Carrie Fisher Reportedly in Critical Condition After Heart Attack

Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher has reportedly suffered a heart attack at the age of 60 while on an international flight and is currently in “critical condition” according to multiple reports.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Fisher was in critical condition following what emergency officials described as a “cardiac episode” that occurred during her flight from London on Friday, December 23. She was then rushed to the hospital by paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department after the plane landed at LAX. A source also confirming the “full cardiac arrest” to NBC News said the actress’ condition was “not good.”

FCC study shows DSL is terrible, but it doesn’t have to be

FCC study shows DSL is terrible, but it doesn’t have to beThe Federal Communications Commission’s sixth annual “Measuring Broadband America” report wastes little time in reminding phone-based digital-subscriber-line (DSL) technology subscribers that they’re stuck in the slow lane. “Average DSL speeds have increased only slightly over these years,” the Dec. 1 report states. The result: In peak evening hours, DSL averaged 11.4 megabits per second, which is far below the FCC’s 25-Mbps threshold for broadband that President Obama has called not a luxury but “a necessity.” Cable and fiber-optic broadband, meanwhile, shot past DSL at 52.3 Mbps and 52.22 Mbps.

Brioni Opens New York Flagship on Madison Avenue

NEW YORK — Brioni is taking its luxury Italian aesthetic to Madison Avenue here with the opening of a two-level, 5,974-square-foot flagship on 62nd Street.
The store is the second iteration of a David Chipperfield Architects Milan design that launched in Paris in July on Rue Saint-Honoré. But Gianluca Flore, chief executive officer of the Kering-owned Brioni, said the layout of the New York store allows for a fuller expression of the design.
“It’s even nicer than Paris,” he said. “That fact that it is two full floors allows for the concept to express itself in a better way.” The Paris store is also on two levels, but one is below ground.
The New York store, which opens Thursday, replaces a smaller unit on 57th Street that closed on Sunday. The flagship was intended to open in late October, but construction delays, due in part to the fact that the location is a residential building, pushed back the opening date.
The opening of the store comes as Brioni is in the midst of another reboot after a tumultuous 10 months. It parted ways with its then-creative director Brendan Mullane, tapped Justin O’Shea as his successor, and then pushed O’Shea out after six months following pushback from

Heacket, ‘World’s Most Durable Heated Jacket,’ Readies for Launch

HOT HOT HEAT: Owen Zhang is a self-professed lover of the outdoors.
After getting his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at the The University of Minnesota Twin Cities in Minneapolis, Zhang traveled home to Shenzhen, China to launch Meltpartners, a company that manufactures and retails outdoor sporting goods. In 2014, he linked with a company there called Heacket — a play on the words “heat” and “jacket” — and together the two set out to create “the world’s most durable heated jacket.”
Two years later, a new line of jackets is ready for its debut. The Heacket team has set up an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to test the market, where interested buyers can preorder the style at a discounted price.
WWD received an early sample of the jacket, a chic navy blue style with a generous hood, red contrast zipper detailing and a wind and water-resistant outer shell. The jacket is also offered in pink and black in a range of sizes for men and women. There are four battery-operated controlled heating zones — both battery and charger are included with purchase — and the jacket takes three seconds to warm up.
Zhang emphasized that the jacket is meant for active lifestyles and can be

Mother of Pearl Pre-Fall 2017

A photo of Mother of Pearl creative director Amy Powney’s father, shirtless and sitting astride a butch looking motorbike in distressed jeans in the late Seventies in the Powney family’s backyard, sparked the inspiration for the brand’s last pre-fall collection before it adopts a see-now-buy-now model from next September, when it will show fall 2017 on the catwalk.
Papa Powney’s jeans informed the many denim pieces and raw edges throughout the collection, like boiler suits and a playful halter jumpsuit with floral halter straps, while the summertime blooms in the photo inspired the wildflowers and roses that appeared in botanical florals of daisies and roses.
Those florals were a pretty foil to the tougher denim pieces, charming in a cream dress with bared shoulders, fluted sleeves and frills under the bust; and looked striking in a black and red rose print wrap skirt, fastened with velvet ribbons and opening to reveal a contrasting pleated insert.
Heavy khaki cord was another Seventies nod, and looked great in an oversize biker jacket, while Powney’s signature sporty Nineties raver accents were seen in the gathered ankles of floral silk track pants and in the press-studs that opened up the front of nicely tailored trousers in floral

New Designer Spotlight: Marina Moscone

SISTER ACT: Marina Moscone and her sister, Francesca, grew up in Vancouver and ultimately pursued different career paths: Marina in fashion and Francesca in business. Last spring, the duo came together to launch Marina Moscone, the New York-based women’s ready-to-wear label.
Marina earned a degree in fashion degree from The New School’s Parsons School of Design and started working for Total Management, where she was an agent for photographers and stylists. “I graduated Parsons during the recession, and designers weren’t being hired,” Marina said. “At Total, I met people who I work with in the industry now [as a designer]….It ended up giving me a 360-degree perspective of the fashion business.”
Two years later, Marina landed a design gig at Peter Som, eventually becoming the brand’s design director. She spent four-and-a-half years at the company before breaking out to launch her eponymous label last spring, all of it made in New York using Italian fabrics.
“We’re Italian, and we grew up a lot spending our summers in Italy, where our father is from,” Marina said of her and her sister Francesca, who focuses on business and production side of things. “For the first collection, I was thinking a lot about our girl and

Miles Teller Doing OK After Bronco Flips Over In Car Crash

Miles Teller is doing OK after being involved in a car accident Thursday night with his girlfriend, Keleigh Sperry, in California’s San Fernando Valley. The LAPD confirmed to People that Teller’s Bronco flipped over when an Uber driver made a left turn in front of his car. 

The “Whiplash” actor tweeted Friday: “Me and @keleighsperry are okay. I hope the other passengers are as well. The other driver pulled into oncoming traffic and bad accident was unavoidable. This woman’s irrational and ignorant decision put our lives and her passengers in very real danger. Happy we could walk away.”

Teller won’t be blamed for the crash, per authorities. Although Teller and Sperry managed to walk away without injuries, two passengers in the Uber car were taken to the hospital. TMZ has photos of the incident.

Teller, 29, was driving the vehicle with Sperry, 24, in the passenger seat. Police told People that neither drugs nor alcohol played a role in the accident.

This wasn’t the actor’s first brush with a serious car accident. When he was 20 years old, Teller was in a dangerous car crash that almost took his life.

“My buddy lost control of my car going 80 mph. We flipped eight times. I got ejected out the window. The car landed and I was just laying like 50 feet from the car, unconscious, covered in blood. My buddy thought I was dead,” he told ABC News in August.  

Teller plays the lead in the new boxing drama “Bleed For This,” which follows the true story of Vinny Pazienza, a world champion boxer who breaks his neck in a car crash. His character in “Whiplash” also gets into a car accident.

WATCH: “I’d Rather…” – (Avoiding Success)

We pretty much all have things we want – and more often than not they are things we could get… if we put in more of the time and effort necessary to get them. But too often we spend that time on other things – things we wouldn’t claim are more important, but we show what’s important to us by what we consistently spend our resources on. It’s not that we are bad or stupid – we are unconsciously trying to keep ourselves safe. I hope this will help you change your mind about what you spend your valuable time on.

If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the “Tap Out Your Fears” series — which explains the basics of EFT — click here.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

For a picture of the tapping points — and more info on EFT — click here.

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at www.TapWithBrad.com.

For EFT with kids, please visit: www.TheWizardsWish.com.

11 Qualities Every Truly Happy Relationship Has In Common

Chemistry and physical attraction may have brought you and your partner together, but you need more than a spark to maintain a happy, lasting relationship.

With that in mind, we asked marriage therapists to share the one quality they believe couples need to develop in order to stay together for the long haul. Here’s what they had to say.

1. Compassion

“You have to be able to put yourself in your partner’s shoes. Compassion toward your partner allows him or her to feel respected, appreciated and cared for and it fuels the connection, intimacy and partnership. Think of it as the essential food that every healthy relationship needs.” ― Carin Goldstein, a marriage and family therapist in Sherman Oaks, California 

2. Compromise

“So many couples believe that a lack of problems, or the ability to anticipate and avoid them, is a key to a happy relationship. But in my experience, it’s not so much about avoiding problems so much as it is about being able to solve them together. Problems are always going to happen, just as life does. Knowing you can face them together keeps a relationship strong and healthy.” ― Alicia HClark, a psychologist in Washington, D.C.   

3. A sense of humor

“The strongest couples I’ve met have the capacity to laugh at themselves. When a partner can laugh about their own messiness or their wish to have the table set in a certain way, they can communicate what they want without turning their partner into the enemy. Laughing at ourselves instead of judging makes the journey entertaining instead of a constant battle.” ― Ryan Howes, a psychologist in Pasadena, California

4. Trust

“As a specialist in infidelity, I can tell you that trust is the most important thing in a marriage. It takes years to build and a second to break. But it’s more than just sexual fidelity. A spouse is trusted with so much: fears, vulnerabilities, painful wounds from childhood. In a good marriage, a spouse discloses these innermost thoughts and trusts that it won’t be used against them in future arguments.” ― Caroline Madden, a marriage therapist and the author of After A Good Man Cheats: How to Rebuild Trust & Intimacy with Your Wife  

5. Positivity

“We all need to be praised and appreciated but we so often get the opposite ― criticism ― even from our partner. Positivity is needed in relationships, especially ones that have grown past the honeymoon stage. Whether it’s a simple ‘thank you’ or ‘I love you’ or a specific compliment for something done, we all need to hear it. When we praise our partner we strengthen our connection, bond and love.” ― Kurt Smith, a therapist who specializes in counseling for men 

6. Intimacy 

“Sexual and emotional intimacy is the bright shiny star of relationships. Intimacy is the difference between your relationship with your barista and your relationship with your spouse. You build intimacy over time. Intimacy is the feeling of belonging and being loved. It’s the feeling of being known and understood. It’s the feeling of being accepted and appreciated. If you have ever experienced or heard someone describe their relationship as hollow or empty, it’s probably because it’s lacking intimacy.” ― Laura Heck, a marriage and family therapist in Salt Lake City, Utah

7. Mutual respect

“Life tends to throw some unexpected curveballs along the course of a relationship. The one quality that consistently helps couples through adversity or tragedy is mutual respect. Self-esteem is essential to feel secure and satisfied with yourself so it makes sense that a high esteem and respect for your partner is an essential ingredient in a lasting relationship, both in joyous and challenging times.” ―  Elisabeth J. LaMotte, a psychotherapist and founder of the DC Counseling and Psychotherapy Cente

8.  Presence

“Being present is more than just putting down your devices and paying attention ― it’s showing that you’re deeply interested in the inner life of your partner and want to make their world better in any way you can. Being present means freely giving your partner the gift of your full focus and being there for them in a way that’s deeper than just being physically present. It means seeing things from their point of view and not just your own.” ― Debra Campbell, a psychologist and couple’s therapist in Melbourne, Australia

9. Love

“You need to love, honor and cherish one another. These vows are what keep people together happily over the long term. Here’s a brief rundown on what each mean: ‘To love’ means you demonstrate your love. Love is a verb ― an action word. There is no other way to show your spouse you love them except through action. We love through physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time, acts of service and gifts. ‘To honor’ is to respect the one you love. You approach them in conversation in a way that shows you want the best for them and don’t want to harm them. ‘To cherish’ means to show your S.O. how much you value them. You treat them as the special person they are – your one and only.” Becky Whetstone, a marriage family therapist in Little Rock, Arkansas  

10. Understanding

“There’s no problem you can’t resolve when you’re listening to each other and acting like a team. Create regular times during the week when you can talk uninterrupted and don’t let a week go by without a date night. Keep listening and understanding each other. Every ounce of listening effort will pay off tenfold.” ― M. Gary Neuman, a psychotherapist based in Miami Beach, Florida

11.  Friendship

“Couples who are good friends know each other well, give each other the benefit of the doubt and are fond of one another. When you take the time to strengthen your friendship, you’re more successful long-term. Making friendship a priority will help you weather any storm that comes your way.” ― Danielle Kepler, a therapist in Chicago, Illinois

Stephen Colbert Is Thankful For Donald Trump

Stephen Colbert has a lot look forward to in the new year.

In an interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation,” the comedian said he wants to lose some weight (same) and be surprised “every day” in 2017. Most of all, he’s thankful and excited for a Donald Trump presidency ― if only because the president-elect is full of surprises.

What I’m looking forward to? I’m looking forward to being surprised because that’s what you want every day. I want to be surprised. And that’s the great thing about Donald Trump, is that, boy, he did surprise a lot of people, didn’t he?” Colbert told host John Dickerson.

Mr. Trump is such a large figure, that he will continue to be, I think, the story that we can tell with jokes on a daily basis because he keeps breaking rules ― or norms. Not rules. He keeps on breaking norms. And the breaking of those norms is such a surprising thing that it’s, like, a firecracker every day. And you get to report on the sound of that firecracker every day.

Colbert never expected a Trump presidency, and he admitted that a lot of his programming on election night had to be ad-libbed due to the unexpected outcome. But it’s more important than ever to stay focused on what we have: Trump is more than just a comedy opportunity, Colbert said. He’s our future, love it or hate it.

“Now, I have no choice but to actually enjoy this incredible gift every day that Mr. Trump will be,” Colbert said.

Colbert added that he wouldn’t deny Trump a chance to appear on his show. And he could probably use the jump in viewers Trump would provide: Colbert’s ratings haven’t gone his way in the “Late Show’s” first year.

Colbert’s interview with Dickerson will air on “Face the Nation” this Sunday.

‘It Just Dawned On Me To Make A Cross Out Of Them’

Ronald Freeman simply wants someone to see what he had done.

For a year, Freeman had pondered how best to memorialize the nine black parishioners killed at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. He was working a lot with wood and he knew that he wanted to draw their images on wood. But how should he portray all them together in one piece of art?

“It just dawned on me to make a cross out of them,” he told The Huffington Post.

The materials sat in his studio for a while as Freeman battled with his own emotions. “There is a bit of sadness involved when I get to drawing people who have lost their lives in a violent way,” the artist said, adding that he also worried that their families might feel disrespected by it.

He finished building the wooden cross this past July. He drew the faces using charcoal pencils. A Bible at the center of the 6 feet high by 5 feet wide cross symbolizes the Bible Study service at which the victims lost their lives.

Six women and three men died in the shooting at Mother Emanuel: Rev. Clementa Pinckney, Tywanza Sanders, Cynthia Hurd, Rev. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Myra Thompson, Ethel Lance, Rev. Daniel Simmons, Rev. DePayne Middleton-Doctor and Susie Jackson. 

Their killer, a white supremacist named Dylann Roof, was convicted earlier this month.

Freeman, who lives in New Jersey, has only been creating art seriously for five years after being laid off from a corporate job at Verizon Wireless. When he completed the cross, he wanted people to see it. A video detailing his artwork has appeared in a New Jersey art gallery, but Freeman hopes the work can be shown more widely, including to the victims’ families.

“Even though I don’t know them, I was thinking about them and their families,” Freeman said.

He tried to contact the church itself but wasn’t able to get any substantial leads. Regardless, he thinks his artwork can help people heal while serving as a constant reminder of what happened on June 17, 2015.

The families of those killed surprised many by quickly forgiving Roof. Forgiveness is a hallmark of black Christianity and often a way for black people to battle through racial trauma.

“I don’t know if I could forgive this guy like that. But … this is so rooted deep in religion and faith,” Freeman said. “They’re taught to forgive.”

He noted that the parishioners were also demonstrating their Christian faith when they graciously welcomed Roof, a stranger, into their Bible study service. “They had no suspicion in the world,” he said.  

Roof laughed as he confessed shortly after his arrest. He’d fired at least 74 shots and used seven magazines, according to evidence found at the crime scene. “Somebody had to do it,” he told police officers, adding that “black people are killing white people every day. …. What I did is so minuscule compared to what they do to white people every day.”

One final aspect of the horrific story that really stands out for Freeman is how Roof was arrested.

“The fact that he didn’t get shot, a bullet that also rings out because they shoot so many unarmed black males,” Freeman said. “So you got this guy with a gun, he’s a suspect, they pull him over in the car and they didn’t so much as pull out their guns.”

In fact, some officers did pull out their weapons, but it is shocking to see how quickly they re-holstered them ― well before Roof was under their control.

“It speaks to race, inequality and where we’re at right now as far as the inequality of African-Americans,” Freeman said. “We got black men being killed for just holding up their hands and they’re getting shot to death, running away and they’re getting shot to death.”

What’s The Best Thing The Duchess Of Cambridge Wore This Year?

The Duchess of Cambridge had quite a year. She worked to end stigma surrounding mental illness, showed off her photography chops, hiked a huge mountain in Bhutan without a visible trace of sweat, hung out with the Obamas, guest edited The Huffington Post, wore tiaras, shopped at a thrift store, took a selfie with Serena Williams… the list goes on. 

As usual, the former Kate Middleton did it all with the utmost style and poise. We should know, as we’ve spent many an hour this year tracking her every move

It’s difficult to choose a favorite between the many dresses she wore (and re-wore) in 2016, so we’ve laid out our top 11 for you to choose from. We’re partial to the white Self Portrait gown, but that’s likely because we now know Kate has at least one item in her closet that none other than Paris Hilton has in hers. 

Take a look and pick your favorite below.

Carrie Fisher Reportedly Has Heart Attack On Airplane

Carrie Fisher was flying from London to Los Angeles when she reportedly suffered a heart attack, TMZ reported on Friday. 

The outlet said fellow passengers on the plane administered CPR to the “Star Wars” actress and author. According to TMZ, United Airlines said its crew reported Fisher as “unresponsive” when she was taken off the plane at LAX.

Fisher was reportedly taken to a hospital immediately after her plane landed. According to a report from the Los Angeles Times, the actress is allegedly in critical condition.

“It was scary. There was a team of about six emergency workers pushing her out in a stretcher,” a source who was at the airport told People. 

Witnesses said the 60-year-old actress stopped breathing at one point: 

TMZ is now reporting that the actress went 15 mins without a pulse while paramedics administered CPR. The outlet is also reporting that she is now hooked up to a ventilator at UCLA Medical Center.

The actress has most recently been on a book tour for her new memoir, The Princess Diarist

Peter Mayhew (aka Chewbacca), William Shatner, Christina Applegate, E.L. James and more took to social media to express their well-wishes for Fisher: 

This is a developing story. The Huffington Post has reached out to reps for the actress and will update this post accordingly.

Golf Resorts in Cancún, Puerto Vallarta, Baja & Beyond: Where to Play & Where to Stay in Mexico

Golf Resorts in Cancún, Puerto Vallarta, Baja & Beyond: Where to Play & Where to Stay in Mexico


Golf resorts-it’s a specialized niche for a savvy group that knows what it wants. What they want is golf, so the Nicols have devoted pages of attention to yardage and par, green fees, and special course features for hundreds of golf courses in Mexico. Included are Cancún, Yucatan, Baja Sur, Cabo San Lucas, Acapulco, Ixtapa, Manzanillo, Mazatlan and beyond. But there are other facets to consider as well, because the point here is to take a vacation, a golf vacation, where you get to luxuriate in your scenic vistas, eat your sumptuous meals, and play your 18 holes, too. There are resorts for all sorts, with rustic lodges or posh hotels; full-scale gourmet pampering or low-key environments; all-golf, all-the-time atmospheres; or resorts that offer the works-tennis, fishing, sailing, or skiing-for the spouses who just aren’t as intent on golf, perhaps, as you. The important thing is that all types of golf holidays are possible, and the Nicols have done the legwork so all you have to do is browse, choose, and make the reservations. “. the most useful guidebook. a great reference.” – The Traveling Golfer. “If you love golf, Golf Resorts is for you.” – Relax Magazine. “Make sure you have a copy on hand. This tome is the only pre-trip guide you’ll need to research not only golf courses, but nearby lodging, restaurants, and additional recreation – for after-golf or non-golfing spouses.” – Northwest Airlines WorldTraveler Magazine. “A guide written by golfers for golfers. Hundreds of resorts are described in this book, with details including fees, course profile (par, hazards, yardage), resident pro information, accommodations (with prices), dining options and equipment rentals. All establishments are open to the public.” – Amazon reviewer

Chasing Oliver Hazard Perry chronicles Craig Heimbuch’s journey through time and place in hopes of bringing to life a history that has haunted him since he was young – the story of Oliver Perry and the War of 1812. In the spirit of Tony Horwitz, Heimbuch travels to the battlefields, talks to historians, re-enactors, and fellow travelers to create a book that is funny, moving, and very informative. Perry’s story and legacy have stuck with Heimbuch through his entire life. He was just a boy when he first stood at the base of the Perry Monument at Put-in-Bay and listened to his father tell the story of how Perry scribbled on a scrap of paper a report to the American general laying siege to Fort Detroit his famous line, “We have met the enemy, and they are ours.

Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Review

Editor’s Note: IGN is going to be reviewing a lot more GPUs, gaming mice, keyboards, and other hardware in 2017. We’re kicking off our renewed tech coverage with deep dives into some of 2016’s staples. Hit up the comments below for more details, and to give your feedback. We want it.

It can be a bit bewildering trying to decipher Logitech’s mouse lineup since it’s so vast, but one thing is clear: the G502 Proteus Spectrum ($ 59 on Amazon) is its top-of-the-line wired gaming mouse for right handers, and it’s got more features than most home appliances. It’s a replacement for the G502 Proteus Core, with the word Core being ditched in favor of the word Spectrum since this version has RGB lighting (naturally). It also features the company’s most accurate sensor, 11 programmable buttons, and you can customize its weight as well. It’s expensive at around $ 60 but considering its dizzying list of features the price matches its performance.

Jury Recommends Death for California Man Who Killed 4 While Wearing GPS Device

An Orange County, Calif. jury recommended death Wednesday for serial killer Steven Dean Gordon for killing four women while wearing an electronic monitoring device due to his status as a sex offender.

“It was appropriate,” Orange County Deputy District Attorney Larry Yellin tells PEOPLE about the recommendation. “I was pleased that the jury came down on the side I thought was just. He is a narcissistic, controlling, homicidal sociopath.”

The decision didn’t come as a big surprise to 47-year-old Gordon, who told jurors after he was found guilty on Dec. 15 of the special-circumstances murder and rape that they made the right decision.

“If you kill four people like this in cold blood you deserve to die,” Gordon told the jurors during his closing argument, the Orange County Register reports.

Gordon, who represented himself during the capital murder trial, was convicted in the deaths of slayings of Kianna Jackson, 20, Josephine Vargas, 34, Martha Anaya, 28, and 21-year-old Jarrae Estepp.

Gordon was wearing a GPS tracking device when he and registered sex offender Frank Cano, also wearing a GPS anklet, allegedly sexually assaulted and murdered the four women and dumped their bodies in trash bins. The killings took place in 2013 and 2014.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

The duo, who authorities say lived in a transient camp in the back of a paint and body shop in Anaheim and in Gordon’s Toyota 4Runner, allegedly picked up the women at known prostitution haunts in Santa Ana and Anaheim, California.

“They were both on parole with the same parole officer for similar crimes and they became friends,” says Yellin.

GPS Monitors Led to Apprehension of Suspects

Yellin says Gordon and Cano were finally caught after police began investigating the murder of Estepp, who was found on a conveyor belt at a recycling plant in Anaheim.

“When they were looking at that murder, they looked at the GPS coordinates for anybody who was at the place of her last phone call, which we knew was on March 13, 2014,” he says. “The only person whose coordinates showed up was Cano’s. He became the first subject.”

Yellin says authorities zeroed in on Gordon after they started tailing Cano.

“ started seeing knew each other, and were spending a lot of time together, as they were starting to tail Cano,” Yellin says.

Referring to Gordon, Yellin says, “There is this guy who is always around, and so they do background on him and see he was also a sex offender. And he had been on a GPS monitor during the time of our first two crimes, so when they go back to check those they realize he and Cano’s tracks match identically. So then they think maybe they have two serial killers.”

Police said Gordon confessed to the gruesome slayings and described how he and Cano allegedly picked up each woman and killed them.

• Pick up PEOPLE’s special edition True Crime Stories: Cases That Shocked America, on sale now, for the latest on Casey Anthony, JonBenét Ramsey and more.

In one of the cases, Gordon allegedly told police that Cano was hiding in the backseat of Gordon’s Toyota 4Runner when they picked up Jackson, took her to a paint and body shop in Anaheim and sexually assaulted her and killed her on October 6, 2013.

Gordon allegedly said they killed her because their GPS bracelets put them at the crime scene, according to the Orange County Register. According to court documents obtained by the paper, Cano and Gordon allegedly debated killing Estepp before going through with it.

Gordon took the stand earlier this week and told the jury that it was Cano who strangled the women — but said he was also to blame.

“I’m just as responsible for what happened to these five girls as my co-defendant,” Gordon told the jurors, the Register reports. “Even though I changed my mind with the last girl, the fact that it still happened means I have to be held accountable.”

“I believe they are equally culpable,” alleges Yellin. “I believe that if there is a division of labor between the two of them Gordon is more of the planner and Cano is more of the actor. I believe they both participated at a high level.”

Alleged Killer Duo ‘Incredibly Rare’: Prosecutor

The bodies of the other victims have not been found, but authorities suspect they were killed at the paint and body shop, dumped in trash bins and are now in landfills.

During the trial, Gordon also argued that the killings could have been prevented if authorities had kept a closer eye on the pair.

“He was very angry and accusatory of failings,” says Yellin. “They are responsible for their murders and I am not going to absolve them of any responsibility and lay it at the feet of anyone else.”

Cano, 30, who also faces the death penalty, has a pre-trial hearing scheduled for Dec. 29. His trial date has not been set. He has pleaded not guilty.

Gordon is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 3.

“It is incredibly rare,” says Yellin about the duo’s alleged spree. “I was shocked we had one and I was fall-over shocked that we had two.”

Designers Pay Tribute to Franca Sozzani of Vogue Italia on Instagram

Fashion exponents are paying tribute on Instagram to the legendary editor in chief of Vogue Italia Franca Sozzani, who passed away in Milan on Thursday at the age of 66. Designers such as Donatella Versace, Riccardo Tisci, Anthony Vaccarello, Giambattista Valli and Marco de Vincenzo, among others, shared pictures and memories on the social media.
Givenchy’s Tisci posted an Instagram saying: “I am heartbroken about my dear friend @francasozzani1 gone too soon. My heart is with all of your loved ones.

Rubin Singer Pre-Fall 2017

Pre-fall was an exercise in logic for Rubin Singer. “For us, it’s a precursor to fall, and at the same time, it delivers in summer,” he said. “So, I divided it in two parts.” The collection’s straight-up summer supply was expressed in light colors and airy dress silhouettes: a gardenia print fit-and-flare, a graffiti printed style with a lace overlay and a multicolor lace dress with puffed sleeves stood out for being wearable and highly designed. The true fall portion of the lineup came in a predictably darker palette and was more structured than the breezy warm weather stuff, relying on the severe shapes for which Singer is known.
There were some nice surprises. A deep-V peplum dress with a double corset sounds tricky but was actually pretty sleek on the bodice. “It’s an important silhouette for me” said Singer of the double corset. And lest he be forever pigeon-holed as an eveningwear designer, Singer revealed that a new capsule collection will bow in 16 Neiman Marcus doors, with its focus on a range of ready-to-wear and daywear. “The demand for separates is definitely there,” he said.

‘Bachelor’ Contestants Respond To Claims That Their Love Is A Publicity Stunt

Yes, two “Bachelor” contestants found love with each other. No, they’re not doing it for the publicity. 

Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlon appear on the January 2017 cover of Maxim Australia after being named “Couple of the Year.” The two revealed that their relationship turned into more than just a friendship before “The Bachelor Australia” even aired earlier this year. One of the “funniest” ― and most pervasive ― rumors they’re heard thus far is that their romance is only for “publicity or money.”

“I think without people properly knowing us, and seeing us together, it can all seem a bit ‘too good to be true,’” Marx told Maxim. “Some people can be fairly negative, but there is also so much support so we are trying to focus on that.” 

“Usually we just say, ‘OK, you can think what you like,’” Scanlon addd. “I don’t have the time or energy to spend trying to convince the critics that we are together. It just makes me sad that we live in such a cynical world where a lot of people choose to believe it is a lie rather than having trust and faith in that it is the truth.” 

The two hope their Maxim appearance will help change people’s mindsets, particularly in their native Australia, where LGBT couples are still fighting for the right to marry

“I’m feeling really proud, but also hoping it might change some people’s attitudes about same-sex relationships,” Marx said. 

“I feel so incredibly honored and grateful to Maxim for believing in us and for helping us break down barriers and misunderstanding around same-sex relationships,” Scanlon added. “I love Megan so much and I’m excited to share that love with Australia.”

Scanlon took to Instagram to share the cover and take the haters to task for their issues with her relationship. 

“If you think that this is some fake anti feminist lesbianised [sic] sexual male fantasy then you are only aiding in the [judgmental] backward thinking of society whether you are straight, gay, bi or however else you choose to label yourself,” she wrote. 

Oh hey hey there just me, the real human being with real human emotions behind this account. See my face…im excited and im super proud of what @megan.leto.marx and I have achieved here. I knew it would be controversial, i knew it would ruffle feathers, i knew there would be criticism and judgement but guess what, I did it anyway! Why? Because (a) im an experience junkie as per my bio and it was pretty damn awesome to be asked to be on the cover of Maxim. (b) I do what I want because I want to; not for any body else; not to impress or offend or any other reason than because I WANT TO and I honestly don't need anyone's approval. (c) I have always and will always continue to advocate acceptance and no labels in all areas of life. I dont label myself or my relationship; I simply live and love and create life on my own terms. (d) @maxim_aus may be sold as a mens mag, but what does that matter? I really like reading it! and they have shown us more support than most other Australian media and i am proud to shoot with a publication who is as much about pushing boundaries as we are. The shoot was tasteful and had less nudity than some of our other shared photos on social media and the interview had everything we wanted to say. (e) if you think that this is some fake anti feminist lesbianised sexual male fantasy then you are only aiding in the judgemental backward thinking of society whether you are straight, gay, bi or however else you choose to label yourself. #dropthemic #hatersgotnorighttohate #takeyourbestshot #enoughisenough #noregrets #nolabels #acceptance #stopbeingsodamnjudgemental #loveislove #lifeonyourterms #idowhatiwant #donttellmehowtolivemylife

Life Is Beautiful, But We Need The Hard Times To Remember That

“I suppose in the end, the whole of life becomes an act of letting go, but what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye.”

-Yann Martel, Life of Pi

I’m confused about my life lately. Plotlines I thought might play out for months or even years have recently fizzled out at a moment’s notice. Much too soon.

I woke up to my dog’s death the other day, and I don’t think it’s quite hit me yet. I still think I’m about to see her come around the corner again. Maybe that’s me just suppressing something.

There’s a girl I was interested in for a while but I just realized in an instant my life was heading in an opposite direction. Why couldn’t I just notice this before?

Then there are those friends that tell me one thing while acting another. Talking a big game while not showing up when the lights come on. I’m letting go of them, too.

I’m headed into a long winter here in the Northeast United States. Every day the darkness closes in around me as things keep changing and leaving me. What a sad way to think about things, but I have to write what I feel.

What do I make of all this change, though–all this darkness?

There’s a great quote in one of my favorite plays that goes like this:

“Oh, if life were made of moments
Even now and then a bad one!
But if life were only moments
Then you’d never know you had one”

-Into The Woods

These lines get to a crucial truth about life that most of us forget about. What it means is that if there weren’t dark moments in our lives, we wouldn’t appreciate the good ones.

This past weekend I saw some old friends in Las Vegas. We head out there every year to hash out the past memories while making glorious new ones. We rented a limo and went to some clubs and strolled around laughing for 36 straight hours.

SQUAD.

A photo posted by Tom Kuegler (@tomkuegler) on

It’s hard to put my finger on why I feel so much joy when I see my best friends again. Maybe it’s because our heads try to shield our hearts from the off-chance that our friends aren’t going to show up and that this world really does suck and they’re all just going to laugh at us and say “Look! We got him, too!”

But then when that door does open and you do see them again your heart realizes that the worst lies about life are just that, and that despite what we see on the news, or hear from fake people, or were taught growing up, that this world is a good one. There are people that love us here. We can stare up at the stars with a heart full of hope for our time on this rock in the middle of the galaxy. We are loved.

I wonder why my life has been so rocky lately. I wonder why my friends have treated me badly and why I’ve treated other people badly. I think about why I don’t listen to my friends more.

Then it hits me.

We need the bad times as much as the good. We need the times when we stare up at the cloudy night sky in order to appreciate the nights when we do see the stars shining through.

I guess the questions we have now make the answers so satisfying later.

The confusion I feel now about my life is just going to make things sweeter later on. And, in turn, any unintentional harm I inflict on others could do the same things for them as well.

This life is a wild one. Too often we have bad days and broken hearts, but every now and then we get to go to Vegas for a glorious couple of hours. It’s those moments that I live for, as well as the people that share those moments with me.

Put an End to Gift Shaming

The holidays are upon us, and there’s a lot of focus on gift giving. I wanted to take a moment to talk about wedding gifts and what to do if you don’t receive the gift you want or expected — or if you don’t receive a gift at all. Today’s Ask Cheryl question is from a reader that felt attacked when she couldn’t afford to give a timely wedding gift to her niece. Read on for my thoughts on this and putting an end to gift shaming…

Dear Cheryl,

My niece was married in London in July. She and her husband then had the reception here in the States in August. I was strapped for money at the time of the reception and didn’t give a gift on the day of the reception. I was planning on sending the gift (money) shortly afterwards. When they were going over their gifts and realized there wasn’t anything from me, her mother (my sister) sent me a 3-page email at work ripping me apart and even going back as far as 14 years of things that bothered her and which had nothing to do with my niece. This has caused anger and a very awkward situation. I still want to make good. Should I send the gift in a Thanksgiving or Christmas card along with a note?

Deborah

Dear Deborah,

I am so sorry to hear about this experience. From an etiquette point of view, you did nothing wrong. When only invited to the reception and not the wedding, a gift is not required and should not be expected. It is fine to give a gift if you choose to; and it’s also fine to wait to send a gift until you can afford to do so. However, since it was your niece, you probably should have mentioned to your sister or niece that you intended to give a gift, but that it would be delayed.

First, I would send a short email back to your sister — but take the high road. Simply explain that you planned to send a gift as soon as you could afford it. You might say something like, “I’m sorry you were upset. I should have let you or (name of your niece) know that I would be sending a gift late.”

Also, I think your idea is perfectly fine. Send a note or letter to your niece explaining your situation and wishing her all the happiness in the world.

As it appears your sister’s anger is about more than the wedding gift, you might want to find some time to talk with your sister about the other issues.

The Bigger Picture: Gift Shaming versus Gratitude

Wedding gifts are a tradition in our country. They are a token of affection and support for the couple getting married. But no one is entitled to them and no one should be upset or offended when an “expected” gift is not received. There can be all sorts of reasons. Have a little compassion folks!

I’m disgusted by all the things I read where couples are angry or complaining because someone didn’t spend enough or get them a nice enough gift. Oh the entitlement! What happened to gratitude? Be thankful for what you receive and forget about what you don’t. Most people want to give a gift that a couple will love and cherish, but not everyone will do a great job. Some may even forget or just choose not to. Forgive them. I shouldn’t even have to say this, but if you invited someone to your wedding for the gift, then that’s the wrong reason.

Gifts are a nice bonus, but a wedding is about bringing friends and family together to celebrate your love. It’s about celebrating with those you care about and those that care about you. –The End

Watch The Holiday-Version Of ‘It’s Debra Messing, You Gays!’

Debra Messing returned to Billy Eichner’s show, “Billy on the Street,” to surprise New Yorkers with the gift of nothing more than her presence.

In the segment, Eichner and Messing run around New York while Eichner yells, “It’s Debra Messing, you gays,” at random passerby.

(They did this bit back in 2013, as well.)

The true joy strangers feel when realizing they’re looking at Debra Messing looking back at them should smash any cold heart this holiday season. You could even say this will fill you with Grace.

 

Watch the two spread holiday cheer below:

And if you want more context into why Eichner is screaming at people ― make sure to check out his recent “Fresh Air” episode with Terry Gross. The comedian talks in length about the history of “Billy on the Street.”

Artist Mines Google Maps For The Literal Saddest Places On Earth

Depressed Lake, California U.S #depressed

A photo posted by @sadtopographies on

You think your hometown is depressing? Take a little visit to California’s Depressed Lake ― then we’ll talk.

Australian artist Damien Rudd has been mining Google Maps for the literal saddest places on earth ― the lakes, rivers, roads, and mountains whose very names will bring out all your feelings of insecurity, loneliness and mortality in full force. He uploads them onto his Instagram @sadtopographies, a one-stop shop for geographic destinations even more of a tragic mess than you. 

Rudd started the project after encountering Mount Hopeless in his native Australia, a spot named for its barren landscape. Understandably amused, he resolved to hunt the globe for similarly pessimistic locales. “In Australia, like the U.S. and Canada, there are many depressing place names that are connected to the dark history of early colonialism, and the mishaps of explorers and settlers,” he explained in an interview with Quartz.

If the holidays are making you blue, and you’re just dying to plan the bleakest vacation of all time, check out the most pitiful destinations on earth below.

Brandinista’s Best + Worst Brands of 2016 Music, Theater, Retail, and More

I started Best + Worst Brands as a weekly column in 2009. It was a way for me to talk about what I love (brand, culture, and design) while opening a window into my life (therapy). A form of creative nonfiction-New Journalism. Thank you for reading and sharing, sending me stuff to review, and encouraging me to write.

To note, my criteria for selecting 2016’s Best and Worst brands are as follows:
1. Engagement
2. Transparency
3. Relevancy
4. Impact
5. Endurance

I wanted this list to be expansive across industries and to note, obvious failures like Wells Fargo and Samsung have not been isolated because my peers at Forbes and The Wall Street Journal have done a good job of slamming them already. I’m writing original content here☺ (in my Jersey Shore voice).

With Jon Stewart off the air and a desert of researched and fact-checked truths on nearly every cable and online news platform, I found solace watching the patriotic Saturday Night Live cast through the iridescent suds in my bathtub (I have a laptop shelf near the tub). They stood up for integrity in ways the Hillary Campaign missed. Where SNL was unapologetic and acute in their criticism of Mr. Trump, the Hillary Campaign was roundabout in their interpretation of data and of Bill Clinton’s good instinct like a bad 1970’s rearview mirror.

Who didn’t love watching Dolly Parton emerge with Pentatonix for “Jolene”? Although my love for country music is isolated to Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, and Blake Shelton, Jolene is one of my top five songs of all time. We saw Parton rally once again to help her fellow Tennesseans affected by the wildfires. Damn Dolly, you look good and you are one true soul.

Another blond I am crushing on is Megyn Kelly. She stood up to Trump, Roger Ailes, and Newt Gingrich. Kelly has advanced the cause of women in media and that’s important to me because as a VP of Creative Media only 3% of creative directors are women. The truth is as Gillian Tett of the Financial Times said, “… a world where even a female Fox TV star can end up being trolled by a Republican presidential candidate is a peculiar place” and Kelly is one of the few relevant role models for female journalists (Christiane Amanpour, respek ✌). Megyn Kelly on our BEST category also goes in our WORST category for publicly claiming that both Santa and Jesus are white.

Megyn Kelly best worst alona elkayam

Inspired by the better angels of our nature, comes two great social media moments. Like a local Oreo cookie moment, The Standard Hotel offered free rooms on Instagram to those affected by the trash can briefcase explosion in New York City on September 17. And who will ever forget citizen Josh Billinson for his Joe Biden / Obama memes? Those memes gave me the “I found money in my pockets folding laundry” kind of joy.

Standard Hotel Best Worst Brand Alona Elkayam

Obama Biden Meme Best Worst Brand Alona Elkayam

Unlike Dolly, Anthony Weiner is not a one true soul. Though he wasn’t a smoker, Anthony once taught me this cigarette trick where he’d flip it into his mouth from his hands a few feet away. We knew each other socially until the early aughts and I defended him after the scandal in 2011 and 2013-you know, silly macho indiscretions like Kennedy. After the ‘Son and Erection’ photo, it was clear he was immune to his own brand of sexual addiction and hubris. This was hard to watch.

The kind of macho I can support comes from Chubbies, an ecommerce retailer, whose tagline Sky’s Out, Thighs Out comes with a mission to rid the human species of those ‘thigh constricting garments’ called cargo pants. While this brand is only about five years old, it has created a strong community of people bounded by the idea that we should not take ourselves too seriously. We need some levity for today’s world.

Vera Bradley, unfortunately alienated their community with an awkward new logo design and Victorian ad campaign that did the opposite of Always’ #LikeAGirl. The Vera Bradley target is a GenZ female that plays on her school’s varsity team plus a traveling team and wants to be a journalist or athlete, not a stepford wife. Yes, they may like lipstick and chivalry, but they also like to be taken seriously. Look to Teen Vogue who quickly understood their morphing teenage market with beauty and brains content. Want to know what the top shared stories in Teen Vogue were in 2016?

Uber had me shaking my head with their new identity redesign. When they unveiled their logo, you would have thought they also invented the design process and cultural attunement. The “differing pattern for each country” concept is an amateur nineties technique. Any brand expert (should they like to consult one in the future) will tell you that identity must be simple enough to recognize, but also to facilitate and maintain. That logo drives me crazy. Every time I search for the Uber app on my phone, I can’t find it because I won’t ever connect Uber with a backwards ‘c.’ I mean why would I? Why would anyone?

Let’s talk about good design rollout. Snapchat rolled out their Spectacles with big yellow vending machines (Snapbots) at predetermined locations in countdown fashion garnering loads of earned media. Plus they positioned their glasses as a toy, not device. Check here to find a Snapbot coming to a location near you. We can’t leave out one of my favorite product category when we talk about product design: sneakers. The most beautiful sneaker this year has to be NikeLab Air Force 1 Mid in Vachetta Tan designed by Hender Scheme. It has this beautiful silhouette with a translucent sole and the vegetable dyed all over color leather is just delicious. The price? $ 165. Not ridiculous.

Now look Mr. Trump, I don’t want you to be assassinated, but your brand of post truth is making a ‘Gaslight Nation’ out of us where it’s ok and expected to manipulate and be manipulated. It’s already happening to me (hello shady Thievery Corporation ticket seller. It is not ok for you to sell me ghetto scanned in pdf tickets that the venue couldn’t scan. And yes, it’s perfectly normal for me to be bitchy about it). Kids all over America will gaslight their parents about the broccoli eating even though it’s still on their plate. They will say, “I ate the broccoli. All of it. It’s so fantastic how I ate all of it. Look at how great my broccoli eating stomach and mouth are and look at how great a job I did,” while the broccoli remains, all of it, on the plate. For the next four years, I will just do what I did during the election and pretend our reality was just a bad dream and that The West Wing was my real life. Josiah Bartlet for President. Thank you Aaron Sorkin.

Finally, a moral America cannot exist within this bubble where racial, gender, and religious inequality is normalized. Hamilton the play gives us unity in a disheartened America. It’s a common language that both Dick Cheney and Obama speak. A place where we all can agree in the awesomeness of the courage in the men that founded our country.

I know we’re out of attention span, so I’ll just list the rest. Let me know if you thought I missed anything. I’ll look into it.

More Best Brands

  • Caspar: For their smart sleep focused content marketing site, Van Winkle. Bravo.
  • Carpool Karaoke: James Corden, You Make America Happy. Thank You.
  • Domino’s Pizza: I am not the first to write about this, but I could not leave them out. First the pizza ordering emoticon and now the Google Home command integration, Domino’s dominates market innovation. And they’ve got the brand loyalty to back that up. Listen here.

Worst

  • Facebook: Facebook Live is great, but fake news sucks. Your priority should be cleaning up the feed.
  • State of Rhode Island Logo and Tagline. Logo designed by my hero Milton Glaser isn’t so bad, but the tagline Warmer and Cooler could only work if the brand guidelines required the tagline only appear with a recitation of it by Zach Galifianakis
  • Cheetos Brand Jewelry: Why? Cheesiest content marketing ever. Yes, in this case I call Cheetos Jewelry- content- because its purpose is solely driven to sell Cheetos. And it’s not merchandising since it doesn’t have any branding on it.
  • IPhone 7: This wireless earphone nonsense is insane. I like the wire. It’s a signal to people that I am in the middle of something. That’s why the Bluetooth earpiece isn’t a fad anymore because people looked like they were all talking to themselves.
  • Tronc: This is Tribune’s Online Content division that partners with brands in creating native and branded content. The name hurts. I just don’t understand how global brands can develop names and logos in a vacuum like this. Names are the first customer touchpoint and can determine brand success. Letters and sounds create positive or negative sentiments in our mind. William Safire would have written a brilliant piece on this. Still miss you Mr. Safire.
  • New Balance: Well, you know what you did.

I Made My BF Watch ‘Love Actually.’ These Are His Unvarnished Thoughts.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year ― when everyone watches our favorite problematic Christmas movie, “Love Actually!”

I mean that “favorite” part ― I am always charmed by this movie in spite of its issues. So I decided it would be fun to see someone’s raw reactions to what have become sort of institutionalized complaints about the plot after 13 years of people debating this movie

Plus my boyfriend is constantly trying to show me weird sci-fi and fantasy things that I can’t follow because there are no women talking to each other, so I decided to give him a dose of his own medicine and show him a movie so many women love and love to hate. 

Below, the storylines ranked from his most to least favorite, with his impressions of each one. (The names of each storyline are all his as well.)

1. “Liam Neeson In ‘Fight Club’”

Most people would probably refer to this storyline as “depressed widower and his grieving son,” since it’s the one in which Liam Neeson plays the step-parent of Sam, whose mother and Neeson’s wife has just died.

This ended up being my boyfriend’s favorite storyline because he developed a “Fight Club”-esque theory that “Sam,” the son, was just an alter-ego imagined by Daniel to help him process his sorrow. And I have to say, he almost had me believing it. This kid doesn’t talk to another human being besides Liam Neeson until the last 10 minutes of the movie. 

Not to mention that the relationship between these two is weird and inappropriate. Why does Neeson keep talking about sex and using the F-word to this kid? Do they not really have “parenting” as we know it in the UK? 

2. “Bill Nighy As My Style Icon”

I mean, who doesn’t love this story line? Bill Nighy (quite singularly) plays a washed-up pop star who finds new popularity by dropping truth bombs and admitting that his “new” single is commercialistic Christmas crap. 

The only thing that could have made it better, according to my boyfriend, is if Nighy had professed romantic love to his manager at the end.

3. “Naked Martin Freeman, Who Is The Only Person Who Actually Falls In Real Love”

Boyfriend was more charmed than I’ve ever seen anyone be by this storyline, of the two movie stand-ins who meet cute while simulating sex scenes nude for lighting purposes. He kept saying “This storyline feels the most honest.” It probably helped that he likes Martin Freeman from “being in a bunch of “nerd stuff” like “The Hobbit,” “Sherlock” and “Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy.”

4. “Colin Firth Is A Psychic Man-Child And Falls In Love With The World’s Worst Maid”

There were some parts of this movie that I was sort of side-eyeing my boyfriend as they came up to see how he’d react, and this was one of them. Lindy West famously tore this storyline a new one for treating a woman like an object and having Colin Firth fall in love with a woman he can’t communicate with.

As a refresher: Colin Firth’s “Jamie” gets cheated on by his girlfriend, retreats to a remote cabin to write a crime thriller, and falls in love with a local maid who speaks only Portuguese. 

Boyfriend gave the love story a pass, since based on the subtitles, Jamie and Aurelia share a psychic connection, but he asked a question that is now all I can think about regarding this storyline: “Why does this guy need a maid?”

He’s so right! He’s just one guy, and it’s not like she’s even cooking ― we see her bring him a croissant and a few cups of tea. (She also doesn’t really clean very much ― in the scene where the pages of Jamie’s book go flying into the lake, there are like 3 empty mugs on the table.) And it seems like she’s there every day! Why does he need a full-time servant at his cabin in the woods?! 

5. “Hugh Grant Is A Chubby Chaser”

If you’ll recall, this storyline stars vintage Hugh Grant (hubba) as the prime minister romancing a member of his house staff whose name is Natalie. 

The best part of watching this movie with my boyfriend BY FAR was seeing his pure, unblemished reaction to all the times Natalie gets called fat. The first time she is referred to as “the chubby girl” he just started screeching “WHAT? WHAT. F***ING WHAT?”

Yes, honey, we’ve all been screaming that for 13 years.

He continued, “Does everyone have body dysmorphia around this lady? She’s NOT fat! And wouldn’t she be known as the lady who said ‘f**k’ twice to the prime minister and not the ‘fat’ lady?”

Later he asked, “Why is everyone fat-shaming the nice lady?”

Then when her dad refers to her as “Plumpy,” he lost his s**t all over again. “WHAT? WHAT? THAT’S HER F***ING DAD!!!” 

He also couldn’t handle the scene where the prime minister basically tells the George W. Bush/Bill Clinton hybrid American president to go to hell during a press conference.

He said, “Did he just compromise international relations because the president macked on his NOT-girlfriend?”

He also felt extremely uncomfortable with the prime minister getting involved with someone who is both on his staff and well beneath him, as well as with when he later basically torpedoes Natalie’s career so he can get his bone on.

6. “Alan Rickman Is Bad At Infidelity And Christmas” 

In this humdinger of a storyline, Alan Rickman gets tempted into cheating on his wife Emma Thompson by his assistant, who is a walking archetype of an evil seductress named Mia. 

 I’ll just let my boyfriend speak for himself on this one.

“OK, so Alan Rickman is the worst at infidelity. They’re flirting in the most public places where they could possible get caught ― in the office, in front of his WIFE. Also, he should know you don’t buy jewelry for women if you don’t know exactly what kind of jewelry she wants. And you should NOT give your mistress a 300-dollar necklace and then give your wife a CD. THAT’S what Emma Thompson should have been upset about. The mistress got a cinnamon stick and flowers! Emma Thompson probably already had that CD. It wasn’t even wrapped in plastic!!! That was a USED CD!” 

He also repeatedly referred to Mia as a “sex witch.” 

7. “Laura Linney Needs To Get Laid” 

In this storyline, Laura Linney plays an office worker named Sarah who is silently in love with her co-worker Karl. They almost get together the night of the office Christmas party, but their romance is ultimately thwarted by the intrusion of Sarah’s mentally ill brother, who calls her a lot and whom she feels responsible for. 

My boyfriend did not care for Karl. 

He referred to him as a “manic pixie dream guy” who is so used to everyone dropping everything to touch his hot bod that he freaks out when they don’t. He also said he “seems like the kind of guy who would take your hands and rub them over his body.” Laura Linney deserves better.

8. “Colin Sandwich Man Stumbles Onto A Wisconsin Porn Shoot” 

“That dude flying to America and having sex with a bunch of sorority people had nothing to do with anything.”

9. “Rick WalkingDead Refuses To Be Friends With His BFF’s Wife Then Ruins Her Christmas Four Weeks After Her Wedding” 

“Oh, what about the ‘Andrew Lincoln loves his best friend’s wife’ storyline?” I asked him, to which he responded simply, “I hate it.”

WE ALL HATE IT! RIGHT ANSWER, BOYFRIEND! 

You remember, Andrew Lincoln plays Mark (I guess?) who is secretly in love with his best friend Chiwetel Ejiofor’s (Peter’s) wife, played by Keira Knightley. Her name is Juliet. 

During the scene where Keira Knightley shows up to see wedding footage and realize that it’s all close-up, lovingly shot stalker footage of her face, my boyfriend informed me that he’d once done something similar by splicing together nude scenes he wanted to masturbate to. (I think/hope he meant as a teenager?)

At that moment, I did kind of realize that if I was Keira Knightley, I would be like “This is the perfect wedding video, I am beautiful.”

He also accurately recognized the creepiness of the final “carol singers” cue card scene. “What’s wrong with their relationship that Keira Knightley is into this?” he wanted to know. 

Overall, he enjoyed the film, especially the part where you “see boobs every 15 minutes.” 

But he summed it all up thusly:

“Take away the soundtrack and four of these relationships would be a total nightmare.”

Correct, actually.
