Bridezilla makes dangerous demand of her maid of honor: ‘I’m going to be stumbling around like a blind idiot’

One bride-to-be apparently doesn’t understand why people wear glasses.

While it’s normal for brides to make requests to their bridesmaids about how they look during the ceremony, this might be taking things too far. According to a very stressed out maid of honor, the bride-to-be not only demanded that she pay for hair extensions, but also demanded that the maid of honor keep her glasses off during the ceremony and reception.

The maid of honor, who said she’s “blind as a bat,” posted her story on Reddit. According to her, after an already stressful engagement, reportedly full of ‘bridal outrage’ moments, the bride-to-be recently came to her with some unusual (and potentially dangerous) requests.

The maid of honor took to Reddit to complain, “I don’t want to ‘ruin’ her wedding by wearing my glasses, but what in the world am I going to do?! I’m going to be stumbling around like a blind idiot.” (iStock, File)

According to the story, “The bride has asked me to add extensions in my hair, as I have a Bob cut (at my own expense of course), and demanded that I do NOT wear my glasses during the event.”

The maid of honor claimed she already had spent a lot of money on her friend’s wedding and her insurance plan wouldn’t cover an extra eye doctor appointment. Since she apparently didn’t have contact lenses already, she had to decide on wearing glasses and upsetting the bride or not being able to see all day. “How am I supposed to fix her train at the altar,” she asked, “and read my speech?”

The story continued, “I don’t want to ‘ruin’ her wedding by wearing my glasses, but what in the world am I going to do?! I’m going to be stumbling around like a blind idiot.”

Unfortunately, when she took her issues to the bride-to-be, the response wasn’t what she was hoping to hear. “When I explained this to her, she quickly pointed out that all of our dresses have pockets,” the post says. “If I need to find the restroom, I can briefly slide them on to see where I’m going but to be sure and remove them, before exiting as a photographer may be in the area taking photos. I really wish I had backed out of this mess the first time the fiancé moved out. But I’m stuck now.”

The comments on Reddit were, not surprisingly, in favor of the maid of honor wearing her glasses.

BRIDE ALLEGEDLY ASKS CANCER-STRICKEN BRIDESMAID TO PAY EXTRA AND WEAR WIG

As one user explained, “This is ridiculous. Tell her you are wearing your glasses, and if you wanted longer hair, you would have it already. She knew what you looked like when she asked you to be in the wedding. Tell her if that is a problem, she will need to find a replacement.”

Another user added, “You are allowed boundaries here. I don’t care if she’s a bride or Queen Elizabeth. What she’s asking isn’t reasonable or normal.”

Others joined in to explain that despite how she felt, she actually wasn’t stuck. “Glasses. But also, sunken cost fallacy,” one user wrote.

“If she’s really that upset about you being able to see (!), I would respectfully bow out. The whole thing sounds like a hot mess but I can’t imagine asking my best friend to put themselves in harm’s way for some photographs. Not wearing them is a hazard and possibly adding heels to that mix sounds like an accident just waiting to happen.”

Another user agreed, posting, “You’re not stuck. You are an adult and can back out at any time. Tell her it’s either your hair as-is and your glasses, or you are out as MOH. She’s being ridiculous, especially for a woman of her age.”

Another user simply posted, “Wear your glasses.”

Woman swallows engagement ring in her sleep: ‘How? I don’t know, but I did!’

Westlake Legal Group eating-engagement-ring Woman swallows engagement ring in her sleep: 'How? I don't know, but I did!' Michael Hollan fox-news/lifestyle/weddings fox-news/food-drink fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc eede6e0e-7cfd-5814-98ac-136c45017415 article

Everyone’s heard the joke about someone dreaming about eating a giant marshmallow and waking up with their pillow missing.

For one woman in San Diego, Calif., however, the reality was much stranger. While she was having a nightmare about being chased, she swallowed her engagement ring. When she woke up, her finger was ring-less and she realized she had a big problem.

Jenna Evans shared her story, and X-ray photos, on Facebook. According to her, she was apparently having a dream where she swallowed her ring to protect it. She shared a photo of her X-ray on Facebook along with the caption, “Welp. I have really outdone myself this time. I swallowed my engagement ring. In my sleep. Yep. How? I don’t know. But I did!”

In another post, she explained the situation in greater detail, writing, “On Wednesday morning, I realized my ring was not on my hand and had to wake Bob Howell up and tell him that I swallowed my engagement ring. I don’t think he believed me right away. We laughed pretty hard for about an hour and a half, called my mom, laughed until we were crying, googled ‘do other adults swallow rings’ because kids do it all the time, but apparently it’s less common for adults.’

BRIDE’S PARENTS ALLEGEDLY DEMAND WEDDING GUEST PAY FOR SON’S MEAL CHOICE

Evans and her fiance went to a nearby urgent care facility, where she was X-rayed. Evans claims that when the doctors returned with the results, they were shocked. She wrote that the doctor showed her the X-ray and, “sure enough, my ring was right there in my stomach! They called a gastroenterologist and decided it would be best not to let nature take its course. (Thank God) Before I left, she recommended seeing a sleep specialist as well.”

This meant that she had to go to another doctor and explain that situation again. “At this point, I could definitely feel it in my guts, it was starting to really hurt and make us nervous. They decided an upper endoscopy was just the thing and said, ‘don’t worry, it’s not a big deal, but please sign this release form just in case you die.’”

According to Evans’ post, the doctors retrieved the ring just fine, but returned it to her fiance and not her. “Bobby finally gave my ring back this morning,” she wrote, “I promised not to swallow it again, we’re still getting married and all is right in the world.”

The Daily Spike: A Canine Companion is born

Today is incredibly bittersweet. It’s my last day working at Fox News Channel in New York City. I’m moving to Berkeley, Calif., to live with my boyfriend, Chris, which is new and exciting. But I will dearly miss all my friends, who have become more like my family in my 20-plus years at Fox News.

A year and a half ago, some of my colleagues encouraged me to write this blog, and the response to it has been amazing. So first, thank you for reading. But it won’t be ending — I will continue to share updates on Spike, so please keep reading.

THE DAILY SPIKE: SPIKE GETS HIS FIRST REPORT CARD

But there’s more: This blog will start to follow a new Canine Companions for Independence service-dog-in-training!

My show’s anchor, Dana Perino, has been incredibly supportive of Spike and Canine Companions for Independence. As a token of their appreciation, Canine Companions gave her the honor of naming a  puppy. Did she pick Jasper? Or Perino? Or W? Or Greg Gutfeld? Nope.

She picked Tyrus, after our favorite Friday guest.

Tyrus is one of Spike’s biggest fans, and has done great work with Canine Companions, raising both awareness and money. Tyrus was there for me at the ceremony on the day Spike and I said goodbye, and I could not have had a better shoulder to cry on.

And puppy Tyrus was born on Wednesday, Sept. 11. He’s a healthy lab puppy weighing about one pound. He also has three brothers and three sisters, and they are all beautiful. The puppies’ mom, Oceana, has been lovingly caring for her pups since delivery.

I will have the honor of raising puppy Tyrus for Canine Companions. Raising Spike in New York City had a lot of challenges: crowds, weather, subways, elevators, loud noises. Raising Tyrus in Berkeley will certainly have its own set of challenges.  But it won’t have 3 a.m. potty runs in the snow.

You’ll be hearing a lot more about puppy Tyrus in the coming days. Stay tuned!

‘Soft ghosting’ is the latest terrible breakup term

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_5732948844001_5732931380001-vs 'Soft ghosting' is the latest terrible breakup term Janine Puhak fox-news/lifestyle/relationships fox-news/lifestyle fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc article 2d0abded-7824-5edf-a899-185ad3d7a817

As if modern dating wasn’t already tricky enough, a confusing new breakup trend is said to be rocking romantics — and their cell phones — in all the wrong ways.

Apparently inspired by the well-known “ghosting” phenomenon, “soft ghosting” is described as slowly breaking off communication with someone by “liking” their text messages, but offering no genuine response or continuation of a conversation. Humor blog Overheard LA was perhaps the first outlet to share the term a few months back, according to the Huffington Post, and commenters have since had a whole lot to say about the rumored fad.

Over the summer, the blog shared a post defining the terrible “soft ghosting” spectacle as when someone “responds” to conversation by “liking” a message, making them the last person to answer the chat. By doing so, this person may be attempting to break off communication altogether, albeit in a less-than-straightforward way.

MAN CLAIMS DISNEY WORLD TRIP WILL BE RUINED BY GIRLFRIEND’S NEWBORN NIECE – AND REDDIT USERS AGREE

However, this play puts the recipient in the awkward position of having to “risk double-texting” if they fire off another message.

“I see this kind of communication all the time with my clients. Today’s communication has changed quite a bit as we try to balance phone life and real life,” Ontario-based dating coach Chantal Heide told the Post of the phenomenon.

Heide further advised hopeless romantics who suspect they’ve been so-called “soft ghosted” to take things in stride and be patient in the dating game.

“Singles sometimes feel a loneliness void that they fill by seeking validation from other people,” she said. “That can go wrong or turn to anger when that validation isn’t turning into the instant gratification we’re conditioned to expect with texting.”

The original post defining the term by Overheard LA, meanwhile, clearly struck a nerve with social media users, with the post racking up over 84,000 likes to date.

“Omg I SOFT GHOST everybody,” one commenter cried.

“Oh snap,” another agreed.

Others, meanwhile, weren’t quite so fazed by the fad.

“Who cares?” one wondered.

“Unpopular opinion: double texting is fine and people make too big of a deal about it. There’s a difference between sending a few sentences in different texts and obsessively spamming them,” another said.

In other words of wisdom, singles looking for love should also be wary of other frustrating dating fads that have recently made headlines, including “paper clipping,” “cloaking,” “trickle ghosting,” “pocketing,” “cookie jarring” and “you-turning.”

Colorado boy, 5, stages ‘Up’-themed birthday photoshoot with great-grandparents

A Colorado boy has paid tribute to his favorite movie with a photoshoot.

Elijah Perman, 5, is a huge fan of the 2009 Pixar classic “Up.” His mother, part-time photographer Rachel Perman, says her son is “obsessed” with the movie.

When Elijah and his twin sister Emilee turned 5 recently, Rachel decided to do what she called “magical shoots” for their birthday.

“I was diagnosed with cancer right after my twins were born and had fears if I would even get to see their 5th birthday,” she told Fox News in an email. “… SO for their 5th birthday I wanted to celebrate the things they love with photos! It’s a celebration for me and them!”

Emilee got a photo session with a horse dressed up as a unicorn. Elijah chose to pay tribute to his favorite movie. He donned a boy scout’s uniform similar to the character of Russell, while his great-grandparents Richard and Caroline Bain proved to be dead ringers for Carl and Ellie. And, of course, there were balloons. Lots and lots of balloons.

“It seemed like a sweet idea to get my grandparents involved in the process,” Rachel Perman told Fox News. “I love that we get to celebrate them as well.

Connecticut family honors late prankster dad with hilarious obituary

One Connecticut family has honored their late patriarch as the true prankster he was in a hilariously honest obituary that has been widely circulated on social media and left many commenters wishing they had known the “wonderful” man, too.

Joseph “Joe” A. Heller, Jr. passed away on Sept. 8 at age 82, and his daughter Monique memorialized his mischievous life and times in a 1,300-word, must-read obituary, WFSB reports.

In the emotional and entertaining piece, the author shared that her father was born January 1937 in New Haven as the Great Depression rocked the nation, a day and age that “shaped Joe’s formative years and resulted in a lifetime of frugality, hoarding and cheap mischief, often at the expense of others.”

Joe embraced his all-important role as the eldest of five children and proudly “tortured his siblings through a childhood of obnoxious pranks, with his brother, Bob, generally serving as his wingman.”

From pranking others with laxative-laced cakes and even going so far as to name his first dog “Fart,” the funny man worked as a library assistant at Yale Law School Library before making a grand plan with his lifelong friends Ronny Kaiser and Johnny Olson to join the Navy and explore the world together.

“Their plot was thwarted and the three were split up when Joe pulled the ‘long straw’ and was assigned to a coveted base in Bermuda where he joined the ‘Seabees’ construction battalion,” the author wrote, detailing that her father’s military service inspired a lifelong commitment to his country and community. Later in life, Joe served as a town constable, volunteer fireman, crosswalk guard, public works snow plow official, ambulance association member and proud member of the Antique Veterans of Meriden Honor Guard.

A “self-taught” chemist, Joe worked at Cheeseborough-Ponds manufacturing where he met his future wife, Irene, who was reportedly “hoodwinked into thinking he was a charming individual with decorum.”

“Boy, was she ever wrong,” Monique joked. “To this day we do not understand how he convinced our mother, an exceedingly proper woman and a pillar in her church, to sew and create the colorful costumes and props which he used for his antics.”

The couple welcomed three daughters, Michelle, Lisette and Monique, who agreed that growing up with their lively father meant there was never a dull moment in their household.

In his youth, Joe made a grand plan with two friends to join the Navy and see the world together. During his time in military service, Joe was assigned to Bermuda and worked for the “Seabees” construction battalion. (iStock)

MAN PROPOSES TO GIRLFRIEND FOR A MONTH WITHOUT HER KNOWING IT, GOES VIRAL

The dedicated father would let the girls “do” his hair and makeup, lovingly crafted their doll furniture and a play kitchen, and often made them forts in the backyard.

When the girls grew up and began dating, their protective dad would typically greet their suitors “by first running their license plates and checking for bald tires.”

“If their vehicle passed inspection, they were invited into the house, where shotguns, harpoons and sheep ‘nutters’ were left clearly on display,” the author said.

As for his one-of-a-kind personality, Joe never met a dog he didn’t like, frequently treasure-hunted at the Essex Dump and was famed as a “consummate napper” who was blessed with the unique ability to fall asleep at any “road, restaurant or friend’s house in Essex.”

Joe was predeceased by his wife Irene, brother Bobby and pet fish Jack. According to Monique, the family was surprised to find the aquatic creature in the freezer last week.

“Left to squabble over his vast fortune, real estate holdings and ‘treasures,’” the Connecticut man leaves behind his three daughters, their partners, and eight grandchildren, who he hoped that at he had taught “at least one of them” to cuss properly.

He is also survived by his siblings Pat, Richard and Kathy, two sisters-in-law and 14 nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family jokingly asked for “donations to offset the expense of publishing an exceedingly long obituary” which would have made Joe upset. Or, the family requested, have a cup of coffee with a friend and salute the Joe’s life, or even play a “harmless prank on some unsuspecting sap” in his honor.

More seriously, the Heller family is gathering donations to the Seabee Memorial Scholarship Association in their beloved prankster’s honor.

As for funeral arrangements, a viewing will be held on Thursday night, complete with a “light dinner” as Joe felt that “no get-together was complete without food.”

“Feel free to be as late as you’d like as Joe was never on time for anything because of the aforementioned napping habits,” Monique joked, advising attendees to “dress comfortably” as “Joe despised formality and stuffiness and would really be ticked off if you showed up in a suit.”

More specifically, the family recommends wearing “the most inappropriate T-Shirt that you are comfortable being seen in public with” as the beloved father and grandfather often did.

“Joe faced his death and his mortality, as he did with his life, face on, often telling us that when he dropped dead to dig a hole in the back yard and just roll him in,” the author continued. “Much to his disappointment, he will be properly interred with full military honors (and maybe Jack) next to his wife on Friday.”

In the days since Joe passed, Monique told WFSB that news of the humorous obit has spread all over the country and world, and the family has been flooded with condolences and well-wishes from dozens of people they have never met. Many agreed that they had wished they had known Joe or been part of his family.

“I was writing it kind of as a memoir of my father. His local friends could relate and say, ‘oh, that was a Joe story,’” Joe’s proud daughter said of the now-viral piece.

“What an awesome tribute for a much-loved man. I hope one of his kids or grandchildren got his prankster gene to carry on Joe’s legacy,” one commenter wrote on the obituary.

“Your Dad is laughing his a– off right now. No better tribute to a life well-lived and loved,” another agreed.

“This is how to live your life. The internet is a wonderful thing and this was, hands-down, the best tribute to a life that I’ve ever read,” another said. “To the family and friends – so very sorry for your loss. He sounds like a wonderful guy and someone I would’ve been great friends with.”

“Rest in peace prankster. Don’t lock the gates,” another said.

Bride cuts dress, dyes it green as way to keep wearing it: ‘Too expensive to just wear once’

Well, that’s one way to go green.

Emma Male, 36, got married in a $616 wedding dress, which she has now recycled into her favorite item of clothing.

Male, an account manager from Weybridge, Surrey, got married in a woodland-themed wedding in 2016. After the wedding was over, Male was sad that she would never be able to wear her dress again, which led her to make an extreme decision – cut it up and dye it green.

“It was the first designer dress I tried and as soon as I put it on I just loved it,” Male said to the Mirror of choosing the dress, which she purchased at a sample sale at her friend’s boutique.

Though Male wanted a way to wear the dress again and again, remarking it was too “expensive [a] dress to just wear once,” she was dubious at first about dying it.

“When I first saw it going into the green dye, it looked so dark. I thought ‘Oh my god. What am I doing?’” she quipped.

But Male’s cousin, Katie, reportedly helped push Male into transforming the dress. Together, the pair cut the full-length gown into a midi-dress and soaked the fabric in green dye.

“Me and Azly are the groom’s childhood friends and the other man was his friend from work,” said Amir Zulfadhli Zulkifly, who recorded the video. “This was the first time we had ever met, and it was really funny. It was just a coincidence that Azly and his doppelganger were both wearing red shirts.”

Bride allegedly asks cancer-stricken bridesmaid to pay extra and wear a wig

There are “bridezillas,” and then there are people who feel inconvenienced by their friend’s cancer.

A post that appeared on Reddit’s “Bridezilla” forum (after it apparently appeared in a Facebook wedding group) tells the alleged story of a bride-to-be who expected one of her bridesmaids — who is stricken with cancer — to pay extra for make-up and buy a wig for the wedding.

BRIDE-TO-BE ATTACKS WEDDING PLANNER OVER FAILED TRIP TO DENNY’S

“My best friend is getting married in two weeks,” the post reads. “She asked me to be a bridesmaid last October, way before my cancer diagnosis. Since being diagnosed, I have lost my hair, including eyebrows and eyelashes.”

And this is where the story takes a weird turn.

“(The bride) keeps making comments about (me) getting a wig for her wedding,” the post continues. “On a daily basis I just rock my bald head and it is not financially feasible or practical for me to purchase a ‘good’ wig just for her wedding. I don’t know how to bring this up to her. I understand she doesn’t want me bald, but it’s who I am right now.”

If that wasn’t upsetting enough, the bridesmaid also added, “(The bride) also dropped the bomb that the girl she hired for makeup is going to cost me extra because ‘she will have to put in extra work on you.’ Am I wrong in feeling that this is completely unfair?”

The comment section was full of responses supporting the original author. Many showed no sympathy towards the bride-to-be, with one post saying, “Just tell her that you’re terribly sorry your life-threatening condition is inconveniencing her.”

Others came up with creative solutions to the problem. As one commenter suggested, “I’d buy a clown wig if I was in this situation. Tell the ‘friend’ that she never specified that she didn’t want a clown wig worn to her wedding.”

Another commenter summed up most of the reactions, writing, “I hope (the author) bows out. ‘Forcing your bridesmaid to pay extra because cancer made her un-pretty’ is one of the most selfish things I’ve heard.”

Alicia Silverstone slams Starbucks over wasted cups, charging extra for nondairy milk

Actress Alicia Silverstone has a bone to pick with Starbucks.

The “Clueless” star went on a tirade against the coffeehouse chain in a series of tweets Tuesday after a worker used a disposable cup to pour her drink.

Silverstone, who is a longtime vegan and environmental activist, said she brought her reusable mug to an undisclosed Starbucks store to “reduce waste.” But she was horrified when she noticed that the staff had used a disposable cup to pour the drink into her personal mug.

ALICIA SILVERSTONE CLAIMS HER SON HAS ‘NEVER HAD TO TAKE MEDICINE’ BECAUSE HE’S VEGAN

“Depressing! Just brought my reusable mug to @Starbucks &saw staff use a disposable cup, pour it into my mug, then toss the disposable cup,” Silverstone tweeted. “Totally defeats the purpose of trying 2 reduce waste. Then I looked around to see so many people sitting @ the cafe all w disposables! Ugh.”

But that wasn’t her only issue with Starbucks. In another tweet, Silverstone said she was “frustrated” over the coffee company’s surcharge for nondairy milk.

“Y should we be penalized 4 making the eco-choice? It would be amazing for @Starbucks to lead the way &consider enviro externalities associated w the dairy industry by having dairy cost + or at least = plantmilk fees,” she tweeted.

Just when Twitter users thought the actress was done with her rant, Silverstone had one more gripe with Starbucks: “@starbucks one more thing – can you please get unsweetened oat milk at all your locations?”
