Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - Jun 22, 2016
June 22, 2016
Pimples are in fashion now! This is either the best --or the worst-- skin care news ever! For Milan's Men's Fashion Week, designer MOTO GUO showcased his debut runway collection for Pitti Uomo with male and female models all made up with varying degrees of nasty acne outbreaks. And this was done on purpose --the models showed up for work with their clear, model-perfect skin, and make-up artists gave them acne! (Usually, you use make-up to cover the acne --not the other way around!)
Racked.com says the "nerdy chic collection" also featured models with "disheveled, mousy hairstyles to go with their whimsical, childlike clothing." Other Italian designers like Gucci's ALESSANDRO MICHELE and MIUCCIA PRADA's Miu Miu label are also showcasing fashion heavy with "quirky weirdness."
Another Chalk Outline:
When you buy a house you don't actually expect to find REAL skeletons in the closet! A home in Pennsylvania was taken over by town officials after property taxes weren't paid for three years and it was sold the highest bidder. MARK PONCE knew he was going to have to do some work on the home and started straight away. He and his friend went inside and started looking around and found the decomposed body of the previous owner, MICHAEL MEITZLER, who was 57. "It's sad that people forget about each other really," Ponce said. "Life goes on, everybody's so busy and we forget about each other." The coroner believes that Meitzler died of natural causes and had been dead at least three years. (Myers)
Warning: Note potential sponsor conflict!
A YouTube user has developed a brand new way to eat fast food.
YouTuber 'Bad Things for Bad People' created a smoothie by placing nine McDonald's cheeseburgers, soda, and a bag of fries in a juicer machine. He calls the drink "Junk Juice." And, he can be seen in the video wolfing down the entire concoction, some of which he spits out. The viral clip has nearly 400-thousand views. (Still)
Grace notes from Vinny Marino:
All three Georgia locations of GLADYS KNIGHT's Chicken and Waffle restaurants were raided yesterday by the state's department of revenue. TMZ.com says customers had to put down their food and leave the premises while agents carried out files, computers and whatever was in the safe in each of the three stores. The singer's son, SHANGA HANKERSON owns the restaurants and he's on the hook for allegedly cooking the books to the tune of $1-million dollars. Gladys released a statement that she has nothing to do with the restaurants or their operations. She only allowed Shanga to use her name as a celebrity endorsement. (Marino)
