    The day of Jazz Jennings‘ gender confirmation surgery was an emotional one for the whole family. In PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday’s episode of I Am Jazz, the 18-year-old transgender reality star is joined by her parents and siblings in the final moments before being wheeled off to the operating room. “Having my whole family with me throughout this entire journey has been so important,” Jazz says. “From the beginning they have just provided me with unconditional love and support and the fact that they’re here on this day just signifies that we’ve come so, so far since the...

    SAO PAULO/BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil’s new President Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday that he would be open to the possibility of the United States operating a military base on his country’s soil, a move that would form a sharp shift in direction for Brazilian foreign policy. Bolsonaro, who took power on Tuesday, said that Russia’s support of President Nicolas Maduro’s “dictatorship” in neighboring Venezuela had significantly ramped up tensions in the region and was a worrying development. Asked by the SBT TV network in an interview taped on Thursday if that meant he would allow U.S. military presence in Brazil,...

    During searches tied to the investigation, authorities found "thousands and thousands" of videos and images on Robicheaux's phone other women who are believed to be victims of the pair. The women in the videos appear to be "highly intoxicated beyond the ability to consent or resist, and they're barely responsive to the defendant's sexual advances." "Based on this evidence, we believe that there might be many unidentified victims out there," Rackauckas said. On Jan. 9, 2018 the defendants were found in possession of large quaintness of illegal drugs and Robicheaux was found with two illegal and unregistered assault rifles, four...
  • Bill Loud, the Father of TV’s ‘An American Family,’ Dies at 97

    Bill Loud was not the first person to play the role of a father on television. What made him a pioneer was that he was not acting — and that he was often not acting responsibly. In 1973, when PBS broadcast “An American Family,” Mr. Loud, who died on Thursday in Los Angeles at 97, was the tan and philandering head of an affluent real-life household whose domestic dramas in Santa Barbara, Calif., were captured on camera for 300 hours and edited into 12 hourlong episodes now regarded as the genesis of reality television. “An American Family” shocked American families....

    The four-minute movie trailer was created to show Chairman Kim the power and glory that could be his if he lays down his nukes. President Trump pitched paradise to Kim Jong Un in a four-minute movie trailer made especially for the summit in Singapore last week, complete with cautionary tale, dramatic musical score and a lot left for the imagination. It features the two men and images of glory and strength: the perfect tease for the chubby millennial ruling North Korea known for killing off family members and playing video games. Kim is like Trump. They love screens and they...

    Her name is Monroe Christine. She is twenty months old. She was born on television. You see, Monroe belongs to a reality television star and his partner—Jeff Lewis and Gage Edwards of Bravo’s Flipping Out. Her conception, gestation, and birth were part of the drama of the show, and now her parties and wardrobe and babbling continue to be part of the show. The men will not do business with the woman who gave birth to Monroe ever again. Her name is Alexandra Trent, and she’s suing the men and Bravo. As part of the transaction, Alexandra agreed to have...

    Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro has told Trump administration staffers that she would be interested in taking over as attorney general from Jeff Sessions, Politico reported Thursday. Pirro, who has been a vocal supporter of President Trump since his campaign, has repeatedly told Trump aides since the election that she would like to be the attorney general, according to the report. The Fox News host has frequently used her show to target Sessions, and recently described him as “the most dangerous man in America.” However, aides told Politico that Trump is not seriously considering Pirro for the job. He...

    EXCLUSIVE: Randy Quaid, the next senator from the Great State of Vermont? We’ll pause a moment while that concept sinks in. ========================================================================================== The veteran actor tweeted a threat/warning Thursday claiming that reps from a superPAC have approached him about running against Bernie Sanders for his U.S. Senate seat next year. And a reality show pitch about that potentially wacky race is making its way around town. Public Spectacle Media is planning an unscripted series that would follow Quaid’s long-shot bid to become the junior senator from the Green Mountain State. Some very powerful people representing a super pac have approached...

    Liberals made a big deal out of the report that Fox News has dropped its old slogan "Fair and Balanced." The liberal media always made a mockery out of it, rejecting it as "false balance." It's "false balance" because the conservative view is false. From their arrogant viewpoint, only the "truth" is worth reporting. That same worldview infects public broadcasting, which has been a left-wing propaganda project from its very beginnings in President Lyndon B. Johnson's days. They passed the Public Broadcasting Act with a meaningless rhetorical bow to fairness and balance, and liberals made sure any legislative teeth in...

The company isn't being picky about who can apply either. They're accepting applications from families, single people, and roommates.

    In with one reality TV star and out with another. As former ‘The Apprentice’ star Donald Trump takes the oath as the 45th president of the United States on Friday, former ‘Jeg er ambassadřren fra Amerika’ star Rufus Gifford will board a plane and leave Denmark. What’s that? You’ve never heard of ‘Jeg er ambassadřren fra Amerika’ or Gifford? Well the Danes sure have. Gifford has been the US ambassador to Denmark since 2013 and was warmly embraced by the locals from the second he arrived in Copenhagen. Part of that is down to his movie star looks and his...

    Remember the weighty advice Barry had for presumptive Republican presidential candidates a few weeks back? “…the presidency “is not entertainment — this is not a reality show.” Boy, we wish that were so. However, during his recent FEAT (Far East Apology Tour) Barry Obama appeared with Anthony Bourdain for a taping of his show - Parts Unknown, a CNN foodie travelogue. The foodie and the druggie shared a lunch of bún chả and beer; Tony praised Barry’s chopstick skills and picked up the tab. In case you’re not familiar with Tony, he’s the former chain smoking, coke sniffing, heroin addicted...

    WATERBURY, Conn. — A confident Donald Trump told supporters Saturday that he's "not toning it down," a day after his chief adviser assured Republican officials the GOP front-runner will show more restraint on the campaign trail. "I'm not toning it down," Trump told a cheering crowd of 3,000 people, packed into a high school gymnasium in Waterbury, Connecticut. "Isn't it nice that I'm not one of these teleprompter guys?" Trump's new chief adviser Paul Manafort met Friday with top Republican officials and told them his candidate, known for over-the-top persona and brashness, has been "projecting an image." "The part that...

    A candidate like Donald Trump should be impossible. A loud, unscripted, hard-edged reality show-style candidate with exceedingly flexible positions on many hot-button issues would be laughed out of contention for the Republican nomination in other years. A man whose serial gaffes and willingness to stick his thumb in the eye of the gatekeepers of good taste would be cooked before he stepped onto the debate stage. An utterly inexperienced politician, who describes our rights and privileges as particular to us as Americans rather than universal moral mandates, would be rejected by both parties at any other time in the modern...

    Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is again warning his party of the dangers of a Donald Trump nomination, saying a three-man race likely paves the way for the New York billionaire to capture the nomination on the first ballot of this summer's GOP convention in Cleveland. The former Massachusetts governor, in an interview on "The David Gregory Show" podcast says Tuesday's New York primary is an important moment in the primary fight. "If (Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Ted Cruz) are both going at it aggressively until the very end then I think Trump gets it on the first...

    Tsk, tsk. Donald Trump’s effort to reset his campaign following defeat in Wisconsin showed no signs of paying off this weekend, as a series of technical failures by his campaign set his hopes back even further. From Thursday to Saturday, Trump suffered setbacks in Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, South Carolina and Indiana that raise new doubts about his campaign’s preparedness for the long slog of delegate hunting as the GOP race approaches a possible contested convention. He lost the battle on two fronts. Cruz picked up 28 pledged delegates in Colorado. In the other states, rival campaigns were able to place...

    April 6, 2016 Ivanka Trump Scarves Recalled Because Of "Burn Risk" Scarves made in China and sold as part of Ivanka Trump's fashion line are being recalled because they are too flammable and pose a "burn risk" to consumers. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday that no injuries have been reported. The recall involves about 20,000 rayon scarves, sold from October 2014 through January 2016 in department stores and online. They range in cost from $12 to $68. A representative for the Ivanka Trump brand, which includes clothing, accessories and fragrances, said that it is disappointed for the...

    Usually when Trump makes a wild accusation there’s some dubious peg on which to hang it, like when he claimed that Cruz was behind the ad in Utah from Liz Mair’s anti-Trump Super PAC targeting Melania Trump. That wasn’t true, as even Trump superfan Sean Hannity eventually admitted, but the ad obviously was designed to move votes to Cruz. Trump assumed culpability, wrongly, because Cruz benefited.What’s the peg for this new claim, though? Or have we reached the point where Trump is gaslighting his fans without any tether to reality? In an error-riddled statement released Tuesday night, the Donald...

    WAUSAU, Wis. — Donald Trump took his campaign Saturday to central and western Wisconsin, the parts of the state where he is most popular. On a day that alternated between sunshine and snow, Trump and opening act Sarah Palin filled the Central Wisconsin Convention & Expo Center just outside Wausau. The line to go through security and enter the rally was long, and blessedly indoors as the temperature outside fell below freezing. Below, a look at the experience of trying to get into a Trump rally. (When this video was taken, the room was already about half full, and some...
