Wait, Did Adele and Her Boyfriend Rich Paul Move in Together?

Breakup rumors? Not on Adele’s watch. 

After speculation abounded that the 34-year-old had called things off with her sports agent boyfriend, Rich Paul, Adele shared a series of photos to her Instagram of the couple getting their PDA on. 

The second image of the carousel, taken at what appears to be a McDonald’s on Valentine’s Day (look closely at the screens), shows Adele with her head thrown back in laughter as Paul looks on. In the fourth image, Adele and Paul share a kiss, by far the most PDA we’ve seen from they typically private pair. Love! Affection! The Dollar Menu! True romance. See the images here.

But hold on, what’s that? In the first image, the couple appear to be holding keys. Back in January of this year, it was reported that the singer purchased Sylvester Stallone’s Beverly Hills mansion…and it looks a lot like the house the pair are posing in front of. Adele captioned the post, “Time flies.”

Rumors that the couple had split began swirling after Paul was seen with his client, LeBron James, on Adele’s 34th birthday last week. With her latest post, Adele effectively shuts down any breakup talk.

The couple made their public debut in July 2021, sitting court side at an NBA game. Adele went Instagram official with Rich Paul last September, sharing a photo of the two canoodling in a photo booth. 

In February 2022, Adele reportedly told Graham Norton that she’d like to have more children after her Las Vegas residency wraps. (She currently shares 9-year-old son Angelo Adkins with her ex-husband Simon Konecki.) Speaking of her residency, which was postponed, she told Norton, “It has to happen this year because I’ve got plans for next year…Imagine if I have to cancel because I am having a baby!”

Prepare for love songs on 35!


Mandy Moore Wore a Plum Slip Dress With a Sheer Skirt

No one is safe from the sheer dress. Not even Mandy Moore. 

While visiting The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, May 10, the This Is Us star put her spin on the sheer dress, the biggest trend of the year, and the result is, well, sheer perfection.

Moore’s stylist, Kevin Michael Ericson, posted the full look on Instagram, which included the Alberta Ferretti dress with sheer panels and ruffle detailing, matching plum stilettos by Aquazurra, and Delfina Delettrez drop earrings.

See-through dresses are all the rage these days—Kerry Washington was one of multiple celebs, including Kate Moss’s daughter Lila, who wore sheer gowns to the 2022 Met Gala. Just recently, Kristen Stewart wore a sheer skirt over a bodysuit while in Monaco.

Moore visited the show to promote her latest album, In Real Life, but of course we’re also all waiting to see what happens to her character Rebecca Pearson as This Is Us draws to a close. Probably not a spoiler to say…we’re gonna cry. As series creator Dan Fogelman revealed during a panel discussion last month, “the second to last script, it made Mandy throw up. Hopefully, not ugly throw up,” to which Moore added, “A beautiful throw up. It was so beautiful and upsetting that that was my physical reaction.”

She repeated the anecdote on Fallon, but added that the actual finale might not be quite so gut-wrenching (literally).

Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick Are Reuniting for A Simple Favor Sequel

Shake up those martinis and put on your favorite deconstructed tuxedo, because A Simple Favor is coming back for more. On Wednesday, May 11, Deadline announced that a sequel to the 2018 comedic thriller starring Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively directed by Paul Feig is officially in the works. 

Kendrick and Lively will reprise their roles, according to Deadline. Feig is set to direct the sequel with a script written by Jessica Sharzer, who penned the original screenplay based on Darcey Bell’s 2017 novel. 

A Simple Favor followed Kendrick as Stephanie Smothers, a widowed mommy vlogger, and the friendship she struck up with Emily Nelson, a P.R. maven with more than a few dark secrets of her own, played by Lively. When Nelson mysteriously goes missing, it’s up to Smothers to find her, with each step she takes unveiling a truly absurd plot twist. The first film also starred Henry Golding, Linda Cardellini, Andrew Rannells, and the inimitable Jean Smart. As of yet, none of them have confirmed or denied their involvement in the sequel—but with A Simple Favor, you never know.

In addition to being both a critical and commercial hit, A Simple Favor has earned a status as a sort of cult favorite, amassing an impressive queer following due, in part, to Lively’s gonzo performance as a dominant queer woman and her character’s impeccable, gender-neutral outfits. In 2020, Lively appeared as a guest on The Whole Movie Podcast: A Simple Pod, an entire podcast devoted to the film. We trust the sick and twisted minds behind A Simple Favor to deliver but one piece of advice: For the love of God, bring back Patti Harrison’s assistant, Kiko.

Here’s Your First Look at Virgin River Season 4

Netflix is very confident in the popularity of Virgin River, which will be in our lives for the next two years, minimum. The streamer picked up the series for a fourth and fifth season, and fans can’t wait.

For the unfamiliar, Virgin River is based on the best-selling Robyn Carr 21-novel series of the same name. It premiered on Netflix in 2019, and the third and most recent season dropped in July 2021. Like the streamer’s hit series Outer Banks, Virgin River features melodrama against a gorgeous landscape, which is a just really long way to say it’s cinematic. 

Starring Alexandra Breckenridge and Martin Henderson, Virgin River tells the story of Mel Monroe (Breckenridge), who leaves L.A. to work as a midwife and nurse practitioner in the remote Northern California town of Virgin River (hey, that’s the name of the show!), thinking it will be the perfect place for a fresh start. Along the way she finds the unexpected, including a love interest in Jack Sheridan (Henderson), who has perfect hair.

Virgin River topped Nielsen’s U.S. streaming rankings in July 2021 when its third season debuted by amassing 2.1 billion minutes viewed across 30 episodes, according to TVLine

The third season of Virgin River left fans hanging with many twists and turns, including some baby-daddy drama. We seriously don’t know how much longer we can wait for season four—and season five, now that we know that’s coming too.

Here’s everything we know about seasons four and five of Netflix’s Virgin River so far:

The release date. All twelve episodes will drop on July 20, 2022. Mark your calendars!

What’s season four about? At the end of the third season, Mel revealed to Jack that she was pregnant…but he may or may not be the father. It sounds like the next season picks up right where that cliffhanger (they were literally on a cliff when they talked about it, LOL) left off.

What To Know About the National May 14 Protest for Abortion Rights

We want to take to the streets, and we don’t want to go alone. And so, we protest for abortion rights—as communities, as cities and towns, as families, as faith groups. This Saturday, May 14, major abortion rights protests plan to take over in every state. Expect a massive, national outcry. 

On May 2, it was reported that the Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that found that access to abortion is a constitutional right. It is simultaneously an emergency and a call to action. States have been limiting, banning, and even criminalizing abortion for years. But if and when Roe falls, it will be like nothing we have seen since the 1970s. States have set up “trigger laws,” such that as soon as the Supreme Court decision goes out, at least 26 states are “certain or likely” to ban abortion, according to analysis from the Guttmacher Institute.

 “Either abortion will be outlawed in your state or your state will become a state that needs to start providing abortions to people who are coming from out of state,” Kimberly Inez McGuire, executive director of URGE: Unite for Reproductive and Gender Equity, told Glamour last week. “So this will have an impact on every single person in this country.”

Across the country women—and nonbinary people, men, and children—feel betrayed and abandoned by conservative lawmakers. Forced birth is already happening. It’s time to take action. Remember: Protests are valuable. But activists who have been fighting on the forefront of the movement for reproductive freedom for years say that it should be just one of many powerful actions taken. Here’s what you need to know about Saturday. 

How to find your local protest 

On May 14, several organizations are planning major protests and rallies in cities across the nation. The biggest centralized effort is the “Bans Off Our Bodies” Day of Action for Abortion Rights. You can find the Saturday “Bans Off Our Bodies” action closest to you right here

“Bans Off Our Bodies” events are being organized by a super group that includes Planned Parenthood, the Women’s March, Liberate Abortion, UltraViolet, MoveOn, and Service Employees International Union (a labor union of about two million healthcare workers). Participants include a range from major nonprofits like the National Organization for Women, NARAL Pro-Choice America, League of Women Voters, to crucial lesser-known organizations like the Yellowhammer Fund, which focuses on abortion rights in Alabama, Mississippi, and the Deep South. 

Another option is Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights. They’re a much newer group, established just this year. They’ve put together several abortion rights protests and have put out a statement signed by luminaries including Gloria Steinem, Alice Walker, Lilly Wachowski, Cornel West, Rafia Zakaria, and Kathy Najimy. Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights has planned protests in 41 cities this Saturday, and you can find the one closest to you here

How to prepare for a protest

Writing for Teen Vogue in 2020, columnist Kandist Mallett recommended a few excellent best practices for protesting: Go with a buddy or a group that you trust and stick together. Wear shoes you can walk in—or run, if necessary. Bring water. Consider a portable charger. Do not take pictures of people in the crowed without their permission. 

Ariana Grande Paired a Bra Top With Her Signature Hair Bow for Her Brother’s Wedding

Perhaps taking a cue from Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande is the latest celebrity to jump on the rising trend of club-worthy wedding looks. The singer attended her brother Frankie’s wedding last week in a custom Vera Wang original that’s equal parts sexy and fun, and the first glimpses of it have hit the Internet.

Ari’s brother wed Hale Leon on May 4 (as in, May the Fourth, a.k.a. Star Wars Day) in a Galaxy Far, Far Away–themed ceremony at the family’s home in Florida that was officiated by family matriarch Joan Grande. The “intimate” affair was even witnessed by a Princess Leia and a couple of sexy Stormtroopers.

The newlyweds revealed their wedding on May 10, writing on Instagram, “Introducing Mr. & Mr. Grande‼️ Yup! We’re MARRIED! Surprise! Hale and I were married at a small intimate galactic ceremony in my family home in Florida on May the 4th be with you, cause we really are both that nerdy. It was the most beautiful ceremony, officiated by my incredible mother, and it brought us even closer together as we took our vows before our immediate families and before God! Special thank you to Dolce & Gabbana for dressing us in these one of a kind tuxedos! We adore them! We then followed our wedding with a joint bachelor party weekend of games with some friends and family…this is only the beginning of the celebrations as we are having a Wedding Ball with all our friends in the upcoming months!…I am the happiest I’ve ever been… I’m married to the man of my dreams, our families have merged together so beautifully, and we are well on our way to happily ever after. I love you Hale Grande. I am so so honored to be your husband.” 

Though the couple’s posts didn’t include any peeks at the “7 Rings” singer, her ’fit was on display thanks to her makeup artist and the good folks over at Vera Wang. Take a look, below.

Selma Blair Opened Up About Getting Drunk for the First Time at 7 Years Old

For the last several years, Selma Blair has been very open about her journey with multiple sclerosis, the neurodegenerative disease she was diagnosed with in 2018. Now, the actor is opening up about her past in a new memoir called Mean Baby.

Blair rose to prominence in the 1990s with a breakout role as Cecile Caldwell in 1999’s Cruel Intentions and went on to star in films including Legally Blonde, The Sweetest Thing, and as Kris Jenner on American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson

“Selma Blair has played many roles,” reads the description from the book’s publisher, Penguin Random House. “But before all of that, Selma was known best as… a mean baby.”

In the memoir and in an interview with People, Blair opened up about her alcohol addiction, saying that she started drinking at the age of seven and was an alcoholic for decades before getting sober in 2016.

“I don’t know if I would’ve survived childhood without alcoholism,” Blair, 49, told People. “That’s why it’s such a problem for a lot of people. It really is a huge comfort, a huge relief in the beginning. Maybe even the first few years for me because I did start really young with that as a comfort, as my coping mechanism.”

“The first time I got drunk it was a revelation,” she writes in her memoir, per an excerpt obtained by People. “I always liked Passover. As I took small sips of the Manischewitz I was allowed throughout the seder a light flooded through me, filling me up with the warmth of God.”  

She adds that when she was seven, “no one was paying attention to my consumption level” at Passover, and she made the realization that “the feeling was not God but fermentation.”

“I thought ‘Well this is a huge disappointment, but since it turns out I can get the warmth of the Lord from a bottle, thank God there’s one right here.’ I got drunk that night. Very drunk,” she writes. Blair adds that she took “just quick sips whenever my anxiety would alight. I usually barely even got tipsy. I became an expert alcoholic, adept at hiding my secret.”

Blair says in the memoir that her relationship with alcohol escalated in her teen years, in college, and into her twenties. 

These days, Blair is doing much better, and hopes that sharing her story will be a help to others. “I’m in a good place,” Blair told People. “I cannot believe all this happened in my life, and I’m still here and I’m okay.”

Mean Baby comes out on Tuesday, May 17.
