Naya Rivera’s Sister Moves In With Ex-Husband

Naya Rivera’s sister spoke out in defense of her late sister’s ex-husband, Ryan Dorsey, moving in with her following Rivera’s death.  “In the darkest time of my life, the only thing that is important is my friends & family,” Nickayla posted on her Instagram Story. “Showing up for my nephew even though I can’t show up for myself.”  She said she was “not concerned” with the appearance of the decision, seemingly responding to social media users who found the decision a bit strange.  “I’m not concerned with the way things look because no one can see each agonizing moment we all endure,” she continued. “What matters most I’ve learned, is to show compassion, not to judge others, & never take a moment of life for granted.  “I hope you all can do the same.”  Rivera died July 8th from drowning at age 33 while swimming with Josey in Lake Piru. Josey, who was found safe on their boat, later told investigators that he heard his mom yell “help” before succumbing to the currents.
********Sad story all  the way ’round. 

Chadwick Boseman Paid Cast Member’s Salary

Sienna Miller, who was Chadwick Boseman’s co-star from the movie “21 Bridges,” revealed that he stepped up and paid part of her movie salary from his own earnings after a parity agreement couldn’t be reached by the studio.  “He produced ’21 Bridges’ and had been really active in trying to get me to do it. He was a fan of my work, which was thrilling, because it was reciprocated from me to him, tenfold,” Miller, 38, told Empire magazine. “So he approached me to do it, he offered me this film, and it was at a time when I really didn’t want to work anymore. I’d been working non-stop and I was exhausted, but then I wanted to work with him.”  She said she was at first hesitant to share the details but wanted the story to be “a testament to who he was.” The star of Marvel’s “Black Panther” died in August 2020 from colon cancer. He was just 43 years old.  She said that “21 Bridges” was a “pretty big-budget film” and noted that “everybody understands about the pay disparity in Hollywood, but I asked for a number that the studio wouldn’t get to.”  But because she “was hesitant to go back to work and my daughter was starting school and it was an inconvenient time, I said, ‘I’ll do it if I’m compensated in the right way.”  Miller added, “And Chadwick ended up donating some of his salary to get me to the number that I had asked for. He said that that was what I deserved to be paid.”

Danica Patrick Has Warning For New Boyfriends

Danica Patrick’s next boyfriend has his “work cut out” for him.  During a recent appearance on Quibi’sThe Rachel Hollis Show,” she reflected on relationships in the wake of her split from Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers after two years of dating.  “The next guy has his work cut out for him because my intuition, my standards, my boundaries, my wants and needs are off the charts,” Patrick said. “Cause I’ve gotten to know me so much more. So it’s gonna be so much more narrow and specific. And I think that’s the challenge with a relationship.”  Much like Patrick, who has been candid about her breakup journey with Instagram followers, Rodgers also publicly divulged that he’s embracing a “better head space” as the 2020 NFL season gets underway.  “I have just a new and increased love of life. And I’ve made decisions and changes and habits that put me in a lot better head space and there’s just a lot of things that have come together in my life over the last few months that have really been enjoyable and reminded me, given me perspective, on life and in football to view things through the most positive lens I possibly can,” Rodgers said.

Peirce Brosnan Selling Malibu Home

Pierce Brosnan has listed his roughly 12,500-square-foot Malibu residence for a whopping $100 million, the Wall Street Journal reports.  That asking price makes this oceanfront residence the eighth-priciest home for sale in Los Angeles County.  The Journal notes that the creation of this Thai-inspired retreat was the direct result of his fourth Bond flick, 2002’s “Die Another Day,” which grossed $431.9 million at the box office — and boosted Brosnan’s bank account with a big bonus.  He then gave a directive to his wife, filmmaker and journalist Keely Shaye Brosnan. “‘Go build your dream house,’ ” he told the Journal of his request. “And she did.”  Called Orchid House, the home’s Southeast Asian inspiration comes from Brosnan’s time shooting the 1997 Bond film “Tomorrow Never Dies.” It took about 10 years to build, and features include wide-plank teak floors and a tiled roof made of green clay inspired by the temples the Brosnans admired in Thailand.  “It was a labor of love to get the exact green color,” Keely, who oversaw the home’s building and design processes, told the Journal.  The property spans about 1 acre, with roughly 120 feet of Pacific Ocean frontage.

Dr. Dre Calls Out His Ex-Wife’s Demands

Dr. Dre is reportedly speaking out on his divorce from Nicole Young, his wife of 24 years. According to TMZ, he calls Young’s demand for $2 million a month in temporary spousal support “absurd,” explaining he’s still covering the majority of her financial needs. Legal docs state Young’s attorneys have already made more money off of Dre in the last two months than most Los Angeles residents make in a year. Dre says he’s “allowing” her to live in his $20-25 million Malibu mansion where his security brings Young meals prepared by private chefs three to five times a week. He also reportedly says his business manager pays Young’s AmEx Centurion Black Card — and those bills range from $150,000 to $350,000 per month.  Aside from what Dre describes as “unauthorized charges for [Young’s] attorney fees, all of her other expenses have been shouldered by Dre who says, “This all seems like the wrath of an angry person being exacerbated by opportunistic lawyers.”  Dre claims he’s also offered to pay her lawyers another $350,000 through the end of the year even though she was accused of pilfering over $350,000 from Record One recording studio, a company she and Dre founded in 2015.  Young filed for divorce in June citing “irreconcilable differences.” In addition to the $2 million per month in temporary spousal support, she’s also asking for $5 million to cover her legal fees.

A 30-year-old man filed an assault complaint with the Mexico City Attorney General’s Office against his mother and aunt after they kicked him out of the house.  Christian Uriel told authorities that he was “offended” because his mother ran him out of her home for being a deadbeat.  His mother described her son as a nini, meaning that he doesn’t go to school or work, and she became fed up with his behavior. She says he spent the entire coronavirus quarantine on a couch playing video games and demanded that she bring him whatever he desired. Once lockdown conditions were lifted she said she asked him to get a job to help out with expenses, but he refused. His mother enlisted the help of the boy’s aunt, and together they poured cold water on him and struck him with brooms until he finally left the house.  A survey last year of 3,000 Mexican millennials — people aged 25 to 35 — by De las Heras Demotecnia found 63% still lived with their parents and six out of 10 said they were in no hurry to begin a life like the one their parents led.

The five smells Americans hate most (and how to get rid of them)

Popular Science


No. 1: Getting skunk smell out of your house

Skunk spray may be one of the most putrid scents you’ll ever be unlucky enough to experience, but if you think about it, it may be one of the most effective and perfectly designed weapons in nature.

The main components in skunk spray are thiols and thioacetates, natural chemicals that contain sulfur, which is the reason why they smell like rotting eggs. Thiols are also extremely stable, meaning they can bind easily and strongly to other molecules, making them very hard to eliminate. To make matters worse, this concoction from hell is released by two glands—one on each side of the skunk’s anus—that act as independent nozzles, allowing for direct and precise spraying. If you or your dog run into a skunk in the wild and you make the mistake of presenting yourselves as predators, chances are you’ll get thoroughly sprayed—perfume-seller style.

Before we go into how to get rid of this awful odor, let’s debunk a common myth: Tomato juice doesn’t work well against skunk spray. It might mask the smell for a while, but its ingredients won’t react to the mammal’s sulfuric compounds. (You can bathe yourself in Chanel Nº5 and get the exact same result.)

If you’ve been skunked, the first thing you need to do is stay outside. If you bring the spray indoors, it will bind to any porous surfaces, like wood, fabrics, and rugs. Use water and soap repeatedly to get as much of the smell as possible off your skin. Once it’s manageable, go inside and shower as many times as necessary. Because skunks have impeccable aim, there’s little you can do to salvage your clothes—so unless you have a strong stomach and a big, open space to work on them, don’t even try.

If you’ve already stepped into your home after being skunked, ventilate as much as possible by opening doors and windows. An air current, especially, will help some of the stench find its way out. To clean everything else, use a solution of one quart hydrogen peroxide, one teaspoon of degreasing dishwashing liquid, and 1/4 cup of baking soda. Don’t leave the mixture on for too long, though—hydrogen peroxide can have a bleaching effect on textiles and wooden surfaces. The Humane Society of the United States also recommends the same solution to de-skunk household animals; just make sure you bathe them with regular pet shampoo afterward and clean sensitive areas with cool running water.

Keep in mind that depending on how much you were skunked, from what distance, and when the last time the mustelid sprayed its load was (they can take up to two weeks to replenish it fully), it’s possible you’ll need to repeat the cleaning several times. If the stench lingers, you might want to try a product specifically designed to counteract skunk odors.


No. 2: Getting mildew smell out of clothes

This seems like an easy one, but searching the internet will render all sorts of recommendations, so we turned to the experts for the most straightforward answer.

The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) recommends that you do some detective work to first figure out the source of the smell. If you don’t see the classic black-and-blueish mildew stains on your clothes, your washing machine may be the culprit. Start by checking for residual water from previous wash cycles. Bacteria thrive in warm and moist environments, so if your machine has accumulated water over time, they might be the ones causing that musty smell.

Should your washing machine be the problem, run a cleaning cycle as directed by the manufacturer and, if possible, add bleach to it. The amount will depend on the care instructions for your particular machine, but it should be around half a cup. Do this weekly and then decrease the frequency over time as the mildew smell gradually fades. If this doesn’t do the trick, there might be some mildew around the seals of the door—the ACI recommends wiping them with a water-bleach solution with ¾ cup of bleach for every gallon of cool water.

Once you get the odor out, avoid a bacterial comeback by leaving the door of your washing machine open after every cycle to help it dry out.

If your machine proves innocent and the mildew is still visible on your clothes, ACI experts recommend using a product with sodium hypochlorite to treat fabrics. Check the labels on your clothes first, though—if it’s safe to use chlorine bleach on them, run a wash cycle with the solution as directed. If your garment is too delicate and you can’t use bleach, opt for a product containing oxygen-based bleach, which is milder but almost nearly as effective.


No. 3: Getting cigarette smell out of clothes

The smell of cigarette smoke can stick to your breath, your hair, your clothes, and even the tips of your fingers. Usually, a regular cycle in the washing machine can eliminate the overwhelming odor from your garments—but if that doesn’t cut it, you might have to step up your attack.

First, leave your clothes to air dry outdoors so that the sun-ventilation combo can kill some of the odor. After that, try a regular washing cycle, this time adding ½ cup of baking soda. If the smell persists, or if your garment is too delicate to go in the washing machine or be exposed to sunlight for a prolonged period of time, then you’ll need the help of the dry cleaners.

Bonus tip: If people are smoking in your home, you might want to clean your light bulbs. The ACI explains that these gadgets can accumulate smoke particles and then release the smell of it back into the air every time they’re turned on and get hot. (It’s the same kind of physics behind your favorite aroma diffuser.) To prevent this, wait for your light bulbs to cool and then use a cleaning wipe on them. Finish up by opening windows for a fresh breeze or two. An easier, long term solution is upgrading to more energy-efficient LEDs—even if smoke particles get stuck in there, the bulbs will never get as hot as regular ones, so they won’t release any aromas back into the air.


No. 4: Getting gasoline smell out of your shoes

According to Google, there are a lot of clumsy fire enthusiasts out there, or at least a lot of people who are messy at the pump. Regardless of whether you identify more with the first than the second, ruining your shoes by spilling gasoline on them happens to a lot of people.

As with most odors or stains of oily origin, getting the smell of gas out of textiles requires a lot of work and patience—and it may not even work. If your shoes or clothes reek of petrol, it means there’s still residual fuel embedded in the fabric. That’s a big warning sign to not put them in the washing machine or dryer, as it can result in a fire or explosion.

If you don’t have any emotional attachment to your gasoline-smelling garments, the best solution is to just throw them away. If, on the other hand, you cannot picture your life without those old Chuck Taylors, roll up your sleeves and take a giant breath. This is going to take a while.

With gasoline, you have to go straight for the big guns. The ACI recommends soaking your garments in a strong degreasing product, like a powerful, industrial dish soap, and leaving them in a tub outside. If you’re dealing with a fancy pair of shoes, check the fabric care labels and try a patch test on the inside to make sure you won’t melt them. Once it’s safe, soak them overnight in the degreaser and rinse with water in the morning. If the smell persists—which is likely—repeat.


No. 5: Getting dog pee smell out of the carpet

Dogs are cute—until they pee on your carpet. If you look online, as many people across America have, you’ll find a lot of different methods to zap the lingering smell, with many involving some combination of water, baking soda, and vinegar. These ingredients might help at first, but as any dog owner knows, the smell of pee always comes back… Terminator style.

The main source of the pungent smell in your pet’s pee is uric acid, which isn’t just insoluble in water, but also tends to stick to porous surfaces like the fibers in your carpet. When using regular detergent or any combination of baking soda and vinegar, you’re fighting off the water-soluble components in urine. But humidity from the air and the cleaning solution crystallizes the uric acid, letting it live to fight another stinky battle.

Acting fast will give you the best shot at getting rid of eau de dog pee for good, but you’ll also need a strong chemical. The AIC suggests a product specially formulated to fight off pet pee stains, but you can also try an enzymatic detergent. These solutions use proteins to break down different components—uric acid among them—so it’s good to have it on hand if you happen to face an ugly stain or an offensive smell in the future. Before you use it, though, make sure you read the instructions of the product of your choice carefully, and test it on an inconspicuous spot of your carpet.

If you’re wondering whether enzymatic detergents will do the trick against cat pee, the answer is yes. But there’s one main difference. Even though cat and dog urine share the same stinky component (uric acid), it’s much more concentrated in felines, making their messes smell more like ammonia. Just as with dog pee, try a specialized product or go straight for the enzymatic cleaner. Chances are you’ll need to repeat the process a couple of times before your carpet stops smelling of kitty juice.
