8 Delicious “Downton Abbey” Season 4 Spoilers To Get You Excited For Its Return

8 Delicious 'Downton Abbey' Season 4 Spoilers to Get You Excited for Its Return

“Downton Abbey” fans, we have more season four spoilers – nothing that will ruin any big surprises for us, just a few bites to whet our appetites for (SIGH) January. Season 4 throws us smack dab into 1922, the roaring ’20s, and the Crawleys are keeping up. Is Edith’s married editor still chasing her? How close do Tom and Lady Mary get? And what’s this we hear about Thomas revealing to Lady Cora how that unfortunate miscarriage really happened?

1. Thomas may have spilled the soap story to Lady Cora. Maybe that’s what finally pushes O’Brien out of the house? In case you’ve forgotten (how could anyone?), Cora’s maid O’Brien deliberately placed a bar of soap on the floor, so when Cora left her bath, she slipped on it and had a miscarriage. Ooh O’Brien. So much guilt to carry around with you. Anyway, we don’t know this for certain, but there are hints that Thomas tells Lady Cora about the soap incident. Read more on The Stir…

“Angel Priest” Appears Out of Nowhere & Saves Woman Trapped in Car

Do you believe in angels? Chances are you do. Know how I know? Because apparently eight out of ten Americans believe in angels. That’s more people than believe that the sun will rise tomorrow! And when you hear this story, you may start believing if you don’t, and if you do, then your belief in angels will just get stronger!

So it goes like this … A woman in Missouri gets hit head-on by a drunk driver. Her Mercedes is totally mangled and she’s trapped within the wreckage. Emergency responders are trying to get her out, but she’s stuck between the steering wheel and the seat and not even the many responders on the scene can get her out. Then … the clouds parted and harps twanged. Well, not really. But they might as well have. Because suddenly a priest appeared out of nowhere on a road that had been blocked off for miles.

Little Girl Who Got Deadly Brain-Eating Amoeba From Lake Is Making Miraculous Recovery

Amazing, miraculous news out of Little Rock, Arkansas! The poor 12-year-old girl who contracted a rare brain amoeba from swimming in a water park is showing signs of improvement. If she survives the amoeba, which eats away at brain tissue, she will be the third known person in the world to do so. From the beginning, Kali Hardig’s mom has been adamant that her little girl will be the third person, even making up T-shirts saying “#3″ — and she hopefully will be right. Kali is awake now and has even squeezed her mom’s hand. Read more at The Stir…

Geraldo Rivera Tweets Nude Selfie

Geraldo Rivera Tweets Nude Selfie

Over the weekend people checking into Twitter hoping to hear news of Kate Middleton’s labor were instead punished by a truly disturbing image. If you felt a disturbance in the force yesterday, if you heard the sound of screaming all over the world, this is why: Geraldo Rivera posted a nude selfie, sideways, with the caption, “70 is the new 50.” Scores of Twitter users were immediately blinded by the sight of Rivera wearing nothing but rose-tinted glasses (indeed …) and a bath towel tied way too low around his hips. Read more on The Stir…

8 Love Rules Made to Be Broken

8 Love Rules Made to Be Broken

When I heard about the book, It’s Okay to Sleep With Him on the First Date my first thought was: ORLLY? Tell me more! After watching a whole parade of books about dating rules through my lifetime, from THE RULES to 30-Day Love Detox (no sex for the first 30 days), it’s refreshing to see a book that’s all about debunking traditional dating rules. But is the message too good to be true? The point authors Andrea Syrtash and Jeff Wilser are making is simple: Trust yourself.

Well that’s easy to say if you’re not a neurotic basket case with non-stop monkey chatter running through your brain. Don’t we need dating rules to save ourselves from ourselves, or do dating rules really prevent us from being our most authentic selves? I decided to take some of the rules Syrtash and Wilser debunk in their book and see what my friends think about them. Turns out they’ve broken most of these rules, too — with no regrets.

“Angry Trayvon” Game Makes A Tasteless Mockery Of Martin’s Shooting

'Angry Trayvon' Game Makes a Tasteless Mockery of Martin's Shooting

It’s been more than a year now since 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot at close range by George Zimmerman while Zimmerman was on neighborhood watch. Just last week, we watched Trayvon Martin’s mother’s brave testimony in court as she was forced to listen to her son’s dying cries. Whether or not you believe Zimmerman is guilty or innocent of murder, I think there is something we can all agree on: An app named Angry Trayvon has NO place on the market.

Seriously, it exists. Well, existed. The game, which allows users to control a character rockin’ a hoodie as he goes on a killing rampage around Brooklyn, has caused QUITE the stir. Both Apple and Google allowed the game into their app stores. Since then, its Facebook page has been deleted and both Apple and Google say it’s been removed from their stores.

Seriously, I wish this was a joke. Read more on The Stir…

One of the most anticipated new roles for the upcoming season four of “Game of Thrones” has been cast! Prince Oberyn Martell, aka theRed Viper, will be played by Chilean actor Pedro Pascal.

Sweet! Okay, so who is the Red Viper, exactly? Well, if you want to know what happens to him in A Storm of Swords, we’ve covered that already. (Don’t click if you don’t want any spoilers for the upcoming season.) As of now, we can say that, in the book, Martell has a lined face with thin eyebrows, black, snake-like eyes, black hair, and a sharp nose. He’s pretty good-looking as well. Read more on The Stir…

Overweight Girl Dating Thin Guy Says She’s The Victim Of Constant Cruel Attacks

overweight-girl-dating-thin-guy

Let’s face it, we all occasionally judge couples we see on the street. Things quickly pop into your brain, like a running narrative. Oh, they’re cute. Eck, get a room! I can’t believe she’s with him. I can’t believe he’s with her. You get the point. But most of us keeps our traps shut about it. But that isn’t the case with Gloria Shuri Nava, who has been dating a hot Scottish guy for almost two years. The problem? Gloria is overweight. Her boyfriend is not. And people just can’t seem to believe that he would want to be with her unless he had some nefarious purpose in mind.

In an essay for Yahoo!, Gloria writes that wherever the pair go, “people give us confused looks that say, ‘He can do better than her!’” Gloria might be a bit paranoid. However, she says that people do more than just stare. They also say things like, “Is he blind?”; “He’s only with you to get a green card”; and “It’s great he can see past your looks.” Seriously, where does Gloria live? Rudeville?!  Read more on TheStir…
