    How a handful of Democratic activists created alarming, but bogus data sets to scare local and state officials into making rash, economy-killing mandates. As U.S. state and local officials halt the economy and quarantine their communities over the Wuhan virus crisis, one would hope our leaders were making such major decisions based on well-sourced data and statistical analysis. That is not the case.A scan of statements made by media, state governors, local leaders, county judges, and more show many relying on the same source, an online mapping tool called COVID Act Now. The website says it is “built to...

    Harry Connick Jr. recalled an “unpleasant experience” with Frank Sinatra when he was “completely inappropriate” with his then-girlfriend and current wife, model Jill Goodacre. The jazz artist remembered getting choked up during a performance in front of Sinatra, who died in 1998. “That was an unpleasant experience because as much as I wanted to sing for him and everyone else … I don’t get nervous but I was really nervous for that and I blanked out,” he said on the UK’s “This Morning” (via Yahoo News). “I completely forget the words. I was with my wife, then my girlfriend, and...
  • Early Epstein accuser: Police could have stopped him in 1997

    More than two decades before Jeffrey Epstein took his own life, a woman went into a California police station and filed one of the earliest sex-crime complaints against him: that he groped her during what she thought was a modeling interview for the Victoria’s Secret catalog. Alicia Arden said she never heard back from investigators about her complaint. No charges ever came of it. And to this day she sees it as a glaring missed opportunity to bring the financier to justice long before he was accused of sexually abusing dozens of teenage girls and women.

    The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is canceled, according to model Shanina Shaik. “Unfortunately the Victoria’s Secret show won’t be happening this year,” Shaik said of the show, which has run for over 20 years, in an interview with The Daily Telegraph published on Tuesday. “It’s something I’m not used to because every year around this time I’m training like an Angel.” Victoria’s Secret didn’t immediately return HuffPost’s request for comment. “But I’m sure in the future something will happen, which I’m pretty sure about. I’m sure they’re trying to work on branding and new ways to do the show because...

    A Brazilian model drowned in Sao Paulo after jumping into the sea during a raging storm to try to rescue her puppies — the second runway walker from the South American city to die in a week. Caroline Bittencourt, 37, leaped into the sea on Sunday after her two dogs fell off a catamaran as winds reached 62 mph.

The model’s body was finally found late Monday near Cigarras Beach, her father-in-law, Alfredo Sestini,...

    A former Playboy model and "Big Brother" star has died under mysterious circumstances shortly after making explosive claims linking a number of celebrities to pedophilia. Argentinian-born Natacha Jaitt’s naked body was found over the weekend following a house party in Buenos Aires. Local media report there was evidence of drug use found at the scene — but in an eerie twist, the socialite and former Playboy model seems to have predicted her own death just months earlier. In April last year, the 41-year-old took to Twitter to claim her life was at risk after receiving unspecified threats. "WARNING: I am...

    Transgender model Mia Isabella, who was involved in the reputed Tyga and Kylie Jenner cheating scandal, said she and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick were once in a romantic relationship. Isabella originally remained quiet about her love for Kaepernick to “protect” him. “I loved him very much and he cared for me greatly, but in order to protect his brand I made him walk away from me,” she told International Business Times via email Monday. “Knowing the persecution he would face because I’m a Trans woman.” They have not spoken since late September, she added.

Sabrina Jales St. Pierre, who has modeled for brands such as Victoria's Secret, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren, alleged in a lawsuit filed June 5 in Riverside County Superior Court that her visit to the Embassy Suites by Hilton Palm Desert in 2016 affected her modeling career.

    It can often be useful for elections analysts to find a previous election to cite as a model for the current one. For example, Brendan Nyhan was fond of referring to 2012 as “Bizarro 2004,” where the Democratic campaign ran roughly on the same trajectory as the Republican campaign of just eight years earlier (and even concluded with a similar margin). There are a number of potential analogues for this year’s midterms, but my mind keeps wandering back to 2006. Here’s the interesting thing: A year like 2006 might not be enough for the Democrats to take the House. The...

    “I’m fat, I’m black, and I’m very visibly Muslim, this is going to make some people angry, and it’s going to empower some,” Vernon told WWJ Newsradio 950’s Zahra Huber. Vernon had some doubts before making the video, as she knew that she would receive a lot of negative comments. She changed her mind, and decided she wanted to “show people stuff that’s never been done before, by a person who looks like me. I’m going to be super true, super raw, super high-fashioned with it, to basically make you see it,” said Vernon. She admitted that she lacked self-confidence,...

Twenty-year-old model Gabriella Engels alleges that the incident occurred on Sunday night in the Capital 20 West hotel in Johannesburg, where she and friends were going to meet up with one of Mugabe’s sons. Per The Guardian, Engels told local media the following: We were chilling in a hotel room, and [the sons] were in the room next door. She came in and started...

    ed kidnapping of British model Chloe Ayling in Italy has become more complicated after it was revealed that she was seen shopping with her alleged captor during the period she was supposedly being held hostage. Ayling's Italian attorney, Francesco Pesce, told reporters that the 20-year-old woman feared for her life and went on the shopping trip after deciding it would be better to cooperate with her captor. "She thought the best idea was to go along with it and be nice to her captor," Pesce told the BBC. "He told her he wanted to release her somehow and some time."...
