Joe Newton This never-ending pandemic is bringing out the asshole in all of us.brand will open its own brick-and-mortar stores this year.The Golden Globes are back this weekend, but without the usual star-studded guests and celebrity presenters.Benji Madden said “I do” at the altar! On Wednesday January 5, Madden took to Instagram to share a loving tribute to his wife to mark the milestone.

My boyfriend is male, I am female, and we’ve been together almost three years.We live alone in separate homes, but spend about three or four nights a week together.It appears they’ll be featuring colorful wallpapers highlighting the rainbow assortment of lingerie, sleepwear and loungewear.We're both fully vaxxed and boosted, and we mask in public, etc.As we look towards a subdued digital soiree this Sunday, we take a look back at some of the most shocking Golden Globes moments from over the years.On the Monday before Christmas, I started feeling mild symptoms but tested negative.C.My boyfriend felt fine, and we spent a few nights together that week.Real life.

On the morning of Christmas Eve, I take a second at-home test and it’s positive.Related.Renée Zellweger’s badly-timed bathroom break Renee Zellweger was nowhere to be seen when it was revealed she would be adding another award to her collection in 2001.So, I canceled plans to see a friend that afternoon and spoke to my boyfriend.Our Christmas Eve plans involved dinner with some of his family members.An hour later he calls and says he tested negative and that he thinks the best thing would be for me to isolate alone on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.“I had lipstick on my teeth,” the multiple award-winner explained when she finally made it to collect her latest award.He was still planning to go see his family.You are beautiful in all ways, we are so lucky to have you what you do who you are day in and day out to the ones you love always true blue — hard to put it all in a IG post but I love to have a reason to say it out loud I love you @camerondiaz.

I burst into tears.He'd already been exposed and if his foremost concern was protecting his family, the logical thing to do would be to minimize contact with them, not me.As Golden Globes host Sandra Oh made a quip about the whitewashing Emma and other actresses like Scarlet Johnson have partakes in, Emma could be heard yelling an apology from her seat.I couldn't believe he was going to leave me at home alone over Christmas when we'd already had so much close contact that week.And he knows that spending holidays together as a couple is important to me! He called me back, we argued, and then he offered to have me come over to his house to sleep in the guestroom.Once I'm there, he changes his mind, and we wind up sharing his bed.While cameras never caught Emma’s face at the time of yelling, the actress later confirmed it was in fact her voice that viewers heard shout sorry..

The next morning, I want to clear the air and he tells me that he was angry about my behavior.He thinks I was being selfish and risked further exposing him.I am really confused and hurt by the way everything has unfolded.The comedy double act show no mercy when their heading things up - poking fun at the famous men sitting in their audience.Which one of us is being an asshole here? —Flamingly Upset Couple Knows Conflict Over Virus Is Dumb “I’m not going to assign the title of ‘asshole’ to either the letter writer, or her boyfriend,” said Dr.Stacy De-Lin, M.It's the best thing that ever happened to both Benj and I.

D.” Luckily for the funny friends, George - and the rest of the audience - took the joke well and laughed along with the roasting., a board-certified physician who shares sound science about COVID-19 on her invaluable Instagram account.“But there is a clear public health answer to this question: the writer should have isolated away from her boyfriend as soon as she knew she was positive, and her boyfriend, having known he had a significant exposure, should not have attended any family gatherings.” While Dr.Ricky, who presented the awards in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2016, and 2020, has never held back when heading up the evening - no matter how awkward things get.De-Lin doesn’t feel comfortable assigning the title of “asshole” to either of you, FUCKCOVID, I’m gonna go ahead and cut the asshole in half here — in a display of Solomonic wisdom — and award the title of “asshole” to both of you.

But you shouldn’t feel too bad about that, FUCKCOVID, seeing as this never-ending pandemic is bringing out the asshole in all of us.“In addition to addressing public health, we also need to address the incredible mental health toll that nearly two years of a pandemic has taken on all of us,” said Dr." The sometimes-controversial star also addressed the revelations Kevin Hart had lost his hosting gig at The Oscars thanks to homophobic tweets from his past.De-Lin.“Many of us longed to see our families and friends and were devastated when those plans were once again upended this year.Furthermore, the guidance on rapid testing, as well as the guidance on what vaccinated folks can and can't do, has been constantly changing." Michelle Williams talks women's rights Ricky Gervais may have told winners not to "lecture the public about anything" when accepting their awards in 2020, but Michelle Williams luckily ignored his advice to speak out about an important issue.

So, it's no wonder that her boyfriend still wanted to find a way to see his family and thought he could do so safely, and that the writer didn't want to be alone on Christmas when I'm sure she was already feeling so isolated.” And to put things in perspective, FUCKCOVID, it’s not like you punched a flight attendant or said, “Let’s Go, Brandon!” to Joe and Jill Biden on Christmas Eve.All you did was get upset."Because as women and as girls, things can happen to our bodies that are not our choice," she continued, urging women to "vote in your own self-interest.And you were right about one thing: If your boyfriend was gonna see anyone on Christmas Eve, it should’ve been you.Considering how much time you’d spent together after you became symptomatic (but before testing positive), you could reasonably argue that if you were going to expose him, you’d already exposed him.

So, in the spirit of harm reduction, he could’ve and should’ve canceled his plans with his family and spent the holiday with you instead.As the pair joined each other on stage to announce the winner for Best Drama Miniseries, the Jenny From the Block singer offered to open the envelope containing the news everyone was waiting for.And that’s what he did, right? So, as much as the suggestion that you spend Christmas alone may have upset you, you didn’t spend Christmas alone, right? So, maybe give your asshole boyfriend some credit for that? All that said, your boyfriend could reasonably argue that you could’ve and should’ve isolated yourself at the onset of your symptoms and not spent multiple nights with him before you predictably tested positive.But if you were to let go of your anger about him suggesting you spend Christmas alone, maybe that would inspire him to let go of his anger about not seeing his family.Because at the end of the day, FUCKCOVID, it was the same desire for human contact that prompted you to put your boyfriend at risk (by hanging out with him after the onset of symptoms) and prompted your boyfriend to contemplate putting his family at risk (by hanging out with them after a significant exposure)." Glancing at Jennifer's plunging neckline, Jeremy joked: "You’ve got the globes, too.So, recognizing your mutual assholery, maybe — in the spirit of the holiday — you two can forgive each other and move the fuck on.

While I had Dr.De-Lin on the line, I asked her for some advice for all of us — all us assholes — on getting through the next wave of this seemingly-never-ending pandemic."It’s time to address the elephant not in the room: Harvey Weinstein," the American comedian said during the 2018 awards ceremony.“We have ways that we can prevent the spread of the Omicron variant: get vaccinated and boosted, isolate when positive or after a high-risk exposure, wear masks in indoor settings, and keep gatherings outdoors,” said Dr.De-Lin.“The COVID Omicron variant is not only significantly more infectious than any variant we've seen so far, but it’s also coming at the worst possible time: the holiday season."They’re going to do another season of House of Cards.

So, it's running rampant through the country and the world, and hospitals are already at the breaking point, making it more important than ever to avoid catching and spreading the virus.” And as difficult as it might seem right now — and it seems mighty difficult — taking the long view will help us get through this.“It’s important to remember that this wave, and the pandemic itself, will get much better, and we will be able to gather with our families and friends again in the ways that we used to, without fear,” said Dr." Leonardo DiCaprio's 'fear' of Lady Gaga Who can forget the internet's reaction back in 2016, after catching Leonardo DiCaprio seemingly looking scared of Lady Gaga as she walked to collect her award.De-Lin.“In the meantime, I hope that the letter writer and her boyfriend, and all of us, can be patient and forgiving with each other in these challenging times.

” Follow Dr."Oh lord — that’s trending, huh?" Leonardo quipped when Entertainment Tonight showed him the infamous GIF from the Golden Globes.Stacy De-Lin on Instagram @stacydelin_md.In the mid to late 1980s when I was a toddler, my father had an affair.For some reason, he confessed to my mother in the early 1990s.In those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends and family, coworkers and then gradually, proudly, to everyone who knew her.She was furious, and they separated for two years.

My sister and I stayed with our mom during the week, and we shared a room in our father’s two-bedroom apartment on the weekends.During this time my mother frequently and loudly badmouthed him and would call him “the man in the apartment.You guys might be surprised, but I am not Honey Boo Boo child.” After two years they got back together, probably “for the kids,” but my mom constantly held the infidelity over my father’s head.My sister and I were aware of the former mistress's name, as my mother would bring her up whenever we passed by a motel or at other random moments.She still refers to my father as “the man in the apartment.Do you have a story to sell? Get in touch with us at webcelebs@trinitymirror.

” I hated this and I thought we all would have been better off had they just divorced.Their histrionics (her histrionics) and some incredibly punitive nuns instilled in me, a heterosexual male, the idea that boys are stupid and bad, and girls are mean and inflict punishment.I developed shame about being male coupled with a resentment of women, issues I’m still working through.Now my parents are well into their 70s and my mother has actually gotten worse.My mother somehow found his former mistress online and uses her photo as her screensaver.

She brings up the affair constantly and bullies my father about it daily.This has been going on for thirty years! Right now, I’m out of town for the holidays with my mom and my sister and my dad told me he might move out before she returns.Is this salvageable? Should I insist he stay? For the first half of my life (I’m nearly forty) I was firmly on “Team Mom.” That has radically shifted in recent years.My dad can be a real jackass, but he has carried this cross for too long and doesn't deserve this.

—Sad And Disappointed Seeing Ongoing Nightmare “The victim of the affair is not always the victim of the marriage,” as famed psychotherapist and author Esther Perel says, and your parents’ marriage may be the best single example of a marriage where the cheater is (or became) the victim.Yes, SADSON, your dad wronged your mom when he had that affair thirty years ago.(An affair he should’ve kept his mouth shut about.) But if your mom couldn’t bring herself to forgive your dad and/or couldn’t stop punishing him — or, worse yet, if she only took him back so she could punish every day for the rest of his life — then your mom long ago ceded the moral high ground to your dad.Someone who can’t forgive infidelity in a reasonable period of time (like, say, during a two-year separation) has no business taking a cheating spouse back.

And someone who can’t resist involving their children in a long, vindictive, self-pitying campaign to destroy their cheating spouse has no business having children in the first place.Your dad should move out, your mom should get a mental health assessment, and you and your sister should stop — finally — allowing your mother to abuse you like this.P.S.I hope there were other women.

I’m just writing to say thanks.When I was a teenager back in the late 2000s, my head was filled with fantasies of sadism and domination, and I was convinced I was a monster.But I found your column and every once in a while, you answered a question from someone about hardcore BDSM.No matter how (consensually) cruel and unusual someone’s fantasies were, you always spoke non-judgmentally about best practices in BDSM safety and wished them well.Yours was the first voice to ever tell me, even indirectly, that my sexual fantasies weren’t the mark of a broken and irredeemably evil mind.

It was the first step on the road to learning to love myself.You probably hear that sort of thing from a lot of readers, but even so.I wanted to tell you that your column basically saved my life.I can’t thank you enough.—Savage’s Advice, Dude, It Saved Me Thank you for the very sweet note, SADISM, and here’s hoping my column didn’t just make you feel better about your fantasies, but also inspired you to go find consenting adult partners who wanted to realize them with and for you!
