WKylie Jenner puts large J-Lo type hoop earrings on her daughter Stormi, two, which are customized with the child's NAME inside

She just threw her daughter Stormi a stunningly lavish birthday party.

And Kylie Jenner showed once again that she does not skimp on the luxuries for her darling two-year-old daughter.

The 22-year-old makeup billionaire posted an Instagram album showing Stormi wearing a pair of customized hoop earrings. The child has had pierced ears since she was five months old.

Stormi's hoops had her name inside, as seen in a photo where she gazed at her 'best friend' - her reflection in a car door.

At the beginning of this month Kylie threw a massively extravagant second birthday party for Stormi, whom she shares with her ex Travis Scott.

As she did with the little girl's first birthday, Kylie set up a whole Stormi World whose entrance was a giant blow-up replica of the baby's head.

The lip kit tycoon splashed out on a spinning Dumbo ride and a mechanical claw over a tub full of inflatable Stormi heads.

Her party venue was so gigantic that guests were given maps to help them find their way around the various 'Worlds.'

Along with a dedicated Stormi World there were also areas dedicated to the animated children's movies Trolls and Frozen.

In a recent video for Harper's Bazaar Kylie discussed her diet and joked that 'if there was like a face of hangry it would be me.'

She added: 'And Stormi has it too because when that little girl's a little hungry, she turns into a different baby. So, if you wonder where she gets it from, it's me for sure.'

Kylie shared sweetly: 'I always wonder, "What does this little girl dream about?" We were sleeping and she woke up out of her sleep and was like "bagel." I was like: "Is she awake right now?" and I looked over. Dead asleep, just dreaming about bagels.'

Drew Carey's Ex-Fiancee Claimed Murder Suspect Threw Her Out of Car

Drew Carey has broken his silence on the murder of his ex-fiancee, Dr Amie Harwick, whose ex-boyfriend allegedly threw her from the third floor balcony of her California home over the weekend.  

Harwick, 38, was found unconscious on the ground at around 1.15am on Saturday after officers responded to a report of a 'woman screaming' in a Hollywood Hills neighborhood, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement.  

She had been thrown from her third floor apartment's balcony, according to police. 

In a statement that was emailed to US Weekly, Carey said he's 'overcome with grief'.

'Amie and I had a love that people are lucky to have once in a lifetime. She was a positive force in the world, a tireless and unapologetic champion for women, and passionate about her work as a therapist.'

The Price Is Right host said: 'I would like to thank you in advance for giving myself and everyone who loved Amie privacy while we try to work through this tragic situation.' 

His statement came after it was announced that the show has cancelled this week's tapings.  

According to TMZ, the show had plans to film on Tuesday and Wednesday, but audience members received an email notifying them of the cancellations on Monday. 

Carey and Harwick first made their relationship public in June 2017. They were engaged in January 2018.

Harwick, the author of The New Sex Bible for Women, and Carey split in November 2018 after dating for more than a year.

Authorities said they arrested Gareth Pursehouse, 41, at around 4.30pm on Saturday in Playa Del Rey on suspicion of murder.

Harwick had previously told friends she feared he would hurt her. She had filed a restraining order against him but it had expired two weeks ago.  

The doctor's roommate told police that after Pursehouse broke in, they ran out of the apartment to get help for her. 

By the time officers arrived at the property, she had been thrown from the balcony. 

Los Angeles Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Pursehouse has worked as a photographer as well as a software engineer and developer.

His most recent job was as lead architect at Internet Brands.

Hours after Harwick died and before his arrest, Pursehouse, who is active on Twitter, posted messages on the site.

'You can’t get fit without that new gym clothing,' he wrote at 9.07am on Saturday.

'But they won’t give you that gear until you’re fit. Soo … Tough t***ies bucko.' 

Hours before the alleged murder, Pursehouse tweeted about politics.

'I can’t figure out why gerrymandering isn’t a federal crime,' he wrote.

His Twitter page is full of tweets critical of President Donald Trump.

'Reminder... Once Trump is not president, the FBI can prosecute him for all the Mueller report findings…,' he wrote on Wednesday. 

Harwick is a well known sex and family therapist in the Hollywood area.

She received her degree in psychology from California Polytechnic University in Pomona, California. 

Harwick also earned her masters of arts in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University. 

In 2015, Harwick appeared in the popular online documentary titled Addicted to Sexting.

A year later, she made an appearance on the reality television show Braxton Family Values.

The show, which airs on WE tv, follows the lives of the Braxton sisters - Toni, Tamar, Traci, Towanda, and Trina - as well as their mother, Evelyn. 

Harwick also published articles in various online news and advice sites. According to her web site, she worked out of an office on Santa Monica Boulevard.

She offered weekly therapy sessions at $200 per session, according to her site.

Wow, The most incredible pregnancy: 7 babies were born the same and live healthy

The peaceful life of the Mike Coffey family changed dramatically in 1997. At that time, they already had a child. However, for the love of the children, they always planned to have a second child, but they never succeeded in conceiving. As a result, the wife planned to conceive a second child by artificial insemination.

The effect of this artificial insemination was really surprising. His wife, Bob Bi, was pregnant with 7 births this time. Due to the consideration of too much pregnancy risk and the fetal's own health problems, the doctor suggested that they be able to choose the best. But his wife Bao Bi unfollowed the doctor's advice.

To prevent accidental miscarriages, Bobby started to bed when she was five months pregnant. Moreover, in order to ensure adequate nutrition for seven children, Bobby needs to eat almost every 40 minutes.

Finally, the couple welcomed these 7 little babies. But these little guys only “lived” in their mother ’s stomach for just 7 months and couldn’t wait to come out. Fortunately, the children were born safely, but two children were sick. As the public and the government funded them, the sick children have been receiving treatment and has recovered well.

The couple not only received a large 500-square-foot house from the president, but also a cart, macaroni and cheese for the whole family for one year, diapers enough for children for two years. The hardship of raising a child is only known to couples, but they are always grateful. The healthy growth of these seven children is also credited to the help of good people.

After growing up, these seven children were all running for their studies. Later, they all entered high school and participated in various activities with great pleasure.

Ashley Graham posts adorable breastfeeding photo with son Isaac

Ashley Graham has shared another image of her newborn son Isaac, just hours after he made his debut on her Pretty Big Deal podcast.

In the sweet family snap, the 32-year-old plus-size model can be seen breastfeeding the baby boy, while proud dad Justin Ervin stroked his head.

Graham began her caption of the post, 'I remember holding Isaac for the first time and telling Justin, “Now we’re family forever”'. 

The television presenter continued, 'I have so many reasons to be grateful; all of the love and support from this amazing community, an incredible husband, and a beautiful baby who has opened my eyes to just how amazing this world really is.'

@mrjustinervin and Isaac, thank you for being my favorite @prettybigdealpod guests so far ??'

Ashley had earlier revealed she gave birth to her first child at home, in a birthing pool.

The model and husband Justin introduced their son to the world on Ashley's Pretty Big Deal podcast on Tuesday, revealing his name for the first time - Isaac Menelik Giovanni Ervin.

As the infant made his public debut, the new mother explained she felt inspired by her birth experience.

'I have to say, now that I gave birth and I did it naturally and I felt everything, I feel like there's nothing I can't do,' she said. 'There's nothing that could come my way where I say, 'Oh, that's too hard, I can't handle that.' I went through laboring for six hours naturally.' 

And the model said she chose to deliver her son at home in a birthing pool because her 'anxiety would've been through the roof' at a hospital.

And Ashley joked 'there's a really big granola girl' inside of her.

Her husband, 31, was moved by the experience. 

'To go straight from the pool to the bed with our son and just hold him, what a bond,' he said.

And it was Justin who named the child, saying he had loved the name Isaac since middle school.

'My sister Kia and I would have discussions about, "Oh, one day, when we have kids."

'I brainstormed my own name for my future son, and I knew it was gonna be Isaac.' 

Ashley said Isaac's middle name was inspired by the couple's trip to Ethiopia, where the learnt the country's first emperor was named Menelik I, meaning 'son of the wise'. 

As for Giovanni, it is the Italian version of John, which was the name of both Ashley and Justin's grandfathers as well as the founder of a church where Ervin’s parents were 'saved and baptized'.  

The couple announced the first details of Isaac's birth on Monday.

'At 6:00PM on 1/18/2020 we welcomed 7lbs 5oz of love into our world,' Ashley wrote on Instagram. 'Meeting out son has made our heart incredibly full.'

Ashley has been hosting her podcast since October 2018 and new episodes are released on Tuesdays. 

They first announced the birth of their son on January 20 with a message posted the the model's Instagram story.


At the time she wrote: 'At 6:00pm on Saturday our lives changed for the better,' the cover girl began her note, adding a red heart. 'Thank you for all your love and support during this incredible time.' 

Graham then shared, '1.18.2020' with a blue heart and a link to her spouse.  

One of her last social media posts from January 11 showed her in a bra top and leggings with her bare bump. She had 10M written on her tummy to celebrate having 10M Instagram followers.  She flashed her most infectious smile while making a heart shape with her hands.

Woman gets biggest surprise ever, as her boyfriend turns her birthday into their wedding day

He was assisted by all her mates and her mum, Carolyn, who took her to a bridal boutique and encouraged her to try on a frock, saying: "It might be the only time I get to see you in a wedding dress."

Sofie and Dave married in June last year on her 30th - despite previously claiming she wouldn’t marry past the age of 29 as it was so old. 

Sofie, 30, from Rhyl, north Wales, explained: “Dave really had planned the perfect day, down to the last detail. He had tracked down my old school pals to be my bridesmaids, he had ordered a white Bentley.

“He had even found my dream wedding dress – with a little help from my mum."

She continued: “I had absolutely no idea at all, though I did become a little suspicious because he was spending so much time out of the house.

“Apparently at one point I actually said to him: ‘Anyone would think you’re planning a wedding.’ but it was just a quip. I didn’t think that for a second.”

She even got into a row with him the night before the wedding - after he revealed he would be away on her birthday.

“Dave announced he was working and would be away overnight, and I was really cross because it was the night before my birthday,” she admitted.

“I realised he wouldn’t be there to see me open my presents and we had words before he left.”

Sofie, a self-confessed ‘control freak’, said despite making no decisions relating to her wedding she loved it.

“It was a fairytale,” she added.

The newlyweds met in their local pub in October 2011, getting together months later and having baby Evan in August 2012.

But they never married despite Sofie being keen.

“Our friends got married," she said. "I was a bridesmaid once. Dave was best man three times. It made me really long to get married. 

“We went to so many weddings and I’d watch the happy couple making their vows and I was so happy for them – but I really wished it could be me too. 

“The years went by and I just thought we’d never get around to it. I thought I’d be single for good.

“I always said I’d never get married after turning 30 too. I felt that was too old.”

Due to turn 30 in June last year, Sofie decided to throw a party. 

But her plans went on the back-burner during a busy spell at work. 

Soon after, Dave had a dream in which Sofie’s late grandfather, Terry, appeared to him and urged him to marry her.

The vision was enough to set the wheels in motion.

So, secretly Sofie’s mum, Carolyn, managed to lure her out on a shopping day.

Sofie continued: “Mum had had a busy time on the family farm so I thought I was doing her a favour, agreeing to a day of shopping and pampering.

“We passed a bridal shop. Mum said: ‘This might be the only time I ever see you in a wedding dress.’ 

“I went in and tried on a dress then thought nothing of it – because I knew there was no chance of me getting married.”

Also behind the scenes, cars, venues and flowers were being booked.

On the night before the wedding, Dave told Sofie he was working overnight – to give him a chance to make the final preparations.

But at 6.30am the following morning, Sofie answered the door in her pyjamas to find her mum and best pal on the door-step – complete with a wedding photographer.

Sofie said: “Mum handed me a large white box and a card which said: ‘On Your Wedding Day.’ 

“I saw the camera and I just burst into tears – it all slotted into place.

“Inside the card, I was told I was getting married at 1pm that same day.

“Everything was planned. In the box was the wedding dress I’d tried on months earlier, with mum. 

“They had even bought me a pair of bridal pyjamas. I was booked in at the beauty salon, where I work, to have my hair and make-up done.

“When I arrived at the salon, it was all decorated with flowers and drapes, and some of my old school friends were waiting there – I was amazed.

She continued: "Dave had tracked down everyone from around the UK who was special to me.

“I had five bridesmaids plus my best friend, Simone, as maid of honour. Our son, Evan, was page-boy.

“Dave really had thought of everything.

“I have no idea how Dave managed to keep it all a secret for five months – it was a fairy-tale day and a dream come true for me.

“It took seven long years to become Mrs Griffin – but it was well worth the wait.”

Dave said: “It might sound crazy but when I woke up after dreaming about her grandfather, I knew I had to marry Sofie.

I set up a secret WhatsApp group with all our friends and family and I spoke to the venue and booked a wedding instead of a birthday party. 

“I told Sofie I’d sort out her party; we only needed to order a few sandwiches and book a DJ, and so she agreed, because she was busy at work.

“I was spending more and more time out of the house, making plans, but I just kept fobbing Sofie off telling her I was working late or I was sorting out a hiccup with her birthday party.”

Earlier we revealed that a bridezilla called off her wedding because her ‘selfish’ fiance refuses to pay for dental work.

Another Bridezilla was slammed for getting annoyed at her maid of honour for "stealing her thunder" by getting engaged before her wedding.

Plus furious Bridezilla asks if she should uninvite her bridesmaid for dying her hair pink... and people are not impressed.

Art prodigy discovered by Oprah at just eight now sells her paintings for millions of dollars... and she's still only 20

She's been dubbed a child prodigy, a genius and 'the binary wunderkind'.

But Akiane Kramarik says everyone is blessed with a gift - she simply found hers at the very tender age of three.

Art has become a way of life for the 20-year-old, who grew up in a small town of Illinois in what she described as a 'dirty shack' with no television, no radio, no friends or relatives.

Coming from a background of financial hardship, it was a surreal experience for the young artist when she was first discovered by Oprah Winfrey and featured on her show at just eight years of age.

Since then, she's gone on to publish best-selling books and paintings which are valued at millions of dollars.

Having lived and explored more than 30 countries with her family, they've finally decided to settle down in Australia with hopes of opening up a gallery and and an international arts academy for aspiring artists.

For more than 10 years, Ms Kramarik has woken up at 3am every morning to gather her thoughts and to begin creating another one of her masterpieces.

It's this kind of discipline that's driven the US artist from virtually nothing to renowned success.

But none of her values and goals have changed as she's remains humble and grateful for the support she's had over the years, especially from her parents and four brothers.

'I grew up in a very nurturing family,' she told Daily Mail Australia.

'We were financially extremely poor. We literally lived day by day and had no TV or radio.

'I remember my mother actually going from door to door, introducing herself and wanting to make friends with people but no one was welcoming of us.

'So we led our lives in nature and spent a lot of time together as a family. That's how we picked things up and learned about life.'

Then began her vivid dreams.

'I was so young but started having these visions and impressions of the world,' Ms Kramarik said.

'I was just so surprised at the impeccable images I had in my head that I just had to express them in some sort of physical matter.

'So I began sketching on anything and I remember these drawings scattered around the dirty shack we used to live in.'

When these drawings were noticed by Ms Kramarik's parents, they saved up to buy her a sketch book and pencil to help her explore her new-found talent.

'That's when I started to take my art very seriously,' Ms Kramarik said.

'Then as I turned seven, I gradually moved onto pastels and started painting on large canvases that were much bigger than me.'

It was from this moment that she began her early morning 3am rituals.

'It's the most peaceful time for me as I can slowly get lost in the world I'm painting,' she said.

'It really is the best thing I do every day and I don't plan on changing my routine any time soon.' 


At the age of eight, she completed her first five-foot long oil painting and made her first TV appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

'I was so young then plus I didn't grow up with TV, so had no idea about what kind of person Oprah was,' Ms Kramarik said.

'It was only after I came off her show that I understood how influential she was as it really opened up a path for me.'

Since then, she's also met the likes of TV host Craig Ferguson and former anchor of Good Morning America Diane Sawyer.

But Ms Kramarik - who many in the art community refer as 'the binary wunderkind' - deeply struggled with the labels she's been given as a child.

'Before I went on Oprah there was a lot of judgement from people around me because they didn't believe the paintings and drawings were by me,' she said.

'People wanted to burn all my works when we tried to display them in public. That made me doubt myself and my talents.

'But then once I was discovered and people started labelling me - it was also hard to live up to those expectations.'

Despite all this, the gifted artist has gone on to publish two best-selling books of poems as well as paintings which are worth $10,000 up to $3 million.


Looking back, Ms Kramarik believes all the emotional and financial hardship she's endured over the years have been worth every little bit.


And this year, she's keen to start working on some of her lifelong goals here in Australia.

'Me and my family moved to the Gold Coast (southeastern Queensland) about six months ago and it's just perfect,' Ms Kramarik said.

'This is our second home and we've completely fallen in love with its charm.' 

The 20-year-old hopes to open up an art gallery and an international arts academy in Australia for aspiring artists.

'It's still in the planning process but I'm really excited about giving back to the community, inspiring people and helping others find their talents,' she said.

'I was lucky enough to meet such great people during my journey so I hope I can somehow do the same for others.'

Liam Hemsworth enjoys a romantic night out with girlfriend Gabriella Brooks in West Hollywood

They enjoyed a seaside breakfast in Malibu on Saturday morning.

And Liam Hemsworth was ready to paint the town red on a romantic night out with girlfriend Gabriella Brooks in Los Angeles.

The 30-year-old actor looked handsome in a grey suede jacket while his lady love flaunted her supermodel legs in a white miniskirt as they left the San Vicente Bungalows in West Hollywood. 

Hemsworth stayed with his monochrome theme wearing a marching grey shirt underneath his coat. 

The Hunger Games star styled his chocolate brown hair and showed off a bit of scruff on his face.

Gabriella, 23, rocked a chic ensemble complete with a tan leather duster worn on top of a white tee and matching denim skirt. 

She added a pop of color with a pair of chunky red booties and carried a lime green purse over her shoulder.

The Australian model wore her caramel colored hair in naturally wavy and let her bold brows command attention on her impeccable complexion. 

Liam and Gabriella made things official earlier this month when they were spotted kissing on the beach in Australia. 

It's the second relationship for Liam since he split from his wife, Miley Cyrus, in August last year, after less than eight months of marriage.

In October, he stepped out with Australian actress Maddison Brown, 23, in New York, but the pair just weren't a match.

'Liam feels comfortable with Gabriella,' a source told US Weekly. 'His family approves of her and really likes her, which is very important to him.'

Meet Valerie Levitin, the slimmest lady in the world. Her life story will make you cry

This is the desperately sad story of the thinnest woman in the world who weighs just four stone after years of extreme dieting.

But rather than feel sorry for herself, Valeria Levitin says her emaciated figure should be a severe wake-up call for girls wanting matchstick-thin figures.

At 5ft 8in, she should weigh between 9st and 12st, according to NHS advice. Instead, she is a tiny 4st 3lbs, less than half of what her lightest healthy weight should be. 

What is most worrying is that Valeria, originally from Russia but who now lives in Monaco, says she gets fan mail from girls desperate to copy her skeletal look.

The 39-year-old told The Sun: ‘I have received emails from young girls who want me to teach them how to be like me.

‘All the letters I’ve had are from women, mainly in their twenties, who see me as some kind of inspiration.’

As a result, she has taken the brave step to speak out about her condition and campaign against anorexia – and says she refuses to teach young girls how to die.

Valeria, who developed her eating disorder as a teenager, has chosen to speak out about how the illness has ruined her life.

She says she wants to share her story to prevent other people falling victim to the same fate, saying anorexia has made her ‘lonely, unattractive and repulsive for the people around me’.

She believes the roots of her condition lie with her mother, who was terrified Valeria would grow up obese like her relatives. Even as a young child, her diet was curtailed.

Valeria was weighed often to ensure she hadn’t gained any weight, such was her mother’s drive for perfection.

At 16, and weighing 10st, Valeria moved to Chicago with her parents. Desperate to fit in at a new school, she thought that if she lost weight, she would be accepted and liked.

As a result, she restricted her diet even further, cutting out sugar or carbohydrates. 

The irony today is that, having cut out certain foods for so long, her body is intolerant to them and could not process them even if she wanted to.

When a classmate made a cruel comment about Valeria’s figure, she became even more determined to lose weight. 

She said: 'We were playing football and during the game a man said, "I know how we can win. We need to put Valeria’s big ar*e in the goal”. It shattered my whole world.'

By the time she was 23, Valeria’s dress size had plummeted from a healthy size 12 to a tiny size six.

Deciding to become a model made the situation even worse, as she was told she was still too fat to succeed. As her weight continued to plummet, by the age of 24 and weighing just six stone, she was banned from dancing over concerns she would injure herself.

For the next ten years she saw more than 30 health specialists, though once dipped to a dangerously low 3st 10lbs. Today, even if she wanted to eat certain foods, she would be unable to.

Many foods have to be avoided because they don’t agree with her body any more. It has been so long since she ate bread that she can no longer remember what it tastes like. 

Her illness has also made her life a very lonely one. Single for a decade, she says relationships are difficult as she is unable to do the normal things that couples do, as going to restaurants.

Now, she believes she cannot be cured simply by going to a doctor, having never gained weight after seeing a specialist.

Rather, she says the problem is more about a 'lack of harmony between body and soul'.

Today Valeria takes supplements to counter the risk of bruising and avoids situations where she could fall. 

And she believes the solution could lie in moving back to Moscow - where she feels more at ease with herself - and trying to fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming a mother via a surrogate.

For the incentive of wanting a child could be a trigger to get healthy again, she says.  It is something she feels she can do if she can get herself healthy.

She said: 'I would love to have a family because I feel I have so much to give. But obviously it wouldn’t be right to have a baby when I am ill. It wouldn’t be fair on the child. 

'I want to stand up to anorexia. I’ve never given up on anything in my life and I’m not about to give up now.'

Kate Middleton wears Catherine Walker coat on Holocaust Day in London

The Duchess of Cambridge donned a grey coat as she joined Prince William to pay her respects on Holocaust Memorial Day in London today. 

Kate, 38, looked elegant in the bespoke Catherine Walker creation as she arrived for a service to mark the 75th anniversary of Auschwitz-Birkenau liberation at Westminster's Central Hall.

Despite the solemnity of the occasion, the Duchess managed to flash a smile at waiting well-wishers before making her way inside.

Kate ensured attention remained on the service by keeping her styling simple, pairing the coat dress with tights, simple black court shoes and a black clutch bag from Jimmy Choo. She added a delicate pair of Cassandra Goad earrings.

The Duchess previously wore the coat, believed to be bespoke, on an outing with the Queen to King's College London in March last year. 

Ahead of the service, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met Olivia Marks-Woldman, chief executive of the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, as well as survivor and trust honorary president Sir Ben Helfgott.

It is one of a series of events taking place across Europe to mark the solemn anniversary, including at the death camp itself, where the Duchess of Cornwall is in attendance.

Kate's appearance comes after she released a set of moving photographs of Holocaust survivors inspired by the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer.

Four survivors, alongside their children and grandchildren, featured in the moving new photographs.

Kate was among those behind the lens for the project and described the survivors in her portraits as 'two of the most life-affirming people that I have had the privilege to meet'.

Each of the portraits depicts the special connection between a survivor and younger generations of their family, who will carry the legacy of their grandparents.

One of Kate's two portraits was of 84-year-old Steven Frank, originally from Amsterdam, who survived multiple concentration camps as a child.

He was pictured alongside his granddaughters Maggie and Trixie Fleet, aged 15 and 13.

Kate's other portrait is of 82-year-old Yvonne Bernstein, originally from Germany, who was a hidden child in France throughout most of the Holocaust.

Her father was in Amsterdam on business when Kristallnacht took place in 1938 and was advised to go into hiding, before making it to the UK.

She is pictured with her granddaughter Chloe Wright, aged 11.

In a photograph by Frederic Aranda, Joan Salter, 79, who fled the Nazis as a young child, appears with her husband Martin and her daughter Shelley.

John Hajdu, 82, who survived the Budapest Ghetto, is in a portrait with his four-year-old grandson Zac photographed by Jillian Edelstein.

The project aims to inspire people across the UK to consider their own responsibility to remember and share the stories of those who endured persecution at the hands of the Nazis.

True love is inevitable! check out this huge man and his slim girlfriend in pictures

Like my friends, I had teenage crushes on boys I fancied growing up. But unlike them, I never got attention back. I tried to tell myself it wasn’t because of my weight but the older I got, the more obvious it was that I was larger than the other girls and had my fair share of bullying because of it. People would come up and oink in my face; it was exhausting and humiliating. The constant judgement made me feel like my body was no longer mine. I became increasingly ashamed of it and covered up whenever I had the chance. Then at 17, I discovered alcohol. With lots of vodka in my system and a short dress on, I started to get the attention from men I had missed out on and it gave me a huge amount of confidence.

I became promiscuous, craving the feeling of being special. If men wanted sex in exchange for noticing me I gave it to them. I knew I wasn’t the type of girl people would call ‘gorgeous’, and casual sex was all I felt I was worth – just that split second of feeling wanted. After sex, men inevitably showed no interest in wanting a relationship. Most would shy away from giving me their number the next day, and some even woke up with a look of physical disgust on their face, probably without remembering much about the night before. Even though deep down I felt used and unwanted, I still fell for pretty much all of them. I told myself that I wasn’t fussed about love, that I didn’t want a relationship and was happy living life for me, but really I wanted the happiness I could see in couples around me.

I wanted someone to come home to after a rubbish day, to watch TV with, who would cuddle me and tell me everything would be OK. Fed up with all my friends disappearing into blissful domesticity, I decided to try online dating – another inevitability. I was honest when the option was there, saying that I was curvy or larger and always posted full length photos. I was never scared about making the first move either, and I chatted to a lot of people – but conversations would fizzle out. Dates were few and far between but when they did happen, they followed a similar pattern: great chat, lots of laughter and when I messaged a day or so later, I would never hear from the guy again. It was ghosting before the term was really coined. One brave man did reply and point blank said that while he’d had a good time, I was larger than he thought and for that reason he wasn’t interested in seeing me again. I’d always feared it deep down, but he confirmed it: my weight was the reason no one wanted me. To hear it from someone I’d had a nice time with was especially horrible. All of the insecurities I had about my body that I’d pushed down with alcohol and sex came tumbling out again.

Honesty is so important when you’re deciding who to meet in real life but being open and up-front can also expose you to mean people who are put off before they even get to know you. The dilemma is awful. I felt like I was constantly having to out myself as ‘the plus-size one’, defining myself by my size and nothing else. At points I hated myself – it was like my body was failing me, stopping me from being happy. I wanted to close myself off from love and sack it all in. There is no one, true beauty ideal. The average dress size in the UK for a woman is a 16, so most of the slender bodies sold to us as desirable through porn and social media are, in fact, the minority. Yet, it’s drilled into men’s minds that anyone my size is just ‘too big’. I knew I would make a great girlfriend; I’ve always been a thoughtful person who put others before herself, but I was constantly overlooked. After some time away from dating I decided to try out one last dating site after a few friends reported some success. Scrolling through, I came across Luke. He looked really interesting as we had a lot of similar passions like movies, comic books and pop culture. So I crafted an initial message that touched on his love of geek culture. I hoped he’d reply but tried not to get my hopes up – most of my messages to guys online had been ignored in the past. Luke replied the same day and I was elated. He said that he appreciated how I’d taken the time to read his (very extensive) profile and that we seemed to have lots in common.

We spent weeks chatting non-stop, something that hadn’t happened to me for a long time, and eventually the conversation turned to meeting up. Luke had seen all the photos I’d put up (it later transpired that he’d looked me up on social media, too), so I knew nothing about my appearance would come as a surprise to him. Still, I was incredibly nervous and put off our first date by a week. Although it felt different with Luke, previous experience of being judged made me hold back. When we did meet up, he drove to my hometown and the moment I saw Luke outside the restaurant I was truly at ease. I didn’t feel like I was acting as someone else or pretending to be who a man wanted me to be – and, for once, I didn’t feel conscious about my size. Luke wanted to arrange a second date straight away. On one hand, trying to second guess what was going to go wrong made me feel incredibly vulnerable. On the other, his enthusiasm gave me that little spark of confidence to believe that I was good enough for someone to want to see again.

We have now been together for over three years. Luke’s my own personal cheerleader and one of the first people to call me ‘gorgeous’ and ‘sexy’. He knows I want to lose weight, but he’s never pressured me or made me feel bad when my rubbish attempts have failed. He has never cared about my size – he has always been interested in all of me. There’s a lot to be said for someone who simply loves you no matter what. True love comes from being with someone who puts in the effort to really get to know you, not just what’s on the surface. You know you’re with the right person when they make you feel good about yourself even when you hate what’s staring back at you in the mirror. And in turn, confidence and happiness are far more attractive than a stereotypically beautiful body. I was lucky to find love but in a world that can’t see past looks, it’s easy to be knocked back and even admit all-out defeat. There are so many incredible, gorgeous, loving people out there just looking for someone to share their lives with, everyone will miss out if dating doesn’t become more than skin deep.

Billy Porter takes flight in green jumpsuit gown and butterfly bodyart at the Critics' Choice Awards

He's become a critical darling thanks to his starring role on FX's Pose and popular Broadway work.

Billy Porter didn't disappoint Sunday at the 25th annual Critics' Choice Awards in Santa Monica when he hit the red carpet in a striking mini green Hogan McLaughlin gown-like jumpsuit.

The 50-year-old actor and singer teamed the jumpsuit with a swarm of butterflies, painted over his shoulders and arms.

The bodyart had particular meaning for the actor, according to makeup artist Anna Bernabe, who spent an hour at her work. 

'Billy’s intention [was] to embrace freedom,' she told Vogue. 'Butterflies represent a personal metamorphosis. 

'The multiple butterflies [all over his body symbolize] the numerous transformations and rebirths one goes through during a lifetime.'

Porter was nominated at the ceremony for Best Actor in a Drama Series.

Billy stars in the critically acclaimed Pose as Pray Tell, the MC of New York's ball culture in the 1980s and early 1990s.

The community provided an outlet for drag queens and transgender people of color as the AIDS crisis began to decimate them.

The Best Actor in a Drama Series award ultimately went to Jeremy Strong from Succession. The HBO series also took home the Best Drama Series award, beating out Pose.

Meanwhile Billy's co-star MJ Rodriguez was nominated in the Best Actress in a Drama Series category, but the award went home with Watchmen's Regina King.

Despite not winning, Billy still looked like he had a great time at the award show.

He and Little Women scene-stealer Florence Pugh both gushed over their eye-catching looks on the red carpet.

Billy also stopped to pose with writer and activist Janet Mock, who seemed to be on the same wavelength when it came to the evening's fashion choices.

She complemented him in a teal dress, which she spiced up with long sparkling gloves.

Kate wears necklace engraved for George, Charlotte and Louis on childhood mission

Kate wore a necklace engraved with the initials of her three children as she met other parents across the UK to launch her mission to improve childhood.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore the personalised gold Daniella Draper necklace – worth £1, 070 – as she travelled to Cardiff and Surrey as part of her ‘Five Big Questions’ tour.

With the letters G, C and L for Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, one, Kate unveiled her major new survey aimed at understanding the importance of early childhood development.

The mother-of-three started her day yesterday with parents and children in Cardiff at a children’s centre before ending it meeting women at HMP Send in Surrey to understand the life-long impact childhood trauma can have.

On Tuesday, she was in Birmingham to promote the survey, asking parents and carers for their opinion on what influences development and what period of childhood is most important for children’s happiness.

The online poll, conducted by Ipsos Mori on behalf of the Royal Foundation, is thought to be the biggest survey of its kind.

It’s not the first time the duchess has paid personal tribute to her family through jewellery.

In February 2014, she was photographed wearing a new necklace that carried a disc engraved with Prince George’s full name – George Alexander Louis – and a heart-shaped charm inscribed with the letter ‘W’ for her husband Prince William.

It was understood to be a gift from her sister Pippa.

Kate’s sister-in-law Meghan is also known for making a statement through jewellery.

The Duchess of Sussex wore an initial A necklace to Wimbledon in July 2019 two months after baby Archie was born.

Then in September, Meghan also kept husband Prince Harry and baby Archie close-by with a gold necklace adorned with the letters H and A while watching her friend Serena Williams compete against Bianca Andreescu in the US Open.

Girl’s prom date makes her dream dress from scratch when she couldn’t afford it

When student Adrianna Rust from Indiana, US, fell in love with a beautiful ball gown for her prom, the price tag deterred her from the purchase. But her best friend Parker Smith, who was also her prom date, decided to step in and make her dreams come true. Rather than just buying the gown, Parker made a version of the dress from scratch for Adrianna to wear to their high school prom. What started as a joke resulted in Adrianna wearing a gorgeous sky blue ball gown on the big day.

Adrianna, 18, told ‘I fell in love with a dress but it was more than I wanted to spend. I jokingly told him he should just make it for me. ‘He’s always up for a challenge and sat down with me to design it.

Parker originally hoped to keep the dress a surprise to present to Adrianna on the day of the prom, but quickly realised it was best to consult with his friend to figure out all the details. He ended up keeping her updated throughout the entire creative process.

‘I absolutely loved the dress,’ said Adrianna. ‘I was with him throughout the whole process so it wasn’t a surprise.’ As well as the dress itself, the project delivered another wonderful thing: the friends grew closer.

Adrianna says: ‘It grew our friendship more than ever throughout those couple of months. He brought it over the morning of prom and I cried.

‘I was so proud of him and so blessed to be able to call him my best friend. He’s so talented!’ Parker is also delighted with how the dress came out. He adds: ‘I’m grateful for the experience, not only because it opened up a new world of possibilities in design, but most importantly because I got to do something special for my best friend.’

Gigi Hadid couldn't look happier as she walks arm in arm with Zayn Malik after reuniting with on/off boyfriend on his birthday

Gigi Hadid has officially rekindled her romance with ex-boyfriend Zayn Malik after breaking up a year ago.

The couple sparked rumors that they were back together when they were spotted out together Saturday, when he joined the celebrations for her mother's birthday.

And Gigi couldn't have looked happier as the two walked arm in arm while celebrating Zayn's 27th birthday the next evening in New York City.

Grinning, she held tight to her boyfriend, who she has dated on and off since 2015.

Looking every inch the model, Hadid sported an avant-garde look in black and carried a slouchy iridescent sparkling handbag as she joined Zayn for dinner at Eleven Madison Park in the Flatiron District. 

Following his love as they walked, birthday boy Zayn posted a proprietary hand on her behind. 

The former One Direction star cut a cool look in a retro crimson shirt with vertical cream stripes, open over a black t-shirt. 

The couple were spotted out the night before for Gigi's mom Yolanda's 56th birthday, sparking rumors they'd got back together.

A source told E! News: 'Gigi and Zayn got back together right before the holidays in December. Zayn has been reaching out to Gigi for the last month and she is giving him another chance.'

They added: 'She has always loved him and the break between the two was needed. Zayn has been working on his past music and focusing on his health and is in a really good place currently.'

Gigi and Zayn began dating in late 2015 before splitting up in March 2018 and getting back together in June, just to announce another split in January 2019.

She appeared in his sensual video for his debut solo single Pillowtalk, which dropped in January of 2016.

They later appeared together on the cover of Vogue for the August 2017 issue, which sparked controversy for incorrectly referring to them as gender fluid. 

Since their split, Gigi was briefly romantically linked to The Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron over the summer.

Cosmetic surgery leaves teen brain damaged, mother 'just wants daughter back'

THORNTON, CO -- A Thornton family has filed a lawsuit against a prominent doctor and a nurse anesthetist saying after their daughter suffered two cardiac arrests and brain damage during cosmetic surgery, the medical professionals overseeing her care did not call 911 for more than five hours.

“We just really want to know what happened, what was the truth, what happened back there”, said Lynn Fam, during an interview with CBS4.

Last summer, her daughter, Emmalyn Nguyen, 18, decided to have breast augmentation performed by Greenwood Village Doctor Geoffrey Kim.


“I was fine with it,” said Fam.” We didn’t think anything like that was going to happen to our daughter. I was a teenage girl once before.”

She said her daughter, a graduate of Mountain Range high school, was healthy and had saved up for the $6,000 procedure, which many of her friends and family had undergone before.

“To us it felt safe,” said Fam.

But in the family’s lawsuit, filed Wednesday by attorney David Woodruff, the lawyer contends Nguyen was left unattended and unobserved for 15 minutes after being given anesthesia Aug. 1 at 2 p.m. by certified nurse anesthetist Rex Meeker.

The procedure took place at Kim’s Greenwood Village office, Colorado Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery. The lawsuit alleges negligence and contends that during that initial timeframe, Nguyen went into cardiac arrest and was revived when Dr. Kim performed CPR.

But Woodruff says medical records show Nguyen went into cardiac arrest a second time, just a few minutes later, and was again stabilized, but 911 was still not called, even though she was “neurologically unresponsive.”

Lynn Fam says what was supposed to be a two hour procedure stretched late into the afternoon and she kept asking what was happening.

“I just had kind of a weird feeling,” said Fam.

She said at various points, staff members misled her about what had occurred. She told CBS4 that at one point Dr. Kim told her ”Everything went fine, the only thing is we didn’t proceed with the procedure because her heart rate dropped but she is fine. He said everything is fine, Emmalyn is fine, everything is good. She’s young, she’s healthy, she’ll be okay, it’s just taking her long to wake up.”

Fam says at one point an office staff member even approached her and gave her a reminder card setting up a follow up appointment.

Kim did not respond to multiple messages left by CBS4, but his attorney, Kari Hershey, told CBS4 “As a physician, Dr. Kim is not at liberty to comment about any specific patient

State medical records show Kim has had no previous disciplinary actions against his medical license.

Finally, at 7:35 p.m., the lawsuit says Meeker, the nurse anesthetist, called 911. An ambulance was sent and Nguyen was transported to Littleton Adventist Hospital.

After 22 days, she was transported to a rehabilitation hospital where she receives around the clock medical care. Nguyen is now in what is known as a “minimally conscious state” — unable to speak, walk, eat or take care of herself. Her family says she has suffered severe brain damage and will likely remain in this condition for the rest of her life.

Lynn Fam said a lawsuit won’t bring her daughter back but might provide some answers as to what happened.

“That’s a really long time,” Fam said, referring to the gap between the cardiac arrest and the 911 call.

“To me it’s a miracle she pulled through all that and she is still fighting this. I don’t know how they can sleep at night knowing they did this to her. They ruined Emmalyn’s life, not just hers but all of ours.”

Sonny Nguyen, the teen’s father, told CBS4 “I’m a little speechless about how they can wait that long. I’m a little shocked they wait that long for help.”

Woodruff, their attorney, calls the delay in summoning help “unbelievable. When an entire team of healthcare professionals realizes shes in cardiac arrest, they perform CPR then they don’t call 911 for five and a half hours. That’s unconscionable.”

He said there is no such thing as a risk-free procedure.

“If you’re in the wrong hands and health care providers are not paying attention or not doing their job, it carries a risk of significant permanent injury or death and I think everyone should be aware of that.”

Meeker, the nurse anesthetist, was involved in a similar situation in 2007.

He served as the nurse anesthetist for Paula Harty, of Silverthorne, who was also undergoing a breast augmentation.

According to a 2009 lawsuit filed in that case, Harty suffered low blood pressure and a slow heart rate during the procedure which were unrecognized and led to cardiac arrest and severe brain damage.

One month after the procedure, Paula Harty died. Her husband filed suit and named Meeker in the legal action saying he had been negligent, failing to properly administer anesthesia and failing to properly monitor Harty’s condition during the procedure. The suit was eventually settled out of court and the terms are confidential

But Paula Harty’s daughter, Brandy Swenson, told CBS4 she did not think Meeker should have been allowed to continue practicing after her mother’s death.

“They killed my mom, 100%,” said Swenson. “She would be alive today if they had done their jobs right.”

State records show that case did not lead to any state disciplinary action against Meeker. Meeker did not respond to multiple calls and text messages from CBS4 seeking comment. A call and email to an attorney believed to be representing Meeker were also not returned.

Now, every day, Lynn Fam visits her daughter’s bedside, brushing her daughter’s hair, adjusting her pillow and maintaining hope.

“It’s really hard, it’s not easy,” said Fam. But we all try to stay strong in case she can hear us.”

The mother leans in, just inches from her daughter’s face.

“We’re all right here for you. We love you so much. Stay strong,” whispers Fam. “We just want you to go home, we’re all waiting for you, ok?”

Woman ‘pretended to be pregnant, then killed close pal who vanished with newborn a week ago’

A woman pretended to be pregnant, then murdered a close friend who vanished with her newborn baby a week ago, police believe. Magen Fieramusca, 33, is set to be charged with the murder of Heidi Broussard, 33, whose remains are believed to have been found in the trunk of a car in Houston, Texas, on Friday morning. Broussard’s one month-old daughter Margot Carey was found safe nearby and is unharmed. The Austin-American Statesman reported that Fieramusca now suspected of killing Heidi ‘pretended to have been pregnant simultaneously as Broussard.’ Fieramusca is due in court Friday morning. Neighbors told KHOU journalist Michelle Choi that the woman and her partner had been ‘trying for a baby.’

Choi added: ‘They’ve spoken with the man, described as nice a couple of times, but they’ve never spoke w/ his g/f – say they thought she was just shy.’ Heidi’s mom Tammy Broussard told CBS Austin that the body belonged to Heidi, and that the woman being questioned was a close friend of her late daughter’s. She added that Margot is now in social services custody. That suspect, who is believed to have killed Broussard and abducted Margot, has so far been charged with kidnapping and tampering, with her bond set at $600,000. Police say her car was in Broussard’s home city of Austin, around 170 miles from Houston, at the time the young mother disappeared.

Law enforcement sources have refused to comment further on whether Broussard knew her alleged killer, or if the murder was set-up in a bid to snatch her daughter. Broussard, from Austin, is believed to have been found dead eight days after she and Margot dropped another child off at an Austin’s Cowan Elementary School Investigators believe mother and daughter returned to their apartment complex after, then vanished. Broussard’s fiance Shane Carey issued a tearful appeal for her return. He said that all of Broussard and Margot’s belongings were still in the apartment, and that there had been no signs of a struggle.

Police immediately suspected foul play because Broussard had vanished with Margot, but left her other, older child behind. Officials said Friday they do not believe Carey to have been involved in his partner’s disappearance. He and Broussard were together for 10 years prior to her vanishing last week.
