EXCLUSIVE: Never-Before-Seen Photos of Young Mitt Romney, High-School Prankster
Imagine this: as the election winds to a close, Vanity Fair uncovers a shoe box of old yearbook photos, newspaper clippings, and snapshots of a teenaged Mitt Romney. Our source is a disgruntled employee in the Romney-family stables who insisted that she be referred to only as “R.R.” before handing us the previously unseen images. In them, a very recognizable Mitt goofs off with friends and engages in the kinds of pranks for which he is well remembered from his days at the Cranbrook School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. His now familiar childhood grin is on full display as he mocks gay classmates, slips a teacher a Mickey, and even fires a beloved school janitor.
That Mitt! Such a goof! A handsome, wealthy goof!
Mitt has always been considerate and sensitive to the needs of our nation’s women—take this grandmother, for example, who was just cruisin’ for a bruisin’!
By the time he reached his senior year, in 1965, Mitt was legendary on campus for his harmless tricks
Less popular students knew to keep on their toes around Mitt and his buddies.
Mitt was involved in nearly a dozen school organizations, including the Blue Key Society and the football cheerleading squad. He was also an avid reader.
Mitt articulates his affection for a Kingswood School co-ed on the same device he uses for class notes
In 1968, Mitt returned home from his mission in France to marry his wife—but not before swinging by Cranbrook to mock some of his anti-war former classmates.
He even won some yearbook superlatives for Best Impersonator!
Even out of fly-fishing season, Mitt was known to hone his angling skills among Detroit’s poor.
Good parody is never far from the truth.
Surely you know Edward Cullen's signature bronze locks by now. (If not, what vampire have you been ogling lately?!) But what about the countless different 'dos that the vampire's real life counterpart, Robert Pattinson, has rocked?
Throughout his Twilight-fueled rocket to fame, R.Pattz has cut, colored, coifed and otherwise changed his hair style. So as the Breaking Dawn Part 2 press tour begins (with whatever hairy situation that brings), we thought it the opportune time to look back at the good, the bad and the WTF-worthy 'dos that Rob has had over the years.
Before he was R.Pattz he was just Rob Pattinson. The actor appeared as Cedric Diggory but ditched the Hogwarts student's feathered locks for this lion's mane at the July 8, 2007 premiere. Which inspired its name: The Asian.
In 2008, the vampire boyfriend beloved by millions of teen girls (and their moms!) was cast, causing a controversial uproar. But when Rob's immortally messy bronze hair was revealed, all was well. This 'do? The O.G. Eddie Cullen.
MTV's Spoilers Event
While fans were clamoring for a sneak peek at their fave supernatural romance, they got a different spoiler: Robert Pattinson has some seriously crazy hair. Which, in his early years, often went untamed. This look: The Tumbleweed.
Not that it necessarily got better when he did attempt to tame his mane (with what surely was an industrial size bottle of gel). Such was the case with his 'do on his first Twilight carpet, the 2008 Los Angeles premiere. AKA The Oil Spill.
Edward Cullen returned in 2009 for the highly anticipated follow-up and so did his by-then infamously perfect (and once again bronzed) hair. Cue millions of comforted sighs. Which is why we've named this look The Homecoming.
Rob has graced the cover of thousands upon thousands of magazines. But in 2009, he was apparently still following the old hair adage, "The higher the hair, the closer to god." So this 'do we've dubbed The Texan Trophy Wife.
Le Grand Journal
Promofor the second Twilight movie took the cast around the world, including this pit stop Pattinson made in France. This hair 'do seemed to want to
be styled as high as physically possible, so we're referring it as The 2009 Bouffant.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
With each installment, our favorite Cullen's 'do became a little more refined. So by the time the third film rolled into theaters, his bronze locks were shorter and styled more subtly. Which is why this classic look is simply The Edward.
When Rob arrived in San Diego for the Twilight gang's usual tour-de-Con, there were fewer jaws on the floor and more eyebrows raised when he debuts his half-buzzed head (for Cosmopolis). Our reaction? The look's name: The WTF.
Paparazzi caught Rob in quite the hairy situation during a trip to the airport: Not only was his hair fully grown in again, but he was accompanying it with an enormous beard! The nearly incognito look inspired the name The Hottie Hobo.
Breaking Dawn Part 1 Premiere
Rob arrived at the Los Angeles premiere of the second-toplast Twilight flick sporting a flash maroon jacket that was perfectly complimented by
locks with a slightly redder hue. WHile not full on rouge, we dub this one The Giner Snap. (I assume they mean ginger)
2012 People's Choice Awards
R.Pattz may not have taken home the award for Favorite Movie Actor, but he did use the night to show off his freshly buzzed head. Luckily, ditching his
signature perfect locks didn't trigger the end of the world. We say it's The Cue Ball.
No signs of impending trouble here-not in Rob's demeanor during the convention or in his hair, what with every hair perfectly in place. A pre-epic moment deserving of a long name such as The Well Groomed Calm Before the Storm
New York Stock Exhance
Following the K.Stew cheating scandal, Rob went off the grid. But he returned to the scene with his hair slicked back and looked better than ever as he
rang the opening bell. So we're just calling this one what it is: The Best Revenge.
Elle's 19th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration
As things returned to normal in R.Patzz's personal life, he returned to his usual red carpet look: Tousled hair and facial scruff. Robsten was unbroken and so was his streak of rocking this look. So... The Regular.
And, not surprising, it seems to be a look that Rob will stick to (with slight variations in the amount of facial grooming, hair product amounts, etc.) throughout the final Twilight press tour. But who knows, maybe he'll shocks us with The ???
RED TIDE: Taylor Swift's Red now looks solidly north of 1 million in first-week sales, with a chance to possibly top Lady Gaga's 1.1 million-selling debut for Born This Wayin May 2011. But that album, of course, included more than 400k in 99-cent sales fromAmazon MP3. How about that, boys and girls?! Meanwhile, Interscope's Kendrick Lamar is also having a big first week, with his album now looking like it will break 200k.(10/23p)

This foreign born actress who is probably a B- list movie actress has A list name recognition and a huge following and legions of male admirers. She is moving back to the US which is causing her boyfriend all kinds of trauma. He had been counting down the days until his girlfriend left town after her current movie finishes filming.
He has grown tired of her always thinking she is smarter than him and correcting his grammar and table manners and why this is wrong and that is wrong. He also told a friend of his that once you get over the fact that you are having sex with_______, that it is really boring and very plain.
He had been seeing someone else when she was out of the country before and was really looking forward to being back with her, but just didn't want to be the bad guy and "the guy who broke up". The actress is talking about moving in and all he can think about is moving far away.
My Guess:Emma Watson and Will Adamovicz. She's currently in New York filming "Noah". He's back at college in the U.S. after spending a year at Oxford University.Is she returning to Brown for Spring Semester?
According to Heat Magazine, the One Direction's Niall Horan has been pursuing 31-year-old Irish model and presenter Glenda Gilson for a while now, and even flirted his way through an interview with her. When she asked him about hooking up with any girls the night before, he replied: “No, I didn’t. You didn’t show up!”
The night she was referring to Horan had been out with his mates and texting Glenda trying to get her to come out. Glenda, who is “madly in love” with her boyfriend, told heat: “He’d been wanting me to go out, but I didn’t, as I don’t want to be the new Caroline Flack and be hated by every woman in the world. I refused to be that one.”
A source close to Niall told the mag: “He has the hots for her. He’d been having a few drinks with the band and, as the drinks flowed, he seemed increasingly determined to get Glenda out with him and his friends, but she was asleep at home!”
Even Niall himself is being strangely un-cagey about all this, admitting: “Yes, I had been trying to get hold of Glenda during the night, but she couldn’t come out in the end. It’s fine though, we’re good friends. We have a great craic together.”
Exhibit 1: Check out the insane chemistry in this interview:
Exhibit 2: Click here to see Niall back in December last year saying he wants to take Glenda on a date.
One Direction star Liam Payne has opened up about his split from girlfriend Danielle Peazer, stating he's concerned for her.
The Live While We're Young singer and Peazer - who met on the 2010 series of The X Factor where she worked as a backing dancer - called time on their romance last month.
Payne has now addressed their break up, telling Now magazine: "I've been trying to deal with it in private.
"I'm not so much worried about me - whatever happens I'll live and deal with it. I'm more concerned about Danielle because I don't want people harassing her for any reason."
He added: "Obviously she's got a lot on her mind without people saying things on the internet or going to her doorstep.
"She doesn't need that right now... I've asked for people to stay away from her as much as possible so she can deal with things."
The 18-year old also went on to slam those who targeted Peazer online during their relationship, telling the publication: "Twitter twists things a bit. People have a false sense of confidence behind a keyboard.
"Some of the things they say I just can't believe. I think, 'How can you say that? You wouldn't be able to say that to someone on the street, so why say it now?' But it's one of those things."
If you cast your mind back to the dawn of time, you may well remember that fling Rebecca Ferguson and Zayn Malik had on the X Factor tour.
It might have been a while ago, but apparently Ferguson has been left ''shocked'' after her One Direction ex recently spoke out about the relationship. Mainly because he seemed to imply that the whole thing was a bit of a mistake.
Although the Bradford Bad Boy never spoke up about the split at the time, Rebecca has been quoted as saying that they didn't end things on the friendliest of terms.
But even so, she sounds pretty surprised about Zayn's feelings and the fact that he recently told Now that their entire relationship ''shouldn't have happened''.
“I was so shocked by what he said," she told New.
“I’m not going to retaliate. All I will say is that there have been a lot of things said and he knows so far that I’ve stayed classy and quiet and bitten my lip.
"I’m not one to reveal big secrets about what’s gone on in a relationship, and I think he was probably put up to this. I know him too well to think he’d say it deliberately.
"I won’t talk about what went wrong between us but he knows what happened. And it is what it is. At this point in my career and at my stage of life, I won’t expose what went on there," she added.
Harry Styles has plenty of spare change in his pocket - One Direction have just been placed 5th on the Young Rich List with a fortune of £26million.
The 18-year-old 1D hottie is also spending his cash wisely and to celebrate his mum Anne Cox's birthday, he's just bought her a new luxury four-bedroom house.
'Harry is really close to his mum Anne and loves being able to treat her to nice things,' says a family friend.
'This is a special gift for her, to say thank you for all the wonderful things she's done over the years.
'Anne's struggled with two divorces and being a single mother. Harry couldn't wait to give her the keys on her birthday as a massive thank you.'
Harry's mum returned from her charity trek to the top of Kilimanjaro on 4 October and will now be busy moving out of the former family home in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire where Harry grew up.
'Everyone in the village is talking about Anne leaving,' the source tells the Daily Star.
'She's moving further into the countryside in a four-bed luxury house with lots of land.
'Harry is a great lad and very much liked by everyone around the village.'
They are the biggest boy band in the world, but obviously One Direction's fans aren't as fond of football as they are of their beloved boys, as Louis Tomlinson found out yesterday.
The boybander organised a charity football match after buying his local pub team but the stadium was at half its capacity, despite the supposed draw of him playing on the pitch. In his shorts.
There were hundreds of empty seats at the Keepmoat Stadium as his team, the Three Horseshoes, took on Doncaster Rovers.
Previous reports had suggested that demand for tickets had been "mad", with 4,000 people in the booking queue when tickets were first released, but fans didn't appear to turn out last night.
However, Louis was undeterred as he demonstrated his fancy footwork, playing side-by-side with Robbie Fowler (he's a famous player so our pals on the sports desk tell us).
And of course the other 1D lads were on hand to show their support, as Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne cheered on from the sidelines, later taking to the pitch for a post match kick about.
Despite missing it, Louis later scored the winning goal, with his team winning the match 2-1.

Another bogus celebrity lawsuit has been filed in federal court ... this time, the troublemaker claims to be Chris Brown ... and he's filed an INSANE lawsuit against Rihanna.
TMZ has obtained the documents, filed in U.S. District Court in Tennessee ... in which "Chris Brown" is requesting a restraining order against Rihanna because he fears she will cause him bodily harm.
The suit contains the following (completely untrue) allegations:
-- "[Rihanna] gave me herpes and then when I threatened to file a lawsuit against her for not telling me she was infested with genital blisters she began to hit herself in the face and throw herself into walls just as Jim Carrey did in the movie 'Liar, Liar."
"Then she turned around and blamed me for the matter as a form of punishment."
-- "I woke up with three blisters on my penis ... this isn't just a regular case of American herpes, this is a case of Herpes from Barbados, which is most likely lethal."
The accuser is demanding $10 million ... along with "a restraining order against Rihanna and her case of genital herpes immediately."
TMZ broke the story ... someone claiming to be Selena Gomez's father filed another bogus lawsuit in Michigan -- accusing Justin Bieber of stealing his credit card for a penis enlargement.
Clearly, the allegations contained in the lawsuits are completely untrue ... and if the culprit is identified, he or she could be punished by the judge.
Throughout film history, there are monsters of different forms, shapes and sizes. These are not your ordinary monsters, such as Frankenstein, Dracula, The One Eyed One Eared Flying Purple People Eater, etc, but rather men and women and children from different films that truly prove that evil comes in different forms. Here is an incomplete survey of actual and arguable monsters, broadly defined, from Classic Hollywood. Here are a dozen that haunt my dreams...and maybe yours.
1. MRS. DANVERS (JUDITH ANDERSON)
Film: Rebecca (1940)
Monstrous Deed(s): Obsessed with Maxim’s (Laurence Olivier’s) now-deceased first wife, refuses to allow second wife (vulnerable, doe-eyed Joan Fontaine) to be happy/have peace/realize that Maxim loves her. Ever. Encourages suicide; tricks Joan Fontaine into making a fool of herself; lots of piercing, vacant stares.
Monstrous Quote: "I watched you go down just as I watched her a year ago. Even in the same dress you couldn't compare” in stiff competition with “Oh, you've moved her brush, haven't you?"
2. LON CHANEY'S MANGLED FACE
Film(s): A billion, most notably The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) and The Phantom of the Opera (1925)
Monstrous Deed(s): Dooming his characters to lives of isolation and despair despite their kind, charitable souls.
Tragi-Monstrous Quote: "Feast your eyes! Glut your soul on my accursed ugliness!"
3. KIM NOVAK'S EYEBROWS
Film: Vertigo (1958)
Monstrous Deed(s): Distracts from Scottie (Jimmy Stewart)’s generalized creeper behavior; makes you forget you should dislike him much more than a set of eyebrows.
Monstrous Quote: "There’s no such thing as too much eyebrow pencil."
4. REGINA GIDDENS (BETTE DAVIS)
Film: The Little Foxes (1941)
Monstrous Deed(s): Old-school vigilante feminism: when asshole husband suffers a heart attack and needs medicine on the second floor, stands by and watches him fail to claw his way up the stairs; blackmails manipulative brothers; implicitly encourages daughter who threatens to reveal her actions to flee the family home.
Monstrous Quote: "I'll do things in my own way, Ben. I know what I'm doing."
5. WALTER PAISLEY (DICK MILLER), WAITER AT BEATNIK CAFE
Film: A Bucket of Blood (1959)
Monstrous Deed(s): Always on the outside of the beatnik culture that surrounds him; decides to take the cat that he’s accidentally knifed, cover it in plaster (knife intact), and present it to the arbiters of beatnik culture that run the cafe where he works. They love it, prompting Walter to keep killing bigger and better things and covering them in plaster. Events proceed exactly as one would expect.
Woman Doomed to Become Walter’s Next Art Project: "Nobody asked your opinion, Walter! You're just a simple farm boy, and the rest of us are sophisticated beatniks."
Walter: "I don’t like you…"
6. HETEROSEXUAL MANKIND (NOT DEPICTED)
Film: The Women (1939)
Monstrous Deed(s): Existing; pitting Norma Shearer against Joan Crawford; distracting from 12-minute Technicolor fashion show; siring the character of "Little May."

7. YOUNG JOEY (BRANDON DEWILDE)
Film: Shane (1953)
Monstrous Characteristic: God-given ability to yell.
Monstrous Quote: "Shannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnne!"
8. VEDA PIERCE (ANN BLYTH)
Film: Mildred Pierce (1945)
Monstrous Deed(s): Obsessed with class status and appearances; super pissed when she finds out her mom (Joan Crawford) is working as a waitress in order to supply her with all the clothes she wants. Mom marries wealthy tool to please Veda; Veda takes up with tool; together, they swindle Mom. Just desserts ensue.
Monstrous Quote: Can’t decide between "With this money I can get away from you. From you and your chickens and your pies and your kitchens and everything that smells of grease. I can get away from this shack with its cheap furniture. And this town and its dollar days, and its women that wear uniforms and its men that wear overalls" and "You think just because you made a little money you can get a new hairdo and some expensive clothes and turn yourself into a lady. But you can't, because you'll never be anything but a common frump whose father lived over a grocery store and whose mother took in washing."
9. JONATHAN BREWSTER (RAYMOND MASSEY)
Film: Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)
Monstrous Deed(s): Returns home to estranged brother (Cary Grant) with the body of his latest victim; terrorizes estranged brother and their two old biddy aunts (who also have been hiding bodies in the the basement [long story]); forces his accomplice, Dr. Einstein, to repeatedly perform plastic surgery on his face in order to avoid capture; gets really mad whenever anyone tells him he looks like Frankenstein.
Monstrous Quote: "Dr. Einstein and I need a place to sleep. You remember that, as a boy, I could be disagreeable. It would not be pleasant for any of us if… I don't have to go into details, do I?"
10. REVEREND HARRY POWELL (ROBERT MITCHUM)
Film: The Night of the Hunter (1955)
Monstrous Deed(s): Generalized terror and terrorizing wordsmithery; scaring young children; deceiving Shelley Winters; making whistling creepy.

It was with this left hand that old brother Cain struck the blow that laid his brother low. L-O-V-E! You see these fingers, dear hearts? These fingers has veins that run straight to the soul of man. The right hand, friends, the hand of love. Now watch, and I'll show you the story of life. Those fingers, dear hearts, is always a-warring and a-tugging, one agin t'other. Now watch 'em! Old brother left hand, left hand he's a fighting, and it looks like love's a goner. But wait a minute! Hot dog, love's a winning! Yessirree! It's love that's won, and old left hand hate is down for the count!" Close second: "There are things you do hate, Lord. Perfume-smellin' things, lacy things, things with curly hair."
11. PHYLLIS DIETRICHSON (BARBARA STANWYCK)
Film: Double Indemnity (1944)
Monstrous Deed(s): Playing the system; playing husband; playing Fred McMurray; rocking the sausage-roll uni-bang; dominating the "femme fatale" category for the last 68 years.
Monstrous Quote: "We’re both rotten."
12. ROSEBUD THE SLED
Film: Citizen Kane (1940)
Monstrous Deed(s): Allows itself to become overdetermined symbol of innocence past; tortures hubristic owner the entirety of his life; very name functions as irritant to all forced to watch film during sophomore year of college.
Monstrous Quote: "I’m just a fucking sled."

What did you guys think about the season 1 finale cliffhanger?
There is a lot to talk about the first official trailer for the Shane Black-helmed Iron Man 3, which shows Tony Stark being left truly on his own against a powerful enemy. The sombre tone and intense moments from the trailer suggest that we will see something a little bit different this time around. While we have all seen the trailer (probably dozens of times by now), let's take a look at some of the scenes that are quite interesting and that you might have missed. Possible spoilers below, so in case you don't want to know anything, don't click.
For the two of you who missed the trailer, click here.
This will probably be the key element of the film. In the trailer, we see how the new Iron Man armor acts on its own. Now, those scenes could only be dream sequences, but if we look at the official plot synpopsis for the film (as well as that the film is based on a comic book series Extremis) all signs point to a control change between Tony and the suit. In the synopsis, it says: " As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?"
You thought that all the destruction and deaths in The Avengers was going to be ignored? Not so fast. At the beginning of the trailer, we hear Tony Stark saying how he has trouble sleeping and nightmares because of what happened, and clearly, we will see his struggle as he tries to fix everything. It was a good idea to do this, as it sets a story for other characters like Thor and Captain America, which sequels we will see in 2013 and 2014.
n the trailer, there are two moments that show a situation where people who are very close to Tony, are in danger. The first one is Jon Favreau's character Happy Hogan, a long-time bodyguard of Tony Stark. We see him lying on the floor, heavily injured. The second moment? A rather intense moment with Pepper seemingly being held captive, where we see her screaming and crying. Now, will Happy or Pepper meet their end? That remains to be seen. But, after the "death" of a fan-favorite character in The Avengers, it seems like stakes need to be high in Phase Two.
Aldrich Killian, played by Guy Pearce, is a character we don't know much about. In the comics, Killian developed the Extremis virus and sold it to terrorists. It's still not clear how big of a role it is, but it seems we will some conflict between Tony and Aldrich, especially over Pepper. We don't see much of the character in the trailer, and it's definitely not a coincidence when Stark says "...there is a hundred people who want to kill me", the screen cuts to Killian. We'll see how much problems is he going to cause Tony in the film.
The Mandarin is the archenemy of Iron Man. A character fans have been waiting to see since the first film. And now, they got their wish. Played by an Academy Award-winning actor Ben Kingsley, it should be great to see this character finally come to life. In the trailer (even though it's just for a second), we can spot that Mandarin will have his ten rings. Iron Man films have always been a bit grounded in Marvel Cinematic Universe, so it remains to be seen if these rings will have any fuction in the film.
For a brief moment in the trailer, we see a woman pushing Stark against a wall, while he looks all beaten up. This could very well be Stephanie Szostak's character, and there is a possibility that she might be playing a female version of Firebrand, who gets recruited by Mandarin in the comics. The reason why I'm putting this on the list, is because Szostak's name is pretty high on the credits, meaning that the character could be pivotal.
You see, there is something Shane Black likes to do with the films he is writing or directing. Four of the film he worked on are set during the holiday season (Lethal Weapon, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Last Boy Scout). Set photos suggested we will see this happening with Iron Man 3 too, and now I guess it's confirmed, based on the trailer.
"Some people call me a terrorist. I consider myself a teacher." Those words pretty much tell us what can we expect from Sir Ben Kingsley's portrayal of the iconic villain, 'The Mandarin'. In the trailer, we finally got a good look at his ten rings, but it remains to be seen what kind of purpose do they have. One thing seems to be confirmed: there won't be any magical elements to them. In the trailer analysis over at Entertainment Weekly, they got a quote from Kevin Feige about all this:
"Feige says we won’t get ice rays and fire beams from these rings, like in the comics, but what will we get? Smart money says they’re not just because the Mandarin has won a lot of Super Bowls."
In the comics, the ten rings have a near-limitless power and no Earth science can explain that power. Each ring has a function, so it will be very interesting to see what kind of use (if any) will they have in Iron Man 3. My guess: the rings will have some sort of technological fuction. Also, the site added this regarding the aliens:
"But this version of The Mandarin will not follow that same backstory, said Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios. Don’t expect aliens."
While aliens and magic were already introduced to Marvel Cinematic Universe (Thor, The Avengers), I guess it shouldn't be a surprise that we won't see any of that in this film.

James Franco has spoken out about reports he is dating Ashley Benson, saying there is no truth to the rumors.
“I also hear that I’ve been dating Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson. Hot damn, am I a lucky guy,” the 34-year-old actor wrote in a piece for Huffington Post.
“I wish I had actually gotten closer than the 13th row of the theater in Toronto where Kristen gave her On the Road Q and A, but I didn’t; not only did I not talk to her, I didn’t even go to the SoHo house where I supposedly asked her out on a date. As for Gomez and Benson, those are [Justin] Bieber‘s girls and I wouldn’t dare tangle with the Biebs. I heard he wants to kick my ass. Yikes!”
James and Ashley were caught cuddling at Universal Studios Hollywood last week and were also spotted on a romantic stroll in New York City’s Washington Square Park.

Britney Spears' father Jamie Spears sent a text message to Sam Lutfi back in 2007 ... threatening to beat the crap out of him so badly, he'd wind up in the hospital ... so says Lutfi.
Lutfi is on the stand in his defamation case against Britney and her family ... and has asked the judge for permission to use the text message as evidence in the trial.
According to Lutfi, the text reads, "If and when I met u one thing is going to happen I am going to jail and u r going to the hospital."
The judge has not decided whether or not the jury will be allowed to see the text.
During today's hearing ... Lutfi says Jamie made good on his threats and attacked him at Britney's house. Lutfi claims Jamie punched him in the solar plexus and threatened to kill him.
Sam says he eventually locked himself inside a game room to get away from Jamie.

Dancing with the Stars All Stars Freestyles to 'Gangnam Style'!
Congrats to Team 'Gangnam Style' -- a.k.a. American Psy -- for delivering what was in many ways the best and worst group dance Planet Mirrorballus has ever seen. Mostly worst! It was the best if you love tepid messes and things that make no sense, which obviously I do because it's season 15 and I'm still sitting here in my fringed boots typing about an alternate universe. Like Kelly Monaco said, "Sometimes… trainwrecks are fun to watch."

Fashion Star mentor Jessica Simpson opens up about shedding the postpartum pounds, admitting she’s not a supermodel and is not dropping the baby weight as quickly as other A-list moms.
The new mom, who has shed most of the 70 pounds she put on during her pregnancy, covers the latest edition of Us Weekly and says, “I feel positive about how I’ve done so far and really good about the goals I have set.”
Since welcoming her first child – 9-pound, 13-ounce daughter Maxwell Drew on May 1 with fiancé Eric Johnson - the fashion designer-singer has been working on losing the baby weight.
“I really have to separate myself from the world’s expectations and really just be healthy with myself,” she shares. “I’m not a supermodel. My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel. I’m just your everyday woman.”
Jessica has been meeting weekly with a tight-knit group that includes her mother and friends, as they focus on weight loss and living healthy.
Jessica’s trainer Harley Pasternak says he’s “never seen as consistent a weight loss” effort in 20 years on the job.
“Jessica’s right where she needs to be,” he said. “She’s very brave to do this in a healthy, more realistic way.”
Ming-Na Wen is joining the cast of Joss Whedon’s ABC pilot Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D.
She’ll play Agent Melinda May, an ace flier and weapons expert.
The character — a kinda damaged, but immensely soulful former soldier — sounds like a modified version of the Agent Althea Rice role we first learned about earlier in October.
The forthcoming pilot is based on a peacekeeping group that appeared in various Marvel comics and in the summer blockbuster film The Avengers, which Whedon wrote and directed. The title’s acronym refers to a secret peacekeeping organization called Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.
Sometimes the enemy of your enemy is your friend and this has happened several times before on The Vampire Diaries.
In an upcoming episode titled "The Killer", Stefan is forced to align himself with Klaus against Connor: "Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) form an uneasy alliance to try and contain the danger that Connor (guest star Todd Williams) has unleashed on the town.

McQueen), Matt (Zach Roerig) and April (guest star Grace Phipps) hostage at the Grill, Stefan and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) have a serious disagreement about the best course of action, and Elena (Nina Dobrev) is again caught between the two brothers. The situation quickly turns violent when Klaus sends one of his hybrids, Dean (guest star Blake Hood, “The Young and the Restless”) to stand up to Connor. Caroline (Candice Accola) is surprised to find Hayley (guest star Phoebe Tonkin) at the Lockwood mansion. Meanwhile, Professor Shane (guest star David Alpay) works with Bonnie (Kat Graham) to help her get past her fear and guilt."
