This is the hunky professor and former police lieutenant dating Wendy Williams - the man the talk show host confessed she's 'crazy about' to her studio audience on Monday. Bronx based Dr. Darrin Porcher, 52, is a retired NYPD detective, criminal justice professor and 9/11 hero, as well as a TV and radio commentator and regular contributor to DailyMailTV. He also appears on Fox, CNN, MSNBC and HLN and has appeared on The Wendy Williams Show in the past. A source close to Williams revealed the star is 'smitten' with her new crush, but they're taking it slow. But when DailyMailTV contacted Dr. Porcher he laughed and denied he was dating Williams. 'I'm flattered,' he said, 'but that's not the case. I was brought in to provide security for Wendy during her divorce, she wanted someone with an air of legitimacy. But that's where it ends, I'm happily in a relationship right now.'

Memorial day weekend
A Philadelphia woman whose violent arrest at a New Jersey beach was captured on video has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit. Emily Weinman, 22, is suing the city of Wildwood and Wildwood police Officers Thomas Cannon, Robert Jordan and Lt. Kenneth Gallagher. She alleges police escalated the situation and lied to a grand jury about what happened on the beach over Memorial Day weekend last year when Weinman repeatedly refused to give officers her name when they questioned her about the presence of alcohol on the beach. A video shot by a nearby beachgoer showed an officer punching her twice in the head as she lies on the sand, her legs flailing. She pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in February. Emily Weinman was indicted last year on two counts of aggravated assault of police, resisting arrest, throwing bodily fluids, and obstruction. She's now filing a federal lawsuit against Wildwood and three police officers This shocking video shows the moment a New Jersey officer repeatedly … [Read more...] about Mom, 22, sues cops for ‘lying’ about what happened when she was violently arrested in a bikini in front of her 18-month-old daughter on a beach during a confrontation over unopened cans of Twisted Tea
Winning tip: Free and easy, Finland Armed only with a towel, a bundle of firewood (in case stocks had run out), a pack of sausages and some spring water (to drink and throw on the stove), I went one evening with my Swedish friends to the tiny, do-it-yourself Sompasauna. Built by volunteers, it’s 15 minutes’ walk from the Kalasatama metro in Sompasaari, Helsinki. Free to use, it’s open day and night all year round and kept spotless. There are no lockers, showers or staff, so it’s real back to nature stuff. After enjoying the sauna, we went for a swim in the Gulf of Finland, then had a convivial barbecue with other visitors.• sompasauna.fiClare Georgian splendour, Tbilisi The old town of Tbilisi, capital of Georgia, has a great selection of traditional sulphur baths.

100 Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019) Quentin Tarantino’s latest jaw-dropper bumps Kill Bill: Vol 1 off the list in gloriously irreverent fashion. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt star as a fading western star and his mutt-loving stunt double in this relaxed and loving roast of bygone Tinseltown. CS Read the review 99 Bright Star (2009) An early lead for Ben Whishaw as the ailing John Keats romancing Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish) is the tremulous soul of this underappreciated Jane Campion drama. The butterflies are too tropical for Hampstead, but the rest is spot-on. CS Read the review 98 The Dark Knight (2008) The only comic book movie to make the cut is Christopher Nolan’s genre masterpiece: fatalist, bracing and forever the legacy of Heath Ledger, posthumously awarded an Oscar for his terrifying performance. CS Read the review 97 Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) Michael Moore’s finest hour: a blazing juggernaut with George W Bush, the Iraq war, the media, democracy and us, … [Read more...] about The 100 best films of the 21st century
Ben Youngs has warned Australia that England have yet to show their hand at the World Cup and dismissed concerns they will be undercooked for the first quarter-final in eight years against the Wallabies this weekend. England advanced as Pool C winners by virtue of the match against France on Saturday being cancelled, cruising through to the last eight with comfortable bonus point wins against Tonga, USA and Argentina, who were down to 14 men early on. The cancellation also means England will have had a two-week break before facing Australia – a side they have beaten six times in a row since Eddie Jones took over as head coach. The last time they lost against Australia was at the 2015 World Cup when the fly-half Bernard Foley inspired a 33-13 win to dump England out of their own tournament. Youngs started at scrum-half that day and remembers England being shellshocked by Australia’s ability to produce the unexpected but believes his side can turn the tables on Saturday in … [Read more...] about Ben Youngs warns Australia best is still to come before World Cup showdown
