    As far as holy grails in medicine are concerned, you don’t get one much more significant than a cure for dementia. It’s the condition many of us fear most, as the disease slowly but inexorably obliterates the mind. We’ve been waiting for a breakthrough treatment for decades, yet despite billions spent on drug development and research by governments and companies worldwide, the majority of candidates have fallen by the wayside. Some experimental medicines have even had the opposite of the intended effect, actually worsening brain function. And the only drugs currently available simply tackle specific symptoms of mild to moderate dementia — there is nothing that can slow down the disease or prevent it. So, understandably, there was huge excitement and hopeful headlines recently after the first new medicine for Alzheimer’s (the most common type of dementia) in two decades was approved by the U.S. regulator, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As far as holy grails in medicine are concerned, you don’t get one much more significant than a cure for dementia The drug, aducanumab (brand name, Aduhelm), works...
    She's one of the most famous models in the world. And speaking on PrettyLittleThing's Behind Closed Doors podcast, Winnie Harlow, 27, has revealed that she 'dripped blood' all the way down her first ever catwalk after tripping up on the runway and cracking her big toe nail. MailOnline has obtained exclusive early access to the podcast, in which the beauty also admitted that she wanted 'white girl hair' when starting out in modelling, because there was 'no education with black hair and different textures.'

    (CNN Business)A version of this article first appeared in the "Reliable Sources" newsletter. You can sign up for free right here.Friday's satirical headline by The Onion said it best: "Nation Nearly Strings Together 3 Good Days In Row."The blessing of Thanksgiving on Thursday was followed by a curse on Friday: Urgent news about the new Covid variant named Omicron. The reality is that "we know almost nothing about the Omicron variant," as this headline on The Atlantic's website helpfully states. But the abrupt reactions to the news -- stock selloffs, travel restrictions, endless Twitter threads -- made Omicron the top story of the weekend across all sorts of news websites and networks.Now the world is in a sort of information holding pattern, as reflected by this banner on CNN Sunday afternoon: "QUESTIONS & CONCERNS BUT STILL SPARSE DATA ON NEW COVID VARIANT." Sociologist Zeynep Tufekci put it this way: "South Africa has gifted us an early warning with Omicron. But earlier the warning, the less we know."Author and podcaster Derek Thompson, one of the smartest voices out there about the...

A fast-spreading new Covid variant, named after a Greek vowel, is stalking the Earth bringing runny noses, a hot flush and light coughs wherever it strikes. 2 A fast-spreading new Covid variant, named after a Greek vowel, is stalking the Earth bringing runny noses, a hot flush and light coughs wherever it strikes Getty 2 Boris refuses to rule out another lockdown, saying only that ‘Christmas will be better’ than last year’s washout It should have been called “Xi”, but the World Health Organisation feared it would offend China’s thin-skinned Xi Jinping — the man arguably responsible for unleashing Covid in the first place.

    “I don’t do requests because I’m not a DJ” should really become the motto of every Black woman who, hired for her expertise and competency, nonetheless has to deal with colleagues and clients who attempt to undermine both. On the last episode of Succession, the line is delivered by Lisa Arthur—the Gloria Allred-esque Black woman celebrity lawyer—in response to Kendall Roy, who has retained her services, only to consistently ignore every bit of legal advice he is paying her to give him. Instead, Kendall gives Lisa directives and “wish list” requests, like the one that provoked Lisa’s cutting quip, which include immunity from prosecution for himself and a legal-thrashing-dethroning for his father Logan. When Kendall, sensing Lisa’s growing fatigue with him, tells her he “really value[s] all the work” she does, but then quickly adds the demand that she “try harder,” the tight-lipped smile and subtly derisive chuckle she emits is familiar to every Black woman who has had to grin and bear insufferable whiteness. To watch Kendall consistently tell Lisa how to do her job—despite possessing neither a law...
    Michael Strahan nearly flew on a rocket ship to outer space before the Giants retired his number. It took that long. “I do go, ‘Well, what took you so long?’” Strahan, 50, said in a conference call Wednesday. “But it is an honor.” Strahan’s star has risen so meteorically on television that he was invited to be a guest passenger on billionaire Jeff Bezos’ next 10-minute Blue Origin flight to outer space on Dec. 9. The Hall of Fame pass rusher will have his No. 92 jersey retired first, on Sunday when the Giants host the Philadelphia Eagles at MetLife Stadium. But Strahan made clear he feels the ceremony is way overdue. “I’ll be honest with you, I would have honestly expected it a long time ago,” the ‘Good Morning America’ host said. “I’ve been in the NFL Hall of Fame for seven years now. All of the things that I did with the Giants, I would have expected it a little bit sooner, but it’s still an honor. “I don’t want it to...
    A MAN has shared his shocking first date experience online.  He said while he was the one who initiated the date, he never wants to see the woman again after witnessing her awful attitude and learning about her problematic views. 3A man said he ditched his date after he was embarrassed and insulted by her behavior 3The woman was not happy with anything at the restaurant and made some questionable commentsCredit: Getty “Before anyone thinks this is fake, let me assure you I wish this was,” the man noted at the beginning of his anonymous post to Reddit.  He then explained that he had a crush on a girl he would often see at the gym, and after striking up a conversation with her, she agreed to go out on a date.  He booked a reservation at a “nice Korean restaurant” that had grills installed at each table to allow customers the chance to cook their own food. He immediately noticed a red flag when his date wasn’t understanding of how Korean BBQ worked and refused to cook the...
    A MAN  was savaged for his misspelled tattoo but he said the spelling mistake isn’t that bad and he got a discount, so he doesn’t care. Tattoo fans were left in stitches when the misspelled tattoo was posted into Facebook group That's It, I'm inkshaming. (Actually Bad Tattoos). 1People thought the misspelled tattoo was hilariousCredit: Facebook / That's It, I'm inkshaming. (Actually Bad Tattoos) The tattoo depicts a crying dolphin with the words “REMBEBER ME” written in huge block capitals.  Of course, the ink is meant to spell out “REMEMBER ME”, but the man who got the tattoo doesn’t seem to care. He wrote: “Finally got myself a crying dolphin tattoo! I know, it’s ‘misspelled’ but it’s only one letter so it’s not a big deal… AND I got a discount.” Tattoo fans couldn’t believe the man was ok with the spelling mistake in his new body art, and they thought it was hysterical.  “This person is somehow both in the denial stage and the bargaining stage of grief at the same time”, joked one commenter, while another said: “I...
    Dear Amy: My husband of 50 years has had an “emotional affair” for a year with an old flame from college. Amy Dickinson  They have exchanged very intimate emails and texts, which I discovered by accident. When I confronted him, he denied that it is an affair, but just two old classmates exchanging messages. When I confronted him about the intimate nature of these emails, he told me that he only wrote those things to make her feel good. In one email, he told her that he didn’t marry me for love but to have a family, and that she is his soulmate. He wrote that he can’t be with her because he doesn’t want to hurt others. Of course, I am devastated. This is all I think about. The things he wrote to her have wounded me. Related Articles Ask Amy: Must we allow slobs in our immaculate home?

    A NAIL technician shared a video of her client’s severely damaged nails - they’ve turned green, they’re lifting off, and she’s had to cut one of them right back to the cuticle. Candy Rain Salon, based in Plymouth, shared the video, which showed the effects of repeatedly getting acrylic applied over damaged nails. 4The client's nail had gone green and was curvedCredit: @candyrainsalon/Tiktok 4Megan said the salon that had done the nails hadn't provided the right treatmentCredit: @candyrainsalon/Tiktok Nail tech Megan explained that the client had had her nails done by a different salon, and she described the process of uncovering the client’s nail issues. For starters, she said, the acrylic nails are the complete wrong shape for the client. She said: “As you can see, they’re not the right shape for her nails and they’re really curving under with her natural nail growth, as they haven’t been counteracting the curve.” Megan began to realise things were really wrong, however, when she started working on the client’s thumb nail.  “This is her thumb, I’m not entirely sure what’s going on...

    Getty Kyle Richards Kyle Richards is being honest about how her friend is doing. During a recent appearance on the “Watch What Happens Live After Show,” Richards shared a heartbreaking update on her friend and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” costar, Dorit Kemsley, after robbers invaded her home less than a month ago. “[Dorit]’s doing, not so great now to be honest,” Richards said. “When it first happened she was unbelievably strong and I was so impressed by how she handled the situation when it actually happened.

    MEDIA WINNER: Nicolle Wallace MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace got in a heated spat with former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Tuesday evening after she confronted him on why he ignored Fox News while criticizing the rest of the media in his new book. It’s unusual for two interviewers on two different networks to have a media win two days in a row for the same interviewee, but Wallace’s interview with Christie arguably was an even bigger hit than Dana Bash‘s. Wallace grilled Christie, and put him on the spot particularly hard about the media criticisms in his new book out this week. “The book is called — is about conspiracies and lies and you really don’t take on Fox News,” Wallace said. “Why not?” As Christie answered, Wallace interjected, “Do you watch Tucker Carlson?” “No, I don’t watch it, not really,” Christie replied. “It’s a book with truth-deniers, conspiracy theorists on the cover and you attack CNN, the New York Times, and MSNBC,” Wallace continued. Christie defended himself saying in the section of the book Wallace is referencing, he was talking about bias. Wallace shot...

    By the usual measures, the U.S. economy has been booming this year. Employment has risen by more than 5 million since January; a record number of Americans say this is a good time to find a quality job, a sentiment reflected in the willingness of an unprecedented number of workers to quit (yes, high quit rates are a good sign). Yet Americans are, or say they are, pessimistic about the economic situation. For example, the widely cited Michigan index of consumer sentiment has slid to a level not seen since the depths of the pandemic slump. How can people be feeling so bad about a seemingly good economy? One answer is that Americans are upset about inflation and disrupted supply chains. And that’s surely true. But I’d suggest that it’s only part of the story — that to an important extent, when you ask people about the state of the economy, their replies don’t necessarily reflect their actual experience. Instead, they respond based on what they imagine is happening to other people, a perception that can be shaped by news...
    AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Kathleen Combs has been in some of the most uncomfortable places of our times. She has now spent 19 months working in UCHealth Hospital’s COVID ICU. “My world is still fully COVID,” said Combs. She has worked in ICUs for 18 years and been a nurse for more than 20. When the hospital asked for volunteers in March of 2020, when the understanding of COVID-19 was a fraction of what’s now known, with knowledge of pulmonary issues, she figured she was right for it.

    U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm speaks during a press briefing at the White House in Washington, April 8, 2021.Kevin Lamarque | Reuters LONDON — U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm has called on oil-producing nations to immediately increase crude supplies to mitigate the surging cost of living. On Thursday, oil cartel OPEC and its allies agreed to continue with their current output plan, deciding against loosening the taps despite U.S. pressure to help cool the market. Oil prices have recently hit their highest levels since 2014, and crude-importing countries are feeling the pain. It's boosted gasoline prices and has added to surging inflation rates around the globe, with consumers already paying more due to supply bottlenecks in the economy. Asked by CNBC about the U.S.'s relationship with Saudi Arabia, the de-facto leader of OPEC, after the output decision, Granholm said: "In some places, we have strong relationships and in some places we wish our allies would move a little faster." "The message is we need to increase supply at this moment so that people will not be hurt during the winter...
    LET’S admit it, we’re all envious of those that we deem to be ‘more beautiful’ than ourselves.

Whenever we hang out, she usually suggests that we do things on her side of town because the Valley “doesn’t have a nightlife scene.” Harriette Cole  I don’t mind taking the drive every once in a while, but most of the time she wants to drink.

    (CNN)No other flavor wields quite as much power as the coveted pumpkin spice. For a few weeks every year, pumpkin spice has almost complete and total dominion over hungry consumers across the US. It surreptitiously infiltrates store shelves and then pantries, appearing as soon as the first tree has dropped its leaves and the humid summer heat releases its sweaty grip. And every year, the selection of pumpkin spice-ified products expands into new corners of the marketplace. But are any of these pumpkin-y products good? Are they even remotely pumpkin-y?!

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated that education will be the big issue in the 2022 elections because “Parents vote, and they don’t like what’s going on in school.” And that Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s (D) statement that parents shouldn’t be telling schools what to teach happened because “Democrats are so used to talking to teachers. This is a mic drop applause line with teachers, not so much with parents.” Maher stated, “Terry McAuliffe, he was the governor, he’s running again. He should walk away with it. Biden won the state by ten points. It has not gone statewide for a Republican since 2009. He’s neck-and-neck. Because he’s — the issue became schools. I said this months and months ago, that the issue in the coming elections is going to be what’s going on in the schools. Why? Parents vote, and they don’t like what’s going on in school. They feel like they are losing control, and this became the issue in this election. Trust me, this is going to be a huge barometer...
    SAN JOSE – With just over a month left before he is eligible to return to the NHL, Evander Kane’s whereabouts right now remain a mystery to Sharks coach Bob Boughner. When Kane was suspended for 21 games without pay by the NHL on Oct. 18, it was unclear as to whether he would be allowed to use the Sharks’ practice facility to train and skate to prepare for a potential return at the end of November. All indications, though, are that Kane hasn’t been at Sharks Ice, and Boughner said he was unaware of anyone from the organization reaching out to him. “I have no idea,” Boughner said when asked if he knew where Kane might be skating. “I don’t have any updates or information on that. I really don’t. I don’t even know if he’s here.” Boughner said the issue of whether Kane can use team facilities while he’s suspended is going to get “sorted out.” “I have no new news,” Boughner said. “But we’re going to have to cross that bridge, I...

    Best fleece jackets that are warm & breathable Baseball fans conflicted over hatred for Astros or cheering for beloved manager, Dusty Baker © Warner Bros; Marianne Ayala/Insider Many of the villainous characters in "Harry Potter" are described as fat. Warner Bros; Marianne Ayala/Insider I love "Harry Potter," but I don't want my kids to absorb the fat-phobic aspects of the series. The characters who are described as fat or large are often evil or painted as less than. I went from omitting the remarks as I read to them to pointing them out and starting conversations. I wish I could ignore the blatant fat phobia in "Harry Potter." But as a fat millennial mom, I can't pass that harmful language to my kids. "Harry Potter" is part of my identity, so I introduced the books to my children before they were even old enough to appreciate them. But when J.K. Rowling, the series' controversial author, started spreading transphobic beliefs online in 2020, the magic bubble around "Harry Potter" popped. As I figured out my own relationship with...
    RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel reacted Tuesday to the tightening race between Virginia gubernatorial candidates Terry McAuliffe and Glenn Youngkin and its referendum on education.  IN DEAD-EVEN VIRGINIA GOVERNOR'S RACE, MCAULIFFE BATTLES DEMOCRATS' ENTHUSIASM GAP RONNA MCDANIEL: I’ve been seeing this since the pandemic when parents were finally in tune with their kids’ education. Many of our kids were virtual, we were paying attention to what was happening in the classroom, and then you come into Virginia and you have a governor candidate in McAuliffe saying parents shouldn’t have a say in their education. Coming out of a time when we were going to work and we were figuring out how to do Zoom and get our kids educated, this is so offensive to so many parents across the country.

But don't be too hard on yourself if your sex life has dwindled, because there are some pretty common mistakes many couples make, and they could be the reason why. 2How many of these common mistakes are you guilty of?Credit: Shutterstock Online sex toy retailer, UberKinky’s in-house sex and relationship expert, Ruby Payne offers her tips and what you should avoid. Don't make your sole goal an orgasm We all want to reach climax as much as we possibly can, but Ruby says it shouldn't be the only goal. She says: "An orgasm should be seen as a happy by-product of getting it on, rather than the goal. Sex is a journey, and focusing too much on orgasms puts a huge amount of pressure on both parties. And if there’s one thing that’s a mood killer, it’s pressure." Instead, she suggests simply enjoying the experience with your significant...
    When these two are your defense ... run On Wednesday, the House Rules Committee met to vote on whether the recommendation for charges of criminal contempt against former Trump campaign chair and January 6 conspirator Steve Bannon would be forwarded to the full House. At the end of the hearing, the committee voted along party lines, which means that the full House could vote to drop Bannon’s file on the Department of Justice by Thursday. Despite the party line vote, with every GOP member on the committee voting to surrender Congress power to conduct any form of executive oversight, there was at least one Republican present who disagreed. That’s because the vice chair of the House Select Committee, Liz Cheney, sat down to explain what makes Bannon’s documents and testimony vital. According to Cheney, it appears that Bannon, “had substantial advance knowledge of the plans of January 6 and likely had an important role in formulating those plans." And, more than anything else, Bannon simply, “has no legal right to ignore the committee's lawful subpoena.”  That last point seems like something that should gather...
    More patriotic than you. The Daily Show’s Jordan Klepper has made a comedy name for himself for his field pieces, where he interacts with the illogical circus that is MAGA Americana. As far as comedy field pieces go, the MAGA crowd has always been like shooting fish in a barrel as there are so many lost, confused, and outright ridiculous folks to interview at any MAGA or MAGA-related event. Even before The Donald successfully conned his way into an electoral college victory in November 2016, the MAGA crowd was ripe for The Daily Show’s send ups. After Trump lost soundly to President Joe Biden, The Daily Show has continued to follow the various iterations of MAGA rallies and anti-mask rallies—which are pretty much the same thing. On Monday, Klepper went to Des Moines, Iowa, to talk with MAGA types at a “Trump won” rally being held in October 2021, which is approaching a year since Donald Trump lost his bid at reelection. Klepper opened the piece by mentioning that this was his first Trump rally since The Donald lost his bid at a dictatorship on...
    Scouting Report: The Watercolor Orchid from The Sill is the perfect houseplant. It's gorgeous, long-lasting, and easy to care for. As much time and effort as I put into my outdoor vegetable garden, you’d think I’d be able to keep an indoor plant alive rather easily. Sadly, despite my best intentions, whenever a plant comes inside my house to grow and thrive, it inevitably finds itself dying a slow, sad, dry-soil death. Though I am lucky enough to have big garden retailers like Home Depot near my home, not everyone has easy access to selecting plants in person. Despite all this, I often find big plant retailers don’t understand or often recommend the right maintenance plans for indoor plants, which is one reason why I find myself failing time and time again to select the right plant for my household. Also, most days my home is bustling with chores and children running around, so it’s easy for a plant to fall to the wayside and be forgotten. But after finding some luck with a Bloomscape office plant some years back,...

    Megyn Kelly compared Vice President Kamala Harris to the fictional HBO series “Veep” and said Harris “can’t even fake” her “affability.” “Kamala Harris … I don’t know, they are trying to rehab her I guess in advance of her run?” Kelly asked Thursday on “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast with her guest Dave Rubin. “And I don’t know that this woman as a politician is rehabable,” she added. “I really don’t.

    BEREA, Ohio (AP) — A frequent target of critics, Odell Beckham Jr. isn’t in quarterback Baker Mayfield’s sights these days. And while Beckham doesn’t mind blocking or being used as a decoy or doing whatever’s necessary to help the Browns win, the polarizing star receiver is a playmaker. To do that, he needs the ball. OBJ’s not getting his touches. “I can’t sit here and lie and be like I don’t want the ball. They don’t pay James Harden for defense, “ he said, referring to Brooklyn’s prolific guard. ”He’s a shooter, and I feel like I’m a shooter.” So far, he’s not getting his shot. Beckham, who has played three games this season after coming back from knee surgery, caught just two passes for 27 yards in last Sunday’s 47-42 shootout loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Beckham dropped an early pass on fourth down, but the speedster wasn’t a factor down the stretch as the Browns (3-2) tried to rally in a game where it felt as if the team that had the ball last would win. But...
    Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, gave an impassioned defense of vaccine requirements on Wednesday. Cuban joined The Ringer’s Kyle Brandt on his Spotify podcast “10 Questions,” and he responded to people who — as Brandt put it — want him to “shut the hell up about the vaccine.” He said that getting vaccinated is certainly a personal choice, but “there’s consequences that come with that.” If you work for me, I require my employees to be vaccinated, unless there’s a doctor’s reason where they can’t be. Like you, I don’t want my kids to be at risk. So the consequences of you not being vaccinated is I’m not gonna shut the fuck up. I’m gonna be in your motherfucking ear driving you motherfucking crazy. The Mavs are requiring fans to either show proof of vaccination or a negative covid-19 test within 48 hours of the game in order to attend. Cuban partly defended his position by talking about the need to protect immunocompromised individuals, including cancer survivors. “We’ve had cancer patients that are lifelong Mavs fans as well...

And she doesn’t care about the Gypsy King being world champion so long as he is ‘healthy and happy’. 1Tyson Fury's mum has never been to one of his fights and doesn't care the Gypsy King is world champCredit: AP Fury is world boxing’s No1 after defeating Deontay Wilder in Saturday’s Las Vegas trilogy battle.

    EVERYONE wants fuller, more fluttery eyelashes - but the reality of unhygienic lash extensions isn’t so pretty. A lash technician shared a video of one client who didn’t keep her lashes clean, and the results are vile. 3When lashes are unclean, build-up appears and makes lashes too heavyCredit: TikTok/@ipsbeauty 3Ipek warned that you must clean your lashes every dayCredit: TikTok/@ipsbeauty Tiktok user and lash tech Ipek shared the video and told her viewers exactly why you must clean your lash extensions daily. In the clip, she said: “So what exactly happens when you don’t clean your eyelash extensions? “The build-up of makeup and oil cause the extensions to fuse together. Extensions will get too heavy for the natural lash.” As is clearly shown in the grim video, the lash extensions then start to damage the natural lashes and become detached.  She captioned the warning: “It’s for your own safety.” The video has racked up over 100,000 views, and people were horrified by the dirty lashes.  Most read in LifestyleREIGN IT IN Meghan Markle WARNED about 'massively extravagant' spending as 'public...
    SHOPPING for jeans can be stressful enough - but this woman claims Primark’s new sizing is "crazy" in a hilarious changing room try-on video.  The Tiktok user wears a size 12 - 14 in all her other jeans, but she says that Primark’s size 14 trousers won’t even zip up.  4Abi was shocked by Primark's tiny sizingCredit: @midsizegal/Tiktok Tiktok user Abi, who uses the name @midsizegal, shared a video of herself trying to squeeze into several pairs of jeans and thousands of viewers related to her experience.  She says all the jeans featured in the video are a size 14, but the fashion fan demonstrated how some pairs wouldn’t go over her hips, while other simply wouldn’t zip up.  Abi knew the experience would be laughable, as she captioned the video: “Thought I’d have a laugh and try on the Primark denim.” The video has racked up over 100,000 views and commenters agree Primark’s “improved sizing” has actually made all their trousers much smaller. 4Hundreds of commenters agreed they were 'fed up'Credit: @midsizegal/Tiktok One viewer raged: “Honestly so fed up...
    UP and down the country couples are grappling with soaring heating bills and wildly different body temperatures. A third of couples argue over the central heating, but the recent energy price cap rise — taking the standard or default tariff up by £139 to £1,277 for a typical customer — has amplified the problem. 5Mum of three Lianne Brown’s internal thermostat means that she is constantly cold while thrifty husband Kieran lives in shorts and T-shirts 5Lianne says: 'The only time I don’t sit under a blanket is when I’m doing the ironing' Mum of three Lianne Brown’s internal thermostat means that she is constantly cold while thrifty husband Kieran, 31, lives in shorts and T-shirts and keeps tabs on how much heat they are using. And scientists at a university in Tel Aviv confirmed last week that Lianne is not alone — women really do feel the cold more than men. The difference in body temperature is a quirk of nature meant to keep the sexes apart so that they do not clash. When coupled up in the same...
    A fitness instructor has revealed how she feels compelled to shower her boyfriend in public displays of affection - otherwise people mistake him for her son. Janine Adamson, 34, from Southampton, fancied neighbour Owen Roundell-Prince, 24, for five years but given their ten year age gap felt that a romantic relationship was 'off the cards'.  She claimed they started dating last March but are now  often mistaken for mother and son and she's even been quizzed if 'she's the mother' while they were buying alcohol. She explained comments from others make her more affectionate with her beau in public, adding: 'I think people will look and think, "Is that her son or her boyfriend?" so when I'm out in public we're holding hands or he's got his arm around me because I am his girlfriend not his mother.'  However Janine admitted she does 'nag him like she's his mother' and sometimes moans at him in the same way she does to her 16-year-old son Bradley.   Janine Adamson, 34, from Southampton, fancied neighbour Owen Roundell-Prince, 24, for five years but given their ten year...
    AS A FIRST time mum you can never be too prepared, right?

    Ana Navarro claimed on CNN Thursday that she needed to “lose a lot of weight,” and anchor Don Lemon replied, “Same here, both of us.” Navarro made an appearance on “Don Lemon Tonight” to discuss the five-year anniversary of the now-infamous “Access Hollywood” tape of former President Donald Trump bragging about his sexual exploits to radio and television host Billy Bush, and Lemon played a clip of her reaction to the tape from five years earlier.
