There’s no denying that the vast world of entertainment is full of talented artists of every kind, whether it be those who are required to stay in front of the cameras or those who work their magic from behind. However, the latter – stylists, directors, writers, and makeup artists, to name a few – usually play the most significant role in bringing the entire image together. So now that reality shows like ‘The Kardashians’ have inadvertently placed a focus on them by displaying their vocation first-hand, let’s learn more about one of the most influential MUAs right now, Mario Dedivanovic.

Who is Mario Dedivanovic?

Born and raised in Bronx, New York, as the youngest of four to Albanian parents from Montenegro, Mario Dedivanovic has been passionate about beauty and aestheticism from a young age. Thus, it came as no surprise when he landed a job at a Sephora store at just 17 in 2000, only to evolve into a makeup artist from a fragrance consultant simply by helping others find the perfect products at first. Despite a few bumps in the road, Mario then spread his wings to establish a career in the field by assisting professionals and taking up small jobs until he made a name for himself.

It was 2008 when Mario first met Kim Kardashian on a photoshoot for a magazine, and since they immediately clicked both personally as well as professionally, they never really parted ways. His agency at the time had demanded that he cut off ties with the reality star as they believed “she’ll never be successful. And you’re going to go down right with her,” but he followed his gut, only for them both to ascent into fame. From a YouTube video together in 2009 that helped Mario realize his aptitude for makeup education to him being responsible for some of Kim’s most iconic looks, there’s a reason they’re still each other’s go-to, and it’s trust.

In November 2019, owing to his absolute dedication as a makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic was honored with the Artistic Achievement Award at the second American Influencer Awards. It was presented to him by none other than Kim Kardashian, which means that she was literally standing right beside him for support when he came out to the world as “a proud gay man.” That’s the same year he actually collaborated with his friend to launch a KKW Beauty palette, foreshadowing his own self-explanatory brand Makeup By Mario.

Mario’s business caters to everyday people (like you and me) to help them achieve an elevated beauty look with minimal effort. “I launched the brand in my 20th year as an artist, which has been part of my plan for a long time,” Mario said, referring to why 2020 was the year he decided to take the next step despite covid. “I’m a little old school where I feel like you have to pay your dues… It was the most challenging thing I’ve ever done in my life, and discovering exactly how complicated creating products can be. Then launching in the middle of a pandemic made everything more difficult than it already was, but thankfully we got through it with [a] successful launch.”

Moreover, since 2009, the New Yorker has been serving as a teacher, role model, and inspiration to aspiring makeup artists as well as enthusiasts all across the globe through his Masterclasses. Mario admits that education is a core pillar of his overall brand because, without continuous learning, there’s no point in being a part of this everchanging yet evergreen industry. We should also mention that not only does Makeup By Mario ship worldwide today, but the artist also has other celebrities like Naomie Harris, Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez, and Salma Hayek as his clients.

Who Is Hannah in Night Sky? Why Does Cornelius Call Her an Apostate?

Published

Portrayed by Sonya Walger, Hannah is one of the most important supporting characters in Amazon Prime Video’s ‘Night Sky,’ Even though she is introduced in episode 7, titled ‘Lake Diving,’ she becomes a crucial part of the plot by the time the first season concludes. After escaping from the most secretive and dangerous cult in the world, Jude comes to Farnsworth, Illinois, in search of his father, Gabriel. He later discovers that a truck driver dropped Gabriel off at a location in Enfield, Michigan. Jude travels there with Irene and Denise and discovers that it’s a bed and breakfast establishment. Its owner is Hannah. Here is everything you need to know about her. SPOILERS AHEAD.

Who Is Hannah?

Hannah introduces herself as the owner of the bed and breakfast establishment. She informs Jude and the others that Gabriel came there 15 years earlier. He worked as a handyman, and they had a relationship, but ultimately, he moved on. She seems to be still bitter about it. However, it soon becomes apparent that she is not exactly what she claims to be. Hidden somewhere in the hotel, a man named Paul is keeping surveillance on all the guests.

Hannah later has a long conversation with Jude about Gabriel and lets him stay in the same room his father once occupied. There, Jude finds the codes to his father’s possible location in a copy of ‘The Count of Monte Cristo.’ The following morning, when Jude and the others depart, Paul follows them.

The season finale reveals that Hannah used to be part of the cult just like Jude and Gabriel. And now, she heads an organization that fights the cult. They don’t interfere when Cornelius threatens the Yorks and Jude. However, after he is subdued and placed in the van that Stella and Toni took from Nick, Hannah and her people intercept them on the road. Stella tells Hannah that she is no longer a guardian of the cult before she and Toni are taken away. When Hannah speaks to Cornelius, it becomes apparent that they know each other. Cornelius is fanatically devoted to the cult. Even after being captured by the enemy, he is outwardly defiant. However, his eyes give away that he is terrified.

Why Does Cornelius Call Hannah an Apostate?

From the interaction between Hannah and Cornelius and the fact that Gabriel sought her out, we can glean that Hannah left the cult before Gabriel. In the following years, she presumably set up a resistance against the most powerful shadowy organization in the world. She likely knew that Gabriel had left the codes to his location in his room and ensured that Jude would find it. She and Gabriel did probably have a relationship, and she just might be bitter that it ended. But she likely omitted its context. It’s possible that Gabriel was part of her organization before his departure and played a pivotal role in the fight against the cult. However, he has since moved on. For Hannah, the fight continues.

As mentioned above, Cornelius is fanatically devoted to the cult. The phrase “apostate” refers to a person who has renounced their religion. In Hannah’s case, she has left the cult. This is why Hannah — along with Jude, Gabriel, and now Stella — is an apostate to Cornelius and all other active cult members.

Where is Keith Laborde Now?

Published

twins karen and sharon

Vincent Simmons was just 25 when he was sentenced to 100 years in prison after being accused of violently raping Karen and Sharon Sanders — a set of 14-year-old twins — a crime he maintains he never committed. However, as explored in ’48 Hours: Please Don’t Tell,’ Karen and Sharon Sanders insist he’s guilty despite recently agreeing to drop the charges against him and the supposed odd involvement of Keith Laborde. So now, if you wish to find out more about the latter, especially the details of his relationship with the sisters as well as his possible current whereabouts, here’s all that we know.

Who is Keith Laborde?

At the time of the alleged incident on the evening of May 9, 1977, an 18-year-old reported Marine Corps officer Keith Laborde was with Karen and Sharon Sanders, who are his first cousins. He was driving them back home from his place when he picked up a hitchhiker from 7-11, as per their accounts, only for it to end up with him forced into the trunk of his vehicle at knifepoint. Like the girls, once they went to the authorities with this ordeal two weeks later, Keith insisted their assailant was a Black man, whom they all individually later identified as Vincent Simmons from a lineup.

With that said, though, one of their other cousins has since claimed that the trio lied at every step of the way, which is something Keith personally told her at a bar long after Vincent’s conviction. “He told me that he had consensual sex with one of the girls and locked the other in the trunk,” Dana Brouillette stated in a sworn affidavit. She later explained, “He had gone down Little California Road, and he locked Sharon in the trunk, and he said the sex between him and Karen was consensual. He said, but the other one was a little hellcat… [She] put the scratches on his neck.”

Dana actually believes Keith, Karen, and Sharon concocted the story of a Black man attacking them to justify the noticeable scratches, along with the state of their overall appearance that night. But Karen clarified the entire situation in an interview with CBS by stating that although she did engage in consensual sex with Keith, it was way before the summer of 1977. She was reportedly just a child back then, whereas he was a teenager, and they “experimented. But that has nothing to do with what Vincent did. That’s two separate incidents. That’s two separate things,” she said.

Where is Keith Laborde Now?

Despite the (seemingly unsupported) accusations against him, Keith Laborde has outrightly denied ever having sex with Karen, according to ’48 Hours.’ He told the production that they only “played around like children,” nothing less and nothing more, but yes, every part of it was consensual. Coming to his current standing, in his 60s, it appears as if the Louisiana native prefers to keep well away from the limelight these days because he purportedly has a family of his own.

Keith wholeheartedly maintains that Vincent is guilty, which is why when CNN approached him for an interview in 2020, he reportedly let his anger out in the form of profanities, threats, and racial slurs directed toward him. Keith concluded with, “This sh*t happened. It’s real. It happened. And I’m not dealing with this no more I’m not looking over my shoulder anymore… I had enough of this sh*t.”
