So did you take lessons? I should have. If I were a serious actor, I probably would have, but I just kind of showed up like, “Here you go, guys!” But it was the most fun I’ve had in my adult life. What do you like doing on a day off? I’ll just go on a long bike ride and maybe do some reading. I’m boring like that. And then hit a rave, of course. [Laughs.] Today I’m probably going to go to three raves; that’s a slow day for me. How have you stayed grounded in Hollywood? Because of my family and where and how I grew up. I’ve always known how blessed I am. —JULIE JORDAN

‘I hate it when people say, “You look good for your age.” It should be, “You look good.” Period. Getting older is a good thing.’
Had you played hockey before the role? Oh no. I’m pretty awful on skates. In the second movie—thank God—I’m better, but hockey is the one sport I didn’t play growing up.

PRINCE WILLIAM & PRINCESS KATE
GETTING READY FOR BABY NO. 3! BY SIMON PERRY
WHEN PRINCESS KATE joined her husband, Prince William, and brother-in-law Prince Harry at a newly designed memorial garden for Princess Diana on Aug. 30, she did so with her signature poise and polish. Just ﬁve days later, however, she was so sick she couldn’t leave her Kensington Palace home. The cause: hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), the same severe morning sickness she battled during her ﬁrst two pregnancies. The debilitating condition forced her to bow out of a planned Sept. 4 engagement— and announce the news that, yes, she and William are expecting their 28
September 18, 2017 PEOPLE
“We will just have to have more babies!” Kate (at the garden honoring Diana on Aug. 30) said in July when a fan gave her a plush toy. Inset: William, Kate, George and Charlotte on July 19.
‘I’M SURE KATE IS IN SAFE HANDS ... EVERYBODY AROUND HERE IS HAPPY FOR THEM AND WISHES THEM GOOD LUCK’ —A LOCAL IN KATE’S HOMETOWN OF BUCKLEBURY
third child. “The Queen and members of both families are delighted,” the Palace announced. The news comes as the royal parents, both 35, kick off a new chapter: This summer they shifted their home base from Anmer Hall in rural Norfolk to London as William commits to fulltime royal duties following the end of his civilian job as an air-ambulance pilot. And a car ride through London traffic from Kensington Palace,
4-year-old Prince George is starting school at the private Thomas’s Battersea, where tuition runs $23,000 a year, while 2-year-old Princess Charlotte is expected to begin preschool soon. For Kate, whose pregnancy is not yet 12 weeks along, HG is a sadly familiar challenge. Palace sources tell People that although she has some official outings in the pipeline, none have been announced. Decisions about them—and her planned overseas tour with William in November—will be “taken on a case-by-case basis,” a royal source adds. (During her pregnancy with Charlotte, she wasn’t seen at a public engagement for about ﬁve weeks after her announcement.) For friends of Kate, who is the oldest of three close-knit siblings, and William, it was not a question of if but when they would add to their family— though Kate last year teasingly told those close to her that she “could do with a break” before a third. Now that break is over, and joyful locals are already celebrating in n Kate’s family village of Bucklebury, y, where her parents Carole and Michael Middleton live. “Carole’s a very close grandmother, so she and d Michael will be beaming from ear to ear,” says one resident, adding that No. 3 may not be the last. “I reckon Kate will try to emulate thee Queen and have four!”
What Is Hyperemesis Gravidarum? A life-threatening condition, HG is rare (affecting fewer than 2 percent of pregnant women) and has no cure. Symptoms include extreme nausea and vomiting, which can lead to hospitalization for dehydration. Anti-nausea medications and IV fluids are often used to treat patients, and women who battle the condition are likely to do so in subsequent pregnancies. “It’s quite a scary prospect knowing you’re going to put yourself through that again,” says Caitlin Dean, head of the U.K. group Pregnancy Sickness Support, who battled HG. “For me and my husband that was a huge decision: Not so much ‘Let’s have a third kid,’ but ‘Can we go through HG again?’” Beyond early treatment Dean recommends advance preparation at home. “The average woman doesn’t have the life Kate has, with people to cook and clean and look after their children,” she says. “For regular women, that preparation is absolutely key.”

Bill Skarsgård wasn’t born yet when Stephen King wrote It, but he remembers his older brothers, including True Blood star Alexander, warning him about “the scary clown called Pennywise” when he was a child. Now 27, Bill, one of Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård’s eight children, is terrifying moviegoers in the new bigscreen version (see review, page 43). “I was really excited to do a full character transformation, something so far away from who I am,” he says. Even after filming, Pennywise haunted his nightmares for weeks. But with a sequel in the works, he admits, “I’m really looking forward to getting back under the clown makeup.” —MICHAEL MILLER

Fans of ABC’s The Bachelor watched you and Nick Viall get engaged on last season’s finale in March. Last month you announced your breakup. How are you doing? I fell in love hard, and when you fall in love that hard, your heart breaks even harder. Every part of you gets shattered. I’m trying to pick up the pieces, and know it’s okay to grieve the loss and cry and curl up under the covers. I’ve done all of those things. Was there a turning point for you when you realized it wasn’t working? The distance wasn’t ever an issue. We tried really hard, but in the end we just realized we were different people fighting to keep a relationship when we just weren’t the best fit for each other. I came home the minute we decided to split and have been leaning on friends and family. What have you learned from the experience? Letting go of the idea of what could’ve been isn’t easy. But I hope he finds his happily ever after. I’ve learned a lot about staying true to yourself despite all the noise and pressure. I’m also trying to stay optimistic about the future and remember that one day the person that I’m meant to be with and start a family with—when the timing is right—we will find our way to each other. It will always be okay in the end.

Legend and Teigen (on the go with Luna in June) recently took their first baby-free getaway to Saint-Tropez for “Mommy and Daddy time,” says the singer.
Since he settled down with wife Chrissy Teigen and welcomed daughter Luna in 2016, a lot has changed for the superstar singer, including his life on the road. “This was my ﬁrst tour with Luna,” says Legend, 38, who had a crib and diaper station installed on his tour bus. “It’s very different from my days on tour with Kanye when we were, like, 25 years old.” The face of Axe’s Find Your Magic campaign, Legend is now part of an initiative to counter toxic masculinity among young men. He says he has always been seen as the nice guy (“I was a church boy, good grades, student body president....

Gwendoline Christie is many things—confident, earthy, given to uproarious laughter—but the thing people get stuck on is that she is, at 6'3", far taller than most people in Hollywood, male or female. “It’s not something I think too much about,” the English actress, 38, says of her height, though she indulges people when they (endlessly) remark upon it. “I hope it helps change people’s perceptions of what beauty is,” she says. “I think my size, or the roles that I’ve been lucky enough to play, have helped people see a broader definition of femininity. It’s important that all kinds of people are represented onscreen.” While Christie is grateful for the recent powerful roles that have made her globally famous (the sword-wielding warrior maiden Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones and the sinister Captain Phasma in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and its upcoming sequel The Last Jedi), it’s her newest job playing a rookie detective in Top of the Lake: China Girl that has given her the first opportunity to be vulnerable. “She fails at everything,” Christie says of her awkward character, who is paired with Det. Robin Griffin, played by her good friend Elisabeth Moss, as they investigate the murder of a young girl. “She’s on the margins and not capable—so unlike so many of the parts I’ve played. She’s not a hero. It gets very dark.” She smiles and adds, “I cannot tell you how fun this story was to tell.” —J.D. HEYMAN

The Stephen King classic has a terrifying monster No. and heartwarming kids HORROR The clown lobby is facing challenging days ahead in defending its happy-face image. (A giveaway of red balloons, by the way, will be counterproductive.) The problem’s name is Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård). The childmurdering demon-clown, the blood-dripping heart of this new ﬁlm of Stephen King’s 1986 magnum opus It, has the crazed, pinprick eyes of Jack Nicholson in The Shining; the giggling malice of Beetlejuice; the cracked, ancientbaby voice of a Gollum—and row upon row of sharp Alien teeth. His special prey are a group of unpopular small-town tweens (notably Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard and the wonderful Sophia Lillis). He susses out the things that creep them out— clowns, anyone?—and goes in for the kill. The surprise here (and it’s a nice, even touching one) is that you end up rooting for these losers—a funny, resilient gang of kids by way of Stand by Me—more than you fear Pennywise. What is he, after all? A bit of a bozo. (Sept. 8, R)

Here was an age when carnal experience was dangerous, dirty and properly obscene: not nude images to be swiped through on a mobile device. Franco (a very good actor when he stops kidding around) is cast as twins falling on either side of the law, and the great Gyllenhaal is a prostitute venturing into porn ﬁlms.

“It didn’t take long for them to get acclimated,” says Madonna of her twins, who star in her latest Instagram posts. “They’re little show-offs.” PEO OPLE E Sep Septem ptember b ber 18 18,, 2017 2017 7
M Makeup-free and wearing sweatpants, Madonna steps into her London home office with minimal fanfare. As she carefully slurps tea from an overﬂowing cup while the faint sound of children playing comes from a nearby room, little about her announces the arrival of a legend. This is Madonna the mother, or “Mambo,” as the four youngest of her six children affectionately call her. The differences between the Queen of Pop and Mambo are immediately apparent. Mambo forgoes couture for a holey black hoodie and sneakers. Mambo burns wood-scented candles and stocks her powder room with an air freshener. (Six kids mean even the most spacious townhouse sees plenty of activity.) And most of all, Mambo hugs. She proudly displays photos of her family throughout the house, which—given that this is a woman who once wrote a book devoted to and titled Sex—is jarringly normal, with nary a cone-shaped bra in sight. Recently two new smiling faces have joined the collection of framed portraits in her office. Already mom to daughter Lourdes “Lola” Leon, 20 (with former ﬂame Carlos Leon), and Rocco Ritchie, 17 (with ex-husband Guy Ritchie), the singer in February adopted orphaned twins Estere and Stella from Malawi, the same African country from which she adopted son David Banda and daughter Mercy James, both 11. “I’m just their mother,” says the star, 59, of her youngest daughters, now 5. Their mother also happens to be the highest-selling female artist of all time—not that her little girls know...or care. “They don’t have a clue!” Madonna says, noting that her 1983 hit “Holiday” played at dinner recently, and big brother David tried to explain the song was performed by none other than their mom. No luck. “They were like, ‘Huh?’” she says, laughing. Animated fare is more their speed. “First it was Moana, now their favorite movie is Sing—they’re obsessed with it,” Madonna says. “We sing ‘I’m Still Standing’ all day long.” Their mom, of course, knows a lot about standing strong. Before adopting David in 2008, she founded Raising Malawi, an organization that aims to educate and support health services for children of the impoverished country. But she has also braved international public scrutiny over her adoptions as well as major setbacks with projects in-country over the years. Reﬂecting on the thousands of children she’s helped, and how the experience has enriched her own family, the star has no regrets. “It’s so worth it,” she says. On July 11 Madonna invited People to join her in Blantyre, Malawi, for the opening of the Mercy James Centre for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, the country’s ﬁrst-ever children’s hospital (see side-

Madonna met Estere and her twin sister, Stella, at Home of Hope, the same orphanage in Malawi from which she adopted David.
“They’re amazing,” Madonna says of the twins, who prefer living in New York City over rainy London. “It’s like they were always here.”
“That’s the crib I met him in,” Madonna says of her son, who once feared going back. “Now they feel a sense of responsibility and connection.”
Madonna named the hospital after her daughter (at the opening ceremony). To adopt her, “I had to fight and never gave up—I felt the same way about the hospital.”
“They’ve learned, in time, that I’m their mother, and nothing is going to change that,” says the star of keeping her kids connected to Malawi.

bar). Rocco painted a mural in the ward, David performed a hip-hop dance with boys from a local school for orphans, and Mercy—the building’s namesake—delivered a moving speech. (Lourdes had a dance workshop at college, “but she was there in spirit!” Madonna says.) “I want my kids to be loving, decent, compassionate human beings. I try to set a good example,” she says. “But it’s been a roller-coaster ride.” The entertainer—who was raised in Bay City, Mich., by her widower father, Silvio Ciccone, after her mom, also named Madonna, died when she was just 5—ﬁrst got the itch to give back about 12 years ago while in the midst of a career renaissance with her hit album Confessions on a Dance Floor. At the time she felt something was missing. Living in L.A. with Lourdes and Rocco, “I remember thinking, ‘I have so much, and I don’t feel like I’m doing enough,’” she recalls. Soon after, she was put in touch with Victoria Keelan, a Malawian woman who explained the country’s dire situation: “The 58

There were not enough beds for bodies, everyone was emaciated, and people were dying—of AIDS, of malaria, of malnutrition,” says Madonna, who launched Raising Malawi after that ﬁrst trip. “I had children, and I was looking at all these kids who were going to become orphans or already were.” She met David as a baby battling pneumonia and malaria at an orphanage in the capital city of Lilongwe and soon began the adoption process, but when she brought him home in May 2008, “every newspaper said I kidnapped him,” says Madonna. “In my mind I was thinking, ‘Wait a minute. I’m trying to save somebody’s life. Why are you all s----ing on me right now?’ I did everything by the book. That was a real low point for me. I would cry myself to sleep.” Still, her joy at having David conquered even her darkest days—another gift from Malawi.

The Jacaranda School for Orphans’ choir sang for Madonna (with daughter Estere) at the opening of the hospital (inset) on July 11.
HOW MADONNA IS RAISING MALAWI According to Global Finance Magazine, the southeast African nation of Malawi is the sixthpoorest country in the world. Since she launched her Raising Malawi charity in 2006, Madonna’s goal for the people of Malawi has been simple: “I want to help them help themselves,” she says. The new Mercy James Centre is a primary example of that, as the hospital doubles as a teaching facility. “It will have a huge impact and create something sustainable,” says Dr. Eric Borgstein, one of only four pediatric surgeons in the country, who teamed with the star to establish the hospital. Though Madonna has donated millions to Raising Malawi’s efforts, friends say she is more than a mere fund-raiser. “She is engaged on a daily basis in a way that people who just write checks are not,” says adviser Trevor Neilson, who has helped the star manage Raising Malawi for six years. “There’s no person like Madonna who has ever done something as complex as she has just done with the hospital. She is tough, smart and extremely committed to this country.”
“When you go places where people have nothing, you see how people are still managing to smile and be happy with the simplest thing, and you feel like a greedy, selﬁsh pig for ever complaining about anything,” she says. “You think, ‘Am I here to help you, or are you helping me?’” Even more difficult was adopting Mercy,whowasbedriddenwithmalaria when Madonna met her at an orphanage in Blantyre. By then divorced from Ritchie, she was told by Malawian officials “I was not capable of raising a child,” recalls the singer, who split from the filmmaker in 2008. She successfully challenged the refusal in Malawi’s supreme court and brought Mercy home in June 2009. As for what drew her to her children: “It’s inexplicable. It’s like saying, ‘Why do you fall in love with the people you fall in love with?’” she says. “You look into the eyes of somebody, you feel their soul, you feel touched by them— that’s it.” It was the same magic with Estere and Stella after she met them 21⁄2 years ago. This time she spoke to her kids about expanding the family 60

once more. “Mercy and David were excited,’” she says. For her older kids, “there might have been [a feeling of] ‘Oh, we have to share you with more people’—not jealousy, but an adjustment,” she says. “Eventually everyone was supportive. Lola said, ‘Mom, if that’s what you want and it’s going to make you happy, let’s go.’” When asked if she’ll adopt again, “I never say never— about anything,” says Madonna, “but I have my hands full, mostly with my oldest children right now.” Lourdes is in her senior year of college, and Rocco is living primarily with his dad in London after the exes waged a headline-making custody battle last year. “I had this funny notion that when your children get older, they learn to take care of themselves and it gets easier,” she says. “But actually the older they get, the more challenging it gets—because now they’re becoming adults, and they really need guidance.” The star admits one of her biggest challenges as a mom remains coparenting. Her philosophy? “I’m in charge! I’m the boss!” she says with a laugh. More seriously: “Lola has a different father than Rocco, and I have four adopted kids, so there’s a lot of outside inﬂuences. I’m trying to make sure I impart the same wisdom and love to everyone. I’m bad-cop. I’m the one that says no,” adds the singer, who says David and Mercy don’t have phones yet (even though “their friends all do”). “I accept that role. I’m not the popular parent.” 62

‘EVERYONE IS DOING WHAT THEY CAN’
September 18, 2017 PEOPLE
Hurricane Harvey made landfall near the greater Houston area on Aug. 25, dropping a record-breaking 27 trillion gallons of water in just days, damaging an estimated 46,000 homes and leaving at least 60 dead. Three days later, as the floodwaters were rising rapidly, Katy, Texas, resident Trey Hamblet got a call from a neighbor who needed to evacuate. “I have access to a large flatbed dump truck, so I went and got them,” says the industrial-projects researcher. But he didn’t stop there. Using his boat, Hamblet has helped dozens of neighbors escape the floodwaters and is now ferrying them in and out as they salvage what’s left of their possessions. “I’m not the only one,” says Hamblet, 46. “Everyone is doing what they can to help. It’s inspiring.”

THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS
Madelaine Pfahler, 48, and her family have never been so grateful to so many strangers. After barely escaping the floodwaters in their house by climbing a ladder over their back fence, they were taken in by neighbors they’d never met. Then, days later, as Pfahler sifted through the remains of her ravaged home, two women she’d never seen before showed up in her front yard to help clean up. They worked for hours and returned the next day with their husbands—and a dozen others who are all part of a Houston men’s workout group called F3 (for fitness, fellowship and faith) that has taken to the streets to help people with cleanup and demolition. “I don’t know what we would have done without F3,” says Pfahler. “The generosity of strangers has been beyond amazing.”

As Harvey’s floodwaters continued to rise on Aug. 26, Lutheran South Academy’s head of school, Sheila Psencik, 44, never thought twice about opening her pre-K-12 campus to 150 grateful storm victims seeking refuge. But by the next morning, water had filled LSA’s halls and gymnasium and it was Psencik’s turn to ask for help. “I wasn’t sure anyone would show up,” she says. Instead 500 volunteers from the surrounding area arrived armed with shovels and mops— ready to pitch in. “There were people who lost their homes and vehicles,” says Psencik. “But they still came to help. This is a horrible situation, but it’s made us stronger as a community.”

But post-Harvey, the organization has shifted its focus to helping the tens of thousands of animals displaced by the flooding. “People don’t have a place to put their pets—they don’t have a place for themselves,” says Pets Alive! founder Andrea Birkelbach, 33. It took Birkelbach’s team a day to convert a flooded bank into a shelter where pet owners can temporarily (or, in some sad cases, permanently) surrender their animals. “I have no words to explain the gratitude I have for the community,” Birkelbach says of the outpouring of donations and volunteers. “It makes me so proud to be a Houstonian.”

Still, many of Luann’s RHONY castmates openly predicted the relationship wouldn’t last after Tom, 50, was caught kissing an ex-girlfriend soon after the couple got engaged. Throughout the marriage, stories of inﬁdelity swirled in the press and on the set of the hit reality show. In early August, de Lesseps and D’Agostino Jr. officially called it quits.

Of course he did. But there’s only so many times you can take it. I was really unhappy. He was unhappy. We were just spent. Do you believe he was cheating on you?
He assured me he wasn’t, but that wasn’t the perception of people around us. We live under the spotlight, so you can’t act a certain way... you might be friends with your ex, but it doesn’t look good. But I do believe he wasn’t cheating. And I hope that was the case. Then why was he going out with ex-girlfriends?
He just still wanted to live the life of a bachelor. He said, “You’re not going to change me; this is who I am.” I said, “Okay.” And then I just became more unhappy. I felt like I was constantly defending him and trying to smooth over situations where the other women on the show were accusing him of cheating. Did watching your marriage play out on TV help you with your decision to divorce?
What has the experience taught you?
Just eight months ago you and Tom were celebrating your marriage. What happened?
What was the last straw for you?
He went out with an ex-girlfriend and got caught. We had spent the day at events in the Hamptons and then at a beautiful dinner party. We had friends staying, and it was around 11:30, and we were just hanging out in the kitchen when he announced he was going out on his own.

You can’t change people. I really thought he would change because I was the one for him. I really trusted my heart and my instinct, and I loved him. He had all these years to marry somebody and he didn’t, so I thought if he wants to marry me at 50 years old, this man really loves me. I knew he loved me. And do you still love him?
I do love him as a person, yes. But it’s like a Greek tragedy—an impossible scenario that won’t work. He’s not a bad man, he just wasn’t ready for marriage. I tried hard. I’m sure people will think, “Oh, you tried really hard for seven months,” but it was a long seven months! I feel strong in the decision that I made. There’s a sense of relief. I think he’s relieved too. The show was a strain on your relationship. Did you ever think of giving it up?
I would’ve given up the show for Tom if I had a marriage that was working. How have you and the kids [Victoria, 22, and Noel, 20] been since the breakup?

So it’s almost like I want to thank them for pointing things out. But they supported me, even if they didn’t agree with it. Bethenny said, “Love is blind!” I think she really wished me happiness in the end. Do you still believe in love?
Absolutely! I choose to see the good in people, not the negative. I’m shamelessly optimistic. As for getting married again? Never say never. But I’d deﬁnitely be more cautious next time.

A WIFE ACCUSED
COLDBLOODED KILLER OR VICTIM? CLOCKWISE FROM BOTTOM RIGHT: KPRC; HARRIS COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE
A jury convicted Sandra Melgar of fatally stabbing her husband for money— but she insists he was killed in a deadly home invasion
twassupposedtobeajoyousparty.Friendsandfamilyof Jaime and Sandra Melgar arrived at the couple’s Houston home on Dec. 23, 2012, planning to help the couple celebrate their 32nd wedding anniversary. But once Jaime’s brother and his family let themselves inside the house through an open garage door, they instantly knew something was very wrong. They could hear a woman screaming for help, drawers were pulled out in the couple’s bedroom, and jewelry boxes were strewn around the bathroom. Jaime lay in a pool of blood in the closet, dead from 31 stab wounds. The screams were coming from Sandra, who was in a separate closet, loosely bound by her wrists and ankles. She said she believed they had been victims of a home invasion, but that she had suffered a seizure and had no recollection of what happened. “It haunts me every day,” says the couple’s only daughter, Elizabeth Rose, 32. “I wish I had more answers.” Authorities think they already have the answers— and that they all point to Sandra. During a three-week trial this August, prosecutors charged that Sandra, now 57, fatally stabbed her husband, Jaime, 52, with one of
A LIFE TAKEN
Jaime Melgar (right) married Sandra, his high school sweetheart, in 1980. They lived in a home (below) in a suburban Houston neighborhood. “Everybody said he was just a salt-ofthe-earth great guy,” says Harris County prosecutor Colleen Barnett.
“Their relationship was strong,” says Rose (with her parents, Sandra and Jaime Melgar).
When Sandra Melgar was convicted of first-degree murder, family members were “shocked,” says the couple’s daughter Elizabeth Rose, and Sandra wailed in distress. “I am outraged,” Rose says. “This was a miscarriage of justice.”

ti times th they would stay at home and have drinks together and watch a movie. They evened each other out pretty well.” So how could a seemingly perfect relationship end in murder? Even the prosecutors don’t have a concrete answer. “There were no disputes between them really,” says Barnett. “But when I listened to her statement to the police, I could tell that there were some sore spots.” At trial a witness testiﬁed that Sandra’s religious beliefs— the Melgars were Jehovah’s Witnesses—oppose divorce. “They were not allowed to divorce unless the spouse has committed adultery, which Jaime had not done,” Barnett says. “I think that was part of the motive.” As the case heads to appeal, Rose says she and others who knew her parents will keep fighting to prove her mother didn’t kill her father. “They were happy together,” says Rose. “I feel like I have lost everything. I am always going to question this.” By Steve Helling. Reporting by Christine Pelisek

their kitchen knives and then staged a break-in so she could benefit from a $250,000 lifeinsurance policy. On Aug. 24, jurors agreed and found Sandra guilty of ﬁrst-degree murder, sentencing her to 27 years in prison. “There just isn’t any reasonable evidence that it was anybody else but her,” says Harris County district court chief Colleen Barnett. Sandra continues to maintain her innocence, and her defense team plans to appeal her conviction. Her daughter is standing by her: “A gasp went through the courtroom when the verdict was read,” says Rose. “It was a complete shock.” At the trial prosecutors cited inconsistencies in Sandra’s story and introduced evidence suggesting Jaime was already dead when he was tied up. They also pointed to a cloudy ﬁngernail on Sandra’s right hand indicating that she had used cleaning solution to wipe up evidence at the crime scene. But the defense counters that homicide detectives decided Sandra was guilty from the start and ignored leads—such as a swath of blood on a safe—that may have pointed to other suspects. Those close to the Melgars wonder how the couple’s 32-year marriage could end so violently. The pair lived a quiet, comfortable life, with Jaime working as a computer programmer for a school district and Sandra running her own medical billing and coding business. “They liked to go out and have dinner,” says Rose. “They’d hang out with friends.

Staying Strong “There are days I’m debilitated to the point where I can barely move, but I want to keep as much semblance of normalcy for my kids,” says Morissette.

t’s a picturesque afternoon at Alanis Morissette’s beachfront retreat in Malibu. The singer’s 6-year-old son Ever Imre—wearing a heather-gray T-shirt emblazoned with the word “feminist”— is racing barefoot around the backyard as her 14-month-old daughter Onyx Solace sweetly offers a baby bottle to her stuffed bunny while cuddled up in dad Mario “Souleye” Treadway’s arms. It should be a blissful time for Morissette, but since giving birth she has felt anything but peace. “It’s a roller coaster,” says the 43-year-old entertainer about the crippling postpartum depression she’s been battling since last summer. “As a kid, I imagined having children and being with an amazing partner. This is a whole other wrench I didn’t anticipate.” It’s now Morissette’s second experience with postpartum. After welcoming Ever in 2010, she began feeling symptoms of the disorder—intense physical pain, insomnia, lethargy and “horrifyingly scary” visions of her family being harmed— but well-meaning people in her life chalked it up to baby blues. Morissette, however, knew she needed more “in-depth help.” Sixteen months later the new mom was ﬁnally diagnosedwithPPDandimmediatelybegan a combination of medication and homeopathic treatment. “It’s very isolating,” says the star, who catapulted to the top of the charts with her scathing album Jagged Little Pill more than 20 years ago. “I’m used to being the Rock of Gibraltar, providing, protecting and maneuvering. It had me question everything.” With time Morissette began seeing some relief from the relentlessness of PPD and began planning for another baby with Souleye. Though she knew the depression would likely return, the Grammy winner didn’t let fear stop her from expanding her family. But mere seconds after giving birth to Onyx, the depression set back in, and it’s been “four times worse than the ﬁrst time,” she says. “I thought, ‘Okay, I’m going into the trenches.’ But this time I went much more deeply into them.” While she is working daily on her own recovery with medication, therapy and exercise, her priority remains her two children. “I’ve put them to bed almost every night,” she says. “I want to make sure they’re loved, bonded with and provided for.” But it hasn’t been easy. “I fake-smile really, really well in a way that I’m both proud of and ashamed of,” she says. “When I’m having a rough time, I just sequester myself because I don’t want it to be their burden.” It’s also

It’s a different world now.’”

affected her seven-year marriage to Souleye, 37, who “sometimes gets the dregs of my exhaustion,” admits Morissette. “Even holding hands at this point is a deeply intimate experience.” Still, her rapper husband is doing the best he can to be supportive. “He and I look at each other, and I just say to him, ‘There’s an end to this. I’m in the middle of it, and I’m so sorry for not being able to be who you typically know me to be.’” What Morissette won’t do, however, is stay silent about her struggle. By speaking out about PPD, she hopes to help break the stigma surrounding the illness and end the silent suffering that comes with it. “Women look at me wideeyed going, ‘I had it too,’ and I say, ‘Well, what’d you do?’ They say, ‘Nothing. I just suffered.’ That breaks my heart.” These days what Morissette looks forward to most is feeling like herself again—hopefully soon. “People say, ‘Where’s the old Alanis?’ and I just think, ‘Well, she’s in there. She’s having a minute. I just know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.’”

PROFESSION ACTRESS BORN NEW YORK CITY LIVES NEW YORK CITY ROLE MODEL Hadera also stars on Netflix’s Master of None, where her character Lisa accused a TV chef of sexual harassment: “I have all these ‘F--- Chef Jeff!’ comments on my Instagram. People are proud of me for something I didn’t do, but I’m like, ‘Yeah, Lisa rocks!’”

The Limits of Social Media “I’ll post the link to fund-raising events and hope a few people will donate or participate. But a post on Instagram is not going to help sustain a movement. Action is not a tweet. I think about my Instagram followers: If all of them donated $1 to ASC, they’d be funding five clinics in Ethiopia for a year.” Above: Hadera, 31, played Dwayne Johnson’s love interest in Baywatch. Right: As trader’s assistant Deb Kawi in Showtime’s Billions.

Family Pride Hadera laughs at how her parents react to her rising fame. “We’ll be at a fund-raiser, and my dad will ask someone, ‘Have you Googled Ilfenesh?’ I’m like, ‘Dad, maybe in Ethiopia it’s cool, but in the States you can’t tell people to Google your daughter!’ It’s embarrassing. But it’s just because they’re so proud.” —DANA ROSE FALCONE

“When my father came to New York as a refugee, he immediately started the African Services Community to help other displaced refugees with legal services and to give them a sense of community. They were so fearful of being sent back to war-torn countries. I had my first summer job there doing paperwork. You meet the clients and you hear the stories. So I know how vital the work has been to the lives of thousands of people over the years. We’ve got to look out for one another.”

PEOPLE TEAMED UP WITH HULU’S THE MINDY PROJECT AND CHARITYBUZZ TO EXCLUSIVELY AUCTION OFF SOME OF THE SHOW’S MOST PRECIOUS PIECES FOR A GOOD CAUSE By SHARON KANTER Mindy Kaling has worn more than 1,000 eye-popping outﬁts as the witty Dr. MindyLahiri on The Mindy Project. And her character’s eclectic style, crafted under the talented eye of costume designer Salvador Perez, has become as talked about as the story lines. Now, with her sixth and ﬁnal season streaming on Hulu, she’s preparing to say goodbye, not only to the show but to all of the imaginative costumes “that inspired so many young women,” says Kaling. Adds Perez: “We literally speak our own fashion language.” Before it ends, however, they’ve arranged one more style surprise for fans, partnering exclusively with People and Charitybuzz to auction off some of the most adored accessories Kaling has worn onscreen (see right for details), and proceeds will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, which provides resources to those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and their loved ones. It’s a true full-circle moment, as the star’s late mother, who inspired the show, died from pancreatic cancer several months before the series premiere. “Our world revolves around clothes,” notes Perez, “so to be able to make a difference makes what I do even more signiﬁcant.”

5. Layer a slip dress over a turtleneck. The ’90s look is having a moment again, and we’re all for it since it allows you to keep wearing summer’s slinky style when it’s cooler outside. 6. Cinch your waist. This one’s easy but so true: Adding a belt (wider styles are hot right now) over a sweater or dress accentuates and flatters your waist. 7. Scoop up a bodysuit. They’re not just for Kardashians! Wear a simple long-sleeve style in a solid hue under a blazer or a sweater. 8. Work leopard into 8 p your wardrobe.. y Treat this timeless p print likee T a neutral color and have v ffun mixing g the pattern with h different pieces in your closet.. d p y
9. Pick and choose your trends. “Dress for your body shape before blindly following a trend,” says celebrity stylist Anita Patrickson, who works with Julianne Hough. “Not every style is for everyone! It’s okay to sit something out for a season.” 10. Make something old new again. “Every season I dig in the back of my closet and pull out something I haven’t worn in a while and wear it on repeat,” says Orange Is the New Black costume designer Jenn Rogien. “It doesn’t cost anything, but it still makes you feel like you refreshed your wardrobe.”
11. LACE UP SOME FLASHY KICKS. These gold floral sneakers will do the trick! The eyecatching print is part of stationery and lifestyle brand Rifle Paper Co.’s latest lineup for Keds. KEDS X RIFLE PAPER CO. SNEAKER, $65; KEDS.COM

12. Carry a daytime clutch. Swapping your oversize tote for a sleek, strap-free bag instantly elevates even the most casual outfit. 13. Ignore denim sizes. They run different for every brand. Paige founder Paige Adams-Gellar suggests bringing several pairs into the dressing room and going by the fit: “Stretch and move in each one until you feel like n you want to live in them. Then that’s the right size.” 14. Sport some sassy socks.. Whether they’re fishnet, sheerr or polka dot, showing off your ankle socks is making a ou comeback. Bonus points if you pair ’em with open-toe heels, in n true runway style.

ar.. 15. Elevate your outerwea Give last year’s wool coat a cozy new feel by adding a faux-fur collar or scarf, says celebrity stylist Kemal Harriss, who works with Alexis Bledel and Robin Wright. 16. Stick to one color palette. “When in doubt, go monochromatic,” says Tara Swennen, who works with Kristen Stewart. Think head-to-toe shades of blush or beige. 17. Do denim-on-denim. Once considered a fashion faux pas, doubling down on denim is now a sartorial statement, thanks to streetstyle stars. To pull it off, go for contrasting washes (i.e. light on top, dark on the bottom) so you’re coordinating but not totally matchy-matchy.

38. Layer your necklaces. “I don’t think women should only commit to one necklace— she should wear eight,” says Ken Downing, the senior vice president and fashion director for Neiman Marcus. (Start with the tassel on page 117!)
42. Get inspired watching House of Z. A documentary following Zac Posen’s journey as a designer—from his rise and fall to his rise again—is now available to view on vogue .com. “It’s not all about lipstick and fishtail gowns,” he says.
39. Tuck in the front of your button-down. This small styling trick draws attention to your waist and adds a touch of polish.

THE SINGER, 49, IS TAKING HER LOVE OF ALL THINGS STYLISH TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH THE LAUNCH OF HER OWN HANDBAG LINE By SHARON KANTER Normally it’s the looks on the runway that capture everyone’s attention at couture fashion week in Paris. But this summer all eyes were on Céline Dion, who sat front row at the biggest shows, where she was swarmed by photographers eager to snap her fearless designer ensembles (see page 136). So how did the FrenchCanadian singer become fashion’s unofficial mascot this year? For starters, she’s been working with a new stylist, Law Roach, who has been pushing the star to take more red-carpet risks. “I love experimenting,” Dion tells People. “For me, anything goes!” And then there’s the sense of joy she gets from her glamorous

A FAMILY’S PLEA FOR ANSWERS

William Ford Jr., 24 (in an undated photo), was gunned down by a white man who claimed he was acting in self-defense.

Ford, who was black, was shot by 19-year-old Mark Reilly, a white mechanic at Super Stang Auto Body in Central Islip, N.Y., where Ford’s girlfriend’s car was being serviced. Reilly claimed he’d acted in self-defense, and although he was initially arrested for manslaughter, an all-white grand jury declined to indict him. “Reilly should have gone to trial but didn’t, and my family was destroyed because of injustice,” says Ford’s brother Yance. “We were picked up and put down in a place we didn’t recognize.” Now Yance hopes to shine a light on his family’s devastation—and how race factors into the justice system—

The ﬁlm, produced by Danny Glover’s Louverture Films, suggests Suffolk County detectives let their personal racial biases shape the course of their investigation. “Some of the fears William had I continue to have,” says Glover. “William’s death killed his family along with their dreams and aspirations.” Though Reilly and the investigators who handled the case could not be reached for comment by People, former Suffolk County investigator James Hughes says in the documentary that the evidence supported the grand jury’s decision.

My First Emmy You nabbed a Supporting Actress nomination for The Handmaid’s Tale. Not bad for someone who once got dinged from drama school! Psyched? It’s sort of unbelievable! I keep having to pinch myself, and it’s been like that ever since I found out the news. I feel like Cinderella. If you win, how do you plan to celebrate? Oh man. I’ll probably faint. People will think I’m super-
excited, but I’m just fainting. But winning is so far from my mind. I do feel like I’ve already won just by getting the nomination. Did you have any idea Handmaid’s would become such a hit? Even though we all thought it was great, it’s been exhilarating that other people also think it’s great. You just never know. I had hopes, but I really didn’t know it was going to be this big. I just didn’t.

LINE UP A GREAT REAT DATE
The HBO fan favorite usually cleans up at the Emmys (to date, it’s won 38 of them), but this year it’s not nominated for a single one. The reason? To be eligible, a show must have aired between June 1, 2016, and May 31, 2017. Thrones began its seventh season on July 16, missing the 2017 cutoff date.
The first time I walked the carpet, in 2005, I was alone, and photographers were screaming at me to get out of the way. I was beside myself. Being with Heidi Klum is the antidote to that. She takes my anxieties away.

Pop your slices in the toaster before buttering and placing them in the skillet. It’ll keep crusty, crispy edges as the cheese melts.
Mix mayonnaise into your butter, and spread it on the outside of the bread. The bread will brown more evenly and be less likely to burn.
Cheeses (like cheddar) will melt faster when shredded. Plus, if you’re using different cheeses, the flavors will melt and combine.

Being Scottish, I find it really hard to turn down a wee dram. If you have to go to work the next day, you have to choose your moments.
Last injury I’m working on this movie [The Spy Who Dumped Me], and I did get a crick in my neck while trying to do a flip. You know where you’re lying on your back and you just flip up onto your feet? I shouldn’t have tried that.

They’re pretty strict about it on Outlander, but I’ve always wanted to keep my own sword. I was never allowed to, so I went and got one made. It’s rather silly, but at least if I ever have a burglary, they’ll think twice about entering my home. Reported by Julie Jordan
