The model at the centre of one of the most high profile sexual assault cases against Harvey Weinstein has said she feels "vindicated" after suffering years of condemnation for speaking out. Ambra Gutierrez, born in Italy, was introduced to Weinstein at a theatre reception at Radio City Music Hall, after which the film mogul reportedly took her back to his Tribeca office. Weinstein has denied all allegations of sexual assault.
I’m tired of hearing about how Russia intervened in the recent U.S. election and tired of the talk about collusion, and I’m especially fed up with the speculation that all this will doom the Trump presidency. My weariness is not due to a lack of indignation at how a foreign country covertly helped a reckless con man become president. And I would certainly celebrate if the uncovering of crimes forced President Trump to abandon the White House and slink back to his tower. But I fear that the Russia investigations - and the hope that they will save the republic - are turning too many opponents of this administration into passive, victimized spectators of a drama performed by remote actors over which
Canadian billionaire Barry Sherman may have killed his wife, and then himself in their lavish Toronto home, according to reports on Saturday. The bodies of Sherman, 75, and his wife, Honey, were found hanging side-by-side on the railings surrounding the indoor lap pool in the basement of their mansion on Friday morning, a day after he failed to show up for work at the generic pharmaceutical company that made him rich, according to the Toronto Sun, which cited unnamed sources. Honey Sherman may have been killed in another part of the house and moved to the spot she was found next to her husband, the outlet reported. Toronto cops are treating the deaths as “suspicious,” but said there were no signs
Yinshan Wong had no apparent reason to head to the American River Canyon in Auburn, California, a town her family said she’d never visited before. But on Dec. 3, that’s where Wong, a 33-year-old Sacramento mother of three young children, was driving at 3 a.m. She steered her white sedan off a narrow dirt road and drove down a steep hill between a cluster of houses at the edge of the canyon. She got out of the car, took her purse, containing her cellphone and keys, and set it on the ground. Wearing a knee-high skirt and a thin, short-sleeved blouse, she stepped over a small ditch filled with running water and walked into the dense poison oak and blackberry bushes. She left her flimsy ballet-style
YouTube creators are continuing to rake in money just like celebrities, and followers aren’t shying away from subscribing. Forbes released its yearly breakdown of the digital platform’s highest earning stars, with the majority of the 2017 personalities having content focused on comedy and video games. In fact, nearly half of the roster dedicates the majority of their clips to playing, reviewing and chatting about video games. On the list you’ll find creators as young as seven years old garnering popularity worldwide. You’ll also find two Canadians on the roster, both from the Toronto area. While much of the success of these creators lies with their fanbases, there are also a ton of sponsors that actually give creators a pay day. But, as noted on the list, controversial posts can lead to sponsors pulling their funds and causing stars’ revenues to drop. Still, many YouTube channels are making well into six figures and these influencers are going on to sell out live shows, start clothing lines and release books, too. Together, each of these high paid YouTube stars pulled in $127 million between June 1, 2016 and June 1, 2017. The metrics used to assess stars was based on data taken from Social Blade , Captiv8 and YouTube as well as one-on-one interviews with industry reps in publicity, talent management and entertainment. The majority of the stars have been running their YouTube channel for well over five years and post new videos on a weekly (sometimes daily) schedule. As Lilly Singh notes , “I’ve had a lot of jobs in my life, but creating content on YouTube or being a creator in general feels like three full-time jobs…and there’s no boss giving you direction or telling yo what to do; it’s a complete entrepreneurship business where you drive yourself and you have to channel how successful you want to be and work relentlessly at it.” Here are the top ten YouTube stars doing just that.
Marilyn Monroe was one of the most glamorous and sought-after stars of her time. John F. Kennedy was, well, the president of the United States. After Marilyn performed a steamy rendition of "Happy Birthday" at the commander-in-chief's 45th birthday party in May 1962, rumors of an affair were propelled - and those rumors have persisted throughout history, even though details of an ongoing relationship between the two are actually pretty scarce. The first time Marilyn and JFK were confirmed to have been at the same place at the same time was at the April in Paris Ball on April 11, 1957, at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in NYC; Marilyn was there with her then-husband, playwright Arthur Miller, while John attended with his wife, Jackie, and his sister, Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
