TV star wife

Jordan, 37, is married to TV host and former reality TV star Morgan Stewart.

The two got engaged on July 4, 2020, and married on December 9, 2020 after beginning a relationship earlier that year.

While it seemed like a whirlwind romance, the couple actually dated a decade before but broke up before she went on to marry her Rich Kids of Beverly Hills co-star Brendan Fitzpatrick.

“We dated 10 years ago for a year and then he broke up,” Stewart said of Jordan in 2020.

“Then, the past year we got back together. Isn’t that cute? He was persistent and I was like, ‘all right’.”

Jordan and his wife are parents to two children; daughter Row, who was born in 2021, and son Grey, who arrived a year later.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle forced to grin and bear it as Serena Williams makes brutal joke about them for daring to breathe

When it comes to the Windsor Royal family, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have always been outsiders. Since their wedding, the famous couple have made a point to stand apart from their more controversial family members. A decision that is not doing them a whole lot of good.

Harry and Meghan are acutely aware of the ugly history behind the English monarchy. Its violent past of colonialism added rumors of racism against Meghan when she officially joined the family. It has been years since the couple separated themselves from the family and have been building their roots in America. But so far, their tiniest decision and smallest step has been blown out of proportion by the British media as a calculated plan to defy the Royals or malign their reputation — a trend that has not gone unnoticed, especially by those who remain close to Harry and Meghan.

And it did become a point of discourse on July 11, 2024, at the ESPY Awards where famed athlete Serena Williams and Meghan’s close friend took the stage and poked fun at the dilemma of the couple is forced to live every day.

The controversy the Duke of Sussex riled up by not refusing to accept the renowned Pat Tillman award for the Invictus Games is well known. Harry was bashed by many, including Pat Tilman’s mother, for his Royal lineage, the many troubles he is currently embroiled in, and according to many, for not meeting the demands of the award that is given to those that make “remarkable civic contributions” and exhibit “extraordinary fortitude and spirit of service.” Along with these criticisms, Harry has also been accused of trying to hog the limelight while Prince William and Kate Middleton attempt to navigate life after her cancer diagnosis.

Whew! In short, the couple can’t do anything right as per the naysayers, something which Williams hilariously drew attention to in her speech.

“Please, Harry and Meghan, try not to breathe too much tonight. Because this is my night and I don’t want to be overshadowed by accusations you guys are taking up too much oxygen.”

On the surface, as Williams is a friend of the couple, her comments should have been in good fun. But all it did was put a spotlight on Harry’s tricky relationship with his family where he and his wife are often absent from Royal events as the Crown deems their presence “distracting.” During the joke, both Harry and Meghan smiled politely, but on the inside, they were probably wondering about the next storm Williams’ comment would bring for them. Anyway, unfortunately, they are used to this — politely accepting blame and criticism despite their charitable works and attempts to use their privilege for a good cause.

And they would be right to fear the repercussions of Williams’ little joke. After all, Meghan’s products getting promotion from friends on the very day Kate broke her oath of isolation to mark her presence at the Trooping Colors also cursed the Duchess of Sussex with the blame for trying to upstage her sister-in-law. The fact that Kate only made the announcement of her impending arrival mere hours ago — or how, allegedly, Harry and Meghan were not updated about this development in advance — did nothing to diffuse the renewed Meghan-bashing.

While the savage joke at their expense did earn Williams’ a few rounds of laughter, there is no guarantee that the quip won’t give trigger the ire of the British Royal Family once again.

Team USA Basketball Has Plenty Of Options For Their Starting Lineup

Team USA Basketball Has Plenty Of Options For Their Starting Lineup – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Team USA will enter the 2024 Summer Olympics as the heavy favorites to take home the gold medal in Men’s Basketball. The team is stacked with some of the best talent that the NBA has to offer, from budding superstars to some of the league’s older and most accomplished players.

Steve Kerr “Can’t Go Wrong” With Picking Team USA Starting Lineup

But with all of the premier talent to choose from, who will head coach Steve Kerr elect to be in the starting lineup once the tournament starts later this month?

There are a few shoo-ins based on talent and accomplishments. LeBron James will be making his fourth Olympic appearance for Team USA, and is coming off of a season in which he averaged over 25 points and 8 rebounds as the oldest player in the league at age 39.

James’ spot as a starter is solidified, but he isn’t the only one. Stephen Curry is finally making his Olympics debut after missing out for various reasons in year’s past, and will bring his shooting talents to the world stage in what could be a final stamp on his illustrious career.

Another player that appears to have a starting spot locked in is Kevin Durant, who along with James and Curry form something of a “Big 3” for Team USA.

Embiid, Booker, And Others Vying For Final Spots

The final two spots won’t be quite as simple. The centers that will be going up against the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo and other big men around the world will be Anthony Davis and Joel Embiid, both of whom will have legit arguments from being in the starting 5.

The 2-guard spot will need to be decided as well, and there are plenty of viable options. Devin Booker and Anthony Edwards appear to be the two that would lead the race for being starters, but newly-crowned NBA champion Jayson Tatum is on the roster as well. With some positional shuffling, he too could have a case for being one of the top-5. Jrue Holiday could even make a starting appearance based on matchups given his defensive prowess.

Bam Adebayo, Tyrese Haliburton, and Derrick White round out the roster for Team USA.
