Stassi Snaps at Kristen for Max Hookup: ‘So F–king on Brand for You'

Déjà vu? Stassi Schroeder went off during part one of the Vanderpump Rules reunion after Kristen Doute and Max Boyens admitted they hooked up post-filming.

Stassi, 31, accused Kristen, 37, of “pretending” to be friends with Dayna Kathan, who dated Max, 27, while secretly hooking up with the TomTom general manager.

“I’m f—kng shook right now because I thought that Dayna and Kristen were friends, and this is f—king weird,” the Next Level Basic author said on the Tuesday, June 2, episode. “And I thought that Kristen ‘has been in a relationship’ the whole time. When were you single, Kristen?”

The James Mae CEO explained that she slept with Max “twice” in the fall after her on-again, off-again relationship with Brian Carter ended. Stassi maintained that Kristen’s actions were a betrayal to Dayna.

“I have been truly shaken up by this. I’m sorry, Kristen, I feel like this is just so f—king on brand for you to act like you are so close to Dayna and then go and f—k the dude that she’s talking about,” she quipped. “You were born shady, you remain shady, you will always be shady. And you’re a liar and you have no remorse. And that’s what makes you insane.”

Stassi added: “This is about you hooking up with another one of your friends’ ex-boyfriends ‘cause you always need to do that, Kristen.”

Back in 2013, Stassi temporarily cut Kristen out of her life for sleeping with her ex Jax Taylor. Kristen, who was dating Tom Sandoval at the time of the affair, wrote about the situation in her new book, He’s Making You Crazy, which dropped on Tuesday.

“I think the ‘I Lied’ chapter was probably the hardest one for me to write. … Everyone will know that that is about Jax,” Kristen told Us last month about the book. “As far as cast members, I don’t think it’s something that people in my life should be holding on to anymore if they’ve moved past it. So the frustrating part only lies in people bringing it back up as if it’s something that is still current right now. But I do understand from a fan point of view that it’s something that people are always going to talk about, and that’s something I’ve accepted and I’ve forgiven myself at this point. And I think Jax has forgiven himself, and I think we’ve forgiven each other and I know that Tom has forgiven me. So that to me is enough.”

Kristen’s falling out with both the “Straight Up With Stassi” podcast host and Katie Maloney will be addressed during parts two and three on the reunion, but she isn’t confident that they will ever be back on good terms.

“I don’t honestly know. I mean, I said my piece in the kindest way that I could,” Kristen told Us last month. “I got a taste of how they feel, but nothing’s moved forward since then.”

Vanderpump Rules airs on Bravo Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET.

People rent RVs in droves for fun, safe adventures amid chaos

Meet some happy campers.

Sales professional Bennett Prescott, 36, and his family usually spend summers adventuring far from their home in Wallingford, Conn. His job keeps him traveling more than half the year anyway, while his 38-year-old science-teacher wife,  Selena Gell, gets time off. Last year, the couple, with toddler Jacob, made stops in Fire Island, NY; Oregon; Italy and Norway.

But as coronavirus risks loom for the third month and protests crop up across the country, a mobile retreat in rural America seems like the ideal escape. So in May, Prescott and Gell booked a 32-foot-long RV through rent-from-owner listings site RVShare. On Saturday, they packed camping gear, cooking supplies, their bikes and pup Edison into their new house-on-wheels — a Class A 2015 Thor Motor Coach Ace 30.2 — and headed west.

“I’m a lot happier on this trip, where we have a lot of distractions and goals to look forward to and beautiful places to stay,” says Prescott, who is avoiding stops in major cities as riots ripple through them in response to George Floyd’s death last week at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer. The family, wearing masks and staying far from others to prevent virus transmission, has a flexible itinerary. “We’re going to plan as we go. It’s thrilling.”

Akin to protected bubbles, RVs allow for easy movement while maintaining social-distancing and quarantine-like conditions. Their allure during the pandemic and civil unrest is undeniable: RV rentals have increased 1,000 percent since April, while RV sales jumped 600 percent in the same time period, according to the RV Industry Association and Kampgrounds of America (KOA). More than 25 million Americans will go RVing this summer, estimates the association, which also found that 80 percent of recent buyers are first-time owners.

Indeed, Prescott and Gell’s six-week-long trip — on a route that will take them to Gell’s family in Rockaway Beach, Ore., and back via California, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana and Georgia with stops at the Grand Canyon and Utah’s Arches National Park — marks their first foray into this type of travel. One of their first overnight stays, at Greene Eagle Winery in Cortland, Ohio, was blissfully quiet. “There’s nobody here across 60 acres,” Prescott says.

While Prescott and Gell have experience backpacking and car camping, they were still getting accustomed to handling their somewhat “ungainly” RV rental, which has proved “bouncy and loud” during five-hour stretches on the highway. “It’s much better when it’s parked,” Prescott jokes. “The mornings are great. You wake up in your little house on a winery, let the dog out, make coffee. It’s really lovely.”

“We expect RVs to continue to gain traction as a preferred method of travel while consumers are seeking flexible options and a unique way to experience the outdoors,” says Jon Gray, CEO of RVShare. Its rental prices — comparable to other popular companies like Cruise America and Outdoorsy — generally range from $50 to $100 per night for a pop-up trailer to $175 to $275 per night for a Class A vehicle like Prescott’s.

Meanwhile, Janine Pettit, 60, grew up camping with her family and had high hopes of instilling a similar passion in her husband Rick, 66. “That’s not what happened,” jokes the Princeton, NJ-based empty nester, although Rick occasionally meets her on her travels. So, in 2007, Pettit began organizing trips for solo women, founding the Web site GirlCamper.com and blogging for advice-oriented Go RVing.

Pettit tows a 2019 19-foot Off Road Max teardrop trailer by Xtreme Outdoors for weekend trips to the Poconos, the Jersey Shore or Camp Taylor in Columbia, NJ. And she’s looking forward to driving to Kennebunkport, Maine, in August — all while wearing her mask in public and cleaning her hands often. Campground spots are spaced at a safe distance apart, Pettit notes, and her “little house on wheels” is completely self-contained with a bed, kitchen, toilet and shower.

It was in Yellowstone, standing before a waterfall, that she had an epiphany about national parks: “They’re for everyone, whether you’re in a Class A or a van.” The equalizing power of the great outdoors could offer solace during turbulent times, she adds.

“RVing and camping is going to be a route that’s so important to people until our country finds its way. People are stressed and need to get out in nature. It’s healing,” says Pettit, adding that the RV community is known for welcoming all comers, including her interracial family. “When you’re outside, you can decompress and restore. Nature takes you out of a state of trauma.”

Aspiring road-trippers, be warned: With many campgrounds closed or operating at a limited capacity in response to the coronavirus, reservations are filling fast. An increased demand for RVs is also making them harder to secure. Pettit advises either advance planning or remaining ready to pounce if last-minute cancellations arise.

You don’t need to worry about renting, though, if you buy your own house on wheels. Entrepreneur Jesse Itzler, 51, and his wife Sara Blakely, 49, founder and CEO of Spanx, caught the RV bug last year. Along with their four children, who are all under age 10, they camped across Idaho, Wyoming and Montana, visiting state parks along the way. “I love being outside,” Itzler says. “You can pull over and jump into a watering hole anytime. It’s a great way to keep the family contained and see the country with the freedom to create your own timeline.”

So in April, Itzler took the plunge and purchased a 35-foot 2020 Thor Magnitude Super C Class for summer travel from their Atlanta home. That month, they drove to Florida with stops in Clearwater Beach, St. Augustine and Savannah, Ga. With their kids still in school remotely, Itzler describes their sojourn as “one-part home school, one-part ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ and one-part summer camp.” Later this summer, the family plans to drive up the East Coast to Connecticut and then out west to Michigan and Montana.

Itzler, who grew up in New York without much driving experience, has also had to confront the less glamorous underbelly of the vehicle: the power, septic system and water tanks. “I’m not super handy,” he admits, “but the learning curve is part of the fun.”

“We’ve contacted friends and encouraged them to rent RVs and meet up with us this summer,” says Itzler. “There are benefits to flying. I love that privilege. But RVing is literally like having a vacation home on wheels. Home is wherever you park. The party is wherever you park.”

Former RAF officer’s house for sale for £475,000 has WW2 bomb shelter in the garden – The Sun

A FORMER RAF officer’s house has gone on sale for £475,000, featuring an almighty surprise in the garden.

The four-bed home in Watton, Norfolk, is on the market at a guide price of £475,000 to £500,000 – and comes complete with its own Second World War bomb shelter in the garden.



The property sits on roughly one third of an acre and features the underground Anderson air raid shelter at the bottom of the garden.

The bomb blast shelter stretches more than 40ft under ground and would be an ideal spot to store bottles of wine in a ready-made 'cooler'.

Potential buyers could also turn the secret hiding spot into a mushroom farm to grow their own crops.

Or better yet, use it as an underground party location, without disturbing any neighbours.

BOMBERS' BASE

The house has a new boiler and heating system, plumbing and electrics and has also been re-fitted with double-glazed windows.

It was one of several properties built for RAF officers during the Second World War, when Norfolk was the base for Lancaster bombers.

The bombers were deployed to destroy vital German dams – a daring mission immortalised in the Dambusters war film.

Trenchard Crescent, where this house is based, was built in the 1930s to house officers stationed at the nearby RAF Watton airbase.

RAF Watton was used primarily as a bomber airfield before being used by the United States Army Air Force’s Eighth Air Force as an air depot.

It was closed in the mid-1970s but the officers' houses remained.

Anderson shelters were made of prefabricated pieces of metal which were assembled in gardens and buried underground to protect those inside against bomb blasts.

My sweet Baby Boy. I pray that when you get older A CHANGE will finally have come!! I’m going to keep my FAITH! I’m praying that the losses of our Black Kings and Queens won’t be in vain. Enough is Enough! I’m praying for UNITY! I’m praying for the powers that be to unite and decide that it’s time for a change! ❤️✊🏽🙏🏽

“As the father of a black daughter and also two white daughters, I have struggled with what to say today,” the country singer, 30, wrote via Instagram on Sunday. “We have navigated forms of racism directly and while there is mostly overwhelming support and love for our family, sometimes there is just the opposite.”

The Georgia native, who shares Willa, 4, Ada, 2, and Lennon, 3 months, with wife Lauren Akins, went on to write, “I get scared when I think about my daughters and what kind of world they will be growing up in and how my JOB as a father is to show them how to lead with love in the face of hate. To know their worth and value as not only women but human beings.”

As for Waddell, 34, the Bachelor in Paradise alum is teaching her kids, Isabella, 2, and Charlie, 6 months, “love and equality.” She wrote via Instagram on Sunday: “This has lit a fire under [Evan Bass and me] to educate ourselves so we can in turn educate our kids.”

Brit photographer working for The Sun slammed to ground and thrown in cell by cops while covering George Floyd protests – The Sun

A BRIT photographer on assignment for The Sun was slammed to the ground and thrown in a cell by cops while covering protests about the death of George Floyd.

Adam Gray, 33, a New York based photojournalist had been covering rallies in the City to protest against Mr Floyd’s death, after police officer held a knee to his neck while he was handcuffed.


Adam said he was thrown to the ground by police with several officers climbing on him in order to restrain him and handcuffed.

His arrest came after that of CNN reporter Omar Jimenez who was arrested live on air while covering George Floyd protests in Minneapolis.

Adam was walking through Manhattan after taking protest photos on Saturday 30 May when he was detained.

He says that during his arrest, police claimed that they had made several orders for people to leave the area before he had arrived on the street.

"I walked down the street taking photos as I went and then the cops rushed the crowd,” he said.

"I photographed the pandemonium that ensued of them pushing and grabbing protesters before one big cop came at me and pushed me to the ground with his truncheon to my chest.

"I smashed into the floor with my three cameras as three or four cops then got on top of me, restraining me and putting me in handcuffs as I shouted repeatedly that I was press.

"I was really shocked when they arrested me. I was just in total disbelief.”



Despite showing his press pass issued by the US State Department, Adam was arrested and put into a police vehicle.

He was charged with unlawful assembly and is due in court in September.

He was put into a police van with about 20 other protesters then driven down to 1 Police Plaza, Manhattan.

The photographer said he put into a large holding cell of 50-70 people at its fullest with zero social distancing.

Police removed masks and offered no replacements which he described “irresponsible and dangerous”.

Adam was held in custody for eight hours until 9:15am on Sunday 31 May and is now back home in New York.

"The whole time that I was being arrested, I was shouting that I was press and showing them my Foreign Press card, but they just didn't seem to care.

"I've worked in many other countries doing work like this and never has it gone as far as this. I couldn't believe it."

Adam is employed by agency SWNS whose editor-in-Chief Andrew Young described his arrest as “outrageous”.

"This is an affront to press freedom and goes against every principle held dear by all journalists and those it aims to inform,” he said.

 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson's official spokesman said: “The violence in the US over recent days is very alarming. People must be allowed to protest peacefully.

"Journalists should be free to do their jobs without fear of arrest or violence”.

NYPD readying detectives for backup during George Floyd protests

The NYPD is readying its detectives to be deployed on the street as the city braces of another night of tense George Floyd protests, police sources told The Post.

Detectives must be in uniform — hats and bats, in cop slang — until further notice and be ready to be deployed if needed in a rare order the Police Department sent out to detectives via email Saturday.

The directive comes after thousands of protesters flooded the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn Friday to protest the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in Minneapolis after a cop knelt on his neck.

Cops Friday were filmed macing and beating protesters around the Barclays Center and other parts of Brooklyn, where two black state lawmakers said they were maced while peacefully protesting.

The Brooklyn protesters splintered off into violent fractions, torching a police van and damaging many other NYPD vehicles. One woman has been charged with attempted murder after being suspected of hurling a Molotov cocktail into an occupied police cruiser in the early hours of Saturday morning as protests died down.

Tense demonstrations broke out again in Manhattan and Brooklyn Saturday. Crowds shut down Manhattan highways, as cops maced and shoved protesters filling the local streets of Flatbush.

Attorney General Letitia James is investigating incidents of police violence Friday under the directive of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who described scenes posted to social media as “disturbing.”

7-year-old boy throws prom for his 17-year-old babysitter

What a gentleman! Seven-year-old boy throws backyard prom for his 17-year-old babysitter after her dance was canceled – complete with a promposal and a socially-distanced dinner

  • Rachel Chapman, 17, saw her prom at Sanderson High School in Raleigh, North Carolina canceled because of the pandemic
  • The seven-year-old boy she babysits, Curtis Rogers, threw one for her
  • She has been babysitting him after school for over a year, and the boy said she ‘is one of the best people I’ve known’
  • He dressed in a suit and picked a bow tie to match her dress 
  • He also set up a table with flowers and foods she likes, including apples with peanut butter 

A seven-year-old boy from North Carolina thew a beautiful backyard prom for his beloved 17-year-old babysitter after the dance was canceled at her high school.

When Curtis Rogers’ mom told him that his babysitter, Rachel Chapman, would miss her senior prom at Sanderson High School in Raleigh, the little boy suggested that they host a mini prom for her at their house. 

‘I was so surprised,’ Rachel told Good Morning America. ‘I had no idea he was going to go all out. It was very thoughtful and sweet.’

Sweet! Rachel Chapman, 17, saw her prom at Sanderson High School in Raleigh, North Carolina canceled because of the pandemic — so Curtis Rogers threw one for her

Dapper! He dressed up in an adorable suit and matched his bow tie to her dress

Rachel has been watching the little boy part time for over a year, picking him up after school, helping him with homework, taking him to the playground and ferrying him to piano lessons.  

‘She has become a part of our family … he absolutely adores her,’ said Curtis’ mom, Elissa Rogers. ‘She’s a just great person with good heart so it’s been a blessing to have her helping us out with Curtis.’

So the little boy was bummed when the pandemic hit and Rachel stopped babysitting for two months.

When his mom mentioned that she would be missing her prom, too, he immediately responded that they throw her a mini prom to make up for it.

Curtis started out with a special ‘promposal,’ coloring a sign asking her to an at-home party the following Monday.

She turned up that day in her lilac dress, all smiles as he escorted her in an adorable blue checked suit. He even picked a bow tie to match her dress.

The two still maintained social distancing, posing for pictures six feet apart and eating at opposite ends of a long table that was decorated with flowers.

Curtis and his mom prepared a menu with Chick-fil-A, smoothies, and one of their favorite foods — peanut butter and apples — as an appetizer.    

Yum! Curtis and his mom prepared a menu with Chick-fil-A, smoothies, and one of their favorite foods — peanut butter and apples — as an appetizer

‘It was really cute. He was really excited for it to start and make sure he was ready to impress her,’ his mom said

‘I planned it out because Rachel probably wanted to see me a lot,’ Curtis told WTVD. ‘She also is one of the best people I’ve known.’

‘It was really cute. He was really excited for it to start and make sure he was ready to impress her,’ his mom added.

Rachel, who will study public health at East Carolina University in the fall, said she had a great time.

‘It was a sweet thing for him to do,’ Rachel’s mom, Becky Chapman, told GMA. ‘They have a special relationship.’

Jamie Foxx Applauded For Defending Jimmy Fallon About Wearing Blackface

Cancel culture is very much a real thing. Kevin Hart saw a sharp turn in his fan base after he refused to apologize for past tweets and standup comedy routines involving the LGBT+ community and rapper Doja Cat was called out after old videos of her sitting idle as others made racist statements were made public. The latest to come under fire and the call for him to be canceled is Jimmy Fallon.

An old clip of Fallon on SNL dressed in blackface during an impersonation of a Black comedian has resurfaced and fans have not been happy. Just as talk show host Megyn Kelly’s contract with NBC ended early over her comments regarding not seeing an issue with blackface for Halloween, many were hoping Fallon’s fate would be similar. But Fallon’s friend and fellow comedian Jamie Foxx has come to his defense and is being applauded.

Clip of Jimmy Fallon in blackface resurfaces – Fallon apologizes

Footage of a 2000 SNL skit of Fallon in blackface acting as Chris Rock resurfaced online. In the skit, Fallon’s skin is multiple shades darker and he talks in an accent trying to mirror Rock’s. The skit involves Fallon as Rock in an interview with Regis Philbin complaining that there are not enough Black contestants on the game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

Fans flocked to social media to express their outrage but it’s not the first time Fallon has been called out for this particular skit. Nick Cannon spoke of his disgust with Fallon and others who’ve performed in blackface on his Instagram account in February 2019.

Fallon apologized in a tweet, writing, “In 2000, while on SNL, I made a terrible decision to do an impersonation of Chris Rock while in blackface. There is no excuse for this. I am very sorry for making this unquestionably offensive decision and thank all of you for holding me accountable.”

Jamie Foxx defends Jimmy Fallon and fans applaud Foxx’s defense

While many were quick to jump on board to cancel Fallon, Foxx saw things differently. After E! News posted a story about Fallon in blackface to their Instagram account, Foxx responded and disputed the idea that Fallon was making a mockery of Black culture at all.

My hair is magnetically attracted to light.

A post shared by Jimmy Fallon (@jimmyfallon) on

“He was doing an impression of Chris Rock. It wasn’t blackface. We comedians I know it’s a tough time right now. But this one is a stretch,” Foxx wrote.

“On a show called ‘In Living Color’ we played every race. Let this one go. We got bigger fish to fry,” he wrote, hinting to the recent news of unarmed Black men being killed by police as being an example of bigger racial issues to focus on.

Author Eric Metexas responded on Twitter to Foxx coming to Fallon’s defense, considering Foxx’s public statement honorable. 

Thank you @iamJamieFoxx for showing grace and perspective. We need more of this all around.

“I’m with @iamjamiefoxx on this ONE! I am NOT offended by what @jimmyfallon did! The negative INTENT was not there,” wrote another.

“We have so many OTHER things to pay attention to, then someone who we all know does not have a racist bone in his body, perform his art as a comedian. He is funny, NOT racist,” wrote another.

Fallon has yet to respond to Foxx’s comments.

NBA sued for $1.25M in alleged skipped rent payments

Calling off NBA season amid coronavirus was right decision: Houston Rockets owner

Houston Rockets owner and Landry’s CEO Tilman Fertitta discusses calling off the NBA season and reopening restaurants amid coronavirus.

The NBA has been slapped with a $1.25 million lawsuit for allegedly failing to pay rent for its famous New York City store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan for the months of April and May.

The landlord, 535-545 Fee LLC, claims in court papers that NBA Media Ventures LLC missed two monthly rent payments of $625,000 and now owes $1,257,412.96, according to the lawsuit, which was filed Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan. A version of the suit was published online by Law360.com.
