OK! magazine claims Matthew Perry may allegedly blast Matt LeBlanc in his new memoir. A source tells the magazine, “Matt is in for a rude awakening. The full story of that betrayal hasn’t been told yet, and Matthew is not going to pull any punches. It’s been 18 years, but the Joey thing still stings Matthew and the other cast members because it was the only time one of them went behind everybody else’s back and tried to break up the act. Matthew didn’t bring it up on the reunion last year, but he’s ready to set the record straight and isn’t going to hold back. He didn't feel like any of them supported him, and it was a bitter reminder of how much he suffered back when they were shooting the show. They weren't as close as people think. Their characters were so tight, but the reality is there was a lot of tension and jealousy."

I work as an assistant principal at a well-known school in the area. On Friday, I received a complaint from a parent. She was upset because a student made a joke about her child's outfit. We have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to bullying. I didn't think the joke was that bad. I went and saw what the student was wearing. I have to be honest when I tell you that I believe part of the blame lies with the parent. She should have never allowed her child to wear that outfit to school. It didn't violate any dress code policy, but when you wear an outfit like that you're asking for trouble. I believe the mother, and not the jokester, is the one who is responsible. Should I suspend the jokester or not?
