No leader of any country should be tweeting threats to people and other countries. That would actually force him to talk more and explain policies and answer questions on tape, and we all know how that goes,” Chelsea Handler tweeted.

It was essentially an endorsement.  Anyone aprehensive about an Obama presidency was told not to have any fear.  This was effectively...

    The ever-polished Michelle Obama stepped out this weekend in Montalcino, Italy, and gave us the best inspiration for a vacation style to steal for the summer. The former First Lady wore a pink one-shoulder shirt from Teija, a Finnish designer who trained under Christoper Bailey at Burberry before creating her own label. The shirt added a playful note to Michelle’s post–White House wardrobe, which has largely consisted of tea-length dresses and cashmere cardigans. She complemented the look with cropped white jeans, simple flat sandals, and gold hoops. This chic top is the perfect piece to wear all summer: It...

    On Wednesday, People magazine announced its pick for “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” of 2017 and ― drumroll please ― it’s Julia Roberts, who’s now earned the title a record five times. That’s right, Roberts has been named “Most Beautiful” more times than anyone else, surpassing Jennifer Aniston and Michelle Pfeiffer. She first appeared on the issue in 1991 at the age of 23, fresh from her role in “Pretty Woman.” “I am very flattered,” the Oscar-winning actress said of the recent accolade, later adding, “I think I’m currently peaking.” Now, yes, Roberts is beautiful, but if we’re being honest, so...

Sarandon, who broke off her 23-year relationship with actor Tim Robbins, said she hasn’t received many “offers” to date recently. “I haven’t really had...

    Octavius Humphries' and Seth Smiley's story began on Christmas Eve 2010. They'd met online and, despite a 19-year age difference, agreed to a first date on Christmas Eve. Octavius describes it as an "amazing" first date. And then Seth told him his mother was expecting the two of them for Christmas dinner. "I just thought, nobody really should be alone on Christmas," Seth says. "Me being black and you being white and the age difference," Octavius says, "I thought that this was just going to be a recipe for disaster." But Octavius instantly lit up the house, Carole remembers. "And...

    Women are storming social media to let Donald Trump know that they are still perfectly capable of doing their jobs and living their lives while on their periods, after the presidential candidate made sexist remarks about Fox News host Megyn Kelly. At last week's GOP debate, Megyn, 44, pressed Donald, 69, about comments he has made about women in the past that many have deemed as sexist. Donald, put off by being asked to explain why he's called women 'fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals', lashed out at Megyn, insinuating that she was only being hard on him because...
  • Lena Dunham: Why I Chose To Speak Out

    Lena Dunham writes an essay for BuzzFeed responding to the controversy over a passage from her memoir describing a sexual assault during her college years. It has been almost a decade since I was sexually assaulted. It took me a long time to fully acknowledge what had happened and even longer to discuss it publicly, in the form of an essay in my book Not That Kind of Girl. When I finally decided to share my story, it had ambiguities and gray areas, because that’s what I experienced, because that’s what so many of us have experienced. As indicated in...

    The Army is moving to discharge a decorated combat pilot who intervened to stop two lesbian officers from showing excessive affection on the dance floor at an official ball at Fort Drum, N.Y. Lt. Col. Christopher Downey ended up being convicted administratively of assaulting a soldier trying to film the kissing and grabbing. Col. Downey’s lawyer, Richard Thompson, says his client merely pushed down the camera to prevent photos that could end up on social media. Mr. Thompson said Col. Downey’s commanding officer also convicted him of violating the regulation that ended the ban on gays openly serving in the...

    Four branches of the military have begun sending training material to 2.2 million active and reserve troops as a prelude to opening the ranks to gays, with instructions on, for example, what to do if an officer sees two male Marines kissing in a shopping mall. Key themes are that sexual orientation will no longer be a bar to service, that all service members must respect each other, and that the partners of gay troops will not receive the benefits of heterosexual spouses. “We are going to make [gay ban] repeal training expeditiously,” said Maj. Joel Harper, an Air Force...

    Former US president Jimmy Carter lashed out at British Prime Minister Tony Blair for being "so compliant and subservient" to the Bush administration in Washington. "I have been surprised and extremely disappointed with Tony Blair's behaviour," Carter told the Sunday Telegraph newspaper as he promoted his new book "Faith and Freedom." "I think that, more than any other person in the world, the prime minister could have had a moderating influence on Washington, and he has not," said the 81-year-old former head of state. He faulted Blair for not having been a constraint on US President George W. Bush's decision...

    About 25 revelers celebrated their freedom of speech and welcomed the Fourth of July on Monday night with the "2nd Annual Old Time American Flag Burn." Around a burn barrel at Seabright State Beach, organizer Brent Adams, 41, of Santa Cruz, declared flag burning not a protest, but a celebration of the Constitution's First Amendment. "It seemed like a good idea to burn some flags just because we can," added fellow organizer Sha Lar, 32, of Santa Cruz. The festivities were especially relevant after a constitutional amendment allowing Congress to ban flag desecration died in the Senate last week. That...
