Kim Kardashian kisses Kanye West as he surprises her with recreation at EVERY one of her past birthdays at 40th bash

KIM Kardashian was shocked by husband Kanye West and the rest of her family when she unknowingly stepped into an incredible surprise 40th birthday bash.

In typical Kardashian fashion, no expense was spared to celebrate Kim’s big day.

Family matriarch Kris Jenner, 64, planned the pricey soiree along with A-list event guru, Mindy Weiss, but made sure strict COVID-19 guidelines were followed. 

In addition to staff of the event wearing masks, everyone working and attending had to take a coronavirus test prior to entering. 

The SKIMS founder was told she was being taken to a photoshoot and was speechless when she arrived at the Los Angeles venue.

“What the f**k is this?” She asked in the back of the car. 

After she got out of the SUV, a voice over from her dad, the late Robert Kardashian, began playing outside the entrance. 

As a nod to her very first birthday party, a pair of white ponies stood outside the door to greet the birthday girl as she walked in. 

“I would cry but I am so in shock. And don’t want to ruin my makeup,” the stunned reality star said as she walked into the bash.

The mom-of-four admitted the second she heard her father’s voice, she “knew what was going on.” 

“This isn’t a photoshoot,” Kim exclaimed as she walked into a room of her closest family and friends waiting. 

Kim – who stunned in a skintight shimmering gold dress – walked right into her husbands arms.

“Oh my god you’re here? This is why I couldn’t find you,” she exclaimed to Kanye during the big reveal.

Hotel on Upper West Side Gets New Life for Senior Housing

(Bloomberg) — A former illegal hotel on Manhattan’s Upper West Side will begin a gut renovation this week, transforming into something quite different than the luxury condos that are a staple in the well-heeled neighborhood.

Load Error

The Park 79, a seven-story building down the block from the Museum of Natural History, will be remade into housing for senior citizens with limited incomes. The developers have signed an agreement with the city’s housing department to keep the apartments — in an area where new condos sell at a median of $3.39 million — affordable for at least the next 60 years.

“Opportunities like this rarely, if ever, come around,” said Will Blodgett, founding partner of Fairstead, a Manhattan-based residential investor that owns 12,000 units nationwide.

Located at 117 W. 79th St., the building was once a single-room occupancy residence that was shut down by the city after the previous owners illegally operated it as a tourist hotel. Fairstead acquired the property in 2016 for $22.5 million.

Now, the builder has secured the financing to move forward with the plan, closing on a $51 million construction loan from Merchants Capital and a $28.4 million commitment from Freddie Mac. Project costs will be offset through the use of affordable housing tax credits.

Housing Lottery

Residents for the 77 units will be selected through a city housing lottery, with the apartments renting for $550 to $700 a month. The building will feature spaces for socializing and Zumba classes, according to David Gillcrist, executive director of Project FIND, an operator of senior housing that is a partner on the development.

The project is an unusual turn for a neighborhood where development sites get snapped up at top dollar by builders aiming for the wealthiest buyers. Even senior housing in the area has hewed to that model: developers Hines and Welltower Inc. are planning a luxury assisted-living project on West 85th Street, similar to one they’re opening next month on Manhattan’s East Side, where monthly rents could top $20,000.

“Many people can’t afford the $20,000 a month,” Blodgett said. “I would argue the services our residents are going to get are just as good.”

Hundreds Of Homeless Can Remain At Upper West Side Hotel For Now

UPPER WEST SIDE, NY — The plight of hundreds of homeless men currently being housed at The Lucerne remains fluid after a judge on Monday sided with three hotel residents and temporarily blocked an effort by Mayor Bill de Blasio to move the men to another location in Lower Manhattan.

The city was scheduled to start transferring 235 men to the site of a former Radisson hotel Monday morning before Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Debra James found in favor of three of the men, who filed a lawsuit against de Blasio and Department of Homeless Services Commissioner Steven Banks last week blocking the move , the New York Post reported.

The men — Larry Thomas, Ramone Buford and Travis Trammell — filed the suit, saying that forcing them to be moved from The Lucerne to the Lower Manhattan location on William Street would cause “massive psychological damage”. James’ decision came less than a week after she ruled against a group of Lower Manhattan residents that were attempting to keep the Lucerne residents from being moved to their neighborhood.

James’ decision allows the homeless men to remain at The Lucerne until the mater is again heard in court.

Despite the halt in Monday’s scheduled moved, a de Blasio spokesman said that the city still plans to prevail in its plans and said lawyers representing the city would appear in court to continue ahead with the plans to move the homeless out of The Lucerne.

“In the meantime, we will continue our efforts to best support all New Yorkers currently experiencing homelessness,” spokesman Bill Neidhardt said Monday, The Post reported.

The continued battle comes more than two months after de Blasio announced plans in September to move the hundreds of men out of The Lucerne property. In August, Patch reported that 311 complaints surged in the Upper West Side after the homeless men were moved into The Lucerne on July 27.

The hotel, which sits on West 79th Street and Amsterdam Avenue, is one of three hotels in the area that is currently receiving homeless clients as the coronavirus pandemic continues. Between the three hotels, more than 500 homeless people are being sheltered in the neighborhood, which has drawn the ire of Upper West Side residents who complain that of the activity that takes place outside of The Lucerne by homeless people being sheltered at the hotel.

The Lucerne residents counter with saying they depend on the social services and medical assistance they receive by staying at the hotel.

In the lawsuit, Buford said that he represents a group of homeless men who the 51-year-old former musician said would not be welcome in the Financial District, The Post reported. The affidavit said that with the exception of the Upper West Side neighbors who have threatened to sue the city over the presence of the homeless being sheltered at The Lucerne, most people have been friendly.

“One of the traumas of being homeless is being un-welcomed,” he said in the paperwork

City plans for men being relocated from Lucerne Hotel on Upper West Side include cruel twist

More than 200 homeless men whom the city plans to relocate from an Upper West Side hotel to another hotel Downtown will have to enter their new digs through a side entrance in a pub, of all places, the Daily News has learned.

A homeless resident and a local activist supporting the men — some of whom are in recovery for substance abuse — were shocked to learn of the plan when they visited the new site last week.

“I’m in recovery and I’m OK, but don’t put me in a bar. It just psychologically is triggering,” Shams DeBaron told The News. “I said, this makes no sense at all when there’s [another] entrance over there.”

It’s the latest twist in a saga that began when the city moved thousands of homeless men out of group shelters during the peak of the coronavirus outbreak, relocating them to temporary hotels.

When a group of Upper West Side residents threatened last month to sue the city over the placement of some homeless men in the Lucerne Hotel on W. 79th St., Mayor de Blasio quickly caved, deciding to shuffle the men to a Radisson in the Financial District. The Department of Homeless Services was expected to bus the men from the Lucerne to the Radisson, located on William St., on Monday morning.

Shams and local activist Stephanie Tchuente learned of the plans to have the men enter through a bar, instead of the Radisson’s main entrance, last Thursday.

DHS staff conducting a site walk-through told the duo that to enter the hotel, the homeless men will have to go through the nearby Bailey Pub & Brasserie, undergo a metal detector check there and then use a back door leading into the Radisson.

While the pub is closed for business, a bar including beer taps was visible during the visit, according to Shams and Tchuente, who co-founded a group of FiDi residents working to support their prospective new neighbors.

“They did say they would block [the bar], but didn’t give any details as to how much would be seen or unseen,” Tchuente said of DHS staff. “On all fronts, the city has completely messed it up.”

DHS spokesman Isaac McGinn said Shams and Tchuente’s account was “inaccurate,” but didn’t specify what they got wrong or immediately answer a request for clarification.

“The so-called ‘main’ entrance … is too narrow and does not provide sufficient space to implement our standard comprehensive security screening,” he stated. “A second entrance provides sufficient space to implement these required measures, including standard comprehensive security screening as well as implementation of best health practices, like social distancing.”

“There is

Travel: Redesigned boutique hotel now open in West Lafayette | Lifestyles – Travel

Throughout the hotel are Boilermaker touches, including the school crest embedded into carpeting in the public spaces and on pillows in the rooms, historic photos hanging above the beds and tartan prints. The lobby has a very cool bookcase design above the front desk with rotating black and white photos projected onto it, and there are several cozy nooks to have a seat and relax. I love the stylish room decor and luxurious in-room touches like comfy robes, Pharmacopia products (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion) and Caribou Coffee. Rooms feature WiFi, mini fridges and large flatscreen TVs.

We took a walk on the second floor beyond the hotel into the Purdue Memorial Union, which has stunning architectural features and busts of past presidents, along with an information desk with campus maps and information on the area.

Within the hotel are three dining options, and my husband and I had the opportunity to experience each one while we were there. A little bit after checking in we had a reservation for dinner at 8Eleven, the hotel’s full-service restaurant that is named to honor two NASA missions: Gemini 8 and Apollo 11 — both commanded by Purdue alumnus Neil Armstrong. Described as their “refined and sophisticated gathering spot,” the French-American bistro has an open kitchen concept and an impressive menu.

It was difficult making a decision on what to order. We started with oysters and gulf shrimp cocktail, and it was immediately apparent that everything is top-quality. For entrees, we decided on the halibut with heirloom tomatoes, fennel, lemon and sweet pepper and that evening’s special, the Filet Oscar — a medium filet mignon with lump crab, covered in Hollandaise sauce over asparagus. It was phenomenal, and our meal earned a spot as one of my favorite eateries in the state. I never expected to enjoy seafood that good in a small Midwest college town.

Les Miles won’t travel with Kansas for West Virginia game after being cleared from his positive COVID-19 test

Kansas coach Les Miles will not travel with his team for Saturday’s Week 7 game at West Virginia. In a Friday statement, Kansas said that Miles has been cleared to travel to Morgantown, but he’s opted not to out of caution. Miles just completed his 10-day isolation window after it was announced on Oct. 8 that he tested positive for COVID-19.

“While my 10-day isolation window was completed this morning, there is too much still unknown about this virus for me to feel 100 percent confident that I won’t transmit it to someone who comes into close contact with me on the team charter, hotel or at the game Saturday,” Miles said in a statement. “As we continue to work our way through this pandemic, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our players, coaches and staff that make up this great team. As the head coach, it is up to me to set the right example for our student-athletes, and that is what I am doing with this decision by not traveling with the team.”

Assistant coach Josh Eagle will coach the Jayhawks against the Mountaineers. 

Miles is the fifth coach to publicly test positive for the coronavirus since the season began. Alabama’s Nick Saban, Florida State’s Mike Norvell, Arkansas State’s Blake Anderson and Arizona’s Kevin Sumlin have all tested positive. Saban’s positive test comes ahead of the Crimson Tide’s prime time showdown with Georgia — by far carrying the biggest game implications since Week 1.

Les Miles won’t coach vs. West Virginia

Kansas coach Les Miles is able to travel with the Jayhawks to West Virginia for Saturday’s game but is choosing to stay in Lawrence.

Miles announced last week that he had tested positive for coronavirus. He’s been cleared to travel with the team but doesn’t want to take any chances with the virus.

“[Thursday] I received clearance from Kansas Team Health to travel with our football team to Morgantown,” Miles said in a statement. “I am very grateful for the high level of care that I have received throughout my time since I tested positive for COVID-19 early last week. I continue to feel healthy and strong, and was fortunate to only have mild symptoms.”

“However, after much consideration and several in-depth conversations with the medical team, our coaching staff, and Kansas Athletics administration, I have made the difficult decision to not make the trip to West Virginia. While my 10-day isolation window was completed this morning, there is too much still unknown about this virus for me to feel 100 percent confident that I won’t transmit it to someone who comes into close contact with me on the team charter, hotel or at the game Saturday.”

Miles, 66, was the fourth coach to publicly reveal an in-season positive COVID-19 test when he said he had tested positive. Alabama coach Nick Saban became the fifth on Wednesday when he said that he had tested positive for the virus. Saban is set to be at home for No. 2 Alabama’s game vs. No. 3 Georgia on Saturday.

Kansas said that assistant coach Josh Eargle would coach the Jayhawks in Miles’ absence. Kansas team doctor Larry Magee said in a statement that Miles would be rejoining the team on Sunday.

Miles is in his second season coaching the Jayhawks. Kansas is 0-3 in 2020 and is a three-touchdown underdog to the Mountaineers.

In addition to Miles and Saban, Florida State’s Mike Norvell, Arkansas State’s Blake Anderson and Arizona’s Kevin Sumlin have said they tested positive for the virus since the 2020 college football season began over Labor Day weekend. Norvell has been the only coach to miss a game because of a coronavirus diagnosis, though that will change on Saturday.

Kansas Jayhawks coach Les Miles won’t travel to West Virginia Mountaineers game

Kansas Jayhawks coach Les Miles, who announced on Oct. 8 that he had tested positive for the coronavirus, will not travel with the team to West Virginia for Saturday’s game, it was announced Friday.

Miles, 66, said he was cleared to travel, but “after much consideration and several in-depth conversations with the medical team, our coaching staff, and Kansas Athletics administration,” he made the decision not to make the trip.

Joshua Eargle will serve as the Jayhawks’ interim coach against the Mountaineers.

Miles, who continued to handle his head-coaching responsibilities remotely while isolating at home, said his 10-day quarantine ended Friday morning. The university said Miles experienced only minor symptoms during that time.

“There is too much still unknown about this virus for me to feel 100% confident that I won’t transmit it to someone who comes into close contact with me on the team charter, hotel or at the game Saturday,” Miles said in his statement.

“As we continue to work our way through this pandemic, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our players, coaches and staff that make up this great team. As the head coach, it is up to me to set the right example for our student-athletes, and that is what I am doing with this decision by not traveling with the team.”

Miles told his coaching staff and players of his decision Friday morning.

Eargle has previous head coaching experience at East Texas Baptist University. He’s currently the Jayhawks’ tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator.
