Radar Online says Gisele Bundchen has allegedly left Tom Brady in Florida and is heading to New York to jump-start her modeling career. A source tells the website, “Even though Gisele is not walking on the catwalk anymore, she wants to stay at the forefront of the fashion industry. If Tom is going back to work, then so can she.”
Thirsty For News, citing People magazine, says Tom Brady must retire after this season in order to save his marriage to Gisele Bundchen. A source tells the news outlets, “She doesn’t hate that he’s playing football, but she sure hates the way he handled the retirement and coming back,. He knows that, and he’s doing what he can do to smooth things over. He does know that this is his last season if he wants to stay married. He can’t do this again. So now all he can do is make this season count, spend time with his family whenever he can, and then retire at the end of the season. She’s a very ‘pros vs cons’ person, and she sees very few pros to him playing anymore.”
Life & Style Weekly Magazine claims Leonardo Dicaprio and Gigi Hadid are allegedly hooking up. A source tells the magazine, “Leo and Gigi have hooked up a few times this Summer. They have known each other for several years. They’re super attracted to each other. She is exactly his type: gorgeous, sexy but low-key with a one-of-the-guys attitude.”
A source tells Hollywoodlife.com, ''Gigi is taking things slow given Leo’s “reputation” as a playboy. It was exciting to be getting this kind of attention from one of the biggest movie stars in the world. She was warned to proceed with caution. People keep telling her what a catch he is and she isn’t completely closed off to the idea of dating him, but it’s just not where her head is at, at the moment, She’s enjoying his friendship and getting to know him better for the moment.”
Reese Witherspoon tells the USA Today newspaper that ''Top Gun: Maverick'' has inspired her and others to make ''Legally Blonde 3''. “I’m still hoping that Legally Blonde 3 is gonna come together in the right way. It’s just like Top Gun. They waited a long time to make another version of that movie, and I loved the nostalgia piece they incorporated in it. So definitely, [Top Gun: Maverick] gave us a lot of inspiration about what we would want to do with Elle Woods and make sure that we had all those same touchstones that mattered to people [back] then. I feel like these characters are my friends, so I safeguard them. I would never make the subpar, mediocre version of their story.”
Radar Online claims Will Smith has allegedly been banned from ''Saturday Night Live'' because he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars. A source tells the website, “Smith will never ever be invited back to SNL after what he did to Chris. The show is a temple comedian, and no one wants him around anymore. Forget hosting, Will won’t even be able to get a ticket to sit in the audience anymore. He’s not welcome. If Will Smith was invited back, SNL would never get another big celebrity ever again. Stars would rightly boycott the show if he was welcomed inside Studio 8H.”

He really wants everyone he cares about to love her the way he does, but the reaction has been pretty lukewarm. Ben’s mom is polite about Jennifer and cordial, of course, as are his brother and skeptical buddies like Matt.

Midlife Crisis Is Real
A new study by the National Bureau of Economic Research reveals that the 'Midlife Crisis' is real. Researchers studied people in their 40s and 50s before concluding: "The paper offers new evidence that midlife is a time when people disproportionately take their own lives, have trouble sleeping, are clinically depressed, spend time thinking about suicide, feel life is not worth living, find it hard to concentrate, forget things, feel overwhelmed in their workplace, suffer from disabling headaches, and become dependent on alcohol."
The self-care campaign "Mind Your Back" has discovered a new phenomenon known as "Work-From-Home Back." The company found that 64% of young adults are suffering from back problems, due to working from home during the pandemic. 32% of the young adults have lower back pain from poor posture. A majority of them did NOT have back pain before the pandemic began. Many adults say the pain has prevented them from exercising and participating in their usual hobbies. Mind Your Back adviser Dr. Gill Jenkins says, "Almost half of home workers don't have constant access to a table and supportive chair during their working day. Unfortunately, 20% have to work while sitting on a sofa or bed. This plays absolute havoc with posture and spine health. Caring for our backs can reduce stress and boost energy, so we can live our lives to the fullest without pains and aches holding us back."
Several of the other mothers in my neighborhood are mad at me because I refuse to pay their daughters what they want for babysitting. I have a 7 month old. When the girls babysit for me, I don't pay them during the time my child is sleeping. Why should I pay them for playing on their phones? The other mothers think I'm a horrible troll and have told their daughter's to no longer babysit for me. I do pay them when my child is awake and they are caring for them. Am I wrong for the way I pay my babysitters?
