You probably won't be seeing REBEL WILSON on Keeping Up With the Kardashians anytime soon. Rebel was doing an interview with an Australian radio station when she revealed she was once asked to present with Kendall and Kylie Jenner at the MTV Video Music Awards and she said 'no.' Rebel went on to say, "It's not that you hate any of them individually, but it's just that everything they stand for is against everything I stand for. They seem a bit superficial and their careers aren't really based on talent." Rebel wasn't done as she added, "I mean how Kim Kardashian got famous from the sex tape and I just went to acting school and worked really hard."

For reasons that are unclear, Fairfax, Virginia's Hussani White placed electronic items from his apartment into the oven and set the place on fire. Police arrived to have a naked Hussani attack them, hitting two officers multiple times and dragging one of them down the stairs. Police were able to subdue him with the help of pepper spray, but not before eight officers had to be treated for burns, smoke inhalation and other injuries. Hussani was charged with assaulting police officers and attempted arson and perhaps the most amazing part of the story is that there was no mention of drugs being involved.
