MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ is apologizing after putting her foot in her mouth once again. On Friday night, Michelle said that minority actors deserve their own characters and should "Stop stealing all the white people's superheroes." Michelle later clarified on her Facebook page, "What I really meant was that...I think there are many cultures in Hollywood that are not white and that can come up with their own mythology. It doesn't matter what culture you come from. I'm just saying that instead of trying to turn a girl character into a guy or instead of trying to turn a white character into a black character or a Latin character, I think that people should stop being lazy and people should actually make an effort in Hollywood to develop their own mythology."

It's been nearly a year since Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared and a new theory from senior Boeing 777 captain Simon Hardy is gaining support. Captain Hardy spent six months analyzing flight data and he says the pilot did a fly-by of his home island of Penang in what he says was a 'last farewell' before deliberately landing the plane on the water, where it sank intact.

Jennifer Alvarez's boyfriend called police in Casa Grande, Arizona to report her missing and finding blood inside their home. By the time deputies arrived at the home, Jennifer was there, but gave differing accounts as to her disappearance. First, she explained that she felt overwhelmed by the thought of having to plan her boyfriend's birthday party. Then she said a dental filling fell out, causing her mouth to bleed. Then she stated two men came to her home and when one asked to use the restroom the other stole her boyfriend's guns. Fearing her boyfriend would be angry, she wanted it to look as if something happened to her. Jennifer has more to be overwhelmed with now as police say they intend to file charges against her.
