Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - Jul 16, 2014
July 16, 2014
15 years ago: the private plane carrying JOHN F KENNEDY, Jr, his wife CAROLYN and sister-in-law, LAUREN BESSETTE, went down in the fog off of Martha's Vineyard, killing all three (1999).
At least 21 people were killed and 136 injured yesterday when a Moscow subway train derailed during the morning rush hour.
Sucking the life out of the wire services:
SANDRA BULLOCK has nerves of steel. TMZ.com reports the A-lister came face-to-face with JOSHUA CORBETT when he broke into her home last month! The gossip site got a peek at a search warrant, which states that she heard banging outside her home, went to lock her bedroom door and saw him standing right there.
Mr. Corbett allegedly began apologizing profusely, begged her not to press charges and is now facing 19 felony counts for owning an arsenal of weapons in addition to burglary and stalking. (Lee)
What's hot in Hollywood from Star magazine:
--Fabletics, athletic-wear designed by KATE HUDSON for fashion and flexability, www.fabletics.com
--Pirate's Booty Mac & Cheese, $2.20 a box at grocery stores (Myers)
On, off and way-off Broadway:
"Rocky" just got knocked out. Playbill.com says the musical based on the SYLVESTER STALLONE movies will close on Sunday, August 17th. By then, it will have played 28 previews and 188 regular performances. The show cost $15-million dollars to produce, and only took home one Tony, for set design which usually does nothing to spark ticket sales. A national and international tour still may happen.

HILLARY CLINTON was on JON STEWART's show last night, but refused to spill.
Jon introduced her by saying, "She's here solely for one reason: to publicly and definitively declare her candidacy for President of the United States... I think."
Grace notes from Vinny Marino:
Remember those three idiots who got arrested for throwing beer bottles and flipping the bird at security guards in front of TAYLOR SWIFT's mansion in Maine? TMZ.com says they are way smarter than you. There were two men and a woman. One of the men is a 28-year old with a master of science in chemical oceanography. The woman is a 26-year-old nuclear scientist. Ok, the other guy is a 29-year-old ferry crew member, but still, these are not your average drunken hooligans! The trio pleaded not guilty yesterday to disorderly conduct. (Marino)
Lots of girls want to look like KIM KARDASHIAN, but CLAIRE LEESON will do absolutely anything to make it happen! PerezHilton.com reports the wannabe reality princess has dropped $30-thousand dollars on a (ahem) breast augmentation, teeth whitening, hair extensions, make-up, fake fans, nails, shoes, clothing and a even pretend rear end to mimic Kim's style.
Although she's put every bill on credit, the 24-year-old believes it's worth every cent and feels "unstoppable and untouchable" when she get her "Kimmy on." (Lee)
