Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Will Support Biden If He's the Nominee

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believes in her heart of hearts Bernie Sanders is the guy to beat Trump — that said … she’ll support Joe Biden if he’s the one who takes on Trump.

We got the Congresswoman in D.C. Wednesday — after Biden cleaned up on Super Tuesday — and asked her straight-up … will she support the guy if he wins the Democratic nomination come July, despite being a Sanders supporter and seemingly immovable.

Watch … AOC says she would, but might need to hold her nose a little. Fact is … she says she’ll always support the party, but notes JB is a thing of the past — and Bernie is the future.

Unable to render YouTube Video.

For her it’s pretty simple — AOC says Bernie’s message and platform is very clear and resonates with working-class people. Meanwhile, Biden’s platform seems to just be … beat Trump? That’s not good enough for her, and she thinks many feel the same.

Doesn’t sound like she’s going the #BernieorBust route though, which is an encouraging sign of unity within the Democratic ranks. As for a possible running mate … she says pump the brakes.

See the Harry Potter Cast Grow Up Right Before Your Eyes

It’s been more than 20 years since the Harry Potter franchise was born, but the magic of Harry, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley still lingers in every person that read and fell in love with the series. And while we’ll forever wish we could be a part of the Gryffindor trio, none of it would have come to life without author J.K. Rowling. Over the course of 10 years, the cast and writer bonded while filming the eight movies, and in turn, the three kids basically grew up in the public eye. And despite it all being in the past, the wizarding world is still very much present. In addition to the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them spinoff film series, you can also see what a grown-up Harry is doing in the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play. Take a walk (or flight, by broom, of course) down memory lane with a look back at how far the cast has come!

These Videos Of Kylie Teaching Stormi About Her Birthstone Are So Sweet

Stormi Webster is learning something new every day — and melting hearts all over the world in the process. Kylie Jenner is not only nailing motherhood, but the makeup mogul is quite the pro when it comes to capturing sweet moments with her daughter on film. These videos of Kylie Jenner teaching Stormi about her birthstone are beyond precious.

After embracing a beautiful California day poolside together at their Calabasas home, Jenner and Stormi ventured out to a nearby farmer’s market, where they continued to enjoy the outdoors. Jenner’s excitement came in the form of street tacos, while Stomi held tight to a purple Amethyst tree that they picked up during their time there.

In the first IG Story, Stormi was completely distracted by the fact she could no longer hear the live farmer’s market music. "Where’s the music?" Stormi asked, to which Jenner had to inform her had stopped playing.

Conversation then turned to Stormi’s newfound prized possession she was still holding close.

"You know that’s amethyst?” Jenner asked Stormi, who was seated on a concrete step. The tot confidently replied, "Yeah," to her mom who continued to explain to Stormi that "an amethyst is your [birth]stone.”

Check out the videos below to hear the entire conversation between Stormi and Jenner.

Earlier in the day, Stormi showed off her inquisitive side as she and Jenner chatted about the noises that could be heard outside their house. "What’s that noise?" Stormi asked Jenner, who couldn’t help but chuckle in awe, multiple times, proving she’s quite the conversationalist.

Stormi has no shortage of adventures in her life. Days ago, the toddler joined Jenner and her gal pals for a short getaway. During the trip, Stormi took in ocean views and even got a chance to take a fun boat ride. Thanks to Jenner, fans are able to follow along with their mother-daughter outings, which are always adorable.

Ariana Grande: Spotted Kissing Mystery Man Amid Breakup with Mikey Foster!

Ariana Grande is easily one of the busiest stars in the game.

From a global tour to dropping albums, to shutting down the red carpet at the Grammys, she still somehow has time to generate all the buzz around her *very existent* love life. 

The most recent buzz comes from her reported breakup with Social House singer Mikey Foster and her alleged makeout sesh with ~mystery man~ at a bar. 

We repeat: Ari is a busy! busy! girl!  

Late Saturday night, the pop sensation was apparently spotted making out with an unrecognizable man (meaning he is not an A-list celebrity… maybe not even a C-lister?) at Bar Louie in Northridge, CA. 

According to TMZ, she “rolled into the gastropub around 1 AM with a crew of friends” and it wasn’t long before she started kissing one of the guys among her friend group in a booth.

The group only stayed for about 30 minutes, and apparently, Ari even asked the DJ to switch up the music after “God Is a Woman” started playing. Yikes. 

This report comes off speculation about Ariana’s recent break up with Mikey Foster, who she has been dating for about 8 months.

The two sparked romance rumors after making out in their steamy music video for “Boyfriend” back in Aug. 2019, and after they were spotted holding hands at Disneyland together. 

A source close to the duo recently told HollywoodLife that they called things off due to rumors swirling that they started dating back in June 2019.

“Ariana and Mikey were a fling that was fun but it wasn’t ever going to lead into something super serious,” the insider explained.

“Ariana really liked Mikey, but she wasn’t head over heels over him.”

“They were just enjoying their chemistry and tried to see if it could be more. It ended up not being what they had thought would happen and they are totally cool about it,” the source added.

Luckily, it sounds like the two are still totally amicable! 

“They had fun and they are friends. No real drama to worry about. Hearts aren’t broken.”

It is also rumored that Ariana’s PDA filled night in the valley may have led to her split with Mikey.

“Mikey realized things were officially done between him and Ariana when he saw those photos of her making out with another guy,” a second source shared. 

“Mikey has no hard feelings though and he cares about Ariana no matter what.”

“They’ve been friends for years and he will still work with her because he knows they make great music together. There’s no hard feelings on his end and it’s all positive vibes.” added the insider. 

It’s all too blurry ATM — we’re not sure whether Ari has a new BF, a fling, or just found herself a random makeout buddy for the night? 

But one thing is pretty clear, she is having fun. 

Of course, we stan.

Love Island’s Shaughna has awkward run-in with ex Callum and new girlfriend Molly during event in London

Love Island’s Shaughna Phillips had an awkward run-in with ex Callum Jones and his new girlfriend Molly Smith as they attended the same event in London on Wednesday.

The former couple, who were together on the show before she was savagely dumped during the Casa Amor twist, saw each other for the first time outside of the show.

Shaughna, 25, put on a defiant display as she entered the building in London just minutes before a loved-up Molly and Callum arrived hand-in-hand.

  • Love Island's Connor Durman addresses rumours he's split from Sophie Piper

  • Love Island winners Paige Turley and Finn Tapp pose for stunning new loved-up photo

Looking stunning in a tan-coloured coat paired with a white hoodie and jeans, Shaughna flashed her stomach in the cropped ensemble while adding a Gucci handbag and aviator-style sunglasses to her laid-back look.

Meanwhile, Callum and Molly couldn’t keep their hands off each other as they posed for pictures, with the blonde beauty sporting knee-high snakeskin boots and a cream coat while cosying up to her new beau.

It comes after Callum opened up on his future with Molly outside of the villa after being voted off the show shortly after the Casa Amor recoupling.



What are the Love Island 2020 stars' real jobs, from a coffee bean salesman to a beauty consultant?

Speaking in his exit interview after leaving the show, Callum insisted he made the right decision by ditching Shaughna.

When asked if he thought his head would turn on the show, he explained: “I never thought that deep into it. I thought I’ll just chill out and enjoy it. Then I brought Molly back – so a bit different to what I thought would happen.”

He added when asked if he was worried about coupling up with Molly because of Shaughna: “As bad as it sounds, I didn’t really think about anything else.


“I knew I was happy, so I just went with that decision. It’s not nice for Shaughna. At the end of the day, we were all in there to find something and I’ve found it.”

Callum also added when asked if he had any regrets in the villa: “No regrets – absolutely zero regrets.”

  • Love Island winner Paige Turley enjoys girls night out with pals Shaughna and twins Jess and Eve

The reality star also is keen to keep things going with stunning Molly outside of the show, saying they have plans to walk their dogs together on their first date.

“Yeah – we’ve already spoken about it. We’ve got dates planned and everything,” he explained.

"First thing we want to do is walk the dogs – we’ve both got dogs. I’ve got two Pugs and Molly’s got a Pomeranian.”

Loose Women star Ruth Langsford points out that she has lipstick on her blazer live on air

Loose Women panellist Ruth Langsford surprised viewers of the show on Wednesday afternoon when she confessed to a fashion and beauty mistake she’d made earlier. The popular presenter was wearing a stylish light green jacket but admitted that she had got a little smear of lipstick on the front! Laughing as she welcomed viewers back to the show, the mum-of-one said: “Before you say, yes I have got lipstick on my jacket if anyone else is writing in. Happened just before the show, didn’t have time to get it off.”

WATCH: Ruth Langsford points out her fashion faux pas on Loose Women

Ruth is married to fellow presenter Eamonn Holmes, with whom she co-hosts ITV morning show This Morning on Fridays and during school holidays. The couple got together in 1997 and married in 2010. They share a son, Jack, who turned 18 last week. The 59-year-old revealed on Tuesday that her husband had embarrassed their son on his special birthday after he shared a photo of himself with Jack to Instagram. Speaking on Loose Women, she said: “Jack was a bit like, ‘Dad, you didn’t even ask me if you could post that!’ Not only does he have one parent on the television but he has two parents on the television, and as a teenager, you can be so easily embarrassed by your parents.”

Ruth also works with husband Eamonn Holmes on This Morning 

Ruth also admitted that she had embarrassed Jack in the past, saying: “I thought we were really great mates and when he was younger we used to have a lot of fun together, and we used to sing in the car. And I remember the moment – it was so stinging to me – we were in the supermarket and a song came on, and I always used to pretend to not know the names of the songs because he used to think it was really funny. And it was Rizzle Kicks, so I went: ‘Oh Jack! It’s our favourite, Twizzle Sticks,’ and his face… It was like the day before he found it funny, then he turned 13.”

The star also shared that while she was invited to her son’s birthday party, there were some ground rules. “He said, you can come but don’t speak to anybody,” the presenter laughed.

Amber Blasts Jessica as “Sheisty B-tch” in Explosive Love Is Blind Clip

Love may be blind, according to both an old adage and a relatively new Netflix series, but it can also be downright mean, cruel and ugly.

At least those in the pursuit of love, that is.

Indeed, Netflix has released a sneak peek at the upcoming reunion for this controversial dating show experiment… as Amber Pike takes center stage in the clip, hurling some rather unkind words in the direction of Jessica Batten based on how she behaved during the season.

You see, at one point in the pods (before the couples had met each other), Jessica was certain she was getting engaged to Matt Barnett, until he suddenly revealed he wasn’t actually all that into her.

How did Jessica respond?

She switched to Mark Cuevas, prompting these two to have a rocky relationship over the course of the series, with Batten often looking back at what she thought she could have had with Barnett, especially after she finally met him out of the pods and continued to try to flirt with him.

Are you following along?

Barnett, for her part, was happily engaged to Amber — they were one of two couples to actually go through with their weddings at the end of the season.

Jessica decided not to marry Mark, and left the show single.

This all brings up to the video featured here.

In the explosive clip, Amber lets Jessica know exactly how she felt about her Barnett-adjacent behavior, especially after she asked Barnett about his relationship with Jessica and he swore it was no big deal.

“As far as I was concerned, that [relationship] was nothing after the fact,” she says, adding in amazing elaboration:

“So to see her throwing herself at him in Mexico? Bitch, you’re sheisty. You’re so fake, coming to my face like we were cool. You are so fake.

“I think you’re a very disingenuine person, and you know what? I hope seeing this, you do grow from it, because that is not what the world needs, is women that go behind people’s backs like that.

“You were engaged to another man that you were leading on. He was engaged. He made his choice.”

Jessica clearly doesn’t disagree with what Amber’s analysis here, although we don’t get to hear her response in the clip.

For that, fans will need to wait until the Love Is Blind reunion is uploaded to the official Netflix page on Thursday, March 5.

For an early look ahead, however, check out the footage now!

Drake called his baby-mama Sophie Brussaux a ‘fluke’ in a new song

In 2018, a rap beef exploded all over the media and social media. Drake and Pusha T were engaged in some random beef at first, with Drake seemingly going after Pusha out of nowhere. Then Pusha thought about it for a minute, went back to the studio and came out with “The Story of Adidon,” which escalated the beef to next-level man drama. Pusha revealed that Drake had a secret baby-mama and secret baby (which had long been rumored) and that Drake was waiting to reveal this whole-ass child for promotional purposes. Pusha also called Drake a deadbeat dad and something about how Drake made a fuss about paternity tests. The child was Drake’s and Drake took a while to give his baby-mama any child support, basically.

I shared my theory of how Pusha played Drake and Drake fell into his trap. I also believed the rumors that rap heavyweights (the godfathers) had to get involved and make peace between Pusha and Drake so the war didn’t escalate even further. Drake eventually came clean (lyrically) about his son and Drake has said very little about Pusha T since then. But… Drake will say some sh-t about his baby-mama, I guess.

Some fans are in their feelings over new Drake lyrics. On Saturday, the Canadian rapper, 33, debuted two songs as a surprise to his loyal listeners, one called “Chicago Freestyle” and the other “When to Say When,” the latter of which featured one particular line that listeners took issue with.

“Baby mama fluke, but I love her for who she is,” he raps in the track, referencing Sophie Brussaux, with whom he shares 2-year-old son Adonis.

Music fans sounded off on Twitter, sharing their reactions to the seemingly dismissive lyric.

[From People]

Most of the tweets about this are too much to embed! But I like the one below, because it summarizes my feelings. Sophie kept Drake’s secret, she calmly supported herself while pregnant and in Adonis’s first months, and waited for Drake’s paternity tests to come through. Drake wanted to have unprotected sex with a woman without any consequences and he thinks SHE is a “fluke.” Bruh. Maybe this sh-t is a lot darker though – maybe he considers Sophie a “fluke” because she’s NOT some 17-year-old pop star or 15-year-old actress. Maybe he considers Sophie a fluke because he didn’t groom her from a young age. Ugh. God this is gross.

'The Young Turks' Founder Cenk Uygur Loses Bid for Katie Hill's Congressional Seat

Democratic Assemblywoman Christy Smith and Republican defense contractor Mike Garcia appear headed for a runoff

There’s less than a year to go until the 2020 presidential election, but the competition to potentially replace Donald Trump in the White House

has begun to diminish as more Democratic candidates drop out of the race.

There’s a lot to keep track of, but we’re here to help. Here’s TheWrap’s list of everyone who is running for president so far — and who has dropped out.

  • Joe Biden – Democratic Party 

    Entered Race: April 25, 2019 

    The former Obama VP was a late entry to the race, formally declaring his run for the presidency on April 25. But he’s long been a presumed frontrunner, leading many early polls. This is his third presidential run, and for months he’s been telling anyone who’ll listen that he’d be the most qualified candidate for the job. He’s also already been under scrutiny over criticism about his behavior with women, prompting him to post a video promising he’d be “more mindful and respectful” of a woman’s “personal space.”

    Biden has also been prone to embarrassing slips of the tongue, among them placing the assassinations of RFK and MLK in “the late ’70s,” mistaking his campaign’s text number for a website, waxing nostalgic about his friendships with Senate segregationists, and saying “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

  • Elizabeth Warren – Democratic Party 

    Entered Race: Feb. 9, 2019 

    The Massachusetts Senator formally announced her candidacy on Feb. 9 at a rally in her home state, and shortly after followed up with a tweet that read: “I believe in an America of opportunity.

    Entered Race: July 9, 2019 

    Dropped Out: Feb. 29, 2020

    The billionaire and climate change activist entered the race in July, saying in a video “if you think that there’s something absolutely critical, try as hard as you can and let the chips fall where they may.

    Dropped Out: December 3, 2019

    The California senator announced her bid for the presidency on Martin Luther King Jr. Day,  Jan. 21, while appearing on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” As a possible indication of her chances, her January CNN town hall was the network’s highest rated single presidential candidate town hall ever. Harris is pro Medicare-for-all and raising teacher pay.

    Harris came out of the gate strong with a solid showing at the first debate, but failed to carry that momentum. Reports of staff mismanagement and fundraising challenges led to her to suspend her candidacy in early December.

    In January the former Starbucks CEO expressed initial interest in running. In August, Schultz reportedly suspended his campaigning until after Labor Day, citing medical issues. In September, Schultz cited those issues and more in a letter on his website as reasons he had to take himself out of the running.
