This week, a mogul and reality star is running for president and a ’90s sitcom star is arrested on suspicion of DUI.
The unthinkable has finally happened. Real estate mogul Donald Trump is officially running for President of the United States in a move that surprised many; even if only because he’s talked about it so long and is actually following through.
Trump announced his bid in New York City at a press conference on Tuesday morning , and ever since, things have just gotten funnier and funnier. To begin, Trump’s announcement was instant fodder for late night comics like Jon Stewart, Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O’Brien and even soon-to-be “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert.
Then news was revealed by The Hollywood Reporter that the billionaire made a casting call for actors to cheer on his presidential announcement for $50.
And things still didn’t stop there as Trump also commented that his running mate should be Oprah Winfrey, saying “I think Oprah would be great. I’d love to have Oprah. I think we’d win easily actually.”
For some reason, the idea of Oprah being on the campaign trail with Trump sounds like both an awful and amazing idea, all at once. Can we get a reality show of that?
’90s star John Stamos was arrested on DUI charges, sending the “Full House” actor to the big house.
Beverly Hills Police confirmed that the sitcom star was arrested in Beverly Hills last Friday before being taken to a hospital because of an undisclosed medical condition.
Stamos was later released from the hospital, and since then, has actually thanked the Beverly Hills Police Department for taking care of him along with the hospital he stayed at, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
He is scheduled to appear in court September 11, police say.
The ever-provocative Miley Cyrus used her breasts to help auction off her Caitlyn Jenner-inspired art pieces at amfAR’s Inspiration Gala this week. The pieces, which feature photos of Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover covered in glitter and paint, fetched $65,000 before Cyrus grabbed the mic to up the ante.
“My left boob is awkwardly bigger than my right one, and I’ll show you the left one if we can get it to…alright, we’re at $65, what about $69?” she announced, “$69. I’ll clean your house. Naked.”
Needless to say, it didn’t take much time for the auction to reach $69,000.
