The BLAKE SHELTON and MIRANDA LAMBERT divorce is turning into a case of he said/she said. Some reports say that it was Miranda that had a long-term affair with someone in the music business and when Blake confronted her about it, she admitted to it. However, other reports say it was Blake that cheated with an unnamed country singer. In any case, it's getting pretty nasty behind the scenes as Blake ordered Miranda to clear her exotic animals off his Oklahoma ranch. Meanwhile, Blake was in New Hampshire last Saturday for a NASCAR race and stopped by a bar where everyone raised their shot glasses, but no one knew an appropriate toast until Blake chimed in, "Divorce!" He also hit a karaoke bar and performed Tracy Byrd's "I'm From the Country." (See here)

If you're wondering what the odds are of that happening, a math professor at the University of Moncton calculated it to be one in 2.6 trillion. Peter said, "I honestly expected to get hit by lightning again first," adding that he plans to use the money to pay bills and take his wife of 30 years on a second honeymoon.

Walter Neal Thompson stopped at Guntersville, Alabama's Overlook Inn to get a room. Unfortunately, Walter was turned down because he had no I.D. After being told to leave, Walter emptied two fire extinguishers in the office, and then went to a nearby construction site, where he found a truck with a flamethrower.
