Greetings, LDIO readers. This week my thoughts are with the victims of Hurricane Harvey and the city of Houston. If you live in Houston or have loved ones in the area, my heart goes out to you. If you wish to donate to relief efforts, this article provides some good starting points.

Moving on to the news, this week a source claimed Ruby Rose might quit Hollywood, Stella Maxwell flaunted her Victoria’s Secret angel wings on the streets of NYC, and Kristen Stewart danced to Beyoncé for Chanel. Lez get to it!

Is Ruby Rose Quitting Hollywood?

Ring the alarm Ruby fans: the celesbian might be moving on from Hollywood.

According to the Australian publication Now To Love, Ms. Rose is allegedly exhausted after completing a bunch of film projects (Pitch Perfect 3Orange is the New Black, xXx: Return of Xander CageJohn Wick: Chapter 2) and she reportedly wants to take an extended break from acting.

A source close to the actress told the outlet:

She’s burnt out and wants to head home. Quitting Hollywood is the one thing she can smile about right now.”

The insider added:

“Ruby’s trying to have a fun life, not a busy one. And she loves the idea of hanging out on the beach more than waiting around on a set. She’s had some insane money offers, but she’s turned them all down. The conditions weren’t right and she’s tired as hell.”

Well, all of that sounds reasonable to me. I wouldn’t be surprised if Rose takes a few years off before returning to acting… I don’t necessarily see her quitting for good.

P.S. Take a look at Ruby enjoying some downtime with her girlfriend Jessica Origliasso in China:

In other Ruby news, it looks like the star received some backlash for donating 1oK to an LGBTQ Disaster Relief Fund in Houston following Hurricane Harvey (check out the fund HERE).

The fund states on its website:

“The catastrophic and historic impact of Hurricane Harvey will be felt by the LGBTQ community of Houston Texas for days, months, and potentially years to come. Help our LGBTQ community members displaced by the storm today by giving to the LGBTQ Disaster Relief Fund, managed by the Montrose Center – Houston’s LGBTQ counseling and community center serving Houston for 39 years. With more than 35,000 clients in core programs we are already learning of staff and community members who have lost everything. The LGBTQ Disaster Relief Fund will be used to help individuals and families begin to rebuild their lives through counseling, case management, direct assistance with shelf stable food, furniture, housing and more. The Center’s dedicated case management team is on call to help homeless youth, seniors, people living with HIV, hate crime survivors, and those devastated by the storm.”

Apparently, this did NOT sit well with some fans and Rose had to address the NONSENSE controversy on Twitter.

I think Rose did a great job of explaining the situation and diverting attention to the victims of this catastrophe.
