    Being catapulted into public life and national headlines has brought Democratic Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a world of hate, she told GQ in a cover story published on Wednesday. The fiery socialist gets the full glossy treatment, posing for pictures on the steps of the U.S. Capitol in a glamorous black gown. But she uses the interview to reveal that she drives the short distance to Congress ever since a mob of Trump supporters stormed the building, and to describe the misogyny facing successful women of color. Such is the hatred, she said, that she even fears making plans for the future. 'I hold two contradictory things [in mind] at the same time. One is just the relentless belief that anything is possible,' said Ocasio-Cortez, 32. 'But at the same time, my experience here has given me a front-row seat to how deeply and unconsciously, as well as consciously, so many people in this country hate women. 'And they hate women of color. 'People ask me questions about the future. And realistically, I can't even tell you if I'm going to...
    Aaron Carter has spoken out against being portrayed as a washed-up drug addict despite turning his life around for the better and marking five years sober.  The former teen heartthrob, 34, revealed his fury about his problematic public image in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, saying he believes his recovery has been ignored and that he should no longer be viewed as a 'train wreck'. The singer also shared revelations about his complicated relationship with his family, including his older brother, former Backstreet Boys star Nick, 42, and the mother of his young son.  Carter found fame as a child star in the late 1990s and early 2000s, but his transition into adolescence and adulthood saw him fall into a 'huffing' addiction and be hit with a $7.8million tax bill that left him broke. But the one-time star said he is now in a much better place and is currently making a musical comeback with his tour that is generating 'millions of dollars.'  'I realized that I was killing myself and everything was being destroyed around me from it,' Carter told...
    For some couples, a break up or divorce will be followed by years of resentment with each party swearing never to see the others again. But others have managed to stay friends after their split.  After officialising their divorce, media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, 91 and model Jerry Hall, 65, stressed they had settled their break-up agreement and 'remain good friends' in spite of their separation.  This amicable split is very different from other celebrities, like Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde, who are embroiled in a custody battle, or Kevin Federline and Britney Spears, who are still washing their dirty laundry public via Instagram posts, 16 years after their divorce.  Even couples who initially have had relatively hush-hush splits, like Brangelina, can't escape petty arguments over their vineyard and property.  So is it ever possible to be friends with an ex? And is so, what is the secret ingredient to these post-divorce friendship?  Dating expert Tina Wilson told FEMAIL that age and sharing children are two factors that could make it easier to be friends with your ex.  'There are some...

    A mystified Ted Cruz asked Friday how Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson pulls so many 'hot women' - before expressing his own desire for the comedian's former flame Kate Beckinsale.    'How come that dude gets all of these, like, hot women?' the senator asked on his podcast, Verdict With Ted Cruz, responding to a viewer question concerning 'toxic femininity,' which saw cohost Michael Knowles bring up Kim Kardashian.

Over time they will drain out more and more of you until there is nothing left, and you are physically, emotionally and mentally spent.  In a relationship, the drain doesn’t like to expend energy on anyone other than themselves, so they show very little interest in their partner’s life or in engaging or communicating in general. The drain will make little effort, and when they do, it’s usually because they want their partner...
    Prince Harry 'can't stand' the Duchess of Cornwall and might deepen his rift with the royal family by 'going after' her and Prince Charles in his upcoming memoirs, Princess Diana's biographer has claimed.  Speaking to the Telegraph Magazine ahead of the release of her new book, The Palace Papers, Tina Brown, 68, said the Duke of Sussex, 37, never made his peace with Prince Charles and Camilla's relationship, and does not want Camilla to become Queen.  She added Prince Charles' estranged son, who resides in California with his wife Meghan Markle, 40 and their children, Archie and Lilibet, is likely to voice his frustration in his memoirs, which are set to be published later this year.   Speaking to the Telegraph Magazine ahead of the release of her new royal book, The Palace Papers, Tina Brown, 68, said the Duke of Sussex, 37, never made his peace with Prince Charles and Camilla's relationship, and does not want Camilla to become Queen (pictured together with Meghan Markle on 22 May 2018) Brown, who penned the Diana Chronicles in 2006, said: 'William was disgusted...
    Spain's former king Juan Carlos I does not have Crown Immunity and can be taken to court to face claims he sent Spanish agents to Britain to harass and threaten his former lover, a judge ruled today. The 84-year-old former head of state's lawyers had argued at the High Court last December that English courts have no jurisdiction to hear a case brought by Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn, a wealthy businesswoman based in London. The Dane, 58, is seeking civil personal injury damages, alleging she was threatened, had her overseas properties broken into and was spied on after their relationship turned sour. His lawyers in turn argued that he was immune from the jurisdiction of the English courts, and any allegations had to be brought before Spain's Supreme Court. But judge Matthew Nicklin disagreed, stating that 'whatever special status the defendant retained under the law and constitution of Spain, he was no longer a 'sovereign' or 'head of state' so as to entitle him to personal immunity'. The former King of Spain, Juan Carlos, has failed in his bid to plead...

    When my marriage broke down, I laid the blame squarely at my husband’s door. After all, he was the one who walked away without leaving so much as a forwarding address. Three years on, I realise the end of a relationship is more complex than that — and, ultimately, it’s not about blame. (Admittedly, it took much reflection and vat-loads of medicinal rosé to reach this point.) Yes, his behaviour was more reprehensible than mine, but my post-marriage journey of self-discovery led to some painful truths about myself (not least that I’m an ugly crier). I realised there was a whole host of things I could — and perhaps should — have done differently. I don’t know for certain if these changes could have saved our marriage but they would have given us more of a chance.

    Two female best friends, who describe each other as 'soulmates,' have revealed what it's like to live in a 'platonic life partnership' - which sees them both dating other people while living together like a married couple. April Lee and Renee Wong, both 24 - who are originally from Singapore but now live together in Los Angeles, California - became best friends at a young age, and right away, they felt like their 'connection was special.' The ladies have been close for more than a decade now - taking a 'front row seat' for each other's 'pivotal coming-of-age moments,' including 'first boyfriends, early career moves, and all the growing pains of becoming young adults.' Last year, they decided that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together - as best friends, not as lovers - and became 'platonic life partners.' That means they are not romantically involved and do not have sex - but said they are committed to 'building a future' together since they 'consistently help each other become the best version of themselves.' They currently share...

We've always been told to interpret that as a clear sign you obviously like this person. 1Lauren said feeling butterflies after the third date is a BAD signCredit: tiktok @coachlaurenzoeller Well according to dating coach Lauren Zoeller, it's not always so clear-cut. Sharing the dating advice in a TikTok video, the relationship expert said it's perfectly normal to feel butterflies ahead of your first or second date.

    MAINTAINING a successful relationship takes a lot of effort. While there is no secret formula for what makes a relationship work, there are some tried and true tips that can help. 3Relationships often involve fights, difficult conversations, and trying changesCredit: TikTok/mindful_tom [email protected]_Tom has a useful tip for those looking to stop the incessant argumentsCredit: Getty One relationship expert and psychology student, who goes by @Minful_Tom on TikTok, shared his practiced wisdom for couples dealing with hardships. “Some years back,” he began, “my wife and I got into the habit of asking each other ‘Do you want comfort or solutions?’ when the other was having a bad time.” Tom continued: “That one sentence can save us from an argument 9/10 times.” Responding to a comment asking him to elaborate on the “comfort” part, Tom explained: “Comfort could be being present with your partner and listening to their feelings/problems empathetically instead of finding a solution for them.” It is a useful trick. Sometimes, all we want is a sympathetic ear or a shoulder to cry on—and any strategic planning from our partner...

    (CNN)For as much controversy as actor Ben Affleck stirred when talking about his marriage and addiction, he also shined a light on important conversations for addicts and their loved ones, an expert said.Marital problems and addiction have a "chicken and egg" relationship, said psychologist John F. Kelly, Harvard Medical School professor of psychiatry and director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Recovery Research Institute. The takeaway from Affleck and Garner's story should not be placing blame, said Kelly, but rather the importance of coping strategies in avoiding addictive behaviors and maintaining healthy relationships. Ben Affleck says negative reaction to Stern interview hurts my feelingsAffleck spoke to Howard Stern this week about how his marriage to Jennifer Garner contributed to his alcoholism, saying if they hadn't split in 2015, "I'd probably still be drinking.""It's part of why I started drinking," Affleck told Stern. "Because I was trapped."As his comments went viral, some people saw Affleck as placing blame on Garner for his addiction. Read More"It's not true. I don't believe that.

    We were in a cafe a few days ago, my friend and I, when our laughter made a nearby group of teenagers turn around. ‘Ugh,’ I heard one of them whisper. ‘They’re talking about sex. At their age!’ Her expression of pained disgust left us, both sixtysomethings, in no doubt about her feelings on the subject. Our discussion, a post-mortem of my friend’s ‘night before’, had ventured into territory assumed to belong exclusively in a world inhabited by the young and beautiful. A world off limits to anyone of my advanced age. However, like it or not, a recent survey found that the optimal age for sex among single women is 66. Although, in my experience, I’d say the best sex is to be found within a long and trusting relationship whatever your age, a healthy sex drive in your 60s is really not unusual. And whatever your circumstances, I think sex at this age is absolutely great. I speak as someone who met her beloved husband — Bob, the love of my life — when I was 19. And,...
    A SELF-dubbed “Red Flag CEO” is sharing her tips on how to tell if your mother is a narcissist.

The narcissism expert explained that when you bring a problem up to your mom and she starts talking about herself, it’s likely a bad sign.  “Inevitably then, as she’s talking about herself [and] that she had gone through that as well, somehow she will come out on top [and express] that she handled it better than you would have,” Anastasia stated. “And instead of getting support, which is what you were looking for, what you end up getting is criticism,” she continued. “You’re going to notice that with narcissistic people, there is tremendous amounts of criticism....

    Gwyneth Paltrow and Jada Pinkett Smith talked about how bad pornography can be for women, and Smith said it has “really messed us up.” “I’m supposed to be there for every whim, every pleasure, it’s like, ‘woah, woah, woah,'” the 50-year-old host shared during a sneak peek at her “Red Table Talk” show with guest Paltrow, Entertainment Tonight reported Tuesday.

Consuelos replied to the photo by commenting "Okay" with several fire and heart emojis.  Back in February, when Consuelos posted for their youngest son's 18th birthday, Ripa wrote, "You know what?

    My mother always soothes: ‘Don’t worry, it’ll happen when you least expect it,’ whenever I fret about not finding love. But after 20 years, she may as well say, ‘Abandon all hope’ because I gave up expecting it long ago. Luckily, I’ve made a new friend called Nanaya who says I’m going to meet someone special in a year’s time, and she’s going to help me do it. But Nanaya isn’t a new girlfriend who knows a bar full of tall, dark strangers or a clairvoyant preying on my hopes and fears — she’s the algorithm on a website built by a Nasa scientist to assess chances of finding a relationship. A bit like Apple’s virtual assistant Siri for singles, you ask her: ‘Will I ever find The One?’ And she doesn’t say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ but estimates when and how. Rashied Amini, a systems engineer at Nasa, launched Nanaya in the U.S in 2015, to asses the chances of finding a relationship.

    Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden plans to address the strained US-Russia diplomatic relationship when he meets President Vladimir Putin next week with the hope that the two leaders can agree to send their ambassadors back to Washington and Moscow after months with no senior diplomat being present in either country, according to three sources familiar with the plans. Russia's ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov was recalled from Washington about three months ago after Biden called Putin a killer and US Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan left Moscow almost two months ago after Russia suggested he return to Washington for consultations. Not having an ambassador in either country has made conducting basic diplomacy even more difficult at a time when relations are already severely strained.Their departures signaled a new low point in an already tense relationship, and their return appears to be the only modest deliverable that the Biden administration is eyeing out of the high-stakes summit. The aspiration comes as the Biden administration has tempered expectations that the US and Russia would come away from the meeting with any groundbreaking...
    Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has stuck the knife into Bill Gates after the founder's 'inappropriate' relationship with a female employee came to light, as he insisted 'the power dynamic in the workplace is not something that can be abused.' Nadella appeared to take aim at the founder as he told CNBC on Friday that the company is 'very different' today to how it was in 2000. That year, Gates stepped down as CEO, 25 years after he founded the company. It emerged this week that, the same year, Gates embarked on an 'inappropriate' sexual relationship with a female staff member, while he was married to Melinda.  The affair stayed a secret until 2019 and Gates resigned from his position on the board in early 2020 while an internal investigation into the relationship was still ongoing. Gates, 65, has been rocked by a series of allegations ever since he and Melinda, 56, announced their divorce earlier this month. His behavior at Microsoft has come under closer scrutiny with claims from two female employees that he asked them out on dates and questions around the...
    Moscow — U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov were set to face off late Wednesday in the first high-level meeting between Russian and American officials under the Biden administration. They will meet as relations between the two rival powers hover near Cold War-lows. "It would be our preference to have a more stable and more predictable relationship with Russia," Blinken said the day before the meeting. "If these are stable and predictable sanctions, then it's probably not what we need, and we won't be judging the U.S. calls to normalize relations by their words," Lavrov responded a few hours later in Moscow, reiterating a common Russian complaint that the U.S. relies too heavily on economic punishment for its foreign policy. Putin critic Navalny appears in court 01:29 The two senior diplomats have a long list of hurdles to address, including Russia's treatment of jailed opposition figure Alexey Navalny, recent saber-rattling near the Ukrainian border and sanctions that Washington hit Russia with recently over alleged interference in U.S. elections and hacking attacks on American...
    There’s the increasing possibility that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have rekindled the love affair that made them “Bennifer” and one of the most talked-about, joked-about and “over-exposed” celebrity couples of the 21st century. Affleck, 48, and Lopez, 51, were photographed by paparazzi on a recent getaway to Montana, where Affleck has a home but where TMZ reported they stayed at the same resort. A week earlier, Affleck and Lopez were spotted enjoying time together at her Los Angeles home. A source close to the couple suggested to People that they are more than exes spending time together as platonic friends. “(Jennifer) spent several days with Ben out of town,” the source said. “They have a strong connection. It’s all been quick and intense, but Jennifer is happy.” While Lopez is “happy,” the specter of “Bennifer 2.0” raises all sorts of questions about Affleck’s intentions, particularly with regard to his career. With her various boyfriends, particularly during her four-year relationship with Alex Rodriguez, Lopez has shown she has the facility for being one-half of a celebrity couple that’s constantly promoting...
    What would make the current shortlist for the title of World's Most Ludicrously Inappropriate Book? Donald Trump's Guide to Diplomacy? The Art of Protecting One's Privacy by the Kardashian Sisters? Why Marriage is for Keeps by Bill and Melinda Gates? These would all be good contenders were it not for the announcement this afternoon that Meghan Markle has written a book called 'The Bench' about the very special bond between father and child. Sorry, WHAT? Notwithstanding Ms Markle's seemingly unlimited thirst for committing attention-seeking acts of gargantuan hypocrisy, this seemed beyond parody. But it was real. I laughed out loud when the news broke via her ecstatic publishers, and even louder when I read the accompanying gush-laden statements. Ms Markle proudly informed us that her debut literary tome captures 'the warmth, joy and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life.' She added: 'This representation was particularly important to me ... and I worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens. My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no...
    Steve Harvey once said he has no female friends because he's "incapable" of being friends with them. Byron Cohen/Getty Images Steve Harvey once said he has no female friends because he is "incapable" of that. In a 2010 CNN interview, Harvey said most men can't be friends with women they're attracted to. The clip resurfaced on TikTok in March and went viral on Twitter last weekend. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Steve Harvey once said that he's "incapable" of having a platonic friendly relationship with women, adding that "99.9%" of men feel that way about women they're attracted to.  In the clip from a 2010 interview, which appears to have first resurfaced when TikTok user @helenerison posted it in March and circulated further when it was reshared to Twitter last weekend, the "Family Feud" host is seen weighing in on purely platonic friendships between men and women during an appearance on the CNN show "Face to Face."  "All of my friends are men. I don't have female friends. I'm incapable of that," Harvey says in the...
    Alex Rodriguez isn’t ready to give up on his relationship with Jennifer Lopez. The two began dating in 2017, became engaged in 2019 and broke up earlier this year not long after reports surfaced indicating trouble in paradise. In March, the two announced that they were "working through some things," and though they broke up, it seems Rodriguez, 45, is willing to keep working. "A-Rod will not give up on his and J. Lo’s relationship," a source recently told Us Weekly. "He is willing to do anything to make it work." JENNIFER LOPEZ AND ALEX RODRIGUEZ SPOTTED OUT TO DINNER The pair – who said they’d remain friends and business partners – were spotted out at dinner together just days ago at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles, where they reportedly had their first date.

(Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP) "ARod flew to L.A. on Thursday night to see her," the source told Us. "JLo still doesn’t trust A-Rod all the way. She’s very...
    Hong Kong (CNN)The bipolar nature of the current US-China relationship is on full display this week, as envoys from Washington land in both Taipei and Shanghai, prompting Beijing to issue angry rebukes and hopes for greater engagement respectively. John Kerry, the United States Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, has begun three days of meetings with his Chinese counterparts ahead of a leaders' summit on the environment being held by President Joe Biden later this month. As the world's worst polluters, action by the US and China is vital to staving off climate disaster, and this has been seen as a key area where there is room for cooperation and joint-leadership between the two superpowers. Last year, Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged China would achieve net zero emissions by 2060, with emissions peaking before 2030, though this week one climate group warned that to meet such ambitious targets, China must shut down nearly 600 of its coal-fired power plants in the next 10 years. Kerry will meet with Xie Zhenhua, China's special envoy for climate change affairs, for talks this week,...
    Superb Images/Getty Images Playfulness among couples can lead to less conflict, trust, and long-lasting relationships.  Playing sports, joking, and watching a comedy with your partner are all examples of playfulness.  You should incorporate playfulness into your relationships, experts say, but start small.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Joking with your partner may be the key to a long relationship, a new study suggests.  In the study, researchers at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg in Germany reviewed existing research on playfulness among couples, then created a list of benefits, including positive emotions and easing of tension. These effects lead to satisfaction, low conflict, and sex — which can create a lasting relationship.  Playfulness comes in many forms, like playing a sport or joking and laughing with your partner. Overall, it creates a sense of lightness, according to Rachel Sussman, a relationship expert who was not involved in the study.  "Playful behaviors such as surprising the partner, retelling and reenacting joint experiences with the partner, or jointly forming new experiences often contribute to the happiness and longevity of...

    SINGLETONS! There is a simple rule if you want to kick off a date the right way: Take care of your hygiene and rock up presentable. That is it. The end. Full stop. Thank you for coming to my TED talk. 4Singleton Jana Hocking has been on a fair few first dates in her lifeCredit: jana_hocking/Instagram Now listen, I’m sure you are all thinking “Well duh Fred!” (Do people still say that or is it a term that was best kept in the ‘90s?!) but I’m serious! As someone who has been on a jolly many dates, I can safely say that the first 5 minutes of a date sets the tone for whether it will be successful or meh. We judge, all of us do. Within the first greeting I’ve clocked clothes, shoes, teeth, odour and hair style. If I see a hint of greasy hair, a dirty thong, or a stench of BO I’m already looking for the nearest exit. It says that either 1. You’re not that invested in the date and just chucked on any...
    A WOMAN has married her best friend so that they can raise their kids together - but says their relationship is completely platonic. TikTok user Jay Guerico tied the knot with BFF Krystal, but the pair have never even kissed. 5Jay Guerico married her best friend Krystal so that they could raise kids togetherCredit: @thelovelyjaybird/TikTok Jay shared the story of her unconventional relationship with her followers in response to a video prompt asking "What are some of the misconceptions that people have about you and your spouse's relationship?"

    Dear Quentin, My boyfriend of 10 years and I became acquainted because I was his tenant. He is 25 years my senior. I agreed to continue to pay rent because he told me that I would get the house when he died. To be fair, I also was not going to be able to move because the rents in my area began to skyrocket, and as a young single mother I wanted to work part-time so that I could care for my (then) young son. In the years that followed, we started two businesses together using the property that he owns. One was a short-term rental in a unit of the duplex house that we live in, and the other was a theater. Both were very popular. However, I did a lot of unpaid labor to get the businesses started as well as day to day operations. I did make some money managing the rental and received tips from working the bar at the theater, but my boyfriend kept the rest of the money. “ ‘He began taking part...
    A New York assemblyman has claimed that he was threatened by Governor Andrew Cuomo and told 'I can destroy you' if he did not issue a positive statement regarding the nursing home cover-up scandal. Democratic Assemblyman Ron Kim claimed he received an angry phone call from Cuomo on Thursday after he was quoted in a New York Post article that revealed new details about how the governor's administration held back the true numbers on nursing home deaths from COVID-19. Kim alleges that Cuomo shouted at him for ten minutes and asked him 'are you an honorable man?' before the governor added that he 'hadn't seen his wrath and anger' before. Cuomo appeared to make good on his alleged threat on Wednesday as he criticized Kim during a press briefing and claimed that he and the assembly member had a 'long and hostile relationship'. Democratic Assemblyman Ron Kim (pictured) claims he was threatened by NY Governor Andrew Cuomo in a phonecall last week over the nursing home cover-up scandal Cuomo said in a briefing Wedneday that he and Kim...

    I'M sitting awake in bed, sobbing in lingerie I just maxed my credit card out on. “I said I was tired. Why are you making such a big deal out of this?!” my boyfriend scowls, straining his eyes open. 6Sexpert Nadia Bokody has revealed exactly how much sex you should be having with your other half Credit: nadiabokody / Instagram We’re having that fight again. The one where I tell him we’re not having enough sex. It’s an argument most couples will have at some point in their relationship. In fact, according to research published in The Journal Of Sex & Marital Therapy, people don’t just quarrel over sex in their relationships – 47 per cent of divorcees site a lack of it as the reason for calling it quits. It’s ironic really, considering just how thorough most of us are at vetting our prospective partners on everything from money to career and views on child-rearing. “He wants kids and has a stable job. We’re completely on the same page,” a girlfriend who’d recently started dating a guy she met on Hinge, cooed...

    The definition of monogamy is “family regime that does not admit the plurality of spouses”. But even this method has its variations. For example, there is not consensual monogamy. What is it about? As the BBC reports, consensual non-monogamy (CNM) is a regime that allows both spouses of a couple to have the freedom to explore relationships with other people. The varieties range from the so-called polyamory to the ‘open relationships’. But the key is in the concept of ‘consensual’, that is, both parties must establish an agreement on the limits that can be reached. “If we think of all the people who have a relationship, about 5% it would be defined as CNM, “Amy Muise, assistant professor of psychology at York University in Toronto, Canada, tells the BBC. But the data increases if we take into account those who have put it into practice: “If we take life experience, 21% of people have been non-monogamous at some point, “says Muise. “I wouldn’t be surprised if it was even more common,” he adds. Amy Moors, assistant professor of psychology...
    Samantha Lee/Insider Harassment is never OK, and you shouldn't have to deal with what your ex is putting you through. At the same time, setting boundaries and letting him know there are legal consequences in the form of a restraining order could help. You should also take this time to find loved ones who support you and are willing to listen in a judgment-free way. Those people may not be your own family.
