Violence is never the answer! Especially when you are arguing about frozen vegan pad thai with tofu!
Back in January, an opera singer SLAPPED a doctor during a catfight at a New York City Trader Joe's and has recently been found NOT GUILTY of assault!
The conflict began when Dr. Cathleen London, a family practitioner and Fox News medical contributor, noticed the husband of Marcella Caprario, a 37-year-old opera singer, verbally abusing her sons who were busy searching for food in the frozen food section.
Apparently, the two boys were blocking Mr. Caprario from reaching his precious noodles and he began barraging them with insults.
The protective mother stepped in to say something, while the man's even more protective wife swooped in as well. The rest…is all history.
Check out the video above to hear what both women had to say about the supermarket smackdown and the defense Mrs. Caprario's lawyer used to get her off the hook!
Do U think the judge made the right ruling or should Marcella Caprario be held responsible for her actions?
Check out the video… after the jump!
Do U smell what The Rock is cookin'?
Anyone tuning into WWE's Wrestlemania on Sunday April 3rd will, when Dwayne Johnson returns to host the wrestling entertainment event of the year.
The multi-platform superstar sat down for a recent interview where he discussed returning to his roots and what is ahead for him in the wrestling world.
Discussing his reasons for retuning to WWE, the iconic wrestler said:
"I’ve always had a love for live performance. And growing up in the wrestling business, I have a love for entertaining the fans in that way. It’s a very visceral, intense, emotional, entertaining outlet for me. To be able to perform in front of 75,000 people… It’s always inspired me."
Familiar emotions kicked back into high gear while announcing his return to Wrestlemania to fans on Monday Night Raw this past February, as he explained:
"When my music hit, going out…. It was f—ing incredible. That night was the greatest Raw moment I’ve ever experienced. And that’s saying a lot. I’ve had the privilege of working with a lot of icons in the WWE. The goosebumps never left my body during that monologue."
What are fans in store for on April 3rd?
"What you can expect is getting me at my best — microphone in hand, entertaining the audience, taking the 75,000 people on a great ride for four hours, interacting backstage and in the crowd. And on top of all that is the fact that I can take my boot and stick it straight up someone’s ass. And when I’m done with that, I will slap the lips clean off their face."
Sounds like the Rock is back, but is this a permanent thing? The wrestler revealed he's not giving up movies, but hinted he does have more in store for the WWE after his hosting duties at Wrestlemania, saying:
"I’m looking to do something big and special with Vince [McMahon] after Wrestlemania."
Get excited to know your role, jabronis, and get ready to watch the Rock lay the smackdown at Wrestlemania XXVII!

He may be waving his flag of coked-out, instability for the world to see, but he's clearly backing it up with some seriously high-powered lawyers!
Charlie Sheen has taken the first legal steps to reclaiming his currently in-limbo series, Two and a Half Men, as his lawyer, Marty Singer, has sent Warner Bros., CBS, and series creator Chuck Lorre one hell of a nasty legal letter, claiming that they've violated his clients rights and contract, and demanding that they compensate him for eight episodes worth of lost wages!
Here are some HIGHlights:
“This action is outrageous and in direct violation of our client’s legal rights, including under the contract between our client and Warner Bros. Television with regard to Two and a Half Men (“the Series”). Our client is entitled to be paid for eight additional episodes under his contract on the Series.”
“Furthermore, my client is clean and sober and has passed every drug test requested. In fact, he took passing tests this weekend. It is clear that you cancelled the series not because of my client’s condition but in retaliation for your show runner being criticized."
"He (Sheen) intends to hold Warner Bros. fully accountable for the compensation owed on his contract and to hold Warner Bros. and CBS fully accountable for all of the consequences of their actions.”
“We demand that you immediately confirm that our client will be paid for the eight additional episodes of the series under his contract. If you fail to do so, our client intends to exercise all of his legal rights and remedies against CBS, Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre."
"Although Mr. Lorre is allegedly upset about recent statements made by Mr. Sheen, our client simply responded to Mr. Lorre's ongoing campaign of harassing our client and making numerous derogatory and highly damaging statements about him."
“There is no justification for the Series to be shut down at this time. It is clear that this action is the result of interference by Chuck Lorre with our client’s contractual rights. It is most unfortunate that Warner Bros. and CBS have conspired with Mr. Lorre in his tortuous and outrageous conduct in permitting him to shut down the show, thereby damaging many individuals and companies, in addition to our client.”
“Now, after our client simply responded to Mr. Lorre’s unrelenting derogatory statements, Mr. Lorre retaliated by arranging to terminate production of the Series for the remainder of the season. The fact is that Mr. Lorre refused to perform under the contract, namely, to have the Series produced through April 8, 2011, long before Mr. Sheen made any statements about Mr. Lorre.”
“In addition, we want to again confirm that our client is ready, willing and able to perform his obligations with regard to next season’s production of the series. We trust that you intend to pay our client for 24 episodes for next season’s production of the Series and ask that you confirm your intentions now.”
Geesh. WE feel bitch-slapped when we read this, so we can't imagine how it is for the actual recipients!
Shiz is getting SUUUURIOUS!
Clearly, this whole debacle has just cemented in our minds all the more reason Sheen should not be working and allowed to run around as he pleases, as he's clearly not well, but this letter DOES raise concerns for us that he actually may have a case against Lorre and the CBS and Warner Bros. crew, and we all know he's not going to be letting this one go.
Ugh. Which means MOOOOOORE of all of this drama!
Someone just get his ass help so we don't have to deal with this crazy anymore. It's EXHAUSTING! LOLz!
Thoughts?? Team Charlie or Team Chuck??

She was NOT messing around!
In the relatively quick hearing, Revel told the wacktress that she was required to attend one alcohol education course a week, wear a SCRAM bracelet, refrain from drinking alcohol and undergo random drug testing!
LiLo's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, attempted to get girl out of having to wear the bracelet, citing that it would interfere with her upcoming imaginary movie role, but Revel - who must have quite the sense of humor - said that unless they wanted her to spout off the thirty minute list of reasons the SCRAM bracelet was needed, then they needed to shut up and take the conditions she had set!
LOLz! Sorry, bb, no one's taking your bull shiz excuses anymore!
Her next hearing is July 6th, but what do U think??
How long will it take before Lindsanity effs up and violates her probation??

It's no shocker that the general consensus for this season of American Idol is pretty negative, seeing as none of the contestants are particularly talented or interesting!
Season two contestant Kimberly Locke, whom we actually like and has been mildly successful post the reality competition, is the latest to give the current batch of booooooring singers a smackdown!
“I think that they’re going to have to go back to the raw talent. The other night, on the show, I think everybody except for two people, maybe, played the guitar. I don’t play an instrument. I love people who play instruments — I think it’s great — but American Idol is a singing competition and I think it distracts and it takes away. I think some of them are better musicians than they are singers — if you really want to know the truth about it. When I was on American Idol it was about raw talent; you had a microphone, a microphone stand, a spotlight, and a track. We didn’t even have a band on my season! So, I do think it’s still a great way to find talent. I think they just need to get back to the basics of singing. One of the things I didn’t like about Idol was the Ford commercials. It was like, ‘Come on.’ For a lack of a better word they would whore us out, we did all these commercials for free, they got to use our image and our names. But the thing that upset me the most about it is that it took up so much time in our day. We were already exhausted running around doing press, people pulling us in a thousand directions, now we’ve go to do Coke and Ford and all these different spots for the sponsors. Those things would take, like, an entire day. Some nights we wouldn’t get finished from doing just that until midnight. It’s like, ‘Really?’ And then they’re like, ‘Practice your song in your sleep.’ I was like, ‘Really? Come on.’ So, the Ford commercials were kind of annoying. And, we didn’t get a car. So, go figure.”
We do think that it takes a great deal of talent to play the guitar and sing, but we agree that everyone this year has an instrument in hand CONSTANTLY - probably to distract from their SHITEOUS singing!
And those Ford commercials are effing obnoxious!
What do U think?? Do U agree with Kimberly Locke??
