Huffington Post - 13 days
Dozens of people on Twitter are writing digital and handwritten love letters for Valentine’s Day, and they’re signing them with #ToImmigrantsWithLove. The letter writing campaign was first launched in December by Define American, a non-profit pro-immigrant organization, and Welcome.us’ I Am An Immigrant movement.

Huffington Post - about 2 months
With only two weeks left until Barack and Michelle Obama vacate the White House for good, the first family welcomed a host of celebrity guests on Friday night for a star-studded farewell party.  Aside from an awards show, there haven’t been this many famous people gathered in one room since a casting call for a holiday-themed Garry Marshall romantic comedy.  The White House bash effectively serves as the kickoff to events celebrating President Obama’s time in office, leading up to his final address, which he’ll deliver in Chicago on Jan. 10. Days later, President-elect Donald Trump will call 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. home after his inauguration, for which he’s struggled to find big-name performers.  In contrast, Obama’s farewell party attracted some of the biggest A-listers around. Attendees reportedly included Meryl Streep, George and Amal Clooney, Robert De Niro, Beyoncé and Jay Z, Nick Jonas, Jordin Sparks, David Letterman, Paul McCartney, Kelly Rowland, Olivia Wilde and Jas ...

Melania Trump's Latest Compliment From The Fashion World Is Just Absurd
Huffington Post - 2 months
She’s stayed well out of the spotlight since Election Day, but Melania Trump hasn’t been spared the opinions of top fashion designers ― both negative and otherwise.   We should have known it would be Vogue legend André Leon Talley, though, who would give us the most interesting sound bites yet. His required-reading interview with the New York Times, published Wednesday, delves into how Talley spent time considerable time with Trump in the past, helping her pick out the epic Dior gown she wore to marry Donald in 2005, and how he really feels about the incoming first lady. Aside from calling Trump a “nice person” who impressed him with “’impeccable’ manners and legs that are ‘a long drink of water,’” Talley delivered the strangest compliment we’ve read yet:  He also said that she was the most fastidiously groomed and exquisitely moisturized person he’d ever met. (He now gives that honor to Kim Kardashian West.) Perhaps Trump was slathering on products that would later ...

Jason Sudeikis Says Olivia Wilde Almost Gave Birth At A Beyoncé Concert
Huffington Post - 4 months
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis welcomed their second child, a girl named Daisy, last week. Though their little one was delivered in an Upper East Side hospital, things almost didn’t turn out that way.  During an appearance on Harry Connick Jr.’s talk show Friday, Sudeikis revealed that the two were in a car on their way to a Beyoncé concert when Daisy figured she wanted to make an appearance.  “We were in line to get in the Lincoln Tunnel and there was an accident in there,” the actor said. “Everything was gummed up, so it was going to take us like an hour to get through the tunnel, and we would have been a half hour late to the concert, which would have been a bummer because we would miss all the choreography and fireworks.” Another kind of fireworks started when Wilde began to have contractions and the two high-tailed it out of the tunnel.  “I don’t know if it was the pressure, if it was the traffic, or the fact that we were going to be late. It was just bad in the bac ...
