Tayshia Adams and John Paul Jones Just Revealed Their Relationship Status

John Paul Jones and Tayshia Adams were fan favorites on their respective seasons of The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, so you can imagine fans’ excitement when they became a couple on Bachelor in Paradise. But their union wasn’t exactly drama-free. The two experienced conflict both together and apart (remember Jones’ feud with Derek Peth)? Adams and Jones’ time on Paradise ultimately ended with a breakup of sorts, but there’s still so much more to their story. Below, the two reality stars discuss the status of their relationship, the BiP group text, and what’s next for both of them.

Glamour: JPJ, you revealed tonight that there’s a Bachelor in Paradise group text chain. Is there anyone not on it?

Tayshia Adams: I think everybody’s on it.

John Paul Jones: I think most of the people that stayed around for more than one night are on it, simply because if you were on for more than one rose ceremony, you just had the chance to develop friendships, and some people were on for such a short period of time, they just didn’t have the time to connect with anyone.

Tayshia: Also, John Paul Jones is no longer in the group chat, because he left!

Why did you leave?

JPJ: So at the time I was in the group chat, I was just trying to get over Tayshia, and we were both in the group chat, and I just didn’t want anything to do with her.

Tayshia: Isn’t that so rude?

No, because it makes sense!

JPJ: Tayshia broke up with me, and the best way to get over someone is to just not interact with them everyday or be constantly reminded of them.

I agree.

Tayshia: It’s true, it’s true.

So that’s why you left it?

JPJ: Yeah.

And you haven’t rejoined it?

JPJ: Yeah, no, and honestly, I’m in a group chat with the Bachelorette guys, and I don’t really have the time to stay updated on everything that goes on.

But you’re still on the Paradise group chat, Tayshia?

Tayshia: I am, I am, but I put it on silent because it kind of goes off sometimes, but it’s good, it’s fun.

What do you guys talk about?

Tayshia: The honest truth is that it’s just a lot of love and support. We call some people out, like each other, like ‘haha, that’s funny, Jordan,’ but honestly it’s mostly us saying we love each other and are here for each other and support each other.

What are you guys most excited about for your future together?

Tayshia: We’re working through what any normal couple works through, just because we did have a little bit of time away doesn’t mean that we don’t still go through our ups and downs. We’re just trying to navigate it as best we could, and I think that because we no longer have the cameras and all that stuff, we’re very open and transparent because we learned how to be really vulnerable and honest being on the show. I might be a little more vocal than maybe I should be at some times, but I’d rather him know where I’m coming from, and vice-versa.

JPJ: Right. Yeah, and I think Tayshia made the mature decision to end things on Paradise because it eliminated a lot of unnecessary pressure that may have come if we rushed into something, so I think we can let time kind of decide how this will play out.

Could Bachelor in Paradise’s Derek Peth Officiate Demi Burnett and Kristian Haggerty’s Wedding?

Demi: I adore him and I want him to find love no matter how that happens for him. I’m friends with Derek. I’m friends with Peter. I’m friends with Mike. I’m friends with all these guys. So whoever was going to be picked as the next Bachelor, I have no choice but to stan, because I’m friends with all of them.

Will you stay in touch with Derek after all this?

Demi: Of course! We talk to Derek all of the time! He’s great. He’s such a great guy.

Derek could officiate your wedding!

Demi: Derek, yes! How fucking ironic would that be?

He could do it with your dog, Kismet!

Kristian: Yes, Kismet!

So you guys aren’t living together at the moment, but you are living close to each other. What are you most excited about after this finale airs? What do you hope to do publicly since you’re such role models?

Demi: I am assuming I can speak for both of us, but we don’t know, we don’t. We don’t know what we’re doing. We’re taking it day by day, and we are finally going to be able to have a normal relationship where we can just go places, and of course we want to be involved in anything that would be supporting the community and really just helping anybody out. So we’re just taking it day by day and we’re going to figure it out along the way.

How would you like to see the franchise evolve after this? What can it do to continue to build on the major win I felt it achieved this season?

Demi: Again, I don’t know. I just…we just are two people who loved each other and they embraced that, so I think they’ll embrace anybody who comes on the show and it’ll just be more normalized, is my hope.

Do you think we’ll ever get a Bachelorette with all female contestants? Is that something you’d like to see?

Demi: I mean, of course. You know, it’s not something that I have experience…I don’t have the credentials to tell someone how to plan their TV program. I don’t know what I’m talking about, but I am open to seeing anything, and I think the rest of the world is at this point, is open to seeing anything too. So anything is possible, there’s no rules. Love is love. Retweet!

Haus Laboratories Review: What To Buy From Lady Gaga’s Makeup Line

While you might expect the line to be over the top, it’s surprisingly minimal and comprises only four products: Glam Attack Liquid Shimmer Powders, RIP Lip Liners, Le Riot Glosses, and Eye-lie-ner Liquid Eyeliner. The products were mostly inspired by what Gaga and Tanno found to be lacking in the market, as well as some of Gaga’s necessities. And, of course, they were all “Gaga tested” on the star and her dancers during her Enigma shows. If they’re strong enough to withstand that, they should work for us.

We had Glamour editors ranging from casual listeners to super fans put the products to the test to see what’s worth your money. Read on for our honest reviews.

Gaga and Tanno couldn’t find a glitter that stayed put for an entire show yet came off with a single wipe, so they created one. These multi-use pigments can be used all over your face (Gaga likes to use the shade Rose B*tch on her eyes, lips, and cheeks) and don’t budge once set. Tanno likes a brush to apply it, but you can also use your fingers, as long as you shake them before using them.

Bella Cacciatore

“As a huge Gaga stan, I had really high hopes for this collection, and I have to say it was a little caught off guard by how minimal it was when I saw the photos. But, having held it in my hands, the simple black packaging feels special and sophisticated. I patted Legend, a stunning gold, on my lids with a brush, and used Aphrodite, a rose quartz, on my cheeks as a highlighter.

For such shimmery products they have no grit or tackiness, they dry in seconds and feel like I have nothing on. As a highlight I think they’re a little too glittery, or at least for day time, but I really love the gold on my eyes. It looks almost molten, and the shine can be seen from across the room. I’ve been touching my eyes all day and the glitter hasn’t budged or rained down my face. I also used the Lip Liner in En Pointe to overline and fill in my lips, and loved how creamy it was yet still had great definition. Is there anything Gaga can’t do?” —Bella Cacciatore, beauty associate

Lindsay Schallon

“In an actual huge surprise to me, pink shimmery eyeshadow has become a mainstay in my beauty routine summer. I love that it brings out the green in my eyes and it always feels a little more special than a basic neutral. Now I’ve got another to add to my rotation, because this shade is stupid pretty. I love that the applicator is slightly tipped and comes to a point at the end, which makes it easy to brush on without any thought—both on your lids and as underliner. It was a smidge creasy on my oily eyelids by 5 P.M., but nothing a quick swipe of my finger couldn’t fix. I totally get why this one is Gaga’s favorite.” —Lindsay Schallon, senior beauty editor

Brionna Jimerson

“I’ve low-key been waiting for Haus Laboratories to drop so that I could try out a more pigmented eye look a la the Spring 2020 runways. Gaga’s liquid eyeshadow in Dynasty is exactly what I was on the hunt for: a heavily pigmented yet lightweight eyeshadow that’s built for finger application. A little product goes a VERY long way. Not even a full brush-load of this emerald—which was inspired by Gaga’s look at the 2015 Grammy’s—is needed to give ultimate payoff. I’m a fan.” —Brionna Jimerson, associate social media manager

Blow Job Techniques Are Overrated, Says the Woman Who Wrote a Show About Them

And to me, the ways in which a blow job veers away from that imagined semen milking machine are not limitations. The closer you can make your mouth into a jerk-off device, a lubed-up flesh light, etc, what have you won? In fact, I argue that only once you’ve learned to retain and revel in whatever you perceive your specific limitations to be, there, then, you will have found your blow job voice.

Jacqueline Novak during her one-woman show Get On Your Knees.

Monique Carboni

Cast out the swirl of concerns on technique in favor of a simple notion: that putting your face near someone’s dick is already radically sexy. It’s generous. Not in terms of providing an orgasm, but in terms of being willing to have someone stare at your face so close to their dick. Your face is the center of your dignity, your most specifically you place. It’s the big front facing fingerprint, that which will remain, past death, in a gorgeous portrait on your grandchildren’s stairwell, in a newspaper clipping about your greatest achievement, in your loved one’s locket. The willingness to put that, your site of dignity, posterity, identity, the most recognizable part of yourself, right up near someone’s silly dick! That’s so cool.

And it’s not just cool because it’s your face, but also because it’s your mind. They say “giving head,” and I never liked the term, but there’s a metaphor there I can get into the spirit of. To bring a dick right up into your skull, into the realm of your beautiful brain, your seat of memories, curiosities, notions, and dreams…there’s a kindness there. To elevate the simple, pulsating penis by bringing it so close to your sparkly, neon, neural network, nothing but a roof a mouth between the two? It’s like inviting a dog into your special study, a library of your rarest books. You’re letting someone’s wet dog roll around in the site of your most glittering wonder.

Any intersection of your face, mind, mouth with someone’s dick? It’s outrageous, and it’s enough. So if someone says, “What in the hell kinda blow job was that?” You can say, “That? That was my head on a stick.”

Here’s How Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour From ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Feel About Living Together

Hannah: We definitely talk about it a lot, but we also…we talk about how excited we are, but we also talk about how important it is that we really enjoy this engagement, and just enjoy this whole stage of our lives. We are younger, but we both are ready for all of that, and whenever we are both able to move in together, that’s going to be a good time for us to start discussing a wedding and everything like that.

Dylan: We’re just enjoying every day we have together and then moving in together, and then kind of figuring out the wedding.

Chris Harrison mentioned tonight at the reunion how infatuated Dylan was all season with you, but Hannah, you mentioned there was so much we didn’t see. So what didn’t we see?

Hannah: The hours and hours and hours and hours of conversations that we had about life, about each other, about…even me also really pursuing [Dylan], and having my struggles with all of that. I think they showed some parts of it, but I don’t think they fully showed how much I was leaning toward Dylan.

What do you think, Dylan? Did she pursue you?

Dylan: Hannah has some game! She has some game. We talked in that pool for hours about everything from our favorite foods to what we wanted to do in life, our hopes and dreams, how many kids we wanted, just in general just learning about each other. I think one of the first things she asked me was “What’s your five-year plan?” And “Where do you see yourself in five years?”

Hannah: We had actual conversations on Paradise. Not just “You’re cool, you’re sweet.” We’ve been laughing about it, and it’s fine, but we talked about so much more. We talked about what [Dylan] wants to do in his job, what his career plans are, what makes him, him. It’s fine, because there’s only so much they can show, but it’s just funny watching it back. I’ll take it, though.

Listen, I’m waiting for the day when a contestant asks the Bachelor or Bachelorette if they have a 401(k) plan.

Dylan: We talked about real estate! It’s important!

Hannah: Yeah, maybe one of these days they will!

Meghan Markle Reportedly Took 2-Hour Etiquette Lessons Before Meeting the Queen

We know that before Meghan Markle became an official member of the royal family, sheworked really hard to get familiar with all the traditions and etiquette that come with the territory. Now, Edmund Fry, a London-born etiquette expert, is showing people just how far she went to really understand her role. He recently told the Daily Mail that just before Markle met with Queen Elizabeth II, she sought him out for two-hour tea lessons that included everything from proper fork-handling to the exact way to sip tea.

Apparently, Markle met with Fry right before she moved to London. “She enjoyed it so much that she wanted to come back,” Fry told the publication. “The younger generation doesn’t know what bone china is and certainly don’t know anything about how to handle a cup and saucer, or how to handle a knife and fork… They come to us mainly to find out, ‘What should we do, as we are having this social event?’ The same sort of thing happened with Meghan. She knew she would be having tea with the Queen.”

According to the report, Markle didn’t make the reservation herself or under her own name. A friend did it for her at Fry’s Rose Tree Cottage tea room in Pasadena, California.

The Daily Mail had previously said that one of the Queen’s most trusted aides, Samantha Cohen, had helped Markle with other pieces of royal protocol once it became clear she was going to marry Prince Harry. Apparently, Markle underwent “six months of listening” and learned all about different rules, like when to curtsy.

Meghan Markle is now back in the spotlight after her a few months of maternity leave, so we’ll now get to see her pull off even more royal duties and show everything she’s learned about being a duchess.

1 in 16 Women Report Their First Experience With Sexual Intercourse Was Rape, Per New Study

A new study of government data has revealed a heartbreaking and maddening statistic about women and sexual assault. Per PBS, new research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association this week notes that for one in 16 women, their first experience with sexual intercourse was forced with rape or coercion.

That number is shocking, but how did the researchers arrive at it? According to PBS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention questioned a sample of 13,310 women, ages 18 to 44 about marriage, divorce, family life, reproductive health, and more between 2011 and 2017. (It should be noted that men were not asked about their first time and women with no history of vaginal intercourse and girls 17 or younger were not included in this sample.)

Still, a horrific 6.5 percent of the women questioned said their first time having sex was non-consensual. If that number is representative, it would mean about 3.3 million women in America are in a similar position. The average age of the women at the time of these assaults was about 15.6, with seven percent of the women telling researchers they were younger than 10 at the time of the assault, 29 percent saying they were between the ages of 11 and 14, and 39 percent saying the event happened between the ages of 15 and 17.

“Quite honestly, that’s the tip of the iceberg,” Laura Hawks, the co-author on the report and a research fellow at Harvard Medical School, said, noting that if the sample had included girls or women older than 45 the number might be even higher.

As women know all too well, the effects of sexual assault are real and can last a lifetime. Thirty percent of women whose first experience of sex was rape or assault reported an unwanted pregnancy later on, compared to 18 percent of women who said they made a choice to have sex for the first time. Women forced into sex also were slightly more likely to have had abortion and problems ovulating or menstruating.

One of the reasons for the study, according to Hawks, is to inform physicians about caring for patients who may have experienced a trauma. “Any physical exam can be traumatizing for someone who has encountered physical or sexual violence in the past,” she said. Patients should be able to grant permission before being asked tough questions and physicians should be sensitive in performing genital exams.

While these numbers are tough to read, studies like this one will hopefully prove vital in helping society recognize how pervasive violence against women truly is and inspire more medical professionals and people in general to believe their stories.

Amber Ruffin and Jenny Hagel Tell The Jokes You Can’t

“A lesbian bride is like a straight bride, except she’s experienced orgasm,” is the kind of joke you can expect to hear Jenny Hagel tell on Late Night with Seth Meyers, alongside her fellow writer and BFF, Amber Ruffin. Together, the women helm the segment “Jokes Seth Can’t Tell”, a delicious dedication to the kind of humor that’s off-limits to their straight, white, male boss.

“I’m black,” is how Ruffin opens the bit. To which Hagel replies, “And I’m gay!” The women then sandwich Meyers at his desk as they rip punchline after punchline about women, people of color, and the queer community. It’s a hilarious and cathartic reprieve in the midst of late night television, which remains alarmingly white and male.

Hagel and Ruffin are adept improvisers, but their ease with each other isn’t an act. The two have known each other for since both moved to Denver, Colorado, to develop a sketch show for Second City. “It was like being a comedian on a semester abroad. The two of us would just hang out and get to know each other,” Hagel tells Glamour. (Ruffin deadpans, “I first met Jenny and I thought she was stupid and I didn’t like her at all.”)

But the gig didn’t last long, and they lost touch after both left Denver. Still, when a spot opened up in Meyers’ writers’ room in 2016, Ruffin immediately thought of her old pal for the gig. And they’ve been happily writing jokes about lesbian penguins, Popeyes, and Ruffin’s “sweet chocolate buns” for the show ever since.

Here, the duo sounds off on networking, being “HR nightmares,” and making each other laugh on the job.

Network with your peers, not your elders

Amber Ruffin: When we needed to replace [comedian] Michelle Wolf—who does a butt ton of work, she’s a workhorse—on the show, the only person I knew who was also like that was Jenny. When we were at Second City in Denver, the assignment would be to come in with one sketch, and Jenny would come in with three. Whatever she was asked to do she always did more. So I thought she would be perfect here, because I’m not gonna do nothing. [Laughs.]

Jenny Hagel: Amber texted me one night saying, “Hey, I think we might be hiring someone if you want to send in a writing packet to be considered for the job.” She sent it to me on a Thursday night and asked me to give it to her by Sunday. I sat down on my little laptop and typed and typed all weekend. I was so grateful to Amber because at the time I didn’t have an agent or anything, so the only way I could’ve found out about one of these jobs would be through word of mouth.

One of the questions I get the most from young people who want to be comedy writers is about networking. I think there’s a weird myth that networking is meeting somebody who is several levels past where you are right now, giving them a business card, and convincing them to give you a job. Networking is actually just finding that thing you want to do, finding other people your age or at your station in life who also want to do it, hanging out with each other, and little by little helping each other advance. I didn’t “network” into this job. I hung out in Chicago, went to a lot of keg parties, and the people I did improv with and drank cheap beer with when I was 24 are now the people I recommend for jobs.
