Kim Kardashian flour-bombed
Last week on Thursday in West Hollywood, entertainer Kim Kardashian was drenched in flour by a young woman. The incident happened on the red carpet after Kardashian finished posing for photographers for her new fragrance, True Reflection. The flour-bomber went between Kardashian and her publicist, and began dumping the contents on the reality TV star. Reports indicated that the assailant did it for Kris Humphries, Kardashian’s ex. Kardashian played it off cool though, even making jokes about the incident after getting cleaned up. One of the possible jokes: “This isn’t the first time I’ve been covered in something white.”
Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera: Hoodie had role in death
Fox News has never been at the top of people’s go-to list for information. Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera is now part of that problem, as the TV personality made this opinion on “Fox and Friends” regarding the Trayvon Martin shooting: “I’ll bet you money that if he didn’t have that hoodie on, that nutty neighborhood watch guy wouldn’t have responded in that violent and aggressive way.” Of course, shit hit the fan soon after, with many individuals taking to Rivera’s Facebook page to criticize his opinion. This would not be the first time a Fox News commentator has flopped; Fox analyst Juan Williams was fired by National Public Radio in 2010 for saying that he gets nervous when he sees people on a plane with clothing that identifies them as Muslim. Way to go, Rivera; way to go.
“Survivor” star hopes to be next Indiana governor
First there was the Governator, now there may just be the Survivornator. Originally a part of the 2004 group of “Survivor,” Rupert Boneham now hopes to survive against competition to be Indiana’s next governor. After being nominated as a third-party choice Saturday, the former reality TV star is confident that he’ll succeed. “I really feel I have a strong chance of pulling not just the Libertarian vote, but the independent vote, the undecided vote, and maybe even some votes from Democrats and Republicans,” said Boneham in an interview with the Associated Press. Having been a Libertarian for more than 20 years, Boneham feels prepared for the job. Seriously though, maybe there should be a requirement for governorship: Only apply if you’ve ever been an actor. Would it lead the U.S. into ruin? Absolutely, but it’d be amusing to see.
