Lee Radziwill laid to rest in Manhattan

Lee Radziwill laid to rest in Manhattan

Lee Radziwill, the iconic New York socialite and younger sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis who died earlier this month at the age of 85, was laid to rest in New York on Monday surrounded by famous friends and family members.

Top names in fashion, including designers Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs and Tory Burch, as well as famed editor André Leon Talley, were among the mourners who gathered at the Church of St. Thomas More on the Upper East Side. Director Sofia Coppola, Radziwill’s daughter-in-law Carole Radzwill — a “Real Housewives of New York City” star who was married to Lee’s late son Anthony Radziwill — and niece Caroline Kennedy also attended the service.

A friend of Radziwill’s previously told Page Six that the proceedings were expected to be subdued: “It’s a funeral service, not a memorial. They won’t be doing anything else as she was so private and elegant.” Photographers captured large baskets of flowers being delivered to the church.

Her death “came as a shock,” as a friend previously described it to Page Six. “[Radziwill] was so strong and resilient for so long. We all just hoped she would be with us forever,” the friend said. “She had some health setbacks recently, including hip issues, that slowed her down slightly, but she was still as sharp as a tack.”

R. Kelly charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse

R. Kelly has been charged with criminal sex abuse in Chicago, according to new reports.

The embattled R&B star was hit with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sex abuse in Cook County on Friday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, citing records.

TMZ reported that a grand jury convened a week ago to investigate a sex tape that allegedly showed Kelly assaulting a 14-year-old girl.

The tape was turned over to authorities by lawyer Michael Avenatti.

Two women testified for the grand jury over the past week, including one who provided physical evidence, the celebrity gossip site reported.

They were among as many as a dozen accusers to testify, the site said.

Sources told the Sun-Times that Cook County prosecutors were appearing before a judge Friday afternoon to sign off on an arrest warrant for Kelly.

The charges come weeks after the Lifetime documentary series “Surviving R. Kelly” showcased old sexual misconduct accusations against the 52-year-old singer.

Meghan Markle attempted to keep a low profile as she stepped out in New York City on Monday evening, looking chic, but inconspicuous, in a long black overcoat and a gray newsboy cap pulled down over her dark brown hair.

The 37-year-old royal, who returned to the Big Apple over the weekend in order to spend some quality time with her girlfriends before the arrival of her first child this spring, was seen being escorted by a royal protection officer into an SUV parked that was parked on a city street.

Progressive lawmakers cheer Amazon’s HQ2 reversal

Progressive lawmakers cheer Amazon’s HQ2 reversal

I was SHOCKED to see Amazon HQ2 pull out of their deal with NYC. But
opponents of Amazon’s plan to come to Queens were popping the champagne corks Thursday after the company made it’s announcement.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called the decision a victory over “corporate greed” and over the retail giant’s billionaire founder, Jeff Bezos.

“Anything is possible,” the Bronx/Queens Democrat tweeted. “Today was a day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world.”

She later incorrectly claimed the $3 billion in subsidies that would have gone to Amazon could be used to hire teachers, fix the subway and “put a lot of people to work.”

But there is no $3?billion pot of money — most of it would have been in the form of future tax breaks.

Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who led the grilling of Amazon officials at two hearings, decried “vulture capitalism” and took a dig at the helicopter pad the company planned to build at its Long Island City site.

“I hope this is the start of a conversation about vulture capitalism and where our tax dollars are best spent,” he said.

“I know I’d choose mass transit over helipads any day,” he added.

His predecessor, Melissa Mark-Viverito, blasted both Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio.

“[This was] pushed through by two men who think community engagement is a joke,” said the former speaker, who is running for public advocate.

No word yet on how they’ll move forward on choosing another city to plant roots. (please Philly)
