general-manager

Raw Preview Oct. 3, 2016: Will Seth Rollins continue to defy Raw General Manager Mick Foley?

Raw has a long tradition of Superstars bucking authority. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Dean Ambrose, John Cena, Roman Reigns, The Rock and even current Raw General Manager Mick Foley have challenged the status quo when their backs were up against the wall. And yet, that doesn’t mean The Hardcore Legend will stand for Seth Rollins’ continued refusal to heed his directives.

This past Monday night, after sustaining bruised ribs at the hand of WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens at WWE Clash of Champions, The Architect attempted to confront The Prizefighter — an act that blatantly went against Foley’s orders. Although it’s unclear as to whether Rollins will be medically cleared Monday night in the City of Angels, he will undoubtedly attempt to get his hands on Owens once again. If that’s the case, Foley might be pushed too far, and the consequences for “The Man” could be severe.

“Hey babe, sorry I’ve been busy moving all day but I’ll text you later!”

We had been friends for about a year and had shared some pretty personal things with each other. We met at my current job where she was a general manager and we became super close, super quick. In September of 2015, she was fired, but we still continued to talk almost on a daily basis. I was always going over to her house to help her with something. 

Around the end of September/beginning of October, she texted me this since she was moving out of her boyfriend’s parents’ house. She never texted me back. I tried to talk to her for about a month, both via text message and on facebook, and never got a response. I knew she was online but she never read or replied to my message. I kept her as a friend on facebook, and in my phone, for a few months and early this year, I decided I had enough and completed deleted her from social media and out of my phone. It wasn’t the first time a friend had walked away for no reason but I wasn’t about to torture my heart again by holding onto something that wasn’t meant to be held onto.

About a month ago, she requested to add me as a friend on facebook again. I go back and forth all the time with re-adding her and talking to her again, but at the same time, I don’t want to do that to myself. As I re-think my friendship with her, I realize that she was the reason I would get so worked up about the dumbest little things, which almost cost me my friendship with my best friend. I have yet to accept her friend request and don’t know if I ever will.

It’s strange that the media read by non-1D fans (ex. People, Cosmopolitan, Rolling Stone) are so Larry-oriented lately while the “sleazy” media sources (the mirror, the sun) that the fans usually follow continue to push babygate and a het narrative.

Very Important Message to ARMY

Your life is not a fan fiction. BTS isn’t going to fall in love with you when you show up at the airport. I understand you all want to tell them you love them but remember actions speak louder than words. Show them you love them by respecting their privacy and personal space.

Let’s say that you’re lucky enough to get to the second stage of your career, that as a result of your perseverance, your connections, and/or your wonderful auditions, you have joined a band or landed a small role on a television show. Now you need to take it one stage further. So what do you do? Easy: Date a celebrity.

Pardon me for being cynical, but I believe that many celebrity couples are complete PR illusions. Sometimes relationships between stars are genuine, but just as often they are skillful ways of getting a relative unknown into the spotlight. When you’re an aspiring celebrity and you pair off with another aspiring celebrity, you don’t just double or triple your exposure. Rather, you multiply it by a factor of ten or twenty.


People in the media are fascinated, and always have been, by the idea that famous or even semifamous people are shagging each other.
You may think I’m joking, but I’m completely serious. Entertainment careers are all about momentum and coverage, and relationships are an important part of that. And remember, celebrity relationships don’t even have to be normal. Take Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley…

Please fire me. We recently hired a new general manager, who tends to over-explain very simple things. Today, regrettably, I asked him to double check a tax exemption profile I filled out, as it was federal and I’m more accustomed to state. The thirty minute seminar ended with him explaining how to use a stapler remover.
