Jennifer Lopez Comments On Ben Affleck's Fashion Sense, Bedroom Skills

On the heels of the Season 2 premiere of her TV series, Shades of Blue, Jennifer Lopez made the headlines when it was rumored that she and her ex, Ben Affleck got back together. This rumor has been shot down but that did not stop the sexy singer from sharing bits of information of her high-profile romance with the Oscar-winning actor. Jennifer Lopez has just made a comment about her romance with Ben Affleck, particularly his bedroom skills and his taste in fashion. On the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the 47-year-old former American Idol judge was asked who performs better in bed: musicians, actors, or singers. Lopez’s response was somehow a form of subtle shade thrown at Affleck. “I have to say that, in my limited experience, anybody involved in music, so I would say singers and dancers. Not only did she make a comment about who was better in bed, but she also revealed to Cohen that she helped give Affleck a fashion makeover during the time they were dating. She narrated how she would instruct Ben to put on a suit and style his hair in a particular way because he is a big movie star. The “On the Floor” singer even takes credit for Affleck’s “good fashion moments” at that time. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck at the 75th Annual Academy Awards.

The “Ain’t Your Mama” singer had her share of leading men, including Ralph Fiennes and Matthew McConaughey, for movies Maid in Manhattan and The Wedding Planner, respectively. She was also with Affleck on Jersey Girl and Gigli, but none of the men mentioned stood out as the one who gave her the best kiss on screen. During her appearance on the Today show with Kathie Lee Gifford and Jenna Bush Hager, Lopez revealed that it was Josh Lucas who she considers her best on-screen kiss for their 2005 movie with Morgan Freeman, An Unfinished Life. Despite Ben Affleck not having made it to JLo’s list of favorites, the rumors of them rekindling the romance surfaced out of nowhere. The rumors started when a source for Radar Online said that the two A-listers met for a script meeting. The source shared that the Justice League actor kissed his ex in greeting and she blushed. The insider also revealed that when the two met, the chemistry is still as strong as it was as if they had never broken up. But shortly after the reports made the rounds, Gossip Cop insisted that there is “no truth” to the rumor. The publication confirmed with a reliable source who is close to Affleck and also with Lopez’s representative, both of whom assured that the claims were absurd. Jennifer Lopez did not only face rumors about her reunion with Ben Affleck but also about her relationship with Canadian singer and rapper, Drake. The mother of twins finally addressed the rumors on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, confirming that she is not with Drake. Jennifer Lopez performs onstage with ex-husband Marc Anthony.

Lopez married the singer in 2004 but their marriage ended in 2014. Recently, the Shades of Blue star opened about her ex-husband on The View, letting people know why they are not together. “You know, Marc and I are good how we are right now. There is a reason we’re not together but we’re great friends. We’re parents together and we’re even working on a Spanish-language album together. That has been even better for us because actually, we met working. That’s where we really are magical, when we’re on stage together and stuff like that. That’s where we’re good and so we leave it there.” Despite their split, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez have remained close friends. Marc is currently married to Shannon de Lima.

Kylie Jenner And Kim Kardashian Are At War With Each Other

Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner were at war with each other on their Social media accounts. The two sisters declared their war towards each other when one of the sisters shared a funny filter of the other sister. The two were getting their makeup done together for a photo shoot in which Kim claimed that she wanted to look just like Kylie. Kylie had incited her half sister by sharing an image of her looking silly as well as one of her with a moustache and goatee. Kim was just in her bathrobe as she got her hair done and make up was being done. One of the filters showed Kim’s face looking rather distorted. She was on her phone while Kylie made fun of her older sister. Kim didn’t take the provocation lying down as she finally saw what her sister had done. “Oh, the war has begun…just wait and see what I do to her!” Kim declared. [Image by Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images] She then posted various snaps of her younger sister and declared that the war had begun while Kylie originally hid her face from her sister. Kylie attempted to hide her face with her hand but her sister managed to get her as her make up was being done. She used similar filters to the ones Kylie had used on her face thus make her also have funny distorted looks. She then one-upped her sister by sharing a filter different from the goatee by using a monkey face filter on her sister. Kim acted like she hadn’t posted any snaps of her sister only for Kylie to realize and ask her sister who then said she didn’t know what she was talking about. The two sisters then realized how ridiculous their playful wrath was as they continued to share images of themselves. The two shared snaps of their amazing bodies and showed that they had been getting ready for a photo shoot. Kim x Ky Take Costa Rica ????????

Ever,” the 36-year-old actress added. .@ChrissyMetz says her boyfriend offered to quit @NBCThisisUs for her — Kathie Lee and Hoda (@klgandhoda) March 7, 2017 Chrissy revealed that her motivation behind losing the weight was to become more “proportioned.” She carries most of her weight in her stomach and that makes finding outfits even more challenging.

WWE News: Women's Title Match Set For 'Wrestlemania'

Wrestlemania 33 is now officially less than a month away, and it looks like the card is beginning to shape up. Gears have been set in motion, and now matches are being made, and storylines are being written to support them. On the March 7 episode of Smackdown, it was announced that Alexa Bliss will defend her Smackdown Women’s Championship at the “Show of Shows”. It was during her “Blissertation” that the first ever two-time Smackdown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss claimed that she was the greatest female athlete on the Smackdown roster. The champion also revealed who she would not be facing at Wrestlemania 33. She said she would not be facing Naomi, as she was injured, nor would she be facing Nikki Bella, who was being treated by medics following an attack from The Miz and Maryse. Carmella was also not seen as a viable opponent, as Bliss said she was taking care of James Ellsworth. Bliss then said she would not be facing Becky Lynch either before the Irish superstar interrupted her. [Image by WWE] Later on Natalya arrived and argued that Lynch was not “championship caliber material”, and that Bliss would face her at Wrestlemania, but Bliss denied her. Bliss’s companion Mickie James then grabbed the microphone and said that she would face the champion at Wrestlemania 33, but Bliss also said no to her. Daniel Bryan then came out and said that since Alexa Bliss said she was the best superstar on the roster, she would be defending her title against “every woman available”. “Shane and I have been listening to your ‘Blissertation’ backstage, and if we were grading it, we would have probably given you an ‘F’. But, then you said something that sparked our interest. You claimed to be the greatest female superstar on the entire ‘Smackdown’ women’s roster, and as surprising as this may be, we thought, ‘hmm, maybe she’s right’, but there’s only one way to really find out, and that’s by having you defend your title at ‘Wrestlemania’ against every available woman on the ‘Smackdown’ roster.” Then Bryan claimed to be taking tips from WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long and set up a tag team match. Becky Lynch and Natalya teamed up against Mickie James and Alexa Bliss, but Natalya turned on Lynch, which allowed Bliss to tag herself in and pin Lynch. After the match, Mickie James kicked Bliss and raised the title over her head, announcing her intentions to win the title at Wrestlemania 33. Right now it is currently unclear what the rules of the match are. Whether it will be a battle royal, a championship scramble, an elimination match, or a gauntlet match. It is also uncertain just who will be competing. Aside from Lynch, Bliss, James, and Natalya, no other participants have been announced. Carmella may later be added to the match. Some also suspect that former female superstars may take part in the match. Names such as Kelly Kelly and Victoria are being thrown around as possible participants, as they have been rumored to appear at Wrestlemania 33. [Image by WWE] Wrestlemania 33 will be the first time both the Raw and Smackdown Women’s Championships will be defended at a Wrestlemania event. The Raw Women’s Championship was contested for, but not defended, at Wrestlemania 32, as it was for the crowning of the inaugural Women’s Champion, while the Smackdown Women’s Champion was only created last August 23 after the brand split. There have been a total of four different reigns split between three superstars. Inaugural champion Becky Lynch won the title at Backlash and held it for 84 days before dropping it to Alexa Bliss at Tables, Ladders, and Chairs. Bliss held the title for 70 days before Naomi won it from her. Just nine days later, Naomi would be forced to vacate the title due to injuries suffered at Elimination Chamber, and Bliss defeated Lynch again to become the first ever two-time Smackdown Women’s Champion. With Bliss set to defend her title, it is sure to be an exciting bout, whether it is on the pre-show or on the main card. [Featured Image by WWE]

WWE Rumors: Bayley Turning Heel Instead of Sasha Banks After 'Wrestlemania 33'

It’s been rumored for some time that Sasha Banks will betray Bayley sooner rather than later and turn heel, but some people are questioning if WWE officials are planning big swerve for the Raw Women’s Champion to turn heel instead of The Boss. Bayley and Sasha have been featured as close friends on WWE television for months now, but the WWE Universe knows it’s only a matter of time before their rivalry is rekindled. As Wrestlemania approaches, the WWE Universe continues to speculate about creative plans for the Raw Women’s Title match. After the post-FastLane edition of Raw, Bayley is set to defend the title against both Charlotte and Sasha Banks in a Triple Threat match. It was reported that Nia Jax is expected to be added to the situation soon, which means WWE officials are planning a Fatal Four Way match for the Women’s Title. Originally, a lot of people assumed Bayley would end Charlotte’s undefeated streak on WWE PPVs and win her first WWE Women’s Championship at Wrestlemania 33. Instead, she won the title on Raw, which was a surprise to many fans. Now, the WWE Universe is waiting for the Bayley vs. Sasha Banks rivalry to begin. [Image by WWE] Vince McMahon is said to be high on Bayley since her main roster debut on WWE television. He recognizes her potential as a babyface with the WWE Universe. In fact, he wants Bayley to be the top female babyface in the company after Wrestlemania 33. Her greatest strength is a lack of attitude, but a world of confidence that can inspire anyone in the WWE Universe regardless of their demographic. That’s a very rare thing. However, some people are noticing a few changes in Bayley’s character after WWE FastLane that have them wondering if a surprising heel turn is being planned for her in the near future. It’s clear that Bayley vs. Sasha Banks is happening at some point after Wrestlemania, but most people are naturally assuming it would be The Boss who would turn heel, which means Bayley could be the more surprising and effective swerve. More specifically, a new report discussed the way Sasha Banks and Bayley were presented during Raw Talk after WWE FastLane. The intent was to show their friendship and natural chemistry, but some people are saying they came off like heels, especially with the way Bayley has been winning matches with Sasha’s help. [Image by WWE] The argument is that Charlotte told Dana Brooke to go to the back, which was a strong face move. However, Bayley won the title match at WWE FastLane after interference from Sasha Banks, which is the exactly how she won the Women’s Title in the first place a few weeks ago. The reality is the majority of WWE fans didn’t see the Raw Talk segment on the WWE Network, but WWE officials need to be more careful in the future. Bayley plays such a clean character with a positive personality on WWE television that it doesn’t take much for the WWE Universe to notice a change in her persona. If WWE officials are planning some kind of a heel turn for Bayley because everyone expects The Boss to betray the latter, Raw Talk may have been something of a trial run to see if the WWE Universe notices and responds to their segment during the show. Of course, some people may be digging too deep at Sasha and Bayley having fun after WWE FastLane. The idea of Bayley turning heel is interesting because most WWE fans would struggle to imagine what that may look like on WWE TV. The WWE Universe will continue to wait for Sasha’s betrayal, but Bayley turning heel is an option as well. [Featured Image by WWE]

WWE News: Daniel Bryan Drops Major Tease About In-Ring Future On 'Talking Smack'

Daniel Bryan hasn’t wrestled in a WWE ring since the April 16, 2015, edition of SmackDown, but his comments on last night’s edition of Talking Smack have the WWE Universe buzzing. Bryan and The Miz have engaged in several verbal spats on the SmackDown Live post show, including this infamous exchange which prompted the YES! Man to walk off the set. The Miz continued his antics last night, accusing Bryan of giving John Cena preferential treatment — Bryan fired back by making fun of The Miz making made-for-television movies. At that point, The Most Must-See WWE Superstar shed light on Bryan’s in-ring career being over because of his concussion issues (via IWNerd). “You want to be a wrestler but you can’t because of your head,” The Miz said. However, it was Bryan’s response that set off a social media firestorm. “I can’t or they won’t let me? We’ll see in a year and a half and see what happens.” As the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported last September, Bryan’s contract does not expire until 2018 (via Wrestling Inc). If Bryan’s comment about a year and a half is accurate, he would likely be free to wrestle for another federation in May or June 2018. The report noted that Bryan’s WWE contract was frozen during his over one-year hiatus from the ring as he tried to recover from concussions. PASSION FOR WRESTLING Tuesday’s comments are far from the first — and likely far from the last — time Bryan has teased an in-ring return, even if it’s not in the WWE. After over a year of inactivity, Bryan made several media appearances throughout 2015 and 2016 speaking candidly on his future. Bryan during his brief reign as WWE champion in 2014. [Image by WWE] “I told [WWE], regardless of them, if they won’t clear me… we’re independent contractors, in theory… and I will wrestle again,” Bryan said on Busted Open in 2015. Bryan, 35, has said on multiple occasions that his personal doctors and several others have cleared him to wrestle. Speaking to ESPN’s Cheat Heat, Bryan explained that WWE held up his return and not the other way around. “The whole problem with this process is getting cleared by the doctors. I’ve been cleared by one doctor in Phoenix, but the WWE doctor is hesitant to clear me. It’s a very complicated situation, that I guess they don’t really want me talking about.” However, it’s WWE’s doctor that refused to clear the former WWE Champion after several evaluations. “The WWE doctor Joe Maroon [is] amazing and highly respected in the concussion field, and if they send me to a third neurologist who’s also highly respected in the concussion field and they say literally no… well, then is it really smart to go against two doctors?” Bryan said to IGN. “I get all fired up… and then I’m like, maybe that’s not the best thing for me and my family going forward.” Bryan has teased potentially working elsewhere, telling the New Paper in Singapore last year that these concussion issues “could be the end of my career in WWE, but I don’t think it will be the end of my career.” Bryan has served as the SmackDown Live general manager alongside commissioner Shane McMahon since last year. [Image by WWE] Even during the aforementioned initial run-in with The Miz on Talking Smack, Bryan said he would return to the WWE, “if they let me.” Since becoming the SmackDown Live general manager, Bryan has been a focal point of the program but never involved to the point of an in-ring return. Despite saying he’s accepted retirement, Bryan’s dreams still involve him inside a wrestling ring “A part of my mind hasn’t accepted it. I wake up sometimes with dreams of wrestling,” Bryan said to The Daily World in June 2016. “This literally happened to me [the night before the speech]. I was in Las Vegas and I flew in. I woke up this morning from a dream where I was going to wrestle and I’m not. I have to remind myself at times.” [Featured Image by WWE]

'The Flash' Recap: Boss Andrew Kreisberg Dishes On 'The Wrath Of Savitar'

Warning: This article contains spoilers for The Flash. Emotions were running high on The Flash, as “The Wrath of Savitar” employed the age-old story mechanic of time travel and altering the present to save a better future, only, in this case, it seems Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen had more than his share of trouble in preserving a happy future. Taking a look back at The Flash via a brief recap seems to gives greater insight into the idea that the future may be set after all and everything Barry Allen does is exactly what he was destined to do. Executive producer and co-creator of The Flash adds credence to this idea of Fate having ultimate dominion over life and death, as he provides insight into what tonight’s twists mean for the future of Barry and Iris on The Flash. The Flash Recap: Savitar’s Prophecy Fuels A Shocking Turn Of Events ‘The Flash’ puts wedding bells on hold for Barry Allen and Iris West. [Image by CW] Tonight’s aptly named episode of The Flash, “The Wrath of Savitar,” started out with a vision of the future and the fear of what may happen if a prophecy shared by Savitar does come to pass, according to Comicbook. The events of tonight’s installment of The Flash spun out of control, almost from the moment Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) announced their engagement. Although most of Team Flash were happy for the couple, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) saw through to Barry’s true motives for proposing and called him out on it. Wally confronts Barry with the idea that he was hoping to sideline a future revealed in a previous episode of The Flash, in which Gustin’s character sees a future in which Iris is killed and in which she isn’t wearing an engagement ring. Wally forces Barry to confront the possibility that he only proposed to change that future and defeat a prophecy shared by Savitar. “One shall betray you, one shall fall, one will suffer a fate far worse than death,” Savitar had predicted of Team Flash. Angered by the way in which Wally forces him to face himself, Barry displaces his anger with himself and redirects it at Wally, possibly creating an irreparable rift in their friendship. Later in “The Wrath of Savitar,” it seems all of Barry’s efforts were for nothing, as Iris overhears a discussion about his motives for proposing and understandably feels hurt and betrayed by the news. She tells Barry that she won’t marry anyone just to be saved from harm. Things come to a head on The Flash, when Wally uses The Philosopher’s Stone to open up a portal to the Speed Force with the intention of confronting Savitar. Instead, he’s sucked into the Speed Force with Savitar being ejected moments later. Barry confronts Savitar, who then reveals that Wally is trapped forever in the Speed Force. Barry doesn’t take this news well, attacking Savitar and leading to an ill-matched fight. Just after Savitar stabs Barry, he gets one lucky shot, severing his foe’s sword appendage. “The Wrath of Savitar” ends with Barry getting patched up and Team Flash feeling hopeless by the thought of getting Wally back to their reality. Andrew Kreisberg Dishes On What This Week’s Episode Of The Flash Means For Barry And Iris ‘The Flash’ boss Andrew Kreisberg hints that all may not be lost for Wally West. [Image by CW] Speaking of Savitar’s prophecy, The Flash showrunner tells Entertainment Weekly that the predictions are starting to come to pass with one of The Flash‘s team being subjected to a “fate worse than death” and the team’s Judas being revealed. At one point, Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) begins to suspect she is the double agent, particularly after she feels compelled to steal a piece of the Philosopher’s Stone. That just leaves the one to fall and Kreisberg suggests that might be predicting Iris’ own demise. Andrew says the prophecy is hardest on Joe (Jesse L. Martin), because he’s the one of the group on The Flash who lacks any supernatural abilities. He’s just a cop with a strong moral code and little else. “But how does this simple man, who doesn’t have these powers, fight the future? That’s the thing that really starts to weigh on this triumvirate,” says The Flash showrunner. Kreisberg also reveals that Savitar had set things in motion with his prophecy for the sole purpose of turning Wally into a flash and getting him to take his place in the Speed Force. Only by sacrificing another could Savitar free himself. The Flash executive producer hints that Wally may not be lost forever, but it will mean sending Barry Allen in to retrieve him and that, says Andrew, will be unlike any of Barry’s previous journeys into the Speed Force. “Last time, in a way, it was like he went to heaven, and this time it’s more like going to hell — it’s more about descending deeper and deeper into levels of hell,” says The Flash showrunner. “We get a little bit more about the Speed Force mythology and speedsters’ connection to it.” The next episode of The Flash airs on Tuesday, March 14 on the CW network.

'Dragon Ball Super' Analysis: Tournament Of Power Rules, Predictions, And More

One of the most notable things about the premise of the Universe Survival Arc is how Dragon Ball Super could deal with the numerous matches that are set to happen in the Tournament of Power. After all, with 80 fighters from eight universes participating in the grand competition, fans of the series were quite apprehensive about the length of time it would take to cover all the fights in the tournament. As revealed in Dragon Ball Super Episode 81, however, the Grand Priest and the Omni King have come up with an excellent idea to address the number of matches that would be held in the Tournament of Power. For the first time in a Dragon Ball anime, a grand tournament would be held in the style of a 10-person Battle Royale, where all eight teams from the participating universes would be fighting each other simultaneously for 100 takks (about 48 minutes in Earth time), according to noted DBS source GojiitaAF. The winning team of the Tournament of Power would be the group with the most number of participants left after the time limit is over. The grand tournament could also end when there is only one fighter left standing. The Tournament of Power also includes a number of stipulations. Among these is a limitation to the fighters’ flying abilities, which would most likely make the grand match very interesting. Apart from this, Bukujutsu, the art of using Ki to levitate oneself, would also be limited. As such, the Tournament of Power would require its participants to battle using their raw power and skill alone. Of course, considering that the competition would be a battle royale, teamwork and tactics would also be extremely important. Overall, the premise of the Tournament of Power, at least in its scope, is something that is very unique in the Dragon Ball franchise. Over the course of the franchise’s three-decade run, most tournaments have been akin to traditional WWE matches, where one fighter battles another in a one-on-one bout. This time around, however, the Tournament of Power would allow the anime to present a massive battle that is both epic in scope and intensity. Predictions for the Tournament of Power are abounding, but speculations are high that Universe 7 and Universe 11 might very well be the final participants in the grand battle. While unconfirmed, this particular development has been teased greatly in the anime’s new opening theme, which prominently featured Goku and an unknown fighter from the Pride Troopers (who are from Universe 11) fighting toe-to-toe. Apart from Universe 11, speculations are also high that Universe 6, which is governed by Beerus’ twin brother Champa, would also play a pretty prominent role. Of course, the universe where the female LSSJ would compete for would most likely play a significant role in the grand battle, especially since the character would, in a lot of ways, allow Broly, one of the franchise’s most iconic, non-canonical characters, to be made official. Apart from this, the universe where the first real female Super Saiyan would come from will most likely be significant in the DB franchise as a whole. Overall, the Tournament of Power is gearing up to be one of, if not the most epic Dragon Ball saga to date. So far, it appears that even the production of the anime is not taking any chances, as the quality of the animation has been consistently bumped for the last few weeks now. The music and the dialogue have been pretty satisfactory as well, which shows that the producers of the anime are definitely taking their time in ensuring that the Universe Survival Arc becomes an unprecedented success. Dragon Ball Super would be taking a break this coming Sunday, March 12. While the reasons for the weeklong hiatus remain unknown, it has been confirmed that DBS would be coming back on March 19.

Bella The Hummingbird's First Egg Hatches: Watch Live Cam [Video]

Bella is a hummingbird from LaVerne, California, who is an internet star in her own right. Bella’s story dates back to 2005 when she built a nest on private property. The property owner watched Bella build the nest in a ficus tree, lay two eggs, incubate them, and then raise the babies to fledge. The owner was overjoyed at the sight and thought that would be the end of the hummingbird experience. Surprisingly, Bella returned to the nest and raised another brood, then continued to come back. The property owner decided to live stream the event and share it with the world. A cam was set up next to the nest and Bella became an internet sensation. She raised another brood and has continued to use the nest. Now, in 2017, Bella is back at work and on March 7, 2017, the first of two hummingbird eggs hatched. You may watch Bella the hummingbird’s live cam below, followed by a video showing the newly hatched hummingbird. Watch Bella the Hummingbird Live Cam Bella the Hummingbird: First Egg Hatches Bella has her own Facebook page and many of her monumental events are shared via photos and videos. Here are photos of Bella’s nest with the two eggs before the hatch. Hummingbirds are very small birds and the nest is approximately the size of half a golf ball. The eggs are approximately the size of Jelly Belly jellybeans. Bella laid the first egg on Feb. 18, 2017, and the second egg on Feb. 20, 2017. Hatch time is approximately two weeks (15-18 days) from the time the second egg was laid. As Bella’s baby hatched on March 7, 2017, she is right on time. Bella continues to prove she’s a dutiful mother and has carefully devoted her attention to the eggs and her new chick. Last May, Bella built a nest in a different tree that was in a location ill-suited for a web cam. The owner did create a video of Bella in the nest that highlights just how small Bella and the nest truly are. Fortunately for Bella’s fans, she used the nest in the ficus tree this season and the events are live streamed. Watch the video from May 2016 where Bella built a nest in a Tupidanthus tree. Here are some more photos from Feb. 2017, when Bella returned to the nest and laid the eggs. One viewer watching the live cam captured a photo of Bella looking in on her newly hatched chick. You can see that photo below. Bella’s first baby has hatched! Join our #hatchwatch at Snapshot by Eryan #hummingbirdcam — (@exploreorg) March 7, 2017 also shared a wonderful video taken from the live cam that highlights the newborn chick’s first moments in the nest after hatching. As Bella has one remaining egg, hatch watch continues and there is great anticipation for the second chick’s arrival. Bella and her chicks are Allen’s hummingbirds. Full-grown adults are approximately 3 to 3.5 inches in height. You can find more information about Allen’s hummingbirds at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s All About Birds page. Allen’s hummingbirds are native to California. Bella typically lays two eggs each season though she has laid only one egg in the past. The Allen’s hummingbird doesn’t migrate, and this is part of the reason why she has returned to the same nesting tree. Chicks fledge the nest approximately 23-28 days after hatch. The upcoming weeks should promise lots of exciting moments for Bella and her chicks as they grow, get their feathers, then take their first flight. Nesting season can run from November until June. Bella the hummingbird has one of the most popular birding cams streaming live online. You can tune in 24/7, but since Bella lives in California, you’ll find the best viewing hours run simultaneously with daylight hours on the Pacific coast.

Howard Stern Show: Lance Armstrong Dishes On Doping Scandal, Sheryl Crow, Oprah

The Howard Stern Show is well-known for its raw and revealing interviews, and Monday’s visit with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong did not disappoint. Stern asked the tough questions, and Armstrong was candid in sharing his thoughts about a number of compelling topics. Armstrong discussed his use of PEDs (performance enhancing drugs) with Stern, which after winning the Tour de France seven consecutive times from 1999-2005, led to Armstrong being stripped of his Tour de France titles in 2012, as described by the New York Times. One of Armstrong’s biggest challenges was reconciling his public admission of cheating with his children. “That’s not a one-time conversation. The older kids were old enough to kind of live it with me and there was that conversation and there was therapy.” Armstrong went on to explain that his younger children are now old enough to understand what happened in his past, and they are hearing more and more from peers about their father’s missteps. Armstrong called repairing his relationship with his children “a process.” Sheryl Crow and Lance Armstrong together at a media event in 2005. [Image by Kevin Winter/Getty Images] Lance Armstrong and singer Sheryl Crow were once considered a power couple, but once Armstrong’s public scandal hit, things went downhill quickly (per Billboard Magazine). Despite their very public breakup, Armstrong maintains that Crow was a good and supportive partner during their time together. “It was a good ride. She’s a great lady. Obviously it didn’t work out, but I think and I hope she’s happy,” Armstrong shared with Stern. “I’m happy. It’s tough to pull it off. I mean, how many (celebrity) couples have been able to pull it off?” When Lance Armstrong decided to do a sit-down television interview to clear the air regarding his illegal doping activities, he chose TV personality Oprah Winfrey to conduct the interview. In retrospect, Armstrong feels that he did the interview too soon after his admission of drug use to further his cycling career. He also thinks that he shared too much “shocking information” in that initial interview.

According to USA Today, Armstrong was very open and honest when Oprah asked him some probing questions about the coverup he engaged in once allegations of PED use came to light. “(The coverup was) a mythic, perfect story, but it was one big lie. I will spend the rest of my life trying to earn back trust and apologize to people.” Howard Stern discussed a few other saucy items with Lance Armstrong on Stern’s national radio program. Armstrong divulged that he hated cycling for three or four years after the scandal broke, because of its role in the hardship that came out of his wrongdoing with performance enhancing drugs. Armstrong also told Stern that he never knew his biological father, and now that his father has passed away, he doesn’t know how that situation will impact him as he gets older.

Never shying away from scatological humor, Stern asked Armstrong how he urinated during cycling competitions that kept him on a bike for hours at a time. Armstrong revealed that all professional racers know how to urinate off to the side while riding, and it is usually done when there are no spectators around. He stated that your cycling teammates push you from behind so you can continue racing while “doing your business.” Howard Stern knows what people truly want to know about celebrities, even if some of those things are very personal, cringe-inducing or irreverent. Stern was able to get Lance Armstrong to talk about some sensitive subjects when it came to his rise and fall as a cyclist, his romance with Sheryl Crow and his heavily-publicized interview with Oprah Winfrey, among other things. Stern may be getting up in years, but he still knows how to encourage his guests to open up about their personal and professional lives in a way that few other media personalities can.
