JOAN RIVERS Shuts Down CNN Interview For Being “Negative” (Video)

joan rivers on cnnCheck out this CNN interview that went horribly awry with Joan Rivers. She was promoting her book, ‘Diary of a Mad Diva.’ Apparently, she didn’t like her interviewer’s questions and ended up walking off the set DURING the interview. Take a look at the video after the break. RELATED: Kristen Stewart is suing mad over Joan River’s book.

Although Fredricka Whitfield, the interviewer, thought Joan was joking around in her response to some of her questions, it’s clear the comedienne took serious offense. I have to say, I’m surprised by Joan’s reaction. She’s spent her CAREER making fun of people and basically telling them to lighten up. Then she wants to get upset when someone asks her about her jokes? If anyone in Hollywood would have a tough skin by now, you’d think it would be Joan! Then again, knowing the comedienne, she probably realized walking off would just make for better TV (but it sounds like she was seriously steamed). Take a look.

Pele Dead? CNN Tweets Soccer Legend’s Demise; Rep Shoots Down Hoax

Pele is dead. At least one were to trust CNN, which many people understandably might given its (rapidly diminishing) reputation as a real news organization.

Fortunately for Pele, and unfortunately for CNN’s future, he is alive and well.

The 74-year-old soccer legend is doing just fine despite a death hoax that gained steam on Friday and apparently duped the CNN show New Day.

And as a result, the network erroneously tweeted that Pele died (see below):

  • Pele Dead?
  • Pele Pic

A rep for Pele quickly shot down this “breaking” story and confirmed he’s A-O-K.

A rep for CNN confirmed the network is going off the air in May. Just kidding!

Death hoaxes and false death rumors have always been around, but they’ve become 100 times common in the age of social media and declining journalism.

Just ask Pawn Stars’ Chumlee or Wayne Knight in the past month alone.

Check out our gallery of stars the Internet has fake-killed below:

Lil Wayne has been the subject of more than one death hoax over the years … and more than one actual near-death experience. So it’s believalble.

Jim Cantore Knees College Kid in Crotch, Finishes Freezing Weather Report

Look, drunk college kids. It’s totally freezing out.

Some of us may be able to sit inside and upload Kim Kardashian pictures everyday or scour the Internet for the sexiest shots of Kate Upton nude.

But others, such as The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore, are forced to stand outside in the rain and wind and sub-zero temperatures in order to make a living.

So can you please give these hard-working weathermen a break.

For your own sake, even, considering you may end up with a knee to the crotch if you attempt a winter weather videobomb similar to the idiot below.

Jimmy Lee Dykes Dead; Alabama Hostage Standoff Ends

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.

Jimmy Lee Dykes Mug Shot

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, carrying a firearm.

The boy, identified only as Ethan, was transported to a hospital, state Rep. Steve Clouse told CNN. He appeared physically unharmed, remarkably.

Witnesses said they heard a boom and gunfire. Ambulances arrived soon afterward.

The crisis began last Tuesday, January 29, when authorities say Dykes boarded a school bus and demanded that he take two boys between six and eight.

The bus driver, Charles Albert Poland, Jr., is hailed as a hero for putting himself between Dykes and the children. His valor cost him his life.

Dykes shot Poland several times before taking the 5-year-old from the bus.

“You didn’t deserve to die but you died knowing you kept everyone safe,” said a letter from a student that was read aloud at the bus driver’s funeral.

The bunker in which Jimmy Lee Dykes holed up was four feet underground. He equipped it with electricity and was said to have weeks of supplies stored.

Negotiators communicated to him through a ventilation pipe. Because of the risk of tornadoes in Alabama, bunkers are a relative fixture on the landscape.

Authorities sent Ethan’s prescription medicine into the property as well as items the boy requested like Cheez-Its snacks and a red Hot Wheels toy car.

There was open communication with Dykes, according to authorities, but he’d made few demands, making it unclear what he hoped to accomplish.

Some neighbors believed that Dykes may have timed the abduction to nearly coincide with a court appearance scheduled for the day after he shot Poland.

In December, Dykes was arrested for shooting a gun to frighten a neighbor.

For that incident and others, people who lived near Jimmy Lee Dykes were leery of him long before he became a hostage-taker who made national news.

They said he once beat a dog to death with a pipe, warned children they’d be shot for crossing onto his land and guarded his property with a flashlight and gun.

He was reportedly an anti-government loner who allegedly lost contact with an adult daughter years ago, according to people who lived near him.

Dawn Hochsprung, Sandy Hook Principal, Mourned After School Shooting

The astonishing Connecticut school shooting Friday claimed the lives of 26 people in Newtown, Conn., will be tragically remembered for the 20 small children slain.

Six adults were also killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School, however, notably Dawn Hochsprung, the principal and a committed educator beloved by students.

The principal died trying to protect the students she cared for every day.

Dawn Hochsprung Photo

The gunman, identified as 20-year-old Adam Lanza, started his rampage in the school’s main office, where Hochsprung had reportedly come out of a meeting.

Hochsprung was killed in the shooting, the horrific sound of which was reportedly broadcast over the school’s PA system around 9:40 a.m. Friday morning.

“She was really nice and fun, but was also very much a tough lady in the right sense,” Tom Prunty, a friend whose niece goes to Sandy Hook and was uninjured, told CNN.

“She was the kind of person you’d want to be educating your kids. And the kids loved her.”

In all, the death toll has reached 28 total: 20 children, six adults – including Dawn Hochsprung – Adam Lanza and his mother, Nancy, who he shot at another location.

Our hearts go out to all those impacted by the Connecticut school shooting.

Sage Stallone Cause of Death Remains Unknown



The mystery behind Sage Stallone’s death will, unfortunately, remain unsolved for at least another month or so.

An autopsy has been performed on the 36-year old son of actor Sylvester Stallone, who was found dead in his home on Friday, but a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Coroner tells CNN it still requires the results of toxicology tests. This typically takes six weeks. 

Sage S

Meanwhile, while initial reports claimed that Stallone passed away from some kind of drug overdose, his attorney says Sage never showed any signs of substance abuse. According to George Braunstein, Stallone didn’t even drink alcohol.

Along similar, conflicting lines, sources alleged that Stallone’s corpse has been lying in his bedroom for days… but Braunstein points to posts made on Sage’s Facebook page less than 24 hours prior to his death that counter those claims.

Sage appeared opposite his father in 1990’s Rocky V and again in 1996’s Daylight. He was actually set to marry his fiancee in Las Vegas this weekend.

Our thoughts go out to his family and we’ll update this story when more is known.

Arizona CNN GOP Debate Highlights: Ron Paul Style!



As has become our post-debate tradition, here’s a highlight reel of last night’s Republican CNN gathering in Arizona … featuring Ron Paul and only Ron Paul.

He may be marginalized by the mainstream media, but he’s shown no signs of quitting the GOP race, and was dishing it out left and right Wednesday.

Like a boss.

In particular, Paul took it to Rick Santorum so hard over his federal spending record, some are speculating that he made an alliance with Mitt Romney.

It’s probably just that – speculation – but make no mistake, the Texas Congressman was on his game at last night’s Republican debate. Take a look:
