tara reid discusses quarantining with bffs jedward

Tara Reid revealed she has been in quarantine with Jedward twins, John and Edward Grimes, throughout the coronavirus lockdown. 

Sharing a picture of herself with the 27-year-old boys, who she met on Celebrity Big Brother back in 2011, she wrote about how grateful she is to them. 

She penned: ‘I’m so happy I’m with my bffs John and Edward @jepicpics thank god they are with me during my quarantine my experience.

'Thank God they're with me': Tara Reid, 44, discussed quarantining with BFFs Jedward, 28,as she posted this picture on Instagram on Wednesday

‘Would not have been the same without them be safe we all care about you.’

The Irish pop duo are currently living in 44-year-old Tara’s Los Angeles penthouse and Tara has said they are using the time to work on new material. 

She told Digital Spy: ‘We are all artists. John and Edward, you should see the songs they’re writing right now.’

She said the trio have all been listening to the lectures of spiritual guru Deepak Chopra every day.

‘We did it last night together with all the lights off,’ the boys said.  

‘And wecleaned her windows yesterday,’ they added.  

While fans will be said they can’t get a peek of the three of them recreating their experience in the Big Brother house, there is some good news for fans.

issa rae on the moment that motivated her to make it in emmys segment on black

Issa Rae appeared in a segment during Sunday’s Emmy Awards in which she spoke about how she persevered through adversity and racial bias en route to the success she’s found with the HBO show Insecure.

The 35-year-old actress/writer recalled, ‘My first Hollywood pitch was kind of unofficial: Basically, I had this web series. It was the third web series I had ever made.

She said the executive, who she pitched the show to, who was not Black, was like, “Yes, I saw your show. Funny stuff… Funny stuff.” And I was like, “Um, thank you.”

‘He was like, ”Yeah, it’s about this Black woman and her Black-woman problems. Hilarious.” And I was like,”That’s not what it’s about. But okay.”’

The Los Angeles native recalled how the executive told her ‘the Black audience … want to see familiar faces’ so she could have ‘to switch up the characters’ to make the show a success.

Rae said that ‘it just became very clear to [her] that he didn’t get the show,’ and her ire over the situation fueled her drive to success in the industry on her terms.

‘I remember just fuming in that meeting like, ”Why does he get to tell me what gets to be on TV? Why does he get to tell me what people like me like to see? I’m here! I’m telling you what I want to see. I made it,”‘ she said.

‘For me, that moment was the motivation I needed to keep doing what I was doing – to kind of bet on myself. 

‘And that fueled me. Like, ”Oh, okay. I’ll show you.” And, you know, one of us got fired after that.’

Rae’s Insecure on Sunday was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series, in addition to acting nods for Rae and co-star Yvonne Orji.

Rae’s remarks came in a segment in a year which the Emmys saw a record number of Black actors – about 34 percent of all nominees – up for awards, Variety reported. The previous high was about 28 percent in 2018, and last year, about 20 percent of the nominees were Black, the outlet reported.

Television Academy chairman and CEO Frank Scherma said when the nominees were announced: ‘2020 isn’t just about the global health crisis. This year we are also bearing witness to one of the greatest fights for social justice in history, and it is our duty to use this medium for change.

‘That is the power and responsibility of television – not only delivering a multitude of services or a little escapism, but also amplifying the voices that must be heard and telling the stories that must be told. Because television, by its very nature, connects us all.’

Sunday’s show marked a socially distant event amid the ongoing COVID-19 virus, with most participants appearing via remote. In July, the show was moved to be held virtually with the pandemic continuing.

Grant and Chezzi Denyer reveal their romance started as an AFFAIR

grant and chezzi denyer reveal their romance started as an affair

Grant and Chezzi Denyer have one of the strongest marriages in Australian showbiz.

But it wasn’t always smooth sailing for the lovebirds, who started their romance when they were both colleagues working on Channel Seven’s Sunrise in 2005.

Chezzi revealed on their podcast It’s All True? that the pair began dating when they were both in relationships with other people.

‘It was a rough journey’: Grant and Chezzi Denyer have revealed their romance started as an affair when they were both colleagues working on Channel Seven’s Sunrise in 2005

‘It was a rough journey – it wasn’t like what you see in the movies,’ said Chezzi, 40, who was Grant’s producer on Sunrise when he joined the program as a weatherman. 

When they first got together, Chezzi was married to another man, and Grant, 43, was dating another woman. 

‘It was problematic; it took a long time to navigate,’ Grant said.

Working together complicated matters, as Seven executives were convinced Chezzi was leaking stories about the pair to the press.

She feared the network would send her off to Cairns or Townsville as a punishment, but instead she decided to leave television altogether.

‘In the end I left TV. I couldn’t deal with it. My parents were petrified. I basically ran away and moved back to Bathurst,’ she said.

The Denyers did not confirm their relationship for a while, and even Grant’s family didn’t know how serious things were between them.

But everything changed when Grant broke his back in a monster truck accident in 2008. 

‘At the time we hadn’t confirmed our relationship,’ Chezzi said. ‘Grant’s family didn’t know about me but we had been living together for three months.’

Grant’s mother apparently didn’t want the couple living together, fearing Chezzi was a ‘gold digger’, but they persevered nonetheless.  

Chezzi remained by her husband’s side every step of the way during his recovery, and they ended up marrying in 2010.

They share two daughters, Sailor, eight, and Scout, four, and Chezzi recently confirmed she was pregnant with their third child.

Grant said their unfiltered podcast was a way for the couple to set the record straight on tabloid stories concerning their marriage.  

‘This could be a platform for us to level with you and tell you what the hell is true and what isn’t true,’ he explained.

Courteney Cox models two Emmy viewing outfits on Instagram as Queer Eye’s Tan asks fans to choose

The best in television is being honored Sunday in Los Angeles at the annual Emmy Awards.

But this year, it’s a socially-distanced and virtual ceremony instead of the usual red carpet fanfare and star-studded gathering.

And as she prepared to watch the show on TV at her home, Friends star Courteney Cox modeled two different outfits on her Instagram Story as pal Tan France from Netflix‘s Queer Eye invited her followers to choose between them.

For her first ensemble option, Courteney, 56, wore a beige long-sleeve top with collar and unfastened buttons at the top.

She paired it with blue jeans and taupe heels.

The second option the actress presented to fans was a pink crew neck sweater worn with indigo skinny jeans and black heeled ankle boots.

She modeled both outfits in what appeared to be an expansive bathroom with wood floors, a white shaggy run, long vanity with mirrors and a floor-to-ceiling glass shower.

This year’s Emmys honoring the best in television promise to be radically different as producers scrambled to create Hollywood’s first major pandemic-era awards show.

The coronavirus has turned Tinseltown upside down, bringing productions to a halt even as stay-at-home orders around the world send binge-watching through the roof.

Late night funnyman Jimmy Kimmel hosts the 72nd Emmys live on Sunday from an empty theater in Los Angeles with winners beaming in from the safety of their homes due to Covid-19.

Adding to the unpredictability on a night of firsts, 130-odd nominees who were sent cameras to hook up in their own living rooms have been encouraged to get creative with their speeches.

There will be no red carpet and no star-studded audience. A-listers are invited to trade gowns and tuxedos for pajamas.

‘Ratings have been flagging for award shows for years… This is, if nothing else, an opportunity to mix things up, to do an award ceremony in a way unlike any other that’s been done,’ said IndieWire TV awards editor Libby Hill.

‘Even if Sunday night is a complete disaster, it’s at least going to be an interesting disaster. And that’s really all you ask for in 2020.’

Capturing this year’s somewhat anarchic zeitgeist, Watchmen leads the charge with a whopping 26 nominations, primarily in the limited series categories.

The eerily prescient comic book adaptation that debuted last October confronts historic US racism, police violence and even mask-wearing. It also wowed critics and audiences alike.

Watchmen speaks so specifically in so many unprecedented ways to the moment in which we’re living right now,’ said Hill.

‘I think people will probably get pretty tired of hearing Watchmen’s name getting called… it’s as much of a lock as we have right now.’

With HBO’s record-breaking Emmys juggernaut Game of Thrones having finally mounted a dragon and soared off to Westeros, the awards in the drama series categories promise to be more fiercely contested this year.

‘It’s a relief for HBO that they have Succession hitting at the right time,’ said Deadline awards columnist Pete Hammond.

The critically adored show about a powerful family’s back-stabbing battle for control of a dynastic media empire won a writing Emmy in its first season, and has amassed 18 nominations this time.

But it is tied with Ozark, a dark money-laundering tale set in the American heartland from Netflix, which despite landing a record 160 nominations this year is still desperate to win its first major series Emmy.

Lurking in the background are British royals saga The Crown and Star Wars tale The Mandalorian, which boasts lavish Thrones-esque production values and has already scooped five Emmys in technical categories this week for newcomer Disney+.

Comedy this year appears to be a toss-up between previous serial winner The Marvelous Mrs Maisel- Amazon’s quirky tale of a 1950s housewife who becomes a standup comic – and Schitt’s Creek.

The latter, a Canadian comedy about a privileged family forced to live in a rundown motel, failed to earn a single nomination in its first four years, but became a sleeper hit after airing on Netflix and signed off with a heartwarming final season.

Aside from the awards themselves, the night will honor the career achievement of Tyler Perry.

The African-American entertainment mogul has championed greater diversity in Hollywood, and this year paid funeral costs for black victims of police violence including George Floyd.
