Michael Rapaport Saves Flight By Stopping Passenger From Opening Emergency Door Mid-Air!

This is crazy!!!

Michael Rapaport was flying back to El Lay on Saturday morning on a United Airlines flight from Houston when a man on the flight apparently got up, walked to the front of the plane, and began trying to open the emergency door!

Witnesses confirm that it was Rapaport himself who sprung into action, physically restraining the man involved and preventing him from opening the door with the plane thousands of feet in the air at cruising altitude.

Apparently, Rapaport saw what was happening and immediately jumped from his seat, yelling “What the fuck are you doing?” to the passenger in question before physically restraining him.

Better yet, several former NBA stars on the flight — including Baron Davis, Ryan Hollins, and Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis — rushed up to help Rapaport restrain the man and prevent him from opening the cabin door.

The man’s excuse? He claimed he thought it was a bathroom door, and not the plane’s exit door. Uhhh…. OK.

After the incident, Rapaport was all smiles as he hung out with the basketball players and enjoyed his new nickname “Michael Rapaport Authority,” as you can see (below):

According to United officials, the FBI and airport authorities spoke to the man who tried to open the emergency door, and eventually released him — they say he was very, very confused and had been on the flight to go back home to Vietnam to visit his mother, who is ill.

Regardless, an emergency was averted by the quick-thinking Michael Rapaport.

How ’bout that?!

Momma Perez Tried To “Cure” Us Of Being Gay! Our Painful Past!

We love my Momma Perez. She is a bright light and our fiercest cheerleader. But growing up gay and Latino in Miami in the 1980s was hard so hard for us.

And for her too!

Thankful that she allowed herself to open up and be vulnerable in this video!

We all make mistakes. Nobody is perfect. We grow. We get better.

We, hopefully, inspire! That’s the goal with this video!

Watch! Enjoy! Share!

Seth Rogen Once Turned Down Paul Ryan’s Request For A Photo!

Seth Rogen is not feeling Paul Ryan!

The controversial Republican politician fond of cutting taxes so he can slash the social safety net is also, apparently, a fan of Rogen’s comedic work — but it’s safe to say the Canadian funnyman is no fan of Paul Ryan!!

Rogen was on Stephen Colbert‘s Late Show last night, and amid discussing things like Canada’s now-fully-legalized marijuana, the Knocked Up star let slip a very funny story about Ryan trying to get a picture during an Alzheimer’s awareness benefit!

Ch-ch-check out the story as Rogen tells it (above) — and, oh yeah, heads up in that clip for a SECOND great story about Anthony Scaramucci, too!

What is it with these brain-dead moron GOP politicians?! LOLz!!

Joe Giudice Is Reportedly In The Process Of Being Deported Back To Italy — RHONJ Star Denies It

According to officials involved with ICEImmigration and Customs EnforcementReal Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice is currently in the process of being deported back to Italy.

Teresa Giudice‘s husband, who is currently serving a 41-month sentence in federal prison on bankruptcy fraud charges, is allegedly “in removal proceedings to return to his native Italy,” according to an ICE spokesman speaking to the media late yesterday.

Giudice isn’t scheduled for release from federal prison until March of 2019, but there’s a possibility that he could be sent back home to his native Italy before the sentence is up.

And if/when the reality TV star hubby gets back there, he may find it somewhat difficult to adjust, considering he’s spent his entire life in the United States after coming to the country as a baby… he just never took the steps to become a citizen, and instead has been a legal permanent resident his whole life here.

Now, that may come back to haunt him as it’s apparently likely he’ll be deported either during or at the very end of his prison sentence. We’ll see how he and Teresa — and the kids — cope with this potential new reality moving forward.

For what it’s worth, though, Joe himself denies the report that deportation proceedings have begun; the Giudice family attorney, James J. Leonard Jr., released a statement to the media that alleges no deportation actions have taken place recently (below):

“I can state with absolute certainty that no decision has been made regarding the immigration status of Joe Giudice. The same immigration detainer that was lodged against him in March of 2016 remains in place today, but I want to be absolutely clear about this, no judicial authority has made any decision regarding what will happen with that detainer … Mr. Giudice has immigration counsel who are and have been working aggressively on his behalf so that he can return home to his wife and four young daughters and we remain optimistic that that is how this will end.”

Well now that’s confusing — so which is it??

Regardless of what might end up happening, it appears we may not know a great deal more until early 2019 when Joe’s sentence and the rest of the family’s legal troubles begin to wrap up.

That’ll come sooner than you think.

Real Housewives of Rome could have a nice ring to it…

XXXTentacion Bought FOUR Homes For Family Members In The Weeks Leading Up To His Murder…

This is one hell of a coincidence in timing… or it could be linked somehow to the idea that XXXTentacion‘s murder was premeditated, and had been a long time in coming, as we’ve been reporting.

Regardless, though, after the South Florida rapper’s death earlier this week, new information is coming to light that appears to indicate the fact that he left his family members in a good place — at least as far as real estate is concerned.

According to TMZ, the rapper recently purchased at least four homes for family members around him in the weeks leading up to his death.

The four homes — all purchased in South Florida, and all bought between April and June — combined to total $1.7 million in real estate transactions, with the breakdown as follows (below):

1- $420,000 for a 3 bed, 2 bath 2,000 square foot home

2- $467,500 for a 4 bed, 2 bath 2,300 square foot home

3- $385,000 for a 4 bed, 2 bath 2,100 square foot home

4- $500,000 for a 4 bed, 3 bath 2,700 square foot home


Sources claim that those homes are gifts to parents, aunts and uncles, and grandparents — and that XXXTentacion wanted everybody around him to be taken care of once he started making money.
