The answer, Hulk Hogan hopes? Calm the heck down.
For reasons unknown, the former wrestling great appeared on BBC Radio this week and offered his take on the upheaval in Britain.

Filming yourself choking a porn star and then committing suicide is sure to upset a few folks.
But a British group known as Mothers Against Violence has taken criticism of Eminem to a new level. In a recent statement, the organization bashes the heck out of the rapper for his “Space Bound” music video (below), referring to the star as “evil.”

Amber Portwood’s ex, Gary Shirley, got into an “argument” at Buffalo Wild Wings in Anderson, Ind., and wouldn’t you know it, the cameras were there.
As we reported yesterday, Amber broke up with Clinton Yunker, her latest boyfriend, this week. As he celebrated his single status, Gary walked in …

Did MTV not only allow, but encourage Amber Portwood to lay the smack down on Gary Shirley on Teen Mom? That’s the allegation of a new tabloid report.
Portwood is planning to use that as a defense against the felony charges she faces after manhandling Gary on a recent episode, the National Enquirer says.
Just when we were willing to give Teen Mom its due for lowering teen pregnancy rates, we learn MTV may be handing out bonuses for domestic violence. Wow.
Amber caught Gary off guard. The producers? Possibly not.

Without being asked about the star of the English Patient, the French actor said: “Please can you explain to me what the mystery of Juliette Binoche is meant to be?”
“I would really like to know why she has been so esteemed for so many years. SheMore >

The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the actor for alleged domestic battery, assault with a deadly weapon and child endangerment.
The investigation is based on the following:
