Jill Duggar, from the reality show "19 Kids & Counting," is getting married and says she and her fiancee won't have their first kiss until their wedding day. Not only that, they plan to wait until their 10th anniversary to have sex.
JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS appears naked on the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone magazine with a presumably fake tattoo of the U.S. Constitution on her back. We can only hope for her sake that it's fake. Those who took their eyes off Julia's butt crack for a second noticed a major oops. The U.S. Constitution on her back is signed by John Hancock. The problem is Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution. Julia jokingly blamed the goof on Mike McClintock, the fictional "Veep" character played by Matt Walsh who serves as communications director to her Vice President Selina Meyer character. Julia tweeted: "Yet another Mike (expletive)-up. Dummy."
Model KATHERINE WEBB and football player fiancé AJ MCCARRON are reportedly getting their own reality show, which may include a televised wedding. However, their wedding is coming up in July and that may not leave enough time to put all the pieces into place.

It's now reported that legalized marijuana could become an $8.2 billion retail business by 2018. That's a 33% jump over earlier forecasts and a five-fold increase over expected 2014 retail and medical sales. According to Marijuana Business Daily, the $8.2 billion sales estimate could be conservative and doesn't include wholesale revenue or marijuana-related products. To put it in perspective, $8 billion in annual sales is about the same spent every year in the U.S. on pet medications and worldwide for premium chocolate.

New York's 30-year-old Shieed Haniff was recently busted for DUI, reckless driving and refusing to take a breath test and had his license revoked. The incident began when Haniff was stopped in Brooklyn. Apparently not wanting to chat with officers, he sped off, promptly plowing through a traffic stop, forcing officers to jump out of the way before he hit a car, made a u-turn and crashed into another vehicle. The officers may have recognized Haniff as he was a seven-year NYPD veteran that likely won't make it to year number eight.
