Mama June Shannon may just need to change her name to Hot Mama June. After undergoing weight loss surgery, the matriarch of the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family will reveal her new body on the reality TV screen in WE tv’s new docu-dramedy Mama June: From Not to Hot. But first, her daughters Alana (known better to fans as “Honey Boo Boo”) and Lauryn (AKA “Pumpkin”) stopped by Entertainment Tonight to explain how their mother went from 460 lbs. to a size 4. “She had gastric sleeve back in May of 2015, and then she slowly started losing weight, and the reason she got the gastric sleeve was because she hit a plateau - she couldn’t lose any weight,” Pumpkin explained of her mom’s surgery to make her stomach smaller.
Records from former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s divorce case show how he has been able to collect hefty benefit checks from the federal government after serving time in prison for looting hundreds of thousands of dollars from his campaign fund. Most of that - about $100,000 - is workers' compensation and tax-free, according to Chicago attorney Barry Schatz, who is representing Jackson in his divorce proceeding. The rest of Jackson's benefits are Social Security Disability Insurance payments, some of which may be taxable, Schatz said. The payments flow to Jackson because he has bipolar disorder and depression - the issues that led to an extended leave from Congress in 2012 - and those conditions have been exacerbated by a "very difficult, contentious divorce" from former Chicago Ald.
DEAR AMY: My former wife and I divorced after 26 years of marriage. She has refused to communicate with me. We have twins in their late 20s - a daughter and a son. Although neither is married, each wants to eventually get married, and so I anticipate weddings. Our son graduates law school this spring. He may feel awkward about having both his parents attend his graduation. Last year, he went through a terrible crisis - the death of one of his best friends. It was terribly hard on him, yet his mom never talked to me about how we might help him. Such occasions - a grief-stricken child, and a grown child’s life event - call for parents to come together. I want to talk with my former wife about the

Twenty-two hours into a 24-hour-long marathon video game session, Twitch streamer Brian Vigneault, 35, got up to take a smoke break. He never returned to his computer. His fans, mainly fellow gamers who watched Vigneault play the online skirmisher “World of Tanks,” wondered if Vigneault had fallen asleep. Although it was around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, falling asleep in the afternoon would not have been completely unexpected. Vigneault, under the online nickname Poshybrid, would play “World of Tanks” for extreme lengths of time to raise donations for charity. When a moderator messaged Vigneault a few hours after his abrupt disappearance, a Virginia Beach detective responded via Vigneault’s computer
Police investigating the slayings of two girls in Indiana released evidence today in hopes it will lead to the killer's capture. The evidence was a video clip retrieved from the cellphone of one of the victims. When police played some audio from the clip at a news conference in the town of Delphi this morning, reporters heard just three words from a deep voice: "Down the hill." The audio quality is not great, but police said it's enough for someone to recognize the person's voice. Investigators believe the clip was recorded as criminal behavior was about to occur. "Libby had the presence of mind to turn on her video camera," Indiana State Police spokesman Capt. David Bursten told reporters, referring
