Zack Clayton Carpinello is a good sport! For Jenni “JWoww” Farley’s latest YouTube video, the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star gave her boyfriend a “face full of glam” as she subjected him to the boyfriend makeup challenge.
“You have no idea what I’m about to do,” Farley, 33, says in the video as she assembles her makeup products. “I’m doing full makeup. Like, eye shadow, mascara, I got red lips…
Carpinello quips: “Do I get your eyelashes? That’s your full get-up, so…”
Close to the end of the 13-minute clip, Carpinello finally gets to see his glammed-up visage. “Holy s–t,” he says, examining himself in a mirror.
“I feel like I did a decent job, except for your lips,” Farley observes. “Listen, don’t like it that much.”
It’s not uncommon to see musicians cross over into film and TV nowadays. Just yesterday, it was announced that Janelle Monáe will be starring in the upcoming second season of Homecoming, taking over for Julia Roberts. Of course, there was also Lady Gaga’s leading role in A Star Is Born. Now it’s The Weeknd’sturn, as it was announced that he will be making his film debut in Uncut Gems, which also stars Adam Sandler, Lakeith Stanfield, Idina Menzel, and former NBA star Kevin Garnett. According to IMDb, both The Weeknd and Garnett will be portraying themselves in the film.
The Toronto International Film Festival describes the movie, which is set to debut at TIFF later this year, as “an electrifying crime thriller about Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler), a charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score.” The description continues, “When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.”
Buenos Aires, Argentina—Argentine boxer Hugo Santillan died on Thursday (Friday Manila time) from injuries suffered in a fight on Saturday, the second such death in just two days after that of Russian Maxim Dadashev in the United States.
Santillan, who was 23, collapsed while the result was announced of his 10-round draw with Uruguayan Eduardo Abreu in San Nicolas, just north of the Argentine capital Buenos Aires.
He was taken to hospital where he underwent an operation to relieve pressure due to swelling on the brain caused by a head trauma, hospital sources said. He died of a heart attack.
Dadashev died on Tuesday from brain injuries suffered in his fight with Puerto Rican Subriel Matias on Friday night in Maryland. He was 28.
Nothing appeared wrong with Santillan as he fought to a draw with Abreu but while waiting to hear the result announced, he collapsed and lost consciousness.
He was fighting for the World Boxing Council (WBC) Latino Silver lightweight title, held by Abreu.
“We join Hugo’s family and friends in grief,” said the WBC on Twitter.
Santillan’s previous fight, a 10-round points defeat to Artem Harutyunyan in Germany, was only five weeks earlier.

NEW YORK - 1 Power: Thurman is clearly the bigger man and a better pure power puncher, thus his "One Time" moniker. The problem, however, has been his inability to sit down on his punches and finish opponents the more he has evolved as a boxer. Not counting fights that were stopped due to cuts or injury, Thurman hasn't recorded a true knockout since 2013.Read more ...
