Now, former lover Josh, 27, has taken a swipe at Kaz, in the form of some rather awkward Instagram comments.
Beneath a meme, reading: ‘Girls that move on before it’s been three years after a break up,’ Josh penned: ‘Three years? How about three weeks?!’
Kaz sparked speculation of a romance between her and fellow Islander Theo Campbell, 27, when she shared a snap of her posing beside the athlete, who appeared on series three of the show during a holiday to Thailand.
Responding to Josh’s social media dig, the telly star feistily wrote: ‘Ppl move so brave after they’ve blocked you.’
Although Kaz and runner Theo are yet to publicly confirm that they are dating, the pair were photographed looking cosy on a date night earlier this month.
With Kaz in fits of laughter, Theo can be seen planting a kiss on her cheek and wrapping his arm around her, proudly showing off in front of the cameras.
Meanwhile, Josh is currently enjoying a luxury getaway to the Maldives, alongside fellow Love Island cast mates Jack Fowler and Wes Nelson.
Looking totally care free, the social media presenter shared a snapshot of the plush vacation, sporting a pair of swimming trunks and flaunting his abs in front of a palm tree.
Fellow Little Mix star Jesy Nelson took to the comment section to compliment her band mate, writing: ‘ your perfect,’ while Love Island winner Dani Dyer swooned: ‘Ohhhhh.’
Meanwhile, hordes of Leigh-Anne’s loyal fans were quick to praise her for showing off the natural features of her bum, with one commenting: ‘The fact that you chose to not retouch this means the world.
‘Stretch marks are an amazing thing, a sign of growing. They’re absolutely beautiful and I’m sick and tired of society trying to make us believe otherwise.’
Equally as amazed by the candid snap, another follower wrote: ‘Your stretch marks remind me of sea waves and how they cascade beautifully when the move slowly. Your stretch marks are absolutely stunning .’
The Woman Like Me hitmaker recently launched her very own business venture, worlds away from her singing career, when she released her very own swimwear brand.
Since the unveiling of In A Sea Shell, Leigh-Anne has treated fans to a series of stunning bikini snaps, showcasing the swimsuit range.
Sharing a photo as she posed in the desert, standing beside a huge, white horse, the X-Factor winner can be seen showing off her amazing figure in a tiny white two-piece.
Clearly feeling at one with nature, Leigh-Anne captioned the stunning snapshot: ‘I couldn’t get over the beauty of this horse..’
The devastating loss comes after Lisa’s turbulent year of divorce proceedings, following her separation from Ant, 42, after 11 years of marriage.
The pair are allegedly in a deadlock over the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! star’s £62 million fortune, with legal costs of the break up said to have reached £1.5 million.
According to insiders, Lisa is struggling with the stress of the split from the telly host combined with the loss of her father.
A source told The Sun: ‘A lot of people think Lisa is strong, and she is — but she’s had so much to cope with since she and Ant split up.’
They added: ‘There’s been one thing after another and at times she’s felt on her knees. But she’s kept it together and ploughed on.
‘To do all of that whilst knowing your dad is seriously ill and on borrowed time is quite something. It would break most people.’
Since the complicated break up, Ant has gone on to find love with 42-year-old former PA, Anne-Marie Corbett.
Meanwhile, Lisa has hinted that she is holding out hope for a reunion with former hubby Ant, in the form of cryptic Twitter messages.
The beauty guru took to social media last month to ‘like’ the mysterious Tweet that read: ‘People who are meant to be together find their way back, they may take a few detours, but they’re never lost.’
A community activist and spokesperson speaking on behalf Maleah Davis—the missing 4-year-old girl from Houston, Texas—revealed graphic details about what allegedly happened to the child at the hands of her mother’s fiancé.
“Many people did not know that he had dismembered this beautiful baby,” community activist Quanell X told Houston CBS affiliate KHOU, referring to 26-year-old Derion Vence. “There was blood spatter evidence around the drainage area of the house. Why would human body tissue be in the drain system?”
While police haven’t confirmed whether or not Quanell’s statement holds any truth, Vence, who told police that Maleah was randomly abducted by a group of Hispanic men on May 3rd, was arrested Saturday (May 11) and is currently in jail on $1 million bond on suspicion of tampering with evidence.
The “evidence” in this case is a human corpse, though police have not confirmed whether Maleah’s body has been found. Maleah remains missing and hasn’t been seen in nearly two weeks, though at this point, it is believed that she is deceased.
Houston police said blood evidence found in Vence’s apartment was linked to Maleah, and on top of that, Vence was seen on security cameras carrying a laundry basket out of his apartment with his 1-year-old son and a laundry basket with a black trash bag inside.
Houston police added that the laundry basket was found along with a gas can in the trunk of the vehicle that Vence had reported stolen.
Police said two canine officers trained to sniff out the scent of dead bodies were brought to Vence’s car, and both dogs reacted to Vence’s trunk, indicating that they sense human decomposition inside the vehicle.
“Both of the dogs reacted to the trunk of the silver Nissan that the defendant had driven and that the blue laundry basket was recovered from, indicating that the dogs were responding to the scent of human decomposition in the vehicle,” Harris County prosecutor Pat Stayton said, per the Star Tribune.
Police also said they observed drops of blood in the hallway leading to the bathroom of Vence’s apartment and on various surfaces in the bathroom.
Vence told police that on the night of May 3rd, he was on his way to Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas with Maleah and his 1-year-old son to pick up Maleah’s mother, his fiancée, Brittany Bowens.
Vence said he pulled over on the highway to check his tires after hearing a popping noise while driving.
As Vence was checking his vehicle, he claims three Hispanic men driving a 2010 blue Chevrolet pickup truck pulled up, apparently offering to help.
Police said Vence told them he was ambushed by the men, with one of them hitting him across his head, and he lost consciousness.
Vence said the next thing he knew, he woke up on the side of another highway the next day around 6 p.m. on May 4th. He said his son was with him, but Maleah wasn’t, suggesting that the three Hispanic men had kidnapped the girl.
Vence then went to the hospital to seek treatment for his and his son’s “injuries” and reported Maleah missing, while Bowens had another family member to pick her up from the airport when Vence and the kids didn’t arrive on time.
Doubts about Vence’s story quickly arose after police said he changed key details about what happened during Maleah’s alleged kidnapping “multiple times.”
According to the Houston Chronicle, Maleah’s mother, Brittany Bowens, believes Vence became angry after a confrontation he had with her the day before she left on a trip to Massachusetts for her father’s funeral.
According to Bowens’ attorney, Bowens asked Vence about nude pictures he allegedly sent to another person and he “snapped.”
Nipsey Hussle’s first baby mama Tanisha Asghedom was reportedly an emotional wreck Tuesday (May 14) when she appeared in court alongside Nipsey’s sister, Samantha Smith, and his brother, Blacc Sam for a hearing on the guardianship of her and Nipsey’s 10-year-old daughter Emani.
According to TMZ, Tanisha broke down crying when she saw her daughter for the FIRST TIME in what she said was MONTHS.
The courtroom was reportedly cleared for 20 minutes while Tanisha and Emani spent some alone time together.
The hearing was pushed back to Friday, which is when a final decision will be made about who will have primary custody of Emani and the financial support they will receive from Hussle’s estate, which is worth millions.
Nipsey’s sister Samantha filed documents requesting legal guardianship last month because, according to sources close to the family, she believes Tanisha is unable to properly care for her. She was denied temporary guardianship until a court hearing.
Nipsey primarily took care of Emani before he died, but Samantha says she helped raise the 10-year-old as well and in seeking legal guardianship “to ensure the continued stability for Emani and ensure that she will be able to maintain her current and ongoing relationship” with her father’s family.
Nipsey’s brother, Blacc Sam, also filed a declaration in support of Samantha receiving guardianship of their niece.
Sam, meanwhile, is involved in another legal fight to take control of Nipsey’s estate, which includes about $2 million worth of assets.
Eric Holder, Hussle’s suspected killer, pled not guilty to murder charges in April, but he’ll need to find a new lawyer because Chris Darden quit the case after receiving a number of death threats from Hussle’s fans and supporters.
In this ever crowded television landscape, where there are more shows and films than one can watch in a lifetime, it takes a special show to break out of the pack. Each year, dozens of shiny new pilots are launched, hoping to be the next big thing, but most end up cancelled after a handful of episodes. So here comes Freeform’s Motherland: Fort Salem with a bold and bonkers new premise: military witches!
The synopsis for the series reads: “Set in an alternate America where witches ended their persecution over 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the government to fight for their country, Motherland: Fort Salem follows three young women from basic training in combat magic into early deployment. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped, with the more dominant women on the front lines fighting looming terrorist threats that are familiar to our world—but with supernatural tactics and weapons.”
And according to the trailer, some of the witches are queer? Well, shut up and take my money. Freeform president Tom Ascheim said of the series, “We’re so excited to be able to tell this story rich with female empowerment, complex storytelling and an incredibly creative canon … While set in an alternative universe, Motherland: Fort Salem will continue the authentic and issues-driven storylines that our network is known for, and what our audience has come to expect.”
The series was created by Eliot Laurence, who created Claws, so you know this show will be soapy as hell. The series stars Taylor Hickson (Deadly Class), Jessica Sutton (The Kissing Booth), and Amalia Holm (Playground). This wouldn’t be the first time that Freeform has sucked me in with some young adult supernatural teen nonsense. This is the same network that brought us polyamorous killer mermaids in Sirens and hipster emo angels in Shadowhunters. They also strung some us along for nearly a decade with the psuedo-supernatural chicanery of Pretty Little Liars.
Motherland gets props for a fresh, innovative mash-up of supernatural drama and military shows. Maybe it will be like M.A.S.H. but with potions and spells. More likely it will be Charmed with uniforms. Either way, I am 100 percent on board with this show, and will be bringing you more information as the release date gets closer.
What do you think? Will you be tuning in for Motherland?
Pokémon is a cultural phenomenon that I never happened to get into—not because there wasn’t something for me to enjoy, but because I just associated it with the kids in my neighborhood who hated me. I knew of a few characters and understood their significance to the franchise at large, but that was about it. Sure, that’s weird of me, a self-proclaimed nerd, but listen, I like fluffy things, and Pikachu wasn’t exactly fluffy in the original cartoons.
Now, fast-forward to Detective Pikachu, and I would willingly lay down my life for Pikachu and Psyduck. I mean, also Jigglypuff, because all Jigglypuff does is sing her name in the background of a song as a karaoke singer. A delight!
Sure, I’d seen Pokémon the First Movie and knew about this iconic scene where a song plays about brothers while Pikachu slaps Pikachu.
But, other than that, I knew of some characters but couldn’t tell you what they did or why they even existed. So imagine how fun I was at Detective Pikachu. Truly, a movie that will make everyone fall in love with Pokémon. Here’s the thing: seeing pokémon as living creatures just existing, with jobs? Wonderful.
Squirtle is a firefighter, and Pikachu has a fun little hat. Can you blame me for loving this movie? And maybe it’s a fault of mine that I didn’t know anything about Pokémon before, but that’s why we make things like Detective Pikachu. It’s there to get others involved in the stories and for us to fall in love with the characters. And also it helps that they handed me a fluffy Pikachu in a detectives hat who calls everyone “doll” or “dame.”
I mean sure, yeah, it’s a weird thing that I didn’t know that much before, but at least now I want to learn, right? Give me all the Pikachu content, please and thank you!
2019 is hard for a lot of us, but it’s made just a little bit easier when you think about Leslie Knope. Parks and Recreation is the kind of show that, sure, we gave a hard time when it first came out but now brings us a certain kind of joy that can only be expressed through rewatches and talking about it nonstop—but primarily through Leslie Knope.
A character that many would deem annoying, that just shows a lack of understanding of the passion behind what Leslie is trying to do. Played by Amy Poehler, she’s the kind of character who would lay down in front of a car for her friends because she wants them to have the best life, even if she sometimes projects her own happiness onto them.
So, let’s look at some life lessons that Leslie and the citizens of Pawnee have taught us throughout the years.
Finding a friend who loves you and will support you is important.
Ann Perkins walked into a Pawnee city council meeting to complain about the pit next to her house and ended up leaving with a best friend. Portrayed by Rashida Jones, the character served to show us what unconditional love in a friendship could look like. Sure, Leslie and Ann had their fights and had moments when they weren’t there for one another in ways they should be, but they always made sure they knew they loved each other.
Mainly Leslie, who would willingly shower Ann in compliments at any given moments.
Anyone can be a nerd, and that’s okay.
With Parks and Recreation, everyone is a bit nerdy. Whether it’s Ben Wyatt talking about Star Trek: The Next Generation and correcting Ann on her Game of Thrones references or Donna Meagle being involved in every pop culture conversation, the show has a wonderful way of showcasing that all of us are a little bit nerdy.
Sure, it could be anything from pop culture to sports, but there’s something we all love to talk about and geek out over, and that’s okay. Leslie Knope’s favorites are maybe Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and more, but at least we’re all included in some way or another.
We don’t have to be people lovers.
Oh, April Ludgate. A character that could be evil and show no remorse, April serves to be the kind of reminder that you don’t have to be a people person. Animals exist, we can be selective about who we actually want to spend our time with, and sometimes it’s fun to be the kind of person that no one can really figure out.
Finding love is nice, but it helps to find the right person.
Let’s talk about Ben Wyatt. Leslie Knope had some interesting boyfriends throughout the run of Parks and Recreation, and until Ben came along, they didn’t treat her in the best of ways—something that I like to apply to my own life and think “I just need to find my Ben Wyatt.”
A man willing to give up anything and everything for her, Ben Wyatt was always there for Leslie Knope in whatever ways she needed.
Maybe it’s because Ben and Leslie were one of the first couples on television that didn’t compromise themselves to fit their relationship; they just understood each other. Or maybe it’s just that they love each other despite whatever flaws other people see in them. Ben and Leslie are a perfect example of what love can be.
Be cozy, be yourself, and just have fun.
Parks and Recreation is the kind of show that, at the end of the day, tells us to look out for ourselves and find people like Leslie Knope to have in our lives. So, as a Leslie Knope myself, you’re all welcome to my services.
Here is the quote that inspired me to get a tattoo about Parks and Recreation, because, at the end of the day, we all have to remember what really matters.
But most importantly, we have to remember one important thing:
Ugh, this Aladdin movie feels more and more like a punishment the more clips are released to try to create hype for it. In the newest clip, we get a look at the “Prince Ali” song number, which … ugh, you can judge for yourself above.
Look you can do totally animated choreography where anything you can imagine can happen with total freedom
Or you can do actual choreography like in the Broadway show where what’s exciting is real dancers performing live
How is this supposed to compare to either the original or the very dance-heavy Broadway version? Why was Baz Luhrmann not tapped for this production? Are they saving him for the live-action version of Oliver & Company?
It’s unfair to compare a live-action sequence to an animated one. There are things animation can do that you can’t do in real life, but there’s no excuse for not then finding a way to translate the musical number to live-action in a satisfying way. The Broadway Aladdin musical has done that with great success.
What’s most upsetting is the waste of Will Smith’s amazing talent. Smith is a good actor who can sing and dance! Growing up, his music videos that went with his movies were an awesome part of the experience. He seems like he’s been held back in this performance in the scenes that have been released so far.
This video makes up for the Wild Wild West movie, because honestly the soundtrack >>> any single moment of that film.
The Men in Black music video was such a cool tie-in that showed that Will Smith was a genius at marketing his own movies and playing to all his skills. It doesn’t feel like Aladdin gets that. Robin Williams’ version of the Genie is special, and it’ll be forever encased in amber, allowed to be perfect for all time. Will Smith’s Genie shouldn’t be Williams’, and that means changing the musical numbers more to fit Smith’s voice. Even if they’re allowing him to rap, keeping it in the same showtune tempo doesn’t fully work.
But that’s just opinion, man. In the end, despite my biases, I want to give this movie a fair shot when I see it. I’m just concerned that some aspects of this are just not in director Guy Ritchie’s wheelhouse. I think, when it comes to filming the more action-heavy sequences, he will excel, but these musical sequences … that I’m unsure about.
What do you guys think? How is it looking and what are you most concerned about? Honestly, Will Smith will probably be the highlight of this film for me, because he’s a charismatic performer in CGI blue or nah. It’s the leads I’m worried about.
