– They say bad things happen in threes, and Zsa Zsa Gabor says quote "Jane Russell, Liz Taylor, I’m next." The 94-year old is so shocked by Taylor’s death.

– Happy birthday, Harry Houdini! That is if the magician and escape artist were still alive. He would have been 137-years old. He was born in 1874 in Hungary and died in 1926 at the age of 52, from a ruptured appendix. They say the rupture was caused by a college student who tested his indestructible abs with a very strong punch.
