My Best Hair Coloring Experience Ever!

by Manisha @ Color N Glitter

I have always been fascinated by the transformation that highlights can bring about in the overall look. When done well, highlights can lift the look without looking unrealistic. Although I have been coloring my hair for over a decade now, I haven’t been too adventurous with highlights after a not-so-good experience I had about 12 […]

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

by mariayagoda @ PEOPLE.com

Samoas in cupcake form was a thing we never knew we needed, but now it’s the only thing we can think about.

Pillsbury just unveiled Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes, which are available in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut – a.k.a. Samoas – flavors. The four new mixes are for baking cupcakes, brownies and blondies — unfortunately, you won’t be able to make actual Girl Scout Cookies, because that would put a lot of 7-year-olds out of business.

“Families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season,” said Girl Scouts of the USA chief revenue officer Barry Horowitz in a statement.

GSC loyalists are, to put it mildly, freaking out.

The mixes, now available nationwide, retail for $3.29 each — almost $2 less than what you’d pay for a box of cookies.

Easily the best part of all this news is the fact that we will now be able to eat Girl Scout Cookie dough, something we never thought would be possible in our lifetimes!

Can you tell we’re excited about it?

Everything We Know About Khloé Kardashian's Romance with Tristan Thompson (So Far)

Everything We Know About Khloé Kardashian's Romance with Tristan Thompson (So Far)

by Julia Emmanuele @ PEOPLE.com

After a few love false starts, Khloé Kardashian finally has her Prince Charming – NBA player Tristan Thompson.

With the announcement on Tuesday that the couple are going to be parents, it’s time to take a look back to where it all began.

HE’S VERY MUCH HER TYPE
From day one it was clear that the twenty-six-year-old Thompson had the sporting skills that in the past turned the reality’s star head. Thompson already has an impressive NBA career under his belt. Originally from Canada, he was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2011, and helped the team win its first NBA Championship in June. He also played for the Canadian national team this summer, although they didn’t qualify for the Olympics.

THEIR LOVE WENT GLOBAL EARLY
A week after first being spotted out together in September 2016, the two celebrated Labor Day weekend together in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. They were photographed fitting in some R&R on the beaches, but …

BUT THEY WERE TAKING THINGS SLOWLY – AT FIRST
Despite their tropical vacation, a source told PEOPLE at the time that they were a “mini-thing. They like each other and are hanging out.”

WE’RE NOT TOTALLY SURE WHEN IT STARTED …
It turns out that Thompson and Kardashian’s “mini-thing” has been going on since before their 2016 Labor Day getaway. “Khloé and Tristan have been seeing each other for a little bit,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “He’s a really nice, good guy, and she seems very happy with him.”

… BUT HE QUICKLY EARNED KRIS JENNER’S SEAL OF APPROVAL
Looks like Khloé isn’t the only Kardashian that Thompson has won over: The reality star posted this super-cuddly photo on her Snapchat account, featuring a grinning Jenner. (And if Kris approves, then we do, too!)

THEY’RE ALL ABOUT THE PDA
They may have been keeping it casual in the fall, but these two were never shy about showing off how into each other they were from the start. In fact, things got very steamy when they attended Drake’s concert in L.A. in September, where they were spotted dancing and kissing in the audience.

HE GETS ALONG WITH HER FRIENDS, TOO
Everyone knows that all new relationships live or die by the best friend test — and luckily, it looks like Thompson has passed with flying colors. He and Kardashian were spotted out with her best friend, Malika Haqq, in September in West Hollywood, where the trio took in a comedy show.

In October, Haqq and her sister, Khadijah, gushed about Kardashian’s new love to PEOPLE. “He’s really nice to her,” Malika said. “He’s the coolest guy in the world — and you know, Khloé’s always loved basketball.”

THEIR RELATIONSHIP IS FILLED WITH ‘JOY AND LAUGHTER’
Their slow relationship quickly sped up to serious town as, just a month later, things between the two had taken a more serious turn. “I think — you know what, I think it’s the feeling. You know how people say it’s the look? It’s really cliché, but it just looks really good,” Malika told PEOPLE exclusively about Kardashian’s new relationship.

Her sister, Khadijah, added: “Not only do they look really good, I think it’s really special to find two people that there’s an element of joy and laughter that all of us are supposed to attain in relationships. And I don’t mean just male and female, but the fact that you can find that best friend aspect in your partner, that’s what it’s obviously about.”

“And hard to find,” added Malika. “So, it’s nice to watch.”

THEY HAVE A LOT IN COMMON
“You know, they’re both very giving and very kind,” Malika told PEOPLE. “They take great care of their friends and their families. They love to enjoy themselves. They both work very hard. They have a lot of things in common, and they’re extremely supportive.”

“And when they’re together, they have fun,” Khadijah chimed in.

SHE’S FOLLOWING HER HEART
The Haqq sisters told PEOPLE that they just want their best friend to be happy — and it seems as if Thompson is making her very happy indeed. “I think Khloé is really smart, in general, when it comes to relationships,” said Malika. “I think the stigma now is that she rushes, because she had rushed into her marriage, but she’s a lover.”

“She’s going to follow her heart always,” said Khadijah.

“And when you love genuinely, you get what you’re supposed to get out of that,” added Malika. “So, I think she’s just being smart, but I think she’s trusting love.”

THEY’VE ALREADY GOT MATCHING JEWELRY
When you’re a Kardashian, there’s no better way to confirm that your new relationship is going strong than by showcasing your matching bling on Instagram. After flying out to Cleveland to watch Thompson receive his 2016 Cavaliers NBA Championship ring in October last year, Kardashian posted a photo of Thompson’s new bling … along with her own hand, which was sporting a stack of diamond-encrusted rings. And just to see the his-and-hers theme through, she accessorized them with a red-and-gold-patterned Cavaliers ring.

THEY’VE MADE IT INSTAGRAM OFFICIALJust a few days after teasing fans with a picture of their matching rings, Kardashian finally made things Instagram official by posting a photo of the pair gazing deeply into each other’s eyes at a Halloween party. Kardashian, who was dressed as the X-Men character Storm, simply captioned the photo of her and her new beau (as Black Panther) with a heart emoji. And on the off-chance that you didn’t quite pick up on the meaning of that caption, Kardashian also posted quite a few steamy Snapchats of the couple, including one of them dancing and one of them making out in the middle of the party.

As we all know, once couples costumes are involved, things are definitely very serious.

THEY SPENT THE HOLIDAYS TOGETHERThe next big step in any relationship (after matching outfits, obviously) is spending the holidays together. In November, Kardashian flew out to Cleveland in order to support Thompson at the Turkey Drive that he and teammate J.R. Smith hosted in order to give food to underprivileged families at the Greater Friendship Baptist Church.

Two months later, the happy couple rang in 2017 together, and Kardashian posted two very steamy photos of her and her beau partying the night away — and showing plenty of PDA in the process.

 

 

Around that time, a source close to the Kardashians told PEOPLE that the couple “are insanely happy and in love,” and added, “It’s a healthy relationship and they’re very serious about each other.”

DROPPING THE “L WORLD”In January, Kardashian wrote in a post on her website and app about how compatible she and Thompson are, based on their astrological signs. “A love match between a Cancer and a Pisces is a positive meeting of spirits,” the reading revealed. “Both signs are basically tolerant and sympathetic, and Pisces is easily energized by Cancer’s ideas.” In another post, she wrote about how peaceful she felt in her new relationship: “It’s such a great feeling that I have my happy back! It’s from a genuine place and the most peaceful place I’ve been in for longer than I can even remember.”

“I think when you’re in love you definitely feel happy and healthy too,” Kardashian continued. “I like that my relationship is very normal and doesn’t need to be so publicized all the time.”

In addition to referring to the Cavaliers star as “my love” on her Instagram, Kardashian gushed about Thompson during a January appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. “I feel like I’m spotting something different about you — this time you might be glowing!” said Corden, 38, hinting at the reality star’s romance. “You seem like somebody who may have found love recently?”

“I have!” said Kardashian, all smiles. “I am, I’m very happy. It’s going good. We use the L word!”

All jokes, aside, a source confirmed to PEOPLE later that month that things were very serious between the two. “She spends more time with Tristan in Cleveland than in L.A,” the source revealed. “She of course thinking about the future. She hopes their relationship will have a future. Tristan makes her very happy.” 

THEY MADE THEOR LOVE KUWTK OFFICIAL, TOO

In March, things became even more serious for Thompson, who appeared on the season 13 premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, alongside his ladylove. However, during the episode, Kardashian attempted to shield her love from her family — in order to keep big sister, Kim, from finding out all the details. “So, I see pictures of Khloé with some NBA player, and even though I know not to believe everything on the internet, Khloé and a NBA player do go hand-in-hand,” Kim said on the show. “It’s my sister. Of course, I want to know who she’s hooking up with.”

“Kim’s my sister. I’m obviously going to tell her eventually,” Kardashian explained, as to why she wanted to keep things from her family. “But it’s fun to torture her. She’s tortured me my entire life, so I feel like this is the perfect time to drag this out as long as I possibly can.”

Eventually, Kardashian let her guard down and invited Thompson to accompany the family to Kanye West’s concert, knowing full well that her family would all be there — and that Kim would finally get her answers. Luckily, it seems like as long as Kardashian is happy, so are her sisters.

“I knew she was messing with me, but I’m just happy that she’s having a good time and starting a new relationship,” Kim, happy and satisfied, told the cameras. “He’s a little young, but I’m excited to tell Jonathan and, like, a couple of my friends!”

FROM COINAGE: The Lavish Lifestyle of the Kardashian Kids

SHE WANTS TO MARRY HIM — AND KNEW SHE WANTED TO START A FAMILY TOGETHER 

Kardashian opened up in the April 13 issue of ES magazine, sharing that she’d say “yes” if Thompson proposed — and that they’d talked about having a family.

“He is a father, and I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father,” she said, noting that he and ex Jordan Craig welcomed a child in December. The Revenge Body star also sees kids in her future, although she doesn’t feel a big rush to make it happen. “I definitely want to be a mom. But I don’t put the pressure on it. It’s not like, ‘The clock is ticking,’ ” she said. “I feel in my soul it will happen.”

THEY EMBARK ON COOKING ADVENTURES

Another benefit of dating the NBA star? The reality star is coming out of her comfort zone. Kardashian cooked kidney for the first time in June with her boyfriend, and for someone that doesn’t eat meat, it was a harrowing experience.

“So when you are in love with someone that’s Jamaican, you do very strange things, and I’m about to make kidney for the first time,” Kardashian is heard saying on her Snapchat, where she documented every step of the unique meal’s prep.

THE KARDASHIAN CREW ARE ALL FANS

Kris and Kourtney Kardashian as well as her kids, Mason, 7, and Penelope Disick, 4, were front and center supporting Khloé’s boyfriend of nearly one year. The Kardashian sisters were twinning, wearing leather leggings and proudly wearing Thompson’s gold #13 jerseys. Even Penelope donned Cavaliers colors in a yellow shirt. Momager Kris wore a bedazzled black and white sweater with black pants.

THEY’RE HOUSE HUNTING TOGETHER

A source told PEOPLE that Kardashian is house hunting with the 26-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers player. According to the source, they’re not moving in together officially just yet, but Thompson (who has a home in Cleveland) is looking to rent a place in Los Angeles. “They live at Khloé’s Calabasas house right now,” said the source, explaining that Thompson is hoping to land a home closer to the downtown area. “He thinks the drive from Calabasas to L.A. is too far every day,” says the source. “When they go out in L.A., they want a second house that’s closer.”

As for Kardashian? She’s “just the happiest,” said the source close to the star. “She loves spending every day with Tristan.”

THEY JOIN KIM & KANYE ON ‘QUICK TRIPS’ TOGETHER

Kim Kardashian West and Khloé headed to the northern California city on July 22 with their respective loves, Kanye West and Tristan Thompson, and were sure to document the moments before the trip on Snapchat. “Quick Trip to San Fran,” Kardashian West wrote on a video of the jet. She showed off the red carpet leading to the aircraft’s stairs.

KHLOÉ IS IN NO RUSH TO GET MARRIED

“I’m in the best relationship I’ve ever been in and it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way,” Kardashian told YOU magazine, gushing about her beau while expressing that she’s happy with her relationship as-is. “I believe in marriage and I want to be married again one day but I don’t have a time frame. Why do people think that marriage equates to happiness? There are a lot of people in unhealthy marriages.”

… AND NOW THEY’RE EXPECTING!

Khloé is the third Kardashian-Jenner sibling to be expecting a child.

The baby will be the first child for Khloé. Thompson, 26, welcomed a son named Prince Oliver with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig in December 2016.

“Yes, Khloe and Tristan are expecting and they are absolutely thrilled,” a source tells PEOPLE. “This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle. Things were complicated a bit by Kylie’s announcement as they don’t want to be seen as intruding on that moment for her but it is now reaching a point where Khloe doesn’t want to be openly lying to people, and just staying quiet isn’t going to work anymore.” 

Adding, “This is something Khloe has wanted for years and years and yet it’s more than that: she didn’t want it unless she was in the right relationship for it. She never let it happen with Lamar, intentionally, and she never considered it with James or French or anyone else she has seen. But this is such a wonderful moment for her: not only is she going to be a mother, she is going to be raising a child with a man she truly loves. Everyone is over the moon for them both.”

Kardashian’s pregnancy comes days after sources confirmed to PEOPLE on Friday that Kylie Jenner is expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend Travis Scott. She is due in February.

Kim and husband Kanye West are expecting their third child after hiring a surrogate to help them expand their family.

News of Khloé’s first baby on the way comes months after she admitted on the show’s season 13 finale — following news that her uterus looked normal after an initial fertility scare leading her to cease taking birth control — that she and her boyfriend have “definitely about starting a family” together.

Khloé Kardashian Is Pregnant! Revealed Days After Kylie Jenner's Big Baby News

Khloé Kardashian Is Pregnant! Revealed Days After Kylie Jenner's Big Baby News

by Melody Chiu and Jen Juneau @ PEOPLE.com

There’s a baby on the way for Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson!

Multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 33, and her NBA boyfriend — whom she has been dating since September 2016 — are expecting a baby together.

The baby will be the first child for Khloé. Thompson, 26, welcomed a son named Prince Oliver with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig in December 2016.

“Yes, Khloe and Tristan are expecting and they are absolutely thrilled,” a source tells PEOPLE. “This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle.

Khloé is the third Kardashian-Jenner sibling to currently be expecting a child.

Kardashian’s pregnancy comes days after sources confirmed to PEOPLE on Friday that Kylie Jenner is expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend Travis Scott. She is due in February.

Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West are expecting their third child in January after hiring a surrogate to help them expand their family.

“Things were complicated a bit by Kylie’s announcement as they don’t want to be seen as intruding on that moment for her but it is now reaching a point where Khloe doesn’t want to be openly lying to people, and just staying quiet isn’t going to work anymore,” the source continues.

“This is something Khloe has wanted for years and years and yet it’s more than that: she didn’t want it unless she was in the right relationship for it. She never let it happen with Lamar, intentionally, and she never considered it with James or French or anyone else she has seen. But this is such a wonderful moment for her: not only is she going to be a mother, she is going to be raising a child with a man she truly loves. Everyone is over the moon for them both.”

Reps for Kardashian did not respond to request for comment.

According to another insider close to the family, Kylie and Khloé are due around the same time. “They are looking at it like a unifying experience for them as sisters,” says the insider. “Getting pregnant at the same time was totally unplanned but they are really happy about it.”

News of Khloé’s first baby on the way comes months after she admitted on the show’s season 13 finale — following news that her uterus looked normal after an initial fertility scare leading her to cease taking birth control — that she and her boyfriend have “definitely about starting a family” together.

“He wants to have about five or six kids with me and that’s lovely,” said Kardashian, who initially visited the fertility specialist to see if she could serve as a potential surrogate for sister Kim. “We could start at one and we could grow from there. But now knowing I’m not on birth control is scary. It’s like a really big step.”

Kardashian and Thompson first stepped out together in early September, and have been spending much of their time together since then in Cleveland. Aside from New Year’s Eve, the pair also celebrated Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas together.

The reality star, who rang in 2017 in Miami with the Cleveland Cavaliers player and a group of friends, used Instagram to share a photo of the couple celebrating on New Year’s Eve.

“Happy New Year!!! May you always be surrounded by the love you are deserving of! May Gods blessings continue to rain on us all!” she captioned the snap of Thompson embracing her.

Though the couple isn’t engaged, Kardashian opened up to ES Magazine in April about the possibility of tying the knot with the sports star, admitting she would say yes if he popped the question — and is excited about the prospect of starting her own brood.

“I would love to have a family. We’ve talked about it,” she revealed. “He is a father, and I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father.”

Added the Revenge Body star at the time, “I definitely want to be a mom. But I don’t put the pressure on it. It’s not like, ‘The clock is ticking.’ I feel in my soul it will happen.”

“I am so relieved to know that I am able to get pregnant,” she said in her sit-down. “Now I have so many other things to think about. Do I wanna have my own baby now? I don’t know. I’m at a crossroads.”

“It’s such a great feeling that I have my happy back! It’s from a genuine place and the most peaceful place I’ve been in for longer than I can even remember,” she wrote.

“I think when you’re in love you definitely feel happy and healthy too,” Kardashian continued. “I like that my relationship is very normal and doesn’t need to be so publicized all the time.”

Taylor Swift Reveals One of the ‘Best Ideas’ That Got Left Out of ‘Look’ Video in BTS Clip (It Involves Her Cat!)

Taylor Swift Reveals One of the ‘Best Ideas’ That Got Left Out of ‘Look’ Video in BTS Clip (It Involves Her Cat!)

by Melody Chiu @ PEOPLE.com

Taylor Swift‘s music video for her smash hit single “Look What You Made Me Do” was meticulously planned down to the last detail, but in a new behind the scenes clip from the video shoot the superstar reveals one little change she would have made.

“The absolute idiocy of this scene is that we’re, like, robbing a streaming company as if they have a vault of cash and all the girls are shoving money into their really well-coordinated, primary color, awesome Gucci outfits wearing ridiculous kitten masks,” Swift says in the clip shared exclusively with PEOPLE.

Holding up her own cat mask, Swift realizes the ears don’t quite match those of her beloved feline, Olivia (named after Law & Order: SVU‘s Olivia Benson).

“We really, really should’ve stapled her ears!” exclaims Swift, who has two Scottish Fold cats. “God, you get the best ideas after it’s too late!”

The star, 27, also jokes around with her extras in the video and marvels over their costumes. “Where did we find this? It’s genius,” she says.

In the “Stream Co.” scene, Swift’s nails are painted a green shade similar to Spotify’s logo. After removing her entire catalog from Spotify in 2014 and explaining to TIME “there should be an inherent value placed on art,” Swift celebrated selling more than 10 million copies of her Grammy-winning album 1989 by making her entire back catalog available to all streaming services in June.

Swift released the first single off her new album Reputation (out Nov. 10) on Aug. 25, and the song racked up just under 8 million streams on that day alone.

From 'Fake-Trying' to Get Pregnant with her Ex to Offering to be Kim's Surrogate: Khloé Kardashian's Long Journey to Motherhood

From 'Fake-Trying' to Get Pregnant with her Ex to Offering to be Kim's Surrogate: Khloé Kardashian's Long Journey to Motherhood

by Christina Dugan @ PEOPLE.com

Being a mom has always seemed to be in the back of Khloé Kardashian’s mind, but the road to motherhood hasn’t always been easy.

On Tuesday, multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 33, and her NBA boyfriend, Tristan Thompson — whom she has been dating since September 2016 — will be expecting their first child together.

“Yes, Khloe and Tristan are expecting and they are absolutely thrilled,” a source tells PEOPLE. “This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle. Things were complicated a bit by Kylie’s announcement as they don’t want to be seen as intruding on that moment for her but it is now reaching a point where Khloe doesn’t want to be openly lying to people, and just staying quiet isn’t going to work anymore.” 

Adding, “This is something Khloe has wanted for years and years and yet it’s more than that: she didn’t want it unless she was in the right relationship for it. She never let it happen with Lamar, intentionally, and she never considered it with James or French or anyone else she has seen. But this is such a wonderful moment for her: not only is she going to be a mother, she is going to be raising a child with a man she truly loves. Everyone is over the moon for them both.”

But the journey leading up to her pregnancy was difficult, emotionally-exhausting, and frustrating at times.

In the season 9 finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kardashian admitted she “fake-tried” to get pregnant with ex-husband Lamar Odom.

“I was married, but I knew the circumstances weren’t the healthiest so I just kept pretending I was doing it,” said Kardashian, who wed Odom, 37, in 2009 after a whirlwind, month-long courtship.

“When I was doing my fertility treatments, they were more so for Lamar,” she added. “I had to stop because there was much deeper stuff that was happening in our marriage.”

Kardashian and Odom’s marriage came to an end after the former basketball player’s cheating scandal and drug relapse – causing her file for divorce in 2013.

“I knew it wasn’t the right situation to bring a child into, and I think I’ve done a lot of covering up for him — even when it made me look like I was the problem,” says Khloé in the clip. “But I was fine taking on that burden on my shoulders, because he had a lot of other deeper s— to deal with.”

Kardashian eventually moved on with rapper French Montana, but the pregnancy rumors continued to follow her.

“I feel like I’ve been pregnant for six years!” the reality star told PEOPLE in 2014. “I used to get offended, like, ‘Do I look fat today?’ or ‘Why are they saying that?’ But they just say it. Before I was like, ‘Do I have a baby bump? Is my belly sticking out?’ But no. I mean, one day the rumor will be true, I hope, but who knows? Until then, it is what it is.”

But fears of not being able to conceive continued to haunt the youngest Kardashian sister.

During last season’s KUWTK,  Kim Kardashian West took her sister to her fertility specialist to explore the possibility of Khloé becoming her surrogate — where Khloé received some unsettling news about her own fertility. 

After an unscheduled ultraound, the doctor informs Khloé that there are fewer follicles in her uterus for a woman her age.

 

“Shut the f— up,” Khloé responded. “This is definitely not all how I thought this appointment was going to go. What if I can’t get pregnant?”

But, despite the tough road, Kardashian’s dream of becoming a mom is slowly unfolding.

Kardashian’s pregnancy comes days after sources confirmed to PEOPLE on Friday that Kylie Jenner is expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend Travis Scott. She is due in February.

Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West are expecting their third child after hiring a surrogate to help them expand their family.

Fall Nail Polish Colors You Need To Stock Up On Before The Basics Get To Them


Betches

Every summer, we put on the longest disguise to force ourselves into wearing bright colors and having pastel manicures so no one knows our hearts are as cold as a frozen marg all year round. Obviously, this summer was no different. Even if you were still stuck on wearing all black everything during the hottest months of the year, you probs couldn’t resist giving in to subtle blonde highlights or a millennial pink manicure at some point.

Country Duo Big & Rich Show Us Their Softer Side and Reveal Who’s More Romantic

by Mariah Haas @ PEOPLE.com

When it comes to country duo Big & Rich’s soft side, Big Kenny and John Rich admit that their music is actually inspired by that special someone.

“A few songs in there specifically for me, I wrote ‘em for my woman,” Kenny tells PEOPLE Now. “Having someone in my life like my wife, like John’s, well you want those kind of songs that will make ‘em feel good about everything.”

As for which bandmate is more romantic?  “He’s the universal minister of love,” shares Rich. “You really can’t compete with that.”

Explains Kenny: “Well you know there’s one thing to say you’re romantic then there’s another thing to you know have someone in your life that makes you want to be romantic and my woman makes me want to be romantic.”

Specifically, Kenny, says that the duo’s new song, “Turns Me On,” off of their latest album Did It For the Party was inspired by his wife of 12 years, Christiev Carothers.

“It talks about the crazy things,” shares Kenny. “Like clothes left on the floor or brush in the sink or things like that you would think would bother me—but no. ‘It turns me on. I ain’t lying.’”

Teases Rich: “Kenny likes it.”

Along with their romantic songs, Big & Rich are also known for their more risqué tunes, including their hit party anthem, “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).”

“There’s been just hundreds of thousands of horses saved,” Kenny says of the smash single, which first debuted 13 years ago.

“Equality for equines,” explains Rich. “Equine equality.”

 “And it also somehow may have started a whole new baby boom,” adds Kenny.

And when it came to their families’ reactions to the suggestive lyrics, Rich admits they weren’t too concerned.

“Granny’s a little risqué herself,” shares Rich. “Granny will flat-out tell you.”

He continues: And my dad’s a preacher, so the first time he heard ‘Save a Horse (Ride A Cowboy),’ he gave me that: ‘You sure you ought to be…’ Course I told him, ‘You know 10 percent everything it makes goes back to the church daddy.’ And he goes, ‘As long as you’re doing that.’”

Nate Berkus Shares How His Entertaining Style Has Changed Since Welcoming Daughter Poppy

by Megan Stein @ PEOPLE.com

Nate Berkus is the expert on all things party planning. But since becoming a father to one-year-old daughter, Poppy, the designer’s go-to entertaining style has had a few changes.

“We entertain around her nap schedule now,” Berkus, artistic advisor for LG Studio, told PEOPLE at a breakfast on June 8, which celebrated the sleek line of high-end appliances he helped design.

But when Poppy isn’t snoozing, Berkus, 44, and husband Jeremiah Brent, 31, keep her busy with poolside play dates that are a far cry from a formal outdoor gathering.

“Our home is now filled with blow up toys from Target in the pool as opposed to margaritas,” Berkus said.

And the menu planning is even simpler.

“We throw food on the barbecue, we’ve actually even had a taco truck come once,” Berkus said. “We do put out snacks for the little ones, and they sit and throw them in the pool.”

Chip and Joanna Gaines Share Their Hilarious First Date Story

Chip and Joanna Gaines Share Their Hilarious First Date Story

by Megan Stein @ PEOPLE.com

Chip and Joanna Gaines are the definition of marriage goals, but their relationship didn’t necessarily have a fairytale start.

In the first chapter of The Magnolia Storyreleased as a sneak peek today, the Fixer Upper dream team spills the details of how they met — and it wasn’t exactly love at first sight.

Joanna agreed to go out on a date with Chip after meeting him and his roommate “Hot John” — who she actually tried to approach minutes earlier, but was too shy — in the waiting room of her dad’s auto shop. She had second thoughts, however, after Chip arrived an hour and a half late to pick her up.

RELATED: HGTV Star Joanna Gaines Talks Fixer Upper Fame and Work-Life Balance: ‘Family Is First’

“He didn’t apologize for being late, either. He had so much confidence. I don’t know. I can’t explain it. Only Chip could be an hour and a half late and have no one mad about it,” Joanna writes.

WATCH THIS: HGTV Stars Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri Compete to Make the Better Birdhouse

The chapter continues to describe the timeline of their relationship, which didn’t actually start until months after they first went out, when Chip (in typical guy fashion) finally called Joanna back.

“I’d made a bet with Hot John to see who could hold out the longest before calling our dates back,” Chip writes “I really wanted that fifty dollars from John! That’s the only reason I didn’t call.”

After they went out a second time, the rest was history.

Tutu-Wearing Grandma, 98, Pops Champagne and Devours Cake in Colorful Birthday Shoot: ‘She Is 100 Percent Girly-Girl’

by Jason Duaine Hahn @ PEOPLE.com

At just two years shy of becoming a centenarian, Grandma Gladys still knows how to party, and her loving granddaughter is by her side to spark up the fun.

To celebrate Gladys’ 98th birthday on September 26, her granddaughter, Shannon Weikle, treated her to a colorful photoshoot—which featured Gladys dying her hair blue, sipping Prosecco straight from the bottle and destroying a cake with her bare hands.

“A lot of my friends are having babies and are either doing newborn photoshoots or smash cakes for their child’s first birthday,” Weikle, 29, of Bowie, Maryland, tells PEOPLE. “She’s the person I do all these fun things with, and that’s where the idea came in, and I wanted to do something special for her.”

Weikle has done special things to mark her grandmother’s birthday over the years, such as getting matching maple leaf tattoos on their wrists when Gladys turned 95 in 2014—which almost didn’t happen because the shop needed a copy of Gladys’ ID to prove she was over 18, but she didn’t have one (fortunately, they found other means). They’ve also discussed going big for her 100th birthday: for that milestone, Weikle is currently trying to convince her grandmother to go skydiving. While Gladys needs some more time to come around to that idea, she was totally game for a photoshoot where she could get dolled up.

 

“She is 100 percent girly-girl,” Weikle explains. “She loves to look nice and get dressed up, I thought the photoshoot would be a fun way for her to commemorate the occasion.”

But “feisty” Gladys wasn’t too keen when it came to dying her silver hair blue for the shoot.

“I came over and I showed her the dye, and we just went to work,” Weikle says. “When she saw herself, she was mortified!”

Still, Gladys remained a trooper and went through with her granddaughter’s plan.

The photos, taken by Maryland photographer Cara Lynn McGilvrey, show a beaming Gladys surrounded by green forestry and colorful balloons, and sipping a little wine from a glass that reads, “98 and looking for a date.” Well, in truth, she sipped more than just a little wine.

“I thought wine might be good because it would calm her nerves since she was a little nervous about getting her picture taken,” Weikle says. “We poured her a glass of wine to sip on and take pictures with, and then she just chugged it—she was pretty excited when we drove home!”

When McGilvrey posted the photo set to her Facebook page, they received a lot of attention: the post has garnered more than 16,000 likes and 3,000 comments, and many commenters expressed that they, too, wanted to put on similar shoots for their grandmothers.

Weikle says Gladys lights up when she hears about all of the attention she’s been getting, and they are both thankful the response has been nothing but positive.

“I’ll read her the comments and she’ll just giggle and can’t believe so many people care about what she’s doing,” Weikle says. “She thought people would think she had gone crazy. Hopefully, this inspires people to realize they are never too old to do anything or to enjoy life.”

Khloé Kardashian and Sister Kylie Jenner Are Both Due Around the Same Time, Source Says

Khloé Kardashian and Sister Kylie Jenner Are Both Due Around the Same Time, Source Says

by Melody Chiu and Karen Mizoguchi @ PEOPLE.com

For Khloé Kardashian, 33, and Kylie Jenner, 20, the pregnancy journey will be one taken together — and they could not be happier about it.

“Kylie is over the moon about her pregnancy. Khloé and Kylie are both due around the same time. They are approximately four months along,” a source tells PEOPLE.

“Kylie loves how close-knit her family is and is thrilled to bring that to her own family. She feels more prepared than ever, especially since she will be sharing this journey with Khloé,” the insider continues, adding, “They are looking at it like a unifying experience for them as sisters.”

Multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE on Tuesday that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and her NBA boyfriend — whom she has dated since September 2016 — are expecting their first child.

“Yes, Khloé and Tristan are expecting and they are absolutely thrilled,” a separate source told PEOPLE. “This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle. Things were complicated a bit by Kylie’s announcement as they don’t want to be seen as intruding on that moment for her but it is now reaching a point where Khloé doesn’t want to be openly lying to people, and just staying quiet isn’t going to work anymore.” 

The baby will be the first child for Khloé. Thompson, 26, welcomed a son named Prince Oliver with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig in December 2016.

Khloé’s pregnancy comes days after sources confirmed to PEOPLE on Friday that Kylie is expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend Travis Scott.

“Getting pregnant at the same time was totally unplanned but they are really happy about it,” the source says. “Kris is trying to be supportive of Kylie even though she’s worried. But she particularly loves Travis and the entire family has known him for a very long time so they are more comfortable with the situation.”

And there will be one more baby joining the Kardashian-Jenner family.

Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West are expecting their third child after hiring a surrogate to help them expand their family. The couple is already parents to 4-year-old daughter North West and 21-month-old son Saint West.

“This is something Khloé has wanted for years and years and yet it’s more than that: she didn’t want it unless she was in the right relationship for it. She never let it happen with Lamar, intentionally, and she never considered it with James or French or anyone else she has seen,” a source previously told PEOPLE about Khloé’s marriage to Lamar Odom and her past romances with James Harden and French Montana.

“This is such a wonderful moment for her: not only is she going to be a mother, she is going to be raising a child with a man she truly loves. Everyone is over the moon for them both.”
