Former Felicity star Keri Russell heard some noises around 3:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning coming from the upper floor of her Brooklyn Heights brownstone. She got up to investigate the disturbance that had woken her up, and found a window in her living room and her front door wide open.
Keri Russell got burglarized! I wonder if the crooks knew they were in a celebrity’s home? And that she was sleeping just a room or two over? The actress, who’s currently working on the FX series, The Americans, reported to the police that the thieves made off with a laptop computer, a necklace, earrings, and a Filson handbag.
A group of 200 experienced skydivers participated in a group jump in Arizona on Tuesday in what was supposed to be a week of fun for the enthusiasts. Unfortunately, two of the men collided just a few hundred feet above the ground, and they were both killed when their chutes collapsed and they plummeted to the ground.
According to witnesses, Keiron O’Rouke, 40, and Bernd Schmehl, 51, ran into each other with their parachutes open about 200 to 300 feet from the ground. The impact caused the canopies to collapse.
Abby, Brin, and Laurel Hepner were born November 22 to Hannah and Tom Hepner, who were not using any fertility treatments. Just one fertilized egg split into three, and voila! Three sisters with a matching set of DNA.
Holy crap, there are a lot of people on the Internet hating on me recently. In just the past couple of weeks, the comments on my blog have exploded, douche canoes on message boards have had multiple conversations about me, and someone even devoted a whole series of blog posts to talk about how evil I am because I filed for divorce.
I’ve been called a hypocrite, a traitor, a slut, a whore, the c-word. I’ve been accused of destroying my children’s lives, smashing my ex-husband’s balls, and basically ripping apart the fabric of society. Apparently I’m an adulterer caught in the snare of the devil and even though I’m a hideous evil man-hating beast, I somehow manage to hop from bed to bed of any man that will have me. Seriously you guys -- they said I was ugly. What the heck do my looks have to do with anything?
Valessa Robinson, the troubled teen that helped kill her own mother in 1998, is scheduled to be released from prison on Friday after serving 15 years of a 20-year sentence. She was 15 at the time of her mother’s death, and 17 when convicted of third-degree murder.
Florida law dictates that 85 percent of the prison sentence must be served before being eligible for parole, but the courts applied the time Valessa was behind bars during the trial as time served.
