Jenna Dewan ‘blindsided’ by Channing Tatum and Jessie J’s relationship, she says

Jenna Dewan had no idea that her ex-husband Channing Tatum had moved on until his relationship with Jessie J made headlines, she said.

In the actress’ new book, “Gracefully You: How to Live Your Best Life Every Day,” she revealed that she “felt blindsided’ when she learned about Tatum’s relationship with the British singer.

Dewan, 38, and Tatum, 39, announced their split in April 2018. In October that year, Tatum and Jessie J entered a high-profile relationship.

JENNA DEWAN TELLS JOHN CENA SHE’S ‘HOOKED’ ON PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING

“I was learning things about my ex most people wouldn’t have to face — and over the internet, as it was happening,” Dewan wrote in her book. E! News published an excerpt of the book on Thursday.

Dewan said she was alone on a plane when she heard the news, and that “choosing grace as I learned everything about my personal situation along with the rest of the world was really difficult.”

In the excerpt, Dewan also discussed the days following her split, which occurred the night before she began filming the second season of “World of Dance.”

“In the beginning of my separation, it felt as though I were in a dark closet, desperately trying to find the light or the way out,” she said. “I was in a state of shock. One week I’d be doing really well and the next I was slammed with a whole new slew of emotions. The rumor mill was churning out story after story. There were many times I hid under the covers, wondering what was next. The pain hit me like a tumbling avalanche. I was completely overcome with fear and sadness. It took many moments of sitting alone with my grief to force me into surrendering to my roller coaster of a situation.”

EXES CHANNING TATUM AND JENNA DEWAN REUNITE FOR HALLOWEEN

In November 2018, Jessie J, 31, took to Instagram to slam commenters that compared her appearance to that of Dewan.

Shortly after, Dewan tweeted her support for Jessie J’s statement and said it was a “beautiful message.”

JENNA DEWAN TO HOST FORTHCOMING DATING SHOW ‘FLIRTY DANCING’

Tatum isn’t the only one to find happiness after the split, as Dewan is now expecting a child with her boyfriend Steve Kazee.

“When I was ready, I started dating someone amazing,” she wrote in her book. “It was this cosmically great thing where we circled back around each other after a moment of instant recognition years ago.”

It was also recently announced that Dewan would be hosting a new dating-dance competition hybrid television show called “Flirty Dancing.” The show will teach partial dance routines to participants, who will then meet their partners to perform the routine in its entirety.

CNN White House correspondent and political analyst April Ryan pulled out as moderator of a campaign event for 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg on Friday after receiving backlash for being on the bill for what turned out to be a fundraiser.

As soon as critics pointed out that Ryan was participating in a fundraiser, Ryan clarified that she would not be participating.

“I agreed to interview Pete Buttigieg this weekend — the campaign was not clear that the venue would be a fundraiser,” Ryan tweeted. “We’ll be rescheduling the interview to a more appropriate time/place. Looking forward to asking him the tough questions the [American Urban Radio Network] audience wants answers to.”

What was billed as a “grassroots event” was slated to be a one-on-one sit-down between the journalist and the South Bend, Ind. mayor. It was scheduled for Saturday in Washington, D.C. Tickets ranged from $15 to $500.

Ryan, who is an outspoken critic of President Trump, recently posted about her relationship with Buttigieg, revealing he invited her as his guest to the Congressional Black Caucus dinner.

“Thank you @PeteButtigieg for inviting me to be your guest at the CBC Dinner,” Ryan said. “The last time I was invited to the dinner by a presidential candidate was @barackobama. You know what happened after that!”

Michael Moore endorses Bernie Sanders: ‘He isn’t afraid to say capitalism is the problem’

Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., for president on Friday. He said Sanders isn’t “afraid” to say that capitalism is the problem.

Moore revealed on MSNBC that he will make a formal appearance at a Sanders campaign rally over the weekend. 

“Why me for Bernie? Because Bernie understands that capitalism and the greedy form of capitalism, especially that we have now, is at the core of so many of the problems that we’re talking about. And he’s not afraid to come out and just say that — that it’s the problem,” Moore said, adding that he thinks Bernie could beat President Trump.

MICHAEL MOORE WARNS DEMS ‘PROFESSIONAL POLITICIAN’ CAN’T BEAT TRUMP: ‘I LOVE JOE BIDEN… BUT WE GOTTA WIN’

The Oscar-winning filmmaker said he endorsed Sanders “30 years ago” when he ran for Congress, adding that the politician’s two other major backers at the time were the founders of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream.

Last month, the “Fahrenheit 9/11” director suggested that one of Sanders’ rivals, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass, doesn’t believe it when she calls herself a “capitalist,” a label she has repeatedly given herself.

Kamala Harris aide mocked for sharing doctored Trump-Pelosi photo, later deletes tweet

A top aide for 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., was widely mocked for sharing a photoshopped image of a White House photo that went viral this week, which he later deleted.

Harris’s national press secretary Ian Sams tweeted out his own version of the image showing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., offering a fiery reaction to President Trump across the table — but Sams’ image showed his candidate as the president instead.

“Time for an upgrade,” Sams captioned the tweet.

The tweet, which has since been deleted, opened a floodgate of criticism, many questioning the logic behind the altered image.

“So you’re saying Kamala will do a better job implementing Trump’s agenda than Trump? You thought through this well,” Washington Examiner’s Siraj Hashmi said.

“I can’t wait until Nancy Pelosi is berating my boss!'” former 2020 presidential candidate Mike Gravel said.

Prince Harry says mom Princess Diana’s death is a ‘wound that festers’

Princess Diana died 22 years ago, but much of that pain is still fresh for Prince Harry, who was only 12 years old at the time.

In the documentary “Harry & Meghan: An African Journey,” Prince Harry, now 35, reflected on his mother and the work she did. Diana passed away in 1997 from injuries she sustained in a Paris car crash while being chased by paparazzi. She was 36.

Journalist Tom Bradby asked Harry whether he’s at peace, or if he feels that Diana’s loss is still a festering wound.

“I think probably a wound that festers,” Harry said. “I think being part of this family, in this role, in this job, every single time I see a camera, every single time I hear a click, every single time I see a flash, it takes me straight back, so in that respect it’s the worst reminder of her life as opposed to the best.”

“Being here now 22 years later trying to finish what she started will be incredibly emotional, but everything that I do reminds me of her,” the Duke of Sussex said. “But as I said, with the role, with the job, with the sort of pressures that come with that, I get reminded of the bad stuff, unfortunately.”

Harry also compared the treatment of the Dutchess of Sussex, 38, by tabloids to that of his mother, calling them a “ruthless campaign.”

Despite Instagram followers claiming she’s a “fake Christian” for celebrating Halloween, Hailey Bieber is planning on dressing up and eating as much candy as she wants.

Bieber came under fire from her Christian fans for celebrating the holiday, which is skipped by some over the belief that it’s a pagan practice.

In a post to her Instagram Story, Bieber shared her thoughts on why her upcoming celebrations are perfectly appropriate.

“I’m a Christian,” the 22-year-old model’s post read, Yahoo Entertainment reported. “Do you have any idea what that means historically? It means I redefine everything in culture. Pagan Feast of Winter Solstice? Oh, that’s now JESUS BIRTHDAY. Pagan Feast of Spring Planting? Oh that’s now EASTER WEEKEND. Pagan Celtic Festival involving dressing up and warding off evil spirits?

“Oh now it’s All Saints Day and we celebrate the victorious church that has overcome the VICTORIOUS CHURCH THAT HAS OVERCOME THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB!!! CANDY PLEASE!!!”

HAILEY BIEBER CALLED ‘FAKE CHRISTIAN’ FOR CELEBRATING HALLOWEEN — HERE’S HOW SHE RESPONDED

Bieber went on to say that she is “not afraid of the world.”

“I’m not afraid of any devil or demon or incantation,” she said. “They are terrified of me. Halloween is now MY HOLIDAY and I am claiming all the candy for the glory of God and the celebration of the saints. What now? I’ll dress up however I like! My favorite characters, pop culture stuff, whatever. It’s my party and you’re invited. I’m alive today and a saint tomorrow. Give me candy.”

Turkey-Syria cease-fire is ‘not a success,’ Republican lawmaker says

Westlake Legal Group 84e3d3bf-ENC3_132159027953840000 Turkey-Syria cease-fire is 'not a success,' Republican lawmaker says fox-news/world/world-regions/turkey fox-news/world/conflicts/syria fox-news/us/military fox-news/shows/your-world fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/mike-pence fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz c7cac4fd-8a99-53be-b5f9-fb8f787d1f9d article

House Foreign Affairs Committee member Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., said the Turkey-Syria cease-fire amid a U.S. troop pullout in Syria is not a success.

Kinzinger, an Air Force veteran of the Iraq War, told Neil Cavuto Friday on “Your World” that the cease-fire’s terms essentially allow Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to reach his goal in the region.

“First off, time will tell on the cease-fire,” he said. “Keep in mind, by the time this expires, Erdogan and [Russian President Vladimir] Putin are meeting, so the question is are they going to have a meeting and carve up Syria for themselves? A cease-fire isn’t success — it’s basically saying ‘we’re going to take a pause.'”

CNN’S STAND-ALONE TURKISH NETWORK APPEARS TO CONTRADICT AMERICAN COVERAGE OF TURKEY’S SYRIA INVASION

Kinzinger said the 120-hour pause in fighting allows the Kurdish population to withdraw from northern Syria, which he said is what Erdogan wanted all along.

“The problem was we never needed to be here,” he said.

More from Media

“And, evident by the fact we had to bomb our own military base, it was a hasty withdrawal,” Kinzinger said.

On “Your World,” the Illinois Republican said he believed the U.S. military could not remain in Syria forever, but that Trump’s withdrawal was flawed.

“It’s another thing to just announce it on Twitter and say you’re ending an endless war, when this is the exact kind of map we need to use to win wars with allies in the future without heavy American involvement,” he said.

“Nobody believes that Turkey would have attacked U.S. troops,” he added, calling the entire situation “unfortunate.”

Betsy DeVos blasts Democrats’ ‘crazy’ plans to eliminate student loan debt

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6096027560001_6096014680001-vs Betsy DeVos blasts Democrats' 'crazy' plans to eliminate student loan debt fox-news/us/education/teachers fox-news/us/education/college fox-news/politics/finance fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/politics/executive/cabinet fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox-news/health/education fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 8e0f9ca9-8113-5bf0-a2fd-78ebfab1f14a

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos panned Democratic proposals to eliminate student loan debt, calling them a “federal takeover of higher education.”

DeVos appeared on “Special Report” on Friday and said if the federal government forgives college loan debt, the burden would be shifted to those Americans who opted not to go to college.

“Their proposals are crazy,” she said, saying some could cost into the trillions of dollars.

“Who do they think is actually going to pay for these? It’s going to be two of the three Americans that aren’t going to college paying for the one out of three that do,” DeVos said. “Let’s look at this for what it really is: A federal takeover of higher education.”

2020 DEMS MAKING BIG, COSTLY PROMISES ON STUDENT LOAN FORGIVENESS

On the Democratic primary ballot, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., released a plan in June that calls for all student debt to be eliminated regardless of family income level, and that students from families with incomes of $25,000 or less would have their college costs covered.

The plan would be paid for with a tax on stock trades, bonds, derivatives and other types of investments. The Vermont lawmaker called the plan “a revolutionary proposal.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said she plans to cancel $50,000 in student debt for each person with household incomes under $100,000.

FLORIDA DEM PROPOSES BILL REQUIRING BIBLE COURSES, ALLOWING PRAYER IN SCHOOLS

On “Special Report,” DeVos, 61, said fixing the American education system is the most important issue for the nation’s future.

“We are not preparing students today,” said claimed. “We need to see education in the future being really engaging, personal, relevant — and every student able to achieve their fullest potential.”

More from Media

DeVos said American education scores are nowhere near those of other nations.

“Two out of three eighth-graders can’t read or write at their grade level,” she said.

DeVos also rejected a claim by Randi Weingarten of the American Federation of Teachers, who claimed President Trump is not properly supporting the public education system.

“The Trump administration is not doing anything on public education,” Weingarten said. “We have to make sure [public schools] are well-funded and we have to make sure that they have the resources they need so that every child has a shot in public school.”

DeVos said people can’t do “the same thing over and over again and [be] expecting different results.”

“The pivot that we need to make is a dramatic one,” she said. “It is to really allow for education freedom — for parents and students to find the right fit to prepare them for their futures.”

Rep. Ken Buck: Trump impeachment inquiry deeply flawed and unfair – Hearings should be public

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6095745209001_6095746113001-vs Rep. Ken Buck: Trump impeachment inquiry deeply flawed and unfair – Hearings should be public Rep.

Until recently, the House Intelligence Committee occupied a unique space in Congress by avoiding partisanship and open acrimony. Members selected to sit on the committee were given the trust of overseeing our most secretive programs, access to the most classified information, and the responsibility of ensuring this information does not fall into the wrong hands.

The selection process for membership and the committee rules are also unique. The speaker of the House and the minority leader personally interview and select members. The committee meets behind closed doors and its deliberations are rarely discussed in public.

The Intelligence Committee is the last committee that should conduct an impeachment proceeding. Impeachment should be based on a fair process. Fairness requires open proceedings so that the public can evaluate the demeanor and credibility of each witness.

HOUSE REPUBLICANS BLAST DEMS FOR WITHHOLDING IMPEACHMENT DOCS, DEMAND ACCESS TO RECORDS

More from Opinion

Using secretive proceedings to investigate the president invites distrust that will further divide our country.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has weaponized the Intelligence Committee. In the process, she has ruined the last vestige of bipartisan cooperation on Capitol Hill. Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is the least likely member to lead a credible investigation. He has consistently exploited the trust of his position for partisan purposes.

Schiff said this year that “there’s clear evidence on the issue of collusion” between the Trump election campaign and Russia in the 2016 presidential election. Last year, Schiff said President Trump “may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time.”

SCHIFF ADMITS HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ‘MUCH MORE CLEAR’ ABOUT CONTACT WITH WHISTLEBLOWER

Of course, the American people now know that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation concluded there was no collusion between Trump or his campaign and Russia.

Shortly after the existence of an intelligence whistleblower complaint that raised concerns about a phone call between President Trump and the president of Ukraine became public, Schiff stated that neither he nor his staff had contact with the whistleblower prior to the filing of the complaint.

But we now know that Schiff’s staff had previously interviewed the whistleblower. This has caused many to question whether Schiff’s staff coached the whistleblower.

Schiff is now engaged in impeachment hearings, questioning witnesses behind closed doors. In a total lack of transparency – and contrary to every prior instance involving presidential impeachment – this process is occurring outside of the full view of the American people.

Democrats are selectively disseminating information from these closed-door proceedings to unfairly characterize President Trump’s actions. This is occurring before witness transcripts can be released to the public to put these statements in proper context.

The Intelligence Committee’s special status in Congress enabling it to operate outside of public scrutiny was never meant to be used to manipulate public opinion.

The American people deserve better. If Democrats want to engage in a legitimate impeachment inquiry, the House should follow precedent and immediately hold a vote to authorize an inquiry.

The investigation should allow the president’s counsel to assert relevant privileges, encourage the minority to call witnesses, and protect due process by being fully transparent and open to the public.

Anything less will prove the partisan nature of this impeachment and will do great damage to the integrity of the Intelligence Committee and America’s long-term national security interests.

Former Bill Clinton adviser: ‘Fracture, fissure and division’ ahead for Democratic Party

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano spoke to Doug Schoen, who is a former adviser to President Bill Clinton and a Fox News contributor, about the current state of the Democratic Party.

“When I grew up and you grew up, there was a muscular, strong foreign policy, pro-civil rights, pro-capitalist wing of the [Democratic] party that I proudly identify with, but that wing of the party is in recession now — literally and metaphorically,” Schoen said on Fox Nation’s “Liberty Files with Judge Andrew Napolitano.”

Schoen warned that the Democratic Party in 2020 is due for a clash between the traditional wing and a growing far-left contingent.

“I think it’s looking like it’s going in that direction of fracture, fissure and division. I think the upper hand in the party is now with the left, sadly, and I wish it were something else,” he said.

“Even JFK himself, maybe even LBJ, they wouldn’t recognize the modern Democratic Party,” Napolitano said.

“No, they wouldn’t,” Schoen agreed. “I would say to your listeners, particularly those who are Democrats or were Democrats: watch the 1961 inaugural address of John F. Kennedy. It will literally bring tears to your eyes and it is completely at variance with and different from anything this current crop of Democrats are talking about.”

“What is the appeal of socialism — clearly, to these young people?” the judge asked. “It’s alien to our culture. It’s absent from our history. All the sudden, it seems to be everywhere.”

Schoen said that the ideology appeals to people as a solution to real problems in American society.

“There are high student loans, high housing costs, high health care costs, and socialism provides an answer, albeit not a good one. But it basically says it’s not your fault, it’s their fault, their fault being the government, older people, however you want to parse it, and redistribution becomes a solution that ameliorates the problems seemingly and avoids any blame for younger people for their circumstances,” he said.
