After a long fight for her life, Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, has passed away at the age of 22 at a hospice center in Atlanta. The Houston family released a statement: "Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months." Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unconscious in a bathtub at her home on January 31st and had been in a coma ever since. Bobbi Kristina's passing comes a little more than three years after her mother's death, who also drowned in the bathtub in her suite at the Beverly Hilton hotel. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Houston family.
Wrestler Hulk Hogan issued an apology this weekend after the National Enquirer released a transcript of statements he made that included racial slurs. The remarks were recorded in an "unauthorized sex tape" and it was pretty bad and revolved around the dating life of his daughter, Brooke Hogan. Hulk Hogan said, "Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise. I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs. It is not who I am." Hulk Hogan finished his apology be saying that he resigned from his contractual relationship with the WWE, but the WWE said that they ended their business relationship with Hulk Hogan after everything came out. Awkward!
Chris Brown is a free man! After being stuck in the Philippines for three days because of a fraud complaint against him for a canceled concert last New Year's Eve, Chris Brown was able to get a certificate that allowed him to leave the country. Chris Brown tweeted about the whole thing, saying, "This is a very serious situation and someone needs to be held accountable for mixing my name up in all this. I've done nothing wrong." Chris Brown said he came back to do a show to make up for the canceled concert. Chris Brown missed other scheduled concerts because of this. I guess things are very serious over there!
Khloe Kardashian is setting the record straight after some fans accused a partygoer of doing drugs at a high school graduation party being held for Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Khloe Kardashian tweeted, "You guys will make up anything. No! No one was doing coke at a graduation party in broad daylight with teenagers and 15 production cameras! We aren't as wild as you want to believe. We were taking Jell-O shots though and you have to scrape the rim of the shot glass w ur finger to loosen up the jello in order 2 take it. Just say no to drugs kids! Drugs so not our style." Hopefully the jello shots weren't for Kendall and Kylie who are still underage!
Snoop Dogg was arrested in Sweden over the weekend and now he won't be going back! Why? Well, Snoop Dogg thinks that he was arrested simply because of the color of his skin. The police are saying they arrested Snoop Dogg because they thought he was driving under the influence of narcotics. Snoop Dogg is claiming he was clean. A police spokesman is saying that Snoop Dogg showed signs of driving under the influence and it will take 2 weeks to get the test results back. As for Snoop Dogg's allegation of racial profiling, the spokesman said, "We don't work like that in Sweden." Who do you believe?

Kristen Bell is amazing because she got back into character as Frozen's Princess Anna to send a very special message to a young girl with cancer this week.

Kristen Bell just happens to know a friend of the family and did something special for Avery. She left her her audio message as Princess Anna! So cool!
Scientists came to the rescue in a MacGyver sort of way last week to save a nine-year-old killer whale found stranded on some rocks on the coast of British Columbia.
They think the orca got caught at low tide chasing a seal, and was unable to get back into the water.
According to The Daily Mail:
"The group designed what it called a 'MacGyver type water pump' to keep the animal from drowning, and ultimately were able to keep the nine-year-old mammal alive until high tide freed her that evening."
Pretty amazing stuff. Here's the video of the whale swimming free...
(1) Gwyneth Paltrow runs a website called goop.com. It was "launched" from her kitchen in 2008.
According to the website, "goop has become a place for GP to introduce some of the incredible experts who have mentored her throughout her life to a wider audience, and a place where readers can find suggestions about where to shop, eat, and stay from a trusted friend—not from an anonymous, crowd-sourced recommendation engine."
(2) Gwyneth and goop recommend that women pee in the shower for their inner health. This from the woman who consciously uncoupled late last year.
Directly from the site, so you know I'm not making it up: "Try peeing in the shower squatting down. When you squat to pee as opposed to sitting up straight on the toilet, you automatically engage your pelvic floor and it naturally stretches and tones. Because your urethra is pointed straight down in this position all you have to do is relax for urine to flow out easily—as opposed to sitting up straight and having to strain to empty your bladder."
So what do you think, ladies? Can you do it? Will you do it?
