Some of Halyna Hutchins’ final words following the accidental shooting incident involving her, Alec Baldwin and “Rust” director Joel Souza have been revealed. She was killed on the New Mexico set after Baldwin discharged a firearm that he was led to believe contained no live ammunition, according to a search warrant executed by the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s office. She was airlifted to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she was eventually pronounced dead. According to a report, a boom operator looked at Hutchins after she fell to the ground and said: “Oh, that was no good.” “No,” Hutchins replied. “That was no good. That was no good at all.” She was later pronounced dead at the hospital, making the brief exchange with the sound person some of her final words. “I was looking right at her, I could see an exit wound that immediately started pouring blood and that’s when [people screamed] ‘She’s shot!’ and everything went crazy,” another crew member said of the moments following the shooting. Baldwin, meanwhile, was reportedly shocked after the gun went off and continued to repeat the phrase “What the f— just happened?” Later, when Baldwin returned to base camp after changing out of his western costume that he was wearing during the incident, he informed the crew members waiting to be interviewed by police that he had “never been handed a live weapon” before this incident.
*********And with good reason… he can’t handle it!!!
********Alec should do himself a favor and STFU!!
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II has been pictured driving herself around her Windsor estate on Monday, days after being instructed by her doctors to rest for a least a fortnight and refrain from official visits. The image showed the 95-year-old monarch wearing a headscarf and sunglasses at the wheel of her car. The outing will likely be a welcome sight amid increasing concerns over her health. Last month, the Queen was forced to cancel a trip to Northern Ireland and spent a night at the King Edward VII hospital in central London, where doctors did “preliminary tests” and advised her to rest for a few days.
********They also have pictures of her doing push-ups!!!
*******This is one tough old bird. She ain’t goin’ down without a fight!!!
******Rumor has it she’s dating William Shatner!!
********In the pictures, she’s driving by herself.. and doing donuts!!!
*******Then she “accidentally” runs over Andrew!!!
Bigi Jackson — who was born Prince Michael Jackson II and formerly known as Blanket — made a rare TV appearance to call on world leaders to take action, following in the footsteps of his late father as an environmentalist. He spoke on “Good Morning Britain” Monday at his brother Prince Jackson’s Thriller Night Halloween Party, which raised funds for the Heal Los Angeles Foundation and was held at their family’s Los Angeles estate. “I do think it’s important that we all know about it,” Bigi said of climate change in the lead-up to the United Nations’ COP26 summit. “And I think we have some work to do, but our generation knows how important it is.” He also briefly talked about his dad while standing in a room festooned with the King of Pop’s iconic costumes and images of him performing through the years. “There’s a lot of history in this house and the studio here,” he explained of the Jacksons’ Hayvenhurst compound. “That’s what he was all about. That’s what each of us want to do: make things that people can enjoy and hopefully benefit their lives.” Bigi was just 7 years old in June 2009 when Michael died of cardiac arrest brought on by a lethal combination of drugs given to him by his doctor.
********Why is it that most environmentalists have huge houses, pools, limos, yachts and helicopters??
******And how do you pronounce this guy’s name?? “Biggie?” Like “Biggie Smalls??”

Boa Constrictor Found In Neighborhood
Police in a Chicago suburb are trying to find the owner of a large boa constrictor found in the bushes behind a home. The Niles Police Department said a landscaper doing work behind a Niles home found the large snake slithering under a bush. Sara Ruane, a snake expert at Chicago’s Field Museum, identified the snake as a boa constrictor. She said the reptile was likely a pet that escaped or was abandoned by its owner. Police said they are now trying to find the big snake’s owner. The discovery came just two weeks after a ball python was found slithering under a car at the Herrick Lake Forest Preserve in nearby Dupage County. Authorities said they do not believe the two snake discoveries are related. See the video HERE.

Authorities in Rhode Island said a runaway donkey has been returned to its owners after more than four months on the loose.

Owner Karen Lanoue said the female donkey had been purchased as a companion for her miniature donkey, but the new arrival escaped shortly after arriving at the property. Lanoue said she is now considering names for the donkey including “Traveling Jane” and “Runaround Sue.”
