Angelina’s boozing, Prince Charles’ divorce, and college entry cheat Lori Loughlin “tells all,” in this week’s dubious tabloids

Do tabloid editors even read what their reporters write? It’s hard to imagine, given the disconnect between headlines and the barely-detectable trace elements of facts contained in the stories beneath them. “Alex Trebek — Lung & Liver Surgery” reports the cover story of this week’s National Enquirer. But he’s had neither surgery according to the story on the inside pages about the beloved host of TV’s Jeopardy, who recently admitted having stage four pancreatic cancer. Is Trebek even poised to u...

Friday Roundup

Photo by Daniel Brannan via  Clare and Blake’s Relaxed Mornington Peninsula Wedding It has been a week Dotties, between Facebook and what felt like the entire internet imploding (I’m looking at you too Gmail and Instagram), and our own personal computers, it’s been an epic week of tech fails. Luckily, we’ve been taking respite in all the beauty of The Bouquet Issue, because when computers hate us, there is beauty in beautiful weddings (like the gorgeous Clare above who shared her day over on Pol...

Preview Thursday: Win the Heart

We are pleased to present this excerpt from Win the Heart by Mark Miller. Why Engagement Matters The life of a leader can be hectic. On most days, we have a dizzying array of problems screaming for our attention… internal pressures such as staffing, quality, and capacity issues combined with external storm clouds propelling the war for talent, competitive pressures, and ever-changing governmental regulations, to name just a few. In the midst of this cacophony is brewing a threat to our orga...

Canucks Should Offer Sheet Kapanen or Johnsson

It’s no secret Bo Horvat’s revolving door of wingers has been a problem for the Vancouver Canucks this season. The club’s promising 23-year-old centre has played at least 100 minutes with 10 different wingers at 5-on-5 so far in 2018-19. Brock Boeser: 296:01 Antoine Roussel: 251:36 Jake Virtanen: 249:40 Nikolay Goldobin: 235:42 Loui Eriksson: 218:37 Sven Baertschi: 137:46 Josh Leivo: 130:43 Tyler Motte: 107:40 Tim Schaller: 107:13 Markus Granlund: 104:49 Given the circumstances, Horvat has don...

Why You Didn’t Succeed Today

You’re worried about lead generation when you should be worried about pursuing , your dream clients, the ones who would value tremendously from what you sell. You’re concerned about what marketing is doing when what should command your attention is what you need to do to create and win new opportunities. You spend your time distracted by US politics instead of focused on the few things that actually improve your results, like your task list and your effort. The priorities of other people that w...

Strong draft could take some sting out of Kings’ ugly season

An ugly season, it has been for the Kings. They have lost nine consecutive games and it appears they will miss the playoffs for the third time in five seasons since winning their second Stanley Cup title in 2014. The Kings were 14 points behind Dallas for the final playoff berth in the Western Conference ahead of Wednesday’s slate of games, and the Kings will host the Stars on Thursday night at 7:30 at Staples Center. The Kings have 19 games left in the regular season. There do appear to be some...

The Voice Blind Auditions Recap: Was the Shows First Trio a Triple Threat?

Tuesday was only the second night of The Voice’s Season 16 Blind Auditions, and already, I was looking forward to hearing some of the contestants again in the Battles — and not just to reassure myself that I hadn’t graded too generously Monday, they really were/are as good as I thought. (Back me up here — somebody, anybody.) I was also already so enamored of John Legend as a coach that he felt like as much a part of the panel as Blake Shelton’s cup holder. Mostly, though, since I devour the sh...

The Voice Season 16 Premiere Recap: How Did Newbie Coach John Legend Do in His First Round of Musical Chairs?

“It’s my first day at school!” cried John Legend as he settled in for his freshman  season as a coach on The Voice Monday. And, based on his picks in Night 1 of Season 16’s Blind Auditions , the EGOT winner was going to ace the gig. (Two of the three artists that he recruited for his team got A’s from me — I know, I know, cue the complaints that I grade too easily… I get excited. Sue me!).

‘Detective Pikachu’ Featurette: Ryan Reynolds Abandoned His Daughters to Play the Pokemon

We’re as surprised as anyone that Detective Pikachu actually looks like it could be a fun action adventure romp this summer. Some of that is likely thanks to Ryan Reynolds providing the voice of the investigative Pokémon who normally only says his own name . But it wasn’t easy for the Deadpool star to go from being a mouthy, meta mercenary to playing a cute, little, yellow furball. In fact, as a new Detective Pikachu featurette reveals, Reynolds went so far as to disappear into the role, so m...

Kings trade Oscar Fantenberg to Calgary for conditional pick

When the Kings on Jan. 28 traded away Jake Muzzin, one of the team’s top defensemen, it became evident the struggling team was looking to be sellers in the market. The Kings went on to trade forwards Nate Thompson and Carl Hagelin this month. They continued on that trek when they dealt defenseman Oscar Fantenberg to the Calgary Flames for a conditional fourth-round draft pick in 2020 in an accord that was reached just before the noon deadline Monday. Fantenberg, 27, is in his second season in th...

Will floundering Kings be sellers at NHL trade deadline?

Since the Kings have struggled all season, it’s difficult to really know how much Monday’s trade deadline is affecting their play. Team captain Anze Kopitar is tired of hearing that excuse, though. “I’m sure it’s on everybody’s mind, but at the end of the day showing up to the game, there’s nothing more important than that,” Kopitar said following Saturday’s 6-1 defeat at Florida, the Kings’ seventh consecutive loss. “Deadline or whatever the case may be, we can’t show an effort like we did toda...

How Blake and Gwen Reacted to Miranda Lamberts Quick Marriage

Two days after Valentine’s Day, Miranda Lambert shocked her Instagram followers by announcing that she’d met “the love of my life … And we got hitched!” Her new husband is New York City police officer Brendan McLoughlin, whom the 35-year-old country star met in November on the set of Good Morning America — just three days before the Staten Island native, 27, welcomed his first child with another woman.

'Isn’t It Romantic' Is Escapist Fare with a Cheeky Twist

None The romantic comedy, far from its heyday in the '90s, has become an oversaturated and cliché-ridden genre. But to satirize rom-coms, or to bemoan their lack of originality or insight into the human condition, is just as unappealing. The reality of the genre is that much of it, in all its iterations, is tired. But can't the same be said for genre fare at large? Rom-coms, like all genres, have good and bad exemplars in equal measure. Science fiction, fantasy and superhero films, it can be sa...

Ryan Reynolds' Favorite Smell Is Douglas Firs & Canadian Rain

In countless interviews and media appearances, Ryan Reynolds has been described as charming and relatable, the kind of guy whose temperament is more telling of his native Canada than Hollywood. But as I waited to meet him in the sleek, minimalist penthouse of a modern high-rise in downtown Manhattan, I felt like I was on my way to interview an ex-NASA employee who was prepared to reveal that, yes, the moon landing was an orchestrated hoax by the government — not charming, relatable actor Ryan R...

Busy Philipps Took a Pic of Miranda Lamberts Hot Cop Husband in 2017

How ‘Isn’t It Romantic?’ Made Director Todd Strauss-Schulson’s Childhood Dream a Cinematic Reality

Like many romantic comedies, Isn’t It Romantic? makes New York City a big part of the story. In fact, there are two versions of The Big Apple in the movie. First, there’s the grungy, dingy real New York City that we all know and love. Then there’s the colorful, vibrant and picturesque version of New York City that exists in the romcom dream world that Rebel Wilson finds herself stuck in. It’s in this world that director Todd Strauss-Schulson was able to create a scene that he’s been dreaming of...

Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton Need to Handle Obstacles Before Getting Married

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton “are on the path to getting married,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly, but first, “there are obstacles they have to deal with.” In January, Us reported that the couple, who began dating in 2015, were taking things slow for the sake of Stefani’s three sons, Kingston, 12, Zuma, 10, and Apollo, 4 (the “Hollaback Girl singer” and their dad, Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale, divorced the same year).
