The Alabama hostage situation, in which a man held a boy in a bunker for seven days, ended with the suspect dead and the 5-year-old safely rescued.
Reports of an explosion at Jimmy Lee Dykes’ Midland City property came first on Monday afternoon, followed shortly by media reports of his death.
At a hastily organized roadside press conference near the crime scene, FBI agent Steve Richardson said negotiations had deteriorated over the last 24 hours.
He said they entered the bunker shortly after 3 p.m. fearing the child was “in imminent danger,” because they’d seen Dykes, 65,More >
Naomi Riches says Casey Anthony wants her dead.
She also wants $3 billion for her troubles.
The Pennsylvania woman sued Casey Anthony for $3 billion, according to reports, claiming the accused child murderer is “an Illuminati actress” who made threats to kill her and who caused her “severe psychological damage.”
She also claims Casey is “in cahoots” with Nancy Grace and the U.S. government.
The lawsuit says “Casey Anthony called my house August 2011 and told me that my life was being exploited and that I was a hated nation wife.”
“She told me she would kill me just as theyMore >
“Do you like it when he’s rough?”
With these words, and accompanying visuals, Barbara Walters made Elisabeth Hasselbeck crack up, viewers scratch their heads and Whoopi Goldberg’s “eyes bleed.”
The 82-year-old was yammering about sex this morning The View, inspired by the erotic novel series 50 Shades of Grey, in which a 20-something girl starts a relationship with an attractive, wealthy man who’s into bondage and S&M.
Suffice to say, it was an awkward:
Hasselbeck, a married mother of three, sort of dodged the question by saying she’s on aMore >

The Los Angeles County Coroner has released the official cause of death for Whitney Houston.
According to the report, the singer passed away due to an “accidental drowning” that was related to heart disease and also the presence of cocaine in her system.
An insider tells TMZ that it’s “very possible” the heart attack caused Whitney to pass out and fall under the water. It’s also likely this was triggered by the use of cocaine. It should be noted, however, that no cocaine was found in the hotel room where Houston passed away.
Law enforcement officials have said from the beginning that noMore >
Lindsay Lohan hosted Saturday Night Live last night, and … meh.
We wouldn’t say she bombed last by any means, but we expected better. Maybe all the hype and expectations were just too much, or the show itself just isn’t that good.
In any case, it left something to be desired from start to finish.
Several late changes – such as ditching a singing monologue in favor of one with cameos from Jimmy Fallon and Jon Hamm (above) – may not have helped matters.
Some critics and fans are calling it an epic fail (EW asks in its headline if she wasMore >

So much for a pretend elopement. Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush have now gone through a fake breakup.
According to Life & Style, Bush has “been seeing” a Kim lookalike, despite the fact that Kardashian believed these two would give it another shot after she divorced Kris Humphries.
“Reggie’s her one true love,” an anonymous friend told the tabloid. “He could easily fire things up with Kim now, but he’s chosen not to.”
But don’t cry too hard for Kim, people! Star Magazine claims she has many other options, namely a Saudi billionaire who gave her his phone number when she was in Dubai lastMore >
Kirk Cameron’s recent comments to Piers Morgan on gay marriage and homosexuality in general – he’s not a fan, to put it mildly – are causing quite a stir.
Cameron, a born-again Christian, said on Friday’s show that he does not support gay marriage, and when it comes to homosexuality in general, he said:
“I think that it’s … unnatural. I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
Piers then noted that if one of his sons told him he was gay, he’d say it’s great as long as he was happy, and askedMore >
Rush Limbaugh is literally paying for the comments he made this week about Sandra Fluke.
On Thursday, the Georgetown University Law School student – who has been a vocal supporter of the Obama administration’s decision to require insurance companies, even those used by religiously-affiliated employers, to cover the cost of contraception – was denied a chance to speak at a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing on religious liberty and birth control.
She proceeded, though, to take part in a press conference in which Fluke toldMore >
