“Extreme racism”: TV host’s appalling comments about Serena Williams

<p>A Romanian TV host has received heavy criticism after a shocking racial slur aimed at Serena Williams was made on air. </p> <p>Radu Branciu said on his evening show during the US Open he found Serena Williams to “look exactly like one of those monkeys at the zoo with the red asses”. </p> <p>“If monkeys wore trousers, they’d look exactly like Serena Williams does on the court,” he said.</p> <p>The National Council for Combating Discrimination in Bucharest has condemned Banciu’s comments.</p> <p>“The governing board shows that slavery of people of colour was based, among other things, on their comparison with monkeys,” a press release said.</p> <p>“As a result, such statements express a form of extreme racism.”</p> <p>Banciu was fined $2,700 however it doesn’t seem like the TV host will lose his job. </p> <p>This isn’t the first time Serena has faced racism at the hands of the media. </p> <p>The<span> </span><em>Herald Sun<span> </span></em>gained criticism in Australia and the U.S after the infamous US Open final in 2018 with a cartoon depiction of Serena which many labelled inappropriate and racist. </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"> <p dir="ltr">Australia's media watchdog finds cartoon of <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/SerenaWilliams?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#SerenaWilliams</a> did not breach standards. <a href="https://t.co/a6BgIWFLWB">https://t.co/a6BgIWFLWB</a> <a href="https://t.co/CpWTVTc87Y">pic.twitter.com/CpWTVTc87Y</a></p> — ABC Grandstand (@abcgrandstand) <a href="https://twitter.com/abcgrandstand/status/1099806603681751040?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">February 24, 2019</a></blockquote> <p>However, the cartoon was deemed by the Australian media watchdog in a “highly animated tantrum”. </p> <p>"Specifically, concern was expressed that the cartoon depicted Ms Williams with large lips, a broad flat nose, a wild afro-styled ponytail hairstyle different to that worn by Ms Williams during the match, and positioned in an ape-like pose," the Australian Press Council said.</p> <p>The Council noted the publication “failed to take reasonable steps to avoid causing substantial offence, distress or prejudice without sufficient justification in the public interest.”</p>

"She did not like me”: Dannii Minogue's tense relationship with mother-in-law

<p>Dannii Minogue was once married to actor Julian McMahon, which seems like a lifetime ago for the star. They met when they were both starring on <em>Home and Away,</em><span> </span>but Minogue has shed some light on what their marriage was like behind the scenes, especially her relationship with her mother-in-law, Lady Sonia McMahon.</p> <p>Minogue appeared on <em>Anh’s Brush with Fame</em> and was surprisingly candid about her past.</p> <p>"His family did not like me. There's a certain social pecking order and I was definitely not in that scene. She [Sonia] only spoke to me a couple of times," Minogue explained to Anh.</p> <p>Things eventually escalated to where Minogue was banned from the house.</p> <p>"She would not let me go to the family house. Sometimes [Julian] had to go and collect something and I was waiting in the car out the front. It was as if I'd done something wrong to the family, but I hadn't done anything wrong," she admitted.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img style="width: 0px; height: 0px;" src="/media/7827297/dannii-2.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/28e60f1d181641b481c3a0861abfa222" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em>Lady Sonia McMahon and son Julian McMahon</em></p> <p>Minogue also revealed that Sonia caused trouble at the wedding.</p> <p>"On the actual day of the wedding there was drama. [Sonia] said she wasn't going to show up, so that's quite stressful. Julian and I were going ahead with the marriage regardless.</p> <p>"So she did end up coming and was causing a scene … it wasn't the greatest … it was hard. I just tried to stay away from it, I just wanted to enjoy the day."</p> <p>The marriage lasted for 18 months, with the pair divorcing in 1996.</p> <p>The pair have both since moved on, as Julian is onto his third marriage after tying the knot with Kelly Paniagua in 2014, and Minogue shares 8-year-old son Ethan with her ex Kris Smith, and is in a relationship with music producer, Adrian Newman. </p>

“The happiest man alive”: Never-before-seen footage of JFK Jr’s secret wedding

<p>Viewers will be able to get a glimpse into the secret wedding of John F Kennedy Jr and Carolyn Bessette later this year thanks to a new special.</p> <p>The special, which was first announced in 2018, will share footage shot by Kennedy’s friend during his wedding to Bessette in 1996 on Cumberland Island in Georgia.</p> <p>“On an island off of Georgia we came together on this 18th century plantation. In this dirty, dilapidated, shuttered church next to a pig sty,” a friend says in the preview.</p> <p>“No air conditioning, very little power on the island. It was the best place for them to host a secret ceremony.”</p> <p>That same friend then says afterwards: “Nobody would have expected that three years later we’d be at another church for another reason.”</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet tw-align-center" data-lang="en-gb"> <p dir="ltr">More trailer footage...JFK Jr &amp; Carolyn Bessette: A Camelot Wedding <a href="https://t.co/Nl08voKU7f">pic.twitter.com/Nl08voKU7f</a></p> — Mrs. M ☀️ (@MrsMogul) <a href="https://twitter.com/MrsMogul/status/1128341652773396480?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">14 May 2019</a></blockquote> <p>The former first son fell victim to what many call the “Kennedy curse” and faced a tragic death. Speaking to <a rel="noopener" href="https://people.com/" target="_blank"><em>People</em></a> magazine in 2018, John Jr’s former assistant RoseMarie Terenzino said that the former bachelor was kept on his toes as Carolyn didn’t immediately agree to tie the knot.</p> <p>“He went into this thing about how everything’s better with a partner, not just fishing but life,” she said.</p> <p>But despite his determination, Carolyn found the fame that came with being John Jr's partner to be daunting.</p> <p>“She held off the proposal for about three weeks. I think it made him all the more intent on marrying her,” said Terenzino.</p> <p>They eventually married one another in a private ceremony, but the happiness was short-lived as three years later, the pair were killed in a plane crash as they travelled to the same island where John Jr first popped the question.</p> <p>The tragedy occurred on July 16, 1999 as the couple and John Jr’s sister-in-law Lauren were en route to the wedding of his cousin Rory, with John Jr flying the plane.</p> <p>They never made it.</p> <p>It was later revealed that extreme weather conditions caused the plane to crash, claiming all three lives.</p> <p>Their lives were cut short, during a period where the couple were still very much in love.</p> <p>“To say their relationship was on the rocks is just inaccurate,” said Carole Radziwill, the former wife of John Jr’s cousin Anthony Radziwill.</p> <p>“They loved each other – Carolyn was quite the loveable person.</p> <p>“She was clever, she was naughty and she had the balance of being able to be really serious and deep yet funny.”</p> <p>She went on to say: “I still miss her after all these years.”</p>

The pair have been developing the series for several months and are looking forward to sharing such an important project on this global platform. The dynamic multi-part documentary series will focus on both mental illness and mental wellness, inspiring viewers to have an honest conversation about the challenges each of us faces, and how to equip ourselves with the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive. This commitment builds on The Duke of Sussex’s long-standing work on issues and initiatives regarding mental health, where he has candidly shared personal experience and advocated for those who silently suffer, empowering them to get the help and support they deserve. His Royal Highness has spent many years working with communities throughout the UK and young people across the Commonwealth to break the stigma surrounding mental illness and broaden the conversation of mental wellness to accelerate change for a more compassionate, connected and positive society. Quote from HRH: “I truly believe that good mental health - mental fitness - is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self. It is a huge responsibility to get this right as we bring you the facts, the science and the awareness of a subject that is so relevant during these times. Our hope is that this series will be positive, enlightening and inclusive - sharing global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places, and the opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better. I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series.”</a></p> <p style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 17px; margin-bottom: 0; margin-top: 8px; overflow: hidden; padding: 8px 0 7px; text-align: center; text-overflow: ellipsis; white-space: nowrap;">A post shared by <a style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: 17px;" rel="noopener" href="https://www.instagram.com/sussexroyal/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_medium=loading" target="_blank"> The Duke and Duchess of Sussex</a> (@sussexroyal) on Apr 10, 2019 at 2:58am PDT</p> </div> </blockquote> <p>In an appearance on CBS’s <em>This Morning</em>, Winfrey said she and the Prince had “secret meetings” in London to develop the project.</p> <p>“I’ve flown there with the crew, sitting in sessions talking about the directions we’re going to take [with the series],” she said.</p> <p>“Our hope is that it will have an impact to reduce the stigma and help people to know they’re not alone, allowing people to speak up about it and identify it for themselves and their friends.”</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none" data-lang="en"> <p dir="ltr">Prince Harry and <a href="https://twitter.com/Oprah?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@Oprah</a> are launching an Apple TV docu-series tackling mental health. <br /><br />"Our hope is it will have an impact on reducing the stigma and allowing people to know that they are not alone." -- <a href="https://twitter.com/Oprah?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@Oprah</a> Winfrey <a href="https://t.co/KsEyn1d9DA">pic.twitter.com/KsEyn1d9DA</a></p> — CBS This Morning (@CBSThisMorning) <a href="https://twitter.com/CBSThisMorning/status/1115968827110588416?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">April 10, 2019</a></blockquote> <p>She revealed that the collaboration came about when she was having a conversation with the Prince and asked him what the most important issues facing the world were.</p> <p>“He said there were two,” she said. “He said climate change and he said mental wellness, mental fitness.”</p> <p>She added, “As you know, he’s spoken about his own issues and what he went through after his mother died and how being able to talk about it has benefited him.</p> <p>“And I was telling him about this Apple platform and he said at the end of the conversation, ‘If there’s anything I can do to help.’ And I go, ‘As a matter of fact…’”</p> <p>In June 2018, Apple announced that it has signed a multi-year partnership with Winfrey to create original programs for the tech company.</p> <p>The upcoming docu-series is Prince Harry’s latest project that focuses on mental health.

Michael J Fox opens up about recent health struggles: "To get to that place is pretty dark"

<p>Michael J Fox has opened up about his recent health struggles. The actor and comedian, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991, revealed his new health problems in an interview with <a rel="noopener" href="https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/03/01/magazine/michael-j-fox-parkinsons-acting.html?module=inline" target="_blank"><em>The NY Times</em></a>.</p> <p>“I was having the recurring problem with my spinal cord,” said the 57-year-old.</p> <p>“I was told it was benign but if it stayed static I would have diminished feeling in my legs and difficulty moving. Then all of a sudden I started falling – a lot. It was getting ridiculous. I was trying to parse what was the Parkinson’s and what was the spinal thing.”</p> <p>Fox revealed that he was heading for work in August 2018 when he fell and fractured his arm, resulting in him getting 19 pins and a plate to repair the bones.</p> <p>While the <em>Back To The Future</em> star did not believe that these medical struggles happened “for a reason”, he said: “I do think the more unexpected something is, the more there is to learn from it. In my case, what was it that made me skip down the hallway to the kitchen thinking I was fine when I’d been in a wheelchair six months earlier?”</p> <p><img style="width: 500px; height: 281.25px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" src="/media/7824313/1michael-j-fox-embed.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/5ad3eab7f8354ec998a6d05fe128b6e9" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;" class="p1"><em>Michael J. Fox attends the 2018 Fan Expo Canada at Metro Toronto Convention Centre on August 31, 2018 in Toronto, Canada.</em></p> <p>Fox is currently working on a book about his health journey. “I realized that the understanding I’d reached with Parkinson’s was sincere but risked being glib,” he said.</p> <p>“I’d made peace with the disease but presumed others had that same relationship when they didn’t. Then when I started to deal with the effects from the spinal surgery, I realized: 'Wow, it can get a lot worse.'</p> <p>“My health issues last year brought me to places where I started to say, ‘Was it false hope I’d been selling? Is there a line beyond which there is no consolation?’ For me to get to that place is pretty dark.”</p> <p>Upon finding out his diagnosis at the age of 29, Fox took up numerous jobs in comedy films that turned out to be critical and commercial flops.</p> <p>“I was so scared,” he said. “I’m fine now but back then I wasn’t in the ‘I’m fine now.’ I was in the ‘I’m going to be bad.’ That thinking didn’t allow me to trust that I could make a decision without worrying about time restrictions or financial pressures – which were inflated in my head.”</p> <p>Fox said he only began to accept his disease in 1994 and went public with it in 1998. He went on to open the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, a foundation dedicated to finding a cure for the disease, in 2000.</p>

Awkward ending as Ellen DeGeneres reunites two long-lost friends

<div> <div class="replay"> <div class="reply_body body linkify"> <div class="reply_body"> <div class="body_text "> <p>A girl who took to Twitter to find her long-lost friend was reunited with her on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show – but things didn’t go according to plan.</p> <p>Virginia resident Brianna Cry tweeted in November a childhood snap of her sitting with a young girl who she met for one night on a dinner cruise in Hawaii in 2006.</p> <p>She hoped the tweet would help her track down her friend Heidi, and after going viral, Brianna found her friend 11 hours after she had posted the photo.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"> <p dir="ltr">Hey twitter, I met this girl on a dinner cruise in Hawaii in 2006. We were basically bestfriends for that night so I need y’all to help me find my bestfriend cause I miss her and I need to see how she’s doing now. Please retweet this so we can be reunited. <a href="https://t.co/LRtk6ClvV3">pic.twitter.com/LRtk6ClvV3</a></p> — Bri (@briannacry) <a href="https://twitter.com/briannacry/status/1066257032473399297?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">24 November 2018</a></blockquote> <p>The heartwarming story reached Ellen, and so of course, the talk show host had to reunite them by inviting them both on the show.</p> <p>The two women met for the second time after 12 years, but the reunion fell short as it became obvious that Heidi wasn’t as eager to meet Brianna as everyone hoped she would.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none" data-lang="en-gb"> <p dir="ltr">Heard you were looking for me~ <a href="https://t.co/Dz4z1wapRv">pic.twitter.com/Dz4z1wapRv</a></p> — heii (@heii_tree) <a href="https://twitter.com/heii_tree/status/1066427544960815109?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">24 November 2018</a></blockquote> <p>The segment started off with Brianna and Heidi sitting down on the couch with Heidi feigning shock when she discovered Brianna flew from interstate just to meet her.</p> <p>“You flew in from Virginia?” asked Heidi.</p> <p>Ellen then proceeded to ask Heidi if she felt a “connection” with Brianna on the dinner cruise where the two originally met, but her answer wasn’t what anyone was expecting.</p> <p>“I think … yeah I did,” she said. “I mean, it was just for the one day. I’m sorry, but it was.”</p> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/2ocFwp9_wA0" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen=""></iframe> <p>Despite Ellen’s best efforts, the awkwardness between the pair didn’t go unnoticed by viewers.</p> <p>“They don’t even look like they’re glad to see each other,” tweeted one person.</p> <p>“The Asian girl didn’t seem enthused at all to see her long lost friend from that cruise. I felt sorry for the other girl. She was just kinda pushed to the side,” wrote another.</p> <p>One thing that did excite Heidi was Ellen presenting both ladies with $10,000 to help pay for university.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div>
