Oakland Raiders star receiver ANTONIO BROWN had mysterious blisters on his feet, where his skin was peeling away . . . and at first they couldn’t figure out why. But now we know: He has FROSTBITE. Antonio didn’t spend the off-season hiking barefoot through the tundra . . . but he DID use a cryotherapy machine without the right footwear.  That caused his feet to “burn” and essentially become frostbitten.  He’s seeing a specialist, and is considered day-to-day.  Some athletes use cryotherapy to relieve muscle pain and swelling. And if you’re spending time in a cold chamber, you should probably protect your feet.  Especially if your feet are a major part of you earning $20 million a year.

56 year old Osmonds singer Jimmy Osmond is unlikely to ever be able to perform live again after suffering a stroke on stage in Birmingham last December.

His brother, Merrill, has revealed Jimmy is unlikely to recover well enough to professionally perform in front of the public in future.

 

Don’t be surprised to hear that KANE BROWN is looking for a new house because the one he’s in now has a rattlesnake on the grounds. He posted a video of his wife Katelyn Jae totally freaking out as they watch it slither across the driveway. It looks like a timber rattlesnake, and they can kill you.

 

MIRANDA LAMBERT had the perfect comeback to an Internet troll who wrote a mean remark on that video she posted of her husband frying chicken on their front porch. Commenting on their marriage, the person wrote, “It won’t last.”  So Miranda defused it with, “Sure won’t.  I’m gonna eat every piece of it.  Can’t waste chicken.”

 

New music is on the way from Tracy Lawrence! He will release ‘Made in America’, his first studio album of new music in 6 years, on Aug. 16, on his own Lawrence Music Group record label. He says, “I didn’t want it to be political at all. I wanted it to be really removed from that, just to go back to being proud of being an American.  And I think we achieved that.”

The charity auction will award the grand prize winner and a friend a couple of round-trip tickets to LA, a stay at a luxury hotel, and some time in the kitchen baking cookies with Jennifer. All money raised will go to the Epilepsy Foundation.
