Inside the HBO series and the stunt that she calls “one of our maddest endeavors.”
This is exactly what Hearties need to hear.
Here comes the bride, dressed in a sexy surprise.
She's *finally* speaking out.
"She's the inventor of the 'shove back.'"
And included a sentimental detail inside.
"The best moisturizer I have ever used."
Alma Wahlberg, the mother of entertainers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg and a regular on their reality series “Wahlburgers,” has died, her sons said on social media Sunday. She was 78. “My angel. Rest in peace,” Mark Wahlberg tweeted. Donnie Wahlberg posted a longer tribute to his mother on his Instagram account. “It’s time to rest peacefully, mom,” Donnie Wahlberg wrote. “I love you, miss you, thank you and will celebrate you, today and always.” No information was given about the cause, date or location of her death. Donnie Wahlberg often posted about his mother on his accounts and in July updated his fans on her health, writing that she “didn’t remember much and was often confused but somehow she was still Alma.” The Boston-born mother of nine became a household name thanks to her appearances on the A&E series “Wahlburgers,” about the family’s burgeoning burger chain. “She made no apologies for who she was, but never put herself above anyone else. She kicked our butts if we messed up, kicked anyone else’s butts if they messed with us. Taught us right, made us pay the price when we were wrong,” Donnie Wahlberg wrote Sunday. “She was the epitome of the word grace.” He also included a video of them dancing at his wedding to one of her favourite songs, “If I Could” by Regina Belle. He wrote that she danced to that song at each of her children’s weddings, but at his own, he surprised her by having Belle there to perform it live. On the “Today” show in 2018, Alma Wahlberg opened up about her parenting and how hard it was early on. “I invented the craziest meals,” she said. English muffin pizzas were among her creations to feed her hungry lot. More than a few of her children went on to great successes and fame. Her son Paul Wahlberg, who is the chef behind the namesake burger chain, also named the Alma Nove restaurant in Hingham, Massachusetts, after her. “People know me as being the mother of famous children, and although this fact has brought many gifts into my life and has afforded me opportunities that may never have been possible otherwise, there is a whole lot more to my story than most people know,” Alma Wahlberg said in an interview with Boston’s WCVB-TV in 2018. “I’ve lived with alcoholism and abuse; struggled with poverty and experienced great wealth; lost so many that I’ve loved; struggle to raise nine children, and I love them more than anything else; watch them suffer, learn and come out on the other side; lost myself; found myself, again and again; and kept moving forward, no matter what.” Alma Wahlberg is survived by eight children.

OK, we knew Dolly Parton was having a moment… but if you were hoping for her second shipment of ice cream, sadly you had way less than a moment to grab it this week. Thursday's followup release of Strawberry Pretzel Pie sold out instantly, again. This time, it'll take way longer than a week for Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams to craft the next supply.Our editors have been tracking the Jeni's x Dolly Parton Strawberry Pretzel Pie ice cream saga—not only because we're here to keep you informed, but because we really want to get our spoons on it, too. On April 8, when Dolly Parton's ice cream went on sale the first time, we were among those who realized it was immediately game-over. Jeni's issued an apology via social media, explaining that they hadn't actually sold out, contrary to what many fans believed. They'd just experienced technical issues that took a day to resolve.RELATED: 15 Underrated Weight Loss Tips That Actually WorkWhen things were back online, Jeni's issued a notification on their site that another shipment would be available this past Thursday, April 15, when they sent an email to subscribers to let them know when the second Dolly's sale was live. But—as anyone would guess—once more, the 5,000 pints sold out in a flash, as they announced on Instagram. Over on their website, Jeni's stated: "At 3 p.m. (ET) on 4/15, we will offer a pre-order on a second run of 15,000 Strawberry Pretzel Pie pints…"…Available when? "Available with a ship date in August."The fan reactions on Instagram ranged from "So happy for those that grabbed Strawberry Pretzel Pie today!" to the more grumblesome soul who said they'd support Dolly Parton's reading program for children another way: "I'm just going to donate to the Imagination Library. Trying to get that ice cream was a headache." Another follower made this request: "My humble suggestion is to possibly try non-prime working hours for any future releases." All valid, while a lot of comments indicate more shoppers saw better luck with the second sale.If you missed out on Dolly Parton's Strawberry Pretzel Pie, maybe we can make it up to you with special access to something else: Check out The Secret Starbucks Order Everyone Is Trying Right Now.
Dwayne Johnson called his daughter Tiana "loving" and "tenacious" in a sweet tribute to the 3-year-old
"Most people can hide their family difficulties...hers are always the focus of public attention."
She shared photos of his over-the-top gift on Instagram.
A visit to a frozen yogurt shop prompted the pop star to take a stand against "harmful messaging."
She is said to be the Queen’s favourite daughter-in-law, and now the monarch is set to turn to the Countess of Wessex to fill the gap left by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in carrying out royal duties. The 56-year-old Countess was one of the most prominent members of the Royal family in the days following the Duke of Edinburgh’s death. She made the first public comments about his passing, repeatedly visited Windsor Castle and provided a photograph of the Queen and the Duke at Balmoral that Her Majesty chose to share with the world as a tribute to her late husband. The departure of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex from the UK, and the effective retirement of the Duke of York, has left a major hole in the roster of Royal family members available to carry out public duties, and the Countess has been groomed to step out of the shadows in the year since “Megxit”. Her husband, the Earl of Wessex, 57, is also expected to increase his public profile as he prepares to take on the title Duke of Edinburgh when the Prince of Wales - who automatically inherited the title from his father - becomes king.
She also brought one of the handkerchiefs he always wore in his suit pockets.
It's tempting to think the coronavirus pandemic is almost over, since vaccines are being distributed at a record rate and cities are opening up—but be careful out there, warned Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, this morning. He spoke with Margaret Brennan on CBS's Face the Nation about why the rising infection rate is a danger to you, no matter where you live, and what you can do in the next few weeks to stay safe. Read on for 5 essential points he wants you to hear, as cases rise—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss this urgent news: Here's How You Can Catch COVID Even If You're Vaccinated. 1 Dr. Fauci Warned That We Have to Do These Two Things or You Might Get COVID "When will the infection rate come down?" asked Brennan of the numbers, which are going in the wrong direction. "I think it's going to come down as soon as we do two things," answered Dr. Fauci. "One that I'm sure we'll be able to do is to continue the really very fine rate of vaccination, where we're vaccinating between 3 and 4 million people per day, but the other wildcard—and this has to be making sure that until we get to that point, we don't pull back on public health measures because we're having between 60 and 70,000 new infections per day. And it would really I think not be prudent at all to declare victory prematurely and pull back without a doubt as we continue every single day to get more and more people vaccinated, that rate will go down. If we don't give the virus the opportunity to essentially surge and by giving the virus the opportunity." Keep reading to see which vaccines he thinks are safe. 2 Dr. Fauci Said You May Need to Get Booster Shots—and Could Get COVID After Your Vaccine Will boosters be needed so we can be protected from new variants—or if the current vaccine efficacy fades? "You know, we're going to find that out soon," said Dr. Fauci, "because you determine whether a booster is needed to the particular virus that you're dealing with. Like the standard virus—if you get a level of immunity, which is measured generally by antibodies, it's a correlate of immunity. When that level starts to fade down to a certain critical level, then it's a good indication you'll need a boost. Or if you start to see breakthrough infections"—that's when you get COVID-19 after your vaccination—"either with the original virus or with the variant, and if it's with the variants, even though a person's vaccinated, you might want to boost with a very specific boost, as opposed to just the boost to the regular. So we'll know sometime I believe by the end of the summer, but at the beginning of the fall, likely by the end of the summer, whether or not we're going to have to boost people." 3 Dr. Fauci Said the Moderna and Pfizer Vaccines Were Very Safe, and We'll Know More About J&J This Friday Fauci was asked if he'd still recommend the Johnson&Johnson vaccine, given that it has been "paused" due to six people having blood clots. "From a standpoint of efficacy, no doubt" the J&J vaccine works, said Dr. Fauci. "We're dealing with three highly efficacious vaccines. The issue of safety now is being examined. We'll know a lot more about that by Friday"—when the CDC will meet to discuss next steps—"but the one thing we should emphasize when you're dealing with safety, people should not extrapolate a pause with one vaccine to the other vaccines. For example, the same surveillance system that picked up the six women in the J&J was the same surveillance system that the CDC and the FDA uses with the Moderna product and with the Pfizer product. And thus far, there have been no red flags of that—even though tens and tens and tens of millions of people have been vaccinated with those vaccines. So one of the things you can take away from all of this is that when the surveillance system, the CDC and the FDA say that something is safe, you can be sure that it's safe." 4 Dr. Fauci Said When We'd Get Back to Normal So when will we finally get back to the way things were before the pandemic? "If we do those two things simultaneously—continue to vaccinate at the same time as we just hang in there a bit longer—well, I believe we will be okay. We will reach the point where we will be able to get back to doing things the way we did before, but we're going to have to make sure that we get as many people vaccinated as we possibly can." RELATED: 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID 5 How to Get Through the End of This Pandemic Safely Follow Fauci's fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—wear a face mask that fits snugly and is double layered, don't travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise.

Hollywood legend Robert De Niro is unable to turn down acting roles because he must pay for his estranged wife's expensive tastes, the actor's lawyer has claimed. Caroline Krauss told a Manhattan court that he is struggling financially because of the pandemic, a massive tax bill and the demands of Grace Hightower, who filed for divorce in 2018 after 21 years of marriage. The court has been asked to settle how much De Niro should pay Ms Hightower, 66, until the terms of the prenuptial agreement the couple negotiated in 2004 takes effect. “Mr De Niro is 77 years old, and while he loves his craft, he should not be forced to work at this prodigious pace because he has to,” Ms Krauss told the court. “When does that stop? When does he get the opportunity to not take every project that comes along and not work six-day weeks, 12-hour days so he can keep pace with Ms Hightower’s thirst for Stella McCartney?”
Coronavirus restrictions are still in effect, even for fully vaccinated Americans, and "some vaccinated Americans may want to travel, eat indoors at restaurants. So what is the scientific reason that it isn't safe for vaccinated Americans to do those things?" That's the question on the minds of many Americans, and it was asked this morning by CNN's State of the Union host Dana Bash to guest Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the President and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Read on to see what Dr. Fauci said—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss this urgent news: Here's How You Can Catch COVID Even If You're Vaccinated. 1 Dr. Fauci Said You Needed to Practice Caution After Vaccination Because You Could Get COVID Yes, it is possible to get COVID after your vaccination, although rare—the CDC recently estimated about 5,800 breakthrough infections, out of estimated 77 million people vaccinated. "Although they're unusual, we are seeing breakthrough infections," said Dr. Fauci. How could that happen to you? There may be a primary vaccine failure, "when the body actually doesn't mount adequate immune response for a number of reasons," he explained, listing them as "immune status, health status, age medications you're on, or something wrong with the vaccine storage delivery composition." It's another reason to keep wearing a mask and social distancing after your vaccine. Keep reading for more reasons. 2 Dr. Fauci Said You Needed to Practice Caution After Vaccination Because You Could Spread COVID "The first thing you got to realize is that when you get vaccinated, your risk of getting infected dramatically diminishes and is very low. So then the obvious question is why are there any restrictions there?" asked Dr. Fauci on CNN, ready to answer his own question: "Because in a certain situation, one can get vaccinated, have no clinical disease at all, but get infected and not even know it and have replication of virus in your nasopharynx and inadvertently transmit it to somebody else who might actually be unvaccinated and get ill. That's the reason why you want to wear a mask." 3 Dr. Fauci Said You Needed to Practice Caution After Vaccination Because There are Variants Spreading "Then the other reason for wearing a mask is that there are variants that are circulating." Fauci calls these variants "a bit disturbing….Fortunately for us, the 1.1.7, which is the variant that was originating in the UK, our vaccines are effective against them." but others may be more precarious. 4 So What are the Exact Risks Then? Dr. Fauci Weighed In. Is it "safe" to do things after vaccination? "The issue is it depends on what you mean by safe and its relative risks," said Dr. Fauci. "So when people say, well, why can't I go [here or there]? You can travel. Your risk is really very low." So why does the CDC discourage travel? "What the CDC is saying is that it depends on what your level of risk that you want to take. The one thing you want to do is be careful that you don't inadvertently infect someone else or that given the fact that we have 70,000, 60 to 70,000 new infections in the community, that is a precarious situation. That's the point. So we don't want people to think that you don't dramatically diminish your risk when you get vaccinated, you absolutely do. The risk is very low and people will make decisions about what they want to do, and it will be a relative risk. What risk am I willing to take?"RELATED: 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID 5 How to Stay Your Safest During This Pandemic Follow Fauci's fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—wear a face mask that fits snugly and is double layered, don't travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise.
