Ah, there's no place like home for a fun family reunion — and for George Clooney, that's in Augusta, Kentucky!

While the handsome 54-year-old was in town for some family matters, he found time to take Amal Clooney out on a nice little date around his hometown on Wednesday!

The duo stopped by one of Georgie's favorite places in town: Magee's Bakery!

Co-owner Russell Dickson dished about the loving newlyweds and said:

"They were fun as a couple! They ordered the transparent, that's his thing, he loves the transparent."

From what we understand, the transparent is the name of these little pie-like pastries the bakery is known for! How presh!

Russell went on to give the world a little history lesson, recalling:

"His family has been a customer for years, so I kind of half grew up with him always hanging around the bakery. He stops in maybe once a year or so."

The transparent pastries weren't the only thing the lovebirds munched on! They apparently also had some pudding from the popular local spot!

Later on, George took his wife out to dinner at Caproni's on the River! Sounds like a great end to a wonderful day!

Sigh, imagine being shown around George Clooney's hometown by George himself!

Raven-Symoné Doesn't Think Harriet Tubman Should Be On The $20 Bill Because She's Not Progressive Enough?!

no title

That's so Raven?!

Recently, a grassroots campaign called "Women On 20s" started a viral frenzy when they proposed that former president Andrew Jackson be taken off the $20 bill and replaced with African-American abolitionist Harriet Tubman — who during the 1800s used the Underground Railroad to rescue approximately seventy family and friends from slavery.

Well apparently Tubman's work just doesn't impress Raven-Symoné!

On Wednesday's episode of The View, the former child star revealed that she didn't like the idea of putting the historical legend on such currency!

She said:

"No offense to everyone that's going to be mad at me for saying this, I don't like that idea… I think we need to move a little bit more forward. Let me just preface that I understand the history, I get it, trust me, I was taught, I was in that culture… I would've chosen Rosa Parks."

As to why she would've chosen Parks over Harriet Tubman, the 29-year-old believes the former is more progressive and more in-line with our current political landscape:

at least 12 dead paris shooting charlie hebdo

This is absolutely horrible and completely heartbreaking.

Today in Paris, France there was a devastating shooting at the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo that has left at least 12 dead.

The attack, now being labeled a 'terrorist operation' by President François Hollande, is France's deadliest terror attack in twenty years.

Among those dead are two French policeman and famed French cartoonists, known by their pen names: Cabu, Tignous, Wolinski, and Charb (who is also the magazine's publisher).

The Associated Press is reporting that there were THREE gunmen who carried out the attack after a press conference with French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, not two as previously thought, and that they're all still on the loose. They also were supposedly shouting "Allahu akbar" while shooting.

Reporters at the scene of the crime quotes a policeman who said:

Taylor Swift's Blank Space Snags The Top Of The Billboard Hot 100 & Makes History By Doing So!

taylor swift blank space top 100 song ties record women awsome

HELL YEAH! Taylor Swift is a history-making powerhouse!

The Shake It Off singer has just helped make HISTORY because of her song Blank Space!

This is the seventh week that her single has nabbed the top of the Billboard Hot 100!

[ Related: Taylor Swift Shows Off Her Season Of Gift-Giving! ]

But that's not record-worthy, what gives?

Well, by having Taylor hold the #1 spot, it means that for 19 straight weeks, women have blocked men from getting the top spot for the first time since 2005!

How freakin' amazing is that??

It's not the longest women have EVER led the top spot, with that record being 45 straight weeks, but that included featured roles on songs by male artists.

[ Related: Taylor Swift Performs On Rockin' New Years Eve! ]

This record is been women-only songs for the last 19 weeks! SO badass!

Let's hope Blank Space can hold the spot for another week so she can BREAK the record instead of tying it!
