Anthony Bourdain’s Girlfriend Breaks Her Silence on His Death and His “Brilliant, Fearless Spirit”

Only hours after the news of his tragic death, Anthony Bourdain’s girlfriend, Asia Argento, has made her first statement. In a short Twitter post on Friday, Asia remembered her late partner’s “brilliant, fearless spirit” and requested privacy for both herself and his family as they grieve.

“Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did. His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds,” recalled the Italian actress and director. “He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated. My thoughts are with his family. I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine.”

Anthony was a major voice of support when Asia accused Harvey Weinstein of rape in Oct. 2017. “I am proud and honored to know you. You just did the hardest thing in the world,” Anthony tweeted after Asia shared her story.

You May Be Surprised to Find Out Which 10 Celebs Rule Snapchat

Of all the social media platforms out there, Snapchat is probably the least intuitive and the most intimate (and no, we’re not just talking about scandalous snaps here). Celeb accounts can give you a glimpse at everything from meals to closets to hangouts with other celebs – all in real time. But even if you’ve tracked down your favorite public figures’ handles and finally figured out the Snapchat lingo, so much else will always remain a mystery. Unlike Twitter and Instagram, there are no verified accounts, no archived data, no profile information, no “likes,” and – most notably – no brag-worthy follower count.

Lucky for us, Snapdex keeps an updated rank of the most popular celebrities on Snapchat using multiple metrics to determine where user engagement is the highest. Using its algorithm for help, we’ve rounded up the 10 most popular celebrities on Snapchat and the type of content they deliver. Kylie Jenner may be known as the reigning queen of Snapchat, but read on to see who actually holds the title.

Ryan Reynolds Is Still No Match For His Savage Twin Brother, Gordon – Watch Their Awkward Interview

Remember back in 2016 when Ryan Reynolds sat down for an interview with his twin brother, Gordon? Well, get ready, because the dynamic duo is back again – and yes, Gordon is still a savage. In celebration of World Gin Day on June 9, Ryan agreed to reunite with Gordon for another candid chat, and it didn’t take long for things to go south. “It’s like looking in the mirror . . . five years from now,” Gordon quips before grilling the Deadpool 2 star about everything from his iconic superhero character to his Father’s Day plans with daughters James and Inez. Gordon also takes a few swipes at Ryan’s movie career and asks if he “invented gin” before taking a “wee nip” of the alcohol for himself.

Ryan didn’t invent gin, but he is the recent owner of Aviation Gin and is releasing a limited-edition bottle for Father’s Day. Slam the play button on the video above now and prepare to LOL hard.

9 Song Lyrics From the ’90s That Made Absolutely ZERO Sense

Oh, the ’90s. Not only did you give us the beloved Tamagotchis and Clarissa Explains It All, but you graced us with life-changing music. Even though you blessed us with the original boy bands, some of the lyrics that came with them were a little questionable. Honestly, it pains my heart to say anything negative about the musical geniuses that filled my portable CD player back in the day. After all, I couldn’t imagine making it through my middle school graduation if I didn’t belt out “Graduation (Friends Forever)” by Vitamin C with my best friend beforehand. But sometimes it’s better to acknowledge the bad so that we can move on – with these ’90s stars in that special place in our hearts forever, of course.
