Paris Jackson Shares Rare Childhood Home Video to Celebrate Big Brother Prince's Birthday

Paris Jackson is taking a trip down memory lane — and giving fans a rare glimpse into her super private childhood.

The 19-year-old daughter of late pop icon Michael Jackson shared a home movie featuring her younger self goofing around with older brother Prince in honor of his 21st birthday, on Tuesday. The footage featured the siblings playfully fighting for camera time while someone filmed and encouraged them, “Let me see you dance.” Prince busted out a few dance moves before Paris got a close-up and made a funny face.

“My dearest brother. i could fly to the moon and back a thousand times and the distance still wouldn’t amount to how much i adore you,” Paris captioned the video post on Instagram. “I’ve always looked up to you, and to this day you’re still the greatest role model i could ever hope for. i miss these days where we could wrestle and i’d still have a chance at winning, though. i miss playing hot wheels and my little pony with you, i miss fighting like pirates and trying to cast spells with our harry potter wands.

“i miss the Saturdays where we would sleep in and eat porridge and OJ and watch gargoyles and  (and sometimes cartoons in arabic?), and staying up late listening to you tell us wild bed time stories that always had a crazy twist at the end.”

She continued, “You’ve always been my best friend in the whole wide universe and i’m so lucky to have you in my life. i couldn’t have wished for our friendship to turn out any better. we may not have our water guns and crash bandicoot, but we have so much more. you’re the most fun, genuine, determined and hilarious person i know. and it makes ma soul happy to know dat i can always count on you, and no matter where we are in the world and in life, my home is with you and the little guy. i love you so much, gooko. i’m so proud of you. happy birthday.”

In an interview with the Today show in October, Prince gushed about his bond with Paris and 15-year-old brother Blanket Jackson, who now goes by B.G. or Bigi. “Me and my siblings get along really well — especially my sister,” Prince told Today‘s Natalie Morales. “She’s grown so much and she’s been able to really step up. I don’t really see myself as her older brother. We’re equal partners when it comes down to it. B.G. is just so mature for his age. It’s a pretty strong bond.”

The three collaborated over Halloween to design mazes and a haunted house for the second annual Costume for a Cause event. “It’s something that’s bred into us, to really give back to the community,” Prince explained. “My dad always taught me to lead by example, so I hope I can set a good example that you can have fun by helping other people and you can make a change just by doing that.”

“I think he would definitely be proud of the type of work that we’re doing and giving back to the community,” added Prince, who started his own charitable foundation dedicated to helping foster children who have aged out of the system called Heal Los Angeles.

Kim Zolciak-Biermann Shares Topless Vacation Photos with Husband Kroy — and Her Daughter Reacts!

When Kim Zolciak-Biermann goes on vacation, sometimes that includes going on a vacation from clothes – or bikini tops at least.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 39, shared photos from her trip with husband Kroy on Instagram Monday, wearing just a pair of animal print bikini bottoms. “Day 1 of our getaway I would go to the end of this earth for you my love, my best friend, my strength, my heart, and my world,” Zolciak-Biermann captioned her two photos.

Though the mother of six received several comments, one specific reaction had fans and followers in hysterics. “Where is ur top?” Zolciak-Biermann’s second eldest child, 16-year-old daughter Ariana wrote in the comments section.

“@arianabiermann it’s on you can’t see it?” the Don’t Be Tardy star responded.

While Zolciak-Biermann enjoys traveling with Kroy and her family, it appears she prefers not to the same with her Bravo costars.

On the latest RHOA episode, most all the Housewives hopped on a flight to Barcelona for season 10’s big girls trip.

Zolciak-Biermann told the ladies that she wasn’t going to travel to Spain without her husband due to the mini-stroke she had in September 2015, which led to her hospitalization and, eventually, heart surgery after doctors discovered an existing genetic condition that required treatment.

“Less than two years ago, I had a stroke coming from L.A. which is a four-hour flight. Going to Barcelona, which is a 10-hour flight, does make me nervous,” she said. “I know that my husband would make sure I’m okay. He knows why signs to look for…  It makes me very uneasy.”

Adding, “I don’t know why it’s an issue to bring Kroy. He’s my husband. I don’t understand what the problem is.”

Meanwhile, Zolciak-Biermann’s topless picture comes a couple days after she shared a makeup and wig-free selfie. “I feel beautiful with no makeup and no wig and I feel beautiful with makeup and a wig,” she wrote in the photo’s caption. “I love being a woman, dressing up, and I also love running around in my La Perla pajamas bottoms (that are old as s— — I wear them every day) and my bathrobe.”

Anti-Muslim commentator shares fake video to prove immigrants are dangerous

Noted anti-Muslim commentator and activist Pamela Geller included a video in the February 11 edition of her newsletter, intended to prove that immigrants posed a dangerous threat. Unfortunately, the video appears to be a hoax.

The video, titled “Immigrants in Italy,” depicts a group of people battering an Italian police car with bats and sticks while others cheer on.

By including the video in her newsletter, Gellar, who has claimed that President Obama is radical Muslim who “wants jihad to win” and has ties to white supremacists and European right-wing extremist factions, was likely attempting to capitalize off of anti-immigrant fear in Italy just weeks before the country’s general election where immigration is anticipated to be a hot button issue.

As noted by Media Matters for America, the video is in actuality an amateur recording of the shooting of an Italian film called Mediterranea. The film focuses on two friends from Burkina Faso who “experience hostility after immigrating to Italy.” The video clearly shows the film’s camera crew and production crew can be seen walking into the scene at the end of the clip, prompting the actors to stop.

The video has been debunked repeatedly by ItalianFrench, and German language websites since 2014.

Geller is described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as “the anti-Muslim movement’s most visible and flamboyant figurehead.” She has described Obama as a “third worlder and a coward” who will “do nothing but beat up on our friends to appease his Islamic overlords,” in addition to spreading a conspiracy that he is the love child of Malcolm X.

Last week, Geller appeared on a Florida radio show and called ProPublica’s latest initiative to help document hate crimes “child’s play” when compared to state-run media.

“So if you’re a Muslim and some non-Muslim looked at you funny, just report it to any one of these groups of news organizations and it too will count as a hate crime,” Geller said. “This is nefarious. This makes Soviet Pravda and state-run media look like child’s play.”

Geller’s most recent anti-immigrant smear attempt comes just ahead of Italy’s March 4 elections, which have so far been plagued with white nationalist sentiment. As ThinkProgress previously reported, former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, the scandal-plagued Italian media tycoon who was convicted of tax fraud in 2012, has already pledged to deport 600,000 refugees from Italy, should his allies in the far-right Northern League and Brothers of Italy win a seat in the government. Berlusconi himself is barred from running for office again because of his conviction.

“Immigration has become an urgent question, because after years with a leftwing government, there are 600,000 migrants who don’t have the right to stay,” he said in a TV interview earlier in February. “We consider it to be an absolute priority to regain control over the situation.”


Kim Zolciak-Biermann Shares Makeup-Free — and Wig-Free — Selfie: "I Feel Beautiful'

Reality TV viewers may be used to seeing Kim Zolciak-Biermann all dolled up with her bold makeup and long blonde wigs, but she feels just as beautiful without them.

The 39-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta and Don’t Be Tardy star stripped it all off on Instagram Saturday, sharing a makeup and wig-free selfie.

“I feel beautiful with no makeup and no wig and I feel beautiful with makeup and a wig,” Zolciak-Bermann wrote in the photo’s caption. “I love being a woman, dressing up, and I also love running around in my La Perla pajamas bottoms (that are old as s— — I wear them everyday) and my bathrobe.”

“I think it’s really important to do what makes YOU happy!” the “Tardy for the Party” songstress continued. “I think it’s REALLY important to do YOU! Do what makes YOU happy! Love the skin you’re in!”

No matter what, Zolciak-Biermann said her husband Kroy Biermann praises her either way. “My husband makes me feel beautiful at all times!” she gushed.

She also spoke about her skincare routine, explaining, “I have ALWAYS been into skincare and my skin. I have gone to bed maybe twice in my entire life with makeup on (yes even if I’m swaying at the sink hunni, I still scrub that face).”

The mom of six knows a lot about skincare, having launched her “dream” project – a luxury skincare line called Kashmere.

Outside of her beauty routine, Zolciak-Biermann has a well-documented love of plastic surgery.

And though she’s been open about Botox injections, fillersbreast enhancement and tummy tuck procedures, and even cellulite injections, she continues to vehemently deny rumors of facial plastic surgery.

It’s frustrating but it’s a battle I’m not going to win,” she told PEOPLE in April. “People can say what they want to say.”

“I think where people get confused is that I was pregnant for three years,” Zolciak-Biermann added, explaining she’s “the exact same size now” as she was before she had kids.

“People are always like, ‘You’re so skinny now!’ ” she said. “I’m the same exact size, nothing has changed. I’ve aged, so my face has thinned out a little bit. But I have nothing to hide. And also I have nothing to prove!”

Zolciak-Biermann went on to say she documented her breast enhancement and tummy tuck procedures on her reality show to show women that “you can still feel good about yourself.”

“I want women to feel beautiful,” she revealed. “Just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean you shouldn’t feel beautiful! So I’ve been very open with that. I’ve done my lips. I’ve been open about my wigs. I’ve been wearing wigs for 15 years! I’m not here to hide.”

But what Zolciak-Biermann won’t stand for is when critics attack her 20-year-old daughter Brielle, who has spoken openly about getting lip fillers.

“I get irritated when they come for Brielle,” she said. “I think people have calmed down about the nose — Brielle’s has not had a nose job.”

Jordan Rodgers Shares His 'Low-Key' Valentine's Day Plans with Fiancée JoJo Fletcher

For Jordan Rodgers and JoJo Fletcher, Valentine’s Day is about spending quality time with one another.

“For us, Valentine’s Day is low-key. We’ve done the nice dinner, but I think for us, the best thing, usually, is just a chill night,” Rodgers, 29, tells PEOPLE.

This year, Rodgers — who met, fell in love with and got engaged to Fletcher, 27, on season 12 of The Bachelorette — is planning to have a romantic night spent with his fiancée at their home in Dallas, Texas.

“We’ll probably make dinner and watch a movie or something. Her love language is words, so if I can do something that is just thoughtful — she doesn’t need a big gift or anything,” he shares about Fletcher. “She’s great. She just wants, like any girl, to feel appreciated and hear how you feel about them. So I always do something like that.”

But ahead of the love-centric holiday, the SEC Now broadcaster has another surprise in store for Fletcher: Rodgers has teamed up with Captain Morgan and is modeling the rum brand’s new Captain’s Posepants boxer briefs— and has hilarious pictures to prove it.

“I think it’s going to be a surprise,” he says about sharing the photo shoot images with Fletcher. “Before I got here I was like, ‘I don’t really know what this is going to be,’ but then I saw it and I was like, ‘Okay, yes.’ So I texted her telling her it was awesome. She’s going to love the pictures.”

In addition to Fletcher, Rodgers will be gifting a few of his friends with the red underwear. “I’m going to get a few of them for my buddies, as well as JoJo. It’s a funny thing. So you can be romantic, and then you throw something in there that makes them laugh. That’s how I like to roll,” he shares.

“My thing on Valentine’s Day is, yeah, you want to be thoughtful, but you also want to throw a little humor in there. So these are a really fun, absurd gift for guys and girls,” he explains about the briefs, which have a “higher slit on one leg so you can put that one up.”

While Rodgers didn’t consult Fletcher for his Captain Morgan underwear modeling, he does value the former Bachelorette’s style expertise when it comes to his personal wardrobe.

“I like to think I have good style. But whenever I wear something that she really likes, it makes it so much better,” he shares.

“Like for date night, I’ll throw something on and be like, ‘What do you think?’ And if she loves it, I’m good. Sometimes she’ll be like, ‘I don’t know …’ and then I change,” he explains. “So I always like to have her approval. And she’s got great style. Funky, great style.”
