A lot of people have been obsessed with the Murdaugh murders. Earlier this month, Alex Murdaugh was convicted of killing his wife and son on their family’s hunting estate in SC. He is now appealing that verdict. The hunting estate was put up for sale in February for $3.9M and it’s currently under contract. And on Thursday, Liberty Auction in Pembroke, Georgia, will be selling off items that belong to the Murdaugh family. We’re not sure if these pieces came from the hunting lodge or their family home, but photos of the auction items continue to be added the auction house’s Facebook page. Among the auction items are a leather living room set with Maggie Murdaugh’s initials monogrammed on the pillows, as well as lamps, dishes, and other household items. Liberty Auction is adding more photos to their Facebook page. They will not be taking online or absentee bids. If you want to bid, you have to show up in person at the warehouse.

Gwyneth Paltrow is being sued for hit-and-run ski accident back. This actually happened way back in 2016 in Park City, Utah, but the trial begins today. In his lawsuit, Terry Anderson — who is now 76 — claims Gwyneth was skiing wrecklessly when she slammed into him, “knocking him down hard, knocking him out, and causing a brain injury, four broken ribs and other serious injuries. Paltrow got up, turned and skied away, leaving Sanderson stunned, lying in the snow, seriously injured.” Sanderson also claims that Deer Valley employees tried to cover up what happened, and that a ski instructor went so far as to accuse HIM of using the crash. Anderson initially tried to sue for $3.1M, but a judge ruled he’s not entitled to punitive damages. The most he can get is $300K. Gwyneth has countersued for her attorney fees and $1 in damages. She is expected to testify.

Almost a year to the date that her conservatorship was lifted, Amanda Bynes was seen walking down a street near downtown LA early Sunday morning, and she was completely naked. According to TMZ, Amanda waved down a car and told the driver she was coming down from a psychotic episode before calling 911 herself. Amanda was taken to a nearby police station where it was determined that she needed to be placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold. TMZ’s sources say Amanda’s parents are not considering another conservatorship at this time because they take comfort in knowing she had the presence of mind to call and ask for help.
