“We have lovingly and carefully taken the time we have needed to arrive at our decision to separate,” they said in a joint statement at the time. “We share an abundance of love and respect for one another and will continue to lead with our hearts from that place. We kindly request your compassion and respect for our privacy moving forward.”In August, the duo sparked reconciliation rumors when they were spotted at lunch. One month later, a source told Us Weekly that Julianne and the former NHL player were “giving things another shot.”- Advertisement – – Advertisement – One day later, the Footloose star broke her social media silence when she chronicled her work out session with brother Derek Hough via her Instagram Story.

The athlete opened up about his coping mechanisms on the Monday, November 2, episode of his “How Men Think” podcast.“I also say I’m grateful for the blessings and the challenges in my life,” he said. “I’m grateful that life isn’t just easy. Prayer has been a really big one for me to be able to acknowledge what I’m feeling. It’s just practicing gratitude out loud.”Listen to Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood as each week the editors of Us break down the hottest entertainment news stories!

Dear Editor,Guyana’s recent approach to Venezuelan migrants and businessmen places increased risk within its borders. We must remain cognisant of the Syndicato that has increasing influence within the Venezuelan populace due to the economic conditions that currently prevail in Venezuela. This will also raise red flags with the anti-narcotics agencies in the USA. It would be unfortunate for Guyana to have an experience that is similar to Guatemala’s, whose northern territory is under the control of drug lords.After all, the taking of Essequibo can be achieved by various strategies. There is no need for Guyanese to aid our enemy in this process.Best regards,Jamil Changlee
