Wow! At least it made for a dramatic reunion episode of RHOA!
Shortly after turning herself in, Porsha was released on a $2K bond.

Considering the University of Oregon's mascot is a duck, we'd think the state would be pretty opposed to the use of foie gras!
But we thought wrong! SOOOOO wrong!!
In fact, a Portland restaurant loves the controversial ingredient so much, they decided to make a drink based on it! Meet the "Foie the Hell of It," a cocktail containing apple brandy, bourbon, lemon juice, strawberry rhubarb puree, egg white, and lemon bitters. Oh, and of course it's topped off with foie gras garnish!!
The diabolical drink is the brain child of bartender Bryan Tamayo who works at Ox in Oregon, and according to him it's actually quite tasty! And he's not alone either, as the cocktail is so popular the restaurant is planning on adding it to their permanent menu!
Adding meat to a drink is already bizarre enough on it's own, but when you throw in the fact that foie gras is made by force-feeding ducks and geese just takes it to a whole different level of ICK!
No thank you!

NeNe Leakes has admitted in her autobiography, Never Make the Same Mistake Twice, she was arrested when she was in her early 20s with a friend, but could the reality star be hiding something more?
Maybe the fact that she was a convicted felon?!
It's hard to imagine the Real Housewife behind bars, but according to the Athens-Clarke County Superior Court in Georgia, it really happened.
In documents provided by the superior court, NeNe was arrested in 1992 and was charged with three felonies and a misdemeanor count due to "theft of services" from a phone company.
She was 25 at the time and went by her birth name, Linnethia Johnson.
Within the two-year time span, the star was arrested a total of three times due to probation violations! That's not too far away from Marlo Hampton's legendary SEVEN arrests all the ladies are so chatty about!
Good thing NeNe turned her life around and is now a successful reality star!
Who says you don't learn from your own mistakes?

Here it is!
Selena Gomez got served with some legal documents yesterday on her way out of a convenience store.
If we're correct, we can only imagine this is not going end well for Bieby.
Selena was apparently trying to convince JB to back off when he allegedly ordered his bodyguard to attack a paparazzi in May 2012 in Miami.
That's going to be no fun at all, but at least she was looking gorgeous when she was snapped??! HA!

A 17-year-old, Liam Andrews, was a perfectly healthy and normal teenager living in a town called Stockton-on-Tees in England when something horrific happened to him.
His grieving mother still is not sure what happened that day, but instead could only reveal what she saw with details that are very hard to hear.
Here's what his mom, Suzanne, said:
"Liam came downstairs in the morning complaining of a headache and saying he had just sneezed six times in a row. I thought it was nothing serious at first and I told him I would get him some paracetamol but then he got poorly very quickly. Initially he was saying 'my head hurts, my head hurts, then he started being sick. His eyes were going back and forward and he was rolling around in pain. He couldn’t work his hands. I gave him a glass of water but he threw it over himself as he was so hot. He was so hot I couldn’t touch him, then he started to fit. I was extremely worried, I rang an ambulance and they were here within minutes."
Liam was taken to a hospital and then taken to another one - James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough - where he underwent surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain. He spent four days in critical condition until he passed away last June. His mother, understandably so, was totally shocked. She said:
"I was shocked and devastated when he passed away. I never would have imagined that something as simple as a few sneezes could kill a healthy young boy. I couldn’t believe it, there was nothing to indicate that something like this would happen. I asked for a specialized post-mortem and it came back that he was absolutely fine. It is usually more common for this kind of thing to happen in people over the age of 40, not in someone so young and fit. I don’t think there was anything anybody could have done to save Liam. It could have happened at any time or any day. I am just thankful that I was there to try and help and he wasn’t by himself."
His death wasn't in vain. Since his passing, his organs were donated, and used to save the lives of six people.
Suzanne, who has five other children, is still devastated by her son's death, but is thankful for the time she was able to spend with him. She said:
"Liam was very sensitive and loving, he was a real character. I could have mature conversations with him but he was still young and liked to get himself into mischief. I would never have swapped him for the world."
We can't imagine what this family has gone through. To lose a loved one at such an early age, and in such a freak manner is gut-wrenching to hear about - let alone to experience for oneself.
Our condolences to this brave and obviously very loving family.

Now there’s a college course being offered about Puff Daddy!!!
Kids at NYU will start studying today in a new class called 'Sean Combs & Urban Culture'! So for all of you who want to be ballers or shot-callers, this might be your chance!
The course will showcase the influence Puffy has had on black and urban culture ever since exploding onto the scene in the '90s!
"No single personality dominated the landscape of urban mainstream popular culture in the 1990s (and since) more than producer, rapper and entrepreneur Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs. By 2013, hip-hop and black culture have become globally mainstream; the immense popularity that hip-hop enjoys today is directly rooted in the profound cultural changes that Combs and his peers instigated. Combs emerged from his humble professional beginnings in the early 1990s as an A&R man at Andre Harrell’s Uptown Records to fashion himself as a profoundly versatile and wildly successful performer, actor, reality-TV star, producer, songwriter, fashion and restaurant entrepreneur and philanthropist. His current net worth estimated at $550 million makes him the richest man in hip-hop and one of the wealthiest artists in the history of popular music. He is a multiple Grammy-winner and won an Oscar in 2012 for his work as a film producer.
Though sometimes not treated with seriousness he deserves, Combs has had a profound effect on global culture of the last twenty years. Through the success of his Bad Boy Records label, which distributed genre-defining artists like the Notorious B.I.G., Combs helped forever alter and change the sound and visuals of hip hop and R&B. Combs drew on Russell early business success to redefine the image of the hip-hop entrepreneur as aggressive, brash and full of self-assured swagger. He also helped redefine the concept of celebrity branded entertainment and he mainstreamed innovative marketing techniques (like street teams) in the music industry.
This class will investigate the social and cultural and political changes of the 1990s and how Sean Combs was catapulted to success by those changes. Through critical readings, viewings and listening assignments, the brilliance, tragedy, strategy and serial entrepreneurship of Sean Combs will be interpreted, discussed and dissected.”
Although we’re a little surprised that this only a 2-credit course!
You know what they say though - mo credits, mo problems!
Study hard, kids!

Quirky chic! That’s totally a thing, right??
And judging by the Chanel swimsuit she’s got on, we’re guessing it’s one of the summer issues! Kind of a dead giveaway. Ha!
Except we don’t normally see swimwear styled with cardigans and fuchsia socks!
The 23-year-old also rocked the famous double C’s with a luxe, tan backpack, which was the most toned down piece of this entire look!
Can’t wait to see what the final shots have in store — bet it won’t be lacking color.
