“My subscribers know that I’m super creative when it comes to my personal style,” said Lauren Riihimaki. “So when we shot the Mudd spring campaign, I loved that we were able to have fun mixing and matching different prints, colors and textures – like their frayed denim or off-the-shoulder romper. I can’t wait to show subscribers some of my favorite spring pieces and to share what’s to come on this exciting fashion journey,” Lauren continued.

Ric Flair® Will Not Attend Playoff Game in Carolina

Ric Flair® Will Not Attend Playoff Game in Carolina

CHARLOTTE, NC – (January 9, 2014) He’s always been the “dirtiest player in the game” – and some things never change.

A long time Carolina Panthers fan, RicFlair created quite the stir when WWE sent him to Green Bay, WI January 5th to give the San Francisco 49ers an unexpected locker room pep talk.  WWE is hosting WrestleMania XXXI in SanFrancisco in 2015. Now many are asking: Will Flair attend the January 12th playoff game in Carolina as they host San Francisco? And if so, which team will he support?

“When the 49ers reached out and WWE asked Ric to jet up there, of course he said yes,” says Melinda Morris Zanoni, Flair’s agent at Legacy Talent and Entertainment, “and he’s friends with a bunch of the 49ers just like he is with the Panthers, Packers, and many other NFL players. But no, Ric does not intend on attending the Panthers vs. 49ers game this weekend.” “What can I say? I’ve always been a very good heel!” added Flair. The 49er pep talk, which instantly went viral, caused many Carolina fans to voice their feelings of anger and betrayal on social media – some even offering death threats to Flair. “We know fans are passionate about their teams, but some of the choice language we have been receiving is scaring off our interns,” says Melinda.
