Celine Dion Gets Emotional About Caring for Husband Battling Cancer

ABC(LAS VEGAS) -- Celine Dion will soon return to the Las Vegas stage after taking a year off to care for her manager and husband, René Angélil, but her road back has not been easy. Dion, 46, revealed in an interview with ABC News’ Deborah Roberts that Angélil, 73, has to be fed by a feeding tube because of his throat cancer. “He can’t eat so I feed him,” Dion told Roberts during the interview in Las Vegas, which Angélil attended. “He’s got a feeding tube. I have to feed him three times a day.” Dion and Angélil have been married since 1994, after meeting 14 years prior. They have three sons together, whom Dion has walked through their father’s cancer battle. Today, "we are taking life one day at a time," she told ABC News. "[But] we are choosing to live." Dion took an indefinite leave from the stage last year to care for Angélil after he was diagnosed with cancer for a second time. The singer will resume her residency at Caesars Palace Las Vegas in late August with a new act, according to her rep.

Find out how the couple’s children are handling Angélil’s cancer, as well as why the singer is bringing her show back to Las Vegas, all Wednesday on Good Morning America at 7 a.m. ET and Nightline at 12:35 a.m. ET.

Bethenny Frankel Admits Maybe She’s Too Thin

Bethenny Frankel Admits Maybe She’s Too Thin

Theo Wargo/E! Entertainment(NEW YORK) -- Bethenny Frankel admitted sometimes she might be too thin. On Monday's Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen brought up the time last summer when the Internet went crazy after Frankel squeezed into her daughter Bryn's pajamas. "It was a joke, just like putting on a mask," she said, adding it became "pajama gate." Frankel, 44, said she never got bothered by all the backlash. But Cohen said the social media moment spurred comments about how "thin you are." "There's always a dialogue about that -- and when you have a brand called Skinnygirl, you are looking for it," she said. Cohen then asked if Frankel thinks she is too thin. "Maybe," she said, adding that she doesn't give much thought to the issue. "Do I think I can be [too thin] sometimes? Yes," she added. "When I'm very tired and stressed out, people think I'm more thin. And it's always the times I feel like I'm really stressed out, because I get black circles and my face looks drawn in. But, maybe. I run around like a total maniac."

Iggy Azalea Says She Has Breast Implants

Iggy Azalea Says She Has Breast Implants

Image Group LA/ABC(NEW YORK) -- Iggy Azalea is opening up about past plastic surgery. The "Fancy" singer got breast implants recently, she told Vogue. "Four months ago, I got bigger boobs!" she told the magazine, when asked about her body. "I’d thought about it my entire life." Azalea, 24, told the magazine that, in some ways, her choice to go under the knife was practical. Now that she's had the procedure, she doesn't need to pad her stage costumes and she can wear different kinds of lingerie.

While she worried at first that her decision would negatively influence her young fans, she later changed her mind. "I decided I wasn't into secret-keeping," she said.

“Dancing with the Stars” Recap: Redfoo Is the First to Go

“Dancing with the Stars” Recap: Redfoo Is the First to Go

ABC/Craig Sjodin(LOS ANGELES) -- Redfoo of the "Party Rock Anthem" duo LMFAO was the first celebrity eliminated from season 20 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Monday night.The couple with the lowest combined total of judges’ scores and viewers’ votes from the previous week’s performances is eliminated.The judges were not impressed by Redfoo’s Cha Cha technique during his performance on the March 16 premiere -- although they did commend his showmanship.Redfoo and model Charlotte McKinney were tied for the bottom spot on the leaderboard after their respective season premiere performances.Ironically, Redfoo earned one of the highest scores Monday night for a Jive with partner Emma Slater.  There were loud boos from the audience when co-host Tom Bergeron announced that he would be going home.Redfoo appeared disappointed, but said he was happy he had the opportunity to dance. “I did my best. I think Emma is the best and, you know, I wanted to be there for her,” he said.Bergeron said the elimination underscored the importance of viewer participation. “You’ve got to vote, guys,” he said. “This is somebody who did a great job and because of viewer votes...and a tenth of a percent, a tenth of a percent.”The theme for the second show was #MyJamMonday. The stars danced to their favorite jams.

Here’s a rundown of the performances:Chris Soules: The four judges encouraged the star of The Bachelor to work harder. Head judge Len Goodman said Soules’ jam with partner Witney Carson “got in a little bit of a pickle here and there,” although he commended him for doing “an okay job” with just four days to rehearse the routine. Julianne Hough said she thought the choreography was “intricate” for the second week, but said Soules was enthusiastic and entertaining. Bruno Tonioli pointed out that Soules’ posture was “much more erect” than it was in the previous week, and Carrie Ann Inaba added that, while Soules seemed “up for the challenge,” he needed to take a less-casual approach. Soules earned three 5s and a 6, for a total of 21 out of a possible 40 points.Suzanne Somers: The 68-year-old actress’ peppy Jive with partner Tony Dovolani won the judges over. “That was awesome!” Hough said, adding that Somers embodied what the competition was all about, which was improvement week after week. A pleased Tonioli called the routine “teasing but never sleazy,” and Inaba said she loved to see the spring in Somers’ step. Goodman said Somers’ routine was terrific, noting that she danced with “energy and verve.” Somers earned four 7s, for a total of 28 points.Robert Herjavec: The Shark Tank star earned praise for his Foxtrot with partner Kym Johnson. Inaba said she was impressed that Herjavec kept up with the “really challenging routine,” and said the couple made such a cute pair that it almost made her “a little nauseous.” Tonioli said Herjavec had “supreme selling power,” while Goodman saw Herjavec’s “style” and “panache.” Hough gave Herjavec pointers for improving his frame, telling him it was all in the attitude. He earned four 7s, for a total of 28 points.Charlotte McKinney: The judges liked the model’s playful, beach-themed Cha Cha. “You gave it to me. Honey, that was really good,” Inaba said, adding that McKinney needed to work more on the articulation of her feet. Goodman said the routine was fun and “better than last week,” and Hough said she believed McKinney had untapped potential. In a video before her performance, McKinney said she was bullied online for her figure, but after the routine Tonioli told her: “Darling, you’re gorgeous. If you’ve got it, flaunt it...be yourself. Be happy with it.” He also told her partner, Keo Motsepe, to help McKinney on how best to work with her body. McKinney earned two 6s and two 7s, for a total of 26 points.Michael Sam: The judges praised the football player’s confident Foxtrot with partner Peta Murgatroyd. Last week, Goodman called Sam’s footwork “atrocious.” On Monday, he commended the footwork and the routine. Hough said the routine was “like a Broadway performance, it was picture perfect, it was so beautiful.” Tonioli called the routine a timeless blend of Motown style and classic Foxtrot, adding: “for such a big bruiser, you were so light on your feet.” Inaba said she was truly impressed at Sam’s “transformation” from last week. “You are in the game, my friend!” she said. Sam earned four 7s, for a total of 28 points.Rumer Willis: The actress’s Cha Cha -- performed to “Rumour Has It” -- earned her a standing ovation from the ballroom audience and plaudits from the judges. “You’re pretty much a powerhouse,” Hough said, while urging Willis to relax her upper body and breathe a little bit. Tonioli said Willis had a “keen sense of purpose.” Inaba told Willis’ partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, that she loved the choreography. Added Goodman: “It’s no rumor, Rumer. You can dance.” She earned four 8s, for a total of 32 points.Redfoo: Last week, the judges were unhappy with Redfoo’s Cha Cha, but they were happy with the musician's high-energy Jive on Monday. “You went from running on empty to running on plenty,” Tonioli said. A thrilled Inaba said Redfoo “killed it!” Goodman said what the routine lacked in technique it made up for in energy, and Hough said it was “awesome.” Redfoo earned three 8s and a 7, for a total of 31 points.Willow Shields: The Hunger Games actress and partner Mark Ballas received rave reviews for their pop art-inspired Argentine tango. Goodman admired the maturity in Shields’ performance. Hough said Shields had intensity, and Inaba praised the actress’ “incredible lines.” Added Tonioli: “Your lines and shapes were incredible...you’re a potential winner.” Willow earned four eights for a total of 32 points.Noah Galloway: The U.S. Army veteran dedicated his samba to his girlfriend, who was away on military training, and the judges were impressed by Galloway’s strength, control and rhythm. Tonioli and Inaba said the routine was “hot,” with Inaba adding that she was impressed by how the double amputee had formed a whole new set of skills for the dance floor. Hough said Galloway’s musicality was “on point,” and Goodman added: “the rhythm in your hips put a smile on my face. You’re an ordinary guy but you do extraordinary things.” Galloway earned three 7s and a 6, for a total of 27 points. After he learned his score, his girlfriend surprised him by showing up and giving him a hug on the set. He beamed and hugged her, calling her unexpected appearance “amazing.”Nastia Liukin: The Olympian’s rumba was “so beautifully executed,” Julianne Hough said, while adding that she didn’t feel a connection between Liukin and her pro partner, Derek Hough, until the second half of the dance. Derek Hough and Julianne Hough are siblings. Tonioli called Liukin’s performance “marvelous motion,” while Inaba’s jaw dropped in amazement. “The quality of motion was spectacular,” she said. Goodman said the dance started off clean and crisp and then bloomed. Liukin earned two 9s and two 8s, for a total of 34 points.Riker Lynch: The Glee star and R5 band member’s Foxtrot with partner Allison Holker won him praise for his poise and his sleek appearance, a marked difference from his edgier look of last week. “I love your finishes. You put in tiny little details...but you maintain the style throughout. Good job,” Tonioli said. Inaba said Lynch’s performance was “so presentational,” adding that he was elegant but still himself. Goodman remarked on Lynch’s refined hair and dancing, and while he pointed out that Lynch’s hold could also be refined somewhat, he said he liked the performance. Hough called the routine “beautiful,” adding that Lynch (who is her cousin) had “such dynamic ability.” Lynch earned four 8s, for a total of 32 points.Patti LaBelle: Dancing with an injured knee to 50 Cent’s “In Da Club," LaBelle’s saucy Cha Cha with partner Artem Chigvintsev had both Inaba and Hough bowing to her in admiration. “That was so fun! I want to go to the club with you, too,” Hough said. LaBelle earned four 7s, for a total of 28 points.Here are Monday night’s scores:

Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough: 34 Riker Lynch and Allison Holker: 32 Rumer Willis and Valentin Chmerkovskiy: 32 Willow Shields and Mark Ballas: 32 Redfoo and Emma Slater: 31 (They were voted off) Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson: 28 Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev: 28 Suzanne Somers and Tony Dovolani: 28 Michael Sam and Peta Murgatroyd: 28 Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess: 27 Charlotte McKinney and Keo Motsepe: 26 Chris Soules and Witney Carson: 21

James Corden Debuts as Host of “The Late Late Show”

James Corden Debuts as Host of “The Late Late Show”

Art Streiber/CBS(LOS ANGELES) -- James Corden made his debut as the new host of CBS’ The Late Late Show Monday, taking over for Craig Ferguson, who left in December after a 10-year run.Corden's first guests were Tom Hanks and Mila Kunis. Corden eschewed the traditional talk show desk in favor of a simple chair opposite a couch that was shared by Hanks and Kunis.A highlight of the interview portion of the show came when Corden coaxed Kunis into addressing the rumor that she and Ashton Kutcher, her former That 70s Show co-star and the father of her five-month-old daughter Wyatt, tied the knot. Kunis and Kutcher confirmed their engagement last year, but have always avoided questions about their marital status."Did you get married?" Corden asked the Ted star, to which she answered, "I don't know, maybe." 

When Corden pressed and declared, "Either you're married or not," Kunis flashed a diamond ring on her left ring finger. Corden then declared, "Oh, they got married! They got married, everybody!"

As the audience erupted in applause, Hanks asked the band to play the "Wedding March." Still, reps for Kutcher and Kunis have not yet confirmed the news.The British comedian kicked off his show by introducing himself to his audience and the American public. He made a few jokes, which were followed by a star-studded pre-taped segment, which explained how he landed the gig.

In a nod to the film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Corden finds a golden ticket hidden inside a candy bar. He shows up at the studio backlot, where, in a parody of the Oscar-nominated movie Whiplash, former Tonight Show host Jay Leno trains him in the art of hosting a TV talk show.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Meryl Streep, Allison Janney, Billy Crystal, Katie Couric, Joel McHale and Shia LaBeouf also appeared in the segment.Another comedy bit featured Corden and Hanks frantically performing brief scenes from the actor’s film career, which resulted in Corden donning a wig to portray Meg Ryan several times.Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights on CBS.

Buena Vista(LOS ANGELES) — Joss Whedon, the writer-director of The Avengers and the hit's May 1 sequel Age of Ultron is officially handing over the director's duties on the third and fourth films in the Marvel Studios series.The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2 will be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the siblings behind the blockbuster sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and its about-to-shoot third installment, Captain America: Civil War.While Marvel is still mum, the THR story confirms an earlier scoop from the fan site Badass Digest, which suggests the Russo brothers were a logical choice: not only did their Winter Soldier make nearly $715 million, the events of Civil War reportedly play directly into the events of the Infinity War films.Civil War sees some of Marvel's most famous heroes squaring off against each other in two opposing factions regarding superhero registration with the government: Tony Stark/Iron Man is for it, and Steve Rogers/Captain America is staunchly against. The battle both philosophically and physically leaves The Avengers shattered and scattered. The film, the large cast of which includes Chris Evans as Cap, Robert Downey Jr. as Stark, Anthony Mackey as Falcon, and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, is slated for a May 6, 2016 debut.The plots of the Infinity movies, however, are expected to reunite heroes from both the Avengers films and from Guardians of the Galaxy. Both Infinity War movies will be shot simultaneously, but will be released in May 2018, and May 2019, respectively.Like Marvel, ABC News is owned by parent company Disney.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Jon Hamm Says He Has No ‘Grand Plan’ for His Life After “Mad Men”

Jon Hamm Says He Has No ‘Grand Plan’ for His Life After “Mad Men”

Carin Baer/AMC(NEW YORK) — Jon Hamm is ready to say goodbye to Don Draper who he has played for seven seasons on Mad Men, even if he's not exactly certain what's ahead."The one constant thing I've had in my career is now removed," Hamm told GQ. "And that’s an eye-opener: Are people still going to take me seriously? Am I just going to do romantic comedies for the rest of my life? What’s next? And I don’t know, you know? I wish I was smug enough to have had a grand plan."At least Hamm has found some encouragement from someone who's already gone through a similar life adjustment -- Bryan Cranston. Hamm said Cranston, who was recently freed from Breaking Bad, told him: "It’s hard, man. It’s hard to let it go. It’ll hit you a couple of different ways at different times."Nonetheless, Hamm is ready to give up Draper, whose downward spirals he said were draining to play for seven seasons."You’re kind of hoping for redemption, and it’s not forthcoming," he told the men's magazine. "To consistently come in and be the bummer was always like, ‘Oh, that’s not fun.’ But at the same time, it’s been like the greatest obstacle course in the world. A puzzle to figure out."After his side-splitting appearance on Saturday Night Live and his scene-stealing roles on 30 Rock and Bridesmaids, don't be surprised if Hamm's next role is much lighter."I have no affinity for it other than my appreciation of it," he said of doing a comedy. "I had no desire to get up onstage and tell jokes. I prefer to stand next to really funny people. I was always good at being observationally funny -- like contributing something funny to the conversation."Hamm and his fellow mad men will return to AMC on April 5 to wrap up the seventh and final season of the acclaimed series.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Debi Mazar: Shauna Is Doing Tons of ‘Damage Control’ in “Entourage” Movie

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Debi Mazar is back as the sharp-tongued publicist Shauna in the highly-anticipated film adaption of the HBO dramedy series Entourage. According to Mazar, Vincent Chase, played by Adrian Grenier, and the boys are keeping Shauna very busy in the film."Shauna has always been the person who's handling the drama, handling the stress, trying to control the media," Mazar tells ABC Radio. "In today's world, we have the Internet. You say one thing it's misconstrued. So her job is full-time because those guys are all over the place, and [there's] a lot of damage control.  So, she's just doing what she does best."It sounds as if Mazar may have experienced that need herself. "PR is a key in today's climate because it's all over the place. You know, there's just so much information," the new Silenor spokeswoman says. "People have cameras and they're going 'So what'd you think of this?' And then like they're twisting your words or they're shooting you and you're not expecting it."In Entourage, Vince is going behind the camera to write and direct his own movie. And apparently, he's way over budget. "It's a big, big-money movie. And Ari Gold, [played by] Jeremy Piven, is all over it. And the guys are involved...so it gets heated," says Mazar, adding, "And the guys are getting into some stuff and I can't tell you what that is."Mazar says she's glad the beloved HBO series is coming to the big screen. "It was nice to bring it back because after the series was over it was sad. You feel like you're breaking up," she says. Entourage, also starring Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara, hits theaters nationwide June 12.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

“Game of Thrones” Cast Attends San Francisco Premiere of New Season

“Game of Thrones” Cast Attends San Francisco Premiere of New Season

HBO(SAN FRANSISCO) — The cast of Game of Thrones was in San Francisco on Monday night for the U.S. premiere of the new season of their HBO fantasy series.The event, held at the War Memorial Opera House, was streamed on the Game of Thrones Facebook page, and was attended by stars such as Alfie Allen, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams.The actors hinted at what's to come in the new episodes. Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, said some of the characters who've previously never met will cross paths. He added, "I think that's going to be very exciting."In response to a Facebook question regarding whether her character, Daenerys Targaryen, is ready to take the throne, Clarke said, "I feel like she is getting closer with every episode, let alone every season, so you'll see some of those lessons being learned this season."Williams, a.k.a. Arya Stark, offered this preview of the direction Arya is headed in: "She's been recently stuck on this one emotion to try to get back to her family and to try and put right what was wrong. And I think in the new season we see her try to reject that a little bit and take her life into her own hands."Turner commented on the transformation her character, Sansa Stark, has made. "I'd gone through seasons like one through four kind of being not that liked. And then...and I'd done so many crying scenes and quite depressing scenes and it was nice to finally get a scene where I felt like I had a lot of power."The San Francisco event was staged five days after The Tower of London hosted a Game of Thrones premiere.The fifth season of Game of Thrones begins on HBO April 12.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Jennifer Lawrence Reveals the Secret to Her Friendship With Bradley Cooper

Jennifer Lawrence Reveals the Secret to Her Friendship With Bradley Cooper

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper have co-starred in several films together, including American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook -- and there's apparently a simple secret to their chemistry, on and off-screen. "No sex," the 24-year-old actress joked at the Cinema Society's New York City premiere of Serena on Saturday, according to People. Serena is now the third film the two have appeared in together. "I forced him to come onto the movie," Lawrence revealed. "I mean, any male role is going to make me think of Bradley because in my opinion, he's the best, and I love working with him." The feeling is mutual for Cooper, 40, who told reporters, "I respect her so much as a professional, as an actor, and I think she's the best there is." "And I just learn from her. You always want to work with people that are better than you," he added. Lawrence said they rarely disagree on anything, including where to go for dinner, declaring, "We're both two of the biggest eaters in Hollywood." Serena is a Depression-era drama that stars Lawrence as the wife of a timber baron, played by Cooper. It opens March 27. Lawrence and Cooper will also be seen on the big screen together later this year in Joy, a drama about the woman who invented the Miracle Mop. That film opens Christmas Day.

“Pretty Woman” Turns 25: How It Would Be Different Today

“Pretty Woman” Turns 25: How It Would Be Different Today

Buena Vista/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Ready to feel old? Pretty Woman hit theaters 25 years ago on Monday. For those of you who haven't seen the film, here's a quick recap: Richard Gere stars as Edward Lewis, a hard-nosed businessman who hires a sassy, but unpolished, prostitute named Vivian (played by Julia Roberts) to attend social functions with him while he negotiates an important business deal.

With the help of the friendly Beverly Wilshire Hotel manager Barnard (Hector Elizondo), Vivian gets a complete makeover and learns proper etiquette, ultimately winning over Edward, with whom she falls in love. Cue a homeless man wandering around, encouraging everybody to follow their dreams and Roy Orbison crooning "Pretty Woman." In a lot of ways, it's a formula we've seen a lot over the years. However, there are a few choice moments in Pretty Woman that aren't as plausible now as they were back in 1990. Here are a few, below: 1. Edward meets Vivian: Edward first meets Vivian when he stops to ask her directions to his hotel. Ultimately, he let her drive his car there. This would never happen today. First of all, Edward would absolutely have access to a GPS system, or, at the very least, a mapping function on his phone, so it's unlikely that he would have gotten lost in the first place. And, if he did, he'd call for help. He wouldn't ask a random person on the street for directions.2. Edward drives a Lotus: Lotus is mostly known for race cars these days. In a modern version of Pretty Woman, maybe Edward would drive a Tesla and be in need of a charging station.3. "You're on my fax": That's an actual sentence that Edward says to Vivian. Shortly thereafter, we learn that he has a cell phone the size of his head and does not appear to use a laptop. None of this stands the test of time, but the quote does have a certain ring to it!4. Vivian listens to Prince on her Walkman while taking a bath: Prince's "Kiss" may be timeless, but sadly, Walkmans are not. Vivian would be listening to music -- or maybe a podcast -- on her phone. (She could get into "Serial," right?)5. Edward hires Vivian for the week: Edward, a busy man in the middle of a big business deal, needs someone to accompany him to a week's worth of social events, so he hires Vivian to do the job. After all, times were tough in 1990: You had to go out, meet someone in real life, and then take her on a date before proposing something like that. Today, Edward could simplify things: He could download Tinder, swipe right a few times, and voila! He's set.6. "You really should think about traveler's checks": That's the advice Vivian gives to Edward when he hands her a stack of cash for a new wardrobe. There are people today who don't even know what a traveler's check is. A simpler way to go would have been what he did later: give her his card.7. Vivian is turned away from a store on Rodeo Drive: In one of the film's most famous scenes, Vivian, still in her street clothes, is humiliated when saleswomen at an upscale boutique refuses to help her. The next day, after having better luck at another store, a glammed up-Vivian walks back into the first shop to confront her bullies. "You work on commission, right?" she asks them, waving her shopping bags in their faces. "Big mistake. Big. Huge." These days, it's unlikely anyone would bat an eye at her original outfit -- a short skirt and cropped top. After all, some stars wear those looks on the red carpet!8. Vivian goes on shopping spree: Vivian finally goes on a shopping spree, shown in the film as a montage set to "Pretty Woman." It seems more likely that today, a stylist would come to the hotel armed with everything she'd need. And when they ordered her pizza? Forget it. 1990's "Who ordered pizza?" is today's, "Who ordered kale salad and green juices?!" 9. Edward tells Vivian not to answer the phone: Vivian would have a cell phone, which she probably would have used to get an Uber car to take her home from the hotel in the first place, but that's neither here nor there. Either way, if Edward wanted to get a hold of her, he could text her, or call her cell phone. She probably wouldn't even think to answer the phone in the hotel room.10. Vivian whoops at the polo match: By 1990, Arsenio Hall had popularized whooping and first pumping, which was how Vivian reacted to a polo match. Now she'd probably just snap a selfie to prove how excited she was to be there.11. Edward's lawyer's wife is described as an "aerobics queen": Edward's lawyer Philip Stuckey (played by Jason Alexander) remarks that his wife is an "aerobics queen" after she runs off to catch up with a friend from "Workout World." In 2015, Elizabeth Stuckey would be into SoulCycle. 12. Kit and Vivian share an emotional goodbye: As Vivian packs up her things to move to San Francisco, Kit, her roommate, nostalgically looks old photos and gives her a big hug. Today, Kit would be flipping through her Instagram page, and the goodbye would be less depressing, because they'd probably be texting and Facetiming within hours.
