Former San Francisco 49er Jason Hairston has died. He was 47.
Hairston’s outdoor sporting company KUIU confirmed the news on Twitter Wednesday writing, “We are shocked and saddened to announce the tragic passing of KUIU founder Jason Hairston.”.
The company later revealed Hairston “took his own life” and “was found dead at his home in Dixon, CA on Sept. 4, 2018.” Hairston is survived by his wife Kirstyn and their two children.
Hairston, originally from southern California, spent his early years playing football. He attended the University of California, Davis and was named a starting linebacker for UC Davis Aggies football in 1993, according to KUIU’s website.
In 1995, Hairston was signed as a free agent to the San Francisco 49ers. He was traded to the Denver Broncos a year later and retired in 1996.
In 216, Hairston revealed he was suffering from Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy symptoms. The cognitive brain disease is commonly found in athletes and those in the military you have suffered repetitive hits to the head.
“I played linebacker, and the way I played the game, I led with my head. I played the way they tell us not to play now,” Hairston told CNBC in 2016. “I have all the symptoms of CTE.”
CTE can only be confirmed after a sufferer has died.
Following his football career, Hairston founded hunting clothing company KUIU in 2010. Hairston was featured on Forbes last year after KUIU did $50 million in sales.
He was also close friends with Donald Trump Jr. and the two went on a hunting trip in Canada just days before Hairston’s death.
Trump Jr. honored his late friend on Instagram by sharing a series of photos from their trip.

Jason, I have no words. I will always remember our adventures and sharing a campfire with you. They will be some of my fondest experiences in the outdoors.

For a moment during Thursday night’s NFL opener, people stopped fighting over whether NFL players should stand for the national anthem and focused instead on Boyz II Men.
The R&B trio stole the show when they took the field in Philadelphia sending fans into a frenzy.
Staying true to their roots, Boyz II Men — who are all Philadelphia natives — performed a harmonious rendition of the national anthem before kickoff.
As they sang side-by-side in their Eagles jerseys, the internet went crazy for their impressive soulful harmonizing.
— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) September 7, 2018
Twitter exploded with some fans claiming it was the best rendition of all-time, while others questioned exactly how the group was able to make the song sound “sexy.”
One Twitter user wrote: “Boyz II Men is the ONLY group of singers I know that turned the national anthem into a slow jam.”
One user even congratulated the group for having “an entire nation applauding you right now.”
Boyz II Men > everybody else who has ever sang the National Anthem.
— Kayce Smith (@KayceSmith) September 7, 2018
how did Boyz II Men make the national anthem sound sexy?

— Elijah (@elijahbihh) September 7, 2018
Hey @BoyzIIMen, an entire nation is applauding you right now. Beautiful rendition of the anthem of our nation. One of the most glorious presentations of it I've ever heard, gentlemen.
— Michael Berry (@MichaelBerrySho) September 7, 2018
Other Twitter users waited until the midway through the game to confirm that the performance was, indeed, the “best thing about this game tonight.”
There was expected to be widespread protests amongst the player but no one was seen kneeling.
Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett did, however, opt to sit before the end of the national anthem.
Catches ruled as drops
Missed extra points
Best thing about this game tonight has been Boyz II Men's National Anthem
— Houston Astros 87-53 (@chrissoilltho) September 7, 2018
As noted by Yahoo! Sports, Bennett was spotted lingering around his team’s bench before sitting down. Although the performance was broadcasted on national television, Bennett sitting down in protest was not.
During the Eagles’ preseason, Bennett was known to remain in the locker room during the anthem, while fellow teammate Malcolm Jenkins protested in his own way by raising a fist.
However, on Thursday night, Jenkins — along with the rest of the Philadelphia Eagles — did not show any signs of protest and were seen standing for the anthem, the site reports.
Last season, many players chose to kneel during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and the treatment of African American people in this country particularly by the police force and the government.

President Trump weighed in on the protests in September 2017 with a series of tweets and stated that NFL owners should fire players who do not stand for the anthem.
During a rally speech in Alabama, Trump stated, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out, you’re fired.’ ”
In May, NFL owners approved rules that force players to stand on the sideline or remain in the locker room during the anthem. If players do not comply with the new policy, they would be subject to league fines and/or individual punishment by their team.
Serena Williams’ daughter is a fashionista just like her mama!
On Thursday, the 36-year-old tennis star shared a photo of her 12-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia wearing a tiny version of the black tulle dress created for her byOff-Whit designer Virgil Abloh for her first match at the U.S. Open last week.
“Did Momma win?” Williams captioned the adorable shot of Olympia, who can also be seen pushing a pink toy stroller.
The sweet post comes just a few hours after Williams advanced to the finals after defeating Anastasija Sevastova on Thursday.
In addition to her dress, Olympia has also gifted a pair of Nike X Off-White Blazers sneakers from the collection inspired by Williams. The pint-sized sneakers were made especially for the famous baby.

“Thank you @virgilabloh @nike @off_white,” Williams wrote.
Olympia turned one on Sunday. Williams, who previously revealed she wouldn’t be celebrating her daughter’s birthday for religious reasons, shared a variety of videos from her pregnancy on Instagram over the weekend.
In the first few clips, Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian prepared for Olympia’s arrival.

Since giving birth, Williams has been open about her struggles with motherhood and balancing that with her tennis career.
After losing the Ladies’ Single Final at Wimbledon in July to German player Angelique Kerber, Williams gave an emotional speech.
“It was such an amazing tournament for me. I was really hoping to get this far,” Williams said.
“It’s obviously disappointing, but I can’t be disappointed. I have so much to look forward to. I’m literally just getting started.”
“To all the moms out there, I was playing for you today and I tried.”
Condoms aren’t just for sex. They also make for excellent medical gloves and balloon animals.
Or, if you’re in Cuba, you can use them to ferment wine and fish. Reuters notes that because there are a shortage of basic goods in Cuba, locals have started using condoms to do everything.
“We can’t allow clients to leave upset that we couldn’t do something because we lacked the tools so instead we look for alternatives,” said Sandra Hernandez, a stylist at a Havana hairdressers, who uses them as hairbands.
Thanks to U.S. trade sanctions and a centralized economy, Cuban markets don’t have everyday goods that we in America take for granted. However, they have an overabundance of condoms, something else Americans take for granted given the number of pregnancies. Cuba is big on promoting sexual health, probably because they don’t want to be overpopulated.
A box of three condoms costs just one Cuban peso.
The best use of condoms comes in the form of fermenting wine. A winemaker said, “It really increases the alcohol percentage and improves the process of fermentation, as well as that of clarification.
You hear that, American winemakers? Cap your wine with a condom so we can get drunk faster.
Here’s a list of everything Cubans use condoms for and things that Americans can use condoms for:
*Gloves and socks
*Terrible tasting food
*Seriously, preventing kids. I’m tired of seeing these families who have too many kids that they can’t take care of. Wear a condom.
If you think about it, condoms are one of the most diverse inventions ever. It’s amazing people only use them once for an average of 2 minutes and then dispose of them. Stop be wasteful, America.

Congratulations Sixers fans, your national nightmare is over.
Ben Simmons has officially moved on from Kendall Jenner.
The two made headlines earlier this summer when they were spotted hanging out and going on dates together. It never seemed all that serious as Jenner was also going out with Gigi Hadid’s younger brother, but anytime Jenner is linked to a sports stars, fans of that team should start to worry. It’s possible that Jenner ruined Simmons’ offseason workouts with how much attention she requires, but he was recently spotted working out with LeBron James. So he should be just fine.
A source told Hollywood Life that Jenner is the one who ended the relationship.
“Kendall is the one that pumped the breaks on things with her and Ben and it all comes down to her being afraid of getting hurt, or worse, him breaking her heart. She started to really like him and that brought up a lot of fears for her.
“A big part of what made her put things on ice with Ben was the trip to Mexico. They had such a good time but when they left Ben had to go straight to Australia it was hard on her, she missed him. Feeling needy is the worst thing for Kendall so her way of coping was to start talking to other guys again. She’s still talking and texting with Ben, she’ll definitely see him again, but she’s not going to make him the only one. In her mind it’s either play or get played and she’s just not willing to let that happen to her.”
“Play or get played” is probably not the mindset you want to have if you’re looking for a serious relationship.
Don’t feel too bad for Simmons. On top of being a rich NBA player, he’s already moved on to someone new.
Simmons has been dropping into the Instagram comments of model Ashley Moore.
The two recently started following each other on Instagram, a clear sign that things are going down in DMs.
Moore previously dated NBA player Devin Booker. Hopefully, Simmons shooting his shot on Instagram goes better than him shooting his shot on the court.

Celebrities have sex. It’s an undeniable truth. But not every celebrity has sex in front of each other.
Speaking to Yahoo Be, Lily Allen revealed that she once caught James Blunt having sex in her hotel room.
“I once walked in on somebody having sex with James Blunt in the foyer of my hotel room at Chateau Marmont. “Not that it’s shameful to have sex with James Blunt. It was just that it happened to be happening in the foyer of my hotel room.”
What a humble brag this is. “The foyer of my hotel room.” Bet if you stayed at a Motel 6 he would not have taken this girl back to your room. Lily only has herself to blame.
Allen didn’t reveal who Blunt was having sex with or when it happened, but we can conclude it had to have happened before 2014. Blunt married Sofia Wellesley in 2014 and I doubt Allen would be outing Blunt as a cheater, unless there’s some serious bad blood between the two.
The two shared a manager ten years ago, which would at least expand how Blunt got a key to her hotel room.
Chances are it probably happened during the peak of “You’re Beautiful” when every woman on the planet wanted to have sex with James Blunt. Even I wanted to have sex with the man when that song hit the radio.
Allen has a new book coming out titled My Thoughts Exactly. She’s already given fans a snippet, revealing in an Instagram post that she slept with female escorts around the time “Sheezus” dropped. Allen was married to Sam Cooper at the time.
View this post on Instagram
Sooo, in my book ‘My Thoughts Exactly’ (out on 20th Sept) I detail some stuff from my dark days, around the Sheezus era. I slept with female escorts when I was on tour, cause I was lost and lonely and looking for something. I’m not proud, but I’m not ashamed. I don’t do it anymore. The Mail are gonna run with the story tomorrow cause someone leaked it, and they’re bound to make sound worse than it was. Just wanted to give you Er, the ‘heads up’ ! #LINKINBIO

Have you ever just wanted to tap someone on the shoulder and tell them to take the L and move on with their life? Someone needs to do this for Asia Argento. Since the public found out she paid off a young actor over an alleged sexual assault, she’s done everything she can to avoid taking responsibility, and she’s had one of the most spectacular public meltdowns this side of Harvey Weinstein.
Argento has been publicly denying anything happened, and she’s been claiming that Anthony Bourdain, her late partner who isn’t here to defend himself, is the one who paid off Jimmy Bennett, the young man she seemingly admitted to having had sex with when he was 17, which is under the age of consent in California where the act occurred.
Argento’s latest strategy is to claim that Bennett raped her. At least she did claim he was asking for it. I mean, she kind of did. The thing is, her whole “I froze when he made a move on me” thing isn’t actually a defense for statutory rape; even if the minor is the one who instigates the sexual act, the adult has the legal duty to stop it.
I don’t think anyone actually believes Bennett raped Asia Argento, and it casts a shadow over her accusations against Weinstein at this point. Now, Weinstein has been accused of a lot of terrible things by a lot of people who aren’t Asia Argento, so this doesn’t mean much for Weinstein, but I don’t think Argento has any credibility at all anymore.
Unfortunately for Argento, it turns out that being called a rapist by someone who allegedly molested you doesn’t sit well with most people, Jimmy Bennett included. TMZ has reported that Bennett has filed a report with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, and unlike the recent cases the DA couldn’t pursue, Argento’s alleged actions didn’t happen long enough ago for the statute of limitations to save her from prosecution.

Farewell to Season 10 of Real Housewives of New York: Everything We Learned From This Reality TV MasterpieceThis week, we bid farewell to a legendary season of television. The Real Housewives of New York finished off their 10th season last night with the third installation of the reunion,...
Party of Five is heading back to TV!
Freeform announced the news Thursday, revealing the pilot order “will be a modern reimagining of the groundbreaking original series.”
Party of Five first aired in 1994 and followed the lives of the five Salinger siblings, whose parents died in a car accident at the hands of a drunk driver. It ended after six seasons in 2000.
“Twenty-five years ago, we imagined a story about five kids navigating the world after the untimely death of their parents,” executive producers Amy Lippman and Christoper Keyser said in a statement.
Lippman and Keyser went on to explain that the reboot will focus more on current political issues in America.
“Today, stories of families being separated, children having to raise themselves in the wake of their parents’ deportations, don’t require any imagination; they are everywhere,” Lippman and Keyser said, seemingly in reference to President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy.
“This new iteration of Party of Five isn’t a retread of the original; it’s a whole new look at kids trying to parent each other in the wake of circumstances beyond their control, yet learning a similar lesson: that families persist no matter how great the obstacles,” Lippman and Keyser continued.
The Party of Five reboot will follow the lives of five Buendías siblings after their parents are deported to Mexico.
“From the moment we heard that Amy and Chris were updating their iconic series with this timely and powerful twist, we knew we had to have this pilot. We’re honored to be the home for the next, brilliant iteration of their vision,” said Freeform’s Executive Vice President of Programming and Development, Karey Burke.
The pilot date has not yet been released and it is unclear whether or not Campbell, Chabert, Wolf or Fox will have roles on the series.
In addition to executive producing, Lippman and Keyser wrote the pilot along with Castle’s Michal Zebede. Rodrigo Garcia is set to direct.
A 64-year-old Maryland woman is dead after her newly adopted pit bull mauled her to death on Monday in her backyard, police say.
A family member found Robin Conway dead in her Columbia yard around 7:20 p.m. “with the dog standing over her,” according to a statement by the Howard County Police Department. The family member tied the dog to a fence post and called 911.
“She loved animals, all kinds of animals. She was in love with that dog,” Conway’s sister, Susan LeClair, told WFTS. “And she’s in love with animals.”
Family members told the station that they initially thought nothing of it when Conway took the dog out for a walk that evening. However, they became concerned when she didn’t return by sundown. So, they checked the backyard.
“The dog apparently went after her,” LeClair said of her sister. “She was dead.”RELATED VIDEO: After Okla. Woman Loses an Arm in Attack by Four Pit Bulls, Police Investigate Dogs’ Owner
Authorities responded to the scene to find Conway in the yard with “significant injuries.”
“The dog, still attached to the post, was barking and lunging on the leash and had to be subdued by animal control officers and ultimately euthanized,” police said in the statement.
The state medical examiner will determine Conway’s cause of death and a necropsy will be performed to determine if the dog had rabies, police continued.
Despite the pit bull killing her sister, LeClair said the family does not blame the breed and emplored others not to do the same.
“It was obviously something wrong with this dog, but that’s not to be construed as all pit bulls are bad and I know Robin wouldn’t want that,” LeClair told the station.
Authorities said they know very little about the dog’s adoption, but said in the statement that the pit bull was adopted from out of state.
In 1972, Burt Reynolds, who died on Sept. 6 at age 82, agreed to pose completely naked for Helen Gurley Brown’s Cosmopolitan magazine — a move that he has said wasn’t a big deal, despite it turning him into a massive sex symbol.
“I didn’t know there was going to be a commotion about it,” he told Steve Harvey in March, 2018. “It wasn’t a big deal to me. I said, “I’ll do it, but I’ll have to have my hands…in front of me.”
Reynolds, then making a joke about the size of his manhood, added, “And I have very small hands.”
During the same month, Reynolds, who later battled an addiction to painkillers in 2009, told Conan O’Brien that he was really drunk for the shoot.
“I was so drunk,” he said. “Oh I was plastered. I started drinking very early in the morning, and I went out and they said, ‘In the first scene you’ll be doing such and such.’ I said, ‘You said I’d just be lying on the couch…I’m not taking my clothes off. I’ll come in, throw the robe off, and you roll.’ And he did.”
He also revealed in 2017 during an appearance on Yahoo!’s The Katie Couric Interview that he “shuddered” when he looked back on the infamous shoot.
“I mean what an a–,” he continued. “What an egomaniac that would do something like that.”
RELATED VIDEO: Burt Reynolds Causes a Stir at Today with Comment About Hoda Kotb’s Lips
When Couric pressed Reynolds to explain why he regretted the shoot so much, he added, “I didn’t have to do that. But people thought you had to do it because it, you know, caused a little fuss and all that and I enjoyed that, but I didn’t enjoy doing it.”
In his 1994 memoir, My Life, Reynolds said that it was strange how women reacted to him after the centerfold was published.
“Standing ovations turned into burlesque show hoots and catcalls,” he wrote. “They cared more about my pubes than they did the play.”
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has made many changes to their annual Oscar awards over the years, but one they proposed adding this year backfired in spectacular fashion. You see, in recent years, the Academy has made a desperate stab at relevancy, chiefly by increasing the number of Best Picture nominees in hopes that its voting bloc would nominate more commercially successful films.
This approach hasn’t worked all that well. In fact, any time the Academy attempts to do something to broaden their commercial appeal, it ends up being rightly and roundly rejected by the general public. You see, people either love the Oscars or they don’t, and no lineup of Best Picture nominees is going to swindle Joe Sixpack in to tuning in to the show.
Nevertheless, the Academy pressed on with a new idea this year that involved adding a new category called Best Popular Film. This seemed, to them anyway, like a great way to honor movies like Black Panther or The Incredibles 2 that made a ton of money but wouldn’t make the cut for Best Picture in your average cinema-going year.
It was a stupid idea and now the Academy has decided to table it for the time being. In a press release, Academy CEO Dawn Hudson states…
“There has been a wide range of reactions to the introduction of a new award, and we recognize the need for further discussion with our members. We have made changes to the Oscars over the years — including this year — and we will continue to evolve while also respecting the incredible legacy of the last 90 years.”
Sure. We get it, you goofed and now you’ve gotta fix the goof. Word to the wise, shelve this idea permanently. Nothing is going to entice the average moviegoer into watching the Oscars, short of the prospect of them receiving an award for watching.
Models are everywhere! Everywhere you turn, there’s another god damned model like we’re living in some sort of post-modern Hitchcock/Andy Warhol collaboration. Models love to congregate in New York, of course, as it’s the center of the fashion world of America. I mean, there or South Bend. I think New York might have the edge though.
So who was out and about this week? Why, only the biggest names in modeling, all of them on the prowl and looking for their next victim. Kendall Jenner is stalking. Bella Hadid stalks too. They’re all out there stalking and prowling and making sure the world firmly fixes its attention on them.
There’s also some models I’ve never heard of in the mix as well. Frida Aasen, Maria Borges, Tanya Kizko, and Tarah Rodgers. Never heard of a one of them, though I’m sure I’ve written about at least one of them before. My memory’s garbage these days.
Anyway, enjoy all the hot models and be sure to watch out for large congregations of models. That usually means someone’s gonna end up getting curb stomped by a really nice Louboutin heel.

I get the notion of Shane Black wanting to help out a troubled friend in this industry. Robert Downey, Jr. wouldn’t be Iron Man right now had guys like Black and Mel Gibson put their reputations on the line to get him work once he got clean. That all happened in the days before social media. If a similar comeback was staged in the social media era, Downey Jr.’s attempted comeback would be shamed out of existence.
I understand why Black would want to try working similar magic with another beleaguered friend—albeit one with a much lower profile—in this day and age. The deck is stacked against such a decision, but he made it anyway, and now it’s come back to bite him on the ass.
Shane Black cast a friend of his named Steven Wilder Striegel in a small role as a catcalling admirer of Olivia Munn in The Predator. According to the Los Angeles Times, Black knew his friend Striegel was a registered sex offender thanks to a run-in with a fourteen year old several years back, and cast him anyway in a role with rather lascivious undertones.
Black defended his decision to cast Striegel in a small part in “The Predator” as a jogger who repeatedly hits on Munn’s character.
“I personally chose to help a friend,” Black said in a written statement to The Times. “I can understand others might disapprove, as his conviction was on a sensitive charge and not to be taken lightly.”
But he said he has long believed that Striegel was “caught up in a bad situation versus something lecherous.”
The studio, acting on behalf of Munn’s request, demanded that Black remove the scene before delivering his cut of the film.
Now, I get that Black is trying to help out a friend here, but this guy’s story sounds like bad news. What’s worse is that Black has been throwing him small roles in all of his recent films including Iron Man 3 and The Nice Guys.
Striegel served six months in jail after pleading guilty to two felonies — risk of injury to a child and enticing a minor by computer. The first role he landed after his release was in Black’s 2013 film, “Iron Man 3.” Three years later, he got another part in one of the filmmaker’s projects, the crime caper “The Nice Guys.” In 2016, Black told GQ that he was planning to produce a heist film “by my friend Steve Wilder.”
I’m not saying that people don’t deserve a second chance, but cast him as a dude who gets killed by the Predator. Don’t cast the registered sex offender as a jogger with a hard-on for Olivia Munn. It’s weird, and it makes you look bad.
It’s also not going to dissuade me from watching this movie. I’m pumped for this one. The Predator opens one week from tonight.
Emily Browning has the kind of cheekbones that rich white women have spent billions trying to attain. They still haven’t quite attained them but, bless their hearts, they are trying. When you see the desired result on Emily it is hard to judge them for willingly transforming into mountain lions. Of course it seems worth the risk when you see the true potential of the human face.
You might think with cheekbones like hers they must be her defining feature, but you would be wrong. She also has lips so full that if I was a TSA agent I would definitely have her pegged as a drug mule. She could probably pack a couple grams of illicit substances in those luscious face pillows. It would seem like a lot of trouble to go through for just a couple grams. And the overhead would really cut into the profit margin. But I still think it would be worth it to thoroughly inspect them.
That is why I would be known as the world’s greatest TSA agent. Nothing would get passed me. I would also be known for having the most complaints made against me for fondling people’s lips.

While Sister Wives daughter Mariah Brown gushes about her move to Chicago, Kody Brown and the sister wives themselves have uprooted their family for a move of their own.
Kody and the sister wives left Vegas to move to Flagstaff, Arizona. They announced the move months ago, but have made some progress since then.
Here is what we know about their big move:
In July, the Browns put out a statement explaining why they were making this drastic change.
"As much as we’ve loved making our home and memories here in Las Vegas," the statement began.
The statement continued: "we are excited to embark on a new adventure in Flagstaff, Arizona."
“We are looking forward to cooler temperatures, the mountain air, scenic views," the statement read.
The statement concluded, adding: "and the slower lifestyle of Flagstaff."
At present, Kody and his wives and their young children have yet to actually move into new, permanent residences.
Don't get us wrong -- they're lviing in Flagstaff. They made the move.
But apparently they're currently living in four rentals, which are scattered throughout Flagstaff, and have also rented a commercial building.
In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Kody joked about the tangled logistical ngihtmare of moving so many people before their new homes are actually built.
"We moved to heaven," he joked. "But we’re living in hell right now."
Once their new residences are ready, however, it looks like they'll be living in paradise.
Kody and the sister wives have spent $820,000 on purchasing their new properties, which will allow them to live in close proximity to each other.
The purchase of the four lots makes for a combined 15 acres of land.
It is also close to downtown Flagstaff.
But they'll have to wait for their new homes to be built. In the mean times, they deal with inconvenience and a little chaos while their lives hang in limbo.
Even before they made their move to Flagstaff, Meri Brown spoke of her excitement alongside a photo of the open sky.
"Anyone who knows me well knows how much I love the mountains, the peace, calm, & serenity that can be found there," Meri began.
Her post continued: "Since moving away from Utah I’ve missed being able to head up to my favorite mountain anytime I want."
"But I’m looking forward to our move to the mountains of Arizona," Meri expressed hopefully.
Meri concluded that she is excited about "the road that’s stretched out ahead of me and the promise it holds."
Robyn Brown snapped a photo of a deer, writing: "I came upon this lovely creature in my backyard. It was an accident that I got so close. I had to snap a picture."
"She just stopped and stared at me for the longest time," Robyn shared. "I think she saw into my soul."
"Ari has been scared of the deer we have been seeing," Robyn continued. "But I explained they were nice and safe."
"Now," Robyn shared. "She loves watching them through the window. 'They are nice happy deer!' she says."
Hopefully we'll get to see a lot of their new experiences when Sister Wives returns on January 4!
If you're a Teen Mom 2 fan, then you're probably aware that the custody battle between Jenelle Evans and Nathan Griffith seems to get uglier by the day.
And if you have even a cursory knowledge of how our legal system works, you also know that it would be wise of Jenelle to refrain from publicly commenting on her relationship with her ex until after the courts have had their say.
But for some reason, Mrs. Evans-Eason is chronically incapable of keeping her mouth shut on the topic of Nathan.
We're used to Jenelle making bad decisions, but the frequency with which she repeats this one idiotic choice borders on astonishing.
Some fans have concluded that Jenelle is "obsessed" with Nathan.
And others insist they know exactly why that is.

Baby Crew has been hitting milestones left and right since his June 21 birth. Over the weekend, the Fixer Upper alums took their newborn son to his first football game, where they couldn’t help sharing photos of the trio taking in the action. In both snapshots, little Crew could be seen peacefully sleeping on his mother’s chest.
“First game day for baby Crew #sicem,” proud mom Joanna captioned a mother-son selfie from the Baylor University game against Abilene Christian on Saturday.
Meanwhile, father of five Chip, 43, simply wrote alongside his family photo, “#Gameday.”

In August, Chip posted a father-son photo of himself and Crew cuddled up close while lounging in a hammock on the family’s Waco, Texas, property. “#thegoodoldays,” he captioned the aww-inspiring snap.
And in July, the new mom of five shared a sweet snapshot of Crew, Chip and the couple’s middle son Duke, 10, all snuggled up together. “Walked into this cuddlefest and my heart almost burst,” Joanna captioned the black-and-white Instagram post, adding a heart-eye emoji.
GQ has a long history of providing top quality talent to the masses, and I am happy to be able to say that they haven’t changed. They are still attracting the boner popping sources that they always have.
It seems like more and more business models are focused on having a gimmick in order to stay relevant. It is getting tiresome. I do not need to know nor care to know who the hottest lefthanded Indian vegetarians are. That is why I like seeing that the closest thing to having a gimmick that GQ has is that their people, by and large, remain attractive.
These guys also stay true to the classics. They do not just toss aside the old guard in order to make room for the ever increasing number of newcomers. I know that it is tempting to keep the faces under 30 years old, but it will give diminishing returns. The people like me who enjoy seeing the faces and bodies of my youth will have to go to other places to see Isla Fisher and Kate Beckinsale. And believe you me, we will find them, and we may never have a reason to come back.

Somewhere in the Hollywood Hills, there’s a woman trying on Kim Kardashian West‘s next outfit.
No, it’s not her assistant, nor is it a fellow member of the KarJenner family. Instead, it’s one of the hand-selected women with a body that’s (somehow) shaped exactly Kardashian West’s, down to the very last measurement.
“There are fit models — we have gotten people who have my exact same measurements — and they try on all the clothes, photograph it, do the fittings for hours every day of all the different Yeezy looks,” explains the star, who is featured in PEOPLE’s annual style issue as one of our best-dressed stars of 2018.
But the luxury setup doesn’t only apply to the Yeezy outfits her husband, Kanye West, designs for her. Kardashian West says she’s had women try on everything she owns in order to plan future outfits.
“At one point I sent over my entire closet to my husband’s office, I had full time security because I was so nervous. But that was just to photograph it with the fit models there and put looks together.”
The process, she says, is simple: “There were all these stylists using my clothes, taking pictures and then sending it to me and then whatever I like I’ll try it on and make sure it looks good on me. They make my life so easy!”
And yes, Kardashian West is aware of the Cher Horowitz vibe of it all. “It’s a modern version of Clueless,” she says.
Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos has become one of the more prolific auteurs of his generation, cranking out a film a year for the last three years: 2016’s The Lobster, last year’s Killing of a Sacred Deer, and now the upcoming The Favourite. This will mark the director’s first English language film without Colin Farrell in a leading role, but he’s brought along some familiar faces.
The fantastic Olivia Colman plays Queen Anne, and she has worked with Lanthimos before—alongside her co-star here, Rachel Weisz—on The Lobster. Emma Stone has not worked with the director before, but she’s still hot off winning an Oscar last year for La La Land, and is getting a lot of buzz for this one, in more ways than one.
Of course, one of the big draws for this flick is Emma’s nude debut, and we have it on good authority that she does indeed go topless in bed with Colman. Lanthimos is notorious for his bizarre nude scenes in films like Dogtooth, so hopefully this flick plays it relatively straight. Nicole Kidman has a super bizarre nude scene in Killing of a Sacred Deer—which is sublimely weird and you should totally check out—where she plays dead for her surgeon husband (Farrell) in bed.
The Favourite should continue his trend of making very strange movies. It opens in North America on November 23.
