Saudi Arabian man divorces wife on wedding night after seeing compromising pictures of her
According to a report out of Saudi Arabia, a man ended his marriage the night of his wedding after being given explicit pictures of his bride by her former lover. The couple were celebrating their marriage at a hotel when the groom received a bouquet of flowers with a memory stick that contained the photos.
“That’s a rough one,” said Minihane, who professed no desire to attend any more weddings. “You’ve got to know that about a girl, though. Some girls just whiff of danger. You don’t marry those girls.”
“Yeah, but some people like that,” Meterparel countered.
The hosts proceeded to discuss whether they would get remarried should their first marriages end, and how an open marriage isn’t as appealing as it sounds.
Said Minihane of having a swinging experience with another couple: “I think life is totally done after that. ‘¦ I don’t think I’d be comfortable with that.”
Brooklyn woman shares apartment with dead mother for three years
A 28-year-old Brooklyn woman lived with her dead mother in a cramped apartment for three years, propping her up at the dinner table and sleeping next to her skeleton in the kitchen every night, according to the New York Post.
Chava Stirn even dressed like her deceased mother, wearing a black outfit and shoes that 61-year-old Susie Rosenthal had on when she died. Stirn never left the apartment, neighbors said. Emergency workers knocked down her door Monday when she refused to allow in the superintendent who was trying to investigate a leak coming from the apartment.
“It’s a scene right out of ‘Psycho.’ ‘¦ This is one of the weirdest cases I’ve ever seen,” a law-enforcement source told the Post.
“At least you know it’s going to be a consistent conversation,” Meterparel said. “You know what you get from a sack of bones.”
Leonardo DiCaprio rumored to be interested in starring in remake of ‘The Shining’
“Bad movie remake project here that’s being rumored around. Nobody has any interest in this,” Minihane said. “DiCaprio evidently interested in playing [Jack] Nicholson‘s role in ‘The Shining.’ ”
Added Minihane: “The first ‘Shining’ was so overrated. [Stanley] Kubrick is the overrated film director.”
This led into a discussion of TV-38′s old “The Movie Loft” and another show on that station that Minihane and Meterparel enjoyed, “Ask the Manager” — in which the station’s GM explained programming decisions.
