Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West on Friday. Divorce lawyer Laura Wasser filed the papers. TMZ reports Kardashian is seeking joint custody of their four children — North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm West, ages 7, 5, 3 and 1 — and both are abiding by a prenuptial agreement.  West proposed to Kardashian on Oct. 21, 2013 at AT&T Park in in San Francisco after dating since 2012. He hired a 50 piece orchestra and beamed the message “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” on the Jumbotron.  They married in May 2014 in a secret ceremony at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. In 2020, West announced his candidacy for President in the November election. In July, Kardashian addressed West’s bipolar diagnosis and asked for compassion as West expressed his thoughts publicly.

Marilyn Manson Under Investigation

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is investigating Marilyn Manson after abuse allegations were made against him.  Manson, born Brian Warner, is being investigated following allegations of abuse by his ex-fiancée, actress Evan Rachel Wood, and other women.  “The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Special Victims Bureau is investigating allegation(s) of domestic violence involving Mr. Brian Warner, also known as ‘Marilyn Manson,’ who works in the music industry,” the department said in a statement. “The incidents occurred between 2009 and 2011 when Mr. Warner lived in the city of West Hollywood.”  Wood accused Manson of abuse in an Instagram post Feb. 1, saying the singer “started grooming” her when she was a teenager and “horrifically abused” her for years. Wood, who met Manson when she was 18 and he was 36, was briefly engaged to the singer in 2010.  “I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives,” she said.  Manson subsequently denied the allegations in a statement on Instagram.
******In a statement, he said, “I have never done these things, and if you let me off the hook this time, I will never do them again!!”

Creepy David Letterman Clip Resurfaces

A resurfaced clip of David Letterman licking Jennifer Aniston’s hair has gone viral.  Letterman has been slammed after critics shared resurfaced clips of the longtime host conducting uncomfortable interviews with female stars, including Paris Hilton and Janet Jackson.  One segment receiving renewed attention is Letterman’s 1998 interview with Aniston, who was promoting “The Object of My Affection” at the time. During the interview, she shares a story with Letterman about once running into fans in a gym’s steam room. Letterman later moves his chair close to the actress and says, “Forgive me if this is rude. I just want to try one thing.”  He then gets close to her face and places strands of Aniston’s hair into his mouth and sucks on it before slowly pulling away. Aniston was laughing during the bizarre encounter, but was visibly in shock minutes later as she took a cloth to wipe her hair.  “I’m sorry,” Letterman tells her in the clip. “Something to do with the steam room!”  “That was something I’ll never forget,” Aniston responded.  “Watching these david letterman interviews makes me cringe #Jenniferaniston,” one Twitter user wrote.  “This jennifer aniston interview on David Letterman in 1998 is still disgusting to watch,” another agreed.  Another person defended Aniston, writing, “This horrific. We need to keep remembering this stuff happened and still does in people’s everyday lives.”  “I had no clue he was so gross,” another reacted.  See the clip HERE.
********Joe Biden tweeted: “What’s wrong with that???” #DavidLetterman #SameAsMe
*****C’mon man, it doesn’t pass the “sniff test!!”

Shawn King Wants To Administer Larry’s Estate

Larry King’s estranged widow Shawn King has reportedly filed docs requesting to be appointed administrator of her late husband’s estate, according to “Entertainment Tonight.”  Her original lawsuit also contested King’s son Larry King Jr.’s appointment to the position.  In her new request, Shawn reportedly included a copy of a previous will of King’s dated July 7, 2015, which nominates Shawn to be the executor of his estate.  A hearing is scheduled for next Wednesday.  Additionally, the docs claim that King’s estate is not worth $2 million as King Jr. estimated, but only $350,000, per the outlet.  Reps for King Jr. told Fox News that while they were aware of the latest petition, they had yet to see it.  “We do not intend to litigate this matter publically in the press. That said, we are aware of the unsupported allegations and innuendo in the Objections filed to the Petition for Probate,” the reps said in a written statement. In her initial lawsuit, Shawn claimed that King had an alleged “secret account” through which, he “would make gifts to various individuals from community property,” without Shawn’s knowledge.
*******What can we tell ya?? Larry DID have a shady side!!!

British People Won’t Watch Harry and Meghan’s Oprah Interview

More than half of all Brits polled by The Sun say they’d change the channel rather than watch Oprah’s upcoming interview with Harry and Meghan.  The big television interview is set for early next month.  But a significant number of Brits say the hotly anticipated sitdown is actually a huge turn off.  And Megxit only made matters worse, with a third of those asked saying their feelings on the pair have gone downhill since they left the United Kingdom, and 43 percent wanting the two to make their split with the royal family permanent.  Just 27 percent of those surveyed said they want to watch Oprah’s sit down with Harry and Meghan.
********That’s because the Brits are loyal to their country!! Harry should think about that!!
WHAT DO YOU THINK?? Will the Queen be watching??
*******We know that Oprah will make Harry cry!! But… what will be the trigger???
******The Queen is putting on the pressure!!! She’s got Stedman in the Tower!!!

William Is Angry With Harry Again

Sources close to Prince William claim the royal is currently “really sad and genuinely shocked” by brother Prince Harry’s choice to be “insulting and disrespectful” toward grandmother Queen Elizabeth.  The Times report indicates The Duke of Cambridge was “very upset” by Harry and wife, Meghan Markle’s reply to Queen Elizabeth’s announcement that they would officially stepping down from their royal duties. One source close to the family called the move “petulant and insulting to the Queen,” adding, “Don’t disrespect your granny, Harry.”  Another source agreed, saying, “You don’t answer the Queen back — it’s just not done.”  Other family members were also reportedly “stunned” by the tone of Harry and Meghan’s reply, which directly addressed the Queen’s claim that the pair can no longer be of public service.  “Once he got over the anger of how things happened, he was left with the absence of his brother,” said an aide. “They had shared everything about their lives — an office, a foundation, meetings together most days — and there was a lot of fun along the way. He’ll miss it forever.”
********One simply doesn’t give the Queen any “Royal Backchat!!!”
*******The interview will air on the new “Attention Whore Channel!!!”
*****We’re pretty sure that right now, Meghan thinks she’s bigger than the Queen!!!

Mr. Big and Others Not Returning For Sex Reboot

Chris Noth will not reprise his role as the iconic Mr. Big in the “Sex and the City” reboot.  Also, David Eigenberg, who played Miranda Hobbes’ love interest, Steve Brady, won’t be returning either, but a rep says that the actor is in negotiations to appear in the series.  Big, of course, was the love interest to Sarah Jessica Parker’s character, Carrie Bradshaw, over the course of the hit show’s six seasons, and the pair were married — after one dashed wedding attempt — in the first movie, from 2008.  In 2010’s sequel, the pair struggled with married life, but by the end, decided to try to make their marriage work.  But it looks like he’ll be out of her life once more when the new HBO Max series picks up her story. Kim Cattrall, who portrayed Samantha Jones, is also not returning after years of soured relations with Parker.
********The fans are trashing Chris Noth, saying he’s “too fat” to come back!!
******It could be because he’s regular in Queen Latifah’s new show!!!

Man Having Only Beer For Lent

An Ohio man is marking the Christian tradition of Lent by giving up solid foods for 46 days and getting the majority of his sustenance from beer.  Del Hall of Cincinnati said his Lent diet includes only beer, water, black coffee and herbal tea, and as of his Friday morning weigh-in — day 3 of his diet — he was down 5.8 pounds.  “I only have three to five beers a day,” Hall told WXIX-TV. “It’s not like I’m drinking constantly. If you eat your standard diet, it gets boring. You don’t eat the same thing every day. So, I am definitely not going to drink the same thing every day.” Hall said he successfully completed Lent beer diets in 2019 and 2020, each time noticing health benefits of the experience. He said he lost 40-50 pounds both years and noticed his blood pressure and cholesterol improved.  “The human body is an amazing thing,” Hall said. “We’re used to going through as hunter-gatherers, feast and famine. The problem is we don’t go through the famine anymore.”

Hotel Features See-Thru Sauna

A luxury hotel in South Korea is apologizing after guests discovered that an issue with the mirrored windows allowed outside observers to see into the women’s sauna area.  The Grand Josun, a recently-opened five-star resort on the island of Jeju, said the mirrored windows in the sauna area are designed to prevent anyone outside the property from seeing in during the day, and blinds are supposed to come down at dusk, when the mirrored effect no longer works.  Guests complained online recently that they discovered the sauna area was sometimes visible from outside the building. They said they could see the sauna, bathroom and showers through the windows.  The hotel apologized and said the sauna has been temporarily closed while officials investigate the malfunction with the mirrored windows and blinds.  “We’re deeply sorry for causing any inconveniences to our customers in using some facilities at the women’s sauna at the Grand Josun Jeju Hill suite for missing mirror coating for some windows and [problems in] operating the blinds,” the hotel said in a statement on its website. “The sauna’s operation has been suspended and we’re closely checking deficiencies and taking immediate action to correct them.”

House On A Boat For Sale

A home for sale in Massachusetts is gaining attention online because of its unusual location: It’s on a boat, but it’s “not a houseboat.”  The home, listed online for $275,000, formerly was known as the Governor Herrick, a dredge for the Cape Cod Canal in the early 1900s.  The vessel, now named Tapestry, was converted in the mid-1990s by a man who built a home on top of the boat.  The 1,800-square-foot house, which has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, is parked at the Fairhaven Shipyard, but the location is not permanent.  “The person who lives in it currently works at the shipyard, so he was able to keep it there. But a future buyer will have to move it. It’s not going to be able to stay at the shipyard,” listing agent Jan MacGregor told  The listing states the barge can be transported to another marina, or the home can be removed from the barge to a plot of land if the buyer finds a suitable spot.

********Most houseboats are “for sail!!!”

20 Most Common Passwords Found On The Dark Web

Huffington Post

Based on the top 250 passwords they discovered on the dark web, ID Agent said the most common categories used to generate those passwords include sequential strings of numbers, names, sports references, famous people or characters, and more.

Fifty-nine percent of Americans use a person’s name or birthday in their passwords, while 33% include a pet’s name and 22% use their own name, the company said. The average user also reused their bad password 14 times.


Here’s a look at the top 20 passwords found on the dark web in 2020:

  1. 123456
  2. password
  3. 12345678
  4. 12341234
  5. 1asdasdasdasd
  6. Qwerty123
  7. Password1
  8. 123456789
  9. Qwerty1
  10. :12345678secret
  11. Abc123
  12. 111111
  13. stratfor
  14. lemonfish
  15. sunshine
  16. 123123123
  17. 1234567890
  18. Password123
  19. 123123
  20. 1234567



How To Avoid Having Your Password Hacked

Worried your password is too similar to some of those mentioned above? In order to protect yourself against identity theft, data breaches and other fraud, it’s crucial to create passwords that can’t be guessed by cybercriminals. Here are a few ways to do that.


Don’t use names.

It might seem a bit obvious, but putting your name ― or the name of a close family member ― in your password makes it much easier for hackers to guess. In fact, at least 92 of the top 250 most common passwords found by ID Agent were first names or variations of first names. Instead, come up with a nonsensical phrase that only you would know.


Mix up your numbers.

Notice how many of the top passwords found on the dark web were some variation of “123?” Thirty-five of the top 250 most common passwords, including 12 of the top 20, contained sequential numbers. Don’t make it that easy for hackers. “Individuals should create passwords that include a combination of numbers, symbols, uppercase and lowercase letters that are non-sequential,” Puglia said.


Create a unique password for every account.

If you reuse the same password for every account, you make it that much easier for criminals to hit the jackpot if they figure out what it is. According to Puglia, about 39% of people say most of their passwords across both their work and home applications are identical. If you can’t think of that many unique passwords, password generators can help with that. Google Chrome has the function built in, or you can try tools such as or LastPass.


Use a password manager.

Puglia said that the average U.S. adult has between 90 and 135 different applications that require a set of credentials. Clearly, no one could memorize that many. “The best way to keep track of numerous passwords is to use a secure password manager,” he said. These tools prevent you from storing passwords on your phone or tablet, a common habit that makes it easier for cybercriminals to get their hands on your credentials. Some options include LastPass, Keeper Security or 1Password.
