I'm a former Forbes journalist and blogger who has also waxed lyrical for other places, including Marie Claire, The Frisky, The New York Post, and Women on the Fence. For my book, Can't Think Straight, I was on The Today Show, The Joy Behar Show, The Gayle King Show, and others. (But not Hoarders. One can dream.) I like to tell it like it is, almost as much as I like cats. I know a lot about celebrities and nothing about my neighbors.Visit me at my website or blog.
Eating SpaghettiOs got a woman more than a month in jail. The 23-year-old Georgia woman, Ashley Gabrielle Huff, was pulled over in Gainsville, Florida, for a routine traffic violation, and when the officer spied a spoon with a dried substance on it in a plastic bag, she insisted it was spaghetti sauce, as she said she liked keeping a can of SpaghettiOs in her car and eating it. Not buying her spaghetti eating story, she was booked for possession of methamphetamine.
Lisa Knoefel was only trying to do the right thing when she took in troubled teen Sabrina Zunich and became her foster mother and welcomed her into her family. Sabrina had been taken away from her caregiver, her grandmother, after she became unruly and it was determined her grandmother could no longer care for her. Before that, Sabrina's mother could no longer care for her because of drug and alcohol addiction. No doubt Sabrina had had a tough life so far. How lucky for her that Lisa was willing to help her out and give her a stable home with her husband, teen daughter, and toddler, in Ohio. Tragically, Sabrina paid Lisa back by killing her.
Missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham disappeared two weeks ago and police still aren't any closer to finding her whereabouts. Fortunately, however, they do have a suspect in custody: Jesse L. Matthew Jr., 32, who was arrested last week after he fled Virginia when he learned police wanted to speak with him. And now, horrifyingly, police think he may have had something to do with the murder of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington, 20, whose body was found in 2009. And police are even beginning to wonder if perhaps the mystery of what happened to two other young women who went missing from the Charlottesville area might be solved now too.
When 18-year-old AyperiAlekseeva developed stomach cramps and became so sick she couldn't eat or drink, doctors were baffled. So they decided to X-ray her intestines and what they saw in her tummy is something you normally only associate with kitty cats. Alekseeva had a nine-pound hairball in her stomach. Nine pounds! We're talking, like, a baby made of hair. In her stomach. OMG. How did this happen?
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are sure having some high drama over at Fashion Week in Paris. Who can forget the look of pure terror that Kim's face tried to make as a red carpet prankster grabbed her legs/her hair/or her face, depending on which report you believe? Who can forget the sheer chaos that erupted as the crowd surged on the prankster, VitaliiSediuk, who has already been kicked out of the United States for pulling the same stunts here, but somehow has the money to do this kind of thing all over the globe? Well, my friends, we can't forget. No, we shall remember this until the day we draw our last breath, and manage to squeak out, "Kiiiiim ... look ooouuuut ..." just before we shed this mortal coil. THAT'S how dramatic it was. But Sediuk wasn't done yet!!
