Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - Sep 16, 2016
September 16, 2016
Idle gossip & unconfirmed rumors:
Is LIAM PAYNE getting ready for the pitter-patter of little feet? The ONE DIRECTION stud sent the Twitterverse into a tailspin when changed his bio to read: "The happiest man in the world." Understandably, teen female fans are flipping out over rumors that his girlfriend, CHERYL FERNANDEZ-VERSINI, could be in a "delicate condition" and one threatened to "fight someone" if the news is true.

On, off and way-off-Broadway:

Cover your eyes! Hide your children! We have to warn you... There has been an unholy union of Teva shoes and Ugg boots. The spawn this union has created is, without a doubt --the absolute ugliest shoe in the world! Racked.com says the "abomination" (their word) has the shape of a regular Teva sandal, with a slab of wooly sheepskin on top of the foot and at the heel. Oh, and the toes remain exposed. It's one redeeming quality: the Teva-Uggs (TevUggs? Or maybe simply,"Tuggs?" feel like a pillow on your feet. The "incredible monstrosity" of the shoes feel like heaven on your toes, cozy and wrapped around the feet with velcro straps under layers of UGGpure wool. (Bartha)
Trailer Park update:
Officials on Long Island, New York found a home filled with hundreds of pigeons.
Police raided the home after receiving a tip about the birds. Inside, they allegedly found 350 pigeons uncaged and flying around the house. The 68-year-old resident was taken away on a stretcher for an "evaluation." Officers say the house was covered in two-feet of pigeon waste and had no running water. One SPCA worker even fell through a rotted floor during the bird evacuation. (Still)
