Aries-Fitness-Junkies-Lucy-Sykes-Jo-Piazza

Aries — Fitness Junkies by Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza



About: From the bestselling authors of The Knockoff, an outrageously funny novel about one woman's attempt--through clay diets, naked yoga, green juice, and cultish workout classes--to win back her career, save her best friend, and lose thirty pounds.

When Janey Sweet, CEO of a couture wedding dress company, is photographed in the front row of a fashion show eating a bruffin--the delicious lovechild of a brioche and a muffin--her best friend and business partner, Beau, gives her an ultimatum: Lose thirty pounds or lose your job. Sure, Janey has gained some weight since her divorce, and no, her beautifully cut trousers don't fit like they used to, so Janey throws herself headlong into the world of the fitness revolution, signing up for a shockingly expensive workout pass, baring it all for Free the Nipple yoga, sweating through boot camp classes run by Sri Lankan militants and spinning to the screams of a Lycra-clad instructor with rage issues. At a juice shop she meets Jacob, a cute young guy who takes her dumpster-diving outside Whole Foods on their first date. At a shaman's tea ceremony she meets Hugh, a silver fox who holds her hand through an ayahuasca hallucination And at a secret exercise studio Janey meets Sara Strong, the wildly popular workout guru whose special dance routine has starlets and wealthy women flocking to her for results that seem too good to be true. As Janey eschews delicious carbs, pays thousands of dollars to charlatans, and is harassed by her very own fitness bracelet, she can't help but wonder: Did she really need to lose weight in the first place?

A hilarious send-up of the health and wellness industry, Fitness Junkie is a glorious romp through the absurd landscape of our weight-obsessed culture.

Oprah: "I can't accept myself if I'm over 200 pounds"




Although she is a proponent for body-positivity and fat-acceptance, Oprah revealed that she can't accept herself if she weighs over 200 pounds, since a heavier weight puts her at risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Oprah explained that in order for your heart to keep pumping, your body needs the least amount of weight possible to do that. She says that people should totally accept their weight, but that for her personal acceptance meant finding the right weight-loss plan. Oprah says that being in control of her body is more important to her than being skinny.

Taylor Sheridan asked casting directors to vet the background of Native American actors he cast


  • Writer-director Taylor Sheridan's new film Wind River is set in a remote Native American reservation in Alaska

  • He asked the casting directors to make sure to cast actors who could prove they had Native American ancestry (the writer of the piece points out that this is a thorny issue and is sometimes impossible to prove as most Native Americans are of mixed descent including some of the actors that were eventually cast)

  • Sheridan asked leaders of the Wind River nations to read over the script and provide guidance

  • Even though the movie is set on a Native American reservation Sheridan wrote the two leads as white (portrayed by Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen) because he said he didn't want to be a white guy putting words in the mouths of Native Americans portraying their experience

🚨 🚨 🚨 Celebs react to Mueller impanelling a grand jury for Russia investigation 🚨 🚨 🚨



Kumail Nanjiani - Actor/Comedian (Silicon Valley/Adventure Time/The Big Sick)


Today, two proposals were sent forward to protect Special Prosecutor Robert Swan Mueller III. If you've been living under a rock, the man was appointed as the Special Counsel by the DOJ in the investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 US elections and matters relating to it. The legislation would protect Mueller from being fired by 45 without cause or at least a reason good enough to convince a panel of federal judges.

Add to that, today we found out that Mueller has impaneled a grand jury in the Russia investigation. Along with that, we've learned that Mueller is looking into the financial trail in regards to 45 and has subpoenaing Donald Junior in regards to his June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower.

ONTD Original: 5 Celebrities Who Have Chosen to Stay Child-Free

Tabloids are obsessed with celebrity pregnancies (see Jennifer Aniston's decades long pregnancy as an example). Paparazzi clamour to get the first shot
of newborn celeb offspring, baby bump posts on social media are all the rage, and interviewers are often desperate to be the first to sit down with a new celebrity parent. But while Hollywood (and society in general) spends a lot of time and attention on who is having babies and when, there are many celebrities that have chosen to stay child-free instead. Below are just some of the celebrities who have explicitly stated their desire for a child-free lifestyle:

1. Dame Helen Mirren

The 72 year-old has spoken openly about her choice to not have children:

“I never felt the need for a child and never felt the loss of it," she told AARP for its June magazine. "I’d always put my work before anything.”

Mirren even joked that she was in no rush to marry and called the institution "voluntary imprisonment." She's come around after meeting her husband.


Mirren married director, Taylor Hackford, in 1997 when she was 52. It was her first marriage.

ONTD Fave Carly Rae Jepsen Thinks The Song of the Summer Race is a "Dangerous Trap"


On fans calling "Cut to the Feeling" the Song of the Summer: "Obviously, it’s really flattering to hear that, but the song of the summer idea has always seemed a little crazy to me because I think you can have whole soundtracks and many songs."

• Feels that the yearly rat face to have one song declared as the "Song of the Summer" is a dangerous trap to get into. Feels it takes the heart out of writing music and you get caught up referencing songs that have worked before especially in the Los Angeles writing scene.

• Explains how there was a transition between the massive hype of "Call Me Maybe" into E*MO*TION but that she's content with her current mindie success. Carly adds: "It’s a little more intimate and less No. 1s, but I really don’t need those to be happy."

• Would love to share more unreleased material from the E*MO*TION sessions but feels she wouldn't be able to get away with releasing a Side C (my impact).

    The Young And The Restless’ Star Adrienne Frantz Sues For $5 Million After Dog Bite




    In 2014, She was shooting a love scene with Canadian actor John Cor on the set of “The Perfect Girlfriend” when the dog attacked her.
    The dog was allegedly no stray. It is said to be an untrained Boston Terrier that had a role in the movie.

    The dog bite allegedly had severe consequences for Frantz. The actress was three months pregnant and opted to not get a tetanus shot in fear of harming her unborn child.
    Frantz suffered a miscarriage less than two weeks after the bite, as well as post-traumatic stress, anxiety, depression and Graves’ disease.

    The production company concedes that a dog “incident” took place, but insists Frantz was not seriously or permanently injured.

It's available to more than 7,800 restaurants in 47 countries with that service expanding to about 25% of the current US locations with UberEats (a partnership that started earlier this January).
