people power

This week showed the true power of the human spirit in the most unexpected way. When Survivor contestant Luke Toki, who is arguably the best player in the franchise’s history, was voted out just short of the finale, fans of the show banded together to start GoFundMe pages for the family man, who has two sons with autism and a daughter with cystic fibrosis. At the time of press, the leading fundraising page was at $230,000 – and counting.

Authorities have…

Posh’s family even managed to steal the spotlight away from Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, with whom they shared the front row during the event at the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Soccer great David couldn’t wipe the smile off his face with Harper sitting on his lap and his fashionable family by his side. But it wasn’t just the Beckhams making waves at the annual fashion event. Big name celebs…

IN THE WEEKS SINCE FILING FOR DIVORCE from Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth has been keeping to himself, spending time with family and friends in Australia and “taking each day as it comes”, a source tells E!

ON SEPTEMBER 13, ACTRESS Felicity Huffman, 56, was sentenced to 14 days in prison, 250 hours of community service and fined $44,000 for facilitating cheating on her daughter’s SAT test.

Trying to be a good mother doesn’t excuse this.” A source close to Huffman’s team tells WHO, “She is not disappointed or relieved about the outcome. She is contrite and humbled and accepts the outcome. Felicity knows she has a lot of work ahead of her to heal her family and win back the trust of the public, her colleagues and friends.” Lori Loughlin, 55, who has also been implicated in the scandal and, along…
