Inside Karlie Kloss’ Los Angeles Airbnb

What better place to nurse your supermodel jet lag than a Beverly Hills mansion?

Karlie Kloss is the latest star to take up residence in a gorgeous home instead of a 5-star hotel, courtesy of Airbnb. The model recently touched down in Los Angeles to shoot her new Netflix show, Bill Nye Saves the World, after a stint in Asia (during which she stomped the streets of Tokyo wearing space buns and a dragon-print silk jacket with sister Kimberly and visited Hello Kitty in Taiwan) and crashed in true superstar style, at a sprawling 5-bedroom home with a pool worth a cool $10 million.

The contemporary villa is decked out in luxe furnishings, suitable for a crowd (the house sleeps 10) or a party (it’s available for events, fyi). Karlie’s temporary retreat also features a fireplace in the master bedroom, where the bed sits on a raised platform and French doors lead directly out onto the terrace.

In a video thank you note posted on Instagram, Kloss says “Thank you Airbnb for this complimentary stay. I’ve had the most fabulous time in L.A.,” and explains why it’s so nice to have a house to herself, “I live out of a suitcase most of the time, so it’s really nice to have a real house and a fabulous pool.”

A massive kitchen and multiple dining spaces make the house ideal for entertaining an, ahem, squad of L.A.-based friends. Though the home’s location, north of Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills, also means there’s no shortage of celeb-studded dining and nightlife institutions nearby.

Karlie is hardly the first A-lister to take Airbnb up on a complimentary stay. During the 2016 Summer Olympics, her fellow Victoria’s Secret models Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima stayed in a pair of Rio de Janeiro penthouses available for rent on the site. In August, Kim Kardashian took up residence in a $25 million Manhattan penthouse for a several months free of charge while husband Kanye headed out on his Saint Pablo tour.

Newly Single Anthony Bourdain Says His Work Schedule ‘Comes at a Cost’ to His Marriage

Anthony Bourdain has a vision of what a “normal” family is: “It’s one of those weird sitcoms where Mom and Dad and their kids all sit down at the table and eat dinner together.” But when it comes to his own life, “that’s just not the way it ever was,” he says.

Traveling 250 days a year while working on projects, like his CNN show Parts Unknown, means the chef had to miss his fair share of family meals. “I’m living the dream,” Bourdain, 60, tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue, on stands Friday. “I have the best job in the world and I’m very grateful for that. And I don’t plan on walking away from that any time soon, I can assure you—but it comes at a cost.” Most recently, that cost was to his marriage to mixed martial artist, Ottavia Busia, which ended earlier this year.

“Having been a chef for many years was in someway good preparation for this phase of my life,” says Bourdain, who just released his first cookbook in over 10 years, Appetites. “As a chef, I didn’t know any normal people either, I had no real home life and was always working when everyone else was playing, and was always somewhere out there.”

Bourdain compares his often-lonely life on the road to David Bowie’s song “The Space Oddity.” “I relate very much to that,” he says, “like I’m sitting in a tin can orbiting the earth for much of the time.”

“I now wake up alone in lot of faraway places looking at beautiful vistas and doing interesting things,” he continues. “But the truth is I’m alone for most of that time.”

Despite their recent split, the chef says him and Busia will continue to live their “very separate lives” — with one shared priority: their nine-year-old daughter, Ariane. “As a family, I think we’ve done a really good job and we’re doing a really good job and would like to keep it that way,” he says. “As a marriage, clearly its not ideal but there’s no injured party here.”

And for the few days a year Bourdain is home in New York City, his “normal” is making Ariane the center of his world. “On a typical day, I’m going to wake up early, prepare my daughter’s school lunch, walk her to school, pick her up at school and maybe we’ll cook dinner together,” he says. “That would be ideal.”

EpiPen Rival is Back to Provide a Cheaper Option for Patients Faced with Skyrocketing Costs

It’s been nearly three months since Mylan, the company that owns EpiPen, controversially raised the price of a two-pack to more than $600. Now its main competitor is coming back on the market.

Kaleo Pharmaceticals is reintroducing Auvi-Q for 2017, and hopes to offer the epinephrine auto-injector at a lower price than the EpiPen.

“It is not in the best interest of patients or physicians to have high out-of-pocket costs,” Spencer Williamson, Kaleo’s president and chief executive, tells Forbes. “We’re engaging with all of the stakeholders — wholesalers and pharmacy benefits managers — to insure that we can provide this innovative technology to patients and that they can afford it. And we are going to assure that the out-of-pocket is going to be low for patients.”

One of the only alternatives to the EpiPen, the Auvi-Q was pulled out of production last year. It wasn’t as widely known as its competitor, reporting just 353,589 prescriptions in 2015 (the company’s best year), compared to EpiPen’s 3.4 million. Additionally, Sanofi, which owned the rights to the Auvi-Q at the time, received a few reports that the injector wasn’t delivering enough medication.

While the Auvi-Q design hasn’t changed, Kaleo has revamped production to be fully automated with 100 quality control checks, according to NPR. The Auvi-Q is smaller than the EpiPen, and is about the size of a credit card, with the thickness of a smartphone. It also features audio instructions that some users may find helpful during an allergic attack.

Mylan, which is currently under investigation by Congress for a 500% price hike since taking over the life-saving product in 2007, announced in August that it will introduce a generic version of the EpiPen, priced instead at $300 for a two-pack.

“We understand the deep frustration and concerns associated with the cost of EpiPen to the patient, and have always shared the public’s desire to ensure that this important product be accessible to anyone who needs it,” Mylan’s CEO, Heather Bresch, said in a statement shared with PEOPLE.

Kaleo intends to sell the Auvi-Q at an affordable price, even for those without health insurance, and says the market competition between them and the EpiPen will help patients who need the life-saving product.

Eric Edwards — who invented the Auvi-Q with his twin brother after growing up with severe allergies to eggs, shellfish and nuts — is thrilled to see it back on the market.

“This is personal for us,” Edwards, now a vice president at Kaleo, tells Forbes. “I’m a patient who may have to respond with this product not only for myself but for my child, and we are committed to making sure that Auvi-Q is going to work during an allergic emergency.”

Cats is back on Broadway, and now puppies are taking to the ice!

The New York Islanders welcomed a group of adorable adoptable puppies to their practice space for a photo shoot that was both strong and sweet.

All of the pups packed on to a bus from their temporary home at North Shore Animal League to visit the boys in blue and orange.

Instead of practicing, the players spent the day posing with the pups for a good cause. The photos from the day of “hard work” will be turned into a calendar that will be sold to benefit North Shore Animal League, the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization.

One of the skaters, defenseman Calvin de Haan, became so smitten with his modeling partner, he decided to adopt the cutie. Unable to stand 24 hours without the pup, de Haan and his girlfriend visited the shelter and adopted the canine just a few hours after the shoot was over.

Now that’s puppy love!

Spooky Soiree! Inside Michelle Stafford’s Halloween-Themed Bash for Son Jameson’s First Birthday

It’s a monster bash!

On Sunday, two-time Emmy-winning soap star Michelle Stafford threw her 1-year-old son Jameson Jones Lee the party of a lifetime to mark his first birthday. The theme? Halloween, of course.

The family of three, which includes Stafford’s 6½-year-old daughter Natalia Scout Lee, really got into the spirit by dressing as a vampire family, complete with fangs and gothic costumes that would make The Munsters jealous.

“It was an amazing party. We had to celebrate Jameson in style!” the General Hospital actress, 51, tells PEOPLE exclusively of her son’s big day, which was held at her Los Angeles home.

Stafford tells PEOPLE that the party is a nod to a favorite family tradition she had growing up, when her parents would decorate their home to be a haunted house during the Halloween season.

Family and friends in attendance included Stafford’s fellow soap stars Finola Hughes, Tracey Bregman, Maura West, Nadia Bjorlin and Christian LeBlanc, who were treated to a spine-tingling selection of sweets.

Los Angeles bakery Whisk and Whittle provided a creepy crawlers cake, skeleton cookies, caramel apples and vampire bat cookies for the bash.

The dessert table itself was designed by Marlan Willardson and Laurén LaRocca of Twink + Sis.

Decked out in kid-friendly décor, the spooktastic spread included a toddler-sized piano, spiderweb tablecloth, “bones,” gray pumpkins from Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch and #MakeMealtimeMatter gold plates from Cheeky.

Although former PEOPLE blogger Stafford has opened up in the past about her struggles, including challenges of considering adoption and her sister’s cancer diagnosis, the mom of two says she’s now celebrating a fantastic time in her life.

“It’s been a wild and crazy and spectacular year,” she says. “I am the luckiest woman on the block!”

Chip and Joanna Gaines Are Getting Into the Breakfast Business

Fixer Upper fans can now sleep easy knowing why Chip and Joanna Gaines purchased the historic Elite Café in Waco, Texas this past May.

The HGTV stars revealed to Southern Living they are reviving the cafe that shut down in February and turning it into a breakfast restaurant. “I’ve always been a breakfast connoisseur,” Chip told the magazine. “I always do a heavy, bigger breakfast, but Jo is the exact opposite. She was kind enough to come with me on this one, and we are going to do up a breakfast joint here in town.”

The couple, who are no strangers to the food industry (they also own a bakery, Silos Baking Co.), are now getting their hands dirty redesigning the joint and bringing it back to life.

“The restaurant itself is literally one big giant kitchen,” says Chip. “When we first got in there, it was all the things you can imagine—dingy, musky. But if I took you in there today, you’d be like ‘Oh! This is so clean, everything smells so great.’ Those are a few benefits of a little bit of elbow grease and hard work on the front end.”

Though purchasing the café, which originally opened in 1919, wasn’t applauded from the start, Gaines says people will be impressed.

“Now, everybody that comes in tells me how smart I was to have bought this property,” he says. “Six months ago, I wasn’t getting as many encouragements. But the restaurant has some serious history that we’re going to tap into.”

Inside the Doting Facebook Posts of Dad Who Leapt from Bridge with Sons in His Arms

An apparently disgruntled New Jersey father leapt to his death on Monday with his two young children in his arms in what police have called an attempted murder-suicide — but the man’s social media posts show a different side of the once-doting dad.

“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of how I lived in, or the kind of car I drove … but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child,” John Spincken, 37, wrote of his oldest son in a November 2014 Facebook post.

Police are still working to determine what drove Spincken, of Pequannock, New Jersey, to jump from an overpass and into a wooded area near the Wanaque River on Interstate 287 after an argument with his wife.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, but his sons, ages 1 and 3, are expected to survive.

In a December 2014, Spincken wrote on Facebook of another nearly-fatal experience one of his boys endured, explaining in a lengthy post about an incident in which his youngest son stopped breathing and was only saved thanks to his father.

“Although I cannot remove the horrific image of my frantic wife holding my lifeless blue son, I am grateful of my instinctive reactions as well as caring neighbors and a fast acting EMT squad. I’ve never performed CPR in my entire life nor have I ever takin a CPR class,” Spincken wrote.

“I instinctively saved Frankie’s life with a few simple breathes of my own and was able to buy him enough time before our neighbor, which is a nurse, could help in reviving him,” Spincken wrote. “All of this happened within a matter of minutes which felt like an eternity.”

When Spincken’s youngest son made it home from the hospital, he shared his gratitude and relief with his Facebook friends, writing in December 2014, “We thank you all for your prayers, love and support through this difficult time.”

His posts paint a different picture of the man who police said jumped about 100 feet off of the structure this week, carrying both kids. They do not hint at any family problems.

In March 2014, he shared an inspirational quote that read, in part, “Maybe, just maybe, the only thing that needs to shift in order for you to experience more happiness, more love, and more vitality, is your way of thinking.”

(Spincken’s family did not immediately provide a comment.)

Pequannock police Capt. Christopher DePuyt previously told PEOPLE that police received a call from a friend of Spincken’s wife claiming that Spincken had threatened to harm his children.

In July 2003, Spincken was sentenced to 60 days in jail after pleading guilty to violating a domestic violence restraining order and unlawful possession of a weapon, NJ.com reports, citing court records. It is unclear who filed the restraining order.

But Capt. Depuyt previously told PEOPLE that Monday’s incident marked the first time the Pequannock Police Department has been called about a domestic dispute involving Spincken.

Authorities were left stunned that the boys survived the fall, Depuyt said.

“They did make contact with some trees and foliage on the way to the ground, and the theory is that that helped break some of the fall. But short of that, it’s a miracle that they survived,” he said.

When officials responded to the scene just after 8 p.m. Monday, Spincken’s body was in a wooded area under the bridge, Depuyt says, and the children were conscious and crying nearby.

The man’s Facebook page is filled with photos and sweet videos of his children. In August 2016, replying to a comment on a photo he posted of both of his sons, he wrote, “Not a day goes by that I don’t feel grateful and appreciative.”

Among other posts, Spincken celebrated Father’s Day last year by quoting Elizabeth Stone: “Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” He celebrated Mother’s Day the previous year with a shout-out to his own mother and his “beautiful” wife.

Spincken’s earliest available Facebook post about his sons, from October 2013, is similarly gushing.

“I’m a dad!” he wrote. “Best feeling in the world!”
