Clare Crawly has finally said goodbye to her breast implants after suffering from numerous health problems over the last few years!

On Saturday, the former Bachelorette star took to Instagram to update her followers on her breast implant removal surgery, sharing a snapshot of herself in a paper gown and hugging a vase of flowers in the hospital. She wrote in the caption:

“Surgery is officially done + I am on the road to healing!”

She then thanked her medical team — Dr. David Rankin and Dee Hicks — for making her “incredibly comfortable throughout this whole process” before adding:

“It wasn’t an easy decision, but they truly are the most compassionate team who truly want to help women like me heal from BII (Breast Implant Illness). On top of that, having the overwhelming support and love from family and friends has just meant the world to me. Having you all give me a boost when my brain has slipped into moments of doubt, truly lifted me up.”

The reality star then concluded with a powerful message, expressing:

“And so I will continue to pass It on to anyone else who needs to hear this… our body shape does not define us or make us any less lovable or worthy. We are perfectly made just the way we are!”

Preach! Ch-ch-check out the post (below):

Crawley followed up with her surgery post on her IG Story, in which she showed off the bandages around her chest:

“I still feel amazing. No pain meds. And the best thing so far … no itchy rashes anymore! I had them for 5 years on and off. My skin feels incredible!”

Yes, love to hear that! Take a look at her “day 2” of recovery post (below):

As you may know, the 40-year-old hairstylist opened up about her struggles with Breast Implant Illness earlier this month, announcing her decision to have them removed after her body showed signs of rejecting them. She said in the video at the time:

“The truth is, I’ve been going through things medically with my body that I have not had answers to, to be honest, for a couple years, and it’s been hard, and it’s been frustrating, and it’s been scary for me to know something’s not right… My skin has been having really bad hives and rash. My whole body is just inflamed and itchy.”

And after two mammograms and a consultation with her doctor, Clare decided (obviously) to move forward with the procedure, saying:

“As much as I love my implants, my body is fighting them and recognizes it as something obviously foreign in my body. As much as I loved having these, this is so important to me that I love my health more. I love my well-being more. That’s what matters.”

Congrats Clare!! We are wishing you a speedy recovery!

Ellen Pompeo Says Her Sex Scenes With Patrick Dempsey On Grey’s Anatomy Were ‘Really Hard’ For Her Husband To Watch!

Home » Ellen Pompeo » Ellen Pompeo Says Her Sex Scenes With Patrick Dempsey On Grey’s Anatomy Were ‘Really Hard’ For Her Husband To Watch!

While most viewers were devastated when Patrick Dempsey left Grey’s Anatomy, it turns out there was possibly one person who actually breathed a sigh of relief!

During an interview on the Ladies First with Laura Brown podcast, Ellen Pompeo revealed that her husband Chris Ivery wasn’t always a fan of McDreamy — AKA Derek Shepherd — on the show because he became jealous of their intimate moments! She explained:

“Poor guy had no idea what he was getting into. I remember in the beginning it was really hard for him. He was like, ‘This is not what I signed up for. You go to work and make out with that. I like Patrick and everything, he’s a good dude, but like really?’”

While Chris may not have signed up for it, viewers certainly haven’t complained over the years! We mean, it is undeniable how much chemistry Ellen and Patrick had on the show. The 51-year-old actress added:

“He was really a trooper. He’s my favorite person.”

As fans already know, the co-stars’ characters were madly in love on the hit medical drama until Derek’s untimely death in season 11. Thankfully, the 55-year-old actor returned for a few surprise cameos in the latest season while Meredith was in a coma with COVID-19. Patrick told Variety of the shocking reunion at the time:

“I thought it was a beautiful way to close it. The intention was to really give people some hope because they are such an iconic couple. We’ve lost so many people this year, the thought that we’d have angels hovering around us taking care of us is a good message to send out in such a bleak world that we’re living in. So for all of us, it was a beautiful ending to this story. I’m so grateful that I did it and happy that the fans really loved it.”

They truly are so iconic! A couple of months after the special episode aired, Pompeo also opened up about what it was like to work with her former cast member again, telling Deadline:

“Patrick and I have this chemistry where I think even from when we first met, for some reason, it just felt like we’ve known each other for a hundred years, and it’s just the same feeling. It’s like riding a bike, we just have a chemistry and a dynamic that’s always served us well, and I think we have a genuine affection for each other.”

AWWW!!!

Elsewhere on the podcast, Pompeo went on to express how much she truly misses the chemistry from the original cast, sharing:

“During the early days, we all really had something. We had a lot of fun back then.”

Anyone else still recovering from Alex Karev’s exit?! The momma of three then noted some of the life lessons she has learned over the past 16 years on the Grey’s set:

“I can see people now in a work environment and really see how they’re performing. I know how sets run, and I know when someone is burnt out. I know when someone is afraid to speak up, and I know when someone is bored and not contributing. I know when a director’s phoning it in. I can see people’s behavior pretty clearly.”

Hopefully, things have eased for her hubby after all these years later too! Reactions to Ellen’s partner’s initial thoughts on her sex scenes with McDreamy? Let us know in the comments (below)!

[Warning: Potentially Triggering Content]

Sad news for those who have been keeping up with the aftermath of the terrible movie theater shooting in California earlier this week…

According to TMZ, the Corona Police Department has confirmed that Anthony Barajas has passed away on Saturday morning after sustaining injuries from the brutal crime. The police department stated in a press release:

“The Corona Police Department has been notified that Anthony Barajas passed away early this morning. We extend our thoughts and condolences to his family and friends.”

As you may have already heard, the 19-year-old TikTok star and Rylee Goodrich were on a first date at the 9:35 pm screening of The Forever Purge movie at the Crossings Shopping Center in Corona, California on Monday night when the incident happened. Police responded to a call at the theater over two hours later, where they found the teens with multiple gunshot wounds. Goodrich sadly succumbed to her injuries at the scene, while Barajas was transported to the local hospital and placed on life-support.

So far, authorities have determined that the shooting had “no known motive” and described it as an “unprovoked attack.” On Tuesday, police arrested Joseph Jimenez after recovering a firearm from his residence that matched the murder weapon used in the crime and other undisclosed evidence. The 20-year-old suspect was charged for murder, attempted murder, and robbery, and he is currently being held on a $2 million bail. In the statement on Saturday, investigators said they are “working with the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office to add an additional count of first-degree murder against Joseph Jimenez.”

Two separate GoFundMe campaigns have been organized for Barajas and Goodrich, which have raised more than $60,000 each for their loved ones. The social media influencer, who holds almost 1 million followers on TikTok, was remembered by family as an “amazing brother, son and friend.” The fundraiser page added:

“Anthony was the light of so many peoples lives and there are tough times ahead, but we have amazing family and friends to get through this.”

Meanwhile, the GoFundMe for Goodrich said:

“Words seem inadequate to express the sorrow felt by the loss of Rylee. Her kindness, and gentle spirit will be remembered forever.”

As we’ve said before, this whole thing is just so horrific. We cannot imagine what the families are feeling at the moment, but we are keeping them in our thoughts during this difficult time.

Suki Waterhouse Calls Out Gossip Girl For Brutal Joke About Her & Robert Pattinson!

Home » TV News » Suki Waterhouse Calls Out Gossip Girl For Brutal Joke About Her & Robert Pattinson!

The Gossip Girl reboot has struck again! Suki Waterhouse called out the popular show for making a brutal joke about her relationship with Robert Pattinson.

Here is a quick rundown of what happened on the HBO Max series…

In the third episode, the resident mean girls of Constance Billard Monet and Luna are trying to save the image of influencer Julien Calloway, who recently broke up with her boyfriend and has a major problem with her social media presence at the moment. So the friends decided to help Julien’s half-sister Zoya, who happens to be dating the queen bee’s ex-beau. Of course, all of this is a backup plan just in case Julien continues to spiral away from their carefully crafted brand.

And here is where the line about Waterhouse drops. Later on, Luna attempts to educate Zoya on the importance of appearances, saying:

“When are you going to get it? As far as the press is concerned, he’s R-Patz, and you’re Suki Nobody.”

OUCH! Now, fans of the series are aware that the Gossip Girl revival has made a mark with their biting zingers and pop culture references. And it turns out not everyone is a fan of it, as the 29-year-old model slammed the dig in a since-deleted tweet on Friday. She wrote, according to The Daily Mail:

“Another day to be reminded that women can also be the patriarchy. Seeing critiques of patriarchy and sexism, then I get my name checked as somebody’s ‘nobody’ girlfriend. Make it make sense!”

Don’t worry, Suki, you are not the only one who has taken offense to GG’s jokes. Just ask, Olivia Jade!

In case you didn’t know, the couple has been linked since 2018 after they reportedly went on a date to see Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. While their relationship started “causal,” E! News reports that the pair have grown closers over the years and have even considered marriage. A source told the publication in October 2020:

“Rob and Suki have definitely discussed getting engaged but are in no rush. Suki is not pressuring him and they are both very committed to each other.”

Until then, we guess the two can wait and see if they get name checked again on the show! Reactions to the dig made on Gossip Girl, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments (below)!

US Olympic Fencers Wore Pink Masks To Protest Their Teammate Accused Of Sexual Misconduct

Home » Olympics » US Olympic Fencers Wore Pink Masks To Protest Their Teammate Accused Of Sexual Misconduct

Three men on the US fencing team took a stand against their teammate, who was accused of sexual misconduct by three different female fencers.

Before the start of the team épée competition at the Tokyo Olympics on Friday, Jake Hoyle, Curtis McDowald, and Yeisser Ramirez all chose to wear pink masks in protest to their teammate Alen Hadzic, who stood beside them sporting a black one. Fencing champion Ibtihaj Muhammad commended the three fencers for making a statement, tweeting:

“#TeamUSA men’s epee team wore pink masks for their opening match at the Olympics as a show of support for sexual assault victims. Kudos to the team for taking a stand. #BelieveWomen.”

Ramirez later reposted her tweet on his Instagram Story. Take a look (below):

Another unnamed fencer told BuzzFeed News that they wanted to stand in solidarity with sexual assault survivors, saying:

“They decided to make a statement that they were not standing for him being there. They wanted to make a distinction between themselves that they didn’t stand for sexual assault or abuse against women. These athletes wanted to have a voice where US Fencing and SafeSport failed.”

In case you didn’t know, the US Center for SafeSport temporarily suspended the 29-year-old athlete from fencing in June after three women came forward accusing him of sexual misconduct between 2013 and 2015. However, his Olympic eligibility was restored after an arbitrator overturned the suspension, claiming that his inclusion on the team wouldn’t be “detrimental to the reputation of the United States or his sport,” The New York Times reported. WTF???? Alen has since denied the accusations, which are currently under investigation.

In an interview with USA Today, an anonymous accuser slammed the decision to reverse his suspension, expressing:

“I think one case is enough for you to not be allowed to compete at the f**king Olympics. It really makes you question how far someone needs to go in order for them not to be able to compete.”

Still, the New Jersey native joined the team in Tokyo as an alternate. But due to the allegations, he was banned from the Olympic Village but allowed to compete under Team USA if another teammate became ill or injured. Hadzic did not participate in the match on Friday, but his presence on the team understandably sparked controversy with viewers.

Katie Thurston is not letting the haters burst her bubble!

Love it!!

While tons of commenters flooded the snapshot with positive messages, several people naturally took it upon themselves to voice their negative opinions in her comments section — and Katie understandably wasn’t here for it. One hater wrote under the photo:

“Someone did not find a husband.”

To which the reality star replied:

“Correct. There typically isn’t a wedding at the end.”

Then, another user asked:

“Why are you dressed like this??? Aren’t you supposed to be a respectable bachelorette a week away from a public proposal?”

And Katie simply commented back:

“I am me. No one owns me.”

In another response to one follower who wrote “sexy but I just feel this isn’t you,” the bank marketing manager replied with:

“Would you feel better if this was a bikini and I was laying in the sand? Because it’s no different.”

She has a point! And when someone else told her to “save that for the bedroom” because “young girls look up to her,” Thurston fired back with a similar sentiment, writing:

“Pretend I’m in a bikini on a sandy beach. It’s the same thing. Women can love and embrace their bodies however they’d like. Not be ashamed of them.”

Here, here!! Nothing wrong with owning your body!

This is not the first time that Katie has had to address followers for making offensive comments about her appearance. According to People, it apparently got so bad for the leading lady that she announced she would start blocking anyone who didn’t have anything nice to say, stating:

“Alright, I’m creating a new rule for myself. Anyone who wants to message me about my part, or my fashion or lack thereof, I’m just going to block you. I mean, I know a lot of you guys don’t have any hate about it. They’re just giving me friendly suggestions, but when you get them every day, it’s just like, God damn.”

Unfortunately, that tends to come with the price of fame. She continued:

“Look, I’m just like your basic f**king girl who somehow became a Bachelorette. But you know, I’ve said it before, and I’m going to say it again: It’s not about the wrapping paper, it’s the gift inside.”

Well said, gurl! Reactions to Katie’s expert clap backs to the haters? Let us know in the comments (below)!

Canadian Police Apologize For Throwing A Woman’s Burnt Body In The Dumpster After Mistaking Her For A Mannequin

Canadian Police Apologize For Throwing A Woman’s Burnt Body In The Dumpster After Mistaking Her For A Mannequin
Home » Viral: News » Canadian Police Apologize For Throwing A Woman’s Burnt Body In The Dumpster After Mistaking Her For A Mannequin

This is so beyond horrible…

Canadian law enforcement has publicly apologized for accidentally throwing a woman’s burned remains in a dumpster after mistaking her for a mannequin.

The incident happened on July 23, when a team of firefighters in Sherbrooke, Quebec, responded to a call that a mannequin caught on fire at a nearby factory. Sherbrooke Police Chief Danny McConnell told CBC Canada that the team believed they just found a silicon figure in a wooded area at the time:

“When they arrived, witnesses declared that someone had lit a silicone mannequin on fire.”

McConnell then revealed that the police and fire departments decided that the mannequin should be disposed in a “container” at the Sherbrooke Police Department. The “container” meant the dumpster behind the police station. However, they received a phone call four hours later from a man who reported that his wife went missing.

Authorities immediately tracked the woman’s cellphone to her vacant car, which was parked near the site of the fire. McConnell then said that’s when one police officer noted how the fire may have been linked to the woman’s disappearance. And when police grabbed the supposed mannequin out of the trash bin, they soon realized their awful mistake. The remains were positively identified as those of the missing woman. McConnell expressed to her loved ones in the Thursday press conference:

“We are obviously sorry about this situation and rest assured the family is being advised about every key detail of this investigation. Our hearts are with the family, her partner, and the kids in this very tragic situation.”

According to People, Sherbrooke Fire Chief Stéphane Simoneau also offered condolences to the woman’s family, revealing that first responders have been deeply impacted by the day’s events:

“I’m quite stunned by this news and I can say that my entire team, the entire department, as well as those who were there that day, are in shock. People were overcome by certain emotions, so we have to manage that situation in order to stabilize our teams, psychologically, and that’s what we’ve been doing.”

Anatomical pathologist Dr. Robert Nicholson explained to CBC that the authorities’ error wasn’t entirely “unreasonable” since severely burned people tend to lose all the water inside their bodies, which makes them appear different. He stated:

“So, a 150-pound person would be about 60 pounds. If somebody is a burn victim and most of the water is gone, then there is nothing but the results of the burn. It doesn’t look like a normal person and it doesn’t feel like a normal person.”

Police have not released the woman’s identity, but McConnell called her death was “suspicious” during the conference. An investigation into her death is still ongoing at this time.

We cannot imagine what this family must be going through after learning their loved one had been treated in that way. Our hearts go out to them during this difficult time.

Erika Jayne Investigator Wants To Use Her ‘Inconsistent Statements’ From RHOBH In Bankruptcy Case!

Erika Jayne Investigator Wants To Use Her ‘Inconsistent Statements’ From RHOBH In Bankruptcy Case!
Home » Real Housewives » Erika Jayne Investigator Wants To Use Her ‘Inconsistent Statements’ From RHOBH In Bankruptcy Case!

Things that Erika Jayne has said on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may come back and bite her in the ass!

According to Us Weekly, an investigator in the bankruptcy case of Tom Girardi and Jayne plans to use statements that the 50-year-old reality star has made on the show in court. In case you didn’t know, her estranged husband is in the midst of a lawsuit for allegedly embezzling settlement funds from the victim’s families in the Lion Air Flight 610 crash, which occurred in October 2018.

Related: SO SCARY! RHOBH Star Kyle Richards Hospitalized After Accidentally Walking Into A Beehive!

Jayne, who filed for divorce from the 82-year-old attorney in November, has continuously denied the allegations against both of them in the lawsuit — including that she and Girardi allegedly pocketed the cash to fund their lavish lifestyle. In addition, there have been accusations that the duo is using the divorce as a way of allegedly attempting to hide assets.

And as viewers may recall, Erika actually broke down in tears talking about the “sham” allegations being thrown around when opening up about her serious legal issues with cast members on RHOBH. She even recently told the housewives that she would “like to know where the money is” as well, saying:

“That lawsuit that says my divorce is a sham so I could hide assets — people want to believe that. I mean, I could have never predicted this f**king s**t. This is the end.”

Relive the dramatic moment (below):

Now, investigator Ronald N. Richards explained to Us Weekly on Friday that his team found “a lot of inconsistent statements and admissions made by the non-scripted actors that we’re putting together to use in court.” And when asked whether the attorney saw “a lot of inconsistencies with the story” on RHOBH about her lawsuit and financial woes, Richards said:

“That’s correct.”

Yikes! That’s definitely not a positive sign for The Pretty Mess singer!

The lawyer also added that his team is “going to take discovery from people that used to work for her.” Still, there is no set date as to when Jayne, her former employees, and co-stars could be called for questioning:

“There’s a lot of things we’re still trying to uncover. We are going to be deposing her (Erika) at some point, but I want to get all the documents first. What’s important right now is following the money.”

Oh yeah, this definitely could make things a tad tense for Erika! And one can only imagine how enraged the personality is over Ronald’s idea to use the show as part of the case. We mean, she did previously ask the court to remove him from the case, claiming he made “false and inflammatory social media posts and public statements” about her not participating in the investigation. The star even went as far as to call him a “clown ass” and “low budget” lawyer on Twitter so…

We can assume that she’ll not be happy about his motion at all. Reactions to this case update, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments (below)!

Johnny Depp Scores MAJOR Legal Win Against Amber Heard About Promised Divorce Settlement Donation!

Johnny Depp Scores MAJOR Legal Win Against Amber Heard About Promised Divorce Settlement Donation!
Home » Johnny Depp » Johnny Depp Scores MAJOR Legal Win Against Amber Heard About Promised Divorce Settlement Donation!

Johnny Depp is apparently having a very good day!

Why you may ask? Well, according to DailyMail.com, the 57-year-old actor earned a huge win in his court battle with ex-wife Amber Heard — all thanks to Judge Arthur Engoron, who granted 23 out of his 24 requests.

This basically means that the American Civil Liberties Union must cough up the paperwork Johnny’s legal team has been demanding — the documents that supposedly prove the Aquaman actress stuck to her word and donated part of the $7 million from their divorce settlement to them.

As we’ve reported, Heard previously insisted that she did not want her former husband’s money and decided to donate the cash from their split to both the ACLU and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

But attorneys for Depp suspect the entire kindhearted gesture was actually made possible by her billionaire ex Elon Musk — and that she pocketed the money! He has spent a very long time trying to track down where the dough went, especially after docs from the Children’s Hospital seemed to prove they were still waiting on their money. Now, it appears the Sweeney Todd star has finally become one step closer to potentially proving his case.

The only thing Engoron denied a request for was any documents relating to Amber’s role as a “brand ambassador” for the organization, DailyMail.com reported. Still, the judge decided that Depp “has satisfied the initial burden of stating the circumstances of reasons underlying the subpoena… the ACLU has failed to demonstrate that the information sought it utterly irrelevant to the action.” He then concluded:

“Thus, for the reasons stated herein, the petition is granted and denied in part and respondents are ordered to comply with all subpoenas with the exception of… documents pertaining to Ms. Heard’s role as a brand ambassador for the ACLU.”

Wow!

Time’s Up, Disney! Women’s Groups Release Joint Statement Bashing ‘Gendered’ Attack On Scarlett Johansson!

Time’s Up, Disney! Women’s Groups Release Joint Statement Bashing ‘Gendered’ Attack On Scarlett Johansson!
Home » Scarlett Johansson » Time’s Up, Disney! Women’s Groups Release Joint Statement Bashing ‘Gendered’ Attack On Scarlett Johansson!

Scarlett Johansson suing Disney — biting the hand that has been feeding her career for the past decade — was a surprise. But the way the corporation responded was the real shocker.

In case you missed it, ScarJo is suing Disney for breach of contract over the simultaneous streaming home release of Black Widow. According to her legal filing, her contract promised an exclusively theatrical run, and her total pay was based on the box office performance. Because the distributor didn’t hold up their side — instead also streaming the film as a $30 rental on Disney+ — she says they cost her around $50 million in bonuses.

Related: Emma Stone May Be The Next To Sue

After news of the lawsuit dropped, the Mouse House went right for the jugular — which, for a celeb, is bad PR. In a statement that made us do a double take, they accused the Avengers Endgame star of being some kind of ice queen who didn’t care there was a pandemic. They wrote:

“There is no merit whatsoever to this filing. The lawsuit is especially sad and distressing in its callous disregard for the horrific and prolonged global effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

They also made a point of playing up the salary she had already made on the film — saying streaming would make her more “on top of the $20M she has received to date.” We don’t know about you, but we completely read that as an implication she was being greedy — as in, what, $20 mil isn’t enough??

We weren’t the only ones who thought Disney went too far, past the law and straight into personal attack.

Multiple women’s groups have partnered up to defend ScarJo, and more to the point women in general, from these kinds of personal attacks. In a joint statement, Time’s UpReFrame, and Women In Film stated:

“While we take no position on the business issues in the litigation between Scarlett Johansson and the Walt Disney Company, we stand firmly against Disney’s recent statement which attempts to characterize Johansson as insensitive or selfish for defending her contractual business rights.”

Same! We do NOT pretend to know what’s going on with contract law — but where we do have an advanced degree is in celebrity feuds, and these were some fighting words.

Related: ScarJo’s Agent Also Blasted The Statement

The statement further accused Disney of sexism, saying:

“This gendered character attack has no place in a business dispute and contributes to an environment in which women and girls are perceived as less able than men to protect their own interests without facing ad hominem criticism.”

Inneresting. While they never specifically mention anything related to her gender, making her look unreasonable — when all she’s doing is taking legal action to protect her paycheck — is a pretty classic sexist move.

The personal attack in general is very strange for this kind of legal battle. You usually only see this kind of thing in a nasty divorce. The fact alone they decided to make it personal says quite a bit.

Do YOU think Disney’s statement was a “gendered” attack??
