Did Travis Barker Have An Affair With Kim K?

Shanna Moakler claimed she ended her marriage to Travis Barker because he cheated on her with Kim Kardashian, but a source says that’s not true.  “Travis and Kim have never had a romantic relationship,” a source close to the situation insisted on Monday. “They were friends who met through Paris Hilton and that is also how Kourtney and Travis were introduced.”  Moakler and Barker’s daughter, Alabama, recently spread the affair rumor when she took to her Instagram Story to blast her mother, claiming Moakler was “never completely” in her life and was not an “amazing Mom.”  Alongside her critical message, Alabama, 15, shared a screenshot of a direct message purportedly written by Moakler that read in part, “I divorced Travis because I caught him having an affair with Kim! Now he’s in love with her sister…It’s all gross…I’m not the bad guy!”  Barker has been dating Kourtney Kardashian since earlier this year. Moakler has been less than supportive of the relationship, even calling the new couple’s PDA “weird.”  The insider slammed Moakler for dragging a newly single Kim, 40, into the situation, asserting that she is guilty of “spreading lies.”  “It’s a shame that she continues to spread lies, which are not based in truth, and because it’s extremely hurtful to her kids,” the source said. “Hopefully she gets the help that she needs and can eventually find happiness.”
*******Travis is part of a select group of men who have NOT slept with Kim!!
*******His 15-year-old daughter is making drama on social media?? Join the club!!
******We hate to see Travis become a victim of the “Kardashian Kurse,” but… it’s starting!!

McConaughey Still Exploring Politics

Matthew McConaughey is reportedly further exploring a potential pivot to politics in Texas.   He has been publicly toying with the idea of throwing his hat into the upcoming race for governor in Texas against the incumbent candidate, Gov. Greg Abbott. While it has been all talk so far, a new report indicates that the “Dazed and Confused” star is taking the temperature of prominent figures in the state to assess the viability of his candidacy.   Politico reports that he has been quietly making calls to influential people in the state’s political and business circles to see if he would have enough legitimate backing to unseat Abbott if he were to run a race for governor.  The outlet reports that McConaughey has been in talks with “a deep-pocketed moderate Republican and energy CEO” so far.
*****He’s dumb enough to be a politician, but is he vicious enough?? Only time will tell!!
******Wait. A “moderate Republican??” In Texas??? Come on!!!!
*****Hey, if he’ll promote the energy industry, we’re all for it!! Just don’t wuss out like Arnold did in California!!

Nick Jonas Injured While Filming

Nick Jonas was sent to the hospital in an ambulance on Saturday after sustaining an injury while filming, TMZ reported.  It’s unknown the nature of his accident, only that it occurred on the set of secret project. The Jonas Brothers band member reportedly was already back at home Sunday night.  He last suffered a hand injury in 2018  during a post-show workout in Mexico.  Jonas joined “The Voice” as a coach in its eighteenth season and then returned to the red chair during the show’s 20th season alongside coaches Blake Shelton, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson.
******His “secret project” must have been a “sex tape!!!”

Prince Harry Questions The First Amendment

Prince Harry is taking heat for calling the First Amendment “bonkers” in a recent podcast interview.  He made the statement on Dax Shepard’sArmchair Expert” podcast while discussing what he called the media “feeding frenzy” that arose from his stay at Tyler Perry’s Beverly Hills mansion, the Daily Mail reported.  “I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers,” Harry said, according to the report.  “I don’t want to start going down the First Amendment route because that’s a huge subject and one which I don’t understand because I’ve only been here a short time.  “But, you can find a loophole in anything. You can capitalize or exploit what’s not said rather than uphold what is said,” Harry reportedly said.  Harry’s comments drew sharp criticism on Twitter from both Americans and Brits.  Brexit leader Nigel Farage opined: “For Prince Harry to condemn the USA’s First Amendment shows he has lost the plot. Soon he will not be wanted on either side of the pond.”
********How DARE you, Nigel!!! Throw him in the Tower!!
*******Most Americans don’t realize that there are far more speech restrictions in Britain and Canada than there are in this country! (true)
*****American reporters have to jump to conclusions!! It’s the only workout they get!!!

Ricky Schroder Apologizes To Costco Worker

Ricky Schroder has issued a formal apology to the Costco employee who refused to let Schroder into Costco without a mask. In a video posted on Schroder’s official Instagram, the actor spoke calmly about the incident, explaining his reasoning for acting the way he did.  “Jason, nothing personal. I’m not upset with you or anybody in the position like you have, who works for a living,” Schroder said. “I understand you were following your laws and rules. I was trying to make a point to the corporate overlords and I’m sorry that I had to use you to do it. And if I hurt your feelings, I apologize.”  He visited Costco on Sunday and filmed his confrontation with Costco employee Jason, where he can be heard arguing about the recently relaxed mask mandates (despite many states lifting restrictions, masks are still required to be worn in stores in California.)  “You’re going to listen to these people? They’ve destroyed our economy. They’re destroying our state. And you’re just going to listen to their rules?” Schroder asks in the video, which he posted to his official Instagram on Sunday and went viral almost immediately.
*******Is it just us, or are you sick and tired of these rants??? Just don’t go to Costco!!
******Ricky forgot the first rule of confronting the powerful: Don’t punch down!!!
*****He should find Gabby Newsom and give HIM a piece of his mind!!!

Harry Wants Meghan At Diana Anniversary

Prince William and Prince Harry announced in 2017 that a statue to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death — and all the amazing work their later mother did — would be installed on July 1, 2021, in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace. But a lot has happened since then, with Harry and wife Meghan Markle taking aim at the royals in their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey and upsetting many in and outside the family. Now, The Royal Observer reports that tensions are extremely high as the summer ceremony approaches — and that Harry is making some serious requests.   “Harry is demanding that Meghan be part of the official ceremony. She will not be able to attend in person because of the couple’s second child, but Harry is pushing to have a comments prepared by Meghan included in the event or a video message featuring his wife released to the media the same day the brothers unveil the statue,” a Royal Observer source dished.  And if Harry doesn’t get his way, family fear the Duke of Sussex could do the “unthinkable” and refuse to attend the ceremony altogether.  “It is very possible that Harry does not return to the U.K. for the event,” an insider added. “The cold shoulder Harry received at Prince Philip’s funeral is not helping. Harry was rattled not only by his family’s reaction but also by the negative media coverage he received during his short stay. Now he may bow out of the upcoming trip all together.”
*******Man…. he IS whipped!!!!
******What does Meghan have to do with DIana????!! Can she shut up for once??

Harry and Oprah Release Apple TV Trailer

Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey released the trailer promoting The Me You Can’t See, which premieres on Apple TV+ on May 21st.  “All over the world people are in some kind of mental, psychological, emotional pain,” Oprah says as she sits opposite Harry discussing mental health. “Being able to say, ‘This is what happened what happened to me,’ is crucial,” she adds.  Harry — who has spoken of his own challenges, especially in the wake of the death of his mother Princess Diana in 1997 — says, “To make that decision to receive help is not a sign of weakness. In today’s world, more than ever, it is a sign of strength.”  Meghan Markle also makes a cameo in the trailer, smiling and looking over Harry’s shoulder as he works at his laptop.  “The results of this year will be felt for decades,” adds Harry as a photo of Meghan reading to their son Archie is shown. “By kids, families, husbands, wives – everybody.” Glimpses of the series’ interviewees, from Glenn Close to Lady Gaga, are also unveiled.
********Have you noticed?? The more we talk about it, the crazier we get!!!

Woman Fakes Wedding To Make Ex Jealous

In a desperate attempt to make her ex-boyfriend jealous, a woman in Germany faked an elaborate wedding to get revenge on an old flame. A TikTok video of her envy-inducing antics has gone viral, with more than 1.8 million views and thousands of comments.  Sarah Vilard revealed her rock bottom moment to the tune of Gnarls Barkley’s 2006 hit “Crazy,” showing pictures of herself holding hands with a groom-for-hire, wearing a long white dress.  “Yup, I’m crazy,” she captioned the video.  Vilard, who lives in Frankfurt, Germany, split from her former beau in 2019 and hatched envy-inducing plan shortly after.  She rented out Frankfurt’s Villa Kennedy and rounded up her friends to play the roles of bridesmaids. She posted the pictures to her Instagram, where she was certain her ex would see.  The crazier thing was: Vilard was “satisfied” with the results, she told Jam Press.  “He found out through Instagram and texted me the next day and freaked out because he thought I was cheating on him while we were together,” Vilard said.
********Sounds like the ex is lucky that he dumped her!!!
******One thing’s for sure: she’s NOT a psycho hose-beast!!

Tiger Owner Surrenders

The owner of a 9-month-old tiger seen loose in a Texas neighborhood last week has surrendered the animal to authorities, the Houston Police Department said Saturday night.  “We are happy to report that the missing tiger seen in a Houston neighborhood last week has been found and appears to be unharmed,” the department tweeted.  The tiger, named India, was immediately placed in the city’s animal shelter and is expected to be transported to the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch wildlife sanctuary on Sunday, CNN reported.  Gia Cuevas and her husband, Victor Hugo Cuevas, are the owners of the tiger.  Gia Cuevas brought the animal to authorities Saturday and is not facing criminal charges at this time.  But HPD Commander Ron Borza emphasized in a news conference Saturday night that it is illegal, as well as a bad idea, to keep tigers as pets in Houston.  “In no way, shape or form should you have an animal like that in your household,” Borza said. “That animal can get to 600 pounds. It still had his claws, and it could do a lot of damage if he decided to.”

Florida Woman Upset About Her Whopper

A hangry Florida woman went ballistic in Burger King because she was upset that the tomato in her Whopper was sliced too thick, so she hurled the sandwich — and racial slurs — at a worker, police said.  Judith Ann Black, 77, was busted April 30 after admitting to Wildwood cops that she threw the sandwich at the worker’s back, according to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun.  “She stated that she was angry that the victim was not fixing the issue and ‘had the burger in my hand and tossed it at her,’” the report reads. “When asked, Mrs. Black stated that she did hit the victim with the burger.”  Black also admitted calling the employee a “stupid black b—” and using another racial slur during her tirade, police said.  The worker told responding cops Black started yelling at her while at the counter, according to the police report.  “As the victim turned around, Mrs. Black proceeded to throw the Whopper at her, striking her in the back, just below the neck against her will,” police said. “Mrs. Black then walked out to her vehicle, followed by her husband, and left.”  The female worker said she and a co-worker walked outside as the couple left and overheard Black call her a “n—–,” according to the report.  Several witnesses, a Burger King manager and video footage from inside the restaurant confirmed the worker’s account, police said.
*********Eating that bad Burger King food can affect your personality!!!

Things To Try If Your Allergies Are Worse Than Ever This Year

Huffington Post


Intranasal Sprays

These specific sprays — the kind that are designed to go straight up your nostril — “are generally more effective than other types of allergy medicine for the initial treatment of seasonal allergies,” Fonacier said. They can help decrease inflammation in the nasal passages and also decrease congestion. If your nose feels especially stuffy, this might be a helpful remedy for you.

Intranasal corticosteroids tend to be the most effective treatment if you suffer from persistent allergy symptoms, especially if they are interfering with your quality of life, Fonacier said. There are plenty of popular brands you can buy over the counter at your local pharmacy.


Eye Drops

If you’ve used eye drops to treat itchy, allergy-responsive eyes and found them to at least temporarily relieve your discomfort, keep the product in your anti-allergy arsenal. Visine’s allergy eye drops appear to be a crowd favorite, with more than 4,000 5-star reviews on Amazon. (Just a heads up: Many say that you will experience some tingling or burning at first, but they deliver results.)


A Nasal Flush

Some experts may suggest a saline solution to flush out your nasal passages. These products are sometimes called neti pots and are typically available to purchase over the counter.

While research indicates these can be effective — A 2012 review of 10 studies showed that saline nasal irrigation had beneficial effects for people with allergic rhinitis, aka hay fever — it’s important you’re using the device correctly.

According to the FDA, this kind of nasal flush is generally regarded as safe, so long as you use the devices properly and according to instructions. The FDA has thorough guidelines on how to use these tools effectively here.


Oral Antihistamines

You can use oral antihistamines in combination with intranasal sprays to reduce your symptoms, Fonacier said, recommending the low or non-sedating type instead of the kinds that make you sleepy, like Benadryl. If you’re looking for non-drowsy types, you could try brands like Allegra, Zyrtec, Xyzal, Claritin, Alavert or Clarinex, she added.



Immunotherapy — aka allergy shots — have been shown to decrease certain allergy symptoms and prevent the development of new allergies, Fonacier said.

“The effectiveness of allergy shots appears to be related to the length of the treatment program as well as the dose of the allergen. Some people experience lasting relief from allergy symptoms, while others may relapse after discontinuing allergy shots.”

You’ll want to talk with your allergist to find out if an allergy shot could be right for you.


Cooling Your Face With Some Eye Stones

Sometimes allergy relief looks like self-care. If your eyes are puffy from intolerable itchiness, maybe you’d benefit from a pair of eye stones, which you first refrigerate and then place gently on your eyes.

If anything, the cooling sensation will feel good and, maybe even better, the stones will force you to rest in one place and just relax after a frustrating day of allergies.


Prescription Medication

While OTC treatments are widely available and effective at reducing symptoms, some people who suffer from allergies may benefit from a prescription leukotriene receptor antagonist, which has been approved for allergic rhinitis as a “second-line treatment,” Fonacier said. Of course, you’ll have to discuss this option with your allergist.  This treatment method may be easier this year than in years past; staying indoors with the windows and doors closed can help prevent worsening allergy symptoms, Fonacier said. Midday and afternoon hours are typically when pollen counts are highest, so keep this in mind as you consider your days and when you plan to leave the house.  This goes for the car, too — even though a fresh breeze can feel invigorating, you’ll want to go for air conditioning and keep the windows closed to limit the amount of pollen that you come into contact with.


Investing In A Quality Vacuum

It isn’t fair that you have to suffer from allergies and clean more often to feel better, but such is life. Pollen and other allergens can get trapped in your rugs and carpets and continue to haunt you, so get to the root of the issue by sucking these allergens out of your house.

One Hoover model is especially good for combating pet hair. A Dyson is also adept at capturing pet hair, allergens and truly anything else on your floors (it’s pricey, but once you use it you’ll understand why). Or you can go with an iRobot, which is strong on dust and ― best of all ― hands-free.

You may want to ask a family member or roommate to empty the vacuum for you (outdoors, preferably) so you don’t have to suffer from all of the allergens you’ve finally captured.


Rinsing Off

Taking a shower, washing your hair and changing your clothes after spending time outdoors can also help relieve some of your allergy symptoms. These routines will limit how much time you’ll spend with pollen on your body. Be sure to wash your outdoor clothes before re-wearing them.


Wearing A Mask

Fonacier said wearing a mask, such as a NIOSH-rated 95 filter mask, can help limit your dreadful allergy symptoms when you’re outdoors, whether you’re doing chores like mowing the lawn or just getting some sun. Consider this an added bonus of masks, since we know that wearing one can also help limit the spread of COVID-19.


Trying Acupuncture

If needles don’t make you squeamish, you might want to give this ancient practice a go. A 2015 review of more than a dozen studies found that acupuncture showed beneficial results for both people with seasonal and year-long allergies.


Getting A Plant

Add some green to your home and you’ll arm it against allergens, too, so long as you’re investing in the right kind of plant. While houseplants can’t do the work of air purifiers, some have been shown to help remove harmful compounds from your indoor air, which could help dull your symptoms. A great plant to consider is a spider plant, which is extremely low maintenance (read: easy to keep alive). Some other plants to consider include an areca palm, a peace lily or an English ivy.
