FAMOUS American socialite Gloria Vanderbilt has died of cancer today at the age of 95, her family has revealed.

Her son CNN anchor Anderson Cooper confirmed the tragic news on his TV show with an emotional on-air obituary.

He revealed his fashion icon mother – whose lovers reportedly included Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra – had died at her home.

“She was ready. She was ready to go,” the TV star told millions of viewers. “(She died) the way she wanted.”

The world-famous jeans designer died of stomach cancer at her home surrounded by family and friends.

“Gloria Vanderbilt was an extraordinary woman who loved life and lived it on her own terms,” Cooper said during an on-air eulogy.

He said they learned she had advanced cancer only earlier this month.

“What an extraordinary life. What an extraordinary mom. What an incredible woman,” he said.

When still a teen Gloria headed to Hollywood and developed a fondness for older men – Errol Flynn and Howard Hughes were among those she dated.

Then aged just 17 she married Hollywood agent Pat DiCicco.

They divorced four years later, but before the marriage was officially over, Vanderbilt was already in love with conductor Leopold Stokowski, and they wed in 1945.

She was 21, he was 63. During their 10-year marriage, they had two sons, Stanley and Christopher.

After reported flings with Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando, Vanderbilt married director Sidney Lumet in 1956, and they stayed together until 1963.

Just four months after that divorce, Vanderbilt wed writer Wyatt Cooper in 1963 which she once described as her only happy marriage.

That final marriage produced two sons, Carter and Anderson before Cooper died in 1978 during open-heart surgery.

A decade later, Carter, then 23, committed suicide by jumping from his mother’s 14th-floor New York penthouse terrace as she tried to stop him.

“I’ve had many, many loves,” Vanderbilt told The Associated Press in a 2004 interview. “I always feel that something wonderful is going to happen. And it always does.”

The dark-haired, tall and ultra-thin Vanderbilt partnered with Mohan Murjani, who introduced a $1 million advertising campaign in 1978 that turned the Gloria Vanderbilt brand with its signature white swan label into a sensation.

At its peak in 1980, her jeans empire was generating over $200 million in sales.

And decades later, famous-name designer jeans dressed up or down remain a woman’s wardrobe staple.

In 2009, the 85-year-old Vanderbilt penned a new novel, “Obsession: An Erotic Tale,” a graphic tale about an architect’s widow who discovers a cache of her husband’s letters that reveal his secret sex life.

In an interview with The New York Times, she said she wasn’t embarrassed about the explicitness of her new book, saying: “I don’t think age has anything to do with what you write about.

“The only thing that would embarrass me is bad writing, and the only thing that really concerned me was my children. You know how children can be about their parents. But mine are very intelligent and supportive.”

Gloria Laura Madeleine Sophie Vanderbilt was born in 1924, a century after her great-great-grandfather started the family fortune, first in steamships, later in railroads.

He left around $100 million when he died in 1877 at age 82.

Their daughter was just one when Vanderbilt died in 1925, having gone through $25 million in 14 years.

Beneficiary of a $5 million trust fund, Vanderbilt became the “poor little rich girl” in 1934 at age 10 as the object of a custody fight between her globe-trotting mother and matriarchal aunt.

ARSENAL will not overrule Unai Emery in negotiations for teenage defender William Saliba.

The Gunners are in advanced talks with St Etienne over a £25million deal for the 18-year-old French youth international.

William Saliba has been likened to France and Real Madrid star Raphael VaraneGetty - Contributor

But the two clubs are still haggling over the Ligue 1 outfit’s request to keep their powerful young centre-half for one more year before allowing him to move to the Emirates.

Arsenal are keen to seal a deal for Saliba, who has already been compared to Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane despite playing only 13 games in the French League.

And they want to conclude negotiations as quickly as possible to head off growing interest from Manchester City.

But Emery is reluctant to commit more than half of his entire summer budget on a player who will not be available to him next season.

He has been handed just £45m to overhaul his squad and is looking to sign a midfielder, winger and left-back as well as a centre-half.

And Arsenal will allow their Spanish coach to have the final say on the deal despite their determination to get Saliba on board.

St Etienne believe they are in a strong position to dictate terms after agreeing a similar deal when they sold Kurt Zouma to Chelsea for £12.5m in 2014 but were allowed to loan him back for the rest of the season.

The French club are arguing that Saliba is still too raw for the Premier League and would be better off spending another season playing regular French League football.

Emery, though, remains unconvinced and wants any new signings to join his squad immediately.

Now Arsenal are hoping they can reach a compromise agreement, with suggestions of a six-month loan deal which would mean Saliba joining Arsenal in January.

EMMERDALE fans think Robert Sugden will be murdered by evil rapist Lee Posner as revenge for his campaign of terror against him.

Actor Ryan Hawley is set to leave the soap later this year and fans are already speculating how his character will be written out of the Dales.

Victoria was raped by club goer Lee

Viewers were devastated when The Sun exclusively revealed Ryan had called it quits after five years on the long-running soap.

Contemplating the different ways the fan-favourite might leave the show, many guessed he may get sent to prison for attacking or killing his sister Victoria’s rapist, Lee.

But now there’s a new theory – Robert gets murdered by Lee for trying to expose him as the disgusting rapist he is.

A fan tweeted their theory: “I don’t think the #LeePosner #Emmerdale character is going anywhere any time soon as according to Kris Mochrie CV they have Lee’s character listed as a series regular {so I’m guessing #RobertSugden gets killed off}”

Victoria is furious with Rob for the postersITV Robert wants Lee to pay for his crime and get the punishment he deserves Fans think Lee will murder Robert for plastering posters calling him a rapist around the village

Viewers were sickened when Victoria was brutally attacked in her own bedroom after a night out and has now ended up pregnant by her rapist. Despite going to the police, there’s little the authorities have been able to do anything due to insufficient evidence.

Since then, Robert has taken matters into his own hands as he’s attempted to force despicable Lee into confessing to his crime.

On Friday night’s episode Robert and Aaron went to Lee’s car dealership and convinced him to take them on a test drive, with Robert attempting to get Lee to confess during the drive.

When Lee didn’t take the bait, the protective brother pulled over the car and confronted the rapist in a field – shouting at him for what he’d done to his sister.

When Lee replied that he didn’t know his sister, Robert hit back: “You don’t know her, that didn’t stop you from raping her, did it?”

Defending his crime, Lee sneered: “She’s obviously not right in the head, she was well up for it.

“It was obvious she wanted it, why else would she invite me back to hers?

“She wanted it as much as I did, she was all over me like some cheap tart.”

The row left Robert fuming and even more determined to the get the truth out of him

But his poster plan doesn’t go quite to plan though as Victoria, who has decided to keep the baby after falling pregnant, is questioned by the police about the posters.

But will Robert get his revenge on Lee, or will the evil rapist silence him for good?

WORCESTERSHIRE have been forced to move their County Championship cricket game after their ground was flooded with THREE FEET of water.

They were scheduled to play Sussex at their New Road home from Tuesday until Friday, but this has now been switched to Kidderminster Cricket Club.

Worcestershire’s New Road home is under water after recent freak floodsSWNS:South West News Service There won’t be any cricket happening at Worcestershire’s New Road cricket ground this weekPA:Press Association The flooding at the cricket ground was as high as 3ft as the rain teemed down over the weekendPA:Press Association

It came after the River Severn burst its banks following the recent heavy rain.

Worcestershire haven’t played at the Chester Road ground for a Championship game since 2008.

Photographs showed the ground at New Road fully submerged following the freak downpours.

Worcestershire chief executive Matt Rawnsley said: “This is not an ideal situation and we would always prefer to play at Blackfinch New Road.

NOTHING NEW

“However, the change of venue gives us the best chance of playing.

“Kidderminster Cricket Club has hosted many first class fixtures over the years and we are extremely grateful for their assistance at such short notice.

“We would also like to thank the ECB and Sussex County Cricket Club for their co-operation.”

The game was scheduled to start on Monday, but this has now been moved to Tuesday to give ground staff enough time to prepare.

The county’s matches are shrewdly scheduled to ensure there are as few early-season cancellations as possible.

A HORRIFIED mum of a 14-year-old girl battered by teen bullies has blamed the brutal attack on “powerless parents”.

Shocking footage of Keisha Wigg being kicked and stamped on in the savage brawl went viral after mum Laura shared it online.

A mum of a schoolgirl attacked by bullies has slammed the thugs’ parentsUnknown Keisha Wigg, with mum Laura, was kicked and stamped onDeadline News

The 31-year-old has now lashed out at the parents for not properly disciplining their children as she tries to cope following the assault in Aveley, Essex.

Laura said: “If it was my child who had done what they did to Keisha, I would have told the girl to punch my daughter in the face.

“They have taken away our responsibilities as parents by not letting us discipline our children

“I used to be smacked as a child and it didn’t do me any harm.

“But then again, they’re the ones sending their kids off with fancy phones etc. It’s a catch 22 situation, you can’t win.

“Something needs to change. What would have happened if they had killed her? It’s not as if they had kicked her in the legs. What in case she ends up having a brain problem, it’s lucky they didn’t blind her.”

SHOCKING ATTACK

The horrifying footage on June 5 showed Keisha, who has ADHD, being surrounded and punched in the head by three girls.

Another girl then shows up as the helpless schoolgirl is dragged to the ground and kicked repeatedly.

Laura decided to release the footage to raise awareness and change how children are prosecuted when they carry out an assault.

Essex Police confirmed they are treating the incident as an assault.

A spokeswoman said: “We’re treating this as an assault and our enquiries are ongoing.”

Ormiston Academies Trust, who run Keisha’s school Ormiston Park Academy, said they were working with Police on the incident.

APPLE looks set to release a trio of new iPhones in 2019 – if these leaked photos are to be believed.

The hotly-anticipated iPhone 11 will release alongside an iPhone 11 Max and iPhone 11R, according to the snaps.

Olixar The camera protectors built by Olixar, a company that makes iPhone accessories. They indicate that three iPhones will be released this year[/caption]

They purport to show camera protector accessories designed specifically for the three phones, which are due out in September.

Two images were leaked by case-makers Olixar, who have a reputation for releasing accessories for devices ahead of launch.

The protectors on show appear to line up with previous rumours about the camera system of the iPhone 11, which Apple hasn’t even acknowledged exists yet.

They suggest the gadget will come with a triple rear camera system – likely sporting normal, telefoto and wide-angle lenses.

Olixar Here’s the camera protector (right) lined up on an iPhone XS Max[/caption]

That means the 11’s camera will be a big step up from the iPhone XS range, which had dual 12MP rear cameras.

As with previous Apple releases, the iPhone 11 will be the flagship model, while users can choose to fork out a little more for the larger 11 Max.

The 11R will most likely be a cheaper version with fewer of the bells and whistles.

Olixar and other accessory makers often have access to blueprints of new phones long before nearly anybody else.

That’s because companies like Apple and Samsung send the measurements of their gizmos to these firms early so they have time to mass-produce cases and other add-ons before release.

That being said, there’s no guarantee the Olixar pictures are real, so take the leak with a pinch of salt.

The iPhone 11 has not yet been confirmed by Apple.

Based on the pattern of previous releases, it’s safe to say we can expect the launch in early September. Rumours surrounding its design and features continue to flood in before release.

The handset could be £300 more expensive than today’s top Apple smartphones, experts warn.

The phone could also be ‘coming in two new colours’ we’ve never seen from Apple before, reports claim.

WHEN Kaitlyn Grace began to lose her voice she wasn’t too concerned.

She had been suffering with a cold and was expecting it to return to normal once she’d shifted the virus.

Kaitlyn Grace, from Queensland, Australia, lost her voice for eight months after catching a coldInstagram

But after two months the 28-year-old, from Queensland, Australia, was still unable to speak.

As a manager of a busy Irish pub, it was making her worklife a misery.

She was forced to whisper or use hand gestures to communicate with customers, but it soon it became too much to bear.

Kaitlyn went to see her doctor in May 2016 and was told it was a serious case of laryngitis.

She told Yahoo News: “I was trying so hard to get out what I wanted to say and I knew that people couldn’t hear it so it wasn’t their fault, but I was just getting frustrated over the whole thing.

“I remember crying to my mum, saying that I was never going to have my voice back, and never going to be the way I was before. It was kind of hard.”

I remember crying to my mum, saying that I was never going to have my voice back… it was kind of hard

Kaitlyn Grace

Eventually she went back and asked to be referred to a specialist, but says her doctor refused despite her symptoms.

It took a further three months before she was referred and placed on a waiting list and another two months until she was seen by the ear, nose and throat consultant.

There, Kaitlyn was diagnosed with left vocal nerve paralysis, which medics said had developed as a result of her bout of laryngitis.

What is vocal cord paralysis and what causes it?

The vocal cords, also known as vocal folds, sit at the top of the windpipe (trachea).

They are two folds of tissue stretched across the voice box (larynx).

They vibrate, adjusting the flow of air from the lungs, to produce speech sounds.

Vocal cord paralysis is the term used when there is weakness in one or both vocal folds stopping them moving as they should.

The most important nerve controlling movement of the vocal cords is called the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN).

There are a number of causes, which may be present at birth or acquired at later in childhood.

The RLN may be damaged during childbirth. The RLN can also be damaged during surgery, particularly to the heart and lungs or to repair problems with the foodpipe. Neurological conditions may also affect the RLN, as can infection. Rarely, the nerve may be squashed by a mass in the neck area.

Source: GOSH 

She was forced to have a “super daunting” treatment in which her throat was injected with a collagen-like substance to plump up her vocal cords.

Thankfully, the procedure was a success and Kaitlyn was finally able to use her voice for the first time in eight months.

She said: “I just burst out crying. It was so instant. Then every time he did another injection, my voice was getting clearer and clearer. It was really cool.”

Kaitlyn had to fork out £3,200 ($6,000 AUD) for the treatment, but says it “saved” her voice.

She said: “I know now I need to listen to my body really early, because I caught the common cold and continued working the whole time, so I don’t know if I did more damage by doing that.

“In hindsight I wish I took four or five days off and didn’t keep going back to work.”

Kaitlyn is waiting to find out whether she needs  further reconstructive surgery due to the severity of nerve damage done to her throat.

STUNNED fans watched a fall backwards onto an opponent from 20 feet above the ground.

Daredevil Aerostar was fighting in the Verano de Escandalo (Summer of Scandal) event organised by the AAA ‘lucha libre’ wrestling company in the state of Yucatan.

Aerostar’s huge fall came in front of hundreds of fansGolders/@aaaerostar1

He climbs the rigging surrounding the ring and holds on preparing to jump backwards.

But Aerostar appeared to fall and lands on rivals Monster and Chessman.

Local media said that Aerostar, 34, was taken backstage on a stretcher after the incident but was not seriously injured.

He has since written on social media: “I’m going to be totally sincere with you, it’s a very difficult jump to do but it’s not impossible.

“I promise to improve it, I’m going to give it the aesthetic it deserves.

“It’s a jump that because of the height you can’t practice but I promise I’ll achieve it.”

OUR pair are back on the road and head to Day 1 at Ascot in a confident mood.

With Chappers ahead 3-2 overall, Templegate is looking to draw level with Royal Ascot set to decide who wins the battle this June.

Standings (£1 Stakes)

January: Chappers 1 – 0 Templegate

February: Chappers 1 – 1 Templegate

March: Chappers 1 – 2 Templegate

April: Chappers 2 – 2 Templegate

May: Chappers 3 – 2 Templegate

June: Chappers -3 – -3 Templegate

Templegate

Get bowled over by a Batt in the Ascot Stakes.

It’s hardly surprising the last nine winners of this race had recent jumps form considering it’s run over a few yards short of a stamina-sucking 2m4f.

That stat doesn’t help the chances of Time To Study, Ulster and Mancini but it does point to BATTS ROCK.

He was useful for Michael Bell and he won his first two Flat starts after moving to Gordon Elliott. It’s fair to say he hasn’t quite lived up to expectations over hurdles but, despite breaking his duck at Downpatrick last month, he doesn’t really look to be enjoying it.

This will be the first time he’s raced over this far and I’ve a feeling it will suit him. The booking of Frankie Dettori is hardly going to do him any harm, either.

The big sprint is at 3.40pm with the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes over five furlongs.

I have no doubt in my mind BATTAASH is the best horse in the field and if he brings his A game he’s going to take all the beating.

He came back with a fabulous win at Haydock and while he’s not always consistent at York, he ran well here last year when getting worked up.

I’m hoping the Charlie Hills runner has calmed down now.
