A man knocks on Heather McDonald’s hotel door claiming to be from housekeeping. Here’s why she didn’t open the door.

“So I want to tell you guys this story because it happened to me and I was thinking about it and the only reason I knew what to do what is because I’ve seen people talk about this on TikTok,” she said into the camera as she filmed.

The Juicy Scoop podcast host explained that she was doing some shows in Dallas, Texas, and was staying at a Westin Hotel near the airport. Panning her phone over to the window, she said, “As you can see, there’s a Dennys and stuff. It’s decent. But it’s very close to the airport.”

Moving along, Heather explained that, after she checked into the hotel, she got lunch, and returned to her room around 2:30 p.m. Shortly after, there was a knock on the door.

Right off the bat, she knew it probably wasn’t her assistant as the knock didn’t sound familiar. “And I’m like ‘hello’ and this guy … I can’t hear what he’s saying, but he’s saying something,” Heather said. “And I immediately double lock the door.”

The man tells Heather he is from housekeeping and claims that he had gotten a call about her room.

However, she stayed behind her locked door and explained that she hadn’t called for anything. The man behind the door continued to badger her.

“Then I looked through the peephole. And it was a guy who did not look like he was dressed in a housekeeping outfit. He did not have a cart with little shampoos or anything like he was ready to do housekeeping,” she said in her video.

Eventually, he left. But the experience still shook Heather.

Trusting her instinct, she called the lobby and told them what had happened. She didn’t want to jump to conclusions since she didn’t actually have any evidence to present against this man, but she wanted to make the hotel aware.

“Again, you never know. Better safe than sorry, especially when you’re a woman traveling alone. Don’t open the door for anyone. And look through the peephole,” Heather said at the end of her video. She also noted that even if you did order something from housekeeping, you could always ask the person delivering to leave it at the door.

In the comment section, many users felt uncomfortable with the situation. “All hotels should at least make you swipe your room key to go up in the elevator,” wrote one woman.

Other women who had experience traveling solo offered tips on how to disguise the fact that you’re alone, like pretending to say goodbye to someone as you leave the room so it doesn’t seem like you’re alone.

One user also encouraged Heather to change hotels since she had revealed her location. However, judging from a follow-up video from her account, it seems Heather stayed put.

In the clip above, Heather appeared to have just gotten back from a show later that day. Judging from her mannerisms, one could assume that she may have had a few drinks.

While Heather didn’t offer an update on what happened with the alleged male housekeeper from earlier, she did share another incident at the hotel that rubbed her the wrong way.

You see, Heather had misplaced her room key and the front desk told her it would take 35 minutes to replace it.

Now, as she waits for it, she is with her friend and fellow comedian Justin Martindale inside his room. Heather jokes that the wait is so long that she might have sex with Justin, who is openly gay.

However, her fans in the comments weren’t laughing along. Many asked her for more details regarding the strange man from before. One user just wrote: “get out of that hotel.”

Heather has yet to respond to these comments.

Woman Was Almost Abducted While Livestreaming at Post Office

In a now-viral video, a woman named Courtney shares the shocking moment she was almost abducted while livestreaming at a post office.

A TikTok user found herself in a frightening situation. The user thinks she was almost abducted while livestreaming and got all of it on video. Courtney Dye (@courtkneee2point0) was livestreaming while at a U.S. post office in August when the terrifying ordeal took place.

In the livestream, which has since been posted in full, Courtney is handling her mail while inside the post office in Broken Arrow, Okla. The clip begins innocently as Courtney is examining her packages before shipping them. Here’s what went down.

Woman thinks she was almost abducted and got it all on video.

Although the video starts off normal, it quickly takes a shocking turn. A woman enters from outside the frame and explains that she was lost and looking for help. “I’m lost but I don’t speak English very good,” the unidentified woman says. “I don’t know where I can go.”

Courtney attempts to give directions but the woman suggests that she was unsure how to get to her destination from the post office. Courtney then offers to take the woman home and then the encounter gets weird.

The video cuts to Courtney having a conversation with the woman and suggests that the woman contact a highway patrol officer to help her find her way home. Courtney continues to ask the woman where she was coming from but wasn’t able to get additional information. The woman simply repeated “I’m lost.”

A police officer then entered the building, but it isn’t clear who contacted the authorities. After Courtney recorded the livestream, her followers immediately requested a follow-up video.

Courtney was unharmed in the potential abduction.

After Courtney posted the video of what she believes was an abduction attempt, her 16,000 TikTok followers demanded she provide an update on her wellbeing. “Please share a part two. The more awareness the better,” one person wrote. While others were thankful that Courtney was livestreaming the incident.

In the second half of the livestream, which Courtney posted later, the responding police officer escorts the woman out of the post office. It isn’t clear whether the woman was truly lost, but the officer was presumably able to help her get to her destination.

Courtney then explained that she went to the post office after dark to ship out packages for her customers. However, Courtney decided not to finish the task and left the post office out of fear that she was being watched.

Other attempted abductions have been caught on camera.

Courtney had every right to weary of the lone woman in the post office, as kidnapping attempts have been captured on video in abundance. In January a video showing an man attempting to pull a barista through a Starbucks drive-thru window went viral. The video, shared by the Auburn Police Department, shows a man in a pickup truck grabbing an employee and attempting to place zip ties on her wrists.

The man was later identified as Matthew Darnell, after he was arrested thanks to tips from viewers, according to Fox 13. Matthew was charged with attempted kidnapping in the second degree with a finding of sexual motivation. He was also charged with assault in the first degree.

Hobby Lobby Papier Mache Pumpkin Exposed Sensitive Documents

Published

on

A woman’s dog chewed up her Hobby Lobby papier mache pumpkin decoration and inside, she found sensitive documents used to make it.

In what one person is describing as a Hobby Lobby “kinder egg,” one woman shared her surprise discovery in a TikTok after her dog chewed through a papier mache pumpkin decoration. Clara (@cgillum8) shared in a video that after she came home from work to find her pumpkin broken with the insides exposed, she found something totally unexpected.

Clara shows what’s left of the pumpkin and explains that the inside of it looks like sensitive documents that have no place inside a decoration from a craft store. It appears that wherever this particular Hobby Lobby decor item was manufactured was done so using paper that probably should have been destroyed. And now everyone wants a Hobby Lobby pumpkin of their own.

A woman’s papier mache pumpkin from Hobby Lobby was made using sensitive documents.

Let’s not make this into a whole thing, OK? As in, let’s not make a Hobby Lobby pumpkin challenge on TikTok, because if you’re anything like me, you already have way too much Halloween and fall decor in your home right now anyway.

But it’s certainly hard not to want to seek out one of these papier mache pumpkins yourself to see if all of them are made in this way. What other paper documents did Hobby Lobby use?

Article continues below advertisement

“I have a trial balance from a special education fund in here and their debt is over $3 million,” Clara says in her video, as she reads off the documents inside of her papier mache pumpkin. “I have account numbers inside of it. Um, I don’t feel like I should have this information. Like, Hobby Lobby, what are you doing here?”

One comment under the video suggests that a paper shredding company is actually selling pallets of documents to craft stores like Hobby Lobby. And if that’s the case, then that’s a whole other issue on top of sensitive documents being used to create random decor items.

Now, people want to get their hands on a Hobby Lobby pumpkin themselves.

While most of those who commented on Clara’s video are simply shook that she found something so random inside of her papier mache pumpkin, others want pumpkins now too so they can see if there are other documents inside of those.

“Is this an ad for Hobby Lobby? Because now I want one of those pumpkins,” one TikTok user commented. And, I mean, I get it.

“I’m about to go buy a papier mache pumpkin from Hobby Lobby just to see what I get,” another user commented.

In a way, this is recycling at its finest, but something tells me Hobby Lobby could have found a better source of material than something that no one other than the documents’ original owners should probably ever see.

But Hobby Lobby may not be the first company to recycle something and use it inside another product. Another person who commented under the video claimed that they once found part of a Lucky Charms box inside a Yahtzee dice cup. Though to be fair, it’s not exactly the same thing.

All I’m going to say is that if you are really that pressed to get a papier mache pumpkin of your own, you may want to act fast. Because something tells me these are about to fly off the shelves, either from customers, or employees under direction to do so.

Published

‘Teen Mom: The Next Chapter’ star Leah Messer has been at the center of plenty of speculation. Fans want to know if she has had plastic surgery.

The Gist:

  • Leah Messer appeared on Teen Mom 2 and Teen Mom: The Next Chapter.
  • There have been rumors that she has had plastic surgery — specifically a boob job.
  • Leah addressed the rumors in a Twitter post and said that she hasn’t had any plastic surgery.

When you live your life in the public eye, you quickly become accustomed to people constantly wanting to know more about your personal life (as annoying as that may be). For the stars of Teen Mom 2 (and other reality shows), things are taken to a whole new level and speculation seems to be pretty much constant. Fans are always wondering whether the moms are pregnant again, dating someone new, or getting married or divorced.

As one of the moms who has shared her life for years on Teen Mom 2 and Teen Mom: The Next Chapter, Leah Messer has also been at the center of plenty of speculation. Recently, people have been wondering whether or not the mom of three has ever had plastic surgery. Here’s what we know.

Did Leah Messer have plastic surgery? Fans think she may have gotten a boob job.

First of all, we should start with the obvious. When Leah first started sharing her personal life with TV audiences, she was a young teen. So, it would be bonkers to assume that her body and face wouldn’t look different now that she’s in her late 20s.

Of course, that hasn’t kept people from wondering whether some of the changes in her appearance could have been due to plastic surgery. And it’s not like they’re just wondering to themselves. They’re wondering out loud. On social media. For all to see. Apparently, Leah got wind of the rumors, as she decided to address them in a Twitter post.

“I have not had surgery peoplesss,” she wrote in a tweet published on Oct. 5, 2020. “However, I have most definitely done a 180 on how I choose to diet and live my life. And I feel like it finally shows! My extensions are out, and I lightened up on the eye makeup too.”

While Leah denies getting major plastic surgery (like the rumored boob job), she followed up with another tweet saying that she isn’t opposed to non-invasive cosmetic treatments like Botox. “Not saying that I’m not all about some fresh botox either,” she said. “Girl. Be. YoU! Do You! When is the next Botox party? I’m coming!”

Obviously, if Leah had elected to undergo major plastic surgery, that would really only be relevant information to her and her doctors. And it wouldn’t be difficult to understand why, either — spending nearly half of your life on television probably isn’t the greatest thing ever for some people’s self-esteem, particularly when fans seem to feel entitled to know literally everything about your off-screen life.

Anyone who has kids knows it’s hard enough trying to raise them without people constantly spreading rumors about your own appearance and behavior. Our hats are off to all of the Teen Mom stars who are able to rise above the constant rumors and just keep on being themselves. It seems like Leah has simply made some lifestyle changes that she’s really happy about, and we’re super happy for her!

You can catch up with Leah and the other no-longer-teen moms on Teen Mom: The Next Chapter. The show airs new episodes on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on MTV.
