Hallmark's Winterfest Lineup: What to Watch After Countdown to Christmas
Countdown to Christmas is just getting started, but Hallmark is already planning for 2021. The network announced next year’s lineup for Winterfest, the winter-themed movies set to air after the holidays are over — beginning right after New Year’s Day. Despite the global pandemic, Crown Media still managed to put out 40 new films as part of their Countdown to Christmas lineup, with 23 debuting on the Hallmark Channel and 17 on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. This year, the network also featured their first LGBTQ relationship in one of their holiday movies, as Jonathan Bennett and Brad Harder played a married couple looking to adopt in The Christmas House, which also starred Treat Williams, Sharon Lawrence, Robert Buckley and Ana Ayora. “Our holiday table is bigger and more welcoming than ever. This year’s movies reflect our most diverse representation of talent, narratives, and families, including The Christmas House, featuring a story line about a gay couple looking to adopt their first child,” EVP of Programming Michelle Vicary said in a statement in September. “Our movies are rooted in warmth and positivity, meaningful connections, family gatherings, and seasonal traditions — a winning formula we hope will bring our millions of viewers much-needed levity and holiday cheer at the end of a tough year.” The Christmas movie lineup also introduced new names into the Hallmark family, including Jeremy Jordan, Marisol Nichols, Mallory Jansen, Lucia Micarelli, Aaron Tveit, Krystal Joy Brown, Victoria Clark, Tom McGowan, Alvina August, Janel Parrish, Rochelle Aytes, Ronnie Rowe Jr. and Nazneen Contractor.

Larsa Pippen’s Dating History: Scottie Pippen, Future and More
Playing the dating game! Larsa Pippen has found herself in many high-profile relationships over the years. Pippen’s longest and most notable romance began in the 1990s when she started dating Scottie Pippen. After tying the knot in 1997, the duo went on to welcome four children together: Scotty Jr., Preston, Justin and Sophia. (Scottie also has three other children from previous relationships.) While the longtime couple announced their separation in 2015, they reconciled in 2017. They then split for good in 2018 when Larsa filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.” The Real Housewives of Miami alum opened up about how she has succeeded in coparenting her children alongside Scottie. “[We] are really best friends,” she told Us Weekly exclusively in 2019. “Our kids are amazing, and I feel like we both parent the same way. We’re really traditional in the way we raise our children. That’s really important.” Larsa added, “We are obsessed with our kids. Scottie and I are both the same in a lot of ways. Family always comes first.” In addition to being with the former Chicago Bulls player, Larsa has been linked to Future and Eric Moreland. However, her most buzzed-about relationship since splitting from Scottie came in late 2020 when she was linked to Malik Beasley. When Larsa stepped out in Miami with the Minnesota Timberwolves player in November 2020, the pair were photographed holding hands and linking arms. Nearly one month before their first sighting, Beasley dropped a flirty comment on one of her Instagram selfies, which read: “I just want to take you on a date and treat you like a queen.” Beasley’s wife, Montana Yao, responded to the photos with complete shock. “Wow … I don’t even know this man,” she wrote on her Instagram Story in December 2020. “This is wild y’all I’m seeing it for the first time just like y’all.” The model added that “the truth always comes out one way or another,” and Larsa subsequently appeared to respond to Yao’s remarks on her Instagram Story with a statement that read: “Don’t always trust what you see on social media. Even salt looks like sugar.” Yao, who welcomed a son with Beasley in 2019, reportedly filed for divorce shortly after.

Getting into the holiday spirit! Leave it to Hollywood’s biggest stars to go above and beyond when decorating their homes for the holiday season. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi got an early start at prepping her home the day after Halloween. The 32-year-old Jersey Shore alum shared a photo of herself surrounded by Christmas decorations as she hugged a miniature Santa Claus statue. “FINALLY ,” she captioned her pic. The reality star shared an Instagram Story video that provided a glimpse at how she transformed her fireplace for the holidays with stockings, string lights and ornaments. In a separate Instagram Story post, Polizzi defended her decision to put up her Christmas decor early each year. “The kids love preparing for Santa an extra month. We are all happier people sitting around the tree and watching Christmas movies. The pandemic is depressing, Christmas is my savior,” she wrote. “My kids realize once the decorations go up, we clean out the playroom and donate most of their toys for kids in need during the holidays. I’m in love with Santa. Christmas goes too fast for just one month. Spread the joy. Stop being Scrooge’s and let us early Christmas people live.” Like Polizzi, January Jones also began decorating her home on November 1. The Mad Men alum, 42, took to Instagram to share a photo of her progress so far, which included a fireplace lined with stockings as well as a plush Santa Claus and snowman. She also shared a pic of her fully decorated Christmas tree. “Nov 1st. (judge away),” she captioned her pic, in which she posed while holding on to a miniature statue of Santa. Tan France, for his part, proudly displayed his holiday set-up via Instagram on November 1 as well. The 37-year-old Queer Eye star posted a photo of himself sitting in front his exquisitely decorated Christmas tree. “10 year Halloween tradition. Christmas Tree goes up,” he wrote. “Haters back off!! .” Scroll down to see how other celebrities are preparing their homes for the holidays!
