HTGAWM’s Viola Davis and Aja Naomi King Reveal When They Feel Their Best

A little self-love and care goes a long way! Viola Davis and Aja Naomi King both spoke to Us Weekly about when they feel like their best selves and what goes into it. And the two actresses who star alongside each other in Shonda Rhimes’ hit show How to Get Away With Murder had similar sentiments to share.

Davis, 53, admitted she feels her most powerful when she’s just being herself. “When I can be myself and I am comfortable being myself, when I can totally be in the moment, that’s what makes me feel powerful,” she said at The Hollywood Reporter’s 27th Annual Power 100 Women in Entertainment Breakfast in Hollywood.

Costars Reunited!

King has certainly taken note. “Viola is kind to every single person she encounters, the 33-year-old actress explained. “She loves to joke, she loves to dance. She is just fun to be around. I think it comes from self confidence. She’s not afraid of making a fool of herself. Not trying to pretend to be cool. She’s silly and just incredible.

For the two ladies to feel like their most authentic selves, they love to be surrounded by women who support them.

“A lot of times what’s aligned is if I’m in the company [of people] who understand and encourage my authenticity and a lot of times its me, just sort of talking to myself and honoring my inner voice,” she said at the Fiji-sponsored event.

As for King? “I value myself. I typically surround myself with people who value themselves. The way that I am with my friends. … I hope that everyone has that experience. To be surrounded by people who are like ‘Yeah, you’re special. You’re worth it,’” she told me Us at the L’Oréal Paris Thirteenth Annual Women of Worth Awards.

If the two ladies ever need that extra confidence boost, they’re all about taking a little time out for self-care. Davis’ activity of choice? “Epsom salt baths. Oh, my God. The best, absolutely,” she exclaimed. And King enjoys letting her mind rest for a moment. “Sometimes I get really stressed out. Stress wreaks havoc on the body. I’m trying to be more mindful about how I let things affect me … and just breathe through everything because a problem is only a problem if you make it one,” she explained.

Khabib Nurmagomedov set to face Floyd Mayweather on May 4 when UFC contract expires, according to Russian's father

The MMA star, 30, called out the retired American, 41, after his explosive victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229.

Plans for the fight have not materialised because UFC chief Dana White has insisted it would have to take place in the cage.

But Mayweather has confirmed that it will only go ahead if it is on his terms because he is the "A side."

Khabib, who boasts an MMA record of 27-0, is willing to step into the boxing ring to make the fight happen.

And his father Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov has confirmed that it can take place when his deal expires on May 4 in Russia.

He told iZ.ru: "A fight with Floyd is possible after the end of the contract with the UFC.

"This is interesting not only for us, but also for serious investors. This may happen May 4 in Grozny."

And his father confirmed last month that his son would be "interested" in taking on Conor Mcgregor again – but this time in the boxing ring.

Khabib has revealed that he is more interested in fighting Mayweather in a boxing match than defending his UFC lightweight title.

At a recent press conference, he said: "For legacy and in the sense of the money aspect, and in a sporting sense, I think the Mayweather fight is much more interesting."

When Khabib called out the American in October, he said: "50 and 0 versus 27 and 0, two guys that never lose.

"Let's go, why not. Because in the jungle there is only one king, only one king."

And the former five-weight world champion responded: "Oh, we fighting!

"I'm in the cheque cashing business. I mean, I'm my own boss so I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end but on my end we can make it happen."

This Is Us Didn't Get Nominated For a Single Golden Globe, and Fans Are Not Happy About It

This Is Us Didn’t Get Nominated For a Single Golden Globe, and Fans Are Not Happy About It

If you’ve ever watched This Is Us, then you already know how amazing the show is. On top of incredible performances from the talented cast, the show is filled with emotional twists in every episode. So, when the 2019 Golden Globe nominations were announced on Dec. 6, fans were completely shocked that the hit NBC show wasn’t up for a single award — no nomination for best TV drama and no nominations for best actor or actress in a TV drama.

The snub is pretty surprising seeing that the show has been nominated for countless awards over the past two seasons, including a few Golden Globes. In 2017, the show was nominated for best TV drama and best supporting actress for Chrissy Metz and Mandy Moore. In 2018, Sterling K. Brown even took home best actor in a TV drama — marking the first win for a black actor in the category. Here’s hoping the SAG Awards will show This Is Us more love with their nominations.

The Blacklist: Red is behind bars in season 6 trailer, first look photos

It’s all over for Raymond Reddington (James Spader).

Well, not all over. When NBC’s The Blacklist returns, Red — or rather, whoever’s been posing as Red for 30 years — won’t expose who he is to Liz Keen (Megan Boone), but he will be arrested and put behind bars. The twist comes early in season 6, and according to EP John Eisendrath, has been an arc the writers have wanted to do for a long time.

“We’ve always thought that someday on the show we would like to dramatize Red getting arrested,” he says. “He’s the most wanted man in America, a fugitive who’s managed to elude the authorities for 30 years, so we always thought, just in theory, that it would be a great story to see what happens when he is in fact arrested.”

As seen in the exclusive trailer for the new season above, Red faces consequences for his crimes. Because Liz and the task force must disavow him to protect themselves, he has no way out — for now. “They can’t just go in and say, ‘Hey, guess what, he’s on our team,’” EP Jon Bokenkamp points out. “Red’s sort of left on this island out there trying to fend for himself. Seeing what his life would be like completely turned upside down and how he navigates that system — we just thought that was a really interesting, dark story to tell that we haven’t done yet.”

Though he may seem just as calm and collected as always in the teaser, Red’s “shocked,” Eisendrath teases. “He’ll wonder going forward, ‘How did this happen? Did it happen on accident or with someone who is trying to get me?’”

That’s a discussion he’ll have with Liz, who visits Red in prison. She obviously knows he’s not the real Raymond Reddington, as she learned in the season 5 finale, but she’s also unsure of what her next steps should be. “Not only is she trying desperately to unravel the truth of who this man is and why he entered her life and why he chose her, but she’s also having to try to be present in a very caring way, because he doesn’t know that she knows the truth,” Bokenkamp explains. “It makes for some really interesting and complex situations to put her in. She’s sort of feigning concern for him while still trying to work the mystery and unravel a greater sort of truth.”

Below, EW can share three exclusive photos from the upcoming season:



The Blacklist returns for a two-part, two-night premiere starting Thursday, Jan. 3, at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.

Khloe Kardashian Flaunts Major Under Boob While Kissing True In Hot New Vacation Pic

Hot mama alert! Khloe Kardashian proved, yet again, that she’s one of the most stunning mothers in the game with this cute vacation pic starring herself and baby True.

Khloe Kardashian‘s Instagram page is basically a True Thompson fan account now, but the mom-of-one is still sneaking in a sexy pic here and there. Her latest pic is dedicated to her love and adoration for the “moon of her life,” her baby girl, but if you look closer, there’s a sexy secret. As Khloe lifts True into the air for a kiss, her cropped t-shirt rides off, showing off major under boob. That’s right; she’s not wearing anything underneath her sheer, white tee. Damn!

Her fans raved over her gorgeous photo, which showed off her remarkably flat abs and tiny waist. Can you believe this woman had a baby less than a year ago? “Ok I was looking at lovely True but I was struck by your amazing STOMACH,” one fan commented, saying what everyone was pretty much thinking. “@khloekardashian waist is SNATCHED,” commented another. One fan joked about all the haters saying that Khloe only posted the pic to show off her bod, writing, “Here’s a picture of me and my mom and my moms underboob.” So good!

Her adorable sweep of True photos comes days after a new report surfaced claiming that Khloe and Tristan Thompson were “actively” trying for baby #2 just seven months after welcoming their daughter into the world. “[Khloe] isn’t pregnant yet, but they are actively trying,” a source recently told Us Weekly. “Khloe loves being a mom. She wants True to have a sibling.” Considering that Khloe and Tristan make such cute kids, we can see why they’d want another!

Dani Dyer’s shock change of heart as she deletes post confirming split with Jack

Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham’s fans have barely digested the shock news that the Love Island winners are no more, when the former appears to have had a bizarre change of heart.

22-year-old Dani had originally confirmed rumours that she and boyfriend Jack had parted ways six months after getting together in a candid message.

She took to Instagram on Thursday night to say they’d simply realised they weren’t meant to last in the ‘long-term.’

But just hours after making revelation, Dani decided to take down the post from her social media.


And her swift move did not go unnoticed by eagle eyed fans.

"So if Jack and Dani have really split then why did she delete her post?" asked one.

"Right it’s annoying me now, why would Dani post on Instagram that her and Jack are over then delete it an hour later?" pondered another.

The Instagram Story posts delete automatically after 24 hours, but Dani took the post down around an hour after setting it live.

Interestingly, former pen salesman Jack has yet to speak out to clarify Dani’s statement about the break-up.

He hasn’t cropped on social media since hours before Dani dropped the bombshell.

The shock news came just six months after they initially got together on ITV2’s Love Island this summer.

They were paired up at the very first coupling and were the unanimous winners at the live final in August.

But six months down the line Dani told fans on Instagram they were no more after months of rumours.

She said: "Jack & I have sadly decided to part ways. It’s been an incredible 6 months, and we will always have a place in our hearts for each other, but sadly we’ve come to the realisation that it’s not meant to be long term.

"We both plan to stay friends. I hope you’ll all understand. Love Dani x"

How Man Utd could line-up under Mauricio Pochettino, should he replace Jose Mourinho

The Special One, 55, is now the bookies' favourite to be the next Premier League sacking victim.


Amidst all the speculation over who would replace Mourinho at Old Trafford, one name keeps popping up: Mauricio Pochettino.

The Tottenham boss has been a target for United for years – with Real Madrid also intrigued.

Now United are preparing to make their official move, having been told it will cost £40million to land Pochettino.

But, there's certainly plenty of signs to suggest Poch could be the perfect man to take over the reins at Old Trafford.


After all, United have a squad full of attacking, young players – two of Poch's strongest areas.

Using his nous for developing youth and setting up his team in a non-Jose way – plus a few Spurs buys – here's how United could look under Poch.

GOALKEEPER

David De Gea

DESPITE having his one-year contract extension triggered, De Gea's future still looks uncertain.

United chiefs opted to extend his stay at Old Trafford in the hope he may change his mind and stay – as well as ensure clubs can't snap him up for free.

Under new leadership, De Gea could easily be talked into staying – especially with partner Edurne keen to stay in Manchester.

DEFENCE

Diogo Dalot, Eric Bailly, Toby Alderweireld, Luke Shaw

FOR years United have toyed with a borderline-offensive back-four made of makeshift wingers and in recent cases even out-and-out midfielders.

However, in Dalot – now back from injury – United appear to have a real gem of a full-back, with Mourinho saying even Gary Neville would be proud.

That combined with a resurgent Shaw gives two quality full-backs – both with superb, long-term potential.

Alderweireld has been keen on a culture change for a while too, but despite not playing so much now is still a favourite of Pochettino's.

Should the Belgian be given a new lease of life in a fresh start, he could be the answer to United's centre-back woes.

Alderweireld would work well alongside Bailly – when fully fit – in what would look like a very strong back-four.

MIDFIELD

Fred, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard

MOURINHO recently claimed Fred is only being benched lately as he can't trust his defence to make up for his dynamic, forward-thinking approach.

In a Pochettino-led team, the Brazilian would be the perfect link between defence and attack with his box-to-box style.

Fred, combined with the attack-minded Pogba and Lingard, would be a very dangerous midfield – but certainly a risk Poch would consider.

The likes of Matic and Fellaini on the bench would allow them to shore things up if needed, too…

FORWARDS

Marcus Rashford, Harry Kane, Anthony Martial

IT'S no secret Lukaku has been a big-money flop at Old Trafford. But you know who isn't a flop… Kane.

It would be a big ask for Daniel Levy to part with his star striker, but Pochettino is the main reason Kane is the player he is now.

The England star would certainly consider following the Argentine chief to Old Trafford if Ed Woodward gave him control of the chequebook.

Meanwhile, a tandem of Martial and Rashford flanking him has the potential to be devastating.

It's no secret the pair aren't in the mould of a Mourinho team – but they certainly are Pochettino players.

Hilary Duff Says Her Son Luca Is An ‘Amazing’ Brother To Her Newborn Daughter

Hilary Duff’s newborn daughter, Banks Violet, has already captured the heart of Duff’s 6-year-old son, Luca. The actress revealed on Thursday that, despite only being in the family for two months, Luca treats Banks as if “she’s always been there,” Entertainment Tonight shared.

Duff spoke with ET’s Katie Krause at Love Leo’s Rescue 1st Annual Cocktails for a Cause Fundraiser on Thursday, where she spilled all the details about her happy little family. The mother of two welcomed baby Banks to the family on October 25 with boyfriend Matthew Koma. Luca, whom Duff shares with her ex-husband Mike Comrie, has reportedly shown nothing but love for the child so far, despite Duff’s concerns that he would feel forgotten.

“Obviously a newborn needs their mom the most and when I start to feel bad that she consumes most of my time, I look at him and he’s totally fine,” the actress shared.

Duff added that Luca is incredibly affectionate towards Banks, always willing to hold her and keep an eye on her. The 6-year-old is often the one to alert Duff when Banks is about to cry.

Koma, whom Duff began dating in January of last year, has also been wonderful with Banks, Duff said.

“He’s a really good dad and he’s patient with her,” the Younger star admitted.

The happy family also own four dogs, which Duff admitted is due to the fact that she’s a huge dog lover.

Like most parents, Duff has been documenting Banks’ adorable milestones on social media for all to see. On Wednesday, the former Disney Channel star shared a video to Instagram Stories of herself with Banks smiling in her arms, something the baby has never done before, according to OK! Magazine.

“Do you know how to smile now?” the mother asked Banks.

Duff also often gives fans an inside look into the family’s daily activities. Earlier this week, Duff and Koma brought the children along to shop for a Christmas tree. Banks unfortunately screamed the entire time, Duff said in the caption of a family photo during the outing.

The actress revealed that she loves being a new mother again, although it is plenty of work. Duff said that she often finds herself running from one place to the next, picking up Luca for an after-school activity and then running home to cook dinner while also nursing Banks. But, Duff also gracefully admitted that she wouldn’t have it any other way.

“It’s insane and amazing at the same time and you just do it. You just figure out a way to do it,” Duff said.

What is Graham Norton's BBC salary, how old is the chat show legend and is he married?

The Irishman is one of the highest paid talents working on the BBC and one of it's biggest stars.

Who is Graham Norton, how old is he and what is his background?

Graham Norton – real name Graham Walker – was born on April 4, 1963, in Dublin, Ireland and grew up in Bandon, County Cork – he is 55.

After studying French and English at University College Cork for two years in the 80s, he dropped out and moved to London to attend the Central School of Speech and Drama.

He joined the actor's union Equity and took his great-grandmother's maiden name, Norton, as his stage name because there was already an actor called Graham Walker.

The Irish telly host has won five Bafta TV Awards for The Graham Norton Show, which airs on Friday nights on BBC One.

He also presents a radio show on BBC Radio 2 and is the commentator for the Eurovision Song Contest.

How did Graham make it in showbiz?

He got his first break as a regular comedian/panellist on the BBC Radio 4 show Loose Ends in the early 1990s.

But he rose to fame on TV after winning an award for being a stand-in host on a Channel 5 late-night talk show hosted by Jack Docherty.

He then presented a quiz show called Bring Me the Head of Light Entertainment on Channel 5 in 1995 and co-hosted the late-night quiz show Carnal Knowledge on ITV with Maria McErlane the following year.

One of his most notable TV appearances was playing father Noel Furlong in three episodes of iconic Channel 4 show Father Ted.

He then moved to Channel 4 where he fronted chat shows including So Graham Norton and V Graham Norton before moving to the BBC in 2005.

After hosting a multitude of different shows like How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria? and When Will I Be Famous? he landed The Graham Norton Show on BBC Two in February 2007.

In 2009, the show moved to BBC One after Friday Night with Jonathan Ross was cancelled.

How much does Graham earn and does he sell wine?

Graham has wealth of £20 million.

On July 11, 2018, it was revealed in 2017/2018 that he earned £600,000-£609,999 for his work with the BBC.

However, this is not believed to include any fees for his chat show as he paid via a separate production company.

In 2015, he was paid £2.52million  in “presenter fees, production fees and royalties” from production company So Television.

The production company was sold to ITV in 2012 in a £17million deal and lists Norton as a creditor.

Since 2014, Graham has also earned a pretty penny by selling his own wine under the brand name GN.

Is Graham married?

Graham is currently single and has never been married.

He split from music marketing consultant Andrew Smith in the summer of 2015.

Graham dated Scott Michaels for five years until 2000 and was in a relationship with Trevor Patterson from 2010 to 2013.

When was he attacked?

In 1988, Graham – who was studying at the Central School of Speech and Drama – was mugged, beaten up and stabbed by two men as he walked towards Queen's Park in London.

He almost died after the attack, which resulted in him losing half his blood and left him in hospital for two and a half weeks.

Speaking to the Evening Standard about the incident, he said: "I nearly died, but in a way being mugged liberated me. Before, being cast in the best role in drama school was all that mattered. After that, well, it all seemed a bit silly really."

Tamara Ecclestone: I WOULD pose topless again… but no-one wants to see my saggy breastfeeding boobs

The 34-year-old Formula One heiress, who graced the cover of Playboy in 2013, nursed daughter Sophia for four-and-a-half years until she weaned her off over the summer.

Speaking exclusively to Fabulous Online the businesswoman, who runs companies Glow Beauty and Fifi & Friends, said: “I’ve done Playboy and I don’t think I would pose nude again.

“I would pose topless and it would be interesting to do something like that now post-breastfeeding because my boobs look a lot different.

“I don’t think because you’re a mum you should be pigeon-holed as ‘just a mum’ so you can’t do something slightly sexy anymore.

“I actually haven’t been asked, no one wants to see my saggy breastfeeding boobs clearly!”



Tamara, who married business consultant Jay Rutland, 37, a former stock broker, in 2013, also didn't rule out surgery in the future.

She told us: “I’d never say never to anything. I’m 34 now and if in five, 10, 15 years I want to do something I’m definitely not against it.

I would pose topless and it would be interesting to do something like that now post-breastfeeding because my boobs look a lot different

“But if you start too early then by the time you’re 60 you have 30 years of filler in your face, and it can start to look like a lot.

“So I’d like to avoid it for as long as possible, but when I feel really desperate then I’ll do it.”

The socialite and former party girl, who was once Britain's answer to the Hiltons with sister Petra, 29, was in no hurry to snap back to her pre-baby body after having Sofia, also known as Fifi.

She works out in her private basement gym every morning after dropping her daughter off at school, but says her former life of juice fasts and diets couldn’t be further from her mind.

Tamara added: “Now that I have a daughter I would never dream of talking about diets or the fat word or saying ‘I can’t eat that’.

“I want her to grow up with a positive body image and know her self-worth is not based on how much she weighs or what she looks like.”

We were in a helicopter once and Jay put it on his Instagram and someone said ‘I hope you crash and die’

Tamara, whose Former One mogul dad Bernie Ecclestone is worth an estimated £2.5 billion, has faced her fair share of criticism from online trolls over the years – but she insists it doesn’t bother her.

She said: “I actually don’t care, I find it really amusing, but Jay takes it really personally if it’s about me or Fifi.

“I’m like, ‘Don’t reply to these people, they’re such losers, what the hell are you doing?’

“And he’s like, ‘No I’m not going to have them say that about you or Fifi’. He doesn’t care if they criticise him.

A truly magical night last night 🎇

A post shared by Tamara Ecclestone Rutland (@tamaraecclestoneofficial) on

“I never get drawn into it, but I think people who say mean things about kids, that’s a really sick thing.

“We were in a helicopter once and Jay put it on his Instagram and someone said, ‘I hope you crash and die’.

“Fifi was in the helicopter with us and that was really disgusting that anyone’s mind works in that way.

“Jay got them taken off Instagram – I think it is outrageous that anyone could be that mean.

“That’s slightly worse than saying, ‘you look fat in your dress’ or ‘hate your nails’.”

Tamara previously revealed sleeping with Fifi doesn’t hurt her love life because ‘I don’t need a bed for sex’ – as she invited us into her plush Kensington mansion.

Tamara’s baby and kid care line Fifi & Friends is available here and her haircare line Show Beauty can be purchased here.
