Couple Text Each Other ‘I Love You’ Before Going Into Coma, Then Die From COVID-19 Days Apart

Published

Amy is the Director of Trending Content at LittleThings. After graduating from Florida State University with a creative writing degree, she moved straight to New York City to pursue a career in the arts. She loves discovering and sharing viral videos.

Harriet and Virgil Whiteshirt were married for 45 happy years. The couple (62 and 66, respectively) from El Reno, Oklahoma, dedicated their entire lives to caring for their family.

Five of their grandkids lived with them in their own home. They always stepped up when their loved ones needed help.

But on August 21, 2020, Harriet and Virgil were admitted to an Oklahoma City hospital. They were both struggling to take a breath.

Harriet and Virgil were diagnosed with COVID-19, but everyone thought they’d get better. Including them.

They were in the same hospital but different rooms, constantly texting each other with motivational words.


“We’re going to get through this,” they’d say.

And Harriet and Virgil constantly texted each other to say, “I love you.”

For only a handful of days, Harriet and Virgil were placed on ventilators.

But then the long and loving text thread they’d shared between them abruptly came to an end.

Another day, another face for Khloé Kardashian!

If you’ve been following the KUWTK star lately, you know she’s developed a talent for transforming her looks to the point she’s basically unrecognizable.

Well, it appears the Good American mogul’s chameleon days are just getting started, as fans have called her out for revealing yet another visage she’s yet to show the world in a now-tainted makeup campaign for Ipsy — and this time, KoKo’s being accused of modeling her lewk after the one and only Beyoncé!

Yes, Perezcious readers, True Thompson’s mother was serving some serious Bey-inspired face — complete with a darker skin tone — in a photoshoot announcing her partnership with the makeup subscription program as its brand ambassador.

Seeing as the Revenge Body host has been previously called out for altering her face, it wasn’t long before fans blasted her for going the full ‘Yonce in these promotional pics. Ch-ch-check out some funny reactions (below):

Ha! Naturally, the backlash caused the brand to scrub the shoot from the interwebs — but not before the incriminating images were archived by Twitter vigilantes. Click HERE to see the questionable optics for yourself.

Smh… when will she learn?!

Of course, this is far from the reality star’s first shapeshifting scandal. Over the past few months, the 36-year-old has been regularly called out for photos where she simply doesn’t look like the Khloé fans know and love, whether she’s trying to pass off having sharper, Kate Beckinsale-esque features or taking a swing at serving wicked stepmother realness.

The reality star has remained unbothered by it all, though. Earlier this summer, the mogul started to address the conversation surrounding her changing looks by clapping back at her critics on Instagram. When a snarky commenter wrote, “why do you look so different in all your photos?”, Koko replied:

“From my weekly face transplant, clearly.”

Around the same time, a source claimed Tristan Thompson‘s baby momma couldn’t care less about the public’s opinion on her face, telling Us Weekly:

“Khloe doesn’t care about the backlash she’s been getting from fans saying she doesn’t look like herself in her recent photos… She thinks she looks great. And actually [she] does not care what people think as long as she’s happy.”

The E! personality even alluded to the controversy in her interview with Ipsy, telling the brand:

I never like to stick with one look for too long. Short hair, major glam, bright lips — you name a look, I’ve tried it.”

Truer words have never been spoken!

What do U make of this, Perezcious readers? Is Khloé in on the joke, or is she the butt of it? Share your take (below)!

Utopia season 1 ending explained: Who is Mr. Rabbit?

Utopia ending explained: Who is the real Mr. Rabbit? Does the gang stop the Undoing? Find out the answers in our complete recap of the finale!

Well, it’s here, the big finale. And since the series hasn’t been received well by critics or audiences, it could well be the last episode. I hope not, though, because, despite its faults, Utopia has been a fun ride, and in Utopia episode 8, we come finally face-to-face with Mr. Rabbit. We’re diving into the recap, here is the Utopia ending explained.

Jessica seemingly confirms that Kevin Christie is Mr. Rabbit when she sees the Chinese symbol tattooed on his side. He also doesn’t play coy with anyone and is fine with admitting to all the horrific things he’s done over the years. We get confirmation that those crates Jessica saw at Home were children bought from other countries. Plus, Becky’s Diels? It came from Harvest, and it’s genetic, so if she ever has children, they’ll have it, too.

While chatting with Kevin, Thomas gets a call tipping him off to Arby’s betrayal. He sends out a team to retrieve Kevin, telling them to bring Jessica alive while not caring what they do to Arby.

As the Harvest goons close in, Alice finally finishing piecing together the pattern inscribed on the pages of Utopia. It’s a new virus, the one inside the impending vaccine.

That’s why Kevin wanted it because it could link back to him. He explains that he and Jessica’s father invented an omnivirus that doesn’t kill people, but it is a cure for our “current situation.” They intend to sterilize people, to halt human reproduction for the next three generations.

While Kevin explains his masterplan, Arby picks off the Harvest team one by one outside.

Inside, it seems like Kevin’s speech about how his vaccine will save the world by solving overpopulation is swaying at least one person: Wilson. I have a terrible feeling that he’s going to turn traitor.

Kevin reveals to Jessica that her father supposedly never cared about her. He claims the starburst scar on her arm is from when she was inoculated. She was the original test rabbit and her father only cared about her in so far as he could use her to test out his creations. She was kept inside her yellow house and given her vapor inside there.

”This should be underlined in blood: you belong to me.”

Jessica smacks Kevin, and the gang leaves the room to figure out how to stop the vaccine. While left alone, Kevin inches closer to a globe decoration, one I presume is more than it seems as Michael also pointed out the same one was at Dale’s house.

They plan to infiltrate Christie Labs, destroy the viruses, and the original virus. Then Wilson concocts a plan to film Kevin confessing to killing hundreds of children to make a vaccine that would earn him millions. He thinks people will be more likely to believe he did it all for greed rather than the sterilization stuff.

After his confession, they’ll make it look like Kevin became overcome with guilt and shot himself in the head. To get inside, they’ll need Kevin’s thumb to get past the biometric scanner. He lets them chop it off since he’s confident they’ll die anyway.

Jessica and Wilson stay behind while the rest of the group heads toward Christie Labs. Instead of helping Wilson, though, Jessica finds Arby outside by a pile of artfully arranged dead Harvest member bodies. He tells her his purpose is to help her, that he was born to assist Jessica. He notices she looks sick (the plague rabbit bit her), and Jessica says she wants to go Home. Arby volunteers to take her there.

The gang successfully infiltrates the vaccine warehouse, but… it’s a lot of freaking vaccines to destroy.

Utopia ending explained: The gang destroys the vaccines & Michael steals a viral egg.

At Michael’s house, Wilson is left with Kevin, and I cannot help thinking he’s about to betray his team because everything Kevin says is in line with what he’s been saying all season. Plus, there’s no way that Kevin is going to confess to anything, he doesn’t fear death and Wilson has no real leverage. Kevin is a master manipulator and knows exactly what to say to entice him. However, there is also the fact that Kevin killed Wilson’s family. He holds a gun to Mr. Rabbit’s head.

Slowly, the group manages to destroy as many vaccines as they can, helped along by Grant and Alice finding industrial motorized carts. They knock everything down and light it all on fire with a molotov cocktail. Ian and Becky can’t help but pause in the middle to kiss as Ian gifts Becky one of Jessica’s rings.

Michael searches for the “mother virus egg” and cranks up the heat to destroy it all as the group makes their grand escape from the facilities. On the way out, Michael notices Thomas Christie, who makes an announcement that they’re under attack by bioterrorists.

Unfortunately for our group, they don’t quite make it to safety. Grant and Becky run ahead and the cops catch them, apprehending Grant because of his false identity as the spree killer. Becky manages to run away from the cops while Ian and Alice disappear into the woods. Ian’s initial reaction is to try and save Becky, but as Alice points out, they can’t do anything if they get caught, too.

Utopia ending explained: Wilson betrays the group.

Becky continues running until a truck screeches to a halt beside her. Wilson jumps out and tells her to get in, and as I feared, Thomas and Kevin Christie are in the front seat. Becky is horrified by Wilson’s betrayal, although she still believes they’ve won, wiped out all of Christie’s work. He says that’s not true. They just need Jessica.

As for Michael, he’s seen driving away from everything, with a single virus egg in the passenger’s seat.

While all of this is happening, Arby takes Jessica Home, a place, by all appearances, that is full of light and sunshine. Children play, and frolic in the fields as Arby explains their purpose to help with experiments and go places that adults can’t. He says he wishes it wasn’t like that, and Jessica tells him it doesn’t have to be.

Utopia ending explained: Who is the real Mr. Rabbit?

Then he brings her to her old yellow house. Jessica explores inside and notices her old gas mask. Then someone slowly approaches and sits beside her on the bed. It’s Milner and…SHE’S THE REAL MR. RABBIT. According to her, she’s done working with Kevin Christie — he just doesn’t know it yet.

Realizing she’s walked into a trap, Jessica throws Utopia out the window and the children scamper toward the pages. Milner says she doesn’t care about the comic, that it was only bait. What she really wants is inscribed across Jessica’s back, a smattering of strange symbols waiting to be harvested. Milner claims she and Jessica’s father envisioned a Utopia where people are immune to cruelty, greed, and other terrible impulses. Whatever deadly virus they’ve cooked up is hidden within Jessica.

Then Jessica passes out, succumbing to her flu, although Milner says her blood will heal her.

Arby watches on from outside, and whispers, “Stay alive, Jessica Hyde.”

Milner slowly descends into her basement and approaches a man scribbling pages with similar artwork to Dystopia and Utopia.

”I have your daughter.”

Utopia ending explained: Odds & Ends from the finale

  • If the series gets renewed for another season, I hope we get more explanation as to the differences between Kevin Christie and Agent Milner. Why does Christie emphasize that Jessica “belongs to him?” Yet Milner claims she and Christie are going to part ways? It’s all very murky right now. So is the mysterious virus embedded in Jessica.
  • Why does Christie have the “Mr. Rabbit” tattoo if he’s not the real one? Is he just a decoy? is that his “purpose?”
  • What is the deal with the *literal* virus eggs? Is that a thing?

What did you think about the Utopia season finale? Do you want the series to get renewed for season 2? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

All eight episodes of Utopia season 1 are now streaming on Netflix.

The Lord of the Rings, Stranger Things, Cowboy Bebop all resume production

Published

Hollywood is creaking back to life after a long COVID-19 hiatus, with lots of high-profile shows resuming production.

This past March, the coronavirus pandemic tore through the world, interrupting businesses and lives. That’s still happening, but some businesses, at least, are clawing their way back, including Hollywood, which had to shut down filming on a variety of movies and TV shows thanks to the disease.

In fact, three major shows are resuming filming this week, starting with the fourth season of Netflix’s Stranger Things in Atlanta. Eagle-eyed fans in the area have noticed things like the set for the Hawkins Family Video Store and Palace Arcade going back up, with filming presumably having officially started back up yesterday:

Stranger Things filmed a good chunk of material before things had to shut down, enough to release a teaser showing off the return of a fan-favorite character. With a lot of our characters now living apart, season 4 promises to be more of a globe-trotting affair than season 3 was, but we’ll have to wait a while before we find out the specifics. Once upon a time, we hoped that the new season might release this year, but with the COVID-19 shutdown, I think 2021 is the best we can hope for.

That year should be packed with delayed goodies. After enduring its own shutdown, Deadline reports that Amazon’s fabulously expensive Lord of the Rings show is now back in production in New Zealand, which was also the place where director Peter Jackson shot his Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. But the new show won’t retread that old ground: it’s set during the Second Age of Middle-earth, long before characters like Frodo and Sam were born, although immortal characters like Galadriel will still be around.

The Lord of the Rings has an interesting production history. Amazon has already ordered two seasons, and the crew had filmed a good part of the first two episodes before the coronavirus came knocking. The funny thing is that, after those two episodes were done, the show was going to take a planned hiatus anyway to assess and tweak while the writing team penned more episodes. With the hiatus coming early, showrunners and executive producers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay have already started to map out and write season 2, so perhaps now the team can go full speed ahead.

Finally, Netflix is set to resume filming on its live-action remake of the popular anime series Cowboy Bebop tomorrow. This show also began filming a while back, but had to delay because star John Cho, who’s playing the stylish space bounty hunter Spike Spiegel, injured his knee. This was in the fall, before COVID-19 had reared its head, but that delay bled right into a new one. All told, it’s been about a year since the show shot anything.

But that’s over now. Relatedly, James Cameron just announced that he’d finished production on Avatar 2 and was nearly done with Avatar 3, so sets are springing back to life everywhere! There’s probably gonna be some weird dead spaces for shows and movies coming up, but with everybody throwing themselves back into work, it doesn’t look like they’ll last too long.
