Us Weekly is a weekly celebrity and entertainment magazine based in New York City. Us Weekly was founded in 1977 by The New York Times Company, who sold it in 1980, it was acquired by Wenner Media in 1986, sold to American Media Inc. in 2017. Shortly afterward, former editor James Heidenry stepped down, was replaced by Jennifer Peros; the Chief Content Officer of American Media, Dylan Howard, oversees the publication. Us Weekly covers topics ranging from celebrity relationships to the latest trends in fashion and entertainment; as of 2017, its paid circulation averaged to more than 1.95 million copies weekly and total readership of more than 50 million consumers. The magazine features a different style from its original 1977–2000 format. A monthly industry news and review magazine along the lines of Premiere or Entertainment Weekly, it switched format in 2000 to its current themes of celebrity news and style; the web site Usmagazine.com was launched in fall 2006. In addition to features from the magazine, the site has a breaking celebrity news blog, exclusive photos, red carpet galleries from premieres and events, plus games, videos and polls.
Us Weekly has several signature issues each year, including the Hot Hollywood special issues, in the spring and the fall celebrating young Hollywood. Janet Jackson's June 5, 2006 Us Weekly cover holds the record for the publication's biggest selling issue in history. Launched as a fortnightly publication in 1977, Us by the New York Times Company; the magazine lost money before turning its first profit in 1980. It was sold that year by Macfadden Media, it was acquired by Jann Wenner in 1985 and is a part of Wenner Media LLC, which publishes Rolling Stone and Men’s Journal. In 1991, Us became a monthly publication. In 1999, the company announced plans to shift the Us publication schedule from monthly to weekly; the shift coincided with a change in style from industry news and reviews to a celebrity-focused news magazine. The move was a response to several market forces, including the success of Time, Inc.’s Entertainment Weekly and People magazines. Wenner expressed his intention to keep Us "celebrity-friendly" in contrast with the more gossipy character of its competitors.
He told The New York Times: "We will be nice to celebrities. A lot of my friends are in the entertainment business." The publication focuses on celebrity fashion as well as Hollywood gossip. Kelli Delaney, current New York designer for Members Only served as Fashion Director of the publication; the change took effect in March 2000. In February 2001, Wenner partnered with The Walt Disney Company. But, in August 2006, Wenner Media re-acquired Disney's 50 percent stake, making the publication once again owned and operated by Wenner Media. In July 2003, Janice Min took over as Editor in Chief with Victoria Lasdon Rose as Publisher, Michael Steele as Executive Editor. Steele took over for Min in 2009. Melanie Bromley served as the magazine's West Coast bureau chief from 2007-2012. In 2017, the publication was sold to American Media, Inc. 1977: Us founded by The New York Times Company 1980: Us acquired by Peter J. Callahan's Macfadden Group; the staff of Photoplay and TV Mirror, the merger of Photoplay, Movie Mirror, TV-Radio Mirror, is merged.1986: Us acquired by Straight Arrow Publishers, Inc. now known as Wenner Media LLC 1991: Us changes its bi-weekly frequency to become monthly March 2000: Us changes from a monthly format and goes weekly, changing its title February 2001: Us Weekly partners with The Walt Disney Company January 2006: Us Weekly increases rate base to 1.75 Million July 2006: Us Weekly launches Usmagazine.com August 2006: Wenner Media re-acquires Disney’s 50 percent stake in Us Weekly March 2017: American Media, Inc. bought US Weekly from Wenner Media LLC Just Like Us: photos of celebrities doing things everyday people do.

One of the first things they did, that led to the jacking up of photo prices, was to pay $75,000 to buy pictures of Jennifer Lopez reading Us magazine, so Us Weekly couldn't buy them.
That was the watershed moment. I had never seen anything like it, but they saw a competitor come along, responded. It was a business move, a smart one. In a June 2007 New York Magazine article, Tina Brown was asked, "Do you read the tabloids?" Of course. I read everything. I adore Us Weekly. I think. I'm a big fan of magazines. From a May 2007 New York Post article profiling New York's 50 Most Powerful Women, Janice Min, 37, editor, Us magazine. With her mag's profits placed as high as $90 million a year and readership up 191 percent in the last five years, Janice is not just like us. Nonetheless, the success of Us is attributed to the mother of two's reputation as perky and well liked – as well as its addictive features like t
OK! is a British weekly magazine specialising in royal and celebrity news, with lots of showbiz exclusives. Launched as a monthly, its first issue was published in April 1993. In September 2004, OK! launched in Australia as a monthly title – the magazine went weekly in October 2006. In 2005, a US version was launched, followed by an Indian edition in May 2006, a Spanish-language version in Mexico in 2006, a Bulgarian-language version in 2007 and a Spanish edition in 2008. In February 2018, Trinity Mirror has sealed a deal to buy Northern & Shell owned OK! for £184m. In 2011, American Media Inc. bought OK! USA from Northern & Shell. In 2017, former editor James Heidenry stepped down, was replaced by James Robertson; the Chief Content Editor of American Media, Dylan Howard, oversees the publication. OK! is the world's biggest celebrity lifestyle magazine, with more than 30 million readers worldwide, now appears in 20 countries. OK! is best known for its coverage of celebrity nuptials. In 2000, OK! had exclusive rights to publish photographs of the wedding of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, but its rival Hello! magazine published pictures as well, OK! sued.
It lost it on appeal. In October 2005, three celebrity weddings took place on the same day: those of Katie Price and Peter Andre, Kate Garraway and Derek Draper, Samia Ghadie and property developer Matthew Smith. OK! Covered them all over separate issues; the biggest wedding of the three was covered over two bumper issues. The same happened for the wedding of Cheryl Cole, as well as Christina Aguilera's. OK! Devoted an issue to photos of Tony Parker and Eva Longoria's wedding. Other weddings covered by OK! are: Natasha Hamilton and Riad Erraji Kerry Katona and Mark Croft Holly Willoughby and Dan Baldwin Steven Gerrard and Alex Curran John Terry and Toni Poole Kym Marsh and Jack Ryder Melanie Brown and Jimmy Gulzar Wayne Rooney and Coleen McLoughlin Jack Tweed and Jade Goody Patsy Kensit and Jeremy Healy Kian Egan and Jodi Albert Samantha Janus and Mark Womack Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie Prince William and Kate Middleton Tom Fletcher and Giovanna Falcone Prior to Jade Goody's cancer-related death in March 2009, OK!
Sparked controversy by publishing an "Official Tribute Issue" with the front-page captions "In Loving Memory" and "1981-2009," though Goody was still alive when the issue went to press. In June 2009, OK! Ran another tribute issue, this time for Michael Jackson; the publication had paid a reported $500,000 for images of Jackson's body being retrieved after his death. The cover photo showed a deceased Jackson in a neck brace and with an oxygen mask. "It’s a photo that captures the surprise and the upset and the moment of this breaking news story," Sarah Ivens, the magazine's editorial director, said. "I hope the cover will provoke readers." In 2010, the magazine faced more criticism after running a cover story on Kourtney Kardashian's pregnancy. It published a cover photo of Kardashian holding her son and claimed to feature an exclusive interview revealing the secrets to her weight loss. Kardashian tweeted in response, "One of those weeklies got it wrong again…they didn’t have an exclusive with me.
And I gained 40 pounds while pregs, not 26 …But thanks!" She alleged that the body on the cover was not hers, that OK! had Photoshopped her face onto someone else's body. OK! came under fire again in July 2013 when it published an issue featuring Kate Middleton on the same day she left the hospital after giving birth to Prince George. The front cover of the 30 July issue advertised "Kate's Post-Baby Weight Loss Regime" and an "exclusive interview" with Middleton's trainer, who claimed that " stomach will shrink straight back" to its previous size; the story sparked backlash on Twitter when English TV presenter Katy Hill tweeted a photo of her own postpartum body and urged fellow mothers to boycott the magazine. Hill gained support from other women who believed that the story had been posted too soon after Middleton gave birth and felt that OK! was "pressuring new moms to lose the baby weight." The magazine's parent company, Northern & Shell issued an apology in a statement published in The Guardian: "Kate is one of the great beauties of our age and OK!
Readers love her. Like the rest of the world, we were moved by her radiance as she and William introduced the Prince of Cambridge to the world. We would not dream of being critical of her appearance. If, misunderstood on our cover it was not intended." OK! TV was an early-evening magazine program broadcast on Channel 5 as a brand extension of OK! Magazine, it replaced Live From Studio Five in February 2011 and was presented by Jenny Frost and Jeff Brazier, who replaced Kate Walsh and Matt Johnson in August 2011. A U. S. version of OK! TV aired from 2013 to 2016. OK! Insider is a weekly video podcast about the current issue of the magazine, it is written and presented by Layla Anna-Lee and Lizzie Cundy and produced by Simon Withington, is available on the OK! UK website. OK! Magazine

Joseph Weider was a Canadian bodybuilder and entrepreneur who co-founded the International Federation of BodyBuilders alongside his brother Ben Weider. He was the creator of the Mr. Olympia, the Ms. Olympia and the Masters Olympia bodybuilding contests, he was the publisher of several bodybuilding and fitness-related magazines, most notably Muscle & Fitness, Men's Fitness and Shape, the manufacturer of a line of fitness equipment and fitness supplements. Weider was born in Montréal, Québec, Canada, to Louis and Anna Weider, Polish Jewish emigrants from the town of Kurów, Poland, he published the first issue of Your Physique magazine in 1940, built a set of barbells out of car wheels and axles the same year out of the family garage on Coloniale Street in Montréal. He designed numerous training courses beginning in the 1950s, including the Weider System of Bodybuilding, he married Hedwiges "Vicky" Uzar. During his marriage to Vicky Uzar he had met Betty Brosmer, the highest paid pin-up girl in the U.
S. In 1961 Joe and Betty married, she began working alongside him as Betty Weider. Betty and Joe together authored books on bodybuilding. Joe and Ben together were the co-founders of the International Federation of BodyBuilders; the family founded Weider Nutrition in 1936, considered the first sports nutrition company. Now called Schiff Nutrition International, they were the creators of Tiger's Milk nutrition bars and related products, one of the earliest lines of sports foods. In 1953, Your Physique was renamed Muscle Builder magazine; the name changed again to Muscle & Fitness in 1980. Other magazines published by Weider's publishing empire included Mr. America, Muscle Power, Shape magazine, Fit Pregnancy, Men's Fitness, Living Fit, Prime Health and Fitness, Senior Golfer, Flex, in addition to the more risque Jem Magazine and Monsieur; the last two publications caused at least two clashes with obscenity laws. Weider has written numerous books, including The Weider System of Bodybuilding, co-wrote the 2006 biography Brothers Of Iron with Ben Weider.
In 1983, Weider was named "Publisher of the Year" by The Book Association. In 2003, his publication company, Weider Publications, was sold to American Media. In 1972, Weider and his brother Ben found themselves a target of an investigation led by U. S. Postal Inspectors; the investigation involved the claims regarding their nutritional supplement Weider Formula No. 7. The product was a weight-gainer; the actual claim centered on consumers being able to "gain a pound per day" in mass. Following an appeal wherein Schwarzenegger testified, Weider was forced to alter his marketing and claims. In 1972, Weider encountered legal problems for claims made in his booklet Be a Destructive Self-Defense Fighter in Just 12 Short Lessons. Weider was ordered to offer a refund to 100,000 customers of a "five-minute body shaper", claimed to offer significant weight loss after just minutes a day of use; the claims, along with misleading "before and after" photographs, were deemed false advertising by a Superior Court Judge in 1976.
In the 1980s, Weider found himself. In 1984, the FTC charged that ads for Weider's Anabolic Mega-Pak and Dynamic Life Essence had been misleading; the FTC complaint was settled in 1985 when Weider and his company agreed not to falsely claim that the products could help build muscles or be effective substitutes for anabolic steroids. They agreed to pay a minimum of $400,000 in refunds or, if refunds did not reach this figure, to fund research on the relationship of nutrition to muscle development. In 2000, Weider Nutritional International settled another FTC complaint involving false claims made for alleged weight loss products; the settlement agreement called for $400,000 to be paid to the FTC and for a ban on making any unsubstantiated claims for any food, dietary supplement, or program. Weider died of heart failure on March 23, 2013 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California at the age of 93. On Labor Day 2006, California governor and seven times Mr. Olympia winner Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Weider protégé, presented him with the Venice Muscle Beach Hall of Fame's Lifetime Achievement award.
Schwarzenegger credited Weider with inspiring him to enter bodybuilding and to come to the United States. That same year Joe and Ben received the lifetime achievement award by the Young Men's Hebrew Association. A movie called Bigger was released in 2018 on the life of his brother Joe Weider. Tyler Hoechlin will be seen playing as Joe Weider, while Julianne Hough plays Betty Weider, his wife and Aneurin Barnard will be seen playing the role of Ben Weider.
