Blake Lively Launches Lifestyle Website Preserve!

Published

Move over Gwyneth, Blake is taking the reigns!

Blake Lively’s highly anticipated lifestyle site, Preserve, has finally launched!

BLAKE-LIVELY-EDITOR

The Gossip Girl alum admitted that launching her personal site has left her feeling “intimidated”. Her intimidation might stem from the criticism she received for wanting to start her own lifestyle site, which many people are comparing to Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow’s site.  Although I personally think she’s going to give Goop a run for its money. 

So what can we expect from Preserve? Let’s ask the editor herself!

“Sitting down to write this editor’s letter has been the hardest thing I’ve done yet on my Preserve journey. I’m more intimidated than I should probably admit. I’m no editor, no artisan, no expert. And certainly no arbiter of what you should buy, wear, or eat,” she wrote in her humble first “Letter from the Editor”.

For Lively, the site is “part magazine, part e-commerce hub, [and] part philanthropic endeavor”. The idea behind it is that everyone has a story to tell, but she’s not taking all the credit. Preserve is as much everyone’s story that she’s ever had the pleasure of working with, as much as it is hers.  It’s a mixture of the “most dedicated, soulful, wise, patient people I’ve ever had the honor of working alongside,” explained the 26-year-old blonde. 

“Here at Preserve, there are people, stories, essays, videos, and goods that hopefully inspire your home, your style, and your tongue. There’s expensive stuff. Inexpensive stuff. And everything in between. But their value, that’s up to you. We romanticize it, calling it treasure. What we’re simply saying is that we see their worth on every level,” Ryan Reynolds’ wife wrote. 

In other words, if you ever need inspiration, if you ever need a helpful decorating/style tip, this is the site to check out. I mean, she doesn’t need many credentials. She’s basically the queen of the red carpet for every high fashion event. So if she wants to give me some decor, fashion, food, love, etc. advice, I’m totally in. I’m just not sure if I’m able to afford it.

That’s really the only problem with these e-commerce sites that are being sold to us by stars. Sure, Blake Lively handpicked these items and while their fantastic, in good taste, and look great on pinterest and instagram, do I honestly need to spend $100 on something I could probably find for much cheaper at like TJMaxx? (And side note, yes I do go to TJMaxx?). Not sure. But I won’t knock it. You can buy anything from candles, to love letters from New Orleans, to “organic” jewelry, to hot fudge and ketchup. And while I think $8 is a little much for ketchup, to each his own. Maybe it is really the best ketchup you’ve ever had? I probably won’t ever know. 

The site isn’t made for poor, young college students in loans, nor is it made for people who don’t have a summer home to store all these fancy, irrelevant things. It’s for people who have a little more excess cash to waste and want to seem like they have good and “artisan” taste. So let it be. Haven’t you ever bought something solely because someone like Lauren Conrad was marketing it and you wanted to be just like her? It’s the same thing, except this is a look into Blake Lively’s brain and imagination. So if you’re  a fan, this is your heaven. 

You can check out the site at www.preserve.us. Let’s preserve our story! 

What did you think? Are you a Blake Lively fan? Do you like her new lifestyle site?

‘The Bachelorette’ Keeps Leading Lady a Secret in New Promo – Does It Confirm Tayshia Adams Is Replacing Clare Crawley?

Published

Does 'The Bachelorette' Promo Confirm Tayisha Adams is Replacing Clare Crawley?

The Bachelorette’s new promo seems to confirm the rumors that the upcoming season won’t be focused fully on Clare Crawley. 

Earlier today, rumors began swirling that for the first time in the long-running franchise’s history, there would be two bachelorette’s on season 18. 

Sources associated to the show said that Crawley fell in-love midseason and quit the show leaving producers to fill her spot with Bachelor in Paradise alum, Tayshia Adams. 

Since production, which was already delayed due to COVID was already underway, the reports stated that the producers let Crawley’s short journey to “happily ever after” play out before tapping in Adams to find love with the 40-some suitors cast for the season. 

So much drama and the season hasn’t even started yet! 

ABC has kept pretty mum on the whole situation before swiftly releasing a pretty mysterious promo on social media. 

Neither Crawley nor Adams is featured in the franchise promo. 

Instead, the five-second promo features the silhouette of a woman being filmed. And while it looks like Crawley’s outline, it seems to have convinced Bachelor Nation to that it is confirmation that those rumors of a bachelorette-swap are true! 

That isn’t the only change coming this fall as the series is moving to a new night. “Bachelor Mondays” will now become “Bachelor Tuesdays,” which feels wrong, but it’s 2020 and that’s just the way it is. It’s unclear what prompted the change, but we’re guessing the COVID pandemic forced the network to shuffle things around to accommodate other productions. 

If we’ve learned anything from this season already it’s that flexibility and “going with the flow” are crucial. 

Do you think the quick ABC promo is confirmation that Crawley is stepping down and Adams is stepping up?

Sound-off in the comments below!

The CW Superheroes Wear Face Masks in Promotional Posters: ‘Real Heroes Wear Masks’

The CW Unveils Promotional Posters for Superhero Shows Wearing Face Masks

Cape? Check! Face mask…. check!

The superheroes of The CW are suiting up to battle their biggest enemy yet — COVID-19. 

The CW released posters for its 2021 superhero shows and Black Lightning, The Flash, Black Canary and even BeeBo from Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Superman from the upcoming Superman & Lois, and Stargirl are all donning their face masks. 

It’s not only a sign of the times, but it’s a gentle reminder that it’s important to do your part and wear a mask in public to curb the spread of the virus. 

I guess the idea is if a superhero can fight off the bad guys in one, you can wear it when you go to the store. Each photo features the tagline: “real heroes wear masks.”

Both Supergirl and The Flash wrapped up their seasons ahead of scheduled due to the pandemic that shut down all TV and film productions in mid-March. 

Black LightningStargirl and Legends of Tomorrow were all successfully able to wrap up their seasons. 

Meanwhile, the Superman & Lois series, which piggybacks off of the couple’s appearance in Supergirl and the Arroweverse crossover, scored a straight-to-series order but was unable to film a pilot. 

Of course, the pandemic didn’t just affect past seasons, it also affects upcoming seasons as only a limited number of show’s have been able to resume production with a number of safety protocols in place. 

The production delays forced The CW to delay most of its scripted dramas that usually premiere in the fall to a 2021 release date as part of the spring lineup. This includes Batwoman (with its new lead Javicia Leslie), Charmed, All American, Black Lightning, The Flash, Riverdale, Nancy Drew, and Legacies. New show Walker is also being held till midseason as the network hopes the shows can get back on track. 

The network is filling the schedule with completed series’ and streaming shows like Swamp Thing and Tell Me a Story, acquired from DC Universe and CBS All Access, respectively, to fill in the gaps. International shows Dead Pixels and Coroner will also fill out the schedule. 

The only staple series airing new episodes will be the final season of Supernatural, which wrapped up production prior to COVID-19.

Tayshia Adams Reportedly Replacing Clare Crawley on Upcoming Season 18 of ‘The Bachelorette’ – What Went Down?

Tayshia Adams Replacing Clare Crawley as Season 20 Bachelorette

This is the most dramatic season of The Bachelorette, and it hasn’t even started yet!

In addition to production delays brought upon by the coronavirus pandemic, sources say that Clare Crawley is stepping down as the upcoming Bachelorette. 

According to E! News, Bachelor in Paradise alum Tayshia Adams will step into the light as the upcoming Bachelorette. 

“The producers have told her that the season will still lead with Clare and her short-lived journey, and will show Clare falling in love with one of her suitors,” sources said. “Clare will then conclude her journey and announce that Tayshia is the lead.”

Deadline reports Clare fell in love with Dale Moss early on and left the show, but the producers have decided to allow her to journey to pan out before handing over the reigns to Adams. 

Season 18 began production in early August, a few months delayed because of the pandemic. Safety measures have been put in place to keep the crew and cast safe.

With many travel restrictions still in place, the upcoming season will move away from the Bachelor mansion. Instead, it’ll be shot at a resort in Palm Springs, California, where the cast and crew will be staying for the whole season run, per ET

Rumors began swirling earlier this week after Clare, the oldest Bachelorette in history at 39, reportedly liked and unliked a tweet about Tayshia taking her spot. 

‘The Bachelorette’s’ Mike Johnson Reveals If He’d Ever Become ‘The Bachelor’

During production of the series, none of the contestants are allowed to have access to their phones, which led Bachelor Nation to believe that Crawley was no longer part of the series. 

E! notes that ABC declined to comment. 

Deadline also reports that since this is such a new predicament, the suitors that Clare eliminated will be allowed to return for a shot at love with Adams.

In total, there are 42 willing and available suitors looking for a chance at true love; 25 of them are new, 17 carried over from the first round prior to COVID delays. 

If the reports are true, Adams will become the second-ever Black lead on the franchise next to season 13’s Rachel Lindsay. The Bachelor, which was previously criticized for its lack of diversity, is also introducing the first ever Black Bachelor lead with Matt James. 

Adams first appeared in the franchise on Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor. 

What do you think about two Bachelorette’s? It’s a first in the franchise’s long-history, but then again, 2020 is an unconventional year!
