Rolling Stone Talks To Daniel Bryan & Brie Bella About The Yes Movement

Mind Of Carnage

– Rolling Stone’s website has a new article up looking at Daniel Bryan and The Yes Movement. Bryan talked about his popularity compared to Steve Austin:

“When you look at Steve Austin, if he’d happened in different eras, he would have been hated. Hulk Hogan, if he came out now saying, ‘America, take your vitamins,’ and he’s this jacked-up dude, you would get people going, ‘Wait, what? I hate this guy.’ To me, it’s whether you fit into the atmosphere.”

Bryan also revealed what he and Brie Bella want for their future:

“Brie and I would like a simple organic farm that’s not farming to sell stuff, but just to be self-sufficient. You never know what the world’s gonna be like.”

Brie was quoted in the article, saying Bryan has broken the mold and is making people look at smaller talents differently:

Mother of Slain 7-Year-Old Girl Unveils Sculpture, Garden In Her Honor

CBS New York

By Rebecca Granet, 1010 WINS

HILLSDALE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Rosemarie D’Alessandro is driven by passion, patience and perseverance. But the inspiration she found through the tears and the pain of an unimaginable horror is what consumes her days.

“My main inspirational person is Joan,” Rosemarie said. “I would not have been doing what I’m doing to this day if it wasn’t for her inspiration, and it’s like she’s telling me to do what I’m doing.”

Her daughter’s heart and soul are remembered each day in the work that she does, by the pictures that line the walls of her home, in her daughter’s tiny ballet slippers preserved on display just outside the kitchen, and by the white butterflies placed throughout the house. Rosemarie even keeps a rock from the place where Joan’s sexually molested and murdered body was found at Harriman State Park in New York.

Some critics will surely wonder what a model who’s at best an amateur golfer is doing on the cover of Golf Digest, and the magazine responded ahead of time.

From GolfDigest.com:

“Sports figures, celebrities and models have appeared on Golf Digest covers since the magazine’s beginning,” Golf Digest Editor-in-Chief Jerry Tarde said. “Paulina ranks at the high end of the golf celebrity scene today, and she has a compelling story to tell. She also might get some new people interested in the game.”

That’s a fancy way of saying “we want to sell some magazines,” but hey man…

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — It’s a scramble to the top.

About 700 people will be taking the long way up to the 72nd floor at 4 World Trade Center on Thursday evening — hiking up the stairs.

The event is called the “Runyon Up,” a fundraiser for the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.
