‘The Room’ And Greg Sestero Returning To Owensboro August 6th [VIDEO]

I know, I know, Miranda is newly single, but she didn't bounce back that fast. I got a tip 'The Disaster Artist' author/actor Greg Sestero runs away with Lambert at the end of her "White Liar" video.

My Open Letter To Fancy Water Park Moms

While on vacation last week, my Mom, sister and I took five kiddos to Venture River Water Park in Eddyville. It was the perfect day... Party-cloudy, mid 80's and just the right amount of people. After the first round of water slides, we took in the lazy river for some much needed down time. It was there in that inner-tube that I saw something puzzling to me... A woman who looked flawless. She looked like she was straight out of a JC Penny's swim catalog. Wait. Why didn't she look like a drowned rat like we all did? Then it hit me... She so fancy. So, to that Mom, here's a letter.

When Chad Met Little Ava: A Horror Story [Video]

Apparently, certain children are terrified of me.  Most kids like me because, let's face it, I am basically a 10-year-old trapped inside the body of a 43-year-old man who looks a little bit like Curious George. However, there are few children out there who react to me like I react to clowns.  Case in point, Ava.  Ava is the daughter of Ashley Sollars, the Digital Managing Editor for WBKR.com.  Ava visited the office the other day and literally hit the deck in the hallway as soon as she saw me.  Not kidding.  Picture it.  I smiled and said, "Hi, Ava!"  Ava hit the floor, assumed a tornado-safe position and cowered against the wall until I was gone.  Naturally, I continued to torment the child and she wasn't having it.  WATCH!
