In March of this year, 15-year-old Eli Reimer became the first person with Down syndrome to trek to Mt. Everest's Southern base camp. Making the notoriously difficult climb took Eli and his family a year of training and preparation. The Reimers - who undertook the effort to raise money and awareness on behalf of the disabled around the world - are now sharing a very personal, never-before-seen look at Eli's road to his record-setting achievement. Watch and be inspired.

Just Friends? Kirstie Alley Admits Kelly Preston Confronted Her Over Continued Flirtation With ‘Greatest Love’ John Travolta
Fred and Ginger. Brad and Angelina. Kirstie and John? Kirstie Alley says John Travolta was the “great love” of her life and recently admitted that she still flirts with him so much, his wife, Kelly Preston, has confronted her about it!
Alley made the confession during an on-air interview with Howard Stern on Wednesday.
“First of all, I’m obviously not the only woman in the world that’s in love with John Travolta,” Alley said.
But when Stern pressed her about why she has such an attraction, she explained, “He’s very gamey. He and I will sit around doing skits and acting stupid. He’s not afraid to act stupid. He’ll do dumb skits, is the best way to put it.”

“He’s a very generous person,” she continued. He’s every interested. If you ever talk to John, and this is genuine with him, you will become the most interesting thing that he’s ever met in his life. He so wants to know who you are, what you’ve done. … He’s really really interested in people. And he’s obviously very handsome.”
Alley says that sparks first flew between the pair when they were filming Look Who’s Talking together in the 80s. “We both wanted to [act on it], definitely,” she said. But they held off since Alley was married to Parker Stevenson at the time.
Nevertheless, she told Stern, “It took me years to not look at John as a romantic interest. [Now], I’m best friends with his wife [Preston], and that took a while. Because in the beginning she would bust me, like, ‘Are you flirting with my husband?’ And the answer was yes.”
But Stern refused to let all the gushing go without mentioning “the white elephant in the room,” he said: rumors that Travolta is secretly gay.

Alley immediately blasted the persistent allegations, saying, “I’ve known John for 20 years. I know him so well. I also know when I moved to Hollywood, I was told that a couple of people were gay, one of whom that I was dating, and I knew that they weren’t gay … It became a way to dismiss actors, or the thing you could say that people would disregard them in some way.”
“I have three friends that I’ve been told are gay,” she revealed. “And they’re not gay. I know who’s gay. I know who’s bi. I know. You can’t not know something for that long about someone.”
As for reports that he sexually assaulted various men over the years, she insisted, “I think it’s [about] money. … Because when he says, ‘Ok, you’re not getting any money. Go ahead and sue,” they drop the suit. That’s how I know that’s true [that he didn't do anything].’”
Alas, Alley says that no man has measured up to Travolta for a long time: She admitted, “I haven’t had a boyfriend in 13 years.”

There’s no one out there who appreciates a fit babe with smooth, perfect skin more than me. Which is why I’ve invited Luana Mourato and her sexy little self to join us and prove once more why Brazilian hotties are the most looked after Latin goods out there. Here she is, doing her thing in Moombasa lingerie outfits. Convinced yet?
Strangely enough, this is not your typical curvy, bodacious Latina goddess – which is why we haven’t really noticed her, standing into the crowd – but that doesn’t mean she’s not uber cute. Some people may consider her extremely average, but I don’t know.. there’s something about this foxy babe. I just can’t put my finger on it – although, I sure wish I could! I did notice, however, that the make-up artist was practically absent the day this photo-shoot took place.
But, if Luana Mourato doesn’t need make-up, that only proves she’s a natural born beauty, worthy of attention and acknowledgement. Besides, you can beat around the bush all day long, but at the end of the day you’d consider yourself proud to have this supernova chase and hunt you down in your own bedroom.. hell, I’d surrender in an instant. You have to love Brazil! Enjoy!

Looks like North West is getting an early art lesson. And not from 'Ye.
Kim Kardashian shared a photo of her adorable baby daughter at Miami's world famous Art Basel show at the city's convention center on Thursday.
There, she rubbed elbows with Jeff Koons, a true art superstar.
The 33-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared a picture of the culturally rich outing via Instagram, captioning the photo, "Art lessons!"
In the image, young Nori is safely strapped into her stroller seat and posing with a smiling Jeff Koons, one of the biggest names in modern art today.
Famous for pop-art reproductions of ordinary objects, his "Balloon Dog (Orange)" sculpture sold for a record $58.4 million at an auction last month.
He also did the Lady Gaga ARTPOP album cover.
In another convergence of Kim Kardashian and the art universe, Andy Warhol's cousin Monica Warhol was reportedly commissioned to paint portraits of Kim.
While Kanye West would no doubt appreciate the rendering of "the most beautiful woman of all time," it's unclear if he actually sought out the work as reported.
Monica Warhol could be a scam artist in other words.
But fear not, Kimye fans. If Koons is already working with Gaga, just imagine what he can do with a life-size sculpture of Kim Kardashian or North West.
With 'Ye footing the bill, there is literally no telling.

Sugar mama Kris Jenner has introduced boy toy Ben Flajnik to a whole new lifestyle since they started hanging out after her split from Bruce Jenner. The former star of The Bachelor has been spotted driving her Bentley, sitting by her side in VIP at concerts, and even swimming in a Mexican pool with the momager and a 600-lb. sea lion! But now, a rep for PETA tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that the couple’s wet and wild date simply went too far.
“Sea lions are wild animals,” a rep for the animal rights organization says. “They’re not party props, playmates or pool toys! Animals forced to interact with visitors or perform tricks such as handstands are often trained in cruel ways, including beatings and food deprivation.”

“Sea lions are sensitive living beings who belong in the wild, where they have the freedom to swim long distances, lounge in the sun, hunt for food, and raise their families,” the statement continues. “They don’t belong in any millionaire’s backyard swimming pool!” The owner of the pool in question, Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis, has bragged about renting the 600-lb. animal, named Litibu, from a water park near his Punta Mita, Mexico, estate.

At 95 years of age, 27 of those spent in prison, reports are coming in that Nelson Mandela has died. Mandela was known for taking apart the South African apartheid regime and becoming its first black president.
Aw, crap. These things happen in 3s, right?
The post Nelson Mandela Has Died appeared first on The Blemish.
Nelson Mandela passed away at the age of 95.
The 1993 Nobel Prize winner, former President of South Africa and a worldwide icon, died on Thursday, December 5 at 8:50pm local time.
Mandela’s daughter Makaziwe spoke earlier this week about her father, saying he was “very courageous,” before his death.
He spent 27 years behind bars for opposing apartheid in South Africa in 1962 when he was sentenced to life in prison. Mandela served at Robben Island where he endured hard labor and but ultimately released on February 11, 1990.
PHOTOS: The Most Charitable Stars
He became the country’s first black president in 1994. His country had been on the verge of civil war but he brought hope and reconciliation to his people and become a leader for justice throughout the world.
When Mandela left the prison with his wife Winnie by his side it was televised and what he did became a symbol around the world.
“I raised my right fist and there was a roar,” Mandela explained.

South African President Jacob Zuma announced the news of Mandela’s passing.
“Our nation has lost its greatest son, yet what made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human. We saw in him what we seek in ourselves, and in him we saw so much of ourselves.”
Stars have rushed to pay tribute:
Simon Cowell tweeted: “So sad to hear about Nelson Mandela. Rest in peace.”

Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie wrote: “Meeting Nelson Mandela at his house in Johannesburg was a truly memorable moment in life for me. He was an angel.”
Actor Samuel L. Jackson said: “Never met a better person in my life than Nelson Mandela. My sympathy to his family & his country.”
Political leaders were also quick to offer their sympathies, with UK Prime Minister David Cameron saying: ”A great light has gone out in the world. Nelson Mandela was a hero of our time.”
US President Barack Obama gave a TV address, where he said Nelson had “achieved more than could be expected of any man.”
He continued: “We’ve lost one of the most influential, courageous and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with.
“I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example set by Nelson Mandela.”

JUSTIN BIEBER performed a special acoustic show for one of his injured fans this week, star news has learned.
Justin Bieber truly has a soft spot for his less privileged fans.
Just this Wednesday, the charitable pop star held a private acoustic show for a teenage fan named Kate O’Neill, who badly injured her spine and ribs from a serious accident, and 50 of her friends.
It definitely beats what would have been her experience at one of his Australia shows because not only did she get to listen to six songs while up in front, she got to kiss Justin‘s cheek!
Justin even posted a collage of screenshots from the show—during their smooch—and captioned it:
“Me and my girl Kate :) she’s so strong.”
Kate reportedly also said:
“It’s just so crazy, I can’t believe everything that’s happened… It was perfect.”
Watch the magical moment below:

Former South African president and human rights activist Nelson Mandela passed away today at age 95. The former world leader was first admitted for care on June 8, and supporters gathered outside the hospital while he was said to be in critical condition. Mandela was discharged in September after being treated for a recurring lung infection, and he'd spent the past few months receiving at-home care.
As an antiapartheid leader, Mandela was jailed for 27 years before stepping into the political spotlight as the South African president, serving from 1994 to 1999. Over the years, Mandela's efforts toward equality were an inspiration to people across the globe, and in 2009, the United Nations declared July 18 to be Nelson Mandela International Day in honor of his contributions to democracy and peace. During a 2001 interview, Nelson Mandela told Oprah that he didn't fear death, saying, "Shakespeare put it very well: 'Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once. Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, it seems to me most strange that men should fear; seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come.' When you believe that, you disappear under a cloud of glory. Your name lives beyond the grave - and that is my approach."
In a televised announcement, South Africa's current president, Jacob Zuma, said Thursday, "Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father. What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human. We saw in him what we seek in ourselves." President Obama also gave an emotional address following the news, saying "I cannot imagine my life without the example of Mandela." Watch it below.
Nelson Mandela has died at the age of 95, according to reports.
Increased activity was noted around the Johannesburg home of South Africa's first black president, who has been very ill, in the past 24 hours.
Mandela's death was confirmed just minutes ago.
South African President Jacob Zuma announced Mandel's passing, which marks the final chapter in a revolutionary life that changed South Africa forever.
Zuma spoke about his predecessor on national TV.
"Our nation has lost its greatest son, yet what made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human," Zuma said. "We saw in him what we seek in ourselves."
"In him, we saw so much of ourselves."
Family members had gathered after Mandela's eldest daughter said the ailing icon was putting up a fight from what she nonetheless called his "deathbed."
Nelson Mandela spent nearly three months in the hospital with a lung infection earlier this year, but kept pressing on, as has always been his way.
He had been receiving intensive home-based care since he was released in September, but his health slowly declined and he passed away today.
Mandela's journey and struggle remain one of the defining stories of the 20th Century. Trained as a lawyer, he became involved in politics after 1948.
As South Africa moved into a system of racial apartheid, he initially spoke out and espousing non-violent protests with the African National Congress (ANC).
However, he eventually founded a militant organization and was behind a bombing campaign in the early '60s. He was sentenced to life in prison in 1962.
Mandela's imprisonment soon became an international cause, and was eventually released in 1990 after intervention by President F. W. de Klerk.
A free man at last, he spearheaded South Africa's transition from white-minority rule after that, marking the end of apartheid with the aid of de Klerk.
He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and was elected South Africa's first black president in 1994. He stepped down after five years in office.
Mandela is survived by his wife, Graca Machel, six children, and 17 grandchildren.
Baby North West is already hitting up A-list events like Art Basel in Miami and her proud mama Kim Kardashian shared a picture of her daughter making the rounds at the parties.
Kim Kardashian just shared a picture of her six-month-old daughter North, with artist Jeff Koons!
Kim and North attended the famous Art Basel show in Miami this afternoon. The 33-year-old reality star shared the picture, captioned “Art lessons!”
(Koons is famous for his pop-art reproductions of ordinary objects; his “Balloon Dog (Orange)” sculpture sold for a record $58.4 million at Christie’s New York auction house in November, and he recently collaborated with Lady Gaga to create her ARTPOP album cover. He debuted his much-buzzed-about painted BMW at opening night of Art Basel on Dec. 4.)
Incidentally, Kardashian has been in the news this week for her alleged connection to another pop art icon. According to the New York Post’s Page Six, the reality star’s fiance, art lover Kanye West, commissioned Andy Warhol’s cousin, Monica Warhol, to paint a portrait of his future wife, whom he has called “the most beautiful woman of all time.”
“Our love story’s a love story for the ages,” West raved recently of Kardashian. “I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kind of thing.”
Looking at this picture of North – I’m not seeing EITHER of her parents in her! She doesn’t look like Kim or Kanye! I’m sure it will come …. but right now she’s just a pretty cute little girl.

Miley Cyrus is looking for a boyfriend. And denim.
Three months after her confirmed split with Liam Hemsworth, the former Disney star, 21, hinted on Twitter that she is ready to get back into the dating game.
"I want a boyfriend that will wear jean on jean on jean with me," she wrote, while sharing an image of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake circa 2001.
Cyrus does love her some Britney Spears. 4 life.
She wished the "Perfume" crooner a "Happy album release day" this week, and said in her recent documentary, "I'll be a diehard fan for Britney, always."
As for whether she also hearts Liam forever?
Insiders indicate that she has been exchanging "flirty" texts with her former fiance, and that The Hunger Games star wants to reconcile with his ex.
"She's confused about how she feels," a source tells celebrity gossip magazine Us Weekly, while "[Hemsworth] is telling friends he misses her."
Could be all just hearsay and conjecture. The "Wrecking Ball" singer recently told the December issue of Cosmopolitan that her current focus in life is music.
"I need to treat my music like a relationship - give it my time and all the attention it deserves - and that’s my main love right now," she told the publication.
"This is the best time of my life," Miles added. "I'm not going to look back on it and be like, 'I wish I hadn’t been dwelling over a breakup,' you know?"

Dying Farrah Fawcett Told Nurse Ryan O’Neal Was ‘Going To Take’ Andy Warhol Portrait, Mystery Witness Testifies
A former nurse who claims Farrah Fawcett told her that Ryan O’Neal owns one of two Andy Warhol portraits of the late actress can testify in trial of the University of Texas‘ lawsuit concerning whether the school or the actor owns the painting, a judge ruled today.
After hearing testimony from Maribel Avila, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William MacLaughlin said he was convinced she was not someone who could have been easily identified before trial by O’Neal’s lawyers.
“She’s the one who stepped forward and identified herself,’’ MacLaughlin said.
The judge said the university’s attorneys could either depose Avila before she testifies before the jury next week, or ask for a mistrial on grounds the school was prejudiced by her late entry into the case.
PHOTOS: Farrah Fawcett Memorabilia & Personal Belongings To Go Up For Auction
After consulting with his colleagues in the hallway, UT attorney David Beck said his clients would proceed with the trial and take Avila’s deposition.
O’Neal’s lawyer, Martin Singer, told MacLaughlin that Avila’s recollection of Fawcett’s remarks to her could not have been discovered and presented to UT lawyers until the woman recently came forward.
“We had no idea this woman had these facts,” Singer said.
The school sued O’Neal in August 2011, after the disputed Warhol portrait of the actor’s longtime love, mother of his son Redmond, was seen in his home during an episode of the reality TV show `Ryan and Tatum: The O’Neals.’
PHOTOS: Tatum, Ryan & Redmond O’Neal With Friends After Farrah Fawcett’s Memorial
O’Neal says Warhol gave the second Fawcett painting to him. But lawyers for the university maintain the portrait is school property because Fawcett agreed through her living trust to donate all her artwork to the university, which she attended for three years in the 1960s.
Trial of the lawsuit is in its second week in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Fawcett died in June 2009 at age 62.
The six-man, six-woman jury also will decide whether a Warhol napkin drawing that O’Neal is demanding from the school through his cross-complaint belongs to him or the university.

Avila, testifying out of the jury’s presence, said she worked for Fawcett from 2006-07, when the actress was in the early stages of her cancer diagnosis. At that time, Fawcett had her own Warhol portrait hanging in her condominium’s living room and the one O’Neal claims is his at the entrance to her bedroom.
Avila said she told Fawcett she was impressed by the eye color and the portrayal of the actress’ lips in the portrait near the bedroom..
“Let me tell you the story,’’ the Charlie’s Angeles star said, according to Avila, who said the actress explained that Warhol painted one portrait her and the other for O’Neal.
“That’s for Ryan and he’s going to take it later on,” Fawcett said, according to Avila.

“Avila testified she spoke from time to time with O’Neal when he visited Fawcett and was impressed because she had seen him on the big screen.
“When I was young I saw Love Story in my country,” the native of Honduras said.
The actor testified he split time between his Malibu home and Facwett’s condominium in her final years.
Avila said she read about the current trial in the New York Post last month while working as a nanny for her current boss, talent manager David Sweeney. She said she told Sweeney, and that he recommended she call O’Neal’s lawyers and helped put her in touch with them.

MacLaughlin said UT lawyers can also take Sweeney’s deposition.
Jessica Biel opened up at the premiere of her latest film, The Truth About Emanuel, in LA on Wednesday night, revealing a side of her we haven't seen before: her maternal instinct. "I think I've probably had it my whole life, I guess," she said during our red carpet interview.
The actress arrived in an all-black ensemble, complete with a leather jacket that she told us she's had for years. The sexy look is in complete contrast to her character's personality in the thriller. Jessica plays a protective mother, a role that came naturally to her. "It felt very easy for me to sort of be around that baby and be in the mindset of someone who would have a baby and how you would hold it and touch it and love it and coo at it and change its clothes. It came kind of easy to me; I don't know why."
Despite the enthusiasm about motherhood, Jessica and Justin Timberlake are staying busy with their hectic work schedules. Jessica was solo at the event - JT is performing in Houston tonight - but the actress said the two spend time together at home even when they are working and rehearsing for movies. "[Spouses] are there for those moments where you're like, 'I don't know what to do with this. What do you think? Can you help?'"Keep reading to see more photos from Jessica's big night!

Sorry, Miley - Rashida Jones doesn't have to show any skin to get our attention. In the piece she wrote for Glamour's January issue, Rashida shares her thoughts on slut-shaming, feminism, and that time she used the word "whore." And about 100 words in, she became the love of our lives. As Leslie Knope would say, Rashida, "you beautiful tropical fish," tell us more about female sexuality and the pornification of pop culture.
On our current era: "If 1994 was the Year of O.J.'s White Bronco, 2013 was the Year of the Very Visible Vagina."
On her controversial tweets: "I'm not gonna lie. The fact that I was accused of 'slut-shaming,' being anti-woman, and judging women's sex lives crushed me. I consider myself a feminist. I would never point a finger at a woman for her actual sexual behavior, and I think all women have the right to express their desires. But I will look at women with influence - millionaire women who use their 'sexiness' to make money - and ask some questions. There is a difference, a key one, between 'shaming' and 'holding someone accountable.'"
This week's celeb news takeaway: she who comes closest to showing the actual inside of her vagina is most popular. #stopactinglikewhores
— Rashida Jones (@iamrashidajones) October 19, 2013
On using the word "whore": "So back to the word whore. My hashtag was 'stopactinglikewhores.' Key word, acting. Like I said, I'm not criticizing anyone's real sex life; as George Michael tells us, 'Sex is natural, sex is fun.' But the poles, the pasties, the gyrating: this isn't showing female sexuality; this is showing what it looks like when women sell sex."
Keep reading for Rashida's message to pop stars.

The latest is a video spotted by For the Win's Mike Foss, which features an umpire allegedly getting hit in the facemask with a softball on purpose.
After days of silence from Kelly Clarkson‘s camp about the rampant allegations her husband, Brandon Blackstock, cheated, Blackstock has finally spoken out, refusing to deny the reports.
On Wednesday night, he retweeted a post from a follower that read “It’s sad how low life’s [sic] make up rumors about @BBlackstock,” responding, “But it make [sic] for great reading while on the sh*tter: ) lol”

When another reader responded, “If only it was fake,” Blackstock dodged the allegation with a joke, writing back, “No, me shitting is TRUE!”
As Radar has reported, an anonymous woman recently told TheDirty.com that she was having an affair with Blackstock, the father of Clarkson’s yet-to-be-born child. Days after that, another woman emerged on The Dirty claiming to be five months pregnant with Blackstock’s child as well.

A rep for Clarkson told Radar, “We do not comment on our artists’ personal lives.”
But did Clarkson herself speak out in a comment on the original story? A commenter by the name of “Kelly Clarkson” wrote, “This is absolute absurdity.

But at least she’s ready to start going out on dates. As long as the guy is 6 feet tall, physically fit, rich and has no children. Says OK! via Classicalite:
“Kate is lonely and wants to meet her match. She has told all of her friends that she wants to be set up and she’s got a very specific list this time around. She’s older and wiser and coming from a much better place, so she’s not willing to settle for anything less. She says she needs a man who is financially stable, because she doesn’t want to have to worry about money. She’s even said she wants a guy at least 6 feet tall and physically fit. She would prefer a man without children, but that’s not written on stone. She’s open to single dads, too, because the most important thing is that he loves her kids.”
Someone should break it to Kate that beggars can’t be choosers. You want to know the qualities an at least 6ft, physically fit, rich, single, childless guy looks for in a woman?
#1 – Not Kate Gosselin.
Kate must be high if she thinks a guy like that would want to subject himself to 8 screaming kids and a nagging shrew. The only way this is going to happen is if she starts stocking up on rags and chloroform.

I’m not sure cooling off or coling down is what I need at the moment; I find myself taken down by a damn cold and outside is freezing. But, since we’re dealing with a luxury resort in the Maldives.. I think I can manage. Particularly, the luxury Maalifushi by COMO is a new island resort which opens soon. The island is located in the sparkling turquoise waters of the Madives’ southerly Thaa Atoll.
The Maalifushi is comprised of 66 rooms on land and some over-water. Here you may find one of the very, very few reefs in the Maldives not affected by El Nino, so it’s unusually brilliant for diving and snorkelling – you gotta love some pure, blue ocean water. So, it seems only normal for the Maalifushi to have a resident marine biologist on site.
The Maalifushi is the only resort in the atoll, bordered only by a string of uninhabited Indian Ocean islands, including another deserted isle belonging to the resort that can be visited for exclusive clients and incredible romantic and secluded picnics. Anyone thinking Sex on the Beach? No, is it just me that is thirsty?!
Unusually for the Maldives, the seas below the over-water accommodation are not rocky, but perfectly smooth. The interior was imagined by Japanese designer Koichiro Ikebuchi; the island will also have a Japanese seafood restaurant facing the sunset, a 44m pool, a sunken sushi bar and one of the Maldives’ best and biggest spas. Sounds cool, right?

A close examination of the fatal Paul Walker crash video showing the Porsche engulfed in flames reveals a shadowy image appearing to flail.
As a result, speculation is swirling the image, seen roughly 23 seconds into the video, is the actor trying in vain to escape the motorized death trap.
But does the video really show that? Or anything conclusive?Paul Walker Crash
Law enforcement sources investigating Paul Walker's cause of death say that the actor and his friend Roger Rodas never got out of their seats.
Investigators are confident that driver Roger absolutely didn't move and was killed on impact, whereas Paul died of thermal and traumatic injuries.
Thus, the rumor that he's still trying to get out in the video.
Upon further examination, however, police sources say the image seen in video shot right after the crash is not Walker and not an escape attempt.
As for what the image really is? Officials have watched the video, and based on evidence from the site, it appears to be a part of the car's roof burning.Paul Walker Crash Video Paul Walker Car Crash Video
Sources say that based on photos of the wreck, Paul's body was pinned in an area of the car that makes it clear he couldn't have been flailing outside it.
Also, based on the injuries he suffered, investigators think Paul died very quickly after impact, and therefore it's impossible that this is Walker.
It's not clear how long after impact the crash video starts, but clearly more than a few seconds, which is likely all it took for Walker to pass away.
That's fortunate in the sense that at least the 40-year-old star didn't suffer as he might have had he survived half a minute in that towering inferno.
His fans, family and colleagues, of course, suffered an immeasurable loss. Vin Diesel, Tyrese and Paul's father have all given touching tributes.Vin Diesel Gets Emotional About Paul Walker Paul Walker's Dad Speaks on Tragedy Tyrese Breaks Down at Paul Walker Crash Site
Keri Russell and her husband Shane Deary are getting a divorce, after nearly seven years of marriage.
According to her rep, the couple split over the summer.
Russell, 37, and Deary, a carpenter, married on Valentine’s Day in 2007. They have a six-year-old son, River, and a 23-month-old daughter, Willa.
In an interview for Capitol File magazine’s holiday issue, Russell opened up about how she balances raising her children while filming the FX series The Americans in Brooklyn, New York. “I ride my bike to work,” she said. “[It's] much closer to my family. It’s the perfect job for a working mom.”
As it happens, suddenly single Russell had a bit of scare earlier this week when her Brooklyn Heights townhouse was burglarized while she was asleep. “Everyone is fine, and Keri sends her thanks to the police,” her rep told Us on Wednesday, Dec. 4. “She returned to work on The Americans today.”
A spokesperson for the NYPD told Us that two male suspects were charged with burglary and criminal possession of stolen items including a Filson handbag, a laptop, necklace and earrings.
Aw man! What happened with them!? Bummer. I hate divorces.
