Update: Twenty-five-year-old Kazakh Olympic figure skater Denis Ten dies in fatal stabbing. According to RT.com, the young skater lost three liters of blood after getting into a heated altercation with two robbers. The men were attempting to steal the mirrors off of Ten’s car. There were attempts to revive the Ten, but it was too late. Denis Ten passed away in Kazakhstan in hospital on Thursday. Many are devastated by the loss of the young skater, and rightly so. His passing at so young an age is tragic. The loss of such a talent is felt by all of us. The International Skating Union openly discussed the loss on Twitter, stating that the organization “is deeply saddened by the news from media in Kazakhstan announcing the passing of Figure Skater Denis Ten. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Denis’ family, friends and fans across the world.”
Denis Ten’s Figure Skating Career
The first Kazakh skater to win an Olympic medal, Ten took third place at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. The skater also had the honor of winning silver in the 2013 World Figure Skating Championship, as well as the bronze in 2015. Due to injuries, Ten needed time to recover but was present to compete in 2018’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
As season 3 of VH1’s Hit the Floor preps for its debut this May, we chatted with the man behind the character of Terrence Wall, the one and only Robert Christopher Riley, to get the inside scoop on his acting journey, some of his favorite things, and even some words of wisdom.
Cliché: How did your acting journey begin? Robert Riley: It started when I was an undergrad at Lehigh University. I wasn’t necessarily going to be an actor—I went to school to be an accountant and I played football. During my senior year, the theater department was putting on a production of Raisin in the Sun and I just so happened to be in Intro to Acting that semester because I thought it would be a fun, easy A. To be 100% honest with you, they asked me to audition for the play because they needed more black actors, since the school was predominantly white. I said “no” a bunch of times because it wasn’t what I did, but I inevitably said yes because I felt an obligation to the minority community. I did it for that reason at first, but then I grew to really enjoy it. Since you never expected to be an actor, what would you have been doing instead?
I probably would have inevitably just gone into business and been the ‘cool guy’ in the office that did all kinds of crazy shit outside the office—that guy that always had something random to do like, “Hey guys, come see me do stand-up.” But I teach, so I would probably be a teacher. I’m a pretty sensitive person, which lends itself to being a pretty caring person, so that, coupled with a little intelligence and determination, makes for a really awesome teacher. I’ve had great teachers, coaches, and mentors that are responsible for where I am today, so I would be doing more of that stuff than I am today, and I probably wouldn’t be taking my shirt off for money. So you were born and raised in Brooklyn, but your parents are from Trinidad (mother) and Barbados (father). If you had to pick one of these three places to live, which would you choose?
Oh man, my favorite place to live? Well, I’ve spent the most time in Brooklyn, so I would probably go with Brooklyn. However, there is a large part of me that thinks that I could find a very nice quiet place to live in Trinidad and just kind of live out the rest of my days, whenever that time comes.
Do you have a celebrity crush?
This really is a tough one because most of the time I forget people’s names and I don’t want to say anyone random. However, when I was a kid, I was in love with Mariah Carey. I used to say if she was to walk into the back of the church when I was getting married, the wedding was off! But then that stopped right around Glitter. After Glitter, it was a wrap; I was done. What is the greatest lesson in life you’ve learned thus far?
That you can’t do this by yourself. No matter who you think you are, you didn’t do it by yourself, so there’s no point in even saying it. Ever. When you’re about to say you did it by yourself, just stop for a second and think of someone who helped you at some point, even if someone just held the door open for you that day.
As an added treat, for those of you who didn’t know, Riley also does his fair share of dabbling in photography and we got an exclusive sneak peak at the site, The Fresh Perspective, before the official launch! Riley is letting his fans in on the action with previews on Instagram @thefreshperspectiv. Be sure to check it out!

Join us— and the Beyhive in welcoming the birth of a prince, as Beyoncé shares photo of Kelly Rowland’s son Titan Jewell Weatherspoon.
Weighing in at 7.5 pounds on November 4 at 1:30 p.m the couple, Kelly Rowland and Tim Weatherspoon, welcomed a baby boy into the world and Beyoncé couldn’t be more excited to finally meet her nephew. Queen Bey took to instagram and shared a touching photo expressing her happiness and love for the newborn baby boy.
Beyoncé wasn’t the only one that gushed over Rowland being a new mama, Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams told E! News “Kelly’s going to be an amazing mom. She’s always been great with children. She loves babysitting, she loves buying stuff for kids. She has such a big heart. She’s a giver and a nurturing person and, really, thats what motherhood is all about.”
Rowland joins the plethora of new moms and soon-to-be moms in Hollywood from Mila Kunis, Eva Mendes, Blake Lively to Jessica Biel, but I’m sure with supermoms Beyoncé, Solange Knowles and Lala Anthony by her side, baby Titan is in great hands and surrounded so much love and talent.
Wonder what his calling will be…
Congrats Kelly! Lance GrossBeyonce
Divorce? Whats that? Crazy in love is more like it!
That’s right, Beyonce and Jay Z renew vows amid months of speculation and divorce rumors— the Carter reign continues! A source tells People Magazine that “They did have major problems, but they worked it out and they’ve renewed their vows.”
Not only are the two stronger than before and putting those rumors of a split to rest, but they are also reportedly in search of a new home. Where, might you ask? In the City of Love aka La Ville-Lumuire (City of Light), but love is more appropriate here— Paris of course!
They’ve been spotted in and out of Paris for weeks now and according to People, they’ve explored properties in areas near Seine, the gated community known as “Millionaire’s Row” and Elysee Place.
Finally, some positivity in a sea of negative Nancys. Let’s take a moment to applaud the Beyhive for their undying affection for Beyonce and the rest of the Carter clan,

How far is too far to catch a picture of or even a selfie with your favorite celebrity?
Well, one bus driver took her chance to bask in the moment with her favorite comedian and the Kevin Hart fan gets suspended after snapping a selfie while on the clock.
During her rounds for National Rental Cars in Los Angeles, Ganesha Douglas, stopped her bus when she spotted comedian Kevin Hart. Starstruck, Douglas got out and managed to snap a selfie with Hart, apologized to her passengers and went on about her way.
Seems harmless? Well, National Rental Cars was less than thrilled about the actions of the driver and Douglas tells Inside Edition that she’s been “suspended indefinitely, without pay” and her union rep says “she will probably be fired.”
Was the selfie worth it? When asked if she regretted the incident she replied, “Now, I do.”
Hart is known for continuously showing love to his fans on his social media sites and interacting with them and when this story broke he did not shy away in the shadows. Hart took to social media and posted a video asking National Rental Cars to “give [Douglas] a pass” because, in his words, “If I would have seen me, I would have taken a selfie with me too,” and begs them “to have some compassion.”
I'm asking "National Rental Car" to please give Ganesha Douglas a pass. She has learned from her mistake. She nor I intended for this to happen. #LoveMyFans
Whatever happens now is in the hands of the company, but does Douglas deserve to lose her job for the incident or are the repercussions for her actions too harsh?

First things first, I’m— wait, she’s married?
It’s a surprise to everyone that Iggy Azalea’s Husband wants a divorce, but it’s safer to say it’s an even bigger surprise because no one got the memo that the rapping Australian bombshell was even married— not even Azalea herself! Main reason being her highly publicized relationship with basketball player, Nick Young, for the past year.
It’s not cheating if she’s denying she was ever married, right?
I think we already all know, but just to clarify. I'm NOT married. Feel free to check the PUBLIC marriage records…
According to TMZ Azalea’s ex, Maurice Williams aka Hefe Wine, claims that the pair were in a common law marriage and “”agreed to be married, holding themselves out as man and wife and began residing together in the State of Texas on or around September, 2008.”
When TMZ catches up with Azalea in the airport, she makes it clear that this incident is a complete sham. She even took to Twitter with a mini rant to set the record straight:
TMZ just asked me at the airport if I think my "common law marriage" claim is a money grab. Yes, but it's TMZs money his grabbing. Lol.
Tattoo my name on you so I know it’s real— and then get it covered up because we’re no longer together…
There is officially no denying that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are over and done with after the stunts these two pulled this week. In case you missed it, heres a play by play before Nick Cannon covers up Mariah tattoo:
Carey, during a concert in Tokyo, changed the lyrics to Billie Holiday’s ‘Don’t Explain’ from “And I know you cheat/right or wrong, it don’t matter” to what sounds like “I know you cheated motherf***er.” Take a listen to the audio obtained by TMZ, what do you think?
Was this in fact a dig at Nick Cannon? This fiery side of Carey surfaces amid divorce rumors, which were confirmed only by Cannon in late August, and now there’s alleged cheating. Don’t be fooled, Carey isn’t the only on making waves in the water, Cannon seems to be fighting fire with fire. Earlier this week, Cannon bid adieu to his ode to Mariah on his back— her name tattooed in giant letters; now covered up with an even larger tattoo of Jesus on the cross.
It’s clear that the two are definitely headed for divorce. After only six weeks of dating before they tied the knot, many were skeptical when this relationship began. Six years and two kids later, twins Moroccan (Roc) and Monore (Roe), it looks like this love story has come to an end.

With months of witnessing break-ups and divorces everywhere from your own inner circles to Hollywood romances, it’s time to shine some light on those that are keeping things a bit more in tact.
Let’s switch gears and take a moment to appreciate those in relationships— apologies to those flying solo, your day will soon come, but this might be something to consider doing with your significant other in the future. Put your relationship to the test with The Shoe Game
If you haven’t come across a video of The Shoe Game in action via the “likes” of the ladies in your Facebook newsfeed, allow me to catch you up to speed with just a taste of how this game is played and puts a little twist on something familiar to The Newlywed Game. Here’s an example of how things go down:
Seems simple enough, right? You each hold on of your own shoes and one of your significant other’s shoes and answer the questions asked by raising the shoe corresponding to the person that is most likely to fit that description— prepare yourself for “oooh”, “awww” and lots of laughter from the audience witnessing the inner details of your relationship.
Some suggested questions to ask are:
1. you first met, who made the first move?
2. Who is the better driver?
3. Who is smarter?
4. Who starts the argument?
5. Who is first to say “I’m sorry?”
6. Who wears the pants in your relationship?
7. Who is messier?
8. Who has the smelliest feet?
And of course always ending with— “Right now, who do you love more than anyone in the world?”
So, how well do you and your significant other know each other?

The wait is over!
If you didn’t know, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher welcomed a baby girl into the world on September 30th, but kept the baby’s name under wraps for a couple days, leaving us all dying with anticipation, but they’re finally giving us the details!— well, kind of.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher reveal baby name:
Kutcher revealed the name on his site (Aplus.com) Thursday evening:
“Mila and I would like to welcome Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher to the world. May your life be filled with wonder, love, laughter, health, happiness, curiosity, and privacy. Can you guess which one is ours, or does it really matter? All babies are cute. -Ashton”
Along with this endearing statement, he posted several photos of babies— without sharing which one is in fact Miss Wyatt Isabelle, can you guess which one is the princess to the Kutcher throne?
While you do that, let’s take a moment and stroll down memory lane and reminisce on the love story that is the future Mr. and Mrs. Kutcher– starting with them as Jackie and Kelso on That 70s Show:
Kutcher, once married to Demi Moore and Kunis never thinking she’d never get married, are very much in love and it shows.
“I never wanted to get married. From the age of 12, I prepared my parents for no marriage. Then things changed– I found the love of my life. Now my theory on weddings is: Don’t invite anyone. Do it privately and secretly. My parents are okay with that. They’re just excited that I said yes.” (US Magazine)
Now the two share their first child together and are preparing for their nuptials— hopefully it won’t be too much of a secret, until then it’ll be interesting to see which parent Wyatt takes after. One thing is for sure, she’ll definitely have a sense of humor.

Let’s take a moment to congratulate former Jersey Shore cast member and proud mom in welcoming Giovanna Marie LaValle to the world! Yes, that’s right Nicole Polizzi aka Snooki gives birth to a beautiful baby girl on September 26, 2014, exactly two years and one month apart from first child, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle born on August 26, 2012.
So happy to let you know we had our beautiful daughter this morning Giovanna Marie LaValle. 6.7 lbs, full head of black hair & perfect
Just yesterday revealing on Twitter and on her blog the struggles of trying to jump start her labor and feeling like she’s “going to be pregnant forever“, Polizzi is now the proud mom of two children with fiancé Jionni LaValle.
Polizzi gushes over the arrival of her baby girl with a quick post stating, “my angel is finally here.” No photos yet as the world waits to lay their eyes on the newest member of the LaValle clan, but judging from her handsome big brother Lorenzo, surely she’ll be a beauty. Polizzi isn’t the only one excited for Giovanna’s homecoming, she’s received an overwhelming amount of love from fans, family and of course best friend Jenni Farley aka JWOWW (whose daughter, Meilani, now has a playmate, can you say best friends?)
Another one bites the dust. Hollywood marriages just don’t seem to be lasting these days. After Kris and Bruce Jenner filing for divorce and then Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey following behind them, who would have known that one of Rap’s favorite couples would have been the next to call it quits, as Amber Rose files for divorce from Wiz Khalifa. Just two weeks ago Rose posted a photo from their wedding on Instagram wishing Khalifa a happy birthday with the caption:
“Happy 27th Birthday @mistercap I’ll love u forever…. Hope this year is an amazing one for u sweetheart ❤️”
However, there seems to be more trouble in paradise than the two let on. The model filed for divorce on September 22 based on documents obtained by TMZ and cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the dissolution of marriage, but there are swirling rumors that cheating is the culprit for this marriage ending after only one year.
Reliving that moment over and over and over……smh
— Amber Rose (@DaRealAmberRose) September 23, 2014
The cheating rumors are swirling on both sides. Amber has been accused of being unfaithful too. Twitter followers came swarming after the news of the split between Rose and Khalifa surfaced and Nick Cannon became the center of attention. With the divorce being filed shortly after Cannon becoming the manager for Rose it was rumored the two were hooking up, but an inside source tells E! News that the couple (Rose and Khalifa) has “had marital issues for some time now.”
Amber took to Twitter to address the rumors and set the story straight on her behalf:
Please stop with the fake stories. I would never ever ever cheat on my husband in a million years I think u guys know this…..
— Amber Rose (@DaRealAmberRose) September 25, 2014
Unfortunately my now ex husband can’t say the same….
— Amber Rose (@DaRealAmberRose) September 25, 2014
I’m devastated and crushed but my main focus is Sebastian. Thank u for all the support in this difficult time.
— Amber Rose (@DaRealAmberRose) September 25, 2014
With the divorce papers in place, Rose is putting all of her energy into moving on and gaining full custody of their son, Sebastian. As for Khalifa, he has yet to make any comments regarding cheating rumors or the divorce, but he has been fairly active on Twitter since the news of the divorce surfaced.
