Somebody must be SERIOUSLY kicking herself for all those times she blanked out on her lines!

After only premiering a month ago on the Broadway stage, Katie Holmes' new play hasn't been as well-received as she probably would have hoped for her first foray back in the game since splitting from Tom Cruise this past summer!

And even though the actress was determined enough to fix the production problems by putting in extra rehearsal hours, it's apparently just not enough…as it was announced today that Dead Accounts will now be closing seven weeks ahead of its initial schedule on January 6th!

Producer Jeffrey Finn says in a statement:

Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

President Obama Inauguration Small Crowd

We’ll go!

But apparently we are the only ones who want to see President Barack Obama's inauguration for his second term on January 21st.

Say whaaat?!

The public has decided that this second term isn’t as important interesting as his first one and, well, it looks like they aren’t rushing to book trips to the D.C. area.

Only about 800,000 people are expected this time around.

Whoa! We thought no one was going!

Okay, okay…considering he had

McDonald's Sales Drop First Time In Almost A Decade!

Filed under: Business BlitzHealthFast Food

McDonald's has always been a fast food powerhouse! A titan of industry!

But their sales actually fell in October!

That's the first monthly drop in almost a decade!

Global sales at restaurants open at least a year fell 1.8% in October. The last time something like this happened was 2003.

The weakened economy, and more competition are to blame for the drop.

Though we feel it could be something else too…

Barack Obama Is STILL President Of The United States!

Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

America has spoken and Mitt Romney has been DE-NIED!

Barack Obama will remain in the Oval Office as President of the United States of America and we couldn't be happier.

Not only is the economy slowly creeping toward recovery, but his administration has made leaps and bounds for the LGBT community over the last four years, so we can't see what kind of equality is right around the corner.

With Ohio being awarded to the POTUS at around 11:15, Barack Obama will serve another term!

Congrats, Mr. President!

Bacon Shortage An Overstatement Though Prices May Rise

Filed under: FoodHealth

Okay, so we may have slightly overreacted when we said the world would run really low on bacon soon.

There really won't be a huge shortage with people lined up outside supermarkets just for a chance to get some bacon or anything like that.

Mitt Romney Attempts To Explain Himself After Insulting 47% Of Americans

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikBarack Obama

Mitt Romney wasn't expecting any cameras during a private fundraiser dinner in Boca Raton, Florida on May 17, so he was finally able to be honest with supporters about his views and ideas for the United States of America.

Unfortunately for the Republican Presidential candidate, there WAS a camera there and it captured footage of him insulting a little less than HALF of the population.

Not only did he generalize 47% of Americans voting for Barack Obama as a bunch of government freeloaders who don't pay income taxes because they have no motivation to succeed in life, but expressed fears of the Hispanic population ruining the nation if they support the current president!

He's been hitting the campaign trail to talk up his plans for reviving the economy and lowering unemployment rates, but has yet to give any pertinent details as to HOW he'll do so. Behind closed doors, however, Romney wasn't afraid to give an honest answer.

Even though he "can never predict what the markets will do," he states they "will be happy" if he gets elected and he'll boost the economy "without actually doing anything."

That sounds pretty easy! Why hasn't Obama considered this plan? Ha!

Since half of the country was a little put off by how he really feels about them, Romney tried to explain himself at a press conference last night (above). Before U watch that though, c-c-check out the remarks that are causing the backlash … AFTER THE JUMP!!!
