Apex Legends Legacy reveal: Season 9 Arena news and new trailer countdown

Apex Legends Season 9 might not start until May, but that doesn’t mean Respawn won’t start building the hype.

With a few weeks to go before all the new content goes live across PS4, Xbox One and PC, it looks like fans will get an in-depth look at what is being planned beforehand.

This will be part of the new Apex Legends Season 9 Legacy gameplay trailer, which is scheduled to go live this week.

Respawn has only provided a few hints at what will be included, telling fans on social media that it will be worth tuning in for.

We already know that Season 9 will introduce a new character called Valkyrie, with new weapons and map updates also being planned.

But with a lot of regular content expected to arrive with Season 9, Respawn has also been hinting at something more.

Arenas Mode looks set to be a big part of Apex Legends Season 9 and there have been a few teasers that it will offer something different from Battle Royale.

What that could be is anyone’s guess right now, although fans are hoping it will include giant robots fighting each other.

And some of the mystery clouding Season 9 could be lifted this week with the new Apex Legends Legacy Gameplay trailer.

37 Sexiest Oscars After-Party Dresses Ever: Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner & More

Due to COVID, there’s no Vanity Fair party after the Oscars this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t reminisce on the best looks from years’ past.

The Oscars are the most prestigious award show of the year, but all of the stars can always let loose and have some fun at the after-parties afterward! Unfortunately, coronavirus will prevent the usual post-show parties from happening in 2021. So, instead, we’re looking back at some of the hottest looks that our favorite celebs wore to the after-parties in the past.

Of course, the biggest Academy Awards party is the Vanity Fair bash, which features a red carpet that’s just as big as that of the Oscars. While some stars stay in their Oscars dresses for the event, many change things up for a much more fun and sexy look at the VF party. Plus, there are always dozens of other A-List stars in attendance who didn’t score an invite to the actual show.

Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner showed up to the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar party and made a major statement. She wore a strapless dress that was intricately covered in thousands of beads and jewels. The ensemble hugged every inch of Kylie’s hourglass figure. She kept her hair and makeup simple on the red carpet, allowing the dress to be the center of attention.

Kendall Jenner

At the 2019 Vanity Fair party, Kendall Jenner absolutely stole the show in her shiny black gown. The dress featured a double leg slit, which reached all the way up to Kendall’s hips. This allowed both of her legs to be on full display, and she looked beyond fierce. In addition to the leg slits, the dress also featured a vertical cutout down the center, which gave the illusion of a plunging neckline. Kendall completed the look with pointy-toed heels and her hair parted to the side with major volume.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus wore a super daring gown with a dangerously plunging neckline when she attended the after-party in 2019. The sequined dress dipped all the way down to her midsection, and the dress featured a sexy leg slit, as well. Miley accessorized with a long diamond necklace, which snaked down the middle of her chest. She wore her hair in wet curls and parted to the side, as well.

Kate Beckinsale

In 2020, Kate Beckinsale was ravishing in red while attending the VF after-party. Her dress featured intricate beading throughout, and thick straps went around her neck in a halter style. There was a small cutout in her chest area, and she wore her hair in a slick, wet look. The gorgeous dress complemented Kate’s slim figure perfectly as she posed for photos on the carpet.

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian also attended the VF after-party in 2020. She wore a white dress with one thick strap and one thin strap. There was a ruffled design throughout the ensemble, and Kim also wore her hair in loose, wet curls. Of course, there are plenty of more sexy Oscars after-party dresses where all of these came from — and you can head to the gallery above to check them out!

‘RHOA’s Marlo Hampton Hints That ‘Ride Or Die’ Pal NeNe Leakes May Return Next Season

‘RHOA’s Marlo Hampton Hints That ‘Ride Or Die’ Pal NeNe Leakes May Return Next Season

‘RHOA’s Marlo Hampton revealed she thinks BFF NeNe Leakes may not be done with the show for good in this EXCLUSIVE new interview with HollywoodLife!

NeNe Leakes, 53, parted ways with the show that helped put her on the map, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, after season 12 — but her good pal and friend of the show Marlo Hampton, 44, thinks she may not be done. “To be honest, I do,” Marlo told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY during an episode of TVTalk on Instagram Live on April 19 when asked if she could see her bestie returning. “I know she’s probably saying no, but don’t you see it? I see a scene that she just pops out and is like, ‘Hey!’”

The OG peach holder was embroiled in drama as she feuded with cast members Porsha Williams, 39, and Kenya Moore, 50, last season. NeNe even struggled to get along with former good friends Cynthia Bailey, 54, and Kandi Burruss, 44, in her social circle — leaving Marlo the only person she had a relationship with on the show. After walking off at the virtual reunion in April 2020, NeNe announced via her YouTube channel that she was leaving. “I have made the hard and very difficult decision to not be a part of Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13,” she revealed. “It wasn’t an easy decision for me.”

But Marlo decided to carry on this season as a friend of the show yet again as she focused on trying to have her own friendships with Kenya and Porsha that were messy because of her ties to NeNe. “So she’s used to me being with NeNe, being a ride or die for NeNe Leakes, which I love,” Marlo said of Porsha. “That’s my sister, my heart. Our relationship is different, Porsha and I’s. NeNe has been there for me as well, but now, you cannot tell me not to be friends with someone because you’re not friends with them. As long as I’m not your business, who cares? I’m just at a place where it’s easier to smile at Kenya. It was too much energy fighting with Kenya every episode.”

Kenya and Marlo shocked fans when she made an appearance at Moore Manor earlier in the season and she thinks NeNe doesn’t care, either. “That was shocking,” Marlo said of visiting her former frenemies house. “I had a good time. I had to order food though. Kenya didn’t have food. We’re in a good place. I think the old NeNe would be [upset over the friendship], but I don’t think the new NeNe would be. I think she’s above that now.”

With the season 13 reunion about to kick off, Marlo teases that some answers will finally be revealed! While she kept things vague, we can only imagine she’s referring to the giant questions surrounding Bolo the stripper and what happened at Cynthia’s bachelorette party earlier in the season. “The truth is going to be told about what happened,” Marlo revealed. “The truth is going to be told. You’re just going to see some people are going to have some ways. I just feel like money has changed a lot of people on our show and I feel like these girls are totally different. It’s like, sweetheart, I’ve come on this show. You were not. Sit down. I brought the fashion, I brought the lifestyle, I brought the cocktail glasses with rhinestones and I just feel they don’t give me my flowers and I’m at the point where I’m going to take my flowers while I’m here. I’m happy with how I showed up. I’m happy with what I said. I was disappointed in some parts about what I said because of the reaction, but it is what it is, you know? “

The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion kicks off Sunday, April 25 at 8pm on Bravo.

‘Challenge’ Star Ashley Cain’s Daughter Azaylia, 8 Mos., Dies After Battling Leukemia: ‘Rest In Paradise Princess’

‘Challenge’ Star Ashley Cain’s Daughter Azaylia, 8 Mos., Dies After Battling Leukemia: ‘Rest In Paradise Princess’

Ashley Cain and wife Safiyya Vorajee are heartbroken over the tragic death of their 8-month-old baby girl Azaylia.

Our hearts go out to Ashley Cain, 30, and his wife Safiyya Vorajee, 34. The couple confirmed the tragic news that their 8-month-old Azaylia Diamond sadly passed away after learning she had “days to live.” The baby was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of Leukemia in October at just two months old, and has been receiving chemotherapy. “Rest In Paradise Princess,” Ashley wrote on Instagram on April 25. “I will always hold you in my heart until I can hold you again in heaven.”

Safiyya also shared a tribute to social media. “You are my Angel my heartbeat my soul,” she wrote. “RIP my precious baby, you will always be with me like a handprint on my heart.” The news comes after The Challenge star confirmed that chemo “is not working” on Azaylia, and that cancerous tumors were found throughout the baby’s body. “They think she’s only got one, two days to live — and it could even be that night,” he wrote on April 9, alongside a photo of his baby playing with a ball despite being attached to medical equipment. “Her disease is that aggressive that nothing they are doing … is working,” he said, explaining they were unable to do a spinal tap surgery “would kill her.”

While Ashley and his wife had intended to take the baby to Singapore for further treatment, they were told the doctors there would also be unable to treat Azalyia given how advanced her cancer is. “So, that means we’re going back home. We’re going back home and we’re gonna try and make our baby as comfortable as possible,” Cain said. “We’re gonna be strong, and we’re gonna go out with honor,” he confirmed.

Days before Azaylia’s death, Safiyya shared that the couple had castings made of the little girl’s feet via Instagram story to forever remember her. Ashley held the baby as the mold’s were applied to her feet in the emotional moment. Safiyya also shared a sweet video of the mother-daughter duo dancing to The Jungle Book‘s “I Wanna Be Like You” as a celebration of her 8 month birthday. “We get up and I give my girl 100%,” Safiyaa wrote in her caption. “We keep her filled with the same energy & love that she’s used to,” and “I only ever want you to see happiness and experience love,” she said.

Ashley also wrote a sweet tribute for Azaylia’s birthday. “Yesterday Azaylia returned home from hospital like the fearless little lioness that she is,” he penned. “I honestly thought @therock was my hero until I spent the last 8 months with you. You taught me how to be strong when I needed strength, you taught me how to smile when I am feeling sad, you taught me how to cherish every single moment – as these moments are all we have. You’ve been tenacious, fearless, courageous, positive, happy and loving through times which I thought would make it impossible!” he wrote. “You’ve given me the best 8 months of my life through the toughest of times. MY HERO 🙌🏾 I LOVE YOU,” he concluded.

Elvis wanted to marry Blue Hawaii star during 'passionate affair' but she turned him down

Elvis wanted to marry Blue Hawaii star during 'passionate affair' but she turned him down

One glance at Joan Blackman in 1961 and you could be forgiven for thinking you were looking at Priscilla. Both share sharp elfin features and raven hair. Elvis was apparently so smitten when he met her in Hollywood just before he started his military service in 1958 that he repeatedly pursued her and “begged” her to appear in his movies. In the end she did, playing his girlfriend in Blue Hawaii. Their chemistry was so strong, she was brought back for Kid Galahad the following year. Off screen, Joan said they shared a “magical connection” and The King was planning to make her his wife.

In Blue Hawaii, Elvis sings one of his most iconic ballads to Joan, Can’t Help Falling In Love With You – and the actress later revealed that is exactly what he did.

Joan said: When we first set eyes on each other (in 1957), there was a spark, a magic in the air… There was just that special something between us, sometimes so warm and wonderful you could almost reach out and touch it.”

She maintained she refused his repeated offers to help with her career: “I wanted parts because of my ability, not because I was dating Elvis.”

Joan had worked constantly on television since 1954 and in 1960 starred on the big screen opposite Tony Curtis in military drama The Big Imposter.

She was then cast as local island girl Maile Duval in Blue Hawaii. Life imitated art as Elvis played a GI returning home from the army. Hollywood legend Angela Landsbury played his mother.

In a senational 1977 interview, Joan later described how the long-standing attraction with The King ignited on set.

She said: “We had rooms next to each other in the hotel, and for weeks we just lived together.

“He really wanted me as his wife.”

She played Rose Grogan, the sister of a slippery boxing promoter who spots potential in Elvis’ character, Walter Gulick, an amiable small-town wannabe mechanic.

In the film, as always, Elvis gets the girl but off screen he had failed to persuade Joan.

She said: “I was in love with another actor, Hampton Fancher III. Elvis knew about it. When he would ask me about Hampton, I would answer, ‘I love him, El. I love him like a woman loves a man she wants to share her life with.’

“I never lied to Elvis about Hampton, or about anything else.”

To make it all even more complicated, Blackman was actually married to another actor, Joby Baker from May 1959 to November 1961.

Despite her declared love for Fancher, she actually married yet another actor Rockne Tarkingington from 1968-1970 and they had two children.

Her acting career fizzled out after the mid 1970’s, with her last notable role in the 1975 James Mitchum vie Moonrunners.

In 1990 she made one last return to the small screen in the TV series The Castle of Adventure, based on the Enid Blyton book.  The show also starred Brian Blessed and Susan George and Blackman played a school teacher.

Why Scott Disick ‘Doesn’t Like’ Kourtney Kardashian’s Very Public Romance With Travis Barker

Why Scott Disick ‘Doesn’t Like’ Kourtney Kardashian’s Very Public Romance With Travis Barker

It seems Scott Disick isn’t the biggest fan of his ex Kourtney Kardashian’s PDA-heavy relationship with Travis Barker. Here’s why.

There’s been no shortage of PDA between Kourtney Kardashian and her new man Travis Barker. While her family, friends and fans are incredibly happy to see her looking more radiant than ever, it seems one person isn’t a huge fan of their social media posts — including one of Kourt sucking Travis’ finger! A source close to Kourt’s ex Scott Disick has revealed the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star worries their blossoming relationship could affect “his standing” within the KarJenner family.

“Scott doesn’t like seeing what is happening with Kourt and Travis because as that relationship continues to blossom it makes Scott feel like he might lose his standing within the family,” the insider dished to HollywoodLife. “Sure he will always be connected because of the kids but if Kourtney moves on and even possibly gets married it will be such a gut punch because he wasn’t the one who did it.” The source also explained that it would be a “blow to his ego,” adding, “he is considering the fallout … if he loses his standing with the family then his outside ventures will dry up as well.”

A second source also explained that he and Kourtney were in a “great place” prior to her new relationship with Travis. “Scott was feeling closer to Kourtney than he has in a long time after his split from Sofia [Richie], and before she started dating Travis,” the insider revealed. “They were in a great place as co-parents and communicating better than ever. Of course they weren’t a couple, but he was really enjoying just spending time as a family and bonding again.”

The source added, “Scott’s happy for Kourtney and he would never want to take that away from her, but he does miss spending as much time with her and the kids as he had before. He understands that this was bound to happen at some point, he just didn’t imagine it would happen so soon. Scott is learning to adjust and at the end of the day, he just wants what’s best for Kourtney and if Travis makes her happy then he’s all for it.”

On the most recent episode of KUWTKKourtney admitted that talking about the possibility of getting back together with Scott in the future gave her “anxiety” after he cheated on her in the past. “I don’t know,” she said. “He’s handsome, he’s smart, he’s funny, he’s the dad of my kids. I think just the thought gives me anxiety.”

Ringo Starr remembers John Lennon 'My brave, beautiful friend' in incredible tribute today

Ringo addressed the persisted reports that John had doubts about his own voice:

“John always wanted a lot of echo on his voice. He had a great voice and when he was singing, he gave all of that. I don’t feel personally he was insecure about his voice. Everybody wants to be someone else, to be different.”

The album had followed John and Yoko’s exploration of ‘Primal Scream therapy” as a way to unleash their inner selves, and the new music introduces a raw, uninhibited edge to teh former Beatles voice.

Ringo added: “I can’t say enough about this record because there’s no downside to it. I think it may have had something to do with the Primal Scream, because there’s quite a bit of screaming on it. That was the emotional place I feel he was at, at that time.”

Both Ringo and Yoko today paid tribute to John’s honest soul-searching on the album.

DMX’s Kids Deliver Heartbreaking Eulogies At Memorial: ‘He Was The Best Dad Ever’

DMX’s children delivered emotional eulogies at their father’s memorial service, and even wrote an original song dedicated to their dad.

DMX has been remembered not only as an incredible talent in the music industry, but also a loving father to his children. His eldest son Xavier highlighted this during his eulogy at the April 24 memorial for the rapper, held in New York City. The touching service, which was also streamed live on YouTube, comes just a few weeks after the legendary rapper died at the age of 50 following a heart attack.

“Thank you to every single soul on this planet who has been with this family. You can never prepare for anything like this,” he began. “Our father is a king, our father is an icon. I am so honored to have a father like we have. This man deepened my ability to love.” Xavier also spoke about some of the “lessons” his dad taught him: “Always say thank you. No matter where you go a blessing is everywhere. Be kind to everyone.” He concluded his eulogy by saying, “We are his blessing right here,” referencing his other siblings standing beside him.

One of DMX’s younger sons also took the microphone, delivering a heartrending message while holding back tears. “He wasn’t just a rapper, he was the best dad ever.” One of his daughter’s also performed a rap dedicated to her dad. “I’m growing, I’m learning, to hold my head up. My daddy’s still holding my hand so i gotta get up,” she sang.

Prior to the service, DMX’s fiance Desiree Lindstrom paid tribute to her longtime partner after his sad passing. She took to Instagram on April 17, thanking God for blessing her with the musician, and father of her son, Exodus. “The first night we met and you held me close. I knew I would never let go. I was lost in you and nothing else mattered,” she wrote in her caption. “My best friend, my baby, my love…truly my everything. Thank you for us. Thank you for Exodus. Thank you God for Earl Simmons…forever X.”

His ex-wife, Tashera Simmons, also paid tribute to her “best friend” and “mentor”, with whom she shares four kids. “I also thank god for his life, and his peace, and his journey, and his life lessons that [were] passed on, and will live on for generations,” she said. In her caption, Tashera also wrote that she was “crying” and experiencing a “rollercoaster of emotions” as she celebrated her 50th birthday the day after he died. “I couldn’t bring myself to just celebrate and close the last 50yrs of my life with out celebrating the life of one of the most important person in the world to me, my ex-husband,” she wrote.

Elvis Graceland archives tour: The King's bling and Lisa Marie's fantastic reaction to it

The instantly recognisable TCB ring contains 16 carats of diamonds with an 11 1/2 carat solitaire diamond in the centre. TCB stood for Elvis’ motto ‘Taking Care of Business.’

Angie also told us: “His pinky ring size was between an 8 and a 9, his ring finger was around a 10. He wasn’t in to thumb rings.” 

Elvis had always loved to give expensive jewellery as gifts, but in his later years, he started wearing more and more himself.

Angie said: “Elvis never left Graceland not dressed. He was always ready to be seen and that meant to be fully dressed with his accessories, rings, jewellery, necklaces.

“Lisa always said you could hear him coming down the stairs before you saw him. And it wasn’t him walking heavily it was the clangs of the necklaces and stuff.

“When he left the upstairs he was ready to be seen and always fully decked out. He knew as soon as he went out the gate that he was on stage.”

The hip hop community gathered in Brooklyn, New York to pay tribute to the late DMX at his memorial service. Kanye West’s Sunday Service Choir also performed.

Many of DMX‘s friends came to pay tribute to the late rapper at his memorial in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, April 24. Among those who spoke were rappers Eve — the “First Lady of the Ruff Ryders” — and past collaborator Nas. Standing with Alicia Keys‘ husband Swizz Beatz, Eve remembered her longtime friend. “I am seriously the luckiest, luckiest woman in the world to have been adopted by the Ruff Ryders, but to have known DMX the way that I knew him as a man, a father, a friend,” she said.

“This is so hard y’all. What I pray, what I hope, I pray to God, I pray to our angels, our ancestors, that his journey was smooth. I know that he will rest in power. Rest in love, but most of all he feel rest in peace,” she added. Kanye West‘s Sunday Service Choir performed, kicking off the service which was attended by his 15 children, who also gave touching eulogies just weeks after their father’s unexpected death at 50.

Nas described his Belly co-star DMX as a “hip-hop icon” during his speech. “It’s an honor to be here tonight but at the same time, it’s a sad day. It’s a glorious day. I just want to say I’m honored to be here,” he said to the crowd, wearing a green camo outfit with a hat.

The April 24 memorial was held in DMX’s native New York City at the Barclay’s Center. The touching service, which was also streamed live on YouTube, came just a few weeks after the visionary musician died at the age of 50 following a heart attack.

He loved his family with all of his heart and we cherish the times we spent with him.”

Stars like T.I., actually named DMX as one of his 50 greatest rappers of all time on The Brew Podcast, quickly took to social media to share loving messages about the musician. “Rest In Peace to a cultural icon. There are no words that can mend the loss the hip-hop community felt today #RIPDMX,” he wrote, including the white dove emoji, a symbol of peace. Our thoughts are with DMX’s friends, family and fans.
