Bachelor in Paradise?
More like... No Longer a Paradise Because I Just Asked the Woman of My Dreams to Marry Me! In Paradise!
Indeed, while this reality show title would be way too long and would make very little sense in nearly every context, it would apply perfectly at the moment to Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon.
According to People Magazine (and the revealing photo below), Haibon popped the biggest question of his life to Iaconetti on Sunday.
And he did it in a way that was simultaneously romantic, public and very much planned ahead of time:
He proposed while filming Bachelor in Paradise Season 5.
In an image released by ABC, Haibon Haibon got down on one knee on the beach, opened up his ring case and allegedly stunned his bride-to-be, who reacted by placing her hands on her chest and throwing her head back in excitement.
Back in 2015, loyal fans of this reality series may recall, Iaconetti was devastated to be turned down by Haibon after seemingly getting close to him on Season 2 of this same series.
But the stars remained close and Haibon eventually came to the same realization Ashley had before him:
They were soulmates!
"I never felt like it was over between us after Paradise, which is why I said we're still going to be friends," Jared said during a YouTube video of the couple's love story, which they titled "The Story of Us."
"Like, it just didn't feel over," he added in this lengthy and often-mocked piece of footage.
Haibon also admitted in this video that Ashley dating some other dude is what gave him the "kick in the ass" he needed to see what was in front of him this entire time.
Watch the video here:
"Bachelor Nation hasn’t seen so many of the important details that make up our story," the couple says in this video, adding:
"[We] thought there was no better way to explain to the people who have followed our love lives for over three years than by filming our own episode of The Story of Us."
Back during their first run on Bachelor in Paradise, there was chatter that Haibon and Iaconetti had sex, which would have been the first time for the latter enjoying such an experience.
It might explain what has drawn Ashley to Jared with such intensity over the years if this rumor is accurate.
“There’s just this undeniable, magnetic force between the two of us that just is indescribable,” Haibon told People Magazine at the annual Nylon Young Hollywood Party last mont, adding at the time:
And then there was this from Iaconetti, said to Bachelor alum Ben Higgins during iHeartRadio's The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast:
""He is my person. He is my soul mate."
What else ise there to say?
Congrats to the very, very happy couple!
Gigi Hadid may come from money -- but she is all about that hard work!
In fact, her cognizance of her status was a factor in how she treated her first few years as a model. She explains:
"I know I come from privilege, so when I started there was this big guilt of privilege, obviously."
But that guilt drove her to earn everything she got:
"I've always had this big work ethic, because my parents came from nothing and I worked hard to honor them."
She says that kept her eyes open to the struggles of those around her who didn't have such resources:
"There are so many girls who come [from] all over the world and work their arses off and send money home to their families like my mother did, and I wanted to stand next to them backstage and for them to look at me and respect me and to know that it's never about me trying to overshadow or take their place. So when I started out I wanted to prove myself so badly that sometimes I would overwork myself."
Sounds like an admirable way to deal with that situation to us. Tough to say she hasn't worked her way up at this point.
But Gigi says she isn't done working on herself:
"You know that people say I shouldn't be on the runway? I've got a lot better at dealing with that and wanting to better myself. That's my motivation."
What do YOU think of Gigi's words, Perezcious readers?
Thoughtful and inspiring? Or pretentious and pandering??

Fans are always happy to get more Kardashian-West family photos, but some critics don't always like what they see.
North West had a birthday a few weeks ago. She is now 5 years old!!
But when some people saw that Kim had given her a straightened, Ariana Grande-style ponytail, they flipped out.
North West and Penelope Disick look so cute, right?
North is wearing a swimsuit, a robe, and a unicorn horn -- amazing for a birthday party or any other occassion.
But it was North's hair that drew the eyes of fans.
Not only on Kim's Instagram stories, but when she was spotted out and about in public.
Some fans were very distressed to see that Kim had once again seemed to straighten her little girl's hair.
"I hope those are not hair extensions in a four year old!" one Twitter user wrote.
We don't think that informing that person that North turned 5 a few days ago would put them at ease.
(To be clear, we're also not sure what's wrong with a four-year-old doing their hair -- hair extensions aren't, like, tattoos or plastic surgery or whatever)
"I reall hate how the Kardashians keep straightening that poor baby's hair tho," another Twitter user writes.
This one, it seems, objects to the fact that they're messing with her hair at all, regardless of her age.
"North West gonna have heat damage before she's 10 -- before I even knew what straightener was smh."
SMH, of course, is an acronym for smacking my head, an expression of frustration.
There is a racial component to hair and hairstyles.
A lot of hairstyles that just happen to be banned by dress codes and company policies as "unprofessional" also just happen to be easier hairstyles for people with curly hair like North's.
For black people, in other words.
This is why many black people in the US and other countries take great pride in their hair -- because it's part of who they are, even though white supremacist cultural forces have tried to force them to have straightened hair or no hair at all.
So ... is Kim forcing North to have straight hair in order to fit in with European beauty standards?
First of all, North only rarely wears her hair straightened.
Kim has spoken at length about how much North loves her hair and about how Kim encourages her biracial children to love their hair and skin.
And we just can't imagine Kim forcing North to wear her hair one way or the other.
Especially, you know, for North's own birthday party. Some parents would, sure.
But say what you will about Kim Kardashian -- she is a loving mother.
Or, as one Twitter user phrased it:
"Kim has taken such good care of North's curls over the years. The comments about North's hair being straightened [are] tired," the person writes.
That tweet continues: "First of all, mind your own children."
Now, if a parent is doing some sort of harm to their child, by all means, we all have a duty to speak up.
But straightening North's hair or giving her hair extensions or whatever for her birthday and a visit to a candy shop is honestly no big deal.
It is certainly not harmful.
Kim Kardashian is hailed as a "beauty guru" by many. We somehow can't imagine that she's going to sabotage her own daughter's hair.
Melissa Satta is one Italian model that can make any man she walks past shout “mamma mia” without doing much more than just smiling. Her shape is captivating. It deserves attention and praise. Out of everything a person could find at the beach, it would be easier finding a pirate ship full of buried treasure than it would be to find a hotter woman on the same section of sand. She looks so wonderful that I would advise bringing a second pair of binoculars just to get an even better look.
I’v notice Melissa likes to keep buckets of water around just incase. I can imagine a woman as hot as her is easily susceptible to spontaneous combustion so that’s smart thinking on her part. It’s better to be prepared than to just burst into a big ball of hot stuff on the beach. She’s so hot she could put the sun out of business. I may need to take up an Italian class or two if that’s what gets me closer to her. I’m already pretty fluent when it comes to the language of love but learning a few phrases from a foreign language would only make me that much more mysterious to her. And mysterious men always get the woman in the end.

Everyone’s who’s anyone or anybody at all was at the MTV Movie and TV Awards this weekend, and it was a veritable who’s who of who’s hot, who’s hotter, and who’s hottest! I do, however, find it ironic that next to none of these women make their living in movies or television, yet here they are, at the MTV Movie and TV Awards.
I guess it’s not like MTV was ever really all that picky about who they invited to events. Remember that time they got Pee-Wee Herman to come to the MTV Awards right after he got busted for stroking it in a theater? MTV has never and will never care where you jerked off, they’re happy to have you.
It’s the MTV way. They know that just because you’re not an actor or a musician or a model or whatever doesn’t mean you’re not special. That’s right. Being hot is just about the only thing some of these ladies have going for them, so think about that before you start yanking on your own Pee-Wee, if you catch my drift.
Don’t you dare pity these hot, talentless women, though. Instead, take solace in knowing that they made more in appearance fees and swag last night then you’ll rake in over the next twelve months. Now that’s something that’ll really make you depressed.

Welcome to Tin Foil Hat Corner where we take a look at conspiracy theories with all the sensitivity and nuance the name of the segment might suggest.
Today, we’re examining whether or not Zack Snyder ever completed a feature length cut of Justice League, and all of the various rumors as to its existence. As soon as Joss Whedon took over directorial duties on the film, rumors began to swirl that Snyder didn’t step down but was actually fired.
The reason Snyder was fired, allegedly, was because his cut of the film was too dark, too much of a mess, and moved further in the direction Man of Steel and Batman v Superman established. They wanted Whedon to come in and take what was there and fix it. That obviously didn’t happen.
DC and Warner Brother consistently dismissed the notion that a Zack Snyder cut of the film existed, even when a group of well-intentioned fans decided to protest outside their offices. Warner Brothers has relented in the past—when a buck was to be made—releasing things like Richard Donner’s cut of Superman II, so it’s not without precedent. A Zack Snyder cut of the film just doesn’t exist, they said.
Then Forbes contributor Mark Hughes argued on Twitter that as far as he knew, there was no complete or nearly complete version of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Director and storyboard artist Jay Oliva, who worked on Man of Steel and BvS, responded to this tweet with a whole series of tweets confirming that Snyder’s version was not only shot, it was 99% complete when he left the project…
Other than incomplete vfx and maybe some reshoots for hook ups everything was shot that was storyboarded. Zack isn’t the kind of director who creates the film in the edit bay. It’s all planned out meticulously from beginning to end. That’s how MoS and BvS was done.
— Jay Oliva (@jayoliva1) June 16, 2018
What I meant with 99% is that all of the scenes Zack envisioned was shot and exists in one form or another. Of course there are still vfx that is unfinished but I never inferred that the film was 99% done. Rather that Zack’s vision was all shot except for a few reshoots planned
— Jay Oliva (@jayoliva1) June 16, 2018
I think they are responding to people saying that the Snydercut (prior to Whedon’s involvement) does not exist and is not a cohesive story because Zack left. It may not be 100% polished but all of the planned scenes were shot and edited into a full timeline.

So yeah, conspiracy theorists, I don’t know where this leads us. I do, however, know that harassing WB’s new overlord AT&T about it is not helping anyone…
Hey Chris, thanks for your feedback. We are always looking to expand. We are always here you. ^NatC

What is the point in wearing a swimsuit that rides up into your butt cleavage if the wearer is just going to spend all of their time pulling it back out of there? That is what Renee Bargh looks to be doing here and I do not understand it. I know when my swim trunks start riding up I just let them be. After a while I do not even notice it anymore. There is also the added benefit of it driving the ladies wild. The wedgie really accentuates my buttocks and has a way of drawing the eyes of onlookers.
If you really have an issue with getting wedgies then why not wear a different style of swimsuit? They have those mom styled swimsuits, after all. There is no risk of those riding up anywhere unwanted.
People are always digging at their clothes when it gets caught between the cheeks, but no one is ever digging at their thong. That is why I recommend having your mindset shift when you get the unwelcomed wedgie. Simply pretend that what you are wearing is a thong and it is meant to be worn that way. It’s a simple fix.

What is the purpose of doing so much hugging while in the water? Unless one of them does not know how to swim, I see it as entirely unnecessary.
And even if it is intended to be a safety precaution to prevent one from drowning, by using both arms they are nullifying any good that they could do. Arms are pretty damn important when it comes to swimming, and you are not going to do anyone much good without them. Lieutenant Dan did just fine swimming without any legs, but no arms would be a death sentence.
Now this is all said under the assumption that one of them cannot swim. I make that assumption because there is no other realistic theory. All of this physical touching between two people who (probably) have no intention of hooking up baffles me. Men do not show affection in this way. The most sensual touching we do to each other is a delicate tap to the testicles in order to enact grievous pain for everyone else’s amusement. One may not think this would be the case, but it is actually more satisfying to watch than even two lightly clothed women hugging.

2015’s Ant-Man certainly didn’t start the trend of the snarky, petty protagonist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it did give us one of its most endearing versions in Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang. This new TV spot for the upcoming sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, pokes fun at the relatively low stakes of this particular adventure coming out of Marvel’s biggest-ever, world-shattering, crossover event, Infinity War.
Speaking of which, can I just say that they dug their own graves on this decision to hold back the subtitle of Avengers 4? They said it was a spoiler for the ending of Infinity War, which was spoiled for the entire world by the end of the film’s first weekend. Basically, when that whole “I don’t feel so good” thing became an insta-meme, the game was up.
So holding off on releasing the subtitle for Avengers 4 is only gonna backfire in this current climate where half of the people love it and half of the people hate it with the fire of a thousand suns. It was a really bad move on their part, akin to J.J. and compant lying about Khan being the villain of Into Darkness.
But I digress… Ant-Man and the Wasp looks like it’s gonna be a lot of fun, and the mid-and/or post-credits scenes will likely address Thanos’ snap, because they can’t build that into the climax of the film lest they ruin any hope the film has at being disconnected from the universe at large. Shit, they’re totally gonna do it, aren’t they? We’ll find out on July 6.

There are so many things that people take for granted every single day. Things that seem like they are just part of life to us now were luxuries to our ancestors, some of them may have even seemed impossible. The ways that people used to live even decades ago seem absolutely unfathomable now; the ways that ancient humans existed seem like they can’t even be real. Did you know that time wasn’t even officially established until 1840? A railway company decided that time should be synchronized so people could catch their trains. Here are ten ways that humans used to live that might blow your mind, and some of them are more modern than you’d think.
Used Physical Maps in the Car
This one isn’t as drastic as several of the others featured on this list but it’s one that seems just as crazy. Many people haven’t even seen a map, but there was a time where people relied heavily on maps to get anywhere at all. When planning a road trip, instead of just checking online or plugging an address into the GPS, people had to purchase maps of where they would be going and either write down the directions by hand or use the map as a reference guide throughout the trip. No thanks.
Used Knives to Maintain Their Nails
Having long fingernails, sometimes up to a foot long, was a status symbol back in the day. It showed other people that you didn’t need to work or carry out your daily activities on your own because you had someone to do it for you. Fingernail clippers weren’t invented until 1875, so before then, people had some weird methods of keeping them short. There have always been people who prefer to bite their nails. But what about the rest of us? Romans used knives to carefully pare down their nails until they were a manageable length. Perhaps the most shocking, in China, they would typically wait for them to just snap off on their own.
Used Mercury as Medication
Mercury is now known to be incredibly toxic to humans. Symptoms brought on by mercury poisoning include nerve loss in the hands and face, memory problems, trouble seeing and walking, and more. There is no true cure for mercury poisoning, either. But, back in the 1500’s, mercury was seen as a cure of its own. Dr. John Hunter claimed to have cured himself of syphilis using mercury. It is now thought that his syphilis was just in a remission period. Different methods included using it as an ointment and taking a vapor bath. These were used as treatments for hundreds of years.
Used Cocaine for… Everything
Some of the greatest minds in medical history, such as Sigmund Freud and William Halsted, swore by their use of cocaine. It was originally included in the soft drink Coca-Cola, which is likely how the drink got its name. It was also touted as a miracle drug because of the euphoric feeling it produces as well as [...]
The post 10 Ways Humans Used to Live That Seem Bizarre Today appeared first on PopCrunch.
Justin Bieber is back together with an ex-girlfriend.
No, not Selena Gomez.
Not right at this moment, at least. Just give them a few weeks.
Instead, the Biebs is once again knocking boots in bed with the Balds.
Hailey Baldwin, that is.
Bieber and the model/daughter of occasional actor Stephen Baldwin first dated in 2016.
It was mostly just a fling at the time, even though it lasted for several weeks.
Why not, though? Considering the red hot sex these stars were allegedly having with each other.
Fast forward about two years and chatter over Justin and Hailey reconnecting their private parts with each other started to grow strong earlier this month after the celebrities were spotted in Miami.
They weren't merely hanging out, either, a source tells Us Weekly; they were "being very flirty and dancing on each other” while “holding hands" at a club in South Beach.
“Justin [put] his arm around Hailey throughout the night,” a witness told this tabloid about a week ago.
The day after this fairly romantic evening out, Bieber and Baldwin supposedly enjoyed a date at Casa Tua before going clubbing again, this time at popular hotspot LIV.
Neither party denied this story, but that's all it was: a story.
Now, however, the rekindled relationship can be chiseled in stone.
TMZ has shared two photos of Bieber and Baldwin kissing over the weekend in New York City. In one of these sex snapshots, Baldwin is leaning up against a railing on the East River, her lips smacked right up against Justin's.
On another, the pair had apparently crossed the river into lower Manhattan and then started making out some more in Rockefeller Park.
Bieber and Gomez, of course, had gotten back together last November, a few months after the latter underwent a kidney transplant.
Such a procedure reportedly frightened Justin, making him think he might lose Selena and causing him to realize she is the true love of his douchey life.
But the 97th version of this romance only lasted a few months, with sources actually saying Gomez put a halt to it because her family didn't approve and she needed some space.
That may very well be true.
But it's also clearly true that Bieber has grown tired of waiting for his so-called soulmate.
Baldwin and Bieber, meanwhile, have not been shy about making out in public, be it in Miami or The Big Apple.
But they are yet to actually comment on their relationship and yet to share any pictures together on social media.
Hailey had said in April of 2016 that "it's hard to date somebody in this industry" due to the inevitable scrutiny, but she appears to have gotten over this stance by getting back under Bieber.
In a sexual sense, we mean.
"You have to have really thick skin and be very strong. You have to focus on the person and nothing else," Baldwin told Marie Claire a couple years ago, adding at the time that she and Bieber were never an "exclusive" tandem.
This could also be accurate now, too.
But they're obviously pounding the heck of each other at night.
