Adolf Hitler was maniacal about more than just world domination during his evil reign over Germany in the 1930s and 40s.
In a new interview with The Telegraph, Margot Woelk explains that she was seized by the SS many decades ago and forced to become the dictator’s food taster for two-and-a-half years, checking meals everyday to be sure they were not laced with poison.
“Only after all of us had tried it was it driven to the headquarters by the SS,” Woelk tells the newspaper. “It was all vegetarian, the most delicious fresh things, from asparagus to peppers and peas, served with riceMore >
With the Washington Redskins enjoying success for the first time in decades, there’s been talk in the nation’s capital of bringing the team’s home field back to D.C., as opposed to its current location in Maryland.
But Mayor Vincent Gray has a condition if such a transfer were to take place:
The team’s name will need to change.
“I think it has become a lightning rod, and I would love to be able to sit down with the team… and see if a change should be made,” Gray said of the moniker many find offensive to Native Americans.
“There’s a precedent for this, and I think there needsMore >
Demand a plan, Hollywood stars?
A new viral video sends a very different message: Demand Celebrities Go F–k Themselves.
YouTube user Mike Hunt has created a response to the PSA recorded a few weeks ago by various famous faces – from Jamie Foxx to Jason Bateman – in which celebrities urge the public to push for stricter gun control laws.
“I was immediately struck by the irony of their entire campaign,” Hunt tells EW. “Here are a bunch of vapid Hollywood celebrities attempting to shame the public into submitting toMore >
That’s the general message sent in the following video by Hasan Minhaj, an Indian comedian who says in the missive to Kutcher in the missive:
“You have a sh-tty accent and you’re not even being racist correctly. Okay, look. Maybe Popchips didn’t consciously want to offend minorities. But subconsciously they knew they could get away with clowning Indians and Asians. Because that’s the way it is now. They wouldn’t do that with any other ethnicity.”
While making some funny jokes, MinhajMore >
Mitt Romney’s wealth and detachment – perceived or legitimate – from the common voter was certainly evident in Saturday’s South Carolina primary results.
It also became fodder for late night comedians, or even Jay Leno for that matter. Sorry. Anyway, furing his monologue on Thursday, Jay got in on the act.
The Tonight Show host presented a clip from The Insider that included photos of the homes of presidential hopefuls Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul and Romney.
Only instead of revealing Romney’s real summer home, the bit replaced the original shot with one of the Golden Temple of Amristar inMore >

Elizabeth Hurley’s marriage to Arun Nayar is likely over.
The British model and actress and designer Tweeted Sunday, amid reports of her cheating on Nayar: “Not a great day. For the record, my husband Arun and I have separated as of few months ago. Our close family & friends were aware.”
Hurley’s announcement coincided with a scandalous report in Britain’s News of the World claiming her alleged affair with cricket player Shane Warne.
She and Nayar, an Indian businessman and textile heir, began dating in 2003 and got married in March 2007 at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire, UK.

Not a great day. For the record, my husband Arun & I separated a few months ago. Our close family & friends were aware of
(HMG Celebrity Gossip) – Yesterday news broke via Life & Style sources that Demi Lovato was also drinking and using drugs prior to her final meltdown that sent her to rehab.

(HMG Celebrity News) – When the original announcement came out that Demi Lovato was heading to rehab, I knew there was going to be a lot of side stories. There was the Joe Jonas breakup caused Demi to go off the deep-end angle. The fight with one of her female dancers was the last straw, which is probably true. And Demi had perhaps fallen back to her alleged history of eating issues and cutting. But now Life & Style sources claim that (cover your ears Mickey) the Disney star was also drinking and using drugs. Supposed insiders told L & S (via HuffPro) that her downward spiral after theMore >

Following almost a full day in which the loved ones of Abby Sunderland feared this 16-year sailor was lost at sea, a search plane made contact with Sutherland last week and assured the world:
Abby is alive and well.
Reports indicate a giant wave knocked Abby unconscious for a short period of time on Thursday before she recovered and activiated a pair of emergency satellite beacons. Since then, a French fishing vessel has scooped up Sunderland and rescued her from the harsh conditions of the Indian Ocean.
Aboard this new boat, Sunderland found time to update her blog and wrote:

(HMG) – Abby Sunderland, 16, who was feared to have been lost in the Indian Ocean has been found alive and well. The young sailor hit trouble when her 40ft sloop Wild Eyes encountered bad weather in the frigid southern Indian Ocean. A massive international search and rescue operation was launched yesterday when Sunderland set off two emergency beacons thousands of miles from land after losing satellite phone communication with her support team in America. The 16-year-old Southern California sailor whose around-the-world solo voyage began in January successfully linked up with an AustralianMore >
Authorities have begun a search for Abby Sunderland.

“Everything seemed to be under control,” father Laurence Sunderland told The Los Angeles Times. “But then our call dropped and a hour later the coast guard called.”
A rescue effort, coordinated by the French-controlled Reunion Islands and Australia, is underway. However, Sunderland is likely hundreds ofMore >
