A chaotic scene unfolded at the Ohio State Fair after a ride malfunctioned during opening day — killing one person and injuring several others.
U.S. Senator John McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer, according to a statement released by the Mayo Clinic on his behalf on Wednesday (July 19).
The statement read, “On Friday, July 14, Sen. John McCain underwent a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot.
Scanning done since the procedure (a minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision) shows that the tissue of concern was completely resected by imaging criteria.
The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.
The Senator’s doctors say he is recovering from his surgery ‘amazingly well’ and his underlying health is excellent.”
A statement was also released by McCain’s office, “Senator McCain appreciates the outpouring of support he has received over the last few days. He is in good spirits as he continues to recover at home with his family in Arizona. He is grateful to the doctors and staff at Mayo Clinic for their outstanding care, and is confident that any future treatment will be effective. Further consultations with Senator McCain’s Mayo Clinic care team will indicate when he will return to the United States Senate.”
OJ Simpson is going before the Parole board in Nevada for a hearing tomorrow about his release. In what some say is an unusal the case the actual victim in this crime, the sport memorabilia collector that Simpson robbed will be testifying in Simpson’s defense FOR the early release.

Aramis Ayala, Florida‘s first Black female state attorney, was pulled over by a pair of police officers last month in Orlando. The now-viral body camera clip of the cops trying to shake down one of the most powerful women in the state for garbage reasons has been making the rounds with many calling a flag on the play.
Ayala, who resides in Orlando, was driving on June 19 when the two white officers pulled her over and surrounded both sides of her vehicle. In the exchange, Ayala is agreeable and doesn’t offer conflict, even when one of the officers ask why does she have a state attorney sign on her license.
The plot thickened when Ayala inquired what the stop was over, to which the officer fumbled that her windows were too dark although he’s heard admitting he had no accurate way of measuring it. Further, they said that running her tags pulled up no information on the vehicle, another likely story.
Many on social media reacted to clip, saying that this was a classic case of “Driving While Black” and we can imagine those two cops are jockeying a desk and making coffee rounds for the whole precinct after this incredible gaffe. Let’s not pretend that Ayala is a bit of a thorn in the side to Republican Gov. Rick Scott due to her refusal to seek the death penalty in trying criminal cases, which has those Blue Lives Matters dillweeds hot on her trail.
On tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny Frankel’s ex-husband is put on blast for his being arrested after a confrontation with Frankel at their daughter’s school.
An NYPD spokesperson spoke to Us Weekly and said that in January 2017, Hoppy was arrested after contacting Frankel “numerous times via email and FaceTime, and approached [the] victim making verbal threats.” Hoppy allegedly approached Frankel at their daughter Bryn’s school and said: You can play your game. It doesn’t matter. You can get 10 lawyers. There’s nothing you can do to stop me. You’ll be sorry. The case was then adjourned until April 26, 2017. Then, People reported that Hoppy filed for dismissal of the case.
But, it doesn’t look like this will happen, as a spokesperson from the New York District Attorney’s Office told People that:
Hoppy was arraigned on additional charges, including one count of stalking in the third degree, another count of stalking in the fourth degree and some additional conduct. The case was adjourned to Aug. 8 for a decision on motions.
After Hoppy’s arrest, his former attorney Robert C. Gottlieb released the following statement:
There are no words to express how saddened Mr. Hoppy is over his ex-wife’s unjustified actions. His only concern is his daughter and intends to vigorously fight these false charges.
For the last two seasons, Frankel has opened up about her emotional and traumatic divorce that she says has been like torture. Now, though the divorce has ended, she still has to deal with her ex-husband since they have one child together. On an episode of Real Housewives of New York, Frankel talked about the aftermath of her divorce, saying:
I don’t know why I’m being punished this way. My custody situation is over, my financial settlement is over, my apartment is sold, and yet I sometimes feel hopeless. And I sometimes feel like my ex is untouchable and I’m not going to be able to get out of this.
Frankel’s friend Carole Radziwill has said on the show that Hoppy has sent numerous insulting text messages, calling Frankel old, ugly and implying that she’s a bad mother.
Jason Hoppy and his legal representation have denied the allegations against him.
