July 25, 2016
Idle gossip & unconfirmed rumors:
Be warned, boys --IGGY AZALEA's not gonna be a cheap date when she decides to get back in the romance game. The Australian rapper revealed to TMZ.com that she would notconsider online dating, but was quite grateful when a paparazzi photographers suggested she'd "kill it on Tinder."
If you do get the chance to make breakfast for NICK YOUNG's former fiancee, you'll need to have the kitchen ready --she prefers waffles to pancakes. (Lee)
Supermodel ADRIANA LIMA says you should put perfume in your belly button... which may be the most supermodel-y thing for a supermodel to say. The Brazilian Victoria's Secret model told The Covateur, "If you see me on the runway, my routine really is that I spritz fragrance on myself before I walk." In addition to her belly button, Ariana says she spritzes her hair, behind her ears and behind her knees! The reason: she thinks the fragrances helps give her confidence and sexiness. (Bartha)
In the Dumper:
So much for trusting medical personnel. CHRISTOPHER WIMMER, who's 33, and KAYLA RENEE DUBOIS, who's 24, both paramedics in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, are out of jobs after they apparently started a "selfie war" with each to see who could take the most pics of themselves with patients who were incapacitated.
Dubois was arrested and charged with two felonies, interception and disclosure of oral communications. Wimmer's charges are more serious --he's facing seven felony counts and a misdemeanor battery charge. The incidents included 41 patients, three of whom actually agreed to be photographed. The pics were shared with other EMT personnel. Dubois was fired, Wimmer resigned the same day. (Myers)
Broadcast, cable and video news:
Look for RIHANNA to play Marion Crane --the character JANET LEIGH played in the original ALFRED HITCHCOCK movie, "Psycho"-- in the fifth and final season of A&E's prequel series, "Bates Motel" which will air in 2017.
Quotable: "Because who knows more about psychos than the girl who dated CHRIS BROWN?" (A-List Comedy)
The news leaked out during the show's panel at Comic Con in San Diego over the weekend. VERA FARMIGA also will be back as Norma Bates after she was nearly killed off last season. Also revealed at Comic-Con, Rihanna has a role in director LUC BESSON's upcoming sci-fi movie, "Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets." She'll play an alien dancer working at a nightclub.

Warning: Note disturbing content!
We have a tragic story out of China, where a woman was eaten by a tiger.
It happened at Badaling Wildlife World, a safari park near the Great Wall. Video from the scene shows a visitor leaving her car, ignoring posted warning. She's followed by another woman who is immediately attacked and killed by a Siberian tiger. The first woman was also seriously injured. A man and a child who were also in the vehicle were unharmed. Police say the women had exited the car because of a family argument. It's unclear what will happen to the tiger.
It's not the first time a tiger has killed someone at the same safari park. A male employee was attacked there two years ago. (Still)
