Inside Eddie Murphy’s Rollercoaster Love Life: From Dating a Spice Girl to Baby No. 10

At 57, Eddie Murphy is set to soon become a father of 10 with his girlfriend Paige Butcher expecting her second child in December.

Since Murphy broke through on the comedy scene in the 1980s, he’s been connected to multiple women and fostered a large, loving family.

In the wake of his latest baby news, here’s a look back on his romantic connections over the decades.

Mid-1980s
Murphy meets Whitney Houston and the two had a quiet romance. “I watched them once at a party,” family friend and employee Ellen White told PEOPLE. “Eddie came in, cameras were flashing and they just looked at each other and talked and laughed like they were the only two people in the room.”

1988He meets future wife Nicole Mitchell.

1989
The Oscar nominee is connected to Paulette McNeely and they welcome Murphy’s oldest son Eric, now 29, in July of that year. Murphy’s oldest daughter and first child with Mitchell, Bria, is born in November of that year.

1990
In November, Murphy’s girlfriend Tamara Hood gives birth to his son Christian, now 27.

1993
Murphy and Mitchell tie the knot in January and welcome Myles, now 25, in November.

1994
Their daughter Shayne Audra, 23, is born in October.

1997
The former Saturday Night Live cast member gets stopped by police at 4:45am after picking up a transvestite prostitute, born a male but identifying as a female, at a homosexual prostitution spot in West Hollywood. Police found that no illegal activity occurred on Murphy’s end, but the sex worker was picked up on an outstanding prostitution warrant. Murphy later claimed he was just giving her a ride home.

1999–2002
Murphy and his wife stay together and go on to have two more kids, daughters Zola Ivy, 18, and Bella Zahra, 16.

2006
Murphy announces he and Nicole are divorcing. “The welfare of our children is our main concern and their best interest is our first priority,” he said in a statement issued by his rep, Paul Bloc.

After the breakup, Murphy starts seeing former Spice Girl Melanie Brown and businesswoman Tracey Edmonds.

2007
Brown and the comedian welcome a daughter together, Angel Iris, now 11. Murphy publicly questioned Angel’s paternity, but a DNA test proved he is in fact her dad.

2008
Murphy marries Edmonds — who has two kids with ex-husband Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds — in a nonlegally binding ceremony on a private French Polynesian island on New Year’s Day, only to split up two weeks later. Sources suggested at the time that Edmonds didn’t get along with Murphy’s mom Lillian Lynch, and that the TV personality didn’t want to take the Daddy Day Care star’s last name.

2010
Murphy is spotted out with actress Maya Gilbert.

2012
Amid rumors that he’s dating Toni Braxton, Murphy tells Access Hollywood they’re “just friends.” Murphy is then linked with Australian model Butcher, who is 19 years his junior.

2016
Butcher gives birth to their first child together, Izzy Oona, in May.

2018
After being seen out in Los Angeles numerous times over the summer with a baby bump, a rep for Murphy confirms on Aug. 27 that Butcher, 39, and Murphy are expecting their second baby, his 10th, in December.

Florida Woman’s Arm Found Inside Alligator After She Disappeared While Walking Dogs

The body of a Florida woman who went missing on Friday morning while walking her dogs has been found, and police suspect a 12-foot, 6-inch gator captured nearby is responsible for her death.

On Saturday, the law enforcement division of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced that search teams had recovered the body of Shizuka Matsuki from the Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park lake in Davie — not far from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

“We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Shizuka Matsuki,” the organization tweeted. “We will be conducting a thorough investigation into this incident.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Matsuki, 47, had last been seen at the lake near the Ft. Lauderdale lake walking her two dogs, a witness told Davie Police Detective Viviana Gallinal, CBS News reported. A short time later, she was gone, though her dogs were found still on leeches and barking towards the water.

Trappers pulled an alligator from the lake hours later, NBC News reported. FWC officials then cut the reptile open and found a human arm inside, believed to be Matsuki’s.

“After an initial necropsy, evidence was found that indicates that the victim of this incident was bitten by the alligator that was captured earlier today,” FWC spokesman Robert Klepper said, according to WSVN.

One of Matsuki’s dogs also “got bit by the gator,” Davie Police Major Dale Engle told the Sun Sentinel.

Her husband was out of town at the time of the attack, the paper reported.

A neighbor told the Miami Herald that he had warned his wife not to walk near the nature park. “He had warned her not to take the dogs over to that place because they had seen gators before and it isn’t safe,” neighbor Peter Limia, 37, said. “She was just your ordinary soccer mom. It’s a tragedy.”

The dogs, which are pit bulls, are currently with Broward County Animal Care, reported the Herald.

REALTED VIDEO: Alligator Captured on Video in Same Location Where Boy Was Snatched by Alligator at Disney Hotel

According to the FWC, 401 unprovoked alligator bite incidents have occurred in Florida from 1948 to 2017. Of those, 24 of them were fatal.

The most recent was in 2016, when 2-year-old Lane Graves was dragged into a lake by an alligator and killed while playing on the water’s edge during a family vacation at a Walt Disney World hotel in Orlando.

WATCH: Go Inside the Cannes Film Festival’s Most Exclusive Party Spot — the Hôtel du Cap

 

Want to vacation among Hollywood’s most glamorous? Just head to the Hôtel du Cap.

With the 2018 Cannes Film Festival getting under way, stars are gathering at what is often dubbed the most exclusive hotel on the French Riviera — its full name is the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc — to mingle and party throughout the nearly two-week long fest. And PEOPLE Deputy Editor J.D. Heyman is giving you an inside look.

“This has been a Hollywood hotel since the beginning of the 20th century,” explains Heyman.

RELATED: All About the Utah Resort Where Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima Celebrated His Birthday

The hotel is a hot spot during Cannes. Last year, everyone from Uma Thurman and Will Smith to Jessica Chastain and Tobey Maguire stepped out at the amfAR Gala, held at the hotel every year. And models including Emily Ratajkowski and Coco Rocha shared glam photos of themselves enjoying the iconic property on social media.

 

The previous year, on-again couple Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry all but confirmed their relationship with a cheeky Instagram post snapped on the hotel’s famous steps.

The property has also been a fixture in literature and a getaway spot for some of America’s most iconic luminaries.

Fitzgerald based the hotel in Tender is the Night ” says Heyman, adding that the Kennedy’s often chose the oceanfront hotel as a vacation destination. ” John F. Kennedy was here when he was 21 years old.” (The hotel is located just off the Boulevard John F. Kennedy.)

During the festival, the hotel serves as the site of numerous parties, including the amfAR benefit and the De Grisogono jewelry party.

And with Hollywood guests as hotel regulars, it’s no wonder rooms can cost at least $ 2,000 a night. In fact, up until 2006, Hôtel du Cap was a cash-only hotel, meaning guests had to either bring wads of bills in their suitcases or wire money to pay for their stay.

But the price is well worth the extravagant amenities and breathtaking views.

“It stretches over 20 acres here of pines and tropical gardens,” says Heyman. “The Hôtel du Cap is the jewel of the French Riviera.”

Kylie Jenner, Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio! Inside All of Coachella’s Hottest Parties

The first weekend of Coachella 2018 may be coming to an end, but memories of epic performances and parties will last forever.

On Friday, the stars started flooding into the Palm Springs, California, area for the annual music festival, which featured headliners The Weeknd, Beyoncé and Eminem.

And since it’s not all just about the music — celebrities like RihannaLeonardo DiCaprioKendall and Kylie Jenner and more hit up exclusive parties to get in some pampering, catch up with friends and dance the night away.

Kicking off the weekend with a bang, Rachel Zoe hosted her fourth annual ZOEasis Style Retreat at Coachella on Friday. She welcomed guests including Olivia Culpo, Paris Hilton, Whitney Port and Victoria Justice to her Moroccan-themed bash at the Parker Palm Springs. Lisa Rinna and Amelia Hamlin made the event a fun mother-daughter outing. Brody Jenner’s fiancée Kaitlynn Carter showed up wearing the same dress as Zoe, and the ladies posed together for a festive who-wore-it-best moment. While at the party, guests enjoyed cocktails using Belvedere Vodka’s new flavor Ginger Zest and had the chance to get their ears pierced and hands painted with henna.

Later on in the night, Sean “Diddy” Combs was spotted partying at the nANA jUDY Cabana with his girlfriend, singer Cassie Ventura, while at CombsFest — an event hosted by his sons, Christian and Justin. The party featured a high-energy performance by Lil Wayne, who had a blast performing and couldn’t stop thanking the fans in the crowd for the support. Lil Wayne’s daughter, Reginae Carter, hung out on the side of the stage for the entire duration of her dad’s set and could be seen excitedly dancing and rapping along to all of his hits.

Friday’s headliner The Weeknd celebrated at the TAO X Revolve Desert Nights party afterparty in Palms Springs with a group of pals, including recent Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet. After surprising fans with Jamie Foxx and Rita Ora appearance on the festival stage, Norwegian DJ Kygo stopped by for a post-performance celebration. Ansel Elgort was one of the first to arrive at the private estate with his longtime girlfriend Violetta Komyshan. Iggy Azalea arrived hand-in-hand with rapper Tyga, and the two sparked romance speculation while posting in front of the DJ booth for most of the party. Nicki Minaj arrived with Migos rapper Quavo, with whom she took over VIP section. The duo left together but not before Nicki danced atop a couch to her new song “Chun-Li.” New parents Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott arrived alongside Kourtney Kardashian and her boyfriend Younes Bendjima, Jordyn Woods and Chance the Rapper. The crew joined Minaj and Quavo at a VIP table and shared a few laughs before closing down the party for the evening.

Jenner and Kardashian’s group later arrived at the BMWi presents the Poppy pop up, which was held to celebrate their new Kourt X Kylie makeup collection, a collaboration between the new mom and her older sister. Just before 3 a.m., Scott grabbed the mic and began to DJ with his girlfriend’s sister Kendall. Although Jenner attended the party sporting bright pink hair, she tried to keep a relatively low profile and spent the night standing behind her boyfriend and sister. During Scott’s set, she stood behind him alongside her friends Woods and Justine Skye.

On Saturday, a stylish crowd flocked to REVOLVE’s Desert House at the Merv Griffin Estate, including Emily Ratajkowski (arm-in-arm with her new husband Sebastian Bear-McClard), Nicole Richie, Shay Mitchell and a slew of Victoria’s Secret models. More than 1,000 guests danced the day away to A$ AP Rocky and 21 Savage while stars and VIPs beat the heat in poolside cabanas with goblets of Moët Ice Imperial — the first-ever champagne created to specifically be enjoyed over ice.

At Lucky Brand’s Desert Jam, Charli XCX and Harry Hudson performed for a poolside crowd, including Patrick Schwarzenegger and his girlfriend Abby Champion.

Meanwhile, Bootsy Bellows hosted a huge pool party sponsored by McDonald’s and PacSun at a private estate. After Erika Jayne was one of the first to arrive, Amber Rose made a grand entrance with a group of friends, all of whom wore matching cheerleading outfits with the word “Sluts” on the front. Ariel Winter and her boyfriend Levi Meaden, along with her Modern Family costar Nolan Gould, made their way to a poolside table before chowing down on some fries. Sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid commanded a separate table with their friends, including Hailey Baldwin. Anwar Hadid cuddled up with his girlfriend Nicola Peltz at a table, which also included Brooklyn Beckham, Kaia and Presley Gerber and Jaden Smith’s ex-girlfriend, Sarah Snyder.

The party featured a performance by Rae Sremmurd, who closed out the event by jumping in the pool — with microphone in hand! Arriving just before 6 p.m., Kendall Jenner made her way into the party alone and met up with the Hadid sisters and Baldwin. Though Jenner was previously linked to NBA star Blake Griffin, the two seemingly avoided each other. When Griffin walked past Jenner’s table, she looked straight at him and turned to whisper something to a friend.

DiCaprio rolled up to Rihanna’s Drippin’ pool party for Fenty x Puma with his entourage and headed for the singer’s VIP tent. The two famously were spotted hanging out together at the Neon Carnival in 2016, which DiCaprio made his way to again this year later on that night.

The Oscar-winning actor hasn’t missed Neon Carnival, which is presented by Levi’s and Tequila Don Julio, since the party’s inception. He arrived incognito in a blue hoodie, hat and 3D glasses and was escorted through a private entrance to his VIP table, where he and friends sipped on Don Julio 1942. Chance the Rapper was spotted dancing at his table next to French Montana at the event, which featured a slew of carnival rides and games. Bachelor Nation’s Nick Viall, Dean Unglert and Kristina Schulman could also be seen taking in the party.

Stadium Goods to Open Store Inside Nordstrom

Stadium Goods is aligning with another big entity.
LVMH Luxury Ventures recently backed the streetwear and sneaker retailer, which is now partnering with Nordstrom to operate a concept space within its new men’s store, which is slated to open on April 12 at 235 West 57th Street.
“Sneakers are the fastest growing category in men’s footwear and partnering with Stadium Goods punctuates our commitment to showcasing the best and most rare sneakers from the hottest brands that have long sold out elsewhere,” said Kristin Frossmo, executive vice president and general merchandise manager for shoes at Nordstrom. “Sneakers have disrupted fashion and are now being mixed with everyday looks — from desk to dinner. We couldn’t be more excited to be Stadium Goods first retail partner of choice.”
This innovative deal brings after-market sneakers into a retail space that sells brand new shoes. According to John McPheters, who cofounded Stadium Goods with Jed Stiller, this has been in the works for a couple of years, but it wasn’t a difficult sell.
“We’ve spent so much time trying to elevate the after-market experience,” said McPheters. “And we feel like we are getting to a great place to be able to sell our product in Nordstrom. It’s a

Inside Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s Painful Past and New Family Drama: ‘He Feels Like She Crossed a Line’

 

At the heart of ongoing drama between former Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and his son Brandon, is a long and painful history between the rocker and ex-wife Pamela Anderson.

Lee, 55, and Brandon, 21, made headlines this week following a domestic dispute that left Lee in the hospital. In the aftermath Brandon told PEOPLE the altercation was related to Lee’s alleged alcoholism, while Lee quickly denied the claims, saying “I’m happier than I’ve been in my life. I have a few drinks here and there.”

Still sources say Pamela Anderson, 50, who recently opened up to Piers Morgan about being abused by Tommy Lee during their three-year marriage, plays a key role in the fight.

“ feels like Pamela crossed a line by going out of her way to reference something that happened over 20 years ago, the most humiliating time of your life and such a sensitive subject that was painful for everyone,” says a Lee source of the former Baywatch star’s interview on Morgan’s ITV series Life Stories. Lee responded with a series of tweets about Anderson, which sources claim to be the catalyst for the fight between him and Brandon.

During her interview Anderson rehashes details of her tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship with Lee. Married on Feb. 19, 1995, the popular pair embarked on a headline-fueling rollercoaster that included ups, like welcoming their two sons Brandon in 1996 and Dylan in 1997, and downs, like the years-long court battle they fought after one of their homemade sex tapes was stolen and leaked by a disgruntled employee.

But their lowest point was undeniably a 1998 domestic dispute. Lee was sentenced to six months in the Los Angeles County Jail for spousal battery following an assault that left Anderson with bruises and a torn fingernail. She was reportedly holding their infant son, Dylan (now 20) at the time and Brandon reportedly witnessed it all. Lee pled no contest to the charges.

“It’s like why,” says the Lee source of Anderson’s motives in resurfacing the incident. “Everyone’s in a good place now. He’s happily engaged, the kids are working on their careers. Why when things are great does Pam spend her time going on TV rehashing a destructive, sensitive story. She wound everyone up.”

But a family source contends that things aren’t so great for Lee these days. “Everyone has been concerned for over a year about Tommy Lee,” says a family friend who says Brandon’s claim that Lee suffers from alcoholism is true. “The kid is really concerned about his dad. And he had enough and he was concerned for his mom.”

On Thursday, Anderson, 50, released a lengthy statement to TMZ in which she weighed in on the recent family drama.

“I pray Tommy gets the help he needs. His actions are desperate and humiliating,” Anderson said. “He is a disaster spinning out of control. … I will never talk to Tommy again before he is sober and in his right mind. … This is the Devil – This is the disease of alcoholism.”

In short order, Lee responded to Anderson with a detailed statement of his own. “No matter how much people wanna pin me as this deviant alcoholic abuser, that isn’t me,” he wrote in statement shared with TMZ, adding, “I’m a happy fun loving guy.”

Street Signs: Inside the Restless Mind of Kith’s Ronnie Fieg

NEW YORK — It’s easy to imagine loving shoes, but imagine loving shoes so much that, at 13, you’d rather spend time with them in a stockroom than hang out with friends. Now imagine, 10 or so years later, partnering with Nike, Asics, Adidas and others to rework the designs you used to study in that stockroom. And then imagine finally selling those shoes and wearing those shoes, but, to your surprise, they don’t quite fit. This is how Ronnie Fieg, creative director and chief executive officer of Kith, feels at the moment.
“Where I am right now is like walking around in a pair of shoes and they look fly and you love them, but they are too small. Well, actually, they are too big now. It’s not too big. I don’t want to say that, but the business is a lot bigger than I imagined,” Fieg said in an interview at Kith’s brand new SoHo office in Manhattan, which is a stone’s throw away from its recently opened store on Lafayette Street and a couple of floors above Kering’s New York headquarters. “I’m always uncomfortable because I’ve never been here before.

Experience Matters: Inside the Mind of Enfants Riches Déprimés Founder Henry Levy

It’s a little bit of streetwear, skate, punk, new wave and contemporary art set amid half trashy pawn shop and half art gallery that’s overtaken Maxfield.
Los Angeles brand Enfants Riches Déprimés is next in line for Maxfield’s pop-up series when it opens the doors to its temporary stand-alone space located across from the boutique retailer’s main store on Melrose Avenue.
The temporary shop will have a three-week run selling a limited-edition shoe collaboration with Vans, archival pieces, toys, banners, art and the introduction of Enfants Riches Déprimés furniture, all born out of the mind of founder and sole designer Henry Levy, who sometimes goes by Henri Alexander.
The idea was to create an exterior similar to a pawn shop, complete with fake infomercials created by Levy playing in the store windows. The building’s facade was painted a bright yellow Levy called “obnoxious” amid the street’s more conventional building exteriors. Inside is a bit of a different story with white walls and a gallerylike backdrop for the clothes.
“I really wanted the person coming in to fully get pulled into the experience of the [Enfants] studio, but in a more organized fashion so really pinpoint and consolidate the visual of the art aspect of

Where Is Baby Dream? Inside Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna’s Custody Agreement — and How It Could Change After Online Drama

 

Prior to his social media rampage against his ex-fiancée earlier this week, Rob Kardashian had been amicably co-parenting his daughter with Blac Chyna. But in the wake of Kardashian’s explosive onslaught of online posts against Chyna, who is caring for baby Dream?

Before Kardashian, 30, publicly attacked Chyna, 29, on Instagram and Twitter on Wednesday, the former couple established an unwritten agreement to split their time with their 34-week-old daughter equally every week, a source close to the situation tells PEOPLE.

Per the agreement, Kardashian is to have custody of Dream Sunday through Thursday and then she’s with Chyna Thursday through the following Sunday, but “Rob did not bring Dream home last night and he’s not bringing her today,” says the source.

The source says Chyna currently believes Dream is with a nanny at Kris Jenner’s house and Chyna is sending her own nanny to both houses.

“They have have two nannies, one works five days a week and one works two days a week. The five-day-a-week nanny does the pick up and drop offs,” explains the source. “The baby is supposed to be with Chyna per their agreement — which isn’t written, just what they’ve been doing for the last six or seven months — and she is not. Chyna is doing everything in her power to get her back.”

On Friday, high-powered civil rights attorney Lisa Bloom announced that she is now legally representing Chyna and is seeking restraining orders against Kardashian on behalf of her client after the reality star repeatedly posted graphic and expletive-ridden content about Chyna, in which he accused her of drug use, alcohol abuse and infidelity, and shared three alleged nude photos of her.

“I represent Blac Chyna,” Bloom tweeted Friday. “I just gave Rob Kardashian notice that we’ll be in court Monday seeking restraining orders against him. More to come.”

Chyna’s rep and Bloom’s co-counsel Walter Mosley also told PEOPLE, “Lisa Bloom is the best in the business and has the right sensitivities and skill set to handle this delicate and complex matter. She’s a warrior for women’s rights and that’s the type of lawyer we need right now.”

Chyna’s restraining orders could also be filed on behalf of Dream, but because there is no written custody agreement there is a lot of grey area for the judge to consider in terms of Dreams future, says family law attorney Alyssa Eisner.

“Nobody has a superior right to this child because there’s nothing in official writing, so no one has been provided custody,” says the New York-based lawyer, who is not representing any of the parties potentially involved. “Their de facto arrangement is not law, so the courts would consider that but also look to see what has been the change in circumstance that now brings one of them to court. For example, these pornographic images or allegations of abuse or orders of protections.”

Kardashian and Chyna’s roller coaster relationship began in January 2016, when the two went public with their romance. They got engaged just months later, in April. In May, the two announced they were expecting their first child. They welcomed their daughter, Dream, last November, and by February, PEOPLE confirmed the two had called off their engagement.

Since Kardashian publicly put Chyna on blast Wednesday, his Instagram page was subsequently shut down and he has not responded to PEOPLE’s repeated requests for comment. Chyna initially responded to the messages in a Snapchat post, alleging that Kardashian hit her. The Snapchat was later taken down.

Although Kardashian’s famous family has not made any public comments about the situation, a source told PEOPLE that Kris Jenner and her daughters are “deeply disappointed and frustrated with Rob.”

“He’s made a difficult situation even worse,” said the source, who noted that the family is focusing on Dream. “At this stage, the primary concern is protecting Dream from all this nastiness.”

A Year Since Zoo Closure, Hundreds of Animals Remain Caged Inside

One year after closing down, the 140-year-old Buenos Aires Zoo remains a home for the hundreds of caged animals that were left behind. All of the city-owned animals trapped and their livelihood ignored. The busy streets of Argentina’s capital surrounds the shut-down facility, which opened in 1875, and has now been converted into a park.

Over 1,000 animals were going to be relocated to sanctuaries according to the statements from developers last summer, but the animals continue to live in inhumane conditions a year later. This week, a new plan was released by city officials that centers on the layout and expansion of the park but leaves scarce details on the future of these animals.

“It’s gone from bad to worse. Everything is set for Noah’s Arc to be shipwrecked,” said Claudio Bertonatti, former Buenos Aires zoo director and consultant for the Fundacion Azara non-governmental organization.

Here is look at some of the animals at Buenos Aires Zoo:

City officials have struggled with the process of transferring the animals, needing the authorization of legislation and a study done by an official to determine what animals can be moved. And it was just recently that an official was hired. A critical problem for the zoo-trained animals is the exposure to the wild and possibly dying if moved from their current habitant. A number of groups—including veterinarian groups—want specifics from officials. In April, they took action by writing a letter demanding answers on the future conditions for these animals. Some of the animals, like the three elephants residing at the park, even have legal representation demanding better quality of life.

Inside Julianne Hough’s Star-Studded Bachelorette Party Weekend

Julianne Hough celebrated her last single days this weekend, partying in a tropical location along with two dozen of her closest friends for her beach-themed bachelorette party.

The 28-year-old Dancing with the Stars judge had a gaggle of friends by her side — including stars Nina Dobrev, Cindy Crawford, Kris Jenner, Aaron Paul‘s wife Lauren Paul, and mom Marriann Hough.

Together they shared the fun on social media, using a dozen or so hashtags on their posts. Some favorites? “#JulesBEACHelorette,” “#BitchinB4TheHitchin, “#HastaLaVistaHough,” “#TheFinalHoughrrah,” “#TheLastFlingB4TheRing,” “#BEACHeloretteWithMyBEACHES” and the dominant tag, “#WeDontLaichHimWeLoveHim.”

Along the way, there were plenty of group activities — including a trip to the gym, a trip to the beach, and (of course) dance.

“It’s so special to experience life… the special moments with my daughter,” mom Marriann wrote.

The festivities kicked off on Thursday, where the star’s best friend Dobrev took to her Instagram Stories to share plenty of envy-inducing snaps of the tropical getaway.

Up first? A casual 15 tequila shots — and a full lineup of delicious-looking cocktails.

“We’ve arrived,” wrote Dobrev, 28. “Let the game begins …”

Dobrev also shared a video of their idyllic waterfront setup, complete with an open-air living room, deck and pool.

And of course, there’s the woman of the hour herself, celebrating in a white bikini, veil and pink “Bachelorette” sash — drink in hand, of course.

The two BFFs also posted for selfies, with the bride-to-be flashing her stunning engagement ring.

And since girl’s just wanna have fun, Hough and Dobrev gave fans a little show when they danced in an Instagram video. “Beach please. These girls DEFINITELY know how to have fun. @nina,” Hough captioned the post, adding the hashtag: “#WeDontLAICHhimWeLoveHim.”

The girls enjoyed time on the beach and at the gym on Friday, posing for group photos throughout.

In the evening, they dressed in their best for a fancy dinner — followed by some fun dancing.

Most of Saturday was spent, as most morning are spent after a night of parting, recovering with coffee.

Last December, the Dancing with the Stars judge revealed to PEOPLE Now that Laich, 33, is hoping to show off his own dancing skills at the couple’s wedding.

“It’s so funny because he really wants to do a first dance,” she said. “I was like, ‘Of course, I’ll help you and teach you and we can do some stuff!’ “

Inside Allison Holker’s Son’s Neutral Nursery: ‘I’m Really Big on Letting a Child Decide What Color They Like’

When Allison Holker and Stephen “tWitch” Boss were brainstorming the nursery design for their son Maddox Laurel, now 10 months, they didn’t stick to tradition — and for good reason.

“I’m really big on letting a child decide what color they like, instead of throwing a color at them,” Holker, 29, tells PEOPLE exclusively of Maddox’s room in the couple’s newly renovated home. “I felt going more of a neutral brown would help him find what he likes.”

“I believe that not every girl might like dolls, I don’t think every boy might like cars. I think that a kid needs to have a little more space and develop on their own and see what they are naturally drawn to,” adds the Dancing with the Stars pro. “Going a neutral color will help him pick what his favorite color is on his own.”

The couple enlisted the help of HomeGoods designer Amy Lipnis to bring their vision to life. The resulting space makes use of the neutral browns, tans and creams, but throws in pops of colors like yellow and blue, as well as a few special items that brighten up the room.

“We have a rocking-chair elephant that is just adorable,” Holker says of her favorite piece in the nursery. “Being able to sit with my little boy every night before he goes to bed and read him his story is the best time of the day for me. It’s something we do every night together, and it’s just our special time.”

“I really hope that when he gets a little bit bigger that he’ll actually sit on the rocking chair and actually enjoy it as much as I do. It’s so cute and it adds a really lovely childlike nature to the room,” adds the mom of two.

There’s no doubt little Maddox is covered, but what about Holker’s 8½-year-old daughter Weslie?

“My daughter’s favorite space in the house is definitely our dining room,” she says. “My daughter absolutely gets really excited for our family dinner and she always cooks with us.”

Continues the fit mama, “When we sit down, she’s always excited to ask the first question at the dinner table of, ‘How was everyone’s day?’ She’s always the one to start off the conversation, which we love so much.”

Though Holker and Boss, 34 — The Ellen DeGeneres Show‘s resident DJ — have been living in their first home together for a bit, they have taken their time in making it their own. But their patience and hard work have been worth it.

“We’ve been living in our home for a year now, so we’ve been working on designing it, trying to figure out what to do with . We’re excited to have it finally done and we absolutely love it now,” Holker says.

I Was There: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Election Night Party — Without the Guest of Honor

They arrived wearing their red, white, and Hillary Clinton finest: sweaters with their candidate’s name woven into the nap, custom painted “Nasty Woman” leather jackets, yards of sequins that reflected the excitement felt all around. The supporters who came to New York City’s Javits Convention Center were ready for a party on Election Night.

Unfortunately, the party never happened.

Actress Debra Messing had on comfy-looking bright red sneakers — she was in it for the long haul. Scores of young women wore “staff” badges — though many of them were volunteers. Two little girls showed up with their family wearing “Madam President” buttons and with their faces painted red and blue; bravehearts indeed.

With some early Tuesday predictors estimating that Clinton had upwards of an 85 percent chance to become the first female U.S. President, it seemed likely there was an equal chance of showers from the confetti cannons stationed on either side of the main floor where the Democratic candidate was expected to speak.

Two days earlier, the venue was mostly quiet, save for some campaign staff handing out press credentials. I showed up late in the afternoon on Sunday, and with the shift to daylight savings time (really? An extra hour of this election?) the windowed convention center near the Hudson River was aglow in the sunset. It was impossible to miss the symbolism: That was some big glass ceiling.

By 6 p.m. on Tuesday, blocks of 11th Avenue were cordoned off by police and filled with Clinton fans who would be treated to a show by Katy Perry, and speeches from local Democrats. In between acts, election returns came up on the big screens stationed around the space and outdoors. Connecticut goes for Clinton: Cheers! New Mexico: Cheers!

Having taken to heart the “Don’t boo—vote!” directive from President Obama, there was little in the way of jeering when Donald Trump voters turned a state red; instead it just got quiet. Kentucky. Georgia. Indiana. No big deal, people reminded one another, those are usually Republican states. Here, let’s take a selfie with Mayor Bill DeBlasio in the background.

Then Virginia, Tim Kaine’s home state, was teetering. (It eventually went blue.) And Florida. And people began having the Florida flashbacks: “It reminds me a lot of Gore-Bush,” said a woman from the Virgin Islands. “We all went to bed that night thinking Gore had won and woke up and Bush had won. So I’m not giving up hope.”

Her friend, wearing a ‘HillYeah’ button on her hat, added, “I think we thought she would have been ahead more at this stage.”


Small groups gathered around the TV monitors in the basement cafeteria. There was a run on pasta and beer.

“It is definitely nerve-wracking,” said a supporter from Connecticut, smiling insistently. Moments before she had told me, “The energy is fantastic,” and she seemed to be sticking to that. Her friend wasn’t so sure. Maybe they should think about driving home? “I want to see history being made and I’m afraid if I leave I’ll regret it if she does win.”

The night wore on. The cafeteria closed. The beer bottles emptied, the starchy comfort food consumed. The TV monitors continued to bleed red. The young women volunteers were rotating in and out of the ladies’ room, eyes red.

The faithful were trying to hold on to hope, but it wasn’t easy.

A New York supporter whose daughter was about the age of these campaign workers told me, “My heart is hanging on every word here. I’m on the verge of tears. I’m so upset right now. I have a 20-year-old daughter in college, and I just feel if he gets to be president … It’s all over. It’s just … nothing.”

A rumor circulated after midnight that the venue had to be cleared out by 2 a.m. Suddenly it was after 1 a.m., and the dais remained empty. The crowds were still, well, crowded. And they did what crowds do: They huddled, goofed for the cameras when turned on them, and sang along to the piped-in music.

By 1:30 a.m. or so, two things happened: we began to hear that Secretary Clinton would not speak tonight, but instead would send campaign chairman John Podesta, as at least three states were still too close to call.

The PA system blared what is usually a party-pleaser: Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” On the screen the crowd saw itself reflected, and gamely joined in with Steve Perry’s vocals: “Don’t stop believing, hold on to that fe-eee-lin’. ” Was anyone else thinking about what these words mean? Did anyone else feel that this was as final as the Sopranos finale that had used the song before cutting to black?

Though the big screens, still on closed circuit, didn’t announce it in the moment, Pennsylvania was called for Trump, effectively giving him the win. Podesta took the stage, told us all to go home and get some sleep. There would be more in the morning.

And there was: About eight hours later, the candidate finally spoke. But the party was over, and her supporters — many more than had been at that windowed convention center — gathered in our shared virtual space to hear the first woman to win the popular vote for United States president offer her apologies for not winning the election. “This is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for,” said Sec. Clinton. “And I’m sorry we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country.”

No, this was not the outcome that those who had traveled to the Javits Center had wanted.

I listened to the worries, and tears, and frustrations of supporters as they filed out into the New York City night, past a street vendor with a keen market sense selling Hillary T-shirts marked down to $ 5. I didn’t hear anyone asking for their candidate’s apology. There were practical matters to attend to: Would Uber be able to get through the police barricades? Is the subway okay to take at 3 a.m.?

I took a last look at the building, still lit, and that glass ceiling still frustratingly untouched.

The Inside Track of 161 Ways to Live a Bountiful Life Volume 2

The Inside Track of 161 Ways to Live a Bountiful Life Volume 2


I had noticed on the internet and many of the inspirational websites that I was interested in that there were list posts where advice was given in a list format. I love these lists so decided to do some of my own for my website. At the time of writing (June 2014), I started to produce my own lists of 7 and I did 70 lists of 7, it was a challenge to me to produce these. They are scheduled to be published on my website from November 2014 onwards. However I also thought that these would be great to combine into eBooks and this is the one of three volumes. Why 161 ways? Well, because 70 divided by 3 volumes is 23 lists x 7 in each list equals 161. Easy! Some lists/blog posts I did more than 7 items, so these are marked in the headings below with “!” so that I can be satisfied in my train spotter mind that 161 is the total! My intention is with this eBook is to give the insight and knowledge that I have gained over my life (I am 55 years old) from my travels, working overseas (I am English), from reading, from studying and trawling round the internet. I hope that you will find something here for you from this eclectic list that will enhance your life. In this second volume on reflection I have veered off path a little and I have put in some things in life that I have really enjoyed. So I have used these blog posts and adapted them slightly to explain why this has made my life more bountiful. I have cheated a bit, but my blog is my blog and sometimes I go down different routes but then come back on course, hopefully. I hope you enjoy the journey anyway and some of the writing in here will make your life more bountiful or if not, that you enjoy the journey anyway. Please enjoy your reading and I hope that this eBook helps you in some way and adds to your health, wealth and happiness. Thank you all so much for your support.

Who Ditched Her Dress When She Got Inside? Who Mistook the Curator for a Waiter? Met Gala Gossip You’ll Love

You never imagine the perfectly-coiffed and legendarily cool Anna Wintour putting a single foot wrong, but the longtime host of the Met Gala (and thus, star of the upcoming documentary about it, The First Monday in May) admits that she got caught on camera a couple times doing just that — and sometimes the foot was in her mouth. “People who make documentaries are really sneaky people,” she told PEOPLE. “They just follow you around until you make a complete fool of yourself.”

But she seems to have a good sense of humor about it — and even admits to getting a little verklempt watching the film. “There is a really moving scene in the documentary which shows Andrew [Bolton, the exhibit’s curator] just before the exhibition opened last year just walking through the empty galleries,” she said. “Yes, to me that was absolutely the most emotional [moment]: When you see his work coming together at the end.”

So is Bolton enjoying his star turn? “Anna’s the star,” Bolton replied modestly. “I think it captures the work that goes into the shows we do, and also the work that goes into the gala. Bolton related that the most amusing encounter he had with a star was his first year at the Met gala when he was introduced to Jennifer Connelly. “She thought I was a waiter and she asked me to go get her a glass of wine,” he said.

So what did he do? “I got it for her,” said Bolton. “And she’s a bad tipper.”

Designer Zac Posen recalled another unseen moment. “When I brought Christina Ricci for the Alexander McQueen exhibition,” he said. “She was wearing quite an elaborate dress. She had corset trained through the weekend to wear it. But we knew that training would only allow her to wear it up until a certain moment. From having been an intern at the Met, I know the guards there. So they let me go into a back room right after the first course was served, and I change her into a very transparent, short un-corseted dress. And they carried her gown out through the back entrance to the car in a body bag.”

Supermodel Karolina Kurkova has worn a number of dresses that barely fit in the limo, so much so that she knows exactly how to handle it. “The trick is to sit, and then let someone just shove the dress into the car,” she said. Another highlight every year?“And I have to say the ladies room at the Met is always quite a scene. Everybody is always in there touching up. It will be Jennifer Lopez on one side, and Meryl Streep on the other, Nicole Kidman, Rihanna — that is, if your dress will even fit through the door. At the end of the night, I’ve had to be cut out of a dress many times.”

RELATED PHOTOS: The best dresses at the 2015 Met Gala!

Lauren Hutton also described the ladies room as one of the starriest hangouts. “There are some huge dresses,” she agreed. “The Olsens were in there. That’s part of the fun, helping everybody get in and out of their dresses.”

Rihanna Met Gala 2015Getty


“I loved Rihanna’s dress last year,” said Wendi Deng, a co-host of the 2015 gala. “It was designed by my friend Guo Pei, a Chinese designer. And I’m so proud of her. She works so hard and is so talented. And it helped put her on the map. I saw her later and we had dinner together and she was so happy about it.”

Andre Leon Tally, another star of the documentary, agreed that the most dramatic moment onscreen was: “When Rihanna came up the steps looking fabulous in the Guo Pei coat,” he said. The dress took two years to create and it required a small army to move and place the enormous train for photos on the stairs out front. Ultimately, it was “a moment in time,” Talley said.

What’s your favorite Met Gala moment?
