Priscilla Presley Confirms She’s Looking After Lisa Marie’s Twins During Her Messy Divorce

Priscilla Presley is debunking rumors that her granddaughters were put into foster homes during their parents’ divorce. The actress, who was once married to Elvis Presley, took to social media to let her fans know that during the “confusion, commotion and concern” of her daughter Lisa Marie’s divorce, they shouldn’t worry about her twin daughters.

Her message came as rumors were beginning to swirl that Lisa Marie’s daughters Finley and Harper would be put in foster care. Lisa is divorcing her husband, guitarist Michael Lockwood, and part of their court documents said the twins had been put into “protective custody.”

But Priscilla calmed everyone down on Sunday by revealing the twins are staying with her. “The girls have not been in foster care and never will be,” she wrote on Facebook.

Lisa Marie made headlines in June when she filed for a divorce from Lockwood, and again this month when she filed court documents claiming he had been investigated by police for owning “hundreds of inappropriate photos of children.”

Lockwood hasn’t been charged with anything yet, but Beverly Hills police have confirmed that they investigated him and seized “items” from his home. They’ve passed the case to authorities in Tennessee, who say they’re still investigating.

Lisa Marie is seeking full custody of her two daughters, with “monitored visitation” for Lockwood. This singer has been married four times, including to Michael Jackson and actor Nick Cage.

Rod Stewart Under Fire For ‘Inappropriate Video On Social Media

Sir Rod Stewart is in some hot water after his wife shared a video online of the singer mimicking an ISIS execution in the desert.

Rod is with a bunch of people in Abu Dhabi desert when he can be seen making a cutting gesture across a person’s throat while the person kneels in front of him.

The video appeared online and seemed to be a full re-enactment of the ISIS beheading videos.

The full video was deleted, but that doesn’t mean people aren’t talking about it.

The widow of David Haines, who was murdered by Jihadi John in 2014, called this video “disgraceful” and “appalling.”

“[Rod’s] 72-years-old. That’s pretty brainless. I don’t understand how someone could do something like that. It’s disgusting,” Mrs. Haines said. “I think they should apologize to all the families. We’re not trying to forget, because we can never forget. But being constantly reminded, it’s not helping.”

David Haines, his wife Dragna

Stewart released a statement regarding the video, saying “From re-enacting the Beatles’ Abbey Road crossing to spontaneously playing out Game Of Thrones, we were simply larking about pre-show. Understandably, this has been misinterpreted and I send my deepest apologies to those who have been offended.”

The singer claims he was just re-enacting a scene from the show Game of Thrones, but he is still being labelled as “deeply stupid” and “clueless.”

The video has since been edited to take out the execution scene and has been re-posted online.

Do you think Rod Stewart crossed a line with his ISIS-style video, or are people just over-reacting to something harmless he did with friends? Let us know in the comments!

Mysterious Deaths Of Bahama’s Swimming Pigs

These pigs might not fly, but they certainly do swim.

The swimming pigs that live on Big Major Cay island in The Bahamas have been delighting tourists and locals for the past few years. The pink and brown porkies could often be seen paddling happily in the crystal blue waters or foraging for food in the forest.

But recently seven pigs from the famous colony have mysteriously died. Ben Guarino at The Washington Post reports that their bodies were found floating in the sea without any apparent injuries.

Humane Society inspector Ventoi Bethune investigated their mysterious deaths and explained to the National Geographic that their deaths were likely caused by fatal doses of alcohol and large quantities of sand.

As tourists flocked to the beaches to interact with the pigs, the animals have changed their foraging habits. Rather than searching for food in the forests, they’re relying more on the scraps that humans throw for them on the beach.

As they eat the food, they’re likely swallowing sand. Bethune also suggests that climate change could play a role. The recent dry spell in January  might have contributed to their natural source of water drying up.

“We found their natural source of water had dried up, so there wasn’t much fresh water on their island to drink,” Bethune says. “We believe it’s a combination of factors that lead to the death of the pigs.”

So, next time you visit the islands, look for the swimming porkers, but please: don’t feed the pigs!

If You Dream Of Working For The Royals, This Could Be Your Chance

We’ve all fantasized about living the high life as royalty: traveling around the world, wearing glamorous clothes and enjoying the best of what life has to offer.

If you have the skills to keep Princess Kate’s busy schedule on track, you may have a chance to travel the world as part of her entourage.

In a once in a lifetime opportunity, the royals are hiring at least one new personal secretary. Rebecca Deacon, who’s served as Will and Kate’s secretary since 2012, will be stepping down this summer.

BBC

In case you don’t feel like looking after Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s play dates, Deacon was also the personal secretary for Prince Harry.

That means if the prince and princess decide to hire their own minder, there could be another job available working for Harry and his new girlfriend Meghan Markle

E! Online

The job mainly involves handling the royals’ schedules, including all of their public appearances and charity work. You also have to give the royals briefings before all of their meetings. Deacon is probably leaving the job because it’s too hectic. The young secretary is getting married next month and could use some free time to adjust to family life.

Hello Magazine

If you’re hoping to land this job you should either live in the UK right now or start moving today, because you’ll need to already have the right to work there.

You’ll also need to go through a very tough vetting process and background check, including interviews with your family and past employers.

This could take as long as six weeks. On second thought, maybe it’s not worth all that work to carry the princess’s purse whenever she steps outside.

This Is What Happens To The Coins We Toss Into Fountains

Have you ever made a wish and tossed a coin into a fountain? Bet you didn’t take a moment to consider where exactly all that cold, hard cash goes after you drop it.

If you thought it stayed there for all of eternity, that’s cute. You’re wrong.

In fact, with millions of tourists frequenting some of the world’s most famous fountains, the coins would pile up pretty quickly if the cities didn’t do something about it.

Depending on the city and the fountain, collected coins either contribute to fountain upkeep, charity or public service. The change from fountains in New York City go towards the fountain upkeep.

The Trevi Fountain in Rome receives so many coins from tourists that it has to be cleaned every night. The BBC reports that workers collect up to $4,000 USD in loose change daily. In a year, the coins from the Trevi Fountain add up to about a million dollars!

So, the next time you toss a coin and make a wish, you can feel good about knowing that your small contribution adds up in a big way!

George Clooney Surprised One Of His Biggest Fans For Her Birthday

We all dream of our favorite celebrities stopping by to say hello on our birthdays, but in our hearts we know it’s never going to happen.

Well, for one lucky senior it really did. Pat Adams lived her lifelong dream on Sunday when she got a special visit from E.R. star George Clooney.

Adams’s care home, Sunrise of Sonning, runs a program called “Wish Upon a Star” that tries to grant the wishes of its elderly residents. Adams had wished to meet the movie star, and against all odds he payed her a visit this week.

The actor’s visit was timed perfectly: Adams is turning 87 next week, so this was an amazing early birthday surprise.

Clooney arrived unannounced at the nursing home and spent about 15 minutes chatting with Adams. He even brought her a lovely card and a bouquet of flowers.

Sunrise’s employees revealed that they had sent a few letters mentioning Adams’s wish to Clooney, but until he showed up at their door holding one of them they had no idea he would come.

Clooney and his wife Amal actually own a luxurious 17th century mansion in Sonning, so it was only a short trip for the Ocean’s 11 star.

According to Linda Jones, one of Sunrise’s workers, Adams mentions Clooney and how much she’d like to meet him “every day,” so this couldn’t have happened to a nicer fan.

She even offered Clooney some words of encouragement about the twins his wife is expecting.

“I think he’ll make a very good father,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “And I wish him joy. And I just hope it all goes well for him because he’s such a nice man.”

The Casting JonBenet Trailer Will Keep You Riveted To Your Screen

A trailer for new Netflix “documentary hybrid” has just been released based on the heartbreaking murder of JonBenét Ramsay.

You won’t be able to take your eyes off the screen. There is something so haunting, heartbreaking and completely unsettling about the way director Kitty Green tells the story.

Even the actors that audition for these title roles are scary good, you won’t be able to look away from the lineup of little JonBenéts…

Netflix

JonBenét Ramsey was an American child beauty pageant queen who was killed on Christmas Day night in 1996. She was just six years old when her father found her lifeless body in the basement of their Boulder, Colorado home.

For over two decades, the nation has followed the tragic case from trial to trial. Many suspected that her parents had staged the ransom note and the appearance of her body in order to cover up the crime.

Reuters

In 2003, trace DNA was discovered on JonBenét’s clothes that appear to belong to an unknown male. In 2009, the Boulder Police Department reopened the investigation.

There is still a lot of speculation about who could have murdered the little girl. Many people still believe that her parents are guilty.

What do you think – was it a family member, or maybe someone else? Let us know your theory in the comments below!

Remember Marilyn Monroe’s Iconic Dress? It Sold At Auction For A Record-Breaking Price

If you ask people to name Hollywood’s most glamorous  actress there’s no doubt Marilyn Monroe will top the list. More than 50 years after her tragic early death, a record-breaking sale of her most recognizable outfit proves she’s one of history’s most iconic celebrities.

The dress, which Monroe wore while singing “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy in 1962, sold at auction for $4.8 million dollars, the most anyone has ever paid for a dress – not bad, considering it originally cost just $12,000.

And it’s no wonder why: the stunning, designer dress made Monroe’s performance (and her last public appearance) a career-defining moment.

Monroe only wore the dress once, at a Democratic party fundraiser in New York’s Madison Square Garden.  It was just 10 days before the president’s birthday, and she serenaded him with her sultry, now-famous version of “Happy Birthday.”

The Today Show

The nude-colored dress was a created by designer Jean Louis, and featured 2,500 hand-stitched rhinestones.

Monroe wore nothing under the dress, and it was so tight that she had to be sewn into it, which explains the gasps from the audience when she revealed it.

The dress was bought by Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, who will show it off at their museums around the world.

In case you need any more proof of Monroe’s celebrity, this sale actually beat her own previous record.

The famous white dress she wore in The Seven Year Itch sold for $4.6 million.

Michael J Fox gave a surprising update on his health

Michael J Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease 26 years ago, since then he’s become the face of the debilitating illness. As his disease progressed Fox stopped working, and appears less and less in public, leading many of his fans to wonder how he’s doing.

Earlier this year, Fox sat down with AARP and gave the world an update on his condition, but it’s not what anyone would have expected.

“The truth is that on most days, there comes a point where I literally can’t stop laughing at my own symptoms,” he said.

He explained that he knows how his everyday struggles with tasks must look to others, and the pity they must feel for him. He finds it hilarious because on a personal level he feels great.

Fox was a darling of Hollywood, his good guy persona and youthful good-looks charmed everyone. He was in the middle of a career resurgence, starring in the prime time sitcom Spin City for which he won an Emmy, when he came out with his diagnosis in 1998.

Daily Mail

People living with Parkinson’s hailed his move as brave and groundbreaking. For Fox it was about shedding light on an illness most of us don’t understand.

He said one of the hardest parts of going public with his condition was “people’s perceptions of the condition.” Knowing that they were feeling sorry for him was hard for Fox.

“I’d assure them that ‘I’m doing great’ – because I was.”

While he rarely acts any more Fox has done a number of things to help stop Parkinson’s. He’s launched his own foundation to raise awareness and funds, and recently helped debut shoes with self-tying laces for people with Parkinson’s.

Kardashian Sisters Spark Outrage By Posing In Fur

For years clothing made from fur has been a hot topic in the fashion world, but for animal lovers the choice is clear: leave fur for the animals, not for our coats.

But a pair of A-list celebrities found themselves in hot water this week after stepping out in fur, and it seems like they just can’t learn their lesson, because this isn’t the first time their clothing choices got them in trouble.

Khloe Kardashian and her sister Kourtney were in Cleveland earlier this week, visiting Khloe’s boyfriend and basketball player Tristan Thompson, when their wardrobe choices sent animal lovers into a frenzy.

The pair showed off their fur coats on their Instagram accounts, and fans had a lot to say.

“Disgusting,” one person commented.

“It’s 2017. You’re wearing dozens of animals skinned alive?” added another. “Really cruel message to push. Be kind please.”

While the many of the sisters’ fans offered their support, most people were obviously disgusted by the outfits.

This is a familiar reaction for the pair, who were swarmed by animal rights protesters outside of a charity event last November because of how often they pose in fur.

Capital FM

So far neither of the sister have spoken publicly about the photos, but their family obviously has no second thoughts about their clothing choices, because even Kim Kardashian’s 3-year-old daughter North has been photographed in fur.

“I believe everyone has the choice of what they want,” Kim said during an appearance on the Today show last year. “It’s not illegal to buy fur.”

‘Alabama’ Member Reveals The Medical Condition He’s Been Hiding For Years

Country music fans got some bad news this week when one of the genre’s biggest stars revealed they were suffering from a potentially fatal disease.

Jeff cook, the guitarist and fiddle player for the award-winning country band Alabama, announced that for 4 years he has been keeping his Parkinson’s disease diagnosis a secret.

Parkinson’s is a disease that effects the body’s nervous system. It can be fatal and aggressive or very gradual. Other celebrities, like Michael J. Fox and Billy Graham, also have the disease.

Zimbio

Cook revealed his condition during an interview with The Tennessean, where he read a prepared statement to his fans.

“I’ve tried not to burden anyone with the details of my condition because I do not want the music to stop or the party to end, and that won’t change no matter what,” he said.

“Let me say, I’m not calling it quits but sometimes our bodies dictate what we have to do, and mine is telling me it’s time to take a break and heal.”

Cook will be leaving the band at the end of the month to focus on his health, but will make special appearances at a  Orange Beach tour date in May and another in June.

Amazon

While other musicians will fill in for Cook, the band says they’ll keep his microphone on stage while he’s gone.

“We could hire 10 people, but we can’t replace Jeff Cook in the group Alabama,” said Teddy Gentry, the band’s bass player.

Alabama has sold over 75 million records, recorded 43 number one hits and was inducted into the Country Hall of Fame.

This Could Be The Clearest Footage Of Bigfoot Ever Captured

Ever since a hairy, ape-like animal was caught on camera way back in 1967, hunters, photographers and wildlife experts have searched for proof of Bigfoot’s existence.

Now, decades later, a new video might finally cast some light on the mysterious creature, with what some are calling the first ever high definition video of the beast.

Taken by a family visiting Oregon’s Wildhorse Lake, the video shows an unidentified creature running through the background, and it’s sparking a heated debate over whether or not it’s a hoax.

While the video is very clear, the “Bigfoot” is still pretty far from the camera. You can see him running away from the lake, but even in the video one person says it’s a bear.

You can even hear what sounds like laughter in the background, but some people still insist the video is proof that Bigfoot walks among us.

I want to believe, but until someone gets a photograph of this creature up-close the debate will go on and on.

What do you think of this video? Do you believe that Bigfoot is out there somewhere, waiting to be found?

Burt Reynolds Makes Rare Public Appearance And People Are Worried About His Health

Burt Reynolds has had an incredible career in Hollywood.

From Deliverance, to Boogie Nights, to Smokey and the Bandit, to starring opposite Dolly Parton in The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas, Burt Reynolds gave us 60 years of entertainment.

Recently, Reynolds has been open about his health struggles, having to undergo quintuple bypass surgery in 2010. At 81 years of age, the actor rarely makes public appearances anymore. However, Reynolds was at the premiere of his movie “Dog Years” in New York.

To say he looks different is an understatement.

Country Rebel
People Magazine

Reynolds’ film is about an aging movie star who realizes his best days are behind him. The parallels weren’t unnoticed by Reynolds.

“I guess I’m doing all right. I think because it’s a hell of a turnout,” Reynolds said. “Great to see Mr. De Niro, who I love, and … you know, all the people that I know. It’s very sweet.”

Fans who saw the pictures are concerned about Burt Reynolds’ health with him looking so frail. He even needed a chair on the red carpet so he could sit while answering questions.

But hey, if I can be out on a red carpet at age 81 then I’ll consider that a win!

Tom Hardy Breaks Into A Hollywood-Style Chase After Thieves Crash Into A Car

Witnesses say that Hollywood A-lister Tom Hardy is just as fierce in person as he is on screen.

“It was mental – like he’d switched to superhero mode in an action movie,” said Arun Pullen, a 22-year-old resident of Richmond, London who saw Hardy go barreling down the street.  

Hardey is no stranger to challenges and, apparently, he’s not one to back down from confrontation either.

Known for taking on almost threatening roles, Hardy has built his career on physically intense characters:

In 2011, Hardy played MMA fighter, Tommy Conlon, in Warrior.

In 2012, He was Bane in the Dark Knight Rises…

He was Mad Max in 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road

But earlier this week, he was the bane of a couple of young thieves’ existence…

Find out what Tom did when he spotted two thieves steal a moped and crash into a Mercedes – turn to the next page!

Two teenagers on a stolen moped crashed into a Mercedes in Richmond, south-west London earlier this week.  

They would have gotten away with it too, if Tom Hardy hadn’t been around.

“He went off like a shot in pursuit and looked furious,” said Pullen. “… the route was like an assault course.”

Hardy chased one of the thieves down the street, through back gardens and over fences.

He finally apprehended the thief and made a citizen’s arrest.

“Tom Hardy’s clearly not a man you’d mess with. I think he even checked the kid’s ID before cops took over,” said Pullen.

The BBC reports that a Metropolitan Police spokesperson confirmed that Hardy did detain one of the offenders. The 39-year-old actor’s spokes person declined to comment.

“The Walking Dead” Star Josh McDermitt Quits Social Media After “Disturbing” Death Threats

As if fighting off zombies wasn’t hard enough, one of the stars of AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead has been dealing with swarms of the show’s hostile fans, but this isn’t just some playful online teasing.

Josh McDermitt, who plays Eugene on the show, abruptly shut down his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts following a number of bizarre online threats.

Fans are apparently upset because (spoiler alert) McDermitt’s character has been up to no good this season. But some of the actor’s followers don’t seem to realize the difference between fantasy and reality.

When McDermitt’s character betrayed the rest of the cast this season, the actor was swamped with angry messages and threats against his life. McDermitt also says he’s sick of the way his co-star Alanna Masterson is body-shamed by the show’s fans.

“It’s very frustrating, the Internet, because people feel they have a platform to just say whatever the hell they want and it can be anonymous because you can say the most racist, vile, stupid crap and hide behind [their screen name],” he told The Huffington Post.

In a Facebook Live video posted before he deleted his accounts, McDermitt warned fans that “when you start saying ‘I hope you die,’ I don’t know if you’re talking about Josh or Eugene.”

Warning: this video contains strong language.

It’s easy to tell from the number of popular baby names the show has spawned that The Walking Dead is something fans takes very seriously, but there’s no excuse for harassing an actor because of who they play on TV.

Hopefully McDermitt’s decision to quit the internet will send a message to hateful trolls that this behavior isn’t tolerated anymore.

The Walking Dead‘s 8th season starts later this year, and hopefully fans will be more respectful by then.

The Reason Why Prince William Refuses To Wear A Wedding Ring

You may not have noticed it at all, but some eagle-eyed royal watchers have spotted something a little strange about Prince William and Kate Middleton that has many people questioning their marriage.

Regularly spotted together, William and Kate are often photographed standing or sitting side by side. By all means, they look like a happily married couple, but there is something that just doesn’t add up.

PA-PRESS ASSOCIATION

Social media users noticed a trend in several photos of the couple – the Duchess of Cambridge proudly wears here huge engagement ring and subtle wedding band, yet the Duke’s wedding ring is missing.

In 2011, after the famous royal couple got married, a spokesperson from the palace explained why the Prince decided to go ringless.

Basically, it’s personal preference, they say, “It was something that the couple discussed but Prince William isn’t one for jewelry.”

In fact, it’s not an uncommon decision among the Royal men. In Britain, men didn’t start wearing wedding bands until World War II, however the men of the royal family never really adopted the tradition.

Besides Prince Charles, who wears his next to his signet ring, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duke of Cambridge are sticking with the British upper class tradition of not wearing a ring at all.

‘Little People, Big World’ Shares A Big Family Announcement

Little People, Big World took the nation by storm when their show aired.

Viewers turned in to watch and learn about the daily lives of people with dwarfism, and we learned it’s more or less the same as ours! Sure, there are some adjustments, but the Roloff family showed us how their family lives day to day.

There was Matt Roloff, the father and jokester. Amy Roloff, the mom and level-headed voice of reason. The twins, Jeremy and Zach Roloff, who always drew attention because of their differences (Jeremy is average size, Zach is a little person.) Molly Roloff, the only girl sibling who loved soccer. And finally, Jacob Roloff, the youngest and quietest of them all.

The Roloff family had their struggles, with Amy and Matt ending their marriage, but there was never anything more important than being there for each other.

Zach and Jeremy both got married, and now the Roloffs have another big announcement.

US Weekly

Zach and his wife, Tori, have welcomed a baby boy to their new family!

“Baby and mother are doing great,” said Zach and Tori. “Jackson has already mastered holding daddy’s fingers and snuggling with mom! He is adorable and Tori and I are loving being parents.”

The couple have been married since 2015, and this is the first grandchild for Amy and Matt.

Congratulations to Zach, Tori, and the entire Roloff family on their new addition!

Maine Seeks To Ban Food Stamps For These Popular Items

The Maine Department of Health and Human Services has made a motion that would put restrictions on what families who use food stamps can buy.

Mary Mayhew, the Maine DHHS Commissioner, submitted a letter to the federal government asking to prohibit welfare recipients from purchasing sugary soft drinks and candy products.

“Numerous studies confirm that as much as two-thirds of Maine’s adults population is overweight or obese,” Mayhew wrote. “This impacts the quality of life for Maine residents, and the chronic health conditions associated with obesity are costly to Maine taxpayers.”

More than 180,000 Maine residents are enrolled in SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program,) giving Maine one of the highest percentages of state population receiving food stamps.

Mayhew’s argument that allowing food stamps to purchase ‘junk food’ has already been turned down once in 2015. Administration at the time never granted the ruling out of fear it would result in recipients losing their assistance.

Democratic state Rep. Drew Gattine stated, “There’s no evidence that these types of efforts, this type of ban, on purchasing certain types of foods has any impact on the way that people eat.”

Do you agree with Mary Mayhew’s request to restrict SNAP members from purchasing sugary drinks and candy products? Let us know!
