Jeff Goldblum defends Woody Allen: ‘I would consider working with him again’

Jeff Goldblum has come to Woody Allen’s defense, saying he’d gladly work with him again because there’s a “presumption of innocence until proven guilty.”

The “Jurassic Park” star voiced support for the embattled director — who’s long been accused of sexually abusing his adoptive daughter Dylan Allen — in a new interview with the UK’s iNews.

“I think there is a presumption of innocence until proven guilty,” Goldblum said. “I know I enjoyed working with him many years ago and I sat in with his band once too.”

Goldblum worked with Allen on the 1977 film “Annie Hall.”

He added in the interview published Wednesday, “Even though I feel like this cultural shift [the #MeToo movement] is very, very positive and long overdue and I support it wholeheartedly and take it very seriously, I also admire his body of work. So I would consider working with him again, until I learned something more.”

Fans were quick to pile on.

“jeff goldblum defending woody allen is just further proof that even the nicest of men can be disappointments and that in itself is exactly the issue with hollywood,” one person wrote.

Others were tweeting that Goldblum was “canceled.”

The 83-year-old filmmaker saw much of Hollywood’s elite turn their backs on him after the molestation allegations resurfaced in 2017.

Amazon also backed out of a four-film deal with Allen in wake of the renewed scandal, prompting him to sue.

Jeff Brazier removes his wedding ring amid marital problems with wife

Jeff Brazier removes his wedding ring as he battles marital problems with wife Kate Dwyer just one year on from tying the knot

He recently admitted to having marital problems with wife Kate Dwyer.   

And, Jeff Brazier was seen without his wedding band on his left hand, in a video uploaded to the Vanarama Twitter page last Tuesday (October 22nd). 

The presenter, 40, and his wife are apparently working through their issues after it was revealed that they had decided to unfollow each other on Instagram.

No ring! Jeff Brazier, 40m was seen without his wedding band on his left hand, in a video uploaded to the Vanarama Twitter page last Tuesday (October 22nd)

Jeff, who is father to Bobby, 16, and Freddie, 15, from his relationship with the late Jade Goody, was spotted without his ring while discussing his sporting predictions for the brand.

With his hands front and centre during his Twitter presentation, the absence of his wedding band was clear.    

MailOnline has contacted Jeff Brazier’s representatives for comment. 

This notable absence of his wedding ring comes after his spokesman confirmed he and wife Kate – who he wed last year – had been having marital problems.

Gone: With his hands front and centre during his sports predictions presentation on Twitter, the absence of his wedding band was clear

Sad news: Worried fans noticed they had ‘unfollowed’ each other on Instagram

The Sun reported that worried fans had noticed that the couple, who tied the knot last year, had unfollowed one another on social media. 

A spokesperson for TV presenter Jeff told MailOnline at the time, that the couple are still together, despite any problems they might be facing.  

He said: ‘There is categorically no split between Jeff and Kate. We’re slightly bewildered how the story has come about. 

‘However, they have had some difficulties but they are doing their utmost to work through them together and will continue to do so in private.’

The couple have not been pictured together since August, when Jeff shared pictures of them on a trip to Manchester with his sons Bobby and Freddie.     

 A spokesperson MailOnline: ‘There is categorically no split. However, they have had some difficulties but they are doing their utmost to work through them together’

Troubles: The couple recently unfollowed one another on social media 

The boys are from Jeff’s romance with Jade Goody, who sadly passed away from cancer ten years ago, when she was just aged 27. 

Jeff and Kate tied the knot in a romantic Portuguese cliff-top wedding ceremony in September last year.

They announced their engagement in October 2017, with the TV star revealing he had sweetly asked the approval of his sons with late reality TV star Jade Goody. 

Speaking to HELLO! magazine, ahead of the wedding, Jeff gushed: ‘I couldn’t be happier. This isn’t just any wedding, this is a really special one.’

Jeff proposed to his girlfriend of five years in Ibiza, after seeking permission from his children in October 2017.

Bond: Kate is very close to Bobby and Freddie who clearly love her very much 

Jeff revealed: ‘I told her I loved her, and had been thinking about this for a while. I pulled the box with the ring out from my back pocket and asked if she would marry me. It was a very special moment.’ 

Last June, Jeff told MailOnline that Kate was a wonderful stepmother to his boys. 

He said: ‘Kate has adjusted very well now to becoming a step mum and what it entails.  

‘And the sacrifices that have to be made in order to give the children what they need first and for most.

‘We spend some lovely family time together as the four of us. I personally love it when Kate does things with the boys when I’m not around.’    

Remembered: Earlier this year, Jeff marked what would have been his late ex Jade’s 38th birthday with a throwback snap of her with their two sons Freddie and Bobby

Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin joins forces with Nasa to land first woman on the moon

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has teamed up with Nasa in a bid to land the first woman on the moon

His firm Blue Origin will work with aerospace giants Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Draper to design a spacecraft capable of carrying out this historic mission.

Earlier this year, Nasa pledged to land a female astronaut on the moon in five years’ time as part of a new programme called Artemis.

It’s hoped that seeing the first woman land on the moon will inspire a new generation of young girls to work in the space industry.

‘National challenges call for a national response,’ said Bob Smith, CEO of Blue Origin.

‘We are humbled and inspired to lead this deeply committed team that will land NASA astronauts on the Moon.

‘Combining our partners’ heritage with our advance work on the Blue Moon lunar lander and its BE-7 engine, our team is looking forward to working with Nasa in support of the Artemis program.’

It’s hoped that the mission will be complete by 2025 – a massively ambitious target.

Earlier this year, Nasa administrator Jim Bridenstein said: ‘I have an 11-year-old daughter and I want her to be able to see herself in the same way that our current very diverse astronaut corps sees itself.

Blue Origin will be ‘prime contractor’ and lead on program management, systems engineering and safety assurance.

It will also provide the ‘Descent Element’ part of the craft that’s based on its Blue Moon lunar lander and BE-7 engine.

Lockheed Martin will develop the reusable Ascent Element vehicle and leads crewed flight operations and training.

Northrop Grumman will build the Transfer Element vehicle that brings the landing system down towards the moon whilst Draper will work on descent guidance and provides flight avionics.

‘Lockheed Martin has been honored to help NASA explore space for more than 50 years, providing deep space robotic missions, planetary landers, space shuttle heritage and the Orion exploration spacecraft,” said Rick Ambrose, executive vice president, Lockheed Martin Space.

‘We value Blue Origin’s thoughtful approach to developing human-rated flight systems, and are thrilled to be part of a national team with this mix of innovation and experience. We look forward to safely and sustainably returning our nation to the surface of the Moon by 2024.’

Jeff Lewis' tentative custody agreement with ex

Jeff Lewis’ tentative custody agreement with ex Gage Edward has crumbled: ‘This guy is going to torture me for the rest of my life’

Jeff Lewis and his ex Gage Edward’s tentative custody agreement over their two-year-old daughter Monroe has gone under following a cancelled mediation, according to a source via People. 

The former Flipping Out star opened up about the feud on Tuesday’s episode of his SiriusXM show Jeff Lewis Live. 

Lewis, 49, was partnered with Edward, 34, for 10 years before their split in February. 

Coupled: Jeff Lewis and his ex Gage Edward’s tentative custody agreement over their two-year-old daughter Monroe has gone under following a cancelled mediation, according to a source via People 

The two had agreed on a temporary shared legal custody agreement in August, but now tensions are rising as they proceed to negotiate with lawyers and between themselves.

‘I have begged him to try to work this out together, but what happens is, sometimes, in all honesty, I feel like I’m co-parenting my child with a child,’ Lewis said of Edward.

He continued: ‘On Sunday, I literally put my face in my hands and thought, “This guy is going to torture me for the rest of my life. I’m a prisoner.”‘ 

Feud: The two had agreed on a temporary shared legal custody agreement in August, but now tensions are rising as they proceed to negotiate with lawyers and between themselves

Lewis and Edward were set to undertake a private mediation in front of a judge on Oct. 3 to set a permanent custody agreement, but decided to settle things out of court instead, according to the source.

‘They have tried for two months now to negotiate custody since the original temporary order was put in place,’ the source said. 

Lewis has called Edward a ‘good dad’ on a previous episode of Jeff Lewis Live, but on Tuesday he redacted his praise.

Happier times: Lewis and Edward were set to undertake a private mediation in front of a judge on Oct. 3 to set a permanent custody agreement, but decided to settle things out of court instead, according to the source

‘Whatever he did to me, I can get over,’ Lewis said. ‘Here’s the problem: I don’t believe that he always put our child first. 

‘I don’t believe he always considered our child’s well-being and what was best for her, and for that, I can never forgive him.’

Lewis has accused Edward in the past of not providing a suitable home for their daughter following their separation, even going so far as to say his new apartment ‘looks like a prison.’ 

Battle: Lewis has accused Edward in the past of not providing a suitable home for their daughter following their separation, even going so far as to say his new apartment ‘looks like a prison’

He also made the claim that halving custody ’50/50 was not the best for Monroe.’ 

Lewis said: ‘For her best interest, I have been fighting for the majority of the custody.

‘I have the house, I have the infrastructure, I have the playroom, the pool, I’ve got the backyard. I’ve got the nanny, the housekeeper, and everything. Plus, all of her classes and her school are within two miles of my house.’ 

He continued: ‘I have made the choice to live in Sherman Oaks. I have made the choice to live in this house 150 percent for my child. Every day – everything I do – she’s on my mind 24/7.’

Jeff Lewis Live airs weekdays at 12 p.m. ET on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy.

Teen Mom turned porn star Farrah Abraham takes selfie with Jeff Bezos

Teen Mom turned porn star Farrah Abraham takes selfie with Jeff Bezos at Emmys as she tells $110 billion Amazon CEO: ‘Let’s do a deal for my biopic!’

She has already evolved from reality star to porn star.

And now Farrah Abraham has her eyes on a deal with a man with three commas and 12-digits to his name. 

The 28-year-old former Teen Mom star took to Instagram on Sunday night to share a selfie with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos from the 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

The 55-year-old businessman – with the reported net worth of over $110 billlion – happily posed for the snap as Farrah suggested they work on a deal for her biopic. 

It was a big night for Bezos as his shows Fleabag and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel had very successful nights and the star of two porn films is hoping to cash in on Amazon Prime Video’s award-winning formula.

She captioned the image: ‘You know I’m watching primetime on @amazonprimevideo congrats @jeffbezos and I hope to be in an amazon original soon ! let’s do a deal for my bio pic !  Cheers #emmyawards’

Bezos is currently in a relationship with television personality Lauren Sanchez as it remains unclear if the 49-year-old Fight Club star was in attendance at the ceremony.

Ladylove: Bezos is currently in a relationship with television personality Lauren Sanchez (pictured together at Wimbledon in London back in July) as it remains unclear if the 49-year-old Fight Club star was in attendance at the ceremony

As if rubbing shoulders with the wealthiest man in the world already wasn’t enough, Farrah shocked once more as she took her seat next to Hollywood royalty, Hugh Grant, at the gala event.

Bezos made his new relationship public at the Wimbledon tennis tournament in London back in July just six months after his split from his wife of 25 years MacKenzie following news of his affair with Sanchez.

Sanchez and Hollywood super-agent husband of 14 years Patrick Whitesell both filed for divorce back in early April.

Looking in her element as she attended the awards with countless A-listers, the former Teen Mom star smiled at Hugh, 59, from her seat next to his wife, Anna Eberstein.

Wow: As if rubbing shoulders with the wealthiest man in the world already wasn’t enough, Farrah shocked once more as she took her seat next to Hollywood royalty, Hugh Grant, at the gala event

Hugh was nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie category for his role in A Very English Scandal. 

His wife Anna beamed as well as she took in the awards show, sandwiched between Hugh and Farrah.

It is unknown why Farrah was in attendance, although she did mention on Instagram that she was developing a ‘biopic feature film.’ 

Hugh and Anna, who tied the knot in May 2018, have three children together; he has two from a previous relationship.

Farrah attended the Emmy Awards in a cream beaded dress; the number featured a halter neckline with a flash of her cleavage from the center cut-out.

Her appearance comes just weeks after she appeared at the Venice Film Festival; she hit the carpet on August 30 at the J’Accuse screening with her daughter Sophia.

Farrah wore a cream dress that featured silver beading throughout the dress – except for the bottom portion of the skirt.

Farrah made her television debut in 2008 at the age of 17 on MTV’s 16 And Pregnant; she gave birth to daughter Sophia on February 23, 2009.

The father of her child Derek Underwood died in a car accident during filming of the show – one month before Sophia was born.

She went on to star in the spin off series Teen Mom from 2009 until 2012 and then Teen Mom OG from 2015 until she was fired in 2018 by MTV for working on adult films.

Jeff Bezos says Blue Origin lander could refuel using moon ice

Jeff Bezos says his Blue Origin lunar lander could refuel using ICE from the moon

  • Jeff Bezos says his moon lander could use water and ice to fuel its propulsion
  • The lander could separate hydrogen and oxygen from the ice 
  • Those gases would be combined to create fuel for the craft’s engine
  • Water-ice was confirmed to exist beneath the moon’s surface last year
  • Future NASA-funded mining efforts could help unlock that resource in the future

Once billionaire Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin lander makes it to the moon, the Amazon CEO says it won’t have to go very far to re-fuel.

In a space summit in Boston, Bezos told an audience that his somewhat mysterious moon lander will use ice harvested from the lunar surface to create fuel.

‘We know things about the moon now we didn’t know about during the Apollo days,’ Bezos said at the conference as reported by CNBC.  

‘We can harvest that ice and use to make hydrogen and oxygen, which are rocket propellants.’ 

Scroll down for video 

Jeff Bezos says a recently discovered trove of water and ice in the moon’s surface could fuel a lunar lander owned by his company Blue Origin. 

Water ice was first confirmed to be present on the moon last year in a study by NASA and lies mostly within the shaded parts of craters near the moon’s poles. In these locations, the temperature rarely ever exceeds -250 degrees Farenheit. 

That ice could be harvested and converted to rocket fuel using electric power stations aboard the lander, said Bezos. 

The station, powered by solar panels or a nuclear generator would separate the hydrogen and oxygen gas which would eventually be recombined in the rocket’s engine and ignited to create propulsion.   

Bezos also recently announced that the lander’s engine, the BE7, successfully completed its first hotfire test at Marshall Space Flight Center.

‘Data looks great and hardware is in perfect condition. Test went full planned duration – 35 seconds,’ said Bezos on Twitter.  

Blue Origin unveiled its intention to put its high-tech lander, which is big enough to fit several passengers as well as transport cargo to and from the moon’s surface, last month. 

WHAT IS THE BLUE MOON LANDER?

Blue Origin unveiled its lunar lander during a secretive event in May

Jeff Bezos has revealed his space exploration company’s new lunar lander, dubbed Blue Moon. 

The spacecraft is capable of carrying and delivering payloads to the moon’s surface. 

‘This is an incredible vehicle and it’s going to the moon,’ Bezos said. 

Blue Origin has long called out a mission to the moon as one of its foremost priorities and spent the past three years working to develop the craft. 

It harnesses many of the same ‘propulsion, precision guidance, vertical landing and landing gear systems’ utilized by New Shepard, Blue Origin’s rocket meant to ferry humans to the moon.

The craft is equipped with fuel cells to provide ‘kilowatts of power’ that are capable of lasting for long-distance missions. 

Once Blue Moon arrives at its destination, it uses machine learning algorithms to land with precision on the lunar surface.  

Blue Moon can deliver several metric tons of payload to the moon, thanks to its top deck and lower bays, the latter of which will allow for ‘closer access to the lunar surface and off-loading,’ the firm said.

With this technology, Blue Origin hopes it will prepare us to be able to send humans back to the moon as soon as 2024.  

The spacecraft is capable of carrying and delivering payloads to the moon’s surface. ‘This is an incredible vehicle and it’s going to the moon,’ Bezos said

 

The company is among the favorites in an upcoming NASA mission to land humans back on the moon in 2024 for the first time in almost 50 years, receiving multiple contracts from the agency to study and design prototypes for landers, propulsion systems, and more last month. 

Blue Origin’s idea to use water ice to propel its craft may fit in with NASA’s agenda to begin mining the moon’s surface for natural resources.   

Through NASA’s Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program, the agency said it will begin to explore the feasibility of robotic rovers and mining technology that could make space mining a reality.

To do so, it has green-lit two mission concepts this month.

NASA’s next moon mission also plans to establish a permanent base on the moon’s surface from which mining operations could originate.

Jeff Lewis, Gage Edward Hired Lawyers in 'Really Ugly' Custody Battle

Next steps. Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward have hired lawyers to discuss custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Monroe.

The Flipping Out star, 49, and his ex-boyfriend talked for three hours with their attorneys about a single week of visitation, Lewis admitted on the Tuesday, June 18, episode of his SiriusXM radio show, Jeff Lewis Live. “It was never resolved,” he said. “Am I going to spend $6,000? a week to talk about visitation? It was insane.”

The Bravo personality went on to say that his ex “came in hot, and it was really ugly.”

“[Edward] couldn’t keep it together. He was so angry and irrational that they had to move him to another conference room,” Lewis admitted. “Unfortunately, during breakups you see people for who they really are. The problem is, when you hurt each other this way, it’s very hard to get through it. Sometimes people do such terrible things and say such terrible things.”

That being said, the California native would love to “just sit down and talk” with Edward. “Not only could it be resolved, it could be better than what the courts will say,” he said.

The former couple welcomed their daughter via surrogate in October 2016, splitting just over two years later.

“This has been a long time coming,” Lewis said on his show in January. “We’ve been in separate rooms for a very long time … We’ve had a lot of discussions about it … It was kind of like a roommate situation.”

Last month, Monroe’s parents were “in a good place.” In fact, the reality star said that they didn’t need any attorneys at the time. “[Edward] understands that we need some kind of structure,” Lewis explained on his show, which was why they decided to go over each week of visitation ahead of time.

Us Weekly has reached out to Gage Edward for comment.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’s generous wife MacKenzie shames the stinking rich – The Sun

STORIES this week about two unimaginably rich women were striking because of their parallels – and their differences.

Both women’s wealth came from their husbands. Both have more money than they know what to do with.

But what they did with it could be the stuff of a morality tale.

Zamira Hajiyeva is the wife of a jailed Azerbaijani banker, and a mum of three, who spent £16million at Harrods.

That included £5.75million on jewellery and £30,000 on Godiva chocolates — in one day.

She also spent £790,000 in one single transaction in the toy department on a Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo Disney makeover experi-ence for her children.

Clearly she felt she had money to burn…  until the chickens came home to roost.

Her extravagant spending was investigated by the National Crime Agency (NCA) following the conviction of her husband on corruption charges.

Mrs Hajiyeva’s husband was head of the state-controlled International Bank of Azerbaijan from 2001 until his resignation in 2015.

He was subsequently sentenced to 15 years in jail by the courts there for embezzlement.

The NCA wanted to establish how the couple could afford to buy an £11.5million Knightsbridge house a short walk from Harrods, and a £10.5million golf club in Ascot.

You can see why there was some explaining to do.

All the jewellery and Godiva chocolates in the world doesn’t necessarily make you happy

 

I bet Zamira’s husband left her in London expecting her to keep a low profile, instead of drawing attention to herself by doing a supermarket sweep in one of the city’s pricier shops.

This story is a good reminder of three things. Firstly, when money falls into some people’s laps it’s a case of “easy come, easy go”. Zamira hadn’t earned it, so she felt free to chuck it away.

Secondly, it’s a reminder that all the jewellery and Godiva chocolates in the world doesn’t necessarily make you happy.

CRIME DOESN'T PAY

And the third thing is, crime really doesn’t pay. She is under investigation, her husband is in prison. It’s just not worth it.

I’m sure their kids would trade all the Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo experiences in the world to have both parents at home with them.

This week also gave us another example of a woman in possession of great wealth. MacKenzie Bezos has come into an estimated £29billion fortune after divorcing Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man.

Her response to coming into so much money is to promise to give at least half of it to charity.

MacKenzie has taken seriously the idea that with great power comes great responsibility

 

Strictly speaking, she didn’t earn that money, it was her hubby who built Amazon. But she sacrificed her career to support his and bring up their four children.

Then Jeff ran off with another woman. The ultimate humiliation.

Yet MacKenzie has maintained her dignity. And her response to her hefty divorce settlement — rather than hitting the shops — has been to sign the Giving Pledge, which encourages the world’s richest people to dedicate a majority of their wealth to charitable causes.

She has taken seriously the idea that with great power comes great responsibility.

'NOTHING SHORT OF ADMIRABLE'

She is nothing short of admirable. Instead of frittering her fortune away on diamonds and chocolates, MacKenzie has chosen to invest it in the world.  What a great gesture.

It’s not just her generosity that I admire, it’s her nature. She knows what is important, what is real and that true wealth is not measured in terms of money alone.

She has acted with dignity and class given the embarrassing situation her ex-husband put his family in with his public infidelity.

She is beautiful on the inside and outside. Jeff Bezos must be a fool to let a woman like this go.

Love your neighbour… or else

ANYONE who has ever had an annoying neighbour will have read with interest about the warring pair embroiled in a four-year battle over who should cut the laurel hedge that separates their homes.

Tensions reached boiling point and police were called after Julie Wayte, 61, was caught on security camera emptying clippings on 37-year-old Lara Acutt’s drive in Newark, Notts, blocking her access.

Oh dear. No doubt there are two sides to this story, as there are to any neighbourly dispute.

But reading about it, I can’t help but hope we all try to rise above petty annoyances and avoid becoming the type of person who dumps hedge clippings on next door’s lawn.

Our family dodged the Love Island bullet

HANDS up who is looking forward to getting stuck into the new series of Love Island.

I know lots of people will be binge-watching it as an antidote to Brexit – and it’s certainly a bit of light relief.

All I can think, though, when I see the line-up of the bodies beautiful getting ready to be on the show, is that our family just dodged a bullet.

My daughter Sophia was asked (again) to do it. She thought it would be fun.

Let’s just say I thought otherwise.

Actor is showing strength

THERE has been a buzz this week about the fact that Game Of Thrones actor Kit Harington has checked himself into rehab, with some people talking about it almost as if that is a weakness.

But his decision should be treated as admirable, rather than a source of gossip.

Imagine the pressure he has been under playing the lead role in the world’s most talked-about TV series. No wonder he has had a bit of a wobble.

Taking responsibility for our mental health is just as important as looking after our physical health – and I’m nothing but impressed that he’s had the strength to do so.

Donovan didn't stop to think

I’VE always thought that Jason Donovan seems like a nice guy, which is backed up by the photos of him helping a woman who’d collapsed in the street when he was out for a jog.

He didn’t think twice about stopping to help.

After all, everybody needs good neighbours (sorry!).

The plane danger of boozers

I CRINGED to read about the drunken British Airways passenger who stormed the galley, smashing crockery and allegedly punching members of the cabin crew – all because they refused to serve her yet another drink.

Emma Langford, 47, was then forcibly restrained in her seat for the rest of the flight from London to Cape Town.

I was on a plane years ago when my kids were small and the guy sitting behind us was very drunk, swearing at people and pulling on the back of my seat.

He was also shouting, and it was getting worse and worse as staff refused to serve him any more alcohol.

In the end the stewards locked him in the toilet. He was arrested when we landed, and looked very sorry for himself.

But it’s a small, fragile space 35,000ft up, and out-of-control passengers are a danger on an aeroplane. There needs to be a zero tolerance approach to this problem.

No doubt Emma Langford will never live down the shame of this, but clearly we can’t rely on regret and remorse to create good behaviour.

I’ve got a very simple solution to this issue. Anyone found drunk on a plane should be banned from flying for life.

We should all doo it like Stacey

I’VE always liked Stacey Dooley, and I’m full of admiration about how she deals with the endless speculation about her relationship with Strictly dancer Kevin Clifton.

In an interview this week, she said: “I don’t let what outsiders think worry me that much.”

Which, whether you are in a high-profile relationship on the TV, or just going about your daily life, is EXACTLY the right attitude.

We should all take a leaf out of Stacey’s book.

If you like yourself, who cares what others think – especially as you don’t even know them.

Jeff Lewis Discusses Visitation Schedule With Ex Gage Edward for Daughter

Making it work. Jeff Lewis opened up about the visitation schedule he and his ex Gage Edward are working on for their 2-year-old daughter, Monroe.

“Right now, it’s good,” the Flipping Out star, 49, said on Thursday, May 2, on his Sirius XM show, Jeff Lewis Live Opens a New Window. . “I don’t think we need attorneys at this point. He understands that we need some kind of structure.”

The reality star said he told his ex-boyfriend, “‘I know that our schedules change weekly, so how about we go over the week ahead of time?’”

Lewis was also clear about not wanting to be around his ex when Edward visits the toddler. “I miss a lot of things about Gage, but one thing I don’t miss is the dramatic mood swings,” he admitted. “I don’t have to deal with that s–t anymore. I don’t want to deal with that s–t anymore. Let the new boyfriend deal with the mood swings. I am done. I am retired from the mood swings.”

He and his ex, who welcomed their baby girl in 2016 via surrogate, split in January after more than eight years together.

“I have to tell you … and I don’t think this is actually bad news, but Gage actually moved out of the house last night,” the interior designer said on his radio show at the time. “This has been a long time coming. We’ve been in separate rooms for a very long time … we’ve had a lot of discussions about it … It was kind of like a roommate situation.”

Lewis added: “Something happened around December, where I was like, ‘S–t, this is getting real.’ … I didn’t help the matter any, at all. I didn’t fight for the relationship, I didn’t work at the relationship.”

The next month, the Bravo personality said he was “going to pursue having another child … with or without” his ex.

Jeff Bezos challenges Amazon rivals to hike minimum wages

Amazon boss Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man, said Thursday he’s game for a bidding war that could raise the minimum wage for millions of workers across the US.

“I challenge our top retail competitors (you know who you are!) to match our employee benefits and our $15 minimum wage,” Bezos wrote in his annual letter to Amazon shareholders.

“Do it! Better yet, go to $16 and throw the gauntlet back at us. It’s a kind of competition that will benefit everyone.”

Target last week said that it would be raising its minimum wage to $13 per hour, with plans to up it to $15 by next year. Rival Walmart, meanwhile, still starts its workers at $11 per hour.

The Amazon CEO’s net worth currently sits at $115 billion, while Walmart’s Jim, Rob and Alice Walton are worth $47 billion, $46 billion and $45 billion, respectively.

Bezos also admitted that Amazon isn’t perfect, and warned shareholders to expect future failures from the e-commerce titan.

As Amazon grows, he writes, so will the size of its “multibillion-dollar failures.” The e-tail giant’s notable flops in the past have included the Fire Phone, which reportedly cost the company $170 million before it scrapped the devices in 2014.

On the other hand, Amazon’s plunge into smart home speakers has reaped a bonanza and left rivals Apple and Google scrambling to catch up.

“If the size of your failures isn’t growing, you’re not going to be inventing at a size that can actually move the needle,” Bezos said. “The good news for shareholders is that a single big winning bet can more than cover the cost of many losers.”

Amazon shares were flat Thursday morning.

Why Jeff Lewis Was Dumped by the New Man He Was Dating After Breakup with Gage Edward

Home designer, Jeff Lewis recently revealed that his relationship with Gage Edward is over. Now they both are reportedly dating other people, but Lewis revealed that things has ended with his new man. Find out the reason why and more.

Jeff Lewis previously revealed he was dating a chiropractor

The Flipping Out star revealed on Jeff Lewis Live that he was back on the dating scene after his breakup with Gage Edward. He said he went on multiple dates with a chiropractor.

“I had my third date with the chiropractor this weekend,” he said according to People. “I can’t say what happened because that’s a boundary that I’m not allowed to cross.”

He revealed the chiropractor had a “rule” that “anything romantic or sexual stays between us.” Instead, he revealed that they fought over who should pay on their second date but Lewis won. The chiropractor then got to pick the place for their third date and paid, but Lewis wasn’t a fan of his choice.

Now he revealed that he got dumped and the reason why.

He was dumped because he talked about their relationship

A post shared by Jeff Lewis (@jljefflewis) on

The radio host revealed that what he did talk about on the show was too much for the chiropractor. He announced they won’t be going on a fourth date because of it.

“I’ve got some bad news for everybody. The chiropractor dumped me last night,” he said according to People. “I tried really hard to put that back together, but it just kept going on and on and on. But I apologized and I was accountable.”

He said that the mystery man felt “like the trust was broken” after Lewis talked about their dates on the show. The host said the man wasn’t thrilled that he talked about not liking his choice of location for their last date.

“He was like, ‘You should have just gone over these issues with me even before you talked about me on the radio,’” revealed Lewis. “But I was thinking about that last night. If I’m talking about it before I talk about it on the radio, it feels like a dress rehearsal to me. I want to just be here and be present and talk about what’s on my mind without rehearsing it.”

Lewis also compared their problems with his relationship to Edward

The fallout from his previous episode also might have raised a red flag for Lewis. He revealed what happened after the argument.

The reality star claimed the chiropractor sent him a text later saying “We will not be going to my apartment after. I’m just making that clear.”

Lewis asked, “So he’s withholding sex. Is that what’s happening?” He continued, “Because I went through that for ten years and I don’t wanna do that anymore. Where somebody gets mad at me and they don’t wanna hook up, so they go into the guest room. I don’t wanna do it. And then they’re mad for like three days.”

There was some more back and forth about whether to reschedule the date or not. Finally, Lewis said, “I got dumped. But what are you gonna do?”

This isn’t the first time Lewis claimed someone else had a problem with what he revealed on his radio show. Lewis previously revealed that Edward felt their breakup was “final” after he announced it on the show. The host later said Edward threatened to hire a lawyer if things didn’t change between them.

Jeff Bezos ghosted Gwyneth Paltrow

AUSTIN, Texas — Even Gwyneth Paltrow can’t get on Jeff Bezos‘ calendar.

While in conversation with CNN anchor Poppy Harlow at SXSW on Monday morning, the goop creator revealed that the Amazon founder got in touch with her following a December Wall Street Journal article, only to leave her hanging.

“In the Wall Street Journal, they asked me about my mentors, like you have, and I said, ‘Oh sometimes I, like, cold call people,’ and they said, ‘Well has anyone not called you back?’ And I said, ‘Yes, Jeff Bezos,’” she told an audience at the Austin Convention Center.

“So after that came out, I got an email and the subject was ‘Jeff Bezos.’ And the sender was Jeff Bezos! The body of the email said, ‘Hi there Gwyneth, the Wall Street Journal told me you wanna talk to me.’ So, I wrote him back and then he wrote me and then I said, ‘I would die for the opportunity to sit down and ask you a bunch of questions’ … and he never wrote me back,” she explained.

The actress-turned-wellness guru continued, “He’s got a lot going on.”

“He’s, like, the only guy who never wrote you back,” Harlow, 36, said with a laugh.

“No, no,” Paltrow, 46, replied.

When asked by Harlow why she wants to get hold of the 55-year-old billionaire — who is still dating Lauren Sanchez following the scandalous start to their relationship — Paltrow explained that she’s intrigued by his process.

“There are so many things I would wanna ask him. I guess fundamentally, he sort of gives himself license at every turn to go into every business and I would want to psychologically understand the why and the engine behind that. I’m just fascinated by him,” she said.

And as for if she’d ever sell goop, which Fortune reported in May is now valued at $250 million, to Amazon, Paltrow replied, “I mean, sure, why not?”

“I think he’s gonna call you now,” Harlow said.

Billionaire Jeff Bezos wants to build a new community of super-humans in space.  

The Amazon boss, who’s estimated to be worth £103billion, dreams of putting a trillion people in the solar system to create colonies populated by ‘1,000 Mozarts and Einsteins’.

The tech mogul, 55, detailed his ambitious plans during a speech about his space transport company, Blue Origin.

Billionaire Jeff Bezos wants to build a new community of super-humans in space. The Amazon boss, who’s estimated to be worth £103billion, dreams of putting a trillion people in the solar system to create colonies populated by ‘1,000 Mozarts and Einsteins’ (file photo) 

‘The solar system can support a trillion humans, and then we’d have 1,000 Mozarts, and 1,000 Einsteins. Think how incredible and dynamic that civilization will be,’ he told an audience at New York’s Yale Club.

‘But if we’re going to have that, we do have to go out into the solar system. You have to capture more of the sun’s output, and we have to use all of the resources that are out in space, in terms of minerals and not just energy. And that’s very doable, but we have to get started.’

As reported by Business Insider, he added: ‘The fact of the matter is we don’t have forever, and the first step — I don’t know all future steps — but I know one of them is we need to build a low-cost, highly operable, reusable launch vehicle. No matter which path you take, it has to go through that gate.

‘That’s a very expensive step. That’s why Blue Origin is focused on it. It’s not something that two kids in a dorm room are going to do. But I really want that dynamic life and civilization for our grandchildren’s grandchildren. But we’ve got to get started.’

Bezos is currently in fierce competition with Elon Musk and Virgin’s Richard Branson to launch the first-ever commercial space mission. 

Musk, CEO of SpaceX, said his Starship rocket would take its first trip to the red planet in 2022, carrying only cargo, followed by a manned mission in 2024. 

But, last year, Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo, VSS Unity, flew higher than it ever had before, surpassing what the US Air Force considers the boundary of space, and marking the first manned flight to space from US soil since 2011.

The spaceship made it to a peak height of 51.4 miles (82.7 km). The US Air Force considers the space boundary to be at 50 miles.

The brief, suborbital flight – with two pilots on board – was a key milestone for the company which is striving to send tourists to space at a cost of $250,000 (£191,000) per seat.

Neither Blue Origin or Virgin Galactic is ready to board their first paying passengers, but both are targeting the first such flights this year.  


 The Amazon founder said he was inspired to pursue science and engineering by the 1969 moon landing, and plans to eventually build permanent settlements there

GOING TO SPACE WITH BLUE ORIGIN: HOW IT WORKS


Like previous Blue origin launches, the New Shepard rocket fired into orbit (one) before disconnecting from the passenger capsule (two), and then landing vertically (four and five) back on the launch pad. Shortly after this, the ‘Crew Capsule 2.0’ pod floated back to the ground (six)

The system consists of a pressurised crew capsule atop a reusable ‘New Shepard’ booster rocket.

The two vehicles launch together, accelerating for approximately two and a half minutes, before the engine cuts off.

The capsule then separates from the booster to coast quietly into space.

After a few minutes of free fall, the booster performs an autonomous rocket-powered vertical landing.

The passenger capsule lands softly under parachutes, both ready to be used again.

In January, Bezos spoke about his ambitions at the 16th Annual Living Legends of Aviation Awards in Beverly Hills.

Exclusive video obtained by DailyMail.com shows Bezos speaking at the awards, where he explained his vision for humans to live in space in just five generations time.

‘We could have a trillion humans in the solar system, we could have a thousand Mozarts and a thousand Einsteins, that’s the world I want my grandchildren’s grandchildren to live in,’ he told the audience.

‘This isn’t a problem for anybody in this room. We’re fine. But we have to set things up for future generations as well. And if you want them to be free, they do have to be able to leave this planet.’ 

The Amazon founder said he was inspired to pursue science and engineering by the 1969 moon landing, and plans to eventually build permanent settlements there.

‘It’s time to go back to the moon. It’s time to stay. We shouldn’t do an expedition. When we do that, we will find it’s a very useful place to build all kinds of things we will use to explore the solar system,’ he said.

‘We really need to figure out how to build space colonies, giant colonies. Picture rivers and lakes and so on,’ Bezos added. ‘We’re going to do that with space resources, we’re not going to lift all of that off Earth. And that’s where we will house a trillion people.’ 

WHO IS JEFF BEZOS?

Jeff Bezos is best known as the founder and CEO of online giant Amazon. 

Born in New Mexico and raised in Houston, Texas, he went on to attend the prestigious Princeton University and graduated in 1986. 

After a decade or so of work on Wall Street, Mr Bezos founded his own company in 1994.


Jeff Bezos was born in 1964 and is founder and CEO of Amazon. He is also the richest person in the world 

He initially called his company Cadabra, and then reportedly changed the name to Amazon when a colleague misheard it as ‘cadaver’.

Initially, it was launched as an online book store working out of Bezo’s garage in Seattle but rapidly grew to include a variety of goods and services. 

Now, Amazon is one of the biggest companies in the world and the most successful website in the world.

In 2018, the company is worth around $900 (£691 billion).

Mr Bezos himself has an estimated net worth of $150 billion (£115 billion).

He has bought and accumulated a variety of different companies and outlets including: Whole Foods, The Washington Post, Twitch and IMDB. 

He has a controlling share of 17 per cent in his first company, Amazon. 

In 2017, Jeff Bezos surpassed Bill Gates to become the richest person in the world, and the richest person of the modern world. 

He has been married since 1994 and has four children.

Flipping Out’s Jeff Lewis Wants Another Child ‘With or Without’ Gage Edward

Ready for more! Two weeks after announcing his split from Gage Edward, Jeff Lewis revealed that he wants another child.

“Within the next year, with or without Gage, I’m going to pursue having another child,” the Flipping Out star, 48, admitted on his Sirius XM show, Jeff Lewis Live Opens a New Window. , on Tuesday, February 12. “I think Monroe needs a sibling.” He went on to joke that he would use Edward’s embryo and sue him for child support.

The exes welcomed their 2-year-old daughter via surrogate in October 2016, and Monroe is currently staying in the interior designer’s Sherman Oaks, California, home after Gage moved out.

“Jeff is extremely concerned about how all of this will impact Monroe in the long term and is doing everything possible to keep the family together,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly after their breakup. “She has been completely unaware of any tension between her parents. She is at such a young age to truly realize what is going on, which is also helpful. They are both fantastic parents [and are] completely devoted to their daughter.”

One week after Lewis announced that his boyfriend of eight years had moved out of the house, the Bravo star slammed his ex for going out with another man.

“We’ve been getting along pretty well until I found out that he went out on a date on Saturday night,” he said on his show. “So that, number one, is a big f–king misstep. … I know who this person is. I will not say his name, but I think just for today, we’re gonna call him ‘Home-wrecker.’”

The real estate professional added: “I think ‘Home-wrecker’ has exploited a very vulnerable situation. … I don’t think he’s concerned about breaking up a family or jeopardizing Gage’s career or financial situation.”

Jeff Bezos pics – National Enquirer DEFENDS emails ‘threatening to publish Amazon billionaire’s nude selfies’… but vows to investigate

Last night the billionaire said the threat was an attempt to stop his investigation into how messages between himself and mistress Lauren Sanchez were first leaked to the magazine.


Today a statement from American Media, the company owner, today said: "American Media believes fervently that it acted lawfully in the reporting of the story of Mr. Bezos.

"Further, at the time of the recent allegations made by Mr. Bezos, it was in good faith negotiations to resolve all matters with him.

"Nonetheless, in light of the nature of the allegations published by Mr. Bezos, the Board has convened and determined that it should promptly and thoroughly investigate the claims. Upon completion of that investigation, the Board will take whatever appropriate action is necessary."

Intimate details of the couple's affair were first published in the Enquirer last month – just hours after Bezos announced he and his wife MacKenzie were getting a divorce.

But in a sensational statement released yesterday, Bezos – the world's richest man – said the magazine's publishers AMI had attempted a campaign of "extortion and blackmail" against him.

He claimed an editor acting on the orders of AMI's ferocious chairman David Pecker had gone on to demand Bezos stop his investigation into the text and photo leak, or else the nude pics would be published.

SORDID SNAPS

Emails apparently sent by AMI chief content officer Dylan Howard to Bezos' lawyer threatened the publication of 10 shocking snippets:

  • “A below the belt selfie — otherwise colloquially known as a ‘d**k pick’”
  • "Mr. Bezos face selfie at what appears to be a business meeting."
  • "Ms. Sanchez response — a photograph of her smoking a cigar in what appears to be a simulated oral sex scene."
  • "A shirtless Mr Bezos holding his phone in his left hand –  while wearing his wedding ring. He’s wearing either tight black cargo pants or shorts — and his semi-erect manhood is penetrating the zipper of said garment."
  • "A full-length body selfie of Mr Bezos wearing just a pair of tight black boxer-briefs or trunks, with his phone in his left hand — while wearing his wedding ring."
  • "A selfie of Mr. Bezos fully clothed."
  • "A full-length scantily-clad body shot with short trunks."
  • "A naked selfie in a bathroom — while wearing his wedding ring. Mr Bezos is wearing nothing but a white towel — and the top of his pubic region can be seen."
  • "Ms Sanchez wearing a plunging red neckline dress revealing her cleavage and a glimpse of her nether region."
  • "Ms Sanchez wearing a two-piece red bikini with gold detail dress revealing her cleavage."

After listing the descriptions, Howard allegedly wrote: "It would give no editor pleasure to send this email.

"I hope common sense can prevail – and quickly."

TRUMP 'BIAS'

Explaining his decision to publish the emails alleging the "blackmail", Bezos wrote on Medium: "Any personal embarrassment AMI could cause me takes a back seat because there’s a much more important matter involved here.

"If in my position I can’t stand up to this kind of extortion, how many people can?"

According to further emails, AMI wanted Bezos' assurance that he would end a probe into how the leaks first emerged last month.

The billionaire alleges that his investigation could expose a pro-Trump political motivation being behind the Enquirer's coverage.

It is believed that the brother of former TV news anchor Sanchez may have gained access to the couple's private messages.

Ms Sanchez's brother Michael – thought to be a Trump supporter – is then alleged to have potentially passed the texts and pics on to the National Enquirer to discredit Bezos.

Nothing I might write here could tell the National Enquirer story as eloquently as their own words below

President Trump has often vocally criticised Bezos – who also owns the Washington Post newspaper.

And AMI has admitted that it engaged in what's known as "catch-and-kill" practices to help Trump become president.

That admission was part of a deal between AMI and federal prosecutors.

They agreed to not pursue charges against the company for secretly assisting Trump's campaign by paying $150,000 to a Playboy model for the rights to her story about an alleged affair with the then-candidate.

The company then intentionally suppressed the story until after the election.

Explaining his decision to speak out, Mr Bezos said: "Of course I don’t want personal photos published, but I also won’t participate in their well-known practice of blackmail, political favors, political attacks and corruption.

"I prefer to stand up, roll this log over and see what crawls out.”

Publishing the shocking emails, Bezos added: "Nothing I might write here could tell the National Enquirer story as eloquently as their own words below."

AMI, also known as American Media Inc, has not commented on the allegations.

Responding to previous allegations of political motivations affecting coverage, AMI said: “American Media emphatically rejects any assertion that its reporting was instigated, dictated or influenced in any manner by external forces, political or otherwise.”

Flipping Out’s Jeff Lewis Is ‘Concerned’ About Daughter After Gage Split

Doing what’s best for their child. Flipping Out star Jeff Lewis announced on Thursday, January 31, that he and boyfriend Gage Edward split after more than eight years together. Now, the interior designer has one thing on his mind — their 2-year-old daughter, Monroe.

“Jeff is extremely concerned about how all of this will impact Monroe in the long term and is doing everything possible to keep the family together,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly, adding that the pair “never fought in front of Monroe.”

“She has been completely unaware of any tension between her parents,” the insider explains. “She is at such a young age to truly realize what is going on, which is also helpful. They are both fantastic parents [and are] completely devoted to their daughter.”

Monroe, who was born via surrogate in October 2018, is currently staying in Lewis’ Sherman Oaks, California, home as Edward “abruptly decided to move out on Wednesday night,” according to the source.

“Gage has access to their daughter, and can see her anytime he wants,” the insider says.

Lewis, 48, revealed on his Sirius XM show, Jeff Lewis Live, earlier Thursday that the split “has been a long time coming,” but they were hesitant to actually go their separate ways because “neither one of us want to leave the baby.”

“We’ve been in separate rooms for a very long time … we’ve had a lot of discussions about it … it was kind of like a roommate situation,” he said on the radio show, adding, “Something happened around December where I was like, ‘S—t, this is getting real.’ … I didn’t fight for the relationship. I didn’t work at the relationship.”

As for the former couple’s future? Nothing is set in stone. The insider notes: “They could end up back together when cooler heads prevail.”

Jeff Bezos Wants To Know How The National Enquirer Got Its Hands On His N00dz

The early days of a relationship (or affair) are just the best…you gush really stupid shit to each other that would be deemed certifiably insane and emotionally unstable by an outside audience, you send lots of emojis, and there’s definitely the occasional peen pic or 50. Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez were doing that behind the backs of their spouses, and The National Enquirer got wind of that and spilled the tea to the rest of us. Now Jeff is out with a vengeance to see who handed off his dick pics to them. Hint: he thinks it may have something to do with Trump.

Page Six is reporting that Jeff thinks there may be a right-wing conspiracy working against him since he owns the Washington Post, which regularly trashes Donald Trump, and Trump has a good relationship with the National Enquirer, which killed all sorts of Trump hit pieces during the 2016 election.

The Enquirer published the sordid parts of Jeff’s affair with Lauren, and now he’s paying for an inquiry into who leaked his private materials and is apparently “increasingly convinced that political motives are behind the disclosure.” Gee, ya think? Trump gets pissed off if McDonald’s is out of BBQ sauce, so lord only knows what he’d do to the guy who owns the paper that regularly reminds America “What da FUQ were y’all huffing on Election Day 2016?!” The inquiry hasn’t yet proven Jeff was hacked, and there isn’t proof Lauren blabbed about their relationship. The Enquirer maintains Lauren has “loose lips” and was sharing screen grabs of Jeff’s texts and nudes with friends. Jeff isn’t buying that and still thinks there’s a hatchet job out for his ass by extreme right wingers.

Sources say that’s crazy talk, but there might be an instance of National Enquirer owner David Pecker trying to get back into Donald’s good graces after getting immunity to agree to testify into ongoing investigations into the 2016 campaign and whether the tabloid killed off stories by women who claimed to have an affair with Donald. I think if we just see an uptick in employees of the FBI and NSA who go to the optometrist and need their eyeballs washed from snatching Jeff’s n00dz on behalf of the president, then we’ll know where the leak came from!

Flipping Out’s Jeff Lewis Announces Split From BF: He ‘Moved Out’

It’s over. Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward have parted ways after more than eight years together.

The Flipping Out star, 48, announced news of their split during his Sirius XM show, Jeff Lewis Live Opens a New Window. , on Thursday, January 31. “I have to tell you … and I don’t think this is actually bad news, but Gage actually moved out of the house last night,” the reality TV personality revealed.

“So, he went into a hotel,” Lewis explained. “This has been a long time coming. We’ve been in separate rooms for a very long time … we’ve had a lot of discussions about it … it was kind of like a roommate situation. And I think the reason we hadn’t ripped the Band-Aid off and actually separated was because, A, we have the baby, and neither one of us want to leave the baby. And then, also, financially, it wasn’t the best time.”

Lewis went on to detail the past few months of confusion leading up to Edward’s exit from their home. “We kind of thought we were breaking up,” he said. “And then something happened around December, where I was like, shit, this is getting real … I didn’t help the matter any, at all. I didn’t fight for the relationship, I didn’t work at the relationship.”

The interior designer then noted that around New Year’s he realized he didn’t really want to split, and began to fight really hard to keep their relationship going but “it was too late.” Lewis added that during their parting conversation he told Edward,“I’m not throwing you out and I’m not breaking up with you.”

The couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Monroe — whom they welcomed in October 2016 via surrogate — will be staying with Lewis for now.

The former pair was sued in June 2018 by the woman who carried their child. The surrogate claimed that she never gave her consent for Flipping Out to air footage of her giving birth, which was shown in August 2017.

Emmerdale's Jeff Hordley fuels fan theory Joe Tate is still alive as he refuses to answer question on This Morning

The soap star refused to confirm whether or not the Dales bad boy is really dead – sending fans into a whirlwind on Twitter.

Asked by hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford if Joe was gone for good, Jeff – who plays Cain Dingle in the ITV favourite – kept his response vague.

He dished: "As far as Cain's concerned Joe's dead and people are asking the question, 'Is he alive or not?' but as far as Cain's concerned he's dead and as far as Debbie's concerned he's dead."

But the TV presenters didn't leave it there as Eamonn again pried moments later.

Jeff once again insisted he had no idea if Joe – played by Ned Porteous – was really dead or alive.


He explained: "In terms of scripts and what I know and where it's going at the moment, I've not seen any evidence in the scripts that say otherwise otherwise."

Viewers instantly dissected Jeff's remarks, with many speculating Joe was still very much alive but just wouldn't be back for a while.

One wrote: "#ThisMorning so basically Jeff saying Cain thinks Joe's dead. Aha!"

Another tweeted: "So Joe isn't dead then #Emmerdale #ThisMorning."

A third concurred: "#ThisMorning I think they have left it in Emmerdale that Joe could come back."

Another suggested: "So if Cain and Debbie think he is dead, means ITV keeping door open to drag out as long as possible for "talkability". #ThisMorning."

Jeff appeared on the show alongside onscreen daughter Charley Webb, who stars as Debbie Dingle.

The pair are both at the centre of the Joe Tate storyline as Cain believes he punched him to death on the day he was supposed to marry Debbie.

Jeff Bezos ‘shared wife’s pillow talk’ with lover Lauren Sanchez

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos ‘shared his wife’s pillow talk and bizarre dreams’ with lover Lauren Sanchez and ‘made an odd reference to Bono in another text message to her’

  • National Enquirer has released new text messages between Bezos and Sanchez 
  • The September message describes Bezos’ wife discussing a dream with him
  • Another message from September 11 mentions U2 lead singer Bono
  • ‘I want to get a little drunk with you tonight’ reads one Bezos message from June 
  • Follows report that lovers were spotted ‘making out like teenagers’ in restaurant
  • Michael Strahan was said to be sitting at the next table in LA hotspot Felix 

Jeff Bezos shared his wife’s pillow talk in a text message with married lover Lauren Sanchez, and mentioned U2 lead singer Bono in another, a new report has claimed.

The National Enquirer revealed the newly leaked text messages on Saturday, including one in which Bezos discussed an ominous dream his wife MacKenzie Bezos had described to him.

The September text from Jeff Bezos reportedly said: ‘MacKenzie dreamt I redecorated the bedroom. I kept doing it and it got weirder and weirder and weirder. Until I was sewing stuffed turtles into the comforter. Wife said: ‘That’s not hard to interpret.”

The magazine also printed in full a message from September 11, in which the Amazon CEO thanks Sanchez for advising him to contact Bono ‘for music permission’.

BEZOS’ SEXTS TO SANCHEZ 

‘I love you, alive girl. I will show you with my body, and my lips and my eyes, very soon.’

 ‘I want to smell you, I want to breathe you in. I want to hold you tight.… I want to kiss your lips…. I love you. I am in love with you.’

‘I miss you. I want to kiss you right now and tuck you in slowly and gently. And maybe in the morning wake you up and not be quite so gentle with you.’

‘Your energy and ideas and competence and SPIRIT turn me on. You make me better. You’re meant for me.’

‘I am so full of love for you. My heart is growing just so it can have room for you. It’s bigger than it’s ever been and still swelling.’

‘I want to hold you tight.… I want to kiss your lips…. I love you. I am in love with you.’ 

‘You know what I want? I want to get a little drunk with you tonight. Not falling down. Just a little drunk. I want to talk to you and plan with you. Listen and laugh … I basically WANT TO BE WITH YOU!!! Then I want to fall asleep with you and wake up tomorrow and read the paper with you and have coffee with you’

The message reportedly read: 

‘I am so full of love for you.

‘My heart is growing just so it can have room for you.

‘It’s bigger than it’s ever been and still swelling.

‘Lauren, I’m in love with you. Deep. I know it sounds strange, but even little things like you suggesting I ask for extra training from Bell make my love for you expand and grow.

‘Makes me think of when you told me to ask Bono for music permission.

‘Your energy and ideas and competence and spirit turn me on.

‘You make me better.

‘You’re meant for me.

‘I know it more clearly than I’ve ever known anything.’

It is unclear what the request is to Bono that Bezos might be referring to. In May of last year, Bono, Bezos and Bill Gates joined together to invest in a Seattle-based trucking technology company. 

Bezos and Sanchez’s relationship was revealed by the Enquirer this week, hours after Bezos and his wife announced their intention to divorce in a joint statement. 

A source close to Bezos has insisted to DailyMail.com that he and MacKenzie were separated before the affair began. 

Published reports indicate that MacKenzie and Sanchez’s husband, Hollywood mogul Patrick Whitesell, discovered the affair around Thanksgiving, and that Bezos is insisting that his wife knew in order to protect the couple’s children.


Lauren Sanchez sent a friend the explicit text messages and picture of his genitalia that Jeff Bezos sent her and that is what led to their affair being exposed, according to new reports

‘Blindisded’: Sanchez’s husband Patrick had ‘no idea’ she was having an affair with the Amazon founder. They are pictured at a Lakers game in 2010 

Bezos, 54, sent Sanchez, 49, shirtless selfies and gushing, sexual text messages while the pair carried on an affair which involved private jet rendezvous, intimate dinners and sleepovers at each other’s marital homes, according to Enquirer. 

In addition to shirtless photographs he took standing in front of mirrors, including one in a steamy room where the magazine claims he was wearing just a towel, he also sent Sanchez an ‘unsparing’ photograph of his genitals which it said was too graphic to publish. 

Earlier this week, reports emerged that Enquirer got their hands on the texts after the former Fox and Extra host Sanchez bragged about the affair and sent Bezos’ explicit text messages and selfies to a friend. 

According to Page Six, Sanchez sent a friend a photograph of Bezos’ genitalia which he had sent her along with other messages which included him telling her he loved her and that he wanted to ‘breathe her in’. 


The National Enquirer published photos of Bezos and Sanchez in Thursday’s edition

Sanchez (far left) was spotted alongside Bezos at Amazon’s Golden Globes party on Sunday (above).  They have been having an relationship for months and had exchanged text messages as far back as last April where he told her he wanted to ‘breathe her in’ 

Sanchez and her husband attended the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscars party (above where they posed with Best Actor winner Casey Affleck). The Bezos also attended the event 


Sanchez, shown above on a vacation in 2012, has three children from two relationships. They are aged between 10 and 17 

Jeff and MacKenzie were most-recently seen attending Senator John McCain’s funeral in early September in Washington, DC. He was still wearing his wedding ring which he also had on on Sunday 

The friend slipped the messages to the Enquirer and that it was triggered its exhaustive, four month investigation into the pair’s romance, according to the source.  

One source who claimed to have seen the photograph of Bezos’ genitalia that he sent Sanchez told Page Six: ‘He’s big.’  

Sanchez has not commented since her affair with Bezos, the richest man in the world with a personal wealth of $140billion, became public on Wednesday hours after he announced his divorce from his wife MacKenzie. 

Two-time author MacKenzie Bezos, 48, who won an American Book Award in 2006, was one of the first employees of Amazon at its founding, doing accounting for the start-up. 

According to the Enquirer’s sources, Bezos is ‘in love’ with Sanchez and has told her, in less explicit language than his other texts: ‘We don’t have to worry about the parachute opening because we are jumping together. 

‘We are sharing the parachute and it will land safely. We have chosen each other.’

Amazon Vice President of Corporate Communications Drew Herdener told DailyMail.com in a statement: ‘Jeff remains focused on and engaged in all aspects of Amazon.’

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos 'secretly seeing estranged wife of Hollywood mogul' as he heads for biggest divorce in history

Bezos, 54, has been seeing Lauren Sanchez,  former TV anchor and the glamorous wife of talent agent Patrick Whitesell, Page Six says.

The world’s richest man — and wife MacKenzie, 48,  revealed their 25-year marriage was over in a joint statement.

He may have to give his wife HALF of his $160billion fortune the biggest divorce in history.

Sources said that Bezos, 54, and Sanchez, 49, – who also works as a helicopter pilot – got to know each other through her husband Whitesell, one of Hollywood’s most powerful men.

He is agent to stars including Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Kevin Costner, Hugh Jackman, plus a host of other A-listers.



Patrick, Lauren and Jeff were even pictured together at a 2016 event for the movie Manchester By The Sea.

But sources say Lauren became closer to Bezos after she separated with Whitesell before Christmas.

An exclusive source told Page Six “Patrick and Lauren have socialized with Jeff Bezos and his wife for a few years, because both (now former) couples have houses in Seattle.

“Patrick and Lauren Sanchez have been separated for a while. Their marriage has been off and on for a while, and they tried hard to fix things, but in the fall they officially separated. She had told Patrick that she has been recently seeing Jeff Bezos," a source said.

Sanchez and Whitesell wed in 2005 and have two young children.



Lauren, a former co-host on Fox 11’s “Good Day LA,” has been a guest host on ABC’s “The View” and “Extra.” She was also the original host of Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance.” She also runs a company called Black Ops Aviation, which specializes in shooting aerial shots for TV shows, movies and commercials.

Jeff and Mackenzie wed the year before he founded Amazon, are not thought to have signed a pre-nuptial agreement, according to reports.

Divorce laws in their home state Washington say wealth made during a marriage must be split 50-50.

Half of Bezos’s fortune would make award-winning author MacKenzie the world’s richest woman.

And their break-up could dwarf the £2.9billion French tycoon Alec Wildenstein paid to ex-wife Jocelyn in 1999.

Bezos and MacKenzie, who have four kids, said they broke up after a “trial separation”.


But their Twitter statement added: “We remain cherished friends.”

The couple met in New York in 1992 when Bezos, then a hedge fund executive, interviewed her for a job.

He set up Amazon as an online bookstore in his garage in 1994 employing his wife as an accountant for the start-up.

His wife is said to have supported him as he turned it into the world’s biggest stock market-listed firm.

They have homes in LA, New York and three other US cities worth a total £93million.

Bezos also owns the Washington Post newspaper.

Forbes magazine's "real-time rich list" currently puts his personal fortune at $136.4bn (£107bn), after he became the first man ever to have a wealth of more than $150bn.

Reuters estimates his wealth at more than $160bn thanks to his 16 per cent holding in the online giant.

A version of this story originally appeared on Page Six.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie are divorcing after 25 years of marriage

Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos has been secretly having a relationship with Lauren Sanchez, a former TV anchor and the glamorous wife of Hollywood talent mogul Patrick Whitesell.

The world’s richest man Bezos just announced his divorce from wife of 25 years MacKenzie, but Page Six can exclusively reveal he has secretly been seeing Sanchez, a former anchor of Fox’s “Good Day LA.”

Sources said that Bezos, 54, and Sanchez, 49, – who also works as a helicopter pilot – got to know each other through her WME/IMG husband Whitesell, one of Hollywood’s most powerful men and agent to stars including Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Kevin Costner, Hugh Jackman, plus a host of other A-listers

Patrick, Lauren and Jeff were even pictured together at a 2016 event for the movie “Manchester By The Sea,” which starred another of Patrick’s clients, Michelle Williams. But sources say Lauren became closer to Bezos after she separated with Whitesell in the fall. Meanwhile Bezos revealed on Wednesday that he and his wife have been going through a “trial separation.”

A exclusive source told Page Six “Patrick and Lauren have socialized with Jeff Bezos and his wife for a few years, because both (now former) couples have houses in Seattle.

“Then Lauren was hired to work on one of Bezos’ projects, ‘Blue Origin’, a space launch company, as a helicopter pilot. She has been shooting aerial shots for Bezos.

“Patrick and Lauren Sanchez have been separated for a while. Their marriage has been off and on for a while, and they tried hard to fix things, but in the fall they officially separated. She had told Patrick that she has been recently seeing Jeff Bezos.”

Sanchez and Whitesell wed in 2005 and have two young children. She also has a teenage son Nikko, from her first marriage, to former NFLer Tony Gonzalez. They have not yet formally filed for divorce.

On Wednesday Bezos, who has an estimated worth of $137.4 billion according to Forbes, tweeted, “We want to make people aware of a development in our lives. As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends.”

He continued: “We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other. If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again.”

A former commander of the International Space Station (ISS) believes Jeff Bezos will outshine rivals Richard Branson and Elon Musk in the pursuit of commercial space flight. 

The billionaire founder of Amazon set up Blue Origin, a firm which he hopes will one day enable low cost passage to space. 

Polarising maverick Elon Musk is often in headlines and Richard Branson’s high-profile Virgin Galactic endeavour has had a spate of recent successes.  

NASA astronaut Terry Virts however, believes it is Bezos’ no frills and relatively quiet approach to space flight which will see him distinguish himself above his peers.

‘I think Bezos is in it for the long run. He’s not out there on Twitter,  he’s not out there talking about himself,’ Mr Virts said in an interview with CNBC. 

‘He’s the speak softly and carry a big stick kind of guy.’

The former astronaut lavished praise on the Amazon founder for his approach to the space race but said both Musk and Branson have helped the advancement of science too.

He said Musk’s enthusiasm and popularity was fantastic for getting people, and particularly children, interested and passionate about space again. 

He also pointed out the success of the Falcon 9 rocket as a key turning point in making satellite launches cheaper and more accessible since the Russian Soyuz rocket has become increasingly unreliable.

WHO IS JEFF BEZOS?

Jeff Bezos is best known as the founder and CEO of online giant Amazon. 

Born in New Mexico and raised in Houston, Texas, he went on to attend the prestigious Princeton University and graduated in 1986. 

After a decade or so of work on Wall Street, Mr Bezos founded his own company in 1994.


Jeff Bezos was born in 1964 and is founder and CEO of Amazon. He is also the richest person in the world 

He initially called his company Cadabra, and then reportedly changed the name to Amazon when a colleague misheard it as ‘cadaver’.

Initially, it was launched as an online book store working out of Bezo’s garage in Seattle but rapidly grew to include a variety of goods and services. 

Now, Amazon is one of the biggest companies in the world and the most successful website in the world.

In 2018, the company is worth around $900 (£691 billion).

Mr Bezos himself has an estimated net worth of $150 billion (£115 billion).

He has bought and accumulated a variety of different companies and outlets including: Whole Foods, The Washington Post, Twitch and IMDB. 

He has a controlling share of 17 per cent in his first company, Amazon. 

In 2017, Jeff Bezos surpassed Bill Gates to become the richest person in the world, and the richest person of the modern world. 

He has been married since 1994 and has four children.  

While he branded Branson ‘cool’, the former ISS veteran called Bezos the ‘real deal’ and said his company, Blue Origin, is ‘legit’.   

He added: ‘The BE-4 engine that he is making, I think is going to be the most important rocket engine of the 21st century.’

‘He’s doing things a little bit slower and he is doing it all on his own. Most of his programmes are not with NASA or the government.’ 

‘I think he has some spare change lying around the couch that he can fund this stuff with.  

‘I think he is the long, slow and in the long run he is going to make a real impact in getting to the moon, getting people into space and really  impacting the 21st century space economy.’  

THE BILLIONAIRE SPACE RACE


Jeff Bezos in front of Blue Origin’s space capsule

Jeff Bezos’ space tourism project with Blue Origin is competing with a similar programme in development by Space X, the rocket firm founded and run by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and Virgin Galactic, backed by Richard Branson.

Bezos revealed in April 2017 that he finances Blue Origin with around $1 billion (£720 million) of Amazon stock each year.

The system consists of a pressurised crew capsule atop a reusable ‘New Shepard’ booster rocket. 

The richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos is pursuing Blue Origin with vigour as he tries to launch his ‘New Glenn’ rocket into low-Earth orbit by 2020.  

Whilst Bezos is yet to leave the atmosphere of Earth, despite several successful launches, Elon Musk’s SpaceX programme has already sent the Falcon Heavy rocket into space.

On February 6 2018, SpaceX sent the rocket towards the orbit of Mars, 140 million miles away. 

On board was a red Tesla roadster that belonged to Musk himself.

SpaceX have won several multi-million dollar contracts from Nasa as the space agency hopes to use the rockets as a fast-track for its colonisation of the red planet. 

Richard Branson and Virgin Galactic recently successfully conducted a test flight of the Virgin Galactic’s Unity spaceplane.   

The flight accelerated to over 1,400 miles per hour (Mach 1.87).

Calling space ‘tantalisingly close’, Branson also said last year that suborbital space in test flights could be happening by this spring. 

More than 700 affluent customers to date, including celebrities Brad Pitt and Katy Perry, have reserved a $250,000 (£200,000) seat on one of Virgin’s space trips, 

The billionaire mogul also said he expects Elon Musk to win the race to Mars with his private rocket firm SpaceX. 


Richard Branson with the Virgin Galactic craft

SpaceShipTwo will carry six passengers and two pilots. Each passenger gets the same seating position with two large windows – one to the side and one overhead.

The space ship is 60ft long with a 90inch diameter cabin allowing maximum room for the astronauts to float in zero gravity.

A climb to 50,000ft before the rocket engine ignites. Passengers become ‘astronauts’ when they reach the Karman line, the boundary of Earth’s atmosphere, at which point SpaceShipTwo separates from its carrier aircraft, White Knight II.

The spaceship will then make a sub-orbital journey with approximately six minutes of weightlessness, with the entire flight lasting approximately 3.5 hours.

Jeff Brazier reveals kids are struggling to cope with tragic mum Jade Goody's death

Jade tragically died from cervical cancer in 2009 when sons Bobby, now 15, and Freddie, 14, were still very young.

But Jeff has revealed that almost a decade on, his kids are still processing what happened.

Jeff told the Daily Star Sunday: “Grief evolves. It can be dependent on the age of the children.

“You might think 10 years later it’s surely going to be calming down a bit and they’ll be used to it and it’ll cause them less pain. But the truth is they’re going through teenage changes.”

He went on to explain that he used to have “monthly discussion” about Jade with his sons, but that the boys now shy away from speaking about what happened.

Jeff continued: “You know you love your children. But what happens when the unknown starts to present itself? What do you do when they’re crying for their mum? What do you do when they’re being naughty because they’re upset about losing their mum?”

Jeff got support for the loss through a charity called Grief Encounter, which offers support to bereaved children.

The former footballer went on to train as a grief therapist and got married to Kate Dwyer in September this year.


The couple tied the knot in Portugal with Bobby and Freddie acting as his best men.

In an emotional interview with Hello!, Jeff, 39, said PR director Kate had changed their lives beyond measure.

Jeff explained: “I'm so happy to marry Kate, who has brought so much stability to my life.

“It doesn't just represent Kate and I putting rings on each other's fingers. It represents the fact that we won at something really tricky. We won at becoming a family.”

He added: “Before it was just three boys rattling around in a house on our own, trying to get through life. Then Kate came along and worked so hard at making us complete.

“She hasn't just completed one person, she's completed a family and given three boys a real sense of belonging.”

Sun Online Showbiz previously revealed that Jeff has shared previously unseen photos from his wedding to Kate.

‘Better man’ Jeff Horn retires Anthony Mundine with left hook

Anthony Mundine must never fight again. The 43-year-old, who has been a wonderful campaigner, looked tentative – timid even – from the moment he stepped in the ring against Jeff Horn on Friday night.

And after such a long wait for the fight to begin, it was over before it really started. Horn, the far younger, stronger man, pounced on Mundine from the outset. 'The Man' looked slow, his jab pedestrian, and Horn was in no mood to hang around.

Next generation: Jeff Horn stands over Anthony Mundine as he hits the canvas.Credit:Darren England

A body shot hurt Mundine very early, then after just 96 seconds of the first round he was on the canvas after Horn clocked him with a left hook. Mundine tumbled and referee Phil Austin had no choice but to wave it off.

It wasn't a massive shot but Mundine had no intention, nor the ability, to get back to his feet. The mismatch was evident from the first exchanges and Mundine knew it.

Perhaps it was the draining weight cut but it was more likely the quality and vigour of his opponent, who had just been in with the best fighter in the world, Terence Crawford.

Mundine had done his best to sell the dream all week, to the extent that punters were piling into him before the fight in the hope that he would end his career with what would have been a stunning upset.

It could never have been the case. Mundine says he will now retire and that's the right move. No amount of money should tempt him to get back in the boxing ring. He ends his career with 48 wins and nine losses.

"I've had a great career. Jeff proved tonight he was the better man. That's the next generation, I'll pass it on to him," Mundine said after the fight.

"All the smack talk, you have to build the fight. It's entertainment. But I'm all good. That's boxing. You just get caught sometimes."

The ease in which he won did answer one question for Horn; he looked great in his first foray up from welterweight. And while he could not go with the American superstar earlier in the year, he showed on Friday night he was miles above a fighter that has been a staple of the domestic scene.

He did look sharp, aggressive and ultra-confident at the higher weight and that's likely now where he will continue his career. He must now try to position himself against elite overseas opponents in search of a new world title.

The question now will be how long before this fight did Mundine know he was in enormous trouble? The pay day should be handsome for both men – and for Mundine, that will soothe some of the bruises he sustained in a short but violent affair.

The era of Mundine is over at last. Horn now holds the mantle as the official main attraction for Australian fight fans. Of that, there can be no argument.

Ben and Jeff Horn go from backyard bouts to the River City Rumble

Jeff and Ben Horn have lost count of how many scraps they had in the bedroom they shared as kids. The only thing they know for sure is "each dog had their day".

The problem was one of them usually wound up in tears, and the other found themselves in a world of trouble when parents Jeff Snr and Liza found out.

Those bedroom brawls toughened future world champion Jeff, who meets Anthony Mundine in what he hopes will be a changing of the guard for Australian boxing at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.

Ben will again share the big stage with his older brother – only this time in a different capacity. He is swapping cornerman duties for a professional debut against Lachlan O’Shea.

Ben was in Jeff's corner when his brother stunned the world against Manny Pacquiao, and he was the first to embrace him in the ring following his first World Boxing Organisation title defence.

He was there belting a heavy bag as Jeff prepared for his bout with American sensation Terence Crawford inside Kevin Barry's Las Vegas gym in June.

And Ben has been there every step of the way since the 30-year-old former school teacher turned his attention to 'The Man'.

It is safe to say the Horn brothers have come a long way since they shared a room together in Brisbane's southwest suburb of Pallara, where Ben laughs they were "always scrapping".

"We weren’t the best at getting along as kids," Jeff laughed.

"We did play together a lot but then I suppose there was a lot of fights as well that we would have. I felt like the majority [were caused by] him, but he would probably say the opposite.

"I would always get in trouble for going that little too far and hurting him, I’d get in a little bit of trouble.

"He goes well [in boxing], he’s tough. That’s one thing he has got in spades, he can take shots and he can give them too. He’s got that come forward style where he can just keep banging on. He’s a tough boy.

"It’s good for him, I can’t believe he is getting his first fight, his debut, at Suncorp Stadium. It’s pretty crazy. Hopefully he can go all the way."

Ben finds the prospect of a debut on the big stage of Suncorp Stadium hard to fathom as well, but he is ready to take the leap.

After all, the carpenter says at 28 years old "it's time to move".

The pair prepared for their bouts the only way they know how to – by channelling their childhood and savaging each other for four rounds at the Stretton Boxing Club inside Glenn Rushton's sprawling mansion last week.

"We both started [boxing] at the same time, Jeffrey a little bit earlier than by six months or so. After that I was walking in and out of the gym," Ben said.

"The problem with me was I never stayed there like Jeffrey has, he’s always been so competitive whereas I was having fights and doing work and training.

"I was there when Jeff walked out to Manny Pacquiao and beat him, and the crowd was just unreal. I’m looking forward to it."

Ben has been soaking up every bit of the hype surrounding what is being billed as the biggest all-Australian fight ever – he even got a photo with Mundine at Wednesday's press conference.

"I just like the man. People have their opinions about him, but he is a great athlete and I don’t think he’s a bad bloke, but come Friday it’s game on," Ben said.

"You can be respectful outside the ring, I shook my opponent’s hand and looked him in the eyes, you be respectful. Come through those ropes and it’s going to be a different story for both of us."

'Survivor' Host Jeff Probst's Net Worth and How Long He Thinks the Show Will Last

When it comes to reality TV show hosts who are just as pivotal to the show as the contestants, no one can beat Jeff Probst. From famous phrases while snuffing out torches like “the tribe has spoken” to his gleeful “come on in, guys!” as contestants are entering a new immunity challenge, Survivor fans can’t imagine what the show would be like without Jeff’s commentary.

Now, 18 years after Survivor first began, we’re 37 seasons into the show — and Jeff is still thriving as the show’s most consistent presence. Here’s his net worth, as well as how long he expects Survivor to keep running for.

How Jeff Probst first started working on Survivor

Jeff has been a part of the show for all 37 seasons — and just as we’ve seen the gameplay of the show evolve, we’ve also watched the host find his footing with the audience. It wasn’t always easy for him to get a big-name TV gig, however. “I reached a point after Access Hollywood … and I was saying no to a lot of jobs,” Jeff told the Television Academy Foundation. “I reached a point where I thought I want the next job to be one that I really can sink my teeth into.”

After that, Jeff mentioned he was being offered gigs on dating and game shows — but they didn’t seem like the right fit. “I waited a year and a half and I got down to $8,000 in my bank account … I saw no dollar coming in.” But that’s when Survivor started coming into play. After Jeff interviewed to host two large gameshows but came up short for both, he heard his local radio station discussing a new show (which we now know as Survivor). He listened to the concept and knew it was brilliant and wanted to be a part of it. Jeff went on to interview for the role of host, and the rest is history.

There were a few moments when he didn’t picture staying with the show for long

While Jeff knew he was the best option for hosting Survivor when it began, he never pictured the show running for as long as it had. And back when it was just on Season 5, Entertainment Weekly notes he was considering exploring other professional avenues. His contract only brought him to Season 12 — and after that, he had a choice to make. Would he leave CBS, or continue with hosting one of America’s favorite reality series?

We know now that Jeff decided to stick with Survivor — and he’s glad he did. But something else seemed to shift. Not only was he host, but he also became an executive producer. He was able to add more of his personality into the show itself, and he had a hand in the other creative aspects of the show. Taking on a role that gave him more creative freedom drove him to stick with it.

He still loves the show and doesn’t ever see it ending

When will Survivor end? Entertainment Weekly notes Jeff will be around for seasons to come, as Season 38 is underway, casting has begun for Season 39, and Jeff has also discussed what he wants to do for Season 40. As long as Jeff still wants to be a part of the show, the show definitely isn’t ending anytime soon. As Jeff told People, “I’ve got a great job that has me doing what I love. I’m looking forward to many more seasons.”

“Anybody who meets me and talks about Survivor always walks away with the same takeaway: ‘Wow, that guy is still super enthusiastic,’” Jeff told People. “The reason why I’m still enthusiastic today is the same reason why I wanted the job so badly back in 2000: I love humans. I love human behavior. … It just never gets old.”

Jeff’s total net worth

While he’s certainly amassed his fortune through reality TV, Survivor has opened up other money-making avenues for Jeff over the years. Entertainment Weekly notes he’s written and directed films, briefly hosted a talk show, and also co-wrote children’s books. According to Celebrity Net Worth, all of his ventures put Jeff at a net worth of around $40 million today, and his salary from Survivor stands at about $4 million per year. Not bad for a man who once had less than $8,000 to his name.

Jeff Sagarin says: Shakiest odds on Saturday’s college football schedule

The biggest game in college football this weekend might be the one at a non-traditional site, when the No. 3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish take on the No. 12 Syracuse Orange at Yankee Stadium.

Looking to secure a spot in the College Football Playoff, the Fighting Irish are 10-point favorites. According to Jeff Sagarin's power ratings, there may be a little too much love for Notre Dame.

The master statistician has provided his unique ratings to USA TODAY Sports dating back to 1985. Here are a few of the most revealing numbers from the biggest games this week in college football:

No. 3 Notre Dame (10-0) vs. No. 12 Syracuse (8-2) at New York 

TV: 2:30 ET, NBC

Pregame.com line: Notre Dame by 10

Sagarin says: Notre Dame by 8.81.

The Irish have to make the longer trip to the Bronx. While they figure to have starting quarterback Ian Book back under center, the Orange will be a tougher test than expected.

No. 22 Boston College (7-3) at Florida State (4-6)

TV: 3:30 ET, ESPN

Pregame.com line: Boston College by 1.5

Sagarin says: Boston College by 5.61

Florida State looks to rebound from a drubbing at the hands of Notre Dame last week. Playing at home should help, but it won't be enough. Boston College will handle the hostile environment at Doak Campbell Stadium just fine.

Northwestern (6-4) at Minnesota (5-5)

TV: Noon, Big Ten Network

Pregame.com line: Minnesota by 1

Sagarin says: Northwestern by 3.46

Northwestern has already clinched a spot in the Big Ten championship game, but will it result in a letdown against one of the West division cellar-dwellers? Oddsmakers say yes, but the Wildcats are the stronger team.

TCU (4-6) at Baylor (5-5)

TV: Noon ET, FS1

Pregame.com line: Baylor by 2

Sagarin says: TCU by 2.78

Here's another game where Vegas is putting a little too much stock in the home-field advantage. Don't be surprised if the visiting Horned Frogs pull off the upset.

Michigan State (6-4) at Nebraska (3-7)

TV: Noon ET, Fox

Pregame.com line: MSU by 1

Sagarin says: MSU by 7.12

Michigan State's offense made some critical errors last week in a loss to Ohio State. Look for the Spartans to correct things in Lincoln and turn what's expected to be a nail-biter into a comfortable win. 

Stanford (6-4) at California (6-4)

TV: 7:30 ET, Pac-12 Network

Pregame.com line: Stanford by 2

Sagarin says: Stanford by 6.25

Stanford snapped a two-game skid last week to become bowl-eligible, while the Golden Bears finally broke a 14-game losing streak vs. USC. Look for the Cardinal to stand tall.

Jeff Sagarin’s power ratings show the relative strength of teams. Where applicable, 2.41 points are added to the home team’s rating to calculate the difference.
