Another scary moment
Olympian Bode Miller and his wife are detailing a scary incident that sent their three young children to the hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning. On Instagram, the skiing champ said a construction crane was to blame: "Earlier this week we had a crane parked in our driveway for a few hours. Despite keeping the kids inside for obvious safety reasons, the little ones got really sick from it," Bode wrote.
Bode's wife, pro volleyball player Morgan Beck, shared a video from the hospital while further detailing the incident: "Two weeks ago, we had a crane at our house to remove our broken hot tub. Asher, Aksel and Scarlet innocently stood on the front step of our house to watch the action which resulted in them getting carbon monoxide poisoning due to the lack of airflow in our driveway landing them in the ER. They were on high flow oxygen for over four hours. It was a terrifying experience but thanking my lucky stars they are okay," she wrote.
Back in 2018, Bode and Morgan lost their 19-month-old daughter, Emmy, when she drowned in a swimming pool. The Olympian has two older children from previous relationships.
One of Jamie Lynn Spears' former "Zoey 101" co-stars claims Britney Spears' little sister made their workplace "very toxic." Alexa Nikolas, who starred alongside Jamie Lynn on the Nickelodeon show for two seasons, made the accusations on the YouTube podcast channel H3. "I got put through the wringer on that show, it was a pretty bad three years," she said. "Jamie Lynn Spears just created a very toxic, unhealthy work environment."
The former actress said Britney's sister didn't like her from the get-go. "She was just very taken aback by my personality, I think, and just kind of gave me the cold shoulder," Alexa said. Soon after, things "escalated" to bullying. "It just started to snowball, basically, and then it became bullying where she would just say harsh things to me like, 'Why do you smile so much?' You know like this kid bullying s*** basically. But you know, at that time it hurt. When I was a kid," Alexa alleged, claiming Jamie Lynn "created the culture of the set." She added, "And her not liking me made everyone else kind of feel like, I think, they had to also engage in that type of behavior."
Sinéad O'Connor gave her children very specific instructions on what to do if she died suddenly. "See, when the artists are dead, they're much more valuable than when they're alive," she told People magazine in 2021. "Tupac [Shakur] has released way more albums since he died than he ever did alive, so it's kind of gross what record companies do." The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer, who passed on July 26, trained her kids when they were "very small" to call her finance people before anyone else — including medics. She recalled telling them that if she "drops dead tomorrow, before you called 911, call my accountant and make sure the record companies don't start releasing my records and not telling you where the money is." Sinead is survived by three children: Jake, 36, daughter Roisin, 27, and son Yeshua, 16. Her 17-year-old son Shane died in January 2022. Sinead never recovered from the tremendous loss, friends said. Sinead's death is "not being treated as suspicious," police said.
GoFundMe clap back
Megan Fox is slamming haters who've criticized her for promoting a friend's GoFundMe campaign. Earlier in the week, the "Transformers" actress asked her Instagram followers to donate to a fund set up for her nail tech's father, who was diagnosed with cancer. Fans slammed Megan, claiming she should have donated herself because she's worth an estimated $8M.
By Thursday, July 27, Megan had seen enough of her generosity being questioned: "Hey weirdos, do any of you have the emotional intelligence to consider that maybe [my friend] brit doesn't want her celebrity clients donating large sums of money to her because it creates a dynamic in her working relationships that makes her uncomfortable?" she wrote on her Instagram Story. Megan said that Brittney Boyce, her nail tech, simply asked the actress to share the fundraising page with her 21M Instagram followers.
"I just obliged her request. Anything she needs from me personally, she will ask and I will do it privately," Megan said. "One thing you're not going to accuse me of is being miserly or lacking generosity. So try again on another day (probably tmrw!) with some different bulls*** you bunch of psychos."
The fund's initial goal was set at $30K, which is the same amount Megan's fiancé, Machine Gun Kelly, paid for a diamond-encrusted manicure last year.
The 2023 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast has fallen victim to the actors and writers strikes. Numerous media outlets have confirmed that the Emmys, which were originally scheduled for Sept. 18, are being postponed. The reports come two weeks after Emmy nominations were announced. Variety reported that vendors, producers and others involved with the awards show were being informed of the postponement. The Emmys were last postponed in 2001 in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. A new date has yet to be announced, but the ceremony likely won't happen until the strikes have settled.
Booted from the bar
"The Real Housewives of Orange County" star Shannon Beador was kicked out of a bar after "screaming" at her ex-boyfriend's daughter. Page Six reported that the reality TV star was at Tiki Bar in Costa Mesa, California, when the shouting incident went down. According to a witness, Shannon was "wasted" and "had to be held back and removed by security." John Janssen, the TV star's ex, was at the bar with Shannon. It's unclear what prompted the screaming match between Shannon and his daughter. Page Six reported that "numerous photos" show "men in Tiki Bar security shirts physically escorting an upset-and disheveled-looking Beador off the premises." Shannon's ex downplayed the incident and indicated the whole party was asked to leave, but only because the bar was closing. "Yes, there was an argument, but it was at the end of the night, the lights were up, and everyone was being asked to leave," he claimed.
