  • 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Stars Viciously Brawl, Cops Called

    1 3/23/2017 12:40 AM PDT 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' stars Peter Thomas and Matt Jordan threw everything that wasn't nailed down during a radio interview that looked more like UFC 210. They dislike each other intensely, so it seems the interview was destined for disaster, and they did not disappoint. Matt threw a water bottle at Peter, then charged him. We're told they locked up and Peter scored a takedown, because station staff broke it up. It was so bad, cops were called and took an assault report from Peter against Matt. Here's the bad news. The interview was not live and it looks like the station isn't going to air it. 

  • New Zealand fisherman 'trembling' during great white shark encounter

    March 22 (UPI) -- A New Zealand fisherman captured video of his encounter with a large great white shark that stalked his boat for several minutes. Sean McCormack said he was fishing in the early afternoon in his small boat off Red Beach, north of Auckland, when the shark swam up to his boat and took the burley bag he was using to lure fish to his location. McCormack said the shark, which he captured on video, appeared to be about as long as his 12-foot boat. "It totally freaked me out," he told One News Now. "I was trembling like a schoolgirl. I was totally adrenalized, mate." He said the shark broke his line, stole his catch, and knocked into his boat with its tail before swimming away. McCormack

  • Lincoln was a Republican, slavery is bad - and more discoveries by President Obvious

    Seeking and winning the presidency has been a magical voyage of discovery for Donald Trump.

  • Dear Abby: Friends are ignoring the loss of our cat

    DEAR ABBY: We recently lost one of our cherished pets, our oldest cat, Mandy. We never had children, so our pets ARE our children. I get that people who have never had pets don’t understand the joy and unconditional love they can bring. But I don’t understand why people we thought were close to us haven’t acknowledged our loss in any way. Some of them have - or had - pets at one time. A few did send cards or emails, and they were so appreciated. Their kindness will never be forgotten. Mandy wasn’t sickly. She just stopped eating one day. When we took her to the vet a few days after trying everything we could think of, the diagnosis was kidney cancer. A couple of days later we had to make the
