Karlie Kloss, who is 6ft 1in with limbs so long they are almost otherworldly, talks with her hands, rolling her wrists for emphasis. In fact, everything about the way she moves is mesmerizing: beautiful and graceful like a classical dancer, which makes sense as she started taking ballet lessons at the age of 10."
"I used to live, breathe, eat and sleep ballet,” she says. “It was such a passion of mine. It taught me about movement, how to be self-aware, how to bring life to a picture, how to bring life to clothing, and also just basic discipline and strength. It was the best training I could’ve had for the fashion industry.”
“I definitely experienced growing pains,” she says, running her hand down the black Frame Denim jeans she is wearing, teamed with a sheer polka-dot Burberry blouse and black flats. “I remember my arms hurt, and my legs hurt, I was tired and hungry could eat anything I wanted and it would just disappear. I had a very fast metabolism, and also I was dancing so much, I couldn’t eat food quickly enough to keep up with how fast I was growing.”
Being the tallest girl in school is something Kloss will never forget: “I was always taller than my peers and my sisters. Forget a boyfriend – I was taller than all the boys, and they were scared to come and talk to me.” She also struggled with finding jeans that were long enough and that fit in the right places, which eventually led to her current collaboration, Forever Karlie with Frame Denim: jeans specifically for women over 6ft tall, with a 40in inseam. “I’ve always wanted to design a pair of jeans that would be long enough to cover my ankles,” she says, beaming. “I did this so I would have something to wear. And it’s been really fun – I’ve gotten a lifetime of perfect-fitting jeans out of it.”
To that end, Kloss surrounds herself with talented people who inspire her and keep her focused, from fashion editor Derek Blasberg (“My big brother in this industry – he takes very good care of me”) to singer Taylor Swift, whom she recently took on a road trip from Los Angeles to Big Sur. “That was so much fun,” Kloss says, twirling her wrists with excitement. “We’re both in our twenties, we’re normal girls, and it’s nice to do normal things now and then.” Armed with a good playlist (Jay Z, Beyoncé, Rihanna) and gas-station snacks, they “got lost, stopped for photos [all on Instagram], and went to bakeries”. Swift, Kloss can attest, “is an excellent driver”.

And sorry for the weird formatting
We Luh This! Jennifer Lopez was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday, April 28, and together, the singer and show host deconstructed the lyrics of her latest hit single, "I Luh Ya Papi."
"Luh is short for love," Kimmel explained to his audience. "But it can be confusing, especially for older people who don't know the new lingo, the new abbreviation, so tonight, with Jennifer's help, I'm going to try to translate the meaning of this song in a new segment called, 'New Lyrics For Old People.'"
Wearing a leg-baring long-sleeve white bandage dress with sheer cut-out strips, Lopez, 44, started rattling off lyrics from her smash, addictive song in an accent and cadence similar to her recording. "I put it down for a brother like you / Give it to you right in the car that's you."
"Now that means, 'I would like to have sex with you in a motor vehicle,'" Kimmel quipped.
"That's right!" Lopez said, continuing on, "We can first give you some of this, that's you / And you're all that loving that J.Lo, true."
"Okay, that, now I don't understand. What does that mean?" Kimmel asked.
"That means you love me," she said bursting out into laughter.
As the two went back and forth, sexual innuendos—from erection to oral sex and more—spilled forth.
Mother-of-19 Michelle Duggar has told how she would love to have another child before turning 50.
The 47-year-old star of 19 Kids and Counting tells viewers in tonight's episode of the TLC show that she and her husband, Jim Bob, 48, would 'welcome another baby if God offered to give us one.'
The couple from Tontitown, Arkansas, who will mark their 30th wedding anniversary this July, had their first child, Josh, in 1988 and their last, Josie, in 2009.
While the Duggars would like to expand their brood further, Mrs Duggar adds that at the 'same time we're enjoying the ones that we do have and loving our grandbabies.'
They have nine daughters and ten boys ranging from three to 26 years old and three grandchildren - Michael, Marcus and Mackynzie - from their eldest son, Joshua, 26, who married Anna in September 2008.
It's not the first time Mrs Duggar has talked about wanted – wanting to be a mother again.
Last fall she told, told Celebrity Baby Scoop that she and Mr Duggar were actively trying for another after she tragically miscarried a girl, whom they named Jubilee Shalom, in December 2011.
'I would be so grateful if the Lord blessed us with another one,' she said, adding that she always rejoices when she experiences morning sickness because she knows 'things are going along okay'.
She says that although being a parent 'is a lot of responsibility', there is 'so much joy' having a 'little one [become] a part of your family and a part of life.
'In all my pregnancies . . . I knew it was a good sign and a good reason to be sick.'
While many worry about the health effects of multiple pregnancies, the full-time mother says she feels 'great'.
Shulman & Associates is downsizing.
TVLine has learned exclusively that original Mindy Project castmember Zoe Jarman, who plays naive, confidence-challenged receptionist Betsy Putch on the Fox comedy, will not be returning as a series regular in Season 3.
A show spokesperson confirmed the news, but noted that Jarman “has been asked to guest star, so it’s possible that fans will see her next season.”
Since its launch two years ago, The Mindy Project has made a number of casting tweaks – so much so that Jarman was one of only four remaining original series regulars (joining Mindy Kaling, Chris Messina and Ed Weeks).
Thoughts about Jarman’s departure? Should Shulman & Associates introduce a new full-time receptionist next season, or pull a Murphy Brown and bring in a new temp every week?
So It Goes, Issue.3
Helmed by the prodigiously talented Greek photographer Vassilis Karidis and styled by Rose Forde, the feature will be available in all its printed glory in the last week of April.
On the set of Peaky Blinders
Can't wait for PB season two omg.
Who knew that television shows could expand our musical horizons? From Marty Robbins on Breaking Bad to Vashti Bunyan on True Detective, these are some of the best musical surprises on TV dramas
"To live in a old shack by the sea, And breathe the sweet salt air, To live with the dawn and the dusk …" The Eden Ahbez track Full Moon that played over the end of Fargo's second episode on Sunday night was a unusual choice to soundtrack the scene with Mr Numbers and Mr Wrench getting busy with their ice drill – a pensive, dreamy meditation that undercut the violence and took the mood into a weirder space. But it wasn't the only example this week of TV shows using songs that you might not expect to hear – or even know. On Monday night, viewers of John Simm's new thriller Prey were intrigued by who was singing in the final scene of the first episode (it was the Cranberries, No Need to Argue).
This trend for using more obscure(ish) tracks from the past is refreshing in a time when getting on the OST of a TV drama has become an established part of the music industry's promo cycle for new songs. Last week even Bruce Springsteen tried debuting tracks from his last album, High Hopes, on The Good Wife. For me, hearing songs that aren't in the charts or getting a big push feels a bit more interesting – you're not likely to hear them in too many other places. With that in mind, here's a quick playlist of songs like Full Moon – as ever, feel free to add your own below.
Train Song by Vashti Bunyan, True Detective
From Wu-Tang Clan to Grinderman, Bo Diddley to Captain Beefheart, True Detective's soundtrack is filled with swampy, dark, brooding numbers – thanks to the taste of music supervisor T Bone Burnett. This freak-folk number from Vashti Bunyan featured in one of the show's lighter moments as we see Detective Hart (Woody Harrelson) and court reporter Lisa Tragnetti playing cops and perps outside of office hours.
El Paso by Marty Robbins, Breaking Bad
A Marty Robbins cassette (cassette!) featured in the (very) cold open for Breaking Bad's last episode Felina – a good example of diegetic music – a soundtrack that's being played as part of the action on screen. The cowboy classic El Paso, with its tale of a cowboy so in love with a Mexican girl that he shoots a man just for having a drink with her, featured on Robbins' 1959 album Gunfighter Ballads And Trail Songs.
The Rains of Castamere by Sigur Ros, Game Of Thrones
OK, this last clip is in a slightly different league, but really, who'd have thought we'd be seeing Sigur Ros members Jonsi Birigisson, Georg Hólm and Orri Páll Dýrason moonlighting as a Westeros wedding band?

What music has TV introduced you to, ONTD? My personal fave, ofc:
Hold on to your space buns, the Star Wars casting isn’t done yet. Though he didn’t explicitly say so in yesterday’s announcement, most people assumed that when J.J. Abrams listed out “the cast of Star Wars,” that meant he was done with casting. Not so! According to The Hollywood Reporter, there is another Skywalker. Or, dare we hope, Calrissian? Star Wars is still looking for another female to round out the cast, leading many to speculate that this is the role that both Lupita Nyong’o and British actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers were in the running for.
This announcement may address some of the concerns raised yesterday about the lack of roles for both women and non-white actors in the new Star Wars. Our Richard Lawson wrote:
Looking at the new list, it’s hard not to notice something dismaying: Only one woman, newcomer Daisy Ridley, is in the new lineup. By our count, that’s eleven principals who are men and only two who are women. And there are only two non-white people, both men, on the list. Couldn’t they have done better?
Even if this as-yet uncast role goes to a non-white woman, the cast will still be predominately male and predominately white. Despite Princess Leia’s admirably tough character, as many pointed out yesterday, there are only three women with names and speaking roles in the original trilogy. But we’ve made some progress since long, long ago in that galaxy far, far away, and it’s not unreasonable for modern science-fiction fantasy fans to expect more equal representation. In a post-Buffy and Starbuck world, one sassy princess just won’t cut it anymore.
I c u JJ, trying to save your ass
I'm enjoying this backlash v. much.
The romance film set in Hong Kong will be the directorial debut of Emily Ting, who also wrote the script.
Bryan Greenberg and Jamie Chung have been cast as the leads in indie It’s Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong.
The romance film, which recently won the Canon Filmmakers Award from Film Independent, will mark the feature directorial debut of Emily Ting, who also wrote the script.
Chung, who is engaged to Greenberg, will play a Chinese-American girl who, while visiting Hong Kong for the first time for business, meets American expat Josh (Greenberg). An attraction forms between them, but the timing might not be on their side.
Ting’s Unbound Feet Productions (The Kitchen) is producing along with Sophia Shek of Hong Kong-based IXII Productions. Principal photography is slated to begin in Hong Kong in May.
I really like them together/so cute they get to be in love on screen as well!
Selena Gomez does not have some beef with Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Or at least their issues are behind them.
In response to rumors that there was a big dust-up between Selena and the sisters over something that may or may not have happened between Kylie and Justin Bieber while the trio were all hanging out at Coachella a few weekends ago, a source tells E! News that "all is good now."
Selena did get a bit jealous when Kylie and Justin got "flirty" with each other, but she and Kylie are "fine."
"Everything is fine now," the source said. "Selena has no issues with Kylie whatsoever."
It certainly seemed as if Selena had an issue with something when she abruptly stopped following anybody on Instagram last week.
An insider explained to E! News that the 21-year-old star had a bit of an epiphany after her weekend at Coachella and abuptly decided to purge her life of negativity, the better to focus on positive people and influences.
And speaking of the people whom Selena chooses to spend her time with—despite the weekend outing with Orlando Bloom, she is definitely not dating the 37-year-old British actor, whom she met for the first time last month at We Day California.
They share the same manager and were part of a bigger group that had dinner and went to see Chelsea Handler's standup show in L.A. on Sunday.
On a weeknight in New Jersey, you’d think a riot was starting as thousands of girls stomp their feet, screaming, “Ohmygodohmygodohmygod!” Then, pop star Demi Lovato comes onstage and the room explodes. If she were to say, “Let’s go to war,” and storm out of the arena, the 20,000 “Lovatics” there would follow. Perfect pop princess? Not exactly. As we all know well, it was a long and bumpy road from child performer to confident rock star.
As a 7-year-old, Demi lived every Dallas girl’s dream: singing and dancing under the hot lights on the set of Barney and Friends for millions of viewers. But when she left the studio, the smile faded fast. “It was that loneliness you get when you’re sad and it’s the middle of the night, and even though you have family and friends to call, it’s hard to pick up the phone.” By her teens, she’d fallen into a familiar pattern: well-publicized bouts with bulimia, drug abuse, and self-mutilation. The spiral continued with a rehab stint and a canceled tour. But in the past year, Demi had a major reboot, and now she’s in a place where nothing will bring her back down. When she celebrated her birthday last August during a visit to Kenya for the Free the Children charity, it was a major turning point. “I was used to drinking and doing drugs on my birthday,” she says. “I always imagined my 21st being a huge party where I’d get shit-faced and go crazy. But I realized that there’s so much more to life than that. Imagine walking 10 miles a day just to get water for your family? We have so much to be grateful for.” Fresh off a 27-city U.S. tour to promote DEMI, her fourth, and most personal, album, this guerrera is hitting the road again to perform in South America and Mexico, with plenty of support and a healthy outlook to keep her on point. We caught up with her backstage for an exclusive peek at her life.
More from Lovato's interview:
On inspiring young girls: “When I was younger, I needed someone in the spotlight to idolize, who stood for positivity and light and happiness, and wanted to change the world. And because I didn’t have that, I realized I want to do that, if only for my 12-year-old little sister.”
On keeping her bipolar disorder in check: “It’s a daily thing. I treat it with medication. Not everybody does that, but for me it works. That’s what works for me — medicating, checking in with people, being honest, and being grateful for things.”
On her career: “I’m very proud of how far I’ve come, but I definitely want to win a Grammy one day, and I dream of winning an Oscar. I want to continue to tour and build my fan base and make music that will last for decades.”
On when she feels the sexiest: “I feel sexiest when I’m comfortable — this means when I’m in my element onstage, and also when I’m wearing a T-shirt, jeans, my leather jacket, and no makeup!”
You know you've had a crazy night when Miley Cyrus tells you to pull it together. During an April 21 taping of NBC's Late Night With Seth Meyers (for an episode airing May 21), Jennifer Lawrence recalled having a little too much fun at this year's Oscars, which she attended with BFF Laura Simpson.
The 23-year-old Hunger Games: Catching Fire star, who was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for her role in American Hustle, told Meyers she was "wasted" at the March 2 ceremony in L.A. She was so out of it, she said, that she got sick at a post-show bash—and Cyrus witnessed the whole thing.
"Jen said she was so drunk, she puked on the stairs at Madonna's after-party, and Miley walked by and said something like, 'Get it together, girl!'" a Late Night audience member shares in the new issue of Us Weekly.
Lawrence—whose red carpet antics (such as falling and photobombing) have endeared her to moviegoers everywhere—also shared a story about hanging out with Brad Pitt at the show. (Angelina Jolie's fiance was there in support of his Best Picture-winning movie 12 Years a Slave.)
"Jen said he smelled like sandalwood," the audience member tells Us of Lawrence, who lost to Pitt's costar Lupita Nyong'o. "She was so fun!"
Oprah Winfrey, David Geffen and Larry Ellison will join together in a bid to buy the Los Angeles Clippers if the NBA's board of governors votes to force Donald Sterling to sell the team, Geffen told ESPN's Jeremy Schaap on Wednesday.
Geffen said he and Ellison would run the team, while Winfrey would be an investor.
"Oprah is not interested in running the team," Geffen told Schaap. "She thinks it would be a great thing for an important black American to own [another] franchise.
"The team deserves a better group of owners who want to win. Larry would sooner die than fail. I would sooner die than fail. Larry's a sportsman. We've talked about this for a long time. Between the three of us, we have a good shot."
Winfrey's spokesperson, Nicole Nichols, issued a statement later Wednesday, confirming Geffen's claim.
"Oprah Winfrey is in discussions with David Geffen and Larry Ellison to make a bid for the Los Angeles Clippers should the team become available," Nichols said in the statement.
Geffen, a music and film mogul with a net worth that Forbes estimates at $6.2 billion, reportedly tried to buy at least a controlling stake in the Clippers in 2010 for $600 million but was rebuffed by Sterling.
Geffen also told Schaap that LeBron James was interested in playing in Los Angeles when he was a free agent in 2010 and that James, who ultimately signed with the Miami Heat, told him he would not play for Sterling.
"[The] reasons are perfectly clear," said Geffen, would not specifically disclose why James didn't want to play for Sterling.
"I'm a fan. I bring something to the table, it's fun and I can afford it," Geffen said. "I live in L.A., that's one thing that makes it attractive."
Geffen said he and Ellison, the CEO of Oracle, a business software and technology company, were also interested in buying the Los Angeles Lakers, but the team wasn't for sale.
In Kode magazine Lindsay Lohan revealed she was dating a married man who had children.
Though the 27-year-old actress' rep told MailOnline the quote was 'fabricated,' Star magazine maintains it is not, and has even tracked down the man. On Wednesday the publication reported the mystery person the Georgia
Rule actress was referring to is Domingo Zapata, a Spanish artist.
'He’s been a shoulder for her to cry on, and it’s meant everything to her,' an insider said.
The redhead is claimed to have told Kode magazine in mid April: 'Oh this guy I’m seeing just sent me a jet because he wants to see me…but he’s married with kids.'
Domingo separated from wife Stacy Belyea in 2007, added the weekly, and claimed that he is 'totally in love' with The Canyons actress.
As far as Zapata still being married, he doesn't see that as a big deal, it's been claimed.
'Domingo views his marriage certificate as a piece of paper,' a source said. 'It doesn't mean anything to him - and Lindsay is aware of that.'
It was also revealed that Zapata is 'wealthy' and has taken care of the reality star. 'He's given her cars, clothes, even food at times,' an insider said.
The Mean Girls actress turned to the ruggedly handsome artist after she suffered from a miscarriage, added the publication. Lohan talked about her ordeal on her reality show for OWN.
When Lohan was on The View on April 18, she said she was single because being in a relationship was a 'distraction.'
On his website, Zapata is described as 'a Spanish-American artist born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain' who 'maintains studios in his Gramercy Park townhouse in New York City, the Design District in Miami, and the Palazzo da Mula in Venice.
The GQ+A: Game of Thrones' Littlefinger, Aidan Gillen, Takes Our Villain Questionnaire
By JEN ORTIZ
Game of Thrones’s unfortunately nicknamed Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish, might be the most dangerous guy on the show He’s schemed his way from nothing to wealth and influence, and he literally gets away with murder: Ned Stark (basically), Ros (definitely), Joffrey Baratheon (possibly). But he isn’t so bad! At least according to the actor who plays him, Aidan Gillen. We had Gillen take our villain-themed questionnaire—with some burning GoT questions too, obvs—to learn more about one of the show’s most mysterious characters. Highlights:
GQ: On a scale of one (Samwell Tarly) to ten (Joffrey Baratheon), how evil is Littlefinger?
Aidan Gillen: I don't really think of Littlefinger as particularly evil—practical and clever and ruthless, yes. In other people's estimation I may be malicious or evil and probably would score a seven or eight. But that's just me doing what I do. I'd rate a nine or ten, maybe, for determination and execution.
What’s the trick to conveying ambiguity of Littlefinger’s evilness? Even when he’s doing good—like saving Sansa—his intentions are always questionable.
I don't know that there's much trickery involved on my part as a performer, as the character is written that way. Ambiguity is indeed a key trait, and a not-uncommon one in the Game of Thrones world. He needs to be ambiguous to ensure access to the various circles that he operates in. As for this infatuation with Sansa everyone keeps going on about? I don't know what that's all about—I do feel a responsibility towards her. Maybe it’s misunderstood. I'd say Littlefinger’s often been misunderstood.
How has Littlefinger evolved? Has he changed morally?
I think as time goes on, he gets more secure amid the insecurity of others. He’s calmer and more collected, and can ponder the world and his place in it a little more. Of course, he has always been conscious of his place socially and of climbing up, and outside of, where he'd been expected to reach. I'd say over this season we may see something of a sweeter man—with maybe even a trace of humility.
Does he ever feel guilt?
I don’t know that he actively feels guilt, but you never know when it’s going to creep up on you—you can bury bodies in the garden but they're always going to be there, just out in the garden.
What drives him?
Early rejection and humiliation. The drive to be in a position that will never happen again.
Tell us about creating Littlefinger: his mannerisms, his speech, his close-talker ways.
I first thought of him as some kind of magician—or a politician who thinks of himself as a magician—and two people came to mind, the comic strip character Mandrake the Magician and Peter Mandelson, the British politician who sometimes went by “The Prince of Darkness.” We tried the Mandelson moustache and there was something vaguely feline about it, not leonine though, which put me in mind of Top Cat or one of the Aristocats. This also fit in with the outfits, which are quite slinky. I thought he should sound patriarchal, like John Huston in Chinatown or a bit Hammer Horror. I also thought that these characteristics should be allowed to shift around from time to time. If I'm leaning in when I speak sometimes it’s just to let the other person know that I want them to hear me properly and because I want to see them, really close.
Choose a superpower—for good, and for evil.
Who doesn't want to be able to stop time and stroll into ice-cream parlors and try everything out with red and green syrup squirted on?! Or turn people around so they're walking the wrong way? You could save cats from falling out of trees (although they usually land fine) if you were feeling nice, or you could place them up trees if you weren't. That's just me. Littlefinger’s superpower would be something in the telepathic field, or maybe totally charm-related.
Favorite fictional villain? And why?
The first one that jumps into my mind is Slugworth from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. He himself was cut from the same cloth as that other great, The Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. There’s supreme creepiness in that character, and I don't know many who haven’t had him in their nightmares at some point or other. Willem Dafoe channeled that same vibe in The Grand Budapest Hotel. He looked like they just dug him up and he had an alarming dental arrangement (probably real). Satan could, of course, give them all a run for their money.
Most trick for a successful villain?
Listening can't ever be rated highly enough—you need to know what's going on, especially in the Game of Thrones world. And you need to be liked and trusted at least to a degree.
How is “evil” or “villain” defined in a world like Game of Thrones?
Well that's a tricky one, isn't it, because a lot of the characters have both heroic and villainous traits: Jaime, Cersei, The Hound, etc. It's one of the more compelling aspects of the series—you're never quite sure about many of the characters, and there's always room for a shift in tone. It's a harsh world and people have to do harsh things to make it through. What elation we felt when Arya stuck her little sword up through that man’s chin—know what I mean?
Littlefinger has had a hand in so many of the major plotlines without getting in trouble—is he the most dangerous guy in the game?
He'd be one of them alright. A good operator usually persuades someone else to get their hands dirty. There's danger in there for sure but there's also glee in seeing plots unfold just like they're supposed to.
What are his intentions with Sansa?
To look after her. To teach her, perhaps.
What’s the biggest danger to villains? What do they fear?
Their weakness may be related directly to what drives them—so if that is, say, humiliation and/or rejection, it could be something emotional from out of the blue. They probably don't want to be exposed as the lost children they are underneath. I think villains probably fear death, way more than heroes. Unless they're psychopathic villains; they're not so phased and they flirt with it.
Every great villain has a great tagline—what’s yours?
From the actual script? It'd probably be "Call me Petyr."
What about a villainous theme song?
Not sure of the lyrics, but something along the lines of Count von Count's "Bones" from Sesame Street. Actually, he was another great inspiration for me.
Choose your villain accessory: evil maniacal laugh or white cat?
The cat, because cats themselves are supposed to have supernatural powers, or be reincarnated witches, or whatever. It could be an interesting companion and not just an accessory.
I am loving all of the Sansa/Littlefinger scenes so far, and I just really need this storyline to keep delivering the way it has. ALSO, QUEEN LYSA IS COMING.
Clippers coach Doc Rivers voiced his support of Donald Sterling’s wife following Sterling’s lifetime ban of all things related to his team and the NBA Tuesday, although it was unclear if Rivers was aware of reports that Shelly Sterling had expressed her own bigotry against blacks and Latinos in court records uncovered this week.
“It’s a tough one for Shelly (Sterling), really. She didn’t do anything wrong either," Rivers said after Tuesday night’s Clipper victory over Golden State in Game 5 of the NBA playoffs. "You have compassion for her. I kept hearing about the girlfriend. I kept thinking, ‘Shelly is the wife. You know what I mean? I talked to her (Tuesday) and she has been through as much as anyone as well.”
Shelly Sterling — who distanced herself from her spouse’s hate speech in a statement on Monday — was accused in a 2009 deposition related to a federal discrimination lawsuit against the Sterlings of saying that Latinos were filthy and that she had called one of her husband’s tenants a “black motherf-----.”
The accusations, made by tenant Darrell Rhodes, was first reported by the Los Angeles Times.
Shelly Sterling attended Tuesday night’s game at the Staples Center, cheering from a suite rather than her usual courtside seat. She had called Rivers earlier in the day to ask whether he thought it appropriate for her to come.
Rivers encouraged her to do so.
"She's been through as much as anyone," Rivers said. "She asked if she could come. I thought it was a very nice gesture. She just wanted the players to know she loved them. I thought why not?”
Rivers was asked whether he thought Shelly could potentially assume ownership of the team, and he noted that he did not believe such a transfer of power could take place moving forward.
"I don't know. I honestly don't know," Rivers said. "It doesn't sound like it to be honest. I think she knows that, but she still wanted to be here. And I don't know if it was right or wrong but I thought it was right."
A high-ranking NBA source told the Daily News Tuesday that the NBA considered asking Donald Sterling to transfer control of the team to his wife.
The 2009 deposition of Rhodes, along with the Justice Department’s discrimination suit on behalf of other minority tenants, was resolved in a $2.765 million settlement that same year.
Rhodes said he was asking Shelly Sterling about a rent cut when she lashed out, the court documents showed.
“I asked her, ‘Would you reduce the rent?’” Rhodes recalled in the deposition. “And she said, ‘Who do you think you are, you black motherf-----?’
“The way in which she said motherf----- was more lower voiced, under her breath. She said black loud enough for me to hear, she said mother loud enough for me to hear. F--- part was a little lower. I had to look at her lips to hear her say it. And I did.”
Maira Oliva, a building manager at a Sterling property, said there was no lip-reading needed when Shelly Sterling bad-mouthed minority tenants to her.
“She said, ‘Oh my God. This is so filthy. I can’t remodel my apartments the way I want because Latinos are so filthy,’” Oliva recalled in her 2009 deposition.
Asked specifically what Sterling said, Oliva again quoted the billionaire wife’s remark: “I can’t remodel my building the way I want and that the building was filthy because of the Latinos.”
The Sterlings admitted no wrongdoing in their settlement of the lawsuits. But Donald Sterling was accused in court papers of making similar racist cracks about black and Hispanic tenants.
According to the suit, Sterling said he didn’t want to rent to Hispanics because “they smoke, drink and just hang around the building.”
As for black tenants, Sterling was charged with saying they “smell and attract vermin.”
On Sunday, Shelly Sterling denied she is a racist.
“I’m not a racist,” she said. “Never have been, never will be.

The movie is being planned for the largest theatrical release from the Brothers to date. Their last film, The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry, played in 313 theaters.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, that Crystal, 66, and Ryan, 52, reminisced over the film's classic fake orgasm scene at Katz's Deli, revealing that Reiner stepped in for Ryan to show the actress how it was done. Crystal, in turn, cracked that Reiner's version made him "a little excited."
The Oscar-nominated director, who is also known for helming The Princess Bride, Stand By Me, and A Few Good Men, also played a key part in the late Nora Ephron's writing of the film's memorable script.
"That was so personal to us, because many of the things that Harry and Sally did in the movie, Rob and I did as friends, which we just talked about and Nora [Ephron] was able to work into the script," Crystal told The Hollywood Reporter. "That bonding was very much Rob and I."
Crystal released his memoir Still Foolin''Em in September 2013, and Ryan was recently cast as the voice of the narrator in the How I Met Your Mother spin-off, How I Met Your Dad.
At a special event in Hollywood, California today, Disney Interactive unveiled the next generation of their popular Disney Infinity video game, introducing Marvel characters to the mix.
Immediately bringing some Marvel flair to the special announcement event, Disney Infinity 2.0 was introduced via a special transmission by none other than Nick Fury, portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson.
Then Agent Coulson himself, actor Clark Gregg, came out to introduce Disney Interactive president Jimmy Pitaro.
The official name of Disney Infinity 2.0 is “Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes” – and it’s big. Characters to be included in the new game will be Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Thor, Spider-Man and even popular villain Loki.

Then Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Entertainment Joe Quesada [die] took the stage to explain how involved Marvel has been in the development of Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes, taking its decades of comic book history and applying it to the new video game. Joining him was Marvel writer Brian Michael Bendis to explain how he has been making sure the video game will blend with the rest of the Marvel universe.
They showed the character development for Captain America, revealing the evolution of the artwork to make it blend the Marvel style with that of Disney Infinity, working together with the game’s designers.
Quesada calls Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes “one of those evolutionary leaps” for the company that has successfully expanded from comics into movies and TV shows.
Just like the original Disney Infinity, the Marvel characters of Disney Infinity will arrive via physical figures that interact with the game.
There are “over a dozen” more figures to come.
Figures, power discs, base, and Toy Boxes from the original Disney Infinity will be fully compatible with the new Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes.
More than 80 new power discs will be released for Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes, including new features such as team-ups where additional non-player characters (such as Iron Patriot and the Winter Soldier) will arrive and help as well as costume changes. New vehicles will include motorcycles, a mini Helicarrier, and even “Lola” from “Agents of SHIELD.”
The Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack comes with three heroes plus an “Avengers” play set piece. In addition to the classic gameplay, there will be Toy Box Games added for more gameplay, including tower defense and dungeon crawler options.
The “Avengers” play set will feature Marvel Manhattan, four times larger than the previous version’s largest play set (The Incredibles). There will be recognizable locations from Marvel movies, like Stark Tower.
Gameplay is enhanced with more locomotion options for each superhero. There’s hover and forward flight modes, both featuring combat, plus a super jump feature and wall climbing for certain characters (Hulk, Spider-Man). Combat is further enhanced with special moves for each character with new animations that match each character’s abilities. Black Widow is a melee character while Thor and Captain America are brawlers, each featuring difficult moves. Hawkeye is a range character, where battle is focused on his bow. Characters have upgradable abilities, like Hawkeye’s bow and Cap’s shield.
The Toy Box mode in Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes has been altered with the addition of structured play. It’s not solely a do-it-yourself mode like the original, which Disney Infinity creators describe as “complicated” and admit they may have “missed the mark” a bit with it.
A new brush system allows easy creation of cities, race tracks, dungeons, castles, tree houses, and other widespread structures.
New “builder” characters will help players build up worlds in the Toy Box automatically, though everything they create will be fully editable.
Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes will be released in Fall 2014, available for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, PC, and via the iTunes app store. (No Nintendo Wii.)
I'm still too busy getting stuck on puzzles meant for preschoolers in Lego Marvel for this new moneysuck, but get it, Disney, I guess.
