Neal Kusnetz Joins Ovadia & Sons as President

The Ovadia twins have found their president.
Neal Kusnetz, the cofounder and former president of Robert Graham, who served most recently as president of men’s and private brands for Xcel Brands, has come on board to help Ovadia & Sons expand its reach.
As reported in July, twins Shimon and Ariel Ovadia were searching for someone to join the company as they expand beyond U.S. borders, relaunch their e-commerce site and move into other product categories.
And after meeting with Kusnetz, they knew they’d found the right fit.
“We feel good about this,” said Shimon. “Ariel and I started this business with pure passion to make product, but no business plan and no financial backing.”
The brothers founded Ovadia & Sons in 2010 and the business has grown substantially from a tailored clothing-skewed brand to a multi-category lifestyle label with some 100 retail accounts including Barneys New York, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Shimon said Kusnetz will oversee the day-to-day operations of the brand while he and his brother will “concentrate on product and brand image.
“Running the day-to-day takes up a lot of time and micro-managing,” he added, “and we were at a point where bringing in someone with Neal’s experience to run the operations

Justin Theroux Avoids Running Into Ex Jennifer Aniston at Jimmy Kimmel’s Son’s Birthday Bash

Jennifer Aniston arrived at Jimmy Kimmel’s 1-year-old son’s star-studded birthday bash just as her ex-husband Justin Theroux was making his exit.

The Friends star, 45, spent a couple hours at the Hollywood party mingling with guests and sending her best wishes to the birthday boy on Saturday. The Leftovers actor, 46, was spotted leaving Kimmel’s home shortly before his ex arrived.

“Jen is doing well. She is keeping busy and moving on with her life,” a source tells PEOPLE.

Both Aniston and Theroux are close friends with Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney — Aniston recently went to Tahiti with the pair, and the Kimmels were on the former couple’s honeymoon trip.

Theroux dedicated a special birthday tribute to the child on Instagram over the weekend, posting four adorable photos of himself with Billy. Alongside the images, Theroux wrote a message about his health battles over the past year.

“Happy ONE year birthday Billy! 🎂,” he captioned the snaps. “A boy who in 365 days has done more for American national health care than we could all wish to do in our lifetimes. He doesn’t even know yet how courageous he is. An honor to know him and his incredible and equally courageous parents. ❤

Theroux finished the message by thanking Cedars-Sinai Hospital and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and reminding fans “#registertovote.”

Kimmel and his wife revealed that their son underwent two heart surgeries after he was born with a congenital heart condition, tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia. Last May, the two-time Oscars host announced during a tearful address that Billy had open heart surgery at three days old as a result of his son’s “pulmonary valve completely blocked and a hole in the wall between the left and right sides of his heart.”

Billy had a second surgery at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in December, seven months after his birth. (Kimmel and McNearney also share 3-year-old daughter, Jane. He also has two older children – Kevin and Katie – from a previous relationship.)

The comedian used his platform to become an advocate for universal health care coverage, as well as other political issues, including gun violence prevention.

Meanwhile, a source previously told PEOPLE that since splitting from Theroux, Aniston’s “life now is not very different” than it was before. “Justin has moved on with his life in N.Y.C.,” while “Jen still enjoys hers in L.A.,” the source continued, adding that Aniston “loves socializing with friends.”

Aniston and Theroux announced that they had split after two and a half years of marriage and seven years as a couple on Feb. 15.

Olivia Wilde Recalls How Her Water Broke at a N.Y.C. Concert in Honor of Her Son’s 4th Birthday

Olivia Wilde‘s water broke at the most inopportune time when she was pregnant with son Otis Alexander.

In honor of her son’s fourth birthday, the 34-year-old actress revealed that she began going into labor while she was in the middle of enjoying a concert in New York City.

“Four years ago today we were at a @jonbatiste concert at Webster Hall in Manhattan, and this little one decided he wanted to come out and join the dance party,” she wrote on Friday, alongside a picture of her son wearing a birthday crown and holding up 4 fingers.

“ loves Moana, obviously, and when he thinks about Moana, he thinks of himself as Moana,” explained Wilde. “I love hearing him sing … it’s the best when you can watch them singing in the backseat of your car, and he’s just like, ‘I wish I could be the perfect daughter!’ And he’s just belting it out.”

She continued, “That’s so great because at a certain age he’s going to be like, ‘Well, I can’t, that’s … ‘You know, and he still doesn’t judge things like pink, or dance or gymnastics. These aren’t things that are gender-specific yet.”

“I don’t know why at a certain point we tell them that’s for boys and that’s for girls, but I’m going to do my best to not force that delineation,” Wilde added.

Ovadia & Sons Men’s Spring 2018

Continuing the “narrative of last season,” Ovadia & Sons once again fueled a sporty lifestyle in its spring collection.
The trend-conscious lineup showcased an array of silk souvenir jackets, retro Fifties rayon shirts and geeky-cool pastel-colored suits.
“All the cool kids in school wore baseball jackets, but we couldn’t afford one,” said Shimon Ovadia, who designs the line with his brother Ariel. “So we’re doing them now.”
The less-predictable print that appeared on a coach’s jacket, a pop-over and a track pant was the first peek at a capsule with Interesni Kazki artists from the Ukraine that the twins discovered in their travels.
Their affinity for animal prints worked hand-in-hand with the tribal references they used to update their signature tracksuits.
The jewel tones employed in key pieces such as car coats and track pants added a sense of sophistication to the casual lineup. And the use of cross-body bags and bucket hats served as a reminder that the Ovadia brothers have once again embraced the trends of the season and brought their own twist to it.

Mayim Bialik on How She Tackles Talking Puberty with Her Sons: ‘We Don’t Want Them to Have Shame About Their Bodies’

Mayim Bialik is answering all the questions every young girl has about growing up in her new bookGirling Up: How to Be Strong, Smart and Spectacular – but how does she talk to her own sons about puberty?

The Big Bang Theory star and neuroscientist tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, “We’ve always spoken to our children very frankly and in biologically appropriate terms.”

“We don’t want them to have shame about their bodies or fear about women’s bodies,” says Bialik. “While we tend to be a pretty socially conservative house in terms of how we dress and how we talk about modesty for boys and girls, we’re very matter of fact with them. We know that a daddy cell meets a mommy cell and all those things. ”

Bialik – who shares sons Frederick, 8, and Miles, 11, with ex Michael Stone – addresses female puberty taboos, as well as teen sexuality, body image and stress in Girling Up.

Want all the latest pregnancy and birth announcements, plus celebrity mom blogs? Click here to get those and more in the PEOPLE Babies newsletter.

The guide to how girls grow up was, in part, inspired by Bialik’s own youth as a “late bloomer,” and, she says, being “raised in a house where no one talked about any of this stuff.”

RELATED VIDEO: Anna Chlumsky Reveals Why She Had to Pull Back from Show Business as a Teen

Now, as a trained science communicator, Bialik says she approaches things with her kids matter-of-factly.

“ know all about genetic signaling, and when sex is determined and we’ve talked about the hormonal basis for gender identity and things like that,” she tells PEOPLE.

“And they have plenty of questions – my ex-husband tells me they only ask me and he’s grateful for that. I’ll text him late at night, like, ‘Guess what I was just asked!’ and he’s like, ‘They don’t ask me those things.’ ”

And, luckily, keeping things “frank” seems to have worked. Says Bialik, “Miles was my first editor!”

Bialik’s book, Girling Up: How to Be Strong, Smart and Spectacular, is on sale now.

Saint Laurie Changes Name to Kozinn + Sons

Goliath won out in the end.
Saint Laurie, a third-generation New York City-based tailor, has sold its name to Yves Saint Laurent and changed the name of its business to Kozinn + Sons Merchant Tailors.
Andrew Kozinn, whose grandfather Samuel founded the company in 1913, said his family has been “involved in litigation” with Yves Saint Laurent on and off since the Seventies. But when the company’s former creative director Hedi Slimane decided to drop the Yves from the name and rebrand the collection Saint Laurent Paris in 2012, Kozinn said he sued again.
But the cost of “modern-day litigation,” and battling a massive corporation like Saint Laurent proved too “arduous” for the small Saint Laurie business and Kozinn opted to “sell the trademark to them.”
The deal was quietly cut last year, he said, but under the terms of the sale, Saint Laurie had a year to officially change its name.
Now Kozinn has sent a letter to the Saint Laurie customers revealing the name change and ensuring them of “my family’s continuing pledge to provide quality, service and value to you.”
The letter explained that there was ongoing “confusion” between Saint Laurie and Saint Laurent, especially with online searches, and “the two companies negotiated

Gwen Stefani’s Sons Draw on Tattoos to Match Blake Shelton’s Regrettable Ink

Blake Shelton may regret his arm tattoo, but it seems to have a few mini admirers: girlfriend Gwen Stefani‘s three sons!

Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 3 — who Stefani shares with her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale — got creative over the weekend, drawing on body art that matches Shelton’s deer tracks surrounded by barbed wire.

Stefani shared a photo of four arms donning the artwork on Twitter Saturday.

Shelton, 40, fully admits that his ink didn’t turn out as well as he hoped, more closely resembling Sugar Smacks than deer tracks.

“I can’t blame it on the tattoo guy, because I had been drinking on this occasion,” the country crooner said in a 2013 interview with Access Hollywood. “I drew him this deer track and he just went to the copier and made a copy and slapped it on there, and that’s what I drew.”

FROM COINAGE: 7 Most Expensive Music Videos

Six months later, he had barbed wire added to the arm band, although it didn’t improve the artwork much.

“To this moment, people still come up to me and say, ‘Man, ladybugs … that’s cool. What does that mean to you?’” Shelton said according to Mix 106.5. “I probably have the crappiest tattoo — not only in country music, but maybe the world.”

Stefani’s sons certainly seem to approve of their mom’s beau. The group spent time together at Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch over the holidays, all participating in a dance party.

In one Musical.ly clip, Shelton, Stefani and her two older boys are joined by a couple of other participants to lip sync and jam along to “Don’t Wanna Know” by Maroon 5 featuring Kendrick Lamar, led by Kingston.

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.”

Want all the latest pregnancy and birth announcements, plus celebrity mom blogs? Click here to get those and more in the PEOPLE Babies newsletter.

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.

Father Stunned by Son’s Arrest in Murder of Queens Jogger: ‘He’s Never Had a Fight in His 20 years’

The father of Chanel Lewis, the 20-year-old man who was arrested this weekend for the August 2016 murder of Queens, New York, jogger Karina Vetrano, told reporters that he was “extremely surprised” by the charges.

According to the New York Post, Richard Lewis, a 70-year-old former school principal, called his son a good student and “a very humble kid” when he met with reporters on Sunday.

“Chanel would never have gone to do what they say he has done,” the father said. “He’s never had a fight in his 20 years.”

In fact, Richard said his son, who lived with his mother and siblings in East New York, was previously the victim of crimes. He said Chanel was hospitalized last year after being mugged and hit in the head with a piece of wood by three people. Chanel was later mugged again by the assailants.

The dad said he would tell Vetrano’s family, “I’m sorry to hear about , but I’m sure that would not be a part of that.”

Vetrano’s parents, Phil and Cathy Vetrano, expressed mixed feelings to reporters outside their home.

“I’m not going to say it is a good day but we can move forward now,” Phil said after praising police for their investigative work, according to the New York Daily News. “We know who did this.”

“The demon must get his justice,” Cathy said. “We will see to it.”

 

At an NYPD press conference on Sunday, police said that they do not believe that Lewis knew Vetrano prior to her disappearance. They said he had no prior criminal history aside from some summonses. According to police, Lewis gave a DNA swab to authorities after an interview on Feb. 2. His DNA allegedly matched with DNA found on Vetrano. He has been booked on murder and sexual assault charges, according to police. It is not known how he pleads against the charges or if he has retained an attorney.

On Sunday he was seen leaving a police station in handcuffs while reporters and bystanders shouted at him. In a video from AM New York, Lewis looked around while he was led to a cop car, appearing stunned and confused, as people could be heard yelling “why’d you kill her?”

After six-month long search, the arrest took place Saturday afternoon in Brooklyn, New York, according to the New York Daily News.

Vetrano’s body was found in Spring Creek Park around 11 p.m. on Aug. 2, about a dozen feet from a jogging trail she used daily, according to police.

The 30-year-old was sexually assaulted and strangled after putting up a “ferocious fight,” investigators previously revealed. They further believe Vetrano bit her attacker, because her teeth showed signs of cracking and found DNA under her fingernails.

Unhooked: A Mother’s Story Of Unhitching From The Roller Coaster Of Her Son’s Addiction


I am the mother of an addict. I’m in recovery as much as my addicted son is in recovery. Like many who hear about or personally experience the destructive effects of addiction, it took serious convincing for me to consider it a ‘disease.’ In fact, I was pretty self-righteous about it. I told myself, ‘You don’t see a cancer patient or diabetic stealing from the jewelry box of a family member nor damaging the people that love and need them.’ But I didn’t have an informed understanding of addiction. I was certain I could outsmart and tough love my son right out of addiction.”Annie Highwater’s memoir follows the experiences of one mother who started her own life in a grossly neglected home and came to realize how those experiences both helped and hindered what would be the hardest, most heartbreaking, yet illuminating challenge of her life. Annie learns how to understand her own reactions and digs deep into her past successful and unsuccessful strategies, sets boundaries, enlists resources, and moves through life with acceptance and determination. As the country struggles to address the issues of the rampant epidemic of opioid abuse and addiction, this story is especially relevant in helping us all understand the personal challenges facing parents and family members and how family dynamics both help and hinder the recovery process. This is a short read designed to help families in recovery and open conversation.

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day Alternatives for Realists

Thursday, April 28th is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. As the catchy, Ulysses-length title implies, this annual event invites parents to bring their rugrats along to the workplace, ostensibly to provide a sneak peek at the Sisyphean, soul-crushing slog of adulthood.

Tender Photo Shows Emotional Dad Embracing Jamie Foxx After Son’s Rescue

It was an emotional moment for actor Jamie Foxx and a dad named Brad Kyle: one of them a hero who’d saved a life; the other, a grateful father of the rescued — both wrapped in a tight embrace.

On Monday night, the day before this photo was taken, Foxx heard a loud crash near his home in Hidden Valley, California, and rushed outside. He discovered a truck, flipped on its side and almost engulfed in flames.

The vehicle’s driver was still trapped inside.

With another man’s help, Foxx managed to pull the driver, 32-year-old Brett Kyle, out of the truck before fire completely overwhelmed the vehicle.

“As we pulled him out, within five seconds … the truck goes up [in flames],” Foxx told reporters on Tuesday afternoon. “I don’t look at it as heroic. I just look at it as, you know, you just had to do something. And it all worked out.”

Foxx said Kyle’s father, Brad, came to his home the next day to thank him. The emotional dad told CBS Los Angeles how grateful he was for Foxx’s quick action.

“I think we all hope that we can do something when the time is there. But the question is do we act or do we fear our own lives, and he did not,” said Brad Kyle. “[Foxx] was here when he needed to be here. He was here for my son. And as far as I am concerned, he saved his life.”

In a touching Instagram post, Foxx shared a photograph of him embracing Kyle’s dad. 

“This is all that matters,” the Oscar-winning actor wrote. “That a man, a son, a brother’s life was spared last night. God had his arms wrapped around all of us… No heroes… Just happy fathers.”

According to KABC-TV, Brett Kyle was allegedly driving under the influence when the accident occurred. He broke his collarbone and punctured his lung in the crash. His brother told the TV station that Brett “would be in a much worse situation if Jamie Foxx didn’t come along.”

Artist Michael Kalish Introduces Men’s Lifestyle Brand Kalish & Sons

Artist Michael Kalish is joining the apparel industry. Kalish, who is best known for his large-scale work made from reclaimed objects, will launch a men’s wear lifestyle brand, Kalish & Sons, on Kickstarter today.
“The art world is an interesting place,” said Kalish. “It’s been very good to me but it’s been very limited. I wanted to create a new form of art with this collection.”
The project comes after five years of research that included Kalish traveling to meet with manufacturers across the country, which he is utilizing for his Made in the U.S. collection.
The line includes a classic chore coat, which retails for $ 225, that’s made from a breathable duck canvas and is lined with hand-screened original prints; a utilitarian duffel bag, which retails for $ 225, and limited-edition canvas prints screened on U.S. mail bags, which retail for $ 399. For the limited duration of the campaign, which ends on Nov. 1, backers can purchase these items at a reduced cost. A candle and a mug are also available.
“It’s a starter kit for men or pieces that can easily fit into your collection,” said Kalish, who added that the collection will grow and include more men’s wear staples and home items.

Alec Baldwin and Laurie Metcalf in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons at Guild Hall

The first-rate revival of Arthur Miller’s tragedy All My Sons at Guild Hall’s John Drew Theater is a reason to celebrate theater out east. With a cast led by Alec Baldwin and Laurie Metcalf, under Stephen Hamilton’s direction, the drama moves quickly through the moral dilemma of an American family post-World War II. The sons, one presumed dead, one alive, ask for accountability, a heavy load for Joe Keller — that’s Alec Baldwin, his baggy trousers skimming an ample belly held up by suspenders — who is boss, businessman, and bully. When son Chris (Ryan Eggold) asks the big questions about his possible role in the deaths of 21 fighter pilots and the ruin of his partner’s family, Joe defends himself. He’s got a wife, Kate, submissive, damaged, but spiritual, performed by the formidable Metcalf, and a family to support, a good-enough reason to risk sending out faulty airplane parts from his factory — and, in fact, to lie. To his sons, Chris and Larry, his ordinariness is crushing, tragic — he was Father, better than this moral slide. They could accept no less in Miller’s classic drama.

Much rests on Alec Baldwin’s performance. While it takes a beat to get over that this is Alec Baldwin, he is a fine ensemble player, strutting and throwing his weight around, and attentive to everyone scene to scene. He had this kind of pivotal place in Orphans on Broadway a few seasons ago, allowing the actors Ben Foster and Tom Sturridge to shine. Joe’s volatility with Kate, and with Chris, is powerhouse, but they give it back, as does Annie Deever (Caitlin McGee), Larry’s one-time girl, now back for a visit with some revelations of her own.

The Kellers live in a fine house, Michael Carnahan’s set showing an inventive inside staircase and an outside view on the porch, with trees in the front yard. Also noteworthy are Sebastian Paczynski’s lighting and Amy Ritchings’ costumes, especially when Annie returns home in a sundress that instantly shows the sophistication she’s picked up in her move to New York City. David M. Brandenburg’s original music and sound design is memorable, befitting a play that requires that characters “figure it out, if you want to live.”

Britney Spears Poses With Her Sons As A ‘Proud Skate Mom’

Britney Spears may just be the coolest mom ever.

On Friday, the “Pretty Girls” singer shared a photo on Instagram of herself with her sons, 9-year-old Sean Preston and 8-year-old Jayden James, in their skater gear. Spears sported a backward hat and wrote in the caption, “Just your typical proud skate mom.”

The proud mom, who has shared videos of her skater boys in the past, also threw them a skateboard-themed birthday party last year.

The family recently spent the spring break vacation in Hawaii, where Spears shared photos of the three splashing in the waves. The singer also recently told People magazine in her cover story that she’s taking math classes so she can help Sean Preston with his pre-algebra homework.

Homework is a priority,” she told the magazine. “We have a reward system that helps motivate them: if they get so many As, they get one toy a month.”

As Duggar Dad Ran On A Political Platform Saying Rape And Incest Merited Capital Punishment, He Was Covering Up His Son’s Actions

In 2002, Jim Bob Duggar argued that rape and incest merited the death penalty. But that same year, one of his own sons reportedly committed incest, and Duggar allegedly covered it up.

While running for U.S. Senate in Arkansas, the patriarch of the Duggar clan — the family that is the central focus of the TLC reality TV show “19 Kids And Counting” — said that rape and incest should be punishable by death. Yet during his run, he reportedly knew that one of his sons, Josh, had molested one of his daughters.

Gawker Media dug up a cached version of Duggar’s political platform from the 2002 Republican primaries.

When asked if he believed abortion should be legal if a woman had been raped, Duggar said, “If a woman is raped, the rapist should be executed instead of the innocent unborn baby. … Rape and incest represent heinous crimes and as such should be treated as capital crimes.”

Duggar lost the primary election in May 2002 to the incumbent, Sen. Tim Hutchinson.

While Duggar was running on a platform that included this position about rape, the first allegations that Josh had molested a child surfaced. According to In Touch Weekly, which broke the story, a female minor told Duggar in March 2002 that Josh, who was 14 at the time, had been sexually touching her as she slept. Josh admitted as much to his parents in July 2002.

A police report suggests that the first victim who came forward lived in the same home as Josh. In March 2003, more minors accused Josh of touching their breasts and genitals. The police report suggests that four of the five total victims were Josh’s sisters.

Duggar did not alert authorities. He reportedly did not punish his son at all, except to send him to live and work with a family friend for a while.

When Josh returned, his father allegedly took him to speak with Arkansas State Trooper Jim Hutchens, who gave the boy a “very stern talk.” According to In Touch, Hutchens is now serving 56 years in jail for child pornography.

The authorities first heard about the allegations in 2006, when an anonymous woman contacted “The Oprah Winfrey Show” with details of the accusations. The police launched an investigation, and In Touch reports five victims confirmed that Josh had touched their breasts and genitals.

Reportedly, the police did not press charges because the statute of limitations had expired.

The Duggar family could not be reached for comment. TLC did not respond to a request for comment.

Author Ann Rule Was Abused, Ripped Off By Her Sons, Cops Say

Bestselling true crime author Ann Rule was bilked out of more than $ 100,000 by two of her sons, one of whom demanded money while she “cowered in her wheelchair,” authorities said.

Michael Rule, 51, has been charged with theft in the first degree and forgery, for allegedly writing himself $ 103,628 in checks from his mother’s bank account, according to charging documents. Andrew Rule, 54, was accused of coercing his mother into giving him $ 23,327 and was charged with first-degree theft. Both are free on their own recognizance awaiting trial.

Ann Rule, 84, the author of 30 New York Times bestsellers, has been in declining health since an October 2013 fall that resulted in a broken hip, according to court documents provided to The Huffington Post by the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office in Washington state. She “is on oxygen at all times,” suffers from periods of “extreme confusion” and is “vulnerable to undue influence,” the documents say.

“She is unable to perform many activities of daily living without assistance,” the court documents state.

Her sons began taking advantage of her weakness last year, according to prosecutors.

Authorities were alerted on March 2, when Rule’s son-in-law, Glen Scorr, told the prosecutor’s office he suspected his mother-in-law was being financially exploited by her two sons.

A joint investigation by the King County Sheriff’s Office and the Normandy Park Police Department revealed that four of Ann Rule’s children receive an estimated $ 25,000 monthly salary through her corporation, Rule Enterprises LLC, for “assigned responsibilities.”

Michael Rule, who lives on a property adjoining his mother’s Normandy Park home, allegedly pressured her into providing him with funds above his monthly salary. He forged her signature on checks from March 2014 to February 2015, authorities said.

Michael Rule’s pressure on his mother included verbal abuse, authorities said. He would “yell at his mother demanding money as she cowered in her wheelchair,” the court documents allege. Once, he became so angry that he “screamed at her and threw a cellphone across the room, smashing it to pieces,” according to the documents.

Police said Ann Rule told investigators that “Mike often goes into rages, where he throws things across the room and sweeps a counter clean with his arm.” One of Ann Rule’s caregivers quit because she was “afraid of Mike and his volatile temper,” the documents say.

Andrew Rule also was aggressive in his pursuit of his mother’s money during 2014, authorities said.

“Andy would pester and bully Ann relentlessly for money, sometimes threatening suicide, sometimes trying to make her feel guilty, sometimes screaming obscenities at her, until she would finally give in and write him a check,” the court documents allege.

Ann Rule was granted a protection order against Andrew Rule in January. He was arrested and charged with violating the order on March 27, police said.

While in police custody, Andrew Rule told officers he “has battled drug and gambling addictions for years and that he used the money provided to him by his mother on gambling and strip clubs,” the court documents state.

Ann Rule declined to comment on the allegations against her children. Her books include The Stranger Beside Me, about the serial killer Ted Bundy.

Neither Michael Rule nor Andrew Rule were available for comment on Tuesday. During an interview with KIRO-TV of Seattle, Andrew Rule denied wrongdoing.

“I have never in my life, as God as my witness, stolen anything whatsoever from my mom,” he told the station. “Basically I used to have a gambling problem but I don’t anymore and I have absolutely no idea why I was pulled in at the same time my brother was,” Rule continued.

Dan Donohoe, a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office, told HuffPost the brothers are scheduled to be arraigned on April 30.

How This Widow Is Keeping Her Husband’s Memory Alive For Their Sons (VIDEO)

During the final season of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” Oprah and her team took the show — and one very lucky studio audience — to Australia for the adventure of a lifetime. There was an unprecedented look inside sacred caves, an encounter with some frisky koalas, Hugh Jackman on a zip line… and one particularly unforgettable Aussie couple.

Kristian and Rachel Anderson were college sweethearts living in a suburb of Sydney with their two young boys, Cody and Jakob. Not long before “The Oprah Show” arrived in Australia, Kristian had been diagnosed with liver and bowel cancer, and was literally in the fight of his life. Touched by the couple’s story (which gained attention after Kristian posted a loving video tribute to his wife on YouTube), Oprah had them join her for an episode at the Sydney Opera House and gave them a special surprise.

“We wanted them to spend every ounce of their energy being together and focused on getting well,” Oprah told the Opera House audience, before turning toward the couple. “You shouldn’t worry about the bills… because you will be getting a check for a quarter of a million dollars.”

Sadly, a year after that show, Kristian lost his battle with cancer at age 36. Now, almost three years after his death, Rachel tells “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” how she and their sons have been coping.

“Since we were on ‘The Oprah Show,’ life is… it’s pretty much turned upside down for us,” Rachel says. “In sad ways and good ways.”

With the $ 250,000 gift, the Andersons felt a great sense of relief and gratitude to be able to spend some incredible quality time together. “We booked a Disney cruise, and went to Disney World and Disney Land,” Rachel says, smiling. “[We] had the most magical time as a family.”

The Andersons made the most of their time together, and after Kristian passed, Rachel was devastated. “It was like living in a black hole,” she says quietly. “I remember waking up the first morning after he died. I remember lying there and seeing his wardrobe open and his clothes all there. Just realizing that was it. That was all that we had left. He was gone.”

In the midst of her grief, Rachel focused on her children, though she often struggled when either of her boys reached a childhood milestone. “About two weeks after [Kristian] died, Cody lost his first tooth and I just remember being devastated that Kristian had missed that,” she says. “It was horrible.”

Because Cody and Jakob were young when their father died, Rachel has remained fiercely dedicated to keeping Kristian’s memory alive. “I work very hard to make sure that he’s part of our day, still,” she says.

It’s something Kristian gave thought to as well. Just after he was diagnosed, Kristian started a blog that is now filled with reflections, stories, triumphs and fears. “It was one of his dying wishes that we would get his blog published so that we had something tangible for the children to have growing up,” Rachel says, holding up a book. “I now have this that the boys can sit down and read, and they can find out exactly how Daddy felt at every, single point in his journey.”

As for Rachel, the mother of two has begun a new chapter in her own journey. During an appearance she made on New Zealand television discussing the book, a man named Richard saw her and reached out. The two began communicating and, eventually, dating.

“He turned out to be the most incredible man,” Rachel says. “In January of this year, we got married. He has a daughter that’s in between the ages of my children, so between us, we have a 5-year-old, a 6-year-old and a 7-year-old.”

Cody and Jakob enjoy their stepdad. “The boys think the world of Richard. He’s a big kid, really,” Rachel says. “He’s just fantastic.”

As the children continue to grow and change each day, Rachel believes Kristian is proud and happy to see their lives continue with love and joy. “I honestly do think that Kristian is watching over us,” she says. “I honestly do think he gets these windows into our lives and gets to see what’s happening. [He’s] taking care of us.”

“Oprah: Where Are They Now?” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.

Dad Captures Beautiful Photos Of Son’s Childhood After Almost Losing Him

One morning in 2013, dad Adrian Murray and his wife Michelle experienced every parent’s nightmare. They woke up to find their 10-month-old son Emerson unresponsive in his crib.

The parents rushed their baby to the hospital, where he remained for three days. After severals rounds of tests, doctors still could not provide an answer as to what exactly was wrong with Emerson. A few days later, the Murrays brought their son back to the hospital after they found him unresponsive again. The baby was put on anti-seizure medication.

Emerson’s ordeal was an eye-opening experience for his father Adrian, who was inspired to take photographs of his son’s childhood. “I felt like life goes by in an instant and that I needed to try and capture those moments of wonder,” he told The Huffington Post in an email.

Murray’s photos of Emerson depict the little boy in moments of pure innocence and joy. Drawing inspiration from some of his own favorite childhood stories like Winnie the Pooh, Murray’s photos “revolve around the idea of adventure and discovery,” he explained.

“Our kids are bombarded by digital media, lights, and plastic. I wanted something closer to what child is all about, wonder and discovery,” Murray added. “That’s why we try to go to a park, or explore nature as often as we can.”

Today, 2-year-old Emerson is in good health and no longer needs to take anti-seizure meds. This past February, the toddler became a big brother to “his partner in crime” Greyson.

The below images are just a sample of Adrian Murray’s beautiful photos of his happy little boys on adventures. You can view more on his photography site, Facebook page, and 500px profile.

Dear Mom: My Son’s Hilarious Summer Camp Letter

2014-06-07-Campphoto.jpg

Last year my 8-year-old son went to summer camp. It was the first time he had been away from home for more than a night. An hour after he left, I missed him. By the time I went to bed, I found myself wandering into his bedroom, just to feel close to him. As the days passed, I wrote to him daily. Each hour dragged as I’d wait for the mailman, hoping and praying for just one letter from him. By that point I missed him so much, I began to imagine what he might write to me. I fantasized I’d receive a letter something like this:

Dear Mom,

Thank you so much for letting me go to camp. I have learned so many cool things, like how to take a fish off the hook, tie sailing knots, and even how to groom a horse. Thanks for packing the sunscreen. I’ve been out on the lake a lot, so it has really come in handy. You sure think of everything! Since it’s been so hot, I’ve been drinking tons of water! See? I really listen to all your good advice.

The other boys here are really smart and nice. I’m making some lifelong friends I will cherish forever. We’ve had fun learning camp songs, playing cards, and catching frogs in our free time. During quiet time, I read the book you sent along. What a great selection! And just because you’re my mom, I made a special gift for you in arts and crafts!

I’m trying a lot of new foods, just like you suggested. You were right, the oatmeal at breakfast really isn’t bad when I add raisins. And don’t worry, Mom, I’ve been using all the manners you’ve taught me over the years.

We are camping under the stars tonight. I hope to see fireflies.

I love you,

W

xxoo

P.S. Tell my brothers I miss them!

Yesterday I received a letter. It’s just slightly different from what I imagined:
