Gabrielle Union’s adorable daughter Kaavia did her best roar and scream while wearing pieces of a lion costume on her head and feet in a new video.
Kaavia James Wade, 2, proved it doesn’t need to be Halloween to show off a cute costume in a new clip posted to her own Instagram page! The hilarious daughter of Gabrielle Union, 48, and Dwyane Wade, 39, wore a tan, white, and black lion’s face costume placed over her head as well as matching lion slippers on her feet as she rocked a white onesie and walked toward the camera. As she got closer to the lense, she let out some adorable roaring sounds and even a high pitched scream that ended up being the perfect impression of the wild animal.
The theme song to Disney’s The Lion King could be heard playing throughout the video and the caption referenced the lion character of Nala in the film. “Nailed my Lion Queen-Nala’s Revenge audition. Your welcome,” it read.
Once the post was shared, it didn’t take long for followers to gush over how amazing Kaavia was in the clip. “Kaav is pure joy!” one follower exclaimed while another wrote, “The little scream tho???????????? Kaav you are something ????.” A third said, “I just love her” and a fourth pointed out that Kaavia was “definitely getting the role.” Others left heart-eyed emojis.
Before Kaavia’s lion show, she made headlines for playfully crashing into her mom while riding her toy car earlier this month. The skillful little girl seemed to be trying to avoid naptime during the funny moment and confidently drove at full speed toward the actress, who was trying to plead with her to get some rest in the video. “No Nap. No Cap. #ShadyBaby,” the hilarious caption for the post read.
Kaavia is known for making her parents and her followers laugh on a regular basis. Since she was born, she’s showed off some funny facial expressions and antics that get more and more memorable each time. From refusing to share pasta to flaunting unimpressed looks, this little lady is already quite the character at such a young age! We can’t wait to see what else she has up her sleeve!
For weeks, the ‘RHONJ’ cast has been suspecting that Teresa’s dating someone, and this week, they got their confirmation.
A psychic dropped some major bombshells during the April 14 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Not only did she unveil Dolores Catania‘s health crisis and Melissa Gorga‘s marital issues, but she uncovered secrets about Teresa Giudice‘s dating life!
The suspicions about Teresa’s potential new romance started at the start of this week’s episode when Melissa, Margaret Josephs and Jackie Goldschneider discussed how odd it was that Teresa couldn’t go to a recent get together they had. Teresa claimed she had a soccer tournament to attend, but despite posting her morning coffee on Instagram, and a few other highlights from throughout her day, no one saw anything involving soccer.
So the ladies weren’t too surprised when the psychic that Teresa invited to her house said that her recently deceased parents acknowledged that “love is in the air”. The psychic went on to say that “they’re embracing the relationship”. And as soon as she said that, everyone gasped, while Teresa started blushing.
“Even the psychic says Teresa’s getting it,” Margaret joked in her confessional, while further acknowledging that her suspicions were right.
“They’re giving you the green light on that,” the psychic added.
Melissa then tried finding out the person’s identity by asking the psychic, “Do you have any names or letters?”, but Teresa shut it down. She was blushing so hard and Melissa said she just wanted to scream out loud that “Teresa has a damn boyfriend”.
Like we said, no name was ever given, but we can only assume the psychic was getting visions of Teresa’s romance with LuisRuelas, who she’s now madly in love with.
In other RHONJ news, Dolores revealed that she needs a biopsy after something strange turned up during a recent mammogram. And JenniferAydin tried finding peace between her mother and father, which involved her supporting her mom’s belief that she was emotionally abused by Jennifer’s father throughout their marriage. Melissa also told JoeGorga that she’s going to talk to their daughter, Antonia, about the “birds and the bees” soon. He wasn’t thrilled about it, but they both said it was necessary.

Kobe Bryant had two jersey numbers while playing for the Lakers, and his young daughters are twinning in the shirts. Bianka rocked No. 8 and Capri sported No. 24.
The late Kobe Bryant‘s two youngest daughters are keeping his memory alive in the cutest way. His widow Vanessa Bryant, 38, dressed her little girls in Los Angeles Lakers jerseys with the two numbers he wore during his 20 years with the team. In Instagram photos she shared on Apr. 14, four-year-old Bianka sported his number 8 jersey that he wore from 1996 through 2006. The little cutie didn’t wear the purple and gold, but instead donned the black and gold Nike Black Mamba edition, in honor of Kobe’s nickname.
Capri, 22 months, could be seen in the Lakers gold and purple jersey sporting Kobe’s number 24, which he wore from 2006 until his retirement in 2016. The girls’ daddy was such a basketball legend that he became the only player in NBA history to have two numbers retired by the same team, which happened in a 2017 ceremony. The girls looked so cute repping their daddy in the jerseys, while sporting big happy smiles on their faces.
Vanessa shared four photos in a foursquare box with Bianka and Capri in separate photos on the top tier. Both girls already have lean bodies with their dad’s long legs, as they were both dressed in black skinny jeans. In the bottom snapshots, their mom included two pictures of the girls together in a cute blue children’s toy car with Bianka behind the wheel. Vanessa captioned the photo “Lil’ Mambacitas Bianka & Capri,” with Laker purple and gold heart emojis.
With the two seated so close together, fans marveled how the sisters look like they could be twins. They both wore their hair in similar styles, with shoulder-length curls. The girls wore matching purple bows in their hair on the right side of their heads.
Vanessa’s close friend and tattoo artistNikko Hurtado left heart emojis in the comments, as did Kobe’s close friend and former Lakers teammate Pau Gasol, who is like an uncle to Kobe and Vanessa’s daughters. Fan @mila.jay30 gushed, “They look like twins. So beautiful.” User @foryoursoulsis responded, “Twins!!!!!! They are so cute!” while @j_1ofakindnocap noted, “Wow!! I really had to do a double take they look so much alike.”
A number of followers noted how much Capri looks like her late 13-year-old sister Gianna “Gigi” Bryant, who was killed along with her dad in a tragic Jan. 26, 2020 helicopter crash in Calabasas, CA. User @g33nnaaa noted, “Wow. When I look at Capri… I see Gigi” while @lissadawn exclaimed, “Omg KOKO looks so much like GIANNA GIGI.” Even Vanessa herself captioned an Apr. 6 photo of Capri, “It’s the KOBE stare for me~Capri Kobe. Daddy and Gigi’s twin.”Both girls are so precious and Kobe would have been so proud watching them grow up. But those happy and smiling faces must bring Vanessa so much joy and comfort after the horrific loss she experienced.
Christina Aguilera, Iggy Azalea and some of our other favorite A-listers have been rocking leather pants. See how the celebs are styling the trend in the chicest ways.
If there’s one trend that’s popular with practically every celebrity in Hollywood right now, it’s leather pants. Whether they show off their curves in skintight black trousers, or opt for a high-waisted pant with a pop of color — we’re looking to our favorite celebs for inspiration on how to rock the trend. Be it for a glam dinner out on the town or just going for a daytime rocker look, these ladies are the epitome of slaying the style.
Christina Aguilera flaunted her killer curves in a pair of stylish, high waisted leather pants in two glam Feb. 18, 2021 Instagram photos. The fitted trousers hugged her body to perfection, and she couldn’t have picked a better choice for a top. Xtina, 40, wore a skin-tight light purple turtleneck with funky, darker purple pattern across it. The garment was likely a bodysuit, as it tucked into her leather pants with ease and showed off how tiny her waist is these days. With her fun Chanel Rubik’s cube style purse and glam hair and makeup, the mother of two looked like she was heading out for a night on the town.
Iggy Azalea changed up her rapper aesthetic for rocker chic in two Apr. 12, 2021 Instagram photos. She could be seen in tight black leather pants with silver stud accents on them. The 30-year-old matched them with a body-hugging black tank top with red trim around the neck and shoulders. It was pretty clear the brand she was wearing, as the tank had “Christian Dior” spelled out in intricate red lettering. The look was purely for fans, as Iggy seemed to pose against a wall at home in the outfit.
Larsa Pippen, 46, rocked a pair of black PVC bottoms while grabbing dinner with her daughter and a friend in Beverly Hills. The former Kardashian BFF was snapped on July 29, 2020 looking incredibly chic in a brown, monogrammed Fendi top, a sparkly protective face mask, and black open-toe heels.
Like Larsa, Kim Kardashian, 39, has also been known to rock leather pants, and she stepped out in New York City in October 2019 wearing a form-fitting pair of trousers. She paired them with a black leather top which featured embroidery of a dragon and and a high neckline. Surprisingly, she opted to wear a pair of flip flops as she walked beside her then-husband Kanye West on their way to Milos restaurant.
Of course, that wasn’t the only time she’s rocked the trend. Kim stepped out in Hollywood on July 10 and opted to wear skintight high-waisted black leather Vex pants. The crocodile embossed pants hugged her curvaceous frame perfectly and she paired the pants with a black cropped Tom Ford crocodile top. She topped her outfit off with a pair of clear PVC ankle-strap sandals and left her short bob down and straight. Kim looked super toned in this skintight outfit and it was the perfect sexy look for a night out.
Other celebs who have rocked the trend include Kendall Jenner, 23, and Sophie Turner, 23, who have both tried out the look in their own unique way. One star that cannot stop wearing leather pants is Kendall, and the supermodel has rocked them on multiple occasions. Kendall stepped out in New York City on May 11, and put her insanely toned torso on full display when she rocked baggy black Mugler High-Waisted Straight Leg Leather Trousers paired with a tiny wife beater tank top that she cropped all the way up to her chest. Over her tiny top, she donned a sheer black and white button-down Acne Printed Shirt, topping her look off with a Louis Vuitton Graffiti Pochette Accessories Bag and Ray-Ban Oval Flat Lenses sunnies.
Another one of our fave supermodels who loves the look is Bella Hadid, 22, of course. Bella flaunted her enviable figure in a full monochromatic, brown leather ensemble at the 2019 Variety Power of Women Luncheon in NYC on April 5. She wore a skin-tight buttery brown Rosetta Getty Fall 2019 Pintuck Leather Flare Pants with a matching Rosetta Getty Strapless Top and a Rosetta Getty Tailored Leather Blazer. She topped her leather look off with Vhernier Creole Earrings, Dmy by Dmy Olsen Sunglasses, and see-through Gianvito Rossi PVC & Patent-Leather Pumps.
Sophie Turner looked fabulous when she tried the trend at the Louis Vuitton 2020 Cruise Show which took place at the TWA Flight Center at JFK airport, in New York, on May 8. Sophie, who is a brand ambassador for the high-fashion designer, Louis Vuitton, looked gorgeous in a pair of bright red baggy, leather trousers which had tight cuffed ankles with gold button accents. She paired the leather joggers with a black and white cropped tweed jacket, which featured a striped ruffle neckline, and a leopard patterned stripe down the front of the jacket, which was cinched in at her waist with a rope tie belt.

Ben Affleck wrapped filming the upcoming drama ‘The Tender Bar’ on Apr. 13 and was spotted giving co-star George Clooney a warm sendoff.
Ben Affleck, 48, turned heads on Apr. 13 when he was seen walking and hugging George Clooney, 59, on the set of their upcoming film The Tender Bar. The actor was dressed in character with a gray polo shirt, jeans, and some vintage sunglasses as he walked beside his co-star, who was wearing a black polo shirt, jeans, and a white face mask, and eventually embraced him to say goodbye. It was the last day on the set in Ipswich, Massachusetts and both men were near a light blue classic convertible during the sighting.
At one point, before they left the set, they were seen filming a fun scene that involved loading actor Max Casella‘s car with cases of beer.
The Tender Bar is based on the 2005 memoir of the same name by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer JR Moehringer. It’s about the author and his early years in New York City as he searches for his father and grows close to his uncle and some locals at a nearby bar. Other famous actors involved include Christopher Lloyd, Tye Sheridan, and Lily Rabe.
Production for the film had years of struggles before Amazon Studios bought the rights to the project in July 2020. George was one of the first leading cast members to be announced in Dec. and Ben’s participation was announced in Feb. Most of the rest of the cast was only added last month. Although anticipation for the film is high, it’s not yet clear when it’s being released.
Before The Tender Bar, which was filmed at various locations around Boston, Ben and George worked on the 2012 film Argo together, so they’re definitely not strangers. Earlier this month, Ben was spotted playing softball with George on the set of the flick and like with the latest sighting, he looked years younger with a clean shaven face and longer hairstyle.
Danica Patrick was asked about the ‘hard breakups’ in her life, and she didn’t sugarcoat the sadness she felt after splitting from Aaron Rodgers. There were some benefits to this heartbreak, though.
Before she could learn more about herself, Danica Patrick had to go through a lot of heartbreak after splitting from Aaron Rodgers. “I think we learn the most about ourselves through relationships, but there’s nothing like heartbreak to really throw you in the deep end of that,” the 39-year-old race car driver admitted while appearing on the April 12 episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls.
However, it wasn’t all just sadness on Danica’s end. “But I’ve learned a lot and as broken open as I was on the sad end,” the NASCAR pro continued. “I have felt so much joy in so many more instances and so many more unlikely places than I ever have, so it’s like my heart got broken open to both ends of the spectrum.” Danica also went through a big split after divorcing from physical therapist Paul Edward Hospenthal in 2013, after seven years of marriage.
The top of heartbreak was brought up after Bear asked Danica about the “hard breakups” she has publicly gone through, per Us Weekly, which tuned into the episode. Danica has done a lot of reflecting on relationships lately; in an Instagram post shared earlier in March, Aaron’s ex wrote, “Your relationships are mirrors. We can’t receive what we don’t believe. What you seek is seeking you. You get what you think you deserve. When you change, things you see change. Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”
Danica and Aaron met at the 2012 ESPYs, but they started off as friends. They eventually brought their relationship to the next level, though, and Danica confirmed they were dating by January of 2018. By July of 2020, however, Danica’s rep confirmed that her famous client and Aaron were no longer together.
Aaron has gone on to find love with Big Little Lies star Shailene Woodley, 29. They’re engaged, which the Greenbay Packers quarterback revealed during the NFL Honors broadcast on Feb. 6.
It’s extremely rare for an ‘American Idol’ frontrunner to voluntarily leave the competition. But that’s what Wyatt Pike did and now he’s explaining why.
American Idol Top 16 finalist Wyatt Pikeabruptly left the singing competition, and now he’s explaining why he departed a position that so many other aspiring singers would give anything to be part of. In an Wed. Apr. 14 Instagram post, he didn’t go into much detail, but told fans “I had to leave the @AmericanIdol competition for personal reasons but am so thankful I get to play music for the rest of my life.” The Utah native didn’t elaborate on what the personal reasons were.
The 19-year-old added a goodbye to the singers who he had become friends with on their journey to reach the top 12. “Fellow contestants – miss you all, good luck! Thank you to everyone for your support.” Wyatt then indicated he still intends to pursue a singing career, telling followers, “Do stick around for more musical things soon!”
Host Ryan Seacrest shocked American Idol viewers when he announced during Mon. Apr. 12’s first live telecast who would make it from the top 16 to the top 12, but revealed but that Wyatt would not be among of them. The host announced, “I have to tell you that finalist Wyatt Pike will not be competing in the competition. He had to drop out, but we wish him the very best.”
Wyatt’s fellow contestants hit up the comment section of his Instagram post to tell him how loved he was. Madison Watkins — who did advance to the top 12 — wrote, “You are so special Wyatt- JUST THE BEGINNING BABY!!!! Can’t wait to see you soon. You are A GEM in every since of the word.” Current front-runner Grace Kinstler gushed, “So much love for you Wyatt!!! You are going to do AMAZING things; I cannot wait to watch it all unfold for you!!” Top 12 finalist Cassandra Coleman added, “I love you and miss you so much!!!! So excited for your future.”
Wyatt appeared on the show the night prior to the revelation that he’d quit the competition, performing Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody” in pre-recorded appearance on Sunday, April 11. In an Apr. 7 Instagram photo, Wyatt showed that he was already back in Utah, sharing a photo of a snowy mountain landscape above Park City, as well as another shot of him driving through traffic behind the wheel of his Toyota RAV 4.
He also indicated he was going through something, writing in the caption, “Something to feel this through: home. Thankful for the rollercoaster I’m on today.” However when a fan @fifi_p_314 wrote in the comments, “We’re rooting for you on the rollercoaster of American Idol!! Best of luck to such an amazing artist and person!” Wyatt responded back “thank you!! I appreciate you!” That was prior to the announcement that he dropped out of AI, so it seems unclear when he made the decision to leave the show for good.
4:52 PM PT — Potter has been released from the Hennepin County jail after posting a $100,000 bond.
12:29 PM PT — Prosecutors just charged Potter with second-degree manslaughter in Wright’s shooting death.
According to the criminal complaint, during the fatal interaction with Wright, Potter pulled out her Glock 9mm handgun with her right hand and pointed it at Wright while saying she would tase him.
The complaint says Potter said “Taser, Taser, Taser” and pulled the trigger on her handgun, firing one fatal round into Wright’s left side.
According to the complaint, an investigator from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension examined Potter’s duty belt and noted her handgun is holstered on the right side of the belt and her Taser is holstered on the left side of the belt in a straight-draw position, meaning she would have to use her left hand to pull the Taser out from the holster.
11:17 AM PT — Potter was just booked into Hennepin County Jail, where she’s being held without bail … jail records show. She also posed for a mug shot.
As you can see, Potter’s home in Champlin, MN is already being protected with a chain link fence and concrete barriers blocking the property.
Kim Potter, the Brooklyn Center police officer who fatally shot Daunte Wright and then resigned, has just been arrested … and she’s about to booked into jail and charged in his death.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension announced Wednesday agents took Potter into custody around 11:30 AM CT at the BCA in St. Paul.
The BCA says Potter will be booked into the Hennepin County Jail on probable cause for second-degree manslaughter … and Washington County prosecutors will soon file charges.
Brooklyn Center Police
As you know … 20-year-old Wright was shot and killed by Potter Sunday afternoon in a Minneapolis suburb, sparking massive protests and riots. Potter’s body cam footage shows her yelling “Taser” as she’s holding her handgun, and she fires one deadly round. You also hear Potter on body cam saying, “S***, I just shot him.”
Police were trying to take Wright into custody during a traffic stop, after learning he had an outstanding warrant.
In a letter to Mayor Mike Elliott, Acting City Manager Reggie Edwards and Police Chief Tim Gannon, who later resigned, Potter said … “I have loved every minute of being a police officer and serving this community to the best of my ability, but I believe it is in the best interest of the community, the department, and my fellow officers if I resign immediately.”
Wright’s family has retained civil rights attorney Ben Crump, and loved ones openly wept and called for justice Tuesday during a super emotional news conference.
The BCA also says there is an active investigation into the fatal shooting.
‘Bachelor Nation’ stars, including contestants from Colton Underwood’s season, jumped on social media to react with supportive messages after the ABC star announced that he is ‘gay.’
Colton Underwood admitted that he was “still nervous” as he came out as gay on Good Morning America, but the Season 23 lead of The Bachelor received nothing but love and support from the “Bachelor Nation” community. The franchise’s host Chris Harrison, who is currently taking a break from hosting The Bachelorette, was one of the first people to react to the news. He shared a photo with Colton and wrote, “Very proud of you today @coltonunderwood Happy to see you stand up and openly live your truth. You have my love and support my friend.”
Tayshia Adams, who replaced Clare Crawley as the lead in Season 16 of The Bachelorette, also offered her support. “@colton I am so proud of you for finally being able to share and live your truth. Sending you love and support!,” Tayshia tweeted.
. @colton I am so proud of you for finally being able to share and live your truth. Sending you love and support! ????✨
Contestants from Colton’s season of The Bachelor also made sure to send their love. “I’m so proud of you, @colton!,” Nicole Lopez-Alvartweeted over a clip from Colton’s interview, while Demi Burnett chose to react with humor by writing, “Now all my gay friends asking me to set them up with Colton lmao.”
Now all my gay friends asking me to set them up with Colton lmao
Other Bachelor stars made sure to also address the controversy surrounding Colton, while still supporting the former NFL player. “I feel for Cassie, happy for Colton,” Season 15 The Bachelorette contestant Mike Johnson tweeted, referring to Colton’s ex Cassie Randolph. Season 14 The Bachelorette contestant Chris Randone also touched on the allegations against Colton by tweeting, “Got nothing but love and support for my guy @colton…everyone has a past but as someone who has a gay sibling, the internal battle is like no other and couldn’t imagine it in the public eye. Hopefully you can live you life freely now and continue to grow that relationship w God.”
After nearly two years of dating, Colton and Cassie announced their amicable breakup in May of 2020. However, Cassie later filed for a restraining order against Colton in Sept. 2020, and claimed in the request reviewed by HollywoodLife that Colton allegedly put a tracking device under her car, sent harassing text messages to Cassie and her friends, and showed up unannounced to her Los Angeles apartment and her parents’ home in Orange County.
Cassie reportedly dropped her temporary restraining order in Nov. 2020, after reaching “a private agreement” with Colton, per TMZ. However, Colton still apologized “for how things ended” and admitted that he “made a lot of bad choices” during his new interview on Good Morning America.
The photo posted on Apr. 14 included William and Kate’s three children. Their eldest Prince George, 7, could be seen standing next to the monarch in Tartan shorts, a short sleeved white shirt and navy knee-socks. He looked so well behaved as he posed with his arms at his sides and smiling into the camera. The Queen held his almost three-year-old little brother Prince Louis on her lap, who would have been around five months old, at the time as he was born in April 2018.
Princess Charlotte, 5, sat on the sofa in between her great grandparents. Always so cheeky when it comes to photographs, Lottie held up her left hand and extended all four fingers outward. She held on to little Louis with her other hand. She looked adorable in a light blue floral dress with bright red Mary Jane shoes and white ankle socks.
Philip was surrounded by the grandchildren of his only daughter, Princess Anne, 70. He had his arm around Isla Phillips, 9, as she sat on the sofa next to him and cradled her baby cousin Lena Tindall, now 2. Lena’s big sister Mia Tindall, 7, stood protectively next to her little sister while wearing a pretty pink dress. Eldest great grandchild — 10-year-old Savannah Phillips — could be seen standing behind the sofa just behind Charlotte.
William and Kate via their @kensingtonroyal Instagram page shared another photo taken at Balmoral in 2015 when Charlotte was just a baby and George was a two-year-old, as they stood on either side of Elizabeth and Philip. “Today we share, along with Members of @theroyalfamily, photographs of The Duke of Edinburgh, remembering him as a father, grandfather and great-grandfather,” they wrote in the caption. The photo of the monarch and her husband with their great grandchildren posted shortly thereafter. Prince Philip’s funeral will be held at St. George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle on Sat. Apr. 19. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, it will be limited to close family only with just 30 people allowed to be present, though the event will be televised.
