Finally, some closure in the Tyler Clementi case.
The jury for the hate crime trial, which began on February 21, convicted roommate Dharun Ravi GUILTY of invasion of privacy AND on the most serious charge, bias intimidation.
Dharun's attorneys agreed that he acted in an immature manner, but stood by their client, stating:
Another day, another brawl for Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans.
Srsly, is there some weird bet on how many fights this girl can get into??
In case you missed last night's Teen Mom 2 (and whoa, was it a doozy), Jenelle gets into a crazy ass bedroom brawl with her roommate Tori. Srly, it gets cray cray!
Not only that, but then Jenelle's BF Kieffer Delp and Tori's BF Tylor start fighting with each other too.
Cuz that's the thing to do when you're in Jenelle's life apparently.
Finding out that Jenelle is involved in a brawl is nothing new to us, but the above footage is pretty shocking. Drumsticks even get involved!! WTF?!
This is one confusing story.
A man saw a mouse, so he got a gun and shot at it, missed, hit his roommate in the chest through a wall, then the cops came and found out his other roommate was having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl hiding in a basement closet.
Disgusting and confusing.
There are some weird people out there.
Andy Rooney's College Roommate Goes Into Cardiac Arrest - AND Is Then Revived - While Attending His Memorial!
The friends and loved ones of the 60 Minutes reporter suffered another tragedy today.
Andy Rooney's former roommate, Bob Ruthman, went into cardiac arrest while he was attending Rooney's memorial luncheon. Ruthman and Rooney both attended Colgate University in the 1940s, and have remained friends for over 60 years.
Parademics rushed to the Century Club in New York and found a wheelchair bound Ruthman in the bathroom. Although he was initially thought to have died, new reports reveal that he was revived, and is currently in intensive care at a New York Hospital.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to him, as well as his family, during this difficult time.

A FitPerez reader has a messy roommate and wrote life coach Dr. J for some helpful advice on confronting her, asking:
"My roommate doesn't clean up herself and besides it being gross, I'm embarrassed to invite friends over. I've tried giving her hints about cleaning up but so far nothing has changed. I really can't afford to move and I don't want to confront her and then have an awkward living situation. Any ideas?"
According to Dr. J:
Absolutely! It's clearly time to "clean up" the situation if it's affecting your social life at the place you call home. A direct, honest conversation is in order. Now is the time to pump-up the backbone and ask your roommate to pick up after herself. The alternative is to continue to allow things to pile-up until the volcano erupts, which I'm sure is not the path you want to take.
You have already demonstrated your good will by keeping the Peace in your place, but your silence is sabotaging your success here. Honesty does not have to mean confrontation. The dialogue does not need to put her on the defensive. Rather it should demonstrate that you are looking to join forces as allies, not enemies, in your environment. Do your best not to ditch the diplomacy and focus on embarking on environmental excellence. Hopefully your roommate will be receptive to your requests.
If this doesn't get through to her, it's clear she's a lost cause. That's where Plan B comes into play. Start saving money now so that you can afford to move out as quickly as possible. She'll finally get the message once the movers come knocking on your door.

We hardly see how this is relevant to the matter at hand, but whatevs!
As the case against 19-year-old Dharun Ravi, who is accused with crimes including bias intimidation for his role in the suicide of Tyler Clementi, continues, his lawyer, Steven Altman, is requesting that prosecutors hand over a hand-written note from the victim, as well as files from his computer, that could show his state of mind and help his roommate get off the hook!
Obviously, the prosecutors have argued that this information isn't relevant, and Judge Glenn Berman is now reviewing it in his chambers, with a ruling expected on Thursday.
Regardless of this poor kid's mental state, the fact of the matter is this young man still terrorized him by violating his privacy and airing it on the internet. He needs to be held accountable for these cruel and inappropriate actions.
May Tyler R.I.P.
