Bieber’s Mom Wishes She Could Be The Next Bachelorette?
Patti Mallette, Justin Bieber mom, was among the millions of fans watching the season finale of the Bachelor aired on Monday 11th March. She kept on tweeting what was happening in the show after every minute . Although this might seem completely normal for any fan, it came as a shocker when Patti wrote that she would not mind being the next bachelorette.
Her tweet read, “Who will be the next Bachelorette?”. “Me perhaps?? Hmmmmm…”
This should not be taken as an official announcement but a confirmation that Bieber’s mum wouldn’t mind being in the Bachelorette.
It seems like Pattie is very fond of this dating show and has openly showed her love for it. According to US Weekly, Pattie and Chris Harrison, the host of the show, went out on a date last year. Pattie even posted a photo of them taken in the backstage of a Bieber concert. There were rumors that the two were an item but Pattie clarified that it was nothing more than a friendly night. This might be true because nothing more came out of the date.
5 American Soldiers Killed In a Horrific Helicopter Crash
U.S. has suffered one of the deadliest losses this year in Afghanistan after a helicopter crashed in the southern part of the country killing five soldiers.
A total of seven U.S. special operations forces were killed on that day, as two more had earlier been gunned down in eastern Afghanistan through an insider attack carried out by a local policeman. 10 people were injured and several members of the Afghan security forces killed during the attack.
According to a statement released by NATO, initial reports show that there was no enemy activity in the area during the crash. However, an investigation is being conducted to determine the cause of the crash.
According to a report by a U.S. official, the plane crashed outside Kandahar city, and all the dead soldiers were Americans . Hamid Karzai, the Afghanistan president, was at the time of the crash rebuking the Taliban for prolonging the stay of foreign troops in the country by carrying out deadly attacks over the weekend that left 19 Afghans dead.
Popular star on the TV show “Teen Mom 2″, Jenelle Evans, has once again gone to rehab only to leave early. Rehab seems to be a trend with Jenelle, going for treatment just to leave early every time. This stint in rehab only lasted four days. Jenelle checked herself in to the 30 day treatment program just a couple days after posting a tweet on her Twitter account that she has been completely drug free since November 2012. Sources say Jenelle did not stay in rehab because she does not need it. They said she just needs to figure out her relationships and her life in general.
This most recent stint in rehab follows accusations by Jenelle’s estranged husband, Courtland Rogers, who claims she was using heroine while pregnant with his child. That pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. The two have only been married for a couple months. They got married in December of 2012. In January, Jenelle filed four assault on a female charges and one battery on an unborn child charge against Courtland.
Giant Land Snail Found in Australia
Who knew snails could be bigger than expected? Many of us may be vaguely aware of the garden snail, a variety that rests just above a half of a finger length.
The African giant Snail lies roughly 8 inches across and is barely held on your entire hand.
A recent discovery found a Giant African Snail in Australia at the relatively modest length of 20 centimeters. They are not local to the region, and concerning for the country as a whole.
The Giant African Land Snail is a native to Africa but owners have since been having them as pets, causing invasive damage to crops.
The Australian find could lead to more discoveries and a concerning epidemic for locals.
The find leads many to speculate that there are more, as the species could be causing extensive damage to the region from an influx of Giant African Land Snails eating crops.
Parents Drug Their Child For Over a Year So They Could Sleep
Every parent would love to get full uninterrupted nights of sleep, rather than having to wake up every few hours to tend to their children. One couple in Gloucestershire took this to a whole new level as they gave their daughter paracetamol – a pain killer that is not intended for children her age.
According to The Daily Mail, the parents made the decision to give it to their daughter at night to keep her from waking up and disturbing their sleep. Officials also found anxiety medicine in her system. This all went on for a year and a half before they were caught.
When the mother was pregnant with the daughter she regularly used these drugs. This caused the baby to be addicted. Instead of being patient, the parents kept giving the daughter the drugs. The only reason they were caught is one of the parent’s siblings told on them. It is not surprising to note that the parents met while they were in rehab, but their actions were ruled as not being malicious.
Winter Storm Nemo moves on the Northeast
As winter storm Nemo begins to make landfall in the Northeastern United States, mayors and governors along the northern east coast are urging residents to prepare for the storm. Boston and New York are among the cities expected to be hit the hardest and hundreds of flights and trains have already been canceled between the two cities.
Snow and sleet were already starting to fall in some parts of the Northeast and schools have been canceled as residents were told to expect one to three feet combined with hurricane strength winds until the blizzard has passed. The National Weather Service has warned that Nemo could bring “potentially historic” weather levels.
Winter Storm Nemo was formed due to two low pressure systems, one from the Ohio Valley and one coastal pressure system that is on a jet stream from the Golf of Mexico. The two systems have combined, creating potentially historic snow fall and winds.
Jolie kids eat crickets
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt want their children to learn how and what other cultures in the world eat. They are teaching them what types of delicacies come from other countries. In an interview, Jolie mentioned that she does not even have to encourage her kids to sample the worldly fare; they are up for trying anything.
She mentions that she has always loved to eat crickets, and that her kids also like to eat the critters. She goes on to say in the interview that they eat crickets as if they are Doritos, and that crickets do taste good, like potato chips.
Jolie says that she eventually had to ban crickets at snack time because the kids were beginning to eat so many of them. She was not worried that the crickets were bad to eat, but she was worried that if they ate too many of them, it might make them sick.
Chicago Tops Orkin’s List of Top Bed Bug Cities for 2012
Chicago, the notorious for gangster Al Capone, has now gained another dubious distinction: “Orkin’s 2012 Worst Cities”. Orkin, the pest-control giant, moved Chicago to the top of the list after an uptick in bed bug infestations. Specifically, the Windy City saw a 33% increase in bed bug related pest control over the previous year.
The distinction isn’t something done in jest. Orkin’s issued the following general “travel advisory” for all travelers which read, “We all need to be very cautious when we travel–whether it is business or pleasure, or to visit family, friends or vacation.” Contrary to popular belief, bed bugs do not necessarily thrive in messy or untidy dwellings; they thrive in clutter. Also, the name “bed bug” is misleading as they can thrive in kitchens, restrooms, movie theaters, jetliners, etc. Those looking to travel, rent, or buy a home can consult the “Bed Bug Registry” at bedbugregistry.com for user reviews.
Here is the Top 20 List of Worst Bed Bug Cities in the US:
1. Chicago (+1)
2. Detroit (+1)
3. Los Angeles (+2)
5. Cincinnati (-4)
6. Columbus, Ohio
7. Washington, D.C. (+1)

Body of Deceased Lottery Winner Exhumed – Now Ruled Homicide
The late Urooj Khan, a lottery winner who suddenly died at age 46 before collecting $425,000 in a lottery prize, was exhumed this past Friday as part of a police investigation into the cause of his death.
Khan had won a million dollar lottery and elected for the lump sum payout of $425,000 only to die one after electing the payout. Originally thought to have died of natural causes, relatives requested additional testing.
The family concerns were warranted as the toxicology reports found cyanide in his tissue and organs in amounts sufficient to induce death. Khan’s death has now been ruled a homicide. However, it isn’t known how the cyanide got into Khan’s body as the poison can be breathed in or ingested by food or drink.
His wife, Shabana Ansari, was interviewed by police for four hours and maintains she was not involved in Khan’s death.
On The Web:
‘Saturday Night Live’ returned to live television after a long holiday hiatus and quickly jumped into current events. Sometimes it’s just too easy. Easy as in poking fun of Lance Armstrong’s flip-flopping and recent appearance on the ‘Oprah’ show.
Armstrong has been in the news headlines with questions of doping and other performance enhancing methods. He recently appeared on the Oprah show in which he apologized and somewhat confessed, the jury is still out on that debatable interview.
SNL featured a Piers Morgan news styled interview in which Armstrong, played by Jason Sudeikis, used short answers and generally avoided questions. Armstrong’s character also apologized to viewers who were not able to tune into the Oprah Winfrey Network and watch his interview. The SNL video clip quickly went viral and can be seen on major news webpages and Hulu.
Lance Armstrong is a seven time Tour de France champion, he is also a cancer survivor.
