    • Fake Florida doctor who ‘enhanced’ buttocks with cement, caulking gets 10 years for manslaughter

      From a Florida prison in November 2011, Shatarka Nuby penned a letter to the state’s health department about her cosmetically enhanced buttocks. Her rear end had hardened and turned black, she wrote. Side effects from the years-old injections left the mother of three feeling sick. And she claimed her surgeon — Oneal Ron Morris — was the same faux cosmetic doctor that police had arrested and accused of pumping a near-lethal formula of cement, mineral oil, bathroom caulking and Fix-a-Flat tire sealant into other women’s bodies. Her patients called her “Duchess.” Officials began investigating and interviewed Nuby. But four months later, she was dead. The official cause of death was respiratory failure

    • WWE's Paige: 'I wanted to physically harm myself' after photo leak

      "Not only for what millions was telling me but because my family and my husband were suffering the same fate from the internet because of my mistake," she wrote in a statement released on Twitter on Monday night. Paige, a two-time Divas champion who has been sidelined following neck surgery, acknowledged last week that "personal and private photos of mine were stolen" and shared without her consent. In Monday night's tweet, she spoke about the harm and the hurt the incident brought. "The one thing that was the hardest was thinking 'my husband is going to leave me' 'my family will disown me' but I'm blessed beyond words to have a family and a husband that stuck by me because they know who I am," she wrote.

    • Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban Make Airport Style a Family Affair

      After yesterday’s heated debate over whether girls should wear leggings at the airport, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban appear to be schooling their kids in the art of polished travel style. When the actress and crooner touched down in Sydney, Australia, earlier this morning, their two daughters sported cleverly layered looks that incorporated—but covered up—the activewear silhouette. Sunday Rose, 8, shimmered in a ballet pink tulle frock offset by bright blue leggings underneath. Faith, 6, followed suit in an eyelet flutter-sleeve look layered over stretchy pants. In a nod to their dad’s country music roots, both chose matching denim vests and ankle boots with Western-inspired stud and fringe

    • Red Bull heir enjoys jet-set life 4 years after hit-and-run

      The Ferrari driver who allegedly slammed into a motorcycle cop, dragged him along the road and then sped away from the mangled body took just hours to find, as investigators followed a trail of brake fluid into the gated estate of one of Thailand's richest families. When Vorayuth, 31, has been called in to face authorities, he hasn't shown up, claiming through his attorney that he's sick or out of the country on business. Within weeks of the accident, The Associated Press has found, Vorayuth was back to enjoying his family's jet-set life, largely associated with the Red Bull, an energy drink brand co-founded by his grandfather.

    • Reheating Rice Can Give You Food Poisoning If You Don't Do This

      Although reheating takeout when you're too busy to cook is one of life's great pleasures, leftover rice can actually be scarily bad for you, the NHS say. Because if you didn't already know, you can get a pretty grim case of food poisoning from eating reheated rice; it's not the reheating that causes the problem, but instead the way the rice has been stored after being cooked the first time. So uncooked rice often contains spores (cells capable of reproducing quickly) of Bacillus cereus — a bacteria strand that can cause food poisoning — that can survive when rice is cooked. And if the rice is left standing at room temperature after it's been boiled, the spores can grow into bacteria, which will

    • Tiger Woods at the Masters? NBC golf analyst Brandel Chamblee wants to believe

      NBC golf analyst Brandel Chamblee wants to believe the Instagram chatter that Tiger Woods has been working avidly with instructor Chris Como in hopes of playing the Masters, which begins next week. "If you can believe what you read on social media, his coach has been down there with him in Palm Beach and he has been hitting lot of golf balls," Chamblee said Tuesday on a media conference call. "The way I understand it, he has been practicing quite diligently. It wouldn't surprise me if Tiger shows up at Augusta National." Said fellow NBC analyst Colin Montgomerie: "He is still the needle in the game and it would be great to see him play. … But if he does, I hope he can compete and that we're not

    • 'Dreamer's' post on paying taxes goes viral

      PHOENIX — On Sunday morning, Arizona State University junior Belen Sisa posted a simple Facebook update that she paid her taxes. Sisa, 23, is a "dreamer" — her parents visited the U.S. from Argentina when she was 6 and overstayed their visas — but she is shielded from deportation by President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. DACA allows young undocumented immigrants without serious criminal records who were brought to the U.S. as children to register their personal information with the government, and in exchange receive federal work permits and a two-year reprieve from the threat of deportation, which allows them to get a Social Security number and a driver's license.
