Meghan Markle Got Rejected By Soccer Star

Meghan Markle was reportedly on the hunt for a British beau long before meeting hubby, Prince Harry.  Markle’s old friend, English radio personality Lizzie Cundy, claims she attempted to set her up with UK soccer star Ashley Cole, back in 2013.  Apparently, the athlete-turned-sports commentator wasn’t interested.  “Meghan said she loved London, and would love an English boyfriend, so I went through my phone to see who I knew that might be a good fit,” Cundy told Grazia.  “I tried to find her a boyfriend – Ashley Cole wasn’t so keen – but I did try to fix her up, which is funny looking back.”  Despite Cole’s disinterest, Cundy admits that she can see why Harry would become smitten with her, whom she met at a party in 2013.  “She was a real girl’s girl: full of energy,” Cundy said. “She didn’t stop talking, and we had a big giggle. There was just something special about her. We just got on, and immediately swapped numbers. I looked at her and thought ‘you have something special.’ She makes you feel at home straight away and it felt like I’d known her all my life. I can see why Harry fell in love with her.”
********There’s a name for a person like that. Let’s see… oh, yeah!! AN ACTRESS!!!
******Good thing Ashley wasn’t interested in her!! She would have dumped him for the Prince!!
******Harry had the three traits every Hollywood hustler looks for: weak, needy and famous!!!

Kim Jong Un Bans K-Pop

Kim Jong Un is imposing harsher penalties on citizens caught listening to “perverse” K-pop music.  The secretive anti-K-pop campaign came to light through internal documents smuggled out of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) by the Seoul-based news source Daily NK, the New York Times first reported Friday. These were then made public by South Korean legislators. The newly slimmed-down DPRK despot had dubbed the southern cultural imports a “vicious cancer” corrupting North Korean youths’ “attire, hairstyles, speeches, behaviors” à la the dancing in the ’80s movie “Footloose” — but with a much darker bent.  In an apparent bid to launch his own brand of cancel culture, Kim introduced new laws in December stipulating that anyone caught watching or possessing South Korean content could be sentenced to up to 15 years of hard labor. The previous maximum punishment for fans of popular acts such as BTS was five years.  If that wasn’t harsh enough, K-pop smugglers could even face execution while those caught singing, speaking or writing in a “South Korean style” could be sentenced to two years at a work camp, per the smuggled documents.  This past May, a citizen was killed via firing squad for hawking bootleg South Korean music and other entertainment.
*******He’s hard, but fair!!!
******This is when you ask yourself: “How big of a fan AM I, really??? Uh.. not THAT big!!”
******We should threaten to bomb his country with BTS CD’s!!!!!!
*****We like his sister better!! You know, Kim Jong Kardashian!!!

Mama June Suing Over Unfinished Teeth

Mama June Shannon sent a legal letter to her Beverly Hills-based dentist after he allegedly refused to finish the job when she wouldn’t agree for him to be on her reality TV show.  The letter claims she agreed to fly in to California to visit Dr. Tom Kalili for dental treatment in exchange for tagging him in social media posts as payment.  Kalili allegedly removed her temporary dental implants from a previous procedure but then, “after placing her in a vulnerable (and painful) position,” told her he would not complete the process unless she agreed to do media appearances to endorse his services, which she and her legal team claim she never agreed to prior to visiting him.  The letter describes Kalili’s move as one of the “most stunning ‘bait and switch’” attempts they’ve ever witnessed and demands that Kalili either complete the procedures on both her top and bottom teeth or reimburse her the $35,000 for travel and dentistry expenses.  Shannon’s manager, Gina Rodriguez, told Page Six that the reality star is planning to file a complaint with the Dental Bar on Friday as well as criminal charges.  “It is inhumane and criminal how he left her,” Rodriguez told us. “The demand for press after removing her teeth is a form of extortion.”
********There’s a “Dental Bar??” Who knew???
********The bad news: she has no teeth. The good news: Joe Exotic is warming up to her!!!!
*****How do we know the tooth brush was invented in Georgia?? If it was invented anywhere else, it would be called the “teeth” brush!!!!

Kim K Fails Second Baby Bar Exam

Kim Kardashian revealed that she has again failed the “baby bar” exam, during Thursday night’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” finale.  “I failed! F–k! I failed,” the 40-year-old, who is going to law school online, told her lawyers on the phone about her second attempt at the test. “This is really annoying.” She said her score was “pretty much the same thing … [but] a little bit worse” than the first time she took it and failed.  The “baby bar” is a test in California for first-year legal students who are not taking classes at accredited schools, such as Kardashian, who is learning under a private tutor.  Students need to get a score of 560, or 70 percent, on the seven-hour exam, according to JD Advising, but Kim said she scored only 474 on her first attempt at the test. It is unclear what she scored on her second try.  “I feel bummed. Like totally bummed, but it is what it is,” she said in a confessional on Thursday’s episode. “I know I just have to not stress about it. There’s so many other f–king stressful things going on. I just have to do better in the future.”
*****We thought the Baby Bar served Kiddie Kocktails!!
*******If she was a better lawyer, she could represent herself in one of her many divorces!!
*******The first question: “Spell A-T-T-O-R-N-E-Y!!!!”

NBC Show Halted After Sickness

Production on NBC’s upcoming competition show “Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide” was halted after more than three dozen crew members were sickened by an outbreak of “awful explosive diarrhea,” according to a report on Friday.  The conditions left people “collapsing” on set and “being forced to run into port-o-potties,” a source with knowledge of the incident told TheWrap.  Filming of the new Bobby Moynihan– and Ron Funches-hosted program, in which competitors complete various challenges on the classic outdoor slide, has now been shut down indefinitely, according to the outlet.  “The health and safety of everyone on our set is our number one priority, so out of an abundance of caution we have made the decision to stop production of ‘Ultimate Slip ’N Slide’ at the current location,” a rep for the studio told TheWrap in a statement.  “We are in the process of determining next steps in order to complete production.”   Many infected crew members blamed the mess on a lack of fresh clean water being used in the slip ‘n slide competitions, at odds with the network’s description of the show as a “fresh take on Wham-O’s iconic 1960s outdoor game,” the report said.
********By the way, explosive diarrhea is a great way to lose weight!!! (Old Hollywood secret)
*******If it was cable show, they could do “Naked Slip ‘N Slide,” which would be a bigger hit!!

Diver Swallowed By Whale

A Massachusetts lobster diver survived being swallowed up and then spat out by a humpback whale off the coast of Cape Cod, giving him about 40 surreal seconds in the mouth of the large marine animal.  In his own Biblical Jonah and the whale story, Michael Packard said it happened in a flash as he swam in about 45 feet of water one moment before everything turned dark in an instant Friday. Packard said he initially thought he was attacked by a shark but realized he didn’t feel like he was bitten and wasn’t in any pain.  That’s when he realized he was actually inside the mouth of a whale and fought to locate his breathing regulator fearing he could run out of air and suffocate. But the whale had other plans moments later.  “A humpback whale tried to eat me,” Packard told WBTS. “I was in his closed mouth for about 30 to 40 seconds before he rose to the surface and spit me out. I am very bruised up but have no broken bones.”  Packard said for those frantic moments, all he could think about was his two young boys and possibly dying inside the whale before the mammal rejected him as a meal.  “I could sense I was moving,” he told the Cape Code Times. “I could feel the whale squeezing with the muscles in his mouth.”
*******See “Jonah, Book of!!!!” (Old Testament)
********That’s like being swallowed by Rosie O’Donnell!!
********It’s good to be alive, but he did feel a bit rejected!!!

Alligator Goes To The Post Office

Sheriff’s deputies and a wildlife trapper were summoned to a Florida post office when a customer who came in to mail a package discovered a 7-foot alligator in the lobby.  The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to the post office in Spring Hill after a patron reported a gator wandering in the lobby.  The sheriff’s office said the post office has automatic double doors that likely allowed the alligator easy entry into the building.  A wildlife trapper was called to the scene and safely escorted the gator out of the building, the sheriff’s office said. See the pic HERE.
*******Tell us again: WHY do they save the gators?? There aren’t enough of them??
*******What has four legs and one arm?? A happy gator!!
*******The gator kept asking: “Is there a toilet in here??”

Longest Eyelash

A Chinese woman broke her own Guinness World Record when her longest eyelash was measured at a whopping 8 inches long.  You Jianxia, who originally set the record in June 2016, when her longest lash was 4.88 inches long, said doctors are unsure of why her eyelashes grow to be so long.  “I first realized that my eyelashes were growing in 2015. They continue to grow slowly, becoming longer and longer,” Jianxia told Guinness World Records. “I did visit medical professionals to find out why my eyelashes are longer than others people’s eyelashes. The doctor couldn’t explain this, and he felt it was really amazing.”  “I also tried to find scientific reasons such as genes or something else. However, none of my family have long eyelashes like me, so it can’t be explained,” she said.  See the video HERE.
*******She hasn’t opened her eyes in months!!!
******The checker at our local grocery store has fake eyelashes longer than that!!!

Gender Reveal Party Sparks Fire

A gender-reveal party in Canada went south after an explosive device set off a small wildfire, authorities said.   The incident happened on May 31 in northern Alberta. A device, which was supposed to release either blue or pink powder, indicating the baby’s sex, inadvertently set off an inferno, Global News reported.  The flames grew to about one acre, or roughly three-fourths of a football field, before firefighters were able to extinguish the flames.   Travis Fairweather, a wildfire information officer with Alberta Wildfire said the couple responsible was fined the equivalent of $500.   “While fireworks and exploding targets can be fun, they can also come with a heft price tag if you inadvertently start a wildfire,” Fairweather said.   Alberta Wildfire issued a statement saying that the use of exploding targets within protected forest areas are prohibited “without the written permission from a Forest Officer.”
*********Besides, kids don’t decide which gender they wanna be until they’re at least 4 years old!!

6 Ways to Land a Job With Little-to-No Experience

The Penny Hoarder


  1. Change How You Look at Postings

The first bit of advice we heard over and over was that job seekers should change the way they look at job postings no matter their work experience. Does this mean using different sites or methods of exploring job opportunities to get your foot in the door or even snag that assistant position?

Not exactly. According to career coach Kyle Elliott, it’s more of a change in mindset and attitude.

“Know that the job posting is a wish list,” says Elliot. “You do not have to have all of the qualifications listed in the job posting. Instead, focus on the experience, knowledge, and skills you do have that align with the job posting.”

In addition to highlighting the skills you have on your cover letter and resume, Elliot also suggests avoiding the time-old mistake he often sees as a career coach. You can still get a job with no experience but you don’t need to continually point out your lack of experience. After all, you are trying to get a job with no experience.

“Consider instead how you can strategically market your non-work experience on your resume. If you’ve started a side hustle, launched a business, or pursued relevant extracurricular activities, you may wish to include them in your career marketing collateral,” says Elliott.


  1. Speak Their Language

While keeping things positive is important when it comes to job application success, you’ll also want to get in the habit of mirroring a company’s language on your application.

Are they looking for a team player with a good worth ethic? Talk about that employee of the month award or that you had zero sick days last year.

“Speak the language of your target company,” says Elliott. “Use the job posting as a recipe card to write your resume, LinkedIn profile, and other career documents.”

For example, he says, if you’re targeting a customer success role and previously worked in restaurant service, focus on how you successfully dealt with customers. Explain how you were routinely able to persuade customers to order an appetizer and A dessert to make more money for both you and the restaurant.

Practice translating the story of your previous job experience into something relatable your prospective employer can appreciate. This is even more impressive if you are going after an entry level job.

“While an experience or accomplishment may seem unrelated on the surface, nearly every story can be translated,” says Elliott about the effort to get a job.


  1. Work Backwards to Show How You Fit

To expand on this last point, “working backwards” is a great strategy for writing a resume or application for a specific job, especially if it’s one you feel underqualified for. It’s important that you show the ways you will make up for this be it work ethic, education or attitude.

“Your role as a job seeker is to connect the dots between your experience and the target role,” says Elliott. “This makes the hiring manager’s job easier when they’re reviewing your job history.”

Be sure you’re capitalizing on experiences that match what your employer is looking for, but also remember to leave off anything that’s irrelevant. This will weaken your application and torpedo your chances for job interviews.

For example, if you spent a summer picking berries and this doesn’t have a strong tie to the job posting, this might be one of those things you cut. However, if you can show how you gained soft skills  — communication with colleagues and maybe customers  — then you make your experiences more relevant.

The same could be said for volunteer work which brings in no money but plenty of on-the-job education including problem solving skills, plus time management and team building experiences.

By selectively including experiences in your efforts to get a job, you’re not only flaunting your skills as a qualified employee, but also conveying your understanding of the role. Companies want to know they’re hiring someone who understands what they need, which is what you prove by using their posting as a blueprint for your application.


  1. Highlight Motivation on Cover Letter

Another great way to get an employer siked about your application is by highlighting your motivation.

If you love the work a company is doing or their mission aligns with your values and goals, you should include this in your application.

“Convey a deeper understanding of the company and more particularly, the industry or sector it’s operating within to show your personal motivation to move into the industry,” suggests networking expert and author J. Kelly Hoey.

This is more than saying something generic about your interest, says Hoey.

“Tell the story of why you’re committed to entering the industry, as your ‘why’ reveals that you’re more than yet another applicant grasping for any job opening.”


  1. Remember: Quality Over Quantity

The Internet makes it easy to get caught in the race of applying to as many jobs as you possibly can. You can copy-and-paste a slightly tweaked cover letter and resume dozens of times for dozens of postings in the span of an hour.

But somewhere in the rush, you may find the quality of your applications start to slide, or even that you’re inadvertently applying to jobs you really don’t want. This also hinders success on No. 2. How can you tailor your application when you’re in a hurry?

This is where it helps to keep a simple “quality over quantity” mantra in mind. “Focus on quality over quantity when applying to roles,” says Elliott. “Rather than applying to all of the open roles at a company, select a few key roles that you are well qualified for.”

Not only will being selective help you come off as a more serious candidate to employers, but it will also ensure you’re able to bring your A-game to every application.


  1. Grow Your Network

The time spent searching for your next job might feel long and unproductive. But keep this in mind as you hunt for jobs and wait for the job offers to roll in: As you apply for jobs and get job interviews, you are growing a professional network. Recruiters, Hiring managers, and prospective co-workers that you talk with about the jobs are now a part of your network.

“Have patience and make it part of your job application routine to stay in contact with every person who helps you along the way,” says Hoey. “By doing so, you’ll have mentors to turn to when you land the job, plus you’ll stay top of mind with those closest to the job market you’re seeking to enter.”

You never know when new opportunities will present themselves. Go the extra mile to have positive interactions with everyone you encounter on your job search.
