Grab the Tissues: Netflix Releases New Gilmore Girls Trailer and Rory Is Unemployed

The Gilmore Girls are back in town!

In a new trailer released by Netflix for the highly anticipated reboot Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, fans see their favorite ladies doing what they do best — drinking coffee.

The full trailer begins with Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Lorelai (Lauren Graham) chatting over breakfast while trying to recall what they did the night before — because it was a blur — all the while making witty pop cultural references.

The pair are then shown taking a town tour, spending time bickering with Luke (Scott Patterson), saying their goodbyes to Grandpa Richard (Edward Herrmann), all the while having Grandma Emily (Kelly Bishop) question their lifestyle choices as well as her own.

“I thought I knew exactly what I wanted and where I was going, but, lately, I don’t know, things seem hazier,” Lorelia says in a voiceover. “We’re happy. Luke and I are happy.”

As for Rory, she isn’t having the best of luck.

“I’m feeling very lost lost these days,” she says in the trailer. “I have no job. I have no credit. I have no underwear!”

The beloved show will also feature Milo Ventimiglia, Jared Padalecki, Scott Czuchry, and Melissa McCarthy to name a few.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premieres Nov. 25 on Netflix.

Lady Gaga Gets Matching ‘Joanne’ Tattoo with Her Father

When Lady Gaga gets a tattoo, it always has a special meaning. She had a David Bowie tattoo inked after her tribute performance to the late singer at the Grammys. She got matching “unity” tattoos with sexual assault survivors from her Oscars performance. Now, Gaga and her father, Joe Germanotta, are honoring the subject of her latest album, Joanne, with matching ink.

The singer’s new LP is named after Gaga’s aunt (Germanotta’s late sister), Joanne, who died at age 19 of lupus complications after suffering emotional trauma from a sexual assault.

“Got Joanne tattooed on my arm in her actual signature,” Gaga explained in an Instagram post showing off her new addition. “My dad got one too. With an angel on his shoulder.”

On Monday she revealed on The Howard Stern Show that she also has an angel tattoo on her skull, calling her late aunt her “guardian angel or spirit guide.”

“She’s like this goddess who we worshiped in our family our whole lives,” Gaga explained. “Her picture was always up, and it was framed so beautifully in the house. We talked about her all the time, every family meal.”


She also dedicated a song to her aunt, but Gaga says she feels her spirit more now that she’s performing the album than she did while writing it. “I feel that I’m channeling her more now because I’m finished with the record and I can feel her spirit and the excitement of her message coming through the album.”

Gaga is currently kicking off her album debut with a dive bar tour across the country.

Father Says He ‘Hates’ Teen Daughter Accused of Killing Her Stepmom: Reports

As 15-year-old Jenna Oakley reportedly prepares to be tried as an adult for the murder of her stepmother, there is one person who won’t be speaking up in her defense: her father.

“I can tell you I hate my daughter,” Phillip told the Lexington Herald-Leader last month. “I do not care about my daughter. I’m worried about the people that I need to protect, and that’s not one of them.”

Jenna is charged with murder and theft after she allegedly killed her stepmother, Rhonda Oakley, in Danville, Kentucky, last month, ABC13 reports. (Rhonda’s teenage stepson reportedly discovered her body.) Jenna then allegedly stole Rhonda’s car and drove to New Mexico with her 20-year-old boyfriend, Kenneth Nigh.

The couple was reportedly caught by authorities in the parking lot of a Motel 6 two days after the killing.

Nigh, who is charged with one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, tried to kill himself while in custody and was taken to a New Mexico hospital, where he later died, according to WDRB.

(Reports conflict about Nigh’s death, according to the Herald-Leader: Authorities could not confirm to the paper that he had died and earlier said he was on life support.)

Jenna was indicted on Thursday by a grand jury as an adult, the Herald-Leader reports.

Her father said he is glad she has been caught: “The whole time I knew who did this. And so no, it is not a surprise. I just want her to get what she deserves,” he told ABC13.

Phillip told the station that people “knew things” about what was going on between his daughter and her boyfriend, but did not elaborate. He said he hopes justice is served.

“I have no remorse for whatever happens to Jenna,” Phillip continued. “She deserves everything she gets.”

It is unclear whether Jenna has an attorney and whether a court date has been set for her arraignment, at which she will enter a plea to her charges.

Neither local authorities nor Phillip immediately responded to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

5 Historic Things That Have Happened Since the Cubs or Indians Won the World Series

It’s been nearly seven decades since the Cleveland Indians won the World Series, and over 100 years since the Chicago Cubs were victorious, yet both teams have a chance to take home a trophy to their long-suffering fans starting Tuesday night.

The best-of-seven series kicks off in Ohio, giving the Indians their first chance since 1997 (they last won in 1948), and the Cubs their first appearance since 1945 (they famously last won way back in 1908). It’s safe to say a lot has happened in the time passed.

We lost one president to an assassination, and now we’re poised to elect either a reality TV alum or a former First Lady. We made it through numerous wars, and invented technology that people couldn’t even dream up.

Here’s all the crazy, significant moments in American history that have happened since either team nabbed the coveted title.

1. The Super Bowl started

When this year’s teams were last at the top of the pack, football was yet to be king. Nineteen years after the Indians took the championship, Super Bowl I was played on January 15, 1967 (although it was then known as the first AFL-NFL Championship Game).

In the face-off, the Green Bay Packers dominated the Kansas City Chiefs an impressive 35-10.

This year’s big game is America’s 51st.

2. We’ve gone through 19 American Presidents since the Cubs Won

We’ll be less than two weeks shy of a new President when either the Cubs or Indians clinch the series. Impressively, the country has been run by 19 different leaders since the Cubs last took the World Series win — including our current President, Barack Obama.

Teddy Roosevelt was in office at the time of Chicago’s victory, and Harry S. Truman was our fearless leader in 1948 when the Indians were crowned kings.

Interesting fact: women didn’t even yet have the right to vote when the Cubs were champs — and wouldn’t for another 12 years..

3. We’ve visited space

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong famously became the first man to step foot on the moon.

Since then, NASA has successfully launched over 100 manned flights into outer space. Currently, NASA has a Reconnaissance Orbiter on Mars — but the Cubs and Indians haven’t secured the Commissioner’s Trophy in decades.

4. We got the Internet

These days, Americans don’t even have to leave the house to order groceries, go clothes shopping or even pick up dinner — all thanks to the Internet. It’s been 26 years since Tim Berners-Lee formally introduced the World Wide Web (sorry, Al Gore),  a game-changing technological advancement 43 years after the Indians last won the Series.

In the time that followed, we’ve been introduced to smartphones, personal computers and (most importantly) Netflix.

5. Nike, ESPN, Sports Illustrated and more were founded

No network is more synonymous with sports than ESPN, but the global channel didn’t even exist until 40 years after the Indians’ most recent Series win.

Other major athletic publications and brands that weren’t even yet thoughts in 1948? Sports Illustrated, which launched in 1954, and sports gear behemoth Nike, which was founded 10 years later.

Not to mention Adidas (1949), Reebok (1958) and Under Armour (1996).

Zayn Malik Invites Fans to ‘Judge Me on My Own Terms’ in New Self-Titled Autobiography

Zayn Malik was only a teenager when One Direction skyrocketed to fame, and now, six years later, he’s reflecting on an unexpected life as one of music’s biggest stars.

Malik’s upcoming first autobiography, which shares his first name, will encompass his journey from The X Factor to “Pillowtalk.”

“When I was still in One Direction, fans would write stories based on me and the other lads and publish them online,” Malik writes in an except from Zayn. “It’s crazy to think that we inspired so many different stories and the opportunity for so much creativity from so many people all over the world.”

Of opening up in such a personal way, Malik says, “I’m going to show you as much as I can so that you can judge me on my own terms, not on what the press or anyone else says.”

Zquad members anxious to read more about the pop star? There’s good news — ahead of the book’s release, Malik is sharing more of his personal thoughts on Wattpad.

In addition to a collection of stories, notes and drawings, Malik will also share never-before-seen photographs with Wattpad visitors.

ZAYN will be released on Nov. 1, and can be pre-ordered online here. Fans can read some of Malik’s thoughts and about his inspiration on Wattpad before the autobiography’s release.

James Corden’s Sister on ‘Surreal’ NFL Bit: ‘You Aren’t Prepared for These Guys So Quickly Stripping Off!’

A knack for comedy clearly runs in the Corden family.

James Corden‘s sisters, Ruth and Andrea, provided a little window into their goofy sense of humor when their talk show host brother asked them cover the NFL’s visit to the U.K. for a special segment of The Late Late Show.

Last year, James sent his parents, Malcolm and Margaret, to the game and thought it would be fun to get his siblings to follow suit at this year’s matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Their YouTube video, which has racked up more than 550,000 views by Tuesday morning, shows them trying their hand at football maneuvers, questioning Dallas Clark at a press conference and entering the locker room to interview players – including Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles.

“The whole thing was brilliant fun,” Ruth tells PEOPLE.

Ruth also says she and Andrea, who works as a part-time PA helping James, had a giggle as they entered the locker room at Wembley Stadium earlier this month.

“It was so surreal,” she adds. “You aren’t prepared for these guys so quickly stripping off! There was a lot of press. I kind of feel that doesn’t happen in our football. It seemed normal for them but from a British perspective it was different from how we would do it, and definitely interesting!”

She adds, “Me and my sister had been talking about Blake Bortles all weekend – he’s one of the big pin-ups of NFL. We ended up sitting next to him.”

Ruth, who goes by Ayres in her professional life as project manager of SelfHarmUK’s branch of Youthscape — which Prince William and Kate visited in August — admits she wasn’t a fan of NFL. “I still don’t really understand it,” she says. “But you can tell it’s incredibly fun. The game was right to the wire and you can see why it’s so popular.”

Despite the success of her television bit, Ruth says she isn’t giving up the day job. “I love my job and incredibly fortunate that I work for a great charity with a great ethos and I get to work with some amazing young people.”

This wasn’t the first time James involved his sister in something he created. In his breakthrough BBC show Gavin and Stacey, which he co-wrote, his character of Smithy had a sister called Rudi, with whom he would fight, hug or rap.

“We could go from being totally in love with each other and having fun and before you know it, falling out,” she explains of their home life. “That silly relationship and the raps that they do is kind of the way we were.”

“All the fun stuff, those nuances, partly comes from us. All three of us as siblings have been silly together and have a similar sense of humor. We are incredibly fortunate that fun was a big part of our childhood. We have got great parents – my dad is incredibly quick-witted. We have grown up in this sense of fun.”

Now, she just has to persuade James to let her and sister Andrea cover the Super Bowl.

Aaron Carter Got ‘Heavy Into Drinking’ After His Dancing With the Stars Stint

Aaron Carter gave a candid interview for Saturday’s Oprah: Where Are They Now?, where he admitted that he turned to drugs and alcohol to self-medicate for depression he experienced after his parents’ divorce and his time on Dancing with the Stars.

The 28-year-old former child star competed in season 9 of the hit ABC dancing competition, which aired in the fall of 2009. He and his dancing partner Karina Smirnoff placed fifth on the show.

Prior to the show, Carter was financially drained — living in his brother Nick’s guest house and heavily partying with drugs to numb the pain he felt from his parent’s 2003 divorce.

“I loved my family being together,” Aaron explained, of his depression. “I did not want to see them divorce. I just couldn’t dwell on it. I couldn’t think about it too much — I had to block it out.”

But when Dancing with the Stars came calling, Aaron felt invigorated. He was hopeful the appearance would lead to a pop music comeback.

Despite new management and meetings with heavy-hitting producers and record executives, “nothing ever came into fruition.”

“They didn’t want to touch me,” Aaron said. “They didn’t want to do anything.”

It was then that Carter reached for the bottle.

“I started getting really heavy into drinking and was telling people, ‘I’m on a real bad path right now. I need help,’ ” he explained.

In 2011, Aaron checked himself into the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California “to heal some emotional and spiritual issues he was dealing with,” his manager at the time, Johnny Wright, previously said in a statement.

He said he’s been on the straight and narrow ever since.

His sister, Leslie, wasn’t so lucky. She died on Jan. 31, 2012 of a drug overdose. She was 25 years old.

Aaron said he had reached out to his sister to get her help, but couldn’t get her the money for rehab in time. Her death helped put some of his pains into perspective.

“Out of all the experiences that happened with my sister’s passing,” Aaron revealed. “I just learned that life means so much to me — more than just money and fame.”

5-Year-Old Texas Boy Saves Brother From Burning Car: ‘He’s An Amazing Little Man’


The Houston Police Department and the Houston Fire Department honored a 5-year-old boy for his bravery and heroism on Friday after he rescued his brother from a burning vehicle.

Isiah Church’s stepfather, Glenn Church, was driving a moving van from Michigan to Texas with Isiah and his sleeping 2-year-old brother, Jeremiah Church, on October 14 when the vehicle was involved in a fatal, fiery accident.

Glenn was killed instantly in the crash and Jeremiah became trapped under the van. Isiah dug through debris, found his toddler brother and pulled him to safety.

“He’s an amazing little man,” the boys’ grandmother, Sandi Watkins, tells PEOPLE. “He’s always watching out for his little brother. He loves his brother so much.”

Jeremiah suffered second and third degree burns in the horrific accident with a majority of the skin damage located on his arms, chest and face. He received a skin grafting operation on Friday at the Shriners Hospital for Children in Galveston.

“It’s amazing that these two children made it out alive, truly a miracle,” says Watkins. “Jeremiah is doing phenomenally, he looks better every single day.”

The boys’ mother, whom Watkins would like to remain anonymous, was driving in a car ahead and is currently hospitalized for emotional trauma. An investigation into the cause of the accident is underway by the Houston Police Department.

“The boys lost everything they had in that fire,” says Watkins. “So we’re just taking it one day at a time now. Isiah is doing absolutely amazing, he’s talking to a psychologist and we don’t bring up the accident.”

Watkins says Isiah saw his brother for the first time on Friday.

“We didn’t think he would be able to handle seeing Jeremiah up close with all the burns, so we had him stand 30 feet away and say hello,” she explains. “That night he said ‘Nana I can’t believe baby Jeremiah is alive! I want to give him a great big kiss and hug!’

Houston Police Department acting chief Martha I. Montalvo presented Isiah with a public service award, silver badge and backpack with toys for his actions.

“Isiah Church is a hero in my eyes.  This was a tragic event and, as a mother myself, as a parent, I was touched by what this child did.  He didn’t think of himself, but thought of his brother,” Montalvo tells PEOPLE. “Isiah had been ejected from the vehicle and, I’m told, he motioned to his brother to get out of the vehicle that was on fire. When his brother didn’t, Isiah found a way to get the door and got his brother out. He lost his dad in the accident, who had been ejected, but he still thought of his brother first.”

“As police officers, we’re trained what to do, but Isiah already knew. I told him to come back in a few more years, we need police officers like him.”

Watkins was able to get custody of the boys with help from Houston notary Tracee Jordan who read about the accident on the local news.

“I knew I had to help out this family they have been through so much it absolutely broke my heart,” Jordan tells PEOPLE. “I have been staying by Sandi’s side helping her cope and deal with everything.”

Jordan set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the boys and agreed to help the family with all necessary paperwork for free.

“Through this tragedy we have received the most amazing support from kind strangers,” says Watkins. “Isiah and Jeremiah will be okay in the end, they are strong and they’ll get through this together.”
