We found the one magazine that’ll still work with Terry Richardson
In the wake of many accusations of sexual harassment levelled at photographer Terry Richardson by models he’s shot, clothing companies and magazines have slowly been distancing themselves from the controversial photographer.
However, Playboy is still on his side – it’s just tapped him to shoot a 100-page spread in an upcoming issue. 100 pages?! That’s basically the entire issue, in our estimate. Guess he had to go somewhere where the models are contractually obliged to get their kit off.
In fact, Terry Richardson and Playboy make perfect partners, don’t you think?

Nadine Gordimer dies at 90
Nobel prize-winning SA novelist Nadine Gordimer has died peacefully in her sleep at the age of 90.
‘She … will be lovingly remembered by her family, friends and literary colleagues. Her son Hugo and daughter Oriane and her caring helpers were with her,’ a statement read.
‘She cared most deeply about South Africa, its culture, its people, and its ongoing struggle to realise its new democracy. Her proudest days were not only when she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1991, but also when she testified at the Delmas Trial in 1986, to contribute to saving the lives of 22 ANC members, all of them accused of treason.’ Her talent will be greatly missed in the South African literary space.

Pistorius’s spokeswoman confirmed that ‘an altercation’ took place.
The club patron, Jared Mortimer, however, claimed that Pistorius acted ‘drunk and very aggressive’.
