Halle Bailey shared a scenic pic as Ariel to the mark the wrap of ‘The Little Mermaid.’ See the snapshot!

Halle Bailey has officially wrapped on Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid! The actress and singer, 21, celebrated the occasion with a photo of herself as Ariel on set on a beach in Sardinia, Italy on Instagram on July 12, rocking a bikini top against the scenic sunset; Halle also penned a sentimental caption about her experience, revealing that it has made her stronger in the face of self doubt.

“and just like that..that’s a wrap,” Halle captioned the post on Monday. “after auditioning for this film when i was 18 just about to turn 19 , to now finishing filming through a pandemic when i turned 21 ..we have finally made it…????i feel so grateful to have experienced this film in all of its glory..it has been the toughest experience being away from everything and everyone i’ve ever known, to feeling self doubt/ loneliness, but also feeling such freedom and perseverance as i’ve reached the end.”

Adding that she was grateful for the experience, Halle gushed over co-stars Jonah Hauer-King (Prince Eric), Jacob Tremblay (Flounder), Javier Bardem (King Triton), Melissa McCarthy (Ursula), Awkwafina (Scuttle), and Daveed Diggs (Sebastian), celebrating the “masters of their craft” who were “welcoming and opening to little old me.” Halle wrote, “i cannot wait for time to speed up so you all can watch this film because it was made with so much love (plus blood sweat and tears).”

Directed by Rob Marshall and set to feature music from the original as well as new songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda and the film’s original composer Alan Menken, the live-action will follow the same general premise of the 1989 animated film. Initially set for a debut earlier this year (with production halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic), the film does not have an official premiere date yet. Disney announced the casting of Halle as Ariel in July 2019, garnering praise for the inclusive casting of a Black Ariel.

Halle’s previous credits include Grown-ish, Let it Shine, and Last Holiday. She and sister Chloe Bailey also headline the Grammy-winning R&B group Chloe x Halle, signed under Beyoncé‘s production company Parkwood Entertainment.

‘The Bachelorette’: Katie Reveals Her Late Father Wasn’t Her Biological Dad

Katie Thurston shared a big secret with Justin Glaze during their one-on-one date on the July 12 episode of ‘The Bachelorette.’

The July 12 episode of The Bachelorette featured a one-on-one date between Katie Thurston and Justin Glaze. The date consisted of them having a fake wedding ceremony, which included saying their vows. It was quite intense and romantic, and took the relationship between Katie and Justin to the next level. However, during the nighttime portion of the date, Katie opened up about why part of the activity was hard for her.

As Katie has shared before, she lost her father in 2012, and thinking about her future wedding day without him is understandably not easy. However, what she hasn’t previously revealed, is that the man who raised her and passed away is not actually her biological dad. “My mom kept that a secret,” Katie admitted.

She added, “It’s hard, because I’m sitting here saying to love your family and appreciate them and they’re such a gift, but this biological father, he wants to be in my life as a dad. But how do I build a relationship with this man I knew nothing about, while also mourning the passing of the man who raised me? Any time I try to get close with him, it’s just a reminder of the fact that my dad who raised me is no longer here.”

Katie fought back tears as she shared her story, and Justin was understanding and compassionate about the situation. “You continue to amaze me with the strength that you have,” he told her. “I thank you for sharing all that with me, and not only validating what I thought you were, but how much more you are and how incredible you are. I’m honored you chose me to be on this date. I want to know everything about you. It’s what makes you you. I want to know how I can support you and affect you in a positive way. I’m really looking forward to what’s to come.”

Katie clearly felt the same way because she gave Justin the rose on his date. She also said that he made her feel “taken care of,” and gushed that she could see herself falling for him. “Tonight feels like the beginning of something great,” Katie revealed. “And it’s crazy to see how one date can change everything.”

Chip & Joanna Gaines Reveal Why Divorce Is ‘Not An Option’ For Them After 18 Years Of Marriage

‘Fixer Upper’ stars Chip and Joanna Gaines talk marriage in a new interview. Watch it here.

Chip and Joanna Gaines are in it for the long haul. The Fixer Upper stars revealed that divorce is simply “not an option” for them in an interview with Access Hollywood published on July 12. According to Chip, 46, that belief is rooted in the fact that he and Joanna, 43, are “not quitters.” The two have been married for over a decade, recently celebrating their 18th wedding anniversary at the end of May.

“One thing I would say is our superpower is that Jo and I are not quitters,” Chip said when asked if the two ever considered “throwing in the towel” during their marriage. “Throwing in the towel is not something that ever comes to mind.” He added, “I would say that happened pretty early in our relationship where we just thought that divorce, or leaving one another, is not really an option for us.”

“Somehow that little foundation has definitely served us well,” he continued. “Because things have definitely been challenging and we’re not perfect and we have issues and trials and errors just like anybody, but I would say that… relationally, we’re in it forever.” While the two have had “multiple opportunities to quit and throw in the towel,” Chip said that “was just not in our DNA.”

“Jo and I keep showing up day after day, and sometimes it’s right, and sometimes it’s not,” he continued. “But we keep putting one foot in front of the other.” The longtime couple tied the knot in May 2003 in Waco, Texas. They share five children, Crew, 3, Drake, 16, Emmie, 11, Ella, 14, and Duke, 13, together. On top of launching their much-delayed Magnolia Network and headlining HGTV’s Fixer Upper, the two launched the magazine Magnolia Journal, opened up Magnolia Market at the Silos, and penned the 2016 book The Magnolia Story together.

In the book, Joanna explained that the duo “function better together.” She wrote, “We seem to give each other energy. We function better together than we do apart, and I don’t think either one of us has ever felt the urge to say, ‘I need a break from you.’” She continued, “Don’t get me wrong, we’ve certainly had our share of disappointments and arguments, but we just always wanted to tackle our issues together.”

‘RHOP’s Wendy Osefo Reveals Who She’s Siding With After Karen & Gizelle’s Epic Premiere Fight

RHOP’s Season 6 premiere ended with Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant going head to head, and now, Dr. Wendy Osefo is breaking down their latest fight.

The Real Housewives of Potomac‘s Season 6 premiere reminded fans of the end of Season 5 since they both ended with a major fight between Karen Huger, 58, and Gizelle Bryant, 50! Now, Dr. Wendy Osefo, 35, is revealing who’s side she’s taking. “Team Wendy!” Dr. Wendy joked to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY during an episode of TVTalk on Instagram Live on July 12. Clearly — she’s remaining neutral. She explained, “I understand the people that are Team Gizelle and I understand the people that are Team Karen because they all play an intricate role in this puzzle piece right here.”

Karen and Gizelle fought a lot last season, and they blamed each other for just about everything. From Gizelle saying Karen shouldn’t have defended former cast member Monique Samuels, 37, following her physical fight with Candiace Dillard, 34, to Karen saying Gizelle wasn’t being honest about her relationship status with ex Jamal Bryant — they just haven’t been able to see eye to eye on much for a really long time, and the July 11 season premiere was no different.

The July 11 episode showed them getting into a massive fight at Wendy’s house. After Wendy said she wanted everyone to get along, Gizelle immediately jumped in saying that it would be tough for her, and Karen clapped back. “Me and drunk Karen will probably never be good,” Gizelle was quick to say. “You don’t want this,” Karen chimed in quickly as the two proceeded to yell back and forth at each other.

Dr. Wendy can understand why fans are so enthralled by these two after having her own tiffs with Karen over the years, though teases that’s about to change. “But at the end of the day, shout out to Karen,” Dr. Wendy said. “Karen and I really blossom this year and you guys are going to see that as well, but what I will say about our entire cast is that as a cast, we are all amazing and we all play a pivotal role.”

Fans have an entire season to look forward to with the fighting between these two, but could the women actually end up being friends? “Listen, I think Gizelle and Karen are just the gift that keeps on giving and I love their dynamic because to me, I think that they really, really love each other,” Dr. Wendy added. “So to see them spar sometimes, I’m like, “I can’t believe you guys are doing this because it’s really clear that you guys really, really love each other. It gets really intense this season but in a light hearted type of way. I don’t think that they go for the jugular, but they just go at it.”

The Real Housewives of Potomac airs Sunday nights at 8pm on Bravo.

 

Beyonce Puts Colorful Mini Dress On Full Display In New Photos After Shopping Date With Rumi, 4

Beyonce took to Instagram to share a series of new eye-catching photos of herself confidently posing in a orange, yellow, and turquoise mini dress and matching earrings, and fans were full of compliments.

Beyonce, 39, is proving she knows how to pose in a  multi-colored mini dress for the summer and look incredible while doing it! The singer shared a set of four new Instagram photos that showed her flaunting a highly stylish fashion choice along with pointy dark blue sunglasses on July 12. The dress included a section of orange on the top side, yellow on the opposite top side and down the middle, and bright turquoise on one bottom side and she paired it with matching colorful dangling earrings.

Her long gorgeous hair was down and curled at the ends and she wore mint green heels that had wraparound sections around her ankles. She also carried a tiny blue purse while giving the camera a fierce look. She didn’t add any caption to the pics but she surely didn’t need one since it quickly received a large number of compliments.

“You’re really having a hot girl summer!” one fan exclaimed while another gushed over how the colors looked “good” on her. Others left hearts and heart-eyed emojis and another wrote, “And just like that my day got better.”

Beyonce’s latest pretty pics come just one day after she was photographed taking her daughter Rumi, 4, shopping at FAO Schwarz in New York City. She was wearing the same multi-colored dress and shoes she’s wearing in her new pics, during the outing, along with a sheer blue long-sleeved top over it. Her little mini me also looked adorable as she stood next to her mom while wearing a white tank top, dark jeans, and white sneakers.

The toy store visit is just one of many ways Beyonce and her family have seemed to enjoy their summer. She was also recently seen boarding a helicopter in the Hamptons before flying to the Big Apple to have dinner with her husband JAY-Z, 51, in Brooklyn on July 7. Before that, the pair reportedly had dinner with Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, who is reportedly buying Jay-Z’s music streaming service, TIDAL, for around $300 million.

Kailyn Lowry Takes A Dominican Republic Vacation With Her 4 Kids: ‘Chaos’ — See Photos

Kailyn Lowry and sons Isaac, Lincoln, Lux, and Creed are in the Caribbean! See the vacation photos.

Kailyn Lowry and her sons are in the Caribbean for a summer vacation! The Teen Mom 2 star, 29, and her boys Isaac, 11, Lincoln, 7, Lux, 3, and Creed, 11 months, departed for Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic from Philadelphia for a tropical getaway this week. Kailyn shared a snapshot of her boys from the airport on July 11, captioning the post, “Kail & the chaos heads to Punta Cana.”

The family of five has been enjoying Caribbean meals, taking a swim in the pool, and sharing hugs, per the boys’ respective Instagram accounts run by their mom.

 

“Right where he needs to be,” Kailyn captioned a photo of Lux by the pool on his account, adding, “Buenos días from the Dominican Republic” in another snapshot of Creed and Lux enjoying a hug on Creed’s account. Isaac and Lincoln are captured in another photo on Isaac’s IG against some scenic palms, holding up the peace sign and smiling at the camera.

Kailyn shares her four sons with former partners Javi Marroquin, Jonathan Rivera, and Chris Lopez. The getaway comes after Kailyn filed a defamation lawsuit against her Teen Mom 2 co-star Briana DeJesus. According to court documents obtained by HollywoodLife on July 8, Kailyn filed the suit against Briana, 27, after she alleged that Kailyn physically assaulted Chris and broke into his mother’s home in an interview. Kailyn’s legal team has called the assertions false, arguing that they were made “for the purpose of causing” Kailyn “harm” and for Briana to “gain additional media attention for herself.”

Her legal team has requested compensatory damages, as well as a jury trial. During the interview in question, Briana alleged that Kailyn got physical with Chris during a dispute over their son Lux’s haircut, citing her arrest in October 2020. (The charges were dropped in February.) “Kail is sitting on the show legitimately filming about a wallpaper color choice when she could be filming about a domestic abuse situation with Chris that I was told she was trying to hide,” Briana told Celebuzz in June following Kailyn’s absence from a June 8 episode of Teen Mom 2.

“While I understand Kail (and all of us) want to be shown overcoming our struggles and that we all take pride in our names — and Kail takes pride in her brand and her podcasts — at the end of the day, she shouldn’t try to cover up the real her or things that are going on in her real life,” Briana said. “It comes off as exceptionally inauthentic and an insult to her other cast members.”
