Jon & Kate Have An Announcement To Make

TLC’s promo for Monday’s “special episode” of “Jon & Kate Plus 8” seems to hint at what we’ve all been thinking—that Jon and Kate are headed to divorce court. Without being totally obvious, the ad features Kate saying, “Recently we’ve made some life-changing decisions” while shots of the kids and phrases like “A family in turmoil” and “Where do they go from here?” fade in and out. The spot ends with the words: “Jon and Kate have an announcement.” Tune in on Monday at 9pm to find out what it is. Wouldn’t it be hilarious if their announcement turns out to be that they’re moving from Wernersville, Pennyslvania, to Scranton? Or, even better, that Kate is pregant?! [Us Magazine] Keep reading »

She’s Got The Crazy!

I don’t watch “She’s Got The Look,” and I won’t be watching it in the future, because I am pretty sure it peaked on last night’s episode. “She’s Got The Look,” is basically “America’s Next Top Model” for older ladies. On last night’s episode, one of the contestants, Laurie, lost her marbles during judging, stripped off her top, and started prattling on about beauty being spiritual and wanting to take care of people. It is straight up nuts. Clip above. Keep reading »

  • A source told Us Weekly that T.R. Knight has officially left the cast of “Grey’s Anatomy” behind. [Us Weekly] — The source says he’s “had enough of ABC”, which is perfect, because I’ve had about enough of George O’Malley!
  • Hilary Clinton fractured her arm during a fall on the way to the White House yesterday. She will, as a result, no longer be able to join Angelina Jolie at an event for World Refugee Day. [AOL News] — Double ouch!

Quick Vid: Badass Female Mixed Martial Arts Fighter Knocks Out Reporter

Ha! This guy totally got his butt kicked by a girl. In the middle of an interview, this female MMA fighter grabs the reporter dude and puts him in a choke hold. It takes her, like, three seconds to knock him out cold. After the reporter wakes up, he’s all confused and ditzy. Never underestimate the power of a lady. Keep reading »

Rapist Of Four-Year-Old Girl Sentenced To Only One Year

After being convicted of raping a four-year-old girl, ex-convict and Oklahoman native David Harold Earls is being sentenced to only one year in prison. He reportedly “struck a deal” in which 19 out of 20 of the years he was supposed to spend in jail were suspended.

So, how on earth did this happen? Supposedly, the rape victim (now five), made “contradictory statements during pretrial hearings.” At one point the toddler even left the court room and ran down the hallway. Can you believe that!? I guess that means her rapist is innocent!

Katie Lee Joel And Other People Who’ve Disappeared Off The Face Of TV

After almost five years of marriage, Katie Lee Joel and Billy Joel (ahem, William) have filed for divorce. Now Katie Lee, who is 33 years younger than her soon-to-be ex, will disappear even further into the sunset. You probably don’t even remember that she was once the host of “Top Chef.” Yeah, I didn’t think so. That’s because she only hosted for one season, and viewers complained that she was too robotic. “Top Chef” won—they replaced Katie with Padma Lakshmi, who we love except for the fact that she eats and eats and never seems to gain any weight. But Katie isn’t alone. Check out these former TV hosts who were replaced right before their shows got epically popular. Keep reading »

Get Me A Beer, You Effing Slacker!

The Casa Pocho bar in Cullera, Spain, actually encourages its patrons to swear at and insult the staff. In fact, they offer free drinks to the most original and creative pottymouths. Owner Bernard Mariusz, who was born in Poland, says he thought people needed somewhere to release their stress during the economic recession. “That way they won’t let it out on their family,” he said to Reuters. Spanish may be a romance language, but it does have a rich collection of obscenities, so the bar staff hopefully checks their feelings at the door. [Reuters]

What would be your insult for free beer? Tell us in the comments. And keep it cleanish, people! Keep reading »

Will PETA’s Latest Ad Be Revolutionary?

It’s been a big day for PETA! First they get their vegan organic cotton panties in a wad over President Obama swatting and killing a fly, then they score Lydia Guevara for their latest ad. Who is Lydia Guevara? She happens to be the granddaughter of Cuban guerilla leader, Ernesto “Che” Guevara, who helped Fidel Castro overthrow the Cuban government before being killed in 1967. Depending on who you ask, Che is either a heroic revolutionary or a murderer (or just that really cool looking guy featured on T-shirts sold at Urban Outfitters), but his legacy does inspire a neato costume for Lydia. In the ad she dons a carrot-filled bandoleer. [Animal New York] Keep reading »

Five Puppies Cloned From 9/11 Rescue Dog

You might not remember Trakr the dog, but even after his death, he’s still making headlines. Trakr was the hero dog that located the last survivor amid the smoking rubble at Ground Zero. Five puppies were cloned from Trakr’s DNA after his search and rescue handler, James Symington, won the opportunity in an essay contest. Symington says the puppies look identical to Trakr, even down to the minute details. He plans to train the puppies to be rescue dogs if they have the same abilities as Trakr. “Few dogs are born with exceptional abilities – Trakr was one of those dogs,” he said in a statement released by BioArts International, the California company that arranged the cloning procedure. [People]

I’ve never been a fan of cloning, but I guess if it’s for a good cause like this — [Or cloning my dog Lucca. -- Editor] — then it’s OK. I just wonder if the puppies will have any health complications or will even survive their first year, though. Keep reading »
