    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is addressing his brother's time on "The Bachelorette" one week before the show's finale.

    In a new interview with WISN, the former Super Bowl MVP admitted that he hasn't watched Jordan Rodgers compete for JoJo Fletcher's heart on the ABC reality series. At the same time, he wishes his brother well going into the final episode.

    "I haven't seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn't really affected me a whole lot," he shared during training camp.

    When asked to elaborate on the nature of his relationship with Jordan, Aaron said he would like to keep things private.

    Yoga Pants Parade Protests Op-Ed in Rhode Island

    [NATL] Yoga Pants Parade Protests Op-Ed in Rhode Island
    Hundreds of people took to the streets in Barrington, Rhode Island this weekend to protest an op-ed written in the local newspaper that many found offensive. The letter, written by Alan Sorrentino, critiques older women who wear yoga pants in public, saying the clothing does not compliment a woman over 20 years-old. "This is way more than yoga pants. It is women fed up with the policing of our wardrobes," said parade organizer, Jamie Burke. Sorrentino claims that his op-ed was just a joke but many are calling his comments sexist.

    "As far as those kinds of things go, I've always found that it's a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I'm just--I'm not going to speak on those things," he said. "But I wish him well in the competition."

    Earlier in the season, Fletcher traveled to Jordan's high school where a photo of Aaron was placed on the wall. Jordan would later admit that he's been estranged from his older brother for the last two years.

    "It doesn't need to be a topic," Jordan said before introducing Fletcher to his family during hometown dates. "I'll just tell them we talked about it, and yeah."

    Brother Luke Rodgers added, "It's something we don't really like to talk about a lot. It pains both of us not to have that relationship. We miss our brother. We just are trusting that God brings things full circle. And just wish that everything would just get back to us being a family."

    If the family dynamics impacted Fletcher, the 25-year-old didn't show it. In fact, Jordan Rodgers is now competing against Robby Hayes for the final rose.

    Baby Lemur Makes London Zoo Debut

    [NATL-DFW] Baby Lemur Makes London Zoo Debut

    London Zoo is welcoming the first ever baby aye-aye lemur just in time for Halloween.

    The creepy-looking creature was actually born on July 1 but has only emerged from its secluded nesting box for the first time this week.

    The species of lemur (formally known as Daubentonia madagascariensis) are unique in that they have an unusually large middle finger and are associated with doom in their native Madagascar. Natives there believe that if an aye-aye points its long finger at you, death is not far away.

    Zookeepers expressed their excitement at the birth although they only saw the baby recently as it has been hiding in its nest box.
