El Paso, Texas Hit By 5.0 Magnitude Earthquake

Published

on


Roommates, the city of El Paso, Texas needs your prayers after suffering a natural disaster. Earlier today, the city experienced a record 5.0 magnitude earthquake that sent surprised residents panicking and running for cover.

In the early morning hours, a 5.0 magnitude earthquake shook West Texas between the cities of El Paso and Odessa, according the US Geological Survey. The earthquake happened near the line between the Mountain and Central time zones, which was at 9:16 AM in El Paso and 10:16 AM in Odessa.

After the earthquake hit, the staff in the call center for the Texas 2-1-1 24-hour social service hotline, had to be evacuated for the safety of the workers.

A geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey had this to say regarding the earthquake:

“It’s certainly going to be noticeable. It could possibly cause a little bit of damage to unreinforced structures. You might see some cracks in masonry, concrete and brick, that kind of thing. The closer you would’ve been to it might you might have seen things on shelves shaking, maybe even falling off, but it wouldn’t have been much more than that.”

The earthquake shook homes across the Borderland, from El Paso’s Upper Valley to Central all the way to Clint, Texas. In Juárez, residents from the central Melchor Ocampo neighborhood to Las Torres on the city’s southeast side reported feeling the tremors.

We want to send the residents of El Paso our thoughts and prayers.

Leighton Meester Is Pregnant! Revisit Her and Adam Brody’s Romance

Published

on


This is no Gossip (girl), it’s true that Adam Brodyand Leighton Meesterare expecting their second baby together.

In photos obtained by the Daily Mail, the actress was spotted sporting a large baby bump while out and about in Los Angeles, Calif. where she and her husband live. Her and Brody’s reps have not commented nor confirmed the happy news.

Their bundle of joy will join their daughter Arlo Day Brody, who was born in 2015. Fans have not yet met little Arlo as her parents are quite private, but Adam previously said this wasn’t intentional. “She’s more inherently private than I am,” Brody said of Meester. “I don’t seek publicity but if I’m sitting next to you on the subway, I’ll tell you everything about me.”

This explains why people are just now learning of Leighton’s pregnancy, when she appears to be nearing her due date. 

Other than that, Seth says their life isn’t all that different from anybody else’s. He shared, “We’re homebodies. We don’t go to a lot of things that perhaps we could, and don’t seek out promotion in that way.”

When they do go out, however, the couple sure makes a striking impression with their dazzling good looks and good deeds to boot. To see some of these outings, check out the gallery below!

Samuel L. Jackson Reads The Coronavirus Bedtime Story “Stay The F**k Home”

Published

on


Roommates, in case you need your daily reminder, Samuel L. Jackson is the gift that keeps on giving. As the nation continues to shelter in place to stop the spread of the coronavirus so we all can resume our regular lives, Samuel L. Jackson decided to read a modern take on the bedtime story with a message that we all need to hear right now.

As coronavirus cases continue to rise around the country and some estimates declare that over 100,000 Americans will die as a result of the disease when it’s all over—Samuel L. Jackson has a very timely and incredibly hilarious take on getting American citizens to practice social distancing and in his words “stay the f**k at home!”

On a recent episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Samuel L. appeared as a guest from his home theater. After a brief interview, he read from a sequel to the children’s book “Go the Fuck to Sleep”—one designed for the coronavirus age.

He read the book as only he can, saying the following:

“Stay the f**k at home. Corona is spreading, this s**t is no joke. It’s no time to work or roam. The way you can fight it is simple my friends, stay the f**k at home. Now technically I’m not a doctor. But motherf**kers listen when I read a poem. So here I am, Sam F**king Jackson, imploring you: Keep you’re a** at home. If you want things to get back to normal, don’t panic. Just use your dome. Wash your hands, stop touching your face and stay the f**k at home.”

If anyone can get through to stubborn people who refuse to stay at home, it’s definitely Samuel L. Jackson.

Why Did Christopher Meloni Leave Law & Order: SVU?

Published

on


In somewhat surprising but welcome news, Christopher Meloni is bringing Detective Elliot Stabler back to TV! But why did Meloni leave Law & Order: SVU in the first place? As speculation ramps up about the newly announced SVU spinoff that’s set to star Meloni, we’re revisiting why he left the flagship show all those years ago. Det. Stabler was one of the central characters, but as it turned out, this was most likely a case of when creativity and money clashed.

Although it was never officially confirmed, the widely accepted reason for Meloni’s departure in the first place was a salary dispute. His contract, along with that of co-star Mariska Hargitay, expired in 2011, after season twelve, meaning that he and NBC had to renegotiate and come to new terms for him to continue on with the show. As recently as 2010, TV Guide reported that both actors were among the highest-paid on TV, with salaries of approximately $395,000 per episode. During negotiations, however, The Hollywood Reporter suggested (as reported by Today) that Meloni had been offered a new contract of $8 million per year. Although that sounds like (and is) a huge salary, doing the per-episode math over a 26-episode season meant that he would be taking a pay cut to around $300,000 per episode — nearly 25 percent less than he’d been making before! With the two sides unable to come to a final agreement, Meloni instead left the show.

With little room to maneuver, the writers made an unexpected choice when writing off Det. Stabler that nonetheless meant the actor could, theoretically, return at any time. Instead of killing him off or otherwise removing him permanently, Stabler’s final storyline instead ended with him making a shocking, split-second decision. In the season twelve finale — his last episode — a gunfight erupts when a woman opens fire on criminals locked in a cell. When she aims at the detectives, Stabler shoots her to stop her, resulting in her death. When the show returned for season thirteen, it’s revealed that Stabler was first placed on administrative leave following the shooting, and instead of trying to return to work, he decides to retire off-screen.

According to initial reports from Deadline, the spinoff “revolves around the NYPD organized crime unit led by Stabler.” NBC has reportedly already given the show a 13-episode order. The show will still be set in New York and in the existing SVU world, meaning that there’s a possibility for Stabler to cross over to the original SVU or for other characters to cross over to the new show. It’s a reunion a decade in the making, and we can’t wait!
