The Proud Family has finally returned, more than 20 years after it first hit Disney Channel in September 2001.Starring original voice cast members Kyla Pratt, Karen Malina White, Soleil Moon Frye, Alisa Reyes and more, Disney+’s revival series The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder will bring Penny Proud (Pratt) into 2022 as she explores her teenage years.

In addition to further spotlighting Penny’s coming-of-age, creator and EP Bruce W. Smith and producer Ralph Farquhar said during Friday’s TCA panel that the show will take on topics relevant to today’s bigger conversations.“A lot has changed in 20 years, that’s for sureBefore, we used to have to tip top and used coded language,” said Farquhar, who served as an executive producer on the original series. “Now we can go straight at it.”He went on to highlight the new additions to The Proud Family world: husbands Randall and Barry Leibowitz-Jenkins, voiced respectively by Billy Porter and Zachary Quinto, and Penny’s new gender non-confirming friend Michael Collins.

The introduction of LGBTQ+ characters into the world of The Proud Family is the “biggest change,” fans, both returning and new, can expect, he said.EJ Johnson, who takes on Michael Collins said that he’s excited for the impact and visibility of queer kids, this series will bring.“Just to have a character who’s out and proud and fabulous…I was blown away that this character exists,” he said.Even while “upgrading” the series with more prominent conversations about identity, social media and growing up in today’s world, Smith said that the series remains true to its core – whether that’s with the original cast members or the desire to tell stories authentically.“The important asset of this is making sure that both

Net worth of richest tennis star is more than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo combined
tennis player has a net worth more than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's combined, yet you've probably never even heard of him.Romanian Ion Tiriac, who hung up his racket in 1979, only made around £200,000 during his career.He won the French Open Doubles title in 1970 and reached the semi-final of Wimbledon that same year before fading into relative obscurity.Following his retirement from the game, the Romanian embarked on a coaching career and worked with the likes of compatriot Ilie Nastase and even a young Boris Becker.In the decades since, he's proved himself a savvy businessman and made a string of good investment decisions which saw him turn that cash into a fortune believed to be around £1.5 billion.In comparison, his wealth dwarves the combined net worth of Messi (£440 million) and Ronaldo (£368 million) who are two of the richest active sports stars on the planet.Towards the end of the Cold War, Tiriac took advantage of fading communism in his native Romania to become the first to open a privately-owned bank, and the Tiriac Bank has been a huge financial success.Under the company Tiriac Holdings Ltd, he has since branched out into retail, insurance and airline businesses and by 2007 had been named by Forbes as Romania's first billionaire.According to data compiled by Forbes, he's the third wealthiest man in sport, behind WWE owner Vince McMahon and NBA legend Michael Jordan.What's the first thing you'd buy if you had Ion Tiriac's fortune and why?

EuroMillions winners say dog was 'dream come true' to help disabled daughter
Euromillions draw have said it was a "dream come true" when they could finally afford a support dog for their severely disabled daughter.Adam and Amy Pryor from from Maidstone, Kent revealed golden labrador Merlin has "brought a bit of magic" back into their lives while they and their daughter Charlotte had to shield during the pandemic.Charlotte was born seven weeks premature with a cleft palate and other life-limiting conditions.She has life-limiting conditions including a chromosome 11 abnormality, which has caused extensive developmental challenges, hearing difficulties and issues with her eyesight as well as her mobility.Her loving parents had to spend much of the early part of her life going to and from from hospital, with money worries mounting for the family as the end of Mrs Pryor's maternity pay approached.But everything changed when the couple struck lucky and won £1 million in a EuroMillions draw in August 2017.Mum Amy, 32, grew up with dogs and has always wanted to have a family dog, so when one of Charlotte's support workers mentioned an organisation which trains assistance dogs that may be suitable she immediately made the call.Almost a year after the initial inquiry to Supporting Paws, Merlin, a golden Labrador, was born.The couple believe that without the win, Charlotte's development would never have been in a position to entertain the idea of having a pet, let alone a specially trained assistance dog.Mr Pryor, 38, said: “Our lottery win has enabled us to do so much, from buying a bigger home with space for a specialist sensory room, to Amy giving up work to take care of Charlotte.“But Merlin is by far our favourite purchase.”Charlotte Chaney from Supporting Paws described the dog's role, saying:

Stacey Soloman reveals adorable meaning behind her new adopted dog Teddy's name
Stacey Soloman has revealed the adorable hidden meaning behind her new adopted dog's name.The Loose Women star welcomed the adorable pet to her family after her previous family dog Theo died just two weeks ago.The 32-year-old added the six-month-old cocker spaniel to her home at Pickle Cottage to keep their other dog Peanut company.The mum-of-four shared on her Instagram the reason to why they chose the name Teddy and the hidden tribute to their former pet Theo.Sharing a sweet photo of Teddy sitting down, she penned: "We called him Teddy because Teddy can be short for 'Theodore' so we thought it was a special tribute to Theo."Stacey revealed how she has received many questions about the new dog and added some extra facts about him to her story titled, All about TEDDY.She added: "We didn't pick him out but we said we would take any dog suitable for young children and another dog."We didn't mind what breed, colour, coat anything as long as he would be happy and it was right. And along came Teddy."The TV star went on to explain why Teddy had been rescued, she wrote: "I have no idea why or how anyone could not want him or he wouldn't be 'good' enough."But apparently he is no where near the size he should be for his breed and that was one of the main reasons why he wasn't kept by the breeder."Stacey visited the pup on Sunday evening with her four children and fiancé Joe Swash before she later welcomed him home the next day.
