Man called out for wanting to propose with engagement ring customized for ex-girlfriend: ‘Hell no’

Westlake Legal Group man-called-out-for-wanting-to-propose-with-engagement-ring-customized-for-ex-girlfriend-hell-no Man called out for wanting to propose with engagement ring customized for ex-girlfriend: ‘Hell no’ fox-news/lifestyle/relationships fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc article Alexandra Deabler 86e6cee7-fab2-557f-98e8-b27b7cb83ac1

This bride-to-be wasn’t expecting her “something old” to be her engagement ring.

A concerned woman took to Reddit seeking advice after she learned her boyfriend was planning to propose to her with an engagement ring he had custom made for his ex-girlfriend.

The woman explained her boyfriend asked her if she would be OK with the second-hand ring, noting “it’s just been sitting in his cupboard.”

BRIDE-TO-BE SLAMMED FOR COMPLAINING ABOUT HEIRLOOM RING: ‘IT LOOKED OLD’

“He and his ex were together for about 4 years and he had planned to propose to her, however the proposal did not happen because the girl had broken his heart again and again and he finally had enough. Before that though, he had ordered a customized a ring from overseas for her. I’m not sure what the actual value of the ring was, but according to him he spent few thousand dollars on the ring in total. This was not even including the money spent flying to and fro,” she wrote in the post.

Though the woman claimed she could “see the practicality of it,” she confessed “something in my heart just can’t get over the fact that the ring was originally made for someone else in mind.”

“He assured me that she never wore it, but I just don’t want something that wasn’t made for me. Am I being unreasonable? I don’t need an expensive ring, and I don’t need diamonds, but I’d like the ring to be bought with me in mind,” she wrote.

Those on Reddit were quick to tell the bride-to-be that she was not being unreasonable.

“No girl! You’re not being unreasonable. Rings carry stories and history,” one person commented.

“I like to think of myself as a practical person who is also not superstitious, but HELLLL NOOO to the failed-past-relationship-bad-juju ring! I can empathize with your boyfriend on the ring being a total financial loss, but there are plenty of other practical and reasonably priced ring options that he could purchase for you with you in mind,” another wrote.

“For this ex: a customized ring that was so special he couldn’t source it locally and flew overseas to get it. For you: an unused ring sitting around in the cupboard,” one wrote.

Many offered up practical advice, as well.

“As a jeweler, I’d say keep the diamond, and reset it. A diamond is a diamond, and the mounting should be just for you,” one person commented.

“I would ask him to have the stone reset into something customized for you. Obviously you won’t be happy with a ring customized for his ex,” another seconded.

The anonymous woman seemed pleased with the responses she received.

“Great idea. I love the idea of repurposing the stone into a different piece of jewelry as well!”

Mom of YouTube star, 15, admits that her daughter’s Las Vegas wedding was fake for ‘clickbait’

Westlake Legal Group iStock-899308534 Mom of YouTube star, 15, admits that her daughter’s Las Vegas wedding was fake for 'clickbait' Janine Puhak fox-news/lifestyle/relationships fox-news/lifestyle/parenting fox-news/lifestyle fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc article 86b8a51a-953c-5ead-b56e-85191c73813d

The mother of a 15-year-old social media star revealed that her daughter’s recent Las Vegas wedding to her boyfriend, 16, was simply for “clickbait,” publicized in a monetized YouTube video. Though the questionable stunt soon caught heat online, the mom says the teens are “committed” to the future of their relationship — though she refused to comment on the rumor that her daughter was pregnant.

Danielle “Dani” Cohn rose to Internet fame on Musical.ly (now part of TikTok) and now commands a following of 3.5 million users on Instagram and 1.2 million on YouTube, BuzzFeed reports.

On April 13, the teen shocked fans by sharing a clip called “We got married” to her YouTube page, which has since been viewed almost three million times. In the footage, Cohn “marries” her boyfriend Mikey Tua in a ceremony officiated by an Elvis impersonator.

FAMOUS YOUTUBE PARENTS APOLOGIZE FOR ‘CRUEL’ APRIL FOOLS’ JOKE ON DAUGHTER AFTER BACKLASH

Though the teen sweethearts were all smiles as they went through the motions of tying the knot, fans were not left laughing.

“This is way out of hand now,” one video commenter moaned.

“Middle schoolers after a week of dating,” another joked.

“On this episode for Dr. Phil,” another cynic smirked.

“Bro April Fools is over,” one chimed in, likening the stunt to Justin and Hailey Bieber’s April Fools’ prank that they were pregnant.

In the days since, Cohn’s mother, Jennifer, told BuzzFeed that she feels “pretty sad that this has become such a huge deal” as her daughter continues to face backlash and ridicule for the clip.

“It was a YouTube video like most YouTube people do for clickbait,” Jennifer, who acts as Cohn’s manager, said. “She committed to her best friend in Vegas … legally they can’t get married.”

“People prank and do all kinds of stuff on the internet,” she continued to muse, though she did not respond to BuzzFeed’s “multiple inquiries” regarding Cohn’s self-perpetuated rumor that she is expecting.

Just a few days before, Cohn’s legions of followers were left scratching their heads when she posted a photo to Instagram of Tua kissing her bare stomach; Tua then tweeted “Expecting 08/14/19.”

Neither of the teens has publically addressed the matter on social media since.

Everything’s coming up rosy for Taylor Swift.

The “Delicate” musician, 29, is featured on one of the covers of Time’s 100 Most Influential People issue, clad in a baby blue cashmere sweater by Khaite ($660) and a heart-shaped gold, opal and diamond ring from Jennifer Meyer ($4,750).

Inside the issue, Swift poses in a pale pink Stella McCartney chiffon dress ($2,150) alongside an essay by her pop peer Shawn Mendes, who opened a number of the shows during her “1989” world tour.

DUCT-TAPE BIKINI TREND INVADES COACHELLA, RECEIVES MIXED FEEDBACK FROM FESTIVALGOERS

“Taylor makes the job of creating music for millions of people look easy,” Mendes, 20, wrote. “It all comes from her — her belief in magic and love, and her ability to be as honest and raw as possible. She’s the master of putting the perfect amount of thought into not overthinking, and that’s why her music connects so well.”

Swift’s feature on Time’s list comes amidst rumors that she’s set to release new music on April 26, and it’s likely no coincidence that her look for the shoot — heavy on the pastels and sweet motifs — perfectly matches the aesthetic she’s adopted on social media recently.

Over the past week, the singer’s shared shots of several heart-shaped gems, and has been working with a palette of pastel pinks, blues and yellows; meanwhile, her website currently features a countdown clock set on a backdrop of sparkling hearts and candy-colored clouds. At last month’s iHeartRadio Music Awards, she wore similar shimmering shades, and even debuted (temporary) pink hair.

Duct-tape bikini trend invades Coachella, receives mixed feedback from festivalgoers

Festivalgoers are known for making daring fashion decisions — but the new craze taking over Coachella may be the riskiest yet.

Instead of simply opting for round sunglasses, feathers, crop tops or graphic T-shirts, some music fans are slapping on stick-on bikinis made of metallic duct-tape as they hit the desert. The “stick-on” swimwear trend has gained attention this month, particularly after models sported colorful and patterned duct tape during the Ultra Festival in Miami.

Miami designer and photographer Joel Alvarez, dubbed the “King of Tape,” claims to have come up with the idea to use electrical tape while working with a model in 2008. After receiving positive feedback on the look, he launched an online shop called the Black Tape Project that promotes “alternative fashion” including varieties of metallic tape.

MICO ‘SKINNY DIPPING’ BIKINI WITH INVISIBLE STRAPS COMES WITH ‘CAUTION,’ CAUSES SOCIAL MEDIA FRENZY

“Although this art project started exclusively with black electrical tape, I had begun to experiment with different techniques and new forms of adhesive tapes,” Alvarez explains in the website’s bio.

The designs also turned heads during New York Fashion Week and Miami Swim Week in 2018, though Alvarez says the trend has really taken off on Instagram in recent months.

“Festival ready? Get your tape today,” the site, which boasts more than 370,000 Instagram followers, posted on Friday, along with a photo of a woman sporting reflective tape at Coachella in California.

The post received more than 10,000 likes and hundreds of comments — with many applauding the woman’s unique look.

“Beautiful!” one user exclaimed, adding fire emojis.

“Ughhh loveeee,” another echoed.

“Oh wow hands down best outfit of all the fests!!” another exclaimed.

Others, however, voiced some concerns with the stick-on bikini.

“How do they go to the bathroom?” one user asked.

“I wonder how painful it is to remove it…” a second pondered.

“That will hurt,” another suggested.

This isn’t the only risqué bikini turning heads this year, however.

Online retailer Oh Polly recently added a jaw-dropping string bikini – complete with clear straps – to its summer swimwear collection.

The sexy two-piece, which is labeled the “Skinny Dipping Clear Strap Micro Triangle Bikini,” comes in flesh-colored shades including burnt orange and cream. The bikini bottom, which are sold separately for the same price, showcases one’s derrière with its high-cut, thong fit.

Hundreds of people have reviewed the bikini — some complimenting the design with others dubbing it a failure. But the negative feedback seemingly hasn’t impacted the brand, as the bikini appeared to run out of several sizes for both tops and bottoms within days of its release.

Dad disses father-daughter dances as ‘creepy’ on Reddit, sparking backlash and debate

Westlake Legal Group dad-disses-father-daughter-dances-as-creepy-on-reddit-sparking-backlash-and-debate Dad disses father-daughter dances as ‘creepy’ on Reddit, sparking backlash and debate Janine Puhak fox-news/lifestyle/parenting fox-news/lifestyle fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc article 702fe658-c74a-5923-9f24-088845d5679a

One dad recently took to Reddit to poll users regarding their thoughts on the ethics of father-daughter dances for school-aged kids, as he sees the “creepy” tradition as one that can “sexualize the relationship between daughter and father.” Though the man refused to back down from questioning why the “weird archaic” pastime is still popular today, some commenters called out the author’s controversial view, while others supported his disdain for the “gross” tradition.

Earlier this week, Redditor pfunnk14 took to the social forum platform to air his grievances and voice his woes, after getting into a fight with his wife about the dances, BuzzFeed News reports.

The trouble began when the author saw an ad for a Valentine’s Day daddy-daughter dance, which he has been mulling over ever since. Though the couple’s daughter is only 2 years old and the situation is theoretical, the man told his wife he disapproved of the practice in general.

“My reasons were this: They are creepy and sexualize the relationship between daughter and father. It’s on Valentine’s Day. The dad and daughter are dressed like they are going to prom together. It’s oddly ‘date-like,’” the father began. “Not to mention it these dances have their roots purity balls where fathers claim sexual ownership of daughters until marriage.”

MOM CLAIMS SHE WAS KICKED OUT OF VALENTINE’S DAY FATHER-DAUGHTER DANCE

“The whole thing just grosses me out and makes my skin crawl. I love my daughter with all my heart, but I don’t want to date her. I also don’t want to reinforce weird gender and patriarchal stereotypes in my daughters young mind,” pfunnk14 continued — though his partner soon “lost it.”

“She was shaking and crying. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her look at me with such disdain,” pfunnk14 said of his wife. “She thinks I would be denying my daughter a special bonding experience. She was worried my daughter would feel so hurt and left out by this.”

The author admitted that even though he would attend a father-daughter dance one day if his young daughter “really wanted” to, he doesn’t “see the big deal in not wanting to participate in a weird archaic pastime that sexualizes my relationship with my daughter.”

“I can kind of see my wife’s point, but she was so mad I literally didn’t understand it,” pfunnk14 said.

“She thinks I would be denying my daughter a special bonding experience. She was worried my daughter would feel so hurt and left out by this.” (iStock)

In an edited note, the dad revealed that his wife has had a fraught relationship with her own father, which likely contributed to her “sensitivity about this issue.” He also acknowledged that while father-daughter dances gained popularity in an era past, when some fathers didn’t have close bonds with their daughters, he is fortunate to already share a close relationship with his 2-year-old tot, as he stays home while his wife works full-time.

“These dances are from a time when a dad went to work and the mom stayed home and raised the kids. Dads were distant and didn’t raise their kids. So these dances were a way for a dad to actually spend time with their daughters,” pfunnk14 mused. “I promise you that’s not the case here. I spend every single day with my daughter. We do fun stuff all the time. No worries there.”

After setting the record straight, commenters erupted to share their take on the tale, in a post that has since won over 2,000 upvotes and sparked more than 700 comments. Some supported pfunnk14’s stance, while others bashed his perspective.

“They are disgusting. That’s a 100% hard no for me,” one critic clapped. “All these dumb things are rooted in puritanical religious beliefs that a dad owns his daughter and her sexuality, and decides when to give it to another man.”

“You’re absolutely justified in thinking they are creepy and refusing to attend,” another agreed. “[But] I see the value in teaching your daughter how someone who loves them (whether friend, romantic partner, family, etc.) will behave during a night out. If she ever wants to go to a father daughter dance, maybe consider if you could make it about something positive. If not, explain your objections in an age-appropriate manner, take her to a science or history museum to learn about strong women, then take her out for dinner.”

Others, meanwhile, blasted pfunnk14 for slamming what they believed to be an innocent, wholesome tradition.

“Valentines is kind of creepy, but I remember going to a Luau themed one with my dad and it is a great memory,” one said.

So these dances were a way for a dad to actually spend time with their daughters,” the author mused. “I promise you that’s not the case here. I spend every single day with my daughter. We do fun stuff all the time. No worries there.” (iStock)

“I disagree, the roots might be bad but the idea of it is different now,” another offered. “I loved daddy daughter dances with my dad. They were special times to bond and dance with other kids my age and him. It never had anything to do with my sexuality and we aren’t religious. You’re not [wrong] for not wanting to do it, but maybe think about how many people actually think of it that way.”

Another, too, chimed in that at her own father-daughter dances of days past, “it wasn’t like we were even dancing WITH our dads most of the time, usually the girls were all dancing and the dads were all sitting at the snack table and hanging out.”

One sage commenter, meanwhile, eased the tension with some more balanced advice.

“I don’t think your wife is coming at this from a place of inappropriate boundaries. She sounds like she just wants you to dance with your daughter occasionally, which can be great memories,” the Redditor said. “I’d drop this for now; the kid is TWO. Come back a few years later and have a real discussion about it.”

“Maybe there’s a non-creepy version of this. There’s got to be, because a daughter and a dad dancing usually invokes tenderness and joy. But I’d leave it for now, seriously,” they added.

Pfunnk14 said that was the “best advice” he’d gotten on the matter and dished that he had personally moved on.

“I haven’t brought it up again because it’s an argument for a future date. Maybe I’ll change my mind by then, I can’t be sure,” he concluded. “I’m all about genderless parent/child dances for that reason.”

As for matters of the heart, he’s still embarrassed and ashamed that he made his wife so upset.

“She really looked at me like I loved my daughter less than she had thought. It was not a good feeling.”

Bride-to-be nixes engagement shoot, takes photos with terminally ill father instead

When one bride-to-be learned the heartbreaking news that her father, who was battling cancer, would be moving to hospice care, she called off her engagement photo shoot with her fiancé and took pictures in the backyard of her childhood home with her dad instead.

The Virginia woman looked lovely in her wedding gown, her veteran father handsome in his U.S. Air Force dress blues, in a series of portraits that would later prove to be all the more powerful as the father of the bride would not live to see his daughter’s wedding day.

BRIDE’S WEDDING DANCE WITH TERMINALLY ILL DAD IN WHEELCHAIR GOES VIRAL  

The story began in September 2018, when Becky Carey and her future groom, Matt, contacted their engagement session photographer Bonnie Turner, Southern Living reports, requesting to reschedule their appointment. Carey apologized for having to shuffle the plans around, and shared tragic news.

“My dad [Tim] has been fighting prostate cancer and his body is now at the point where it can’t handle more treatment. We found out yesterday that he starts hospice this week,” the woman wrote, asking if Turner could use the deposit for the engagement photos for a “family photo session” instead.

“Matt and I will worry about our photos later, because this is more pressing with time,” Carey continued. “Of course this is a very difficult and dark time, but I know how you feel about love and capturing it so beautifully and meaningfully.”

Turner obliged, and soon traveled to the family home on the same day that the bride’s videographer friend was taking “first dance” footage of the dad and daughter — in the event that her dad would not be there for her special day, as per Brides.

Though the photos and happy memories of the sentimental moment will surely last a lifetime, Tim sadly passed away on March 28 — before his daughter’s upcoming wedding day.

“My heart is heavy today as I have been informed of his passing. He fought so hard for a very long time,” Turner wrote on Facebook of his passing, sharing the images online.

“These photos are near and dear to this family and most of all, special to [Becky.] Photographs and memories are EVERYTHING when they are all you have left,” she said of the shoot.

In the weeks since, the powerful tale of the dad and daughter has gone massively viral from Turner’s post, with over 81,000 likes, 33,000 shares, and not a dry eye in the 5,000 comments.

“I’m sobbing. Photographs are everything,” one fan wrote. “These are so beautiful.”

“Memories and photographs are most definitely everything! Truly amazing! Prayers for this special family,” another agreed.

“I absolutely love this! As someone who didn’t get to dance with her dad at her wedding I can’t even begin to tell you what a treasure these pictures will be to her now and in the future,” another offered.

This isn’t your standard dad bod.

A Montana father-of-three says he was spurred to shred nearly 100 pounds when he noticed he couldn’t keep up with his kids.

MOM FLAUNTS BIKINI BODY AFTER 137-POUND WEIGHT LOSS

It all started in 2017 when 290-pound Jeremiah Peterson, 40, took a hiking trip with his wife and 9, 7 and 6-year-old and found himself constantly gasping for air.

“Instead of remembering all the good memories we had made on this trip all I can remember is this one thing that kept playing in my head over and over again,” Peterson wrote on Instagram.

“I found myself running out of breath and having to take breaks way before my [kids].”

So the pop decided to turn his flab into abs — and achieved his goal in just five months.

He dropped from a size 42 jeans to 33, thanks to a strict keto diet and an intense exercise regimen, according to ABC 10.

Diane Keaton’s retro jeans receive rave reviews from celebrities: ‘I’ve never received more compliments’

Diane Keaton has been a fashion icon for decades for her simple — yet elegant — wardrobe that’s chock-full of turtlenecks, suits and other clothing that comes in various shades of black.

But the 73-year-old actress isn’t afraid to mix things up every now and then. In fact, her latest style choice has her celebrity pals applauding.

On Sunday, the star posted a monologue online about a pair of wide-leg jeans she says have drawn significant attention in recent days. Keaton said she’s worn the ’90s-inspired denim, which many have claimed may be JNCO, to both run errands and attend events. After fielding several inquiries about the pants, Keaton decided to take to Instagram to show them off.

“REGARDING THESE PANTS: THIS IS SERIOUSLY TRUE. I WORE THEM ON THE PLANE. I WORE THEM IN THE HOTEL DUPONT.  I WORE THEM IN THE DELAWARE ART MUSEUM. I WORE THEM ON A LONG WALK THROUGH THE WILMINGTON STREETS. I’M WEARING THEM ON THE TRAIN TO NYC. I’VE NEVER RECEIVED MORE COMPLIMENTS ON ANYTHING I’VE EVER WORN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE,” wrote Keaton, along with two photos of herself in the belted jeans.

The images show Keaton posing front and back with her hands on her hips, wearing a black hat, black turtleneck and chunky boots.

‘AMERICAN IDOL’ JUDGE KATY PERRY JOKINGLY JABS CONTESTANT OVER SONG COVER: ‘HOW DARE YOU!’

As of Tuesday morning, Keaton’s post has received more than 105,000 likes and hundreds of comments from fans and celebrities alike.

“Uh… they’re great because YOU’RE wearing them,” commented former “Friends” star Lisa Kudrow.

“WHO MAKES THEM???” asked Gwyneth Paltrow, while Jennifer Garner echoed her friend’s question: “Thank you, Gwyneth, WHO MAKES THEM?!!!”

“You are my hero!” exclaimed “Girlfriends” actress Tracee Ellis Ross.

SUZANNE SOMERS FANS DEFEND 72-YEAR-OLD ‘THREE’S COMPANY’ STAR’S NUDE BATHTUB SNAP: ‘YOU STILL GOT IT’

Actress Debra Messing was enthralled with the pants’ pockets.

“DIANE — you are the bomb! Who makes them? The pockets?!?!” asked Messing, adding a heart emoji.

Film director Nancy Meyers called the star “the coolest.”

“Xo from a long time fan,” signed Meyers, adding, “What’s happening in Delaware?”

Meyers worked with co-stars Keaton and Jack Nicholson on the romantic comedy “Something’s Gotta Give” in 2003. In the film, Nicholson’s character Harry pokes fun at Keaton’s character Erica for always wearing turtlenecks.

“What’s with the turtlenecks? It’s the middle of summer,” Harry asks Erica in the movie.

“I like them. I’ve always liked them, and I’m just a turtleneck kind of gal,” Erica later replied.

It appears she still does. Keaton has yet to give her star-studded friend group an answer — until then, fans will have to try their best to replicate the look without guidance.

Mom demands children give their Build-A-Bears to daughter at birthday party, gets slammed on social media

Westlake Legal Group mom-demands-children-give-their-build-a-bears-to-daughter-at-birthday-party-gets-slammed-on-social-media Mom demands children give their Build-A-Bears to daughter at birthday party, gets slammed on social media fox-news/lifestyle/parenting fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc f5b376e4-a829-5f10-a778-3458342a0971 article Alexandra Deabler

This is un-bear-able.

A mom was shocked by an unusual incident that allegedly unfolded at a child’s birthday party and turned to Reddit for advice.

The anonymous poster claimed on Reddit’s Parenting forum that she took her 6-year-old daughter to a classmate’s birthday party at Build-A-Bear Workshop over the weekend.

“The invitation said each kid (about 8 total) would get to make a Bear, and I just assumed they would get to take them home, since that is what happened at another BAB party I went to. Me and my husband even pitched in about 30 dollars as we know these things can get expensive,” the poster wrote on Reddit.

After the children spent time making their special animals and picking accessories, the group left the store and planned to go back to the birthday girl’s house for the rest of the party. However, as the kids left the workshop, the mom of the birthday girl announced each child would have to turn over their animal.

“All is well, we leave the store, then friends mom announces that the kids need to give all their animals to her daughter. Cue the upset and angry kids. They all disappointingly handed over their animals, and friend wasn’t even being nice about it either. Another little boy didn’t want to, and friend ripped it out of his hands. I probably should have said something, but I didn’t. The other parents seemed pretty baffled too,” she wrote.

The mom said she went to the party, but her daughter became upset watching as the birthday girl played with all her new animals.

After she returned home, the mom turned to Reddit asking if “this is totally normal and I should have expected this, or am I being an entitled parent?”

Those on Reddit were quick to respond, defending the mom as not being entitled.

“That is really weird!! I can’t believe the parents made all the kids give away their bears,” one person commented.

“Agreed. Beyond strange. I would never in a million years think to have a party where the kids (and our guests) have to give away their item. So bizarre,” another wrote.

“Their daughter and family will forever be remembered for this. And NOT fondly,” another pointed out, concerned the birthday girl will now be disliked by her peers.

Though some tried to reason that maybe the parent throwing the party thought the bears would be gifts — but those attending the party should have been told in the invitation.

“I think it would have been less weird if they had said that up front like ‘Oh she wants a bear specially thought out by each of her friend’ to make it seem like they’ll be special or something lol,” one person wrote.

In an update, the original poster explained that she talked to the mom of the party at the school pickup, but did not get a satisfying explanation.

The mom said she asked the mom throwing the party “why the kids didn’t get to keep their bears,” noting she “even pitched in a little bit of money, assuming the bears would go to the kids.

To which the mom allegedly responded, “Well I didn’t have enough money for each of the guests to make their own, that would get pretty expensive! If you want your money back I’ll see about getting it back to you. I don’t really see the problem though.”

Though the mom who wrote the post said she didn’t “push” the topic, she was frustrated that the mom didn’t “have enough money for all the kids” to get a bear, but had “enough [money] for her daughter to get like 8 bears.”
