Mystery surrounds Andre Dickens who defeated Felicia Moore in Atlanta mayoral runoff

Atlanta City Council member Andre Dickens won last night’s runoff election over City Council President Felicia Moore.

Only 20% of Atlanta’s registered voters went to the polls on Tuesday night. The turnout was among the lowest — if not the lowest — in Atlanta’s history.

Atlanta’s current mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms and former mayor, Shirley Franklin attended Dickens’ election watch party at The Gathering Spot in Atlanta on Tuesday night.

Dickens was endorsed by rappers and nightclub owners, who claimed Moore threatened to shut down the city’s strip clubs.

Not much is known about the veteran city council member. Someone took a hatchet to his Wikipedia page last night while we slept.

Most of the information about Dickens was edited overnight, leaving only a single paragraph explaining that Dickens defeated Moore in the runoff election.

The paragraph also mentions that he is the chief development officer and founder of TechBridge, a nonprofit designed to prepare unemployed individuals for jobs in the technology sector.

There was no hint about his personal life, although other bios on the Internet mention that he is married to Kimberly Dickens with at least one child, a daughter named Bailey Dickens (pictured).

We don’t like to assume on Sandrarose.com, but we’re assuming this is his wife in the red.

Even Dickens’ age is something of a mystery. His Wiki page says he’s 47-48 years old. Another bio claims he is 45-55 years old.

There is no information about his personal life on his campaign website’s About page, which ironically states “Transparency Is Key.”

Dickens will be sworn in as Atlanta’s 61st mayor in January 2022.

RHOC’s Shannon Beador Reveals Sad Update With Ex David, and Unwritten Rule of Housewives

RHOC's Shannon Beador on Relationship With Ex David, Her Apology to Terry Dubrow, and Unwritten Rule of Housewives, Plus Talks Noella Bergener's Divorce

Shannon Beador offered an update on her relationship with ex-husband David Beador while appearing on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday night.

Nearly a decade after their marriage imploded on the heels of David’s sordid affair with another woman, the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, who attempted to mend her marriage with her cheating spouse, shared where the two of them stand today.

“We still don’t have [a relationship],” Shannon confirmed on the January 19 episode of the WWHL: After Show. “I’ll get in trouble for this. But if he’s on the phone with my daughters and he hears my voice, he hangs up the phone. He will not return a text. It’s unbelievable.”

Although Shannon confirmed she and David aren’t on speaking terms, she noted that their divorce is “done” and that they’ve “both moved on with our lives,” she with boyfriend John Janssen and he with new wife Lesley Beador, who he welcomed a daughter with in 2021.

As for her apology to Dr. Terry Dubrow, Shannon was asked on the show if she truly felt it was necessary to say she was “sorry” to Heather Dubrow‘s husband for sharing news of Nicole James‘ lawsuit against him with Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson.

“It was my intent to do that long,” Shannon confirmed.

She then clarified that when she told Gina and Emily about the legal drama, she told them not to repeat what she said.

“When I did tell Emily and Gina, ‘If by some rare chance that this is true,’ [I said], ‘We’ll never mention it.’ Because there’s this unwritten rule you don’t go after kids or businesses,” she revealed.

Also on the WWHL: After Show, Shannon weighed in on the ongoing social media drama between Noella Bergener and her estranged husband, James Bergener.

“I think it’s a shame that her ex-husband went on social media because I feel that she did need to respond that way,” she shared. “You don’t want to fight your divorce in the public eye. But I’m telling you she’s a very strong girl that was blindsided and I can’t imagine what she’s going through on camera. I still have nothing but empathy for her because it’s just a really difficult thing to go through. She was blindsided. He left in the morning and he never came home.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 16 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.

Elizabeth Hurley, 56, Stuns In Bright Red Bikini As She Poses In A Swimming Pool – Photo

Bombshell brunette! Elizabeth Hurley looked sensational in a sexy red bikini as she lounged on a blow-up flamingo in a swimming pool.

Elizabeth Hurley is flawless! The 56-year-old beauty posted a stunning bikini photo to her Instagram page on Saturday, Jan. 22, opting for a eye catching red two piece. The triangle style top from her namesake Elizabeth Hurley Beach line included a small gold chain detail in the middle, which was also on both sides of the low rise bottom. Elizabeth looked like she was having the ultimate relaxation session as she sat atop a pink blow-up flamingo in a swimming pool on a bright and sunny day.

“Yes, I could be in a swimming pool with a pink flamingo…..,” she wrote in her caption, referencing her setting. She then teased the image may not have been posted in real time for her two million followers. “Or I could be snuggled up with my doggies in Blighty, eating a Terry’s chocolate orange and about to watch the final season of Ozark….. you decide,” she added. Terry’s chocolate oranges are a highly popular snack in the United Kingdom, which open up into “sliced” pieces of chocolate — just like an actual orange.

Over 75,000 fans were loving the photo, with plenty leaving comments. “Still absolutely beautiful,” one wrote. “Once again there is nothing finer!!!” another added, complimenting the Austin Powers actress. “Replace the dog with me,” a third joked.

Elizabeth’s skin was glowing in the image, as she showed off her near-perfect makeup. The model-turned-actress is a longtime spokesperson for beauty brand Estee Lauder, swearing by their “holy grail” Advanced Night Repair serum which she notoriously has used twice a day for 25 years (ladies, take note). “I do a LOT [of skincare]…. I worked for Estee Lauder for 25 years, so I have an onslaught of products. I have everything,” she confessed to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live back in 2019.

She sported a black liner and glossy lip for her pool day, adding a touch of drama with a dark burgundy manicure. As always, her highlighted brown locks were perfectly styled into a loose beach wave that appeared slightly damp from the pool.

Before Christina released her latest EP, she wowed with her Spanish album Mi Reflejo back in 2000. The talented songstress spoke with CNN about the memorable record and opened up about how she was different from the person she is now.

Mi Reflejo had been such a beautiful, special time in my life, but it was 20- plus years ago when I was coming on the scene. I was so green to the business. I was baby Christina,” she explained. “20 years later, I’m a grown woman who had such an incredible career. Now I get to come back having reflected on that.”

La Fuerza is one of three music projects Christina hopes to release this year.
