The UFC is set to crown either American Michael Chandler or Brazil's Charles Oliveira as lightweight champion in Houston, Texas on Saturday, filling the void left by the retirement of undefeated Dagestani Khabib Nurmagomedov last October. Nurmagomedov, 32, announced his retirement in the cage following his submission victory over American Justin Gaethje in October 2020, prompting a rush to replace him at the top of one of the most competitive divisions in the UFC. Former Bellator champion Chandler quickly dispatched New Zealander Dan Hooker in his UFC debut in January and will fight for the UFC belt in only his second bout with the promotion.
Robert De Niro has injured his leg while on location in Oklahoma. The 77-year-old actor has been busy shooting Martin Scorsese's new film Killers of the Flower Moon, and is believed to have suffered the injury while he was on a break from the film set. The nature of how it occurred, and the extent of the injury itself, has yet to be confirmed. A representative for the actor confirmed the injury to Fox News and insisted the incident won't affect production on the movie, which also stars Leonardo DiCaprio. "(De Niro) was always scheduled to leave for New York for two weeks so his leg injury (has) nothing to do with the production schedule," the spokesperson added. According to reports, De Niro flew home to New York City on Thursday evening, and he will see a doctor on Friday. "They'd already shot the scenes they needed to get done at this point with Robert, so there won't be any delays," a set insider told TMZ.com. "It's unclear if he'll be back to shoot more after he's healed." De Niro plays powerful rancher William Hale in the hotly-anticipated film, while DiCaprio portrays his nephew Ernest Burkhart. Killers of the Flower Moon will be released on Apple TV+, with a premiere date yet to be confirmed.
Olivia Munn and John Mulaney are reportedly dating amid his divorce. Earlier this week, it was reported that the former Saturday Night Live star decided to end his six-year marriage to artist Anna Marie Tendler three months ago, and they confirmed the news in separate statements. And on Thursday night, a source told People that Mulaney is already back on the dating scene and recently struck up a romance with the X-Men: Apocalypse actress, who he reportedly first connected with socially several years ago. "This is very new, they're taking it slowly," a source close to Mulaney said. "They met at church in Los Angeles." Munn previously tweeted her support for the comic back in December when he entered rehab to conquer his alcohol and drug abuse demons, writing: "Sending SO MUCH love and support to John Mulaney. You got this." On Monday, Tendler issued a statement to New York Post's Page Six suggesting she was blindsided by his decision to separate. "I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage," she said through a spokesperson. "I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery." His representative added, "John will not have any further comment as he continues to focus on his recovery and getting back to work." Munn has previously dated sportsman Aaron Rodgers and she has been linked to Chris Pine, Justin Timberlake, Matthew Morrison, and Joel Kinnaman.
Ally Brooke was left feeling "embarrassed and ashamed" when a male executive she approached for help dealing with the "trauma" of being in Fifth Harmony responded inappropriately. The singer plans to be open with fans about what went on behind closed doors during her time in the U.S. girl group on her new podcast The Ally Brooke Show. And in a chat with TV show Extra, Ally recalled one particular incident with a male executive at the group's record label. "It was really terrible... There was a lot happening with the group and I went to this executive for help... This person said, 'Oh yes, I can help you,' and I felt so much comfort," she shared. "When you are under so much distress and despair and you have to hold it all in. This man, he approached me with a thong. That was the first thing that he gave me. When you go to someone for help and all they meet you with is inappropriateness, it's horrible - I felt embarrassed, ashamed. I felt helpless." While Ally didn't name the man in question, she hinted that he may be identified in the future as part of the ongoing #MeToo movement. "At that time, this person had a reputation, but it was accepted, so obviously I was really scared to say anything," she explained. "Now, I am so happy and I say this on my show, we have this movement where we can speak up and justice in some ways is getting served." Fifth Harmony, also featuring Dinah Jane, Normani Kordei and Lauren Jauregui, went on hiatus in March 2018, with Camila Cabello quitting the group in late 2016.
Actors James McAvoy and Sharon Horgan play a husband and wife struggling to keep their relationship together amid the Covid-19 lockdown in a new BBC drama. The stars filmed Together with The Crown director Stephen Daldry in just 10 days, from a script by Utopia's Dennis Kelly, who was seemingly inspired by the marital issues many couples and parents have faced during the global health pandemic. "Together is about a couple who totally hate each other, but have somehow found a way of existing together by not talking to, thinking about, noticing, communicating with or being in the same room as each other - then lockdown happens," Kelly explained. "It's about how humans negotiate their shared experiences when they think they have nothing in common other than staying alive, and it's about how you can hate what you love and love what you hate." Glass star McAvoy admits he was immediately drawn to the project. "Dennis writes so wittily for these characters and his script had me within the first few pages," he said. "When I heard Sharon was involved with Stephen Daldry directing it was a no brainer. "It's a hilarious, heartfelt, entertaining and unconsciously funny exploration of a relationship and a couple facing real tragedy across a year we have all lived through." Catastrophe star Horgan is also thrilled to have been involved in the lockdown story. "I think everyone who got involved in this film had no intention of doing a Covid drama, but then we read Dennis' script and changed our minds," she revealed. "We shot this in 10 days so it was a beautifully stressful experience." An air date has yet to be announced.

(Bloomberg) -- The pressure is on for boards to diversify, and it’s working. Since last June, 145 S&P 500 companies have added at least one Black director, a “brisk” pace compared to past years, according to recruiter Russell Reynolds Associates. Latino board appointments at public companies quadrupled from a year ago, and women, for the first time, hold almost a third of all seats on the S&P 500. Only one major U.S. initial public offering debuted with an all-male board last year. “Ninety plus percent of every board search that we’ve been asked to execute in the last nine months has had a strong focus on diversity, especially ethnic diversity,” said Keith Meyer, the co-head of board and chief executive recruiting at Allegis Partners. A year ago, only around half of his clients asked about finding women and minority candidates, Meyer estimated. The momentum has been driven largely by controversial quotas, similar to the rule proposed by Nasdaq Inc. Late last year, the stock exchange announced a plan to require listed companies to have at least one female and one underrepresented director. Companies without such directors can stay on the exchange if they explain their lack of diversity.The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission will decide by August whether to approve Nasdaq’s proposal. Meanwhile, all companies based in the state of California will have to meet the same requirements starting at the end of this year. In addition, since July 1, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. has refused to underwrite companies that don't have a certain level of board diversity. These constraints were front of mind for Carl Hull, chief executive of Maravai LifeSciences Holdings Inc. as the company prepared to go public last Summer. The four-member, all-male board had no choice but to diversify; the company is headquartered in San Diego, California and had chosen Goldman Sachs to underwrite its IPO. It was also seeking a listing on the Nasdaq exchange.Critics of quotas say they lower standards and give unfair advantages to people based on their race, ethnicity or gender. Working with Goldman and executive recruiter Heidrick & Struggles, in about three months Maravai found three qualified women to add to its roster: Anat Ashkenazi, chief financial officer at Eli Lilly & Co., Jessica Hopfield, a scientist and pharmaceutical industry advisor, and Susannah Gray, former CFO of Royalty Pharma. Maravai develops drugs and health therapies, including some technologies used in Covid vaccines, and all of these women had decades of experience in the medical sciences industry. Gray, who had never sat on a board before last year, now sits on four. “You get into that loop where if you haven’t been on a board you can’t get on a board,” she said. “Goldman broadened the aperture.” Traditionally, boards have been stacked with friends and family of founders, executives, and other directors. That pattern has kept them largely White and male, and needs to change if companies want to meet new mandates, said Ilana Wolfe, head of corporate board engagement at Goldman Sachs. “There’s real value in selecting someone you know and trust,” she said. “But when the only pool candidates you know and trust all look the same and likely have shared experiences and backgrounds, that’s not efficient for optimizing talent.” In the past year, Goldman has helped find 23 diverse directors for 21 companies, the bank said. Among those companies was Root Inc., a car insurance company. CEO Alex Timm had been trying and failing for more than a year to find diverse directors. The company is based in Ohio, which has no board quotas, but wanted Goldman Sachs underwrite its IPO last fall. The bank helped him find Jerri DeVard, former chief marketing officer at Home Depot who was already on the Under Armour Inc. board. This year DeVard also helped found the Black Executive CMO Alliance, a group of c-suite executives from companies such as Amazon and Netflix pushing for more Black executives in marketing roles. Often, boards look for certain credentials, like c-suite experience, in potential directors. Women and minorities are notoriously underrepresented in those roles, leading to their underrepresentation on boards. “The system was designed for majorities to succeed and not minorities,” said DeVard. “We’re not playing on a level playing field.” Both the MeToo movement and Black Lives Matter protests brought greater awareness to the discrimination women and minorities face that has kept them out of positions of power. But the push for board diversity is as much about improving governance by adding different kinds of thinkers to to the table. Hull said the new directors at Maravai LifeSciences have changed the dynamic and brought fresh new perspectives. In their second meeting early this year, the three women had different ideas about communication strategies than the veterans, Hull said.“All of us speak up,” Gray, one of the new directors, said. “There’s no sense that any of us were put on the board because conveniently we happen to have the right gender.”The fate of the Nasdaq rule remains unclear. The exchange said it got almost 85% support for the plan among the more than 200 comments submitted during the SEC’s comments period this winter. That included notes of approval from Facebook Inc. chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg and U.S. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto and Kirsten Gillibrand. Newly confirmed SEC Chair Gary Gensler is exploring recommendations for company disclosures of board-diversity data. In addition, Congress is considering a law that would require companies to include board diversity in regulatory filings.Republicans on the Senate Banking Committee urged the SEC to reject the rule, arguing it’s not Nasdaq’s role to “act as an arbitrator of social policy or force a prescriptive one-size-fits-all solution upon markets.”When the proposal was announced in December, only about a quarter of Nasdaq-listed companies met the proposed standard. Even if the rule isn't approved, the face of corporate boards will continue to change.
