On today’s episode of “There’s no way we can make this stufff up…” A Florida man tried to kiss a rattlesnake, but ended up being bitten on the tongue by the creature instead. Action News Jax reports that Ron Reinold was playing with the snake when he made his move. “Ron was just acting silly, you know? I guess he said he could kiss the devil and get away with it, but evidently he didn’t,” neighbor Charles Goff explained. Reinold was flown to the hospital by helicopter in critical condition after the encounter on Tuesday, but is doing much better now and is expected to survive. The snake is believed to have escaped after the encounter. It’s still not clear why Reinold tried to kiss the snake in the first place.

Miley Cyrus has revealed that she regrets making such a provocative music video for her hit “Wrecking Ball.” “That’s something you can’t take away… swinging around naked on a wrecking ball lives forever,” she admitted in a recent radio interview. “Once you do that in the mass that I did, it’s forever.” She added, “I’m never living that down. I will always be the naked girl on a wrecking ball. No matter how much I just frolic with Emu, I’m always the naked girl on the wrecking ball… I should have thought how long that was going to have to follow me around.” She also joked, “That’s my worst nightmare is that being played at my funeral. That’s my worst nightmare… is being like, ‘We’ll always remember Miley,’ and then that. ‘She was a great person.'”
Team Alicia’s Chris Blue, Team Blake’s Lauren Duski and Aliyah Moulden, and Team Adam’s Jesse Larson were named the four finalists on Tuesday night’s dramatic episode of The Voice.

This performane of Chris Stapleton’s Tennessee Whiskey saved Jesse on the Voice last night:
PEOPLE Magazine reports that Chick-fil-a made a huge announcement on Monday 5/15! The popular restaurant chain is releasing a limited-edition chicken sandwich. But this won’t be an ordinary chicken sandwich. It will be a Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich that will have grilled chicken, brown sugar glazed bacon, lettuce and colby jack cheese on a Hawaiian bun. Then to make the meal even better you can add their new Watermelon Mint Lemonade which they say was “made to complement the flavors of the new sandwich.” The drink is also available in diet form. So yes… Chick-fil-a will still be the hottest fast food restaurant to go to this summer, except Sundays of course. “We know our customers love the flavors of our grilled menu, and we are excited to offer two items this season that will give them something new to try,” said David Farmer, Chick-fil-A vice president of menu strategy and development. The new sandwich is Chick-fil-A’s first-ever seasonal entrée, and both items will only be available from May 15 through August 19. Read more HERE… People.com

Okay, in all seriousness when you hear him explain his reasoning … it doesn’t sound as crazy. LOL Australian millionaire Tim Gurner thinks that millennials are unable to buy homes because they’re wasting money on things like avocado toast. “When I was trying to buy my first home, I wasn’t buying smashed avocado for $19 and four coffees at $4 each,” he told Australia’s version of 60 Minutes over the weekend. “We’re at a point now where the expectations of younger people are very, very high. They want to eat out every day, they want travel to Europe every year. The people that own homes today worked very, very hard for it [and] saved every dollar, did everything they could to get up the property investment ladder.” The internet has since mocked the 35-year-old construction mogul, who’s worth an estimated $460 million, for his comments. “Alright, I did the math. If I stopped eating avocado toast every day, I would be able to afford a bad house in Los Angeles in 642 years,” one tweeted. Another simply quipped, “B**ch, don’t tell me how to brunch.”
Monday night’s episode of Dancing with the Stars was an emotional one for some. Olympic gymnast SImone Biles and her pro partner Sasha Farber were eliminated on Monday night’s episode of DWTS–an upset that drew loud boos from the crowd. But the 20-year-old, who was favored to win at the start of the season, remained gracious and continued sporting her huge smile. “I’m just thankful to be at this competition,” she said. “I feel like I’ve learned a lot about myself.” Biles’ elimination means that the three finalists competing for the Mirror Ball next week will be Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei, football player Rashad Jennings and former baseball star David Ross. Ironically, Biles earned higher scores than all of them last night. “Unreal. I’m shocked,” host Erin Andrews Andrews observed as the other competitors bid farewell to Biles. “Makes next week even bigger. You have to get your votes in.”
Well this will be interesting… According to a new article published by Cosmopolitan, a new brand recently launched on Kickstarter is making one-piece outfits for men under the name “RompHim.” Photos shared on The Original RompHim Instagram shows a bunch of fellas wearing the men’s version of the popular fashion trend while drinking beers, going to Coachella and watching a game at the ballpark. The line currently features several pastel colors, a splattered paint look and at least one “America!” riff labeled the “4th of July Special Edition”. Each RompHim also features a front shirt pocket, adjustable waist tabs, a zippered back pocket, and a zipper fly. What do you think of the guys finally having a one piece outfit to sport?
On Monday night’s episode of The Voice, the Top 8 performers split up in pairs to perform duets. Early in the evening, Team Alicia’s Vanessa Ferguson and Chris Blue gave a stirring performance of their coach’s hit “If I Ain’t Got You.” Later, Team Gwen’s Hunter Plake and Team Blake’s Aliyah Moulden tackled James Bay’s “Let It Go” and Team Blake’s TSoul and Team Adam’s Jesse Larson traded verses on “I Wish” by Stevie Wonder.

“This Is Us” was probably one of the most talked about shows of the spring 2017. Every week people were talking about it on social media. Each episode bringing new tears and depth to the story line. This video they made to promote season 2 of “This Is Us” pulls just as many tears as the actual show. They brought fans out to talk about how their lives were similar to that of the characters, bringing the characters to tears as they listened to the fans talk and tell their story. Then each character got to surprise the fans! Watch…
ABC is “close” to landing KATY PERRY to be the main judge on “American Idol”. TMZ says they’ll make an official announcement tomorrow when they announce their schedule for next season at their ‘upfront’ presentation. As of right now, they will probably only announce one judge since “Idol” still isn’t sure what they will be doing for the other two open spots. If you think about it, the show is on a tight budget this time around, so after making a big splash with Katy, the other two spots will probably go to cheaper options . . . like a songwriter and a music producer. And remember, rumors are still flying around that they are trying to get Ryan Seacrest to host the show, and lets be serious… he’ll probably command a chunk of change, too. For what it’s worth, WILLIAM HUNG recently said he’s “willing to consider” being a judge, guest judge or performer on the new “Idol”. He also said he doesn’t think that Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson betrayed the show by signing up to be coaches on NBC’s “The Voice”. And NBC is insisting that they DIDN’T sign Kelly and Jennifer to keep them from “Idol”. Apparently NBC has been trying to ring those two in for a while now but with life and the timing… it just never seemed to happen, until now.
Brett Eldredge has premiered another new single!!! It’s called “The Long Way,” which will appear on his forthcoming self-titled album that is suppose to be released the first week in August! The video above is an acoustic version he posted to his Instagram and since he sings to his dog, Edgar we figured we would share it with you. The video below is the official audio video. “For me, ‘Long Way’ stands out as such a powerful look at love and that search for something deeper,” Eldredge says of the mellow love ballad in a press release. “It’s about that big moment when you finally meet the person you’ve been waiting to meet, and you want to know everything about them. You don’t just want a quick breeze through their hometown and life, you want to take the long way. It’s a beautiful sentiment about love.”
It looks as if a huge Taylor Swift fan, Ashley Silver, took a leap of faith and invited her favorite singer to her graduation party just to see what would happen… and Taylor Swift responded. The 27-year-old singer sent a sweet handwritten note and a huge bouquet of flowers to the new grad over the weekend. “I INVITED TAYLOR TO MY GRADUATION PARTY AND SHE SENT ME FLOWERS AND THIS CARD. I LOVE YOU HONEY @taylorswift13,” Silvers captioned a photo of her gifts on Twitter. She also told E! News that she was thankful to Taylor for “showing me that you see us and appreciate us just as much as we do you.” In her letter, Taylor congratulated Silvers on her graduation and expressed regret that she can’t make it. “The New York theme, the photo booth, it being on the 13th… that’s my kinda party,” she wrote. She went on to tell Silvers, “I’m so proud of you, your hard work and dedication, your excitement and ambition. I’m very lucky that a girl like you cares about me.” I INVITED TAYLOR TO MY GRADUATION PARTY AND SHE SENT ME FLOWERS AND THIS CARD I LOVE YOU HONEY @taylorswift13 pic.twitter.com/8qQ6gTNeyP — Ashley (@AshSilv13) May 13, 2017

Steve Harvey isn’t sorry about the leaked memo that says his staff is not allowed to speak to him unless they are directly spoken to by him. “I’ve always had a policy where, you know, you can come and talk to me–so many people are great around here, but some of them just started taking advantage of it,” he told Entertainment Tonight on Thursday evening, a day after the lengthy message went viral. “I could not find a way to walk from the stage to my dressing room, to sit in my makeup chair, to walk from my dressing room to the stage or to just sit and have lunch without somebody just walking in. I’ve always had a policy where, you know, you can come and talk to me — so many people are great around here, but some of them just started taking advantage of it.” He continued, “Look man, I’m in my makeup chair, they walk in the room. I’m having lunch, they walk in, they don’t knock. I’m in the hallway, I’m getting ambushed by people with friends that come to the show and having me sign this and do this. I just said, ‘Wait a minute.'” The talk show host continued, “If you come out your house, you don’t want anybody on your porch waiting on you,” he said. “You walk to your car, you don’t want people bothering you on your way to your car. Everybody wants the freedom to be able to move around… I just didn’t want to be in this prison anymore where I had to be in this little room, scared to go out and take a breath of fresh air without somebody approaching me, so I wrote the letter. I don’t apologize about the letter, but it’s kind of crazy what people who took this thing and ran, man.”

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Billy Ray Cyrus reveals how daughter Miley’s decision to temporarily give up marijuana has been a positive move. “I don’t know how to break it down more than just the fact that I see a joy in her spirit and something coming from within that is just pure beauty, if you will,” Billy Ray explains. The “Achy Break Heart” singer goes on to say that he’s never seen his daughter more sharp. “Her instincts, everything is at the top of its game,” he adds. “…Sometimes you have to clear out the junk. And then you realize what’s most important. Whatever is going on, it’s working for her.” Miley revealed in a recent Billboard cover story that she’d stopped smoking a few weeks before the interview.
