What is wrong with these sports stars??

NBA star Dwight Howard is under a criminal investigation for child abuse!

The Cobb County police in Georgia are investigating allegations that Howard beat his 6-year-old son Braylon with a belt buckle.

This all sounds incredibly similar to the Adrian Peterson case…

Though Dwight's is more confusing.

Everyone's shook now!

The governors of the states of New York and New Jersey have, along with the rest of the country, been pretty shaken up by the news that a doctor who took a night out in the town has a confirmed case of the Ebola virus.

We've previously reported about how Dr. Craig Spencer is being treated for the scary virus after he returned from Guinea where he volunteered to treat people sick with the virus.

Well, the rules are apparently about to change, and these two governors have ordered a mandatory quarantine for anyone who arrives in an airport who have had any contact with the virus in West Africa.

And that quarantine will last 21 days for anyone who has had contact with the virus — including medical personnel and just regular airline passengers.

Both NJ governor Chris Christie and NY governor Andrew Cuomo said they needed to make rules more strict than the advised guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Here's what governor Cuomo said

The Doctor Accused Of Taking A Selfie With Joan Rivers While She Was Under Anesthesia Comes Forward To Deny Those Ridiculous Claims

Filed under: Icky Icky PooJoan RiversMedicine

joan rivers doctor did not take selfie with her

Remember when everyone was up in arms when a reported staff member at Manhattan's Yorkville Endoscopy clinic claimed that Joan Rivers' personal doctor took a selfie with the comedienne while she was under anesthesia?

Well, Dr. Gwen Korovin, is saying she did no such thing at all!

Sources close to the doctor said the ENT Specialist made it very clear that the story CNN reported is completely false and that their source is just "making up lies."

Dr. Gwen also said she did not perform a biopsy on the late comedienne but did not say if she performed any other procedures on her.

Well, it sounds like we could believe her. Several of her own patients have come forward to say what a great doctor Dr. Gwen is.

With an "unblemished" track record, why would any doctor do something so deplorable as to take a selfie with an unconscious patient and tarnish their good name??
