Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson were spotted on a double date with Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sánchez at hot spot A.O.C. in West Hollywood, Calif., Monday night.  Following their outing with the Amazon CEO and his girlfriend, the lovebirds were photographed with their arms wrapped around each other as they exited the restaurant.   Pete attempted to shield himself from the paparazzi by wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses with his hood up, but clearly, it didn’t work.  Meanwhile, Bezos looked edgy in jeans and a black leather jacket while Sánchez showed off her ample cleavage in a low-cut pink sundress cinched at the waist.  The couples parted ways at the end of the night, with Davidson helping his girlfriend into her white Maybach while Bezos and Sanchez hopped into an SUV with a driver and bodyguard.

Al Pacino Uses A “Shrek” Phone Case

Fans on Twitter were going nuts after noticing the Al Pacino has a phone case with what appears to be Shrek’s face all over it. Jason Momoa shared a photo on Instagram of a group dinner celebrating a new art exhibition featuring the works of painter Julian Schnabel.   At first glance, the photo seems to be extremely ordinary with a bunch of empty plates. He can be seen alongside other friends, including Mick Jagger’s ex-girlfriend Noor Alfallah, 28. When Marie Bardi, social media producer at the “Blank Check” podcast, brought the phone case to Twitter’s attention, the photo soon went viral.  “Al’s headphones continue to be iconic,” she writes about Pacino’s oft-seen wired headphones. “But I need a full investigation on whatever the f – – k is supposed to be on his iPhone case.”  Bardi then discovered a Shrek phone case on Amazon that resembles the phone case in the picture with the Hollywood actor.   Twitter lost it after the realization.  Pacino’s now-viral phone case is still being sold on Amazon for just $12.95.
********What’s green and smells like Al Pacino?? His Shrek phone case!!
*********He’s dating Mick Jagger’s 28-year-old sex-girlfriend!! The phone case is to impress her!!
******How many times does 81 go into 28??? He’s not telling!!

Giant Belt Buckle

A Montana-based company broke a Guinness World Record when it unveiled a giant belt buckle measuring nearly 15 feet across in Texas.  Montana Silversmiths, based in Columbus, Mont., had the belt buckle shipped to its Dallas showroom in four parts, and the pieces were then assembled into the world’s largest belt buckle.  Guinness World Records confirmed the massive belt buckle, a replica of the company’s most popular buckles, measured 10 feet and 6 inches tall and 14 feet and 6.4 inches wide, enough to claim the record.  The “Big Horn trophy” buckle features the silhouette of a cowboy with golden flowers, silver stars and the company’s signature silver filigree.  “We are paying homage to a quintessential piece of the West and cowboy way of life,” Judy Wagner, Montana Silversmiths’ chief marketing officer, told Guinness World Records.  See it HERE.

Pig Like Animal Takes A Joyride

Deputies in Arizona said a javelina in search of Cheetos climbed into a vehicle and ended up taking in on a brief joyride.  The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post that a deputy was called to a Cornville neighborhood on a report of a javelina — an animal also known as a peccary or skunk pig — trapped inside a Subaru station wagon.  The deputy learned the vehicle’s rear hatch had been left open overnight, and the javelina had climbed in to raid a bag of Cheetos that was left inside the car.  The animal’s antics inside the vehicle caused the rear hatch to close, trapping the javelina inside.  The javelina’s attempts to escape the car led to it being shifted into neutral, rolling out of a driveway and crossing a road before coming to a stop under some trees.  The deputy opened the vehicle’s rear hatch, allowing the javelina to escape unscathed. The animal caused damage to the car’s dashboard and the interior of the passenger side door.
*********If you don’t know what a javelina is… it’s a female javelin!!
*****Leaving your hatchback open overnight in the desert?? Not recommended!!
******This is what they look like!! Obviously, their diet consists mainly of Cheetos!!

Florida Man Caught With Guns, Drugs and Gator!

A Florida man was arrested at a Naples traffic stop after being found in possession of a live baby alligator, firearms and loaded syringes Friday morning.   Michael Marolla was stopped after officers said they recognized him from a previous encounter regarding a suspended license. He was one of three individuals in the car, including Adam Scarborough and Marco Duran, according to police arrest records.  Officers at the scene found a baby alligator “in an open plastic tub” in the back of Marolla’s truck, according to a Facebook post by the Collier County Sheriff’s Office. They discovered two firearms, one hidden in the glove box and another underneath the front passenger seat, police said.  Marolla was also found with two loaded syringes in his jacket that later tested positive for methamphetamine, police said.
*******That was gonna be one hell of a party!!
*******As he was leaving the house with his baby alligator, he said, “I’d better go back and get my guns and my meth!!”
*****This a state where “Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms” is the name of a convenience store!!

Florida Woman Puts Kid In The Dryer

A Florida woman was arrested this weekend for stuffing a 4-year-old boy inside a laundry dryer and activating the machine, according to a report.  Amber Chapman was busted on child abuse charges after the boy told investigators that “Miss Chapman” put him inside a machine with some towels and that he “went around and around,” authorities said.  The tot was initially taken to an emergency room in February with bruising around his eyes, ears, shoulders and lower back.  The child told the Lake County Sheriff’s Office that Chapman, of Eustis, opened the door at one point in the cycle and then closed it again to resume the tumbling.  A medical report on the case stated that doctors found his injuries to be consistent with the boy’s statements.  After gathering enough evidence to pursue the case, cops arrested Chapman this past weekend and she was later released on a $15,000 bond.
***********As she stuffed him in, she said, “That’ll learn ya!!”
********Well, how are you SUPPOSED to dry your kid off??
*****This is part of a new documentary called: “Florida Man – The Early Years!!”






8 Dangerous Habits That Are Making Us Miss Out on a Whole Bunch of Money



  1. You Leave Your Money in a Savings Account

You’ve probably heard the best way to grow your money is to stick it in a savings account and leave it there for, well, ever. That’s bad advice.

But maybe you’re just looking for a place to safely stash it away — but still earn money. Under your mattress or in a safe will get you nothing. And a typical savings account won’t do you much better. (Ahem, .09% is nothing these days.)  But a debit card called Aspiration lets you earn up to 5% cash back and up to 11 times the average interest on the money in your account.

Not too shabby!

Enter your email address here, and link your bank account to see how much extra cash you can get with your free Aspiration account. And don’t worry. Your money is FDIC insured and under a military-grade encryption. That’s nerd talk for “this is totally safe.”


  1. You Don’t Put Aside $1M For Your Family

Have you thought about how your family would manage without your income after you’re gone? How they’ll pay the bills? Send the kids through school? Now’s a good time to start planning for the future by looking into a term life insurance policy.  A lot of us assume our savings are enough. Or that this is something to worry about later, because right now, you don’t have the time or money for that. But your application can take minutes — and you could leave your family up to $1 million with a company called Bestow.

Rates start at just $16 a month. The peace of mind of knowing your family is taken care of is priceless.

If you’re under the age of 54 and want to get a fast life insurance quote without a medical exam or even getting up from the couch, get a free quote from Bestow.


  1. You Don’t Put $5 in the Stock Market

Take a look at the Forbes Richest People list, and you’ll notice almost all the billionaires have one thing in common — they own another company.

But if you work for a living and don’t happen to have millions of dollars lying around, you’re probably assuming this is totally out of reach.

That’s why a lot of people use the app Stash. It lets you be a part of something that’s normally exclusive to the richest of the rich — buying pieces of other companies for as little as $1.

That’s right — you can invest in pieces of well-known companies, such as Amazon, Google or Apple, for as little as $5.  The best part? When these companies profit, so can you. Some companies even send you a check every quarter for your share of the profits, called dividends.

It takes two minutes to sign up, plus Stash will give you a $5 sign-up bonus once you deposit $5 into your account.


  1. You Keep a Low Credit Score — For No Reason

We get it. It’s so easy to dismiss your credit score. There’s nothing you can do about it anyway, right? Eventually it’ll take care of itself.

But as soon as you go to buy a home, take out a car loan or even open a credit card, you’ll immediately regret these assumptions.  The truth is, your credit score plays a large role in some of your biggest financial decisions, but it doesn’t have to be that difficult to get it on track, thanks to a free website called Credit Sesame.

In 90 seconds, you’ll get access to your credit score, any debt-carrying accounts and a handful of personalized tips to improve your score. You’ll even be able to spot any errors holding you back (one in five reports have one).

James Cooper, of Atlanta, used Credit Sesame to raise his credit score nearly 300 points in six months.* “They showed me the ins and outs — how to dot the I’s and cross the T’s,” he said.

Getting your free credit score takes just 90 seconds.


  1. You Assume You Already Know Everything

Instead, push yourself to learn more about investing, saving and budgeting through websites, podcasts and books.

Here are a few of our recommendations (besides The penny Hoarder, of course):

  • “How to Money” podcast
  • “The Total Money Makeover” by Dave Ramsey
  • “The Side Hustle Show” podcast
  • “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki
  • “The Money Nerds Podcast”
  • “The Richest Man in Babylon” by George Samuel


  1. You Haven’t Canceled Your Car Insurance

People love to tell you to shop around. “You should be getting three different quotes to get the best price on car insurance,” they say.

Sure, this sounds like good advice. Here’s why it’s wrong: Comparing only three companies isn’t nearly enough. We suggest comparing dozens. But who has time for that?

Use a website called EverQuote to see all your options at once.

EverQuote is the largest online marketplace for insurance in the US, so you’ll get the top options from more than 175 different carriers handed right to you.

Take a couple of minutes to answer some questions about yourself and your driving record. With this information, EverQuote will be able to give you the top recommendations for car insurance. In just a few minutes, you could save up to $610 a year.


  1. You Leave Behind $225 Every Month

No matter who you are or what your budget looks like, it’s always nice to have some extra income. But how are you going to do that without a raise?  Well, what if we told you a research company would pay you to watch cooking videos on your computer?

It’s too good to be true, right?

But we’re serious. InboxDollars will pay you to watch short video clips online. One minute you might watch someone bake brownies and the next you might get the latest updates on Kardashian drama.

All you have to do is choose which videos you want to watch and answer a few quick questions about them afterward.

No, InboxDollars won’t replace your full-time job, but it’s something easy you can do while you’re already on the couch tonight wasting time on your phone. It’s possible to earn up to $225 per month watching these videos.

It’s already paid its users more than $56 million.  It takes about one minute to sign up, and you’ll immediately get a $5 bonus to get you started.


  1. You Pay More Than $5/Month for Cell Service

Many of us assume we’re just stuck paying $100-plus for cell phone service each month, but there are actually plenty of discount options out there — that really do work.

How long have you been with your current company? Probably a while, right? Which means you’re probably paying way too much.

But we found a discount wireless company called Tello Mobile that offers plans starting at just $5 a month. How much are you paying now? Exactly. Imagine cutting that to just $5.  Tello recently switched to a nationwide GSM network, which means improved 4G LTE/5G coverage, faster data speed and a more stable network. It lets you choose a wireless plan based on how many minutes and how much data you want, and you can even use Tello’s coverage tool to see how strong its network is where you live. More than 7,000 customers have given it an excellent rating on Trustpilot.

Plus, Tello is super flexible. It lets you choose the plan that makes sense for you. Plans are priced based on how much data and how many minutes you want. For example, a family of four can get 2GB of data each, plus unlimited talk and text for just $56 a month total. Free hotspot and unlimited texts are included in every plan. Plus, there are no early termination or activation fees, no contracts or phone-exclusive plans and no tricks of any kind.

It’s easy to get started and see how much you could save. Tello makes it simple to switch and even keep your phone number. No need to even leave the house — you can do everything online. You can bring your own GSM phone or buy a new one through them. See how much you could save.
