Georgia family finds massive alligator ‘sunning himself’ in front yard

A family in Bainbridge, Ga., had the “surprise of a lifetime” when they found a massive alligator soaking in some sun in their front yard.

The Bainbridge Public Safety Department took to Facebook with photos of the creature, which they said may have come from a nearby “swamp-like” area.

“We were eating breakfast and actually reading about a dinosaur when it came walking by,” homeowner Summer K. Day said, per the public safety department.

Day and her husband, who the Bainbridge Public Safety Department did not name in the post, then called local officials to report the gator. After authorities with the safety department and other local agencies arrived, the state’s department of natural resources (DNR) was contacted.

“I will never be the same and my children are never going outside again. But they thought it was pretty cool that they got to eat their breakfast with a ‘dinosaur.'”

— Summer Day

Shortly after officials worked together to “control and secure” the nearly 11-foot gator, it was lifted and loaded into the back of a DNR truck. It was then “taken to a safer and more appropriate location,” officials said, noting the entire process took roughly an hour.

“I will never be the same, and my children are never going outside again,” Day added. “But they thought it was pretty cool that they got to eat their breakfast with a ‘dinosaur.’”

Meghan Markle-Prince Harry pal George Clooney jokes about sharing birthday with baby Archie

Westlake Legal Group george-clooney-reuters Meghan Markle-Prince Harry pal George Clooney jokes about sharing birthday with baby Archie Madeline Farber fox-news/world/personalities/british-royals fox-news/entertainment/events/babies fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 184225bc-7b83-5704-a122-5c9abf698c05

George Clooney isn’t too thrilled he shares a special day with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s newborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor — a birthday.

“He stole my thunder,” the actor joked during an appearance on the British talk show “Lorraine” this week, per People. “That kid stole my thunder!”

Later, when asked when he will get to meet the newest member of Britain’s royal family, Clooney said he wasn’t sure.

MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY’S PAL GEORGE CLOONEY ADDRESSES RUMORS HE’LL BE GODFATHER TO BABY ARCHIE

“Soon, I hope,” he added.

This wasn’t the first time the actor, 58, has made light of sharing a birthday with Archie. Earlier this month, Clooney joked that sharing the day was “kind of irritating.”

“It’s kind of irritating if you think about it,” Clooney told Extra. “’Cause I’ve already had to split it with Orson Welles, Sigmund Freud — and now this comes in. I’m moving down the line very quickly.”

GEORGE CLOONEY SAYS WIFE, AMAL, HAS FORBIDDEN HIM FROM RIDING MOTORCYCLES AFTER CRASH IN ITALY

Clooney may share the same birthday as Archie, but he’s not the godfather.

The actor, while speaking to “Extra,” also set the record straight on whether he is Archie’s godfather after rumors surfaced he would possibly take on the role because of his relationship with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. (Clooney has been a close friend of Prince Harry and Markle and attended their wedding last May with his wife, Amal, who also reportedly went to the Duchess’ baby shower in New York City back in February.)

“Everybody loves their rumors. It’s not true. You don’t want me to be a godparent of anybody. I’m barely a parent at this point. It’s frightening,” Clooney said, referring to his nearly 2-year-old twins, Ella and Alexander, whom he shares with Amal.

Fox News’ Katherine Lam contributed to this report.

Selma Blair shows off tennis skills as she continues MS battle

Selma Blair isn’t letting her multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis keep her from living an active lifestyle.

The “Cruel Intentions” star, who revealed her MS diagnosis in October, took to Instagram this week to show off her tennis skills, writing a blunt caption alongside the image.

Many of Blair’s fans and supporters were quick to comment on the photo, which had more than 100,000 likes as of Saturday afternoon.

OZZY OSBOURNE’S SON JACK TELLS SELMA BLAIR SHE’S ‘NOT ALONE’ IN MS BATTLE

“Ever since I read your Vanity Fair profile, I’ve been following your story — the ups and downs — and am inspired by your humor and grace through it all. When I’m exhausted or my tiny world feels like it’s falling apart, I think of you and how you persevere. On top of it all, you make single parenting look easy. Your son is a lucky boy. Thank you for reminding me to be grateful and strong daily,” wrote one person.

“Awesome picture. I love you so much, Selma,” commented another.

“Go, Selma, go! Good form!” said a third.

“You are so beautiful,” another shared.

SELMA BLAIR STRUGGLING WITH MS TREATMENTS, FEELS ‘SICK AS ALL HELL’

Blair often takes to the photo-sharing platform to post about her ongoing battle with MS, an “unpredictable, often disabling disease that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body,” according to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Earlier this month, for instance, the 46-year-old shared a post about struggling with her MS treatments.

“Here’s a truth. I feel sick as all hell. I am vomiting and all the things which are not polite to speak of. My son ran away. From me. I have to get him to school. The medical treatments take their toll,” she wrote, in part, at the time.

Halle Berry admits she knew this movie she starred in was doomed to flop

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6027248339001_6027245721001-vs Halle Berry admits she knew this movie she starred in was doomed to flop Madeline Farber fox-news/person/halle-berry fox-news/entertainment/genres/late-night fox news fnc/entertainment fnc fe469018-be78-5ef9-a82d-1be1b0ff9844 article

Halle Berry had a confession to make during an appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” this week.

On the show, the actress played “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts,” a game in which the contestant can choose to answer one of Corden’s questions or eat something unappetizing.

HALLE BERRY CHOOSES NEXT JAMES BOND ACTOR: ‘I’D GO FOR HIM’

At one point, Corden asked Berry if she had ever worked on a movie she knew would likely not be a success.

In lieu of eating beetle nachos, the 52-year-old had a candid response.

“I’m sorry everybody who worked on this movie but I kind of knew it wasn’t going to be the greatest cinematic experience for the people,” she said of the 1996 film “The Rich Man’s Wife.” The movie, in which Berry played the character Josie Potenza, has a total lifetime gross amount of roughly $8.5 million, per Box Office Mojo.

“You go into these movies always with the best intention,” she continued. “But then sometimes you get on the set and then you realize, ‘What was I, high when I agreed to do this?'”

Berry’s honest answer came just days after she showed off her bold new hairdo at a special screening of “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.” The actress stars alongside Keanu Reeves in the new film.

Jennifer Lopez is proof that age is just a number.

The 49-year-old “Hustlers” actress took to Instagram this week to share a photo of herself wearing leggings and a bra, showing off her toned abs and arms.

“Feelin’ wavy in these @niyamasol leggings that are made from recycled plastic, and are a reminder to keep our oceans clean, by practicing the first Niyama called Saucha,” she wrote alongside the photo, which had more than 1 million likes as of early Saturday afternoon.

JENNIFER LOPEZ’S DAUGHTER, 11, SINGS ALICIA KEYS SONG ‘IF I AIN’T GOT YOU’ AND NAILS IT

“Smoke show,” commented Lopez’s husband and former baseball star Alex Rodriguez, who the New York Post recently reported may have a hard time pursuing legal action over a viral photo that shows him sitting on the toilet in his New York City apartment. (The newspaper noted the city’s lenient privacy laws may present trouble for Rodriquez legal team.)

“Stunning pic,” wrote one fan.

“This pic just told me to go to the gym,” said another.

“Mom bod goals,” commented a third.

The photo comes just days after the pop star’s daughter, Emme, took the Internet by storm after Lopez shared a video of the 11-year-old nailing a rendition of Alicia Keys’ hit song “If I Ain’t Got You.”

Priyanka Chopra says she was bullied for her race in high school: ‘It affected my self-esteem’

Priyanka Chopra is no stranger to bullying.

The actress and former Miss World recently opened up about the painful bullying she endured in high school, specifically.

“I was treated differently because I’m brown,” Chopra told The Associated Press. “I had, you know, really racist behavior when I was in high school in 10th grade. I was called ‘Brownie,’ ‘Curry,’ [told to] ‘go back on the elephant you came on,’ and that really affected me when I was a kid and affected my self-esteem.”

PRIYANKA CHOPRA SAYS WATCHING ‘GAME OF THRONES’ IS A FAMILY EVENT: ‘WORLD WILL MOURN’ WHEN SHOW ENDS

The “Baywatch” actress grew up in India but moved to the U.S. at 13, according to People, which noted she attended high school in Queens, New York, Massachusetts and Iowa.

Chopra, who has lobbied for more inclusion in the entertainment industry, recently partnered with global skincare brand Obagi as an ambassador for the “Skinclusion” initiative.

PRIYANKA CHOPRA SPILLS SOPHIE TURNER, JOE JONAS’ LAS VEGAS WEDDING SECRETS: ‘IT WAS EPIC’

The 36-year-old, who wed pop star Nick Jonas in December, told The Associated Press she hopes for a better, more inclusive world when she and her husband decide to start a family. Jonas recently revealed he and Chopra are “taking [their] time” when it comes to having children.

“I do want to create a world for my future kids where they don’t have to think about diversity, where they’re not talking about it because it’s normal,” she said.

Separately, Chopra also said in the same interview she’s “married to a ‘Game of Thrones’ family” and noted the airing of the hit HBO show —  in which her sister-in-law Sophie Turner (wife of Joe Jonas) stars as Sansa Stark — is a family affair, often leading to large gatherings.

Huge 3-legged alligator hobbles across Florida golf course, appears at woman’s home

It may not be uncommon to see an alligator in the Sunshine State, but one Florida woman had an unusual experience when she saw a three-legged gator hobbling toward her.

Lori Greenberg of Bonita Springs caught the moment on camera when the gator, which appeared to be missing a leg, came toward her across the green at the Bonita National Golf Course and Country Club. At one point, the gator appears to stop and rest, video of the event shows.

“3 legged alligator coming to take a rest outside my lanai. Yikes!” she later wrote on Facebook, sharing both the footage and an up-close shot of the huge reptile.

The gator then “stared inside for hours,” she said, according to Sputnik News.

“Wow that’s a little too close for comfort!” one person commented on Greenberg’s video.

“That’s quite possible scarier than a four-legged alligator! Officially creeped out,” wrote another.

“The poor thing — I’m sure it’s exhausted and needs the rest!” said a third.

It’s not currently clear what happened to the gator or if Greenberg called local animal control for assistance in removing the prehistoric-looking creature.

The news comes after a “massive” gator was recently removed from beside a children’s school bus stop in the state — but not before it performed a so-called “death roll.”

Lori Greenberg did not immediately return Fox News’ request for additional comment on Wednesday.

Kelly Ripa rips ‘Bachelor’ and ‘Bachelorette’ franchise, says it ‘disgusts’ her

When it comes to the beloved reality shows “The Bachelorette” and “The Bachelor,” Kelly Ripa is not a fan of either.

The “Live with Kelly and Ryan” co-host on Tuesday slammed both shows shortly after Ryan Seacrest, her fellow co-host, announced that Hannah Brown will make an appearance on their talk show this week. Brown, the newest Bachelorette, was a contestant in the 23rd season of “The Bachelor” but was ultimately not chosen by its star, Colton Underwood.

“You guys know how I feel about the show — it disgusts me,” she said of “The Bachelorette,” per Page Six.

Ripa then went on to share her thoughts on “The Bachelor.”

“I can’t stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion. You know how I feel, ladies — we are too special to be arguing over a guy,” she argued.

“Having said that, all of you women watch that gross, gross show,” she added, apparently addressing the talk show’s audience, per Us Weekly.

Priyanka Chopra says watching ‘Game of Thrones’ is a family event: ‘World will mourn’ when show ends

Game of Thrones” time is family time for Priyanka Chopra.

The actress, who is married to singer Nick Jonas, recently told The Associated Press the airing of the hit HBO show —  in which her sister-in-law Sophie Turner (wife of Joe Jonas) stars as Sansa Stark — is a family affair, often leading to large gatherings.

“I’m married to a ‘Game of Thrones’ family, I guess,” she began. “The last episode, I wasn’t in town, but I think everyone else in the family got together, like 50 people, and watched the episode. My husband is a huge, huge fan.”

The former Miss World, who married Nick Jonas in December, is excited about the show’s final episode — but noted the moment will be bittersweet.

“I’m so sad it’s over, though,” she said of the beloved fantasy show’s eighth and final season. “The world will mourn.”

Separately, in a recent interview with Access, the actress spilled the details from Turner and Joe Jonas’ impromptu wedding in Las Vegas last week, which occurred just after the Jonas Brothers, Turner, Chopra and Kevin Jonas’ wife Danielle Jonas attended the Billboard Music Awards.

“It was so fun, so ‘Jophie’ — I call them ‘Jophie,’” she said, in part.

Additionally, Nick and Joe Jonas, Chopra and Turner attended the Broadway musical “Beetlejuice” in New York City on Friday evening.

Huge alligator found in Arkansas rice field after rain causes rivers to overflow

An alligator estimated to be 9 feet long was displaced after heavy rain in the in Grubbs, Arkansas, area caused nearby rivers to overflow.

Local resident Frank Pierce told KAIT-8 that he and his family spotted the large reptile “laying out in the field” as they were on their way to go fishing.

Later, authorities with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office were called. Sheriff David Lucas said officials at first thought the call was a joke.

“When we first got the call, we thought well this is some kind of prank or a log or something because you just don’t see gators this far north,” he told the news station.

But he would soon find out it was no hoax.

“[I] looked out in the field and saw it sitting there and I thought, ‘I don’t know what we’re going to do,’” he added.

Arkansas Game and Fish Commission wildlife biologist Mark Barbee told KAIT-8 why the gator found its way to such an unusual place, citing heavy rainfall as a likely reason.

“What’s happened is with all the recent rainfall, it’s just displaced him out of the river system is what’s happening,” he said.

A second gator, too, was also reportedly found in the same area.
