Joan Rivers Refuses Apology For Cleveland Kidnapping Victims

Joan Rivers Refuses Apology For Cleveland Kidnapping Victims

Comedienne Joan Rivers is refusing to apologize for a joke that she made at the expense of Cleveland kidnapping victims Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight and Amanda Berry. The question fans of the comedienne have been asking is whether or not she took her comedy bit too far this time?

She appeared on the “Today” show with her daughter Melissa when they spoke of their reality show and the subject of their living arrangements came up. Of that, Joan commented, “Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space.”

When questioned further about the joke, she said, “They got to live rent free for more than a decade.”

On Wednesday, attorneys for Amanda and Gina called Joan’s jokes “hurtful and shocking”. Their statement said, “We understand Ms. Rivers is a comedienne; however, the idea that a celebrity would say something this hurtful, on national television, no less, is beyond shocking and disappointing.”

Joan has since commented that the whole thing was a joke and that we all need to lighten up. She said, “I’m a comedienne. I know what those girls went through. It was a little, stupid joke. There is nothing to apologize for. I made a joke. That’s what I do. Calm down. Calm f—— down. I’m a comedienne. They’re free, so let’s move on.”

Tori Spelling: Abusing Vicodin & Oxycodone?

Tori Spelling: Abusing Vicodin & Oxycodone?

Former “90210″ actress Tori Spelling is featured on the front cover of the newest issue of “Star” magazine. On this week’s cover, the tabloid makes the shocking claims that Tori has been abusing Vicodin and Oxycodone! Could you imagine the lawsuit that may stem from this week’s issue?!?

In order to cope with her husband Dean McDermott’s cheating issues, she has allegedly turned to mixing pills with alcohol. Of course, Dean is said to be super worried about the safety of their four children — even though he was rumored to be their main caretaker. This is said to be one of the reasons why she won’t actually file for divorce from Dean — because she doesn’t want that sole responsibility lying on her shoulders. Still, she has the right to be with someone who is faithful to her, doesn’t she?

The magazine also claims that Tori made a shocking statement that ribcages are sexy. Ummm, no. No, they are not. Seeing someone else’s ribcage makes us think that they need to eat a sandwich.

The magazine’s question as to whether or not Tori will actually lose her children is a bit off-center. She’s in the public eye, has gobs upon gobs of money and not only that, but someone has to actually prove that she is a pill popping Vicodin junkie before anything even gets done. Even then, she will have to go to rehab to get help. In that case, we’re guessing that Dean would keep the kids in order for her to receive treatment. So the short answer is no, Tori isn’t likely to lose her kids anytime soon.

What do you think of this vile-filled issue of “National Enquirer”?

National Enquirer: Portia De Rossi Expecting A Baby?!?

National Enquirer: Portia De Rossi Expecting A Baby?!?

Daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is featured on the front cover of the latest copy of the “National Enquirer” magazine. The tabloid claims that Ellen’s wife Portia De Rossi is involved in some kind of baby scandal. Has Portia confessed to Ellen that she is pregnant?!?

These two have been together forever and we highly doubt that if they wanted a baby together, that it would be some kind of “stunning confession”. Surely they have probably talked about the prospect of having children and either decided against it — or decided to wait until they were ready. Either way, it’s not really anyone else’s business and their privacy should be respected.

In other related news, the magazine claims that Sharon Stone has had a stroke and a secret hospital emergency. Has she faced death for the third time? That would probably come as a shocker to Sharon herself!

Are you buying the magazine’s reports?

LINDSEY VONN Best Friends With ELIN NORDEGREN

LINDSEY VONN Best Friends With ELIN NORDEGREN

Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, who is dating golfing pro Tiger Woods, is also best friends with his ex-wife Elin Nordegren. Talk about an awkward situation!

It really does make a good deal of sense once you know the exact reasons for their unlikely friendship. An insider revealed that Elin originally wanted to get to know Lindsey because she knew the skier would be around her children a lot. The source said, “After meeting her, she found she actually liked her. You’d think it would be weird, but Elin loves Lindsey and they talk all the time. Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman.”

“Us Weekly” has more details:

The source adds that the whole group recently went on vacation together, and that the fellow blondes occasionally took off on their own to grab drinks together, while Woods stayed with the kids. “Lindsey is really good for Tiger. She’s strong, opinionated, and keeps him in line,” the source explains. “Elin found that they are very similar and have a lot in common. They laugh and talk like they have been girlfriends forever.”

Vonn and the golf pro went public with their romance back in March 2013, months after they were first linked. “We’re athletes, so I guess we have something in common there. We met at his charity event in Vegas, Tiger Jam, and, yeah, we were friends for a long time,” she told David Letterman in November of how their relationship evolved. “I don’t know…we just kind of relate really well to one another.”

That’s great that they all get along for the sake of the children. They’re all adults, so we can’t think of any good reason why they shouldn’t try to be pleasant with one another. Can you?

If you are juggling things like a job (or two), schooling, children, pets and other social obligations, then you might have a hard time finding the time to make an appointment to see a doctor. Most doctor’s offices have you waiting there for hours before you’re seen and you don’t even want to talk about the cost! Now, there’s American Well for all of your healthcare needs.

We can’t even begin to tell you how convenient this service was for us to use. With symptoms of a cold, our writer Scott called in to the service for a consultation. He relayed that the service itself was so easy to use, that he would definitely call again as opposed to leaving the house for a doctor’s visit in person. He said that the doctor was caring, listened to what he had to say and wanted followup after his care to ensure his well-being.

The entire process took approximately ten minutes to complete and signing in for the service was a breeze. If you want ease of use, a small price tag ($49!) and a diagnosis, then American Well is the right choice for you. The doctor selected answered all of Scott’s questions and it was safe and secure. He didn’t have to leave the house for trip to the doctor’s office — only to get stuck in a germ-filled waiting room. He completed his doctor’s call and was done in the span of ten minutes. It really is that simple and easy to use.
