  1. It turns out there's a reason – besides being polar political opposites – that Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck fought like an old married couple during their time together on "The View." O'Donnell, 57, confessed in “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View'” that she had "a little bit of a crush" on her right-leaning table-mate. The comedian was quick, however, to clarify that her "crush" manifested itself in a mentor role, not in any romantic overtures. “Not that I wanted to kiss her," O'Donnell explained in the book (via Variety). "I wanted to support, raise, elevate her, like she was the freshman star shortstop and I was the captain of the team ... I was going to Scottie Pippen her. If I was Jordan, I was going to give her and the ball and let her shoot. But it was in no way sexualized.” “I loved her,” she admitted, adding that she tried to help Hasselbeck, 41, learn the ropes of TV. “Here’s what I said, ‘I’m the senior. She’s the freshman. I’ve got a really good player on the freshman team, but I have to teach her how to loosen up,'” O'Donnell recalled. Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Rosie O'Donnell. (Getty) “I think there were underlying lesbian undertones on both parts,” she added, throwing in some lesbian athletic stereotypes for good measure. “I think this is something that will hurt her if you write it. She was the MVP of a Division 1 softball team for two years that won the finals. There are not many, in my life, girls with such athletic talent on sports teams that are traditionally male that aren’t at least a little bit gay.” O'Donnell said her last day on TV with Hasselbeck was heartbreaking, despite their constant onscreen screaming matches over hot-button issues. The "A League of Their Own" star also said she was hurt that Hasselbeck didn't defend her from other conservatives who allegedly took shots at her. “It felt like a lover breaking up,” O’Donnell admitted. “The fight that we had, to me as a gay woman, it felt like this: ‘You don’t love me as much as I love you. I’ve taken care of you. You have not. How could you do that to me? I didn’t do anything to you.’” Reps for O'Donnell and Hasselbeck did not immediately return Fox News' requests for comment on their working relationship.
  2. Michael Avenatti, porn star Stormy Daniels' former lawyer who briefly considered a bid for president, is set to be charged Monday for allegedly trying to extort Nike for $15-$25 million, officials at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York said. Avenatti, who Fox News confirmed was taken into custody Monday, allegedly tried to extort the massive sports apparel company "by threatening to use his ability to garner publicity to inflict substantial financial and reputational harm on the company if his demands were not met," prosecutors alleged. The counts against him include conspiracy to transmit interstate communications with intent to extort, conspiracy to commit extortion and more. Avenatti is expected to answer to the charges later Monday. A press conference in New York is scheduled for later Monday to discuss the charges against Avenatti. Meanwhile, a second press conference is set in California, where federal authorities are set to announce additional criminal charges against the lawyer for a separate matter. In that case, Avenatti is alleged to have embezzled money from a client to pay expenses for himself and his business ventures. Earlier Monday, Avenatti tweeted he would be holding a press conference Tuesday to "disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike that we have uncovered. This criminal conduct reaches the highest levels of Nike and involves some of the biggest names in college basketball." According to the complaint against him, Avenatti and an unidentified co-conspirator met with attorneys for Nike on March 19 and "threatened to release damaging information" if the company did not agree to make multi-million dollar payments to them, as well as an additional $1.5 million payment to a client Avenatti claimed to represent. He allegedly told the attorneys that if his demands were not met, he would "go take ten billion dollars off your client's market cap ... I'm not f***ing around." The complaint said Avenatti threatened to hold a news conference on the eve of Nike's quarterly earnings call and the start of the NCAA tournament to announce allegations of misconduct by Nike employees. The co-conspirator was identified as an attorney licensed to practice in the state of California, and is "similarly known for representation of celebrity and public figure clients." Meanwhile, the alleged client was identified as a coach for an amateur athletic union men's basketball program based in California. Avenatti became famous as the lawyer for Daniels, the porn actress who alleged she had an affair with President Trump. In the last year, the duo became household names in their fight against Trump, dominating cable news shows for months and taunting the president in interviews. Daniels released a statement Monday saying she was not "shocked" by the charges against Avenatti. "Knowing what I know now about Michael Avenatti, I am saddened but not shocked by news reports that he has been criminally charged today," Daniels said. "I made the decision more than a month ago to terminate Michael's services after discovering that he had dealt with me extremely dishonestly and there will be more announcements to come." Before Avenatti began representing Daniels in February 2018, he was virtually unknown outside of the California legal community. But in a matter of months, he had become known as a no-holds-barred lawyer with a media style -- and a penchant for tweeting -- similar to Trump's. Avenatti had toyed with a 2020 presidential run as a Democrat -- he even visited Iowa at one point -- but ultimately ruled that out. He also was involved in another high profile case, representing dozens of parents whose children were separated from them at the U.S. border as a result of the Trump administration's immigration policies. More recently, he's been representing women who said they were sexually abused by R&B star R. Kelly.
  3. Several celebrities went on the offensive on social media after learning of the results of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to rig the 2016 presidential election. Attorney General William Barr on Sunday released the "principal conclusions" of Mueller's probe in a bombshell four-page letter to Congress, which stated definitively that Mueller did not establish evidence that President Trump's team or any associates of the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia to sway the 2016 election. While some on cable news pointed out it was good news that the president was found to not have colluded with Russia, Barr's report did not make many anti-Trump stars happy. "Did not imagine a world where they were able to indict Aunt Becky before Donald Trump," actor and comedian Billy Eichner tweeted after Barr revealed the investigation "did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated" with Russians. Lori Loughlin, the actress who played Aunt Becky on the sitcom "Full House," was indicted earlier this month after federal investigators claimed she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, agreed to pay $500,000 in bribes to have their two daughters designated as recruits for the USC crew team — when neither girl was a rower. 14.5K people are talking about this He later followed up with: "Trump is garbage. Anyone else 2020. ... There's MY report. You're welcome." "Queer Eye" star Jonathan Van Ness assured those who hoped the Mueller report would find something more damning on the president that this is just the tip of the iceberg. "Mueller was only allowed to look at potential collusion / or obstruction. The money laundering and tax evasion charges are coming sweeties don’t you worry. If we waited 7 years for Game of Thrones winter to come we can wait for this justice a bit longer," he said in one tweet. 1,726 people are talking about this He continued in a follow-up: "For the GOP complaining about how much the Mueller investigation cost $25 million... that’s on par for what Mueller got the government back with these assets that were forfeit."

  4. It's official: The L.A. Lakers will NOT make the playoffs for the SIXTH season . . . despite adding LEBRON JAMES last offseason. And for LeBron, this is particularly embarrassing. LeBron hasn't missed the playoffs since his second season in the league . . . 14 YEARS ago. Back then, he was just starting to light the world on fire, and he was playing with a VERY sub-par Cleveland Cavaliers team. This also breaks LeBron's streak of being in the FINALS for EIGHT CONSECUTIVE seasons . . . four with Miami, followed by four in his second stint with the Cavs. So yeah, the Cavs roster was no match for the Golden State Warriors the past few years . . . but maybe LeBron started his semi-retirement to Hollywood a few seasons too soon, because his first season in L.A. has been a mess. To put this in perspective, the last time LeBron was NOT in the NBA playoffs . . . none of us had even heard of KIM KARDASHIAN. She was just a random rich girl, who was one of Paris Hilton's friends. It wasn't until early 2007 that Kim's sex-tape with Ray J was 'leaked' online. Within a year, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" premiered, and Kim posed nude for "Playboy". You probably wouldn't have heard of YouTube either, since it launched just a few months earlier . . . and we were still two years away from the first iPhone. LeBron couldn't 'sub-Tweet' any teammates about not making the playoffs . . . because Twitter didn't exist. Netflix was delivering DVDs, but streaming was not a thing . . . and Aubrey Graham wasn't making music as Drake, he was starring on "Degrassi: The Next Generation"! George W. Bush was in the early part of his second term as President . . . "The Office" was finishing its first season . . . andCarrie Underwood was in the process of winning Season Four of "American Idol". Interesting fact: The Lakers only missed the playoffs FIVE times in their first 65 years of existence . . . now they've missed out six years IN A ROW.
  5. The Mueller Report is Here: There Was No Collusion HIGHLIGHTS: PRESIDENT TRUMP claimed victory yesterday when the Mueller Report concluded that he did NOT collude with Russia to sway the 2016 election. As far as obstruction of justice, the report didn't say he committed a crime, but didn't exonerate him either. FULL STORY: Special counsel ROBERT MUELLER finally concluded and sent his report to Attorney General BILL BARR on Friday. And it says that PRESIDENT TRUMP did NOT collude with Russia. The report hasn't been released yet, but Barr issued a statement yesterday on its findings, saying that neither the Trump campaign nor anyone associated with it conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 election. The report also didn't include any further indictments. Trump took this as a massive victory, Tweeting, quote, "No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!" He also suggested that someone should now investigate "the other side" . . . whatever that means. But the report on Trump wasn't 100% squeaky clean. On the issue of obstruction of justice, Mueller did NOT conclude that Trump committed a crime, but he also didn't exonerate the president. It's not clear at this time what that means, but Mueller basically left the decision to prosecute up to Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and they decided there wasn't enough evidence. Democrats have already jumped on that. They want to know exactly why Mueller felt he couldn't exonerate Trump on obstruction. They're calling for the full report to be released, and they plan to call Barr to testify before Congress. They might even subpoena Mueller himself. Barr says he plans to release as much of the Mueller report as he is legally allowed. One thing he can't release is any information regarding ongoing investigations involving Trump or his associates. Trump has been saying that the full report SHOULD be made public. So if he changes his mind now, that'll seem kind of shady. Over the course of the nearly two-year investigation, charges have been filed against 37 defendants . . . including six Trump associates and 26 Russians. Seven have pleaded guilty, including former Trump campaigns chairman Paul Manafort, who's already been convicted.
  6. Camille Kostek, the longtime girlfriend of former Patriots great Rob Gronkowski, posted words of encouragement for the ex-tight end who earlier announced his retirement from the game after nine seasons. “You motivate me to be better,” she posted on Instagram. “You show me that limits can be pushed and that challenges make you stronger. If you ask me, you’re the best to ever do it. There is nothing like the thrill of watching you play. I love you with all my heart, you allow me to take the term “proud girlfriend” to a new level. For all the people that have come up to us to tell you they are your biggest fan, I quietly smile because I know I’m yours and I will continue to root you on in all that you do.” A second-round draft pick by the Patriots out of the University of Arizona in 2010, Gronkowski quickly became a fan favorite in New England for his thunderous spiking of the football after one of his many touchdown receptions. His arrival also coincided with the second wave of franchise success under head coach Bill Belichick and starting quarterback Tom Brady. The Patriots made at least the AFC Championship in each of Gronkowski's last eight seasons with the team and reached four Super Bowls, winning three of them. In his final game, Gronkowski caught six passes for 87 yards in the Patriots' 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 53. The last catch of his NFL career was a 29-yard gain that set up the only touchdown of the game, a two-yard plunge by rookie running back Sony Michel. Brady reacted to Gronkowski's retirement in a comment on the Instagram post: "Love u man!! The [greatest of all time]!! Couldn't be a better person or teammate!!!!" In his own Instagram post, the six-time Super Bowl winner said it was " an honor and privledge [sic] to play with [Gronkowski] these past nine years."
  7. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., posted an ominous reply to ex-FBI-Director James Comey on Twitter Sunday after Comey seemed to sum up the summary of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation by posting a picture of a man who appeared lost in the woods. The photo posted by Comey was of a man surrounded by tall trees, and the caption was simply: "So many questions." Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, replied, "Could not agree more," an obvious message that he hopes to question the former FBI head. 27.9K people are talking about this Comey's tweet followed Attorney General William Barr’s announcement that Mueller did not find evidence that Trump’s campaign “conspired or coordinated” with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election but reached no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice. Trump and his team celebrated the outcome but also laid bare his resentment after two years of investigations that have shadowed his administration. “It’s a shame that our country has had to go through this. To be honest, it’s a shame that your president has had to go through this,” he said. Despite Trump’s claim of total exoneration, Mueller did not draw a conclusion one way or the other on whether he sought to stifle the Russia investigation through his actions including the firing of former FBI director James Comey. According to Barr’s summary, Mueller set out "evidence on both sides of the question" and stated that "while this report does not conclude the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him." The Hill reached out to Graham for clarification about his tweet and his office referred the website to a letter from Graham to the attorney general about investigating a FISA surveillance warrant against Carter Page, a former campaign adviser to then-candidate Trump. The surveillance of Page became a contentious matter between Republicans and Democrats. Republicans say the FBI had abused its surveillance powers and improperly obtained the warrant, a charge that Democrats rebutted as both sides characterized the documents in different ways. Critics have charged that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who signed off on the FISA application renewals, should not have approved them without more reliable intelligence. Trump has claimed that his campaign was “illegally” spied on for “the political gain of Crooked Hillary Clinton and the DNC.”
  8. This should make the Spice Girls reunion tour even more interesting. Mel "Scary Spice" B revealed she and Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell once had sex. “She is going to hate me for this because she is all posh in a country house but it wasn’t a ‘thing,’" Mel B, 43, told Piers Morgan on "Life Stories" Friday. "it just happened, we just giggled at it and that was it," she said. "We were best friends. It just happened.” Geri Halliwell and Mel B (Ginger Spice and Scary Spice) of the Spice Girls (Getty) Halliwell, 46, seems to have letf her wild days behind her: She married Red Bull Formula 1 boss Christian Horner in 2015 and has two kids. Mel lamented that since she revealed the bombshell, "[Halliwell] and her husband are going to kill me." The openly bisexual singer and former "America's Got Talent" judge refused to answer further questions about her sexual escapade with Ginger Spice, including whether or not it was "good," but said it was a "fun thing" and that Halliwell likely wouldn't deny it. Mel B and Geri Halliwell (Scary and Ginger) of the Spice Girls photographed backstage at the Brit Awards in February 1997.(Getty) She also admitted to kissing Mel C (Sporty Spice), but said it was "nothing sexual" and was simply to show off and test out a new tongue piercing. Previously when asked about ever sleeping with her Spice Girl bandmates, Mel reportedly replied, “Do you mean sex, or did we just sleep in a bed together? Sex? Let’s just say I slept in a bed with them all.”
  9. A high school student who survived the 2018 school shooting in Parkland, Fla., died Saturday in an apparent suicide a week after another survivor killed herself, police said. Police received a call about a deceased person at a home Saturday night and arrived at the scene to find a juvenile who died in an apparent suicide, a Coral Springs Policespokesman told Fox News on Sunday. The official cause of death has not been released pending the medical examiner’s autopsy. Police confirmed the juvenile was a current Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student, but did not release further details. Authorities were investigating the incident. A student who survived the Parkland school shooting died of an apparent suicide on Saturday, police said. (AP) Sources told the Miami Herald, who first reported the story, that the juvenile was a male student who was a sophomore. News of the death comes a week after Sydney Aiello, who recently graduated from the high school, took her own life. Her mother, Cara Aiello, told CBS Miami that Sydney was recently diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and struggled with "survivor’s guilt" after 17 of her classmates and staff members were gunned down on Feb. 14, 2018. She added her daughter was afraid of being in a classroom and struggled to attend classes in college. Sydney was sad but never asked for help before she killed herself, Aiello said. Sydney was also a close friend to Meadow Pollack, one of the 17 people killed in the school shooting. Ryan Petty, the father of slain student Alaina Petty, told the Miami Herald the student who died Saturday night was killed by a gunshot wound to the head. “The issue of suicide needs to be talked about," Petty said. "This is another tragic example." David Hogg, a former Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student turned activist, tweeted about the students' deaths on Sunday. “How many more kids have to be taken from us as a result of suicide for the government / school district to do anything? Rip 17 + 2,” Hogg wrote on Twitter.

  11. So many Democrats are running for president the race feels like a March Madness bracket. If it were, the No. 1 seeds would be former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Either would be favored to beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 finals, according to the latest Fox News Poll. Democratic primary voters were read a list of 20 announced and potential candidates for the 2020 nomination. Biden is the top choice at 31 percent, followed by Sanders at 23 percent. California Sen. Kamala Harris (8 percent) and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (8 percent) make up a second tier. They are followed by New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (4 percent), Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (4 percent), and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (2 percent). The other candidates are the political equivalent of a 16th seed -- they receive less than two percent. Eleven percent are unsure of their picks. Men, women, whites, non-whites, college graduates, and non-graduate Democratic primary voters all put Biden first and Sanders second. Sanders has the edge among those under age 45, while Biden is first for those 45 and over. Democratic primary voters are more likely to support a candidate they think can beat Trump (51 percent) than the candidate they like the most (36 percent). While Biden is technically undeclared, he slipped up and said he is entering the 2020 race. An official April announcement is expected. Two-thirds of Democratic primary voters want Biden to run, and he is the top choice among those who prioritize beating Trump, followed by Harris, Sanders, and O’Rourke. Among those who say it is more important to vote for the candidate they like than the one who could win, Sanders is the first choice, followed by Biden. “Democratic primary voters would welcome Biden into the field, should he run,” says Democratic pollster Chris Anderson, who conducts the Fox News Poll with Republican Daron Shaw. “They prioritize beating Trump, and as of now Biden fares best of the more widely known Democratic candidates against Trump.” The poll also asks Democratic primary voters about policies. Majorities are “very” likely to back a candidate who supports Medicare for all (67 percent) and a 70 percent tax rate on income over $10 million (53 percent). Less than 4 in 10 are very likely to vote for a candidate who supports passing the Green New Deal (37 percent), paying reparations to descendants of slaves (31 percent), and abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE (25 percent). The hypothetical head-to-heads among registered voters show support for Trump stays between 40-42 percent against each Democrat tested. He tops both Harris (39-41 percent) and Warren by 2 points (40-42 percent). Sanders has a 3-point edge over the president (44-41 percent), but Biden performs best, topping Trump by 7 points (47-40 percent). The head-to-head matchups between Trump and Sanders, Harris, and Warren are within the poll’s margin of sampling error. Biden’s lead is just outside it. “There is ambivalence at this early stage of the nomination process,” says Shaw. “Democrats want Trump out any way possible, but they also have a set of public policy preferences that would have been considered way outside of the mainstream even 10 years ago. This has major implications for all candidates and especially for Biden. Democrats like him, they want him to run, and are likely to be impressed Biden currently runs well against Trump, but do they think winning the White House depends on him? If not, the rationale for his candidacy is unclear.” Finally, 41 percent of Democratic primary voters would rather Trump be voted out of office in 2020 than impeached. That matches the 41 percent who prefer he be impeached and removed before the election. Now that would be a real bracket-buster. The Fox News poll is based on landline and cellphone interviews with 1,002 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide, including 403 Democratic primary voters, and was conducted under the joint direction of Beacon Research (D) (formerly named Anderson Robbins Research) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from March 17-20, 2019. The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for all registered voters and plus or minus five percentage points for Democratic primary voters.
  12. Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children. The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.” She says she “absolutely” believes the allegations of abuse by Robson and Safechuck, but puts more blame on their parents than The Gloved One. “His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has," Streisand told The Times. “You can say ‘molested,' but those children, as you heard say [grown-up Robson and Safechuck], they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.” Streisand, who crossed paths with Jackson during their careers, added that she feels sorry for both the alleged victims and Jackson. “I feel bad for the children,” she said. “I feel bad for him. I blame, I guess, the parents, who would allow their children to sleep with him. Why would Michael need these little children dressed like him and in the shoes and the dancing and the hats?” Dan Reed, the director of “Leaving Neverland,” seemed shocked at Streisand’s comments. “'It didn’t kill them’ @BarbraStreisand did you really say that?!,'” Reed tweeted Friday. Others were equally outraged. “As a lifelong fan, I am deeply disappointed about your remarks regarding Michael Jackson,” a Twitter user going by Lisa Bee wrote. “I don’t understand how you could be so dismissive of the abuse that he inflicted and the damage that’s been done. It’s so unsympathetic to ALL victims of sexual abuse.”
  13. Robert Kraft’s powerful legal team is “surprised and disappointed” that prosecutors have denied their request to stop the “sexual and graphic” videos from inside the Asian spa going public. Kraft’s lead attorney William Burck revealed that the West Palm Beach State Attorney has refused to agree to the request for a protective order over the evidence in the case, including the hidden video footage of the men inside the Orchids of Asia Spa. Lawyers for Kraft, 77, and 14 other men charged with soliciting prostitution had filed the motion this week to keep all evidence in the case private. Kraft strongly denies soliciting prostitution. Burck said, “We put in a motion for a protective order of the evidence in this case, a standard request in any case to keep evidence protected until trial – especially since the video evidence supposedly contains private moments between [two or more] people. We’ve been surprised and disappointed that the state attorney did not sign on to the protective order, because it is a standard procedure in a criminal case. They declined to agree to the protective order.” A spokesperson for State Attorney Dave Aronberg did not respond to calls and emails. However Sheriff William Snyder, who oversaw what he announced was a human trafficking investigation says he expects the videos – which he described as “explicit, sexual and graphic” – to go public, “Ultimately they are probably going to get released,” he said Thursday on CNBC, “There has to be a specific reason not to release a public record. And the fact that there is sexual activity is not an exemption.” Snyder was not available for further comment. Kraft’s legal team asserts the video surveillance is illegal under privacy laws. Burck said, “We’ve looked at…the law around the warrant for the video surveillance inside the spa, and we think it is a violation of the fourth amendment. We also believe the traffic stop [made by police as the men left the spa] was illegal and a violation of the constitution.” Burck, a former federal prosecutor, continued, “Sheriff Snyder and Jupiter police chief Daniel Kerr from the outset have said this is a human trafficking case, but have produced no evidence [to corroborate that]. They have falsely connected Robert Kraft and other men to human trafficking. Now they should correct the record. I have asked that the record be corrected and there’s been no response. “The state attorney should take a look how the evidence in this case was obtained by the police and explain how this evidence passes constitutional muster, because we don’t see it.” Messages left for Chief Kerr were not immediately returned. Earlier this week the state attorney’s office offered Kraft and 24 other men accused of soliciting prostitution a chance to have the charges dropped if they agree to make a statement about what they new about the “illegal activity” at the Asian spa and agree they would have been found guilty if the case had gone to trial. Kraft – who strongly denies knowing that the spa was a house of prostitution – has not accepted the deal, according to sources. Burck refused to detail his discussions with the state attorney over the deal. Kraft is scheduled to be arraigned on March 28.
  14. One stunning 21-year-old woman says she has sex with her 74-year-old fiance every day — and that he never needs Viagra. Milijana Bogdanovic and her older partner Milojko “Mikan” Bozic have stunned neighbors in their village in Serbia with their unconventional relationship. Bozic is a grandad who underwent heart surgery in December but even that has not stopped the unlikely couple planning for the future. The lovebirds, who have a 53-year age gap, are preparing for a September 7 wedding and hope to start a family. Bozic is a grandad who underwent heart surgery in December but even that has not stopped the unlikely couple planning for the future. (Central European News) "We have sex almost every day, I don't see what is strange with that. But since Mikan had his heart operation, I have to go easy on him in bed,” Bogdanovic said. "But he is like a young man when it comes to sex, he doesn't need Viagra. “Although, I don't know much about younger men, as I've always been with men older than me,” the woman added. Bogdanovic added that she was attracted to her beau for his looks, saying "I don't like young guys, I've liked older men since forever.” "For his years, he looks perfect. I don't care what other people think and say. I've known Mikan all my life, my neighbors and I used to help him when he was sick, that's when our love was born,” the bride-to-be revealed. She said her only sadness was that her parents were disappointed with her choice as she had always enjoyed their support. Bozic has three children, aged 40, 35 and 30, from his first marriage, and two grandchildren, aged 13 and 11. He said his relationship with Bogdanovic had come as a surprise to him as he had never expected to find love again at his age. "I was attracted to her kindness and beauty. Who doesn't like younger?” the man said. "I've known her since she was little, but I hadn't thought of anything like that. When she was growing up we spent time together but nothing more." The couple will have to marry in a registry office as the local church does not marry couples with an age gap of over 15 years.
  15. A suggestive Easter treat sold at British retailer Marks and Spencer has caught the attention of social media users and become victim to rude comments online. The milk chocolate "yoga bunny" is shaped like a small rabbit in the "downward dog" position — downward dog being a yoga position on all fours, with straight arms and legs, and is one of the most widely recognized yoga positions. M&S launched the chocolate product for Easter, which falls on a later date than usual this year — April 21. But sharp-tongued tweeters were quick to call out the mischievous product, which many implied had a sexual nature. An account called Tiny Head posted a snap of the bunny with the caption: “Prayers for those of us who have to try and sell this product with a straight face appreciated. “If you haven't yet seen the 'Yoga Bunny' egg M&S has brought out, unwillingly draw your attention to it…” Meanwhile, another user named Mike wrote: “The M&S Yoga Bunny Easter egg is very ‘door’s on the latch, find me upstairs.” Amberoo replied: “Why do M&S always produce at least one suggestive Easter egg every year? Or is it just my mind ” And Christian wrote: “It seems #JessicaRabbit’s gone a bit suggestive for #Easter!” The official M&S Twitter account later replied to Christian, writing, "Suggestive? It's merely a bunny in the ‘downwards-facing dog’ yoga position, Christian!"
  16. Saturday was National Puppy Day, so singer Miley Cyrus marked the occasion in a way unlikely to surprise those who follow her career: She posted a photo of herself naked with a dog. Actually, Cyrus isn’t totally naked: She’s wearing a yellow floppy hat and a pair of bright green boots that rise above her knees. “Happy national puppy day you filthy animals,” Cyrus captioned the photo. The post on Cyrus’ Instagram account appears to have been taken the same day as a previous nude photo that Cyrus posted March 18, because she seems to be at the same location, on the same beach chair and wearing the same hat. Meanwhile, Cyrus was seen with another pooch Friday night at a bar in West Hollywood. These days Cyrus is said to be working on new music, possibly with rapper Drake, according to a recent E! News report.
