It's About Time! TV Couples We Need to See Together in 2021
US Weekly 2hrs ago
Let’s do this already! While TV has mastered the art of the slow burn — we’re looking at you, Chicago P.D. — there usually comes a time for a relationship. And for some TV couples, that time has arrived. Outer Banks fans got to follow John B and Sarah’s steamy romance — and actors Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline do the same in real life. However, it was JJ (Rudy Pankow) and Kiara (Madison Bailey) who viewers were rooting for by the end of the season. Although they maintained a strictly platonic friendship in season 1, that doesn’t mean it can’t turn into more in the future. “I think it’s cute. I don’t think it should happen immediately in season 2,” Pankow, 22, told Us exclusively in April. “And I know some people would be a little mad at me for saying that, but I think just to have Kiara go from John B to Pope to then JJ within two seasons would be a little, like, she wants all three of them. So I think it’d be a little much.” That said — he’d be OK with it happening down the line. “I think the end game, the end game of the OBX, I can see JJ and Kiara being like, ‘All right there’s something here,’” he shared. “Because it starts out with JJ saying that he had tried getting with Kiara. So, who knows?” While JJ and Kiara’s bond is still blossoming, Chicago P.D.‘s Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) and Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) have been working together for years and are still skating around whether there’s something more there. “Jay has definitely been put through the wringer the last couple seasons, and Hailey has always been there for him. I think he really trusts her and started to let her in,” Soffer told Us in 2019. “I think his feelings snuck up on him.” So, will the romance finally happen? Scroll through the gallery below to see which TV couples we’re hoping to see together in 2021.

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.
