Jay and Kristin Reunite + Remembering Kobe Bryant

We’re back for another installment of Pop Cultured, a weekly show where I report the top pop culture news of the week worth knowing about.

This week was a complete mixed bag of topics.

Our first story is about Former Bears Quarterback, Jay Cutler and a cryptic picture he posted with soon to be ex-wife Kristin Cavallari. Follow closely on this story because we unpack a few layers surrounding the backlash from this!

In story two, I dish on the first pictures released of Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana for an upcoming BioPic about the Former Princess of Wales. I admit defeat from a previous declaration on this one, as the pictures released truly stunned me!

In story three, I reflect back on the one year anniversary of the tragic death of NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, his daughter Giana and 7 other people aboard his private helicopter. I also share some of the incredible things Kobe had achieved off the basketball court.

Last but not least. we wrap up with some congrats and condolences. Congrats include an R&B star turning 40, a pop star pregnant with her first child, and the first ever rescue dog in the white house!

Condolences include the death of a TV and radio legend, and a 90’s sitcom star diagnosed with cancer.

Without further ado, let’s get you Pop Cultured!
