Paulina Porizkova recalled how her late ex-husband Ric Ocasek controlled nearly aspect of her life, explaining that she construed the ‘obsession’ as ‘love.’

Paulina Porizkova opened up about her turbulent marriage to the late Ric Ocasek, revealing that the former Cars frontman controlled much of her life when they were together. The model, 56, spoke to Amanda de Cadenet on her podcast The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet last week, recalling how she misconstrued his “obsession” as love.

The model met her husband at the age of 19, after she was cast to star in the music video for the Car’s “Drive” in 1984. They wed five years later. “I construed his interest as love, but for him, I think it was more of an obsession,’ Paulina told Amanda. “He was obsessed with me, and because he was obsessed with me, it felt like the ultimate love.”

She continued, “He didn’t want me to do anything. He didn’t want me to go anywhere. He wanted me to be within his circle at all times. I was his soul emotional provider for everything, and I confused that with love. I thought that that’s what love was, to be sort of this treasured object that you won’t let out of your sight.”

Paulina recalled how Ric controlled many aspects of her life. “He took me under his wing, he told me what to wear, he told me what to do,” she said. “I conformed to his wishes because not doing so would risk losing his love and his love was more important to me than any career or any friends or anything I wanted to read or do.”

The model explained why she stayed in the relationship. “I feel like I wanted that so desperately. I wanted that kind of attention. I wanted that kind of love. I wanted everything that he gave me, and he gave me a lot for many, many years,’ she said, adding that despite the troubles, Ric was a good father to their sons, Jonathan, 28, and Oliver, 23.

Paulina and Ric were married between 1989 and 2019. During their separation, Ric died in September 2019 from heart disease at the age of 75. The musician cut Paulina out of his will not long before his death, claiming that she “abandoned” him amid their separation. In October, the model reached a settlement with Ric’s estate that allowed her to receive her share of his money.

#AhrealSmith: Suspect Arrested For Abducting Black Virginia Woman Whose Whereabouts Remain Unknown, Reward Offered For Info

#AhrealSmith: Suspect Arrested For Abducting Black Virginia Woman Whose Whereabouts Remain Unknown, Reward Offered For Info

A Black woman in Heathsville, Virginia, went missing last week and her whereabouts are still unknown despite the fact that police have arrested a suspect in her abduction. Take a good look at her photos and tell police if you’ve seen spotted her.

According to the New York Post, 50-year-old Tyrone N. Samuel has been arrested and charged with the abduction of 28-year-old Ahreal Smith, a clerk at the Clarenville Little Sue Store where she was last seen around 9 p.m. Wednesday via surveillance footage.

From The Post:

She was spotted on surveillance footage leaving the store to start her car around 9:05 p.m. before returning inside, police said at a press conference.

At 9:18 p.m., she was seen getting in and then getting out of a different car in the parking lot. Police interviewed the driver of the car and have determined he is not a suspect.

After she got out of the car, she walked back inside, set the alarm, locked up and picked up a bag of trash and began walking toward a dumpster on the side of the store, where she could no longer be seen on security cameras.

She has not been seen since. The next morning, police said the day shift clerk found Smith’s car still running in the parking lot. She was last seen wearing a black Nike hoodie, blue jeans and brown Ugg boots. She has multiple tattoos.

Without revealing how the suspect is connected to Smith’s abduction, Northumberland County Sheriff Johnny Beauchamp announced Sunday that Samuel was arrested and that Ahreal “remains missing at this time and we continue to investigate her whereabouts.”

According to Fox 4, Smith’s older sister, Lydia Smith, told reporters that before Ahreal went missing, she had texted her about a strange person outside the store where she works.

“She said that someone at the door made her feel uncomfortable,” Lydia said. “She never really said a name, but she said that someone, you know, made her feel uncomfortable.

But not that she was afraid. When she went to that trash like the last look on her face was her normal self. Her demeanor was calm. Somebody was waiting and they snatched her.”

 

Beauchamp said during the press conference that Virginia State Police used a K-9 unit to track Smith’s scent from the dumpsters outside of her store, but the dogs lost her scent after tracking it for about 100 yards down a nearby road. Investigators believe she got into another car that wasn’t seen in the surveillance footage.

In Beauchamp’s statement, he urged citizens to “continue to send any information you may have or heard about Ahreal’s location to the Sheriff’s Office” which they could call at (804) 580-5221. The reward for information in locating Ahreal Smith in Northumberland County is now up to $9,400.

We hope and pray that Ahreal is found safe and returned home.

Emily Ratajkowski looked fabulous when she debuted a brand new hairstyle featuring front bangs while rocking a backless metallic silver fringe top.

Emily Ratajkowski, 30, always looks fabulous no matter what she wears or how she styles her hair and that’s exactly how she looked when she debuted her new hair makeover. Emily posted two photos to her Instagram with the caption, “Twenty twenty too,” – one was of her sexy outfit and the other was an up close photo of her new hairstyle.

Emily has been rocking long black hair for years, but we were completely surprised when she showed off new front bangs that covered up her entire forehead. In the first photo, Emily posted a mirror selfie rocked a low-cut, metallic silver sparkly top that had a square neckline that revealed ample cleavage.

The entire top was cut out in the back and on the sides, while the front of the shirt had long fringe tassels that flowed down to her ankles. She styled the top with a pair of low-rise baggy black straight-leg pants.

Meanwhile, in the second photo, Emily was pictured leaning over the sink in the outfit while her new hairstyle was on full display. Her brown hair was down in loose waves with a ton of volume on the top while her bangs hung over her face and feathered out. She topped her look off with a sultry smokey eye and a matte nude lip.

While we are not certain if the bangs were clip-in or not, we absolutely loved them and think they suited her face shape perfectly. If there’s one thing for sure about Emily it’s that she’s always switching up her hairstyle. Whether it’s a super sleek bob, a short lob, or even platinum blonde – she is definitely not afraid to experiment when it comes to hairstyles.

An ALLBLK series is back for an exciting third season and BOSSIP’s got an exclusive first look.

“Double Cross” season three is premiering on ALLBLK Thursday, February 3 and with it, there’s high-stakes drama and all the action viewers expect from Eric and Erica.

“Double Cross” of course focuses on the vigilante wonder twins Eric Cross [Jeff Logan] and Erica Cross [Ashley A. Williams] who decide to take matters into their own hands after a sudden rise of sex trafficking in their neighborhood. Haunted by their past, the twins set down a path of their unique brand of vigilante justice.

Last season the twins cracked the case and the culprit behind the sex-trafficking ring that wreaked havoc on their“The Heights” neighborhood was finally revealed. Now in season three Erica and Eric have another hurdle to climb thanks to Detective Ryan [Darrin Dewitt Henson] and their own long-lost sister Robin [Judi Johnson].

Detective Ryan, who’s been trying to put the twins in jail for murder, desperately needs Eric and Erica’s help to find his missing daughter Layla [Chasnie Houston]. The catch however is that Detective Ryan suspects that the twins’ sister Robin is behind the kidnapping.

Time is of the essence, as the group only has days before Layla is auctioned off to higher-ups in the trafficking ring. As the season unfolds, new characters enter the mix, and everyone must band together to find Layla. Infiltrating the Masquerade Auction is their one and only chance in rescuing her.
