Does Kim Kardashian Want More Kids?

Kim Kardashian and her siblings were asked in an interview with Access about whom they believed would have six children, like their mother Kris Jenner.  All the Kardashian sisters held up a picture of Kourtney Kardashian with Kim being the exception. Kim held up a picture of herself and her sister, Kourtney.   “You guys didn’t get me?” she said to her family.  Kim shares her four children: North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2, with her estranged husband, Kanye West.   Kim was officially declared single by a judge in February 2021 and has been dating Pete Davidson. Pete has shared in the past that he is open to having children in his future.   In February 2020, Davidson shared with Charlamagne Tha God that one day becoming a father would be an “awesome” experience.  “I want to be there for something or do something that I didn’t have growing up. That’s my biggest thing,” he shared to the rapper. “I just want to have a kid, that’s it. … [They] would keep me around, keep my head up.”

Alec Baldwin Explains His Large Family

Alec Baldwin finally clarified why he and wife Hilaria Baldwin keep on popping out kids: because they love it.  He posted a video to Instagram Thursday of his daughter María Lucía cooing and showing off her two front teeth that came in, writing, “People ask why. This is why. Being a parent is the ultimate journey.”  The Baldwins shocked fans and followers last month when Hilaria, who was born in Boston with the name Hillary, announced she is pregnant with their seventh child together.  They are already parents to daughters Carmen, 8, and María Lucía, 1, and sons Rafael, 6, Leonardo, 5, Romeo, 3, and Eduardo “Edu,” 1.  He is also dad to 26-year-old daughter Ireland Baldwin, whom he shares with ex-wife Kim Basinger, so he has been on the “journey” for quite some time.

Ben Affleck’s Dad Didn’t Know About Engagement

Ben Affleck’s father, Timothy Affleck, revealed he had no idea that his son had asked Jennifer Lopez for her hand in marriage again.  “I haven’t talked to them in ages, but if everything one reads on the internet is true, they’re having a good time together,” He told The US Sun in an interview published Wednesday.  “He’s quite busy with all of his newfound activities. He’s been working a lot, which no one seems to care about. They care about romance.”  When asked whether he approves of the pair getting married, Timothy told the outlet, “That’s fine by me! I’m happy about it.”  Timothy expressed that he believes they will be able to make things work this time around, unlike in the early 2000s when they called off their first engagement.  “I don’t know anything about wedding plans or anything like that. But I don’t imagine there will be a repeat of the last wedding arrangements,” he said. “The last time the media went berserk. They just went crazy, and I’m sure that had an effect; it would have an effect on anyone, really. But I imagine they can handle it more now, I hope so. Ben’s getting up there; he’s pushing 50.”  While the actor and his dad are not close, Timothy shared that he recently saw Ben’s three children, Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, whom he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
*****Oh? He wasn’t there for J Lo’s bubble bath??
*****Between his gambling, drinking, and starting and ending relationships, Ben doesn’t have a lot of free time!!
*******His dad’s wedding gift will be addressed “to whom it may concern!!”

Social Media Goes After Pat Sajak

Social media users are collectively rolling their eyes and groaning at “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak’s latest blunder.  Wednesday’s episode featured Sajak asking Vanna White a shocking question that made fans sigh behind their computer screens.  Contestant Ashley Fabian is a professional opera singer and scored $67,410 throughout the regular play round and bonus puzzle. But she seemingly got caught in the crossfire of a weird conversation between Sajak and White.  “Are you an opera buff at all?” Sajak asked, to which White responded, “Yes. I’m not a buff, but I like opera.”  That’s when things got nakedly bizarre.  “Have you ever watched opera in the buff?” Sajak then wondered. “I’m just curious.”  White responded with a firm “No,” and seemed to laugh it off.  But eyebrows were raised and fingers were click-clacking as the strange moment unfolded.  “I feel like I just witnessed a #metoo moment on @WheelofFortune?” one user tweeted.  “Did Pat Sajak just ask Vanna White if she watches the opera naked? #WhatInTheWhatNow? #WheelofFortune #TheWheel,” asked another show-watcher.  Still another chimed in: “@WheelofFortune someone please replace this man. @patsajak is absolutely inappropriate asking @TheVannaWhite if she’s watched opera naked? Are you serious? Gross.”  See the video HERE.
***********Lighten up!! Maybe Pat knows something YOU don’t know!!

Quail Highway

Drivers on a Georgia highway encountered an unusual traffic hazard Wednesday when 22 crates filled with live quail apparently fell from the back of a truck.  The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post that deputies responded to reports of a traffic obstruction Wednesday morning at the intersection of Highway 24 East and Highway 231 in Davisboro.  The deputies arrived to find 22 crates of live quail spread across the road. Some of the birds had escaped from the crates, leading deputies and bystanders on a brief chase.  The sheriff’s office said it was able to contact the owner of the birds and they were loaded onto a vehicle “to continue their journey.”
*********The quail didn’t know what to do, so they were winging it!!!
******They almost wound up at the “Roadkill Cafe!!

TV Theme Helps Find Lost Bird

A Pennsylvania family’s pet cockatiel was identified after three years on the loose thanks to the bird’s love for a classic TV theme song.  Louise Duncan said she knew the bird she found on the front porch of Christ United Methodist Church in Lancaster County was not a native species.  “I knew it was not a normal bird that comes by because it had an orange or yellow plume,” Duncan told WGAL-TV.  Duncan and Pastor Roseann Goldberg-Taylor wrangled the bird into a box and contacted local animal rescue group ORCA.  ORCA posted photos of the bird on Facebook, and soon received a message from a family in Ephrata who reported their cockatiel, named Lucky, had escaped from their home three years earlier.  Libby Rannels of ORCA said rescue workers and the family compared the bird to photos of Lucky and were pretty sure of the bird’s identity, but a family member suggested another test: seeing if the cockatiel would react to the theme song from The Andy Griffith Show.  “He started whistling that song, and the bird started dancing, kind of bobbing his head, so we knew then that it had to be the same bird,” Rannels said.  See the video HERE.
**********And YOU call ’em “bird brains!!”

Dog Steals Chicken During Morning Show

A British morning show’s interview with a woman who claims to be able to psychically communicate with animals was interrupted when the woman’s dog ran off to raid food intended for a cooking segment.  Vernon Kay and Josie Gibson, the temporary hosts of ITV’s This Morning while regular team Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield are on vacation, brought Beth Lee-Crowther on the show Wednesday morning to talk about her purported ability to communicate telepathically with animals.  The segment was interrupted when Lee-Crowther’s dog, Misty, dashed away from the couch and went wandering around the studio.  The cameras caught the moment Misty found her way to the set’s kitchen and raided a chicken dish intended for a cooking segment later in the show. The footage shows stage hands taking the dish away from the dog and attempting to herd Misty back to the couch.  “What do you think Misty is thinking right now because she’s actually done a runner,” Gibson asks Lee-Crowther in the clip.  See the video HERE.
********If she’s psychic, why didn’t she see THAT coming???
******We always knew what our dog was thinking!! One of three things: “Must sniff butts,” “I gotta poop,” or “What’s for lunch?”
*******Every smart hosts knows: never work with kids or animals!!!

Man Uses Stolen Credit Cards To Buy Guitars

Volusia County deputies are looking for a man accused of using a 78-year-old woman’s credit card to purchase around $17,000 worth of items, including 11 guitars.  Deputies said 49-year-old Mystery Shiloh Demarest was given access to the elderly victim’s bank card after she allowed the suspect to move into her home to help her as she cared for her sick husband.  Demarest is wanted on charges of grand theft and fraudulent use of a credit card dating back to May 2019, when he initially moved in with the victim to help her with chores and household shopping, according to investigators.  “Days after (the victim) first gave Demarest her bank card to use at Publix, large packages started showing up at the house with Demarest’s name on them,” the sheriff’s office said.  According to investigators, Demarest told the victim his girlfriend was responsible for the purchased packages and promised her he would return everything for a refund.  The victim then lost contact with Demarest, and upon checking her bank records, found 11 unrefunded charges at GuitarAttic and, a plane ticket charge, a hotel room charge and a $318 DeLand Extra Space Storage charge, deputies said.  Detectives said they obtained a search warrant and found 11 Gibson Les Paul guitars, two Marshall reverb boards, seven large speakers, a drum set and several music stands inside the storage unit.

“David” Has Replaced “Karen” As Worst Complainer In 2022

Move over, Karen. There’s a new annoying complainer on the block in 2022.

Karens have gotten a bad reputation over the past couple of years. It only takes one rotten egg to give them all a bad name, and I think that was the case with “Karen”. Even if your name isn’t Karen, you could still be identified as a Karen…which isn’t something that you want to have tied to your character.

However, in 2022, there is a new “Karen” that has taken over, and it’s a man! David has become the new Karen now. I know, this might take a while to get used to. According to new research from both TripAdvisor and Trustpilot, the most common name of online complaints in the past year was “David”. Here’s the kicker, “Karen” didn’t even make the top ten. Nice work, Karen, on being a little more reasonable in 2022.

Top Ten Names For Complainers Online

So, we already have established that “David” is the king of complaining in 2022, but what are some of the other names associated with complainers online? According to the New York Post, the majority of these names are mens’ names.  In fact, the article says


Check out the top ten names of internet complainers below:

  1. David
  2. Paul
  3. John
  4. Mark
  5. Chris
  6. James
  7. Michael
  8. Andrew
  9. Peter
  10. Sarah

While Karen has stepped up her game, she’s still not in the clear yet. Karen is the second-worst female for online complaints. But hey, it’s progress. Now, we just have to keep an eye out for David!
