The Buzz From Steve Kemble,

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the Zazza Mornings Show, KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

Lena Dunham recently revealed what her biggest fear is, which sounds odd coming from a woman who has no problem at all barring her naked body. So what she could she be afraid of? The answer is driving! Lena said she has really bad anxiety behind the wheel and considers herself a road risk even after 6 months of driving lessons as she failed her drivers test! She said not everyone should be a mother and not everyone should drive! Lena commented that if anyone ever sees her driving, they should immediately stop her!

Jessica Alba’s The Honest Company is set to make $150 million profit this year, 3 times the revue in 2013, and she might sell it! Well, Gwyneth Paltrow will probably have a few choice words. She has slammed some of The Honest Company products on her Goop site, saying they are unsafe and just not good. The Honest Company is most known for non-toxic nappies featuring appealing prints and other natural products such as bath, body, and house cleaning supplies.  When Gwyneth’s not so kind review came out, Jessica said, “Gwyneth Paltrow probably lives a very similar lifestyle to me, but I didn’t grow up in a bunch of money so my tips and products are more grounded!” Ouch! I say Jessica wins alone on husbands – love that Cash Warren! And who could forget Jessica at the 2013 Golden Globes with that gorgeous tangerine Oscar de la Renta gown!

Michael Sam’s dream of being the first openly gay player to start a regular season NFL game ended yesterday. The rookie defensive end was cut from the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad. He was signed to the Cowboys after failing to make the St Louis Rams 53-man roster. He thanked the Jones family and the entire Dallas Cowboys organization for the opportunity and vowed to continue to fight for an opportunity to prove he can play every Sunday!

A little morning sickness is not going to keep the world’s most gorgeous duchess down! Kate Middleton stepped out looking amazing in a pastel blue gown by British designer Jenny Packham. The gown featured a mid-length underskirt to show off a little leg and the crepe-draped bodice skimmed beautifully across her tiny baby bump. She is so fabulous!

Here’s a fabulous Lindsay Lohan OOPS! Lindsay sent out a tweet to her 8.5 million followers supporting a particular candidate running for presidency in Brazil. What Lindsay did not know, or maybe she did, was that the candidate owns a helicopter company that was seized by federal police for carrying 4.5 tons of cocaine!

It looks like J.Lo is heading to Vegas! She is in final negotiations to perform at Planet Hollywood, current home to the Britney Spears show. Britney’s show would continue along with Jenny from the Block’s. My sources are telling me she will make $26 million for two years. Britney pulls in close to $30 million with her two-year contract. That’s big money for both, but no one touches Celine who gets $33 million PER YEAR for her Vegas show at Caesars Palace.

Glitz and Glam

In today’s world it seems as though there is a large emphasis on having the biggest celebration. With phrases such as “go big or go home” and mega celebrity weddings, who wouldn’t fall into the trap of the perceived social norm? A recently Wall Street Journal article explored some of the negative impacts a lavish wedding could have. Andrew Francis and Hugo Mialon of Emory University stated, “we find evidence that marriage duration is inversely associated with spending on the engagement ring and wedding ceremony.” The two conducted a study on wedding budgets and marriage track records by analyzing more than 3,000 U.S. adults. Their findings led to the conclusion that women “whose weddings had cost more than $20,000 (in 2014 dollars) ended up getting divorced 60% more often than those whose weddings were cheaper. And men who spent between $2,000 and $4,000 on their engagement ring got divorced 30% more often than those who spent between $500 and $2,000.”

This is just one study and there are many factors to consider. From the type of person planning the large wedding to the one who picked out the giant ring, personalities and values could also affect the length of a marriage. Either way, “mega-weddings are becoming more common. Last year, says The Knot, one wedding in 10 cost between $50,000 and $100,000. That number has jumped sharply in recent years.”

Regardless of how big or small your wedding is, creating memories is most important. So don’t let a little problem throw you off. With a Mojuba Emergency Kit, you can be armed for almost any problem that could arise. With a small sewing kit, deodorant, stain remover, shoe shine, and much more, remember the happy moments from your big day.

The Buzz From Steve Kemble,

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the Zazza Mornings Show, KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

The world is mourning the loss of legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, who died last evening at the age of 82 after a long battle with cancer. He was first diagnosed in 2006. Oscar rose to fame designing for First Lady Jackie Kennedy and went on to design for some of the world’s biggest celebrities including most recently, Mrs. George Clooney, Amal Alamuddin. “Dallasite” and former First Lady Laura Bush issued a statement last night praising the designer. He designed the outfits for the second inauguration of her husband George W. Bush as well as designing their daughter Jenna’s wedding dress. She thanked him for always making women feel beautiful. Most recently Laura Bush hosted an exhibit by Oscar de la Renta at the Bush Presidential Library, called ‘Five Decades of Style’. RIP Oscar de la Renta.

Let’s call this “Presidents Are Just Like Us.” President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama went out for a date night dinner in New York at posh Manhattan restaurant Estela. When the waitress politely came over to the table, she told the Commander In Chief that his credit card had been denied. The President told the waitress he really was paying the bills! Turns out the card had not been used much, so the credit card company assumed it was fraud. Luckily the First Lady had her card, so she paid the bill!

The investors of Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas have come out and praised Britney Spears as they claim she singlehandedly helped fill its 2,520 rooms along with boosting the profits to nearly $100 million dollars, up about $20 million since she started! Wall Street gaming experts claim the pop princess has revitalized the property and helped turn the one-time dismal financial center into a real profit center. Britney’s first contract was due to end next year, but has already been extended two more years.

Dancing with the Stars hottie and Mirror Ball Champion Derek Hough has come forth telling stories of how he was bullied as a youth growing up in Utah. He opened up stating, “I was punched in the face, pretty aggressively in the stomach, tied up in trees and left in fields.” While giving words of encouragement to other youth who have been bullied, Derek said he learned at an early age that the people committing the vicious acts are doing things for their own personal reasons. It’s not necessarily because of the person you are and for that, he has chosen to forgive them.

In an interview yesterday, Kris Jenner would not say yes or no as to whether Bruce Jenner was “transitioning his gender.” She said their split has become very public recently, but they have not lived together for two years, so she does not know. Kris stated that people have said this about Bruce since 1976 and that was not her experience with him. Additionally, she was asked if it was true that Bruce is now dating one of her best friends and former assistant. The two were spotted at the Elton John concert in LA. Kris once again said did not know if this is true and claimed to be so busy with her own life she does not have time to think about Bruce’s personal life.

Monica Lewinsky joined Twitter yesterday! You can find her at @MonicaLewinsky. Yesterday, she spoke to the Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit and told the audience, ”I fell in love with my boss, in a 22 year old sorta way, and my boss was the President.” Monica is now 41 and claiming that she was the first case of “Patient Zero” cyber bullying. Her reputation was destroyed worldwide via the Internet. Monica stated her current goal is to help victims of cyber bullying and the shame game.

Thank You Social Media

Posted in: Mojuba

Recently we read a story that detailed the events of one woman’s reunion with what she thought was her long lost wedding dress. Now, another heart warming story was reported about a man who had one lucky day. ABC Denver recently published an article about David Brenner’s lost wedding ring. While in a meeting with Greg and Sue Dorsey, Greg received a text from a friend about a lost ring in Vail, Colorado. The ring has an inscription stating, “All my love, Sue.” While Greg hadn’t lost his ring, he showed the message to David, who also has a wife named Sue. He couldn’t believe it stating, “The fact that this guy gets a text while he’s in front of me and asks that question; the chances that I ever had mentioned my wife’s name; all those things make that, as much to me, as unlikely as the ring ever being found in the first place,” said David.

From Vail's Twitter

He pulled up the news story and got in contact with the writer. An employee found it during regular maintenance work. He said to ABC, “How can you see a ring five years later? How it is not further down in the underbrush?” David was able to confirm ownership of the ring once additional information was provided. Vail offered David and his wife Sue a free night to stay to come visit and get the ring back. Social media is a powerful tool that can help in unexpected ways!

From the picture posted, it looks like they had a beautiful wedding ceremony. Don’t forget to be prepared for any problems that may come up on your big day. Mojuba Emergency Kits will be there to assist with any issue. The kit includes krazy glue, tissues, a sewing kit, advil, bobby pins, stain remover and much more.

We planned out all the little things that make a wedding special, like treats, a fun send-off, and of course an amazing portrait session.”

From Pop Wed Co.

After scouting various locations, Maggie and Steve will match each couple to a unique venue. For example, earlier this month a couple was brought to the American Art Museum. This resulted in one of a kind photos taken throughout the gallery and an intimate ceremony held in the atrium.

Another couple was brought to the Smithsonian Natural History Museum to tie the knot. Overseen by the giant elephant, Fénykövi, the couple made it through most of the ceremony before security came in. Part of the fun of working with Pop Wed is that you never know what will happen. But wedding officiant Steven pushed through and pronounced them husband and wife just before exiting the building in order to list the museum on their certificate.

Wedding Dress Reunion

Posted in: Mojuba

Recently a New York resident stumbled upon a treasure she thought was long gone. The Staten Island Advance published an article about Nicole Pagliaro’s wedding dress that was brought to a dry cleaners right before Hurricane Sandy hit in the fall of 2012. Hector Pacheco’s New York City store was destroyed in the storm, but the wedding dress survived. However, Pacheco didn’t know the name of the owner. So when he reopened his store over a year after Sandy, he immediately put the dress up in the window. A couple weeks ago, Nicole instantly recognized the dress when taking a different route to work. She even had the ticket for what she thought was long lost.  Now reunited with the dress, Nicole is saving it for her little girl’s wedding day.

Are the tears falling yet? I want to see the wedding pictures when her daughter gets married!
