Activist investor Carl Icahn has had a change of heart as it relates to his desire for Apple to boost its stock buyback program. In a letter to Apple shareholders on Monday, Icahn wrote that he has decided to ditch his "non-binding proposal, especially when the company is already so close to fulfilling our requested repurchase target." Icahn for months has been requesting Apple CEO Tim Cook boost his company's plans for a stock buyback program. When companies buy back shares, they effectively reduce any watering-down of share value, giving large shareholders even more value in a company.
Country icon Reba McEntire and her manager-husband Narvel Blackstock are calling it quits. While the couple does not use the word "divorce" in a joint statement released today, they do declare "the end of their marriage" after 26 years of matrimony. They have worked together for 35 years and will continue to do so. Blackstock also has three children from a previous marriage, including fellow artist manager Brandon, who is married to pop powerhouse Kelly Clarkson.
When a runaway bride is the least shocking thing on UnREAL 's season finale, you know it was one for the ages. Lifetime's behind-the-scenes look at the making of a Bachelor-like reality show ended its hit first season tonight, shaking up every single relationship in ways we never saw coming. And it. Was. Dark . Thanks to Quinn's (Constance Zimmer) meddling, "suitor" Adam (Freddie Stroma ) dumped Rachel (Shiri Appleby ) just as they were about to run away to Europe together, leaving her to wage war on his upcoming televised wedding out of revenge.
The carnival in Barbados is currently taking place, which means Rihanna is showing off her almost-naked body in a jeweled ensemble that leaves little to the imagination. RiRi parades her enviable figure in a custom Kadooment Day ZuluIntl Mockingjay costume which included a detailed headdress and large costume wings. Before getting decked out for the festival, Rihanna was relaxing poolside and showing off her curves (yet again) in a variety of bikinis over the weekend.
Stand by your man, Behati Prinsloo, lest sinister forces at work whisk him away. While "The Voice" host Adam Levine recently joined the ranks of the married, now two of his fellow coaches are going through divorces. Blake Shelton, whose now ex-wife Miranda Lambert has performed and served as a guest mentor on the show as well, is actually already divorced. The country music super-stars waited until the split was a done deal before they shared the news with the world. But just today, Gwen Stefani prompted a collective sad sigh as news broke that she and Gavin Rossdale are divorcing after 13 years of marriage. Not only that, but Reba McEntire revealed today that she and husband Narvel Blackstock separated a few months ago after 26 years together. It's an epidemic!
Authorities said, a circus tent collapsed when a severe storm raked a northern New Hampshire fairground Monday, killing two people and injuring 15 others. State Department of Safety spokesman Michael Todd confirmed the fatalities. The National Weather Service had issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the area during the time of the collapse. This collapse comes a day after one man died and more than a dozen were injured when a tent where people had sought shelter during a brief storm, blew off its moorings and fell on some of the crowd at a festival in a Chicago suburb.
