Louis Tomlinson’s baby mama Briana Jungwirth sparks dating rumours as she hangs out at Brody Jenner’s house in LA – The Sun

LOUIS Tomlinson’s ex Briana Jungwirth has sparked rumours she's dating Brody Jenner as she hangs out his house in Los Angeles.

Briana – who shares her four-year-old son Freddie Reign Tomlinson with the One Direction singer – looks to have moved on with Caitlyn Jenner's son.

Despite not going public with the relationship, 28-year-old Briana and Brody, 36, set tongues wagging when they uploaded identical videos and snaps on Instagram.

They both looked to be enjoying a day on the beach as they soaked up the sun and watched the waves wash in.

The rumoured couple also shared content of a golf buggy on Brody's huge property.

And they seemed to be enjoying the fresh outdoors and sunny weather – both holding their phones up to the sky to take in the views.

They ended their picture perfect day with a game of giant Jenga in the garden.

The Sun Online has reached out to Briana and Brody's reps.

Briana hooked up with singer Louis in a brief romance in May 2015 after being introduced by mutual friends.

Their relationship began after Louis and long-term lover Eleanor Calder had split.

The brunette, who was working as a stylist when she met Louis, gave birth to their son, Freddie Reign, in January 2016.

She lives in Los Angeles with the youngster and her family close-by to help with childcare duties.

The Sun Online exclusively revealed she and her family had nicknamed Freddie a "miracle baby" and a "gift from God."

Meanwhile Brody, who also lives in LA, is part of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.

He split from his long-term partner Kaitlynn Carter last year when she left him for singer Miley Cyrus.

Mum uses fabric softener to brighten up grubby door she had 'forgotten was white' in amazing cleaning hack

GIVING your doors a good clean can often fall to the bottom of the list – until it seems to be too late.

However, a mum has revealed how she used none other than fabric softener to get her grubby ones looking unrecognisable.

In a post on Facebook group 'Mums Who Clean', the Australian woman admitted she hadn't giving her doors a thorough scrubbing for years.

The social media user wrote that they "hadn't [been] cleaned properly since painting the house six years ago".

But by adding fabric softener to a bucket and using a stiff brush, she was able to get them back to their former state.

She explained: "Who would have guessed these doors are actually white. I used fabric softener, a stiff brush and a bit of water in a bucket.

"Scrub like mad, wipe down with damp cloth and repeat."

The mum accompanied the explanation with amazing before and after photos of the door she had been able to transform with the common laundry product.

She added that the reason they had got particularly dirty was due to living in a mining town with dust everywhere.

Another mum in the group also revealed how she used fabric softener to clean her walls.

Who would have guessed these doors are actually white…

The woman explained that she mixed a cap of it with a bucket of warm water to create an effective solution.

She wrote: "Have been reading lots [about] people cleaning their walls with fabric softener to make them smell nice. I gave it a go, and I’m hooked.

"Walls look amazing and it smells so good – every room is like walking through a field of roses. Can’t recommend it enough."

A third woman said she uses shaving foam to clean her toilet and get rid of the smell of urine, adding that she leaves it to soak for 30 minutes before wiping it away with a mop.

What the Stars of Bravo's NYC Prep Are Up to Now

Remember “the top half the one percent”?

At the height of Gossip Girl‘s popularity, Bravo decided to introduce viewers to the real teenagers of the Upper East Side prep schools, with NYC Prep debuting in June 2009. Think an east coast version of Laguna Beach, but with even more money and expensive sushi dinners and less bikinis and theme parties.

During the shortlived series’ one season, the six young stars—Peter Cary “PC” Peterson, Jessie Leavitt, Kelli Tomashoff, Sebastian Oppenheim, Camille Hughes and Taylor DiGiovanni—dined and dated, spent massive amounts of money and sweated SAT scores, with the New York Post dubbing them “New York’s rich and bratty” and “snotty hotties.”

Over 10 years later, the forgotten relic of reality TV past is getting its chance to shine as viewers couldn’t resist returning to NYC Prep when Bravo aired the entire first season recently.

And after binge-watching the exploits of the over-privileged and overdramatic high school students, we couldn’t resist checking back in on PC, Jessie and the rest of the gang to see what they are up to now. 

So which star ended up working as a P.A. on another Bravo show? And who had a president’s daughters as the flower girl at their wedding? 

Find out what the cast of NYC Prep is up to now…

Peter Cary "PC" Peterson

The grandson of billionaire and former US Secretary of Commerce Pete Peterson, the wannabe Chuck Bass was the breakout star of NYC Prep as he had a penchant for snobby one-liners, scarves and hitting on girls. 

Back when the show was premiering, PC told The New York Post, “I did reality TV because I want to be an actor — it seemed like good practice. This isn’t reality—it’s a docudrama—you can’t say ‘staged,’ but they wanted me to be like Sybil and have different personalities all the time.”

Alas, PC didn’t pursue a career in acting, but made headlines in January 2018 after marrying his best friend Esme Brown, with her Instagram caption about their impromptu Las Vegas nuptials raising eyebrows.

“Unconventional, yet unconditional. Married to my best friend. My soulmate. The person who never turned his back on me and vice versa. We have one life. Free yourself!” she wrote. “P.S. We have never had sex. It’s pure friendship.”

Some of the attendees included Tiffany Trump, who served as flower girl, EJ Johnson and Abigail Breslin.

Now based in NYC and Byron Bay, per Instagram, PC is serving as a photographer, according to his website.

Jessie Leavitt

After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.), the former Queen Bee of the UES works as the east coast visual merchandiser for a “luxury brand.”

Jessie married investment analyst Jason Brown in June 2019, with her brother, Rabbi Noah Leavitt, officiating the Long Island nuptials (We wonder if guests of guests were allowed to bring guests?) and the couple lives in New York City.

Sebastian Oppenheim

While his career in front of the cameras was short-lived, the well-coiffed sophomore playboy Sebastian (“I hook up with two or three girls a night…maybe more.”) actually remained in the Bravo family behind-the-scenes for a bit, working as a production assistant for Watch What Happens Live in the summer of 2013 while attending the College of Charleston.

In September 2019, Sebastian married TV host Skyler Bouchard, who decided to marathon her husband’s reality TV series while social distancing.

A licensed real estate agent, Sebastian’s currently working as the regional director for June Homes, a housing brand. And yes, he cut his very flippable hair.

Back in 2015, Sebastian told Bravo’s the Daily Dish he hadn’t kept in touch with any of his former co-stars, saying, “At this point, we’ve all grown up and gone our separate ways as is often the case in big-city life, but I wish them the best of luck.”

Camille Isobel Hughes

“I don’t want to apologize for having money, it’s good.”

Camille was NYC Prep‘s IRL Blair Waldorf as she was super smart and super serious about her future, setting her sights on getting into an Ivy League school. But Camille ended up transferring prep schools in her senior year due to her time on the short-lived reality show and didn’t get into Harvard, her dream school.

After graduating from William & Mary, a public Ivy, Camille decided to leave the Big Apple and moved to the west coast to work for Arbonne, the vegan wellness brand.

“It’s like @LaurenConrad and I are switching places #lagunabeach#nycprep,” Camille jokingly tweeted of her bi-coastal switch in 2014.

Camille still works for Arbonne as the senior manage brand and product development and has been in a long-term relationship for over six years.

Kelli Brooke Tomashoff

The junior had a pretty wild home life as she and her brother lived alone in an NYC apartment while their parents lived in the Hamptons and occasionally checked in.

After her brief stint as a reality star came to a close, Kelli attempted a career in music, releasing a single in 2011 called “Gave Up on Love.”

After graduating from the New School, Kelli worked as a publicity director at Arista Records.

Taylor DiGiovanni

Taylor caused quite the stir when she entered the teen social scene because she was—gasp!—a public school student.

After NYC Prep‘s one season aired, Taylor retreated from the public eye completely and has a private Instagram account.

Coronavirus forces truce in breakfast, chicken sandwich wars

Arby’s to add crispy fish, fish-and-cheddar sandwiches to menu

Arby’s is launching new fish options to rival McDonald’s’ Filet-O-Fish just ahead of Lent.

Since the coronavirus pandemic has gotten worse in the United States, it looks as though fast- food Twitter has reached a truce in its lighthearted battle for superiority. There has been a noticeable shift in fast-food companies' marketing strategies in light of the pandemic. If you've looked at any of their feeds recently, you've seen they have moved away from feuding to taking care of more pressing matters: customer complaints.

It's crazy to believe that just a month ago, fast-food chains were humorously roasting each other on social media. For instance, Wendy's announced in a tweet on March 2 that it would start selling breakfast.

The same day as the announcement, competitor Burger King engaged in the commonplace practice of taking shots at its rival, starting a "breakfast war."

But the gloves came off between the competitors long before the official announcement when Wendy's tweeted a picture of the Burger King mascot anxiously awaiting a Wendy's breakfast.


A feud between the two competitors isn't new. Back in February, Wendy's went after Burger King when it announced it was testing a sandwich containing nothing but french fries.

"When literally anything would be better on a bun than their beef," Wendy's tweeted.

Wendy's didn't stop there, however, adding in a reply that Burger King's whole restaurant is a joke.


Burger King and Wendy's aren't the only ones that trade jabs at each other. Fast-food chains Chick-fil-A and Popeye's made headlines last summer when they unleashed the famous chicken sandwich war that consumed Twitter users and forced fans of the food chains to draw lines in the sand over which chicken sandwich was superior.


But despite the day-to-day problems every restaurant is going through, the coronavirus has brought new challenges to the industry. According to the National Restaurant Association, the restaurant industry has lost more than 3 million jobs and $25 billion in sales since March 1 due to the coronavirus, and roughly 50 percent of restaurant operators anticipate having to lay off more people in April.

For the week ending March 22, Wendy's same-restaurant sales were down 20 percent despite the breakfast launch driving sales up 15 percent in its first week and 2.8 percent quarter-to-date.


While some find the bickering on Twitter between the brands amusing, Burger King and Popeye's parent Restaurant Brand International's Global Chief Marketing Officer Fernando Machado said it's a better marketing strategy to tone down the infighting and have brands "help people with concrete action" during the crisis.

"It’s not the time to be getting into feuds with other brands," Machado said. "Right now, it’s important that we work together to help support our fans and our communities through this difficult time.”

In order to give back, Burger King is giving away kids meals through its mobile app for parents having to find meals for their kids. In the first week of the program, Burger King donated more than 500,000 meals. Burger King also donated 1 million yuan ($140,997.98) in China to the Red Cross to support frontline medical staff and has been providing free meal delivery to hospitals and to on-duty police officers. In Italy, the restaurant chain has donated meals to local hospitals and 8 tons of food to the Red Cross.

Popeye's is supporting the nonprofit organization No Kid Hungry by matching donations of $1 for every customer who donates through the Popeye's app.

In a press release on March 26, Wendy's President and CEO Todd Penegor called the coronavirus "an unprecedented time" and said Wendy's is "focused on the actions where we can make a positive difference". As a result, the company announced it would make changes to their marketing plan as well.

"The company is working to adjust its marketing plan as a system to reflect the dynamic and changing conditions of the marketplace," Penegor said. "Given the very strong early performance of breakfast driven through our world-class social and digital communications, the Company intends to remove its incremental breakfast marketing spend investment in 2020 and support our franchise system in other ways. The Company and its franchisees remain fully committed to breakfast and as part of this plan we will continue to apply media pressure to this daypart as we believe it will be beneficial to both breakfast and rest of day sales."

Additional measures Wendy's has taken against the coronavirus include closing its dining rooms and encouraging using drive-thru and delivery service, reinforcing "strict food safety procedures, personal hygiene standards, handwashing requirements and sanitation protocols through additional retraining and communications," increasing daily restaurant deep-cleaning procedures, implementing travel restrictions for company employees and moving most of its employees to a remote work arrangement.

Chick-Fil-A has also taken measures to protect employees and customers, including deploying outdoor handwashing stations that will be added to all drive-thru and in-line curbside locations chainwide by April 11; having team members wear face protection while working in the restaurant; providing Purell wipes to team members to regularly sanitize their hands in addition to handwashing, and asking guests using credit/debit for payment to swipe their own cards and encourage guests to utilize mobile ordering and mobile payment through the Chick-fil-A app. It is also giving back to families impacted by the virus through its Family Meals program.


While the focus on the virus doesn't necessarily mean the war is over, fast-food brands have definitely reached a truce, at least for the time being.

Ticker Security Last Change Change %
WEN THE WENDY’S COMPANY 14.44 +1.38 +10.57%

Restaurant Brands International closed at $37.79 per share, up more than 13 percent, and Wendy's closed at $14.44 per share, up more than 10 percent, at the end of Monday's trading session.
