Remember that horrendeous 1996 TWA 800 air crash disaster where the plane exploded shorty after takeoff from New York, killing all 230 people on board? Remember all the rumors that it was accidentally shot down by the navy, who were doing training in the area, or a terrorist? Remember the eyewitnesses who said they saw a light shooting up from the ocean?

Evidently a new doco has new evidence to suggest a missile hit the right wing and the whole thing was a whopping cover-up. Six former investigators, who broke their silence over the cover-up, have filed a petition to have the case reopened.

OK, Louise retired two years ago due to arthritis and the fact she could no longer get her leg over…oh never mind. Anywho the Dutch women are now starring in a documentary about their life.
Fergie (Duchess of York) is in big doodah again, and this time she could spent 22 years in the slammer. Seems Turkish authorities aren’t too pleased with her 2008 documentary where she went undercover to expose the appalling abuse of children in an Ankara orphanage. Fergie is accused of going “against the law in acquiring footage and violating privacy” of five children. She better hope their isn’t an extradition treaty with Britain because she might have more than her toe sucked in a Turkish prisons.

OK, I’m sorry, I’ve got to say it….Casey Affleck you are a friggin idiot. Phew, there I said it. Friggin smug fool has just announced that the documentary about Joaquin Phoenix’s meltdown, “I’m Still Here” was a hoax. No shit Sherlock. Hello, do you think we are that stupid? We already friggin knew that! For crying out loud for the last year every friggin Hollywood gossip site and magazine has been reporting that Joaquin’s weird behavior is fake . I even outta ya. You missed the mockumentary boat, it sailed in 2004. OK, I know you are brothers-in-law and all, but really, this is some kind of awkward. I just hope this doesn’t ruin Phoenix’s career! Yours, I’m not all that worried about!
