Jaime King turns heads in thigh-skimming black dress

She helped audiences ring in the holidays as the star of Hallmark’s The Mistletoe Promise.

And Jaime King was happy to celebrate the season Saturday, as she turned heads in a silk LBD at the Brooks Brothers Christmas celebration at their Rodeo Drive flagship in Beverly Hills.

The Hart Of Dixie beauty, 38, made it a family affair, taking sons Leo and James along with hubby Kyle Newman, 41.

She styled her fringed blonde locks in romantic curls while painting her pout cherry red. 

Keeping her accessories to a minimum, the Nebraska native pinned a lone golden leaf to her dress while wearing her wedding ring and a sparkling solitaire.

The Sin City actress brought her two sons – Leo, two, and James, four – to the event for a visit to Santa Claus.

Jaime and Kyle are ever the happy family, first meeting on the set of the 2005 film Fan Boys which she starred in and he directed.

The pair were married in an intimate LA ceremony in 2007 and the rest is history.

Tonight’s party was more than just a fun affair. 

In addition to kicking off the holiday season, the event helped raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with 10% of the evening’s proceeds going directly to the world-class medical institution. 

Meant to be: Jaime (above Thursday) and Kyle are ever the happy family, first having met on the set of their film Fan Boys in 2005

Australia’s wackiest road rules revealed

Don’t wave from a car, give way to SOME horses and make sure you don’t splash a person waiting for a bus – these are some of Australia’s weirdest and wackiest road rules.

State-by-state drivers have to face a different set of rules, as there is no set national guideline.

Using your horn unless you are warning someone or something of a potential accident, leaving your car unlocked unless you are within a short distance or even leaving a bike carrier on the car without carrying bikes are all strange laws that could see motorists fined and even have their licenses stripped.

Splashing a person with water who is waiting at a bus stop could result in a fine of $165, yet it is perfectly legal to splash someone in any other circumstance

The rain can prove a dangerous hazard for drivers at the best of times, but there’s a New South Wales law still in existence that makes it more challenging.

Splashing a person with water who is waiting at a bus stop could result in a fine of $165, yet it is perfectly legal to splash someone in any other circumstance.

NSW seems to have the pick of the wackiest laws, with Rule 268 of the road rules determining anyone waving from inside a vehicle, driver or passenger, can be fined.

It is also illegal to cross train tracks if you are in possession of any flammable material, including a BBQ gas cylinder, a lighter or even paint.

Drivers in the state also must be within 3 metres of their car if it is unlocked, or face retribution from police. 

Queensland isn’t without it’s own odd rules, as drivers must give way to horses that are specifically ‘restive’. That means any horse that is slightly agitated or unnerved, which needs to be signalled by the rider.

The law states a car must ensure ‘there is no reasonable likelihood that the noise of the motor, or the movement of the vehicle, will aggravate the restiveness of the horse.’ 

Drivers must give way or face fines if spotted by police.

Other weird laws include windows being wound down by a minimum of 5 centimetres in Victoria and Queensland.

Illegal use of your horn, which includes anything but in the case of an accident, can result in a $66 fine in Queensland, or even loss of points and license in other states. 

If you leave a bike rack bolted to the back of your car in Victoria but no bikes are on it, you can be fined. 

Cars on the Silver City Highway in NSW should always be on the look out for planes, as the road can be used at any time as a runway for the Royal Flying Doctor.

One of the strangest in Australia’s history, that was finally changed in 1980, was Victorian taxi drivers were required to carry a bale of hay in their boot. The rule was around due to horses being the main form of transport in the mid 20th century.    

Ex-BBC newsreader ‘violated’ by frisk at Heathrow

Former BBC newsreader Jan Leeming has revealed how she was left ‘nauseated’ by an ‘intimate frisk’ at Heathrow.

Writing on her blog, the 75-year-old, left, said she felt ‘violated’ by the recent search by a female airport security officer. ‘I had kept on a rather heavy silver necklace and it set off the security – fine.

‘So far so good. But the woman who frisked me was more than intrusive. Instead of the pat-down one usually receives, I had my whole body “rubbed” and she even put her hand down the back of my trousers.’ 

She added: ‘The hand down the trousers was possibly because of my HRT [hormone replacement therapy] patch but I found the whole experience nauseating – however it has not “ruined my life”.’ 

In the same posting – entitled ‘sexual harassment’ – Ms Leeming also revealed how she was ‘goosed’ by a stranger on an escalator at St Pancras Station in London last year. 

She said some recent high-profile allegations of sexual harassment were ‘clouding the real, sickening, and appalling cases of rape and abuse’.

Ms Leeming, who recently starred in Channel 4’s Celebrity First Dates, said she had experienced a number of inappropriate sexual advances at work but none had affected her life adversely.

Heathrow said it regretted that her security screening ‘may have fallen short’ of its expected standards.

Ms Leeming began her career in the early 1970s as an actress and TV host in Australia and New Zealand, before returning to Britain.

She presented the BBC show Pebble Mill At One between 1974 and 1979 and then became a newsreader throughout the 1980s.

In 1982, she hosted the Eurovision Song Contest.

She wound down her TV career in the 1990s but made odd appearances now and then.

Writing on her blog, the 75-year-old, left, said she felt ‘violated’ by the recent search by a female airport security officer. ‘I had kept on a rather heavy silver necklace and it set off the security – fine

Her big TV comeback was in 2006, when she went on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

In 2010, she took part in Come Dine With Me Celebrity Special on Channel 4, before trying out life in India for the BBC’s The Real Marigold Hotel in 2016.

This year she has been looking for love on Celebrity First Dates to raise awareness for Stand Up To Cancer. 

Jose Aldo beaten by Max Holloway in the third round

Max Holloway successfully defended his featherweight title for the first time with a third round knockout over Jose Aldo on Saturday night at UFC 218 at Detroit’s Little Ceasars Arena.

Holloway initially claimed the title over Aldo in December with another third round knockout.

Aldo took the opening round, beating Holloway to the punch from bell to bell.

Although Holloway had more success in the second round, Aldo managed to significantly damage the champion’s lead leg with kicks.

Visibly fading going into the third, Aldo continued to launch himself into the exchanges despite Holloway tagging him liberally. 

The Brazilian eventually forced the action to the ground, but the Hawaiian piled on the pressure until the referee stopped the action.

Holloway insisted that forcing Aldo into deep waters was his game plan in the lead up to the fight.

‘I knew he was tired already,’ said Holloway in his post-fight interview.

‘My trainer said let’s take him into deep water, he can’t swim there and then I’m gonna drown him. That’s exactly what I did.’

Francis Ngannou declared his intentions for Stipe Miocic’s heavyweight title with a spectacular knockout over perennial title contender and former K-1 champion, Alistair Overeem.

Overeem showed little caution as he launched into a lunging overhand right to open the action.

When the Dutch legend threw a right hand Ngannou countered with a left hook that rendered Overeem unconscious on connecting, buckling him to the canvas where a right fist landed before the fight was stopped.

Speaking after the fight, Ngannou claimed that UFC president Dana White had told him he would secure a title shot with a win in the co-main event.

‘Dana White said the winner would get a title shot so I think I got it,’ said Ngannou in his post-fight interview.

Henry Cejudo cemented his place as number one contender in the flyweight division with a one-sided win over Sergio Pettis.

Pettis was riding a four-fight win streak coming into the contest and as one of the only flyweight contenders who has yet to face champion Demetrious Johnson, he had a lot to gain from having his hand raised.

Cejudo’s bulky figure proved too imposing for Pettis to damage over the three rounds as he threw out his jab and looked to score from the outside. 

The Olympic gold medalist dictated the pace of the fight and made Pettis fight on his terms, which led him to an easy win after 15 minutes of action.

Eddie Alvarez scored a dramatic third round knockout over Justin Gaethje in a fight for the ages.

Unbeaten Gaethje is famed for walking down his opponents and demanding to trade leather, but it was Alvarez who was marching down the former WSOF for the best part of the contest.

As Gaethje chewed up the lead leg of Alvarez with his signature leg kicks, ‘The Underground King’ made investments to the body, which clearly paid off as the fight wore on.

Just when it seemed both men would hear the final bell, Alvarez landed a flush knee to the head of the Trevor Whitman product, dropping him to the canvas before Herb Dean stepped in to stop the action.

Tecia Torres announced herself in the strawweight title conversation with a unanimous decision victory over striking supremo, Michelle Wasterson.

‘The Tony Tornado’ put on a boxing clinic in the first round, and although Waterson controlled top position for the majority of the second stanza, she appeared to make no effort to finish the contest. 

Torres regained momentum in the third, winning the exchanges with her sharper pugilistic skills to claim the nod on all three judges’ scorecards.

Earlier in the night, Yancy Medeiros took a third round victory over Alex Oliveira in another ‘Fight of the Year’ contender. 

The Hawaiian showcased his granite chin on multiple occasions before finishing the fight will elbows in the dying embers of the contest.

Milo Yiannopoulos pictured wearing thick fur coat in Perth

Right-wing firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos has been pictured wearing a thick fur coat in 34C heat as he heads out shopping in Perth.

The self-described provocateur touched down in Perth on Saturday, the second leg of his Troll Academy Tour. 

Mr Yiannopoulas, 33, has come under fire from various community groups for offending Muslims and gay people, despite being gay himself, since his tour of Australia began on Friday.

Stepping out in a thick fur jacket on Sunday, Mr Yiannopoulas appeared not bothered his choice of clothing might continue to offend various groups in the community.

Taking to his Facebook on Sunday, Mr Yiannopoulas told his two and a half million followers he was ‘keeping it low-key’. 

His loyal followers praised him for his bold choices.

‘I can’t help but admire you and your willingness to cause controversy for the better cause of humanity,’ one man said. 

While some took issue with his fur coat, hoping it was ‘faux fur’, others were more taken aback he wore the jacket in Perth’s 34C heat. 

‘You must be sweltering in that fur in the Perth heat, darling!’ one woman said. 

‘That fur is just for show Milo, it’s bloody hot today!’ another said. 

Just three days into Mr Yiannopoulas’ Australian tour, the details of his altra-extravagant life-style and upbringing have surfaced.

Mr Yiannopoulos insisted he was a self made man, despite growing up with a ‘mafioso’ father and living between houses all around the world.

He was born Milo Hanrahan and raised in Kent, England to Greek and Jewish parents.

His family had a chalet in the Austrian Alps and for his fifth birthday he got a pony. It was a lifestyle any child would be in envy of – but that’s nothing compared to today.

Now known as Milo Yiannopoulos, the controversy king wears labels like Versace and Gucci, has houses around the world, stays in fancy hotels and only drinks expensive champagne. Put simply, he’s living life like a rockstar.

And after flaunting the best of his expensive wardrobe during his visit to Sydney this week, Yiannopoulos told Daily Mail Australia he was offended by estimates he’s worth just AUD$5.3 million.

‘Growing up we had a chalet in Australia, a couple of different house and my dad had a few Porsches,’ Yiannopoulos recalled.

‘I got a pony for my fifth birthday, I could never work out why we lived in nice houses. I didn’t know what my dad did but essentially I was your typical Greek Mafioso child.

‘But professionally speaking I’m pretty much self-made. My career in London took off pretty quick and I’ve always had a taste for nice things, so I knew I had to work hard.’

Starting as the tech writer for the Telegraph, he went on to create his own magazine The Kernel and spent time at Breitbart News, before his role as right-wing firebrand.

While on the surface he seems to be permanently stirring the pot, behind the scenes he lives the high life. 

Last year he married his partner John at the Four Seasons in Hawaii in an extravagant wedding ceremony that he for the first time revealed cost AUD$460,000.

There’s multiple houses in the United States and two in London, AUD$330,000 cars and a wardrobe supermodels would be jealous of.

And most of it was on show this week during his trip to Australia, as Yiannopoulos hit out at Muslims and ‘lefties’ while wearing his designer clothes and bespoke jewellery.

‘I was wearing a Dolce and Gabbana jacket, the sunglasses are Louis Vuitton, custom made 50 karat gold jewellery from New York, jeans from Balmain and Tiffany earrings worth AUD$40,000,’ he said.

‘I guess at any time I’m probably wearing AUD$200,000 of stuff – if people came and cut off my hands they’d be able to buy a house.’

Online estimates list Yiannopoulos’ worth as being close to AUD$5.3 million, claims he says are ‘insulting’.

‘I got a AUD$1.3 million signing bonus from Apple last year and my first purchase was a gold chrome Tesla for my husband which cost AUD$330,000,’ he revealed.

‘It’s the only gold chrome model in the world. They didn’t even have gold on the drop down box to choose from.

‘I’m basically like a cross between a Russian oligarch’s wife and a Chinese tourist, lots of gold and plenty of Louis Vuitton.

‘A couple of generations back my family had nothing, as often happens with people who come into money, now we’re showing off heavily.’

But while wasn’t afraid to splurge on a vehicle for his now husband John, he claimed it has been close to a decade since he himself has got behind the wheel.

‘I haven’t driven for 10 years, there’s normally an Escalade waiting out the front – I’m a bit like Hilary Clinton I guess,’ Yiannopoulos said with a laugh.

Creating headlines since the moment he stepped out of business class and onto the tarmac, the full-time mischief maker said his tour of Australia had been a success.

Just minutes after chatting with Daily Mail Australia on Friday he was back in the air, jetting off to the first leg of his speaking tour in Adelaide.

Apricot & pistachio stuffing balls

Weekend Reporters

Follow the Bake Off judge’s foolproof guide to serving up the most fabulous festive lunch

These  stuffing balls are an essential addition to any Christmas dinner 

These  stuffing balls are an essential addition to any Christmas dinner 

These stuffing balls are an essential addition to any Christmas dinner 

Here is an alternative stuffing which can be served with your turkey or prepared in advance and frozen to serve with other roast meats. It’s delicious with ham. Thaw at room temperature before rolling in oil and baking. 

Makes approx 18 stuffing balls 

  • 1 medium onion, chopped 
  • 4tbsp oil 
  • 450g (1lb) pork sausage meat or minced pork 
  • 2tsp chopped sage 
  • 55g (2oz) pistachio nuts, chopped 
  • 55g (2oz) dried apricots, sliced 
  • ½tsp salt 
  • ½tsp coarsely ground black pepper 
  • 1 egg 
  • 2tbsp white breadcrumbs 
  • A handful of bay leaves, optional 

Prue’s tip 

Wet your hands slightly when making your stuffing balls – it will help to prevent the mixture from sticking. 

In a frying pan, cook the onion in 1tbsp of the oil until soft. Leave to cool. Place the meat, sage, nuts, apricots, salt, pepper, egg, breadcrumbs and 1tbsp oil in a large bowl and add the onion mixture. 

Using your hands, mix and shape into golfball-sized balls. Place the remaining oil in a roasting tin and roll the stuffing balls in the oil to coat. 

When your turkey has 30 minutes of cooking time to go, put the balls in the oven on the shelf under it and cook until brown (or if your turkey is nicely browned, place the balls on the shelf above and cook for just 20 minutes). Serve with the bay leaves, if using.

Trump suggests he may be flexible on corporate tax rates

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump has suggested that he may be willing to negotiate changes to a significant portion of the tax overhaul, the corporate tax rate. And that is injecting an element of uncertainty into the tax plan only hours after it cleared the Senate.

Trump told reporters at the White House before a trip to New York City on Saturday that he would consider setting the corporate tax rate at 22 percent, compared to a 20 percent rate that he has pushed for with House and Senate Republicans during the fall.

The president spoke after the Senate approved the most sweeping changes to the tax system in three decades and help Trump deliver the first major legislative win of his presidency.

Oilers take big lead, hold on for 7-5 win over Flames

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) – After taking a big lead early in the third period, Edmonton had to hold off a furious rally by the Calgary Flames.

Patrick Maroon scored to give the Oilers a five-goal advantage in the opening minutes of the final period, and they held on to beat the Flames 7-5 on Saturday night.

Jesse Puljujarvi had two goals in the first period, and Jujhar Khaira, Mark Letestu, Milan Lucic and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins also scored for Edmonton, which led 6-1 after Maroon’s goal 1:29 into the third.

Sam Bennett scored twice, and Micheal Ferland and Johnny Gaudreau once each to pull the Flames to 6-5 with 7:40 remaining.

“The first five minutes we were on them and got pucks in and got the forecheck and then they got one, they got two, they got three, they got four,” Maroon said. “My heart skipped a beat there for a second on the fifth goal.”

Nugent-Hopkins sealed the Oilers’ sixth straight win against the Flames with just more than a minute left.

“It’s been a good streak right now. We want to keep that rolling,” Nugent-Hopkins said. “Obviously a divisional team and a natural rivalry with the Alberta thing. We take pride in these games and we come out really hard.”

Mikael Frolik had a short-handed goal in the first for Calgary.

Laurent Brossoit made 29 saves for Edmonton, including a blocker save on Gaudreau’s attempt to tie it on a 2-on-1 break. The Flames also failed to capitalize on a power play with six minutes left.

“Our resilience right now is really good. Other than tonight, we’ve been down in every game for the past three and the way we fought back has been a really good sign for us. It’s something we did really well last year,” Nugent-Hopkins said.

Mike Smith stopped 22 shots for Calgary through two periods before giving way to David Rittich, who stopped four of the six shots he faced in the third.

The 19-year-old Puljujarvi opened the scoring 10:29 into the first when the puck caromed to him off the end boards after Drake Caggiula missed the net on his slap shot.

Four minutes later, Eric Gryba’s shot went through the holder of Mark Giordano’s skate then changed directions again off Puljujarvi’s leg before trickling through Smith’s pads to make it 2-0.

“I’ve never seen it before in this league or any league that I’ve been in. It goes through the skate blade,” Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan said. “We’ve got to deal with that better. There are bounces that are going to happen. We have to react to those things better.”

Puljujarvi spent the first five weeks of the season in the AHL before being called up from Bakersfield on Nov. 10. He had been a healthy scratch in back-to-back games before playing Thursday against Toronto and leading the team with seven shots.

It looked like the Flames were on the verge of getting back into the game when Mikael Backlund set up Frolik with 3:39 left in the first. However, just 1:23 later, Khaira converted Kris Russell’s pass to restore the Oilers’ two-goal lead.

“We started the game too hesitant,” Bennett said. “We were just dipping our toes in the water and we didn’t go after it.”

Edmonton surged in front 4-1 at 3:40 of the second when Letestu scored on a short-handed breakaway. It was the first of three second period breakaways for the Oilers. While Smith stopped the other two, the Oilers extended their lead to 5-1 on Lucic’s deflection with 22 seconds remaining in the middle period.

Rittich’s appearance didn’t start well as a miscommunication behind the net resulted in an easy wraparound goal for Maroon that proved to be the winner.

NOTES: Edmonton has outscored Calgary 31-16 during its winning streak in the series. … Oilers coach Todd McLellan got his 400th NHL win, becoming the 38th to reach that milestone. … Mike Cammalleri returned to the Oilers’ lineup after being a healthy scratch on Thursday. Anton Slepyshev sat out. … Calgary RW Troy Brouwer has gone 32 games without a goal, dating back to March 27. … Edmonton entered the game first in the NHL with 749 hits and had nine against the Flames, who had 14.

Life-size replica of Keith Urban unveiled in Nashville

He’s the country music crooner who’s won four Grammy Awards and sold tens of millions of albums.

And Keith Urban has cemented his status as a superstar of the genre after his own wax replica arrived at Madam Tussaud’s in Nashville, Tennessee.

The life size figure was unveiled at the museum on Friday, where it now stands alongside wax works of music icons including Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Taylor Swift.

The imitation shows Keith brandishing his electric guitar in a sideways fashion as he often does during real-life performances.

Clad in the singer’s signature uniform of skinny black jeans and a black Harley Davidson t-shirt, the wax work perfectly mimics the 50-year-old’s sense of dress.

However it’s the physical features that bear the most resemblance to the Australian stud, with his trademark golden locks and intricate bicep tattooed perfectly replicated.

The figure was previously a tourist attraction at the Madam Tussaud’s museum in Orlando, but it is now in closer proximity to the real Keith, who resides with wife Nicole Kidman in the country music capital.

However, it isn’t the first life size imitation of the crooner that has been created.

Madam Tussaud’s in Sydney also features a replica of the handsome star, standing near a wax work of ladylove Nicole.

The Oscar-winning redhead similarly has another figurine at another of the franchise’s locations.

The fact that both Nicole and Keith have been replicated several times speaks to their superstar status and their prominent place in popular culture.

The pair’s professional lives are currently at an all-time high with Keith recently winning three American Music Awards, while Nicole scooped an Emmy for her role in the blockbuster miniseries Big Little Lies.
