Pam Anderson Telling Her Story To Netflix

Pamela Anderson will tell her story in a documentary coming to Netflix.  “I can only surprise you — not a victim, but a survivor and alive to tell the real story,” she said in a lipstick stained note attached to a Netflix announcement of the documentary on Twitter.  Along with acting and modeling, Anderson has been involved in activism as a spokesperson for MAC Cosmetics HIV/AIDS awareness campaign, and later admonished the same cosmetics company for testing on animals as an activist for animal rights.  She has also been critical of pornography, speaking about danger of porn addiction in a 2016 Wall Street Journal op-ed.  The documentary film will provide “an intimate portrait,” of her life “as she looks back at her professional path and prepares for next steps on her journey,” a Netflix statement said.  Director Ryan White (The Keepers, Ask Dr. Ruth) will direct and produce the film, and other producers include executive producer Josh Braun, and producers Jessica Hargrave, Julia Nottingham, Brandon Thomas Lee.
*********It’s a lot of producers to produce HER!!
*******Pamela complaining about porn is like Walter White complaining that there’s “too much meth addiction!!”
*****We’re not addicted, but we DO watch that video of her and Tommy Lee at least once a week!!

Jennifer Hudson Getting Her Own Talk Show

The Jennifer Hudson Show is coming to Fox Television Stations this year.  Warner Bros. said in a press release Wednesday that the one-hour talk show will launch in fall of 2022.  “I have experienced so much in my life; I’ve seen the highest of the highs, the lowest of the lows, and just about everything in between but as my mother always told me, ‘Once you think you’ve seen it all, just keep on living,'” Hudson said in a statement.  “People from around the world have been a part of my journey from the beginning — twenty years ago — and I’m so ready to join their journey as we sit down and talk about the things that inspire and move us all,” she added. “I have always loved people and I cannot wait to connect on a deeper level and let audiences see the different sides of who I am, the human being, in return.”  Warner Bros. unscripted television president Mike Darnell said he’s “thrilled” to be working with Hudson on the show.  “I knew that Jennifer was a force to be reckoned with from the moment I met her nearly 20 years ago,” Darnell said. “From her Grammy-winning career in music, to her Oscar-winning acting career, Jennifer’s amazing talent, big heart and authenticity shine through in everything she does.”  The Jennifer Hudson Show is produced by Warner Bros. unscripted television in association with Telepictures.
*****Finally!! A daytime talk show!! We wondered when someone would think of that!!
*******This means the movie career has stalled out!!!

Queen Camilla Was Always Gonna Happen

Queen Elizabeth offered her support to have Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, become queen, and everyone is on board.  Amid her Platinum Jubilee, which marks the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne, the reigning British monarch expressed her “sincere” wish that Camilla be known as “queen consort” when her eldest son, Prince Charles, is expected to succeed her to the throne.  Kerene Barefield, an executive producer for True Royalty TV, says that those within the palace support the 95-year-old’s message and have already welcomed the duchess with open arms.  “They all believe it’s the right thing,” Barefield explained. “Camilla has done a lot of good for the royal family. She’s always been there for Prince Charles. And I’m being told that everyone believes this is the right decision.  “[Royal author] Angela Levin, who is currently writing a book about Camilla, told us that this decision was actually made five years ago between the queen and Prince Charles,” Barefield added. “It’s only recently, in February, that it was announced to the public.”  In giving her blessing, the popular and respected sovereign is placing significant heft behind the move.
********The Queen was hoping Camilla might kick the bucket before she had to announce it!!
*******Her title will be “Horseface of Cornhole, the Queen Con-sort.. of!!”
*****Charles is fortunate.. Harry being such a whiny, whipped traitor has made his father look better!!!

Joy Behar Bites The Dust On The View

Joy Behar hit the ground hard on Thursday’s episode of “The View.”  She was walking out on stage at the start of the live show when she took a tumble just before reaching her seat.  Cameras captured Behar face-planting on the stage.  Co-hosts Sara Haines and Sunny Hostin were heard gasping before they tried to help Behar get up from the ground.  Whoopi Goldberg also rushed over to tend to her.  Behar needed the help of Haines and Hostin to get back on her feet, and a production assistant also ran on stage for added support.  Behar did not suffer serious injury, and was able to continue on with the show.  “25 years, that has never happened — who do I sue?!” she quipped as she sat down at the table.  She turned serious, telling anyone who suffers a fall to monitor their symptoms.  “The main thing — just to talk seriously — when Bob Saget fell, he died,” Behar said. “If you hit your head, and you feel dizzy or you have blurred vision, or you feel like you want to go to sleep, go to the doctor. Because that will kill you.”  She ended on a light note, stating: “I’m a klutz!”  See the video HERE.
*******The most disappointing part.. is that she got up!!
*******If she hit her head, she might start making sense!!
******The crew needed a crane to lift her into her seat!!
****We’re not laughing. Are YOU luaghing?

80’s Stars Recreate Classic Videos

New Kids on the Block are going back on tour, with Rick Astley, En Vogue and Salt-N-Pepa to complete the bill.  To promote the summer concerts, they created some ’80s nostalgia and released “Bring Back the Time,” complete with a music video on Thursday featuring the entire ensemble of groups on the Mixtape Tour.  Donnie Wahlberg of New Kids on the Block co-wrote and co-produced the new track, which pays homage to the ’80s when the band was at their prime.  The song serves as an opportunity to re-create the most iconic scenes from a collection of MTV videos, including “Whip It,” “Rebel Yell,” “Addicted to Love,” “Vogue,” “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and more.  The music video for the song, which is about “bringing back” the good ol’ days, shows the singers in 2022 donning flowerpots and Twisted Sister wigs, rocking the ‘fits they would have fashioned for themselves back in their day.  The Mixtape Tour begins May 10 in Cincinnati and is slated to play dozens of venues around the country before ending in Washington, DC, on July 23.  See the video HERE.
*********That’s cool. We’ll just listen to our mixtape!!
********It IS time for 90s nostalgia!!!

Robert Pattinson’s Tricks To Shirtless Batman

Robert Pattinson was meticulously “counting sips of water” to prepare for his stripped-down scenes in The Batman.  He undertook “months” of physical preparation for the role.  “I had about three months before the movie started, and then you’re working out before and after work all the time,” he told People on “The Batman” premiere red carpet Tuesday night. “You just cut down and cut down and cut down before the couple of scenes with your shirt off, and you’re counting sips of water.”  Going shirtless in the movie, he said, was motivation to look his best.  “Shame is my biggest motivator, 100%,” he joked.
********His body is fine. His acting? Not so much!!!

Old Roll Of Film Found In Thrift Store

A New Hampshire woman is trying to solve a photographic mystery after a camera she bought from a thrift store turned out to have a roll of exposed film inside.  Sarah Nolan said she bought a camera from a Littleton, N.H., thrift store in September 2019. Nolan had the film developed and found snapshots of what appears to be a family on vacation.  A boat seen in one of the photos appears to have been registered in Wyoming, but there were no other clear clues about when and where the pictures come from.  Nolan said she hopes someone will recognize the people in the photos so she can return them to the family.  See the video HERE.
********Maybe the family doesn’t WANT to be found!!
******With all the weirdos out there, do you REALLY want to make contact with a stranger??

Florida Pig Chase!

A pair of pigs escaped from their backyard pen in Florida, leading police and neighbors on an hours-long chase through the neighborhood.  Residents said the pigs escaped Tuesday morning in Lehigh Acres, and the porcine fugitives were on the loose for more than 12 hours.  Lee County Sheriff’s Office deputies, neighbors and Randy Love, a cousin of the animals’ owner, chased the pigs around the neighborhood into Tuesday evening.  Love and a deputy managed to capture one of the pigs as the sun was setting.  “I was about to give up. Then that pig got a little slower, and I just went for it and grabbed him,” Love told WBBH-TV.  The second pig remained on the loose, but Love said he was confident it would be captured safely.
*******They just loved the attention!! What a couple of hams!!
*********What’s the difference between Hunter Biden and a pig? A pig won’t stay up all night to have sex with Hunter Biden!!

Speeding Florida Man Blames Putin!!

A man tried to place blame on Russian President Vladimir Putin for why he was caught speeding by a Flagler County deputy.  On Tuesday, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office released body cam footage of the recent traffic stop.  The man, who was not identified in the video, was pulled over by a Flagler County deputy in Palm Coast on Thursday, Feb. 24 around 4:10 p.m. for speeding.  The deputy said he clocked the driver going 50 mph in a 30 mph zone and said he saw the driver run a stop sign.  The man gave several excuses to the deputy, saying he had just gotten the car he was driving and that he had been trying to get the car “out of sport mode.” He also said he sped up to try and get ahead of another driver.  Finally, the driver decided to “tell the truth” and revealed his real reason for speeding.  See the video HERE.
*******DAMN that Putin!! Stop with all the neucular thermal weapons!
TOPIC: Best excuse you’ve used to get out of a ticket!!

Woman Had Enough Drugs To Kill Small Town

A Florida woman was arrested Tuesday for trafficking enough fentanyl to kill more than 26,000 people, according to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.  Deputies said 53.2 grams of fentanyl was found in 32-year-old Stephanie Tompkins’ home after investigators executed a search warrant.  In addition to the fentanyl, narcotics detectives reportedly found:

  • Methamphetamine – 104.2 grams
  • Cocaine – 48.2 grams
  • Marijuana oil – 24.8 grams
  • Adderall – 18.2 grams
  • Xanax – 4.7 grams

To put that into perspective, the City of Naples has a year-round population of around 22,000 people.  “Fentanyl is a powerful opioid that is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine and 30 to 50 times more potent than heroin, and a dose as small as a quarter of a milligram can be fatal,” the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post.
*****She’s an overachiever!!
****We’re sure that NONE of those drugs came across the southern border!! Right??







16 Things You Should Automate Right Now To Instantly Feel Less Stressed



  1. Your coffee supply

The last thing anyone needs is to wake up and find they’re out of coffee because grabbing a new bag of beans slipped their mind at the grocery store.

Lots of coffee brands have automated subscription services so you can “set it and forget it” and let your coffee come to you at regular intervals, ensuring you never, ever run out. Check out companies like Korean American woman-owned Bean & Bean or these Black-owned coffee brands, most of which offer subscription plans.


  1. Your umbrella

Anna Dearmon Kornick, a time management coach and host of the “It’s About Time” podcast, said her favorite automation is the weather forecaster that she set up through the site

“Every time rain or thunderstorms are forecasted in my area, IFTTT automatically adds an event to my calendar on that day,” she told HuffPost. “At a glance, I know whether I need to grab an umbrella before I head out the door. It’s so simple, but it can make a huge difference!”


  1. Crucial toiletries

Avoid last-minute pharmacy runs by putting toilet paper, tampons and other regularly needed toiletry essentials on an automated subscription service. Just about any toiletry can be subscribed to at a major e-commerce retailer like Amazon, but there are also companies that offer plans for specific items.

For tampons and pads, there’s Lola. Athena Club has razor kits, shaving cream and body washes you can send to yourself on a subscription basis, in addition to liners, pads and tampons. For toilet paper roll subscriptions with plastic-free packaging, try Who Gives a Crap and Tushy.


  1. Your savings

Alan Henry, service editor at Wired magazine and author of the upcoming book “Seen, Heard, and Paid: The New Work Rules for the Marginalized,” recommends automating different percentages of your paycheck to be deposited into different accounts.

With direct deposit, most of just choose to have our entire paycheck put in our primary checking account, “but automating your finances helps you get ahead of the process and actually pay yourself first,” he said.

Once you know what your budget is, keep a checking account that exists just to pay expenses like rent or a mortgage, groceries and Netflix, Henry explained. Then split the remaining money to be direct-deposited into your savings account and/or retirement accounts. Henry even makes a separate account with its own card just for fun money purchases.

“It’s set-it-and-forget-it,” Henry said. “Unless your income ever changes significantly, you’ll be able to trust that your bills are paid, you’re saving money for an emergency, like medical bills or an accident, you’re also saving for retirement or your future, and you can swipe your spending card freely knowing all the money in that account is yours to play with however you like.”


  1. Your bills

After you set up a direct deposit of a portion of your check to a savings account, set up auto-pay for regular charges like cable, rent and utilities. While this might seem like a recipe for disaster, most vendors will send an email letting you know what each month’s charge will be, so you have time to address anything that seems unusually high or incorrect.

“Deposit enough from your paycheck into [your expenses] account, and set those expenses to automatically pay your bills from that account, preferably on a timetable that works for you so you know when it’s all coming out,” he said.


  1. Your to-do list

“I set recurring weekly and monthly administrative to-dos in my favorite productivity app,” which is Todoist, said productivity consultant Rashelle Isip.

“I do this for both business and personal items,” Isip explained. “This saves me time and energy, as I don’t have to repeatedly think about what must be done. I simply open the app and get to work.”


  1. Your inbox

If you’re barraged by dozens of emails on a regular basis, set up filters for your inbox. For example, maybe you want every message from your boss or mom to get flagged red for immediate visibility.

You can make it so that certain emails are labeled in a color you select, or are marked as important or not, or are automatically sent to trash or spam. That way, checking your email takes just a few clicks instead of a long scroll that requires concentration.

In Gmail settings, you can choose to create new labels and corresponding filters, or simply create new filters to have your mail automatically sorted. Then you can choose what actions you want to take with these emails.  In Outlook, go to the Home button, click the Rules button and then select the Create rule option, through which you can assign tasks to emails under certain conditions.

Similarly, for Yahoo mail, you can click Settings and then More Settings, then select the Filters option. From there, you can add a new filter for your email folders.


  1. Prescriptions

Automatic deliveries for medications can be a time saver. Many major pharmacy chains, including Walgreens and CVS, have options to set certain prescriptions to auto-refill with home delivery.

For people on multiple medications, PillPack does automatic refills and can helpfully organize your pills into a single-serve pack labeled with the times you need to take them.


  1. Medication doses

Missing or taking an incorrect dose of medication has serious consequences. Automating your or a loved one’s medication can be a big help.

Automatic medication dispensers come with an array of features to prevent tampering and offer caregiver features, too. Hero, which comes with a smartphone app, alerts the phones of both users and caregivers if doses are missed, for example.

To see which dispenser might be right for you, check out an in-depth recommendation list compiled by a senior care product writer at The Senior List.


  1. Pet food

If you are constantly distracted during the day, putting pet essentials like food, treats and toys on a consistent delivery can be a relief for your busy brain (and ensures your furry loved one will never go without).

Chewy, Petco, and PetSmart offer automatic shipment options for commercial pet foods and supplies. For dogs that need customized food, The Farmer’s Dog, Nom Nom, Ollie and PetPlate are some of the most well-known specialty food subscription services.

Cat Person is a subscription food service for cats with high-protein needs. People with cats who like freshly cooked wet food or freeze-dried raw food can check out Smalls. For cats with raw food needs, Bobcat Raw Food and Darwin’s Natural Pet Products have subscription options.


  1. Pet toys and treats

If you have a pet that gets bored easily, a pet toy subscription service can help keep them entertained while you are busy. Subscriptions can be especially helpful for those whose chew-happy pets ensure toys never last very long.

BarkBox, for example, sends dog owners a monthly selection of themed toys and treats for furry companions to chew and chase after, while Meowbox sends curated monthly toys and treats to cat owners. And if you are an avid fan of cats, CatLadyBox sends feline-related shirts, jewelry and home decor alongside cat toys in its subscription.


  1. Commonly sent emails

If you find yourself writing the same email over and over again, having a go-to email template can be a big time-saver. Gmail and Outlook, for example, both have email template features where you can draft and save templates for different email scenarios, like “Following Up.”


  1. Uninterrupted focus time

When we get interrupted while working, it can take an average of 23 minutes to get back on track, according to research from the University of California, Irvine. Deter these interruptions by using calendar assistants like Clockwise, which integrate with tools including Slack and Asana to minimize distractions and let colleagues know you are unavailable.

Clockwise’s Focus Time feature, for example, can find two-hour chunks of time in your weekly calendar for deep-focus work and prevent colleagues from booking meetings on a shared calendar during those hours.


  1. Spelling

Avoid easy spelling errors with browser extensions that proofread your writing for you. Grammarly for Windows or Mac will offer spelling suggestions across apps, documents and emails.


  1. Your mail

Never wonder about what is coming in the mail and when by automating a daily heads-up through the U.S. Postal Service’s Informed Delivery program.

Once you create a account and sign up for Informed Delivery service, the agency will send you an email each morning with a digital preview the mail it will deliver to you later in the day. It will also tell you what packages are coming so you can track and reschedule them.

When you know there’s only going to be junk mail, you can skip a stop at the mailbox and do literally anything else with your time.


  1. Meeting notes

Instead of taking notes by hand for a meeting, you can automate this horrible chore with the note-taking tool Otter Assistant. With the permission of attendees, it can transcribe video meetings for Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Google Meet.
