Toyota invested $50 million in Tesla back in… more

Aaron Paul Calls Toys R Us Hypocrites for “Breaking Bad” Dolls Removal

Posted by tom_walsh on: October 24th, 2014 | General

Kid-friendly retailer Toys R Us announced that it’s pulling a series of “Breaking Bad” dolls from its shelves after a Florida mother petitioned against the collection and Aaron Paul is not happy.

After the store stated that it’s removing the toys due to the show’s mature plot, the actor who portrayed Jesse Pinkman on the hit AMC series shared his thoughts on Twitter.

“Wait, so @ToysRUs pulled all of the Breaking Bad figures from their shelves and still sells Barbie? Hmmmm…I wonder what is more damaging?” Aaron wrote.

He continued, “And what about all of the violent video games you sell @ToysRUs ? Do you still sell those? Florida mom really messed it up for everyone.”

After his initial tweets, Paul shared a link to a change.org petition calling for the continuation of “Breaking Bad” doll sales at Toys R Us. After he shared the link, more than 12,000 people headed over to the site to sign the document.

Paul isn’t the only “Breaking Bad” star to comment on the Florida mom’s work. Earlier this week, Bryan Cranston joked, “’Florida mom petitions against Toys ‘R Us over Breaking Bad action figures.’ I’m so mad, I’m burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest.”

“Honey Boo Boo” in Jeopardy Now That Mama June Is Dating Sex Offender

Posted by tom_walsh on: October 24th, 2014 | General

It’s never easy to move on from a devastating heartbreak and when Mama June split up with Sugar Bear in September, she didn’t know if she’d ever love again.

Thankfully, the “Honey Boo Boo” matriarch has already found a new man, however he’s not exactly an exemplary mate.

The TLC Network has learned that June Shannon’s new squeeze was convicted on charges of aggravated child molestation and did prison time ten years ago.

As a result, according to a spokesperson, “TLC is not currently in production on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series.”

However, earlier today (October 24) Mama June posted a message on her daughter’s Facebook page to deny the relationship. She wrote, “I want to make a post trying to clear up the rumors. Remember you can’t believe everything you read! I promise my kids r #1 priority over anything else. I would never put them in danger period over this or anything else they r my life.”

June also stated that the man in question, 53-year-old Mark McDaniel, is not her boyfriend and that she broke up with him a decade ago. “I left him 10 years ago for [his crimes] and I wouldn’t go back.”

Ariana Grande Wants a Boob Job to Please Big Sean, Tabloid Reports

Posted by Tyler Johnson on: October 24th, 2014 | Ariana Grande, Big Sean, Celebrity Gossip, General

Now that Ariana Grande and Big Sean are officially dating, it’s time for the tabloids to begin speculating about how dysfunctional their relationship is.

Big Sean, Ariana Grande

The latest BS comes from Life & Style who reports that Ari has made an appointment for a boob job, all because her boyfriend of like three months prefers larger breasts.

“Ariana wants bigger boobs and her people think she’s doing it for all the wrong reasons,” a source tells the magazine. “She wants to please Big Sean.”

Of course, it’s been widely rumored that Naya Rivera got a boob job just before Sean broke off their engagement back in April, so maybe Ariana should research her man’s past and preferences a bit before she goes under the knife for his sake. 

Insiders say that when discussing her implant plans with friends, Ariana doesn’t admit to doing it for Sean, but simply says she’s tired of having A-cups for fashion reasons.

Ari has yet to speak out on the rumors herself, but one of her reps issued a statement calling the reports “so fake.”

AHey, at least this time it’s a rumor that doesn’t involve Ariana being a diva. That’s gotta be a nice change of pace. 

Hot Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande is such a young hottie. Just don’t believe those nude pics floating around. Not really her.
