SYDNEY (Reuters) – The dollar jumped to a 3-week top on Tuesday while Asian stocks edged up as a highly anticipated U.S.-Korea summit got underway in Singapore, potentially paving the way to ending a nuclear stand-off on the Korean peninsula.
If you’re currently a guest of The Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, you may have heard anguished cries of “Rahn, stahp!” this afternoon, as a security team struggled to do what Sammi Sweetheart never could — subdue the beast known as Agro Magro.
According to TMZ, Ron attempted to fight a civilian while lounging poolside with his fellow guidos today.
No word on yet on whether alcohol was a factor, but it absolutely, definitely was.
Hilariously, the other combatant kept shouting phrases like “I got that Gucci bag, what’s up?” and repeating the word “hustlin’,” which makes this the single most obnoxious event to ever take place anywhere.
It’s not currently known what caused the incident, but we’re gonna go out on a limb and guess that the combination of Ron-Ron juice and human growth hormone factored in.
Of course, if you’ve been watching the first season of Family Vacation, or even just keeping up with the cast out of morbid curiosity, then this sort of behavior probably won’t come as much of a surprise.
Ronnie has gone from supporting character to primary source of drama, primarily because of his constant fights with Jen Harley, the mother of his infant daughter.
On the show, we see Ronnie cheat on Jen with a French club-goer dubbed “French Fry.”
(The guidos’ nickname game isn’t terribly on point this season.)
On social media, we watch in horror as Ron refers to the mother of his child as a “c-m dumpster.”
Ron has been flying off the handle on a routine basis for years now, but lately, he’s either stepped up his game or lowered the bar, depending on whom you ask.
Sure, without his antics, JSFV would be an exceedingly boring affair with moments like Vinny’s haircut crisis providing the bulk of the dramatic tension.
But on the other hand … did we mention Ron called his ex a c-m dumpster on social media?
Like, we don’t expect the height of decorum from these people, but we also don’t want to see them get less mature and more gross with age.
But hey, maybe the Gucci guy deserved an ass-whupping today.
Based on what little we know about him, that seems very, very plausible.
But Ron’s a father now, so going forward, maybe he should let someone else deliver the beat-downs.
Watch Jersey Shore online to remind yourself of just how bonkers Ron has been this season.
Over the weekend, Josh Duggar’s son Marcus celebrated his fifth birthday.
Normally, Josh keeps a pretty low profile on social media, but he decided to make an appearance on Facebook in order to celebrate Marcus’ big day.
Needless to say, it didn’t go well.
The above photo appeared on the Duggars’ official Facebook page on Saturday, along with the following caption:
“Happy birthday to our sweet grandson, Marcus!” Josh’s parents wrote.
“We love your sweet, precious spirit, Marcus! You are growing up so fast and learning new things each and everyday! We love you and love watching you grow in the knowledge of the Lord.”
Josh made a tentative return to social media last week, but it seems his intention then was to quietly steal money from fans.
This is the first time in quite a long time that fans have seen a new photo of Josh.
It’s also the first confirmation in several months that — despite rumors of Anna leaving Josh — the family of seven is very much intact.
Some Duggar followers didn’t take the news so well:
“Josh should be castrated!” wrote one fan, adding:
“Those poor little girls are at risk for being prey to their own father! The plot to cover for this monster was a very Christian thing to do!”
“Ugh that josh tho,” commented another Facebook user.
Those sentiments were widely echoed, and the memory of Josh’s sexual misconduct clearly remains fresh for many.
And those folks remain thoroughly disgusted by his actions.
But as In Touch Weekly points out, a surprising number of fans are calling for forgiveness for Josh:
“A story of God’s love and restoration. Too bad others have such a difficult time forgiving. God bless this family,” one fan wrote.
“It’s so nice to see a photo of Anna, Josh and their beautiful family. Anna doesn’t post too often on Instagram,” remarked another.
Yes, it may be hard to believe, but there are folks out there who are fervently Team Josh.
We don’t know what’s more bizarre — that some people are so quick to forgive such shocking abuse, or that they’re eager to advertise their loyalty to Josh on Facebook.
In either case, it seems the eldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle won’t be going away anytime soon.

In a word? YIKES!
In another two words? EWWWW! GROSS!

The poor woman says the next to her was not only viewing adult entertainment while jetting through the apparently VERY friendly skies…

Shariat live-Tweeted this nauseating scenario, including the response of Southwest when she made the company aware of what was taking place.

The comedian, 24, got a black bunny ears mask — which is the artwork from the singer’s Dangerous Woman album — inked behind his ear. He also got Grande’s initials — AG — tattooed on his thumb.
The tattoos were done by London Reese from The Black Lantern and the artist shared a photo of Davidson’s bunny ears body art on Instagram on Saturday, June 2, captioning the pic, “We had a good night.”
Some commenters were concerned about the actor rushing to document his fledgling relationship, with one writing, “What if they break up? It’s kinda silly to get a tattoo related to someone you’ve been with for a short amount of time.”
But another expressed their love for the tribute, referring to the couple by their nickname and writing, “So happy for petiana.”
Another pointed out that Davidson also has a tattoo dedicated to his ex Cazzie David, who he split with in May after dating for two years.
Us Weekly confirmed on May 21 that Davidson and the “No More Tears Left to Cry” singer were dating. “It just started,” a source told Us at the time.
The pair made their relationship Instagram official earlier this week, with a Harry Potter-themed photo posted by Davidson that showed them wearing matching Hogwarts robes.
Grande also shared a pic of the Trainwreck actor kissing her on the cheek. “I thought u into my life,” she captioned the sweet snap. “Woah ! look at my mind.”
As previously reported, the Grammy nominee was in the audience on Friday, June 1, when Davidson performed his stand-up act at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino may still be under construction, but he’s already putting down some rock-solid foundation.
On Sunday, the Jersey Shore Family Vacation star took to Instagram to celebrate two years of sobriety. Sharing an inspiring message along with a pic of his two-year Narcotics Anonymous medallion, the reality star wrote that addicts “do recover” with the right mentality and support.
Sitch definitely has a support system in his longtime girlfriend (now fiancé) Lauren Pesce, whom he plans on tying the knot with later this year.
Though it’s not all sunny skies for the muscle head — Sorrentino is still facing jail time for tax fraud and evasion. But if he can get through Season 3 of Jersey Shore, we’re confident Sitch can get through anything!
See his celebratory post (below).
