Hurricane Sandy Blows Jersey Shore Co.'s Sign All the way to France!!

6/1/2018 10:52 AM PDT

This story will blow your mind.

There's a real estate company on the Jersey Shore claiming its company has gone global after -- get this -- one of its signs washed up in France SIX YEARS after Hurricane Sandy blew it into the Atlantic Ocean.

Crazy, right?

The folks over at Diane Turton, Realtors in Point Pleasant, NJ posted on Facebook that a man named Hannes Frank stumbled upon the sign on the shores of France a couple weeks ago. The company confirmed the sign is theirs and say it was from a waterfront listing back in 2012.

But, then came Hurricane Sandy. The house survived but the sign was ripped apart ... ultimately landing in the ocean and floating across more than 3,500 miles.

The company had a good laugh about it, saying, "Having our signage wash up in France on the beach truly proves that Diane Turton, Realtors is a global real estate company."

Impressionnant!

Breaking News

Prince George was the target of a terrorist, and the man who encouraged ISIS to carry out a plot at the boy's school has just confessed.

32-year-old Husnain Rashid had maintained his innocence since his arrest last November, but in a court hearing he now admits he carried out a number of terroristic acts and engaged in preparation for other attacks.

Rashid posted a pic of Prince George -- 3rd in line to the throne -- next to a silhouette of a jihadi fighter. He posted the address of George's school and wrote, "even the royal family will not be left alone."

He'll be sentenced June 28.

This is not the first time the little Royal's school has been the center of suspicious activity. Right after George started primary school last Sept, a woman was arrested allegedly trying to break into the school.

Breaking News

Nikolas Cruz recorded a chilling video of himself meticulously plotting how he was about to carry out a deadly attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The Broward State Attorney's Office released the video Wednesday as prosecutors prepare to possibly ask for a death penalty trial. In one of the videos, Cruz looks into his cell phone and says, "With the power of my AR you will all know who I am." Prosecutors would not say when exactly the videos were made, though Cruz suggests in one video he was going to carry out the mass shooting later that day.

Cruz killed 17 people on February 14 ... a deadly outcome that triggered massive nationwide protests for better gun control spearheaded by the Parkland kids. 

In another video, Cruz said his goal was to kill at least 20 people and said, "You're all going to die. Can't wait." Cruz faces 17 counts of first-degree murder and 17 counts of attempted first-degree murder. 

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Chokes Back Tears ... Kid Reporter Grills Her on School Shootings

5/30/2018 12:39 PM PDT

Sarah Huckabee Sanders finally cracked ... she got very emotional when an intrepid young (very young) reporter asked what the Trump administration was doing to prevent school shootings.

The school kid, Benje Choucroun, was reporting for "TIME for Kids" at Wednesday's White House Press briefing -- and fired off a solid question about the very real fears of children across America. Sanders, who normally remains stone-faced through all manner of crises, actually broke down ... her voice quivering as she responded. 

Sanders does have 3 children, so seems the 13-year-old reporter's question really hit home.

5/30/2018 1:21 PM PDT

Kendrick Lamar is the toast of a Pulitzer Prize event where some of the most influential people in the world are pressing to rub elbows with him.

The pride of Compton was at Pulitzer luncheon Wednesday at Columbia University. He's being honored in the music category, and Mia Farrow couldn't wait to get a snapshot with him. Mia's son, Ronan, is getting Pulitzer's public service award for blowing the lid off Harvey Weinstein's history of sexual misconduct.

Kendrick's arrival was so highly anticipated, the Pulitzer's administrator welcomed him before he even walked into the building.

Kung Fu Kenny winning the music category was unprecedented. He's the first non-classical or jazz artist to win the prize since they started awarding them for music in 1943.

So, makes sense everyone wants a piece.

5/30/2018 10:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

NOFX crossed the line in a big way Sunday in Vegas, when they made a crack about the Vegas shooting, saying the silver lining was that the people killed were country fans and not punk fans.

The band was playing the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival, and when they finished a song frontman Fat Mike said, "We played a song about Muslims and we didn't get shot. Hooray."

But, it didn't end there ... another band member jumped in and said, "I guess you only get shot in Vegas if you are in a country band."

And it got even worse ... "That [the massacre] sucked, but at least they were country fans and no punk rock fans."

Some audience members audibly recoiled, but the singer then jumped in, "You were all thinking it."

58 people were killed and almost 500 were injured in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Breaking News

The woman Roseanne Barr called a baby born out of the Muslim brotherhood and 'Planet of the Apes' says she can deal with the racism -- but worries about those facing similar attacks out of the spotlight.

Barack Obama's former adviser, Valerie Jarrett, spoke on MSNBC Tuesday following Roseanne's racist comment, saying she's "fine" ... but adding she's concerned about those who don't have such a public support system coming to their defense.

She says she wants this to be a teaching moment, but notes that there are daily examples of racism black people experience that don't get the attention she's getting now.

BTW ... Valerie also calls out President Trump for setting the tone that she believes Roseanne followed and executed. Speaking of "Roseanne" ... she's all the way canceled.

She also says she got a call from Disney CEO Bob Iger, who apologized and said his company has a "zero tolerance" for such hateful comments.

Dean Cain Goes to Bat for James Caan ... Defends Morgan Freeman

EXCLUSIVE

Dean Cain seems to agree with his friend James Caan that the world's a strange place right now regarding how men and women interact ... and also shares his support of Morgan Freeman.

We got the former Superman actor out at the National Mall in D.C. on Memorial Day and asked about Caan's comments to us last week ... Dean tells us he sees where James is coming from, and dismisses a video tape many feel shows Freeman acting inappropriately to a reporter as "ridiculous."

Cain goes on to explain hitting on the opposite sex is fine if it doesn't go too far -- and he's seen that happen on both sides -- but the current culture's not going to stop him from talking to a beautiful woman.

He also says not to turn your back on Freeman simply based on allegations ... because he hasn't been convicted of anything yet.

The 22-year-old undocumented immigrant who risked his life to save a young child in Paris is not only a national hero ... he's about to become an official French citizen.

Mamoudou Gassama became a worldwide sensation this weekend after climbing 4 stories in seconds to rescue a 4-year-old boy who was hanging on to a balcony railing for dear life. The video's incredible.

Gassama's heroics saved the child, and now the Malian migrant's been cast into the national spotlight after a meeting with President Emmanuel Macron ... in which he was presented with a certificate and a gold medal for performing an act of courage and dedication.

Mamoudou will also be granted citizenship and has been offered a job with the Paris fire brigade.

According to reports, the young hero was in the area to watch a football match when he noticed the commotion and sprung into action. He said ... "I like children, I would have hated to see him getting hurt in front of me. I ran and I looked for solutions to save him and thank God I scaled the front of the building to the balcony."

The boy's father was reportedly detained for alleged neglect, and the child has been placed in special care.

Chelsea Manning Posts 'Suicide' Photo

5/28/2018 6:20 AM PDT

Chelsea Manning is physically ok, after posting an image of someone standing on a ledge ... appearing to be on the verge of jumping to her death.

She quickly deleted the post, which was captioned, "I'm sorry." Someone posted on her account early Monday morning, "Chelsea is safe,"  adding ... "She is on the phone with friends, thanks everyone for your concern and please give her some space."

Manning has had her struggles for years. As you know, she's the whistleblower who went to prison in 2013 for giving government files to Wikileaks. President Obama commuted her sentence.

There was no further elaboration on what appears to be a suicide photo. It is also unclear if the person shown in the photo is Chelsea.

'Evil Genius' Director The Case Should Not Be Closed ... Especially for One Guy!!!

5/26/2018 1:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Trey Borzillieri -- one of the directors of Netflix's hit documentary 'Evil Genius' -- believes investigators need to take another look at the notorious case ... because the show exposed some major lies.

If you aren't familiar ... 'Evil Genius' is about a diabolical bank heist in 2003 that goes awry and leads to the murder of Brian Wells. Despite convictions of a few criminals related to the crime, Trey thinks total justice has still not been served ... specifically to Floyd Stockton.

Trey tells us Stockton's immunity in the case was based on him telling the truth, but the director believes that's not the case ... so his immunity should be void and he shouldn't get a pass for his involvement.

Borzillieri also believes the shocking twist at the end of the doc -- a confession from former prostitute Jessica Hoopsick -- is totally legit ... and answers one of the main mysteries of 'Evil Genius.'

Morgan Freeman Misplaced Humor, Not Sexual Assault Alleged Victim Calls Out CNN

5/26/2018 6:45 AM PDT

Morgan Freeman has issued a second statement, responding to allegations he sexually harassed a number of women, this time saying the incidents were "misplaced compliments or humor" and not sexual assault ... and now one of the women is calling out CNN for unfairly suggesting she's a victim.

Freeman says, "I am devastated that 80 years of my life is at risk of being undermined, in the blink of an eye." He goes on ... "It is not right to equate horrific incidents of sexual assault with misplaced compliments or humor."

Freeman does apologize, saying he will "continue to apologize to anyone I might have upset, however unintentionally."

A woman mentioned in the CNN story -- Tyra Martin, reached out to TMZ and said, "Hey, still getting a lot of nasty messages from people who think I AM one of the accusers. I'm not, never was. CNN totally misrepresented the video and took my remarks out of context." The incident involved an interview Martin did with Freeman, where she recounted, "When I stood up, I pulled my skirt part of my dress down and he did say, 'Oh, don't pull it down now.'"
