings back everything. So I can’t thank you enough for your continued service to the country,” he said to the audience of service members and their family, reminding them that their late children “live in your hearts and in their children as well.” He added, “Thank you for allowing us to grieve together today.” In other photos, he was seen shaking hands with church officials as Hunter stood by his side. Wearing a dapper navy suit and tie, the Pennsylvania native still managed to crack a smile through the emotions of the day. In addition to Hunter, 15, Beau was also father to daughter Natalie, 16.

Just days ago, Joe also shared touching words about Beau’s decision to join the Delaware National Guard unit in Iraq. “He gave up the seat and had the courage to appoint a fellow who had been a Republican attorney general as attorney general while he — while he went. The proudest thing he ever did,” the president said on Friday, May 28. “He spent a year in Iraq. And it was — it was one of the great honors of his life to do it. Won the Bronze Star, the Conspicuous Service Medal, and other awards — like many of you have — but he never, ever talked about it,” he said.

Oops! Jill Biden needed a hand after her stylish leopard print pumps got stuck in some pavement while visiting Kansas City.

Jill Biden, 69, always looks stylish — but she had a bit of a fashion mishap on Thursday, May 27! The First Lady was walking alongside security and a photographer as she was heading to the Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport in Kansas City, Missouri when her leopard print pump got wedged into some pavement. She was quickly helped by the officers and photographer as she attempted to move her stuck foot, smiling and laughing the entire time. The incident nearly lead to her tripping, but fortunately that was avoided.

The reflection of Air Force One could be seen behind her in the window, which Jill was about to board to continue her tour in Michigan to encourage Americans to continue getting vaccinated against COVID-19. She paired her animal print shoes with a two-piece chocolate brown set, consisting of a blazer and straight leg pants.

Dr. Biden has been making plenty of appearances of late, including one with actress  Jennifer Garner, 49! The two women posed for a photo op West Virginia — Jen’s home state — on Thursday, May 13 just hours after Joe Biden said masks are no longer required outdoors for vaccinated Americans. Jill once again looked stylish in a blush pink blazer and white dress, along with a floral printed pump.  “We feel naked…I didn’t mean it that way!” Jill joked about being mask-free, ditching her pink version that she wore on the plane. “We just learned [about the new rule] as we got off the plane. And here I had gone out to buy one that was coordinated with my outfit so you can’t win,” she also said on the tarmac.

On May 4, the president issued an update about vaccinations across America — urging those who have not received theirs to make an appointment. “I want to thank the 105 million Americans of every background who are fully protected from one of the deadliest pandemics in our history,” he said. “There’s one fact I want every American to know: People who are not fully vaccinated can still die every day from COVID-19. Look at the folks in your community who have gotten vaccinated and are getting back to living their lives — their full lives. Look at the grandparents united with their grandchildren, the friends getting together again. This is your choice. It’s life and death,” he urged.

Ricky Schroder is under fire after a filmed confrontation with a Costco employee over a mask wearing mandate, which have not been lifted by the state of California.

Ricky Schroder, 51, went viral after demanding he be let into Costco without a face mask. The Silver Spoons actor filmed an aggressive confrontation with a store supervisor after being denied entry due to the company’s rules around masks, along with California state guidelines around COVID-19, on Sunday, May 16. The video begins with Ricky approaching the employee after an initial conversation, asking, “What’s your name?”

Come on, #RickySchroder. Don’t you have better things to do? Like finding auditions? Although I'll admit, your recent performance as a Karen was pretty convincing. #stopharassingretailemployees https://t.co/Yo1cKaVEIC

“My name is Jason, and I’m a front end supervisor,” the staff member replied, pointing to his name tag. Ricky then asked, “and why aren’t you letting me in?” Jason politely explained that the decision was due to California’s mask mandate, which remains in place — despite President Joe Biden‘s comments that “fully vaccinated Americans” can now go maskless outdoors. “Because in the state of of California and in the county of Los Angeles — and at Costco — there has been no change to our mask policy,” Jason told the actor, who was becoming increasingly agitated.

“Didn’t you see the news? Nationwide — Costco said you don’t have to wear masks,” Ricky replied, as Jason held his ground regarding California’s state rules — noting that there is a possibility they could change by mid-June. Ricky then asked the staffer if he was “going to listen to these people” who are “in power” as they “destroyed our economy.”

Has-been former child actor Ricky Schroeder has nothing better to do with his time then to harass people just trying to do their jobs. What a sad, desperate way to try to make yourself relevant again. It will never happen you #SadOldMan! #KEVIN #CallTheManagerKevin

— CleanHouse2020 (@CleanHouse2018) May 16, 2021

“What I am going to do is follow their guidelines,” the Costco employee once again responded. At that point, Ricky turned the camera around to film himself — demanding that his followers get refunds from the wholesale retailer, just like him. “I’m getting my refund from Costco. I suggest everyone in California get their refund from Costco — give up your membership from Costco — until they remove this,” he 24 alum then quipped.

Twitter immediately blasted the actor for his behavior. “Come on, #RickySchroder. Don’t you have better things to do? Like finding auditions? Although I’ll admit, your recent performance as a Karen was pretty convincing. #stopharassingretailemployees,” one wrote. “Anyone who harasses a store or restaurant employee over a mask policy is despicable. These (usually underpaid) workers are doing their job and trying to keep everyone safe. Haranguing them, as actor Ricky Schroder did at an LA Costco, is the definitive asshole move,” another added.

Ricky made reference to President Joe Biden’s comments on Friday, which have confused many Americans. “Starting today, if you’re fully vaccinated and you’re outdoors and not in a big crowd, you no longer need to wear a mask,” Joe said, referencing CDC guidelines. “I want to be absolutely clear. If you’re in a crowd, like a stadium or at a conference or a concert, you still need to wear a mask, even if you’re outside. But beginning today, gathering with a group of friends in a park, going for a picnic as long as you are vaccinated and outdoors, you can do it without a mask,” the President explained. Mask wearing mandates are, however, in control of each individual state.

Vice President Kamala Harris shared a sweet new photo of her and her stepdaughter Ella Emhoff happily posing together after Ella’s commencement and told her to ‘keep dreaming.’

Kamala Harris, 56, is celebrating Ella Emhoff becoming a college graduate! The vice president and her husband Doug Emhoff‘s 21-year-old daughter, whom he shares with ex-wife Kerstin Emhoff, 54, had her commencement from The New School’s Parsons School of Design in New York City this week and she shared a joyous pic to Instagram with a sweet caption. In the photo, Ella and Kamala, who is called “Momola” by her stepchildren, including Ella’s brother Cole Emhoff, 26, are posing and smiling with their arms around each other.

I am so proud of you. Keep dreaming with ambition and there is nothing you cannot achieve. Love, Momala,” she lovingly wrote alongside the photo.

Just one day before Kamala’s post, Doug, 56, also took to his Instagram to share a photo with Ella all dressed up in her cap and gown, which can be seen above. “My darling Ella, we are such proud parents! We love you so much, and are very much looking forward to all you do in the future. And, to the other Class of 2021 graduates out there, huge congratulations!” he wrote in the caption.

Ella’s graduation comes while she’s in the midst of launching a fashion career. She signed with IMG Models in Jan. and made her runway debut at the Proenza Schouler at New York Fashion Week in Feb. She also appeared on her first magazine cover with Dust a week later.

The talented model made major headlines at the 2021 Inauguration after Joe Biden was elected president and her stepmom Kamala was elected vice president. She showed up to the important event in a dress she designed with designer Batsheva Hay and they later launched a knitwear collection. In addition to gushing over her love of fashion, in interviews this past year, Ella has gushed over Kamala and her role as the first female vice president in the United States.

“It’s so empowering to see someone who’s so sure of herself and is not going to back down. What’s so important about her is that she’s super comfortable with her assertiveness,” she told Glamour about Kamala in Oct. 2020. “She doesn’t see that as a weakness, and she’s not scared. To see someone who is running like that with Joe for the highest of offices—I hope it will open up the floodgates for a lot more women and especially women of color to just run and then hopefully make it to the top. I think that we’ve needed someone like her to come along.”

Joe Biden has proved he’s a true gentleman, surprising his wife of 43 years by picking her a flower while walking hand-in-hand across the lawn at The White House.

Jill Biden and Joe Biden may have been married for 43 years, but their romance is very much still alive! President Joe and Dr. Jill were seen walking hand-in-hand on April 29, when the POTUS surprised her with a sweet, romantic gesture. He bent down while strolling across the lawn at the White House to pick a dandelion from the grass. The couple then boarded Marine One, bound for Plains, Georgia, to meet with former president Jimmy Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter.

The First Lady stunned in a blue dress with a yellow and green floral pattern, a matching protective face mask, and a yellow heels. She held onto the flower as she boarded the plane with her husband. Twitter users were quick to comment on how sweet Joe’s action was. “I’m glad we elected a president that cares for his wife as well as the American people,” one person wrote, while another joked, “I’ve already seen her hold her husband’s hand more times than Trump’s entire presidency.”

It comes just a few months after Joe opened up in a 2020 interview with CBS Sunday Morning about his enduring relationship, “I adore her,” he began. “I’m gonna sound so stupid — I was saying the other day, when she comes down the steps and I look at her, my heart still skips a beat.”

Most recently, Joe confirmed he personally called the family of George Floyd to discuss the murder conviction of his killer, former Minneapolis Police cop Derek Chauvin. After just 10 hours of deliberations, a jury found the ex-police officer guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd’s May 25, 2020 death. Biden told his seven-year-old daughter Gianna that her father “did change the world,” as his death set off nationwide protests about police brutality and systematic racism.

“I just spoke with George Floyd’s family again. A remarkable family of extraordinary courage. Nothing can ever bring their brother, their father back. But this can be a giant step forward in the march towards justice in America,” he said in a statement, adding, “What I just discussed with the Floyd family, the guilty verdict, does not bring back, George. But, through the family’s pain they are finding purpose. So George’s legacy will not be just about his death, but about what we must do in his memory.”

As Joe Biden delivered his first speech to Congress, Senator Ted Cruz pretty much passed out. Twitter instantly went after ‘Sleepy Ted.’

Dreaming of sunny days in Cancún? Senator Ted Cruz was caught pouting in the audience during President Joe Biden‘s first speech before Congress, even falling asleep at one point. As Cruz struggled to keep his eyes open while Biden spoke about immigration and the situation at the Southern border, Twitter absolutely roasted the Texas senator for his inability to pay attention.

“Dreaming of the sun and beaches of Cancun,” The View co-host and CNN analyst Ana Navarro tweeted. “Ted Cruz is sleeping as soundly now as he did in the Ritz Carlton while Texans were freezing to death,” one Twitter user wrote, referring to the senator’s actions during the historic February storm that left eight Texans dead. While millions went without electricity and heat as the state’s power grids failed, Cruz was caught flying to Mexico for a family vacation.

Twitter users also questioned Cruz for calling Biden’s speech “boring but radical” and an “outline of his socialist vision” despite clearly being asleep as the president spoke. “Who is sending these Tweets for you Teddy, since you were caught sleeping during the speech?” a Twitter user responded to his tweet. “Three words for Teddy: boring, and cowardly,” another person tweeted.

Cruz aside, it was a triumphant night for Biden. “Madam Speaker. Madame Vice President. No president has ever said those words from this podium, and it’s about time,” Biden said to cheers as he introduced Vice President Kamala Harris and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. This was the first time that two women sat behind the president at the dais in Congress, and Harris and Pelosi elbow bumped to celebrate the occasion.

People literally broke down in tears of joy and took to the streets cheering, now that justice has been served with Derek Chauvin being found guilty of George Floyd’s murder.

Justice at last! After a Minnesota jury convicted former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin of murdering unarmed Black man George Floyd by kneeling on his neck for more than eight minutes during an arrest, people took to the streets to celebrate. Floyd’s murder on May 25, 2020 sparked nationwide protests and reinvigorated the Black Lives Matter movement. On Tues. Apr. 20, 2021 there was joy instead of pain, as people celebrated the fact that Chauvin will be going to prison for Floyd’s killing. At the site of his murder where a permanent memorial was erected to Floyd, emotions flooded over those gathered, with chants of “Black lives matter.” You can see more  photos of the celebrations in our gallery above.

The jury was given the case to deliberate on the afternoon of Mon. Apr. 19, 2021 and came back the next day with their verdict after only about 10 hours of deliberations. Chauvin had been charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, and was found guilty on all charges. When the verdicts were read live, those at George Floyd Square erupted in cheers, and cars driving through downtown Minneapolis honked their horns in approval of the conviction.

Floyd’s death was caught on video by bystanders watching his arrest. He had been taken into custody for suspicion of passing a forged $20 bill to purchase a sandwich at a Minneapolis deli. Chauvin was seen kneeling on a handcuffed Floyd’s neck, even though he had already been pinned to the ground. Floyd could be heard pleading “I can’t breathe,” while Chauvin was seen kneeling on the man’s neck with his hands casually in his uniform pockets. Even Minneapolis firefighter Genevieve Hansen claims she was forced to stand by helplessly and not allowed to render medical aid to Floyd.

Hansen testified on Mar. 30 — the second day of Chauvin’s trial — that “I could have given medical assistance, and that’s exactly what I should have done,” but she was unable to “because the officers didn’t let [her] on the scene.”  She added, “There was a man being killed… I would have been able to provide medical attention to the best of my abilities. And, this human was denied that right” of Floyd. 

Before news that the jury had reached a verdict, even President Joe Biden weighed in on the case. He told reporters at the White House, “I’m praying the verdict is the right verdict. Which is, I think it’s overwhelming in my view.”

Thousands of National Guard members had been called up to help protect the city of Minneapolis in case of any violence that occurred if the jury had gone a different way. The city had suffered multiple nights of rioting following Floyd’s death in 2020, which saw the Minneapolis P.D.’s Third Precinct looted and burned to the ground, as officers were forced to flee. That was where Chauvin and three other officers at the scene of Floyd’s death were based. All four officers were fired on May 26. Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter on May 29, 2020, with the second degree murder charge upgraded on June 3, 2020.

Walter Mondale, who served as vice president under Jimmy Carter, died at the age of 93 on Apr. 19, according to his family, and tributes from the former president and more are being shared.

Walter Frederick “Fritz” Mondale has died at the age of 93, his family revealed in a statement on Apr. 19, according to CNN. Although no cause was given, it was confirmed that the former vice president passed at his home in downtown Minneapolis while surrounded by family, spokesperson Kathy Tunheim said, the outlet further reported.

“It is with profound sadness that we share news that our beloved dad passed away today in Minneapolis, Minnesota,” Walter’s family said in the statement. “As proud as we were of him leading the presidential ticket for Democrats in 1984, we know that our father’s public policy legacy is so much more than that.”

Once Walter’s death was announced, it didn’t take long for former president Jimmy Carter, 96, who he served under from 1977-1981, and other political figures and celebrities to react.

“During our administration, Fritz used his political skill and personal integrity to transform the vice presidency into a dynamic, policy-driving force that had never been seen before and still exists today. He was an invaluable partner and an able servant of the people of Minnesota, the United States, and the world,” Jimmy said in a statement. “Fritz Mondale provided us all with a model for public service and private behavior. Rosalynn [Carter] and I join all Americans in giving thanks for his exemplary life, and we extend our deepest condolences to his family.”

Walter Mondale believed in the power of government to make a positive difference in people’s lives, and proved it at every stage of his remarkable career—with deep policy knowledge, a tireless work ethic, and uncommon decency. Hillary and I loved him and will miss him very much.

— Bill Clinton (@BillClinton) April 20, 2021

Former president Bill Clinton took to Twitter shortly after Walter’s death to also share a tribute. “Walter Mondale believed in the power of government to make a positive difference in people’s lives, and proved it at every stage of his remarkable career—with deep policy knowledge, a tireless work ethic, and uncommon decency. Hillary and I loved him and will miss him very much,” he wrote.

Walter Mondale championed progressive causes and changed the role of VP—so leaders like @JoeBiden could be the last ones in the room when decisions were made. In selecting Geraldine Ferraro, he also paved the way for @VP to make history. Michelle and I send prayers to his family.

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) April 20, 2021

Barack Obama said that Walter “changed the role of vice president” in a tweet he shared. “Walter Mondale championed progressive causes and changed the role of VP—so leaders like @JoeBiden could be the last ones in the room when decisions were made. In selecting Geraldine Ferraro, he also paved the way for@VP to make history. Michelle and I send prayers to his family,” it read.

On the wall of the Carter Library is a quote of Walter Mondale’s at the end of their time in office: “We told the truth. We obeyed the law. We kept the peace.” That pretty much sums up Walter Mondale’s life and service.

— Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) April 20, 2021

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar also shared a couple of tweets with one reading, “On the wall of the Carter Library is a quote of Walter Mondale’s at the end of their time in office: “We told the truth. We obeyed the law. We kept the peace.” That pretty much sums up Walter Mondale’s life and service.”

Vice President Walter Mondale led an extraordinary life of service—in uniform during the Korean War, as a Senator, and as Vice President. I was able to speak with him just a few days ago and thank him for his service. I'll miss him dearly, and my heart is with his family today.

— Vice President Kamala Harris (@VP) April 20, 2021

Vice President Kamala Harris shared her thoughts of Walter and sadness over his death in a tweet as well. “Vice President Walter Mondale led an extraordinary life of service—in uniform during the Korean War, as a Senator, and as Vice President. I was able to speak with him just a few days ago and thank him for his service. I’ll miss him dearly, and my heart is with his family today,” she wrote.

Before Walter’s death, he reportedly knew the end of his life was near and sent an email, obtained by CNN, to former staffers that acknowledged his “time has come.”

“I am eager to rejoin Joan and Eleanor. Before I Go I wanted to let you know how much you mean to me. Never has a public servant had a better group of people working at their side! Together we have accomplished so much and I know you will keep up the good fight,” he wrote in the moving message.

“Joe in the White House certainly helps,” he added while referencing President Joe Biden. “I always knew it would be okay if I arrived some place and was greeted by one of you!”
In addition to vice president, Walter served as the 23rd Attorney General of Minnesota from 1960-1964, United States Senator of Minnesota from 1964-1976, and the 24th United States Ambassador to Japan from 1993-1996.
Our comfort and healing wishes go out to all those affected by Walter’s death.

Stars are applauding Rep. Maxine Jordan for telling Rep. Jim Jordan to ‘shut your mouth’ as he tried to talk down Dr. Anthony Fauci at a COVID subcommittee hearing.

Even with a Democratic president in Joe Biden who supports him, Director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Antothy Fauci is still taking heat from Republicans in Congress about COVID-19. During a Thurs. Apr. 15 House Coronavirus Crisis Subcommittee hearing, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) had to jump in and tell Rep.Jim Jordan (R-OH) to “Shut your mouth” after he ranted at Dr. Fauci well after his allotted time expired. Video of the exchange with Waters shutting Jordan down has gone viral, with stars applauding the 82-year-old political veteran.

Jordan, 57, lit into Fauci by demanding to know exactly when the COVID-19 pandemic will end, when Americans will have their ‘liberties” back and when public health mandates such as mask wearing will finally be lifted. Fauci responded by telling Jordan it was a false equivalency. “You’re indicating liberty and freedom. I look at it as a public health measure to prevent people from dying and going to hospital,” Fauci told Jordan. The doctor the said American life will begin to return to normal as more and more people receive vaccinations. You can see the full exchange here, with Maxine jumping in at the 6:38 mark below, as well as the isolated soundbite:

Jim was eventually told his time had expired when Committee Chair Rep. James Clyburn, (D-SC) told him that people get their liberties back when 90 percent of the members of the U.S. Congress get vaccinated. Jim then turned and demanded answers from Dr. Fauci, ranting “when, what are the numbers?”

Fauci explained that with more people vaccinated, “level of those with the virus will come down and there will be more flexibility for doing the thing that you’re talking about.” Jordan again demanded, “At what number to we get our liberties back, tell me the number.” Maxine then shut him down hard, yelling “Your time expired sir. You need to respect the chair and shut your mouth!” after Clyburn interrupted Jordan to move the questioning along to another member of the committee.

Stars responded to Maxine telling Jim to shut up with glee. Former Star Trek actor George Takei tweeted, “Hearing Auntie Maxine Waters tell Jim Jordan to shut his mouth is my new favorite thing.” Actress Rosanna Arquette also tweeted Maxine’s words along with praise, writing, “You need to respect the chair and shut your mouth. I love Maxine Waters.”

Washington Post contributor Holly Figueroa O’Reilly gushed, “Maxine Waters telling Jim Jordan to ‘shut your mouth’ is my new f**king ring tone,” while user @TheRealDWoo tweeted, “Everyone has a different standard for declaring a day a ‘Great Day’ Officially a Great Day, I mean I have my standard – you have yours. But, if it happens to be a day when Maxine Waters tells Jim Jordan to shut his mouth.” With Jordan’s reputation for rants and grandstanding, this probably won’t be the last time he pulls such a stunt in Congress. But Twitter users are hoping Maxine is there to shut him down once again next time he does!

It looks like Lil Wayne and Denise Bidot have managed to patch things up after their January split. She smiled and drew their names in the sand inside of a heart.

After several breakups, it appears Lil Wayne and model Denise Bidot have found a way to make up again. The 38-year-old rapper — real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. — shared an Instagram stories video of Denise, 34, kneeling in the sand near the ocean, with the brunette beauty writing their names in the sand and drawing a big heart around them. She used her finger to draw “Denise” with a small heart for “loves Dwayne” then blew a kiss to the camera.

Over the video, Wayne seemed to be teasing a new track, as bars from a song could be heard. He didn’t write anything on the vid, though it seemed to speak for itself that he shared Denise showing so much love in his direction. This would be the first big indication that the pair have reconciled after splitting in early January. Denise hasn’t posted anything to her IG account since Jan. 21, and that was after she scrubbed it of photos of Wayne following their latest breakup.

A post shared by Lil Wayne HQ (@lilwaynehq)

On Jan. 5.,  Denise dropped a cryptic message that read “Pretty disappointing when you defend someone throughout everything and they turn out being just as sh*tty as everyone said they were,” though she didn’t mention Wayne by name,  She also shared a photo of her daughter giving a thumbs up sign and assured fans in caption, “We good over here. Happy Tuesday.” The pair also unfollowed each other on the ‘gram signaling another split.

It came despite the two appearing to be a happy couple again over New Years, where they were seen cuddling close as fireworks were going off overhead. Both Denise and Wayne had big smiles on their faces and were wearing shiny silver New Year’s 2021 novelty glasses.

That reunion came after Denise seemed to break up with Lil Wayne in early Nov. 2020, following his surprise meeting and endorsement for then-President Donald Trump. He shared an Oct. 30 photo standing with Trump giving thumbs up signs with to his Twitter with the caption, “Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”

— Denise Bidot (@DeniseBidot) November 2, 2020

Denise — a Joe Biden supporter — then deleted not just her IG photos of her and Wayne, but her entire Instagram account as they appeared to split up. She kept her Twitter active where on Nov. 2, she wrote, “Wow…can this year be over already,” seemingly in reference to Wayne’s support of Trump. But the pair were back together by Thanksgiving, where he whisked her away on a lavish vacation.

Cindy McCain is currently being vetted by Joe Biden to become a new UN ambassador. Here’s what you need to know about Cindy, wife to John and mom to Meghan McCain.

The McCain in the news isn’t Meghan this time. Cindy McCain, 66, is reportedly being considered for a UN ambassadorship by President Joe Biden, which would bring her to Rome. Cindy is currently undergoing vetting to become the next US ambassador to the UN World Food Programme, a highly coveted position, according to sources who spoke to Politico. As she awaits the end of the vetting process and potentially becomes the Biden administration’s first Republican appointee, here’s what else you need to know about Cindy:

She Is John McCain’s Widow

Cindy met husband John McCain in 1979 at a reception in Honolulu, Hawaii. The future Arizona senator was then a US Navy liaison officer to the United States Senate, while she was on the island for a family vacation. The two were actually introduced by current First Lady Jill Biden! Their relationship began while he was still married to first wife Carol McCain. After their divorce was finalized in 1980, John and Cindy got married just a few months later.

She took a major role in her husband’s various political campaigns, going door to door for him during his first Senate run, in 1982, and was by his side during his presidential runs in 2000 and 2008. The couple had four children together: Jack, Meghan, James, and Bridget McCain. John unfortunately passed away in 2018 of brain cancer.

She’s Meghan McCain’s Mother

Yes, that Meghan! Cindy’s eldest daughter is the outspoken conservative co-host of The View who frequently butts heads with liberal counterparts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg. Cindy is a frequent guest on the morning talk show, often to talk politics, reminisce about Meghan’s father, and embarrass her to bits. When Meghan shocked her audience by admitting she would vote Democrat in the 2020 election, she cited the Trumps always “making my mom cry” as one of her reasons.

She’s A Businesswoman & Philanthropist

While publicly, Cindy is focused on politics (including turning Arizona blue for Biden in 2020), she’s a wealthy businesswoman more behind the scenes. Cindy is the heiress to Hensley & Co., one of the largest Anheuser-Busch beer distributors in the United States. She inherited majority control and became chair of the company in 2000, after her father passed away.

Cindy is also chair of the McCain Institute for International Leadership board of trustees. The McCain Institute was founded in 2012 and is a think tank in cooperation with the University of Arizona. It’s mission is to “advance leadership based on security, economic opportunity, freedom, and human dignity, in the United States and around the world,” according to their mission statement.

Her Parents Are Jim & Marguerite Hensley

Cindy’s father is Jim Hensley, the wealthy former head of Hensley & Co, and her mother is Marguerite “Smitty” Hensley. Cindy was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and graduated from the University of California (USC) with a Bachelor’s in education and Masters in special education. She has lived in Arizona for the rest of her life, even moving back to her childhood neighborhood after her husband’s death.

She’s Worth An Estimated At $200 Million

The beer distribution industry did Cindy well. Her net worth, as of 2018, was an estimated $200 million — mostly thanks to her Hensley & Co. shares, according to Business Insider. She also inherited money after her husband’s death.

Rudy Giuliani’s son Andrew has announced he intends to run against Andrew Cuomo for governor of NY in 2022. We have five things to know about the political scion.

Andrew Giuliani grew up around politics, with his dad Rudy Giuliani, 76, serving as New York City’s mayor from 1994-2001. The 35-year-old current Newsmax political contributor eventually followed his father into the profession, having worked for former President Donald Trump. Now the Republican has big political aspirations of his own, wanting to challenge embattled incumbent Andrew Cuomo — or whoever is on Democratic ticket in 2022 — for governor of New York. Andrew told the Washington Examiner on Apr. 7, “I plan to run,” setting up a possible challenge against two of New York politics’ biggest names in a Cuomo-Giuliani showdown. We’ve got five things to know about the NY Republican gubernatorial hopeful.

Andrew thinks either he or one of the Trump children could be New York’s next governor

“Outside of anybody named Trump, I think I have the best chance to win and take the state back, and I think there’s an opportunity in 2022 with a wounded Democratic candidate, whether it’s going to be Gov. [Andrew] Cuomo, whether it’s going to be a radical [Attorney General] Letitia James, whether it’s going to be a no-name lieutenant governor, I think there’s a very, very real chance to win,” Andrew told the Examiner. So far, neither Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump or Ivanka Trump have expressed interest in the 2022 election, though Don Jr. floated a run as New York’s governor in 2017.

Andrew worked in former President Trump’s administration

He served in the Trump White House as a director of the Office of Public Liaison. In 2019 Andrew was promoted to Special Assistant to the President. Andrew’s dad Rudy famously served as the 74-year-old POTUS’s personal attorney. “Andrew worked tirelessly for President Trump in the White House while still having a smile on his face every day,” political strategist Boris Epshteyn told the Examiner after Andrew announced his run, adding, “I know that he was specifically focused on issues vital to New Yorkers.”

Andrew has never won an elected office and has little political experience, but is very close to Donald Trump

He entered the Trump White House as an appointee with no political experience. In a Nov. 18, 2019 article in The Atlantic titled “What does Rudy Giuliani’s son do?” Rudy told the author it “wasn’t the usual ‘hire my kid’ situation. He’s known the president since he was a baby. Now, did he know him in the first place because he was the mayor’s son? Sure, but they also had a relationship independent of me.” A former senior White House official called Andrew’s position a “a nepotism job” to the publication. According to two former White House officials who were close with Giuliani, “Trump has long been a father figure to his personal lawyer’s son,” the magazine wrote about Trump and Andrew’s close relationship.

Andrew’s sister Caroline was vocal in telling people to vote for Joe Biden over Trump in the 2020 presidential election

In an Oct. 15, 2020 Vanity Fair op ed, the film producer called herself “multiverses apart, politically and otherwise,” from her dad Rudy and that “I may not be able to change my father’s mind, but together, we can vote this toxic administration out of office,” saying that Trump’s politics were “cruel and selfish.” Caroline added that, “The only way to end this nightmare is to vote. There is hope on the horizon, but we’ll only grasp it if we elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

Andrew is a longtime golf aficionado, playing at the pro level

He lettered in golf all four years in high school and his team won New Jersey’s State title during Andrew’s junior year. He played golf while attending Duke University and turned pro in 2009, playing professional golf for the next seven years. Andrew stuck with it as a career until 2016, when he also worked as a sales intern at a boutique investment bank. His biggest win came in August 2009 when he took first place in the 94th Metropolitan Open. Andrew has been a frequent golfing companion of Donald Trump since his teenage years.

The officer killed at the Capitol on April 2 has been identified as Billy Evans, an 18-year member of the Capitol Police. Here’s what you need to know about Evans, and his tragic death.

The fallen police officer killed after a man rammed his car into a barricade at the US Capitol has been identified as William “Billy” Evans. Evans had been a member of the Capitol PD for 18 years, Acting US Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman wrote in a statement announcing his death. Here’s what you need to know about Officer Evans and the situation surrounding his death.

1. Evans Was Part Of The Capitol’s First Responder’s Unit

“It is with profound sadness that I share the news of the passing of Officer William ‘Billy’ Evans this afternoon from injuries he sustained following an attack at the North Barricade by a lone assailant,” Chief Pittman wrote in an April 2 statement. “Officer Evans had been a member of the United States Capitol Police for 18 years. He began his USCP service on March 7, 2003, and was a member of the Capitol Division’s First Responder’s Unit. Please keep Officer Evans and his family in your thoughts and prayers.”

2. Evans Died After A Man Crashed His Car Into A Capitol Barricade

Evans was killed and another, unnamed officer was injured after a man rammed his car into a security barrier. It’s unclear at this time the extent of the other officers injuries; the driver, identified as Noah Green, was shot and killed by police (see below). “I just ask that the public continue to keep U.S. Capitol police and their families in your prayers. This has been an extremely difficult time for U.S. Capitol police after the events of Jan. 6, and now the events that have occurred here today,” Pittman said. Robert Contee, acting chief of the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, said that the incident “does not appear to be terrorism related.”

3. The Capitol Went On Lockdown During The Incident

Much like during the riot by Trump supporters that occurred at the Capitol nearly three months earlier, the complex went on lockdown as police investigated the crash. Because lawmakers are on spring recess this week, many were at home at not in the building during the 1:00pm ET attack. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ordered for flags to be flown at half-staff after hearing of Evans’ death, calling him “a martyr for our democracy.” Said Pelosi, “May it be a comfort to the family of Officer Evans that so many mourn with them and pray for them at this sad time.”

4. President Biden Mourned Evans In A Statement

Jill and I were heartbroken to learn of the violent attack at a security checkpoint on the U.S. Capitol grounds, which killed Officer William Evans of the U.S. Capitol Police, and left a fellow officer fighting for his life,” President Joe Biden wrote in an April 2 statement. “We send our heartfelt condolences to Officer Evans’ family, and everyone grieving his loss. We know what a difficult time this has been for the Capitol, everyone who works there, and those who protect it.”

Biden agreed with Pelosi and ordered the White House flags to be lowered to half-staff. “I want to express the nation’s gratitude to the Capitol Police, the National Guard Immediate Response Force, and others who quickly responded to this attack,” he wrote. “As we mourn the loss of yet another courageous Capitol Police officer, I have ordered that the White House flags be lowered to half-mast.”

5. The Suspect Was Shot & Killed By Police

Noah Green was identified as the alleged assailant at the Capitol. The 25-year-old from Indiana reportedly had a knife on his person as the time of the attack. Green died from injuries sustained after being shot by Capitol police. The driver was shot after jumping out of the car with a knife in hand and “failing to respond to verbal commands,” according to Pittman. She added that the suspect was “lunging” at officers when he was shot. He was taken to a hospital and died “a short time” later.

Martin Short made a surprise appearance as Kamala Harris’ husband Doug Emhoff on the Maya Rudolph hosted episode of ‘SNL.’

Maya Rudolph, 48, couldn’t host SNL without playing Vice-President Kamala Harris! While hosting on March 27, the long time cast member reprised the role alongside the one-and-only Martin Short, who played Kamala’s lawyer husband Doug Emhoff. “My step baby daddy — get out here sexy,” Maya’s Kamala said directly to the camera after a brief Passover message. Martin’s Doug bashfully walked out, clearly not as much a lover of the spotlight as his wife@

“I’m just too shy! I’m just a shy entertainment lawyer,” he said. “I just want you to know — listen to me girl. I support you,” he then said, as he began slow dancing with her. The Passover Seder was full of surprise guests as Ted Cruz, Joe Biden, Ella Emhoff and Marjorie Taylor-Greene all waltzed in. Ted attempted to show respect by bringing over cupcakes with an Israeli flag and pigs in a blanket. “I started at hte bottom now I’m here…I’m never been to a Jewish dinner,” Aidy Bryant‘s Ted reasoned, as Maya’s Kamala informed her that they can’t have pork or bread on Passover.

Chloe Fineman’s Ella then turned the room into her own runway. “Shalom to the children. Am I breaking your eyes? Good…I’m serving looks,” she declared. “Dad, all this is going on my mood board as it’s a vibe,” she added before Joe Biden arrived. “I got a Passover surprise for ya’ll! It’s my dog Major — he’s back from being re-trained. All better now, aren’t you Major. He’s a sweet pooch!” he said as the dog roamed around the room. Unfortunately for Doug, ‘Major’ had other ideas as he jumped Martin’s Doug and attacked him! The rest of the party didn’t seem to notice but Martin’s doug recovered just fine. “Sweetie, I’m worried this unity Seder is pulling everyone apart,” Maya told him when they were alone, as Martin’s Doug exclaimed, “I want you! I want your lips!” before placing a big kiss on her. Hilarious!

Maya’s role as Kamala has been a smash hit with audiences, even earning her an Emmy award last September — her first win ever from the academy. “It’s certainly put a smile on my face this week to be so acknowledged,” she said in the virtual press room after winning, “But I felt that way about the nominations to be honest…I’m not really looking a gift horse in the mouth these days. I’m really grateful for any moment when we can stop and reflect and honor and celebrate each other,” she added. She was particularly honored for a sketch during Eddie Murphy‘s episode in Dec. 2019.

The Bridesmaids actress was a staple at Studio 8H from 2000 to 2007, but has continued to appear over the years in sketches as a surprise guest. “I love going to the show. Any excuse I can get, I love,” she also said after her Emmy win. “I just didn’t really anticipate traveling during a pandemic, but if there’s anyone that can work it out I’m sure [showrunner] Lorne [Michaels] has some sort of invisible helicopter that can get me there,” she joked to the press, adding that she wanted to be on SNL ever since she was a kid. “I can’t believe that I got to work there, and I can’t believe that it’s my family still,” she gushed. This season, she also appeared in sketches playing the Statue of Liberty and Aunt Jemima.

Kamala never fails to bring the laughs with her on-point take on Kamala, but one sketch in particular got major accolades last year: the show impressively pulled up copying the real Kamala’s stunning white suit just hours after she was named the first-ever female VP. Maya’s dupe on the Carolina Herrera ensemble was impressive, leaving audiences wondering how the show pulled off the feat in just 85 minutes (including the silky pussy bow blouse). “By 9 p.m. we had pulled all the ‘research’ photos together and started looking through our stock to see if there was anything that could work,” costume designer said to Pop Sugar. “Every store in the city had been closed for hours. There was no way to shop this look anywhere, except in our back rooms,” explaining they recut a double breasted soon found backstage. “I work with the most incredible tailors in the world,” he also said.

Chrissy Teigen said her Twitter fans have ‘been her world’ but that it was ‘time to say goodbye’ before deleting her account.

Chrissy Teigen is saying goodbye to Twitter! The 35-year-old confessed the social media platform “no longer served” her “positively” on Wednesday, March 24 — then deleted her verified account. “Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends,” she wrote.

She posted a long thread then deactivated shortly after. pic.twitter.com/FFsGDfw9TC

“But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something,” the Cravings author went on. “I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I’m just not. My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn’t sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as!” she explained. “I encourage you to know and never forget that your words matter. No matter what you see, what that person portrays, or your intention. For years I have taken so many small, 2-follower count punches that at this point, I am honestly deeply bruised,” she also wrote.

“I have made my mistakes, throughout years and in front of hundreds of thousands, and been held accountable for them. I’ve learned an incredible amount here…God I have said f—– up s— and killed myself over it as much as you killed me. But one thing I haven’t learned is how to block out the negativity,” she concluded with a “<3.” After her heartbreaking miscarriage last fall, Chrissy also confirmed she was taking a “break” from Twitter.

While Chrissy has become known for her online humor — particularly hilarious tweets — she has also had her fair share of drama on social media. She was notoriously blocked from President Donald Trump‘s account after calling him out (and was later unblocked from the @POTUS account when Joe Biden was elected), but has also had feuds with Piers Morgan and food writer Alison Roman, who is the author of NYT best seller Nothing Fancy & Dining In.

Alison seemingly blasted Chrissy for having “people running a content farm for her” and launching a Target line in June 2020, leading Chrissy to clap back. “This is a huge bummer and hit me hard,” Chrissy responded. “I have made her recipes for years now, bought the cookbooks, supported her on social and praised her in interviews. I even signed on to executive produce the very show she talks about doing in this article.” At the time, the wife of John Legend also took her account private.

Chrissy Teigen joked about returning to ‘her roots’ while dressed as a Hooters waitress, and the company hilariously asked if she wanted her job back.

Chrissy Teigen has revealed she used to be a Hooters waitress, as she dusted off her old short shorts and tank top for a themed birthday party. The 35-year-old model turned cookbook author shared a snap of herself rocking the iconic uniform as she threw her stylist Alana Van Deraa a 28th birthday party at her home with husband John Legend, 42. “back to my roots. was a hostess at the hoots! the shorts, they have changed!!!!” she captioned a clip of herself posing in the mirror, wearing tiny orange shorts and a white tank top.

The chain restaurant’s official IG account commented on the snap, writing, “Just say the word and you’ve got your job back.” Other fans joked about just how short her pants were. Girl! Did those shorts buy you dinner first? Because they are getting INTIMATE.” Chrissy catered the party with the restaurant’s hot wings and a big Hooters cake, as she arranged an elaborate balloon display featuring orange, white and silver balloons. “everyone here are like total losers except you guys, you guys seem super cool !!!!” she captioned another snap, which showed her and her mini-me daughter Luna posing in front of the balloons.

One fan joked, “Glad you can post this quality content now that POTUS is off the feed,” referencing Joe Biden, 78, unfollowing the model on social media so she didn’t feel bad about posting racy content. Chrissy was blocked from the @potus Twitter account while Donald Trump, 74, was in office, and initially asked Biden to unblock her after he was sworn in on Jan. 20. Nevertheless, she subsequently wrote, “I have tweeted a handful of times since my treasured @POTUS following. In order for me to flourish as me, I must ask you to please lord unfollow me. I love you!!! It’s not you it’s me!!!!” Almost immediately after Chrissy shared her tweet, the president’s Twitter account unfollowed her.

While appearing on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show,’ First Lady Jill Biden revealed that she indeed watched the steamy ‘Bridgerton’ scene where Daphne and the Duke consummated their marriage.

Lady Whistledown can put this down in her newsletter: First Lady Jill Biden watched the steamy scene between Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor) and the Duke of Hastings (played by Regé-Jean Page) on Bridgerton. Season one of the hit Netflix series, which revolves around Daphne and the Duke’s love story in 19th-century Britain, came up during a game on the Feb. 25 episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show. Host Kelly Clarkson read out a series of words and phrases and Jill had to say the first thing that came to mind.

That time I asked @FLOTUS about what comes to her mind when she hears the word… #Bridgerton! #FLOTUSonKELLY pic.twitter.com/TFB6AAst9P

— Kelly Clarkson (@kellyclarkson) February 25, 2021

When Kelly read out “Bridgerton,” though, Jill’s mind didn’t immediately travel to that NSFW scene between Daphne and Simon. “Um costumes, romance,” Joe Biden‘s wife immediately said. This drew a chuckle out of Kelly, who was thinking of a scene that was indeed romantic…but where costumes came off.

“We’re so different, my first would’ve been different…,” Kelly said, laughing. Jill quickly caught on and said while laughing, “Okay I know what episode you’re talking about!” Kelly then clarified that they were giggling over episode five ([SPOILER ALERT]: this is the episode where Daphne and Simon quickly tie the knot and later have sex for the very first time).

The Duke of Hastings (played by Regé-Jean Page) and Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor) in Bridgerton. [NBC/Everett Collection]Jill and Kelly’s chat about Bridgerton‘s steamy scene came in good timing, because the show’s intimacy coordinator recently did a headline-making interview about how the risqué scenes in the show were actually choreographed! The coordinator, Lizzy Talbot, also revealed that the famous oral pleasure scene in the show was filmed on “day one” of shooting.

“The very first scene, day one, we were doing a scene of female sexual pleasure in a gentlemen’s club that didn’t allow women in until 1980. It was, like, ‘Oh, I see what you’re up to, Shondaland!’ It was very clear that from the outset this was going to be viewed from the female perspective,” Lizzy told The Sunday Times in an interview published on Feb. 26.

Bridgerton premiered on Christmas day in 2020, and the series — which is executive produced by Shonda Rhimes — was met with much fan fare. Fans are now anxiously awaiting the second season of the show, which Shonda tweeted in January will be “coming soon.”

Donald Trump’s Weird Eating Habits Revealed From Diet Coke Rituals To Sealed Ketchup & Tootsie Rolls

Donald Trump has long been known for his unhealthy eating choices. But now his dining out habits are being revealed, and some of his practices are just plain bizarre.

Former President Donald Trump‘s deep love of Diet Coke and fast food is a well known fact. But when he was POTUS, the 74-year-old had a fine dining ritual for those four years whenever he headed to the upscale BLT Prime restaurant inside the Trump D.C. Hotel. There was even a Standard Operating Procedure manual that staff had to follow whenever Trump came in, which has been obtained by the Washingtonian. It revealed that table 72 of the eatery was always on constant reserve for when Trump decided to eat there.

Even though Trump refused to wear face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic, he apparently was a germaphobe while dining out. When he arrived at BLT Prime, the POTUS was “discreetly” given a mini bottle of Purell hand sanitizer. He also demanded that his Diet Coke choices be presented in a certain way and the pouring involved seven steps. It began with the waiter asking, “Good (time of day) Mr. President. Would you like your Diet Coke with or without ice?” The publication reports that “A polished tray with chilled bottles and highball glasses was already prepared for either response.”

Some of former POTUS Donald Trump’s rather odd fine dining habits have been revealed. Photo credit: AP.

“The beverage had to be opened in front of the germaphobe commander in chief, ‘never beforehand.’ The server was to hold a longneck-bottle opener by the lower third of the handle in one hand and the Diet Coke, also by the lower third, in the other. Once poured, the drink had to be placed at the President’s right-hand side. ‘Repeat until POTUS departs,” the instructions reportedly continued.

According to the S.O.P. document, Trump always had the same order: “Shrimp cocktail, well-done steak, and fries (plus sometimes apple pie or chocolate cake for dessert). Popovers — make it a double for the President — had to be served within two minutes and the crustaceans ‘immediately.’” Trump’s germaphobe habits came into play again, as the server’s instruction manual advised that they “open mini glass bottles of Heinz ketchup in front of Trump, taking care to ensure he could hear the seal make the ‘pop” sound,’” according to the Washingtonian.

Perhaps the most unusual aspect of the instructions was the amount of candy and snacks that had to be on hand for when the president dined at BLT Prime. It was required that  “A tray of junk food needed to be available for every Trump visit: Lay’s potato chips (specifically, sour cream and onion), Milky Way, Snickers, Nature Valley Granola Bars, Tic Tacs, gummy bears, Chips Ahoy, Oreos, Nutter Butters, Tootsie Rolls, chocolate-covered raisins, and Pop-Secret,” according to the site. As if he couldn’t get those in the White House as well?!

Trump’s love of Diet Coke was so great that he had a red button on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office that when pressed, the soda would be delivered by a butler. U.K’s Time Radio Chief Political Commentator Tom Newton Dunn pointed it out in a tweet showing photos of freshly inaugurated President Joe Biden at the Resolute Desk on Jan. 20, 2021 compared to Trump’s previous setup.

“President Biden has removed the Diet Coke button. When @ShippersUnbound and I interviewed Donald Trump in 2019, we became fascinated by what the little red button did. Eventually Trump pressed it, and a butler swiftly brought in a Diet Coke on a silver platter. It’s gone now,” Dunn shared, stunning the world that Trump actually had a Diet Coke button on his desk!

Trump’s love of fast food has has also been well well documented. His first wife Ivana Trump claimed that Donald’s greatest “weakness is the Big Mac” from McDonald’s. During a Jan. 2019 White House visit by the newly victorious the NCAA football champion Clemson Tigers football squad, Trump had McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s items laid out on expensive platters for the players as their dinner. While the visit did occur during an ongoing government shutdown over his border wall funding demands, Trump told reporters that “I would think that’s their favorite food,” when discussing his cheap and greasy dinner selection for the elite athletes, as he himself loved the stuff.

Hillary Clinton managed to troll Donald Trump with just one simple emoji on February 17, in reaction to his Atlantic City hotel and casino being bulldozed.

Hillary Clinton used a waving-hand emoji to say goodbye to The Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, which was demolished in New Jersey on Wednesday morning. She shaded the former president on Twitter in a reply to a video of the wreckage, via Bloomberg. While the well-known emoji is typically used to say “hello” or “goodbye,” it’s obvious that Hillary’s use of the icon symbolized a grinning farewell to Donald’s since-destroyed property.

Hillary’s disdain for Donald, 74, is well-documented, especially during their respective presidential runs for the White House in 2016. Ahead of Trump losing the 2020 presidential election to President Joe Biden, Hillary, 73, made it clear that she would do anything in her power to “retire” Donald as leader of the free world.

“But to be serious, the number one priority for our country and world is retiring Trump, and, as I always have, I will do whatever I can to support our nominee,” she tweeted in January 2020. In November, Hillary kept that same energy when she told Amy Schumer in a Zoom interview, “I’m spending most of my time trying to do everything I can to retire [Trump], and to send him back to the golf course full-time.”

On April 28, it came as no surprise when the former New York Senator formally endorsed Biden on Twitter. “Wish we had @JoeBiden‘s leadership in the Oval Office right now,” she wrote, noting that “Americans deserve a president who will manage the COVID-19 crisis with the compassion, competence, and respect for science we need to save lives and revive the economy.”

Hillary’s hard work, along with many others on the campaign trail in support of then-Vice President Biden paid off. On November 7, the Trump-era in the Oval Office was finally over.

In a statement following his victory, Biden, 78, shared, “I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and Vice President-elect [Kamala] Harris. In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America. With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation,” he said, declaring, “It’s time for America to unite. And to heal. We are the United States of America. And there’s nothing we can’t do, if we do it together.”

Former FLOTUS Melania Trump is reportedly upset after seeing the warm reception Dr. Jill Biden has received in her short time in the White House that she never had.

Melania Trump left Washington, DC, behind on January 20 both physically and mentally. The former FLOTUS, 50, who had the worst public approval ratings of any first lady in modern history, has spent her time post-White House at the spa while husband Donald Trump focuses on his second impeachment trial, a source with knowledge of her schedule told CNN. It doesn’t seem like that will change anytime soon.

“She goes to the spa, has lunch, goes to the spa (again) and has dinner with Donald on the patio,” the source at Mar-a-Lago said. “Rinse and repeat. Every day.” It was clear that Trump had checked out in her last weeks in the White House, only being seen in public a handful of times. Unhappy with how his presidency ended — and the way it affected her — Trump has allegedly been “bitter and chilly” toward her husband. Especially because her successor, Dr. Jill Biden, has received a warm welcome by the public.

Trump’s most “fervent ire” was seeing Dr. Biden settle into the East Wing with ease. Within two weeks, she had over a dozen staffers happily working for her; in the last weeks of her husband’s administration, Trump’s staff was dropping out in droves. Shortly before Joe Biden‘s inauguration, a report surfaced claiming that Trump never reached out to Dr. Biden to facilitate an East Wing transition or welcome her to the White House — a tradition for most, if not all, first ladies. Trump reportedly did leave a note for Dr. Biden in the Executive Residence, but the contents of the letter weren’t publicized.

Former President Trump lamented before his Twitter account shut down that his wife never appeared on magazine covers during her four years as presidency. Less than a month after becoming first lady, Dr. Biden graced the cover of PEOPLE with her husband, the new president, and was featured in an article for Parents magazine. She also recorded a televised message with her husband that aired before Super Bowl LV.

Most recently, Twitter praised Dr. Biden’s wholesome and adorable Valentine’s Day decorations at the White House. The new FLOTUS hand-painted giant red hearts with inspirational messages and placed them on the White House lawn. Meanwhile, Trump’s Christmas decorations were mocked for looking like something out of Suspiria. Essentially, their experiences as first ladies already couldn’t be more different.

Dr. Jill Biden shared some early Valentine’s Day ‘joy’ by covering the White House lawn with hearts bearing messages of ‘kindness’ – and she couldn’t wait to show them to her husband, President Joe Biden.

In honor of her first Valentine’s Day as First Lady of the United States, Dr. Jill Biden celebrated on Friday (Feb. 12) with a surprise for her husband, President Joe Biden. Overnight, Dr. Biden, 69, had large red, white, and pink hearts installed on the North Lawn of the White House. These decorations mimicked the candy hearts given out during the holiday by bearing a specific message, like “Compassion” and “Love.” On Friday morning, President Biden, 78, and their two dogs – Champ and Major — joined his wife for a “surprise stroll,” per CNN’s Betsy Klein, where he saw the decorations for himself.

“Valentine’s Day is a big day, Jill’s favorite day,” the president told reporters as he viewed the decorations. When asked why she had the decorations put up, Dr. Biden said she wanted to bring a little holiday cheer. “I just wanted some joy, and I think just, with the pandemic, everybody’s feeling a little down, so it’s just a little joy, a little hope. That’s all.” The display reminded President Biden of a time when he was serving as Vice President to President Barack Obama. “First year…I walked into my office, and every single pane…she had taken the school-kind of paint that kids put on posterboards? She had put a heart that says ‘Joe Loves Jill.’ ”

“None of them said ‘Jill Loves Joe,’ ” joked the president. When asked how they could “extend that love story to the American people who are so down right now,” President Biden said, “Tell them there is hope. There is hope. They just have to stay strong.” That message was echoed by the words Dr. Biden had on her decorations. “Healing. Courage.  Love. Compassion. Gratitude. Peace. Amor. Strength. Kindness. Family. Unity. Love, Jill,” she posted to the official FLOTUS Instagram.

“The First Lady is known for her sense of humor, love of surprises, and celebrating traditions, especially with her family,” the office of the First Lady said in a statement, per NBC News. “Valentine’s Day has always been one of her favorite holidays. Sending messages of healing, unity, hope, and compassion, this is her Valentine to the country.”

The heartfelt display is sure to earn Dr. Biden some more kudos from her fans – and possibly aggravate the former First Lady, Melania Trump. Though Melania’s taste when it came to White House decor often resulted in mockery – and she famously dissed the Christmas decorations in a secret recording shared by her ex BFF, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff she at least made it seem like she put forth some effort when it came to the holidays. Since leaving the White House, Melania has reportedly felt a “most fervent ire” in watching Dr. Jill take to the First Lady role with ease and get universal praise while doing it.

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s new long hair was front and center in a gorgeous photo taken from her mom’s ‘British Vogue’ shoot.

As Shiloh Jolie-Pitt grows up, she continues to have a style all her own. The 14-year-old was once known for keeping the blonde locks she inherited from dad Brad Pitt clipped short. Now, she’s trying out longer hair like her sisters, Zahara and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt. Shiloh’s long hair was shown from behind in a sweet photo featured in mom Angelina Jolie‘s British Vogue shoot. The photo features Shiloh and her sisters, plus brother Knox, watching the 2020 election results with their mother. See the photo HERE.

While Shiloh now has long hair, you can see in the photo that she’s keeping it tied back in a casual ponytail. While the photo was taken in November, fans first got a good look at the new ‘do while the teen was out and about with Angelina and Zahara in January. The ladies indulged in a quick shopping trip in Los Angeles, where Shiloh rocked her high ponytail, denim shorts, a black hoodie, and Converse hi-tops. As they walked around LA, it was clear that she’s now just as tall — maybe taller — than her mother.

The British Vogue photo is absolutely wholesome. The Jolie-Pitt kids all perch on furniture in their mom’s living room while CBS News blares on the TV above the bookcase. Though none of the four kids are old enough to vote, they look enraptured while waiting to see who would win on November 3 — Donald Trump or Joe Biden. Angelina spoke about her love for her six kids — she’s also mom to sons Maddox and Pax Jolie-Pitt — and their unique style in the in-depth feature.

“I couldn’t force anything on anybody, which is part of the fun. They are all very different,” the Oscar winner gushed, adding that she thinks they’re “very” cool. “I was best friends with my mom. I loved having babies, but I love sitting up at night and talking to my kids. I like the teenage years. I like the older years. I love hanging out with them,” she said.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen stepped out for some afternoon family time, and the singer was seen carrying little Luna on his shoulders.

John Legend loves being a girl dad! The 42-year-old singer-songwriter was seen carrying his four-year-old daughter Luna on his shoulders while out with his family on January 29. He was joined by wife Chrissy Teigen, her mother Vilailuck and their two-year-old son Miles for the afternoon outing in Beverly Hills. The La La Land star cut a handsome figure in blue pants, a red leather jacket, white sneakers, and a black and red sweater. His baby girl Luna was all smiles as she rocked a pink tulle skirt and a matching pink top. The little fashionista proved she’s already taking after her mom, as she donned a pair of ballet tight and brown combat boots.

Chrissy looked ultra chic as she rocked a pair of white stilettos, which she paired with a long, black blazer, a black cropped top, and asymmetrical jeans which were cinched at the ankle. Her brunette tresses were styled into tight cornrows and she accessorized with layered gold necklaces, and bangles on her wrist. The cookbook author also carried a black leather handbag, as her mini-me son walked behind her wearing a Gucci sweater and black jeans. What a little fashionista!

It comes just one week after Chrissy shared video from Washington D.C., where John performed at Joe Biden‘s televised inaugural evening event Celebrating America. However, she got a little carried away by showing her talented hubby’s performance setting at his dress rehearsal, which she technically wasn’t allowed to do. It seems no one told Chrissy that the details of the event and it’s setting were supposed to remain a secret until the Jan. 20 prime time inaugural special!

The cookbook author said the view was “amazing” as she showed the Washington Monument lit up in the distance, and also shared a photo of a military band onstage, while John stood in a long coat in front of the band. The mother of two was so moved by it that she wrote “John! I’m going to cry” in the tweet along with the video.
