Was Ashton Kutcher involved in a famous murder?


Ashton Kutcher appeared in court yesterday in the trial of the infamous Hollywood Ripper. He had a date with Ashley Laron in 2001 to attend an awards show after party but she never showed up. He freaked out and went to police immediately when he found out that she had been killed because he was worried that he would be accused of her murder. He had actually been at her home that day and left fingerprints on her door looking for her. Kutcher testified that he looked in the windows of her apartment and thought he saw red wine stains in an empty apartment so he left.

Sweet boy... It's hard believe almost a month has already gone by. Time flies faster than I ever thought imaginable. My heart is so full!

Miranda Lambert is firing back at tabloid reports that she and her husband Brandon McLaughlin are already divorcing after only 100 days of marriage. Her publicist put out a statement that the story is completely made up


Mandy Moore posted pictures of herself at base camp on Mt. Everest after she and a group of friends climbed up to base camp. Moore said “There is so much magic in these mountains. They represent adventure in the grandest form and in a language all their own.”

There is so much magic in these mountains. They represent adventure in the grandest form and in a language all their own. The idea of standing at the base of the world's tallest peak with @eddiebauer, a brand that has been outfitting record-setting climbers since the beginning - from the first American ascent in 1963 (Jim Whittaker) to our guide @melissaarnot, the first American Woman to ascend and descend Everest without oxygen, is truly beyond my wildest imagination. Traversing this terrain has its challenges. Breathing at altitude, for instance, is not easy. One of the greatest gifts/lessons that Melissa simultaneously bestowed on us during this trek was the fine art of pressure breathing. It makes all the difference as you climb higher. It's essentially a big inhale and a sharp, forceful exhale, like you're blowing out a candle across the room, to open up your lungs, allowing you to use more oxygen, etc... Besides hydration and staying nourished, breathing is THE vital key in the fight against altitude sickness. It's also a major takeaway that I will be employing back to the real world whether I'm in the midst of a tough workout or a weird day. Mind blown. So as we weaved around the Himalayas from 14,400ft-16,200ft-17,600ft: this particular technique was essential in propelling us forward. Needless to say, this part of the world holds a very special place in @melissaarnot's heart so her willingness to share it, as well as her time, knowledge and endless trove of stories were so appreciated by all of us lucky enough to walk alongside her this past week. Her belief in our abilities to keep moving and ultimately make it to the base of the Mighty, Mighty Mt. Everest was so powerful. Spoiler alert: we made it!!! It's impossible to be lucky enough to arrive at the foot of these mammoth peaks and not be attuned to the palpable energy of all of those who came before and lost their lives in these mountains. The wave of emotion: respect, reverence, appreciation....that washed over us as we took in the prayer flags and yellow domed tents of basecamp AND sat on the rocks regarding the chortens that dot the hillside of the Tukla Pass the day before, profoundly
