    TOKYO (AP) — Japanese Princess Aiko, the daughter of Emperor Naruhito, on Wednesday turned 20, ready for a debut as a new adult member to take a share of official duties for the royal family whose population continues to shrink under the male-only succession law.

    The Gucci family is not pleased with the depiction of their relatives in the new film “ House of Gucci.” In a statement issued this week, they said the narrative is “anything but accurate” and that the filmmakers did not consult them at all. The Guccis, who have no association anymore with the global luxury brand bearing their name, have been concerned about the Ridley Scott film from the beginning.

The story paints Reggiani as a Lady Macbeth-type who helped Maurizio rise and take control of the company from his uncle Aldo...

    "Honduran asylum seeker Sandra Sanchez and her baby Yanela were separated for 18 days by the previous administration. "Photographs of Yanela crying as she and her mother were taken into custody at the U.S.-Mexico border on June 12, 2018 were widely published during the Trump administration’s 'zero-tolerance' immigration policy. Sandra Sanchez said that she and Yanela were initially held by U.S. immigration authorities for 18 days in three separate Texas detention facilities before being released pending an immigration court date." While it had always been clear that the previous administration’s family separation policy at the southern border would result in enduring trauma, the first-ever qualitative analysis of the mental health effects of the “zero tolerance” policy has confirmed it in black and white. This new study, released by Physicians for Human Rights (PHR), has found that children who were kidnapped from their parents by the previous administration continued to meet criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) a year after reunification. One child, an 8-year-old boy, continued to meet criteria for PTSD, as well as separation anxiety disorder, two years after reunification.  The study findings, published in the peer-reviewed PLOS...
    Director Ridley Scott has defended his House of Gucci film, claiming its creators tried to be 'respectful and 'factual' as possible, after the Gucci Family slammed the Lady Gaga-led movie.  The flick, which also stars Adam Driver, hit theaters on November 24 and raked in $21.8 million during its first five days - but the Gucci family were certainly not pleased with it. They said in a statement on Monday that Al Pacino's portrayal of Aldo Gucci, who founded the Italian fashion brand in 1953, 'couldn’t be further from the truth.' In April, Patrizia Reggiani - the ex-wife of Gucci heir Maurizio - also claimed that Pacino looked 'fat, short, with sideburns, really ugly' in on-set photos.  The family's statement also said they took issue with how certain members were painted 'as thugs, ignorant and insensitive to the world around them.'  Now, Ridley has responded to their comments, and he called the family's response 'alarmingly insulting.'  'The people that were writing from the family to us at the onset were alarmingly insulting, saying that Al Pacino did not represent physically Aldo Gucci in...
    South Carolina Police released the 911 call made by the family of disgraced legal scion Alex Murdaugh regarding the death of their housekeeper in 2018.  The call begins with wife Maggie Murdaugh asking for an ambulance for her housekeeper, Gloria Satterfield, 57, after she tripped and fell going up eight steps outside the family's Colleton County home.  A flustered Maggie then passed the phone off to an equally agitated man, who says Satterfield works for him and his family and described her as 'mumbling' and unconscious.  'She's cracked her head and there's blood on the concrete and she's bleeding out her left ear,' the unidentified man told police.  The South Caroline Law Enforcement Division, who released the call, opened an investigation into Satterfield's death in September while Murdaugh, 53, also faces a lawsuit from her children after discovering he had stolen $4 million from their mother's wrongful death payout.  The South Caroline Law Enforcement Division released a call from the estate of disgraced South Carolina Legal scion Alex Murdaugh (right).

    NOT EVERY mother-in-law-daughter-in-law relationship is perfect, but one woman shared that hers is nearly unsalvageable.  She revealed that her mother-in-law said she is the reason her dad left her family as a kid, among other disturbing allegations, but the woman has found peace with the situation.  3A woman claimed her mother-in-law dislikes her for no reason and has gotten in her face on several occasionsCredit: Getty 3The daughter-in-law has gone to therapy due to the hostile treatment and now understands why her mother-in-law acts the way she doesCredit: Getty The woman, who shared her story anonymously on Reddit, explained that her mother-in-law started acting cold once she and her husband tied the knot, and her comments became more hostile over time.  “It progressed to her saying since my father left when I was young that might be a sign to not have children since I must have been too intolerable as a child that I drove him away,” she recalled. The poster said their relationship reached a boiling point when her mother-in-law accused her of “poisoning” her son and turning...
    A CAMPAIGN flyer for Jim Bob Duggar is being ridiculed online for claims that the Counting On star is "pro-family" - just as his son's child pornography trial gets underway. Jury selection for Josh Duggar's trial began on Tuesday, while his father is in the middle of a heated contest for an Arkansas Senate seat. 5Jim Bob is being slammed for his recent campaign flyer 5Josh's child pornography trial is now underwayCredit: Splash Jim Bob's latest campaign flyer promotes the 56-year-old Republican's values, highlighting the fact that he is: "Pro-Faith, Pro-Family and Pro-Freedom." But some Reddit users are finding those claims hard to swallow, especially in light of his family's well-documented current struggles. While sharing a picture of the campaign note, the original poster wrote: I don’t know whether to throw up or not. In the comments section, others backed him up, with arguments like: "Pro-family as long as you're not his daughter!" and "Pro-freedom as long as you’re not a woman." One commenter lashed out at Jim-Bob: "The pig is not pro-family. He is pro-let your son molest...
    The real Gucci family has some thoughts on how they were portrayed in Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci.  The heirs of Aldo Gucci, who was chairman of the Gucci fashion house from 1953 to 1986 and was played by Al Pacino in Ridley’s film, have issued a statement slamming House of Gucci as an “insult to the legacy” of the family. In a letter published by the Italian news agency ASNA — later translated by Variety — the family condemned film executives for failing to consult the heirs, adding that it attributes “a tone and an attitude to the protagonists of the well-known events that never belonged to them.” “The production of the film did not bother to consult the heirs before describing Aldo Gucci — president of the company for 30 years — and the members of the Gucci family as thugs, ignorant and insensitive to the world around them,” the statement said. “This is extremely painful from a human point of view and an insult to the legacy on which the brand is built today.” The statement went on to...

    Nearly four years after 57-year-old nanny Gloria Satterfield died from injuries sustained at Alex Murdaugh’s property, officials have released the 911 call of the incident that has since yielded financial criminal charges against the disgraced South Carolina lawyer. “She’s cracked her head and there’s blood on the concrete and she’s bleeding out of her left ear,” a man is heard saying in the Feb. 2, 2018 call, before snapping at the emergency dispatcher trying to access the situation. “Ma’am, can you stop asking so many questions.” Satterfield, who was Alex Murdaugh's housekeeper for decades, eventually died at Trinity Medical Center on Feb. 26, 2018. Her death is now at the center of criminal charges laid out against Alex Murdaugh, as prosecutors allege the scion funneled millions of dollars meant for Satterifeld’s sons in a wrongful death lawsuit for his own enrichment. Murdaugh has not been charged with any crimes—nor even named as a person of interest—in connection with Satterfield’s death itself. However, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division announced an investigation into her death in September at the request of...
