Tyrese found his own Amal Clooney because his mysterious new wife has plenty of degrees and money of her own ... TMZ has learned. A source close to the couple tells us the missus' name is Samantha Lee -- a New Jersey native who got a Master's degree in social work at the University of Georgia. We're told she's put her education to work on serious issues -- fighting sex and human trafficking and counseling for inmates. She's also handled cases for the Division of Family and Children Services in GA. She's accomplished and well-paid -- we're told Samantha lives comfortably on a hefty salary. Sources close to the couple -- who secretly tied the knot on Valentine's Day -- say they met after Tyrese posted an open letter in 2015 to his "wife of the future." Samantha filled that slot after they met through mutual friends. Haters went after Tyrese for referring to Samantha as his "black queen." Not that it matters, but her heritage is Ecuadorian, Jamaican ... and African-American. So, a … [Read more...] about Tyrese’s New Wife Has Master’s Degree, Makes Six Figures

A review of “Smell Ya Later,” this week’s Killing Eve, coming up just as soon as I look like someone stuck a mustache on some fudge… “Together again. Gee, it’s good to be together again. I just can’t imagine that you’ve ever been gone. It’s not starting over. It’s just going on.” No, this is not a passage from “Smell Ya Later,” nor from any other Killing Eve episode to date. Yet quoting song lyrics from The Muppets Take Manhattan seems the most logical way to begin a discussion of the best Season Two episode so far, and of the challenges the series will continue dealing with the longer it’s around. ’Cause, as Fozzie Bear says, no feeling feels like that feeling: together again! Our two leads have led largely separate lives throughout the season’s previous four installments. Villanelle was busy getting patched up from her stab wound, and then getting out from under the thumb of The 12. Eve … [Read more...] about ‘Killing Eve’ Recap: Babes in the Woods
Hurricane Michael, the third most intense storm on record to make landfall in the U.S., has caused widespread destruction, turning places like Mexico Beach, Florida, into a hellscape of broken homes and overturned cars. It will be a while before we learn the full extent of the damage — and the human suffering and death — caused by the storm’s 155 mph winds and the 14-foot storm surge that swamped the coastline. Bad as the hurricane was, imagine the damage and destruction if that storm surge had been 15 feet or so higher. And if instead of receding, that wall of water never went away. That is what we could be facing in the not-so-distant future if we don’t dramatically cut fossil-fuel pollution. If that sounds alarmist, watch this short video. In it, you’ll see a scientist named Richard Alley in a Skype discussion with students at Bard College, as well as with Eban Goodstein, director of the Graduate Programs in Sustainability at Bard. It would be just … [Read more...] about What’s Another Way to Say ‘We’re F-cked’?
The United States, historically the largest contributor to global warming, will withdraw from the non-binding Paris Climate Agreement, President Trump announced Thursday. The United States formally signed onto the agreement in September 2016. “The Paris Agreement alone won’t solve the climate crisis,” President Obama said at the time, “but it does establish an enduring framework that enables countries to ratchet down their carbon emissions over time, and to set more ambitious targets as technology advances. That means full implementation of this agreement will help delay or avoid some of the worst consequences of climate change, and pave the way for more progress in the coming years.” In his remarks Thursday, delivered from the White House Rose Garden, Trump said the United States will withdraw from the treaty, but will “begin negotiations to re-enter either the Paris accord, or a really, entirely new transaction.” In advance of Trump’s … [Read more...] about Watch Trump’s ‘Reckless’ Announcement on U.S. Pulling Out of Paris Climate Accord
The producers of the seventh Fast and Furious movie have decided to “retire” Paul Walker’s character, Brian O’Conner, rather than kill him off. Sources close to the film told The Hollywood Reporter that the studio has found a way to use the footage it shot of Walker, before the actor’s death in a car accident last year, in a way that will satisfy the series’ fans. Relive Paul Walker’s 11 Best Roles In the weeks following Walker’s death, a team consisting of director James Wan, writer Chris Morgan and the studio’s lead exec on the series, Jeffrey Kirschenbaum, watched the scenes it had shot that featured Walker. They then modified the existing script so the O’Conner character, which has been a part of all but one the series’ installments, could be part of the story but also bow out gracefully so the franchise could continue. The changes will require Wan to film extra scenes that are yet to be written. Last month, the … [Read more...] about Paul Walker’s ‘Fast and Furious’ Character Won’t Be Killed Off
