JK Rowling Is No Longer a Billionaire…Why?

Has J.K. Rowling lost a significant amount of her fortune?

Has J.K. Rowling lost a significant amount of her fortune?

In recent years, Forbes has estimated that the HARRY POTTER scribe was worth about $1 Billion.  Now, Forbes is reporting that she is down to only about 640 Million Pounds.

The reason?  Don’t worry, fans…it isn’t a crazy shopping spree, nor bad investments or a horrible drug or alcohol addiction…it’s all because of good old tax paying and charity!

Turns out Rowling paid all her taxes on time last year, and gave a huge chunk of change, roughly $160 million, to charity!

Something tells me that Rowling will be okay, and not living on the street anytime soon…

Marge Simpson Makes Rare Political Statement After Being Used To Make Fun Of Kamala Harris

Published

D’oh-n’t mess with Marge.

You know it’s a crazy time in politics when animated housewives are getting involved. That’s right, the beloved, blue-haired mom Marge Simpson who has been dazzling our television screens for over thirty years has actually felt the need to speak out during this particularly vicious political time.

Earlier this week campaign advisor and lawyer to President Trump, Jenna Ellis, insulted presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris’s voice by saying it sounds like that of Marge Simpson’s. Well the creative team behind The Simpsons wasted no time and took to Twitter to post a short video response.

Marge’s response isn’t insulting or harsh but a little heartbreaking in fact. After saying she consulted with her daughter Lisa, the brainiac of the family, and discovered the comparison in voices was not in fact a compliment, she condemns Jenna for name calling.

“If that’s so, as an ordinary suburban housewife, I’m starting to feel a little disrespected. I teach my children not to name-call, Jen-na” the mom of three says.

Of course this isn’t the first time that The Simpsons have gotten political but is always a bit discerning when cartoons have stronger values than those working in our government.

Prankster Steve-O Has Duct Taped Himself To An LA Billboard To Promote New Show

Jackass or genius?

Infamous prankster and Jackass star Stephen Gilchrist Glover aka Steve-O has duct taped himself to a billboard in Los Angeles to promote his new comedy web series Gnarly. When you’ve made a living out of insane stunts and death defying acts, I suppose a standard billboard with a photo of yourself just simply won’t do.

The 46-year old took to Instagram to share a selfie from his elevated position to reassure fans that he was secured by professionals and is totally safe. He wrote “I’m attached to a billboard right now and want to emphasize that a team of real professionals rigged everything safely. There is zero chance of me falling, and it’s important to me that we not waste any valuable city resources on this. I’m happy to just hang out, and really want the world to know about this project I worked so hard on. It’s called Gnarly and, If you’re over 18, check it out at steveo.com! Thanks!”

Obviously the stunt quickly garnered media attention and despite being installed safely, the Los Angeles Fire Department was swiftly notified. The LAFD quickly arrived to the scene of the billboard stunt, which just so happens to stand near a busy highway, extended a ladder to the clown college graduate and brought him down to safety.

Well now I want to see what other crazy antic he gets into…I guess the publicity stunt worked!
