This is why Usher and Chilli from TLC broke it off

Step aside, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears! The former popstar couple and their matching ensembles had nothing on singers Usher and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas’ relationship. With the TLC singer hanging on Usher’s shoulder, the couple were Hollywood’s “it” couple of the early 2000s. Fortunately, we have the “U Remind Me” video to thank for being the reason these two ended up together — however, this was not the first time they met. Usher and Chilli first met in 1993 when Usher first signed his deal at the age of 14, and Chilli was 21 at the time, as Zimbio reported. Those ages sound unsettling at first, but the former R&B duo wouldn’t begin dating until 2001, eight years later.

Many of their fans had super heart eyes for Usher and Chilli’s relationship. If you couldn’t tell from their red carpet appearances together and their steamy music videos throughout the years, the chemistry between the couple was through the roof! Sadly, their relationship couldn’t withstand the hardships. The pair called it quits in 2003 in a sudden split, per Showbiz Cheat Sheet. Rumors swirled back then that Usher cheated on Chilli, but Chilli seems to claim otherwise.

Usher never technically cheated on Chilli, but there was someone in the picture

Usher and Chilli’s split in 2003 was quite misleading for fans who believed Usher stepped out on the TLC singer during their relationship. In 2010, Chilli admitted what went down between her and the “U Got It Bad” singer. According to her, there was another woman in the picture while the couple took a break, as per Showbiz Cheat Sheet. Still, the former couple kinda seemed to acknowledge that infidelity played a part in the demise of their relationship. 

Chilli sat down with VH1’s Behind The Music and recalled how she found out about Usher’s side chick. “I never thought of him cheating, I don’t know… I didn’t expect anything like that from him because of how much we loved each other,” Chilli said (via The Boombox). “But I kept hearing about it, then I went to him and I asked him and he… admitted it.” (For his part, Usher said, “I cheated and it didn’t work from there.”)

Chilli later explained her reasoning for leaving Usher in a 2013 Us Weekly tell-all interview. The magazine reported that the singer didn’t actually cheat on her.

“I don’t care how much my heart was hurting, sometimes you’re just supposed to be with people for a reason and it’s not always a lifetime. Even if you want it to be, it just doesn’t work out that way.” Chilli also noted that Usher’s 2004 Confessions album was not about her; instead, the songs on the album pertained to Jermaine Dupri’s personal situation at the time.

Regardless of their relationship’s end, Chilli says that everything is “all good” between her and Usher almost two decades after their split. “But I’ll always love him, forever, because he was my first adult love, a real love,” Chilli added. “But we’re cool, we’re really cool. There’s no hard feelings, nothing like that.”

Scheana Shay: This Text Ended My Friendship With Stassi Schroeder

Scheana Shay knows what she did to Stassi Schroeder — but she’ll probably take a Pinot Grigio anyway. The SURver is giving more insight into her falling out with her former Vanderpump Rules costar.

The Biggest Reality TV Feuds

“Long story short, she thought that I was sharing her private messages to me in my Huddles groups, which is like a live, Zoom, FaceTime interaction with fans,” the 35-year-old “Scheananigans” podcast host began on the Friday, October 23, episode. “And I’m like, ‘First of all we barely talk, so we don’t have very many private messages to share.’ The only thing that I recall mentioning in a group with them about text messages was about that message she sent me about my miscarriage and how sweet it was and maybe I read a part of the text? I don’t recall doing that. But I do remember talking in a Huddles about how sweet the message was she sent me.”

Scheana added that after Stassi, 32, was fired from Vanderpump Rules for her past racially insensitive comments in June, fans of the Bravo series reached out to the “Good As Gold” singer via Community, an app that connects stars to their fans through text.

Where Does the ‘Pump Rules’ Cast Stand With Stassi?

“A fan had asked after she got fired like, ‘Have you checked in on Stassi? How is she doing?’ And there were hundreds of messages. I responded to one and I said, ‘Haven’t heard back from her but spoke to Beau,’” Scheana said, referring to Stassi’s now-husband Beau Clark. “That was all! Just like, ‘Yes I’ve checked in,’ that was it. And I guess that got screenshot, put into a Facebook chat, and she was like, ‘Please don’t be talking about me right now.’ And I was like, ‘I’m so sorry, that was the only message I responded to.’ So between that one text and me sharing her sweet miscarriage text, one of those pissed her off and she said that she had no desire to talk this out with me, and she wanted to remain surface level.”

Scheana went on to call Stassi’s response “bulls—t,” noting that they haven’t been close in years.

“The fact that you don’t even want to hear me out? I said, ‘We’ve been surface level for years, Stassi. I’m fine continuing that way. I wish you the best,’” Scheana recalled. “And then I unfollowed her. … I don’t follow people I’m not friends with anymore so you wanna be surface level? Then I’m not gonna follow you. I had her on mute for months anyways.”

Former ‘Pump Rules’ Stars: Where Are They Now?

Stassi, who is pregnant with her first child, a baby girl, subsequently unfollowed Scheana. During her first interview post-scandal on the Tamron Hall Show in September, the Next Level Basic author revealed she has no plans to return to reality TV or feud with her castmates.

“My life feels very different right now,” she said. “I think when something like this happens and you get pregnant on top of it, you take inventory of your life and you think what is going to be the best for my future child, and I think getting drunk and starting conflict and misbehaving on a reality show isn’t my journey anymore.”

Is THIS the first look at the John Lewis Christmas advert?

Is THIS the first look at the John Lewis Christmas advert? Kent residents claim the top secret TV spot was filmed on their street after spotting a camera crew and fake snow

  • Residents of Orpington, Kent, think the John Lewis advert was filmed there 
  • Spotted a crew decorating houses and covering a roundabout with fake snow
  • Camera operators were also seen filming child actors getting a ball out of a tree 
  • John Lewis declined to comment and said the advert will remain a surprise 

It is one of the most hotly-anticipated events of the festive season, and now social media users believe they’ve had the first early glimpse of the John Lewis Christmas advert. 

Residents of Orpington, Kent, claim the TV spot was filmed on their road after houses were decorated in twinkling lights and a local roundabout was covered in fake snow.  

TikTok user @mlockers shared a clip of film crew hard at work, adjusting lights as they filmed a ‘snow’ covered tree in the middle of the roundabout. 

Residents of Orpington, Kent, claim the TV spot was filmed on their road after houses were decorated in twinkling lights and a local roundabout was covered in fake snow

Part of the road was blocked off to allow the film crew to work in Orpington, Kent

Another resident told the Daily Star that he had seen two child actors, a boy and a girl, trying to get a ball out of a tree, giving perhaps the first hint about what the advert will be about. 

He said: ‘It was really impressive, they made the area look like Christmas time.

‘They covered the big tree in snow to make it look like Christmas. The little girl and the little boy were looking up at the tree and throwing an umbrella to get it down.’

The resident said production teams had covered nearby properties in decorations, as if Christmas was in full swing.

John Lewis has not commented on whether the filming was linked to its TV advert or released any further details. 

The Christmas advert has become one of the hallmarks of the festive season for many Brits and often sparks hoaxes or false claims about the storyline, setting or music.

Last year’s advert featured Edgar the Excitable, an accident-prone dragon, and the year before was the retelling of Sir Elton John’s life story. 

One of the most memorable adverts in recent years was the tear-jerking Man On The Moon from 2015.

A John Lewis spokesperson said: ‘We are lucky enough to enjoy lots of speculation around our TV ads but we never comment because we want to keep the surprise.’

This is the President Trump we should have seen weeks ago: Goodwin

The best Trump ever.

That’s what America saw in Thursday’s debate as the president finally found his stride. He was substantive, measured and relatively calm — a combination that enabled him to give the best debate performance I’ve ever seen from him.

His repeated focus on jobs and economic growth reflected the success of his first three years and why 56 percent of survey respondents recently told Gallup they were better off than four years ago.

The president neglected to mention that important survey, but, asked what he would say to those who didn’t vote for him if he won, his answer captured the same optimism: “Success is going to bring us together.”

Where’s that guy been hiding?

The appearance was a surprise because this Trump was a completely different person than the rude, snarling president who turned the first debate into a mess and jeopardized his re-election chances. This one learned from those mistakes and was consistently disciplined throughout the 95 minutes.

Yet because most polls show him trailing Joe Biden, Trump was also eager to open another contrast, so he frequently brought up the e-mail evidence that the former vice president was directly implicated in son Hunter’s shady business dealings around the globe.

Again, the president was aggressive without being overbearing, yet had to repeat the details because of the outrageous blackouts by Big Media and Big Tech of the stories. But the new charges from Tony Bobulinski, the insider-turned-whistleblower, that he met with Joe Biden personally to discuss a suspect deal with a Chinese energy company will likely force the issue more into the open.

Biden’s answer, that “I’ve never taken a penny from a foreign source in my life,” sounds a lot like his earlier claim that he’d never even discussed his son’s businesses with him. We know now that wasn’t true.

Notably, however, Biden still did not dispute the specifics of Bobulinski’s charges or claim that the e-mails were not authentic.

He huffed and puffed about Trump not releasing his taxes, but that’s an old story and the tangled web surrounding the Biden family business plans is a new one.

Overall, Biden didn’t have an especially bad night — until he got near the end. His embrace of climate change and something resembling the Green New Deal led him into a dead-end where he declared that “I would transition away from the oil industry.”

Trump pounced, saying, “That’s a big statement,” several times. Biden foolishly agreed, saying, “It is a big statement,” and even moderator Kristen Welker then seemed stunned, asking Biden, “Why would you do that?”

In a perfect summation of their positions, Trump added, “He’s going to destroy the oil industry,” and Biden responded, “We have to move toward net-zero emissions.”

Biden’s other big problem was that Trump skillfully put the Obama-Biden administration on defense, as if the election were about them instead of him.

On paper, the questions were in Biden’s favor. A segment on the coronavirus lasted about 20 minutes, which should have been a huge advantage to Biden because he has made the deaths of 220,000 people the centerpiece of his campaign.

Yet Trump, while not winning the exchange on his handling of the virus, played good defense and eventually was able to shift the focus to how fast states should reopen. A clear difference emerged, with Biden endorsing vague conditions for reopening businesses and schools, while Trump emphasized the need to get the economy back up and running, warning that “the cure can’t be worse” than the problem.

“There are businesses that are dying, Joe, you can’t do that to people,” he said in one effective exchange.

The president was also sharp on other topics that should have been to Biden’s advantage. Although Welker reflected the Washington press corps’ obsession with race and climate change, Trump managed to contrast what he had done with the record of the previous eight years.

Even on race, he was able to tick off a list of reforms, including in prisons and criminal justice, and ask repeatedly why Biden didn’t do the things he’s now promising when he had a chance.

At one point, Trump answered his own question, saying, “It’s because you’re a politician and all talk.”

Welker was the best of the three moderators in this cycle, but she still talked and interrupted too much. Why moderators insist on cutting off spontaneous exchanges because “we have a lot of questions to get to” makes no sense. Let them talk!

Perhaps sometime in the next election cycle a moderator will have a brainstorm and realize that 70 million Americans actually tune into hear the two people running for president.

This is what Jane Levy wants to sing in Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Season 2

If you’ve ever wondered what your life would be like as a musical, this show makes those dreams a reality. Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is the ultimate trifecta: It’s a musical, comedy, and drama series all rolled into one. Jane Levy, who plays the lead role, breathes life into the show almost seamlessly. With her smooth vocals and perfectly timed dance moves, you would never know that Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is her first time snagging a singing and dancing role (via EW).

Already a fan favorite, the comedic timing in this series is second to none. But what really makes Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist stand out is that it doesn’t shy away from deeper topics that truly mirror life. In season one, viewers see Zoey’s father Mitch struggle with, and eventually pass away from a neurological disease. This storyline is based on the director’s personal life, which makes it ten times more heartbreaking and realistic. 

This show does a great job balancing tough but authentic topics with music that has an impact. So far, the show hasn’t held back when it comes to covering diverse music genres and artists such as Seal and Nina Simone (via Bustle). But there is one genre that Levy is hoping to see featured in the hit TV series.

Jane Levy wants to try her hand at country music in Season 2

Levy made an appearance on Variety and iHeartRadio‘s podcast The Big Ticket, where she shared the one genre her character Zoey hasn’t dabbled in yet: country! “I would love to hear some country music. If there’s any genre that’s about like a yearning heart, it’s country,” she explained. Levy’s booming voice lends itself to that music genre. Now we’re picturing the cast belting out songs by country superstar and all around phenomenal songwriter Chris Stapleton.

Levy went on to describe what artist she’d love to hear covered on the series. “I know Bonnie Raitt’s not country, but she sort of is. I would love for somebody to sing Bonnie Raitt. She’s one of my favorite musical artists of all time,” she added. Fingers crossed that we’ll get to hear Levy emulate Raitt’s soulful sound in a rendition of “I Can’t Make You Love Me”!

This body lotion from Ameliorate transforms keratosis pilaris

How to get rid of chicken skin: This body lotion from Ameliorate transforms keratosis pilaris and rough skin – and it’s now 25% off on Amazon

Keratosis pilaris, also known as KP or chicken skin, is a genetic condition that causes stubborn, rough, bumpy goose pimples on areas like your upper arms, legs, thighs, and butt.

The common condition is harmless and caused by a build-up of keratin around the hair follicles. This occurs due to a lack of sebum, the natural protective oil which lubricates the skin.

Although it’s tough to treat, particularly in the winter when your skin becomes drier, some treatments and creams that contain salicylic, glycolic or lactic acid, help to gently loosen the dead skin cells and alleviate the symptoms.

Now 25 per cent off, Ameliorate is a dermatological skincare brand that has been designed specially to help treat keratosis pilaris

Enter the Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion, which has been hailed as one of the best products on the market to treat KP, working as both an exfoliant and skin hydrator. Even better, right now, you can scoop up the top-rated lotion for 25 per cent off on Amazon.

The lightweight game-changing lotion, which now costs £16.88, is designed specially to help treat keratosis pilaris and is formulated with lactic acid and sweet almond oil to help smooth bumps and soften skin.

It’s no wonder why more than 500 shoppers have given the lotion an overall 4.4-star rating on Amazon, with users describing it as a ‘miracle for keratosis pilaris’. Based on the reviews, you won’t be disappointed.

‘This a great product for keratosis (bumpy arms)’, wrote one five-star reviewer. ‘I have used it once a day, and my arms have improved so much. They feel smooth. I am now ordering my third tube.’

‘I have suffered from Keratosis pilaris since childhood and over the years have tried various creams/ointments but have failed to find anything effective…. up until now!’ another happy review noted.

Keratosis pilaris also known as KP or chicken skin is a completely harmless skin condition caused by a build-up of keratin around the hair follicles

‘This cream has made a huge difference to the appearance of my skin (I apply to my legs) and my skin is super soft! A little goes a long way and soaks in very quickly. I highly recommend this product and wouldn’t be without it.’

For best results, use the Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion twice daily for four weeks, and from then onward, apply daily to maintain the skin’s condition.

While there’s no clear scientific reason as to why one person might develop keratosis pilaris, we hate to break it to you, but it’s often thought to be genetic – so blame your parents.

Just don’t be tempted to pop, over-exfoliate or scrub in a bid for smooth skin – it’s the quickest route to redness and irritation.

Trump says he may do this if he loses the election

Even if you’re not all that political, the upcoming 2020 election is hard to ignore. While the outcome is still hard to predict even just weeks out from when voting closes on Nov. 3, 2020, President Donald Trump has a plan for if he loses the election — and it’s not what most people might expect from the Republican incumbent.

The 2020 election is particular in many ways, not the least of which is that many states offered mail-in ballots and opened up for early voting to allow for social distancing due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. That means counting all the votes could take a little longer than usual, and Trump already suggested that he would take the results to task if he loses, citing possible voter fraud with the mail-in ballots, per the New York Times

Per the outlet, experts say that voter fraud is extremely rare, and even more so when it comes to mail-in voting. Nonetheless, the president claimed that his administration would be monitoring the vote count more closely than ever. “We have people watching. We have U.S. attorneys watching. We have sheriffs watching. We have U.S. marshals watching,” Trump said.

Despite the unlikelihood of voter fraud and his promise to be “watching” as the votes come in, Trump has a plan if he loses the election to former Vice President Joe Biden. 

Donald Trump seemingly changed his tune about how he'd react to the election results

Although President Donald Trump suggested in September 2020 that he wouldn’t commit to leaving office even if he lost the election, per Vox, he’s now singing a different tune. At a campaign rally in Georgia in mid-October 2020, via Business Insider, Trump suggested he would take a seemingly drastic measure if he lost to Joe Biden. “Could you imagine if I lose? I’m not going to feel so good. Maybe I’ll have to leave the country, I don’t know,” the president said, although it’s unclear if he was joking.

At the time, per CNN, Biden was ahead of Trump in polls and campaign contributions, but Trump added that he wasn’t worried about money: “I could raise more money. I would be the world’s greatest fund-raiser, but I just don’t want to do it.” According to another CNN report, Trump has more to worry about if he loses office than just booking a trans-Atlantic flight. The outlet reported Trump could run into legal issues with a number of ongoing investigations.

“In every regard, his leaving office makes it easier for prosecutors and plaintiffs in civil cases to pursue their cases against him,” Harry Sandick, a former federal prosecutor in the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office, told CNN. “For example, he is claiming a higher protection from subpoenas in the criminal cases and also in the congressional subpoena cases, [and that] is based largely on the fact that he is President.”

Several celebs wanted to leave the country in 2016 if Donald Trump won

Threatening to leave the country depending on the outcome of an election is all too common, especially when it comes to President Donald Trump. Back in 2016, his opponent Hillary Clinton never tossed the idea around (at least in public), but many celebrities did, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Back then, dozens of celebs were triple-checking their passports, including Lena Dunham, Snoop Dogg, Whoopi Goldberg, Miley Cyrus, Cher, Samuel L. Jackson, Amy Schumer, Bryan Cranston, Barbra Streisand, and Chloe Sevigny, among others. For the record, many of them never actually packed their bags and left America for good, though some did. Raven-Symoné for example had an entire special about a temporary move to Canada with her family. 

The 2020 election is arguably even more contentious than the 2016 election, and no matter what side you come down on, the election results are going to matter. Most of all for the president and his family, it seems.

This is Maddie Ziegler’s number one beauty tip

The world first got to know Maddie Ziegler when she was just 8 years old, appearing on the Lifetime reality series Dance Moms. Throughout her six seasons on the show, we witnessed her becoming a teenager and evolving as a dancer. Ziegler shot to stardom in 2014 when she starred in the now-iconic music video for Sia’s hit “Chandelier.” With her newfound fame, Ziegler left Dance Moms in 2016 and entered a new career phase.

In June of 2017, at the age of 14, Ziegler landed a modeling contract with modeling agency IMG, the same agency that reps Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Miranda Kerr, and many other big names. The dancer celebrated the news on Instagram, stating, “SO happy to be apart [sic] of the IMG family alongside these incredible people.” Shortly after signing to IMG, Yahoo! Sports reported that Ziegler would be executive producing a web series revolving around young models scouted by IMG after using the Instagram hashtag #WLYG. 

Ziegler was all in on this new phase of her career. Being a part of the competitive dance world for so many years, the dancer was more than familiar with beauty products and makeup. In the summer of 2020, Ziegler launched her first makeup collaboration with massive beauty brand Morphe, called Morphe X Maddie Ziegler.

Now that she has her own line of products, she revealed her number one beauty tip. Keep reading to find out what that is.

Maddie Ziegler wants you to throw out the makeup rule book

In an interview with People promoting her new makeup line in June 2020, Maddie Ziegler recalled, “My love for makeup started when I was six years old. I started doing my own [dance] competition makeup because I actually didn’t like the way my mom did it. I learned how to do false lashes, everything — and from there on, I just have been obsessed with makeup.”

Via an Instagram post announcing the launch of the Morphe collaboration, Ziegler wrote, “sometimes when i can’t find the right words to say, i’ll just translate it in makeup. if i’m feeling off, makeup is my way to feel better. i’ve always been able to express my emotions through makeup. its such a therapeutic thing for me.” Makeup and beauty mean a lot to Ziegler, and she’s been able to learn from her past “questionable” makeup looks but has no regrets. 

Ziegler’s number one beauty tip is that makeup has no rules. She shared with Girlfriend in June 2020 that if you’re not happy with how your makeup turns out, you can wipe it off and start all over again. Her advice is to embrace your creativity and “play around and try things that maybe seem weird in your head. Trust me, some of the most random ideas that I have end up turning out the best,” she said.

Take Maddie Ziegler’s advice and pick up that makeup brush to start experimenting and creating!
