Netflix star Hana Kimura dead at 22

In a heartbreaking end to one rising star’s story, Hana Kimura’s name was added to the list of celebrities we’ve lost in 2020. Additionally, she also became one of the many famous figures who passed away before they turned 30 when she died in May 2020 at the age of 22. The death of the Japanese professional wrestler, who also appeared on Netflix’s Terrace House, was confirmed on May 22, 2020, according to the New York Post.

Stardom Wrestling, which promotes professional women’s wrestling in Japan, announced Kimura’s passing, per TMZ, saying, “We are very sorry to report that our Hana Kimura has passed away.” The organization’s statement continued, “Please be respectful and allow some time for things to process, and keep your thoughts and prayers with her family and friends. We appreciate your support during this difficult time.”

While the Post noted that Stardom Wrestling “didn’t give a cause of death,” Kimura had sparked concern prior to her death due to a pair of worrisome social media posts.

Hana Himura shared concerning messages before her death

Prior to Hana Kimura’s death, the last social media posts shared by the Netflix star and wrestling figure seemed to indicate that there was something seriously wrong going on behind the scenes. On the day that the star’s death was confirmed, the New York Post reported that just days earlier she had taken to Twitter to write, “I don’t want to be a human anymore. It was a life I wanted to be loved. Thank you everyone, I love you. Bye.” She also sent out a photo of herself and her cat on Instagram along with a short message that simply read: “goodbye.”

The star’s messages sparked concern due to their nature, especially considering the fact that — like Star Wars actress Kelly Marie Tran, former Bachelor Colton Underwood, and so many more — Himura had opened up about the harassment she had apparently faced online when she “issued a series of troubling social media posts implying she had been cyber-bullied,” according to the BBC. These circumstances have led some to believe that Kimura may have taken her own life.

Whatever the cause of the star’s death, our thoughts are with her loved ones during this difficult time.

If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or text HOME to the Crisis Text Line at 741741.

This Theory About Ciri’s Prophecy In ‘The Witcher’ Has Fans Asking Questions

The Witcher Season 1 follows three separate characters on their journeys through the Continent. The title character is Geralt of Rivia, the "Witcher" of the story, whose life viewers see over 90-odd years. There’s also the love of his life, Yennefer, whose story we follow from childhood to the defeat of Nilfgaard. But despite her lack of central screen time, the third character, Ciri, the "Lion Cub of Cintra," may be the most critical of all. This theory about Ciri’s prophecy in The Witcher indicates the series has a larger tale to tell.

The Witcher spends most of the first season with Geralt and Yennefer. From a world-building point of view, this makes sense. Their stories span nearly a century, and both travel widely in their adventures, which gives viewers an overview of the shifting political climates and social norms of the Continent.

Ciri, on the other hand, barely goes anywhere. As a sheltered princess, her escape from her home in Cintra during the defeat by Nilfgaard is on foot. Despite stealing a horse at one point, she never travels more than a few miles. All of her adventures also happen over a couple of weeks. The earliest viewers see her is a day or two before Cintra’s fall, and her final scene is the day after the Battle of Sodden Hill, which occurs 14 days later. And yet, Ciri seems to be the show’s heart.

Season 1 of The Witcher goes heavy on the idea of "destiny." Several scenes, from the "law of surprises" at Queen Calanthe’s party to the season finale, suggest the fates of Ciri and Geralt are tied together somehow. The most crucial moment comes when viewers discover Ciri’s ability to prophesize the future, which she does at the end of the series’ penultimate episode.

Ciri’s adventures take place after the fall of Cintra, and the longer she travels, the more dangerous the roads get. In the early days, those who are displaced are moving in large makeshift villages. But by the final episodes, those have been broken up, and the desperate have formed gangs, attacking those who look vulnerable or are traveling alone. Ciri, in her expensive cloak, alone with her stolen horse, is an easy target for a crew of young men formerly from Cintra.

For a moment, Ciri thinks she’s been saved. She even recognizes Anton, one of those she used to hang out with in the market square pretending to be commoner before the city burned. But that’s precisely why they targeted her. They knew she was a poor little rich girl, alone.

But in this moment of crisis, she is suddenly overtaken by a trance. Here’s what she says while under the spell:

The good news is the men back away in terror. But what do her words mean?

In the books, this prophecy is central to the overarching plot. The version from the books begins the same way. But then it goes on to say:

Those lines are left off in the show, perhaps to be spoken at a later time. But in the novels, they are a warning that the Continent, and everyone on it, will be threatened by a "global cooling." In other words, "Winter Is Coming."

If this theory about The Witcher‘s prophecy is correct, it suggests the series is more like Game of Thrones than fans might realize. Could this be a story of political machinations, and rulers fiddling while the world dies? If so, The Witcher‘s future just got way more complicated.

Chrishell Stause Breaks Down in Tears over Justin Hartley Divorce in Selling Sunset Teaser



A source previously told PEOPLE that Stause didn’t see the split coming and was “still reeling.”

“Yes, they’d had some problems, but she certainly never thought he would just go and suddenly file for divorce, and not even try to save things,” the source said.

“He’s reached a new level of fame thanks to the show and he doesn’t want to close many doors right now, and that’s not necessarily the path Chrishell is looking to take,” the source continued. “She thought babies would happen soon after they got married, but it just hasn’t worked out.”

But a separate insider said that Stause is not the only one upset that their relationship has ended.

“Justin is obviously very disappointed that his marriage didn’t work,” the insider said, adding that the couple’s busy work schedules often kept them apart.

The pair tied the knot in 2017 in a rustic and romantic ceremony at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, California, exchanging vows in front of 75 of their closest friends and family members.

Selling Sunset season 2 is now streaming on Netflix.

Netflix's Sweet Magnolias Has a Soundtrack Better Than Cool Lemonade on a Hot Day

Netflix’s Sweet Magnolias Has a Soundtrack Better Than Cool Lemonade on a Hot Day

Netflix’s new drama Sweet Magnolias has the kind of soundtrack that you can put on whenever and just genuinely enjoy. Surprisingly, there are only a handful of actual songs on the soundtrack; the new Netflix series seems to mostly prefer its own original underscoring by James Jandrisch. That being said, the show’s music team has chosen several pre-existing songs to add an extra layer to some of the most pivotal scenes, and we’ve tracked down as many of them as we can.

It’s worth noting that one of the show’s most noticeable songs isn’t actually available anywhere to stream or purchase right now. That would be “Change Is Gonna Come” by Katie Pruitt, which shows up significantly in the first episode (and also has appeared recently on Station 19 and Nancy Drew), but isn’t available on Spotify, Apple, YouTube, or any other platforms at the moment. There are plenty of songs that are available, though, so keep reading to see which songs from Sweet Magnolias you want to add to your playlists!
