  • Bobbi Kristina Brown Update: She Was ‘Deathly Afraid’ Of Bathtubs, Friend Says

    Bobbi Kristina Brown remained unconscious Friday in a hospital after she was discovered in a bathtub three months ago -- and the circumstances around her getting there have become increasingly murky. Authorities say they consider it an accident, and while no foul play is suspected, Brown's friend Debra Reis Brooks had something shocking to add to the dialogue: Brown was “deathly afraid” of bathtubs and it was strange for her to randomly take a bath. After Brown’s mother, pop legend Whitney Houston, accidentally drowned in a bathtub in February 2012 at the Beverly Hilton hotel, Brown was petrified of baths, Brooks told Radar Online in an exclusive interview Friday.

  • Vladimir Putin's Alleged Girlfriend Alina Kabaeva Pregnant? Ex-Gymnast's Dress, Appearance At Event Spark Rumors

    Alina Kabaeva, a former gymnast and alleged girlfriend of Russian President Vladimir Putin, sparked renewed pregnancy rumors in domestic and social media outlets this week when she wore a “billowy” dress to a youth gymnastic event, a report said Thursday. The Kremlin has repeatedly denied persistent speculation that Putin and Kabaeva are in a relationship, as well as rumors the pair have children together. “Comments on Russian social media point out that 32-year-old Alina Kabaeva, the former champion gymnast-turned-politician, appears to have gained a few pounds,” CNN reporter Matthew Chance said. Shortly after the youth gymnastic event, which was attended by Russian veterans of World War II, local media outlets suggested Kabaeva looked “tired,” “overweight” and “older,” the New York Post reported.

  • Arkansas judge orders destruction of reality TV star's police record after misconduct report

    Arkansas police have destroyed a record outlining a nearly decade-old investigation into reality TV star Josh Duggar, a spokesman said Friday, a day after the 27-year-old resigned his role with a prominent conservative Christian group amid reports about sexual misconduct allegations from when he was a juvenile. The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, which obtained the offence report before its destruction, reports Duggar was accused of fondling five girls in 2002 and 2003. Duggar issued an apology Thursday on Facebook for unspecified bad behaviour as a youth and resigned his role as executive director for FRC Action, the tax-exempt legislative action arm of the Washington-based Family Research Council.

  • Why was Eugene Melnyk, a foreign resident, eligible for surgery in Ontario?

    Neither the Ottawa Senators nor hospital officials where he was treated will say why team owner Eugene Melnyk qualified to receive a liver transplant at a hospital in Toronto given that he is a permanent resident of Barbados. Eligibility rules under the Ontario Health Insurance Program require patients to make their primary residence in Ontario and spend at least 153 days — about five months — in any 12-month period to maintain their coverage under the provincial plan. The “snowbird” provision prevents patients from living out of the province and returning to Ontario only when they need health care.

  • Russia faces punishment for lack of respect to Canada

    By Dmitriy Rogovitskiy MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia will be sanctioned after their players showed a lack of respect to Canada following a 6-1 loss in the final of the world championships in Prague, the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) said on Monday. Most of Russia's players left the ice straight after Sunday's defeat and headed for the dressing rooms without waiting for the national anthem of Canada to be played, which goes against the etiquette of the sport. "Once we arrive back home after the world championships we will look into this question and we will get in touch with those in charge at the Russian Ice Hockey Federation," IIHF president Rene Fasel said in the statement to the TASS news agency.
