In the episode, she proposes that she could potentially use sisters Khloé or Kourtney as the surrogate!

5 Student-Teacher Relationships That Cross the Line

At what point does it become acceptable for a student to date a teacher? It’s obviously a no-no if the student is underage, but some colleges have banned student-teacher sex completely, even between consenting adults. For years, the topic has fascinated filmmakers and viewers alike. Some are particularly racy takes on these scandals, like the film A Teacher, while other affairs are explained more easily — Drew Barrymore is an undercover reporter in Never Been Kissed, therefore technically fair game ( . . . still a little shady). Here are student-teacher liaisons that cross the line from cute to questionable.

1 The Power StruggleThe Power Struggle

In the satirical Election, civics teacher Jim McAllister (Matthew Broderick) wants to take down conniving overachiever Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon) in the high school election, after Flick seduces a fellow teacher and causes him to lose his job.

2 The Blackmail-Worthy AffairThe Blackmail Worthy Affair

Art teacher Sheba (Cate Blanchett) falls for a charming 15-year-old student and into a sordid affair in Notes on a Scandal — but a fellow teacher (Judi Dench) uses her knowledge of their liaisons to blackmail Sheba into a friendship.

3 The Unrequited CrushThe Unrequited Crush

Prof. Tripp (Michael Douglas) tempts fate by allowing his student Hannah (Katie Holmes) to rent a room in his house, but he successfully rebuffs her advances in Wonder Boys. Meanwhile, his prize pupil James (Tobey Maguire) ends up in the sack with Tripp’s book editor (Robert Downey Jr.).

4 The Multigenerational Love TriangleThe Multigenerational Love Triangle

In the coming-of-age comedy Rushmore, Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) starts pining for teacher Rosemary Cross (Olivia Williams) around the time he befriends a father figure named Herman Blume (Bill Murray), who also develops a crush on Ms. Cross.

5 The Second ChanceThe Second Chance

As an admissions officer at Columbia University in P.S., Louise Harrington (Laura Linney) meets a man many years her junior (Topher Grace), who happens to have the same face, talents, and even name as her deceased high school sweetheart. True love reincarnate?

Nicole Kidman Bruises Upset Husband Keith Urban

The actress plays an abused wife in denial in the HBO limited series, and some of the bruises her character Celeste sports on the show were real. The 49-year-old, who also signed up for some torrid lovemaking scenes, admits Keith Urban was “devastated” to see how far his wife was going to perfect her role. “I didn’t realise how much of it penetrated me,” Nicole told Vogue. “I would go home at night sometimes and be in a lot of pain, and I had to take things like Advil because I was being thrown around physically.

“I was really bruised. At one point Keith was like. ‘I’m going to take a photo of your back because it’s covered in deep, massive bruises’. He was devastated seeing it, but then he would say, ‘But I have an artist wife!’” “He knows that’s how I work,” Nicole added. “I don’t even notice it half the time. I loved playing her, because she was a beautifully written character with a director (Jean-Marc Vallee) that totally wanted to go there, and to have an actor like Alex to play opposite off of was amazing.

“That’s what we all seek as actors. But at the same time, when I walked away from it, I remember thinking that was the deepest I’ve gone in terms of finding and losing things.” Kidman recently told Vulture magazine she begged HBO bosses to hire Skarsgard to play her abusive husband in Big Little Lies, stating, “He has the ability to hold you and pull you in, but he also breaks down. He has that fragility as well as the dominance. He is obviously very tall which is really, really helpful for me. It’s not often that I look small. So physically he’s very dominating as well, which is frightening.”

5 Things You Should Never Say to a New Widow

When my husband was killed two years ago, the news of his death spread like wildfire. It was so tragic and public that the local news was at our house in fewer than 20 minutes. I heard it was on Facebook within the hour. At only 33 years old, Justin was killed by a stray bullet that made its way into our home from over 200 feet away. As if these circumstances weren’t shocking enough, his death occurred just three days after I delivered our first son, Jax.

5 Things You Should Never Say to a New Widow

Because Justin’s death was so publicized, Jax and I were forced into the spotlight during what should have been a personal and private time. Looking back, I can understand the fascination people had, but at the time it was lost on me. I just wanted my husband back! The only upside to the attention was the outpouring of love we received from friends, acquaintances, and even complete strangers. People felt emotionally connected to us, and that was somewhat comforting.

In the months to follow, I would become a recluse, as I loathed bumping into people I knew. I grew accustomed to (yet aggravated by) the pity stares, the awkward body language, the insensitive comments, and the forced conversation. I heard a lot of jarring things that first year, but these nine comments were the absolute worst. Here are nine things you just shouldn’t say to a new widow.

1. “It was Meant To Be.”

The first time I heard this callous remark, I was overcome with fury. No matter how close you think you were or are to a recently deceased person or his family member, this is never the way to go. As an emotionally distraught widow, the subtext I heard was, “It’s OK that he died.” I am aware that people are only trying to help and to find their own ways of coping. Having these thoughts is quite normal, but it’s best to keep them to yourself. Dig down deep into that heart of yours and try to find a smidge of empathy.

2. “It’s OK to Be Mad.”

When Justin died, I was mad at the world. I blamed God. I blamed the man who shot him. I blamed the legal system for allowing that man back into society. I even blamed myself for ever buying our house in the first place. I was resentful and envious of other new moms, new dads, and basically anyone enjoying a happy life. I was pissed off! So anytime anyone tried to reassure me that my anger was justified, it only intensified. It was like adding fuel to the fire.

3. “What Happened to The Man Who Killed Him?”

I realize that this question doesn’t pertain to all new widows, but if you look at the big picture, some version of it applies. If your husband died in a car wreck, someone might ask, “Was anyone else killed in the crash?” If your husband died of cancer, they could ask, “How rare was his cancer?” or “What treatment did you pursue?” If your husband died of a heart attack: “Does heart disease run in your family?” If your husband choked on a chicken bone: “Was he eating KFC?” Seriously, people: he’s dead. Why must you feel the need to bring up the very thing that took his life? I am fully aware of the reason he is gone, and I certainly don’t need a reminder of it.

4. “I’m Having Such a Hard Time, I Don’t Know How You Do it!”

I’m not sure why you feel the need to express to me what an unimaginable time you are having right now, but it feels a little selfish. I don’t deny that you have heartbreak over this, but it’s probably best that you don’t share it with me. How do I do it, you ask? If I could somehow re-create the magic of Easter and resurrect him from the dead, I would be right on top on that. I do what has to be done because I don’t have a choice.

5. “How are You Doing?”

I’m quite aware that every single person who knows that my husband died wonders how I’m doing. But to that I say, “Do you REALLY want to know?” The truth is rather bleak, and I seriously doubt most people can handle it. I can’t possibly sum it up with one answer. I typically responded with, “Uhhhh . . . taking it one day at a time.” When I actually wanted to speak the truth: “I decided to take a shower today” or “I spent half of the day designing Justin’s headstone; that was fun.” Or maybe “my mom had to force me to eat a few bites of soup, then I vomited in the toilet when she wasn’t looking” or “I cried myself to sleep for the 15th night in a row.” By sharing these truths, I wasn’t seeking pity, just hoping to bring a little clarity to the situation. Most likely, a new widow is doing the best she can, and odds are, it ain’t very well.

3 Braids That Are Perfect For Your Next Workout

Looking to freshen up your ‘do at the gym or studio? Instagram’s queen of braids, Amber Fillerup Clark, shared her favorite gym-ready styles with POPSUGAR Fitness. These simple fitness braid styles look so complex and intricate, but they’re actually pretty simple. Check out what Amber does to keep her hair looking fresh (and out of her face) during a workout.

The Dutch Braid Messy BunThe Dutch Braid Messy Bun

“Just like I love to do a dutch braid for the gym, this hairstyle is a fun alternative if you want to switch things up,” said Amber. “This hairstyle is a quick way to have a cute hairstyle at the gym and it keep the hair out of your face.” A dutch braid is essentially an inside-out french braid — instead of bringing the pieces of hair up and over, you pull them underneath, which gives the braid more of a pop with a raised texture and volume. Amber pulls her into a messy, low bun.

Single BraidSingle Braid

“Braids are a great way to have your hair back and make sure it doesn’t get tangled during your gym session!” said Amber. “If you decide to take the braid out after, it always makes for some good beach waves, too!” The braid shown here is a fishtail, but Amber also loves doing a classic braid down the back.

Bubble PonyBubble Pony

This textured ponytail isn’t a braid, but it’s a fun refresh on your standard gym pony. “The bubble ponytail is one of my gym favorites! “I love having a high pony at the gym. This style is easy to achieve and I love that I can go out after the gym without having to redo my hair.”

Amber Gave us a Quick Tutorial — Here’s How To Do It:

  • Pull your hair up into a ponytail at the crown of your head and tie it off with a thick elastic so it stays in place.
  • Softly tease your hair with a brush or comb.
  • Tie a clear elastic around the pony tail about two to three inches down and pull on the bubble to make it stand out more.
  • Continue to make as many “bubbles” as your hair can handle and you are done!

Kendall Jenner Was Reluctant to Testify Against Stalker

 The model and reality TV star appeared in Los Angeles County Court in October (16) to testify against Shavaughn McKenzie, who was arrested outside Kendall’s Hollywood Hills home in August (16) after he allegedly followed her through her security gate when she arrived back home in her car. In Sunday night’s episode (26Mar17) of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the 21-year-old recounted the incident and revealed that she didn’t want to testify because she felt bad for him.

“I don’t think he’s mentally there,” she said. “I don’t even know if he can control what he’s doing. Like, he thinks what he’s doing is normal and fine.” Speaking directly to the cameras, she explained being famous means people feel like they know her, and don’t take into account they are in fact strangers. “They don’t realise that they don’t actually know you,” she shared. “That was my scenario. So when he came into my house, he thought it was OK. He literally talked to me like I knew who he was.”

Her mother Kris Jenner told Kendall she had to testify to make it clear the family won’t tolerate that type of behaviour and to “set a precedent” for anyone who might try to do the same. As the trial date came closer, Kendall told half-sister Kim Kardashian the thought of seeing McKenzie in court “freaks me out” and “gives me crazy anxiety” but after she went through with it, Kendall admitted the experience wasn’t as awful as she thought, but she still felt badly for her stalker.

“It’s really sad. I was on the verge of tears the whole time because I felt bad for him,” she confessed. “Even though it’s necessary right now, it makes me sad… (but) it’s definitely necessary to protect myself, because I don’t know what anyone is capable of doing.” In October (16), McKenzie was given a five-year restraining order which bans him from coming near Kendall or contacting her.

Emma Roberts Gets Scared at Her Own Movies

The Valentine’s Day star has become known for her roles in producer Ryan Murphy’s TV series American Horror Story and Scream Queens, while she also featured in 2011’s Scream 4. Her new movie, The Blackcoat’s Daughter, is another thriller, and Emma was chilled to the core just reading the script. “This movie is definitely actually terrifying, whereas Scream Queens is more fun scary,” she told U.S. breakfast show Today. “This is definitely a psychological thriller. When I read the script I knew I had to do the movie because it literally kept me up that night and I kept getting really scared, more so after I read it, like, a few hours later. Emma Roberts Movies

It stuck with me, which is how you know it’s really gonna be scary.” Despite feeling drawn to the project, Emma admits she is “not particularly” a horror fan, because she jumps at the slightest thing. “I get so scared so easily, so it’s kinda funny that I’m always involved in scary stuff,” she smiled. “It’s never scary when you’re making anything scary, like, I was never scared on Scream Queens, or American Horror Story, or The Blackcoat’s Daughter, but then watching it, you get scared,” she explained. “My friends make fun of me, they’re like, ‘You were in the movie, why are you covering your eyes while you’re watching yourself?’Emma Roberts Pics

“I think we (the cast) are the most in the dark because you’re doing it, but you don’t get to see it, so it’s always a nice surprise seeing everything put together. You’re like, ‘Oh, it worked!’.” The Blackcoat’s Daughter, about two boarding school students who get caught up in a series of slayings, premiered in New York on Wednesday night (22Mar17), and Emma reveals that while she was shaking in her seat, the film became too much for her teenage sister Grace to bear. The actress added, “My little sister… was at the premiere last night and she actually had to leave the movie because she got so scared! So that’s how scary it is, but in a good way. I mean, it’s fun to be scared sometimes.”

3 Best and Smart Ways to Stay Motivated in a Smaller Work Role

Like pants, unexpected changes in our careers can leave us feeling frustrated and a little insecure. But in an ever-shifting culture, sometimes in order to take advantage of a big opportunity, you may actually have to dial your career back. This could mean a reduced title, fewer hours, or lower pay. For hard-driving, career-oriented gals, these consequences are tough to swallow. However, it’s important to keep things in perspective. Sheryl Sandberg — yep that Sheryl Sandberg — noted the career advice she ever received told her to “look for growth,” first and foremost. Often, when we’re comfortable in a position, it means we aren’t growing like we should be.3 Best and Smart Ways to Stay Motivated in a Smaller Work Role

Opportunity will knock, but it rarely saunters through the door holding a tray of money and happiness with your name on it. If you’re striving for more in your career there will be times of second guessing, reaching, and insecurity. But simply knowing growth is in store doesn’t make swallowing that smaller paycheck or lower title easy. Here are three ways to keep driving toward bigger things, even if you’ve found yourself (temporarily) in a smaller role.

1. Stay Away From the Comparison Trap

You’ve heard it before, but comparison steals your joy. No matter how tempting it is to eye your cubemate each time he or she nabs a meeting with the head honcho, step away from the side eye. Often we assume our co-workers just naturally have it all together; we imagine they have the exact same background, education, and experience that we do — they’re just better at everything. This couldn’t be further from the truth. When we attempt to quantify our careers and the careers of others we soon realize it’s not an apples-to-apples thing.

It’s our human tendency to blow others’ achievements up while shrinking our own. Not only does this stunt our confidence, but it also creates space for a self-fulfilling prophesy. We think we’ll never measure up to our superstar co-worker and, weirdly, the universe usually complies. On the flip side, if we go into our day with the confidence to tackle any project while keeping our eyes fixed solely on our own progress, most of the time success is exactly what we receive.

2. Find Something to Improve

Finding your groove in a new role is key. But how can you get into the flow at work if you feel disengaged? The answer: find something you can improve. Chances are, your co-workers in higher-ranking positions are swamped with their daily tasks and have very little time for big-picture thinking. This is where you come in. Is there a tweak you can make to a presentation that will help not only your manager but her manager? Could you do extra research into what competitors are doing and then brief your team with ideas? Is there a gap in product development research that you can fill? Actively looking for ways to optimize your office’s processes will motivate you and make a little space for some creative va va voom. Improving things — no matter if it’s the copier or a cost-benefit analysis — builds confidence, boosts feelings of belonging, and helps you push through even the dullest of career stages.

3. Keep a Brag List Handy

Do you remember when you were young and every A+ paper, “beautiful” craft, or offbeat drawing you made was displayed around the house, courtesy of your parents? Showing off your work was a way your family showed they cared — and it likely incited some ooey-gooey happy feelings. You can reap those same benefits in your career without covering your cube with adult finger paintings. Because as it turns out, those warm and fuzzy feelings actually spur growth and innovation. Studies have shown that happier employees are more productive employees, and nothing makes people happier than being reminded of their successes. How can you apply this concept to a career downshift? File it, baby! Keep an email file titled “Why I’m Great,” or “Way to Go, Lucy!” and fill it with small and large successes. Boss sends a “Great job!” email? Put it in the file. Receive positive feedback on your slide deck? File that gem. Then, when you’re feeling a little off, take some time to review your success moments for a quick reminder of how awesome you really are. Moreover, keeping a running tally of your career highs comes in handy when you’re meeting with your supervisor during that classic year-end assessment.
