Octomom fraud

Octomom fraud. Octomom is being under investigation for welfare fraud, apparently someone turned her in, which started this investigation. According to TMZ on Wednesday, March 20, 2013, if this is true, Octomom could go to jail. Someone lodged a complaint with the L.A. County Department of Welfare Fraud Prevention that Octomom, Nadya Suleman, made close to $200,000 last year, but still collected welfare, as well as food stamps. Is this woman really that oblivious to the laws to do such a thing? She talked about being on welfare to the media, so if she was making money at the same time she cooked her own goose. If Octomom, who has 14 kids, makes $119,000 a year or less, she's legally entitled to welfare, but it sounds like she exceeded the limit by almost double. She scored all that money from her porn movie, where she self-pleasured herself on video. She also took a couple of stripping gigs. If Octomom did collect welfare when she was not entitled to it due to her income level, sh

Seth MacFarlane splits, It was really seems as if Seth MacFarlane and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke are no longer playing the game of love. At least not with each other. E! News has learned that the 39-year-old Family Guy funnyman and the 25-year-old actress have parted ways. Seth MacFarlane says he will not host the Oscars again "They are no longer dating," a source tells E! News. "It was really a location challenge. She has been in Europe shooting Game of Thrones and he is based in California, so it was hard to make it work despite the distance. They have remained friends." It was first revealed they were an item when the two were spotted getting cozy at the HBO Emmy afterparty at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood last September. MacFarlane most recently hosted this year's Oscars while Clarke will soon be seen on Broadway in Breakfast at Tiffany's. A rep for MacFarlane could not be reached for comment.

Dennis Rodman secret, Kim Jong Has A Daughter

Dennis Rodman secret, Kim Jong Un Has A Daughter? It was may be time to add Kim Jong Un's name to the list of folks who aren't eager to trust Dennis Rodman. In a Tuesday interview with The Sun, the retired American basketball star claimed Kim has a daughter. If the statement is true, Rodman may have outed a major state secret. “[Ri Sol Ju] kept talking about their beautiful baby daughter,” Rodman told The Sun of Kim's wife. There has been previous speculation that the couple had a baby girl, but Pyongyang has yet to officially acknowledge any potential heirs to Kim Jong Un's regime. Indeed, North Korea Leadership Watch editor Michael Madden told the Washington Free Beacon that the North Korean government "would have made an announcement” if the child was a boy. Rodman added, per The Sun, that Ri Sol Ju seemed "very elegant and quite tall for a Korean — maybe 5ft 5in." A recent United Nations report found that more than a quarter of North Korean children

According to Global Post, Rodman let out a big secret when he said that Kim Jong Un has a daughter. This child has been kept a secret and nobody knew about it at all until Rodman opened up his big mouth. Rodman said that his wife Ri Sol Ju kept talking about their beautiful little girl. Everyone has thought they had a child, but the news was never released at all. Are you shocked to hear this news? Will Rodman be in any trouble for letting it out?

Sinkhole swallows pond, How Do Sinkholes occurred

Sinkhole swallows pond, Residents were very concerned after a sinkhole swallowed up a pond on Sunday stunning local residents in Newcastle, California. Local landowner, Mark Korb, has said he woke up on Sunday morning only to find the man-made pond on his land had completely disappeared, apparently it had drained away due to a massive sinkhole beneath the land. The sinkhole managed to drain the entire pond just overnight, with Korb saying, "I would guess probably four to five hours for this whole area to drain." The report comes just weeks after two massive sinkholes in Florida stunned the nation, with one of them swallowing up a man as he lay in his bedroom. So what are sinkholes and how do they occur? Sinkholes are basically depressions in the ground that form over time due to the combined forces of erosion and gravity. They have been known to reveal themselves gradually over time, although sometimes, like the cases in Florida, they can cause sudden collapses. Scientists s

Grandma convicted

Grandma convicted, The 75-year-old woman and a grandma was on  Tuesday convicted of second-degree murder for killing her teenage grandson last spring in her Detroit-area home, after jurors rejected her claim that she shot him six times in self-defense. Sandra Layne cried quietly when she heard the verdict, which was delivered during the first full day of jury deliberations. She was also found guilty of using a firearm during a felony and likely faces at least 14 years in prison for the death of her grandson, Jonathan Hoffman. Defense attorney Jerome Sabbota said later that Layne was "devastated" by the verdict. But some family members had harsh words. Hoffman's mother, Jennifer Hoffman, said her mother was a "monster" who deserved to go to prison. "I'm glad she's put away and can't do harm to anyone else," Jennifer Hoffman said outside court. "He was a great kid and didn't deserve this." His father, Michael Hoffman, said the

Next Bond movie

Next Bond movie, MGM Studios is planning to send James Bond on his next mission sooner than later, announcing Wednesday that it hopes to have the next installment of the popular spy series in theaters within the next three years. MGM Chairman and Chief Executive Gary Barber, in a conference call with investors, said the studio is developing the screenplay for the next Bond film, the 24th entry in the 50-year-old franchise. “We look forward to announcing a director soon,” Barber said. “We are really thrilled with where we have taken this franchise.” Sam Mendes, director of the most recent Bond film, 2012's "Skyfall," announced earlier this month that he passed on an offer from series producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli to return as director. Star Daniel Craig is signed for two more films as the British secret agent. Getting the wheels turning on the next movie is understandable given the commercial and critical success of "Skyfall." The film grossed

$3 bowl for $2.22 million

$3 bowl for $2.22 million, Yea recently thats exactly what took place in New York City. The rare Chinese bowl, purchased for $3 at a tag sale, was reportedly sold at auction for the astonishingly high price of slightly more than $2.22 million. According to a report on Tuesday (March 19) from The Associated Press, the auction estimate comes from Sotheby's, where the bowl was sold recently. The bowl itself was said to have been purchased back in 2007 by a buyer who then put in on display in their home. It seems like the buyer wasn't quickly aware of the value of the bowl, though, having purchased it for only $3 at a tag sale. It turns out that the bowl itself is at least 1,000 years old and dates back to the Northern Song Dynasty. Nicknamed a "Ding" bowl, it was put on displays part of a fine Chinese ceramics and works of art auction on Tuesday. Anyone selling a $3 bowl for $2.22 million has to feel pretty good about the return on that investment. It will be interestin

Sinkhole swallows pond, How did that happend?

Sinkhole swallows pond, When he went to bed Saturday night, the pond was there. On Sunday, March 17 it was gone. So How does that actually happen? thats is possibily the question everyone is having in there mind. While northern California is no where near as prone to sinkholes as Florida (see USGS sinkhole map), one clue might be the fact that the pond was man-made. While sinkholes don't need a human trigger, changes in drainage due to construction or agricultural irrigation have been known to activate mass outbreaks of sinkholes in Florida and other parts of the country. As The Christian Science Monitor reported earlier this month after a Florida man was swallowed in his bed by a sinkhole, "Drought followed by heavy rains can also instigate sinkholes as heavy, water-logged earth presses down on limestone caves suddenly devoid of buoyant water. The two previous deaths attributed to sinkholes both involved professional well drillers whose activities cracked the top of limeston

Sinkhole swallows pond, the couple in Calif woke up early on Sunday and found out that a huge sinkhole had swallowed the pond in their backyard. Homeowner Mark Korb, who lives at the property with his wife, said that the hole had drained the pond behind his Newcastle home in just five hours. Previously it had taken seven days to empty the same volume of water. A sinkhole is a hole that opens up suddenly in the ground. They mostly occur because of erosion, underground water that gathers naturally or due to man-made activities. Gone!

Obama arrives in Israel, vows undying US support

Making his first official visit to Israel, President Barack Obama pledged on Wednesday unwavering commitment to the security of the Jewish State where concern over a nuclear-armed Iran has clouded U.S.-Israeli relations. He also stressed the need for Middle East peace at the start of a three-day trip, which is aimed at resetting strained relations with both the Israelis and Palestinians, but is not expected to provide new initiatives or substantial policy moves. Descending from Air Force One in bright Spring sunshine, Obama briefly embraced Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, with whom he has notoriously testy ties, before offering smiles and handshakes to waiting ranks of ministers. "I see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations, to restate America's unwavering commitment to Israel's security and to speak directly to the people of Israel and to your neighbors," Obama said at a red-carpet welcoming ceremony at Tel Aviv

Authorities say that's crossing the line, but they haven't been able to stop the shenanigans.

Kristen is half of a pair of identical twins from Houston, who according to the team's website , has "a lucky pair of socks that I wear for every Hawks game." Unless they were in the laundry Monday night, she may want to reconsider that superstition. Although judging from the video, the fact that she escaped relatively unscathed might mean they were actually serving their purpose.

Beyonce and Jay-Z attend the HBO Documentary Film "Beyonce: Life Is But A Dream" New York Premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater on February 12, 2013 in New York City. Jay-Z 's musical tribute to Beyonce on Kendrick Lamar's new track isn't exactly a Shakespearean sonnet, but that doesn't mean it isn't romantic. In spite of its name, "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe," the remixed song finds the 43-year-old rapper waxing poetic about his superstar wife of four years, with whom he has a 14-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy. "Up in the clouds, me and my spouse / Rumors on the ground gettin' too loud," the Brooklyn hip hop mogul rhymes. "Please turn them s--ts down, can't hear myself think / Turbulence, s--t, almost spilled my drink."

Katy Perry and John Mayer attend the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards Pre-GRAMMY Gala held at The Beverly Hilton on February 9, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. Katy Perry and John Mayer have once again said goodbye -- for now. The pop songstress, 28, and singer-songwriter, 35, have split for the second time, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly. The high-profile pair began casually dating during summer 2012, and briefly called it quits back in August before reconciling the next month. "It's sad," one pal tells Us, but cautions that it might not be a permanent break. "It's not over until it's over. You have to see how things play out." Adds another source: "She's leaving the window open. They have both been so focused on work." Indeed, Perry has been busy recording her third studio album in Los Angeles, while Mayer -- on the mend following serious vocal problems and throat surgery last year -- is prepping for upcoming tour dates an

After dating on and off since last summer, John Mayer and Katy Perry have broken up again, People reports. "It's sad," a source told Us Weekly. "It's not over until it's over. You have to see how things play out." In what is becoming the de facto Hollywood response, another source blamed the couple's busy schedules, saying, "She's leaving the window open. They have both been so focused on work." Katy Perry and John Mayer First spotted together last June, John and Katy called it quits back in August. That was short-lived, however, as the duo were seen smooching it up at awards shows and restaurants around Los Angeles the next month. Just last month, the seemingly happy couple was spotted together at the Grammys, with Perry even revealing to our own Sway that her "boyfriend" introduced her to the smooth sounds of Miguel. Mayer has left a slew of starlets in his wake in the past, including very public re

South Korean banks, media report network crashed

Computers networks at two major South Korean banks and three top TV broadcasters went into shutdown mode en masse Wednesday, paralyzing bank machines across the country and prompting speculation of a cyberattack by North Korea. Screens went blank promptly at 2 p.m. (0500 GMT), with skulls popping up on the screens of some computers — a strong indication that hackers planted a malicious code in South Korean systems, the state-run Korea Information Security Agency said. Some computers started to get back online more than 2 ½ hours later. Police and South Korean officials investigating the shutdown said the cause was not immediately clear. But speculation centered on North Korea, with experts saying a cyberattack orchestrated by Pyongyang was likely to blame. The shutdown comes amid rising rhetoric and threats of attack from Pyongyang in response to U.N. punishment for its December rocket launch and February nuclear test. Washington also expanded sanctions against North Korea this month

Actors Patrick Stewart, left, and Ian McKellen. McKellen and Ross covered a wide range of subjects (the whole 15-minute interview is quite entertaining, we suggest watching it if you have the time), but when the topic of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" came up, the award-winning actor announced, "I'm going to marry Patrick," resulting in some hardy chuckles from the audience until he clarified, "How else do you put that? I'm going to officiate at his wedding." And apparently this is not the first time that McKellen, 73, has presided over a wedding -- he's
