911 Called After Tori Spelling Has A Complete “Breakdown”

Tori Spelling, daughter of Aaron Spelling and star of Beverly Hills, 90210, has had her share of hardships in her life. After her father died, it was expected that Tori was to inherit a large part of his $500 million fortune. However, because of the estranged relationship between Tori and her mother, the actress was handed $800,000 and nothing more. Tori has had financial problems ever since.

“It’s no mystery why I have money problems,” Tori wrote in one of her books. “I grew up rich beyond anyone’s wildest dreams. I never knew anything else. Even when I try to embrace a simpler lifestyle, I can’t seem to let go of my expensive tastes. Even when my tastes aren’t fancy, they’re still costly. I moved houses to simplify my life, but lost almost a million dollars along the way.”

Tori’s financial issues are not her only problems, either. In 2014 the actress was admitted to the hospital for an “Ebola scare,” but sources close to Tori say it was actually a nervous breakdown.

Her friends claimed Tori was faking illness to the point where she actually made herself sick, was fighting with her husband constantly, and was freaking out about her money troubles. They said the “Ebola scare” was just a way to cover up the mental health issues. One friend said that an intervention was being planned.

“I am hoping that shedding some light on it for all of her fans to read may actually lead her to seek some change in her life,” the friend told TMZ. “Kind of like David Hasselhoff watching the drunk video of himself eating a hamburger.”

Since the hospital visit four years ago, the mom of five seemed relatively level-headed and steady in her life. However, police are currently being dispatched to her home for a potentially serious reason.

The Reverend Billy Graham Has Passed Away At 99

Billy Graham, one of the world’s most famous Christian ministers, has passed away at age 99.

A spokesman for the reverend’s Evangelistic Association said Graham died at his mountaintop cabin in Montreat, North Carolina on Wednesday morning.

A representative for his son Franklin’s organization, Samaritan’s Purse, reported that Graham was surrounded by family when he died just before 8 a.m.

While a cause of death was not reported immediately, Ted Shearer of DeMoss Associates told Fox News the reverend had died from natural causes.

Graham had been ill and withdrawn from the public eye for many years now. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1992, and hospitalized for pneumonia in 2011.

Graham spoke before his last revival meeting in New York in 2005, at age 86.

Born on a dairy farm in Charlotte, North Caroline, Graham was drawn to preaching at age 16, when he listened to a traveling evangelist.

He was ordained in 1939, and went on to become one of the world’s most popular and well-known Christian ministers.

His Evangelistic Association estimates that Graham personally preached to more than 210 million people in 185 countries, with millions more receiving message of faith in magazines, radio programs, Christian television broadcasts, and over the internet.

Condolences and celebration for Graham have poured in from around the world following news of his death, including from the president and vice president.

Research Says Picking Your Nose Is Actually Healthy – But You Have To Eat The Boogers

Picking your nose is seen as a gross habit around the world, but that doesn’t mean it’s rare.

In a survey, 96% of teenagers admit to digging for gold regularly, while a surprising 90% of adults say they do it too.

In fact, the average person cleans out the attic four times a day, even if they’re in the 10% that won’t admit to it.

But that may not be a bad thing. While it’s certainly bad table manners to pick your nose in front of friends and family, research says there are health benefits to burrowing for boogies.

The only downside is you need to eat what you find to get those health benefits.

Napper and his students pick their noses.The Sheaf

It’s gross but true, according to biochemist Scott Napper. He says humans may have actually evolved to eat their boogers because the little nuggets are so good for us.

“I’ve got two beautiful daughters and they spend an amazing amount of time with their fingers up their nose,” he told the CBC.

“And without fail, it goes right into their mouth afterwards. Could they just be fulfilling what we’re truly meant to do?”

If you’re feeling skeptical – or nauseous – just wait until you learn what boogers can do for your body.

The Government Wants To Replace Food Stamps With A “Blue Apron-Type” Delivery Service

Millions of people across the country could see their monthly food stamps shrink if President Trump’s administration gets its way.

As part of their 2019 budget, the government unveiled a surprising plan to replace some benefits with a “Blue Apron-type” home delivery program.

Currently, food stamp recipients can use an electronic benefits card (EBT) to buy food at grocery stores.

If the new program is approved, it would replace some monthly benefits with a box of food delivered to the recipient’s door.

Blue Apron delivers boxes of ingredients to its customers at home.Blue Apron

The program, currently named “America’s Harvest Box,” would include non-perishable foods like rice, pasta, and canned goods.

The program was developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the proposal says that all food included in the boxes would be locally grown or sourced.

Sonny Perdue, the Secretary of Agriculture, calls the plan an “innovative approach to providing nutritious food to people who need assistance feeding themselves and their families – and all of it is home grown by American farmers and producers.”

Mick Mulvaney, the Office of Management and Budget Director, compared the plan to Blue Apron, a subscription service that mails fresh ingredients to customers each week.

But some people are already skeptical about the new plan.

Woman Shows Compassion To Burglar When The Rest Of Us Wouldn’t

A few years ago, our alarm system went off in the middle of the night. The siren blared and it woke us all from a dead sleep. We didn’t know what to do. Was someone in the house? Were they going to hurt us? Do we call the police before we do anything else?

My dad, perhaps ill-advisedly, grabbed the largest knife from the knife block and went to the basement where there was a presumed intruder. He was ready to attack if the situation warranted it. Instead, he found our cat who had chewed through the wires. Oops.

Facebook

We may not have actually been in danger, but I can tell you that the last thing on anyone’s mind was befriending the person we thought was trying to rob our home. My dad was ready to attack whoever was breaking in, and the rest of us were ready to help if necessary.

Leah Ross initially had the same reaction, terror, but then she realized there was a better option to fear: compassion.

Donald Trump Jr.’s Wife Sent To Hospital After Opening “Mysterious” Envelope

The Trump family is on high alert after Donald Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa, was exposed to a “white powder” at her home.

According to police, Vanessa Trump was at the family’s Manhattan apartment when she opened a letter addressed to her husband. A white powder was inside the envelope, which prompted immediate concern. Mrs. Trump called 911, telling dispatchers she was “coughing and felt nauseous.”

ABC News

Both the New York Police Department’s intelligence department and Secret Service agents were investigating the incident.

“The Secret Service and our law enforcement partners in New York City are investigating a suspicious package addressed to one of our protectees received today in New York, New York. This is an active investigation and we cannot comment any further,” Secret Service Special Agent Jeffrey Adams said in a statement.

Both Vanessa Trump and two other unidentified individuals were decontaminated by firefighters at the scene. Vanessa was taken to hospital as a precaution.

Zimbio

After extensive testing, it was confirmed that the substance was non-hazardous. However, more testing will be conducted at a lab in New York City to identify what exactly it was. Vanessa and Donald Jr. share five children together, none of whom were at home at the time of the incident.

This is not the first time the Trumps have been sent mysterious powders, either. In March of 2016, Eric Trump was mailed an envelope with white powder that was later found to be harmless. That same year, envelopes containing white powder were sent to Trump Tower, which was serving as Trump’s campaign headquarters.

Police are still investigating the incident, trying to track down who sent the powder.

Church Group Doesn’t Leave A Tip, Then The Server Gets Fired

If you’ve ever worked as a server or anyone else who depends on tips to supplement your wages, then you know how frustrating it can be when customers either under tip or don’t tip at all. Servers make less than minimum wage with the assumption that their tips will make up the difference, but Tamlynn Yoder will tell you this isn’t always the case.

Yoder, a 25-year-old resident of Lake Park, Florida, learned the hard way that tipping isn’t guaranteed, but that you can’t just go off about it. Yoder worked at an Outback Steakouse when an order came in from Christ Fellowship church. The church ordered 25 steaks, 25 chickens, and 25 potatoes on a Wednesday morning for pickup.

“We take the order over the phone, we put the order together, take payment and then take order to the car,” Yoder said. “It’s a lot of work just as much as serving.”

The takeout order totaled $735, and when someone from Christ Fellowship came to pick up the order, that’s exactly how much money Yoder and her coworkers received. No tip was left, despite spending most of the day preparing the 75-item order. Yoder says she only ended up with $18 in tips for the entire day because Christ Fellowship placed such a large order and didn’t leave a gratuity.

“Tips [are] how we make our money, we still make a low wage as servers,” Yoder said.

But even though it’s not her fault that the church didn’t leave a tip, Yoder was still fired from her position at Outback the next day. That’s because it wasn’t the lack of tip that got the server fired, it was her complaints about it.

Olympian Scott Hamilton Updates Fans About His Lifelong Cancer Battle

If you followed figure skating in the 1980s, you’ll remember that Scott Hamilton was one of the sport’s toughest competitors.

Not only did he win Olympic bronze and gold medals back to back in 1980 and 1984, Hamilton was also both the World Figure Skating Champion and the National Champion for four years in a row.

But longtime fans will know Hamilton has faced his toughest challenge off the ice. The Olympian has been plagued by cancer diagnoses multiple times, including multiple brain tumors.

“I have a unique hobby of collecting life-threatening illness,” Hamilton told People about his most recent case in 2016. “It’s six years later, and it decided that it wanted an encore.”

Hamilton’s health troubles actually began when he was just two years old. He mysteriously stopped growing and had trouble digesting food. Figure skating actually helped improve his condition, but to this day Hamilton is only 5’3″.

Then, in 1997, he received the tragic news that he had testicular cancer. Doctors told Hamilton he had actually been born with the disease, meaning he won his Olympic medals while living with cancer.

While Hamilton’s tumor was treated with chemotherapy and surgery, that was the beginning, not the end, of his health crisis.

L.L. Bean Is Changing Their 100-Year-Old Policy, And It Affects Every Customer

L.L. Bean has been an American institution for over a century. The outdoor retailer has long provided customers with excellent customer service and products that come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

They also have this incredible Bootmobile.

Wired

L.L. Bean is perhaps most well-known for their 100% satisfaction guaranteed return policy, which allows customers to return any and all products from L.L. Bean, regardless of how long they’ve had it or how damaged it was. The policy was originated by Leon Leonwood Bean, who saw 90 of his first 100 pairs of boots returned to his store. He gave each customer their money back and vowed to make a better boot.

This policy has been in place for 106 years, but now the company has made some serious changes to it.

The End Of CDs? Two More Major Chains Will Stop Selling Them

If you’re still in the habit of listening to music on your car’s CD player, we have bad news.

The music format is still popular around the world, but not in America. Last year, CD sales nationwide dropped by 18.5%. Compare last year’s 89 million CDs sold to the 800 million sold in 2001 (at the height of the CD’s popularity).

The golden age of CD stores is long gone.Kims Loans

Those shrinking numbers were enough to scare some of America’s biggest stores away from selling CDs altogether.

The electronics retailer Best Buy has just announced it will stop selling CDs on July 1. The plan is part of a way to cut costs for the chain, which Billboard reports was only making $40 million annually from CD sales.

Best Buy will stop selling CDs this summer.AP

Ironically, the store plans to continue carrying vinyl records for at least the next two years, since the format has become popular (and profitable) again thanks to music fans and collectors.

As if the news wasn’t bad enough, Best Buy isn’t the only chain taking CDs off their shelves.

An Exploding Coconut Is The Latest Strange Thing Left In A Coffin Meant For Cremation

One of the biggest questions that just about everybody has to face at some point is this: what exactly do you want done with your body once you pass on?

The Independent

It’s a question with plenty of feasible answers, and the reasoning behind just about any of them is equally valid. Do you want a religious ceremony in the place of worship of your choice, with a solemn burial to accompany it? Maybe you want to donate your organs to those who need them most first? Or maybe your wish is to be dressed up like Elvis in Blue Hawaii and shot out of a canon into a volcano? We’re not here to judge.

NMC

A very popular method of body disposal is cremation, as it means your burial is much easier (or even preservation should you want to be kept in a ceramic jar), and your ashes can be scattered at a place of your choosing should you want (although you’re technically not REALLY allowed to do that anymore).

Everplans

However, one thing that people often forget about cremation is that, well, your coffin-housed body has to go into an incinerator. Why is this a problem you might ask? Well, it turns out that some people like sending off their loved ones with items that really, really shouldn’t get put into an incinerator…

Fans Are Pretty Sure They Know What Kylie Jenner Named Her Daughter

Kylie Jenner gave birth over the weekend, confirming all the rumors we already knew. But because people are always hungry for a story, there’s now speculation as to what the name of her daughter will be, and we’ve gotta say…some theories add up.

Kylie revealed the birth of her first child on Instagram the same day of the Super Bowl, and shared her reasoning for keeping it all a secret.

♥️

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on Feb 4, 2018 at 12:27pm PST

The new mom apologized to fans for keeping everything so private, not that she owed anyone an explanation.

YouTube

Kylie also posted a video on her YouTube channel which gave a glimpse into her nine month pregnancy, and also revealed the first photos of Kim Kardashian’s newest child, Chicago West. Kylie was one of the first people to hold Chicago, and older sister Kim jokingly told her “I need to school you on what your vagina is about to feel like.”

YouTube

In true Kardashian fashion, Kylie and her boyfriend, Travis Scott, are keeping their daughter’s name on the down-low. However, some eagle-eyed fans have put together a theory that actually makes a lot of sense.

“Sex And The City” Star Reveals Family Tragedy After Five Days Of Hope

Family ties are tight, no matter how far apart you are. For Kim Cattrall, who starred on Sex and the City, different countries didn’t keep her from trying to find her brother.

One day ago on Instagram, Cattrall revealed that her brother, Chris, had been missing since January 30th.

“His keys, cell phone, & wallet left on the table and his front door unlocked. This is not like Chris. He would never leave his unlocked home without those items nor his 7 beloved dogs.”

Chris Cattral went missing in Alberta, Canada. People all over social media shared the message, hoping to bring Chris back to his family. Kim spent five days retweeting and posting information about her brother’s disappearance, hoping he would come home soon.

“He’s a one-of-a-kind brother,” Kim Cattrall wrote. “Help us bring him home safe.”

CBC/Twitter

Chris Cattral’s step-daugher, Katie Osmond, also posted about his disappearance.

“I know it’s hard to find people when they’ve gone missing,” she wrote. “I’m praying that he comes home safe and unharmed.”

CTV News

Sadly, on February 4th, Kim Cattrall announced the “unexpected passing” of Chris.

The news of Chris’s death comes two days after the five-year anniversary of his father’s death.

RCMP officers confirmed that Chris Cattrall’s body had been found, and that their investigation had concluded. They say the death is not considered suspicious.

Kylie Jenner Gives Birth

In what was the worst kept secret in Hollywood for nine months, confirmation of Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy has finally happened…because she literally gave birth.

If you remember, Kylie was reported pregnant in September 2017 with her boyfriend, Travis Scott. The 20 year old, who made $41 million last year, has kept her pregnancy a secret, never confirming or denying the rumors.

The father is Jenner’s boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott. The two have been dating since April, after Kylie’s split with long-time boyfriend, rapper Tyga.

Insider Weekly

“He was so excited he couldn’t keep it in,” says an insider. “He’s been so affectionate and protective of Kylie since they found out. He can’t wait to be a dad.”

Neither Kylie nor Travis commented as the stories started swirling, which only made people more curious.

Speculation grew when Kylie was noticeably absent from both the Kardashian Christmas party and the family Christmas photo. However, her sister Khloe revealed that Kylie really was at the event.

“Merry Christmas! People think you weren’t there last night,” Khloé said to Kylie in one Snapchat video as the younger sister replied: “I was.”

Snapchat

It seemed like Kylie could finally be inching closer to a public return, however privacy breaches in her own home forced Kylie to stay cooped up, with everyone wanting to get the first pictures of the pregnant starlet.

“I really feel bad for Kylie because there’s always somebody that’s trying to exploit a certain situation,” Kris said. “To have somebody in her own home trying to snap pictures they shouldn’t be snapping is really, really stressful. You want to be able to trust the people that you’re surrounded by, but we have to really be on alert at all time, and that’s extremely upsetting when you feel like you can’t be in your own bedroom or bathroom.”

Many people took this as a confirmation of the pregnancy. Everything about Kylie’s rumored pregnancy has been kept under wraps, with no photos of her surfacing since the announcement. It’s been very clear to everyone who is following along that Kylie wanted to keep things to herself.

But then, she had a massive crib delivered (and assembled) to her home, which was another piece of evidence that confirmed what most of us already knew.

Daily Mail

Now, the youngest Kar-Jenner finally put all the speculation to rest when she posted on her Instagram page today.

He Offered His Belongings For Someone To Kill Him. Instead, People Chose To Save Him.

As much as we hate to admit it, suicide is a regular occurrence in our society, and oftentimes it’s hard to even know what to do about it.

Radio Monash

Studies show that nearly 90% of people with suicidal thoughts suffer from some form of mental illness, be it as treatable as anxiety or clinical depression, or something more serious such as bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder or even post-traumatic stress disorder.

While not all of them end up acting on it, it’s an unfortunate phenomenon that will only continue as long as we don’t offer up aid to those who are suffering.

Wikimedia

Science and medicine have fortunately come a long way in treating conditions like this, and there are plenty of both medical and psychological solutions to these conditions, such as taking medication or going to counseling.

Unfortunately, it can often be difficult for people suffering from these conditions to seek help, as they may either feel like they don’t deserve it, or it may be too expensive for them to afford, or they might not even truly realize that what they’re feeling isn’t normal.

Imgur

It’s times like this that people suffering can often use a helping hand, and in the case of one man from Australia, things had really reached a critical point: he was literally advertising for someone to kill him.

Mark Your Calendar For A Once-In-A-Lifetime Super Lunar Eclipse

After last year’s solar eclipse made everyone in America stop and stare, we’re about to be treated to another beautiful and rare celestial event.

Mark your calendar and set an early morning alarm for January 31, because it’s going to be your only chance to see what NASA is calling the “super blue blood moon.”

A super moon.AP

The rare combination of special conditions, which also includes a total lunar eclipse, is a true once-in-a-lifetime event. The last time a lunar eclipse during a blue moon was visible in America was 1866, just a year after the Civil War.

In case you’re not sure what all of those rare lunar events mean, here’s what you can expect:

A super moon is when the moon is at its closest point to Earth. Full moons during a super moon are 14% bigger and 30% brighter than full moons at their furthest point from Earth.

A blue moon is the second full moon in a single calendar month – no, it’s not really blue. Blue moons usually happen once every 2 1/2 years, but 2018 will have a second blue moon in March.

A partial lunar eclipse.AP

A lunar eclipse is when the moon’s orbit “hides it” behind the Earth, where it is blocked from direct sunlight and is covered by the Earth’s shadow.

While partial eclipses happens twice a year, total eclipses like this upcoming one are much rarer.

A blood moon.AP

A blood moon is named for the reddish color the moon takes when it passes through the Earth’s shadow. Sunlight refracted through the Earth’s atmosphere shines on it, creating a striking red effect.

If you want to see this incredible combination in person, you’re in luck. Because everyone in America will have a chance to catch at least part of it.

Hero Of Kentucky School Shooting Describes How He Saved A Friend’s Life In The Chaos

In the aftermath of 2018’s first deadly school shooting, the small town of Benton, Kentucky is thanking an unlikely hero.

Two teenagers were killed after one of their fellow students opened fire at the town’s Marshall County High School. Another 14 students were shot, and four more were injured in the rush to escape the school.

The tiny community of less than 5,000 people is in shock as victims as young as 14 years old remain in the hospital. But everyone in Benton is thankful for Tristan Cline.

The junior was just arriving at school on Tuesday morning when the gunman opened fire. Cline described the terrifying scene to CBS:

“I saw everybody rush out in a panic. I mean, it had to have been 400 kids, and I started to flee in my car and that’s when I saw my friend Danny.”

Cline says his friend had been shot while trying to escape the school, and had collapsed on the lawn outside.

Despite the risk to his life, Cline didn’t hesitate to help his friend, and authorities say his quick thinking may have saved his life.

Ikea Has A Solution To The Sleep Issue That’s Ruining Your Relationship

How many of you share a bed with a cover hog? You know the type. Someone who decides that their comfort, and their comfort only is important.

There is nothing more annoying than laying in bed with someone when all of a sudden they roll over and take the entire duvet with them. You’re left cold, vulnerable, and exposed, while you lay on a bed with only your pajamas keeping you warm. Meanwhile, your partner is over there living the life of luxury all wrapped up in a nice, warm duvet.

It can often lead to a lot of fights and tension between you and your partner, because you want more covers and they don’t care that you don’t have then. More than 1/3 of people in relationships say this is an issue they deal with, and now Ikea wants to help solve that problem.

Gay Couple Suing After Only One Of Their Twins Is Granted Citizenship

When Elad Dvash-Banks, an Israeli national, and Andrew Dvash-Banks, an American citizen, welcomed their twin boys, it seemed like everything was perfect. They were now a family of four and they had so many experiences to come.

Elad and Andrew met in Israel ten years ago when Andrew was there studying. The two fell in love, but since they couldn’t get married in either the United States or Israel, they moved to Canada and got married in 2010. They knew they wanted to have children, so they used an anonymous egg donor and a surrogate, and welcomed their twins in 2016.

However, when the couple brought their sons to the American consulate in Toronto to apply for citizenship, things got a little more complicated.

Country Legend Dies 4 Months After Being Diagnosed With Rare Disease

Another celebrity has left us too soon, and unfortunately, there wasn’t much anyone could do to stop it.

Lari White, famed country music star, passed away Tuesday morning surrounded by her friends and family.

White rose to fame in the 80s after performing in a musical competition in Tennessee. She then entered the You Can Be A Star talent show in Nashville, blowing away the audience and judges with her incredible voice and stage presence.

In a few years time, she would take the national headlines by storm with her 1994 album, “Wishes.”

White shot up the charts with singles like That’s My Baby, That’s How You Know (When You’re In Love), and Now I Know.

She would go on to win not one, but three Grammy Awards for the Best Southern, Country or Bluegrass Gospel Album.

But her ambitions didn’t end there, she had a taste of the limelight as a star, and wanted more.
