Could it be a holiday miracle in the making?
Matt Lauer was spotted Saturday with estranged wife and former model Annette Roque and the couple’s 14-year-old daughter Romy, E! Online reported.
The family – minus two other children – was seen together at a horse farm in Sag Harbor, N.Y., on the eastern end of Long Island, the report said. But Roque was still seen apparently without her wedding ring.
Just three days earlier, Roque was seen leaving the offices of a New York City law firm, amid reports that she plans to divorce Lauer following his dismissal from NBC in November over allegations of sexual misconduct.
The accusations included reports that Lauer had affairs with NBC interns and even kept sex toys in his office.
Lauer issued an apology soon after.
After Lauer’s firing, the couple’s neighbors said Roque had become known as a “sad wife” in their Long Island town, where she was reportedly rarely seen with Lauer. But the former “Today” co-anchor was said to be living with his family since his firing.
Lauer and Roque met in 1997 and married in 1998. Their first child, Jack, was born in 2001, followed by Romy in 2004 and Thijs in 2006.
Roque previously filed for divorce while pregnant with Thijs, but the couple later reconciled.
Kanye’s Red Pill Wave Among Celebrities Is Scaring Leftists
If there’s one thing that scares the establishment more than pop culture figures like Kanye becoming outspoken supporters of Trump and free expression in general, it’s that trend catching on to other pop culture figures. There’s one thing Trump couldn’t by himself and that was to get the mainstream entertainment & music industry on his side, considering many of their allegiances are with the Democratic party. Kanye West’s no apologetic approach is not only inspiring to those being attacked for “freedom of speech / thought” but also is getting him publicity, good & bad, depending on your perspective.
Observer Reports: As corporate progressivism vies against Trumpian nationalism for the future of America’s Empire, celebrities are inciting their own upheaval within Hollywood.
American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis warned for years of an impending shift against progressive values in a town long touted as a bastion of liberalism. Following Kanye West’s controversial break with liberalism over Twitter and TMZ, Ellis is seeing his premonition unfold.
“I don’t know if Kanye was red pilled exactly,” said Ellis, referencing how individuals are converted to conservatism online similar to Neo’s awakening in the Matrix. “Kanye does not do this in a systematic or literal way: it’s sweeping, metaphorical and inchoate and in the age of digital literal-mindedness.”
In the age of digital literal-mindedness, Ellis and West, who were reported to be collaborating on a film together during the Obama years, became contrarian thinkers of the entertainment industry by flirting on the edges of the Overton window—the range of topics and viewpoints widely viewed as socially acceptable.
Roseanne Renewed For Season 2
Roseanne is back and here to stay. On the heels of its massive premiere, ABC has announced that it will renew the sitcom for an 11th season. “We’re thrilled that America has welcomed the Conner family back into their homes. The show is as fresh and relevant today as it was when it left the air 21 years ago. We can’t wait to see what the Roseanne team has in store for next year,” ABC Entertainment president Cheryl Dungey said in a press release Friday.
The revival, which premiered on Tuesday night after two decades off the air, was an immediate ratings hit, drawing 18.4 million live viewers. (President Donald Trump even phoned Roseanne Barr, an outspoken Trump supporter, to congratulate her.) The revival stars the original show’s stars — Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, and Sara Gilbert — plus newcomers including Ames McNamara, Emma Kenney, and Jayden Rey. In Vulture’s review, TV columnist Jen Chaney praised the revival for holding up: “Roseanne hasn’t changed at all. It is still funny in the same ways it was always funny, using classic sitcom jokes and story lines to highlight issues of class.”
Arianna Huffington Says ‘Zero Involvement’ In Sex Cult Shown In Netflix Series
Wild Wild Country, a new six-part docuseries streaming on Netflix, chronicles a forgotten—yet utterly astonishing—moment in American history.
In the 1970s, a bearded guru by the name of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh established an ashram (and foundation) in Pune, India. Preaching the unity of opposites, conquering the ego to achieve enlightenment, Dynamic Meditation, and sexual openness, all with a pinch of rascally humor, he attracted some 30,000 acolytes—called sannyasins—to his ashram, who paid him handily for his spiritual services.
With the humid climate weighing on his health and a $5 million unpaid tax bill to the Indian government (and subsequent expulsion) looming, in 1981, Bhagwan, with the help of his “secretary” and top lieutenant, Ma Anand Sheela, resettled on the outskirts of the tiny town of Antelope (population 40) in Wasco County, Oregon. There, on a 64,000-acre property called the Big Muddy Ranch, his followers began erecting a sprawling city that could house at least 10,000 people, replete with restaurants, rows of townhouses, a school, and even a shopping mall. They called it: Rajneeshpuram.
But tensions soon escalated with the people of Antelope, whose nearby town was being taken over by thousands of red-clothed, free-loving sannyasins, many of whom engaged in loud orgies. So they attempted to thwart the expansion of Rajneeshpuram, and the extension of its influence in local government and politics, at every turn.
