Obama and the Boss Team Up For Podcast

Former President Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen have joined forces for a new podcast on Spotify titled Renegades: Born in the USA.  Spotify announced the eight-episode series on Monday during its Stream On event and released the first two installments.  They will sit down to discuss race, fatherhood, marriage and the future of the United States.  “How did we get here? How could we find our way back to a more unifying American story?” Obama asks in the introduction of the first episode.  Renegades marks the second podcast launched through Spotify as part of the deal following The Michelle Obama Podcast.

Kim K Hints at Sadness on Instagram

Kim Kardashian seemed to be getting some music therapy Monday, as she posted a clip from the most emotional breakup song on the charts to her Instagram Story.  The video appeared to show Kardashian in the car passing the Palm Springs windmills as Olivia Rodrigo’s No. 1 hit song “Driver’s License” played in the background. Fans began speculating that Kardashian, 40, was turning to the tune to get over her split from the rap legend. The portion of the song Kardashian shared to her post included the following lyrics:  “And all my friends are tired Of hearing how much I miss you, but I kinda feel sorry for them ‘Cause they’ll never know you the way that I do, yeah Today I drove through the suburbs And I just can’t imagine how you could be so okay, now that I’m gone.”  Fans were quick to point out that Kardashian could have been sending a message to the public about her heartbreak over her breakup from Kanye.  “kim k listening to drivers license. she really is going through that divorce…,” one person tweeted.  Another added, “KIM KARDASHIAN LISTENING TO DRIVERS LICENSE BY OLIVIA RODRIGO. DAMN THE HEARTBREAK MUST BE HITTING HARD.”
********She was on her way to visit her new boyfriend!!!
*****Wouldn’t she make a great “Bachelorette” for the next season???
*******Would you date Kim K? Or would you rather jump into a meat grinder?? Same thing??

Pat Sajak Under Fire For Mocking Contestant

Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak upset a number of viewers on Monday when he seemingly mocked a contestant with a speech impediment.   He was trying to keep things light during Monday’s show as he was introducing contestants. While doing so, Sajak spoke with contestant Chris Brimble. After explaining to the host what he does for a living, it became clear to viewers and the host that Brimble speaks with a slight lisp. Sajak heard him out and even commented on the importance of his job, bringing technology to older adults. However, the host concluded the brief interview by saying “I thee” instead of “I see.”  While Brimble simply laughed the moment off, viewers who were upset about the Sajak’s apparent mockery of the contestant’s speech impediment took to Twitter to voice their outrage.   “Did @patsajak just mock one of the contestants??” one user wrote.   “@patsajak Hey d—-bag, say a cheap shot making fun of a contestant with a lisp.  I teach speech therapy.  You have been on the air for far too long. It’s time for you to retire. Your sarcasm is offensive and only funny to idiots such as yourself,” added one particularly angry viewer.
********But that’s his charm!!!
*****He wrote back: “Oh, thtop it!!!!”
*******You should him limping around when he has a wheelchair contestant on!!!
*******Pat is sensitive to people with challenges: he’s worked with Vanna for years!!!

Ashley Judd’s Injuries Were Serious

Ashley Judd took to Instagram where she detailed her “grueling 55-hour” rescue after shattering her leg.  The 52-year-old made it out of the jungle in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where she tripped over a fallen tree. Judd was flown to Sunninghill Hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa for surgery.  “I arrived to them from DRC in terrible shape and my leg had no pulse,” Judd wrote. “I desperately needed a blood transfusion. Their sisters (nurses) are exemplary, technically top notch, and they cared for the trauma in my body as well as my soul with equal proficiency.”  Her surgeon Dr. Eugene Greeff “was super at stabilizing my leg with the external fixator until the massive soft tissue damage and swelling went down so that I could have the Big Operation.”  “What he did was significant and I am forever in his debt,” Judd added.  “Eventually I was qualified to have the 8-hour surgery to repair the bones, decompress the hemorrhaging nerve and pick the shards of bones out of the nerve,” she revealed. “I am now recovering from surgery.”
*******They could have transplanted a rhino leg, but decided not to!!
*****She should appear on Wheel of Fortune, so Pat can mock her!! (see above)
******She was treated in the Johannesburg Hospital for Nasty Women!!
******The doc offered to slip in some breast implants while he was at it, but she said no!!!

Prince Philip Fighting Infection

Prince Philip is being treated for an infection and is not expected to leave the hospital for several days, Buckingham Palace confirmed on Wednesday.  According to the palace, he is “comfortable and responding to treatment.”  Philip’s youngest son, Prince Edward, told Sky News that his father was “a lot better.”  He said, “he’s looking forward to getting out, which is the most positive thing, so we keep our fingers crossed.”  The news comes one day after his grandson Prince William said the Duke of Edinburgh is “OK” and doctors are “keeping an eye on him.”  On Saturday, Prince Charles visited his father, who was admitted on Feb. 16 to London’s King Edward VII Hospital for “observation and rest” after falling ill.
*******We’re just guessing, but: STD??
LATE WORD FROM THE PALACE – It’s the “cocktail flu!!!”
*****He was spreading the word around that he had an erection that lasted more than four hours, but that can’t be true, can it??
*****He needs to go home!! The Queen is walking around the palace, going: “Where is he??”

Rapper Apologizes For Kobe Bryant Lyrics

Meek Mill said that he’s apologized to Vanessa Bryant for his lyric that references Kobe Bryant’s fatal helicopter crash.  “I apologized to her in private earlier today not to the public…Nothing I say on my page directed to a internet viral moment or the family of a grieving woman!” Mill tweeted on Tuesday morning.  “If you care about someone grieving change the subject!”  Vanessa blasted the rapper on her Instagram Story late Monday after hearing the leaked track, “Don’t Worry,” which includes the lyric, “If I ever lack I’m goin’ out with my choppa, it be another Kobe.”  “Dear @meekmill, I find this line to be extremely insensitive and disrespectful. Period,” she posted. “I am not familiar with any of your music, but I believe you can do better than this.”  She continued, “If you are a fan, fine, there’s a better way to show your admiration for my husband. This lacks respect and tact.”  Fans had also taken Mill to task over the “disrespectful” track, calling it shameful to mention the NBA superstar after Vanessa lost him and their 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, in January 2020.
*******This is called “stepping in sh*t!!!” Or… an “unforced error!!”
*****His next hit will be “Martin Luther King Day Is the Happiest Day of the Year!!”

Longtime lovers Eva Mendes, 46, and Ryan Gosling, 40, don’t rush things-which could explain why after being together since 2011, it seems they’re finally set to marry!  The “Hitch” star sure looked like she’s getting hitched as she sported a giant ring during a recent hike.  The intensely private couple share two daughters, Esmeralda, 6, and Amada, 4.

More Bodyguard to Boyfriend:  Heidi Klum & Martin Kirsten-(Star)

After her split from husband Seal, the model found solace in the arms of her paid protector.  “He’s a great man and recently we just got to know each other from a completely different side,” the mom of four, now 47, gushed in 2012.  (While the America’s Got Talent judge swore she’d been faithful during her marriage, Seal accused her of “fornicating with the help.”)  In 2017, three years after his split from Heidi, Martin was the last person to see rocker Chris Cornell before he died in his Detroit hotel suite.

Say What?!-(Life & Style)

“When my eyes get puffy, I pull out my Foreo Iris massager-it mimics the tapping used in traditional Asian skin care.  It looks like a vibrator, so I call it my eyebrator.  I get funny looks when I use it in the back of a car or when I go through customs at the airport.”-Gemma Chan, on her “soothing” beauty secret.

One Last Thing:  Allison Janney-(People)

The Oscar winner, 61, stars in the new film Breaking News In Yuba County.

Last guilty pleasure-

Last night I realized I didn’t have any food, so I made a big bowl of pasta with olive oil, butter, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese.  I go to it when I really want comfort food; it’s my heaven.

Last moment of pride-

My niece got her pilot’s license and flies around and rescues animals for Amelia Air.  And my nephew works behind the scenes I’m just so proud of everything they’re accomplishing in their lives.

Last time I was late-

I’m never late; I plan ahead.  Prior planning prevents poor performance.  I think it’s from my years of training in the theater.  If you’re late past a half hour, they replace you and the understudy goes on.

Loser of the Week-(In Touch)

Spike Lee-

Six-Legged Puppy

Veterinarians at an Oklahoma animal hospital said a puppy believed to be the first ever to be born alive with six legs is beating the odds by surviving and thriving.  The Neel Veterinary Hospital in Oklahoma City said the puppy, named Skipper, was born with a single head and chest cavity, but she has six legs, two tails, two pelvic regions, two lower urinary tracts and two reproductive systems.  The hospital said Skipper is believed to be the first canine with six legs to be born alive, and despite some signs of spinal bifida, her organs “appear to be in great shape.”  “All of her legs move and respond to stimulus just like a normal puppy. Its possible she may need physical therapy and assistance with mobility as she gets older,” the hospital said in a Facebook post.  The hospital said Skipper is “very strong” and is doing well at her owner’s home.  See the pic HERE.
********This is how dogs will look on Mars!!!
******If she has two reproductive systems, she’s the perfect female for a “throuple!!”
******Even the robot dogs are like, “Damnn!!!”

Bomb Turns Out To Be Cat and Kittens

An Ohio bomb squad called to investigate a suspicious package outside a church ended up discovering the contents were more adorable than dangerous — a cat and her six newborn kittens.  The Butler County Sheriff’s Office said deputies from the bomb unit were summoned to the church in New Miami on a report of a “suspicious package” left outside a door, but when they approached the object, “they didn’t hear ticking, they heard purring.” The package, a large gym bag, turned out to contain a cat and six kittens. A note inside the bag said the mother cat, Sprinkles, had given birth to the kittens the previous day.  The felines were taken to the Animal Friends Humane Society in Hamilton, where they were found to be in good health and were placed with a foster family.
*********A mom and six kittens??? That’s 73 lives altogether!!
*******Get them into a litter box!! You’ve got a ticking “cat bomb” on your hands!!
******Thank God this didn’t happen in L.A.!! They would have blown in up first and asked questions later!!

Victorian Home Towed

A 141-year-old, two-story home in San Francisco was towed six blocks from its original location to its new home in an operation that took about six hours to complete.  The seven-bedroom Victorian home, known as the Englander house, was moved Sunday from 807 Franklin Street to 635 Fulton Street, a journey of about six blocks.  Lana Costantini with the San Francisco Historical Society said moving the gigantic home on a hydraulic dolly was not without unforeseen difficulties.  “There’s been a few glitches on the way. Trees that were in the way, stops signs, lights, and signs and what not,” Costantini told KGO-TV.  Tree trimmers were employed to cut branches out of the way and street signs and parking meters were temporarily relocated to make way for the oversized load.  Officials said the relocation was the first project of its type in San Francisco in 45 years.  The owner of the home, San Francisco broker Tim Brown, is believed to have spent around $400,000 in fees and moving costs to have the house relocated.
********Get a mobile home, dude!!!
*******Homeless people were falling out as it moved down the street!!
*******He was trying for the city limits but didn’t quite make it!!
*******We hope he waked his wife up first!!!

Man Breaks T-Shirt Record

An Idaho couple teamed up to tackle an unusual Guinness World Record when the wife helped the husband don 35 T-shirts in one minute.  David Rush, who has broken more than 150 Guinness records to promote STEM education, said he and his wife, Jennifer, previously attempted the same record in summer 2020, but despite managing to put on 32 shirts, their attempt was disqualified due to a requirement that each shirt be pulled to the waist all around the body.  Rush shared a video showing his wife helping him pull on 35 T-shirts, beating the previous record of 31 shirts.  Rush said having a helper turned out to be crucial for the last few shirts, as wearing so many articles of clothing restricted the movement of his arms.
*********He says he’s promoting STEM, but he’s really just an attention hog!!
*******He liked the look, so he’s now wearing 35 t-shirts every day!!!
*******His last t-shirt was from a Motley Crue concert!! Good choice!! 







5 Pieces of Dumb Financial Advice That Most People Believe

The Penny Hoarder


Dumb Advice #1: Keep Money in Your Checking 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.

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, 0.06% is nothing these days.)

But a debit card called Aspiration lets you earn up to 5% cash back and up to 16 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.”


Dumb Advice #2: You Should Get 3 Auto Insurance Quotes

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 40. But who has time for that?

A company called Savvy will do it for you for free. It gets people an average of $826 back in their bank accounts a year — and you’ll get the same coverage you already have.

It doesn’t matter when you last renewed; you can get a check from your old company for the time left on your previous policy. (Read: They probably owe you money.)

You don’t have to make any calls or fill out any forms. It takes two minutes to see how much Savvy can put back in your pocket.

And the best part? Because we’re driving less, some insurers are slashing prices this month.


Dumb Advice #3: You Need to Save $1,000,000,000,000,000 Before You Die

All your life, people have been telling you to save. Save for emergencies. Save for the future. Save for your family. At that rate, you’re gonna need a gazillion dollars in the bank.

Here’s the thing: You should keep a healthy amount of savings in the bank, but if you want to give your family up to $1 million, use something called term life insurance.

We suggest a company like Fabric. Maybe you’ve considered this before, but thought it was only for rich or older people. But we’re hearing that people are getting it for as little as $14 a month.

And the truth is, this is one of the smartest things you can do with your money right now.

Answer a few quick questions here and finish the form to see how much money you could leave your loved ones — it only takes minutes.


Dumb Advice #4: You Need to Be a Billionaire to Buy an Apartment Building

This year has been a rollercoaster. Historically, though, real-estate investing offers the best long-term returns. (Does the name Rockefeller ring a bell?)

That’s why we like investing with pros like DiversyFund. They’ll help you make long-term investments in apartments and office buildings all over the country  — and you don’t have to be a millionaire. You can get started with only $500.

You can see exactly which properties are included in your portfolios — like a 200-unit apartment complex in Killeen, Texas or a 59-unit building in San Diego. And you don’t have to be the landlord — DiversyFund does all the heavy lifting.

Because they know how to ride out the market’s ups and downs, they’ve historically seen annual returns of 17% to 18%, though they can’t make any promises.

As a partial owner, you make money on rent payments and when property values go up. It takes just a few minutes to sign up and own your first apartment building.


Dumb Advice #5 You Have to Pay Your Credit Card Bill Every Month

If you have credit card debt, you know. The anxiety, the interest rates, the fear you’re never going to escape…

And the truth is, your credit card company doesn’t really care. It’s just getting rich by ripping you off with high interest rates. But a website called AmOne wants to help.

If you owe your credit card companies $50,000 or less, AmOne will match you with a low-interest loan you can use to pay off every single one of your balances.

The benefit? You’ll be left with one bill to pay each month. And because personal loans have lower interest rates (AmOne rates start at 3.99% APR), you’ll get out of debt that much faster. Plus: No credit card payment this month.AmOne won’t make you stand in line or call your bank, either. And if you’re worried you won’t qualify, it’s free to check online. It takes just two minutes, and it could help you pay off your debt years faster.
