The photographer who took photos of Border Patrol agents on horseback chasing down Haitian migrants is speaking out.

The viral photos showed frightened Haitian people desperately clinging to bags of food and fleeing while agents on horseback chased them.

The optics of white federal agents herding Black men like cattle sparked outrage around the world.

Democrats Maxine Waters and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused the border agents of “whipping” the Haitian men.

Speaking with KTSM, photographer Paul Ratje said he and his colleagues never saw agents whipping anyone.

“Some of the Haitian men started running, trying to go around the horses,” said Ratje, who is based in Las Cruces. He said he took the pictures from the Mexico side of the border.

Ratje said a photo frozen in time can give the impression that the agent used his long reins to whip people.

“I’ve never seen them whip anyone. He was swinging [the reins], but it can be misconstrued when you’re looking at the picture.”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki called the images “horrific”, and she said the agents in the photos have been suspended.

On Thursday, the White House issued a statement saying Border Patrol agents are no longer allowed to use horses to patrol the border.

Find out everything to know about ‘Blue Bloods’ actor Tom Selleck’s wife of more than three decades — British actress Jillie Mack.

Blue Bloods star Tom Selleck and former West End performer Jillie Mack are among the most low key couples in Hollywood. The A-list Magnum P.I. star has been married to British born Jillie for more than three decades, however very little is known about their romance. The couple met when Tom was in London filming the movie Lassiter, and his future wife caught his eye when he saw the stage production of Cats on the West End. Here’s everything you need to know about Jillie.

Who Is Jillie Mack?

Jillie was born in Wiltshire, England and is a dancer and actress. She’s appeared on the small screen in TV shows like Frasier, SilverfoxER, Hooperman, and even her husband’s show, Magnum, P.I. However, it was her turn as Rumpleteazer in the London production of Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s Cats that caught the eye of Tom. Since falling in love with the American actor, Jillie has relocated Stateside, and stepped back from her life as a performer. She isn’t active on any social media platforms, however she often accompanies Tom to major events and film premieres.

How Long Have Jillie & Tom Been Married For? 

Tom Selleck and Jillie Mack have been married for more than 30 years. The pair met in 1983 during the successful West End production of the musical Cats, and Tom was reportedly smitten from the first time he saw Jillie. In a 1987 interview with People, Tom’s Lassiter co-star, Jane Seymour, opened up about his Cats obsession. “He kept telling me how great Cats was,” she said. “I thought it was good, but I couldn’t see going back a dozen times.”

Four years after they met, in 1987, Tom revealed the pair had wed in a top secret ceremony in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. The couple went above and beyond to keep the ceremony out of the tabloids, according to People. The outlet reported that all arrangements were made under the pseudonyms “Tom Jenkins” and “Suzie Mark.” Even the reverend who married them didn’t know their true identity until minutes before the ceremony! It’s also believed Tom only allowed Polaroid cameras to be used at the ceremony so photos could not be leaked to the press.

“They were both nervous, like any other couple about to get married,” their wedding officiant Rev. David Immel told the magazine. “He was very concerned that the service be heartfelt, very concerned for her that the service be meaningful. He is a very warm, caring man.” The couple now live on a 65-acre ranch in Ventura, California, which they’ve owned since 1988.

Do Jillie & Tom Have Any Kids?

Tom Selleck and Jillie Mack have one child together, a 31-year-old daughter Hannah who is the spitting image of her mom. She is now a professional equestrian, and previously opened up to Equestrian Living about her A-list parents. “Because [my parents are] both artists, they believe in the idea that you have to be very passionate about what you do to be successful. They encouraged me to be passionate about it and immersed in it, and from there it was kind of on me how much I wanted it. They always let me take the lead. If I wanted to move barns or trainers, that was my decision,” she explained.

Tom also has an adopted son, Kevin, from his first marriage to model Jacqueline Ray. The former couple said ‘I do’ in 1971, when they were both in their mid-20s. They were married for 10 years, bur eventually called it quits in 1982, reportedly because Tom’s move to Hawaii to film Magnum P.I. was too challenging. He later revealed that he quit the show in order to prioritize his family. “I quit Magnum to have a family,” Tom told People in 2012. “It took a long time to get off the train, but I try very hard to have balance, and this ranch has helped me do that. We both thought it was the best environment for [Hannah] to grow up.”

During his decade long first marriage, Tom adopted Kevin Shepherd, who became Kevin Selleck when he turned 21. He is now 54 and is a musician and actor with credits in Scream 2 and Magnum P.I. It seems Tom’s family life is incredibly healthy and happy, and makes a point to be open and honest with Jillie. “[We] have a pretty good partnership,” he told the New York Daily News back in 1999. “We don’t do anything or make any decisions without consulting each other. And if one of us makes a decision involving [our daughter], the other parent completely supports that position, even if you disagree.”

Kyle Richards Says Andy Was “Relentless” Against Erika at RHOBH Reunion, Addresses Her “Confusing” Stories

Published

Kyle Richards Says Andy Cohen Was "Relentless" Against Erika Jayne at RHOBH Reunion, Explains Why Some of Her Stories Were "Confusing"

Kyle Richards is confirming what’s been widely reported and teased in the recently-released trailer for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion: Andy Cohen “went hard” on Erika Jayne.

With the four-part special just days away, Kyle admitted to feeling that Andy’s questioning of Erika was “relentless” before applauding Erika as “supportive and kind” and explaining why many of her season 11 stories were likely “confusing” to viewers.

“I was like, ‘My God, this is relentless,’” Kyle recalled to Us Weekly of Andy’s reunion behavior toward Erika on October 8. “But he has a hard job. He knows the audience is expecting these questions and expecting answers. I know it was hard for him. I mean, my makeup artist, who was there, she was like, ‘I was feeling so bad for Erika. Oh, my God. That was like a nightmare for her.’ And I’m like, ‘He has to ask these questions.’”

While Kyle knew many questions needed answers, that didn’t make the taping any easier.

“It’s so emotionally draining… We couldn’t get out of bed for a day or two. [Erika] probably couldn’t for two weeks,” Kyle admitted. “It was very, very difficult for her. It’s never easy for anybody, but she was, for sure, the person that had the hardest time in this reunion.”

Despite the allegations against Erika, which include claims of embezzling $2 million from widows and orphans of plane crash victims, Kyle said her opinion of her castmate hasn’t wavered.

“Erika has been nothing but a great friend to me and supportive and kind. I know that she puts on a tough girl act, but she is a very sensitive person. And I think with so many people who don’t know her coming at her, she’s kind of had to put up the shield,” Kyle explained.

During a number of moments on RHOBH season 11, Erika attempted to speak to her castmates about what was going on in her life. However, because some of her stories seemed elaborate or even contrived (especially her claims about Thomas Girardi confronting a robber and being hospitalized, and her son, Tommy Zizzo, rolling his car five times in Southern California), even Kyle was confused at times. That said, Kyle believes there is a logical explanation.

“There are a lot of things I didn’t get, [stories] that were not clear to me. It’s hard when you’re talking on camera and she’s probably nervous about what she’s saying. You don’t know what’s going through her mind and the audience doesn’t always get that, but I could tell she was nervous. And that’s why some of the stories were probably confusing for people,” she explained.

Luckily, when it comes to the lingering questions of season 11, viewers will soon get the answers they’ve been looking for, which Kyle was happy to see, especially for Erika.

“There’s a lot of things that people have been talking about. They’re going to find out, ‘Oh, I get it. OK. That makes more sense,’” Kyle revealed. “So I was happy for her in that sense, even though it was very difficult for her.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 reunion begins airing Wednesday, October 13, at 8/7c on Bravo.

Within the last several years, Jordan Ward has emerged as one of R&B’s rising stars. Developing an affinity for music and dance at a very early age, Jordan polished his skillset after first trying his hand as a choir member before transitioning into musical theatre. His influences include a diverse roster of music luminaries ranging from Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Lauryn Hill, Kanye West, Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G., Nas, and more. After first experimenting with rap, Ward later focused on singing and dancing. By 18, he moved to Los Angeles and joined Justin Bieber’s Purpose Tour in 2016. Ward’s dance abilities earned him gigs as a dancer for Janet Jackson and Beyonce, as he appeared in the singer’s Homecoming documentary for her epic Coachella performance.

In 2017, Ward began his musical quest after releasing his EP, A Peak at the Summit. It wasn’t until 2019 that Ward’s breakthrough became the talk of R&B. His debut album ‘Valley Hopefuls’ was propelled by his single “Okok (Hibachi)” and “Sandiego,” which was produced by singer Arin Ray and music producer heavyweight No ID. Now, Ward’s silky croons and elevated songwriting abilities are at peak form as he readies his journey into universal acclaim in the R&B world.

Watch the video for his single “Lil Baby Crush” below:

We love it! That was so sweet. We’ve all had a lil baby crush, right?!

Following the release of his first single, “Lil Baby Crush,” St Louis polymath Jordan Ward unleashes his new EP Remain Calm. The five-track effort proves to be an evocative showcase by the budding singer, who eyes unyielding love and happiness. Established in standout records “Standards” and “Thrive,” Jordan’s buttery vocals and gentle energy are supple enough to keep listeners enthralled for the long run. After a successful trek as an opener on Duckwrth’s ‘A SuperGood Tour’ last month, Remain Calm is the next step in cementing Ward’s leap into stardom. In honor of his new EP, Ward held an intimate release party in Los Angeles to celebrate his journey, where he treated attendees to a live performance.

According to Red Bull, Prince Wayne has been dancing his whole life but only began battling four years ago. Boasting a diverse repertoire of dance styles, Prince Wayne is on a journey to turn his passion into his profession and he credits dance to being his main form of creative expression, noting it helps him keep his “mind, body, soul, heart and spirit in alignment.”

Cumberland County Sheriff

A U.S. Army sergeant who fatally shot his pregnant mistress as she drove on a Georgia highway, was arrested in North Carolina.

Alonzo Dargan Jr., 30, was arrested at Fort Bragg in Cumberland County on Thursday.

Dargan was on active duty at Fort Bragg as a staff sergeant, Channel 2 Action News reports.

Dargan is accused of killing Akeila Ware, 29, of LaGrange, Ga., and their unborn child, as she drove on Highway 18 in Troup County, Ga. on Tuesday, October 5.

Dargan has been charged with murder, feticide and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Authorities initially believed Ware was shot during a road rage incident.

After Ware was shot, her bullet-riddled Honda Accord veered off the highway and crashed near E. Drummond Road.

Georgia State Patrol troopers responding to a report of a single-car crash found Ware unresponsive inside the car, authorities said.

Ware and her unborn child were pronounced dead at a Columbus-area hospital.

Ware, a single mother of five, was expecting her 6th child.

Dargan is married with children. None of Ware’s other children were fathered by Dargan.

Troup County Sheriff James Woodruff announced Dargan’s arrest in a press conference on Friday morning.

“I could not believe somebody had shot and killed a young mother with five children,” Woodruff said. “And on top of that, killed her and she had a baby inside her that resulted in the death of that baby.”

Woodruff said Dargan grew up in Troup County.

Charlie Sheen Spotted On Solo Grocery Shopping Trip After Denise Richards Child Support Drama

Published

Following his child support victory in court, Charlie Sheen stepped out to shop for some groceries in Malibu.

Charlie Sheen stepped out for a grocery run ahead of the weekend in Malibu on October 8. The former Two and a Half Men star, 56, was photographed on Friday after purchasing two tote bags’ worth of sustenance. He looked casual in a flannel shirt and sweatpants, covering up his mouth with a surgical face mask.

The outing comes after the actor scored a victory in court on October 4. A judge granted his request to stop paying child support to ex-wife Denise Richards for their two daughters, Sami, 17, and Lola, 16, since both of them now live with him. Charlie first filed the request in December 2019. Denise, 50, reportedly did not file any opposing paperwork.

The actor will now pay his ex-wife a sum total of zero dollars, per the court documents obtained by HollywoodLife. As he departed the courthouse that day, Charlie called the decision “fair” when approached by Us Weekly. “I think what transpired today is extremely fair,” he said. “It speaks to not just today, but it speaks historically to that same fairness.”

It has been reported, however, that Denise was “blindsided” by the court date and the ruling. It appears that the actress may have missed the hearing since she is currently traveling for work, per her Instagram post from October 2. A source told PEOPLE that the couple’s youngest daughter Lola lives with both parents — and accused Charlie of “manipulating the situation.”

“Charlie filed two years ago and kept pushing the court date, so Denise was very surprised that it happened yesterday while she is out of town filming,” the source said. “She was blindsided. . . Lola does not live with Charlie. She lives with both of her parents and stays with Charlie when Denise is out of town. When Denise is back, Lola will be with her.”

The source added, “This is very disappointing for Denise, but also not surprising. Charlie is pitting the girls against their mother, which is horrible.” A second insider, however, told the outlet that Denise “has known about the court date for six months,” resulting in conflicting information. The two were previously married between 2002 and 2006.

The court decision comes after a source told HL in September that eldest daughter Sami moved out of Denise’s home because she didn’t agree with her “mother’s rules.” The source said, “[Denise] and Charlie have different rules and styles of parenting and [they] didn’t see eye to eye. Sami decided she liked Charlie’s rules better and wanted to go and live with her father . . . Denise is incredibly saddened, but knows she is doing her best as a mother.”

Say What? Raising Cane’s Sends Corporate Staff To Work In-Store Amid Staff Shortages

When the pandemic came in like a thief in the night millions, around the world were laid off at a moment’s notice, sending millions to unemployment benefits in order to not completely drown in their bills. The harsh reality of the situation is that it broke the cycle of people working under-paying jobs they likely would have never left.

Many are looking to get back to work after the unemployment benefits have since expired, but they aren’t willing to risk their health and safety for minimum wage. Many have found work in higher paying jobs and work from home jobs, leaving minimum wage jobs and fast food restaurants with staffing shortages. Instead of raising wages, though, everyone has weird solutions to help fix the problem. Some McDonald’s locations have reportedly offered bonuses and even iPhones–but Raising Cane’ may have the wildest solution we’ve seen yet.

The chicken finger chain is taking their corporate staff and making them work as fry cooks and cashiers in their stores. Of course, this isn’t a great long term solution, but corporations are going to any length to avoid raising wages. In the end, they might as well give in as every solution thus far hasn’t worked.

Tom Selleck’s Kids: Meet His Children Kevin & Hannah

Published

on

Tom Selleck

Tom Selleck is a proud father of two adult children, son Kevin and daughter Hannah. Find out more about the actor’s kids here.

Tom Selleck, 76, is known by most as the beloved actor whose starred in shows like MagnumP.I., Friends and Blue Bloods. But off the screen, Tom is a doting father to his two children: son Kevin Selleck, 55, and daughter Hannah Selleck, 32. Tom welcomed his kids under fairly different circumstances with two different women, but he loves them both the same. And while his children are now grown, Tom still holds them dear to his heart. “You never stop being a dad even though your kids are grown,” he told Parade in September 2018.

Below is everything you need to know about Kevin and Hannah Selleck.

Kevin Selleck

Tom was previously married to model Jacqueline Ray from 1971 to 1982, during which he adopted Jacqueline’s son Kevin from a previous relationship. Kevin, who was born Kevin Shepard, was 21 years old when he was adopted by the famed actor. Kevin went on to join the music industry, forming the rock band Toxic in 1993 with Emerson Hart, Jeff Russo, Dan Lavery and Dan Rothchild. The group released its debut album, Lemon Parade, in 1996 before Kevin quit the band, citing personal and family issues. However, reports stated that his exit was due to a fight between Kevin and another member of the group.

Kevin also briefly took up acting at one point. In 1987, he appeared in an episode of Magnum, P.I. alongside Tom. A decade later, he wrote the soundtrack to the horror film Scream 2, according to his IMDb page. Over the years, reports have stated that Kevin has struggled with drug addition. He was reportedly sent to the Betty Ford Rehabilitation Center at Tom’s behest, and eventually got clean. However, Tom has never publicly spoken about his son’s alleged struggles. Today, Kevin is seemingly healthy and has six children with his wife, costume designer Annabel Selleck.

Hannah Selleck

Tom’s second child, Hannah, was born on December 16, 1988. Hannah’s mom is actress Jillie Joan Mack, whom Tom married on August 7, 1987, five years after he split from Jacqueline. Tom and Jillie are still together today, though they’re not often seen out together in public. Hannah is not in the spotlight as much as her dad, but there are some interesting facts about her to note.

For starters, Hannah is an established equestrian pro. Per reports, she’s won a string of medals at various horseback riding competitions, including the 2010 Blenheim Summer Classic in California. In 2011, she told Equestrian Living magazine that her parents convinced her to pursue horseback riding. “Because [my parents are] both artists, they believe in the idea that you have to be very passionate about what you do to be successful,” she said. “They encouraged me to be passionate about it and immersed in it, and from there it was kind of on me how much I wanted it. They always let me take the lead. If I wanted to move barns or trainers, that was my decision.”

Hannah additionally pursued her career in horseback riding by founding Descanso Farm, a horse breeding company that Tom is also involved with. “We want to show that we can produce horses in the States, having them on the ground as foals and bringing them up through the young horse classes,” Hannah said in her EL interview. “But we don’t want to just get the horse to the ring quickly; I want to make it right so that it has a long career.” Aside from equestrian, Hannah has also dipped her toe in modeling. She’s reportedly appeared on the covers of magazines like Palm Beach Illustrated, Equestrian Living, and Horse & Style.

RHOBH: Erika Jayne Slams Garcelle, Sutton and Crystal’s LA Times Article as “Fiction,” Lisa and Kathy Weigh in

Published

RHOBH

Erika Jayne clapped back at her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmates on Twitter after coming across their recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, which was titled, “‘We could be implicated’: How scandal consumed ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.’”

As other cast members reacted to the article on Instagram, Erika shaded the claims of Garcelle Beauvais, Sutton Stracke, and Crystal Kung-Minkoff as “pure fiction” as she reacted to Garcelle’s statement regarding potential implication.

“Pure fiction,” Erika tweeted, along with a link to the article on October 7.

In a second tweet, Erika responded to a fan who suggested she “didn’t even read the article.”

“Honey, [I’m] the lead… ‘We could be implicated’ No, you can’t. Period,” Erika replied.

As Erika called her RHOBH co-stars out on Twitter, Sutton shared a group photo on Instagram.

“Fun day doing this interview with [Garcelle Beauvais] and [Crystal Kung-Minkoff] for the [Los Angeles Times]. And, yes, I’ve read it three times,” Sutton wrote in the caption of her photo, also adding a winking face.

As RHOBH fans will recall, Sutton took it upon herself to read a Los Angeles Times article written about Erika and the legal troubles she was facing with Thomas Girardi, including claims of embezzlement and numerous lawsuits, several times before questioning Erika about what she knew of the alleged crimes.

In the comments section of Sutton’s post, Lisa shared a message in which she joked that her RHOBH castmates had created their own friend group, much like she, Kyle Richards, Erika, Dorit Kemsley, and Teddi Mellencamp did amid season 10.

“Ahhh [your] very own Fox Force Five,” she wrote, according to a screenshot from Comments by Bravo on Instagram.

“I don’t like labels,” Sutton replied.

Although Sutton doesn’t like labels, Garcelle doesn’t seem to have a problem with them and actually deemed the trio “the three house-keteers” on a post of her own.

Following the sharing of Garcelle’s Instagram post, Kathy Hilton weighed in.

“Great article [L.A. Times]!!!” she said in a comment.
