Police Boot Granny From Hotel For Giving Bad Review On Hotels.com: WXIA says Susan Leger was booted from a Baymont Inn and Suites Hotel, in Helen, Georgia, because she gave them an average review on hotels.com. Hotels.com sent her an email that asked, “What went wrong?” Susan gave a three-star review before writing, “Rundown. Pool’s not open. Toilet doesn't flush well.” Minutes later, the hotel manager called and kicked her out. The 63 year-old grandmother and her six-year-old granddaughter were in their pajamas when the police banged on the door and escorted them out. The officers helped Susan find another room at a nearby hotel. Hotel Manager Danny Vyas says he called 911. "At the end of the 911 call, I said she’s not happy with the room. That’s why we had to let her go.'
These Thanksgiving Turkeys Cost $13 A Pound: The NY Post says wealthy people will be eating KellyBronze turkeys this year. The turkeys cost $13 a pound compared to regular grocery store turkeys, which cost $1.36 a pound. A large KellyBronze turkey costs well over $300.
Turkey farmer Paul Kelly owns a farm in Virginia and says his birds are taken to the table at six months instead of three. “They have all that maturity. They’ve laid all their muscle down, and they’ve laid all the fat down, so you haven’t got to baste them or brine them. The flesh is somewhat marbled with fat, in the same way that ultra premium beef is, meaning they’re naturally juicy and cook in half the time of typical turkey. It’s kind of like Wagyu. It just makes it very, very tender.''
Hollywoodlife.com says Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian have officially gone public with their romance. They were spotted holding hands yesterday in Palm Springs, California. A source tells US Weekly Magazine, “Kim lights up when she’s around Pete. Their chemistry is off the charts and getting stronger each passing day. No one can remember seeing her smile and laugh so much around a guy. He just has this ability to hold Kim’s total attention and have her in stitches with his hilariously dry sense of humor. He’s so down to earth and humble, which she really digs.”
A second source says, “They have a unique chemistry that she hasn’t had with anyone else. They have such a strong connection. She gets butterflies around him and he makes her laugh — and that’s more than she can say for other guys.”
Ric Flair tells the Wooooo Nation Podcast that Hulk Hogan is having serious health issues. "He's having some really bad health issues but he keeps up with me. We support each other, good and bad.

I don't remember seeing them because I was in a coma but they made the effort to go. Those are the kind of things that mean a lot."
Carole Baskin tells ITV that her missing husband, Don Lewis, is alive and well in Costa Rica. "One of the really exciting things that came out of Tiger King 2 is that they produced a letter from Homeland Security and it says that a special agent in charge with the FBI at Homeland Security reached out to the sheriff's detective George Fernandez, which means this had to have happened after 2002, because Homeland Security wasn't even around until 2002. And they said that my husband, Don Lewis, is alive and well in Costa Rica. And yet all of this hay has been made about me having something to do with his disappearance, when Homeland Security has known where he is at least since back then."
Alicia Silverstone tells Glamour magazine that she stole all of her costumes from ''Clueless.'' "After the movie… I ran home with a lot of the clothes and I tried to wear them in real life but then I realized I’m not Cher, so this doesn’t make any sense. I still wanna just put on some jeans and a T-shirt and my tennis shoes, so… I didn’t find a way to use those in my real life and I gave them all away. But, over time I have grown to really appreciate fashion and the art of it, and as long as it’s done responsibly."

My teenagers are excited to see the new Ghostbusters movie this weekend. My 7 year-old is not because he thinks a ghost lives in his closet. He's always running into our bedroom whenever he hears something go bump in the night. It doesn't help that his brothers tease him. My husband says we should not allow him to sleep in bed with us because he needs to be a 'man' and stay in his own room. I see nothing wrong with comforting him. How would you handle the situation? Should we allow our child to sleep with us?
