She’s spoiling herself with fancy new jewelry and fancy cars, and treating those around her — AE included — to lavish gifts and whatever daily expenses he wants to put on her tab. Everyone’s horrified by her behavior. She’s partying every night with this guy and shopping every day, and it’s burning a hole in her bank account. Everything is about making AE happy and she won’t hear a word against him. Cher is mad at them. She’s ready to cut them out of her life completely. She’s been hell-bent on marrying this guy and is speaking to her lawyers about adjusting her will to make A.E. her sole beneficiary. Cher doesn’t believe her sons should be counting her cash. If that’s their primary focus, they can kiss the entire pile goodbye.”

People Are 'Mewing'
The USA Today newspaper says 'Mewing' is trending on Tik Tok. 'Mewing' is defined as "the process of placing the tongue at the roof of the mouth and applying pressure to cause bony changes in the jawline.'' People are ''Mewing'' because they want their jawlines to be more defined like a supermodel's.
Dr. David Schaefer says, "You see these dramatic posts on social media where somebody looks like they have a frog neck and then all of a sudden they have this perfectly defined jawline. Whether that's also involving some selective editing, it's hard to tell. If it's not something you're going to be disciplined and keep up with, then you're not going to see sustained or long-term results and it's definitely a result that will go away once you stop doing the motion. It's not something that's risky. It's not something that's going to cause you harm. (But) I think people need to have guarded expectations."

I work at a very well-known restaurant in town and am going to demand that all servers split their tips evenly among one another because our female servers have an unfair advantage. They wear low-cut tops and earn better tips. I'm a guy and don't have that advantage. This weekend, I plan to call for all tips to be placed into one pot and then split evenly. My roommate thinks I'm crazy. I'm not. I'm just asking that everything be fair. Do you agree with my stance?
