We’re just going to cut to the chase here because it’s just too good: Jen Shah of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City and Elizabeth Holmes from Theranos (aka Amanda Seyfried in The Dropout) are at the same prison and are friends. This was definitely not on our bingo card for 2023.

As a reminder, Jen pleaded guilty to fraud in a telemarketing scheme and was sentenced to 6.5 years in prison that began on Feb. 17, 2023. Elizabeth was convicted for defrauding investors and was sentenced to over 11 years in prison. Her sentence began on May 30, 2023.

And the reality tv gods above were looking out for us when Jen and Elizabeth were assigned the same prison. Did Andy Cohen have a hand in this? Only kind of kidding.

Both Jen and Elizabeth were assigned to the Federal Prison Camp in Bryan, Texas, and People got the exclusive that the pair have become friends.

Chris Giovanni, a rep for Jen, said, “Their situations brought them together, and they have a good understanding of one another. They’re getting through it together.”

Chris also said, “Jen’s given her a lot of advice. She’s even met Elizabeth’s baby and held her.” Elizabeth attends the the fitness class that Jen teaches named perfectly named “Sha-mazing Abs” where Jen, “gets all the ladies together and they rally behind her while she teaches them fitness moves, and Elizabeth has been there right along with them.”

In addition to teaching fitness classes, Jen is also tutoring some of the inmates who are hoping to get their GEDs.

People had previously reported that all of the inmates hold jobs that pay “between $0.23 and $1.15 for their work.” The prison also provides “opportunities to participate in wellness programs, religious services, and recreation activities.”

Chris added that Jen has “changed a lot behind bars.” She has passed her anger management classes and has become a more “grounded” person. “Jen’s not anything like the show portrayed her to be. She’s so peaceful now,” Chris explained.

Jen also is supposedly “reunion ready.” It must be all those fitness classes she’s teaching. Well that or the prison diet. Jen had written in a Journal entry from prison posted on her Instagram that her breakfast “had one piece of wheat bread, an apple, two packets of jelly, and a packet of instant oatmeal.”

We are so glad to hear that both Jen and Elizabeth are making the best of their situations and that they have each other to lean on. Hopefully Jen and Elizabeth also reflect on all the wrongs that they have done as well so that they continue to learn and grow from the experience.

A TikToker recalled a strange interaction with a restaurant customer, where the guest asks the host and waitress for $50 to cover his dinner bill.

On TikTok, user @sassyserver0529, whose real name is Steph Carlisle, uses the platform to share horror stories from her time working in the restaurant industry. Needless to say, her tales are very bizarre.

In a TikTok video posted on Sept. 24, 2023, Steph recalled a time when a guest asked the host and the waitress for $50 to cover their bill. The interaction with the customer named Mr. Williams started innocently enough. Here’s what went down.

A customer asked a host and waitress to spot him $50 if needed to cover his bill.

The customer, Mr. Williams, entered and the restaurant the host approached him like normal. The host asked the man if he would be dining as a party of two, but the man suggested he was meeting another couple for dinner at the restaurant. “We’re meeting another couple here and I fully intend on them paying the tab tonight. But should they not, can you spot me $50?” the customer asked. Adding, “I’m dead serious. Money has been really tight lately. Can you spot me the $50 just in case?”

An hour into the meal, Mr. Williams asked the host a second time to borrow $50 but she denied his request. “I do not have $50 I can spot you,” the host said. “If money has been tight then please don’t dine out.” Mr. Williams then said he would ask the waitress to lend him the money, but the meal was later paid for by the other couple. The ordeal has gotten TikTokers up in arms, as most are siding with the restaurant workers who refused to let Mr. Williams borrow $50.

The internet agrees that Mr. Williams should pay his own bill.

Most of the internet seems to agree that Mr. Williams should be responsible for his own restaurant bill. The video has garnered more than 10,000 views, as TikTokers are shocked that Mr. Williams would ask employees at the restaurant he was eating at for $50.

And while Mr. Williams was a regular at the establishment, others pointed out that he appeared to be overly comfortable with the staff at the restaurant.

Meanwhile, others made their point very clear, suggesting that Mr. Williams should avoid dining at restaurants if he can’t pay the bill. Steph even replied to a commenter and explained that Mr. Williams’s request was “the most outlandish thing anyone has ever asked.”

And of course, there was one person who wanted to know why Steph didn’t lend Mr. Williams $50. Asking, “So why didn’t ya?” Really? What would this person do if they were put in the same situation?

Other servers have gotten even stranger requests from customers.

Steph isn’t the first restaurant employee to receive a strange request from a customer. In June, TikToker Mitchell Todd (who goes by @mitchii.moo on the platform) recalled a weird encounter with a customer. The incident occurred during a brunch shift at the restaurant where Mitchell works. The customer, who Mitchell said was “extremely attractive,” was polite at first. Mitchel admits to being flirty with the customer during their interaction, which may have prompted the strange request.

“He’s like ‘I have a weird request. I was wondering if you could spit in my food?’” the man asked. Mitchell denied the man’s request and explained that it was against company policy to spit on someone’s food. Mitchell suggested that the man ask the restaurant manager if the spitting would be OK, and the manager obliged.

A Carnival Cruise Blackout Confuses and Concerns Guests

Published

on

A woman describes being on a Carnival cruise during an unexpected and unexplained blackout and there may be a good reason for this.

If you ever needed another reason not to take a vacation on a cruise, then one woman’s TikTok about a blackout in the middle of the ocean may do it for you. A user by the name of @nieceeb41 shared a video in which she says she and her travel companions “experienced a blackout” with no warning and no information on what was happening in the moment.

I am in the camp of preferring my vacations on land, where I have the ability to leave if there is an emergency. So, to hear of a Carnival Horizon cruise stopping in the middle of the ocean and cutting all power is a literal nightmare. In her video, the TikTok user doesn’t explain why the cruise blackout happened, but she does give a firsthand account of what it was like.

A Carnival cruise’s blackout caused panic among the guests.

In her video, the creator explains that she and the other guests aboard a Carnival Horizon cruise, which had set sail for Aruba, were covered in almost complete darkness. She says that low emergency lights were turned on in the hallways, but that, without warning from a captain or any staff, the power cut off and she and other guests aboard the ship had no clue what happened. Again I say, literal nightmare.

“Tonight, just a few seconds ago, we experienced a blackout, a complete blackout,” she says in the TikTok. “And guess what? Nobody was explaining anything, we got no announcement, no nothing. People in the hallway [were] confused, they had emergency lights on at the bottom [of the hallway walls]… Nobody knows nothing. What is going on, Carnival?”

If this were a standard power outage, apparently the actual danger is minimal. Cruise ships, including those owned by Carnival, are equipped with high-powered generators. They can turn power back on for lighting, get elevators back up and running, keep communication lines open, and even power the engines.

But, because the TikToker doesn’t explain why the blackout happened on the Carnival cruise in the video or any videos after it, we don’t have any answers as to what happened or how things progressed once the staff inevitably informed the guests what was going on. Luckily, other people who have been on cruises or even worked on them have some ideas about why there was an unexplained blackout on the ship.

Cruises are often in danger of pirates on the open ocean.

Most of the comments under the TikTok video claim that the cruise ship likely went dark and, therefore, silent in the middle of the ocean because of pirates. If a smaller ship was spotted nearby, it would make sense for the ship to cut power at night and turn off the sounds that pirates could detect.

“If they announced [a blackout], the pirates would hear them,” one user commented. “Keep an open mind. Most ships don’t just have a blackout.”

Another person agreed, “Sounds like they saw pirates out there… They are indeed out there and the ships have protocols for them.”

While some of the comments explain that “pirates are real,” others show that people who prefer not to go on cruises are happily justified in their decisions. And with no answers about the blackout and the danger of pirates on the ocean, you can have your cruises.

There is something to be said about people being attracted to a person’s sense of humor. Whenever people list off what they’d like in a life partner, many times a “sense of humor” or “funny” is at the top of the list for most desired qualities.

That’s why it makes so much sense that famous comedians have dated some of the most beautiful Hollywood actors and models. Funny guy David Spade is no exception to that. David was one of the most well-known comedians in the 1990s after he first appeared on Saturday Night Live. David’s successful and lengthy career has helped him to earn a net worth estimated at $40 million, but does he have a wife to share his fortune with? Has David ever been married?

David Spade has never been married, but he has dated quite a few ladies.

According to Ranker, David has dated an impressive 20 women but has never tied the knot with any of them. The comedian once admitted that it’s very hard for him to settle down, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t thought about it or actually tried.

He told The New York Times, “It’s very hard for me, for various reasons, which we won’t get into. Too much data, too many gigabytes. But I have been trying to do that. I’ve known someone for a long time. I’ve been trying to make something work.”

David Spade’s list of ex-girlfriends is long and blonde.

David has dated numerous actors and celebrities, including Heather Locklear, Lara Flynn Boyle, Julie Bowen, Teri Hatcher, and Naya Rivera, just to name a few. E! News actually called him “a bachelor-era George Clooney of the comedy world” after photos of David and Naya cuddling in a swimming pool went viral. His friends concur that he has got a way with women.

Howard Stern, on his radio show while discussing the dating reports, said that David was simply that charming of a guy, one who’s always had success with the ladies.

In 2016, David was seen out with Baywatch‘s Charlotte McKinney. Their outing caused a lot of speculation and rumors, but nothing was confirmed. A few years later, during the COVID-19 pandemic, he admitted that he was still single.

That being said, David had another daring confession. “I’m dating someone now,” he told Page Six. Unfortunately, he didn’t really give any additional details, so fans are still left in the dark about if its that serious and who the mystery person is.

David Spade has a daughter with a Playboy bunny.

David shares custody of his daughter with her mother, a former Playboy bunny named Jillian Grace. The two broke up shortly after Harper was born. She was born in 2008.

David spilled his true feelings about fatherhood in his tell-all book.

David explained more about his dad and wrote, “This one’s going to be a little tricky — this is a chapter about my dad, and the way that it fits into this audiobook is I’m a dad now. And the difference – and why it caused some complications with my own dad — is because he was sort of a ne’er-do-well, which is putting it mildly. I think f–k up is more on the nose.”

He continued, “So when I had [Harper], I got this new tidal wave of resentment towards my dad because of his irresponsible behavior and manipulative mean streak. So I stopped talking to him.”

It’s still a mystery as to if David will settle down with anyone, but he remains a dedicated father and one of the best comedians in his craft. Fans will just have to wait and see.
