Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans may recognize Chapman Ducote. The professional race car driver made his reality show debut this season on the show’s special edition, Kim and Kourtney Take Miami. As the new best friend of Kourtney’s husband, Scott Disick, Wetpaint.com described his initial appearance as “love at first sight.” If viewers feel the same way, perhaps we may expect more of him on entertainment television.

Congratulations on making “The National Enquirer.” And you didn’t need a fake alien kidnapping romance! They wrote in February, “Kourtney told Scott that if he continues to listen to Chapman instead of her, their relationship will be over.” Nice. Anything you want to say about this?
You’d have to ask Kourtney about that one. I’ve certainly never heard her say anything like that.

Have you experienced any jealousy, stink eyes or craziness now that you’re on TV, or is that strictly something women do to each other yet to happen in your world?
So far, it’s been all positive. So far … just cool fans telling me that I was a great addition and wanting to know more about me.

When you met Scott Disick, had you seen lots of “Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s?”
No, not one episode. I spent a few days catching up because I was curious once I met the family, but in general I don’t watch too much TV.

That show is kind of far-fetched in its production. I mean, aside from the actual show, their film crew is huge. Then, you have the people traveling with them like assistants, businessmen/businesswomen and PR. What was it like being part of this big circle?
Pretty low key actually. The crew was surprisingly small while shooting, although I’m sure there are a lot of people who work behind the scenes. The crew was warm and friendly, but really they just disappear once the camera starts rolling, which makes it easy to just be yourself and let them follow you around.

Among complaints I hear, people often tell me, “That show is for women.” Why do you think you bring now, male viewers? Have you met a lot of them now that you’re on TV?
I think that’s a common misconception. I’ve met a lot of male Kardashian fans. They always tell me, “I liked you on the show, my girlfriend watches it.” In other words – they watch and enjoy the show too, but blame it on their girlfriends! Since my episodes have aired, I have gotten quite a few thank yous for adding “guy content.” But, really, I think guys enjoy the show as much as girls, they just don’t admit it.

I guess common ground between you and the Kardashian family is a love for all things money and business. Please tell everyone what you do outside of racing.
Outside of racing, I’m involved in several business interests, but I’m mostly immersed in my payment businesses. I have a credit card processing business and one that facilitates payments on the internet with or without credit cards. I’m also involved in several real estate development projects and have been doing that for years. In addition, I’m involved in the publishing and distribution of my wife’s book, “Naked Paddock” which is a fiction novel about racing and inspired by real life. I think there is a high likelihood it will become a movie.

And regarding pro racing, what are the demands involved?
It’s all that being a professional athlete entails, and then some. You need to be in peak physical condition, and I do mean peak (I’ll take a challenge from any athlete on that). You need to be of sharp mind to make quick life or death decisions on track, and you need to have the business acumen to maintain strong sponsorships and endorsements. Oh, and you need to have a screw loose, that’s a pre-requisite! It’s extremely hard work and requires more dedication that most people would imagine, but it’s also a lot of fun.

Now that you’re on TV for non-sports reasons, what are you going to do, as a reality TV personality, businessman and so on? You cannot let this good luck escape you!
I’m going to do what I know how to do best. I’m going to keep building my businesses, and keep building my racing career. If more TV comes my way, given the right circumstances, I’d embrace it. But, it needs to be in line with what I do in this world. I have a pretty cool life, and TV hasn’t changed it in the least. And I won’t let it either, unless it is for the better.

The Pentagon Has Released Official UFO Videos Because 2020 Is The Absolute Worst

Published

on

Aren’t swarms of locusts supposed to be the next installment of this plague?!

Can we finally declare 2020 as the worst year ever? In January there were fears of a third World War. In February the coronavirus began its rapid spread. In March the world essentially shut down due to social distancing and quarantining. And now in April…with only two days left in the month…we have official government footage of unidentified flying objects. I’m sorry but Milton Bradley’s game of “Life” never prepared me for any of this!

The Pentagon has confirmed the authenticity of three videos that have been circulating the web but didn’t really answer what is visible in them. In the videos, now declassified by the Department of Defense, navy pilots capture “unidentified aerial phenomena” aka unidentified flying objects aka UFOs! Pentagon officials were sure to state that the videos do not show “any sensitive capabilities or systems,” meaning we probably won’t be seeing any little green men any time soon.

The first video dates back to November 2004 and the other two from January 2015. Of the Pentagon’s confirmation of authenticity, Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough said the videos were released “in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos.”

So great. We now know that these strange videos are real but what exactly are we looking at? Well, the Department of Defense says it has no concrete answer as to what might be floating around the skies and has classified the phenomena as “unidentified.” And…just like that I suddenly feel less defended.

Social media is having a field day with this revelation of course. The #AliensAreReal has been trending high on Twitter since the news broke. One user referenced Independence Day and said the aliens are “getting ready for July 4th.” Of the bad timing, another wrote “Et tu aliens?” And finally one user couldn’t help avoid sarcasm and wrote”Where’s the space force when you need it?”

Well 2020, you have worked your awful black magic once again. What’s next, cat videos get banned from the internet?! You’ve taken everything else from us!

Priest Accidentally Forgets To Turn Off Filters Before Live Streaming Mass

Published

The internet is having a field day with the innocent mistake of biblical proportions.

With new social distancing guidelines, many churches have closed to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. And while that doesn’t justify all the wine you’ve been chugging during your self quarantine, it does have many people practicing their faith from their homes. One Italian priest was just trying to recite a little prayer for his followers when he accidentally left a filter feature on during the broadcast! In the clip the priest is digitally adorned with a space helmet, workout gear, a fedora and sunglasses and more.

Social media went nuts for the video, which has now gone viral. One comment reads “He just doubled his holy power.” Another reads “Father, Son and Holy Influencer.” One commenter couldn’t resist a good pun and said the video is having a “Mass effect.”

Enjoy your daily blessing and take a look at the funny video below!

Danny DeVito Passionately Urges New Yorkers To Stay Home…And Twitter Agrees!

Published

For the love of Danny DeVito, stay home!

The world is in a dark place right now and I am not sure how much more bad news we can handle. That’s why when I saw Danny DeVito’s name trending on Twitter I froze. Our great nation could very well crumble if anything bad was to happen to such an icon right now. With extreme trepidation I clicked on the social media link and was relieved to see that good ol’ Danny boy is just strumming up hype because he is passionately urging New Yorkers to stay home.

Amid the coronavirus outbreak, Governor Andrew Cuomo has been driving New Yorkers to stay home and has taken every precaution short of shutting the state down completely to help prevent the virus from spreading. Because New Yorkers can be hard headed, it doesn’t hurt to have some famous friends reiterate your message. Big names like Lala Anthony, Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller have all made appearances on Cuomo’s social media pleading with New Yorker’s to heed the governors warning. Only one celebrity was able to make it to Twitter’s trending page however and that was none other than Danny DeVito. DeVito’s message is simple…stay home! In the two minute video, DeVito reminds fans that it’s not just up to the elderly to isolate themselves. “Young people can get it and they can transmit it to old people and the next thing you know – I’m out of there” says the actor. We must save him!

Twitter went into a frenzy with many users agreeing that we need to stay home for Danny. One user wrote “When Danny speaks, I listen.” Another passionately wrote “If you idiots kill Danny DeVito I SWEAR TO GOD.” One promoted DeVito from the icon status I previously awarded him and said “WE GOTTA PROTECT WORLD TREASURE DANNY DeVITO.” 

Take a look at the video below and for the love of the newly minted national treasure, stay home!
