Did Nick Gordon Play Dr. Phil to Sway Bobbi Kristina Crime Probe? (watch!)

Nick Gordon laid it on thick on the “Dr. Phil” show yesterday (Mar. 11), maybe a little too thick.

Miley Cyrus is all about exploring her sexuality, including the kinky side. She’s entered a short film in the New York Porn Film Festival that shows her bound and gagged with nothing by tape hiding her private parts.

Downtown Abbey Recap: Nobility Reduced to Tedious Twaddle

Lord Grantham bemoans the new Labour government in the opening episode of Downton Abbey. But no need to fret that it’s committed “to the destruction of people like us.” The show’s writers have already done a pretty good job of that, portraying Britain’s upper crust as so much tedious twaddle. After five seasons, Lord Grantham has been reduced to Homer Simpson. He can’t he do anything right. He’s betwixt and befuddled by modern conventions and constantly humiliated, even by his own servants. Ok. So we get the point....

North Korean Hacker Terror Threats Step Over the Line; US Must React
