#WeekendReads: Your Go-To Grill Guide | A Woman Goes Missing and Never Returns | Pain Relief Remedies

This week in Texture, we learned: 1) Whether it was paying the check or hitting the town with Derek Jeter and Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods was 0-for-2 as a pickup artist. 2) Reading about the sins and scandals of the Mitford sisters will make another Downton Abbey-less Sunday more bearable. 3) Despite Star’s shocking headline, we’re with #TeamKelly in the Live feud. 4) Grit is the new buzzword when predicting career success. 5) Huge is the feud between Donald Trump and Fortune over his net worth. Also up for debate: Is he flipping the bird in this photo? 6) Gift ideas from Today’s Parent will make Mother’s Day nice and easy, though a Texture subscription may just be the best gift of all. (We couldn’t resist!)

#WeekendReads: The Most Beautiful Woman in the World | Best Reads of the Week | The Greatest Food Around the Globe

What did we learn reading Texture this week? 1) You can actually win someone’s trust by offering an unsolicited apology around a ho-hum topic like the weather. 2) Reagan had his jellybeans. Guess which presidential candidate said, “Goldfish are my weakness”? 3) Men may not have a time of the month, but their hormones can cause male mood swings. 4) Sunshine, water, boardwalks, quaint shops, and pretty cottages are the hallmarks of the happiest towns in America. 5) Finally, Prince sang “let’s go crazy” at work, but at home he was a shy, thoughtful, and very engaging host who could be quick with a comeback. When EW‘s Leah Greenblatt conducted what’s now one of the last interviews with Prince at Paisley Park, she told him she was struck by how quiet the place was.  To which he replied, “Sometimes the doves are noisy.” Yes, he still had doves—and today, they’re not the only ones crying.

#WeekendReads: Ashton Kutcher is a Startup Star | Best Reads of the Week | Weekend DIY Projects

This week Texture is talking about the L word–in this case, loyalty. From the campaign trail, where civility may be in short supply, there’s plenty of respect for Huma Abedin, often referred to as Hillary’s Other Daughter, and Ivanka Trump, seen as her father’s most valuable asset. In a surprising interview, Today show anchor Tamron Hall talks about her efforts to keep the memory of her murdered sister alive, while Oprah‘s editors explore staying devoted in the digital age. But it would be hard to find a spirit more loyal and true than Betsy, a Spaniel mix who reminds us that zeal for work and speaking one’s mind is key to a well-lived life. May we all follow her lead.
