How Baby Boomers Have Killed the Manhattan Power Lunch

How Baby Boomers Have Killed the Manhattan Power Lunch

You know what sounds great? Plowing through three martinis and an overpriced steak at an upscale Midtown Manhattan restaurant on a Wednesday afternoon, all on the company dime and under the vague guise that I’m sourcing up, entertaining clients, or maybe just brainstorming ways to save the world with my remarkably drunk boss. Unfortunately, most of my weekday lunches involve something more along the lines of shoveling an odd assortment of KIND bars, baby carrots, and string cheese into the hole located in the bottom half of my face while I race to make up for the fact that I’m already behind on the million tasks I said I’d complete yesterday, if not before. That I do not consider this daily arrangement ideal might come as a surprise to the New York Post’s Steve Cuozzo, or whoever wrote the headline for his meandering recent column, “How millennials have killed the Manhattan power lunch.” Cuozzo contends that the reason for the decline of these so-called power lunches⁠—which he defines as “schmoozing and table-hopping encounters by heavy-hitters who could move markets”⁠—rest squarely on people my age. The evidence he provides for his thesis is sparse, but seems to include some assemblage of the words “FaceTime,” “microgreens,” “Kardashian,” and “clickbait.” If I’m being kind to C

Larsa Pippen Splashes Out on Diamond Chain for Kim Kardashian After Drama with Kourtney on KUWTK

Kanye West wasn’t the only one who gave Kim Kardashian West an extravagant birthday present on Tuesday.
The Keeping up with the Kardashians star’s longtime friend Larsa Pippen, 45, also shelled out some serious cash, gifting Kardashian West a diamond chain necklace from celeb-favorite jeweler Jadelle Beverly Hills.
“Oh my gosh, look what Larsa got me for my birthday,” Kardashian West can be heard saying in an Instagram Stories video posted on Tuesday. “Wow! Thank you so much, Larsa. I love you.”

Even Kardashian West’s 3-year-old son Saint was impressed with the bling — he grabs ahold of the silver Cuban link chain in one clip as his mom can be heard saying, “You think this is yours, Saint?”
The KKW Beauty founder showed off Pippen’s gift after revealing that husband West, 42, donated $1 million to to criminal justice organizations Cut 50, Buried Alive Project, Equal Justice Initiative and Anti-Recidivism Coalition in her name.

Needless to say, Khloé Kardashian‘s relationship with Lamar Odom is complicated.
In a sneak peek at Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloé opens up to sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian about where things stand with her ex-husband, revealing he recently reached out in an attempt to reconnect.
“I miss him all the time, but I’m not in a place where I want to get back with him,” she says. “So he called me and he was like, ‘I just knew we were going to talk again at some point, I’m just so happy. I would love to see you, I’ve been dying to see you in person. I just feel like we have so much to talk about.’”

“I mean, I think it would be nice if you guys had a face-to-face after all these years,” says Kim, 39. “I just feel like maybe you have to get that out.”

Kim Kardashian Reveals the Name She and Kanye West Almost Chose for Psalm (It’s a Nod to Dad!)

Although they’re known for choosing unique names for their children, Kanye and Kim Kardashian West leveled up even further when they named their fourth baby Psalm — but he was almost called something much different.
On Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the couple welcomed their now-5-month-old son via surrogate ahead of their five-year wedding anniversary.
And when Kardashian West, 39, brought the newborn to meet the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family at dinner, she explained how they chose Psalm’s name — and revealed the moniker they almost went with.

“His name was going to [be] Ye, but Kanye didn’t like Ye because Ye doesn’t mean anything,” she said. “We looked up every name in the bible that had Ye in the beginning, and the only name was Yehezkel, and [sister kylie Jenner] called at the last second and was like, ‘No!’ “
“Psalm and Saint sound good together,” th

Larsa Pippen is defending herself against Keeping Up with the Kardashians viewers who aren’t on her side of the drama that was featured in the latest episode.
In a contentious scene from a girls’ trip to Turks and Caicos, Pippen, 45, got into an argument with fellow friend-to-the-Kardashians Sarah Howard, when the latter wanted the group to comfort a woman crying in the bathroom.

“Who cares? It’s not our fault. It’s not our problem,” Pippen says in the episode. “I’m not trying to get to the bathroom and get in someone’s business.”

Bringing Back ‘E! True Hollywood Story’ Is Pointless

Bringing Back ‘E! True Hollywood Story’ Is Pointless

E! True Hollywood Story, the docuseries highlighting tragic tales, juicy scandals, behind-the-scenes gossip, and fascinating figures from Hollywood’s past and present, is returning October 8. E!’s show became a staple for the pop culture and true crime obsessed, and it was one of the first places where they could feed their fascinations in a pre-internet and podcast world. But considering the amount of information readily available, and the endless media that exists to satisfy a thirst for the dark and dirty, bringing back the iconic show is pointless. The series originally premiered in 1996 and ran for 17 seasons, telling more than 500 stories of Hollywood’s most salacious and sad stories. Memorable episodes include one dedicated to the murder of 80s actress Rebecca Schaeffer, another on the tumultuous life and untimely death of model and reality star Anna Nicole Smith, and one titled “Mischa & Kristin: Babes of the O.C.” There were episodes dedicated to serial killers and their profilers, royal family

Keeping Up with the Kardashians Rekap: Down with Corey Gamble!

Keeping Up with the Kardashians Rekap: Down with Corey Gamble!

Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian are no longer a romantic item.

But they will be parents forever and ever and it was in this capacity on Sunday night that the two teamed up to take on Corey Gamble, as the latest Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode centered on a major blowup between Kris Jenner’s daughter and boyfriend.

It all started when Kourtney said the following during a family meal:

“You guys, I don’t have a nanny anymore.

“She said [Penelope] was really upset. She was putting her in the car, and Penelope scratched her face. 

“But P can be out of control. I think she almost blacks out and does these wild things…”

Putting aside for a moment the troubling notion of a toddler blacking out and doing wild things, Gamble took it upon himself and offered up a polarizing opinion:

“If a kid scratched you, can you pop the kid and it’s cool?”

Uhhh, wha
