Céline Dion Reminds Son René-Charles of His Late ‘Father’s Guidance’ in Touching Birthday Tribute



Céline Dion is celebrating her son René-Charles Angélil on his 19th birthday.

On Saturday, the music icon shared a sweet tribute on Instagram, praising her son for his accomplishments and for being a “true gentleman.”

Dion shared two photos of René-Charles, including an adorable throwback of her son as a baby, and another more recent photo of the two smiling together.

In the caption, the mom of three, 51, expressed her sentiments in both French and English, and raved about her eldest son.

“I’m so proud of the way you’re conducting yourself in life,” she said before channeling her late husband René Angélil, whose fourth anniversary of death was a week ago.

“I want you to know that your father’s guidance continues to support and protect you… as I do. Keep being the best of yourself… strong, passionate, and wise, as you pursue all of your dreams in life – the sky’s the limit!” Dion added.

The “My Heart Will Go On” singer concluded the post, writing, “And above all, have a good time!…. Your happiness, is my happiness. I love you so much, my dear son!  Mom xx…”

Dion and her late husband René Angélil were married for 22 years before he succumbed to his battle with throat cancer at the age of 74 in January 2016.

The pair shared three sons with Angélil: René-Charles and twins Eddy and Nelson, 9.

Over a week prior to her son’s birthday, Dion shared a moving tribute to her late husband on Jan. 15.

She shared a sweet photo of Angélil and opened up about how much she misses her beloved.

“There is not a day that goes by without me thinking about your beautiful smile,” Dion wrote in both French and English in the caption of the picture of Angélil smiling with a sleeping puppy in his arms.

“We miss you, thank you for watching over us my love. I love you,” she added, signing off the post, “Céline xx…”

Her birthday post to her son was shared just days after her mother passed away after months of declining health. Thérèse reportedly died on Thursday at age 92.

Last Friday, Dion confirmed the news on Instagram, telling fans that her tour will continue and that the evening’s concert in Miami, Florida, will go on — dedicated in her mother’s memory.

OMG Lori Loughlin SO Should Have Pleaded Guilty!!!



Well, if you were on the fence about whether Aunt Becky should have just come clean and told Danny Tanner federal prosecutors everything, the outcome of this case should make up your mind for good.

Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of bribing USC officials with $500,000 to get their daughters Olivia Jade and Bella admitted to the university as athletes on the crew team — despite the fact neither actually had any intention of joining the team, or even rowed crew at all.

While the Full House star is the most famous bust among the dozens arrested in Operation Varsity Blues, her case is far from unique. In fact, another quite similar case was resolved on Tuesday — and it’s kind of a slap in the face for Lori.

Michelle Janavs is the heir to the Hot Pockets fortune, which means she’s rich — but also flaky, LOLz! In all seriousness, her family is worth an estimated $4 BILLION. And she spent big bucks cheating to get her kids into exclusive schools.

Like Lori, Michelle also denied any wrongdoing at first. But the government continued to put the pressure on with new charges. Unlike the Hallmark Channel poster girl, Michelle eventually caved in and pleaded guilty to one count each of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. (Lori still faces these charges AND has since also been hit with federal programs bribery.)

And so Janavs admitted to conspiring with fraudster Rick Singer (who was busted very early on and flipped, helping the FBI get evidence on everyone else). Per her guilty plea, she:

  • paid $50k to “fix” her daughter’s ACT test — twice
  • agreed to pay $200k to USC athletics administrator Donna Heinel (the same one who allegedly conspired with Lori) to get her daughter into the school as a fake volleyball recruit

She was also accused of paying $400k to Georgetown to get her son in as a Division I tennis recruit. He actually DOES play tennis, though from reports — including a New Yorker interview with a star teammate who didn’t get in — he was nowhere near good enough to gain admission. It seems to have been in the face of new charges related to her son that Janavs folded and pleaded guilty.

On Tuesday the mother of three was sentenced in the case; prosecutors sought a reasonable 21 months — a guilty verdict for either of the crimes she was charged with could have gotten her 20 YEARS — but her legal team argued (again similarly to Lori’s defense) that she was a gullible mom who was duped by bad actors.

In the end Janavs got just 5 MONTHS, which, when all things considered, is extremely light. Heck, Lori has been in a prison of stress and public shame for longer than that.

We can only imagine how this must hurt seeing how lenient judges are being on those who were in her exact same position but chose to accept responsibility instead.

Do YOU think Lori should bite the bullet and plead guilty now? Or take her chances with a jury??

Walt Disney Co. names Bob Chapek new CEO. Bob Iger to stay on as company chairman



The Walt Disney Company has named a new CEO.

Bob Chapek is replacing Bob Iger, effective immediately, the company announced Tuesday.

Chapek, 60, was most recently chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, a position created in 2018 and has been with the company for 27 years, according to a news release. 

Iger will stay on as chairman through Dec. 31, 2021.

“With the successful launch of Disney’s direct-to-consumer businesses and the integration of Twenty-First Century Fox well underway, I believe this is the optimal time to transition to a new CEO,” said Iger in a statement. 

Last year, Iger said he planned to step down in 2021. He had previously set a target departure date of 2018, but in March 2017, his contract was extended to July 2, 2019. That December it was extended again through the end of 2021.

Iger became Disney’s president and chief operating officer in 2000 and added the CEO title in 2005 after Michael Eisner departed. He became chairman in 2012.

He oversaw the expansion of the Mouse House, which added 21st Century Fox’s movie and TV studios and other assets including Fox’s 30% stake in Hulu. The $71.3-billion transaction closed in March 2019.

Chapek is the seventh CEO in company’s nearly 100-year history, Iger said, saying that Chapek “has proven himself exceptionally qualified to lead the Company into its next century.”

His annual base salary is $2.5 million and he is eligible for a bonus of “not less than 300% of the annual base salary,” according to a document filed with the Securities and Exchanges Commission. 

Chapek also will receive “a long-term incentive award having a target value of not less than $15 million” for each fiscal year of the agreement which goes through Feb. 28, 2023, according to the document.

This story will be updated.
