Angry Time Warner Cable customers are still angry today after demanding that TWC pay up for going down for an HOUR during the Super Bowl in Southern California!
Refund? HA. Time Warner Cable has never done anything that would actually COST them money. Instead, the company announced that all L.A.-area customers would automatically receive a gift of 'appreciation' following the blackout — a free

Drivers of southern California, BEWARE! Kylie Jenner is hitting the roads!!!
The young reality starlet recently turned 16, and she celebrated her landmark birthday the same way most 16-year-olds do. By taking her driving test!!
It looks like she passed with flying colors, as her proud older sis Kourtney Kardashian snapped a picture of her behind the wheel and wrote:
"Look out world! @kyliejenner is a licensed driver!"
We're not exactly sure how wise it is for Kourtney to be distracting her with an impromptu photo shoot, but Kylie managed to keep her eyes on the road like a pro!
We also gotta give her props for not hitting any pedestrians or small animals, which is pretty essential when it comes to getting behind the wheel!
Way to go, Kylie!

A group of men were out fishing off the coast of SoCal.
What could've been a normal, boring fishing trip, turned into possibly a record setting outing.
While filming for a new Outdoor Channel show called The Professionals, they hooked a Mako shark.
A GIANT Mako shark! They fought for two hours to reel in the 1,300-pound beast!!
That sure is gonna be some great footage for their show!
The shark's body has been donated to science to study so at least it will go to good use.
Check out the video (above) to see the giant beast these men somehow reeled in!

Whoo!! Woodstock, baby!!!
As you can see, Lindsay Lohan channeled her inner hippie for the Coachella music festival. Wouldn't John Lennon be proud?? LOLz!
We have to admit. Gurl looks good!! Looks like she's been taking care of herself a lil' more. Way to go, Linds!!
But glowing face or not, her presence at Coachella is under some major scrutiny! Everyone is whispering about Judge Stephanie Sautner's wishes for her not to go clubbing — which probably included any event where she could get wastey faced with the masses!
But Linds is

This gurl doesn't mess around when it comes to fitness!
Alison Sweeney, the host of Biggest Loser, hosted Prevention Magazine's "On The Run" event in San Diego on Saturday, which she also participated in to prepare for the upcoming L.A. Marathon.
Runners had the opportunity to race FOR FREE in the third annual event's 5K, 10K or half-marathon length course, while kids could take on the 1.5 mile "Mini Mermaid Run".
Alison completed the 10K race through the SoCal city's Mission Bay area with a personal best time, so we have no doubt she is going to kick butt in El Lay this March when she runs a full marathon!

In an effort to distract customers from their menu's heavy calorie count, McDonald's locations in Southern California are handing out a free bag of apple slices to costumed kids under 12.
California parents looking to get their kids a healthy snack on Halloween can take their young ones to McDonald’s in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday.
Michael Mangione Jr., president of the McDonald’s Operators’ Association of Southern California, explained the promotion aims to highlight the new-and-improved Happy Meal offerings, saying:
“We’re excited to offer this nutritious treat for children this Halloween season. This giveaway is another example of our commitment to children’s well being and part of our broader effort to educate children and their parents on the benefits of fruits and vegetables.”
We're not sure if kids will be thrilled to get a bag of apples on Halloween (or anything other than candy, for that matter), but we're happy to hear that McDonald's is trying to introduce kids to healthier food.

Oh uh, Donald! Having some money troubles like Val???
Check out the photos (above, and below) of Donald Trump's Southern California Mansion, which he sold for $5 million LESS than the original asking price!!!
Acccording to Donald, he sold the 11,000 sq ft mansion for $7.15 million because he wasn't spending very much time there, and when he IS in SoCal, he prefers to stay at his property in Beverly Hills.
Is there something else you wanna tell us, Donald? Somehow, you don't strike us as the type of guy who would take a $5 million loss on a property without a good reason!
What do U think? Is Donald Trump having money troubles???
