Eva Mendes Took a Break From Social Media Thanks to Her and Ryan Gosling's Daughter

by

How Ryan Gosling Changed Eva Mendes’ Mind on Having Kids

Eva Mendes has stepped back from social media, and it’s all because of a comment from her and partner Ryan Gosling‘s daughter.

The actress, who shares daughters Esmeralda, 6 and Amada, 4, with her Place Beyond the Pines co-star, shared a post from the @LatinxParenting Twitter account on her Instagram. The post encourages parents to allow their kids to call them out because “kids can be so fiercely aligned with their value that they will take nothing less than the respect they deserve.”

The post continues, “They will take no BS. Not even from you. Congratulations, you raised an empowered child.” 

Eva, apparently, related to the tweet. She wrote in the caption, “Thank you to @latinxparenting for this important reminder. I haven’t posted lately because my little one told me I was on the phone too much.”

The Hitch star added, “I could tell she was taking it personally. And she’s a kid, of course she’d take it personally. They take things personally unless we go out of our way to make it clear to them it’s not personal.”

She shared that the two “had [a] good talk,” and that she “apologized” and promised to be more “mindful.”

“I realized that just because I’m always home with them doesn’t mean I’m always present,” she concluded.

For Eva, posting on social media has always been challenging as she chooses not to focus her content on her family life. In April 2020, she shared a photo of a painting to Instagram, along with the caption, “During these times, I’m so confused about what to post so I’m going to post things that move me in hopes that they move you as well.

Ben Affleck’s Pants Nearly Fall Down As He Juggles Coffee & Packages After Ana De Armas Split

January 24, 2021 12:50PM EST

Ben Affleck turned heads on Jan. 23 when he grabbed a bunch of packages outside his Los Angeles home while also sipping his beloved Dunkin’ iced coffee and trying to keep his falling pants up.

Ben Affleck, 48, tried to avoid another mishap on the morning of Jan. 23 when he had his hands full! The actor was spotted picking up a bunch of packages outside his Los Angeles home while also balancing an iced coffee from Dunkin’ on top of them and seemingly trying to keep his slipping pants from falling completely down. He also impressively even took a sip from the coffee’s straw as his Old Navy boxer briefs peeked through over his black denim pants as he bent down.

The Good Will Hunting star was also wearing a black puffer jacket with the hood over his head as he braved the L.A. rain during the funny moment and gave a slight smile to nearby photographers. His unshaven face was on full display as well and if we didn’t know better, we wouldn’t have guessed he was a mega star!

Ben’s latest balancing act comes after photos of him almost dropping a delivered Dunkin’ order made the rounds on Dec. 30. The epic snapshots show him wearing a gray Boston-themed T-shirt as he bends down to pick up a cup holder holding what appears to be three large iced coffees and a container of Dunkin’s famous Munchkins. The coffee almost drops from the holder as he lifts it up in his doorway before going back inside.

by

Published 15 hours ago

Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff have announced plans to reside at Blair House, the presidential guesthouse, while repairs are completed at the Naval Observatory, the official VP residence.

Harris purchased a condo in a luxury high-rise just north of Washington Circle, however, the heightened security caused added inconveniences for residents in the building, Politico writes.

Blair House, comprising 120 rooms, is a complex of four connected 19th-century townhouses located across Pennsylvania Ave. from the Eisenhower Executive Office Building and just steps away from the White House. It serves as the president’s guest house for visiting dignitaries and elected officials.

The home is where President Joe Biden spent the night before his inauguration. Former President Harry Truman lived at Blair House while the White House underwent renovations post-World War II.

The Democratic National Committee has officially elected Jaime Harrison of South Carolina as chairman.

At a virtual post-inauguration meeting on Thursday (January 21), Harrison was voted in and joined by vice chairs Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth and U.S. Rep. Filemon Vela Jr. of Texas.

“We are all a part of a movement that you all started, and we are nowhere near done,” Harrison said on Thursday, according to the Associated Press. He also thanked the party’s outgoing leaders. “I have no intention of letting victory turn into complacency… There is important work ahead of us.”

Harrison, who launched an election campaign that came closer than many believed to unseat incumbent South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham, succeeds Tom Perez as DNC Chair. He was a key liaison with state party leaders with whom Perez endured sometimes rocky relationships.

“I am confident that Jaime will … take us to even higher heights,” Perez said during Thursday’s meeting. 

Harrison received 407 out of 411 possible votes.

Kate Middleton's Longer Hair Will Have You Canceling Your Next Cut

by

Kate Middleton Honors Frontline Workers on 39th Birthday

In quarantine, the hair is longer—even Kate Middleton‘s. 

As everyone knows a year into the coronavirus pandemic, a haircut is hard to come by these days. With social distancing protocols in effect and infections rampant, getting to a hair salon has hardly been a priority—and that’s when an appointment is even available. As you may be taking a hard look at the state of your split ends these days, the Duchess of Cambridge has certainly made a case for letting your locks grow out. 

While hairstylists are probably shaking their heads right now (don’t worry, we know we need regular trims), Middleton’s recent appearance suddenly has us reconsidering any recent dreams of dramatic snips. The royal mom of three recently spoke virtually with a group of nurses working during the pandemic and highlighted their kind and courageous work.

During the appearance, the Internet couldn’t help but notice the duchess’ long, straight hair, a subtle change from her typically wavier style. 

Whether it’s a result of less haircuts over the past 12 months or Middleton simply changing up her mane, it certainly caught eagle-eyed fans’ attention. 

“Duchess of Cambridge you look absolutely stunning in straight hair, you should make straight hair your signature hair style,” one viewer commented. “I love your straight hair I’m obsessed.”

Of course, as royals enthusiasts well know, Middleton has tried out an array of ‘dos over the years, whether it be long and bouncy, pinned up in a chignon or pushed back with a hair accessory.

Gabourey Sidibe Describes Her Battle With Bulimia

by

Published 12 hours ago

Gabourey Sidibe is opening up about her struggles with mental health and says they began at a young age.

The Empire star joined Taraji P. Henson on her Facebook Watch show Peace of Mind with Taraji, and says she first developed depression growing up, which snowballed into anxiety and eventually Bulimia.

“I was so embarrassed, and I hated crying so much, I hated it,” Sidibe told Henson and co-host Tracie Jenkins on Monday’s episode (January 18).

Sidibe says that while in college she stopped eating for days at a time, and what she did eat she would then throw up. She says the eating disorder was a “button” that would stop her from crying.

“And on top of that, people were like, ‘You’re looking good.’ So I’m like, why would I stop? Like, this is dope, in a way,” she said, calling it a “self-defense mechanism.”

Sidibe continued: “That’s what bulimia was for me. It wasn’t about losing weight, it wasn’t about controlling my appetite. It truly was about how it stopped me from crying.”

Any control Sidibe thought she did have was just a failed mask for her problems.

“It felt like I was controlling my emotions — I was not, I was out of control. I was getting worse,” she said. “Being depressed is one thing, if you add an eating disorder on top of that, that’s a whole other monster you have to fight.”
