Chavril Is Calling It Quits After 14 Months

  • Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger — aka Chavril LaKroeger — are reportedly filing for divorce after just 14 months of marriage. The pair seemed to lack trust and had a policy of never drinking or partying without the other. A source told Us Weekly, “Chad is just a complete jerk in the way he talks to her, and the way he talks to people in general … A lot of her friends don’t like him.” Or maybe she finally listened to his atrocious music? Avril, you’re better off! [Popdust]
  • Gerard Depardieu claims to drink a whopping 14 bottles of wine a day, as you do. He also bragged about killing two lions in self-defense. Suddenly, Gerard Depardieu sounds like an amazing dinner party guest. [Page Six]
  • The doctor who performed the unplanned biopsy on Joan Rivers the day she went into cardiac arrest has been identified as Gwen Korovin, Broadway’s favorite ear, nose and throat specialist. She’s served famous patients like Nathan Lane, Hugh Jackman, Kristin Chenoweth and Julie Andrews. [New York Daily News] Keep reading »

Meet Alley The Record Holding Flying Cat

Alley The Cat
Those Trainers' Cat Ears Are So On Point

One of the new record holders set to appear in the 2015 edition of the “Guinness Book of Records” is Alley the flying cat, who jumps farther than any other kitty on the planet. Alley was rescued in Chicago by Samantha Martin, a trainer for the traveling cat circus Acro-cats (how did I not know that training cats for the circus is a career path!?). Alley was adopted after she was found in looking weak in — surprise — a city alley with three other cats, and Martin began to train her when she showed a love for jumping. In a true (feline) rags-to-riches tale, Alley has learned to leap a whole 6 feet, and now holds the honor of being included under the book’s Longest Cat Jump title. Watch Alley’s amazing skills!

Surge Is Making A Comeback And The World Is Strangely Enthusiastic About It

Surge

The good people at Coca-Cola are bringing Surge back into our lives because the internet made them. Get excited, I guess? The citrus-y 90′s soda, which was sold from 1997-2003, was marketed as a soda or a pseudo-energy drink depending on the day. It was kind of like a poseur version of Mountain Dew but “loaded with carbos” (whatever that means), and was apparently beloved enough to spark a Facebook campaign to bring it back. The Facebook page “SURGE Movement” revealed that the drink has a major cult following, and reps from the movement even flew to Coca-Cola headquarters in Atlanta to talk with the company. Surge’s revival will be facilitated through Amazon, and for $14, you’ll be able to have yourself a dozen cans of prepackaged 90′s nostalgia. I don’t remember much about what Surge tasted like, but if it’s deliciously sugar-filled enough to inspire all this, I wouldn’t exactly be opposed to trying some for old times’ sake. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about ordering a beverage through Amazon, though. If you’re still drawing a blank on what the hell this drink even is, allow me to jog your memory with this 90′s-tastic commercial: Keep reading »

Cheating Dude Confronted By All Three Of His Girlfriends At The Airport

Cheater

Charlie Fisher, a 20-year-old from England, thought he had it made during the roughly six months that he was dating three girls at once. Becky Connery, 17, Lizzie Leeland-Cunningham, 19, and a third girlfriend who’d like to stay anonymous, each thought they had Charlie all to themselves – until they tracked each other down online. According to his now-exes, all three of them had their suspicions while dating Charlie. He heavily guarded his phone history, always knew the right, clever words to say to get himself out of sticky situations and would often tell them he was going to hang out with a male friend when he was actually on his way to see one of his other girlfriends. The three ladies met up at a pub while he was out of the country on vacation and decided to confront him at the airport when he returned home. Keep reading »

Etsy Spotlight: Itty Bitty Starbucks Bracelet

I’m not saying there’s a practical reason to wear itty bitty clay Starbucks cups on your wrist, but I’m not saying there isn’t either. This bracelet can be customized with any of the 60+ food charms seller CMY Klays makes, but that cute little Starbucks cup is totally my favorite. If Frappuccinos are a little too sweet for your taste, you can opt for an iced coffee charm instead. Top it off with a macaron charm for good measure to satisfy your sweet tooth all day long – minus the actual sugar! [$15, CMYKlays]
