Trump puts Pence in charge of transition and appoints Ivanka and Jared Kushner to team

Donald Trump has organized his first staff-shakeup before he even takes office, ousting New Jersey governor Chris Christie as head of his presidential transition and appointing running mate Mike Pence (bottom right) to chair the effort.

Huma Abedin weeps openly as she returns to Clinton campaign headquarters

Hillary Clinton's closest aide wept as she went back to the Brooklyn headquarters of the doomed bid for the presidency. The future for Abedin, 40, is unclear and her marriage is over. The aide has worked for nobody except Clinton since she was an intern for the then First Lady in Bill Clinton's White House. Throughout the campaign she was at her boss's side - but then with less than two weeks to go until polling day the FBI explosively revealed they were looking at 650,000 of her emails found on her pervert ex-husband Anthony Weiner's laptop. He is being investigated for sexting a 15-year-old. The revelation is being blamed by Clinton aides for - at least in part - costing them the campaign. Abedin, 40, has seen her marriage collapse during the campaign when Weiner was caught sexting an adult, and was herself under FBI investigation for her handling of classified material.

If she is to run for the Congress seat when Lowey retires, Chelsea could make the Chappaqua address her legal residence.

Joan Rivers had to woo daughter back after Melissa blamed her for her father's suicide

Joan Rivers would do anything for her daughter Melissa, and even manipulated her into the celebrity sphere after the death of her husband, Edgar Rosenberg, who committed suicide in 1987.
