The famous Halloween actress noticed that she was included in a photo with Kelleth Cuthbert after her husband, who "doesn't look at a lot of show business news sites," read an article on CNN.
Jamie took to Instagram to inform her followers that she "specifically moved away from the blatant promotions by Fiji… where young women with their trays filled with their wares stood near a designated camera."
"I knew why there was a photographer poised there and I moved away as I said out loud that I didn't want to be doing advertising for either," she reveals, clearly frustrated.
The 60-year-old veteran actress claims she intentionally moved out of the way to avoid being photographed with brands who she doesn't endorse, she was still papped with Fiji Water Girl.
"Clearly this angle shows that I moved from her being behind me and yet from the side it still happens," she said.
She claims that brands must be more cautious around celebrity marketing; "The sponsors of events need to get permission from people when they get them to take their picture next to products," she says.
She is currently the lone star to slam Fiji Water for their PR stunt at the awards show, which is in its 76th year.
Richard Madden, Amy Adams, Idris Elba and Jim Carrey were all pictured with Cuthbert loitering in the background but haven't commented as of yet. Whose side are you on? We stan Queen Curtis.
The America's Got Talent judge attended Heidi Klum's annual NYC Halloween party and appeared to confirm that Posh Spice did in fact cause a feud among the band by rejecting offers for a worldwide tour.
She was accompanied by her close pal Gary Madatyan, who wore a jersey which read “Beckham” and held a sign that read: “Please, please, please do it for the Spice fans."
They're certainly trying to send us a message, that's for sure!
While speaking on RTÉ's Morning Ireland, Mr O'Dwyer said that this was at least six times busier than the normal Wednesday night, but relatively on the same wavelength as past Halloweens.
He also said that anti-social behaviour was actually decreasing and the number of injuries are being reduced as a result of organised events by local authorities in the run-up to this year's Halloween.
This past month, Gardaí have been clamping down on the gathering of incendiary items such as fireworks or bonfire materials, which appears to have had positive effects.
"I can’t stress how positive it is to have the organised events. It keeps people in a safe environment," said Mr O'Dwyer.
The assistant fire chief described the situations where cars were actually being driven onto dwindling bonfires in the early hours of the morning, as they die down.
He claimed that people will do "anything to keep them going", and that the major danger with illegal bonfires is the combustible materials which people throw onto them, for example aerosol cans and gas cylinders.
"There is no safe distance" for those types of fuels.

Kylie and daughter Stormi definitely got into the Halloween spirit.
Not only did Kylie take to Instagram to show off their stunning mum and baby matching costumes, with them both dressed in cute pick butterfly wings, but the 21-year-old also gave fans a glimpse at her costume from Halloween 2018.
The snap on her Instagram stories shows a heavily pregnant Kylie enjoying the holiday festivities.
The reality TV star and businesswoman posted three pictures from last year on her stories, from when she was hiding her pregnancy.
She said to her fans, "I know I have a lot of costumes going on this year but I'm not finished. I have just one more. One more, I promise."
The next video showed her dancing in a short white mini dress that showed off her blossoming bump.
She can then be seen holding her stomach in her angel costume, complete with giant feathered wings.
The video was timestamped '29th October 2017' which makes it three months before Stormi's birth.
She captioned it, "throwback to last year, cooking Stormi."
Kylie has kept fans up to date with her Halloween celebrations by posting pictures on Instagram of herself as a human Barbie doll and most recently one of herself and her little one dressed up and holding a lightning bolt.
She captioned it, "Stormi Weather" which delighted her 118 million followers who were quick to comment.
One wrote, "this is the cutest" while another said, "best idea for a Halloween costume ever!"
Kiernan Shipka of Mad Men fame steps into the role of a sweet-looking girl with a wicked secret. We’re hooked already, tbh.
The modern-day teen drama is perfect for the time. Sabrina Spellman is a seriously empowered, political gal who we can easily see protesting on the streets looking glam AF, with Harvey on her arm.
On her 16th birthday, Sabrina will have to choose “between two worlds: the witch world of her family and the human world of her friends.”
The main gal herself is ordered to choose between the mortal world and the world of Satan, but it is only a deceitful imposter of a choice, in reality she has no control over what is going on around her.
Forces around her are trying to pull her a million ways, and the secret is simmering throughout the opening episodes in regards to why exactly she is being lied to about her heritage.
Her ‘Dark Baptism’ (what even?) is the night where her life-changing decision must be made, and it’s quite a scene.
Sabrina, whose father was a powerful Satanic priest (the Salem equivalent of your dad being on the Supreme Court) and whose mother was a mortal, is expected to pledge allegiance to the Dark Lord, Lucifer himself, and renounce her human ties.
In return, she gets unfathomable power—but only in return for total and unquestionable loyalty.
Naturally, Sabrina doesn’t want to leave her friends and boyfriend behind, which is the consequence of choosing to serve the devil. So far, so relatable.
Harvey is adorbs to be fair; Disney Channel doesn’t seem suitable for child actor Ross Lynch in this context. He’s a slightly minor character in the initial few episodes, with the main draw obviously being Sabrina and her struggle surrounding her Sweet Sixteen.
The show paints a far more macabre, historically accurate picture of witchcraft, which has long been associated with sexual deviance and the corruptible power of women.
First of all – I LOVE that she refuses to be bullied into making a choice – women are often cornered into sacrificing parts of who they are, but this gal is having NONE of it.
Her character is also more complex than her initial impression conveys- there are undoubtedly dark parts to her light aura. She is far too casual when discussing hexing her principal, for example. The spider scene which accompanies this hex is traumatic as a total arachnophobe, but I'll forgive them for it. Eventually.
I wasn't expecting to be genuinely spooked by some of the content, but it made it even more enjoyable. Think of it like a dramatic teenage female Harry Potter: an orphan with a colossal weight on her shoulders, an animal sidekick and some MAD sorcery skills.
Plenty of freaky stuff starts happening from the get go: she takes a bite of a malum malus—an evil apple, and has a vision of witches hanging from a tree.
She is told she must sign the Book of the Beast in the woods with her own blood. She gets a blood curse. The list goes on, really. The darkness and absurdity create a kind of gruesome and macabre humour, which grows as the episodes progress.
The audience becomes pretty desensitised to the weirdness, after all we have seen some pretty ridiculous stories from other YA series (Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Twilight etc).
I was part of the generation that watched the 1990's Sabrina until the BITTER END. The bitter end being, of course, her wedding to long-time on and off boyfriend, Harvey.
The show ran from 1996 until 2003, and was far more comedic and slapstick than the current endeavour. Screwball humour, a hilarious witty cat named Salem and a leading lady who was far more relatable than other female characters on TV.
Kiernan Shipka, who plays the protagonist, said, “It’s nothing like the ‘90s sassy, mean Salem at all. That’s its own thing that we’re not going to try to compete with or be in the slightest because you can’t live up to that in any way. This is more of a subtle sort of nod, I would say, to the old show.”
She's dead right, the new show is 100% not trying to imitate any of its predecessors, and this works in its favour. Loyalists of the Melissa Joan Hart edition will be fairly baffled at the lack of humour, and disappointed about Salem the wisecracking kitty being MUTE.
I'll be honest, this devastated me. Salem was hilarious, the original was voiced by Nick Bakay and he's still iconic for his sassiness. The modern day Salem might well speak in future, the show's creator hasn't ruled it out.
The main positive of creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacaso's take on the show is the relevance to modern day and age of Me Too.
At Baxter High School, Sabrina stands up to bullies and founds a women’s intersectional cultural and creative association (WICCA) to provide students with support.
Her BFF Susie is gender non-conforming and suffers for it, and her STUH-NING cousin Ambrose (Chance Perdomo) is pansexual. He is such an aesthetically pleasing man, here's his Instagram for you all to creep on if you don't believe me.
He could win Most Beautiful Mortician of All Time any day, but who can say if this is a hotly contested competition.
One down-side of Sabrina for me is the over-the-top theatricality in some parts, but we can’t deny it’s entertainment value.
The orgy scenes, for example, were a bit much considering Sabrina Spellman is sixteen and has an adorable boyfriend, but we get what they were going for.
Maybe they’re trying to embody the wilderness and confusion of adolescence, or maybe they’re just in the mood for some seriously sinister teenage drama. Who can tell?
What no one can deny about the Archie Comics reboots is that teenage angst is taken totally seriously; the adolescent frustrations, anxieties, passions and friendships are all explored and given a platform.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa of Riverdale fame has his roots showing in this context. Riverdale had a plot in season one and has now just completely gone off in bizarre tangents, hopefully Sabrina doesn't end up going down this route.
Melissa Joan Hart herself has given the Netflix effort her stamp of approval.
One thing's for sure: you won’t be bored, and you’ll definitely appreciate the fun she has with her wicked skills.
It's highly-enjoyable television that made me want to join a coven and curse the entire patriarchy. Well, even more so than I did before…
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is currently streaming on Netflix.
Those that revel in the delightfully fiendish time of year that is Halloween are living (dead) the dream right now. The scary films, the frightening puns, the gloriously ghoulish costumes; it's hell on earth – and you know you love it. Special attention is put into choosing your spooky attire; you want a look that's both terrifying AND on trend.
To stand out from the crowd, many of us opt to take things to another level of horror and pop in special scary contact lenses – taking the scream factor from two to twenty if done right. However, caution must be taken when it comes to using these; used incorrectly and you could seriously damage your sight. We've all heard the horror stories. Because if you can't see a potential hot Dracula to sink your fangs into on All Hallow's Eve, WTF is the point, really?
Here's what you need to know – and why caution needs to be taken – before buying and using Halloween contact lenses:
Yes, it can be very tempting it can be to order some cheap, creepy contact lenses online the day before the party, without the hassle of having to go into a store and have lenses properly fit (and we've all probably done it).
However, any type of contact lens – no matter where they’re from – that haven’t been properly fitted by an eye care professional can cause serious damage to your eyes. Specsavers, for example, will fit you for some – they aren't the cheapest on the market, but you know you're getting a quality pair which will minimise any risk to your eyes.
What will happen if I just buy a cheap and cheerful pair for the day/night?
Some eye conditions people can experience after wearing these types of lenses include:
Decreased, or blurry vision
Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
Scratches on the cornea
Blindness, in extreme cases
You might think you'll be fine just wearing them as a once-off, but do you really want to take that risk? Experts have said don't do it.
Yes.In Ireland, it's illegal for anyone to sell contact lenses unless they are supplied to a valid contact lens prescription. All lenses, including non-prescription lenses, are now classed as medical devices, and should only be supplied or supervised by a registered optician.
What happens if I do wear some that I've just bought online or in a shop?
Options would advise against wearing cheap contact lenses from the Internet and without a proper prescription, especially if you have never worn contacts before. But if you have or are planning to, here are some things you can do to ensure your eyes stay safe and healthy.
There’s a little under a week to go until Halloween and some people are more ready than ever for the spooky holiday. People have been planning their costumes, practising their makeup looks and organising festivities for quite some time, and others (myself included) have left everything until the last minute.
I am so envious of those who are constantly prepared for All Hallows Eve. There have been many years where I frantically run around my local shopping centre looking for the perfect costume, but alas, there’s nothing but a rogue cowboy hat and a kid’s princess dress left on the shelves.
Thankfully, the makeup mavericks of Instagram are here to save the day for those of you who are like me. Us procrastinators need all the help we can get, especially if you’re invited to a last minute Halloween celebration.
I’ve conjured up a list of the best (and easiest) makeup looks that will make Halloween a lot easier for my fellow procrastinators
This look will take all of five minutes to achieve. All you need is some eyeliner and you’re good to go. Draw three whiskers on each of your cheeks and dab on a little black nose on the tip of yours and hey-presto you’re a cat. Is it one of the most over-done costumes? Yes. But will it make your night a hell of a lot less stressful? YES.
The wonderful Rebekah O’Leary came to our rescue with this incredible Willy Wonka inspired look. Violet is one of the movies most iconic characters so who better to dress up as for Halloween? Plus, you can rock a purple tracksuit for this look. Any excuse to be comfortable.
Dress up as this beloved mythical creature by making the most of your glitter collection. Use your boldest and most colourful lipstick and go to town with the rhinestones to transform yourself into a unicorn. Add a unicorn headband and you’re good to go.
She is probably the most loved member of the Suicide Squad so embrace the pigtails and smeared lipstick this Halloween. Forget about your makeup being flawless because the messier it is the better. Add some red and blue temporary dye to your hair to achieve the look.
The Pulp Fiction leading lady is by far one of the coolest characters to dress up as for Halloween. All you need is a dramatic red lip and the nose-bleed stain and you’re good to go. Pop on a white blouse and some black skinny jeans and you’ve achieved Mia’s bad-ass look.
