Brooke Shields braved a cold plunge pool on Thanksgiving, but looked amazing while doing it!
Brooke Shields, 56, looked absolutely amazing in a strapless red swimsuit on Thanksgiving! The actress donned the one piece on Thursday, Nov. 25 as she bravely stepped into a cold plunge pool, which are believed to reduce muscle pain and inflammation by instantly numbing the nerves surrounding joints. She appropriately set the video to Bill Withers “Lovely Day” — although, we aren’t sure that cold water was that lovely!
“New Thanksgiving tradition,” The Blue Lagoon star quipped in her caption, including a turkey and snowflake emoji. While the weather looked sunny, it was more like a spring day in Los Angeles with temperatures falling around 70 degrees. Brooke hilariously reacted to the cold water as she dipped a toe in, opting to keep her long brunette locks up in a bun to avoid getting wet. She slowly backed into the water, rigidly putting her arms in before fully lowering her body and shoulders.
Several of her famous pals got a kick out of the pic, including Christie Brinkley, 67. “Body-ody-ody‼️” the super model commented with three fire emojis, seemingly referencing “Body” by Megan Thee Stallion. Ali Wentworth quipped, “You’re supposed to cook the Turkey not yourself…” while Sophia Bush reacted, “Cold plunge!? LOVE.” Canadian television host Kuljeet Kaila hilariously added, “In Cali? That’s like Canadian summer weather.”
It’s no surprise to see Brooke looking so good: the actress recently opened up about feeling more “confident” as she hit her mid-50s. “I feel stronger, I feel sexier, I feel less burdened by: ‘Oh, what do they think of me?’” she said in an interview to Irish Times while promoting her new Netflix movie A Castle For Christmas.
“I’m not encumbered in the same way that I spent a great deal of my youth in. I still care about people, but I don’t put myself in this position to feel ‘less than’. And all of a sudden, I was like: ‘Why am I not represented?’ Why am I told: ‘You’re over because you’re not in your 20s’? I’m 56 and I feel more empowered now than I ever did,’” she added.
When the title for Real Housewives of Miami is Bling (Larsa’s) Boobs(Adriana) and Bickering (pretty much everyone) you can make the assumption we are going on another girl trip to hell. You will witness a grab for mojitos figuratively and a change in the power structure. Let us fly away to the Hamptons, shall we?
We pick back up with Nicole who is still butting her heads with her lothario dad. He thinks being there monetarily is acceptable and has no desire to be there emotionally. Nicole thinks he cannot make good decisions due to his excessive drinking and should not continue to just procreate. She taps out when her dad tries flattery by telling her she is beautiful. She calls her mom Sirel and is sobbing since her dad disappointed her— yet again.
Lisa is packing for the trip to the Hamptons, and she is showing Lenny her clothing choices. Lenny does not care that she may look naked in some of her clothes. She thinks that he will enjoy the peace and quiet without her being there and might make a phone call or two. Lenny seems really checked out and they do not seem to have the chemistry they used to have.
Nicole and Anthony are chatting about what happened with her dad. She is emotionally drained after talking to her dad. Nicole wants to go to the Hamptons to support Larsa, but she is not in the mood to have fun. She is going to regret being so supportive of her dear homewrecker friend.
Larsa is trying to Facetime with Scottie through a phone call with her son. She cannot get him to give her two minutes of his time. Larsa thinks Scottie is dragging his feet selling the Florida house even though he has not lived there in a while. This telephone call is pretty telling that she cannot even get her son/Scottie to respect her enough to speak to her on camera.
Julia shares in the van with the other ladies how Martina has women flirting with her all the time. She claims that Martina gives out a guy vibe. Is Julia trying to defend her flirtatious behavior? That argument does not fly since Martina is not reciprocating by flirting back with these women. Lisa thinks Julia is trying to see how many women she can turn. She just might have a point there.
The ladies are pleased with Larsa’s choice of homes. It is a contemporary home in Montauk on the beach with a pool. There are only five bedrooms so we can expect a housewife showdown on who gets the best room— again.
Adriana and Julia are trying to score the best room. She strips down and jumps in the bathtub so she can mark her territory. Adriana is showing off her thirty-two triple Ds to everyone including the realtor who is walking everyone through the house. Larsa is pissed that Adriana came in so aggressive and took over the room meant for her. Adriana looks rough in this scene and is in desperate need of a hair wash so let her wash off and get out of your tub. She has been showing her boobs and her desperation for that mojito and proves she is the thirstiest for attention.
Julia is now washing Adriana’s back and dribbling ice cubes on her chest. She obviously is not concerned that Martina is going to see this. Lisa is downstairs stomping her little feet and is having a temper tantrum over having to share a room. Marysol needs the wheelchair accessible room since they need easy access to all the facilities in the home. She has the best excuse IMO since we usually give preference to our elders on our girl’s trips.
Adriana thinks that there is a pecking order, and she thinks Lisa and Larsa have appointed themselves the queen bees. Lisa will go to a hotel if she does not get her own room. She thinks Alexia has been snapping at her when she speaks up. Adriana thinks that Larsa has been out of this group for 10 years and suggests she has lost her ranking in this group. No, my darling Adriana that is you who has lost your footing! Kiki just wants to settle this so she can go poop after having coffee. Let the woman go poo for god’s sakes!
Julia cannot understand why they cannot talk through this without being aggressive. Nicole then calls Alexia a hairy spider. Is she suggesting that Alexia could potentially eat a male spider (Todd) and protects her nest filled with (Peter) with silk and excuses? Nicole thinks that Alexia treats them like her minions when she demanded that she take a photo of her and Larsa at a club. Marysol jumps in to defend her best friend Alexia since she is dealing with so much. Alexia does not care that she comes across as argumentative. She brought Nicole into the group and feels she has inserted herself in Lisa’s a*s and took her BFF Marysol’s mojito away.
Julia thinks these women are like a bunch of clucking chickens. She could have stayed on her farm for this nonsense and listened to her cursing bird. Alexia refuses to apologize for her aggressive behavior. She is a frustrated wannabe attorney. Alexia that would have come in handy with Peter’s legal issues you have had to deal with.
Alexia shares with Adriana and Marysol that the rift between Todd and Peter has been resolved. She still does not have a wedding venue and is concerned they might not find one. Alexia wants to trap her prey marry Todd so she can have a happy united family.
Julia calls Martina and tells her about Adriana’s desperate grab for attention. Clever idea since she may not appreciate seeing that bathtub scene with Adriana. Marysol reflects on if her mom were there, and she would not have tolerated this room nonsense. She misses her mom and how she dealt with drama. Mama Elsa would steal the show from everyone and checked all of them on their behavior.
Alexia calls Todd and tells him about the room drama. She cannot believe that Lisa brought her hair stylist to the Hamptons. Alexia does not think she will survive with these divas until Friday. Lisa refuses to defend her choices to look good and take care of herself.
The chef has created a beautiful seafood feast for everyone, and the ladies decide to start without Lisa. Marysol decides to play a very shady game about who you trust the least. She gets some pushback from the girls and how this will be ugly. Marysol is clearly using this game to target Nicole tells the group she trusts Nicole the least. Marysol shares that Nicole has talked shit about all the other ladies. She says that Nicole has made fun of Lisa and Lenny’s house. Marysol is gunning for Nicole by telling her that she knows that she called Larsa a hooker. Production shows that Alexia was the one who was slut shaming Larsa.
Nicole will only say that she and Lisa are stylishly different. She denies that she bashed Lisa and Lenny’s home or Lisa’s style. Larsa calls Nicole out and how she changed when she met Anthony. She suggests that she left her broke schoolteacher for the wealthier Anthony. Nicole defends herself saying that she was separated from her ex before meeting Anthony. Nicole does an excellent job telling them that they are all guilty of judging each other. It is very hypocritical of all of them to suggest that Nicole is the only guilty one.
Lisa wants clarification on why Nicole has misconceptions about her. Larsa then rudely shuts Lisa down when she tries to speak up for herself and suggests that she should remain Switzerland like she always does. Larsa then tells Nicole that they could shame her for having a child out of wedlock. She just did by saying that. Julia cannot believe that they are going there when she had three kids with three different men out of wedlock.
Nicole shares that her BFF Alexia said that Marysol is bored, and she is just trying to make herself relevant by marrying Steve. She is willing to put her son’s life on the line that Alexia told her that and is not backing down. Alexia claims that Nicole has called Larsa a homewrecker. Larsa is so arrogant telling Nicole that she just got here 5 seconds ago. Julia tries to shut everyone down and tells them they should give Nicole the benefit of the doubt. Adriana who is suspiciously quiet is not getting involved in this mess. She is too busy chowing down on her food. Adriana does now want anyone to start sharing the shade she has thrown behind their backs.
Lisa finally shuts this conversation down and makes a very eloquent argument. She says that people often have misconceptions about her and Lenny. Lisa knows people once they get to know her, they will change their mind. They all finally decide to call it a night. Lisa gets a cot in Alexia and Marysol’s room and they joke about being a “ping pong full.” Well, if this is how the trip is starting it does not seem to be a relaxing get away.
Next week the trip continues and Guerdy joins the group. Alexia tells Nicole she will not come between her and Marysol’s friendship. Have a great weekend everyone!
Four women who accused the actor Danny Masterson of rape can move forward with a harassment lawsuit against the Church of Scientology, a California appeals court ruled Wednesday (Jan. 19, 2022).
The suit was filed by women who said they were stalked and harassed by agents of the church after they reported to police that they had been raped by Masterson — a Scientologist who has been criminally charged. The husband of one of the women is also a plaintiff.
Masterson, who was a star on the sitcom That ’70s Show, faces charges of raping three women between 2001 and 2003. He has denied the charges and a criminal trial is pending.
The plaintiffs are suing the church, alleging that after going to the police, they were subjected to a campaign of harassment carried out by its agents.
The plaintiffs said agents of the Church of Scientology surveilled them, hacked their security systems, filmed them, chased them, killed or attempted to kill their pets, set fires outside their homes, and posted ads purporting to be from them soliciting anal sex from strangers. The church has denied any harassment.
The Times generally does not identify victims of alleged sexual assault unless they choose to fully identify themselves.
The church argued that the case should remain out of the courts because the women who are suing signed agreements forfeiting their right to sue the church and agreeing to arbitrate any claims against it before a panel of Scientologists in a process known as religious arbitration.
In a 39-page ruling released Wednesday, the panel of judges concluded that the case could move forward in a court of law because the harassment had occurred after the plaintiffs had left the church.
“Scientology takes the position that petitioners agreed to its dispute resolution procedures as a condition of joining the church,” the justices wrote. “It argues that even though petitioners have left the church, they are still bound by the terms of their contracts. We reject this argument.”
The decision concludes: “In effect, Scientology suggests that one of the prices of joining its religion (or obtaining a single religious service) is eternal submission to a religious forum — a sub silencio waiver of the practitioner’s right to extricate themselves from the faith. The Constitution forbids a price that high.”

He wrote: “RIP Meat Loaf, 74. One of rock music’s all-time great characters whose seminal iconic album Bat Out Of Hell is one of the biggest-selling records in history.
“A wondrously talented, flamboyant, funny, outrageous and rebellious chameleon. Sad news.”
Actor Stephen Fry recalled his work with Meat Loaf on British comedy and music show ‘Saturday Live’.
He said: “I hope paradise is as you remember it from the dashboard light, Meat Loaf.
“Had a fun time performing a sketch with him on Saturday Live way back in the last century.”
And music mogul Pete Waterman heaped praise on his “unique voice”.
He added: “Meat Loaf was this larger than life character with a unique voice, that first album, Bat Out Of Hell was just amazing.”
Meat Loaf – born Marvin Lee Aday before changing his name to Michael Lee Aday – passed away with his wife Deborah by his side.
A statement on his official Facebook page read: “Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight with his wife Deborah by his side. Daughters Pearl and Amanda and close friends have been with him throughout the last 24 hours.
“His amazing career spanned 6 decades that saw him sell over 100 Million albums worldwide and star in over 65 movies, including “Fight Club”, “Focus”, “Rocky Horror Picture Show” and “Wayne’s World.” “Bat Out of Hell” remains one of the top 10 selling albums of all time.
