SEAN LOWE: Bachelor Becomes Houston Hero
Heroes are abundant this week in Houston.
One of them, Sean Lowe, came to fame four years ago on reality TV as The Bachelor. Sean loaned a boat from a social media follower and towed it from Dallas to Houston. He’s spent the week making rescue runs through flooded neighborhoods.
He posted to Instagram, (quote) “My heart broke for all the elderly, who are immobile. The mothers trapped in their homes with young babies. But I was encouraged by the selflessness of so many Texans.”
Sean detailed a traumatic experience where a rescue ended badly. He told Entertainment Tonight how he gave first aid to a heart attack victim. (quote) “We pulled him from a canoe. It took three of us giving CPR for about 15 to 20 minutes before we could get him to an ambulance. His heart was not beating. His face was as blue as blue gets. It really shook me up.”
TAYLOR SWIFT: Flowers to Dancers for “Keeping Our Secret''
Taylor Swift had flower bouquets delivered to her “Look What You Made Me Do" dancers. The card read, (quote) “Thanks for keeping our secret. I'm so proud of it. I hope you will be too. Sending my love and gratitude, Taylor."
Taylor trusted the team to keep their mouths shut. Everybody on the video production had inside information that never leaked. The backup dancers might have been the weakest link, as they were the only other ones in front of the camera. (E! News)
One of her BFFs, Todrick Hall, revealed to Entertainment Tonight, (quote) “She called and said, ‘I'm working on this project that's super secret but I know I can trust you. Will you not tell anyone?’” It felt like Christmas came early because when the music video came out my phone blew up.”
However, one of her friends talked with People magazine. They revealed the secret behind Taylor’s self-imposed exile after splitting with Tom Hiddleston. (quote) “She felt like her personal life was spinning out of control. She needed to disappear to reinvent herself.”
