What a get. *eye roll*
On Wednesday, it was announced that Michael Flatley (AKA the Lord Of The Dance creator) has been booked to dance at Drumpf's Liberty Ball. Yup, according to TMZ, the President-elect will ring in his presidency by watching Flatley and his Irish step dancing troupe break it down at Friday's bash.

Thurman, who is undergoing a custody trial against her financier ex-fiancé and father of her daughter, Arpad 'Arki' Busson, was the subject of many a salacious accusation by Busson's lawyers on Friday.
That included the biggie: they claim the film star used a dangerous cocktail of prescription drugs and alcohol to treat a mental illness.
Busson's lawyer, Peter Bronstein, led things off by asking a psychologist the following about the Pulp Fiction star's alleged habits:
