Taylor Swift’s Love of Pets

no comment

For many people this holiday season, celebrating together is impossible because of the global pandemic. Sending holiday cards out is especially important and poignant this season because of the lack of physical connection and also, to cheer up our loved ones in one of the most trying years in recent history. There are various ways people have tried to send holiday cheers, from short notes, to photoshoots, holiday cards are a wonderful way to show someone that you care. We are always fascinated by celebrities and one story manages to blend our fascination for celebrities with our love of the holiday season and a certain furry animal.

People magazine has a piece on Taylor Swift’s holiday cards, which, rather uniquely, features her cats. The magazine reports that the whole story began after the Louisville DJ, Kyle Meredith, tweeted that he had received a holiday card from Swift, and was so excited to enter the holiday season with such an unexpected gift.

The card features her three cats, Olivia Benson, Benjamin Button and Meredith Grey in Santa hats in a black and white background that is reminiscent of her latest album, Folklore, and extends Swift’s best wishes to Meredith, with a cheeky reference to her wish that Meredith’s holiday memories enter folklore.

As People note, many of Swift’s ardent fans, the Swifties, were wowed by the holiday card and many wondered how they too could receive a holiday card from her.

The story follows a pattern of interest in what celebrities have been sending out to friends, family and fans this holiday season.

In analysing Google’s search data on celebrity pets, British fashion and homeware retailer Matalan found that Swift’s kitties were the most popular searches of 2020. Her cats are often featured in her Instagram account and were the subject of more than 979,000 searches.

Second on the list were Kylie Jenner’s many dogs who had an excess of 206,000 searches dedicated to them and are also Instagram’s second most followed celebrity pets. In fact, Kylie Jenner’s Italian greyhounds, Normie and Bambi Jenner, have an Instagram account dedicated to them. The two are famous for having puppies on the night Jenner was to have attended the American Music Awards. The Instagram account had around 380,000 followers, despite the fact that there have been no new posts on the account in years.

The Most Followed Celebrity Pet is Oscar, a dog adopted by Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber in 2018, and which has approximately 937,000 followers.

Matalan’s list, which can be found on their website, also features Sophie Turner’s puppies, Amanda Seyfried’s dog, and Ed Sheeran cats.

Taylor Swift’s holiday cards are a reminder of the importance of pets in family life. In a time at which we are spending more and more time at home, from celebrities to the ordinary person. More and more celebrities have been sharing pictures of their pets with their world and generating a lot of buzz, because, let’s face it, who doesn’t love pets? Keeping our pets healthy and ensuring they have the best available care, from places like the Pharr Road Animal Hospital, is something which resonates with many people.

Are Kim and Kanye really done? What’s at Stake

no comment

Not for the first time, there are reports in the media that Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are getting a divorce. The Hollywood power couple has been married for six years and have four children together. The couple got married in May, 2014 and are approaching the seven-year-itch. The typical problems couples face may not be the cause of their trouble though.

They had their varying issues which grabbed media attention in the past year. In early July, West launched his campaign for president and soon after began a twitter rant that revealed several personal details of their relationship. He revealed that they had considered aborting their first daughter, North, who is now 7-years-old. Understandably, Kim was furious about these revelations but her response was surprisingly compassionate. She asked the media and public for compassion towards Kanye and highlighted his bipolar diagnosis.

Weeks later, they spent time reconciling at their Wyoming property. KardashianWest was photographed in tears and the couple seemed to be actively working on reconciliation when they spent time vacationing in the Dominican Republic in August.

However, in September, it seems West was again off his meds and he made another series of controversial Twitter posts which got him temporarily suspended from the platform.

The couple seems to have spent Christmas and New Year’s apart which seems like the way the couple will spend the future going forward. Kanye has been spending more time at their Wyoming property while Kardashian-West has been spending more time at their Calabasas home. Kardashian-West is studying to become a lawyer and it seems likely that she is reconsidering the type of future she wants to have with her kids. She is also closing the curtain on her long-running reality series with her family Keeping up with the Kardashians. Although they have now signed a deal with Hulu to develop a new TV show.

If the rumors are to be believed, their next attempt at discussing their relationship might just be in a corporate meeting space. Afterall, there are $2.7 billion worth of combined assets to discuss and two major companies in question. According to Forbes, Kanye has a personal net worth of $1.6 billion, and most of it is associated with Yeezy, his individually-owned clothing company, estimated to be worth $3 billion in 2020. He collects around 11 per cent of the company’s annual revenue. Kim Kardashian’s estimated net worth is $750 million, and like Kanye, most of it is tied into  her cosmetics company KKW Beauty, which is worth about $500 million. In addition to their property and company assets, they have millions in assets in art, vehicle and jewelry collections.

The public will simply have to wait and see if the rumors are true, this time. One thing is certain, if anything is to be learned from celebrity divorces is that we can expect that it will be quite expensive.

Remembering Alex Trebek

no comment

Yahoo! Entertainment reflects on the life of Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek, who died in November last year after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Trebek, who died at the age of 80, was revered in the United States and the worldover for his role over 35 years as the host of Jeopardy!. He was surrounded by his loved ones when he died.

“Hanging in”, was Trebek’s stoic assessment of how he was doing after receiving his diagnosis. He said he would fight on till the end, but whatever the outcome, he was unafraid of dying. He worked to always look on the bright side of life, right through his battle with cancer.

Trebek won seven Emmys during a run in which he hosted over 7,000 episodes of Jeopardy!. He was such an icon that when he announced his return for season 37 of the game show, fans were over the moon with delight. His last Emmy was in 2020, proving the enduring quality of his work.

Trebek graduated from the University of Ottawa with a degree in philosophy, before turning to journalism when he got a job with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in the 1960s. Trebek, a native speaker of both English and French, won fans over with his charm, as he discussed a wide range of topics, such as music and sports. It was at the CBC that he commenced his career as a quiz and game show host.

Trebek left for Hollywood in 1973, landing his first gig as host of The Wizard of Odds, a game show which lasted for only one year on NBC. He quickly followed this up with hosting gigs on High Rollers, The $128,000 Question, and Battlestars and Pitfall. Yet, it was only in 1984 that the mustached Trebek was chosen to host a revival of Jeopardy!, a role which changed his life forever and turned him into one of the most recognizable faces on television. Jeopardy! had already had two prior incarnations, the first being from 1964 to 1975 and the second from 1978 to 1979. Being the host of the show was not easy, it took a certain skill, an art, if you like, which he perfected over the decades.

One of the most important things about being the host of the show was that he had to put his ego to the side and allow the contestants to shine. He remarked that the reason he always referred to himself as the host of the show rather than the star, was because he wanted the stars to be the contestants.

Trebek loved to surprise people and sometimes, this meant doing things which defied even how people saw him. For instance, for the 18th season he buzzed off his signature mustache.

When he returned for the 37th season, he did so even though he was in enormous pain. He was already undergoing chemotherapy once a week. To determine the efficacy of the treatment, doctors will often have a patient use an Express MRI before, during and after chemo, to see if there are any substantial changes in the number of cancer cells in the body. Through these ordeals, Trebek kept a positive mindset, and showed a blue-collar, get-up-and-go, against-all-odds spirits that has left his colleagues and fans in awe of that great icon.

Gwyneth Paltrow Talks About her Semi-Retirement From Acting

no comment

Gwyneth Paltrow used to be on a lot of advertising posters for movies, but she slowly slipped from the silver screen spotlight. Why she dropped off the radar was the topic of a lot of discussion until recently. She appeared on SiriusXM’s “Radio Andy” to talk and she cleared up a lot of rumors about her lack of screen performance over the past few years. She managed to win an Oscar at the tender age of 26 for her role in “Shakespeare in Love” and has grown from the performance. In recent times, however, the star’s presence is much diminished, and she’s focusing more on her lifestyle brand Goop.

Doesn’t Much Love Acting

According to The BBC, the part-time actress states that she’s fallen out of love with acting. As a self-proclaimed metric-driven performer, she felt as though achieving so much at such a young age left her with nothing left to aim for. She noted that her disdain for acting came from being a child actor, struggling with her time in the spotlight. The intense scrutiny on what she wore and how she carried herself impacted negatively on her mental state. The result ended up driving her away from the glitz and glamor of the silver screen.

Not Fully Retired Just Yet

Paltrow hasn’t completely retired just yet. Her husband, Brad Falchuck, is the writer on a Netflix series and Paltrow has agreed to act in it. While it’s nowhere near as massive a comeback as being asked to star in another blockbuster, it’s impressive to see Paltrow acting again. Despite her downtime, observers have stated that she hasn’t lost an ounce of the stage presence that won her that Oscar.

Not a Homebody

By her own admission, Paltrow isn’t someone who enjoys being stuck at home. During the interview, she noted that being stuck in a hotel room was never her idea of a good time. It also explains the star’s runaway success with her lifestyle brand. While she might have need for personal injury lawyers due to some unfounded claims she made in the past, she’s still the head of a multi-million dollar brand. The success seems to be mounting, since she’s also starred in a recent Netflix series about Goop, Rolling Stone had a scathing criticism of the ‘facts’ presented in the series however, putting the part-time actress’s brand in a poor light.

Where Does She Go from Here?

Paltrow isn’t done with life yet. She seems to be willing to explore new things. Her former successes are driving her to explore what she can do as one of the world’s few female CEOs. No one’s sure what the future holds for her, but she’s ready to tackle any challenge the world throws at her. She worked with Miramax, run by the infamous Harvey Weinstein, and if she could survive that, she could possibly survive anything. She’s had the drawback of being subordinate to a rough boss, and we can only hope that she remembers and doesn’t subject her own staff to the same attitude.

Larry King in Recovery

no comment

According to reports on ABC News, 87-year old broadcasting legend Larry King, was hospitalized with Covid-19 in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, but has since been moved out of intensive care and is no longer using supplemental oxygen. King was placed in ICU on New Year’s Eve and was receiving supplemental oxygen, but has since recovered well enough to be able to breathe on his own, and share a video call with his three sons, according to a spokesperson for his production company, Ora Media. Health protocols mean that King has not been able to be with his wife of 23 years, Shawn King, or his sons, while he recovers from Covid-19.

Larry King is understood to have been in ICU for more than 10 days. He caught Covid-19 from a health worker who was visiting his home, and one of his sons also tested positive. Given his age and frail health, King is at higher risk of complications from Covid-19, so it is very good news that his condition has improved. In May 2019, King suffered a near-fatal stroke in May 2019, barely weeks after undergoing heart surgery to place a stent in his heart. He had already suffered a heart attack in 1987, and had battled both prostate and lung cancer. The last year was particularly difficult for him, losing his son, ANdy, to a heart attack at the age of 65, and then his daughter, Chaia, to lung cancer at the age of 51, just 23 days later.

King is stoic about the idea of dying, having lost some of the fear of death after facing off so many health scares. He has often joked that he will retire when he dies at work.

King is widely celebrated for his career which began on the radio show, The Larry King Show, which he ran from 1978 to 1994, hosting Larry King Live on CNN from 1985 to 2010. In his distinguished career, King won the Peabody Award and was recognized as one of the leading interviewers in the world, of presidents, celebrities and other newsmakers. His career spanned half a century, including 25 years at CNN.

Many people grew up with Larry King and his interviews were characterized by interesting, entertaining, informative discussions, that spanned many topics. Discussions were always meaningful, and his guests were carefully chosen so that they would have something to contribute to his audience.

California has struggled to contain the spread of Covid-19. The case total is just over 2.45 million, with around 27,000 deaths. California is the third state to have over 25,000 deaths from Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic. New York has had about 38,000 deaths and Texas more than 27,000, according to Johns Hopkins University. King’s case highlights the importance of providing quality home care services for the elderly. The elderly have weaker immune systems than everyone else and more prone to diseases such as lung disease, heart disease, kidney disease or diabetes, which harm the body’s ability to fend off infectious disease. Consequently, it is important to ensure that they have the very best to protect their health and safety.

Pippa Middleton has a Second Child on the Way

no comment

Pippa Middleton, sister to Princess Kate and aunt to Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte, and Prince George, is getting ready to have her second child. People Magazine reports that Pippa and her husband, James Matthews, are expecting their second baby, with much fanfare. The second baby is hot on the first’s heels, with the couple welcoming Arthur Matthews in October of 2018. The pair are notably happy at the new addition to their family, and recent photos have shown them to be all smiles. The couple may be in the market for new Franklin and Ben cribs, thanks to the news. No news has been forthcoming about how far along she is so far, but she hasn’t had to start wearing pregnancy dresses just yet.

Not in Line for the Throne

Despite the closeness of relation, none of the couple’s children will be in line for the throne. Lineage is a strange thing, and genealogists confirm that the children won’t have any claim on the line of succession at all. As it stands, Pippa and James are private citizens, and since James is the head of the household, it doesn’t matter that Pippa is Kate’s sister. The succession only runs down the male line of heirs. Despite this hiccup, both Pippa and James will hold titles.

In 2008, James’s father bought the estate of Glen Affric in Scotland, a feudal barony from the oldest ages of English law. The titles Laird and Lady of Glen Affric will eventually fall to them through succession, but the titles are entirely honorary and denote no nobility in their family. Laird isn’t strictly a title but used to denote someone who lives on the particular barony or estate. Ownership of the plot of land doesn’t grant any noble title as it would have a mere five hundred years ago.

No Rest For A New Mother

Pippa documented extensively how she remained active throughout her first pregnancy and continued doing so after the delivery. She added to her Waitrose Weekend fitness column, pointing out how she keeps fit and sharing how Arthur seems to be following in her footsteps by attending his own baby gym. As Arthur gets older, Pippa may continue to regale us with stories about his growth, as well as search for new ways to engage a growing baby. Arthur’s current baby gym offers both structured exercises as well as free play.

More Happiness in Store

Pippa’s pregnancy is only the most recent happy news for the Middleton family. Pippa and Kate’s brother James got engaged to his long-time girlfriend, Alizee Thevenet, at the end of last year. Details regarding the wedding are still up in the air currently since the coronavirus situation has affected any celebrations that may have been planned. The pair have postponed their plans for getting married indefinitely until the condition resolves itself. At the moment, no one is sure when that will be, but well-wishers of the Middletons hope it will happen soon. The family could do with another big wedding bash to celebrate a newcomer to the family.

How Do Celebrities Get Back To Normal Again After Surgery?

no comment

No matter what you think about celebrities, you’re always going to observe them and judge them. And there will be times that they are vulnerable to specific kinds of changes. For a minute, think specifically about what happens after a celebrity gets surgery. They have to get back into the limelight as soon as possible, so they have to have explanations for the surgery, and they also have to try to heal as quickly as possible to get back into their usual routines.

So what are some situations that celebrities can get into where you can observe these forward processes? You can look at stars after they’ve had liposuction. You could look at them after they’ve had surgery related to pregnancy, for example, if an actress had to get a C-section. And for aging actors and actresses, there is going to be a specific healing time after plastic surgery or facelift. 

Unfortunately, the nature of celebrity means that they won’t have much of a private life – and that means they will be judged even while healing after surgical processes.

After Liposuction

After liposuction, a celebrity is going to want to prevent weight gain. Since weight gain was a problem in the first place, falling back into old patterns won’t get anyone where they want to be. Celebrities have an additional set of resources that they can pull from, so they have the option of hiring a personal trainer or a private chef to make sure they don’t slide backward. 

Whereas ordinary people have to use willpower and personal motivation, celebrities can afford to outsource both of those ideas.

Surgery Related To Pregnancy

What might a celebrity do to recover after the surgery of getting a C-section? If it’s an actress that has to go back to work quickly and relies on her appearance, health and fitness are going to be critical. There are specific types of scars that need time to heal after C-sections, so specific celebrities may choose to hire medical professionals that have top-quality advice, equipment, and topical remedies to speed the healing time.

Plastic Surgery or Facelifts

Ultimately, lots of different celebrities will get a facelift. Because they spent so much time being observed, the general population, along with their obsessive fans, will notice immediately that there is a change in their parents.

 A celebrity might want to go on vacation during the healing process, but when they get back from vacation, it will not go unnoticed that they have a different nose, different lips, different skin under their chin, or lifted wrinkles around their eyes. It can be hard being a celebrity, because with the notoriety and the money also comes criticism as they age.
