The pop star, 25, showed fans his new nighttime routine on his Instagram Stories on Sunday, passing his phone off to his wife, Hailey Baldwin, 22, so she could document the “Sorry” singer catching some zzz’s inside his new portable hyperbaric therapy tube.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy isn’t typically used for treating depression, but according to Logan Poudel of Santa Fe Spring, California-based OxyHealth, it has been proven effective for use on sufferers of PTSD.
“It increases the amount of oxygen in the body by double within an hour, which reduces inflammation in the body, including the muscles, joints and brain,” Poudel told Page Six. He added that while “it’s not detrimental” to spend the night inside one of the chambers, “there’s no medical benefit past two hours.”
“Often the people who sleep in them are NFL players,” Poudel continued. “It makes it painless to finally sleep once the pressure is formed. One hour in the unit at pressure is the equivalent of a three-hour nap. So those suffering insomnia due to PTSD or stress finally get to rest and decompress.”
Bethenny Frankel once blasted her ex-husband as “white trash” — and doused him with water while he was sleeping, she admitted on the stand Monday.
The “Real Housewives of New York City” star acknowledged her role in her increasingly hostile relationship with Jason Hoppy.
The former couple continued living together at their Hudson Street condo after Frankel filed for divorce in January 2013.
“You called him white trash, correct?” probed Hoppy’s lawyer Robert Wallack on the fourth day of their child custody hearing in Manhattan Supreme Court.
“I think I called his family that,” she replied.
Wallack then made her read an old transcript from a 2014 hearing in the long-running case, when she testified that she called him “white trash” after he claimed to have found an “investor” to bankroll his divorce fight.
“You called him white trash?” Wallack repeated.
“Yes,” she finally admitted.
Frankel and Hoppy share joint custody of their 8-year-old daughter Bryn but the reality TV star is fighting for extra time with the girl, as well as sole decision-making power.
“I have tried everything to collaborate and work in the best interest of my daughter. What is best for Bryn is to have a rational person who is making good decisions,” she testified earlier in the day.
According to USA Today, which obtained a copy of the memoir, Hasselbeck was absolutely devastated by the decision, and she described being “bent over” with “shock, asthma, and betrayal” in that moment. “I felt like the walls of the building were folding in on me,” she wrote in her book.
In “Point of View,” Hasselbeck detailed her 10 year tenure on The View, which she co-hosted from 2003 to 2013. However, in March 2013, things “had begun to feel unusual” around the set, and she had an inkling that changes were coming. Hasselbeck wrote that one day, a View producer and an ABC executive came to her office and informed her that the show was “going in a less political direction” — and as such, her contract would not be renewed for another season. “I could not breathe — literally, could not breathe,” she wrote of the moment, adding that she “asked permission” to grab her inhaler. “I was bent over — shock, asthma, and betrayal all stealing my wind.”
Hasselbeck went on to say that she attempted to change ABC’s mind, but to no avail. “‘Was there something I could have done differently?’” she recalled asking. “‘Can I do something differently now? If you would just tell me, I would work on that — and make it better.’” The longtime host continued, “I kept asking, trying to figure out how to get it back, trying to get it all back.”
According to Hasselbeck, she spent an hour and a half “just sobbing” and attempting to convince the producer and the exec to reverse their decision. “‘I have come here and had babies and shared my heart,’” she recalled telling them. “‘I have done my work, and I just don’t understand. Why did you not tell me there was somehting I could have done better, so I could have done that?’ Blank stares met those anguished words.” She continued to explain her many emotions in that moment. “Feeling a dose of betrayal and a whopper of confusion, I felt like the walls of the building were folding in on me,” wrote Hasselbeck.
“Point of View: A Fresh Look at Work, Faith, and Freedom” is now available for purchase. Hasselbeck will also be appearing on The View today, Tuesday, March 26, to discuss her new memoir.
