Bigfoot is in Oregon.
At least according to a number of recent reports from residents in the rural, eastern part of the state all claiming that Sasquatch is alive and well.Bigfoot in Oregon?
People living near the Umatilla Indian Reservation have reported that they have been woken up by strange sounds coming from the nearby forest.
Bigfoot “sightings,” while obviously unconfirmed, are actually fairly common in Eastern Oregon (see video above for one of the many posted online).
They’ve described the noise as like roaring and screeching, which they say sounds nothing likeMore >
With the lovely, supportive Kate Middleton by his side, Prince William was knighted as a member of the Order of the Thistle in Scotland on Thursday.
He received the title from his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II – the highest honor she can bestow in Scotland – around his 30th birthday last month.
In a nod to her Scottish title, the Countess of Strathearn, Kate Middleton wore a soft yellow coat dress specially made for her by Emilia Wickstead.
Kate and William fell in love at St. Andrews University, just outside the Scottish capital, Edinburgh, where the grand ceremony took place at St.More >
It’s Paris Fashion Week, which means one thing: we’re about to be bombarded with countless examples of hideous outfits that pompous designers and celebrities pretend are hip and chic and totally the next trend.
In reality, they’re just stupid looking.
Case in point: Kim Kardashian and the following black dress, which appears to be growing some kind of weed along one side of it. She may wanna call in an exterminator for this monstrosity…
Kardashian, of course, is accompanied here to the Stephane Rolland Fashion Show by boyfriend Kanye West, about whom she recently gushed to Oprah.
During Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee celebration in June, Kate Middleton appeared to be fully embraced as a member of the royal family … only to receive the equivalent of a DIRECT SLAP IN THE FACE from the BITTER QUEEN herself!
Yes, Life & Style claims that one of the longest-reigning monarchs in European history is jealous of Kate Middleton. How, you ask, was Kate supposedly dissed and dismissed?
In an official revision to the Royal Household’s Order of Precedence, Kate is required to curtsy to Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s two daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, as they’re bothMore >
Two hats worn by Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton before her marriage to Britain’s Prince William were recently sold at auction for fairly big bucks.
One, which she wore to a wedding in October 2010, went for the equivalent of $5,080 and the other for $5,030. Not a small amount for an accessory.
Interestingly, both of the hats were rented … who rents hats? Apparently if you’re the UK’s most fashionable young woman, it’s par for the course.
Given that Prince Charles reportedly picks up the tab for all work-related Kate Middleton wardrobe costs, she can afford to rent the best of theMore >
Amid her escalating financial problems, the La Habra, Calif., home of “Octomom” Nadya Suleman is scheduled to go up for auction Monday, according to reports.
Suleman and her kids could face eviction if the house is sold.
This, obviously, would compound her problems after recent allegations she had been neglecting her 14 children while spending hundreds on Brazilian blowouts.
The vile living conditions at Octomom’s house led to a visit last week from police officials and social workers, but her kids haven’t been taken away … yet.
The complaint said the children appeared to be malnourishedMore >
If he had had his way, Hugh Hefner would have exchanged vows with Crystal Harris in the summer of 2011.
But the Playboy founder says he won’t be making that same mistake in the new year, telling People this week that he “dodged a bullet” when Harris dumped him days before their scheduled June wedding.
“I am clearly not meant to be married,” the 85-year old said. “Married life isn’t for me.”
Don’t cry for Hef, however. He’s far from lonely.
The bachelor refers to his latest girlfriends, Shera Berchard and Anna Berglund, as “special ladies” and told the magazine he’d be “on top of my game”More >
Dr. Conrad Murray will be sentenced next Tuesday, and how much jail time he serves will depend on what a judge decides after hearing arguments from both the defense and prosecution – which will be poles apart as you might expect.
The D.A. wants Michael Jackson’s former personal physician to spend the maximum possible four years in prison for his involuntary manslaughter conviction.
Meanwhile, defense attorneys asked that he only receive probation.
Prosecutors David Walgren and Deborah Brazil told Judge Michael Pastor that Murray showed no remorse for Jackson’s death and has blamed othersMore >
The literal deathbed where Michael Jackson passed away is no longer for sale.
Incredibly, the bed where Jackson died actually was for sale until recently.
Julien’s Auctions has removed the queen-sized headboard from its auction of items from 100 North Carolwood Drive in Los Angeles, Jackson’s last residence.
“This item is the only portion of the bed that had been listed for auction, and no part of the bed remains for sale,” company president Darren Julien said.

Kate Gosselin WILL be back on TV.
The reality star and perennial contender for Worst Person in America made this abundantly clear this morning, mere hours before Kate Plus 8 airs its last episode.
Even Jon Gosselin has a clue these days and recently told Kate to get a life – as in a normal life – but she told Today‘s Matt Lauer that her concerns lie elsewhere.
Kate hilariously/depressingly expressed concern for her show’s “devastated” fans whom she says must feel like they are losing their next-door neighbor.
While “there is some relief,” she said, “there is sadness, because it’s the endMore >
The Real Housewives of New Jersey were back this week and it truly was painful, in so many ways. Let’s relive all the action in THG’s + or – recap!
Teresa fills in Caroline and Jacqueline about her husband and brother’s text feud. Plus 10 goes immediately to Caroline who points out that fighting via text messages is for high school girls, not grown men. Of course, your average high school girl might have more common sense than this crowd.

Pop superstar Janet Jackson wants you to buy her “Miz Jackson, If Ya Nasty” Barbie Doll, but this isn’t your standard Barbie, it’s a one of a kind Jackson replica that will be auctioned off for a good cause.
According to Mattel Designer and Jackson Doll creator Jackeline Gonzalez:

Unbelievable, just when I thought I had seen it all, a toilet that once resided at John Lennon’s home was sold this weekend for $14,740.
The toilet sold at a Liverpool, England auction and was originally removed from Lennon’s Berkshire home sometime in the late ’60s.
The buyer was not revealed, but I’m willing to bet it was a really big Beatles fan or someone who really had to hit the lieu since they ponied up that much cash. [Eonline]
