Royal tortoise dies at 344



Royal palace in Nigeria has announced that its resident tortoise has died following a short illness, saying it was a remarkable 344 years old.

The tortoise, named Alagba, meaning elderly one, lived in the palace of Ogbomoso in Oyo state. Alagba had at least two personal attendants and would eat only twice a month.

The revered reptile was apparently brought to the palace by the kingdom's third leader, Isan Okumoyede, who reigned from 1770 to 1797.

Tim Skelton, curator of reptiles at Bristol Zoo, said it would be "impossible" for Alagba to have lived that long. "A hundred years is a very good age," said Mr Skelton. "Giant tortoises can live up to 200, but that's a very rare exception."

Alagba is not a giant tortoise. Mr Skelton categorised Alagba as an African spur-thighed tortoise. The oldest tortoise in the world is Jonathan, an 187-year-old giant tortoise who lives in St Helena.

“There has been more than one tortoise. They just loved it so much they went and bought another one." Whatever the case may be, Rest In Peace, long-lived queen.

Taylor Swift recognizes every song but her own on the Tonight Show


During the interview, Jimmy Fallon praised her album and read a series of positive reviews. Taylor mentioned why she chose to name the album "Lover" instead of "Daylight," and they laughed about the #drunktaylor hashtag from a month ago.

Finally, Taylor said she loves the song "Lover" because it's a song she wrote alone. She said, "I find it funny, thinking about if I were to have a party for all the songwriters on that song... yeah, cause it would just be me."


They competed in a song game, in which they had to guess famous songs based on a few notes. Taylor was in the lead until the end, when the band played "Shake It Off," and Jimmy beat her to the answer.

My name is Liz Parker...and 20 years ago today, Roswell premiered



-Roswell is celebrating it's 20th anniversary today, premiering October 6th 1999 on TheWB.

-The show would go on for 3 seasons, being saved by fans for the 2nd and 3rd season. Fans sent over 18,000 bottles of Tabasco sauce to the heads of WB/UPN to get the show saved, something the actors would not appreciate at the time as most of them hated working on a teen show and wanted to move on after Season 1.

-Sherri Appleby was originally brought in to read for Maria while Heath Ledger almost won the role of Max.

-The show was originally developed for FOX as the new Beverly Hills 90210 but it skewed to young which lead TheWB to swoop in and pick up the show.

-Should the show get picked up for a 4th season, it would've delved deeper into Liz's emerging powers and be key to storylines with the show taking a page out of Charmeds book and have Liz's premonitions lead them where they needed to go.

-TheCW reboot does not have the rights to anything from the original show which is partially why there arent that many homages.

Colton Underwood and Rachel Lindsey Get In A Feud over Raven Gates

ontd bach.jpg

  • Rachel Lindsey and Colton Underwood, former Bachelorette and Bachelor on ABC's reality show, are in a fight. When Colton was bachelor, Rachel repeatedly made comments about how much she disliked him as the Bachelor. Examples include, "I'm definitely not a big fan of Colton as The Bachelor."


  • Rachel also made negative comments about him to Cassie, even though she had never met him.



  • When Rachel went on Watch What Happens Live, she made it clear that she and former bestie Raven Gates had a falling-out, but did not say over what. She only said, “I can’t say. I promised I wouldn’t say... It was enough for me to not want to be friends with her anymore... And I never will be."

    She later said, "All I'll say is she knows what she did... You can ask her. Maybe you'll have her on [the show] and she can talk about it."

  • Colton commented on an Us Weekly Instagram post, saying: "Shocker. Rachel mad at another person... does she like anyone?"

  • When fans asked about the comment, Colton wrote, "I'm not weighing in on the Rachel/Raven drama. I could care less about that, not my business. What is my business is the countless number of times she's spoke poorly of me… including that time she ran her mouth about me to Cassie…Funny thing is I have never met her."

Aaron Carter says he's moving to Canada to get out of 'foul America'



Aaron Carter posted a photo of a house with all sorts of messed up geographical-speak.

"I Found my new home and I'm starting the process on buying this home tomorrow #WeAreTheNorth I'm in the North Pole now! you can't find me now! #GoodByeAmerica #NorthWestTerritories"

BUT he tweeted that his house is in Halifax, Nova Scotia, which is nowhere near the Northwest Territories! It's on the East Coast! And Canada is not the North Pole either.

AND as any Torontonian/basketball fan would tell you, the hashtag is actually #WeTheNorth

He says this new home is close to family: "My Brother in law Mike lives here and my niece Alyssa so I have family here and Nova Scotia is one of my FAVORITE PLACES IN THE WORLd! Plus it makes for shorter flights for Europe tour." OP Note: I only see he has 4 upcoming tour dates in the Philly area...



For good measure, he also posted this classic gif:

Lizzo, Mitzi Gaynor " Sunday Morning"



- Lizzo says her career was a slowburn, but she couldn't have maintained mainstream success 10 years ago at 21, so she's glad how it worked out.

- Says people's comments about her weight were like mosquito bites that multiplied. She didn't notice them at first because they were so innocent and normalized ( like being told she could not have short hair as a lager girl) She had to peel back a lot of layers.

- Lizzo leads most of her concerts with inspirational words and when asked if it works she says yes ,because talking bad about yourself works and this is the antidote. Words are powerful.

- Lizzo says her band director helped her discover her potential and on a visit to her school she meets with him.

- Talks of her father who died of congestive heart failure in 2010. She broke down relieving how nothing could be done to save him. She says she gets angry instead of sad and that's a coping mechanism to be strong. She says life doesn't give you an opportunity to show vulnerability and an opportunity to let your guard down.


- She says she dealt with insecurities by addressing them. She looked her insecurities in the face, called them by their name and fell in love with them. She says it's an ongoing process.

- She goes to her schools band room and tells the kids it's ok not to be happy all the time, you're not supposed to know what your doing all the time, but not knowing what your doing has nothing to do with where your going. She says cherish your journey.The kids clamor to give her their flute to play. They then all play her song.

Sienna Miller recalls being reduced to tears after "paternal lecture" from Harvey Weinstein

Early on in Sienna Miller's career, she became the target of the paparazzi due to her image as a party girl. This followed her through the filming of her breakout role as Edie Sedgwick in the biopic "Factory Girl." The film was purchased by Harvey Weinstein under the "Weinstein Company." Miller recalls meeting Weinstein in his office over her partying lifestyle:

‘He called me in to his office – he had just bought [2006’s Factory Girl]. He sat me down, stood up, and said, “You’re not partying any more.” It felt like a paternal lecture,’ she remembers. ‘He slammed the door and I burst into tears, then he came back in and went, “It’s because I’m f*cking proud of you.” And slammed it again.’

At the time, she thought this kind of patronising takedown was a burden that women were expected to bear; suffice to say, she’s thrilled about the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements. ‘Women have been undermined and undervalued,’ she says. ‘That this is happening is essential.’

Miller has expressed her solidarity with the victims of Weinstein, but proclaims she was never harrassed by him.

“But I was very fortunate that no one ever propositioned me for work with sex – and if they had, I would probably have slapped them.” She stops. “But it’s not that easy,” she says. “I know that you couldn’t say no to Harvey if he asked you to do something. For me, it would be, like, an extra week of press, so I imagine in a situation where it’s sexual, it would also be hard to say no, and that’s crushing.”

However, 'Factory Girl' Director George Hickenlooper reveals a different side of Weinstein that involved a sex scene between Miller and Hayden Christensen:

ONTD Original: 5 Classic Films to Watch for Fall

While October is a month of horror films and fun scares, it also heralds the best season: Fall. Below is a collection of some films to get you in the mood for seasonal change, autumnal tones, and familial strife.

All That Heaven Allows (1955), Dir. Douglas Sirk

Predicated on a May-December romance. The difference here is that the woman, attractive widow Cary Scott (Jane Wyman), is considerably older than the man, handsome gardener-landscaper Ron Kirby (Rock Hudson). Throwing conventional behavior to the winds and facing social ostracism, Cary pursues her romance with Ron, who is unjustly perceived as a fortune-hunter by Cary's friends and family -- especially her priggish son, Ned (William Reynolds).

- Thomas Markle claims he would not let to publish parts of the letter if its existence has not been revealed by an unnamed ‘long-time friend’ of Meghan’s in People magazine,

- Harry and Meghan could be the first royals to appear in court in person in more than a century - it could be a win for tabloids because of increased coverage,

- some news outlets are already bringing back stories exposed in the hacking scandal, for example, Harry calling his private secretary to help writing an essay while he was at Sandhurst.
