So when he boarded a Megabus to go from Chicago to Milwaukee on Sunday — not even a hundred mile drive — it should have been no problem, right?! Just another trip?!

Well, things started off badly (below):

And then… they got so much worse.

Let's let Peterson tell the crazy tale (below):

This is so sad.

George Gaynes, who was most famously known for his roles in Police Academy, Punky Brewster, and Tootsie, reportedly passed away on Monday at the age of 98.

On Tuesday, the actor's daughter, Iya Gaynes Falcone Brown, confirmed the loss of her father to the New York Times.

While George appeared in several TV shows, he also starred in all seven of the Police Academy movies and has 35 film credits to his name!

However, some people might remember him for his role as Henry Warnimont on Punky Brewster. The elderly actor played a building manager who adopts an abandoned girl played by Soleil Moon Frye and becomes her foster parent.

Upon hearing the news, Soleil took to Twitter to share a heartfelt message saying:

The Jinx's Robert Durst Pleads Guilty And Is Heading To Prison For 7 Years — But Not For Murder!

Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!

no title

This is an interesting development.

Robert Durst has been a suspect in several murders, and he finally admitted guilt in a New Orleans federal court on Wednesday — but not for any of the killings.

The New York real estate heir finally plead guilty to those gun charges for illegally possessing a .38-caliber revolver.

Last year, the subject of the HBO docu-series The Jinx was arrested by the FBI, who feared that Durst was about to flee the country.

During his arrest at the J.W. Marriott Hotel, where he had registered under an alias name, officials discovered a handgun. Since the 72-year-old was a convicted felon at the time, it was illegal for him to possess a firearm.

Under a plea bargain arrangement, Durst will be sentenced to 85 months in federal prison, and will eventually be transferred to prison in El Lay by August 18 — where he will face murder charges.

Last year, the millionaire was arrested for the execution-style shooting of his college friend Susan Berman – an act in which authorities think was to keep her from talking to investigators about the disappearance of his first wife Kathleen McCormack in 1982.

Durst has gotten off for murder before with the help of the best defense lawyers in the country — he was never even charged in the disappearance of his first wife!

He was also acquitted of murder charges in 2003, despite admitting that he cut up his neighbor Morris Black and threw the parts into Galveston Bay. Allegedly, the death was an accident after the two men fought over a gun.

But now, it looks like Durst's luck is finally running out…

Adele's Own Songs Make Her Cry! Not Even The Singer Is Immune To Her Emotional Music!

Filed under: Music MinuteAdele

This proves NO human can listen to Hello without tearing up!

Stars, they're just like us!

We all pretty much broke down sobbing when we first heard Hello, partially because we were so happy our queen was back but mostly because it was so DANG emotional!

Seriously, Adele's music hits home with EVERYONE, especially her!

Related: Will Adele Make Her Big Screen Debut?

In an interview published on Thursday, the British beauty told the New York Times that even she tears up listening to her sentimental songs!

In fact, the 27-year-old explained that's how she knows the track is a good one! She said:

"In order for me to feel confident with one of my songs it has to really move me. That's how I know that I've written a good song for myself—it's when I start crying. It's when I just break out in [expletive] tears in the vocal booth or in the studio, and I'll need a moment to myself."

Wow! We're thinking that Adele must've been bawling over her new single, considering the song is such a smashing success already! LOL!

But on a serious note, the hitmaker was actually nervous to record another album after 21, because she was concerned it wouldn't be good enough. She explained:

This is surprisingly calculated.

After Vice President Joe Biden's son Beau died from brain cancer in May, news leaked that the younger man's dying wish had been to see his father run for President in 2016.

Now, according to a report, it appears that VP Biden himself is the one who "leaked" the information that his son had asked him to run for president!

POLITICO reports that Biden himself called Maureen Dowd, columnist for the New York Times, to run the story about how Beau had, on his deathbed, made his father make a promise he'd run for president, with Beau's reasoning being:
