The children of celebrities enjoy a silver-spoon upbringing, yet endure incessant media attention from the moment they are born – and the constant risk of living in their famous parents’ shadows. They have to work extra hard to make people recognise them for who they are rather than who their parents are. Yet these Chinese stars have overcome the pitfalls of a celebrity childhood to carve out successful show business careers and even outshine their star parents. Arthur Chen Feiyu The son of film director Chen Kaige and actress Chen Hong, Feiyu was born in the United States.

MANCHESTER UNITED fans may never get the chance to thank Edinson Cavani, but they will not forget him. How fitting it would be if his last act in the famous red shirt would be to have the Europa League trophy in his hands, a winner yet again. Two goals, two assists and a penalty won was his contribution as United came back from 2-1 down to win this Europa League semi-final first leg tie 6-2. No wonder manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate for the 34-year-old legend of Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain to extend his stay by another season. Unfortunately he wants a return to South America , but before that he wants a trophy for Manchester United - and with this win they are all but in the final. The hope for maybe 2,000 United fans is that they can be there too and the chance to sing Cavani’s name may come. For Solskjaer his semi-final hoodoo as boss looks to be over having lost his previous four over this season and last. That first trophy he dreams of is in … [Read more...] about Man Utd 6 Roma 2: Cavani masterclass sees Solskjaer’s side with one foot in Europa League final as Roma collapse
Built on a foundation of dreams and unimaginable wealth, the walls of these once-grand mansions hide a chilling history. Earlier this week, an abandoned manor known as the 'Welsh Palace of Versailles' went back on the market for £750,000. The Grade 1-listed Kinmel Hall, near Abergele, Conwy, was once one of the country's most prestigious estates, and was even visited by Queen Victoria. However, the 80,000 sq ft property has tragically fallen into a state of disrepair since its construction in 1850. While many of its grand marble columns and arches ceilings remain in tact, shocking photographs show crumbling brickwork and plaster falling from the walls of its vast 122 rooms. And the fading home is far from the only glorious landmark to have fallen upon hard times over the years - with properties around the world going to waste after gruesome hammer murders, playboy scandals and ghostly legends. 'Wretched' psychiatric hospital - Glasgow, Scotland In the rural … [Read more...] about World’s creepiest abandoned mansions left to rot after grisly murders and ‘ghostly visits’
By Michael Hurley , CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — At this point in his career, the very last person that needs a kick in the butt would seemingly be Tom Brady. The Buccaneers are giving him one anyway. Well, at least it seems that way, after the Buccaneers drafted quarterback Kyle Trask out of Florida with the 64th overall pick of this year’s draft. Welcome to Tampa Bay, @ktrask9 ! #GoBucs pic.twitter.com/v130nt8F5L — Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@Buccaneers) May 1, 2021 The Buccaneers are obviously being prudent, drafting a potential quarterback of the future. Their current quarterback is approaching his 44th birthday, after all. Still, one can’t help but be reminded of another team that tried to draft Brady’s successor in the second round, only to kick-start arguably the best four-year stretch of the entire Hall of Fame career of the then-Patriots quarterback. That time, it was obviously Jimmy Garoppolo, whom the Patriots selected with the 62nd overall pick in … [Read more...] about Are Buccaneers Pulling A Jimmy G. On Tom Brady With Pick Of QB Kyle Trask?
