Uzo Aduba Brings the Fire to Her Lip Sync Battle Against Danielle Brooks

Danielle Brooks and Uzo Aduba’s Lip Sync Battle doesn’t air until Wednesday, but judging from these sneak peeks, the women did not come to play. Danielle, who plays Tasha “Taystee” Jefferson on Orange Is the New Black, goes back to the ’80s and fully transforms into Jon Bon Jovi for an epic performance of “Livin’ on a Prayer,” while Uzo, also known as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on OITNB, brings the heat with her sync of Outkast’s “B.O.B.” We don’t know what’s better: Danielle’s spot-on brown wig or Uzo’s upbeat attitude. All we know is they better bring it.

Serena Williams’s Naked Vanity Fair Cover Will Actually Take Your Breath Away

Serena Williams is currently expecting her first child with fiancé Alexis Ohanian, but she’s already planning her return to the tennis court. In addition to looking absolutely stunning while posing nearly naked on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s August issue, the famous tennis player opened up to the magazine about everything from impending motherhood to her career. “I don’t think my story is over yet,” she told the publication, adding that she’s already preparing for her return in January 2018, exactly one year after learning she was pregnant. After feeling ill a week before the Australian Open earlier this year, Serena says that a friend convinced her to take a pregnancy test. Much to her surprise, the result was positive, as were the five tests she took after that.

Even though it was a big shock at first – she planned on winning Wimbledon for the third year in a row – she does have a great support system. Serena reveals that Alexis, who is the cofounder of Reddit, immediately got on a flight when she told him to come to Melbourne without reason. While she’ll be the first person to admit she has no clue how to raise a baby, it sounds like she has a great partner to do it with. “I felt like a door had been opened to a person who made me want to be my best self,” Alexis said about proposing to Serena. “I find myself just wanting to be better by simply being around her because of the standard she holds.”

Despite everything she has going on, Serena still makes sure to clap back at trolls on social media. After slamming a tennis player for racist comments about her unborn baby in April, she fired back at retired tennis legend John McEnroe in June after he said that if she played on the men’s circuit, she’d be “like No. 700” in the world. “Dear John, I adore and respect you but please please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based,” she said on Twitter. “I’ve never played anyone ranked ‘there’ nor do I have time. Respect me and my privacy as I’m trying to have a baby. Good day sir.”

A 24-Year-Old Soldier Made History as the First Woman to Captain the Queen’s Guard

Megan Couto, a 24-year-old Canadian soldier, has made history as the first woman to become captain of the Queen’s Guard at Buckingham Palace. On Monday, Megan, who is taking up the role with her unit, The Second Battalion, Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, marked her first day of commanding the troops that guard Queen Elizabeth II and other royal residences in London. Ahead of her big march from Wellington Barracks to the palace – she led nearly 40 male soldiers through the changing of the guard – Megan told Sky News that she was “not feeling too nervous.” “We’ve practiced enough and all the guys have been through their paces,” she said. “I’ve just to focus on saying the right commands.” She added: “I’m just focusing on doing my job as best I can and staying humble,” and “Any of my peers would be absolutely delighted to be captain of the Queen’s Guard and I’m equally honored.”

It’s a huge accomplishment for Megan, as women were banned from taking ground close combat roles at the palace until July 2016. Of the more inclusive new rules, Defense Secretary Sir Michael Fallon said that he has “always wanted roles in our armed forces to be determined by ability not gender,” adding, “By opening all combat roles to women, we will continue to build on these successes and improve the operational capability of our military.” Way to go, Captain Couto!

10 Things You Should Know About Steph and Ayesha Curry’s Envy-Inducing Relationship

Stephen and Ayesha Curry may be one of the NBA’s most famous couples now, but back in the day they were just two teenagers brought together by their faith. Both devout Christians, the couple first met at their church youth group in Charlotte, NC – but it wasn’t exactly love at first sight for the Canada native. “We were just kids,” Ayesha told People in May. “He was the cute boy at church that all of the girls were obsessed with, so I made a generalization that maybe he wasn’t for me.” On the flip side, Steph harbored a crush. “I always had my eye on her, but I got a little shaken, for sure,” he told Parents magazine back in June 2016. Here are more fun facts about Steph and Ayesha’s slam-dunk romance.

  1. They reconnected a few years after their first meeting. Ayesha was acting and modeling in LA while Steph was playing basketball for Davidson College in North Carolina. The two met up in LA when he was in town for the ESPY Awards – Ayesha admitted that she “didn’t know what the ESPYs were” and generally didn’t know what Steph did at the time, which he revealed was “pretty refreshing.”
  2. Ayesha originally wasn’t too keen on dating an athlete, which is probably why she turned Steph down for a date at first. “My parents found this paper from my high school theater class where you had to write down what you wanted in a significant other,” she told People. “At the bottom, it said, ‘No athletes, because they’re arrogant.'”
  3. Their first date was admittedly “cheesy.” Ayesha finally agreed to go out with Steph after he reached out via Facebook. She picked him up (in a 1995 Astro van!) and they had a “cheesy” first date that included chai tea lattes and Marilyn Monroe impersonators on Hollywood Boulevard. Steph even spent all the money he had on him to impress Ayesha by purchasing a pair of Oakley sunglasses. Despite her “no athlete” rule, Steph’s personality softened her up. “He was so funny and silly. . . the absolute opposite of what I thought he was going to be,” she said.
  4. And their first kiss was reminiscent of a major movie. Steph and Ayesha officially began dating in August 2008. The couple had their first smooch in the driveway of Steph’s parents’ house in Charlotte. It happened “in the rain, like The Notebook.”
  5. Three years later, Steph proposed to Ayesha in the same spot. “The plan was to act like we were going to a family cookout,” he told Parents. “So we pulled up to the house, and I stopped in the middle of the driveway, got down on my knee, and went into my spiel. Little did I know the whole family was looking out the window, videotaping the moment.”

A post shared by Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) on Dec 6, 2012 at 2:11pm PST

  1. They were married young. Steph and Ayesha got married in 2011 when they were 23 and 22, respectively. Of their decision, Steph has said, “I knew I had found the right woman, and I wanted to start a life with her.”
  2. Ayesha had to put her acting plans on hold. “Shortly after we got married, I found out we were pregnant with [their daughter] Riley. She was a borderline honeymoon baby,” Ayesha said. “That became my next move. I struggled with that for a while.”
  3. They have matching tattoos. Ayesha reportedly got the ink first, and Steph followed with a tattoo of two arrows pointing at each other. “This signifies that the past is behind us and the future is in front of us, so we stay in the middle, in the moment,” he has said. They even have a pregame ritual: “I smack my tattoo and she does the same.”
  4. In 2015, they expanded their family. Steph and Ayesha welcomed their second daughter Ryan in July 2015, and the little one made an adorable public appearance with her sister at the NBA Championships in June 2017.
  5. But they’re taking a breather before growing even more. On having a third baby, the couple has “agreed to press pause and then reassess in a year or so.” Ayesha has said of Steph: “He’d have three more kids right now if he could.”

Barack Obama and His Girls Kick Off Their Summer Vacation With Some Whitewater Rafting

Is anyone having more fun than Barack Obama post-presidency? The former president and his family officially kicked off their 10-day vacation in Bali, Indonesia on Friday. The country holds a special place in Barack’s heart given that he lived there for several years as a child.
