Drama Erupts on the Beach When Asiah Collins Gets Dragged Into Alycia Bella and Crystal Smith’s Beef OnThe Platinum LifeThe women leave the drama behind and jet off for a Cancún getaway!

A star of The Big Bang Theory has some very big news to share:
About a year after we first wondered whether Kaley Cuoco would get married to boyfriend Karl Cook, the beautiful actress has gone ahead and answered our question.
Well, she answered his question, to be accurate.
And that question, of course, was whether she wanted to be his bride.
In an emotional video Cook actually shared to Instagram, Cuoco breaks down in tears upon hearing the words she wanted Cook to say, barely able to even utter a response.
"We're engaged!" Cuoco tells the camera at one point, to which Karl replies:
"You still haven't said yes yet."
Yes! I say yes! I say yes!" she says back.
Watch the waterworks flow and the proposal be accepted below:
"Who knew my prior post was oracular," wrote Cook as a caption to the footage, adding:
"Well after nearly two years I finally got up the courage to ask her to marry me.
"This is the best night of my life and I think the video shows it is the best night for kaley as well.....of she said yes!!!!!"
In September of 2015, Cuoco split from husband Ryan Sweeting after less than two years of marriage.
Based on the way she acted afterward (getting a tattoo of Sweeting's name removed, however, it seemed as if Ryan dared to cheat on Kaley.
She later told Cosmopolitan that the divorced "[changed] the way I look at marriage, and that makes me sad."
Thankfully, though, she has now found a man that makes her happy.
Cuoco and Cook first sparked romance rumors in March of 2016.
A month later, Cuoco shared a cozy picture of her with her boyfriend on Instagram, writing: "That's what happy looks like."
The two share a love of horses in particular and animals in general.
"They seem to be in a good spot right now. She is always traveling with him. It's not as much her schedule but more so his," an insider previously told E! New, concluding:
"She is super smitten."
And we're super smitten for her!
We wish Cuoco and Cook the very best of luck in their life together!

Unfortunately what started as a personal story quickly bordered on victim-blaming as the Baywatch star made it clear she knew better than to be alone with Harvey Weinstein -- and heavily implied all these other women did too!
She said of being a victim when she was young:
"You somehow think that you were to blame. But I learned to never put myself in those positions again. And when I came to Hollywood, of course I would have had a lot of offers to do private auditions, things that made absolutely no sense, just common sense. Don't go into a hotel room alone. If someone answers the door in a bathrobe, you know, leave. These things are common sense."
She goes on to say "Hollywood is seductive" but that she didn't want to go about getting famous that way.
Um... Sorry, but is she implying some of these women who were assaulted did? She certainly seems to say they should have known better as she says she was able to not get into dangerous situations with Harvey or others:
"I think it was common knowledge, that certain producers and certain people in Hollywood are people to avoid, privately. You know what you're getting into if you go to a hotel room alone."
"You know what you're getting into"?
Eesh. Watch Pam's interview (below) and decide for yourself if she's sending the wrong message!

The conventional wisdom in television used to be that you don’t want to get too political or you’d alienate half your audience. Even last year when Arrow decided to get political and do a topical episode on mass shootings and gun control, the show explicitly refused to make any sort of statement towards one side or the other. Which is fine, but Green Arrow’s most defining trait as a comic book character is his outspoken left-wing political orientation. Still, even a show about the most explicitly political character in comics shies away from taking a political stance for fear of alienating its audience.
This “stand in the middle and don’t get too political” strategy has failed to pay off for Jimmy Fallon, as since the election of Donald Trump, Fallon has fallen behind Stephen Colbert in viewership, placing him second place in the late night ratings war, and just barely ahead of third-place host Jimmy Kimmel.
Critics of President Trump have been quick to attribute this to Fallon’s non-confrontational approach to having Trump on his show during the election, contrasted by Colbert’s broadside assault on conservatives, something he was famous for already coming from his long runs as a correspondent on The Daily Show and host of The Colbert Report. But is there any truth to the idea that it’s politics rather than personality that’s pushing ratings in late night?
Well, yeah, there is, and it’s the correlation with cable news ratings we’ve seen in the Trump era, as MSNBC is ascendant with CNN and Fox News declining, on the back of late night’s new queen, the increasingly detached from reality Rachel Maddow. Since the election, Dr. Maddow’s program has veered further from the solid, evidence-based reporting she provided in her Air America days and more into the neoliberal conspiracy theory territory trod by former British MP Louise Mensch and her ilk. Maddow’s turn to being the center-left’s version of Glenn Beck has rewarded her with the title of top rated cable news show, beating arch-conservative blowhard Sean Hannity in demographic viewership. Fox News still has the highest viewership numbers, but center-left MSNBC is the only cable news network to have a growing instead of shrinking audience.
One interesting note is that Fallon still holds an edge, albeit a much-decreased edge, in demographic viewership over Colbert, where Colbert actually decreased in viewership over last year. This means all of Colbert’s growth in the past year has been from viewers over the age of 50, as the younger viewers who left Fallon’s audience, nearly 300,000 of them, dropped out of watching late night talk shows altogether.
What this means is that, surprise, surprise, having a historically unpopular president means that a lot of people like it when you call him an asshole. Trump’s approval rating is lower than Gerald Ford’s approval rating, and Gerald Ford wasn’t even elected. Under normal circumstances, being apolitical is the safest bet, but in the current climate, Trump has managed to be so unpopular that the conventional wisdom no longer applies.
Remember that time when, for 11 glorious minutes, Donald Trump didn’t have a Twitter account? And then all the Pepe avatars went nuts and wanted the guy who did it arrested for treason? Well, aside from all the other reasons it’s insane to think not letting a guy use Twitter is treason, it turns out the employee in question isn’t even American.
Said employee, a contractor who was leaving Twitter, is named Bahtiyar Duysak, and I’m sure Hannity is already calling him a terrorist or something equally ridiculous, but TechCrunch caught up with him in Germany and got an interview that shed some light on what happened on Duysak’s last day working for Twitter’s Trust and Safety department and why it happened.
His last day at Twitter was mostly uneventful, he says. There were many goodbyes, and he worked up until the last hour before his computer access was to be shut off. Near the end of his shift, the fateful alert came in.
This is where Trump’s behavior intersects with Duysak’s work life. Someone reported Trump’s account on Duysak’s last day; as a final, throwaway gesture, he put the wheels in motion to deactivate it. Then he closed his computer and left the building.
Trump broke the rules, so he, as part of his job description and in line with Twitter’s rules, deactivated Trump’s account. The thing is, he didn’t know he actually could deactivate Trump’s account. Because for all of the people constantly calling for Trump to be banned from Twitter, Twitter’s internal policies basically protect Trump from ever losing access to the platform.
Duysak describes the event as a “mistake.” Specifically, he told us, he never thought the account would actually get deactivated.
In fact, it appeared that Trump’s account was essentially protected from being deactivated over Terms of Service violations. In June, Twitter explained why: Some tweets that seemingly violate its terms of service are nevertheless “newsworthy” and therefore in the public interest to keep up.
I’m personally on Twitter’s side here, you can’t ban the President of the United States from your platform even if he is an asshole. There’s a public interest in letting the president address the public, regardless of the content of his message. We gave him the unilateral authority to initiate a nuclear first strike against anyone he wants, so why the hell are we so worried about him having a Twitter account?
Now, they aren’t legally obligated to allow the president to have a Twitter account, either. And for the people who think Duysak broke some kind of law, he didn’t. He didn’t do anything outside the scope of his duties at Twitter. He did the job he was given in the way he was told to do it, and not agreeing with the outcome doesn’t make it illegal.
“I didn’t hack anyone. I didn’t do anything that I was not authorized to do,” he told us when we met in Germany. “I didn’t go to any site I was not supposed to go to. I didn’t break any rules.”
I do think it takes some huge balls to make a statement that the president should have to play by the same rules as everyone else. Twitter’s recent crackdown on “bad behavior” has been rather silly and over-reaching, mainly silencing anyone who’s a little too mean to anyone with a checkmark. Basically, they don’t want someone like Leslie Jones talking about some nobody Breitbart editor harassing her on their platform again more than they care about “toxicity”.
Conor McGregor does what the fook he wants. Unless he wants to punch an Irish cartel member in the face. Then, he probably should not do what the fook he wants.
A rumor came out earlier this week that McGregor got into a bar fight in Ireland, where he allegedly punched multiple people. One of those men may have been an associate of a senior Kinahan cartel member. The Kinahan cartel, based out of Dublin, have ties to “Colombian and Mexican Cartels as well as the Russian Mafia.” The cartel are reportedly seeking $900K from McGregor, or they’re going to shoot him.
The news started out as just a rumor on Reddit, but has picked up a lot of steam in recent days. Irish crime reporter Paul Williams weighed in on McGregor’s options (via Balls.ie):
Conor McGregor is in a very dangerous place at the moment. He has come into conflict through probably no fault of his own, with a group of very, very dangerous people who are tied up with the Kinahans. These people do not care who Conor McGregor is, what he stands for, how powerful he is, they will drag him down into the cesspit.
I would say, in the next 48 hours, if he still in the country – and I understand that he may have left the country – but if he is still in the country, I understand from my sources that the Garda will be approaching him to give him a GIM form, which is a Garda Information Message, to tell him that there may be threats to his safety. This is a huge story, and imagine what it would do to our reputation if this national sporting icon is attacked by a bunch of gangsters.
McGregor might be an icon in Ireland, but based on every gangster flick I’ve ever seen, that shit doesn’t matter. Even if the only truthful part of this story is that McGregor got into a bar fight, that’s still a terrible look for a guy of McGregor’s status.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that he’s out of control. He’s made millions of dollars being out of control.
The magnitude of this threat either hasn’t hit McGregor, isn’t real to begin with, or he truly doesn’t give a fook.

That’s McGregor leaving an Irish courthouse, where he had to pay a fine for speeding. He’s not exactly making his whereabouts a secret.
All of this is just another ploy by McGregor so he doesn’t have to defend his lightweight title.
Russell Simmons didn’t do anything wrong despite being accused of sexual assault. But he’s stepping down from multiple companies anyway. But just know. He didn’t do anything wrong.
Simmons was accused of sexual assault by Jenny Lumet, who alleges that Simmons forced her to have sex with him back in 1991. This comes after he was also accused of sexual assault by Keri Claussen Khalighi, who said Simmons raped her when she was 17 while Brett Ratner watched.
Here’s what Simmons had to say about the accusations and such:
“While I have never been violent, I have been thoughtless and insensitive in some of my relationships over many decades and I sincerely and humbly apologize.”
Yeah, I’ve been thoughtless and insensitive in my past relationships as well. Doesn’t mean I’ve forced myself on top of women. I’ve just acted like I care about their problems while continuing to play my video games. Sorry for doing that, women.
Simmons isn’t actually owning up to anything in this statement, nor is he apologizing for what he’s been accused of.
Him stepping down is all the proof we need that he’s guilty of these crimes.
Simmons runs like 500 different companies. He’s involved in music, movies, television, clothing, credit cards, and God knows what else. Here’s what he had to say about stepping down:
“The companies will now be run by a new and diverse generation of extraordinary executives who are moving the culture and consciousness forward,” said Simmons, adding, “As for me, I will step aside and commit myself to continuing my personal growth, spiritual learning, and, above all, to listening.”
Maybe you should have listened to his victims when they said, “No, I don’t want to have sex with you.” I guess that’s what Simmons is really guilty of. He didn’t rape anyone. He just failed to listen to them.

Jim Nabors, best known for having starred as Gomer Pyle on The Andy Griffith Show and then on his own spinoff, died at his home in Hawaii on Thursday morning.
He was 87 years old.
Hawaii News Now has confirmed this sad piece of news.
Nabors was born in Alabama and actually recorded over two dozen albums, having established a loyal music following as a result of his deep, operative voice.
It often took people by surprise, considering the Southern accent he used on television, along with what became his quasi catchphrase of Gawwwleee.
For a number of years, Nabors also sang “Back Home Again in Indiana” for the opening ceremonies for the Indianapolis 500.
In the early 1960s, the artist was a regular performer at The Horn – a cabaret theater on Wilshire Boulevard – when he was spotted by Andy Griffith.
The actor believed Nabors would be ideal to portray a new character on his CBS sitcom; a dim-witted mechanic named Gomer Pyle.
Gomer worked at Wally’s filling station in Mayberry and was a cousin of George Lindsey’s Goober.
Nabors was signed for just one Season 3 episode, which aired in December of 1962.
But the character and the actor proved to be so popular that Nabors ended up appearing in a total of 23 installments.
His aforementioned signature saying sprang from a discussion in which Gomer extolled the sophistication of Don Knotts’ Barney Fife:
“Gawwwleee! He’s even been out with some nurses,” he said.
On the Season 4 finale, the character enlisted in the Marines, paving the way for Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., which premiere in September of 1964 and ran for a total of five seasons before concluding in 1969.
The actor would end up reprising the role nearly 20 years later, in the 1986 TV-movie Return to Mayberry.
Nabors retired from acting near the peak of his popularity.
“It got down to what you think you want to be: an actor or an entertainer. I want to entertain,” Nabors said in 1969, when he decided to hang up Pyle’s fatigues and host a variety show.
“I don’t think I’m much of an actor. The only part I ever played was Gomer. I’m the most surprised person around that I’m successful anyway.”
Nabors last sang at the Indy500 in 2015.
May he rest in peace.
Oh Shay, why must you torment us so? If you are going to have the cajonies to shower outside the least you can do for your fans is to post it on the internet as well.
Director Ridley Scott is talking about the unprecedented replacement in a new interview
Assuredly, there is a memory almost everyone can return to that involves a motor vehicle crash. Either we misjudged a curve, didn’t pay attention to how fast we were travelling, or neglected to maintain our car. Then, there are those times when poor decisions make the spot light. Some of us still think it’s ok to drive while intoxicated.
Some don’t relish a nap in their vehicle so they chance driving sleepy and others purposely test the limits of their car with burnouts, drag racing, and deathly speeds. With that said, celebrities are not immune to the effects of these chance happenings and bad choices. Here are few that could write a book on the matter.
As the drummer for one of the most famous bands of the 70’s, The Who, Keith Moon was credited with some of the best and worst achievements of all time. He was known as the third best drummer in the world and also placed 11th as one of the Druggiest Rock Stars of All Time.
Born in London, England, he was credited with tiles such as The Kids Are Alright and Monterey Pop. However, in 1970, while heavily intoxicated, Keith managed to kill his bodyguard after failing to notice the man was caught under his vehicle. He was subsequently dragged down the road to his death.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio on August 14, 1966, Berry was a fiery addition to her family. One that would soon grow into one of the greatest American actresses of all time. Best known for her additions to the Marvel world, her character, Storm, has graced the screen in X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men 2, and X-Men: Days of Future Past. She is also well known for her contribution to the movie Cloud Atlas.
Be that as it may, in 2000, Halle was fined for leaving the scene of an accident. It was reported that in the process of running a red light, she demolished an oncoming car. Her reason for leaving? Well, she simply didn’t remember due to the head injuries she incurred from the accident. Understandably, the insurance bills accrued were added, as well, and this mistake turned out to be a costly one in more than one way.
Rodman is one of the most interesting contributions made by Trenton, New Jersey to the world of basketball. He has done everything from dunking on the best in the business to gracing the silver screen. Credited with being one of the weirdest and most outspoken celebrities to date, Rodman is continuing to entertain as he now travels through his mid 50’s.
Be that as it may, even the agility of the most athletic among us can’t prevent the surprises of life. In 2010, Rodman experienced one such surprise as his tire unexpectedly blew out and caused his vehicle to flip three times. It was the grace of God that he walked away, and he did so with only minor injuries.
Car accidents aren’t for a selected few in the world. Next time you get behind the wheel of a car, remember even Storm can’t prevent those clouds of danger.
Kim Kardashian is back at it again.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has a reputation for hitting up social media with racy snaps to get her fans talking about how drop dead gorgeous she is.
The 37-year-old’s latest attempt to break the internet came in the form of her painted from head-to-toe in glitter and posing in front of her mirror, and there was no clothing in sight!
Have a look for yourself.
It’s a signature Kim Kardashian naked selfie. It has her in front of a mirror, showing off a whole lot of skin.
The only surprising thing about it was that her nipples are all covered up a thin line.
Maybe Kris Jenner had a say in what was shown in the snap and wanted her to free her nipples on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
The snap was taken behind the scenes of a photo shoot she was doing for her KKW cosmetics line. Yes, like most of her family members, Kim is in the cosmetics business, and she makes a whole lot of money from it.
Kardashian also shared another picture of the shoot, and it looked a whole lot more professional than the one that found her in front of a mirror showing everything off.
Doesn’t she look as confident as ever? It’s obvious Kim is comfortable in her skin, and that’s part of the reason why she shows off her body on the internet every so often.
However, we have to admit that this latest naked selfie from the star is somewhat subdued in comparison to her past efforts.
Case in point:
The above picture was shared in 2016 to a mixed reaction from her fans, but it still got her in the headlines and the snap was likely one of the most-viewed on the internet for the year, so it was likely a success to Kris Jenner.
At the time, it was speculated that Kim wanted to show off her post-baby body to show that she was working out like crazy to maintain her physique.
Kim is gearing up to welcome her third child into the world via surrogacy, so maybe she decided to make her latest nude selfie a classier affair. We do not want to be Kim when she has to explain to her kids as grown-ups why the internet is so obsessed with pictures of their mother naked.
Will that be a conversation filmed in front of the reality TV cameras? Considering the family have signed a lucrative new deal with E!, they are likely sticking around for the duration.
Who would have thought they would still be relevant after all these years in the spotlight? It’s crazy, and their popularity does not seem to be waning.
What do you think about this picture?
Sound off below!
Someone doesn’t like making money. Daisy Ridley talked to Rolling Stone about the Star Wars movies. During her interview, she dropped a semi-bombshell that she doesn’t plan to stick around in a galaxy far, far away (is that how it goes?).
As far as Ridley is concerned, the future of Rey is pretty much set. She doesn’t want to play the character after the next movie. “No,” she says flatly. “For me, I didn’t really know what I was signing on to. I hadn’t read the script, but from what I could tell, it was really nice people involved, so I was just like, ‘Awesome.’ Now I think I am even luckier than I knew then, to be part of something that feels so like coming home now.”
…I am really, really excited to do the third thing and round it out, because ultimately, what I was signing on to was three films. So in my head, it’s three films. I think it will feel like the right time to round it out.”
I’ll chalk this up to her not knowing how Hollywood works. The whole point is to get into superhero universes, franchises, syndication if you’re on TV and have constant streams of income coming in.
You know how hard it is as an actress to get parts? You won the lottery and now you want out. I can’t. Seriously. There’s no “art” in Hollywood. Only cash and cocaine.
If Daisy doesn’t want the plum role of Rey, there’s a thousand other actresses who’ll gladly take it. AND they’ll suck a dick to do it. Hold on. *takes call from legal department*
Oh…guess that’s not allowed anymore. Well…FUUUUUCK!
