Halloween season is upon us and that means scary videos (like this one) are upon us. And that’s just what a hospital in India has gifted us when they shared a video of a wheelchair moving all by itself. If this happened at a hospital in America, it’d be obvious that a ghost was trying to wheel itself outta there after realizing the bill it was going to be hit with.
Before I went to bed last night, I read the headline: Mel B “Doing Fine Now” Following Treatment After Herpes Infection Rendered Her Blind. I thought that well, if you’re going to suffer through the horrible and terrifying fuckery of eyeball issues, it may as well be from something fucked-up yet interesting like HERPES. Unlike me, whose eyeball issues are from just shitty genetics.
But Mel B says that yes, it’s true that her vision is going through it, but it doesn’t seem like it’s because of Coachella’s #1 parting gift: herpes. And the Spice Girls (Minus Posh) reunion tour will go on!
The people at Eminem’s set at Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee on Friday night, probably anticipated the hallmarks of an Eminem set. Like rap growling performed under a brimmed black military hat, or possibly a mention of Detroit. What they didn’t expect was the sound of gunshots firing around them. According to Eminem, everyone can calm down, because he wasn’t traumatizing the audience with the sound of gunfire.
According to TMZ, a Rihanna fan recently tried to get close to her in several very illegal ways. Police sources says cops were called to her home in Los Angeles yesterday morning after being alerted by her assistant to a potential intruder that may have tampered with her security system. Once there, they found 26-year-old Eduardo Leon, who had apparently stayed the whole night. Eduardo was asked to leave the house, and he was tased by police while being detained (TMZ isn’t sure why there were tasers involved). It’s not known how he got in to Rihanna’s house, or if he tried to take anything while he was inside.
According to TMZ, Will Ferrell encountered a scary situation on a highway while returning home from San Diego last night. No, he didn’t get into a road rage accident after accidentally whipping a burrito out the window of his car and hitting a biker in the face.
Jeopardy! will (sadly) be without their smarmy grandpa host for a while, as Alex Trebek is recovering from some major brain surgery. Please lord please tell me the doctor who tinkered with his brain didn’t touch the part responsible for roasting contestants. Nobody is watching Jeopardy! for the Daily Double.
Alex dropped a video yesterday, explaining that about two months ago, he fell and suffered a subdural hematoma (in basic terms, he got blood clots on his brain). He was taken to the hospital on December 16th, where he went in for surgery to fix the damage of that subdural hematoma. Two days later, he went home to recover. Alex is doing fine, but he still has to take it easy.
Here’s Alex talking about his medical scare in what I assume is his living room. The answer: TINY CERAMIC PANDAS. The question: what is my favorite element of that living room?
Variety says that Alex will be on medical leave from Jeopardy! for a few more weeks. He’s scheduled to return mid-January. Jeopardy! producer Sony Pictures TV tells Variety that Alex is expected to make a full recovery. Jeopardy! tapes long in advance, so there won’t be any major schedule upsets. The only change will be that the annual College Championship episodes will air in April instead of March.
Alex shouldn’t rush himself. If he doesn’t feel like coming back just yet, I’m sure Jeopardy! could find another grey-haired man in his late-70s with hosting experience. Is Maury Povich available for some evening work? I would definitely watch Maury reveal the answer to Final Jeopardy as the winning contestant busted out a victory dance to the Jeopardy! theme.
