One Hotel In New York Is So Much Better Than You That It'll Charge You $500 For Thinking Otherwise

union street guest house 500 fee

This is some genius-level marketing.

The once unheard of Union Street Guest House in Hudson, New York, is going viral.

That's because it's so much classier than you, that if you say anything negative about your stay there on Yelp, it'll practically rob you.

Seriously.

The vintage hotel in the historic New York town aims to get wedding parties to stay in its rooms. However, due to the old-timey feel, the hotel found that many visitors were unimpressed with the less-than-modern features.

The solution? If any guest at your wedding writes a negative review on the web, the hotel will take $500 from your initial deposit.

But don't worry. The Union is good people. You can get that money back if you convince your friends/family to remove the bad press. Simple as that!

The Union Street Guest House justified its clever marketing tactics by saying:

CNN Correspondent Drunkenly Bites Medics Outside Of The Embassy In Baghdad! What?!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueEtc.PolitikEmmysAlcohol

arwa damon bites medics baghdad drunk

Well, the most trusted name in news might have just lost a little bit of credibility.

That's because CNN is making its own headlines today after reports that senior correspondent Arwa Damon drunkenly bit two medics at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.

That's so crazy!

The two victims, Charles Simons and Tracy Lamar, claim that in addition to suffering bites, they were also scratched and bruised, and are now suing Arwa and CNN for $1 million.

Arwa is an Emmy-award winning journalist who up until recently was most known for her reports in war-torn countries. Well, now she's definitely going to be known for something else.

The news station has remained tight-lipped about rumors that they continued to employ Arwa despite a history of drunken outbursts and violence. In fact, a spokesperson denied even knowing about the claims.

Here's hoping she just doesn't go full zombie now that she's had the taste of human flesh.

Selena Gomez Hits Another Car At A 7-11 - Check Out The Damage & The Totally Hollywood Way She Resolved It HERE!

selena gomez fender bender

Nooooo!!!

Not the BMW!

Okay. We'll calm down.

It looks like Selena Gomez got into a small fender bender yesterday whilst chilling in El Lay.

As she was pulling out of a 7-11 parking spot, the 22-year-old accidentally reversed into another car.

Not wanting to get out of the car, Selena's friend and passenger Francia Raisa, of Secret Life of the American Teenager fame, retrieved the insurance info from the other car.

Selena tweeted after the minor accident that she was flustered by the swarming paparazzi, but we wouldn't be surprised if all of this Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom drama was on her mind!

Selena's ride took damage on the back bumper, but she fixed things over with the owners of the other car by offering them

Justin Bieber & Candy Spelling Might Become The Most Random Neighbors Ever!

Justin Bieber might move into Candy Spelling's building.

It looks like Justin Bieber might be moving past his fight with Orlando Bloom by focusing his attention on finding a new place to live.

Since Justin's been having a bit of a problem with keeping things calm at his Beverly Hills condo, he's been looking for new places in Los Angeles to call home.

According to TMZ, Justin has narrowed down his search to either his own house or The Century building; AKA the exact same place where Candy Spelling lives!

HA! That would be a fantastic pairing.

Candy's not exactly new to celebrity antics thanks to her daughter Tori Spelling and her love life, so she'd make the perfect Bieber-neighbor.

Obviously, the smart choice for Justin would be to move into his own home so that he'd have less people to piss off.

So… we're placing our money on him moving into the complex.

Paramount Released A Distasteful Poster For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! See Why They're Now Apologizing Profusely To Fans!

TMNT Poster

Well then.

It seems like Paramount Pictures has gotten itself into a little bit of controversy.

Two days ago, Paramount Australia went to its Twitter to show off its new promotional poster for the Australian release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

That all sounds well and good, except for the fact that the poster shows Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello jumping off of a skyscraper that has just exploded. And right beneath them is the date the movie is coming out… September 11th.

Yep. Somehow a poster depicting turtle-human hybrids falling from a burning building emblazoned with a rather large 'September 11' on it didn't strike anyone over at the company as offensive.

Malaysia Airlines Has Been Involved In Another Airborne Incident!

Filed under: Etc.Scary!News

giphy airport

Oh no!

After having one of its flights shot down earlier this month, and another lost at sea earlier this year, Malaysia Airlines has had another scary incident with one of its planes.

When flight MH136 was barreling down the runway at Adelaide Airport in Australia, air traffic control had to tell the pilots to abort the take off because another flight was on a collision course to hit it!

The other flight, a Tiger Airways plane, was at fault, but still, bracing for lift off only to have the plane slam on its brakes instead must be a pretty terrifying experience!

Meredith Vieira Has A Message For Ann Curry After Her Firing: "Sh*t Happens"

Filed under: TV NewsEtc.Katie Couric

meredith vieira covers hollywood reporter

Inneresting. Very inneresting.

Meredith Vieira looked fantastic in an all-salmon number as she covered the August issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

She has certainly earned it!

We mean, Meredith was behind an entire era at ABC and was one of the original ladies on The View!

While using the cover to promote her new talk show, The Meredith Vieira Show, she also touched upon her time at Today and what she told Matt Lauer when things weren't going so smoothly.

Meredith explained:

“I just told him I loved him and I was there for him. But I never sugarcoated what had happened. I thought it had not been handled smartly from the very beginning, because I don’t think they ever felt that was the right fit for Ann so they should never have put her in that position to begin with. And then the ending was so mishandled. But you know what, sh!t happens. People make mistakes. We all do.”

Wow.

That's much more candid than we expected from the journalist.

Anyway, according to reports, The Meredith Vieira Show has a budget of $35 million! But that's still a lot less than Katie Couric's $50 million, which clearly went nowhere.

We wish you the best of luck on your show!

You can catch Meredith's new daytime TV show when it premieres on Sept. 8th!
