Local NBC Affiliate In Connecticut Will NOT Air Megyn Kelly’s Interview With Alex Jones — GOOD!

Good for NBC's Connecticut affiliate here.

The local television station owned by NBC that covers the area including Newtown, Connecticut, will NOT be broadcasting Megyn Kelly's highly controversial interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

Related: Alex Jones Pre-Leaks His Interview With Megyn Kelly!

In an internal memo at the company that was obtained by the Associated Press on Friday, station executives at WVIT NBC Connecticut made the decision to not air the interview after hearing from employees, viewers, and families that were so horribly affected by the awful tragedy that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School there in 2012.

Jones has said repeatedly on the record that the killing of those 26 people -- including many small children -- was a hoax. Kelly has drawn a ton of criticism for even interviewing him, but now at least it seems one station has found a solution.

Good!

Related: Sandy Hook Moms Urging Megyn To Do The Right Thing

All in all, with Kelly's ratings in the toilet and this controversy rung squarely around her neck, it really hasn't been a great start to her career at NBC.

Of course, it pales in comparison to the pain Jones' conspiracy theories have brought to Sandy Hook families.

Hopefully more NBC affiliates across the country take the lead from this one and adjust their programming accordingly.

Donald Trump Jr. Comes For Ken Jennings After The Jeopardy Champ Makes Brutal Barron Trump Joke!

We'll take "Awkward Twitter Spars" for $500, Alex.

Ken Jennings is famous for holding the record for the longest winning streak on Jeopardy! -- but some are calling the game show vet a big loser after he made a brutal joke about Barron Trump.

Related: Barron Is D.C. Bound!

On Wednesday, Jennings tweeted a joke about Donald Trump's youngest son, poking fun at reports that the 11-year-old thought Kathy Griffin's photo shoot with his dad's decapitated head was the real deal.

He shared:

Yeesh.

After some criticized Jennings for making a savage joke about a child fearing the death of his father, the former contestant redirected attention to the president, quipping:


But by then, it was too late. Conservatives came for Jennings on social media -- including Barron's big bro Donald Trump Jr., who publically condemned Jennings' jab, writing:

And soon, more conservatives fueled the already flaming dumpster fire.

Right-wing blogger Ginger McQueen pointed out Jennings writes children's books for Simon & Schuster, and encouraged Barron-defenders to threaten a boycott to the publishing house -- which Donny Jr. couldn't help but jump at as well:


But in the end, it was Jennings who got the last bitter laugh. The Jeopardy champ wrote a retort to DJ, referencing his widely-criticized affinity for big game hunting:

So, who won this round? Everyone who doesn't have a Twitter...

Sinkhole Appears RIGHT In Front Of Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago Estate & Twitter Can’t Handle The Hellish Metaphor!

Mar-a-Lago: home to the most beautiful chocolate cakes you’ve ever seen… and the ugliest, stinkiest sinkholes!

Hell opened up in front of Donald Trump‘s Palm Beach, Florida estate over the weekend in the form of a 4′ x 4’ sinkhole in the road right by the side entrance.

Video: Melania Totally Denies A Donald’s Hand Grab!

Town officials issued a traffic alert on Monday morning, which read:

“A 4′ x 4′ sinkhole has formed on Southern Boulevard directly in front of Mar-a-Lago. It appears to be in the vicinity of the newly installed water main. West Palm Beach Utilities distribution crews have secured the area and will most likely need to do some exploratory excavation today.”

Let’s hope this really is from a “newly installed water main” and not the Donald opening a literal gate to hell. (Though in his defense, Steve Bannon could probably use a trip home by now.)

Twitter also failed to see the sinkhole as a standard utility problem, and instead saw a giant, perhaps too-on-the-nose metaphor:

Other Twitics couldn’t help but be alarmed that the sinkhole came right after Trump was pictured touching a mysterious glowing orb on his trip to Saudi Arabia:

Yikes!

Better be on the lookout for swarms of locusts coming out of Trump Tower.

Wait — Is Melania Trump The One Who Wants Sean Spicer Fired?!

There's a new report out today that notes how it's Melania Trump, supposedly more than anybody, who is concerned with Press Secretary Sean Spicer's performance in defense of her husband Donald Trump.

The entire report, published in POLITICO, is kind of a fluff piece that seeks to make Melania look like a big player in the political world as an up-and-coming first lady, but the Spicer allegations stand out: it appears she's the one who is "really concerned" about Spicey not doing his job very well.

Related: It's Starting To Look Bad For Jared Kushner

An "outside adviser" to Melania and the President told the outlet:

"[Melania] was really concerned that Spicer was not doing a good job, that they were not proactive in defending the president."

Apparently, it goes deeper than that, too -- Melania believes that all the leaks coming from the White House are people thinking only of their own self-interest, and not of the country, or The Donald.

The same adviser:

"The leaks bother her. She believes a lot of people are more interested in serving themselves than him."

Gee, there are only so many people that could be about!

Take two and two together and what do you have??

You've got a First Lady that is apparently highly critical of a guy The Donald has, for no apparent reason and against all common sense, decided to keep around way past the point of things getting totally ridiculous.

Makes you think...

Katy Perry Faces Backlash After Comparing Herself To A Hindu Goddess — Uh Oh!

People are NOT happy with Katy Perry.

On Wednesday, the Chained To The Rhythm singer took to Instagram to share an image (above) of Hindu goddess Kali Ma alongside the caption, "current mood." While over 250K fans liked the post, countless others have since SLAMMED the pop star for being "offensive" and disrespectful to the Hindu faith.

Related: Katy Follows Bill O'Reilly On Twitter

One follower noted:

"This is a shameful and offensive act. You can't compare yourself with The Great Goddess KALI MAA."

Sadly, the backlash didn't stop there as another critic weighed in:

"Please do not compare yourself with God !! You can have any kind of mood what you want but you must respect other religion also!!"

Fair point. Still, Katy's loyal KatyCats have since flocked to the post in her defense. One fan commented:

"She just described her mood but didn't insulted the religion there is no wrong in it"

Yeah, but cultural appropriation is still a thing. Nonetheless, a different follower added:

"There is a Kali in every women! Maybe a bit more in Katy. Well Done."

In the past, the Roar artist has made a point to clarify that she doesn't identify with one religion in particular. Back in 2013, the A-lister told Marie Claire:

"I'm not Buddhist, I'm not Hindu, I'm not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God. I pray all the time - for self-control, for humility. There's a lot of gratitude in it."

Although, to be fair, the 32-year-old DID marry Russell Brand in a lavish Hindu ceremony in India back in 2010 -- so it's not like she doesn't know anything about Hinduism. What do YOU think?? Was Katy being offensive??

SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!

Justin Bieber Lashes Out At Fan Requesting Photo: ‘Look At You, You Make Me Sick’

The fallout from this isn't going to be good...

Justin Bieber is in Melbourne right now, and played a show Friday night in the Australian city, but he's causing worldwide news controversy with something else he did Down Under just before the show.

Related: Justin *Was* Adorable As A Kid!

While out and about in Melbourne, Bieber was approached at one point by fans -- including a 20-year-old girl named Sabah Helal, who requested a photo with Justin since she was a huge fan of the pop star.

Justin's response to the request? Well, it ain't good (below):

"You're invading my privacy, I don't want a photo. Look at you, you make me sick."

YIKES.

Other fans documented and immediately shared the moment on social media, like in this instance (below):

Hmm...

Related: Adele Gets Attacked By A Mosquito Mid-Concert!

We'll see how this ends up playing out -- and whether Justin reacts publicly to it -- but for now, even the fan's mother, Houda Bennaoui, is talking.

She told reporters:

"My daughter was bawling her eyes out. She was dying to meet him and then he humiliated her."

Uh-oh.

And concert-goers were un-impressed with Justin's performance later last night, too, with Houda adding in:

"His hands were in his pockets for the first five songs and it seemed like he didn't want to be there. After years of supporting him, my daughter will never see him again in concert."

Are you having another bad day down under, Justin???

Sean Spicer Has Completely Lost Control, Is Now Wildly Searching For Source Of Leaks To Media

Where is Melissa McCarthy when you need her??

Sean Spicer is completely losing control of the White House, and an incredible new report in POLITICO details exactly how bad Sean's been at his communications job of late.

Related: Trump's Approval Ratings Hit Record Low! Sad!

According to the political news outlet, Spicer held an "emergency" meeting with the entire White House communications staff last week -- only the meeting wasn't about anything.

Instead, it was a ruse to get every single staffer in a room, take their government-issued and personal cell phones, and look through all the devices to try to figure out who is leaking so much administration info to the press.

He admonished the group of staffers about leaks, after which that meeting immediately leaked out to POLITICO, and now we're reporting on it!

LOLz!!

Spicey has lost control of his team!!!

Related: Bernie Sanders 1, Donald Trump 0

Here's how it all went down, according to the news outlet's leaked source info:

"Upon entering Spicer's office for what one person briefed on the gathering described as 'an emergency meeting,' staffers were told to dump their phones on a table for a 'phone check,' to prove they had nothing to hide. Spicer, who consulted with White House counsel Don McGahn before calling the meeting, was accompanied by White House lawyers in the room, according to multiple sources. There, he explicitly warned staffers that using texting apps like Confide — an encrypted and screenshot-protected messaging app that automatically deletes texts after they are sent — and Signal, another encrypted messaging system, was a violation of the Presidential Records Act, according to multiple sources in the room. The phone checks included whatever electronics staffers were carrying when they were summoned to the unexpected follow-up meeting, including government-issued and personal cellphones."

This administration is horrified and running scared because their own staffers don't believe the bullshit and misdirection they constantly spew.

At some point here, heads have to roll.

It's becoming abundantly clear that Spicer has not only lost control of his communications staff, but the administration as a whole can't plug leaks coming out of staffers from all corners who recognize Donald Trump's gross incompetence and repeated problems.

Read the whole report about leaks and emergency 'meetings' HERE.

Surely, The Donald can't be happy about Spicer's inability to lead his staff!

Holy Shit — Even Fox News Is Calling Out Donald Trump’s Anti-First Amendment Comments

Just… wow.

This exchange on live TV is really something.

On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace went after Reince Priebus, who is Donald Trump‘s Chief of Staff in the White House, regarding Trump’s comments about the news media being the “enemy of the people.”

And you know how it is — when you’re The Donald and you’ve lost Fox News, well, you’re probably losing everybody.

What Boycott?! Ivanka Trump Has The Best-Selling Perfumes On Amazon Right Now!

This is a bit of a surprise, especially considering all the companies that very publicly declined to carry Ivanka Trump's products over the last few weeks!

The First Daughter's perfumes are selling like crazy on Amazon.com right now, with her products having taken the top two best-selling spots on the site's beauty section -- whoa!!

Related: Stick It To Trump By Buying THESE 10 Things From Nordstrom

Her Eau de Parfum Spray for Women and Ivanka Trump For Women Roller Ball are the top two best sellers on the site right now -- and judging by the comments section for the products on Amazon itself, there's no shortage of controversy with them!

As of early Saturday, many users commented that they "support Ivanka" in the review sections of the product, while others comment on "bigotry, white nationalism, and fake news."

One user -- a woman named Miranda Taylor -- wrote on the site, according to Fortune, the following message:

"We don't have a lot extra but we felt we needed to show our support for our President and his family. If buying a $15 perfume helps just a little in sending a message to those companies that are caving in to the left and their intolerant hate of OUR President then so be it."

Using your last few bucks to buy Ivanka Trump's perfumes... OK then!

Regardless, there's no question Donald Trump's business interests -- and those of his children, like Ivanka -- have become highly politicized now that he's President.

John McCain Just Called Donald Trump A Dictator!

Now, Senator John McCain has seen a lot in his day -- but he's not exactly overlooking the dangers Donald Trump is posing to America, and our First Amendment, and the freedom of the press.

Speaking to host Chuck Todd on NBC's Meet The Press today, Senator McCain didn't hold back in calling out that terrible Trump tweet about the press becoming the enemy of the American people.

Video: Trump's Ridiculous Press Conference Goes To Late Night!

You remember that tweet Trump sent yesterday, right? It's this one (below):

Well, that attitude didn't sit so well with McCain, who went off on Trump in the interview.

McCain laid it all out there about Trump's dictatorial tendencies, too, with the Arizona Senator saying to Todd:

"I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time [without a free press]. That's how dictators get started ... When you look at history, the first thing that dictators do is shut down the press. And I'm not saying that President Trump is trying to be a dictator. I'm just saying we need to learn the lessons of history."

Uh-huh. Sure you're not saying President Trump is trying to be a dictator.

Suuuuuuuuuuure.

Related: Trump Made Chris Christie Order Meatloaf At The White House!

But seriously -- Senator McCain is right.

Trump is a horrifying wanna-be dictator, and the only thing that'll keep him from doing it -- besides his own gross incompetence as President -- is more people like McCain calling Trump out for the person he's become.

SIX New England Patriots Are Now Refusing To Visit The White House After Their Super Bowl Victory!

This is big!!!

The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl last week, and one of the rewards of doing that is a trip to the White House to visit the President, but now, at least six players will NOT be going to Washington later this year for the ceremony!!

Related: The White House Has NO Plans To Stop Saying 'Fake News'!

We've been reporting how defensive back Devin McCourty and tight end Martellus Bennett aren't going, but now we can confirm that FOUR MORE Patriots players are also boycotting the event: running back LeGarrette Blount, defensive end Chris Long, defensive tackle Alan Branch, and linebacker Dont'a Hightower.

Whoa!!!!

And while McCourty and Bennett specifically called out Donald Trump as the reason they wouldn't be going to the White House for the ceremony, the other players have cited other reasons -- including Hightower, who told ESPN that he's "been there, done that" -- as their reasons for not going.

For Blount, who was more blunt, the reason was pretty cut and dry in an interview:

"I will NOT be going to the White House. I don't feel welcome in that house. I'll leave it at that."

Wow!!!

Ride Sharing Companies Get Caught Up In Donald Trump’s Immigration Ban — Here Is Why TONS Of People Are Deleting Their Uber Accounts!

Look out, Uber and Lyft -- your politics are coming front and center in light of Donald Trump's immigration ban!

Thousands of people across America are actively deleting their Uber accounts -- and posting to social media about it -- while picking up Lyft, instead, and it all has to do with that awful executive order the President signed on Friday night.

Amazing!!!

But Uber didn't stop -- and social media reports on the ground indicated at the time that Uber drivers were rolling right through the boycott, picking up passengers and not showing solidarity with their taxi counterparts against Trump.

Donald Trump Is Reportedly Having Such Trouble Getting People To His Inauguration That He Is Paying Seat-Fillers To Be At The Event!

We know Donald Trump is already a historically unpopular President-elect, but is he SO undesirable that nobody wants to come to his inauguration?!

Anthony Michael Hall Faces SEVEN Years Behind Bars After Being Charged With Felony Battery Over Alleged Assault

Bad news for Anthony Michael Hall!

On Sunday, it was revealed that The Breakfast Club alum could end up behind bars for seven years as he was charged with felony battery with serious bodily injury by the El Lay county's district attorney. Oof!

Related: Eminem's Ex-Wife Sentenced To One Year Probation

As you surely know, Hall is accused of shoving his neighbor during a spat outside their Playa del Rey apartment complex. According to TMZ, there are unnamed circumstances which have bumped up the '80s icon's potential jail term from four to seven years. Yikes!

Reportedly, the alleged incident (which took place in mid-September) occurred after the Sixteen Candles star's neighbor left his gate open and Anthony angrily yelled at him to shut it. The 48-year-old then closed the gate himself. Unfortunately for the Boston-born artist, there is grainy footage which shows Anthony pushing one of the condo's residents to the ground. The victim was supposedly left with a broken wrist and an injured back.

Not to mention, this isn't the first time Hall's been in some hot water with his neighbors. In case you forgot, Anthony made headlines in 2011 after he allegedly threatened to fight one neighbor and was arrested on suspicion of disturbing the peace. Is it just us, or should Anthony totally move?

Nonetheless, we'll be keeping our eyes on this case for any and all updates. Stay tuned!

Kanye West Melts Down On Stage (Again), Calls Out Beyoncé, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, And More: ‘I’m On My Trump Sh*t Tonight’

Oh, Kanye West.

After the polarizing, controversial comments earlier this week about Donald Trump, the artist decided that one heated Saint Pablo show wasn't enough, apparently!

Last night in Sacramento, Yeezy doubled down on controversy, ranting and raving early in his set (before ending it completely after about 30 minutes), and upstaging his reunion with Kid Cudi to call out Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Jay Z, and, yes, Beyoncé!!!

Related: Get More Kanye News HERE

On Queen Bey -- after screaming "MTV, f*ck you," 'Ye said:

"Beyoncé—I was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn't perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling' [at the VMAs]. In my opinion...now don't go dissing Beyoncé, she's great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all equal. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are just to win. Fuck winning, fuck looking cool. Fuck looking cool. Fuck being cool. Fuck all that, bruh. I've been sent here to give y'all my truth even at the risk of my own life, my own success, my own career. Jay Z—call me, bruh. You still ain't called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don't send them at my head. Please call me. Talk to me like a man."

Uh.... Ok!!!

Fortunately -- or unfortunately -- Kanye was far from done, though.

He also took a shot at Hillary Clinton and compared her to models (?!), saying:

"This Saint Pablo tour is the most relevant [thing] happening. If your old ass keeps following old models, you'll be Hillary Clinton."

...right!

Video: Kim Drops Baby Number 3 Bombshell!

Obama wasn't far from his sights, either, with Yeezus saying about our current President:

"Obama couldn't make America great because he couldn't be him to be who he was. Black men have been slaves. Obama wasn't allowed to do this [screams] and still win. He had to be perfect. But being perfect don't always change shit, bro. Being perfect don't always change shit, bro."

Deep thoughts with Kanye, anyone?!

How about some more -- like calling out mainstream radio for not playing Frank Ocean or Kid Cudi:

"Radio, fuck you! Oh yeah, I'm on my Trump shit tonight. Radio—fuck you!"

And he even went after DJ Khaled at one time, too, because... why not??

"When cooler heads prevail and we can talk and realize we're all human beings and we all can stick together and we can all pull for this country in our own way, then that's what we should do. If there's anybody that has a problem with this, that needs to vent or rant or rave, there's another flight tomorrow. You're not gonna be on this one. I hope that's clear."

Clear, indeed!!

For what it's worth, all the trouble apparently started when a passenger made some comment about keeping their guns to an African-American seatmate, causing a ruckus.

At least, that's according to the user who uploaded the video (below):

"On my friend's @wirelessness flight from SFO [San Francisco] to Mexico, some kinda scuffle broke out where an individual with a ‘plaid shirt and a camo cap' said something racist (about being ‘glad to have kept his guns') to an African American lady, and she began to cry and freak out. They separated the two of them, and then the Captain of the flight got on the PA and made this announcement.'"

Ugh.

Sure seems like supporters of a certain political candidate have only been emboldened by his election...

It should be a long, long four years.

Donald Trump Reportedly Called Khloé Kardashian A ‘Fat Piglet’ — And Fired Her From Celebrity Apprentice Over Her Looks!

As every day passes, it seems Donald Trump's mess gets bigger and bigger as more people come forward with stories of his reprehensible behavior.

And it seems his latest victim of abusive words is Khloe Kardashian!

Back in 2009, Koko was on season eight of Celebrity Apprentice and according to the Huffington Post, several people who worked on the show have come forward to reveal Donald talked trash about the reality star's weight!

An editor who worked on the reality program claims the 70-year-old complained about the KUWTK star's looks and wanted to fire her for it, saying:

"He basically wanted to just get rid of her. He called her a 'piglet.'"

The editor even said that Trump asked his producers:

"What is this? We can't even get the hot one?"

If you're questioning this source's reliability, another insider at CA confirmed the story including:

"He said: ‘Why don't we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?'"

Ugh.

A second editor continued to back up both stories of the GOP candidate's behavior saying:

"When they fired [her], it wasn't on merit. It was on him not liking her."

Once again, the source confirms Trump's childish behavior saying he asked the producers:

"What's the reason we can get her off [the show]?"

Sadly this doesn't surprise us too much as there have been SEVERAL reports from people who were on the reality show that have talked about his disgusting behavior.

We just hope this opens a few more people's eyes as to just how morally reprehensible this man is!

Tom Hiddleston Is Wearing A Very Taylor Swift-Themed T-Shirt At Her Fourth Of July Party, And Twitter Is NOT Loving It

OK, this is pretty cringeworthy.

Taylor Swift is hosting her annual Fourth of July bash this weekend, with all kinds of celebs -- Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, and SO many more -- surrounding, but Tom Hiddleston is stealing the show.

Photos: Celeb Couples Who Moved Too Quickly!

Hiddleswift went a bit overboard on Sunday when Tom was captured on camera wearing an "I Heart T.S." muscle t-shirt on the beach with Tay Tay.

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below)!!!

Also, a shirt in the ocean?! Come on, Thor!!!

Regardless, the Internet was NOT feeling that -- and Twitter absolutely let Tom have it for this weird little 12-year-old move.

Ch-ch-check out some of the most brutal tweets (below):

Ouch!!

But seriously, man, what are you thinking with that shirt??

Yikes! Johnny Depp Alters Tattoo To Show The World How He REALLY Feels About Amber Heard!

Whoa!

Johnny Depp is no stranger to getting tattoos, but there's at least one on his body that is unacceptable -- and he went and made a change to it that tells a BIG story!

Related: See This Week's Best-Dressed Celebs HERE!

Last year, on his right knuckles, the actor inked the letters "SLIM" -- Amber Heard's nickname -- as a nod to his then-love (inset, above).

But after everything's gone to hell the last few months, it seems like everything has changed!

TMZ is reporting that Depp changed the 'L' in SLIM to a 'C,' and the 'I' to a 'U.'

What's that give us?! SCUM!

Whoa!!

There's a lesson here -- be careful what you ink on your body. Because now Johnny has 'SCUM' blasted across his knuckles...

Comedienne Julie Klausner Publicly Shames Zendaya’s Weight In An Intense Twitter Crusade… Don’t Expect An Apology!

There's A LOT to dissect to here so we're going to jump right in!

On Saturday night, Julie Klausner took direct aim at Zendaya for allegedly being too thin. The redhead started a Twitter riot for this controversial tweet:

Woah... Klausner really went there!

Related: Zendaya Rocks Paris Street Style

The comedienne then followed up her public body shaming message with these tweets:

Obviously, the singer's fans went NUTS.

In response to the backlash, J.K. came back with a bunch of inciting posts:

As for Zendaya herself, she fired back at Julie with this message:

Sounds like the actress is taking this pretty well!

Naturally, Klausner didn't retract her statements, finally tweeting:

Damn.

So, whose side are YOU on?

Spencer Pratt & Heidi Montag Compare The Hills Getting Canceled To 9/11! Seriously!

Um... what?!

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag spoke with Vice's website Broadly this week, and the couple shared some, um, interesting things from their days of fame on MTV's The Hills...

Related: Heidi's Dad In Trouble For Sexual Abuse On A Minor?!

Of course, it's been nearly 15 years since the couple made their mark on reality TV, but with that, they now have a unique -- or maybe crazy -- perspective about all of the money they blew and the influence they lost over the years.

Pratt, to his credit, was open and honest in the interview, going so far as to admit what his career was all about:

"We were fame whores, getting literally a million plus a year in photos and being hated for it. It's frustrating for me that people don't recognize that this was genius. This was innovating!"

Pratt, who claimed he ended up making more than a million bucks a year from MTV, earned himself paparazzi deals and hosting gigs, too -- and the couple ended up splurging on things like a $3,000-a-day hair and makeup budget!!!

Not surprisingly, it didn't last.

Related: Heidi WILL Be Returning To Reality TV!

Jersey Shore came along, and Pratt admits he should have seen it coming -- even though his show's cancellation was such a surprise that Pratt compared it to a horrible national tragedy:

"Sh*t, we knew how good the Jersey Shore was because we were super fans. So I personally was like, 'I need to be nutso at this point, like holding crystals to my head.' ... [The Hills] getting cancelled was our 9/11."

Uhh... WHAT?!

That's maybe not the most intelligent comparison Pratt could have made...

Related: Heidi Verbally Attacks Lauren Conrad Once Again!

The couple, who've been together for a decade and have by now blown through most of their money, live in Montag's father's beach house rent-free, and are mostly reclusive.

Time away from the spotlight is probably a good idea for them, considering this is what they're going to say on the record...

Aunt Viv Ain’t Done Yet! Janet Hubert Calls Stacey Dash a ‘Media Ho’ For Her Anti-BET Remarks!

Former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Janet Hubert has a lot on her mind these days!

Earlier this month, the actress put Jada Pinkett Smith on blast for boycotting the Oscars -- claiming that she only caused a scene because Will Smith wasn't nominated!

But now, the 60-year-old has Stacey Dash in her crosshairs -- and she has some more harsh feedback to give!

And you best believe Aunt Viv had a LOT to say about Dash on Friday during her interview with The Huffington Post, quipping:

"Somebody needs to slap the little bit of black she got on her off of her, okay? Because girlfriend has worked on BET more than most actresses have. I think she's just saying this kind of bull because she wants sensationalism."

Hubert even went as far as to call the Fox News contributor a "media ho"! Oh, the shade!

Which Stores Are Closed on Thanksgiving or Black Friday?

Black Friday is notorious the world over for creating an environment in which strangers throttle each other in the wee hours of the morning to score deals on expensive products, just after they spent an entire day giving thanks for the stuff they already had. We’ve seen a major backlash against the philosophy behind Black Friday this year, and the consequences are that companies are shuttering their doors on Black Friday to appear magnanimous and principled in the eyes of the consumer.

This may be a very good thing, especially since experts predict that this year, half of holiday shopping will be done online, with comparable deals being held earlier in week, starting as early as the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Why foster such a violent environment, pay workers and make them come in hours after they began a rolling turkey coma, and risk lawsuits (or homicides) just to make a buck?

And then there’s the more terrifying trend of conducting Black Friday-esque deals on Thanksgiving Day itself, forcing employees to sacrifice what should be a relaxing holiday spent with loved ones giving thanks, and not trying to pry apart shoppers fighting for the same flatscreen TV.

These companies are saying no to opening on Thanksgiving, and some are saying no to opening on Black Friday as well.

The big chain stores that are closing on Thanksgiving include:

Nordstrom
DSW
Costco
GameStop
BJ’s
DSW
American Girl
Staples
PetSmart
Sierra Trading Post
Barnes & Noble
Publix
Pier 1 Imports
Dillard’s
Patagonia
H&M
Sam’s Club
The Home Depot
Marshalls
Home Depot
Crate and Barrel
Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts
TJ Maxx
Lowe’s
Burlington Coat Factory
REI

Of the 26 stores mentioned above, only one is committed to closing on Black Friday. I don’t begrudge anyone a deal, but the environment that Black Friday fosters is unhealthy at best.

The President and CEO Jerry Stritzke of REI issued a statement about its unlikely decision to remain closed on the busiest shopping day of the year, saying:

REI is closing on Black Friday.

You read that correctly. On November 27, we’ll be closing all 143 of our stores and paying our employees to head outside.

Here’s why we’re doing it.

For 76 years, our co-op has been dedicated to one thing and one thing only: a life outdoors. We believe that being outside makes our lives better. And Black Friday is the perfect time to remind ourselves of this essential truth.

We’re a different kind of company—and while the rest of the world is fighting it out in the aisles, we’ll be spending our day a little differently. We’re choosing to opt outside, and want you to come with us.

The outdoor sporting goods retailer also created a hashtag called #OptOutside, to drive home their commitment to opt out of Black Friday mania, and to encourage people to spend more time with nature, and with loved ones. Hard to argue with such logic.

And even though it’s not logical to hope other stores may follow this trend and at the very least, push their opening times to when the sun rises, with so much shopping happening online, it may be in everyone’s best interest, shopper and employee, to just stay home and [...]

Candace Cameron Bure Stands Up For Starbucks’ Red Cups

Who knew a Starbucks cup could incite such hatred, controversy, and vitriolic discussion? It’s time for some reason, and that reason is coming from Candace Cameron Bure.

Known best for her (awesome) role as DJ Tanner in Full House, Bure is now a co-host on The View, and a self-avowed Christian. Bure joined the discussion about Starbucks’ annual red cups, disagreeing with the many people who think that Starbucks toned down its festive decorations because they believed Christmas decorations would cause offense. She also disagreed with the notion that secular symbols of Christmas are important at all, and that these issues aren’t important to those who celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.

Bure posted this succinct passage on her Facebook page, defending the cups:

Starbucks War on Christmas?

It’s a red cup, folks.

Until Starbucks puts a baby Jesus or nativity scene on the cup while saying Merry Christmas, then pulls it because they say it’s offensive, let’s talk. I don’t remember Starbucks ever being a Christian company, do you?

A Santa, a snowflake, some holly, a polar bear, some jingle bells or plain red cup don’t define Christmas for me as a Christian. My relationship with Jesus does.

So, I will joyfully sip on my Starbucks coffee, in a plain red cup, and instead of complaining about the lack of decorations, I will lovingly share the good news of Jesus Christ with friends and co-workers or anyone who’s willing to engage in conversation.

Merry Christmas to all!

Heads up—this is how someone of any denomination should address the so-called “controversy.”

Bure’s comments are not without Christian teaching, and she doesn’t hide her faith. But her wording is telling: she said that it would be a bigger issue if Starbucks had considered imagery of Jesus Christ offensive, but that the most profitable thing to come of such an issue would be a “talk.” Like, an actual, respectful exchange of ideas and a respect for others’ differing opinions.

She also finds no issue with the plain red cups because Starbucks isn’t a Christian company, and shouldn’t be expected to show traditional Christian imagery at Christmas. The art they usually display is secular Christmas, more winter-festival related than religious at all, and therefore, Christians who celebrate Christmas for its religious meaning shouldn’t care about those symbols anyway. Who needs a snowflake on their overpriced latte container to fully enjoy Christmas?

And let’s not forget: the design was never meant to strip Christmas-ness from the cup; it was merely meant to create an elegant, minimalistic effect that is currently in vogue. Starbucks made an aesthetic choice independent from religious influence, and so the outrage is, to say the least, unfounded.
