RHOM Alum Lisa Hochstein Claps Back At Those Who Criticized Her For Evacuating Hurricane Irma On A Private Plane

Over the weekend, Lisa Hochstein was put on blast for seemingly boasting about escaping Hurricane Irma's destruction via a private plane. Specifically, the former Bravolebrity took to Instagram to share a snap of her family and pets posing in front of a private aircraft amid statewide evacuations. Related: RHOBH's Dorit Kemsley Says Husband Will Take A "Back Seat" Unsurprisingly, many IG users dragged Miz Hochstein for bragging about her good fortune. Even Lisa's RHOM costar Joanna Krupa weighed in on the controversy as she noted on Twitter: All those A holes posting and showing off w their private jets in Miami , why don't u offer help families and animals that can't get out ? — Joanna Krupa (@joannakrupa) September 7, 2017 Otherwise stop posting and showing off when people and animals are being left behind during this catastrophic hurricane. Idiots ! — Joanna Krupa (@joannakrupa) September 7, 2017 We mean, Miz Krupa isn't wrong. Nonetheless, Lisa has since defended her decision as she's updated her pic's caption with the following: UPDATE: to all of these ignorant people leaving nasty comments... although it's none of your damn business we were not the only ones in this plane. Every seat was occupied and my son had to sit in my lap. EVERYONE IS POSTING ON SM about how they escaped! This happens to be mine and I don't need to apologize or hide to ANYONE ABOUT HOW WE DO SO. We also did not have paper work for our dogs to fly commercial as every vet was closed and every flight was booked and there is no way in hell we would leave them behind. Fortunately we were able to get a plane to take them with us. Anyone with nasty comments needs to back off get off my page and worry about yourself and how you can help instead if wasting your energy on attacking me. And to the other commenters about me "abandoning" my friends in my house 🙄🙄🙄🙄 they weren't any guests that happened to just be there already, they are friends who just didn't have a proper safe place to stay who live in Miami and I figured mine would be safer for them so I offered for them to come on over! So take your comments and shove them up your 🍑🍑🍑 🙅🏼🙅🏼🙅🏼🙅🏼🙅🏼🙅🏼🙅🏼 THANK YOU to all of my family and friends who have reached out to help, offer a place to stay, offer help to get out of Miami or just checked on us! And I'm sorry if I haven't gotten back to all of you! But I will🙏🏼🙏🏼We weren't originally going to leave partly because of the dogs and a few other things....and waited until the last minute when we realized that this thing wasn't slowing down which definitely made it difficult to get out. I'm praying for everyone who already has been devastated by this hurricane and pray that Somehow by a miracle Florida is not hit so hard. We did not want to risk it with our little angel Logan. And YES we let some friends stay at our home because it's a little safer then theirs! They will be fine!!! Material things can be replaced lives cannot 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 #staysafeA post shared by Lisa Hochstein 🌎 Lisa's World (@lisahochstein) on Sep 8, 2017 at 10:06pm PDT In Lisa's initial post, she stated that she and her family had "waited until the last minute" to evacuate, but ultimately chose to leave in order to protect her son, Logan. Fair enough. At the end of the day, we're just glad Lisa and her family are safe -- even if her method of evacuating Florida is questionable. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Gambling and Some Interesting Celebrity Breaks

Gambling is something which is considered a luxury sport. It is a pastime and an occasion for many people to network and grow. Many people have had great fortune through gambling and have become celebrities from rags. However, there have been many other stories which have made rags out of celebrities, too. It’s interesting to know how addicted our role models could be to gamble that they end up earning for gambling, sacrifice, family/relationships for gambling and what-not. So, let’s not waste time and talk about some interesting celebrity stories, which you might not have known. 1. Tiger Woods Well who does not like Tiger Woods and when did Tiger need introductions anyway? But the habit of gambling by Tiger might be unexplored. As per our sources, Tiger was introduced to gambling by Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley. Gambling became an addiction soon when he started hanging out with Michael and Charles a little too much. It is rumored that Tiger has a whopping $1 million limit in most reputable casinos in Vegas. Well, now you know where Tiger’s whopping brand endorsements and high golf contract prices are ending up. Also, Tiger does not believe in playing for smaller amounts and usually takes part in high stakes games of at least $25,000. Tiger highly appreciated his kind of table set up in casinos. The Mansion at MGM Grand Las Vegas is his favorite gambling destination. He has always loved a table for himself that was surrounded by party girls. Gambling and tables surrounded by party girls were one of the prime reasons that cost Tiger a divorce from his wife. Considering the expense of divorce which cost about $750 million and a relationship, gambling was a costly choice made by the famous golfer. 2. Michael Phelps Michael Phelps is one of the greatest swimmers the world has ever known. He is a famous Olympian who has won 28 Olympic medals for his country and has brought so much glory to his country and himself. This is the highest number of Olympic medals any individual has won, which is what has brought the swimmer a peaceful retirement life in his early thirties. He is retired now and is just 32 years of age but has achieved remarkable heights which certainly will define him for a lifetime. But, one lesser known fact or habit of Michael was gambling. He had a habit of not accepting defeat and a ‘try until you win’ attitude, which earned him a lot of success at Olympics. However, this isn’t the case with gambling. If you lose, you continue to lose heavily, and it is all about luck and fortune as the results are not directly proportional to the attempts or efforts. It took loads of time for Michael to understand this and sources say that he was into gambling so much that it sometimes happened for eight straight hours. This problem persisted with Michael during 2012. He was also caught for drinking and driving near a casino in Maryland, where he was probably stressed after a straight eight hours of continuous gambling. His life had become very stressed as he wasn’t used to losing and was desperate to win no matter what it had cost. This kept pushing him to despair. Somehow with the help of his friends and close ones, he came out of the gambling habit and now is leaving a peaceful and comfortable life. 3. Tobey Maguire Tobey the on-screen Spider-Man is as cool and smart in the real life as he is in his movies. He took some tips from a poker player Daniel Negreanu and turned out to make a fortune of $10 million. As per his close friends, tips from Daniel who is a professional poker player helped him make over $10 million. He also participated in a World Series of Poker tournament, which was the time when he encountered Daniel who probably changed his fortune. But, Tobey’s gambling habits got him to a legal hurdle. He, with some of the other influential celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck, were found to be participating in underground poker games, which are considered illegal due to the unaccounted money at stake. In the year, 2011 Tobey faced a lawsuit for organizing an illegal ring of underground poker. He didn’t take a financial loss due to gambling but a lawsuit against the Spider-Man certainly harmed his popularity. But, compared to other celebrities on the list, Tobey certainly gained a lot more than he lost due to gambling! 4. Allen Iverson Allen Iverson is a very famous professional basketball champion. The basketball player has retired now but played 14 seasons in NBA tournaments. Gambling had brought him loads of trouble for which Allen who was nicknamed as ‘The Answer’ had no answers. His case was probably the reverse of Tobey. Allen managed to lose over $200 million through gambling. Yes, you read it right — $200 million — only through gambling. This famous basketball player had received several heights in his career and received contracts of a lifetime from Reebok. However, due to gambling, he had lost a great deal of his money and was in severe debt and literally had to beg his teammates to pay off such a debt. Also, during the end of his career, he lost the lifetime contract from Reebok as his gambling debts and other negative news reports started surfacing. Allen’s wife filed for divorce and a statement by Allen read that he does not even have money to buy a cheeseburger and hence, he cannot afford any alimony. Casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit had banned Allen due to his inability to pay off his debts. This is a true story of a hero to zero only because of gambling! 5. Ben Affleck We had Ben Affleck’s name popping up with Spider-Man Tobey. The ‘Batman’ actor who will be seen in more ‘Justice League’ movies has had his share of gambling issues. His gambling venture... Gambling is something which is considered a luxury sport. It is a pastime and an occasion for many people to network and grow.

Casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit had banned Allen due to his inability to pay off his debts. This is a true story of a hero to zero only because of gambling! 5. Ben Affleck We had Ben Affleck’s name popping up with Spider-Man Tobey. The ‘Batman’ actor who will be seen in more ‘Justice League’ movies has had his share of gambling issues. His gambling venture wasn’t so beneficial as the super hit 2013 movie ‘Runner, Runner’ and is rumored to have been to a rehab center to come outside or quit the habit of gambling. His interest towards gambling is natural as he won the CA State Poker Championship in 2004. He is also fond of the game blackjack. We are not sure of the financials, but Ben was exposed to quite some mental pressure due to gambling. 6. Ray Romano Ray is an actor, stand-up comedian, and is known for the popular TV show, ‘Everybody Loves Raymond.’ He has also received an Emmy award for his role in the hit TV show. He has given his voice for Manny in the ‘Ice Age’ movies. The 60-year-old actor was one of the first actors who began receiving huge paychecks for TV shows. In 2009, he went on to produce a show called ‘Men of a Certain Age.’ The show had a character named ‘Joe’ who was a gambling addict and he tried his best to stay away from it as much as possible. It was a surprise to note that the character of Joe was based on Ray himself, which was something the actor later admitted. Ray still participates in several poker events, but he now knows about his limited skill sets and hopefully is only doing so for fun or as a leisure activity. He isn’t going to casinos now and prefers online poker and similar gambling in smaller amounts. As revealed in the TV series based on Ray himself, he used to seek help from different people anonymously when the gambling debt took over his financial peace. 7. Joe Francis Joe Francis the ever so controversial film producer named for many controversies and publicities. The businessman had been accused by several actresses for casting couch and inappropriate behavior. He is best known for the ‘Girls Gone Wild’ series. Wynn Hotels and others have filed a legal suit against him for unpaid gambling debts. Allegedly or surprisingly, the debt of over $2 million Wynn was given a discount of about 30 percent. 8. John McCain John is a sort of political celebrity in the United States as a senior senator in the state of Arizona. At over 80 years of age, John was a Republican candidate in the 2008 elections against Barack Obama. However, from sources and close friends, it was learned that John had at a time in his life been very addicted to gambling. A stretch of eight hours of gambling and ten hours of poker all are in shame where John had stretched for over 14-16 hours on the table. The extent to which he was attached to gambling was worrying and it certainly affected his choices during his senior senator regime. 9. Charlie Sheen Charlie Sheen has given us many entrepreneurs or trading goals by his role in the very famous movie ‘Wall Street.’ With a bucket of hit films and tremendous fan following, Charlie is one of the most controversial actors that the industry has ever known. He has recently surfaced for non-payment of taxes. He owes over $5 million in taxes which is a huge problem, especially for such a celebrity. He is also known for various other controversies that include drugs, alcohol, women, etc. Now coming to his gambling updates, he is known to be a huge gambling addict as revealed by his former spouse during his divorce case. Charlie was in contact with a bookie even while transporting his wife to the hospital while she was pregnant before the birth of his daughter. Clearly, gambling had gained the highest priority in his life over the welcoming of his own daughter and this certainly weakened his personal family ties. Also, the report exposed that Charlie in his peak lost over $200,000 every week — all thanks to gambling. This surfaced in 2006 and about eight years later, Charlie told his fans and the media that he has overcome gambling and doesn’t do it anymore. But controversies still follow him with tax evasion and non-payment and we hope he loses all of his bad habits soon. 10. Charles Barkley Another basketball player who has lost huge in gambling is Charles Barkley. After retirement, Charlies is working as an analyst in the NBA tournament. The 55-year-old also had been struggling due to gambling. Charles confessed to having lost about $30 million because of his gambling addiction. He also took counseling and then a break for two years from gambling but is a very difficult addiction, he is back to gambling now. Now he admits to gambling in casinos but in a much more controlled, monitored, and restricted manner. You never know, you might have new news story surfacing about a new gambling debt from Charles, as gambling is a galloping enterprise and you are always playing with trouble. Let’s Learn from Celebrities and Let’s Go Gambling Big celebrities have been in huge gambling troubles and it is certainly worthy to learn from their experiences and be as distant as possible from gambling activities. We have seen many stories and there are very few people who have made a fortune from gambling. Most importantly, we must make sure it never becomes a habit and addiction. Addiction to any activity can be very harmful and these celebrities have already experienced these issues. If people at such heights are not spared by a gambling addiction, it is very difficult for us to remain sheltered. So, to end the celebrity gambling league, gambling occasionally isn’t bad, but making it a source of income, or a habit or addiction should be avoided. [Photo Credit: Pixabay].....»»

The 45-year-old entertainer shared his concern with Ellen about Puerto Rico’s current state of despair and pleads with viewers to donate money to help the victims who are in need of food, water, and medicine among many other necessities. “Ladies and Gentlemen, I am from Puerto Rico and right now, Puerto Rico is suffering. We were destroyed by a hurricane and it has been very difficult,” Ricky expressed to Ellen‘s audience. “Right now, there is no water, there is no electricity, there is no food, there is no medicine, there is no diesel for the generators that will make the hospital work.

Black University Of Florida Students Wrestled Off Graduation Stage

As someone who graduated from one of the University of Florida's rival horrible barely-accredited Southern state schools, I always love a good UF story. And thankfully there are plenty. In order to graduate from UF all you need to do is guess the number of beans in a jar correctly, and last night the proud future jobless Florida bath salt addicts took to the graduation stage to celebrate their mediocrity. The post Black University Of Florida Students Wrestled Off Graduation Stage appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. UF Twitter Somebody please find out this employee’s name!! Every time a Black student took more than TWO seconds, he aggressively pushed them. Watch it for yourself. #ItsGreatUF pic.twitter.com/zMee1nMbUZ — Chris (@ChicoFreedom) May 5, 2018   As someone who graduated from one of the University of Florida’s rival horrible barely-accredited Southern state schools, I always love a good UF story. And thankfully there are plenty. In order to graduate from UF all you need to do is guess the number of beans in a jar correctly, and last night the proud future jobless Florida bath salt addicts took to the graduation stage to celebrate their mediocrity. But things went South when a white faculty member wrestled some of the students off stage – mainly black students participating in a slow-motion celebratory dance associated with their fraternity. To be fair, this is the University of Florida, so they might have just been slow, period. According to one student the stroll is: …a cultural tradition in historically black fraternities and sororities.   Almost fell when he pushed me pic.twitter.com/98meStYalY — thugger (@mythuggin) May 5, 2018   One of the ushers monitoring the ceremony didn’t get the memo that this will be the last thing most students do before getting eaten by alligators, and, bless his heart, wanted to get through the ceremony because he apparently assumed anyone there had someplace more important to be. Lol. I remember insufferable douche frat daddies of all ethnicities strutting across the graduation stage at my school, but it’s more of a race thing with the stroll being associated with a specific black frat, and you can’t really argue with the video footage circulating of the faculty’s smackdown. Optics are everything, and it’s bold, if nothing else, that – after witnessing the dozens of race-related infractions to go viral over the past decade – someone would physically drag students of color off stage. It’s like how Julianne Hough still wears blackface all the time. Take a hint Julianne. Even if the faculty was manhandling young men of all creeds and colors, um, Molesty McGayface much? Spacey is reeling over his career path. Anyway the faculty member has been suspended and the school has released a billion apologies in multiple forms, so UF can continue to churn out unqualified inbred nobodies for years to come.   The University is proud of the achievements of every single one of our graduates and regrets that any celebration of the day may have been diminished by those monitoring a graduation ceremony. — FLORIDA (@UF) May 6, 2018 The post Black University Of Florida Students Wrestled Off Graduation Stage appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»
