The Simpsons is now in its 29th season and back in 2010, the show predicted the U.S. defeating Sweden in curling for Olympic gold. The episode titled “Boy Meets Curl” originally aired February 14, 2010 and pairs Homer and Marge Simpson with Agnes and Seymour Skinner on a mixed curling team.  Marge becomes the team’s standout and the team defeats Sweden.

 

Sunday night HEATHER LOCKLEAR was arrested for attacking her boyfriend. One source says she almost bit off the tip of his nose.  But whatever she did, it left some kind of “visible mark”, so they tried to arrest her.  She became “combative”.  She punched a female cop and a male cop, then kicked another male officer in the groin.  They had to actually force her into a police car. Heather was charged with one felony count of domestic battery, and three misdemeanor charges of battery on a peace officer. She was released yesterday morning after posting $20,000 bail. Heather’s boyfriend was arrested just a few hours later for DRIVING DRUNK.  They had been high school sweethearts who had started dating again.

BRANTLEY GILBERT has been very open about his past struggles with addiction. He is not ashamed to talk about it because that’s part of who he is . . . and it’s an important story for him to share. “My past is who I am.  [There] was a time when I was a person that I wasn’t so proud of.  But I made changes and I’m a fighter and I beat it, and I beat it every day.  And I don’t mind sharing that story.”
