Jessie J Revealed She’s Dating Dancer Max Pham Nguyen


Jessie J is all boo’d up!

Jessie J has a new man in her life! The singer revealed she’s dating dancer Max Pham Nguyen in a sweet post she shared on Instagram.

Jessie said she decided to go public with the news after the Daily Mail published unflattering photos of her and Nguyen eating together, labeling him her “male pal.”

“A story was posted today. The article was actually sweet,” Jessie wrote. “BUT… THE PICS?! Yoooooo!!! 😂😂😂😂😭😭😭😭. Got me looking like an old man who owns a boat, basically Lord Farquard’s Dad growing out an old haircut. 😂😩.”

“Meanwhile @max__pham was REALLY trying my salad that I loaded onto my fork. 😩😂 So … Max and I thought you guys deserved some better picture options,” she continued. “Saving you hiding in cars and bushes.”

“PS. He isn’t my male pal,” Jessie added.

Jessie seems to be happy with her new beau, though. She noted that they “laugh a lot” whenever they spend time together. How cute!

Matt Helps Rachael After She’s Hurt, Serena P. Leaves


Sorting out their feelings. Matt James reconsidered how serious he was about the remaining four women during hometown dates on the Monday, February 22, episode of The Bachelor.

Michelle landed the first date, taking him bike riding and introducing him to her students via video chat. She told Matt her parents were hesitant for her to join the show because she had to put her life on hold, but they agreed to support her no matter what. Michelle revealed she would say yes if Matt proposed and she thought he was The One, while he said he would move to Minnesota for her.

Rachael, for her part, organized a skydiving date because trust is a big factor for her in relationships. However, things took a turn when she slammed into the ground upon landing. Matt ran over to check on her and confessed that he didn’t realize how strongly he felt for her until watching her get hurt. She cried over his admission and was appreciative of his concern for her. She later told her mom that makeup was covering the injuries to her face.

Rachael’s family — specifically her dad — was skeptical about the fast process, but she hoped Matt would ask for her father’s blessing. She admitted she was in love with him and noted she would accept a proposal. Ultimately, she was let down when Matt opted not to ask for permission to pop the question. He didn’t want to do it with all four families, but he promised to call Rachael’s dad closer to time if the opportunity arose.

Bri and Matt went off-roading in a Jeep during their date. He wanted to move past their level of comfort with each other, but she was scared to tell him she was falling in love with him. Matt believed he and Bri had a special connection, and although she wanted to put up a wall, she told him about her feelings.

Serena P., meanwhile, introduced Matt to her Canadian culture. He then met her family, who expressed their doubts that she was ready to get engaged. Serena’s anxieties deepened about making a mistake with Matt since she had hoped her hometown date would help her become more confident about taking the next step.

Matt felt something was off with Serena, so he confronted her before the rose ceremony. He told her he intentionally spent more time with her than the other women to build their connection. She thought she was afraid of her feelings for him, but she realized he was not her person. Matt was shocked and disappointed, but he wanted Serena to be happy. She chose to leave, which made Matt worry that the remaining women might do the same.

At the rose ceremony, Matt encouraged Bri, Rachael and Michelle to be sure they were ready for an engagement before accepting a rose. They all decided to stay and received roses.

The Bachelor airs on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.

Jojo Siwa Says She’s “Happy” in Heartfelt Video About Coming Out


The reality TV personality also took a moment to acknowledge that her coming out experience might not look like everyone else’s.

“Right now what matters is that you guys know that no matter who you love, that it’s OK and that it’s awesome and that the world is there for you,” she explained. “I know everyone’s situation is different and it might be harder for some people and easier for some people to come out or [to] be themselves but I think coming out has this stigma around it—that it’s this really, really, really scary thing, but it’s not anymore.”

“There are so many accepting and loving people out there that it’s OK,” she continued. “Of course, people are going to say it’s not normal, but nothing is normal. Literally, not one thing about anybody is normal and it’s OK not to be normal, it’s OK to be a little different… And I think a lot of people are afraid of being different, and that’s something we should never, ever be afraid of. That’s something we should be proud of… I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, that’s what matters.”

When asked how long she’s been part of the LGBTQ+ community, Jojo said she “doesn’t know.” 

As she put it, “I think my whole life… I liked people but I had never fallen in love before. But I always believed that my person was just going to be my person. If that person happened to be a boy, then great. If that person happened to be a girl, great.”

Chrissy Teigen Just Revealed She’s Four Weeks Sober


Chrissy has previously opened up about her struggles with drinking.

Since that tragic loss, Chrissy has returned to social media, and it’s been really inspiring to follow her journey to healing.

Today, in a comment on Instagram, Chrissy revealed that she’s currently four weeks sober — and fans are rallying behind her.

It all started when Chrissy posted a video of herself doing a dance on her vacation in St. Barts. “Good morning!!!” she captioned the post.

When a fan wrote in the comments that they wanted “whatever drugs you’re on,” Chrissy responded by revealing that she’s “4 weeks sober”:

Fans are now responding to Chrissy’s comment with messages congratulating her.

And people who have gone through the experience of getting sober are sending Chrissy words of encouragement and support:

Chrissy has previously opened up about her struggles with alcohol. In a 2017 interview with Cosmopolitan, she talked about a time in her life when she was “point blank, just drinking too much”:

I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show. And then I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected. And that feeling, there’s just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It’s not a good look for me, for John, for anybody.

In that same interview, she revealed that she has a family history of alcohol abuse, and that she’s realized she’s someone who “can’t just have one drink”:

Nobody really brought it up to me. They just assumed that it was OK because I always felt OK the next morning. I knew in my heart it wasn’t right. It makes you very short with people.

“I used to think it was kind of nutty to have to go totally sober,” Chrissy told Cosmopolitan at the time. “But now I get it. I don’t want to be that person. … I have to fix myself.”

Congratulations to Chrissy on taking such an important step. We’re all rooting for you.

Backers of Haaland for Sec. of Interior irked she’s being called ‘unqualified’


The New Mexico Democrat was elected to the U.S. House in 2018 and, as vice chair of the House Natural Resources Committee and chair of the Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands, has overseen hearings on installing zero-emission infrastructure in the national park system; the harm caused by removing National Forest roadless protections; and resource studies by the Interior Department on public lands.

As 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben wrote in The Guardian on Thursday, Haaland also introduced the 30 by 30 Act, which “sets a national goal of conserving at least 30% of the land and 30% of the ocean within the United States by 2030.”

“Appointing Rep. Haaland would be more than just historic, but a sign of a new path forward for Tribal Nations and indigenous communities across the United States regarding the trajectory and priorities of our government,” said Bridgett Todd, communications director for UltraViolet. “Her perspective would help the United States cut carbon emissions that we are contributing to the global climate change crisis and curb our dependence on fossil fuels… Her championship of public land conservation is one example among many of her tireless work to protect and maintain America’s national parks, forests, and natural resources.”

If appointed as head of the Interior Department—which oversees the Bureaus of Indian Affairs and Indian Education—Haaland would be the first Indigenous leader to serve in the role. Last month, more than 120 advocacy groups and Indigenous tribal leaders voiced their support for Haaland’s nomination.

“The Bureau of Indian Affairs still has significant impact upon the 574 recognized Indian tribes, and in setting policy impacting upon all enrolled tribal members including the Indian Health Service,” wrote the supporters, including the Indigenous Environmental Network, the Gwich’in Steering Committee, and the Water Protector Legal Collective. “In addition, the Department of Interior is responsible for defending tribal sovereignty, ensuring that the legal trust responsibility of the United States toward Indian nations is upheld, and that Indian land oversight is conducted in a responsible way. Rep. Haaland has intimate knowledge of all of this.”

McKibben wrote that an Indigenous person serving at the helm of the Interior Department would be “a remarkable plot twist in the American story,” particularly after the past four years in which President Donald Trump has waged repeated attacks on public lands, including the shrinking of two national monuments to allow for fossil fuel extraction.

“A gesture can’t repair much of the damage that’s been done, but it can serve as a constant reminder of the debt still to be repaid,” wrote McKibben. “There’s never been a Native American cabinet member. For most of our history, sadly, it would have been an outlandish idea; now it feels absolutely necessary.”

Despite Haaland’s history of fighting to preserve the lands that the Interior Department oversees, according to the HuffPost, Biden advisors said this week that the congresswoman “is not qualified” and pushed the potential nomination of  Michael Connor, who is a member of the Taos Pueblo tribe and served as a deputy interior secretary in the Obama administration before joining international law firm WilmerHale. Leaders of Connor’s own tribe are among the Indigenous leaders who back Haaland’s nomination.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

At Daily Kos on this date in 2019—The newest would-be House Republican: Former White House doctor Ronny Jackson:

Because the Republican Party is just gawdawful at this point, just absolutely child-punchingly gawdawful, it stands to reason that the pressure to recruit increasingly terrible people to fill the party ranks would rise accordingly. Non-insane House Republicans continue to retire rather than try to beat back frothing would-be replacements, sending the whole party ever-rightward and efficiently purging anyone with dignity, a conscience, or a basic grasp of reality.

It stands to reason, then, that disgraced White House physician Ronny Jackson would throw his hat in the ring to replace the retiring Rep. Mac Thornberry in Texas’s hard-right 13th District. Trump had been so impressed with Jackson’s bedside manner that he nominated him last year to head the Department of Veterans Affairs; that nomination turned into one of the White House’s many no-vetting train wrecks when it almost immediately came to light that Jackson had an alleged history of drunkenness on the job and a reputation for dispensing pills, shall we say, lavishly to White House staffers, allegedly earning him the nickname “Candyman.” Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson would soon withdraw his nomination and eventually leave his White House post in disgrace, amid an ongoing U.S. military probe of the allegations against him. That investigation, in fact, remains open.

Camila Cabello Says She’s “Learned a Lot About Love” With Shawn Mendes


Camila hasn’t been the only one to share private details about her romance. Earlier this month, Shawn candidly discussed his relationship and even admitted that he was “on the verge” of ruining things with the “Havana” singer.

“I went through a month where I couldn’t really even communicate with her because I was struggling with anxiety, and I didn’t want her to see me weak,” the 22-year-old star said in a podcast interview with Zane Lowe on Nov. 17. “And I was on the verge of ruining our relationship.”

He added, “And then when you come out on the other end, and you’re like, ‘Listen, I’m struggling here. It’s hard for me to even say this to you.’ And everything starts building and growing and getting stronger, and the roots fortify, and you look around, and you’re like, ‘Oh, s–t.’ Bravery. That’s bravery. That’s strength.”

Shawn said he and Camilla allowed themselves to “give everything more time and space” in their romance so it could blossom organically. From the looks of Camila’s latest post, it’s clear things have.
