'Bachelor' star Kelley Flanagan addresses split with Peter Weber
Wonderwall 2hrs ago

Peter Weber is back to his bachelor life.

Just as the calendar was set to change to 2021, the former "Bachelor" star announced that he and Kelley Flanagan had split up after about eight months together. On Jan. 3, she addressed the split on social media, too.

"I know a lot of you have already heard the news, but I wanted to take some time to process it for myself before sharing," she wrote on Instagram. "It saddens me to say this but Peter and I have decided to go our separate ways. Peter and I had some unbelievable times together and they will definitely be missed. Unfortunately him and I are in two different stages of our lives and saw our future paths differently."

"I wish Peter the absolute best and want to thank everyone for your continued support as I move on to my next chapter," she continued while sharing a picture with Peter. "I'm still hoping to make it to New York one of these days, but for now I just want to focus on my happiness! 2021, I can't wait to see what you have in store!"

The couple's romance got off to a bit of an unexpected start. Kelley, of course, appeared on Peter's season of "The Bachelor" last year. Pilot Pete, as he was known, eliminated her in Week 7. He later proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss, but called off the engagement while admitting that he had stronger feelings for Madison Prewett, who eliminated herself from the dating show. 

During the week that the finale of Season 24 aired, Peter and Madison announced they wouldn't be dating in the future. Two months later, Peter and Kelley announced they were dating.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
