August 23rd, 2013 // Leave a Comment

A perky looking Taylor Swift stopped for some dinner at The Farm in Beverly Hills, California yesterday (August 22, 2013). While she may look like she’s all calm, cool and collected, she has a persistent trespasser problem that has become somewhat of an issue.

A 55-year-old Taylor Swift fan (already creepy) is due in court today to face charges of trespassing at the singer’s Rhode Island retreat in July. Joseph Bernatche has pleaded not guilty to a charge of wilful trespass stemming from his arrest at the star’s beach house on July 27, 2013.

The Maine native allegedly drove all the way to Swift’s property and handed a security guard a note with his phone number and asked him to pass it on to the singer. Bernatche was pulled over by police officers as he drove away and they later charged him with ignoring a no-trespassing notice he was given after allegedly making his way onto the star’s property in April.  Read More »

Antoinette Tuff is the definition of a hero. She has GUTS.

Tuff, an employee at Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy just outside Atlanta, is being called a ‘real hero’ for how she talked down a gunman at the elementary school.

The suspect, identified as Michael Brandon Hill, slipped inside behind someone else with AK-47 type weapon. He then, according to CNN, reportedly entered the office and shot at the ground, before jumping between inside and outside to fire at police.

Tuff has now revealed in an interview with ABC News that she talked to Hill during the ordeal – opening up to him in a cool and compassionate manner. She divulged her personal struggles to the gunman, trying to find a way to relate to him even as he “load[ed] up with ammunition in front of her and several other employees who were being held hostage.”  Read More »
