Is A Strong Community The Secret To Success For Female Founders?

Women might be starting business in record numbers, but they are still struggling to raise money at the same rate as men. According to a 2018 study from PitchBook, companies with female founders only received 2.3 percent of venture capital last year.

Rebecca Minkoff, co-founder and creative director of her eponymous clothing line, starte...

The Death Of Nevada’s Famous Pimp Won’t Stop Him From Winning Election

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada’s most famous pimp tried to bring the state’s legal brothel industry into the mainstream by mingling with celebrities, showcasing his business on HBO and staging outlandish publicity stunts.

Michael Jackson is alive, Hillary is boozing, and a Buckingham Palace Sex Ring, in this week’s fact-challenged tabloids

When Hillary Clinton slipped on steps polished slick by centuries of wear while clad in smooth-soled sandals during her visit to India’s Jahaz Mahal last week, it was clear to every observer that her left shoe had simply lost traction as she almost fell. “Brain Cancer Battle!” screams this week's Globe cover, with its own medical interpretation of her stumble from half-way across the world. But that’s not all. “She’s back on booze,” reports the magazine for good measure, deciding that her near-...

Kaitlyn Bristowe Still Wants To Do DWTS After Her Spat With Producer

Following a public tussle with Bachelor and Bachelorette producer Mike Fleiss earlier this year, Kaitlyn Bristowe is making it known that she still is down to do Dancing with the Stars. In March, former Bachelorette Bristowe alleged that in 2015, Fleiss told her she "wasn't allowed" to join DWTS after she had already nabbed a contract — striking up a conversation about why so few Bachelorettes appear on the reality series in comparison to Bachelors. But Bristowe isn't harboring any kind of a gr...

Here's Jojo Fletcher's Take On That Dancing With The Stars Controversy

Look, the Bachelor franchise has no delusions of progressiveness. The ABC reality shows are devoted to a very traditional type of love. There are rose petals, elaborate dates in tropical locales, and at the end of it all, a man gets on one knee and proposes to a woman. It's all very picturesque, but it's not very forward, per se. In terms of representation and politically aware content, Bachelor Nation has got a ways to go. This year in particular, though, the franchise seems to be making strid...

Former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe Speaks Out On The Show's Double Standards

You couldn't exactly describe Kaitlyn Bristowe as "quiet." The former Bachelorette's candor has become her trademark. In fact, it's what made her such a good lead for the reality show. She doesn't mince words, and we love her for it. (Remember when she had sex with Nick Viall in a hotel before the fantasy suite? Gee, those were the days.)Currently, she's dishing realness re: gendered double standards in the Bachelor franchise. Following the announcement that Nick Viall will appear on season 24 ...
