Dog rescuer says Lisa Vanderpump stiffed her out of $32K




· Lizzie Scherer of Saving Spot dog rescue says the Vanderpumps, who were supporters of her rescue, agreed to basically buy her out of her rescue because they were looking for rental space. Scherer says the agreement was that Ken would pay rent on her facility for 3 years and offer her a job within their rescue
· Ken never paid her rent but offered one month's rent if Scherer would sign a NDA and let the Vanderpumps out of the deal
· Lisa, who runs Vanderpump Dogs rescue, says they helped pay her rent out of their love for dogs and that Saving Spot was a mess. Vanderpump's rep says Scherer was unable to run her rescue to the Vanderpumps' standards. Saving Spot lost their non-profit status in 2015, which Scherer blames on an administrative error. Their non-profit status has been reinstated but Scherer's rescue is still expected to shut down. Scherer's considering legal action

Rick and Morty Co-Creator/Voice Actor Justin Roiland Finally Gets His Szechuan Sauce from McDonald's




  • Ever since the first episode of season 3 aired back in April, Rick wanting his szechuan sauce back when McDonald's was promoting Mulan in 1998 has become a huge meme across the interent with everyone demanding that McDonald's bring back the szechuan sauce.

  • Rick wanting the szechuan sauce came from Justin Roiland's personal story of absolutely loving it 19 years ago.

  • In response to all the demand, McDonald's sent Justin Roiland a package from 'Dimension C-1998M' with 64 oz of the famous szechuan sauce explaining that they had to find it in a dimension were it is permanently 1998 and time never passes.

  • McDonald's wanted to get him more of the sauce but were afraid to leave the portal open in fear of the potential leakage of "puka shells, bucket hats and boy bands as far as the eye could see"

  • They also teased that "A few lucky fans will also get to experience the glory" of the szechuan sauce.

  • Episode two of season 3 will air tonight on Adult Swim.

Drake Bell says he regrets coming for Josh Peck on Twitter over not getting a wedding invitation



In June, Drake Bell called out Josh Peck on Twitter after finding out that his former co-star was getting married and that he was apparently not invited. He wrote, "True colors have come out today. Message is loud and clear. Ties are officially cut. I’ll miss you brother.” He later added, "Loyalty is key. ALWAYS remember where you came from."

Yesterday during a Facebook Live chat with Entertainment Weekly, Drake talked about the snub and said he regrets having gone after Josh publicly. "We've been together 18 years, Josh and me, me and Josh. We've been so close, it was just one of those things where you know, I'd been talking to him, and he's been telling me about the engagement. And then I saw on social media, the wedding, and I didn't hear about it. So, it was just one of those things where it was just like, 'You didn't even tell me?! I had to find out on social media?' And then you're like, 'You know what!? Fine!’ And then I'm like, wait, I probably shouldn't have done that. I should have just texted that to him, you know. I was just being cranky. It is what it is, dude. I love the kid. No hard feelings.”

Josh hasn't talked about the fight publicly, but a "source" told Us Weekly that he was annoyed by Drake's tweets: “Josh told everyone that he and Drake hadn’t spoken in years. They would tweet each other back on social media a couple times a year, but never actually spoke. They aren’t close anymore and Josh had a very small wedding.”

1 week after his death, Chester Bennington’s wife Talinda releases statement on his passing



"7/27/17
One week ago, I lost my soulmate and my children lost their hero-their Daddy. We had a fairytale life and now it has turned into some sick Shakespearean tragedy. How do I move on? How do I pick up my shattered soul? The only answer I know is to raise our babies with every ounce of love I have left. I want to let my community and the fans worldwide know that we feel your love. We feel your loss as well. My babies are so young to have lost their daddy. And I know that all of you will help keep his memory alive. He was a bright, loving soul with an angel’s voice. And now he is pain free singing his songs in all of our hearts. May God Bless us all and help us turn to one another when we are in pain. Chester would’ve wanted us to do so. Rest In Peace, my love.

Always,
Mrs.Talinda Bennington"

The Killers on Past Rivalry with The Strokes


Recently The Killers were asked about comments made by The Strokes‘ guitarist Nick Valensi where he admits that his band felt bitterness over The Killers' popularity at the height of their fame. In an excerpt in the book "Meet Me in the Bathroom: Rebirth and Rock and Roll in New York City, 2001–2011" he recalls: "We had conversations that went along the lines of Gosh, I think our songs are better than 'Mr. Brightside' by The Killers, but how come that's the one everyone is listening to?"

Drummer from The Killers, Ronnie Vannucci Jr., comments on it in the video below saying that The Strokes have always been above them and that they wouldn't compare themselves to them at all - but that they were flattered they would mention them at all even to this day:



Lead singer Brandon Flowers has also commented on it in the past saying that The Strokes had the better debut album by far but that their debut album "Hot Fuss" was up there and was proud of it.

The Killers are performing tomorrow (Monday, July 31st 2017) on Jimmy Kimmel Live! a 6-song set list in front of Ceasers Palace on the Las Vegas Strip. "The Man" will be aired live with the rest of the of the performances to be streamed live on the JKL website.

Angelina Jolie Refutes Vanity Fair Excerpt Depicting Controversial Casting Process: ‘I Am Upset’




(Intended as a follow up to the excerpt included in this previous post)


- In a statement to the Huffington Post, Jolie says “I am upset that a pretend exercise in an improvisation, from an actual scene in the film, has been written about as if it was a real scenario,” [....] “The suggestion that real money was taken from a child during an audition is false and upsetting. I would be outraged myself if this had happened.”

She claims that parents, guardians and non-governmental organization partners, as well as medical doctors, were present throughout the entire filmmaking process, including auditions.

- Srey Moch Sareum was the actor who was eventually picked for the child's leading role. She lives in a slum community and attends an NGO school in Cambodia.

Speidi Appear On InfoWars...



Insane person, horrible father, asshole, and noted conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones, interviewed Spencer and Heidi Pratt for his horrible InfoWars show. I know some of you will probably argue that he doesn't deserve views and should be ignored, but I think it's important to remember that people actually believe in shit this lunatic says and that's definitely dangerous and a problem for everyone. Because ONTD doesn't watch full videos, I've picked out some interesting (read: insane) bits and posted them below:
