Ashley’s Morning Scoop 12.29.15

Ryan Phillippe is officially off the market. The ex-husband of Reese Witherspoon got engaged over the Holiday weekend to his 24-year old law student girlfriend, Paulina Slagter. The pair dated for four years prior to the engagement.

Apparently Blake Shelton isn’t the only one moving on from his divorce from Miranda Lambert. Miranda has been dating R & B singer, Anderson East for about a month and the two plan on ringing in the New Year together. Shelton will obviously be ringing in the New Year with girlfriend and fellow Voice judge, Gwen Stefani.

So, you know those ASPCA ads with the animals that have been abused and Sarah McLachlan in the background singing “Angel?” I either have to close my eyes the second they come on or immediately turn the channel, and I know that I am not alone- McLachlan says she can’t watch them either!

The dangers of hoverboards, spontaneously bursting into flames because of the lithium ion batteries have been widely known for awhile now, with many airlines and even Amazon banning them, but apparently, Russell Crowe didn’t get the memo. The Australian actor checked in for a Virgin Airlines flight and was livid when his son’s hoverboard wasn’t allowed on the flight. Crowe took to twitter telling the airline he would never fly them again and asking why they didn’t tell him hoverboards weren’t allowed on the plane when he booked his ticket. The airline responded, apologizing for the inconvenience, but letting him know that they have made every effort to make passengers aware, including posting to their Facebook and Twitter and putting in their flight rules and check-in reminder emails.
