    • Trump's Russia scandal takes an unexpected turn

      On Friday afternoon, FBI Director James Comey delivered a classified, hour-long briefing to the Senate Intelligence Committee on the Russia scandal, and soon after, the Senate Intelligence Committee sent “formal requests to more than a dozen organizations, agencies and individuals, asking them to preserve all materials related to the committee’s investigation” into the controversy. We don’t know much about how the briefing went – committee members were tight-lipped following Comey’s presentation – though Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) tweeted late Friday that he’s “now very confident” that the committee will conduct “thorough bipartisan investigation” into Russia’s “interference and influence.” Reading

      (CNN)Melania Trump is beginning to forge her own path as America's first lady, assembling a team of aides and advisers. But the name of one longtime confidante, and perhaps her most trusted friend, won't be announced with a news release or statement or a new title: her sister, Ines Knauss. Knauss, Trump's older sister, lives just blocks from Trump Tower in the Trump Park Avenue property, public records confirm. She was Trump's maid of honor at her 2005 Palm Beach wedding, People magazine reported at the time. And the first lady called Knauss "an incredible woman and a friend" in her July speech at the Republican National Convention. And the sister of the famously private Slovenian-born first

    • All Of Emma Watson’s Looks From The Beauty And The Beast Press Tour (3 photos)

      It’s only T minus 25 days until we get to watch Emma Watson dazzle us on the big screen as Belle in Disney’s new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. We’ve already gotten sneak peeks of how the actress looks wearing that iconic yellow dress and—allegedly—her rose-covered fairy tale wedding gown, and while we’re admittedly obsessed with the epic costume design in the film, we’re equally excited about the prospect of seeing Watson’s personal style throughout the movie’s press tour. Given the fact that she’s been a muse for major designers and is regularly at the top of best-dressed lists for awards shows and other red carpet events, we know she’s going to serve us some seriously good looks. That said, we’re keeping track of all Emma’s fashions leading up to the film’s release on March 17th, so check back often to see her latest looks as well as what designers she’s wearing.

    • Vince McMahon fired The Rock before Raw went on the air

      We knew The Rock would be appearing at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California to do something for the crowd before Monday Night Raw went on the air this evening, because he told us. And he did just that, hyping up the crowd while letting them know to stick around after the show to be a part of filming a movie he’s working on. You knew they would run an angle, though. Sure enough, after he was done doing his thing, Vince McMahon showed up to fire him (the first video cuts off right as the firing is happening, the second is right after it happened): Hopefully WWE releases a better video later. We’ll pass it along if they do.

    • One month of Trump: What voters think – and why that matters

      After 30 days in office President Trump has done one thing for sure: He’s polarized American voters more than any US chief executive of the last 30 years. Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents loathe his performance, per approval polls. This is a reminder that most of the people who put Trump in office are content to wait and see how his policies develop.
