Ronnie Magro Ortiz and On-Off Again Girlfriend Jen Harley Vacation Together with Their Daughter

Jersey Shore’s Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is squeezing in a little vacation time with his on-again-off-again girlfriend Jen Harley and their daughter Ariana Skye.

While enjoying themselves in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Friday, Harley, 31, shared a photograph of the pair posing together in their beach attire. Despite the pair’s volatile history, the 32-year-old reality star draped his arm around Harley’s shoulder in the image.

Also along for the sun-filled trip? Their 4-month-old daughter, who’s no stranger to accompanying her parents to the beach.

The proud mother of two shared an adorable photograph on Saturday of little Ariana flashing the camera a big smile while wearing a tie-dye dress that showed off her love for San Juan, which was likely picked up as a souvenir.

While lounging on the beach with their daughter, Ortiz-Magro was also on hand to watch over their little one as she had a bottle of milk.

“Living that beach life,” Harley wrote alongside a photograph of the doting dad.

Ahead of their trip together, Harley shared a slideshow of photographs earlier this month from the week she spent in New Jersey with the Jersey Shore star and their daughter while filming season 2 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation. The images included two sweet selfies of her and Ortiz-Magro.

“#squadgoals #bestfriends #4thofjulyweekend #jerseyshore #arianasky,” she captioned the post, which has since been deleted.

The couple has been off and on since welcoming their daughter on April 3 — while also making headlines for their explosive altercations.

Most recently, Harley was arrested and charged with domestic battery on June 24 in Las Vegas after an incident in which it was alleged that she briefly dragged her ex with her car while their infant daughter was in the backseat.

She was released from the Clark County Detention Center the following day after posting the $ 3,000 bail; Last week, the Clark County District Attorney’s Office confirmed to PEOPLE that there was “insufficient evidence” to prosecute her.

Since the incident, Ortiz-Magro and Harley have been spending time as a family as they attempt to work through their issues.

“They are co-parenting and trying to coexist and be the best parents they can be,” a source recently told PEOPLE. “They are taking things slow. I wouldn’t be surprised if they ended up back together.”

Sean Lowe Opens Up About 4-Week-Old Son Isaiah: I’m Excited to Watch My Boys ‘Grow Up Together’

Father’s Day is just around the corner and this year, Sean Lowe is celebrating two times over.

“I take so much pride in fatherhood,” the 34-year-old former Bachelor — who welcomed his second child with wife Catherine Giudici Lowe, son Isaiah Hendrix, on May 18 — tells PEOPLE.

Lowe and his wife Catherine are also parents to Samuel Thomas, 2 next month. And just like with their first child, they didn’t find out the sex of the new baby until his birth.

“I was very surprised that we had another boy. I couldn’t believe it for a second when I saw after he came out! I was mentally prepared to have a girl.”

Continues Lowe, “So far everyone is saying he looks like me. Which is great because with Samuel, everybody says he has his mama’s face and my coloring. So it’s nice that I have a kid who looks like me now.”

And the father of two says he’s excited to one day teach his boys some of the lessons he learned from his own dad.

“My dad was always the one who would rather do something himself rather than pay someone else to do it,” says Lowe, who has partnered with Lowe’s and CRAFTSMAN.

“I want to take that same spirit and instill it in my sons. It’s such a valuable tool to have — if something goes wrong, I can fix it myself! Not to mention I can have something to pass down to them. The CRAFTSMAN Mechanics Tool Set will last forever.”

RELATED: Catherine Giudici Lowe Feels “Absolutely Complete” After Son No. 2: “It’s Been So Surreal”

For now, the former reality star is grateful to be getting some stretches of snoozes (“Isaiah is a great sleeper!”) and treasuring the moments of brotherly bonding.

“Samuel constantly wants to give him kisses and Isaiah just lays there and takes it and never cries,” says Lowe. “He’s such a chill baby.”

“I just think it will be so fun to watch them grow up together and be best friends,” Lowe shares. “I’m really excited to watch the dynamic as these boys grow into men.”

RELATED VIDEO: Happy Father’s Day to Some of Our Favorite Dads!

As for the big day on Sunday, “I just want quality time with the kids and Catherine,” says Lowe. “There’s a donut shop down the street from us so we’ll walk down there as a family. And we might go to the community water park. It’s really hot in Dallas!”

Still, Lowe admits it sometimes feels “bizarre” to actually be a father. “I feel too immature to have a family sometimes,” he says with a laugh. “But our goal is to fill our home with laughter and love, and we do that every day.”

He explains, “It’s fun to be goofy, while still maintaining discipline. I crack a lot of jokes at Samuel’s expense. But he’s going to grow up with a good sense of humor and always knowing how much his dad loves him.”

Together Again! Lucy Hale Reunites with Her Pretty Little Liars Costar Ian Harding

Attention, Pretty Little Liars fans: Ezra and Aria are still going strong!

Lucy Hale shared a photo from a recent reunion with her former onscreen love interest Ian Harding on Instagram Sunday. The photo, which appears to have been taken in a hotel lobby, shows both stars dressed for the cold weather: the 28-year-old actress donning a long grey jacket and blue baseball cap, while Harding, 31, wears khaki pants, navy coat and a beanie.

“Look who I found in Chicago,” the Life Sentence star captioned her picture.

Pretty Little Liars wrapped its seven-season run on Freeform (previously ABC Family) last June with their characters tying the knot in the series finale after a complicated relationship.

Want to keep up on the latest from PEOPLE? Sign up for our daily newsletter to get our best stories of the day delivered straight to your inbox.

PEOPLE caught up with Hale at The CW upfront in New York City last year, where she responded to Harding’s hilarious memoir revelation that he “flossed at least three times” and “gargled between every take” while shooting their first kiss in PLL‘s pilot.

“Not towards the end, he didn’t!” said the Truth or Dare star with a laugh. “I think when we started working with each other we were both super nervous and making sure we were in tip-top shape, and then towards the end we didn’t care.”

RELATED: Sasha Pieterse ‘Can’t Wait’ to Film Pretty Little Liars Spin-Off

Hale did admit to having a crush on Harding IRL during season one of the series during a game of “Never Have I Ever” with her PLL castmates on Ellen DeGeneres’ online “Show Me More Show.”

“Whatever, I was 20,” she revealed after initially saying she wasn’t going to name her love interest.

Alicia Silverstone and Husband Christopher Jarecki Split After 20 Years Together: Report

Alicia Silverstone and husband Christopher Jarecki have split after 20 years together, according to multiple reports.

“They still deeply love and respect each other and remain very close friends but have mutually decided to separate after being together for 20 years. They have a son together who they will continue to co-parent,” Silverstone’s rep said in a statement.

The Clueless actress, 41, and the musician have one child together, 6-year-old son, Bear Blu.

Silverstone’s rep did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The pair have been married since June 2005, when they tied the knot in a private lakeside ceremony in Lake Tahoe.

During the couple’s intimate wedding, Silverstone and Jarecki exchanged vows while barefoot on the beach — and at midnight, the couple’s friends and family gathered around a campfire to celebrate the happy day by singing Beatles songs and eating vegan hamburgers.

Opening up to PEOPLE later that month, Silverstone explained that Jarecki had popped the question a year earlier, and that it was the “most beautiful proposal” she could have asked for.

“He was waiting on our old wicker love seat, ring in hand, with the most beautiful proposal any best friend could ever give,” she explained.

The actress also revealed that waiting to kiss him until the end of the ceremony had been a big struggle for her. “It was so hard not to kiss him during the ceremony! I was going out of my mind,” she said. “So the kiss at the end was amazing.”

Exes Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Vacation Together in the Maldives

Nearly a year after they called it quits, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are again fueling reconciliation rumors after they were spotted vacationing together in the Maldives earlier this week.

The exes — who kissed and held hands at an Ed Sheeran concert last August months after they officially split — were snapped by fans enjoying a meal in the tropical country while staying relatively incognito in baseball caps. A source tells PEOPLE the pair stayed at the luxurious Amilla Fushi Resort.

Addressing rumors that she and Bloom, 40, had rekindled their romance last summer, Perry told The Morning Mashup that there are people who “are in and out of your life.”

“It’s nice to keep people you love around you. When you get older, lines get blurred,” added the singer, 33, who was first seen getting flirty with Bloom at a Golden Globes after party in 2016. “And you know what, I’m really busy. I’m about to go on tour for another year.”

After dating for around a year, Perry and Bloom — who shares 6-year-old son Flynn with ex-wife Miranda Kerr — announced they were “taking respectful, loving space” late last February just days after they posed for a photo together at Vanity Fair’s annual Oscars after party.

Latino Celebrities Travel to Puerto Rico Together for Hurricane Maria Relief

Brought to you by the editors of People en Español.

Some of the biggest Latin stars in the entertainment industry embarked on a flight to Puerto Rico on Monday to help the victims of Hurricane Maria.

Ricky Martin, Nicky Jam, Luis Fonsi, Chayanne, Gloria Estefan and Emilio Estefan, among others, boarded Jet Blue’s “Precious Airplane” in Fort Lauderdale bound for San Juan, Puerto Rico. Aside from the celebs, the aircraft carried a load of food, water and other necessities that will be distributed to those in need.

“The idea is to bring help to the people of Puerto Rico and at the same time, bring awareness to the entire world about the humanitarian crisis that is happening on the island,” said Armando Correa, editor in chief of People en Español, who also took part in the trip.

“More than one million Puerto Ricans are without drinking water, without electricity, without food,” he added. “In the United States, many have been unable to communicate with their families for more than a week, without knowing the conditions they have been in since the hurricane.”

The flight arrived at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport early Monday morning and immediately upon arrival, the celebrity passengers attended a press conference at the terminal.

Earlier in the morning, the stars started sharing photos of their journey to the island. “Here we go #PuertoRico #allin4PR,” Ricky Martin wrote in a caption beside a photo of him sitting near Chayanne, Nicky Jam and Luis Fonsi on the aircraft. Fonsi captioned a photo on his Instagram page, “FINALLY WE ARRIVED. It’s time to work. United we are bigger.”

The trip was sponsored by Jetblue’s 100x35JetBlue program, which the airline established to help relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. The name of the program refers to the company’s commitment to aiding Puerto Rico over the next 100 days through 35 initiatives “to support the urgent needs of their crewmembers and customers as well as communities in Puerto Rico,” their website reads.

Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Share Sweet Snapchat Video Together Amid Pregnancy News

Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson know how to lean on each other!

On Saturday, Thompson, 26, shared an sweet video of the two of them together, where he adorably complained about being too full while leaning against his girlfriend’s pregnant belly.

“I ate too much,” he complains at the start of the video, after previously documenting their dinner date with friends.

“Your tummy hurts?” Kardashian, 33, asks while rubbing his chest.

“My tummy hurts, ” he confirmed, as the Revenge Body star gently laughed.

RELATED VIDEO: Khloe Kardashian Is Pregnant! Revealed Days After Kylie Jenner’s Big Baby News

On Tuesday, PEOPLE confirmed the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was expecting her first child with Thompson.

“Yes, Khloé and Tristan are expecting and they are absolutely thrilled,” a source told PEOPLE. “This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle.

Khloé is one of three Kardashian-Jenner siblings expecting a child.

Khloé’s pregnancy news came just days after sources confirmed to PEOPLE that Kylie Jenner was expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend Travis Scott.

On Thursday, Kim Kardashian West confirmed that she and her husband Kanye West were expecting their third child via surrogate in a teaser trailer for season 14 of KUWTK.

“Tristan and I definitely talk about starting a family,” the Good American designer remarked during a trailer for season 13 of KUWTK. “He wants to have about five or six kids with me and that’s lovely. We could start at one and we could grow from there.”

In an interview with YOU magazine in August, she elaborated, saying, “Tristan is a great dad and he definitely wants more children, but we both feel that it will happen when the time is right. We’re still in a new relationship and I love us having time together.”

In Dec. 2016, Thompson had his first son — Prince Oliver — with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.

Kevin Hart and Eniko Parrish Step Out Together for First Time Since Apology Video

Kevin Hart and Eniko Parrish are standing together.

The married couple were spotted out for lunch together in the Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles on Tuesday, marking the first time they’ve been seen together since Hart posted his emotional apology video on Saturday following an alleged extortion attempt.

Dressed casually, the pair arrived at a restaurant together but showed no overt signs of PDA. They also seemed to be in the middle of an amicable conversation on their way out.

Over the weekend, the 38-year-old comedian asked his pregnant wife and children for forgiveness in a video apology posted to Instagram, in which he claimed that there was someone who was trying to make “financial gain” from his misbehavior.

Reports surfaced over the weekend that federal officials are investigating an alleged blackmail attempt that reportedly includes a “sexually provocative” video of Hart.

“I made a bad error in judgement and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did,” he admitted in the clip.

The apology seemed to have already worked for his wife over the weekend, as Parrish, 33, was seen wearing her enormous wedding ring while taking the family dog to the vet on Sunday.

TMZ reports that FBI agents believe they know the identity of a person who allegedly demanded money to not leak the video, which features a man who may or may not be Hart getting close with a woman at a club and then in a bedroom.

Officials have reportedly identified the woman in the alleged footage, and believe she or someone else attempted to blackmail the star.

Sources told PEOPLE that Parrish is supporting her husband amid the allegations and that “there is absolutely no divorce talk.”

“She obviously knows about the cheating allegations. To her, Kevin is a great husband,” said the source. “Eniko is aware that Kevin has been accused of being a ladies’ man. She doesn’t care. He is her husband and he always comes home to her.”

RELATED: Kevin Hart Apologizes to His Wife and Kids in Emotional Video After Alleged Extortion

Hart, who’s dad to daughter Heaven, 12, and son Hendrix, 9, with ex-wife Torrei and is expecting a baby boy with Parrish, added that there are no excuses for his “wrong behavior” and described the situation as a “s—-y moment.”

According to a source, the family is focused on seeing the investigation through. “The legal issue seems to be more important to the family than any sexual gossip that goes along with it,” the source said.

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna Are ‘Getting Along, But Are Not Officially Back Together,’ Says Source

For Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna, being good parents to baby Dream is their first priority.

Since their split in February, the exes have put the drama aside and are spending more time with one another — making it their goal to raise their daughter together peacefully.

“Rob and Chyna are getting along, but are not officially back together,” a source close to Kardashian, 30, tells PEOPLE.

“They are spending a lot of time together. There hasn’t been any drama,” the source continues. “They want to get along and raise Dream together. That’s their main goal.”

RELATED VIDEO: Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna Split

Kardashian proposed to Chyna, 29, in April 2016, and a month later, they announced they were expecting their first child. (They welcomed Dream last November.) But after a year of ups and downs, including screaming matches, a paternity test, and a fight that nearly ended their engagement right before Christmas, their romance finally came to an end.

Though the former couple is working on mending their relationship in the four months since they parted, the possibility that Chyna and the Arthur George sock designer could get back together remains up in the air.

“They are both complicated people. It’s very possible they will get back together,” says the source, who adds, “But it’s also possible that they will have another epic fight. For now, things are peaceful and everyone is happy.”

FROM PEN: Andy Cohen’s Top 5 Most Revealing Plead the Fifth Answers

Last month, PEOPLE confirmed that Kardashian was dating 26-year-old Mehgan James, who has appeared on Oxygen’s Bad Girl’s Club and VH1’s Basketball Wives LA. But just a day after multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE that James’ relationship with Kardashian was budding, he denied having any romantic ties to the reality star — or even knowing her.

“The whole Meghan drama was bizarre. They were seeing each other,” the Kardashian source confirms. “But Rob clearly was thinking that he wanted to get back with Chyna too.”

“Any talk about Rob dating will make Chyna lose it,” adds the source. “It seems Rob was denying to keep peace with Chyna.”

While their future as a couple remains unknown, it is evident that the pair still has love for one another.

At the end of last month, Kardashian declared his love for the mother of his only child in a heartwarming tribute on Instagram.

“On my first episode of Rob’s Random Cornball Thoughts is This young lady who grew up to be the woman I love and the mother of my child,” Kardashian captioned a throwback photo of Chyna. “She is beautiful and gave me my first child. @blacchyna.”

‘Bachelor’ Stars Ben Higgins And Lauren Bushnell Split After Over A Year Together

Sadly, another “Bachelor” couple has ended their engagement. 

Ben Higgins, who starred on Season 20 of the ABC franchise, has officially called it quits with his fiancée, Lauren Bushnell, according to People. The two shared a statement on their split: 

It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision to go our separate ways. We feel fortunate for the time we had together, and will remain friends with much love and respect for one another. We wish nothing but the best for each other, and ask for your support and understanding at this time.

Cue lots of tears.

Higgins and Bushnell got engaged ahead of the season premiere of “The Bachelor” Season 20 in January 2016. Although they had to keep their relationship a secret while the season played out on the air, it was pretty clear that Higgins had a special bond with Bushnell right from the beginning. She beat out runner-up ― and future Bachelorette ― JoJo Fletcher for his heart and a Neil Lane diamond ring. 

Rumors of a split have been floating around for months, but Higgins shot down any speculation with an Instagram post in February. 

In October 2016, the couple revealed they were in couples therapy, with Higgins telling People at the time, “We’re not the perfect couple. Far from it! But we are trying really hard, and we love each other a lot … ’Bachelor’ or not, our life is not easy to navigate. We have our struggles. But we won’t give up. And for every argument, we’re stronger for it.”

The pair, who debuted their own reality series, “Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?,” on Freeform in October, moved in together last April in Denver, Colorado. (Clearly, the show won’t be back for a Season 2, but at least we still have the Ferguson twins!) 

Bushnell, who’s now a lifestyle blogger, hasn’t posted a photo of Higgins in a month. The former Bachelor, however, just shared a picture of his former love last week, writing, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. -Martin Luther King Jr.” @laurenbushnell continues to spread love while some feel it is their responsibility to spread hate, she is a light in this world. Proud of my gal, @laurenbushnell got me .”

Duchess of Cambridge Meets With Heads Together Runners

CASUAL KATE: Ahead of the annual London Marathon, which takes place this Sunday, the Duchess of Cambridge has stepped out and met with runners who are supporting the Heads Together campaign on Wednesday.

Londoners Stand Together After Parliament Terror Attack: ‘We Are United and We Are Not Afraid’

Following Wednesday’s deadly attack in the U.K. near Parliament, Londoners are making their strength known in the face of terror.

At least four people were killed — including a police officer — and 20 more injured after the car and knife attack, which Metropolitan Police believe was orchestrated by a sole individual, who is among the dead. Authorities have described the violence as terrorism.

As the investigation continues, city residents took to social media to band together, embracing former Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s iconic adage, “Keep buggering on.”

On Twitter, heartbroken users shared a re-imagined tube logo emblazoned with the phrase, “We are not afraid.”

Echoed one woman, “The love and bravery shown today was far greater than any hate. We are united and we are not afraid.”

Another assured that she wouldn’t let fear keep her from the capital city, writing, “I will be out & about shopping & carrying on with daily life in LONDON this Saturday #TheseColoursDontRun  #IstandWithLondon.”

“London’s just going about its business,” said another Twitter user. “Pubs and theatres still full. Trains packed. Everyone looks a little sadder but #WeAreNotAfraid.”

A group of schoolchildren from St John & St Francis Church School in Bridgwater who were touring Parliament at the time of the attack sought to bring joy through music, according to the school’s Twitter account.

“We’re all sat in the centre of the #housesofparliament,” the school wrote. “We are safe, happy and lightening the mood with a sing song.”

In a video message, London Mayor Sadiq Khan similarly asserted, “Our city remains one of the safest in the world.”

“London is the greatest city in the world and we stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life,” Khan said.

He continued, “We have, and we always will. Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism.”

Trump’s Tie Was Held Together With Tape At The Inauguration

In December, then-president-elect Donald Trump got a lot of flack after a photographer and an unfortunate breeze revealed that he held his tie together with sticky tape.

New photos from Friday’s inauguration reveal that the tape was not a one-time sartorial decision. The billionaire once again opted for holding his tie together with tape as he was sworn in to be president of the United States.

The tape wasn’t the only issue, though. Numerous people pointed out on social media that Trump’s tie was abnormally long.

Stephen Colbert also made fun of Trump’s tie length, saying, “You can use it for all sorts of things, for hiding an erection for instance, which I will not have for four years now.”

Couple Married 63 Years Dies Hours Apart: ‘I Know They Are Together’

After 63 years of marriage, Dolores and Trent Winstead of Nashville, Tennessee just couldn’t bear to be apart. 

On Dec. 9 at around 9 p.m., Dolores, 83, died after suffering a brain aneurysm; the following afternoon at 4 p.m., Trent, 88, died after his heart had weakened from kidney failure.

“I know they are together and happy for eternity, and that is a comfort to me,” the couple’s daughter Sheryl Winstead told Today. “But I never in a million years dreamed I would walk out of the hospital without either one of them.”

The pair would have celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary in January.

When Trent was hospitalized at St. Thomas West earlier this month for kidney failure, Dolores was seemingly in good health. One day at the hospital, she appeared to have fallen asleep in a chair at Trent’s bedside after complaining of a bad headache. It wasn’t until Sheryl tried to wake her up and couldn’t that the family realized something was wrong. Nurses tried to revive Dolores but her brain activity was gone after the aneurysm, according to the Washington Post. They hooked her up to a ventilator and eventually moved her and Trent into the same room. 

For their final hours together, the couple held hands as they laid in beds side by side.

The couple has two kids, three grandkids and eight great-grandkids. Their son Eddie was the one who told Trent that Dolores had died. 

“I had to lean down next to him, and just kind of tell him, ‘Mom has passed,’” Eddie told ABC affiliate WKRN. “When that happened, it was kind of like his whole spirit just changed.”

He continued, “I told him, I said, ‘Dad, if you want to go be with Mom, that’s quite alright with Sheryl and I.’”

Losing both Trent and Dolores in such a short span of time was undoubtedly difficult for the family, but knowing the couple didn’t have to live long without one another brought them some comfort. 

“It’s like God made their travel arrangements and they went together,” Sheryl told WKRN. “It’s just really sweet.”

Watch the video above for more on their story.

Damir Doma to Show Men’s and Women’s Together in June

Just as a number of brands ranging from Ermenegildo Zegna, Bottega Veneta and Calvin Klein Collection to Costume National, Corneliani and No. 21 will, for different reasons, forgo the catwalk during Milan Fashion Week in June, Damir Doma has decided to show both his men’s and women’s collections on the runway.
“It took almost a year to make this decision but we think this will enable us to improve our deliveries and performances,” said Doma, who unified his women’s pre-fall and main collections into a single lineup in June. The Croatian designer said he will show the same number of men’s and women’s outfits. “The sales campaign will close in July and we will have the right amount of time to produce the collections and have them delivered in stores earlier than in the past.”
Doma also said that by showing together the two collections buyers might make more coherent purchases. “Men’s buyers used to focus on sportswear, while women’s buyers tend to look for special pieces,” he explained. “The image of the brand was not cohesive in the stores and it also turned out that women’s wear had a higher retail price point. I hope that, from now on, things will be more balanced.”

Reunited Punks L7’s Message To Millennials: ‘Get It Together, Step Up’

Everywhere a music fan turns these days, it feels like a band at their height in the ‘90s is reuniting — and the quality of the ensuing musical output has varied widely from inspired to “why?!”

But there have been few reunions met with as much exuberance of critics and fans alike than that of L7, the explosive all-female Los Angeles grunge-punk outfit fronted by the effervescent Donita Sparks and known for their trashing, high-energy songs like “Shitlist” and “Shove.”

it all started a couple of years back when Sparks began curating the band’s Facebook page, posting photos, fliers and other band ephemera she was in the process of digitizing. In that process, Sparks also came across many hours of videos the band had shot during their original run. She showed them to filmmaker Sarah Price and the group decided to pursue the creation of a documentary using the newly discovered footage, launching a successful $ 130,000 Kickstarter campaign to fund it. 

The fan response to the Kickstarter and Facebook posts was so deafening the band, whose original lineup had last performed together in 1996, decided to give live shows another go, playing their first show in almost two decades together in LA in May. They followed that show up with a run of 11 shows in Europe and are in the midst of a mini-tour of 15 U.S. cities, playing Riot Fest in Chicago earlier this month.

The response to L7’s resurrection, especially from fans so young they weren’t alive when the band’s most recent album was released in 1999, came as a surprise to Sparks, she admitted shortly before taking the stage in Chicago’s Douglas Park. Her band is a good place, she said.

“A lot of people are like, ‘L7? Who are they? Who cares?’ And other people are like, ‘Oh, my God, it’s fucking L7!’” Sparks said. “We’re kind of in this cool, weird spot that we dig. We don’t have to be known by the masses, we just want to be known by the cool people anyway. We don’t have to convince the squares that we are a decent band.”

Decent doesn’t even come close to doing the band justice. Sparks and her bandmates — Suzi Gardner, Jennifer Finch and Demetra “Dee” Plakas — ripped through 13 songs from their catalog over the course of a taut hourlong set that felt like one of the packed weekend’s loudest and most-anticipated. One would have never guessed they were watching a band that “peaked” some 20 years earlier.

Closing with the thrilling “Fast and Frightening,” the band delivered on a request they made of the stage’s sound tent earlier in the set: to “melt off their balls and titties, in a nice way.” 

As much as the shows have represented a family reunion of sorts for L7, the Riot Fest set was also a literal homecoming for half the band’s lineup, as both Plakas and Sparks were born in Chicago.

Growing up in the Chicago area, Sparks said she turned to bands like the Ramones, Blondie and the B-52s, all of whom represented a level of eccentricity and unapologetic weirdness that provided solace from her “square” suburban surroundings.

After high school, she spent a year working in downtown Chicago as a foot messenger for a photo lab to save up money to move to Los Angeles, where she launched L7 with Gardner in 1985. The hotel the band was staying at while in Chicago actually overlooked the office building where Sparks delivered artwork on foot to advertising agencies. 

In Los Angeles, the band worked to develop their signature sound, a fiery blend of punk, metal and grunge elements, and were signed by Sub Pop, the label known for breaking artists like Nirvana and helping create Seattle-style grunge.

L7 didn’t quite breakthrough to the mainstream until their third album, 1992’s “Bricks Are Heavy.” They were even featured in a John Waters film, playing the part of a band called “Camel Lips” alongside Kathleen Turner in 1994’s “Serial Mom.”

They went on to influence a whole generation of women-fronted bands associated with the riot grrrl movement not only because of their music but also because of their politics. The band founded Rock for Choice, a decade-long series of feminist, pro-choice women’s rights benefit shows.

Sparks has stated in other interviews that she can see the need to revive the Rock for Choice series. Still, she admitted that she is disappointed in what she perceives as a lack of younger artists today who are embracing political activism at a time when many of the same pressing questions that prompted benefits like Rock for Choice remain unanswered today.

She is particularly concerned about environmental issues and though she said she was thrilled by the Supreme Court’s decision this year on marriage equality, she quipped, “If we’re all underwater, who cares if you’re gay [and] getting married.”

“I scratch my head and wonder why aren’t these younger bands doing benefits, I mean, are they? Are any of them organizing?” Sparks said. “We fucking built [Rock for Choice] from scratch. The Beastie Boys built the Free Tibet series from scratch. Are any young bands stepping up because I don’t know, they should be. I don’t get it. It’s needed now more than ever. Basically we’re the fucking Titanic sinking on every issue that we can think of. Millennials, get it together. Step up!” 

While Sparks is happy to see more popular artists embracing the term “feminist” she added that she would like to see more action in that arena as well.

“They probably are feminists but I don’t know how much that is speaking to teenage women, I really don’t. I mean, rock and roll women,” Sparks said. “If I were a teenager I’d be looking for ways to get my aggression and frustration out. I’d really just want to scream and yell at a concert because there’s a lot of stuff to be pissed off about.”

As for L7’s future past a string of shows on the west coast in November, Sparks said there are currently “no plans” for the band to create new music and that they have been exclusively focused on the live shows and the forthcoming documentary. Beyond that, she added, “you never know.” 

“We’re not being salespeople to get people to like our new album,” Sparks said. “We don’t care. We’re playing shit that’s 20 years old that people really like and they want to hear. It’s been a love fest.”

Here Are Gifs Of All The Times Alicia And Kalinda Drank Together On ‘The Good Wife’

Warning: This post contains spoilers from the first six seasons of “The Good Wife,” up to and including the season 6 finale.

When the sixth season of “The Good Wife” came to a close on May 10, it marked the end of one of TV’s most powerful, complicated relationships: Kalicia. Up until this point of the marvelous show, attorney Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) and investigator Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjabi) were alternately the best of friends and the bitterest of enemies. There were runs of episodes where they almost always shown together, and much longer runs where they were never in the same room. Gossip around Hollywood chalks the latter up to a vicious but completely mysterious fight between Margulies and Panjabi, which only makes the on-screen relationship between the two characters more fascinating.

Amidst all the turmoil, there was one thing you could count on with these two: They would drink. They loved drinking, a trait they share with several other powerful female protagonists on TV dramas.

So to commemorate their glorious friendship, The Huffington Post combed through six seasons of “The Good Wife” to find all the scenes where Kalicia drank together. Here they are.

2015-05-18-1431987861-8079182-Season1Episode1AliciaDrinking.gif

The ritual began in the show’s pilot, meaning it predates even the appearance of such staple characters of the show as Eli Gold (Alan Cumming) and David Lee (Zach Grenier). That’s how integral it is to the show! In this first episode, Alicia and Kalinda work together to crack a difficult murder case involving a faked carjacking. After Alicia presents their killer evidence, and the jury goes out to deliberate, Kalinda tells her that it’s a Stern Lockhart & Gardner tradition for lawyers to take tequila shots after their first jury trial.

2015-05-18-1431987898-1029929-Season1Episode1KalindaDrinking.gif

After Alicia takes her shot, Kalinda reveals that this was a trick: no such tradition exists. For a moment, it seems like Kalinda won’t drink her tequila. But then, of course, she does. Alicia smiles.

2015-05-18-1431987934-7707923-Season1Episode11KalindaDrinking.gif

The next nine episodes feature lots of interactions between Alicia and Kalinda, but none of them involve alcohol, sadly. They don’t drink together again until the 11th episode. Even then, it’s not in a bar, but in a room in their office: they drink beer and eat kettle corn while watching TV news related to the two cases of the week.

2015-05-18-1431988039-8472490-Season1Episode14KalindaDrinking.gif

In episode 14, though, Alicia and Kalinda hit the bar again, because they have some personal matters to discuss. (Glenn Childs has asked Kalinda to testify against Alicia’s husband Peter.) This time, Kalinda orders a dark beer…

2015-05-18-1431988092-6262329-Season1Episode14AliciaDrinking.gif

…while Alicia drinks what looks like tequila again. But she sips it instead of shooting it.

2015-05-18-1431988156-9689967-Season1Episode21AliciaDrinking.gif

This drinking session apparently goes well, because they go to another bar in episode 21. Alicia drinks what appears to be a martini with olives.

2015-05-18-1431988182-9482663-Season1Episode21KalindaDrinking.gif

Kalinda gets another dark beer.

2015-05-18-1431988228-9069830-Season1Episode22BothDrinking.gif

The very next episode, the second-to-last of season 1, opens with Alicia and Cary finding out that Alicia got the one full-time position they had been competing for all season. Kalinda waits for Alicia down the hall and, knowing that Alicia will likely feel crummy for beating out Cary, insists that they go to get drinks. They start by ordering two tequila shots in a row.

2015-05-18-1431988316-6076505-Season1Episode22AliciaDrinking.gif

They keep drinking, as is evident from the plethora of glasses that accumulate on the bar top.

2015-05-18-1431988346-6286008-Season1Episode22KalindaDrinking.gif

All that tequila gets them pretty wasted. A cute, younger guy hits on them, sending them into a giggle fit. He buys them yet another round of drinks.

2015-05-18-1431988373-3979951-Season1Episode22AliciaDrinkingAgain.gif

These extra drinks send them into the truthbomb-dropping stage of drunkenness, prompting Alicia to ask Kalinda whether she’s a lesbian.

Kalinda refuses to answer, much to Alicia’s chagrin. But then a call to Alicia’s cell phone saves her. Will tells Alicia she has to go see a client, so she composes herself and goes to Colin Sweeney’s house, where she finds him handcuffed to a dead female body. Alicia maintains admirable composure, considering her inebriation. Close call!

2015-05-18-1431988410-1505446-Season2Episode6KalindaDrinking.gif

Alicia and Kalinda next drink together in the sixth episode of season two, at an office party to celebrate a huge class action settlement. While drinking champagne, Alicia notes that Kalinda doesn’t look as happy as everyone else at the firm.

2015-05-18-1431988573-2916275-Season2Episode9AliciaDrinking.gif

Just three episodes later, in “Nine Hours,” one of the best episodes of the entire series, Alicia and Kalinda work on a stressful death row case from Alicia’s apartment. At a particularly trying moment, Alicia grabs them two beers out of the fridge.

2015-05-18-1431988636-9835993-Season2Episode9BothDrinking.gif

They drink them on Alicia’s bed. Slash fic alert!

2015-05-18-1431989198-858921-Season2Episode17BothDrinking.gif

They actually only visit a bar one time in the second season, in the 17th episode. They return to their beloved tequila shots.

A couple episodes later, Alicia discovers that Kalinda had slept with Peter, one time, many years ago, before they were friends. She’s completely furious. The revelation creates a rift between her and Peter — and, more importantly, between her and Kalinda. Throughout most of season 3, they only speak when work requires them to. Some have speculated that the real-life tiff between Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi first emerged around this time, though Margulies attributed the break to natural developments in the plot.

2015-05-18-1431989242-7090087-Season3Episode22KalindaDrinking.gif

In any case, they finally drink together again in the final episode of season 3. Though it begins as a kind of “Parent Trap” situation — Cary invited them both to the same bar — they actually manage to have a bit of fun.

2015-05-18-1431989277-8133208-Season3Episode22AliciaDrinking.gif

They even take tequila shots together!

2015-05-18-1431989347-2365038-Season4Episode6KalindaDrinking.gif

This bar visit sets off something of a renaissance in their friendship. They visit bars three times in the first half of season 4. They sip red wine and whiskey in episode 6.

2015-05-18-1431989381-2828868-Season4Episode9AliciaDrinking.gif

Cary joins them for some cocktails of an indeterminate nature in episode 9.

2015-05-18-1431989741-77136-Season4Episode10AliciaDrinking.gif

And then in episode 10, they go back to tequila shots. Kalinda is uncharacteristically late to the drinks in this episode, which worries Alicia.

2015-05-18-1431989768-8150781-Season4Episode10KalindaDrinking.gif

When she shows up, a few minutes after Alicia takes her first shot, she reveals that the drama surrounding her relationship with her erratic husband is over. What exactly happened to him is unclear, though when Kalinda says there’s no chance of his ever returning, it’s hard not to suspect that she killed him. He was a jerk, though, so this is an occasion for tequila.

2015-05-18-1431989799-8829444-Season4Episode11KalindaBringsWine.gif

One of the sweetest of their drinks sessions comes in the next episode, when Alicia is staying at a remote hotel while waiting to be allowed to depose a key witness in a case. Kalinda brings her fresh clothes — and a bottle of red wine.

2015-05-18-1431989853-9096019-Season4Episode11NeitherDrinking.gif

They lie in side-by-side beds glumly, chatting about this and that while drinking glasses of red wine. It’s cute. It seems like maybe they’re on track to be best friends again.

But then — nothing. In a big way.

Alicia and Kalinda see each other briefly in the next episode, but after that, don’t share a scene for more than two seasons after this hotel tryst. There’s no on-screen blowout to explain their bizarre separation, so this is when many (starting with Buzzfeed) speculated that Panjabi and Margulies got in some terrible fight. No one in the press has ever managed to figure out what transpired; it’s one of the best-kept secrets in Hollywood.

Whatever happened, though — and something must have happened — it kept Alicia and Kalinda apart right up until the very end of season 6.

2015-05-19-1432057374-1243209-Season6Episode21TugOfWar.gif

They sort of reunite in the season’s penultimate episode, after Kalinda has fled town to avoid being killed by Lemond Bishop, when Alicia thinks back to two times they’d met before. But the flashback scenes are either filmed in such a way that the two actresses may never have even been in the same room, or are repurposed footage from season 1. Fun fact, though: although this same tug-of-war over Alicia’s phone was shown in the drunken bar night in Season 1, Episode 22, the exact moment above is shot from two different camera angles in the two episodes.

2015-05-18-1431992398-6464942-Season6Episode22KalindaOrdering.gif

In the season 6 finale, they finally reunite for real. Kalinda surprises Alicia at a bar just before she leaves town for good. She orders two tequila shots for old time’s sake.

2015-05-18-1431992366-6225483-Season6Episode22AliciaDrinking.gif

Then, though, something curious happens: Most of the shots in the scene show only one of the two actresses clearly. For that reason, many people started to speculate that they hadn’t actually filmed most of it together.

2015-05-18-1431992454-480308-Season6Episode22BothDrinking.gif

On May 15, TVLine reported, based on some anonymous inside intel, that the scene had indeed been faked. The shots that show only one face clearly were filmed with body doubles filling in for the obscured actor, while Panjabi and Margulies filmed the shots that include both characters separately, and then the footage was merged together in post-production.

2015-05-18-1431992526-68236-Season6Episode22Goodbye.gif

The fact that Panjabi and Margulies couldn’t overcome their rumored enmity even for a day of filming made the parting — likely the last time these two characters ever see each other, since Kalinda is now officially on the lam — even sadder. Kalicia is, or, was, a friendship for the ages. These drinking buddies will live in our hearts and livers forever. And we look forward to revisiting the early season heyday of their relationship many times to come.

Romeo and Juliet, Together Again, Thanks to San Francisco Ballet

I couldn’t wait to see San Francisco Ballet‘s latest offering of Romeo and Juliet. As with most companies, SF Ballet artistic director Helgi Tomasson alternates the casting of the principal parts among several dancers, and I was looking forward to seeing Maria Kochetkova and Davit Karapetyan in the leads, as well as the incomparable Pascal Molat in the demanding role of Mercutio. But this is such a fine, deep company — at the first intermission, talking with my friend Jay Gilman, I said, “I would gladly come back to see the other casts.”

Jay said, “I would gladly come back to see this cast.”

When a company’s principal dancers and soloists are this excellent, your choice of casts often comes down to those whose acting ability or personal style/charisma grabs you. My all-time favorite Romeo will have to be Yuri Possokhov, now the company’s choreographer in residence. Trained in Moscow and a member of the Bolshoi and Royal Danish Ballets before he came to San Francisco, he had magnificent dancing and acting skills, plus, frankly, major sex appeal. (Please don’t think me shallow; I mean — Romeo.) When I saw him dance his last Romeo, in tears at the end, I looked over at my friend, Ivory, who burst out, “Does he know I’m single?!” To tell the truth, I can’t remember who danced Juliet that evening.

This year, tiny, doll-faced Kochetkova, who is a wonderfully proficient ballerina, danced Juliet so girlishly at first, more Clara in Nutcracker, I wondered how she would handle the transition to sudden love and lust for Romeo. She did, of course, starting with her frank interest in the masked Romeo at her father’s ball. By the time she and the handsome Karapetyan performed their gorgeous pas de deux, with all those airy, sensual lifts, in the balcony scene, it was sexual awakening before your very eyes, so to speak. Meantime, you knew the tall and manly Karapetyan, an older ladies man of a Romeo from his flirting with another in the first act, had fallen in love with Juliet’s lovely, innocent charm.

With its sex and violence, Romeo and Juliet is truly a classic ballet crowd pleaser, at least when done right. To break your heart, it really needs dancers who are adept at physical acting, too — dancers who can go beyond the surface of the story’s emotions and embody a notion of the characters. You want to feel their lust and love, anger and heartbreak, bone-deep pain over separation and (what seems, then is) death.

Similarly, all that swordplay between Montagues and Capulets — particularly between the Capulet hothead Tybalt and Romeo’s beloved friend Mercutio, followed by Romeo himself — should have the audience tense. So thank goodness Tomasson, who choreographed this version of R&J, enlisted actor, teacher, and fight expert Martino Pistone to help develop the “fight-scene choreography” and, each time SF Ballet performs this ballet, to train the male dancers in handling those weapons. Set in the Italian Renaissance — hence all those gorgeous velvets and brocades, flowing sleeves and intricate soft caps — this production uses weapons of the period: rapiers (long swords with double-edged blades) and daggers. Each cast’s Romeo, Tybalt and Mercutio practice together, of course; and if there’s a last-minute cast change, Tomasson says it’s nerve-inducing because each duo’s timing is a bit different.

While ballet versions of Shakespeare’s inimitable 1597 play have existed since the late 1700s, most productions now are set to the full-length score composed by Sergey Prokofiev in 1935, which certainly encourages an audience’s swooning and fear. At the same time, the musical passage during Mercutio’s death scene causes it to go on far too long. Though Molat perfectly expressed in movement and mime everything from braggadocio, to careless-seeming flirting, to faltering life, you can never feel the emotions you should when among them is a trace of impatience.

Even Romeo’s anguish at finding Juliet “dead” was overacted and overlong, which kept me from crying my usual buckets of tears. (Only Paris, the wealthy suitor whom Juliet’s parents were forcing her to marry, was dispatched quickly, there in the tomb.) But then Juliet awoke and discovered her Romeo, got up the nerve to stab herself, and crept over to die beside him. When, not yet quite dead, he weakly lifted and dropped his arm over her, my evening was complete.

While this is the last program of the season (and let’s hope SF Ballet brings this beautiful tale of woe back again soon), the company will be performing four short ballets in the city’s Stern Grove Festival, for free, this summer.

May 9, matinees May 9 and 10: San Francisco Ballet, War Memorial Opera House, 301 Van Ness Ave., S.F.; July 26: short ballets, Stern Grove, 415.865.2000.

Get Your Sh*# Together When Everything Is Falling Apart


“He who does not get fun and enjoyment out of every day… needs to reorganize his life.” ― George M. Adams


The other morning was a hilarious train wreck. I started my day with deliberate calm by getting myself completely up and in my workout clothes, applying a little makeup, and spending a good 40-minutes in meditation and prayer. It was going to be a day of flow and ease!

But then my four-year-old, Elena, threw a fit because she wanted her hair to look like Queen Elsa when she is at her coronation, not like Elsa in her ice castle. My girls started fighting about their respective hair-dos and other “important” issues from the movie Frozen, and my blood pressure started rising. To top that dramatic scene off, my little guy had then a stinky diaper to change. Suddenly the clock said 8:12 and my eldest starts school at 8:15. I started yelling, “Get your shoes on! Get in the car!” My mood was quickly shifting from a calm and peaceful to a wild and stormy.

We got in the car and my phone said it was 8:32. What the heck? There was no way it had taken over 15 minutes to get from the house to the garage. Turns out my stove clock had somehow been changed and my second-grader was late for school.

By the time I got one child to elementary school and the other to preschool across town, there wasn’t enough time to head to the gym before my meeting at 10:00 a.m. Resigned, I dropped my son off with my nanny and headed to work in my gym clothes to get myself prepped for my 10 o’ clock meeting. I hadn’t confirmed my 10 o’ clock so she didn’t know we were having it. But I had it in my calendar! Seriously?!

After a few deep breaths and restraining the desire to throw something across the room, I shed a few tears and reprimanded myself, “Why can’t I get my sh*t together?!”

I got myself a fresh cup of coffee and went to grab my mail. Much to my surprise, there was a most stunning gift from one of my clients who has become a dear friend. I had to implement my own teachings on mood shifting. I lit candles, played some beautiful soothing music, and reached out to a close friend. Then…I was feeling empowered and ready to rock my business.

Ever have a day like this? You mustn’t feel alone because we all have. For me, there’s a sense of camaraderie in knowing I’m not alone that I am so grateful for. I keep re-learning that the important thing to do in these moments of uncontrollable insanity is try everything in my power to turn the tide of frustration and regain control.

I’ve listed 6 tips for avoiding or rebounding from days like this (and always want to know what works for you!):

1) Review your calendar at night or early in the morning so you have a clear idea of what your day entails. Schedule in 20 minutes before meetings so you can deliberately focus on being prepared and in the right mindset. I like to block out five minutes for meditating and another five for catching up on notes from our last meeting.

2) Do everything in your power to make your mornings flow and start your day right. Prepare your kids clothes the night before and wake up early enough to have yourself ready before everyone else. You will start your day rocking! I like to play fun music in the kitchen to get everyone in a good mood (obviously didn’t work this morning but it usually does!)

3) Sleep! The crazy kinds of days are much more frequent when you’re exhausted. We had a few friends over for dinner last night and my kids were up a little later than usual, hence the morning meltdowns. I am more prone to meltdowns when I’m tired too. Aren’t you?

4) Lean on your friends. After my debacle this morning, I called my dear friend to vent. It felt like confession, just getting off my chest how ridiculous my morning had gone. She helped me see the situation as funny, shared a similar morning from her experiences, and we laughed together. Talk about the ultimate mood shifter! That, combined with the stunning surprise gift that arrived, made me incredibly grateful for my amazing friends and family who give me the strength to rebound after the tough moments.

5) Organize your life. Everything will flow better when our lives are organized. At work, keep your emails, files, and notes in order and under control. Research how the businesswomen you admire keep their businesses organized, and try out their tactics. I keep trying various techniques and technologies, but I’ve got a system down (another blog coming on that!). The same goes for my home. The only way I can manage my burgeoning business as a single mom is to keep every aspect of my life as orderly as possible. Do what you can, and remember that each day is a chance to start over.

6) Pull yourself together aesthetically. Sounds silly, but it’s true. The days when I look disheveled, I experience more internal chaos. The more I feel sharp and put together, the more I am able to become am effective businesswoman and powerful, happy mama. Some days it’s as simple as lipstick! Other days require a shower, hair fixing, AND lipstick.

Sometimes we just have days that are more challenging – especially when kids are involved – and we simply need to go with the flow, doing everything in our power to keep calm and in a cheerful mood.

How do you keep your life “put together” and organized? Please share your tips with me and other readers. We’re all in this together!

Strangers Rally Together To Rescue Teen Driver Trapped In Flipped-Over SUV In River

These teens are lucky to be alive.

Three young men, ages 16 and 17, were in an SUV, speeding down a highway in Salt Lake City last Thursday, according to Fox13. In an attempt to avoid cars that were stopped at a traffic light, the driver swerved around the other vehicles and crashed into the Jordan River, with the truck landing on its roof, Deseret News reported.

“I saw it. The vehicle exploded in front of me right there, just pieces and parts. It’s like nothing you would see in your entire life,” witness Brian Adams told Fox13 of the wreck.

Strangers then jumped into the river, flipped the SUV over and helped save the teens.

We have three teenage boys that went to the hospital. It would have been entirely different if those people hadn’t been here,” Lt. Brian Burvis of the Salt Lake City Police Department told ABC4.

When the truck crashed, a couple ran to the river and fished the passengers out, according to the outlet. More people started piling in the water to help save the teen driver, who was stuck behind the steering wheel, and had been underwater for a few minutes, KUTV reported.

The bystanders were able to turn the truck over to its upright position to get the driver above water, while the fire department was able to remove the teen from the vehicle, the outlet reported.

Ten people jumped down into the water. Just bystanders that saw it happen, just flipped it over so that he wouldn’t die,” Adams told ABC4 of the effort to save the driver.

The three teens were brought to the hospital and are expected to make a full recovery, thanks, in part, to the strangers’ teamwork.

It was just very, very lucky,” Burvis told Deseret News.

Kim Gordon And Arcade Fire Are In A Short Film Together, Commence Collective Squee

It’s true, the noise rock woman of your dreams and members of that Canadian indie sextet that made disco cool again are in a short film together. It is, as one might expect, deliriously creepy and gorgeous.

With equal bits Dali and Dada, the short film by Marcel Dzama, titled “Une Danse Des Bouffons (The Jester’s Dance),” premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Kim Gordon stars in it, while Arcade Fire’s Will Butler, Jeremy Gara, and Tim Kingsbury helped score the black-and-white bit of silent cinema.

When this project came along, I thought maybe [Kim Gordon would] be interested and I asked her and she surprisingly said yes. So I was very happy,” Dzama explained to The Huffington Post last September. “There was actually a scene where I was going to have Kim sing a disco song in it. We made this whole disco song that was really great, but I got shy about asking Kim to sing. So then I didn’t put that part in the film.”

Well, we’re pretty sure the men of Arcade Fire can make up for the lack of Gordon-crooned disco in their own brand of ethereal soundscapes. Check out the trailer for the Dzama masterpiece below. The music will released as a 7″ via The Believer magazine. So we can all be excited about that.

When Is The Right Time To Move In Together? Survey Says…

It’s the age-old question that consistently plagues couples: when is the right time to move-in together?

A lot of unknowns come into play here, which makes the decision so much more difficult. Is it too soon? Will it save me money? Will it cost me money? Will it hurt our relationship? What if he/she discovers I’m actually a hoarder of Cat Fancy?

The folks at Rent.com wanted to get to the bottom of this and asked 1,000 cohabiting renters their thoughts on how long couples should date before making the big move.

According to the survey, 37 percent said six months to a year is an appropriate amount of time, 29 percent said more than one year, and 18 percent said to wait until after marriage. You can see all the results in the infographic below.

But what happened once these couples made the move? Was it all butterflies and rainbows?

Once couples shacked up, 63 percent said they rarely have a night with just their friends, and 58 percents said weekends are spent staying home with their S.O.

And though 27 percent of respondents said they moved in together within less than six months of dating, only seven percent of people surveyed recommended doing that.

However, on the bright side, almost half of those surveyed said the upside to moving in was spending more time with their loved one. And 32 percent said moving in together helped them realize they had found “the one.”

What do you think? What’s the right time to say “I do… want to move in with you?”

The Cute Food Ritual That Keeps This Couple Together

Pizza is a many-splendored thing. And for one Los Angeles couple, it’s also the very thing that keeps their marriage together.

Tina Sugandh and Tarz Ludwigsen, who starred on the Bravo reality show “Newlyweds: The First Year”, stopped by HuffPost Live on Friday to discuss their love contract — a legal document that establishes ground rules about how partners will behave within the relationship. One of their most important tenets? Pizza Fridays.

Article 4.4 of the contract states that they will continue having a “pizza picnic” at home every Friday night. Additionally, both parties “agree to keep this time free from all phone calls and other interruptions. No friends or business colleagues will be invited to Pizza Fridays.”

In the interview, Sugandh explained to host Ricky Camilleri why they take this lighthearted tradition so seriously.

“It’s very very easy to say, ‘Oh, I want to hang out with my sister. She’s having a thing on Friday night.’ Or ‘My dad’s going to pop by on Friday night,'” she said. “But if you don’t save one little time slot a week for your husband, how do you bond? You need time to talk about your week and get it all out.”

For more on Sugandh and Ludwigsen’s relationship contract, watch the video above. Then, head here to watch the full segment.

You’re Married. Now What? How to Say ‘I Do’ to a Solid Financial Future Together

“I do.”

Remember when you spoke those words at your wedding? Perhaps it was in front of family and friends. Or maybe it was just the two of you on a beach or in front of a justice of the peace.

Do you recall the tears streaming down your face as you looked into your partner’s eyes, knowing that this was the person you’d committed to spend the rest of your life with, until death you do part?

At that moment, you probably weren’t thinking about savings and checking accounts, stocks and other investments or credit scores. You were thinking, “This is the happiest day of my life.”

Well, not so fast.

While being married has put you in a state of bliss, you need to come down off of your cloud for a minute and have a conversation with your partner about finances. In fact, I’d love to help you and your partner secure a solid and happy financial future together, now and forever. Just follow these tips.

How to Say “I Do” to a Solid Financial Future Together

1. Review bank accounts, credit scores and credit card statements.

Gather your bank statements, credit scores and credit card statements and compare notes. How much money do the both of you have? What are your credit scores? What are your credit card balances? Review all of this information. And if one of you has a lower credit score than the other, it’s a good idea to create a plan to raise the credit score. How? First, stop using your credit cards! Second, double your monthly payments, if you can. It’s important that you and your partner are on the same page when it comes to finances.

2. Create a monthly budget, and stick to it.

Creating a budget is super easy. You can either grab a pen and paper or use a software program. You’ll want to include the following:

  • Rent/mortgage
  • Insurance: car, home and/or renters
  • Expenses: utilities (gas, electric and water and sewer) and phone
  • Car payment (if any)
  • Grocery
  • Child support (if any)
  • Child’s school (if any)
  • Adult education
  • Entertainment
  • Cable (or another provider)
  • Internet
  • Cell/mobile phone
  • Other

After you’ve created your budget, review it together and make necessary adjustments. See where you can cut back. If you can’t adjust the figures, make sure you stick to your monthly budget, no matter what.

3. Review investment portfolios monthly.

If you have investment portfolios, sit down with your financial advisor/manager and discuss how you can make changes to increase your investments and/or diversify. For example, if you’ve been playing it safe, you may want to look into more aggressive stocks. On the flip side, if you’ve been too aggressive, you may want to rethink your strategy and be more conservative. Your financial manager will help you choose the best investment options.

4. Compare salaries and know when to ask for a raise.

How much do you make? If you’ve been working your way up the company ladder and earn a healthy salary, congratulations! But if you’ve been working and haven’t received a raise or don’t think you’ve received a raise that is worthy of you and your work, you may want to approach your boss and ask for a raise. While this may scare you, it can be done — the right way. Do not be confrontational. Point out your contributions and market value. If your boss pushes back, gently remind him/her of your results. If the answer is “No,” either accept it or look for another job.

5. Choose a monthly amount to deposit into a separate savings account.

Now, more than ever, it is important to have an emergency fund. Why? Because you don’t know what could happen now or in the future. You or your partner could get laid off from work, permanently lose your job, need to take care of an aging parent or sick child, or experience another life-altering event. Establishing a monthly amount to be deposited into a savings account that is not to be touched is a must. You may not want to do it, but you need to do this, now.

6. Live within your means.

Your mom and dad may have told you to live within your means. Did you listen? If not, it’s time to start listening. Whenever you’re about to purchase something, ask, “Do I need or want this?” If you don’t need (fill in the blank), why do you want it? Make sure you have a good answer. If you don’t need (fill in the blank), don’t buy it. Why? Because you may have buyer’s remorse or you could find a better deal at another store or online; keep your options open.

7. Start investing.

If you don’t have an investment portfolio, you and your partner may want to hire a financial advisor. It’s never too late to invest. Here’s a tip: Go through your home and look at the products you bought. Find the company and/or brand name and conduct an online search to see if they’re on the NYSE or NASDAQ. Research, i.e. has the stock gone up or down? Ask your financial advisor about the fluidity (money flows, hardly any debt) of the companies. If the companies are solid, consider purchasing their stock. You may want to look into real estate investing. However, you must be ready and prepared to be a landlord. You may consider “fixing and flipping” homes, but this takes some skill. Plus, when you start tearing down walls, you may find problems like faulty electrical work that you didn’t anticipate. Consult a professional real estate investor before you buy an investment property. But whatever you do, start investing, now.

8. Get a side job or start a business.

Okay, so you and your partner work 40 or more hours per week and may not have time for a side job. However, you can earn extra money doing what you love. For example, do you like to bake? Consider opening an online cupcake business. You could specialize in gluten-free and vegan cupcakes or offer customers specific cupcakes, e.g. red velvet and chocolate. Maybe your partner is a fantastic artist. He/she could create paintings and sell them online. You may find that both you and your partner have a knack for running your own business. You could eventually quit your day jobs.

9. Sell your stuff.

Now that you’re married, go through all of your stuff and get rid of what you haven’t used in a year or more. Toss out anything that is worn out, but sell everything that is gently used. Why? Because you can earn extra money and deposit it into your emergency savings account; every little bit helps.

10. Keep the lines of communication open.

Most important is to keep communicating with one another. Do not shut down if your partner makes a mistake, i.e. charges a pair of $ 500 shoes. Sure, you may not be happy about it, but it’s not the end of the world. Calmly speak about the importance of creating a solid financial future together. If you need help, seek counseling from a marriage or financial counselor or both. Whatever you do, do not throw your marriage away at the first bump you have. It won’t be 100 percent perfect all of the time. And remember: Sometimes, marriage isn’t like a merry-go-round; it’s more like a roller coaster. And if you think about it, what’s more fun? A ride that goes around and around or one that’s filled with thrills and chills?

To secure a solid financial future, you and your partner need to be willing to be honest about finances and hopefully were on the same page before you got married.

If you save $ 100, a month that’s $ 1,200 a year plus some interest; multiply that by two years and that’s $ 2,400 with some interest. After a few years, you could take some of the money, invest it and triple, maybe even quadruple your investment. Your financial manager can assist you with this.

Having a solid financial future together is closer to possible than you think.
