Jane Seymour says she had ‘no room for underwear’ in silver SAG Awards gown

Jane Seymour is aging in reverse.

The 68-year-old actress looked stunning on the red carpet at the 2020 SAG Awards on Sunday night in Los Angeles. She showed off her slim figure in a silver metallic gown which featured a cowl neckline and spaghetti straps.

While making her way down the carpet, she spoke with “Access Hollywood” about getting ready for the event. Seymour admitted she wasn’t wearing any underwear beneath her gown. “No room for underwear!” she laughed.

JANE SEYMOUR, 68, EXPLAINS HOW SHE STAYS IN SHAPE: ‘I’M NOT TRYING TO BE YOUNGER THAN WHO I AM’

Seymour also spoke about her beauty routine and how she maintains a healthy lifestyle.

“I decided 23 days ago that I was going to get super healthy, and I lost 12 pounds and I went back to how I used to be when I was 17,” she explained. “I did that intermittent fasting. I eat healthy anyway and I quit drinking.”

“I’m about to be 69 and I wanted to be as good and natural a 69-year-old as I could be,” she added.

The Kominsky Method” star previously spoke about what it’s like dating in her 60s.

“I kind of had a little bit of experience in that because I found myself single six years ago and I said to my daughter, ‘What am I going to do? I can’t date, I wouldn’t know what to do. How does this work?'” Seymour told Closer Weekly.

JANE SEYMOUR, 68, SAYS ‘NOWADAYS NOT EVERY DESIGNER WILL DRESS SOMEONE MY AGE’

Seymour has been married four times. Her last marriage to James Keach ended in 2015 after more than two decades together. The former Bond girl and “Dr. Quinn” icon said it’s been a while since she hit up the dating scene.

“It had been 25 years,” she explained. “I mean, Tinder wasn’t going to happen. You know, the whole idea of you know that age… It’s like, well, my gosh, first day, what did we do? I mean, how many dates do we have before you kiss? And yeah, and then? And then what do you do about children and grandchildren?”

Seymour is reportedly in a relationship with David Green, a man she met 40 years ago.

“I just think it’s pretty remarkable, actually, because most women my age do not find someone else,” Seymour said to Us Weekly at the time. “If they do, they usually find a much younger man, and it’s an uneven relationship.”

“I think it’s really wonderful I found a contemporary, someone I knew 40 years ago,” she continued. “We both had lives, and now we found one another, and we have another chance.”

However, Seymour isn’t in a hurry to walk down the aisle anytime soon. “I’m just enjoying life and not tying knots,” she said. “I don’t think knots work for me. No. I’m keeping my heart open.”

Trump blasts Democrats over impeachment witnesses, says he received ‘ZERO’ fairness in House inquiry

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6124671222001_6124669350001-vs Trump blasts Democrats over impeachment witnesses, says he received 'ZERO' fairness in House inquiry fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox news fnc/politics fnc Brooke Singman article 1493b2f9-a6bf-5ead-abbe-14c67102a234

President Trump on Monday blasted congressional Democrats for “zero fairness” in their bid to impeach him just one day before the Senate trial officially begins.

“They didn’t want John Bolton and others in the House. They were in too much of a rush. Now they want them all in the Senate. Not supposed to be that way!” Trump tweeted Monday, referring to Democrat-sought witnesses like Bolton, his ex-national security adviser.

“Cryin’ Chuck Schumer is now asking for ‘fairness,’ when he and the Democrat House members worked together to make sure I got ZERO fairness in the House,” he continued. “So, what else is new?”

The president’s tweet comes just hours after Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., vowed to “force votes on witnesses and documents” in the impeachment trial, which is slated to begin Tuesday.

“We Democrats aim to get the truth,” Schumer said. “Make no mistake about it, we will force votes on witnesses and documents, and it will be up to four Republicans to side with the Constitution, to side with our democracy, to side with the rule of law, and not side, in blind obeisance, to President Trump and his desire to suppress the truth. Because, in my judgment, he probably thinks he’s guilty.”

DEMOCRATS CLASH WITH GOP OVER PROSPECT OF CALLING HUNTER BIDEN IN IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

The topic of witnesses has been at issue since the House passed the articles of impeachment—charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress– in mid-December. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had been holding onto the articles in a bid to extract favorable terms for the trial, including a commitment from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to call witnesses, but she ended her delay last week after he made it clear he was not willing to negotiate.

McConnell has repeatedly said that the resolution to govern the impeachment trial in the Senate would mirror the one used for then-President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial in 1999. That resolution will set a time frame for the trial to begin, with the opportunity for lawmakers to determine how to proceed on potential witness testimony and additional documents later, after both the president’s defense and the prosecution make their opening statements.

Schumer, though, suggested McConnell was “being so secretive about his proposal” to call witnesses, and that Trump was “afraid of the truth.”

As for possible witnesses, Democrats have called for testimony from Bolton for weeks. Bolton, earlier this month, signaled that he would be open to testifying, and would comply with the request, should he receive a congressional subpoena.

Republicans, though, have warned of “witness reciprocity,” which would mean that GOP senators could request testimony from their own witnesses in exchange for Democrat-sought witness testimony.

Republicans have not committed to doing so, but many have floated calling former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, as a witness.

Hunter emerged as a central figure in the Ukraine controversy due to his business dealings.

SCHUMER: DEMS WILL ‘FORCE VOTES ON WITNESSES AND DOCUMENTS’ IN TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

The inquiry began when a whistleblower reported that Trump had pushed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to launch an investigation into the Biden family’s dealings in Ukraine—specifically, why Joe Biden pressured former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to fire a top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings, where Hunter held a lucrative role on the board, bringing in a reported $50,000 per month.

House Republicans noted that in testimony from former State Department official George Kent, he raised concerns about “the appearance of a conflict of interest stemming from Mr. Biden’s position on Burisma’s board.”

At the time, the former vice president was running U.S.-Ukraine policy under former President Barack Obama.

Chinese theme park sparks international backlash after forcing pig to bungee jump

A Chinese theme park is getting substantial international backlash after a pig was tied up and forced to bungee jump from a 220-foot-plus platform as part of a publicity stunt for the park’s newest attraction.

WOMAN HAS MELTDOWN AT THEME PARK AFTER GETTING TRICKED INTO RIDING FERRIS WHEEL

Video footage taken at Meixin Red Wine Town theme park in Chongqing shows the pig wearing a cape and being pushed off the 223-foot-high tower while its front and back feet are bound. The 165-pound pig’s squeals can reportedly be heard as it bungees up and down over a body of water below. In other videos, outlets have claimed onlookers can be heard cheering and laughing.

Additional footage shared by China’s The Paper shows workers hauling the pig up to the top of the platform, and recovering it afterward. (Warning: The clip contains footage some viewers may find difficult to watch.)

The pig was transported to a slaughterhouse following the stunt, BBC reported.

The stunt was reportedly staged to celebrate the opening of the new bungee jump attraction at the theme park.

Once the video was shared on social media, the theme park faced swift backlash and criticism for its treatment of the animal.

“What kind of country in 2020 has absolutely no animal rights at all. Sick f—ers — filming a pig squeal in fear until it passes out,” one woman tweeted.

PETA issued a statement to Fox News also criticizing the park’s stunt.

“This is cruelty to animals at its worst. A bungee jump is a scary experience even for consenting humans—just imagine the outright terror of being forcibly strung up by your legs and thrown from a high platform. That’s the treatment that this pig received, all for a cheap laugh. Well, guess what? No one’s laughing.

“Pigs experience pain and fear, just as we do, and this kind of disgusting PR stunt should be illegal. The theme park deserves every shred of the backlash it’s receiving online, and the Chinese public’s angry response should be a wake-up call to China’s policymakers that they must implement animal protection laws immediately,” the statement read.

The theme park later issued an apology for its marketing ploy, BBC reported.

“We sincerely accept netizens’ criticism and advice and apologize to the public,” the statement read. “We will improve [our] marketing of the tourist site, to provide tourists with better services.”

Denver police officer accused of sexually assaulting woman he met during investigation

A Denver police officer has been arrested after a woman he met during an investigation last month accused him of sexual assault, authorities said Saturday.

Johnny Leon-Alvarez, 29, was booked at the Denver Detention Center in the investigation of a sexual assault reported early Friday and was suspended without pay, the Denver Police Department said in a statement. He has been a Denver police officer since 2018.

MISSOURI COP ACCUSED OF MANSLAUGHTER AFTER KILLING GIRL, 4, IN ON-DUTY ACCIDENT

An arrest affidavit said Leon-Alvarez first met the 27-year-old victim last month when he and other officers responded to a domestic call at her home, FOX31 Denver reported. The woman told police she called “regarding an argument she had with her significant other.”

Leon-Alvarez kept in touch with the woman following the call, according to local media that obtained the affidavit.

“One of the officers who responded began texting her afterward to check on her,” the Denver Post reported, citing the affidavit. “Over time the (texts) became flirty, until the previous evening (Thursday) when they arranged to go on a date.”

The woman said in her statement that they had a “couple of shots and a couple of beers” before Leon-Alvarez drove her home just after midnight on Friday. She said she does not remember how Leon-Alvarez got into her house, where she told him “no” and tried to push him off of her.

The roommate corroborated the woman’s report, saying she heard the woman say “no” and “please stop” several times, according to the affidavit.

Meghan Markle is only royal family member happy with ‘Megxit’ deal: royal expert

A royal expert claims that Meghan Markle is the only one in the royal family who isn’t upset about her and husband Prince Harry’s decision to step back from their senior royal duties and lose their HRH titles.

Arthur Edwards, a photographer who has been on more than 200 royal tours across 120 countries sat down Monday on ITV’s “This Morning” to discuss the historical “Megxit” in the wake of Prince Harry’s somber speech on Sunday.

PRINCE HARRY, MEGHAN MARKLE WILL NO LONGER USE ROYAL TITLES, QUEEN AND BUCKINGHAM PALACE ANNOUNCE

According to The Daily Mail, Edwards noted that Markle “seems to be having a good time” with everything while she awaits Harry’s arrival in Canada with baby Archie.

“’From that speech last night, Harry’s sadness came over,” Edwards told the hosts. “Harry’s sad, the Queen’s sad, Prince of Wales is sad, I’m sad, but they’re still going ahead with it. The only person that doesn’t seem to be sad and seems to be having a good time is Meghan, and I think she has driven this.”

He added: “And I think Harry, I think he is sad, I don’t think he really wants to go. I mean, what’s he going to do there? He’s not a showbiz person, he’s not a media star like that.”

The royal expert’s comments came in response to Prince Harry who, on Sunday, publicly addressed his decision to “step back” from royal life, saying he wanted to continue supporting Queen Elizabeth without public funding, but “unfortunately, that wasn’t possible.”

MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY EXPECTED TO STILL RECEIVE FUNDS FROM PRINCE CHARLES: REPORT

In a speech given at a dinner for supporters of the Sentebale charity in London, the Prince addressed why he and his wife, Meghan Markle, chose to relinquish their “royal highness” titles and move part-time to Canada.

“Before I begin, I must say that I can only imagine what you may have heard, or perhaps read, over the past few weeks,” Harry said. “So, I want you to hear the truth from me — as much as I can share, not as a prince or a duke, but as Harry, the same person that many of you have watched grow up over the past 35 years, but now with a clearer perspective.

“The U.K. is my home and a place that I love. That will never change,” he continued. “I have grown up feeling supported by so many of you, and I watched as you welcomed Meghan with open arms, as you saw the love and happiness that I had hoped for all my life. Finally, the second son of Diana got hitched, hooray!”

Harry then stressed that he and Markle still held the same values, and she’s still the same woman he’s loved. He also recounted the excitement they felt when they began their journey together, and addressed the “great sadness” he feels at the situation becoming so dire.

The speech came after the announcement that Harry and Markle will no longer be referred to as “royal highness” and will pay back the $3.1 million they used to renovate their home, Frogmore Cottage, following their historic announcement on social media earlier this month.

Serena Williams shuts down question about Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s stepping back from royal family

Serena Williams is keeping her focus on tennis while playing in the Australian Open even as her good friend Meghan Markle is making headlines all around the world.

During a press conference on Monday, the 38-year-old multi-Grand Slam winner avoided answering a question about the Duchess of Sussex‘s announcement she and her husband, Prince Harry, are stepping down as senior members of the royal family and will be spending half their time in Canada.

According to The New York Times reporter Ben Rothenberg, another reporter asked: “Your good friend, Meghan Markle, who attended your last two slams, and Harry, have taken a move, a stance that many people think is extraordinary and historic. What are your feelings about that? Have you spoken to her?”

PRINCE HARRY, MEGHAN MARKLE STEPPING BACK AS SENIOR MEMBERS OF ROYAL FAMILY

Williams responded, “Yeah, I have absolutely no comments on anything with that. But good try. You tried. You did good.”

Williams and Markle have been friends for years and the royal family member frequently attends Williams’ matches in tournaments such as Wimbledon in London and the US Open in New York City. Williams also attended Markle and Harry’s wedding in May 2018 with husband Alexis Ohanian.

On Saturday, Queen Elizabeth released a new statement regarding the status of “Megxit.”

QUEEN ISSUES STATEMENT ON MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY AFTER FAMILY TALKS, AGREES TO PART-TIME MOVE TO CANADA

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are grateful to Her Majesty and the Royal Family for their ongoing support as they embark on the next chapter of their lives. As agreed in this new arrangement, they understand that they are required to step back from Royal duties, including official military appointments. They will no longer receive public funds for Royal duties,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement on the official royal family website.

The palace continued: “With The Queen’s blessing, the Sussexes will continue to maintain their private patronages and associations. While they can no longer formally represent The Queen, the Sussexes have made clear that everything they do will continue to uphold the values of Her Majesty.

“The Sussexes will not use their HRH [His or Her Royal Highness] titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared their wish to repay Sovereign Grant expenditure for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their U.K. family home,” the palace said.

The refurbishment reportedly cost £2.4 million, or approximately $3.1 million, the Daily Mail has reported.

PRINCE HARRY BREAKS SILENCE AFTER ‘MEGXIT’ ANNOUNCEMENT: ‘NO OTHER OPTION’

“Buckingham Palace does not comment on the details of security arrangements. There are well-established independent processes to determine the need for publicly-funded security,” it added.

Queen Elizabeth II simultaneously released a statement of her own voicing her support.

“Following many months of conversations and more recent discussions, I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved members of my family,” she said.

WHAT LED TO MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY’S ROYAL DEPARTURE

“I recognize the challenges they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for a more independent life,” the 93-year-old monarch said. “I want to thank them for all their dedicated work across this country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family.

“It is my whole family’s hope that today’s agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life,” she added.

He added: “And I think Harry, I think he is sad, I don’t think he really wants to go. I mean, what’s he going to do there? He’s not a showbiz person, he’s not a media star like that.”

The royal expert’s comments came in response to Prince Harry who, on Sunday, publicly addressed his decision to “step back” from royal life, saying he wanted to continue supporting Queen Elizabeth without public funding, but “unfortunately, that wasn’t possible.”

MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY EXPECTED TO STILL RECEIVE FUNDS FROM PRINCE CHARLES: REPORT

In a speech given at a dinner for supporters of the Sentebale charity in London, the Prince addressed why he and his wife, Meghan Markle, chose to relinquish their “royal highness” titles and move part-time to Canada.

“Before I begin, I must say that I can only imagine what you may have heard, or perhaps read, over the past few weeks,” Harry said. “So, I want you to hear the truth from me — as much as I can share, not as a prince or a duke, but as Harry, the same person that many of you have watched grow up over the past 35 years, but now with a clearer perspective.

“The U.K. is my home and a place that I love. That will never change,” he continued. “I have grown up feeling supported by so many of you, and I watched as you welcomed Meghan with open arms, as you saw the love and happiness that I had hoped for all my life. Finally, the second son of Diana got hitched, hooray!”

Harry then stressed that he and Markle still held the same values, and she’s still the same woman he’s loved. He also recounted the excitement they felt when they began their journey together, and addressed the “great sadness” he feels at the situation becoming so dire.

The speech came after the announcement that Harry and Markle will no longer be referred to as “royal highness” and will pay back the $3.1 million they used to renovate their home, Frogmore Cottage, following their historic announcement on social media earlier this month.

Why you might catch the flu twice this season

At least 13 million cases of the flu have already been diagnosed so far this season, according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), but experts are cautioning that those who have already battled the virus may be at risk of getting it for a second time as another strain gains traction across the U.S.

Recent updates on the CDC’s weekly flu surveillance said that “approximately equal numbers of B/Victoria and A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses have been reported.” And while you can’t catch the same strain of the flu twice, you can be sickened by one and then later contract another as we face what one expert calls a possible “double-barrel season.”

DR. MARC SIEGEL: YES, YOU CAN GET THE FLU TWICE

“We have all these odd ingredients coming together so that we have, at this juncture, an awful lot of flu with the potential for being as bad as our last bad year, if not worse,” Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist with Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the medical director at the National Foundation for Infectious Disease, told Prevention.

The CDC also noted that it’s unusual for the influenza B virus to emerge so early in the season, which hasn’t happened in the U.S. in the last 27 years. The B virus strains are also “more common among children and can cause complications, resulting in hospitalization and death.” So far this season, the agency has confirmed 39 pediatric influenza-associated deaths.

“This season has turned a lot of [what we know about flu] on its head,” Schaffner told HealthLine.com. “There’s a lot we know, and even more we don’t know about flu.”

FLU SUSPECTED IN DEATH OF TEXAS TEEN: ‘IT HAPPENED SO FAST’

Still, Schaffner told the news outlet that for someone to be sickened twice in the same season would be a rare occurrence.

The CDC reports high flu activity across the U.S., and expects it to continue for weeks. And while 172.2 million doses of the flu vaccine have already been distributed, early analysis of cases reported in children in Louisiana suggests that the strain in the shot does not match the subgroup of influenza B currently circulating. Still, the CDC says the strains are close enough to offer at least some protection against the virus.

“If you’ve been vaccinated, and even if there is a mismatch, you are likely to have a less severe infection when you get it,” Schaffner told HealthLine.com.

The CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older receive the flu vaccine each season, and those at risk of serious flu complications should seek immediate medical attention if suspected symptoms develop.

Utah snowmobiler, 18, dies after avalanche buries him on trip with dad

A teen in Utah died Saturday after being buried under an avalanche for over an hour while snowmobiling with his father, who confessed “my strength availed nothing” in the race to save his son.

Chase Adams, 18, and his father, Ben, were snowmobiling in Farmington Canyon, located about 20 miles north of Salt Lake City, when they were caught in an avalanche around 1:30 p.m., the Davis County Sheriff’s Office said.

While Adams and his snowmobile were immediately buried under the debris, his father managed to escape. Ben Adams said he prayed while calling 911 and Chase’s mother.

“We spent the day at a location that is dear to me and my boys,” he said Sunday in a statement released through the sheriff’s office. “We had a wonderful day doing what we love to do. When the snow slid, I was shocked, but I had a feeling everything was going to be okay.”

Adams was wearing the necessary safety equipment: an avalanche beacon and inflatable backpack. He deployed the airbag in his backpack, but it did not float as intended, according to the sheriff’s office.

The avalanche, which was unintentionally triggered, buried Adams under at least six feet of snow, the Utah Avalanche Center said.

Rescuers raced to the scene after receiving 911 calls. Within 70 minutes of the calls, rescuers located Chase, dug him out from the snow and airlifted him to a hospital, where he later died, the sheriff said.

Ben Adams thanked rescuers, medical staff and other bystanders on the slope for their efforts.

“I am an extremely strong man and in the moment of physical need to save my son my strength availed nothing,” he said. “I was useless and shifted my strength to God. I relied on Him, knowing my nothingness and trusting His great power to give me strength to know that, someday, we will see each other again, by virtue of Jesus Christ.”

While what triggered the avalanche is still under investigation, officials told the Standard-Examiner that the recent fluctuation between snow and warm weather could have caused the slide.
