Hollywood actor Corey Feldman and his two lady friends were left stunned this week when police swarmed his Los Angeles home in response to an apparent prank call. Corey got swatted!
The Goonies star rushed out of his front door with his arms raised when cops and a helicopter arrived at his house to investigate a 911 call reporting an emergency.
In video footage of the scare, obtained by TMZ, Feldman can be seen wearing a robe while being frisked by officers, while two women in lingerie and dressing gowns were also given pat-downs on the street in the middle of the night.
The authorities left Feldman’s property after finally figuring out that the call was a hoax. Feldman is the latest celebrity to fall victim to ‘swatting’ in recent months – previous targets include Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Paris Hilton, Tom Cruise, Clint Eastwood and Ashton Kutcher.

Miley Cyrus and her ex-boyfriend Liam Hemsworth are featured on the cover of the new issue of OK! magazine this week and the story is kind of wild. The magazine is reporting that Miley tried to trap Liam with a baby. If that’s true, then it’s no wonder why he sprinted off in the opposite direction just as fast as he could!
The tabloid states that they have the truth on whether or not a positive pregnancy test kept Liam from dumping her munchkin looking self months ago. It seems a bit desperate, but when you’re in love with someone, a girl could do desperate things. We find it humiliating for those women who think that they have to have a baby with a man in order to keep him. Ugh.
Did she fake a pregnancy to keep him around? The real answer to that is anyone’s guess. What we do know is that they are broken up and that he has already moved on with Eliza Gonzalez. She was reportedly hurt by his decision to go public with his new relationship so quickly, but that’s something you really can’t control when you put your career over your relationship.

There are TV shows that you would proudly broadcast on Facebook or Twitter that you are watching, because they are smart, cultured, popular and trendy – such as “Game of Thrones” or “Breaking Bad”. However, we all know that we don’t always feel like watching an intelligent TV show with things like deep philosophical thoughts, potent social commentary or well… a plot. Sometimes our brains are fried after a long day and we just want to watch the TV version of a tabloid magazine or a rom com – something completely cheesy, devoid of profound thought and full of pretty images. That is why everyone should have at least one guilty pleasure TV show.
Your guilty pleasure show is the one that you watch in your pyjamas on a Sunday morning when you are too hung over to concentrate on anything cerebral, or the one that you binge-watch to cheer yourself up when you have had a terrible day at work. It’s like that carton of ice cream that you secretly eat with a spoon. You would never want to admit it to your friends, but if you started to get no digital TV signal right before your guilty pleasure show was about to start then you would probably cry and throw things at the TV in frustration before calling your satellite dish installers to come sort it out.
So what is your guilty pleasure show? If you don’t have one, here are some great suggestions.
For a show with such repetitive plot lines to be on for more than seven seasons, it’s got to be a lot of people’s guilty pleasure. This delightfully creepy show features Sam and Dean, two impossibly good looking brothers who have taken it upon themselves to rid the world of demons, ghosts, vampires, shape shifters, Leviathans and all sorts of other sinister characters.
There’s a Supernatural drinking game out there which commands you to take a drink whenever one of the boys makes a deal with a demon, someone says “I already went over this with the other cops…”, or when Bobby calls the boys “idjits”.
Secret Diary of a Call Girl
Based on the book by the mysterious “Belle du Jour” and starring Billie Piper (you’ll never watch Dr. Who the same way again), this sexy and funny series might actually make you dream of being a prostitute when you grow up (don’t tell your mother about your new dream.)
It’s only because Belle makes the life of a high class escort look so glamorous, with gorgeous designer fashions, amazing gravity-defying hairstyles and luxurious lingerie. The series is held together loosely by plot lines that usually involve Belle’s relationships with men who can’t quite handle the fact that she sleeps with other men for a profession… and actually likes it. It’s cheesy and funny light watching and Belle’s erotic escapades might just add a little bit of a spark to your love life. It’s not on the air anymore, but you can find all four seasons on Netflix.
This show, which has aired nine seasons so far, follows the lives of surgical interns and residents at the fictional Seattle Grace Hospital (all looking unrealistically well rested and fashionable for medical interns). Shona Rhimes, the show’s creator, unabashedly explained that she wanted to make a show that she would enjoy watching and she has succeeded. The show suffers from quite a few recycled plots, a heavy reliance on musical montages and too many monologues from main character Meredith about “McDreamy”, but overall it is a show that will make you feel warm and fuzzy – just like when the anaesthetic kicks in.
So what’s your guilty pleasure show? Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone.

Khloe Kardashian is on the cover of the new issue of Us Weekly and apparently things are finally over between her and her husband Lamar Odom. We are all aware that Lamar is basically a drug addicted cheater, so why should she stay with him through it?
He’s been addicted to crack for several years now and Khloe kept that from her family. Apparently she didn’t want to ruin their empire. But the cat is out of the bag and now everyone knows what she has been going through with her husband for so long.
We have to take a guess as to what the straw was that broke the camel’s back. Was it all of his crack using? Or perhaps it was how much he was skeeving around behind her back? Either way, it’s all said and done now and reportedly, divorce is imminent.
Honestly, we are surprised that she has put up with him this long. Aren’t you?

My friends and I are very lucky airsoft players. The reason why is because we have the privilege of playing on a private property at no expense. The property is a very woodsy area so there are a ton of trees, vines, sticks, etc. For barriers and other items for cover we have grown accustomed to wooden pallets, barrels, and strong cardboard boxes. Every time we play we go out, set up, and start our different game types that we came up with. I would like to share these game types with all of you fellow airsoft players.
Capture the Flag
This one is pretty self-explanatory so I will not go into great detail. One thing I will mention is that we love this game mode with a timer in place. We also allow players to ‘respawn’ when they die as to eliminate the game from turning into a death match.
Where we play we have a long dirt road that is exposed. One team tries to eliminate the VIP while the other team tries to protect them and escort them to the pick-up zone. During this game mode we have assigned medics on each team. The escort team has more medics than the other team as to make it somewhat balanced. Medics have to go back to their start zone to respawn. Once the VIP gets to the pick-up zone OR gets shot the game is over.
This game mode is really fun. One team is the terrorists. They try to arm a bomb at one of three locations. The “bomb” is pretty much a backpack with a stop watch on it. They try to arm it by starting to stop watch and protecting the bomb until it goes off. You can set the timer to whatever you would like. The other team is the counter terrorists. They try to disarm the bomb or prevent it from being armed under a certain time limit. Both teams can respawn at their start zone.
Team Death match
This game mode is a classic but we try to avoid playing it so often. The reason why is because they lost the longest of any game mode. Since we play deep in the woods with a ton of trees and foliage many people camp or start to be very sneaky. This game mode really does last a long time. You only get one life so you if you get shot once you are out. It is a very fun game mode but can drag on. We started to set a timer once there is only two people left playing.
With all that being said make sure you practice your safety precautions when playing airsoft. Play on private properties and avoid whipping out your guns in public. If you are using airsoft for tactical training for later use of a real gun keep in mind that a real gun can only go so far. If home defense is the reason why you may be training I would also invest in a home security system. Smith security provides excellent services! Check them out.

Nursing is a tough job, but it is also a really compelling career choice that makes for great television shows and movies that are insightful and entertaining. From dramas to comedies, there have been a variety of really great shows on television throughout the years that were based around the lives and workplaces of nurses. Viewers have laughed and cried along with these interesting characters and their storylines, and they continue to look forward to new episodes and new shows that will keep discussing important topics related to this field of work.
Below is a list of just four of the many great television shows that have been centered around nurses and their personal, as well as professional, lives. Continue reading to see if your favorite show is on the list.
Nurse Jackie is a Showtime Original Series, which means that, although you may have heard of it, you can only watch it if you subscribe to the Showtime channel through your cable provider. This show has been on the air since 2009 and it is still going strong. Edie Falco plays the lead role as Jackie Peyton, who is a nurse in New York City’s All Saints’ Hospital emergency room. We get to see her in action as a nurse, dealing with patients, doctors, and fellow nurses, and we also get to see what her personal struggles are as well, making her character very real and relatable.
Scrubs was a comedy that aired from 2001 to 2010 on both NBC and ABC. The entire show was based upon fictional settings, including Sacred Heart teaching hospital, and, of course, fictional characters. The award-winning series took a light-hearted look at what it was like to first intern and then work as a nurse in a hospital environment. Many real nurses loved tuning in to see what hilarious storyline they could relate to next.
Hawthorne is yet another compelling drama series based on the lives of nurses. The show aired on TNT from 2009 to 2011. The show’s main character was portrayed by Jada Pinkett Smith. She played Christina Hawthorne, who was the chief nursing officer at Richmond Trinity Hospital in Richmond, Virginia, but she was later forced to move to James River Hospital. Therefore, real-life nurses who have had to move from one work environment to another were definitely able to relate to the challenges that the character faced as a result of being in a new workplace surrounded by new staff, especially because she always advocated for the patients even when her opinion wasn’t the most popular.
ER was, by far, the most famous of all television shows focused on working in a hospital. It received multiple awards during its time on television from 1994 to 2009. It was the longest-running medical drama ever, and featured realistic scenarios that nurses and other medical professionals could relate to quite easily, from stresses on the job to problems amongst staff members, romantic relationships between staff members, and more.

If you want to live a life that mirrors the exciting lives of characters from famous shows about nurses, you can pursue extra resources on RN to BSN courses to determine if the career is right for you.

You thought only Lady Gaga wears crazy shoes?
The kind of craziness that is coming from the workshops of famous shoe designers can be seen
everywhere – pump shoes, sexy boots, glamorous sandals – name it and you’ll find hundreds of them online and offline. There’s everything from tasty to scandalous to those that do and don’t send a message (really popular in 2013 are statement clothing accessories). Women’s footwear has always been a story of its own and shows the personality of the women wearing it. Therefore it is no wonder that shoes are gaining in importance. Read on and find out about those cool shoes that have left a mark on fashion be it positive or negative and are popular in 2013.
Ashanti opted for Massimo Dogana sandals that cost $ 1.095 (USD). The message sent by these shoes is more than obvious which maybe a little vulgar for an r’n'b singer like her. Black Massimo boots that send the same message are priced at $ 1.495.
Beyonce knows definitely how to attract attention, in a somewhat playful manner which she
demonstrated by her colorful Lego blocks heels, by Balenciaga.
Ciara opted for Dsquared2 heels, which are specific as they are inspired by the fifth vertebrae, and the little more feminine, Giuseppe Zanotti, black ankle boots that are worth $ 1.460.
Heidi Klum unveiled black platform boots from the Alexander McQueen fashion house. They are similar to those she wore by the famous designer Christian Louboutin which are worth $ 1.895 dollars.
Katy Perry wears Prada ‘burning’ high heels that look great on her feet! Similar to these are the
blacks ‘burning’ heels, with a somewhat finer expression, that come from the Alexander McQueen fashion house, that are worth $ 213.50.
As usual, Lady Gaga always chooses the types of shoes that will draw attention to her. This time she decides to show off her futuristic Alexander McQueen snakeskin ankle boots. How she manages to stand let alone walk in them will however remain a mystery.
The queen of pop, Madonna, has always been prone to risky behavior, and this behavior is extended through to her image. She confirmed this by wearing Channel heels that are very specific due to their heel that is in the form of a gun. The price is given on request which makes us think do we even want to know the cost of these controversial heels. At the end of the day, they are certainly original.
Marion Cotillard wore ‘tribal’ Dior sandals. Sculptures representing the heels look very awesome and definitely leave you breathless. The price is available on request.
Nicki Minaj never misses the opportunity to shock, and this time was no different, by wearing turquoise, platform boots that only she can pull off. The shock effect was further achieved with her colored hair, which she did not need to do. The indigo blue Giuseppe Zanotti boots with an extreme heel cost $ 995 and will stand out on some courageous girls just like Nicki.
Taylor Momsen, a ‘burst’ in with S & M inspired boots with lots of buckles which we doubt would be worn by the average girl. Similar to these but somewhat calmer looking boots from the Alexander McQueen fashion house cost $ 790.
As usual Victoria Beckham, choose shoes for the spotlights and the red carpet without fear. She showed her fearlessness by wearing tight black heels Giuseppe Zanotti boots at $ 1.250 a pop. How it is even possible to walk in those boots and what it feels like, we’re not sure we want to know.
Willow Smith is definitely an unusual 12 – year-old girl, a young singer with a very striking image. She has shown this by wearing unusual sneakers.
Which one is your favorite?
