Catherine Zeta-Jones Stands By Husband Michael Douglas Amid Sexual Misconduct Claims

Catherine Zeta-Jones is supporting her husband no matter what.

As we reported last week, after hearing a former employee was shopping around a story, Michael Douglas did an interview with Deadline to preemptively deny her sexual misconduct claims.

The unnamed woman allegedly says the now-73-year-old used colorful and raunchy language in front of (but not at) her, blackballed her from industry jobs after she was fired, and masturbated in front of her. The Basic Instinct star apologized for the first allegation but denies the latter two, saying there is “no truth to it whatsoever.”

On Sunday, Zeta-Jones attended Lifetime’s Television Critics Association press day to promote Cocaine Godmother: The Griselda Blanco Story where she opens up about her spouse’s controversy.

According to quotes obtained by ET Online, the 48-year-old actress said:

“My reaction was that as two people who have been in this business — him longer than me — was that we support #MeToo and the movement more than anybody, anybody — me as a woman, him as a man… And there was no other way than to be preemptive in a story that had to be watched. He did a statement, he did it. I think it’s very clear the way that he stands. I cannot elaborate on something that’s so very personal to him.”

In fact, the Chicago thespian — who attended the 2018 Golden Globes in a black dress — is amazed by all the “changes” that are happening because of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements.

“We’re seeing changes that have taken many years to even be talked about. It’s an amazing time for women, and I really want women to remember how strong we are in numbers. This is going to die down. This is not going to be at the forefront of everyone’s mind forever and ever and we’re going to have to be kind to each other. We can’t ask everyone else to be kind to us unless we’re kind to each other… I have a daughter [14-year-old daughter Carys] and I instill [empowerment] in her every single day.”

Douglas believes the “blogger” accuser is potentially “trying to get a book deal,” or to possibly seek revenge because “her career didn’t go the way she hoped.”

A rendering of the me.mum case and applicator, which exist in working prototype form

Should a woman wish to know if she’s ovulating, she can find out by checking a sample of her saliva for what’s known as luteinizing hormone. Although there are already kits that allow users to check samples “the old-fashioned way,” me.mum reportedly lets them do it quicker and easier – on their smartphone.

Camille Leblanc-Bazinet’s Specialized CrossFit-style Workout for Winter Sports Athletes

Camille Leblanc-Bazinet Trains Red Bull Crashed Ice Athletes

Camille Leblanc-Bazinet didn’t become a CrossFit phenomenon without plenty of hard work. She won the CrossFit Games in 2014, and with that she earned the coveted title of Fittest Woman on Earth—and you don’t get to the top of the CrossFit world without incredible conditioning.

So when Red Bull wanted to treat a few athletes competing in “ice cross downhill,” aka Crashed Ice, to a heavy-duty conditioning workout a few months ahead of Red Bull Crashed Ice: Saint Paul on January 19-20, the company enlisted Leblanc-Bazinet to show them a few moves.

Crashed Ice, by the way, is a ludicrous-sounding sport that involves skating head-to-head against other athletes down a winding ice track with treacherous dips, twists, and turns—so as you might expect, the workout was grueling. In just three stations—the rowing machine, overhead squat, and toes to bar—the athletes had to survive a brutal combination of total-body cardio work, stability-taxing strength, and core muscle endurance. Each move targets a specific aspect of the athletes’ fitness, and the three of them combined makes for a sufficiently challenging WOD.

“I used two movements that demand a lot of core: Overhead squats are extremely demanding for the core, and so are toes to bars,” Leblanc-Bazinet says. “[Overhead squats] require isometric contraction, then [toes to bar] has you going into flexion.” Mixing and matching the exercises helps the athletes reap the benefits of both throughout the workout, she says.

Leblanc-Bazinet paired the two moves with some rowing sprints, which work a key group of muscles for any athlete: the posterior chain.

“Rowing is very demanding on the posterior chain and brings the cardio up, so these three movements demanded three aspects of what those athletes need. You mix them together, and the physiological and mental demand is that much higher.”

Check out the workout below, try it if you dare, and watch the athletes go through Leblanc-Bazinet’s taxing workout here.
