Angry hubby posts raunchy pics of wife all over town

Internalized anger is a ticking time-bomb which can lead to abusive or self-destructive behavior, or a combination of both.

Just six months after the couple wed, Ian Cuthbert heard allegations that his wife had been in a relationship with another man.

It all started when Alison Kidd moved out of their home. The 46 years old posted raunchy pictures of his 34 year old wife in her underwear all over their local town with the captions – "Lock Up Your Husbands" and "Married and committing adultery within days".

The IT boss from Broxburn, West Lothian posted the fliers on trees, lamp posts, local entries and on a noticeboard of the school where the woman worked.

He was said to be in an "extreme state" when he put up the fliers believing his wife had been unfaithful and cheated on him.

Allison was left shocked and embarrassed. She called the police and Ian was charged with distributing offensive pictures of his wife after pleading guilty.

The couple is now in the process of getting a divorce.

Ugandan newspaper names 200 homos

Just a day after the Ugandan President signed the anti-gay bill into law, the Red Pepper tabloid has published a list of 200 people it accused of being gay and called for them to be executed.

The daily newspaper published the names and some pictures of men and women it claims are homos in a front-page under the headline: "Exposed!".

Amongst those listed include Ugandan gay activist Pepe Julian Onziema, Jacqueline Kasha - a well known lesbian activist, hip hop artist as well as a Catholic priest.

In 2011, prominent Ugandan gay rights activist David Kato was brutally murdered at his home after a different newspaper splashed photos, names and addresses of gay people on its front page along with a yellow banner reading "Hang Them".

President Yoweri Museveni said he could not understand how one could fail to be attracted to all those beautiful women and be attracted to a man.

Under Uganda's new-anti-gay law, gay s3x is punishable by life imprisonment.

Museveni earlier this month also signed into law anti-pornography and dress code legislation which outlaws "provocative" clothing.

Garcelle slams Beyoncé: "you can be sexy without being overt"

In a recent interview with Hello Beautiful, Garcelle Beauvais calls out women in entertainment who show too much skin ― wearing super-revealing costumes.

But it looks like G was referencing someone specifically. The 47 year old actress and former fashion model wants Beyoncé to button up a bitsays she can still be sexy without going overboard.
For me, there’s so many ways to be sexy without being overt about it. I think you can wear a great short dress, but if you have long sleeves and you’re only showing leg. I think you have to stick to a body part and show that. I don’t think you have to show all of it.

As I get older, I still want to be sexy, but I want to do it in a different way. I want to do it in a way that’s more classy.

Certain things are just too overt for kids. I love Beyoncé . I love her. I think she’s beautiful and talented. But, I think there has to be a fine line where you have to take responsibility for what you do. I think it’s good to be sexy, but sexy can come across in so many different ways. It doesn't have to be everything showing out grinding, all of the time.

World's most-wanted drug lord is caught in Mexico

It took 13 years to catch him but every story has an end!......

The world's most powerful and elusive drug lord, Joaquín Guzmán Loera, known as El Chapo, has reportedly been captured in Mexico ― ending a 13-year manhunt for the chief supplier of illegal drugs.

El Chapo (Shorty), was busted last night at a hotel in the beach resort town of Mazatlán, Sinaloa, following a lengthy joint operation between U.S. federal law enforcement agencies and Mexican authorities.

Guzmán, is a grade-school dropout who entered the drug world at the age of 15, rising through the criminal ranks to become head of the Sinaloa Cartel, the largest crime syndicate in Mexico.

Sinaloa Cartel smuggles multi-ton shipments of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and methamphetamine from Mexico to the United States.

The ring has used small planes, 747 jumbo jets, boats, railroad cars and vast tunnels running under the border to smuggle narcotics into foreign countries, most of it bound for the United States.

Man inks spider tattoo on his face to overcome his fear

How do you overcome your fear of spiders? someone has a solution for you!

Eric Ortiz from Deltona, Florida, has invented his particular method of dealing with arachnophobia by tattooing a black widow spider on his face.

The 24 years old said:
Everybody fears spiders. That’s why I got it. Just to, like, make me know, that that’s what I fear, but not to fear it.

Everybody looks at it like, “Damn spider” ’cause if you’re going around your house, you know what I’m saying, you see those spiders, you’re going to jump, you’re going to jump, so putting one on my face, I say.

Some people say ‘Why did you get it? You’re never going to get a job. Some people say “It’s cool, man".
His girlfriend wasn’t too happy, though.

Kanye and Kim reportedly fake proposal for TV show

It’s not the first time the Keeping up with the Kardashians has been accused of faking scenes......

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were reportedly already engaged before his over-the-top proposal at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

According to Radar Online, Mr. West already popped the question to Kim as she was spotted with her engagement ring, a full week before the next episode when she actually gets engaged.

The 'realness' of the show is questionable ― many people don't think there is anything real about the show at all.

Fake scenes are edited to make the viewer believe what producers want them to.

Frankly the proposal was planned. I watched the episode titled "A Surprise Engagement Pt. 2" ....for real!, Kim didn't seem very surprised.....she was acting like she knew.

See the below screen grabs from the episode titled "A Surprise Engagement Pt. 1" that clearly show the 33 years old wearing her huge 15-carat diamond ring before West actually proposed.
