ARod Hangs With His Ex

Alex Rodriguez reunited with this ex-wife, Cynthia Scurtis, over the weekend as his former fiancée, Jennifer Lopez, continues to fuel reconciliation rumors with her former flame Ben Affleck.  They both hit the gym together according to his Instagram Story.   “Cynthia is a world class mommy to our girls … wrapping ice though?!?!?! LOL,” he jokingly captioned the post (via Us Weekly).   Rodriquez and Scurtis wed in 2002 but later split in July 2008. They share two daughters: Natasha, 16, and Ella, 13. He previously talked about how he balances co-parenting with this ex on the “Raising the Bar” podcast in January.  He admitted it “takes some navigating” but through fatherhood, he’s learned to be a “more compassionate, more considerate” person.   “When I want to do things at Christmas with the girls, I may start asking for, not permission, but proactively in July I may be talking about Christmas, versus if I was in a different state of mind, I would drop it Dec. 15 and say, ‘Hey, Cynthia, can I have the kids?'” he recalled  A source added that Arod is having a hard time moving on. “It’s a tough pill to swallow but that’s his new reality,” the source said.
*********Why do these people always sound like they’re being scripted by a PR person?? BECAUSE THEY ARE!!!!

BTS McDonald’s Meal

McDonald’s limited edition “BTS Meal” — and all its parts, including the food wrappers — are becoming collectible items, with the dipping sauces being resold online at grossly inflated prices.  McDonald’s launched the meal in May in collaboration with the K-pop phenomenon. To be released in almost 50 countries, the highly sought-after meal comes in a purple box decorated with the BTS logo and consists of nine Chicken McNuggets, sweet chili and Cajun sauces, medium fries and a drink.  For many fans, everything inside the limited edition meal has become a collectible item – from the bag the meal comes in to the purple paper boxes, as well as the dipping sauces.  On eBay, two unopened sweet chili and Cajun sauces from the BTS Meal were listed for hundreds of dollars. The meal costs around $10 at McDonald’s.  Experts say some fervent fans of the band who live in countries like China and Japan, where the themed meal is not yet available, may willingly spend the money to participate in the global trend.
*****Look for the meal that’s banned in North Korea!!
*****If you ask for a Happy Meal in North Korea, they shoot you through the forehead!!
********What kind of drink comes with the BTS meal?? “K-Pop!!!”

Queen Gets New Corgi Puppy

Queen Elizabeth II received a 6-week old corgi from her middle son, Prince Andrew, and his daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, according to The Sun.  “The Queen has had a rough time and she is absolutely delighted to have a new corgi,” an insider told The Sun.  They presented the Queen with the corgi pup on Thursday, which would have been her late husband Prince Philip’s 100th birthday. The gift also came just days before the monarch’s official 95th birthday, which she celebrated on Saturday.  In May, the Queen’s 5-month-old old dachshund-corgi cross Fergus, also a gift from Andrew, sadly died, reportedly leaving her “distraught.” Andrew is said to have given Fergus and another dog to his mother earlier this year while Philip was in the hospital.  “[The Queen] was distraught when Fergus died suddenly,” the royal insider said, “but this new dog will be perfect company for [her other dog] going forward.”
*****Hey, Liz!! Try not to kill this one!!!
*******Good sucking up, Andrew!!!!
********Andrew is thinking he may need her to help with his bail money!!
*********Even the Queen needs an emotional support dog!!!

Thomas Markle Goes After Oprah

Meghan Markle’s father has ripped into Oprah Winfrey over her explosive interview with his daughter and husband Prince Harry this spring.  Thomas Markle — who has been estranged from Meghan for years — is now accusing Winfrey of “using” the couple to benefit her own career and “taking advantage” of Harry while in a “weakened” state.  “Oprah Winfrey, for one, I think Oprah Winfrey is playing Harry and Meghan,” he said in a new interview with “60 Minutes Australia.” “I think she’s using them to build her network and build her new shows. I think she’s taking advantage of a very weakened man and getting him to say things that you just shouldn’t be saying on television.”  It’s no secret that Thomas and Meghan have been estranged for years.  He infamously staged photos for money ahead of Meghan and Harry’s royal wedding in 2018, and also leaked a personal letter from her to news outlets. Meghan’s half sister, Samantha Markle, later took the blame for setting up the photoshoot in hopes of “benefitting” both her father and the royal family.  The staged photo controversy eventually led to him bailing on walking Meghan down the aisle and the wedding altogether.
********He’s not used to being a celebrity!! When you make a mistake, you blame it on everyone else!! He should have claimed he was being “fat-shamed!!!” You know, get some sympathy!!
*******He DID say that there is now even more Markle blood in the Royal Family, which we loved!!
******If Harry won’t shut up, why should Thomas???

Kevin Hart Slams Cancel Culture

In an interview with the Sunday Times, Kevin Hart attacked the internet trend, saying, “Shut the f–k up!”  Cancel culture — the viral phenomenon of “canceling” people, brands, companies and shows because of problematic ideologies either from the past or present — has changed comedy, according to Hart. Things that used to be funny or accepted are now cancellable, and the possibility of old stand-up bits and tweets resurfacing could “bite you in the ass.”  The only way to grow, he said, is to mess up and learn from it.  “If you allow it to have an effect on you, it will. Personally? That’s not how I operate,” Hart told the UK outlet. “I understand people are human. Everyone can change.”  Hart, having been canceled a number of times in recent years, also reflected on stepping down from hosting the Oscars in 2019 after receiving backlash on the internet over homophobic tweets and old jokes. He posted a lengthy apology on his Instagram after the debacle, re-emphasizing the need for personal growth that comes from learning from mistakes. Hart isn’t the first celebrity to mock cancel culture, though. Last month, Chris Rock blamed the trend for creating “boring” entertainment because people are playing it too “safe.”

Kristin & Jay’s Messy Money Battle-(Star)

Pay up!  Kristin Cavallarie and Jay Cutler may be headed back to court after the former NFL player, 38, demanded half of her lifestyle brand, Uncommon James, in the divorce.  According to reports, Jay believes that he deserves a stake in the company since the Hills alum, 34, started the business while they were married.  “He’s been told that he has a rock-solid case given that he helped run the business,” says a source.  “So he sees no reason to show Kristin any mercy.”  In an episode of Very Cavallari, the retired QB said that in addition to working in IT, shipping and designing, he also served as a general consultant.  The reality star vehemently denied his claims then-and plans on denying them now.  “Kristin can’t believe Jay would do something like this,” the source adds.  “She worked so hard to get where she is today.  There’s no way Kristin is going down without a fight.”

Otter Removed From Under The Hood

Animal rescuers in Scotland responded to a “very unusual” situation when a resident discovered an otter was hiding in the engine compartment under the hood of their car.  The Scottish SPCA said rescuers responded to a vehicle parked near a pond in Edinburgh after the owner reported an otter had fled under the car and made its way up into the engine compartment.  “The poor otter was spooked by the residents, and it is likely that he used it as a shelter to hide,” the SSPA said in a Facebook post.  The rescuers opened up the hood of the car to extract the otter, but the animal, apparently spooked by its would-be helpers, wriggled free of the vehicle’s engine and ran off without assistance.  The post said the rescuers were “unable to give him a thorough check over, but it is unlikely he was injured as there is no way he could have made his getaway if he was!”  See the pic HERE.
********The animal said, “You otter stop parking here!!!”
*******They wanted to give him a check up, but he took off and went to his own doctor!!

Odd Mona Lisa Petition Makes The Rounds

A petition urging billionaire Jeff Bezos to buy Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and eat it has gotten hundreds of signatures.  “Nobody has eaten the mona lisa and we feel jeff bezos needs to take a stand and make this happen,” the joke petition that went up a year ago on and gained hundreds of signers Thursday reads.  “gobble da lisa,” one signer wrote while another joked, “I feel like this is something society needs… Jeff, we need you to make this sacrifice for society.”  The Mona Lisa is owned by the French government and is on permanent display at the Louvre museum in Paris.   Bezos, who is one of the richest men in the world and became the first man to top $200 billion in net worth this year, seems to have no immediate plans to ingest art but is planning an 11-minute trip to space on his company Blue Origin’s first crewed flight scheduled for July 20th.

Man Jumps Into Lake Michigan Everyday

A Chicago man who jumped into Lake Michigan to treat a hangover in June 2020 has now jumped into the lake for 365 consecutive days.  Dan O’Conor took a leap into the water Saturday at Montrose Harbor, marking his 365th consecutive jump into Lake Michigan in what has become his daily routine amid the COVID-19 pandemic.  “I started jumping in Lake Michigan on June 13 [2020], that was the first day, and the first day I came down here was because I was hungover. And it felt so good I just started doing it every day,” O’Conor told WLS-TV.  He said he found jumping into the lake was a good way to clear his mind of the world’s ills.  “You know, with everything that was happening, you talk about June, it was the pandemic and the politics and the protests, just all of that, I could come down here and dive in the water and it would just kind of clear it, clear the palette and cleanse the day, start anew,” he said.

6 Stretches To Do In The Morning If You Have Back Pain

Huffington Post



“This is one of my favorite spinal mobility stretches to do, particularly during the pandemic since we’ve all been homebound and likely hunched over a lot,” said Christina Rodriguez, a board-certified orthopedic specialist and physical therapist at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

To do a cat-cow, start on your hands and knees. Place your wrists under your shoulders and your knees under your hips. Inhale as you arch your back gently, stomach dropping toward the floor and gaze lifting up to the ceiling. (This is cow pose.) As you exhale, draw your stomach to your spine, and round your back to the ceiling. Your chin and gaze should be pointed down at the mat. (This is cat pose.) Repeat 10 times (or as many as you feel comfortable doing) to help loosen things up and improve your range of motion.


Upper Back Foam Roller Stretch

Rodriguez said this stretch works best with a foam roller, but a rolled up, thick blanket or yoga bolster will also do the trick.

Start on the floor with your knees bent. Place the foam roller underneath your shoulder blades and interlace your hands behind your head. Using your legs to push you, roll the foam roller up and down your upper back slightly. Repeat for 10 reps.

“Another option is to use a chair that has a middle-high chair back,” Rodriguez added. “Arch your back up along the back of the chair for 10 seconds to get a similar stretch.”


Seal Pose

Start flat on your stomach with your palms down underneath your shoulders. Keep your legs and hips on the ground as you press yourself up. Hold for three to five seconds and lower back to the starting position. Repeat for 10 reps.

“This will target your lower back and is also great for people who find themselves sitting for most of the day,” Rodriguez said.


Spinal Twist

Sitting in a chair with your feet flat on the ground, use the arms of the chair to turn just your upper body to the right. Hold and repeat on the left side.

You can also do this move on the floor for a deeper stretch: Start flat on your back and bring your right knee up to your chest. Then bring it over to the left side as you look over your right shoulder. Hold it for a few seconds, then on the left side by bringing the left knee up to your chest then over to the right side and you look over your left shoulder.

“If you don’t stretch often this might make you feel a little uncomfortable, but there should never be any sharp pain when stretching,” Rodriguez said. “Make sure to listen to your body and if something doesn’t feel right, back off a bit.”


Hamstring Stretch

“Tightness in the hamstrings can cause a person to have to use their back more when bending forward,” said Susan Fu, manager of rehabilitation services at Providence Saint John’s Health Center’s Performance Therapy in Santa Monica. “The hamstring stretch is great because it will decrease tension across the back and improve the hip mobility in the posterior chain.”

Start with a wall hamstring stretch: Lie on your back and keep one leg on the floor. Place the other against a wall as straight as possible without overextending the knee. Hold for 10 seconds and switch legs.


Piriformis Stretch (Pretzel Stretch)

Lie flat on a mat or the floor face up and cross your right ankle over the left thigh (your left leg should be bent, foot flat on the floor). Place your hands under your left knee and gently pull toward your chest. Hold for 10 seconds and switch sides, crossing your left ankle over the right thigh.

“This stretch will help with hip rotation, overall mobility, and can decrease the tightness in the piriformis muscle (which is near your glute) that may compress on the sciatic nerve and cause back pain,” Fu said.
