Paris Hilton’s dating history from Nick Carter to Chris Zylka

Paris Hilton has been in the spotlight since she was a teen and that means there’s been a lot of attention on her dating life.

The socialite turns 39 on Monday, so let’s take a look back at her dating history — from her engagement to “The Leftovers” actor Chris Zylka to being spotted around Los Angeles with Benji Madden back in the early 2000s.

PARIS HILTON ADMITS SHE STOLE ‘THAT’S HOT’ PHRASE FROM THIS STAR

Hilton was just spotted kissing businessman Carter Reum in February, so even though she’s currently not single here’s a breakdown of all her famous exes:

Chris Zylka

Hilton and the HBO star began dating in 2017 only to get engaged a year later on a ski trip to Aspen, Colo., in January 2018.

He popped the question with a stunning diamond ring that cost a reported $2 million, but the good times didn’t last long. The couple split in November 2018.

The “Simple Life” star dated the businessman for one year before calling it quits in April 2016.

River Viiperi

Hilton and the Spanish model dated for nearly two years until July 2014, when Hilton was spotted kissing another man in Malibu.

Cy Waits

The hotel heiress and the nightlife entrepreneur only dated for a year. They split in June 2011.

“We’re not together anymore,” Hilton confirmed at the time. “I love him and we remain really good friends … I feel like the relationship ran its course and we’ll see what happens.”

Hilton was pretty unbothered by her breakup with “The Hills” alum when they split in April 2010. “I am like so past that,” Hilton told Us Weekly as the time. “I don’t even care. “I don’t even remember that time in my life. I am over it!”

Benji Madden

The rocker and Hilton dated for only nine months before ending their relationship in November 2008.

Madden married actress Cameron Diaz in 2015 and the couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Raddix, in January 2020.

The couple, who share a name in common, started dating in December 2004 and got engaged eight months later only to call everything off in September 2005.

Nick Carter

The Backstreet Boys singer and Hilton dated for just seven months in 2004. Carter wrote in his 2013 autobiography, “Paris was the worst person in the world for me to hook up with. [She] fed my worst impulses as far as partying.”

This couple was, unfortunately, most known for making a sex tape that was leaked in 2003. “I just felt so betrayed,” Hilton said back in 2011, referring to Salomon reportedly leaking it. “This was not some random guy; this was someone I was with for a few years.”

Bloomberg implied farming doesn’t take intelligence in 2016 comments

Westlake Legal Group image Bloomberg implied farming doesn't take intelligence in 2016 comments Tyler Olson fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/michael-bloomberg fox news fnc/politics fnc article a6c80a44-5b9e-5c61-be21-62df24c73a1d

Presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg appeared to belittle both farmers and factory workers in 2016 comments made at a university forum, continuing a trend of old remarks resurfacing to plague the billionaire’s bid for the Democratic nomination.

Joining the Distinguished Speakers Series at the University of Oxford Saïd Business School, Bloomberg was responding to a question about whether it is possible to unite people in middle America and the coasts. One of the issues standing in the way of that, Bloomberg said, was the inability of blue-collar workers to adapt to the information economy even if they have their education subsidized.

“The agrarian society lasted 3,000 years and we could teach processes. I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer,” Bloomberg said. “It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn. You could learn that. Then we had 300 years of the industrial society. You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow and you can have a job. And we created a lot of jobs. At one point, 98 percent of the world worked in agriculture, now it’s 2 percent in the United States.”

BERNIE SANDERS TEARS INTO MICHAEL BLOOMBERG, SAYS DEM BILLIONAIRE CAN’T BEAT TRUMP

Bloomberg continued: “Now comes the information economy and the information economy is fundamentally different because it’s built around replacing people with technology and the skill sets that you have to learn are how to think and analyze, and that is a whole degree level different. You have to have a different skill set, you have to have a lot more gray matter. It’s not clear the teachers can teach or the students can learn, and so the challenge of society of finding jobs for these people, who we can take care of giving them a roof over their head and a meal in their stomach and a cell phone and a car and that sort of thing. But the thing that is the most important, that will stop them from setting up a guillotine someday, is the dignity of a job”

Bloomberg, who has faced a litany of negative stories in the past week about his past comments regarding women, African-Americans and others, concluded his point, saying, “the problem is not the redistribution of wealth, it is the job where you go in every day.”

TOM STEYER: KEY TO NEVADA. SOUTH CAROLINA SUCCESS IS SPENDING TIME THERE, NOT JUST MONEY

The former mayor’s comments drew the ire of many on Twitter, including the organization “People for Bernie,” which is dedicated to boosting Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. and began before the senator announced his candidacy.

“Time and again we see Bloomberg insulting the middle class and the working class, union members and not yet union members,” the organization tweeted. “Maybe it’s time for pundits to stop pretending he’s just another candidate. Bloomberg is an oligarch spending his play money to buy the White House.”

Bloomberg, who has made clear he is willing to spend $1 billion or more on his presidential campaign, is counting on his advertising advantage to put him over the top in Super Tuesday states after deciding to skip Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.

That strategy appears to be making at least some progress, as Bloomberg registered at 10 percent in the latest national Fox News poll after entering the presidential race late and missing every debate so far And he has appeared to make even more progress since that poll’s late-January release, checking in at third place nationally with 14.2 percent in the RealClearPolitics national average of polls.

‘The Breakfast Club’: 5 facts about the John Hughes classic to celebrate its 35th anniversary

35 years ago today, the world was introduced to an intrepid gang of high school students from different cliques who called themselves “The Breakfast Club.”

The John Hughes 1985 classic is praised to this day for showing the world a realistic look at some of the timeless struggles that America’s youth endure on a daily basis. It also made cast members Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall and Emilio Estevez household names synonymous with Hughes’ film.

After 35 years, the film remains a seminal classic that’s still beloved by even new generations. However, the film’s production had such a storied path to success that there’s a slew of interesting trivia facts that even the most die-hard “Breakfast Club” fans may not have heard.

To help celebrate the film’s 35th anniversary, below are some fun facts about “The Breakfast Club.”

Rick Moranis was fired from the film

An important but understated role in “The Breakfast Club” was Carl the janitor, played by actor John Kapelos. However, the character would have been much different if Hughes and “Ghostbusters” actor Rick Moranis had their way.

When production started, Hughes was elated that Moranis agreed to play the janitor. However, for a role that was relatively grounded in reality, Moranis had a very different interpretation of the character.

According to a 2015 article in Vanity Fair, Moranis showed up to set with his hair cut short, gold caps in his teeth and a pre-prepared thick Russian accent. When the first footage of Moranis’ portrayal went to producer Ned Tanen, he couldn’t put a stop to it fast enough. As co-producer Michelle Manning told the outlet:

“What the f— was that?” Tanen screamed into the phone.

“Well, Rick came and that is his interpretation of the janitor,” Manning said.

“No, we’re not going to do that,” he stated, insisting that the accent would take the audience out of the movie.

“Ned said we’re not doing that,” Manning reported to Hughes.

“Well, I can’t fire Rick Moranis,” responded Hughes.

“Then I guess I have to,” said Manning.

Molly Ringwald got a sexist scene cut from the film

Molly Ringwald lobbied director John Hughes to cut certain scenes from ‘The Breakfast Club’ (2016 Getty Images)

Ringwald had worked with Hughes on the 1984 film “Sixteen Candles.” As a result, she had a little more pull on the set than the rest of her co-stars. The actress penned a New Yorker article in 2018 about the sexist undertones of the film. In it, she revealed that she complained to the director about a scene in which Mr. Vernon, the teacher in charge of watching the students, found a peephole into the women’s locker room and spied on a female teacher who was swimming nude.

The actress lobbied for the director to cut the scene arguing that it was sexist. To the director’s credit, he listened and immediately penned an alternate scene.

“Although I’m sure the actress who had been cast in the part still blames me for foiling her break, I think the film is better for it,” Ringwald wrote.

She also notes that she and her mother were upset that a moment in which her character, Claire, has to show her underwear. It featured an adult actress stand-in for fear of asking a minor to expose her underwear. Due to the discomfort of the scene, both women complained but to no avail.

New footage came out three decades later  

When the film was released on Blu-ray, the Criterion Collection’s restored edition featured 50 minutes of previously never-before-seen footage, according to Variety.

Among those scenes was one featuring Claire and Allison striking up an uncomfortable conversation in the ladies’ room. Claire comments on Allison’s unique eating habits, lecturing her about eating chips in the bathroom. Clair realizes she offended Allison and notes she could “probably handle it” if she wanted to talk with her. In response, Allison further baits Claire by eating a chip that she dipped into the sink.

The scene never made it to the original cut of the movie, but thanks to its enduring popularity, came out 30 years later for fans to enjoy.

The library was actually a gym

The same Criterion Collection Blu-ray release came with an audio commentary track featuring Hall and Nelson. According to Film School Rejects, the stars revealed that the library where most of the film takes place did exist in a real high school, but it was not the library. That was just a clever set design from people who turned a gymnasium into a believable library set.

The duo shared that a local football team, the Chicago Blitz, wasn’t able to use their regular space for practice due to the shoot.

“They hated us,” Nelson recalled.

Anthony Michael Hall had a growth spurt during filming

Also revealed in the audio commentary was how difficult it was for Nelson to act alongside Hall in the later moments of the film due to his co-star’s incredible growth spurt.

“When we first auditioned, I was probably maybe two inches taller than him,” Nelson explained. “When we started rehearsals I was maybe half an inch taller than him. By the end of the movie Michael was taller than I was, and I’d already begun writing letters to geneticists.”

Dr. Nicole Saphier: Do I really need to walk 10,000 steps a day?

Westlake Legal Group image Dr. Nicole Saphier: Do I really need to walk 10,000 steps a day? Nicole Saphier fox-news/opinion fox-news/health fox-news/fitness-and-wellbeing fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 03414db8-40e7-5c48-91a3-7b190440c815

The world is obsessed with digital health technology.

Each month a new digital tech app or device is promoted as the latest and greatest, yet it leaves many confused.

Wearable health tech (Apple watch, FitBits, etc.) can alert us about sleeping patterns, whether we are moving enough or even if our heart is beating appropriately.

DR. NICOLE SAPHIER: SKIPPING BREAKFAST COULD BE THE GREATEST THING YOU DO IN 2020

If an alert pops up telling you that you have been sedentary for far too long, then the motivation for increased physical activity and engagement can help prevent disease and improve overall well-being.

Unless you are completely disconnected from television and social media then you have heard about some of the activity trackers and the 10,000-steps-a-day goal.

Hundreds of wearable gadgets promise a healthier lifestyle, but results vary whether they work and it’s easy to get lost in the jungle of digital health technology.

And… if you are like me, you already are behind in the technology arena so the chances of you buying the latest and greatest device every time it is announced is slim to none.

So, whether you use a digital activity tracker or a simple pedometer is 10,000 daily steps a good goal for you?

The reason you should consider setting a step goal is that walking is a form of exercise that’s available to most people. In fact, walking and/or any other regular activity can help reduce your risk of many common health problems such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Depression

The average American walks roughly 3,500 steps a day which is about 1.5 to 2 miles. — That’s well below the 10,000-step goal. Perhaps this is why Americans lead the world in obesity and sedentary lifestyles.

It’s a good idea to find out how many steps a day you walk on average each day because you may be walking more (or less) than you think.

Once you know how many steps a day you are walking then you can work up toward the goal of 10,000 steps by aiming to add extra steps a day every two weeks.

If you are already at the 10,000-step mark, then you can still try to increase your total because adding any more regular activity to your routine is still going to be beneficial to your health.

If you don’t like the idea of wearable tech and have no plans to count your steps, then a good starting goal is to try to get in at least 150 minutes a week of moderate activity.

The 150 minutes a week can be broken down in many ways so don’t think you have to stop everything for a 2.5 hour work out.

Some people try to do 30 minutes of activity five days a week while other do shorter sessions several times a day because of time restrictions.

My day is typically filled with a full day of work at the hospital seeing patients coupled with caring for three children and an occasional TV appearance.  Needless to say, there is limited time for me to get to the gym or attend a workout class.

Since brisk walking fits into the “moderate activity” recommendations by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, getting my steps in is crucial with my time limitations.

Twice daily I take a walk with my colleague around the perimeter of our 120,000 square foot building, which is about 1.2 miles per day.

More from Opinion

Although that sounds like a lot, there really are only about 2,500 steps in those walks!  To further increase my daily steps, I park farther from the building, use the stairs and drink water constantly throughout the day (which not only keeps me hydrated but makes sure I am walking to and from the bathroom often).

My routine may not be perfect, but I am conscious in my efforts to move more daily in addition to a healthy diet that involves intermittent fasting and increased raw fruits and vegetables.

Here is the reality, if you don’t want to be tasked to count steps or wear a tech device to remind you when you need more activity, just move more!

Find forms of activity you enjoy and incorporate it into your daily routine.  Even if your walking pace isn’t quick enough to be considered “moderate-intensity,” those steps still help prevent health problems that can occur from sitting too long and a sedentary lifestyle.

While the 150 minutes per week/ 10,000 daily steps are good goals to work towards, any amount of activity beyond what you are currently doing will only benefit your health.

A healthier America begins with you.

Curtis Hill: Why George Washington is the president who towers over all others in stature and importance

Westlake Legal Group image Curtis Hill: Why George Washington is the president who towers over all others in stature and importance fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/proud-american fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc e5121632-99d8-5fbe-8c2e-4749765a3176 Curtis Hill article

Although renamed in popular culture as “Presidents’ Day,” the federal holiday we celebrate the third Monday of each February remains, officially, “Washington’s Birthday.”

We should make sure it remains as such.

Don’t get me wrong. Abraham Lincoln is rightfully credited with saving the union in the midst of a devastating civil war. He is regarded by many as our best and possibly most important U.S. president. I don’t quarrel with Honest Abe’s outsized status in comparison with other commanders in chief.

GEORGE WASHINGTON ELECTED 1ST PRESIDENT: THIS DAY IN HISTORY

Nonetheless, one president towers over all others in stature and importance — George Washington, so memorably eulogized as “first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”

As a black American, I readily acknowledge that Washington’s “ownership” of slaves blemishes his legacy, and we must not overlook or excuse this fact of history. We’ll return to this subject momentarily.

We celebrate the life of George Washington, imperfect though he was, because he was the indispensable man who held our fragile republic together in its formative years.

But forty-four men have taken the presidential oath, but only one was indispensable to the founding of the United States. While all other presidents had predecessors to emulate or follow, Washington had only the Constitution and the will of the people. Relying on these guides, he invented the institution of the American presidency. That he was touched by divine providence in this endeavor there can be little doubt.

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER

As a military hero, General Washington was the face of the colonies’ rebellion against the British Empire. He built an effective army out of ragtag freedom-loving irregulars to wage battle against the mightiest war machine the world had ever yet known. Contemporaries often questioned Washington’s military prowess, criticizing him for retreating in battle after battle. That strategy, however, allowed him to preserve his army for the final decisive battle at Yorktown.

More from Opinion

Following that victory, which effectively sealed American independence, there was at least a smattering of talk about crowning Washington king — a notion that he abruptly denounced before resigning his military commission. Despite his enormous popularity, he simply returned to his home as Citizen Washington. Yet he could not escape the continuing call to public service.

After presiding over the constitutional convention, Washington was unanimously elected president by the Electoral College. He remains the only person ever to accomplish this feat, and he did it twice.

During his two terms, Washington declined titles and traditions that might be deemed grandiose or associated with royalty. He instead governed with humility, restraint and wisdom as the first “Mr. President.”

And then, after eight years of precedent-setting leadership, President Washington did the unimaginable. He voluntarily walked away from his high office, putting into practice the Constitution’s vision of the peaceful transition of power.

In his farewell address, Washington admonished all the nation’s public officials to “confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres.”

He warned against “the baneful effects of the spirit of party” and urged avoidance of the sort of tribalism that “kindles the animosity of one part against another.”

Further, he emphasized that “virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government” and expressed distrust of the idea “that morality can be maintained without religion.”

In talking about America, Washington struck the tone of a caring and proud “father of his country.”

And yes, the birth of our nation came with that aforementioned defect. The institution of slavery was the brutally inhumane paradox of the American Revolution that left a stain upon many Founding Fathers’ calls for individual freedom.

Washington in 1786 expressed his desire “to see some plan adopted by the legislature by which slavery in this Country may be abolished,” but he did not emancipate his own slaves until his death, by instructions set forth in his will. Washington never led any effort to abolish slavery in his lifetime, but his colossal contributions to our nation’s well-being as commander in chief remain unparalleled to this day.

We celebrate the life of George Washington, imperfect though he was, because he was the indispensable man who held our fragile republic together in its formative years.

There will never be another George Washington, but every civic-minded American alive today can find ways to help make our country better and stronger.

“Every post is honorable,” Washington once wrote, “in which (one) can serve his country.”

As we observe Washington’s Birthday again this year, all Americans should remember the truth of those words.

Tony Fernandez, former MLB All-Star, dies after battle with kidney disease

Tony Fernandez, a five-time All-Star and a World Series champion shortstop, died Sunday after a battle with kidney disease. He was 57.

Fernandez was taken off life support in a Florida hospital and was surrounded by family as he passed, said Imrad Hallim, the director and co-founder of the Tony Fernandez Foundation. Fernandez was in a medically induced coma and had waited for years for a new kidney.

DARVISH: ASTROS SHOULD BE STRIPPED OF ’17 WORLD SERIES TITLE

Former teammates Joe Carter and David Wells were among those who tweeted their condolences.

Fernandez played 17 seasons in the majors for the Toronto Blue Jays, San Diego Padres, New York Mets, Cincinnati Reds, New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians and Milwaukee Brewers. He played 12 years with the Blue Jays on four separate stints and was on their 1993 World Series-winning team.

Fernandez joined the Yankees in the 1995 season and was expected to help Derek Jeter transition from the minors to the majors as he was coming up through the system. He was set to slide from shortstop to second base during that season but broke his elbow diving at a ball during spring training.

COLE STARTS YANKEES TENURE WITH QUESTIONS ABOUT ASTROS

Jeter later went on to win the 1996 American League Rookie of the Year and Fernandez was on the Indians during the 1997 season.

Fernandez finished his career as the Blue Jays’ career leader in hits with 1,583, triples with 72 and games played with 1,450.

Chartered flights carrying quarantined passengers arrive in US; Daytona 500 postponed to Monday

Happy President’s Day, and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start your day …

Two chartered flights carrying quarantined passengers arrive in US

A pair of State Department-chartered flight carrying Americans from the coronavirus-infected Diamond Princess cruise ship arrived at Travis Air Force Base in California and Lackland Air Force Base in Texas early Monday morning.

Hundreds of American passengers who had been quarantined on the cruise ship left Japan Monday on the two planes en route to the United States — with 14 of the passengers infected and isolated in a “specialized containment area.”

The 46 Americans who tested positive on the cruise ship were told to remain in Japan to be treated for the virus that has killed an estimated 1,765 people and infected over 70,000 globally, according to Princess Cruise media relations. Buses had transported U.S passengers with assistance from Japanese troops from the ship to Haneda Airport in Tokyo. Click here for more on our top story.

Daytona 500 postponed to Monday afternoon following rain delays

The race will resume Monday at 4 p.m. ET, officials said.

The postponement came after two lengthy delays totaling over three hours. The first delay came moments after Trump’s motorcade completed a ceremonial parade lap around the 2 1/2-mile track. Click here for more.

Devin Nunes says Trump ‘has to tweet’ to combat ‘hard left’ media after Barr backlash

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., fired back at Democrats who criticized Attorney General William Barr for his role in former Trump associate Roger Stone’s sentencing and defended the president’s use of Twitter after he used the platform to comment about the ongoing criminal case.

“What’s happening here with Barr, I think people need to understand that he’s cleaning up the mess from not only the Obama administration but also the mess that was left with the whole Russia-gate fiasco,” Nunes told “Fox & Friends Weekend.”

Nunes’ comments came days after Barr himself publicly swiped at Trump, declaring Thursday that the president’s tweets about Justice Department prosecutors and open cases “make it impossible for me to do my job.” Click here for more.

Hollywood stuntwoman, husband killed after shootout: reports

A Hollywood stuntwoman who appeared in “Back To The Future II” and was a stunt double for Cameron Diaz, Charlize Theron, Jessica Alba and Uma Thurman was killed in a shootout Wednesday in Ohio, according to multiple reports.

Cheryl Sanders, 59, and husband Robert Reed Sanders allegedly approached her ex-husband Lindsey Duncan and his new wife Molly at their Yellow Springs home — leading to a shootout with hundreds of shots fired.

Duncan said he and his wife were returning home to pick up mail and a delivery at their gate when Reed, allegedly wearing a mask and hoodie, held a gun to his wife’s head.

“The word ‘ambush’ is exactly what it was,” Molly Duncan said at a press conference on Friday. “We were caught off guard. They said nothing and they started shooting at us.”

Reed Sanders was reportedly shot first, before Cheryl, who was armed also arrived and was killed in the gunfire, police said. They were both shot and killed by Duncan, the Dayton Daily News said.

A former business partner with Sanders, Adrian King said the shootout stemmed from a dispute over college funds for the daughters of Lindsey and Cheryl. Molly Duncan said the couple didn’t say anything when the gunfire began.

Police didn’t respond to questions regarding the statement by the Duncans, although an incident report lists the case as justifiable homicide.

Even after the shootout described as “sudden hell,” the hardest part for Duncan is “having to tell my two daughters that their mother’s [Sanders] been shot,” according to Dayton247now.

Authorities recovered three firearms and were looking for surveillance video, police said. They said that Lindsey Duncan has a concealed carry permit.

Women In Stunts, a website dedicated to women stunt performers made a statement following her passing.

“It is with a very broken heart that we share that Cheryl Wheeler Sanders was killed by gunfire on February 12, 2020, the statement said. “She was a dear friend and a wonderful person who often dealt with more in life than anyone should have to deal with.”
