Jennifer Aniston Had the Best Reaction to Mariah Carey’s Throwback Attempt at “The Rachel”

Published

Days after the recent Friends reunion aired, everyone began to feel nostalgic for the ’90s sitcom — Mariah Carey, included.

On Friday, the pop star posted a photo of herself with a haircut arguably more iconic than her — The Rachel — and Jennifer Aniston, who originally made the layered chop famous as her character Rachel Green, responded.

“#FBF A sad attempt at the Rachel hairdo ? #friends,” Carey captioned a photo of herself wearing her wavy locks in a half-up, half-down ponytail while performing on stage. And while Mariah may not be a fan of her throwback look, Jen gave her stamp of approval.

In the comments section of Carey’s post, Aniston wrote, “LOVE IT ?.”

Though, to be fair, even Jen herself had trouble styling the Rachel cut. Back in 2018, the actress paid tribute to the creator of the shaggy style, Chris McMillan, at the InStyle Awards, saying: “I got that haircut, that was like, ‘Wow this is amazing,’ and then I was totally left with this frizzy mop on my head, because I had no idea how to do what he did.”

She added, “Nobody seems to know how to do what Chris does. And I figured out that’s called creating job security.”

Ahmedabad: A former employee of a private bank allegedly cheated seven persons of Rs 1.5 lakh under the garb of providing them Covid assistance loans
In his complaint with Navrangpura police on Saturday, victim Dharmesh Sharma, a 47-year-old resident of Chanakyapuri, filed a complaint for him and six others against accused Ramakant Sahu, a resident of Nikol who runs a financial consultancy office in CG Road area.
Sharma, who runs a clock shop, said he had met Sahu when the latter was a bank representative and had provided him with a credit card this May.
“In June, Sahu approached me again and said he had left the bank job. He told me he was helping those who suffered financial crisis during Covid-19 pandemic to secure loans. He told me that the government was providing subsidized loans under the ‘Vajpayi Bankable Scheme’ and that he could help me get a loan.
Sahu also approached Ashwin Mistry of Chanakyapuri, Asaram Verma of Chandlodia, Chandrika Nishad of Ghatlodia, Nitin Rathod and Zakir Qureshi of Saraspur and Murtuza Ahmed Shaikh of Shahpur. He duped them by getting them to pay processing fees for the loan,” Sharma told police.
Sahu cheated them out of Rs 1.5 lakh before going incommunicado on July 25. Later, the victims approached police and filed a complaint of cheating and breach of trust against Sahu.

JAIPUR: In an act of gross negligence, a four-member family who had come here from the US around 15 days ago, returned despite both their kids aged eight and six years testing positive for Covid.
“They boarded a flight to the US from Delhi at 2am on Sunday despite the two kids testing positive for Covid and putting co-passengers at risk of getting infected,” said Dr Narrottam Sharma, chief medical health officer (Jaipur-I).
The children along with their parents had come to Jaipur to meet their relatives residing in Bani Park. Out of eight cases reported in Jaipur, two were of the kids who have allegedly left for the US.
“Before going to the US, they had got their Covid test done at a private diagnostic centre, the report of which came on Saturday. When we received information from the lab about the two kids testing positive, our teams reached the house where they were staying in Bani Park for contact tracing, but they informed us that they had already left Jaipur in their private vehicle and were travelling to the US,” said Dr Sharma, adding the health authorities confronted them how they allowed them to travel flouting Covid norms.
“They said the children did not have any Covid symptoms and were healthy. They also have a declaration from a pediatrician mentioning that the children do not have Covid symptoms,” said Dr Sharma.

New COVID variant casts shadow over vacation plans of Malayali expatriates- The New Indian Express

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Indian expats who have been planning to visit the home country to be with their families for Christmas will be hit hard with the emergence of the new variant of COVID virus, Omicron, in South Africa. The expats are now forced to reschedule their travel fearing that they might be stuck here if West Asian countries close their borders in the event of further spread. 

In addition, the prospects of foreign tourists arriving in Kerala would also be slim if the Omicron infection spreads. Kerala has strengthened screening and testing of all international travellers coming from or transiting through South Africa, Botswana, Hong Kong, Brazil, Bangladesh, China, Mauritius, New Zealand, Singapore, Zimbabwe, and Israel at its four airports.

A senior Air India officer said, “A majority of Kerala expats are based in West Asian countries. So far, no air traffic regulation has been announced in those countries. We cannot assure travellers that the air traffic will not be affected.”

Kerala-headquartered Air India Express has almost regained 80% of its traffic after the GCC countries lifted regulations enforced following the second wave. 

“Although no traffic curbs have been announced, we are anticipating a drop in passenger traffic to India from GCC countries in December as expats are likely to avoid travelling anticipating traffic regulations in the event of detecting more cases of Omicron infection,” said an Air India Express officer.  

KV Dhanu, a private company staffer in Dubai, said he was planning to come down to Kerala by December 1 for post-COVIDd treatment. “I have applied for a 10-day leave for treatment purposes. But now, I am doubtful if I will be able to get back here on time,” he said.

So is the case with expats who plan to come to Kerala for Christmas vacation. Normally, the expats travel to Kerala during Christmas vacation and fly back after New Year. Now it’s almost certain that the passenger movement would be affected severely as quarantine is mandated for passengers, said a private airline officer.

The emergence of the new COVID variant will also be a dampener for Kerala Tourism which has started an international campaign to woo foreign tourists.

Earlier this month, Kerala had made an impressive presence at the three-day World Travel Market (WTM) 2021 in London sending out a strong message that the tourism sector here is on the path of recovery from the prolonged pandemic-triggered lull. The UK is the biggest source market for Kerala Tourism over the years.
