Who Is Yosef Aborady On ‘The Bachelorette’? He’s Already Making Waves

Published

on

Ah, drama. A Bachelorette season wouldn’t be the same without it. While most seasons typically get super juicy toward the end, the first trailer for the upcoming season sure makes it seem like things are going to get tense quicker than ever. In a trailer for the season released Sept. 14, it appears Clare Crawley stands up to Yosef Aborady, who is a Bachelorette contestant who seems to stir up some sort of problem right off the bat.

Clare reportedly only have filmed The Bachelorette for about 12 days before apparently leaving to be with contestant Dale Moss and reportedly handing the lead spot to Tayshia Adams to finish out the season, but that’s not to say her short time on the show isn’t going to be action-packed. That action seems to be heavily associated with contestant Yosef, a 30-year-old from Mobile, Alabama.

In the recently released Season 16 trailer — which dropped during ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Season 29 premiere, then via Instagram — Clare is seen addressing the chaos around her. “Drama this soon is a little bit crazy,” she says to camera, before the video cuts to teaser clips of the season. After a few pleasant clips of contestant entrances and Clare telling a mystery man (likely Dale) she’s falling in love with him, Aborady appears on screen. “I’m not done yet,” he says, to which Clare responds intensely: “You are done.” She then walks off in away from the situation dramatically.

As is typical for Bachelorette teasers, the drama isn’t explained fully, so fans don’t have an exact understanding of what Yosey did to elicit that response from Clare, but it sure looks like he’s the early “villain” of the season.

Aborady being a villain might not be a surprise for fans who have been following Clare’s contestants for some time. Earlier this year, people noticed Aborady made a website right before going on The Bachelorette, which some fans took to indicate he might not be on the show for the “right reasons.” The website is private now, but a Bachelor fan forum snagged a pic of the site before that happened.

As of now, there’s still not many details surrounding the situation, but it seems fans definitely have some ~dramz~ to look forward to seeing on screens when the two-hour Season 16 premiere of The Bachelorette airs on Oct. 13 at 8 p.m. ET.

“We’re ready for this year to be over,” explained the actress, speaking to Emmys host Jimmy Kimmel.

When Kimmel asked if it’s possible to simply end the year in September, Witherspoon replied, “Of course. We’re Emmy-nominated television producers.”

“Little Fires Everywhere” was nominated for Outstanding Limited Series at the award show.

Witherspoon and Washington even did a countdown, minus the traditional New Year’s Eve kiss due to the pandemic.

“I wish I could kiss you guys, too,” said Kimmel, to which Washington quipped, “No, we don’t want that. Thank you!”

Kate McKinnon Pays Tribute to ‘Real-Life Superhero’ Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Published

By

Kate McKinnon, who played U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Saturday Night Live, paid tribute to her in a tribute obtained by the TODAY show.

Wrote McKinnon: “For so many of us, Justice Ginsburg was a real-life superhero: a beacon of hope, a warrior for justice, a robed crusader who saved the day time and again. Playing her on ‘SNL’ was a profound joy because I could always feel the overwhelming love and gratitude that the audience had for her. It was one of the great honors of my life to meet Justice Ginsburg, to shake her hand, and to thank her for her lifetime of service to this country.”

McKinnon met the Justice at a performance of Broadway’s Fiddler on the Roof in August 2019.

In her SNL performances, McKinnon made light of Ginsburg’s longevity, historic accomplishments, and fighting spirit, showing off a calendar from 1982 that read “Turn 100,” “break glass ceiling,” and “do laps in a bird bath” and one from this year that read “Don’t Die.”

“I’ve been alive for so long, I’m restarting my lifecycle, like a cicada,” McKinnon’s Ginsburg whispered. “I’m going through puberty again. I’ve got all sorts of feelings about Riverdale. That Cole Sprouse, he’s looking like a snack to me.”

Emmys 2020: Zendaya Sets an Ultraglamorous High Bar in Christopher John Rogers

Published

on

By

Hours before the official start of tonight’s mostly-from-home Emmy Awards, the state of the pandemic-era red carpet was a question mark hanging in the air. Leave it to Zendaya, a nominee for lead actress in a drama, to set an early, decadently high bar. “If Emmy was a real girl…” Zendaya’s longtime stylist, Law Roach, playfully wrote on Instagram Sunday afternoon, alongside a behind-the-scenes video of the Euphoria star twirling in a Christopher John Rogers look. Watching her light-footed spin in towering Christian Louboutin heels was enough to make a weary viewer rub their eyes in disbelief, as if a collective six months in sweatpants were all a dream.

Zendaya seems to fully grasp what it means to dress triumphantly at this precarious moment—and she already knows well how an awards show can have a years-long reverb. When she wore her hair in locs to the 2015 Oscars—drawing a famously off-color comment from a red-carpet commentator—she responded with preternatural poise. “Sometimes situations are bigger than yourself,” Zendaya, recalling that moment, told Vanity Fair last year, when she nabbed a Lancôme partnership in the lead up to Euphoria’s debut season. “It was about an entire community of people that I stand for.” 

Choosing a dress from Christopher John Rogers’s fall 2020 collection—a celebrated designer whose supporters include Michelle Obama and Rihanna—also communicates solidarity. In a long interview for Vanity Fair’s September issue, conducted by Marjon Carlos, Rogers recalled how, early on, the stylists and artists who “pulled my stuff and actually used it were Black women. Black women understood why I didn’t shy away from color and from showing off the body in some garments, but in other garments completely obscured it in a way where the clothes still read as femme without having to be overly body conscious.” That duality runs through Zendaya’s look. A bare swath of décolletage leads to a tightly cinched waist, offset by an exaggerated skirt that reads like a power move—shoulder pads for the hips. It’s also a duality that Rue, Zendaya’s character in Euphoria, understands as well, as she floats moodily through high school parties in form-swallowing hoodies and glitter eye makeup. (Those beauty looks, overseen by Doniella Davy, earned the show an Emmy last night.) 

Such lustrous moves—whether Rogers’s violet moiré alongside Bulgari jewels, or Euphoria’s sparkly makeup—are hardly out of touch with a downbeat year. In fact, who couldn’t use a shiny distraction, if only for a moment? Rogers is unabashed in his love for “fabrics that play with light—anything iridescent or metallic or shiny [or] sequined,” shrugging off the idea that they communicate wealth. Instead, he sees a spirit of optimism, of forward motion. As Rogers told Vanity Fair, “It reminds me of why I got into this in the first place, which is to make something to long for, something to really want, and then when you get it, you can’t let go.”
