Halle Berry Nude Photo Leaked? Celeb Jihad Morphs Actress’ Instagram Photo

Amid the ongoing nude photo leak scandal surrounding several actresses, website Celeb Jihad claimed to have found a nude photo of Halle Berry. However, it was later revealed that the purported nude photo of the Oscar-winning actress was photoshopped by the website to show her exposing her breasts.

The image in question was obtained from Berry’s Instagram account last week. The actress shared the photo of her wearing a laced top, captioning it: “Me when someone says ‘I’m coming over and I’ve got snacks.’” The photo did not show the actress exposing her breasts but showed off a hint of cleavage.

Man attempts to give serious BBC interview, regrets ever having children

This viral video might be the best lesson in “how to keep a straight face” in the most hilarious situation ever.

A very serious expert on South Korea appears on BBC World News via webcam to discuss the impeachment of South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye.

But just when he’s deep into a convoluted analysis on the meaning of democracy in the face of scandals, the impossible happens.

First, his daughter bursts in and starts dancing:

“I think one of your children just walked in,” says the presenter in studio, visibly amused:

Royal princess named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana

The princess

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, Kensington Palace has said.

The fourth in line to the throne will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.

There had been speculation that the couple would include the name of Diana in honour of Prince William’s mother.

Charlotte was born on Saturday in the Lindo Wing of London’s St Mary’s Hospital.

The BBC’s royal correspondent Peter Hunt said the Queen and other senior royals were told of the baby’s name before the announcement was made public.

He said that a Kensington Palace official, when asked about the couple’s choice, said: “We’ll let the names speak for themselves.”

Top Gears: Jeremy Clarkson goes on a night-time bike ride after BBC axe

2015-03-25T214657Z 698698366 GF10000038382 RTRMADP 3 BRITAIN-CLA

Jeremy Clarkson wrote that “cycling used to be how you got about when you were poor…now, though, it has evolved into something more. It’s gone beyond a way of life and become a political statement. A movement.”

Whether Clarkson – is now either poor, making a political statement or joining a new movement (of the “disgraced former BBC presenters”), we cannot yet tell, but he decided to make his first appearance since his Top Gear departure on two wheels rather than four.

Earlier on Wednesday, the BBC announced that Clarkson’s contract with Top Gear would not be renewed after an internal investigation by the broadcaster found that he had launched an “unprovoked physical and verbal attack” that left Oisin Tymon, one of the show’s producers, in hospital.

Earlier on Wednesday, the BBC announced that Clarkson’s contract with Top Gear would not be renewed after an internal investigation by the broadcaster found that he had launched an “unprovoked physical and verbal attack” that left Oisin Tymon, one of the show’s producers, in hospital.

The motoring aficionado emerged from his flat in west London on Wednesday evening to a sea of reporters clamouring for a statement.

When asked about his firing, he simply said: “I’m off out. Sorry.”

Regarding the decision, BBC director general Tony Hall said: “For me a line has been crossed. There cannot be one rule for one and one rule for another dictated by either rank, or public relations and commercial considerations.”

However, it may not be the end of Clarkson’s relationship with the BBC. The corporation’s creative director Alan Yentob said he would not rule out the Top Gear guru making a return.

“Of course I wouldn’t rule that out, but that’s not for now,” he said.

Mr Yentob confirmed that Clarkson would continue to be employed until his contract expires at the end of the month. He urged James May and Richard Hammond – both of whom have expressed doubts about continuing without Clarkson – to continue to work on Top Gear.
