rs_600x600-170622082915-600.Gigi-Hadid-Rust-Suit.jl_.062217.jpg

Alert the press: Gigi Hadid‘s Nomia NYC rust-colored cropped jeans are on sale.

Not only are they the perfect style (gotta love a cropped straight leg), but they also offer your wardrobe something regular denim can’t: color. Its neutral wash really elevates the look—though altogether it’s still pretty casual, the shade and monochrome nature of the outfit takes it up a notch in terms of formality and maturity.

The exact pair Gigi’s wearing might still be too expensive (they were $375, now $263), but there are plenty of other, similar options out there if you want to pull off this ensemble. And they’re waiting for you below.

Dress them up or dress them down.

Either way you’re good to go.

Nicki Minaj’s Ex Accuses Meek Mill Of Sending Goons At Him: “You Are The Biggest P*ssy On This Planet – You Still Running From The F*cking Game” [Video]

Screen-Shot-2017-06-24-at-8.35.55-AM.jpg

New York rapper Safaree Samuels is recovering following an alleged attack from Meek Mill‘s camp. The hip-hop artist has accused Meek of sending goons his way for some sucker punches.

A new clip has gone viral of Safaree going off on Meek and challenging him to a face-to-face.

Meek Milly has since come forward to deny any involvement in the Safaree attack.

Last year, Safaree said Meek allegedly sparked his split from rap star Nicki Minaj.

When asked about this, SB revealed that The Game was onto something with that post. “[Meek] definitely was a big part as to why me and Nicki broke up,” he admitted. As far as the beef goes, Samuels says “The Game is a beast.” He adds: “‘Pest Control’ was one of the craziest diss records of all time in diss history. There’s nothing to make of it. It’s not even on no bias sh*t.” (Rap-Up)

Weeks prior, West Coast rapper Game claimed Meek hollered at Nicki while Safaree slept with other women on the side.

Here's Why Kristin Cavallari and Jessie James Decker Need to Be BFFs

rs_600x600-170623131535-600-kristin-cavallari-jessie-james-decker.jpg

We’re shipping a new relationship, but it’s not the romantic kind…Kristin Cavallari and Jessie James Decker need to become best friends.

If you’re currently scratching your head, wondering where we came up with this idea, it’s actually not as random as it may seem.

Jessie’s hubby, Eric Decker, just signed with the Tennessee Titans, and thus, their family will be spending all their time in Nashville (where they already own a home).

And guess who recently moved to Music City, too? That’s right, Kristin and her former NFL hubby, Jay Cutler.

But other than residing in the same city and being married to football players, these two have quite a bit in common…

They Have Reality Show Backgrounds: These two could totally relate based solely upon their rise to fame in Hollywood. As you may remember, Jessie and Eric had their own reality series on E! Eric and Jessie: Game On. And, of course, you can’t forget Kristin rose to fame from her start on Laguna Beach and The Hills.

They’re Entrepreneurs: Yes, both boss-ladies run businesses on top of everything else they do. Not only is Kristin an author and fashion designer, she also manages an e-commerce website for jewelry called Uncommon James. Jessie, on the other hand, juggles her singing career with her own e-commerce clothing and accessories line, Kittenish.  

Their Children Are the Same Age: Both Jessie and Kristin are mamas first and foremost. Jessie’s daughter, Vivianne, is 3, while her son, Eric, is 1. Kristin’s eldest son, Camden, is 4-years-old, while her second son, Jaxon, is 3. Her daughter, Saylor, is 1…just like Eric! Needless to say, playdates would be a must.

They’re Their Husbands’ Biggest Cheerleaders: Kristin’s husband Jay used to play for the Chicago Bears, while Jessie’s man played for the New Jersey Jets before signing with the Titans. But no matter what jersey they’re wearing, these two ladies are always rooting for their hubbies—on and off the field.

And They’re Always Celebrating Their Men: Jessie and Kristin know how to make their men feel extra special, always going above and beyond when celebrating their accomplishments. Date night is a must…and perhaps a double-date night is in their future?

They’re Unafraid to Overshare About Their Love Lives: These gals are in love, and they’re not afraid to show it! Kristin has shared photos of her man’s booty, while Jessie is constantly sharing steamy details and photos about her romance with Eric.

They Love to Cook: Jessie and Kristin would totally bond in the kitchen as they’re both fans of cooking good food for their family and friends.

They’re Party Planners: Going hand-in-hand with their cooking skills, these two know how to throw a party…Can you imagine what awesomeness would go into a conjoined gathering? Nashville might now be ready!

They Enjoy a Good Sweat Sesh: Not only do Jessie and Kristin love to have some fun, but they work for it, too…especially in the gym. Both ladies continuously post about their gym routines and talk about the importance of getting in a good sweat.

And did we mention their similarly steamy marriages? Just checkin’…Swoon.

Alright, Jessie and Kristin, now it’s up to you to make these BFF dreams of ours come true!

The Originals Season 4 Finale Was Absolutely Filled with Emotional Goodbyes

rs_600x600-170622134148-600×600.the-originals-summer-fontanta2-lp.62217.jpg

So much for Always and Forever. 

The Mikaelson family officially broke their vow to stick together on tonight’s finale of The Originals, but it was for an incredibly good reason. In order to save Hope (and all of New Orleans) from the evil Hollow that had possessed her, Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) explained that he had to divide up the Hollow and put it into something that was both eternal and related to Hope (Summer Fontana) by blood—AKA her vampire family. 

He needed four vampires, and then he needed those four vampires to go in four completely different directions, never able to see each other or Hope again in order to keep the Hollow from gaining power and trying to steal Hope’s incredible power back for itself.

So that’s exactly what happened. Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Rebekah (Claire Holt), and even Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) who arrived just in time to keep Freya from turning herself into a vampire) all had pieces of the Hollow put into them, and then they scattered around the world. Weirdly enough (or not weirdly at all), they all seemed pretty happy in the episode’s closing moments. 

Kol went off with Davina (Danielle Campbell). Rebekah and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) reunited in New York after he and Sofya (Taylor Cole) broke up, and they got back together with nothing to stop them. Before Elijah took off, he had Marcel compel him to forget about the vow entirely, freeing him from his devotion to his brother and allowing him to become the floppy-haired jazz pianist we always knew he could be. Klaus, meanwhile went off on his own, but still kept an eye on his family every once in a while. While Freya (Riley Voelkel) was happy with Keelin (Christina Moses), Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) found Hope a spot at Alaric Saltzman’s (Matt Davis) school for magical kids, which is the spinoff we need immediately

Executive producer Michael Narducci, who has been with the show since the pilot, wrote tonight’s finale, and it marks his final episode with the show. Julie Plec will be taking the reins for season five as Narducci moves on to his own projects, but we hopped on the phone with him one last time to talk all about his final episode and the end of Always and Forever. 

E: News: This is a little bittersweet, because this is your last finale, right?

Narducci: It is, yeah. It felt like the right time to move on, and I’m very happy that season four turned out the way it did. I had a great deal of fun working with the writers on it and working with the cast and our crew, and I feel happy and I’m excited to see what’s next.

Did you feel any pressure to go out with—not really a bang, in this finale, but it’s a pretty big ending for the show.

Yeah, it feels like an appropriate end to season four, and it feels like we are closing the door on a chapter in the life of the Mikaelson family without slamming the door shut, as you said, with a big bang. It felt like the truth is, these characters have been around for a thousand years, and they’ve had their ups and downs and they’ve had their moments of being together and their moments of not being together and their moments of isolation and separation, and you know, we set out to tell a story about the family coming face to face with a very dark and frightening evil.

For the first time in our show, the Mikaelsons weren’t just at war with some faction of vampire or werewolf or witch that was trying to defeat them. The Hollow was a true evil entity that could have done irreparable harm to New Orleans and perhaps the world at large, and the only thing that stood in its way was this family of vampires who are by no means heroes, but in this one instance, they manage to do something close to the right thing and I thought that was a worthy story to tell.

I have to admit I kind of laughed when Vincent said the only way to save Hope and defeat the Hollow was to end the “Always and Forever” vow, because of course. Why did you want to end the season on that?

We wanted to tell a story where the plot required this evil spirit to be basically drawn and quartered, and so these four different pieces have to go four different directions, and at the same time, there had to be a sacrifice involved in order to kind of make the magic work. Somebody had to give up something, and in this case, all four of the Mikaelson siblings gave up something. 

They gave up the ability to be together. And yet, as you look at them, seems like Kol has the possibility for love in his future, and Rebekah and Marcel, there’s nothing now standing in their way for them to fulfill their romantic storyline, and Elijah in those final moments, seems to be possessed of a newfound desire to find aspects of himself that have been hidden or basically tramped down for centuries. So that leaves Klaus, and who knows what’s going to happen next for Klaus? I’m eager to see what comes next and what the season five storyline is, but whether it’s good or bad for Klaus, I just love that in this moment, he is perhaps for the first time that we’ve ever seen him, acting selflessly.

He’s leaving Elijah so that Elijah can have peace, and he’s leaving Elijah so that the seeds of the Hollow that are now nestled inside of two brothers does not have the opportunity to grow by their proximity. And he’s doing the right thing. It’s not the easy thing, but he’s doing the right thing for the people he loves, and that’s the sign of emotional growth. And having gotten Klaus to that place, I do feel like this was a nice ending point for the season and for my tenure on the show.

It did seem like, despite their sacrifice, everybody was really happy at the end. Even Klaus at least looked happy to see that everyone else was happy.

Yeah, I think there’s a little bittersweet moment of joy, and of course, you have to imagine that a little bit of time has passed by the time Klaus finds Elijah, there’s been a little bit of passage of time that might help heal some of the wounds.

I think deep down, given the circumstances, they know that this is their only solution, and I think they embrace their fate with courage and, you know, there’s a certain gallows humor in the scene in act three when Rebekah wonders if this will be their redemption, and Klaus kinda chuckles and says, does anyone actually believe that? And Elijah says, absolutely not, but it’s a nice sentiment. And I think that defines their choice in that moment. It’s hard, but for one moment in a thousand years, they have the chance to do the right thing, and they do the right thing and it’s a nice choice.

Can you talk about the significance of Elijah having Marcel compel him to forget about the vow?

I think there’s a lot of different ways to look at it. Elijah has buried aspects of himself behind the red door and sublimated those instincts and forgotten things in the past, and knowing that, I think he goes to Marcel and asks him to take away this loyalty to a vow that has kept him, in a way, in service to Klaus for a thousand years. Perhaps because Elijah feels guilty that he didn’t stop Mikael from abusing Klaus, for a thousand years, he has tried to help his brother, and in this episode, Klaus released him from that vow and said I need you not to follow me. I need you not to come to my defense when I inevitably begin to suffer and fall because I don’t have my daughter anymore, because I don’t have my family anymore. I need you to leave me alone or the Hollow will win.

And Elijah knows that his defining character trait is his willingness to go to any lengths to help Klaus. So he’s got to get rid of that in order to ensure that the Mikaelsons are able to sidestep the disastrous return of the Hollow. The Hollow is something that eats away at your basic instincts. It kind of tricks you by latching onto your secret desires and your most intimately held wishes, and Elijah knows that’s how the Hollow’s going to get to him, by preying upon his love for Always and Forever. So he’s got to wipe that out. And if you think about it, wiping away such a huge part of your identity is, in some symbolic ways, much like Elijah’s choosing a complete blank slate. He’s almost committing a suicide of the character that he has portrayed for a thousand years, and then the question becomes what will emerge in the wake of that decision? And that’s great story for season five.

What do you know about the plan for season five? We’ve heard rumors of a teenage Hope…

We always talked about  where stories can go, and even in season one we had ideas about what the chapters for the Mikaelsons might look like going forward, and things that we wanted to see, and there are still things that I think Julie and the writers will want to address coming out of season four. I think there’s a lot of fun story to explore. But no, I have no idea what they’re going to do, and I’m excited to view it like everybody else, because I love the characters so much and there’s so much story to tell, so it feels like, you know, it will be great to have the experience of witnessing it as a fan.

Do you anticipate a lot of spinoff talk with Hope at the school at the end? Because I think that would be a great show.

I’m glad you think so. Certainly I think Hope is a wonderful character and you know, everybody wants to believe that their show has multiple spinoff possibilities. I certainly would watch a show starring Hope Mikaelson.

Finally, whose journey are you proudest of as you say goodbye to the show?

It’s such a tough question. I really love so many different elements of this show. I’m proud that we took Marcel from the vampire king of New Orleans and kind of the adopted son of Klaus and showed really why he is a unique individual who is different from the man who raised him, and how he has overcome adversity and been a proper king of the city and is now choosing to focus on something else, this love he has for Rebekah.

I’m very proud, and in fact, when I wrote Hayley scenes, I would often think about her feelings for her daughter and I would inject my feelings for my daughter, that I would do anything to protect my kid in the same way Hayley would do anything to protect her kid, and also, I have to say, the relationship between Klaus and Elijah and the idea that at the end of the day, they show each other the most love by their decision to give each other what they need and go their separate ways. Those, I think, are the key relationships and the key characters that I will always think of when I think of the show.

The Originals will return to the CW in 2018.

Another Amber Rose & 21 Savage Pic Makes Them Look Coupled Up AF

Screen-Shot-2017-06-24-at-8.09.05-AM.jpg

Vixen Amber Rose and 21 Savage aren’t doing anything to simmer down romance rumors. The alleged overnight couple have social media buzzing over another outing together.

A pic has surfaced of Amber looking super hands on with the hip-hip newcomer.

A couple nights ago, footage surfaced of Rose and 21 Savage leaving a Los Angeles venue together.

We got them Thursday night walking out of the Belasco Theater where there was a hip-hop showcase. They got into his red Ferrari, and since it only seats 2 … the math was looking good for a hookup. Amber’s not shy … she claims she hasn’t had any sex partners this year because work’s kept her so busy, there’s “no time for penis.” Raises the question: for whom is she bringing that bush back? (TMZ)

This week, Amber made Instagram sizzle courtesy of a new clip of herself with 21 Sav’s music playing.

Coincidentally, Rose and Savage rubbed elbows earlier this week at DJ Khaled‘s new Grateful album release party.

Queen of the South's Executive Producer's Goal Is to "Bring More Latinos Into the Process"

rs_1024x759-170623153508-1024-queen-of-the-south-cast.jpg

Queen of the South‘s executive producer Natalie Chaidez has written for TV for many years, but oddly enough this is the only opportunity she’s had to bring a character like Teresa Mendoza to life. 

“I grew up in a Mexican-American community, and this is the first time in 23 years of being in television that I get to write for a Mexican character.”

With the show now in its action-packed second season, Chaidez says that “Season one was about survival, season two is about learning what it takes. The cost, the sacrifices it takes to succeed in the drug business.”

The show and Chaidez have one clear goal that they’re working towards every season. 

“There’s so few Latina characters in Television. The goal for me is to expand the writing staff and to bring more Latinos into the process. Bringing Mexicano actors in, bringing people from Telemundo,” she explains.

This season, Mendoza’s path crosses with that of Telemundo’s El Señor de los Cielos‘ Aurelio Casillas, which is played by actor Rafael Amaya. The fifth season of the Telemundo’s Emmy-Award winning series debuted to record-breaking ratings as the No.1 Spanish-language program in primetime and outperformed ABC and CBS among key demos at 10 PM. 

Queen of the South‘s scenery changes this season, and there is a reason for that.

“I think our biggest challenge so far this season, is that I wanted to take the show out of Dallas and I wanted to get into the nitty gritty of working in the drug trade,” she explains. “I decided to take the show to Bogota and to shoot the show remotely. So I really wanted to expand the world of the show as Teresa’s journey expands.”

You can catch Queen of the South every Thursday at 10/9c on USA.
