The FBI briefed the country on April 18, releasing brand new photographs and video of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings. Keep reading for more details.
The FBI revealed on April 18 that they currently have two suspects who appear to be associated with the horrible bombings in the Boston Marathon on April 15. The FBI released brand new photographs and video footage of the two suspects, so that “the public should view to assist” them.
Boston Bombings: FBI Releases Photos Of Two Suspects
“This is our focus now,” FBI Special Agent Richard DesLauriers stated, adding that all previous images are inconsequential.
The two men in question were spotted by security cameras carrying bags, walking together in the direction of the finish line near the explosion sites. The first suspect is a man wearing a black hat, while the second is a man wearing a black hat. As of now, these are the only two men of interest to the FBI.
Richard stated that the they believe the two men are associated with each other, and that they should be considered armed and extremely dangerous. He also stated that only suspect number two can be seen planting a device near the explosion site.
After planting the device, the suspect then proceeded west on Boylston St. As of now that is all the authorities know about the suspects’ movements after the bombings.
Though the idea of two dangerous and armed suspects at large is frightening, Richard DesLauriers insists that there is no imminent danger to the public.
Kristen– you’ve done a great job of surviving a major relationship crisis and re-igniting your romance with Rob. But that doesn’t mean you should in any way pullback from your career. You’re just 23 and it’s the time of your life, when you should be able to have it ALL!
Kristen Stewart, it’s been impressive how you’ve dedicated yourself to rebuilding the love and trust in your relationship with Robert Pattinson. Even when it seemed like Rob was questioning his future with you during a trial separation, while he filmed, The Rover for 64 days, you stayed strong and loyal. Your commitment to Rob paid off and since he returned to Los Angeles on March 19 — you two have been inseparable. Sources tell us that Rob has showered you with affection and we hear that you are more in love than ever. That’s fantastic Kristen, and we understand the urge to overcompensate after your mistaken affair, but that doesn’t mean that you should make your career secondary to your relationship now. You can have a healthy, strong relationship AND a fulfilling career as an actress!
Kristen Stewart: Should She Put Robert Pattinson Ahead Of Her Career?
Kristen — we learned on April 18 that you had decided to drop out of Focus, the romantic con-artist movie that would have been your first role since starring in Breaking Dawn – Part 2 and On The Road. You thought working alongside 44-year-old Will Smith would be an issue, according to HollywoodLife.com’ssister site, Variety, and I agree — it definitely would have been strange playing a role that had you getting romantic with someone who’s 21 years older than yourself. But a source told us that you actually turned down the role mainly because you “want to focus on [your] relationship with Rob.”
“Filming Focus would have conflicted with spending time with Rob and she doesn’t want to take any chances. She meant it when she said Rob was her number one priority,” the source explained.
Kristen — I think it’s great that you’ve taken time to think about your relationship. Between your cheating mistake in July 2012 and your trial separation with Rob while he was in Australia, you’ve had ample opportunity to step back and take a hard look at your life and your relationship. But I don’t think putting Rob ahead of your own development as an actress is the right decision for you — and even for your relationship.
Kristen Stewart: You Don’t Have To Put Robert Pattinson First
You can’t let your relationship with Rob, as much as you love him, prevent you from fulfilling your aspirations as an actress. You aren’t married to Rob, you don’t have any children together, and you’re 23 years old .Now is the time to challenge yourself as a performer. And Rob should actually support that – in fact, I bet that he does support that.
It was your confidence and independence that attracted Rob to you in the first place, when he first met you and began working with you ! He loved how you did your own thing and weren’t one of those young women who made your romances the center of your life, to the exclusion of all else. And remember- it wasn’t your independent streak or your career commitment that almost split you and Rob up. Plain and simple, it was your cheating with director Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders and the trust issues that followed, that almost ended your relationship with Rob.
That means that as long as you and Rob have worked out those trust issues, you should feel comfortable taking on any acting roles that you want even if it means separating you fromRob for a short time. After all, isn’t that what trust is all about?
Kristen Stewart: You May Regret This Decision
Kristen — you need to follow your personal aspirations as well as your heart, or else you could end up regretting it forever. First of all, overcompensating like this and vowing to put Rob first, above all else, could actually backfire by turning Rob off. Like I said, he loves you for the independent girl you are. If he starts to feel like you’re too dependent or you’re suffocating him, you two could end up fighting and that will tear you apart (even though that’s what you were trying to avoid in the first place).
Secondly, as much as we all hope you and Rob live happily ever after, the fact is that you’re both very young and the relationship could very well run its course and naturally end anyway. Can you imagine how you’ll feel if you and Rob split and there are all of these great movie roles that you turned down just for Rob? You’ll resent him forever and you’ll be angry at yourself.
Kristen Stewart: You Don’t Have To Choose Between Love & A Career
The fact is Kristen, you can have a healthy romantic relationship and a good career — you don’t have to put pressure on yourself to choose one over the other.
So Focus wasn’t the right fit for you, and spending time with Rob at Coachella was more important than going to the MTV Movie Awards, I get that. But the next time a role comes up, consider what it would do for your acting career — don’t worry about whether it will affect your relationship with Rob.
You and Rob are mature, down to earth young people, and most importantly hopelessly in love with each other. That makes both of you especially equipped to have great careers and a successful romantic relationship. So Kristen, don’t give up building your acting acting career, just to protect your love with Rob!
Authorities are seeking the help of the public in identifying potential suspects in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15.
New photos from the Boston Marathon were first revealed on April 18, showing potential suspects appearing and acting suspiciously before the explosions on April 15. Authorities have now released a set of photos, hoping that the public may help in identifying the potential perpetrators.
Bombing Suspect Photos Released
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the FBI would like to speak to “individuals” about the blast case, The Boston Globe reported. She was also quick to note that these individuals are not necessarily suspects.
She testified before a Congressional committee on April 18, saying that some of the video collected from near the Boston Marathon finish line had raised questions.
“But we need the public’s help in locating these individuals. The investigation is proceeding apace. This is not an NCIS episode. Sometimes you have to take time to properly put the chain together to identify the perpetrators, but everybody's committed to seeing that that gets done in the right way," she told Representative Michael McCaul at the Homeland Security Committee.
Boston Marathon Bombings
There were two massive explosions at 2:50 pm on April 15, near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. About 183 people were injured and three were killed, including an 8-year-old boy.
Kristen dropped out of ‘Focus’ to spend more time with Rob, and now a source tells HollywoodLife.com she’s dying to work with him again!
As soon as Will Smith jumped on board to replace Ben Affleck in the sexy thriller Focus, opposite Kristen Stewart, the Twilight beauty decided to jump ship. What could have been Kristen’s reasoning? It turns out it was all because of a tall, dark and handsome Brit named Robert Pattinson! “Kristen did not leave because of the age difference between her and Will Smith,” a friend of K-Stew’s tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
“She didn’t have any problem at all with Ben Affleck’s age, and he’s 40 years old,” the friend continues. “Initially, Kristen was really excited about doing the project, but now she just wants to keep her options open and wants to focus on her relationship with Rob.”
“Filming Focus would have conflicted with spending time with Rob, and she doesn’t want to take any chances,” the friend adds. “She meant it when she said Rob was her number one priority. Her dream job, right now, would be to work on another film with Rob. Then they could be together all the time.”
What Type Of Film Should Kristen & Rob Film Together?
HollywoodLifers, what kind of film would you like to see Kristen and Rob star in together next? A romantic comedy, a sexy thriller or a quirky indie? And do you think starring in another film together would be positive or negative for Kristen and Rob’s careers?
Amanda couldn’t resist posting a ton of new pics of herself on April 17 to her Twitter page and it appears she’s photoshopped herself as different animals … browse through our gallery!
Amanda Bynes never ceases to shock us. The 27-year-old took to Twitter to post several pictures of herself, one as a camel, another as a cat.
Amanda Bynes Posts Animal Photos Of Herself On Twitter
Amanda’s behavior keeps getting more shocking. The former popstar posted a video of herself getting ready on April 15 and now on April 17, she posted a bunch of pics of herself as various animals. Then she also posted “selfies” which show off her eye makeup, cheek piercings and hair extensions.
This has fans concerned because this is just the latest in a series of bizarre tweets.
Psychiatrist Believes Amanda Is ‘Psychotic’
HollywoodLife.com spoke to Dr. Carole Lieberman, who does not know Amanda, who tells us that the video of Amanda on April 15 is disturbing. We told you that the video shows Amanda sucking on a candy, while blasting music in her bathroom.
“This video is very suggestive of someone who is psychotic,” Dr. Lieberman M.D., psychiatrist and author of Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them & How Good Girls Can Learn Their Secrets says. “Amanda seems to be making faces at, and talking to, some unseen person. And, although it’s possible that there is actually a person off-camera, it seems more likely that she is having an auditory or visual hallucination.”
We also told you that Amanda was reportedly kicked out of the W Hotel in NYC for walking around naked in the hallways. She has also been posting pics of herself nonstop on Twitter, admitted to an eating disorder, and says she doesn’t speak to her parents.
The clean-shaven killer will claim his final victims this summer. Are you ready to say goodbye?
Confirming reports that surfaced earlier this year, Showtime announced April 18 that the upcoming eighth season of Dexterwill be its last. Season eight will pick up six months after the events of last season’s shocking finale, and Dexter (Michael C. Hall) will still be “managing life as a dead, brother, and a serial killer.” And just when she thought she was in the clear, Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) is confronted by a “mysterious woman” with knowledge about her brother’s past.
Matthew C. Blank, Chairman and CEO of Showtime Networks Inc., reflected on the show’s incredible success in a statement:
When it debuted in 2006, DEXTER redefined the genre, by taking the anti-hero to new heights and pushing the boundaries of the television landscape. DEXTER paved the way for the next generation of award-winning hit SHOWTIME series, and its cultural impact will be felt for years to come.
David Nevins, President of Entertainment at Showtime Networks Inc., also gave credit where credit is due:
DEXTER is a landmark franchise for our network, and we cannot wait to unveil the conclusion of this series, as we know it, to the millions of passionate fans who have supported the show season after season. We’d like to thank Michael, Jennifer, and DEXTER ‘s indomitable cast, executive producers, writers and crew for eight incredible seasons.
The network also released a preview of what’s to come in season eight, which is officially being dubbed “The Final Season.”

Celeb stylist Ted Gibson spills the how-to on Elizabeth’s effortless hair at the City Harvest Gala in New York City on April 16. The chic bun is easy to re-create and totally versatile. Get the look below!
Elizabeth Olsen looked stunning at CityHarvest’s 19th Annual An Evening Of Practical Magic. The event was held at New York’s Cipriani on April 16. Elizabeth’s green eyes were spellbinding and her hair was cool and casual and so easy to rock yourself! The stylist who created the look, Ted Gibson, breaks it down for you below!
Elizabeth Olsen’s City Harvest Hair — Get Her Exact Look
“The idea of this particular textured bun is effortless chic,” Ted tells HollywoodLife.com.
“There was a lot of embellishment on the collar [of her dress] so the hair needed to be up and not down. I started off with Build It Blowdrying Agent and Tame It Shine Lotion. I blew her hair dry with my fingers in a twisting motion, so that I could get the hair to have a roughed-up surface as opposed to smooth.”
“After the blow-dry, I used a little more Tame It into the hair then pulled everything into a low ponytail. After the ponytail, I used small elastics about 3 inches apart down the pony. Securing small areas on the pony, I twisted the knot to look almost Japanese in effect. I sprayed Beautiful Hold Hairspray over the entire head then roughed up the top of her head with my fingers. It turned out super pretty and she loved it!”
We love it too! Would you wear a messy bun like Elizabeth, HollywoodLifers?
A father and his two young daughters watched the fire at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas from their truck far away when the entire plant exploded — causing one of the girls to temporarily lose hearing, and all to fear for their lives. Watch the chilling video.
Derrick Hurtt was filming the massive fire at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas with his young daughters Khloey, 12, and Kinley on the night of April 17 on his cell phone from their truck parked far away. Suddenly, the plant exploded — a blast that killed 15 and injured more than 100 — and the terrified family scrambled to find safety.
Texas Plant Explosion: Khloey Screams ‘Dad, I Can’t Hear’
Derrick and his daughters were watching the fire when the plant exploded — and the blast was so loud and massive, it rocked their truck and made his daughter Khloey temporarily lose her hearing. The family tried to scramble to safety while their cries and screams for help are still caught on camera.
Khloey is heard screaming in the video:
Dad, I can’t hear… Get out of here. Please get out of here. Daddy, please get out of here.
Frightened by the explosion, the dad hurries to drive their truck away from the site with his daughters in the vehicle.
Derrick Hurtt Says He & Daughters Are OK
Luckily, the family left the scene unharmed — a miracle, considering the blast killed at least 15 people.
He told Matt Lauer on Today on April 18 that the scene was horrific, and there were others like him watching the fire before the explosion. He said on Today:
There was probably double-digit people standing in front of me videoing that were closer than I was, and after the blast, they were nowhere to be seen.
The father also said his daughter Khloey’s ears are still sore, but her hearing is restored.
What do YOU think of the explosion, HollyMoms? Are you shocked by the video?
The Biebs is being punished for being too sexy. Who knew that was a crime?!
We told you before that Justin Biebercancelled his show in Muscat, Oman. Now we know why! Oman is a strict Islamic nation, and was uncomfortable allowing the Biebs to perform because he is just too good-looking. I guess we can’t argue with that.
Justin Bieber Forced To Cancel Show In Oman
Justin’s show was stopped by hardline Muslim leaders who feared that the “moral health” of their women would be compromised due to Justin’s good looks.
After the cancellation, an aggressive anti-Bieber campaign formed on various websites, forums, and blogs. A source in Oman said, “Many people here were horrified by what they had heard about Bieber.”
The source continued, “People didn't want him coming to Oman. He was called a reprobate and words were used like debauchery and Haraam, which in Islam means a sinful act that displeases God.” Justin — who must be acquainted to bad press by now — added a second show in Dubai to make up for his canceled concert.
Justin Needs To Keep His Shirt On
The Biebs can’t be held accountable for being too sexy, but he can do something about his wacky behavior. His apparent need to be shirtless could have something to do with the Islamic nation’s concerns. The source explained, “In Islamic countries you can't run around with your shirt off.” Hopefully Justin has learned a valuable lesson here!
What do YOU think, Hollywoodlifers? Should Justin try to play down his hotness so he can play more concerts?
The FBI will be holding a press conference on April 18 at 5pm ET. Hopefully they’ll release more details on the possible suspects involved in killing three people and injuring at least 183 during the Boston Marathon.
Three days after a massive explosion at the Boston Marathon on April 15, the FBI have called another press conference to discuss the latest findings. Now we hope to find out if there is a suspect(s) involved in the horrific bombings.
It’s no secret that this mommy-to-be has had a hard time figuring out a maternity style that flatters her growing belly. Between dressing up and switching to a more laid back style, there doesn’t seem to be a happy medium for Kim Kardashian. Which of these looks do YOU like better?
Kim Kardashian has certainly made a name for herself as a fashionista, but some of her questionable maternity looks have caused her reputation to falter. The 32-year-old recently sported two very different looks, and we can’t quite decide if she looks better in more formal attire or if she should stick to a more casual look for now.
On April 17, Kim K. made her way into a studio in Hollywood, wearing a super tight green frock — a typical look of the sexy reality star. In a green jewel-toned frock, Kim totally accentuated her growing belly, as well as the rest of her growing assets! The conservative neckline definitely didn’t help to tone down her curves. The celeb finished off the form-fitting ensemble with a pair of matching suede open-toed booties, that were cute, but definitely not an ideal choice for her advanced state. For someone that usually sticks to neutral tones, it’s an odd time to be going for a more vibrant look. It’s certainly not her worst outfit, and she does look pretty, but we just think she could have done a little better!
The reality star attended her older sister, Kourtney’s 34th birthday party at a bowling alley later that evening. Rightfully so, she dressed her 6-month baby bump in a super casual look. A loose-fitting pair of boyfriend jeans matched with a tight black tee were definitely an appropriate maternity look for the Kardashian sister. Covered by a black blazer and finished off with black flats, she was clearly going for the comfort factor. We love that she finally dressed down for a night out with her family!
HollywoodLifers, do YOU think Kim’s pregnant silhouette looks better when she’s dressed up in typical Kardashian manner or dressed down in a more comfortable look? Comment and VOTE to tell us what you think!
After so much back and forth over whether Miley and Liam are postponing their wedding, a new reliable source has stated that the young couple IS putting the ceremony on hold. Keep reading for more details!
Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth Pushing Back Their Wedding Date
Miley and Liam had been planning on tying the knot this summer, but have now decided to dial it back, says the source. “They want to figure out their life together before they get married,” the source told People.
The couple has been going through a difficult time as of late. It all started in late February when Liam was spotted partying with sexy actress January Jones at an Oscars pre-party. That was followed by both Liam and Miley being photographed without their engagement rings and the couple spending a considerable amount of time apart when Liam traveled to Australia and Manila without his fiancee.
Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth: Not ‘In A Rush To Get Married’
But for those who think that this postponement is a bad sign for the couple, the source insists that there’s nothing to worry about: “They’re still engaged and living together. They just realized that there is no rush with the wedding and that it’s better that they wait a bit.”
It was merely an instance of Liam and Miley wanting to be sure of themselves before having a big wedding ceremony, a second source told People:“they were never in a rush to get married,” the source says.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think this is the beginning of the end for Liam and Miley? Let us know!
While holding up her sleek black clutch, the newly engaged star coyly showed off her most elegant prized possession. Can you blame her for flirting with the lavish gift from her fiancé?
The stunning Alexis Bledel, 31, proudly flaunted her newest gem April 17 during the carpet premiere for Remember Sunday, her newest television movie. Don’t you love her neutral manicure against her glittering shiner?
Alexis Bledel’s Over-The-Top Engagement Ring
The former Gilmore Girls star recently became engaged to Mad Men’sVincent Kartheise just a short time after they began dating. The vintage-inspired ring features a gigantic round-cut diamond and is embellished on a flawless platinum band. Alexis happily confirmed that her beau was the genius behind the extravagant ring, saying, ‘Vincent picked it out!” (Any bride to be would love a man with impeccable taste.)
Alexis and Vincent became a couple in October and attended the 2013 Golden Globes together in January. While there is no question that her fiancé will be facing a busy schedule, playing advertising executive Pete Campbell on his hit show show Mad Men, Alexis confirmed he’ll be highly involved with planning their upcoming nuptials.
“We’re doing it together,” she gushed.
While wedding plans are a priority the two are also finding a balance with their super-busy schedules.
“The most important thing, for us, is to make sure that we see each other in the flesh at least once every 10 days,” Vincent said.
Either way, we are delighted for the couple and loving Alexis’ lavish new accessory!
HollywoodLifers, are you loving Vincent’s taste in fine jewelry too?
Salah Barhoun was forced to deny that he was connected with the Boston bombing after photos were released of him carrying a bag near the finish line of the famous marathon on April 15. The 17-year-old used his Facebook account to declare his innocence!
The picture of the 17-year-old Moroccan high school student, Salah Barhoun, was revealed on April 18, three days after the April 15 Boston explosions that killed three and injured at least 183. It was reported that the man in blue was being sought by the FBI. Since then, he has used his Facebook account to deny any wrongdoing.
Salah Barhoun: Suspect No More?
The brother of the track athlete told ABC News that Salah went to the police on April 17 to clear his name. Their mother was “sick and upset” that Salah had been connected to the horrifying attack.
“It made her think he had done something wrong,” Salah’s brother said. “My brother is not the bomber.”
Salah told ABC News, “It’s the worst feeling that I can possibly feel… I’m only 17.”
Salah reportedly wanted to run in the marathon, but when he couldn’t for unknown reasons, he went to watch the race instead.
After realizing his photo was making the rounds in the media, Salah used Facebook to try and clear his name.
“Going to the court right now!! S*** is real. But u will see guys I’m did not do anything.” Hours later, he wrote, “back home! everything is fake but god is with me.”
FBI Will Release Photos Of Individuals They Want To Question
