Don Lemon apparently isn’t playing any games when it comes to not answering his questions on air.
On Friday, the CNN anchor discussed Donald Trump’s tirade against Ted Cruz including a tweet where the GOP frontrunner critiqued Heidi Cruz’s looks.
Lemon then asked Trump supporter and former reality star Omarosa her opinion about the retweets comparing Trump’s and Cruz’s wives. Omarosa refused to answer saying, “I don’t think we should start there.” Well, Lemon didn’t take too kindly on being told how to run his show.
“I’m not gonna let you do that. Omarosa, stop!”
Omarosa continued to talk over Lemon and that’s when he lost it. “Cut the mic, everybody. We’re not doing that. I want everyone on this panel to answer the question directly,” he said. She refused and the segment cut to commercial. (The Grio)
Lawyers say JetBlue flight attendant May Have Not Known About $3 Million Of Cocaine
Marsha Gay Reynolds, a former Jamaican beauty queen and track star, may have fled the scene and later turned herself in for drug smuggling, but her lawyer’s spokesperson says there’s more to the story.
“She may not have been fully aware of what was in the bags,” said Allan Jennings, representing her family and her defense lawyer. But Assistant U.S. Attorney Alicia Washington confirmed that “this wasn’t the only time” Reynolds has brought in drugs.
Reynolds’ bail has been set at $500,000. A judge “warned her parents and two friends from her church they could lose their homes if she flees” and “he gave prosecutors a day to appeal before Reynolds can be freed,” The AP noted. (The Associated Press)
Study-Coffee Linked to Miscarriages
That morning cup of Joe you drank before you got pregnant may increase your risk of miscarriage, says a new study. Researchers found that couple’s risk of miscarriage may rise when the woman or man consumes more than two caffeinated drinks a day in the weeks leading up to conception, Health Day News reported. They also found that mothers-to-be who drank coffee during their first 7 weeks of pregnancy also had a higher risk of miscarriage, but admit that they don’t know for sure why caffeine and miscarriages are linked.
This same study also found that women who took a daily multivitamin before conception and through early pregnancy were less likely to miscarry than women who did not. (HealthDay News)
