• Katharine McPhee has 'no regrets' over cheating on husband with married man

    Katharine McPhee lives her life with no regrets. The "American Idol" runner-up spoke with Ocean Drive magazine about her scandalous love life saying she's learned from her past mistakes but has "no regrets." "I got married really young, and then divorced, and in the last couple of years, I felt like, 'Wow, this is what I should have been doing when I was 20 instead of planning a wedding,'" the 32-year-old told the magazine. McPhee married Nick Cokas who is 19-years older than the singer in 2008. They split in 2014, several months after news broke of McPhee's affair with her married "Smash" director Michael Morris. Morris is married to actress Mary McCormack and they have two children. "But I

  • Marine veterans sentenced for brutally beating man who had an affair with one of their wives

    Norman Early III pulled up to the Southern California house one night in September 2015 and sent a Snapchat message to the woman he went there to see, saying he was parked a short distance away. The two, who had known each other for several years, had crossed the line between friendship and flirtation while her husband was serving overseas. The woman responded, “Come in the door is unlocked.” The account from court documents reads like the start of slasher movie. Minutes after midnight on Sept. 20, 2015, Early walked into the modest corner house with a white iron fence and concrete pillars. It was her husband, however, who was using her cellphone to talk to him. Almost simultaneously, Early later

  • Fiancée: I ‘hated’ Michael Phelps during train-wreck phase

    Michael Phelps must be glad he took this “L.” Fiancée Nicole Johnson says breaking up with the swimming superstar was the best thing she did to save their relationship. “Michael and I both know that had we tried to have a child and get married in the previous time we were together, it probably would not have ended pretty,” the former beauty queen told Cosmopolitan. “We both had a lot of growing up to do. We both had a lot of learning about ourselves to do.” Johnson has been dating the world’s most decorated Olympian on and off since 2007. The couple split in 2011 before reconciling three years later, and the 31-year-old admitted she was no fan of Phelps during their separation. “There were definitely

  • Doctor’s Orders: Avoid These Seven Mistakes That Slow Your Metabolism

    If you find yourself gaining weight or your weight loss efforts have slowed down to a crawl, it’s time to look at what may be the problem - your metabolism. Metabolism, also known as basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the rate in which the body uses energy or calories to support keeping you alive such as our heart beating, blood circulating, respiration, temperature maintenance, nerve activity and so forth. Each individual’s rate of metabolism varies for several reasons: Age - BMR is higher when young and slows down with age as lean muscle mass declines and is replaced with fat mass Body composition - The more muscle mass, the higher the BMR. Men tend to have more muscle mass than women thus men burn

  • Aurora theater massacre survivors sued. How did their case collapse?

    They had survived brain damage, paralysis and the deaths of their children. For four years, they met in secret as a group. Now, they were finally prepared to settle with the Aurora movie theater that became the site of one of the deadliest massacres in U.S. history. Marcus Weaver kept a calm facade, but writhed with anxiety within. His dreams often return him to the theater, the sounds of gunshots and the feeling of his friend’s lifeless body slumped against him. After he escaped, he found a bullet hole in his shoulder. On a conference call, the federal judge overseeing the case told the plaintiffs’ attorneys that he was prepared to rule in the theater chain’s favor. He urged the plaintiffs to

  • ‘This could have been life and death’: Utility workers find signs children lived in sewers near Seattle

    Friday afternoon in Federal Way, Wash., a city to the south of Seattle, utility workers came across a manhole that refused to stay closed. Meter readers with Lakehaven Utility District first noticed the sewer cover left ajar. They pushed it shut; to fall down an open manhole, after all, could mean injury or worse. It proved to be a stubborn grate. Later in the day - twice - workers found the manhole open again. The third time, the meter readers had enough, summoning the Lakehaven sewer crew, who decided to investigate how a 80-pound metal slab could behave like a screen door with a busted latch. What the crew found was even stranger. At the bottom of the 14-foot descent was a cache of kids’ items,

  • The worst thing about yesterday’s big iPhone 7 specs leak

    Two separate reports emerged around the same time on Monday claiming to offer new details on a number of key iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus specs. According to the claims, much of what we've seen and heard thus far about Apple's upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is accurate. They'll feature a new 16nm Apple A10 processor, 2GB or 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM depending on the model, upgraded cameras including a new dual-lens setup on the iPhone 7 Plus, and bigger batteries. That's all good news. But there was some bad news to be found in yesterday's leak, and the more I think about it the more annoyed I get. DON'T MISS:  Leaked photos of iPhone 7 in blue remind us of the biggest remaining mystery Back in 2010 when Apple first introduced the iPhone 4, CEO Steve Jobs made a bold claim about the phone's new high-resolution display. He said that the screen, which Apple dubbed "Retina Display," would set the standard for smartphone displays for the next five years. Jobs was close. For about four years, iPhone displays were easily among the best in the business. What Apple didn't anticipate, however, was how fast rival smartphone companies would match and surpass Apple's screen tech. In 2015, Apple made no significant upgrades to the displays on its iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Having already begun to fall behind rivals that were selling 2K smartphones, Apple's handsets sported either a 5.5-inch 1080p resolution or a 4.7-inch display with just 720p resolution. Pixel count is just one characteristic that helps determine display quality, of course, but Apple had fallen behind elsewhere as well. In particular, Samsung's Super AMOLED screens had improved to the point where they were dramatically better than Apple's LCD panels in every way imaginable, from pixel density and color reproduction to contrast and black levels. According to rumors, Apple is sticking with LCD screens until next year, when the tenth-anniversary iPhone is set to switch to a curved OLED panel. Earlier rumors suggested that in the interim, however, Apple's new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus would feature higher-resolution screens . Multiple rumors pointed to a new 1080p screen on the iPhone 7, while the iPhone 7 Plus would seemingly get an upgraded 2K panel. The claims made sense. For 2016, Apple is widely expected to release new iPhone models with designs that are strikingly similar to iPhones from the past two years - like a second "S" upgrade, so to speak. With that in mind, it would make sense for Apple to add big upgrades wherever possible in order to prompt users to upgrade. The new iPhones will be more powerful, they'll include twice as much storage capacity at each tier , and some more nifty upgrades. But according to yesterday's leaks, the new iPhones will not in fact include higher resolution screens. As a refresher, here are the specs that were listed: iPhone 7 4.7-inch display, 1334 x 750 resolution Apple A10 processor 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM 1,960 mAh battery 12-megapixel f1.9 rear camera Improved water and dust resistance iPhone 7 Plus 5.5-inch display, 1080p resolution 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM 2,910 mAh battery Dual 12-megapixel f1.9 rear cameras As noted above, the smaller iPhone 7 will seemingly still have a 720p screen and the larger Plus model will still sport 1080p resolution. It would be great if these new leaks were wrong but with less than a week to go until Apple's big iPhone 7 unveiling  on September 7th, we likely would have already seen higher-resolution display panels leak if they were set to debut on the new iPhones. Apple is expected to release the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus on September 16th and by all accounts, they're going to be big upgrades. As a matter of fact, the iPhone 7 is going to be so much more exciting than you think . But sadly, upgraded displays don't appear to be in the cards this year, which means Apple falls further behind in this key area while rivals like Samsung continue to expand their lead .
