Down ‘N Dirty in 1992

What would a Dirt Alert from 1992 sound like? PAULA ABDUL and actor EMILIO ESTEVEZ were married in a judge’s chambers in Santa Monica, CA this day, 1992.


Celebrities Behaving Badly

JOHNNY MANZIEL isn’t the type to let a grand jury indictment get in the way of a good time.

TMZ.com reports Manziel flew from Texas back to Cleveland, Ohio, Tuesday night so he could check out (wait for it…) JUSTIN BIEBER in concert! The duo posed for a selfie together just hours after it was decided that he’d face misdemeanor assault charges for allegedly attack ex-girlfriend COLLEEN CROWLEY.

Manziel swears he’s innocent


Are There Raccoons Living In Your Walls?

The “Property Brothers” are known for making fixer-uppers into dream homes, but there’s a lot of disgusting stuff along the way.

Yahoo.com reports that JONATHON and DREW SCOTT have found everything from petrified rats to live raccoons in the walls they destroy, not to mention other crazy items like an Antique Playboy magazine collection!


Are the Kardashians on the “Brink of Financial Ruin”?

The KARDASHIAN / JENNER family seems absurdly rich . . . especially since it’s still unclear what they actually DO.

But an amusing report from Radar Online claims they’re “on the brink of financial ruin.” Apparently the Kardashians are spending money like crazy, and yet their ‘brand’ is fading. (–We can only hope, right?)

They say ratings for their shows are down, and they’re mismanaging their finances. Of course, this is probably a BIG exaggeration as some reports say the family is worth around $300 MILLION, but if it’s true that Kim “blows $300,000 a month on shopping”, well yeah, that isn’t sustainable for anyone. (–Don’t worry, Kanye will come to the rescue.)

Sheepdog Hates New Job, Travels 240 Miles Back Home

On April 8th, a sheepdog was sent away by its Welsh owners to work on a farm in Cumbria, but didn’t like his new assignment and bailed.

The dog, named Pero, escaped the farm and walked 240-miles back home!  He arrived home on April 20th. The family has no idea how Pero made the long trip or what he ate, but when he got home he wasn’t hungry or weak – he was in great shape!

Pero’s original family says he can stay with them because it wouldn’t be fair to send him away again.


Check Your Yard For Hand Grenades!

Yard work can be a pain in the keister but it’s even worse when you hit a grenade!

JOE PRIESTER of Richmond, Virginia, was chopping ivy with an ax near the bottom of a tree on his property. He said hit something really hard a couple of times.

Quote, “I pull it out and I’m looking at it and I can’t believe what I’m seeing… It looked like a grenade. I saw the pin was on it so I said the best thing to do was to call it in. I was in shock.”

Police and the bomb squad showed up and defused the grenade. They said it was most likely live and had been there for a very long time. Thankfully, no one was hurt.

I Thought That Men Are Bad At Directions

A 12-year-old girl in New York set out to run a 5K and accidentally kept on going.

LEEADIANEZ RODRIGUEZ mistakenly lined up for the wrong race during the Rochester Regional Health Flower City Challenge. Instead of completing a 5K –or three-point-one miles– she ended up doing a half-marathon, which is thirteen-point-one miles.

The girl’s mother got worried when she didn’t show up at the finish line. But, a short time later they were reunited. Rodriguez finished the half-marathon in 2:43:31.

She says she realized at the halfway point that she was in the wrong race –but decided to keep going anyway.


A Guy Doesn’t Realize His Bag of Meth Is Stuck to His Sweaty Back

This is a magnificently embarrassing way to get arrested and you can blame it all on back sweat.

A 36-year-old guy from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada was at a hotel with his girlfriend this weekend and they got into a very loud fight. The police wound up coming to their room to check it out.

The guy let them in, and when he turned around, the cops spotted a bag stuck to his sweaty back. It turned out to be a bag of CRYSTAL METH, which the guy clearly didn’t realize was stuck there.

The cops searched the room and found more drugs and a knife. He was arrested for drug possession and making threats.  Stupid Criminals!!!


Three Guys Float to Cuba to Avoid Jail in America

Three guys from Cuba got arrested in New Orleans back in October for credit card fraud.

Their names are Luis Rivera-Garcia, Juliet Estrada-Perez, and Enrique Gonzalez-Torres. They made bail but they KNEW they’d be going to prison for it. So early last week, they got their hands on a small boat and tried to float BACK to Cuba, which you don’t see very often. Usually it’s the other way around.

Well guess what? Their boat capsized 40 miles north of Havana, and they got rescued by a Disney CRUISE ship which is about as American as apple pie and deep-fried Twinkies!!

The cruise ship ended up dropping them off in Key West, Florida, and U.S. Marshals were there waiting to arrest them. So they’re all back in jail now, facing charges for trafficking stolen credit cards.

Is Jessica Simpson’s Husband And the Nanny?

It’s happening to everybody these says, so why not JESSICA SIMPSON?

“OK!” magazine says her husband ERIC JOHNSON might be having an affair with the nanny. And Jessica already knows about it, so this might be the end of the marriage.

Somehow, somebody recently saw Eric and the nanny disappear into the bushes for TWO HOURS. When they came out they were, quote, “sharing a good laugh about something.” The nanny is 28, and Jessica is an ARCHAIC 35. Eric is 36.


Will Prince’s Paisley Park Estate Become the Next Graceland?

Britain’s sometimes right, sometimes wrong “Sun” tabloid claims PRINCE’s huge, $10 million estate could become the next Graceland.

The place goes by the name Paisley Park, and it’s located in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Prince’s brother-in-law Maurice Phillips told them it’s going to be turned into “a museum in Prince’s memory.” Quote, “It’d be for the fans. He was all about the fans, this would remember his music, which is his legacy.

It’s kind of amusing that Prince has only been dead a week, he didn’t even have a will or leave any other instructions, and yet there’s somehow all these plans to turn his studio into some sort of attraction.


Did Chris Christie’s Wife Roll Her Eyes at Donald Trump?

There’s nothing conclusive here, but a lot of people think CHRIS CHRISTIE’s wife Mary rolled her eyes at her husband’s new BFF DONALD TRUMP the other night.

The Donald attacked HILLARY CLINTON, claiming the only reason she’s getting votes is because she’s a woman. CHRIS CHRISTIE’s wife was standing behind him, and a lot of people think she rolled her eyes.

(Here’s video, so you can judge for yourself.)

Walk, I Mean Run On Water

REZA BALUCHI, an ultra-marathon runner from Florida, had to be rescued by the Coast Guard for a second time.

Baluchi was “running” in an inflatable bubble and was expecting to be at sea for at least five months. His intentions were good, trying to raise money for children in need and to “inspire those that have lost hope for a better future.”

The Coast Guard told him NOT to start his run “because your vessels and the conditions under which you are attempting to complete your voyage to Bermuda is unsafe.”

In 2014 they got a call of a disoriented man in a bubble off the coast of Miami and saved him then. This time they stopped him from continuing because he disobeyed their orders. Unfortunately the taxpayers are footing the bill for his rescue.

A Robber Ran From the Cops and Hopped a Fence . . . the White House Fence

I always thought the dumbest place a criminal could hide when they’re running from the cops was a police station, but this guy found one that’s even dumber.

guy robbed a building in Washington D.C. yesterday, and took off running from the cops. About a block later, he tried to get away by hopping a fence. It just so happened that it was the fence to the WHITE HOUSE!!! Stupid Criminals!!!

Obviously he did NOT get away; the Secret Service quickly swarmed and took him down. PRESIDENT OBAMA was actually in the White House at the time, so the entire place had to be locked down until they made sure the guy wasn’t a threat.

His name and the charges he’s facing haven’t been released, but he was handed over to the police.


A Guy Ate 22 of the World’s Hottest Peppers in 60 Seconds

Carolina Reapers are the hottest peppers in the world.

And 31-year-old Wayne Algenio in New York broke a world record on Sunday by eating 22 of them in a minute. He ate 119 grams worth, which is just over a quarter-pound. It smashed the old record of 70 grams.

Just so you know, the Carolina Reaper has 2.2 million Scoville heat units. The Habanero chili has only 100,000 heat units. So the Carolina Reaper is 22 times hotter than Habanero.

Then Wayne had to go a minute without puking or drinking anything.

You can see a video here. (Warning: Language)

Kelly Ripa Returned To “Live”

KELLY RIPA returned to “Live!” yesterday, and talked openly about feeling disrespected by how ABC told her that MICHAEL STRAHAN was leaving for “Good Morning America”.

Kelly and Michael seemed fine, but now Michael’s last day is May 13th, three months earlier than expected. Apparently both Kelly and Michael were eager to move on, professionally and personally.


Prince And The Purple Sausage Tribute

A British butcher paid tribute to PRINCE by creating PURPLE SAUSAGES.

There’s just one problem. Prince was a vegan. The butcher says he didn’t know Prince was vegan, and that he didn’t mean to be disrespectful.

Naturally, PETA is all up in arms. Quote, “Prince was an outspoken vegan who would never have gone near a butcher’s shop. And he certainly would not have wanted his name exploited to sell novelty sausages.”

Prince Didn’t Have a Will . . . Who’s Gonna Inherit His Fortune?

Word has it that PRINCE didn’t have a will when he died, and he wasn’t married, he didn’t have kids, and his parents are dead.

So it looks like his siblings would be next in line to inherit his fortune. He has a sister Tyka, along with three half-brothers and two half-sisters. Under Minnesota law, half-siblings are considered equal to full siblings in cases like this.

The size of Prince’s estate isn’t clear either. Different reports put his net worth somewhere between $150 million and $300 million. Plus, there’s a good chance that could grow another $100 million in the aftermath of his death.


Tom Brady Will Have to Serve His Four-Game Suspension After All

TOM BRADY got some bad news yesterday because ‘Deflate Gate’ is back!!!

A federal appeals court has upheld and reinstated the NFL’s four-game suspension, so Tom WILL have to accept the punishment.

Tom must have seen this coming because he re-worked his contract with the Patriots. Basically his salary for the upcoming year was reduced from $9 million to $1 million. And in exchange, he got a $28 million signing bonus.

Pretty smart, under the old deal, a four-game suspension would mean he’d have to forfeit $2.1 million. With the new terms, he’s only losing $235,000. The league is only able to deduct from a player’s salary, not any bonuses.


Has Martin Sheen Given Up on Charlie?

CHARLIE SHEEN has had his dad’s support through a lot of really bad times.

However, now that he’s accused of threatening to have his ex-fiancée MURDERED, he may have just lost that support.

A source told Radar Online, quote, “Martin’s endured so much pain over Charlie. But when it reaches the point where Charlie might be engaging in evil, criminal behavior, it cuts him to the bone.”

Martin is torn though, because he feels some responsibility for all this chaos. Quote, “Some people say Charlie is a monster . . . his folks carry guilt they may have played a part.”

It’s Finger Lickin’ Good!

A guy in Yellowknife, Canada really went out of his way to give his wife a special –and delicious– 15th anniversary.

You see, MIKE HOVAK drove 900-miles to pick up Kentucky Fried Chicken for his wife, ANGELA.

That’s the round-trip distance to the nearest KFC, located in High Level, Alberta. The tradition of eating KFC to celebrate their love goes all the way back to their wedding reception. But, back then, they lived in a different town which had a KFC nearby.

Since he drove so far to get the chicken, Mike made it worth his while and bought fifteen buckets, which cost $600-dollars. He says it was worth every penny.


A Man in a “This Guy Needs a Beer” Shirt Got a DUI

Ironic t-shirts and police mugshots are a match made in heaven.

29-year-old Joshua Tackett of Kensington, New Hampshire was driving drunk on Friday night. He lost control, swerved off the road, hit a wall, hit a lamp post, and then came to a stop, right in front of a police station.

So the good news for Josh is that help came outside right away. The bad news is that the cops arrested him for drunk driving.

And in his mugshot, you can see he was wearing a t-shirt that said, quote, “This guy needs a beer.”

I think he appreciated the irony because he’s smiling in his mugshot. His face was pretty banged up too. Click here to see his mugshot.


Crocodile Drags Australian Teenager From Camping Tent

A family fishing and camping trip in Australia’s Northern Territory turned terrifying Monday when a crocodile snuck out of a creek near their campsite and dragged a 19-year-old from his tent.

The 13-foot-long croc yanked Peter Rowsell out of his tent by his right foot at around 4:30 in the morning. Peter says he was “very lucky” because he managed to kick the croc away with his other foot.

Peter is currently suffering from shock, but is in stable condition at a local hospital with puncture wounds on his lower right leg

The Latest on the Investigation Into Prince’s Death

It’s been four days since PRINCE died, and the cause of death is still a mystery.

The coroner completed the autopsy on Friday, but the results are still pending because the toxicology results could take four to six weeks to come back. In a press conference, the sheriff said there were “no obvious signs of trauma” on his body, and that they have no “reason to believe it was a suicide.”

For now it seems like a lot of theories floating around on what lead to Prince’s death. TMZ claims Prince overdosed on Percocet the week before he died, and that’s why his plane had to make that emergency landing.

“Entertainment Tonight” says he had a bad case of the flu that turned into walking pneumonia. And frankly, there’s a decent chance that SEVERAL of these things could’ve contributed to his death.

Prince’s body was released to the family, and he was cremated. There’s no word on where the remains will be kept.


Kelly and Michael Will Be Back on “Live!” Tomorrow

KELLY RIPA will return to “Live!” tomorrow morning.

She sent an email to the staff that said, quote, “We are a family and I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning.”

There have been all sorts of rumors about how furious Kelly is that MICHAEL STRAHAN is leaving for “Good Morning America”, especially since he kept her in the dark about it until the last second.

But there’s also been talk that they couldn’t stand each other behind the scenes, so maybe she should be happy she’s getting a new co-host.

Meanwhile, OPRAH WINFREY weighed in on the situation and tells TMZ.com that she’s “really excited” for MICHAEL STRAHAN, but admits Kelly Ripa shouldn’t have been the last to know her co-host was moving on.


Kanye West Gives ‘Imma Let You Finish’ Speech At Friend’s Wedding

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian attended their friend, nightclub guru Dave Grutman’s, wedding in Miami Beach this weekend.

But Kanye couldn’t just allow all of the attention to be on the bride and groom. According to TMZ, when it came time to give toasts to the bride and groom, Kanye interrupted the best-man’s speech….grabbing the mic….and going into his infamous “Imma let you finish speech.”

Kanye says he was just making fun of himself and the people at the reception DID laugh – including the bride and groom.

U.K. Teenager Passes Driving Test Despite Hitting A Deer

Tom Lo, a 17-year-old from the UK was taking his driver’s license test this week when a deer suddenly jumped in front of his car while he was going about 60 miles-per-hour.

The deer was killed, but Tom did such a great job handling the situation that the instructor let him continue his test!!!

In the end, Tom passed the test and was awarded his driver’s license.


A Man Tries to Pay His Bail With Counterfeit Money

20-year-old Jarious Mock was walking out of a club in Greensboro, North Carolina last week and he started yelling profanities at the police.

Some cops outside heard him and ran his name. It turned out he had a warrant for failure to appear in court for a marijuana case, so he was arrested. When he got to jail, he found out his bail was $200, which he paid on the spot.

There was only one problem: He paid with COUNTERFEIT money. And apparently it wasn’t even good counterfeit money, because the staff realized it was fake immediately.

Jarious was hit with a new charge of possession of counterfeit currency, and his bail was upped to $2,000. He didn’t have that cash on him, real or fake, so he’s still in jail!!!! Stupid Criminals!!!


The Brightest Smile In Crime!

Dental hygiene must be really important to this guy, whoever he is.

Ohio police are on the lookout for a suspect accused of stealing $25-hundred dollars’ worth of teeth whitening kits from stores in Columbus. $420-dollars’ worth of those kits were allegedly from one store alone.

The unidentified man’s crime spree only targeted Crest-brand whitening strips. Police say this many thefts of a single product is unusual. The investigation continues and they’re looking for a middle-aged man with a really bright smile!!!

The Texas Floods

The floods in southeast Texas trapped thousands of people over the past week, since it’s virtually impossible to drive anywhere. So these two people improvised.

Cathy Rude is a midwife in Katy, Texas and she needed to get to work this week . . . since, you know, babies don’t care about flooding. So she got her hands on a large inflatable SWAN, and rode it to work.

Meanwhile, about 300 miles north in Millsap, Texas, a guy named Cole Geeo figured out a way to help his neighbors who were trapped in their houses.

Cole has his own homemade monster truck, which he built out of his Ford F-150 pickup truck and 63-inch wheels. And it was tall enough to ride through the floods.

He helped neighbors get out of their homes and even helped people who’d gotten stuck driving on the roads.


A Guy Faked a Heart Attack in a Cab . . . Then Stole It

This seems like an unnecessarily complicated way to carjack someone, but then again, what do you expect when it comes to Stupid Criminals????

Larry Young and James Dunn got into a cab in Brooklyn last Saturday around 1:55 A.M. The driver started taking them to Staten Island, and one of them faked a HEART ATTACK.

So the driver pulled over to call 911. But before he could dial, the other guy grabbed him and pulled him OUT of the cab, and the two guys drove off. Once they were gone, the driver DID call 911, but to report the carjacking, not a heart attack.

The cops caught up with the guys and they tried to run one of the cops OVER. Luckily they missed, and crashed into a police car. So they were both arrested and charged with robbery, grand larceny, criminal mischief, and fleeing a police officer.  Stupid Criminals!!!


A High School Basketball Star Turned Out to be a 30-Year-Old Man

It’s pretty rare to find a high schooler who’s got a fixed-rate 30-year mortgage, but here you go.

A 17-year-old named Jonathon Nicola moved from South Sudan to Canada about six months ago, and started going to Catholic Central High School in Windsor, Ontario. He’s also 6-foot-9 and 202 pounds, so he quickly became the school’s star basketball player.

However, earlier this week, we all found out WHY he’s been dominating all the high school kids in basketball. It’s because he’s secretly a 30-YEAR-OLD MAN.

It’s not clear how the Canada Border Services Agency found out how old he really was, but they arrested him and are holding him in a detention center now. He has a hearing next week. (Click here to see a photo of Jonathan with his much shorter, younger teammates.)
