Outlander: Why You Shouldn’t Dwell on Jamie’s Latest Love Scene

The hardcore Jamie-Claire shippers were in for a bit of a shock on Sunday’s Outlander when both members of the heart-stopping couple hooked up with someone else. Claire’s situation is easy to understand; she thinks Jamie dies at the Battle of Culloden and she’s just trying to put some semblance of a life back together for herself and her baby, Brianna. Frank is her first husband, after all, so it’s no surprise she’d try to reconnect with him.

What may have been a surprise for nonbook readers, however, is Jamie being intimate with a woman in the cave where he is hiding outside Lallybroch. But never fear, Jamie-Claire fans! Jamie’s dalliance is straight out of the books, and it doesn’t mean anything to him romantically.

The woman who comes to Jamie in the cave is Mary McNab, played here by Doctor Who alum Emma Campbell-Jones. In the books, Mary is married to Ronald MacNab, an abusive, violent drunk who beats her and their son, Rabbie. Ronald’s mother knows what her son is and asks Jamie to take in Rabbie, her grandson, as a stableboy at Lallybroch, to get him away from his abusive father.

When Ronald refuses, Jamie beats him up until he agrees to let Rabbie come to Lallybroch. It is then later revealed that Ronald becomes so mad at Jamie that he betrays him to the Watch, which is why Jamie is taken to Wentworth Prison. Murtagh later implies that Ronald is killed in a fire as retaliation for betraying Jamie, though he doesn’t admit it outright.

Either way, once Ronald is gone, Mary and Rabbie become permanent residents at Lallybroch, including living there during the time when Jamie hides in the cave. The night before he is going to turn himself in to the English, Mary comes to him (just like on the show) and offers her body to him as a way to keep himself whole.

The TV series handles it much the same way as Voyager. Jamie does not want to lie with another woman, even though Claire has been gone now for seven years. But Mary tells him, «I saw your lady and how it was between the two of you. It’s not in my mind to make you feel you betrayed that. What I want is to share something different, something less mayhap, but something we both need. Something to keep us whole as we move forward in this life.»

It’s really a sweet gesture on her part, not one meant to besmirch the memory of Claire, which is why Jamie takes Mary up on her offer before being carted off to prison. Don’t worry — Mary isn’t about to become a love interest for Jamie. It’s just about two people needing a little human connection.

What Are the Invictus Games? Here’s What You Need to Know About Prince Harry’s Annual Event

The third annual Invictus Games officially kick off in Toronto, Canada, on Sept. 23, but before we go any further, you might be wondering what the Invictus Games are all about. After serving in Afghanistan, Prince Harry was introduced to the Warrior Games during a trip to the US in 2013. He made it his mission to create an event similar to it that used sports to help aid the physical, psychological, and social recovery of active-duty soldiers and veterans, and as a result, Harry launched the seven-day sporting event in September 2014. The title comes from the Latin word «invictus,» meaning unconquered or undefeated, and the competition features more than 550 competitors from 17 nations and a dozen sports, including archery, cycling, golf, indoor rowing, and wheelchair basketball. Harry has already announced that the fourth Invictus Games will take place in Sydney, Australia, in October 2018.

To make matters even more exciting, Harry’s girlfriend, Meghan Markle, is rumored to attend the Games, which happen to be where Meghan and Harry first met. If Meghan does show up, the philanthropic event will mark the couple’s first public appearance since they first got together in 2016. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Scat Fetishists Have Found Their Dream Girl In Colorado Springs

madpoopercoloradosprings2017

There’s some people whose assholes refuse to spit out a turd unless they are in the privacy of their own bathroom. Then there’s other people whose assholes never get the shies and can easily make a caca anytime, anyplace. One of those kinds of people is now terrorizing a family in Colorado Springs, CO by doing drive-by poopings on their front lawn.  The family is pissed about the pooping, which is weird since the cost of lawn manure is too damn high and they’re getting that shit for free.

KKTV (which doesn’t stand for Kim Kardashian TV even though this is a story about bodily fluids) became an Emmy frontrunner when they first reported about the runner with the runs who has been making regular shit stops on the Budde’s lawn for weeks. Cathy Budde tells KKTV that she first found out about the poopetrator, who has been dubbed The Mad Pooper, when her kids told her that a jogger was taking a dookie on their lawn. Even though PuStain Bolt literally gave a shit on that lawn, she didn’t give a shit about getting caught.

“They are like, ‘There’s a lady taking a poop!’ So I come outside, and I’m like … ‘are you serious? Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids!?’ She’s like, ‘Yeah, sorry!’”

Cathy believes that The Mad Pooper’s ass has been attacking her lawn with caca bombs every week for at least seven weeks. But The Mad Pooper doesn’t only turn Cathy’s lawn into her toilet. Neighbors say they’ve seen her taking a dump at Walgreens and in backyards too. I got the image of The Mad Pooper cleaning her b-hole after shitting by scooting it across Cathy’s lawn Toby-style, but she apparently brings toilet paper with her. I also guessed that maybe The Mad Pooper’s got a new live-in piece and is one of those types who doesn’t like to shit when her piece is home, but Cathy says that there’s a Porta Potty in the park near her house.

Cathy put a sign on her lawn that reads, “Please, I’m Begging You, Please Stop,” but that didn’t work. Cathy finally called the cops, who are now investigating and say that when The Mad Pooper is caught, she could be hit with charges for indecent exposure and public defecation. Sgt. Johnathan Sharketti gave the interview of his career when he said that investigating the biggest shit bomb to hit Colorado Springs since OneRepublic is a first for him.

“It’s abnormal, it’s not something I’ve seen in my career. For someone to repeatedly do such a thing … it’s uncharted territory for me.”

Lt. Howard Black, also of the Colorado Springs Police Department, tells The Washington Post that if it’s a mental health thing, they want to get The Mad Pooper some help.

My brain pooted up a load of question marks over this story. Why is The Mad Pooper doing this? Did Cathy cut in front of her in the bathroom line at Red Robin and this is her way of getting revenge? Also, why haven’t the cops caught her yet? Are there that many white lady joggers who shit on the same lawn every week in Colorado Springs? It can’t be that hard to follow the scent of her trail. And lastly, why is Cathy Budde so damn nice? If a SUCIO scat queen is on your private lawn, making a mess that you have to clean up, it’s perfectly okay for you to turn your garden hose on that trick or sic your dog on them. Cathy really needs an abuelita in her life. It’d be very hard for The Mad Pooper to finish pooping if she’s running from an angry abuelita with a switch.

The Woman In The Kevin Hart Extortion Video Gave A Press Conference

montia-sabbag-press

Kevin Hart has recently found himself in a lot of trouble, which is a bit of an oxymoron for such a tiny guy. After previously laughing off rumors of shady backseat doings with a woman who wasn’t his pregnant wife Eniko Parrish, he apologized and said someone was trying to extort him with videotaped evidence of cheating. There were reportedly three videos; one involved Kevin getting cozy with a woman named Montia Sabbag, and another of Kevin and Montia allegedly having sex.

Montia got a lawyer, the ever-present during a celebrity mess Lisa Bloom, and held a press conference earlier today about this extortion situation with Kevin Hart.

Here is what Montia would like you to know: first off, she admits she was “involved” with Kevin Hart. It was reported that Montia is a traveling strippers, but at the press conference, she said point-blank that she’s not a stripper and she’s not an extortionist, but she is a recording artist and an actress.”Oh, you’re an actress, alright – acting like you’re not guilty of scammer antics!” thought Kevin Hart.

Montia added  that she hasn’t broken any laws, and that she had nothing to do with the recordings. She ends her statement by saying she’s “truly sorry for any involvement that I had in this.

TMZ says that Montia hasn’t been contacted by the police regarding this extortion attempt, but that she’s going to the police immediately (it’s a felony to secretly record someone in private). When Montia first got involved, TMZ says her previous lawyer allegedly told Kevin that she would take a lie detector test to prove her innocence for the low low price of $ 420,000. Lisa Bloom would only say that Montia “is not demanding money” from Kevin Hart.

Kevin has yet to comment on this latest development, although he did post a picture to Instagram that might serve as a subtle message.

Actually, that’s advice that works for Kevin as well. Shut up and run, run to your nearest expensive jewelry store; you’re going to need a giant Kevin Hart-sized rock set in apology-quality platinum to help your pregnant wife forget about all of this.

Here’s Kevin and Eniko making like everything is a-ok while out to lunch yesterday in Woodland Hills CA.

Sabrina The Teenage Witch Could Front ‘Riverdale’ Spinoff

Earlier this year, Riverdale drove us wild with its dark, scandalous and campy re-imagining of Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica. But things are going to get a lot darker as a the show’s creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, is officially developing a spinoff, featuring Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

This new one-hour drama is based on Aguirre-Sacasa’s sensational and sick comic book series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which begins with an infant Sabrina Spellman being ripped out of the arms of her mortal mother, and offered up to a Satan-worshipping coven. When her mother dares to fight back, she’s lobotomized by magic. And that’s just the start of a string of deeply twisted stories featuring fiercely protective aunts, resurrected teens, and one bad bitch called Madam Satan. Having read and reveled over the comics, I anticipate the new Sabrina series will be closer to Hannibal than the Melissa Joan Hart sitcom.

Variety reports:

The series is described as being tonally in the vein of horror classics like «Rosemary’s Baby» and «The Exorcist,» and will see Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family, and the daylight world humans inhabit.

But let’s be clear: this series isn’t a go yet. It’s just in the works. But with the Riverdale creative team—including Aguirre-Sacasa, director Lee Toland Krieger and executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater—on it, we suspect this horror-rich companion to Riverdale will go to series in 2018, and be brilliantly bonkers to boot.

I bet this all means Sabrina will make an appearance in the fast-approaching season two of Riverdale. So start your dream casting now. Tell us in comments who you’d like to see play Sabrina, her aunts Hilda and Zelda, and who would be purrfect to lend their voice to her talking cat Salem.

Kristy Puchko recommends checking out Chilling Adventures of Sabrina ASAP. They’re available on Comixology.
