Jim Edmonds honored his girlfriend, Kortnie O’Connor, with a heartfelt birthday tribute, thanking her for everything she does. “Happy birthday @kortnieoc,” Edmonds, 50, wrote via Instagram on Monday, October 5. “To the most amazing, strong, courageous, loving, selfless, caring, daring person I have ever met.” The former baseball player shared a series of photos to commemorate his girlfriend turning 36. “I could never put into words what you mean to me and my family,” he continued. “They say God puts people in lives for a reason. For the first time in my life I truly believe this.” The Real Housewives of Orange County alum, who confirmed his relationship with O’Connor in April after splitting from wife Meghan King in October 2019, revealed how she’s changed his life. “It’s like you came along and turned the light on in my heart again. Something that I didn’t think was going to be possible again,” the former St. Louis Cardinals center fielder wrote. “I just wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how much I love you and thank you for being you! YOU ARE MY FAVORITE!” Earlier in the year, O’Connor showed her love for Edmonds, throwing him a birthday party in June with his friends and children. Edmonds shares daughter Aspen, 3, and twin boys, Hart and Hayes, 2, with estranged wife King, 36. He also shares daughters Hayley and Lauren with his late ex-wife, LeAnn Edmonds Horton, and son Landon and daughter Sutton with his second wife, Allison Jayne Raski.

Matthew McConaughey says he was blackmailed and sexually abused as a teenager in his new book

  Matthew McConaughey says he was blackmailed and sexually abused as a teenager in his new book McConaughey wrote in "Greenlights" that he was "knocked unconscious in the back of a van" when he was 18 and "molested by a man.""I was blackmailed into having sex for the first time when I was 15," McConaughey wrote in an excerpt seen by Page Six. "I was certain I was going to hell for the premarital sex. Today, I am merely certain that I hope that's not the case.

Earlier this year, during an interview on "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen," McConaughey also revealed that he auditioned for the iconic role of Jack Dawson in James Cameron's romance epic 'Titanic."

"The audition went really well. Well enough where, when I was left, I was being slapped on the back," he said. "Well enough where you go outside and call your agent and say, 'Oh, I nailed it,'"

But despite his intuitions, the role, of course, went to Leonardo DiCaprio.

McConaughey is now best known for his early appearances in romantic comedies such as "The Ghost of Girlfriends Past" and "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," which was followed by a spell of shape-shifting roles in the award-winning film "Dallas Buyers Club" and "The Wolf of Wall Street," a period of his career that is affectionately dubbed as the "McConaissance."
