Golfer and SI Swim Model Paige Spiranac ‘Didn’t Want to Live Anymore’ After Cyberbullying

 

On the eve of one of the biggest tournaments in golfer Paige Spiranac’s career, she was sobbing on the floor of a hotel room after dealing with cyberbullying.

Spiranac, then 22, had been called the “hottest golfer on the planet,” and because she got an invite to the tournament to bring recognition to the event, not based on her skill, people said she wasn’t good enough to play, and that she was only sexualizing the game.

“It really affected me,” Spiranac told Sports Illustrated. “I was sitting in the bathroom just balling and was like ‘I don’t want to go through this pain, this feel of helplessness. Being alone. Scared.’ And I said I never wanted anyone to feel the way I felt in that moment. How scared I was. How helpless I felt in that I was bullied so bad to the point that I didn’t want to live anymore.”

And this wasn’t the first time she experienced bullying. As a child, Spiranac had a condition that made her hair fall out, and classmates said she looked like a boy.

“I had a lot of health issues growing up,” she said. “On top of the hair condition, I had asthma and bad social anxiety. I was one weird little kid. So I know how it feels to be an outsider, how it feels to be bullied, to have no friends, to be that person no one wanted around.”

Now 24 and in the 2018 SI Swim issue, Spiranac hopes to use this stage to spread awareness about cyberbullying, and her work with the non-profit Cybersmile.

“People of all walks of life are cyberbullied every single day and that’s not okay,” she said. “It’s time we start supporting the victims instead of telling them to delete social media or ignore the hate. It’s time we made a difference, so I’ve dedicated a significant portion of my time to helping others.”

Spiranac knows, though, that posing in just a Wonder Woman-inspired chest plate could open her up to more criticism. But she’s ready for it.

“Even though being in the SI Swimsuit Issue has always been a dream of mine it would be a lie to say that I didn’t think about what the response might be,” she said. “I mean I wear leggings and people say that the way I’m dressed is inappropriate! But in the end, it’s not the opinions of other people that matter — it’s if you’re doing things that make you feel happy, fulfilled, and empowered. You can’t let negativity hold you back from living your life!​”

Fiona the Hippo May Not Be the Cincinnati Zoo’s Cutest Newborn Anymore — Meet Kendi the Rare Baby Rhino!

It’s raining adorable newborns at the Cincinnati Zoo.

The zoo, home to social media superstar Fiona the baby hippo, recently welcomed an eastern black rhino calf.

Seyia the mama rhino gave birth to Kendi on Monday morning, the zoo shared in a press release, the first eastern black rhino calf born at the zoo since 1999.

The mother rhino, who waited 15 months to give birth, was quick to dote on her first child. Cameras in her private enclosure captured Kendi’s birth and the calf’s first moments with mom, which included Kendi’s first steps.

Obviously, Kendi is a quick learner and is sure to pose some friendly competition for current zoo darling Fiona regarding the title “Most Precious Zoo Newborn.” The calf is also an important addition to the overall animal kingdom.

“Every rhino calf born is incredibly important for the population, which includes fewer than 60 in North America. Calves will stay with their mothers for 3-4 years which means that the average female can only have one calf every 5 years,” Christina Gorsuch, curator of mammals at the Cincinnati Zoo, said in the zoo’s release.

Ignorant to all the buzz surrounding its birth, Kendi has spent the past 24 hours enjoying quality time with mom. Zookeepers have given the family their space to bond, so they have not had the opportunity to confirm the sex of the calf.

The name Kendi, which was chosen by the zoo’s staff, means “the loved one” in Swahili.

If there is one certainty about Kendi’s future, it is that the calf will be loved by all it meets.

Outlander: “Not in Scotland Anymore” Review

Full spoilers for Outlander continue below.

Outlander certainly isn’t in Scotland anymore in Season 2, and it leaned fully into that premise in the second episode of the season.

Welcome to 18th century Paris, and all the glitz, glamor and political intrigue that comes with it. “Not in Scotland Anymore” leaned into the humor of the Frasers being a couple in the wrong setting (twice over for Claire, as she’s not even in the right time period). If there was one through-line of the episode, it’s that it was funny, and that balanced the darkness that was plaguing Jamie and Claire.

Speaking of that darkness, the big reveal at the end of the episode is that Black Jack Randall didn’t die at Wentworth Prison. Showrunner Ron Moore was smart not to keep that a secret past two episodes (especially given the fact Black Jack’s “alive” status in Dragonfly in Amber is well-known by book readers). Still, the structure of the episode underlined well just how significant that reveal is. Even if Black Jack had been dead, he still is alive in Claire and Jamie’s relationship. The poison of his torture is keeping them apart intimately, in both a sexual sense and a personal one.

How To Make DIY Flower Crowns, Because They Aren’t Just For Brides And Hippies Anymore

diy

There are certain music festival trends that we hope never make the transition to mainstream (read: all-fringe everything), but there are others we welcome with open arms. Take the flower crown, for instance, which was once exclusively the territory of bohemian brides and hippie flower children. It’s now become a summer staple (thanks, Beyoncé!).

It’s for good reason: The flower crown looks good on everyone, complements any hair style (including bad hair days), smells delightful, and looks just at home on the beach as it does at a bachelorette party or baby shower. But the best thing about flower crowns has to be that you can make them yourself — really, it’s surprisingly easy and cheap to string something together. You can have customizable headgear all summer long.

In Hawaii, flower crowns are known as haku lei — just another version of the traditional lei. Women rock them at the beach for no particular reason, or make them for friends and loved ones on special occasions. They’re so ubiquitous and popular that Honolulu-based flower shop Paiko hosts a DIY flower crown workshop three times a week.

The women at Paiko have become experts on the process, and graciously shared the below tips so we can all blossom into summer with the freshest of trends.

Tom Cruise Isn’t Jumping On Couches Anymore, He’s Hanging Off Planes

In case you didn’t know: Tom Cruise does his own stunts.

And for his latest trick, the 52-year-old actor — wearing a tailored gray suit and dress shoes — clings to the fuselage of an Airbus A400M as it soars 5,000 feet in the air, according to The Daily Mail. Why did he do this, you may ask? Well, for his most recent turn as spy Ethan Hunt in “Mission: Impossible 5,” of course.

Granted Cruise was strapped in with two safety harnesses as he flew over rural British airspace, but, come on, who allowed one of world’s most beloved and revered actors to do this? (We’d like to check their heart rate.)

It’s nothing new for the action star, though: Cruise dangled 1,700 feet from the side of the world’s tallest building, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, for 2011’s “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.”

“The reason that I do [the stunts] is, it’s a challenge, but it’s also a part of storytelling,” Cruise said during a press conference for “Ghost Protocol.” “It’s something that I do because I feel for the audience, that they’ll really enjoy it more if they see me doing it in the camera. And I think that it adds a wonderful element of storytelling and that’s really the reason why we push ourselves both in telling the story and in doing those things to make it as exciting for the audience as possible.”

Hello Kitty Is Not A Cat Because Nothing Makes Sense Anymore

You might want to sit down for this one.

Sanrio has revealed Hello Kitty — the supposedly adorable feline character that adorns everything from lunch boxes and toasters to t-shirts and lingerie — is, in fact, not a cat. We repeat NOT A CAT.

Just what is Hello Kitty, you’re asking?

Hello Kitty is a human girl (and a British one at that), Christine R. Yano, the author of “Pink Globalization: Hello Kitty’s Trek Across the Pacific,” told The Los Angeles Times.

“Hello Kitty is not a cat. She’s a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She’s never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature,” Yano explained to the Times.

And if you are ready for your mind to be just a little more blown, the character we all know as Hello Kitty is actually Kitty White — a Scorpio who loves apple pie, and is the daughter of George and Mary White.

“She has a twin sister. She’s a perpetual third-grader. She lives outside of London. I could go on. A lot of people don’t know the story and a lot don’t care,” Yano told the paper.
