Victoria Secret's Fans Are Still in Denial About Adriana Lima's Retirement — but She's Leaving for a Good Reason

image

End of an era! After nearly two decades, Adriana Lima is hanging up her angel wings at the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show — and fans are in denial. 

“I can’t believe Adriana Lima is retiring. VSFS’s not going to be the same without her. The new models look like zombies walking on the catwalk,” one longtime viewer sadly tweeted. Another added, “There will never be another Adriana Lima, @KendallJenner please for the love of humanity RETIRE.” 

So, seriously, why did Adriana decide to retire when she can still clearly rock the brand’s iconic angel wings better than newbies like Kendall 0r Gigi and Bella Hadid? Well, it turns at the 37-year-old beauty is looking to shift her focus to more projects dedicated to female empowerment.

“I’m looking forward to support women and being connected to different projects which support women around the world,” she told People magazine. “That like my future from now on but I am still happy that I am part of Victoria’s Secret this year. You guys are going to love this year’s show. To me it is definitely going be very special.” 

However, that doesn’t mean her decision to leave Victoria’s Secret after nearly 20 years and 18 runway shows was easy. “Dear Victoria, Thank you for showing me the world, sharing your secrets, and most importantly not just giving me wings but teaching me to fly. And all the ❤️ to the best fans in the 🌎! Love, Adriana,” she recently wrote on Instagram, before breaking down in tears during the taping of her fashion show. She also made it very clear she will always be a Victoria’s Secret Angel at heart. “I think this year is going to be the highlight of my career,” she added. “This has been my 18th fashion show and I am still as excited as I was from the first day. I always love to be on runways and being part of the Victoria’s Secret show. It’s my favorite to do.” 

Adriana’s first VS Fashion show was in 2000 — when she was a very young 19 years old. 

Adriana was still a teenager when she rocked those angel wings for the first time. Since then, she has worn the infamous Fantasy Bra three times in her career. In 2014, Adriana wore matching Fantasy Bras — worth $2 million each — with her BFF and fellow Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, who announced her retirement last year. 

“It was an honor to share so many special moments on the runway with you @adrianalima! Love u,” Alessandra wrote shortly after her last runway show.

image

Maybe it was Alessandra’s retirement that inspired Adriana to step down — after previously predicting she would be an Angel until she was at least 40 years old. “That’s something that doesn’t come into my head,” Adriana said last year. “My plan is to stay as long as my body allows me, at least until I am 40, so that’s four or so more years. But if I can stay longer, I will.”

Don’t forget, Adriana is also a mother of two! 

Recently, Adriana gushed about her two daughters, Valentina and Sienna, with ex-husband Marko Jarić, on Instagram writing, “My love… my life… my reason to live… family the strongest bond, no judgement, no matter what love always wins… thank you my two angels for the happiness you bring into my life. Mummy is the luckiest.” 

We’re sure her girls will be watching her last VS fashion show. 

image

And Adriana’s last show just might be the best one yet. 

The 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will end Adriana’s runway career with a bang. Along with performances by Halsey, Bebe Rexha, The Chainsmokers, Kelsea Ballerini, Rita Ora, Shawn Mendes, and The Struts, it’s also the brand’s most diverse when it comes to its model lineup. 

“We have 60 girls from all over the world representing different countries,” Adriana explained. “We have eight different musicians, which is the most we’ve ever had. We have seven different segments. I am looking forward to seeing Rita Ora — I am such a big fan. She is such a great musician. Besides that she is a beautiful, sweet kind person.”

Watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Sunday, Dec. 2, at 10 p.m. on ABC.

Meet Jennifer Aydin — She's Not Your Typical 'RHONJ' Housewife

image

The Season 9 premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is bringing some new blood to the group and she’s definitely not our typical wife from the Jerz, though she does have a big, colorful family with five children ages 5 to 13. To help you get to know the new cast member before she makes her Bravo debut, we’ve gathered up every bit of information there is to know about Jennifer Aydin.

Though her husband is a successful plastic surgeon, she’s more than a homemaker.

Though she’s focused on raising their children together for the past few years, the 41-year-old’s  youngest, Olivia, is about to enter kindergarten, which means it’s time to restart her career. Before settling down with  Dr. N. Bill Aydin, who runs a successful plastic surgery practice in Paramus. Though they call New Jersey home now, the Aydins both hail from New York (Jennifer grew up on Long Island and Bill in Flushing, Queens). 

image

Both come from traditional Turkish backgrounds, though the 41-year-old’s ethnicity is a bit more complicated than that. “I’m what’s called Aramaean or some people like to say Assyrian,” she explains, Historically, this Semitic culture populated an area stretching from modern-day Syria to Turkey. However, Jennifer concedes, “It’s a lot easier for me to just say I’m Turkish.” Fair enough!

Jennifer sums herself up with the tagline, “I’m obsessed with family, traditions, and Chanel.” However, despite being a traditional girl in many respects,  she did break with one family custom: arranged marriages. In fact, she was in the midst of getting engaged to a man her parents had chosen for her when she met Bill and, well, obviously her plans changed. Despite this deviation from norms, Jennifer still sees herself as very traditionally Turkish, so her first date with Bill was chaperoned and she saved herself for her wedding night, much to the other Housewives’ incredulity. 

Jennifer used to host a Turkish cooking show.

Her Turkish pride shows through in her work as an on-camera personality for a Turkish cooking show, but her desire to be on TV stems even farther back. As young as 16, Jennifer set her sights on becoming an actress, prompting her mother to worry she would never marry and have children. Seems mom had nothing to worry about there! 

image

She comes from a long line of jewelers.

Like many of the H’wives, Jen is all about that bling, but she comes by her love of gems and precious metals honestly. Her father made his fortune as a jeweler working for Tiffany and A&S before opening his own shop in Woodbury, New York, called John Michaels. Her brother Michael has since taken over running the family business. The family has carried this occupation for over five generations. In fact, Jennifer’s maiden name translates to “gold hand.”

Jennifer is no stranger to the RHONJ crew.

Though she’s new to Bravolebrity, Jen has a long history with a couple past cast members and one current player. “Melissa Gorga, we’ve shared the same hairstylist, for years,” she says. Meanwhile, Dolores Catania knows her even more intimately, since she used to work at the same surgery clinic as Dr. Bill a few years back, and they reconnected a year ago at the birthday party of a mutual friend. Jennifer is also close friends with OG Kathy Wakile, so chances are good she has crossed paths with cousin Teresa Giudice once or twice. 

image

This season, we can expect Jennifer to butt heads with some of the other ladies over her traditional ways, so it should be anything but boring! Tune in to The Real Housewives of New Jersey Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.

This Woman Collected All of the Ridiculous Boys' Names She's Encountered on Twitter and They're Hilarious

image

There’s almost no way to talk about this subject without coming off as insensitive so I’m going to do my best to tread lightly, but some cultures and sub-cultures of those cultures are known for abiding by certain rules when it comes to naming their kids.

For example, if you’re Albanian, then you’ve probably got at least three male relatives named Arben, and every other female cousin, or aunt or niece is named Nora or a variation of that name. Now, when I say culture, I also don’t exclusively mean ethnicity either, I’m talking about how and where you were raised.

My wife, for example, went to school with two twins named Remy and Martin and later taught an adorable young kid named Yooneeq. A friend of mine once told me about a Dominican woman she met while on vacation calling to her son, his name was Gibe (pronounced Gi-bay). When she asked him what the name meant, the woman replied, “Gibe, you know, like the saint.”  My friend didn’t know a saint named Gibe, so the woman explained further, “Like the Holiday that’s named after him, the one right before Christmas?”

That’s right, she thought that Thanksgiving, which she pronounced “Sans-gibay,” was a celebration of a “San” or “Saint.”

image

As a kid who grew up with the name MOO-STAH-FAH, I understand Gibe’s pain that will inevitably come as a result of his unusual name. Since my parents immigrated to the U.S. and I went to elementary school in an area that was jam-packed with Brians and Pauls and Lucases and Michaels and Christophers and Matthews and Bretts and Daniels and Davids, it was usually these fair-skinned and freckled boys that would ridicule me for having a name that sounded more fit for a cartoon lion.

But like I said, every culture and sub-culture has their own naming norms and practices, and Twitter user @nrherzog’s post speaks to a subset of unusual names that deserve some careful attention for a number of reasons.

image

While swiping through Tinder, mostly in the states of Washington, Colorado, and a bit of Massachusetts, Norah decided to record all of the “best white boy names” that she came across in the notes application on her phone.

And like any good important statement made via Twitter, she screenshot those notes to share with everyone else on the internet to enjoy. In her journeys, she witnessed fascinating and majestic monikers like “Taniel” and “Quest.”

image

I’m a bit fascinated behind the meanings of these names. Like, there are some awful-sounding names that just set someone up for life, like Boris and — why not let’s go there — Adolph. Sure, the names have kind of been ruined (especially that second one), but they have meanings behind them.

Boris means fighter, Adolph is a “noble wolf.” But, unless you’ve got a really big affinity for the name, you’re probably not going to name your kid Boris, and I don’t even think it’s legal in most countries to name a child Adolph.

image

But I don’t know what they were trying to accomplish by naming their kid Quest. Did they have an affinity for one of the greatest OG hip-hop groups around? Because that’s the only answer I’ll ever accept. And I’ve heard of the name Dustin before, but did the nurse mess up when filling out the birth certificate and accidentally stick a child with  “Gustin”?

Well, Gustin could be short for “Augustin,” which makes sense. But I would much rather believe that the boy’s parents were obsessed with Urban Dictionary and came across this definition while discussing how they wished they would give birth to an overly-talkative kid.

image

Oh and if you thought her first page of names was bad, the second one contained a bunch of other winners, too. Like who names their son “Bligh”? Isn’t that an alternate spelling of “Blegh”? Do you know what you’ve done to that poor child when he goes to school? The endless ridicule?

image

And how is “Auston” pronounced, like “Gaston”? And Johnathon sounds like a Krasinski movie or a TV show marathon that quirky buddies came up with in an episode of a tired sitcom that’s just trying way too hard.

image

Forget Korder. Forget Ketch (which I’m convinced is short for Ketchup). Forget Bayne with a “y,” but we can take a second to talk about Thorin, as in, Thorin Oakenshield, the sexy dwarf from The Hobbit

image

People were scratching their heads over all the apparently brand new ways moms have come up with to name their kids familiar monikers like “Kevin” and “Caitlyn.” I don’t know why adding unnecessary h’s and ae’s makes them feel better their kids. I think a formal study needs to be conducted to get to the bottom of this.

In case you’re reading this and you have a name mentioned on the list above, don’t feel bad because, one, you’re reading this article and it’s written by a guy named Mustafa for crying out loud. You’re fine, trust me.

And two, because the 2017 Alberta, Canada list of popular baby names dropped online and some of the monikers on that little roundup had people howling. Can you believe someone named their kid “Zeppelin” and another thought it’d be cool to call their child, “V”? Like, just the letter, “V.”

image

Look, I like 99-cent cans of iced tea as much as the next guy, and Stranger Things is  a great, great show. That Dolphin game on Sega Genesis? Incredible! But I’m not going to name my kids Arizona, Eleven, or Echo because of it.

image

As much as I want to hate on the names in the list, however, people kept tweeting out absolute gems that just bring me so much delight. Cola? Denmark? Friggin XAX? What’s Xax? What is that? It sounds like a deviant art username or something.

image

OK but seriously, we’re all laughing at these kids’ names, but just remember, there’s going to be a child called Chrome walking the halls and everyone is going to think he was either named after a web browser or dope rims.

Former 'Life Below Zero' Star Kate Rorke Is Not in Alaska, but She's Living Her Best Life

image

If you love Alaskan Bush People, then you need to watch Life Below Zero — if you don’t already. The National Geographic series also takes viewers to the most remote regions of Alaska to see how people survive in the frozen tundra. 

However, while most of the show’s cast is returning for Season 11, Kate Rorke is not one of them. So, what happened to Andy Bassich’s wife Kate from Life Below Zero?

Well, fans met the blonde beauty when the show premiered in 2013. Back then, she was married to co-star Andy. Kate, who is not originally from Alaska, met Andy while on vacation and decided to move up north to be with him. The couple wed shortly after. 

image

Unfortunately, in 2015, Andy and Kate announced they were calling it quits. One year later, the divorce was finalized and Kate moved away — ending her time on the Nat Geo series. She later opened up about the split, claiming Andy was physically and mentally abusive. 

Since then, Kate has not returned to Alaska and Andy is living alone with his dogs. Despite her decision to leave reality television, Kate is seemingly doing better than ever. On her official Facebook page, the 61-year-old regularly interacts with her fans and shares many of her life updates from Newfoundland in Canada. 

And it looks like she is also enjoying warmer climes — recently returning from a vacation in the Caribbean. She recently shared a photo with her brother, writing, “Great to spend time with my amazing brother Tolson. We have not seen each other in about 16 years. Far too long.” 

image

Even though it has been three years since her last appearance on Life Below Zero, followers are still hoping she will return. But that doesn’t seem likely. 

“It’s good to be home,” Kate said in a video post. “The memories are good, the friends are good, and it’s nice to be around people who have known me since the beginning of time it seems as we get older… You guys, you all got me here and you saved my life in a way, so love to you. Over and out.” 

What is Andy up to on Life Below Zero

In a sneak preview for Season 11, it was revealed that Andy is still on his own in Alaska and has recently lost his beloved dog, Iceberg. 

image

“It’s sad to see him go. You get really attached to them and then they leave and it’s kind of a hard thing to live through,” he said on the show. “Last year, I retired him halfway through the year, but even with one eye, he was still a pretty good darn lead dog. You know, he had a great life with me, we traveled a lot of miles together, had a lot of great adventures and he was a pretty cool dog. I’m going to miss him. It’s sad to see him gone but it’s time to start training the new Iceberg.”  

Watch the season premiere of Life Below Zero on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 9 p.m. on the National Geographic.

Julia Roberts Is Pretty New to Instagram But She's Already Killing the Game

image

With only 39 posts and 22 people she follows, it’s safe to say that 50-year-old superstar Julia Roberts is just getting started on Instagram. However, the Pretty Woman has quickly learned the ropes of the social media platform since posting her first selfie at the end of June of this year.

Because when she’s not uploading cute selfies, raising awareness for marginalized communities, or gracing her followers with on-set throwbacks from their favorite Hollywood films, Julia’s been shutting down her Instagram haters.

The Notting Hill and Erin Brokovich actress is already an expert at the clapback and is shutting down trolls who criticized her fashion sense. To quote her character when she’s out shopping in Pretty Woman, messing with Julia is a “BIG MISTAKE… Big… Huge…”

The Instagram drama began a couple of days ago, when @thevintagecostumecollector posted this side-by-side photo, which featured Julia Roberts at the Toronto Film Festival for her upcoming Amazon Prime drama, Homecoming.

image

Nicholas Inglis, the film’s costume collector who runs the account, captioned the photo: “Who wore it better! I always like to find the glamour of classic Hollywood when I can. Over the weekend, Julia Roberts looked stunning in this gorgeous full-length gown designed by Dsquared2 and in a little way has brought back the shoulder pad to the red carpet at the Toronto film festival. I love it. Full-length stylish classic elegance. 👌❤️”

The post garnered hundreds of responses, with some gushing “Two legends! Julia is everything with this gown” and others commenting “Loooove that she brought shoulder pads back!! She looks distinct in it. But I still think Joan wore it better. Julia lacks that drama and power in her overall feel and look. Joan was fierce! The shoulder pads accentuated and perpetuated her fierceness in such a glamorous way.”

The haters would (as they do) go on hating, and a certain @anniemagic11 threw herself head-first into the fire, writing, “Joan Crawford looks way better in my opinion. More classic and refined and Julia is wearing ugly black nail polish!” below the pic. 

And everyone’s favorite Stepmom was absolutely not having it.

image

Celebrities probably scroll through social media feeds when they’re bored — like normal people do — so it wasn’t long before Julia caught wave of this troll. Instead of letting the comment slide, the new Instagrammer decided to to respond.

She wrote back: “@anniemagic11 It is in fact a navy polish with garnets crystals as a grounding accent. In case you would like to edit your comment from ‘ugly black nail polish’ to ugly navy polish with Garnet crystals. Just sayin’ 💅🏼” 

Ouchhhhhh.

Take this as a lesson in not messing with Julia Roberts, especially not while she’s still learning the ropes of Instagram. But feel free to also take this as a lesson in definitely following every antic Julia is about to get herself into on social media.

Nick’s followers and Julia’s fans alike were living for her comment clapback, with some writing “@juliaroberts Okay this is the most fabulous takedown I think I’ve ever seen”  and others chiming in with “@juliaroberts OMG Julia! You made my day, no no my week! You looked amazing and haters gonna hate. Yes you are just as iconic as Miss Crawford. Love you.”

image

But Instagram drama isn’t all that the Oscar-winning actress got up to while promoting her film in Toronto. During a Q&A for Homecoming, the actress spotted a fan sporting a Be Love t-shirt, a clothing brand she openly supports, which raises money for causes serving women, families and children. When he went to ask the star a question, Julia said “Get up on stage! Look at your t-shirt. I’m in love with you,” according to Global News.

Fan Kenny Santana says of the event: “She didn’t only just make my day. She made my entire life by doing so…dreams really do come true.”

image

Between Julia’s Instagram sass and her undying devotion to fans and just causes, the actress herself is the ultimate dream come true.

Grandma Discovers Something About The 'USA' Shirt She's Been Wearing For 25 July 4th Celebrations

image

Dressing up for special occasions is pretty great, and nothing says PATRIOTIC GET-UP better than rocking your red white and blue everything on the 4th of july.

T-shirts brandishing the old stars and stripes, cheap wayfarer knock-off sunglasses, blue shorts, red sneakers and a white top bedazzled with stars, everyone can rep the US flag. Heck, even if you’re from New York my guy, there’s a special USA item of clothing for you.

The iconic symbol of America’s flag is immediately recognizable, and no July 4th celebration would be complete without drowning in a glorious sea of red, white, and blue, accompanied by whatever cold cheap beer your friends managed to toss into a cooler.

The thing is, however, that the colors red, white, and blue are pretty common. There are tons of countries that have them on their flags. Look at France. Look at Britain. Stars, while not exactly a rarity, are a bit less common. So if you see stars, red, white, and blue on something, your mind automatically thinks ‘Murica.

That’s what Dale Cheesman’s grandma thought. She’s been repping the same fourth of July shirt for more than 25 years. Look at how adorable she is in it.

However, thanks to the 2018 World Cup and the participation of one team, Panama, Dale and his family discovered something about Grandma’s shirt.

She wasn’t repping Old Glory at all. Take a look at the Panamanian flag below, then back at Granny’s shirt.

That’s right, every July 4th for 25+ years, Grandma was actually proudly rocking Panama’s flag.

Something that Dale calls “25 years of treason.”

People loved Dale’s post.

And immediately replied by giving some Panama-approved Grandma nickname puns. 

Now here’s where it gets crazy, a proud citizen of Panama pointed out that he should tell his grandmother to rock the shirt on November 3rd, which is Panama’s Independence Day.

Dale’s birthday? November 3rd. BOOM.

Others wanted to know just how in the heck Grandma managed to keep a 25+ year shirt looking so darn nice.

People just wanted his grandma to come and visit Panama, probably on account of how well she wore that shirt.

Others didn’t find it so funny. This is July 4th after all, and Granny was sporting the wrong flag.

On the plus side, however, she at least was wearing a shirt for a country that qualified for the World Cup and even won it!

It was the World Cup of Flags on Twitter, but still, so what they lost 6-1 to England? They’ve got that distinction and an awesome Grandma who will hopefully uphold  the tradition come this July 4th.

People Are Calling Out Kat Von D After She Said She's Raising Her Child Vegan And Without Vaccinations

image

You might be familiar with Kat Von D, a tattoo artist and television star who eventually started her own extremely popular makeup company branded towards the goth girl in all of us. She is also recently married to fellow goth, Rafael Reyes. They are soon expecting a child together.

Kat Von D has over 12 million followers on Instagram, so people were pretty shocked and horrified when she broadcast her intentions to not vaccinate her baby. Anti-vaxxers, a few of whom are well-known celebrities like Jenny McCarthy, have been promoting the idea that vaccinations are dangerous and cause autism, and have discouraged people from getting doctor-recommended treatment. This means that diseases that have been all but eradicated, like polio and the mumps, have been on the rise again.

The issue is that we depend on one another for herd immunity. The fewer people in a group who are susceptible to a disease, the less likely there is to be an outbreak. And there are people who medically cannot have the vaccine or who have a compromised immune system that makes them vulnerable. We get vaccinations to keep ourselves and other people safe.

In a long post on Instagram, Kat Von D talks about receiving tons of unsolicited advice. She also drops the no vaccinations things pretty casually in the middle:

I knew the minute we announced our pregnancy that we would be bombarded with unsolicited advice.
Some good and some questionable – unsolicited none the less. 

I also was prepared for the backlash and criticism we would get if we decided to be open about our personal approach to our pregnancy. My own Father flipped out on me when I told him we decided to ditch our doctor and go with a midwife instead.  

If you don’t know what it’s like have people around you think you are ridiculous, try being openly vegan.  And, if you don’t know what it’s like to have the entire world openly criticize, judge, throw uninformed opinions, and curse you – try being an openly pregnant vegan on Instagram, having a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and doula, who has the intention of raising a vegan child, without vaccinations. 

My point being: I already know what it’s like to make life choices that are not the same as the majority. So your negative comments are not going influence my choices – actual research and educating myself will – which i am diligently doing.  This is my body. This is our child. And this is our pregnancy journey. 

Feel free to follow me on here if you like what I’m about – whether it’s tattooing, lipstick, Animal Rights, sobriety, feminism, ridiculous gothiness, black flower gardening, cats, or my adorable husband.  But if you don’t dig a certain something about what I post, i kindly ask that you press the unfollow button and move the fuck on.  

So before anyone of you feel inspired to tell me how to do this, I would appreciate you keeping your unsolicited criticism to yourself.  More importantly, for those who have amazing positive energy to send my way, I will gladly and graciously receive it with love! X

Oddly, people aren’t just moving on. They’re boycotting her products and expressing their disgust:

One particularly pissed off person is fellow make-up entrepreneur Caroline Hirons.

Hirons has had firsthand experience with how these resurgent illnesses are hurting people, because her 23-year-old son came down with the mumps and battled for his life. She shared pictures of his time in the hospital and his recovery.

Hirons writes:

When our son was rushed to the emergency room last summer in a convoy of two ambulances and four paramedics (they sent for the main team because Dan was so dehydrated that the initial paramedic couldn’t find a vein), he had a raging fever and was hallucinating. He couldn’t see us when we were leaning over him. He felt his body shutting down.

 The team worked on him for over 15 minutes in the ambulance before they were cleared to ‘move off’. When we arrived at the hospital they immediately quarantined us and put him in critical care. Four IV drips. For 48 hours. He spent a week quarantined in the critical care unit – in the dark, because the crushing migraine he had for three weeks would not leave, even with morphine. His fever took a week to come down within normal range, even with the best of modern medicine available. 

At the time he was a 23 year old man, fitter than most, who played football for approx 4 hours a day. Mumps felled him. He lost over two stone in weight. Without intensive medical intervention he would not be here. Now imagine he was a baby. Or someone with a compromised immune system. When I see people like @thekatvond using their platform to promote raising her unborn child ‘without vaccinations’, I want her and the drones of ill-advised people underneath, including @kandeejohnson to see and know that this is the reality of ‘benign diseases’. 

You have the absolute unbelievable arrogance of a ‘choice’, because the rest of us responsible people/parents DID vaccinate. These diseases were almost gone, now they are back because some people think they know better than all the scientists, physicians and specialists in modern science. As I said in my post last year, vaccinate your kids. Or keep them the hell away from mine. (I took endless pictures of Dan in hospital to keep Jim up to speed as he had stayed home with our younger, traumatised kids. Dan gave his full permission for me use the picture and tell the story in detail. He’s our hero. And no, I am obviously not talking about you if you are unable to have the vaccines. You are who the rest of us should be trying to protect.)

As Hirons points out, things were touch-and-go for her son, who had been in strong health and who was a full-grown adult, not a child, when he got mumps.

Other people have also taken to social media to share their experiences, and point out that a fear of having children with autism, which is incredibly ableist to begin with, may lead some parents to have kids who are vulnerable to illnesses that can leave them severely impaired.

Twitter user Elsa Sjunneson-Henry shared that she is deaf and blind because she had rubella as a child:

What do you think?
