Harvey Weinstein’s name has become a household warning. There’s yet more celebrity news on Weinstein’s decades long scandals. According to EOnline.com and The New York Times, Gwyneth Paltrow published a staggeringly long list of cover-ups and lies throughout Weinstein’s career. One major lie Weinstein told was that Paltrow had consented to have sex with him in order to advance her career. Paltrow’s name and Weinstein’s lie was used as a weapon against other actresses in order for them to say “yes” to his advances.

This celebrity news has us cringing. What are some ways to ward off unwanted advances?


Cupid’s Advice:

We all at some point will be in a position where we are made uncomfortable by unwanted advances. Male or female, someone with power can abuse their position to negotiate with you something you don’t want to do. Cupid has relationship advice to help you when you’re in these situations:

1. Call them out: Use your best judgement. Sometimes, calling out a person on their advances is exactly what it takes to end it. If a person thinks they can get away with something because they don’t think you’ll speak up, prove them wrong. Sometimes, though, the person making the advances is too aggressive and calling them out will anger them. Again, use your best judgement, but don’t be afraid to speak up for yourself.

2. Tell them to leave you alone, in no uncertain terms: If you firmly say you want nothing more, sometimes the person coming onto you will stop. If you say this in front of a group, the other people can hold the advancer accountable for their actions. But be careful, doing this makes it much more uncomfortable being alone with that person, so avoid alone time at all costs.

3. Report the behavior: If you’ve asked the person to stop and they haven’t, told them to stop and they won’t, called them out and they don’t care, it’s time to report this behavior. Telling an authority figure will likely mean someone steps in and protects you. There may be backlash, so don’t be alone with that person. Stay strong.

We’re just as excited for the royal celebrity couple as they are! The royal celebrity wedding plans are moving along at lightening speed. Meghan Markle, a Protestant, is making plans to get baptized and confirmed at the Church of England. The televised wedding ceremony and reception are set to take place in Windsor Castle. According to UsMagazine.com, amidst all of the wedding planning, the happy couple are planning a celebrity getaway somewhere sunny, set to come back refreshed for their 2018 wedding!

This duo is heading for a celebrity getaway pre-wedding! What are some benefits to a pre-nuptials getaway?

Cupid’s Advice:

The wedding season is all about you and your partner, so enjoy the time celebrating your partnership. Sometimes, though, wedding planning gets stressful and you need to reconnect with your partner to remind yourselves of the joy for this season. Here’s Cupid’s relationship advice for your wedding planning:

1. Reconnect: Amidst all the stress of wedding planning, it’s easy to start getting frustrated with your future spouse. During these times arguments can start, creating doubt (cold feet) before the wedding.  Taking time away to reconnect with your spouse will solidify your relationship and help remind you both why you’re getting married.

2. Escape the stress: getting away means no wedding planning, which should mean no stress. Your wedding is about you, and at the end of the day, whatever you forgot or whatever goes wrong doesn’t matter because you’re married to the love of your life. As long as you have a great best man and maid of honor, you have nothing to stress about while you’re gone!

3. Celebrate yourselves: In case the stress sucks you in, you need to remind you and your love what the wedding means. You’re celebrating the love you have for each other and the faith you have in your relationship. Taking a mini vacay before the wedding can help you guys celebrate like you should be!

It looks like this celebrity couple is still going strong while abroad! What are some ways travel can bring you closer as a couple?

Cupid’s Advice:

Traveling is an amazing adventure to experience with your significant other. Cupid has love advice to celebrate your relationship:

1. Sharing memories: You’re both in a different part of the world together, and that’s something you won’t forget. Traveling is a perfect way to spend quality time. Although planning a vacation can be stressful, once you make it, it’s a fun and exhilarating experience that can definitely bring you closer.

2. Lots of time to talk: You’ll get to know each other better! Share your passions, talk about everything: life beyond, the galaxies, morals, history — anything! When on vacation with someone, it’s basically like you both live together, therefore you’ll have tons of time to talk and share, and see what being together pretty much all the time is like. This can bring you much closer because there are less distractions on vacation than you would have at home (work, friends, family, etc.).

3. Overcoming vacay obstacles: Team work makes the dream work! Although we would love for vacations to be absolutely perfect, most likely they won’t be… but they can get pretty close! Since you’ll most likely be encountering challenges, you’ll both be able to work together as a team, and you’ll see each other’s strengths and weaknesses, now that is grounds for getting closer.

Can’t wait to book a vacation and bond with your love? Tell us where you’re going. And for those of you who have gone on a couple vacay, share the bonding experience. Comment below!

Selena Gomez is finally opening up about her recent romantic reunion with Justin Bieber! Gomez and Bieber were once infamous for their on-again-off-again romance, but the singer has a positive attitude about her celebrity relationship this time around, reports UsMagazine.com. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, the singer spoke candidly about her past and present feelings for Bieber, saying, “I cherish people who have really impacted my life. So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn’t right. But that doesn’t mean caring for someone ever goes away.” She also revealed that there are no hard feelings toward The Weeknd, and that the celebrity exes remain best friends.

This celebrity news is something a lot of fans have been waiting for! What are some benefits to being open about your relationship triumphs and woes?

Cupid’s Advice:

Being open about your relationship has many benefits that not only help you, but also help others. Check out these tips from Cupid:

1. It’s mature: There is a certain maturity that comes from being open about your woes. Nobody has a perfect relationship that is free from conflict. Being honest about your past mistakes and showing an active desire to change and grow is very mature. People will respect you and shouldn’t look at you any differently!

2. It’s therapeutic: Sometimes, you need a listening ear to help process your feelings and emotions. When you talk to your close, inner circle about the good and bad parts of your relationship, you’re allowing yourself to be vulnerable – which isn’t always easy to do. It is also super beneficial to your mental health and wellbeing, and you’ll have a newfound clarity in due time.

3. It’s helpful to others: We’re all familiar with the saying “everyone has something going on.” We are naturally inclined to conceal the ugly parts of our lives, so you might not even realize one of your coworkers or close friends are going through a rough patch! Sharing your story is helpful to others who are facing similar situations, whether it’s intentional or not.

What are some other benefits of being open about your relationship? Let us know below!

Celebrity News: Matt Lauer Fired from NBC News for ‘Inappropriate Sexual Behavior’

By Rachel Sparks

The latest celebrity news is another sex scandal, and it breaks our hearts. After Harvey Weinstein, Hollywood has been under scrutiny for it’s sexual misconduct. Matt Lauer of NBC was fired overnight Wednesday, November 29 for “inappropriate sexual behavior.” UsMagazinne.com reported the many celebrities who reacted to this news. Andy Cohen reacted to President Donald Trump’s tweets, calling him a hypocrite. Both Rose McGowen and Kathy Griffin, who spoke out against Weinstein, stated they had been keeping an eye on Lauer.

This celebrity news seems to be more of the same lately, unfortunately. What are some ways to get up the courage to speak out when you feel sexually harassed or have been assaulted?

Cupid’s Advice:

Speaking out when you feel victimized is terrifying, but being stuck in a situation you feel like you can’t get out of is worse. Finding the courage to speak up and protect yourself will feel near impossible. Cupid has relationship advice to help a friend, or yourself, make it through this situation:

1. Indirect confrontation: A lot of times you want to take action, but you’re terrified of the repercussions of a direct confrontation. Oftentimes a direct approach isn’t the best answer. If you don’t feel like you have support, fighting a situation alone could backfire. Instead, if you’re being sexually harassed, find a way to distract from the sexual intentions. Spill a drink, take a phone call, fake an emergency. Find a way to get out of the situation and divert attention.

2. Have a partner: The buddy system from grade school is still relevant, especially in today’s world where we are finding out more and more stories of sexual harassment. If you’re going to be with someone you don’t trust, find a way to have a partner. It’s not always possible, but if you can avoid being alone the likelihood of being targeted goes down.

3. #MeToo: Reese Witherspoon used the hashtag to share her own stories of Hollywood harassment. You don’t have to use a hashtag or social media, but the idea behind it is important. Find a way to connect with others who have been through similar situations. Build a community where you feel safe and supported.

Have you or someone you care about been sexually harassed? How did you make it through it? Share your advice below to help someone else survive this all too common tough situation.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced  their engagement through Kensington Palace and opened up about their plans to live in Nottingham Cottage. According to UsMagazine.comthe celebrity couple has received much support from their family. The happy couple met in July 2016 and their wedding is set for spring 2018.

There’s officially a royal celebrity wedding in the works for Spring 2018! What are some ways to decide on the time of year you’ll get married?

Cupid’s Advice: 

At some point, we’ve all thought about our dream wedding. What will you wear? How many people will watch you walk down the aisle? Will you walk barefoot in the sand at some destination wedding or will you keep it traditional? With all of these decisions, have you decided what time of year to celebrate the special occasion? Here’s Cupid’s relationship advice to help you plan your future wedding:

1. Your favorite season as a couple: Did the two of you meet in the spring and every blooming blossom reminds you of your love for each other? Or do you both absolutely adore the golden hues of autumn? Whatever the reason for your choice of season, find a time of year that makes you both happy. Remember, your wedding is for you.

2. Wedding photographs: Great photographs are all about lighting. When you think about what time of year to plan your wedding, think about how light changes throughout the year. If you’re in the north wanting a winter wedding, besides the cold, you should consider that the sun sets very early compared to the rest of the year. Natural lighting is the best kind of lighting for photographs, so if you want the best pictures to remember the day by, take special consideration into when your wedding will be.

3. Invitation accommodations: When you’re planning to have a lot of people come to your wedding, you have to consider other people’s schedules. If you have a lot of family with children, September weddings may have to be nixed out of the planning because of school schedules. Consider the people you’re inviting; if you want a lot of people to come then you need to choose a time most convenient for as many invitees as possible.
