Kidnapped Baby!

Image

A woman who pretended to be pregnant stole her half-sister’s newborn son from a Wisconsin home and left him in a storage crate outside an Iowa gas station in frigid temperatures as police closed in, according to court documents filed Friday. 

Federal prosecutors in Madison charged Kristen Smith of Denver with kidnapping Friday afternoon, hours after an Iowa police chief miraculously discovered Kayden Powell, who is nearly a week old, alive and well in the plastic storage crate that morning. Police found a prosthetic pregnancy belly in Smith’s car along with baby clothes, a car seat and a stroller, but no sign of Kayden, according to the affidavit. 

The discovery of the infant shortly after 10 a.m. Friday capped a frantic search that involved scores of police officers in Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa. 

Thank God that baby was still alive!

He was Sooooo Close!

Scary moment for Taylor Swift … when an obsessed fan blew past security and confronted her on stage at her concert in London … while Taylor’s bodyguards scrambled to save her.

It all went down at the O2 Arena … when Taylor was performing her smash song, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”

That’s when a pretty sizable male fan charged the stage … and got face-to-face with the singer.

Moments later, two male security guards sprinted to Taylor’s side … grabbed the stage intruder by the arms … and ripped him off the stage.

Of course, Taylor continued the show like nothing ever happened.

Scary!

Dick doesn’t like Penis Jokes…How ironic

Image

Dick Van Dyke turned down a guest appearance on Two and A Half Men because the show was “too raunchy.”

On Thursday’s episode Carl Reiner plays a wealthy man who proposed to Holland Taylor. So the characters played by Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer throw him a surprise bachelor party with comedy icons Tim Conway, Steve Lawrence and Garry Marshall.

Van Dyke, 88, was supposed to join the guest stars, but our insider says, “He didn’t like the script — there were too many penis jokes.”

The producers tried so hard to get Van Dyke that they gave all the naughty jokes to the other men. Dick, who starred in Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, still turned it down not wanting to tarnish his squeaky clean image.

At his age who cares about his clean image? Live it up man!

Barney Ad Campaign Features 17 Transgender Models

Image

High-end N.Y.C. shopping mecca Barneys New York has long been a trailblazer, from its spectacular window displays to its spotlighting of young up-and-coming designers. And now they’re doing it again, featuring 17 diverse transgender models in a black-and-white campaign shot by legendary fashion photographer Bruce Weber, called “Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters.”

Weber shot a series of photographs and videos for the campaign that feature his subjects — some professional models, others musicians, students and activists — around N.Y.C., dressed in designer clothing and often surrounded by friends and family. The photos will be accompanied by personal interviews with each model about their personal experience as a transgender person, and a longer video and several short films featuring the models will live on Barneys.com.

“I hope that my photographs and films of these 17 new friends, who are transgender men and women, convey the respect I have for them and how I stand in awe of their courage to face the world,” Weber said in a statement.

Gosh, I wish I were as pretty as these models!  I love when people are happy! 

Amanda Knox Won’t Go Back to Italy

Calling her murder conviction “not right and not fair,” a clearly rattled Amanda Knox on Friday described her incredulous reaction to Thursday’s verdict, and vowed never to return to Italy – at least not voluntarily. 

“I couldn’t believe what I was hearing,” Knox, 26, tells Good Morning America. “I did not expect this to happen. I really expected so much more from the Italian justice system. They found me innocent once before.” 

Instead, the court sentenced her to more than 28 years in prison for the 2007 murder of her English roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia. 

Knox was clearly emotional Friday, struggling at times to maintain her composure. “I will never go willingly back to the place where … I’m going to fight this to the very end. It’s not right, and it’s not fair,” she said. 

Knox spent four years in prison after being convicted earlier, but an appeals court threw out the conviction in 2011. Italy’s supreme court later ordered the case retried.

Amanda Knox’s Ex-Boyfriend Stopped by Police at Italian Border

Police on Friday found Amanda Knox‘s ex-boyfriend near Italy’s border with Slovenia and Austria, hours after he and the American student were convicted for a second time in the death of British student Meredith Kercher

Raffaele Sollecito’s lawyer, Luca Maori, said his client was in the area of Italy’s northeastern border because that’s where his current girlfriend lives, and that he went voluntarily to police.

However, the cabinet chief of the Udine police station, Giovanni Belmonte, said police showed up at about 1 a.m. Friday at a hotel in Venzone, a tiny town of 2,200 about 40 kilometers from the border, where Sollecito and the girlfriend were staying.

They brought him to the Udine police station, took his passport and put a stamp in his Italian identity papers showing that he cannot leave the country, as mandated by the appeals court in Florence.

Sollecito Calm and Cooperative

Since the court didn’t order Sollecito detained, he will be freed as soon as the paperwork is completed, Belmonte said. He said Sollecito was calm and came willingly to the station, with his girlfriend driving behind.

An Italian court has found Amanda Knox guilty of murder in her latest trial on Thursday, ABC reports.

This is the third trial for Knox and her Italian ex-boyfriend, Rafaelle Sollecito, in the 2007 murder of Knox’s British roommate, Meredith Kercher. An Italian court found Knox and Sollecito guilty in 2009, but the pair was acquitted in 2011 on appeal after spending four years in jail.

Knox returned to the Seattle area to resume her studies until Italy’s highest court struck down the appellate decision in March 2013.

As USA Today notes, the Knox saga has grabbed headlines around the world, with the University of Washington student being portrayed “both as a she-devil bent on sexual adventure and as a naif caught up in Italy’s Byzantine justice system.”

With the conviction, Knox and Sollecito’s case will return to the supreme court. If the verdict is upheld, Italy could seek to extradite Knox to serve her sentence. This process could take months, and according to legal experts, the U.S. might challenge extradition on the basis of “double jeopardy,” a defense that forbids a defendant from being tried again for the same crime after an acquittal.

Amanda had said  a while ago that if she is found guilty- she will run.

Ghetto Rich?

Brandi Glanville is an open book. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star may live in an expensive area code and show up at various red carpets year round, but getting to where she is now was no easy feat. The 41-year-old recently touched on her less than financially abundant life while she was married to ex-husband Eddie Cibrian.

“Eddie and I were never truly rich,” Glanville says.. “We were ghetto rich. We had the nice cars, the nice house and the nice jewels, but we probably had a second and a third mortgage. We were living paycheck to paycheck, with no savings.”

The pair may have had hard times making ends meet, but there was one detail during their time together that was clear to Glanville — her role in the house. “I had a hot dinner served on time every night and I looked great on his arm,” she said. “That was my role.”


Ask her anything….she’ll tell you!

16 Year Old Survives Skydiving fall of 3,000 ft!

Image

A 16-year-old Texas girl who plummeted more than 3,000 feet to the ground in an Oklahoma skydiving accident survived and is recovering from her many injuries, a doctor said Tuesday.

Dr. Jeffrey Bender, a trauma surgeon at OU Medical Center who treated Makenzie Wethington when she was flown Saturday from a skydiving school in Chickasha, said the girl hurt her liver and broke her pelvis, lumbar spine in her lower back, a shoulder blade and several ribs. She also has a broken tooth.

“I don’t know the particulars of the accident as I wasn’t there. But if she truly fell 3,000 feet, I have no idea how she survived,” Bender said at a news conference at the hospital, where the girl’s parents also spoke to reporters.

Not only did she survive, but she was in good condition Tuesday, Bender said, and was expected to leave the intensive care unit. Still, she has a long recovery ahead. Bender said it will be several weeks before she can bear any weight.

The girl’s parents agreed to let her perform the jump, but her father, Joe Wethington, now says the skydiving company shouldn’t have allowed it.

Father: ‘She Shouldn’t Have Been Allowed’ to Jump

“I don’t think she should have been allowed at 16 to go up there and perform that type of jump, no matter what I say or she says, she shouldn’t have been allowed,” Joe Wethington said at the news conference. “I find it very hard to believe that the rules and regulations in Oklahoma are that lax. I think there is a flaw there somewhere, and I don’t think it’s through the state of Oklahoma. I think it’s the company. I’m not sure.”

Oh Boy…. Dr Phil would have a lot to say about this!!! You are her FATHER! Now you say she shouldn’t have been allowed to jump and you can’t believe the rules are that lax! Again you are her FATHER! That  is your job, not the sky diving company…oh excuse me, I have Dr. Phil on the phone.

This was a REAL Pot- Luck Dinner…….

Image

There was a lot of pot and very little luck for a group of elementary-school teachers who showed up for an after-hours get-together in Benicia, Calif.

Police arrested Teresa Gilmete Badger on Friday and accused her of poisoning her colleagues after attending the event with food that contained marijuana.

According to authorities, employees of Matthew Turner Elementary School enjoyed an evening at a private residence on Nov. 21, where everyone was invited to bring a dish of food to share.

But clearly, sharing was not caring as, hours later, several attendees – and one juvenile who consumed the leftovers – started feeling sick with symptoms of being under the influence of a controlled substance. Eventually, two teachers were treated at the hospital.

After complaining of chest pains, one victim underwent blood tests and doctors discovered THC in her system, the main ingredient in marijuana.

Following an almost two-month-long police investigation, elementary-school teacher Badger, 47, was charged with suspicion of willingly mingling a poison or harmful substance with food, a felony, and is now being held at the Solanco County Jail on a $15,000 bail.

What was she thinking and Why did she do it? Maybe she pulled something out of the freezer and it was the wrong  casserole. WTF!

Hey… Maybe You’re My Sister?

Girls make fast friends at college, but Mikayla Stern-Ellis and Emily Nappi made fast family.

The Tulane University freshmen met last fall and didn’t think too much of it when each told the other she’d been conceived by an anonymous Colombian sperm donor.

But at the urging of Stern-Ellis’s parents, they did a little investigating – and discovered it was, in fact, the same sperm donor.

The girls had already been joking with friends about being related, but never thought it was true. “We’ve been telling people, ‘Oh, there’s a 25 percent chance we’re sisters,'” Nappi says.

The half-sisters now realize there might be a genetic reason why they love the same things, including acting – an interest that the donor also listed on his profile.

“For me, Tulane just felt right, and this is one of the many things that proves I made the right decision,” said Stern-Ellis.

What kind of a conversation was it?

Girl: “Hi I’m Mikayla, I have a Mom, but my dad was a sperm donor.”

2nd Girl: ” No Kidding, My dad was a sperm donor too! Maybe we’re sisters?”

Is that normal now a days that your dad is a sperm donor and addressed in conversation?

From Nanny to Pyscho!

From sippy cups to Scandal?

Though not as shocking as a typical episode of the hit ABC TV show, Connie Britton has revealed some fascinating news: Katie Lowes, who plays Quinn Perkins on the Kerry Washington drama, was once the nanny to her little boy before landing her big breakout role. 

“I was so upset when she got this little pilot,” the Nashville star joked. “I think it was pretty selfish on her part.” 

Britton, 46, also teased that while working for her wasn’t as nightmarish as some of the torture scenes that Lowes, 32, endures on Scandal this season, she admits, “I run a tight ship.” 

Britton said that life as a mom to her nearly 3-year-old son, Eyob, is “amazing,” and that he is “talking up a storm.” 

“Most of the time I feel like I don’t know what I’m doing but we’ll figure it out,” she explained, before adding: “He likes to read his books to me. I try to remain humble about my incredible skills that have obviously created genius.

Breaking Up…..

It’s curtains for The Wanted after their upcoming tour — the boy band just announced they’re breaking up as soon as it’s over.

The group just released a statement, saying, “This tour will be their last for a while as Tom, Max, Jay, Siva and Nathan have collectively decided to take time to pursue personal endeavours following the tour’s conclusion.”

Sources close to the group say Max and Nathan have already started solo projects … and we’re told Nathan decided he wanted out after collaborating with Ariana Grande on “Almost Is Never Enough.”

Oh well,you still have one direction….for now

Leaving after 21 Years

Image

 The days of her life suddenly became years. And after spending 21 of them as Sami Brady on the soap opera that made her famous, Alison Sweeney is getting ready to say goodbye.

Sweeney, 37, is leaving Days of Our Lives at the end of this season, quite a milestone for an actress who was just 16 when she made her debut on the NBC program.“I’m celebrating my 21st year … and I decided that it’s going to be my last year with the show,” she says. “I have worked so much, and my daughter just turned 5 and my son is 9, and I just want to be with them,” she adds. There’s no specific timetable for Sami’s sendoff, nor does Sweeney know what will happen to her character.
