Starbucks will unveil its newest seasonal coffee… Teresa Giudice asks for a halfway house… Melissa Rivers’ inheritance… Katy Perry turns 30… and Mama June back with old boyfriend who just got out of prison
Starbucks will unveil its newest seasonal coffee concoction on November 12 — the Chestnut Praline Latte. Starbucks says this is the first holiday handcrafted beverage they’ve added to their winter drink menu in five years, joining traditional flavors like Gingerbread Latte and Peppermint Mocha. The Chestnut Praline Latte is topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of praline crumbs — but you can leave the toppings off if you want the skinny version….but WHY?? And if you have a nut allergy, no worries. No chestnut gets close to this drink. By the way, a grande Chestnut Praline Latte will cost you 330 calories. By comparison, the same size Pumpkin Spice Latte is 380 calories.
Teresa Giudice will serve her 15 months behind bars in the prison that inspired “Orange is the New Black.” Teresa had asked the judge to let her serve most of her sentence at a halfway house so she could do charity work during the week and see her kids on the weekend. The judge said no. So on January 5, Teresa will turn herself in to the Federal Correctional Facility in Danbury, CT.
Melissa Rivers has inherited the bulk of her mother’s estate. While Joan Rivers left something for her 13-year-old grandson Cooper, Melissa will inherit $75 million in cash and her mom’s $35 million condo on NY’s Upper East Side.
Katy Perry turns 30 on Saturday. She originally wanted to fly a large group of family and friends to Egypt for site-seeing, a cruise down the Nile and a HUGE birthday bash, but those plans were canceled due to security reasons. But no sad faces because the birthday party has been rerouted to Morocco!! Katy will now turn 30 in Marrakech.
When Mama June and Sugar Bear broke up, we all assumed it was to drum up ratings for “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” It turns out, though, that Mama June went back to her old boyfriend…….who just got out of prison after serving 10 years for child molestation!! June was dating Mark McDaniel in 2004 when he was convicted for molesting an 8-year-old who happened to be related to her!!! He was released this past March and is now a registered sex offender in Georgia. TMZ is reporting that Mama June has been secretly seeing Mark for MONTHS, sneaking away to hook up with him in motel rooms. TMZ reached out to TLC for comment. An official said, “We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series.”
