Miley Cyrus: Why She’s ‘Not Really Paying Attention’ To Liam Hemsworth’s New Romance – Hollywood Life

October 17th, 2019

Liam Hemsworth may have a new lady in his life, but a source close to Miley Cyrus spilled all the deets about why she’s not even paying attention to his brand new romance.

It’s been hard to keep up with the Miley-Liam relationship drama, but we are HERE for it! After Liam Hemsworth, 29, was spotted holding hands with Dynasty actress Maddison Brown, 22, on Oct. the world seemingly waited on pins and needles for Miley’s reaction. However, it looks like the “Mother’s Daughter” singer isn’t putting any of her energy towards thinking about her ex’s hot new romance. “Right now, Miley is so happy being with Cody that she’s not really paying attention to Liam and Maddison because she knows that is the past,” a source EXCLUSIVELY spilled to HollywoodLife

“Liam was more conservative than Cody and she’s realizing now that she’s older she’s changed. She’s really happy with Cody. It’s safe and it’s easy for her. She’s known Cody for years and her family has known him since he and Miley were kids. She and Cody have a history. This is a completely different thing for her than Liam and they’re just having a lot of fun together which Miley needs right now,” the source added. “It’s nothing super serious and more casual and seeing where it goes, but they do really like each other and have great chemistry together.”

After splitting from Liam earlier this summer, then moving onto a hot-and-heavy six-week fling with The Hills: New Beginnings star Kaitlynn Carter, Miley stunned fans across the globe when she and current beau Cody Simpson, 22, were spotted making out over smoothie bowls on Oct. 3. The pair have not been shy about their budding romance, as both Cody and Miley have plastered each other all over their respective Instagram accounts. Cody also gushed about Miley at the Tiffany Men’s launch event in Los Angeles on Oct. 11, and the pair even had breakfast with Miley’s mom Tish the next morning.

Kawhi Leonard welcomed back to Canada in Vancouver pre-season game –

October 17th, 2019

VANCOUVER — Basketball fans enthusiastically welcomed former Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard back to Canada on Thursday night.

Cheers echoed from the crowd at Rogers Arena in Vancouver as Leonard led his new team, the L.A. Clippers, on to the court for warm ups before an NBA pre-season game with the Dallas Mavericks.

Fans got loud once again as the 28-year-old’s name was announced in the starting lineup.

Leonard led the Raptors to their first NBA championship last season, averaging 30.5 points per game in a playoff run which generated huge television ratings across Canada.

He then opted to join his hometown Clippers in free agency, reportedly agreeing to a three-year, US$103-million contract.

The negotiation period attracted plenty of attention. One television network even used a helicopter to film a vehicle that reportedly had Leonard inside after he flew to Toronto to meet with the Raptors.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers knew Canadian fans were looking forward to seeing Leonard live on Thursday.

“They should be excited,” the coach said. “He did something very special for this country. So that’ll be a lot of fun for him, for sure.”

Leonard is returning to the city where he took part in his first and only training camp with the Raptors last year.

1,500 eligible voters in Boundary area didn’t get voter information cards –

October 17th, 2019

Elections Canada says roughly 950 electors in Greenwood and 600 in Midway, B.C. did not receive their voter information cards in the mail for this federal election.

“There was a problem in the printing and when it went to be reprinted we were promised that those cards would be sent out to the people at the beginning of this week. But we’re hearing from residents that no one’s received them yet,” said Andrea Marantz, a spokesperson for Elections Canada.

Residents in the Boundary region of Interior B.C. who didn’t receive their voter information cards are still eligible to vote but will need to research which polling station they’re supposed to go to.

Elections Canada is asking anyone who didn’t receive a voter information card to call the local Elections Canada office at 1-866-546-7622 to find out where they need to go to vote on Oct. 21. 

While some people may have voted at the same polling station in past federal elections, there is always a chance their assigned station has changed, Marantz told Radio West host Sarah Penton.

“It’s very good to phone and be certain because there are boundaries to the different polling areas,” she said.

“What we really don’t want to happen is for people to go to a place assuming this is where they’re going to vote and then have to go somewhere else.”

She added they are “concerned” that people haven’t received their cards, but she hopes those who didn’t will call in and visit the Elections Canada website to learn what they need to do.

“We’re always trying to make sure that it doesn’t happen, but things like this do occasionally happen, and there are some areas [where] it’s more difficult,” said Marantz.

“A lot of rural areas across the country, we do have difficulty with the post office boxes not correlating to the location where the person lives and that can sometimes mix up the system.”

What’s needed to vote

You do not need a voter information card to cast a ballot. 

You can use a government issued piece of ID, such as a driver’s licence, with your name, photo and current address on it or two pieces of other ID that both have your name on it and one that has your current address, or you can get someone to vouch for you, as long as they are able to prove their own identity and address.

If you are not registered to vote or if you didn’t receive your voter information card, you can register at the polls.

Kylie Jenner Cashes In On “Rise and Shine” With Merch – E! NEWS

October 17th, 2019

Kylie Jenneris seeing money signs.

When Kylie released her tour of the Kylie Cosmetics office, nobody could’ve predicted that it would’ve made headlines for showcasing her musical talents. But here we are, a week later and nobody, and we mean nobody, on social media can escape it. Her somewhat catchy tune has been pasted all over social media and turned into remixes, alarm tones and memes, with even Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande poking fun at the moment.

And now the 22-year-old is getting the last laugh, because she’s created her very own merch around it. On her KylieShop website, hoodies with “Rise and Shine” emblazoned across the sleeves, in addition to a photo of her face inside a sun à la The Teletubbies, are for sale for $65. The sweatshirts that are perfect for sweater weather are available in black and white and are sure to sell out. 

Although it looks like Stormi won’t be wearing the hoodie anytime soon. The tot prefers her father, Travis Scott‘s, music over her moms. On Instagram, Kylie shared a video of Stormi dancing to the “Riiise and Shiiine” remix, but quickly asked for her dads music instead. 

Kylie isn’t taking it heart though. In fact, Kylie adores how close Stormi is to her dad. “She is obsessed with her dad, though,” Jenner told fans during a Snapchat Q&A last year. “They have this crazy connection and she’s definitely a daddy’s girl. It’s cute to watch. When dad’s around, [it’s like] I’m not even there.”

In Stormi’s defense she is a die-hard fan of La Flame. On Kylie and Travis’ Instagram Story they are always showing off how Stormi dances it out to her dads music.

Fat found in overweight people’s lungs – BBC News

October 17th, 2019

Fatty tissue has been found in the lungs of overweight and obese people for the first time.

Australian researchers analysed lung samples from 52 people and found the amount of fat increased in line with body mass index.

They said their findings could explain why being overweight or obese increased asthma risk.

Lung experts said it would be interesting to see if the effect could be reversed by weight loss.

Increased risk

In the study, published in the European Respiratory Journal, scientists looked at post-mortem samples of lung donated for research.

Fifteen had had no reported asthma, 21 had asthma but died of other causes and 16 died of the condition.

The scientists used dyes to carry out detailed analyses of almost 1,400 airways from the lung samples under the microscope.

The researchers found adipose (fatty) tissue in the walls of airways, with more present in people with a higher body mass index,

And they say the increase in fat appears to alter the normal structure of the airways and cause inflammation in the lungs – which could explain the increased risk of asthma in overweight or obese people.

Direct pressure

Dr Peter Noble, an associate professor at the University of Western Australia, in Perth who worked on the study, said: “Being overweight or obese has already been linked to having asthma or having worse asthma symptoms.

“Researchers have suggested that the link might be explained by the direct pressure of excess weight on the lungs or by a general increase in inflammation created by excess weight.”

But, he said, their study suggested “another mechanism is also at play”.

“We’ve found that excess fat accumulates in the airway walls, where it takes up space and seems to increase inflammation within the lungs,” Dr Noble said.

“We think this is causing a thickening of the airways that limits the flow of air in and out of the lungs and that could at least partly explain an increase in asthma symptoms.”

‘Major importance’

Prof Thierry Troosters, president of the European Respiratory Society, said: “This is an important finding on the relationship between body weight and respiratory disease because it shows how being overweight or obese might be making symptoms worse for people with asthma.

“This goes beyond the simple observation that patients with obesity need to breathe more with activity and exercise.

“The observation points at true airway changes that are associated with obesity.”

He said more research was needed to find out if this build-up of fatty tissue could be reversed through weight loss but asthma patients should be helped to achieve a healthy weight.

Dr Elizabeth Sapey, reader in respiratory medicine from the British Thoracic Society, said this was the first time body weight had been shown to impact the structure of the airways in the lungs.

“Given the increasing incidence of obesity nationally and across the globe, the study could be of major importance in helping us understand why asthma remains a major health issue and identify new ways to improve asthma treatment,” she said.

“It is only a small study though, and we need to assess this in larger groups of patients and in other lung diseases,” Dr Sapey added.


Ronan Farrow voices Trump, shows off barrage of accents in audiobook – Fox News

October 17th, 2019

Ronan Farrow, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who helped break the Harvey Weinstein scandal, displayed a very different talent in the audiobook of “Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators,” taking on various voices and accents — including a President Trump impression.

Narrating his own work, Farrow tried to give each of the personalities involved in his reporting a unique voice. In the prologue of “Catch and Kill,” he voiced a Russian man named Roman Khaykin who would later became a subcontractor for a “shadowy client.”

“I’m into some cool s—. Some dark stuff,” Farrow said with a Russian accent.

In Chapter One, Farrow revisited the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape that was leaked to the Washington Post during the 2016 election and offered his Trump impression. quoting what the then-NBC star was caught saying.

“I did try to f— her. She was married,” Farrow said as Trump. “She’s now got the big phony t–s and everything.”



Farrow displayed his Australian accent while quoting Dylan Howard — the former top editor for the National Enquirer — in an email that supposedly boasted that he’d retrieved statements from a woman that were damaging to actress and Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan.

“‘I have something amazing,'” Farrow echoed Howard. “The woman had ‘laid into Rose pretty hard.'”

The New Yorker journalist touted an English accent while impersonating Guardian writer Seth Freedman, who was also working on the Weinstein story, revisiting an exchange he had with McGowan.

“‘Obviously everything we say is off the record, but I’ve spoken to people who’ve worked at, you know, say, Miramax, who’ve told me ‘I’m NDA’d’ and they can’t talk about anything that’s happened to them but they’re desperate to say ‘X person abused me or X person made my life hell.'”


Farrow voiced other famous figures from Hollywood. He impersonated New Zealand-born director Peter Jackson, whom Weinstein reportedly encouraged not to cast actresses Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd in “The Lord of the Rings” after they didn’t accept Weinstein’s advances.

“‘I recalled Miramax telling us they were a nightmare to work with and we should avoid them at all costs,'” Farrow said as Jackson.

The “Catch and Kill” author also impersonated actress Rosie Perez, who was said to have tried to encourage one of Weinstein’s accusers to go to police.

Farrow’s book has made major headlines in recent weeks for his reporting on NBC News’ effort to kill the Weinstein story and allegedly trying to shield its then-star anchor Matt Lauer from disturbing allegations against him.


“In a new book, it is alleged that an extramarital, but consensual, sexual encounter I have previously admitted having, was in fact an assault,” Lauer responded in a letter. “It is categorically false, ignores the facts and defies common sense.”

“Matt Lauer’s conduct was appalling, horrific and reprehensible, as we said at the time. That’s why he was fired within 24 hours of us first learning of the complaint. Our hearts break again for our colleague,” NBC News announced last week.


Kurt Sutter fired from ‘Mayans M.C.’ by FX and accepts blame (sort of) – Fox Business

October 17th, 2019

Top television producer Kurt Sutter has been fired by FX as executive producer of “Mayans M.C.” following “multiple complaints” of abrasive behavior at the network, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Sutter, best known as the creator of the hit show “Sons of Anarchy,” was formally dismissed from his work “Mayans M.C,” a “Sons” spinoff he also created. The decision was made by FX Chairman John Landgraf and Disney TV Studios and ABC Entertainment chairman Dana Walden.

In a letter obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Sutter wrote to his cast and crew:

“Apparently, Disney HR and Business Affairs has conducted an investigation into the unacceptable conditions that have been created on the set of Mayans in season 2. As you know, I’ve removed myself quite a bit this season, allowing others to take a bigger role in producing the show. It appears that philosophy has backfired. It’s been reported by writers, producers, cast and crew that my absence and subsequent behavior when there, has only created confusion, chaos, hostility and is perceived as abandonment. Or at least that’s how Disney has interpreted it. I’m sure it’s true.”

The Reporter’s digital rival, Deadline obtained a separate letter that it says was sent to Sutter’s “inside circle” that seemingly contradicted the Reporter’s correspondence,

“Disney letting me go today was apparently based on data collected by HR and Business Affairs from writers, producers, cast and crew. They claim the intel suggests that I created a climate of hostility, favoritism and enabled a set where no one felt safe or appreciated. I know that’s not true.” 

The 59-year-old New Jersey native first rose to fame as a writer, producer and director on FX’s first hit drama series, “The Shield.” In addition to his behind-the-scenes work, he also appeared in front of the camera as the notorious hitman, Margos Dezerian.

In 2007 he became the executive producer of “The Shield” leading the police series to record ratings He remained as the showrunner until it ended its run in 2008 and then went on to create “Sons of Anarchy.” Again besides writing, directing and producing on the motorcycle gang drama, he also acted in the series played incarcerated gang member Otto Delaney.

Before creating “Mayans” last year, he also brought to FX a drama about 14th-century knights, “The Bastard Executioner.” It did not fare as well and was canceled after one season.

FX was acquired by Disney this year when Fox sold its studio assets to the cross-town rival. In the Reporter note, Sutter wrote that he “felt the creative scrutiny of Disney from day one.” adding that notes “on scripts and cuts have been heavy-handed. Demanding a level of dumbing-down story and inane PC restraints like I’ve never experienced before.”

When “Mayans” premiered last year it equaled the success of its predecessor. “Mayans” pulled in 2.53 million viewers among adults 18-49 in its debut last September — almost identical to the premiere numbers for “Sons” in September of 2008. But since then viewership has leveled off and in its second season “Mayans M.C.” is drawing 1.10 million viewers of the 18 to 49-year-old demographic, which is down 30 percent in viewership when compared to season one.
