Jordyn Woods Says Her World Came ‘Crumbling Down’ After the Tristan Thompson Cheating Scandal

Over one year later, Jordyn Woods reflected on the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal and how it shaped her as a person. 

In February 2019, the model was at the center of a Kardashian controversy after it was alleged she was spotted getting cozy with Khloé Kardashian’s boyfriend at a party. Woods later confirmed Thompson did kiss her on the lips during an emotional appearance on Red Table Talk.

In a new tell-all interview posted on September 26, Woods discussed everything from dealing with public shame to pushing people away because she “couldn’t trust anyone” in a new episode of the YouTube series Now With Natalie. During the 30-minute conversation, she recalled feeling like the whole world was “crumbling down” on her.

“I deleted everything off of my phone. I wouldn’t respond to anyone. I responded to about two people,” she told host and friend Natalie Manuel Lee, per People. “I pushed people away that probably shouldn’t have been pushed away but I just couldn’t trust anyone. Everything in my life changed.”

Woods also said that the aftermath of the scandal was “dark,” adding that she didn’t know how to feel after she realized the life she knew—presumably, the one she shared with BFF Kylie Jenner—was gone.

“I remember just sitting in a very dark place. I had my family to talk to, I had you to talk to, but I just felt like I had no one,” she explained. “You take everything you think you know for a whole decade, the people you think you know, the life you think you know, everything that you’ve grown up doing and you take it all away from someone. I didn’t even know how to feel.”

“Looking at the situation, ‘Okay what did I do, what role did I play in this, how was I responsible, how can I be held accountable, how can I take responsibility for what happened?’ Things happen and that’s what makes us human,” Woods continued. “But just acceptance and accountability and responsibility. I feel like people in this generation lack accountability and when you can’t accept what you’ve done or you can’t accept that, then you can’t heal from.”

Woods seems to view the entire ordeal as a pivotal moment for personal growth. “When your whole world feels like it’s crumbling down, everything you thought you knew, it’s really to be rebuilt again but much stronger,” she added. “The amount of strength I’ve gained in this year alone, nothing else could have shaped me to the person I am today.”

Watch the full interview, below.

The same day this interview went live, Jordyn Woods made things official with her new boyfriend, basketball player Karl-Anthony Towns. “I found you, then I found me,” she wrote in the caption of three vacation pics with her new man. 

It seems she’s ready to put the past behind her and look forward.

Kate Middleton and Prince William Shared New Photos of Their Kids in Color-Coordinated Outfits

There’s nothing we love more than new photos of Kate Middleton and Prince William’s kids, so imagine our excitement when Kensington Palace shared new pics of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis in color-coordinated looks.

Prince William’s 38th birthday was the last time we’ve seen photos of the siblings all together, and yes, they’ve grown up a lot since then…especially Prince Louis. On Saturday, September 26, Kensington Palace shared the new photos on Instagram after the Cambridges met with famed television broadcaster and environmentalist, Sir David Attenborough.

The pictures were taken earlier this week “in the gardens of Kensington Palace, after The Duke and Sir David attended an outdoor screening of Sir David’s upcoming feature film David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet,”  a new documentary which will premiere on Netflix on October 4.

The royals also shared a shot of Prince William with his two sons after “Sir David gave Prince George a tooth from a giant shark,” according to the post’s caption.

“Sir David found the tooth on a family holiday to Malta in the late 1960s, embedded in the island’s soft yellow limestone which was laid down during the Miocene period some 23 million years ago,” Kensington Palace noted. “Carcharocles is believed to have grown to 15 metres in length, which is about twice the length of the Great White, the largest shark alive today.”

Okay, but can we talk about how big Prince Louis is getting?! For reference, here are the photos Kate Middleton took of the two-year-old just this past June:

Since becoming a mom, Kate Middleton has become somewhat of the official family photographer, sharing numerous professional shots of her husband and children. The duchess often uses the photos to mark special occasions, like birthdays, as well as seemingly candid cute moments, like the ones of Prince William and Prince Charles on Father’s Day 2020 or Princess Charlotte smelling flowers back in February.

Recently, the Duchess of Cambridge found another sweet way to honor her children. Just last week, she was photographed wearing a gold charm necklace, complete with the initials G, C, and L. How much sweeter can one family get?

Trump Set Nominates Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court

President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court, multiple outlets confirmed Friday evening. 

According to The New York Times, Trump will make his official announcement on Saturday. The president reportedly met with Judge Barrett at the White House earlier this week. The Times reported, the president was “impressed” with Barrett, who is a favored choice among conservatives. 

At just 48 years old, if confirmed, Barrett will become the youngest justice on the Supreme Court. 

“She was the plan all along,” a former senior administration official shared with CNN. “She’s the most distinguished and qualified by traditional measures. She has the strongest support among the legal conservatives who have dedicated their lives to the court. She will contribute most to the court’s jurisprudence in the years and decades to come.”  

As Glamour previously reported, Barrett was a former clerk to the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Trump also nominated her for the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. In that time, the Associated Press reported, Barrett has authored around 100 opinions and, as the AP noted, “several telling dissents in which Barrett displayed her clear and consistent conservative bent.”

In 2016, while still campaigning for the presidency, Trump promised to appoint “pro-life” judges if elected. And, if Barrett’s nomination goes through, he will be fulfilling that promise. Barrett, a devout Catholic, has referred to abortion as “always immoral.” She also believes that life begins at conception. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean she will overturn Roe v. Wade. At least not in its totality.

“I don’t think that abortion, or the right to abortion would change. I think some of the restrictions would change,” Barrett said during a discussion at Jacksonville University in 2016. “States have imposed regulations on abortion clinics, and I think the question is, ‘How much freedom the court is willing to let states have in regulating abortion?'” 

In the discussion, she specifically pointed to “very late-term abortions,” and restrictions on clinics as potential changes to the law. She added, hypothetically, if Roe were revoked, “abortion would be neither legal nor illegal throughout the United States… [I]nstead, the states and Congress would be free to ban, protect or regulate abortion as they saw fit.” 

In 2013, Barrett also said she believes it is “very unlikely at this point” that the Supreme Court is going to overturn Roe v. Wade. In her confirmation hearing to the 7th circuit, Barrett said she did not believe it was “lawful for a judge to impose personal opinions, from whatever source they derive, upon the law,” SCOTUS Blog reported. She additionally pledged that her personal views on abortion “or any other question will have no bearing on the discharge of my duties as a judge.” 

Still, women’s reproductive rights groups are worried. In 2017, Planned Parenthood even condemned her nomination to the Seventh Circuit, writing in a statement:

The idea that Amy Coney Barrett would be a fair and impartial judge on issues of reproductive health is ludicrous. We call on every United States senator to uphold a fundamental standard: If you oppose Roe v. Wade and would empower employers to deny women access to birth control, you should not sit on the bench. ​Planned Parenthood urges senators to reject the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Seventh Circuit. Of course, aides in the White House cautioned The New York Times that this is Trump we are talking about, so until he officially announces Amy Coney Barrett as his choice on Saturday, he could always change his mind.

Demi Lovato’s Ex-Fiancé, Max Ehrich, Says He Found Out About Their Breakup ‘Through a Tabloid’

In the original breakup announcement, a source told People that the breakup was a “tough decision,” while implying there was a mutual agreement. 

“It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers,” the source said. ”They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together.”

However, just a day after they announced their split, new reports surfaced that suggested there were “red flags” and trust issues within the relationship. “Demi and Max were basically together 24/7 for months,” one source told People. “They lived in a bubble with zero stress, and everything was just fun. Now they are both working and are on separate coasts. There has been a lot of tension, and Demi left him to get a clear head.”

@ddlovato

Demi Lovato hasn’t directly addressed the split or any of the fallout, but she did post an Instagram Story of her own this Saturday. “Good morning,” she wrote over and image of burning sage and what appear to be essential oils, with the message.

Hopefully, this will be as messy as this breakup gets. 

Yara Shahidi Will Play Tinkerbell in a Live-Action Peter Pan—and Fans are Going Wild

Yara Shahidi, the Black-ish and Grown-ish star that still found time to enroll at Harvard, is adding yet another impressive line to add to her sterling résumé: playing Tinkerbell in Disney’s live-action version of Peter Pan. Clap if you believe!

On September 25, the Twitter account for Grown-ish shared the major casting news for the upcoming Peter Pan and Wendy movie. “Sprinkle that fairy dust all over this news,” they tweeted. “@YaraShahidi as Tinkerbell in @disney’s upcoming live-action #PeterPanandWendy.”

Within hours of the announcement, Twitter users were posting fan art of Shahidi and elated messages. With Chloe x Halle’s Halle Bailey cast as Ariel in the Little Mermaid remake, many on Twitter are excited to see more diverse representation in the Disney catalog. 

“We’re getting Yara Shahidi as Tinkerbell AND Halle Bailey as ariel???? THIS IS WHAT I LIKE TO SEE,” one user wrote. 

There were also, of course, plenty of people asking why Disney continues to remake its own classics, which is a valid question…but back to Yara Shahidi! Besides the creative team and cast, which includes Jude Law as Captain Hook, not much is known about the project. For instance, will Tinkerbell talk in this version, or will Shahidi play the role through attitude alone, like her cartoon counterpart? 

Shahidi herself has yet to comment on the big news but consistently uses her platform to advocate for diversity and social justice issues. During last weekend’s Emmy Awards, she said, “The stories we tell on TV shape how we see ourselves in others, and how we are seen can many times determine how we are treated,” according to BuzzFeed. “The dream of television is the freedom to live our full and nuanced lives outside of boxes and assumptions. We continue to strive for a more complete definition of inclusivity.”

Here’s to a pixie step toward that goal!

Charlize Theron Just Shared a Rare Photo With Her Daughters

Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron doesn’t typically post pictures of her kids, but when National Daughters Day came around, she just couldn’t resist. 

The Old Guard star took to Instagram on Friday to share four photos of her two daughters, five-year-old August and eight-year-old Jackson. “My heart belongs to these two beautiful powerhouses. I will never be the same. Happy #NationalDaughtersDay ❤️,” she wrote on the post, which already has over half a million likes. Other celebrities including director Ava DuVernay, Lilly Singh, Chelsea Handler, Awkwafina, and January Jones commented on the post with heart emojis and well wishes.

While Theron keeps her family life relatively private, she’s always been open about the ways she is supporting and raising her two girls. In 2019, she revealed that her older daughter Jackson is transgender and has identified as a girl since she was three. “I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive,” Theron told The Daily Mail at the time. “My job as a parent is to celebrate them and to love them and to make sure that they have everything they need in order to be what they want to be, and I will do everything in my power for my kids to have that right and to be protected within that.”

She’s also intentional in talking to her daughters about racism. In July, she told People that both of her girls are aware of the current movement against police brutality and are eager to get involved. 

Charlize Theron also spoke about the need for more Black stories and building a more inclusive entertainment industry. “I’m a mom to two small Black girls and I want them to grow up in a world where they see themselves, where there is an awareness that they can be whomever they want to be because they see it,” the Bombshell star said on Variety‘s ”The Big Ticket” podcast in July 2020, per People. “I want to surround them in a world where they feel they belong and they can shine and they can live to their full potential.”
