Devon Sawa demands we change "Karen" to "Shelly" after Shelly refuses to wear mask at market

Former Teen heartthrob Devon Sawa posted a heartbreaking story of a Karen refusing to wear a mask at a Gelson's and it goes a lil something like this......

Gelson’s policy requires all employees and customers to wear masks while inside the store. A woman named Shelly Lewis from Dana Point in Orange County speaks with a Gelson’s staff member who is wearing a mask. The employee informs Shelly Lewis from Dana Point in Orange County that she needs to wear a mask while shopping in the establishment and that the business can provide her with a mask if she doesn’t have one. Of course Shelly demands to speak with the manager.

Shelly lies and tells the manager that she has a 'medical condition' that prohibits her from wearing a mask. Shelly demands to speak with the manager, the manager comes out and Shelly says she has 'private items' she needs to purchase and the manger who was willing to provide her with a mask, was also willing to go out of their way to purchase the 'private items'. Shelly wasn't willing to co operate to a free mask nor the managers offer, instead she said she was going to call corporate and sue.

Shelly decided to post the incident on social media in hopes to gain sympathy. Well she was wrong, Shelly received backlash online and the video started trending on Twitter. Since the video became viral, Lewis has deleted the video from her Facebook page and deactivated her account. This is where things get interesting, apparently Shelly has Been Advocating on Social Media Against COVID-19 Regulations, believes in the conspiracy theories about 5g and also is a flat earther.

Newlyweds who traveled despite the corona virus and got stuck in Sri Lanka go viral

Michelle and John Senyard from San Francisco tied the knot March 6, were already on their honeymoon to Thailand and Sri Lanka by March 8, and they've been stuck in Sri Lanka ever since.

Four days ago, Michelle posted a TikTok video of her husband swinging from a tree in Sri Lanka, instantly going viral with over 4 million views.

Their original flight was canceled as the pandemic grew worse. On the same morning the airline cancelled their flight and the USA issued the Global Travel Advisory Level 4 urging all Americans to return home immediately. But when looked at flights, nothing shorter than 50 hours of travel was available, and all of options were over $2,000 each. Traveling through several layover stops, so a two weeks stay turned into a two months one.

Though this may sound like a dream, they state that it’s difficult since there are islandwide curfews, and the government will tell you pretty last-minute how long they are.

Even though they’re surprised and enjoying their Internet viral fame by showcasing beautiful landscapes and partaking in fun activities, they say they are not trying to flaunt a luxurious, island lifestyle born from the pandemic.

RHOP's Gizelle Bryant Denies Jamal Bryant Fathered a Child with Member of His Congregation

Real Housewives of Potomac’s Giselle Bryant went on Watch What Happens Live and discussed the rumors that her ex-husband and current boyfriend, pastor Jamal H. Bryant fathered a child with a woman of his congregation.

Gizelle said that the rumors were false that the mega church pastor fathered another child.

"Clearly we're very important if people are going to make up these lies," Gizelle said. "Put some respect on Jamal's name. He's doing wonderful things in Atlanta."

Gizelle and Jamal were married from 2002 to 2009, and they split after Jamal had an affair.

The couple got back together last year and are currently in a long distance relationship. Jamal lives in Atlanta, he’s the pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. Gizelle lives in Bethesda, Maryland.

The couple has three daughters, Grace, 15, and twins Angel and Adore, 14.

Jamal addressed the rumors earlier this month on YouTube and says the allegations are false.

Ariana Grande responds to 6*x9*ne: "Be grateful you’re even here"

Ariana thanked her fans for the Hot 100 #1 today and responded to 6*x9*ne’s claims that her team was using illegal tactics to get the song to #1. On Instagram, she wrote:

"thank u to everybody who supported this song, this cause and made this happen. we love uuuuu so much. i would like to say a few things. anyone who knows me or has followed me for a while knows that numbers aren't the driving force in anything i do. i'm grateful to sing. grateful to have people who want to listen. grateful to even be here at all. i didn't have a number one for the first five years of my career and it didn't upset me at all because from the bottom of my heart, music is everything to me. my fans are everything to me. i promise I couldn't ask for another fucking thing. so with this celebration today, i would like to address a few things which i don't usually do (i don't give my energy to drama or strange accusations normally but this has gone a little too far) fans bought the song. JUSTIN'S fans bought the song. OUR fans bought this song (never more than four copies each, AS THE RULES STATE). they are ride or die motherfuckers and i thank god every day that i have them in my life. not just when they fight for us to win (even when i ask them not to as i did this week) but because they're some of the greatest people I know. sales count for more than streams. u can not discredit this as hard as u try. to anybody that is displeased with their placement on the chart this week or who is spending their time racking their brain thinking of as many ways as they can to discredit hardworking women (and only the women for some reason...), i ask u to take a moment to humble yourself. be grateful you're even here. that people want to listen to u at all. it's a blessed position to be in. i've had a lot of "almost number ones" in my career and i never said a goddamn thing because I FEEL GRATEFUL TO EVEN BE HERE. TO WANT TO BE HEARD AT ALL... and you should feel that way too. congratulations to all my talented ass peers in the top ten this week. even number 3. and thank u to @billboard for this honor. and thank u to everybody who helped us raise a lot of money for a very important cause this week. I love u all a lot. however, there's so much to celebrate today."

ONTD Original: 5 Underrated actors & actresses who deserve more limelight

Hello ONTD! Are you tired of seeing the same faces over and over in your fave shows or upcoming movies? Have you had enough of Timothee Wotsit being fancast in every damn thing? Me too. I've made a list of actors and actresses who I think are underrated and deserve more love:

1. Costa Ronin


This tall slice of Russian goodness nabbed his first major role on the equally underrated series The Americans, where he played Oleg Burov, a KGB officer. He also starred in the last two seasons of Homeland as Yevgeny Gromov, again playing a Russian spy. Ronin is particularly skilled at leaning into his natural charm on-screen and knowing how to underplay it when he needs to be subtle, or overplay it when he needs to be smarmy. Unfortunately, despite his perfect English (he learned the language after moving from the Soviet Union to New Zealand and then Australia), his strong Russian accent means that Hollywood will probably continue casting him as a Russian agent or East Berlin Prison Guard #2. Here's hoping that that he'll score another excellent series like the Americans, or at least score some good roles in foreign film.

BTS Jungkook and other kpop idols catch hell for socializing during pandemic and not self-isolating

- BTS’s Jungkook, SEVENTEEN’s Mingyu, NCT’s Jaehyun, and ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo spent a night out in the neighborhood of Itaewon where a recent resurgence of COVID-19 in South Korea began

- the four idols hung out in a restaurant and two bars evening of April 25 till dawn on April 26.

- A patient with the virus visited clubs in the neighborhood on May 2 and tested positive on May 6. After this confirmed case was announced, the Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters (CDSCHQ) requested that anyone who visited entertainment facilities (a category that includes clubs, bars, and more) in Itaewon between April 24 and May 6 refrain from leaving their homes

- Following this report, each idol’s agencies released official statements stating that the report is true and that all idols had tested negative for COVID-19

- Fans have pointed out that South Korea was not enforcing confinement like many countries, but the real issue is that the idols continued to work and did not self-isolate for 14 days as requested.

The Untold Truth About In-N-Out Fries

While In-N-Out is known for having some of the best burgers of any fast food chain, its fries are another story. Let's just say they're not the most beloved potato-based side dish in the biz.

Brandon Mercer of SFGate says he can’t get enough of those famous burgers, but when he’s asked if he’d like fries with that, he always declines.

According to Mercer, “In-N-Out fries are indeed terrible. They’re soggy, sickly beige, under-salted, wilted, and unworthy of being called a fry at all. More like potatoes boiled in oil until submission.”

This is the “truth” about In-N-Out fries.
